"Just because Chairman Priebus looked me in the eye and made a promise to help Nevada does not mean it will happen. "
Republican National Committeeman James Smack was set to support a potential foe to Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus, but changed his mind after Priebus came to Las Vegas last week, he writes in a memo to the faithful. It's clear that Smack knew his decision would anger some Ron Paul backers, who were furious with Priebus for rule changes they believe hurt their man in Tampa last year. But Smack chose practical politics over dedication to the forces of liberty -- or words to that...

An odd statement, to say the least, one that essentially states the obvious: Our plan for the opening day of the 77th Legislative Session is to conduct business as usual with the traditional opening ceremonies and referral of pre-filed bills to committees. The full body of the Assembly will begin regular activities on day one with the members in attendance. Steven Brooks is a member of the Nevada Assembly. While the situation with regards to him is fluid and we will respect his needs for...
After being very active during Campaign '12, the Nevada chapter of Americans for Prosperity has sent out a missive signaling it will pressure Gov. Brian Sandoval and the Gang of 63 to abolish the Modified Business Tax. The group also expressed its displeasure with the governor's decision to expand Medicaid: Another platform explored in the Governor’s “State of the State” is the Medicaid expansion. AFP-NV does not support Governor Sandoval’s Medicaid expansion and believe he’s falling...
On Saturday morning, Las Vegas Latino leaders hosted a meeting at the Mexican eatery, Lindo Michoacan, to discuss pressing issues. Among the topics that arose was a proposed driver’s privilege card that will come before lawmakers this session as well as funding for English Language Learners. At least a half dozen legislators stopped by the breakfast, including state Sen. Ruben Kihuen, Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, Assemblyman James Healy, Assemblywoman Ellen Spiegel, state Senate Majority Leader...
Clark County Republicans want Sheriff Gillespie to refuse to enforce any "unconstitutional gun regulations"
So says a resolution passed last week by Nevada's largest Republican Party. And they don't even cite the letter written by Humboldt County Sheriff Ed Kilgore, instead invoking one penned by an Oregon sheriff. My guess is Gillespie, who ironically is meeting in DC with the president about gun control, will not agree to the GOP's request. Here is the party's pro-gun manifesto: Dear Clark County Republicans, The following resolution passed at the meeting of the Clark County Republican Central...
Here it is, surely prompted by Councilman Ricki Barlow's attempt to embarrass him (by the way, folks, premium subscribers to the site had this information 24 hours ago): After much reflection, I have prepared this statement to clarify my role in the events that lead to the arrest of Assemblyman Steven Brooks last Saturday, January 19, 2013. First let me say this, Steven is a good friend of mine. He is a good man and a committed public servant, but whom I feel needs help during what...
Yes, that's what Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald, who recently met with RNC Chair Reince Priebus, said was the problem for the GOP here in 2012. Seriously? Yes, seriously: “We had individuals come into this county and put down the people because they thought they knew better because they were from back East. They came into our women’s groups, they came into our leadership and they said, ‘Don’t worry about it, we know better than you because we’re educated’ — no." Who else...
Welcome to The Weekly Report, where you find exclusive commentary and analysis. This week: 1. Some wrapup Brooks nuggets 2. A quartet of other nuggets, with a Culinary picket, a Beers event, a Fernley decision and a collective bargaining bill draft BROOKS LOOSE ENDS I have already made it clear that I think the Steven Brooks story, while incredible, has now moved into a chapter where we should just let him get the help he needs. But there are a few loose ends to tie up, so: ►State Sen. Kelvin...
Steven Brooks’ political career is over. Of that there is no doubt. Even in the land of second chances, the man pictured shirtless on the front page is done. But what also should be over are the jokes, the ridicule, the lampooning. Brooks needs help – he is now at a treatment facility – and his friends acting like Pontius Pilate and his colleagues whispering they knew it all along should start behaving more like human beings than posterior-protecting, pusillanimous weasels. This is a human...
