VT: On a personal basis, Sheldon Adelson was never an overtly bad person, not like Trump or Lindsay Graham, the fawning coward and back stabber.  Adelson made billions in gambling and associated unseemly and horrific ways.  He also financed charities and Sheldon and Miriam were always wonderful hosts and kind and…overtly…sensible people.

What they did, use their power to push political extremism onto the American people, financing Israeli apartheid, financing the suffering of the Palestinian people while buying hundreds of elective offices in the US…that was a crime or it should have been.

Citizens United is about Adelson.  Find who he gave money to…thousands of politicians and you have bigots, racists, thieves of every kind, polluters, the most corrupt of the corrupt, all supported by Adelson.

They destroyed America.  Trump was his boy. So many others, maybe not as bad but who is?

JTA) — Sheldon Adelson, the Jewish casino magnate whose philanthropy shaped American and Israeli politics, has died at 87.

Adelson, the chief executive of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, had an especially outsized influence in Las Vegas, the seat of his global gaming empire where many Jewish institutions are named after him and his wife, Miriam.

Adelson was a megadonor to Republican causes who, in his final years, was a supporter of President Donald Trump but reportedly fell out of favor with Trump over the size of his gifts. In one of his final big purchases, Adelson reportedly paid $67 million for the mansion in Israel that was the US ambassador’s residence until Trump moved the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Born in Boston in 1933, Adelson was known for his deep and polarizing involvement in local, national and international politics, especially his support for Israel and the Republican Party. In the 2020 election cycle, the couple were the fifth-biggest political donors nationally — and that was before they reportedly embarked on a late spending spree aimed at keeping Trump and other Republican politicians in office.

His aggressive approach resulted in conflict at times: In 2019, a federal judge ordered him to pay millions of dollars in fees to the National Jewish Democratic Council for using what the judge called “legal sadism” to effectively put the group out of business.

But during the coronavirus pandemic, Adelson also gained attention for being magnanimous to the thousands of employees of his casinos, whom he kept paying long after other Las Vegas casinos cut off paychecks to their workers.
