Mark Kelly Owes Complete Disclosure on Chicom Money Influence

Kelly’s communist Chinese business associates don’t much like the idea of armed Americans, either. (Captain Mark Kelly/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “The Chinese government invited then-astronaut Mark Kelly, now an Arizona Democratic Senate candidate, to an all-expenses-paid retreat at a countryside resort in 2003,” The Washington Free Beacon reported Monday. “He left China five days later not only with a future spouse, former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D., Ariz.), but also with lucrative regime business contacts.”

Kelly mingled at that conference with all kinds of Chinese mucky-mucks in foreign service, the economy, and propaganda. NASA, for its part, is playing coy and not addressing whether or not Kelly has exploited the contacts he made while bound by its ethics policies concerning personal enrichment resulting from agency duties.

Funny. I remember when I worked in defense contracting for a satellite navigation and communications company years back, and they got antsy on accepting logo coffee mugs from vendors.

Such “reluctance” on the part of the space agency is not wholly unexpected though, since decades of embedded “progressives” have introduced Democrat priorities to compete with the core mission. In addition to vehicle development and  exploration that had resulted in nation-inspiring and history-changing missions like Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo, tax resources must also be expended on things like politicized “global warming” alarmism of Thunbergian proportions — that and flying Star Trek’s George Takei out to lecture everyone about virtue-signaling “diversity.”

And we wonder why we don’t have Kubrick’s Space Station V and Clavius Base by now.

It’s a Democrat government thing. It’s like giving them money for the Wuhan flu so they can divert it to “free” college and “to each according to his needs” income redistribution. The curious thing is, Kelly’s “most favored” business associates pay equivocal lip service to achieving climate goals decades from now (when, ostensibly, New York City will be under seven feet of water). And forget it on tolerance for Takei.

But back to Kelly and his economic benefactors, who don’t have to worry about domestic cultural revolution struggle sessions when it's they who are violating expectations. You’ll notice we still haven’t gotten much more than equivocation and weasel-wording “on the financial ‘windfall’ his company gained from the Chinese tech giant, Tencent.”

With all the interest in foreign influence in U.S. elections, it’s not out of line to ask how a retired captain with Chinese connections finds himself with “assets worth up to $27 million.” Not that we can expect the propaganda-preferring DSM (Duranty/Streicher Media) to ask very loudly, it at all…

The relationship and the incentives are important to understand for all Americans and for Arizonans in particular, considering trade deals for weapons systems with Taiwan, including Raytheon missile systems made in Tucson and Boeing AH-64 Apache helicopters made in Mesa. If there is one thing that will anger his mainland trading partners more than Dalai Lama posters, it is closer U.S./Taiwan ties. How Kelly intends to balance his personal economic interests with his duties as a senator with the interests of Beijing is something no one seems to be pressing him on – well, almost no one.

There’s one other important point Kelly needs to be pressed on, another area of carrying out policies favored by the Chinese communist government:

China condemns U.S. gun ownership as a human rights violation.

It’s a monopoly of violence thing.

Between Kelly’s citizen disarmament agenda with Gabby, his own campaign goals, and his support of the Biden/Democrat agenda, he’s doing his utmost to please his communist Chinese associates and place their interests above those of freedom-loving American gun owners.

He just keeps running his mouth, per the Bloomberg script, when he and his disabled wife know full well that no law(s) past, present or future will stop a person from using a weapon to kill you.
The man who murdered people the day of the rally his wife attended and she was also shot, had mental issues and his family IGNORE it.

It has gradually become very clear that a significant number of our so-called “Democrats” are on the Chinese payroll, include Pelosi, Biden, Schiff, Feinstein, and on and on. Where is the concern about this?

It amazes me every time I hear these stories of the disgusting corruption. It makes me ill. I hope Arizona, you are smart enough not to put this guy in office. Thanks David for all of the deep dives.

Here’s Mrs. Kelly’s anti-gun website. https://giffords.org/

All kinds of Arizona Constitutional rights will be in complete jeopardy after Kelly is installed with late mail-in ballots. This happened with panic filled Sen. Sinema. There was a 3 point swing by Nov 7th, 2016 with the “lateys.”

November 4th, Kelly will take his new orders from Chuck Schumer.

U never knew the details, but I have long figured that if Kelly is married to the Giffy, they are two peas out of the same pod, if not when they knotted, certainly after this many years of “life together”.

We see the Giffy pretty clearly hw she’s pirated that random collateral damage round she took on accident into a major career, supported by….. another colossal dirtbag whose name I refuse to repeat, but whose initials are George Soros.

Ain’t life just find and dandy out there in the pea patch?

He should be ashamed of himself for parading her around, all her statements are prepared for her, she only recites ‘support background checks’.

Kelly is one of those clowns who had his fingers crossed behind back while taking his oath and worked military service to serve self. I had to tolerate those clowns most of my adult life and now feel free to talk about it. And yes, during the latter part of my career, tail end, I had a pretty major procurement job. I still wake up 20 years later with flash backs from Federal Acquisition Regulation seminars where they scared the shrapnel out of us with horror stories of gift lunches from a roach coach. This is why I have not… Read more »

This has been going on for years, but the high and mighty never get any punishment for their TREASON to this country, it falls back to a saying from WWII, LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS! These people should get the maximum discharge of punishment, with being charged with Treason to the country!!!!! We all took an oath when we entered the military, to Defend against all Enemies Foreign or Domestic, these people put it in the highest forms of TREASON!!!!!!

Excellent to be writing this, David.

I’ve known for some time that Kelly is a CCP Tool.

He will betray our America.

Now others get to know as well. Thank you.
