In a late night, weekend vote, the Nevada Democrats passed a power grab bill to allow all mail voting and ballot harvesting for November “It’s gonna lead to mass chaos, uncertainty and certainly lead to litigation” - Nevada Trump 2020 Co-Chair @Adam Paul Laxalt
. @Adam Paul Laxalt on Nevada passing mail-in voting: “I thought it was too dangerous to vote in person...so this governor who tells us the construction of the Las Vegas Raiders Stadium has to go on during COVID, with positives at these sites, is now telling us it’s not safe to vote.”
@Adam Paul Laxalt They may want to ask@about the public input as well.
Nevada Democrats - zero Repubs and no Secretary of State. Not about Covid19 or all parties would have been at the table. Who did write the bill if not the head of elections(and Attorney General couldn’t be involved either without her or a conflict). Good question for media to ask
Completely altering our election procedures without even consulting with Secretary of State, the election expert...or listening to the people. 2840 against, 42 for on the bill comments to legislators!
Massive pushback on Democrats’ midnight push to change election rules less than 100 days out from Election Day. #nvleg Just take look at the legislature’s site (which I’m sure Nevada’s MSNBC pundit and local blog editor will ignore) https://www.leg.state.nv.us/AppCF/Opinion/32nd2020Special/reports/OpResults.cfm
See if you can spot the problem: 1. Virtually no one is enforcing/investigating election law. 2. Democrats pass bill allowing ballot harvesting. 3. Democrats pass bill mailing absentee ballots to everyone while gutting signature verification.
Great piece by Las Vegas Review Journal’s @Victor Joecks. Indeed the great whitewash continues! It’s even worse than a whitewash of the current violence. They actually pretend that Federal “stormtroopers” caused the “peaceful protests” to turn violent in Portland. Dangerous stuff.
Incredible that not a single elected official quoted in this story places the blame for this on the Governor, where it obviously rests. One of them, Democrat Rep. Susie Lee, even manages to blame President Trump for the failures of Nevada's state government. Amazing.
This story of Nevadans struggling to get unemployment benefits somehow doesn’t mention Gov. Sisolak is to blame for DETR’s failures. It’s his agency. This was also something he’s known about for months. Nevadans suffer & the Gov. escapes accountability. https://www.reviewjournal.com/business/thousands-of-jobless-nevadans-reach-out-to-lawmakers-for-help...
We must educate Nevada’s students, and in-person instruction is a safe and vital part of accomplishing that goal. But what’s your opinion? Answer the poll question below to weigh in and to see what Nevadans think!
True! Judiciary Dems did not let AG Barr answer questions and instead spent their five minutes selling their false narrative. They were petrified that he would blow up their lies if he was allowed to speak. As Barr said “this is a hearing. I thought I was supposed to be heard.”
All churches want is same treatment as businesses/gyms/restaurants. They can safely social distance at 50% w/o arbitrary cap of 50 people regardless of church’s size. Roberts got it wrong — terrible for worshipers & 1st Amendment. Sisolak should move to 50% standard immediately.
The Supreme Court's decision to block Calvary Chapel’s request is an affront to liberty & the 1st Amendment. As Justice Gorsuch states in his dissent: “There is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesars Palace over Calvary Chapel.” https://www.nationalreview.com/news/supreme-court-rejects-nevada-churchs-challenge-to-coronavirus-re...
More mail-in issues!
“It’s been dysfunctional to the extreme,” said Brian Van Nieuwenhoven, treasurer of the Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club in the district. At the center of this mess is a massive influx of mail-in ballots...and a system wholly unprepared to process them.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/a-month-later-this-new-york-city-primary-is-still-a-t...
Buckley has a good life but my first dog Hoya really lived the life. He lived on and swam in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Mediterranean Sea all when I was in the Navy. The Sicilians thought the fetching swimming yellow lab who would also kayak with me was the funniest thing ever.
Important @Nevada Policy piece on Dems prioritizing unions over ordinary Nevadans. Remember: AFSCME, the union representing gov't employees, gave nearly a quarter million dollars to Dems' legislative candidates & PACs over the past 3 months alone. The pay-to-play session!
Check out this @Nevada Policy analysis on Dems failing NV in the special session because of misplaced priorities. "Nevada lawmakers have put the concerns of politically connected government unions over those of taxpayers, students and at-risk Nevadans." https://www.npri.org/commentary/lawmakers-cut-millions-from-education-and-healthcare-for-unions/
No question expanded absentee and all mail-in voting is vulnerable to an array of abuse and chaos in our November election.
Wow these revolutionary radical liberal Mayors(Wheeler and Frey) have something in common. They eventually get their heads chopped off by the radicals they aim to lead for not being quite extreme enough. Who could have imagined that?
This Fox News investigative report is truly shocking. A left wing dark money group set up fake newspapers in swing districts where Democrats won close elections against Trump candidates in 2018. They pump positive press to swing voters and they even do paid targeting. 👇🏻🚨🚨🚨
"People are worried about fake news now, you can only imagine the proliferation of this model in years to come..." Our Outside Counsel @Adam Paul Laxalt takes aim at the "fake news" being pushed by Democrat dark-money syndicate: @COURIER ⬇️ https://www.foxnews.com/media/liberal-dark-money-funded-courier-newsroom-targets-voters-democratic-t...
Excellent thread, showing examples and naming names of the journalists and news outlets who bought the Steele dossier and attacked those who doubted its credibility. It is now clear that the dossier was crap. Those who bought it should be hanging their heads.
Remember the Steele dossier? It went to hell today, barely making news. Now that its been thoroughly discredited, anyone care for a trip down memory lane about how folks on the left & in the media hyped it up because it made Trump look bad? 🧵Thread🧵 https://www.wsj.com/articles/newly-declassified-documents-suggest-fbi-was-wary-by-early-2017-of-stee...
OPED from that fringe Wall Street Journal Editorial Board that is known for carrying Trump’s water. All-Mail November elections will be a disaster. Add NY to the recent tally that media and the left wing(and some GOP) keep saying are unsubstantiated claims https://www.wsj.com/articles/new-yorks-mail-vote-disaster-11595286912
