It sounds like they now can, yes.
That's great, because as I recall, we rely on others (China) for much of our rare earth supplies.
Being so dependent on China, or anyone else for that matter, isn't good.
We have to sacrifice something to get what we need.

They're used in many technologies.
The greedy are an international lot. They're not nearly as dependent on America as they once were. If they make money at the expense of the American economy, they think, so be it.
Even when they do something that makes them money and boosts the American economy at the same time, it's built on a false foundation. The props inevitably get kicked out from under it... They get bailed out... And they still make money.
If money changes hands, in any way shape or form, the wealthy make money at the expense of the rest of us. It's a repeating pattern.
Trickle Down Economics isn't even a slow drip. It's tax supported welfare for the wealthy. Crooks.

Yes but, this allows them to harm our economy. Rare earth elements are used in all technology. We need rare earth elements to make weapons for self defense.

I saw that in one of your earlier posts.
I haven't heard anything new on that either.
China, and others, are buying up all sorts of things in America, from real estate to businesses. It's like we're having a going out of business sale.
Greed incarnate is running the Country.
Greed doesn't care where the money comes from, or consequences. So long as it gets it's cut of the deal.

We had a rare earth element plant running for a while. It reopened but, China is attempting to steal it. I can't get an update on this.
