    The Hillary Clinton campaign made multiple payments to a company that specializes in hard drive and document destruction, campaign finance records show. The payments, which were recorded in February and March of 2016, went to the Nevada-based American Document Destruction, Inc., which claims expertise in destroying hard drives or "anything else that a hard drive can come from." "Our hard drive destruction procedures take place either at your site or at our secure facility in Sparks, NV," the companys website states. This decision is yours to decide based on cost and convenience to you. In either situation, the hard drive...

    A new gun control campaign is targeting Nevadans. A group founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, is pushing for new laws that would bar people on the terrorist watch list and the no-fly list from purchasing firearms. However, gun rights and civil rights groups continue to raise concerns about due process over those lists. The group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, said a majority of Nevadans would support a federal law prohibiting people on the FBIs terrorist watch list or the no-fly list from buying firearms, according to poll results released Tuesday.

    Nevadas chief federal judge Tuesday for the second time refused to let nationally known conservative lawyer Larry Klayman join Cliven Bundys defense team. ... The judges ruling will be legally challenged on an expedited basis, he said. It violates Cliven Bundys Sixth Amendment constitutional right to counsel and forces Cliven to forfeit his right to a speedy trial. The ruling demonstrates that the judge has an extra-judicial bias and prejudice against Cliven Bundy and his counsel, for which disqualification is required. The judge was recommended by (U.S. Sen.) Harry Reid and appointed by President Barack Obama, and the order wears...

This comes months after the US government revealed that a group of hackers, widely believed to be working for the Chinese government, had for...

The majority does not want Cruz and his establishment allies subverting the will of the people by way of delegates. The Colorado GOP tweeted this after the big steal.

He lost the battle on two fronts. Cruz picked up 28 pledged delegates in Colorado. In the other states, rival campaigns were able to place dozens of...

People are afraid were trying to take away guns, which is not the case, Rosston said. I understand the sensitivity of it, but Ive got to ask the questions when we have kids who shoot themselves.

    Morse Arberry Jr. never made good on the $121,545 he promised to pay back in 2011 after illegally funneling campaign contributions from a Nevada Assembly run into his personal bank account. The North Las Vegas Democrat struck a deal in October 2011, pleading to a misdemeanor charge of fraudulent appropriation of property. In exchange, six felony charges were dropped and he avoided jail. As part of the deal, Arberry agreed to pay the state the same amount as restitution, plus a $1,000 fine. The disgraced former assemblyman is again running for public office. Last week he filed as a candidate...

    There is good news and bad from the states on school choice, as compiled by the Heartland Institute in its School Reform News.

In December 2015, Wayzeta Public School District (WPSD) officials notified the family of their alleged failure to file a 'mandatory' notice of intent paperwork. WPSD included in the notification a warning that it planned to file charges with local law enforcement and...

    Updated, 7:33 a.m. | LAS VEGAS — In his final rally on Monday before the Nevada caucuses, Donald J. Trump said he wanted to punch a protester, who had been ejected from the event, in the face. On the eve of what could be Mr. Trump’s third consecutive victory among a fractured Republican presidential field, the protester — the third one to interrupt him at the event and who Mr. Trump said had thrown punches at security guards — really drew the candidate’s ire. As the man was being escorted away, Mr. Trump repeatedly told the crowd that he wished...

Trump also claimed the protester was "nasty as hell" and accused the man of trying to punch the security officers forcing him out of the rally, though the man did not appear to be fighting off those officers. "In the old days," Trump added, protesters...

    Its not that last nights contests in Idaho, Hawaii, Michigan and Mississsippi doomed Marco Rubios campaign; its that the four bad performances atop Rubios previous disappointments New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, and just about everywhere else not called Minnesota and Puerto Rico have now created what feels like an insurmountable perception of defeat. Three Rubio-friendly conservative writers Jen Rubin of the Washington Post, Dan McLaughlin of Red State, and Guy Benson of Townhall.com contend its time for Rubio to quit the race and endorse Ted Cruz. Jen and Dan urge Rubio to strike the deal now...

    From Michigan to Louisiana to California on Friday, rank-and-file Republicans expressed mystification, dismissal and contempt regarding the instructions that their party's most high-profile leaders were urgently handing down to them: Reject and defeat Donald J.

In interviews, even lifelong Republicans who cast a ballot for Mr....
