Okay, I’ve got to lighten up this morning. My a$$ is really chapped that liberals keep coming to old Cry and Howl seeking topics they believe can be “debunked” through mind-less drivel which has no bearing on what’s written here. So, I’m just going to take a little time from the chaos and just kind of … well … “groove” …
Hoping all my friends have a safe and blessed Easter weekend.
The mid-term elections are approaching and it appears the Democrat party will once again get spanked pretty hard. All the boasting about the success of Obamacare rings hollow on most Americans, especially considering that 60% of the people believe Obama lies on very important issues. I mean this guy’s lying is probably what he’ll be known best for … besides Benghazi, IRS scandal, the phony Bin Laden murder, the murders of the Navy SEALs, the murder of American citizens via drone strikes, his endless golf outings and vacations, the Rap concerts in the White House, his race baiting, his bowing to those who hate America, his love for perversion and his disdain for America.
Personally I don’t see one reason to believe a word that Barack Obama says. For sure the various world leaders know he’s a joke. Oh well, at least America made history and elected a black man and a gay one at that, as president, kind of like a ‘two-fer’ on the making history thing.
So next up we’ll get to elect another even more corrupt individual, if you can imagine that. Hillary Clinton is being touted by the major media and Democrats as the front runner by a wide margin for the presidential election in 2016. Now this person has more scandal baggage than anyone in modern times, which defines her entire life. Heck, even as First Lady she was under criminal investigation. Geez, what a gal! But she’s one of these power freaks who never goes away. The media is doing it’s best to drag her a$$ over the finish line for the presidency. One problem is that no one can think of a single accomplishment she’s achieved, even as Secretary of State. Well, she did rack up more frequent-flyer miles than any other Secretary of State. Being in charge of the State Department she was also directly responsible for the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans at Benghazi … she did say that she was responsible, but we’re still waiting for Barack to hold someone accountable. Well Hillary’s been naughty again because now there’s another little problem that’s nipping at the heels of the former Secretary of State …

Bombshell Report Links Hillary Clinton To Missing State Department Billions…
The amount of money missing is staggering…
According to an Inspector General’s report, a staggering $6 billion dollars in State Department funds is missing—“misplaced,” in the words of Hillary Clinton. In one case, Hillary Clinton wrote a $50 million check for “services performed.” The paperwork for what exactly the “services performed” were has also been “misplaced.” Just for the Iraq Embassy in Bagdad, a staggering $2 billion is missing! Obama’s response to Hillary Clinton “misplacing” $6 billion dollars?
“What difference does it make!”
But Hillary Clinton has bigger problems than a few billion dollars missing: It has now come out that her 2008 presidential campaign was illegally funded by businessman Jeffrey Thompson, with Clinton crony and former DNC chief Minyon Moore pulling the strings.
But there’s more: court documents show that Thompson illegally funded dozens of campaigns—and guess who he supported in 2012? You guessed it: Barack Hussein Obama.
Over at the Daily Kos … yeah, the gathering place for liberals to get their daily dose of certified left-wing bullshit; you know, like flies gathering around the smell of dung, there’s an article “debunking” my piece. Someone didn’t appreciate my highlighting of the former first b#tch, Hillary Clinton and how utterly corrupt she is, and how even she couldn’t name a single accomplishment as Secretary of State during a recent interview.
The piece at the Daily Kos is entitled Hillary’s Otstanding Accomplishments (sic) (The dumbasses can’t even spell ‘outstanding’ correctly). In short the piece is about 15 paragraphs about how Hillary was an exceptional child with a keen intellect, and that she was a good student. As you continue reading the piece you begin to wonder when the author is going to reveal the list of great achievements, especially the ones while she was Secretary of State.
There aren’t any, none, nada, zilch, zero, nothing, not one at all. In fact, the following is listed at the Daily Kos as Hillary’s greatest accomplishment:
Perhaps Hillary’s greatest accomplishment … in effect, made a mockery of the culture of Republican machismo in Washington when she refused to produce a soap opera-like reaction to revelations of Willy’s philandering.
What a joke! Hillary’s greatest accomplishment was to stay married to her perverse, sexual predator of a husband.
That dastardly Bundy bunch. How dare they not pay the federal government grazing fees to have their herd of cattle feed on Federal … er … publically … whatever, owned land? Lock their a$$es up and take their cows. But you know folks, I’ve had a feeling all along there’s much we’re not seeing here. Now liberals see only the above. They’re minds cannot process anything beyond what’s posted on the White House blog or Mother Jones or MEDIAMATTERS.
Oh, one side note here. I saw where a liberal actually wrote, because the Bundy family has been in the Nevada area since the mid 1880′s that perhaps they should consider any native Americans who probably have been there even before them. Well, why don’t we just go back farther. I mean you know, there were cave men before the native Americans, and monkeys before that … and evolving from the monkeys even before the native Americans, came the liberals.
Anyway I happened by the Noisy Room and found quite an interesting piece.
LATEST: Clinton/Obama cronies behind push to remove Bundy cattle
Note: a slightly altered version of this story appears at WND today as well.
Following a weeklong confrontation between protestors and police from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), events at the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada came to an abrupt end on Saturday, April 11, when the BLM suddenly threw in the towel and left. Speaking to a local TV news program Monday, Nevada Senator and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said, “This isn’t over…” And he is certainly correct. The showdown between BLM and Cliven Bundy – the last rancher in Clark County, Nevada – was but the latest battle in a long-running conflict, and it is sure to continue. Too much is at stake.
Supposedly at issue was the desert tortoise, a reptile on the endangered species list which could not coexist on the land with Bundy’s cattle. But why would the turtle suddenly be threatened by animals it had cohabited with for the 100 plus years the Bundy ranch has been in operation?
A BLM document unearthed last week discusses mitigation strategies for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone. Dry Lake is just southwest of the Bundy ranch. The “mitigation strategy” proposed to use the grazing lands near the Bundy ranch as a kind of sanctuary for the desert tortoise, because the entire region is slated for a large number of solar, wind and geothermal energy generation facilities. The solar projects especially will obliterate most of the turtle’s natural habitat.
Bloggers quickly made a connection between the effort to remove Bundy’s cattle and a solar energy project located in Southern Nevada and financed by the Communist Chinese energy firm ENN. It was to be the largest solar farm in the U.S. Senator Reid had lobbied heavily for their business, even traveling to China to do so. Reid’s son, formerly a Clark County Commissioner, became a lobbyist for ENN, and Reid placed a former senior advisor, Neil Kornze, to lead the BLM, presumably to assure the enterprise’s success.
Seemed like a slam dunk. But a solar energy complex financed by the Communist Chinese was not at the heart of the Bundy Ranch fiasco after all. That project died last year. However, the BLM’s library of renewable energy projects accessed by the author revealed it was only one of more than 50 solar, wind and geothermal projects planned for Nevada, California, Arizona and other Western states. Reid was actually focused on at least one, and maybe more of these projects, much closer to the Bundy ranch. He was at the work site on March 21, 2014 to help break ground on the Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project. A close inspection of this project reveals why there is so much interest in the area and why the BLM, presumably at Reid’s urging through his water boy, Neil Kornze, is so intent on getting Bundy off the land. Reid, for all his rampant corruption (the Nevada mob call him “Cleanface”), looks to be little more than the bagman in this caper. Oh sure, he and his boys will get rich, but not like the others.
The leaseholder for this project is K Road Power, LLC, a New York City-based energy company. An examination of their website finds their business development manager to be none other than Jonathan Magaziner. Magaziner was formerly an associate at the Clinton Climate Initiative of the William J. Clinton Foundation. He is also the son of Ira Magaziner, former senior policy advisor for Bill Clinton, also now conveniently working for the Clinton Foundation on health and environment issues. Just one big, happy, and soon to be even richer, family. There are doubtless more connections to Democratic insiders here.
But that is not all. A company called First Solar is listed on a BLM renewable energy project map of southern Nevada, one of 11 sited in Clark County. Additionally, the map shows six wind projects in Clark County, and also lists the K Road Moapa project under “transmission projects.” In other words, there is a lot going on. How did the media miss all that?
First Solar investors comprise a who’s who of the corrupt, Democratic Left insider crowd, including major Obama campaign bundlers, billionaire investor Paul Tudor Jones, Al Gore, Ted Turner and Goldman Sachs. First Solar’s CEO is Michael Ahearn, former fundraiser for both Obama and Senator Harry Reid. First Solar has at least three other solar projects in California. So it becomes very apparent why the BLM, Harry Reid and many other interested parties have such an intense interest in the desert tortoise. They see green, oceans of it. But it is the kind that lines pockets, not the high desert.
I find it interesting that those who lean towards the left, ie. liberals, proclaim that America is a country of laws and if one breaks the law there are consequences. Oddly enough there’s not a word that’s issued when team Obama refuse to enforce current Federal laws, but I digress.
The country of laws proclaim is in response to the stand-off between the BLM and the Cliven Bundy family in Nevada. Personally I get a little confused when reading left-wing sites as some claim the Bundys were trespassing on “Public” land and others say the land is Federally owned. A little consistency would be helpful but then again, these points are made by liberals.
Okay I’ll concede the idea that when folks break the law, there should be consequences. However when those making the laws and regulations and requirements are continually changing said laws, adding requirements that are nearly impossible to meet then perhaps some rebellion, if you will, is in order especially when folks are losing their livelihoods. The government is supposed to regulate businesses to a certain extent, but not to the point of putting people out of business. I would think the government would encourage people to earn a living. The letter I posted yesterday which was written by a neighbor of the Bundy family made it clear the BLM has put a lot of ranchers out of business. Since 1976 the ranchers getting grazing permits has dropped from 52 to 3.
Now your typical self-righteous liberal will say something like, “If you don’t like the law of the land, raise support and put their issues on ballots, hold elections and get the laws they don’t like changed.” In the mean time the government will round up all your cattle, auction them off and confiscate your home, so you’ll have nothing to return to after you put your issues on ballots and hold elections.
The Bundy and BLM standoff isn’t the first defiance of the “law of the land” in America.
Unions have gone on strike, illegally, to get what they wanted, and I don’t recall liberals condemning that action. The protests in Flint Michigan in 1936 and Birmingham, Alabama in 1963 are a couple examples of folks illegally protesting unfair and unjust laws.
Left-wing opinion blogs have also left out the most pertinent facts of the matter such as the Chinese energy company of which Harry Reid’s son is the representative of wanting the land to build their a solar farm on. Maybe that has something to do with Harry Reid saying “This isn’t over yet.” Senator Reid’s former senior advisor just happened to be appointed director of BLM shortly before the stand-off began.
It’s odd that not one liberal site even mentions those things. Nah, they’re focusing on the law breaking rancher and fabricating scenarios such as the ranchers will use their women as human shields if things get violent. Unbelievable.
There’s a lot more going on than just some rancher owing grazing fees.
I ran across this video over at Young Conservatives blog.
In less than four minutes this guy explains how irrational atheists are …
At first I started this post with some clever comments about liberals. But I changed my mind. I stated what I think about them in my previous post.
Moving on, the following letter will give some understanding to those who care about what the government can do to any American family. We need to support each other when that government through heavy-handed and overbearing tactics attempt to usurp authority on the American public.
I’m going to post the letter in it’s entirety.

Fellow rancher’s viral letter explains so much about why ranchers support ‘hero’ Bundy
Photo Credit: egoswick blogspot
These are some of the many photographs I ( Emily, ‘The Rancher’s Daughter’) have taken at ropings, brandings, or simply just out my back door. I am the daughter of a 5th generation cattle rancher. Note: Photo does not depict anyone named in this article.
With debate raging over whether the Bureau of Land Management is overstepping its authority in stopping rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle from grazing on public land, one of Bundy’s neighbors offered to settle the question.
In an open letter, Bundy’s neighbor, Kena Lytle Gloeckner, explained why ranchers are supporting Bundy. Her letter, which has been posted on numerous blogs, said:
There have been a lot of people criticizing Clive Bundy because he did not pay his grazing fees for 20 years. The public is also probably wondering why so many other cowboys are supporting Mr. Bundy even though they paid their fees and Clive did not. What you people probably do not realize is that on every rancher’s grazing permit it says the following: “You are authorized to make grazing use of the lands, under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management and covered by this grazing permit, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this grazing permit and payment of grazing fees when due.” The “mandatory” terms and conditions go on to list the allotment, the number and kind of livestock to be grazed, when the permit begins and ends, the number of active or suspended AUMs (animal units per month), etc. The terms and conditions also list specific requirements such as where salt or mineral supplements can be located, maximum allowable use of forage levels (40% of annual growth), etc., and include a lot more stringent policies that must be adhered to. Every rancher must sign this “contract” agreeing to abide by the TERMS AND CONDITIONS before he or she can make payment.
In the early 90s, the BLM went on a frenzy and drastically cut almost every rancher’s permit because of this desert tortoise issue, even though all of us ranchers knew that cow and desert tortoise had co-existed for a hundred+ years. As an example, a family friend had his permit cut by 90%. For those of you who are non-ranchers, that would be equated to getting your paycheck cut 90%. In 1976 there were approximately 52 ranching permittees in this area of Nevada. Presently, there are 3. Most of these people lost their livelihoods because of the actions of the BLM. Clive Bundy was one of these people who received extremely unfair and unreasonable TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Keep in mind that Mr. Bundy was required to sign this contract before he was allowed to pay. Had Clive signed on the dotted line, he would have, in essence, signed his very livelihood away. And so Mr. Bundy took a stand, not only for himself, but for all of us. He refused to be destroyed by a tyrannical federal entity and to have his American liberties and freedoms taken away. Also keep in mind that all ranchers financially paid dearly for the forage rights those permits allow – – not rights to the land, but rights to use the forage that grows on that land. Many of these AUMS are water based, meaning that the rancher also has a vested right (state owned, not federal) to the waters that adjoin the lands and allow the livestock to drink. These water rights were also purchased at a great price.
If a rancher cannot show beneficial use of the water (he must have the appropriate number of livestock that drinks and uses that water), then he loses that water right. Usually water rights and forage rights go hand in hand. Contrary to what the BLM is telling you, they NEVER compensate a rancher for the AUMs they take away. Most times, they tell ranchers that their AUMS are “suspended,” but not removed. Unfortunately, my family has thousands of “suspended” AUMs that will probably never be returned. And so, even though these ranchers throughout the course of a hundred years invested thousands(and perhaps millions) of dollars and sacrificed along the way to obtain these rights through purchase from others, at a whim the government can take everything away with the stroke of a pen. This is the very thing that Clive Bundy singlehandedly took a stand against. Thank you, Clive, from a rancher who considers you a hero.
