Blocking China’s Purchase of American Farmland

Blocking China’s Purchase of American Farmland

  21 Jul 2021   , ,

China and the tentacles of communism have been slowly reaching into our nation for decades. I have previously written about the serious threat to our electrical grid and the infiltration into our system there. Apps like Tick Tock are ever present and remain available to influence our children and reach into our homes. Hollywood has long been consumed by the need to satisfy the Chinese market, resulting in the onslaught of awful films we see today that continue to ruin the American movie machine. Our music industry is another being eaten through the likes of Universal and others as well as the video game industry and all of the likes of the media. We desperately need a massive shift back in the direction of the American dream, but another aspect of American life has been under attack by the Chinese Communist Party that isn’t spoken of as much and needs to be addressed just as well. This is our beloved American farmland. 

Here, China continues to advance not only into our energy resources, technology, schools, entertainment, media and homes, but also into our food supply. The good news is that they haven’t been as successful as you may think and action is currently underway to stop this from progressing any further.

As of 2020, China controls about 192,000 acres of American farmland, worth about 1.9 billion dollars. This may sound like a great lot, but in comparison Canada and countries in Europe own millions of acres of American farmland. Even all this together pales in comparison to the estimated nearly 900 million acres of total American farmland. The less than 200,000 acres of American farmland owned by China are but a sliver of what we and our allies still maintain, but if you ask me, China shouldn’t have its hands over a single inch of our agriculture here. 

H.R. 4356 (117) is a new bill that would block any new agricultural purchases by companies that are wholly or partly controlled by the Chinese government and stop Chinese owned farms that exist from sucking out any support from our federal programs. This is exactly the sort of legislation we need to stand up against China, and the same sort of legislation should be brought to every single American industry in existence. 

The new bill is actually seeing support from both sides of the aisle, with Republican and Democratic support. The measure is expected to reach the House by the end of July. Let us hope that this bill moves forward with continued support and clarity, as well as inspires our leaders to continue legislation enacting laws to help the people of the United States stand up against the threats that the Chinese Communist Party pose against freedom and prosperity here.

  1. This is a serious problem for America !!! WAKE up everybody ,THis country is slowly being bought by the Chinese !!! It must be stopped !!!

    1. Totally agree. Not only stop new purchases, but need to have them resell land owned to US Government. China should not be allowed to purchase any land, corporation or an US Entity.

  2. We can also go to our town and look at the books to determine if American land has been sold to the Chinese. If there is you can wait for the plants are growing pretty good and go and burn them out! Fight fire with fire!

    1. Nice thought but is not worth being thrown in jail when you are caught. You can bet they will cameras all over the place because that is the way the Communists operate.

  3. Get this bill to a vote as soon as possible, then list ALL names & how they voted, so we can know who in Congress stands for America, & who stands for China!
