    .....SATURDAY MAY 27th John Lamb, one of the protest organizers, announced yesterday that the protest will continue next week instead of breaking off Monday as had been previously planned. Lamb said the protest has been an encouragement to the prisoners. The 19 associated with the Bunkerville Standoff have been helped and others in the prison as well by the protestors outside and their willingness to go into the prison and visit with those held there. At last night's public meeting, activist and organizer Kelli Stewart explained her involvement with the cause of the prisoners that began during the Oregon Standoff...

FRIDAY MAY 12th-SATURDAY MAY 13th The Nye County Sheriff has actually looked at the May 2nd torture video of Ammon Bundy and conducted an 'investigation'. On Thursday May 11th she met some family members and showed them the lengthy video of his mistreatment. Ammon's mother Carol Bundy was said to have been so disturbed by the video she left the room. Sister-in-law Angie Bundy says "Ammon was treated worse than an animal" in a Facebook posting. The Nye County Sheriff claimed that Ammon Bundy...

    Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | May 11, 2017 | Victor Joecks
    There’s nothing unprecedented about a Nevada attorney general intervening on behalf of the Gaming Control Board in litigation between private parties, even when one of the parties is a licensee. You wouldn’t know that from legislative Democrats’ hyperventilating over an affidavit from Gaming Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett. As reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Sean Whaley, Burnett admitted to secretly recording a 2016 conversation with Attorney General Adam Laxalt. They talked about whether the board should file an amicus brief defending the confidential nature of licensee records submitted to state gaming regulators. Burnett stated he was “shocked and in...

    Ah Washington Post, you've done it again. Here you have a legitimate, under-reported story, and you manage to find a way to drop in some good old fashioned radical left wing bias. From your 6/21 edition: The No. 1 trending question related to Donald Trump on Google right now is "Who tried to shoot Trump?" Which means a lot of people don't know the answer. Which is probably because the assassination attempt on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee hasn't been covered as a major news story. The answer, authorities say, is Michael Steven Sandford, a 20-year-old British citizen who...
  • Gun background checks: Over half-million Nevada voters will not be ignored by Laxalt (barf alert)

    Las Vegas Sun ^ | 04 may 2017
    Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt has insisted that his opposition to last November’s ballot question calling for expanded background checks on firearms purchases was based not on the Second Amendment but rather on his opinion that the measure was legally flawed. But unless you were born with an extra gullibility gene or two, you had to wonder whether Laxalt was actually motivated by politics instead of the law. A conservative Republican who has all but announced he’ll run for governor in 2018, Laxalt has had plenty to gain among the NRA crowd and other deep-red voters by trying to torpedo...
  • Nevadans for Background Checks shifting blame for its $20M mistake

    Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | May 2, 2017 | Victor Joecks
    It’s much easier to look for a scapegoat than admit you made a $20 million mistake. That’s what Nevadans for Background Checks tried to do during a Friday news conference that called on Attorney General Adam Laxalt to enforce its background-check initiative. Last fall’s Question 1 ballot initiative mandated background checks for private-party gun sales and transfers. The initiative writers could have required that Nevada perform the background checks for those transactions. Instead, they required licensed dealers to do them through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System. “The reason it was written saying that NICS was going to...

    A newly-released arrest report details the circumstances that surround a burglary suspect following multiple small fires at Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas.

According to Clark County Fire Department Arson Investigators, the suspect, identified as Fraley, placed paper products and towels inside two toasters in an apparent attempt to start a fire in the women's bathroom on the pool deck.....

    There was word late last evening that Ammon and Ryan Bundy have been moved from solitary confinement at the Southern Nevada Detention Center in Pahrump. The Bundy Brothers were put in the hole for refusing to comply with frequent body cavity searches conducted under prison rules. A few days ago Ryan Bundy filed a lawsuit in connection with his punishment at the prison. Ammon and Ryan Bundy are in prison awaiting trial later this year in connection with the April 2014 Bunkerville Standoff near Bundy Ranch. Activist Gavin Seim posted a video on his Facebook page reporting the release of...

    Ryan Bundy, a son of embattled rancher Cliven Bundy who is incarcerated pending trial on conspiracy charges, has sued the federal government. In a lawsuit filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for Nevada in Las Vegas, Bundy challenges the constitutionality of prison policies and alleges deprivation of rights after he was punished for refusing to obey those orders. Bundy was transferred to prison in Nevada last fall after he was acquitted of conspiring to stage an armed takeover of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon. He is scheduled to stand trial later this year on separate federal conspiracy charges...

    A federal jury's failure to reach a unanimous verdict on 50 of the 60 counts in the first Bunkerville standoff case--and the mistrial that resulted--has spurred a flurry of concerns about speedy-trial rights among others accused of conspiring with rancher Cliven Bundy. Eleven people still await trial on charges that they organized a mass assault on federal agents who tried to seize Bundy's cattle from public land in April 2014. The first trial ended Monday when U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial and set a new trial date of June 26. Jurors convicted two of the first six...

    A federal judge declared a mistrial Monday in the first Bunkerville standoff case, which targeted six men accused of conspiring with rancher Cliven Bundy..... The mistrial--an anticlimactic end to a highly anticipated trial--was declared hours after the jury convicted two men of some of the ten counts in the superseding indictment. In returning the guilty verdicts, which still stand jurors informed the court they were "hopelessly deadlocked" on the remaining counts and defendants. U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro sent them back to the deliberation room in a last-ditch effort to encourage them to reach a more complete verdict. "The court...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities arrested the man suspected in the seemingly random Las Vegas knife attacks that left one man dead and another bleeding in an alley, police said. Richi Briones, 32, was taken into custody at a bus stop Wednesday night, police said in a news release. Briones' car was found abandoned about 20 miles (32 kilometers) away. A man escaped without injury in the first attack at about 9:30 a.m. east of downtown Las Vegas, police said....

    CARSON CITY — There’s one thing everyone can agree on: It’s nice to get paid. The problem for lawmakers is that voting yourself a pay raise is a good way to end your political career. The mailer writes itself. Nevada legislators, though, are considering an ingenious — or devious — solution to raise their salaries. Assembly Joint Resolution 10* is a proposed constitutional amendment passed by the Legislature in 2015. Nevada’s constitution requires the Legislature to pass constitutional amendments in two consecutive sessions before sending it to voters in the next general election. Setting salaries of elected officials “unfortunately politicizes...

    The jurors in the first Bunkerville Standoff trial will be back at the federal courthouse in Las Vegas today for a fifth day of deliberations. Hopes are rising that some or all of the six defendants may be, just may be acquitted of some or all charges. No video reports just a few tweets on the trial, so I posted this vanity update for those interested. But other developments from Las Vegas yesterday on the second Bunkerville Standoff trial with U.S. District Judge Gloria approving June 26th as the trial date for Cliven Bundy, his sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy...
