War Drums From the East

If you can’t hear them, you aren’t listening.

The Chinese Communist Party has passed a “historical resolution”, cementing Xi Jinping’s status in political history.

The document, a summary of the party’s 100-year history, addresses its key achievements and future directions.


It is only the third of its kind since the founding of the party – the first was passed by Mao Zedong in 1945 and the second by Deng Xiaoping in 1981.


It was passed on Thursday at the sixth plenary session, one of China’s most important political meetings.


As only the third Chinese leader to have issued such a resolution, the move aims to establish Mr Xi as an equal to party founder Mao and his successor Deng.

Some observers see the resolution as Mr Xi’s latest attempt to turn back decades of decentralisation by Chinese leaders that began under Deng and continued through other leaders like Jiang Zemin – a sign that China might be moving back to a so-called cult of personality.

    Our own communist leadership must be green with envy.

    Yeah, and they can’t move to dismiss the two term limits until they have a person in power young enough to survive more than one term.

    And our treasonous leftist communists are dancing around the communist beat from Asia. Leftists are awful.
