GOP Rep Sounds The Alarm On China's Land-Grab In The US
Unlike a lot of that media noise, this is something to be concerned about and shouldn't go ignored—Though it is. China, as you read this, is attempting to buy up US farmland. He who controls the food chain...
I know, right now China has the US on high alert with Pelosi in Taiwan but I can't see a world where attacking the US in physical combat will end well for anyone. However, this kind of crap worries me.
House. Rep Chip Roy says America needs to 'wake up' to this very real threat to control the US supply chain from the inside. Adding , "we introduced H.R. 3847, that's Curing America's Land From Foreign Interference Act, to specifically try to force that, to try to stop the Chinese Communist Party, our enemy, our adversary, from being able to pick up and buy American land."
He continued, "Can you imagine, can you imagine if we woke up one day and oh Khrushchev is buying up a bunch of dirt across the country? Can you imagine what we would do? The reaction would’ve been off the charts but yet we are kind of asleep at the switch right now while the Chinese Communist Party is taking specific steps like Michael outlined to attack our country."
Roy added, "By the way, it’s not just China. We have 37 million acres in this country that are foreign-owned. That is essentially the size of Iowa. We got to wake up. We need to wake up here in Washington and prohibit this and stop it and not allow them to have our agriculture products like 140,000 acres next to Laughlin Air Force base in Texas in south Texas and Val Verde, Texas. Extremely concerning from a national security standpoint."
So what can you do about this? Support officials trying to stop silent invasions like this.
Grow! It's not too late to start a garden. Build yourself of like-minded growers and support each other.
Even if China fails at this new plot, the supply chain isn't steady right now. Take care of each other.
If you don't live where there is land to grow, make friends with people who do. Grow in the container. Grow indoors. More likely than not, this is just another financial gain plot from China than a silent takeover. Don't give it to them. Support your local growers.
