The Power Of Resistance And Alternative Media

The Power Of Resistance And Alternative Media
SCREENSHOT

Rancher Cliven Bundy, with the support of hundreds of U.S. patriots, seems to have won the latest skirmish with the Federal government.

As we told you Friday, Bundy has been embroiled in a squabble with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management over his cattle and their ability to graze on Nevada land Bundy’s family has used for more than 100 years.

Last week, BLM agents began rounding up Bundy’s cattle with plans to sell them at auction.

On Saturday, confronted by Bundy, his family, friends and members of Oath Keepers, various militia groups and other organizations, BLM backed down and backed out.

The agency released Bundy’s rustled cattle and pulled its resources — which included snipers poised around the protest location — from the area.

News reports indicated some deal had been brokered by Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie.

But the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Sunday that the BLM claims there is no deal:

BLM spokesman Craig Leff told the Associated Press the agency would continue to try to resolve the matter involving rancher Cliven Bundy and the $1 million in owed grazing fees “administratively and judicially.”

“The door isn’t closed. We’ll figure out how to move forward with this,” he said, adding that the BLM did not participate in the negotiation moderated by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie that deescalated tensions on Saturday.

“The BLM and National Park Service did not cut any deal and negotiate anything,” Leff said. “There was no deal we made.”

Bundy supporters are not quite declaring victory yet either.

However, it is clear that a combination of resistance by the American people and news reports revealing Senator Harry Reid’s involvement in a deal with a Chinese energy company put the Federal government on its heels.

Late Friday, alternative media began reporting on Reid’s ties to the Chinese company ENN Energy Group, which wanted the land to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel-building plant.

Reid’s son Rory, a former Clark County commissioner, was also involved with the deal. And former Harry Reid adviser Neil Kornze is BLM chief.

Without the presence of the hundreds of volunteers and reporting by the alternative media, Bundy today would be without his cattle and he and his family would likely have suffered a fate similar to that of the Randy Weaver family or the Branch Davidians.

The big question now is: Was this a victory for Bundy and the American people over an overreaching Federal government, or was the BLM retreat just a strategic de-escalation?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat.

The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev.

I've heard through the grapevine that Reid's son who is a lawyer and represents a Chinese company which wants to build an energy field of wind turbines on the land and that is the real reason for this.

Our Democratic leadership is selling out small business in the interest of corporate greed.

RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid hasn't been very vocal about the cattle battle showdown in recent days, but says "it's not over."

Reid tells News4's Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. "Well, it's not over. We can't have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it's not over," Reid said.

Senator Reid made his comments after the unveiling of four brand new battery-electric buses for the RTC fleet.

Whether Senator Harry Reid initiated the BLM seizure of Cliven Bundy’s ranch or not, can be up for debate.

But since the head of the Bureau of Land Management is Reid’s former senior adviser, there is no doubt that Harry Reid could pick up a phone and put an end to this whole standoff.

So much for Harry Reid stepping up to help Nevadans.

Now there is a theory being bandied about that Senator Reid is actually instigating the expulsion of Mr. Bundy and his cattle because Chinese interests want to build a giant solar power facility on the land where Bundy’s cattle now graze.

These Chinese interests are also suspected of funneling campaign contributions illegally to Harry Reid’s election campaigns.

This wouldn’t be the first time Senator Reid has been associated with illegal campaign contributions. See examples: Jack Abramoff

Dr. Benjamin S. Carson

There are many sinister forces that are vying for power in our American society.

Most of these are associated with politically ambitious individuals who are far more concerned about power and prestige than they are about the people’s welfare.

Uninformed citizens tend to be trusting of some of these forces without doing due diligence in terms of studying their previous performance or their associations with dubious characters.

An uninformed voter, for instance, might ignore the fact that their favorite candidate had a long history of associating with radical elements, because the candidate proclaims his good intentions and promises them justice.

A well-informed voter who favored the same candidate might engage in further investigation on their own, discover that the candidate represented an organization found to be engaged in illegal practices, and change their vote as a result of the discovery.
