  • 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.
  • EDITORIAL: Sage-grouse politics

    07/10/2014 8:32:40 PM PDT · by george76 · 8 replies
    The fate of a chicken-size bird carries huge economic and political stakes across the West. The sage grouse, long a threat to the thriving energy sector, is also a threat to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The ground-dwelling bird, which has habitat across Nevada and 10 other states, could be listed as a threatened or endangered species as soon as next year. Such a designation would place burdensome restrictions on the use of tens of millions of acres by ranchers, farmers, and oil and natural gas producers. Environmental organizations that want a halt to ranching and fossil fuel development are...

    The Oregonian ^ | July 10, 2014 | Les Zaitz
    Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy kept more than his cattle when he and his armed militia supporters from Oregon and elsewhere recently backed down the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. BLM officials say he also kept $1 million he owes for grazing without permits. But that sum is unproven, and the agency's diligence in collecting any sum from Bundy is questionable. -- BLM officials, however, have repeatedly refused to document the basis for their $1.1 million claim and won't say a word about whether it's attempted to collect the debt. The agency's stature earned another black eye last week from the...

    Hillary Clinton’s hard choices are supposed to be behind her now that she’s promoting her new autobiography in an extensive cross-country tour. Instead, the former Secretary of State continues to get pummeled for her recent interview gaffes, including her defense of her six-figure speaking fees. Now, it seems Clinton has garnered some more critics: Angered over Clinton’s $225 thousand speaking fee, University of Nevada, Las Vegas students are protesting her upcoming appearance at the university. UNLV students claim that if Clinton receives six figures for her speech, then she could at least donate the paycheck. “You could give scholarships to...

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.

    Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James became “violently ill” during a ride with the storied Thunderbirds aerial acrobatic team this week. Commanders at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., thought it would be good PR to invite the relatively new secretary for a flight with its most famous squadron. Amid tight defense spending, there is pressure to demonstrate the worth of the Thunderbirds, which is back in the air show business after having been grounded last year when sequestration took hold. But Tuesday’s F-16 flight did not go as planned in the cockpit for Ms. James, a former House defense staffer,...

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...

Ammon Bundy, one of Cliven Bundy's sons, said by telephone that the Millers were at his father's ranch for a few days this spring before they were asked to leave by militia members for unspecified "conduct" problems. He called the couple "very radical" and said they "did not align themselves" with the beliefs of other protesters, who thwarted a roundup of Cliven Bundy's cattle by the...

Las Vegas, known for its sweltering summers, was sixth, with an increase of 3.4 degrees. But it's the boost in summertime heat that really makes Carson City stand out.

World War II and Air Force veteran Jim Sorentino lives alone with a caretaker. He’s 101-years-old, and he said in his lifetime, he has never experienced anything like this home invasion. He said it was around 5 a.m. on Sunday when two men kicked in a rear-garage door, and forced their way into Sorentino’s home in a gated community on Canvasback Drive.

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.'

    What we will expose in this article is indicative of Voter Fraud in all States and in National Elections. Is it illegals voting? No. Is it voter machine fraud? No. Both are very serious, and they do happen. The worst Voter Fraud is the politicians defrauding voters into thinking they are the opposite of what they really are. 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. Both of his ads claimed that he was an...

    After much apparent pleading from the contractor, Nevada made the decision to drop their individual ObamaCare website builder Xerox and is now the next state hitching its wagon to the federal online exchange. It all looked like it could have gone so well back in October, until users started trying to actually sign up for health insurance and began to uncover the more than 1,500 defects embedded in the site, according to a report from Deloitte last month, and the Silver State has finally realized that the situation cannot be salvaged any time soon — and certainly not in...

    WASHINGTON-- This week, U.S. Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) and U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (TX-32) and his colleagues filed an amicus brief and joined a court challenge to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, specifically challenging the legality of that law. The PPACA, which effectively originated as legislation in the Senate, raises revenue through the individual mandate, which violates the Constitutional clause that requires any bill which raises revenue to originate in the House of Representatives. “The President has changed the law six ways to Sunday in order to satisfy political donors, provide breaks to Big...

    Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy said in a lengthy written statement that he’s not going to sue the federal government after all, despite the number of lawyers he says have lined up to state his case against the Bureau of Land Management for free. At the same time, he wrapped his statement by saying that he’s “assembling a team of legal advisers” to help decide his family’s best course of action. The Bundy family has been at the center of a nationally watched armed standoff with the BLM over grazing fees. And some have said Mr. Bundy has a valid...

Below are his remarks as prepared for delivery: This morning marks 321 days since the Senate passed a bipartisan, commonsense immigration reform bill.

    WASHINGTON — Frustrated by the “sewer” of modern American political campaigns, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Wednesday said that he would bring a constitutional amendment to the floor granting Congress the ability to set strict new limits on campaign contributions, warning he will force multiple votes if necessary to pass the measure. “When I came to Congress, when you got money you had to list who you got it from, what their occupation was, address, and phone numbers if you had it. Then I saw things change. In 1998, [former Sen.] John Ensign and I ran against one another and...
