  • China Threatens the Biden Administration

  • With Four PolicyRed Lines

  • Plus, China's dangerous monkey business

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

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

  • Communist Party has drawn some red  lines for the Biden Administration

  • But before we begin, YouTube is demonetizing  us and secretly unsubscribing people from this  

  • channel. You can help us stand up to censorship  and ensure you get notified of new episodes  

  • by supporting us on Patreon.com/China  Uncensored, for as little as a dollar an episode.

  • So as I said, China has drawn some red lines  for the US. Four red lines, to be exact. These  

  • are demands the Communist Party is making  of the Biden Administration. As my favorite  

  • Chinese state-run media, the Global Times, calls  them, “'the red lines' that can't be crossed.”

  • Those red lines were drawn by Chinese  Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi  

  • at a video conference earlier this week.

  • And it's kind of confusing. Because they're not  really red lines that can't be crossed. They're  

  • actually four things that the Chinese Communist  Party demands that the US government do

  • The US must end support for TaiwanHong Kong, Xinjiang, and Tibet;  

  • resume the U.S.-China dialogue on all levelsend the tariffs on Chinese products and  

  • sanctions on Chinese enterprises; and remove  all restrictions on China's state-run media  

  • and cultural entities such  as the Confucius Institutes.

  • First, I feel like this is cheatingThis is way more than four things.

  • Second, this sounds like when kids writeChristmas list for Santa and they put four  

  • ponies on the list. They know they're  not going to get four ponies. But maybe  

  • they could get one pony. Or  at least a My Little Pony.

  • So will Biden make Xi Jinping  a Brony? We don't know yet

  • The reason that the Chinese regime can come  out and make these red-line demands now  

  • is that Biden has only been in office for  a month, and he hasn't clarified where he  

  • stands on a lot of these issues. And it's not  just China that wants to know. For instance,  

  • the Ugyhur rights group, the East  Turksitan Government in Exile,  

  • has called on Biden to clarify his  stance on the genocide of Ugyhur Muslims.

  • That was in response to these comments  Biden made on a CNN town hall

  • I point out to him: No American President  can be sustained as a President if he doesn't  

  • reflect the values of the United StatesAnd  so the idea I'm not going to speak out against  

  • what he's doing in Hong Kong, what he's doing  with the Uyghurs in western mountains of  

  • China and Taiwan, trying to end the One  China policy by making it forceful — I  

  • saidand by thehe said hehe gets  itCulturally, there are different  

  • norms that each country and they —  their leadersare expected to follow.

  • Those comments caused a lot of controversyConservative media had a field day.

  • For more on that, check out this  episode of America Uncovered.

  • And former President Trump is also calling into  question Biden's resolve on China. Here he is  

  • in an interview with Newsmax, responding  to a question about the Biden Town Hall.

  • His family's involved with the  Chinese, certainly, a long time and  

  • a lot of money. The whole thing is ridiculousWe had China exactly where we wanted them.”

  • Biden has not clarified his China policy yetBut is it as bad as some people make it seem?  

  • More on that after the break.

  • Welcome back.

  • So some people are concerned  about Biden's China policy

  • However, Biden might just keep  Trump's China tariffs in place

  • And Biden's Secretary of State Antony Blinken  has been critical of the Chinese regime.  

  • He's called out the genocide of Ugyhurs  in Xinjiang. And in a recent interview,  

  • he also said China needs to come  clean on the coronavirus pandemic.

  • He said, “It requires countries to be transparent;  

  • it requires them to share information; it requires  them to give access to international experts at  

  • the beginning of an outbreakthings thatunfortunately, we haven't seen from China.”

  • And State Department spokesman Ned Price  expressed concern about a new Chinese law  

  • thatexplicitly allows its coast  guard to fire on foreign vessels.”

  • Price said, “We are further concerned  that China may invoke this new law  

  • to assert its unlawful maritime  claims in the South China Sea.”

  • So at least as far as talking points go, the  Biden Administration doesn't seem to care  

  • too much about China's four red lines. But it's  unclear what kind of actions they plan to take

  • But the good news is that right now standing  

  • up to the Chinese Communist  Party has bipartisan support.

  • This week, US Senate Majority Leader Chuck  Schumer said he wants a bill to counter China

  • Specifically he told lawmakersto  start drafting a legislative package  

  • to out-compete China and  create new American jobs.”

  • That sounds nice and all, Mr. Schumer. But  with a tough on China stance, have you ever  

  • thought about all the wealthy Americans  who might lose their investments in China?

  • Meanwhile, it turns out China gave US  Diplomats anal Covid testsin error”.

  • In error?! A butt dial is an error. A butt  swab isn't something that just happens.

  • Sorry, I was going for your  nose but then I slipped.”

  • The US State Department has now  assured everyone that it iscommitted  

  • to preserving the 'dignity' of American diplomats  

  • and their families, consistent with the  Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.”

  • And I'll be back with more probing  news after this final commercial break.

  • Welcome back

  • According to an Israeli cyber firm, a Chinese  hacking tool was modeled on NSA spyware.

  • It says that the Chinese tool was a copy of a tool  used by an NSA group called the Equation Group.  

  • So China essentially pirated  a hacking tool from the NSA.

  • The Tel Aviv-based firm  hypothesized that Chinese spies  

  • may have obtained the code during an Equation  Group operation against a target in China,  

  • captured it while monitoring an Equation  Group attack against a third party,  

  • or acquired it during a Chinese  operation against the Equation Group.”

  • So basically everyone is terrible in this story.

  • And speaking of everyone is  terrible, UK Prime Minister  

  • Boris Johnson is rejecting a boycott of the  Beijing Olympics despite all the genocide.

  • According to the BBC,  

  • Mr Johnson said the UK was 'leading international  action in the UN to hold China to account.'”

  • International action in the UN? So, Boris  Johnson is planning to accomplish nothing

  • Sure, his government is demanding  China give the United Nations  

  • urgent and unfetteredaccess  to Xinjiang to investigate.

  • But China is treating that about as seriously  as Johnson is treating the Olympic boycott.

  • While we're on the topic of getting  the UN to investigate stuff,  

  • let's talk about the World Health Organization.

  • Everyone's favorite international health  organization just got a bit scummier

  • The Guardian recently obtained an internal  World Health Organization document that admitted  

  • China did little to hunt for  the origins of the coronavirus.

  • That's the kind of information  that would have saved lives.  

  • And yet the WHO spent months praising  the Chinese Communist Party publicly

  • If I had Covid-19, I'd want  to be treated in China.”

  • I'm so glad Biden announced he wants to  keep the US as the WHO's biggest funder.

  • Now this will shock you, but the Chinese  Communist Party has betrayed the Vatican.

  • Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

  • Is probably something that  the Pope would never say

  • You see, the Vatican and the Chinese Communist  Party have argued for years over who has the  

  • right to appoint Catholic Bishops in China. The  Vatican thinks it's a job for the Catholic Church.  

  • The Chinese Communist Party thinks it's a job for  the atheist Chinese Communist Party. Makes sense

  • But after careful negotiation, the Pope  agreed to a deal with the Chinese regime.  

  • What was the deal? Well, the  details were never made public

  • But I'm guessing the Chinese regime  has broken whatever agreement they had.  

  • According to new rules that  will take effect on May 1,  

  • China's state-run Catholic Church and  bishops' conference will select, approve,  

  • and ordain episcopal candidateswith no mention  of the Vatican's involvement in the process.”

  • You'd think the Pope, as the head  of the Catholic Churchwould  

  • know that deals with the Devil  usually work out in the Devil's favor.

  • But I guess the Holy See didn't see it coming

  • Last week, the Chinese Communist Party admitted  that at least 4 Chinese soldiers died during a  

  • border clash with India last year.    

  • And this week, China detainedpeople for insulting those soldiers.

  • And by insulting, they mean they did things  like questioning China's official death toll.  

  • And they're getting up to 15 days in jail for it.

  • But they're getting off  easy. Because back in 2018,  

  • China passed a law that bans people from  “insulting or slandering heroes and martyrs”.

  • At the time, it was a civil law. But next  month, it will become a criminal law.  

  • And the penalty goes up to three years in jail.

  • So don't try to sell Chairman Meow merchandise  in China. The penalty could be cat-astrophic.

  • A great US weakness has been  revealed by the coronavirus pandemic.

  • We were unprepared for it. Not only  did the Chinese Communist Party hide  

  • the severity of the coronavirus in  order to hoard medical supplies...

  • but they also ensured a shortage  of test subjects for coronavirus  

  • research. And by test subjects, I mean monkeys.

  • Yes, China banned the export of monkeys and other  wildlife just when the world needed it most.

  • You see, as the New York Times  says, “The world needs monkeys,  

  • whose DNA closely resembles that of humans, to  develop Covid-19 vaccines. But a global shortage,  

  • resulting from the unexpected demand caused by  the pandemic, has been exacerbated by a recent ban  

  • on the sale of wildlife from China, the  leading supplier of the lab animals.”

  • Wait, China is the world's leading supplier  of lab animals? Not only do they dominate  

  • the medical equipment market. They  also dominate the monkey market!

  • This ain't no monkey business. Okay, it  technically is. But the US is taking it seriously.

  • The latest shortage has revived talk  about creating a strategic monkey reserve.”

  • So this is how it starts.

  • But this is actually very similar to how the  US has an emergency stockpile of oil and grain.

  • In other words, President BidenBuild that strategic monkey reserve!

  • Strategic Monkey Reserve will also  be the name of my new rock band.

  • And now it's time for me to answer questions from  a member of the China Uncensored 50 Cent Army,  

  • fans who support China Uncensored on  the crowd funding website Patreon.

  • Bill Hanna asks, “Hi Chris, love your channel.   China was the first recipient of a Tesla Giga  

  • factory outside of the US and competes directly  with local Electric Vehicle manufacturers...Xpeng  

  • is one such competitor that haslaw suit pending about IP theft.   

  • What is the "Un-censored" view of the CCP's  real long term view of this relationship.??

  • Yes Elon Musk seems to have  a rather rosy view of China.

  • And guess how that's working out for him?

  • That was from earlier this month. And  this is pretty typical of what happens  

  • to big foreign companies when they go to China.  

  • The Communist Party opens the door, welcomes them  in, and then steals their intellectual property,  

  • makes a Chinese knockoff, and then uses  regulation to crush the foreign company.

  • Now I don't know if that's what happened  with the Tesla factory. But I wouldn't  

  • be surprised if Elon Musk someday finds himself  cursing China's sudden but inevitable betrayal.

  • Thanks for your question Bill.

  • And thank you for watching.
