A Chinese national was sentenced to five years in prison on September 29, 2020.
He was subsequently ordered to give up more than $4.2 million in drug proceeds that he laundered through a vast cocaine trafficking operation in the U.S.
The Department of Justice’s Office of Public Affairs listed all of the individuals involved in the sentencing of the individual in question, Xueyong Wu:
Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian C. Rabbitt of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger for the Eastern District of Virginia; Special Agent in Charge Wendy C. Woolcock for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Special Operations Division; Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey T. Scott of DEA’s Louisville, Kentucky Field Division; Chief Jason Crosby of the Criminal Investigations Division of the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service (DSS); and Special Agent in Charge James Gibbons of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Chicago, Illinois made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema for the Eastern District of Virginia.
Per court documents, Wu established ties with Latin American drug trafficking organizations to transport and launder their American-based drug revenues. A significant portion of this money was sent back to Mexico through an intricate web of international financial transactions. Wu ended up receiving a cut of the money moved in these transactions as payment for carrying out these laundering operations. The bulk of the money was made through the movement of cocaine or payment for cocaine that was realized within the Eastern District of Virginia.
Trial Attorneys Steve Sola and Kerry Blackburn of the Criminal Division’s Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section and Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael P. Ben’Ary and David A. Peters were involved in the prosecution for this case.
Given how much policymakers prior to Trump have de-emphasized border security, foreign actors have exploited these vulnerabilities. Revisionist powers like China, which have strong inclinations of upsetting the current world order, will take advantage of any perceived weakness in the border to promote illicit activities that undermine the U.S.’s social cohesion. One of the most notable cases being the alarming inflow of fentanyl, originating from China, which is then transported through Mexico and all the way up to the U.S. The result has been one of the most devastating drug epidemics in recent memory.
Whether or not this is a coordinated activity is up for debate. Nevertheless, the U.S. should start taking border security more seriously. Thankfully, the Trump administration has brought some level-headedness into the mix and is making efforts to secure our border through the construction of a wall.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
