    Steve Sisolak, the leftist governor of Nevada, decided to play doctor by banning the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, two drugs that are being used elsewhere to treat COVID-19.  "While these drugs serve necessary medical purposes, this regulation protects the Nevadans who need them and prevents unnecessary hoarding," Sisolak wrote on Twitter. Unneccessary hoarding? The hoarding thing is a smokescreen, his real reason was to slap at President Trump who touted these medications as showing promise, and even mistakenly said they had been approved for use by the FDA. That's his real reason for the limit on the unproven drug, which goes against the...

Azzam testified that while he has no background in anesthesia or pain management, he says the doses of three drugs...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Monday announced he was endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden in his bid for the White House. Reid lauded Biden as the candidate best fit to assemble the largest coalition to defeat President Trump and lead our country following the trauma of Trumps presidency. Joe Bidens strength of character and deep experience stand in the starkest contrast to Trumps amorality, corruption and utter incompetence, Reid said in a statement. Biden will be a much-needed stabilizing force following Trumps disastrous term, offering a positive and progressive alternative to Trumps dark vision of racism,...
