Bribe’m Biden might let Chinese “weather balloons” lurk high in the sky above sensitive American nuclear sites, but red states are making their best efforts to dislodge the claws the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has on the United States.
Starting with getting the CCP’s tentacles out of American farmland, which is critical for Americans’ long-term food needs.
Arkansas recently passed Act 636, which expressly prohibits land ownership for foreign party-run businesses, brisky declaring, “land ownership by prohibited foreign-party-controlled business prohibited.”
That means that China-based Syngenta, which is the parent company of Northrop King Seed Co., must sell all its farmland in Craighead County within the next two years.
Though Syngenta has owned the land in Arkansas since 1988, the company had been acquired by China National Chemical Corp. in 2017 – which is listed as a national security threat by the Department of Defense (DOD).
Indeed, China National Chemical Corporation was listed as one of the “entities identified as Chinese military companies operating in the United States.”
Basically, the type of companies that Brandon would do “business” with.
“Seeds are technology,” Arkansas Governor Sarah Sanders noted, adding that China-controlled companies can exploit American efforts for their own illicit gain.
“Chinese-owned state corporations filter that technology back to their homeland, stealing American research and telling our enemies to target American farms … This is a clear threat to our national security and to our farmers,” Sanders added crisply.
Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin chimed in, rather sardonically, “the idea that the Chinese government would care about non-military assets is exactly what they’ve demonstrated over the last few decades.”
Saswato Das, a Syngenta spokesperson, vehemently disapproved of the Republicans’ decision to limit Beijing’s land ownership in the United States, ranting that the activities of Syngenta were “primarily used for research and project development for the US market.”
Emphasis on the word “primarily,” as such word usage suggests a hidden “secondary” intention.
After all, wasn’t the Wuhan Institute of Virology “primarily” orchestrated for studying viruses, rather than spreading viruses?
Yet a spread is precisely what happened, no matter how much Brandon’s business partners tried to stonewall the world.
“The order for Syngenta to divest itself of 160 acres of agricultural land in Craighead County, which the company has owned since 1988, is a shortsighted action that fails to account for the effects of such an action – intended or not, on the US agricultural market,” Das added angrily.
So, in other words, Das is also delivering implicit threats as well, especially in terms of “the effects of such an action” remark.
“Syngenta’s work in the US – including in Arkansas – continues to benefit American farmers, strengthens American agriculture and makes the US a more innovative and competitive participant in the global agricultural marketplace,” Das continued.
Sure, because military interests in China are just so interested in making the United States more “competitive” and “innovative.”
More like “weak” and “vulnerable” … which is exactly what happens when they’re allowed to own veritable pieces of American soil.
