No Mask Nevada or Replace Greg Hafen?

I was shocked this morning when I received this email from No Mask Nevada PAC. I like most Nye County residents have been staunch supporters of this organization and it’s events, especially here in Pahrump.

Biden mangles Constitution with out-of-date quote

President Biden addresses Congress (Getty Images via ABC) Joe Biden graduated law school 76th out of 85 students in 1968. Maybe he hasn’t bothered to keep up with the status of jurisprudence since.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation released …

Defending the Constitution From the ‘Living Constitutionalists’

“Originalism” means applying the Constitution as the Founders understood it. Originalism is just a modern name for how English and American judges and lawyers have read most legal documents for at least 500 years (pdf). By respecting the understanding behind a document, originalism keeps the document alive. By contrast, there’s no simple definition of “living constitutionalism” because “living constitutionalists” differ greatly...
