    Palazzo, Venetian welcome veterans to Las Vegas in style By Marco Villarreal CREATED Dec. 5, 2012 Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It's the season of giving and it's especially nice when the people on the receiving end have already given so much to protect our nation. Wounded war veterans were given a well-deserved "thank you" at the Palazzo Wednesday afternoon. Joined with the Armed Forced Foundation, veterans were greeted at the hotel with applause and cheers from hundreds of team members from the Palazzo and the Venetian. Veterans came in with close family and loved ones; some physically supported or...

    The Obama campaign seems to be a little worried about cash and they're willing to attack wealthy Republicans who donate to the Romney campaign without giving their backgrounds or context. Last night, Team Obama sent an email warning of billionaire Sheldon Adelson. Adelson owns the Venetian resort in Las Vegas and funded Newt Gingrich's primary campaign. Now, Adelson is shifting his support to Romney and Democrats aren't happy.  Friend -- Today, just 72 hours after joining the GOP ticket, Paul Ryan is making a pilgrimage to the Sands' Venetian casino in Las Vegas to kiss the ring of Sheldon Adelson,...

    Beware talk of Dubai being home to the world's biggest hotel. The recently expanded Venetian hotel in Las Vegas now offers 7,000 rooms - topping the 6,500 rooms at the planned Asia Asia in Dubailand. The Venetian's new $2bn, 50-storey Palazzo extension adds two award-winning restaurant franchises and a nightclub run by Jay-Z. In total the hotel now offers 50 restaurants, cafés, bars and banqueting halls can serve 10,000 diners a night. Asia Asia, due to open in 2010, plans for 6,500 rooms (of which 5,100 will be four-star and 1,400 five star), but, with plenty of desert space, could...

    Ads attack Las Vegas Sands kingpin’s largesse to GOP Sheldon Adelson is being taught some blunt lessons about politics after aggressively inserting himself into state and national races this year. The majority shareholder of Las Vegas Sands and leading Republican fundraiser, who hasn’t been so publicly involved in politics since 1998, has himself become an issue in several House races across the country and could be targeted in many more. Adelson money — Forbes ranks him the 12th-richest man in the world — is pushing three ballot questions before Nevada voters. One would require two-thirds of voters to approve tax...

    All too familiar with the gambles of war, Jimmy Kinsey, Kyle Riley and a few dozen fellow soldiers landed in the desert. But for these guys this Memorial Day, the most at stake is a few bucks. The soldiers-turned-high rollers took a private jet to Las Vegas over the weekend for an all-expenses-paid getaway with all the perks normally saved for casinos' richest regulars. They were greeted at the airport by Wayne Newton, chilled backstage with the guys from Blue Man Group and hobnobbed with Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino mogul who runs Las Vegas Sands Corp. and paid for...
