    BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge in North Dakota on Thursday blocked a new Obama administration rule that would give the federal government jurisdiction over some state waterways. U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson of North Dakota issued a temporary injunction against a the rule, which gives the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers authority to protect some streams, tributaries and wetlands under the Clean Water Act. The rule was scheduled to take effect Friday. “The risk of irreparable harm to the states is both imminent and likely,” Judge Erickson said in blocking the rule from taking effect....

Contributions at the event hit a high of $33,400. The event, which drew more than 100 people, raised more than $300,000.” What kind of newspaper is the Las Vegas Sun that its editor and publisher hosts Democratic Party fundraisers with the president?

    An arbitrator has awarded a contract in favor of Clark County, ending the county's two-year stretch of negotiations with its largest union. The arbitrator sided with the county, agreeing to end longevity pay for future hires. The Service Employees International Union Local 1107, which represents more than 4,000 county workers, had sought to preserve longevity pay for future employees. Under the decision, county employees get a cost-of-living increase of 2.5 percent retroactive to July 1, 2014; and a 2 percent cost-of-living increase retroactive to July 1. The decision, which the county received Tuesday, almost entirely ends a longevity system for...

Then there are “the crazies.” Back from a notably uneventful and restful two-week vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Obama was immediately on the road for a short trip here, first to speak at a green energy conference hosted by retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, then to raise money for his preferred successor, former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. Ruddy from the sun, Obama described himself as “refreshed, renewed, recharged — a little feisty.” And he delivered, recounting the ride...

    The Warren Buffett-owned utility NV Energy has a plan that could pad the pockets of Berkshire Hathaway shareholders at the expense of Nevada residents by gaming the regulatory system meant to keep utilities in check, according to critics of the plan. NV Energy, a major Nevada utility, seems to be intentionally creating a power shortfall into its three-year action plan in order to increase electricity rates for customers in order to build an expensive new power plant. Building the plant would mean a guaranteed rate of return for Berkshire Hathaway investors, but would also cause long-term energy price increases for...

    Dennis Hof - a self described “legal brothel mogul, HBO-TV star, best-selling author, successful business entrepreneur and Nevadan” - has joined the Libertarian Party and organized an exploratory committee to run for U.S. Senate. Mr. Hof is very interested in running for Sen. Harry Reid’s perch next year. “I’m fed up, and not going to take it anymore. I’ve voted for Democrats and Republicans all my life, and all it’s gotten me, and all Nevadans, is more taxes and regulations and less freedoms. I’m disgusted with them both,” says Mr. Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, located near Carson...

    With Nevada Rep. Joe Heck declaring his intention to run for the soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat once Harry Reid retires, the Republican Party finally feels like they’ve got a candidate in the Silver state who can fill that position. That is, however, if he can win Nevada’s crucial Latino vote. Heck – a House member, physician and brigadier general in the Army Reserve – has been touted by the GOP as a Latino-friendly candidate who has won three Las Vegas-area congressional elections thanks in large part to his moderate tone toward immigration reform. During the Senate race, observers say that Heck...

That’s why...

  • Federal Judge Rules Cops Can Take Over Your Home As They See Fit

    The Third Amendment was created to protect your home from being quartered by soldiers without your consent. It has very rarely been a matter of debate or litigation, until now. Federal district court Judge Andrew Gordon recently ruled that the police are exempt from the 3rd Amendment with a case out of Henderson, Nevada after a family had their home broken into and seized by local law enforcement who stated they needed the home to gain a “tactical advantage” against suspected criminals in a neighboring house. Police actually forced their way into this family’s home, pepperballed the father and his...

    LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) – Teachers who work for the Clark County School District may not get a pay raise in the upcoming school year. They are not happy about it and they are making sure the district hears them loud and clear. Teachers say they feel under valued at a time when the district is offering a sign-on bonus to new teachers of up to five thousand dollars. They say the district should focus on retention, rather than recruitment. "My stomach just dropped. It was just another punch to the stomach," said Elizabeth Harris.
