It’s a known fact that many types of environmentalists around the country are very concerned about any project anywhere that might contribute to the killing off of wildlife. Some environmentalists have been so concerned for the lives of various frogs, toads, insects, and other creeping wildlife that they have actually worked to get laws passed that prohibited people from working their own land and making a living because to do so might disrupt the existence of the 16-legged whatchamacallit.
That being the case, the environmental types should be concerned about an article that appeared on http://www.washingtontimes.com for April 11, 2014 that was written by Douglas Ernst. The title of the article was Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds killed, ‘entire food chains’ disrupted. The article noted that: “A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like ‘mega traps’ that kill and injure birds. As a result, ‘entire food chains’ are being disrupted.” The study found that over a two year period over 320 dead birds were found at three different solar farms, representing birds from 71 different species, and it went on to list the three primary causes, which I will not get into here because that’s a different story.
The point I want to make here is that Chinese solar farms in the Southern Nevada desert country have been listed in several articles as the real reason that the BLM was attempting to harass rancher Clivan Bundy off his grazing land. And that bastion of Senate honesty, Harry Reid, christened “Dirty Harry” by some is up to his neck in a deal with the Chinese Commnists in which they get to start solar farms, guess where,–on the land where Mr. Bundy has been grazing his cattle.
We were told the desert tortoise was the reason Bundy and his cattle needed to go, because their being there was detrimental to the tortoise habitat. I won’t even dignify that drivel with a comment, other than to say it just ain’t so. Joseph Farah, writing on http://www.wnd.com made the astute comment: “…I don’t think it was about tortoises…This was about something else. It’s always about something else. Maybe—just maybe—it had to do with another Nevadan by the name of Harry Reid. It seems that the Senate majority leader has been doing favors for a Chinese energy giant ENN, which has plans to build massive solar facilities in that area—tortoises or no tortoises. It seems the director of BLM is Reid’s former senior advisor, Neil Kornze. BLM has posted on its website documents stating the agency wanted Bundy’s cattle off the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations. The agency removed it when the standoff became national news…They were getting a mega-deal. On Alpril 3, 2012, Bloomberg reported Chinese billionaire Wang Yusuo, one of China’s richest citizens and the founder of ENN, had teamed up with Harry Reid to win incentives including land 113 miles southeast of Las Vegas that ENN sought to buy for $4.5 million, less than one eighth of the land’s $38.6 million assessed value. But the story gets better. Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, was the chief representative for a Chinese energy firm planning to build a $5 billion solar plant on public land in Laughlin, Nevada.” So, what it amounts to is that if this land is sold to this Chinese outfit, than China controls this land in the US. They will own it. US real estate will be under the control and ownership of a Chinese “company” but who will really own it an independent company or the Chinese government?
World Net Daily had reported, back in January of 2013 that the Obama administration “…had begun to allow China to acquire major ownership interests in oil and natural gas resources across the USA.” In other words, Obama is in the process of allowing Red China to have a major interest in our natural resources. What if their “interest” gets to the point where they control some of our natural resources? Oh, no, Washington would never let that happen! Yeah, right! Remember, this president is a Marxist and the Chinese government is also Marxist, to one extent or another. Oh, they may have allowed a bit of controlled “free enterprise” into China because, like the Soviets, they finally learned that pure Marxism, or communism, is financially untenable.
So much in this game really smells. There are some questions about the people that the BLM had out a Mr. Bundy’s ranch. One report I read on http://beforeitsnews.com for April 11th mentioned “…reports that have come out placing heavy Russian accents on the voices of members of the sniper teams deployed by the FEDS; could these be Russian Spetsnaz agents we’ve been warned about the past few years…With China now buying out what remains of America, as Clivan Bundy is now finding out, how long will it be until the rest of their plans will be put into place?”
An Oathkeeper who was at the Bundy ranch said that: “…the FEDS at Bundy Ranch are actually Russians and speak with heavy accents.” And as far as the BLM finally giving up and leaving, an article on http://www.infowars.com for April 12th said: “The Infowars exclusive yesterday exposing U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s involvement in the Bureau of Land Management’s land grab, which was meant to push out American ranchers such as Clivan Bundy in order to make way for Chinese solar farms, was the #1 news story in the entire world over the past 24 hours thanks to the Drudge Report and others, forcing the BLM to retreat from the standoff.”
I’m just wondering, at this point, given the info I read about solar farms such as Harry Reid and his son are trying to pave the way for in this country, being responsible for killing birds in more than one place in California, if Reid manages, somehow, to finagle a deal to get them into Nevada, how will the environmentalists, who are so concerned about animal life, respond? Surely they will be forced to protest Harry Reid’s plan to allow Chinese solar farms in, won’t they? Let’s wait and see. I could well be wrong, but I’d be willing to bet that the environmentalist movement in this country won’t say “boo” about what Comrade Reid and his son want to do, or how much money they will make off of it, or how many birds it will kill.
Why? Because over the years I have found much of the environmentalist movement to be like a watermelon—green on the outside, but RED on the inside.
What happened at the Bundy Ranch woke some folks up. Let’s hope they will stay awake—and active because, as I said in the last article—this administration is at war with its own people. They want to transform us either into a total Marxist state or pattern us after the socialist countries in Europe. Either way, we lose. Let’s let them know we ain’t goin’ easy!
Before I even finished this article I got an article sent to me from http://bobpowell.blogspot.com that stated that the situation at the Bundy Ranch was a test. The article read: “The entire standoff was…a real world exercise designed to determine what kind of resistance the federal government will face should gun confiscation begin.” I can’t verify the total accuracy of this, but it is food for thought. Eternal vigilance must still be the price of liberty.
