More money from Carson City taxpayers to support the local “police state”

nevada is a police stateCity vehicles, including a decision to purchase new police cars for the Sheriff’s Office, will concern Carson City’s Board of Supervisors next week.

The board’s agenda for the first meeting in November on Thursday will include action to purchase six police vehicles through the Nevada state government competitive bid list for a not to exceed cost of $238,700. If that full amount was used, each vehicle on average would cost $39,783. The board last May signaled in the capital improvement budget for Fiscal Year 2015-16 it would make replacement purchases, so approval was anticipated.

Another agenda item will finalize a contract struck earlier with Geney/Gassiot, Inc., regarding the city government’s fleet facility expansion project.

Among other things, the project added office space and two maintenance bays in the existing fleet facility at 3303 Butti Way.

In another item dealing with public safety, the board is expected to accept a U.S. Justice Department grant from the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services for $375,000 for the formation of an official School Resource Officer Program in Carson City. Another grant for the Sheriff’s Office is for $41,000 from state government to be used regarding traffic enforcement.

Other grants expected to be accepted by the board include one involving the Hospital Preparedness Program for Ebola preparedness and response activities and another from the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office on behalf of the National Parks Service to provide for historic structures reports involving the Nevada State Prison. The latter grant is for $29,000 for historic structures reports at the decommissioned prison in Carson City.

In addition, the board will be asked to accept recommendations from the Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee on city redevelopment objectives, programs and project priorities for future uncommitted redevelopment funds.

As usual, the board meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. in the Carson City Community Center’s Sierra Room. Once again, the agenda includes no break for lunch and so the meeting is anticipated to end by mid-day.

#PoliceState Update: Thug cops use tasers to brutalize citizens

California Politics, California Political News


Searching for a way to curb fatal border shootings, Border Patrol leaders decided in 2008 that their agents needed a new weapon on their belts. The agency began to supply Tasers, a hand-held device that delivers a paralyzing electric charge, as a way to end confrontations quickly and safely. But in scores of cases along the border, the Tasers became instruments of excessive force, a Los Angeles Times analysis found.

Charges filed in altercation between Tesla guards, RGJ staff

Tesla NevadaRENO — Storey County prosecutors have charged a Reno Gazette-Journal photographer with misdemeanor counts of trespassing and battery, and a reporter with misdemeanor trespassing after an altercation with two Tesla Motors security guards at an industrial park east of Sparks.

The newspaper’s lawyer says the journalists were trying to leave the area when they were attacked by two guards on Oct. 9.

Photographer Andy Barron initially was booked on one trespassing count and two counts of felony battery with a deadly weapon after the guards told investigators he drove a Jeep into them, causing minor injuries to both.

District Attorney Anne Langer reduced the felony charges to misdemeanor battery counts when she filed the formal criminal complaint Wednesday in Justice Court in Virginia City. The complaint said the crimes occurred “at or near” the Tesla battery factory under construction at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center.

Deputy Ken Quirk wrote in his police report made public for the first time that Barron drove the Jeep “with a wanton disregard for life and property.”

Barron’s lawyer, John Arrascada, told the newspaper he intends to plead not guilty. The reporter, Jason Hidalgo, declined comment.

A pretrial conference is scheduled Feb. 4.

Tesla spokeswoman Ricardo Reyes said earlier the journalists had been warned about trespassing before.

“We are pleased that the district attorney has taken quick action and is pursuing justice for Tesla employees who were assaulted by RGJ employees trespassing on private property,” he said in an email Friday.

Scott Glogovac, a Reno lawyer representing the newspaper, said in an Oct. 19 letter to Tesla that the guards rammed the newspaper’s vehicle with an ATV, smashed a car window with a rock and cut Barron from his seat belt with a knife before throwing him to the ground.

Deputy Quirk said when he asked the two guards, Mike Ochs of Fernley and Ian Langtry of Reno, why they acted in the way they did that Ochs stated he feared for their safety and “determined that Barron’s reckless action needed to be stopped.”

Both journalists told the deputy the guards were overly aggressive, demanded they delete their photos and eventually rammed their Jeep with an ATV.

Quirk said Barron told him that Ochs “scared him so he was trying to get away,” didn’t see Langrty behind the Jeep and didn’t know he struck him. Quirk said Barron claimed he didn’t know they were on private property but Hidalgo admitted both willfully trespassed “to get closer for better pictures.”

– An enterprising TV camera managed to track down Catherine Cortez Masto at local Democrat headquarters yesterday and produced the rare footage below.

For those keeping track, this is the second interview Cortez Masto has done since announcing her candidacy…seven months ago.

And much like her last public appearance in mid-September, Cortez Masto stepped in it again – this time attacking her own absentee campaign strategy of avoiding voters and reporters at all costs.

“I think if you’re running for office in this state, then you should be out, involved in everything that’s happening in the community, be able to talk to people. You know it’s not just the political events you go to, or the dinners, it’s actually getting out and talking people one-on-one and letting them see you and get to know you personally.”

Catherine “the cunt” Cortez Masto

While Cortez Masto is admirably criticizing her own chronic disability to answer questions about important issues, the missing candidate hasn’t exactly been an open book. Her own website reveals she has failed to take a position on a number of issues that have been debated in Washington in recent weeks, including:

And that’s just in the last few weeks. Let’s not forget about Cortez Masto’s absentee status on other important issues:

  • It took nearly two months for her to commit to a position on the Iran nuclear deal.
  • She was repeatedly unable to answer questions about which elements of the deal she finds concerning.
  • She won’t say whether she’s supporting Hillary Clinton.

Here’s hoping Catherine Cortez Masto takes her own advice and actually, you know, starts talking to people at some point.

MSNBC Apologizes After Accidentally Telling the Truth About Israel


From AntiMedia, by Kit O’Connell, Oct 2015

Before MSNBC’s apology, pro-Palestinian activists praised the segment as a rare instance of mainstream media honesty about Israeli occupation.

New York, NY — Earlier this month, MSNBC aired a well-known, but controversial graphic that illustrates how Israel has taken over Palestine as the occupation of the region has grown over time.


The graphic, which appeared during an Oct. 15 discussion between MSNBC anchor Kate Snow and Martin Fletcher, a Middle East correspondent, shows a series of four maps dating from 1946 to the present that depict the loss of Palestinian territory to Israel.

During the segment, Fletcher discussed the ways that Israel’s provocative behavior at Al-Aqsa Mosque is a major trigger for the latest violence in Gaza and the West Bank, then Snow introduced the graphic as it appeared on screen, saying: “What does that show you, Martin, that the area Palestinians are living…

PATRIOT-Act-podcastIf you haven’t already, now’s the time to get out your party hats to celebrate the 14th anniversary of the USA PATRIOT Act.

You know about the law, I’m sure; passed barely six weeks after the 9/11 attacks, the USA PATRIOT Act is one of the most sweeping, liberty-destroying pieces of legislation in American history.

Remember the rule of thumb: the more high-sounding the name of a law, the more disastrous its effects. And the USA PATRIOT Act absolutely conformed.

It stands for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Interdict and Obstruct Terrorism.

And this name is truly disingenuous when you think about it.

Seriously, how was America to become more ‘united’ by allowing warrantless searches, vastly expanding the powers of secret courts, and completely doing away with entire sections of the Constitution?? That’s just absurd.

By the Numbers: Presidential Candidate trips to Nevada

Riley Snyder

NV candidatesThough it’s one of the first states to hold a presidential nominating contest, Nevada’s outsized role in presidential politics isn’t reflected by the number of candidate visits to the state. By my count (and with the help of my former AP colleague Michelle Rindels) there’s only been 55 presidential candidate visits to Nevada in 2015. While that seems large, candidates made more (59) trips to Iowa and New Hampshire (71) in September and October alone, according to the National Journal’s 2016 Travel Tracker.

But there is reason for optimism – as the caucus moves closer, candidates (including Ben Carson) are promising to spend more time in the state. Here’s three quick takeaways from ten months of collected data on Nevada presidential visits:

The US Spends $35 Billion In Global Economic Aid (But Where Does All This Money Really Go?)

peoples trust toronto

The United States provided approximately $35 billion in economic aid to over 140 countries in fiscal year 2014.

In the map below, the relative size of each country is proportionate to the aid received from the United States and the color of each country indicates GDP per capita.


Clearly, not all aid is distributed equally. The question is: Who received the largest slice of the pie from the U.S.? From the map above, the answer is clear: Israel.

Of the $35 billion of total economic aid distributed, almost a quarter of funds went to five countries. Below are the top 5 recipients of economic aid in 2014.

  • Israel: $3.1 billion
  • Egypt: $1.5 billion
  • Afghanistan: $1.1 billion
  • Jordan: $1.0 billion
  • Pakistan: $933 million

Harry Reid endorses Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House

Harry Reid, Sanctuary Cities, American sovereignty, and Insanity

Mastersen's Musings

Senate Democrats just blocked a proposed bill that would deny so-called “sanctuary cities” federal funding to the extent such cities openly undermine federal laws regarding our nation’s borders (emphasis added below).

The legislation blocked in the Senate stems from the July 1 shooting of Kate Steinle in San Francisco. The man accused of killing her, Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, was in the country illegally despite a long criminal record and five prior deportations.

Because San Francisco is a sanctuary city for illegal aliens, local police released Sanchez despite a request from federal immigration authorities to keep him behind bars. A short time later, Kate Steinle was dead. <, link>

BEN CARSON: INTENSIFY THE DRUG WAR Says police state necessary to combat “hedonistic activity”

st_louis_police_brutalityby KURT NIMMO | INFOWARS.COM |

Presidential candidate Ben Carson told Glenn Beck that if elected he will intensify the war on drugs. He also said he opposes the legalization of marijuana.

“Absolutely,” the retired neurosurgeon said when asked by Beck if he intends to continue the war on drugs. “I intend to fight.”

According to a Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll, Carson is now the Republican frontrunner. His favorability stands at 28%, 9 percentage points ahead of Donald Trump’s 19%.
In 2010 alone the federal government spent over $15 billion combatting the use and distribution of illegal drugs, while state and local governments spent $25 billion.

The same year police around the country made 1.5 million arrests for drug violations. Arrests for possession of marijuana accounted for 48.3 percent of these arrests, according to FBI statistics.

In 2012, FBI data shows, police made one marijuana arrest every 42 seconds.

Earlier this week a Gallup poll found 58% of American adults believe marijuana should be legalized. Last year the number was 51%.

Alaska, Colorado, Washington and Oregon and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for recreational use while twenty-three states have legalized the use of medical marijuana.

Despite public support for marijuana legalization, as president Carson would work to keep drugs illegal. He would spend more federal money and dedicate more law enforcement resources to enforcing drug laws and imprisoning offenders.

“I don’t think this is something we really want for our society,” Carson told Greta Van Susteren of Fox News in 2014 after Colorado legalized recreational marijuana.

“You know, we’re gradually just removing all the barriers to hedonistic activity. We’re changing so rapidly to a different type of society, and nobody is getting a chance to discuss it because it’s taboo.”

After Van Susteren pointed out that many Americans believe making marijuana illegal restricts freedom of choice, Carson compared its use to owning an automatic weapon.

“Well, do those same people argue for freedom of choice when someone says, ‘I want to buy a gun, I want to buy an Uzi?’” Carson said. “Let’s be consistent with this thing.”

Las Vegas police face civil rights lawsuit over medical marijuana arrests

nevada potBy Carri Geer Thevenot

A former Las Vegas woman claims she and a guest were falsely imprisoned in 2013 after police searched her home and illegally confiscated her supply of medical marijuana.

Courtney Rogalski, a medical marijuana patient who now lives in Canada, and California resident Westley McNeal filed a civil rights lawsuit in August against the Metropolitan Police Department and several officers. In September, the defendants transferred the case from Clark County District Court to U.S. District Court.

Attorney Craig Anderson, who is representing Metro in the litigation, could not be reached for comment.

According to the lawsuit, Las Vegas police detectives searched Rogalski’s home on Aug. 30, 2013, with a warrant signed by Justice of the Peace Cynthia Cruz.

The detectives found 382 grams of marijuana, or about 13 ounces, and 32 marijuana plants. Rogalski was arrested and charged with two felonies: possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.

“Ms. Rogalski, at the time of her arrest, held a valid medical marijuana card and had a valid medical marijuana waiver which allowed her to have in her possession, custody and control 15 ounces of usable marijuana and 49 marijuana plants,” according to her lawsuit.

Without such a waiver, Nevada law limits cardholders to 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana and 12 plants.

“The malicious prosecution against plaintiff Rogalski was dismissed because she was acting within the law, was a registered medical marijuana patient with a valid medical marijuana card and a valid medical marijuana waiver,” according to the lawsuit. “She did not exceed the amounts contained in her medical marijuana waiver and this fact was not disputed by the defendants.”

According to the lawsuit, Detective Jeffrey Tabor authored the search warrant, which indicated that he established surveillance in May 2013 at a hydroponics business and watched as a 50-pound carbon dioxide tank was loaded into a vehicle registered to Rogalski.

About three months later, Tabor compared the power use at Rogalski’s home with three other homes in her gated community and found her home used an average of 3,698 kilowatts more per month than houses the same size.

In addition, Tabor drove past Rogalski’s residence on Aug. 27, 2013, and noticed that the windows on the east side of the home were covered with white plastic.

Tabor’s affidavit in support of the search warrant “is approximately 10 pages long and contains numerous paragraphs that have absolutely nothing to do with the criminal case” involving Rogalski, according to the lawsuit, which names Tabor as a defendant.

The search warrant also noted that Rogalski had a valid medical marijuana card and that she was legally allowed to possess and cultivate marijuana. And because Rogalski had a valid card, according to the lawsuit, police “had no reason to arrest a guest found in her house.”

“There was no controlled buy in the underlying criminal case, there was no odor or smell of marijuana coming from the residence, there was no foundation for the power comparison analysis and as can readily be seen after a reasonable review of the search warrant affidavit, there was absolutely no probable cause to support the issuance of a search warrant in the criminal case,” the lawsuit alleges.

The fact that Rogalski may have had plastic covering her windows “is of no consequence,” according to the lawsuit, which notes that Nevada law “specifically provides that legal marijuana use or cultivation cannot be exposed to public view.”

In an answer to the lawsuit, filed Wednesday, the defendants argue that they “acted in good faith belief that their actions were legally justifiable” at all times.

Attorney Cal Potter III, who represents Rogalski and McNeal, argues that Las Vegas police were not properly trained about the requirements of Nevada’s medical marijuana laws and “didn’t seem to care.”

The lawsuit claims Rogalski, who has chronic osteoarthritic problems, “was 100% within her rights to possess the marijuana and the plants in this case and the detectives should not have ripped up and thrown away her medical marijuana waiver.”

According to the lawsuit, police illegally confiscated Rogalski’s legal growing equipment and marijuana, then destroyed her property. The lawsuit further alleges that McNeal was arrested without probable cause and that the Clark County district attorney refused to prosecute him.

After McNeal’s release, according to the lawsuit, police “continued to follow and harrass” him.

The Budget Deal Is A Disaster For The GOP

Reclaim Our Republic

Boehner isn’t “cleaning the barn” for the next Speaker , he’s leaving a bigger mess
boehner Obama GOP
OCTOBER 28, 2015 By David Harsany

Grassroots conservatives have many unrealistic expectations and political objectives. And then sometimes they have a good point.

The new budget deal arranged by John Boehner and Democrats — approving $50 billion of additional spending in 2016 and $30 billion in 2017 — will be split between domestic discretionary programs and defense. Cuts will supposedly take effect in 2025, by which time this deal is likely to be buried under a dozen budget debates and a trillion dollars of bad memories for fiscal conservatives.

We’re told the reason for GOP capitulation is that Boehner, acting selflessly, is about to “clean out the barn” for a RINO Paul Ryan speakership. Implicit in this argument is the idea that this kind of budget agreement would normally be a no-brainer, but the crazies…

Feds Expand Area 51 by Taking Family’s Property Federal Judge Miranda Du decided to take the land from the Sheahans after the Air Force argued private land ownership in the area was no longer compatible with security and safety concerns connected with their training and testing.

Area 51, NevadaBY:

A federal judge signed an order stripping a Nevada family of their property overlooking Area 51 and handing it over to the United States Air Force on Friday.

The order comes a month after the Sheahan family, who owns the property and the mine located on it, refused a settlement offer from the government that offered to buy the land for $5.2 million.

“I have a geologist friend who I took out there, who’s just a buff, and he said it is literally almost priceless,”  Barbara Sheahan told CBS 8. “There is so much there, not only the ore, which is in the ground that can be mined but in all the intrinsic value of what’s on the land.”

The property, located next to the Air Force base at Groom Lake that’s commonly referred to as Area 51, has been in the Sheahan family since the 1870s. The family had no interest in selling it to the Air Force despite the large amount of money offered.

Federal Judge Miranda Du decided to take the land from the Sheahans after the Air Force argued private land ownership in the area was no longer compatible with security and safety concerns connected with their training and testing.

The family said the use of eminent domain was just another example of government abuse they’d faced.

“This has been, like I said, a 60-plus-year nothing short of criminal activity on the part of the federal government, the AEC, Black Ops, CIA and you can go on and on,” Joe Sheahan told the news station. “There’s nothing fair, there’s nothing anything remotely close to that involved in this process.”

“But there never has been either, so it’s nothing new,” Barbara Sheahan added. “But we would like to change it at least to get our stuff out and be paid the value.”

A jury will now decide how much compensation the Sheahans will receive for their land.


“[N]othing short of criminal activity on the part of the federal government…”

Watch: The Groom Mine Family spoke to Infowars last month about how the federal government was trying to force them off their land which has been in their family since the 1870’s. During the interview, family members describe bombing raids, 50 caliber machine gun assaults and open air nuclear testing all done by our federal government in order to scare the Sheahans off their working mine:


Last month, the Sheahan family was facing eviction threats from the U.S. federal government for refusing a $5.2 million buyout to vacate their 400-acre mine near Area 51 that has been in their family since the late 1800s. And it’s now official: a federal judge’s pen officially took the land and handed it over to the United States Air Force.

The family resisted the initial offer saying the property is worth far more because of the rich ore it contains but also the buildings, mining equipment, and the unique history of the property, which still holds the remains of past family members. An agreement has yet to be worked out as to where the bones will go.
A News Channel 8 report states the family has asked for a jury trial to determine what the Air Force will have to pay for the contents of the property. Though the USAF valued the acreage at only $1.5 million, they offered nearly five times as much to the family. The report states that “the issues will be limited” in a jury trial as to what financial responsibility belongs to the Air Force.
“This has been, like I said, a 60-plus year nothing short of criminal activity on the part of the federal government, the AEC, Black Ops, CIA and you can go on and on,” said Joe Sheahan.

For now, the family will continue its efforts to receive a proper valuation of their property; one that has survived nuclear blast testing in the ’50s and ’60s, as well as building damage from a jettisoned engine from an aircraft.

“There’s nothing fair, there’s nothing anything remotely close to that involved in this process,” Sheahan said. “But there never has been either, so it’s nothing new. But we would like to change it at least to get our stuff out and be paid the value.”

Feds: Efforts to block sage grouse protection could backfire

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Attempts by rural Nevada counties, mining companies and others to block new U.S. policies intended to protect the greater sage grouse could backfire on the critics and ultimately force the reconsideration of a recent decision to keep the bird off the list of endangered species, federal land managers warn.

Justice Department lawyers representing three U.S. agencies say it took an unprecedented effort by officials in 11 western states from California to the Dakotas to persuade the Fish and Wildlife Service last month to reverse its 2010 conclusion that protection of the grouse was warranted under the Endangered Species Act.

The new finding was based on assumptions that added protections in the land-planning amendments being challenged will be carried out to ensure the grouse no longer is threatened with extinction, they said in a brief filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Reno.

Any injunction blocking implementation would “diminish the protections for sage grouse … undo four years of collaboration and could undermine FWS’ finding,” U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden wrote.

U.S. District Judge Miranda Du has set a hearing for Nov. 12 in Reno to consider granting a preliminary injunction blocking the amendments.

Elko and Eureka counties and others filed the lawsuit on Sept. 23 — the day after Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced the listing decision. The Wyoming Stock Growers Association also is suing in federal court there, and Idaho’s governor has signed onto a separate lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C.

The Nevada lawsuit says the plans could run mining companies and ranchers out of business, block construction of a wind energy project that could bring Elko County $500 million and deny firefighters and law officers access to existing roads during emergencies.

Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt added his name to the lawsuit last week — over the objections of Gov. Brian Sandoval — along with Churchill, Humboldt, Lander, Lincoln, Pershing and Washoe counties in the state.

The government, in its first formal response, says the opponents misrepresent and exaggerate the potential effects. It says they have proven no irreparable harm and are challenging prematurely the planning-level amendments that offer guidelines but render no specific decisions on individual grazing, mining or other federal permits.

“They allege speculative injuries that will come to pass, if at all, only after future site-specific decisions are made,” Bogden wrote. He especially challenged claims the protections could restrict use of thousands of miles of existing roads and threaten public safety by inhibiting the travel of emergency responders.

“The amendments do not close any existing routes,” Bogden wrote. “But even if they did, the agencies’ regulations exempt emergency vehicles from OHV (off-highway vehicle) restrictions.”

The lawsuit accuses the government of “attempting a massive management change” for more than 20 million acres of public land in Nevada without proper environmental review — nearly 3 million acres where new mining claims are prohibited for at least two years and more than 16 million acres subject to what the lawsuit calls onerous travel restrictions.

The two-year freeze on some new mining claims was triggered by Jewell’s proposal last month to withdraw 10 million acres of public lands in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming under the 1872 Mining Law, which was passed then to encourage the development of lands in the western U.S.

But Bogden said the proposed withdrawal is subject to “valid existing rights and has no immediate effect on mining operations.” It’s subject to public comment through Dec. 23.

Likewise, nothing in the guidelines themselves would prevent construction of the $500 million China Mountain Wind Energy Project in Elko County, he said. “Elko’s County’s speculation that ultimately it will not be approved is not an imminent injury,” Bogden said.

The lawsuit says the government inappropriately dismissed Elko County’s plan to increase livestock grazing as a way to bolster grouse habitat by slowing the growth of vegetation that fuel wildfires.

Las Vegas police will pay more than $80,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a woman who said officers detained her for two hours in The Cosmopolitan after falsely accusing her of being a prostitute.

A federal judge U.S. District Judge Miranda Du wrote that the case showed Metro’s prostitution sweeps in casinos were overly broad and threatened people’s constitutional rights.

Chentile Goodman was released without charge after the 2011 incident and filed a lawsuit later that year.

The $82,500 settlement of her case was approved this week by Metro’s Fiscal Affairs Committee, an oversight board of two Clark County commissioners, two Las Vegas City Council members and a citizen member.

In her lawsuit, Goodman said she had picked her friend Ayda Mosafer up at the airport the night of Feb. 9, 2011, and the two were planning to meet Goodman’s boyfriend for a late dinner and drinks.

In court filings, police said undercover vice officers were at The Cosmopolitan that night because it was known to be “overrun with prostitutes.”

Two of the officers, Sgt. James Signorello and Detective John Segura, spotted Goodman and Mosafer near the elevators. Police said Signorello recognized Mosafer from her arrest on suspicion of prostitution days earlier at the Spearmint Rhino strip club, where both Mosafer and Goodman worked.

Goodman said Segura approached her and asked if she knew where he could have some “fun.” By both sides’ accounts, the women showed no interest.

Despite that, the detectives identified themselves as police, asked for the women’s phones and said they needed to talk to them in the casino security office, Metro’s lawyers wrote in a court filing.

Goodman’s lawyer, Robert Nersesian, said she has never worked as a prostitute in her life. The women told the officers they were on their way to meet Goodman’s boyfriend at The Henry, a 24-hour restaurant in the hotel.

Goodman said the officers grabbed her and Mosafer by the arms, seized her cell phone and purse and took the women to the security office, where they were held and threatened with arrest. Goodman said police called her “whore” while holding her.

“LVMPD has developed a policy and practice of broad-scale prostitution sweeps in public casinos in a manner that threatens the constitutional rights of the women they target,” U.S. District Judge Miranda Du wrote in a 2013 order granting some of Goodman’s claims.

“As evidenced by Goodman’s detention and arrest in February 2011, the imprecise nature of Vice’s undercover activity results in a chaotic atmosphere that portends serious constitutional violations in cases where officers fail to appropriately assess the suspicion of their targets, all without appropriate checks on individual officers’ actions. The Constitution requires more.”

Du ruled police had no “reasonable suspicion” of criminal activity that justified detaining Goodman, which made the search of her purse and seizure of her phone unconstitutional.

That ruling was overturned in June by a federal appeals court, which said the case should go to trial “because the facts here are so thoroughly disputed, and the resolution of the federal claims depends entirely on who is believed.” After that, the two sides held a settlement conference and agreed on the $82,500 payment.

Goodman also sued the owners of The Cosmopolitan, arguing casino security officers improperly helped detain her. Nersesian said the casino and Goodman reached a settlement, but he would not elaborate. The Cosmopolitan declined to comment.

Metro’s public information office didn’t respond to a request for comment Tuesday on the lawsuit settlement.

In a court filing, Metro lawyers said the detectives were justified in detaining Goodman for several reasons, including that she worked at a strip club, was “dressed provocatively” at 2 a.m. and was seen near the hotel elevators, which police said called “a known area for loitering for prostitution.”

Du, the judge, wrote that such vague standards could “scoop up many, if not most, women visiting the Cosmopolitan at the time.”

Goodman’s lawyer, Nersesian, said he thinks the detectives’ explanations were invented after the fact. Asked why he thinks the officers really stopped his client, he said: “They just go into these places and sweep everybody they think looks hot.”

Goodman, who is in her early 30s, is now living in another state and working as a nurse, Nersesian said. She could not be reached for comment.

Goodman’s lawsuit said the incident caused her emotional distress, and her lawyer said it took courage for her to pursue the lawsuit in hopes of changing police behavior.

“We have a constitution for a reason,” Nersesian said. “One of the biggest reasons is so that good people aren’t swept up in bad situations. And from my perspective … this was a glaring example of the failure to recognize constitutional limits, sweeping in a good person and causing her great harm.”

FBI Manufacturing Anarchist Domestic Terror Threats?

Truth Axis

The New York Post reports that the FBI has released an alert warning of an anarchist plot to ambush cops on Halloween.

The extremist group – known as the National Liberation Militia – has proposed a “Halloween Revolt” that encourages supporters to cause a disturbance to attract police and then viciously attack them, the FBI said.

The group has recommended that members wear typical Halloween masks and use weapons such as bricks, bottles and firearms, according to the release.

It’s a well known fact that the government and FBI are directly responsible for most high profile “terror” plots in the US. Usually these plots involve mentally ill or marginalized muslim youths who are recruited by FBI informants and armed with fake weapons. Maybe anarchists have been deemed enough of a “threat” to make them the a bigger target for police state repression.

This was the new raw deal.

Americans voted with blinded appeal.

OH YES THEY DID: House Republicans Formally Move to Impeach IRS Commissioner

pundit from another planet


“Commissioner  violated the public trust. He failed to comply with a congressionally issued subpoena, documents were destroyed on his watch, and the public was consistently misled.”

“Impeachment is the appropriate tool to restore public confidence in the IRS and to protect the institutional interests of Congress. This action will demonstrate to the American people that the IRS is under repair, and signal that Executive Branch officials who violate the public trust will be held accountable.”

Chewbacca Arrested Driving Darth Vader To Polls In Ukraine; Emperor Palpatine Wins City Council Seat

peoples trust toronto

As much as we’d like to believe in the fairytale that the seeds of democracy can take root anywhere in the world at any time as long as the will of the people is strong, that just isn’t the case.

Sometimes, the circumstances surrounding “elections” just aren’t conducive to the perpetuation of the democratic process and attempts to derive anything meaningful in terms of divining the preferences of the electorate are hopelessly complicated by questions about the integrity of the polling process.

Take Syria for instance, where some are now suggesting that Bashar al-Assad may hold elections even as the country’s years-old civil war still rages. And then there is of course Turkey, where President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has done virtually everything in his power to subvert the democratic process on the way to ensuring that one way or another, AKP will win an absolute majority in parliament.

Well, now…

gun smokeMike Willden, chief of staff to Gov. Brian Sandoval, confirmed Friday the governor’s office asked Carson City to eliminate the seven or eight parking spaces on Musser Street at the north side of the capitol.

Asked why, he said, “safety.”

But asked whether there had been a threat or something else to raise concerns, Willden said, “no.”

Those parking spots were mainly used by people parking for just a minute or two while dropping off paperwork and other materials at the city offices, constitutional offices or the governor’s office.

They also were used by vendors and others providing different services such as heavy loads of bottled water and soda for the vending machines at both state and city buildings.

There’s the city-state public parking lot across Musser Street but those parking spaces are normally all taken by 9 a.m. As a result, people making deliveries may have to park up to two blocks away now the curbing is red-striped.

In addition, one employee said that was the only parking place available for the frequent tour buses that bring visitors to the capitol.

City officials said the request came directly from the governor’s office, not from the Capitol Police.

Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt keys focus on federal overreach

Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt gave an overview of his office’s mission and watchdog responsibilities toward the federal government’s overreach at Wednesday’s Churchill Economic Development Authority Business Council Breakfast.

The state’s 33rd attorney general, who won election in 2014 against Ross Miller, is the nation’s youngest. During his campaign, 15 of 17 Nevada sheriffs endorsed Laxalt. Churchill County District Attorney Art Mallory, who introduced the attorney general, said Laxalt has been a man who “does what he says” and is following through on his campaign pledges.

“He stands up for rural Nevada, he cut the deadwood in his office and trimmed the budget,” Mallory said of the state’s top law enforcement officer.

Once he was elected, Laxalt said he began assembling a team of attorneys and support staff to make the attorney general’s section the top legal office in the state. By taking an active role in the office shortly after the election, Laxalt said he revised the AG office’s budget, thus allowing him to hire a solicitor general from Montana.

“The solicitor general needs to be able to wake up every morning on guard and (thinking) what to do with the federal government,” Laxalt said.

Furthermore, Laxalt said the attorney general is the only state constitutional office holder who focuses on the constitutional system and Federalism, the relationship between the states and United States government.

“Churchill County (and other rural counties) are affected by the government’s overreach,” Laxalt said, adding he will use the state’s power to protect its citizens.

Laxalt cited the recent ruling earlier this month from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that opposed the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Water Rule that broadened the federal government’s reach over millions of acres of private land that are regulated by the states. Laxalt said Nevada joined 12 other states to oppose the new rule that would allow the EPA to manage any body of water to include creeks, ponds and lakes as navigable waterways.

“The federal government did not have authority to make a new definition,” Laxalt said of the EPA’s rewriting of the Clean Water Rule.

While the states won a decision at the first level, Laxalt said the EPA’s overreach could advance to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Laxalt, who has come under fire from various groups over his stand on immigration, joined other states challenging President Barack Obama’s executive order dealing with immigrants who illegally come into the country. Laxalt said the president is not going through Congress.

Laxalt also touched on the Second Amendment and the number of briefs filed. He is particularly concerned about new laws being made in California, for example, that could have an effect on Nevada. Both states are in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

He said California is “looking at a silly law” that would dictate concealed weapons must stay in the home.

Another overreach Laxalt and his fellow attorneys general from the western states are pursuing is the federal government’s stand on possibly designating more protected habitat for sage grouse.

“We gave the federal government an alternative … and the federal government is not interested,” Laxalt said.

Depending on the outcome, he said any decision would affect Northern Nevada and portions of Churchill County.

“If the federal government goes too far,” Laxalt said, “the AG can sue on behalf of its citizens to protect our state and them.”

Woman Dies During Cryotherapy Treatment

Conspiracy Theory Digest

A Henderson, NV woman is dead tonight after apparently using a cryotherapy chamber at her place of employment, Rejuvenice. Since Chelsea Ake-Salvacion, dead at 24, was operating the machine on her own personal recognizance and was not using the cryotherapy device for work purposes, OSHA will not conduct an investigation. Cryotherapy is not FDA regulated. No clinical study has studied risks or benefits to cryotherapy, in which liquid nitrogen around -200 degrees Farenheit envelops the body or face of the customer and is purported to have positive health and beauty outcomes. Chelsea Ake-Salvacion is the first known death related to cryotherapy treatment.

Autopsy and toxicology reports are expected to provide the precise cause of death within six to eight weeks.

Mormon Nevada judge Robert Clive Jones in trouble again with 9th Circuit – behaved in a way to suggest “the appearance of justice” is imperiled in his courtroom.

Nevada judge in trouble again with 9th Circuit

It looks like the workload of U.S. District Judge Robert C. Jones will be a little lighter than it was last week.

That’s because the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has reassigned a voting-rights case to a different judge because of mistakes Jones made.

“The errors made by the district judge [Jones] may suggest to a reasonable outside observer that reassignment ‘to maintain the appearance of justice’ is necessary,” a three-judge panel wrote.

And this isn’t the first time Jones’ conduct has come up for scrutiny before the 9th Circuit, either. In cases covering issues from gay marriage to election law, he’s behaved in a way to suggest “the appearance of justice” is imperiled in his courtroom.

This time around, the National Council of La Raza and two branches of the NAACP sued Nevada, claiming social welfare agencies were not signing up clients to vote as required by federal law.

Jones initially balked at allowing non-Nevada attorneys to practice in his courtroom, although the state didn’t raise any objections. Instead, he said the lawyers were representing their own interests rather than their clients’ interests.

Then Jones ruled the plaintiffs lacked standing without allowing them to amend the original complaint. “Such an action by the district court, it hardly needs saying, was unusual,” the 9th Circuit concluded.

Oh, it needs saying, your honors.

Finally, Jones ruled the plaintiffs failed to provide adequate notice to the state before filing the lawsuit. The 9th Circuit said this didn’t even make sense: “It hardly serves plaintiffs’ voter-registration purpose to delay notification of the state, for the sooner the state comes into compliance, the more voters will be registered.”


Although the 9th Circuit acknowledged cases are only reassigned in “rare and extraordinary circumstances,” judges concluded this was one.

But is it rare or extraordinary, really?

In 2012, Jones handled the case of Sevick v. Sandoval, in which several same-sex couples challenged Nevada’s constitutional ban on gay marriage. Jones had no problem hearing the case, or signing his name to a ruling that rebuffed the plaintiffs and upheld Nevada’s constitution.

Of course, the 9th Circuit overturned his ruling and sent the case back, with orders to Jones to allow same-sex couples to marry in Nevada. But instead of following the law, instead of fulfilling the duty of his office, Jones chose that moment to recuse himself.

Robert Jones was Kim Davis before it was cool, apparently.

Jones is also the judge who engaged in a war of words with 9th Circuit judges over a case involving Nevada’s unique ballot option, “none of these candidates.” Republicans sued to remove that choice from the 2012 ballot, fearing disaffected members of the GOP would choose “none” over real person Mitt Romney.

Jones ruled in favor of removing “none” and ordered the state not to print ballots with that option on them. The state was ready to appeal, but with the printing deadline fast approaching, Jones still hadn’t entered his order.

Jones had “deliberately attempted to avoid entering any order that would allow an appeal before that [ballot printing deadline],” wrote 9th Circuit Judge Stephen Reinhardt. “His dilatory tactics appear to serve no purpose other than to prevent the state from taking an appeal of his decision before it must print the ballots.”

Once Jones entered his order, the 9th Circuit quickly reversed, but not before Jones in writing objected to Reinhardt’s characterization of his actions. It was — what’s the phrase? — rare and extraordinary.

So perhaps it’s not such a bad thing that Jones’ docket is a bit lighter these days. At least, to maintain the appearance of justice.
