Arizona Democrat Senate candidate Mark Kelly founded a company that has recieved millions in funding from Chinese tech giant Tencent, Real Clear Politics reported on Wednesday.
World View Enterprises, a private spacecraft tourism company that Kelly founded in 2013, received two rounds of capital funding from Tencent in 2014 and 2016.
Chinese technology companies are obligated to cooperate with the nation’s Communist authoritarian government and intelligence services by Chinese law, and some argue that the structure of the nation’s big companies such as Tencent renders them little more than state-run enterprises.
The federal government is increasingly skeptical of companies such as Tencent specifically, which suspended its streaming service of National Basketball Association games in China after the Daryl Morey Hong Kong protests controversy. Tencent is the parent company of Chinese social media platform WeChat, which participated in prolific censorship of criticism regarding the Chinese government’s deceptive response to the coronavirus epidemic.
Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz introduced a legislative proposal to bar federal employees from conducting communications on platforms owned by Chinese companies Tencent, Huawei, and ZTE, citing the possibility of Chinese surveillance of sensitive U.S. information.
Kelly is financially linked to the company, raising serious questions as to why the Democratic Senate candidate thought it would be a sober decision to do business with a Chinese company for an enterprise involving sensitive air and space technology. His personal financial disclosure forms for his Senate campaign reveal he still maintains a personal financial stake of between $100,000 and $250,000 in World View, and his campaign itself accepted a $5,000 contribution from Tencent chief exploration officer David Wallerstein.
As of Thursday morning, Kelly is yet to provide an answer for his investment connections with the Chinese technology company.
Washington DC Democrat Government Poisons Michigan National Guard Troops With Uncooked Meals, Metal Shavings
A whistleblower deployed with a detachment of the Michigan National Guard in Washington, DC has revealed that that his soldiers are being served with unsafe food by the government. The troops are present following the January 20th inauguration.
The staff sergeant revealed the travesty, speaking anonymously to Detroit’s WXYZ. The National Guard had contracted with the Washington DC city government to feed the troops, who were present to protect the city.
“Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them,” the sergeant said. “Just yesterday, the lunches were, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food.”
The staff sergeant whistleblower revealed the raw meat had made more than a dozen service members sick with food poisoning, with one soldier even having to go to the hospital after eating the uncooked chicken.
The Michigan National Guard later confirmed that the troops were being effectively food-poisoned by the local government.
The @MINationalGuard provided this statement today:
"The firsthand accounts and pictures of undercooked food being served clearly shows that what is being given to Michigan’s service members is unacceptable."@GovWhitmer spoke with the Acting Sec. of Army about the situation pic.twitter.com/QEaa7G2fRB

The MING personnel have since switched to eating MRE’s, or meals-ready-to-eat.
The uncooked food scandal represents the second act of disrespect to Guard members stationed around the Capitol. Pelosi’s House of Representatives had kicked out Guard members who were sleeping in a lobby room following a Democrat Congressman’s complaint that one wasn’t wearing a mask, forcing the troops to sleep in a parking lot on a night where temperatures were near freezing.
The Washington political establishment wishes to use military service members as political props to fearmonger a bogus imminent threat of “insurrection,” but the bastion of globalism can’t even provide edible food to the troops.
