It is believed that the work conference at the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, which finally finalized the personnel arrangements of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, has kicked off this week in Beidaihe, and the storm is about to come. This conference has attracted worldwide attention because it concerns the future and destiny of China and the world. According to the existing regulations of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping must arrive at the station at the 20th National Congress when his term of office expires. In this way, Xi Jinping’s political line, which has harmed both the country and the people, will come to an end, and the Chinese nation will have the opportunity to set things right, and even initiate a constitutional transition. However, since Xi Jinping took the throne, he has been using his power for personal gain, doing everything he can to overthrow the tenure system and restore lifelong tenure. Once Xi Jinping is re-elected as the third general secretary of the Communist Party of China at the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the full-fledged Xi Jinping will follow his usual practice of nepotism since he took the throne, and will more recklessly install “Xi’s family army” servants in the entire state power system, and intensify the implementation. Xi Jinping’s political line has caused greater harm to China and the world.

At this critical moment, what choices will the CCP politicians who can decide Xi Jinping’s political fate make?

For some time now, rumors of “Xi Down & Li Up” have been rampant. This kind of rumor spread like wildfire, because it is what people want and reflects the aspirations of many people. Xi Jinping’s perverse actions, replacing collective leadership with individual dictatorships, and restoring totalitarian dictatorships, are outrageous. Xi Jinping, who has been in power for ten years after entering Dabao and holding the highest power in China, has fully proved to the world that he is an arrogant, ignorant and cruel dictator. The world has been suffering for a long time, and the government and the opposition not only look forward to learning many people, but some people have also taken various practical actions, especially on June 14, someone released the “Global Reverse Learning to Save the Nation “Emerald Movement” Proposal in Chinese and English at the same time. , calling on people around the world who are concerned about the future and destiny of China and the world to echo each other and join hands to reverse Xi Jinping.

The CCP’s public officials followed the public opinion and collectively forced the palace at the Beidaihe Conference, forcing Xi Jinping to hand over power in accordance with the CCP’s express regulations. This is undoubtedly the most convenient and ready-made mechanism for Xi Jinping.

The only worry is that the important members of the Communist Party of China who have the power to decide whether Xi Jinping will stay or stay will not dare to take the step of collectively coercing the palace. The reason why they dare not take this step is because they cannot prevent Xi Jinping from using the trump card of “anti-corruption with an iron fist” and a frantic counterattack.

Xi Jinping and his followers have used the “iron-fisted anti-corruption” trump card to weed out dissidents and subdue political opponents. In the five years from the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China to the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the “Xi Wang Alliance” won two state-level officials and four deputy state-level officials on corruption charges, especially one of the successors designated by different generations. A Sun Zhengcai. Twelve percent of the Central Committee members and alternate members of the Central Committee were convicted on corruption charges. In accordance with the strict regulations of the Party discipline and state law, when it comes to corruption, almost no senior CCP officials are exempt, including Xi Jinping himself. However, Xi Jinping did not really fight corruption, especially not institutionally, but selectively. In the name of anti-corruption, he practiced “black eats black”, cracked down on political enemies, and eliminated dissidents. Those senior CCP officials captured by Xi Jinping on corruption charges are not because of their corruption, but because they have dissent towards Xi Jinping, or at least because Xi Jinping thinks they are threatening, disloyal to Xi Jinping, or their “loyalty is not absolute”.

Compared with the big crime of “stealing the country”, which is arbitrary and abusing autocratic power, the greed of money and sex is only a “stealing hook”. The absurd farce of “the prince of the country, the one who steals the hook” has been staged for more than 2,000 years in the “family world” of China’s imperial autocracy initiated by Qin Shihuang, and it continues to be staged in the “party world” of the CCP’s totalitarian party-state and post-totalitarian party-state. .

On the eve of the Beidaihe Conference, the Xiao Jianhua, Sun Lijun and Fu Zhenghua cases involving a wide range of cases were held in secret on July 4, July 8 and July 28 respectively. As we all know, Xiao Jianhua acts as the white glove of many powerful family members at the same time, mastering their top financial secrets; Sun Lijun and Fu Zhenghua have deep roots in the political and legal system, and their backstage is extremely powerful. The political machinations of Xi Jinping and his thugs are very obvious. They are using these corruption cases to force the senior CCP officials involved in the cases to submit to orders or to reach behind-the-scenes deals with Xi Jinping. It is very likely that they have reached a deal behind the scenes, “fight but not broken”.

According to CCP rules, current and outgoing members of the Politburo Standing Committee have the right to collectively decide on Xi Jinping’s position as general secretary, although the general secretary of the CCP is formally elected or removed by the CCP Central Committee. Few of the current and outgoing members of the Politburo, who are still alive, sincerely want Xi Jinping to be re-elected. The former general secretary Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao certainly did not want to see Xi Jinping continue to be re-elected, because their political achievements and reputation were denied by Xi Jinping, their cronies were purged by Xi Jinping on a large scale, the post-totalitarian pattern they wanted to maintain was broken by Xi Jinping, and their children Threatened by Xi Jinping to clean up, and after their death, their children and descendants are likely to be retaliated and killed. Zeng Qinghong, the former leader of the second generation of red who helped Xi Jinping to the throne, was completely marginalized, and his relatives and former subordinates were brutally suppressed by Xi Jinping. The former Premier Wen Jiabao was known as being close to the people and pragmatic. He had a special liking for deepening the reform of the political system and even the transformation of the constitutional government. Before leaving office, he spared no effort to take down Bo Xilai, who was inclined to restore totalitarianism. Since Xi Jinping took the throne, Bo Xilai’s totalitarian Restoration from Chongqing to the whole country is obviously incompatible with Wen Jiabao. The current premier, Li Keqiang, is eager to see Xi Jinping get off the bus at the station, which is in line with human nature, because Li Keqiang received systematic higher education at Peking University after the reform and opening up. The intended successor, but was seized by Xi Jinping by accident. After Xi Jinping ascended the throne, he became a useless “waste prince” and suffered from Xi Jinping’s exclusion and humiliation. The current Vice-President Wang Qishan, who actively participated in the reform and opening up in the 1980s, gained a reputation for being enlightened and capable. He also accumulated deep connections at home and abroad during the eras of Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, but was rejected in Xi Jinping’s self-proclaimed “new era”. Xi Jinping used his role as a thug who specialized in dirty work and was in charge of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and became the number one cruel official, equivalent to the Dongchang factory in the Ming Dynasty. When Qishan ended up in such a situation, it was inevitable that he would be angry and unwilling. Those who had no ambitions for profit and wealth were cut off by Xi Jinping, and they hated Xi Jinping to the core.

Blocking Xi Jinping’s re-election is a wise choice for both the current and outgoing members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, both public and private. However, to make such a choice, there is a huge risk, especially the tight monitoring of Xi Jinping’s spy rule has reached the level of mercury spilling, making it impossible for the “rebels” to conspire and form a group. It is not difficult to imagine that the undercurrent of Xi Jinping is turbulent and the city is full of storms. However, do they have the wisdom and courage to give it a go, even if the fish die and the net is broken? At this time, they will make amends and make atonement for their sins. They will be forgiven by the world and create a future together in magnificent reconciliation.

In order to set the tone for this Beidaihe meeting, and even to set the tone for the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the nondescript “main provincial and ministerial leading cadres’ study the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important speech and welcome the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party” was held in July 26-27 in Beijing. Xi Jinping reiterated the cliché at the scene, saying that he has already tied the safety of the world to one, and that what the 20th National Congress needs to solve is the question of “what flag to raise and what road to take”. What Xi Jinping has raised is the broken flag of dictatorship and the evil path of totalitarian restoration. Contrary to Xi Jinping’s wishes, what China needs today is to hold high the banner of righteousness against dictatorship and take the right path of constitutional transformation.

Aside from stubborn totalitarians like Xi Jinping, those who embrace modernity centered on individual autonomy and individual freedom in the Chinese court and opposition realize that fighting dictatorship is a billion times more important than fighting corruption. As far as Chinese history is concerned, the bad habit of supporting dictatorship and punishing corruption has plagued the country for thousands of years. It is urgent for Chinese people to get out of the misunderstanding and trap of relying on dictatorship to punish corruption.
