Restoration of Constitutional Principles
Impeach Reid Petition
LVTP is OFTEN asked to start a campaign to get rid of Harry Reid. Here are the facts:
The US Constitution states:
Article. I, Section 2,(5)
The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.
Article. I, Section. 3, (6) & (7)
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
The Nevada State Constitution states:
Article 2, Section 9
Sec. 9. Recall of public officers: Procedure and limitations. Every public officer in the State of Nevada is subject, as herein provided, to recall from office by the registered voters of the state, or of the county, district, or municipality which he represents.
The US Constitution does not necessarily invalidate nor negate the Nevada State Constitution. However there are many within the Republican Party whom have stated that Reid MUST be impeached by the House of Representatives.
The US Constitution also states:
U.S. Constitution - Amendment 10
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
April 30, 2014 UPDATE
LVTP has received NUMEROUS offers of support from all over the country in a bid to remove Harry Reid from office. We've also received informal legal counsel, and have come to the conclusion that the citizens of the State of Nevada DO have the power to remove Reid from office. It has been tried, but having failed once is never a reason to give up.
If you are willing to enter this fight to remove Reid from office, and have the stamina to stick a fight like this out to the end, please contact Karen at email@example.com or April at firstname.lastname@example.org with "REMOVE REID" in the subject line of an email, and we will organize a panel to start proceedings.
THERE IS NO TIME TO LOSE! ACT NOW! WE WILL REMOVE THAT DIRTY (bleep) FROM OFFICE!
I'm no lawyer, but in my mind, the Nevada citizens have the power to remove Reid.
There are several organizations whom have started on-line petitions to impeach Reid. The one included on this website is a simple petition to members of Congress to impeach Reid. It could be effective if enough people sign it. The other is by a group who claims that Reid is exempt from the necessity to be impeached because of some unnamed Senate bylaw, but that proof has never been provided, so it has been disregarded.
With so many people wanting us to have him removed, and of course, we also want him out of office, LVTP would start proceedings for a recall petition with the State of Nevada if enough interest was shown, or demand made. So, we will use the petition here as a barometer. If you want Reid gone, sign it. If we reach enough numbers, we'll start the petition.

LAS VEGAS TEA PARTY FULLY SUPPORTS
AND HIS FAMILYS FIGHT FOR JUSTICE! THE BUNDY FIGHT IS OUR FIGHT!!!
HELP US STAND FOR FREEDOM AND RESIST DIRTY HARRY REID'S UNDER-HANDED LAND GRAB!!!!
Bundy Support Demonstrations
Las Vegas Tea Party will be holding public demonstrations at key locations this week in support of Cliven Bundy and his fight against BLM.
Please join us this week in showing our support of our Constitutional rights, and the Bundy family's fight against tyrannical manipulation. We will take our fight to the doorsteps of our local representatives who should be standing up to the federal government on our behalf. They are failing us, so it is up to us to stand up for ourselves and demand justice.
The first demonstration:
April 17, 4:00 PM, Thursday
Lloyd D. George Federal Building
333 Las Vegas Boulevard, South
(Harry Reid's LV office)
The second demonstration:
April 18, 4:00 PM, Friday
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
400 S. Martin L. King Boulevard
(Sheriff Douglas Gillespie's office)
We will demonstrate to our elected representatives that we demand they protect our rights as Nevadan's and as American citizens. Our Sheriff has the highest ranking authority in our County, and our Federal representatives have a voice in our nations capitol.
We will continue to show them we will no longer tolerate injustices at their, or any other elected, representatives, hands or inactions.
Bring you signs reflecting your support for freedom, and demand for action. We are DONE tolerating their disregard for our laws and our freedoms.
TELL THEM TO DO THEIR JOBS!!!
April Minjares ReportsLVTP was represented at the Bundy protest on April 12, 2014, by our own April Minjares, who also organizes for Overpasses.org, which is dedicated to "Impeach Obama" rallies. Here is her report, in her own words.
We arrived at the Bundy Ranch at 8 AM. There was approximately 100-150 people gathered there in a main area off Highway 170 in Bunkerville, NV. People were immediately welcomed by anyone and everyone who was there and was made to feel like family. During the wait, people continued to arrive. As we people rallied with our fellow patriots for about an ...hour we learned that the Bundys were going to speak as well as Sheriff Doug Gillespie, who was supposed to arrive at nine.
While rallying, a fellow patriot told us that her husband, who was also on his way from Las Vegas, saw a SWAT vehicle in en route. We observed two LVMPD vehicles drive by us as well as NHP. Their presence was non-threatening.
Ammon Bundy, one of Cliven’s sons, spoke first. Then Uncle Steve Bundy spoke. Finally Cliven Bundy spoke. All described their experiences with the BLM’s aggression and assaults and the resulting loss in their God given rights. It ended with inspiration of us as Americans uniting our strengths of morals, values, freedoms, and our Creator.
When Cliven Bundy spoke, he told us that Gillespie called and asked to speak with him privately. Cliven told Gillespie that if he wanted to speak to him, he can speak to him in front of the people.
When Gillespie arrived and spoke, he indicated that he believed a press release had been issued stating that the BLM was going to cease operations and remove their assets. Of course we were elated. He also stated that the Gold Butte allotment was to be reopened to the public. Nevertheless, we questioned the authenticity of that report as we asked about the release of the cattle as well as the reopening of the air space. No response was given.
Cliven reciprocated by stating that We the People also had demands. These included telling Gillespie to use his authority to disarm the park service and the BLM and to bring the firearms to the rallying site within one hour. Cliven also instructed the media to do their job and report Gillespie’s progress.
An hour came and went. There were no firearms and there were no reports from the media. The decision was made to no longer negotiate with our Constitutional rights and to take back stolen property.
Everyone then drove or rode horses to the I-15 at the overpass where the BLM was holding the cattle. We walked down into the wash where we were met with the BLM hiding behind their vehicle doors with their rifles pointed at us. We were repeatedly ordered over loud speaker to vacate and that we were in violation of a court order or face possible gun fire and or arrest.
As we peacefully inched our way towards the gate, media was able to approach the BLM at the gate and BLM sent someone to negotiate with the Bundys privately. The Bundys stated that any negotiations would happen in front of the people.
After we stood our ground and waited, we were told that the BLM was packing up and leaving. It took an extraordinary amount of time as they insisted that LVMPD provide armed escort for fear of being fired upon. After the BLM’s final departure, LVMPD helped facilitate the release of the cattle.
Like a scene from a Fred Gipson novel, we watched in delight as the cattle were horse-driven back to their familiar home of the Virgin Valley.

Effectiveness of the Tea Party
The people who hold political offices quickly get accustomed to the power that office brings them, and will play whatever political game they need to, in order to hold on to that glory. The worst part of our political system is that freedom applies to the good, and the bad. We can weed out the bad, but the good need to be vigilant.
All my life, I have heard people say "there's nothing I can do", "I won't make a difference", "I voted, that's all I can do", "I'm too busy". There might have been a time when that was true, but a miracle has happened within the United States of America since 2009..."We The People" have begun to stand up, speak out, unite, and fight for the freedoms and rights that were given to us by God, then documented and guaranteed by our Founding Fathers in our Declaration of Independence, and our United States Constitution.
If you still think there is nothing you can do, or think you don't count, check out these facts that the media will never tell you about:
•During the 2010 Election cycle, Republicans added more than 720 legislative seats to their column.
•20 State legislatures were outright turned over from Democrat majority to Republican majority
•Oregon State legislature was tied.
•A Louisiana House Democrat turned Republican, making the majority Republican.
•After the 2010 election cycle, there were more Republican state legislators (3,941) than at any point since they held 4,001 seats after the 1928 election.
•Republicans almost completely reversed their standing in 98 partisan State legislative chambers. Prior to the election, Democrats dominated, 60-36, with Alaska Senate and Montana House tied. By January 2010, Republicans control 57 chambers, Democrats 39.
•After the elections, Republicans took control of the entire legislature in 25 States. Democrats control both houses of 16 legislatures, with eight states facing division. The last time Republicans controlled this many legislatures was after the 1952 election, when they had 26.
•There were 108 new members of Congress. 35 of them had never held an elected office before. They were commonly thought to be supported by the "Tea Party". The "debt limit" bill that was passed was not the success many media outlets will tell you it was. But the miracle that did happen you are not hearing about, is the new "Tea Party" members of Congress stood their ground against the crushing pressure of veteran politicians, and fended off crippling tax hikes that were being demanded by the Democratic leadership. 32 "Tea Party" freshman Congressman refused to buckle, and stood up for YOUR rights. They understood what it meant to represent “We The People”, and were committed to doing that. Regrettably, the debt limit was raised, and not enough cuts were made, but destructive taxes were held at bay. The most important thing that happened, is "We The People" became an official force to be reckoned with, and elected officials finally started to listen to us.
What is important here is NOT that party control switched from Democrat to Republican. What IS important, is that people got involved, and MADE A CHANGE. Yes, YOU DO make a difference!! Yes, WHAT YOU SAY AND DO MATTERS!!!!
In less than 400 years, The United States of America arose from absolute non-existence, to the most economically, militarily, educationally, and technologically advanced nation on the face of the earth to EVER exist. Even the most poor in America enjoy a better life-style than some average third world country citizens. The system under which this took place was, among other things, republican capitalism.
