    Today's hearing for sentencing of Todd Engel after his conviction last year in a rigged trial, the first Bunkerville Standoff trial, resulted in a jail sentence. In the end Engel was given a 14-year sentence by US District Judge Gloria Navarro, even though his trial involved the rigged process of evidence proving his innocence being kept from judge and jury during his first trial. The courtroom was filled with government law enforcement and supporters of Todd Engel with federal law enforcement reported to be playing the role of "victims" of the 2014 Bunkerville Standoff.

The former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson spoke from the back benches of the House of Commons in what was dubbed his farewell speech today. Johnson said Prime Minister Theresa May was "dithering" about Brexit, but it is "not too late...

    The corporate owners of the Mandalay Bay casino filed suit against the victims of last year’s Las Vegas concert mass shooting, claiming it has no liability for the massacre, according to a published report on Monday. MGM Resorts International went to federal courts in Nevada and California and took on more than 1,000 shooting victims, saying claims against the hotel giant "must be dismissed." [Snip] Las Vegas lawyer Robert Eglet, who is representing several victims, told the paper that the hotel’s unusual action is a pre-emptive strike to get the cases heard in federal court instead of state court. Englet...

    The Senate on Wednesday took a symbolic shot at President Trump’s trade policy amid anxiety on Capitol Hill over his tariff strategy. Senators voted 88-11 to instruct lawmakers hashing out a deal on a government funding bill to include language “providing a role for Congress” on tariffs implemented for national security reasons, known as Section 232 of the trade laws. The vote is nonbinding, meaning lawmakers don’t have to add trade language into the funding bill. But the vote margin, with more senators supporting it than the amount needed to override a veto, underscores the depth of concern on Capitol...

    A Nevada judge has blocked the execution of two-time killer Scott Dozier scheduled for tonight. Pharmaceutical company Alvogen sued to stop its drug, the sedative midazolam, from being used for the execution. The company claimed that the drug was obtained by the state of Nevada illegally through subterfuge and was to be used for unapproved purposes. They also claimed that use of the drug might cause a botched execution. Oregon ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond are home tonight after they were pardoned by President Trump yesterday......

    The Trump Administration has decided to rescind race based guidelines for admission to schools and colleges instituted by the Obama Administration. The new guidelines are the ones that were in place during the George W. Bush Administration and they are race neutral. A U.S. District Judge has rejected a prosecution motion to reconsider her dismissal of charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and another key defendant who were accused in connection with the April 2014 standoff near Bundy Ranch northeast of Las Vegas. Judge Gloria Navarro reaffirmed her January mistrial with prejudice ruling that there was...

Federal prosecutors had asked her to reconsider her decision led by the new US Attorney in Las Vegas appointed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Dayle Elieson. Judge Navarro has denied the motion. Defense lawyers believe there will be an appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals by the prosecutors in the case.......

    Former Rep. Joe Heck received criticism this week after he posted a picture on Instagram of himself posing next to a slain zebra with the caption, “Great start to safari — two off my list: Zebra and Black Wildebeast.” But Heck’s apparent affinity for big-game hunting in South Africa didn’t just upset some in the public. The former Nevada Senate candidate earned a lashing from an organization he lobbied on behalf of this spring: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

    Newly released body camera footage shows Las Vegas police officers pausing for several minutes in the hallway of the Mandalay Bay hotel — as mass shooter Stephen Paddock guns down 58 people on the floor directly above them. “Holy sh-t that’s rapid fire,” officer Cordell Hendrex utters in the chilling video, reacting to Paddock’s gunfire — which he later described as “like thunder all around and above us,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The officer and his first-day trainee, Elif Varsin, stayed on the 31st floor for four-and-a-half minutes, even as they heard the shooter’s position reported as “the...

    President Trump again mocked Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Saturday for McCain’s thumbs-down vote on the Republican plan to repeal ObamaCare. Though Trump did not mention McCain by name, he has attacked the senator several times in recent weeks for his “no” on the GOP measure and has blamed McCain for the collapse of the Republican effort to repeal the act. Trump at a GOP rally in Nevada said McCain went thumbs-down on the bill, a reference to McCain using the gesture to signify his vote. "Nobody talked to him. Nobody needed to, and then he walked in: thumbs-down. It’s...

    Two weeks ago, Sen. Dean Heller’s campaign released video evidence that Rep. Jacky Rosen lied about her résumé by claiming to have a college degree she doesn’t have. Rosen is the Democrat running against Heller for U.S. Senate in one of the country’s highest profile-races. Wait, you haven’t heard about that the résumé scandal? Not surprising. That’s because the media didn’t cover it, even though Rosen’s fib is on tape. In 1979, Rosen earned a degree in psychology from the University of Minnesota, but here’s what she told CSPAN3 last year. “When I was in college in Minnesota, I actually...
