Vol 2 Chapter 396 Mighty Donkey
Chapter 396 The Mighty Donkey
The United States is surrounded by the sea on three sides, namely the east coast, west coast and south coast.
The east coast is the traditional Great Lakes region, dominated by New York, the most prosperous and developed area in the United States.
The south coast is Miami and New Orleans.
The West Coast usually refers to the three states of California, Oregon and Washington.
In a broad sense, it also includes Alaska and Hawaii.
Here generally belongs to the Mediterranean climate.
The characteristic of the Mediterranean climate is that it is habitually sunny in winter.
Like the Eurasian side. In winter, there are often a lot of Maozi and Nordic people flocking to the Mediterranean Sea.
It’s because creatures always like warmth and don’t like cold. Because in winter in Europe, the Mediterranean Sea is not too cold, so they go there for the winter.
In the United States, when winter comes, many people from the east coast also run to the west coast and south coast.
More people went to Hawaii, while some stayed in California.
However, in winter in California, the daytime will occasionally be around 30 degrees. But the sea water here is often very cold in winter, which is not suitable for diving into the sea.
If Americans want to go into the water in winter and don’t want to go abroad, then it’s better to have Hawaii, Miami or the Caribbean.
But if you just need beaches and sunshine, California can satisfy you.
On a sunny day with a breezy sea breeze.
The “Jessica” of the same style as the “Annie” that Abel gave Anne on Christmas Day.
On the waters of Los Angeles, I gathered with dozens of other large and small yachts.
When Jerry Brown was in the middle of the yacht.
On the largest flagship, Abel was greeted with a smile on his face, and when he saw Jessica beside Abel.
One of the largest land snakes in California was stunned for a moment.
But he reacted very quickly, and soon laughed naturally, and gave Abel a big hug, “Oh, welcome to the Mighty Donkey, dear Mr. Smith!”
“Oh, is this the famous “Mighty Donkey”? She is so beautiful. Good afternoon, Mr. Brown.”
Abel responded with a smile.
That’s right, today Abel didn’t just go out to sea with Jessica.
Going to sea this time, he accepted the invitation of two people.
One is Jerry Brown, and the other is Richard Gephardt, whom he has met a few times but is not familiar with.
Abel met Richard Gephardt twice at the White House, and once at Smith Capital’s year-end reception last year.
Richard Gephardt is the current minority leader of the House of Representatives.
And the current minority party in the House of Representatives is the Donkey Party. In other words, Richard Gephardt is one of the donkey party leaders.
Jerry Brown is also one of the donkey gangsters, but he is a local prince, the most powerful one.
Two donkey bosses came out to invite them, but they didn’t say what the purpose was, they just said that they invited Abel to go out to sea with him.
Abel agreed after thinking about it.
This is the scene where he went out to sea on a yacht today and came here.
And this large yacht surrounded by other yachts, its real name is not “Mighty Donkey”.
The Mighty Donkey is its nickname, and its name is the Dish.
It’s just an insider who likes to call it a powerful donkey.
Corresponding to its nickname is the sign of victory of its old enemy.
It is said that they are tools for senior figures of their respective parties to go out to sea and socialize.
Only those who have climbed to a certain position within their party can hope to be invited.
Of course, even if not inside their party. But as long as you have enough status or usefulness, you can also receive such an invitation.
For example, Abel in front of you is.
He is a senior member of the Elephant Party. Although he has never held any position in the party, due to family reasons, he joined the Elephant Party Youth Department when he was in middle school, paying fees every year.
It’s almost ten years now.
He is even the boss of the current elephant party bosses, the son-in-law of the bush family.
But he was still invited by the donkey party to visit the mighty donkey.
To put it bluntly, he is rich to his level. Unless there is a natural conflict of interest, both the elephant and the donkey will frantically win him over.
There is no action on the elephant side, that is because he is an elephant.
His father has already started to step into the middle level and move towards the top level.
is an elephant that is difficult to jump out no matter how you jump, and is a natural elephant in the mind of the party.
The donkey side should have been hostile to him.
Who told him that he has a new media giant like Smith Media, and he is one of the Wall Street giants.
At the same time, he also holds a large number of stocks in Internet giants.
The Internet itself is the achievement of the donkey party in power, and it is the future pillar they imagined!
The first two forces have always been the basic market for donkeys to strive for and win over.
It’s like the party’s basic plate, which has always been energy, military, and heavy industry.
There is also a very serious Internet.
So because of his senior elephant party status, he should be more repelled and hostile to Abel’s donkey party.
All along, she has been very tolerant towards him.
The reason is this.
What’s more, this period is like a strong donkey and a weak one, when the two parties can still have a tacit understanding.
The donkeys naturally wouldn’t show too much hostility towards Abel.
This is also the reason why Abel accepted the invitation of Richard Gephardt and Jerry Brown with confidence and went to sea to participate.
If it takes more than ten years, the two factions begin to split.
Then Abel would never accept such an invitation.
Ghosts know what the donkey will do after being dazed.
At about eleven o’clock in the morning, on the deck of the “Mighty Donkey” yacht.
Abel smiled and hugged Richard Gephardt again.
Jerry Brown also shook hands very politely with Jessica, who was extremely reserved and looked very nervous.
Even though she has been Abel’s woman for almost two years, she has seen more big scenes than parallel time and space.
But at this moment, on such an occasion, seeing the big names in such a country, they are all Hollywood… no, they are big names that the entertainment industry needs to look up to.
If Abel wasn’t around at this time, Jessica felt that her legs would be useless and she would lie on the ground directly.
A person’s childhood background and knowledge determine his/her vision.
She was at most the daughter of a small businessman since she was a child, and a middle-class girl who dreams of becoming a star when she grows up.
Nervousness is unavoidable, because they don’t know how to face these big figures who appear in the big news of the country.
It would be much better if Ikana and Paris were replaced.
There may be nervousness, but they have absolutely no problem with how to contact and receive them.
If it were Peggy, Little Laura and the others who were born, they probably wouldn’t even be nervous.
No one else, but compared to the former, they were used to seeing guests of this status at home as early as when they were young.
Abel didn’t know Jessica’s nervousness, he didn’t have any nervousness anyway.
Maybe it would have been in the few months when he was just reborn.
Wait for his wealth to be free, and after the rapid transformation under the stimulation of capital.
Even when his net worth is only a few hundred million dollars, with the mentality of a time traveler and his talent, he already has the mentality of God’s perspective that he doesn’t get nervous when he sees anyone.
Of course, he had that kind of mentality in that situation at that time, and he was somewhat inflated…
“Mr. Gephardt, I think it’s time to go to sea. It’s better for us to go to Hawaii.”
Abel smiled and hugged Richard Gephardt’s shoulders. The old guy was tall, probably 1.9 meters tall, just a little shorter than him.
“Or the Caribbean Sea is also good. In winter, the coast of California, the beach is not bad. The sea is very cold.”
Richard Gephardt, a half-century-old man, was treated shoulder-to-shoulder by such a young man, but he didn’t look angry at all.
It’s not that he cultivated it well, it’s just that in his eyes, Abel’s young age is no longer important.
What matters is Abel’s identity, wealth and influence!
“Oh… Actually, if I can decide. I would rather go to the Bay Area and find a golf course to play golf.” Richard Gephardt said to Abel with a smile.
“But this party was not initiated by me, so there is no way.”
“It’s not you, it’s Mr. Brown?”
“No.” Jerry Brown had already leaned over.
Two old men, both over sixty, surrounded young Abel in the middle, as if he was the core.
“It was called by another gentleman. It was a gathering of many friends. We felt that you were one of our most distinguished guests, Mr. Smith, and we invited you.”
Jerry Brown said.
Richard Gephardt smiled and nodded slightly.
Abel shrugged, thinking that the two old men are still playing with mystery? Labor and management have even seen Rockefeller, Morgan, the California consortium, and the Texas consortium.
There are also contact information of the top oil men.
Just make a phone call, and you can call over in minutes to have a party together.
Who is on the side of the donkey party?
He smiled and stopped mentioning this, and followed the two old men across the deck to the interior of the yacht.
They quickly passed a corridor hung with various beautiful oil paintings and decorations, and entered a large living room on the huge yacht.
There were a lot of people in the big living room. Abel glanced over and found at least thirty or forty people, men and women, more men than women.
And he also immediately saw the core of the crowd, a few old men and old women surrounded in the middle.
Among them, two old men and an old woman walked briskly towards him after he entered.
Without waiting for the other party to approach, Abel, Jerry Brown, and Jessica behind Richard Gephardt have already whispered in surprise:
“Oh my God! Corydon! Hinari!”
It’s no wonder that Jessica lost her composure in front of so many people.
Because they were smiling, the three people who walked over quickly were not others.
Who are the two of them who are household names to everyone in the United States?
Isn’t that Coryton, who has been praised as the best “civilian commander” in the history of the United States, who is praised and evaluated as comparable to Lincoln and Kennedy by the people, and his equally famous wife Sinari!
Jessica can still hold back seeing big figures like Richard Gephardt and Jerry Brown.
Seeing such a legendary couple, Jessica couldn’t help crying out.
I saw Coryton with his iconic smile. After walking over, he didn’t even look at Jessica, but directly extended his hand to Abel with a smile:
“Mr. Smith, hello. My name is William Jefferson Coryton.”
Abel raised his eyebrows and shook hands with him with a smile:
“It seems that you are the initiator of the party and the person who invited me. It is very mysterious, Mr. Coryton. Hello, I am Abel Smith.”
“Hahaha~” Coryton laughed, his temperament was hearty and natural, and he looked very energetic, much better than George’s aura.
“Sorry, we didn’t deliberately keep it secret. But Jerry said, it will be a surprise to you. I don’t think it will be a surprise to see me. After all, it is already 2002, not 2000, let alone 1993.”
Abel looked at Jerry Brown meaningfully, and the old fox smiled at him friendly as always.
Abel could only say: “Of course there are surprises. After all, you are one of the Americans I admire the most.”
Abel’s words are somewhat sincere.
Coryton, let alone his contribution to the United States during his administration.
Just his superficial life experience is enough to be called a legend.
One father died before he was born, and his mother remarried to the middle class with a big belly. When he was 16-17 years old, he could shake hands with Kennedy and take pictures. In his thirties, he became a governor. At 46, he became a general.
Only on the surface, this is pretty **** good.
But reality…that’s another story.
It’s just that this doesn’t hinder Abel, and I really admire the other party.
At least in terms of being the leader and politician of the United States, Coryton has achieved the ultimate.
Collidon smiled and let go of Abel’s hand.
Standing behind him is his wife Hinari.
This… is also a legend.
Abel also shook hands with her, and said with a smile, “Mrs. Coryton, how are you?”
“Hello, Mr. Smith.” Hinari’s old face turned into a flower with a smile. It can be seen that she should be a beautiful woman when she was young, but now she is also an old woman.
She shook Abel’s hand, as if she wanted to say something.
But Abel has turned aside, another old white guy.
“Ha, hello, Mr. Schultz…” He let go of Shinari’s hand, which he was reluctant to let go, and shook hands with the old white man:
“I’m Abel Smith. Nice to meet you here.”
Drin Schultz smiled and shook hands with Abel. He is the chairman of the National Committee of the Donkey Party of the United States, that is, the leader of the Donkey Party, and the real core of the Donkey Party.
A leader and a whip are different. There are two party whips, one for the House of Representatives and one for the Senate.
Like Richard Gephardt, he is the Donkey Party House Whip, and the other Senate Whip is Le Cowan Jones.
The same goes for the Xiang Party. Sometimes, however, the party leader acts directly as the whip.
The power of the party leader is sometimes very large, sometimes very small, mainly depending on his own ability and influence.
Schultz is relatively moderate.
After shaking hands with Schultz, Abel smiled and looked behind them, and saw that everyone in the living room was smiling at him.
What surprised him a little was that among these people, he met a few big figures from the Xiang Party.
There are also some wealthy bigwigs who are biased towards the party.
Abel took a deep breath.
He vaguely understood what kind of party today might be.
