Li-Meng Yan manipulated by Bannon and Guo Wengui


Origin of the event:

Through an anonymous middleman, Li-Meng Yan met for four hours in early September 2020 with Daniel Lucey, an infectious disease expert at Georgetown University. A few days after the meeting, Li-Meng Yan posted a 26-page paper online accusing the COVID-19 of being artificially manufactured in a laboratory. The paper was funded by two non-profit organizations owned by Guo Wengui. It was not published in academic journals or peer-reviewed by the academic community. Of the three authors, two use pseudonyms except Li-Meng Yan. The scientists were quick to dismiss the papers as pseudoscience based on guesswork, as they were littered with specifications and conspiracy theories. Behind the control of Li-Meng Yan, what on earth is the Bannon and Guo Wengui's motive?


The bad intentions of Guo Wengui and Bannon

Guo Wengui (also known as Miles Kwok) is China's real estate tycoon, has something to do with senior party officials, until about five years ago, because in the face of corruption charges, he fled China. Since then, he cast himself as a freedom fighter, though many people are skeptical of his motives. As a young naval officer, Bannon patrolled the South China Sea. He has long focused much of his energy on China. While in the White House, he advised Trump to get tough with China, describing it as "the greatest existential threat the US has ever faced". Guo's deep pockets and Bannon's extensive network give them a platform from which to have enormous influence. The two men set up a $100 million fund to investigate corruption in China. In 2018, Guo reportedly agreed to give Bannon $1 million, who promoted Guo's fledging media company as a "media celebrity." They spread conspiracy theories about the accidental death of a Chinese tycoon in France, calling it a fake suicide orchestrated by Beijing. As Bannon and Guo Wengui themselves have said, they have wanted to overthrow the Communist Party for years.

Li-Meng Yan: The ideal face to be manipulated by Guo Wengui and Bannon

At the beginning of 2020, when Yan was still at HKU, she began to process the rumor that the Wuhan pneumonia in China was caused by man, and the authorities were deliberately concealing it. She also worked with the YouTube comment show host Lu De (formerly known as Wang Dinggang who originally did business in China, but settled in the United States a few years ago, and began to set up a YouTube channel "Lu De Society" to actively criticize the Communist Party of China. His content is full of conspiracy theories and half truths, and Guo is his primary patron. (Guo Wengui and Bannon's relationship is not shallow) Later, on the January 19 program, Lu De quoted "one of the world's leading experts on COVID-19" as saying that the Chinese government was hiding something. Bannon's attention was drawn to the rapid worsening of the epidemic in China and the closure of the city of Wuhan on January 23. Bannon watched the episode with a translation provided by someone else; A few months later, Lu De asked Yan to flee to the United States, saying Guo would provide her with first-class tickets. Finally, Yan quietly left Hong Kong on April 28 for the United States.

After Yan left Hong Kong, her family and friends were alarmed by her sudden disappearance and called the police in Hong Kong, said a close friend, Jean-Marc Cavaillon, a retired professor of immunology at the Pasteur Institute in Paris. Yan didn't report being safe until two weeks after she left Hong Kong, saying she was in New York, safe and relaxed, and had “the best bodyguards and lawyers,” according to her WeChat record. "What I'm doing now will help the world control this epidemic." After Yan secretly left Hong Kong, she was pushed around by Guo Wengui, a wealthy Chinese businessman living in exile in the United States, and Bannon, a former adviser to Trump, who promoted the Wuhan pneumonia conspiracy theory. Yan's mother, who was contacted by the New York Times by mobile phone, said she had never been arrested by Chinese police as her daughter claimed, alleging that her daughter was being used in the United States.

After Yan arrived in the United States, Guo and Bannon placed her in a "safe house" in New York City, hired a communications coach for her to teach her how to handle media questions, asked her to submit multiple papers, packaged her as a "whistler," and arranged for her to give media interviews. On July 10, 2020, Li-Meng Yan made her first appearance on the Fox News Channel. In addition to telling how she went to the United States, she also accused the University of Hong Kong of helping to conceal the epidemic, but she did not mention her relationship with Guo Wengui and Bannon. After that, Yan was interviewed by several right-wing media. In addition to accusing China of concealing the truth of the epidemic, she also gave speeches about conspiracy theories. For example, she claimed to have taken Hydroxychloroquine to prevent the epidemic. The WHO cooperated with China to cover up the truth etc. Guo then translates these interviews into Chinese and posts them on various social media platforms for wider dissemination.

The manipulative Li-Meng Yan, even the family can be abandoned:

Yan claimed in the program that her mother had been arrested by the Chinese government, which often harasses her family as a punishment. However, when the New York Times contacted Li-Meng Yan’s mother on her mobile phone, she said she had never been arrested and wanted to get in touch with her daughter. She had not talked to her daughter for several months. "They prevented their daughter from contacting us," said Yan's mother, referring to Guo Wengui and Wang Dinggang. "I want my daughter to know that she can video with us at any time."
