China / Guo Wengui is a rapist
« Last post by lalapaluza on Today at 08:29:36 AM »
I saw the protest in the plaza between the sherry Netherlands hotel and the plaza hotel. the guy Guo bought the top floor of the sherry for 67 mil and now list it for 81 mil.

===Breitbart article.

Billionaire real estate mogul Guo Wengui is currently visiting the United States on a tourist visa, but he decided he would like to stay a little longer after top officials back in his homeland declared him an enemy of the Communist regime.
Guo applied for asylum in the United States this week, while the Chinese government has filed notices with Interpol seeking his arrest on charges of corruption and rape.

Guo earned the enmity of powerful officials back in his homeland by accusing them of extravagant corruption, including the top official on the Communist Party’s anti-corruption board, Wang Qishan.

50-year-old Guo has been working out of a $78 million penthouse in New York City for the past two years, flooding Twitter and YouTube with his allegations against Chinese officials. He often uses the name “Miles Kwok” on social media. Both his Facebook and Twitter accounts were mysteriously wiped out within a week of each other earlier this year, but eventually restored after he complained, and his followers began muttering about the willingness of social media giants to play ball with Chinese censors.

His videos and tweets include allegations of everything from “top leaders’ secret homes in California to their bank account information and hidden stakes in business empires,” according to the Associated Press. He has also accused the Chinese government of arresting his relatives to use as leverage against him.

He attempted to sell his apartment in July, but the deal was blocked by a Hong Kong hedge fund that argued he might move the cash from his liquidated asset outside the United States to evade his creditors.

“Some of the evidence he presents to back his claims is easily refuted or simply difficult to believe. But some of his accusations, such as those made against the family of Mr. Wang’s immediate predecessor, can be corroborated,” the New York Times observes.

Guo’s crusade does not appear to have weakened Wang’s position much, according to the Times, since Beijing has signaled he still enjoys “strong backing from his peers,” and some of them have taken pains to appear with Wang at ceremonial events such as the 100th anniversary commemoration of his father-in-law’s birth. Also, Wang is still secure in his anti-corruption seat well after the age when Chinese officials normally retire.

The counterattack from Chinese authorities and their state-run media has been fierce. The Associated Press kicks off its list of the charges against Guo with allegations that he sexually assaulted his 28-year-old personal assistant, then adds 19 more criminal complaints, including “bribing a top Chinese intelligence official, kidnapping, fraud and money laundering.”

The rape charge is exceptionally lurid, as the woman who filed the complaint charged Guo with assaulting her repeatedly in locations around the world over the course of two years while she traveled with him. She said she was occasionally held prisoner in Guo’s luxury accommodations, with her phone, computer, and passport confiscated.

Guo’s rags-to-riches story contains a good deal of the corruption he is crusading against, which an optimistic supporter might say qualifies him to know it when he sees it. In one colorful example provided by the Associated Press, Guo befriended an up-and-coming Chinese intelligence official named Ma Jian, who supplied him with a sex tape of a vice-mayor in Beijing who was blocking Guo’s bid for major project. Ma himself eventually became the top Chinese counterintelligence official, only to be accused of taking $8.8 million in bribes from Guo.

The AP notes that Chinese officials were extraordinarily eager to discuss the details of the ostensibly sensitive cases against Guo. The Chinese have discussed Guo’s case with senior U.S. officials and asked for his visa to be canceled—the strongest demand they could make, since the United States does not have an extradition treaty with China.

The New York Times points out a few hitches in Guo’s asylum application, beginning with the fact that it’s not entirely clear which country he is currently a citizen of. He has an impressive collection of passports, but the one nation he definitely lacks valid paperwork from is China. His lawyer said he doesn’t want to retire to any of the other nations he enjoy some form of citizenship from because he only feels safe from China in the United States. (His concerns about being kidnapped or killed by agents of Beijing are not unfounded; inconvenient Chinese billionaires have a habit of disappearing.)

Another problem is that granting Guo’s asylum request might interfere with the Trump administration’s efforts to secure Beijing’s assistance with North Korea. “Mr. Guo is arguably China’s most-wanted man, and giving him asylum would almost certainly antagonize Beijing, which may interpret the move as tacit approval of Mr. Guo’s tactics to undermine China’s leadership,” the New York Times speculates.

In the short term, that conflict might be avoided by allowing Guo to stay put while his asylum request is processed, which his lawyer noted could take years.

NPR reports that Guo met with Obama-era Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson a few months ago, in which Johnson evidently served as an unofficial emissary of the Trump administration. Leaked recordings of the meeting indicate Guo was told he would not be given to China as a bargaining chip. The recording also captured Guo taking pains to remind Johnson that he is a longtime member of President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort club.

Who’s this everybody. You don’t know anything about Asia. If you ask the typical Thai or Malaysian they don’t have this anti-China sentiment.

The old generationVietnamese Americans are the worst lot.

the viet in us does't get along. LOL. China is hated in asia b/c it's bullying everybody.

I don't understand why some people defend the Chinese govt when they don't even think their country is good enough for them to live in and raise their family so they flood to English speaking countries.

I have a friend from mainland. Every time I tell him vn is second on the most corrupt list, he laughs and says "china is third!".

You all are anti-corporation and anti-capitalist free-trade.. Companies do things that make economic sense. US companies manufacture their goods in China because it makes economic sense. In fact, Trump’s companies make their goods in China.

Again, your political bias prevents you from thinking in practical terms.

If US follow your idiotic bigoted sentiments the American economy will collapse.

I think the original NCKD is prettier and more natural looking but of course she's menopausal so you can't make kids.

it boils down to personality and I don't know either one personally.

china opposed india's terrorist effort b/c it is fighting india. china's goal is clear, gaining economic power and channeled it into military power so it one day will take over asia then the world.

the hezbolah situation occurred b/c china made big money selling arms to them.

so while china does not like extremist islam, it supports it when it benefits them.

I think gen Mattis said Iran is a bigger threat than ISIS. He might be right, bc Iran has nuclear capability. Isis is better known due to its infiltration in the west and lots of sensational suicidal attacks but as we can see Assad, russia and Iran are quite capable of squashing ISIS if the rest of the western world don't interfere. 

anyway, back to china vs. radial islam. its a delicate balance. I think the US is better off trying to deal with china threat right now with soft power. china is the biggest trade partner? LOL! biggest trade "deficit" partner is more like it. When you're the partner that has the trade deficite, you shouldn't be afraid to cut ties. China stands to loose more if the US plays hard ball.
your elititism is hard to understand.
I couldn't understand the whole story on the first one b/c the guy so long winded and his "lazy" slurred speaking style is hard to understand. Maybe that's why the translater got frustrated with him. Regardless though, he's a bank customer and must be treated with respect.

2nd guy, speaks better. I think he's more critical with vn work culture than complimentary. I think if you're more used to vn culture than it's better to be there with money. For me, even if I could be independently wealthy today I still would not re-locate to vn even though I speak the language. I can't tolerate being in a place where there's not a lot of freedom and rules of law. Can't cross the street without fearing for your life, have to clutch on to your purse all the time. I know there bad neighborhood in America too but in vn it's like that in most places.
