    I have been uncovering and exposing election fraud in Nevada for several years now. The problem is that no one in a position of authority Left or Right ever seems to ever care about it…and that’s likely because they’re all benefitting from it. Unchecked election fraud was one of the main reasons I decided to run for Congress, it’s why enacting voter ID, cleaning up our polls, and securing our elections is the number one core issue on my platform. I believe we will immediately start seeing change for the better in this country, once it’s the people making decisions…...

    Together with the Nevada GOP, Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Wednesday demanded the state investigate what she called a "shady" and potentially illegal "backroom deal" by local politicians that would alter voting procedures ahead of the state's all mail-in June 9 primary. In a letter to Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford, McDaniel and the state party charged that the Democratic-controlled Clark County Commission reached a secretive agreement with state Democrats that could have violated the state's open public meeting law. The RNC is specifically concerned that "Democrat Party bosses are now forcing Nevada’s largest county to waste...

    Former Vice President and the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is looking to expand the number of swing states in play in this November’s election, targeting Republican-leaning states in his bid to unseat President Donald Trump. Alongside traditional battleground states like Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, and New Hampshire – the former three of which Trump won in 2016 – the Biden presidential campaign believes it can bring traditionally reliable GOP states into play, like Texas, Georgia, and Arizona, which hold a combined 65 electoral votes, or nearly a quarter of the 270 needed to win the election.

    WINNEMUCCA, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — Mike and Carie Johnson of Winnemucca are demanding change after their 3-year-old daughter, Alyssa, died from a rattlesnake bite over the weekend. "In Humboldt County, we need a real hospital here, one that actually has good training," says Carie. The Johnson's were walking near their home on Saturday when Alyssa was bitten.

The family claims doctors said she didn't need anti-venom and was stabilizing. "They were not out," says Mike....

    Kara Eastman, a progressive backed by high-profile Democrats including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, captured victory Tuesday in a Nebraska Democratic congressional primary, boosting the hopes of liberal activists. The win by Eastman – who unsuccessfully sought the seat two years ago -- in the state's 2nd congressional district sets up a highly anticipated 2018 general election rematch with Republicans and serves as a rebound for progressive candidates in 2020 races. Eastman trounced her centrist primary opponent, Ann Ashford, securing more than 60 percent of the vote as she moves forward to November’s election. It...

    eave it to the National Rifle Association to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic for its own gain. But that’s what the NRA has been doing in recent months — fearmongering over the crisis to drive up gun sales and try to broaden its membership base. On social media and internet videos, the NRA paints a dystopian picture in which social order has spun apart and guns are the only means of assuring survival. Think “Mad Max” except with people fighting over food instead of fossil fuels. The organization also is propagating the usual tinfoil-hat claims about government takeovers, suspension of Second...

    Elon Musk announced that Tesla will move its headquarters and more from California to Texas and Nevada due to the local response to the coronavirus, which he believes is excessive. Over the last few weeks, Musk has been criticizing the shelter-in-place orders and restrictions related to the pandemic – going as far as calling them fascist. Things are now starting to ramp up from just talk to actions. As we reported earlier this week, Tesla attempted to reopen Fremont factory following comments from California’s Governor about starting to slowly reopen the state, but Alameda County, where the Fremont factory is...

    Elon Musk has announced that he plans to move the Tesla HQ to Texas and Nevada 'immediately' after a California county health official said that the plant could not reopen. The disgruntled CEO took to a comment thread on Twitter to share that he was also planning to file a lawsuit against Alameda County. 'Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately,' he said in the Saturday tweet. 'If we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependent on how Tesla is treated in the future. Tesla...

    CARSON CITY — Even as some elected officials and conservative groups push back against the state’s coronavirus shutdown, a majority of Nevadans give Gov. Steve Sisolak a passing grade for his management of the pandemic and support a measured approach for reopening the Silver State’s economy, a new statewide poll shows. The Nevada Poll™, conducted for the Review-Journal and by WPA Intelligence, found 64 percent of Nevadans support Sisolak’s approach to the pandemic and his handling of the shutdown of nonessential businesses across the state, compared with 28 percent who disapprove. The poll surveyed 500 likely voters in Nevada...

    Democratic Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar -- self-styled feminists who bought every flimsy claim made against now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh -- have chosen to stand by Joe Biden in the face of a sexual assault allegation made against him by a former staffer. The MeToo movement, which followed a New York Times' expose on Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's abuse and degradation of women in the entertainment industry, was supposed to prove that the feminist movement was a moral entity committed to fair treatment of women, even when big Democratic figures...
