China urges United States 'restraint' in trade protection

China censors social media responses to proposal to abolish presidential terms

An assortment of phrases have been filtered out by new censors, including "constitution amendment", "re-elected", "proclaim oneself as emperor", and "two term limit".

China's main news outlets have come out to support and justify the ruling Communist Party's stunning decision to change the country's constitution to remove the 10-year limit on the presidency.

"(The introduction of term limits) was the highest and most effective legal restriction preventing personal dictatorship and personal domination of the Party and the government", he wrote, according to a translation by China Media Project. The Economist magazine has even described him as the "most powerful leader in the world".

The names would be referred for the approval of China's parliament, the National People's Congress (NPC), which would begin its annual session on March 5.

Elton John explains storming off stage, says fan was 'rude, disruptive'
It's not a coincidence that F*cked Up and Elton John have very different approaches to onstage interactions. In a statement given to E! Then it all got a bit much for the Rocket Man who got up and left the stage.

"We've clearly heard from the Chinese" that soybeans "are definitely one of the largest things that could be targeted", said Jake Parker, vice president for China operations for the U.S.

So, unlike an emperor or dictator, Xi can not exercise his power arbitrarily. "President for life. And he's great", Trump said. And the "collective emperor" has now decided that Xi should continue as the nation's president - also perhaps as the head of the CPC and the Central Military Commission for one more term (not indefinitely).

"This is absolutely unacceptable and it's a point we've made many times", Trudeau said.

Xi, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remark while meeting with representatives of non-Communist parties. If China's presidency, largely a ceremonial post, has any significance, it allows Xi to deal with national leaders who are squeamish about interacting with someone with only party posts. In the past, only Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, who opened up China's economy after Mao's death, were bestowed such an honor.

Aer Lingus confirm all flights cancelled until Saturday
So, if you do have flights or transport planned for tomorrow, make sure to check online before leaving your house. Many easyJet flights from Gatwick, its biggest base, and its headquarters airport of Luton, are also grounded.

Towards Thailand's south east, Australia is already reeling under allegations of turning into a client state. In China itself, Xi has vamped up the military and modernized the economy by investing in technologies of the future such as e-mobility and artificial intelligence. Now, the global discussion is focusing on a China rushing to catastrophe. Xi's rise to absolute power, Time said, should worry the world.

The CPC Central Committee attaches great importance to personnel reshuffling in State institutions and the top political advisory body, Xi said, adding that the CPC Central Committee has deliberated and collected opinions on the issue.

As of Tuesday morning local time (CST), China had lifted its ban on N again. The truth is the opposite - and reveals with savage starkness the impossible dilemmas facing the Chinese leadership. As second largest economy of the world, Beijing is only a few statistical points away from dislodging the U.S. from the coveted post of global super power and super cop.

In an editorial, which in essence backs The Guardian's view, The Indian Express said that Xi's consolidation of power highlights the "structural weakness" in the Chinese communist party. Apparently this is because N is used in China as an equivalent of what we use "X" for in algebra, which in turn led censors to be concerned that perhaps it could be used in the context of "N terms in office".

Ronda Rousey Scheduled To Appear On The Ellen Show Later This Month
It had been promoted that the victor of that match would have a face-to-face confrontation with Lesnar and Paul Heyman on "Raw". Lesnar as much like a shoot as possible. "If Brock Lesnar wants to fight in UFC, Brock Lesnar will fight in UFC".

"China is free to pursue whatever trade policy it prefers". China's population is better educated, more affluent and better informed than ever. According to mainland media, people have been baffled or upset by the move to remove the term limits. The proposal sparked off concern and speculation at home and overseas that Xi, heading the CPC and military besides the presidency, who recently began his second five-year term would continue for an unprecedented third term and beyond, wielding unquestionable power exercised by the party founder, Mao Zedong in the heydays of China's revolution. Therefore, a lifetime president of the Democratic Republic of China might, quite rightly, seem like a major contradiction.
