    Video at link. The liberal group American Bridge 21st Century announced Wednesday night that it had fired one of its operatives a day after he was arrested and accused of battery against the female campaign manager for Nevada GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt. In a statement, American Bridge said that Mike Stark had been relieved of his duties "effective immediately." American Bridge was founded in November 2010 by David Brock, who also founded liberal watchdog group Media Matters. The group’s largest donor is liberal billionaire George Soros, who contributed more than $2 million between 2015 and 2016. Soros is still...

    The NBC/Marist Poll released figures for the statewide Senate and Governor's races in Nevada this week with Republican Adam Laxalt leading 46-45 in a 'head to head' contest with Democrat Steve Sisolak for Governor. But there are other candidates in the race like Libertarian Jared Lord and Independent Ryan Bundy. NBC/Marist did create a three way set-up and there Laxalt gets a wider lead over Sisolak 44 to 40 percent with Jared Lord at eight percent. But again no Ryan Bundy listed in the poll. They put other categories in with the three candidates with "None of these candidates" getting...

    AFTER A 50-YEAR siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism — perhaps for decades. The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in last Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court as the new justice took his oath, confirm it. The Democratic Party has sustained a historic defeat. And the triumph is President Trump’s. To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high...

    The Hill ^ | October 9, 2018
    Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) holds a slim but statistically insignificant lead over Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) in the Nevada Senate race with a month left until Election Day, a poll released Tuesday found. An NBC News/Marist poll shows Heller leading 46-44 percent among likely voters. The difference falls within the poll's margin of error of 5.5 points. Heller is considered one of the most vulnerable Republican senators up for reelection next month. The poll found that independents favor Heller, 42-39 percent. The incumbent is also the preferred candidate among likely male voters by a 16-point margin. Rosen holds an 11-point...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are going on tour. The Clintons announced on Monday that they would headline a series of live events together -- billed "An Evening with The Clintons" -- across the country in the final weeks of 2018 and into 2019. The tour will provide the Democratic stalwarts with a notable platform weeks after the consequential 2018 midterm elections and deep into 2019, when a number of Democrats will be jockeying for positions in the fight to be the party's standard bearer against President Donald Trump in 2020. The events, which are being produced by tour promoter Live...

Ammon Bundy responds to HR 6687 approved unanimously by the House giving long term contracts for cattle ranchers at Point Reyes, California Democrat Congressman Jared Huffman nof northern California was pushing legislation and got it successfully passed for 20-year grazing leases for ranchers in the Point Reyes area.

    LAS VEGAS - Charges were dropped in court Monday against four dentists who were accused of rape against a woman at a Las Vegas hotel in July, KSNV reported. Ali Badkoobehi and brothers Poria Edalat, Saman Edalat and Sina Edalat had been charged with sex assault, conspiracy to commit sex assault and first-degree kidnapping, the television station reported. However, prosecutors dropped charges during a hearing that lasted about 30 seconds Monday, the Las Vegas Journal-Review reported. “After review of the facts of the case, it was clear that the allegations were completely fabricated,” lawyers for the men wrote in a...
  • Poll: GOP Candidate Takes Lead in Key Arizona House District Critical to Majority

    10/02/2018 8:53:54 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 26 replies
    Wendy Rogers, the GOP nominee for Congress in Arizona’s first congressional district, has taken a slight lead over Democratic incumbent Rep. Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ) in a key district that could decide the fate of the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. This district is one of just a handful nationwide where Republicans have an opportunity to flip a seat currently represented by a Democrat back into GOP hands. A couple other such seats exist in Minnesota and one more is in Nevada, but there are hardly any pickup opportunities for Republicans when it comes to defending their House majority....

    Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed as "fake news" accusations by a US woman who alleges she was raped by the Portuguese footballer in 2009. In an Instagram video, Ronaldo said: "They want to promote [themselves] by [using] my name. It's normal." Ronaldo's lawyers say they will sue Germany's Der Spiegel magazine, which originally reported the allegations. The magazine wrote that Kathryn Mayorga had claimed Ronaldo, 33, raped her in a hotel room in Las Vegas. Ms Mayorga, 34, is reported to have filed a rape report with Las Vegas police shortly after the alleged incident. In 2010, she reportedly reached an...

    A 527 political organization funded primarily by a trio of liberal mega-donors - Tom Steyer, George Soros, and S. Donald Sussman - is attempting to impact local and state-level political campaigns by donating to committees funded primarily by leftwing pressure groups. The Washington Free Beacon previously reported that the group, State Victory Action, donated $500,000 to an independent expenditure committee in Colorado in support of the Democratic gubernatorial nominee. However, a state-by-state review of other records shows SVA is also active in Minnesota, Maine, New Mexico, and Nevada, totaling about $1.7 million in disclosed funding thus far in state campaign...

    This new Los Angeles Rams stadium better be good. We know it will be expensive, to a record level. Sports Business Journal reported that costs for the new stadium in Inglewood have passed $4 billion. You read that right. Stadium costs have gone way up through the years, but no other stadium in the United States has come anywhere close to this. SBJ said the most expensive stadium previous to this was MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, and that cost $1.7 billion. The Raiders’ new stadium in Las Vegas is expected to cost more than $2 billion. That’s still less...
