    An internal poll from Republican Adam Laxalt’s gubernatorial campaign shows him well in front of primary opponent Treasurer Dan Schwartz, by a margin of 66 percent to 7 percent. The poll showed Laxalt ahead but in a tighter race for the general election against both major Democratic candidates. It had Laxalt up six points on Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak, by a percent margin of 44-38, and ahead of Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani by a percent margin of 45-34. Laxalt, Nevada’s attorney general, has been endorsed by Vice President Mike Pence and a slew of Republican governors including Arizona’s...

    Speaking at a law enforcement appreciation event on Saturday January 13th, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he anticipates having a news conference in about a week regarding the investigation into the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. However, according to attending media, “he doesn’t expect the update to include shooter Stephen Paddock’s motive”. Last Friday a federal judge released more than a dozen search warrant affidavits filed by the FBI in the initial weeks following the Vegas shooting. The judge released the documents in response to a lawsuit filed by a group of media organizations. The search warrants’ present...

    An hour before Las Vegas cops released Stephen Paddock’s name, Danley deleted her Facebook account, according to newly released documents about the Oct. 1 mass murder of 58 people attending an outdoor country music concert on the Strip. Danley was traveling in the Philippines when Paddock unleashed the bullet barrage from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort. When he was finally done with unleashing mayhem on thousands of innocents, he took his own life. Danley was “adamant that she had no prior inclination of Paddock’s intentions to conduct the attack,” says an FBI agent’s affidavit. But the documents...

    On Friday a federal judge made public hundreds of pages of court documents that had been filed by the FBI in the days and weeks after the Las Vegas concert shooting. The judge did so in response to a lawsuit filed by CNN and several media organizations. On Sunday October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock opened fire on concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. The shooting left 58 dead and another 546 injured in the deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history. Investigative journalist Laura Loomer posted a page from the report on...

    FBI agents knew the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history left behind big caches of guns, ammunition and explosives when they sought warrants to search his properties and online accounts, according to court documents released Friday. A U.S. judge in Nevada unsealed the documents showing some of what federal agents learned about Stephen Paddock in the week after the Las Vegas shooting. Prosecutors didn't oppose the request from media organizations including The Associated Press to release affidavits that were filed to get search warrants.
  • Outrageous Prosecutorial Misconduct Comes Home to Roost in the Cliven Bundy Case

    There is an old Latin proverb, “Fiat justitia, ruat caelum,” which means, roughly translated, “Let justice be done, though the heavens may fall.” On Monday, January 8, 2018, the heavens fell on the United States Department of Justice. More specifically, on that day a United States District Court Judge, Gloria Navarro, dismissed the criminal charges that had been pending against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons, and a third defendant, for nearly four years. What made this action especially significant is not simply that the judge dismissed the charges, but that she did so with prejudice, meaning the...

    A federal judge dismissed all charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and another man on Monday after accusing prosecutors of willfully withholding evidence from Bundy’s lawyers. U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro cited "flagrant prosecutorial misconduct" in her decision to dismiss all charges against the Nevada rancher and three others. "The court finds that the universal sense of justice has been violated," Navarro said. “Either the government lied or [it’s actions were] so grossly negligent as to be tantamount to lying." - Judge Andrew Napolitano Bundy's supporters cheered as he walked out of court a free man, hugging...

    A federal judge ruled Monday that the federal government may not retry Cliven Bundy and his sons after rebuking prosecutors for withholding evidence during their felony trial stemming from an armed standoff four years ago. U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial in the case last month, saying federal prosecutors willfully withheld evidence that lawyers for the Bundys and alleged co-conspirator Ryan Payne should have had access to while mounting their defense. She said the attorneys were in violation of the Brady rule, which requires prosecutors to disclose evidence that could be favorable to a defendant, and told...

    During Paddock’s stay at the hotel, room service and housekeeping “had contact with Paddock or entered his suite more than 10 times,” according to a statement sent to CNN from MGM Resorts International, which owns the Nevada hotel. The Las Vegas Review-Journal first reported the extent of the hotel staff’s interactions with the gunman. Paddock opened fire from his 32nd-floor hotel room onto a crowd attending an outdoor country musical festival. He killed himself before police breached his hotel room door. Hotel staff performs a welfare check “after two consecutive days where a Do-Not-Disturb sign has been displayed on the door,”...

    The embarrassment a federal judge dealt to government prosecutors last month in the Cliven Bundy case could be set to resume Monday, at a hearing to determine whether the cattle rancher who became a folk hero long before he beat the feds can be retried. U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro on Dec. 20 declared a mistrial in the high-profile case. It was only the latest, stunning development in the saga of the Nevada rancher, and served as a repudiation of the federal government. Navarro accused prosecutors of willfully withholding evidence from Bundy’s lawyers, in violation of the federal Brady rule,...

    The owner of South Point, Michael Gaughan, has announced that he will be giving employees an extra $1M this year because of President Donald Trump's tax reform bill. “Las Vegas has experienced a significant amount of growth over the past few years, and this tax reform will continue to drive the economy for the city,” said Gaughan. “The new bill will have a monumental effect on our economy and, in turn, our property. We want to be sure that our extended family is taken care of.” He also said that employee bonuses will double this year. In addition, he is...

    The Las Vegas Sun ^ | December 8, 2017 | Mike Akers
    A new detection system to help prevent wrong-way crashes will be part of an interchange under construction in the south Las Vegas Valley. There were 279 wrong-way driver crashes on Nevada’s freeway systems from 2005 to 2015, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation. They resulted in 41 fatalities and 125 injuries. After researching ways to address the problem, NDOT determined a system using vehicle detection, cameras and red rectangular rapid-flashing beacons should be employed. To implement the system, NDOT requested and received permission from the Federal Highway Administration to experiment with the beacons. Permission was needed because red rapid...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) have introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, which would move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and therefore recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital city. Currently, the U.S. Embassy is located in Tel Aviv. In a statement, Sen. Cruz said that it was "finally time" to move the embassy. “Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided capital of Israel,” Sen. Cruz said. “Unfortunately, the Obama administration's vendetta against the Jewish state has been so vicious that to even utter this simple truth - let alone the reality...

    The tax reform law championed by President Donald Trump and Sen. Dean Heller is already boosting Nevada’s economy. The proof is sitting right on the Strip. On the same day that Trump signed the bill into law, New York developer Steven Witkoff announced plans to revive the stalled Fontainebleau resort. The imposing blue building on the north end of the Strip has sat empty since the original project went bankrupt in 2009. Coincidence? Nope. Witkoff began seeking a loan to complete the project once it looked as if tax reform had a good chance of passing, according to a Bloomberg...

    Attorney General Jeff Landry is urging a federal appeals court to reverse an order that is preventing the implementation of President Donald Trump's executive order regulating so-called "sanctuary cities," arguing that such immigrant-friendly jurisdictions "undermine the rule of law and deprive law enforcement of the tools necessary to enforce the law effectively." "We have seen too many crimes occur against our own State’s citizens due to sanctuary city policies; which is why I have been actively fighting back against these policies since taking office," Landry, a Republican, said in a news release announcing that he had joined 10 other attorneys...

    In a July 5th email, Ryan Payne's lawyers asked prosecutors for copies of all threat assessments prepared before the April 2014 standoff between Cliven Bundy's supporters and federal officers attempting to impound the Bundy family cattle for years of failing to pay grazing fees and fines. Prosecutors handling the Nevada standoff case characterized defendants' continued push for threat assessments as another in their "long list of frivolous and vexatious pleadings." Prosecutor's didn't turn over the multiple threat assessments to Payne and his co-defendants, Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy an his two sons, Ammon and Ryan Bundy, until the four were in...

    In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find. Which was how the Pentagon wanted it. For years, the program investigated reports of unidentified flying objects, according to Defense Department officials, interviews with program participants and records obtained by The New York Times. It was run by a military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, on the fifth floor of the Pentagon’s C Ring, deep within the building’s maze. The Defense Department has never before acknowledged the existence of the program, which it says it shut down...

    Another clip from the Nov. 2 interview on KLAS-TV Las Vegas, with Clark County Sheriff, Joe Lombardo who runs the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.  Total BS.  "When they made entry they found out he committed suicide."  Really, without any type of criminal investigation they immediately determined Stephen Paddock committed suicide.  So if you have a dead body with a handgun nearby and blood around the head, you immediately determine that it was a suicide and not a homicide.  Because of what the suspect did....they didn't want him reloading or give him the opportunity to keep firing.  BS.  They waited...
  • Nevada Man Sentenced in Sale of Stolen Air Force Ammunition

    A Nevada man who sold smoke grenades and military-issued ammunition stolen from the U.S. Air Force has been sentenced to 18 months in prison and two years' probation. U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre says 38-year-old Temogen Tran Noguni of Henderson was sentenced Friday in Las Vegas after pleading guilty in August to one count of unauthorized sale of U.S. property. Two co-defendants previously pleaded guilty to criminal charges in the case, including Jonathan Owens, a 27-year-old staff sergeant at Nellis Air Force Base.
