hinese purchase of wind farms in Oregon blocked by President Obama
For the first time in 22 years, a U.S. president has stopped a foreign
business from locating in the United States. National security risks is the reason given for blocking four wind farm projects slated for northern
Oregon near a Navy installation used to base unmanned drones and electronic warfare planes on training missions, according to the Huffington Post.
Tensions between the U.S. and China have been increasing and this is bound to be another aggravation. Obama ordered Ralls Corporation which is owned
by Chinese nationals to relinquish its interest in the wind farms that it had purchased earlier this year.
The president has the final authority to prohibit foreign activities.....
I'm not sure where I stand on this one.
On the one hand I see why the President called them on it regarding possible national security issues. On the other, here we have some people
investing money into the economy and providing jobs.
Talk about Americans caught in the middle...
This is actually a good thing.
China has bought alot of stuff in the US. Texas, they bought 600,000 acres of oil and gas rights. 600,000 acres is a average size of a county in
They are setting up free trade zones all across the US, which give them diplomatic immunities on our soil in many regards.
They are buying up infrastructure slayer.
Are you a Marine?
If you are, let me put it another way.
Look at Israel, and what is happening in Palestine right.
Their reasoning for moving into Palestine continually is their "structures" there. There physical structures.
Same with China.
They will eventually probably bring troop over as well, to SECURE their interest.
Do we not have enough foreign troops on our soil?
I think so.
Considering that the entire US Military is mostly deployed, or at least the 250 thousand combat ready troops are. The only thing left in the US then,
while all of these foreign military personal are here, is pencil pushers within the Military, and logistics, etc.
Sounds like to me our Military and Government are to busy empire building, while we are being invaded at home.
You know, all of those wind farms as well, were said to be to produce cheap electricity to the US. But, mostly, the wind farms have been selling the
electricity to other countries, and states.
In Texas, some of the largest farms are selling their electricity out of state, when they said they were going to use the produce of electricity for
So what happens then when China buys them all out.
Will China sell us pricey electricity from our own shores?
This is no rock and hard place choice for Americans.
Just not the thinking Americans that is.
And the answer is NO.
Anymore forieng interests come here and set up shop, then its time to start running sabotage operations against them.
Because ones like myself are not being fooled any longer with these "carrots".
