GOING ON HIATUS
I will be flying out to Milwaukee first thing tomorrow morning and will be holed up in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District for the next 10 days helping conservative challenger Paul Nehlen try to unseat House Speaker Paul “RINO” Ryan in the August 9 GOP primary race.
As such, don’t expect many Muth’s Truths between now and then. I’ll get out what I can, time permitting.

So here’s my summary on the Tale of Two Conventions…
In Cleveland, Republicans told the nation things about Donald Trump that we never knew.
In Philly, Democrats told the nation things about Hillary Clinton that were never true.
That in mind, Crooked should get a YUGE bounce out of her convention. Which will make Trump’s landslide in November all the more impressive.
On another issue, let’s talk about what Trump said about possibly leaving NATO…
“You always have to be prepared to walk. It doesn’t mean I want to walk. And I would prefer not to walk. You have to be prepared, and our country cannot afford to do what we’re doing.”
You see, this is the difference between a successful businessman and a politician.
Any businessman or entrepreneur knows the absolute truth of that statement when it comes to negotiations. Unless you’re willing to walk away from the deal, you’re negotiating from a position of weakness.
Our NATO allies – up to this point – have known there’s no way the U.S. would take its ball and go home. So they’ve stiffed us and walked all over us.
Trump, with his position, is simply putting us back in the driver’s seat – where we belong since we’re the ones doing most of the heavy lifting.
Make America Great Again. Never Hillary.

P.S. According to liberals, you should have voted for Barack Obama because he’s black and Hillary Clinton because she’s a woman and that’s OK.
But if that kind of race- and gender-voting is OK for the left, why shouldn’t conservatives vote for Donald Trump because he’s a white male, hmm?
The reality, however, is that most conservatives don’t play that. If the choice was between, say, Condoleeza Rice and Bernie Sanders, conservatives would vote for the black woman over the white dude every day ending in “y.”

NEVADA NEWS & VIEWS
Do You Know Fumo?
As regular readers know, I am officially #NeverRINO this election cycle. Meaning I won’t support any candidate who voted for the largest tax hike in history last session no matter what.
That’s especially true for rathead-in-a-Coke-bottle Assemblyman Derek Armstrong in Henderson.
The guy ran as a fiscal conservative who would oppose tax hikes, only to become Majority Leader Paul Anderson’s personal valet and man servant (the same job “Li’l Nate” Emens has for Speaker-of-the-Weak John Hambrick). He then greased the skids for shoving that $1.4 billion tax hike up our collective wazoos as chairman of the Taxation Committee.
I’m no fan of liberals, but I hate a liar. And Armstrong is a world-class lying weasel.
As such, I met with his Democrat opponent, Ozzi Fumo, today. We actually found some common ground – including, surprisingly enough, on some aspects of taxation and criminal justice reform.
Plus, his campaign team – Ronni Council and Charity Stevens – are two of my favorite Democrat political operatives on the planet. I don’t particularly care for some of their clients politically, but Ronni and Charity are both “good eggs.”
So Republicans who also hate liars should give Fumo a look in District 29. As Democrats go, I’ve met FAR worse.
But why bring former Assemblyman “Johnny O” Oceguera and Gov. Brian Sandoval into this conversation, right?

Misleading Stadium Poll Actually Shows Surprising Support for Las Vegas Dome
(Chuck Muth) – A group of investors, including Sheldon Adelson and the Las Vegas Sands, are trying to put a deal together to build a new state-of-the-art domed stadium near the Strip that, they hope, will result in the NFL’s Oakland Raiders football team relocating here.
The exact location and funding formula have not yet been finalized, but proposals so far have included somewhere in the neighborhood of $500 million in public financing for construction of the estimated $2 billion project.
To put that in perspective, Gov. Brian Sandoval and the Nevada Legislature gave more than double that amount in tax breaks – $1.3 billion – to billionaire Elon Musk to bring his Tesla battery manufacturing operation to northern Nevada; something Musk said this week was needed just to show “we cared.”
And Tesla can’t even run a prevent defense!
Anyway, even though the funding formula hasn’t been set yet, KTNV-TV 13 released a poll conducted by Rasmussen this week that shows 55% of respondents oppose using tax dollars to build the stadium.
However, the question was rather questionable.
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“(As Secretary of State), Hillary Clinton reset the relationship with Russia, and since then, (Vladimir) Putin has been pushing us around all over the world.” – Ex-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani
“This is, essentially, a one-person presidential race. It’s Hillary against Hillary. This November is about whether Americans can look at 40 years of Clinton chicanery and nearly a decade of broken Obama promises, and still pull the lever for her. . . . Tim Kaine’s many assurances that he ‘trusts’ Mrs. Clinton was the campaign’s public acknowledgment that almost no one else in the nation does.” – Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal
