A cursory glance at current headlines within large portions of the mainstream media illustrates one glaring omission.
As many as 225 people have been killed or missing in heavy torrential rains and floods that have wreaked havoc in China with about 250,000 still trapped in the central Hubei Province.
More than 680,000 people were affected and 10 townships swamped following continuous heavy rainfall from July 18 to 20, Tianmen city government in the Hubei Province said.
Over 500 soldiers, 1,000 people and 62 speedboats have been sent for rescue work while more than 10,000 people have been sent to ensure the safety of river banks, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
At least 114 people have been killed and 111 others missing in Hubei province.
Local authorities have evacuated nearly 300,000 people.
Flooding and rain-triggered landslides have caused the collapse of 52,900 houses and damage to 155,000.
Over 700,000 hectares of crops have also been destroyed, leading to direct economic losses of over 16 billion yuan (USD 2.4 billion).
The worst-hit Daxian Village of Xingtai City was almost empty after a flash flood swamped it early Wednesday.
At least 8 villagers were killed and one missing.
The video below, courtesy of CCTV+, gives an idea on the scale of devastation.
PressTV also reported on the story, saying:
The rainfall has also affected some neighborhoods of the capital, Beijing, as water submerged some roads by more than two meters. Hundreds of flights were canceled to and from the capital city’s main international airport. The rail authority in the capital also said some high-speed rail services had to be delayed.
Flooding is common in China in the rainy summer season.
The country’s worst flooding in recent history happened in 1998, when at least 4,150 people lost their lives, most of them along the Yangtze River.
Chinese officials had issued a warning about the potential for the high record of floods this year due to a strong El Nino weather pattern, which raises sea-surface temperatures in the Pacific and is linked to serious crop damage, forest fires, flash floods and drought around the world.
The mention of El Nino here is worth expanding upon. Researcher Dane Wigington at Geoengineeringwatch.org has long been exposing how weather manipulation impacts upon the planet. In an article published last year, Dane wrote this:
The periodic “El Niño” phenomenon is the planet’s process of releasing excess heat from the oceans. El Niño events are directly associated with record warm global temperatures as the seas release this excess heat.
Since at least 2007 the geoengineers have done everything they could to prevent El Niño from forming in a highly destructive attempt to keep global temperatures down.
How could the geoengineers actually affect the El-Niño process? By maintaining the ridge of high pressure over the US west coast.
This constant ridge of high pressure is a phenomenon which is fueled by ionosphere heaters like “HAARP” along with the constant spraying of atmospheric aerosols. The ridge has in effect altered the trade winds normally associated with the development of El Niño and thus kept the rapidly building heat on our planet contained in the now record warm oceans.
Is this why we are now seeing massive floods in China? As well as being a primary cause, there is also another aspect to the devastation.
Consider for a moment how these floods are impacting on China’s economy. Estimates vary but so far the amount of damage resulting largely from the destruction of croplands is said to stand at over $2 billion. Also consider the major disruption to China’s transport network, with flights being cancelled in and out of the country and some train lines being completely submerged due to landslides.
Troubling as well is a separate report from the South China Morning Post, which touches on what I recently posted about regarding Tasmania. Next to no warning was given to residents on the scale of rain fall about to hit. The report begins with:
Zhang Erqiang was devastated by the loss of both his children after a flood swept through Xingtai city early on Wednesday.
Like many of his fellow 2,000 villagers in Daxian, Zhang is demanding to know why officials failed to warn them of the impending flashflood and act quickly enough to help them evacuate.
Daxian, 400km south of Beijing, was one of the worst-hit villagers in the flood that left least seven people dead, including three children. Two other children were missing,The Beijing News reported.
“The flash flood took my daughter [Zhang Yunuo], 10, and son [Zhang Haoyu], 6, away in a split second. It took me the whole day to find their bodies,” Zhang told the newspaper.
While some villagers believe the flood was caused by a deluge in an upstream reservoir, authorities have categorically denied the disaster was due to human error. But officials admitted their warnings, issued through TV, Wechat and microblogging services just a few minutes before the floods hit, may have been too late to avoid the heavy casualties in villages including Daxian where power and communications were also disrupted.
On top of this, the South China Morning Post reported villagers as saying levees in Daxian had not been strengthened after floods hit the area in 1996. They also went on to say that:
The floods were exacerbated by the installation of central heating pipelines near the village in the past few months, which blocked much of the riverway with mounds of earth, according to reports in Caixin magazine and several other mainland publications.
Can this all be mere coincidence?
When you consider that weather manipulation encompasses the entire world, and how El Nino is being artificially suppressed by Geoengineers, it stands to reason that rain of this nature can be engineered to impact on a nation.
Of critical importance, however, is trying to understand why China is suffering these floods now. And with such ferocity.
The South China Sea Connection
I encourage all readers to research the significance of the South China Sea. An article written by James O’Neill at New Eastern Outlook explores its Geo-Political implications. To summarise, O’Neill writes:
Most of the contemporary arguments revolve around the area of the South China Sea contained within the so-called Nine Dash Line. These are intermittent lines drawn on a map extending south from China’s Hainan Island parallel to the Vietnamese coast, and then looping back northward to China, embracing parts of the exclusive economic zones of Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and Taiwan.
The Spratlys are a grouping of 230 islands, reefs, cays and sand banks of which only 30 are above water at the high tide mark. Of the six countries claiming an interest in the Spratlys, only Brunei has failed to construct structures, mostly on stilts, on more than 40 of these islets and reefs.
The claims on this stretch of sea long ago secured the direct involvement of the United States. America’s official line is that China’s actions in the South China sea threaten ‘freedom of navigation’ in waters that transport around $5 trillion worth of world trade every year.
This from James O’Neill:
No-one, least of all the belligerent spokespersons in Washington and Canberra, can point to a single statement from PRC officials, nor a single act by the PRC, that actually threatens freedom of navigation.
The overwhelming majority of the trade passing through the South China Sea is either going to or coming from China itself.
One of the ostensible reasons for the military activity of the United States, Australia, and others in the South China Sea is to preserve what they refer to as “freedom of navigation,” by which they mean the free passage of shipping through international waters, i.e. outside the 12 nautical mile territorial limit.
American nuclear – armed submarines are currently patrolling the waters of the South China Sea. Other military activity includes the sailing of a U.S. aircraft carrier through the disputed waters, as well as flying an armed bomber aircraft up to the 12 mile limit of the PRC (People’s Republic of China) territory.
What begins a connection between the South China Sea and an act of weather manipulation on Chinese land is from understanding that a leading Geo-Political development in the 21st century has been the re-emergence of China as an economic superpower. Later this year China’s currency, the Yuan, will be officially inducted into the International Monetary Fund’s Special Drawing Rights of basket currencies. This is partly in recognition of their growing stature on the world economic stage.
This starts to explain, on the surface, America’s presence in the South China Sea. China is rapidly building new economic relationships with surrounding countries, with the risk to America being that their hegemony on the world stage will be mortally wounded.
Now let’s turn to a story written on the UK’s Telegraph website on 18th July, 2016. Here is why the militarization of the weather in China looks ever more probable:
China will this week seal off part of the South China Sea as it conducts military exercises, authorities said on Monday, following a landmark tribunal ruling which quashed its claims over virtually all of the waters.
An area to the south-east of China’s southern island province of Hainan will be closed off for military manoeuvres, the maritime administration said.
The notice on Monday did not specify what type of manoeuvres would be carried out, but said they would continue until Thursday (21st July 2016)
The Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague ruled last Tuesday that China had “no legal basis” for its “nine-dash line”, which defines its claims.
After considering a case brought by the Philippines, the court ruled against China on virtually every substantive point.
Beijing has already said it does not recognise the court’s ruling, and an official last week said China has the right to set up an air defence zone over the South China Sea, a move that would further heighten tensions.
Two days after this story was published, Business Insider UK reported on how U.S. military forces will continue their operations in the South China Sea. U.S. chief of Naval Operations, John Richardson, said:
The U.S. Navy will continue to conduct routine and lawful operations around the world, including in the South China Sea, in order to protect the rights, freedoms and lawful uses of sea and airspace guaranteed to all. This will not change.
I will be continuously reassessing my support conditioned on continued safe and professional interactions at sea. In this area we must judge each other by our deeds and actions, not just by our words, he added.
On top of this, the article reported on how:
The U.S. has complained over how Chinese aircraft and ships have performed ‘unsafe’ maneuvers while shadowing American ships and planes, particularly in the South China Sea.
Ask yourself these questions. Do you believe that the destructive floods in China have happened by coincidence when around the same time China have defied the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague who ruled that they have ‘no legal basis for its “nine-dash line”? Or do you think it possible that weather manipulation has had a major hand in what we are seeing out of China?
My contention is that the crux of Geo-Politics lies in the sustained attack on the individual sovereignty of nations. If you believe as I do that power is being ever more centralised to eventually lead to central world governance, then give consideration to an article on Global Research published in 2015, and these words in particular:
China justifiably considers the Nansha (Spratly) Islands and waters surrounding them its sovereign territory. America respects only its own sovereignty, no one else’s.
China will have no choice but to respond to US provocations. Its message says it won’t tolerate US intervention where it doesn’t belong.
China is concerned about America’s increasing Asia/Pacific presence, provocatively challenging its sovereignty and security.
The figureheads of power who control the United States – a Trojan horse for the likes of the Rockefeller’s, the Rothschild’s and the Warburg’s – have, through their agents within the governmental and financial systems, engineered the impression of conflict between America and China. Whether you believe these two countries are actually on opposing sides is another matter. But it’s important to consider that power cannot be fully centralised and put under a single jurisdiction without the co-operation of the countries it seeks to envelop.
Sovereignty is the sacrifice for world governance. And acts of weather manipulation, as I believe we are seeing in China, are an important cog in fanning the flames of conflict.
