Fifty-two thousand acres. A swath of land double the size of San Francisco. An enigmatic company named Flannery Associates. A mysterious land grab surrounding Travis Air Force Base, one of America’s most critical national security sites. And a labyrinthine web of questions with no answers in sight.
What’s going on in Solano County, California?
Since 2018, this shadowy entity known as Flannery Associates has been accumulating vast tracts of land around Travis Air Force Base, to the extent that they have become the largest property owner in the county. To put it plainly, it has surrounded the military base on three sides. Congressman John Garamendi, representing California’s 8th District, is baffled and alarmed. Even the Wall Street Journal raised an eyebrow, shedding light on the nearly $1 billion spent on land acquisitions.
With Flannery Associates being incorporated in Delaware, the maze thickens. State regulations have erected an impenetrable wall around the company’s activities, with no public paper trail to uncover who’s pulling the strings behind the limited liability firm. Government officials are scratching their heads, and whispers of national security risks are starting to circulate.
Is it a game of Monopoly or a well-orchestrated ploy?
One must delve into the numbers to understand the depth of this enigma. The company has bought or is under contract with 140 separate properties at over $800 million. Flannery admits to paying substantially above the market rate for its Solano County acquisitions. But why?
Is it the dry, rolling hills between Fairfield and Dixon, or the marshlands south to Rio Vista that have caught Flannery’s eye? Or is it something more?
Despite their sweeping control of land, Flannery Associates has never made public their intentions for the 52,000 acres. They’ve spun a tale of existing income streams, rent-free continuations, and significant grants for charitable giving. But the truth remains cloaked in shadow.
Flannery’s purchases are haunting Travis Air Force Base. It’s affecting family farmers, it’s stirring national security concerns, and it’s putting a chokehold on the once tranquil Solano County.
Now, the Treasury Department and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) may be tightening the noose, reviewing these clandestine acquisitions. A lawyer representing the Flannery group has let slip that 97% of the investors are American, with British and Irish financiers making up the rest. But can we trust this information?
Rep. Mike Thompson has urged the Treasury Department, the Department of Defense, and the FBI to investigate. The questions are mounting, the concerns are growing, and the answers are evading.
This land encircles Travis Air Force Base, which got its nickname for its vital role in troop and cargo transport during America’s wars in Asia. With 13,000 employees, it’s a key player in the U.S. defense system.
Flannery’s audacious moves are not just a game of real estate; they are a game of chess with the national defense strategy at stake.
The mysterious land grabs by Flannery Associates in Solano County remain unexplained. The intricate plot of land acquisitions, veiled intentions, and untraceable ownership leads us down a rabbit hole with no end in sight.
Is it merely a business venture, or is it a calculated play with the potential to shake the very foundations of our national security?
Only time will unravel the mystery of Flannery Associates. The people of Solano County, California, and indeed the entire nation, are watching and waiting, with bated breath, for the next move in this enigmatic game.
The eyes of truth are always watching you.
