China’s Land Buys Near Military Bases Blocked By MO Gov.

A new law in Missouri makes it illegal for persons or organizations with ties to China to buy farmland near military bases.

In a statement released by his office, Republican Missouri Governor Mike Parson banned the acquisition of property within ten miles of any vital military installations by any organization associated with the CCP.

Legislators are worried that Beijing is engaging in American soil espionage because of the number of businesses with Chinese parent companies that possess or want to acquire property near U.S. military facilities.

In a statement, Parson addressed the growing concerns about foreign powers’ ownership of Missouri farmland, particularly China. He emphasized the need to protect our military and intelligence assets, avoid security threats to Missouri, and provide Missourians more peace of mind. Any individual or organization the US government has labeled as an enemy foreign power is likewise subject to Parson’s executive order.

Reports indicate that a 333-thousand-square-foot factory is planned to be developed in Kansas, near Fort Leavenworth and Whiteman Air Force Base. This plant is owned by Cnano Technology USA, a subsidiary of C-Nano Technology, which is, in turn, owned by Cnano Jiangsu Technology, a Chinese entity.

An official document from Cnano Jiangsu states that the business is committed to CCP ideology and backs the idea of integrating Party-building and corporate governance. The business is engaged in many initiatives that are seen as attempts to steal American technology, and it employs many members of the CCP.

Gotion High-Tech, a wholly owned subsidiary of CCP, is a battery manufacturing corporation with many locations in the United States with future plans to open even more. Despite widespread displeasure, blue state politicians like Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer embrace Gotion into their states.

When it came to prohibiting hostile foreign organizations like China from holding agricultural property in the state, Arkansas was the pioneer.

Due to national security concerns, Gov. Sarah Sanders (R-AR) revealed last October during a news conference that the state had directed Syngenta, the CCP-owned Agri Chemical Company, to sell its land holdings in Arkansas.
