The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was founded based on three golden weapons: promoting the armed struggle, utilizing grassroots/masses, and strengthening the party’s control.  Among them, strengthening the party’s control was how the CCP managed to maintain and develop its power throughout its one hundred years.   Thus, in theory, the party’s power of the CCP is the highest and the ultimate power.

CCP – a triad organization

The CCP is a triad organization.  The CCP Constitution stipulates that those who join the CCP must face the CCP flag and swear to “fight for communism for life, be ready to sacrifice everything for the CCP and the people, and never betray the CCP.”  When applying to join the CCP, one must be recommended by two official CCP members as guarantors.  The CCP Constitution also stipulates that “the interests of the CCP and the people are above all else, and that personal interests are subject to the interests of the CCP and the people” and that “the individual shall obey and be subject to the CCP organization.”   In addition, the CCP Constitution also contains the names and ideologies of the past CCP leaders.  This kind of guarantor system, vowing to sacrifice everything for the organization, including life, no betrayal, absolute obedience, and allegiance to the supreme leader, are all characteristics of the underworld.

In 1931, Gu Shunzhang, a member of the Political Bureau of the CCP and the head of the secret service system, rebelled.  Zhou Enlai, the supreme leader of the CCP at the time, led the CCP secret service team to strangle all 47 of Gu Shunzhang’s network of friends and family and had their bodies buried.  The instructed killing included maids, drivers, occasional visitors, and remote friends and relatives.  Si Li who even saved Zhou Enlai’s life in the past happened to be there at the time was also killed by Zhou Enlai mercilessly.  The CCP customarily uses tactics that are even darker than the underworld to force its members to be loyal.

CCP – massive-scale operations

At present, the CCP has more than 90 million CCP members and its CCP organization operates across the country at all levels.  The CCP Constitution stipulates that every three CCP members can form a branch under the general branch, and the CCP committee, etc.  The legislative and judicial institutions at all levels have the CCP organization established within.  In terms of administrative management, the CCP organization extends from the central government, provinces, cities, counties, and townships to the villages, setting up CCP branches in each village.  In cities, the CCP organization has established its presence in every street and community, and even the committees of residential communities have party branches established within.

Within the military, since the “Sanwan Reorganization” campaign in 1927, the CCP has begun to “establish a party branch in every military unit”, and to ensure “the CCP command guns”.  In factories and enterprises, the CCP has established its organization too.  The CCP branches are set up in every workshop and even every team in large factories.   After the economic reform and opening up, even private enterprises, foreign-invested enterprises, and listed companies are all required to establish CCP organization within their enterprise structure.  And small-size private enterprises are collectively managed by the government under a unified CCP branch.

Likewise, the CCP also has a strong presence at all levels of the education sector.  In universities, the CCP established its party branch in every class;  in high schools, each class has its own Communist Youth League branch; and even in elementary schools, it’s in the form of Young Pioneer organization in each class.  The Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers are affiliated organizations of the CCP which means the Chinese people are under the influence and control of the CCP since elementary school.  The CCP has also set up the CCP organization within all the social and cultural organizations.  For example, the labor unions and the Women’s Federation themselves are part of the CCP’s organization.  The CCP has even extended the CCP organization in democratic parties, the Federation of Industry and Commerce, the Red Cross, charity organizations, various academic institutions, media, and NGOs, etc. 

The most ironic thing is the CCP has also established CCP organizations within all kinds of religious groups, such as temples, churches, and mosques.  Some societies, such as alumni and fellow township associations, have set up interim CCP branches.  Moreover, media recently exposed that the CCP has also expanded its CCP organization into countless overseas Chinese communities, including overseas student groups.  The CCP is egregiously pervasive and ubiquitous.  It penetrates every cell of China and has absolute control over everything in China as a nation!

CCP – controlled by gangsters

Despite the fact that the CCP organization is so enormous, it is actually only controlled by several oligarch families.  Each regime change is accompanied by infights or even a conflagration between CCP families and factions, which has typical gangster characteristics.  The Xi Jinping family and the Wang Qishan family are currently in control of the CCP, supplemented by the remnants of Jiang Zemin, Zeng Qinghong, Zhu Rongji, Deng Xiaoping, and Chen Yun, no more than 20 CCP families in total.  The entire history of the CCP is nothing but a history of gangsters.

The Politburo, the highest governing body of the CCP, is equivalent to the company’s board of directors; the Politburo has a standing committee, which is equivalent to the company’s executive board of directors; the general secretary of the CCP is equivalent to the company’s chairman and CEO; and the families and factions that control the CCP are equivalent to the company’s shareholders, whose influence is equivalent to the percentage of shares held.  The Politburo members are usually around 20; the Politburo Standing Committee members are usually 7; the appointment of these members is a result of private negotiation and allocation among the families and factions that control the CCP.  This is equivalent to appointing directors, managing directors, and key major positions according to the size of the equity, among which the most influential one is the general secretary.  In other words, the sharing of power among the CCP’s supreme families is no different from the allocation of interests within the mob.

Usually, the CCP elects a new leadership body at the CCP’s National Party Congress to be held every five years.  Half a year before the next CCP member congress, the current Politburo will appoint a preparatory committee to select CCP member representatives.  According to the CCP Constitution, CCP member representatives are elected by CCP members, but in reality, CCP member representatives are designated by the preparatory committee or its affiliated institutions to ensure that CCP member representatives are accepted by the current Politburo.   When the National Party Congress is held, an organization called the “presidium” will first be established.  This organization is generally composed of current Politburo members and all former Politburo members, in effect, people from various factions.  The presidium meeting put forward a list of personnel arrangements that have been negotiated in advance by various families and factions, including members of the Central Committee, Politburo members, Politburo Standing Committee, General Secretary, Military Commission Chairman, Secretary of the Disciplinary Committee, and other important positions.  Even the government Premier and the head of the legislature and the justice department, and all those non-party member positions would already be shortlisted and then submitted to the CCP congress for election.  In terms of election methods, except for the election of the Central Committee members by secret ballot, all other elections are by show of hands.  So who dares to disagree by not raising his hand?  Needless to say, this mechanism ensures that the transfer of power and the distribution of spoils are completed according to the will of the powerful members of the CCP organization.

CCP – “Shuang-gui” practice

For disobedient CCP members or CCP members who need to be punished, the CCP has its own set of family laws known as “Shuang-gui”, an exception to the general law.  “Shuanggui” demands the members to answer the question at the time and place specified by the party.  The authority that enforces this “family law” is the disciplinary inspection committee set up by the CCP committee at all levels.  In essence, the practice of “Shuang-gui” is just a form of illegal detention.  “Shuanggui” has the following characteristics:

  1. No judicial procedure in place so long a CCP leader agrees;
  2. No conclusive evidence needed, e.g, the procedure can be initiated by a single reporting letter;
  3. No deadline imposed, that is, no time limit on the detention;
  4. No disclosure regarding the physical location of the detention, surveillance records, and health check records;
  5. No notice is given to family members, and no lawyer is allowed.

Given the above unique characteristics of “Shuang-gui”, the CCP’s Central Disciplinary Committee can use any inhumane torture to extract a confession from their targeted CCP members.  The most common form of torture is continuous sleep deprivation, in which the officers of the Central Discipline Inspection Commission take turns to interrogate members in three groups, depriving the “Shuanggui” CCP members of sleep for days with high-powered lights set on their faces.  Few people can survive beyond three days, yet the longest sleep torture record was seven days and seven nights which far exceeded the physiological limit of human beings.  Since there are no surveillance and physical health records, any torture you can think of can be carried out, and some even beyond our imagination.  Through such illegal and inhuman means, the Central Discipline Inspection Commission would always manage to collect the evidence it needed before transferring them to the judiciary, then the judiciary would handle the rest of the legal procedures.  By the end of that, everything would be legitimized according to the laws of the CCP.  This “Shuang-gui” process is entirely the “work of the mob” or “lynching” method typically used by the underworld.

The CCP is no doubt the largest underworld organization in history and in the world.  The most outrageous thing is that this criminal organization, the CCP, through its endless strengthening of party’s control, not only has stolen all of China’s national resources and hijacked state apparatus, it has also long enslaved 1.4 billion Chinese people.
