How Has Matt Palumbo Been Spreading Guo Wengui's Propaganda?
Topic: Newsmax

We've documented that over the past couple of months, interests linked to shady Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui have paid right-wing writers to crank out pro-Guo propaganda in the wake of his arrest on fraud charges, and then paid to publish those writings at right-wing websites like Newsmax and Gateway Pundit. Walker Bragman and OptOut Media have reported how Guo interests have recruited several right-wing writers who were given prompts and drafts they could turn into pieces for paid publication on right-wing websites.

One of thse writers is Matt Palumbo, who works for right-wing radio host Dan Bongino and is trying to make a name for himself by writing books on hot-button subjects; as his bio on the propaganda articles states, "Matt Palumbo is the author of The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros (2021), Dumb and Dumber: How Cuomo and de Blasio Ruined New York (2020), Debunk This! Shattering Liberal Lies (2019), and Spygate (2018)." He also happens to have a new book coming out later this year bashing fact-checkers, published by Bongino's Liberatio Protocol operation.

Palumbo also has quite the body of pro-Guo propaganda, though he's reluctant to admit it (he blocked ConWebWatch when we asked him about it on Twitter). The earliest example of his we could find at Newsmax was a March 30 piece that blamed the arreet of Guo (who also uses the names Miles Guo and Ho Wan Kwok) on the CCP and played whataboutism over it:

All eyes have been on New Federal State of China Founder and anti-CCP dissident Miles Guo following his arrest on March 15, 2023. The arrest represented the culmination of years of targeting of Guo by the CCP. Guo was previously forced to flee from China to America for his personal safety after exposing the CCP’s 13579 plan to unleash a bioweapon, and the CCP has been fighting ever since to have Guo sent back to China.

Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney Damian Williams, a Biden-appointee who previously worked at CCP-linked Paul Weisslaw firm, has urged the judge presiding over the case, Judge Katherine Parker, to deny Guo bail. This is despite Williams making no such demand when he announced charges against Sam Bankman-Fried, the disgraced founder of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX. New York state, and New York City in particular, are jurisdictions where violent criminals routinely are let out of jail without bail.

For backup of his claims, Palumbo linked to two propaganda articles by him that were posted at Gateway Pundit, one of which called calling Guo's arrest the "Collusion of the Century" and the other similarlyplaying Bankman-Fried whataboutism and complaining that Guo "could remain behind bars for entirely politically motivated reasons."

Guo propaganda articles at Gateway Pundit are credited as being paid for by "NewNoah," while the propaganda articles at Newsmax are listed as being paid for by "Token Team," which just so happens to be the name of a company that had partnered with Newsmax a few years earlier to accept cryptocurrency as payment for ads.

Other Palumbo propaganda pieces published at Newsmax include:

One of these propaganda pieces didn't age very well, however. Palumbo wrote in a May 9 piece:

On Friday April 5th, during a campaign stop, Republican Congressman George Santos visited the Darlington Mansion in New Jersey, which serves as the headquarters of the New Federal State of China, a social movement founded by Guo Wengui (also known as Miles Guo).

Guo is currently being detained without bail ahead of trial in New York, which is virtually unprecedented in a state with such lax bail laws. When it comes to the CCP’s infiltration of U.S. society, Congress has had all eyes on TikTok and none on the suspected CCP’s infiltration of our courts, media, and more. Following years of warnings that the CCP had set up their own police stations on U.S. soil to monitor American citizens and Chinese dissidents, recent arrests in New York confirmed it. Dozens of officers of China’s national police force were charged in connection to running an elite task force called the “912 Special Group.” The 912 Group is named after September 12th, the day that Guo filed for asylum in the U.S. after fleeing CCP persecution.

Santos is the first member of Congress to give the persecution of Guo, the public enemy number one of the CCP, the attention it deserves.


Through his advocacy for Guo, Santos also draws attention to the wider issues at stake regarding the CCP’s plans for world domination. Santos highlighted the CCP's systemic human rights violations, including its persecution of religious and ethnic minorities, suppression of freedom of expression, and its aggressive expansionist policies. By shedding light on these abuses, Santos brings the plight of countless individuals suffering under the CCP's oppressive rule to the forefront of discourse. “I’ve done a lot of soul searching. And I will not stop until Miles Guo is free and is given a trial. And I will not stop until the CCP is eradicated from this planet.,” Santos said. “These are the commitments I make to every American. That if you care for freedom, this is an issue I care about, because the true goal of the CCP is world domination. That’s not a conspiracy theory, that’s a fact,” he added before mentioning the CCP’s crimes against Taiwan and Hong Kong.


For America to remain a beacon of liberty - the CCP and its influence must be crushed, and Santos is now the only member of Congress making that a central issue.

Unfortunately for everyone involved, this article came out the same day it was revealed that Santos would face 13 federal criminal charges involving fraud and perjury. Oops!
