China Is Invading Idaho

A plan is in the works to make Idaho the first Chinese-owned state in the United States. This plan is called Project 60. It is part of the globalization of America. Project 60 uses a federal program that grants permanent residency to foreign nationals and gives special tax exemptions to foreign firms that move to the United States. The original purpose of this program was to create more U.S. jobs and reduce our terrible unemployment rate. But surprise, surprise, the Chinese industries in Idaho are being staffed by Chinese workers imported to the U.S.
Top Idaho officials have been traveling to China and entertaining Chinese officials to facilitate this plan. China is financing these enterprises with its sovereign wealth funds and government-owned enterprises. One Chinese firm is building a fertilizer plant in American Falls, Idaho. China bought 50 square miles of land south of Boise. Idaho Governor Butch Otter, who is a big booster of these plans, has agreed to give China "hassle free" landing rights at Idaho's main airport.

Idaho is not the only state that is inviting Chinese money. China is buying a large chunk of real estate in Toledo, Ohio, and oil and gas fields in Texas.
U.S. taxpayers paid Communist China to build and install the replacement of the San Francisco-Oakland Bridge that was destroyed in the 1989 earthquake. That's a $7 billion project, one of the most expensive structures ever built. This project didn't make shovel-ready jobs for unemployed Americans. 3,000 Chinese laborers are doing the work to install more than two dozen giant steel modules. A typical Chinese employee works from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week, lives in a company dorm, and is paid $9 to $12 a day.
