    The Trump administration is officially banning bump-fire stocks, senior Justice Department officials told CNN Tuesday. Under a new federal rule, those who possess the devices, commonly known as bump stocks, will get 90 days to turn them in from the date that the final rule is published in the federal register, which is likely Friday, the officials said. Bump stocks gained national attention last year after a gunman in Las Vegas rigged his weapons with the devices to fire on concertgoers, killing 58 people. President Donald Trump vowed to outlaw the devices soon after the tragedy, and some lawmakers on...
  • Utahn Melvin Dummar, who claimed to be a Howard Hughes heir, dies

    A Utah man who repeatedly made headlines around the world in the 1970s has died. Melvin Dummar was a gas station operator in Box Elder County in 1976 when he suddenly seemed to be on the verge of becoming a multi-millionaire. He was named an heir to the fortune of eccentric and secretive billionaire Howard Hughes. Dummar's name was contained in a handwritten will discovered in the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City. The document became known as the "Mormon Will" because someone had mysteriously dropped it on a desk at the...

    A Las Vegas man lost his vision, became partially paralyzed and has been unable to breathe without assistance since getting a flu shot last month.Shane Morgan and his wife Monique decided to get flu shots on November 2, believing it would help protect them and young family members ahead of the busy holiday season.But what they thought was a pro-active measure turned to horror when Shane began losing feeling in his arms and legs.“About 36-hours after he got the flu shot he started to get sick,” Monique explained to KSNV.“I never dreamed that any of this could ever happen,” Shane...
  • Nevada GOP Tragedy: Lessons for America

    12/02/2018 8:38:14 AM PST · by rktman · 52 replies ^ | 12/2/2018 | Wayne Allen Root
    The failures of the Nevada GOP are lessons for Republicans across the country. Avoid the same mistakes as the Nevada GOP, or all of America will turn blue. Nevada GOP candidates had no life, no energy, no personality. Not all of them, but most of them. They also failed to the do the basic work of campaigning. Many state Republican candidates are afraid to spend time with the voters or allergic to voters -- maybe they just don't like them very much -- or allergic to hard work. No candidate can win an election without campaigning day and night for...

    **money quote**How many more witnesses do we need to commit suicide by two bullets to the back of the head just before they about to testify against the Clintons before we start to say Hey, something here sure smells fishy?' Mike Tyson is currently testing out his one man live show in Las Vegas called Undisputed Truth 2 to small crowds, since Las Vegas is apparently pretty quiet right now. It doesnt have anything to do with Tyson, but all to do with that horrendous mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay earlier this year, which has seemingly gone through a...

    Open borders tour guides in Mexico illegally shepherding 1,500 Central Americans to the United States border declared victory this week. Mexican officials reportedly are offering humanitarian visas to avert a showdown. But the parade of immigration lawlessness marches on -- with reckless aiding and abetting by churches across the U.S. Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group in charge of the annual "migrant caravan," launched its effort during Holy Week by invoking the Stations of the Cross with biblical costumery and prop crosses. When they're not serving as human traffickers masquerading as human rights activists, these travel agents for amnesty busy themselves...

    Nevada Gov.-elect Steve Sisolak (D) is pushing to rename a Las Vegas airport after former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who is battling pancreatic cancer. Lawmakers in Nevada have been aiming to rename the McCarran International Airport after Reid, citing his prominence in the state's political history, as well as former Sen. Patrick McCarran's problematic legacy. McCarran was an avowed fascist and he has been accused of espousing racist and anti-Semitic ideals. Sisolak said during a meeting on Tuesday that he intends to name the McCarren International Airport after Reid, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. He also said...

    Associated Press ^ | November 18, 2018 | Michelle L. Price and Nicholas Riccardi
    Harry Reid may no longer lead Senate Democrats in Washington, but the political machine he built in Nevada has Republicans on the run. Democrats romped up and down the state in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, ousting Republican Sen. Dean Heller, winning races for governor and lieutenant governor, and expanding their state legislative majorities. The shellacking was 15 years in the making, the culmination of a long-term plan to shift a battleground into the Democratic column. Democrats elsewhere will work to replicate Nevada for years to come. Republicans were humbled. These things can change, but right now Nevada is a...

    Pimp Dennis Hof, the owner of half a dozen legal brothels in Nevada and star of the HBO adult reality series "Cathouse," won a Republican primary for the state Legislature on Tuesday, ousting a three-term lawmaker. Hof defeated hospital executive James Oscarson. He'll face Democrat Lesia Romanov in November, and will be the favored candidate in the Republican-leaning Assembly district. Hof celebrated his win at a party in Pahrump with Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss at his side. "It's all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me," Hof told the Associated Press in a phone call. "He found the...

    Hes 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 Trumps inspiration. Its all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me, Hof informed the Associated Press. He found the way and...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | August 10, 1994 | U.S. Senator Harry Reid
    The federal government has been grossly irresponsible in its neglect of mounting immigration problems, even as these problems place unbearable burdens on states like California. It is regrettable that states have reached a point where the only avenue they have for justice is the courts. It is even more regrettable that this Administration and this Congress stand by and allow the federal courts to decide the nation's immigration policies. Taxpayers simply cannot continue to sustain new populations the size of San Diego or the state of Nevada every year. California is sending up the red flag tat Washington should heed.Unprecedented...
  • Governor-elect Steve Sisolak wants to enforce Nevada's background check law

    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. Its easy to get a gun in Nevada. In this state, you dont need a background check to buy a gun from a private seller. Nevada voters and Nevadas 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 donors bribery trial goes full Vegas hooker route

    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...

    Theyve been nervous since day one. Since I declared my candidacy in April 2017, theyve 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 Hampshires 1st Congressional District said Saturday...Its 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...

    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.
