    Casino magnate Steve Wynn was recently interviewed by Jon Ralston, host of "Face to Face with Jon Ralston," on Nevada's NBC affiliates. For much of the interview, he was highly critical of President Obama and his policies. This is not a new position. Wynn has gone after Obama in his company's earnings conference calls. What was new was his aggressive criticism of the Federal Reserve's current easy monetary policy, comparing quantitative easing to a Ponzi scheme: "The demand for American bonds wasn't as great as what it used to be. So what we did is what Bernie Madoff went to...

"I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bull's-eye painted on our back," Wynn said about Obama to Ralston. An excerpt of the interview is...

    “You’re headed for a one-term presidency,” Jobs told Obama in a meeting last year where he asserted that the White House needed to be more friendly toward business, according to the Huffington Post, which obtained a copy of the Walter Isaacson’s forthcoming book, “Steve Jobs.” Jobs also told Obama that “regulations and unnecessary costs” put the United States at a competitive disadvantage with China, where companies can build factories more cheaply. The recently deceased Jobs also told Obama that the education system was “crippled by union work rules,” according to Isaacson. Jobs proposed principals be able to hire and hire...

    On the conference call for Wynn Resorts, CEO Steve Wynn went on a big rant on Occupy Wall Street, Obama, and deficits. Here are our notes in raw form. It's all mostly paraphrased. In a nutshell, he says: Deficits are killing us, our dollars are worthless, and the Democrats are bankrupting the country and vilifying anyone who's successful. So naturally, people are protesting.

    LAS VEGAS - A hearing officer says the Wynn Las Vegas casino-resort violated federal labor law when it fired a union leader last year. The administrative law judge for the National Labor Relations Board said in a ruling filed this week that Wynn targeted dealer Ronda Larson because she was notably active in the Transportation Workers Union. Larson was a longtime casino employee when she was fired in September 2009 after she helped organize for the union. Wynn managers say Larson was terminated because she was rude and insubordinate.

    THE CASINO-RESORT MAGNATE Steve Wynn is so unhappy with President Barack Obama's stimulus plan that he vented about it on stage in Los Angeles, Tuesday, to a ballroom filled with corporate, financial, scientific and academic experts. The plan fails to create jobs fast enough and it failed to help one of America's biggest employers -- the hospitality industry, he said. "The only thing that should have mattered was job creation," said Wynn. "If you put an intelligent manager in charge of the government, he would know that job formation would be the first thing to fix, not a bunch of...

    CENTREVILLE, Md. (AP) — Even as Maryland primary voters cited "moderation" in their picks for president, two congressional districts turned out incumbents for the first time in more than 30 years, one Democrat and one Republican, both accused of being too moderate. The losses Tuesday of Republican Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest, an antiwar critic of President Bush, and Democratic Rep. Albert R. Wynn, whose 2003 vote authorizing the war chafed loyalists in his party, signaled anti-incumbent sentiment that surprised many state politicians. But maybe not voters. "Psychologically, people want to see change," said John Davis, 45, a Republican from Chestertown,...

    Steve Wynn's Bad Dream Vegas mogul sues Lloyd's over $54 million damaged Picasso claim JANUARY 11--Months after he accidentally poked a hole in a Picasso painting, casino magnate Steve Wynn today sued Lloyd's of London for failing to pay off a $54 million insurance claim. Wynn, who purchased the painting "Le Reve" for $48.4 million in 1997, contends that the painting was worth $139 million when, on September 30, he "accidentally placed a tear" in it while showing the work (pictured at right) to friends visiting his Las Vegas office.

He had been sentenced to four to five years in prison. Since her elevation from Wake County prosecutor to elected judge five years ago, Hill has been reprimanded twice for misbehaving and had one other conviction...

    Smokers in Austin can take a deep breath and relax. Six months after voting to ban smoking in the city's bars, nightclubs and restaurants, a revamped City Council appears poised to reaffirm smokers' rights to light up at a concert or after a nice meal. The council is scheduled to vote today on a new smoking ordinance that would effectively reverse the ban approved by former Mayor Gus Garcia's council in June. The new law would allow bars and restaurants to buy a $100 annual smoking license, require live music venues to offer two hours of smoke-free shows a week...

    Black lawmakers have joined with other prominent Democrats in an attempt to mend a serious and growing rift between Democratic National Committee (DNC) and frustrated minority groups who feel shut out of party decision-making. To solve the imbroglio, members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are demanding that the DNC award more contracts to minority political consultants. Responding to caucus members' complaining questions at a meeting last week, DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe revealed that the DNC had not signed a contract with any African American political consultants for the 2002 election, an attendee said. McAuliffe also divulged that the committee...
