CORRUPT HARRY REID IS INVOLVED IN THE BUNDY RANCH STAND-OFF!
By Max Emfinger
The “Bundy Ranch Stand-Off” is one of the most intriguing stories of the Year or maybe even the Decade. All of a sudden, we hear this story about a Nevada Rancher named Cliven Bundy (In Photo)and he has got himself and his Cowboy Neighbors into a “Waco” or “Ruby-Ridge” Type of situation and the ultimate outcome could become a Full-Blown Massacre of Bundy, a Nevada Rancher and his Family, his Cows, and his Neighbor-Cowboys.
So, by now, most everyone has hear some version of what they think is going on. Basically, The Bureau of Land Management or BLM and 200 or 300 Armed Federal Agents were in a Critical Stand-Off with Bundy and his Neighbor-Cowboys.
Although the Bundy Family had been using this Grazing-Land since the 1870’s, the BLM had reduced and modified the Grazing-Land amount that the Bundy Family could use for their Cows to graze. Bundy had ignored the ruling of the BLM and continued to let his Cows to graze as they had for many years in the past, but the BLM have reported that Bundy owed them for the past two decades in Grazing Fees.
So what has brought all of this to a head? If you know and understand the Corruption in Washington; then it does not take too long for you to realize that something Corrupt is going on here. So what is it? So lets Follow The Money!
“In 2012, the BLM and the U.S. Department of Energy published a Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement or PEIS for Solar Energy Development in Six Southwest States. The Final Report read: “The Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement or PEIS assessed the impact of Solar Energy Development of Utility Type Scale on United States Public Lands in Six Southwest States, including of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.”
The official reason for the Government interest in this Grazing Land was a “Trumped-Up” reason to protect the Desert Tortoise, which is already protected under the Endangered Species Act. The Nevada State Senator, Peter Goicoechea, recently made a statement that the State of Nevada had imposed a regulation of one Desert Tortoise limit per person to reduce the over-breeding and proliferation of unwanted Desert Tortoises.
A Desert Tortoise Regulation is definitely not the reason why the Feds were harassing the 67-Year Old Bundy and his Neighbor Rancher Friends. The Feds simply want their Grazing Land. The Desert Tortoise was also not the concern of Nevada Senator Harry Reid when he wanted the BLM to literally change the Boundaries of the Desert Tortoise and their habitat so that they would not be there to accommodate the development of one of of his biggest political donors, Harvey Whittmore.
Whittmore gave Illegal Political Campaign Contributions to Harry Reid and he is now the Head of the BLM. Many people believe that Whittmore is the new BLM Puppet for Reid to control the Grazing Land of Nevada.
The BLM also has tried to argue that the Grazing Land Rules has been changed since Bundy secured his rights and paid his Grazing Land dues to Clark County, Nevada. The BLM also say that the new Grazing Land Rules supersede the agreement that Bundy originally had signed and so the BLM have demanded to reduce his Cattle from his over 1,000 Herd of Cattle to a tiny 150 Herd of Cattle. This small Cattle Herd would not be able to sustain keeping his Cattle or his Ranch.
Bundy built fences, constructed roads, and established water rights with his own money to sustain his Cattle and Ranch. Then when the BLM started using his Grazing Fees to harass him and to try to run him off of his land, he stopped paying them.
The BLM asserts their power through the expressed desire to protect the endangered desert tortoise, a tortoise so “endangered” that their population can no longer be contained by the refuge constructed for them so the government is closing it and euthanizing over a thousand tortoises. The tortoises, the excuse that BLM has given for violating claims to easements and running all but one lone rancher out of southern Nevada, is doing fine. In fact, the tortoise has lived in harmony with cattle in the Gold Butte, Clark County Nevada for over a hundred years, or as long as Cliven Bundy’s family has lived on the land as ranchers. In fact, the real threat to it is urbanization, not cattle.
A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. 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. 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 Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.
So if the Desert Tortoise is not the reason, then who and what are the reasons for this attempted Government Land Grab. If you Follow the Money and the Corrupt Politics, you will find that Nevada State Senator and Corrupt Senate Majority Leader Harry “The Snake” Reid is right in the middle of the Grazing Land Rules Change and also in the middle of the Chinese Solor Energy Company.
Back in September 2012, Rory Reid, Son of the Snake, was the Sales Representative for a Chinese Solar Energy Company that had huge plans to build a $5 billion Solar Energy Farm on Public Land in Laughlin, Nevada. Senator Reid was also in on on the deal.
Surprise! Surprise! This so-called Public Land is the same Public Land that the Bundy Cows have been Grazing-On and also is exactly the same Public Land where the Chinese Solar Energy Company wanted to put their new Solar Energy Panels. In he Photo, Harry Reid on the Right, is helping to Break-Ground on the Chinese Solar Energy Company.
Upon orders from Senator Harry Reid, this Heavy-Handed Tyranny Tactic has run many of the Bundy Neighbor-Ranchers from their land, leaving only Bundy as one of the Last Nevada Cowboys to Stand-Up against the Federal Government.
The real reason that the Feds Harassed Bundy and tried to run him off of his land was not because he did not pay his Grazing Fees and it was not because of the Desert Tortoise; but it was because Bundy was not a Dirty Harry Reid Donor.
This Crisis is Definitely not over, but the Feds and White House, with their full-blown BLM Army with Sniper Rifles decided to initially Stand-Down, this time, because the 2014 Mid-Term Elections are coming-up and the Liberal Democrats did not want the Bad Public Relations that would come from a violent confrontation, similar to the Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Branch Davidian incidents that left Innocent People Dead.
It’s really sad that we did not deploy this BLM Type Army to defend those that were lost at Benghazi, but instead our Federal Government sent this Military Army with numerous Snipers, to try to run this one Nevada Rancher off of his land. Does everyone realize that our Federal Government probably spent $4M to try to get Bundy to pay $1M in Grazing Fees.
