Harry Reid was quoted by BUNKERVILLE, Nev. (CBS Las Vegas/AP) as saying “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land.’ Sounds like a warning to me … he continued saying “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” I believe something will happen and that a faction of Obama’s gestapo squad will be the instigators. As far as Reid, I suggest he read the Constitution because he is in direct violation on many counts.
Reid went on to say that the militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch are “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes” which by proxy is declaring war on American Patriots; how are people staying at the Bundy ranch ‘violent terrorists’, because they are defending a family being railroaded by a government that brokered a deal with Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group, that wants to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert; is this a prelude to the Patriot march May 16 on DC being considered a domestic terrorist event?
Let’s not forget that Reid and his oldest son, Rory, are both involved in an effort by the Chinese energy giant; Reid has been one of the project’s most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on behalf of the project in Nevada, and, his son, a lawyer with a prominent 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. Even with all the pieces falling together Reid dares to call what’s transpiring at the Bundy ranch a domestic violent terrorist act?
Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev stated he wants congressional hearings held about BLM trying to round-up Bundy’s cattle and told KSNV that these militia members are “patriots” and took issue with how BLM handled the situation. “I take more issues with the BLM coming in with a paramilitary army of individuals with snipers. I’m talking to people and groups that are there at the event. Your own government with sniper lenses on you. It made a lot of people very uncomfortable,” Heller told KSNV.
The BLM backed off stating they would resolve the matter “administratively and judicially,” citing safety concerns due to the mounting presence of both armed and unarmed Patriots. The BLM released the 380 cattle they had confiscated and gave up the weeklong roundup and lifted a closure of a vast range half the size of the state Delaware.

Armed Patriots are still guarding Bundy’s melon farm and cattle ranch and have intentions to stay for the duration until they are assured the federal government has backed off. Based on what we know about Reid’s deal with the Chinese firm, and the fact Patriots won the stance with the BLM, I’d say its only a matter of time before the Feds make a move. We can only hope they are not setting the stage for another Waco because this time, there will be blood on both sides.
