Criminal GOP donor Sheldon Adelson bribes Trump & GOP with over $122 million to ban online gambling

Sheldon Adelson, chairman and chief executive officer of Las Vegas Sands, and his wife Miriam spent more than $122 million during the 2018 midterm elections on behalf of Republican candidates. That was more than any other outside spender, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington-based research group.

The Adelsons in October also gave $500,000 to a legal defense fund set up to help Trump aides caught up in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the president’s campaign committee colluded with Russia, Internal Revenue Service filings show.

1. republicans embraced a draft-dodging casino hustler* just as they embraced...

the "easy money" of Las Vegas, the oil money of Saudi Arabia, and the filthy black-market money of the evil empire** russia.

Proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that republican casino-style family values are degenerate, and suck cesspool scum.

* Comrade Dirty Donny, the republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief
** per the warning to republicans of their former IDOL ronald frigging reagan (r)


republican money-bagman, and auxilliary family-values role model, Sheldon Adelson:

4. Given how destructive gambling can be....

It seems to me it's better if someone has to make some effort to got to the casino rather than their nearest internet device. Of course I understand that Adelson was not doing this to make a better society, that part would be more of an unintended consequence.

6. Banning online gambling is like banning alcohol

People will find a way. Ban regulated state gambling and they just go to overseas sites

5. Just when the wealthy thought they had everything...

“Bought and paid for” in America, Sheldon Adelson needs to spend more money to keep his “pursuit of happiness” from ending.
I just hope the gop won’t let that poor little billionaire down.

8. Gambling on user written and dynamically adaptable algorythms. . . Seems legit!

.

It seems like they are getting a rush because they know it's fugazi, almost like performing self-harm.



All of those online gambling, and computer controlled casino games are fugazi. Then, if you win, they can claim an error.
