Heartless Monster

Many people portray former United States President Barack Obama as a great man. Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson recently condemned him as a “heartless monster.” Carlson is more right than he realizes.

On October 23, Obama was campaigning in Virginia for Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe. Criticizing the opposing nominee and conservatives in general, he said, “We don’t have time to be wasting on these phony, trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage that right-wing media pedals to juice their ratings—and the fact that he’s willing to go along with it? Instead of talking about serious problems that actually affect serious people? That’s a shame. That’s not what this election is about.”

What is the “phony, trumped-up” fakery that Obama was setting us straight on? The outrage of Virginians and people across the country at a school board that covered for a student rapist—who then apparently raped again.

America’s Farms

If America cannot pay its debts with dollars, it will have to pay them in assets.

Across the United States, farmland is being gobbled up by foreign businesses. The most recent report on foreign land ownership by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows that foreigners owned 35.2 million acres of U.S. agricultural land as of Dec. 31, 2019. This is 2.7 percent of all privately held agricultural land and 1.5 percent of all land in the United States. That’s a 60 percent increase from a decade earlier when foreigners owned about 22.2 million acres.

British, Canadian, Dutch, Italian and German investors own the largest amount of U.S. farmland, but authoritarian regimes like China are also buying up land in America. The Chinese own about 192,000 agricultural acres in the U.S., worth about $1.9 billion. And China would like to buy more. An official Chinese Communist Party food security initiative, published in 2013, encourages Chinese companies to gain greater control over agricultural supply chain imports by buying farmland in foreign countries. That is why China has already purchased Smithfield Foods, the world’s biggest pork producer, and is attempting to purchase Syngenta, the world’s third-biggest seed supplier.
