  • On this episode of China Uncensored,

  • China tells the US,

  • you kids get off my territorial waters!

  • Nothing like a little public humiliation

  • to encourage people to pay their debts.

  • And finally Hong Kong just went Hong Wrong...again

  • This is China Uncensored.

  • Hi, welcome to China Uncensored,

  • I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • In our top story,

  • yes China and the US are both concerned

  • about North Korea.

  • But they're still also maybe slightly worried

  • about each other.

  • Kind of like when the X-Men

  • have to team up with Magneto

  • to save mutantkind.

  • That ends perfectly well, right?

  • On Tuesday,

  • a US warship sailed through the South China Sea,

  • close to a string of reefs and shoals

  • called the Paracel Islands.

  • Now China says those reefs

  • are Chinese territory.

  • Vietnam says they're Vietnamese territory.

  • The US says they're in international waters

  • and if you have a problem with that,

  • come argue with our warship.

  • The Chinese Communist Party was not pleased.

  • And this is a particularly sensitive time.

  • Next week is the 19th Party Congress,

  • a once every five year meeting

  • of top Communist Party leaders.

  • It's a huge propaganda event,

  • and the Party likes to look strong.

  • Rise and shine, Xi Jinping!

  • I would not want to be the cameraman who filmed that

  • and released it to the world.

  • But you know what else

  • makes the CCP look even weaker

  • than the core leader asleep on the job?

  • A US warship challenging their territorial claims.

  • Like it does on a regular basis.

  • The Chinese regime may not be happy about it.

  • But they'd better play nice,

  • because Donald Trump is coming to town next month.

  • Trump is planning to make his first presidential visit there in November.

  • I'm sure by then the whole sailing a warship

  • through Chinese-slash-international waters thing

  • will have blown over.

  • That US warship isn't coming back

  • until probably a month or two after Trump's visit.

  • And on to lighter issues:

  • North Korea's nuclear weapons.

  • Trump has been trying to pressure the Chinese regime

  • to help stop North Korea.

  • Meanwhile, Chinese state-run media is asking

  • the US and North Korea to justcool it, ok?”

  • But the reason they're asking everyone to calm down

  • could be more about the Chinese regime's embarrassment.

  • Because it turns out,

  • they don't have as much power over North Korea

  • as they'd like the world to think they do.

  • But they also don't want the US to invade of North Korea.

  • Then China would have the US military

  • right up against the Chinese border.

  • Plus in the South China Sea.

  • That's why the Chinese military has been getting...

  • a facelift, ahead of the Party Congress.

  • I hope it's better than Joan Rivers' facelift.

  • Seriously, though -

  • Chinese leader Xi Jinping has spent the past several years

  • purging political rivals in the military.

  • In fact,

  • there's been a huge turnover of top military officials.

  • Xi's also attempting to transform the PLA

  • into a streamlined modern military.

  • This includes becoming a global arms dealer.

  • We'll have more on that later.

  • But at least when it comes to military drones,

  • President Trump is looking to counter China.

  • China wants to dominate the 10-billion-dollar

  • global drone market,

  • but Trump wants to put America first

  • in the exporting of killer drones.

  • Washington will also seek to renegotiate

  • a 1987 missile-control pact

  • with the aim of loosening international restrictions

  • on U.S. exports of unmanned aircraft.”

  • Whether China is going to be successful

  • at truly transforming their military

  • is hard to tell.

  • But one thing is clear:

  • It's Taiwan's military that the rest of the world

  • needs to look out for.

  • The Chinese Communist Party is no stranger

  • to using parades to showcase its military.

  • But nothing can compare to the parade

  • Taiwan just held for its National Day.

  • I think we all might need a second

  • to absorb that more fully.

  • Yes, if ever you wanted more proof

  • that Taiwan and China are very different countries,

  • just think about whether their soldiers

  • look like they want to kill you

  • or choreograph dances with you.

  • Speaking of things under threat in China:

  • cash.

  • Gone are the days of paying with paper money,

  • like some old fogey.

  • Or credit cards,

  • like some loser from the 2000s.

  • In China,

  • it's all the rage now to pay with your mobile phone.

  • Mobile payment volume in the country

  • more than doubled to $5 trillion in 2016.”

  • Yes, apparently China found a use for QR codes.

  • Why has paying with your phone

  • become so popular in China?

  • It could be convenience.

  • It could also be

  • that it gives Chinese companies like Tencent,

  • access to hordes of personal data.

  • That data can then be shared with the Chinese government.”

  • Or maybe it's a little of both.

  • Who says you can't have oppression and convenience?

  • But when talking about convenient payments,

  • you have to talk about the most convenient payment method of all

  • not paying.

  • China is plagued by big companies

  • with connections to local governments

  • running up huge debts and then never paying them back.

  • Well, that's about to change.

  • Haha, not really.

  • But what is changing is how the Chinese regime

  • will go after small time debtors.

  • Down with the underdog!

  • Punish the poor!

  • Prepare to be publically shamed!

  • The CCP has told local authorities

  • to establish online platforms to expose debtors

  • who fail to honor their credit obligations.”

  • For quite some time now,

  • there's been a trend in China of using public humiliation

  • to go after individuals who can't pay their debts.

  • Billboards that name names.

  • Local officials who will bombard debtors

  • with phone messages telling them to pay up.

  • Blacklisting them from getting on planes

  • and high speed trains.

  • Public humiliation, really,

  • is a proud tradition of the Chinese Communist Party,

  • dating back to the dunce caps

  • of the Cultural Revolution.

  • But the days of being humiliated

  • in front of a crowd are gone.

  • Now, you can be humiliated

  • in front of the entire country!

  • Because authorities said the online shaming platforms

  • should bemaintained by local news organizations.”

  • And who needs rule of law

  • when you've got trial by media.

  • In other news,

  • if you've been watching China Uncensored for a while,

  • you'll know we've made two trips to Hong Kong.

  • Once in 2014 to cover the Umbrella Movement.

  • And just last year

  • to interview activists like Joshua Wong.

  • The two of us are ready for Broadway!

  • If they hadn't put Joshua in jail.

  • Times are changing in Hong Kong.

  • The Chinese regime recently rejected

  • the joint declaration that is the basis for Hong Kong freedoms

  • denied in the Mainland.

  • And of course expelling democratically elected lawmakers

  • because the Communist Party doesn't like them.

  • Well, most recently,

  • British activist and friend of the show Benedict Rogers

  • was denied entry into Hong Kong.

  • Which like many heavy-handed things

  • done by the CCP,

  • will totally not backfire on them.

  • Like by causing huge amounts of negative publicity.

  • Or inspiring Rogers to set up a new NGO

  • that will monitor Hong Kong's human rights situation.

  • Is it a coincidence that Rogers,

  • who is vocal in criticizing China

  • and advocating for democracy in Hong Kong”,

  • was stopped at the Hong Kong airport

  • just a week before the CCP's 19th Party Congress?

  • Not sure,

  • but I have a feeling I won't be able to do any

  • on the ground reporting about it in Hong Kong.

  • Shelley, would you like to go?

  • No?

  • Sure you would.

  • And coming up after the break,

  • just when you thought lasting peace

  • between India and China had been achieved,

  • India's defense minister does the unthinkable.

  • What are you doing still here?

  • The show's over!

  • I know, you're not ready to say goodbye.

  • Okay, go over to china Uncensored.tv.

  • There you'll see more great episodes of China Uncensored,

  • including full half hour episodes

  • you won't see anywhere else.
