The Trojan Triangle
The CORE in
Meridian, Idaho is a Trojan Triangle. I became aware of it when
there was an
article in the Idaho Statesman about an expected 23-person
delegation from COMMUNIST China to tour the location and see the plans.
The article mentions that COMMUNIST Chinese businessmen who invest $1
million can obtain visas for permanent resident status in the United
The CORE was
so named because it is located in a transportation corridor that is an intermodal commerce zone. I called the city
of Meridian and spoke with Brenda Sherwood about it. Ms. Sherwood
is the Meridian Economic Development Specialist. She said they
were considering submitting a request to have the area designated a 'Foreign
Trade Zone' but haven't decided yet. She said
CORE is an EB-5 Regional Center and is a
501-C6 organization. EB-5 zones are also called
"Targeted Employment Zones" TEA Zones. The
EB-5 visa program was established in "immigration reform"
legislation in 1990, the same year the
decision was made to dissolve the United States as a nation - and I
don't say that lightly. Obviously, this program isn't just
for the Chinese. On the VDARE website, there is an article about
the EB-5 visa program written by Rob Sanchez titled, "Scandals
and Vice in the EB-5 Program".
Apparently there are brokers that assist
groups in establishing an EB-5 Regional Centers.
The Artisan Business
Group is one such organization. And
immigration whor..attorneys are always happy to help the foreigners
get these visas.

Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter has highlighted the EB-5 program as
a “key element” of his effort to attract new foreign
investment to Idaho as part of Project 60, his plan to grow
the state’s annual gross domestic product to $60 billion
from $52 billion.
“The value of U.S. residency, and being put on the fast
track to citizenship, is an incredible tool to help us
attract foreign investment in our Idaho businesses,” he said
through a spokesman in response to the center’s creation.
“We don’t want to miss this opportunity to infuse our
economy with new investment that will stimulate job

60 is a comprehensive initiative to grow Idaho's Gross Domestic Product.
Designed in three tiers to strengthen both rural and urban communities,
the plan will create quality jobs for all Idahoans by fostering systemic
growth, recruiting new companies to Idaho,
and selling Idaho's trade and
investment opportunities to the world."
EB-5 Regional Centers
for information about the EB-5 Regional Centers and in particular, "The
CORE" in Idaho, I found a link to a slide presentation in pdf format
that describes the Regional Center Business Model. I'm including
the original link so that you can see where it came from, but I had
problem getting the entire document to download so you may not be able
to get the whole thing. I finally did get it - and you can view it
HERE. When you look at it, you'll understand why I'm including
the original link:
The following are slides from the slide
Quite a racket isn't it?
A friend who
recently became aware of Trojan Triangles found an article in the Idaho
Statesman titled, "Gov.
Butch Otter brings the herd into China at a gallop". The
following is an excerpt from that article:
"free" day for most of the participants, the only one scheduled in
the trip, due in part to the long arduous flight and the unavoidable
jet lag. But several companies had meetings Sunday including the
Idaho State Regional Center, which is seeking to attract Chinese
investors through a federal immigrant investor program the center
offers them a green card to come to the U.S. if they invest $10
million and create 10 jobs.
Now look at
Butch Otter's Project 60 again - "Project
60 is a comprehensive initiative to grow Idaho's gross domestic product
from $51.5 billion to $60 billion". Where do you suppose he
is going to find that $8.5 billion? Is our Governor just a
taxpayer funded real estate salesman? Selling the state
where he is supposed to be serving the citizens of Idaho? That's
what it looks like to this writer.
"Innovation" is that they devised a way to sell America out from under
us - without us even knowing about it for the most part.
yet another program that is part of Project 60. It exists as the
intermediary between taxpayer funded "research" through the national
laboratories and universities and the beneficiary who is selected to
receive all of the small business assistance provided by the state and
federal government to exploit the technology. Formally, it's
called technology transfer. James Winebrake of MIT wrote a paper
about technology transfer in 1990 that describes the concept titled, "An
Analysis of Transfer Mechanisms for Federally Funded Research and
A few days ago
when I first started researching TechConnect, there was a radio
interview on the Idaho Business Coach website featuring Rick Ritter, CEO
of TechConnect and "Fund the
Frontier". Darn.... the program doesn't seem to be there
But... not to
worry. I downloaded it and you can hear Rick Ritter talk
about the EB-5 program. Rick Ritter is the local Regional Center
Czar who chooses the winners and losers in the sellout of America and

Business Incentives for Locating in Idaho
(Selling out Idaho Citizens)
I have to say, this is the most
incredible scam I've ever seen in my entire life. Benefits to
business that locate here are documented on the Idaho Department of
Commerce website and in a brochure produced by them. In effect,
Idaho taxpayers are subsidizing foreign businesses - including subsidies
for jobs that are created and they are doing it in zones that are tax
exempt and the state of Idaho will provide customized worker training
programs for these businesses. Absolutely astounding.

Taxpayer and Foreign Funded Small Business Factory System
Again, this is the most incredible thing
I've ever seen. They've set up a taxpayer funded small business
factory system. All of the groups involved in
are essentially a system for producing small businesses in an assembly
line style. The Small Business Development Center is run out of
the universities and as I said in the Community section of this
documentation on Trojan Triangles, the
Universities are the King Makers.
The Project 60
website has a link off their page for the
Idaho Small Business Development
Center. The front page says the following:
Idaho Small Business Development Center (Idaho SBDC) is a
university-based organization offering confidential no-cost business
consulting and low-cost training to help small businesses and
entrepreneurs start and grow. Idaho SBDC clients consistently
outperform their peers.
clients outperform their peers because of all the benefits and tax
breaks they get from the connections they have.
It doesn't take long to put an existing small business out of business.
All you have to do is to bring in a heavily subsidized "competing" small
business and within a few months to a year or so, the existing
businesses will go out of business. And that is the idea -
to put out of business, the existing Idaho businesses that are not
connected. This isn't just crony capitalism. It is the
method to convert the U.S. economic system to a socialist (communist)
Back to the
core..... (as in coring out the American small business sector - same as
they've done with manufacturing and knowledge jobs.)
Work Based Learning
While "The CORE" is presented to the public
and business community as a business park, it is actually an integral
component in the transition of our economy to a communist system of
labor management and economic control via the education system.
Before looking at this, refer back to
Michael Porter and his clusters
and competition schtick. He proselytizes the path to
"Innovation, Competition and Strategy" - with the strategy being to do a
cluster study of the businesses in their area. A cluster is a
business sector of the economy along with the suppliers to the
businesses (supply chain). Once the business "targets" are
identified, a zone or corridor is established like "The CORE"
to "create jobs by attracting new business" and "attract a
high quality workforce" - at least that 's what the propaganda says.
You got part of the story above with the information about the EB-5
"targeted employment areas" and the foreign direct investment
money (buying American citizenship - and funding new business startups
via the 'Small Business Czar' who decides what small businesses to fund.
The following is "the rest of the story":

the National Center for Research in Vocational Education at Berkeley,
published a paper by Robert Beck of the University of Minnesota.
It was titled, "Polytechnical
Education - A Step". The following is an
abstract of the paper as it appears on ERIC, the U.S. Department of
Education repository of information about education:
ABSTRACT: Relating vocational to
academic programs in U.S. high schools is a challenge. Usually, more
academic subjects are required for graduation, while vocational
study is squeezed into the electives. This is not a balance; what is
needed is an interaction between the academic and the vocational,
the product of which is a general education persuasively stronger
than what currently exists. Collaboration between teachers of
vocational and academic studies will make academic studies more
relevant and students will be less likely to drop out of school
before graduation. Such a collaboration could be termed
polytechnical education. The Soviet Union has developed a curriculum
of polytechnical education, in an effort to establish "parity of
esteem" of vocational and academic preparation. Soviet polytechnical
education is rooted in the Marxist-Leninist ideology, which
remains a powerful influence despite a move toward an economy
responsive to the market. Soviet polytechnical education has
different manifestations in rural and urban areas, but it has an
essential structure. It can also facilitate vocational learning and
career decision making. A polytechnical education system such as the
Soviet Union has could be a step toward integrating academic and
vocational education in the United States. (This paper contains
an extension examination of the Soviet polytechnical system and 75

Co-operative Education in
Cincinnati: Implications for School-to-Work Programs in the U.S.
W. N. Grubb, J. C. Villeneuve
The recent school-to-work
legislation mandates work-based learning, one form of which is
cooperative education. Yet individuals developing these
programs have so far had few models from which to learn. This report
offers an in-depth study of cooperative education in the Cincinnati
area, where it has had a long and successful history. The
authors--Norton Grubb, NCRVE's Berkeley site director, and Jennifer
Curry Villeneuve--describe conditions crucial to exemplary coop
programs, including a "high-quality equilibrium" of students and
work experiences, sustained by the commitment and close working
relationships of employers and schools. Also explored are challenges
such as equitable access, and the split between employers with
educational motives and those who see coop students as short-term
labor. This paper is an excellent resource for anyone developing a
cooperative education program.

commonly referred to in the insider circles as the 'Innovation Ecosystem'. It is a
program of providing federal and state funding and support for private

developed here will doubtless be exported for production to the same
foreign countries that have already decimated our economy.

activists are well aware of "school-to-work" as a concept for
