The Chinese Want To Spend Billions Constructing A 600 Acre “China City” In New York State
The Chinese have made trillions of dollars flooding our shores with super cheap products, and now they are using some of that money to buy land and property all over America. For example, there is now a proposal to construct a multibillion dollar “China City” that would span approximately 600 acres in a remote area of New York state. This “China City” (that is actually what it would be called) would be located on Yankee Lake in Sullivan County, New York. The plans anticipate large numbers of Chinese businesses, plenty of homes for Chinese immigrants, a Chinese high school, a college, a casino and even a theme park. And the first 600 acres is only for “phase one” of the plan. Ultimately, the goal is for “China City” to cover more than 2,000 acres. Those promoting this plan say that it will be a great way for New Yorkers to learn to appreciate Chinese culture.
So should we be concerned that the Chinese want to place a little slice of communist China right in the heart of New York state?
Should we really be allowing other nations (especially ones that publish maps showing what will happen when they nuke us) to be setting up self-sustaining communities inside our own country that have no intention of integrating into the wider culture?
David North of the Center for Immigration Studies is one of those that is sounding the alarm over this project. According to him, the eventual goal of the “China City” project is to essentially take over two small towns and cover a total of more than 2,000 acres…
The first version of the plan to emerge was a grandiose one. It would cover more than 2,000 acres (more than three square miles) spread over the towns of Mamakating and Thompson. It would include a Chinese theme park, a city full of China-related businesses, a high school, a college, and 1,000 residences. Every province in China would have an office there and the place would be replete with symbols of Chinese culture. For more on these plans see CCOA’s website, festooned with golden dragons and text in both Mandarin and English. When finished it would be a $6 billion project, its backers say.
But for now, the first phase is only going to cover about 600 acres…
A revised version of the initial offering was proposed later; this would, as a modest start to the broader project, include a college, an urban area, some family housing, and lots of student housing; it would cover less than 600 acres and would all be in the town of Thompson, whose officials, a local lawyer tells me, are somewhat less hostile to the plan than those in Mamakating.
And this is not the first time that this kind of thing has been proposed. As I reported last year, a different Chinese group has purchased 200 acres of land in a rural area of Michigan and hopes to create a “China City” out there…
A Chinese group known as “Sino-Michigan Properties LLC” has bought up 200 acres of land near the town of Milan, Michigan. Their plan is to construct a “China City” with artificial lakes, a Chinese cultural center and hundreds of housing units for Chinese citizens. Essentially, it would be a little slice of communist China dropped right into the heartland of America. This “China City” would be located about 40 minutes from both Detroit and Toledo, and it would be marketed to Chinese business people that want to start businesses in the United States.

Most of the time, when the Chinese gobble up our properties they do not do it in such large chunks. But make no mistake – they are voraciously buying up real estate right now. In fact, CNN recently published an article about the cities where they are the most active…
New York and Los Angeles top the list of U.S. cities they are most interested in, according to Juwai.com, a website where Chinese buyers browse global real estate listings.
More surprisingly, Philadelphia and Detroit come in at No. 3 and No. 4.
The top 10 list is rounded out by Houston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Atlanta, San Diego and Memphis.
Chinese buyers purchased $8.2 billion worth of U.S. property in 2012, according to Juwai.
It has been estimated that the Chinese are now buying one out of every ten homes sold in the state of California. And this buying spree actually appears to be accelerating. The following is a brief excerpt from a recent CNBC article entitled “Chinese buying up California housing“…
National Security Nightmare: China Planning Communist Cities in the US
“It’s a perfect storm of problems.”
– David North, Center for Immigration Studies
Chinese investors – Chinese investors must be members of the Chinese Communist party – want to build ‘China City’ in Thompson, New York in the Catskills.
This won’t be Chinatown. This will be a 600-acre mini China in America which will include housing, a college with residences, and all sorts of stores and other structures. It will be self-sufficient and will basically be a mini-Chinese Communist enclave right here in the United States.
Every province in China will have an office in China City. Foreign investors funding it would be given green cards because of a visa program that entices foreign investment with green cards as carrots.
If times were normal, people would realize this raises very serious national security issues. There are also financial issues.
Supposedly, 20% of the funding would come from US taxpayers!
It will need federal, state, and local approval.
Why do the Chinese bother to hack our government agencies when they can just form their own cities right here in the States to spy and disrupt?
Sullivan County, where this would be built, is poor and the proponents of the plan are willing to sell out to Chinese Communists for some possible financial and cultural improvements.
The people seem to be under the delusion that theses Chinese Communists are special because they are influential, wealthy and educated. Every one in China who meets those qualifications and every investor from China is a member of the Chinese Communist Party and works for the Chinese government.
The architectural-engineering firm that would handle this is a ‘green’ firm. The ‘green’ industry is filled with corruption. There is big money being made off taxpayer’s backs.

We have reported about China buying up acreage in the US to establish mini-commie enclaves for two years.
Back in September 2011, I wrote about the Chinese developments being planned in the United States which are, they say, to invest in this country and provide jobs for our union workers instead of sending jobs to China. We are living in a global world and I understand that.
What I don’t understand is why we have to do this with companies run by the Chinese Communist Party or closely connected to them? Chinese communists make very poor allies and they are not our friends. They hack our power grids and our secret service facilities while stealing our technology to say nothing of the games they play with the currency. They constantly saber-rattle.
The other thing I don’t like about Chinese companies is that they live off bribes and favors – they are communists after all.
Don’t even get me started on their human rights abuses, currency manipulation, cyber warfare, theft of property rights, and totalitarian government rules, ideas which they bring with them.
Kathy Lee Giffords was demonized over her company purchasing goods from Honduras some years back because they used sweatshops when she had no knowledge of the situation. Meanwhile, China is nothing but one big sweatshop.
Remember when the Democrats cared about human rights abuses?
