    The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported President Obama spoke at a Nevada State Democratic Party fundraiser for Catherine Cortez Masto, who is running for Harry Reid’s Senate seat in 2016. “The event was held at the Henderson home of Las Vegas Sun editor and publisher Brian Greenspun. 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? A routinely partisan one. Jon Ralston, just hailed by Chuck Todd on...

    LAS VEGAS — There are the people on his side on the Iran deal, President Barack Obama said Monday evening. 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...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid gave a forceful endorsement Sunday to the nuclear deal with Iran, a key boost that provides continued momentum for preventing Congress from blocking President Obama’s pact. The Nevada Democrat said the deal, which lifts economic sanctions against the rogue nation for pledges to limit its nuclear program, is the “best way” to curtail Iran’s military ambitions, and he pledged to round up more support to thwart its opponents. “I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure the deal stands,” he said in a telephone interview with The Washington Post from his...

    (CNSNews.com) - "The Planned Parenthood bill isn't going anywhere in the Senate," Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on Monday, shortly before an attempt to defund the organization fell seven votes short of advancing. "Senate Republicans are not being fair to American women," Reid said in a floor speech. "It's our responsibility in the Senate to assure that American women have access to care. It's our obligation to protect our wives, our sisters, our daughters, our granddaughters -- protect them from the absurd policies of a Republican Party that's lost its moral compass."

    Before he took over as majority leader, Mitch McConnell was a harsh critic of Harry Reid’s use of a parliamentary tactic to block amendments on the Senate floor. The Kentucky Republican said it was an abuse of the chamber’s rules that stifled debate in the famously deliberative body. But in his first seven months as Senate majority leader, McConnell has employed that same tactic to push through a highway bill, trade legislation and a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security. McConnell has used the maneuver more often than past Senate majority leaders — Robert Byrd, George Mitchell and...

Reid’s announcement that public “mass violence” does not happen in other advanced countries echoed a similar claim by Obama in which he referenced Charleston by claiming “that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.”

At what point do you bench the player who grounds out into a double play every time he comes to the plate? He [McConnell] has now decided to shut off all debate and join Democrats in blocking Senator Rubio’s (R-FL) amendment, which would have forced Iran to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

    A Las Vegas man told the Las Vegas Sun he concocted a story about Harry Reid getting beaten up by his brother to test right-wing media gullibility, which he claimed worked like a charm. Larry Pfeifer said he made up a story about Reid’s eye injury, which the senator incurred during an admittedly-bizarre exercise accident, after reading an unsubstantiated rumor in a conservative blog of Reid being beaten up by the mafia. Using a pseudonym, Pfeifer contacted the blogger John Hinderaker and spun a tale of a drunken fight between the Reid brothers, seemingly corroborated by Larry Reid’s DUI arrest...

Remember your Muad’Dib: “When I am weaker than you, I ask you for freedom because that is according to your principles; when I am stronger than you, I take away your freedom because that is according to my principles.”  - Ben Domenech, The Federalist  Ed Driscoll succinctly summarizes the emergence of the new liberal fascism in his recent post, and provides an example: REID: I don’t regret that at all. The Koch brothers — no one would help me. They...

    Have you seen it? The outgoing Senate minority leader Harry Reid, whose pitiful lie about being severely beaten in a vicious attack by an elastic exercise band continues largely unchallenged by our lugubrious mainstream media, said in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash that he had no regrets about another pitiful lie he told back in 2012. Asked whether he felt any regret for defaming then-Republican nominee Mitt Romney in 2012 by accusing him of tax evasion, in no less a venue than the floor of the U.S. Senate where he would be immune from suit, Reid’s answer was haughty...

    Harry Reid admitted this week what most honest and informed people already knew: he flat out lied in 2012 about Mitt Romney not paying his income taxes for ten years. Reid gave an ends justifies the means explanation to CNN's Dana Bash namely that, hey, it worked because Romney didn't win the presidential election. In 2012 a columnist in Reid's home state of Nevada, Jon Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun wrote a column critical of Reid's attack on Romney based on no facts. The problem was that his column was killed by his editor, Brian Greenspun.So three years later, now that...

    Harry Reid, D-Nev. has no regrets about his 2012 claims that then presidential candidate Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. The outgoing Senate Minority Leader even bragged to CNN that the comments, which had been described as McCarthyism, helped keep Romney from winning the election. "They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn't win did he?" Reid said ... when Reid directly accused Romney of being a tax dodge, he did so from the safety of the Senate floor. Outside the protection of legislative immunity, Romney was only possibly a tax dodge. Not only does Reid not...
  • Corruption Scandals Led to Harry Reid’s Abrupt “Retirement”

    You’d never know it from the mainstream media puff pieces of Harry Reid’s sudden retirement, but it was a long string of corruption scandals—including a recent one involving his attorney son—that drove the veteran Nevada senator to abruptly leave public office. For nearly a decade Judicial Watch has investigated and exposed Reid’s involvement in a multitude of transgressions and JW even warned the Senate Ethics Committee, but not surprisingly, no action was ever taken. On multiple occasions the Senate minority leader appeared on JW’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list for his role in a number of political scandals that...
  • So What Really Did Happen to Harry Reid? [It looks like someone actually beat him up...]

    It’s pretty obvious from the photographs that somebody beat the bejesus out of the soon-to-be-former senator from Nevada. And yet the national media has uncritically swallowed the cover story that “exercise equipment” was to blame for the loss of sight in the former majority leader’s right eye. Baloney. As far as I can tell, the piece of equipment allegedly behind the beatdown of Sen. Pat Geary has not been identified, but I can tell you from experience if the senator was using, say, a Soloflex machine this would be impossible: the weight straps simply come apart without any snapping...

    It has been three months since Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's exercise equipment "accident" and he remains blind in his injured eye. So when will Reid sue the exercise equipment company or even mention the brand name? So far nothing solid on this from Reid and the mainstream media continues to remain on incurious mode. This was particularly noticebable last week when Reid announced that he won't be seeking re-relection. Speculation again heated up on talk radio and in the blogosphere about this "accident" but from the MSM.....the sounds of silence. Among those taking note of the strange circumstances of Reid's...

    The younger brother of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid was arrested Monday afternoon after allegedly driving under the influence and punching a Nevada state trooper during a traffic stop. Larry Reid, 73, was found sitting inside a Lexus SUV that had been driving in the median of Highway 95 near Searchlight, Nev. shortly after noon. According to KVVU, the arrest report for Reid said that the trooper asked him why he was driving in the median. Reid responded with what was described as "incoherent, slurred speech."
