Thread: Sheldon Adelson Loses $10B

  1. #1

    Default Sheldon Adelson Loses $10B

    Las Vegas Sands has watched its stock plummet by nearly 30% on the year thanks to declining revenue in Macau (essentially the Las Vegas of China) resulting from heightened government regulation. This has led many to question the long-term viability and growth potential of the company.

    As a result, Adelson has seen nearly $10 billion of his net worth vanish, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. But this hasn't been the first time Adelson has faced adversity. At the height of the financial crisis in 2009, Adelson's net worth fell from $28 billion to $3 billion as Sands amassed $10 billion in debt to finance more than $19 billion of expansions in Vegas, Macao, and Singapore during 2007.

    The market crashed soon afterward, and the stock price of Las Vegas Sands plummeted by more than 99% from its peak in October 2007:

    The End of Crispy Creme Christie





    NY Times: Christie Roams, and Popularity Suffers at Home

    By KATE ZERNIKE

    As Gov. Chris Christie considers a run for president and spends more time outside New Jersey, his favorability among residents is at a low, polls show.





    REBUTTAL BY

    Ever since he misspoke before the GOP's ZionistKing-maker, casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, it's been all downhill for the Jersey Fatboy. Chris "Crispy Creme" Christie is losing popularity points as rapidly as he is shedding pounds of lard, post-surgery. Poor fatboy. He tried so hard and had even appeared to overcome the BridgeGate scandal. There was theobligatory family trip to Israel to don the obligatory beanie and do the obligatory bow before Satan's wall; and the weight-loss surgery; and the weird, self-effacing buffoonery on late night TV shows; and the two dinners he had with Henry Kissinger; and the "Presidential-looking" trips to Canada and Mexico; and the shameless kissing of Adelson's ring, and other parts, in Las Vegas.

    Degrade and debase yourself all you want fatso; you're finished!
    When Crispy Creme blew his chance by misspeaking at the Adelson event, Jeb Bush became Adelson's boy. At that March 2014 event, Christie, invoking his 2012 trip to Israel, shocked the GOP Jewish Coalition with this remark:
    “I took a helicopter ride from the occupied territoriesacross and just felt personally how extraordinary that was to understand, the military risk that Israel faces every day.”
    As soon as Christie mentioned “the occupied territories,” members of the Israel First brigade were clearly heard grumbling. You see, this phrase is offensive to the delicate sensibilities of the psycho-Zionists because they believe that ALL of Palestine(and then some!) belongs to them, the "chosen" people. According to Politico, arse-kisser Christie then met personally with Adelson at the billionaire’s office in the Venetian hotel and casino to grovel and apologize. Politico stated that: "Christie clarified in the strongest terms possible that his remarks today were not meant to be a statement of policy” and that he charactered his use of the term as a "mispeaking".


    The Jersey Fatboy had it right the first time!
    Chrispy Creme's slip-of-the-tongue was a big deal. A Google search for "Christie occupied territories" now yields 44,000 results and"Christie occupied territories apology" yields 27,000 results

    Adelson reportedly accepted Christie’s explanation, but make no mistake, the Jersey Fatboy's Presidential dream died at that moment. For a man whose former obesity was exceeded only by his undiminished pomposity, this must come as a real blow to his super-sized ego. Move on fatboy. Adelson's black heart, as well as millions of ill-gotten dollars, belong to Jeb Bush now.




    Crispy Creme: "Please Godfather. Forgive me."
    Adelson: "You're out fat one. Jeb has out-Jewed you."

    Palestinian Loss of Land pictures above.

    It reminds me of a story when I was a teenager. My brother and I were on our way to the drug store when we got behind this convertible with the top down and a hulking, muscular marine, all sun tanned, with movie star sunglasses, profiling like he was king of the world and the desire of every female on earth. I must have laughed my head off, but did not realize he could see me, probably in his rear view mirror. My brother and I went into the store. We each went our own way. Suddenly in front of me loomed this same marine angrily saying something about my laughing at him when he was driving down the street, asking what I thought was so funny. I should explain here that my brother was an officer in the 82nd Airborne and had just graduated from Airborne Ranger school at Fort Benning, Georgia. He heard the commotion and before I knew what was happening he jumped in between me and the marine. Face to face, chin to chin, like a drill sergeant, I will always remember what he said to that marine in a rougher voice than I had ever heard from him,"When you fuck with a buck," he said angrily, "You get an antler up your ass!" I about fell over. The marine began to apologize profusely, tried to explain himself, then slunk quickly away. This is a memory I will never forget.

    Nice memory but hardly appropriate for some kind of weird comparison to what happened to the Palestinians. Here are four outrages: images that should make any thinking, fair-minded American cringe in shame...

    Interview with IDF Sergeant

    "In the war I felt pretty secure, because the IDF is a thousand times stronger than they are, you see tanks and D-9s (armored bulldozers). It’s like starting a fist fight with a baby. Sometimes you can’t understand it..."

    It’s like starting a fist fight with a baby

    testimony catalog number: 340261
    rank: Staff Sergeant
    unit: Paratroopers Reconnnaissance
    area: North of Gaza strip
    period: 2008 - 2009

    Let’s begin with your entry. Where did you enter the Gaza Strip?
    We crossed the fence. The first day was the scariest. All the tension that built up during those days [of waiting] – you point your weapon at every bush you see. Then you become indifferent, not too much, but less [tense] than the first day. You hear gunfire and bombings and planes overhead.


    You went in to the paratroopers’ section, in the northern Gaza Strip?
    Yes, we came in from the north and took up a position in a building. We started doing guard shifts in the building.


    Was the building already empty or did you clear it?
    We cleared it. You don't throw a grenade into every room, but fire a lot at the building beforehand, and then you go in and 'open 'up every room properly.


    You go into the building shooting live fire?

    The difference between your view and mind is that I believe the Israelis were fully justified in defending themselves, especially in the cases of the larger wars between them and the Arab states, and that the land taken in those actions were the spoils of war, and necessary to ensure greater security for the Israeli state, which is surrounded by hostile forces outnumbering them by tens of millions. You buy a different narrative, that of Israel bent on taking Palestinian land for the purpose of fulfilling their God-promised destiny of regaining the whole of Palestine. Sure, there are some individuals who feel that way, and on top of that, the continuous hostilities against the Israeli state, even the ones you consider piddling (the mortar attacks, the rocket attacks, the kidnappings, the suicide bombings, the other bombings of public places crowded with people), have probably convinced a lot of Israelis that the only way they will ever get peace is to wipe out all the Palestinians and take their land. War creates those kinds of feelings. But the fact that Israel gave back Gaza to the Palestinians, including thriving businesses they had established there, and including the elimination of settlements of Israelis which the Israeli people fought stubbornly against the government to hold on to, convince me that the general sentiment of the Israeli government is not one of imperialism, but one of earnestly desiring peace. The opposite seems true of Palestine which is guilty of one provocative action after another in a long line dating all the way back to the establishment of the Jewish state 66 years ago.

    It seems your continually siding with Israel, whatever their latest atrocity, is something like the demise of the North American Indians at the hands of a much more powerful and techno-savvy Superior Race. That evolution was called Manifest Destiny by the White invaders.

    No doubt you also agreed with the principle of Manifest Destiny. The Inferiors' time had come to the Americas. So it is also for the pathetic and inferior Palestinians... at the hands of a merciless and cruel tide of Zionists. Look at the ever-shrinking land of Palestine. It's Manifest Destiny that they should disappear from history. After all, they are subhumans... favourite term of the Zios when they refer to Palestinians. Interestingly, subhumans was the term the Nazis used for the Jews.

    Not at all.

    The defeat of the Ottoman Empire which gave Britain rights over Palestine are far different than the intrusion of Europeans into America. First, the Ottoman Empire itself was built by unwanted, imperialistic invasion. Second, the Ottoman Empire aligned itself with Germany in a war that I believe the United States and its allies justly fought.

    In the case of the European invasion of the Americas, there was no right of colonization. Europeans ignorantly saw themselves as civilized and the native Americans as savages, or at best, primitives, an oddity. The entire dialogue between European settlers and native Americas was decided time and again by the Europeans' greater technology and superior weaponry. It was not a fair fight. It was more powerful nations taking advantage of less powerful nations, exploiting a land that was not rightfully theirs. It was a land that allowed for peaceful coexistence, but the Europeans forced it to be on their terms due to their superior firepower. It was not a "legal" colonization, but a colonization as a guest of a nonviolent host whose welcome the Europeans violated repeatedly. If it was acquisition by conquest, it was not a just war on the Europeans' part. They left their native lands to pursue freedom and in doing so they subjected a new land to a tyranny of their own. In a very real sense, American freedom is based on a tyranny imposed on a native American population. How I wish that Palestinians had always wanted to be Israel's friends. If that had been the case, Israel would have no leg to stand on. But the constant hostilities against Israel from day one makes me side with Israel, while in the case of America, I hold the United States responsible for the decimation of the native American nations. They invited us in and we in turn took over their house and locked them in the basement. Am I overstating the case? I know there were countless misunderstandings and so forth, but the bottom line was superior firepower, not equitable resolution of grievances and differences.

    GOP Senator Lindsey Graham Vows To Follow Leader Of Another Nation Instead Of His Own President

    JANUARY 3, 201 5 7:11 PM

    President Obama is the duly elected leader of the United States. As the head of our government, President Obama should command the loyalty of members of Congress, even if they disagree with him on political issues. Therefore, pledging allegiance to a foreign leader should be unthinkable.

    But US Senator Lindsey Graham is openly professing his loyalty, and that of his Republican comrades, to the leader of another country instead of his own president and the American people.

    During a visit to Jerusalem in Israel on Sunday, the senator from South Carolina kissed the ring of Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu and declared that the Republican-controlled Congress would follow his lead on foreign policy decisions in the Middle East instead of President Obama.

    According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
    U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said in Jerusalem that the Senate will vote on an Iran sanctions bill next month.

    Graham (R-S.C.), who is expected to take over as chairman of the Foreign Appropriations Subcommittee when the Republicans assume control of the Senate in January, met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Israeli capital on Saturday night.

    Graham told Netanyahu that “the Congress will follow your lead” and will want to have a say about any final deal.
    In addition, Graham also threatened the United Nations with a “violent backlash” from Republicans if a resolution is passed to create a Palestinian state.
    “Any effort by the French, the Jordanians or anyone to avoid direct negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians over the peace process, anyone who tries to take this to the U.N. Security Council, there will be a violent backlash by the Congress that could include suspending funding to the United Nations,” Graham said. “We will not sit back and allow the United Nations to take over the peace process.”

    Ironically, the job of the United Nations is to maintain peace in the world through international cooperation. And yet, here is a United States Senator openly threatening to hurt the UN while simultaneously pressing his lips against the ass cheeks of the Israeli president who has made genocide against Palestinians his top foreign policy goal. The Israeli genocide against Palestinians has inflamed tensions in the Middle East. As such, the Israelis are the ones threatening peace right now, not the United Nations.

    Lindsey Graham is a disgraceful American. Rather than support President Obama and back policies that would help bring peace to an increasingly violent region of the world, Graham is betraying his country and his president by openly pledging his allegiance to the leader of a foreign nation.

    That sounds an awful lot like treason. Basically, Graham is saying that no matter what President Obama does to bring peace to the region, Graham and his fellow Republicans will work to undermine his administration and the will of the American people on behalf of a foreign leader. That is not only dangerous to our democracy, it’s a threat to the lives of our servicemen and women since Congress has the power to declare war even if the president doesn’t believe war is necessary.

    What a creep. This Graham is yet another pathetic United States politician who shamelessly kisses Bibi's ring at the same time kisses his arse. Bibi seems to have hypnotized American politicians, (after AIPAC bribed or blackmailed them). The war V Iran looms; yet another war fought for Israel, by the stupid Americans.
