Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson Discuss 2016 Election and Ensuring US Support for Israel

By: Monday November 10, 2014 3:53 pm

Two billionaires – one aligned with the Democratic Party, one aligned with the Republican Party – had a surprisingly frank discussion Sunday before the Israeli-American Council. The billionaires, Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban, support different parties but both agree that the US must be closely aligned with Israel and feel President Obama has not done enough.

Billionaire Haim Saban has been a major supporter of the Democratic Party and is expected to be one of Hillary Clinton’s patrons should she decide to run for president in 2016. Billionaire Sheldon Adelson is a major supporter of the Republican Party and played a significant role in the 2012 Republican Party presidential primary and is expected to do so again this cycle.

Colbert Swallows the Hill-Pill

By: Friday August 8, 2014 7:00 pm

After a long day of anti-comedy at work I sat down determined to be info-tained by watching the comedy news. The Daily Show had ended but I consoled myself that I was not too late for the Colbert Report (better show, anyhow).

I did decide to stay for the pre-interview skits and turn the channel when Clinton came on to watch something that would hopefully be less offensive.

Unfortunately, my plan was dashed when Hill hit the stage early for the very staged “interview.”
