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?

Falling to Earth: September 11th Flight School Operator Rudi Dekkers Arrested for Drug Trafficking

Long able to escape legal ret­ri­bu­tion for his actions, Huff­man Avi­a­tion oper­a­tor Rudi Dekkers appears to have run out of luck. 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.
