Allegiant Las Vegas Raiders Stadium: Fresh New Blacktop!
LAS VEGAS. NV: ☠️ Hey Raider Fans! Apologies for the delay in getting out the November updates. For those who aren't in Las Vegas, everyday in Las Vegas is a major international news scandal. However, many stories, such as the Raiders Allegiant roof raising delay, go uncovered by the local media. That's because the local media in Las Vegas is owned by the major casinos. For example, the Las Vegas Sands (The Venetian) bought the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2015. With all the projects going up in Vegas at one time, many are worried that investors might get easily spooked by any bad news coming out of Vegas. That's why the Jedi are constantly hitting the streets to bring you the stories you won't find anywhere else. Last week, the roof raising delay was finally confirmed by Don Webb. It won't be finished by October (obviously) but it will be finished by Thanksgiving. The reason the roof raising was delayed is because the electrical wiring was stolen from the roof raising control center. Apparently, it's expensive equipment. The roof raising company is from France. Replacement time was 90-100 days, but Mortenson McCarthy paid extra to have it expedited. They also paid Las Vegas Metro Police for a month to secure the construction site. Welcome to Vegas, French guys. You just got jacked. All overages will be paid for by the season ticket holders; not Mark Davis or the taxpayers.
This is their first time raising a roof in the United States so we had a lot of international work to do to find out what happened before releasing the video. Also last week, KAOS closed; the biggest nightclub in Vegas. This was a huge shocker because investors poured $1 billion into the Palms Casino and Resort. Alex Cordova from Wynn Nightlife was said to have been skimming 6-7 figures off the top of Marshmello’s and Skrillex’s $60 million contract.
Also last week, The City of Las Vegas made it illegal to be homeless. So, on Veterans Day 2019, the Las Vegas Metro Police started arresting the homeless. Can you imagine being charged with having nowhere to go? You’ll be like, okay, “What’s for dinner?”. The problem is that a large portion of the homeless are actually U.S. military vets who suffer from PTSD, anxiety, depression - or other mental illness disorders. According to the National Association on Mental Illness, over 90% of homeless people suffer from some sort of mental illness disorder. I am a U.S. Air Force Combat Vet who flew Special Operation missions in Ecuador. I know that PTSD its real. A normal soldier can easily become homeless if they get isolated, anxious or suicidal. I was homeless for several months more after I left the military. I was also suicidal. Also, many homeless are seriously schizophrenic. JediRich's sister is schizophrenic and roams the streets of Vegas all day/night. She does not like to be confined - that's why she's homeless. The point is, on this Veterans' Day, let's make it a Veterans' Day Week: Support Our Troops, Feed the Homeless, And GO RAIDERS! ☠️
Oh the FRESH NEW! blacktop and FRESH NEW sidewalk in the North Entrance make the stadium “look-a-like-a-stadium”. You have to check it out. And 75% of the glass is complete and the 65,000 seat stadium is 65% completed. This is Vegas. Thanks for watching. ☠️
