(Chuck Muth) – In a recent letter-to-the-editor published by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, David Lyons – speaking pretty much for all of us – wrote…
“I found a gas receipt from a station (in Las Vegas) from October 15, 2020 when I paid $2.39 a gallon. I needed gas last week and went to the same place and had to pay $5.29.”
The next time you’re filling up your car at the gas station – and pondering a second mortgage to pay for it – don’t forget, or let anyone else forget, who’s responsible…
- Democrats control the White House
- Democrats control the US Senate
- Democrats control the House of Representatives
- Democrats control both of Nevada’s US Senate seats
- Democrats control 3 of 4 of Nevada’s congressional seats
- Democrats control the Nevada governor’s office
- Democrats control the State Senate
- Democrats control the State Assembly
- Democrats control 5 of 6 statewide constitutional offices
- Democrats hold every one of Clark County’s commission seats
They all supported putting decrepit Joe Biden in the White House. They’ve all supported his war on domestic energy – especially the Keystone pipeline. And they all supported his “blue state bailout” that’s driven inflation through the roof, especially in Nevada.
The Senate is evenly divided, 50-50. If either of Nevada’s Democrat U.S. senators had withheld their vote on crucial pieces of bad legislation, we wouldn’t be in the shape we’re in today.
Ditto Democrat members of the narrowly divided House.
At the state level, it’s simple. Democrat Gov. Steve Sisolak could have called a special session months ago to at least temporarily cut Nevada’s ridiculously high gas tax to provide Nevadans some relief at the pump. He didn’t.
And Democrats in the Legislature, absent action by the governor, could have called themselves into a special session to help Nevadans. They didn’t.
Other Democrat elected officials could have spoken up publicly against Biden’s far-left policies and pushed the White House to move in a more rational direction and called for a special session. They haven’t.
So the current miserable state of economic affairs in Nevada is all on them…every last one of them.
I think the philosopher Eric Cartman of South Park put it best when he said, “Democrats p*ss me off!”
With that said, don’t forget…
Donald Trump lost Nevada by 33,000 votes in 2020.
But 112,000 REGISTERED Republicans stayed home and didn’t vote in that election.
Unless you want to see four more years of Gov. Steve Sisolak’s Reign of Error, you better vote this time around and vote for Joe Lombardo.
Remember in November.
BREAKING: Sisolak Loses Teachers’ Union
Citing ongoing problems with teacher shortages, violence in the classroom, and the “2 years of lost education (students) will never get back” due to the Sisolak Shutdown, the Clark County Education Association (CCEA) announced this morning that it “cannot support Steve Sisolak for reelection.”
“This moment requires State Leadership to step up,” the union noted after several interviews with the governor. “We expected to hear a plan to address these issues over the next four years; and we did not.”
Since he’s a Republican, the CCEA also isn’t endorsing Joe Lombardo. But that was never expected. On the other hand, getting blown off by “the largest educator union in the country” is a dagger right through Sisolak’s heart.
When you’re a Democrat and lose the CCEA…

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“The goal of government is to make criminals’ lives harder, not easier. Steve Sisolak has done the opposite, and we’re going to fix that … because you’re going to have a subject matter expert in the office of the governor.” – Republican gubernatorial candidate Sheriff Joe Lombardo
“Biden is holding onto the military vaccine mandate even after he said the pandemic is over. And even after the vaccine’s effectiveness has not lived up to the hype.” – Columnist Debra Saunders
“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue & stoke anti-white racism.” – Former Democrat congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard
