Tricky Treats: Is This Mitch McConnell’s Idea of “Affordable Health Care”?

As the off-year elections approach, with the GOP projected to take control of the Senate, Senate Majority Leader-to-be Mitch McConnell’s family is in the news for the wrong reasons. (Most of McConnell’s fortune apparently comes from his in-laws.) His father-in-law (James Chao) has prospered because of his founding and proprietorship of a shipping line, The Foremost Group. That company has an opaque structure, with many of its ships registered in countries that make compliance with maritime regulations easier to skirt. Now, one of Foremost’s ships (the Ping May) has been busted sailing from Colombia for Amsterdam with 40 kilograms of cocaine aboard. How much of Foremost’s largesse (and, by extension, the McConnell clan’s wealth) is derived from shady enterprises?

The Dutch/German pilot who ran the flight school through which 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta and his German and Austrian associates infiltrated the United States has been arrested in Houston for drug trafficking. It remains to be seen what comes of this investigation, but the implications are potentially staggering.


The Iran-Contra Scandal, the Killing of Judge Vance and the Don Siegelman Case

The victim of a GOP political frame-up courtesy of Karl Rove and company, former Alabama governor Don Siegelman’s legal troubles actually had their genesis with the cover-up of the Iran-Contra scandal and the Christic Institute’s suit against some of the conspirators. According to Way Madsen Report and the Legtal Schnauzer blog, Siegelman began investigating some of the intelligence community’s drug and arms smuggling airlines in the early 1980’s while serving as Alabama Attorney General. A current federal federal judge, Mark Fuller, was allegedly hired to keep the lid on the operation.
Central to this analysis is the mail-bomb assassination of Judge Robert Vance, Siegelman’s former law partner.
