Brutal #PoliceState judge throws the book at #Bundy kook

The weight of a heavy sentence landed in the quiet federal courtroom Wednesday morning, leaving Gregory Burleson occasionally stroking his graying beard and his attorney pleading unsuccessfully for leniency.

The 53-year-old Burleson was the first to be sentenced for his role in the 2014 standoff between federal agents and supporters of Cliven Bundy near his Nevada ranch.

He got 68 years in prison.

U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro did take into account his blindness and frailty — he sat in a wheelchair during the hearing — but she also reminded Burleson of his crimes, which included threatening a federal law enforcement officer, obstruction of justice and interstate travel in aid of extortion.

Enjoy your Police State.

Deputy sues, charging that #StoreyCounty sheriff is a sex-perv

Storey County Sheriff Gerald Antinoro faces another lawsuit by a deputy claiming she was sexually harassed and was unwillingly transferred out of the department to work as a court bailiff.

The lawsuit was filed nearly four months after the sheriff survived a recall election that stemmed from various allegations of misconduct such as sexual harassment, wrongful terminations, ethical violations and budget problems.

Las Vegas Attorney Gus Flangas said his client, Melanie Keener, mulled over the decision to file a lawsuit against her former employer for several months.

“This is a decision that wasn’t taken lightly,” Flangas said last week. “She really thought long and hard about this. It wasn’t a decision that was made in haste.”

Perv Democrat resigns from Nevada Senate

Nevada state Sen. Mark Manendo, D-Las Vegas, resigned from his Senate seat Tuesday after the conclusion of an investigation into claims of sexual harassment.

Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford, D-Las Vegas, ordered the investigation after complaints against Manendo were brought April 27, according to a statement from the state Senate Democratic Caucus.

“The investigator concluded that Senator Manendo violated the Legislature’s anti-harassment policy; had engaged in multiple and repeated instances of inappropriate, offensive, and unacceptable behavior towards female staffers and lobbyists; and had attempted to interfere with the subsequent investigation into his conduct,” said a statement said.

Manendo submitted his resignation letter to Gov. Brian Sandoval on Tuesday.

Leftists threaten the life of Sen. Dean Heller

Tension over a Senate plan to repeal and replace Obamacare became personal for Sen. Dean Heller, a Nevada Republican whose office was targeted by a threatening note, officials said Monday.

Las Vegas police said Monday that a threatening letter was left behind at Heller’s office on Sunday morning. The Metropolitan Police Department would not specify what was in the letter, citing an open investigation.

The note addressed to Heller was found near the door to his office.
“Due to the open status of the investigation, the content of the note will not be disclosed at this time,” police said in a statement Monday.

Think about it for a minute…if it was an “atta boy Dean” letter they wouldn’t be keeping it a secret. Clearly in the Senator’s life was threatened. Under present day circumstances and based on the past actions of the Left, it would be hard to judge otherwise.

A spokeswoman for Heller referred all requests about the incident to police, citing the ongoing investigation.

Asked about the note after a groundbreaking ceremony for a veterans home in Sparks, Heller said he could not discuss the letter’s contents.

Faraday Future hits a snag in Las Vegas, dumps Vallejo

Faraday is trying to raise $1 billion to start production of its vehicle, a slick four-door electric sedan that can go from 0-60 mph in 2.39 seconds, but attracting investors has stumbled because of developments connected to the company’s primary backer, Chinese billionaire Jia Yueting.

A Chinese court last week froze $182 million in assets of Yueting related to another company, LeEco. Yueting, chairman of LeEco, quit his position with that company on Wednesday to focus on Faraday Future.

Faraday has also ended talks with the city of Vallejo, California, for a planned second factory on a 157-acre site on the city’s Mare Island.

#Hollywood is teaching kids to smoke

When Hollywood elites aren’t lecturing you on how you should vote, they’re busy making movies that teach your kids how to smoke.

With more and more films marketed to youth that depict actors smoking, a new report released Thursday recommends that movies with such images be given an R-rating.

The number of PG-13 films with actors smoking jumped from 564 in 2010 to 809 in 2016, according to the report. Nearly half of all films that depicted smoking were designed as kid-friendly or youth-rated, according to the report from the University of California, San Francisco and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control Prevention as well as other groups.

The report noted that movies that hit the top ten in the box office for at least one week between 2010 and 2016 were chosen for the study, accounting for 95 percent of movie tickets sold in that time frame.

The report suggests that public subsidies should not go to support movies that portray smoking.

More bad news for the #Left: U.S. employers add 222,000 jobs in June

More bad news for the elite media and the American Left.

U.S. employers added a robust 222,000 jobs in June, the most in four months, a reassuring sign that businesses may be confident enough to keep hiring despite a slow-growing economy.

The government also revised up its estimate of job growth for April and May were revised up by a combined 47,000. In the first six months of this year, hiring has averaged nearly 180,000 jobs a month.

Average hourly pay rose in June by 2.5 percent.

Surveys of manufacturing and service companies indicate that growth in both sectors may be accelerating. Factory activity is expanding at the fastest pace in three years, the Institute of Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, found.

No wonder President Trump keeps smiling.

Pension crooks cost Nevada taxpayers $23 million a year

Nevada governments are using the underfunded state pension system to boost the income of public employees.

Basically, they’re stealing from you.

The practice is based on decades-old or misused exemptions to the law. Taxpayers in Nevada are on the hook for at least $23 million a year as a result, according to a Las Vegas Review-Journal investigation.

French prosecutors target #Leftist Macron’s 2016 Las Vegas trip

The French have obviously never heard the expression, “What goes on in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”

A French investigation into a Las Vegas tech party is putting new pressure on Left-wing President Emmanuel Macron’s labor minister — and possibly the president himself.

The Paris prosecutor’s office opened a formal judicial inquiry Friday into suspected irregularities in the organization of a costly, high-profile event at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show that Macron headlined when he was a French government minister.

The inquiry is for “favoritism,” but it doesn’t name a suspected perpetrator yet, leaving it to investigators to determine later who might be at fault.

The company tasked with organizing the “French Tech Night” event, advertising firm Havas, is believed to have won the contract without undergoing open tender procedures, among other suspected problems.

Poll: Voters back President #Trump’s #Islamic #travelban

A clear majority of voters supports President Donald Trump’s travel ban on visitors from six predominantly Muslim countries, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

A resounding six-in-10 voters back the ban — and the survey suggests the actual policy may be more popular when separated from the president.

Asked whether they support or oppose the State Department’s “new guidelines which say visa applicants from six predominately Muslim countries must prove a close family relationship with a U.S. resident in order to enter the country,” 60 percent of voters say they support the guidelines, and only 28 percent oppose them.

The honestly done POLITICO/Morning Consult question doesn’t mention Trump, nor does it refer to the president’s executive orders on immigration. That contrasts with other polls, which mostly show elite media bias in opposition to the policy.

An Associated Press-NORC Center fake news poll last month showed a whopping 57-percent majority of Americans thought courts were acting rightly in blocking the travel ban. It just goes to show you how mis-lead American voters are by the elite media.

Republicans overwhelmingly back the restrictions, the poll shows. Eighty-four percent of GOP voters support the ban, while only 9 percent oppose it.

But the policy is also popular among independent voters: 56 percent support it, compared to 30 percent who oppose it.

Leftists, who tend to side with Islamics and support the use of violence as a tool to shape public policy, are against the ban, with 41 percent supporting it, and 46 percent in opposition.
