Zeng Qinghong’s Rare Appearance Releases Important Signal
Former Chinese Vice President Zeng Qinghong recently visited
a private Art Gallery in Shanghai after no show for a while.
Why does he pick such a sensitive time to show that his family
and cronies all go wrong?
Let’s see the analysis.
According to Hong Kong media, May 14, former Communist
Party Politburo Standing Committee leader Zeng Qinghong visited the
Shanghai Jiading Han Tianheng Art Museum, accompanied by Shanghai
Party Secretary Han Zheng and Jiang Zemin’s son, Shanghai
University of Science and Technology president Jiang Mianheng
and took a group photo with mainland seal cutter Han Tianheng.
From the picture, you can tell Zeng Qinghong has become thinner and
older compared to pre-retirement.
It is said that reporting of Zeng Qinghong’s appearance
was totally banned
by the mainland media.
Recently, Zeng’s family, relatives, cronies have been investigated.
The niece of Zeng Qinghong, Guangzhou DisciplineCommission
Secretary Wang Xiaoling is reported in her real name. Zeng Qinghong’s
daughter Zeng Baobao and Zhou Yongkang’s son Zhou Bin’s business
dealings were exposed. Zeng’s crony, China Resources Company
chairman Song Lin was sacked. Zeng’s confidant Wang Gang
said in the background of Zhou Yongkang case was at large witness Liu Yingxia;
In addition, the chairman of State Grid Corporation of China Liu
Zhenya who swallowed up a 96% stake of Shandong Luneng Group
is alleged to have colluded with Zeng Qinghong’s son and was investigated.
Macau agency Liaison Office has also been included within the supervisory
scope of the Secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline
Inspection Wang Qishan.
Political commentator Lin Zixu: “Zeng Qinghong’s whereabouts
have very deliberately been kept a mystery after he retired.
He would not rashly show up if he didn’t have to.
However, he came out just as unfavorable rumors about him and
the Jiang faction were flying around
which further confirms lots of rumors,
and makes people feel the offenders are trying to consciously
prove their innocence."
US independent commentator Zhang Jian: Zeng Qinghong’s
appearance doesn’t mean he is safe.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is trying to calm down
some outside speculations on Zeng Qinghong and internally
Actually since the Cultural Revolution and the gang of Four
until now, all CCP officials were suddenly arrested, detained
and interrogated right after such high-profile methods.
Based on photos, the starved and aged looks
just reflected the big inner pressure."
According to the US Epoch Times exclusive news, the CCP
Central Commission for Discipline Inspection has set up
an internal investigation on Zeng Qinghong.
Jiang Zemin is still trying to persuade the former influential military
head and party elder statesman to petition with signatures and to
prevent Zeng Qinghong’s investigation by frequent appearances.
Linzi Xu: “A bigger surprise from Zeng Qinghong’s appearance
is that he was followed by Jiang Zemin’s son, which is hard to explain
from the point of formal personnel arrangement.
Because there is a big gap between Zeng Qinghong and Jiang Mianheng’s
positions, plus the Art Museum has no connection with Jiang
Mianheng whose major was in science.
So Jiang Mianheng’s appearance is probably deliberately arranged
by Zeng Qinghong which publicly announced he and Jiang Zemin
would strike in the end against current CCP leaders."
Political commentator Zhou Xiaohui posted on his blog that Zeng
Qinghong is performing the drama of refuting and challenging rumors.
The mystery is reflected in the place of his visit: Han Tianheng Art Gallery.
The article said the word Tianheng has three meanings, first is
the emperor’s authority, the second is the array name which
comes from one of Zhu Geliang’s Eight tactical deployments
of troops; the Third is heaven’s name.
Han Tianheng’s homonym means to shake the emperor’s
authority, indicating the Zeng Qinghong and Jiang faction will
fight with the Xi Jinping faction to the end."
Lin Zixu: “The anti-Chinese incident happened recently in
Li Keqiang went to Vietnam last year and promised to jointly
develop oil fields.
Why did China break the contract by developing the oil privately?
Didn’t it obviously slap his face?
It all means two central sayings are the truth.
The Jiang faction will try all means in the decline of the status quo.
Since that insidious person Zeng Qinghong who has been behind
for long time has shown up, a big storm is imminent."
May 1, Hong Kong Ta Kung Pao which is under Zeng
Qionghong’s control used two full pages to slander Falun Gong
and attack the Hong Kong Falun Dafa director Kan Hung-cheung.
Political Commentator Xia Xiaoqiang posted on his blog that this
is a reflection of the intense game among the CCP leadership which
yearly lurked in Hong Kong’s Zeng Qinghong force’s
crazy action before being defeated outright by Xi Jinping.
