I am aware of corruption in government as a reality for a variety of reasons. As a youth and teen and then young adult I heard and saw some unjust actions but was too busy with my own world to really pay much attention. I never liked to see discrimination and mostly it was being eliminated in the 1960’s as I grew to manhood. I remember standing by a young man in Basic Training to help him out, actually I wrote a letter to help him out when I witnessed discrimination against him from the Drill Sergeant. That was mid 1970’s and then the next major event that woke me to others plights of injustice and the need for righteous men in powerful positions was when Evan Mecham was running to clean up Arizona politics. He won a 3 way race to the dismay of some media and criminal elements in the government. They went about in a most organized and effective fashion to vilify and remove a honest and moral man and a good governor from office. They had to at all costs as they were loosing a free ride on Arizona citizens so at 1 time they ran a recall, a criminal trial and an impeachment. They hurried the impeachment thru and broke state laws and open door policies in the process. They lost the court case and never had to finish the recall. I saw then a corrupt situation that shook me up and I followed Evan’s advice to study and learn the US Constitution.
I write the preceding to introduce readers to my contention that we are dealing with a time in history that has been prophesied about and one that America was assisted in it’s birth and organization by God. Men often have gone thru a cycle with the Lord of being given much, falling into pride, ignoring goodness and God, falling out of God’s favor, losing many blessings and suffering, repentance, salvation and receiving much again from the Lord. We are now in the middle of a time of suffering and loss of liberties and many people are losing possessions as they lose work. A repentance of Biblical proportions needs to come about and the longer it is postponed the worse crime, persecution and troubles will come to all. The “Wheat and the Tares” is a parable about these days that we are living and we can not judge too clearly who is who but some events show a marked corruption as this week at the Bundy Ranch in south east Nevada.
Corruption being an influence as it is in these matters the drug monies and votes available are worth more than following the laws for immigration, so no government in my life has effectively controlled our borders. In regards to the land of the Bundy Ranch where over 200 BLM and other federal agents are holding siege to this one mans ranch it appears this property is worth much more to developers than in it’s current undeveloped state. BLM and politicos do not plan on it being empty much longer I think. The one thing I find beautiful about this tragic event where our federal government is making another power grab of huge proportions against property rights, states rights, freedom of speech; is that many are waking up to the corruption and lies coming at us from people we have trusted.
“Neil Kornze Acting Deputy Director (Operations) is familiar with the area of the Cliven Bundy Ranch. He’s a natural resource manager who grew up in Elko, Nev., and served previously as a senior adviser to Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid.” I knew there must be a reasonable explanation why the BLM is so overreaching in this attempt to control the Bundy Ranch. Harry Reid trained this new BLM chief to do things the big government way.
It seems that Harry Reid’s son, a lawyer, is part of a 5 Million dollar solar power deal representing Chinese ENN Energy Holdings Limited. This property is a prime desert location to be offered below market price if the Bundy’s as the last of over 50 ranchers can be eliminated.
“ENN scored big when Clark County commissioners unanimously voted to sell the Chinese company the public land for just $4.5 million, despite the fact that it was appraised at $38.6 million.
Sen. Reid has been one of ENN’s biggest supporters, having recruited the company during a 2011 trip to China. According to Reuters, last month Sen. Reid tried to “pressure Nevada’s largest power company, NV Energy, to sign up as ENN’s first customer.”
“Both Rory Reid and Harry Reid deny having ever discussed the $5 billion Chinese solar panel plant deal:”
“I have never discussed the project with my father or his staff,” said Rory Reid. Kristen Orthman, a spokeswoman for the senator, said he had not discussed the project with his son.”
“This isn’t the first time the Reids have come under fire for alleged cronyism. In 2003, allegations emerged that Nevada industries frequently lobbied Sen. Reid through his well-connected relatives.” http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/04/Harry-Reid-s-Son-Representing-Chinese-Solar-Panel-Plant-In-5-Billion-Nevada-Deal
“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.”
“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.”
What is fascinating is that the desert tortoises have in part been destroyed since the captured ones were becoming diseased. “So, facing the prospect of shutting their doors, the DTCC began releasing healthier turtles into the wild, and euthanizing some of the sick ones.” http://www.infowars.com/before-nevada-cattle-rancher-dispute-blm-was-euthanizing-endangered-desert-tortoise/
From the AP, August 25, 2013:
“Back at the conservation center, a large refrigerator labeled “carcass freezer” hummed in the desert sun as scientists examined the facility’s 1,400 inhabitants to find those hearty enough to release into the wild. Officials expect to euthanize more than half the animals in the coming months in preparation for closure at the end of 2014.”
“It’s the lesser of two evils, but it’s still evil,” Roy Averill-Murray, tortoise recovery coordinator with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service desert, told the AP.”
As Article One, Section 8, Clause 17 states, Congress has the power:
“To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings.”
The Government never bought this land that the Bundy family has used improved and paid fees to County, State and federal agencies for most of the time it was collected since 1870 or so when they homesteaded the area and began farming and ranching there. Bundy tells of a court case that was being lost by BLM and they left court rather than take a loss so BLM lies there. Bundy did stop paying BLM fees when it was obvious they were not managing the land for his benefit but so they could run him out of business. This very week at least to other ranches one in Texas and one in New Mexico are being taken over by these same tactics. When did the federal government ever buy the 85 percent of Nevada they say they own and where on the Bundy Ranch are the “Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings” that are allowed in the Constitution to be owned by federal government?
“Cass Sunstein wrote about this and provided a template, an exact outline, of how to do what they have done in his book “Nudge”. Regulate, mandate, and place laws into effect that control people and will enable agendas to be pushed through. To make laws in order to make what we do illegal, then prosecute when non-compliant. If They can’t do that, then he tells them to make permits or fines so as to make what it is we do so expensive that we can no longer afford to do it. Cass Sunstein is one of the major brains behind progressive movement current. Horrible people. Just like “fast and furious” and their creating of the conditions so they could claim a “gun problem” in the U.S. that supposedly bled over into Mexico. I think that they would have killed every tortoise they could down to the last one in order to keep them endangered so they could do what they are now doing to this guy in Nevada. They secretly create the conditions that allow them to point to the problem they created, as though they care, so that they can then “fix” it. They do this so at the same time they can fulfill whatever secret agenda the whole ordeal is really about… which we won’t know until it’s too late.” from a Facebook post by Blane Holloway where he ties this nicely into the actual tactic used to make Cliven a criminal when he was not before they changed laws and took liberty away without reason or due process. Must be OK as the BLM, Border Patrol, Forestry Service, Parks Service and possibly other official agencies with federal agents armed with regulations and guns, has said so.
