It took a couple of National Right-Wing Blogs, motivated by attacking Kevin McCarthy, to finally pick up on the stuff your intrepid blogger wrote about 4 years ago.

The first is the Gateway Pundit, which has a spotty reputation but has gotten some gigantic scoops over the years.

A top California Republican and lieutenant of Kevin McCarthy is closely tied to the Chinese entities identified by the Trump Administration as being linked to the theft and transfer of American intellectual property by and to China. 

Chung Cheng Kuo, who is actually from Taiwan, and who purports to work in the insurance industry, has founded several companies, many with ties to China and the Chinese-connected innovation space and business incubator, the ZGC Innovation Center.

Nothing moves in California Republican Party politics without McCarthy’s say-so. The same goes for the selection of its top party brass. Chung Cheng Kuo, the California GOP’s Vice Chair, and Jessica Patterson, the Chairwoman of the California GOP, are no exception.

In the case of the Gateway Pundit, they attach a 77 page opposition research report on Kuo. Much of the info was already reported by your intrepid blogger, but there are a lot of additional details that reinforce our belief that Kuo’s business interests were questionable and his ties to Red China were far too deep to allow him anywhere close to GOP Leadership.

His business ties run directly to Zhongguancun (ZGC – also called Zhong Guan Cun), a technology district located in Beijing, China.

The ZGC Innovation Center is run by ZGC Capital, which is controlled by Beijing’s municipal government through the Zhongguancun Development Group (ZDG).

In 2018, Donald Trump’s US Trade Representative and Elsa Kania identified ZGC and the ZGC Innovation Center, with which Kuo is closely tied, as being linked to the Chinese theft of American intellectual property (I.P.) and transfer of American I.P. to China.

The Municipal Government in Beijing is synonymous with the Chinese Communist Party, or CCP…

The address of the ZGC center repeatedly shows up in all kinds of stuff Kuo does, including political fundraisers.

I take issue with both the Gateway Pundit and the National File because they say that Kuo is an adjunct of McCarthy. No, he is not. People like Scott Winn and Jason Scalese, who are Kuo’s campaign guys, have been lieutenants of McCarthy over the years, but they also engage in other activities. It is fair to say that Jessica Patterson is an extension of McCarthy because almost her entire pedigree as an operative traces back to the Bill Thomas / Kevin McCarthy machine.

Further, Jessica Patterson never left the CAGOP Chairmanship because the powers that be did not want Peter Kuo to become chair. Re-read this as many times as you need to understand its meaning. The National File and the Gateway Pundit prove their lack of connection to California by missing this key point.

Conservative Mugs 970×250

Then the National File went one step further.

They quoted Tim Donnelly, Johnny Nalbandian and Mike Cargile in their article. All three have huge personal axes to grind with McCarthy and may not have been the best choices to quote.

Nalbandian blamed McCarthy for “destroying California”:

“Kevin McCarthy Played a major role in Destroying California and in letting Democrats get away with what they’re getting away with.. You’re either pregnant or you’re not. You either go one way or the other. Looking at the way he’s handled the last six years with all his backroom deals with Democrats, I just can’t support that. He buries good candidates – many of them.

Putting J Patterson at the head of CA GOP is a part of ruining California. She thinks all America First candidates are nuts. She’d rather see Democrats win than America First candidates.”

Mike Cargile, a Conservative in San Bernardino County, confirms McCarthy’s ties to Patterson and Kuo’s California GOP:

“Kevin IS the CAGOP. Patterson is nothing more than a McCarthy sycophant. We MUST break the stranglehold of CA politics on the rest of the country. McCarthy is Pelosi-light. Same ideology, same methodology. This is our one chance to start a course correction for the Nation. We need leaders of a different ilk and vein. Leaders with a vision for the Party and Country based on our shared conservative values and the wherewithal and political acumen to achieve that vision.”

Andy Gimmecandy recruited an opponent for Johnny in 2022 who beat him. Cargile, who I like and have supported, had his CAGOP endorsement withdrawn because he likes to run his mouth a lot.

Anyone that quotes Tim Donnelly on anything California does not know what they are doing. (Donnelly called McCarthy Satan and talked about his ethics. Donnelly should look in a mirror himself)

However, the parts of the article about Kuo are devastating and the fact that these two outlets used Kuo to attack McCarthy further validates the warning your intrepid blogger issued 4 years ago. Specifically, I warned CAGOP Leadership and others that Kuo’s business issues would be used to attack them.  I can only imagine what the CAGOP control agents who helped Kuo pull off the election in 2019 are thinking about now. (Maybe they should get Kuo to resign early of the 2023 convention?)

Kuo Claims He Helps Connect U.S. Startups To Chinese Investors Through Silicon Valley Global, A Company He Founded.

Kuo’s company, DCLC International, markets itself as a conduit to Chinese capital and even shares an address with the China-tied ZGC Innovation Center.

Chung Cheng Kuo, who calls himself “Anthony,” claims to work in insurance. But the public record tells a vastly different story about the shadowy China-tied operative.

Kuo’s Ties To Chinese Government Backed Initiatives 

Chung Cheng Kuo has multiple ties to ZGC and several of his business ventures are based at the ZGC Innovation Center.

The ZGC Innovation Center is an innovation space located in Silicon Valley helping entrepreneurs develop start-ups and fostering business ties between America and China. ZGC stands for Zhongguancun, or Zhong Guan Cun, a technology district located in Beijing, China.

ZGC is run by ZGC Capital, which is controlled by Beijing’s municipal government through the Zhongguancun Development Group (ZDG).

ZDG founded several technology development centers in China and was formed to develop the Zhongguancun district.

The ZGC Innovation Center Is Located At 4500 Great America Parkway In Silicon Valley, California.

ZGC, with the help of a “Hong Kong Tycoon”, dropped $24 million on the 70,000-square-foot space in Santa Clara for their Silicon Valley headquarters in 2015. Its U.S. investments include Kiloangel, a fund managed by AngelList founder Naval Ravikant.

These quotes sound an awful lot like what wrote about 4 years ago. Better late than never, I suppose.

  1. You call it the Thomas/McCarthy Bunch…I call it the Bakersfield Bunch. They started this take over back in the 1990’s when Roman Buhler (Brother of Luis Buhler) was one of their hench men afterhours (workdays he was the council for the House Oversight Committee which Thomas use to chair). This crap runs deep!!! They even have roots back to the takeover of the State Assembly by Brian Setencich in coordination with Willy Brown, to deny Doris Allen the Speaker of the Assembly Position…Like it said It runs deep!

  2. Aaron

    This reads like another fabricated steele dossier.
    If you don’t like Peter and his playful violin just say so.
    What is your point in all of this?

  3. Rudy…All most everyone likes Peter. The question is not liking him, it’s the powers controlling the CRP. Peter was not the ‘Bakersfield Bunch’s’ choice for Vice Chair. He was the alternative to their choice that the conservatives decided to support (BTW that candidate is again running for Vice Chair). The bigger question is who is Peter allying himself with to afford lifestyle he lives? I doubt it’s not just insurance sales.

  4. And you’re right about Scott Winn….. He’s been busy “doing other things” like blocking Tom Patti’s endorsement for congress in San Joaquin county.

    Blogger’s Note: What is sad is that Tom Patti had some really bad connections and was a very unmanageable candidate

  5. I have done extensive research into Kuo, there are a lot of issues with him.

  6. Charlie – Kuo became the choice of the establishment for a while.

  7. Aaron…True, he fit their ‘Race/Gender’ based politics of the worthless consultants the CRP hires. But at the Convention, I was knocked out on the first round, my supporters switched to Peter and he was able to defeat the ‘Establishment’ choice which was Corrin Rankin (who you supported and is again running for Vice as the choice of the Establishment)…. And hopefully she will not succeed in this second attempt.
