Commentary: Is America Being Re-Colonized?

Most people have no idea of the extent to which the U.S. is being covertly re-colonized. Few Americans realize that calculated, planned, and already-initiated covert maneuvering by very determined and ruthless regimes is underway to gain control of U.S. resources. One major player in this is the Chinese, who want repayment of U.S. debt.
Many of you have been shocked to witness a near massacre in the Nevada desert as rancher Clive Bundy stood his ground against an army of government agents. His supposed crime was endangering tortoises. Sadly, his current ordeal foretells private property troubles for Americans. The reality is that Mr. Bundy sits on land that is mineral-rich, in addition to being selected to be a Solar Energy Zone controlled by the Chinese energy company, ENN.
Dr. Jim Garrow, a 43 year ex-CIA veteran, revealed that there are already Chinese soldiers on the Bundy Ranch and this information was provided to him by the Bundys themselves. Why are they in the U.S.? Partly because the Chinese have been promised control over U.S. underground and surface mineral resources in payment for U.S. debt to China.
Until recently, the U.S. followed the foreign policies of the Monroe Doctrine that forbade any foreign power from exerting influence in South, Central and North America, and all nations respected that doctrine as America vigorously imposed it.
However, President Obama's Secretary of State, John Kerry, told the Organization of American States in November, 2013, that the Monroe Doctrine was dead. This U.S. foreign policy has been imposed for 200 years, but no longer. U.S. power and influence is being decimated from within.
Even before 2013, China was playing on the growing weakness of American foreign policy, as when Jimmy Carter gave away the Panama Canal and scuttled all American bases in one of the most strategic locations of American defense.
It was only a decade ago that U.S. intelligence discovered the Chinese had taken control of both ends of the Panama Canal using a shell company called Hutchison Whampoa, which was wholly owned by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. It negotiated a 25- to 50-year lease for the Canal ports.
As the United States pulled out of its Panamanian bases and headed home, corrupt Panamanian officials were busy selling former U.S. property to the highest bidders, and Columbian drug lords, Russian mafia, and a horde of Chinese “immigrants” filled the void.
Since then, China has established relationships and bases in several South and Central American nations. Now geopolitically and militarily, China has literally surrounded the U.S. But that isn’t the end of it. The aggressive and ruthless determination of the Communist Chinese to dominate the U.S. is literally continuing right in our backyards.
In a May 25, 2014, article by Tom DeWeese titled, "Is the U.S. Being Colonized by Red China?" Mr. Deweese points out that the Communist regime of China has been targeting the United States of America cleverly and in an unprecedented way, seeking victory without a shot. He writes:
Chinese economic power is taking a bizarre and exceptionally dangerous turn right in local American communities. America, it appears, is on the brink of being colonized, because China is fast becoming the largest land owner in America.
This fact is mostly a result of a program through the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Service (USCIS), called Immigrant Investor Regional Centers. The program is known in Washington-speak as EB-5 Centers, so called because they represent a fifth category of employment-based immigration.
In reality, it’s a foreign investment program pretending to be a jobs program.
The way EB-5 works is that a foreign applicant invests money in an American business, community and property, claiming it creates jobs for Americans. If the enterprise continues and jobs are created, then the applicant can apply for permanent residence for his entire family.
There are now at least 480 EB-5 regional centers located in all 50 states. Many of these EB-5 projects are focusing on building housing developments. Others are focusing on buying up dairy farms, cattle ranches, meat-packing plants, and other sources of American food supplies. Still more are focused on getting a piece of American energy sources. Some of the centers are state run, others are private investment entities.
Beyond the Green Cards and residency, the immigrants running these projects can also expect government-sponsored benefits such as federal and state grants (i.e., taxpayer dollars) tax breaks or no sales taxes on supplies and materials they purchase to put the projects in place.
Since EB-5 Immigrant Investor Regional Centers are promoted as jobs programs and as a way to help financially strapped communities to bring in much needed money, the projects are growing across the nation with little concern expressed over the impact and end result in local communities.
Marriot and Hilton hotel chains have successfully worked EB-5 investment deals to build new hotels. Sony Pictures Entertainment and Warner Brothers have used EB-5 investments to fund film projects. While the program is open to immigrants from around world, the main interest appears to be from Communist China.
When considering this large influx of Chinese-funded projects, please understand that there are no private companies in China that are free to act on their own. China is a Communist regime. Nothing happens there without the express permission and backing of the Chinese government. Individuals posing as Chinese corporate leaders are part of that ruthless and corrupt government. They simply wouldn’t have that position if not approved by the Chinese government. For the most part, they are a front for covert infiltration of the U.S.
Forty-three percent of all corporate profits in China are produced by companies that the Chinese government controls outright. And all the rest of their companies are subservient to the power of the government and are very careful not to stray.
Individual Chinese citizens are not free to invest as they wish or to leave the country by their own decision. It takes a complicated process through the Chinese bureaucracy for that to happen. And that’s why massive Chinese investments in the EB-5 program are cause for alarm.
According to Mr. Deweese:
. . . Perhaps the most aggressive Chinese project is moving forward in Sullivan County, New York in the Catskill Mountains. This project is called China City. It will eventually cover over 2,000 acres, spread over the towns of Thompson and Mamakating. It will include a Chinese-themed gambling/entertainment complex, hotels, China-related businesses, a high school, a college and 1,000 residences.
According to the plan, every province of China will have an office there and the city will be full of symbols of Chinese culture.
When finished, it will be a $6 billion project, including a $65 million federal grant of taxpayer money along with the other incentives such as tax breaks on building supplies and property taxes.
At a recent public meeting, a local citizen asked the China City spokesman if Americans will be allowed to live there. The vague answer was, “Well, you can visit our amusement park and stay in our hotels."
This is a legitimate concern when dealing with the Communist Chinese government. While brilliant in its strategy, it is single-minded in its goal: supremacy. The United States has always stood in its way to achieve that supremacy. But the waning American economy and a U.S. government that no longer sees communism as a threat, makes us vulnerable to a power that knows exactly what it seeks.
Red flags should go up when locals are told they can’t live in China City. Why? Is this simply about an investment opportunity, or is China City, and other Chinese investments, actually to be Chinese colonies?
This type of colonizing is beginning to happen in all 50 states. There are many square miles in Idaho where the Chinese are building a major city. This is a prime example of what God predicted when He revealed the curses that will come upon the descendants of ancient Israel who refuse to obey His laws:
Deuteronomy 28:43-45 The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.
The Chinese are rising higher and higher, they are buying U.S. debt by the trillions of dollars, and gaining political power in local communities on upward. And despite having knowledge of this, American taxpayers are funding much of America’s re-colonization by the Chinese. But it is not only the Chinese; other nations are similarly infiltrating to get a piece of the pie.
The apostle Peter’s timeless admonishment tells us what we should be doing at this end time: "The end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers” (I Peter 4:7).
