The REAL Clark County Republican Central Committee…some 500-strong, court-approved, Trump-backed, and RNC/Nevada GOP-recognized… held its first meeting under the new leadership of Chairman Jesse Law at the
Ahern Hotel Tuesday night.
And they actually got a lot of productive business done… including electing a new slate of executive board members who have this crazy idea that the party’s job is to, you know, elect Republicans rather than fight over bylaws and Roberts Rules of Order.
Meanwhile, a few dozen members of the Legion of Zoom — the renegade faction of losers from the previous administration misled by tax-hiking RINO Steve Silberkraus — met virtually and elected, by just a 4-vote margin, Nevada State Sen. Carrie Buck as their new chair.
Sorry, that dog won’t hunt. The court has spoken. The Nevada GOP has spoken. The Republican National Committee has spoken. The members have spoken. It’s Jesse’s law now.
What I can’t understand is why Sen. Buck continues to associate herself with this farcical renegade clown show. She should have followed vice-chair candidate Byron Brooks’ lead and withdrawn her candidacy, especially after the writing was on the wall following the latest court ruling.
Sen. Buck is now “chair” of an illegitimate, rogue splinter group that no one in authority recognizes, has no power or influence, and no support among rank-and-file GOP party activists. What in the world is she thinking? How embarrassing.

Dean “Never Trump” Heller came out of the gate swinging for the fences against Steve Sisolak in his campaign announcement for governor last Monday.
Wonderful, but, um… where’s he been for the last year and a half? Sisolak assumed dictatorial control over the State of Nevada on March 17, 2020 when he essentially declared martial law and bequeathed upon himself “emergency” powers that, among other things, proclaimed most workers and private sector jobs in the state to be “non-essential.” Where was Dean?
Sisolak shut our schools, shut our churches, shut our small businesses and screwed tens of thousands who couldn’t get their unemployment benefits thanks to his administration’s incompetence. Where was Dean?
Sisolak ordered us to stay home and not hold weddings, graduation parties, birthdays, sleep-overs, play dates and even Thanksgiving dinners. Where was Dean?
Mask on. Mask off. Mask on. Mask off. We’re open. We’re closed. We’re open. We’re closed. Mandatory vaccine passport to keep your job or even go to a football game! Where was Dean?
Near impossible to find. Like Waldo. And the Invisible Man. Never was heard a discouraging word. He just let Sisolak systematically destroy people’s jobs, lives and livelihoods, while stripping away constitutional rights, without a peep of protest.
But now we’re supposed to believe he’s the GOP’s “white knight” who’s gonna gallop in and save us?
