    A massive high-tech, sphere-shaped venue is set to break ground this summer in Las Vegas. The venue is expected to open on New Year's Eve 2020 and will host concerts and other events while engaging multiple senses, officials announced Friday. The New York-based Madison Square Garden Company revealed details of the 18,000-seat, futuristic-looking facility it is developing in partnership with Las Vegas Sands, which operates two casino-resorts on the Las Vegas Strip adjacent to the planned arena.

    Police say seatbelts saved the lives of two people who crashed their $300,000 supercar in the Nevada desert, but the vehicle’s engineers deserve a fair share of the credit. The Nevada Highway Patrol found the totaled McLaren 720 about 70 yards off a road near Lake Mead last week, with damage suggesting that it had rolled at least once as it just missed falling down a ravine. The 710 horsepower coupé is one of the quickest cars in the world, and has a top speed of 212 mph. It features a carbon fiber passenger cell, similar to a racecar’s, that’s...

    Then-Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid released a letter in the heat of the 2016 election alleging Trump-Russia collusion even though the CIA director at the time urged him not to, according to a person familiar with their conversation. Mr. Reid’s Aug. 27 letter to the FBI appears to mark the first time a Democrat officially accused President’ Trump’s campaign of colluding with the Russian government to hack his party’s computers. The letter has come to represent for conservatives the “deep state” — Obama loyalists leaking unproven allegations to the press against Mr. Trump and his people to ruin the campaign,...

    In secrecy the lead prosecutor in the Bunkerville Standoff case, Steven Myhre, was moved from his First Assistant US Attorney position to a new one in the Nevada US Attorney's office in recent months. His new position as "senior litigation counsel" includes duties like training new prosecutors in the Nevada office. Myhre was roundly criticized by a federal judge (Gloria M. Navarro) for deliberately withholding evidence proving the innocence of defendants in the Bunkerville Standoff case. The case involved rancher Cliven Bundy, his family members, and supporters who came to the family's defense in April 2014 when the federal government...

    The first police officer to breach the Las Vegas gunman’s Mandalay Bay suite Oct. 1 did not activate his body camera, the Las Vegas Review-Journal learned Tuesday. Metropolitan Police Department lawyers confirmed the detail a few hours after Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo announced that body camera footage from the breach would be released sometime Wednesday. It is unclear why the officer, Levi Hancock, did not activate his camera. The footage expected Wednesday will come from two other officers who helped clear the gunman’s rooms. Etc...

    Over the past decade, more than 3.5 million Americans have left high-tax blue states like California, New York, and many others in the Northeast, for low-tax red states like Arizona, Florida, and Texas. While the migration has been happening for years, conservative economists Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore are forecasting the next significant movement out of blue states could be right around the corner. Earlier this week, in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal titled “So Long, California. Sayonara, New York,” Laffer and Moore spoke about a provision within the brand-new tax bill that could create a mass migration...

    A New Jersey police department has released a video showing a former Port Authority commissioner and ex-Hillary Clinton aide trying to use her position to threaten officers who pulled over her daughter’s friend during a traffic stop on Easter weekend. The remarkable video released by the Tenafly Police Department shows Caren Z. Turner, 60, a Democratic Party lobbyist, flash her badge and boast of her connections to the chief of police and the local mayor while berating two officers who pulled over a car whose Nevada registration had expired. The car was driven by a male friend of her daughter,...

    Please ignore the advertising slogan “What happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas.” It’s not true. Las Vegas is the crossroads of America. What happens here is happening everywhere. So, I’ve uncovered the biggest liberal scam in America, going on right here in Las Vegas. It revolves around my home community in Henderson. I live in exclusive Anthem Country Club. There are about 1500 beautiful homes behind the gates of Anthem. These homes are together worth around $1 billion dollars, in just one country club, in one Las Vegas suburb. What’s the amazing appeal of Anthem Country Club? It’s...

    If you want to empower women, stop talking about the mythical gender pay gap. ... It’s important to understand how the left is twisting numbers for political purposes, but it’s also vital to rebut the destructive message they’re sending. The subtext of Equal Pay Day is that women can’t. No matter how hard women work, no matter how smart they are, no matter their choices, women can’t earn as much as men. Try your hardest, sister, but your gender will keep you down.

    Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | April 8, 2018 | Victor Joecks
    It’s easy to vote illegally in Nevada. All a non-citizen has to do is go the DMV and ask. The DMV uses the same form regardless of whether you’re getting a driver’s license, ID card or driver’s authorization card. The latter are for those, like illegal aliens, who can’t meet the proof of identity requirements for the other documents. At the bottom of that form is a voter registration application. The voter registration form asks if you’re a citizen and if you’re old enough to vote. What’s to stop someone from lying? Nothing and no one. You could get a...

If you had contacted me about this, please do so again. Thanks.
  • Background check supporters should blame themselves

    04/07/2018 2:50:04 AM PDT · by rellimpank · 11 replies
    Backers of Question 1, which mandated background checks on private-party gun sales, have spent the past 15 months complaining that state officials have failed to implement the initiative. They’ve pointed fingers at everyone involved except the guilty party — themselves. A recent letter from Gov. Brian Sandoval’s office confirmed this yet again. Last week, Gov. Sandoval’s office sent FBI officials a letter thanking them for agreeing to discuss implementing Question 1, which voters narrowly approved in November 2016. The initiative required private-party gun buyers to obtain an FBI background check. After that election, Gov. Sandoval’s office asked then-President Barack Obama’s...

    Brennan played a ‘prominent role’ in Russia probe. He briefed Harry Reid about Trump associates’ contacts with Russians. Reid believed that Brennan had an ‘ulterior motive.’ A book published in March offered a startling but little-noticed revelation about former CIA Director John Brennan. According to “Russian Roulette,” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid believed Brennan was using him as a conduit to publicize possible links between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government.

    MADISON, Wisconsin, April 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Federal Elections Commission fined Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin for failing to report $116,898 in contributions to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Democratic Senate candidate Russ Feingold. According to FEC documents, the abortion affiliate’s political arm reported $133,305.04 in expenditures on its October 2016 quarterly report, but that sum included two payments of $58,449.04 apiece, dated August 31, 2016, but not submitted in any previous reports. One was a donation to Clinton, who lost to President Donald Trump, and the other a donation to Feingold, a former Wisconsin senator who unsuccessfully...
