The Urban Dictionary defines "forked tongue":

"A person who says one thing and does another as defined by Native Americans describing the first Illegal Aliens, the Anglo-Saxons breaking promises and treaties, with a snake's tongue for them taking their land by force with no compensation and forcing them to live in inhospitable areas like Oklahoma which Indians avoided before the advent of reservations."

Christie's staff failed to provide their boss with a "forked tongue" Zionist dictionary.

Christie must have heard the ripples of disapproval and surprise that came from his National Jewish Coalition audience.  He then heard enough from his staff to rush over and apologize to Adelson.

The casino oligarch has yet to name his preferred 2016 Republican presidential candidate.

Who can say, the Christie apology for inadvertently speaking the truth, may turn out to be the apology that wins him the Adelson primary.

Adelson, who is chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corp., a casino and resort operating firm, has two major passions: Israel and casino gambling, especially Israel.

With these passions in mind, according to Media Matters he reportedly spent nearly $150 million in an effort to influence the 2012 presidential election with donations to a super PAC aligned with Mitt Romney and other outside groups.

"Before switching allegiance to Romney, Adelson had donated millions to Newt Gingrich. He has also given generously in the past to super PACs associated with a variety of Republican politicians, including Scott Walker, John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, George W. Bush, and Eric Cantor."

Looking ahead to the 2016 Republican primaries, at Las Vegas, Adelson had private talks with Gov. Christie (R-NJ), Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI), Gov. John Kasich (R-OH), and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.  (Pictured here).

Another possible presidential aspirant, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, was a no-show to the Las Vegas RJC event.

Time magazine offers this explanation for his absence:

"Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is hard at work laying the groundwork for an almost certain presidential campaign in 2016, but as he broadens his support among libertarian and younger voters, there's a budding counter campaign to take him down if he becomes a threat to actually win the nomination.

"At the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) meeting in Las Vegas this weekend, Paul was nowhere to be found, but his presence was felt in the form of a straw man -- and frequent worry. Speaker after speaker, from former Florida governor Jeb Bush to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, laid into Paul's more isolationist views on foreign policy.

"They never mentioned the lawmaker by name, but the message came across loud and clear."

What was clear in Las Vegas, is that a presidential aspirant cannot possibly be blessed by Adelson unless he/she demonstrates a willingness for the U.S. to engage militarily in those places dictated by Israel.
