Former White House strategist Steve Bannon has responded to requests of overseas Chinese communities to sanction corrupt CCP officials individually by freezing their assets and exposing their properties in the United States.
In his joint broadcast with Miles Kwok live in New York, Mr. Steve Bannon said that sanctioning the individuals of the corrupt CCP leadership was a brilliant idea. And this is a central issue that has to be addressed.
Bannon said, “All the wealth that has been put into the properties in London and New York, in Europe by CCP is all money stolen from the Chinese people. This is one of the central issues the Rule of Law Fund needs to address…Why the old hundred names of the Chinese people cannot own their land and properties while families of the CCP leadership like Xi Jinping and Wang Qishan can transfer the people’s money out of the country to buy so many private properties in London, New York, Europe and other western countries.” Bannon said he is going to bring up the issue to upcoming meetings of various organizations including the Committee on the Present Danger in Washington D.C.
The U.S. government is very clear about the number of properties and the amount of money in U.S. bank accounts owned by individuals or families related to the Communist Party leadership in China.
In September of 2018, when the Trump administration made a decision to sanction a Chinese military agency and its director Li Shangfu personally, the CCP government got very nervous and immediately summoned the U.S. ambassador for protest.
After the announcement became headlines of most western media, Chinese officials are horrified like ants in a heated wok. Over 90% of Chinese officials above the county level have family members in the US, besides secret savings. According to estimates, these secret savings amount to five trillion US dollars and the number of related family members exceeds 1.8 million across the globe.
To win the battle,in fact, the U.S. government does not have to freeze or confiscate the assets of CCP officials. If only it makes public the names of children or other family members of the CCP leadership and the amount of wealth or properties they own in the U.S., the CCP leadership would surrender immediately.
And this would also help China push forward the enactment of rules in a property disclosure system and thus promote the rule of law in the country, said Political commentator Zhang Tianliang.
Zhang said, “Although corrupt CCP officials denounce western democracy, they are smart enough to make western countries the refuge for their wealth and family members. They would also try to escape to the west in case the CCP dictatorship collapse. If Donald Trump can unite his western allies to freeze their illegitimate assets, he would also cut off their route for escape.This will definitely help him win the war with the dictatorship, and also be a gesture welcomed by all Chinese.”
