Of All The Dumb Ideas…

By Greg L | 11 September 2012 | Prince William County | 12 Comments

The Post reports that Prince William County might develop a “sister city” relationship with Jinzhou, China.  What a freakishly, insanely, bad idea.

Every single encounter I’ve had with Chinese business has been a bad one.  They’re thieves dressed up as capitalists, interested in little more than stealing whatever they can get their hands on and ripping off their customers.  Anyone who allows website traffic from Asia is deluged with nothing but malicious internet traffic and endless spam.  Anyone who has had the misfortune of watching a Chinese delegation at a trade show received a crash course in brazen industrial and military espionage.

Establishing a foothold for Chinese intelligence so close to DC would work out well for them, but do absolutely nothing for us.  Government should be focused on protecting us from the Chinese rather than encouraging more opportunities for them to abuse what little trust they have yet to squander.

    Greg,

    I can see your point on many fronts, but we live in a global economy and in terms of the Chinese IO threat to industiral espionage coming to NOVA: 1. It’s already here and 2. if there is a blatant business move in, we want them directly under the supervision of the FBI NOVA RA right across the street from Discovery. Just saying, this may not be all bad.

    Sister city relationships result in political boondoggles and sport exchanges for wealthier kids and their chaperones. BOCS members have a nice new perk if office arranged by Peacor and Stewart.

    I agree with Greg about the sister city thing. It’s just another excuse to waste taxpayer money and concoct boondoggles. Just wait - the first will be a taxpayer-funded junket for Manassas Ballet. PWC taxpayers already give them far more money than do Manassas taxpayers. How much longer will we remain so gullible?

    Let’s see the Chinese investments and jobs Corey says will be coming. Show me the money, not the bill!!

    From the Washoington Post:

    “The trip was spearheaded by officials from George Mason University and paid for by Hu Business International Group, a commercial real estate firm that has headquarters in New York and Shanghai. No county funds were used for the trip, Stewart said.

    Stewart said he hadn’t publicized the trip previously because he wasn’t sure what to expect and didn’t want to make promises he couldn’t keep.”

    So Stewart was going to take a trip to China, paid for by a foreign company very interested in investing in PWC, and NOT tell anyone? That doesn’t make a lick of sense, and looks shady - shouldn’t the County be aware if any incentives or promises were made to entice the companies to PWC….begs the question of when and if Stewart would have revealed it at all, if not for the Blogs revealing the info first…

    I wouldn’t be so sure that no County funds were used. PWC gives over $2 million annually ostensibly for the Hylton Performing Arts Center, which is owned and controlled entirely by GMU. The Sheriff had a good write-up on this recently. The Hylton Center’s finances are embedded in GMU’s so there’s no way of knowing exactly how they spend the PWC taxpayer money.

    “Birdies” on the ground, however, are chirping rather loudly that our tax money is not all used exactly as we are told.

    Don’t leave out the Freedom Center.

    China just about owns the US so why not PWC too?

    It is a little late to worry about Chinese intel . Who knows maybe Corey is planning to help steal our manufacturing sector back.

    The real question raised by this story is whether the Chinese firm was adequately checked out.

    Two stories to keep in mind:

    I agree with GL and that is a rare thing. They’re sneaky, conniving, and not worthy of trust. I’ve never had any dealing with them wher the preceding was not the case.

    The ONLY thing government at all levels is interested in doing is the EXACT opposite of what the people want. I figured that out about 5 years ago.

    From today’s InsideNOVA:

    Romney accused Obama of being soft on China, saying the president should have called China out on copyright infringements among other things.

    “They take technology from America. They steal our technology. They hack into our computers. They also steal our know-how,” Romney said. “The president’s had the chance, year-after-year to label China a currency manipulator and he hasn’t done so. We’re going to make sure that China understands that we mean business.”
