    Surge Summary: Not much reporting is going on concerning the issue of foreign powers buying up valuable American land. The U.S. Media could take a cue from the British press, parts of which have the guts to pass along uncomfortable information.

    Whoopee!  Confusion reigns…still.

    As I write this, the word is that the virus vaccine is ready for the population in months instead of years…and the word is that it’s highly effective!  Of course I’m going to say that Operation Warp Speed did it by cutting through a LOT of red tape, and that the cutter of that tape was the CURRENT President, Donald J. Trump.

    With the confirmation of the Harris administration, and that’s NOT a mistake, we will return to the bad old days of high gas prices, lots of unnecessary regulation, the return of “good relations” with China, and the draining of the military’s blood.  China, and both Iran and Russia, will celebrate the return of “easy pickings” and the continued downfall of America.  All during the eight years of the Hussein Horde’s strong efforts to bring down America, we patriots stood fast, we didn’t riot or loot, we didn’t have parades proclaiming that Hussein wasn’t our President.  Perhaps the strongest point to be made here is that we didn’t investigate the shenanigans that the Horde was doing.  The media fell in love with Hussein and for them he could do no wrong, so most of the stories that were occurring never saw the light of day.

    When Hussein claimed that there were no scandals during his reign I almost burst a blood vessel!  In actuality, there was almost a daily scandal!  It doesn’t need listing here because more and better writers than I have already done that…and the public just looks the other way.  If there was a way that he could have carried out his “transformation” of America, he would have done it, but the Presidents only get two terms…thankfully.  Now, here comes Mr. Biden, the seat-warmer for Ms. Harris, and he’s bringing the gang back together, and if they are allowed to, it will morph into Hussein’s third term.  That will translate to the finish of America.  Slowly, but surely, we will descend from the top of the heap to the bottom.  We will leave the shining city on the hill and take up residence in a detention camp.  Will the last one leaving America please turn out the lights?

    How is it that a British newspaper, the Daily Mail, can bring to light stories that we should be hearing…but we cannot?  Oh wait, I remember, the left-leaning (to the point of falling over) media, either doesn’t remember what journalism is, or they DO, and choose to ignore it.  Media is supposed to report the news, not fabricate it.  The Daily Mail had this to say on December 12th: “Leaked files expose mass infiltration of UK firms by Chinese Communist Party including AstraZeneca, Rolls Royce, HSBC and Jaguar Land Rover.  Loyal members of Chinese Communist Party are working in British consulates, universities and for some of the UK’s leading companies, The Mail on Sunday can reveal Leaked database of 1.95m registered party members reveals how Beijing’s malign influence now stretches into almost every corner of British life, including defense firms, banks and pharmaceutical giants.  Some members, who swear oath to ‘guard Party secrets, be loyal to the Party, work hard, fight for communism throughout my life…and never betray the Party’, are understood to have jobs in British consulates”

    Writing in The Mail on Sunday, former Tory Party leader Iain Duncan Smith says: ‘This investigation proves that members of the Chinese Communist Party are now spread around the globe, with members working for some of the world’s most important multinational corporations, academic institutions and our own diplomatic services.

    ‘The Government must now move to expel and remove any members of the Communist Party from our Consuls throughout China. They can either serve the UK or the Chinese Communist Party. They cannot do both.’

    Now, I would be remiss, and somewhat of a fool to think that this sort of infiltration is not going on in OUR country as well.  Not as pervasive, perhaps, but just as dangerous.  China just bought a piece of land, 180 thousand acres in Texas.  They are putting up a wind farm there…and what else, under that cover?  It has drilled the longest horizontal well in the Permian Basin in West Texas. And it has unique ownership. Surge Energy is the first U.S. shale producer wholly-owned by Chinese investors.  We’ve all heard the phrase “American soil”, right?  Are we in the process of losing that soil?   NPR had a piece on May 27, 2019, on All Things Considered covering that.

    Those are two words that are commonly used to stir up patriotic feelings. They are also words that can’t be taken for granted, because today nearly 30 million acres of U.S. farmland are held by foreign investors. That number has doubled in the past two decades.  When the stock market tanked during the past recession, foreign investors began buying up big swaths of U.S. farmland.  There are no federal restrictions on the amount of land that can be foreign owned, it’s been left up to states to decide on any limitations.  It’s likely that more American land will end up in foreign hands, especially in states with no restrictions on ownership. With the median age of U.S. farmers at 55, many face retirement with no prospect of family members willing to take over. The National Young Farmers Coalition anticipates that two-thirds of the nation’s farmland will change hands in the next few decades.
