BREAKING NEWS: Attempted Assassination of Xi Jinping Goes Awry

xi jinping assassination attempt

Late last week on Tuesday night, a vehicle carrying Xi Jinping, China’s next President in waiting, was rammed off the road in what many believe was an assassination attempt.

After the attack, Mr Xi was rushed to the hospital for his injuries.

In a separate incident on that same night, a powerful member of the Xi Jinping crew – the Central Discipline Commissioner ‘He Quoqiang’ was also involved in a similar assassination attempt. His vehicle was similarly attacked and he too suffered injuries.

In fear that a violent revolution is in the making, Beijing has reinforced their troop strength in the capital city and all major garrisons. They have called for more police and military personnel at key locations to stave off an attempt at overthrowing the communist party.

The two attacks are seen as an attempt at removing Beijing’s power players so that fallen leader Bo Xilai can regain his power.

Earlier this year there was an attempted coup that Beijing covered up. Governmental officials, however, have leaked information that there were in fact problems between the Bo Xilai contingent and other groups.

Apparently, Mr Bo was unhappy with the position that the Communist party had decided to give him in the upcoming leadership changeover. Rumor has it that members of Bo’s clan waged a mini battle with those of one of the other communist party factions.

Since that time, Bo has been excoriated in the press and is being held at an undisclosed location.

Bo Has Juice

Typically, when a member of the Communist party becomes too big, they are either jailed or ‘disappeared’, perhaps sent off on an airplane with an insufficient amount of fuel to arrive at its destination.

The Communists are above the law, and dislike any airing their dirty laundry. They punish cadres who do not walk the line with imprisonment or death.

But Bo has juice.

Bo Xilai is not just any ordinary Communist leader. Even though Beijing is said to have proved that he was responsible for the death of at least 11 people, Bo is still a favorite with the masses.

Not only is Bo a charismatic leader, but he is eloquent as well. In fact, he has even been compared to Chairman Mao himself. Never one to miss an opportunity, Bo played up his love of all things ‘red’ as he moved into Chongqing – his last post.

Not only did he clear the city of institutionalized corruption, but brought back Mao’ist policies as well. He mandated public parades and marches extolling the virtues of Mao and Communism, and even demanded that patients in mental wards sing revolutionary hymns.

Bo also played on the despair of the commoner, who feels more disconnected with the people in Beijing than ever before.

Bo promised more state control, less foreign interference and a better life for those now struggling to buy homes and food in China. In other words, he was the antithesis of men like Hu Jintao, Xi Jinping and to a certain extent Wen Jiabao, all of whom seek to protect financial self interests as the masses go hungry.

Bo’s Rise to Power

Bo has deep Communist connections as well. Bo’s Communist cred is blood deep, as his father is one of China’s ‘Immortals’, which as the name suggests, are men who are seen as gods.

His father warred alongside Mao, was persecuted by the man and then reclaimed his spot among the communist political hall of fame. Men like Bo benefit from their bloodlines, and favors were still being called in to ensure that Bo was put into position to be one of China’s top leaders.

But Bo did not just want any old position, he wanted the top spot. Unfortunately for him he was too good for his own good. To a certain extent he out-shined the Communist party itself.

The party then sought to ‘clip Bo’s wings’. Their fear was that he would lead the Communists into another cultural revolution. Beijing’s top brass fears that most of all, as most of them are millionaires and or billionaires (ironically enough just as Bo Xilai was).

Thus, a call to the Mao’ist days of reform was not a thing they were quick to embrace. All of the money they had extorted and stolen would be taken from overseas bank accounts and the Communist leaders would be punished.

Bo Taken Out of the Equation

With memories of how brutal the last revolution was – images of beaten Communist leaders being dragged through the streets and spat upon flashed before their minds – something had to be done.

Bo had to be taken out or he would disrupt the gravy train. The question was how to proceed. Bo had tapped the phone lines of Hu Jintao and other key staffers. A guy like that is hard to ‘take out’.

For one thing, he had too many minions looking out for him and was well connected. He also had the military leaders of the Chengdu garrison in his pocket, as well as many others. These men he’d groomed by himself or his father had done so before passing away.

Beijing knew they had to be careful with Bo.

What they did was expose Bo’s corrupt acts and his alleged homicides in an attempt at publicly discrediting Bo and sending him off to a prison somewhere. Beijing thought that once the ‘facts’ came out that China would back them and Bo could be put out to pasture, but this did not happen.

What Beijing did not understand was how much the common man connected with Bo and how out of touch the communist party is with the interests of the keystone of their society, the poor and lower income earners.

Bo’s Populist Support

Bo had followed the rule of Mao and had cultivated loyalty from that huge segment of China that represents over 80% of society, the poor.

The communists had slipped just as the KMT before them. They had neglected that huge group of people who historically have brought regime change to China.

Bo was charged with disciplinary action for offenses against the Communist party, but will only stand trial before Communist courts and not the real “courts of Chinese law (1)”. Due to the high profile nature of Bo and the crimes he is being held for, the Communist party can do little.

If they choose to punish him for corruption, he merely needed to finger men like the son of President Hu Jintao and even the family of Xi Jinping for their allegedly shady business dealings. By doing so, Bo would expose the depth and level of corruption within the upper echelons of the communist party, which would also lead to disaster and revolt.

Bo is being held, but he cannot be taken out. To do so would surely cause mass riots and a revolution. Beijing is now in a Catch-22, they cannot kill Bo, but they probably cannot peacefully cohabitate with him as well.
The assassination attempt shows that as long as Bo is alive he will be a thorn in the side of the party.

Although the assassination attempt is being credited as coming from members of the Bo’ist camp, it shows the level of angst that the common Chinese have against the current regime in Beijing.

Inflation is on the rise, the economy is on the decline and unemployment is creeping up. Aside from this riots2 across the countries are more numerous and larger. China’s gini coefficient is in danger zone and when people do not have enough food to eat, they get desperate.

Increasing Dissent in China

People do not see the ruling Communist party as supporting them and are demanding change. Things have gotten so bad that there are rumors that the leadership handover may have to be postponed, and at the moment there is no clear date set for that event.

This time, it may have been the Bo Xilai crew who attempted the assassination, but this is merely an indication of a nation in trouble.
Things have gotten so bad in China that this is merely a sign of things to come. Many foreign businessmen and investors are leaving China due to the political uncertainty and rising costs which merely exacerbates the situation.

As more companies leave and export orders fall there will be fewer jobs and more strife. With the droughts in the west and increasing food costs there will even be less money to around. The commoner knows this.

The commoner also knows that over half of the most powerful leaders in Beijing have sent their children abroad to study when they the masses do not have enough money to buy one square meter of prime Beijing property which goes for upwards of $12,000.

They know too that the watches draped across the wrists of Communist officials can go for as much as $240,000, yet the annual income of those officials is less than U$14,000 per year.

It is easy to do the math and see that a man like Xi Jinping has been able to afford hundreds of thousands of dollars on a Harvard tuition for his daughter, yet his annual salary in the past year was merely $20,000 and this was a big jump from the pittance he made just eight years ago.
As for his wife, she was a singer for the military, not the type of job upon which fortunes are built.

As the Chinese see the disparity in income and wealth growing they will force a change upon Beijing. The attempted assassination is only the beginning.

Few outsiders are privvy to what traanspoires in such ‘court rooms’. When these trials are over, the communist may be tried in a civil court of law, but the legal veridict will have been made before the trial even starts.

    Oh wow, you are using the Tablian tactic here, Mr. Patriot. Since you couldn’t face my firepower of reason on another article, you’ve decided to snipe around like a guerrilla fighter. Fair enough, bring it on!

    By the way, did you check out the new McDonald Dollar Menu? Fuck… you might have to migrate to a new establishment.

  • No idea what a “Tablian” is…did you mess up your Chinese-to-English spelling translation?

  • Me

    I suggest ignoring all comments from this person. It is a waste of time to devout energy to someone who adds no value to the boards. They can post China’s Weibo instead.

  • Me

    If you have nothing extra to add stay off rhe boards. Your actions are typical of Chinese 50 cent posters.

    The bottom line is that the communists refuse to tell their people the truth. There is a rumor that she has a bullet in his gut. Others say paralysis and others that he had a heart attack.

    Put your energy towards chnging your government and holding them accountable orgrow up.

    I would IP ban this guy if he has nothing of value to say. Or dekete his comments.
    If you want to run with the big dogs then man up and bring some firepower. The readers of TSW deserve better.

  • Agreed. However, one of our most important principles is that of freedom of speech and freedom of information. That is what we fight so hard for here at TSW. However, we don’t allow abuse and bullying – and Mr. “Bridgebuilder78” there decided to post a comment earlier today with the f-word directed at the owner of this site. So, because of that abuse, he has been IP-banned permanently.

  • Me

    Good point about freedom of speech. You are probably correct.

  • Jim Liu

    As a Chinese American, I found this writer’s story lacks any credibility. It seems to me that the writer try to fit evidence into his theory instead of finding out what’s going on in China.

    “In fear that a violent revolution is in the making, Beijing has reinforced their troop strength in the capital city and all major garrisons. ”

    As right now, protesting against Japanese is big story in China. If there is additional security measure, it is against out of control protest against Japanese.

    Too much commentary and speculation but lack any evidence to backup.

  • Jim Liu

    Ryan, as a mod, you have extra power on this website and you should use the power with care.

    You shouldn’t name calling any poster as 50 cent Army. It dissuades discussion and make your site unprofessional.

  • Thanks Jim – however we’ve been having problems with this particular person for a long time. They were exposed on prior posts as a disinformation-artist very active on many other news-media sites on the Internet. Since it was only the truth, it wasn’t really name-calling. With that said, you have a very good point and I will work on keeping my approach professional at all times. Thanks for the feedback.

  • Wait – you’re trying to claim that the protests being staged by the Chinese people are against the Japanese and nothing to do with the Communist leadership and corruption?

  • Jim Liu

    “protests being staged by the Chinese people are against the Japanese ”

    Those are real protests by real Chinese people against Japanese after Japanese nationalize the disputed island several days ago. Similar protests happened in free Hong Kong and Taiwan.

    If you don’t believe me, go search on the web. In city of Qingdao, a Toyota dealer was set on fire and several Japanese businesses were destroyed. In Beijing, protesters threw eggs at Japanese embassy. Several soccer games were cancelled due to anti-Japanese protest.

    If you read newspaper, there is another island disputed between Korea and Japan. There is quite a bit protest against Japan in South Korea. Of course, Japanese nationalist also have own protest in Japan against both Korean and Chinese.

  • In China

    What does your ethnicity have to do with a story being credible?

    The troop build up in Beijing and key areas is a fact. You can google it on xinhuanet or the People’s Daily. I can redommend a website which shows 40 troops entering a mall area in Beijing if you would like to see it.

    It is scary how ignorant Americans are about the reality of China.

    Fyi, an assassination attempt means it was unsuccessful. This means that Xi did not die, which means that he would eventually appear in public.

  • In china

    I disagree. Take a look at the 50 cent posters on the wsj. They deserve the same respect that they give, which is none. Their goal is to sidetrack useful and germane discussion.

    It’s Ryan’s site, I say he runs it as he wishes. Such comments never occurred until the Chinese 50 cent posters invaded his site.

  • Susan Shirk

    Ryan, you are both correct. Susan Shirk wrote a book called China, Fragile Superpower. In this book she described that Chinese are not allowed to freely protest, as the Tianenman massacre proved. She also contends that the communist party does allow some forms of protest if they stoke nationalism. But oftentimes the Chinese use these protests as a proxy for channeling anti-communist sentiments in

    Thus, the current protests are abetted by the communists. Ms. Shirk stated that when they do protest they are actually releasing pent up anger they have towards the communists.

    This means that the protests have an element of animosity towards the communist party, its oppression and corruption as well as anger towards the Japanese, which Chinese education has fomented.

  • Yes of course, that makes sense. It’s the sort of manufacturing of an “external threat” that George Orwell described in 1984: “For as long as Winston can recall, Oceania has been in a constant state of war – with whom it was at war is of neither importance nor consequence.”

  • Jim Liu

    I call this faulty logic. Once again, try to find facts to fitting the theory instead of finding the reason.

    There are large protests in Kong Kong and California against Japanese. In Kong Kong, it is same Democrats who protest against Chinese Patriotic education a week ago. Do you think those Kong Konger also tried to prop up CCP.

  • Jim Liu

    Again I disagree with you.

    Sure, there are 50 centers out there, but it is a myth that they will spend time on WSJ site. Most posters who write pro china comments are either Chinese student in US or individual Chinese.

    Too often people label others 50 cent just because they don’t agree with their point of view. Too often people use naming call to stop others from other joining discussion.

  • Jim Liu

    Sorry, I just don’t believe you. Your story has way too many holes.

  • Rick Meyers

    Jim, I have to agree with ‘in China’ that your race has nothing to do with this. I am German American but this fact gives me no cred in giving useful opinions about German politics. If you had credible facts that would be different.
