Xi JinpingvisitCentral Asia’s return to stealth stirs up rumors
According to the Xinhua news agency, the Chinese Communist Party’s military reform and national defense seminar was held in Beijing on 21 September. Xu Qiliang and Zhang Youxia, two vice-chairmen of the Central Military Commission, gave speeches during the meeting and members of the meeting were attended by the Central Military Commission Li Zuocheng, Miao Hua and Zhang Shengmin.
Xi Jinping, chairman of the CCP military commission, did not attend the meeting, but only gave “instructions” to the meeting, asking the military to focus on preparing for war, and so on. Another absent military commission member is the Chinese defense ministerWei Fengheis Xi Jinping’s promoted and used solo general.
From the CCTV news footage of the day it can be seen that Li Qiaoming, the former Northern Theater Command commander who had been fired earlier, attended the meeting and sat in the front row. Previously, Li Qiaoming was rumored to be involved in a “mutiny”.
Xi Jinping subsequently visited Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan from 14 to 16 September and attended the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (called the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit) led by the CCP and Russia.SCO Summit). According to the People’s Daily, the CCP media, Xi Jinping “went straight to the airport to return to China” after the Shanghai Cooperation Summit on the 16th, and returned to Beijing at midnight on the 16th.
Xi Jinping has not been seen in public since his return to Beijing and has been invisible for more than a week.
Looking at the official media news, I found that the CCP’s official Xinhua News Agency reported that on September 22, Xi Jinping sent condolences to the “Chinese Farmers Harvest Festival”; on the 23rd, Xi sent a congratulatory letter on the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the China News Agency.
During this time, a lot of unfavorable news about Xi was spread on Twitter and even WeChat in mainland China. One of the most popular news on Twitter was that Hu and Wen successfully convinced Song Ping, the former standing committee member, to take over the Central Guard Office. Xi returned to Beijing on the evening of the 16th, was checked at the airport and was placed under house arrest in the house in Zhongnanhai.
Wu Ming (pseudonym), a continental Internet writer who did not wish to be named, told the Epoch Times reporter on Sept. 23 that he learned the news that Xi Jinping is now texting only from the air and is under house arrest, and it is not allowed to appear. Furthermore, he was not allowed to participate in the most important reform meeting of the Military Commission.
Wu Ming believes that if he is indeed under house arrest, he may not have to wait until the seventh plenary session to announce that the nucleic acid (canceling the outbreak prevention policy) will run out soon.
However, some netizens on Twitter believe that the reason for Xi Jinping’s invisibility and absence from the meeting may be that he needs to be isolated for a period of time in accordance with outbreak prevention and control regulations after visiting. abroad.
Analysis: Anti-Xi rumors to vent dissatisfaction
News observer Wang He told The Epoch Times on Sept. 23 that it’s not a problem for Xi Jinping to show his face, and he often didn’t show up for a long time in advance. Before the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping’s visit to Central Asia was in itself a performance of his success and was not a risky visit.
He believes that many people have not reconciled with Xi Jinping IIIre-electedto invent something. “Rumors like that are flying all over the sky. From a political point of view, it has no substantial meaning. It’s just an expression of dissatisfaction.”
Zhang Tianliang, the host of the well-known auto-media “Politics in the World”, also believed in the program of the 22nd that the declaration of Xi’s seizure of power did not conform to basic political common sense. He said that if Xi Jinping loses power, how can he have the ability to severely condemn the members of Sun Lijun’s political gang?
During the time Xi Jinping was invisible, six “political and legal tigers” who were members of Sun Lijun’s political gang have been sentenced to severe sentences over the past three days.
“Nan Zao” is re-elected? Report again on the visit of European dignitaries in November
Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post, which is considered a foreign propaganda expert, said in a Sept. 22 report that German Federal Chancellor Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron could go to Beijing to meet Xi Jinping this November. ‘year.
“Nanzao” is controlled by Chinese businessman Jack Ma, who is also accused of being close to Zeng Qinghong, a leader of Jiang’s faction. On July 18, the newspaper also announced that four European countries would visit China in November, stating that “this fact indirectly confirms that Xi Jinping will have a third term”. But the next day the Chinese Foreign Ministry called it “fake news”. “Southern Morning” reiterated on July 19 that its invitation should be officially confirmed by the end of the year.
Li Lin, a current affairs commentator, told The Epoch Times that “Nan Zao” has some restrictions on the content of its coverage because it is located in Hong Kong. Any news that touches the inside of the CCP can easily be seen as an outburst from the CCP. But sometimes the news doesn’t necessarily come from the same faction and there is an element of internal struggle. For example, the news this time around can be seen as coming from the Xi faction, to show that Xi will essentially be re-elected.
Wang He believes that from the point of view of the CCP’s diplomatic structure, it is possible for the leaders of European countries to visit China after the 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party. The CCP is now trying to conquer the EU. After the re-election of Xi Jinping, he will want to divide relations between the United States and the European Union and confront the United States. But the European leaders will come only after his third term, when he will have a solid position.
“He will certainly make diplomatic efforts in this regard. But he will not reveal it until he succeeds,” Wang He said.
