  • Flooding in China sparks a massive explosion

  • A monkey virus kills

  • And China is buying up American farmland

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

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

  • Massive flooding is once again devastating China.  

  • At least 33 people have died in  Henan province, in central China.

  • Chinese state-run media have called it  the heaviest rain there in 1000 years.

  • Henan experienced almost a year's  worth of rainfall in three days.

  • How severe is the flooding? Pretty severe.

  • Cars were being swept away like leaves.

  • I'd be a little more freaked  out if I were this guy

  • And you may remember the problem China  has with sinkholes from a recent episode.

  • Unfortunately, the flooding has not helped.

  • Also, apparently floodwaters  can make factories explode.

  • This is what's left of an aluminium alloy plant.

  • It was quite the explosion.

  • And it could be seen from quite a distance. But that's not even as scary as what happened to a  

  • subway line in the city of Zhengzhou, the  capital of Henan. After water burst through  

  • a retaining wall near a subway stationwater started pouring into the tunnels.

  • People were trapped in flooded subway  

  • cars. And I would definitely belittle more freaked out if I were them.

  • These people were evacuated  from drowning subway cars

  • According to official figuresaround 500 people were evacuated,  

  • while tragically, at least 12 people died  while trapped in the flooding subway.

  • The suddenness of the flooding  took people by surprise.  

  • Thankfully, people were able  to pull this woman to safety.

  • But in the aftermath of the floodshundreds of people are still missing,  

  • judging from posts on Chinese social media. And  the death toll is likely to rise. Although we'll  

  • probably never know the true death toll, since  Chinese authorities suppress that information

  • And now locals are asking why authorities  weren't more prepared for the floods.

  • Residents are questioning inaccurate weather  forecasts and a confusing disaster alert system.  

  • And even why officials didn't shut the  subway down after the flooding began.

  • Some are even wondering whether  the officials' decision to open  

  • reservoirs to release floodwater also  contributed to the massive flooding.  

  • If it did, then I fully expect Chinese  authorities to also suppress that information.

  • More China news after the break.

  • Welcome back.

  • It's the book release we were all waiting  forthe Compilation of Xi Jinping's Discourses on  

  • Full and Strict Governance Over the Party! It's so exciting that the official Xinhua news  

  • agency published a...one-sentence article about  it. Well, someone's going to a re-education camp.

  • Anyway, the book is a real page turner. A  compilation of over 220 reports, speeches,  

  • articles, and instructions by  Xi Jinping, from 2012 to 2021.

  • And guess what? It turns out Xi is not  a fan of democracy. Who'd have guessed  

  • presitator for life Xi  Jinping would feel that way?

  • In January 2018, Xi delivered a speech to the  Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.  

  • That's basically his anti-corruption police force  that has been purging all his political opponents.

  • Here's what he said, “As the strict overall  governance of the Party continues to intensify,  

  • there are also some murmurs  of noise within the Party.”

  • Those murmurs were calls for intra-Party  democracy, rather than, shall we say,  

  • more centralized leadership. Two months after  that speech, Xi amended China's Constitution,  

  • so he could effectively be presitator for life. Now this is important to remember about factional  

  • infighting within the Chinese Communist PartyXi didn't make himself leader for life for fun.  

  • Just like those in the Party that  were calling for intra-Party democracy  

  • weren't good-guy reformers. Remember, they  weren't saying give Chinese people a vote.

  • There are no heroes in everyone's favorite  communist soap opera General Hostility.

  • As you know if you've been watching, Xi Jinping  is locked in a life or death power struggle  

  • with a faction tied to former Chinese leader  and Battletoad-reject Jiang Zemin. Intra Party  

  • democracy would have taken power away from Xi  and put it into the hands of the Jiang faction.

  • And remember, in a communist  power struggle, no one wins.

  • The key takeaway, no matter what you might hear,  

  • is the Chinese Communist Party will never  reform. When US politicians or businesses  

  • talk about working with the Communist  Party, they are being idiots.

  • The Party isn't building all those  new missile silos for our health.

  • Speaking of our health, a year  after declaring a pandemic,  

  • the World Health Organization is finally  calling for audits of the Wuhan labs.

  • I mean how much evidence  could the Chinese Communist  

  • Party possibly destroy in just a year's time?

  • But I don't want to criticize the WHO  

  • that much. I'm sure they've learned many  lessons from the coronavirus pandemic.  

  • Just in time for China to report its first  human death from the rare Monkey B virus.

  • The 53 year old man was a veterinarian. He  was dissecting two dead monkeys and got sick.  

  • It's rare for humans to contract the Monkey  B virus—a form of herpes that causes brain  

  • swelling in humans. Since most people aren't at  risk of coming in contact with monkey fluids,  

  • it's pretty rare in humans.

  • However, while the Monkey B virus is  deadly, it's not as bad as the Monkey C  

  • virus, which causes radical behavioral  changes. After all, Monkey C, monkey do.

  • More bad news for Hong Kong's Apple DailyWhich is surprising since the Hong Kong  

  • government already drove the company out  of business. How much worse could it get?

  • Well, Hong Kong national security police  arrested 3 more top staff of the paper,  

  • including the former editor in chief.

  • It's not entirely clear what they're being  charged with, but I think it's pretty clear  

  • Hong Kong authorities don't need much of  a reason to arrest anyone these days.

  • Speaking of the continued communist takeover  of Hong Kong, staff at Hong Kong's public  

  • broadcaster are no longer allowed to call Taiwan  a country, or refer to its leader as a president.

  • So Taiwan's democratically  elected president, Tsai-ing Wen,  

  • must be calledthe most senior leader of Taiwan”  

  • while Xi Jinping, who was elected by nobodymust be calledpresident.” It makes total sense.

  • China is suffering frommassive demographic crisis.

  • It was caused by decades of  state-run family planning.  

  • In other words, forced  abortions and sterliziations.

  • Well, for the first time in  decades, the CCP has lifted  

  • baby fines for people who have  more children than allowed.

  • Currently there's a three-child policy. But nowyou won't be fined if you have more. Supposedly.  

  • We'll see how local officials handle it.

  • But this should give you some idea  of just how desperate the CCP is  

  • for people to start having babies. Of  course for all the people who have been  

  • forcibly sterilized, the new changes  probably don't mean all that much.

  • And after the break, Chinese people might  not want to have more kids, but that hasn't  

  • stopped the Chinese Communist  Party from screwing the US.

  • Welcome back.

  • Over the past decade, China has hacked  dozens of US pipeline companies.

  • And this wasn't about stealing  technology. Oh no. Much worse.

  • According to the FBI and Homeland Security,  

  • these intrusions were likely intended to  gain strategic access to the [pipeline]  

  • networks for future operations rather  than for intellectual property theft.”

  • In other words, they weren't stealing  the technology. Chinese hackers  

  • wanted to be able to seize  control of them in the future.  

  • So Blackrock, tell me more about how we  should be investing in Chinese bonds.

  • But if you want more proof that no one  is taking the China threat seriously,  

  • the US military has been buying Chinese cameras  in violation of America's own China sanctions!

  • We're talking video surveillance equipment with  known national security risks. But the military  

  • didn't buy them directly from China. No no  no. They bought them from American resellers  

  • who totally said they didn't violate US sanctions.  

  • Gives me a lot of confidence  in US military intelligence.

  • In more good news, guess who's buying  up American farms? Besides Bill Gates.

  • The answer is, China.

  • Yes, China might someday control America's  food supply. I can't see that going wrong.

  • By the start of 2020, Chinese  owners controlled about 192,000  

  • agricultural acres in the  U.S., worth $1.9 billion.”

  • That's still a small percentage of the nearly  900 million acres of total American farmland.  

  • So it's not an immediate problem, but it's  something we should definitely do something about.

  • But in some good news, there is  bipartisan agreement this is bad.  

  • Because, you know, national security.  

  • And I'm talking like, Mike Pence and Elizabeth  Warren are in agreement. That's amazing. To see  

  • a white man and a Native American woman setting  aside their differences for the common good.

  • And this week marks the 22 year anniversary of the  

  • Chinese Communist Party's crackdown  on the Falun Gong spiritual practice

  • US State Department Spokesperson  Ned Price had this to say.

  • We recognize 22 years since the People's  Republic of China launched a campaign of  

  • repression against the Falun Gong movement and  its millions of practitioners, advocates, and the  

  • human rights defenders working to protect their  rights...We call on the PRC to immediately cease  

  • its campaign against Falun Gong practitioners and  release those imprisoned due to their beliefs.

  • Back in May, the State Department sanctioned a  

  • Chinese official involved  in persecuting Falun Gong.

  • And even former Secretary of  State Mike Pompeo spoke out.

  • With respect to Falun Gong, the absence  of religious freedom in China is horrific,  

  • it is tragic, it's gone on for too long and  America needs to lead the world to ensure  

  • that those people have the opportunity to  practice their faith in the way they want to.”

  • The Senate Foreign Relations Committee also issued  

  • a statement condemning the Communist  Party's campaign against Falun Gong.

  • As did at least 15 other US  lawmakers, like Senator Marco Rubio

  • As well as the Inter-Parliamentary  Alliance on China,  

  • an international coalition of  politicians from 20 countries.

  • So considering former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin  said he'd wipe out Falun Gong in three months  

  • back in 1999, I'd say this campaign majorly  backfired for the Chinese Communist Party.

  • And now it's time to answer a question frommember 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.

  • Ringleader asks, “Knowing that the  PLA and it's "military leadership"  

  • have no real combat/war fighting experience, plus  it's extreme corruption, what are the odds that  

  • the CCP could really succeed in a real invasion  against the independent nation of Taiwan?” 

  • That is the big question, isn't it? The  Chinese military is basically completely  

  • untested. That's a huge advantage  for the defense of Taiwan.

  • Not to mention China would be facingcoalition of forces defending Taiwan.  

  • Besides the US, Japan said  it would likely get involved.

  • The real advantage the Chinese Communist  Party has is the fact that basically  

  • everything today is made in China. The US is  entirely dependent on China for things like  

  • aspirin and antibiotics. That's an  advantage the Chinese regime will keep  

  • pressing. Then there's the wild-card factor  of China's space weapons. If they really  

  • could blind US satellites, that really would  impact the US military's ability to coordinate.

  • But China would still be facing some pretty big  obstacles to a successful invasion of Taiwan.  

  • But an unsuccessful invasion of TaiwanWell, that's a whole 'nother story.

  • Thanks for your question and  your support, Ringleader.

  • And a big thank you to everyone who supports China  Uncensored on Patreon. We could not do this show  

  • without you. So thank you for joining us in the  fight to expose the Chinese Communist Party to
