The Nightmare of Jinping.
Is China's Jinping insecure and paranoid?

China’s fearless leader, Xi Jinping is throwing elbows and rattling his saber over anything that will get him attention in the international news. It goes in a never-ending circle of threats of seizing Taiwan, attacking Japan, Australia, the Philippines, England, and of course the United States. China screams that Taiwan is a province of China; nope it is a separate country that was set up on the Island of Formosa. The Nationalist Chinese of the Republic of China escaped to Formosa from China when the Communist Chinese took over in 1949. The Communist Party of China is scared that a free society in Taiwan, like the free society that used to be in Hong Kong, might catch on with the people of China.
China has made threats for years, usually creating big yawns from most people, but this time it's different. There is a great deal of concern regarding the leadership and staff of the Biden Administration. Corrupt deals and conflicts of interest with China keep bubbling to the surface. The Biden family’s dirty dealing with China is well known, the question is whether he or his staff are functioning as agents for China.
This has many allies of the United States very nervous about China’s behavior, toward Taiwan and making threats toward any country that criticizes China. China’s leader Xi Jinping, who is well known for his worldwide travel, has not left China in over a year. This is partly due to travel restrictions caused by the Communist Chinese/Fauci Pandemic, and pollution levels that don’t put China in the best light. Jinping has to deal with internal fuel shortages which have led to rationing of diesel fuel. China has clamped down on business, especially Big Tech; Yahoo has announced they are moving out of China because of poor business conditions. Companies who thought they could do business in China have found out that China wants to be in the driver's seat and run their companies. Jinping’s internal problems involve pushing a key part of communism known as “Common Prosperity.” This may be the reason for the threats and saber rattling, creating a distraction for internal consumption in China.
Some are a little confused regarding the difference between the Communist Party of China and the Socialist Party. The Communist Party of China is a socialist party - it’s a name issue. Karl Marx wrote “The Communist Manifesto,” the bible of all socialists. Communism can be seen as the religion, and the types of socialism can be viewed as church denominations. Unlike Russia’s version of socialism during the cold war, which was more open to business in the waning years of the USSR, China has always been a stricter, more radical form of socialism that mirrors the Wokeism that radical Democrats have been pushing in the United States.
