  • Trump Administration Defends Chinese Muslims?

  • Why This Navy SEAL Fears China

  • How China's Leaders Plan to Live Forever

  • And President Trump's Defense of Chinese Muslims

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

  • This is China Uncensored.

  • I'm Chris Chappell.

  • This week's China news headlines!

  • Navy SEALS are some of the toughest guys in the world.

  • And retired Admiral William McRaven is probably one of the top.

  • He oversaw the raid that got Osama bin Laden in 2011.

  • So when something scares Admiral McRaven,

  • you...should be terrified.

  • Well, at a Council on Foreing Relations meeting this week,

  • McRaven said China and the Chinese Communist Party's military

  • is catching upand in some cases surpassingthe US.

  • It's what he called a holy...something...

  • well I'm not sure what since someone

  • seems to have lost part of the word.

  • But it's a serious moment for the US.

  • The Chinese Communist Party is closing the gap

  • with the US on the technological battlefront.

  • According to a new report by the Council on Foreign Relations,

  • even though China is not a match for the US across the board,

  • China could soon rival the US in fields like AI,

  • robotics, 5G, and possibly biotechnology.

  • Biotechnology?

  • I think I know where this is headed.

  • When they saypresident for life”,

  • they mean, for life.

  • And in that vein, an ad for Beijing's 301 Hospital

  • the top rated hospital in China,

  • where all the Communist leaders go

  • says they're working on a health project

  • that will help leaders live to 150.

  • The ad, which was taken down after a public backlash in China,

  • bragged about organ function regeneration.

  • It's a new technology where they give healthy organs to rich people,

  • by taking them from Chinese dissidents who don't need them anymore.

  • Donald Trumpdefender of the world's Muslims.

  • Umm.

  • Yep, that's no mistake.

  • The Trump Administration

  • is planning to confront China at a UN meeting next week

  • over the Communist Party's persecution

  • of the mostly Muslim Uighur ethnic minority.

  • Ok, so Trump himself won't be doing it.

  • But definitely the people he's appointed will.

  • And this wouldn't be new for the Trump Administration.

  • Vice President Mike Pence has specifically called out

  • the internment camps in China

  • where more than a million Chinese Muslims

  • endure around the clock brainwashing.

  • And yet, no matter how much Chinese authorities

  • try to whitewash the issue,

  • according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,

  • the persecution of Uighurs is thestain of the century.”

  • As opposed to the stain of the last century,

  • which involved Bill Clinton...

  • getting China into the WTO.

  • Getting the UN to move against China's wishes is not easy.

  • China holds a permanent seat on the UN Security Council.

  • That gives it tremendous potential veto power.

  • This week, however, the UN overcame that veto threat

  • to renew a UN political mission in Afghanistan.

  • China was upset there was no mention

  • of the Belt and Road Initiative.

  • That's China's giant global infrastructure investment plan

  • that basically gives China tremendous political influence

  • over whatever country it invests in.

  • And for the past three years,

  • the UN Afghanistan mission

  • basically sang the praises of the Belt and Road.

  • Coincidentally, that also coincides with China

  • expanding its footprint in Afghanistan.

  • Officially, the relationship is for

  • mineral and energy exploration.

  • But also, there's military cooperation.

  • So no wonder other UN council members

  • wanted to take the Belt and Road

  • out of the UN's political mission in Afghanistan.

  • A speech last week from a US State Department official

  • called out Chinese Tech giants for being

  • de facto tools of the Chinese Communist Party.

  • Christopher Ford, the assistant secretary of state

  • for international security and non-proliferation said,

  • The Chinese technology giants are not purely private actors,

  • but instead function as at least de facto tools

  • of the Chinese Communist Party when it matters most.”

  • He specifically mentioned Baidu,

  • Alibaba, Huawei, ZTE, and Tencent.

  • The Chinese Communist Party has created new laws

  • to aid what they call civil military fusion.

  • That basically forces even privately owned Chinese companies

  • to cooperate with the government and Party.

  • Firms such as Huawei, Tencent, ZTE, Alibaba, and Baidu

  • have no meaningful ability to tell the Chinese Communist Party 'no'

  • if officials decide to ask for their assistance.”

  • So much for no means no.

  • Huawei is also running into more and more problems

  • as countries around the world begin

  • full or partial bans on Huawei equipment,

  • usually over national security concerns.

  • The latest country is Estonia, located,

  • uhhh, right...there.

  • Sure.

  • There.

  • Estonia is restricting government use of Huawei

  • over national security concerns.

  • A Chinese couple has been accused of stealing trade secrets

  • from a US Children's Hospital.

  • Authorities say the couple set up their own company in China

  • using stolen treatments for things like child liver cancer.

  • Nothing like profiting off the misery of children.

  • Just like mall Santas.

  • Bad news for Taiwan.

  • China has managed to poach yet another one of

  • the few remaining countries that recognized the island nation:

  • The Solomon Islands.

  • Now there are only 16 countries left that still have

  • official diplomatic ties with Taiwan.

  • Now, the US is reconsidering aid to Solomon Islands.

  • And according to Reuters,

  • Mike Pence has called off a meeting

  • with the country's prime minister.

  • Not that the US officially recognizes Taiwan, either.

  • But the US does sell weapons to Taiwan.

  • Lots of weapons.

  • And at the end of the day,

  • isn't that the truest form of recognition?

  • Behold, the Lotus Tower,

  • the tallest building in Sri Lanka.

  • Truly a magnificent sight.

  • Also magnificent:

  • How the Chinese state-owned contractor that built it

  • managed to steal 11 million dollars

  • of Sri Lankan state money through graft.

  • That's at least according to the current Sri Lankan president.

  • He blames the previous president,

  • who was in power when the theft allegedly occurred.

  • Of course, that previous president

  • called the accusations a horrendous insult...to China.

  • Yeah, how dare people ask where the money went!

  • And if you're wondering

  • didn't the Chinese Communist Party

  • ever learn than stealing was wrong?

  • Well, obviously the answer is no.

  • But now we know why.

  • According to Fox News,

  • the Communist Party has been replacing the 10 Commandments

  • with quotes from Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

  • It's not longer just the Good Book.

  • It's the Party Mandated book.

  • 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 the crowdfunding website Patreon.

  • Largezo asks,

  • How do you pronounce chinese names and places?

  • Do you use some guide and if so, why?

  • Ah, good question.

  • In the 1950s,

  • the Chinese government made a push to have

  • a single official romanized system for Chinese characters.

  • There have been several romanized systems of Chinese

  • over the centuries.

  • But the Communist Party revived a specific one called Pinyin.

  • That's why the name Peking

  • was officially changed to Beijing in English

  • even though the Chinese pronunciation didn't change.

  • Pinyin is what most people use these days

  • to pronounce Chinese names and places.

  • It makes it easier.

  • But it's still not easy.

  • Thanks for your question.

  • And if you have a question for me

  • you want to hear answered on the show,

  • sign up to join the China Uncensored 50 cent army,

  • by supporting the show with a dollar or more per episode.

  • Again, YouTube is demonetizing us so much

  • we would have to shut down the show if it weren't for your support.

  • And to everyone, thanks for watching!

  • Once again I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • See you next time.
