Calpers Top Money Man Is Swept Up in Chinese Espionage Fears

Schwarzman, Marks defend CIO Ben Meng as allegiance questioned
Niall Ferguson warned Meng of backlash amid Trump trade war
It was the kind of warning familiar to Fox viewers in the Trump era: An immigrant posed a danger to U.S. security.

Only this time, the purported threat wasn’t part of an “invasion” from Mexico or Guatemala -- he controls the fate of the retirement investments of millions of people in California.

HOWEVER , the name to consider here is STEVE SCHWARZMAN

2. He has increased gambling with retirement funds

I just clicked on an article at random about him, https://www.pionline.com/pension-funds/calpers-cio-revolution-now

He increased the ability to gamble with these funds tremendously. At least that's how I read it. Who was benefiting from this increased leverage? Who got the money as alleged investments in risky enterprises?

4. Yes, please expand. I'm learning the Schwartzman ties to it all as well

The more we learn , the more astonishing it becomes that America has fuunctioned as long as it did.

It's long past time for the massive criminal componant be dragged into to the open air.

This has been in play for years & is the only way a mobbed up criminal like Trump became seated in our highest office.

5. Thanks!

There is so much corruption on a corporate, government, and international level. It's overwhelming to wrap your head around.

The irony of trumpers who rail against "globalism" is that global capitalism is the biggest threat we face (IMHO)


Added your info to my list. I hope someone, someday can put it all together in a narrative that makes sense.
