Sen Harry Reid weighs in on cloven bundy, "AMERICA's BIGGEST MOOCHER"..



Reid says Bundy Ranch standoff ‘not over’

"Nevada’s senior senator, who also happens to be the Senate Majority Leader, weighed in late yesterday.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid weighed in on the tensions in his state between rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management, saying, “It’s not over.”

“Well, it’s not over,” Reid told NBC’s Nevada affiliate KRNV on Monday. “We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.”

3. "We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it."

Good to see Reid calling for more arrests and prosecutions of law violating bankers. Maybe
he read Taibbi's new book.

9. Krystal Ball calls out Rancher Cliven Bundy And His Gang Of Thugs – They are not patriots..

"We on the left should not allow conservatives get to away with appropriating patriotism; bastardising it and claiming it as their exclusive domain. We should not accept their loaded rendering of the term. Because real patriotism should be grounded in the recognition that from the highest heights of power down to the homeless vet sleeping on the streets we are all Americans."

MOre..

20. Imagine this: That video is dishonest, slimy RW propaganda designed to smear Harry Reid

It's true that a Chinese company once did propose a solar project--but not, as the video claims, on federal land near Bundy Ranch. The proposal involved purchase of Clark County land at Laughlin--177 miles away from Bundy Ranch, on the other side of Las Vegas.

And you've heard of lying by omission? The video conveniently leaves out the fact that the Chinese company canceled the proposed solar project nearly a year ago (see story below).

Company dumps big Laughlin solar project, says market won’t support it

By Conor Shine
Published Friday, June 14, 2013

A Chinese-backed company is pulling the plug on a multibillion-dollar solar project near Laughlin after it was unable to find customers for the power that would have been generated there, a Clark County spokesman said Friday.

In a letter dated Friday, an executive from ENN Mojave Energy LLC informed the county that the company was terminating its agreement to purchase 9,000 acres near Laughlin, stating that the “market will not support a project of this scale and nature at this time.”

The company, a subsidiary of ENN Group, described as the largest energy company in China, said it was unable to sign the necessary power purchase agreements to sell the energy generated from the solar plant to utilities in Nevada or neighboring states.

When the plan was initially pitched to commissioners, developers said they planned to first build a solar panel factory followed by a massive solar energy plant on land 90 miles south of Las Vegas.

24. I wanted to debunk that BS before that happened

Even infowars backed off the bogus China solar story. Now they're moving the goalposts and citing other green energy projects in the state that Reid supports and jumping through hoops to try to tie them to the Bundy story. New attack, same BS.

One thing's for sure--it's not a good idea to bring that tripe here.

Think Progress:

You are correct.Harry....it ain't over.
This guy will be sorry. But it may take some time, but he broke the law and because of his total arrogance, and hatred, he will be indicted and stand trial. It won't be cheap, and he will lose...pretty easy to see, if you are willing to look.

30. I deeply believe the federal government will get this asshole.

It will take time, but it will be definite, simple, and fair. He will get a fair trial, and be convicted.
____________________________________________________________________________________

I hate assholes like this, as much as anyone. He and his ilk, are the first ones to yell against the protesters against the war or the environment. Their hate is as ugly as one can imagine. He doesn't have to follow the law, and he will use woman to stand in front of marshals to prevent their use of force.. And..I believe too..that Obama was correct in not offering the opportunity for him/his ilk to become martyrs for their cause. He wanted that more than anything,
.... so others would follow and say..see the big bad government did this...like Waco..............................................................
so there would be more like Tim Mc Veigh who would do more, and more...

He reeks like all his ilk. Hate. He will get his, it will take time. He will get his.
