Oy Vey? AIPAC Capo Sheldon Adelson summons Trump for ‘private meeting’ on Israel
December 21, 2015
Well, it seems as if The Donald has been summoned by the Kingmaker himself, Mr. Sheldon Adelson.Yes, that kind old man who just loves to be involved in “the process” of choosing who gets into power in America.
No doubt Adelson called The Donald in for a debriefing on how to feel about Israel, and more importantly, whether or not Israel will be top priority should he make it into the White House.

Readers should not forget that it was this same Sheldon Adelson who was throwing around his spare millions in order to derail the Ron Paul 2012 presidential campaign. Adelson pumped large sums of money into newly formed Israel Lobby Super PACs, with millions used to inflate the unelectable Newt Gingrich to help push Ron Paul from the spotlight, and even more millions used to to run a series of anti-Ron Paul adverts in strategic TV markets like South Carolina – all in the effort to help kill a Ron Paul presidential run.

Speaking two weeks ago to the Republican Jewish Coalition in Washington, Trump wavered in answering a question about whether he would consider Jerusalem the undivided capital of Israel, drawing boos from the crowd.
Courted by most of the Republican candidates and widely expected to be the party’s top donor in the November 2016 presidential election, Adelson said earlier on Friday during a news conference that he may wait until February’s primaries to decide who to back. He described the field of Republican candidates as “all very good.”…
