  • Media more eager to defend MS-13 than NRA

    It’d be nice if the media defended the NRA as fiercely as they defend MS-13. Last week, President Donald Trump hosted a summit with California law enforcement officers to discuss the dangers of the state’s “sanctuary” policies. During Q&A, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims worried that the sanctuary law prevented her from telling federal officials if she had an MS-13 gang member in custody. “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are,” said Trump. “These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.” The...

    Dan Love .. led Operation Cerberus ... Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, wants to rein in the law enforcement authority of the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service and is crafting legislation he says will either restrict or abolish their authority. Lee said Monday he aims to hem in powers he says were never envisioned under the Federal Land Management Policy Act of 1976. "Our federal land management agencies have drifted far from their intended purposes.. The BLM has expanded its operations far from public lands." ... The senator added federal land agencies exercise police powers on private land...

Police and the FBI refused to answer questions from The Associated Press about the account.

    Police say seatbelts saved the lives of two people who crashed their $300,000 supercar in the Nevada desert, but the vehicle’s engineers deserve a fair share of the credit. The Nevada Highway Patrol found the totaled McLaren 720 about 70 yards off a road near Lake Mead last week, with damage suggesting that it had rolled at least once as it just missed falling down a ravine. The 710 horsepower coupé is one of the quickest cars in the world, and has a top speed of 212 mph. It features a carbon fiber passenger cell, similar to a racecar’s, that’s...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has undergone surgery for pancreatic cancer. The operation, first reported on Twitter by KLAS-TV journalist George Knapp and confirmed by a source close to the powerful former lawmaker, took place Monday morning. “They caught it early. The doctors believe it went well, and he is expected to make a full recovery,” the source told The Nevada Independent. Reid, 78, served for 30 years in the Senate before retiring following a debilitating eye injury. He was succeeded by Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto. Along with Republican former House Speaker John Boehner, Reid is co-chair of...

    Then-Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid released a letter in the heat of the 2016 election alleging Trump-Russia collusion even though the CIA director at the time urged him not to, according to a person familiar with their conversation. Mr. Reid’s Aug. 27 letter to the FBI appears to mark the first time a Democrat officially accused President’ Trump’s campaign of colluding with the Russian government to hack his party’s computers. The letter has come to represent for conservatives the “deep state” — Obama loyalists leaking unproven allegations to the press against Mr. Trump and his people to ruin the campaign,...

    Sen. Dean Heller is the only Republican running for re-election in a state Hillary Clinton won in 2016. (Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call file photo) Senate Democrats are still defending 10 states that President Donald Trump won in 2016, but six months out from Election Day, the most vulnerable senator remains a Republican. Nevada Sen. Dean Heller no longer faces a primary threat, but he’s the only Republican up for re-election in a state Hillary Clinton won, and in this national environment that’s a tricky place to be. The Democrats’ odds of flipping a few GOP-held open seats in Arizona and...

    Jace Trevon Ernst, 25, simply would not stop talking during a television show late Friday night, Las Vegas police say. It ended up costing him his life. When his roommate, Dymund Ellis, 19, told Ernst to shut up about 11 p.m., he replied, “Shut up, b----,” police said. Ellis armed herself with a kitchen knife, then told Ernst to call her a b---- again. He did. Ellis stabbed him once in the chest, police told KVVU. Ernst was later pronounced dead at a Las Vegas hospital. Police arrested Ellis on suspicion of murder with a deadly weapon. Ellis and Ernst...

    Daily resort fees and parking charges are rising and spreading in Las Vegas, adding as much as $45 a day to visitors' hotel bills. The publisher of Las Vegas Advisor blames the extra charges for a recent decline in the number of visitors. "Everyone hates resort fees, but the parking [fee] is even worse," said Anthony Curtis of Las Vegas Advisor. "Everyone wants some kind of comp, [and] the most basic comp is free parking. That was the one comp that everyone got." The Advisor, a decades-old, monthly newsletter highlighting what's new in Vegas and featuring deals for visitors, provides...

    Most politicians would do anything to avoid disparaging veterans. But Rep. Jacky Rosen, now running for the U.S. Senate, isn’t most politicians, and Sen. Dean Heller wants to make sure you know about it. Last Friday, Rosen and Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto attended a fundraiser hosted by Jane Fonda and other Hollywood elites. Yes, that’s the same Jane Fonda whom many Vietnam War veterans dubbed “Hanoi Jane” when she was photographed smiling while sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. The same Jane Fonda who said POWs claiming torture were “hypocrites and liars.” The same Jane Fonda who voiced North...

    A prominent environmental activist took the unusual road of not only blaming rising electricity costs squarely on renewable sources, but also for deriding the mainstream media for ignoring the connection. Michael Shellenberger, the president and founder of Environmental Progress, explained in a Forbes blog post Monday how the unreliability of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, is the main reason why electricity bills around the world have been getting higher. Despite renewable energy technology slowly becoming more affordable, Shellenberger notes, electricity costs are still rising because of the unpredictable nature of wind and solar. Both sources produce excess...

    It appears the Mueller investigation is winding down. The search for the rare Russian Collusion election birdie has turned up only a few lost Democratic canaries, chirping away in the ether. The only collusion was within the FBI, which desperately wanted to rid itself of a duly elected president, in favor of a woman some of them had prostituted themselves before for years and years. Those FBI canaries will now have their chance to sing. Both the House of Representatives and the FBI inspector general have requested criminal prosecution of those FBI personnel with a “higher loyalty” to Mrs. Clinton...

    If you want to empower women, stop talking about the mythical gender pay gap. ... It’s important to understand how the left is twisting numbers for political purposes, but it’s also vital to rebut the destructive message they’re sending. The subtext of Equal Pay Day is that women can’t. No matter how hard women work, no matter how smart they are, no matter their choices, women can’t earn as much as men. Try your hardest, sister, but your gender will keep you down.
