  • Is China America's Mortal Enemy?

  • What is Zoom doing with your data?

  • And Chinese military aggression ramps up

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

  • Welcome to China Uncensored, I'm  Chris Chappell. YouTube has been  

  • secretly unsubscribing people again, so make  sure you're subscribed, smash that like button,  

  • and check back often. Because YouTube probably  isn't telling you when we have new episodes

  • Merry Christmas. China is America's mortal enemy.

  • At least, according to White  House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro.

  • This is a strategic rival, but it is also  

  • increasingly a mortal enemy. They're coming  at us Pete. In so many different ways

  • I think he means that they  were already a mortal enemy,  

  • like Scorpion. But now they're an  even scarier mortal enemy, like Goro.

  • But what kind of different ways is China  coming at the US? Well, let's have a look.

  • You might have heard of an app called ZoomYou've most likely used it to replace normal  

  • human interaction, thanks to the coronavirus  pandemic, that the Chinese Communist Party  

  • is responsible for. And it turns out, Zoom  has been working very closely with Beijing.

  • Federal prosecutors are accusing a Zoom  executive of working with Chinese government  

  • to surveil users and suppress video calls.

  • Zoom says they deliver happiness.

  • That motto is a lie. Whenever we use  Zoom, all of us are deeply unhappy.

  • Especially if you worked with this guy.

  • But you know who is happy? Zoom CEO Eric  Yuan, who's now worth 3 billion dollars.

  • But when prosecutors accuse a Zoom executive  of working with the Chinese government,  

  • they don't mention CEO Eric Yuan.

  • Instead, they allege a China-based  executive with Zoom named Xinjiang Jin,  

  • worked with the Chinese government  to terminate Americans' accounts and  

  • disrupt video calls about the 1989 massacre of  pro-democracy activists in Tiananmen Square”.

  • You might remember this because  it was a big scandal back in June.  

  • We interviewed Tiananmen activist Zhou  Fengsuo, whose Zoom meeting was shut down

  • Zoom at the time said it was just following  local laws. But that's not all that Jin did

  • The Zoom executivemonitored Zoom's video  system for discussions of political and  

  • religious topics deemed unacceptable by China's  ruling Communist Party, the complaint states,  

  • and he gave government officials  the names, email addresses  

  • and other sensitive information of  users, even those outside China.”

  • That's right, he sent user data from outside  China to the Chinese Communist Party.  

  • This is something that Zoom  publicly said it did not do

  • But it gets worse. On top of that lie, Jin also  worked with Chinese police and state security  

  • to create fake evidence to  get these users banned

  • What kind of fake evidence? Oh you knowthings like they were involved in terrorism,  

  • inciting violence, and of  course, child pornography.

  • And the Chinese Communist Party also used the  data that Zoom gave them to detain at least  

  • one dissident and threaten the  family of another dissident

  • I'm guessing those people don't feel  like Zoom really delivered happiness.  

  • More like delivered a crackdown  from an authoritarian regime

  • So what is Zoom doing now? Well, it's clear from  the criminal complaint that Jin was working with  

  • other Zoom employees in the US to ban  users and meetings. So Zoom fired Jin  

  • and put other employees on leave, and they say  they've launched an internal investigation

  • Zoom has pledged to do better, but at the  same time the company is still minimizing what  

  • happened. For example, Zoom says that they did not  provide the Chinese government with the user data  

  • of non-China users…”with the exception of user  data for fewer than ten individual users.”

  • Yeah we totally didn't give the Chinese  Communist Party user data except for when  

  • we did. But let's not focus on that partDid we mention that we deliver happiness?

  • So you can see why Trade Advisor Peter  Navarro says China is coming after us in  

  • so many different ways. More came out  this week than just the Zoom fiasco.

  • The Chinese regime has been engaging in mass  surveillance of Americans' mobile phones.  

  • That's according to a new report by Exigent  Media, a Washington based cyber security firm.

  • They found state-owned  telecom operator China Unicom,  

  • was the leading source of attacks against U.S.  mobile users over 3G and 4G networks in 2018.

  • So clearly, the only solution isHuawei 5G.

  • But if this is mortal Kombat  

  • the US is fighting back. Hey, Mortal  Kombat prepared us for the coronavirus!

  • Last week, the US added more than 60 Chinese  military linked companies to a blacklist

  • The Commerce Department points to  “China's military-civil fusion”.

  • That's basically a new policy in China that  means any so-called private company in China  

  • has to turn over the goods to  the Communist Party's military.

  • Meaning, there's no such thing  as a private company in China.

  • And for more on how the Chinese Communist  Party controls everything in China,  

  • stay tuned after this short break.

  • Welcome back.

  • The Chinese Communist Party controls  all aspects of Chinese society.  

  • And the Party is more than  happy to have the people  

  • make some sacrifices on the Party's behalf.  I'm sure it's what the people would want.

  • Millions are having their electricity rationed.

  • Entire cities have gone dark.  

  • Officials in at least three provinceswheretotal of more than 150 million people livehave  

  • issued orders limiting energy usewarning of potential coal shortages.”

  • Wow, that's rough. Maybe the Party shouldn't  have banned coal imports from Australia?

  • Power shortages will obviously  make a lot of Chinese people angry.  

  • But the Communist Party knows how to take  care of that. By distracting them with war!

  • Chinese jets joined Russia in entering  South Korea's air defense zone.

  • This isn't entirely new. “In July last year,  

  • South Korean warplanes fired hundreds  of warning shots toward Russian military  

  • aircraft on a joint air patrol with Chinawhen they entered South Korean airspace.”

  • China has denied any wrongdoing. Because invading  other countries' airspace feels so right.

  • And why have one battle  front when you can have two?  

  • Taiwan had to scramble ships and aircraft  as a Chinese carrier passed by the island.

  • Taiwan's ministry said  that six warships and eight  

  • air force aircraft were sent to 'stand guardand monitor the Chinese ships' movements.”

  • Alright, this game isn't fun anymore.

  • Considering how openly hostile the  Chinese Communist Party is becoming, it's  

  • not that surprising to hear that Japan  has approved a record military budget,  

  • with new stealth jets and long range missiles.

  • And this is also interesting because it  shows that current Japanese Prime Minster  

  • Yoshihide Suga is continuing the hard line  approach of his predecessor Shinzo Abe.

  • Japanese military expansion is controversial  in Asia because...remember Japanese aggression  

  • ahead of World War II? But the possibility of  Chinese Communist aggression in World War III  

  • might be a little more pressing  to countries in the region now.

  • Now over to Canada. Earlier this year,  

  • a Chinese company made an attempt to buy a gold  mine in Nunavut, Canada's northernmost province.

  • Weird, because the current price  of gold makes that goldmine  

  • unprofitable. But..the mine just happens to  be close to a useful arctic shipping port.  

  • And also just a few hundred  miles from a NORAD base.

  • But good news: This week the Canadian government  

  • blocked the takeover of the Nunavut  gold mine on national security grounds.

  • I guess they were havingnone of it.”

  • This high quality humor is why  you watch China Uncensored.  

  • And if you want to learn more about  what's happening with Canada and China,  

  • watch our next China Uncensored episode.  I'll bePoutinit on this channel Monday.

  • Admit it. You love me.

  • Things aren't looking good  for Chinese tech giants.  

  • You may remember last month when China  blocked the IPO of Ant Financial.

  • That was after Ant Financial founder Jack Ma  

  • mouthed off about his displeasure  toward Chinese regulators.

  • Which is why Xi Jinping saw it personally  that Ant Financial's IPO would be blocked.

  • That led to concerns the Communist Party would  start a major crackdown on tech companies.  

  • And... it's happening

  • That includes Alibaba and Tencent. This  is on top of anti-monopoly guidelines  

  • the Party made last month targeting  some of these major tech companies

  • And now, Jack Ma is singing  a slightly different tune

  • Because, say it with methere  is no private business in China.

  • And now I'll answer a question from one of you,  

  • a fan who supports China Uncensored  on the crowd funding website Patreon.

  • Logan asks, “Any luck finding a merchandise  store yet? I want a Xi the Pooh shirt.”

  • Oh, you mean you want a t-shirt with this on  it? I'm hoping a lot of you watching would  

  • like a t-shirt like this. We were selling this  shirt earlier in the year on Teespring, but  

  • they permanently shut us down. Imagine that

  • But many of you suggested we reach out  to Bunker Branding for merchandise.  

  • And I'm happy to say that is moving forwardSadly we missed the Christmas rush, but  

  • very soon, we will finally be  offering merchandise. So stay tuned!

  • And as always a big shout out to everyone who  supports China Uncensored on Patreon. With  

  • YouTube demonetizing us and randomly unsubscribing  people, we would have had to shut the show down if  

  • it weren't for your support. If you'd like to join  what I call the China Uncensored 50 cent army,  

  • head over to Patreon.com/ChinaUnensored  to learn how you can support the show.

  • And in case you think we missed something big in  this episode, we actually recorded it two days  

  • ago so Seamus didn't have to video edit over  Christmas. The Chinese Communist Party often  

  • does horrible things right around Christmas  so that the Western media don't cover it.  

  • If that happened this year, you'll just have  to wait till next week to hear about it.

  • Once again I'm Chris Chappell. Merry  Christmas to all, and to all, a good night.
