A Chinese firm is building a massive wind farm near Laughlin Air Force base in southwest Texas, and both state and federal lawmakers are advancing legislation to stop it.
The wind farm project, known as the Blue Hills Wind development, is being managed by GH America Energy, the U.S. subsidiary of the Chinese Guanghui Energy Company according to a 2020 report by Foreign Policy. The project entails the purchase of around 140,000 acres of land located about 70 miles from Laughlin Air Force Base. Guanghui Energy is owned by Sun Guangxin, a Chinese billionaire who reportedly has ties to the ruling Chinese Communist Party.
The Blue Hills wind farm has raised concerns of efforts to spy on or otherwise interfere in U.S. flight training. The wind power project has also raised concerns the power supply to the Air Force base could be vulnerable to hostile actors.
Local officials reviewing the wind farm project wrote a letter to then-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Secretary of the Air Force Barbara Barrett, expressing concerns the project could pose challenges to the base’s regular flight training operations.

***So what is the real purpose of this Chinese outpost? ***
Same as the Russian “fishing fleet” off the runway at Guam and Okinawa back in 1968-1969.
Someday, children will ask their parents.. ‘What are birds?’ becuz there are few to none left.
And the parents will point to the itchy red mosquitoes bites covering their kids exposed skin and say, “Birds are like bats and they both used to eat the mosquitoes, but now we have neither but lots of wonderful renewable energy and lots of insects which make delicious eating.”
“You see, my sear child, how things work out for the best, even if a few sacrifices have to be made for the grater good?”
“Mommy, is the mosquito soup ready yet, I’m hungry.”
“Just as soon as the bark and grass souffle is done, we’ll squat down for the evening repast. Now hush, child.”
