20200913: MAGA Rally, Vegas, Baby, Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada

Believe it or not, there’s another face in Las Vegas who really did put his stamp on the place.

Thought I was going to feature the Rat Pack? Nah.

Okay, history of Las Vegas:

Las Vegas (Spanish for “The Meadows”), officially the City of Las Vegas and often known simply as Vegas, is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County

Nomadic Paleo-Indians traveled to Las Vegas 10,000 years ago, leaving behind petroglyphs. Anasazi and Paiute tribes followed at least 2,000 years ago.

A young Mexican scout named Rafael Rivera is credited as the first non-Native American to encounter the valley, in 1829.[17][18][19][20] Trader Antonio Armijo led a 60-man party along the Spanish Trail to Los Angeles, California in 1829.[21][22] The area was named Las Vegas, which is Spanish for “the meadows,” as it featured abundant wild grasses, as well as the desert spring waters needed by westward travelers.[23] The year 1844 marked the arrival of John C. Frémont, whose writings helped lure pioneers to the area. Downtown Las Vegas’s Fremont Street is named after him.

Eleven years later, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chose Las Vegas as the site to build a fort halfway between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles, where they would travel to gather supplies. The fort was abandoned several years afterward. The remainder of this Old Mormon Fort can still be seen at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Washington Avenue.

Las Vegas was founded as a city in 1905, when 110 acres (45 ha) of land adjacent to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks were auctioned in what would become the downtown area. In 1911, Las Vegas was incorporated as a city.[24]Golden Nugget and Pioneer Club along Fremont Street in 1952

1931 was a pivotal year for Las Vegas. At that time, Nevada legalized casino gambling and reduced residency requirements for divorce to six weeks. This year also witnessed the beginning of construction on nearby Hoover Dam. The influx of construction workers and their families helped Las Vegas avoid economic calamity during the Great Depression. The construction work was completed in 1935.

In late 1941, Las Vegas Army Airfield was established. Renamed Nellis Air Force Base in 1950, it is now home to the United States Air Force Thunderbirds aerobatic team.[25]

Following World War II, lavishly decorated hotels, gambling casinos, and big-name entertainment became synonymous with Las Vegas.This view of downtown Las Vegas shows a mushroom cloud in the background. Scenes such as this were typical during the 1950s. From 1951 to 1962, the government conducted 100 atmospheric tests at the nearby Nevada Test Site.[26]

In 1951, nuclear weapons testing began at the Nevada Test Site, 65 miles (105 km) northwest of Las Vegas. During this time, the city was nicknamed the “Atomic City”. Residents and visitors were able to witness the mushroom clouds (and were exposed to the fallout) until 1963, when the Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty required that nuclear tests be moved underground.[27][28]

In 1955, the Moulin Rouge Hotel opened and became the first racially integrated casino-hotel in Las Vegas.

The iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, which has never been located within municipal limits, was created in 1959 by Betty Willis.[29]

And from my favorite Vegas movie:

All that kitch.

I’ll add live links to this post during the late afternoon as they become available.


In the meantime, please post tweets and videos below of what’s going on in Nevada, and any travel stories you may have of the place.

President Trump was quick tonight – wondered when he took a breath – hard to keep up with him.
Thanks, Butterfly – sorry I was not much help – beat – 2 hours past my bedtime – it is.


We’re BACK IN THE RALLIES. Very smart.

Yep, back to life, back to reality, back to the here and now.
Did you see this?? Those ASSHOE Zombie movies were fake!! DAMMIT!!


Yes – I went and re-posted about this myself after I saw this comment – GREAT citation there – I think he’s right!!!

They only let out what they want the world to see – lies. They scammed us with the zombies AND the lockdowns. Did you see TGP article about lockdowns? They had almost 200K Wumaos going against different Governments to manipulate them into lockdowns. And it worked! Pizzed me off to no end. We can’t believe a thing we see from them! NEVER AGAIN!! Seen anything on the dam lately?? That’s ASSHOE too.


No, I did not see that, but if it’s true, then I think we need to cut off trade relations with China until the CCP is ousted.


OMG – those BASTARDS!!!

ALL THEIR VIDEOS WERE PROPAGNDA!!! They were back at work in April, all the while manipulating the WORLD into lockdowns, giving them the chance to catch up and excel economically over all countries. DIABOLICAL ASSHOES!!!!! 🤬🤬🤬


He gets charged by the crowd – a bit angry about the governors and their petty rules!

YW, it’s all GOOD! 🤗🤗🤗
I think everyone’s tired.


So many things happening at once, too – Q posted – AG Barr and Durham – now there is something about 13 days? the ‘seize’ on the 17th – the peace plan – meeting on Tuesday – Gee – who can keep up with him?



What’s habbening tomorrow?

Q said 14-18 and 21-25. Hopefully Durham. 🤞🤞


Yes – that bell went off as soon as you said it!


Any opinions here on this new rally momentum?
I’m thinking it might be the result of putting Parscale 100% back on digital and getting somebody else in at the top of the campaign strategy.

Bill Stepien’s in charge of campaign now…Real sharp guy.
POTUS is the ultimate BOSS!😉


All I know is that they wanted to kill the rallies with WuFlu, but they couldn’t hold Pres. Trump down. He seems all in, 💯percent — not as if someone told him he has to be doing this. I’m sure the Dems are fuming.


I think Parscale was overloaded – PT broke him off – and put him where he can be most effective.
PT may also have changed the campaign crew – and redistributed the duties – after all – this is a massive undertaking – need more hands in the pie production – and feet on the ground.
PT is also a manager who knows the strengths and weaknesses of his staff – he brings out the best in people – and puts the best people in pivotal positions – they learned a lot after the first run.
Seems to me – whatever changes PT made in personnel and positions are paying off – much smoother operation this time around – don’t you think?


They got the rallies back – that was ESSENTIAL. However that happened, it was the right move!!!
The rally in Tulsa got SNAKED. However that happened, it had to be fixed.


Absotutalutely, Wolf – Essential – Yes!
And – the response was impressive – it is also breaking the covid crux – they do not want us coming together – uniting behind PT – they also do not want us to know their agenda – with each rally – the contrast becomes clearer – and we are silent no more. It is obvious from Michigan and Nevada – their governors are not popular.
People are fighting back – they are fed up – and they are not going to take it anymore.
Interesting how people are forming their own rallies, too – boat parades – car parades – tractor parades. Amazing!!!


Yes – the spontaneous rallies are COOL – and HUGE.




Heartbreaking for sheriff deputies. A guy and a gal. The gal, just off maternity leave. A newborn at home! Simply so terrible to be happening. When they catch the bastard, I hope a hate crime fits the asshoe criminal when prosecuted.



Good by me. Feds demand expedited trial.


Thanks for another great Rally Thread, DePat!
I really appreciate all the work you’re doing for us on all these threads.


Thank you, DP, for the thread. Rally + Vegas = Lots and lots of fun!


love the Vegas thread DePat…Viva Las Vegas one of favorite Elvis movies!
