Xi Jinping takes the title ‘Mate’ last used by Mao in the final sign of consolidating power … as the Australian general reveals he fears the country is ready for WAR with China

  • Chinese President Xi Jinping has recently assumed the title of ‘helmsman’
  • A description of honor denoting supreme authority was last used by Mao Zedong
  • The change was mentioned in a Senate Armed Forces Committee last week
  • Comes as A.Oestral army is on the brink of “all-out war” with China

Chinese ruler Xi Jinping has adopted a new title last used by Chairman Mao in an effort to further tighten his grip on power, US officials said.

The president and general secretary of the country’s Communist Party has now assumed the role of ‘helmsman’, a position of honor representing ultimate authority.

US intelligence officials say Xi is “ firmly in control of every aspect of Chinese society ” while continuing to push for world-stage dominance over Western democracies.

Army Lieutenant General Scott Berrier said a meeting of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee in October had marked a major shift in Xi’s power.

Speaking to the Senate Armed Services Committee last week, he said, “I think Xi is firmly in control of the party, the military and every aspect of Chinese society.”

“The subsequent communiqué (in October) probably pointed to Xi’s special political position within the party, calling him the” core navigator and helmsman, “an invocation not used since Mao Zedong,” he added.

During his 33-year rule in China, Mao’s best-known nickname was ‘Great Helmsman’.

Although commentators had already casually conferred the title on Xi, the use of the term by the Chinese president is seen as part of a plan to consolidate his rule.

Beijing believes China is in “a period of significant strategic opportunities,” added Lieutenant General Berrier.

It comes amid fears of an all-out war between Australia and China over trade tariffs and calls for an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus by Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Major General Adam Findlay, formerly one of Australia’s top military commanders, said a combat war with the communist nation was likely and that we were already engaged in warfare in the “gray zone.”

The Special Forces general made the terrifying prediction during a troop briefing in April 2020, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Mr Findlay, who has since resigned but is an adviser to the Australian Defense Force, reportedly said there was a ‘high probability’ of war.

Relations between the two nations have been tense since Mr Morrison called for an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus last year, and these have only gotten worse after China imposed punitive trade tariffs hitting Australian farmers.

Who do you think the protagonist is? [regional] threat? ‘he reportedly asked the troops, to which they replied’ China ‘.

Multiple sources say the general then warned that China has 26,000 special forces, and that Australia needs to strengthen its traditional armed forces, as well as cyber and even space.

“We need to make sure we don’t lose momentum, get back in the region,” he added, fearing Beijing was taking advantage of Australia’s “absence” in the area – with the nations in a “gray zone.”
