High-level Democrats positioned to profit from ‘green’ projects

James Simpson is an investigative journalist, businessman and former economist and budget analyst for the White House Office of Management and Budget. Best-known for his exposé on the Cloward Piven Strategy of Manufactured Crisis, Simpson’s work provided background for Glenn Beck’s groundbreaking TV series on the subject. He is a frequent guest on radio talk shows and is featured in Curtis Bowers’ award winning documentary “Agenda: Grinding America Down.”

After a weeklong confrontation between protesters and armed agents of the Bureau of Land Management, events at the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nev., came to an abrupt end Saturday when the BLM suddenly threw in the towel and left.

Speaking to a local TV news program Monday,  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada declared: “This isn’t over.” And he is certainly correct. The showdown between BLM and Cliven Bundy – the last rancher in Clark County, Nev. – was but the latest battle in a long-running conflict.

Supposedly at issue was the desert tortoise, a reptile on the endangered species list that purportedly could not coexist on the land with Bundy’s cattle. But why, many asked, would the turtle suddenly be threatened by animals it had cohabited with for the 100-plus years the Bundy ranch has been in operation?

A BLM document unearthed last week discusses mitigation strategies for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone, just southwest of the Bundy ranch. The “mitigation strategy” proposed to use the grazing lands near the Bundy ranch as a kind of sanctuary for the desert tortoise, because the entire region is slated for a large number of solar, wind and geothermal energy generation facilities.

The solar projects will obliterate most of the turtle’s natural habitat.

Bloggers quickly made a connection between the effort to remove Bundy’s cattle and a solar energy project in Southern Nevada financed by the communist Chinese energy firm ENN. It was to be the largest solar farm in the U.S.

Reid had lobbied heavily for the company’s business, even traveling to China. Reid’s son, Rory Reid, formerly a Clark County commissioner, became a lobbyist for ENN, and the Senate majority leader’s former senior adviser, Neil Kornze, now leads the BLM.

But the solar energy complex financed by the communist Chinese was not at the heart of the Bundy Ranch fiasco after all. The project died last year.

Tyranney Alert

However, the BLM’s library of renewable energy projects revealed it was only one of more than 50 solar, wind and geothermal projects planned for Nevada, California, Arizona and other Western states. Reid was focused on at least one, and maybe more, of the projects, much closer to the Bundy ranch.

He was at the work site on March 21 to help break ground on the Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project. A close inspection of the project reveals why there is so much interest in the area and why the BLM, presumably at Reid’s urging through his former aide, Kornze, is so intent on getting Bundy off the land.

The leaseholder for the project is K Road Power, LLC, a New York City-based energy company. An examination of its website finds the business development manager to be none other than Jonathan Magaziner.

Magaziner was formerly an associate at the Clinton Climate Initiative of the William J. Clinton Foundation. He is also the son of Ira Magaziner, former senior policy adviser for President Bill Clinton. The elder Magaziner now works for the Clinton Foundation on health and environment issues. There are likely other connections to Democratic insiders.

Tyranney Alert

But that is not all. A company called First Solar is listed on a BLM renewable energy project map of southern Nevada, one of 11 sited in Clark County. Additionally, the map shows six wind projects in Clark County and also lists the K Road Moapa project under “transmission projects.” In other words, there is a lot more going on than media have reported.

First Solar investors comprise a who’s who of Democratic insiders, including major Obama campaign bundlers, billionaire investor Paul Tudor Jones, Al Gore, Ted Turner and Goldman Sachs. First Solar’s CEO is Michael Ahearn, former fundraiser for both Obama and Harry Reid.

First Solar has at least three other solar projects in California. So it becomes apparent why the BLM, Reid and many other interested parties have such an intense interest in the desert tortoise.

Tyranney Alert

The lucrative business opportunities explain both why Cliven Bundy has been facing such intense intimidation and why all the other ranchers have been chased out. Bundy represents a financial threat not merely to Reid, but a whole gamut of Democrats tied to Obama, Clinton and Gore.

This is what has been discovered by examining only a few of the 50-plus projects. Doubtless there are similar stories behind some, if not all, of the others.

Tyranney Alert

If Democrat-linked entrepreneurs plan to turn the West into a massive arena for green projects, the implications are disturbing. The projects will eventually go as all others have gone before: failing as the unsustainable costs, maintenance problems and unseen environmental catastrophes they create become intolerable. The true goal of “green” energy, say cynics, is to make these people wealthier, not to save the environment.

Whether that turns out to be the case or not, the Bundy story needs far greater and deeper media scrutiny.

AN INCONVENIENT RANCHER: BLM Docs Show Feds’ Solar Plan Targets Bundy for Elimination


http://clashdaily.com/2014/04/inconvenient-rancher-blm-docs-show-feds-solar-plan-targets-bundy-elimination/#J2LpIdExZOpiu9Mg.99

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.

Tyranney Alert

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

Tyranney Alert

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:

In case the BLM website continues to deprive you of access to that crucial report at the link, here are screenshots of key portions of it:

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

Flashback: Sen. Reid Breaks Ground for Nevada Solar Farm Near Bundy Ranch


http://www.infowars.com/flashback-sen-reid-breaks-ground-for-nevada-solar-farm-near-bundy-ranch/

The senator’s plan for solar farms in Nevada wasn’t just limited to the shelved project near Laughlin

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who was exposed last Friday as the mastermind behind the Bureau of Land Management’s persecution of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, can be seen in this March 2014 photo breaking ground for a new solar farm near the Bundy Ranch, emphasizing that the senator’s plan for solar projects in Nevada wasn’t just limited to the shelved solar farm near Laughlin.

Credit: First Solar Media press release via Business News

Signaling the first day of construction of the Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project, which is about 35 miles from the Bundy homestead in Bunkerville, Nevada, Sen. Reid joined representatives from the Moapa Band of Paiutes, executives from First Solar, Inc. and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power for the groundbreaking ceremony on March 21.

“First Solar is thrilled to celebrate this important milestone with Sen. Reid and distinguished guests, and honored to work with the Moapa Band of Paiutes on this landmark project,” Jim Hughes, the CEO of First Solar, said at the time.

The development of solar farms just like this one is exactly why Sen. Reid was using the BLM, whose director is Reid’s former senior advisor, to push Bundy out of the Gold Butte area his family has worked for over 140 years.

As we revealed last Friday in an article that became the #1 news story in the world for 24 hours, the BLM specifically stated that it wanted Bundy and his cattle out of the area as part of the agency’s regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone.”

The BLM attempted a cover-up by deleting documents exposing the plan from its web site, but fortunately contributors at the Free Republic were able to save them for posterity.

Others have attempted to whitewash the situation by suggesting that the solar farm development was only limited to the shelved 2012 deal between Sen. Reid and Chinese-owned ENN Energy Group in Laughlin, Nev., but by reading the BLM’s own documents it is quite obvious that this is not the case.

“The BLM’s current action builds on the Western Solar Energy Plan, a two-year planning effort conducted on behalf of the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Energy to expand domestic energy production and spur development of solar energy on public lands in six western states,” the BLM announced in a March 14 press release. “The Western Solar Energy Plan provides a blueprint for utility-scale solar energy permitting in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah by establishing Solar Energy Zones with access to existing or planned transmission, incentives for development within those Solar Energy Zones, and a process through which to consider additional Solar Energy Zones and solar projects.”

“The Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone is the first of several pilot plans to be developed by the BLM,” the press release added.

In summary, the BLM, acting under Sen. Reid’s corrupt interests, wants Cliven Bundy out of the 600,000 acre Gold Butte area so the agency can use the land for future solar projects and de facto buffer zones surrounding the solar farms.

This is crony capitalism at its finest and Bundy’s supporters, who numbered in the thousands, knew it.

SHOCKER: Someone at MSNBC Actually Called Harry Reid Out for his Lies!


http://www.tpnn.com/2014/04/04/someone-at-msnbc-actually-called-harry-reid-out-for-his-lies/

Harry-Reid-Looking-Down
Harry Reid has been on a infantile, disingenuous tirade against the libertarian leaning Koch Brothers Despite that fact that he is cozy with the Steyer Brothers and constantly looking the other way in silence at the infiltration into the American political system of global socialist George Soros, Dirty Harry remains silent on those issues. Of course, whoever lines his pockets or keeps him and his party in power is off limits from criticism.

Instead, he attacks private American citizens who simply fight for freedom, free markets, and the Constitution upon which this country was built as ‘un-American’ with lies, distortions, and baseless accusations. Shockingly, at least one person at MSNBC, Obama’s LEAN FORWARD propaganda network, has called Reid out for his ridiculous attacks. (watch video below)

On The Morning Joe on Friday, Joe Scarborough lambasted Reid for not only demeaning the office that he holds, but also doing so with utter stupidity. Newsmax reports on this surprising criticism of a Democrat leader from a MSNBC host.

“It’s the stupidest strategy I’ve ever heard,” Scarborough said. “If somebody think that a voter in Raleigh, North Carolina, gives a damn about who is financing 30-second ads, they are too stupid to be in politics.

“You have to be really stupid to think that this is going to work.”

The outspoken host said that Reid was demeaning his position in the government with his “shocking” use of “McCarthyite terms” to describe the Koch brothers.

McCarthyism is a term coined following the anti-communist efforts of Republican Sen. Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s. It has since come to describe an attack on a person’s loyalty without evidence to support the accusation.

Senate Democrats Go Nuclear and Blow Up Tradition


http://eaglerising.com/3089/senate-democrats-go-nuclear-blow-tradition/#eqlUFZi24hyhAhwc.99

By / 22 November  2013

They did it. Senate Democrats invoked  the nuclear option and blew up over 220 years of legislative history in the  United States. The Democrats changed the rules of the Senate to allow  Presidential appointments to executive and judicial positions with a simple  majority vote. Instead of the original 60 vote threshold, now the Senate will  only need 51 votes to approve these appointments. It may not seem like a major  change – but it is – Senator John McCain (R-AZ) may have said it best, “This  changes everything, this changes everything.”  

McConnell

Funny enough, the same Democrats that today “broke the rules, to change the  rules,” once fought tooth and nail to stop Republicans from doing the very same.  In 2005 the Republicans threatened the nuclear option because of Democrats  filibustering President George W. Bush’s judicial appointments. The key word  there is threatened. In the end, a bipartisan group of Senators brokered an  agreement and the nuclear option was left untouched.

Do you remember some of the things the Democrats said during that nuclear  option debate? How about just what Senate  Majority Leader Harry Reid said? (Check out this great  video of Reid on the nuclear option from 2005)

“My Republican colleagues claim that nominees are entitled to an up-down  vote. That claim ignores history, including recent history.”

“Some in this chamber want to throw out 214 years of Senate history in the  quest for absolute power … They think they’re wiser than our founding fathers. I  doubt that that’s true.”

The nuclear option, “simply put, would be the end of the United States  Senate.”

What is Reid saying now?

“These nominees deserve at least an up-or-down vote. But Republican  filibusters deny them a fair vote and deny the president his team.”

To remain relevant and effective as an institution, the Senate must evolve  to meet the challenges of a modern era.”

“It’s time to change the Senate before this institution becomes  obsolete.”

How about what another Senate expert thinks about the nuclear option? What do  you think, Vice President Biden? (Circa 2005)

Sen Biden

“I pray God, when the Democrats take back control, we don’t make the  kind of naked power grab you are doing.” – then Senator Joe  Biden

The Senate Democrats betrayed the American people yet again when they voted  for the nuclear option. Our system is designed to give the minority more power  than its numbers would ordinarily give it. Why? Because our founding fathers  knew the corrupting influence of power. They knew that the majority could not be  trusted with its “full share” of power – they would persecute and ignore the  minority’s beliefs and desires.

HReidMiddleSenate Democrats chose to value themselves more  than they values our nation, and they should be punished for that. It’s my  sincerest hope that this, along with the many other failings, shortcomings and  scandals that the Democrats have been a part of, be seared into the brains of  voters for years to come.

Again, I think John McCain’s reaction to the day’s events are just about  perfect.

“This changes everything, this changes everything… (This) puts on a chill  on the entire United States Senate.”

“I have reached to them. I spent an hour in Harry Reid’s office. Come on.  I reached out until my arms ache… They are governed by these hard over, newer  members of Democratic senators who have never been a minority, who are primarily  driving this issue and they succeeded and  they will pay a very, very heavy price for it.

I hope so Senator McCain, I sincerely do.

Obama
