HARRY REID'S SON REPRESENTING CHINESE SOLAR PANEL PLANT IN $5 BILLION NEVADA DEAL
Breitbart ^ | 9/14/2012 | By Wynton Hall

Posted on 04/11/2014 2:09:28 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

The son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Rory Reid, is the primary representative for ENN Energy Group, a Chinese energy company seeking to build a $5 billion solar panel plant on a 9,000-acre Clark County desert plot in Laughlin, Nevada.

ENN scored big when Clark County commissioners unanimously voted to sell the Chinese company the public land for just $4.5 million, despite the fact that it was appraised at $38.6 million.

Sen. Reid has been one of ENN’s biggest supporters, having recruited the company during a 2011 trip to China. According to Reuters, last month Sen. Reid tried to “pressure Nevada's largest power company, NV Energy, to sign up as ENN's first customer.”

Both Rory Reid and Harry Reid deny having ever discussed the $5 billion Chinese solar panel plant deal:

"I have never discussed the project with my father or his staff," said Rory Reid. Kristen Orthman, a spokeswoman for the senator, said he had not discussed the project with his son.

This isn’t the first time the Reids have come under fire for alleged cronyism. In 2003, allegations emerged that Nevada industries frequently lobbied Sen. Reid through his well-connected relatives.

Let the gravy flow.

This is why people spend many millions to win an election for a job that pays $200,000.

That’s how the Chinese do business. It’s all mixed together, government and business. Communist Party privilege.

There was always an argument that doing business would help China to become more like us, like our system. It was a basic argument for “constructive engagement”.

But it’s made us become more like their system. Fully corrupt.

Reid is the epitome of the corruption in DC. I hope to one day hear he’s behind bars, wearing a diaper and a drool cup fastened to his chin.

What? He found more endangered Desert tortoise habitat to close to off from public because the Ninja turtles were dying off, then build a solar plant on paved with mirrors...AGAIN?

Shocked I tell you. Shocked.

But the Chinese weren't going to kill the tortoises (and mix them in with their shark fin soup.).

No, they were going to put mini solar panels on their backs so that the tortoises could help solve America's energy problem.

I’m sure you’re knowledgeable enough to realize that application of the proper “grease” will make these things run smoothly.
Harry got his training from the Nevada mob just like Caliph Baraq did from the Chicago branch and Pelosi from the East Coast crew.

We see what you Fed rats did there... The U.S. government is rounding up Bundy's cattle that it says have been grazing illegally on public lands for more than 20 years, according to the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service. Between Saturday and Wednesday, contracted wranglers impounded a total of 352 cattle, federal officials said.

Yep - disgusting! GOP does it too, but nobody does it as well as Reid. The rule of law is dead.

Krissy Thornton, right, and Burgundy Hall are among those protesting the U.S. government's roundup of a rancher's cattle near Bunkerville, Nevada, on Wednesday, April 9. A 20-year dispute between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and federal rangers erupted into an Old West-style showdown this week. The government says Bundy's livestock has been illegally grazing on U.S. lands for 20 years. Bundy says his family's cattle has grazed on the land since the 1800s.

Action Alert: Boots On The Ground Need Donations for food and water at Bundy Ranch Standoff

Oath Keepers is asking all who cannot make the trip to the Bundy Ranch in Nevada to assist this mobilization by donating for food and water for the “Boots On The Ground” who will stand to oppose the idiocy of the BLM/federal government. Whatever you can send will be a blessing for the Patriots out there in the Nevada landscape. Just as in any military combat operation, the supply lines are extremely important for victory. You are the logistical support for those on the front line. Please know that your generosity is as important as the presence of the Patriots who are standing out there on the land. And also remember, whether you can donate for the logistics or not, your prayers for our victory are also important.

Hmmmmm........a-n-o-t-h-e-r Reid/energy connection?

HARRY REID IS LIVID THAT HIS GRAND-DAUGHTER HAS BEEN OUTED AS A RECIPIENT OF LAUNDERED CAMPAIGN CASH---Reid lashed out at reporters, saying, “My granddaughter has been the target of harassing phone calls, strangers tracking her down, knocking on her door and negative, unwanted attention on the Internet.” “This has gone too far and it needs to stop now,” Reid said. “I deeply regret any role I had in creating this situation but now, as a grandparent, I say enough is enough.”

============================================

Besides the "jewelry company" financed by her grandfather, Ryan Elisabeth Reid runs the Sprat Theater Company, a small theater in Brooklyn, which is also coming under scrutiny. According to Sprat’s Theatre Company Web site, it has received grants/contributions from:

<><> the Clinton Global Initiative (connected to global terrorism via Muslim Brotherhood employee),
<><> two major Las Vegas foundations:
Caesar’s Foundation, and the NV Energy Foundation.

NOTE NV Energy Foundation---is a non-profit division of NV Energy (a public utility). The NV Energy utility is a subsidiary of MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company which took over in 2013.

NEED TO KNOW Did Harry Reid use US government power, US govt agencies, his Senate office, and/or tax resources to enrich any of the above-named energy-related entities?

=================================================

NEED TO KNOW Did Harry Reid use US government power, US govt agencies, his Senate office, and/or tax resources to enrich the multiple corporations connected to tax-exempt Caesar's Foundation? Did any of its principles, trustees and staff contribute to Harry Reid?

Caesar's Foundation Trustees

Chair Janet Beronio

Vice-Chair Jan Jones

Trustee Diane Wilfong

Trustee Tom Jenkin

Trustee Fred Keeton

Trustee Dan Nita

Trustee John Payne

Caesar's Foundation Staff

Executive Director Thom Reilly

Administrator Judi Brown

Secretary / Legal Scott Wiegand

Treasurer Torben Cohrs

Community Affairs Gwen Migita

=========================================

email: enforcement @SEC.gov

==================================================

The SEC and IRS should examine every document filed by (a) The Clinton Global Initiative, (b) Caesar's Foundation and (c) The NV Energy Foundation

Every official tax-exempt document needs to be scrutinized in conjunction w/ possible connections to Harry Reid.

Perjury, forgery, govt fraud, and voter fraud need to be considered. For example: people may have been coached to lie on voter registration forms, and perhaps candidacy papers falsified.

Falsifying Official Public Documents involves altering, changing, or modifying a document for the purpose of deception.......can also involve forgery and/or passing copies of false documents. Falsifying documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as extortion, government fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, financing terrorism........

================================================

BTW, here's Harry w/ his grand-daughter....the one who got $31,000 in laundered campaign funds for her (ahem) "jewelry company."

Reid and granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid.
Photo: UPI (left) and Instagram (right).

So if you see Ryan on the street, be nice, and say hello.

Supposedly this is why they are trying to kick Cliven Bundy off his grazing acreage. So convenient about the tortoise.

BLM employees should now know that they are fighting on the side of corrupt politicians and the Chinese gov’t controlled companies against American citizens.

Continuing to do so to save their jobs should result in trials. They have no excuses at this point.

The govt is going to go in there and murder lots of people. The media will spin it as the legitimate killing of “antigovernment whackos” a la waco (you won’t hear a peep about harry reid.) and the ignorant american people will buy it.

This is the new america where left wing tyranny reigns supreme.
