I'm not surprised.

Or maybe facebook did. The demand must be melting their servers.

Not that I've seen. She scrubbed her FB.

She claims to have sold it, but as that article on that first page says, that's often just a BS front to hide from the law.

The lady is a Madam.

they tape and blackmail people for having similar perv behaviors.


https://www.boston.com/news/politics/20 ... bert-kraft
The founder of the spa Robert Kraft visited watched the Super Bowl with Donald Trump---
She even snagged a selfie with the president... She also captured the president testing out
some new 2020 re-election slogans.

As the Herald reported, the Feb. 3 party was hardly the only time Yang has been spotted with Trump.

The 45-year-old entrepreneur, who founded a chain of Asian day spas in South Florida, has reportedly become a “fixture” in Republican politics. Her Facebook account, which could no longer be viewed Friday afternoon, was littered with photos and videos of Yang at Mar-a-Lago and other Trump clubs with the president and other Republican personalities, including the president’s adult sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., Florida Sen. Rick Scott, Gov. Ron DeSantis, Fox News host Jesse Waters, and Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert.
WHAT A BUNCH OF LYING REPUB PIMP MONGERS!!!

the yang gal flips sex parlors! she has tons of them!! now shes moving to DC.


https://www.miamiherald.com/news/politi ... 429.htmlex for sale
When a female massage therapist started finding used condoms in the trash at one of Yang’s Tokyo Day Spas, she became concerned that the parlor was not what it seemed.

The woman, who spoke only Mandarin, asked an English-speaking relative to call police after she heard the sounds of sex coming from several private massage rooms. Her tip led a police vice squad to begin surveilling the parlor from a van parked outside, the woman told the Miami Herald in an interview. Cops hidden in the vehicle took photographs of the people coming and going. The woman said she went undercover, snapping pictures of receipts when no one was looking. After the trash was taken outside, she would call her relative, who would then ring up the cops.

“There should be some condoms out back,” the relative would report.

https://www.miamiherald.com/news/politi ... 86429.html
March 08, 2019
In 2007, Yang started what would become a large chain of Tokyo Day Spas.

The first to open was her flagship, which is still in business and run by her husband, Zubin Gong,
in Palm Beach Gardens.

The next was a Tokyo Day Spa in Jupiter that would later become Orchids of Asia after Yang sold it to
another businesswoman, Hua Zhang, around 2013. Zhang, who was charged in February with
racketeering and running a house of prostitution and has pleaded not guilty,...

Fox News analyst freaks the hell out after Rick Wilson posts pic of him with accused Florida massage madam--

According to the Miami Herald, Yang sold off the Orchids of Asia day spa to another Chinese businesswoman named Hua Zhang in 2013. However, the Herald reports that “online reviews from prior to 2013 suggest sex was for sale” at the spa before it was sold to its current owner.”

The photos are of course incriminating, Drak. And everybody's focused on the most salacious part of the story, the day spa massage parlors she owned. But, good ol' Mojo thinks there may be a deeper angle to all this story.

.... yes, seriously, no pun intended. :D

This is actually a story of something Donald liked to talk about in 2016. "Pay to play." And oh boy, was that, as was so often the case, projection. This is also about the other kind of whores Ike likes to talk about - politicians. :D And the sale of access.

Drak, I don't think she took down her Facebook and/or website just because of the massage parlors.

A Florida Massage Parlor Owner Has Been Selling Chinese Execs Access to Trump at Mar-a-Lago
https://www.motherjones.com/politics/20 ... ar-a-lago/

The latest Trump political donor to draw controversy is Li Yang, a 45-year-old Florida entrepreneur from China who founded a chain of spas and massage parlors that included the one where New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft was recently busted for soliciting prostitution. She made the news this week when the Miami Herald reported that last month she had attended a Super Bowl viewing party at Donald Trump’s West Palm Beach golf club and had snapped a selfie with the president during the event. Though Yang no longer owns the spa Kraft allegedly visited, the newspaper noted that other massage parlors her family runs have “gained a reputation for offering sexual services.” (She told the newspaper she has never violated the law.) Beyond this sordid tale, there is another angle to the strange story of Yang: She runs an investment business that has offered to sell Chinese clients access to Trump and his family. And a website for the business—which includes numerous photos of Yang and her purported clients hobnobbing at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s private club in Palm Beach—suggests she had some success in doing so.

Yang, who goes by Cindy, and her husband, Zubin Gong, started GY US Investments LLC in 2017. The company describes itself on its website, which is mostly in Chinese, as an “international business consulting firm that provides public relations services to assist businesses in America to establish and expand their brand image in the modern Chinese marketplace.” But the firm notes that its services also address clients looking to make high-level connections in the United States. On a page displaying a photo of Mar-a-Lago, Yang’s company says its “activities for clients” have included providing them “the opportunity to interact with the president, the [American] Minister of Commerce and other political figures.” The company boasts it has “arranged taking photos with the President” and suggests it can set up a “White House and Capitol Hill Dinner.” (The same day the Herald story about Yang broke, the website stopped functioning.)

The short bio of Yang on the website, identifying her as the founder and CEO of GY US Investments, shows her in a photo with Trump bearing his signature. It says she has been “settled in the United States for more than 20 years” and is a member of the “Presidential Fundraising Committee.” According to the Herald, Yang is a registered Republican, and since 2017 she and her relatives have donated more than $42,000 to a Trump political action committee and more than $16,000 to Trump’s campaign. Her Facebook page, which was taken offline on Friday, was loaded with photos of her posing with GOP notables: Donald Trump Jr., Rep. Matt Gaetz or Florida, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, among others.

On a page displaying a photo of Mar-a-Lago, Yang’s company says its “activities for clients” have included providing them “the opportunity to interact with the president, the [American] Minister of Commerce and other political figures.”

The GY US Investments website lists upcoming events at Mar-a-Lago at which Yang’s clients presumably can mingle with Trump or members of his family. This includes something called the International Leaders Elite Forum, where Trump’s sister, Elizabeth Trump Grau, will supposedly be the featured speaker. Attendees, the site says, will include “Chinese elites from various countries, including the US states, as well as elite leaders from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Australia, Europe and other countries and regions.” Another event for which Yang’s firm says it can provide access is Trump’s annual New Year’s celebration at Mar-a-Lago. Elsewhere on the website, the firm boasts that “GY Company arranged a number of guests to attend the 2019 New Year’s Eve dinner. All the guests took photos with” members of Trump’s family. This page displays photos of Chinese executives and a Chinese movie star with Donald Trump Jr., suggesting that these pics were arranged by the company, and also includes a photo of Yang with Elizabeth Trump Grau.

Among the Chinese executives who attended that New Year’s event was Huachu Tang, the owner of an electric car company. Tang told Yahoo Finance that he flew 17 hours from Xi’an, China, with his family and an assistant in hopes of meeting with Trump at the party. Though he reportedly speaks almost no English, Tang said he hoped to use a Trump connection to build up his company’s brand before eventually taking it public on the New York Stock Exchange. Trump, however, canceled his trip to Mar-a-Lago due to the government shutdown. Tang and his wife managed to pose for pictures with Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Trump Grau. Tang told Yahoo that he received admission to the New Year’s party through a package offered by a public relations agency—perhaps Yang’s firm. According to Yahoo, the company Tang used declined to reveal the price of the package, citing the confidentiality of the contract.

[snip]

The overall message conveyed by the GY US Investments website seems clear: hire Yang’s company and she can get you close to Trump and his government—at Mar-a-Lago and in Washington. If the posted photos are authentic, she has been able to get Chinese clients at least into the Trump circle for a quick pic. They are a sign that this Chinese immigrant and Trump donor has used her contacts to go from massaging clients to massaging influence.

[snip][end]

So ... here's the deal. More shadow play and kabuki theatre. Donald constantly talks about how "Gina" is screwing us over in trade and how they are bad guys (most of the time). (And he's not totally wrong about that, but he as always frames the wrong problems and offers the worst solutions. But I digress.) Meanwhile, he's working with people like Li who are basically running a "pay to play" scheme to get Chinese executives to get "face time" with the President and his family at Mar-a-Lago.

I don't see anything in those photos which are incriminating. Photo's like that are common place. A person has to have been motivated to get photos like that, gone to meetings, then events, given money to the party.

After doing that for a while a person will get invited to more select events where face time and photos like those are like "Hi, nice to meet you, stand there",,,"smile," (flash), "move along now I have to pose for many photos with many people tonight."



It's embarrassing for Trump and others, her turning out to be a madam. It would have been more embarrassing for him had she not wrangled to get herself into so many photos with so many of the influential Republicans spanning such a long period of time. I saw one with Palin.

The more photos which are found of her with others will lessen the focus which was on Trump when the photo him and her was the only photo in circulation.


This amounts to a tempest in a tea pot.

That a major Republican donor poses with lots of influential Republicans is not surprising or incriminating. Of course.

Nobody's proven in a court she operates any prostitution at her parlors yet; there are allegations and accusations. The one busted where Kraft went was sold to other owners.

Dunno, I also thought the story was very much a molehill, until I saw the "pay to play" stuff and realized that may be the real reason stuff is starting to get hidden ... IMHO.

Oh yah.

A twitter follow posted a wiki type link to the Yang business but I wasn't sure of the source so I won't bother posting it. I also heard that a bunch of Chinese spas were just bust in Seattle? Not sure if there's a link. The spas are just another underground opertion to move money around and gather blackmail etc. and provide happy endings.

Yah, only that she's a founder of human trafficking spas and has influence with American corporations. Nothing incriminating though.

I noticed that stuff was David Corn stuff. And I know from having seen his stuff before that he's inclined to call fundraising events where charging incredibly high amounts of pay for a modestly heaped plate of food to play with while someone talks at them is "pay to play."

I tend to feel his suspicion about it as well, but my experience is others call that activity "fund raising," and the media often praise them more for their events when their loot piles up the biggest. They rank them highest by how much they can haul.

He spins a nice involved who done it theory when he writes. I read them. But in the end, after all, I remind myself it's David's Corn, so I don't take too much of it, just what I need.

Because it's his corn.

Corn or no corn, stuff is starting to be taken down, and that leads me to believe some folks have something they want hidden.

It's pay to play. They all do it. Obama did it. If you dropped $33,000 (the legal max for any one time), you got face time with the President of the United States. What do you think Obama was doing on those regular swings through L.A.? He wasn't cutting ribbons in front of new animation studios, or catching some time down on the court with Lakers players. Well, OK, he did like to be seen with the usual suspects in the day time, but at night he got right down to business in whatever mansion hosted it this time.

Local solar power entrepreneur type, bit of an ego case but a nice guy really, actually raised the $33 grand from donations made by people in that business and met POTUS in some nice billionaire spread or other up the hill. Yes, there are pictures. He asked POTUS flat out when he was going to push legislation favoring solar power. POTUS, never one to be taken aback, gave a stock line or three and everything was fine until the solar entrepreneur type wrote a "look what I did" letter to the papers, and drew heavy flak from all sides. In your darkest thoughts, you know he's right, though.

It's Citizens United that's the problem.

David Corn is not the problem. The political system is the problem. David Corn has had issues from time to time, but he is completely credible on this subject, and if you think my story above is the only one I have, nope.

Li Yang was apparently selling access to 45.

https://www.politicususa.com/2019/03/09 ... -ring.html.

A new report published Saturday shows that the founder of a Florida massage parlor tied to a sex trafficking ring has been selling Chinese executives access to Donald Trump.

According to Mother Jones, Li Yang “Runs an investment business that has offered to sell Chinese clients access to Trump and his family.”

And a website for the business—which includes numerous photos of Yang and her purported clients hobnobbing at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s private club in Palm Beach—suggests she had some success in doing so,” the report added.

From selling Tug and Rubs to selling access to 45...now there's something I should somehow be shocked at, but I'm not.

a) however much of a problem this is domestically, I understand Americans are quite a bit more sensitive about foreign donors doing this. Ya know, that "emoluments" stuff. It seems Li Yang was trying to get Chinese foreign nationals face time with POTUS, and that's not quite the same thing as citizens. As I recall, folks went apoplectic when a bunch of Chinese Buddhist monks dared to give Al Gore a stick of incense, or something like that.

Look, I know this happened before. I heard all about the Lincoln Bedroom stuff during the Clinton era. Thing is, now we have Trump outsourcing this, he's using Mar-a-Lago memberships and visits as his Lincoln Bedroom.

b) Seems China has been rather generous to Trump recently about granting various IP, i.e. emoluments. I think there's more more here.

The Massage Parlor Owner Peddling Access to Trump Has Ties to Chinese Government-Linked Groups
https://www.motherjones.com/politics/20 ... indy-yang/

Li Yang, the Florida massage parlor entrepreneur who created and operated a business that sold Chinese business executives access to President Donald Trump and his family at Mar-a-Lago, has yet another intriguing line of work. She is an officer of two groups with ties to China’s Communist government. And she founded a Miami-based nonprofit that promotes “economic and cultural exchange” between China and the West in coordination with “senior…Chinese leaders” in the United States, according to a profile of Yang posted on a Chinese social media platform.

After Mother Jones on Saturday revealed that Yang, who goes by Cindy, had been peddling entrée to the Trump family, the Trump White House, and assorted GOP powerbrokers, national security experts noted that this situation could pose a threat, presenting opportunities for espionage or blackmail targeting the president and his inner circle. They expressed concern the Yang’s efforts to broker interactions with Trump and his clan could be exploited by Chinese intelligence. “Guess who else has 100% known about this from the beginning?” tweeted Susan Hennessey, a Brookings Institution fellow who previously worked as a National Security Agency lawyer. “Chinese intelligence services.” Samantha Vinograd, a CNN national security analyst who worked for the National Security Council during the Obama administration, noted: “Our intel community has said China poses one of the most significant counterintelligence challenges—my money is on the Chinese Govt having at least picked up on [Yang’s] access if they didn’t direct it.”

No direct evidence of any such activity has yet emerged. When Mother Jones tried to reach Yang at different phone numbers, each time a man answered the phone, said he did not speak English, and hung up. And Yang did not respond to emails. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders did not respond to questions about security issues raised by Yang’s access. But these apparent links between Yang and Chinese government-related entities will likely fuel concerns that Yang’s actions could have a foreign influence or intelligence angle.

Prior to the 2016 presidential campaign, Yang, who emigrated to the United States from China about 20 years ago and who once worked as a journalist for a Chinese-language television network covering Silicon Valley, had no political profile. She and her family owned and operated a chain of Florida massage parlors, including the one where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was busted last month for soliciting prostitution. (Yang sold that particular spa around 2013, but her family continues to own massage parlors, including several that have a developed “a reputation for offering sexual services,” according to the Miami Herald. Yang has denied violating the law.) During the 2016 election, Yang dove aggressively into presidential politics, first helping to organize events for former Florida governor Jeb Bush before throwing her support behind Trump.

According to the profile of Yang that appears on the Chinese-language site Freewechat—which compiles posts from the Chinese social media platform WeChat—she was invited in 2016 “to serve as a member of the National Committee of the Asian American Republican Party.” The story notes that Yang was also tapped for senior roles in two other groups focused on China-related issues: the Florida branch of the Council for the Promotion of the Peaceful Reunification of China (CPPRC) and the Miami chapter of the American arm of the Chinese Association of Science and Technology. Both organizations have direct links to China’s Communist Party, and the CPPRC has been described as a vehicle for projecting Chinese influence in the West.

[snip]

Yang has justifiably drawn scrutiny as a Trump donor who tried to cash in on her connections within the Trump-GOP cosmos, raising questions about whether she was working with people in Trump’s orbit. Her involvement with groups connected to the Chinese government and the Communist Party prompt additional questions about her activities.
