  • Why Harry Reid, lawless traitor, is sputtering over Cliven Bundy, good citizen.

    It's definitely not about the rule of law:

    Regarding grazing, the BLM says Bundy's cattle are illegally grazing on Gold Butte. If that's the case, then he's trespassing. And if that's the case, he shouldn't owe any grazing fees. If he owes grazing fees, then that implies he has some legal right to use the land, albeit he is expected to pay a tax for it. If that's the case, then he's not trespassing and his cattle aren't there illegally, he is just in arrears. I'm sure this all makes sense to government lawyers and judges who can pull treaties and agreements out of their derrieres to prove their case, but to ordinary folk, this seems like a little bit of circular logic.

    But back to Harry Reid.

    Obviously, the whole tortoise-grazing fee thing didn't wash in light of the BLM bringing in an armed 200-man army plus out-of-state backup to round up some cows, which witnesses say were chased to ground in helicopters in some cases. Then some documents on the BLM's own website came to light.

    At first blush, the story that emerged from those documents involved plans by a Chinese energy firm, ENN, represented by Rory Reid, to build a $5 billion project in Laughlin, clear at the south end of the state, and to buy a plot of land in Clark County, where the County Commission, formerly chaired by Rory Reid, voted to sell the land for pennies on the dollar.

    As part of what the BLM has termed the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone, alternative energy projects in Clark County would pay into a fund to "mitigate" the Gold Butte and surrounding areas. The Las Vegas Sun (I'm just going to keep picking on you guys) said that the Dry Lake solar zone doesn't match up with the Gold Butte area, but according to the BLM, its plans "consist of restoration and preservation measures prescribed for the Gold Butte Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), but for which sufficient resources have been unavailable. The Gold Butte ACEC is in the same ecological zone (ecoregion) and subzone as the Dry Lake SEZ and is of the same vegetation community. The Gold Butte ACEC provides habitat for all of the wildlife, including the special status species, found in the Dry Lake SEZ."

    Translation: The BLM expects a bunch of alternative-energy businesses to move into the Dry Lake SEZ and tear up tortoise habitat, but that's OK, because those companies will pay to beef up the tortoise country club planned at Gold Butte, if only that Bundy character would get out of the way. And, oh yeah, there's a lot of money the BLM plans to soak from the businesses it's going to let chew up "public" lands.

    A BLM map of planned renewable energy projects also shows a company called First Solar among 11 projects sited in Clark County. The list of investors for First Solar includes Goldman Sachs, Ted Turner, Paul Tudor Jones and Al Gore. Here's my personal favorite part, though: First Solarís CEO is Michael Ahearn. Ahearn is a fundraiser for President Obama and ... ta da! ... Harry Reid.

    Small world, ain't it?

    These projects are all part of a much larger plan by the Democratic Party to turn the West into essentially a giant battery. The President's New Energy for America Plan calls for 10 percent of U.S. electricity to be generated by renewable sources by two years ago, a goal that has been slightly surpassed at this point. However, it also calls for a whopping 25 percent by 2025.

    My guess is they're running a little behind schedule.

    According to the BLM, a 2009 memo from the secretary of the interior demanded that the Department of the Interior make renewable energy development a top priority. The Moapa solar project is on the fast-track list, according to a BLM report.

    So the reason why Cliven Bundy's cattle were the target of an armed invasion really had only peripherally to do with grazing fees and even less to do with a tortoise. The truth at this point seems to be that he stands in the way of a massive plot -- dare we say conspiracy? -- to make a whole lot of business and political figures on the Left a whole lot richer.
    To recap, Senator Harry Reid sees that the President has called for a monumentally stupid, damaging, and unworkable 'environmentalist' plan, cynically offers to implement that plan instead of calling attention to its stupidity, and starts railroading anybody who gets in his way with no regard for either the law or environmental niceties, but plenty for nepotistic family connections and political patronage.

    Harry Reid, in short, is a Traitor to His State and his Country, in the same way that Edward Snowden is not. And neither I, nor anyone else, will listen to careless talk about killing one without talk just as serious about killing the other. Otherwise you're simply unserious blowhards who will never, ever, influence politics in anything resembling the right direction.

    Well, I must agree that Reid and most of the administration are traitors to the United States of America.
