Xi Jinping, the leader of China, has set himself up to take a third term in full control of the country, highlighted an upcoming move on Taiwan, and has done a victory lap over the defeat of Hong Kong’s democracy aspirations by Beijing and vowed to finally take down COVID in a speech issued this past Sunday.
Xi, who is not 69 years old and first took the seat as the head of the Chinese Communist Party roughly 10 years ago, took on a stridently nationalist tone while kicking off the 20th Party Congress, which seems to have affirmed him as its leader for his entire life. He was quite enthused that his country was slated to be on a collision course with the West and intended to officially forcefully take Taiwan.
“The wheels of history are rolling on towards China’s reunification and the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation,” stated Xi throughout his massive two-house speech. “Complete reunification of our country must be realized.”

Xi made reference to “rapid changes in the international situation,” which many experts seem to have interpreted to mean the ever-increasing alienation of China from the West and its current building alliance with the nation of Russia.
Xi made a claim of victory over both COVID and Hong Kong’s stalled independence movement, Giving credit to his government for having “protected people’s lives and health.” Labeling Taiwan as just one of three massive challenges come across by his regime, has been deemed a signal that Beijing could be starting to inch towards making a hostile move directly on Taiwan, a self-governing democracy Beijing claims as its own.
This particular speech was given from inside of the Great Hall of the People in Beijing to an assembled 2,300 of the most powerful people within the CCP. They cheered and called out wildly as the president made mention of a possible “reunification” with Taiwan. Although he promised to try and make this goal a reality via peaceful means, he issued a concerning warning.
“We will never promise to renounce the use of force and we reserve the option of taking all measures necessary,” exclaimed Xi.
Recent speculation that China could be preparing to invade Taiwan has been mounting throughout the past year, with various experts in international diplomacy thinking that both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Xi have built a deal behind the scenes to back each other. China has not issued any criticism of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
This weeklong congress is the most important gathering for the CCP in decades as it attempts to consolidate its power base in order to laud Xi as the most powerful leader of the nation since Mao Zedong, who was the ruler of the communist country from 1943 until his death in 1976 at age 82.
The vast majority of the meetings throughout the week are slated to happen in private, but Xi, who now has a solid grip on the entire party, is expected to end the session with even more power and possibly a band new title.
