Former mayor of Danzhou to be executed for highest corruption ever recorded
https://en.crimerussia.com/international...ent-video/

Quote:Police of the PRC searched the house of Zhang Qi, 57, the former mayor of Danzhou and found a large amount of cash, as well as 13.5 tons of gold in ingots in a secret basement of his home, reported local media.

About half a billion dollars in gold.


Quote:In addition to the mayor’s post, the official held others, such as the Secretary of the Communist Party. According to unofficial reports, in addition to the gold, cash worth 268 billion yuan was discovered.

About 37 billion dollars in liquid cash.

Quote:Luxurious real estate with a total area of ​​several thousand square meters, which the former city manager had been hiding for a long time, became the cherry on the cake for the Chinese Anti-Corruption Committee.

I'm still not sure how he got caught. Obviously he didn't steal it all overnight, but I'm sure he has connections who probably have similar stashes. Maybe he lost standing with the wrong party member who was able to finally blow the whistle on him.

two scoops
two genders
two terms

RE: Former mayor of Danzhou to be executed for highest corruption ever recorded
Chinese version of (((them))):

We've discovered half a billion dollars worth of illegally procured gold.
We're taking the quarter billion dollars worth of illegal gold to the evidence locker.
We've secured the 125 million dollars worth of gold pending the trial of the official.
The official has been executed and we can now release the 62.5 million dollars worth of gold back to the state treasury.

RE: Former mayor of Danzhou to be executed for highest corruption ever recorded
I had drinks with a friend of mine last week. She is very well connected in China, and has a few billionaire guys trying to lock her down. She was telling me that the crackdown by China on guys spiriting away fortunes has lead to a lot of panic by wealthy Chinese on what to do with the cash. If it can't leave, and splashing it around locally draws too much attention, they are stuck building bunkers for now.

It seems we are going to see more of these situations.

I don't like a lot of China's policies but cracking down on the elite (even if skewed) is something western countries don't do at all. Western nations are entirely neo libertarian Jewish controlled proxies..tbh.

Probably hiding it for the people who are now taking it off him.

They will just find somewhere else to put it.

If I was a Communist mastermind I'd be considering how to use this scandal to crackdown on more rich and make more money for the party.

RE: Former mayor of Danzhou to be executed for highest corruption ever recorded
Something seems weird about this to me. China is a highly monitored society that runs on corruption. He wasn't just some random guy who was hiding his wealth, he was a former mayor who had government connections.

I bet he was hiding all that gold and money for them and did something that pissed them off. This is damage control/scapegoating to make him look like a "criminal".

Edit: LOL you guys commented the same thing as I was typing^^

Ever see those movies where a petty crook unexpectedly ends up with a huge haul of cash/diamonds/whatever that makes him crap himself because he's unexpectedly stepped into the big leagues?

Part of me thinks that this is just a run-of-the-mill schmuck who built a system of skimming a couple percent off the top back when China was a shithole but a few decades later money has gone from a trickling stream to the Niagara falls and his two percent skim has become a billion liter dam. So there he is...

...watching this retarded amount of wealth stack up and wondering just what the hell he's supposed to do with it all.

RE: Former mayor of Danzhou to be executed for highest corruption ever recorded
Just did some google searching, Danzhou is state on the island of Hainan in South China. They seem to want to make Hainan a free trade zone by 2025, while also legalizing gambling and visa-free access for 59 countries. This is not the first case of officials taking bribes or criminal activity in that area.

To me it seems like China wants to make this like a new Macau or something similar. In the process of doing that they have to remove people who will cause problems and have the most power and money.

One of the richest men in Macau (Stanley Ho) got his start running the black market smuggling goods and skimming off the early commodities trade to China. Then he invested all that money into casinos and tourism which made Macau a huge mecca for gambling.

He recently retired and I think his net worth is something like 3 billion. I'm guessing he's a lot richer than that with property that's off the books too. A lot of these tycoons invest heavily in dense metropolitan asian real estate and they hold it forever.

Now guys like Stanley Ho are looked at as respected entrepreneurs when dude was more or less a mobster back in the day. You see the smart corrupt dudes like Ho know when to parlay that into legitimate business.

Even though Las Vegas is bigger and more corporate Macau should actually have the title of sin city.

It seems we are going to see more of these situations.

The antiquities trade was inflated for awhile because wealthy Chinese were using it as a way to shuffle around huge amounts of money. A few million dollars purchased in the form of a rare Ming vase is easier to hide than gold ingots. I'm not sure how they cracked down on that but I think some antiques dealers were blackmailing or reporting their clients.

Overseas real estate is the traditional route though. Some Chinese banks were helping the rich launder money but after awhile the party officials cracked down on that too.

The more sophisticated wealthy Chinese do it through relatives who get a free house or two in the deal. California has quite a few of these people in the wealthier suburbs.

I also wouldn't give too much weight into what some Chinese girl says about billionaires. Some Chinese girls like to brag about this type of stuff to inflate their own worth with face but the reality is that these billionaire guys have huge harems of women. They don't need to "lock" anyone down there are tons of women knocking on their door already.

I know a fairly wealthy guy in Singapore (not billionaire by any stretch but multi millionaire easily) and the amount of pussy he was getting was silly and he was a small fish comparatively speaking. His bigger baller business friends (some were mainland Chinese) always had hot women around.

The billionaire tier are the types of guys who build executive fuck chamber KTV lounges with crystal chandeliers and gold furnishings in their towers. They can go down to a beauty pageant and pretty much clean it out for the night.

RE: Former mayor of Danzhou to be executed for highest corruption ever recorded
Honestly, the corruption of China is a feature of their system, not a bug. Corrupt officials make the state richer over time, because of the capital controls.

Money cannot be taken out of China easily, without the government's permission. Meanwhile, officials are given near-absolute control over their territory and companies, which allow them to cheat their workers and peasants under them. They pay the Communist party the official amount owed, and keep all of the remaining ill-gotten gains for themselves.

However, the ultra party-elite of China know of which officials are hoarding cash, but say nothing. They monitor them and see if they do a good job of hoarding or not. If they do a good job, they let the corrupt official remain so he can continue making a lot of money. This continues for years, until they finally feel like he becomes a threat or is planning an escape. Then the trap is sprung, and they clean out the corrupt official as one of the "good guys" but all of his stolen money is then kept by the state (and never returned to the peasants who were robbed).

In this way, China makes a lot more money than they would from their tax rates. A lot of Westerners are attracted to China's low tax offers, but in reality the Chinese are just waiting until their Cash Cow is fat enough before they go in for the kill.

I know about this model of collecting taxes from reading about it in the Roman times. Tax collectors were usually the biggest scumbags the Romans could find, who Romans knew would abuse the people and collect far more tax than they were supposed to. The Romans would get their taxes owed while the tax collector hoarded tons of money for himself in secret. But of course high-up Roman officials knew the corruption would occur, and once the tax-collector was fat enough they would take his money and execute him. In this way Romans could collect a far higher tax-rate from the citizens without creating unrest among the citizenry. The citizens felt relieved when a corrupt tax-man was punished, not realizing it was all part of the scam. It's a good cop-bad cop routine.

RE: Former mayor of Danzhou to be executed for highest corruption ever recorded
"With prosperity assured, and elite corruption confronted, Congress anointed Xi Jinping, the most honest, competent official of his generation, to succeed President Hu. In its first year, Xi’s anti-corruption campaign saw ten thousand officials passed over for promotion for concealing information and one-hundred thirty-thousand demoted or disciplined for making false declarations. By 2016, prosecutors had charged sixty-three senior officials and ministers with corruption, released confessions from fifty-seven thousand Party members who made restitution and accepted demotions and seen Yunnan’s corrupt Party Secretary, Bai Enpei, sentenced to death. By 2018, anti-corruption squads had investigated 1.3 million bureaucrats, filed a million court cases, issued one hundred thousand indictments, captured thousands of overseas fugitives and jailed or executed one-hundred twenty high-ranking officials–including five national leaders, twelve generals, a dozen CEOs and Sun Zhengcai, former Chongqing Party chief, who was sentenced to life in prison for taking huge bribes. After a 2019 industrial explosion in Tianjin killed one-hundred sixty-five people, the magistrate found that petty bribery had led to weak code enforcement, sentenced the responsible official to death, and jailed forty-nine of his colleagues.

Graft investigators unannounced inspections now resemble elite athletes’ doping tests. An Anhui inspection team telephoned an official four times between 7:31-7:35 one evening about his poverty alleviation efforts. He was showering and, when he failed to answer, they reported him for obstruction and moved to dismiss him. Happily, through social media, the public came to his defense and he was exonerated.

Knowing that that ten percent of their statements will be audited, even deputy county officials now report their marital status, overseas travel, criminal record, wages, other earnings, family properties, stocks, funds, insurance and investments. If they refuse to answer questions, or collude with, or protect accomplices, they are detained immediately."

Thats how communism works.

Poor people <<< Massive gulf >>> The rich/corrupt <<< >>>The rich and powerful who can have you executed <<<

Similar to late stage ultra capitalism in the West but more murder and corruption out in the open.

Yes this racket is ancient and besides Rome this goes back to legalism in China. A lot of these rackets were codified in legalist bureaucratic text. The great ancient authoritarian civilizations always had a very keen sense of human nature and how to exploit it for maximum benefit.

Here's another perspective..the corrupt officials know this is the game too but they feel they can get some benefit from it in the mean time.

It's part of human nature and Confucian culture in northeast Asia. I'm sure in Rome a lot of these officials knew their time was limited but they were greedy nihilistic men with low impulse control. As the state planned.

They feel that if they just stay above water and follow the rules so to speak that they can make do in society.

Spot on. Take everything Chinese say with a grain of salt, especially women who fall prey to the whims of the elite. Even the only child of a wealthy Shanghai family still has to bow to the right people in order to save face and keep the favors coming in.

Chinese still arrange marriages at this level. And you are right, none of these guys were trying to "lock her down" as much as she would like to think. But it is strange how rich guys will blow through a spa full of stunning women on Saturday, then supplicate to a women of high status on Monday.

I don't like a lot of China's policies but cracking down on the elite (even if skewed) is something western countries don't do at all. Western nations are entirely neo libertarian Jewish controlled proxies..tbh.

In this West this kind of corruption for a mayor is utterly impossible. The West had installed surveillance mechanism in the administration even in the 19th century. Meanwhile China was exploitative even before the arrival of Western conquerors and fellow Whites giving them the glories of communism.

But it's not surprising frankly - the communist party has so much power concentrated that a mayor can ferret billions away due to sheer fear. And there are hardly any mechanisms in place to fight back against that.

Capitalism has also massive faults like the absolutey certainty that oligopolies/monopolies will develop unless someone at the government agencies busts them, creates real competition.

In China a government official enriching himself via real-estate - what can you do when even the few whistleblowers, officials and journalists get jail-time for that? The mayor likely ruined the lives of countless men's lives who opposed him.

Oh - and executing that guy won't change much. Some officials will get more greedy seeing how much you can make. They will just create better runaway plans in Vancouver.

It makes sense Xi is such a hardass. Xi is a stockholm syndrome survivor as well as Communist royalty.

Read his family history.

He was born to a high-ranking communist General. His father was imprisoned and executed during the Cultural Revolution. Xi, the good son, was not killed but sent to a reeducation camp. He served hard time. He was released, and amazingly regained lost standing and face. He then worked his way back up through the ranks.

Eventually, he must have been selected by Communist officials because they knew the Communist party was Xi's life. Xi's father was matyred, Xi himself a survivor of torture but also no where else to go except the Communist party. Xi is a hardcore indoctrinated stockholm survivor into the system of Communism. His loyalty was always assured. It's not surprising someone like him got promoted to the very top.

Now as supreme leader, Xi is like a pitbull unleashing the same punishments he got from Mao during the cultural revolution on other corrupt scum inside of his party. He's basically the Chinese Batman/Punisher or something like that. His mind is not even close to normal and most Chinamen probably poop their pants when he is around.

I suppose the entire intention of Mao's cultural revolution was to produce zealots like Xi all along. It worked, the man is without a doubt a terror inside of his own party.

When someone makes a false claim about Capitalism, I, Captain Capitalism, swoop in to save the day!

Dun da duuuun!

Lesson of the day: monopolies are created by government who are in hands with the biggest competitor who use regulations to make it harder for competition to remove them from the market. Government doesn't increase competition. It decreases it.

Comcast: It would be nice if we could keep other internet companies from competing with us.

Gov (Obama): What if I institute Net Neutrality to hide to the regulation of the internet through a nice term that assumes we are keeping it low cost and free of corruption?

Comcast: I like the way you think. Here's some money.

I see Chinese biggest achivement is not their economy, which sells slave labor to western firms, but rather the fact that allmost no one knows that communist China is a result of a genocide of gigantic proportions. According to the Dutch historian and China expert Frank Dikötter, 45 million Chinese died of an unnatural death between 1958 und 1962 (1). Younger people here in West Germany will tell you that Communism is good. These are current and future voters!
