5 Ways Huawei is China’s All-Seeing Eye | China News | China Uncensored


The Chinese Telecom Giant Huawei wants to dominate the international market. And that’s key to the Chinese Communist
Party’s plans. Welcome back to China Uncensored. I’m Chris Chappell. Take a moment to subscribe to our YouTube
channel for the latest China news, and click the notification bell so you get
an alert when we publish a new episode. Huawei. It’s the largest telecom equipment maker
in China— and the entire world. How did this Chinese company become a global force in just a few short decades? Well, it was more than just their entrepreneurial
spirit. It was largely thanks to the company’s close
relationship with the Chinese Communist Party. Which explains why Huawei’s phones redistribute all of your data to the Chinese regime. Huawei’s relationship with the Chinese Communist
Party is something the US government has been worried
about for years. But it’s become international news following the arrest of Huawei’s CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada last December. The US has filed criminal charges against
Meng and Huawei for various forms of fraud and violating US
sanctions on Iran. Now, the US wants to extradite Meng. Despite that, Huawei is still a critical part of the Chinese Communist Party’s plan to become a world superpower. And the Chinese regime has pushed Huawei onto unsuspecting countries through its Belt and Road Initiative, also known as One Belt, One Road. Which is much better than the original name, One Loan, One Debt Trap. Since the Belt and Road Initiative began in
2013, the Chinese regime has financed infrastructure
projects in more than 60 countries. And while it might be hard to see Huawei’s
role in say, building a bridge in Kenya— that may or may not collapse, —the telecom equipment maker is the digital
bridge builder of the Belt and Road. In a March 2015 directive about the goals
for the Belt and Road, Chinese authorities said “Two key objectives were the ‘construction of transnational fiber optics for communications’ and ‘synchronizing technological standards between China and other countries.’” And that’s where Huawei comes in. According to one Huawei official speaking
to Chinese media, “different [One Belt One Road] infrastructure
projects… would all require modern telecom equipment to allow systems to communicate with each
other— prime business opportunities for Huawei.” Huawei also received huge loans from the state-owned Silk Road investment
fund, and the  Asian Infrastructure Investment
Bank, which is backed by the Chinese regime. Here are 5 ways Huawei is being used for the Belt and Road Initiative. Number 5 Underwater Internet Cables The Internet may not be a series of tubes, but it is a series of cables— including thousands of miles of cables that run underneath the oceans. Which is part of the reason why the Atlanteans are so mad at us surface-dwellers. But really, the Atlanteans should direct their
anger at Huawei Marine. It’s a joint venture between Huawei, and a U.K.-based submarine communications
firm Global Marine Systems. They built 7 thousand miles of undersea cables. They called it the PEACE Cable Project. Which sounds super sketchy. It’s an underwater high-speed internet cable
system linking Pakistan, South Africa, Kenya, Somalia, Djibouti, Egypt, and France. They say it will be a new information expressway for China, Europe and Africa. Which is just what everyone wants. Internet brought to you by the world’s worst abuser of internet freedom. According to the Huawei Marine COO, they were building enough underwater cable to circle the entire Earth. But they ran into a little undersea problem. And I don’t mean Cthulhu. I’m talking about Australia. In June, the Australian government agreed
to fund its own undersea internet cables for the Solomon
Islands, leapfrogging Huawei’s plans to build their
cables there. According to Reuters, that was done because if Huawei had built
it instead, it “could have compromised Australian internet
security.” Number 4 Smart Cities You live in a dumb city. No, I’m not insulting the place you live. I’m just saying, it’s not a “smart city.” “Similar to how a person’s nervous system
detects and reacts to changes in its environment, a Smart City using Huawei’s Smart City solutions can sense, process and deliver informed decisions that improves the environment for its inhabitants.” That may sound pretty good, but remember that it’s a company connected to the world’s largest authoritarian regime that’s saying it can sense, process and
deliver informed decisions that affect its inhabitants. And according to a 2015 research paper from China’s State Information Center, smart cities could help lead the Belt and
Road Initiative. “The paper applauded Huawei… for undertaking an important role in building ‘smart cities’ in other countries.” And what would a top feature of these smart
cities designed by a company with shady links to the Chinese Communist Party be? Why, better governance. Brr, I’m shivering. And it’s not the polar vortex. I think it’s something to do with how the Chinese Communist Party uses that same technology in China to harass and monitor its own population. And the Belt and Road Initiative, using Huawei technology, is trying to export that model. According to the Jamestown Foundation, “While the smart cities of the future could
be better, more efficient cities, they could also provide authoritarian regimes with previously undreamt of tools of surveillance
and control.” Why, let’s take a look at one example of a Huawei Belt and Road Smart City. Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. It began its transformation into a smart city
in 2016. To start with, that meant Huawei adding around 10,000 surveillance cameras. What a wonderful contribution to an authoritarian
state. In fact, Jamestown notes, “It is both interesting and suggestive that the list of countries where Huawei’s safe
city solutions were first deployed includes a number of authoritarian and hybrid regimes with close ties to China, among them Russia, Pakistan, Venezuela, Laos, and Angola.” And since that worked out so well for them, Germany is now interested as well. But don’t worry. There’s no way Germany could ever transform into an authoritarian state. Number 3 Smart Energy Can’t have a smart city without smart energy. That’s why Huawei is now selling smart energy
systems to oil-producing countries and companies. Which turns out are also usually authoritarian
regimes. Go figure. Some of these contracts Huawei has are official Belt and Road projects. One of the major strategic goals of the Belt
and Road initiative is to funnel global oil supplies to China, which struggles to keep up with growing energy
needs. But it’s not just oil. Shanghai Electric, a subsidiary of China’s state-owned construction
company, PowerChina, is building a new solar power plant in Argentina. According to the Huawei website, “It is the first successful project in Argentina after the Belt and Road Initiative proposed
by China.” And “the project adopts Huawei Smart [photovoltaic]
solutions”, which may include connecting Huawei technology
to the power grid. Wow, great idea. Give the Chinese Communist Party easy access to your nation’s power supply. Number 2 National Emergency Systems Ecuador has hitched its trailer to the Belt
and Road. A big part of that was the ECU 911 national
emergency system. It was built by China’s state-owned China National Electronics Import and Export
Corporation. And they turned to Huawei for their facial recognition surveillance
cameras, routers, wireless access points, network switches, and wireless access controllers. So basically, using the excuse of providing
Ecuador with a national emergency service, China got to install an all seeing eye. First of all, that’s a cyber espionage threat. But beyond that, it risks exporting the Communist Party’s
authoritarianism around the world. “Countries like [Ecuador] may have difficulties
acquiring sophisticated types of surveillance— of course they can buy it off the shelf, but what China can give them is a whole system, from physical centers to processing software. And when they export those systems, it’s not just the physical aspect but the political norms that come with them.” So Chinese investment, backed by state-owned enterprises and Huawei, might come with a bit more than a lot of countries
bargained for. Number 1 5G 5G is the future of wireless communication. And companies around the world are trying to dominate the market. According to the New York Times, “A Huawei spokesman said it had been working on 5G since 2009, having spent $600 million on related research already and committing $800 million more in
2018 alone.” And “Huawei…owns about 10 percent of 5G
essential patents.” This could be a big win for Huawei. It could pocket licensing fees from both government and mobile service providers that use a Huawei
5G network. This report by U.S.-based think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies shows that Huawei leads the world in manufacturing a certain vital component
of 5G service: the radio access network or RAN. RAN is what connects your mobile phone to
the network. If Huawei gained control of the world’s
5G networks, it means the Chinese Communist Party could also get access. And that would create mayhem and mass surveillance, according to a retired US General. However, Huawei’s 5G ambitions may not be
coming to fruition. Countries around the world have begun banning Huawei from working with their governments and building their 5G networks. For a rundown on that, check out my recent episodes, How 8 Countries Are Dealing with Huawei. So what do you think of how Huawei is getting in on China’s Belt and Road Initiative? Leave your comments below. 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. Zhou Rui asks, “With Xi Jinping’s consolidation of power mostly complete is there even a small chance that he will
invoke his power to make China Democratic or even Democratic with Chinese characteristics?” What Xi Jinping ultimately will do is the
million yuan question. However, I don’t want you to have the misconception that Xi is an untouchable all-powerful leader. There’s still infighting going on within
the Communist Party. China is facing unprecedented economic and
social challenges. The US-China trade war is just one of them. And Xi will get all the credit or blame for however it all goes down. And if Xi Jinping can’t save the ship by doubling down on the Chinese Communist
Party, he may try to pull a Gorbachev: Dissolve the Communist Party, and make China democratic— or as you said, “Democratic with Chinese characteristics.” Which could mean less like Taiwan, and more like Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Xi Jinping is politically very savvy. If he feels democracy is the best option— or the least bad available option— he may try it. But don’t hold your breath for China creating a democracy as open as Taiwan’s. There is a small chance, but these things are very hard to predict. Thanks for you question, Zhou Rui.

  1. Should I create a youtube channel and name it "U.S & Australia Uncensored"? That's gonna be fun. I'm just wondering how much they gave you to make these kinds of demonizing propaganda videos? 10 cents per viewer? lol!!! You are very successfully demonstrated that money really talks.

  2. So the difference between huawei and iphone is that they send the data to chinese authorities instead of americans authorities, and how is that worse?

  3. germeny triple checks for hacks…. replies these is trash america!!!

    big daddy comes it, we'll fukin build it instead because the German people are our people 2

  4. Huawei meizu oppo vivo any Chinese cellphone has a spyware beware of fanatics of Chinese product it could be invade your personal data.

  5. Whoa, your 3/4 of the way to a million, that great! More people should know about china tbh, to much russia in media

  6. 반갑습니가. 김정민 박사님 소개로 왔습니다. 국제관계관점과 영어공부를 동시에 짱이네요~

  7. I never want to change my phone 5G. I am okay with 4G. I don't want any company or government know or see who I am what I am doing and get all my private information.

  8. How is possible that people don't understand that this channel is pure propaganda ?
    hmmm many of the commentators are also fake.

  9. This is so ridiculous! How can one propagate so much crap in a second. I think it beats the bandwith of 5G in terms of stupidities per secs.
    The US has never been able to deliver a single proof of what they pretend about Huawei.
    In addition, the biggest "ear" in this world, is not China. It's the NSA. They listen to the complete Internet. Do I want it? NO, I definitely don't. Is American surveillance good and Chinese bad. NO, both are bad. And I am even convinced that American surveillance is more dangerous to me then Chinese.

    This video just demonstrates one thing: America is really affraid of Chinese technology because they've lost the lead, they're now lagging years behind. They are not able to hack Huawei's infrastructure, so they cannot control the world's networks as they do now. (It's well known since Snowden that they have installed dormant virus SW on nearly every network equipment, worldwide).

    This video is just a demonstration of how helpless the US is. And they react as they always do: aggressive and with lies, for instance providing this kind of stupid video to brainwash western people.

    Fortunately there are countries like Germany which still can use their brain. But the US do not even respect their allies, the US immediatly threatened Germany. Isn't THIS authoritarian. This sound like a world dictature! This is the real face of America, and it is an odious face.

  10. Chris, your China Uncensored is fantastic. I'll like to make a suggestion: from time to time why not you make a Patreon program specifically to answer only questions, more questions I mean. With this I think you can make more of your paid clients happy and it'll be interesting when various different topics are answered. Bye.

  11. they only move forward!!!!!!!!What is the problem?????????They talk less and do a lot.The way it should be. the americans talk a lot and mostly lies and the go backwards. So whose fault is it??????And you spend your precious time making videos like thi

  12. Hi Chris, enjoy your channel watch it everyday, you really need to take a hard look at what China is doing in Jamaica West Indies. Another " One Belt One Road" project and the Jamaican workers and contractors are hurting because it's all Chinese labor. Also strategically Jamaica is a couple hundred miles from the USA, go figure.

  13. Python Control Towers. Com, Rec, Track, Surveillance, Altra high microwave personnel neutralization systems ?

  14. Only the Chinese scumbags will give your videos a thumbs down, obviously.
    More power to you and your channel bro.!

  15. What a propaganda… This is not regime…. In regime THAY didn't have milioners years ago was change…. You are just effect of USA corrupted corporations and Wall Street….

  16. China doesn't honor patents or IP. So hopefully others steal Huawei tech…if they have anything that wasn't stolen int the first place?

  17. Last time I heard New Orders from the west and implant chips in your body that made me scared too. Don’t forget one is devil in disguise. Remember SNOWDEN case NSA

  18. I know Huawei doesn't give a damn about my data, but I wouldn't have an H phone if you paid me, don't care how good it is. Commies can have them all.

  19. But isn't Trump's main reason for singling out Huawei is because they did not invest in the Trump's election or business ventures, legal or otherwise, and don't have a Trump tower, golf course or hotel in China? One may notice that Trump's sanctions don't effect Trump's clothing line that is made in China, as well as ,members of his family that also have production in China!
    If Xi Jinping had invested money in Trump, Trump would be calling Xi Jinping a great friend and great leader and would be selling out the US for a tower in Beijing, or elsewhere in China, while not paying taxes and not revealing his tax returns, for obvious reasons!! Maybe China's Communist Party didn't allow Trump to have a university there!
    By far, the greatest and most immediate threat to the US is from within, the Trump administration, the Republican party and the NRA and the Trump supporting anti-American treasonous and fascist supporting right wing propaganda media that sold their sole for gold and sells out the US and supports compulsive and habitual lying, a known criminal mobster, a swindler, a con man, a fascism supporter as indicated by his advisor Bannon a well known fascist, conspirator and collaberatorTrump no mater what!

  20. That's why in India I tell my parents and friends and people to not use Chinese mobiles and use only Samsung

  21. And, for some reason, Venezuela is suffering "Black Outs" that are seriously hampering the people's efforts to get rid of the Venezuelan Basic Dictator, Murdero? Good thing they got their Huawei on credit!! So, now we know why Canada's Basic Dictator, Trudo, wants Huawei.

  22. 6:22 "There's no way Germany could transform into an authoritarian state."
    Woah just woah, satire levels are pretty high here

  23. Honestly this is starting to get idiotic… Apple or Google are probably 10 times worst in their practices.

  24. there is no degree of separation between Huawei and Chinese Military Intelligence , so is there concern?????

  25. Bla Bla Blah! Remember Snowden? Remember why he is now living in exile? Every country works for its interest and the best will win the battle. The rest is just propaganda aimed at disqualifying the proponents of this power struggle.

  26. So China wants to know all of my information eh? Well if they want to see my internet history then go ahead. Scary stuff. Also if they want to see what I talk about, well I don't think they would like my anti-communist, Pro-Taiwan stance. Go ahead and look at my information Huawei and China. Just going to disturb and piss you off at the same time. 🙂

  27. Bizarre weak point of Huawei; I wonder what would happen, if the under water fiber cables are cut at several points? Just wondering????

  28. Look, that idea of "removing" a word is probably the best, but Zemin did take a wrong action.. He was fucking right to take action though, he just did half of it wrong.. Its like Hitler, These guys have the power, and just end up taking a wrong action.. Look, trade the remaining Tienemen families for U.S homeless people.. I know a lot of these homeless people would appreciate a new way of living.. America destroyed them.. Thats why they're under the bridges.. Thank you China..

  29. Question: Does your critIcism of China's government keep you (or prevent you) from visiting China? Just asking…..

  30. Edward Snowden has revealed that the U.S. is spying even on it's allies. The problem with Huawei's infrastructure is that the U.S. can no longer spy on it's allies.

  31. Huawei has also deployed cameras in Uganda and we all know Uganda's president has spent over 33 years in power and likely to declare life presidency.

  32. The only reason they would connect it from all of the third world countries to Western world France cannot be good

  33. The leader of China does not seem dominatingly evil. But it will not go democratic. The culture does not support it yet. Maybe when the younger kids become older.

  34. What about national security letters? What about the tempora and prism programs?

    Don't make out the western government aren't up to the same tricks. What about the back the NSA put into cisco big iron routers. Then what about windows WMF vunrablity. What about the NSA buying 0 days?

    Microsoft Google Facebook Apple all are big data collectors who both sell their data to third parties including the government. Who know what was in the national security letters they received.

    This attack on china is pure jealousy. Decades of underinvestment in education technology and science is why the west is failing.

    You guys just come off as major hypocrites ignoring the crimes of western governments. This is nothing more than propaganda.

  35. Drowning in stupid & mass surveillance is a recipe economic collapse since there is no moral filter, no content filter & DUMBED DOWN HUMAN CONTROLLERS OF THE AI! That equals typical moronic CCP moronic decisions=CCP/Huawei simply amplifies the Communist Stupid Central Planning failures CCP STILL STUCK ON STUPID even when automated mass surveillance wasting billions!

  36. Huawei RAN based on part technology me and my company developed and they stole starting in 1999, but w/Centralized inefficient methodology. Chinese boards and nails approach WILL BE SLOWER in the long run!

  37. All the banks, transportation, airlines, all kind of communication service can be controlled by Huawei in case of war with China. So every country myst develop their own network and communication system

  38. Chris this video is an excellent glance into the very near future (Feb to July).
    I think Trump watch your video because he exactly "listen to" what you warned against. When he banned Huawei more than half the world and the Big Tech in America shat in their proverbial pants. Huawei themselves started hopping up and down like crickets on a hot tin roof when they realized the huge impact it will have on their business. Suddenly an OS, Hongmeng, fell out of the secrets cabinet. Surprise, surprise. Okay, the OS is not ready but now we know about it.

    China Uncensored is allowed to say: "We told you so."

  39. Only because Xi is a primary school graduate,the chinese government tend to make all the Chinese people become idiot.

  40. I love listening to this dribble don't use underwater cables the USA can listen in the biggest spy network in the world

  41. Hello Cris, first of all Confratulations for the show, I'm in Argentina there is another CCP proyect in the south region not many people now whats really going on there, the place is a radar dish instalation, the facility is in control of the CCP army, keep up the excelent work you guys do!

  42. Is there substance to a supposed connection to a once leading Canadian based World leader company called “Nortel” .. whose mysterious disappearance is somehow connected to Esenihc Leading company??
