Amid rumors of militias moving in, no-fly zones, and legal weapons being confiscated from law-abiding citizens, KLAS Las Vegas is reporting that Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie has brokered a deal between rancher Clive Bundy and his supporters and the Bureau of Land Management.

“Sources tell the I-Team that Sheriff Gillespie has negotiated a potential agreement in which the BLM would halt its roundup of Bundy’s cattle and withdraw its employees from the Gold Butte area.

The BLM wants to proceed with the sale of the cattle already gathered during the roundup but is reportedly willing to share the revenue from the sale with Bundy.”

Fox News is reporting that the BLM is pulling out over concerns about safety.

Not everyone agrees that they are pulling out for that reason. BizPac Review reports:

“Amid the growing standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government, reports are growing that Senate Majority Harry Reid’s little-known ties to a Chinese solar energy giant could be playing a major role in the confrontation.”

Is it possible that this whole standoff and bullying of ranchers is about politicians getting rich off their connections and their power to determine how public lands are used? Let’s keep watching, folks.

    As far as I’m concerned, if it involves NEVADA, Dingy Harry Reid is in it up to his eyebrows. I find it difficult, if not inpossible, to have any respect for the citizens of Nevada who keep sending this little weasel to the District of Corruption.

    “Is it possible”? Of course. It is also possible that, as the Las Vegas Journal reported two weeks ago, that the BLM sold the fracking/oil rights to six oil companies to property in the Gold Butte area for millions to become “the first fracking operation in Nevada”. Who wants cattle around the poisoned water from these operations? It ain’t about a turtle, folks; nor about a refusal to pay a lease. It’s about the BLM running cattle ranchers off of the land and out of business, to further their Agenda 21 plans of pushing people into the cities while declaring other areas as ‘little to no human occupation’, so that they can do whatever they want out in the open to America’s wilderness.

    Yes, Reid is at the pit of all this –
    Hot button issue. More to come I’m sure.

      What I would like to know is how in the heck did Harry Reid get re-elected in your state. Probably the same way Obama did….the dead do vote.

    I guess you could call it brokering a deal .Most believe he was trying to save his bum along with Harry Reid and all the slugs he has bought off in Nevada. I now hope they drag these slugs out of their dark hiding places, check their finances and I am guessing some will be in a Federal prison for at leat a portion of their lives. It could never be long enough.

    How can they illegally take 300 heads of this ranchers cattle? Hang’em high like they did in the old West and start with Reid!
