Daily Journal: Catching Up With The GemCoins Lawsuit - Plus: Getting Your MouTai On With Sho Tay


Mod: Every once in a while the GemCoins affair shows up in the news, and as a service to all of those who were cheated out of millions of dollars in this bizarre scam we try and keep up with the latest. Here is a report that appeared in the Daily Journal last month, which is a newspaper sold mostly to attorneys. The big news here is John Wuo, the former Arcadia Mayor who was forced to resign his office due to his outsized role in the GemCoins scandal, has been served in the USFIA civil lawsuit.


Getting your Moutai on with Sho Tay!

Mod: The following pictures were sent our way by an attentive reader of The Tattler.


In case you are wondering what is actually going on here, this is the description our wonderful correspondent included with these pictures: "Could he become another John Wuo? Pictures taken Feb. 2017 from the TV. Here Sho Tay is promoting hard liquor MouTai. It is about 106 proof. I saw a MouTai store on San Gabriel in San Gabriel city. The store is not in Arcadia. The product is hard liquor, the store is not in Arcadia, and an Arcadia city councilmember should not promote it. I don't see other politicians lift up the bottle in the video to promote it. Except Sho. The Chinese words on the screen are "Raising your MouTai liquor in the cup and looking forward to a Happy Chinese New Year."

Apparently MouTai is a drink of some historic importance to government functionaries in China, and even here. Here is how Fortune Magazine describes all that (link).

While few outside China buy the liquor, MouTai baijiu is baked into national myth as the drink of choice for Communist Party leaders. It’s what Mao Zedong and his comrades toasted with at the founding of the People’s Republic in 1949. Just four years ago, the distiller was battling a slowdown as an austerity drive in Beijing slashed demand from government officials. But purchases by ordinary Chinese have more than compensated since then.

So there you have it. Get plowed with Chairman Mao. And Sho. But as a warning, if you do consume too much of this strong stuff it will be a long march to the bathroom.

You might want to bring a bucket.

  2. In the following link, if translated into English, it states that Chinese News USA (aka NewsAgencyAmerica.com) was founded by the same founder and team members who founded Chinese Daily USA in 2009:
    http://www.chinesenewsusa.com/page/show-136.html

    Tay was the owner of Chinese Daily USA back in 2015. See the old post about it here:
    http://sierramadretattler.blogspot.com/2015/08/chinese-daily-usa-is-publication-owned.html

    So apparently Sho Tay just got rid of Chinese Daily USA and replaced it with Chinese News USA (aka NewsAgencyAmerica.com), maybe due to the above Tattler post.

    Then, on March 6th, Sho Tay held a Chinese press conference for Harbicht and Chandler claiming that they had gained more support. He had the press conference covered on his own newspaper at:

  6. 6:44 AM, looks like CNS Enterprises Inc is the company that sponsored the new year party on March 2, 2018 that Tay participated in. Here's the info about it:
    Business Activity: Importer; Address: 2708 Chico Ave, South El Monte,CA,91733-1619

    The party was held in Montery Park. Many other cities' council members went there, too.

  7. 7:06 AM, Tay wore a different set of clothes on the TV show, not the same clothes that he wore to the new year party on Mar. 2.

    So it must be two different events.

    1. Could be 2 different events or he changed to another costume. It is a traditional custom for the Chinese bribe changing to different costumes in a Chinese wedding banquet event. And I don't see why this custom should be restricted to gender specific and wedding events only.

  8. Hard liquor in a plastic bottle that looks like motor oil additive. (or shaving cream?). Packaged in China. Think baby formula or dog food adulterated with melamin to increase the protean value. Killed many dogs in US and in China sent many babies to hospital with kidney failure. How can this be regulated?

    1. Moutai has been named as the national liquor in China. Yet, it have been discovered that water used in its manufacture actually comes from the polluted Chishui River (赤水河) in Renhuai, Guizhou province. The river is badly contaminated by the untreated sewage from the hundreds of breweries nearby.

      According to one investigative reporter, the source of the pollution is Kweichow Moutai Company, a state-owned enterprise in China, specializing in the production and sale of Maotai liquor. However, the firm blamed the pollution on other breweries.

      Maotai has been certified as an organic product even though Chinese media reports uncovered high levels of pesticides are used in the milo (sorghum) fields, from where the main ingredients come.

      Samples of river water and pesticides were collected by the reporter but were later confiscated by the police. The reporter was then detained and questioned for more than ten hours. Most of the evidence collected was destroyed. The scandal is expected to impact on sales of the product and the company's stock price.

      1. Chinese felt that they are underrepresented in Arcadia and they want Tay to be the next City Major no matter what.
      2. Chinese supports Tay b/c of peer pressure
      3. Chinese supports Tay due to misinformation
      4. Chinese don't support Tay b/c they know he is corrupt.
      5. Chinese don't care one way or the other.

      The Garden Cafe on Baldwin Ave. redone its parking lot and bathroom due to an ADA lawsuit.
      Have anyone heard about taste the town? The program was started over a year ago by Sho Tay. He use two DAR buses to pick up people (Approx 35 people) to restaurant in town. Most of the people are not our residents but our DAR funding are misused on this program. Each passenger paid $10-15 that including the dining, tip, and transportation. Do you know Arcadia city subsidized about $24 each person for the transportation cost thru DAR federal funding. According to the Connection from Arcadia Senior Services that you be able to have taste the town with a City Council Member. It should be corrected to with Sho Tay only. In addition, he brought bad spirit into these restaurants. Empire Seafood Restaurant (It used to name Spring Bamboo Seafood) was the biggest Chinese Restaurant in town. It ended up shutting down by fire department several months after Sho Tay brought Taste the Town over there. Garden Cafe had the famous robbery in the parking lot a few months ago, now it closed for the redone of parking lot and bathroom due to an ADA lawsuit . These all happened after Sho Tay brought Taste the Town there. All restaurant owners before you accept Sho Tay's Taste the Town into your place, be aware of some bad spirits come with it. Unless, he love to bring people to the restaurants have depress business.
