Turns Out China IS Lying About Everything. In what may come as a shocking surprise to exactly nobody, the next great discovery as more and more layers of the global ponzi onion are exposed, is that China was, in fact, lying about everything.

Turns Out China IS Lying About Everything

Yes, we know, stunning. From the NYT: As the Chinese economy continues to sputter, prominent corporate executives in China and Western economists say there is evidence that local and provincial officials are falsifying economic statistics to disguise the true depth of the troubles. Record-setting mountains of excess coal have accumulated at the country’s biggest storage areas because power plants are burning less coal in the face of tumbling electricity demand. But local and provincial government officials have forced plant managers not to report to Beijing the full extent of the slowdown, power sector executives said. Even that lonely indicator that some, even us, had considered somewhat realistic: electric output, is a mirage.

The question is whether the actual slowdown is even worse. Taoism.

The Chinese Communist Party. Introduction The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is the founding and ruling political party of modern China, boasting more than eighty-two million members to date.

The Chinese Communist Party

In 2012, the CCP underwent a pivotal once-in-a-decade power transition that saw its fifth generation of leaders set the future agenda for the second-largest economy in the world. While the party has maintained a political monopoly since its founding, the effects of China's rapid economic growth have triggered increasing social unrest and political destabilization that challenge the country's rise as a global power. A spate of political scandals has also exposed deep power struggles inside the infamously opaque organization. While the changeover will do little to affect immediate party policy and direction, the implications of the new appointments could shed some light on how China plans to position itself on the world stage.

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese President Xi Jinping was formally named head of a new national security body Friday, in a move that further strengthens his status as the most powerful Chinese leader in two decades.

China's President Xi Jinping Named Head Of New Security Body

Xi is already leader of the ruling Communist Party and head of dual state and party commissions commanding the armed forces. Last month, he was named head of a reform commission, giving him overall control over the world's second largest economy and sidelining premier and sometimes-rival Li Keqiang. The new position as chairman of the National Security Commission gives Xi ultimate control over the police and sprawling state security apparatus.

The Bai people – Yunnan’s second largest nationality. In China’s southwestern Yunnan province, there’s a picturesque city called Dali.

The Bai people – Yunnan’s second largest nationality

Dali is known for its historical and cultural status, being a capital of ancient kingdoms, but it is also known as the home of the Bai ethnic group. In the past, the group was known as the “Heman,” “Baiman” and “Bairen” people. In the 1950’s, The Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture was founded and the group was officially named as the Bai nationality.

Bai means “white” in Chinese, referring to the white clothes that the Bai people like to wear. The Bai worship the color white, and their architecture reflects this. Protected by village gods Buddhism has been the main religion among the Bai for the last 15 centuries. The Bai have their roots deep in agriculture. Village gods have their own celebration in Dali, called the Benzhu festival. The other two bigger festivals for the Bai are the March Fair and the Torch Festival. Traditional Bai tea ceremony The Bai are said to be friends of singing and dancing.

Chinese women like wine (Meli Melo d'infos)

I didn't stay long in each city, but I did enjoy some nice meals and chats with many food and wine lovers. One evening in Hangzhou, I was fortunate enough to sit next to a charming, very attractive woman in her 30s. It is rare that I am seated next to a woman over a long wine dinner, so I was intrigued to find out more about her background. She said that, along with a passion for golf, she became interested in wine as a hobby about five years ago. Since then, she has become so involved that she is now a consultant and adviser to wealthy friends who have become clients. What impressed me were her questions about each wine that was presented at the dinner we shared and her enthusiasm. Forget the stereotypical Chinese male wine drinker who is buying by label. These very opinionated women were also clear about criticism. I heard similar snipes elsewhere. After many of the dinners, I was invited to other venues. Chine: des anciens dirigeants réclament la liberté d'expression.

Moins d’une semaine après que le dissident chinois Liu Xiaobo a reçu le prix Nobel de la paix, 23 sages du Parti communiste chinois ont envoyé une lettre au gouvernement pour lui demander de lever les restrictions sur la liberté d’expression.

Chine: des anciens dirigeants réclament la liberté d'expression

Les auteurs de la lettre, parmi lesquels se trouvent l’ancien secrétaire de Mao Zedong et l’ancien rédacteur en chef du journal People’s Daily, critiquent ouvertement le gouvernement pour ne pas avoir tenu la promesse, gravée dans la constitution, de garantir la liberté de parole, et écrivent que la liberté d’expression était plus grande à Hong Kong sous la domination anglaise que dans la Chine d’aujourd’hui. «Ce genre de fausse démocratie qui consiste à affirmer des principes et à les refuser dans la pratique est un scandale dans l’histoire de la démocratie», peut-on lire sur la lettre.

Sûr de sa puissance, Pékin ignore les jugements de l'étranger -

Rien ne semble pouvoir le faire céder quand à sa façon très particulière de faire respecter les droits de l'homme, qui provoque l'indignation internationale. Le 25 décembre, le plus connu des dissidents chinois, Lu Xiaobo, a été condamné à onze ans de prison pour avoir rédigé une charte appelant à une transition démocratique pacifique et publié des textes critiques sur Internet.

Jean François Billeter contre François Jullien - Nankin en douce

En général, même si des auteurs obscurs profitent de la renommée d’une « star » pour attirer des lecteurs en tapant sur ladite star, l’usage de la critique frontale par des livres coups de poing est sain. Jean-François Billeter contre François Jullien - CHA NO AJI - 茶之. René Etiemble, un sinologue passionné. Dans son numéro du 12 mars, «Culture et Arts», hebdomadaire littéraire sous l'égide de l'Association des écrivains chinois, est publié un article à la mémoire de René Etiemble sinologue passionné disparu le 7 janvier 2002 à l'âge de 92 ans. L'article est dû à la plume de Shen Dali, écrivain et professeur à l'Université des langues étrangères de Beijing. Dans e texte intitulé «M. Yu Gong Yi Shan (The Foolish Old Man Who Removed the Mountains) In ancient times, there was an old man in front of whose house were two high mountains, making it very inconvenient for him to come and go. He gathered his family and started to level the mountains.

His neighbor scoffed, "You are foolish. You are too old and weak to level a small hill, let along two big mountains. " But the old man said, "I have sons, and my sons have sons. I will have endless progeny, but the mountains won't grow any higher. " History of China. Ancient Chinese Stories: The Tale of Old Man Yu Gong and The Mou. Confucius.

Jamais les dirigeants communistes chinois n'avaient exécuté un ressortissant occidental pour affirmer leur souveraineté et leur puissance. C'est ce qu'ils ont fait le mardi 29 décembre en mettant à mort un ressortissant britannique d'origine pakistanaise Akmal Shaikh, 53 ans.

Aucune circonstance atténuante n'a été retenue en faveur d'Amal Shaikh. La manipulation dont il a été l'objet au Tadjikistan de la part de ceux qui l'ont envoyé vers Urumqi avec une valise contenant quatre kilos d'héroïne aurait du atténuer sa responsabilité. Son état maniaco-dépressif attesté par nombre de ses proches aurait du - selon la loi chinoise - l'amener à être placé dans une institution spécialisée.
