It's not about a solar plant...It's about gorgeous real estate in God's Country.
Bundy vs. BLM: The Plot Unfolds

After surveying the Bundy Ranch and adjacent river side land (real estate), I drove the short distance along Riverside Road to Mesquite to visit my nephew.
During the drive, I recalled that this land has often been used by Hollywood studios as the backdrop in Western movies.
In Mesquite, we waited over an hour for a table at the Casa Blanca steakhouse, then when I tried to get a room for the night was informed they were sold out.
I learned that the hotel and several others are now owned by Chinese investors who are pouring in tens of millions to make their resorts competitive to the Strip.
Bunday’s land and water rights are ten minutes away in what one can only describe as God’s Country—one of the most beautiful spots in Nevada.
I do not believe this dispute is over grazing rights or preserving an endangered species. It’s all about real estate, and I believe the BLM are being used as pawns in a land grab to benefit politically connected developers.
On March 26, Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie said, “No drop of human blood is worth spilling over any cow, in my opinion.”
And, no drop of human blood is worth spilling over someone’s desire to develop beautiful real estate, either.
