Both H7N9 and Ya’an Earthquake Challenge Xi and Li Leadership
With both President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang just
having been in office for a month,
the H7N9 bird flu and Ya’an earthquake have struck China
one after another.
One can’t help but ponder the outbreak of SARS when
Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao took the office in 2003.
The cover up of the SARS epidemic by the Communist regime
led to the worldwide spread of the disease.
How did Xi and Li react to the tests?
The following is our report.
With the earthquake in Ya’an, Sichuan, the Chinese Communists
including Xi and Li and relevant departments,
have reacted by following the same pattern
as their predecessors.
First, President Xi Jinping ordered rescue at all cost and
Premier Li Keqiang conducted efforts on the scene.
This was followed by the state media’s report praising
the People’s Liberation Army’s all out relief effort.
Political commentator Lan Shu doesn’t believe there is any
change in the Communist regime with Xi and Li’s leadership.
All matters will continue to be dealt with
in the same manner.
Political commentator Lan Shu: “The interests of the Chinese
Communist Party (CCP) lie above all, including the people and the constitution.
When both party and people are in conflict, the benefit of
the party rests above the people.
The party is also above the law."
Natural disasters and epidemics have been quite
frequent in China these years.
The matters seem to be getting worse during
the transition of power.
Many years ago when Hu and Wen had just taken office,
there was SARS.
During the 2nd five-year term in 2008,
the Wenchuan earthquake took place.
Netizens had predicted earlier: There will be similar disaster
during Xi and Li’s term.
It will be a major test from Gods for Xi and Li’s leadership.
Mr. Chen from China: “It is gods’ test of their political
wisdom and their morale.
I believe there will be lying, covering up and false reports,
just like it used to be. “
Back in the SARS epidemic in 2003, the Communist regime
deliberately concealed the facts：
Fan Boyuan, former vice mayor in Beijing:
“Not only do we have nothing to fear, there has been
no rioting, no panic, on the contrary,
in our countryside, people feel settled and peaceful."
Zhang Wenkang, former vice minister of National Healthcare:
“In China, the Chinese people including people in Guangdong,
their daily work and life are all normal.
Thus, to work, travel and holding meetings are safe."
The virus was then spread to Taiwan, Hong Kong and
around the world.
The international community condemned the
regime’s covering up.
Mainlanders also strongly opposed the regime’s
policy in the matter.
It is generally believed the H7N9 bird flu epidemic in China
is once again being concealed.
Laozi, the ancient Chinese philosopher, said,
“People are above the lord, followed by the state.”
Throughout the history of China, wise emperors have valued
the suffering, the mind, and the opinion of people as key to maintaining a stable nation.
Mr. Chen from China: “People’s will matters the most.
People can’t be bullied.
The regime has been deceiving people
for all these years.
Without a fundamental change,
the China dream will remain a dream.
People dare not speak the truth.
What else can people do?"
It is commented that the so-called iron country is only a
dream of those who indulge in their power.
For thousands of years, the rise and fall of many
Chinese dynasties have taken place like tides.
And power has flowed out and away carried
by the ebbing tides.
