    NEVADA LAND GRAB, IS SEN. REID IN BED WITH THE CHINESE?

    I am calling my Senators on this.
    NEVADA LAND GRAB, IS SEN. REID IN BED WITH THE CHINESE?

    BY SFC DRAKE
    ON APR 11, 2014

    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.

    Deleted from BLM.gov 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 “

    Breaking: Sen. Harry Reid Behind BLM Land Grab of Bundy Ranch

    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.
    The first segment of the document pulled by the feds from BLM.gov.

    Deleted from BLM.gov 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.
    The second segment of the document pulled by the feds from BLM.gov.

    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.”
    In 2012, the New American reported that Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, was the chief representative for a Chinese energy firm planning 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 Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.”

    Update: The Drudge Report, the #1 news aggregate site in the world, has now picked up this story. Unfortunately for the BLM, the documents they wanted to delete are now exposed for the world to see.

    Militias head to Nevada rancher’s standoff with feds: We’re not ‘afraid to shoot’

    By Cheryl K. Chumley
    -
    The Washington Times
    Friday, April 11, 2014



    • Krissy Thornton, right, looks at blood from a taser wound on Ammon ... more >


    <font color="#000000"><span style="font-family: Helvetica">


    Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s decades-long battle against the federal government over grazing rights has heated to the point where militia groups have joined in and taken up spots against the feds who’ve circled his land — and talk is, they’re not afraid to open fire.


    A spokesman for the one of the militia groups said as much to local 8 News Now: I’m not “afraid to shoot,” he said.


    Margaret Houston, Mr. Bundy’s sister and a cancer survivor, said at a town hall gathering this week that the situation “was like a war zone” and that she felt “like I was not in the United States,” The Daily Mail reported.The Las Vegas Review-Journal described it this way: “Serious bloodshed was narrowly avoided,” in a story about how dogs were unleashed on a woman who was pregnant while the rancher’s son was hit with a taser.


    On Tuesday, armed Bureau of Land Management agents stormed Mr. Bundy’s property, escalating a court dispute that’s wound for two decades over the rancher’s refusal to pay for grazing fees.

    Mr. Bundy
    ’s view is that he owns his property — that it’s been in his family’s hands for centuries — and he doesn’t have to pay for his own 900-head of cattle to graze on the 600,000 acre Gold Butte property.The government, meanwhile, says the land belongs to it, and agents have swooped and circled, closing off roadway access to the property and flying helicopters overhead the family’s home.


    Following the agent occupation, one of Mr. Bundy’s sons, Ammon Bundy, was tasered by a federal official to the point that blood seeped through his shirt, video showed. Ms. Houston, meanwhile, said she was roughed up and manhandled by authorities, telling town hall attendees that she was “hit from the back; it was like a football tackle” and that “they just took me and threw me down to the ground,” The Daily Mail reported.


    BLM, for its part, says the situation only turned violent when protesters who rallied to the family’s defense kicked a K-9 unit officer.


    Now militia groups are on the scene, promising to help the Bundys keep up the fight.


    “This is what we do, we provide armed response,” Jim Lordy, with Operation Mutual Aid, told the local broadcast station. “They have guns. We need guns to protect ourselves from the tyrannical government.”


    Mr. Lordy also said “many more” militia groups are coming to the site to join in the Bundy family defense.


    “They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” another member told the Review-Journal.

    It looks like they roughed them up also. This is not what Governor Sandoval said should happen. Where is the Nevada Governor on this. He could stop it with a phone call.

    LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL


    Two brothers from St. George, Utah, were detained and cited by federal authorities Thursday afternoon as they crossed into an area closed for the ongoing roundup of “trespass cattle” on public land in northeastern Clark County.

    Tyler and Spencer Shillig said they were held for at least an hour after they intentionally crossed underneath a gate blocking the road to Overton Beach at the northern end of Lake Mead National Recreation Area northeast of Las Vegas.

    Tyler Shillig, 28, said they decided to join the protests against the federal roundup of rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle after they heard about the Bureau of Land Management trying to restrict protesters to a pair of First Amendment areas.

    “The federal government has way overstepped its bounds,” Tyler Shillig said. “For them to try to corral me in a 20-by-40 free-speech zone is inexcusable.”

    The Shilligs were not arrested, but each of them received a citation for interfering with an agency function. Spencer Shillig, 22, also was cited for disorderly contact and violent behavior before both men were released.

    The only arrest so far came Sunday, when Bundy’s son, Dave Bundy, was taken into custody by the BLM and released the next day after being cited for “refusing to disperse” and resisting arrest.

    There were indications Thursday that Dave Bundy’s brother, Ammon Bundy, also could face federal charges stemming from a clash between protesters and BLM rangers that resulted in him being shot with a stun gun.

    A criminal case against Ammon Bundy appeared on the electronic docket for the federal courts system and then disappeared after a reporter made an inquiry to the U.S. attorney’s office about it.

    No information about the charges against the 39-year-old was provided on the docket, but a case number for “USA v. Bundy” was listed and the case was assigned to U.S. Magistrate Judge George Foley Jr. Assistant U.S. Attorney Nadia Janjua Ahmed was listed as the prosecutor.

    When U.S. attorney’s office spokeswoman Natalie Collins was asked in an email why the case was no longer on the electronic docket, she replied, “We cannot comment on it.”

    The spot where the Shilligs were detained is on National Park Service land outside the almost 600,000-acre temporary closure area federal officials established for the roundup.

    On Wednesday, the Park Service announced an emergency closure of the roads to St. Thomas Point, Stewarts Point and Overton Beach so Bundy’s cattle could be rounded up there. A Park Service official said those areas are expected to reopen to the public Friday.

    The Shilligs knew they were crossing into an area that was closed, but Tyler said: “If you look at any successful movement, it’s because people have fought, people have been jailed.”

    VIDEO: Constitutional Sheriff Mack Speaks on Bundy Ranch Standoff as Oath Keepers Puts Out a Call for All Able Bodied Oath Keepers to Assist in Maintaining the Peace

    By: Jay Syrmopoulos Apr 10, 2014 93

    Clark County, Nev., April 10, 2014- On Tuesday, Nevada Governor Sandoval released a
    statement condemning some of the actions of the Bureau of Land Management in the Bundy Ranch standoff, but this is of little consolation to constitutional Sheriff Mack.



    Sheriff Mack says that actions speak louder than words and that Sandoval , while speaking about support, is doing virtually nothing within his power to assist the Bundy family. He goes on to admonish the local county Sheriff for not using his power to stand up to the feds in support of the Bundys. Sheriff Mack will be flying into Nevada to stand in solidarity with the Bundy family, as will Oath Keepers founder Steward Rhodes. Oath Keepers has also put out a call to all able-bodied members to come to the Bundy ranch in Clark County, Nevada to assist in supporting the family and keep the peace.

    Here is a statement released by Oath Keepers founder Steward Rhodes this morning:

    Oath Keepers,

    We need a presence there immediately to help prevent the feds sparking another Ruby Ridge or Waco incident in the Bundy stand-off.

    Nevada State Rep. Michele Fiore (a strong patriot who has attended many of our meetings) is on site right now at the protest site outside the Bundy ranch, and she is helping us assemble a coalition of Nevada state legislators. We are also working with WA State Rep Matt Shea to put together a delegation of other Western State Representatives to go there to support Rep. Fiore and her coalition, and we are working with Sheriff Mack to bring a delegation of current serving CSPOA Sheriffs to stand vigil there. We need Oath Keepers to also show up and stand vigil and support this family and the patriot legislators and sheriffs who are taking the lead in defending them. This is critical. The goal is to stand vigil to prevent another Waco or Ruby Ridge, and to put pressure on the Nevada Governor to honor the oath he took by standing up for this family and for the state of Nevada.

    I fly to Vegas tomorrow. Sheriff Mack is coming too, along with the current serving Sheriffs he is rallying to the cause.

    All who can make it, need to be there. We need numbers – boots on the ground. The more the better.

    For those who are coming, please rally at the public protest site near the ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada. To get there, take I-15 North, toward Mesquite, and get off at exit 112. Go right two miles (you can only go right). You will see tall flag poles and signs. Can’t miss it.

    Per Ammon Bundy, here are some rules:

    First, NO MILITARY CAMMO. This is a protest by rural Americans. Dress accordingly. (from me: Oath Keepers can wear Oath Keepers polos if you have them, or OK T shirts, but please no cammo. Let’s respect the Bundy family request).

    No open carry of rifles. Any rifles people may have with them need to stay in the vehicles.

    When you arrive at the protest rally point, ask for Ammon Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s son, to check in. If he is not there, he will have designated another family rep for you to check in with. DO NOT go past that first rally point/protest site with the flags that the family has set up on private land. Beyond that is the road to their ranch, and no one is to drive to the ranch without express permission and escort by Cliven Bundy or his sons. Please respect their need for security and privacy.

    No volunteer is to give any media interviews. Refer all media first and foremost to the Bundy family members present, in particular Cliven Bundy, Ammon, or one of the other sons. And/or refer them to one of the current serving Nevada State legislators who will be there, such as Michele Fiore (she is gathering a coalition of Nevada representatives), or one of the current serving Sheriff’s who will be coming. We are there to support them, and let them handle the media.

    If any media ask to interview Oath Keepers, please refer them to me, but I will likely just refer them to the family until we do a press conference once Sheriff Mack arrives – and even then, the focus will be on the coalition of current serving Western State Legislators and Sheriffs that we are helping to gather. They and the family will be the main effort, and we are there as support.

    BRING CAMERAS. Film everything. The more cameras, the better.

    Bring relevant signs about honoring the oath, respecting property rights and free speech rights. We are there to stand up for rural Americans who are under attack and to pressure the Governor and the Clark County Sheriff to do their duty.

    Ammon said volunteers can camp on private property that is on the side of the road at the main protest site the family has set up (the first gathering place you will come to with signs and flags once you get off I-15 at exit 112 and go about two miles). Again, please ask the family members present where to park and where to camp if you want to camp.

    Thank you,
    Stewart Rhodes

    The Bureau of Land Management [BLM] took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.

    Now, they want to use his case as precedent to seize land along a 116-mile stretch of the river. . .
