  • Harry Reid: A McCarthy for Our Time

    National Review ^ | 04/24/2014 | Victor Davis Hanson
    We should ask Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) the same question once posed to Senator Joseph McCarthy by U.S. Army head-counsel Robert N. Welch: “Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” Reid is back in the news for denigrating the peaceful supporters of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, a popular critic of the Bureau of Land Management policy, as “domestic terrorists.” McCarthy in the 1950s became infamous for smearing his opponents with lurid allegations that he could not prove, while questioning their patriotism. Reid has brought back to the...

    Majority Leader (D-Nevada) Harry Reid is threatening Cliven Bundy with the ominous words “something is going to happen.” “ “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” If it weren’t so scary, it would be funny. Reid’s manner of speaking is like the person that says “No offense meant, but…”...

    Associated Press ^ | Apr 23, 2014 4:33 PM EDT | Philip Elliott
    The fight for the Senate majority boils down to boogeyman billionaires against the shifty septuagenarian—if party operatives’ spin is to be believed. For months, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been unrelenting in his criticism of Charles and David Koch, the wealthy industrialists who have backed some of the nation’s most effective conservative groups. Now, Republican candidates are adjusting their plans. They’re linking Democratic Senate candidates to Reid, painting the 74-year-old leader and his allies as unscrupulous politicians. “There’s little doubt that Harry Reid is abusing his power as majority leader and resorting to desperate and deceitful measures to hold...

    Arizona’s Senate president is under fire from an unlikely source within his own political party: Sarah Palin. The former vice presidential candidate took to Facebook on Tuesday to chastise Senate President Andy Biggs as the “only man standing in the way” of a vote on a measure to call an Article V Convention to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Palin notes that similar measures have already been approved in several states. But she said thanks to Biggs, a Gilbert Republican and leader of the GOP in the Senate, Arizona’s opportunities to approve SCR 1016 are rapidly dwindling. Legislatures in...

Harry Reid for illegally using our tax dollars to play his “politics of personal destruction” including trying to humiliate and ruin reputations of good Americans for his radically liberal partisan purposes (including his ongoing jihad against private citizens David and Charles Koch, whom Reid hypocritically benefits from by having accepted their campaign donations through Koch-connected PACs).

Bundy appeared on the program to respond to overheated rhetoric from the left which has now prompted some to call for drone strikes against the ranch. "Why, Harry, are you calling for a civil war?" Bundy asked. "That's not what we the people want. We just want to disarm the army, and get out of our state, and...

    So, are the self-styled, armed militia now camping out on the Cliven Bundy cattle ranch domestic terrorists, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says? Or are they “patriots,” as Nevada’s junior senator, Dean Heller, called them? They’re neither. First, when one thinks of domestic terrorists, one calls to mind Americans who have turned against their country and committed horrific acts of murder. Timothy McVeigh, who drove the truck bomb that destroyed the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995, for example. Or Unibomber Ted Kaczynski, who hand-delivered or sent bombs through the mail for nearly 20 years before being arrested in...

    Some have speculated that the standoff between federal agents and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy is the result of a secretive deal orchestrated by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and political allies in the solar industry. But the Bundy standoff is really the culmination of a long battle with environmentalists who want to keep federal lands off limits to economic activity. The primary vehicle used by government officials and environmentalists to advance this goal has been the desert tortoise, which was listed as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act in 1990. The land Bundy’s family had used for cattle grazing since...

    The story of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with federal authorities has become one of those seemingly local stories that ends up exploding across national media because of its convenient partisan narrative. While conservative-friendly outlets like Fox News have taken to defending Bundy’s right to raise cattle on federally-protected land, liberal ones like MSNBC have taken the government’s side, best personified by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who has now twice referred to Bundy’s supporters as “domestic terrorists.” But with Fox doing so much actual defending of Bundy, did MSNBC’s Ed Schultz go too far last week when...

    To win the Senate, Republicans must win North Carolina.

It’s the key to control of the Senate. Obama Hagan It’s number six on my list. That is, there are five states where capturing Democratic seats appears more likely—West Virginia, South Dakota, Montana, Louisiana, Arkansas. Then comes North Carolina. Assuming Republicans don’t lose any of their own seats, those six pickups would give Republicans a 51-49 majority. And with it, the political...

I think a good place to start is with Pope John Paul II. Blessed Pope...

    Not surprisingly, the FOX News van carried the only media members covering an unfolding story in which dozens, possibly hundreds of Americans were facing death at the hands of Barack Obama’s, armed Bureau of Land Management mercenaries. And make no mistake, Nevada BLM personnel also escaped the possibility of thousands descending upon their offices, only because cooler heads prevailed. The video which follows shows just how close this fraudulent tale of the habitat of “desert tortoises” came to being a disaster. Whether Harry Reid and his sniveling son were involved in engineering the week-long, federal intimidation of Cliven Bundy and...

    Once upon a time there were more than fifty cattle ranches operating in the area of Southern Nevada where Cliven Bundy, with the help of numerous armed patriots from all over, is making his stand against the abusive, bankrupting tactics of the bullying federal government. Now, there is only one rancher and his family left. After several generations of his ancestors’ having use of the land in question, Bundy is literally the “last man standing” in what is, evidently, a long-range vendetta against ranchers by land-grabbing federal bureaucrats who, also literally, have gone power mad–that is, mad for solar power...

    While many have condemned the strong-arming and pseudo-military tactics of the Bureau of Labor Management in its standoff with Cliven Bundy, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, reserved his criticism for the Bundy family and their many supporters — which he labelled domestic terrorists.Reid’s comments came during a live interview with Steve Sebelius, a columnist for the Las Vegas Review Journal. Reporter Jon Ralston, who attended the event, tweeted Reid’s statements regarding the dispute between Bundy and the BLM: “What happened in Mesquite was domestic terrorism.” @SenatorReid— Jon Ralston (@RalstonReports) April 17, 2014 Reid was referring to the...

    Folks, with Harry Reid calling the Bunkerville patriots "Domestic Terrorists" who are endangering children by putting them "out front", and with April 19th approaching I thought I would open this thread.With Jim's permission I ask all Nevada Freepers (potentially SoCal too) to report gathering Federales and unusual Military movements in the area. Keep a particular eye around Nellis AFB and especially Creech AFB (Predator Drones). If you see something, say something. Asking for tolerance and indulgence from the admins to put this on the Front Page News bar.

    <p>As Western Journalism reported yesterday, a series of photos from the scene of a federal government standoff in Clark County, Nev. indicate Bureau of Land Management agents slaughtered multiple cows on the Bundy Ranch. After alleging the ranch’s owner, Cliven Bundy, had failed to pay federal grazing fees for a number of years, armed BLM agents swarmed the area, resorting to physical violence against members of the family and threats toward those who arrived to support them.</p>

    After the federal Bureau of Land Management agents backed down from their intimidating stance at the Bundy Ranch last weekend, ample evidence has surfaced indicating the standoff between the government and the Nevada ranching family is far from over. Throughout the weeklong stalemate, members of the Bundy family were physically assaulted by armed officers, numerous cows were shot dead, and protesters faced threats of gunfire for merely expressing their outrage. Immediately after what many considered a victory against a tyrannical federal agency, a number of leftist voices – most notably, Sen. Harry Reid – indicated the action against this family...

    The showdown between federal authorities and rancher Cliven Bundy, his family and supporters in Nevada is one of those rare topics from the libertarian-conservative news agenda that actually made its way into the establishment media. Between last Thursday and Monday, ABC, CBS and NBC gave the story a total of nearly 16 minutes of coverage on their morning and evening newscasts. Network journalists have consistently framed the case as one of a rancher failing to pay the requested fees for his use of government land. But they have failed to use the case to tell the larger story of how...

    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. The Salt Lake Tribune points out that Johnson has no way of knowing whether the funds actually made it to...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he believes the supporters who rallied around Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy in his fight against the federal government are “domestic terrorists” and Bundy does not respect his country. The Las Vegas Journal-Review reported that Reid, D-Nev., made the comments at an event Thursday hosted by the paper called “Hashtags & Headlines.” Federal land managers backed down in a weekend standoff with Bundy after hundreds of states' rights protesters, including armed militia members, showed up to protest federal officials seizing his cattle. Some protesters had their guns drawn and pointed toward law enforcement, some of...
