44 Percent of Texans Think U.S. Military Might Be Coming to Impose Martial Law

Well, JustFuckMeOnceAgain...

Joint Bulgarian US military training

The multistate training operation Jade Helm 15 will begin next month, and plenty of Texans still seem to think that this is all an elaborate ruse and the federal government is about to take over Texas — a state that is already part of a larger country that the federal government oversees. It wasn’t clear how many people thought that the U.S. military was building tunnels under abandoned Walmarts FEMA camps. Thanks to a new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll, we now know that the answer is: “More than a few!”

Forty-four percent of Texas voters — including 31 percent of Democrats — think that it is very or somewhat likely that the federal government is sending troops to Texas and other states so it can impose martial law; 43 percent think it is likely that the federal government just wants to take their guns.

Police Officer in Sioux Falls has Driving Malfunction

Dakota'z Liberty Watch

Sioux Falls Finest

6-28-15 Sioux Falls, SD By Devin Saxon. A couple of photographs recently surfaced on Facebook showing a Sioux Falls Police Officer attempting to ram a metal rail to death with her squad car. It is unclear if tax-payers will be footing the bill on an account of this rail jumping out in front of this officer’s patrol car. Certainly Sioux Falls’s finest are not the culprits of this collision in any way, shape or form, it must have been the inanimate object’s fault somehow. Perhaps this officer swerved out of the way of a school of ducklings, or dodged a family of kittens, saving their lives, and in the process remodeled a random alleyway-railing downtown.

The photographs appear to have been taken near a parking ramp on Dakota Ave. Unfortunately there’s no word yet on whether or not the warm fuzzy cuddly creatures this officer must have swerved out of the way to protect…

How do you change the way people think? You start by changing the words they use

“If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it…. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information. Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without moving. And they’ll be happy, because facts of that sort don’t change.” ― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Reid Wants UNLV to Change Their Nickname

Tom Darby's Notebook

Symbols of the Confederacy are finding new criticism in the aftermath of the shooting deaths of nine churchgoers June 17 in Charleston, South Carolina. Advocates for removal say the public placement of Confederate flags, and now statues of Confederate figures, could imply an official endorsement of the separatist movement based at least in part on the embrace of slavery.

Now, Nevada’s Senator Harry Reid is adding his voice to the list.

He said that University of Nevada, Las Vegas should change the “Runnin’ Rebels” nickname. He claims its based on a Confederate Civil War soldier.

Founded in 1957, UNLV positioned itself as the Southern counterpart of the more established University of Nevada, Reno and its Wolf Pack mascot. And while the first version of the mascot was a cartoon wolf dressed in a Confederate-styled uniform and named Beauregard, it was abolished in 1976 following complaints from Black athletes.

Burning Questions At “Burning Man”

CBS Las Vegas

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Federal Bureau of Land Management officials are defending their request for special housing accommodations for agency officials during the annual Burning Man counterculture festival in Nevada.

They dispute comments by Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nevada, and others that the plans are unnecessary and extravagant.

Burning Man organizers have refused the request, saying amenities such as flush toilets, washers and dryers, showers, air conditioning and refrigerators at the bureau’s on-site camp in the Black Rock Desert would cost $1 million and hike its permit fees to about $5 million.

Gene Seidlitz, the bureau’s Winnemucca district manager, said Sunday that the cost of the portable units is being exaggerated by organizers and the special compound will offer basic amenities only for top agency officials who oversee the event held the week leading up to Labor Day.

SCOTUS Won’t Hear Case On Voter ID Laws, Liberals Rejoice

But you still need your ID for ObamaCare. And any Democrat events you attend.

SCOTUSSee, Kansas and Arizona have state laws, which require a person to show their identification when applying to vote with the “federal forms.”From Roll Call

The case, Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al., was about whether Arizona and Kansas could require voters to prove their citizenship when registering to vote with the so-called “federal form.” Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach led the suit against the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, which was an appeal of a lower court decision.

But that’s just too much to ask, you know.

But the U.S. EAC denied the states’ requests to have their citizenship laws applied when would-be voters use the standardized federal form.

Basically, the Supreme Court refused to hear a certain election case. Which basically means the lower court ruling stands.

Las Vegas Man Accused Of Threatening Obama

CBS Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Federal authorities in Nevada say they arrested a Las Vegas man with seven registered guns and charged him with making Facebook threats to harm President Barack Obama.

Records show that 55-year-old Tyrone Paul Ponthieux (Pont-THEE’-ew) was arrested last week on a sealed criminal complaint that also accuses him of possessing weapons and marijuana with intent to sell.

The complaint was unsealed following Ponthieux’s arraignment Friday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.

It cites posts from November 2014 calling for shooting “out of control congressmen and senators and Obama” and of using a tree chipper to finish the job.

Ponthieux’s lawyer, Bill Gamage, says Ponthieux has a First Amendment right to make comments about politicians.

Ponthieux is being held in federal custody pending a preliminary examination of evidence July 10.

Burning Man Organizers Push Back Against BLM Request For Cushier Digs For Gov’t Officials

CBS San Francisco

RENO (CBS/AP) — Burning Man festival organizers are pushing back after the U.S. Bureau of Land Management requested upgraded accommodations for its officials at this year’s event in the Nevada desert.

The federal agency asked for flush toilets, washers and dryers, hot water, air conditioning, vanity mirrors, refrigerators and couches at its on-site camp, called the Blue Pit, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported Friday. The toilets are also to be cleaned daily by Burning Man staff.

Festival leaders have refused the request, saying those amenities alone would cost $1 million and hike its permit fees to about $5 million. Burning Man holds the largest special-recreation permit in the country, but its cost has steadily increased in recent years. In 2011, the permit fees were $858,000.

Judge blasts government for seizing $167,000 from man in Nevada who was driving too slow


From the Raw Story, by David Edwards, Jun 2015

A federal judge accused the U.S. government of a “lack of candor” and ordered it to return $167,000 that was seized from a man who was stopped for a minor traffic violation.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a Nevada state trooper stopped Straughn Gorman’s motor home on Interstate 80 in January 2013 for allegedly driving too slow.

After Gorman declined to let the trooper search his vehicle, the trooper let him go without a citation. But the trooper radioed ahead for a Elko County sheriff’s deputy to perform a second stop with a drug-sniffing dog.

The dog alerted the deputy to something suspicious in the motor home, and $167,000 was found hidden throughout the vehicle. Gorman’s money was turned over to federal authorities to initiate civil forfeiture proceedings, but he was never charged with a crime.

Today, nearly everyone acknowledges that our criminal justice system needs fixing, and politicians across the spectrum call for reducing prison sentences for low-level drug crimes and other nonviolent offenses. But this consensus glosses over the real challenges to ending mass incarceration. Even if we released everyone imprisoned for drugs tomorrow, the United States would still have 1.7 million people behind bars, and an incarceration…

Nevada falls 16 spots to No. 45 in CNBC’s rankings of top states for business

Nevada SucksBy Brian Deka (contact)Friday, June 26, 2015 – 5 p.m.

A cable news channel this week released its rankings of the nation’s top states for business, and the results were not kind to Nevada.

The state fell 16 places to No. 45 in this year’s CNBC rankings, which evaluate states based on factors such as infrastructure, education, quality of life, economy and the cost of doing business. The study ranked Nevada 46th overall in 2013 and 29th last year.

“The Silver State offers a ready supply of employees, but the workforce is tarnished by the worst education system in the country,” the report said.

Nevada plummeted in multiple categories from 2014 to 2015:

• From 14th in workforce to a tie for 27th.

• From 19th in infrastructure to a tie for 33rd.

• From 21st in economy to 47th.

• From 35th in technology and innovation to 45th.

• From 15th in access to capital to a tie for 43rd.

States received points based on their rankings in each metric. A point weighting was assigned to each category based on how frequently it is used as a selling point in state economic development marketing materials, CNBC said.

Thus, the study was meant to rank the states based on the criteria they use to sell themselves.

Scott Cohn, a special correspondent for CNBC, said the workforce category played a bigger role in this year’s study because it has been the most widely mentioned selling point for states.

CNBC added metrics in the category, including worker productivity based on economic output per job, states’ investments in workforce development, and net migration of skilled workers in and out of the state, Cohn said.

As a result, there were sizable moves in the workplace category for a number of states, including Nevada.

“Your state does well in several metrics within the category — for example, Nevada is one of the best states at hanging on to its skilled workers,” Cohn said. “Also, the high unemployment rate is a positive in the category because it means there are lots of available workers. However, Nevada’s workforce is one of the least educated in the country, and the state lags the nation on its investment in workforce development.”

On infrastructure, Cohn said Nevada’s bridges are among the nation’s best, but the study found weakness in the drinking-water and wastewater systems based on the anticipated need for repairs.

For the economy category, although the state continues to add jobs at one of the highest rates in the nation, overall economic growth has cooled and lags the national economy, Cohn said. Consumer spending has slowed, and so has the housing market.

“This was the category behind Nevada’s big surge in our rankings in 2014, but it seems to have reversed course to some extent this year,” Cohn said.

Nevada was ranked low in the technology and innovation category because the state is in the bottom tier for research funding in agriculture, health and science, he said. Nevada also ranked 31st for new patents last year.

“Tech business creation seems to have slowed too, possibly because of the sluggish economy,” Cohn said.

As a result, the study found, less business capital flowed into Nevada than a year ago.

The top five states in the rankings were Minnesota, Texas, Utah, Colorado and Georgia. The five states ranked lower than Nevada were Louisiana, Alaska, Rhode Island, West Virginia and Hawaii.

Minnesota ranked second in education and third in quality of life. Hawaii ranked last in cost of living and cost of doing business. It also ranked 49th in infrastructure.

CNBC said it calculated its rankings using input from business and policy experts, government sources, the CNBC Global CFO Council and the states themselves.

Any observer immediately knows the animal ultimately cannot succeed but certainly is frightened by the noise and crashing that it can sustain for a considerable time.

2 Rescued From Mine Shaft Near Lake Mead

CBS Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two people were rescued from a mine shaft near Lake Mead after they reported a rattlesnake in their path.

National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover said both were out and safe as of 12:15 p.m.

Officials said a man and a boy were reported trapped with a rattlesnake blocking their exit about 10 a.m. Friday in a mine shaft near Ore Car Mine off of Northshore Road.

Rescue crews first made verbal contact with the pair around noon and they said they had water and protein bars.

Medical units are at the scene for treatment if needed.

The site may be in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area or federal Bureau of Land Management jurisdiction.

Las Vegas police and Henderson firefighters were also called to the scene.

It’s the worst-ever such accident in French history. The radio astronomers were heading up to the top of a 2,600 metre high peak, where an array of giant dishes scour the heavens for distant objects. They were going to stay there for a week.
But just before the 20-minute ride was to end, their cable-car came crashing to the ground.

Officials said no tourists were aboard the gondola. They ordered an investigation into what caused the crash. So far, it looks the car disconnected from two of its three cables.

The impact from the 80-metre drop into the valley killed all the passengers instantly. Traveling Along with the scientists were construction workers, a cleaning crew, and phone technicians. Many of the victims were locals from St. Etienne-en-Devoluy, the small village below.

Leaking Las Vegas: Lake Mead At Record Lows, “We Have To Change”

This is it, warns one water advocate, “it really does (make critical) the fact that we have to start changing.” Lake Mead water levels have sunk to their lowest levels on record (below the levels when the dam was built) at 1075 feet. This is a major problem, as USA Today reports, since Las Vegas water authority’s current “straws” glean water from 1,050 feet and 1,000 feet – leaving the first straw just 25 feet away from pulling in air.

Freddie Gray’s death was a homicide, autopsy confirms

News for the Revolution

By Kevin Martinez
June 25, 2015
World Socialist Web Site

The death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, an event which provoked massive protests and unrest, leading to a police-military occupation of Baltimore by 5,000 National Guardsmen, was an act of homicide caused by police officers, an autopsy report leaked by an anonymous source to the Baltimore Sun confirmed.

The loading of Gray into a cage inside a police van by the Baltimore police, where he was left with feet and wrists shackled and without any safety belt, exposed the young man to lethal injuries sustained while the vehicle accelerated and decelerated. Gray suffered neck and spinal injuries comparable to someone who had dived into shallow water, the medical examiner concluded.

The autopsy report was completed on April 30, one day before Maryland State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced criminal charges against the six police officers who detained Gray. The driver of the…

SCOTUS Ruling On Same-Sex Marriage Mandates Nationwide Concealed Carry Reciprocity

If you’re following any of the various media outlets this morning, you’re probably aware that the U.S. Supreme Court has just extended gay marriage to all 50 states. The Supreme Court ruled Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry nationwide, in a historic decision that invalidates gay marriage bans in more than a dozen states. Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court’s ruling on Friday means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage. The outcome is the culmination of two decades of Supreme Court litigation over marriage, and gay rights generally. You can peruse the full ruling here, but the meat of the activist Court’s over-long decision hinges on a single paragraph. The Court used Section 1 of the Fourteen Amendment to…
