Harry Reid will never get the treasure by sending troops to storm Bundy Ranch!

Special Editorial Article posted at High Noon in the Wild Wild West on Saturday 12 April 2014 at The Lantern Journal by Jim Lantern, Independent voter in Norman Oklahoma USA
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, is behind the entire ordeal involving the Bundy Ranch conflict with the federal government in Nevada.
Until this morning, people were misled into believing that the conflict was in part about the Bundy Ranch grazing cattle on federal land, not paying fees, and owing the federal government a significant amount of money. Then late yesterday another part of it was revealed. The federal government set aside the disputed land as some kind of a sanctuary for turtles. Seriously. The cattle were perceived to be a threat to turtles. However, then the turtle population exploded, and so the federal government had to go in and start killing many of the turtles in order to reduce their population. This is what happens when government interferes with nature. Nature fights back. Even so, very early this morning, much more has been revealed – and even now as I write this more continues to be revealed.
In an attempt to hide evidence, the Bureau of Land Management has removed documents from its website showing that the plan to force the Bundy family and their cattle off of the disputed land is partly because their presence (mainly the grazing of cattle) is interfering with the development of solar energy there. So it’s not just about saving turtles, and it’s not just about money owed to the federal government for cattle grazing fees.
Harry Reid, and Rory Reid – his oldest son, have been involved in key support and implementation of a $5 billion-dollar solar plant being built in the county by a Chinese company!
The BLM officially claimed it is only targeting the Bundy Ranch because its cattle are a threat to an endangered species of turtle. That claim bit the dust after it was revealed the agency itself has engaged in the widespread slaughter of the turtles when the land became overpopulated by them.
Harry Reid’s involvement in the Bundy Ranch attack is confirmed by the fact that his former senior adviser also served as the director of the BLM. Reid redrew the land boundaries of the endangered tortoise’s protected habitat to benefit a big money donor.
A BLM report entitled “Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone” reveals that the Bundy Ranch 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.
As a fan and writer of science fiction, as well as interested in science, I’m a strong supporter of solar energy development . . . but only for it here to benefit Americans, businesses and jobs. Harry Reid is selling out America – giving land, business and jobs, to China. It should be done in a way that creates new businesses and jobs for Americans, and does not interfere with other energy sources, and other kinds of businesses – including the cattle and farming industry.
“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…
- New Mexico
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.
“Harry 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 those reports are in plain view, the mainstream news media has so far ignored them. This is just one of many important news stories not being covered by CNN – and others – while being distracted and focused on other less important news stories. Missing Malaysian flight MH370 Boeing 777, crew and passengers, is an important news story, but not enough to justify the amount of coverage it has been getting, causing CNN – and others – to neglect other more important news stories. Distraction is the goal. While the news media puppets of the federal government have got you focused elsewhere, the federal government – while not being more closely observed by the news media – is more able to get away with doing things that are not in the best interest of Americans, American businesses, and American jobs.
“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.”
The problem began with Nevada ceding land to the federal government – which now owns about 84% of Nevada. If a new map of Nevada were to be drawn, to exclude the federal-owned land, then the remaining true State of Nevada would be as small as Rhode Island. You’ve heard of RINOs – Republicans In Name Only, and DINOs – Democrats In Name Only. Now we have SINOs – States In Name Only. So, basically, Nevada is a SINO – a State In Name Only. It’s not just Nevada. It’s happening to other states. State governments are betraying their own state citizens. As the federal government and federal lands increase, the state governments and state-owned lands decrease – as well as most of the privately owned lands such as was the Bundy Ranch in the past. So the State of Nevada took land from Bundy, probably the state level version of eminent domain, then gave it to the federal government, which then basically turned it over to China. If this isn’t treason against the United States of America, then I don’t know what else could be. It is treason. The states, as we have known them, are now vanishing. It’s like a magic trick of distraction and illusion. While you are focused on the endless news coverage by CNN of missing MH370, sitting comfortably in your easy chair in front of your big flat screen TV, the federal government is magically teleporting you, your easy chair, and TV over into the new American Federal Lands of China. Just give it a few more minutes, and there will no longer be a United States of America. Like the sound of it? Go ahead, try it on for size. American Federal Lands of China – AFLC. Toss out your fork, knife, and spoon – especially your steak knife, after the eating of beef and all or most other meat is banned by vegetarians. Get use to using chopsticks.
Especially as an American patriot, not just an Independent voter now strongly leaning in favor of the political conservative right, I’m almost physically shaking with anger – rage – as I’ve been reading this morning the ongoing stream of articles published on the Internet by top news sources, now exposing the true cause of the Bundy Ranch conflict in Nevada. Also, it’s not just Nevada. Other states have been targeted by the US Federal Government . . . and China . . . as far left liberal Democrats – such as Harry Reid – continue to engage in gross abuse of power. So this is another reason why conservatives must keep the House of Representatives, must take back the US Senate in November 2014, and must take back the White House in November 2016.
This morning’s revelations should make this the Number One news story of the mainstream news media, because of how many Americans it really is effecting. All of us – not just conservatives, Libertarians, Republicans, and Tea Party members.
Make no mistake about it, that what is happening in Nevada should be of great concern to you even if you don’t live in Nevada.
Just one of the many kinds of impact, for example, will be the increasing price of beef at the grocery store, as beef becomes harder to get because of more cattle ranchers being forced out of business by a federal government that is more interested in making deals with China than feeding Americas and maintaining American businesses and American jobs.
This is deadly serious. If it were my decision to make, if I had the authority, I’d charge Harry Reid – and all those people associated with him on this issue – with treason against the United States of America. I’d strip them of their US citizenship, and then deport all of them – ban them from ever again setting foot in the USA. What they are doing to hurt this country is not just a sin. It is the greed-driven willful evil of a vulture culture they have created here in the USA.
By the way, as you may have guessed, I’m not a vegetarian. I don’t eat grass. Cows eat grass. I eat cows. While I strongly believe in “each to their own way of life” – such as vegetarians – I consider their thinking to be as close to alien as any human can get without actually being from another planet. Even so, considering my unusual metabolism, I might be closer to being alien than they are. I must have the kind of protein I can only get from most kinds of meat. My health would further decline and I would eventually die without it. They do not feel the same way about “each to their own way of life” as I do. They want to ban all or most meat eating. They get into positions of authority and then engage in abuse of power to do so.
PETA is probably involved in protecting cows from humans, too.
If this nonsense in our government is allowed to continue, then Earth will become The Planet of the Cows, and Turtles, and Chinese, and Vegetarians (of which at least the cows will like that part of the deal).

Nevada Cattle Rancher Wins ‘Range War’ With Federal Government – ABC News http://abcn.ws/1icdgeG via @ABC at Twitter.
UPDATE 7:00 a.m. CT Sunday 13 April 2014
Please read the very important article I wrote yesterday after this article about the above noted ABC News article – where ABC News censored reader comments – deleted all comments (including mine) about Harry Reid making a land deal with a Chinese solar energy company – the real reason for removing the cattle…
Please also read the article I wrote about the Bundy Ranch news story before this article…
Now, to milk this subject for all it’s worth, and to balance out my anger, I must now unleash some humor…
“You have two cows”
- Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.
- Communism: You have two cows. You give them to the Government, and the Government then gives you some milk.
- Fascism: You have two cows. You give them to the Government, and the Government then sells you some milk.
- Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
- Nazism: You have two cows. The Government takes both and shoots you.
- New Dealism: You have two cows. The Government takes both, shoots one, buys milk from the other cow, then pours the milk down the drain.
The problem in all that is basically government. It is bad enough with government standing between me and my doctor – if I still had one. It is unacceptable for government to stand between me and my food.
Absolute Monarchy: The king has two cows. He and his cows live off the fat of the land while the poor peasants in the land starve. Then the peasants revolt. At the end he gets hanged, and the cows take power over the peasants. then the cows milk the peasants and put them in slaughter houses to later consume.
American Taxes Part I: You have two cows. The government has borrowed thousands upon thousands of cows from other countries and slaughtered them all, and confiscates one of yours. Rather than logically returning a cow to another country, they send it off to another country so that the terrorist cells there can use it to trade for guns.
American Taxes Part II: You have one cow. The government finds out that terrorists they recently donated a cow to have traded it in for weapons, and confiscate your remaining cow to provide milk to soldiers for a ten-year war effort to eliminate the terrorist threat. You, having no cows, have done your patriotic duty, and are now in poverty.
Anarcho-capitalism: You have two cows. It is your natural right to have these cows. However, as the state is a threat to your right of self-regulation, the courts, military, and police force ought to be replaced by Private Defense Agencies. If one of your cows is stolen, and you can afford a PDA, you may get it back, assuming the thief has not purchased the services of a competing PDA.
Autocracy: You had two cows, by the grace of the beloved father dictator.
Aristocracy: You have two cows. You sell both and buy one really big cow – with a pedigree.
Soviet Russia: Two cows have you.
British Democracy: You have two cows. You feed them sheep’s brains and they go mad. The government doesn’t do anything.
Bureaucracy: You have two cows. At first the government regulates what you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them. Then it takes both, shoots one, milks the other dry and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing cows.
Bureaucratic Socialism: You had two cows. The government takes them from you. Your cows now are cared for by ex-chicken farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the government took from the chicken farmers. The government gives you as much milk and eggs the regulations say you should need.
Bushism: A couple dozen Al-Cowda terrorists attack domestic locations while you’re reading “My Pet Goat.” You immediately get your Attorney General working on figuring out how to suspend “Habeas Cowpus.” Later, you hear that a camel-populated cowntry (unrelated to the attacks) might have weapons of mass digestion. You have two cows with which you invade that country. Hey, “You go to war with the cows you have, not the cows you *wish* you had.” Your cows are the best in the world at what they were trained to do and immediately graze away the existing pasture-al structure of that country. Only one of your cows speaks camel-ise and you just found out that he’s gay – you discharge him from service with great haste. Your popularity moooves lower and lower as the camels reject your cud-chewing philosophies. Caught in a lose/lose situation you offer the strategy of “Staying the Cows.”
Bill Clintonism: You have two cows. The President’s wife tries to take one, she fails and Democrats lose Congress. You then get to keep your cows, sell the milk, keep the profits, and “triangulate” yourself to appear as if you are sharing with others. The people with no cows get mad, but you get fellatioed by one of the cows, the Republicans try to impeach you, and the people with no cows get mad at them!
California: You have millions of cows. They make real California cheese. Only 5 speak English. Most are illegals. Their leader once starred in a cow bodybuilding movie and has a lovechild.
Cayman Islands: You have two cows. You don’t need to pay any taxes about them.
Communism – modern Chinese: You have no cows. The government sets up a joint venture with McDonald’s and issues a proclamation saying that even though it is capitalism it is still socialist. You would be confused, but you learned doublethink in the public schools so there’s no problem. Everyone is happy and the Chinese government is both happy and wealthy.
Capitalism: You have no cows. The bank will not lend you money to buy cows, because you don’t have any cows to put up as collateral. Go and sell your cows for a third of their original cost. The bank takes 10.3% of that third of their original cost, your employer takes another 16.4%, the local government unofficially takes 35%, the secret police liberate 12.1%, the bank takes another 10.3%, and the Democratic party takes 32.6%.
Democracy – American: You have two cows. The government exercises those powers delegated to it by the people, who are sovereign. The majority does not rule because the people and their representatives (elected, appointed and employed) are constrained by various checks and balances, including the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the three co-equal branches of government, and the 50 state republics (see, e.g., Article IV, section 4). So what the government does with your cows and with the milk is somehow not involved with what the people want.
Environmentalism: You had two cows. PETA and other environmentalists came along, took them, released them into the wild (where they are immediately eaten by the wildlife in a gruesome way), kicked your ass, burned down your house, fucked your wife, other female relatives, left you and your family naked, since they also believe clothes fuck up the environment.
Internet: You have tucows. Use it to download shit.
Republic: You have two cows. You vote for a representative who promises to vote for you to get the milk, but somehow the milk gets lost once it reaches the representative.
American Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.
British Capitalism: You have two cows. Both are mad.
Chinese Capitalism: You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the journalist who reported the numbers.
French Capitalism: You have two cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.
German Capitalism: You have two cows. You reengineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.
Japanese Capitalism: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create clever cow cartoon images called Cowkimon and market them worldwide, making millions off the perverted geeks who actually buy that shit.
Polish Capitalism: You have two cows. Germany invades, annexing off the rear of the cow on the left. You do nothing, acknowledging that such activity is a national pastime in Germany.
Russian Capitalism: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 12 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.
Spanish Capitalism: You have two cows, but you don’t know where they are. You break for siesta.
Italian Capitalism: You have two cows and you can’t say where you got them. You happily fill your house of cheese.
New Zealand Capitalism: You have two cows and the one on the right is looking pretty sexy…
Australian Capitalism: You have two cows, business is good so you decide to close up and have a few beers.
Saturday 12 April 2014: You have two cows. One is watching CNN on TV. The other is out in the field looking for missing Malaysian flight 370 Boeing 777, crew and passengers.
