The rancher-federal agent standoff that has been threatening to boil over in Clark County, Nevada, this week has transformed almost overnight from a ludicrous overreach by a government bureaucracy hiding behind an endangered tortoise to the probable result of a multibillion-dollar solar power project traceable to none other than Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid.

As more BLM documents have come to light and connections to previous news reports made, a picture has emerged of efforts by Reid and his son, lawyer Rory Reid, to land a $5 billion Chinese solar power project that will build in Laughlin, Nevada, and in Clark County, where the County Commission sold public land for cents on the dollar to ENN Energy Group.

Rory Reid used to be the chairman of the Clark County Commission, and Sen. Reid’s former adviser is now chief of the Bureau of Land Management, which this week was confiscating rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle over alleged grazing fees on land his family has worked for more than a century. The thin excuse of protecting the desert tortoise, which has clearly survived just fine in the presence of ranching, is easily dismissed because the BLM was killing tortoises by the hundreds just last year due, it said, to lack of funding.
