Update on China Drilling for Oil in Iraq
- The first new oil field brought on line in Iraq in more than 20 years started pumping on June 21. But America is not getting any of Iraq's oil; Communist
China is getting it. China is expected to get 3,000,000 metric tons of crude oil a year. The China National Petroleum Corporation, owned by the Chinese government, signed a contract with the Iraqi government which gives China these oil rights for 23 years. Of course, China's money is really U.S. money that China has acquired by selling us cheap products. Washington Times, 6-28-11
- The United States waged an incredibly expensive war in Iraq, got rid of their cruel dictator, set up a peaceful democratic government, and rebuilt much of
the country's infrastructure. Iraq has the second largest supply of oil in the world, and the spoils of war should belong to us. We should take enough Iraqi oil to reimburse the United States for all the money we spent to liberate Iraq, and also give a million dollars to the family of every U.S. serviceman killed in the Iraq war.

Update on China Invading Idaho
- Idaho's Governor Butch Otter is supporting a plan to make Idaho the first Chinese-owned state in the U.S. The plan is called Project 60, but it is really 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 U.S. The original purpose of this program was to reduce U.S. unemployment. But surprise, surprise, the Chinese industries in Idaho will be staffed by Chinese workers imported to the U.S. Examiner, 5-31-11
- Top Idaho officials have been traveling to China and entertaining the Chinese to facilitate this plan. China is financing these enterprises with its sovereign wealth funds and government-owned enterprises. A Chinese firm is building a fertilizer plant in American Falls, Idaho. China bought 50 square miles of land south of Boise. Governor Otter has agreed to give China "hassle free" landing rights at Idaho's main airport. It's not just Idaho. China is buying a large chunk of real estate in Toledo,
Ohio, and oil and gas fields in Texas. Wall St. Journal, 5-24-10
Update on Using Taxpayers' Money to Hire Chinese
- 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.
It's a $7.2 billion project, one of the most expensive structures ever built. Chinese laborers are now doing the work to install more than two dozen giant steel modules, each with a roadbed segment about half the size of a football field.
- California officials said it hired the Chinese company, Zhenhua, because of "its large low-cost work force." The Chinese company put 3,000 employees to work on the project: steel-cutters, welders, polishers, and engineers. A typical Zhenhua 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.
- Chinese workers have been hired (instead of Americans) all over the U.S. In New York City, Chinese companies are renovating the subway system, refurbishing
the Alexander Hamilton Bridge over the Harlem River, and building a new Metro-North train platform near Yankee Stadium. New York Times, 6-25-11, 3-20-10
