  • Problems at a Chinese nuclear reactor

  • A record number of Chinese jets harass Taiwan

  • And more arrests in Hong Kong

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

  • Welcome to China Uncensored.

  • I'm Chris Chappell.

  • Starting off our great week in China, there may have possibly been a leak at a nuclear

  • power plant.

  • French power group EDF said on Monday it had been informed of a build-up of inert gases

  • at its plant in China, and had called for a meeting with its Chinese partner.

  • CNN also reported that Framatome, the EDF unit which designed the reactor, had warned

  • of an "imminent radiological threat."

  • Okay, it is true there is a potentially dangerous issue at the Taishan Nuclear power plant.

  • But according to the Chinese Communist Party, everything is fine.

  • State-run China General Nuclear Power Group, the majority owner of the joint venture with

  • EDF said in a statement on its website on Sunday that operations at the nuclear power

  • station met safety rules and the surrounding environment is safe.

  • See, it's safe!

  • Would the Chinese Communist Party ever lie to the world to cover up a dangerous leak?

  • Yet despite the assurances, the US is apparently still looking into the nuclear plant leak.

  • The French company warned thatThe Chinese safety authority was raising the acceptable

  • limits for radiation detection outside the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong province

  • in order to avoid having to shut it down.”

  • See?

  • China doesn't have to lie about the data.

  • They can just change the definition of how much radiation is safe!

  • Problem solved.

  • But here's a hint that there may still be a small problem.

  • As CNN put it, “It is unusual that a foreign company, [Framatome], would unilaterally reach

  • out to the American government for help when its Chinese state-owned partner is yet to

  • acknowledge a problem exists.”

  • Yeah, especially when it's a French company.

  • Since when do the French ask for help from the Americans?

  • Ultimately, this situation is pretty typical for joint ventures in China.

  • The foreign company often realizes too late their Chinese counterparts aren't as honest

  • or cooperative as they'd like.

  • Especially when it has to do with a Chinese nuclear plant that was supposed to be a propaganda

  • symbol.

  • It wasthe first of its type in the world to enter operation in 2018, after delays hit

  • similar projects in Finland and France”.

  • Is it possible that the Chinese Communist Party may have cut some corners to get this

  • nuclear plant up and running?

  • Nah.

  • Speaking of cutting corners, a gas pipeline in China exploded.

  • It destroyed a busy market in Shiyan city in central Hubei Province.

  • As of this recording, Chinese state state media say 25 people have died.

  • But we all know how honest China is about statistics.

  • Especially when it involves local government screwups.

  • But as I said in a recent episode about enormous sinkholes opening up throughout China,

  • the Chinese Communist Party tends to care more about the look of a city than the lives

  • inside the city.

  • Corners get cut.

  • And coming up after the break, the G7 tries to counter China.

  • Welcome back.

  • The G7 is a group of the most powerful economies.

  • They had their annual meeting and awkward family photo last week.

  • A big part of that meeting was about countering China.

  • We did a full rundown of their plan on our other channel, America Uncovered.

  • Yes, we have another channel.

  • But the G7 this year also talked about China issues that it ignored in the pastTaiwan,

  • the East and South China Seas, and human rights abuses in Xinjiang and Hong Kong.

  • Obviously China is not happy.

  • Foreign Ministry Spokesman Zhao Lijian said, “The U.S. is ill and very ill indeed.

  • The G-7 had better take its pulse and come up with a prescription.”

  • That sounds like a swipe at President Biden being old and confused.

  • But the Communist Party isn't just upset at the G7, they're also mad at NATO.

  • NATO called China a global security challenge.

  • Something they haven't done before.

  • We're talking baby steps here.

  • NATO only expressed concern about China's growing military.

  • While NATO still considers Russia a threat, China merely presents challenges.

  • But even that was enough to infuriate the Chinese regime.

  • Which responded thatChina is actually a force for peace but will defend itself if

  • threatened.”

  • Which is like a burglar saying he's all about protecting private property, and if

  • you try to take anything from his sack he'll knife you.

  • China once again proved how devoted it was to peace this week, by sending a record 28

  • fighter jets toward Taiwan.

  • That was in response to G7 leaders calling for a peaceful resolution to the Taiwan-China

  • issue.

  • The problem is, the Chinese Communist Party is never about peace.

  • It's about leaving the world in pieces.

  • Meanwhile, the US sent the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan to the South China Sea, along

  • with two guided missile destroyers.

  • The US said it was part of routine freedom of navigation operations in international

  • waters.

  • Chinese state media called itcold war baiting”.

  • Unlike flying fighter jets toward a country they've threatened to invade.

  • Last month, a botched marathon in China resulted in 21 deaths.

  • An investigation was launched into why organizers ignored extreme weather warnings.

  • And now the Communist Party chief who was responsible has mysteriously died.

  • Well it wasn't that mysterious.

  • He fell from a building.

  • Don't worry, local police say it wasn't homicide.

  • But they also aren't saying it was suicide.

  • How many other options are there?

  • Was he just walking on the roof of a building and slipped?

  • Speaking of mysterious deaths, a top Communist official at a University in Shanghai was stabbed

  • to death.

  • Yes, universities in China are all overseen by a Party official.

  • This one was stabbed to death by a fellow professor.

  • But details are sparse because Communist Party run media don't really like talking about

  • Communist Party officials being murdered.

  • Instead they prefer to focus on how much the Chinese people love the Communist Party!

  • After all, “International polls have indicated over and again that Chinese people's approval

  • ratings of the CPC and the government rank the highest worldwide.”

  • Wow, how do they manage?

  • Well, the secret is, “EVERYTHING IS FOR THE PEOPLE.”

  • And yes, state media wrote that in all caps.

  • Speaking of communist run newspapers, the New York Times!

  • (They conducted a rare interview with the Chinese scientist potentially involved in

  • the coronavirus lab leak.

  • The virologist is Dr. Shi Zhengli.

  • She's known as China's bat woman for her research on bat coronaviruses.

  • Like the kind she was doing at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

  • That was getting US government funding approved by Dr. Fauci.

  • To do research making coronaviruses more contagious and deadly.

  • Did I mention the Wuhan Institute of Virology had known safety issues?

  • Or that some scientists have been saying for over a year that there are signs the coronavirus

  • was engineered?

  • Anyway, as the New York Times says, “The idea that the virus may have escaped from

  • a lab had long been widely dismissed by scientists as implausible and shunned by others for its

  • connection with former President Donald J. Trump.”

  • But now that Trump is impeached, and out of office, and banned from social media, can

  • we *please* start investigating the truth of a deadly virus that was never actually

  • connected to Trump in the first place?

  • It turns out, still no.

  • That's why the New York Times interviewed the virologist at the center of all thisto

  • dismiss the idea once and for all.

  • Dr. Shi has denied these accusations, and now finds herself defending the reputation

  • of her lab and, by extension, that of her country.”

  • You see, saying the coronavirus may have leaked from a lab is racist and xenophobic.

  • The New York Times says Dr. Shicould barely contain her frustration”.

  • “I don't know how the world has come to this, constantly pouring filth on an innocent

  • scientist.”

  • I'm glad the New York Times is still doing the propaganda work of the Chinese Communist

  • Party.

  • But you know who isn't doing the CCP's work?

  • Romania.

  • They just banned Chinese telecom Huawei from the country's 5G network.

  • Every US administration, from Obama, to Trump to Biden has warned about the risk of Huawei.

  • The fact that these three guys agree on anything tells you something.

  • And more and more countries have been joining the US in banning Huawei from 5G networks.

  • It's part of what the US State Department calls the Clean Network.

  • Just another Trump era initiative the Biden Administration is carrying on.

  • And...Hong Kong police have arrested more democracy advocates.

  • I'll tell you why after the break.

  • Welcome back.

  • Over in Hong Kong, people celebrated the two year anniversary of the 2019 anti-extradition

  • protest.

  • It launched months of protests against the Chinese Communist Party and its growing control

  • of Hong Kong.

  • And of course ended with the Hong Kong national security law.

  • Which was pretty much everything they were protesting against.

  • Which is why this anniversary was celebrated by police arresting people for commemorating

  • it.

  • But that's not all!

  • Hong Kong police have had a busy week.

  • Hundreds of police raided the offices of the Apple Daily, a pro-democracy newspaper.

  • They also arrested the editor-in-chief and other executives.

  • Police said Apple Daily was violating the national security law bypublishing articles

  • which called for sanctions on Beijing or [Hong Kong].”

  • When other media tried to ask the police which Apple Daily articles violated the national

  • security law, the police refused to answer.

  • It's almost like they're trying to make all Hong Kong media afraid of publishing things

  • that could get them arrested.

  • Police also froze Apple Daily's assets.

  • So it's not clear how long the paper can keep going.

  • But Apple Daily defiantly printed half a million copies the day after the police raid, with

  • the message thateveryone has to hang in there.”

  • Meanwhile, Jimmy Lai , the founder of Apple Daily, is being put on trial.

  • He faces life imprisonment.

  • For what?

  • Why, for violating the national security law.

  • Somehow.

  • Something to do with colluding with foreigners.

  • To do something.

  • Look, they don't need a reason.

  • On the bright side, the American anti-Communist organization, the Victims of Communism Memorial

  • Foundation , awarded Jimmy Lai a top honor for his lifelong commitment to democracy in

  • Hong Kong.

  • Hopefully he can accept the award in person one day.

  • But if he ends up in prison for life, they also will present Jimmy with this very nice

  • cake.

  • Jimmy, we put a special ingredient in the cake.

  • But I'm happy to say I won't need to bake a cake for Hong Kong activist Agnes Chow . She's

  • been released from prison.

  • She never should have been in prison in the first place.

  • That's according to the CongressionalExecutive Commission on China , a bipartisan group of

  • U.S. lawmakers.

  • They tweeted “A more appropriate action to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of 2019

  • Hong Kong protests would have been to drop charges against those who participated in

  • those protests & release all other political prisoners.”

  • Which sounds to me like...these hostile foreign forces have been colluding with everyone in

  • Hong Kong!

  • China's gonna have to lock up everybody now!

  • I've got a lot of baking to do.

  • But first, it's time to answer a question from a member of the China Uncensored 50 Cent

  • Army, fans who support us and our efforts to expose the truth about the Chinese Communist

  • Party, by contributing through crowd funding website Patreon.

  • Mika Ranta asksThat sinkhole looks like PhotoShop or something.”

  • Ah, Mika is referring to this thumbnail image from our recent episode China's MASSIVE

  • Sinkholes Are Swallowing Cars and Buses.

  • A lot of people asked me that actually.

  • It does look photoshopped, doesn't it?

  • After all, it's kind of hard to believe this is real.

  • It's real.

  • Sometimes things that happen in China are beyond belief.

  • Thanks for your question and your support, Mika.

  • And a big thank you to everyone who supports China Uncensored on Patreon.
