  • Trump Finds Hispanic Hysteria in Vegas

    Donald Trump was upstaged during a campaign rally Thursday by a Hispanic woman professing her undying support for the Republican presidential hopeful. The rare moment occurred roughly halfway through Trump's latest campaign rally in Las Vegas, Nev. when the leading GOP candidate began discussing a People magazine issue featuring himself and his family on the cover. A woman waving the magazine in the crowd was soon invited on stage by the billionaire. "There it is. Come here, let me have that," Trump summoned the woman, before leaving the stage to grab her from the sea of supporters. "Where are you...

    While other commodities are floundering or completely collapsing in this market, lithium—the critical mineral in the emerging battery gigafactory war—is poised to explode, and going forward Nevada is emerging as the front line in this pending American lithium boom. Most of the world’s lithium comes from Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Australia and China, but American resources being developed by new entrants into this market have set up the state of Nevada to become the key venue and proving ground for game-changing trade in this everyday mineral. Nevada is about to get a boost first from Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) upcoming battery gigafactory, and...

    Washington (AFP) - President Barack Obama's Democrats staved off a united Republican effort to sink the Iran nuclear deal Thursday, handing him a welcome foreign policy victory. As expected, US senators fell two votes shy of the 60 needed to advance a resolution disapproving of the international accord, meaning the legislation aimed at sabotaging the deal is essentially dead. "The Senate has spoken with a clarion voice and declared that the historic agreement to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon will stand," Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said after Democrats cleared the way for the accord.

    Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush touched on education, immigration, Iran and the economy during an hourlong town hall at a North Las Vegas community center tonight. But it wasn't until Jamie Hall got the microphone to ask the last question of the evening before the former Florida governor was forced to address a campaign issue that's been gaining momentum in recent weeks — racial inequality. "I wanted to ask you about racial injustice, racial inequalities, institutional racism," Hall said, referencing the growing Black Lives Matter movement. "Are you going to be talking to different police departments about training reform? You...

Even Tevye would blanch at this tradition that has long since served its purpose....

    President Obama says otherwise, but he seems to have a propensity for slapping the nuclear industry across the face. When the Obama administration came into power, one of its first actions was to end work on the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository in Nevada. In so doing, it delivered a shuddering blow to the U.S. nuclear industry, trashing the project when it was nearly ready to open. The cost to taxpayers was about $15 billion. Now the administration is going through the motions to suspend another costly nuclear waste investment when it is about 67 percent com
