TENSION IS HIGH WITHIN CHINA’S LEADERSHIP ECHELONS
AS UNITED STATES MAINTAINS UNRELENTING PRESSURE
As China-US relations deteriorate rapidly and tensions mount, concern is growing in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s leadership echelons about the next punitive steps that the Trump Administration might take. Barely a week has gone by in recent months without at least one punitive sanction being slapped on China by the US. These sanctions are beginning to increasingly impact on the CCP and its members. Contributing to the concerns are worries in Beijing that US President Trump has a tough contest in the upcoming Presidential elections in November and could be tempted to take some military action against China to boost his ratings.

QIU SHI CALLS FOR PROTECTING XI JINPING AS “CORE” OF THE WHOLE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY
There have been important developments in China’s domestic politics in recent weeks. These have built on the Party’s assessment of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s communist credentials. Coming as these do at a time when Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) are under considerable pressure due to domestic criticism and the economic situation, in addition to the all-round pressure exerted by the United States which have severely accentuated China’s difficulties, they assume significance. The CCP’s flagship theoretical magazine Qiu Shi (Seeking Truth) had in June 2014 -- within nineteen months of Xi Jinping’s assumption to power -- described Xi Jinping as “one of China’s greatest communist leaders” who had put forward “new thinking, new views and new conclusions”! That article signalled Xi Jinping’s capture of the CCP.

LEADING PARTY JOURNAL QIU SHI PUBLICISES XI JINPING’S
OF 18 PHRASES EXTOLLING CCP’S LEADERSHIP
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s flagship theoretical fortnightly magazine in its latest (2020/14; July 15, 2020) issue published two important articles. One was an article by Xi Jinping captioned ‘“The Leadership of the Chinese Communist Party Is the Most Essential Characteristic of Socialism With Chinese Characteristics.” It was prominently publicised on July 15, by Xinhua and the official party mouthpiece ‘People’s Daily’ and as the lead news item by the state-controlled CCTV. The article is essentially a compilation of 18 phrases culled from Xi Jinping’ speeches of the past 7 years from December 2013 to October 2019.

‘XI JINPING LAUNCHES ‘YAN’AN STYLE’ CAMPAIGN TO CLEANSE CHINA’S SECURITY APPARATUS’
The national security apparatus is the crown jewel of any country. Authoritarian regimes pay particular attention to them as they help preserve the regime and keep the population compliant and in check. China's communist leaders have, for obvious reasons, been conscious of the importance of the security apparatus. In the backdrop of the increasing criticism since 2017 -- including by senior communist cadres and ‘princelings’ -- of him personally and his policies, Xi Jinping too has turned his attention to ensuring the loyalty of the security apparatus. He has just this month unleashed a severe year-long ‘rectification’ campaign throughout China’s security system.
