Why are bridges in the USA being built by Chinese companies?
Posted 07/21/2012 | In The News40
In an ABC News investigative report on the rebuilding of American infrastructure, it was learned that three major bridge projects in the U.S. were awarded to Chinese government owned construction firms, rather than U.S. companies. ABC reported that each project — the Alexander Hamilton Bridge in New York, a new bridge connecting San Francisco to Oakland and a bridge in Alaska — were all awarded to Chinese government construction companies using Chinese workers to build the projects.
The clip shows President Barack Hussein Obama addressing a crowd of his supporters with the Alexander Hamilton Bridge in the background. “Help us rebuild this bridge,” the president urges the crowd in his speech to trusting workers. “Help us rebuild America!” he shouts to his supporters. “Help us put American construction workers back to work,” the president tells those now cheering him on, however, the $400 million project was given to a Chinese government owned construction company.
That was just a drop in the bucket. The Chinese were awarded a $7.2 billion bridge project to connect San Francisco and Oakland and the $190 million bridge project in Alaska that could have put thousands of American construction workers back on the job.

Know this is not current…but…this should come up during the election…..to heck with the Birth Certificate……a phony can ( was ) be made…..thought that even in the 60′s when someone is Born or Dies that the local municipalities-towns-villages kept a large Ledger Record Book for each….I have seen them myself in a local L.I. Village….everthing Inked-In…….if Hawaii had such a book in the 60′s why has no one even questioned that or requested to see the Ledger Book for the time period of the Traitor’s birth……how does one erase a line in such a book????…the Donald should continue his quest.

That will make Mr Obama happy since he has declared war on the American entrepreneur.

He likes to live off government $, then impeach him for treason & fraud ++ without a USA Pension + Benefits.

I would guess these bridges are to be paid for with money borrowed from China. What a sad state of things in this once great country. I hope I live long enough to see it come back.

Go though your homes and tag everything that is made in China I honestly wonder if we tried one month to avoid all items made in China whether or not we would survive. I just got a couple sweat bands for my hardhat and they were made in China. The simplest things we have that could be made anywhere are from China. We need a movement to ban purchses for 30 days nationwide.

It is up to the voters of the United States in November to be sure OBama does not become a two term President.
Unfortunately the Unions plus a lot of Americans will try to keep Obama in office. Where is the outrage???????
If the polls are correct we are in real trouble. I surely hope they are wrong saying Obama will win.
07/28/2012 at 3:25 pm
the problem is that most people do not see this news. Get it to Fox and they will get it out.
07/28/2012 at 10:46 pm
I am surprised that ABC reported this. It usually protects Obama and the dems from incriminating news. Of course those of us who live in the SF Bay area know about the Chinese involvement in the new bay bridge. Not only that but replacement beams for the existing bridge were found to be defective when they were installed about a year or so ago. They were made in China also. It wouldn’t surprise me if the former mayor who is now in the state govt. and probably Pelosi too, received some nice bribes in order to help steer the contracts to the Chinese. Whenever things get done silently it is almost certain that some politicians were paid off.

EVERY POLITICIAN SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO POST HIS/HER RESUME TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR THE POSITION HE IS RUNNING FOR. ALL CAMPAIGN PROMISES WRITTEN DOWN AND POSTED FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO USE TO QUALIFY THE CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION, IF HE IS SUCCESSFUL IN HIS/HER BID FOR THE JOB.
07/28/2012 at 2:10 pm
Someone needs to post this on CPA web site. We are in BIG trouble here folks.

While some of you make some very astute observations and suggestions instead of “preaching to the choir” in these kinds of forums; Get busy and start spreading the word about the havoc the traitor has and continues to reap on America and We The People to everyone you know!!!! surprisingly many less then aware people believe O.bozo’s and network media’s on going lies!!!
Kudos to Dianne Sawyer and ABC for there courage in reporting these atrocities!! I don’t remember hearing/seeing this on any other network!!

Obama has no problem living with himself. He is a manchurian candidate, a man on a mission, a Don Quixote.
Obama is on a mission and you all have identified it very well. to bring down America. Don’t waste your time trying to use your values and logic to rationalize his actions. Obama does not value what we value. It is much like trying to teach pigs to sing. It frustrates the pigs and it frustrates the teacher. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. You kno what to do. Take the country back, Senate, and Executive Branch. Got it or are you alteady a comrade? Not hardly big fella. . .
07/28/2012 at 12:00 pm
I’m tired of people saying that obama is making mistakes.He knows exactly what he is doing.It is time for us to tell it like it is.Obama is trying to destroy our country and if he is reeleectd,he will accomlplish it. One of the first thing he will do will declre himself perminite ruler. Of course he will say that this for the good of the country.Does this sound like his buddy CHAVEZ ??

Here is a weird trick to seem intelligent. First type your comments in a word processing document. Then spell and grammar check. Then post your comments on the Internet. Everyone will then think you graduated from State College instead of you currently proving to the world where our village idiot is currently located.

The village idiot is in Washington, DC, at the white house, using our tax dollars for his personal delight. Wake up!!!!!!

Sorry for the typos
07/28/2012 at 10:10 am
Noone will impeach him.He’s worked hard his first term to make Congress irellevant.Look how often he goes around them with no consequence.The place to restore order is CONGRESS.If Congress does not vote his way,he just uses executive order-look at Fast and Furious.This makes Watergate look tame in comparison.Get rid of the following.Harry Reid,Nancy Pelosi,Valerie Jarret.Tax cheat running our treasury,a liar running our justice dept,47 czars who do NOT answer to Congress or anyone else.What copuld possibly go wrong? This great country’s future will be decided Nov. 6.If somone needs a ride to the polls-TAKE THEM!!! We lose this and this country is history.

Jeffery Immelt, Obama’s jobs “czar” is spending billions to move GE’s x-ray division to China. Guess jobs is jobs to Obama.
07/28/2012 at 9:31 am
I know the chief engineer on the Bay Bridge in CA and he says 30% of China steel is rejected for not meeting specs.
08/03/2012 at 7:42 pm
No surprise here.
07/28/2012 at 9:26 am
If you are surprised, you probably voted for Obama.
07/28/2012 at 9:16 am
Why does this (our government) keep doing business with a communist country?
This is as stupid as people can get. Just goes to show you that our politicians are
STUPID!!!!!!! Just giving china more chances to take over everything. Get these countries
out of our beloved country. Get Obama out to keep our country strong.
07/28/2012 at 9:19 am
This Government is a Communist government since 1932, wake up.
07/28/2012 at 10:14 am

What? Why don’t ABC, NBC, CBS broadcast the living daylights out of this? I most certainly hope that Mr. Romney hangs his hat on this one.
07/28/2012 at 10:53 pm
I wouldn’t hold my breath that Romney is going to use it to his advantage. He suffers from the same “nobility” that McCain suffers from, they want to appear as the good guys, above the fray so to speak. In the process of course they commit political suicide. and take the rest of us with them. The Dems win because they are dirty fighters and they don’t care for the sheeple that believe in them and vote for them. Americans like dirty fights.

I just don’t understand why the American people still support Obama. He is a traitor to everything America stands for. We will not survive his re-election. My dear people. You need to realize who and what this guy is PLEASE, WAKE UP!!!!!.
07/28/2012 at 8:45 am

Could be some of those billions or trillions of dollars they’ve loaned the inept U.S. government are the reason. The borrower is a slave to the lender as the Bible says. How else are they going to get their money back huh? It was probably part of some deal to get the dough. At the rate we’re going we’ll be melting down soon. Certain to happen if Obama doesn’t get booted out.
07/21/2012 at 3:50 pm
He said that he was going to fundamentally “change” America. He has. Now can we “change” her back?
07/28/2012 at 10:55 pm
No, it is too late, so get used to it. You were all sleeping for too long, voting for the same incumbents over and over again. Serves all of you right.
07/21/2012 at 2:40 pm
I am flabbergasted. Now can you all see why we need to get rid of this administration?

The mainstream media gave extensive coverage to the Occupy movement but gave little notice to the millions that turned out to support Chick-fil-A.
Is this because it was not newsworthy?
Is it proof of Media Bias against traditional American Values?
