    Despite the insufferable Chris Wallace this interview with Steve Wynn is interesting from the perspective of a guy who knows everything there is to know about the security behind operating massive hotels and casinos in Las Vegas. Additionally, as one might expect, it appears Mr. Wynn might be holding some insider information on the attack. The point about hotel guests using service elevators seemed more Freudian than accidental.

    Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn suggested Sunday that Stephen Paddock would have set off alarm bells at his properties had he tried launching his mass murder from one of them. Wynn, namesake of the glitzy Wynn Las Vegas on the strip, said his housekeeping staff is trained to do a visual inspection any time they enter a room, adding that a “Do Not Disturb” sign on a door for longer than 12 hours is investigated.

    Wynn began by talking about the most recent Democratic debate on Sunday night. “Bernie Sanders,” Wynn said. “God bless him, that moron.” When hosting an event like the October Democratic debate, Wynn said he did not want to stake out positions because the casino’s employees and their families have a range of political views. “But Bernie Sanders is an exception,” he said of the candidate. “You can’t let him get away with the crap (he says). The man is older than I am and nothing has rubbed off on him. He has not the first idea of how the country...
  • Karl Rove connects Carson to big donors

    Republican strategist Karl Rove arranged a meeting between fundraisers for GOP candidate Ben Carson and casino tycoon Steve Wynn, Bloomberg reports. Wynn is a sometimes-business competitor of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, whose campaign is viewing the meeting as an attempt by the GOP establishment to help Carson topple his chief rival in the primary race. "Karl Rove is at the center of the GOP establishment — fearful of what real leadership in Washington D.C. will accomplish," Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told Bloomberg in a statement. "Mr. Trump continues to expose the all-talk, no action politicians propped up their dark...

    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.

During a conference call on Monday, Wynn called Obama: "the greatest wet blanket to business, progress and job creation in my lifetime."

    Who doesn't love a good rant? We certainly do, I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I'm afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States. You watch television and see what's going on on this debt ceiling issue. And I'm saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime. Well, my customers and the companies that provide the vitality for the hospitality and restaurant industry, in the United States of America, they are frightened of...

    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.

    U.S. Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid told Carson City Democrats on Saturday that he needed their help replacing Republicans in Washington, D.C. “The Republicans in the United States Senate do not represent mainstream Republicans in this country. They are so far to the right ... we need your help to elect Democrats,” Reid said. Reid also spoke about the determination that went into health care reform. “The most important thing we've done for the country and the world is health care,” he said. About 75 people attended the Saturday convention.
