All right, I got you. So back to this Vegas thing, you know, and I can't stop paying attention to this now. Thought I thought of you, Jay over the weekend. In what way? Can you side shot side shot? iPhone situation whereas iPhone got run over and we had to take it to the Apple store now. I think we talked about that previously. So we had an appointment. It's in the mall. We go to the mall, the mall's crazy as can be crazy busy. Okay. And I think the mall traffic is coming back with the kids because of Stranger Things because of what they've done to repopulate it. So the Apple store is downstairs, we come in on the top level, okay? Gotta take the escalator, right? I think I know it's mall, you're going to, yes. Yeah, yeah, right. That one. Top of the escalator circled around the entrance to the escalator. Oh, lord. Completely blocking access to the, let me just reframe this for you. Holiday shopping season has already started. Crazy busy. We're just trying to get to our appointment, circled around the top of the escalator where you have to get on it. Is a family, stopped and completely conversing.

I really think the little air horn thing carrying this air horn in my pocket, if you guys don't know what that was all about. And just tooting it at people from behind. It will startle them, but we have to film this, right? You have to. So I think having side shot with you may give you a little protection. Yeah. You know, could we like throw him under the bus and have him toot the horn? Yeah, if he's, I don't know if he'd be willing to do it. He's super courteous. But I know, but still, man, you know, yeah. Just a little bit funny. And I don't know that you have to be aggressive. I think you just say, excuse me, and you keep moving, right? Yeah, pretty much. I think that's what you have to do.

Gearing up for 2024
"It is that week. It's that week where we remind you every week that the game is Saturday. There might be Thanksgiving between now and the game, but it's really all about the game. I believe Byron York is an agnostic about Ohio State in Michigan as I am neutral about all the Republicans who were in Las Vegas. Am I right about that Byron you don't give a dog on about the whole state of Michigan or Ohio? That is absolutely let's say that for, but I don't care about the higher state in Michigan. I was raised with Alabama and auburn, which is a much more important contest in my humble opinion. Well, it's definitely not this year. I don't think you're going to find many people are going to rally to the Byron York point of view there. But what did Byron New York think about Las Vegas and the first of many candidate parades of 2023 24? Actually, here is something I would very much like to get to your opinion on, which is I'm sure you've watched several of Donald Trump's rallies over the past 6 months. And there are critics who say, well, they're not quite as spirited as they used to be, et cetera. But they're pretty as performances. Let's just talk as performance. They're actually pretty impressive. And when you put him next to anybody, other than Ron DeSantis, perhaps, but also Ron DeSantis, just as a performer on the stump. You put Trump next to Mike Pompeo or Ron DeSantis or Mike Pence or Nikki Haley if she changes her mind and decides to run against Donald Trump. Would you have a 2016 situation in which one of the performers is so much stronger than the others? That there's a bit of an imbalance there.
Republicans Discuss How to Move Away From Trump
"Welcome back, America two here at David and drucker. I didn't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan either because he is from California, but he was in Las Vegas last week for the first Republican candidate walk. It sort of like a fashion show and all the Republican candidates show up and this time it was the Republican Jewish coalition headed up by our old friend norm Coleman. David good, Thanksgiving week to you. What did you learn in Las Vegas? I tweeted out your article, but you tell us. It was very interesting weekend. I think what struck me the most is that there is a lot of consideration now and very open public consideration of whether or not they want, whether or not Republican activists and donors, but not just donors, but activists, people who knock on doors, all of that stuff. Want Donald Trump to continue to be the titular head of the party. He's obviously the FrontRunner for the 2024 nomination having announced he's a former president. He's got a very strong relationship with the Republican base. But after three consecutive electoral defeats, particularly this last one stinging because of how it unfolded and the opportunities that were there for Republicans, there was just a lot of talk about wanting fresh leadership continue the former president's policies by and large, but somebody fresh. I got that. Not just Rome Republicans who want to take his place, like Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley. I talked to a number of Republicans, not Haley, but a number of the names that I just listed. But also just talking to the activists that were there. And I think people need to keep in mind the Republican Jewish coalition initially skeptical of Trump in the 2016 campaign really warm to him quite immensely because his record in the Middle East and as it relates to Israel and Iran and everything else in that region of the world was stellar from their point of view and very accomplished from their point of view. So it's not like, well, they never really liked them anyway. If you became a fan favorite.

Oh, on election night. How is that? Who is that? Don't tell me it's because it wasn't that close in Florida. You mean if it's close, it takes longer to count the ballots? Oh, that's real reassuring.

AJ's Initial Thoughts on Election Night 2020
"I mean, who would have thought? We'd ever miss hanging chads. So this show is a combination of famous bits and politics is a bitch. I can't believe we have to go to bed. It's 1 o'clock in the morning here in Las Vegas. My throat is horse from screaming at the TV, screaming at Donna brazile, Chris Wallace, Jake tapper, a number of other assholes that I just can't John Roberts. I can't say. And some fucking boring woman, they put on the Fox News channel, along with Martha McCallum, who's the wolf in sheep's clothing and Brett Bayer who, listen, he has his one hour time slot on Fox that's the most boring fucking show, you ever want to see. You know, I know he's steady Eddie, but he has no panache, no pizazz, the team that Fox put together to bring us this election night special, the biggest election of our generation. What a fucking dud, so I'm a horse. And I'm a little worse for wear, but this is an embarrassment. Not to mention there was some very dubious behavior. If not criminal behavior, and we're going to find out in the ensuing days, you know, we heard for a while that Pennsylvania was going to be a pain in the ass. But did we expect it to be this fucking annoying? you guys lock up and go home? What kind of fucking union is this? Are you kidding me? The presidential election hangs in the balance and you're going home. Did we expect Arizona to apparently apparently I should say flip like we're being told it flip? Is this the ghost of John McCain sticking up Trump's asshole? Sure seems that way if the numbers hold up. Wisconsin we don't know yet. Michigan, we don't know yet. And the Secretary of State and Pennsylvania said they could be counting ballots till Friday.

Is Trump Plotting a 2024 Return to the White House?
"The former wonder if not talk about what we expected him to talk about last night. Do you think he's reassessing in 2024 plans right now? Well, I think that in any normal universe, the idea that you're going to announce on the heels of an election like this, where the candidates you pushed and the messaging that you helped influence fell flat. That's really something to do and the idea that Republicans other Republicans interested in The White House and you know them you and you know that they want it would just simply step aside or step gingerly after. I don't even know what to call it. That would make absolutely zero sense. I can't wait to hear seeing what I hear and learn at the Republican Jewish coalition conference in Las Vegas at the end of next week because a good dozen of them are going to be there. Trump will not. And there is a lot of reassessing that needs to happen.

You know to get other men to to really do that work. You know which is very. I've always said it. You know because. Even when i think about tommy you know my husband and you know i think. I don't know if he's consciously if he consciously does it. When i don't think he's as invested in richie's more as a lot of other men i know are But i also know that. It's very difficult for him if he was in a group of men to be the one. That's gonna call him out on their shit. It's very hard because that puts you puts a man in a sort of a a situation of isolation or excommunicated. You know what i mean like. Oh you're one of those you know and i think men struggled finding friends as it is awesome. Silly you know it's it's an nets That's up to making excuse for men or that's not to sort of like you know it's just a just recognize that there again there's these different sort of complexities that even men are dealing with. You know which is why. I think we as gender studies professors only talk about feminism and nobel bell hooks. Feminism was for everybody. Feminism will also freeman to and. I think a locus has alluded to that as well. The idea of like my heart. I love yeah. I love you know talking about You know that that's toxic. Masculinity harms everybody. You know it's not just it's not just women. We tend to be the victims of that toxic violent masculinity. But you know men's who you know mentor the victims on some level of their own.

"You know and it's just like tricky game we play But i think to say like you. And i have said it you know when people talk about divesting from places like amazon or walmart and it can be tricky because for some folks that is the only thing they have access to you know and the only thing that they can afford and so You know for as now being able to be able to be in a position financially to be much more conscious about where we spend our money and we can divest from amazon. Now you know as much as we can. Can you feel again. That's kinda creates reciprocal relationship. Our committee investment as In the community. I think that's a step in the direction of of dismantling these large systems because we can become less and less dependent on amazon and these big corporations and these fucking billionaires who work in the in a vicious cycle of exploitation you know So feels good if feels feels great.

And of course the bill starts racking up in started to leg but i also i was my mom. I'm also like not going to change them. I'm not going to you know. I think sometimes instead of like when people go to mexico wanna with like vendors you know on a fucking like five dollar tee shirt you know or something like that And take advantage of you know that kind of innate exploitative situation. And i'm like look. I see the amount of labor. They're putting into my house. I'm not going to try to bargain in our tried to haggle appraise. You know and again feeling. Like i'm in a position that i can do that right where i can pay them what they absolutely deserve. You know. i'm not trying to. I can't do this you know. He's underneath telling me you know like he. You know all these plumbing issues. And i'm like well you know like i wouldn't have never known that i wouldn't have been able to handle that males and Anyway so just it again is just another layer of that feeling. Good that we can.

"The your your fears around helicopter parenting aside from you know we can have that whole discussion separately but i think to validate where that actually comes from like is okay. Hey what you do with that is again. Maybe a whole other conversation of how you process that. And how you know where you go from there. But i think knowing that why that fear is there is real like you have your own life. Experiences have led you to not be trusting of everybody you know. Trauma is racial knowing chile. these cycles and not everybody is invested in that. And so it's you know it makes it a much more complicated thing to bench as we like. I'm just gonna leave my kids like no. You're you're kind of taking all of these other things into consideration because of not only your life experiences but also your values and your principles. So i think that the why of it is real and is valid. You know and then it's you know where we go from here but you know. Do i want to talk about what rest is anyway. Just a few minutes. Because i you know the cards oracle danka was pulling from them are looking at some of the images in iowa kate. Happiness is there which is like this child is with her arms spread out. You know that that typo happiness that is. There's rest in there too. there is set x hail. I mean this comes back to our inhale exile like our children in their schooling. You know like eggs. Hail you know In also who got or like to play you know Around like which is a circle of children holding hands in circling in playing together Like rest you know maybe like meditation. It doesn't have to be sleeping right. It doesn't have to be sitting in doing nothing like it can be that and maybe a job. I'm for that but it can. I think it can be like chilling on the couch. You know watching reality. Think i gonna say. I think it's also about resting our minds and sometimes for better or worse you know there's times like i think podcast is a really good interesting thing because there's times are in the mood to listen to like intense had cast. I'm ready to like take notes and like learn of and then there's times i'm like i don't think when i'm listening to this. Podcast wanna think when i'm watching. Tv i just wanna like be brain dead and and kind of get to you know and so there's definitely that being able to rest the mind right and so it's not a can be sitting into anything and it can be just watching something that is just like chill and fun and of course in like i'm always watching reality. Tv with a half critical. I like that doesn't go away completely but not in the moment right like in the moment. I'm just watching watching then later on. I can do my critical analysis of it. You know but it's like for me. That's a huge thing. So that's exactly what my lunch hour looks like. Is eating a big meal. 'cause lunches my thing washing realities or anything really. That just takes my mind away from. Yeah when you say raised on your mind. I think it is because i was thinking resident mine in stepping into imagination or something like that is hell or to like the creative parts. You know reading. A book is very implicate.

"las" Discussed on Mobbed Up: The Fight for Las Vegas
"Of the mob in las vegas. The did this in a couple of ways. First of all. They became conduit for state and federal sources. Right who wanted to get messages out into the media so local press revealed the develop sources are telling them what was going on behind the scenes that these casinos so the reporting this to the public so turn puts pressure on regulators to act and investigators to put together cases against the mob guys and it got some point where there were half a dozen different major stories all going on at once in las vegas and so reporters could barely keep up. Schumacher says all that reporting help. Create an environment that encouraged state authorities to keep pushing forward. I think it also attracted federal interest and now you have the federal strike force here. That is trying to do everything from go after the bob to looking at public corruption right so suddenly we've got state senators like floyd land and we have judges like harry clayborn. Who were under scrutiny for taking bribes or collaborating in some way with criminals and these stories all built out of this sort of changing mindset in las vegas that made we can do just fine without the mob anymore. Governor robert list not only led the state's regulatory charge against organized crime but he also pushed the legislature for more resources that included requests for gaming control agents and better training and higher wages for they gave many dozens of agents and huge amount of capacity to do a we had to do. We beefed up came control board substantially when all this came out and we commenced the process and legislature slung in behind us and gave us a lot of capacity to.

I want to be just imprinted in his little heart like their little hearts like i'm always here for you. There's nothing that you can say. Please come back and talk to me. You know and I hope that we're doing a good good work there too. You know yeah. I think it's it's that it's knowing you know they will be one. Hundred percent accepted no matter what you know. And that that home is is their their place of refuge. What the world is going to throw out them. Yeah home will always again. That's just the business with the emotional space. Yes emotional space of home is like you can come home. And you know whoever you want to be and i think that brings us back to the beginning needs versus wants renamed because literally in order to make that happen having I don't think you have to buy home to do that. You don't have to own things in. Let's that's bs message. But that's the world that we live in. You know being able to have whatever that sovereignty over a space you know is a need so that we can create these safe spaces for our kids. You know like and i think that's very much a part of reproductive justices well right reproductive. This is saying that you know to have a ton of knee over our bodies in atomic autonomy over billing safety in our communities ray and I think there's there's a particular phrase that Sister song talk like how they define reproductive justice and Having safe communities is a part of that you know and having safe A safe yeah safe place to call home And i mean not that we have to compare but why people have had saved places to do. They're crazy. I shit for early on time right so be there racist sells you know. They've been able to go and find homes for that you know. Can you imagine how much more creative worker be thinking like. Oh this is going to be great. I am happy for us.

"I i. I was like oh. That's what i needed to hear. Because again i wasn't looking approaching sense of this like a winning to punish him because he's acting out at schools like he actually needs more of the. He's a very sensitive kid. And so you know. I had to like really be much more intentional. About is he resting. Is he eating. You know if we've been having a lot of stuff we know we've been moving. There's all the stuff so is he. Does he have a space to express his emotions in a healthy way. And so then we're looking into like a lot of sensory things that maybe he could play with. That could help him release those emotions. You know in a way that's not towards other people are friends of things and And so it's an and so then when the to you know there's some of his stuff incurs this stuff and when they're together they trigger each other yeah. Something coping mechanism is to so like either when he heating or when he's playing it's an emotional regulation thing but it dries crews mad because yeah ruse because of his dyslexia needs like silence to concentrate the auditory distraction and literally distracts his brain. And i'm glad you're naming these things i look of it. Actually i earlier on. No one can see me in this. You know in the podcast. But i i've been like kinda moving back and forth like swain. And i do you know i know. I know it's helpful. But i think i imagine that actually is not hopeful for some people. I sit down. Settle down like i am. I'm just kind of it was so like we recently had an incident where that was happening. Where is getting pressured at something. Let's gets frustrated so hums more and it's like this like back and forth and so previously we would get mad at crew. I understood that. It was a coping mechanism for something and i would get frustrated with cruise. I'm not gonna have him stop. Because that's not fair. That's how she's regulating himself. Oh this is a this literally is like cruz. it's his own emotional regulation that he's like i can't he literally can't stand the auditory distraction like instead of getting mad at him saying. Oh i hear that you don't that you're getting frustrated because you are trying to concentrate. Yeah i you know what i mean. So it's like some. Like what the fuck. So i was like okay. We either needs to put you in separate rooms when this is happening or i was like christie. Want noise cancelling headphones. Like what can we do rather than get upset you off for just being who you are and saying. How can we remedy in a way that works for everybody you know but it was had i not this other information or have been invested in it. I would adjust blamed them for acting out right quota quacked. Now i think you an amazing mom. And i want to say i wanna say that speaks to. It's similar feeling you know where we were seeing like know. We've just so much work to like. Callback are younger. Sales christina rene come on come out now you can call them and be with us because of the wounds of academia education and i think there's parts of us to that we had to like really abandon With parents who did the best they could and yet didn't have those Have the abilities that you know the privileges that we have. You know for you to be able to say that. I mean it's it's radical on a lot of levels and And it's so so loving. So loving. And i and i think that for me at the end of the day it was. I want them to know that at home. We're going to see them for who they are and and it brought me back to lake there was you know 'cause crews or crews sons us. This teacher was kind of like having obviously feeling frustrated. And i think her. And i were having miscommunication about i was like if she just like writing him off like what is happening like. I wanna make sure that he is still being seen as a whole human being. Not just for these moments where he's being and so i. I was like again in a moment of this nation. Like calling everybody and finally she sent me this text and said i see how it feels like. I'm only emphasizing when. He's this behavior. But i want you to know that. He's he adds a lot to the class. He's a lot of gifts and good. I needed to hear that. I needed to hear that from his. Yeah that he was emotionally safe at school because there are cultural or racial differences. You know at play here too. And there's so that's important. Yeah yeah i am. Yeah exactly we have to recognize that there's limitations in you know historically you know mexican lat next kids portola ways you know are going to written off in a certain way and you know and even though sounds is the most light passing anyway so it was still but and so once. I knew that his teacher saw him. I would still wonder like if his name was kevin or something like that. How would that. How that impacts the scenario of how he's being read to. I mean there's all these different things. I think i am they. Yeah yeah things. But ultimately i was like okay. She sees him then. We can work than i'm more able to work together to figure out like what what his needs are Like knowing when we talk about this idea of home it's beyond just the physical space knowing that there's a sense of safety for them out in the world you know And that were.

"At the community college and my brother teaches at the community. College show we're talking yesterday and how we got all we got this extra money and we're like what is this and we looked at it and said you know cove in nineteen disbursement and yes essentially. It's hazard and again. I had a had me going into like. Oh you know. I know a capitalist. Oh you got free money. And i'm like no. I didn't get free money. You know. yeah. I like a thousand dollars an extra help for me. I got two thousand dollars on a paycheck. Like an extra thousand dollars is an actually so my brother. And i figured it out because he only got five hundred because he only worked at the community college in the fall. He didn't work at the community. College free five hundred per semester. Oh interesting an extra five hundred dollars. A semester is nothing no no. Yeah we put into and the the empathy that we've given our students over the last few semesters starting in twenty twenty and that the extra labor and emotional neighbor air requires to win students. Email us with. Oh i'm sick. Or i'm take. I'm in charge of taking care of younger siblings. All this stuff or my parents died or my. You know like i got almost kicked out. You know like my landlord They me out while that happened. Like yeah no not for us to say we understand will nam mention or let's work out an a different situation. Yeah that's what we're getting paid that extra money. That's what the fuck it has then for is having to do the extra emotional labor and we of course it would do it no matter what because that's who we are but we should be getting you know if we're going to value work in a capitalist system and all work including emotional and domestic labor should get its proper value. Yeah two things the other one. I think i already mentioned another episode but oh one of my students call me the day. After she gave birth and said i have an extension cycle cleese. Yes yes yes yes. Do not worry go back and enjoy. You know i couldn't anyways. That's the road we live in the world. We live in that before. Like we're i've gotten calls from hospital as or emas hospital beds. I literally the beginning of the semester. Have to say. Do not call me from your hospital bed. Yeah that's good. Do not call me after you give birth you. I mean. I can congratulate only to congratulate you or whatever i do not. You're good you're good. We're gonna work it out. You know you don't you don't but i think that that's i imagine that they have other professors who are much more harsh exactly types of things and so it's like a trauma response when they do that and i really do it to like. Nah don even. Yeah yeah and i feel like my anxiety you know. I need to know and it was like well good. I'm here to let you know you're good. You're good but i will say the other thing. They are words made me think of was charity versus justice so in a capitalistic society. They're like hey you doing having a hard time you kovin will give you some charity. You know some money and then and then sometimes you pay that back. And sometimes you don't but it's a gift unin. Yeah it's like fucking batman given you know his money to like you know. Yeah yeah no heat that they caused you know he 'cause so that's not that's not charity this justice. This is like you know what is just an actually. It's not even that. Just it's just it's pennies but it's it's it's so simple right. Yeah i yeah and unlike all of that leads us back to our oh right at howard defining home in. I think that so i mean. I think it's important to name you know for me buying this home. Has you know even in the thick of creating that home right now. Still and there's a lot of instability at the moment. There's still you know the sense. Of like i will have this place of rest you know and And and it gives me the freedom to to imagine like. Oh now now that i have this home now that i stable clays you know a it gives me some sense of freedom of what i can do. I will say that it's interesting so At the cow states were going back all. We're not going back. One hundred percent in the fall but I am teaching a hybrid corus. That will in person. And i was like oh my god that means it has to go back to my commute right and i and i thought about a year and a half that i didn't have to commute. And how freeing that fells to not have that type of exhaustion you know and I mean break it down. How long is your commute to. La casino like well. It depends so if i have to be there early. It's an hour because there's early traffic sometimes. Okay basically an hour there and an hour back. Yeah we'll talking yet two hours a day. Sometimes it's it's an afternoon. It could even be up to like an hour and a half depending to get back and so it was just so it was very very stressful. And i'm like not looking forward to that at all and you know and so i think there was the freedom of working from home but also like i was you know we. We lived in a two bedroom. Where i didn't have like. I had a very tiny designated space. And so that was part of the motivation of of getting a bigger house at some point deciding renting or buying and we ended up leaning towards spying. And so you know i. I'm going to have this office. And so we have it three bedroom home. And everybody's like oh. The boys are gonna have room. And i was like no office and then i start to like second. Guess myself like homeys shift gives that room to cruise. Maybe my kitchen knows like way. I worked my whole fucking lie here and yeah i am going to continue to be working from home. Our businesses has you know working from home. So i need. I need a room. And i'm not and that's what i really trying to release the guilt about that. Like as a mother. I should be soccer official and you know giving to my children first of all. They have a room a shared room bigger than they had. Before you know there were going to build a treehouse of. They'll have this other. You know and i'm like i'm not gonna feel guilty for i know for creating my own space in my own home and i think that that's that's something that i've been really grappling with in in that like as a mother as a woman somehow my home. Is this like home for my children versus for other people but not for yourself but not for me and i'm like nah no no no. This is is not to say you know. I made sure that we had a garage..

That's classy to rally. But the relationship took a sharp turn. After newton got the upper hand in their bitter battle to by the mob controlled. Aladdin hotel carson started skewering newton in monologues. He was very very angry with me and started dealing chokes on his show and having other comedians. Join in with those jokes about my lack of manhood. I guess is the best way to set. This went on for about two to three years. And i contacted his agent. I contacted his friends. I tried to contact him. Of course he refused my call but it just continued and there was no rhyme or reason for it no truth in fact at all it was just his being so been outta shape. I had ended up with a hotel so one day. As newton tells the story he simply walked in the carson's office unannounced and told him he'd kick his butt if the nasty monologue jokes didn't stop but moving the aladdin beyond mob associations would take a lot more than a newton versus carson competition in fact in old friend who helped newton in an hour of mean tight organized crime to the aladdin once more and turn newton's reputation upside down the whole thing turned into a nightmare boy the fact that i was on television accused of fronting for the mob.

Newton telephone bush several times in the months leading up to that infamous conference he wanted carson to stop ridiculing him on national television. Pushkin tried but carson wouldn't let up that left newton with only one choice. I was recording. Virginia i was recording a religious. Ogle move all things at capitol records and in the studio and the drummer says to me. Did you watch television last night. I know i was working last night. And he said good. I said why and he should well. Garson really went off on your last night. He should thinks like geez. We saw newton and liberace allen bathtub and nobody knows what they were doing.

"Las vegas until his own gangland slaying in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. He had the coldest is i've ever seen. In my stores i got used to collins bellagio by st nand. Tony the ant. He hated that and it sometimes left me at the receiving end of laterals nasty stirs and his menacing fits of anger. This would be the time to remember. Frank collado the tough cold blooded hitman for spalato and the focus of season one of mobbed up kaleida died in august at age. Eighty one a couple of months after the first season of the podcast wrapped up back in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. I remember seeing him as cool as it could be laughing. It up with spalato lieutenants in a favourite mob hangout. The very night before the fed's announced he had decided to cooperate. Against a latro years later. I interviewed kaleida after he left witness protection he was as candid direct in season. One as he was when i interviewed him his story never changed. When you're ordered to kill somebody you better do it. If you thought they're going to kill you they wouldn't come anti kill salt so if they thought you would say no. You know what i mean. I didn't like this jerry listener guy. He had that weasel effect. You know like. I don't i just don't like him like i didn't like saul. I emptied that revolver in his ad then he stole his alive. So had we had a reloaded. Fortunately we brought he brought extra. Bullets together was women and I am committed it all this ad. Then he finally died remember. James tamer aladdin's entertainment director. He turned out to be a lot more than that at the casino. He was a convicted bank. Robber who federal authorities alleged was overseeing. The detroit mobs hidden interests. Tamer had business ties to aladdin owners. As early as nineteen seventy he also had been the subject of illegal gambling related investigations in other states. Tamer would not have been able to get a gaming licence in nevada because of his criminal record in alleged associations but as entertainment director. He didn't need one but hicks attack. Nevada deputy attorney general in the late nineteen seventies remembers tamer. Rosenthal set the example for some of these other guys in vegas at work you know didn't really want to be licensed. And so lo and behold james tamer shows out as the director of the latin showroom director of entertainment for the alleged showroom. But you know there was a lot of evidence that he had. He had a sorority to comp casino. Customers he you know had a lot of authority there and in clearly involved in administration and operations of because know the teamsters funded hotel expansion at the aladdin by no small surprise was plagued by construction overruns. That put the resort on the brink of bankruptcy. They're also an alleged kickback scheme covered by the feds that the fraud of the pension fund. More to come on that eventually. The labor department filed suit to stop the pension fund from loaning money to casinos and the fbi kept pushing forward with the help of court approved. Wiretaps agents listen to.

"Com. You can see all the amazing contributions of people who submitted their work and are seventeen. Ghana's ambatis headed. We wanna shout out. Some cheese may from rene on medical scenario of course. I'm a dedication. And of course all the beautiful writing that goes into launching a magazine right saying this is our intention. This is who we are. Oh book reviews by views that are contributing editor. And i i have to say you know 'cause we're you know the theme of this episode of celebration and gosh. This magazine has been such a like a dream. Come true you know i. Maybe we throw that around. But i feel like this is really one of those things that was like getting. The phd was gray. I don't know if it was necessarily a childhood dream. The childhood dream this dream. This childhood dream come true. You know my young self and even into teens just having these aspirations of being an editor and a writer and it feels like you know. I had totally decided that that was just not going to happen. You know being a journalist was just not in the cards for me. And i was actually like totally okay with it ahead. I was like this just kind of accepted. And you know so when this is as this is unfolding in happening. I do have to kind of sit back and like when you know when we have those childhood dreams. I don't know there's a magic about that. And i just i i i have. I can't say enough. And i'm also speech us. About how exciting my how exciting. This is my inner tiled like eight suggests i am like. Oh it's just it's overwhelming. And i love it. I love every part of. It's all i can compare it to. I wanted to be an astronaut. And once i found out my eyesight or something and taking flying lessons and stuff like that. I've done as much as i can. an olive that beautiful But and at the same. I just know i know how when you let go those dreams and then it's and then i can see this gifted to you. It's like it's like how about a magazine renewed. Basically would you like to do that. I think you know part of that too is interesting because it's also like i think my childhood dream was also limited in that i was still reliant on these old systems of like i have to be hired at some newspaper or some magazine that you know some established public publication and here. We are in a place where you know we're trying to dismantle all these systems and part of that is like no we're going to create these opportunities for ourselves and for our community. Let's we don't need to continue to be reliant on these systems you know and so it's kind of like doing. It's doing both of those things. It's it's fulfilling my childhood dream while also doing de colonial work of my of my adult. You know aspirations and I know. I think that's i think that's what feels so good to is. It's it's on my own terms. It feels good. You know It feels like i'm doing liberation work. While also fulfilling my inner child dream. I mean i really just see us in new in this moment like as this loving adult you know to go into inner von diener experiencing and just saying like i hear you. We're gonna do it. We don't need to ask permission or there's no we don't we. Don't get the wait for the money for this. You know like i just or we gotta wait till your next birthday. I don't know like all the things i heard. That's not for you or you know things like that here. let's do it. You know or i have. I'm here for you. We've got the power now to do that. Yeah we don't have to earn it or we don't have to deserve it right like we deserve it by merely existing right. We don't have to somehow like you know because people will say you have to pay your dues right. You have to pay your dues. And i think it's like we can just created our own. Are you know instead of having to like 'gate-keeping it's hazing. It's you know. And that's kind of what academia has is as well you know it's just like you have to jump through all these hoops in order to get to this level of success and i think we're kind of seeing one we're defining success in a different way and you know we're going to create our own opportunities rather than having to jump through your hoops ray or dummy jumping through hoops and what's been amazing too is how much it's again like the writing course But how much is has resonated with people in our and how many people have just said. I wanna be a part of this. I think you should do this. Column so in the summer will have an additional column. I don't know if i should give it away. I mean why not. Yeah we had. I mean immediately. We had people wanting to be basically come on staff and we were like right yes. We'll have a finance column making moves. Maybe and like you so basically saying. Hey you should do this. This could be a part of it. And can i do it. You know and we're like oh yes. Yes and yes you know. I just feel like it's this exponential. I can feel the vibration while never actually actually resonate but i it. There's this vibration going on. And i love it you know. I think that's hustle. Lisa came on. She was kind of giving us all these ideas. And i'm like why don't you just come on and do that. I can do this and then we had somebody. Oh if you wanna finance column. Yeah come on and do that. You know we have. We've had A few others that are gonna come on and writes. Columns are already having to take over those columns with all about like one less thing i gotta do.

I'm a good delegate. let's bring and we're orchestrating. We're like the you know the coach. Where the coach so.
