On October 16, 2022, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will hold its 20th National Congress. The meeting of the “proletariat” will test the management of the current National Secretary, Xi Jinping. Meanwhile, large fractures in the organization come to light amid a climate of persecution of dissidents—scapegoats that the CCP has chosen.
Premier Li Keqiang threatens Xi’s third term in office.
According to Chen Pokong, a famous YouTuber based in the United States, whose predictions put the CCP in check, the change of date of the conclave has a special meaning. The communist meeting will not be held in November but in October, showing that the reorganization of power in China, so far in the hands of Xi Jinping, is being maintained.
Chen Pokong uses these dates as a road map to determine who is in command of the red ship: Xi Jinping or Li Keqiang. But the threats of a coup d’état remain latent.
Much has been said these days about the guiding principle that Xi Jinping has outlined for the CCP, called the “Two Establishments,” that is, political power in his hands and the power of his communist thinking over the party apparatus. It seems that Xi Jinping will slowly lose political power, and the party will ensure that some of his ideas remain “guiding” ideas.
Xi Jinping will gradually withdraw from power.
This updated coup d’état form seems to be the way out given by the party apparatus to avoid another Mao Tse Tung in the line of succession of power.
Chen Pokong assures that the Chinese state media are giving more time in their programming to the words of the Chinese Prime Minister, Li Kequiang, who has survived ostracism.
For example, Chen Pokong points out: “In May 2022, at a ceremony to celebrate the “good” work of the Public Security System (PSS), in charge of persecuting dissidents, Li Keqiang came in behind Xi Jinping to the meeting, today it does not seem to be the case.
The party imprisons dissidents amid preparations for the Congress.
The PSS is the entity in charge of the forced disappearances of dissenting citizens and defined who controlled China last May. However, at the moment, the leader with the highest rating in the official channels is the Premier, Li Keqiang. He has taken control of the PSS which means more repression against dissenters.
In the regions of Beijing, Hunan, and Jiangxi, the repression against dissidents has reached high levels of violence. Additionally, it includes a ban on aerial drone activities.
The PSS apparatus has launched 20 measures, including censoring citizens critical of the Xi Jinping regime and foreign press reports on them. What’s more banishment of dissidents or imprisonment in secret locations stands out.
Social engineering and control measures.
In Neijiang, Sichuan province, the CCP decided that for every ten families, one person will be responsible for the maintenance of “order and ideology,” that person is in charge of investigating the “personal risk” that each citizen means for the stability of the regime.
In Zhuzhou, Hunan province, the “citizens” have been informed that from now on, they are in the “citizen control phase,” according to a dissident named Mr. Tan.
Moreover, hostel owners are told which tenants to evict. Recently, fire drills have been carried out in Beijing’s Forbidden City and large-scale event venues. In addition, neighborhood Committees have moved to the phase of reporting residents within the floating population of the Capital. They will be escorted from the city to travel or work elsewhere.
Miss. Li claims that her husband was fired by the director of the garbage dump where he worked in Daxing, a suburb of Beijing. It demonstrates the repressive climate that has been implemented against the Chinese people.
She said, “He is not allowed to work in Beijing, he is not allowed to stay here,” confirming the repression against her husband.
Another woman, Mrs. Wang, from Hebei, claimed that arrests of people are in the thousands: “The national security guards arrest people every day. Yesterday, one person was forcibly taken away from Yancheng and Jiangsu.” But, she added, “two police cars arrested seven or eight people without any news of their whereabouts.”
To cite one example, you must get around three lines of defense that the CCP has initiated to enter Beijing. The first line is at the Tianjin train station, the second is in the vicinity of Beijing, and the third obstacle is in the capital’s urban area.
Lin Shengliang, a dissident from Shenzhen, said: “These are the toughest security measures in history, they are unprecedented, the control over dissidents at police points is mind-boggling,” emphasizes Shengliang.
For the CCP apparatus, these measures make it easier for them, on the one hand, to keep dissidents and citizens under control. But also, for the CCP, it guarantees the encirclement and militarization of the Capital. The containment and management would be very useful for Xi Jinping in the middle of a coup or to paralyze the Prime Minister, Li Keqiang, if the winds are unfavorable to them.
Who will win the power struggle within the Chinese Communist Party?
