Xi Jinping Lied to by 100 Officials amidst "Dragon Vein" Fights; China Threatens To Ban iPhone

Play
Read more

A leaked internal Chinese government inspection report shows that Party leader Xi Jinping was lied to by close to 100 officials in his orders to destroy illegal villas in the Qinling Mountains in Shaanxi, which are known as the “dragon vein”.

Officials in Shaanxi Province built many luxury villas on the mountains over the past decade, and Xi has given instructions on multiple occasions to have these villas demolished, yet his orders were repeatedly ignored. Then in 2018, Xi sent Xu Lingyi, Deputy Secretary of the Central Commission on Disciplinary Inspection, to the province to carry out investigations. This led to the demolition of the illegal villas, and the purge of several officials.

The 20,000-word document obtained by The Epoch Times details the internal reports on the incident from the Xi'an Qinling Office. And it shows that despite all the actions, Xi is still being deceived by local officials across all levels of the government.

Whistleblower On China's NGO Faces Serious Threats; Generals Pushback On Xi Jinping; 4th Wave Formed

Play
Read more

A whistleblower in a Chinese Red Cross scandal has issued a call for help. Jiang Pengyong exposed how the Chinese Red Cross has been reselling virus protective gear that it receives through donations. Jiang said in an interview that he had previously decided to do business with the Chinese Red Cross, and since exposing its crimes he has received death threats, and has been threatened with jail time.

Meanwhile, Xi Jinping’s “wolf warrior” diplomacy is getting pushback from hard-liners in the Party leadership, who believe it’s more effective for the regime to use a strategy from former Party leader Deng Xiaoping to “hide our capability and bide our time.”

Among Xi’s two main critics are two PLA hawks, including retired Major General Qiao Liang, author of “Unrestricted Warfare”, which proposed a form of unconventional war to dominate other countries by weaponizing open systems including in culture, economy, and ideology.

China’s Domestic Security Under Xi Jinping – Sheena Chestnut Greitens

Play
Read more

One of the hallmarks of Xi Jinping’s tenure as China’s leader, since 2012, has been the notable strengthening of the state’s coercive architecture, through which it endeavors to control Chinese society.  In particular, Xi Jinping’s administration has substantially restructured the legal and institutional frameworks underpinning China’s domestic security, while also tightening central discipline over security personnel, and pioneering new technology-based methods for surveillance and social control.  In this episode, Neysun Mahboubi discusses with Sheena Chestnut Greitens, a leading expert on the politics of domestic security in Asian countries, how ideas about domestic security have developed in China under CCP rule, what are the institutions that embody them, and where the future may lead for China’s internal security–a discussion made all the more relevant today, when the Chinese state appears to be making use of the COVID-19 crisis to push its methods of social control even further afield.  The episode was recorded on May 3, 2019.

In August 2020, Sheena Chestnut Greitens will become an associate professor at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas, Austin, where she will also serve as a Faculty Fellow with the Clements Center for National Security, and a Distinguished Scholar at the Robert Strauss Center for International Security and Law.  Her work focuses on East Asia, authoritarian politics, and American national security policy.  She is also a non-resident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, an adjunct fellow with the Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and a member of the Digital Freedom Forum at the Center for a New American Security.  From 2015 to 2020, Greitens was an assistant professor of political science at the University of Missouri, and co-director of the University's Institute for Korean Studies.  Her first book, Dictators and their Secret Police: Coercive Institutions and State Violence(Cambridge, 2016) received the 2017 Best Book Award from both the International Studies Association and the Comparative Democratization Section of the American Political Science Association.  She is currently working on two main research projects: one on China's internal security policies and their implications for China in the world, and another on authoritarian diasporas, particularly focused on North Korea.  She is active on Twitter, where you can follow her @SheenaGreitens

Elizabeth Economy, "The Third Revolution: Xi Jinping and the New Chinese State" (Oxford UP, 2018)

Play

A trade war with China has dangerous implications for the global economy. What began more than a year ago with President Trump’s decision to impose tariffs has become an unpleasant economic reality for many businesses.

Recently, the U.S. labeled China a “currency manipulator.” But an even larger long-term threat comes from China’s aggressive espionage offensive that is playing out in behind-the-scenes as of the U.S. and China struggle for global dominance.

Our guest is Elizabeth Economy, a senior fellow and director of Asia studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. Her most recent book, The Third Revolution: Xi Jinpeng and the New Chinese State (Oxford University Press, 2018), explains the background to recent dramatic changes inside China.

She is among a distinguished group of China specialists who once favored engagement with Beijing, but are now calling for the United States to take a more forceful approach as China attempts to undermine democratic values. We discuss the best ways to navigate this relationship.

"Managing this relationship is essential," says Elizabeth. "It cannot allowed to it to spiral down too far."

Richard Davies and Jim Meigs are the host of the terrific podcast “How Do We Fix It?,” on which they talk to the world’s most creative thinkers about, well, how to fix things. Lots of things. Important ones. Highly recommended. You can find “How Do We Fix It” on Apple Podcasts.
