During a conversation with Fox News host Sean Hannity about the threat of China on his show last week, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) said that America deserves a country that doesn't act like a "dimwit."
Hannity praised Noem for banning Chinese-owned social media app TikTok on state devices and for taking steps to ban Chinese entities from buying land in South Dakota.
“We’ve been aggressive on fighting this threat that President Biden will not address,” said Noem.
She noted that farming is South Dakota's number one industry and that China is trying to gain ownership of it for nefarious purposes.
“I’ve been in food security policy for many, many years, over 20 years," she said. "I’ve seen China buy up our fertilizer companies, our chemical companies, they’ve bought up our processing systems, now they’re buying our land. And they’re doing it to destroy us.”
Noem pledged to ensure that doesn't happen.
“We will make sure our land stays under the United States’ control, and we won’t allow enemies that hate us to come in and purchase our assets.”
“And it’s time we get a president that wises up, loves this country, defends us, and stops acting like a dimwit in front of the whole world,” Noem added.
Biden is desperately trying to avoid his failures with China, the border, the economy, and Afghanistan this week by taking a surprise trip to Ukraine, where he hasn't yet managed to fail completely.
“One year later, Kyiv stands,” Biden declared after meeting with Zelenskyy at Mariinsky Palace. He went on, “And Ukraine stands. Democracy stands. The Americans stand with you, and the world stands with you.”
There's still room for failure in the U.S.'s aid to Ukraine, however. If a big chunk of the more than $100 billion the U.S. has given to Ukraine for security and humanitarian aid ends up in corrupt leaders' hands, it could be very bad for both countries.
If Russia gets tired of U.S. indirect involvement, that nation could decide to use a nuclear weapon and cause mass destruction in Ukraine or in the U.S.
Biden also seems to be avoiding going to East Palestine, Ohio where a train derailed two weeks ago and officials burned toxic chemicals to avoid having them cause an explosion.
The mayor of East Palestine, Trent Conaway, called Biden's visit to Ukraine "the biggest slap in the face" that showed "he doesn't care about us."
