Casino Mogul Adelson Vows to Bankroll Effort to Stop Rand Paul Campaign

• antiwar.com

New reports are emerging today that Sheldon Adelson, casino magnate and 10th richest man in the world, intends to bankroll the campaigns of a number of Republican hawks in 2016, with a particular eye toward foiling Sen. Rand Paul (R – KY) in his White House bid.

Adelson spent some $150 million on Republican candidates in 2012, and the $15 million he gave to Newt Gingrich kept his failed presidential bid going long after it likely would have otherwise.

The billionaire is known for being extremely hawkish, and called on the Obama Administration to fire some nuclear weapons willy-nilly into the desert in 2013 to try to intimidate Iran, and to tell them "the next one is in the middle of Tehran."

Money speaks loudly though, and despite Adelson's policies being far-afield of the mainstream in America, a number of people hoping to be this cycle's hawk-of-choice have been making trips to Las Vegas to court him.

Isn't it amazing how these creatures who have lived most of their years try to sabotage the lives of the generations that follow theirs for their fantasy of how they want the world to be?
