Well, here’s some good news, I guess.
Dead Jews are always good news!
Sheldon Adelson, the founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Las Vegas Sands Corp., has died following a battle with cancer. He was 87.
Adelson was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2019 and recently stepped away from the company to resume his treatment, the company said on Jan. 7.
“Mr. Adelson was the first employee of Las Vegas Sands – “Team Member Number One” he liked to say. Today, more than 50,000 Sands team members have Dr. Adelson and the entire Adelson family in their thoughts and prayers and are grateful to have had their lives touched by a true force of nature,” according to a statement from Las Vegas Sands.
Adelson has been a longtime donor to the Republican Party, giving more than $430 million to conservatives during the 2020 campaign. He was an early and longtime supporter of President Trump during his initial run for the White House.
“Laura and I mourn the passing of a friend,” former President George W. Bush said in a statement. “He was an American patriot and a strong supporter of Israel. Sheldon was a generous benefactor of charitable causes, especially medical research and Jewish heritage education. He will be missed by many – none more than his beloved family.”
Basically, the fact that Trump had to rely on donors eventually was why his administration never became what it should have been, and Adelson was the biggest part of this problem.
So, it is good that he’s dead.
I’m hoping for the Republican Party to completely collapse, and with the new happenings in Israel, the way that whole game is changing quickly, these old Israel loving Jews aren’t really going to have a place funding the GOP.
It wasn’t just Trump he funded – he was basically the key figure creating the entire GOP Israel obsession.
Actually, that isn’t true – the main people doing that were the evangelical pastors, who are also funded by Israel.
Anyway – his death, right now, when the Republican party is collapsing, is symbolically very good.
We all saw what happened to Lindsey Graham.

Basically, at this moment, Josh Hawley is the last man standing in terms of relevant GOP politicians.
It’s his move now.
He can basically do whatever he wants.
Technically, Ted Cruz still has some clout, but people just frankly don’t like Ted Cruz much because he looks so weird, and has this generally uncanny way about him.
