FTA- Vice Public Security Minister Sun Lijun was given a suspended death sentence with no possibility of parole

What does' suspended death sentence' mean? mean? Death by hanging"

I really love how we have no idea if any of this is true or not because of a lack of freedom of information.  Good job China.

Xi, you fool, Goldblum can stick to a wall like a fly!

He probably just has butt problems like the North Korean guy did

China's gonna be in deep shiat when he dies since he keeps killing basically anyone else capable of running the country smoothly

I think it means that he was let go on the condition that if he steps even a little bit out of line again he'll be hauled in front of a firing squad.

Big if true. I wonder if the Evergrande situation was the final straw?

2037: China's in the 15th year of their "Zero Covid policy" which includes hourly, mobile phone check-ins with health officials where citizen's internet activity data is uploaded to the CCP central server.  This process can take up to 45 minutes.

Also, while it does seem something temporarily may be going on in China, re: house arrest for Xi?

90% more likely a "coup attempt" manufactured or not

China is already in deep shiat. For various money related reasons, they had been counting tens of millions of people who didnt actually exist. Most of them are in the child to young adult range (0-30) and they are about to have the same issue japan has: far too many old people and not enough young people to take their place. The only difference is china is pretending  everything is fine so it will completely destroy parts of the country when the old people start to retire

If Xi were really sick or under house arrest, the State controlled Chinese media would be censoring any internet post about it. This rumor is probably allowed to proliferate to gauge and collect reactions.

But this does make me wonder what the real story might be.

No way this story gets anywhere if Xi has any say about it.  Strongmen really don't like it when people start speculating about what will happen when they're gone.

Works for North Korea. They probably get a kick watching everyone acting like gossipy highschool children in the West while they do what they do.

It sounds to me like the blatantly corrupt wing of the party doesn't like being cracked down on and is seizing control from the discretely corrupt wing.  The only question is, is the blatantly corrupt wing more or less inclined towards seizing The ROC and economic hegemony?

Beyond that even, a suspended death sentence is "We're not killing you right this minute, but any time we want to we will because fark you that's why."  They don't need any stepping, or even a reason

rather, it's his own wing that may be questioning Winnie's actions and could push for a change.  or it's nothing.  who knows.  maybe he got the  Covid.  I've not ever seen him wear a mask.  was he even Vaxxed?  Boosted?  What was his ESG score?  maybe it dipped to low.

It's hard to tell "increased security measures" from "house arrest". There's a non zero amount of unrest. I see one problem coming from his "three red lines" approach to financial regulations. I don't remember the details, but they were things that would have stopped collapses if implemented 20 years ago. Applied to companies recently, and they had no way to comply because they had veered off the path ten years ago and can't get back in line, with or without ruin.

The airport stuff is like other extra covid lockdowns.  If he got exposed, his lockdown would look very much like house arrest and the media wouldn't be talking either.

Doesn't seem to be happening so far. A lot of what they do is pure evil, but they actually plan for the long term and carry out their plans from colonizing Africa to implementing control through Social Credit.

I followed a bunch of this on twitter yesterday, and it all seemed to be from Indian sources, just their wishful thinking. Or Indian troll farms.

Someone told me that he knows the family of a #CCP admiral, the rumor about Xi's arrest is not true. I'll talk about what is happening in China tonight, titled: "Is Xi Under Arrest After Military Coup? 3 Senior Anti-Xi Officials Sentenced to Death".

and now gives this 26 minute rundown of all the current rumors

Is Xi Jinping Under Arrest After Military Coup? Three Senior Anti-Xi Officials Sentenced to Death
122,171 views
Streamed live on Sep 23, 2022 Today I will talk about three topics: a CCP's new document that gives Xi Jinping another green light and almost unlimited power with the CCP, a leaked internal speech by Xi Jinping, which allows us to have a rare glimpse of what's really inside his mind, and one of the predictions about the new CCP leadership at the upcoming 20th National Congress, who will be in, and who will be out, etc. So make sure you stick around till the end.


It all sounds like conspiracy theories but with China's strictly controlled media all the real news comes from reading between the lines.

He is very much against the Dentist Policies on opening up markets, private ownership ( outside the party)

Hu Jintao was for them ( but being a member increased your success rates in capital gains)

It's a fight between the generationns again, the Princes of the party who are 'trie believers' in Maoism and their following vs those who follow Deng Xiaoping thought that Communism is in an ever evolutionary process
