BUSTED: Bundy Ranch Siege REALLY About Harry Reid Backed Solar Power Stations : Appalachian Area News
U.S. Senator Reid, son combine for China firm's desert plant | Reuters
Revelations have emerged that documents have been purged from the Bureau of Land Management’s web site,, stating that the agency wants besieged Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off land his family has worked on over 140 years to make way for solar panel power stations.

A 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” 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.”

These discoveries come only weeks after The Bureau of Land Management cashed in with $1.27 million in oil and gas leases in Nevada reported by

U.S. Bureau of Land Management geologist Lorenzo Trimble tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal the Elko County oil and gas leases sold Tuesday for $1.27 million to six different companies. The auction took place in Reno. The leases are near where Houston-based Noble Energy Inc. wants to drill for oil and natural gas on 40,000 acres of public and private land near the town of Wells. The Review-Journal reports the project would be the first in Nevada to use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to extract oil and gas from shale deposits.

In the wake of the Bundy Ranch controversy former senior adviser of Harry Reid Neil Kornze was just named Deputy Chief Director of the BLM Wednesday. Awkward time for the placement right?

Well, not if you are Harry Reid. It is convenient for Reid that his senior adviser be named BLM director during the Budy Ranch showdown. Especially considering it appears that it was under Kornze’s authority that the aforementioned documents where scrubbed from the BLM website. Luckily the documents were reposted for posterity by the Free Republic keeping them from escaping down the memory hole.
So what does Harry Reid have to do with all this?

Back 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.

Journalist Marcus Stern with Reuters also reported that Sen. Reid was heavily involved in the deal.

“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.”

Ah, so all the pieces fall together.

We can assume that Reid cares little about the Desert Tortoise the government itself is killing hundreds of right? Reid is simply using the BLM to change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate his Chinese partnered solar development scheme.

When reached for comment on Wednesday before this bombshell information dropped, Harry Reid spokeswoman Kristen Orthman said: “Senator Reid hopes the trespassing cattle are rounded up safely so the issue can be resolved.” Yes, I bet he does indeed.
Meanwhile at the Bundy Ranch

Between Saturday and Wednesday, government contracted wranglers have impounded a total of 352 cattle, federal officials said. Bundy says he owns 500 of the more than 900 cattle that federal officials are planning to confiscate for “illegal grazing.” Bundy told the newspaper that each head of his livestock is worth about $1,000.

Since the roundups began, protesters have been confined to two areas to publicly declare their grievances, but the peaceful protests in recent days “have crossed into illegal activity, including blocking vehicles associated with the (roundup), impeding cattle movement, and making direct and overt threats to government employees,” the two federal agencies said in a statement.

In the scuffle with protesters, a police dog was kicked, and officers protecting the civilian driver were threatened and assaulted, the two agencies’ statement said. “After multiple requests and ample verbal warnings, law enforcement officers deployed Tasers on a protestor,” the statement said.

Even though federal authorities have decried the protestors actions as violent and inappropriate, the video evidence tells another story:

he's also destroying the habitat for the Desert Tortoise

The senators dealings and turtle stories are just a cover.
Looks like the Bundy's have won this battle so far... had it continued, I would bet patriot vets would be shooting it out with veteran mercenaries, in and out of the area.

Too much B.S. in this thread.

According to CNN the rancher has been grazing on federal (government owned)land. The land hosts a are turtle that is being endangered by the cattle grazing.
