Senator Harry Reid, who has been implicated in using the BLM to steal a Nevada Rancher’s land for his friends at a Chinese Solar Company, is now threatening the rancher with further federal action.
In a statement given to NBC4 in Reno, Reid said, “it’s not over.” … “We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.”
But as many in the area are pointing out, this has little to do with the cattle, and more to do with Reid’s attempt to steal even more Nevada land to enrich himself and help fund his son’s political ambitions. It’s pretty ironic that someone who has made millions violating the law, is now using the “law” as a justification for an armed invasion on American soil.
Harry Reid: the architect of the Bundy Ranch Invasion?
The Bureau of Land Management is headed by longtime friend and former Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as armed BLM agents descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nevada. Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, has been the chief representative to the Chinese solar firm, which is trying to use land near the Bundy Ranch to build a $5 billion solar plant.
Over the years, the Harry Reid has used his political influence to make a number of similar shady deals throughout Nevada. He’s been accused of doing business with the mob and using his influence to manipulate zoning ordinances throughout the state – in one instance making over $700,000 that he failed to disclose, because of his partnership with a Las Vegas lawyer whose name has surfaced in federal investigations involving organized crime.
Supporters still at Bundy Ranch, armed and ready for a possible confrontation.
Bundy supporters remain at the ranch, fully expecting a raid from the Federal Government. According to World News Daily, The executive director of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association says his sources inside the federal government is warning that the BLM’s weekend retreat was only a move to distract attention and diffuse tensions, and that a raid on the family’s ranch still is planned.
Richard Mack, the former sheriff of Grisham County, Ariz. told WND “I don’t think it would be possible” to launch a raid without violence. “I don’t think the Bundys would lie down and be taken.” In a separate Radio Interview given late this afternoon, Mack said his sources at the BLM and inside the Las Vegas Metro Police Department confirmed that a raid was imminent.
This afternoon, federal officers could be seen moving back into the area, along with a number of Clark County officers who arrived with a large prison transportation bus.
