The Jedi will be in Manhattan beginning April 1st, 2021. Follow & subscribe to all the Jedi accounts on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook & Twitter.
AirBNB reached out to the Jedi today. They are continuing to investigate but at this time there are refunding $887.68 to our account.
Vegas was packed the second weekend of March Madness 2021. But this is a different Vegas crowd from yesteryear. They don’t gamble, party or blow money. They prefer cookies, cakes and candy.
This is not the same Vegas crowd as yesteryear, who partied, played and parlayed or the 80s Gen who loved coke, champagne & caviar or the 70s Gen who did broads, beer and blow. No, this year the people prefer mopeds, M&Ms & malls.
They do not like broads, booze or blow. They prefer mopeds, M&M’s and malls.
The Jedi are flying to NYC FIRST CLASS on Wednesday March 31, 2021.

Jay Jarvis Heard hired a man who broke into our home at midnight and forced us to leave by gun point
Have you ever had to pack up your entire life’s belongings in 30 minutes in the middle of the night after being awoken by gun point? That’s exactly what happened to us on Jedi Rich’s birthday.
Jay Heard is a manager at Walmart in Las Vegas. On the side, he has several businesses. One of the businesses is managing an AirBNB for a host named Peter at the Flamingo Palms in Las Vegas.
On March 25th, 2021 at 23:31, Mr. Heard hired a military trained hitman to break into our apartment and force us to leave our home. This was an wrongful eviction in the State of Nevada. Breaking and entering a home with a gun is a crime in the State of Nevada. But hiring a hitman to break in and force someone to move by gun is a crime handled by the F.B.I.
The man said his name was Tony. We will presume he was Jay’s friend or relative. He was visibly intoxicated. He woke me up with a gun. He told us his birthday was the night before when it was actually 2 nights before. He was so intoxicated he could not remember his own birthday.
Let me repeat that: at 11:30 pm, Thursday, March 25th, an intoxicated man named TONY (a relative or associate of Jay Heard) broke into our apartment with a gun and forced us to leave. The man was hired by Jay Heard. The man had a police badge. The man identified himself as “Tony from AirBNB Security”. We threatened to call Metro. That’s when he got aggressive. He said “Go ahead an call the cops”.
We got scared. We decided to comply. This is was not the time to have a standoff. We were being threatened by an intoxicated man with a gun!
He watched us packed up all of our belongings. He forced us to leave. When he was alone with me, the man began to flirt with me. I had to explain to him— “back off buddy, that’s my husband.”
Mr Heard saw that he had an opportunity to evict the Jedi presumably, so that he could rent the unit twice during March Madness or so that he could move back into the unit himself.
Regardless of the reason, this is all AirBNB’s fault. AirBNB does not do background checks on their hosts. AirBNB moved us into the home of a violent maniac who hired a hitman to have us removed by force.
Mr Heard was living Peter’s unit when guests were not renting out the unit.
When I apologized for shouting at Tony, Tony said, “No worry’s. That’s why I always carry a gun when I do evictions”. Can you imagine the damages if one of us had been shot by Tony?
What kind of person takes money for rent and then evicts them onto the streets at midnight with nowhere to go on their 53rd birthday? Damages are still being assessed.
The Jedi gave Tony several opportunities to reject Mr. Heard’s orders. But Tony was a 16-year US Air Force military veteran. He had orders and he was going to do what Mr Heard told him to do regardless of what he was feeling, seeing or hearing. Tony was loyal to his own despair. Tony would have been a Nazi or slave master. Tony is moron. Don’t be a Tony.
The real question remains: Why didn’t Tony re-enlist for another 4 years and get 20 year retirement benefits? I will bet you dimes to donuts it was drug & alcohol related.He was still wasted from his birthday March 23rd and it was already March 25th.
The Jedi pleaded with Tony to reconsider his actions. He had every opportunity to do the right thing. Tony chose to follow the orders of a moron. Well, my dad always said “you can fix a hose, you can fix a horse, but you can’t fix a moron.”
Is AirBNB’s long term stay legal?
The Jedi have been living in AirBNBs long term stay program since October 2020. Last night, without notice, an armed security guard entered our apartment and forcibly removed us from our home that was paid through April 13th, 2021.
NOTE: Since we got kicked off the AirBNB system, we have decided to sublease an apartment in the Upper East Side Manhattan commencing on April 15th 2021 and extending through August 31st 2021.
We used AirBNB’s 4 week+ stay program to travel to Panama. It’s a great deal. No credit checks, no background checks and no security deposit required to book an apartment for 3 months. Sound crazy? We thought so too, but let’s give it a try.
We are photojournalists who have travelled the world by living in weekly stays and temporary housing for nearly 10 years. When we were unable to pay rent after the global pandemic hit, we packed up our bags and looked into other options.
We rented a condo from Air BNB in Panama from October 18th 2020 until January 18th 2021. Amazingly simple. The condo was wonderful. Unfortunately, the other condo owners did not feel the same way about AirBNB guests. The other owners did not like having strangers moving in & out of their building, bypassing their strict condo association bylaws. Nevertheless, the condo owner extended our stay twice through February & March. But when the owner received a larger than normal electric bill in January, he complained to AirBNB. We are not sure what happened next, but we received a call out-of-the-blue from AirBNB demanding that we check out immediately, even though we had PREPAID through March 2021. They would not tell us why we were being evicted. We presumed it had something to do with the electric bill.
Panama was under very tight COVID restrictions. Men & women were not allowed outside on the same day. If caught, we would get arrested. So later that day, we bought last minute tickets back to Las Vegas which were very expensive.
We did not understand why we were being kicked out. There was no hearing. So we started another AirBNB account using my wife’s name. We rented a unit from January 7th until April 13th 2021.
Two days ago, we received the same cookie-cutter emails saying we violated AirBNBs terms & conditions and that we must check out immediately. When we asked why, they refused to provide an answer. Presumably they figured out we were together.
Somehow, AirBNB has been able to circumvent state & local tenancy laws in Nevada. Las Vegas hotels have very strict rules. If a guest stays longer than 28 days, they hurst becomes a legal tenant with tenant rights. Therefore, no hotel in Las Vegas allows guests to stay longer than 28 days except not so for AirBNB. Why is AirBNB an exception?
In the State of Nevada, if a person stays in a hotel longer than 28 days, then that person is considered a legal tenant and has tenant rights. Therefore, AirBNB cannot make someone leave their home without going though a legal eviction process. But they did it to us anyway.
Last night, an armed security guard entered our apartment at 11:30pm demanding that we vacate the premises immediately. We were stunned. We threatened to call the Las Vegas Metro. At the end, we decided that this was not the tome to fight our battle. We complied with the security guard and moved out of our apartment at midnight on my birthday.
Today is Jedi Joy's birthday. Here are some birthdays from the past
The Jedi were approved by Rudin Management to move to the Upper East Side Manhattan on April 15th 2021.
YouTube suspended the Jedi for spreading false mask information because we filmed an anti-mask protest in front of Bally’s Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. We do not condone violating mask requirements.
However, YouTube promotes bulimics who get 3M views showing how much food a tiny girl can eat without getting fat. What the creator does not tell you is she is vomiting after eating. Bulimia has been proven to cause breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colon cancer, small intestine cancer and often leads to suicide.
MYTH: A vegan diet is healthy.
FACT: A vegan diet is a high sugar diet.
Vegans want you to believe that eating a high sugar diet will make you lose weight. This is biologically impossible. The body requires animal protein to be lean. Vegetation was an alternative source of fuel when animal meat was scarce. When the brain senses more vegetation than animal protein, the brain changes the body’s metabolism.
When animal meat is scarce, there is risk of starvation. The brain tells the body to store excess food as fat. When protein levels are high, the brain tells the body to convert fat to energy. When you eat carbohydrates (fruits & vegetables) the body only has energy when you eat more carbohydrates. Unfortunately, the excess sugar (carbohydrates) begin to add up to fat, lethargy and depression.
If being fit is not incentive enough to quit eating sugar, then the World Health Organization, American Medical Association and the American Heart Association has said eating more than 25 g of excess sugar per day will cause cancer, heart disease, liver disease, obesity and tooth decay (to name a few).
Jedi Joy and Jedi Rich Lightowler are traveling to New York City on a pair of First class Tickets they purchased last year. This will be another adventure for the Jedi. Jedi Eich was first summoned to NYC (by the powers that be) in September of 2001. The trauma of living in NYC Post 9/11 was unlike anyone could ever imagine. 3000 souls died that day, only blocks from where Jedi Rich was living. After 9/11, Jedi Rich quit his job at FiServ selling payment processing, parted ways with his childhood friends and lived alone for the next 10 years until his father passed away in 2011.
Jedi Rich took ‘the road less traveled”. He bounced around Portland Oregon working odd jobs at dingy beer joints until he landed a job at Henry’s Tavern as a lead bartender. This is where Jedi Rich learned how to make drinks. Fancy drinks. Specialty drinks. And Jedi Rich learned how to serve drinks fast. He was working with 19 of the best bartenders in Portland Oregon. Henry’s was the bar to work at in 2004.
Later that year, Jedi Rich took his skills to the big time. He fired up his 2004 Ford Focus and headed back to NYC, stopping in Aspen Colorado for a few weeks. Aspen is the home of the Aspen Food & Wine Festival. Jedi Rich knew that if he wanted to be the best he had to work for the best. Jedi Rich had to be where the best chefs cooked. Jedi Rich decided to apply at The Aspen Skiing Company. That’s where Jedi Rich landed fa job at the Little Nell. If you’ve never heard of the Little Nell it’s because the rooms start at about $5,000 a night during peak season. I served Ivanka Trump and her mother (they go every year), Alan Greenspan, OJ Simpson and Carrot Top to name a few. Notable guests. I learned 5 star hospitality service from the best by working there. The Little Nell is one of only 7 restaurants in North America to achieve that status.
Las Vegas is at 50% capacity but the energy is at 100%.
Anti-mask proponents took to the streets of the Las Vegas strip today. They claim 368 days of mask wearing is long enough. Jedi Joy says it’s been 369 days (she’s OCD with a photographic memory).
The Jedi were gathering footage showing how busy Las Vegas was this weekend. Even at 50% capacity, Las Vegas feels busier than ever. There is an energy in Las Vegas that draws people here. I remember visiting Las Vegas in 1999 for the first time not on business. It was magical. I never wanted to leave. I loved the way the smell of the airport, the feel of the sheets in the rooms, and the autonomy to do whatever you wanted. It felt like freedom and I never wanted to leave. Eventually, I moved here. This weekend was no exception. The energy was at 100%. In May, capacity will go to 100%. Today, anti-mask protestors were taking their agenda to the strip. We got caught up in their call to action. Very interesting day. Thanks for watching and please subscribe!

Room rates at the Cosmopolitan have shot up to $625 from $325 last weekend. Red Rock Resorts are $399 from $188. People are ready to get back to normal things in life again. And Las Vegas is the best place for March Madness.
The tournament starts Thursday, just as Las Vegas is starting to see significant signs of recovery. Restaurants and casinos can now operate at 50 percent capacity. Vaccines are becoming widespread, with about 14 percent of adults in Nevada fully inoculated as of Monday. And COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths have slowed over the past few weeks.
