Why is US Senator Harry
Reid so concerned with
a local Nevada rancher?

Fox News, by Wayne Allyn Root

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/16/2014 9:37:12 PM

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

He raises some very good questions about why Dingy Harry is so concerned about this. Root says: something smells very rotten in Nevada. Yes, it sure does.

Hmm, why on earth would a Nevada Senator be upset with a local Nevada rancher? Anyone see the Godfather movies???
Harry Reid went to Washington with a net worth of under $100,000 and now is a multi-millionaire! How does that happen on a Senator´s salary?
So to ask again, why is US Senator Harry Reid so concerned with a local Nevada rancher?...Answer, follow the money

WHY isn´t anyone reporting on the rare earth minerals mines that are close to the Bundy´s ranch??? Apparently Dirtbag Reid and his son are much more upset about THAT coming out, as they have a deal with China to sell all the minerals from those mines!! Those are AMERICAN´S resouces!!

China has been trying to corner the market on rare earth minerals for years now. Harry and Junior are just going to sell them without any congressional approval for their own profet?

WHICH BTW could explain all the land grabs by the government in the west and southwest by the Clinton and Obama administrations. The government JUST claimed how many millions of aces?

Again, why is this not being reported? It´s on the website of an independent agency that is trying to sound the alarm. I have to go back and get the acronym.

Yes, probably. Otherwise, no other explanation why Reidie would draw attention to himself his way unless the distraction was created to pull something in D.C. I would think that his fellow Mormons would agree.

Both Bundy and Reid are Mormons. As a Mormon myself my heart aches that Reid treats his fellow man in such a way. Mrs. Bundy and their children seem to have character. Rory Reid asked a good question about Bundy not following the laws of the land, but where does Rory Reid stand on illegal immigration?

Harry spoke at BYU a few years ago and said something to the effect that he is often asked how as a Mormon he can be a democrat. He said he is democrat BECAUSE he is Mormon. 7/8th of the audience started choking at the same time! I do understand now how religious Catholics felt about Ted Kennedy.

Might be worth checking to see if any "Mine" claims were filed for that Federal Land ?

And why is Rory Reid so upset, as he should have nothing to do with this. Is it upsetting them making some big bucks, of which they feel entitled too????

We need to pray for God´s revelation of the truth of exactly what is going on in Washington D.C. during this current administration!

The Truth will set US free!

Each day we are confronted with more things Obama and his party have done to cause suffering to US!

Sowing and reaping are real/true!

This holy season of God´s love by offering His Son for our redemption is the perfect time for US to come together in His Love/Grace and stand up for Righteousness again!

Pray for all our elected leaders - that they stand up for US, not their special interests!

Senator Reid continues to flaunt himself as the only power, but God is sovereign and He will have the last word. Amen

How come no one here mentions that the Governor of Nevada stated that Bundy has paid all his taxes and is not behind?

I know there isn´t a reporter alive who has any clue what Honesty, Ethics and Integrity means or they would be all over Harry Reid and his connection to the Chinese Communist and the wind production.

No, #19. Reid did not inherit the title of sleaziest Member. He did the old-fashioned way. He stole it.
Reid is the perfect picture of sleaze. His sole function in office is to make himself and his family rich. Lying, cheating, stealing, whatever it takes. Money. Land. Power. It is not corrupt unless you get caught. And Reid has his hooks into enough judges that he can´t get caught. And he owns Diebold, so he can´t lose an election.
He learned his lessons from Plunkett of Tammany Hall, and has followed them well.
Every time he saw an opportunity, he took it.
And citizens of Nevada elected him. One man, one vote, once.
He wants the ranch so he can sell it to China. End of story.

Reid is the poster boy for corruption. Since he was recently re-elected, the only thing to do is make his life miserable. Show up at every event with posters. Everytime he sticks his nose out the door, there should be someone shoving the truth in his face. It probably won´t change him, but it will annoy the heck out of him. The same should be done to every corrupt lying politician especially the Liar on Chief. The people need to show their contempt.

Let’s see, a rancher hasn’t paid his grazing fees for 20 years, then one day a heavily armed government assault force threatens him. Wouldn’t you think our brave MSM would wonder what’s really going on here?

Regardless, the article coincidentally explains why the political future of the Democrat Party is bright with this statement: “more Americans are today on entitlements than working in the private sector" This is the formula for guaranteed electoral success for Democrats.

Just another theory:

Bundy refused offers to buy land

Tortoise boundaries redrawn to include Bundy´s ranch

Reid´s top aide becomes head of BLM

Normally when govt owed money they file liens

Kill/steal/sell cattle nothing left to graze land

Lose water/grazing rights

Water rights auctioned off

Who stands to gain?

#6 China isn´t trying to corner the rare earth market, they already own it and have for many years. Last estimate I saw was they produce 97%.

I believe US is only abundant in the light rare earths not the strategically critical heavy REs

On one side, ecologically-compatible turtles & cattle, and an AMERICAN rancher. On the other, government thug behavior, Harry & Rory Reid, their crony Neil Kornze, the communist Chinese, and Nevada/DC politics.

At issue: cattle fodder, green energy boondoggles (wind, solar), real estate development, and possibly rare earth minerals.

Sounds like a David vs Goliath mismatch, doesn´t it? However, having read my Bible, I´ve already laid off my bet...got good odds from the secular bookie, too.

#17: I agree with you and I´d also wistfully wish for Catherine Herridge (FOX) and Sharyl Attkisson (soon to be with FOX, I´ll wager) to be on the investigative team.

It´s long past the time for our media and our bloggers to include net worth, in print or sub titles every time a
Reid crook appears in the public eye.
Harry Reid net worth $25 million dollars.
Son, Rory Reid net worth $15 million dollar
Diane Feinstein net worth $50 million dollars
Feinstein´s husband net worth $100 million dollars

Every time, the plunder is displayed next to the name!
That is one more step in the right direction.

For Reid to have the nerve to show himself after America saw all the good people drive out violent government forces, is a perfect example of his power crazed, out of control, desperate frame of sick mind.,

It´s not just solar power, it´s not just rare-earth minerals, it´s about water. All over Nevada Reid and his cronies at the EPA and the BLM are pulling similar stunts to drive ranchers out of business to buy up their water rights and ship the water to Las Vegas.

Las Vegas has sucked the Colorado River dry. Developers and Casino Owners need the water. Reid supplies it to them, they fill his campaign coffers, and He buys all the votes in Clark County, where 80% of the state´s registered voters live. Add in all the illegal-alien SEIU casino workers and he wins elections.

He and his family make a few bucks on the side. He´s been manipulating land deals with the collusion of the EPA and BLM for years. How do you think he and his son amassed their fortunes?

Good to see Reid being exposed for the crook he is. Disgusting little man, the sort who would probably sell his mother in law. To those who see no more to this than Bundy broke a law, remember just because a law may have been enacted, it doesn´t mean it is good law. And anything that comes down from the Ninth Circuit [circus]Court of Appeals is automatically suspect. Bundy may well have prescriptive rights which could deter future lawsuits against him.

Watching the reaction of that rat Ried and his rat son, I’m beginning to think that whatever deal that was in the works with the Chinese might have been somewhat time-sensitive so they had to have the BLM move as soon as his crony took charge. That sneaky deal may be falling apart now due to the high public attention that has erupted, that would explain Dingy & Son’s panicky behavior. Dingy’s statement that this isn’t over indicates that this is personal to him.

With this land grab by robber barons backed by crooked politicians, I keep watching for Clint Eastwood to come riding in, lighting sticks of dynamite with his cigar.

#32, he would sell his mother, a lot of men would gladly sell their mother-in-law

#6-#9 – You are not invisible here. I see you. We have been betrayed by high treason.

I think the feds have put up our western state resources as collateral for the Chinese loans that keep our bloated gigantic government “functioning”. The Chinese are now moving in to personally control “their” assets. They are focusing first on mining and water. The “renewable energy” projects are the cover story and the enviro-communists are their shock troops.

Why has the timber industry been destroyed in the Pacific Northwest? Why do our forests stand idle with no meaningful harvesting? Why are our small towns dying? It ain’t because of the Spotted Owl. It’s to preserve this resource until the Chinese want to plunder our timber.

Why has the water been turned off to California’s Central Valley? Why are the orchards left to die, and the richest farmland in America left fallow? It ain’t because of the bait fish. It’s to open American markets to Chinese foodstuffs and for the central government to control our food like they now control our medical care.

Why are they planning on removing the dams from the Klamath River on the border of California and Oregon? It ain’t to preserve Salmon runs. It’s to remove rural populations off the land and to destroy private property. After the rural areas have been de-populated suburbia will be next.

It’s Agenda 21. It’s worldwide communism on the march. The goal is to move people into large city centers where they will be easier to control. Our Republic has been betrayed, our people have been betrayed, our heritage of liberty has been betrayed.

It´s not about rare earths, which aren´t all that rare ~ nor about water ~ that´s already under control of the Colorado River Water Commission.

It´s not even about using more and more of Utah for worthless low voltge solar farms.

This is about POWER, and whether or not Ol´Har has it.

There´s a deal out there somewhere and it´s up to Reid, the state party boss, and his sons, just like any Eastern potentate´s sons, to DEMONSTRATE that no one is safe from them and nothing goes on that they don´t control ~ in Utah!

This almost always means foreigners are looking in on the power broker to see if he can deliver.

BLM blew it.

Made the gub´mnt look bad, and Ol´Har helpless to do anything about it.

The Chicoms just cut the price in half!

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson expressed confidence that the federal government can successfully deal with the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border but it likely will cost billions of dollars to deal with the ongoing crisis. In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation.

President Obama on Wednesday announced new sanctions against Russia for its involvement in Ukraine and other foreign policy moves in response to several international concerns across the Middle East. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges."

Transcripts of congressional testimony released by the House Armed Services committee are the latest in a growing body of evidence that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were premeditated. Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress.

The central weakness of the Republican´s political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand. Republicans, especially in DC, can always be lured by

Jay Carney just left the White House podium and he’s already joined the ranks of George W. Bush, Tom Brokaw and Mike Ditka in one profitable enterprise: lecturing on the private speaking circuit. The former Obama administration flack signed on this month with the Washington Speakers Bureau, a gig that came with a signing bonus and is likely to yield payments as high as $100,000 per speech to share his personal presidential anecdotes and analysis of the next two election cycles. As the most recent high-profile person out the West Wing door, Carney can expect to be in high demand

In a speech urging his Senate colleagues to accept the thousands of unaccompanied minors crossing the border, Sen. Patrick Leahy reminded his colleagues of a time when the United States turned back Jews fleeing the Holocaust. “I also remind people of a time in the past around World War II where this country unwisely closed its borders to people who were fleeing the Holocaust in Germany,” Leahy said. “They came here, they were turned back, sent back, many of them to certain death in the death camps. That was a sorry part of our history.” Leahy urged Senators to move

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
