China Invading USA, Buying Tracts of Land Adjacent to Sensitive Sites
But will China’s buddy Biden do anything about it?
Americans found themselves doubly outraged in recent days, after a Chinese spy balloon was discovered to be conducting surveillance missions on wide swaths of the US, possibly targeting the ICBM fields in the northern areas of the nation.
The second outrage was thanks to President Joe Biden’s unwillingness to shoot down the balloon until it had already made its journey from coast to coast, and was out over the Atlantic Ocean.
But there is another sinister Chinese invasion occurring, and it’s not the sort of situation where a well-placed missile is going to do the trick off the coast of North Carolina.
Concerns are growing over China’s effort to buy up American farmland near U.S. military bases.
China expert Michael Pillsbury issued an urgent warning on “Mornings with Maria,” for legal action to be taken against the Chinese Communist Party as concerns for national security swell.
“It’s a very important subject and it’s a good example of a larger problem,” he told host Maria Bartiromo on Monday.
“There needs to be a law passed by both houses, signed by the president monitoring this or saying it cannot be done if it’s so many hundreds of miles away from an Air Force base. But there’s no action by Congress,” he continued.
The issue isn’t some paranoid delusion, either.
According to the USDA, Chinese landowners control approximately 383,000 acres of U.S. farmland – and their investments are growing, FOX Business’ Lydia Hu reported on Monday. Chinese ownership of U.S. farmland jumped more than 20-fold in a decade from $81 million in 2010 to nearly $1.9 billion in 2021.
Hu pointed out that the Fufeng Group,a China-based chemical manufacturing company, bought 300 acres of land for a corn mill in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The location is only 12 miles away from the Grand Forks Air Base, home to U.S. intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance units and top-secret drone technology.
Sen. Mike Rounds, R-SD, is one of a group of lawmakers sounding the alarm over the matter. He is leading a bipartisan effort to prevent China and other foreign adversaries from being able to buy into land or businesses involved in U.S. agriculture.
“China, the Chinese Communist Party, has increased their holdings of farmland outside of China by 1,000% in the last few years… They own 1,300 egg processing facilities outside of China at a value of $35 billion. Food security is national security,” Sen. Mike Rounds, R-SD, said on “The Evening Edit” Friday.
Even the Air Force is growing concerned, having already sent one letter to lawmakers urging action on the basis of national security.
Inaction by the Biden administration could reiterate concerns among American voters about the President’s soft spot when it comes to dealing with Beijing.
