Today it is unofficially announced that Elaine Chao will be nominated as President Donald Trump’s Transportation Secretary.
President-elect Donald Trump plans to nominate former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao to head the Transportation Department, a source with knowledge of the decision said on Tuesday. (link)
To understand the nomination we must remind ourselves of the real opposition to any America-First policy agenda.
Trump’s real enemy in his battle to replace the influence of Wall Street and K-Street is best exemplified within the U.S. Chamber of Commerce;… and more specifically by understanding U.S. CoC President Tom Donohue;… and even more specifically by understanding who Donohue pays off and uses to push his agenda, Senator Mitch McConnell.
For far too many years conservatives, ordinary Americans, have not fully grasped the usurpation within those who are professionally Republican. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is the primary usurpation agent, the snake within the body politic; the representative personification of all that is corrupt on one side of the UniParty. The symbiosis between McConnell and Donohue has been toxic to America’s interests.
The UniParty’s intentional shifting of the balance of power into the Senate is known very well by many political junkies on the freedom side of the political continuum. We have been grinding our teeth the issue ever since state legislatures lost the ability to appoint their federal Senate representatives, and the popular vote usurped the intent of the Constitution.
All of that said, Donald Trump is having to position his/our America-First agenda against the headwinds of these progressive and Machiavellian constructs and consorts.
Tom Donohue (supreme financier), Senator Mitch McConnell and his Senate GOPe cohorts (Cornyn, Cochran, Thune, Hatch et al) are Trump’s, and by extension, our, adversaries.
President Elect Donald Trump wants infrastructure investment to rebuild America. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce views this approach as an existential threat to their Wall Street globalist agenda; they prefer a weaker America based on outsourcing – their road map for the past 30 years; there are trillions at stake.
Under Trumps economic revitalization plan, and the larger economic strategies therein, there are multi-hundred billion rebuilding and domestic investment proposals. Within this stage of necessary construction the Transportation Secretary position is critical.
Enter the world of four-dimensional strategy and foresight to see around corners.
Elaine Chao is Mitch McConnell’s wife. Any domestic infrastructure spending bill that McConnell will oppose becomes oppositional to his wife’s interests, goals, objectives and legacy, not just President Trump. That’s starting point number one.
Unfortunately, too many DC insiders (the professional political class, politicians and the media) read these research conversations, so I proceed with that caution in mind….
In addition, as Secretary of Transportation Mrs. Chao will be engaged in multi-state massive negotiations and expenditure proposals. Multiple big influence meetings, luncheons, dinners etc await the schedule over the next 24 months. Mr. McConnell, as a natural condition of his relationship, will be a part of that travel schedule.
Any time McConnell spends outside of DC smoke-filled-room meetings, is a better time for Trump to engage in the more purposeful golf-outings, meetings and casual encounters. At this level, it’s just the way titan negotiations play out.
