(RepublicanWire.org) – Governor Noem of South Dakota came out swinging against President Joe Biden during a recent appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity.” During that appearance, she hammered President Biden for “acting like a dimwit” and skewered his administration for allowing Chinese businesses and CCP-affiliated individuals to buy up US farmland.

Speaking on the matter to Hannity, Noem first explained how her state is tackling the Chinese land-buying issue, saying “I’ve done an executive order that has said that we won’t do state contracts, and telecommunications companies will not do business in South Dakota that affiliate themselves with China as well. So we’ve been aggressive on fighting this threat that President Biden will not address.  I’ve got a bill I’m working with a couple of legislators in South Dakota to ban China from being able to buy up our farmland.”

Continuing, Governor Noem then addressed why the land issue is so important. Specifically, she explained that the Chinese are trying to buy up farmland near the future home of the B-21 stealth bombers, which could be a major problem for the United States Air Force in the event of war and would enable their surveillance and espionage operations inside the United States. In her words:

“Agriculture is our number one industry in our state, but we also are the home of Ellsworth Air Force Base. Ellsworth is going to be the home of the B-21s, the next generation bombers that will protect the United States of America for many, many years to come, and China would love to set up shop next door and conduct surveillance on that platform, and we won’t allow it.”

She then emphasized the massive extent of the problem, exposing the multitude of strategic assets that the Red Chinese are buying up. In her words:

“We’ll make sure that our land stays under the United States control and that we won’t allow enemies that hate us to come in and to purchase our assets. I’ve been in food security policy for many, many years. Over 20 years, I’ve seen China buy our fertilizer companies, our chemical companies. They’ve bought up our processing systems.”

And that’s when she got to ripping Biden for being a “dimwit,” saying “Now, they’re buying our land, and they’re doing it to destroy us, 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.”

She added that Biden has lied to Americans on matters related to China, saying “This is the kind of deception we have going on with our administration. They’ve lied to the American people, covered it up. They’ve gone around governors, and not communicated to us. And frankly, I believe, they shot this balloon down over the water because they wanted to be able to decide what was onboard that balloon, and if some of it was lost at sea, that they didn’t want us to ever know about, that was an easy narrative that they could sell to us that they could keep as much quiet as they felt they wanted to.”

Noem wasn’t the only Governor to blast Biden on Hannity. Gov. Glenn Youngkin of Virginia did so as well, saying:

“[China’s] going to use every ounce of capability they have. Surveillance through balloons and TikTok. Economic coercion by trying to infiltrate with relationships and joint ventures that push them into our economy to enrich their Communist Party-controlled companies. And they’re going to try to intimidate us with their military presence. This is a moment to be strong and swift, not weak and slow.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem found a way to roast both President Joe Biden and a CNN+ producer in one tweet after the network’s premium service was shut down.

CNN producer Ellie Smith took to Twitter Thursday warning people against tweeting “something snarky” following the network’s subscription service being canceled after less than one month, leaving “hundreds” out of a job, and called for people to “be kind.”

“PSA if you’re going to tweet something snarky about CNN+, hundreds of journalists and technicians who did nothing but work their tails off just had the rug pulled out from under them,” Smith tweeted. “So be kind.”

Gov. Noem responded to the tweet that those employees aren’t the only ones who lost a job, noting the thousands, not hundreds, who found themselves out of work after Biden revoked the permit for the $9 billion Keystone XL pipeline on his first day in office.

“Now you know how the Keystone XL Pipeline workers feel,” Noem’s tweet read.

Fox Business cited a study from the State Department that found a total of 26,100 indirect and direct jobs would have come from the project, through its construction and supply chain across several states.
