I believe that the main objective for firing FBI-director Comey is to distract us from what is really going on. At least Alex Jones´ fans can all cheer that Trump is really beginning to “make America great again”.
What could the elite possibly don´t want us to find out…?

President Trump nominated Elaine L. Chao (born in Taiwan) to Secretary of Transportation, which the Senate confirmed by a vote of 93-6 (her husband Senator Mitch McConnell didn’t refrain from voting…).
Elaine Chao has earlier served as a Reagan administration official and secretary of labor in the George W. Bush cabinets (from 2001 to 2009). Elaine Chao is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
The trail of drugs trafficking, money laundering, leads to Elaine L. Chao and back to Donald Trump, George Bush, the Clintons and Henry Kissinger: http://letsrollforums.com//drugs-fun...rs-t32188.html

Elaine’s father, James S.C. Chao, was a classmate at Jiao Tong University of Jiang Zemin, the president of China in the ’90s. They have kept in touch ever since.
Through James Chao, Elaine and Mitch McConnell met Jiang several times, both in Beijing and Washington. When Jiang visited the White House in 1997, he met privately with Elaine and Mitch McConnell, before a state dinner hosted by President Clinton; Senator McConnell again met Jiang the next morning.
In 1999, Elaine and Mitch appeared at the University of Louisville with Chinese Ambassador Li Zhaoxing.

When James Chao emigrated from Taiwan to the USA, upon settling in New York, he founded the Foremost Maritime Corporation. Foremost transports goods to China and buys its ships from the China State Shipbuilding Corporation.
Senator Mitch McConnell’s ties to the Chao family go back to the late 1980s, when James Chao began donating to his campaigns. In 1993, McConnell married Elaine Chao.
In April 2008, James Chao gave Elaine and Mitch $5 to $25 million to help the McConnells get over the dip in their stock portfolio after the financial crisis earlier that year. The generous gift made McConnell one of the wealthiest in the Senate, with an estimated net worth of $22.8 million.

In 1989, Elaine asked John Huang to raise money for Republican senators. In 1993, Huang, then head of the Lippo Bank (based in Indonesia), arranged a coalition of Chinese banks and individuals to sponsor Chao’s visit to Los Angeles as the new head of United Way.
Huang also gave McConnell $2,000 in illegal donations as part of a foreign money-laundering scheme.
Elaine has been a director for Protective Life Corp., which owns 50% of CRC Protective Life Insurance. Lippo co-owns the rest of the Hong Kong-based insurance company with China Resources Holdings Co., a front company for China’s People Liberation Army.
Lippo is controlled by the Riady family and was at the centre of the Clinton “Chinagate” fundraising scandal. Lippo´s chief executive James T. Riady pled guilty to a felony charge for illegally donating to the campaign of Bill Clinton.

One of Elaine’s patrons was Maurice “Hank” Greenberg.
Greenberg is chairman and chief executive of the New York-based American International Group (AIG), which does a lot of business in China.
Greenberg and AIG, through its employee PAC, have donated thousands of dollars to Mitch McConnell’s campaigns. Mitch also received large sums for speeches for AIG.
AIG has also hired Henry A. Kissinger, for his connections (including in China).

Chao also served on the board of directors for Bloomberg Philanthropies, the foundation started by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Elaine served as studies advisor to Heritage as well. Bloomberg gave Heritage $180,000 in 1998 and at least $100,000 a year for more than a decade through his Starr Foundation for writing favourably about trading with China: http://www.wnd.com/2016/11/trump-sho...s-elaine-chao/

The China connection (again) leads to Henry Kissinger.
Kissinger has visited China more than 80 times since his first clandestine 1971 trip.
After Donald Trump became US president elect, Kissinger swiftly visited Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Kissinger was amongst a select group of US experts that met Xi in February 2012 before he became president.
Other Americans on this short list were former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and… Elaine Chao: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...iend-kissinger

Now for the shocking stuff…
In August 2014, the ship “Ping May” of the Foremost Maritime Corporation of daddy Chao was in Santa Marta en route to the Netherlands.
Before it could leave the port, Colombian inspectors discovered, amidst its load of coal, approximately 40 kilograms (about ninety pounds) of cocaine in 40 separate packages

The following photo shows James Chao (second from right), at the christening of the “Ping May” in Shanghai.



Elaine Chao has also served on the board of Wells Fargo, one of the biggest banks in the world.
In 2012, Wells Fargo paid a $175 million settlement after it was accused of charging higher fees and rates to minority borrowers (maybe not of Chinese origins…) than to white borrowers with the same “credit risk”.
Even more interesting is that in 2010, Wachovia – purchased by Wells Fargo in 2008 – paid a settlement of $160 million for laundering over $100 million in drugs money for “Mexican and Colombian drug cartels” (I didn’t know that Bush, Clinton and Kissinger are Mexican Columbians…).
The bank admitted that it had failed to “apply the proper anti-laundering strictures” regarding the handling of $378.4 billion in currency exchanges with Mexico between 2004 and 2007.

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, the big banks received huge government bailouts (Wells Fargo got $25 billion from the US government).
According to the UN, proceeds from the global drug trade was “the only liquid investment capital” that ultimately helped keep Wells Fargo and other banks afloat.
Wells Fargo also profited, and continues to profit, at the other end of the “war on drug” as a major investor in the prison-industrial complex, specifically with heavy investments in the GEO Group, the second largest private prison company in the USA: http://www.alternet.org/economy/whats-wrong-wells-fargo

Here is Henry Kissinger with President Donald Trump a couple of days ago (discussing drugs trafficking and money laundering?).
