Given President Joe Biden’s age, mental fitness and general aptitude, it’s difficult enough for him to focus on one problem, let alone two.
But that’s no excuse for the President of the United States to turn a blind eye while a foreign rival moves in on America.
And now Republicans in Congress are begging President Biden to pay attention to China’s latest threat.
Why isn’t Biden looking at China?
Ukraine cannot win a land war with Russia.
But that’s not stopping President Joe Biden from continuing to prolong the inevitable by supporting Ukraine and costing thousands of innocent lives – not to mention tens of billions in U.S. taxpayer dollars.
And while Biden remains focused on the conflict in eastern Europe, he remains blind to what the Chinese Communist Party is doing right in front of him in the United States.
According to the United State Department of Agriculture, China owns over 191,000 acres of U.S. lands – mostly rural farm land.
And now they’re about to add another 300 acres as the AG Wed Fam Journal is reporting Chinese company, Fufeng Group, is acquiring the large plot of land in North Dakota for $2.6 million.
Fufeng Group says they intend to put a CCP milling plant on the land.
Making matters worse, the 300 acres just so happens to be right next to a North Dakota Air Force base.
Republicans sounding the alarm bells
While the Biden Administration tucks its collective heads into the sand as China takes over more and more U.S. soil, 51 Republican Congressmen are trying to sound the alarms.
The GOP lawmakers, led by Rep. Carlos Gimenez of Florida, are sending a letter to Biden’s Cabinet secretaries, Secretaries Lloyd Austin, Janet Yelle, and Tom Vilsack – warning that national security is threatened by a CCP-linked company’s efforts to buy farmland near a U.S. Air Force base.
Austin is the current Secretary of Defense, Yellen the Treasury Secretary and Vilsack the Secretary of Agriculture.
“According to the United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission, the Grand Forks Air Force Base has exceptional intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities, making the recently purchased land the ideal location to closely monitor and intercept military activity,” the lawmakers wrote. “The presence of a CCP-affiliated corporation near a military installation potentially undermines the integrity of our high-capability military bases, jeopardizing our strategic interests.”
The Republican Representatives go on in the letter to list other threats China’s purchase of more-and-more American land poses, including housing and food shortage concerns.
When is Congress going to start probing the mass purchasing of farmland by Bill Gates and China?

First-year GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado has been trying to draw attention to the issue of China – and Bill Gates – buying up large sums of farmlands for a long time now.
It is important to note, the Biden family has allegedly received millions of dollars in “business deals from Chinese corporations.”
