March 4 Trump in Las Vegas

Editor’s note: March 4 Trump gets very little press; more attention is paid in the media to anti-Trump demonstrators.  Attendees at Saturday’s rally said more than 200 people showed up, not the “handful” referenced in the R-J story.  The photo below was contributed by Julie Hereford, and not published in the newspaper.

Demonstrators showed their support for President Donald Trump with a rally Saturday outside the Las Vegas hotel that bears his name.

Trump supporters gathered at noon at Trump International, 2000 Fashion Show Drive, near the Strip, as part of a nationwide movement with one purpose: “Stop the fight. Let’s all unite.”

Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Grant Rogers didn’t have an estimated number of rally participants, but some estimates suggested 200 people turned out.

The nationwide rallies were coordinated by March4Trump, a grass-roots group started by Air Force veteran Vincent Haney.

 The movement was created to show support for Trump and “peacefully unite all people in honor of America,” Haney said last week when he announced plans for the rallies.

Rogers said a handful of Trump protesters were present at the Las Vegas rally.

No arrests were made and no citations given during the peaceful event, he said.

Separation of Powers in Nevada

Why separation of powers must be enforced in Nevada

Assembly Bill 121 is Exhibit A in the case for finally enforcing the state constitutional mandate for separation of powers, such that each branch of government may provide checks and balances to prevent the abuse that results when power is concentrated in too few hands.

The bill — introduced in Carson City by Democratic Las Vegas Assemblyman Steve Yeager — would wipe out much of the progress made in 2015 in public employee collective bargaining reforms.

Heartland Institute Opinions – President Trump’s speech

MARCH 1, 2017

“President Trump’s speech should help him gain public support for his programs. Inviting Democrats to put petty politics aside and work with him for the good of the country was a reasonable request.” – Robert Genetski

Read these opinions here.

The Heartland Institute’s mission is to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems. Those solutions include parental choice in education, market-based approaches to environmental protection, privatization of public services, and deregulation in areas where property rights and markets do a better job than government bureaucracies.

We are an “action tank” as well as a “think tank,” and we measure our success by the impact we have in the real world. The Heartland Institute plays an essential role in the national (and increasingly in the international) movement for limited government and personal liberty. We are the pipeline between the freedom movement’s leading writers and thinkers and the nation’s 50 state legislatures. The states are key battlegrounds for the advance of freedom.
