    For those that don’t already know, Senate Minority Leader and current Establishment GOP figurehead Mitch McConnell is, through his wife and her shipping company, deeply involved with the Red Chinese. Like deeply, deeply involved. As Peter Schweizer exposed in his book, Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win:

    “While Senator Feinstein has been remarkably pro-Beijing in her public statements about China, Senator McConnell has been more balanced. But let there be no doubt: the senator from Kentucky and his wife enjoy some of the deepest and most abiding ties to Beijing-linked entities of anyone in Washington, D.C.”

    “The Chao family first started ordering ships from China in 1990. After that 1993 visit with Senator McConnell, their partnership blossomed. From 2001 to 2011, Foremost received ten mammoth ships from Chinese state-controlled shipbuilders.”

    “In short, the Chinese government is building the Chaos’ ships, financing their construction, and providing crews and customers for the family. Who exactly is CSSC, which plays such a central role in the financial fortunes of the McConnell-Chao family? CSSC is a state-owned defense conglomerate, and also one of “the world’s most prolific builders of large surface combatants and submarines.” The Chaos’ family business is interested in civilian not military shipping. But in China, the two are deeply intertwined. Daniel Alderman of Defense Group Inc. and Rush Doshi of Harvard University wrote of China’s shipbuilding industry generally and CSSC specifically that the Chinese government “views civilian shipbuilding as essential to and intertwined with military shipbuilding.” They say, “China’s promotion and protection of advanced civilian facilities are likely related to its military purposes.”

    “Senator McConnell has spoken out about Beijing’s military expansion and human rights, but has been leery of legislation that would restrict commerce with China. He has long supported the view that free trade would mean a freer China. But there can be little doubt that the McConnell-Chao family business fortunes could be disrupted overnight if Beijing looked with too much disfavor at the policy positions he takes toward China.”

    So, former President Donald Trump, one of the few willing to go out on a limb and call out RINO Mitch McConnell’s Chinese connections, decided to prank the RINO Senator as a way of drawing attention to his Red China ties.

    What’d he do? He had a massive shipping container, full of miniature Chinese soldier toys and toy Chinese warships, delivered right to Mitch McConnell’s front door, having it dropped in his yard. Further, the entire shipping container was painted with large Chinese flags and each side of it had a large QR code plastered on. Scanning it took viewers to a website Trump had set up that discussed Mitch McConnell’s China ties and why it’s dangerous for a top Senator to be so closely involved with the Red Chinese military.

    Now that DeSantis has officially put himself in the presidential race, who will you be voting for?(Required)
