    Earlier today I wrote about the tough map Democrats are facing in the Senate. One of the places where Democrats hope to unseat a Republican incumbent is in Nevada where Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen is challenging incumbent Sen. Dean Heller. One of the qualifications Rosen has repeatedly cited as part of her campaign for the seat is that she built a small business as a computer programmer which her campaign claims she ran between 1993 and 2002. But Monday, when everyone was focused on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported that there is little documentation from any...

    He’s got a resume that includes pimping, owning a brothel and starring in his own adult reality show — and he could be the next representative in the Nevada state legislature. Dennis Hof took the GOP primary Tuesday night, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported. Hof beat James Oscarson, a three-term incumbent, for the nomination. Hof, also known by a few as the author of “The Art of the Pimp,” says he owes his electoral triumph to President Donald Trump’s inspiration. “It’s all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me,” Hof informed the Associated Press. “He found the way and...
  • Wind And Solar Power Are Driving Up Electricity Prices, Expert Says

    A prominent environmental activist took the unusual road of not only blaming rising electricity costs squarely on renewable sources, but also for deriding the mainstream media for ignoring the connection. Michael Shellenberger, the president and founder of Environmental Progress, explained in a Forbes blog post Monday how the unreliability of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, is the main reason why electricity bills around the world have been getting higher. Despite renewable energy technology slowly becoming more affordable, Shellenberger notes, electricity costs are still rising because of the unpredictable nature of wind and solar. Both sources produce excess...

    It appears the Mueller investigation is winding down. The search for the rare Russian Collusion election birdie has turned up only a few lost Democratic canaries, chirping away in the ether. The only collusion was within the FBI, which desperately wanted to rid itself of a duly elected president, in favor of a woman some of them had prostituted themselves before for years and years. Those FBI canaries will now have their chance to sing. Both the House of Representatives and the FBI inspector general have requested criminal prosecution of those FBI personnel with a “higher loyalty” to Mrs. Clinton...

    The sun never set on the British Empire. It was the largest empire in world history. Out of nearly 200 countries in the world, only 22 were never controlled or invaded by Britain. In April of 1775, the British Royal Military Governor of Massachusetts, General Thomas Gage, sent 800 British Army Regulars, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, on a preemptive raid to seize guns from American patriots at Lexington and Concord. George Mason of Virginia stated: “To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” James Madison wrote (“Letters & Writings of...

    Autopsy results, as reported in the Las Vegas Review Journal, show the Mandalay Bay Shooter committed suicide with a shot to the roof of the mouth. From reviewjournal.com: The autopsy, which included toxicology tests and a brain examination, found that Paddock had anti-anxiety medication in his system. It also confirmed what authorities had previously said — that Paddock died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head after he opened fire at an outdoor concert from his 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay suite, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more.“It seems that based on the autopsy reports there were no physical excuses...

    Because Nevada is one of the states in which Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety campaigned relentlessly for universal background checks in 2016, it is important to note that such checks would have done absolutely nothing to prevent the October 1 Las Vegas attack. This is because Vegas attacker Stephen Paddock passed background checks for his guns. Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R) made this very point in the Las Vegas Review-Journal on October 21 when he wrote: Many, including U.S. Sen.Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., have said, no law could have stopped the attacker. It should be crystal clear to anybody...

    A group behind a ballot initiative that Nevada voters approved last year expanding gun background checks to unlicensed dealers is suing the governor and attorney general to try to make them enforce it. The measure mandating FBI background checks on private-party gun sales passed by less than 1 percentage point in November after Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed a similar measure in 2013. Attorney General Adam Laxalt has maintained that the new law can’t be enforced after the FBI informed the state in December it wants Nevada’s Department of Public Safety to conduct the checks itself in the same way...

    One of the puzzles about the mass murderer in Las Vegas is the source of his money. His brother characterizes him as "very wealthy" and that "$100,000 is no big deal". His real estate holdings holdings have been estimated as worth several millions of dollars. He paid cash for his latest real estate, and gambled up to a million dollars a year, according to a real estate agent who dealt with him. From the dailymail.co.uk: The 64-year-old, who opened fire slaughtering 58 people at a country music festival at the weekend, bought his 2,000 sq ft home in Mesquite,...

    It was a heroic private security guard who stopped the mass killing coming from the Mandalay Bay Hotel.In the timeline published yesterday, it was not clear if the security guard was accompanying the police, or ahead of them. Now we know. Undersheriff Kevin McMahill gave a briefing yesterday, 3 October, at 6 p.m. In the briefing, Undersheriff McMahill details when the shooting ended. No more shots were fired at people outside the hotel after 10:19 p.m.The information about the ending of the shooting is given between 3:17 and 5:30 on the video. McMahill releases these facts in remarkable agreement...

    I, and others have been puzzled by the time it took to enter the room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Room 135 was where the mass killer set up to attack the Route 91 Harvest Country Music attendees. The first calls to 911 happened at 10:08 p.m. local time. The police blasted down the door to Room 135 on the 32nd floor about 72 minutes later. But what happened in between those times? At what time did the mass murderer stop shooting at people below? Those times are becoming clear.  From cbslocal.com: DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Gunfire...

At least 50 people were killed and more than 400 people were injured Sunday night when a gunman, identified by authorities as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, opened fire from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino onto the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

    Pro-Donald J. Trump GOP U.S. Senate challenger Danny Tarkanian has blown past incumbent Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), an opponent of the president and much of his agenda, per a new poll out of the state of Nevada obtained exclusively by Breitbart News ahead of its public release. Tarkanian, per the new poll from JMC Analytics, is up at 39 percent in the new survey. His lead towers eight points over the incumbent Heller’s 31 percent, spelling certain trouble for Senate GOP establishment forces desperate to save Heller’s seat. A whopping 31 percent are undecided between Heller and Tarkanian. Even so,...

    Not only did Nevadans in all but one county (and most sheriffs) not support the Bloomberg measure, it was written so poorly the FBI said there was no way they could legally cooperate. So why is a police union representing members who took oaths to support the Constitution demanding enforcement?

    Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- The FBI has stated that it cannot and will not comply with the mandate prescribed by the “universal background check” referendum that was passed in November in Nevada.  The referendum was Ballot Question 1, a complicated eight page referendum that required private sales to be conducted through federally licensed dealers. From the Nevada Secretary of State archive.org: You can see that explicitly in subparagraph 3., the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, (NICS) is required to do the check, and *not* the Central Repository in Nevada, as is done according to Nevada law, currently. Nevada law allowed...

    Leading up to the November election, opponents of Question 1 — a measure to require background checks in Nevada for private gun sales or transfers — argued, among other things, that the initiative was poorly worded and would lead to a number of unintended consequences. Proponents of the measure — which passed with just 50.45 percent of the vote despite losing in every county except Clark — dismissed such concerns, arguing the measure was carefully crafted to avoid confusion. We now know who was correct. On Wednesday, the state attorney general said the law, set to become effective on Sunday,...

    I was at the Crossroads of the West gun show in Las Vegas when I learned about Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo's agitation for limits on firearm magazine sizes. Lombardo's statement to the Las Vegas Sun, "I’m a very avid hunter, I was in the military myself, and there’s no need to have a high-capacity magazine for any practical reason," is prima facie evidence that he is either (1) grossly unqualified for his job; or (2) willing to subordinate public safety to a political agenda that is far better suited to Los Angeles than any place in Nevada. Anybody with...

    The gun background check law knows as Question 1 just passed by 9,000 votes statewide. The ink isn’t even dry and Sheriff Lombardo has come out today supporting legislation to ban gun magazines with more than 10 rounds. As reported in the Las Vegas Sun today, Lombardo said “I’m a very avid hunter, I was in the military myself, and there’s no need to have a high-capacity magazine for any practical reason” Lombardo was the only sheriff in the state out of 17 to not oppose Question 1, the Bloomberg background check law.
