Secret Empires: How Mitch McConnell and Ellen Chao Used Political Power to Make Their Family Rich

Larry Getlen at the New York Post reveals more details from Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends, the upcoming book from Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer.

In 2004, current Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, current US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, had an average net worth of $3.1 million. Ten years later, that number had increased to somewhere between $9.2 million and $36.5 million.

One source of the windfall, according to a new book from Peter Schweizer, was a 2008 gift from Chao’s father, James Chao, for somewhere between $5 million and $25 million. But this gift could be seen as more than just a gift. It may have been acquired, according to Schweizer, thanks to the couple’s fealty to China, the source of the Chao family fortune. And that fealty may have occurred at the expense of the nation they had pledged to serve.

My comments: The evidence is overwhelming. Our elites who rule over us are totally corrupt and self-serving. These elites have no interest in ‘serving’ the American people with Justice and Concern. The corruption is now so evident that anyone with a smidgen of common sense can discern that our SYSTEM is totally corrupt. Electing new elites can not improve the SYSTEM. We now need to collapse this corrupt system and decentralize all political and economic decision-making. This needs to happen NOW!

 

The idea that the LAW rules over our corrupt elites is impossible to reconcile with reality. These elites create their own LAWS (and interpretations) to further their self-serving interests. Attorney’s can manipulate our LAWS with legal spin and emotional rhetoric. All the written LAWS (new or old) will not improve this corrupt SYSTEM which we live with. We now need to collapse this corrupt SYSTEM and decentralize all decision-making. We also need to rid this planet of all imaginary money which allows these elites to further their corruption. Read my prior missive on eliminating money from this planet!

 

Think about what is happening within our governmental SYSTEM. Listen to the media where honest Americans speak out. Can any of this corruption be solved with NEW elites and NEW laws? I don’t think so! Power corrupts and BIG power corrupts absolutely. We need to DECENTRALIZE all power and allow the common man to administer our commerce and political decision-making. Nothing will change until our economy turns SOUTH. Corruption is allowed to continue as long as the people have money to spend. It’s human nature to ignore the problems until the problem hits each individual personally.

 

When our economy and the stock markets collapse (soon coming), then we can get some emotion from the American people for meaningful change. Money rules over peoples sentiments. Until our economy turns SOUTH and the digital markets collapse (soon coming), nothing will get resolved. Survival depends on pumping up these corrupt stock and bond markets to cover-up all the political corruption. Our Central banks are now the real problem. Change can not happen until our corrupt financial system collapses. I sense that this will happen in 2018.

 

We now live with a SYSTEM which is totally corrupt and dysfunctional. Power corrupts and BIG power corrupts completely. The American political SYSTEM is our problem. It is obvious to me. People need to withhold all support for this corrupt SYSTEM. This can be done by refusing to VOTE for any new politicians. None of these politicians follow our Constitution or our laws. Power has corrupted the SYSTEM and our DEEP STATE has corrupted the entire system. We MUST collapse the entire SYSTEM. Think for yourself. I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.
