    Xi’s control over China’s former leaders suggests his is China’s most powerful leader since Mao. September 30, 2015 marked a new beginning in Chinese politics — the start of a new era in Xi Jinping’s authority. On this day, the State Council hosted a dinner celebrating the 66th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China. In contrast to the past, when retired senior leaders were invited to join the current leaders to partake in the celebrative banquet, most of China’s previous leaders were absent this time. It is not that they were too old. Less than one month earlier,...

    China’s media censors began blocking Internet search terms Wednesday to try to tamp down speculation on the health of ailing former leader Jiang Zemin. On Thursday, the official news agency denied reports on his death as “pure rumor.” Speculation has been rife on microblogging sites that Jiang, 84, was dying or had died after he failed to appear Friday alongside other top leaders for ceremonies marking the 90th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party’s founding. Jiang has been rumored for years to be in ill health. On the most popular local Twitter-like microblogging site,, searches were blocked for terms...

    Is China's Ex-Leader Jiang Zemin Dead? Local Censors Don't Want Any Speculation Posted by Hannah Beech Wednesday, July 6, 2011 at 12:29 am Is he or isn't he? Around 11 pm on July 5, China's blogosphere began trading in rumors that Jiang Zemin, the former leader of the People's Republic, had died. By midnight local searches on this topic had become very popular. But within half an hour, the heavy hand of China's censors descended. Chinese language searches for words relating to death, even without being paired with Jiang's name, returned the Orwellian message: “According to relevant policies and laws,...

    Seoul Believes Kim Jong-il Failed to Meet Jiang Zemin Seoul has concluded that a planned meeting last month between North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and former Chinese president Jiang Zemin did indeed fail to materialize. Seoul has checked through various channels to find out whether the two met during Kim's visit to Jiang's hometown of Yangzhou but has found no evidence that they did. A senior South Korean government official said, "No intelligence network found signs of their meeting." Kim had traveled 3,000 km by armored train to Yangzhou and stayed there for three days. Seoul is trying to find...

    As the presidential candidates engage in furious pre-caucus spin, one of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's most prominent Iowa supporters said Wednesday that she's already accomplished what she needs to in Iowa, and can declare success even if she finishes in third place. Asked if the order of finish matters, Former governor Tom Vilsack, D-Iowa, deflected the question. "She absolutely had to be competitive and she's accomplished that," he said. "Obviously everybody's interested in winning, and I think we're going to do well. It's tight. There's no question about that." In May, Vilsack was quoted in the Washington Post, saying, "There's...

    The Politico ^ | January 1, 2008 | Ben Smith
    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was praised in the wake of the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto for demonstrating her command of the players and the issues at stake in Pakistan, even as another candidate, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, was criticized for stumbling over details. But in two confident television appearances, on CNN and ABC, Clinton made an elementary error about Pakistani politics: She described President Pervez Musharraf as a "candidate" who would be "on the ballot." In fact, Musharraf was reelected to the presidency in October. The upcoming elections are for parliament, and while Musharraf's party...

    The Politico notes that Bill Clinton has fallen back on Bubbalistic campaigning in Iowa. The homespun wisdom of the former Rhodes scholar comes along with his wife's various regional accents, but as Ben Smith notes, usually much farther away from the press: Before he was a silver-haired elder statesman, ex-president, and globe-trotting do-gooder, Bill Clinton was Bubba. And out in rural Western Iowa, Bubba is back. ... While his speech differed little from the one he gives in upscale audiences, his presence there indicates both the potential his wife’s campaign sees in the West and the fact that the former...

Although she takes in $165,200 a year as a senator, these days Bill is breadwinner-in-chief. His presidential pension is $201,000 a year, and he grabbed a $12 million advance for his...

Clinton did not receive the warmest of welcomes at the Heartland Form in Des Moines, IA, and although the hostage scare was mentioned, the announcer brushed it off quickly in order to get to questions. Clinton, who was forced to call in to speak to the crowd of thousands because of weather difficulties, took questions on topics from healthcare to illegal immigration. The senator was asked if she...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton trails five top Republican presidential contenders in general election match-ups, a drop in support from this summer, according to a poll released on Monday. Clinton's top Democratic rivals, Barack Obama and John Edwards, still lead Republicans in hypothetical match-ups ahead of the November 4, 2008, presidential election, the survey by Zogby Interactive showed. Clinton, a New York senator who has been at the top of the Democratic pack in national polls in the 2008 race, trails Republican candidates Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, John McCain and Mike Huckabee by three to five...

    China's Hu stronger, but no strongman Tue Jul 24, 2007 5:11AM EDT By Benjamin Kang Lim - Analysis BEIJING (Reuters) - Almost five years in power, Chinese President Hu Jintao has grown in strength but a failed attempt to retire the chief official bodyguard illustrates a behind-the-scenes struggle as he seeks to consolidate power. At 68, General You Xigui was past the compulsory retirement age, but long-time patron Jiang Zemin used his residual influence as the previous party chief to force Hu to keep You on as director of the Communist Party's Bodyguards Bureau. "Jiang lost his temper ... He...

    Clean Sweep In Shanghai Paul Maidment and Shu-Ching Jean Chen 09.25.06, 2:00 PM ET China's President Hu Jintao has been eradicating the influence of his predecessor Jiang Zemin since the day he took over the more powerful post of party leader in 2002. The sacking and arrest of Chen Lianggyu, the most senior Chinese Communist party in Shanghai, on corruption charges, and his suspension from the party's top leadership council, the Politburo, plunges the knife as deep as Hu has yet dared into the so-called Shanghai faction, the associates of Jiang, whose political patronage has cast a long shadow over...

    Americans were rightly outraged over the possibility of an Arab nation with ties to terrorists taking control of six major American ports. Protests from across the nation helped to squelch the deal. However, the job’s not finished. The Communist Chinese still control ports at Long Beach. Congressman Charlie Norwood, (R-GA) made a strong case for getting the Chinese out of the port of Long Beach when he noted that while Dubai has been a reliable partner for America in the War on Terror, Red Chinese officials have threatened invasion of America’s ally on Taiwan and nuclear war against the United...
