Don't Have A Stroke Harry - On Second Thought.....
Be he Democrat or Republican, Harry Reid is still a senile old asshole. His relentless attacks on Cliven Bundy (who happens to be guilty of the charges filed against him) is a vendetta. By the same token, Bundy has done no more than the "Occupy (anything)" assholes and nary a peep of protest came out of Reid's mouth.
Moreover, Reid has said little about the nearly $17,000 in campaign funds sent to his granddaughter and disclosed their relationship only under pressure from the Federal Election Commission.
Reid reimbursed the money after it was revealed his campaign had cut two separate checks of $5,417 and $11,370 to his granddaughter last October for what Reid described as "holiday gifts" and FEC regulations consider as personal use and not allowed.
As for Reid versus Bundy, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), whose director was Harry Reid’s 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 that his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.
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."
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.
Journalist Marcus Stern with Reuters also reported that Senator Reid was heavily involved in the deal as well. He wrote. "[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. 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."
He continued, "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. Journalist Dana Loesch wrote, "A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when 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."
Loesch continued, " 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. 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."
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.
Update #2: ENN Energy Group describes itself as a "privately-owned clean energy distributor in China." However, as the People’s Republic of China is a single-party state governed by the Communist Party, all large companies in China, one way or the other, are either controlled or are heavily influenced by the Chinese government.
The News As I See It: Happy Earth Day. Earth Day was founded in 1970. It's the one day of the year we tell the Earth we love it. With the other 364 days we try to kill it. After what we have done to it, it is almost disrespectful to have an Earth Day. It's like lice declaring a Head Day.
In honor of Earth Day, Apple announced that it will recycle all of its used products for free. That’s right, they’re recycling Apple products. Apple will recycle its used products for free. That's not to be confused with what Apple normally does — when it recycles its old ideas for $600.
Everyone celebrates Earth Day in his or her own way. In honor of Earth Day, I have filled all four of my pockets with fresh potting soil.
A new survey found that 81 percent of parents admit to stealing Easter candy from their children, while the other 19 percent of parents didn't think it counted as stealing if you bought the candy in the first place.
Congrats to Chelsea Clinton. Last week, she announced that she is expecting her first child. If it’s a girl, it’ll get some of Chelsea’s old hand-me-downs; and if it’s a boy, it’ll get some of Hillary’s old hand-me-downs. Hillary is very excited about being a grandmother. She's home right now knitting a tiny pantsuit.
Some people are claiming they have spotted the Loch Ness monster on Apple Maps. But it turned out it was just a car that drove into the lake because it was using Apple Maps.
Last week celebrated John Muir Day. He is the father of our national parks, the most famous naturalist of all time. Do not confuse a "Naturalist" with a "Naturist." A naturalist is an expert on nature. A naturist is an expert on walking around outside naked. John Muir devoted his life to preserving nature. Without his tireless effort, America would be a dirty, over-developed commercial wasteland. Or as we call it, "Los Angeles."

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I exercise religiously, which means I go running dressed as the Pope. 2) I just saw a donkey crossing the road. The cool thing was he looked both ways before crossing. What a smart ass. 3) The best salesperson ever was the first woman to pluck her eyebrows, draw them back on, then convince a second woman to do it. 4) Women are like campfires. Beautiful, hot, smell great, warm your heart and neither of them like it if you pee on them.....mostly. 5) Based on how much my bones and joints pop when I work out, I'm pretty sure I'm 80 percent Rice Krispies.....and that's five !

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Three little boys were visiting their grandparents. The oldest came out and asked his grandpa, "Can you make a sound like a frog, Grandpa?" Grandpa (being in a kind of ill mood) responds, "No, I don't really want to make the sound of a frog now."
So, the second little boy comes out and asks his grandfather, "Will you please make a sound like a frog?" Grandpa again says, "No, not now. I don't really want to do that. I'm in a grumpy mood. Maybe later."
Then the third little boy comes out and says, "Grandpa, oh please... Please, please will you make a sound like a frog?" Grandpa asked, "Why do all of you boys want me to make a sound like a frog?" The little boy replied with a hopeful face, "Well, Mom said that when you croak we get to go to Disney World!"
A young boy goes to the zoo with his father. As they are passing the elephant exhibit the youngster looks over at the elephant. After a few seconds he turns to his Dad and asks "Dad, what's that hanging down from the elephant?" His father replies "That's his trunk son." The boy says, "No, no, Dad at the back." His father replies, "Oh, that's his tail."
The boy says, "No, Dad, between his legs." The father looks over and replies "That's his penis, son." The young lad thinks about the answer for a minute, and then says to his father "Last week Mommy told me that was nothing." His father replies, "Well, son, you have to remember that your mother is a very spoiled woman."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pal Wally for his contribution to today's stories.
Calvin Rickson, an engineer from Texas A and M University, has designed a bra that keeps women's breasts from jiggling, bouncing up and down and stops nipples from pushing through the fabric when cold weather sets in.
After a news conference announcing the invention, a large group of Texans took Mr. Rickson outside and kicked the shit out of him.
For his birthday, little Joseph asked for a 10 speed bicycle. His father said, "Son, we'd give you one, but the mortgage on this house is $280,000 and your mother just lost her job. There's no way we can afford it."
The next day the father saw little Joseph heading out the front door with a suitcase. So he asked, "Son, where are you going?" Little Joseph said, "I was walking past your room last night and heard you telling mom you were pulling out."
Joseph continued, "Then I heard her tell you to wait because she was coming too. I'll be damned if I'm staying here by myself with a $280,000 mortgage and no f*cking bike."
Britney is stranded on an island. Britney is starving. Britney forms tool out of rocks and sticks. Britney sees a fish. Britney Spears.....
That's it for today, my little tumbleweeds. Remember, irony is the opposite of wrinkly. Thank you.. thank you very much. I'll be here all week. For now, I'm going to head over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
More on Friday.
