Harry Reid: Benghazi is a Koch brothers plot(BURP)
The Washington Examiner ^ | MAY 2, 2014 | CHARLES HOSKINSON

Posted on 05/03/2014 5:20:03 PM PDT by dontreadthis

House Speaker John Boehner can put his plans for a select committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi on hold. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has gotten to the bottom of the scandal:

It's the Koch brothers' fault.

Yes, the Nevada Democrat's obsession with billionaires Charles and David Koch extends to blaming them for the Republican-controlled House's desire to get to the bottom of why the Obama administration blamed a terrorist attack on an obscure anti-Islam video (to protect President Obama politically, according to emails newly obtained by Judicial Watch in a lawsuit).

Here's Reid's statement on Boehner's announcement Friday:

Republicans are showing yet again that they have nothing to offer the middle class. Republicans care more about defending billionaires like the Koch brothers and trying to rekindle debunked right-wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wage or ensuring women receive equal pay for equal work.

Those crafty Koch brothers — is there anything they can't do?

Harry does remind me of the Crypt Keeper...
I really expect to see him melt down on the
Senate floor, once the truth starts coming out.

I am gonna catch flack for this, but it the old bulls in the House and Senate that give us the most grief. Dingell is retiring, Conyers may be out on a technicality however we need what the Airline Industry has, to get rid of McCain and so many more. And that is 65 yr mandatory retirement and Air Transport Rating Physicals, because I am beginning to think Dingy Harry is traveling with half a sea bag....

SENATOR REID says that those evil Koch brothers are at fault, and he should know, because we have the same Psychiatrist. He agrees with me on strawberries too.

I'm just so relieved that poor Harry got a break from all the nasty
agita over his grand-daughter receiving laundered campaign funds.

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 (w/ no history of grant-giving),
<><> 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?

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

email: enforcement @SEC.gov

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

The SEC and IRS should examine every document filed by (a) The tax-exempt Clinton Global Initiative, (b) the tax- exempt Caesar's Foundation and (c) The tax-exempt Nevada Energy Foundation, (d) Reid granddaughter's theatre group.

Every official tax-exempt document needs to be scrutinized in conjunction w/ possible connections to govt fraud, corruption, money laundering and tax evasion. Perjury and forgery, need to be considered.

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........

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

L/E should to get ahold of Rory and Harry Reid's: (1) check copies, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, contracts, loan agreements, and, (8) any other books or records.

L/E should also explore (a) monies Reid paid to brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.

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

BTW, here's Harry w/ his grand-daughter....the one who got $31,000 in laundered campaign funds for her "jewelry company" and agrant from the Clinton Foundation.

Reid and granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid.

In the 1960s there was a movie, “Fantastic Voyage”. This rally happened... to Harry Reid... only the scientists are still inside his head slowly destroying the remaining brain cells functioning properly.

Harry “Pinky” Reid was on the Senate floor again in need of a diaper change. I suggest he stop drinking those Bloody Marys which are causing his irritated bladder and his intoxication.

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

REUTERS EXCERPT/EDITED BY POSTER: In 2003, Harry Reid made a show of publicly banning relatives from lobbying him or his staff after newspaper reports showed that Nevada industries and institutions routinely turned to Reid's sons or son- in-law, lawyers at prominent area law firms, for representation.

Now, Harry Reid and his oldest son, Rory, are both involved in Chinese Energy giant's ENN Energy Group, to build a $5 billion solar farm and solar panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert.

Reid himself helped recruit the solar company during a 2011 Senate junket to China.ENN is headed by Chinese energy tycoon Wang Yusuo, who made a fortune estimated by Forbes at $2.2 billion distributing natural gas in China.

Wang escorted Harry Reid and a delegation of nine other U.S. senators on a tour of the company's clean energy operations in Langfang, and Reid featured Wang as a speaker at his 4th annual National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas last year.

Rory, a lawyer with a prominent politically-connected 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.

The Langfang, China-based ENN Energy Group hopes to build what would be the largest solar energy complex in America. The site----chosen with Rory Reid's guidance----is in tiny Laughlin, Nevada, a gambling town of 7,300 along the Colorado River, 90 miles south of Las Vegas.

NOTE Richard Bryan, the head of Rory's law firm, was a former colleague of Harry Reid in the US Senate.

Every time Reid opens his yap from now on all I can hear in a Wizard of Oz voice is “pay no attention to the money man behind the curtain.”

Whether harry has called on the MSM mics to make his latest announcement, or whether he’s on the Senate floor, his talking points are laughingly predictable.

A one-trick phony with a fill-in-the-blanks script is all he is.

What a funny picture of the old, dingy one. He looks like a person who has never done a lick of manual labor in his life. He’s lifting that shovel and saying to himself, “what the hell is this thing I’m carrying?”

If Harry could learn to keep his mouth closed, he could probably go ahead and use the Senate as his nursing home for the next 10-15 years. But that dementia is making it obvious he is not all there, and soon even the Democrats will want him out.
