Want to know why we have so many johnny-come-lately Trump bashers? Follow the money…like most everything else in Washington D.C., second only to power. And I admit, it is almost impossible to maintain your integrity with everyone bowing and scraping at your feet, telling you how great you are, and of course, then asking for a favor, money, or influence. But I digress.
Let’s look at McConnell, probably the highest profile johnny-come-lately Trump basher. His wife, Elaine Chao, former Transportation Secretary is heavily tied to China. Breitbart senior contributor fills in the details. “That relationship was forged in December of 1993 when James Chao, Elaine Chao’s father, Elaine Chao, and the new son-in-law, Senator Mitch McConnell, visited Beijing, China, at the invitation of the China state shipbuilding corporation. This was a coup to Beijing because Tiananmen square had happened just four years earlier. Very few high officials went there. The result of that meeting and the deals that followed is that today the Chinese government finances the construction of the ships for the shipbuilding company, they build the ships, they provide the crews for the ship, and they provide the cargo for the ship. So, the Chinese government could pull the plug tomorrow on this business.”
Trump has been putting America first for his entire administration and China is one of the primary targets. This isn’t good for the Chao family owned business, Foremost Group, sporting 33 huge container/bulk material ships.
So Mitch is submissive to Trump with Mitch’s wife in the Cabinet until it became clear that no court was going to hear the mountains of evidence of fraud, ballot stuffing, and rigging in the 2020 election, all against President Trump. So here goes the dive. Elaine quits shortly after Jan. 6. McConnell begins passing the word that Trump should be impeached. But hold on. In December 2020 the House Oversight Committee began an investigation into the closely held Foremost Group and whether Elaine Chao acted improperly to benefit herself or her family’s shipping company. BTW, can you guess where Foremost Group shipped most of their cargo to and from? Don’t get ahead of me. Yep, China. I haven’t been able to find out if this investigation has been dropped but my guess is it has. “The New York Times (I don’t read it) and Politico (nor this one) have reported that Chao may have used her Cabinet position to benefit the company and increase its influence…”
When you see and hear all the hype about Mitch, his agreement with convicting Trump in a Senate trial, and now rumors of his encouragement for more senators to fall in line with him, you at least know the reason. If Trump isn’t completely silenced he will come back to haunt Mitch and his ties to China. Follow the money.
