Sen. Harry Reid strikes gold with home sale
The Washington Times ^ | June 9, 2014 | By S.A. Miller

Posted on 06/09/2014 3:30:21 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has sold his home in Searchlight, Nevada, to a mining company for $1.7 million and is moving to Las Vegas, his office announced Monday.

Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, sold his house with 110 acres of land to Nevada Milling and Mining, which plans to develop a gold mine in Searchlight.

The $1.7 million deal closed Friday, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

Mr. Reid grew up poor in the dusty mining town of Searchlight, about 60 miles south of Las Vegas, but as a lawmaker he managed to accumulate a personal fortune estimated at $5 million before the windfall from selling his homestead.

He said he sold out to the mining company because he and his wife, Landra Reid, wanted to move to Las Vegas to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

Not exactly to be a gold mine going forward, but it’s gotta be the first payment for a goldmine in which the gold has already been realized.

The Reid/Clinton/Chinese connection

The Clintons bagged millions in kickbacks from the Red Chinese for Loral Space technology, paid for by American tax payers---and there's the 350M the Chinese government gave their "foundation" for "favors" Mr. Clinton performed for the Chinese (technology transfer), PLUS separate donations to Hillary---and you have quite a pile of illicit money.

WAIT A SEC There's also a Harry Reid connection to the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative" foundation.

PUT ON YOUR TINFOIL HATS TO CONNECT THE DOTS:

(1) Harry Reid's son Rory is in business w/ the Chi/Coms on a multi-billion dollar solar energy project; Cliven Bundy and his land are standing in the way.

(2) Reports say Bill Clinton recently went to China to panhandle for his tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative" foundation.

(3) The "Clinton Global Initiative" (NOT KNOWN for giving out grants)---gave Harry Reid's granddaughter a grant for a Brooklyn, NY theatre she runs (what is a Brooklyn theatre's connection to "global initiatives?")

(4) A Nevada energy company also gave Reid's granddaughter's theatre group a grant.

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

"Money laundering" comes to mind. Could the Chinese be financing the Reid's solar project through donations to the Clinton Foundations....which is then laundered to Reid's granddaughter?

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

REFERENCE----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....and is now owned by a Warren Buffet unit.

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

How much has he got stashed in the Cayman Islands or other offshore bank accounts? $5 Million is chump change for the America killers.

I’m a little tired of multimillionaire politicians claiming how “poor” they were - like it’s a badge of honor. Reid and Clinton today. Yesterday, I saw a TV commercial for Mark Warner - “I lived in my car, then ... Nextel-RICH!” They want us to believe they worked harder?? They perfected the art of the scam, that’s all. It’s insulting.

110 acres in my neck of the woods is worth a HELL of a lot more than $1.7 million.

It goes for about $100,000 per acre (two recent sales this year).

I’m not a braggart, just saying with his house + 110 acres and it’s only $1.7 Million?

We have listed a 25 acre home and ‘ranch’ for $7.5 million.

PM me if you’re interested (Bozeman, MT).

$1.7 million dollars is a big chunk of money, I’m just trying to put it into some sort of perspective...

Harry is evil through and through. So are his spawns.

Now homeless, Harry will collect tens of thousands from the administration. He’ll deliver the required votes and all will be well.
Next question?

The selling price sounds fishy——since he sold it to a gold-mining company that stands to make hundreds of millions.

Harry’s got a cut in there somewhere-—he just won’t come clean about it.......wants us to think he’s still “dirt poor.”

**********************************************************************

I wonder if the Reid property is even necessary to the gold mining operation. Where is it located relative to existing and planned mining operations? Did Reid even own the mineral rights to the property? Many folks in that part of the country do not own the mineral rights but instead just the property itself w/o rights to any minerals beneath.

My suspicious mind leads me to suspect yet another Reid payoff.

Kick back obvious it is. < /yoda >

CNBC's excellent series "American Greed" needs to get on this. They just aired the Kwame Kilpatrick story---Democrat Mayor of Detroit as the city folded.

$73 million was extorted from city contractors. He's in jail for 28 years---his father went to jail---and his mother a nine-term Congressman went to jail earlier.

Am/Greed pulled no punches---they aired video of the Democrat convention---starring Kwame as keynote speaker talking about family values....and other Democrat nonsense----as he was stealing the city blind.

Watch Casino, the sleazy county commissioner who Ace Rothstein supplied with Hookers and then screwed Ace over in the gaming license case is based on Harry Reid.

Another Reid payoff——and another instance where he used his position, his office, our laws and our tax dollars to accomodate this company?

Sounds like Hillary’s cattle futures trading windfall. Backdoor payoff to a politician.
