Sheldon Adelson has passed away.
This was reported by Howie Klein, at Down with Tyranny this morning.
Sheldon Adelson, simultaneously a Mafia and a one-man Israeli front operation-- who has also been a conduit for political money from China-- has been the biggest single contributor to the Republican Party for many years and one often party's primary shot-callers. He died-- non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma-- last night in Malibu, age 87. Technically a dual citizen of the U.S. and Israel, he was the top Israeli agent in the U.S., openly bribing Republican politicians to bend to Israel's will. In the last two election cycles alone, he laundered nearly half a billion dollars into Republican campaigns. He was widely considered one of the most toxic influences on American politics in the past century and his death will be (quietly) celebrated by all good-government reformers.
Please note:..."who has also been a conduit for political money from China"...well, thanks for that, Howie. Now that the guy is dead, the truth can be told about just whose money it was he has been spending. I can't be the only person who has suspected as much all along.
Mitch McConnell is known to have bought the Majority, now Minority, Leadership with the money he hands out to Republican candidates AND he is married into a family of East Asian oligarchs, variously described as Chinese, Taiwanese and Chinese-American. So, I wonder where his various pacs come from?
I will leave it to Adelson's co-religionists to determine what the fate of his soul might be.
