Chinese Communist Party Ready to Celebrate 90th Year as Beijing Drowns

24 Jun

The ChinaMedia Project has noted that with the Chinese Communist Party getting ready to celebrate its 90th anniversary, there are still some newspapers in China that have tried to keep their eye on the ball by continuing to report the news and not get caught up in the hype of the Party’s big birthday party.   The guy looking at a monitor on the wall is Liu Yunshan (刘云山), chief of the Central Propaganda Department.  And while the CCP gets ready to celebrate its birthday, Beijing looks to be under water.  The crazy thing is that while Beijing has been turned into a massive lake, other parts of the country are baked to a crisp.

And here’s the famous Forbidden City in Beijing, with a lake that wasn’t there before.  And it hasn’t been digitally enhanced, either. The photo on the front page of the Southern Metropolis Daily below is water flooding down into the entrance of a subway in Beijing.
