Is Democratic Senator Harry Reid of Nevada behind BLM Land Grab of Bundy Ranch?

23 11378

Whether Senator Harry Reid initiated the BLM seizure of Cliven Bundy’s ranch or not, can be up for debate. But since the head of the Bureau of Land Management is Reid’s former senior adviser, there is no doubt that Harry Reid could pick up a phone and put an end to this whole standoff. So much for Harry Reid stepping up to help Nevadans.

Now there is a theory being bandied about that Senator Reid is actually instigating the expulsion of Mr. Bundy and his cattle because Chinese interests want to build a giant solar power facility on the land where Bundy’s cattle now graze. These Chinese interests are also suspected of funneling campaign contributions illegally to Harry Reid’s election campaigns. This wouldn’t be the first time Senator Reid has been associated with illegal campaign contributions. See examples: Jack Abramoff, Harvey Whittemore, and  illegally giving campaign money to his granddaughter. Recently an FBI investigation into Senator Reid was suddenly called off by Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department.

The FBI must have started to find some truly damning evidence huh?


BLM attempted cover-up of Sen. Reid/Chinese gov’t takeover of ranch for solar farm

The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.

Corrupt Democratic Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) working with the Chinese gov't to take land from hard-working Americans.

Deleted from but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle Trespass Impacts” directly states that Bundy’s cattle “impacts” solar development, more specifically the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”

“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the document states.

Another BLM report entitled Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone (BLM Technical Note 444) reveals that Bundy’s land in question is within the “Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone and surrounding area” which is part of a broad U.S. Department of Energy program for “Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States” on land “managed” by BLM.

“In 2012, the BLM and the U.S. Department of Energy published the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States,” the report reads. “The Final Solar Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement assessed the impact of utility-scale solar energy development on public lands in the six southwestern states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.”

“The Approved Resource Management Plan Amendments/Record of Decision (ROD) for Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States implemented a comprehensive solar energy program for public lands in those states and incorporated land use allocations and programmatic and SEZ-specific design features into land use plans in the six-state study area.”

Back in 2012, the New American reported that Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, was the chief representative for a Chinese energy firmplanning to build a $5-billion solar plant on public land in Laughlin, Nevada.

And journalist Marcus Stern with Reuters also reported that Sen. Reid was heavily involved in the deal as well.

“[Reid] and his oldest son, Rory, are both involved in an effort by a Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group, to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert,” he wrote. “Reid has been one of the project’s most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on behalf of the project in Nevada.”

“His son, a lawyer with a prominent Las Vegas firm that is representing ENN, helped it locate a 9,000-acre (3,600-hectare) desert site that it is buying well below appraised value from Clark County, where Rory Reid formerly chaired the county commission.”

Although these reports are in plain view, the mainstream media has so far ignored this link.

The BLM’s official reason for encircling the Bundy family with sniper teams and helicopters was to protect the endangered desert tortoise, which the agency has previously been killing in mass due to “budget constraints.”

“A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher; they want his land,” journalist Dana Loesch wrote. “The tortoise wasn’t of concern when [U.S. Senator] Harry Reid worked with BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore.”

“Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests,” she added. “BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area.”

“If only Cliven Bundy were a big Reid donor.”

  1. Senator Scary Greed has been doing this in Nevada for years. Usually the land eventually ends up in the hands of his friends over at Del Webb.

    • There’s a lot of “should” that he should be… he should be honest, honorable, patriotic, supportive of the American people and the Constitution…. he’s none of those things.

    • He should but he’s not going to because he is the initiator of it all. Nevadans need to get that SOB out of office and prosecute him for his unlawful acts.

  2. If it is true about Harry Reids son working for a Chinese companys who is going to install solar panel farms in three states including the one where this rancher is being pushed off the land, Harry Reid needs to be recalled and hung in the town square in Carson City the Nev. capitol. Do it now Nevada people, do it now.

    • When Reid was reelected, I was dumbfounded. A friend of mine who lives there, said it was because his son owns the voting machines. She’s been trying, for years, to get someone in the media to take notice & do a report on such, to no avail.


    • I, Christopher Cullen Cosby, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God. I remember taking this oath 13 years ago. I remembered that my first sworn duty as a soldier was to support and defend this nation and it’s people. I lived that oath for 10 years of my life. I’m glad to know soldiers like you still exist in the military. Thank you for service and for upholding your oath. Welcome to the brotherhood of the Oath Keepers!

      • Christopher, Let me clarify…I am not nor have I ever served our great country. My profile picture is what I assume made you think I was a male and I had served. That’s not the case. My profile picture is that of our only POW from the Afghanistan War that’s been held since 6/30/09. He is Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl of the US Army. He just celebrated his 28th birthday over there in the hands of our enemies. I’m an advocate as well as my family to bring this young man home to the country that has seemed to of forgotten about him. What ever happened to Leave No Man Behind? Now… I do want to thank you for your service and sacrifices to our country. My family and I appreciate it. I am the wife to a Persian Gulf Vet and a Mother to a Operation Enduring Freedom Vet. And am a staunch Military Supporter, not to mention a Proud American! I am also a supporter of Cliven Bundy… our government has beyond over stepped their boundaries! Thank you Sir for your service as well as to all those that have served and sacrificed…. especially our Fallen Heroes!. God Bless!

  4. We need to stop these greedy assholes like Harry Reid and Rory Reid from selling our nations land, especially to foreign Governments and companies. I am sure we can get an American company to build solar farms and do it on land that isn’t being used by our nations ranchers. The Chinese have become the largest land owners in our country over the past decade and this is do to greedy politicians that have no right to sell this land. These people have forgotten that they work for us and can be put out to pasture at anytime…….

  5. If I were Harry Reid being the age that he is, I would start worrying about what awaits me when I leave this world. What goes around, comes around.

  6. The Legend of Chinese Harry-by Carson W Randolph
    Chinese Harry and his boy Rory
    Came up with a plan, to steal some land
    So they hired some thugs to work out the bugs
    And kill some Americans too.
    They’ve lined up some snipers to wipe out the gripers
    Who cares if they kill a few hundred at will,
    Steal the property of the few, cause that’s what they do
    And the Chinese will pay all the bills.
    Old harry and his ancestors have always been crooks
    Some of them were left hangin, after cooking the books ,
    So he carries on the family traditions, in spite of all suspicions
    So he and his son, over the death ofAmerican sons,
    can rise up the chain of people who complain
    when he steals their land and laughs at the pain,
    he never feels, as he completes his crooked deals.
    The money must be good I guess that’s understood,
    He’s paid off the news, to agree with his views
    He’s paid off the local enforcers of the banks
    To roll in the military and the tanks, as
    They write the laws to go with their cause
    And lie like snakes without a pause,
    calling patriots criminals, their voices kept minimal,
    as they prepare their weapons to shoot them to dust
    without a thought, because of their lust
    for money and power, why… it’s old Chinese Harry’s finest hour.
    As for me, I hope they, chokes on the cash

  7. The media is not us any of this, not even Fox News. But can you imagine the outrage if this happened under Bush or Reagan or any other Republican? I have been saying for decades, if you want to keep government honest vote for Republicans because the media lets the Democrats get away with murder! Remember Chappaquidik!

  8. So let me get this right… if black folks on welfare are freeloaders for getting something for nothing from the government, then why isn’t Clive? Failing to pay the feds grazing fees for using taxpayer land is no different that black momma welfare queens sitting on their arse’s and getting Obama bucks. Freeloading is freeloading, regardless of your race.

    Or is it only cool if white folks cheat the government?

    • he paid the fees when it was state land ,, but the feds stepped in a took it from the state back in 1993 I believe was the year,, and that is getting out of hand as there are many states that 70% or 50% or 80% in some states like Nevada are land owned by the feds , and thats when he quit paying,, He would keep paying the state if it was still under there control,,his stance is the government over reach and we better all stand up , and you have it backwards as its the government cheating all human beings whites and blacks and any race since you like to distinguish human beings because I don’t like racism , from blacks or whites and your post is full of racism

  9. The solar deal they keep talking about is about 3 miles from us and we are about 180 MILES FROM BUNDY. Also, in June of 2013 that deal fell through when ENN couldn’t sell power-purchase agreements.

    Still, Reid (to me) is a greedy and manipulative politician and at the same time the BLM should have handled this better I think.

    If Bundy would get a Constitutional Lawyer to check out the right of easement, he just might have a case here, but violence isn’t the way to go on this one (as I see it).

  10. i want to know where peta is? I guess these animals are republican so it is ok for them to be injured or killed….as a vegas resident reid is as corrupt as they come…..
