“I taught the spies, but I’m not a spy’ doesn’t fill me with confidence

Allegations that one of their MPs might be a Chinese spy demands scrutiny on top of National’s relationship with Chinese business people.

Ummmmm, what?

National MP taught English to Chinese spies

A National MP taught English to Chinese intelligence agency cadets so they could monitor private communications.

National list MP Jian Yang denounced an investigation into his past published by Newsroom today as defamatory and a smear campaign.

Yang grew up in China before moving to Australia and then New Zealand. He spent time as a student and then lecturing at the People’s Liberation Army-Air Force Engineering College and the Luoyang language institute.

At a press conference this afternoon, Yang said those institutions taught English, and not intelligence training. He was a civilian officer in the military without ranking.

So Yang’s defence is, “I taught the spies, but I’m not a spy’???

Does that fill anyone else with confidence?

National has a real problem when it comes to Chinese influence in their Party.

Can we trust the National Party when it comes to handling our economic interests with China because when you examine the National Party, it is wedded and compromised personally to wealthy Chinese interests.  Jenny Shipley, Don Brash, Ruth Richardson and Chris Tremain are Director’s of the China Construction Bank, Judith Collins interaction with Chinese Officials to help her husbands Chinese Company, Oravida, to gain more Chinese money  and Maurice Williamson’s love affair with  Donghua Liu saw him become Liu’s personal handyman when doing up Liu’s batch and heavying the Police to drop domestic violence charges.

Allegations that one of their MPs might be a Chinese spy demands scrutiny on top of National’s relationship with Chinese business people.

    Government: facilitator of the looting and polluting of the commons for the short-term benefit of opportunists. That is particularly true of National governments.

  2. James Brown says:

    I realise how ‘NZ First’ this sounds (I have never voted for NZ First) but it is clear that The Nats are prostituting NZ to the Chinese for personal gain and this will come to haunt us in the future.
    Feel so strongly about this that I would consider voting NZ First if it weren’t for the possibility of Winston going with The Nats after the election.

    Chinese version of Sargent Schultz? – “I know nothing”

    Now there’s some doubt about Yang’s NZ citizenship application, regarding the name of the university he worked/taught at.

    Seems Metiria’s misdemeanour is beginning to pale into insignificance in comparison with this one!

    • simonm says:

      Yes. And the trouble with Yang’s denials is they can only be verified (as he well knows) by the People’s Liberation Army releasing his employment records.
      That’s about as likely to happen as the Chinese Communist Party relinquishing power, and China becoming a parliamentary democracy (a system Yang is now making full use of to deny he is an agent for a foreign power).

  5. Nicke says:

    Might have been good to air this BEFORE he got into Parliament.

  6. Sam Sam says:

    It use to be one of the only ways to flee China was to be a spy. Now how SIS managed to let this slip past there vast array of James Bondness is slightly disturbing. And should go down like a cup of sick in Beijing. Dads army strikes again.

    • CLEANGREEN says:

      Ha ha ha Sam brilliantly said.

    • The Weatherman says:

      They are too busy making sure advocates for the poor and wretched don’t get in the way of international business deals.

      That’s what the SIS do. They’ll leave NZrs to die and laugh about it while “overlook” any vicious and nasty behaviour by partners like China and Indonesia if there’s money in it. Grocer was particularly bad, and look what happened to him – he was rewarded.

  7. countryboy says:

    Oh.My.God. Soooooo surprised!

  8. mosa says:

    Scrutiny and the National party is an oxymoron.

  9. J S Bark J S Bark says:

    Hmmm…

    A solo Han?

    Smoke and fire.

    Smoke and fire…

    (No, his assurances do NOT fill me with confidence!)

  10. Samwise says:

    Hmmm, so we’re selling the country to Russian, Chinese, and American billionaires, an now a Chinese spy is ensconced in our government. If Key were PM he’D be smiling an assuring us “Nothingto see here folks, just our sovereignty slipping away…”

    Meanwhile NZers are so thick as not to see what’s happening?? No wonder that fool Trump has such appeal.

  11. Christine says:

    Nah – Just because the guy trained spies it doesn’t mean he was one – I mean – violin teachers don’t necessarily play the violin – maths teachers don’t need to do maths – horse trainers never ride a horse – woodwork masters don’t use tools – cooks keep out of kitchens – politicians tell the truth. Just saying.

    • CLEANGREEN says:

      I see Christine,

      Hidden meanings in there that mean its all bollocks that he isnot a spy!

      Of course he is asn howelse could he have ever been alowed to leave China as they need permission from the chinese government before they leave!!!!

      So how did our security authorities not spot this also is the glaring question???

    • Melanie Scott says:

      Do you really think the dictatorial government of the People’s Liberation (or Liquidation) Army would have someone who was not one of them teaching in their own spy school? How naive, (or dumb) is that? Of course he is a member of the PLA, or certainly was. He would have to have the highest security clearance to teach people who were going to become spies; he can identify them apart from anything else. I doubt that people in the employ of a sensitive and secret Chinese governmennt organisation are ever let completely off the hook. All those nice ‘statesmen’ walking around in smart Western style suits? They are all members of the PLA as it is the PLA that runs China. Ask anyone who has lived and worked in China for a number of years, if you don’t believe me.

  12. simonm says:

    So does National “deliver for New Zealanders” or Beijing?
    McClay’s vocal advocacy for the rights of offshore Chinese speculators to “invest” in NZ’s residential property market says it all really.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/96802350/labour-accuses-national-of-scaremongering-amid-claims-china-fta-will-need-to-be-renegotiated

    Current NZ Housing Scenario:

    1) Offshore speculator buys an existing property in NZ, probably Auckland. 2) Offshore speculator puts NZ tenants into newly purchased house.
    3) NZ tenants can’t afford Auckland’s crazy market rents.
    4) NZ government subsidises NZ tenants with Accommodation Supplement, funded by NZ taxpayers.
    5) NZ taxpayers subsidise offshore foreign speculators to buy NZ residential property.

  13. michelle says:

    I listened to todd Mcclays RNZ interview with guyon this am and he asked him what are the benefits for NZ to allow foreign buyers to buy our homes. mick clay starting blubbering about trade he was almost in inaudible. So based on what he said and didn’t say, we have to let foreigners buy our homes so their countries will do trade deals with us. But on the other hand they don’t have to do the same. Now unless we are bloody naïve and stupid there is something seriously wrong here and mick clay couldn’t answer it and really guy yon should have asks him why is it okay for us but not okay for them.

  14. Once was Tim says:

    “Doesn’t fill me with Confidence”
    Nor me! Considering the ripped off former Chinese student (and exploited worker) now staying with my family is being bombarded with ‘Vote National’ type messages – both by NZ based Chinese media, and social media commenters telling her that we won’t be able to buy houses.

  15. michelle says:

    I only taught the spies(English) now how bad does that sound. What happened to tarred by association that is what they do to our crims many of them are brown and some of them have patches. Can anyone see the unfairness in this and why people are concerned. Why didn’t they clear this matter up before the election. Oh thats right they hide things nothing to see here move on you peasants.

    • CLEANGREEN says:

      How bloody neieve do the chinese think we bloodywell are?
      They send all their ‘operatives’ as ‘students’ over here to go and buy houses withthe money theirown Government supplyto them for their own Government property holding company/bank trust!!!!

      Then buy our best farms later!!!

      And now set up MP’s as spies inside our own government!!! – for christ sake!!!!!

      Get rid of this corrupt National Government sellout crowd.

    • CLEANGREEN says:

      English is as crooked as a dogs hind legs!!!

      And is surpasing John Key as the ‘consumate’ liar of all time.

      That was a mission of all proportions.

  16. Sally's Husband says:

    Unbelievable.

    It wasn’t so long ago that the Right wing were crucifying the Greens because one of their former MPs happened to have been pro-marxist! (Keith Locke?) Now those same Rightwingers are fine with a Chinese spy!!

  17. HC says:

    This is indeed extremely serious stuff, I am shocked how little the MSM report on it. Heads in the sand much? Sweeping inconvenient stuff under the carpet?

    We have a potential spy sit at the cabinet table, in Select Committees and have the ear and trust of a blinkered Prime Minister, too busy selling us his ‘social investment approach’ and a ‘blossoming economy’ built on net immigration gain and imported slave labour.

  18. I Kiddle says:

    If he is a spy what has he he reported back to China? That we have 4 frigates and no operational fighter jets. I think NZ needs to get a grip on what is happening in the 21st century. That is that the empire of the USA is in its death throes, attacking all and sundry, sanctioning this country and that, desperate to retain some form of control over the world but with the death of the petro-dollar it will lose its unlimited credit card and its 20 trillion dollar debt will be unable to be paid. At this point the ascendant Chinese economy will become everyones BFF. There is much about the Chinese political system that is not acceptable to NZ’ers but one has to give them credit for bringing millions out of poverty and going on to colonise the world through trade rather than military force. I believe there is an element of xenophobia in the criticism of Jian Yang. People such as him may be essential go-betweens to ensure NZ thrives in the 21st century. Sure, care is needed to ensure new immigrants are going to act in NZ’s best interests but this applies to American or German millionaires escaping the shitholes they had a hand in creating and buying up NZ’s prime farmland or scenic gems as well as the newly rich Chinese. As an opposition MP Jian Yang will not be able to facilitate the devilish aims of the yellow peril to any great extent anyway.

    • I believe there is an element of xenophobia in the criticism of Jian Yang.

      Really, Ian?

      If a Korean-born Labour MP was ‘outed’ as an ex-North Korean operative from one of their intelligence outfits – what do you think would be the response from the National party; sundry right-wingers; and the MSM?

      Care to have a guess?

      I think we all know what would happen…

      As Sally’s Husband pointed out above, Keith Locke got a pretty hard time for his marxist associations in his younger days.

    Tories find power and it’s exercise more agreeable than they find morality and it’s vexations. If there’s a cloak involved all the better.

      This from Bradbury was interesting (usual condiment recommendations apply):

      I met Jian Yang once in his role as the head of politics at Auckland University when I was applying for post graduate study and I was always surprised in my 20 minute interview with him that he knew more about who I was and my political activism than anyone else on campus. He asked me lots of questions that had bugger all to do with the study I wanted and far more focused on who I knew and what they were doing.

      The allegation that he might be a Chinese spy doesn’t surprise me at all.

    Martyn – now I know why Jian Yang knew so much about you now check this out – I woke up to realise now that this NZ MP Jian Yang may be family of Yang Enterprises in USA who are snarled up in a voting fraud hacking case and is he trying this here now?

    See these clips and the testomony abour ‘Yang Enterprises.
