Chinese Pipeline of Investors
This information is being sent out to alert Americans as to what is happening in Idaho and throughout this country that involves the public officials soliciting the Communist Chinese to buy American citizenship via the EB-5 visas.
In June of 2010 Idaho Gov. Butch Otter and a delegation including local businesses went on a trade mission to China. The businesses were looking for Chinese that would purchase their goods that could be imported into China, while Gov. Otter invited the Communist Chinese to bring their money and move to Idaho to invest in our economy thru the EB-5 visas.

EB-5 Visa —– “Invest your way into America”
Idaho Gov. Otter quote:
“The value of U.S. residency, and being put on the fast track to citizenship, is an incredible tool to help us attract foreign investment in our Idaho businesses

The investments would be thru the EB-5 foreign investor visas, with $1,000.000 investment going to start a new business and create 10 jobs or with $500.000 they could buy a distressed business and create 10 jobs or invest $500,000 into an EB-5 Regional Center which is made-up of private businesses. The investor is given a green card and in 5 years can get U.S. citizenship. The 10 new jobs created do not have to go to Americans.

The EB-5 Regional Centers are all over the U.S. If the investor chooses to invest in a center they can move and live anywhere they want. Many Communist Chinese are choosing the centers because they do not have to manage a business and can still get U.S. citizenship.

FOREIGN TRADE ZONES —
Any business that wants to export goods can apply for a “Foreign Trade Zone” status thru the U.S. Department of Commerce. Once a FTZ, they fall under federal management and the Customs and Border Patrol secure the premises. State and local laws still apply in the FTZ but local law enforcement must be called by the CBP to enter the zone. The local officials can request entry but it’s a jurisdictional issue depending upon the reason for the request. The U.S. Customs randomly inspect the imports and exports of goods. Foreign companies can also move into these zones and hire workers that have foreign visas.
There is a big push to get American businesses to export their goods. Then they will want “foreign trade zone” status. Not that we really manufacture much anymore because we exported entire industries, but the idea of turning a country’s economy into be exporting nation is the same kind structural adjustment program that was imposed on countries in South and Central America, the Caribbean and perhaps other countries as well. It provides caviar for a few and starves the many.

Alliance Texas is an example of a fully master planned community designed around an intermodal commerce zone / Foreign Trade Zone. It was the first such community and we don’t know if there are any more of them but we suspect there might be.
Here is a video about the Alliance development. This link was found on the Alliance website:
There is ALSO a big push to get “Foreign Direct Investment” into this country. That is the objective of Butch Otter’s Project 60. http://www.project60.idaho.gov
The foreign owned businesses that move to the U.S. can also apply for FTZ status and they can hire H1-B’s and other foreign workers on visas.
Idaho now has 2 new FOREIGN TRADE ZONES. One in Boundary County up north with a Chinese company, Hoku Materials, and one in Pocatello , with Hoku Materials the same Chinese company. There has been much concern over the Chinese moving into the U.S. ( buying homes, businesses, land and natural resources. You will find these article at the bottom of this e-mail.)
Foreign Trade Zones are clearly named. Other types of zones – in particular intermodal commerce zones, hubzones, enterprise zones, work-based development zones, economic development zones are more difficult because each state and each agency of government can give them different names to refer to the same thing. In addition, you can have different layers of zoning within the same zone. For example, you can have an intermodal commerce zone that is also an EB-5 Regional Zone, that is also a work-based learning zone that is also a subzone attached (logically) to a Foreign Trade Zone. That’s what it appears to be the game plan for “The CORE” in Meridian, Idaho which is just a couple of miles down the road (or maybe across the road depending on the FTZ boundaries at the Boise Airport) from the Boise Airport where the FTZ will be located.
This is Idaho Law, Title 70, Chapter 22 on Intermodal Commerce Zones which came about as a result of the Transportation Dept. ISTEA Legislation of 1991 which initiatied the superhighway corridor project with superhighway being defined as high tech highways.
And when you get through all of that, and you know that this is only part of the story – then you’ll understand why I called these zones, “Trojan Triangles”.

“China Demands Half of joint Ventures” — U.S. Companies forced to accept 50 – 50 agreements
—China leases oil rights in Texas—
Last October, China announced the state-owned Chinese energy giant CNOOC is buying a multi-million dollar stake in 600,000 acres of South Texas oil and gas fields.
Reporting the story, Monica Hatcher of the Houston Chronicle suggested China was “testing the political waters for further energy expansion into U.S. energy reserves.”
That China is buying U.S. oil and natural gas rights in the continental United States will strike millions of Americans as paradoxical, especially since the U.S. continues to be a net importer of approximately 60 percent of the oil consumed in the United States.
The Houston Chronicle reported China paid $2.2 billion for a one-third stake in Chesapeake Energy assets, with CNOCC laying a claim to a share of the energy resources in South Texas that have the potential to produce up to half a million barrels of oil per day.
The Houston Chronicle reported that as part of this deal, CNOCC agreed to pay approximately $1.1 billion for a share of Chesapeake’s assets in the Eagle Ford, described as a broad oil and gas formation that runs from the southwest of San Antonio to the Mexican border.
The Houston Chronicle also reported that the deal with China could create as many as 20,000 jobs in the United States, as well as provide the capital Chesapeake needs to increase its rig count in South Texas from 10 rigs to 42 rigs by the end of 2012.
Five years ago, the Bush administration blocked China on grounds of national security concerns from a $18.4 billion deal in which China planned to purchase California-based Unocal Corp.
Today, China has the cash, U.S. corporations need the business and the Obama administration has no plans to reverse the debtor relationship in which China has become one of the U.S. government’s needed lenders.
