Q: Why are we so impotent in politics?
A: Many reasons. However, if we can learn from the Jewish community and
     invest correctly in politics, we can change it very quickly.

Q: How do the Jewish invest in politics?
A: They invest in NGOs (non-governmental organizations) to handle political       issues that are peculiar to Jewish Americans. Examples are (1) AIPAC,        American Israel Public Affairs Comm., whose annual budget is $69.3M,     
       and (2) Anti-Defamation League ($70.8M). These NGOs are feared by        elected politicians. They are the fountains of the Jewish community's        political clout.

Q: Incredible! I'm from Asia. In Asia NGOs have no political clout.
A: We are in America now, stupid. In Asia, if an NGO fights with a politician,      the NGO loses. But in America, the opposite happens - the politicians are      scared of these Jewish NGOs.

Q: Ridiculous! How could it be?
A: Let me explain. In America, when a politician is facing re-election, he/she
     is running the gauntlet. Any politician, who has powerful enemies, could      get beat.

     Click here to verify the following quote from Wikipedia on AIPAC (Go to      "History," 4th paragraph). READ IT CAREFULLY for you to comprehend the       impact of AIPAC on American politics:
      "AIPAC scored two major victories in the early 1980s that established its       image among political candidates as an organization "not to be trifled       with" and set the pace for "a staunchly pro-Israel" Congress over the        next three decades"!!! (emphasis added) THINK & INTERNALIZE
      THE ABOVE INFO.
Q: Unbelievable! Could the politicians hit back at the NGO's?
A: Very difficult for 2 reasons. First, the rule of law protects all NGOs which
     are not violating laws. Secondly, the heads of NGOs are elected by NGO      members, not outside people. The battles between NGOs & politicians      are completely one-sided - in favor of NGOs.

Q: Is 80-20 an NGO?
A: Yes. 80-20 is an NGO with a "political Action Comm." to help elect or
     defeat political candidates, just like AIPAC*. Remember that we are in
     America now. Many things are so different from Asia. To live well, we need      to change to "When in Rome, do as the Romans do."
Q: Does 80-20 know how to get political candidates to beware that it is
    "not to be trifled with"?
A: Not all NGOs know politics. But 80-20 does. Here are examples of how
     80-20 punished AsAm politicians who worked against EQUAL OPPOR-
     TUNITY in college admissions in CA for AsAm youngsters.

      In 2012, 80-20 led from afar to defeat CA Senate Constitutional Amend-  
      ment No. 5 (SCA-5). During the fight, 2 AsAm politicians were particularly  
      obstructive - State Senator Leland Yee and Assemblyman Paul Fong.       Consequently, one day after SCA-5 was defeated, 80-20 publicly declared       to drive both out of politics. They were both out of politics within one year.

Q: So what may we conclude?
A: If we want the Jewish community's political clout, then donate like the
     Jewish! INVEST in AsAm NGOs which know American politics.

     80-20's annual budget is $0.2 M., while that of AIPAC's is $69.3 M. Wow!

Added News: Prof. Anming Hu's former university, UT, has offered to hire him                         back. Hence it is "mission accomplished". However, he still
                        has a few other problems which 80-20 is still helping.

* 80-20 differs from AIPAC in 1 big way: Thus far, 80-20 chooses not to get involved in US foreign policy, although it is legally permitted to do so.

Michelle Wu; Kujtim Sadiku; Your Posts

Update: Michelle Wu for Mayor of Boston

     The Acting Mayor of Boston, Kim Janey, who was formerly Michelle's strongest primary opponent, had endorsed Michelle early. A week ago, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley endorsed Michelle Wu. Pressley is often considered the most influential politician in the black community in Boston. 5 days ago, U.S. Sen. Ed Markey endorsed Michelle Wu. Hence, both U.S. senators of MA have endorsed Wu. It is rather unusual for Congressional delegates to get involved in a mayoral race!

     80-20 continues to confidently predict, as we did 3 weeks ago, that Michelle Wu will win by at least 55% on Nov. 2. To donate (we suggest $80.20 or $802.0), click here. To volunteer, click here2. Today, I sent Michelle another $80.20 in addition to the earlier $802.0 and $80.20. Let's help her win by a 2 to 1 ratio.

SMART Donations Bring Good RESULTS

     80-20 endorsed Michelle Wu & predicted her victory to illustrate the above. If Michelle loses on November 2, you can bring me to task. :-). In paragraphs below, we use the "push-pull" technique to again remind you that "smart donations bring winning results".


     (1) By predicting Michelle's victory before the election is run, we aim to demonstrate to you that 80-20 understands elections deeply. Our purpose? To protect you from wasting your money supporting hopeless election campaigns run by ill-prepared & perhaps even callous AsAm candidates in the future. 80-20 estimated that several millions of precious AsAm dollars were wasted recently - money that could be used to transform 80-20 EF from a boutique org. to a formidable political institution, and

     (2) We also aim to gently warn an AsAm politician, who ran for very high offices without any prior political experience; raised millions from our community by exploiting the political immaturity of many AsAms, and lost miserably in primary elections. 80-20 is not against that person. We want him to study politics for a few years before entering the political arena again. However, this person is now raising money AGAIN to organize the "biggest AsAm PAC" and/or a "3rd political party" with himself as the head. What is his qualification with such losing records? What an insatiable ego. What a spoiled child. AsAms spoiled him with our unreasoned support & generous donations. We need to up our political maturity.

                                                                                                      Oct. 2, 2021
The Honorable Christopher A. Wray
Director, FBI
935 Pennsylvania Ave., NW
Washington, D.C. 20535
 
Dear Director Wray:
 
     Greetings. On Sept. 16, 2021, YOU stated at the Senate Hearing on the
FBI's failure to conduct a timely investigation into the sexual abuse of 
gymnasts as follows:

           ". . . the Supervisory Special Agent in Indianapolis ... that
            individual no longer works for the FBI in any capacity 
             … people who engage in that kind of gross misconduct have
            no place in the FBI …”

    I support your statement 100%. Hence, I write to request that you fire agent Kujtim Sadiku, who committed gross misconduct and injustice against Prof. Anming Hu, in U. S. v. Anming Hu, case no. 3:20-CR-00021.

    Agent Kujtim Sadiku intentionally incriminated Prof. Anming Hu, using
techniques practiced by KGB agents in the former Soviet Union. Here are
exact quotes from a Knox News article about the intentional wrongful acts of Kujtim Sadiku. 

      "FBI Agent Kujtim Sadiku admitted last week in an ongoing trial in Knoxville that federal agents:

  •    Falsely accused former UTK associate professor Dr. Anming Hu of
            being a Chinese spy.
  •    Falsely implicated him as an operative for the Chinese military in
            meetings with Hu’s bosses.
  •    Used false information to put Hu on the federal no-fly list.
  •    Spurred U.S. customs agents to seize Hu’s computer and phone and
            spread word throughout the international research community that HU 
            was poison.
  •    Used false information to justify putting a team of agents to spy on Hu
            and his son, a freshman at UTK, for nearly two years.
  •    Used false information to press Hu to become a spy for the U.S.
            government.   

     In spite of such outrageous misdeeds, Prof. Hu was subsequently completely acquitted. However, Prof. Hu and his entire family continue to suffer deeply. He is still without a job, owing to the lies of FBI agent Kujtim Sadiku. In addition, the integrity of the FBI & the American core value of presumed innocence until proven guilty were violated by Kujtim Sadiku

     We, therefore, look to you to fire Kujtim Sadiku and other bad apples of
his type so that gross injustice like those befallen on Sherry Chen (2012), Xiaoxing Xi (2015) and Anming Hu (2020) will NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.  You promised the gymnast community that the FBI's gross misconduct towards them, "this devastating tragedy," "is never repeated." Are the 5 million Chinese Americans just as worthy of a similar promise by you?

    There are talks in the Chinese-American community suggesting that the FBI intentionally stimulated the wrongful arrests and persecutions, specified in the above paragraph. The purpose is to create a chilling effect on every person of Chinese origin residing in the U.S. However, I personally don’t believe that you, a person of high intellect and integrity, would commit such a totalitarian 
practice in total violation of an American core value - human rights!

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Please fire Kujtim Sadiku & promise us that such devastating misdeeds by FBI agents will never happen to us again.
 
Sincerely yours,

Fire FBI agents, who intentionally wronged us

      week ago, the U.S. Senate held a public hearing on complaints of top-flight gymnasts against the FBI's failures in its investigation of Dr. Larry Nassar, who sexually abused many underaged gymnasts. After their testimonies, FBI Director Wray was asked to testify before the Senate also. He apologized profusely to the victims and to the nation.

      He stated twice such mistakes would "NEVER happen again!"

      How could Director Wray be so certain? Did he pound his desk and propose an FBI-wide sensitivity training program for agents to listen to female
complaints seriously? NO! He FIRED the wrongful agent! Click here to hear
Director Wray's statement in a video, starting at 5:00.


Should the same be done against FBI agents,
who intentionally incriminated Persons of Chinese Origin?

      80-20 President, S. B. Woo, is in the process of writing FBI Director Wray to suggest that the FBI fire the agents who incriminated Prof. Hu in order to ensure that such intentional wrongful prosecution against persons of Chinese origin will "NEVER happen again".
 
The Intentional Wrongful Acts of FBI agent Kujtim Sadiku

      I don't think you need reminding. If you do, here are exact quotes from a Knox News article about the intentional wrongful acts of Kujtim Sadiku.
 
      "FBI Agent Kujtim Sadiku admitted last week in an ongoing trial in Knoxville that federal agents:

  •      Falsely accused former UTK associate professor Dr. Anming Hu of
            being a Chinese spy.
  •      Falsely implicated him as an operative for the Chinese military in
            meetings with Hu’s bosses.
  •      Used false information to put Hu on the federal no-fly list.
  •      Spurred U.S. customs agents to seize Hu’s computer and phone and
           spread word throughout the international research community that HU 
            was poison.
  •      Used false information to justify putting a team of agents to spy on Hu
            and his son, a freshman at UTK, for nearly two years.
  •      Used false information to press Hu to become a spy for the U.S.
            government."    

      Shall the Chinese American community be so timid as to accept such
intentional wrongful acts against us, without requesting FBI Director Wray to fire that agent? I want to hear YOUR view! Be our role model and speak up! The person you will have helped by speaking up could be YOU yourself and/or YOUR children.

Patching 2 Holes in Our Political Maturity

Patching 2 Holes in Our Political Maturity

Hole One:

    Many Asians worship government officials - the higher the rank, the more unreasoning and unquestioning the worship. Asian Americans should not follow this Asian tradition. Unfortunately, many of us still do.

    Accepting this feudal Asian tradition has hurt us in 2 ways:
    (1) Many AsAm elected officials were not working hard for our rightful interests. For example, almost none of the elected AsAm state Senators and Assembly-persons in CA showed up to defend our children's equal opportunity to college admissions. They voted to allow a referendum vote on Prop. 16. Eventually, Prop.16 was defeated because 80-20 helped lead the opposition from afar, defeating Prop. 16 by a landslide - 53% to 47%.
    (2) Our love & respect for elected AsAm officials should be based on their SERVICE to our community, not their ranks. Otherwise, we are encouraging these officials to focus on seeking higher offices to win my admiration rather than performing better service.

Recommended Remedy: Treat our elected AsAm officials as our public servants, not as parent-officials, which Confucian philosophy advocated millennia ago. Reward our public servants for good service. Punish them for significant deficiencies.

Hole Two:

    For unknown reasons, AsAm civic organizations have consistently treated victims of our government's shameful racial profiling policy, as heroes once the victims have been acquitted. We should NOT!

    The black community often treated the victims of civil right movements, whether murdered, beaten or jailed, as heroes. But these victims were normally fierce fighters, who knowingly risked imprisonment or even death for the civil rights of their community.

    Our victims, be they Wenho Lee, Sherry Chen, Prof. Xiaoxing Xi, or Dr. Anming Hu are scientists who have not knowingly risked themselves for the benefit of our community, but who unfortunately were racially profiled by some incompetent FBI agents. We should help them financially, morally and legally and get them acquitted. However, if we treat our acquitted victims as heroes, then we must face the following outrageous irony: our community allows incompetent FBI agents to pick our community's heroes.

Recommended Remedy: Don't treat our race-profiled AsAm victims as heroes. They were unfortunate. They deserve our sympathy and help but not admiration.

A Request

    Do you find discussions about improving our political maturity interesting & helpful? Either way please give me some feedback. Many thanks.

Boston Mayoral Primary on Sept. 14

    We wish our endorsed candidate Michelle Wu good luck on that day.
