    LAS VEGAS (AP) - A federal jury in Las Vegas has refused to convict four accused gunmen in a 2014 standoff with federal authorities near the Nevada ranch of anti-government figure Cliven Bundy. In a verdict that stunned Bundy supporters, the jury on Tuesday acquitted Ricky Lovelien and Steven Stewart of all 10 charges against them. Defendants Scott Drexler and Eric Parker were found not guilty of most of the charges against them. The jury did not reach verdicts on four charges against Parker and two charges against Drexler. Prosecutors said the men conspired with Bundy family members and wielded...

    (Carol Bundy at :14) ...Those people saved our lives that day against the heavy handedness of our federal government. Now today 19 innocent men sit in prison because they stood for truth and righteousness and our Constitutional rights. They have been denied any and all of those precious rights. You are all witnesses to a judge and prosecuting attorneys who have no bounds and do not honor their oath of office, have total disregard for the US Constitution. There is no justice to be found in that courtroom. President Trump, you remain silent. Mr. Jeff Sessions, you said you were...

  • Danny Tarkanian Accepts Shepard Smith Challenge: “I will go on your show and defend the President”

    “Our booking team, and they’re good, reached out to Republicans of all stripes across the country today. Let’s be honest. Republicans often don’t really mind coming on Fox News Channel. We couldn’t get anyone to come and defend him here because we thought, in balance, someone should do that. We worked very hard at it throughout the day, and we were unsuccessful.” One Republican that apparently hadn’t been reached out to, is Danny Tarkanian, running for U.S. Senate against Dean Heller in Nevada. He accepted Shepard Smith’s challenge today on social media. He tweeted: Hey @ShepNewsTeam bookers didn’t contact me...
  • reasons Tarkanian can beat Heller (NV)

    08/18/2017 4:11:48 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 10 replies ^ | 8/17/17 | Victor Joecks
    Recent history says Danny Tarkanian is wasting his time challenging Sen. Dean Heller in next year’s Republican primary. From 2012 to 2016, only one sitting U.S. senator lost a primary challenge: a then-80-year-old Richard Lugar, R-Ind., in 2012. That’s a tough place to start from, but past trends ignore the unique problems Heller faces in his re-election bid. Here are four reasons Tarkanian can best Heller and advance to the general election. 1. Heller voted against repealing Obamacare. For six years, being a Republican meant vigorously opposing Obamacare. Heller voted to repeal it in 2015. But when Heller had a...

    Nevada State Senator Tick Segeblom is renewing his push to rename McCarran International Airport. Segerblom has introduced legislation in the past to change the name, but it didn't pass. The airport was named for former Nevada Senator Patrick McCarran, who served from 1933 to 1954 and was one of the most powerful men in Washington. But, he also had a history of of racism and anti-semitism. Segerblom says "This city is now majority minority city, we are very proud of our ethnic background. People come here from all over the world, and to think that they come into an airport...

    A 62-year-old man was arrested for threatening Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) over the GOP effort to repeal and replace Obamacare in a note that read, “ If I’m going to die….I will take you with me,” police said. Richard Holley, who was arrested in Clark County, Nev., on Monday, faces charges of extortion, burglary and intimidating a public officer, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. An alarm at Heller’s office went off on July 16, and police arrived at the scene to find a note at the door, which read, “Sen. Heller, I am sick and will die...

    Nearly nine months after the conclusion of the 2016 general election and despite months of hesitation, Republican Sen. Dean Heller has finally confirmed that he voted for Donald Trump for president. In a short statement released to The Nevada Independent, Heller — who is up for reelection in 2018 and is being challenged in a primary by businessman Danny Tarkanian — confirmed that he indeed voted for the Republican nominee during the 2016 election after more than a year of vocal criticism toward the party’s nominee. “Yes, I voted for Donald Trump,” he said in a statement texted to a...

    A federal judge in Las Vegas cut short the testimony of an Idaho gun enthusiast in the middle of his Bunkerville standoff retrial Thursday. Eric Parker was photographed in April 2014 pointing a long gun through a barrier on an Interstate 15 overpass that overlooked a sandy ditch where protesters had gathered to face Bureau of Land Management agents. Prosecutors first objected to Parker’s testimony about 20 minutes after he took the stand and uttered the words “First Amendment.” Before the start of the second trial for Parker, a married father of two, and three other men, U.S. District Judge...

    Nevada Sen. Dean Heller is testing the political perils of opposing President Trump from inside his own party, with the entrance into the 2018 Republican primary Tuesday of Danny Tarkanian. Tarkanian, a five-time failed candidate for public office, is wrapping himself in the mantle of Trump, vowing to be an enthusiastic, loyal soldier for the president in the Senate, where Heller tends to vote with the White House, though not blindly and at times reluctantly. "I am a conservative Republican who supports the policies of President Trump to repeal Obamacare and end illegal immigration," Tarkanian said in a statement. "I...
