Did Harry Reid’s Brother Beat Him Up?

|| By FITSNEWS || According to Democratic leader Harry Reid – who recently announced his impending retirement from the U.S. Senate – the severe facial injuries (and broken ribs) he suffered on New Year’s Day were due to an exercise accident involving a resistance band.

“The band broke, and it catapulted me backwards onto one side,” Reid explained at the time. “I crashed into a series of cabinets we have and, fortunately, it missed my temple by just a little tiny bit and it hit me on my right eye and it broke a number of bones around my eye and broke four ribs.”

Is that really what happened, though?

A number of conspiracy theories have emerged related to Reid’s accident – which is finally beginning to receive some scrutiny from the mainstream media.

One national blogger who has been exploring the Reid saga is John Hinderaker of the PowerLine Blog.  In his latest installment, Hinderaker offers an interesting counter-narrative for Reid’s injuries – an alleged fight between the powerful leader and his brother, Larry Reid.

According to the website, Larry Reid showed up at an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting on New Year’s Eve in Henderson, Nevada.  He allegedly had “blood on his clothing” and a “swollen left hand.”  He told attendees that he’d been in a fight with a family member – and was afraid the Secret Service was coming to get him.


No one at the meeting thought much of Larry Reid’s story until a month later, when his face was plastered all over the news in connection with a Boulder City, Nevada driving under the influence/ battery/ weapons arrest.

At that point, several attendees at the AA meeting recognized him – and connected the timing of his appearance with the injuries sustained by Harry Reid.

One attendee at the meeting even told his story to a local television station – but was told the station wasn’t interested.

Hmmmmm …

Like that local station, we’re not especially interested in what happened to Harry Reid on New Year’s Eve/ Day, either … although it’s interesting how quickly and dutifully the mainstream media accepted the Senator’s version of events regarding the injuries he sustained.

No, we’re far more interested in the media’s failure to explore his Yucca conspiracy with U.S. president Barack Obama – which has exposed taxpayers (especially South Carolina taxpayers) to serious injury.

That’s the mystery we believe needs to be investigated …

This is one crisis that ole Harry would rather see go to waste.

More likely some bent noses from Las Vegas. Wynn, et al, have a lot at stake there and those investments ain’t smelling too good with Reid spouting “progressive” spew and acting more as a shi’ite disturber than as a senator.

Stranger things have happened when a poli-wog gets out of line or goes up against the ‘Vegas crowd.

GrandTango April 6, 2015 at 2:26 pm

Sounds Mob to me, too…

LOL – not funny, but explanation is.

cuvinny April 6, 2015 at 2:04 pm

“Like that local station, we’re not especially interested in what happened to Harry Reid on New Year’s Eve/ Day, either”

Then why write a post on it 4 months after the fact based on some random blog based off of hearsay?

GrandTango April 6, 2015 at 2:13 pm

LMAO…Typical corrupt lefwinger..

If you lie and stall to cover up your corruption…when the truth about all the crap you steal, and the Filth you promote , FINALLY tickles out, (like Hillary) you say “What Difference Does it Make?”…

I think you get away w/ it to some extent…but people are Sick of suffering under your MISERABLE liberal leadership…and blaming Bush is not working for you…

That’s why Harry is leaving as a disgraced, @$$-kicked dirtbag…Hahahah…And Hillary is getting her @$$ kicked (figuratively) too…Hahahaha…

” some random blog,”
If you think that John Hinderaker of Powerline runs “some random blog,” you must be some kind of random idiot.

guest April 6, 2015 at 3:53 pm

I had never heard of it. One google seach tells me why. Hinderaker in 2008-

“Obama thinks he is a good talker, but he is often undisciplined when he speaks. He needs to understand that as president, his words will be scrutinized and will have impact whether he intends it or not. In this regard, President Bush is an excellent model; Obama should take a lesson from his example. Bush never gets sloppy when he is speaking publicly. He chooses his words with care and precision, which is why his style sometimes seems halting. In the eight years he has been president, it is remarkable how few gaffes or verbal blunders he has committed. If Obama doesn’t raise his standards, he will exceed Bush’s total before he is inaugurated.”

—Conservative blogger/writer and lawyer John Hinderaker compares Barack Obama’s oratorical skills with George W. Bush’s on the conservative blog Power Line

erneba April 6, 2015 at 4:04 pm

“I had never heard of it.”
Give it a try, you could use it.
And his assessment of Obama, I agree.

trannyoakley April 7, 2015 at 12:37 am

Bush can’t get through a two word sentence without screwing it up.

idcydm April 6, 2015 at 2:08 pm

The Ried brothers always get in fights, they’ve been doing it for ten years. Let Harry prove they don’t.

They can call it whatever they want, he’s not going to be elected again is he.

GrandTango April 6, 2015 at 2:28 pm

Possible FITS Types are running a Smoke-screen for Reid.

This has got MOB written all over it…and Reid is a up to his eye-balls in dirty deals and corruption…like most high-level Democrats…

I would not be quick to jump on some excuse a Democrat is running, based on FITS connecting to it…More of a chance it’s a ruse to get you off the truth, and protect a Democrat from revealing criminal activity…….

As it was that Mitt Romney had to prove to Harry Reid that he did pay his taxes, it is now up to Harry Reid to prove to everyone that he did not get in a fight with his brother. We shall apply the “Harry Reid” logic since he first invoked it.

Tazmaniac April 6, 2015 at 3:37 pm

Those Reid brothers…..one is lowdown, lying, POS, sorry street trash, and the other appears to have a drinking problem.

TroubleBaby April 6, 2015 at 3:54 pm

I could see the setup/variation of the old standby, but I award you one “thumbs up” anyway because it’s still funny/true.

K.Mann April 9, 2015 at 11:08 pm

I don’t believe Harry Reid has the strength to break a rubber band let alone one of those resistance bands on an exercise machine that has enough resistance force to catapult him across the room.

TroubleBaby April 10, 2015 at 8:08 am

Apparently by one of the links below he was an ass kicker in his youth and fight quite a bit. It was hard for me to believe when I read it…and it’s hard to verify…but there was a picture of him kicking the shit out of some guy in a boxing ring.

Dollar Bill April 6, 2015 at 3:41 pm

Rush Limbaugh said week before last that he thought it was amusing that Reid was attacked by an exercise machine. He called bullshit. Now, it seems, that blogs that don’t care are giving it some space. Anyone with any fucking sense at all knew that Harry Reid got his ass kicked but the big question is by who.

Mobsters in Vegas? Possibly but unlikely. His scumbag brother? That is believable.
The real who probably is further up the chain that anyone in the media could ever imagine but whoever it is has plenty to get ole Harry to keep his trap shut and retire.

guest April 6, 2015 at 3:43 pm

So much for AA being anonymous.

One of those who had been present at the AA meeting called Las Vegas’s Channel 8 to tell them about Larry Reid’s account of fighting with a family member, but that person said that whoever he spoke with at the television station told him they were not interested.

Pineapple Twist April 6, 2015 at 7:00 pm

I hate to say this, because some need that, but I would never attend an AA meeting if I were a daily drunk who couldn’t even function. I’d just shoot myself first. These AA meetings are anything but anon. And one of the twelve steps, well, I just simply don’t agree with some of them. I can find better reading than attending.

I will say, I know they have helped some, so I am not going to diss on them, but not my cup of tea (or wine).

Rehab is for quitters!

Pineapple Twist April 6, 2015 at 9:18 pm

Quitters in every sense.

idcydm April 7, 2015 at 10:26 am

I know a guy that didn’t attend and he did eventually shoot himself, too bad he didn’t attend.

I attended almost 30 years ago and it helped me. AA is like anything else you take the good and leave the bad. The twelve steps were hard but I did them. I can’t tell you the last time I went to an AA meeting but I’m still clean and sober because I still use what a learned in AA. The biggest thing I learned, look at yourself first, what am I doing to cause my problems (part of the twelve steps).

BTW not saying you are one but I heard what we call drunk talk in your comment.

Pineapple Twist April 7, 2015 at 10:32 am

I am glad it helped you. What you hear in my comment isn’t drunk talk, but dealing with co-dependency. The steps are the same.

I read books that help. I like Nathaniel Branden. I grew up in a co-dependent environment, I was the “hero” in that situation, the over achiever. Then later in life, I found that I had fallen into that same trap, with others, I became the “caregiver” aka rescuer/enabler.

idcydm April 7, 2015 at 10:48 am

After I got sober I wouldn’t let the caregivers be caregivers to me, it almost cost me my wife.

It’s good you found that the enabler can be just as sick as the addict. In many cases it is harder to overcome than addiction, The enabler has nothing to hang their hat on whereas the addict can use the addiction as a coat rake.

Addiction sure affects a lot of people and in so many different ways.

Pineapple Twist April 7, 2015 at 10:57 am

Opiate addiction runs on one side of my family – I absolutely hate opiates. I was reacting horribly. My bank account was bleeding and every where I turned someone needed something. I was crumbling under the stress.

I am always self analyzing and have always loved psychology. I knew I couldn’t “fix” these problems, I had to admit it to myself. I also had to let go. One day it was like a light switched on and I realized I was part of the problem. The minute I did, I started reading and pushing back, cutting money, limiting conversations to email, stopped answering my phone – you name.

I think it has helped, at least 2 people are clean. I thought I was helping them – they always need money. Cut out the money and use goes down.

I miss them, but it crossed my heart too much and I had to make changes for me and for them.

idcydm April 7, 2015 at 11:05 am

Tough love is always the hardest, my daughter wouldn’t talk to me for over a year after I told her you can’t bull shit a bull shitter and you haven’t done anything I haven’t already done. That was many years ago, thank God she turned her life around.

Pineapple Twist April 7, 2015 at 11:22 am

My mother got addicted while I was probably in the 1st grade. I still remember what she used to be like, but I haven’t seen the real her since then. I left my home state at 19.

We didn’t even speak for about 10 years and now when we do it is usu when she needs something. We have nothing in common. She does have serious health issues, but it hard to determine what which came first. So many lost years. I have just come to accept it is what it is and there isn’t a thing I can do about it.

I am so glad your daughter turned her life around.

idcydm April 7, 2015 at 11:46 am

Sorry to hear that but you made the right decision, you can’t let them pull you down.

Addiction is so much more than drugs of booze. One of my sons needed help because within a year of his first marriage his wife left his high and dry and deep in debt. We put him on one of our credit cards to us for business only. He used it wisely, paid it off and sent it back to us in pieces. About a year later my other son wanted us to do the same thing for him, I said no, he had a gambling problem. Needless to say thing weren’t good for awhile but he got his act together and all turned out well. On his 20th wedding anniversary we paid for a stay in San Diego for them. He didn’t understand why we did it. I asked him if he remembered when we wouldn’t give him a credit card? He just looked at me and I said you help when the time is right. He didn’t need help but he sure appreciated the love.

Hope your mother can turn things around, just don’t stop loving her, for your own well being.

I’m off now, have some running to do, nice talking with you.

Powerline? Like FITS, a scum sucking echo of libertine trash. Why aren’t there any stories here stolen from the Drudge Report? At least Drudge long, long ago was the source of one — count ’em, one — semi-legitimate slander.

I heard it was Cliven Bundy and his militia.

RightStep April 6, 2015 at 4:14 pm

Is it true that Harry’s brother Larry has not paid any income taxes in over 10 years?
That might get the MSM loons interested.

Whatever happened to old Cliven Bundy ? Haven’t seen him on his BFF, Sean Hannity’s show lately.

He’s involved with trying to pass a bill outlawing the Feds from owning land in NV. And he still hasn’t paid his $1 million in fines/fees. Freeloader.

johnq April 6, 2015 at 6:42 pm

I heard a rumor that Big T was caught sucking Will’s cock and that it was reported by several gay blogs. I too called local TV stations to report this but alas they weren’t interested. Must mean there is something to it. Hmmmm…

Pineapple Twist April 6, 2015 at 6:51 pm

You are just sick.

Pineapple Twist April 6, 2015 at 7:09 pm

You want to spread rumors, just like both parties do. So I want to ask the rest of the audience on this site. Do you really give a shit if what johnq (who hides behind an alias) really says? What if he is right? Do you care? What if he is wrong? Should he be punished?

The beauty of free speech.

Pineapple Twist April 6, 2015 at 7:03 pm

Totally OT: But I notice some of the ads here. Good grief, not sure how they relate to me unless it is because my daughter uses the computer. However, some interesting emails: I get daily msgs. that I have an appt with Tucker (I am guessing a private trainer?) and a few hours later cancelled? Today I am on some dating site invite? Hell, I thought I already was????? LMAO

One Two Three April 6, 2015 at 7:10 pm

All of Dirty Harry’s injuries are consistent with a physical assault. Anyone who has been in fights, sparred, boxed, kick boxed, martial arts (like myself), knows this. Reid got his ass kicked. And rightfully so. The man deserves to be beaten even more. He is a sack of dog shit, as far as I am concerned.

trannyoakley April 7, 2015 at 12:37 am

Like the old man has the strength to break a band even a fractured one. If
anyone has ever worked out on these machines. The band does not snap out like a
projectile otherwise there be a warning on the machine to avoid lawsuits. Here I
thought he tripped on all those bills he was hoarding, when it was his brother.

The Enemy April 7, 2015 at 12:02 pm

We Nevadans know that Harry is a liar extraordinaire, so this article is quite believable.

If this is true judging by the pictures they both received injuries so they should both be arrested for domestic violence.

i know Larry &,he has always been a very private,low key person. I know he was always proud of Harry. Regardless of what truly happened,L.J.R loves his brother.Knowing Larry, all this public buzz is mortifying to him.Hang in there Larry!
Thank you for rescuing 2 broke down friends all the way in Prescott AZ.!

Love ya Larry,

jvinny0210 April 15, 2015 at 4:04 pm

I know for a fact that his brother beat him up. I have pic’s on my Iphone moments after the fight broke out. My family have pleaded with me not to release them to media. I am waiting for best offer. The truth is soon to come out, I guarantee it.

Larry was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. They both got their asses handed to them on a silver platter. Fuck you Harry!
