Obama won’t stay at NYC’s Waldorf, fears Chinese bugs

(From Gothamist)

By Jen Chung

President Obama will be visiting New York City today (he’ll be arriving after 6 p.m., FWIW, and he’s going to see the brilliant musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda) and he won’t be staying at Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Because of Chinese hackers and spies. Read more

    What a nonsense – another American clumsy scheme to sabotage the Chinese thriving business as usual.

    Anyone in the world that does not “inhale” heavily ought to know by now that the most obnoxious, most malicious, and most dangerous spies are no other than the Americans. This fact is well known to the world ever since CIA started plots to overthrow every government on planet who is not to their liking.

    Mr. Edward Snowden – the former US worker for the US spy agency NSA – has driven the last nail to the coffin of the US intelligent network by exposing all NSA’s illegal activities around the world: from bugging many world leaders like presidents of France, Brazil, German Chancellor…to the hacking of Chinese banking/educational/commercial institutions…anything and anyone the US wants to.

    We should recall how the US spy agency planted the listening devices on the 747 Boeing plane which China ordered for president Jiang ZeMin in 1980s as the Chinese Presidential plane. This just shows the blatant disregard of the basic decent integrity/respect for the customers of the US business by the US government.

    Here is the modi operandi of the US government and all its agencies: We all know that the US (or all Western governments) have been committing immoral crimes all the time, all over the world. But whenever one or many of their crimes are about to be exposed, they falsely, loudly and publicly “accuse” other people/government of committing the same crimes.

    Cases in point: the Western governments led by US are constantly accuse many of African leaders of “genocidal crimes” against their people(sic). Who has been committing more genocide in Africa than the Western governments and the white devils?

    The US is so accustomed to accusing Chinese government of cyber-espionage, but Mr. Snowden revelation just exposes the US massive cyber subversive activities, not only against China, but against EVERYBODY in the world!

    The US government drums up the “security risk” of the Chinese private company Huawei operating in US, but it is the US companies like Google, Cisco, Goldman Sage.. that constantly seek ways to sabotage the Chinese economic, financial, security system in order to bring chaos to China!?

    There is a saying in Asia:” The robber always goes to bed with knife/gun” – meaning the robber is always afraid of being robbed because of the insecurity they feel as results of their brutal crimes.

    Mr. Obama is NO exception to the US robbery mentality: trying to avert the condemnation from public for his immoral misdeeds by “accusing” Chinese of allegedly doing the things that his government has been doing on the massive scale!

    Mr. Obama, this out-dated ploy won’t work any more. It is boring and discredited long, long ago.

    I’m happy to see Admiral “Zheng He” here with your global perspectives.

    Chinese people need to go on offensive, in EVERY areas, fields, forums…to debunk all Western lies and misinformation against New China.

    Your efforts make the difference, believe me.
