HELL NO! LAS VEGAS’ McCARRAN INTL. AIRPORT TO BE RENAMED HARRY REID INTL. AIRPORT IF BILL GETS PASSED FRIDAY – CALL CARSON CITY AND SAY NO!
NO WAY! Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport would be renamed Dirty Dingy Harry Reid International Airport if bill gets passed. Reid called for McCarran’s name to be removed from the Las Vegas airport in 2012 – because he wanted his name instead. Why not just call it Las Vegas International Airport, because that’s what it really is and that’s what people call it.
CARSON CITY — Taxpayers will not be on the hook if supporters of Harry Reid are successful in getting the Las Vegas airport renamed for the former U.S. senator.
An amendment to a bill from state Sen. Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, seeking to rename McCarran International Airport as Harry Reid International Airport says any costs of such a change must come from private donors.
Senate Bill 174 to rename the airport will be heard by the Senate Government Affairs Committee on Friday. It could be contentious given the polarizing effects of Reid’s Senate tenure on Nevada voters.
“I’ve gotten a little bit of push back on Harry Reid, but not as much as I thought,” Segerblom said. “I think we will have a very positive hearing.
“To me he symbolizes modern Nevada,” Segerblom said. “When he started that was the old Nevada. And he really grew with Nevada and at the end of his career he really led Nevada.”
First elected to the U.S. House in 1982, Reid served two terms before being elected to the Senate. He assumed the leadership role after Sen. Tom Daschle lost re-election in 2004. Prior to his more than three decades in Washington, Reid served in the Nevada Assembly and as Nevada’s youngest lieutenant governor at age 30 when he was elected in 1970.
Senate Minority leader Harry Reid sent this letter to FBI Director James Comey a day before Hillary Clinton sent out a tweet about the wiretap, accusing the FBI of withholding ‘explosive information’ linking Trump and his advisors to the Russian government.
“In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government – a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity,” he said. “I wrote to you months ago calling for this information to be released to the public…and yet, you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.”

CHUCK SCHUMER WARNS TRUMP: BETTER NOT PICK A CONSERVATIVE SUPREME COURT NOMINEE !…EXCUSE ME, TRUMP IS NOT A SPINELESS GOP WHO WOULD WITHER AND COWER UNDER YOUR DEMOCRAT THUGGERY!
Speaking with Chuck Todd on NBC’s Meet the Press, incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told Donald Trump he better pick a non-ideologue ( meaning a liberal ) for Supreme Court nominee or else he would suffer the wrath of Senate Democrat caucus by using filibuster.
I hope that President Trump picks a mainstream candidate,” the senator responded. “A mainstream candidate is someone you may not agree with on every issue, but basically believes in precedent and basically believes in following the law.”
“If he doesn’t nominate a mainstream candidate, we’re going to go at him with everything we have … because this is so, so important,”
The thing is, Harry Reid abolished the filibuster for judicial nominees in 2013, after Senate Republicans successfully blocked the nominations of Nina Pillard, Patricia Millett, and Robert Wilkins to the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. All three were eventually confirmed.
“I really do believe that I have set the Senate so when I leave, we’re going to be able to get judges done with a majority,” Democrat Harry Reid told Talking Points Memo in the weeks before the election as part of a broad-based interview about his legacy.
Now it’s GOP’s turn and outgoing Nevada Senator Harry Reid better not throw his liberal tantrum.
