1. And lo, when he sinned, it was not really him, but a young apprentice who fetched the coffee

When the market of stocks was good, it was a miracle! It was his doing! And when it fell, it was not his doing! IT WAS NOT HIM! It was the doings of that knave, Barack HUSSEIN Obama, working in service of the First of the Fallen, commonly known as George Soros. Amen.

4. "And yea verily, selah, did the supporters of Trump screech and caper and fling their dung

in their blind love, selah. And when the forces of opposition rose up against the sinner king, did he cry 'Unfair! Unfair! Very unfair!" and all his followers did agree as they capered."

22. Except Rabbis do not tell Christians what goes into their Bible.

She would need to take it up with whatever denomination of Christianity would listen to her.

30. True, but my statement stands

The old Testament was included in the canon of the Bible, but Jewish people do not see the bible as part of their Holy Books. They have the Torah, the Nevi'im, and the Ketuvim which would include the parts that Christians see as the Old Testament. They are however, not the same. The Bible is the Old and New Testaments taken together in whatever, each Christian group has accepted as canon.

Perhaps the reporting is inaccurate or Adelson erred. I have not ever heard a Jewish person talk about "The Bible" unless they were referring to what Christians read. I have heard the "Scriptures", The book, or the TNK or Tanak (sp?). Perhaps Christians might say the Jewish Bible, but that is likely culturally insensitive, though I could be wrong.

Adding a book to the Bible or the Scriptures of Judaism however is not likely.

Trump is an idiot, has done actually very little for Jewish people, and the Adelson's are not known for their intellectual prowess.

35. Hebrew Bible

The Hebrew Bible or Tanakh[a] (/tɑːˈnɑːx/;[1] Hebrew: תַּנַ״ךְ‎, pronounced [taˈnaχ] or [təˈnax]), is the canonical collection of Hebrew scriptures, including the Torah. These texts are almost exclusively in Biblical Hebrew, with a few passages in Biblical Aramaic (in the books of Daniel and Ezra, the verse Jeremiah 10:11,[2] and some single words).


Lutheranism and Protestant denominations that follow the Westminster Confession of Faith accept the entire Jewish canon as the Old Testament without additions, although in translation they sometimes give preference to the Septuagint (LXX) rather than the Masoretic Text; for example, see Isaiah 7:14.

33. Most ardent Christians use the New Testament as their guide for Christianity.

Besides, most of the the stories in the Old Testament are rewrites of some of the stories in the Epic of Gilgamesh which pre-dated the Old Testament by about 3000 yeas.

21. I have a friend and neighbor who is related to her.

She has said repeatedly over the years to me, Miriam's politics was opposite of her husbands. She was Liberal and heavy donor to
Democratic party. I never met Miriam. I can't possibly verify. 'but this report sure does turn that upside down.

one thing about my friends cousins related to Miriam, they're enraged, no furious about a tax reform related to the inheritance tax.

boo effin hoo.

27. She once dropped her purse into Congress. Literally.

Bibi Netanyahu was extolling the virtues of Dumpy the Deranged Dingbat to a joint session when Mrs. Adelson bumped her loot bag off the ledge and onto the head of Brad Ashford, Democrat of Nebraska.
