  • A nuclear War with China

  • Is a “real possibility

  • A brazen new attack by Chinese hackers

  • And a Chinese government plan to boostmasculinity

  • That and more on this week's China news headlines

  • Welcome to China Uncensored, I'm Chris Chappell.

  • We are in a Cold War with the Chinese Communist Party

  • And what's a cold war without the threat of nuclear annihilation?

  • A nuclear war with China is a “real possibility”.

  • That's according to the head of U.S. Strategic Command Admiral Charles Richard.

  • He wrote his rather grim summary in this month's issue of "Proceedings," the U.S. Naval Institute's

  • monthly magazine.

  • There is a real possibility that a regional crisis with Russia or China could escalate

  • quickly to a conflict involving nuclear weapons, if they perceived a conventional loss would

  • threaten the regime or state.”

  • Sort of the Andross model.

  • If I go down, I'm taking you with me.

  • Consequently, the U.S. military must shift its principal assumption from 'nuclear employment

  • is not possible' to 'nuclear employment is a very real possibility.'”

  • Which is why I'm happy to announce a new company I'm starting called Vault-Tec Industries!

  • We'll build for you the absolute highest quality fallout shelters, guaranteed not to

  • be secret horrific sociological experiments!

  • But you shouldn't worry too much about Cold War 2.

  • Because first you should worry about proxy wars!

  • Once again, China has sent military planes into Taiwan's airspace.

  • But this time, a US military aircraft joined as well.

  • And so China took the opportunity to remind everyone that Taiwan independence means war.

  • Obviously, Taiwan is already an independent country.

  • China's not flying provocative warplanes into their own airspace.

  • But, uh, let's not tell them that.  

  • So how will the Biden Administration handle an increasingly aggressive Chinese Communist

  • Party?

  • A State Department spokesman says Biden wants to be lockstep with America's allies on

  • China

  • Hopefully the spokesman is referring to being lockstep with Taiwan on defensenot lockstep

  • with our European allies on their China investment deal.

  • Which brings us to Gina Raimondo.

  • She's Biden's pick for Commerce Secretary.

  • She's spoken about protecting US telecom networks from Chinese companies.

  • But in her nomination speech, she didn't say whether or not the Biden administration

  • would keep Chinese telecom Huawei on a blacklist.

  • The US has been calling Huawei a national security threat since the Obama Administration.

  • But the Trump Administration went further by actually putting Huawei on a trade blacklist.

  • Now, House Republicans, led by Michael McCaul, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs

  • Committee, want to delay Raimondo's confirmation, until the administration makes its Huawei

  • stance clear

  • The fact that the Biden Administration has still refused to commit to keeping Huawei

  • on the Department of Commerce's Entity List is incredibly alarming and dangerous.”

  • So they want to, “place a hold on Ms. Raimondo's confirmation until the Biden Administration

  • clarifies their intentions for Huawei and on export control policies for a country that

  • is carrying out genocide and threatening our national security.”

  • It is kind of hard to say I really want to do business with a country that's committing

  • genocide.

  • Of course, not all countries have problems doing business with those committing genocide.

  • Like Myanmar!

  • I'll tell you more after the break.

  • Welcome back.

  • Myanmar has billions of dollars of investment deals going with the Chinese Communist regime.

  • Myanmar also had a military coup this week

  • China has blocked the UN from condemning the coup.

  • And if the US isn't careful, it could push Myanmar closer to China

  • For more on the Myanmar Coup, and what it means for the Biden Administration's attempts

  • to deal with China, check out yesterday's episode on America Uncovered.

  • According to Reuters, Chinese hackers may have exploited a bug in SolarWinds software

  • to spy on a US federal payroll agency.

  • Don't worry.

  • The software flaw exploited by the suspected Chinese group is separate from the one the

  • United States has accused Russian government operatives of using,” to compromise sensitive

  • federal agencies.

  • Is that supposed to make me feel better?

  • Two hostile authoritarian regimes were able to separately break into SolarWinds?

  • I'd actually feel better if they had to work together to crack it

  • Like some kind of terrible sequel to Hackers where Russia is played by Steven Seagal and

  • China is played by Jackie Chan.

  • Now to Hong Kong refugees.

  • Which is now pretty much anyone in Hong Kong looking to escape the long arm of Beijing

  • The new Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has suggested the US could give them sanctuary.

  • In an interview with MSNBC, Blinken said, “We see people who are, again, in Hong Kong

  • standing up for their own rights, the rights that they felt were guaranteed to them

  • And ifthey're the victims of repression from Chinese authorities, we should do something

  • to give them haven.”

  • Back in December, there was a bill that would grant temporary refuge to Hong Kongers.

  • It unanimously passed in the House, but was blocked in the Senate by...Ted Cruz.

  • He worried there weren't safeguards in place to prevent Chinese spies from sneaking in

  • as well.

  • Meanwhile, the UK is offering Hong Kong residents a route to citizenship.

  • Hong Kong residents can apply for a British National Overseas passport, or BNO.

  • In response, China said it would no longer recognize BNOs.

  • Speaking of the UK, the UK has revoked the license of Chinese state-owned broadcaster

  • CGTN, which is the English version of China Central Television.

  • It comes after the media regulator Ofcomconcluded that the news channel was ultimately controlled

  • by the ruling Communist Party of China.”

  • I could have told them that years ago.

  • But better late than never.

  • It also comes after Ofcom ruled thatCGTN repeatedly breached impartiality standards

  • with its coverage of protests last year in Hong Kong.”

  • And it *also* comes after a complaint by Peter Humphrey, a UK citizen who was forced to give

  • a confession while in a Chinese prison.

  • CGTN then broadcast that forced confession on its channel in the UK, which was illegal.

  • We had Humphrey on our podcast a few months ago.

  • Check that out for more.

  • You may remember in a recent episode I talked about Lai Xiaomin, China's most corrupt

  • official.

  • He was caught with 3 metric tons of cash that came from bribes, as well as 100 mistresses.

  • And now, he has been executed.

  • For the bribes.

  • Not for the mistresses.

  • Jack Maone of China's richest men.

  • He mysteriously disappeared back in October, and reappeared in January.

  • But his troubles are just beginning.

  • First, Chinese state-run media left his name off a list of entrepreneurial leaders.

  • And now his company Ant Group is being forcibly restructured by Chinese regulators.

  • Those are the same regulators Ma criticized back in October.

  • Before disappearing for months.

  • And the increased pressure is now causing Chinese tech companies to turn on each other.

  • Two of China's biggest tech companies are in a lawsuit.

  • Douyin the company that owns TikTok, is suing Tencent as the government launches an antitrust

  • crackdown on China's tech industry.

  • China is also stockpiling computer chips in response to a US ban.

  • And in the midst of all this, Apple is starting to move production out of China.

  • I do hope the iPhone 13 comes with less slave labor.

  • Also this week, I want to give a big thank you to Australian Senator Eric Abetz for mentioning

  • China Uncensored in the Australian Parliament after we had him on the show last month.

  • China Uncensored, a YouTube program from the United States.”

  • Also, I guess, thank you for your many years of courageously standing up to the CCP.

  • But mainly, thank you for name dropping China Uncensored in Parliament.

  • Does this mean that China Uncensored is now in the official parliamentary record

  • Despite all the chaos in the world, the Chinese Communist Party hasn't forgotten its core

  • mission: persecuting Chinese people.

  •   In the past three years, 50 people have been

  • sent to jail for using Twitter.

  • But there are bigger problems.

  • Chinese millennials aren't getting married.

  • So obviously, the solution is boosting masculinity with PE classes!

  • Surely this won't become some insane new government policy that overzealous local officials

  • take to an extreme.

  • But China's top advisory body, the CPPCC, is worried.

  • They sayBoys...have become too delicate, timid and effeminate after being schooled

  • mostly by women teachers.”

  • And so, “Some affluent parents, worried that their sons are too fragile, are sending

  • them to private boot camps that promise to turn them into 'real' men through army-style

  • drills.”

  • In other words, a new generation of soldiers for the US China Cold War.

  • And we end where we began.

  • And now it's time for me to answer a question from one of you, a fan who supports China

  • Uncensored through the crowd funding website Patreon!

  • Tommy Hoover asks, “Yall should play socialism monopoly again..

  • It was hilarious we watched the whole thing lol

  • Ah, Tommy is talking about a recent episode of our podcast, China Unscripted.

  • We play the very real gameMonopoly Socialism.

  • It was a lot of fun for us.

  • But this reminds me of an idea I had for a new show, one where Matt, Shelley, and I talk

  • about news and politics while playing through video games.

  • It could be a fun way to get people into some topics that might be a little dry or too serious

  • on their own.

  • But I'd love to hear what you think about that  idea.

  • Does that sound like a show you'd watch?

  • Let me know in the comments below.

  • Thanks for your question Tommy.

  • And thank you for watching.

  • Once again I'm Chris Chappell.

  • See you next time.
