Mr. Adelson, by some estimates worth as much as $22 billion, presides over a global empire of casinos, hotels and convention centers whose centerpiece is the Venetian in Las Vegas, an exuberant monument to excess with canals, singing gondoliers and acres of slot machines. That fortune is a wellspring of financial support for Mr. Gingrich, who has benefited from $17 million in political contributions from Mr. Adelson and his wife, Miriam, in recent years, including $10 million in the last few weeks that went to a super PAC supporting him.

“....Venetian in Las Vegas, an exuberant monument to excess with canals, singing gondoliers and acres of slot machines.”
Around the corner from the NY Times Building is the Times Square area, an “exuberant monument to excess” with pimps, pickpockets, prostitutes, theaters, acres and acres of filth, and a place that burns up more energy than any city in New York state.
There is no evidence that Adelson seeks to shape the world after his own ideology and is prepared to spend several fortunes doing it. There is no evidence that he, like Soros, meddles in the affairs of other countries.
Finally, there is no evidence that Gingrich's supporter is sinister, that he is tainted by collaboration with Nazis, that he has been indicted by foreign countries, that he has infiltrated and suborned an American political party, that he has undermined foreign governments or crashed currencies for personal profit.
In short, he stands up very well in comparison to George Soros.
Let people say what they want. At least now, Newt can compete with RINO-Rom and his millionaire buddies and with Obozo and George Soros. This guy will be able to neutralize Obozo’s Billion dollar war chest this Fall. THIS IS WONDERFUL NEWS IMO. I wish he’d buy Newt 30 min. of prime time on every local TV Station in FL this Monday night so Newt could share his heart with the people of Florida.
Now we need the Koch Brothers to toss-in 10 or 20 million to keep the NEWTster a float and on the attack.
You mean Saint George, right?
Just another transparent hit piece in the continuing desperate assault against the one real threat to the corrupt media/politico axis.
Mr.Adelson is a big supporter of our wounded warriors.
Note to myself... When in Vegas do some business with the Venetian.....
