So don't you think for one minute that your prayers didn't count, because they did and they continue. I was just laughing with my sister...
  • AG can’t intervene on behalf of Gaming Control Board? Cortez Masto did

    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...

    A 6-month-old from Hawaii was mauled to death Monday by her family's pit bull. Layla Tsuda, who said she was with the girl, told KHON-TV that the baby was playing in a baby walker inside their home in northwest Las Vegas valley when she was attacked. Tsuda reportedly went to the bathroom and when she came back she found the dog mauling the girl. Tsuda was able to stop the attack, but the baby already suffered major injuries, according to KTNV. The child was rushed to the hospital where she died.

  • FBI Says No Need For Top Official To Recuse Himself From Trump-Russia Probe (McCabe)

    A top FBI official whose wife received political donations from an ally of Hillary Clinton’s last year does not need to recuse himself from the ongoing Trump-Russia investigation, the bureau said Wednesday. The Senate Judiciary Committee inquired last month about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s role on the Trump probe, which is looking into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley had expressed concerns about a potential conflict of interest given that McCabe’s wife ran a state campaign in Virginia that received $700,000 from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close friend of Clinton’s. [...

    Leopoldo Lopez has not seen a visitor for 37 days in his Venezuelan prison. Senator Marco Rubio said he was taken to a hospital in a very serious condition. There is concern about what the regime did to him. His wife has stood outside the prison seeking to be allowed in. In Nevada, Ammon Bundy was beaten and shackled earlier this week for a 13 hour period with guards threatening to leave him that way for 72 hours leaving Bundy fearing for his life. He sounded broken and hurt when he called his wife and activist Kelli Stewart afterwards. The...
  • 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...

    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...

    A 15-year-old boy charged in the gang rape of a 14-year-old special education student will be prosecuted in the adult justice system, a Clark County Family Court judge ruled Wednesday. The teen, Leby Urquilla, is one of four boys charged, and the only juvenile to be certified as an adult as of Wednesday. Two adults are also jailed in connection with the case: Jose Mejia-Henriquez, 18, and the boy’s father, Leby Alas-Gomez, 39. The victim, who has the mental capacity of a 7- or 8-year-old, told police she was sexually assaulted by at least six males on three separate occasions...

    Lawmakers faced off in a Wednesday hearing on proposed legislation to approve a nuclear waste storage facility in Yucca Mountain, Nevada. Many lawmakers at the hearing were concerned about the federal government defaulting on its legal obligations to dispose of used nuclear fuel. Even House Democrats acknowledged the sheer scale of this problem. “Courts have determined that DOE has breached contractual obligations under this statute,” New York Democrat Paul Tonko, ranking member of the subcommittee, said in the hearing. “DOE estimated that if it could begin to accept waste in the next 10 years, liabilities would total $29 billion dollars.”...

    LAS VEGAS –  Officials say one person is injured and a suspect is in custody after two separate fires were discovered at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas. The Clark County Fire Department released a statement saying toasters, towels and various other materials were used to ignite the fires at the hotel bearing President Donald Trump's name. One blaze was located in the women's restroom, on the pool deck level, and the other was in the hallway of the 17th floor. A county spokesman says a hotel security guard was injured.

    President Trump told the Washington Examiner that he is "absolutely" thinking about breaking up the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Trump criticized the heavily liberal court that blocked his executive order calling for a Mideast travel ban. He suggested it would likely uphold the injunction against his withholding of sanctuary cities' federal funds if the Justice Department appeals that ruling. Trump said that "many people" would support breaking up the "outrageous" bench, adding that he is "absolutely" considering the possibility.

    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...

    CARSON CITY — In her speech to the Nevada Legislature last week, Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., said violent protests on college campuses are responses to Donald Trump’s presidency and proposed budget. She also included violent protests in a list of ways people are “coming together” to oppose Trump. “It’s not just people from around the world who are concerned (about Trump’s budget proposal),” said Titus. “Here at home we see people coming together in ways that we haven’t witnessed in a long time. There are rallies. There are protests. There are neighborhood events. We’ve had a women’s march, a tax...

    In an apparent departure from his pro-life record, Sen. Dean Heller told a largely hostile crowd at a town hall even this week that he supports federal funding of Planned Parenthood. The Nevada Republican, who has spoken out and voted against forcing states to fund the nation’s leading abortion provider, faced several vocal activists questioning his stance. In response to one attendee’s question, Heller promised to “protect” Planned Parenthood.
