Clinton White House and Warships Sold to China

Clinton White House and Warships Sold to China

2007/April 


There is one photograph that all Hillary Clinton supporters should see.
The photo was taken in 1995 showing Bill and Hillary standing next to the DNC symbol with Ng Lapseng.
Ng Lapseng often visited the Clinton White House. Ng, or "Mr. Wu" to his friends, is the owner of the Macao-based Fortuna Hotel, a resort and casino.
However, the Fortuna hotel is more than just a resort and casino.
According to the Fortuna advertisements, children under 12 can stay free at the hotel. In addition, according to the Fortuna brochure, for a fee, beautiful young hostesses from various countries can also entertain businessmen. To put it more bluntly, Ng sells women for sex.
Of course, with the recent endorsement of the National Organization of Women (NOW), Hillary has yet to explain how hanging out with a businessman who makes profits off of prostitution is empowering her female voters.
Still, the Clinton relationship with Ng goes far deeper than selling sexual favors on the streets of Macao. First, there was the money that flowed from Ng's pockets and that somehow fell into the hands of the Clintons.


Ng Lapseng came into the country on June 20, 1994, and he brought with him a suitcase with $175,000 in cash. Two days later, he met at the White House with Mark Middleton, one of Clinton's top aides.
Two days after the last meeting, Ng went to a DNC dinner with Bill and Hillary. Ng was seated at the No. 1 table. Somehow, Ng managed to give the Clintons the $175,000 in cash.
On July 31, 1994, Ng returned to the United States, this time with $42,000 in his pocket. Two days later he again travels to the White House with Mark Middleton and went to the DNC birthday party for President Clinton. The $42,000 went to President Clinton.
On Oct. 19, 1994, Ng again arrived on U.S. shores with $25,000 in a suitcase. The next day he met with Mark Middleton again at the White House.
On Feb. 15, 1995, Ng brought $12,000 in cash into the country. The next day, he met with Mark Middleton at the White House, and he met with the president upstairs at the president's residence.

On Feb. 18, 1996, Ng had $19,000 when he entered the U.S. The next day, he went to the president's Asian dinner at the Hay Adams Hotel.
Of course, Ng was not alone during these trips to the White House. In fact, Ng's good friend and a close friend of the President Clinton, Charlie Trie, received $1.4 million in wire transfers from Ng. In fact, Ng's wire transfers to Charlie turned into Trie's main source of income.
Ng Lapseng visited the White House 12 times during the time he was wiring hundreds of thousands of dollars to Trie as well as bringing all pocket cash in. The funds enabled Trie, his wife, and two of Trie's sham corporations, Daihatsu International Trading and San Kin Yip International Trading, to contribute $215,000 to the DNC.
Clinton appointed Trie to the Commission on U.S. Pacific Trade and Investment Policy in April of 1996.
Still, the money flowing from Ng to the Clintons is a side issue.
The real trouble begins when you examine Ng Lapseng and his business ventures other than prostitution.

Ng's hotel, the Fortuna, is also a place where other business ventures are housed. According to the 123 national security violations filed against Hughes Satellite Corporation, Hughes was involved in some questionable events with a Fortuna-based company.
The Sino-Canada Telecommunications and Investment Management Company were incorporated in Macao, "having its principal place of business at the Hotel Fortuna."
According to the State Department charges, the Sino-Canada Telecommunications Company also had contracted with Hughes for a large part of the APMT satellite contract then destined for China in 1995. In fact, Sino-Canada paid Hughes $5 million up front that was not reported to the State Department.
"Sino-Canada's managing director, Suen Yan Kwong, was the founder of Chung Kiu Telecommunication, which had invested in cellular telecommunications for use under special network by China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) in military districts along the coastal provinces," noted the December 2002 State Department charge letter.
It is amazing that a company based inside a Macao hotel owned by Ng Lapseng would contract with a U.S.-based satellite company when its owner was then also in business supplying communications to the Chinese army. Even more amazing is the Clinton's silence on Ng Lapseng and the money that somehow slipped out of his pockets into DNC coffers at the same time.
Alas, there is still more on Ng Lapseng. It seems that he also played a key role in the Chinese navy purchase of an ex-Russian aircraft carrier, the Varyag.
In 1998 the engineless, weaponless Ukrainian aircraft carrier Varyag was sold at auction for $20 million. The winning bidder was a Macau-registered firm called Chong Lot. The purchasers pledged it would be used for peaceful purposes. The carrier was to be sent to Macao and would be used for a floating casino.
In March 2002, following a three-year delay by Turkish authorities who denied the carrier passage through the Bosporus Strait, the Varyag finally arrived in Dalian Shiyard in northern China for refurbishment. Varyag has been in Dalian Shipyard since 2002 and it soon became clear that the ship would not become a casino.

Instead the ship was handed to the PLA navy for restoration. The ship is now being converted into a fully operational aircraft carrier. This was confirmed when the ship emerged from a Dalian Shipyard dry dock painted in PLA navy gray in 2005.
After the ship was sold, it was discovered that Chong Lot was a front company. The Macau head office address listed with the commercial registration bureau turned out not to exist. Chin Luck, its parent company based in Hong Kong, is reportedly a front for the Chinese military.
The Portuguese-language newspaper Ponto Final revealed later that Chong Lot executives were represented in talks with Macau's government by Ng Lapseng, the owner of Fortuna Hotel.
To this day, Mr. and Mrs. Clinton refuse to discuss Ng Lapseng, and his business ventures selling women and warships. They refuse to discuss the photographic evidence of Ng's close working relationship with them during the White House years. They refuse to discuss the money that flowed out of his pockets and into the coffers of the DNC.
The story of Ng Lapseng and the Clintons should serve as a warning of things to come for future voters. The story should be headline news and the source of tough questions from a so-called mainstream media.
Instead, Ng's story will sail away from Dalian shipyard and into the Pacific to face the U.S. Navy.
