Xinhua News Agency's "High-level Internal Reference Materials" Deceive High Level CCP Officials and Promote the Persecution of Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has always censored information and brainwashed the masses. As for Party members and officials, the CCP has another way to brainwash them. It publishes so-called "High-level Internal Reference Materials" and distributes them to officials according to their rank as a form of elite privilege, and many of them believe that they are learning about the real situation through reading these internal reference materials.
However, this is not the case. This is, in fact, another way used by the CCP to prevent the Party officials from learning the facts and to brainwash them. Because this abnormal way of transmitting information is controlled by a few leaders in power, it can be easily abused by those in power with ulterior motives to mislead officials at various levels, so as to achieve their dirty political intentions. Furthermore, the means used in the process are extremely deceptive.
Among those "internal reference materials" is the internal publication "Internal Trends" edited by the Xinhua News Agency. This publication is classified as "High-level Internal Reference Materials" exclusively for the the eyes of high-ranking CCP officials at and above the provincial level and for Army commanders and above. This is the main source of information for many CCP officials. Jiang Zemin's clique based their persecution of Falun Gong on lies and fabricated accusations, and the Xinhua News Agency has played the role of one of the most essential propaganda tools in spreading lies and framing Falun Gong. It has been used not only to discredit Falun Gong and deceive the general public, but also as a political tool for Jiang's clique to deceive CCP members and government officials.
For example, since November 2006, "Internal Trends" published a series of so-called "internal reference materials" that spread lies, such as that Falun Gong was expanding towards the countryside of the Northwest, especially towards "the former revolutionary areas" in Shannxi Province. This is another round of new schemes to target Falun Gong that has been plotted by a few high-ranking CCP members in power as they have become more desperate at their failure to eradicate Falun Gong through persecution. The 610 Office then put on an act and carried out a so-called "investigation." The outcome of such an "investigation," which is based solely on political needs, is naturally unreliable. On the one hand, it set out to cover up their failure; on the other hand, it aims to continue to deceive people and find excuses for further persecution. Under such a wicked scheme, the CCP has recently carried out an extensive and unlawful campaign to arrest Falun Gong practitioners.
These so-called "internal reference materials" are extremely deceptive and carry evil political motives. The CCP has always spread rumors saying that Falun Gong has an agenda for political power, and it has used this false accusation as an excuse for their persecution of Falun Gong. In order to usurp the state's power in history, the CCP established some so-called "revolutionary bases." Now these "internal reference materials" have framed Falun Gong by saying that Falun Gong is "infiltrating and expanding" towards the CCP's "revolutionary bases." The CCP officials, whose mindset is controlled by the Party Culture, would thus naturally have a conditioned reflex that Falun Gong is trying to take over the state's power. This is how they are deceived with lies.
Before the persecution started in July 1999, there were 70 million to 100 million people practicing Falun Gong in China. Practitioners were everywhere, from all walks of life, including the Northwest region. How could there be an issue of "infiltrating?" As for the "expanding," isn't this an unwitting revelation of their failure in the persecution? Of course, the Jiang clique still wants to put up a last-ditch struggle in the face of defeat. Moreover, it still tries to win over people to go along with them in their evil deeds and be buried alongside them.
Because CCP officials of certain ranks are able to read these "internal reference materials," some of them feel very confident and think that they know the facts about Falun Gong very well. These officials resent Falun Gong practitioners' efforts to clarify the facts, and they turn a deaf ear to them.
I have come across such officials myself. When I told them that Falun Gong has been wronged and that Falun Gong has no political agenda and no intention for any political power, they did not listen at all and they argued, "I have read internal reference materials. I know better than you do." Jiang's clique deceives people through the CCP's "internal reference materials" and its intelligence system. As a result, many CCP officials are fooled and deceived unknowingly.
Some officials may not believe that the Party and their leaders would deceive them, and it may not have occurred to them that all their information sources (including those intelligence and "internal reference materials") have always been controlled by Jiang Zemin, Zeng Qinghong and Luo Gan. Jiang's clique, in order to gain self-interest, has always provided false information and news to those who are not in their clique, including to high-ranking officials. While some officials are participating in the persecution of Falun Gong, they are actually being used and manipulated.
International sources once exposed cases of Jiang's clique brazenly deceiving high-ranking officials. A photograph taken in October 1992 of Deng Xiaoping and Hu Jintao once aroused much attention in the international community, as the photo appeared to have three different versions. According to "asiatimes-chinese.com" the photograph published by Xinhua News Agency had been altered.  What is more surprising is that the photograph Hu Jintao kept for himself is the altered version, not the original one. The then CCP head Jiang Zemin, for his political intention, gave Hu Jintao the altered photo (which adds Jiang to the photo). Even, then Politburo member Hu Jintao could not get the original photograph of himself. Then how can CCP officials be so sure that the "internal reference materials" and information they get are true?
Many people know that the CCP is unscrupulous in its internal struggle against opponents, as evidenced by the slaughter of the AB league, the purging of Liu Shaoqi (former state leader), Peng Dehuai (an Army General) and others. The CCP even treats their own "comrades" so cruelly, let alone Falun Gong practitioners.
In order to frame Falun Gong and accuse Falun Gong of intending to usurp the state's power, the "610 Office," under the control of Jiang's clique, tries very hard to fabricate false information. For example, at a recent rally in the U.S. to support the millions of people who have quit the CCP, a democracy activist mentioned the "Velvet Revolution." (This refers to a non-violent revolution in Czechoslovakia in 1989 that terminated the communist government there.) The "610 Office" deliberately distorted the facts by saying, "Falun Gong wants to carry out a Velvet Revolution," indicating that Falun Gong wants to overthrow the Chinese government. Currently, Jiang's clique is spreading rumors, saying Falun Gong is "sabotaging the Beijing Olympics" to deceive those who do not know the facts, and it is unlawfully arresting Falun Gong practitioners.
Jiang's scoundrel clique has framed Falun Gong time and time again, deluding people both inside and outside of the CCP, in order to fabricate excuses to sustain its existence and continue the persecution. The spies under the control of the "610 Office" provide false information based on the needs of their superiors, and they exert themselves for the CCP in order to obtain large amounts of "activity funds."
The CCP persecutes good people, and this has enraged heaven and earth. The spreading of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party has awakened more and more Chinese people, and the mighty current of quitting the CCP has pushed the CCP to the edge of complete disintegration.
Jiang's clique has met with complete defeat in their persecution of Falun Gong. The desperate struggle of the "610 Office" can only make their end more miserable. Those who have followed Jiang and Luo in the persecution of Falun Gong, regardless of whether they are forced to do so, half-heartedly do so, or voluntarily do so, will all come to a most ignominious end. I hope those CCP officials who still bury their heads in the sand will wake up to reality.
