What has mainly been done in secret is now beginning to be done out in the open. If you doubted the validity of the conspiracies concerning the coming world government, even after Bush’s oft used references to a new world order, you might want to revisit the topic.
Use search terms Agenda 21, FTZ, intermodal, wildlands project, biodiversity, ICLEI, etc., etc., etc….

As manufacturing and American jobs continue to flow out of the US and into foreign countries offering better tax incentives, regulations, and cheaper labor, one place in America is offering China the opportuntity to bring their model of planned economy to our borders.
That place is the state of Idaho, and plans are being made right now to build a 50-mile self sustaining city and economic zone that has the approval of the state's Governor.
On June 9th, Governor Otter issued a letter showing his support of Project 60, which is the overall umbrella of future domestic and economic growth in the state of Idaho. Project 60 is very inncouous in itself, but under its mission and scope, the real purposes of the plan become apparent.
The details of the scheme seem to support that analysis. In very unclear terms, one of the principal planks of the Project 60 platform is known as “Inward Foreign Direct Investment.” As laid out on the Project 60 website, this portion of the plan will increase Idaho’s role “in global business” by providing foreign industry with “a strong impetus to economic development.”
The “impetus” is a two-pronged attack on Idaho’s domestic workforce (read: the middle class). First, through Project 60, foreign business interest are encouraged to take advantage of favorable national immigration laws. – The New American
These immigration laws are contained in the immigrant investor program known as EB-5. The policy allows immigrants to become US citizens for providing for, and creating jobs in the United States.
That in itself is not disturbing, but what is of consequence is the fact that Idaho is expanding the model to allow a foreign country to create a city and economic zone based on the parameters of Chinese influence, not US sovereignty.
…the idea would be to build a self-contained city with all services included. It would be modeled after the "special economic zones" that currently exist in China.
Perhaps the most famous of these "special economic zones" is Shenzhen. Back in the 1970s, Shenzhen was just a very small fishing village. Today it is a sprawling metropolis of over 14 million people.
If the Chinese have their way, we will soon be seeing these "special economic zones" pop up all over the United States. – Idaho Statesman via End of the American Dream
The ramifications of this have not been fully expressed in regards to sovereignty for a fully run foreign city on US soil. Questions such as, would the EPA have jurisdiction over these economic zones, especially when it comes to pollution and environmental concerns, and how would water rights and other resources be managed are but a few of the areas our laws differ from theirs. China is one of the largest polluters worldwide, and their standards for manufacturing are not in line with most of the developed world, and in regards to water rights for the area, would the planned city control access to water in and out of the economic zone, and be able to run utilities outside of US regulation and control?
The US government has already created up to 257 foreign trade zones in America, and besides the one being planned in Idaho, Chinese companies are also currently in talks with the states Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The irony of course is that China helped destroy manufacturing in these iron belt states through cheap labor practices, and now it is coming full circle that they may be the ones re-creating manufacturing here, but under foreign provisions.
There is an old saying that the borrower is slave to the lender, and with China owning so much US debt, this axiom is slowly becoming reality. As China seeks to make inroads in becoming an economic power inside the United States, they are not just planning to build factories and hire workers, but instead create whole cities and economic zones based on what has already been done on the mainland of China
