Missouri Governor Mike Parson

While the Radical Leftists are trying to destroy America, there are patriots across the nation working hard to save it. And they are doing everything they can to fight back against the Radical agenda of the Left.

And now a Republican governor made a bold move that left Democrats scratching their heads.

In a decisive move aimed at safeguarding national security, Missouri Governor Mike Parson issued an executive order on Tuesday prohibiting the purchase of agricultural land near military facilities by foreign entities from countries designated as American adversaries.

This bold step comes amidst growing concerns across the nation regarding the potential threat posed by land purchases made by foreign actors, particularly Chinese companies, near critical military installations.

With Missouri boasting several major military bases, including Rosecrans Air National Guard Base, Whiteman Air Force Base, and Fort Leonard Wood, Parson’s order directly addresses these anxieties.

“With heightened concerns regarding ownership of Missouri farm land by foreign adversaries, especially China, we are signing this order to safeguard our military and intelligence assets, prevent security threats to our state, and give Missourians greater peace of mind,” Parson declared.

“When it comes to China and other foreign adversaries, we must take commonsense precautions that protect Missourians and our security resources.”

The order bars entities from China, Russia, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela from purchasing agricultural land within a 10-mile radius of Missouri’s military facilities.

This proactive approach echoes similar measures enacted by states like Arkansas and Florida, highlighting the national level of concern regarding foreign land ownership near vital national security assets.

While Parson acknowledged the existing ownership of approximately 42,596 acres of Missouri farmland by Chinese entities, his order effectively prevents any future purchases within the designated buffer zones.

Furthermore, any future foreign land purchase, regardless of nationality, will require approval from the Missouri Department of Agriculture, adding an extra layer of scrutiny and oversight.

However, Parson clarified that his focus remains on protecting national security without impeding economic opportunities.

“Missouri must remain open for business to our allies,” he emphasized.

“We believe this order, with the authority we have, sufficiently protects Missouri’s security interests from potential bad actors while not punishing our allies for being good economic partners or upstanding individuals fleeing oppression and coming to our nation legally in search of a better life.”

Republican lawmakers in Missouri have voiced strong support for Parson’s executive order, with some indicating their intention to introduce similar legislation during the upcoming legislative session.

This bipartisan momentum could pave the way for a permanent legal framework further solidifying Missouri’s stance on foreign land ownership near military facilities.

Governor Parson’s decisive action sends a clear message: national security remains paramount in Missouri.

By drawing the line and prioritizing the well-being of its citizens and the integrity of its defense infrastructure, Missouri sets a bold example for other states grappling with the critical issue of foreign land ownership near national security assets.

With the Radical Left doing everything they can to destroy this nation, we must fight back.

We must follow the lead of Governor Parson and take the necessary steps to save America.
