House GOP sounds the alarm over Chinese Communist Party-linked land buy near U.S. Air Force base
By: Madeleine Hubbard - Just The News - 09-27-22 1:20 PM

House Republicans are raising national security concerns over a Chinese Communist Party-linked company buying land near an Air Force base in North Dakota.

"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," 51 GOP members of Congress, led by Florida Rep. Carlos Gimenez wrote in a letter Monday to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

The letter was also addressed to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

The Fufeng Group, a China-based manufacturer with close ties to Beijing, purchased land near the Grand Forks Air Force Base, which the House Republicans said is an "ideal location to closely monitor and intercept military activity."

The representatives said they specifically included Secretary Vilsack in the letter because the land purchase also threatens food security as foreign investors own more than 37 million acres of agricultural land.

The Republicans asked the secretaries to "take effective action in addressing the potential national security risks" that stem from the Fufeng Group's purchase and "what it means for the future of our national security."

Members of Congress have warned on several occasions about China's purchase of U.S. farmland. Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.C.) proposed a bill last month to stop companies based in China, Russia, North Korea and Iran from purchasing or investing in U.S. agricultural land.
Personal note: What is wrong with this country. Elements of the far right who dislike
American's in general - leasing land in the US - something is very wrong with those
who would agree to such intrusion.
This contract was signed off by whom? Authorization and Judicial Approval is
needed I would suspect.
Talk about a breach in our security - an open door leasing of our lands to a
foreign element who hates us and dislikes our American way of life - is now
homesteading on US lands within our boundaries - is God Awful and just
plain wrong! Who signed off on such a provision of allowance within our

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
