A lot has happened while we’ve been sleeping. Our elected officials have been making deals and collecting money from foreign businesses for years, and we just keep our eyes closed. Most of the people that sit in Washington have a dual purpose.
The first purpose is to personally make as much money as possible in the shortest period of time. A lawyer said that the second purpose is to use their political position to gain credibility with the power brokers of the world. Our elected officials are selling our country to the highest bidder.
A good example of how America is being ripped off is Rilin Enterprises. Rilin Enterprises is owned by billionaire Wang Wenliang. Wenliang is also a member of the Chinese Parliament. Since 2012, Wang’s company has spent $1.4 million lobbying Congress. The company has also donated $2 million to Bill and Hillary’s Clinton Foundation. China gets things done using money. They are masters when it comes to giving and knowing quite well what they will get in return.
The Clinton Foundation stopped taking money from foreign companies and individuals, but the relationships are still in place. It’s time to wake up and realize this country is not by the people or for the people that live here. It’s for the people that are buying their way into the pockets of Congress.
