    LAS VEGAS, Nevada — A group of protesters — at least one of whom was wearing a swastika T-shirt — interrupted President Donald Trump’s address to the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) on Saturday before being ejected by security. The demonstrators clambered on top of their seats in the ballroom at the Sands Expo and began chanting slogans against the Israeli “occupation” of the West Bank. (Israel considers the area, which Jews calls Judea and Samaria, to be “disputed,” not “occupied.”) At least one of the protesters, who happened to stand up a few rows in front of this reporter, was...

    President Trump elicited cheers Saturday at a Republican Jewish Coalition conference for recognizing Israel’s claim to the Golan Heights and moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. The president also played to the crowd by mentioning the name of Muslim Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, which drew loud boos from the audience in Las Vegas, Nevada. “Special thanks to Representative Omar of Minnesota,” the president said tongue-in-cheek. As the booing cascaded in the venue, Mr. Trump added, “Oh, I forgot. She doesn’t like Israel. I forgot. I’m so sorry.” Mr. Trump told the crowd that Republicans are taking a stronger stand than...

    A new ethical firestorm is engulfing Mayor de Blasio as questions are being raised about where he’s getting all the money to fund his cross-country presidential campaign trips. It’s deja vu all over again for “On The Road Bill,” the mail-it-in mayor of New York City who has been galloping all over the country to test the presidential waters with a suspicious campaign cash box that’s raising lots of eyebrows. “To me, that’s a real no-no,” Betsy Gotbaum of the Citizens Union said. Gotbaum is questioning how de Blasio is raising money for his “Fairness PAC” – the political action...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — A jury in Las Vegas flatly rejected former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid’s lawsuit against an exercise band maker he blamed for injuries — including blindness in one eye — he suffered when the stretchy device slipped from his grasp and he fell face-first a little more than four years ago. After eight days of testimony, the eight-member civil trial jury deliberated about an hour before declaring that Reid never proved the first of 10 questions they were asked to decide: that the device Reid used that day was a TheraBand made by Ohio-based Hygenic Corp.

    Two additional women came forward Tuesday to say former Vice President Joe Biden touched them in ways that made them uncomfortable. The women, Caitlyn Caruso and D. J. Hill, each recounted their experiences to The New York Times. Caruso, 22, told the Times that Biden rested his hand on her thigh even as she attempted to show her discomfort by squirming in her seat during a sexual assault event at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. Caruso, who was 19 at the time, added that Biden hugged her "just a little bit too long."

    by Sheri Urban Just when Joe Biden's #MeToo political nightmare was already dogging his imminent announcement to run for president -- it just DOUBLED in size. Two more women have come forward to accuse the former Vice President of touching them in a way that made them feel uncomfortable as Biden's touching scandal continues to grow. And he didn't "just" smell a woman's hair this time, as The View harpies tried to justify today.

    A Connecticut woman says Joe Biden touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich when he was vice president, drawing further scrutiny to the Democrat and his history of unwanted contact with women as he ponders a presidential run “It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head," Amy Lappos told The Courant Monday. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.” Lappos posted about the...

    In the wake of Lucy Flores' accusation of inappropriate touching by Joe Biden, Morning Joe has wrapped Biden in a warm embrace, metaphorically nuzzling his neck and planting a big warm kiss on the top of his head. On Monday's show, Joe Scarborough and former Hillary campaign aide Adrienne Elrod rose first to support good old Uncle Joe. Then came Mika Brzezinski with a more explicit defense of Biden's creepy behavior. Yes, Brzezinski acknowledged, Biden is "extremely affectionate and flirtatious." But it's in a "completely safe way." She suggested that Flores had misconstrued Biden's behavior, and ended by claiming that...

    The spokesman for former Vice President Joe Biden has branded stories about his behavior as “smears and forgeries” in a combative new statement Monday, the third attempt in four days to respond to swirling allegations about his habit of touching women. “These smears and forgeries have existed in the dark recesses of the internet for a while. And to this day, right wing trolls and others continue to exploit them for their own gain,” said Bill Russo, spokesman for Biden, who is contemplating a 2020 presidential bid. Former Nevada state assemblywoman Lucy Flores accused Biden on Friday of touching her...

    Former Nevada Democrat state Sen. Lucy Flores accused former Vice President Joe Biden of sexual misconduct in a piece she wrote about a 2014 encounter she had with him that left her "mortified," saying she had "never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before." Flores, a former member of Bernie Sanders’ political group Our Revolution, says that the incident happened as she was about to go on for a rally just days before the upcoming elections were held. "Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of...

    Las Vegas Police say they've arrested a 25-year-old Playboy model in connection with the death of a 71-year-old doctor whose body was discovered inside the trunk of an abandoned car earlier this month. Kelsey Nichole Turner, 25, was arrested in Stockton, California on March 21 by detectives from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and members of a Stockton FBI task force, a press release from the department said. Detectives identified Turner as a suspect after an investigation revealed evidence that connected her to the death of Thomas Burchard, a 71-year-old child psychiatrist from Salinas, California.

    Presidential hopeful Kamala Harris recently supported legalizing prostitution in an interview she gave to the Root: “But when you are talking about consenting adults, I think that you know, yes, we should really consider that we can’t criminalize consensual behavior as long as no one is being harmed,” she said, meaning that she would still support laws that would punish human trafficking and exploitation of women. Surprisingly—or not—this idea has also been embraced by certain segments on the right, especially among libertarians. Elizabeth Nolan Brown, an associate editor at Reason Magazine and an advocate of the sex trade, said Harris...
  • Nevada, New York consider using 'textalyzer' in distracted driving accident investigations

    Most states ban texting behind the wheel, but a legislative proposal could make Nevada one of the first states to allow police to use a contentious technology to find out if a person was using a cellphone during a car crash. The measure is igniting privacy concerns and has led lawmakers to question the practicality of the technology, even while acknowledging the threat of distracted driving. The future of the Nevada proposal isn't clear. A similar measure introduced in 2017 failed in the New York Legislature, but lawmakers are considering it again.Law enforcement officials argue that distracted driving is underreported...

    "Enough is enough!" "This can't go on!" "This has to stop!" These were among the comments that came through the blizzard of commentary after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County. We have heard these words before. Unfortunately, such atrocities are not going to stop. For the ingredients that produce such slaughters are present and abundant in American society. And what can stop a man full of hate, who has ceased to care about his life and is willing to end it, from getting a weapon in a country of 300 million guns and killing as...

Kirsten Gillibrand officially entered the ever-growing pool of Democratic presidential hopefuls Sunday, ending the two-month-long exploratory phase of her campaign saying she’s running for the White House to make “big, bold, brave choices.” “Our anthem asks a question, forcing every generation to make a choice,” Gillibrand says in a video released Sunday morning. “Will brave win? Let’s answer for ours." **SNIP** After Sunday’s video announcement, Gillibrand heads to Michigan on Monday for an MSNBC town hall with Chris Hayes; to Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday; and to Nevada on Thursday.

    A warning from the Southern Nevada Health District about the second confirmed case of the measles in the valley since December. This time, it was an international traveler who may have exposed people at Treasure Island. “Anytime you have a lot of people condensed in one area, it’s concerning,” said Dr. Cole Sondrup with Southern Hills Hospital. Experts say measles is one of the most-infectious diseases out there. About 90 percent of unvaccinated people will contract the virus if exposed. “Luckily, in Nevada, we have very high rates of immunization, so there’s herd immunity. So even when we get an...

    Are rich people fleeing California to escape astronomical state income taxes? That’s the word. But it’s fake news. In fact, more wealthy people are moving to California than leaving, research indicates. It’s the poor and middle class who are departing. It makes sense. If you’re getting rich in California and can afford to live comfortably here in this balmy climate, there’s little incentive to leave — except to stick it to the tax collector in Sacramento. “If you’ve got your business here and you’re making money, it’s hard to leave,” says Allan Zaremberg, president of the California Chamber of Commerce....
