    Backers of a voter-approved gun buyer screening initiative that passed in November 2016 but was never enacted have filed notice they'll ask the Nevada Supreme Court to overrule a judge who decided the measure was fatally flawed and could not be enforced. The state high court should side with voters who chose to close what proponents of the measure call a legal loophole that lets gun purchasers skip background screenings when buying from another person or online, attorney Tami Cowden said Thursday. Twenty states have similar laws, she said. Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval declined through his spokeswoman to respond to...

    President Donald Trump deviated from his previously measured comments about the woman who has accused his Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when he questioned Thursday why the woman didn't call the police 36 years ago, when she says the incident happened. "Why didn't somebody call the FBI 36 years ago? I mean you could also say when did this all happen, what's going on? To take a man like this and besmirch -- now with that being said, let her have her say and let's see how it all works out," Trump said during an interview on...

    Photos posted online from Las Vegas show a massive turnout for President’s Trump’s campaign rally being held Thursday night at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The half-mile-plus lines in the 95 degree heat are reminiscent of the huge crowds that turned out in 2015-2016 for Trump’s presidential campaign rallies. The Washington Post’s Ashley Parker reported on the enthusiasm of the Trump supporters, “Some brief anecdotal scene from the Trump rally here in Las Vegas: One woman drove in from San Diego. Another drove 16 hours from Elk City, Idaho. A man and his son flew down from Washington State. And...

    "Hell no, I don't agree with that" Ryan Bundy Responds To "Rape For Rape" Content Placed on His "Ryan Bundy For Governor" Website By Web Designer Of Site Cardiff Gerhardt When someone runs as a "third party" like Ryan Bundy is for Governor of Nevada as an Independent, one can expect the established political machines to either spy on the campaign or actively try to cause damage if the third candidate poses a serious threat. In the UK the United Kingdom Independence Party found itself hit hard by people who made outrageous comments as candidates or elected officials or ended...
  • Las Vegas judge nullifies results of Republican election

    In a decision that appears to flout Nevada election law, a Las Vegas judge has nullified the results of a Republican primary election. Jason Burke defeated Mack Miller by 122 votes in the June 12 primary for state Assembly District 5, but a judge declared Miller “the rightful winner of the election” because Burke did not file campaign finance reports in time. “This is certainly a novel case that I haven’t seen before,” said Las Vegas attorney Daniel Stewart, who specializes in Nevada election law. “But no two election contests are the same, and it seems like every election cycle...

    In a recent interview with the Sun, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he loses sleep “wondering if we’re doing everything possible to protect our children, protect our community.” There’s no reason to doubt the sincerity of that comment. Lombardo clearly takes his responsibility to protect and serve the people of Southern Nevada seriously, as he showed most vividly during the minutes, days and weeks after the Oct. 1 shooting. But when asked later in the interview whether he’d support legislation to increase gun safety in Nevada, Lombardo demurred. He declined to give support for broad measures — bans on sales of...

    There have been three crashes in about one month on the newly opened Interstate 11, resulting in four deaths and causing concern with transportation officials. Representing the first new portion of highway added in the United States in 25 years, I-11 is a 15-mile stretch linking motorists between the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge near the Hoover Dam and Henderson, bypassing Boulder City. The celebration of the newly opened road on Aug. 9 was short-lived. On Aug. 14, a two-vehicle crash left two men dead. On Aug. 28, a two-vehicle crash left two dead and three injured. On Sept. 6,...

    ---(snip)-- Lombardo maintains that “well over” 40 percent of suspects or victims in local violent crimes are Californians with ties to that state’s law enforcement and its prison system. Some of them have been identified gang members. The nexus might be because past legislation depopulated some California prisons, eased parole conditions and lowered the amount of time served for non-violent offenders jailed for parole violations. Could it also be that criminals think the valley is a good place to commit crimes and easily flee back home?

    "Stay with the Bundy's and you'll be OK" Cliven Bundy Internet broadcaster Pete Santilli was arrested in Burns, Oregon the evening of January 26th, 2016 just hours after the bloody FBI operation outside of town that killed LaVoy Finicum and injured Ryan Bundy. Santilli was in town broadcasting the news of what happened and did different things from standing outside the hospital where the injured Ryan Bundy was being treated to vaping in front of the camera for some apparent stress relief. But the feds decided to nab him and wanted to try him in Oregon for his internet streams....

    America’s political sphere is becoming a place where outcomes considered unthinkable in the past are becoming reality. This can almost entirely be attributed to the rise of populism. In recent decades, the ruling-class has presided over a disastrous foreign policy, deep economic recessions and the diminishment of human rights. Now, it appears the people have had enough. Whether you love them or loath them, Trump, Bernie, Ocasio-Cortez, Patriot Prayer and Antifa are all the expression of the citizens’ demand for change. But these populist uprisings are not confined to the federal level. A man by the name of Ryan Bundy...

    In 2016, anti-Second Amendment zealot Michael Bloomberg, was able to place Question 1, severe restrictions on private gun sales, on the ballot in Nevada.  The Bloomberg supported initiative outspent the opposition $18,913,032.54 to $6,639,608.20.  The costs do not include the money spent to put the initiative on the ballot. The measure passed 558,631 votes to 548,732 votes. Rural areas overwhelmingly voted against the measure; Las Vegas voters overwhelmingly voted for it. After the initiative passed, it could not be implemented, because it required the state to demand things the State of Nevada had no legal right to demand. The...

    The girlfriend of the Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock claimed she worked for the FBI on a loan application, according to the Australian national. Marilou Danley, who fingerprints were also found on Paddock’s horde of ammunition packed into unused rifle magazines, told the consumer credit reporting bureaus that her place of employment was the “Federal Bureau of Investigation.” One source within the FBI told TruPundit that the Bureau “might have made payments to Danley but it is above my level."

    While others are free after the truth came out, three men are still in prison in spite of the obvious rigging of the cases against them by the US Justice Department (Todd-Engel-14 years, Greb Burleson-68 years, three months and Jerry Delemus-seven years, three months). Before Todd Engel was removed late Thursday from a privately owned prison in Pahrump, Nevada to his new federal prison location, Briana Bundy issued an appeal which was published on his Facebook support page. The appeal links to a letter Todd wrote called "A Long Trail Of Abuses" Link here:..... Bundy is urging that the letter...
