Steve Bannon And Fugitive Chinese Billionaire Fly Signs Over NYC Congratulating “Federal State Of New China”

The New York Post reports:

A mysterious fleet of propeller planes was spotted flying banners over New York on Wednesday congratulating a “Federal State of New China.”

Puzzled and exasperated New Yorkers spotted the banners from Manhattan, flying over the Hudson, and down over Red Hook in Brooklyn. “I officially have no idea what the f–k is happening anymore,” one person tweeted with an image of the planes over New York Harbor.

The banners appear to be a bizarre stunt against the Chinese Communist Party launched by Steve Bannon and a fugitive Chinese billionaire, who together on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre declared the Chinese government illegitimate.

Fox Business reports:

“From today the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will no longer be the lawful government of China,” the billionaire, Guo Wengui, shouted into a livestream from a boat in New York Harbor, with Bannon by his side and the Statue of Liberty in the background.

Trump’s former chief strategist joins Guo in a chant of “Take down the CCP!” before Guo kisses Bannon on the cheek. Bannon goes on to accuse China of causing “great bloodshed in Hong Kong” and, without evidence, “unleash[ing]” the coronavirus on the world before reading a declaration of the Federal State of New China.

The amateurish production raised more questions than answers. Guo, who also goes by Miles, fled China in 2014 just before he was accused of ripping off business partners and scheming with corrupt government officials, The New York Times previously reported.
