The CCP's Infighting Culminates Again

-- Wei Jingsheng



The sex scandals of (well-known artist) Wu Yifan and (musician) Li Yundi have not yet receded.  Recently, the most popular one on the overseas Internet has been the case of the lover of a Politburo Standing Committee member and the tennis champion, who also claimed meToo.  This has made many netizens figure out the mystery that the internal fighting of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has set off a new climax.


Who is Zhang Gaoli?  He is a former member of the Standing Committee of the CCP Political Bureau, the first deputy prime minister of China, and an important member of Jiang Zemin's faction.  Why has a case of a mistress for many years gotten hyped so enthusiastically now?  Can there be no political background?  Netizens with brains don't believe it.  Think about it carefully, Wu Yifan and Li Yundi's cases may be warm-up matches for Zhang Gaoli's scandal.  The official main part of the drama has just started; with the presence of the leading roles we are able to see the outstanding part of the drama.


Recently, our emperor Xi has been a little bit miserable: the upcoming 2022 Winter Olympics are not going smoothly, there are energy shortages in China, 32 countries have abolished most-favored-nation status to China, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce has notified everyone to prepare for food shortage, and so on.  All kinds of negative news were displayed in a concentrated manner, and the CCP’s Little Pink Wolf Warriors are not helpful but only add to the chaos.  The Sixth Plenary Session of the CCP’s 19th Congress is about to open and unable to be rescheduled.  What should be done?


Fortunately, Emperor Xi's opponent also had a bit of miseries.  The Jiang faction leaders are in their seventies and eighties, and have little combat effectiveness.  The cadres of the Petroleum Gang, in charge of politics and law, are all in and out of prisons and busy protecting themselves.  Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao couldn't be count on.  So Zhang Gaoli, whom everyone hadn't noticed, became a temporary choice, like a general to be picked out of the dwarfs.  Retirement is not a reason, as ample time is an advantage.  At the age of seventy-five years old, he is still very capable of fighting, to the degree that he actually could get on athletes.  This big fish must not be underestimated.


Zhang Gaoli is on several boats of the Petroleum Gang and the State Council under Jiang Zemin, who is quite well-connected and not very showy.  Talent is rare!  President Xi hadn't noticed this important connection earlier, because of delays caused by the incompetent gangsters who are only good at browning their noses.  It's never too late to make up for it.  That's right, it's him.  There is no wrongdoing in eliminating hidden dangers.  Why did you not change your loyalty earlier?


It is said that although Xi Jinping lacks ability to govern the country, his intelligence and talents are concentrated in the thick black theory of internal fighting.  Earlier, he was so dizzy by the praises that he didn't notice this hidden danger, which is understandable.  Now facing the vicious struggle during the Sixth Plenary Session, if one doesn't watch and listen carefully, then it would not be Daddy Xi.  Since it is a hidden danger, it is not easy to attack him clearly, but to stun him severely through scandal and economics.  This is also the traditional method of the CCP's internal fighting, which has always proved to be successful.


Why not investigate his corruption and bribery directly?  This is brilliance in Xi’s part.  The first is that an investigation will not serve an urgent matter well.  That is also a strength of Wang Qishan, while Xi Jinping lacks the needed resources.  The second is that Zhang Gaoli is a person who clings to the power and rises with his unique vision, who is not very loyal.  This makes it possible to prepare the gun and make him join the party at the frontline.  Once he turns back in the battle, the effect can be extraordinary.  There are many such cases in political struggles, and they often play a key role in determining the outcome of win or lose.


Zhang Gaoli is a short-sighted grass which grows on top of the wall, who knows best how to follow the wind.  If the Sixth Plenary Session of the CCP 19th Congress cannot move Xi Jinping’s position, there will be one year before the CCP’s 20th National Congress.  During this time, if Zhang still does not change his loyalty, there would be enough time to ruin his reputation and put him in Qincheng Prison.  Is there is no single man brave enough in Jiang’s faction, who can guarantee a safe landing for Zhang?  For his wife and children, for his lover, he would have no choice but to betray.  Anyway, no one is not for themselves, otherwise God will be condemned.  Who will care of loyalty then?  Loyalty and faithfulness goes so far as to deceive the common Chinese, but are not for politicians and treacherous doctrines.


Since Xi Jinping served the magic weapon of sex scandals, what magic weapon can the opposition take?  Now we can see the counterattack of public opinion.  From the claims of sexual assaults by his long-term mistress, to the release of Li Yundi, breaking the even bigger scandals of prostitution of movie stars and sexual assaults of female subordinates by some current member of the CCP’s Politburo Standing Committee could follow, and Zhang Gaoli could be forgotten.  The opposition can play these games, while Xi Jinping can also play this kind of game, which would depend on whether the target would change his loyalty.  We the common people wrapped in the clouds and the mist can only be wise afterwards, while watching their internal fights like the ants cooked in the hot pot.


Who will win and who will lose in this wave of internal fights?  In addition to watching the drama, we the common Chinese only need to add the fuel and to worry if it is not chaotic enough.  Anyway, Xi Jinping’s win would be the most detrimental to China and the most harmful to our Chinese people, as the CCP will do more harm to us for more than another decade.
