Chinese Buying US/Canada Food Resources

We have come to regurgitate whatever the establishment tells us to believe:

-"We can't deport all the illegal aliens that are in the US" (Has anyone told us why exactly it is that we can't?)

-"Democracies are there to help the people" (Democracies or Republics are instituted to protect Life, Liberty and Property - not to just be naively trusted to function properly forever)

I always loved this one;

-"Well, we want the Chinese to be as prosperous as we are. That way, they will soon start buy our products"

In responses to the latter, my questions were simply "Do we? and "Will they?".

The people have come to parrot whatever position they are told in the right one. It seemed that hardly anyone wondered if the Chinese would be willing to just start spending their money to buy products that were manufactured in the US. OK, maybe a few luxury items for the rich, but the Han do not operate with the understanding that every business decision should be a win-win, with both sides getting a comparable level of benefit.*

*From Montesquieu's The Spirit of the Laws:

"It is very remarkable that the Chinese, whose lives are guided by rites, are nevertheless the greatest cheats upon earth.....He who buys of them ought to carry his own weights, every merchant [Of theirs] having three sorts, the one heavy for buying, another light for selling, and another of the true standard for those who are upon their guard....[The Climate] that has given to the Chinese an inconceivable greediness for gain China they are suffered to deceive"

It does turn out, however, that the Chinese are in fact eager to buy some stuff from Americans and Canadians. Brazil and Australia are also in their sights.

What they are buying is the food supply of Western nations.

"With too few farms in China to feed a burgeoning population, Chinese immigrants have started buying up agricultural lands in Canada and shipping produce to Asia.

But with new investment comes fears that a generation of young Canadian would-be farmers are being squeezed out of the market by newcomers that some suspect are being bankrolled by the government in Beijing.

In Saskatchewan province, home to 45 percent of all arable land in Canada, the price of farmland has risen an average of 10 percent in the last year, and as much as 50 percent over three years in areas where Chinese immigrants have settled, according to farmer Ian Hudson, who lives near the village of Ogema.

Second link-

"In what could be the largest takeover of a U.S. company by a Chinese company, Chinese meat processor Shuanghui International Holdings has agreed to acquire No. 1 pork producer Smithfield Foods for $4.7 billion.

Smithfield shareholders will receive $34 a share under the deal, a 31% premium over Smithfield's closing stock price of $25.97 on Tuesday. Smithfield shares closed up 28% Wednesday at $33.35.

The companies put the deal's total value at about $7.1 billion, including debt.

Smithfield is the world's largest pork processor and hog producer. It sells packaged products under popular brands such as Farmland, Armour, Cook's and Smithfield."

Third link-
"On a sunny March afternoon, 11 Chinese executives armed with digital cameras and iPads got out of a van on Brazil’s highway BR-163 to photograph soybean-loaded trucks headed to export terminals.

Dressed in jeans and boots, the officials from five state-owned companies that imported 40 percent of China’s soybeans last year had traveled six hours to see the oilseed being moved from farms to ports during a tour organized by Rabobank Groep.

They’re part of a growing contingent scouring the world for farm assets or food technologies that can be brought to the world’s most-populous nation.

China is headed to spend a record this year on food assets and farms after a $32.7 billion splurge in the past five years and just $4.2 billion in the prior half-decade, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

The drive for assets from Brazil to the United States and Australia has ignited concern by lawmakers that has only been heightened by Shuanghui International Holdings’ $4.7 billion deal to buy Smithfield"

Here we are. Our taste for cheap manufactured goods, the Chinese proclivity (Assisted by the failure of our governments to protect our property) to steal our technology on which immeasurable work-hours and money has been spent, and our failure to stop our government from turning us into foreign debt-slaves of the Chinese, has produced its first harvest - and what has been reaped is being sent back to China.

Why are we allowing the colonization of the West? 

The Chinese have a lot of money, a lot of people, and they don't want to drop too heavy a hand on their Asian neighbors - yet. For now, they are using our selfishness and blind trust of our governments against us.

Our farmland will increase in price, making it harder for young people to buy farms and easier for big corporations; we are approaching the era of the latifundia. The independent farmer will be gone, replaced by massive company-owned farms worked by immigrant labor.

Our food prices will rise as more food grown and raised in the US and Canada gets sent to China.

The threat of Japanese cash was never this bad.

Manly people are not aware of this, but the Red Dawn remake that finally made it to the theaters in November of 2010 had undergone marked changes in the plot. It was not originally the North Koreans who invaded the US - it was China. Vigorous protests by the Chinese government, along with the threat to prohibit the showing of the movie in China and whatever revenues that would bring, were sufficient for the company to make major changes to the work. I personally suspect that Quislings in our own government also did the bidding of Beijing and influenced the producers. Perhaps the Chinese have not ruled out the possibility of forcibly entering a severely weakened US to protect their "assets" and to collect the rest of what we owe from all the treasury bonds Obama begged them to buy.

[Added 6/23/13- I should have noted that the Red Dawn remake also had the bizarre twist of the Russians playing a part in the invasion of the US. For crying out loud; the Great Game is long over, as is the Cold War. Why do we still think that the Russians want to come all the way over here to help take us over? If anything, the expansion (Rather than a reduction) of NATO to include former Warsaw Pact nations probably have the Russians fearing what we may want to do. We were rightfully made to look like fools when the a tiny fragment of the Russian army rolled over Georgian forces trying to control Russian-majority territories  I wonder if there is some sub-strategy going on that requires that we continue to force Russia to think of the US as an enemy. It is as if the US is being set up for a future of foreign domination at the hands of another country that felt that it had no option other than to eliminate us as a potential rival]

A couple of years ago in the US, a traveling museum exhibit of archaeological finds, including the famous Tarim Basin mummies, was shot to pieces due to threats from Beijing. The mummies are believed by many to be those of the Tocharians (Or Tokarians), an Indo-European speaking people who (Very early) migrated Eastward and survived as a distinct people with their own language until around the 7th-8th centuries AD. The Chinese were not about letting evidence of a people closely related to Western and Eastern Europeans, with fabrics having the style and look of something out of the Scottish Highlands, being shown to have existed in what is now modern China for thousands of years. Genetic data from these mummies has shown that their Y-DNA matches that which is associated with many Indo-Europeans. Even ancient Chinese artwork depicts these people, with European features and red/light brown/blond hair, but this is not to be discussed, nor will the West be allowed to make this fact known. The Chinese don't like the fact that this event occurred, so it will be kept under wraps.

At what point will enough be enough for you?
