While appearing with talk show host Josh Bernstein, Nevada Senate candidate D’Nese Davis wondered why the Bureau of Land Management, also known as the BLM — the federal agency that has caused so much conflict with ranchers and land owners in the west — is not just armed, but heavily armed.
“Why are they so heavily armed?” she asked.
She also wanted to know why agents with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other government bodies are armed.
Davis and Bernstein spent considerable time discussing the land issue, and observed that some 85 percent of Nevada is owned by the federal government.
Davis, a member of 2 Million Bikers to D.C., said that originally, the federal government was only supposed to own 10 square miles of land — the area designated as the District of Columbia.
They also discussed veteran’s issues, with Bernstein saying that 22 veterans commit suicide each day due to a variety of reasons including PTSD. Davis, who noted the number is more like 28 per day, said she was working to get a piece of legislation passed that would allow the firing of VA workers who fail to see to veterans’ needs.
Right now, she added, “there is no accountability” for government workers in agencies allegedly designed to help veterans.
Sometimes, she said, these workers are simply moved to a different department and not fired as they should be.
“It’s insane,” she said.
Davis is currently running to fill the seat currently held by Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., the current Minority Leader readers said was both evil and mentally unstable. She also faces Rep. [score]Joe Heck[/score] and Sharron Angle, the one-time Tea Party candidate who lost to Reid in 2010.
Bernstein, who endorsed Davis for the position, characterized Heck as pro-amnesty, having voted for DACA. Angle, he added, is a patriot, but an “also-ran,” having lost to Reid.
As I reported for Examiner at the time, that race was marked with a great deal of hate from leftists, some of whom engaged in violence at one candidate forum. Joy Behar, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” assumed the role of the Almighty and said Angle is “going to hell.” She also came under heavy fire for discussing a “Second Amendment” solution, which was mischaracterized by the left. No doubt, all of this will be repeated in this year’s general election.
According to Bernstein, Davis’ campaign is a “David versus Goliath” effort, but, he added, is doable in the current climate.
Those interested in Davis’ campaign can check out her website here and her Facebook page can be viewed here. Bernstein tells me that a portion of all funds raised will go to help veterans in dire need. The primary election in Nevada is Flag Day, Tuesday, June 14.
