Hicks said he was deviating from the sentencing guidelines that suggested a minimum of 41 months in prison partly because of Whittemore’s history of extraordinary charitable giving — an estimated $12 million over the past 20 years, much of it to promote medical research, athletics and education at the University of Nevada, Reno. But the judge the crimes were too serious to justify probation without prison time.
Developer Gets 2 Years In Nev. Campaign Cash Case
Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) on Friday called for a Senate
hearing into the dispute between Nevada rancher Cliven
Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over
Reid blasted the supporters for showing up with assault
weapons and boasting about putting children in the front
of the pack.
He said he wants to know who gave that order.
"I want to talk about the fact that they have this kind of
authority and the ability to bully and come in with 200
armed men into a situation like this," he said. "I would like
to have hearings. I would like to find out who is
accountable for this.”

And the simple fact that they even mention cattle as a threat indicates they see Bundy's cows as trouble.
You conviniently forgot to add the word "tresspassing". Which wouldn't be the case if this redneck just paid what he owes.
I’m headed back to the Bundy’s today at 1:00pm. I hope you’ll meet me up there. Take I-15 North towards Mesquite, get off at exit 112, and I’ll be on the left-hand side of the road, about 2.5 miles down. Give yourself about an hour and a half for traffic.
This isn’t my normal, nice, politically correct email, so hang on to your seats. I can tell you that after everything I’ve seen, this roundup was not about grazing fees.
First and foremost, like all Nevadans, I love my country and support my government. I proudly support Nevada being home to military installations needed to defend our nation, the federal government test site to develop the equipment necessary for that defense, and any of the other federal lands and facilities needed to conduct the true business of our federal government. That said, I struggle to see the compelling federal issue of where cows eat.

Well the renewable energy projects are not just in Nevada.
There's several States that are favored in the Federal program underway.
Nevada obviously is getting a lot of the business because of the Democrat political influences.
And to be fair, the solar energy projects there are actually working in some cases.
And you are 100% right about the Lake Meade water problem.
The Vegas metro (3 cities) has bloated to nearly 2 million population in only a few years.
Then add all the visitors to the hotel usage.
LAS VEGAS -- Supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy say the Bureau of Land Management may have impounded his cattle because of recommendations the agency made last month to preserve Gold Butte land Bundy has used without paying federal grazing fees.
The recommendations were included in a March 14 report -- just weeks before the roundup -- that addressed the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone northeast of Las Vegas. ...............
Gold Butte, which covers roughly 350,000 acres south of Interstate 15 near the Arizona border, was initially designated as an area of critical environmental concern (ACEC) by the BLM in 1998 as part of a land management plan for the Las Vegas area.

Here is 2 pieces of property that's owned by Bundy. Each is 80 acres right on the Virgin River. In the box at the lower left corner is gps coordinates. X = North and Y = West. You'll have to experiment on where to put the decimal point. Shouldn't be too hard with some trial and error. There is a horse farm southeast of the Bundy property called Meadowland Farm LLC that looks like something the government might build (320 acres). So is all that Bundy owns 160 acres? I imagined he owned more than that.
In a nutshell Reid and his family are engaged in enriching themselves over the land and is why the standoff was called off. Prying eyes were getting too close to Dirty Harry’s interests, safety was not at issue and it never was.
The Bundy standoff was never about the man but the continuing abuse of power, use of excessive force and overreach by this corrupt govt. It is also about the true intentions of the corrupt in DC and their land grabs for profit
Pirro’s dismantling of Reid shows one side which is corrupt politicians, like Reid, looking to enrich themselves but the govt is grabbing this land to use it as an asset.
Why? The US is $17T++ in debt, we don’t have the money to pay off any of our creditors like China should they ever call in that debt!
The US however is RICH with natural resources that the feds could use to payoff that debt should the day ever come by directly handing it over or auctioning it off.
Don’t say it can’t happen, China has influenced Ecuador do to just that over the $7B they owe… the US is on the hook for $1.3TRILLION with China!!
