When a group of engineers and researchers gathered in a warehouse in Mukilteo, Wash., 10 years ago, they knew they were onto something big. They scrounged up tables and chairs, cleared out space in the parking lot for experiments and got to work.
They were building a battery — a vanadium redox flow battery — based on a design created by two dozen U.S. scientists at a government lab. The batteries were about the size of a refrigerator, held enough energy to power a house, and could be used for decades. The engineers pictured people plunking them down next to their air conditioners, attaching solar panels to them, and everyone living happily ever after off the grid.
China has the largest number of cameras in the world. Some media claim a number of over 200 million cameras. In 2019, the British technology research website published a survey that if China continued to install surveillance cameras at the current rate, by 2020, the average Chinese would be under the surveillance of 1 camera for every two citizens.
If the police enabled these surveillance devices, it shouldn’t be difficult to find the missing population. However, in China, a red country with a special system, those surveillance devices can’t find those missing people.
The debt crisis in China’s real estate industry has not only spawned a large number of unfinished buildings or rotten tail buildings as they’re called in China, but the crisis has also affected its upstream steel industry. People may have two general impressions of China’s steel industry. First is its size. It’s the world’s largest, scale-wise; second is its overcapacity. The latter is a headache for the world, as China floods the market with cheap steel it has shut down steel mills in other countries and left workers unemployed. For nearly a decade, the U.S. and Europe have been fighting the CCP over this issue.

China isn’t sending its military to occupy other countries, instead it’s sending armed “private” security companies who act as mercenaries for the Chinese Communist Party. In this episode of China Uncensored, we look at how these armed mercenaries are part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), what else they’re being asked to do for the CCP while abroad, and how the US is involved in training these mercenaries.

A Chinese company purchased hundreds of acres of North Dakota farmland mere minutes from a major US Air Force base, prompting national security fears as the communist country adds to its nearly 200,000 acres of US agricultural land worth $1.9 billion.
Congressional Republicans launched a formal investigation into the Biden administration on Friday following its decision to sell a Chinese state-controlled company nearly one million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve, according to a copy of the probe obtained exclusively by the Washington Free Beacon.
The probe comes on the heels of a Free Beacon report detailing how the Biden administration sold China oil from the U.S. reserves amid a crippling energy crisis that has sent consumer prices skyrocketing. Rep. Pat Fallon (R., Texas), a member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, is spearheading the investigation along with six of his GOP colleagues, including Reps. Ronny Jackson (Texas) and Ralph Norman (S.C.).
Hundreds of thousands of people in China have lost access to their bank accounts, and it’s been going on since May. But when these penniless depositors tried to protest, they were crushed by police. After spewing vitriol about Japan for so many years, it shouldn’t be a surprise that China is now celebrating the death of pro-Taiwan MP and former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Biden may soon lift tariffs on Chinese goods coming into the US due to inflation. Watch this episode of China Uncensored for that and more of this week’s China news headlines.
