Getting the Government We Pay For

ImageGetting the Government We Pay For

From Cliven Bundy to bungled websites, we’ve created a monster by starving it

According to a proclamation from Governor Brian Sandoval’s office, May 4-10 will be Nevada State Employee Recognition Week, to praise their good work, including how they “conserve and preserve our natural and clitoral resources.”

It presumably should have been “cultural resources,” unless it was a bow to the state allowing legal prostitution. Actually, though, it says a lot about both Obamacare and Cliven Bundy—not what’s wrong with them, but what’s wrong with us.

How did you react to the obvious typographical error? You may have laughed, or thought it referred to how state employees are treated. More likely, you saw it as typical of our incompetent government—whatever level it is—to make such a silly mistake.

Government makes bigger mistakes. Set aside what the Bureau of Land Management has done right or wrong lately, not to mention Bundy’s grasp of race relations. He quit paying his grazing fees 20 years ago. Where has the BLM been? Continue reading

When Does a Government Become an Invader

I Am Liberty

in•va•sion [in-vey-zhuhn]

1. an act or instance of invading or entering as an enemy, especially by an army.

2. the entrance or advent of anything troublesome or harmful, as disease.

3. entrance as if to take possession or overrun: the annual invasion of the resort by tourists.

4. infringement by intrusion.

For those of you who listen to my show I AM Liberty you know that I am in no way a revolutionary. Though I am very much pro reality and this piece is very much about the reality of a government that has grown so big so fast that I don’t even think, at its highest levels, it knows what its become.

The use of the definition for Invasion above was used to drive home this idea that collectively the government seems to have morphed into something that it never intended to be. I think using definitions will…

CIA Expert: Damning Obama Verdict Should Lead To Arrest And Imprisonment Of Washington Criminals

20-year CIA employee and strategic policy expert Clare Lopez joins Rick Wiles to share explosive news, a ‘damming verdict’ that should lead to the indictment, arrest and imprisonment of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and a long list of other criminals in Washington. This verdict was reached by the Citizen’s Commission on Benghazi and the bombshell information contained herein shares that while under Obama, the United States “switched sides” in the war on terror and now openly supports the al-Qaeda terrorists.

The people joining Lopez on this commission included high-profile individuals such as Ret. General Paul Vallely, Ret. General Thomas McInerney, Ret. Admiral James Lyons, Ret. Lieutenant Colonel Allen West and many others from both the defense and intelligence community. The introduction is 50 seconds after which Rick shares his ‘explosive’ introduction. The segment of the show with Lopez begins at 9 minute 20 second for this bombshell report that should soon lead to the imprisonment of the criminals in Washington DC.

2 charged with selling counterfeit drugs to Carson City cancer center

ImageCENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) — Two officials in charge of a suburban pharmaceutical company were charged Wednesday with selling more than $17 million in counterfeit or unapproved drugs, including cancer drugs and birth control.

The president and vice president of Great Neck-based Pharmalogical, Inc., William Scully, 45, of Commack, and Shahrad Rodi Lameh, 40, of Manhasset, pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court in Central Islip. Bond was set for each at $500,000.

Attorneys for the men did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Authorities accused Scully and Lameh of being motivated by greed.

“Instead of seeing an opportunity to alleviate suffering and cure disease, Scully and Lameh saw a chance to make money off the backs of those already fighting for their lives, selling counterfeit cancer medication to an unsuspecting clinic,” U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said in announcing the charges.

BLM facing questions about inaction in Carson City

ImageCARSON CITY, Nev. ( & KRNV) — The Bureau of Land Management is at the center of controversy again in Nevada. This time, its not a cattle rancher, but a Carson City recreation spot that is at the center.

Prison Hill Recreation Center sits behind the Northern Nevada Correctional Center. It spans an area from Fifth Street on the north side, all the way to the Carson River.

It is an area currently managed by the BLM. However, the site is scheduled to be transferred to Carson City at some point. For now, neighbors surrounding the site are frustrated over what they say are the BLM’s non-enforcement of issues plaguing the area.

Neighbors say there is lots of illegal dumping. “Another thing you can find around here, there are plenty of spray paint cans,” said Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong. “People will take these up into the hills where they’ll deface the rocks.”

While there are lots of dirt roads in the area, motorized vehicles are not allowed on the north end of the site. They are only allowed in the south end.

Furlong agreed to help with enforcement, following last week’s meeting of the city’s Open Space Committee. “The sheriff’s office is going to pick up some of the slack, Parks and Recreation and Open Space is going to pick up some of the slack.”

Furlong said the first thing that will be addressed is putting up signs indicating where motorized vehicles will be allowed. “It’s difficult for me to understand why I can’t drive here if there’s a road right here and I see other people.”

He plans to have patrols out to educate those driving in unauthorized areas, but the graffiti clean-up will be harder. “We do have graffitti crews that work, but they are predominately inmate crews, and sending them up into what you might want to call rugged area, the chances of injury can be pretty high.”

One thing his patrols will not tolerate is illegal dumping. “For those who choose to dump up here, I’ve told our patrol division there won’t be any slack.”

The BLM and Forest Service provide the Carson Sheriff’s Office with around $12,000 per year for cooperative enforcement. The Carson Board of Supervisors may take this issue up with BLM officials at its next meeting.


It’s A Very International Endeavor

CBS Las Vegas

(Las Vegas, NV) — A record breaking number of people paid a visit to Las Vegas in March.  Many of the visitors came from other countries.

Michael Leven, President and COO of Las Vegas Sands tells The Las Vegas Morning News the increase in international business is a major opportunity for Las Vegas.

Leven says one factor is more flights from overseas, but he says we need more. He says we have plenty of rooms and plenty of opportunity to grow.

Las Vegas Sands is a major player internationally with a resort  in Macau and plans for expansion into Japan and Korea depending on legislative action in those countries.

Unexpected Suggestions for Constitutional Changes

PUMABydesign001's Blog

U S Constitution

Breitbart (Phyllis Schlafly)

It looks like all sorts of people are joining the game of rewriting parts of the U.S. Constitution. It started with state legislators who apparently had time on their hands, and now it’s even extended to U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg made a joint appearance at the National Press Club and added their two bits worth of advice about changing our Constitution. Justice Scalia said he would like an amendment to make it easier to pass more amendments, which probably is music to the ears of those who are trying to pass several or even a dozen new amendments. Currently it’s considered to be a laborious process even to get a constitutional amendment introduced, much less passed and ratified.

However, Justice Scalia added a caveat to his suggestion, saying “I certainly would not want a constitutional convention. Whoa! Who knows what…

Bunny Ranch Owner Bans Donald Sterling For Life

CBS Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) – The owner of the legendary Bunny Ranch brothel has decided to follow suit and ban Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life.

Dennis Hof, the owner of The Bunny Ranch, announced Tuesday that Sterling would not be welcome at the famous brothel, said in a press release. Others who are banned include NFL quarterback Michael Vick and “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.

Hof, who is the star of HBO’s “Cathouse” series, also announced that he has taken the first steps of forming a group with his prostitutes and brothel clients to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers.

“Teams like The Green Bay Packers have had great luck in allowing their fans to participate in ownership,” Hof said. “I think the notion of an embattled team like The Clippers being rescued from the clutches of a hateful racist by a multi-ethnic collection of successful business…

Las Vegas police changes investigations of inmate deaths

The Force Investigation Team is the same unit that investigates officer-involved shootings and all other use of force incidents within Metro. The change is an effort to standardize the department’s internal investigations, Meltzer said. On the same day as the announcement, police said the Force Investigation Team is looking into two separate inmate deaths that happened over the weekend.

On Saturday, a 61-year-old man collapsed in his cell at the Clark County Detention Center and died shortly after, according to police. The following day at the North Valley Complex, located at 5900 N. Sloan Lane, a 57-year-old man was involved in an argument with other inmates. Officers handcuffed the man and escorted him out of the unit. The North Valley Complex also holds Clark County Detention Center inmates.

After leaving the unit, the man collapsed and was transported to North Vista Hospital where he later died, police said. The Force Investigation Team will release a report of its findings on the department’s website at the conclusion of the investigation, police said.

The identities and causes of the death will be released by the Clark County coroner’s office. Contact reporter Colton Lochhead at clochhead@reviewjournal or 702-383-4638. Follow him on Twitter: @ColtonLochhead.

CORRUPTION SCANDAL: Nevada Division of Tourism chose contractors without required competitive process


Claudia Vecchio, director of the Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs


CARSON CITY – An audit of the state Division of Tourism reviewed by state lawmakers on Monday found two cases where contractors were not selected through a formal competitive process as required by state law.

The review by the legislative auditor also found that the two contractors did not have formal state contracts.

Payments to the two contractors in fiscal years 2012 and 2013 totaled over $7 million.

Failure to have formal state contracts could leave the state exposed to unnecessary liability and costs, the audit said.Fraud

The Tourism Division, in its response, said it had a waiver granted in 2008 and other approvals to award the services without competitive bids.

But the audit found the agency did not follow the requirements of the waiver and other procedures.

One contractor, Creative Concepts, was selected in 2009 by the agency using its own request for proposals for television advertising. In 2012 and 2013, the contractor was paid more than $4.7 million for advertising, including over $708,000 in commissions. Continue reading

Protest Against Common Core Carson City, NV April 5, 2014

ImageProtest Against Common Core Event Date:  April 5, 2014 – 11:00am

“Eye on US Education” will be holding a rally opposing Common Core simultaneously in at least 13 states on Saturday 4/05/2014 at 11:00 AM.

The rally in Carson City will be held in front of the Legislature Building on Carson Street at 4th & 5th. Bring lots of signs and posters.

Common Core is a new standard intended to change the purpose, content and

methodology of K-12 education. It is coming to public, charter, private and home schools. There is no escape; textbooks, the SAT and the ACT will be “common core compliant.” State and federal departments of education are using “Every Child Left Behind” and “Race To The Bottom” grants to push it. Common Core is one of the pillars of 0bamaʼs “fundamental transformation.”


In previous years we had managed to get great turn-outs for a Tax Day rally or a Second Amendment rally. COMMON CORE IS FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN BOTH OF THOSE COMBINED. If the next generation is mis-educated and de-educated, all is lost.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.” ~ Ronald Reagan Continue reading

50th Anniversary of New York Times v. Sullivan



Are you aware of the ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court case Times v. Sullivan (1964) which states this, in part:

As Americans we have a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on Public Issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide open. And that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials.

Join the Newseum Institute and the American Bar Association for a special event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in New York Times v. Sullivan. A new book, “The Progeny: Justice William J. Brennan’s Fight to Preserve the Legacy of New York Times v. Sullivan,” tells the story of the late justice’s struggle to persuade a unanimous court to embrace the First Amendment doctrine established in this landmark case on freedom of the press.

Lucy Dalglish, dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, will talk with co-authors Lee Levine and Stephen Wermiel about the book, which draws from Brennan’s previously unreported papers and interviews with Wermiel. The book explores the collegial and sometimes contentious exchanges between justices of the Supreme Court as well as the line of 31 cases that deal with defamation and privacy aspects of First Amendment law decided since Sullivan was announced on March 9, 1964.

Militia at Bundy Ranch House Interview 04-13-2014 Nevada Governor 2014 David Lory VanDerBeek

MEET AMERICA’S REAL MINUTE MEN: THE CITIZEN MILITA. These men are NOT paid $100,000 a year like the BLM agents to steal property, harass and kill people, nor do they get “hazard” pay or overtime to do what they do. In fact, they have traveled thousands of miles from the other side of the nation at their own expense leaving their families and jobs behind to protect the Bundy Ranch. They do so knowing they may die. They do so to protect our nation from men like Harry Reid who would slaughter little children that you will see in the interview so his son Rory Reid can have a $5 BILLION CHINESE SOLAR POWER PLANT. In other words, Harry Reid would commit murder and theft to steal one rancher’s inheritance so he can give it to his own son. That is FACT. These men are here in Nevada to stop him. They deserve our respect, support, and admiration. If Harry Reid has his way, they will soon be dead unless we all rise up as Americans against this criminal tyranny. THE BOTTOM LINE HERE IS THAT HARRY REID WILL MURDER THESE CHILDREN SO HIS SON RORY REID CAN HAVE A $5 BILLION DOLLAR CHINESE SOLAR POWER PLANT. WHO WILL STAND WITH THESE BRAVE MEN TO STOP HIM? WHERE ARE THE REAL AMERICANS?

30 people have staged an anti-mining protest outside the headquarters of the Nevada Mining Association in Reno

ImageRENO, Nevada — Some 30 people have staged an anti-mining protest outside the headquarters of the Nevada Mining Association in Reno.

Bob Fulkerson of the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada says protesters, some of them holding signs, gathered during the protest Friday that coincided with Earth Day.

He accuses transnational corporations the mining association represents of causing environmental damage while “masquerading themselves as the Sierra Club.”

He says while the mining association wants Nevadans to believe the environmental impacts are “not so bad,” some of the toxins found around hard-rock mines in Nevada include mercury, sulfuric acid, ammonia and cyanide.

According to the mining association’s website, the mining industry strives to be a good steward to the environment and a good corporate citizen of the state while employing a well-paid workforce

Nevada Sucks = Nevada is among the most loathed states to live in

The Silver State doesn’t rank highly when it comes to places where people are excited to live.

A new Gallup poll puts Nevada at 10th in the nation (tied with South Carolina, New Mexico and Alabama) for the percentage of residents who think their state is the worst possible state to live in.

Seven percent of Nevadans think Nevada is the worst. Illinois had the highest rate of state-haters in the nation, at 25 percent, followed by Rhode Island and Connecticut at 17 percent each.

Gallup cites Illinois’ history of scandals and high-profile investigations and resignations as a probable reason for its residents’ perception of the state.


Here are the top 10 worst rankings:

  • Illinois: 25%
  • Rhode Island: 17%
  • Connecticut: 17%
  • Mississippi: 15%
  • Louisiana: 13%
  • New York: 12%
  • New Jersey: 10%
  • Maryland: 9%
  • Michigan: 9%
  • Nevada: 7%
  • Alabama: 7%
  • South Carolina: 7%

Nevada also didn’t rank highly among states where residents believe they are living in the best or one of the best states. Only 33 percent of Nevadans feel that way about the Silver State, 12th-lowest in the nation. Continue reading

Uncivil Nevada attorneys? State Bar task force is looking for a cure

CARSON CITY — That there appears to be a pervasive lack of civility in this modern world — from attacks in the political arena to Black Friday shopping melees to celebrity Twitter feuds — should surprise no one.

Now this perception of a breakdown in good manners appears to have hit the world of lawyers as well.

The State Bar of Nevada has established a civility task force to consider ideas on how to ensure that lawyers, often known for their tenacity on behalf of their clients, operate with the proper decorum both within and outside the courtroom.

Senior Judge Gerald Hardcastle, in an article on the subject published in 2009, put it this way: “Too often attorneys and litigants view the courtroom as the ultimate bar fight — a place where winning, at whatever cost, is the goal, and where the rules are: there are no rules.” Continue reading

Ex Elko NV sheriff hopeful Ronald Rylander won’t be charged with DUI

ELKO, Nev. (AP) — Prosecutors say they won’t file felony driving under the influence charges against a former Elko County sheriff candidate because his blood-alcohol level was below the legal limit.


Ex Elko NV sheriff hopeful Ronald Rylander won’t be charged with DUI

Ronald Rylander dropped from the race after his March 13 arrest on suspicion of felony DUI.

The arrest occurred near the county courthouse minutes after he filed his candidacy for sheriff.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports prosecutors declined to prosecute Rylander on the DUI charge after the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office forensic science division determined a blood test found his blood-alcohol level was at .078, just below the state’s legal limit of .08.

Police say two breath tests after his arrest showed his blood-alcohol level was at 0.81 and .091, both above the legal limit.

The 51-year-old Rylander has two prior DUI convictions in a seven-year span. Continue reading

> Net population change, 2010 to 2013: -2.16%
> Population change from peak (2000): +3.1%
> Unemployment: 9.5% (28th highest)
> GMP change, 2013: -1.3% (22nd lowest)

The Carson City metro area experienced considerable outward migration between 2010 and 2013. In that time, nearly 1,000 residents left the area, which had a population of slightly more than 54,000 last year. Natural population growth was also negative, as deaths outnumbered births in every year from 2010 onward. The significant population decline was likely due in part to the area’s poor economy. The area’s unemployment rate was among the worst in the country, at 9.5%, as was the decline in home prices over the five years prior to the end of 2013. Also, personal income barely grew between 2010 and 2012, rising just 2.2% a year, among the lowest growth rates in the nation.Still, people may return to the area if the economy improves. An October 2013 report by the Nevada State Demographer’s Office projects that Carson City’s population will begin growing in the future.

The Carson City Kid

The_Carson_City_KidThe Carson City Kid is a 1940 American film directed by Joseph Kane and starring Roy Rogers and George “Gabby” Hayes.

Roy Rogers (Roy Rogers, and not playing “himself” but playing a character named Roy Rogers), posing as The Carson City Kid, is seeking vengeance on Morgan Reynolds, the man who killed his brother. To find Reynolds in the gold towns, he systematically stops stagecoaches and goes through the mail, hoping to find letters addressed to Reynolds and thusly learn his whereabouts.

Thus “The Kid” earns the reputation of a stagecoach robber, although he never takes anything, and the reputation is enhanced by the fact that he travels with Laramie (Francis McDonald), a notorious half-breed outlaw. A posse is about to capture them and Roy rides back to get Laramie whose horse has been shot, and Laramie repays the favor by slugging Roy and escaping on his horse Trigger. Continue reading

About 100 people attended the second annual International Horse Rally in Carson City on Saturday, said organizer Patty Bumgarner of Dayton.

A musing on Facebook last year in which she wrote, “How I wish all states would get together on the same day and time and be heard as one voice,” led to a worldwide rally to protect wild horses.

More than 40 states and three countries joined together in an effort to stop wild horse and burro round-ups, auctions and slaughters. Now, Bumgarner said, it’s taken on a life of its own.

Nevada Appeal Newspaper reports: Carson DA moves to reinstate charges against Ty Robben

Carson DA moves to reinstate charges against Ty Robben

Taxpayer money spent on RETALATION

Taxpayer money spent on RETALIATION

By Geoff Dornan

The Carson City District Attorney’s office is moving to reinstate criminal charges against Ty Robben — including that he tried to solicit a hit man to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Two cases involving Robben were turned over to the Douglas County DA’s office after Senior District Judge Charles McGee in Reno disqualified the Carson DA’s office from handling them.

But two months after that ruling, McGee, of his own volition, entered an order saying he would reconsider that decision in light of an April opinion by the Nevada Supreme Court effectively reversing the precedent he relied on in disqualifying the DA. While McGee said he still has concerns, he would like to see the issue briefed and would consider reinstating the Carson DA’s office.

But in between his first order and the second one, issued April 15, Douglas DA Mark Jackson dismissed the solicitation-to-commit-murder charge as well as the libel, stalking and harassment charges filed in the first case. He said in the dismissal notices that there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

Putting Carson City back in charge would allow the office to refile the charges against Robben, including solicitation to commit murder, a Category B felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

In the request for reappointment, Assistant DA Mark Krueger emphasized that the Carson DA’s office “reviews the evidence provided by law enforcement and charges only those crimes in which the Carson City District Attorney’s office believes occurred and can be proven at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.”

However the Douglas DA Mark Jackson dismissed all 6 charges and counts due to lack of probable cause, the lower standard and the highest standard beyond a reasonable doubt.

Those charges included 3 felonies, gross misdemeanors and the most serious class B felony of solicitation of murder on a judge.

Levi Minor

Levi Minor admitted to shooting Judge Tatro’s frond door in December 2012.

The libel charged was dismissed because what Robben said was in fact, true.

Robben reported on his website that Carson City resident Levi Minor admitted to shooting Judge Tatro’s frond door in December 2012.

Robben reported the motive was that Minor’s mother, who also worked at the courthouse,  had an affair with Judge Tatro.

Robben confirmed that Minor told him this in person when he was in custody in the Carson City jail.

Judge Tatro also was offended when Roben made him look like the joker.

JUDGE TATRO JOKERjudge john tatro team

The bottom line and the facts are Robben did  not solicited murder on Judge Tatro, instead it was the other way around when Robben’s cell-mate (cellie) named Keith Furr attempted to solicit Robben. Robben informed his lawyers and the FBI about the situation prior to being charged. Robben could not report the incident to the Carson City Sheriff (CCSO) since they were the one setting him up. The CCSO would not respond to Robben’s inmate request forms and stole his legal papers. The CCSO still has Robben’s computers after the Douglas County DA has released the property.

The CCSO alleges Furr wore a “wire” to secretly record Robben in his cell conspiring with Furr to hire a hit man for a “roofing job”. The recording show Furr solicited Robben and Robben declined. Robben has recording to his lawyers on the phone telling them to contact the FBI immediately because the CCSO is covering up the Tatro shooting incident and they are setting me up with a guy selling me a hit man to kill Judge Tatro. Why would Robben be calling the FBI if he was going to have a hit man kill the judge?

hit man contract out for Judge TatroHowever, Furr later admitted to other inmates in jail he did not were a wire and instead the CCSO secretly surreptitiously listened to the conversations in the cell via the intercom system normally used for emergencies. The CCSO coerced Furr into saying he wore a wire and fabricated a header on the digital audio to make it appear Furr wore a wire. The audio was illegally edited which is tampering of evidence. jp tatro ruthless and toothless

The CCSO and DA needed Furr to allege he wore a wire in order for the evidence to be admissible in court. However, by fabricating the evidence and witness testimony, the CCSO and DA have actually committed crimes against Robben. Robben also said the CCSO listened to all his phone calls which is legal, however the CCSO also listened in on all his attorney conversations in the visiting area via the intercom system just like they did in his cell 24 hours a day. Everything was digitally recorded and mined for anything that could be used against Robben. Inmates are not entitled to privacy in jail, however the secretly surreptitiously recorded data would test the law and show how far the CCSO and Carson City DA went to set up Robben.

Kenny FurlongThe CCSO, DA and Sr. Judge Harold “Hal” Albright  (presiding over the cases due to conflict of interests with all Carson Judges and Justice of Peace including JP Tatro and JP Armstrong) dismissed all pending charges against Furr in order to coerce Furr to testify against Robben, however the audio shows Furr doing the solicitation.  Keith Furr has a long criminal record and is currently in jail in Lyon County for serious charges including arson.

Lyon County deputies have arrested a man they say was wanted on drug and stolen property property charges.

Deputies had been searching for 51-year-old Keith Wayne Furr of Dayton all weekend after receiving a felon warrant for possessing stolen property.

Around 9:45pm Sunday, they received a tip Furr was spotted at his trailer located in the 1000 block of Highway 50. When deputies arrived, they found Furr packing personal belongings into a vehicle. They say when he saw them, he ran away, and after losing him for a brief time, they found running east along Highway 50.

Furr was eventually arrested after a brief struggle.

During the investigation, deputies say an associate of Furr — 43-year-old Melanie Sandomierski of Dayton — was also arrested for harboring a fugitive for possession of a controlled substance.

Furr is charged with principle to possession of stolen property, resisting arrest, criminal contempt (Carson City Justice Court Warrant), possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of extended protection order.

Furr’s bail is set at $15,920 while Sandomierski’s bail is set at $12,500.

Carson City sheriff’s officers make numerous drug, misdemeanor arrests over weekend

Two men were arrested Sept. 27 and face felony drug charges after Carson City Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Team officers found methamphetamine in a console of a van. Both men denied the meth was theirs.

Keith Wayne Furr, 51, and William Dale French, 42, of Dayton were arrested in the 4900 block of Highway 50 East at 5:28 p.m.

According to the arrest report, an officer was patrolling eastbound Highway 50 near Sunrise Road when he noticed a Chevy van with an expired California plate traveling westbound. The officer followed the van to a mobile home park where it drove into a space. The men got out of the vehicle and went around to the back of a mobile home. The men were given instructions to stop what they were doing and put up their hands, which they didn’t do, each rummaging through their pockets, according to the arrest report.

French told officers that he was a passenger in the van and was just getting a ride. He stated that Furr saw the officer on Highway 50 and stated he knew it was a cop. French told officers that Furr was nervous and drove quickly into the mobile home park. He said they didn’t know anyone who lived in the mobile home park.

A K9 did a drug sniff of the yard of the mobile home park where the dog located a small amount of marijuana along with some cash near a grill. French was asked about the marijuana and he stated it was Furr’s and he is the one who hid it. Officers spoke with Furr who stated that French was the one with the marijuana and was hid it. Furr also stated he knew the officers who stopped him were part of the SET team from the sheriff’s office when he was driving on Highway 50, according to the arrest report.

Department of Alternative Sentencing assisted with the investigation as it was learned that Furr was on a list that allowed for searches. The K9 conducted the search of the van. In the van a hypodermic device was found along with a small amount of methamphetamine and another open bottle of alcohol in the middle console of the van, within reach of both men, the arrest report states.

Officers again asked both about the meth and hypodermic device. Furr said it belonged to French and French said it belonged to Furr, the arrest report states.

Officers then learned that the rear plate of the van had a valid 2014 registration sticker however the registration was expired as of 2010, according to California DMV. The plate was taken for evidence and later booked at the sheriff’s office for fictitious registration. Dispatched advised Furr did not have a valid license in Nevada or California.

Both men were booked. Furr faces the following charges: felony possession of methamphetamine, gross misdemeanor destruction of evidence. Misdemeanors include possession of marijuana, no valid driver’s license, expired registration, no proof of insurance, possession of a hypodermic device, violation of conditions, open container and fictitious registration. Bail: $11,179. French faces a felony charge of possession of methamphetamine and a gross misdemeanor charge of destruction of evidence. He also faces the following misdemeanor charges: Possession of marijuana, possession of a hypodermic device and open container. Bail: $6,874.

Carson City Sheriff’s Office report details initial arrest that led to recovery of 60 stolen weapons

More details have emerged following the arrest Friday of a Dayton man that led to Carson City and Lyon County authorities to recover approximately 60 stolen weapons, a stolen vehicle and narcotics. Three others were also arrested.

Keith Furr, 52, was arrested on charges of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, contempt of court and criminal contempt and is being held in Carson City with a bail of $23,500.

According to the arrest report, deputies were dispatched Friday at around 3 p.m. to the area of Clearview Drive and South Edmonds after a person called dispatch to advise there was a vehicle stuck on top of the next to Prison Hill.

When they were approximately 100 meters from the vehicle they observed Furr carrying a short-barrel AR-15 and a white metal carrying case.

When they were approximately 100 meters from the vehicle they observed Furr carrying a short-barrel AR-15 and a white metal carrying case.

The man immediately attempted to walk past the officers and appeared nervous, making movements like he was about to run from the officers, the arrest report states.

The officers asked the man who the gun belonged to and Furr said a man that he did not know handed the weapon and a case to him and told him to carry it to the top of the hill. Furr stated the man would meet him shortly thereafter, the arrest report states.

Deputy Kepler walked to the vehicle and checked the license plate through dispatch and advised the plate came back to a subject in Lyon County and then walked back to speak with Furr. As the officer returned, Sgt. Humphrey informed the deputies that Furr was a felon. Furr also admitted to this, the arrest report states. Deputy Kepler and Trotter took the man into custody at 5:12 p.m. for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm.

Dispatch advised Furr was on alternative sentencing, which then placed a hold on Furr for violation of conditions of probation and violation of a court monitored sentence.

Through the combined efforts Carson City Sheriff’s Office and Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, four people were arrested for felony and misdemeanor charges and parole violations. During the investigation approximately 60 stolen weapons, a stolen Chevy pickup with a camper shell and illegal narcotics were recovered, authorities from both agencies said.

Both Carson City Sheriff’s Office SET and Lyon County Gang Unit are still following up on leads to other crimes and suspects as a result of the arrests. Because of the investigation and leads into the case, the names of the three other suspects have not been released.

Krueger declined to comment on the filing, but the court document states that his office maintains “there has never been a conflict of interest” in the cases against Robben.

Robben, meanwhile, is taking his claims the office is unconstitutionally harassing him, violating his rights and covering up corruption in the Carson judicial system to the federal level.

He said he will sue the DA’s office and Krueger in federal court and that he has already been interviewed by the FBI.

See Robben’s website here:

Robben’s troubles began when he was terminated from the Department of Taxation. His appeals of the termination were rejected at every level.

Robben claims the termination was retaliation for exposing corruption in the Nevada Department of Taxation. The Las Vegas Review Journal newspaper did a story on Robben’s claims that the new $50 million dollar computer IT system had serious problems costing the State money. Robben also complained about other issues including the mine audits and personnel issues with other employees engaging in inappropriate behavior. Robben’s co-worker Morgan Canfield send numerous pornographic emails to other employees over the State email system and IT director Vince Cherpeski used inappropriate language and discriminated against employees. A Taxation employee other than Robben was so upset with Cherpeski they defecated on his desk!

Taxation Department losing tens of millions of dollars a year, ex-employees say

CARSON CITY — The state is losing tens of millions of dollars a year in tax revenue because of an inefficient computer system that prevents department auditors from reviewing the tax records of companies in a timely manner, according to two former Nevada Taxation Department employees.

Dino DiCianno explains everything

They place the blame primarily on a computer system that, while not antiquated, is slower and not user friendly, saying that a new system is needed.

The department’s annual report, released Jan. 15, shows 1.24 percent of businesses in the state were audited during the past fiscal year, almost half the total in the 2006-07 year, just before a new $40 million tax accounting system went online.

They also said that mismanagement by former Taxation Director Dino DiCianno has contributed to the department’s inability to perform more audits and that he deliberately stopped audits of the mining industry. DiCianno closed the agency’s Elko office in June 2010 as part of a cost-cutting plan by former Gov. Jim Gibbons, though the mining industry was booming and the auditor there could have recovered millions in unpaid mining taxes, they said.

DiCianno, who did not return a phone call seeking comments Tuesday, abruptly retired from state government in March, a day after telling legislators that mining companies had not been audited for two years because he lacked qualified auditors to check their records.

Taxation Department executives told legislators that the mining industry operated on a “self-reporting” tax system.

After DiCianno’s departure, new Gov. Brian Sandoval required the department to undertake mining industry audits.

That work produced $1.2 million in additional revenue from audits in the fiscal year that ended June 30, although the employees said much more could have been secured except for a three-year statute of limitations on unpaid taxes.

Still the employees and their union representative said far more revenue could be secured if the number of audits returned to the total of past years.

“It is our members’ assertion the total number of audits is down because of the computer and software system,” said Vishnu Subramaniam, executive director of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 4041. “Individuals have to pay their fair share of taxes. We should expect the same from Nevada businesses.”

Although no one was critical of his performance, new Taxation Director William Chisel did not return three messages left by the Review-Journal on his office phone over the past week and a half.

Sandoval, however, expressed support Tuesday for Chisel, adding it is the director’s plan to concentrate audits on companies where the returns can be greater.

“I will have a conversation with the director,” Sandoval said. “Mr. Chisel’s background is as an auditor. They are developing systems to go after the higher returning entities.”

Subramaniam arranged for the two former Taxation Department employees to speak with a Review-Journal reporter. They both requested anonymity.

One is still employed in state government. He said he told legislators before the meeting in March that DiCianno was not having the department audit mining companies.

He said he previously worked for a mining company and is proficient in auditing their records. Instead, he was assigned to audit businesses where the return for the state was far less.

This employee said no net proceeds of minerals audits were performed for 10 years.

“We did sales tax audits. We did business tax audits. We did everything but net proceeds of minerals,” he said. “I was stifled by Dino (DiCianno).”

The other source, who said he is familiar with the computer system, said, “It wasn’t right from the beginning. It has been completely dysfunctional.”

The system will not even properly add up numbers, he said.

As an example, he said the system software would show a 990 answer for adding up a group of numbers with an actual sum of 1,000. Replacing it with a new system would cost $100 million, he added.

Auditors for the Taxation Department do not need accounting degrees but can take a couple of night courses to qualify for the job, according to the former taxation auditor. He said pay is too low to attract highly qualified people.

According to the state Personnel Division, tax auditors are paid $39,108 to $69,029 a year, depending on their experience.

A person with a high school degree with previous auditing experience who has completed six credit hours of college accounting classes can be an auditor.

“I would always collect or recover five times or more what I earn,” he said. “The jobs pay for themselves.”

The annual report shows salary expenditures by the Taxation Department increased by about $450,000 to slightly more than $20 million a year in the past fiscal year.

Subramaniam said Sandoval needs to take the leadership to ensure the Taxation Department does more audits and businesses know they are being watched so they will pay their taxes, but with a 1.24 percent audit rate, businesses realize they can fudge their taxes with impunity.

“The least we could be doing is to ensure that Nevada businesses are paying their fair share in taxes — that they are paying what they’re supposed to be paying,” Subramaniam said.

Alison Ernst Who Threw Shoe At Hillary Clinton in Las Vegas Has Bizarre History With Aurora Shooter



Woman Who Threw Shoe At Hillary Clinton Has Bizarre History With Aurora Shooter Hillary Clinton shoe toss

A woman accused of hurling a soccer cleat at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a speech last week in Las Vegas reportedly has a bizarre history with accused Aurora shooter James Holmes.

James Holmes

Alison Ernst, 36, of Phoenix, was released from Clark County Jail with a misdemeanor disorderly conduct summons after the incident during Clinton’s speech for the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries on Thursday. Nearly two years prior to the shoe incident, Ernst appeared in a Colorado courtroom during one of Holmes’ appearances, claiming she had evidence that he was innocent of the Aurora movie theatre shooting, which killed 12 and left 58 wounded in July 2012, the New York Daily News reports.

After Ernst was removed from the courtroom she filed a motion alleging that Holmes was “mind-controlled” by a ring of “worldwide crooks.” The motion was later dismissed by a judge, the National Journal reports.

“Holmes is an innocent man. James Holmes must be released to me asap. This is a huge conspiracy,” read Ernst’s motion, which also alleged that a movie theatre chain owner was the culprit of the Aurora shooting and claimed he was part of a massive conspiracy led by a group that “want[s] to control the world through false flag attacks akin to George Orwell 1984 [sic].”

In another bizarre twist, Ernst later posted a preliminary injunction document to her personal website in which said she would seek a restraining order against Holmes, whom she claimed was possessing her mind.

“James enters my head like Dennis Quaid in ‘Innerspace’ and he zooms to my heart and plays with it and forces me to care for him,” the document read. “I seek a restraining order to stop Holmes from entering my mind through subliminal messaging and causing me to be obsessed with him on a daily basis.”

Ernst is due back in court June 24 for charges relating to the shoe-throwing incident.

The Progressive Cynic

© Josh Sager – April 2014


Humanity’s ability to create amazing inventions is an amazing asset that has turned us into the dominant species of this planet. We are able to cure diseases, achieve high-speed transportation, talk in real time across the globe, and even visit other planets/moons. Unfortunately, for every wonder that humanity creates, we also create terrible problems and inventions that threaten our way of life (ex. nuclear bombs, powerful drugs, chemical weapons, etc.).

Oftentimes, humanity’s ability to do or create something outstrips our ability to rationally assess whether or not it is a good idea to actually do/create it. This disparity has led to the death or oppression of millions over the years, and this problem only gets more extreme as humans collect even greater knowledge and technological ability.

Unfortunately, one area where our technology has vastly outstripped our judgment is that of surveillance. In recent years…
