Where's the Beef!

More news that you will not get from the mainstream media. President Trump just made a bilateral trade agreement to ship US Beef to feed China. For the first time in 13 years American beef will find hungry Chinks. Beef with Broccoli and Beef with Oyster Sauce are now back in Column One. American Farmers are estatic because of course in another hour they will be hungry again and buy more!

It was a bi-lateral trade agreement negotiated by the Trump Administration and not part of some bureaucratic Trans Pacific partnership bullshit handle by globalist cucks. Of course the media will not report this on the evening news or the cable shows. It is just millions or maybe a billion dollars worth of trade to offset our trade deficit with China. Simply through negotiations.

From The Daily Caller:

American beef producers are ecstatic at the chance to sell meat to new markets in China under President Donald Trump’s bi-lateral trade agreement announced Thursday.
The trade deal will open Chinese markets for American beef by July, allowing American producers to export meat for the first time in 13 years.
“After being locked out of the world’s largest market for 13 years, we strongly welcome the announcement that an agreement has been made to restore U.S. beef exports to China,” the National Cattleman’s Beef Association said in a statement.
China banned U.S. beef in 2003 after it discovered imported meat contaminated with mad cow disease. American beef exports dropped from $3 billion to $1.1 billion by 2004, but the market has since recovered to pre-2003 levels without exporting to China.

I love pom pom girls. Many find them vapid, but I think they are just perfect for me.

Coupla questions. Are we still going to subsidize the ranchers who've struck this bonanza?
What is going o happen to the price of beef here?

I am going to pass on any Travelzoo "deals" for travel packages to China.

That's encouraging, Troop, but I've also seen evidence that China is buying American farm land, feedlots and grain elevators. Some of the meat going to China could already be owned by them. It's been said that one in four hogs raised in the U.S. is owned by the Chinese WH Group.

I don't remember it always being so easy for foreigners to acquire American farm land. I'm almost glad the Midwest has so many smelly hog confinements to discourage Islamic investors. The Saudis are investing in Southwest farm land to grow hay to feed to their dairy herds back home.

None of this is Trump's fault and I don't know what he could do to stop it or if he even should or could at this point. I see more foreign ownership and influence over American agriculture coming.
