Newt's tendency to burn

Newt's tendency to burn through money will liquidate the $10 million Adelson et al have given him very quickly.

They campaign the same way they govern.

A Presidential Pardon probably sound real good

whether Newt or Obama wins. Not to mention a whole lot cheaper than the alternatives.

I guess Adelson

must be looking for some favors, looks like he needs some favors is what I should say. Let's hope the Santorum, Romney, or Paul campaign see this and get on the bandwagon.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

lol, foreign officials?

What about domestic ones? I'm sure that rabbit hole is much deeper.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

LOL

Casino draws in organized

Casino draws in organized crimesters.. I am so shocked.

You probably can't even run a casino in Macau without cutting in the triads in some way. It's bound to happen. That's not the issue.. the issue is whether you want someone involved with that kind of business as president. But I guess you don't, or you would be reading this on the www.dailynewt.com, lol.

Hit the Nevada newspaper's with this...

Nevada GOP establishes special caucus for suspected Felon.

Another zinger to put in our arsenal!

We may need it for defense against possible false flag events. This is how it can go for us now.

Q: "Ron Paul, how do you plan to distance yourself from these awful voters who showed up to the ballot box in KKK attire, do you plan to return their donations and publicly denounce them for our cameras?"

A: "(giggle) I'll do that as soon as Newt returns about 10 MILLION dollars and renounces his donators with strong allegations and hard evidence of bribing foreign officials! I think those kinds of people are much more harmful to society than a bunch of useful idiots!..." (Then he can turn it around into a lecture on personal responsibility while running down the clock to prevent further demagoguery from the presstitute. ZING!!!)

I certainly hope this catches the attention of the campaign!

Sheldon Adelson, another

Sheldon Adelson, another crony capitalist supporting Gingrich.

Adelson enriching himself by buying influence through the government to fence out the competition. Just like Solyndra, or Warren Buffet, or General Electric.

Being under criminal

Being under criminal investigation by the Justice department and SEC is more serious.

interesting

so in the Ron Paul camp, we have to hear about $100 donations from some crackpot racist group, and Paul is always asked to give the contributions back. I wonder if the media will ask Newt if he should give the $10million back to this couple of donors?

We cannot solve todays problems using the mindset that created them. - Albert Einstein

Adelson is

an Orthodox Jew and needed to keep "Holy" his Sabbath thereby the GOP had to change the caucus times to suit his "holiness" - Serial Hypocrisy!
It's all power it has nothing to do with reverence. And, furthermore, the GOP had to have known about the criminality being investigated. Whenever I receive requests for money from the GOP I use their return envelope and send a Ron Paul bumper sticker in it. LOL

LOL!

you sly devil!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

This is more important

This is more important because Adelson was behind the anti-semite smears and owns an Israel newspaper. He's as big a dirtball as you can get.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Really?

And here I thought Soros had that sewn up!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

If he is bribing foreign officials

What do you think will happen on caucus night at his location?

Nevada had a corruption

Nevada had a corruption problem last time. Besides Adelson, it has a large mormon population and borders Utah. I have been thinking there might be problems, way before that story broke.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

He will use the Chinese

He will use the Chinese Triads to round up and kidnap some people to vote for Gingrich in the "special" caucus.

The "special" caucus sounds like a front for voter fraud. Instead of laundering money, he will be laundering votes.
