IDAHO: Lake cottages put on international market is a crime

| August 14, 2022 1:00 AM

Recently, there was a story about a proposed storage facility with possible Chinese financing. Whether or not that is true, there are alarm bells that go off.

My cousin spent some time in American Samoa. I read about the Chinese taking over these islands in the Pacific with their soldiers. My cousin said that the Chinese come in and offer big loans to the governments of these islands. When the small island governments can’t repay the loans, the Chinese send their people in to literally take over the island and all its resources.

Dan Newhouse in Washington state is working against the Chinese who are buying large tracts of farmland. I understand that the Chinese are also investing heavily into luxury real estate and just real estate in general.

This must stop. The fact that the precious lake cottages of Idaho are put on the international market by Idaho Department of Lands is a crime. We cannot allow foreigners to buy up this country. The fact that these lands are auctioned at all is a crime but that’s another letter.
