The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.
The first segment of the document pulled by the feds from BLM.gov.

Deleted from BLM.gov but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle Trespass Impacts” directly states that Bundy’s cattle “impacts” solar development, more specifically the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”
“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the document states.

Another BLM report entitled Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone (BLM Technical Note 444) reveals that Bundy’s land in question is within the “Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone and surrounding area” which is part of a broad U.S. Department of Energy program for “Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States” on land “managed” by BLM.
“In 2012, the BLM and the U.S. Department of Energy published the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States,” the report reads. “The Final Solar Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement assessed the impact of utility-scale solar energy development on public lands in the six southwestern states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.”

“The Approved Resource Management Plan Amendments/Record of Decision (ROD) for Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States implemented a comprehensive solar energy program for public lands in those states and incorporated land use allocations and programmatic and SEZ-specific design features into land use plans in the six-state study area.”
Back in 2012, the New American reported that 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.
And journalist Marcus Stern with Reuters also reported that Sen. Reid was heavily involved in the deal as well.
“[Reid] and his oldest son, Rory, are both involved in an effort by a Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group, to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert,” he wrote. “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.”
“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.”
Although these reports are in plain view, the mainstream media has so far ignored this link.
The BLM’s official reason for encircling the Bundy family with sniper teams and helicopters was to protect the endangered desert tortoise, which the agency has previously been killing in mass due to “budget constraints.”
“A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher; they want his land,” journalist Dana Loesch wrote. “The tortoise wasn’t of concern when [U.S. Senator] Harry Reid worked with BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore.”
“Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests,” she added. “BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area.”
“If only Cliven Bundy were a big Reid donor.”
Update: The Drudge Report, the #1 news aggregate site in the world, has now picked up this story. Unfortunately for the BLM, the documents they wanted to delete are now exposed for the world to see.

If this is public land, what gives them the right to take it over and build a solar power plant? Who/what give Harry Reid the right? Sounds like Mr. Reid should go to jail. He couldn't even be honest about the true intention for that land.

I'll tell you what these guys Harry Reid and all his cronies need is a good swift kick in the ass! They have their hands in each other's pockets and they all have their "special interests" which by the way only benefits them. The people need to get rid of all these characters from high positions and put them all on the streets with a tin cup and a pack of pencils. Enough of these "leaders" (losers) who won't look after the good of all men and who want to keep the population broke and poor while they drink the finest champagne out of golden goblets with public funds!

Look up Agenda 21, that’s what this whole thing is about. Why do you think Hilary spent so much time overseas during her tenure? The Unites States of America is a sovereign country is it not? What right does the UN have dictating to United States Citizens how we use our land? What right does the Federal gov. have using UN militants in our country to enforce Agenda 21????? Everyone needs to contact their leadership, Congressman, Senators, governors and demand that Mr. Reid be removed from office and prosecuted for his crimes against the American people. Rather than representing and protecting the people who elected him to office for TWO terms, he takes advantage of his office to pave the way for excess monetary gain for himself and his family then turns around and tramples on his fellow citizens and sic’s the militant BLM on a poor rancher trying to muck out mediocre living in the middle of a desert. So much for his oath for upholding his office

go to this link, explains how to remove a Senator from office
Language reads in one portion: “:Under Article 1, Section 5, clause 2, of the Constitution, a Member of Congress may be removed from office before the normal expiration of his or her constitutional term by an “expulsion” from the Senate (f a Senator) or from the House of Representatives (if a Representative) upon a formal vote on a resolution agreed to by two-thirds of the Members of that body present and voting. Further goes on to explain: expulsion actions in both the House and Senate have generally concerned cases of perceived disloyalty to the United States, or the conviction of a criminal statutory offense which involved abuse of one’s official position. “ It is obvious that Mr. Reid fits into this category. A traitor giving China a 5 billion dollar contact to Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group rather than an American company for his own personal gain and that of his sons. A thief using the BLM for his agenda steeling the land use, Bundy cattle and ripping out water lines to facilitate NO WATER for any cattle OR wild animals, a thug using the BLM to terrorize American citizens, maim and kill cattle with new born calves and dumping them into mass graves.
