  • Report: Extremists emboldened after Nevada ranch standoff

    Far right wing extremists have been emboldened by the standoff earlier this year between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government, according to a study released Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The report, entitled "War in the West" examines the conflict between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and militiamen who supported Bundy, who owed more than $1 million in grazing fees and fines to the government, despite insisting that he had "preemptive rights" to let his cattle graze on the federally owned land.

    With most legislative sessions for 2014 adjourned, many states are now looking forward to November. Other than elections, various ballot initiatives will be voted on later this year. Perhaps the most economically damaging proposal comes from the state of Nevada, where voters will decide whether or not to impose a 2 percent modified gross receipts tax, or margin tax on the state’s businesses. Currently, only Texas has the economically devastating margin tax, at 1 percent, and that has been the subject of multiple votes to repeal just in the 2013 legislative session. Other states, such as Washington and Ohio also...

    Nevada, buckle up. Over the next few months, you’ll learn how much your health insurance premiums will go up for next year. The early evidence isn’t good — the percentage increase could be in double digits. But that’s nothing compared with what you’ll face in 2017. In May, I released a comprehensive study showing how the Affordable Care Act will likely play out over the next few years. The diagnosis isn’t good. First, the short version. In two years, the ACA’s structural problems will lead to substantial premium increases. Once that happens, Nevadans will likely leave the insurance market in...

    Students at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas are asking the former secretary of state to return the speaking fee she is set to collect when she appears at a university fundraiser in October. ... The university is paying Clinton $225,000 for the appearance with money from "private donations secured by the UNLV foundation," according to a spokeswoman for the university who went on to say that no money from the school's operating budget will be used on the fee. Even with that caveat, the news of Clinton's fee did not sit well with the university's students, especially considering Nevada's higher...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Thursday marked the anniversary of the passage of comprehensive immigration reform in the Senate and slammed the House for doing nothing on the issue. “Today marks the 365th day that the Tea Party-driven House of Representatives has sat on their hands refusing to fix our broken immigration system,” Reid said on the floor. “The Senate was able to pass immigration reform 52 weeks ago because both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate understood the urgent need to mend our nation’s immigration laws.”

Rate hikes have nearly tripled tuition costs there since 2004.

    The U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board’s cancelation of federal trademark registration for the name Washington “Redskins,” after ruling it disparages Native Americans, puts pressure on team owner Daniel Snyder and the National Football League (NFL) to change the name but falls far short of settling the issue. The split, 2-1, decision by unelected trademark board members shows the increasingly heavy hand that politics is playing in the activities of the private sector, since the ruling followed recent public calls for a name change from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The team counters that the long-standing “Redskins” name...

There has been some speculation about the possibility of the Obama administration approving the Keystone XL pipeline now that Iraq’s oil output is on seriously unstable footing (although, reality check: The Keystone XL pipeline by...

Nevada was the first state to institute a “none of the above” line to its ballot in 1975, as a way for voters to protest weak, unqualified candidates.

    Sunday’s slaying of two Las Vegas policemen raises to 23 the number of law enforcement officers killed by gunfire this year, a 53 percent increase over the tally at this time last year, which is spurring concern about the influence of radical groups. After shooting the policemen at point-blank range, the husband and wife killers took the officers’ weapons and reportedly covered them with a Revolutionary War-era Gadsden flag, which depicts a coiled snake and the words “Don’t Tread on Me.” The officers’ killers — Jerad Miller and his wife, Amanda — had been at Cliven Bundy’s ranch during his...

Bowe Bergdahl before it was made, Harry Reid bristled at the question. “I’m not sure I’m the only one,” he said. “A big deal over nothing. Is it Friday or is it Saturday? What difference does it make? What difference does it make?” Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton infamously snapped, “What difference at this point...

    Rancher Cliven Bundy, who you may remember from American politics circa April 2014, has officially left the Republican Party. The news is unlikely to cause too many sleepless nights at Nevada GOP headquarters. Bundy and his wife signed new voter registration forms at an event held by the Independent American Party, to which the Bundys now belong. The event, the AP reports, was "held to honor Bundy for what organizers called 'his courage in standing up for state sovereignty.' " The IAP promoted the Bundys' cause earlier this month, calling on Nevada residents to file "CRIME REPORTS" against the Bureau...

This fraud often decides elections and swings more votes than the other forms of voter fraud. Today while driving to buy groceries in Reno I heard two Ben Kieckhefer radio ads, minutes apart.

We cannot afford to treat them like ordinary citizens. Extraordinary measures must be taken to stave off their attacks on our Government.” The “attacks” Reid wants to stave off are studies that contradict Administration policies and candidates that vie to unseat Democratic officeholders—both funded by donations from the...

The would-be Mount Reagan, at 3,366 feet, is not nearly the highest peak in Nevada. But it does overlook Las Vegas and, as such, would remind all who visit and live there of the former two-term California governor who went on to become president and lodestar of the Republican Party.

    Harry Reid is proud of his vote for ObamaCare. He’s even prouder of the fact that he figured out a procedural way to ram it through the Senate without a single Republican vote.

    Questions, questions… I have a whole lot of them for Harry Reid. I know that his salary as a Senator, is about 200k per year. And I know that he made a substantial amount as an attorney. What I want to know, is how much he has made off land in Nevada. Specifically BLM land and mining/mineral rights. Open Secrets states Reid’s value is between 2.5 and 6 million. I actually don’t believe that. I believe he has money buried in the desert so-to-speak, in shell companies and third parties all over the place. I’m all for making a lot...

    Original Title:Vanderboegh to Harry Reid: “Don’t Poke the Wolverine With a Sharp Stick… Unless You Want Your B***s Ripped Off.” A militia leader who traveled to Nevada in order to protect the land surrounding Cliven Bundy’s Clark County ranch has accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of trying to provoke a new civil war in the United States. Video has emerged this week of Mike Vanderboegh, the founder of the Three Percenters group, lashing out at Sen. Reid (D-Nevada) during a recent address at the ranch, where supporters remain on site after federal officials attempted last month to confiscate the...

    House Speaker John Boehner can put his plans for a select committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi on hold. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has gotten to the bottom of the scandal: It's the Koch brothers' fault. Yes, the Nevada Democrat's obsession with billionaires Charles and David Koch extends to blaming them for the Republican-controlled House's desire to get to the bottom of why the Obama administration blamed a terrorist attack on an obscure anti-Islam video (to protect President Obama politically, according to emails newly obtained by Judicial Watch in a lawsuit). Here's Reid's statement on...

    Patience may be a virtue, but it is apparently one that a city of Henderson employee is seriously lacking. Bank employees say they had no choice but to call police after a customer came in and began making threats and was badmouthing employees. It happened a few days ago at a bank inside the Von's grocery store near Horizon Ridge and Horizon Drive. Bank employees say that a customer got mad because he didn't get helped until 7 minutes after the bank opened. According to bank employees, the customer later identified as Bobby Long had been waiting for 20 minutes...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)BUNKERVILLE, NV - An emotional crowd gathered for a town hall meeting on Thursday evening in Bunkerville. Residents and council members praised militia members gathered there in support of embattled rancher Cliven Bundy, but had nothing but vitriol for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie and the local and national media. "The day the militia [came] was the day I felt safe again in Nevada," one meeting attendee said. The meeting was standing-room only. City council members had harsh criticism for the media's take on the standoff between Bundy and the BLM. "I heard things...

    Metro officers deal with large crowds all the time, but nothing like this. The crowd included former military men and ex-cops, people with various motives, their fingers poised just above the triggers of powerful weapons. With so much firepower in so many hands, a small incident could have set off a bloodbath and left nearly two dozen officers dead. Assist. Sheriff Joe Lombardo:"We were outgunned, outmanned and there would not have been a good result from it." I-Team reporter George Knapp: "A lot of scenarios could have played out that would have left a lot of dead officers." Assist. Sheriff...

    Greg Sargent is a Washington Post blogger and compromised JournoList hack whose “Plum Line” entries are decidedly left of center. Greg was overwhelmed with enthusiasm last Friday when, for a brief but shining moment, it appeared President Obama was supporting the construction of the ground zero mosque. He gushed that it would “go down as one of the finest moments of his presidency.” Sargent contrasted Obama’s bold stance with the “clever little dodge” which some Republicans were using. Here’s his description of the conservative stance, “The group has the right to build the center, runs this argument, but they are...
