Gordon Chang, expert on China and author of THE GREAT U.S. - CHINA TECH WAR, appeared on TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT Monday to speak further on the likelihood that Dong Jingwei, the 57-year-old head of counterintelligence for the Chinese Ministry of State Security, had flown from Hong Kong to California on February 10 and defected to the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, bringing with him a treasure trove of secret information.

Chang reiterated that he thinks the story is true.

China is denying that this happened, of course, and both BEIJING DAILY and the Hong Kong publication SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST have reported that Dong is in China doing whatever spooky things he normally does in the land of Chinese spooks, such as giving presentations at spy-catcher seminars.

https://www.scmp.com/news/china/politics/article/3137958/top-chinese-spy-catcher-dong-jingwei-warns-agents-look-out

Chang does not believe their reports, as “China has every reason in the world to parade this guy in front of the cameras. That would squelch all sorts of rumors that are damaging to the regime. Now, China hasn’t done that, and that to me says that we have him, and that he, in fact, defected.”


RELATED READING:  Info from Chinese defector might change the course of history

Incidentally, the SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST story makes reference to the “new anti-espionage regulation released in April” that applies to “not only Chinese government departments, but also social groups and businesses, supplemented with lists of Chinese entities that are assigned counter-espionage responsibilities.” This onerous new law has received very little press in the United States, so I'm taking the opportunity here to describe it. Under this law, once entities been designated by the government, they're required to watch for and prevent foreign espionage activity. They must “vet and train personnel, particularly ahead of foreign trips, after which they must be debriefed about any national security issues.” This law treats even universities and private businesses as if they’re “sensitive government agencies.”

https://abc17news.com/news/national-world/2021/04/26/china-targets-foreign-spies-and-hostile-forces-with-new-anti-espionage-rules/

More on this soon, but for now, back to the Chang interview. Tucker brought up the fact that the media are suddenly changing their tune on the origin of the virus, as if they knew...somehow...they could no longer get away with spouting their original fairy tale about bat soup. And Chang noted what seems to be a similar shift of opinion among officials of the Biden administration. This story out of Australia mentions that same shift as evidence that the defection probably happened.

https://www.news.com.au/world/coronavirus/chinese-spy-dong-jingwei-defects-to-the-west-while-offering-covid-secrets/news-story/d61277b586d043c6942bcce7b8b70d44

Chang said this could be due to any of a number of things, perhaps political pressure, but he thinks it’s because they now have evidence of a leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Even more important is the information that the Chinese military was working with that lab as part of its bioweapons program.

As for China intentionally releasing the virus, Chang believes this scenario is possible but unlikely, given that they didn’t yet have a vaccine. He thinks it was a mistake, and that China “wasn’t able to contain it.” On the other hand, he noted that while foreigners typically believe the leak was accidental, Chinese nationals are more likely to think it was released on purpose. They know their government all too well.

We came across another report from that same Australian news outlet that provides a lot of context for this alleged defection. It says that no “convincing” photo of Dong has been released since last September, and the one that's purported to be him isn't persuading anyone. This story also includes some intriguing background on Dong’s daughter.

https://www.news.com.au/world/asia/who-is-dong-jingwei-why-us-china-wont-prove-they-have-spymaster/news-story/dc431d5bd5c547bae82c71e769cbc29f

All we’d seen in the press about Dong Yang was that she'd been studying at a California university, but now there’s more: She’s reportedly the ex-wife of Alibaba executive Jiang Fan. Alibaba, an international tech firm, has been in the crosshairs of the CCP in recent months. The company is being scrutinized for alleged “antitrust” and “corruption” issues. Jack Ma, Alibaba’s CEO, “disappeared” for several weeks earlier this year.

Since that time, Ma has reportedly “embraced supervision.” (Ah, there’s a euphemism for you.) And he rarely appears in public or makes public statements. The CCP appears to be cracking down in general on billionaires and academics. Interesting case in point: at the same time we were hearing denials of a nuclear accident of some kind at the China Taishan power plant, one of its leading nuclear scientists, Vice President of Harbin Engineering University Zhang Zhijian, reportedly “fell” from his building. No details were given.

Another billionaire, the chairman of a Chinese high-tech firm, got in hot water and was ordered to “keep a low profile” after publishing a historic poem as part of a media campaign. This poem was critical of an ancient emperor. In China, criticism of emperors is banned on social media, as it could be interpreted as criticism of their current leader-for-life, Xi Jinping.

(Wow, you thought censorship on American social media was bad! On the other hand, this story gives us a peek at just how bad it can get, and almost certainly WILL get if we don’t weaken the power of Big Tech.)

Another billionaire, this one in agriculture, lost control of his business after being arrested over a minor property dispute. He’s since been charged with “seeking quarrels and provoking trouble.”

So our speculation is that this kind of crackdown by the CCP might have had some impact on Dong’s daughter, considering her ties, and might even have something to do with the defection. Just a hypothesis. We’ll see if anyone else makes this connection.

I’ll leave you with the words being (falsely?) attributed to Dong from that seminar, as they relate to the way China is cracking down on business moguls and, ironically, might even describe what Dong himself has done by defecting: “In particular, some individuals are willing to be ‘internal traitors,’ secretly colluding with foreign spies and intelligence agencies and hostile forces to engage in anti-China activities. Individuals ‘act behind the scenes’ and send funds to hostile forces through illegal channels to support anti-China activities. These ‘traitors’ and behind-the-scenes gold masters’ have severely endangered the country’s political security. They will eventually be nailed to the pillar of shame in history.”

Translation: we need to keep this man, and his daughter, safe.

    Been praying for many months that the lies would be exposed, knowing how much Almighty GOD hates lying. Lies from our own government, as well as any other government that denies freedom to their people. That is a lot of lies! i am praying this defector and all his information will be exposed so that everyone will know the truth. i am praying for his and his daughter's safety, and if they do not know our Savior, Jesus, they will come to know him now. Please LORD JESUS, let it be so.

    We have probably heard the last of the Chinese intelligence defector. If indeed he has info about "the big guy" and Hunter I'm sure he will disappear. Between Biden, MSM, big tech, corrupt leftists, corrupt Judicial branch, and the corrupt FBI and other 3-letter groups there will be another 'accident' or 'suicide' very soon. Not only do Joe and Hunter need to protect their money tree, they also need to be able to cover themselves. Another thing we can watch for will be something similar to what the Chinese are doing in squelching any opposition to the party line. In America's case read Democrat's agenda

    While this could be a God Send for the Intelligence Services(I.S.), this could also be a setup for disinformation, as in purposefully deceiving us with the idea in mind that I.S. will attempt to look for the defector's given deceptions using I.S. computers thereby exposing physical and virtual locations of those networked computers.
    Fact is, China already knows everything about us because we use Apple phones made in China which probably possess spyware electronics in them (can you tell what's in a microchip made in China without cutting the chip open to see what's in it?), and Google, per Tucker Carlson story several years ago, worked on a project with the Chinese Military, and Android phones are Google's Linux variant. There are no other cell phones. Every type of cell phone that America uses have the capability of exposing even the topmost Government personnel information, and NO ONE even realizes this. After having worked with electronics since the early 1970s and software languages since mid 1970s, I know these things ARE possible.
    I have told people for over 30 years to open up your electronics and look at the chips on the circuits to see where those chips are made. Nothing says "made in USA" anymore.
    And that breaks my heart. I have no more faith in Americans. They have all let their brains turn to mush on dope&drugs & socialists(=the "Zi" part of Na+Zi!).
    And when Maxine "Adolf-Hitler" Waters tells her Only+Black+Lives+Matter+Gestapo to get in the faces of Trump supporters and threaten me, just like Adolf Hitler told his Gestapo to harrass his opponents in the 1920s before Hitler rose to power, I am left with the realization that if we do NOT stop the democrats' Nationalistica+Zocialistica mentality, nothing will matter anymore because the rest of the world WILL destroy the USA of Na+Zi Democrats!

    I believe the Chinese government did release the virus on purpose. Hundreds of thousands of people were protesting in the streets of Hong Kong during the summer and into the fall of 2019. I remember reading somewhere how the Hong Kong protests were beginning to spill over into China. The Chinese Communist Party celebrated 70 years of power October 1, 2019. Surely they were very cognizant of the 69 years after which the Soviet Union fell. Just a quick search of Chinese Communist Party 70 years gave this article..... https://edition.cnn.com/2019/09/27/asia/china-oct-1-national-day-xi-jinping-intl-hnk/index.html

    I am a longtime PTA mom and housewife in Maryland. On Monday, March 16, 2020 around 11:30pm I received a Facebook Messenger message from Sarah Palin... I had subscribed to her list. Australia had the "antidote" to the lab created virus ...the antidote was surprising but brought to them by Chinese covid19 patients coming to Australia for treatment at Australian hospitals. Chloroquine a previous generation malaria drug and/or Lopinivar/Ritonivar 4th generation HIV drugs Within a day or two I could only find the article from the link I saved and not from any type of search no matter how many ways I searched for it. Australia had 70 hospitals sign up to treat hospitalized covid19 patients this way.... they only have 910 deaths from covid19 .... this is only 1 successful treatment I have seen and I am not even in the medical field. Americans have suffered so much unnecessarily. https://m.analyzingamerica.org/breaking-australian-disease-expert-claims-they-have-cure-for-coronavirus/?utm_source=palin&fbclid=IwAR2P4wL9ULs9Brlrun-BR2whgtBbbQnsVyZS_4sEKlBNsrnYj086G0wbp5s

    I believe the Chinese government did release the virus on purpose. Hundreds of thousands of people were protesting in the streets of Hong Kong during the summer and into the fall of 2019. I remember reading somewhere how the Hong Kong protests were beginning to spill over into China. The Chinese Communist Party celebrated 70 years of power October 1, 2019. Surely they were very cognizant of the 69 years after which the Soviet Union fell. Just a quick search of Chinese Communist Party 70 years gave this article..... https://edition.cnn.com/2019/09/27/asia/china-oct-1-national-day-xi-jinping-intl-hnk/index.html

    I am a longtime PTA mom and housewife in Maryland. On Monday, March 16, 2020 around 11:30pm I received a Facebook Messenger message from Sarah Palin... I had subscribed to her list. Australia had the "antidote" to the lab created virus ...the antidote was surprising but brought to them by Chinese covid19 patients coming to Australia for treatment at Australian hospitals. Chloroquine a previous generation malaria drug and/or Lopinivar/Ritonivar 4th generation HIV drugs Within a day or two I could only find the article from the link I saved and not from any type of search no matter how many ways I searched for it. Australia had 70 hospitals sign up to treat hospitalized covid19 patients this way.... they only have 910 deaths from covid19 .... this is only 1 successful treatment I have seen and I am not even in the medical field. Americans have suffered so much unnecessarily. https://m.analyzingamerica.org/breaking-australian-disease-expert-claims-they-have-cure-for-coronavirus/?utm_source=palin&fbclid=IwAR2P4wL9ULs9Brlrun-BR2whgtBbbQnsVyZS_4sEKlBNsrnYj086G0wbp5s
