5-22-12 - DREAM -  i don't know what city I was workikng in, but apparently all the people I was workikng with were Asian.

I thought I was managing an apartment building, but I saw no furniture in the massive storage space in the basement - only slabs of something that seemed pliable and not too heavy. 

I helped carry two slabs of whatever this was in storage that were about 4 feet by two inches by 8 inches wide.  I took a p;eek inside th cloth covering and it looked plastic, but could have been something like taffy.  I had nol sense of temperature in that space - I don't think it was cold.  The cloth coverings were a different color than what it covered though it was similar -  like a package that was covered in a honey colored cloth had something of a similar color, either darker or lighter inside.   There were also darker tans, and some greens and some blues as well.

The women whom I was helping were all newly pregnant, and the men could have been married to them though I don't know if they were.

In my office, I always knew by 4 pm whether someone was leaving a space, so I agreed to notify a woman named Barb in the same business as I was, when I knew for certain that they were leaving my building.

The storage rooms in our building were massive, and I noticed that some of the pallets had objects, also covered in cloth that were three feet by three feet, by three feet in size.  It seemed to be made of the same stuuff as the slabs were.





The Communist Party of China (CPC), also known as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), is the founding and ruling political party of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Although nominally it exists alongside the United Front,[1] a coalition of governing political parties, in practice, the CPC is the only party in the PRC,[2] maintaining a unitary government and centralizing the state, military, and media.[3] The legal power of the Communist Party is guaranteed by the national constitution.[3] The current party leader is Hu Jintao, who holds the title of General Secretary of the Communist Party of China.

The party was founded in July 1921 in Shanghai.[4][5][6] After a lengthy civil war, the CPC defeated its primary rival, the Kuomintang (KMT), and assumed full control of mainland China by 1949.[7] The Kuomintang retreated to the island of Taiwan, where it still remains to this day.

The party has fluctuated between periods of reformism and political conservatism throughout its history. Both before and after the founding of the PRC, the CPC's history is defined by various power struggles and ideological battles, including destructive socio-political movements such as the Cultural Revolution. At first a conventional member of the international Communist movement, the CPC broke with its counterpart in the Soviet Union over ideological differences in the 1960s. The Communist Party's ideology was redefined under Deng Xiaoping to incorporate principles of market economics, and the corresponding reforms enabled rapid and sustained economic growth

The CPC is the world's largest political party,[9] claiming over 80 million members[10] at the end of 2010 which constitutes about 6.0% of the total population of mainland China. The vast majority of military and civil officials are members of the Party.[11] Since 1978, the Communist Party has attempted to institutionalize transitions of power and consolidate its internal structure. The modern party stresses unity and avoids public conflict while practicing a pragmatic and open democratic centralism within the party structure.

The party's organizational structure was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution and rebuilt afterwards by Deng Xiaoping, who subsequently initiated "Socialism with Chinese characteristics" and brought all state apparatuses back under the rule of the CPC.

Theoretically, the party's highest body is the National Congress of the Communist Party of China, which meets at least once every five years. The primary organs of power in the Communist Party which is detailed in the party constitution include:

[edit] Organizations under the Central Committee

Other central organizations directly under the Party Central Committee include:

In addition, there are numerous commissions and leading groups. Usually those commissions and leading groups have jurisdiction on both Party and State apparatus, and include ranking leaders up to the President of the People's Republic of China and the Premier of the State Council. The most important of them are:

Every five years, the Communist Party of China holds a National Congress. The latest happened on October 19, 2007. Formally, the Congress serves two functions: to approve changes to the Party constitution regarding policy and to elect a Central Committee, about 300 strong. The Central Committee in turn elects the Politburo. In practice, positions within the Central Committee and Politburo are determined before a Party Congress, and the main purpose of the Congress is to announce the party policies and vision for the direction of China in the following few years.

The party's central focus of power is the Politburo Standing Committee. The process for selecting Standing Committee members, as well as Politburo members, occurs behind the scenes in a process parallel to the National Congress. The new power structure is announced obliquely through the positioning of portraits in the People's Daily, the official newspaper of the Party. The number of Standing Committee members varies and has tended to increase over time. The Committee was expanded to nine at the 16th Party National Congress in 2009.

There are two other key organs of political power in the People's Republic of China: the formal government and the People's Liberation Army. The Party's main bodies to oversee the PLA are the Central Military Commission and the General Political Department.

There are, in addition to decision-making roles, advisory committees, including the People's Political Consultative Conference. During the 1980s and 1990s there was a Central Advisory Commission established by Deng Xiaoping which consisted of senior retired leaders, but with their death this has been abolished since 1992.


Political theorists have identified two groupings within the Communist Party[13] leading to a structure which has been called "one party, two factions".[14] The first is the "elitist coalition" or Shanghai clique which contains mainly officials who have risen from the more prosperous provinces. The second is the "populist coalition", the core of which are the tuanpai, or the "Youth League faction" which consists mainly of officials who have risen from the rural interior, through the Communist Youth League. Minor informal groupings include the reformist Qinghua clique, and the derogatorily termed Crown Prince Party of officials benefiting from nepotism. The interaction between the two main factions is largely complementary with each faction possessing a particular expertise and both committed to the continued rule of the Communist Party and not allowing intra-party factional politics threaten party unity. It has been noted that party and government positions have been assigned to create a very careful balance between these two groupings.

Within his "one party, two factions" model, Li Chen has noted that one should avoid labelling these two groupings with simplistic ideological labels, and that these two groupings do not act in a zero-sum, winner take all fashion. Neither group has the ability or will to dominate the other completely.[15]

[edit] Membership

The party was small at first, but grew intermittently through the 1920s. Twelve voting delegates were seated at the 1st National Congress in 1921, as well as at the 2nd (in 1922), when they represented 195 party members. By 1923, the 420 members were represented by 30 delegates. The 1925 4th Congress had 20 delegates representing 994 members; then real growth kicked in. The 5th Congress (held in April–May 1927 as the KMT was cracking down on communists) comprised 80 voting delegates representing 57,968 members.

It was on October 3, 1928 6th Congress that the now-familiar ‘full’ and ‘alternate’ structure originated, with 84 and 34 delegates, respectively. Membership was estimated at 40,000. In 1945, the 7th Congress had 547 full and 208 alternate delegates representing 1.21 million members, a ratio of one representative per 1,600 members as compared to 1:725 in 1927.

After the Party defeated the Nationalists, participation at National Party Congresses became much less representative. Each of the 1026 full and 107 alternate members represented 9,470 party members (10.73 million in total) at the 1956 8th Congress. Subsequent congresses held the number of participants down despite membership growing to more than 60 million by 2000.[16]

The CPC has its origins in the May Fourth Movement of 1919, where radical political systems like anarchism and Communism gained traction among Chinese intellectuals.[17] Stalin opposed the Chinese Communist Party in Xinjiang because he wanted to expand Soviet influence in the province.[18] The CPC's ideologies have significantly evolved since its founding and establishing political power in 1949. Mao's revolution that founded the PRC was nominally based on Marxism-Leninism with a rural focus based on China's social situations at the time. During the 1960s and 1970s, the CPC experienced a significant ideological breakdown with the Communist Party of the Soviet Union under Nikita Khrushchev, and later, Leonid Brezhnev. Since then Mao's peasant revolutionary vision and so-called "continued revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat" stipulated that class enemies continued to exist even though the socialist revolution seemed to be complete, giving way to the Cultural Revolution. This fusion of ideas became known officially as "Mao Zedong Thought", or Maoism outside of China. It represented a powerful branch of communism that existed in opposition to the Soviet Union's "Marxist revisionism".

Following the death of Mao Zedong in 1976, however, the CPC under the leadership of Deng Xiaoping moved towards Socialism with Chinese characteristics and instituted Chinese economic reform.[19] In reversing some of Mao's "extreme-leftist" policies, Deng argued that a socialist country and the market economy model were not mutually exclusive. While asserting the political power of the Party itself, the change in policy generated significant economic growth.[20] The ideology itself, however, came into conflict on both sides of the spectrum with Maoists as well as progressive liberals, culminating with other social factors to cause the 1989 Tiananmen Square Protests. Deng's vision for economic success and a new socialist market model became entrenched in the Party constitution in 1997 as Deng Xiaoping Theory.

The "third generation" of leadership under Jiang Zemin, Zhu Rongji, and associates largely continued Deng's progressive economic vision while overseeing the re-emergence of Chinese nationalism in the 1990s. Nationalist sentiment has seemingly also evolved to become informally the part of the Party's guiding doctrine. As part of Jiang's nominal legacy, the CPC ratified the Three Represents into the 2003 revision of the Party Constitution as a "guiding ideology", encouraging the Party to represent "advanced productive forces, the progressive course of China's culture, and the fundamental interests of the people." There are various interpretations of the Three Represents. Most notably, the theory has legitimized the entry of private business owners and quasi-"bourgeoisie" elements into the party.

The insistent road of focusing almost exclusively on economic growth has led to a wide range of serious social problems. The CPC's "fourth generation" of leadership under Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao, after taking power in 2003, attempted reversing such a trend by bringing forth an integrated ideology that tackled both social and economic concerns. This new ideology was known as the creation of a Harmonious Society using the Scientific Development Concept.

The degree of power the Party had on the state has gradually decreased as economic liberalizations progressed. The evolution of CPC ideology has gone through a number of defining changes that it no longer bears much resemblance to its founding principles. Some believe that the large amount of economic liberalization starting from the late 1970s to present, indicates that the CPC has transitioned to endorse economic neoliberalism.[21][22][23][24] The CPC's current policies are fiercely rejected as capitalist by most communists, especially anti-revisionists, and by adherents of the Chinese New Left from within the PRC.

The Communist Party of China comprises a single-party state form of government; however, there are parties other than the CPC within China, which report to the United Front Department of the Communist Party of China and do not act as opposition or independent parties. Since the 1980s, as its commitment to Marxist ideology has appeared to wane, the party has begun to increasingly invoke Chinese nationalism as a legitimizing principle as opposed to the socialist construction for which the party was originally created. The change from socialism to nationalism has pleased the CPC's former enemy, the Kuomintang (KMT), which has warmed its relations with the CPC since 2003.[25]

Political ideology and stances

[edit] Regional corruption and reform

The leaders of the Communist Party of China realize that there are serious problems with political corruption within China and with maintaining the trust of the Chinese people because of it. However, attempts made in closed-door sessions at the Fourth Plenary Session of the 17th Communist Party of China's Central Committee in September 2009 to grapple with these problems produced inconclusive results, although a directive which requires disclosure of investments and property holdings by party and governmental officials was passed.[26]


Trotskyists argue that the party was doomed to its present character, that of petty-bourgeois nationalism in the 1920s, because of the near-annihilation of the workers' movement in the KMT betrayal of 1927, which was made possible by Stalin's order that the Communists join with the KMT in a centrist coalition, effectively disarming it, which opportunity the KMT swiftly exploited to defeat the communist revolution.[27] This slaughter forced the tiny surviving Party to switch from a workers' union- to a peasant, guerilla-based organization, and to seek the aid of the most heterodox sources: from "patriotic capitalists" to the dreaded KMT itself, with which it openly sought to participate in a coalition government, even after the Japanese general surrender in 1945.[28] Chinese Trotskyists from Chen Duxiu onward have called for a political revolution against what they see as an opportunist, capitalist leadership of the CPC.

Kuomintang party. They viewed the Chinese revolution in different terms than the Communists, claiming that China already went past its feudal stage and in a stagnation period rather than in another mode of production. These Marxists in the Kuomintang opposed the Chinese communist party ideology.[29]

Maoists and other 'anti-revisionists' viciously attack the changes after Mao Zedong's death, calling them the precise "capitalist road" Mao had pledged to fight during the early existence of the PRC. They do not hold any allegiance to the CPC. An example of a well-known group, until recently armed, that looks to Mao's principles is the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) who the current CPC has publicly opposed. Also, some Maoist groupings attack even some of the shifts and changes that occurred while Mao was still alive and in leadership, like his 1972 welcoming of Richard Nixon (see lesser evil for more on this event). The Chinese New Left, which encompasses these Maoists and other postmodernists is a current within China that seeks to "revert China to the socialist road" – i.e., to return China to the socialist system that existed before Deng Xiaoping's reforms.

Some of the opponents of the Party within the Chinese democracy movement have tended not to argue that a strong Chinese state is inherently bad, but rather that the Communist leadership is corrupt.[clarification needed] The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 represented a controversial point in criticism of the Chinese Communist Party by Chinese students within China.[30]

Another school of thought argues that the worst of the abuses took place decades ago, and that the current leaders were not only unconnected with them, but were actually victims of that era. They have also argued that, while the modern Communist Party may be flawed, it is comparatively better than previous regimes, with respect to improving the general standard of living, than any other government that has governed China in the past century and can be seen in a more favourable light compared with most governments of the developing nations. As a result, the CPC has recently taken sweeping measures to regain support from the countryside, with limited success.

In addition, some scholars contend that China has never operated under a decentralized democratic regime in its several thousand years of history, and therefore it can be argued that the present political structure, albeit not up to Western moral or political standards, is the best possible option when compared to the alternatives. A sudden transition to democracy, these experts contend, would result in the economic and political upheaval that occurred in the Soviet Union in the late 1980s, and that by focusing on economic growth, China is setting the stage for a more gradual but sustainable transition to a more politically liberal system. This group sees mainland China as being similar to Franco's Spain in the 1960s, and South Korea during the 1970s when South Korea was run by corrupt, authoritarian regimes. This school of thought also brings together some unlikely political allies. Not only do most intellectuals within the Chinese government follow this school of thinking, but it is also the common belief held amongst pro-free trade liberals in the West.

Many observers from both within and outside of China have argued that the CPC has taken gradual steps towards democracy and transparency, hence arguing that it is best to give it time and room to evolve into a better government that is more responsive to its people rather than forcing an abrupt change with all the deleterious effects such a loss of stability might entail.[31] However, other observers (like Minxin Pei) question whether these steps are genuine efforts towards democratic reform or disingenuous measures by the CPC to retain power.[32]

 Relationship with competing ideologies


The CPC is officially atheist, and prohibits party members from holding religious beliefs (though this ban is, in many cases, unenforceable).

The Party's United Front Work Department coordinates with the State Administration for Religious Affairs to manage the country's five officially sanctioned religions. Unregistered religious groups face varying degrees of suppression under the Communist Party.

Historical leaders

Between 1921 and 1943 the Communist Party of China was headed by the General Secretary:

In 1943 the position of Chairman of the Communist Party of China was created.

In 1982, the post of Chairman was abolished, and the General Secretary, at this time held by the same man as the post of Chairman, once again became the supreme office of the Party.

[edit] Funding

Though the CPC charges a limited due on its members for its expenditure, its total amount would be insignificant for the continued operation of this hegemony. The actual ratio of membership dues among the total amount is less than 1/11. While the budget constitutes of limited amount of donations and business operations owned by the party, its majority comes from the grant of national treasury,[33] the same way that supports the other 8 subordinative registered parties, which making a bizarre exception among modern political parties. However, unlike the governmental departments, there is not even a de jure procedure for legal supervision of such grants as for now. Proposals for reformation has since been put aside untouched.

Histchina to build city in utah


Utah aims to build, develop business ties with China

> China's Qinghai Governor Luo Huining, left, and Utah Governor Gary Herbert meet before signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing ceremony in the Gold Room at the Utah State Capitol Wednesday, July 13, 2011, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Tom Smart, Deseret News



Thanks to the trillions of dollars that the Chinese have made flooding our shores with cheap products, China is now in a position of tremendous economic power. So what is China going to do with all of that money? One thing that they have decided to do is to buy up pieces of the United States and set up “special economic zones” inside our country from which they can continue to extend their economic domination. One of these “special economic zones” would be just south of Boise, Idaho and the Idaho government is eager to give it to them. China National Machinery Industry Corporation (Sinomach for short) plans to construct a “technology zone” south of Boise Airport which would ultimately be up to 50 square miles in size. The Chinese Communist Party is the majority owner of Sinomach, so the 10,000 to 30,000 acre “self-sustaining city” that is being planned would essentially belong to the Chinese government. The planned “self-sustaining city” in Idaho would include manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers and large numbers of homes for Chinese workers. Basically it would be a slice of communist China dropped right into the middle of the United States.

According to the Idaho Statesman, the idea would be to build a self-contained city with all services included. It would be modeled after the “special economic zones” that currently exist in China.

Perhaps the most famous of these “special economic zones” is Shenzhen. Back in the 1970s, Shenzhen was just a very small fishing village. Today it is a sprawling metropolis of over 14 million people.

If the Chinese have their way, we will soon be seeing these “special economic zones” pop up all over the United States.

So exactly who is “Sinomach”?

The following description of the company comes directly from the website of Sinomach:

With approval of the State Council, China National Machinery Industry Corporation (SINOMACH) was established in January 1997. SINO-MACH is a large scale, state-owned enterprise group under the supervision of the State Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.

As you can see, Sinomach is basically an arm of the Chinese government.

The borrower is always the servant of the lender, and now China is buying up America.

The reality is that Sinomach is not looking only at Idaho. Sinomach is in discussions to develop “special economic zones” all over the United States.

Sinomach has recently dispatched delegations to Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania to explore the possibility of establishing “special economic zones” in those states.

Will such “self-contained communities” soon start appearing from coast to coast?

According to Dr. Jerome Corsi, the U.S. government has already set up 257 “foreign trade zones” across America. These “foreign trade zones” will apparently be given “special U.S. customs treatment” and will be used to promote global free trade:

“The FTZs tend to be located near airports, with easy access into the continental NAFTA and WTO multi-modal transportation systems being created to move free-trade goods cheaply, quickly and efficiently throughout the continent of North America.”

So what do our politicians think about all of this?

Most of them are greatly in favor of it.

“Idaho’s the last state that should say we don’t want to do business with Asia,” Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little said last year. “Asia’s where the money is.”

So will all of this “foreign investment” really bring jobs back to the American people?

Perhaps a few, but the truth is that these “special economic zones” that the Chinese are setting up are designed to be self-contained communist Chinese communities. Some Americans will likely be employed in these areas, but not nearly as many as our politicians would have you to believe.

In addition, these “special economic zones” represent a massive national security threat. The communist Chinese could potentially be able to bring in and store massive amounts of military equipment virtually undetected.

In the days of the Cold War, we would have never dreamed of giving the Russians a 50 square mile city in the middle of Idaho.

But today we have become convinced that the communist Chinese want to be our great friends.

The following quote originally appeared in the Idaho Statesman, but has since apparently been taken down:

“The Chinese are looking for a beachhead in the United States,” said Idaho Commerce Secretary Don Dietrich. “Idaho is ready to give them one.”


If relations between the U.S. and China go south someday, we will deeply regret giving China so many open doors.

The truth is that you can never fully trust the communist Chinese. Their top military officers talk about a coming conflict with the United States all the time. China is extremely interested in North America. In fact, the Chinese and the Mexicans have even been holding talks on military cooperation.

But even if you don’t consider the communist Chinese to be a military threat, you should be deeply concerned about the economic implications of what is happening.

Today, tens of millions of Americans are wondering why the economy is so bad.

Well, there are a lot of reasons, but the fact that we have sent China thousands of our factories, millions of our jobs and trillions of dollars of our national wealth is a major contributing factor.

If you do not know the truth about how badly the Chinese economy is wiping the floor with the Americen economy then you need to read this article: “40 Signs The Chinese Economy Is Beating The Living Daylights Out Of The U.S. Economy“.

Beautiful new infrastructure is going up all over China today, and meanwhile many of our once great manufacturing cities are turning into rotted-out war zones.

China would not be what they are today if we had insisted that they abandon the communist system and respect basic human rights before we ever opened up trade with them.

But that did not happen. Instead we enthusiastically welcomed China into the WTO and we let the predatory Chinese system run wild.

In 2010, China had a “current account balance” of over 272 billion dollars, which was the largest in the world.

In 2010, the United States had a “current account balance” of negative 561 billion dollars. According to the CIA world factbook, that put us in last place in the entire world. In fact, our negative current account balance was more than 9 times larger than anyone else in the world. If you go check out this chart it will give you a really good idea of how nightmarish our trade situation has become.

The world is changing and nothing is ever going to be the same again.

Just ask the residents of Boise, Idaho – they are about to have a 50 square mile self-contained communist Chinese city plopped right into their backyard.

        I have worked in China over 18years , the Chinese believe to build industry to create jobs and democracy via economic stability. I do not believe for a moment they will send there people here for creating a job force in any area of US development . I encourage all to go to china they have made incredible progress to take care of their billions of people. They are now in the final stages of 5 years of 12 five year plans. The countrysides will be developed , apartment buildings are being built , schools are opening no person will live in poverty in China is their plan. Note this country has been around 5000 years so their is quite a few more people in their population , based on that fact have patients and do not judge . The people in China love their country and would never want to leave ….China is peaceful they will never fire the first shot although they will not allow another to be fired . Truth From My experience and knowledge !

          You may have experience but lack knowledge. China commits acts of espionage against the U.S. every single day from China. You really believe that won’t increase once you give them 50 miles of territory inside the U.S.? How do you know they won’t sneak in military equipment? Only a lib in the U.S. would be so stupid to agree to this and back this plan.

          Barbara, can you really be that naive? Every nation has people who are “peaceful”, it’s the intentions of the leaders who govern those people that are of great concern. Must we continue to judge in error the actions of certain groups, religions or countries in order to appear non-judgmental, kind, or without bigotry? Seriously? And how are the comments you read hateful? You appear to have a great sense of loyalty and compassion toward the Chinese people and wholeheartedly agree with the way they are governed. We are hateful because we don’t agree? I’m tired of the ‘hate’ label that is so quickly handed out because not everybody thinks according to certain standards. The Chinese people may be wonderful, but their leaders…not so much.

        I have read all the comments ….I am truly saddened by the hateful remarks I have read. Let me remind all of you it was the American consumer and cooperations that forced our US jobs overseas!Bigger profits! I am a product developer , please note all of you that when making any product their is what is called a specification sheet developed by the company who is going off shore to manufacturer. I don’t understand how the Chinese or anyone else can be blamed for making inferior products when the manufacturer is only following the directions of the customer. As for all this hate…I do not believe any of you would express any negative if you all could see how happy the people are and how much they love their country. Remember the media only gives one snap shoot!The Chinese people have only tried to be like us , so all be careful when pointing the finger. A Chinese official once said to me in China, ” we will never fire the first shot at anyone or any country although if someone fires a shot at us it will be the last shot fired”. Don’t blame the people or the government , their is no homeless , no hungry, no unemployments, people retire at 50 years old, therefore no day cares! No nursing homes.I find it amazing that a country that has over 1.8 billion people does not have the problems we in the USA are facing everyday .. And please note maybe we could get things done in this country if we didn’t have some many cooks in the soup.I would truly like to invite anyone reading this to take a walk with me and the Chinese people, rather then read media and feed into propaganda! All of you take a look at the products in your homes most made in China. Don’t blame the Chinese blame the company’s that closed there doors on their workers and moved off shore for higher profits. This is One World , we are all humans, I can assure you all the people of China have no desire to come to work in America. Before everyone goes crazy over thinking they will send their people can anyone confirm that they will send their people here? I would love to see evidence of this. The only secure jobs in USA that are thriving are military suppliers, isn’t their a better way to create jobs. Officials in China also told me “make jobs not war this will create stable economy! I love my country but I also love this world. Please all of you if their is a heaven do anyone of you want to have to explain your hate at the pearly gates???

          :cry: Some of what you say is worthy of our consideration, but the American consumer is not to blame for what the criminals who control our economy have done. We now have a “Patriot Act,” the obvious intent of which is to kill off patriots. Big companies have used our “social overhead capital:” – our roads, fire protection, police protection, our once-secure borders and other assets paid for by the people to start their businesses. In exchange for our investment, we should be entitled to jobs, but the “insiders” have decided to move our jobs offshore, leaving no factories at home while We the People are expected to buy their products, paying high prices as if they were manufactured here. I’m glad some Chinese are prospering, but it is time for them to consume their own products and it is high time for us to demand the right to jobs here. It is also high time for each state to pass a constitutional amendment limiting the right to own real estate to people who are qualified to run for President of the United States. That would solve a lot of problems.

      [b]you do NOT want a city full of chinese.[/b] chinese are bad news. nope nope nope. keep them out. think of them as a plague and you won’t be far from the truth.

      building a 50 square mile city just for themselves sounds ridiculous, but you still don’t want the ridiculous to happen either. if you’re in Idaho, and it comes around that your politicians are considering such a thing, do everything you can to not allow that from happening.

      if you value your American way of life, and I’m sure you do, you won’t want to have anything to do with the chinese. each one would amount to a scab on your community, and the more there are, the more chinese they are, and the more scab-like they are. worse yet, you would have to deal with them in business, interact with them in your community, call one neighbor, where before there was an American there is now an unpleasant, ugly, greedy, unethical, treacherous, lying, dirty, inhuman scab. your community values will go down accordingly, simply due to the fact that such creatures live among you, and then even worse yet, they will end up being involved in the politics of your community, making you cooperate with them, accede to them, you actually find yourself forced to call them ‘friend’ and ‘neighbor’ etc. when you would rather puke.

      they do not belong here and they would weasel their way into everything. it’s not about some biological thing called race, it is about culture. they are the total opposite of American values, not like the Mexicans, for example, who aren’t as far from it, if you didn’t like Mexicans for some reason. the chinese are the opposite. they would be destroyers of American culture where you are at, and they don’t care about you either, in fact they would like to take what they can for themselves. KEEP THEM OUT.

The people of China are not predatory, they simply live under a government which forces economic prowess on them through their forced labor. Chinese people are bred to work harder and live with less than Americans, if anything they would be a welcome addition to our society.

        If you took the time to read any chinese literature you would realize how similar their cultures and values are to ours, but your response makes you look like an ignorant imbecile.

          The Chinese people may be good, decent folks. I’m sure at least some of them are. The Chinese government, on the other hand, is the most under-handed form of government on the face of planet Earth. We don’t need it in America!! The Socialist left that Obama and his cohorts are trying, desperately, to inflict upon us is a clost step in that direction. …I’m old enough to remember being taught, in school, about the gory, horrendous things that were done to people in the German Communist POW camps in WW1…about their total dictatorship form of government, etc. Unfortunately, youth are no longer taught these important truths. Our government has been headed in that direction for decades, and Obama just stepped on the “Full Speed Ahead!” button, to get us there. We are helping their cause, unconsciously, perhaps, each time we purchase something tagged, “made in China”.

      This article is part of the war-propaganda against China. First you demonize the threat, turning it into a threat for all, and then destroy it. China is completely surrounded with American military bases. The conditions for World War III have been set in place

      • Ann W United States says:

        Give me a break!!! China is “surrounded” by the US military bases?! Yes, we’re in the places where WWII (Japan) and the Korean WAr (Korea) happened. And we’re still there…..and have been for decades. Have we “taken” over their country, or their governments? God forbid, they might be a democratic government now that we’ve gotten involved!! I’m sorry, but I can’t believe that the US is taking over the Japanese and Korean governments…..like I said before, God Forbid that they might choose to have a democratic government like we do! But has that been bad for their governments?? Give me a break! I can use myself as an example…..I’m 50 years old this past year……since I could drive (aged 18), I have had a Toyota as my car! I *prefer* a Japanese car! Why?? Because in my experience, the Japanese make a better vehicle! It doesn’t matter *who* is making their cars…..a lot of Toyotas are now made in the US or Canada!! (my Toyota Matrix was made in Ontario, Canada, and is the *absolute* best car that I have **ever** owned…..I’ve owned this car since 2004…the most money I’ve spent on it is new tires!). And I’ve read that their are Toyota plants in Kentucky and other US states (besides Canada). So if Americans are “employed” at a good-paying job, do I care if their employer is a Japanese company, or a Detroit (American) company? I don’t care which *big* company makes the profits (American or Japanese)! My concern is the average American person……whether they’re paid by an American company or a Japanese company, why should I care??! !!!

      People, if you are sooooo concerned about that silent Chinese “invasion”, why don’t you just reduce spending trillions of dollars for the army ? Are you so stupid ? Why are you wondering how come that your government goes broken, that your deficit goes crazy, all while you spend all what you (even almost don’t) have (anymore), just for playing the”heroes” of that planet ? That is very childish, in my opinion … National security can be set with less than what you spend, and soon America will look at the fatality that even that stupid Hitler could not see coming to this way : preparing for global domination, fighting all wars all around him – which was the most sure recipe for his disaster ….

      I am European and we here not live in “debts”, we are not so poor as to always ask banks to give us money, because we OWN what we have and use, opposite to you, that all are broke and far too way in debt …. We just feel pity for you … American dream (or way of life) seems to be a lazy way, of just printing endlessly money for imports, and just exporting money for the oil… Are you serious ? If you want jobs, then go and produce cheaper products than the small Chinese people whom you blame, or make better products. Stop buying best world products (German ones), stop visiting most beautiful countries (European ones), keep your money so that you’ll be happier. Because this is a free world :) Or … maybe the freedom already started to bother you ?

      This is a fact. I live in Idaho and it has been in the local newspapers the past 2 or 3 weeks, The Idaho Statesman had an article as well as The Clearwater Progress. According to what I can find, apparently Gov Butch Otter has agreed to sell to the Chinese and allow them to make a 50 sq mile “self sustaining” city outside of Boise and another in the works for near Twin Falls, ID. He said it will be good for the state to have better trade with China. I can’t see how allowing Communist China to build and maintain “free trade zones” in America would, in any way, help our economy! They will bring their own people to work and live in these zones. They will not be under US LAWS, having their own police, etc. You all still want the GOP to be in power? I sure don’t.

        And most of the US is relying on those of you in Idaho (and other “real” American states) to “put their foot down” against the anti-American agenda! If you’re all going the wrong way, what hope do we have? :(

          Ann, do you have any idea how few people we have in Idaho who know or care about this? in my county (Kootenai) the unemployment is rampant, we don’t have a welfare system so people are literally unable to care for their basic needs. They go to Spokane (Washington, next state over) so they can split up as a family and the dad goes to a mens’ shelter and the wives and kids have to go to a separate womens’ and kids’ shelter. Now does that sound fair to you? Does it sound like the people in this state have any control whatsoever?? We can put as many feet down as we have and it won’t make a bit of difference how this turns out.

      a zone like this would help to demonstrate to all just how productive a economic free zone could be. It would force the US govt. to stop all the crazy regs they put on american industry.

      I just LOVE the false misleading reporting here.

      JAPAN has been doing this for YEARS in the US. Honda @ MArysville OH is such a FTZ place.

      although Japan is not such an ENEMY.

      TRAITORS in the US at work.

      Makes no sense. How can they create a Chinese Style Free Trade Zone in America? What does “Free” mean? hahaha. theres Free Trade Zones all over China now. Theres NOTHING FREE about them. They operate pretty much the same way all countries do everywhere. Send something out, pay some fees. Import something in, pay even more fees.
      what a joke!

      Who has the right to give away this so called new found land of the Indian Nations to China? This land still belongs to the Indian people. It was never given or sold to anyone, only taken by force. There has been to many guest who have taken up rights of ownership with phoney documents that are no better than the paper money being used to enforce capitalism. Take a look at what is going on in other lands around the globe. I think you will see for yourself the same things are happening created by the same people who are at the top offices of banking and power.

        well said, Thunder Cloud…what happened to our people shouldn’t be wished on any other, but interesting to see how upsetting it is to the people, just think how we felt in our times…but then they called it “Manifest Destiny”. Maybe the Chinese have the same mindset. We fought and ultimately lost. I hope it doesn’t happen here again…just think how upsetting it would be to have your English-speaking kids forced to attend a Chinese speaking school, and be punished for getting caught speaking English. Time to reflec

      The Chinese, like the Americans, have a Government that is evil and needs to be replaced by the PEOPLE !

      US should take the lead and say: China we don’t need you…We are going to build our own cities for the Mexicans immigrants.

      Years ago the chinese played a huge part in building the rails road over the sierras.The hardest working of all.They are still the hardest working today.Union workers see them as a threat.If you dont like china stay out of Walmart and the like.good luck with your shopping.

    27. LibertyTUnited States says:

      I don’t know what to think. We could show the Chinese that we are people they would want as neighbors and friends. Show them how the real people are good and kind and perhaps we can influence them to wanting to be a part of America and it’s culture. What else can we do? Let us try to rise above the Elites and their plans for world domination. The scum have the plan in the works so We the People must make a positive out of a negative.

      The ones that I blame in the US are the unions. They have too much power. No wonder US corporations have been relocating to other countries and thus we have massive unemployment in the US. Along with massive regulations its no wonder companies to stay competitive look overseas. It is also the fault of the Demopublicans for their big government fascism and of course crony capitalism and how the government protects some corporations from any competition.

      About that proposed 50 sq. mi. Chinese City in Idaho; it may not happen at all

      Susoni started a thread on this project yesterday ( http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=207144 ), but I thought the following info needed to be bumped up front:

      The latest in the Idaho Statesman is that there has been no follow up by the Chinese on this "Special Economic Zone" project. It seems that it may not happen at all. Perhaps the conspiracy-site articles on it scared them away:

      Boise officials have not had follow-up from Chinese company

      The original Idaho Statesman article on the project last December:






      The Alex Jones infowars article which surmises that it would be staffed entirely by Chinese workers, which I haven't found independent confirmation of:


      We must remember that the Chinese have a penchant for grandiose projects that go nowhere, like the huge nearly empty "ghost city" they've built on the Mongolian border.

      When I was touring China with my wife about 10 years ago, we were planning to stay in an elaborate resort hotel in the countryside, but when we got there it was basically deserted except for about 3 staff who were all going to go home at 5pm, leaving us there alone all night; so we had to scrabble to find somewhere else to stay.

      There is a lot of this going on in China. In the cities, especially the less prominent cities, every time a new politician comes in, he tears down all the fancy half-empty buildings put up by the previous administration and builds new ones. The have such a need to spend their piles money that they are constantly casting about for new pie-in-the-sky projects to throw cash into. I think the Idaho thing may have been a symptom of that.
