On June 4th, 2020, Hao Haidong (郝海东), Miles Kwok (Guo Wengui / 郭文贵) and Steve Bannon, proclaimed the “Declaration of New Federal State of China“, as part of the the “Whistleblower Movement” (Expose Revolution / 爆料革命)’s next step in the overthrowing of the Chinese Communist Party. (Declaration download:
In addition, they announced the formation of a non-governmental organisation (NGO) called “Himalaya Supervisory Organization“, that is supposedly meant to “serve as a bridge of communications between the New Federal State of China and international communities in areas of cooperation, defending people’s freedom, and protecting the security of assets on the basis of common development and mutual respect among the people of the whole world.”.
According to the “Declaration” PDF that we have acquired from Gnews’ website (https://gnews.org/zh-hans/221944/), the sponsors and formulators of the Declaration, includes:
“Global fellow supporters of Whistleblower’s Movement,
The Himalaya Supervisory Organization Chairman of Rule of Law Foundation — Mr. Kyle Bass,
Chairman of Rule of Law Society — Mr. Stephen K. Bannon,
Leader of Whistleblower’ s Movement & Founder of Rule of Law Foundation and Rule of Law Society Mr. Miles Guo (Guo, Wengui).”
Miles Guo is a Chinese billionaire that famously fled China in 2014 after he discovered that he is about to be arrested over multiple charges (it is unknown if the alleged charges are legitimate). He was formerly the 73rd richest man in China and had been on the crosshair of the Chinese Government for the past few years as he made public multiple “national-level” documents, which detailed espionage plans against the United States of America – a charge that is denied by the Chinese government as forgeries. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guo_Wengui)
Hao Haidong is a former Chinese football star (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hao_Haidong), that played for over 100 appearances for the Chinese National Team as well as a record holder for the highest number of goals scored in the Chinese Super League. He is widely considered as the best striker from China in the past 2 decade. As such, Hao Haidong is an extremely high profile individual, and its highly significant to note in the credibility of this movement and declaration. We can also be sure that, he can no longer return to China without getting arrested. This rebellion is joined by his wife, Ye Zhaoying (叶钊颖), whom is also super high profile, as she is the former world champion and number 1 seeded player in Batminton (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ye_Zhaoying)
Steve Bannon requires little introduction. He was the former White House Chief Strategist of the Trump administration and had been widely credited for turning around Trump’s presidential campaign when it was running out of steam. Steve Bannon had since been busy supporting populist-nationalist movements across Europe. The former Breitbart executive chairman had been in very close association with Miles Kwok over the past 2 years, appearing on many of the chinese language stream of Miles Kwok, that were focusing on the 2019 Hong Kong protests and riots.
And Kyle Bass is a prominent fund founder and principal of Hayman Capital Management. He gain his fame for predicting and profiting of the subprime crisis. His fund studied China very closely and had concluded that the China’s economy is badly over-leveraged, financial reporting are dubious and that they are struggling to keep itself afloat. His fund follow through with the bet of a Chinese banking collapse which did not happen (or perhaps the Chinese government had did a very good job of mitigating it), which he eventually pull out of the position in early 2019 after the Yuan strengthened. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyle_Bass)
From my personal understanding, the 3 (Kyle Bass, Miles Kwok and Steve Bannon) had became very close friends in their common denouncement of the CCP, and had appeared on each other’s shows/interviews discussing the developments in China.
The reason 4th of June was chosen for this declaration is because this is also the date for the Tiananmen Square incident of 1989, where the CCP announced martial law and cracked down on the massive protests that had been going on for more than a month. It was reported that troops opened fire at the protesters with live ammunition, killing hundreds of protesters and bystanders, with thousands more injured. This incident is totally censored in China and for the first time this year, Hong Kong is banned from commemorating this event.
Tentatively, it is impossible to understand how serious should we take this declaration/proclamation as well as this “rebel grouping”. Because tentatively, it is not very different from any proclamation of independence from any separatists groupings, from Philippines to Myanmar or Europe, or anywhere around the world. All of them have a flag, a declaration and supporters that are willing to fight for their vision.
But what marks this different from all the secessionist or independence movements around the world, is the high profile of the people involved in this particular one. All 4 of them (the 3 best friends + Hao Haidong) are of extremely high profile, all of them appears in public media.

Another significant thing to take them somewhat seriously, is the amount of financial backing this grouping could possibly have. While I have to say, it might not be “a lot” to hired 4 planes and a helicopter to fly the flag and announcement, and also buy air time at Times Square to announce their “formation” as they were doing the live streams making the proclamation and make this “noise”, from an announcement in Chinese yesterday (3rd June 2020) by Miles Kwok, he apparently say that he have a massive massive investment in his various media platforms under his Guo Media corporation ( https://www.guo.media/ )
Tentatively, from my understanding of their strategy, is to:
– build up a massive media platform to compete against the CCP on the information war
– encourage whistleblowing within China and transmit information out of China
– encourage people to bring as much information from Federal State of China into China itself (inspite of the Great China Firewall)
– establish a readiness to take over the CCP when “the CCP in inevitable decline and collapse”
– everyone needs to keep their head lows and be low profile for their personal security
Currently, its very hard to get more information quickly, as there is near zero information in English. Everything is reported and reshared in Mandarin/Chinese, and even as I can understand Mandarin/Chinese, context and use of words used is pretty foreign to me. However, now that this had commanded my attention, we will try to report in the future if there is any other significant developments accordingly.
As of writing of this article, Hao Haidong’s and his wife, Ye Zhaoying’s Weibo accounts (Chinese Twitter) have been suspended. Anything discussing and about Hao Haidong in Hupu’s (a sports forum) database is totally deleted/censored. This is not a joke, at least for not for him and his wife.
