Plan XII. “Victory or Death?”
We Are at a Crossroad
“The divine aims at saving humans, while the specter of communism aims at destroying humans. This moment of history is extremely intense because it relates to the survival of civilization and the destiny of humankind. At this moment, the crisis and hope coexist, but humans living in ‘bewilderment’ have a difficult time seeing through (the specter of communism) at one glance.”
– From “The Ultimate Goal of Communism”
In December 1776, George Washington and his troops fighting for American Independence faced a dire and, seemingly losing crisis. Washington repeatedly wrote “Victory or Death” on small pieces of paper. On December 31, 1776, many of Washington’s soldiers faced their enlistments expiring the next day. To convince his exhausted soldiers to stay for one more month, Washington gave his famous speech: “My brave fellows, you have done all I asked you to do, and more than could be reasonably expected. However, your country is at stake, your wives, your houses, all that you hold dear…If you will consent to stay but one month longer, you will render that service to the cause of liberty and to your country, which you probably can never do under any other circumstances.”
Are we not now facing a similar crisis that will decide our destiny? 244 years later, we are, in fact, facing a crisis that will decide our density. Both internally and externally, unprecedented chaos generated by the specter of communism has thrown us at a crossroad: “Victory or Death, there is no room for a middle ground.
On June 30, the National People’s Congress of China unanimously passed the National Security Bill on Hong Kong. In contrast to weeks of secret drafting in Beijing that even kept the Chief Executive of Hong Kong in the dark, the voting process took only fifteen minutes. The swift approval of the law signaled the urgency of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to crack down on any opposition to Beijing both at home and abroad and at whatever cost. Some view this Bill as CCP’s declaration of war against the free world.
CCP’s Plan to Hollow out Hong Kong
The protests in 2019 sunk the legitimacy of Carrie Lam’s administration to rock bottom. The CCP had nothing to lose, nor anything to hide. To quash the protests, the CCP announced a plan to hollow out Hong Kong, meaning to keep the city but not a city composed of pro-democracy citizens.
The plan, if it succeeds, would not only silence the dissidents but also undo the recent election result of the legislative council that still shocks Beijing. It would allow the CCP to implement a complete takeover of the city by sending millions of pro-governments, pro-communist Chinese mainlanders to Hong Kong. The City, once called Oriental Pearl, would become a shell city, or a city no different from any other major city in China. The massive immigration to Hong Kong will also alleviate the CCP’s growing pain of resource constraints that caused previous policy failures in the environment, agriculture, population control, and anti-corruption.
This should send a warning to the countries that are actively working to offer people of Hong Kong a path to residency or citizenship. Providing a safe haven to dissidents from Hong Kong is a compassionate act. However, the west must stay alert to the fact that the CCP’s spies and pro-CCP people would take great advantage of such immigration acts. After the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre, many Western countries granted permanent resident status to hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationals. Over the last 31 years, how many of those truly see through the evil nature of Communism? How many of them have served as a “patriotic” base for the CCP to implement its infiltration strategy overseas? The free world should help Hong Kong in more than just a humanitarian way.
The Unconventional Pick
On Friday, July 3, Beijing appointed Zheng Yanxiong as director of the new national security agency in Hong Kong. Zheng, 56, most recently served as secretary-general of the Communist Party Committee of Guangdong province. The appointment even surprised the insiders. It was widely speculated that a senior officer from the law enforcement or intelligence apparatus would reign over the all-powerful agency that pursues enforcement actions way beyond any pre-existing laws in Hong Kong.
Zheng, often referred by many as ‘the unscrupulous officer’, became known for his crackdown on Wukan village protest in 2011 that led to one death and five imprisonments of the villagers. When Zheng accused the protestors of ‘colluding’ with the oversea media to attack the local government who sold the farmlands to real estate developers, he commented, “if oversea media can be trusted, you can expect a sow on the tree”. The ‘sow analogy’ quickly caught Beijing’s attention.
The appointment of Zheng signals the CCP’s determination to crush the freedoms of Hong Kong with the aid of someone who has a record of “accomplishment” in cruelly stabilizing large incidents. It could also be Beijing’s strategy to avoid the U.S. sanctions by placing a scapegoat in that prominent position instead of a core member from Xi’s cabinet.
The Looming Danger
On July 1, despite the newly effective security law, over 380,000 brave people in Hong Kong protested in open defiance of the evil regime. About 370 people were arrested. Among them, four distribution staffers from the Hong Kong branch of The Epoch Times.
While the Epoch Times has been a thorn in CCP’s side for years, other pro-democracy media in Hong Kong also faced increasing dangers. Jimmy Lai, the owner of Apple Daily, was arrested earlier this year and faces two charges of illegal assembly and intimidation. At the same time, books written by prominent democracy activists start to disappear from the city’s libraries. Pro-democracy media subscribers start to fear the revealing of their personal identities. Hong Kong is entering a dark stage of ‘White Terror’.
Freedom of expression, freedom of the press, and freedom of publication is the cornerstone of the success of Hong Kong. It is also the CCP’s biggest fear.
CCP’s Mounting Internal Struggle
Xi’s stance on Hong Kong attests that he is not another Gorbachev. Instead, Xi seems to be rather determined to bundle himself with the CCP. To anyone who counts on Xi to dissolve the CCP from within, the dream perhaps is shattered. Inside the CCP, the life-or-death power struggle between Xi and Jiang Zemin/Zeng Qinghong continues to elevate. Recently, a massive military/ police force has been patrolling the center of Beijing.
In the summer of 1989, Jiang Zemin’s bloody execution of Tiananmen massacre gained him a rocket-style lift to the national head of the CCP. Immediately after, Jiang promoted his long-time strategist Zeng Qinghong to be his aid in the central government. Zeng’s dad was the head of the Department of Interior – CCP’s KGB. Zeng undoubtedly inherited his father’s DNA. Since 1989, Zeng is the primary force behind the CCP’s organization and personnel. The two managed to place their “Shanghai clique” to almost every leading central, regional, and military posts. Jiang and Zeng, two heads of CCP deep state have firm grips on CCP’s military, intelligence, propaganda, diplomacy, telecommunication, finance, stock market, bio-weapon, biotech, pharmaceutical, and many other fields. Zeng has the ultimate control over Hong Kong.
Why do Jiang (now 94) and Zeng (now 81) still desperately cling to power? It is because both understand well if they release any of their power that they will be brought to justice. Besides the bloody crimes committed on Tiananmen Square, Jiang and Zeng have directed the most horrifying genocide in human history – the 21-year-long persecution of Falun Gong. Massive organ harvesting from mass Falun Gong practitioners is “an evil crime never seen on this planet before”. Today, 8 years after Xi took power, the ruthless persecution continues. Xi dissolved CCP’s labor camps in 2013, where the majority of prisoners were innocent Falun Gong practitioners. However, to Jiang and Zeng, ending the persecution of Falun Gong or ending the CCP means ending their lives.
CCP’s Deceptive Tactics
To cover up their crimes, Jiang and Zeng have been tightly controlling the CCP’s propaganda machine in and out of China. Wang Hu’ning, Xi’s chief propagandist, is an ally of Jiang and Zeng. To deceive people outside of China, Jiang, and Zeng dispatched orders to their agents to bribe overseas media with mass investments. This explains why so many media narratives in the free world today shockingly resemble those of the CCP and participates in the fake news narrative worldwide.
Jiang and Zeng also deceive Xi. Insiders reveal that Xi has been given fake updates and fake news by Jiang and Zeng, and Xi’s own order could not be implemented because of Jiang and Zeng’s blockage. In April 2020, Xi finally started investigating Sun Lijun, the CCP Deputy Minister of Public Security, into the investigation. Sun, an ally of Jiang and Zeng, carried out the bloody suppression of Hong Kong protestors last year. Insiders disclose that it took Xi sometimes to eventually realize what the truth was in Hong Kong. The CCP has been behind much of the fake news.
Predictions from Chinese Prophecies
The CCP faces a dire crisis but the propaganda machine will not tell you. First, the number of infected/casualties from the pandemic far exceeded the reported number. Now Beijing is facing a possible second wave of the pandemic. Since June, over 20 provinces have suffered severe flooding, and some reported to be the worst in 80 years. On July 7, Beijing authorities warned of more floods in the coming months.
Traditional Chinese believe that human history is a pre-arranged drama. Some enlightened sages left behind intriguing prophecies. One of them was “Taibai Mountain Monument Inscription” by Liu Bowen (1311-1375), a renowned sage from the Ming Dynasty. His prophecy accurately predicted the current situation and events.
The prophecy foretells that a catastrophe (pandemic) would start around November 2019 from Hubei (of which Wuhan is the provincial capital). As a result, many people will die, and the rich will be hit harder than ordinary people. In China, the rich are the high-level CCP leaders and members. In addition, the worst time of the catastrophe (pandemic and other disasters) is around July 13 (Chinese Luna date), which is Sept. 1, 2020. The prophecy foretells various disasters will fill the year of 2020 and those who could survive the Year of Rat (Jan 25, 2020 – Feb. 21, 2021) would be truly lucky.
Let Truth Set People Free
Deceived by the CCP’s propaganda, most mainland Chinese do not know what is truly happening in Hong Kong. Neither do many Chinese living in America do not know. They wrongfully think that these Hong Kong “rioters” are “anti-China” thugs; hence, the CCP must suppress them with an iron fist. At this crossroad of victory or death, the free world is called upon to stand up with courage and determination to reject, expose, and defeat tyrannical communism. Let truth set people free. Let the spirit of Hong Kong continue to awaken and inspire the “bewildered”.
On June 30, a petition titled “Wipeout Communism and Teardown China’s Great Firewall” was initiated on Change.org. The petition reads:
Mr. President, today, China becomes a more powerful evil empire and we are in a new “struggle between right and wrong and good and evil”. It is your chance and duty to launch a war against this empire to wipe out Communism by law.
Mr. President, today, it is your chance and duty to point to China’s Great Firewall and echo the voice of Chinese people: tear down this Firewall!
In 2001, Jiang Zemin ordered that the Great Internet Firewall be built on the internet to cover up his crimes. Hence, the CCP itself is not going to tear down the wall if Jiang is in control. Only when the people in China and free world become empowered by the truth, awakened to the evil specter of communism, and break away from the CCP, the world will witness the end of the CCP.
