The smoking solar powered gun behind the Bundy Ranch situation?

I'm sure you've heard all about how there was a "failed" or defunct solar power deal in line for the BLM land that is currently in the subject of dispute between the federal government and the Bundy Ranch.  One line of thought takes the approach that Harry Reid has some sort of solar power deal lined up with the Chinese.  At first, I believed that this was a red herring because of this article.......

Then, this was brought to my attention.  I'll quote directly from the now disappeared announcement at blm.gov.  Read carefully.

  • Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle.

I'm sure you would like to see the original but....it's been disappeared from blm.gov.

Is Cliven Bundy's real problem that he's not Bechtel?  Follow the money, folks.
