Xi Jinping (born June 15, 1953) is the President of the People's Republic of China, current General Secretary of the Communist Party of China. In 2013, he became General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party and president of the state council. He is also Chairman of the Central Military Commission.
In 2018 Xi Jinping said Beijing would take “an active part in leading the reform of the global governance system.” Former U.N. investigator-turned-whistleblower Peter Gallo said,
“the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights was caught handing over names of Chinese human rights activists to the Chinese government, so the Chinese police and security agencies could go and intimidate their relatives in China, all to ensure that nobody spoke out against China being elected to the Human Rights Council.”
Xi Jinping and atheism
In 2014, The New American indicated:
|“||The Communist Party of China (CPC) is letting its members know that the party’s official adherence to militant atheism has not changed; Party members are not allowed to be Christians, or to hold any other religious beliefs. That is the clear message sent by a top Party official in an editorial published on November 14 in the Global Times, the international version of People’s Daily, the official newspaper and mouthpiece of the CPC.||”|
Xi Jinping Thought
In October 2017 an amendment including Xi's name was added to the CCP's party constitution, marking the first time a living leader's name was added since Mao Zedong, reflecting Xi's standing within the Communist Party. The amendment was approved by all 2,300 delegates attending the party congress, is called "Xi Jinping Thought for the New Era of Socialism With Chinese Special Characteristics."
The move placed Xi on the same level as Mao and Deng Xiaoping, whose names also appear in the party constitution in articles reflecting their principles. The political principles of Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, Xi's predecessors, were added to the party constitution, but their names were not.
The New York Times Chris Buckley notes that Xi's authority "is not directly comparable to the almost godlike influence Mao commanded," but, at the same time, "the Chinese economy, state and military are much more powerful now than they were under Mao, or even under Deng, which gives Mr. Xi far more global influence than his predecessors."
Xi Jinping Thought is an effort to avoid the demise of Communist party power such as happened in the Soviet Union as the result of Perestroika and Glasnost reform movements instituted by Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev.
Document 9 was leaked by a Chinese dissident journalist who was in turn sentenced to a seven-year imprisonment for "leaking state secrets". The name of the document, Communiqué on the Current State of the Ideological Sphere (also translated as the Briefing on the Current Situation in the Ideological Realm) comes from it being the ninth such document issued that year in China. It is thought that Document No. 9 was issued by the General Office of the Central Committee, and would have required the approval of Xi and other top leaders. The New York Times reported that it "bears the unmistakable imprimatur of Xi Jinping". The document specifically addresses the following issues which it regards as problems using these same terms in the document itself:
- Promoting Western Constitutional Democracy: An attempt to undermine the current leadership and the "socialism with Chinese characteristics" system of governance. (Including the separation of powers, the multi-party system, general elections, and independent judiciaries.)
- Promoting “universal values” in an attempt to weaken the theoretical foundations of the Party’s leadership. (That “the West’s values are the prevailing norm for all human civilization”, that “only when China accepts Western values will it have a future”.)
- Promoting civil society in an attempt to dismantle the ruling party’s social foundation. (i.e. that individual rights are paramount and ought to be immune to obstruction by the state.)
- Promoting Neoliberalism, attempting to change China’s Basic Economic System. (i.e. unrestrained economic liberalization, complete privatization, and total marketization.)
- Promoting the West’s idea of journalism, challenging China’s principle that the media and publishing system should be subject to Party discipline.
- Promoting historical nihilism, trying to undermine the history of the CCP and of New China. (For example to deny the scientific and guiding value of Mao Zedong thought.)
- Questioning Reform and Opening and the socialist nature of socialism with Chinese characteristics. (For example, saying “We have deviated from our Socialist orientation.”)
Dictator for life
In February 2018 the CCP Central Committee approved a measure making Xi Jinping dictator for life. Xi Jinping is said to be surrounded by sycophant's and yes men. His swift rise to power was accomplished by so-called "anti-corruption" campaigns, stomping out rival power centers in the military and party.
CCP global pandemic
Xi Jinping quashed early reports of the transmissibility of SARS-CoV-2 and convinced the World Health Organization (WHO) to mislead the entire planet on the danger of global outbreak. On March 1, 2020 the Final Report of the China Tribunal on the Chinese Communist Party's mass murder and genocide of Falun Gong was obscured by the pandemic and economic crash that the CCP unleashed upon the planet. By the end of May, under the cover of the global crisis, Xi Jinping moved to destroy Hong Kong democracy in violation of internarial agreements.
According to Kyle Bass, Chief Investment Officer at Hayman Capital Management,
Secretary Xi is in trouble within China. According to my sources within, the party elite want Xi gone. The Guangdong elite (Uncle Deng’s family) are beginning to rattle the cages of change against the supposed “emperor for life”. #XiJinping #china #ChinaLiedAndPeopleDied
In response to the CCP global pandemic unleashed upon the world, on May 20, 2020 the United States issued a document titled United States Strategic Approach to The People’s Republic of China that describes the threat the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) poses to all humanity. Th document states in excerpt:
The CCP promotes globally a value proposition that challenges the bedrock American belief in the unalienable right of every person to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Under the current generation of leadership, the CCP has accelerated its efforts to portray its governance system as functioning better than those of what it refers to as “developed, western countries.”
Beijing is clear that it sees itself as engaged in an ideological competition with the West.
The CCP aims to make China a “global leader in terms of comprehensive national power and international influence,” as General Secretary Xi expressed in 2017, by strengthening what it refers to as “the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics.”
This system is rooted in Beijing’s interpretation of Marxist-Leninist ideology and combines a nationalistic, single party dictatorship; a state-directed economy; deployment of science and technology in the service of the state; and the subordination of individual rights to serve CCP ends.
This runs counter to principles shared by the United States and many likeminded countries of representative government, free enterprise, and the inherent dignity and worth of every individual.
One disastrous outgrowth of such an approach to governance is Beijing’s policies in Xinjiang, where since 2017, authorities have detained more than a million Uighurs and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups in indoctrination camps, where many endure forced labor, ideological indoctrination, and physical and psychological abuse.
Outside these camps, the regime has instituted a police state employing emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and biogenetics to monitor ethnic minorities’ activities to ensure allegiance to the CCP. Widespread religious persecution – of Christians, Tibetan Buddhists, Muslims, and members of Falun Gong – includes the demolition and desecration of places of worship, arrests of peaceful believers, forced renunciations of faith, and prohibitions on raising children in traditions of faith.
The CCP’s campaign to compel ideological conformity does not stop at China’s borders.
In recent years, Beijing has intervened in sovereign nations’ internal affairs to engineer consent for its policies.
PRC authorities have attempted to extend CCP influence over discourse and behavior around the world, with recent examples including companies and sports teams in the United States and the United Kingdom and politicians in Australia and Europe.PRC actors are exporting the tools of the CCP’s techno-authoritarian model to countries around the world, enabling authoritarian states to exert control over their citizens and surveil opposition, training foreign partners in propaganda.
