    Rollcall ^ | 2/1/16 | Neils
    A day after the Iowa caucuses and a week from the New Hampshire primary, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is back blasting the lack of diversity in the states that come before his home of Nevada in the presidential nominating process. Asked about the outcome in Iowa, where Sen. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., finishing very narrowly behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Reid highlighted his role in changing the process to put more focus on the subsequent contests in states with more diverse Democratic electorates. His efforts helped move Nevada’s Democratic caucuses earlier in the electoral calendar.

    Wash Post ^ | August 23 2015
    Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid gave a forceful endorsement Sunday to the nuclear deal with Iran, a key boost that provides continued momentum for preventing Congress from blocking President Obama’s pact. The Nevada Democrat said the deal, which lifts economic sanctions against the rogue nation for pledges to limit its nuclear program, is the “best way” to curtail Iran’s military ambitions, and he pledged to round up more support to thwart its opponents. “I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure the deal stands,” he said in a telephone interview with The Washington Post from his...

Go to the Internet and search "supreme court justice Clarence Thomas" and click on "images." And leave it up while you read. Harry Reid is railing against "white men" on the U.S. Supreme Court. Harry, Senate majority leader and one grumpy old man, is angry that the Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Hobby Lobby recently in a major case involving religious freedom. In case you don't know what the Hobby Lobby decision...

    Mr. Cleanface’s Dirty Laundry: Harry Reid’s Mob MoneyBy Fedora “I’ve gotta Cleanface in my pocket,” boasted Kansas City Mafia representative Joe Agosto, unaware the FBI was monitoring his conversation (reproduced loosely in the movie Casino). FBI surveillance of Mafia gambling operations in Las Vegas in the late 1970s picked up Agosto making references to an individual he codenamed “Mr. Cleanface” and “Mr. Gillette”. Agosto’s conversations mentioned Mr. Cleanface was close to Nevada Governor-Elect Robert List. After turning state’s evidence, Agosto claimed that Mr. Cleanface was Harry Reid, then chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission and sporting a cleanshaven, boyish look....

The first two grants are for $8,000,000 dollars and $5,000,000 respectively, and they will go to purchase 24 new CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) buses which demonstrate a positive environmental impact on air quality, and will replace vehicles that significantly exceeded their useful life.

    Dina Titus won’t apparently be making a clean exit from Washington just yet; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid appointed her to serve on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. The eight-member commission monitors and investigates civil rights cases and reports to Congress and the administration. Its most well-known work came during the 2000 presidential election aftermath, when the commission investigated charges of racist voting practices affecting the election and recount. The president appoints four members of the commission, and House and Senate leaders appoint the other four. Titus is Reid’s only appointment. The seat has been held by Arlen Melendez,...

    Election '10: The future debated the past in Nevada on Thursday night, with the Tea Party's Sharron Angle demonstrating why the Democrats will no longer be the majority and Harry Reid will no longer be their leader. It was no easy task for Sen. Harry Reid to stand up there and try to explain why he deserved re-election as senator from a state with 14% unemployment and a foreclosure rate five times the national average. If the policies of an administration whose legislation he quarterbacked through the Senate were working, it is certainly not evident in Nevada. This time around,...

    In close races, conventional political wisdom says it’s risky business to raise issues that might alienate centrist voters. But just a few weeks before the start of early voting, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is making a push to address two of the most emotional — and electorate-splitting — issues out there: immigration reform, and the role of gays in the military. Led by Reid, Democrats are hoping to advance a repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on sexual orientation, and the long-simmering DREAM Act, which would provide green cards to young illegal immigrants enlisted in the...

After a Thursday meeting with Senate Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has apparently dropped plans to pursue cap-and-trade before the August recess. He doesn't have the votes to overcome a GOP filibuster, and saving the earth from a phantom threat stands way below jobs on Americans' wish list. But watch out after November.

    Health Reform: As major businesses lay out the impact of ObamaCare in dollars and jobs, two things are clear: the costs will be enormous, and the president's vow to focus on "jobs, jobs, jobs" can no longer be believed.

They are merely being shifted to the states and to America's businesses, large and small.

Illinois' senior senator, Dick Durbin, among others, was an early and enthusiastic supporter of the idea, but now is among those...

    Signs of real Hope and Change from Nevada! Via the Las Vegas Review-Journal: It’s the highest stakes ever for a Nevada election, and former boxer Sen. Harry Reid is on the ropes early. Either Republican Danny Tarkanian or Sue Lowden would knock out Reid in a general election, according to a recent poll of Nevada voters.

Nevadans favored Tarkanian over Reid 49 percent to 38 percent...

    Reid my lips: Know new taxes, eventually, if Harry has his way. Ditto for knowing bureaucratic health care hell, cap and trade costs galore, pork for all—but how much money for Nevada?—and federal deficit spending piling on debt for our heirs. But Sen. Harry Reid must face the voters next year, so the Senate majority leader is right where conservatives want him. Say what? Read on. Fastidious Harry is in conservatives’ crosshairs … if Republicans field a good candidate, raise moola and work their tails off. Rep. Dean Heller, Nevada’s lone GOP House member, won’t take the senator on despite...

    Cap-And-Trade: The administration likes to defend bad policies with analogies to the post office. New studies from a business group and the administration itself confirm that cap-and-trade belongs in the dead-letter bin.Along with Energy Secretary Steven Chu, Rep. Ed Markey likens the cost of the Waxman-Markey cap-and trade bill to "about a postage stamp a day," based on estimates made by the Congressional Budget Office and the EPA. But as we and others have shown, they arrive at this magical number in part by ignoring the hit on gross domestic product and employment that will occur. As Garret Vaughan, economist...

    Toledo on the Move ^ | Monday, August 10, 2009 | David Custer
    An empty chamber in a loaded gun saved the life of a Toledo police officer. This, after a man wanted for murder took police on a high-speed chase and an intense shoot-out. "Officer Board came very close to losing his life last night, that's fair to say," said Toledo Police Chief Mike Navarre. Navarre says Sunday night's shoot-out at Dorr and Westwood could have been a lot worse. Four officers walked away from the incident unharmed: Eric Board, Diana Trevino, Charles Leroux and Lieutenant Mark Collins. The suspect, 21-year-old Devon Tyrone Woods, was not so lucky. A three mile high-speed...

    IBD Exclusive Series: Government-Run Healthcare: A Prescription For Failure Discourse: At a town hall last week in Dallas, an elderly "mob" with "manufactured" outrage questioned AARP's support for nationalized health care, asking: "Do you work for us or do we work for you?"There were no swastika-wearing grannies at Tuesday's meeting, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi might claim. Nor were they "taking their cues from talk show hosts, Internet rumor-mongers . . . and insurance rackets," as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said. But they were mad as hell at the perception that AARP was selling them out in the...

    Energy: A Senate vote to kill funding for the spent fuel repository in Nevada shows the Democratic Party and this administration aren't serious about energy independence, economic growth or environmental protection.Killing the storage facility for the spent fuel rods produced by the nation's nuclear power industry has long been a dream of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Obama. Last week, the Senate granted their wish, voting to deny the resources needed to complete a review necessary for Yucca Mountain to open. "This is a major victory for Nevada," said Reid, who is up for re-election next year. "I...
