  • No end in sight for the trade war

  • Human rights become America's secret weapon

  • And China makes threats to well, everyone!

  • That and more on this week's China Uncensored.

  • This is China Uncensored.

  • I'm Chris Chappell.

  • This week's China news headlines!

  • The US-China Trade War looks like it's going to be a long one.

  • Earlier this week,

  • President Trump announced new tariffs on China.

  • And the Chinese regime responded by devaluing its currency.

  • So the US Treasury Department declared China a currency manipulator.

  • Which we all pretty much knew they were for years,

  • but hey, now it's official.

  • And then the Chinese Communist Party responded

  • by calling the currency manipulator label totally wrong.

  • Which proves something I've believed for a long time

  • the Communist Party honestly doesn't know what wrong means.

  • It explains so much.

  • Chinese companies have also been ordered

  • to stop buying US agricultural products.

  • According to a trade advocacy group,

  • Trump's tariffs have cost US businesses $3.4 billion dollars.

  • But according to US Treasury data,

  • over the past 12 months,

  • the US government has collected $63 billion dollars in tariffs.

  • About half of that is due to the increased tariffs on Chinese goods.

  • Meanwhile, a lot of Chinese companies are struggling.

  • They've have resorted to issuing

  • more than $200 billion dollars in I.O.U.s.

  • Wait...Where have I seen that before?

  • What is this?

  • What is this?

  • Where's all the money?”

  • That's as good as money, sir.

  • Those are I.O.U.s.”

  • Brilliant.

  • The Trump administration is going nuclear on human rights.

  • This week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said,

  • China is home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time.

  • It is truly the stain of the century.”

  • And I thought my roommate's old couch had the stain of the century.

  • Vice President Mike Pence said the US is also considering

  • punishing Chinese officials for human rights abuses.

  • Vice President Mike Pence has signaled that the Trump administration

  • is open to using the Global Magnitsky Act

  • to sanction top officials in Xinjiang, China.”

  • The Global Magnitsky Act is basically targeted sanctions.

  • Rather than hitting an entire country,

  • it targets specific officials involved in crimes.

  • It prevents them from traveling to the US,

  • seizes any property they own in the US,

  • and punishes companies and banks for doing business with them.

  • It basically cuts these officials off from the high end lifestyle

  • they typically enjoy in the Western world.

  • No more sipping Espresso Martinis in Miami.

  • Tragic.

  • Pence also met with representatives

  • of religious groups persecuted in China,

  • including Christian, Uighur Muslim,

  • and Falun Gong representatives.

  • In response, the Chinse Communist Party

  • couldn't decide whether to condemn the meeting

  • or just pretend the persecuted groups didn't exist.

  • Tough choices.

  • And late last week,

  • a Uighur man was detained in Qatar.

  • They were going to deport him back to China.

  • So he made an impassioned plea over social media.

  • “I need the world's help

  • And after his story spread on social media,

  • he was put on a plane...

  • to the United States.

  • Yes, the US State Department rescued a Muslim refugee.

  • And confused a lot of Americans.

  • But if human rights aren't enough of a weapon

  • against the Chinese Communist Party,

  • there's always actual weapons.

  • The US has withdrawn from the INF treaty.

  • That's the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

  • The reason, the State Department says,

  • isthe Russian Federation's continuing violation of the treaty.”

  • Another reason is China.

  • According to the treaty,

  • the US couldn't flight test or posses

  • intermediate-range ground launched missiles.

  • China never signed on to the INF treaty.

  • And guess what China has been building?

  • Now that the US is out of the INF treaty,

  • Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has said the US plans to deploy

  • non-nuclear INF-range missiles in Asia,

  • sooner rather than later.”

  • The Chinese Communist Party...is not pleased.

  • And has warned it willnot stand idly by.”

  • Which is fantastic!

  • The CIA already said a year ago we're in Cold War 2

  • And now we have a right proper arms race going on!

  • You know what that means!

  • James Bond movies will be good again!

  • The real question is,

  • will she be a trigger-happy womanizer like the previous 007s?

  • But it's not just US missiles China has to worry about.

  • Taiwan is developing a new supersonic cruise missile.

  • But from a certain point of view,

  • doesn't that really just mean China is developing

  • a new supersonic cruise missile?

  • What's that Shelley?

  • No?

  • Ok.

  • Taiwan is reportedly building 20 of the Yun Feng missiles

  • as well as 10 truck-based launchers.

  • This would give Taiwan the ability to hit

  • many of the Chinese military bases

  • that would potentially be involved in an assault on the island nation.

  • And even NATO is getting involved.

  • The Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg,

  • says NATO needs to address quote,

  • the rise of China.”

  • Specifically how China is,

  • Investing heavily in critical infrastructure in Europe,

  • [its] increased presence in the Arctic

  • and also increased presence in Africa,

  • and in cyberspace.”

  • Of course, the real question is whether NATO

  • will *actually* do anything.

  • Meanwhile, China is threatening India.

  • In a few months,

  • India will be starting trials for 5G systems in the country.

  • But the Indian government has yet to make it clear

  • whether or not they'll let the Chinese telecom company Huawei join.

  • Countries around the world have been joining

  • the United States' call to ban Huawei over national security concerns.

  • But it's a good thing the Communist Party is so good at diplomacy.

  • They know just how to soothe any fears India may have.

  • With threats!

  • Chinese officials told the Indian ambassador in Beijing

  • thatthere could be 'reverse sanctions' on Indian firms

  • engaged in business in China should India block Huawei.”

  • In other words, if India bans Huawei,

  • China will make Indian private businesses operating in China suffer.

  • Hopefully those companies then will pressure the Indian government

  • to put their short-term profits ahead of national security.

  • So clearly, things aren't going well for China.

  • And now, even New Zealand is even getting upset.

  • The Chinese consulate in Auckland

  • praised a group of Chinese students at a New Zealand university f

  • or a demonstration ofspontaneous patriotism.”

  • See, students had put up a Lennon Wall

  • at the University of Auckland

  • to support Hong Kong protesters.

  • Of course, the Chinese consulate wasn't referring to

  • the people who put up the Lennon Wall aspatriots.”

  • It was *these* guys who were thepatriots.”

  • Hong Kong is different from China.

  • Hong Kong is a part of China.

  • If you don't like China, get out of China.

  • Hey hey hey

  • Hong Kong is a part of China, I tell you that.

  • Hey, you are not human.

  • F—ing stupid pig.

  • Back off!

  • Stop Fighting!

  • Security.

  • I'm...pretty sure she fell on purpose.

  • But it made international news, so good on her.

  • Of course, that didn't stop mainland Chinese students

  • from allegedly wrecking the Lennon Wall.

  • The good news is, the New Zealand government

  • has rebuked China over its recent comments

  • and actions where it sought to suppress freedom of speech

  • and voiced support for violent opposition

  • to Hong Kong protesters in New Zealand.”

  • Meanwhile in the Land Down Under, a Chinese student

  • clearly *not* a patriot

  • joined a local protest in support of Hong Kong protesters.

  • A few days later,

  • Chinese officials visited his parents in China.

  • And they warned them not to let the student

  • participate in any more protests.

  • So that his family could stay safe.

  • Also, his parents had to assure the officials

  • that their son was loyal to the Communist Party.

  • Which proves again that Chinese Communist Party influence

  • in liberal democracies is nothing to worry about!

  • Oh, and then masked men destroyed a Lennon Wall

  • at another university in Australia.

  • And with the destruction of that Lennon wall,

  • the Hong Kong protesters have been defeated.

  • Right.

  • By the way, school is starting soon.

  • And if you're a university student,

  • why not set up your own Lennon Wall?

  • Be sure to take lots of pictures and video

  • of what happens and send it to me

  • on the China Uncensored facebook page,

  • or my twitter account, @chinauncensored.

  • And showing that the Communist Party is really losing its grip,

  • it has banned Chinese movies and actors

  • from going to one of the biggest movie award ceremonies in Asia

  • because it's in Taiwan.

  • And thus Taiwan fell,

  • and became a part of Mainland China once again.

  • Wow, such good strategies the Communist Party comes up with.

  • And that's it for this week's China news headlines!

  • And now it's time for me to answer a question from one of you

  • a fan who support China Uncensored

  • with a dollar or more per episode,

  • by contributing through Patreon.

  • Largezo asks,

  • Do you think that the PRC will conduct a military intervention

  • in Hong Kong in the near future?”

  • Well, that is the question everyone is asking.

  • Certainly the Chinese Communist Party has been hinting about that.

  • And let's not forget the PLA garrison in Hong Kong

  • making videos showing them fighting unarmed protesters.

  • But currently top Communist leaders

  • are at the annual Beidaihe meeting

  • And guess what?!

  • Jiang Zemin, the 92-year-old former president

  • and a heavyweight among party elders,

  • is expected to attend the conclave this year.”

  • And if you've been watching the show,

  • you know Jiang Zemin is behind a faction

  • trying to undermine Xi Jinping.

  • And I'm sure he'd love for things go Tiananmen in Hong Kong.

  • Because that would be very bad for Xi Jinping.

  • But probably nothing concrete will happen until that meeting wraps.

  • And secretive Party meetings are so secretive

  • so who knows what will come out of it.

  • Thanks for your question.

  • And thanks to everyone watching!

  • We could not make this show without your support.

  • Whether it's supporting us through Patreon

  • or just watching and sharing the show

  • with your friends and family.

  • So thank you from me

  • and everyone on the China Uncensored team.

  • Once again I'm Chris Chappell,

  • see you next time.
