  • Governor-elect Steve Sisolak wants to enforce Nevada's background check law

    11/13/2018 4:48:20 PM PST · by BackRoads775 · 41 replies ^ | Saturday, November 10th 2018 | by Kelsey Thomas|
    LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The massacre in Thousand Oaks, California is renewing the debate on gun control along with a background check law passed by Nevada voters in 2016 that is still not being enforced. It’s easy to get a gun in Nevada. In this state, you don’t need a background check to buy a gun from a private seller. Nevada voters and Nevada’s governor-elect Steve Sisolak want that practice to end. “We're going to try to get background checks implemented as quickly as we possibly can ‘cause that's important to me. It's important to the citizens,” said Steve Sisolak.
  • Mayor de Blasio donor’s bribery trial goes full Vegas hooker route

    11/10/2018 4:48:49 PM PST · by Kaslin · 31 replies ^ | November 10, 2018 | JAZZ SHAW
    We’ve covered plenty of stories coming from the ongoing corruption trials of donors to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio, but the most recent one is turning into a highlight reel for Page Six. We previously noted how de Blasio had been subpoenaed to testify in the trial involving campaign finance violations and bribery with City Hall donor Jeremy Reichberg and NYPD Deputy Inspector James Grant. Many of the details of those charges were routine, boring allegations of political malfeasance. Promises were made, donations were solicited and “favors” were done.But not all of the...

    Currently, with about 75% of the precincts reporting, there seems to be a bit of a blue wave forming in Nevada. Sislak leads Laxalt by 6%, Wacky Jacky leads Heller by 7%, Lt. Gov. candidate Marshall leads Roberson by nearly 10%, AG candidate Ford leads Duncan, and so on.

    “They’ve been nervous since day one. Since I declared my candidacy in April 2017, they’ve been nervous. And it shows right now. Nancy Pelosi has spent well over half-a-million dollars in the last week to try and distort my campaign,” the Republican nominee in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District said Saturday...It’s one of the precious few Democrat-held seats Republicans have a chance at flipping, from blue to red. Those open races include battles for Minnesota's 8th District seat, held by a retiring Democratic incumbent; Minnesota's 1st, where incumbent Democrat Tim Walz is running for governor; and Nevada's 3rd, where incumbent...
  • Is It Legal for Trump to Use the Army at the Border? [the Posse Comitatus Act]

    American Thinker ^ | November 4, 2018 | Jonathon A. Moseley
    t is absurd to claim that our military cannot defend our borders. Yet "That is illegal!" shout internationalists who never wanted our U.S. border protected anyway. Activists proclaim that the U.S. military is crippled under an 1878 law, the Posse Comitatus Act, found at 18 U.S.C. § 1385. We can do nothing but watch helplessly, they argue, as foreigners flood across the frontiers. The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the use of the military for law enforcement purposes. There is actually a lot of scholarly analysis published by legal experts in law review journals. But most political rhetoric is...

    So looks like 48,000 turned out in Clark Co yesterday. Dems added about 9k to their Clark firewall which is now 47,000. Looks like statewide lead is going to be around 23,000. Not a total blowout by Dems, but Rosen is definitely in the drivers seat here. Heller will need a BIG Election Day turnout. And specifically he needs to carry his home County of Washoe. Dems currently lead there.

    Nevada sales tax is avg 6.85%. Medical items are exempt, except feminine hygiene products needed monthly (tampons and pads) by 49.5% of population in Nevada. This would make the items tax exempt saving women money every month.
  • Octogenarian Shot Dead With His Own Gun After Confronting a Burglar on His Patio

    11/01/2018 6:22:25 PM PDT · by Simon Green · 32 replies
    As John Boch recently discussed, it’s not a good idea to go outside to confront a suspicious person in your yard. Around 3:30 a.m. this past Monday morning in Las Vegas, an elderly homeowner in his eighties lost his life in a struggle with a stranger on his patio. That stranger was Sheldon Thomas, age 34. Based on reports, it appears that police were already searching for a prowler in the west Las Vegas neighborhood in response to a call: Someone had been breaking fences in an attempt to get into residents’ backyards. When officers arrived at one home, however,...

  • Democrat Harry Reid: Migrants – Not Americans – Are the ‘Lifeblood’ of America

    Migrants are the “lifeblood” of America, not Americans and their children, says former top Democrat Sen. Harry Reid. “Immigrants are the lifeblood of our nation,” Reid said, ignoring the 4 million Americans who turn 18 this year in a homeland with 260 million Americans, 34 million legal immigrants and at least 11 million illegal migrants. Migrants, he said, “are our power and our strength.” Reid made the claim as he tried to slam President Donald Trump’s call on Oct. for a reform of the birthright citizenship rules. Reid led the Senate Democrats until 2016. His elevation of migrants above Americans...

  • 4 observations from Nevada early voting data

    Las Vegas Review Journal ^ | Oct 25, 2018 | Victor Joecks
    If you don’t believe the polls, believe the early voting data. Nevada’s biggest races are going to be close. Here are four observations. 1. Neither side has pulled away. When they win, Nevada Democrats usually establish a large lead in the number of early voters. This can allow them to effectively bank enough votes to win before the polls close. Republicans historically make up ground on Election Day. In 2016, 27,000 more Democrats than Republicans had cast ballots by the end of the first week of early voting. Coincidentally, Hillary Clinton and Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto won their statewide races...

    Jacky Rosen supports unlimited abortion on demand. Incumbent Senator Dean Heller (R) is being challenged by radical pro-abortion Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (D) for Nevada’s U.S. Senate seat. The race is as tight as tight can get. Dean Heller, who is finishing his second term, opposes abortion on demand, and supports protection for unborn children. Dean Heller voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation to protect unborn children by prohibiting abortion at 20 weeks, when the unborn child can feel pain. Dean Heller opposes taxpayer funding for abortion and he voted against taxpayer funding of abortion providers. In contrast,...

    Eight towns would love to land the new Sierra Nevada Conservancy headquarters, projected to eventually have 70 employees and a $10 million budget. But only two showed up at the historic first meeting of the conservancy board Thursday in Sacramento, and both were from Nevada County. Nevada City used a laid-back approach in its pitch, but Truckee came on like a runaway snowboarder. Auburn, Colfax, Placerville, Amador City, Ione and Jackson were no-shows. “Give us your serious consideration,” said Truckee Mayor Craig Threshie in a lengthy speech that trumpeted the town’s location, history and commitment to the range. “We have...
