A Utah businessman is rocking both state and national politics after claiming Utah Attorney General John Swallow helped him broker a deal with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to make a federal investigation into his company quietly disappear, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Jeremy Johnson was allegedly told that the price would be $600,000, and claims to have made an initial payment of $250,000 when he was slapped with a federal lawsuit. Now he says he wants his money back.
In a surreal turn of events, Harry Reid has created an invitation for "National Clean Energy Summit" in Las Vegas Nevada for September 4 AND invited none other than Alex Jones as one of the attendees for the event!
He sent out this invitation on April 14 morning - well after Bundy conflict cooled down! Isn't Alex Jones among the list of Domestic Terrorists category according to Dirty Harry? That's what he said in that event in Las Vegas, couple of days after this invitation he created.
This is generally what happens when you walk over Americans' freedom...
Despite reported efforts to silence conservative viewpoints, social media sites like Facebook remain the most accessible forum through which the public can express its views. Developments regarding the Bundy Ranch situation, for instance, have been shared extensively by users despite the fact that many mainstream media sources have largely ignored the story.
Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, who some reports suggest has a financial interest in the Bureau of Land Management’s action against the Bundys, recently indicated that the situation is “not over,” leading many to prepare for a federal raid on the historic ranch. In response to the announcement, patriots on Facebook proved they are not only capable of using the site to spread important news; they also provide plenty of pointed criticism of those they feel deserve it.
Update: I finally broke down and logged into Facebook - Holy cow, it's far worse that this article describes (LOL) https://www.facebook.com/SenatorReid
After digging around the BLM Nevada website [before it went down!], I stumbled across a document titled:
Here are few sections from that document and a list of the people who prepared it. Below, you can see that their contact info was scrubbed from BLM's website.
...So God Made Cliven Bundy.
WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.
In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews.

The Department of the Interior is headed by the Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewel.
This scandal appears to be connected to one of President Obama's cabinet members!
My apologizes for not vetting this. Couple of reasons why I didn't but I sure learned my lesson. When you get sent something from someone you think is a reliable source, still double check it.
Sorry to Mods and all DP'ers.
Very well written article. Makes some powerful connections, particularly about BLM mitigation plans.
"On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are ..."
Statement from Director of the BLM Neil Kornze "Nevada Belongs to All Americans, Bundy Owes Americans $1 Million, No More Raids"Submitted by RobHino on Tue, 04/15/2014 - 16:35
Cattle Gather Operation Concluded
***All closure areas are now accessible and open with the exception of the Incident Command Post outside of Mesquite.*** (04/15/14)
Statement from Director of the Bureau of Land Management Neil Kornze on the Cattle Gather in Nevada (04/12/14)
Today we announced the decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our grave concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.
Rory Reid appeared on KSNV's What's Your Point with host Jeff Gillan and told Gillan that Bundy should be prosecuted:
"He is not victim and he’s not a hero. He’s been using that he doesn’t own for over 20 years and he didn’t pay. He broke the law. There are hundreds of ranchers throughout Nevada that conduct their profession honorably. There’s thousands of them throughout the country and when they have a dispute with the BLM they try to work it out.
I would assume they would. What do you think?
