You think you just elected a bunch of Tea Party supported politicians dedicated to effecting real change, but did you?

Remember Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate who just today said the GOP's highest priority is to make sure Barack Obama is a one term President?

His wife is Elaine Chao, a Taiwanese immigrant. She held Cabinet level positions throughout the Bush administration. Here's her back-story, the one you won't hear reported on Fox.


Elaine Chao's father, James S.C. Chao, was a school friend of China's President Jiang Zemin at Shanghai's Jiao Tong University in Shanghai. He remains in regular contact with President Jiang. James Chao escaped to Taiwan, moved on to the United States, where he was joined by his family, including Elaine, then 8. He now lives between New York and Shanghai as founder of the highly successful ship brokerage and agency Foremost Maritime Corp. It does most of its business with the Beijing government.

Elaine Chao is married to Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and also was director of an insurance company that jointly owns a Lippo Group subsidiary with the Chinese government. Lippo, it may be recalled, is controlled by the Riady family and was at the center of the Clintons' Chinagate fundraising scandal.
U.S. Senate documents made public in 2001 showed Mitch McConnell's wife, Elaine, had been, for the preceding four years, a board member of the Birmingham, Ala.-based Protective Life Corp., holding 7,000 shares. Protective Life is associated with Chinese insurance companies in Indonesia and China, including China Resources Holdings Co., an intelligence-gathering front for China's PLA.

If there is an (R) after their names the Tea Party folks don't give a flying fu-tootie what they do....now had there been a (D) after those names we would have a full-on Tea Party riot (and another round of outrageous conspiracy theories, etc) on our hands.

You should vote for him if you can and if not you should donate to his campaign!!!!
