On December 26, 2019 a Chinese man got up early to take photos of the sunrise on the premises of the Naval Air Station in Key West according to a report from Jay Weaver of the Miami Herald.
Witnessed ended up spotting Lyuyou Liao around 6:50 a.m. on Thursday walking around a perimeter fence and entering the military installation by going through the rocks along the water.
They initially warned Liao that he was illegally entering a restricted area — Truman Annex — as he shot photos of government buildings near “sensitive military facilities,” based on a federal criminal complaint filed Thursday.
The U.S. Military Police saw him taking photos using his cellphone, approached him and reviewed the pictures. The police officers immediately summoned a federal agent, who arrested Liao for entering naval property with the intent of photographing defense installations.
Liao wove his Miranda rights and told the agent with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service in broken English that “he was trying to take photographs of the sunrise,” based on a complaint affidavit.
However, when Liao gave the agent the pass code to his phone and allowed him to review the images, he found “photographs of Truman Annex on the camera.”
The 27-year-old Liao had his first federal court appearance on Friday afternoon in Key West conducted via a video hookup with Magistrate Judge Patrick Hunt in Fort Lauderdale and Assistant U.S. Attorney Karen Gilbert in Miami. Hunt then appointed the federal public defender’s office to provide Liao with representation and scheduled his pretrial detention hearing for January 6, 2019. Liao will be arraigned next week.
Liao’s arrest is the second time since 2018 that a Chinese national has been charged with taking photos of defense installations at the Key West Naval Air Station.
Key West police caught Zhao Qianli, who claimed that he was a music student from China, for trespassing onto the Naval Air Station.
He subsequently told authorities that he got lost on the tourist trail and did not recognize it was a military base.
Investigators found photos and videos on Qianli’s cellphone in addition to his digital camera that he had taken of government buildings and a Defense Department antenna field on the military facility.
Earlier this year in February, Qianli pleaded guilty to one count of photographing defense installations at the Key West military facility. U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore sentenced Qianli to one year in prison.
Not too long after in March, a Chinese woman was arrested at President Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach after she lied her way into Mar-a-Lago to allegedly attend a “United Nations friendship” event that she was aware had been canceled before she left China.
Yujin Zhang ended up being charged with trespassing in a restricted area and lying to a federal agent.
In September, U.S. District Judge Roy Altman convicted Zhang and sentenced her in in November to eight months in prison
Given China’s rise as a superpower and their expansionist foreign ambitions using soft power, the U.S. will need to keep tabs on China’s attempts to exploit the U.S.’s immigration system.

Trouble in Paradise: Establishment Democrats Working to Eliminate AOC’s House Seat
According to an article from Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, Democrat leadership is making an effort eliminate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s house seat.
Elected in 2018, in New York’s 14th congressional district, AOC has become the face of a new generation of Democrat radicals.
Jarret noted however that AOC’s extreme politics is creating a “divide amongst her own party, even with the head honcho herself, Nancy Pelosi.”
From radical open borders policies to Medicare for All, AOC is pushing the legislative envelope. She has also set up a PAC “Courage to Change” that is currently funding seven House candidates. On Twitter, AOC declared, “it’s time to elect a progressive majority in Congress accountable to strong, grassroots movements that push support for issues like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, & more.”
However, The NY Post noted that Democrat leadership are making efforts to derail her hype train. In the article, the Post noted that AOC “may not last in Congress.” The freshman congresswoman is “Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she’s now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats.”
The Post concluded, “Don’t be surprised when the established Democrats who’ll control redistricting after the 2020 Census does their best to eliminate her seat.”
This recent struggle shows how the culturally radical wing of the Democrat Party is starting to butt heads with the establishment gatekeepers.
This is indicative of a cultural and political realignment where old school Democrats are likely to be eaten alive their radical offspring thanks to demographic shift.
