Sheldon Adelson

Newt Nyet For VP?

If anyone has been campaigning to be Donald Trump's running mate it is Newt Gingrich.  He even had backing from casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who had just pledged a reported $100 million to help Trump's campaign and get a high level job for the former speaker of the House.

Is 2016 The Year Of The Jew?

Ann Coulter complains GOP presidential hopefuls are pandering to all "those f***ing Jews" with their strong statements in support of Israel. To the dismay of the anti-Semites, there's more to the 2016 campaign than politicians pandering to Jewish supporters with pledges of undying loyalty to Israel.
