Checks and Balances under attack in Carson City

Hearings regarding this measure are happening today, but ongoing opposition to it via email, snail mail, phone call or whatever it takes, will be necessary.  We the people are being railroaded again by the legislature.  Making the Treasurer and Controller appointed rather than elected positions gives too much power to the majority party and the governor.  This must be vigorously opposed!  Maintain our system of checks and balances!

Oppose AJR6: Abolishes offices of State Controller & Treasurer
Takes Away your Right to Vote for them

HEARING: Tues. 1:30 Rm 3142  Asm Legislative Operations and Elections
Las Vegas, Rm. 4404B of the Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington 
Watch online: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Calendar/A/
Vote will take place at a later meeting so contact the Committee

MESSAGE: Vote NO on AJR6. Don’t take away our right to vote for State Controller and State Treasurer putting them under the Governor. These independent offices provide for a check on State Government and the Governor. These offices are in the Nevada Constitution and have served us for over 153 years. (or write your own message)

Gun Rights under attack in Carson City

Oppose SB115: An Anti-Gun Bill denies right to carry in public library

The vote will not be until days later so it’s not too late to contact the committee. 

MESSAGE: Vote NO on SB115. Don’t leave us defenseless when we go to a public library by taking away our right to carry a concealed weapon. Gun free zones are magnets for criminals. Criminals prefer unarmed victims. (Or write your own message).

Is Obama plotting to undermine the Trump presidency?

obama-trumpLenin, Hitler, Mao, Alinsky-they all practiced or preached anarchy, street violence, and revolution. This ex-president is now revealing who he really is-the leader of the revolution to turn America into a Marxist state-the culmination of 100 years of progressive planning.  Lenin said that the West must be defeated from within by destroying our values and institutions.  Since this has been largely accomplished, the violent phase has begun. How the new administration responds may well determine whether we still have a Constitution and a republic. Pay close attention… Read more

AMAC Calls for Peaceful Opposition to Violent Protests

There is plenty of proof that organized agitators are behind attempts to substitute mob rule for the rule of law

WASHINGTON, DC, Feb 17 – “Anti-government protesters seek to disrupt the work of our nation’s elected officials on a scale never seen before,” says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.  “And former President Obama says he approves,”

In fact, Weber notes, 10 days after he left office Mr. Obama’s spokesman issued a statement saying, “President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,”

The AMAC chief points to the fact that the protesters appear to be well organized, earning the moniker, Obama’s Army.  That’s how the New York Times described the phenomenon.  Read More

TRUMP’S GROUNDBREAKING BID FOR INNER CITIES

WND EXCLUSIVE

TRUMP’S GROUNDBREAKING BID

FOR INNER CITIES

Republican candidate targets

minority vote, Democrats in

Milwaukee

WASHINGTON – It’s not unusual for Donald Trump to do things Republican presidential candidates of the past haven’t done.

But his appearance in Milwaukee Tuesday night was, well, unprecedented in a different way from what he has said and done in 2016.

Trump made an all-out, coherent bid for the inner-city vote, invading the inner sanctum and holy ground of the Democratic Party for 50 years.

“Tonight, I am going to talk about how to make our communities safe again from crime and lawlessness,” he said, first standing behind police in a city ravaged for days by rioting and violence over a police shooting that, if the facts laid out by law enforcement are true, does not appear to be a violation of policy, let alone the law.

He said the mayhem in Milwaukee is “an assault on the right of all citizens to live in security and peace.”

“Law and order must be restored. It must be restored for the sake of all, but most especially the sake of those living in the affected communities,” he added. “The main victims of these riots are law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods. It is their jobs, their homes, their schools and communities which will suffer as a result. There is no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct. Crime and violence is an attack on the poor, and will never be accepted in a Trump administration.”

He called for more police in America’s poorest communities and more effective policing.

“Just like Hillary Clinton is against the miners, she is against the police,” he said. “You know it, and I know it. Those peddling the narrative of cops as a racist force in our society – a narrative supported with a nod by my opponent – share directly in the responsibility for the unrest in Milwaukee, and many other places within our country. They have fostered the dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America.”

The pipeline’s approved. Environmentalists are angry.

The pipeline’s approved.

Environmentalists are angry.

08.12.2016

By Marita Noon

Final federal approval for what is being called the “new Keystone” came from the Army Corps of Engineers on July 26 — allowing the pipeline to move forward. The 1,168-mile long Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), also called the Bakken Pipeline, is comparable in length to the Keystone XL. It will cross four states and carry 450,000 barrels of oil a day from North Dakota to a transfer terminal in Illinois where it will connect with other pipelines and be taken to refineries.

The $3.8 billion dollar project has pitted environmentalists against economic interests.

During the Keystone fight, outspoken opponent Jane Kleeb, founder of Bold Nebraska, said: “In America we should be focused on making sure that the oil in North Dakota, Oklahoma, and others, in Montana, that that oil is getting to market.” Now, thanks to DAPL, America’s oil will have a safer way to get “to market” — freeing up as many as 750 train cars a day to transport corn, soybeans, and grain. However, as soon as DAPL came on the scene, they moved the marker, and environmental opposition was mounted. Bold Iowa, a group that shares a website with Kleeb’s Bold Nebraska, says it has members willing to risk arrest in “nonviolent protests.” They are also training monitors to report any environmental violations or hazards.

FBI’s Comey is complicit in Clinton email scandal

FBI’s Comey is complicit in Clinton

email scandal

Should James B. Comey, Jr. continue as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation? Is he professionally compromised? Does Mr. Comey continue to enjoy the “special trust and confidence” of the American people, the rank-and-file of the FBI, and the thousands of government employees holding security clearances and access to classified information?

On Tuesday, July 5, 2016, Mr. Comey conducted a fifteen-minute press briefing detailing the elements of the crime of mishandling national defense information, specifically Title 18 U.S.C. §793(f) and the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of an outlaw email server.

Comey provided the following detailed examples of how Mrs. Clinton violated the law: “110 e-mails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information.”

House Bill Would Strengthen Welfare Work Requirement

House Bill Would Strengthen

Welfare Work Requirement

Faith Vander Voort / May 27, 2016

Rep. Jim Jordan introduced a bill Thursday that would reform the Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

“Welfare programs are meant to be a temporary safety net, but they have become a permanent way of life for millions of Americans,” Jordan, R-Ohio, said in a statement. “Instead of giving impoverished families and individuals a helping hand, the current system penalizes positive steps toward self-sufficiency.”

According to a press release from Jordan’s office, H.R. 5360, the Welfare Reform and Upward Mobility Act, is based on Maine’s successful reforms and the welfare reforms of 1996.
