  • The US finally moves to extradite Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou.

  • China decides its courts are too independent.

  • And kidnapping?

  • The Chinese Communist Party wouldn't dream of it.

  • This is China Uncensored.

  • We all knew it was coming,

  • and it's finally happened.

  • The U.S. has told Canada to expect a formal request

  • to extradite Meng Wanzhou the detained CFO of Huawei.”

  • But that doesn't mean it's going to happen right away

  • or even at all.

  • Because if there's one thing the US government loves,

  • it's endless paperwork.

  • Back in December,

  • Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou,

  • the CFO of China's largest telecom company, Huawei.

  • It was at the request of the US.

  • Huawei has been accused of using a shell company

  • to violate US sanctions on Iran and possibly Syria.

  • Needless to say, after weeks calling for Meng's release,

  • the Chinese Communist Party was not too happy

  • with the idea of extradition to the US.

  • On Tuesday, Beijing shot back,

  • saying Canada should release Meng immediately

  • and accusing the two countries

  • of abusing their extradition treaty.

  • Canada and the United States arbitrarily

  • abused their bilateral extradition treaty

  • to seriously infringe upon a Chinese citizen's

  • security and legal rights.

  • We urge the Canadian side

  • to immediately release Ms. Meng Wanzhou

  • and earnestly safeguard her legitimate

  • and lawful rights and interests.”

  • Yeah!

  • She's entitled to legitimate and lawful rights!

  • In Canada, obviously, not in China.

  • No one has rights in China

  • especially not Canadians.

  • That's why the Chinese regime had no qualms

  • about detaining two Canadians,

  • and accusing them of spying...

  • based off what I'm sure is very solid evidence.

  • Their real mistake, of course,

  • was setting foot in mainland China in the first place.

  • On Monday,

  • 143 Western academics and diplomats

  • sent this open letter to Chinese leader Xi Jinping

  • urging him to release the Canadians.

  • And now I can name 143 more people

  • who should probably not set foot in mainland China.

  • Speaking of ensuring legitimate and lawful rights...

  • China's Supreme People's Court.

  • They've ruled that the whole Western model of judicial independence,

  • is bad.

  • They said China's courts should

  • Resolutely resist the influence of the West's

  • erroneous thought and mistaken viewpoints.”

  • Mistaken viewpoints like,

  • don't detain innocent people for political reasons.

  • The Chinese Communist Party controls the courts,

  • but that's not enough!

  • It's also looking for more ways to exert direct control over religions.

  • And what better way than rewriting the Bible

  • to be more in line withcorrect thinkingfrom the Party?

  • I talked about this in a recent episode.

  • And as a joke,

  • I read completely made-up quotes

  • from this completely made-up book.

  • At least, that's what I thought at the time.

  • But now I've learned

  • and this is true

  • that local officials in Henan Province

  • ordered [a Henan] church to wipe out the first Commandment,

  • 'Thou shalt have no other gods before me.'”

  • I guess they didn't get the hint when they told people

  • to replace pictures of Jesus with pictures of Xi Jinping.

  • Speaking of brainwashing,

  • more brainwashing!

  • Since the time of former Chinese leader Hu Jintao

  • you know, the one that we all forgot about

  • Chinese students have been forced to take

  • Current Affairs and Policiesclasses.

  • Well, China's Ministry of Education

  • has been pushing these classes even more recently.

  • The goal is tohelp college students understand

  • the situation at home and abroad

  • in the new era correctly.”

  • Peking University,

  • the Harvard of China,

  • has taken the lead.

  • They've opened an entire institute dedicated

  • to what's officially calledXi Jinping Thought on Socialism

  • with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.”

  • I get it.

  • You need an entire institute

  • to figure out what any of those words mean.

  • Fortunately, one Chinese student has dissected it.

  • “[He] told Radio Free Asia that the course

  • is actually 'brainwashing' education

  • in combination with current events.

  • He cited the US-China trade war as an example.

  • 'The course tells how the United States

  • is rude and unreasonable toward China.

  • It also preaches that the party is very great a

  • nd instills ideas about the party-state system

  • and about xenophobia.'”

  • Well obviously the Party is very great.

  • Only the very great need to forcibly remind you that they're very great.

  • And the Party is obviously very great

  • at disappearing people.

  • For instance, Chinese-Australian Writer Yang Hengjun,

  • who mysteriously vanished after getting off a plane in China last week.

  • Days later, Chinese authorities finally admitted they had detained Yang,

  • who is a blogger, novelist, and former Chinese diplomat.

  • They said it was because Yang wasendangering national security.”

  • It seems like Yang has become part of

  • the Chinese regime's hottest new trend:

  • hostage diplomacy.

  • Of course, the Communist Party kidnapping

  • citizens of other countries is not something new.

  • It's just been more noticeable lately.

  • So noticeable, that people tried to convince Yang

  • not to go back to China.

  • But he told his friend Dr. Feng Chongyi

  • that he would be ok,

  • because he had toned down his criticism of the Party.

  • Unfortunately for Yang,

  • the Chinese Communist Party can really hold a grudge.

  • Maybe Yang should have listened to Dr. Feng,

  • especially since Feng was detained in China back in 2017.

  • Make that 144 people who should not set foot in mainland China.

  • The Chinese-controlled city of Macau.

  • It's number one in the world when it comes to gambling...

  • And definitely when it comes to ugly architecture.

  • So it makes sense that Macau's crime syndicates

  • would also be number one.

  • Well, police say they've uncovered a 4.4 billion dollar

  • money laundering scheme.

  • So that's the ancient Chinese secret.

  • Money laundering is a big problem

  • for the Chinese Communist Party.

  • China's elite, including Party members,

  • are concerned that China's economy isn't doing so hot.

  • They want to get their money out.

  • And while there are a bunch of laws in place to stop them,

  • rich people always find a way.

  • And that way is Macau.

  • Or it was, until authorities found that a crime syndicate

  • was smuggling in machinesto allow gamblers

  • to secretly cash out their casino winnings

  • in Hong Kong dollars and Macanese patacas.”

  • This could be the beginning of

  • a more serious investigation into Macau's money laundering,

  • and why anyone would want Macanese patacas.

  • And across the bay from Macau is Hong Kong

  • the other special administrative region of China.

  • Hong Kong, of course,

  • has its own government and laws,

  • separate from the rest of China.

  • Now I know, you're worried that this is a problem

  • because sometimes Hong Kongers' thinking is too independent,

  • and not in line with the correct thinking for a new era.

  • But don't worry.

  • They're starting to rectify that.

  • The Hong Kong legislature is moving to make

  • disrespecting the Chinese national anthem a crime.

  • For far too long,

  • Hong Kongers have been openly negative

  • about the Chinese Communist Party.

  • For example by booing the Chinese national anthem

  • at sports matches.

  • The new bill proposes 3 years in jail

  • for dissing China's national anthem,

  • as well as a fine of over six thousand US dollars.

  • Or 51 thousand Macanese patacas,

  • if you're trying to get rid of those.

  • And yes, the proposed lawalso extends to schoolchildren,

  • including pupils of international schools,

  • who would be legally required to learn the anthem.”

  • Something fun to look forward to

  • if you're planning on studying in Hong Kong.

  • And before we go, now is the time

  • when I answer questions from you,

  • my loyal 50-cent army

  • fans of the show who support what we do

  • through the crowd funding website Patreon.

  • James Wallberg asks

  • “I know a lot of people are upset with Patreon and Paypal.

  • Are you planning on finding other methods of payment

  • for those who want to support China Uncensored

  • but no longer wish to use their services?”

  • Great question!

  • I know many of you

  • are concerned about using Patreon as a platform

  • after they kicked off several prominent YouTubers.

  • I of course don't approve of that kind of behavior.

  • So I can definitely appreciate where you're coming from.

  • However, the problem is China Uncensored

  • is already being squeezed by YouTube.

  • And Patreon is still the best way for us

  • to raise funds for the show.

  • I started to look into Patreon alternatives,

  • like SubscribeStar,

  • but guess what?

  • It doesn't always go well for alternatives.

  • And even though SubscribeStar is starting to resume payments,

  • it's too big a risk for us.

  • We are working on creating our own alternative,

  • but to do that, we still need funding.

  • And right now, Patreon is the best option for us.

  • You can visit our website to make a direct PayPal contribution,

  • but we don't have a good way of making sure you get rewards

  • like me answering your questions on the show like this.

  • So we prefer Patreon.

  • I know many of you have expressed you're not a fan of Patreon,

  • but for now, I'd ask you to hold out just a bit longer

  • for the sake of China Uncensored.

  • If you ditch Patreon,

  • it doesn't hurt Patreon much,

  • but it hurts China Uncensored a lot.

  • Thanks for you question and thanks for your support.

  • And to all you thanks for watching.

  • Once again I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • See you next time.

The US finally moves to extradite Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou.
