The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Vegas and Macau make big bet on high rollers as economy pushes away the small gambler

The economic downturn has been disastrous to a number of industries, but perhaps no greater to the playground of America, Las Vegas.  As of May 28, the former world stage for fun and gaming has been relegated to third place on the list of global gambling spots behind Macau and Singapore, and is making a huge bet on attracting high rollers, while limiting its options for the pocket change gaming public.

In Sin City, where over-the-top is always the sales pitch, lavish nightclubs featuring a heart-pounding party have become the backbone of a billion-dollar industry that is soaring while gambling revenue slips.

The rise of the Vegas super-club coincides with the decline of the town's gambling supremacy. The tiny Chinese enclave of Macau surpassed the desert oasis as the world's top gambling destination in 2006. Singapore is on track to claim the No. 2 spot. - Huffington Post

Additionally, the global leader in gambling stops is spending billions of dollars in creating a dreamland for high rollers, with one destination offering a royal treatment at the low cost of a $1.6 minimum betting requirement.

With the political transition completed, the VIP business is back to normalcy - as evidenced by Sky 32, an elite oasis of luxury on the 32nd floor of the Galaxy Macau casino, offers commanding views, a waterfall, a bar with vintage single malt whiskeys - and six sumptuous rooms where players must commit to betting at least 10 million yuan ($1.6 million). - Zerohedge


Like the luxury automobile industry, that rarely sees economic downturns during recessionary periods, the rich will always spend lavishly despite the poor and middle class tightening their belts.  And as middle America falls back to local casinos on Indian reservations, or home poker games to satisfy their gambling lusts, the world of gaming is making huge bets that the elite will always want the world's finest, and are willing to pay to play no matter the financial cost.

PBS Frontline: A view of the MF Global Fraud and Jon Corzine's gambling psyche

In the world of politics and finance, the ones who normally make it to the top are those who have psychopathic traits.  Psychopathy is defined by the lack of emotions, and the inability to understand the difference between right and wrong, moral or immoral behaviors.  This is one of the reasons why many CEO's can change lives so easily during times of layoffs without having a second thought, and how politicians can make policy that affects millions of people without feeling remorse when their decisions go wrong.



The psychopath also never apologizes unless their own personal life or lifestyle is at stake, which makes the entire MF Global fraud scandal so much more intriguing as the former CEO Jon Corzine, has never apologized for his actions, nor felt any real remorse for the over $1 billion dollars of customer funds used and lost in the reckless pursuit of high stakes gambling.

The key indicator of a psychopath, according to researcher Jonathan Zap during his time on Coast to Coast AM on Feb 25th, is the need to take massive risks, with both lives and money, to receive even the most miniscule amount of euphoria, since these people lack the ability to feel emotion in day to day living as normal people do.

On May 22nd, PBS Frontline did an hour long expose of the MF Global scandal, and on the history of Jon Corzine as an individual who wielded charisma, risk, and power like one uses a salt shaker to season their meal.

In the end, Jon Corzine, as during his days with Goldman Sachs, in the Senate and Governorship positions in politics, and finally at MF Global, did everything to benefit himself, and to feed the ever demanding need for risk and excitement, without a thought or care for anyone who was hurt or destroyed through his actions.
