Foreign nationals affiliated with the Chinese Communist government have been trying to buy up critical U.S. farmland for years but for some reason the Biden Regime has COMPLETELY turned a blind eye to these purchases – is Joe helping the Chinese acquire America’s most important asset?
The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) discovered that Joe’s Regime has almost INTENTIONALLY made it impossible to track and monitor land purchases made by CCP affiliated individuals.
Under Biden, the Department of Agriculture (USDA) has failed to consistently share timely data on foreign investments in U.S. agricultural land as required under the 1978 Agricultural Foreign Investment Disclosure Act (AFIDA).
The USDA is supposed to provide the Pentagon with up-to-date data regarding these types of purchases but they’ve “conveniently” failed to do so.
The GAO found that the USDA reportedly has flawed processes to collect, track, and report key information. They are required by law to create a more efficient online process by the end of 2025 – but under Biden’s direction they have ZERO plans to comply with that law and are instead, more interested with allowing the Chinese government to take ownership of as much American farmland as possible.
Even the data that the USDA has collected is considered to be largely inaccurate. For example one of their data sets reported the largest Chinese land holding TWICE.
But more importantly, they likely left off a SIGNIFICANT portion of the land that the CCP actually owns. USDA Data stated that at the end of 2022, China held about 500,000 acres of U.S. agricultural land but even they admit that these numbers should be “interpreted as a minimum.”
Republican Congressman Dan Newhouse said that these GAO findings confirmed his “worst fears” about the willful ignorance towards China taking place with Joe Biden calling the shots.
“Not only is the USDA unable to answer the question of who owns what land and where, but that there is no plan by the department to internally reverse this dangerous flaw that affects our supply chain and economy,” Wash said while noting that “Food security IS national security.”
But Biden hasn’t been concerned about America’s national security ever since he took office so that’s not likely to change anytime soon.
As a result of all of this, the GOP has had to scrutinize land purchases made by foreign investors more heavily with other members of Congress similarly saying that the Chinese owned farmland poses a “direct threat to our food security and national security.”
Sadly, the issues related to the Chinese efforts to buy up American land go much deeper than JUST our food security (which is bad enough on its own.)
Over the past few years the CCP has been trying to acquire land that is in close proximity to KEY American military installments all over the country.
In February 2023, one Chinese company with government ties attempted to purchase a plot of land that nearby a critical U.S. Air Force base in North Dakota.
Later in August another CCP linked firm purchased a few hundred acres of land and attempted to build a factory that was located just 60 miles from military armories and 100 miles from Camp Grayling, the largest U.S. National Guard Training facility in the country.
These types of purchases are happening ALL OVER and only a small percentage of them are being stopped – all thanks to a Joe Biden effort to HELP the CCP get away with buying American land out from under REAL American companies.
