In 2006, Heller ran for Congress in Nevada’s District 2. Congressman Dean Heller served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. On May 3, 2011, Governor Brian Sandoval appointed Heller to the US Senate to fill...

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and his allies are preparing primary challenges against Republican senators, a source close to Bannon confirmed to CNN. The target list includes Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker, Alabama Sen. Luther Strange, Nevada Sen. Dean Heller and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, the source said. Flake, a strong critic of Trump, has not backed down from the President in the wake of Trump's public attacks against him. Politico first reported the developments. The news comes as Bannon claimed "the Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election" in an interview that...

    “Our booking team, and they’re good, reached out to Republicans of all stripes across the country today. Let’s be honest. Republicans often don’t really mind coming on Fox News Channel. We couldn’t get anyone to come and defend him here because we thought, in balance, someone should do that. We worked very hard at it throughout the day, and we were unsuccessful.” One Republican that apparently hadn’t been reached out to, is Danny Tarkanian, running for U.S. Senate against Dean Heller in Nevada. He accepted Shepard Smith’s challenge today on social media. He tweeted: Hey @ShepNewsTeam bookers didn’t contact me...

    Recent history says Danny Tarkanian is wasting his time challenging Sen. Dean Heller in next year’s Republican primary. From 2012 to 2016, only one sitting U.S. senator lost a primary challenge: a then-80-year-old Richard Lugar, R-Ind., in 2012. That’s a tough place to start from, but past trends ignore the unique problems Heller faces in his re-election bid. Here are four reasons Tarkanian can best Heller and advance to the general election. 1. Heller voted against repealing Obamacare. For six years, being a Republican meant vigorously opposing Obamacare. Heller voted to repeal it in 2015. But when Heller had a...

    Nearly nine months after the conclusion of the 2016 general election and despite months of hesitation, Republican Sen. Dean Heller has finally confirmed that he voted for Donald Trump for president. In a short statement released to The Nevada Independent, Heller — who is up for reelection in 2018 and is being challenged in a primary by businessman Danny Tarkanian — confirmed that he indeed voted for the Republican nominee during the 2016 election after more than a year of vocal criticism toward the party’s nominee. “Yes, I voted for Donald Trump,” he said in a statement texted to a...

    Republican Sen. Dean Heller said Friday that he’s “pleased” the Republican effort to repeal portions of Obamacare ultimately failed. “I feel real pleased at the way this thing turned out and we’re turning the page now to tax reform” the Nevada senator told a local CNN affiliate, KRNV, of the failed Obamacare repeal bill.

    The Republican-led Senator lied to the American people. They promised to repeal the failed Obamacare law for seven-and-a-half years. They ran their campaigns on repealing Obamacare. But they all lied. And then Mitch McConnell had the gall to blame President Trump for expecting too much from the senate! .Sens. tweeting support of McConnell: ▪️Cornyn ▪️Corker ▪️Tillis ▪️Isakson ▪️Collins ▪️Hatch ▪️Gardner ▪️Heller ▪️Flake ▪️Young ▪️Capito.

    Pressured by abortion activists, a Republican U.S. Senator from Nevada flip-flopped on Monday and said he would “protect” Planned Parenthood. U.S. Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nevada, faced an angry crowd of abortion activists Monday at his town hall meeting, according to Nevada Public Radio. Many conservative lawmakers have faced hostile crowds at town hall meetings across the country in the past few months. Heller has a pro-life voting record. He recently voted to overturn an Obama administration rule that basically forced states to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. He also voted to confirm new U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch....
  • Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals decides the Second Amendment is just a suggestion

    Law. Made up Liberal politicians who run states and cities have certain habits they come back to again and again. One is the passage of gun bans they know perfectly well are clear violations of the Second Amendment. Why do the do this? Partly because ideologically they can’t help themselves. But also: They hope to create test cases in the courts that, they hope, will produce favorable rulings and thus establish case law that renders the entire Second Amendment null and void. Toward that end, the State of Maryland scored a very big victory today, as the Fourth Circuit Court...

    It looks like Neil Gorsuch is going to have his plate full when he finally takes his seat on the Supreme Court. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has been busy uprooting the Second Amendment this week, delivering a stunning opinion which essentially overturns the Heller decision without so much as a by your leave to SCOTUS. It involves a case out of Maryland where the state’s Democrats decided to ban “assault rifles” and high-capacity magazines. Apparently the idea of precedent is not something they care to have any truck with, as Charles C.W. Cook explains at National Review....

    National Review ^ | 22 Feb 2017 | CHARLES C. W. COOKE
    Freed up by the Supreme Court’s ongoing reluctance to engage in depth with the Second Amendment, the Fourth Circuit has taken it upon itself to rewrite Heller en banc. In a 10-4 decision, issued yesterday afternoon, the court upheld Maryland’s ban on both “assault weapons” and “high capacity magazines.” By so doing, it deprived the people of Maryland, the Carolinas, and the Virginias of the core protections to which the Constitution entitles them. As Judge Traxler’s dissent pointedly establishes, the majority achieved this transformation by contriving “a heretofore unknown ‘test,’ which is whether the firearm in question is ‘most useful...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) have introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, which would move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and therefore recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital city. Currently, the U.S. Embassy is located in Tel Aviv. In a statement, Sen. Cruz said that it was "finally time" to move the embassy. “Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided capital of Israel,” Sen. Cruz said. “Unfortunately, the Obama administration's vendetta against the Jewish state has been so vicious that to even utter this simple truth - let alone the reality...

    During last night’s final presidential debate, the issue of the Second Amendment came up. Hillary Clinton tried her best to say she would protect the right to bear arms, but wants “sensible regulation”… whatever that’s supposed to mean. I want people who shouldn’t have guns not to be able to threaten you, kill you or members of your family.

    During Wednesday's debate, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton made a rather curious claim about the District of Columbia v. Heller Supreme Court case: D.C. was merely trying to "protect toddlers," and the Supreme Court didn't accept the "reasonable regulation." Hillary on Guns Just one small issue: that's not at all what Heller was concerned with. Prior to the Heller decision, the District of Columbia's restrictions on handguns weren't what anyone would call "reasonable." The Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975 was a complete and total ban on the private ownership of handguns--even by trained police officers and by people with a...

    Last Year, Clinton Lambasted The Supreme Court’s Decision In District Of Columbia V. Heller, Which Found D.C.’s Ban On Handguns Unconstitutional. “While Clinton has previously supported an assault weapons ban, this is the first time since launching her campaign that she indicated that she would take on the Supreme Court over gun issues. Although Clinton did not identify which Supreme Court case she disagreed with, she appeared to be criticizing the landmark 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller, which found the handgun ban in Washington, D.C., unconstitutional… ‘We’ve got to go after this,’ Clinton continued. ‘And here again,...
