[Epoch Times November 18, 2021]Hello everyone, it is November 17th (Wednesday) Eastern Time, and November 18th (Thursday) Beijing Time. Welcome to chat about current affairs every day. I am Sydney (Wang Yuhe); I am Qin Peng. (Qin Peng live broadcast)

Today’s focus: Merkel admitted for the first time that she was “maybe naive” towards the CCP. Will Europe’s China policy have a major shift? Xinhua News Agency wrote that it exposed the fierce infighting and that Xi Jinping’s power was not as stable as it was shown.

Qin Peng: Xinhua News Agency, the core mouthpiece of the Communist Party of China, published a long article reviewing the resolutions of the Sixth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee. It exposed the internal incentive struggles of the Communist Party of China between the lines, which caused the content of the resolution to be quite different from what the outside world expected. This shows that Xi Jinping’s status as a deity is not as absolute as the outside world imagined.

Sydney: The big news today is that German Chancellor Merkel, who has always been considered a good friend of the CCP, admitted for the first time that he was too naive in the beginning when it came to relations with the CCP. “German security, European security”, “Germany change, European change”, will this mean that Germany and Europe are about to undergo a major shift? On the same day, the European Union issued a joint statement between the United States, Europe and Japan, stating that it would counterattack the non-market economic behavior of third countries, which was clearly aimed at the CCP.

Xinhua News Agency 4D “Historical Resolution Birth Record” Exposes Fierce CCP Infighting

Sydney: The sixth plenary session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China just passed, the third resolution in the history of the Communist Party was officially announced on Tuesday. The resolution determined the historical positioning of the previous leaders of the Communist Party and Xi Jinping himself, and determined whether Xi Jinping will be re-elected. It will also have a significant impact on China in the next few decades, and arouse great attention from the world.

However, before and after this resolution was issued, there were many strange things. For example, we noticed that the CCP’s mouthpiece and party media had leaked secrets, that is, fierce internal fighting broke out within the CCP. Let’s talk about this story and our analysis today.

Qin Peng: Yes. Let’s first talk about the four weird points of the CCP’s resolution:

The first one is the content of the resolution. It is different from the so-called chronology of Mao, Deng, Xi, Xi Jinping and Mao Zedong passed by the party media. Although the communiqué of the meeting used a large amount of praise for Xi Jinping, it is obvious that the communiqué has praised Jiang Zemin and Hu Wen. The times have been advocating in a parallel and short-term approach. In the resolution, all kinds of advocacy were made to the leaders of the previous generations. This shows that Xi Jinping has not fully achieved his goals.

Sydney: The second strange thing is that the official resolution text has not been released. The conference ended on the 11th and was officially released on the 16th.

The third strange point is that the full text of the resolution once again denies the Ten-Year Cultural Revolution and the Great Leap Forward, and the argument basically continues the second resolution. However, this is obviously different from what Xi Jinping said before that the previous 30 years of history cannot be denied. This also shows that Xi Jinping’s characterization of Mao Zedong was partially denied by the resolution, and Xi Jinping does not have the full right to speak.

Qin Peng: Yes, his internship Jinping wanted to clean up Mao Zedong. The previous communiqué only mentioned Mao Zedong’s merits. This is completely different from the previous CCP’s second resolution. But judging from the final third resolution, Xi Jinping is back on the track of the second historical resolution of the CCP. On this issue, I think some commentators say that Xi Jinping has failed.

Sydney: The fourth weird place is that we know that after every important decision of the CCP, the army will come forward to express its position, such as serious study, resolute support, resolute defense, etc., to bless the party leader’s decision with the barrel of a gun. However, this time, the military rarely said anything.

Qin Peng: Well, for example, after Jiang Zemin came to power in the blood of students in 1989, he wanted to turn to the left, discuss surnamed capital society, oppose bourgeois liberalization, and denied Deng Xiaoping’s reform and opening up. This made Deng Xiaoping very angry. He started his southern tour in January 1992 and delivered a long speech in Shenzhen. He also shouted cruel words of “Whoever does not reform will step down.”

Why did Deng Xiaoping dare to do this? It is because of the support of the military that the “gun command the party”. At that time, brothers Yang Shangkun and Yang Baibing also shouted in the military newspaper the slogan “The army escorts the’reform and opening up'”. This frightened Jiang Zemin, and he quickly turned around. Later, many people thought that Jiang Zemin was an enlightened sect, but that is not the case at all.

Sydney: Yes, a book written by Ezra F. Vogel, a professor at Harvard University. The “Deng Xiaoping Times” revealed that Deng Xiaoping once held a secret meeting in Zhuhai during his southern tour to replace Jiang Zemin with Qiao Shi.

Interestingly, the Beijing-based CCP’s Foreign Propaganda Network also reviewed this history in 2018, with the title “Jiang Zemin’s Personal Statement: Deng Xiaoping wanted to replace me with Qiao Shi.” At that time, it was believed by the outside world that Xi Jinping was beating Jiang Zemin.

Qin Peng: We know that what to write and how to write such an important historical document is not a simple matter. Why is the final document so much different from what Xi Jinping expected and expressed before?

We saw that a 10,000-character article published by Xinhua News Agency today gave us part of the answer.

The name of this article is a bit long. It is called “The Birth of the Resolution of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on the Party’s Major Achievements and Historical Experience in a Century of Struggle.” On the surface, this is a eulogizing article, but it exposes the huge differences and incentive struggles within the CCP.

Why is it said that the process of making this resolution exposed the fierce infighting of the CCP? Let’s take a closer look at some key parts.

Sydney: This article, on the surface, is a tribute report, saying that on April 1st, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China issued a notice to “organize discussions and extensively solicit opinions on the issues of the plenary meeting within a certain range within and outside the party.” But there is a key point. It states, “In more than 20 days, 109 opinions and suggestions from various regions and departments have gathered, and the document drafting team has compiled a summary of 753,000 words.”

Qin Peng: On the surface, this is nothing, but it shows that interest groups inside and outside the party and different factions are not to be left behind. They all want to express their views on the resolution, add their own content, and ensure the interests of their own factions.

Sydney: The report said that on April 9, Xi Jinping took charge of the document drafting team. A month later, a draft was formed, and the article referred to this period as “an important node in the preliminary formation of the document draft framework.” Then, Xi Jinping chaired the deliberations again, went through the Politburo Standing Committee and the Politburo, and then solicited opinions from inside and outside the party, especially within the party. He mentioned “seeking opinions from old comrades in the party”.

In the end, “more than 1,600 comments and suggestions, and 547 preliminary additions, rewritings, and simplifications in the draft resolution” were received. Qin Peng, this number is a bit scary, which shows that various factions inside and outside the party are very dissatisfied with the first draft written by Xi Jinping in his early days.

Qin Peng: Yes. This is an era when it is forbidden to arbitrarily discuss the central government. So many different opinions have been raised and 547 amendments have been made, which shows that there is a great deal of resistance. In particular, the so-called “old comrades” mentioned here should mainly refer to former Politburo Standing Committee members and others, representing the interests of Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, Hu Wen and other factions before Xi Jinping, and some representing the Maoists and the Red Second Generation. Obviously They have to fight for the interests of their respective political factions, so there are so many opinions.

Sydney: Well, even with such a document that has been discussed repeatedly by different factions, when the Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China was officially opened, it still caused a fierce battle. According to Xinhua News Agency’s own report, since the 8th, the Central Committee members and alternate members participating in the meeting were divided into 10 groups. “After two and a half days of full discussion, the comrades at the meeting put forward a total of 138 amendments. The document drafting team based on these opinions. , It is recommended that 22 revisions be made to the discussion draft.”

Qin Peng: With so many changes, obviously there was a quarrel. In this regard, the side note of the Sixth Plenary Session of the People’s Daily published 4 days ago also talked about the intense discussions among the high-level officials of the CCP. Associate Professor Feng Chongyi of the University of Technology Sydney analyzed that this actually means that a quarrel has occurred within the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.

Sydney: Yes, the People’s Daily reported that at the group meeting, “Everyone scrambled to speak first, and the atmosphere was warm. Sometimes, as soon as the voice of the comrades in the table fell, several comrades stood up to speak at the same time. After the meeting, everyone I still have a lot of thoughts, and I walked in twos and threes to discuss and exchange.” The actual controversy was expressed euphemistically, and this report was also unusually published as a headline on the 13th, two days after the conclusion of the Sixth Plenary Session.

Qin Peng: Another part of the report said, “How to properly handle the relationship between the new historical resolution and the previous two historical resolutions is a matter of great concern to the comrades participating in the meeting.”

Professor Feng Chongyi asked a question. What is arguing about is the current third resolution. What is the relationship with the second resolution? Engaging in this new agreement, the second resolution is still abided by or not?

Sydney: Feng Chongyi said that those high-level CCP people who attended the meeting are more cunning. They will not say that they oppose the resolution, nor dare to say that they do not support it. They will also vote for it, but said that you did not make it clear. This forced the drafting team to make explanations according to their ideas, and forced them to express their views.

He said that because the second resolution is against the cult of personality, it must be institutionalized, and even democratization (in the party) is written in it. That is, you have two terms, and the indicators are all there. what would you do? If you want to serve in twenty-five-day Dalian now, there will be no legitimacy, and you will be illegal. “That’s how to resolve such differences. How to make it round. How to make changes to the text, or find other opportunities to scare the other party, or how to publish the text.”

Qin Peng: Well, the argument was very fierce, so even after the meeting, the resolution text was still difficult to give birth for 5 days.

This is very interesting. The CCP’s party media actually exposed the internal struggles of the CCP’s top leaders. Judging from the final text, this at least shows: First, most people are afraid of returning to the Mao era, so they finally demanded the denial of the Cultural Revolution and the Great Leap Forward. Although in the end the blame was placed on Lin Biao and the Gang of Four; secondly, most people were unwilling to change the June 4th issue into riots, and they still used relatively weak terms like political turmoil to characterize them. Of course, the resolution deliberately reversed cause and effect, putting the CCP’s suppression of the student movement before the collapse of Eastern Europe and the Soviet communist regime, deliberately saying that “the Soviet Union collapsed in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and the drastic changes in Eastern Europe” came before the first. , To mislead readers.

Different factions of the Chinese Communist Party are afraid or unwilling to mention: the persecution of Falun Gong

This resolution does not mention Jiang Zemin’s greatest political legacy-the persecution of Falun Gong. This also shows that different factions of the CCP dare not or are unwilling to mention this, especially when the persecution has happened again by the CCP’s state organ harvesting organs. sin.

Sydney: After 20 years of clarifying the truth by Falun Gong practitioners, the international community has long known that the suppression is unjust and evil. Major countries in the world such as the US Congress and the European Union have passed many resolutions condemning the CCP’s suppression. , And condemned the CCP for organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners.

Qin Peng: Therefore, although the CCP is still persecuting Falun Gong secretly, it does not dare to publicize it on a large scale as before.

Sydney: For example, the NBA star Enes Kanter we mentioned last time, he just tweeted yesterday (16th), calling on the CCP to stop forced organ harvesting.

He wrote: “The Chinese government forced organ harvesting. Ethnic and religious groups, Tibetans, Uyghurs in concentration camps, Christians, and Falun Gong practitioners have all become targets. Liver, kidney, heart. Stop killing people for organs! This is against humanity. Crime. Now we will end the forced organ harvesting in China!”

He also posted a photo of sneakers with organ patterns and doctors performing operations with the words “Stop organ harvesting in China” (Stop organ harvesting in China).

Of course we know that it is not just forced harvesting, even live harvesting, but the English terminology is relatively lacking in such expressions.

Qin Peng: This NBA professional basketball star has always dared to say that for him, human rights are more important than money. He said before that the high-level team or the president of the league also encourages players to say whatever they want.

Sydney: Of course, during the previous administration of the United States, President Trump (Trump) and Secretary of State Pompeo respectively personally received Falun Gong practitioners who were persecuted by the CCP, including underground Christian churches, Tibetan Buddhism, and Uighurs who were persecuted by the CCP. The representative of religious beliefs, and the current US government, Secretary of State Blincoln also announced on May 13 sanctions against the “610” officials who persecuted Falun Gong.

Qin Peng: Yes. Therefore, returning to the text of the resolution of the Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, no matter whether the Jiang Zemin faction or other factions were to be suppressed, they felt that this was a ugly thing done by the Communist Party and did not dare to mention it in the resolution. Moreover, once mentioned, there is still a problem, that is, how to qualitative? This also shows that Xi Jinping, who led the drafting of the manuscript, is unwilling to carry the human rights gangster for Jiang Zemin, so he is unwilling to include this in the resolution.

Judging from the understatement of the CCP’s crimes during the Cultural Revolution and “June 4th” in the resolutions (all the credit is for the party, the problems are caused by individuals or some external forces), the CCP is unwilling to act against the crimes committed by the people. Any substantial confession. This also shows that it is an impossible fantasy to hope for self-improvement of this criminal group.

Merkel admits to being too naive to the CCP

Sydney: Let’s see today’s big news again. German Chancellor Merkel even admitted that she was cooperating with the CCP, which was naive at first. (Qin Peng live broadcast)

During her 16 years as prime minister, Merkel has always adhered to her pro-China policy, which has made China Germany’s largest trading partner, and has also affected Europe’s China policy. However, in recent years, European countries have begun to share a lot of dissatisfaction with China in terms of unfair competition and espionage activities. The current international and European general direction seems to have also influenced Germany.

On the 17th, Merkel reflected on her China policy in an exclusive interview with Reuters. She even admitted that Germany may be naive at first in some aspects of cooperation with China. Qin Peng, this is big news, and the hard and Communist faction has been shaken.

Qin Peng: This is a very rare statement. Moreover, Merkel also said: “These days we look more closely, and rightly so.” (These days we look more closely, and rightly so.) Germany has also felt a strong threat to its actions on issues such as the Great Plague, the Taiwan Strait, and the South China Sea.

In August this year, when a dozen countries including the United States, Britain, Japan, Canada, and Australia conducted joint military exercises near the South China Sea and the Taiwan Strait, and issued a strong warning to the CCP, Germany dispatched warships to the South China Sea for the first time in nearly 20 years. This shows that the German Merkel government has realized that the CCP is a threat to the world, including Germany.

Of course, there is also pressure from the German people behind this. In a survey conducted by the public opinion research agency Forsa by the Internationale Politik magazine in August this year, 75% of the German people believed that the federal government should be more tough on China. Position, and more actively defend their own interests. In fact, thinking that Merkel’s party is weak against the CCP is also an important reason why they lost the election. In this year’s German election, being tougher against the CCP has become the consensus of all parties.

Sydney: Yes, Germany is about to change term. Merkel has given up running for the election, which means she is about to leave. Many people criticize Germany for being too dependent on the CCP and therefore silent on the CCP’s human rights violations. Merkel’s government said that Merkel has always dealt with human rights issues during her official visits to Beijing, which has been no less than 12 times. However, in the joint statements of several European countries against the CCP in recent times, did you see Germany’s shadow?

Qin Peng: In fact, Germany and the CCP have reached a tacit understanding in the past few years, that is, Germany will raise questions during the talks between the two sides, and the CCP will give Germany some face from time to time, including releasing some political prisoners such as Liu Xiaobo’s wife to Germany. .

However, on the whole, Germany is still worried that public publicity will affect its own business, so it also wants to keep a distance from other Western countries.

Of course, Germany is not completely absent from collective actions in Europe. For example, we have seen that in March this year, the EU, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada imposed sanctions on the persecution of CCP’s Xinjiang concentration camps. In recent months, NATO has repeatedly stated that it treats the CCP as The threat is hidden behind the shadow of Germany. Confronting the CCP on national security and human rights issues is now a European consensus.

Sydney: But even though Merkel was shaken this time, she still said that Germany and the EU still have to continue to cooperate with China and learn from each other. She said, “It may be wrong to completely decouple, and it will cause us harm.” Qin Peng, what does this mean?

Qin Peng: This means that Germany and China will be partially decoupled. Germany may still have a choice when it comes to confronting the CCP. However, I think this is not necessarily the opinion of the new government, because Merkel’s government is now a caretaker government, and she is still expressing her opinions.

On the whole, Germany’s turn to be tough on the CCP is irreversible.

Europe and the United States strike against the CCP

Sydney: Germany influences Europe, and Europe also influences Germany. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence. As soon as Merkel’s interview came out, on the same day (17th), the United States, the European Union, and Japan issued a joint statement by the ministers of trade, announcing that they would re-sign the tripartite partnership covenant proposed during Trump’s period to jointly respond. The “non-market trade behavior of third countries” is tantamount to responding to the challenges posed by the “non-market” policies and practices of China and other countries. This is actually directed at the CCP.

Qin Peng: Yes, non-market trade behavior refers to the government’s leading intervention in the market and the economy. For example, a large number of government subsidized companies, using cheap transfers of land and loans to help state-owned companies seize the global market, forcing technology transfer, and sending a large number of companies. Spies and students steal intellectual property rights, coerce Chinese high-tech companies to steal information from governments and citizens of other countries, and use policies and other methods to cause structural distortions in the market, and so on.

We have seen that during the Trump era, the crackdown on “Made in China 2025” and the sanctions against the CCP in steel and aluminum products industries were because the CCP authorities subsidized relevant companies to participate in competition, which was unfair to private companies in other countries.

The tripartite talks between Europe, America and Japan were united after the failure of the WTO to allow the CCP to abide by the rules. In terms of their goals, they hope to establish new international rules through tripartite dialogue, restrict state-owned enterprises’ market-distorting behavior, resist harmful subsidies, and prevent forced technology transfer and theft of intellectual property rights. This sounds like it is aimed at the CCP.

Sydney: Moreover, this was announced after a meeting between Biden and Xi Jinping on Monday. US officials said that at the Xi Jinping meeting, Biden also raised his concerns about China’s “non-market economy” operation.

Qin Peng: Yes, as we said yesterday, the contradiction between the United States and the CCP is irreconcilable, and it will not be resolved just by shouting a few old friends or reaching some cooperation with trade afterwards.

In fact, the Japanese media reported today that at the same time as the visit, the US Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo (Gina Raimondo) who was visiting Asia also said in Japan on the 16th that the United States has no intention of participating in the comprehensive progress of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Agreement (CPTPP), but looking forward to cooperating with Japan to combat China’s excess capacity.

Sydney: The media also reported that the European Union is expected to propose a draft of the “Global Gateway Partnership Strategy” this week, which is the “Belt and Road” plan that it said to counter the Chinese Communist Party. It is estimated that more than 40 billion euros (approximately US$45.4 billion) will be invested in five major areas, including digital transformation, clean energy transformation, transportation, human-to-human connections, and trade and resilient supply chains.

Qin Peng: Of course, in comparison, Europe has been slower, but it has also encircled the CCP in many aspects or launched competition. This is also an international trend.
