During his appearance in Sparks on Thursday, Donald Trump said he had heard the same nonsensical conspiracy theory about Secretary of State John Kerry's daughter's connection to Iran -- the implication being that this affected his negotiations on the nuclear deal. The Boston Globe's Kevin Cullen and others have debunked this garbage. But Trump was all ears during a Q & A after his speech: Female Supporter: "The rumor that I heard is that John Kerry's daughter married a physician in Iran...
Following up on his rebuke from the bench when he denied the tax repeal petition put forth by Citizen Outhouse's Chuck Muth, Judge Todd Russell has written a thorough evisceration of the attempt, setting forth language that jeopardizes the ongoing effort by the Political Arsonists Club of Nevada. Russell, in his decision posted below, essentially said Muth does not know the law and made no attempt to abide by it. It's almost as if he is still soliciting money for the tax repeal effort just to...
Early Saturday evening, Assemblyman Erv Nelson sent an email to his legislative colleagues, a brief but warm missive informing them he would be running for Mark Lipparelli's state Senate seat. What ensued showed once again (as if we need another reason) how unfit for office Assemblywoman Michele Fiore is as she responded (replying all!) with a vicious and illiterate attack on Nelson, implying he was illegally moving into the district and saying her BFF Victoria Seaman was going to "kick your...
Attorney General Adam Laxalt this morning filed suit against the federal government's sage grouse land-use plan, going against the wishes of Gov. Brian Sandoval, who has been negotiating to prevent a listing of the bird. "By pursuing litigation now, the Attorney General is acting in his personal capacity and does not represent the State of Nevada, the Governor, or any state agencies," Sandoval said in an unusally sharp rebuke to the AG. (Full statement below) The lawsuit, which you can see...
I broke the news late Tuesday afternoon that Assemblyman Brent Jones and state Sen. Don Gustavson had written a letter urging Sharron Angle to run for the U.S. Senate to take Harry Reid’s seat that she failed to win in 2010. (I tried to contact all three but no luck.) Then, late Tuesday evening, the full letter was posted here. And with a postscript added by Angle, it became clear this was a sanctioned effort by her (I thought so anyhow because she and Gustavson are pals) and that she really...
Here is the ad that One Nation, a GOP SuperPAC intended to be an alternative to the Harry Reid-driven Patriot Majority, is spending $800,000 on for the next few weeks in Nevada on behalf of Senate hopeful Joe Heck.
On Tuesday evening in Reno, a fundraiser for Republican Pat Hickey's anointed replacement for his Assembly seat will take place, with a guest list that indicates just how committed people are to ensuring that the seat is not turned over to an anti-tax zealot. I have seen some legislative fundraiser host committees in the South that are so stuffed with luminaries and lobbyists that they scream anointment. But the one that Jill Tolles, a longtime education activist and well connected member of...
Here's the letter SEIU local boss martin Bassick delivered to the executive board today: Letter of Resignation Exec Board - Final by Jon Ralston
What follows is a transcript of Donald Trump’s “speech” at the Treasure Island on Thursday, a trip into a rhetorical heart of darkness that makes Dennis Hopper in “Apocalypse Now” sound coherent. This is the GOP frontrunner for president in 10,000 words. I should annotate but I’ll let it speak for itself. Thank you everybody. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. So nice, thank you. Thank you very much. What a great group. You know they have hundreds and hundreds of...
