AN INCONVENIENT RANCHER: BLM Documents Show Bundy Targeted for Elimination by Feds' Solar Plans
ClashDaily.com ^ | 4/17/14 | Donald Joy

Posted on 04/18/2014 9:06:50 AM PDT by IChing

Once upon a time there were more than fifty cattle ranches operating in the area of Southern Nevada where Cliven Bundy, with the help of numerous armed patriots from all over, is making his stand against the abusive, bankrupting tactics of the bullying federal government.

Now, there is only one rancher and his family left.

After several generations of his ancestors’ having use of the land in question, Bundy is literally the “last man standing” in what is, evidently, a long-range vendetta against ranchers by land-grabbing federal bureaucrats who, also literally, have gone power mad–that is, mad for solar power scams (among other things) and all the big-dollar green graft that comes with it.

By now we all know that the official claim, that the confrontation has to do with protecting desert tortoises, is mostly just steaming bull patties.

ClashDaily.com has obtained evidence which indicates that the desert showdown at the Bundy ranch is actually the result of an expansive and ruthless federal strategy, aimed at bankrupting and driving away every last cattle rancher through increasingly exorbitant fees and endless rules, conditions, and red-tape. This is in order to clear the way for more politically-correct and politically connected (Sen. Harry Reid, his son, and a Chinese energy conglomerate) agendas such as solar energy boondoggles as far as the eye can see.

In a 77-page Federal Bureau of Land Management document titled “Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone,” key aspects of the government’s overall plan for facilitating massive solar energy projects in the region are discussed, specifically including the land where Bundy’s ranch is located. The report is linked here:

http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/wo/blm_library/tech_notes.Par.29872.File.dat/TN_444.pdf

Interesting note: In the process of writing this article, the link to the above document suddenly went “dead,” with only the following message showing–

“The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) website (www.blm.gov) and all associated websites/pages are currently unavailable due to planned maintenance on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 starting at 8:00 PM Mountain Time until approximately Midnight Mountain Time. The total outage time should be no more than 4 hours.”

Hmmmm. This comes on the heels of numerous reports from around the web that other key documents have been deleted from the BLM website in recent days, while the Bundy ranch situation has unfolded. (real transparent, Harry & Barry!)

Fortunately, ClashDaily.com‘s Doug Giles had the presence of mind to download/save the above document, which you can read here: Click Here to See the PDF

One of the other key documents is titled “Cattle Trespass Impacts & History of Cattle Trespass,” and it specifically discusses problems associated with Cliven Bundy’s livestock (yes, Bundy is mentioned by name multiple times) getting in the way of/interfering with contingencies to mitigate environmental impacts of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities on public lands.” Presuming BLM restores their website by the time you read this, it is linked here:

Suppose that Cliven Bundy had caved in and paid the disputed federal grazing fees all along. Do you suppose he’d have been able to stay in business, where others went bust? If so, would it even make any difference as to what the “authorities” have planned for the site? Seems they’d want him gone regardless, and would use any tactic, reasonable or not, to try get rid of him.

Cliven Bundy’s ranch and cattle exist directly in the path of very powerful interests’ conflicting intentions for the land. The deals Harry Reid and his son are involved in with a Chinese government-owned energy firm are well-documented by authoritative sources such as Reuters, and by now everyone knows that Reid’s former top advisor now runs the BLM.

If not for Bundy’s principled stubbornness in resisting heeding the escalating fees and conditions demanded from him over the years by the feds, combined with our U.S. Constitution’s 2nd Amendment and social media, we’d probably never have heard of the Bundy family. The government would have just bankrupted him and pushed him off the land as they did to all the other inconvenient ranchers over the years.

The feds have a court order they say they are trying to enforce. Since when does this corrupt administration act with anything remotely resembling good faith to our nation’s passed laws, to its own proper role and authority, or even to court rulings? Please.

In this real-life, modern Western saga of “cowboys and communists,” the dust has only been kicked up a little, and so far the cowboys and their patriot allies have held firm the line and won the day. If push comes to shove, what kind of people do you trust to carry this nation forward? Heroes who stand up to the organized federal shakedown racket, like Clive Bundy and company, or Harry Reid and his agents of a corrupt regime?

Certain commenters say that Harry Reid's and his son's solar deal with the Chinese has been called off, and that therefore this story is merely a "loosely supported conspiracy theory." I say the evidence points to the federal racketeers and green energy scam artists being determined to get rid of every last cattle rancher in that area, and going forward with alternative uses for the land. What say you?

A quick background as to why the BLM should not be harassing Cliven Bundy. This issue goes all the way back to the Confederation Papers, prior to the writing of our US Constitution.

Please remember that the Supreme Court has reversed more than 150 of earlier Supreme Court decisions on natural law. Is that what you would consider as someone being consistent and reliable in interpreting the Constitution?

The Resolution of 1780, "the federal trust respecting public lands obligated the united States to extinguish both their governmental jurisdiction and their title to land that achieved statehood."

In the Constitutional Convention of 1787, The Charter of Liberty contained these words, "The new Federal Government is an agent serving the states.", "The delegated powers are few and defined", "All powers not listed are retained by the states or the people", "The Resolution of 1780 formed the basis upon which Congress was required to dispose of territorial and public lands", "All laws shall be made by the Congress of the United States". (not agency bureaucrats!)

That should be sufficient for you to determine who all public lands belong to, hint - NOT the Federal Government!

"The Constitution is a written instrument. As such, it's meaning does not alter. That which it meant when adopted. it means now". So said the Supreme Court in South Carolina v United States in 1905

Articles of Confederation, Article VI, clause 1 All engagements entered into before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation. In Article IX "... no State shall be deprived of territory for the benefit of the United States."

Formation of a "more perfect union" does not absolve that union of prior engagements, including those obligations establish by the resolution of 1780 and the Articles of Confederation.

Our government system is established by compact, not between the Government and the State Governments but between the States as Sovereign Communities. By James Madison 1821 (This is what make the County Sheriffs the highest law enforcement officer in that County and gives him/her the authority to tell the BLM, the FBI or any other Federal Agency to get out of the County or they will be arrested and jailed.)

What I have written here is but a short piece of the process that the Founder went through to establish our Constitution and system of government.

Please view these videos and see if they don't change your mind about whether or not Cliven Bundy is in the wrong by defying the BLM.

This proves they not only want to stop Bundy from grazing his cattle on the government land, they also want Bundy’s land. What they will do is get one of their courts to take his ranch away from him for back taxes. If they refuse to leave they will bring in the military and kill them all.

I still wonder why Cruz and Palin aren’t out there screaming to high heaven about Reid’s deal. They could use the old Katy Couric tactic “Some say....”

I’ve got to stop reading about this. I may lose control.

BLM Seeks Public Interest for Solar Energy Development in the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Washington, D.C. - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) today announced that it is accepting preliminary right-of-way (ROW) applications and expressions of interest from interested parties for conducting a solar competitive auction on the 5,717–acre Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone in Clark County, Nevada.

Ah gee..so that one solar project was called off so there nothing to see..really?

Because we all know there only one solar project..and because we know once there stop that one project there will never be another

That as stupid as saying because the Keystone pipeline was canceled once it will never ever come back to life..and no other new pipe line will ever every be built on any part of the land proposed for the project?

See someone at sometime decided that land would be good for a solar project..but the ranchers were a problem..so remove the rancher..but one rancher remained..so the solar project stalls and gets “canceled”..but the people that were behind know you remove the final problem..the last rancher..that project can come back to life.

Its not unlike a certain radio guy who had a dream to create a news media empire..big Orson Welles fan
im very sure his plan hit many roadblocks along the way

and so im sure it looked like many many times his dream stalled out and died.

But when some roadblock got moved his dream came back to life and could move on .....funny how that happens..

maybe his final roadblock got moved when he made friends with the people that block and unblock roads created by little people like rancher .

you know what was Orson Welles famous movie..Oh yes Citizen Kane..what was the story..Oh yes..a media guy that start out to go after corruption and help the little guy ..get call a yellow journalist..longs for respectability.. and evolves to being corrupt in the end by being a friend of the corrupt

So what will Nevada do with all those solar panels to create electricity? Answer: Light up the casinos in Los Vegas and Reno even more. Seems really trivial to me. Farmers and ranchers raise food for the world’a hungry and poor. Casinos are the playground for the wealthy. Do you detect hypocrisy here?

Fox News reported 3 days back that the BLM hired a Utah Cowboy [=Rustler, IMHO ] and he was paid > $900,000 to invade, roundup, steal and transport the bulk of Bundy’s cattle to Utah to be sold at auction.

Fox News also reported that the BLM paid >$300,000 to a Utah auctioneer to auction off Bundy’s Cattle, in Utah.

All paid for and/or charged to YOU, the ultimate sucker taxpayer!

_______________

So many names apply to very late stage senility patient Harry Reid, and his hired guns:

Reid’s Rustlers
Reid’s Cattle Rustlers
Feudal Lord Reid’s Raiders.

Feudal Lord Reid of the Bureau of Feudal Land Management wants to make Nevada his personal Fief!

Holder had his glory days with “Fast and Furious” and escaped with an Exec. Order from his Chicago ‘Hood pal, Barry Soetoro.

Now “Kill the last cows in the Country” Reid wants his 15 minutes of Glory.

Will the cowardly doormat Republican Leadership in the US House even consider holding Reid accountable for the taxpayer-funded slaughter of Nevada Rancher Bundy’s cattle?

Neighboring Arizona US Senator “Wacko Bird” McCain has not yet thrown his full moral weight of approval to Senate Classmate Reid, but it could happen any day now.

Shouldn’t the ACLU, or PETA have a “beef” with the taxpayer-paid slaughter of Rancher Bundy’s personal Cattle?

Or will Feudal Lord Reid and his hired Rustlers get bailed out by another Executive Order from the infamous pen of “You Lie” Obama?

Feudal Lord Reid and “You Lie” Obama, a dastardly duo on the Democrat dung heap of History!

MOOOOOOOOOOVE………. FORWARD !

I am thinking about the Chinese connection to all this (always dangerous, me engaging in thinking), so, here are some speculations.

China holds a whole lot of our worthless treasuries, and it is possible that they are demanding “payback” by taking our physical assets.

It is known that China is buying up all of the west’s gold. And there is speculation that there is no longer any physical gold at Fort Knox - all has been leased, or “re-hypothecated”.

I have read that the land the Chinese purchased in Nevada was sold to them (with Dirty Harry & family’s “help”) for 10 cents on the dollar. The Chinese also bought a major building in NYC (JP Morgan’s?) way below assessed value. This all needs fact-checking, of course.

This land for the solar project is not where Bundy had the grazing and water rights, but Bundy’s land was needed for the “carbon credits”, as an required offset.

If the Feds can’t get Bundy off the land, the solar project cannot take place, and I have read that the Chinese have backed off from proceeding with the project for the time being, perhaps for legal reasons.

If any of these suppositions are true, then Dirty Harry & family might in a big pickle, having been financially compensated for their services. Is so, it suggests more trouble ahead for the Bundys.

.
That would be too seriously a charge — it almost sounds like high treason committed by the head senator. Don’t forget that politicians, when the chips are down, will protect each other.

Wait till more is known and Megan Kelly will expose it on the “Kelly Files” on Fox News.

That is, unless some politician or agency gets to her first.

Just because some politicians sold out the state of Nevada doesn’t mean the laws have changed. Expecting the federal Courts to surrender their power at this stage in the game is wishful thinking. When you have time watch the videos and see if they don’t change your mind on the subject.

As I understand it the Bundy ranch isn’t in the actual solar panel area, rather it is in the acreage these pagans meant to use as atonement to the earth goddess for killing all those turtles. This is supposed to make you and I and the grub worms feel better about electricity production.

A stretch of largely vacant federal lands in Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado may hold more recoverable oil than all the rest of the world put together

http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/energy/item/11387-the-green-river-formation-worlds-largest-oil-shale-deposits

The government owning all this land is socialism/communism . this land should be returned to private companies so that they can develop the vast oil resources

The federal government owns 86% of the land of Nevada . that is unconstitutional as this shows:

http://benswann.com/lofti-who-actually-owns-americas-land-a-deeper-look-at-the-bundy-ranch-crisis/

Nevada or individuals own that land not the federal government. that is pure marxism/socialism(fed owning all that land in Nevada and other states). the gov are using that land for environmentalism(communism/marxism) and corruption when private industry like that rancher Bundy, oil companies and others could be using it to produce oil , beef etc.

Also, just because the Reids’ deal with the Chinese had the brakes put on it doesn’t mean it can’t or won’t get back underway asap.

Bundy has gone ‘round and ‘round in the ocurts over all this, and his argument at this point seems to be to challenge federal jurisdiction in the matter. Makes sense to me. Seems like the feds and speciasl interests have just been running roughshod over cattle ranchers there for quite some time.

LMAO!!!! Love it!!!

Someone on the article’s thread said that if the commies can somehow get Bundy’s cattle to be called “assault cows” by the media, it’ll be full-on lefty jihad against Bundy and supporters etc. lol

The Chinese deal fell through, but First Solar & Harry Reid recently broke ground on their project, same ramifications as before with the EPA & BLM.

US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid joins Moapa Band of Paiutes Chairwoman Aletha Tom, First Solar CEO James Hughes, LADWP director of power system planning and development Randy Howard, and the Moapa Band of Paiutes Tribal Council to break ground on the 250 MW Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project.

Somewhere I read about the details of BLM’s contract they wanted Bundy to sign, and if he had signed it, he would have been finished, as the terms were so restrictive as to put him out of business.

Trouble is, I can’t remember which website, where- but it seemed legitimate.

I will try to go back and find it, might spot it in my browser’s history, but will be tough if it was a post in comments.

There is plenty for Kelly to expose right now. The Chinese-Reid-Rory connection is fact.

Exactly. Moochers pretending to be producers.

Says much.
