Sen. Reid Behind BLM Grag Of Bundy Ranch

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 “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.”
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.
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 Cliven 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.
Update #2: 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.

New York Gun Owners Refuse To Register Weapons

Kit Daniels - New York gun owners will likely ignore a looming deadline to register their firearms under the state’s latest gun control law, following the lead of thousands of Connecticut residents who recently did the same under a similar law.

Both states passed draconian gun control laws last year and New York’s version, the SAFE Act, bans the sale of semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines and one “military-style” feature, like standard AR-15s for example, and demands that gun owners who already possess such rifles to register them by April 15.
“People are pretty much convinced once they [the state] get on this registration, the next time they’ll say they’ve got to turn them in,” Stephen Aldstadt, president of the Shooters Committee on Political Education, said to the Associated Press.
The New York Police Department has already proved that to be the case.
Last November, the NYPD began sending out notices to registered gun owners demanding that they give up their firearms now banned within the city limits.
The police knew which gun owners to send the notices to by using a centralized firearms registry which lists the city’s gun owners and what firearms they have in their possession.
And the state’s gun owners are well-aware that gun confiscations can expand beyond the boroughs of New York City.
“I refuse to comply,” one gun owner from West Seneca stated.
Another gun owner from Greenville said that he wasn’t aware of anyone who planned to register their guns. “I hope nobody does,” he added.
It appears that they will replicate the recent mass revolt by gun owners in neighboring Connecticut.
Connecticut’s unconstitutional law required residents to register ammunition magazines capable of carrying more than 10 rounds with state police by Jan. 1, 2014, but weeks after the deadline, authorities admitted that only around 38,000 out of 2.4 million high-capacity magazines and just over 50,000 out of hundreds of thousands of semi-automatic rifles were registered with the state.
“So, where did these millions of magazines go?” journalist Warner Todd Huston wrote. “All that can be said is that it appears that gun owners in Connecticut are not quite the sheep that jackbooted government officials may have imagined they were.”
“After all, if there really were millions of high capacity magazines in the state – and it is very likely that there are – and they have now gone unregistered, that means that thousands of gun owners have refused to bow to this unconstitutional, anti-Second Amendment law.”
And New York’s gun owners will undoubtedly do the same.

Rand Paul Leads Republican Canidates Like Noah In 2016 Presidential Race

A new nationwide poll found that Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are leading the field of potential 2016 presidential candidates.
Mr. Paul and Mr. Huckabee won support from 13 percent of those surveyed, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was nipping at their heels with 11 percent.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz each pulled in 9 percent.
“With a field of quality candidates, it is no surprise that no one has broken away from the pack,” said Chris Wilson, CEO of WPA Opinion Research, which did the poll. “The important thing at this point of the race is staying in the conversation, and the fact that Rand Paul, Huckabee, Bush, Christie and Cruz are all managing to do that bodes well for them long term.”
The survey also showed that the Republican and Republican-leaning respondents surveyed believed that Mr. Paul, Mr. Christie and Mr. Bush had the best chance of beating Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical general election showdown.
Christie is clearly not the first choice among GOP voters overall, but when you look at which candidate Republicans believe can beat Hillary Clinton there is evidence that the theory a moderate Republican can beat a liberal Democrat still holds some sway,” the pollster noted. “It’s a shame some Republicans haven’t learned the lessons of nominating moderate candidates like Bob Dole, John McCain or Mitt Romney.”
The telephone poll of 801 people was conducted March 18-20.
Rep. Paul Ryan, the party’s 2012 vice presidential nominee, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio were tied for sixth place, with 6 percent of the vote. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker received 5 percent and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal received 3 percent, as did former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum

Putin vs.Obama " A Real Man Versus A Metrosexual"


Gov. Scott Walker Stands By Religious Tweet

Todd Starnes - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker believes he can do all things through Christ, but an atheist group charges that he cannot do all things through Christ on his official social media platforms.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation has demanded Walker remove posts from his official Facebook and Twitter feeds that read, “Philippians 4:13.”
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” the verse reads.
The atheist outrage over the governor’s beliefs seems almost unbelievable.
“This braggadocio verse coming from a public official is rather disturbing,” FFRF co-presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Baker wrote in a letter to the governor. “To say, ‘I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me,’ seems more like a threat, or the utterance of a theocratic dictator, than a duly elected civil servant.”
They accused the governor of misusing his authority to “promote not just religion over non-religion, but one religion over another in a manner that makes many Wisconsin citizens uncomfortable.”
The atheist outrage over the governor’s beliefs seems almost unbelievable.
I reached out to Walker’s office, and his staff told me the governor has absolutely no plans to remove anything.
“Governor Walker will not remove the post on his social media,” press secretary Laurel Patrick told me. “The verse was part of a devotional he read that morning, which inspired him, and he chose to share it.”
I can’t seem to recall a tweet generating such histrionics from an atheist group. Normally, they reserve that sort of faux fury for the Baby Jesus or a high school football prayer.
The FFRF said Walker has a responsibility to “uphold the entirely godless and secular U.S. Constitution.”
“It is improper for a state employee, much less for the chief executive officer of the state, to use the machinery of the State of Wisconsin to promote personal religious views,” they wrote.
The governor’s office clearly disagrees.
“While he frequently uses his social media to engage with Wisconsinites on matters of public policy, he also uses it to give them a sense of who he is,” Patrick said. “This does just that – it was a reflection of his thoughts for the day.”
So in that spirit, here’s my thought for the day. Perhaps the next time the FFRF finds itself aggrieved, perhaps it could post its outrage on Facebook or Twitter. I’m sure there’s an emoticon to express disbelief
