HAPPY NEW YEAR to Coach is Right readers.
And thank you for making 2015 the biggest year in readership the CiR site has ever had.
The piece which follows was written by CiR staff writer Suzanne Eovaldi and originally posted on January 3rd of 2015. Being one of the most pleasant memories of the past year (after all, criminals don’t often leave the Senate “voluntarily”) I thought our readers would enjoy reading it one more time.

edit note: I could NOT find an authoritative source to cite in re a mafia ordered beating of Reid so I leave it up to the reader
“Very suspicious,” said a Florida sports medicine surgeon who qualified his remarks by saying, “I’m not an expert in this area. . .the orbital or peri-orbital or eye problems.” He wanted to reiterate that his area of medical expertise is “from the neck down,” and “I’m speaking as a lay person in this area.” But he said when he saw pictures of right eye injuries to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, the surgeon said, “He certainly looks beat down.”
The esteemed Florida sports surgeon was responding to a reporter’s question, “Are the injuries of Harry Reid the result of injuries from a broken exercise belt that sprung back and hit the Democrat Senator in the right eye?” Reid’s injuries include “multiple broken bones around his right eye, damage to the right eye, severe facial bruising, broken ribs, and a concussion.” A Naples sports clinic staff member who didn’t know who Harry Reid was declined to comment. A spokesman in Reid’s Capitol office said he could not comment on the record or off the record about what happened to his boss. “I’m not authorized to speak on the matter.” “We know… what’s on the web,” he said. “He and his staff are in Nevada,” the press office representative added.
Reid’s injuries are so severe that he has yet to regain sight in his right eye. The senator has also decided to step down as Minority Leader and will not seek re-election after his 30 year Congressional career. Though the American people deserve some specific answers about this situation, they apparently won’t be getting them any time soon. According to the Powerlineblog, Reid showed up at a Las Vegas emergency room on New Year’s Day, 2015 with these very serious injuries and told attending ER doctors a broken exercise belt had done it. However, speculation on the web is reaching nearly 4 million “hits” on the story title, “What really happened to Harry Reid?” Another report claims over 90,000 google searches want to know what happened.
Trying to run down the background of Obama’s Senate big shot is like trying to find one’s way through a maze of political connections with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Nevada Gaming Commission. Perhaps the most important—and shady– Reid connection involves the Seeno brothers, each holding 30% of the shares in the Coyote Springs real estate development, now on hold, about one hour’s drive from Las Vegas. The Cliven Bundy grazing showdown in the desert may have merely provided cover for the liberal media which of course will not investigate what Reid is really up to. “Liberal oriented media, along with their neo-conservative counterparts on the right, are once again reading from the same web page and [are] over concerned with Cliven Bundy’s alleged racist comments.”
A former Nevada Gaming Commissioner, Reid is coming under fire because of “highly questionable connections to the Chinese energy corporation ENN, through its Nevada counterpart ENN Mojave Energy,” says web researcher Shawn Helton. “The land deal was reportedly a steal for Chinese business investors who were set to receive a sweetheart deal of 87 PERCENT discount.” Using the supposedly endangered desert tortoise as a reason for the fast track federal takeover of expanded habitat, the BLM was subsequently sued by grass roots watchdogs who questioned other land grabs by the federal government.
Another moving part in this Reid maze involves his son Rory Reid, a lawyer heading lobbying efforts for Las Vegas hotel and casino connections. The Reid Oligarch themed blog says, “Harry Reid, the highest ranking Democratic Senator, is said to have been busy brokering a $5 BILLION dollar deal to secure a solar farm site in Laughlin, NV…” During Reid’s trip to China in 2011, he reportedly pushed the ENN Group CEO to take on development of a huge solar energy project in southern NV “to provide 30% of CA’s energy needs.”
Hang on, it gets even more convoluted. Harvey Whittemore, former lawyer and lobbyist for the law firm which employs Reid’s son, was brought in front of a federal grand jury for, among other things, donating illegal funds to Reid’s re-election campaign. Whittemore then allegedly sold his interests in the Wingfield Nevada Group and its affiliate Coyote Springs to Thomas Seeno and his brother Alberto Seeno, a 70 year NV family dynasty which is also under federal investigation. “The Seeno family reportedly contributed $38, 800 to Reid’s re-election bid.”
An illegal land swap for the victimized desert turtle was the subject of legal action filed by public lands groups who went up against the BLM. Reid, Coyote Springs, environmental waivers for endangered species, NV desert land development, Chinese solar energy projects in America, the NV Gaming Commission; well, connecting the dots here becomes difficult, to say the least. Are the Bundy dustup and the turtle tale merely cover for this unbelievable web of political maneuverings by the Democrat leader?
At the end of this piece, we still are left with “What really happened to Harry Reid?” That must have been one hell of a strong elastic band that slapped the Senate’s most corrupt member upside the head, right?
