Maybe the people of Nevada should keep this in mind and the next time those vote-beggars go out looking for their support, they should turn their back on every one of them.”
After last week’s edition of the Las Vegas Tribune was distributed I was told of another reason why Governor Brian Sandoval did not go to the RNC Convention in Cleveland, Ohio; I was told by a very reliable source on the Democrat side that the reason Sandoval did not go to the convention was because he was afraid that a terrorist attack might have happened during the week-long convention where Donald Trump was being nominated as the Republican candidate for president of the United States.
Well as much as I dislike our RINO (Republican in name only), I hope my source is wrong and that the governor did not go to Cleveland for political reasons, “so they would not upset the Master Nevada Puppeteer, Harry Reid,” as we reported last week — and not because the Nevada Governor is a coward and is afraid to be attacked by terrorists.
If the governor is afraid of facing terrorist attacks, how will he behave if unfortunately our worldwide famous city is faced with a
terrorist attack? Will he be side by side with our law enforcement personnel, or will he be under his bed in the governor’s mansion? Hopefully we will never have to find that out.
For my part, I cannot think what is worse: a traitor, a liar governor, or a cowardly head of state.
The rest of the Nevada delegation, it is obvious, are a lucky bunch of vote-beggars who waited so long to show their true colors, and now no other Republican is running for office to give the Nevada constituents a choice to still vote Republican and not betray the party, as they all do.
For my part I hope I still have some clout with the editorial board and that they will listen to me when I say that we need to turn our backs to Senator Dean Heller for being part of the official group of mercenary politicians that want to bow to the bloody government of the Castro brothers.
Yes, I know that “Cuba is not the only communist country with an embassy in the U.S. China, Laos and Vietnam come to mind,” wrote a Las Vegas Tribune reader but none of those countries had and still carry such a tight relationship with Cuba.
For many years both neighbor countries — the USA and Cuba — maintained a social, cultural, and economic environment like none other; Cuba was one of the most faithful yet unreciprocated allies the United States ever had or will have.
The reader who commented on an Alexandra Cohen article that was published one year ago believes that “The same can’t be said of some of the other communist countries with flag-flying embassies on US soil,” but none of those countries are only ninety miles away from the USA.
None of those countries has ever been so loyal to the United States as Cuba once was; and none of those countries had ever been as influencial in facilitating the success of American businesses as Cuba has been.
This space happens to be my space; it is my column and as the name of this column clearly states it is My Point Of View (my opinion) and as long as I live under the stars of the American flag and the Constitution of the United States, I am entitled to my opinion, to the right to express my personal point of view.
And the fact that I own this newspaper, these rights multiply several times, giving me the right to have My Point of View on the front page of the most independent newspaper in Nevada, as well as perhaps many other places in this great nation.
I started this newspaper eighteen years ago after I became one more victim of police corruption, judicial misconduct and government abuse; back then I put my money where my mouth was and today without money I am still putting my blood into a voice for those who are victims of the government’s corruption that exists in our wonderful city.
Before the Las Vegas Tribune started writing about people like Ron Mortensen, Kirstin Lobato, Jessica Williams, Manuel Menendez, Donovan Joseph, Ron Brady Jr., Dagmar Diaz, Paul Rockenwell, Oswaldo Lopez, and Brian Lepley, we never met any of them; some of them we only know from their voices because we have only talked to them on the telephone, yet they have become part of the Las Vegas Tribune family through the years.
Once we made a media request to visit Ron Mortensen in person and the Nevada Correctional Facility transfered him to Ellis Prison to make it difficult to visit him due to the fact that we are a small entity and we cannot afford to close the office to go out to visit someone.
This newspaper is to serve the community and to fight for the rights of any human being that is abused or mistreated by corrupted officials, criminal or now civil, as in the case of Clark Feeley.
As I once said, with all the years I have been in Las Vegas (60 to be exact) and with all the people in the right places that I have met during all those years, I could be a very popular, well-connected and perhaps even a little powerful man IF I would only have been a “yes” man and agreed with whom ever was in office …but that is not me.
