Federal State of China

A political movement or lobby group created by Guo Wengui and Steve Bannon, with the stated aim of overthrowing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as the Chinese Government. Launched on 4 June 2020 (the anniversary of Tiananmen Square) in New York City in front of the Statue of Liberty, the body was referred by its founders as a “government in exile” of China. The NGO called Himalaya Supervisory Organization is the organization behind the movement, dedicated to spreading the word and acting as the means of communications with “international communities”.

In 2017, Mr. (Miles) Guo Wengui, a wealthy Chinese businessman who was exciled to the US, launched the Whistleblower Movement that exposes the deceptive inside affairs of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Inspired by him, hundreds of millions of Chinese gathered together to declare their seperation from the rule of the CCP, and formation of a new nation with the rule of law, democracy, and freedom. This is the origin of the New Federal State of China.

Below: Bannon & Guo: Bannon reads the new declaration.

The group operates in Australia under the name Himalaya Australia, in New Zealand under Himalaya New Zealand and in the UK as Himalaya UK. It has been involved in protests against the Chinese government and against the arrest of Bannon in the US, and in the spread of misinformation about the origins and treatment of the COVID-19 virus in Australia.

The ideology of righteousness and justice is the nations firm foundation, as well as freedom, equality, rule of law and other modern democratic principles. The nation also recognizes the fundemental wisdom of Chinese culture as the foundation of the new system. Furthermore, its citizens must have religious freedom and the freedom to live without discrimination.

The three missions of the new Federal State of China are:

  1. To overthrow the dictatorship of the CCP
  2. Establish a new order under the rule of law, democracy, and freedom
  3. Establish a new paradigm of mutual respect and cooperation worldwide

The flag of the new Federal State of China is a blue rectangular background with 49 golden seven-pointed stars forming two orthogonal ellipses with a larger star in the center representing ‘Divine Duty.’ The seven-pointed stars represent faith.

Mr. Miles Guo was interviewed by Han Meimei and David on NFSCTV7, and talked about the significance of the “March For Trump” Rally, which they participated in with an anti-communism rally 2 hours prior to the Trump Stop the Steal Million MAGA rally, Guo also discussed what the 2020 Election means to the Chinese people as well as the American people.

The American Constitution and the Amendments are the basis of modern human civilization. The Chinese Communist Party cadres let all their families, their illegitimate children live in the West because they trust the rule of law and belief in God in the democracies. Ever since the beginning of the “Whistleblower Movement”, Mr. Guo has been telling the West that elites from the Wall Street, the Silicon Valley, Hollywood are undermining the basis of the American democracy and pushing the ideology of socialism and communism. This small group of elites want to take control of the majority of human wealth and population forever, depriving basic human rights and dignity from the “laobaixing”, and ruin the American Constitution and Freedom of Speech. The CCP has infiltrated all American main-stream media and big techs with its “Blue-Gold-Yellow” scheme (intelligence, bribery and homey trap) and “3F” plan (to weaken, mess up and kill America), launching an “unrestricted warfare” onto every aspect of the American way of life.

America has witnessed and suffered the indecency and malign tactics of media oppression and misinformation, like twitter, Facebook, CNN, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal… But imagine living under a harsh dictatorship for 7 decades, having no freedom of speech or protest, all basic human rights being taken away. That’s what the Chinese people are living through day after day, generation after generation. The Wall Street, Hollywood, big techs and Washington are responsible for this disaster, because without their money and technology, the CCP by no means could survive and enslave the Chinese people for so long. They know perfectly the slave labor in China, the dead bodies at the “June 4 Tiananmen Square”, the selling out of the CIA informants and Hong Kong, and the fragility of the Taiwan relationship, and yet, they are still colluding with the CCP. They owe the Chinese people.

Now the elites are trying to impose the same dictatorship on the American people. They even want to steal the Election from the people. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google, CNN, WSJ…they are trying so hard to block different voices, spread misinformation, take away people’s freedom of speech, cover up voter fraud and manipulate public opinions. They even threaten the American people that either Biden be elected or “Antifa” will riot in the streets. This is outrageous and pathetic. The world have seen a firewall in Communist China. The media and big techs are building one in the U.S., totally ignoring the laws and human rights. They are the CCP in the U.S..

It’s time democracy, rule of law and freedom were given back to the Chinese people. The people of the New Federal State of China stand out today to show their support for President Trump because President Trump and his team will fight with us to take down the CCP. We know it’s the only way to free the Chinese people, as well as to defend America’s national security and dignity, and uphold its Great Power status in the world. We believe President Trump will win the 2020 Election. The Constitution and the American people get to decide who will be their president, not the media or the big techs. This is a historical opportunity for the America to improve their electoral system, drain the swamp and enter a new era, to “Make America Great Again”.

The New Federal State of China will follow the best democracies in the world and have an electoral system where all Chinese people get to vote and choose their own leaders too. We learn from the experience and mistakes from the West and will establish a system with separated powers, freedom of religion, rule of law and independence of media.

Mr. Guo has raised some concerns about President Trump’s personal safety. He knows what the CCP wants to or dare to do. For several years, our intelligence and information have been accurate and adequate as to dealing with the CCP’s operations.

Mr. Guo has also expressed his perspectives about the next actions that America should be taking after the election. There need to be three battle fields. First, deal with the problems within the American system. Drain the swamp and rectify the media. They cannot hide behind Section 230 and continue to sell out the country or frame the patriots. Second, improve the constitutional and electoral systems and remedy the loopholes. Find out the criminals behind the scenes, both domestic and international, and bring them to justice. Do not let any of them get away with this criminality against the nation. Third, fully restore the American economy, which means they need to find out the truth of the CCP virus and decouple with the CCP. People will want to know where this virus came from and who interfered the U.S. Election. Those who collaborated with the CCP, including the media and the medical communities need to come clean. Criminals need to be brought to justice. People need to be reassured of their confidence in the government and rule of law.

Last but not least, the New Federal State of China stands for the Chinese people. We will work closely with the American people to restore order for the world. With our American allies, we will work to tear down the great firewall in Communist China, develop Gnews, GTV, G-coin, G-dollar, G-fashion and G-club, and be the bridge between China and the West, to establish a civilized world of thousand-year peace, order and cooperation under the laws, with respect for each other’s religions, history and traditions. We don’t want any more killing or economic wars. We want all peoples to be free from enslavement, make clean money, live a decent life, have less pressure or pain, and more time for their families. It’s our commitment. It’s written in the New Federal State of China Declaration. We will gain the recognition and approval of the American people without any delay. We welcome cooperation.

God bless this movement and down with the CCP! God would have these people to be free and enjoy the liberty meant for all of His children.

Tartaria

There’s a story circulating on the internet regarding a country lost in the chronicles of history. A country that once seemed to be world known is now forgotten, buried in the sands of time. Tartaria, Tartary, or Grand Tartaria has been troubling online researchers as they dig in old maps dating back as far as to the 15th century. What intrigued the internet was a declassified document by the CIA, which mentions the deletion of this country’s history which seems to have been located in the land of modern Russia/Siberia & Asia.

According to the old world maps, at times it reached the borders of China and Mongolia. Little is known about the people inhabiting the land at that time and due to the lack of information people are still speculating if it was an area or an actual country. Europeans during the 19th century and earlier seem to have called Asian areas Tartary before they explored them and recorded them in greater detail.

This is an excerpt of the declassified CIA document created in 1957.

According to Wikipedia:

“Tartary (Latin: Tartaria) or Great Tartary (Latin: Tartaria Magna) was a historical region in Asia located between the Caspian Sea-Ural Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Tartary was a blanket term used by Europeans for the areas of Central Asia, North Asia, and East Asia unknown to European geography. It encompassed the vast region of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, the Volga-Urals, the Caucasus, Siberia, Inner Asia, Mongolia and Manchuria.

Knowledge of Manchuria, Siberia and Central Asia in Europe prior to the 18th century was limited. The entire area was known simply as “Tartary” and its inhabitants “Tartars”. In the Early modern period, as understanding of the geography increased, Europeans began to subdivide Tartary into sections with prefixes denoting the name of the ruling power or the geographical location. Thus, Siberia was Great Tartary or Russian Tartary, the Crimean Khanate was Little Tartary, Manchuria was Chinese Tartary, and western Central Asia (prior to becoming Russian Central Asia) was known as Independent Tartary.”

Wikipedia claims that Tartaria was a blanket term and that not much knowledge was available to Europeans but in this book below written by Giovanni da Pian del Carpine in 1252 we can find an extensive research made about the Tartars and their empire.

Great Leap Forward

(1958-1961) was a campaign to nationalize industry and agriculture in China, instituted by Chinese dictator Mao Tse-tung, which included collectivizing farmland. Peasants were forced to produce steel in backyard furnaces to raise China’s steel output. The whole ill-conceived venture resulted in widespread famine, economic disaster and what modern Chinese history now refers to as Three Years of Disasters. As estimates vary, the Communist inspired democide was believed to result in the deaths of at least 45 million people. Deng Xiaoping claimed the death toll to be 16 million, while the lowest estimate is 8 million.

According to the far left online encyclopedia Wikipedia, “The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other leftwing newspapers and publications.” Mao decided to use the Forward slogan in his great experiment to modernize New China under the precepts of Democratic Socialism. Mao chose to model New China’s socialist economy after that of the Soviet Union. The Soviet model called for capital-intensive development of heavy industry, with the capital to be generated from the agricultural sector of the economy. The state would purchase grain from the farmers at low prices and sell it, both at home and on the export market, at high prices. In practice, agricultural production did not increase fast enough to generate the amount of capital required to build up China’s industry according to plan. Mao Zedong (1893-1976) decided that the answer was to reorganize Chinese agriculture by pushing through a program of cooperativization (or collectivization) that would bring China’s small farmers, their small plots of land, and their limited draught animals, tools, and machinery together into larger and, presumably, more efficient cooperatives. The Great Leap Forward was a program to nationalize industry and agriculture.

Mao promoted a policy of disposing of “rightist” opponents and sharing the wealth in state-run cooperatives. Since steel was the matter guns and tanks were made of, Mao declared the party’s priority to overtake the United States and Great Britain in steel and agricultural output in 15 years. Two liberal New Deal economists, Frank Coe and Solomon Adler, were recruited as advisers.

The program included the establishment of large agricultural communes containing as many as 75,000 people. Peasants were forced to produce steel in open furnaces at the expense of food production. 60% of the steel produced was substandard and useless. Corruption was rampant, with local party officials reporting inflated steel and agricultural output numbers to please their central party bosses. Famine set in; people resorted to eating tree bark and dirt, and in some areas to cannibalism. Farmers who failed to meet grain quotas, tried to get more food, or attempted to escape were tortured and killed along with their family members via beating, public mutilation, being buried alive, scalding with boiling water, and other methods.

45 million people died in the social experiment. According to the Japanese Wikipedia, “It is the socialist policy with the highest number of casualties in the world.” In 2009 Prof. Chen Lin of the Beijing Foreign Studies University said of Solomon Adler,

“Sol Adler, as well as two other friends of China, Jack Service and Frank Coe, confronted the Joseph McCarthy persecution. So Sol left the US to stay in the UK. During this period, he visited China many times and in various ways introduced New China to the outside world. His book The Chinese Economy in 1957 won worldwide acclaim. In 1962, when the Chinese people were facing great difficulties at home and abroad, Sol Adler resolutely decided to come and settle in China. He said, “I have come to settle in China for three reasons: First, I have all along had great trust and confidence in the Chinese people and their leaders; second, I have all along had unshakable faith in the cause of socialism; and third, I hope to stay in China for as long as possible and work for world peace and the friendship between the Chinese people and the peoples of the world. I want to devote my whole life to the cause of socialism.”.

Chinese historical revisionism now refers to The Great Leap Forward as The Three Years of Disasters. Mao’s successor Deng Xiaoping claimed the death toll to be only 16 million, one-third the actual number of victims. The Great Leap Forward remains the greatest prime example of the failure of socialist economic planning.

Mao would genocide 70 million innocent Chinese people under his rule mainly to destroy traditional Chinese culture. Like with Christianity any practioners of spiritual systems where outlawed, killed and put into gulags which was a slow death. And Communistic systems where the new culture of control. With China under their flag Tibet was next on the list as being the last bastion of spiritual knowledge and histories of humanity. All the Jewish systems seek to remove spiritual knowledge from Gentiles and keep it in the hands of the Jewish elite. This is a major part of their domestication program.

Mao in a high-level meeting with several Jews [Frank Coe, Israel Epstein, Elsie Fairfax-Cholmely, and Solomon Adler] Coe was one of the Jew responsible for the Great Leap Foreword the engineered famine which killed forty million people.


Now that Mao’s Great Famine is available, more details—more horrible details—are known than before.  Dikötter explains how this happened:  “But a new archive law has recently opened up vast quantities of archival material to professional historians, fundamentally changing the way one can study the Maoist era” (pp. ix-x).

There was no crop failure.  The disaster was man-made.  The Great Leap Forward was a series of policies designed to make China richer and stronger—policies that could not possibly have worked.

The first of these policies was diverting water to use for irrigation. “Some 30 million people were recruited in October 1957.  By January one in six people was digging the earth in China. …  At its peak, some 160,000 people had been made to work on the project, and most of these were villagers diverted away from agricultural work. At least 2,400 died, some in accidents, but many more as a result of a brutal regime which forced workers to slave day and night in order to reach ever higher targets” (pp. 27-28).

The regions of China that suffered most from Mao’s policies were those where people were evicted from their farms and homes in order to make room for reservoirs—reservoirs that were never completed.  “A special group of victims were displaced by the irrigation and reservoir schemes launched during the Great Leap Forward.  There were several million of them.  In Hunan alone well over half a million people were evacuated.  A third of a million, if not more, were evicted in each of the giant projects that were started at the Three Gate Gorge in Henan, Xin’anjiang in Zhejiang and Danjiangkou in Hubei” (p. 170).  These areas are all in central China.

The second policy was forcing farmers to follow a policy of deep plowing. Mao somehow believed that this would increase productivity. “Villagers, of course, knew better.  They had tilled the land for generations, and knew how to care for a precious resource on which their livelihoods depended..  Many were incredulous, trying to reason with the cadres. … But advice was ignored. … Most villagers, having witnessed a series of anti-rightist campaigns since 1957, were too wily to object in public” (p. 40).

The third policy, and by far the most destructive, was ordering farmers to build backyard furnaces and to melt their tools and produce steel to make China a powerful industrial nation.  They also were told to cut wood to use to melt the metal. “Villagers dispersed into the forests in search of fuel …  Trees were randomly felled, keeling over on villagers” (p. 58).

The cost of losing tools and spending time hunting for wood to make steel was enormous.  Famine followed as the night the day. The steel turned out to be useless:  “Iron ingots from rural communes accumulated everywhere, too small and brittle to be used in modern rolling mills” (p. 61).

Farmers were the victims who suffered most.  China’s major cities—Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin—suffered as well, but less than villages.  “All three cities, as well as Liaoning, were placed under special protection” (p. 71).

Mao, more than anybody else in China, was deceived by the system of  thought control he had instituted.  The official who accompanied Mao on his visits, Li Zhisui, was told that farmers had been ordered to transplant rice plants along the Chairman’s route to give the impression of a bumper harvest. …  Mao was delighted. As reports came in from all over the country about new records in cotton, rice, wheat, or peanut production, he started wondering what to do with the surplus food” (p. 41).

 Li Zhisui, alas, did not say a word to Mao about this. Mao didn’t learn that his deep-plowing policy was nonsense.  He didn’t find out that the steel was useless. The countless party officials kept their mouths shut.  “At every level party officials badgered their subordinates for the truth but were deceitful to their own superiors, contributing to a maze of self-deception” (p. 327).

There was one hero who tried to tell Mao the truth.  His name was Peng Dehuai, and he was China’s Secretary of Defense.  There was a meeting of party leaders that took place in the city of Lushan and began in July, 1959.  He tried to tell Mao and other party members what was really happening in China.  “Mao delivered an ultimatum: leaders would have to choose between Peng and himself, and the choice would bring about enormous political consequences for the party” (p. 97).  Not a soul at the Lushan meeting dared to confirm the information Peng had produced.  Peng lost his position and was placed under house arrest for the next 16 years.

Zhou Enlai, Chairman Mao’s right hand man, never ever expressed the slightest opposition to anything Mao did. Two years after the Lushan conference, in 1961, the destruction caused by the famine could no longer be hidden. “Zhou Enlai, always circumspect, acknowledged some of the errors made in the wake of the Lushan plenum, and then, to help the Chairman save face, openly accepted blame for everything that had gone wrong” (p. 121).

The silence of Zhou Enlai and the consistent dishonesty of the party officials followed from the nature of a society built according to Marx’s dream, a time when the state will wither away because there will be no more disagreement since there will be no economic differences. Believing that this situation is one’s goal is necessarily destructive, since it involves believing a lie. In order to protect this lie, the state must be designed to eliminate freedom of thought. Thought reform, sixiang gaizao in Chinese, was an explicit goal of all Marxist societies, not only China’s.

Stalin engineered a famine as part of his war against the kulaks.  Pol Pot’s regime led to about 2 million deaths in Cambodia, out of a population of 7 million. Most of those deaths were by starvation.  In North Korea starvation still continues. Amartya Sen, the winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize in economics, wrote in his book  Development as Freedom (1999), “No famine has ever taken place in the history of the world in a functioning democracy.”

China, unlike the USSR, did not have a moment of relative improvement after the takeover by the Communist Party. Mao’s victory took place in 1949. A year later, China entered the Korean War.  John King Fairbank, in his major book China: A New History, writes, “Altogether the PRC sent into Korea more than 2.3 million troops, including about two thirds of its of its filed army, artillery, and airforce and all its tanks” (p. 348).  During the period of the Korean War, China began its policy of purges. “In 1951-52 the Three-Antis Campaign (against corruption, waste, and bureaucratism) was targeted on officials in government, in industry, and in the party.  The concurrent Five-Antis Campaign attacked the capitalist class, who at first had been left in place.  Under charges of  bribery, tax evasion, theft of state assets, cheating in labor or materials, and stealing of state economic intelligence, nearly every employer could be brought to trial” (p. 349).

China, of course, has no history of democracy, although Sun Yat-Sen, who died in 1925, attempted to bring democracy to China.  There have been famines in China throughout history, with one recorded as early as 875 C.E. But there was never anything anywhere in the world equal to the Mao-made famine.  According to Dikötter, “The death toll thus stands at a minimum of 45 million excess deaths.  It could be even worse than that.  Some historians speculate that the figure stands as high as 50 to 60 million people.  It is unlikely that we will know the full extent of the disaster until the archives are completely opened.  … Yu Xiguang, an independent researcher with a great deal of experience, puts the figure at 55 million excess deaths” (pp. 333-334).

China’s principle philosophy, Confucianism, is relatively open to freedom of thought but at the same time demands respect and obedience to one’s elders.  The Daoist (Taoist) and Buddhist religions have no history of religious persecution in any way comparable to what went on in Europe.  However, the first emperor of a unified China, Qin Shi Huang, who ruled from 221 to 210 B.C.E., burned most existing books and ordered 460 scholars to be buried alive for owning forbidden books.  Perhaps he was the ruler who most resembled Chairman Mao.

China’s history is long and complicated, but compared to Europe in the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, and the religious wars in response to the Protestant Reformation, it was a stable and functioning society.

During the Mao era, however, society broke down. “As famine set in, the villagers started cannibalising their homes, either bartering the bricks for food or burning the wood for fuel. If the thatch on the roofs had not been consumed by fire, it was taken down and eaten in desperation. … The situation varied tremendously from place to place, but overall, the Great Leap Forward constitutes, by far, the greatest demolition of property in human history” (p. 169).

The loss of property should in no way be interpreted as the beginning of an egalitarian society.  “A wall was created between cities and the countryside, but an equally important fault line ran between ordinary people and party members. … Even the quality of cigarettes varied according to rank.  At the apex of the party stood the leadership, who had special residences ensconced between high walls, security guards around the clock and chauffeured cars. … Above them all was Mao, living in opulence near the Forbidden City where emperors had once dwelled, his bedroom the size of a ballroom” (p. 192).

People were so desperate that they sold their children.  “Before they died they sold their offspring, more often than  not to couples who could not have children of their own.  … Wu Jingxi got five yuan for his nine-year-old son from a stranger, a sum which covered the cost of a bowl of rice and two kilos of peanuts.  His heartbroken wife, an inquiry discovered, cried so much that her swollen eyes were losing their vision” (pp. 207-208).

Cannibalism occurred, not surprisingly.  “A few people ate human flesh. … Soon the practice appeared in every region decimated by starvation, even in a relatively prosperous province such as Guangdong.” (p. 320).  Furthermore, cannibalism led to an increase in practices that were decidedly not socialist.  “Human flesh, like everything else, was traded on the black market” (p. 321).  And cannibalism was not restricted to humans. “Before the pigs died of hunger they turned on each other. … In parts of Jiangyin county, for instance, many of the pigs froze to death, but quite a few were cannibalized by larger hogs” (p. 142).

Throughout the famine, China continued to export food.  “President John Kennedy, apparently, noted coolly that Beijing was still exporting food to Africa and Cuba even in time of famine, adding that ‘we’ve had no indication from the Chinese Communists that they would welcome any offer of food’”(p.114).

Chairman Mao had decided that farmers should not own property but should live in communes. Peasants should not live in homes but in dormitories. In addition, the family should be replaced by the commune. “ Homes were also pulled down specifically to separate men from women in the great drive to regiment the countryside. … Most of the displaced people ended up not in dormitories as envisaged by model communes but living on the streets, destitute” (p. 53).

The source of this information is very surprising indeed.  It comes from Renmin Ribao (People’s Daily), China’s national daily newspaper.  It was reported in the paper way back in 1958, in two separate stories, on October 6th and 13th.  There is no mention of the numbers of people living on the streets.  As for the reason for this destructiveness, it reflects a slogan used by some of the people who tore down homes: “Destroy Straw Huts in an Evening, Erect Residential Areas in Three Days, Build Communism in a Hundred Days” (p. 53).  In other words, it was sheer idiocy for the sake of a cause.

SARS (2003)

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome” which is a wide-open definition that encompasses many diseases common in the affected regions. Symptoms range from flu-like to pneumonia.8 Dr. Frank Plummer, director of the National Microbiology Laboratory in Canada stated, “Of course, the case definition of SARS is a little loose.”9 On March 15, 2003 the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a global alert warning of a new virus spreading through Asia and causing Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), a potentially fatal disease, similar to pneumonia. Photos from China depicting ballet dancers and bridal parties wearing white masks appeared in western newspapers while health departments across the country issued notices to hospitals detailing the symptoms of the new virus and asking for immediate notification of suspect cases. Until the global alert, reports referred to an “unknown virus” first striking in Guangdong Province, China, although some reports placed the origin in the Philippines. With the March 15 WHO report, the SARS virus became official and reports of new cases came flooding in.

By late May, officials had reported over 8,000 cases worldwide, with almost 700 deaths.1 Of the 65 suspected SARS victims in the US, all but a few had traveled by airplane to areas where the outbreak has been most severe, including mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Hanoi and Toronto. The Chinese economy took a hit and some Chinese airline routes were virtually empty due to SARS fear.2

The SARS outbreak revived discussion of forced quarantine. According to a study by the American Public Health Laboratory Association and quoted by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, few cities had enough hospital space to quarantine patients in the event of a large-scale outbreak of an infectious disease like SARS. According to Lawrence O. Gostin, director of the Center for Law and the Public’s Health at Georgetown University’s Law Center, public health laws date back to the 19th century and are “wholly inadequate to deal with an emergency.”

The need for public health law reform is urgent,” said Mr. Gostin. “It should have provisions for surveillance, vaccination, treatment, isolation and quarantine in a way that gives decisive powers to health authorities while respecting the Constitution.” All but one of the SARS victims submitted to voluntary isolation. The one exception, a New York man, was involuntarily contained until his symptoms passed. Federal quarantine law now includes SARS among its disease guidelines.

Mr. Gostin was the author of the draconian Emergency State Health Powers Act, which has been adopted (fortunately in softened form) by 22 states. According to Gostin, “The need for effective state compulsory power is beyond doubt. But that’s not a given in our country, which is now so tied to the rhetoric of individual rights. It seems we’ve lost the tradition of the common good.3

Feinstein, Dianne

(born June 22, 1933) Senior US Senator (D) from California who served as Chairwoman and Ranking Democrat of the Senate Intelligence and Judiciary committees and is a key figure in the RussiaGate investigations, wittingly or unwittingly colluded with Chinese intelligence for 20 years. Feinstein argued, “there is no deep state,” amid allegations (now fact) of FBI political corruption. In 1955 while a student at Stanford, Feinstein personally hosted a delegation from the Soviet Writers Union when they toured the campus. As mayor of San Francisco, Feinstein issued an official city proclamation in support of the World Festival of Youth and Students, held in Moscow. The event was organized by the Soviet-controlled World Federation of Democratic Youth and was supported by the Communist Party USA in 1986.

She is married to investment banker Richard Blum and has one child from her first marriage that ended in divorce after 3 years.

Feinstein traveled to Moscow that same year as part of a trade delegation of 450 U.S. businessmen and public officials. A little over a year later, on Jan. 27, 1987, Soviet Consul General Valentin Kamenev presented Feinstein with a Soviet streetcar: “A streetcar named desire.” Also present at the ceremony was Viktor Zhelezny, deputy chief of public transport for the Russian Republic. In 1990, a young woman was raped by a foreign Feinstein money-backer at a $4,700-a-plate Dianne Feinstein fundraiser.

Dianne Feinstein’s career in liberal politics began when Governor Pat Brown appointed her to the California Women’s Board of Terms and Parole. She would go on to get elected to the San Francisco County Board of Supervisors. Feinstein became Mayor of San Francisco in 1978 upon the assassination of Mayor George Moscone. She was elected in 1979 and then reelected in 1983. In 1984, Democrat presidential candidate Walter Mondale seriously considered her for vice president, but passed her over for Geraldine Ferraro. In 1990, Feinstein made an unsuccessful bid for Governor of California, losing to Republican Senator Pete Wilson. However, she did win his Senate seat in a special election and has been reelected three times. When coming into office Feinstein distanced herself from the Clinton administration. She voted against the North American Free Trade Agreement and opposed the 1993 Clinton Health Care Plan. Feinstein was re-elected in 1994 by a 47%-45% margin, in what was one of the most closely watched elections that year.

Feinstein is currently the Chairman of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee. She endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in June 2007 and later pushed her for the vice presidential nomination. Dianne Feinstein was mentioned as a possible candidate for Governor of California again in 2010, however, in February 2010, she announced she would not be running for Governor.

Feinstein supported the Iraq war resolution in the vote of October 11, 2002 but has said she was misled by the President. She is also strongly opposed to 2nd amendment rights, one of her first accomplishments in the Senate was passing an assault weapons ban and she unsuccessfully sponsored legislation that would require licensing of all guns. While she is not considered a conservative, Feinstein is considered more moderate than most Democrats from the San Francisco Bay Area. Feinstein supports the USA PATRIOT Act saying it helps the “protection of the American people.” She supported the Bush tax cuts in 2001 and supported the GOP’s Medicare prescription-drug bill in 2003. She is also a supporter of capital punishment and was the main Democratic sponsor of the 2006 constitutional flag burning amendment.

On other issues Dianne Feinstein is quite liberal. She has a solidly pro-abortion voting record. Feinstein called Guantanamo Bay detention camp a “failed experiment” and believes it should be shut down.

Corruption issues

After Feinstein’s unsuccessful gubernatorial race in 1990, she was fined $190,000 for failure to properly report campaign contributions. In 2003, Feinstein was ranked the fifth wealthiest senator, with an estimated net worth of $26 million. By 2005 her net worth had increased up to $99 million. Her 347-page financial disclosure statement draws clear lines between her assets and those of her husband, with many of her assets in blind trusts.

In January 2009, the issue was raised whether Feinstein violated Senate ethics rules to avoid appearances of conflicts of interest when she introduced legislation that gave $25 billion to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to help finance an FDIC proposal to avoid home foreclosures by promoting loan workouts and increasing federal loan guarantees. Just before the FDIC had signed a contract with CBRE, her husband’s firm, to unload foreclosed properties for prices higher than industry averages. Spokesmen for the FDIC, Feinstein and CBRE said there was no connection between the legislation and the contract and that the couple didn’t know about CBRE’s business with FDIC until after it was awarded.

Buried eight paragraphs into a 2018 Politico exposé on foreign efforts to infiltrate Silicon Valley, is a story that involves China and the senior U.S. senator from California, and former chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Democrat Dianne Feinstein:

Former intelligence officials…[said] Chinese intelligence once recruited a staff member at a California office of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, and the source reported back to China about local politics. (A spokesperson for Feinstein said the office doesn’t comment on personnel matters or investigations, but noted that no Feinstein staffer in California has ever had a security clearance.)

Later comes additional detail:

According to four former intelligence officials, in the 2000s, a staffer in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s San Francisco field office was reporting back to the MSS [China’s Ministry of State Security, its intelligence and security apparatus]. While this person, who was a liaison to the local Chinese community, was fired, charges were never filed against him. (One former official reasoned this was because the staffer was providing political intelligence and not classified information—making prosecution far more difficult.) The suspected informant was ‘run’ by officials based at China’s San Francisco Consulate, said another former intelligence official. The spy’s handler ‘probably got an award back in China’ for his work, noted this former official, dryly.

In 2013, the FBI approached the senator to apprise her that her office director, Russell Lowe, was being investigated under suspicion of spying for China. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Feinstein’s hometown paper, this staffer, who had worked with Feinstein for almost 20 years, drove her around in San Francisco and “served as gofer in her San Francisco office and as a liaison to the Asian American community, even attending Chinese Consulate functions for the senator.”  Lowe “has deep and ongoing involvement with pro-China communist activists and organizations”.1

In early August 2020, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures. Bartiromo asked Pompeo about Senator Feinstein’s office director / driver following Feinstein’s recent pro-China comments. Pompeo then dropped a bomb on Feinstein.

Mike Pompeo: Maria I saw the statement by Senator Feinstein, I found it perplexing. I saw statements of senior American CEOs from the big tech companies this week saying they hadn’t heard or seen about intellectual property theft from the United States. That’s crazy talk. Here’s the good news. The good news is we’re getting nearly every member of Congress aligned along the administration’s policies with China. When we voted for Hong Kong freedom there were over 400 votes in the House and nearly every vote in the Senate… I think the tide is turning. Not only in the United States but all across the world the threat of the Chinese Communist Party is becoming clearer and clearer… I talked at the Nixon Library about this not being a battle about China but about authoritarianism and freedom. That’s the fight America needs to be engaged on…

Maria Bartiromo: I was struck by Dianne Feinstein because didn’t she have a driver for 20 years that we ended up finding out was a Chinese spy?

Mike Pompeo: We did. You’ll recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif (Iran’s Foreign Minister) there too. There’s something not quite right. And this is not consistent with America’s national security in either case. These are adversaries that intend harm for her state of California and I wish she would not engage in this kind of rhetoric and these kind of meetings that undermine these kind of efforts.
