Chinese National Convicted of Unlawful Entry of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida

Critics say that the nation’s leaders, agencies, and news media spend all their time spying on American citizens or the Trump administration that they are missing the real culprits such as the Chinese and the proponents of the New World Order.

Yujing Zhang, a 33-year old,Chinese national, was convicted by a South Florida federal jury on Thursday of unlawful entry of restricted buildings or grounds, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1752(a)(1) (Count 1), and also making false statements to the U.S. Secret Service, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001 (Count 2) (Case No. 19CR80056).

Zhang is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Roy K. Altman, in Fort Lauderdale, on November 22, 2019, at 10 a.m.  Zhang faces a maximum statutory sentence of 1 year in prison, up to 1 year of supervised release and up to a $1,000 fine as to Count 1, and a maximum statutory sentence of 5 years in prison, up to 3 years of supervised release and up to a $250,000 fine as to Count 2.

According to the trial record, Zhang fraudulently gained entry onto the restricted grounds at the Mar-a-Lago Club where the U.S. President and other persons protected by the U.S. Secret Service were temporarily visiting.  U.S. Secret Service agents detained Zhang at the main reception area due to her suspicious actions. Zhang was then escorted off the property for further questioning. During questioning, Zhang repeatedly misrepresented to U.S. Secret Service agents that she was at the Mar-a-Lago Club to attend a “United Nations Friendship Event.”

While economically advanced, the Chinese government is brutal to those they deem enemies of the state or spies for the United States.

U.S. Attorney Fajardo Orshan commended the investigative efforts of the U.S.S.S.’s Miami Field Office, and the FBI’s Miami Field Office in this matter.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Rolando Garcia and Michael Sherwin.

The Secret Service’s Uniformed Division’s mission is to protect facilities and venues secured for U.S. Secret Service protectees. Throughout its history, the Uniformed Division has accomplished this mission through a tradition of honor, integrity and a commitment to excellence. When Conservative Base’s editor, Jim Kouri, met with Bush administration officials as a White House guest, during a lunch break Kouri met with members of the U.D.’s special weapons and tactics unit — their version of police SWAT and Arson and Explosion units.

Since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the Uniformed Division has grown both in size and scope of responsibility and is mandated by law to provide physical security for the White House Complex and the Vice President’s residence at the Naval Observatory. It also provides security for the Treasury Department building and foreign diplomatic missions in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Secret Service is seeking capable men and women who can meet the challenges of this mission and help carry on its proud tradition.

Strategic Threat Exists From Chinese Agents’ Economic And Military Espionage: Law Enforcement

In a case out of the Western District of Pennsylvania, Chinese intelligence agents were indicted on charges of computer hacking, stealing economic information, and other related offenses. The five suspects breached the security at six American entities within the U.S. nuclear power plants, as well as metals and solar products industries.

This marked the first time criminal charges had been filed against known state actors for hacking.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) archives: from 2006 through 2014, the Chinese spies identified as Wang Dong, Sun Kailiang, Wen Xinyu, Huang Zhenyu, and Gu Chunhui were officers in what’s been identified as Unit 61398 of the Third Department of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

They were said to have been involved a hacking conspiracy that targeted Westinghouse Electric Co.; U.S. subsidiaries of SolarWorld AG; United States Steel Corp.; Allegheny Technologies Inc.; the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union; and Alcoa, Inc.

An FBI press statement claims that Chinese espionage as well as efforts to steal U.S. research and development (R & D) information amounts to “the most severe counterintelligence threat” facing our country today.

“More than ever, now with President [Donald Trump] standing up to the bullies in China who are seeking to replace America as the world’s great military and economic power, the political leaders in both houses of Congress and with the security and defense agencies must stop their anti-Trump narrative regarding Russia’s penetration of the U.S. government computer systems and the DNC [Democratic National Committee] cyber system,” said former military intelligence operative and police captain Matthew Delahanty.

E.W. “Bill” Priestap, head of the bureau’s counterintelligence division, joined two senior officials in outlining their view of Beijing’s long-term campaign to undermine the United States’ economic and technological dominance.

The Communist Party continues to “dominate every facet of Chinese life,” from religious life to freedom of expression and free trade, according to Priestap at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. “It is therefore alarming that the Chinese government’s economic aggression, including its relentless theft of U.S. assets, is positioning China to supplant us as the world’s superpower,” he’s quoted as saying in the transcript.

Some law enforcement officials told Conservative Base private cyber-security officers and government investigators uncovered proof that China’s Ministry of Security, their top intelligence agency, was most probably behind the hacking of Marriott’s Starwood chain cyber system. That breach alone gave the Chinese intelligence officers the private data of as many as 500 million people including U.S. citizens.

The solution to the problem is to increase awareness of the problem of Chinese intelligence operations, and to conduct aggressive counterintelligence activities against them. Those counterspying activities should include offensive strategic operations to recruit Chinese intelligence officers and use them to identify aggressive Beijing spying operations and disrupt them.

Like the Soviet KGB political police and intelligence services, China’s spy agencies’ foremost mission is maintaining rule of the Communist Party of China. An aggressive counterintelligence program against both the Ministry of State Security and PLA Intelligence Bureau would be an important first step in helping Beijing devolve its authoritarian system into a more democratic one.

China is alleged to have begun a widespread effort to acquire U.S. military technology and classified information and the trade secrets of U.S. companies.
