Big Taiwan corrupted $$$$ Behind Nancy Pelosi going to China’s Taiwan, and Biden/Neocons desperately intend to provoke China to start another conflict

According to CNN, U.S. House Speakers Nancy Pelosi, No. 3 in the government and the most powerful political oligarch in Washington D.C., will visit China’s Taiwan (most likely between August 2nd-3rd) as part of her ongoing tour of Asia. Despite Chinese government already warned of “serious consequences” for meddling in its internal affairs (Taiwan is part of China, has been separated and protected by U.S. since the Chinese revolution of 1949), signaling to support Taiwan “independent” to break away from China.
It’s not surprised that Pelosi, for her historical strong Hawkish and hysterical anti-communist/anti-China stand for several decades, at her last political trip before the mid-term election to Asia, in a move that intend to broke U.S. promise on “One China Policy” that can change the entire future of China-U.S. relations, with possible spark major military tensions with China, is not a coincident. That’s the part of the U.S. desperate attempt to stir another war in Asia that could endanger hundreds of millions of people in the region—just like U.S./NATO behind and prolonging the on-going Russia-Ukraine conflict in Europe, with the benefits of U.S. financial bottom-line.
Pushing the World into the edge of the World War III, to divert the people’s attentions from scrutinizing U.S./Western government real issues, such as: their total failure on combating COVID-19 for the past 3 years; hyperinflation and recessions; racism as well as political chaos and decline of the empire.
Just like what happened in the current Russia-Ukraine conflict, more tensions behind by U.S. around the World means more business for U.S. military industrial complex, and money making opportunity for U.S. business; it’s also the financial gains for the U.S. politicians (and their family) during and after their office, a clear violation of the law.
It’s been well known for Nancy Pelosi and her husband’s corruptions charges for possible insider stock trading; according to the recent media investigation, Pelosi's husband is making massive stock trades (as Congress mulls whether to ban lawmakers and their spouses from trading), his estimated cumulative wealth from the stock at least $46.1 million, includes: Amazon, American Express and PayPal, etc. (https://www.businessinsider.com/nancy-pelosi-stock-trades-congress-investments-2022-7#-20). Many Chinese analysis believes her main reason insist to visit Taiwan, is to shifting public attentions from her “trading gate” scandals, to become an “anti-China” crusader.
Yet little known from western public is Pelosi, neocons and Democrat’s’ close business, financial and personal connections with Taiwan; especially with the powerful Taiwanese lobbyists and the Taiwan's Representative to the United States (the de-fact-to U.S.-approved Taiwanese Embassy in the U.S.) inside D.C. Beltway.
According to the multiple media sources from mainland China and Taiwan (not surprisingly all these information are completely blocked from western media and the Google search, only able to find related information using China’s Baidu Chinese search engine), Taiwan “ambassador” to the U.S. Hsiao Bi-khim, a close ally with the current Taiwan “President” Tsai Ing-wen, are member of “pro-independent” Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) currently running the Taiwan.
For the past several years, Hsiao act as a D.C. “fixer” arranged millions of dollars donations to U.S. government for “humanitarian aids” to Syria, Ukraine as well as U.S. military; Hsiao and her “embassy” also played a big role on multi-billion dollars U.S. weapons sales to the Taiwan, as well as approving U.S. pork sales containing ractopamin that had sparked massive protest in Taiwan against the import.
In return, Hsiao has been invited to speak at a roundtable meeting hosted by the U.S. House China Task Force on July 20th, just few days before Pelosi’s Asia trip. During which panelists called for speeding up arms sales to Taiwan, inviting Taiwan to participate in military exercises, and strengthening U.S.-Taiwan ties.
Hsiao said Michael McCaul, GOP Representative from Texas, chairman of the China Task Force, and Representative California Republican Representative Young Kim jointly proposed the Arms Exports Delivery Solutions Act in July due to increasing provocations by what they called the “Chinese Communist Party (CCP)” (U.S. racist way to call Communist Party of China (CPC)). The bill is intended to ensure the U.S. delivers defensive weapons to Taiwan as soon as possible, she said. The bill was recently incorporated into the House version of the 2023 National Defense Authorization Act as an amendment, and was passed by the House of Representatives.
Taiwan media reported Hsiao was the main person behind arrange Pelosi trip to Taiwan until last moment; and many believes after Pelosi’s retirement she’ll be rewarded with multi-million dollars speaking/consulting opportunity, like former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo under Trump administration, his recent March 2nd-5th after retirement trip to Taiwan, media reports that he was paid $150,000 by Taiwan’s diplomatic office in the U.S. — and may have lobbied for Taiwanese public money on behalf of a U.S. investment fund.
Or, business dealing opportunities; like Kelly Craft, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under Trump administration. According to a Taiwanese source familiar with the matter told media, Craft instruct her assistance Chris White to secretly talked to the Taiwan's Representative to the United States, stressed that she’ll continue support Taiwan and would like them to assist her wealthy Kentucky coal business husband Joe Craft’s company: Alliance Resource Partners L.P. (ALRP) convenience for business cooperation with Taiwanese manufacturers, in return; a possibility of conflict of interests.
Anti-Communism and war mongering is a good business, regardless neocon Republican or liberal Democrats, Pompeo or Pelosi, receiving Taiwanese money against China or Israeli money against Palestine, they’re all work for the money.
While they’re just a bunch of dirty politician, and most likely had violated Federal law (prohibits contributions, donations, expenditures disbursements solicited, directed, received or made directly or indirectly by or from foreign nationals in connection with any federal, state or local election), yet on July 29th the FBI choose to launch multiple raids against African People's Socialist Party (APSP)’s Uhuru House in St. Petersburg, Florida and their Uhuru Solidarity Center in St. Louis, Missouri and the private residence of APSP Chairman Omali Yeshitela also in St. Louis. Claiming that the raids are connected to the Federal indictment of a Russian national, Aleksandr Ionov, alleging that he has been working to spread "Russian propaganda" in the United States, illegally inflicting upcoming U.S. election.
Pelosi, Pompeo or Craft doesn’t seems will going to face any FBI raids and corruption charges.
