The Western Journal is reporting that farm organizations in the US are warning that individuals connected with the Chinese Communist Party are buying farmland in America.
According to a report by Successful Farming, people based in Communist China have already purchased 192,000 acres.
And this is raising concerns in the US Congress. Rep. Dan Newhouse stated that such purchases could potentially set the stage for “the creation of a Chinese-owned agricultural land monopoly” inside America.
In response, a recent voice vote by the House Appropriations Committee added an amendment to the USDA-FDA funding bill that would prevent individuals from Communist China from purchasing any additional land and any land previously purchased would no longer be eligible for federal agricultural subsidies.
But it is not just land.
According to an article in American Thinker, the 2013 purchase of hog producer, Smithfield Foods based in Sioux Falls, Idaho, for $4.7 billion by a group with close connections to the Chinese Communist Part meant Communist China-based businesses control one in four hogs raised in the US.
Some are warning if these Chinese controlled producers decide to ship pork to China, that consumes half of the world’s pork production, it could result in shortages and higher prices in the US.
Similar concerns were recently expressed in Britain when a communist China based corporation purchased the country’s largest micro-computer chip manufacturer in early July 2021, during a hostile takeover.
Several are concerned that the Communist regime is trying to take control of the world computer chip manufacturing industry. Because of the recent pandemic, corporations around the world are vulnerable to take-overs.
According to a recent report in Britain, corporations and investors from Communist China have purchased nearly $135 billion worth of businesses in Britain, including vital infrastructures such as water, power networks and airports. This also includes the recent purchase of British Steel, that supplies a third of the country’s steel.

Though these purchases are often made by privately-owned businesses in Communist China, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) requires all businesses based in the country to have a CCP committee set up within its corporate governance structure, that ensures the communist government’s influence in the business. This also includes any foreign corporations that wants to set up businesses in the regime.

Meanwhile, in Canada, the Parliament of Canada is embroiled in a legal battle with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to force Trudeau to release information on why a Communist China military scientist working in Canada’s Level 4 virology lab in Winnipeg, Manitoba was fired and escorted out the lab in 2019 by the RCMP.
The National Post provides explains:
Opposition parties have joined forces to demand the documents in hope that they’ll shed light on why scientists Xiangguo Qiu and her husband, Keding Cheng, were escorted out of Winnipeg’s National Microbiology Laboratory in July 2019 and subsequently fired last January.
They also seek documents related to the transfer, overseen by Qiu, of deadly Ebola and Henipah viruses to China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology in March 2019.
Note, they are not even asking the more obvious question: Why Trudeau allowed a member of the People’s Liberation Army into the lab in the first place?
