The Nevada rancher who forced the federal Bureau of Land Management to back down last week may have been targeted because a Chinese solar company with ties to Sen. Harry Reid's son wants the land for an energy plant, several websites report.

A report on Godfatherpolitics.com, says Chinese energy giant ENN Energy Group wants to use federal land as part of its effort to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel-building plant in the southern Nevada desert. Rory Reid, the son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is representing ENN in their efforts to locate in Nevada.

Part of the land ENN wants to use was purchased from Clark County at well below appraised value. Rory Reid is the former Clark County Commission chairman, and he persuaded the commission to sell 9,000 acres of county land to ENN on the promise it would provide jobs for the area, Reuters reported in 2012.

In addition to the county acreage, the federal Bureau of Land Management at one time was looking at BLM property under dispute with cattle rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM is headed by former Harry Reid senior policy adviser Neil Kornz.

According to BizPac Review, BLM documents indicate that the federal property for which Bundy claims grazing rights were under consideration by a solar energy company. Those documents have since been removed from BLM's website, but BizPac quotes from one of them:

"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."

No, cattle ranching is not “durable” with the presence of trespass Chinese solar.

So much less expensive if you don’t have to buy the land and can instead buy a congressman to take it for you.

Hasn’t it already been demonstrated that these mega-solar panel sites cause significant harm to wildlife because of the intense heat and potential harm to aircraft flying overhead because of the massive reflective glare which could cause problems for pilots’ vision? And how many of these giant solar fields have already gone belly-up leaving the solar panels in deserts like a massive garbage dump?

This has been debunked...I despise Reid but the solar company pulled out a year ago and the land was 170 miles away

The debunking only exists on which solar field one is talking about. There are more than one at issue here and this article goes into detail of the real misdirection being played here.

I have heard that Dingy Harry owns land just north of Searchlite, AZ, which is nothing more than a dusty wide spot in the road between Las Vegas and Lauglin. Apparently that particular land has been set aside for real estate development to create a “bed room” community for LV. (How interesting). If Slimy Harry has land (however HE got hold of it)for such development, why does he not offer up that land for the solar collector site? There is a lot of open space around there.

Should ENN decide to “evict” (meaning run off) ranchers from their land to build a solar collector plant, my guess their could be a lot of potential power outages once, and if ever they get into operation. Pissed off ranchers are nobody to be fighting with.

Years ago it was usual practice to make trade offs down to individuals for land exchanges. We were involved in such a deal for a small parcel. Resources and time made/make such deals worthwhile1 even 170 miles apart for such deals In areas as large as Nevada it is not a long/prohibited distance.

These multibillion dollar deals don’t “go away”, they just relocate.

Clearly, Commissar Reid wants the land as a gift for his son.

Could official corruption be any more blatant?
