Nevada Rancher attacked by US for Chinese Solar Panels: Led by Harry Reid
What started as a fight between the US government and a Nevada rancher over a turtle has turned into a fight to drive this man off land he uses so the Chinese can build a solar plant and array on this property. Harry Reid, Senator from Nevada, is leading the charge and has orchestrated the entire event.
Using his son, Rory, to plan the Chinese deal and using his former aid and now BLM Director to forge the entire attack. Keep reading to see how this all comes together like a Tom Clancy novel.
Cliven Bundy and his family have been ranchers in Nevada, near Las Vegas, for 140 years (since 1870’s). The Desert Tortoise has been there longer. The US Government wants them both gone, out of the way.
Bundy has dug in. And brought in reinforcements. Armed reinforcements. The Federal government brought guns, snipers, and attack dogs. Bundy’s Bravado is better armed and out numbering the Feds. More armed militia are on their way to Nevada in defense of Bundy.
So, why is our US Federal government, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wanting him out of the way so bad. Because the Chinese do!
The BLM’s official reason for encircling the Bundy family with sniper teams and helicopters was to protect the endangered desert tortoise, (see: US Govt willing to kill Americans over a turtle) which the BLM agency has previously been killing in mass due to “budget constraints.”
But the real reason the Feds want him out of the way is for a $5 billion Chinese solar energy mega-array being built. The project has already started in neighboring areas near Bundy in and around the Las Vegas area.
Oh it gets better!
Senator Harry Reid’s son, Rory, a prominent attorney in Las Vegas, put the deal together with ENN Energy Group. Senator Reid has had extensive involvement in making this deal happen too. (See Reuters story: Reid and Son combine for Chinese solar plant)
Some how the Chinese bought 9,000 acres of our American soil for $4.5 million from our US Gov’t. It was easily worth $38.6 million. A 89 percent discount! Startling isn’t it.
ENN Energy Group describes itself as a “privately-owned clean energy distributor in China.” However, as the People’s Republic of China is a single-party state governed by the Communist Party, all large companies in China, one way or the other, are either controlled or are heavily influenced by the Chinese government.
Bundy would say that it was NOT the US governments land to sell. That the land belonged to Nevada but it was taken away by the Federal government, the BLM. The US government owns 84 percent of Nevada (Hitek Consulting).
If the US Government owns 84% of Nevada, why is Nevada even a state?
There were likely some laws violated in the sale of this land as any thing the US government sales is to be sold at Fair Market Value and has to go through a lengthy bidding process. Appears neither of this happened.
The Obama Administration is very “pro Green” which in theory is a great goal for producing future renewal energy sources. However, the methods to implementing this not only has cost the taxpayers billions of dollars (see: Solyndra Scandal), it has involved intrusive and invasive powers of the government.
The BLM says it is fighting Bundy because of the turtles. However, when it comes to the solar panel project, the BLM has shown on many instances they are not concerned about the turtles and have even been responsible for killing the turtles.
Harry Reid is using the BLM’s new director, Neil Kornze, to direct the siege on Bundy. Kornze was a former Reid aid and placed at the BLM by Reid. Reid is a powerful Senator from Nevada and Kornze was responsible for the solar power planning for ENN and the 285,000 acres dedicated to this project.
From the BLM’s website: “Before coming to the BLM, Kornze worked as a Senior Policy Advisor to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. In his work for Senator Reid, which spanned from early 2003 to early 2011, he worked on a variety of public lands issues, including renewable energy development.”
The Bunchy standoff is not about turtles: its about solar energy. Reid needs land to support the Chinese company ENN’s solar plans and the land the BLM allocated is where Bundy is cattle ranching. The US Government has partnered with the Chinese and is using its power and muscle to remove Bundy. They have already successfully removed 54 from this land. Bundy and his new Bravado of men and standing up to our Government…to fight!
