Also the "foreclosure" you speak of with the government is called downsizing and defense cuts. And they're doing a lot of it.

Not so fast. The chart may or may not have been doctored. It's up in the air at the moment.

I still go by the original post where the link was sourced in the footnote. As I stated the website has updated their charts and I'm still trying to find an archived image.

You guys have a heavy case of denial and confirmation bias.

Foreign Trade Zone or Free Trade Zones or Economic Transport Zones exist in countries all over the world. They are run and controlled by the local nation. They were started in the US in 1934 and have been operation for 75 years. They are US territory and of course under US law, US companies operate in them as well both in the US and around the world. A US company in a Chinese zone does not own the territory any more than a Chinese company in the a US zone. If you want to set up shop this is how you start Becoming a FTZ operator
Notice this

Neither the Grantee, FTZ No. 79 Board, nor Port Tampa Bay are responsible for determining whether your proposed operations are compliant with relevant FTZ, CBP, or any other state and/or federal agency’s laws and regulations.


And? We also have military installations and embassies all around the world securing our own enterprise too. What makes you think foreign countries won't do the same to us?

You said foreclosure , I just pointed out it is not relavent to US government debt.
Cut backs in government spending are not caused by overseas debt (except in that politicians will use it as an excuse).

You seriously think that they build those embassies and bases on Foreign Trade Zones? All of those bases are preexisting bases used by the host nation, and are commanded by a member of that nation's military. They were put there by treaty with that nation.

Foreign trade zones mean foreign countries own American soil. This has always been the case but do you not remember the debt we're in? We can never pay back our investors so all the countries we're indebted too don't want the crippling US dollar anymore.

Did you also forget that most of the manufacturing jobs are overseas now and foreign countries don't want primarily consumer-based American business? I can almost bet that the Chinese are about to takeover.

Canadians are also large investors in the U.S. property market as a whole. An NAR report from earlier this year found Canadians remain the largest foreign investors in U.S. real estate overall, accounting for 19 per cent of sales. But that’s actually doen from 23 per cent, typically, in recent years.

But Chinese buyers are the fastest-growing group in the U.S. residential market, nearly doubling their share, to 16 per cent, over the past five years.


Yep. Canadians were trying to take over Florida, but the Chinese have more money these days

You mean the military training with foreign troops, like they've been doing since 1947? We still aren't under Martial Law.

We're getting close to it. Watch the video.

Shows troops doing live training exercises in some neighborhoods.

No training like this is authorized on the population or on civillian property. That's what bases are used for.

This is a totally different ball game.

Actually there's nothing preventing them from training in cities or neighborhoods. They're to limit the disruption, and coordinate with civilian authorities, but nothing prevents them from training on civilian property at any time.

If this was really happening they will be sad when they meet our Green Berets Navy SEALS and well just the armed average citizen Joe.

Forget the police forces they are just gravy.

Because we have been doing this for 75 years and guess what? Nothing. What your saying does not even make sense. Nations can not apply to be in FTZ companies do. The very first FTZ was in Ireland and some how they like almost every nation on Earth that has them some how seem to be doing just fine.

I just do not see why you would think foreign troops would feel the need to show and secure a couple warehouses and what good would they be, and why would Customs let them in? And why now after 75 years? Simple logic should tell you this is beyond silly.

We have been doing that since... well since the military started training. Training just on bases misses out on tons of real world training. Again much like FTZ this is nothing new and been going on much longer than any of us have been alive.

Actually there are constitutional rights that prohibit it. And for the millionth time this is proof that they're preparing for mass civil unrest.

Then prove it. Because military training is not limited to military bases or operating areas. They are allowed to train wherever they need to train, as long as it's coordinated with local authorities.

But for some reason you are unable to tell us this exact "constitutional right" that actually prohibit it!

No, it is just proof you know nothing at all about military training. And a video from 2013, none of the claims in that video have happened, 3 years later....
