The GOP has nominated Representative Mike Johnson from Louisiana as their candidate for Speaker of the House. This decision came after previous attempts to elect Representatives Steve Scalise, Jim Jordan, and Tom Emmer failed. Johnson is relatively unknown on the national stage but has gained widespread support within the GOP, leading many to speculate that he is aligned with the party establishment while also making efforts to gain support from America First advocates.
An examination of Johnson’s political benefactors reveals some interesting connections. His top campaign donor is Morris & Dickson, a pharmaceutical corporation based in Louisiana. What is even more significant is that Morris & Dickson was the sole distributor of COVID vaccines for the State of Louisiana. They worked closely with the government to provide these vaccines, which have been widely controversial and were seen as the deadliest “vaccine” in history. Johnson’s strong financial backing from the pharmaceutical industry raises questions about his potential ties to the uni-party establishment.
Johnson has also received support from other influential organizations. He has received donations from Humana, a for-profit health insurance corporation that has been criticized for its pro-trans and pro-jab positions. He has also received support from insurance giant Blue Cross Blue Shield, retail giant Walmart, and the notorious Koch Brothers. Additionally, Johnson has received donations from the Paramount Global PAC, the political arm of left-leaning entertainment networks such as CBS and Nickelodeon, raising concerns about his connections to those who broadcast sexualized content to children.
Moreover, Johnson’s ties to the military-industrial complex have also come into focus. He has received donations from corporations within this sector, including Raytheon, L3Harris, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, and Boeing. These donations raise concerns about Johnson’s alignment with the interests of the military-industrial complex and their influence on his policy decisions.
In addition to these connections, Johnson has also received backing from AIPAC, the American Israeli Political Action Committee. AIPAC is known for supporting American intervention in the Middle East and has been vocal in its support of the Ukrainian war effort. This connection raises questions about Johnson’s stance on foreign policy issues and whether he may prioritize the interests of foreign entities over those of the American people.
The Republican Party is set to hold a vote on Johnson’s potential speakership on Wednesday afternoon. It remains to be seen how these financial ties and affiliations will impact the support he receives within the party. Stay tuned for updates from National File on this developing story.
