Note the Difference Between Bundy Ranch Protest and Ferguson Riots

-By Warner Todd Huston

A comparison between the Bundy ranch protests from April of this year to what is going on in Ferguson is telling. It is also very, very instructive on just how to stand up for your rights in the era of a thoroughly militarized government.

Early in 2014 a rancher in Nevada named Cliven Bundy became the focus of an anti-government protest when the Bureau of Land Management swooped in with a paramilitary attack on Bundy’s ranch killing his cattle and claiming he was going to be arrested for supposedly refusing to pay a grazing tax, a dispute over which rancher Bundy and the government had been embroiled since 1993.

As the government swooped in with a militarized retinue of shock troops featuring armored vehicles, fully automatic machine guns, body armor, and hundreds of officers, people around the country began to perk up and take notice. Within a matter of days hundreds of American citizens made their way to the Bundy ranch in Nevada to stand up to the overreaction of the federal government.

Nevada Voters Chose ‘None Of These Candidates’ For Democrat Gov. Primary Candidate

Nevada Voters Chose ‘None Of These Candidates’ For Democrat Gov. Primary Candidate

-By Warner Todd Huston

It’s the oldest joke in electoral politics, the idea that a voter would rather pick “none of the above” than vote for one of the proffered candidates. Well, in Nevada, “none of the above” just won election. No, really!

Just like everyone else, voters in Nevada have a choice of the representatives from each party, of course. But Silver State voters have one other choice on their ballots, too: “None of These Candidates.”

In Nevada’s Democrat primary “None of These Candidates” showed up strongly both for Governor and Lt. Governor. But the non choice actually won top spot for the Democrat choice for governor!

Robert Goodman was trying to gain the nomination of the Democrat Party to run against incumbent Republican Governor Brian Sandoval. Sadly for Bobbie, he didn’t quite make the cut as “None of These Candidates” beat him 29.96 percent to Bobbie’s 24.7 percent.

Cops Murdered: ‘The Beginning of the Revolution’

Cops Murdered: ‘The Beginning of the Revolution’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Saying “this is the beginning of the revolution,” a couple gunned down two Las Vegas police officers as they ate lunch last weekend. The pair killed themselves in a WalMart not long afterward. As this incident was reported, it occurred to me that I have been warning of this horrible state of affairs, and I am afraid this is not going to be a one-off incident.

As we learn more of the pair of shooters we find that they have a history of seeing government as an enemy to the people. But they aren’t alone.

In the after math as police talked to the media about the shootings, Sheriff Doug Gillespie told the media, “What precipitated this event, we do not know. My officers were simply having lunch.”

But is the sheriff right? Is this incident really such a surprise?

The shootings that ended inside a Las Vegas WalMart with a pair of murderers insisting that they were killing “law enforcement” officers as a means to start a revolution is exactly the sort of thing I have warned about many times.

Firstly, we need to realize this is not a “gun” problem. This is a government problem.

Obama’s Jackbooted Thugs Withdrawing From Bundy Ranch in Nevada?

Obama’s Jackbooted Thugs Withdrawing From Bundy Ranch in Nevada?

-By Warner Todd Huston

It is possible that Obama’s oppressive, jackbooted thugs are withdrawing from their attack on a Nevada rancher after stealing over 500 of his cattle. Government officials are saying that the situation has become “too dangerous” for its operatives and the situation is spiraling out of the government’s control, so they are quitting their efforts to destroy an American citizen’s livelihood… at least for now.

The situation had exploded into extreme measures by Obama’s Bureau of Land Management, a bureaucracy that wanted to destroy the livelihood of 67 year-old rancher Cliven Bundy whose family have been cattle ranching in that same area of Nevada bordering with Utah since the late 1800s.

BLM has been slowly destroying the cattle industry in that area for quite some time and Bundy is the last rancher left. But Bundy refuses to acquiesce to the government’s lies and jackbooted tactics. He and his family have been there for over one hundred years and he refuses to leave.

Why is the government trying to get him to quit the land? Because the government claims that with his cattle Bundy is harming the environment for the purportedly “endangered” desert tortoise.

This is an animal so “endangered” that the U.S. government itself has been euthanizing hundreds of them because there are too many for the land to support.

But the BML is indulging the lie that this tortoise is “endangered” and using that as an excuse to send hundreds of para military agents armed to the teeth and ready to kill anyone in their way to “save” an animal of which they themselves are killing hundreds.

In fact, the double lie about this turtle is that its population has exploded while living alongside Bundy’s cows the entire time. So it is clear that the cattle aren’t bothering the turtles at all.

The real nub of this matter is that Obama and his thuggish government has indulged a bacchanalia of land theft that has made other president’s land seizures pale in comparison. Bundy’s hundred-year-old ranch is in the way of Obama’s land theft and thus he was set up for destruction.

New Mexico Police Chief Fired Likely Because He Attended Constitutional Rights Gathering

-By Warner Todd Huston

New Mexico police chief Shane Harger recently attended an event in Las Vegas held by a group that urges police officials to be mindful of the U.S. Constitution in the execution of their duties. But upon returning home from the convention, Harger was suddenly fired from his job as the chief of Jemez Springs, New Mexico because, he says, he has been called a “terrorist” for believing in the Constitution.

Chief Harger attended the Las Vegas gathering of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) to hear what the group had to say about its goals. Harger says he’d never attended such an event in the past and until the Vegas event was not a member of the group.

On the way to the CSPOA event, though, the chief suddenly found that his name had been placed on some sort of watchlist by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and he was harassed by TSA agents as he tried to board his plane.

Harger reported that when he got to the airport a man who briefly flashed a badge and claimed to be a “federal agent” (from what agency he would not say) informed the police chief that he was a “person of interest” and that he had to be detained.

Bunny Ranch Sex Workers Praise Obamacare

-By Warner Todd Huston

The prostitutes of Nevada’s Bunny Ranch love Obamacare. But if a recent interview with them are any indication, they don’t seem to have a clue what it is all about.

The prostitutes appeared on Reno’s KRNV TV full of praise for Obamacare ladled on as thick as their makeup. At least two of the girls were gushing about how great Obamacare is and how they fully support it.

She calls herself Caressa Kisses. No, really.

One girl, amusingly going by the name Caressa Kisses (not her real name. I know, you’re shocked), told the media that she is classified as a sex worker so insurance companies consider her job high risk for sexually transmitted diseases (like, totally) so she can’t get insurance cheaply.

First Lawmaker Ever Expelled From Nevada State Assembly Arrested in California Hours Later

First Lawmaker Ever Expelled From Nevada State Assembly Arrested in California Hours Later

-By Warner Todd Huston

Nevada Democrat Steven Brooks has become the first elected official ever expelled from the Nevada State Assembly. But in a strange twist, the lawmaker was arrested in California only hours later charged with assaulting police.

The arrest in California isn’t the first time that Steven Brooks (D, N. Las Vegas) has been arrested.

On January 19, Brooks was arrested by North Las Vegas Police for threatening another lawmaker with violence. It was said he waived around a gun while making the threats.

Not long after he was released on the first charge, Books was arrested again for assaulting a family member.

After this behavior, especially the threats to Nevada Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, also a Democrat, a committee was convened to consider what to do with Rep. Brooks.

Nev. Dem. Arrested Again For Violence

February 13, 2013 | Filed Under Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Liberals, Nevada, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

A few weeks ago, Nevada Democratic Assemblyman Steven Brooks, 40, was arrested for threatening to kill the Nevada Speaker of the Assembly. This week he is behind bars again, this time charged with suspicion of domestic battery against a thus far unnamed family member.

Authorities reported that Brooks was arrested on February 11 outside his Las Vegas home after getting combative with police. Officials say that they had “determined Brooks had physically attacked a family member.” Further details have yet to be released on the incident.

This isn’t the first time Assemblyman Brooks mixed it up with police. At the end of January, Democrat Brooks was arrested for “threats of physical violence” lodged against Nevada Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, also a Democrat.

Nevada Democrat Arrested for Threatening Life of State Assembly Speaker

-By Warner Todd Huston

Things are getting rough out in Nevada. Democratic Assemblyman Steven Brooks was just arrested for “threats of physical violence” against Nevada Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, also a Democrat. Some reports even claim that a weapon was involved, or threatened to be used.

The arrest came on Saturday, January 19, after Brooks made verbal threats against Speaker Kirkpatrick. Early reports had Brooks actually brandishing a weapon but later reports claimed he had just threatened to get his gun that was in his car.

The North Las Vegas Police reports as follows:

North Las Vegas, NV – On January 19, 2013 at about 3:45 p.m. officers responded to a home in the northwestern part of North Las Vegas in reference to a report of threats to an elected public official. It was reported that Assemblyman Steven Brooks (40) of North Las Vegas made threats to harm a fellow State representative.

Right Online 2012: Great Success at the Vegas Venetian

June 17, 2012 | Filed Under Americans For Prosperity, Capitalism, Free Trade, Jobs, Las Vegas, Nevada, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

For my final report on the fifth annual Right Online 2012 sponsored by Americans for Prosperity we’ll be talking about the parade of great speakers like NRO writer Jonah Goldberg and environmental apostate (as far as the left is concerned) Ann McElhinney. But first a word about the great hotel and casino in which we stayed.

The Venetian Las Vegas is in many ways a conservative’s dream hotel — well, unless you opposing gambling, and certainly many conservatives do — that aside, as I was saying, The Venetian is the best of Vegas and the best for conservative entrepreneurship. You see, this hotel is the only union free hotel on the strip.

But not only is The Venetian union free, it also has the highest paid staff getting the best benefits in Vegas. This is because conservatives know how to treat their employees!

If you are planning a Vegas get away, even if you aren’t planning on gambling, come stay at the Venetian. Heck, it’s even the biggest single building in the world, now. The suites are incredible, there’s shopping, big time stage shows, swimming, and eating and drinking galore.

Just look at this incredible room:

See the sacrifices I have to make to report these events to you?

Anyway, folks, do yourselves a favor if you’re coming to Las Vegas, book The Venetian.

Nevada Teachers Cast Out An Eeeevil Conservative Blogger

-By Warner Todd Huston

My friend Mike Chamberlain was a baaad boy last week at the Nevada State Education Association’s annual convention. It seems he was tossed out of the convention on his ear for his blasphemies. It’s no wonder they tossed out this ne’er-do-well, too. He had the temerity to… sit quietly in a corner and take notes on his laptop. How disruptive, eh?

Saturday I was kicked out of the Nevada State Education Association, the state teachers union, convention for, well, for being a conservative at the NSEA convention. Not only did they kick me out of their meeting but, later, one of the directors called me and the others who attended as guests of one of the delegates “enemies” of the organization.

Heck, Mike didn’t even crash the joint. He was properly invited and allowed int the place by a NSEA member, too. I’d say he has a lot to learn about being an obstreperous, party crasher! Being all peaceful and unassuming. The NERVE of him!

Even American ‘Cowboys’ Now Government Teat Suckers

-By Warner Todd Huston

Last month when the current series of budget debates began to heat up, the ineffectual leader of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate thought he had a great little point against proposed tax cuts by crying that the cuts would destroy Nevada’s “Cowboy Poetry.”

Oh, the humanities.

You might recall that last month Reid ambled up to the podium on the floor of the Senate and loosed his six shooters on GOP tax cutters saying that the cuts would kill off the famous cowboy poetry event held every January in Elko, Nevada.

As idiotic as that claim is, there was a paucity of replies to Reid’s claims by the very cowboy poets that he claimed he was wearin’ the white hat for. Well, The New York Times has a piece rectifying that problem by giving speaking space to some of the cowboys involved in this taxpayers funded event.

Nevada Nanny State Nonsense: Banning Your Candles and Air Fresheners

-By Warner Todd Huston

Nevada has a nose for nonsense. This time the stink wafting from the Silver State is not from the back allies of its casinos but from its state house where politicians are sticking their noses in Nevada’s candles and air fresheners. Wallowing in true nanny state stupidity Democrats are considering a bill to ban candles and air fresheners because a tiny fraction of the population is allergic to the scents in them.

Las Vegas Democratic Assemblyman Paul Aizley on Monday presented AB234, which sets restrictions on pesticides, fragrances and candles to accommodate people with chemical sensitivities. Proponents said air fresheners give them migraines or asthma attacks and prevent them from going to the movies or to restaurants. A cocktail waitress at a casino said inhaling the fragrances piped through the ventilation system felt like a concrete slab on her chest.

Someone should consider a bill to ban nosy, buttinski Democrats instead…

Nevada Democrats Avoiding Voters, Hiding Actions From Public, Firing People Without Cause

-By Warner Todd Huston

Once in a while a story of the sort of arrogance in government that should make every fair-minded American sick at heart comes out to show how Democrats act when have a lock on power and when they think no one is looking. This time we find an amazing amount of arrogance in Nevada, one that is obviously a violation of Thomas Jefferson’s axiom that men are not born to be ridden “booted and spurred” by government but are free men. This government arrogance is truly as un-American as can be.

There are many instances of Democrat arrogance, of course. Like when North Carolina Democrat Congressman Bob Etheridge Democrat Al Green hectored a Washington Times reporter about the KKK (when it was Democrats that created the terror group in the first place), or when Congressman Charlie Rangel stormed out of an ethics hearing after being convicted on 11 counts because, well, he was incensed that anyone had the temerity to call him on his perfidy. Well, there are just too many to cover fully.

Chuck Muth of Citizen Outreach has the outrageous story of a lowly legislative aide fired for no reason whatever because a public record email was released to the public. Imagine the people thinking that they have a right to see the official emails of their own government officials! The gall of those voters!

It Begs the Question: The Cowboy Poetry Society

-By Frank Hyland

The speech by U.S. Senate Majority Bleater Harry Reid (D, NV) on the Senate floor on March 8th is destined to become a classic in the pantheon of such utterances. In condemning the cutting of funds for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Sen. Reid decried the ending of an annual festival in Nevada and stated, “Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.” We’ll leave it to a higher authority in the field of Medicine to determine whether the attendees would still exist.

The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, the actual name of the festival, was held this year from January28th to February 4th. Direct from the festival’s website is the cost of tickets to the events:

“For the 27th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, if purchased prior to December 22, 2010, a four-day Deluxe Pass was $60 and included the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering program book. After December 22, the cost increased to $75. If not purchased as a part of a Deluxe Pass, the program book sold for $6.00. A single Day Pass for Wednesday, January 26 was $15, and single Day Passes for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 27-29 were $25 each.”

Truth in Accounting Issues: Nevada’s ‘Financial State of the State’ – True Tax Burden $4.3 Billion

Truth in Accounting Issues: Nevada’s ‘Financial State of the State’ – True Tax Burden $4.3 Billion

From the Institute for Truth in Accounting…

Chicago (November 29, 2010) Today, the Institute for Truth in Accounting released Nevada’s “Financial State of the State.” After an intensive review of the State’s 2010 audited financial report the Institute determined the State is in a precarious financial position because it does not have the funds available to pay more than $4.3 billion of the State’s commitments as they come due. Each taxpayer’s share of this financial burden equals $5,000.

Nevada state law requires a balanced budget. “If governors and legislatures had truly balanced the state’s budget, no taxpayer’s financial burden would exist,” said Sheila Weinberg, founder and CEO of the Institute for Truth in Accounting (IFTA). She continued, “A state budget is not balanced if past costs, including those for employees’ retirement benefits, are pushed into the future.”

Now That He’s Won, Reid’s Paying Back Unions

-By Warner Todd Huston

Harry Reid survived his brush with electoral death winning yet another term as Nevada’s Senator. Reid knows what side of his bread is buttered, too. Big Labor gave him millions in campaign donations and Reid knows who he owes — or rather who owns him. Now that he’s fairly won he’s promising his patrons in Big Labor that he intends to push one of their favorite laws.

Reid has said that one of his first priorities will be to push a cloture vote on the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act (S.3992) that he ramrodded earlier this year.

This act is focused on the unionization of the nation’s police, firemen and other first responders. It would replace with federal rules all state laws on collective bargaining between state and local governments and their first responder unions and would greatly empower unions to dictate pay scales and benefits on a national level.

If you attend you’ll find sessions and panels that range from such introductory programs as “Blogging 101” ad “podcasting 101,” to more in depth online activities as “Citizen Journalism” and “Global Warming and Energy Policy.” It really is a worthwhile endeavor and if the conference ever comes to a town near you, please do yourself a favor and attend.

Is ‘Journalist’ Another Job Americans Won’t Do?

-By Selwyn Duke

Whenever criticizing grammar and punctuation, you run the risk of being labeled punctilious. Worse still, since even many good writers involved in Internet journalism disgorge the odd typo, there’s the chance you will come to be regarded as an expert on the glass-house real estate market. Yet there’s no doubt that the much lamented decline in journalism is about style as well as substance. And, just occasionally, you encounter an example of it that demands some attention.

Such is a Channel 13 Action News (ABC) article titled “Las Vegas Mayor Goodman rejects Obama invitation,” a piece that is, you might say, plagiarism proof. It brings to mind that oft-heard journalistic advice that, put loosely, instructs one to write at an eighth-grade level. Only, I didn’t know it referred to the eighth grade in Mexico — when writing in English. That is to say, it’s obvious the piece was not penned by a native English speaker.

The article is so bad that it’s impossible to print all the errors contained therein without running afoul of Fair Use Doctrine. So, since I don’t write for The New York Times and my name isn’t Zachary Kouwe or Jayson Blair, I’ll just say that I counted nine major mistakes (and I’m omitting much) in the 333-word piece and will present the most glaring examples. I won’t provide corrections, however, as these excerpts speak for themselves. And if a reader can’t hear what they say, I suggest that he has a future at ABC News.

Why This Conservative Wants Harry Reid to Stay Right Now

January 12, 2010 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Congress, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Liberals, Nevada, President, Race, Senate, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

Of course it would serve Senate Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid and the Democrats right if they found Reid hounded from the Democrat leadership or even from office over his racist comments made about President Obama back during the presidential campaign. After all the faux charges of racism that the left has used to hound Republicans from office, it would be sweet revenge to turn it on Harry Reid. But as a conservative, I do not want to see Reid hounded from his Democrat leadership position and I most especially don’t want him to leave office before the 2010 elections.

Does that sound hard to understand? You might ask why a conservative woud want to protect Harry Reid? Well, it’s all about politics, my friend.
