Air Force Issues Stark Warning Over Chinese Factory in North Dakota

This is SCARY!

As the 21st century continues to roll forward, into some of the same trouble the we found ourselves in around the middle of the last century, there are seismic geopolitical risks threatening to shatter the landscape.

One of the most serious concerns for Americans is the threat posed by China, whose societal influence on the global community is being bankrolled by incredible heists of intellectual property and a complete disregard for the safety or sanity of the workforce.

As Beijing’s wide-ranging clandestine operations continue to fester, the US Air Force is taking exception to a Chinese industrial incursion in North Dakota.

After more than a year of debate about whether a Chinese company’s plan to build a corn mill in North Dakota was an economic boon or a geopolitical risk, an assistant secretary of the Air Force has weighed in with a warning that the “project presents a significant threat to national security.”

The letter from Assistant Secretary Andrew P. Hunter, released publicly on Tuesday by North Dakota’s senators, noted the proximity of Grand Forks Air Force Base to the proposed mill and said the project raised “near- and long-term risks of significant impacts to our operations in the area.”

The debate over Fufeng USA’s plan to build a giant milling facility on the edge of Grand Forks, less than 15 miles from the Air Force base, divided the Republican power structure in North Dakota and showed just how swiftly the economic relationship between the United States and China had changed.

The concerns were of a national nature.

Though the Air Force letter did not name specific threats, residents had voiced numerous concerns. Some in town said it was unwise to deepen economic ties with China, while others speculated that the mill could be used for spying on the Air Force, which the company denied.

The city’s Republican mayor, Brandon Bochenski, a former supporter of the project, said on Tuesday that because of the federal guidance, he would move to block construction by trying to deny building permits and by refusing to connect city infrastructure to the building site.

“The Air Force left ambiguity off the table,” the state’s two senators, John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer, both Republicans, said in a joint statement that called for Grand Forks officials to work with them “to find an American company to develop the agriculture project.”

China has been a focus of national security experts in recent years, particularly after Joe Biden took over the presidency.

Biden and his son Hunter are both believed to have extensive and expensive business ties to Beijing.
