Rumors Abound Of Chinese Vice-Premier Defecting To The U.S.

Click to see full-size image

In recent days, there’s been rumors, especially around Twitter and Chinese Anti-Communist Party media of a high-level defection from the People’s Republic.

Reports are filled with rumors that a vice minister of State Security, Dong Jingwei (董经纬) defected in mid-February 2021.

He allegedly flew from Hong Kong to the United States with his daughter, Dong Yang.

Dong Jingwei supposedly gave the U.S. information about the Wuhan Institute of Virology that changed the stance of the Biden Administration concerning the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, as per the YouTube video in the Tweet above.

Dong is a longtime official in China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), also known as the Guoanbu. His publicly available background indicates that he was responsible for the Ministry’s counterintelligence efforts in China, i.e., spy-catching, since being promoted to vice minister in April 2018.

If the stories are true, Dong would be the highest-level defector in the history of the People’s Republic of China.

Dong’s defection was raised by Chinese officials last March at the Sino-American summit in Alaska, according to Dr. Han Lianchao, a former Chinese foreign ministry official who defected after the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.

In a tweet (below), Han, citing an unnamed source, alleged that China’s foreign minister Wang Yi and Communist Party foreign affairs boss Yang Jiechi demanded that the Americans return Dong and Secretary of State Anthony Blinken refused.

Chinese-language press stories also claim that Dong’s daughter Yang defected with him from Hong Kong on or about Feb. 10. She is allegedly the former spouse of a senior Alibaba Group executive, Jiang Fan, who heads up TMall, China’s big Amazon-like business. Alibaba founder Jack Ma came under fire from Beijing last fall after he criticized Chinese regulators and banks in a public forum in Shanghai. Authorities suspended a planned blockbuster $37 billion IPO for Alibaba’s financial affiliate Ant Group.

Dong “was last seen in public in September 2020,” Han said. His photos have been deleted by the Chinese search engine Baidu, according to some Chinese language news reports abroad.

Former Pentagon, State Department and CIA expert Nicholas Eftimiades, author of Chinese Espionage: Operations and Tactics, called the report “exactly what it is, a rumor. It happens all the time” in the information warfare between Beijing and anti-communist overseas Chinese.

As such, it is unlikely that there would be any official confirmation, but rumors such as these are interesting, keeping in mind that high-profile Chinese citizens frequently disappear and then reappear months later with an apology of some sort, having paid a hefty fine for some sort of misconduct.

Had a number of comments blocked ? . Look up Dr Fucci’s emails have been read where he discusses America paying for bat virus research to be done in Wuhan rather than risk a virus outbreak in America. He knew all about this before anyone else.

eff you

That’s the level of trolling you can manage? How old are you?

u.s. recently made $300 million investment for anti China smearing campaign and is working overtime. It didn’t work out well with the BS of nuclear power plant leakage recently, and it didn’t take long to come up with another BS. It doesn’t look like they are smart. They have to come up with more refined better BS to make it work. It shows the extent of their desperation.


Investment? More Wasting money, at least some delusional Deep-State/NeoCunt Serial BS’er Gaslighter Propagandists have a cushy well paid job. It’s not ony China smearing the lastest Russia-Iran Satellite Fake-News Hoax is inline with that nonsense campaign.

I allow me to add many send out propaganda. So I wait and see. You can take gas on that.


jens propaganda –jibbering on LSD

It wasnt about that. Next month all cars in China will be american ones. China has wider streets and many of them soon will drive good old Humwees.

The drivers will be middle easterns Bunnies having no jobs in their life yet. US has tricked China in Google translation. Easy driving actually is ISIS driving.

ISIS are in big trouble. They are not allowed to kill more then themself, because the muislim heaven is full. We see it at the Lituania – Belarus border. 400 last year could not be killed by them and now they go to Europe.


china has created tariffs on US trash cars—they produce their own—you make lego

eff you

Doesn’t take much to smear China when they openly operate slave camps and steal like dogs at every chance they get. Why don’t we allow China in our space station? Because they stole our technology like dirty rats steal cheeeeeeeese


USA not spelled china—spelled America-CAN’T

USA fights russian and chinese expansionism

Probably he didnt have food to eat as china is going through food shortage

jens holm

We will see if its true or not. I see no proof.

But was my alternative 10-20-30 years of prison and everything I own confiscating, I would try to go somewhere else too.

That would have nothing to do with USA unless I could get free entrence.

jens holm

So far only one minus my opinion. The opponent must be starving hard.

USA 3 million families extreme poverty—40 million food insecure –the 1 million homeless in USA not counted
Russia/China no extreme poverty–no food insecurity


u.s. (Jewish) bankrupt idea of exceptionalism is going against China’s idea of egalitarianism. China is deeply rooted by Confucianism that emphasizes family, harmony, respect, conformity, education, etc. This sorta event seldom happens in China or Asian countries in general. u.s. (Jews) just don’t seem to know about this stuff.

a recent study published online at Atlantic magazine found that Chinese immigrants in USA consider happiness to be harmony; 2nd generation Chinese consider happiness to be the same as ordinary amerikans: money and success

Fog of War

The Khazars win again. Why would the PA agree to this unless its all theater to begin with ?

” The new Israeli government has announced that it will transfer between 1.1 and 1.4 million short-dated Pfizer shots to Palestine but in return will receive a shipment originally meant for the Palestinian Authority (PA) in autumn.
In a joint statement on Friday, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s office and that of the health and defense ministries said that an agreement had been reached with the PA to share more than a million short-dated shots.

The jabs, which Israel no longer needs as it has sufficient supplies already, will be transferred to the PA, in an agreement signed on Friday. The number of shots is put at around 1.1 to 1.4 million, and the statement adds that “the validity of all vaccine doses delivered to the PA will expire soon.”

Some are coerced, some bribed and some are controlled by them. Those are the main reasons for complicity with the coof 19 shit show.

We saw what happened to the leaders of Burundi and Tanzania or even Lukashenko when they resisted, with the latter being luckier of course.

In the case of PA it was probably coercion and threats as well. Big Pharma wants their merch to be as widely available as possible, it’ll be interesting to see if and how that injection campaign will be carried otu and especially as to how the palestinians will deal with it.

Can you imagine them taking “medicine” they know they don’t need from none other than the zionist occupants?

The US administration a bullshit factory.

jens holm

You dont understand how USA and West work. We are not simpleton one string systems.

But as amny other administrations, they also has to clean themself again and again. For the moment Biden actually try to.

And of course thats takeing out of Your context. I will remind You USA is not Your childcare center. They mainly work for their own country, so they can pay UN with UNICEF to feed You every day.

Thats the Western mistake. When we help people because we want them to help themself, they just grew man and the nwe ones has bigger hands.

jens holm

Thats how it is mister and mistres minus.

You not even has Our systems in Your vocabulary.


after you were terminated as night porter did you obtain employment as LSD evaluator?


The u.s. is the biggest hypocrite nation on earth. Thankfully God hates a hypocrite more than anything so those in charge will pay indeed. But prophesy still has to run its course. Be patient and have faith.

Hard to see FUK og war related to the article. Right now he probatly is hunting Khazars in his barbered wired garden or balcony.

But he will integrate: Soon those ones will speak chinese too.

I heard he was in China as child and blindfolded himself with chopstickers. But thats a roumer too. No one wish that unless they sell chopstickers.

The truth is out there.


If a Chinese high ranking official did in fact commit high treason by defecting to China’s biggest enemy the more interesting question would be: how many million dollars has he been paid by the CIA to forsake his nation, peddle the fake script he was given by has handlers about Covid and gratify his greed? When high ranking Iraqi officials and later Syrian officials committed high treason to join the invading or attacking USA imperial invaders they also parroted fake stories about atrocities and WMD’s which were proven false afterwards.


according to US media trump defected to Russia a few years ago—now Trump exposes Biden as Russian agent—de facto US leader is Vladimir Putin

China Is Right

USA = Replaced By Negroes

Nothing there to “defect” to, except Jew lies

eff you

You aren’t anti-Jew, you’re just pro-China. Have fun typing lies with a gun to your head

You can’t handle the truth

Everything is conspiracy to all of you when it doesn’t suit what you want to believe! Just admit you are all pro Russian pro Iranian and pro Chinese. It’s okay to speak the truth.


No. But I am anti Godless America. How can any Christian support a country that explicitly rejects God in it’s constitution yet says it is a Godly nation, claims to be free yet offers no real freedom except from God’s influence and claims it offers religious freedom yet denies people that freedom?

The U.S. is a Godless deviant hypocritical nation. At least with countries like China, Iran and Russia you know where you stand. None of them makes the false claim of being a beacon of freedom and justice nor do they claim a manifest destiny.

eff you

With China you know where you stand!!!???? You are a joke and know nothing about Chinese intentions. Consider support for Iran and Russia, forget China

Typical Cold War antics.


In reality, defectors are very rarely highly principled people – more often they tend to abruptly switch sides for self serving reasons, not least, to flee potential serious repercussions for some sort of activity that has drawn increasing attention of security surveillance, and they leverage whatever they know (credible or otherwise) to evade the consequences of past actions.

Wishfull thinking. Besides the rumours already spread from the media I found in a few minutes one recent article about him published by the South China Morning Post, HK based and banned in the mainland. It seems he’s still at his post. https://www.scmp.com/news/china/politics/article/3137958/top-chinese-spy-catcher-dong-jingwei-warns-agents-look-out

Mao Zedong and Confucius also defected and started a new life as gay couple in San Francisco, their marriage blessed by Antony Blinken himself. Totally true.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
