To my knowledge, there are no Kurds living in Everett.

Kurds as nearly everyone must know by now, were just deserted by the United States over in Syria where the liberal press would have you believe the world is coming to an end because we deserted them.

Fact of the matter is that every president since Franklin Roosevelt has deserted the Kurds or used them or deserted them after using them.

It is the Turks the world always supports.

It is the Turks, who slaughtered the Armenians, millions of them, who the world cowers in front of, always.

The belief is that her time has come, that her last race against the rep showed her citywide possibilities for scoring a good vote.

Finishing among the top five at-large candidates in the recent primary also helped her reputation as the person to watch.

If Adrien is to win, one of the chief contenders for re-election has to lose.

The big question, the eternal ultimate question never answered until all the votes have been counted on election day – who will not be returned to their at-large seat to make way for Adrien’s expected entry.

Steve Wynn to be Banned from Owning Casino License in Nevada

By Josh Resnek

The founder and former owner of the Wynn Company, whose vision and energy and money built the Encore Boston Harbor Hotel and Casino is being banned from owning a casino license in Nevada by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

Although Wynn Company was fined $35 million before they opened their doors here in June, Steve Wynn’s status was not determined in a legal way by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission except to note that he would not be allowed to be the licensee of the Encore facility and that his name could not appear on the facility identifying it.

The Nevada action now being taken comes as a result of a new spate of lawsuits against Wynn as well as a spate of older ones.
