Recently there were a post on Sina blog (PDF linked) that claimed "there was no FBI raid" at USFIA and "SEC was just doing routine inspection". I took a look. It's hilarious. This clearly written by someone with "motivated reasoning".
最近有在新浪博客的一篇文章 (PDF) 聲稱美國富豪USFIA “沒有被FBI調查”和“美國證券交易委員會只是做例行檢查”。我親自看一看。它真的好笑。這顯然是“有動機推理”的人寫的。
Due to size constraints, I'll just explain the important parts. I don't quote out of context.
What he wrote will be in blue.
First, the title:
UN 70th anniversary celebration invited AFG VP et al 8 people to attend
Anyone can take a photo in front of the UN building. There are even shops inside the UN building. These photos of Leonard S. Johnson and two unidentified individuals can only prove they were in New York recently. It has no other value.
任何人都可以在聯合國大廈前拍照。聯合國大樓內甚至有商店。照片只可以證明Leonard S. Johnson 和兩個身份不明的人最近去過紐約。沒有其他價值．
Translated; FBI Warriors, so fierce, so cool! This photo was published by media, claiming AFG was closed. However, those that went to AFG can see that this is not at AFG. Media use Hollywood fast cut to create false impressions, such as freedom of press in America.
This photo is of FBI agents assisting in the Boston Marathon bombing in May 2013, when they searched Norfolk St. in Cambridge area of Great Boston. The actual title of the photo is fbi-norfolk-street-cambridge.jpg I have seen no American media use this photo with the Gemcoin story. If there is, please point me at the article. Otherwise, I must conclude that the blogger was the one who falsely inserted a photo, exactly what he's accusing "American media" of doing.
這張照片是聯邦調查局探員協助2013年5月波士頓馬拉松爆炸案，他們在搜查諾福克(Norfolk) 街在大波士頓的劍橋(Cambridge)地區。照片的實際名稱是FBI-norfolk-street-cambridge.jpg 我沒有看到任何美國媒體使用這張照片在珍寶幣故事上。如果有請指點我文章在哪。不然我必須定論這位珍寶幣博客才是插入不相干照片捏做新聞用來反指責“美國媒體”捏做新聞。（惡人先告狀）
Translation: This photo was published by the media claiming AFG was closed by law. This is clearly not AFG in the background. Media use Hollywood special effects creatively and we have witnessed American freedom of press. How dare "Michael Liu" and his ilk publish all sort of photos to attack AFG. American newspapers are much like the hated paper in the Culture Revolution to spread rumors and lies.
Those of you who can use Google image search will quickly realize this is a photo of the deputies in Lee County Florida. Again, I have not seen this photo in relation with Gemcoin, and again, I have to conclude that this Gemcoin blogger is the one who inserted irrelevant photos to accuse "american Media" of making up news.
那些會用谷歌圖片搜索的會發現這是佛羅里達州李縣(Lee County) 警長部 (Sheriff's Department) 的照片。同樣，我沒有看過此照片與珍寶幣報導有關，再次我必須做結論，這位珍寶幣博客才是插入了不相干照片捏做新聞用來反指責“美國媒體”捏做新聞。（惡人先告狀）
Here comes the hilarious part!
SEC徽标 Seal of the SEC
Dude, this is SEC "Southeastern Conference", a collegiate association http://www.secsports.com/ .
You mistook that for Federal agency SEC "Security and Exchange Commission"? You need eye surgery or remedial English. Or your entire post is based on you randomly baidu'ed some photos.
好傢伙，這個 SEC 是“東南大會” 大學運動聯盟 http://www.secsports.com/。
你把他錯認成 SEC “證券交易委員會”？您該去動眼部手術或英語惡補！或許你這篇文章是你隨便用百度挖照片湊出來的！
Trans: If company was investigated by the FBI, the main door should have been sealed with yellow tape bearing "FBI" labels.
Clearly you have NO understanding of what actually happened. FBI is involved in the investigation, but the closure is by SEC and US Marshals. (Link to source: Pasadena Star News)
On Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. Marshals Service and a court-appointed receiver, Thomas Seaman Co., served a temporary restraining order against USFIA, Chen and a dozen companies in his name.In the US civil investigations and TRO only change the locks. There is no seal involved, in order to avoid negatively prejudicing the public.
週二下午，美國法警和法院指定的接收人，托馬斯·希曼 (Thomas Seaman) 有限公司，執行對USFIA，陳某和在他的名下等十幾家公司的臨時限制令。在美國民事查封只換鎖，不貼封條，避免大眾誤會．
Trans: Government official expressed that Steve Chen has no "criminal" evidence of crime, but American Media can say false things. That is American press freedom, really opened our Chinese eyes.
First of all, this is Arcadia city official speaking, and they are not privy to the investigation details. Furthermore, monetary fraud, such as pyramid scheme, is considered a CIVIL case in the US. You can't even tell the difference between civil vs. criminal law, do you want to show the world how stupid you are?
Translated: US (9/30) LA AM1300 radio claimed that "Steven Chen recently tried to wire 7.5 million, was stopped by FBI". Account was frozen on the 28th, so Steve Chen could not have moved any moment. Clearly this news is fake.
Not only your eyes have problems as proven earlier, clearly your hearing has left you as well. The news actually said that Steve Chen tried to wire 7.5 million after he was interviewed by Arcadia PD, which was many days before the 9/29 shutdown.
I have no idea why you mentioned this Michael Liu. You clearly have something against him, blaming him for everything. Are you trying to divert attention?
Altogether, you have no understanding of American justice system, you have horrible eyesight, horrible hearing, and horrible mind intended to misconstrue the truth for your Gemcoin agenda.
