Coup d'etat (政變)

There are four dictators in 4 countries that possess "Nuclear Bombs". They threatened the world. Russia invaded Ukraine since Feb 24, 2022, it has been 9 months. I hardly could watch the buildings, people, in many cities in Ukraine have been destroyed. I can't understand why Putin wants to have more lands more atrocities. Putin has threatened Europe to cut their Natural Gas, Crude Oil, and agricultural products. Putin wants to become USSR and the world's largest country again. Everyone thought Russia was the 2nd largest military in the world, but for the past 9 months, we all witnessed Russia's military force is very old and weak.

As China, Xi pipe dream to be the emperor of the world because China became the 2nd largest economy country. Little does he knows, it is the USA made them rich because U.S. former president Jimmy Carter wanted use Chinese cheap labor and vast population (1.4 billion people). At that time Mao just passed away and Mao made China poverty from 3 years "Great Famine" and a decade of "Cultural Revolution". Let alone the Tienanmen Square Massacre in Beijing in 1989, Only one policy, and Hong Kong suppression of protestors in 2019.

Xi was elementary school graduated and due to the Cultural Revolution, he moved with his father to remote area worked as farmer. There were no school opened during a decade, so Xi didn't have Jr. High or High school education. When Deng became the successor of Mao, Deng made education level lower that anyone who at the ages of college could enter college or University. That's why Xi could go to Beijing University without Jr. High/High school education. That's why Xi couldn't speak English and wants the whole world speak Chinese when he becomes an emperor.

Xi was lucky in 2012 to become a Chinese leader for a decade (2 terms). In China, they don't have Presidential Election by the Chinese citizen over 18 yrs old. They have a system that a meeting with 2340 CCP members to raise their hands to pass the election (it is not an anonymous vote). Xi changed the system that he can have 3rd term after two terms, he even can have 4th, 5th, ... till he dies. Wow,

In January of 2020, a Coronavirus started in Wuhan City and spread to the world, millions people died. However, in Western world especially in the USA, we have mRNA vaccine by Pfizer and Moderna that prevented majority of U.S. citizens from the pandemic. I have had two vaccines and one booster shot by Pfizer. However, China is proud not to use foreign country vaccine and have the Chinese people drink some kind of herbal medicine which is not working. Xi ordered to have "Lockdown", "Zero-tolerance", and Nucleic Acid amplification testing. They control the people's cellular phone # with Red, Yellow and Green colors. They weld people's doors to prevent them to go out. They built thousands of "Mobile cabin hospitals but without doctors or nurses to take care of sick people. So, the negative and positive people locked and mix together. Many tragedies happened, people starve to dead, jumped out the tall buildings, emergency cases couldn't go to hospitals or pregnant woman delivered her babies outside of hospital. The prices of food become sky-high that people can't afford them. Many ridiculous things such as goats have to wear masks, Covid test for vegetable, fish, even car engine.

Make long story short. The last Straw that broke the camel's back is a fire in a building in Wulumuiqi Road in Xinjiang burned from 15th floor to 21st floor that caused 10 death and 9 injured (according to CCP official said, but local people said 44 people died) that triggered people's anger that they have been lock-downed for over 100 days. The fire engine couldn't reached to the location. Those cars parked on streets, engines have been frozen and couldn't started. The local citizen's doors have been locked from outside and couldn't opened so people have been burned to dead.

People couldn't tolerate the Xi's "Zero Tolerance policy", lock-down for months. There are many providences from 103 colleges and universities students raised blank white paper up in the air to protest CCP.. People are outrageous shouting "Down with CCP" and "Xi Jin-Ping step down". 反清零抗議行動, 白紙革命, 不要核酸要自由!, 解封全国, 要民主法治, 習近平下台, 共產黨下台,烏魯木齊一場大火燒出中國人民對習近平的不滿 反封控示威活動遍地開花高喊:不要核酸要自由!

My best friend, a bank CEO/Chairman passed away
Posted:Sep 28, 2022 10:23 pm
Last Updated:Nov 18, 2022 6:20 am

I have known to a Caucasian banker CEO/Chairman from Yahoo Personals (that online dating site closed long time ago) since late May 2006. He was a Real Estate mogul that he own houses in San Marino, in Brentwood (the city O.J. Simpson murdered his ex-wife and a waiter) and 2 houses in Santa Monica. His divorce in 1997, his ex-wife got the Brentwood house that almost 1 acre (with swimming pool and tennis court) and one house in Santa Monica. He was like Trump, very good in Real Estate investment, he didn't believe in "Global Warming, Climate Change". I don't like Trump's personality and attitude.

On the first date in June 2006, he told me his story. He got married to his High-School Sweetheart on a day after high school graduation. Both of them were 18 in Washington DC. I said "you were too young". He smiled and said "I thought I could concur the world". On the 3rd date, he invited me to dinner. He told me he had two biological daughters, but the 3rd is adopted. He met a Mexican couple with ten at church, the 9th was 18 months old but couldn't speak a word, such as Papa, or Mama. They couldn't afford to take the baby to see doctor. So, my banker friend took the baby to see doctors and the diagnosis was "Autism". The banker officially adopted the baby to live with his family. The Autism girl became normal as they treated her as their own. His story touched my heart.

For the old bloggers on Chinese FriendFinder know that I mentioned this banker CEO many times. I don't believe that he passed away in January this year. I lost my best friend for 16 years. He was 74 years old. He and I exchanged more than 10 thousand emails, hundred of phone calls, text messages. The last email he wrote to me was January 10, 2022 when the TV discussed about Trump encouraged his followers went to Capitol Hills and had a riot (insurrection). It's hard for me to know he passed away 2 days later.

I was wondering he didn't email me for the past 8 months. I Googled his name and city he lived and found out from "Obituary" online that my banker friend passed away. I am sad.

Summary of my Rhine and Moselle rivers cruise

Last Updated:Nov 8, 2022 2:42 pm
I have waited for 3.5 years finally got on board. All others also waited about 3 years because nobody predicted the pandemic spread to Europe in 2020 that kept this trip postponed. The travel agency arranged my air ticket from LAX to Amsterdam, Netherlands airport and waited for 3 hrs then went on another smaller plane to Basel, Switzerland for an hour on air. Basel is where the company's ship moored. All 143 passengers are from the USA that originally 166 people (some died). I travel solo, the Dutch woman fell down a week before Thanksgiving, so I cooked turkey dinner and delivered to her apartment. She couldn't go to this trip. I have been arranged in a single cabin.

Most of time the ship moved at night and we can go on land for city visit (museums, churches, cathedral, winery, shopping, ....). Europe streets, roads, are cobblestone paved, so you need to prepare a soft but thick pad shoes. I had blisters on my toes, ouch! it hurts. I didn't go on shore twice because my painful knee and hurting blisters. For these 15 days, no Chinese could be seen either airport, city streets, ships, ... because the lockdown and ban Chinese to travel. It is unlike I went to Australia and New Zealand in 2015 and Italy in 2018, plenty of Chinese could be seen.

Let me tell you my most enjoyment on ship is "French cuisine". Every time you sat at the table, the waiters will bring the Red wine (Pinot noir), White wine, or Pink wine for your choice. You also can ask for coffee, Coke, Diet-Coke, orange juice for your beverage. For breakfast, you can walk to the salad bar to get what you want that includes Salmon fish, a chef can prepare your egg cooking as you wish, Omelet, Sunny side up, Easy cook, vegetable, fruit, cereal, juice, milk, ... etc.

Lunch has 4 courses. Help yourself to get Salad as 1st course. The 2nd course is crab Consommé 【法】清燉肉湯 (soup) of your choice, 3rd is main course - beef, Veal loin 小牛外腰肉, pork, chicken, duck meat, Trout, Salmon, Halibut, ... The chef cook precisely tender meat. Although the quantity is small but the quality is excellent. Yummy in my tummy. If you are vegetarian, there are choice without meat. The 4 course is desert: Strawberry ice cream is always on the list but there are famous French desert Crème Brulee, can be on the list. Some boring Americans had various cheese of their choice as dessert.

Dinner has up to 6 courses. I am in heaven with dinner. Once you got the wine, the waiter will bring you Amuse-Bouche as 1st course. The 2nd is Appetizer - sometimes has Salmon Tatar/Avocado/Onions/Capers/Caviar Cream. Delicious!! The 3rd course is Intermediate Course -Truffle Risotto/Pan Seared Sea Scallops/Parsley oil. It is out of this world. The 4th course is Sherbet - Lemon Sherbet/Sparkling wine or Grape Sherbet. The 5th course is Main Course - sometimes is Foie gras, or slice of Double cut Striploin Steak/ Sause Perigord carve vegetables/port wine Shallots/ Potato macaire. The 6th course is Dessert: Sometimes can be famous Italian dessert: Tiramisu. Baked Alaska "River Splendor" Chocolate sauce/ Fruit coulis.

There are soup chef, main course chef, dessert chef, ... for their specialties.

Rhine and Moselle rivers cruise for 15 days

My Rhine and Moselle rivers cruise will start from May 15 to May 30 that includes 6 countries (Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg, France and Belgium).

I have paid in full in Nov 2018 just when I returned from Italy. A Dutch woman who loves to travel booked this cruise trip for July 2020 Oberammergau Passion play that in every decade, such as 2010, 2020, 2030, .... This Dutch woman is very Catholic religious 84 y/o now. When she invited me to book this cruise in Nov 2018, I was still in "jet lag" from 36 days Italy trip. I didn't understand what she said on phone "Oberammergau", but I said Okay to go on the trip with her. Then Covid-19 pandemic spread to Europe, USA and to the whole world in 2020. We cancelled the trip for a year because the travel agency won't refund but only postpone the trip or give future credit voucher. By May 2021, we both received emails that travel agency postponed again to May 2022. This Dutch woman fell down a week before Thanksgiving day in 2021. She decided not to go in 2022 with me and got her travel voucher.

She called the travel agency with three-way phone conversation. I decided to go solo in 2022 and she stays in the USA for future trip.

Reminder: European countries operate on a 220 standard voltage supply, there are two associated plug types: C and F. On board our ship, there are 110 V outlets, but when traveling or staying in hotels, you will need an adapter. Please bring one with you. It has 2 round pins. Europe socket adapter is different from U.S. or Australia/New Zealand.

CCP's 清零, 封城, 飢餓 is ridiculous
Posted:Apr 9, 2022 4:50 pm
Last Updated:May 8, 2022 6:17 pm

清零 means "Zero Tolerance to Covid-19", 封城 means "Lockdown", and 飢餓 means "starving".

There are many weird and forceful phenomena in China that CCP control people to have Nucleic acid核酸 testing daily. People line-up with short distance, the testing persons using Q-tip into nose or throat for sample. Chinese people rush to market to buy foods in preparation of lockdown. It's easy to get containment when crowd people get together. Some elderly couldn't buy or not enough food to eat, they jumped out of tall buildings and died. The babies got Covid-19 positive and been forced to separate from their parents. Some infants separated from mom. The mom licked babies saliva so that she can go with babies to be lockdown. A nurse who had asthma and been refused to enter to her hospital without "Nucleic acid testing" and she passed away. A pregnant woman in labor stood outside of hospital and bleeding. The infant died. Many elderly couldn't get to hospital for emergency and died. Why CCP is so cruel to Chinese people? It is resemble of "Great Famine" and "Cultural Revolution" that cause 8.4 millions Chinese people died.

The truth is the Chinese vaccine is a failure. The vaccine is NOT working. CCP don't admit the fact. Nucleic acid testing can make a companu rich. CCP now send military into Shanghai to control protesting people. Why can CCP buy Pfizer vaccine or Moderna vaccine or AZ vaccine for Chinese to inject?

The lockdown will cause their economy to recession soon. China is a so-called "world factory", but people have been lockdown and couldn't go to work, no mxney to survive, no food to eat. Other providence Chinese donated truck-load food but CCP rather let those food rotten and spoiled but NOT let people eat. It is ridiculous wasting food and people starve to death. Why Chinese lives don't worth to live? Because they don't have "election", they don't "vote" for their leaders. So, CCP don't need people to vote. CCP conceal outside world news, selected news that benefit CCP, but mock USA democracy.

Salute to President Zelenskyy
Posted:Mar 17, 2022 3:13 pm
Last Updated:Jul 27, 2022 3:52 pm
Ukraine president Zelenskyy was comedy actor is a heroic, courageous leader. He had 4 different video speeches that all the members at British Parliament, at U.S. Congress House, at Canadian Parliament and German Parliament. All the members had standing ovation and applaud. My tears rolling down my face when I heard president Zelenskyy's video address at U.S. Congress House. I know those speeches can't be heard in China or Russia or North Korea or Iran. So, this is the transcript of Mr. Zelenskyy's address at US Congress. In order to pass Chinese FriendFinder approval of this blog, I use "x" "xx" to replace certain words. Hope you will understand.

Glory to heroes. Thank you very much. Madam Speaker, members of the Congress, ladies and gentlemen, Americans, friends, I am proud to greet you from Ukraine, from our capital city of Kyiv, a city that is under missxle and airstrxkes from Russian troops every day. But it doesn’t give up, and we have not even thought about it for a second, just like many other cities and communities in our beautiful country, which found themselves in the worst wxx since World Wxx II.

I have the honor to greet you on behalf of the Ukrainian people, brave and freedom-loving people who, for eight years, have been resisting the Russian aggression, those who give their best sons and daughters to stop this full-scale Russian invasxon. Right now, the destiny of our country is being decided, the destiny of our people, whether Ukrainians will be free, whether they will be able to preserve their democracy.

Russia has attacked not just us, not just our land, not just our cities. It went on a brutal offensive against our values, basic human values. It threw tanks and planes against our freedom, against our right to live freely in our own country, choosing our own future, against our desire for happiness, against our national dreams, just like the same dreams you have, you Americans.

Just like anyone else in the United States, I remember your national memorial in Rushmore, the faces of your prominent presidents, those who laid the foundation of the United States of America as it is today: democracy, independence, freedom, and care for everyone, for every person, for everyone who works diligently, who lives honestly, who respects the law. We in Ukraine want the same for our people, all that is normal part of your own life.

Zelensky invoked American traumas to bolster his case

Ladies and gentlemen, friends, Americans, in your great history, you have pages that would allow you to understand Ukrainians, understand us now when we need you, right now. Remember Pearl Harbor, terrible morning of Dec. 7, 1941, when your sky was black from the planes attacking you. Just remember it. Remember September the 11th, a terrible day in 2001 when evil tried to turn your cities, independent territories, in battlefields, when innocent people were attacked, attacked from air, yes. Just like no one else expected it, you could not stop it.

‘I have a dream.’ A freighted request for a no-fly zone.

You know what kind of defense systems we need, S-300 and other similar systems. You know how much depends on the battlefield, on the ability to use aircraft, powerful, strong aviation to protect our people, our freedom, our land, aircraft that can help Ukraine, help Europe. And you know that they exist and you have them, but they are on earth, not in the Ukrainian sky. They do not defend our people. I have a dream. These words are known to each of you today. I can say I have a need. I need to protect our sky. I need your decision, your help, which means exactly the same, the same you feel when you hear the words, ‘I have a dream.’

Ladies and gentlemen, friends, Ukraine is grateful to the United States for its overwhelming support, for everything that your government and your people have done for us, for weapons and ammunition, for training, for finances, for leadership in the free world, which helps us to pressure the aggressor economically.

He bluntly asked for help: ‘I call on you to do more.

I am grateful to President Biden for his personal involvement, for his sincere commitment to the defense of Ukraine and democracy all over the world. I am grateful to you for the resolution which recognizes all those who commit crimes against Ukraine, against the Ukrainian people, as wxx criminals. However, now it is true in the darkest time for our country, for the whole of Europe, I call on you to do more. New packages of sanctions are needed constantly, every week, until the Russian military machine stops. Restrictions are needed for everyone on whom this unjust regime is based.

Russia attacks Ukraine, stock market tumbled

Last Updated:Mar 30, 2022 3:32 pm

Russia attacks the Ukraine, crude oil and natural gas soars, inflation fear worsen, FOMC will raise interest and stock market tumbled. Panic sell-off. I am a BUYER. Many stocks plummeted to year-low or plunged to half even 1/3 or to capitulate level. Good stocks and bad stocks all fell down. This is the time to be greedy when everyone is fearful.

Bought good stocks: GOOGL, AMZN, TSLA, TSM, ADBE, CRM, QCOM, PANW, AVGO, and some bad stocks (for now) that fell under the water: SHOP, PYPL, ZM, GE, F-B , TEVA, ... I've c*sh account so I don't worry about "margin c*ll". I've reserve half million USD 2 own more if the situation gets worse. In long term, this current situation would be a "hiccup", a buying opportunity. Time will prove.

Human trafficking in rural China
Posted:Feb 12, 2022 10:46 am
Last Updated:Feb 23, 2022 9:44 am
A Chinese mother of 8 ch*ldren has chained around the neck in a small village hut sparked online outrage and discussion on human trafficking and women’s rights in rural China.

This story basically started from "1 Ch*ld policy"一孩政策 implemented in China between 80 and 20 . When they had 2nd , the fetus had to be aborted or p*y the penalty (fined). In the Chinese society, they prefer "b*", so when the baby is a g*rl, the parents might drown females at birth. The male and female ratio became huge, 20 yrs later, males have difficulty to find suitable females especially in the rural countryside area. The perpetrators go on streets to abduct ch*ldren and grabbed them into the cars. Those perpetrators then sold the ch*ldren to be beggars or men's wives. They have been tortured, abused and chained to the wall. If they escaped, soon they will be caught and brought back to beat them. Those became prisoners for family that bought them from perpetrators.

The woman who has 8 ch*ldren (7 b* and 1 g*rl) now been brought to a hospital and doctors proclaimed that woman needs a brain surgery. People suspected that woman will be erased all her memory from surgery. On internet people said there were more than but they probably been k*lled.

Those victims couldn't speak out their misery because nobody helped them and CCP allowed those perpetrators to abduct on streets and sold to be slaves or s*x slaves. The world should know the Human Trafficking and violation of Human Rights in China.

BTW, the man in the picture is NOT her h*sband, he is a reporter. The video became a big news on internet.

Nibble some Nasdaq stocks
Posted:Jan 23, 2022 9:28 am
Last Updated:Feb 12, 2022 4:46 pm

I have made good decision in late Feb 2020 sold a rental property in Vegas and switched the sold proceeds to my stock account and changed stock account from margin account to "c*sh" account to prevent "margin calls". So, I have had a million USD c*sh stock account with some lousy stocks and fresh new c*sh. I know "margin account" has double buying power, but with c*sh account I don't need to pay interest and know what my stock real value worth.

By March 23, 2020, stock market crashed due to Covid-19 fear spread to Europe then USA. I bought some high tech MSFT, ADBE, CRM, AMZN, GOOGL, JPM, some bio-tech REGN, MRNA, GILD (US companies), NVDA, TSM, AMD (Taiwan semiconductor) and leave alone with my loser stocks in my portfolio. By Nov 2020, I needed to buy a new car because my old car had mechanic problems. I ordered a Tesla car in Nov and waited 40 days for my Tesla to deliver. My Tesla arrived on Christmas Eve 2020. I sold some stocks with profits to p*y for Tesla car. I also bought TSLA stocks under $600, TSLA went up to $900 but I didn't sell, it dropped back to under $600, I bought more shares and started to sell from $1,000 to $1,243. I sold al* TSLA shares and gained lots of profits. I had $640K profits in 2020, I had to pay "Uncle Sam" income tax 30% bracket on April 15, 2021. Ouch!! painful that my 1/3 profits went to taxes.

I am a "swing trader" and a "market contrarian". I select the sectors I want and eliminate the sectors I dislike. As I have mentioned in my previous blogs, I owned Trillion dollar market cap companies and semiconductor companies that CEO are Taiwanese-Americans such as TSM, NVDA, AMD and XLNX. I avoid IPO stocks, Chinese stocks, Cryptocurrencies, SPAC IPO, airline companies, MEME stocks. I focus on 60 stocks I watched their news, earning reports, and current international news, pandemic spreading. I prefer U.S. high tech, software, bio-tech and Taiwanese semiconductor sector. I don't believe in Chinese government who k*lled Chinese people, spread Covid-19 to the world, concealed the bad news but exaggerated their abilities. It has more than a decade I don't care about Chinese stocks since they kicked out Google from China and let their people blind and deaf to search the world's news. If China is in 2nd place of world economy, why Xi asked "what can they do about food?" If China is rich, they can b*y from USA agriculture food and reduce the import-export tension, tariff tension in between USA and China. Easy.

There are no Chinese people vote for their leaders. Without "presidential election" CCP leaders don't care about Chinese people's lives. Deplorable Chinese people became "silent lambs". CCP control people using censorship, surveillance cameras, bribed Africa countries for votes in UN, WHO, WTO. I have mentioned many times that Mao was the #1 massacred people but his portrait picture printed on every Renminbi 人民币 currencies. Why the monster picture on Chinese bills and Tienanmen Square. Don't they know killing is wrong? Why there are more than 5.6 million world people died on Covid-19 since 2020? In USA, people lives are very important. I went to Washington DC and saw all the soldiers' names who died from Vietnam War has imprinted on a marble wall. All the near 3,000 Americans died from 9/11 in 2001 imprinted on a wall and U.S. government had to give families compensation. Why CCP concealed all the people's names and death numbers from Great Famine, Cultural Revolution, One B*by policy, Tienanmen Square massacre, organ harvesting on Falun Gong practitioners, Hong Kong protestors, and genocide on Uighurs and Muslim in Xinjiang, Mongolia, Tibet? So many corruption, bribery in CCP. U.S. president Jimmy Carter made China became rich, but not CCP.
