TIDBIT: IS CHINA’S MASSIVE THREE GORGES DAM BEGINNING TO FAIL?

Apropos of today's main blog, there's another internal pressure building in China, and I mean that literally.  Aerial photographs of China's massive Three Gorges Dam are showing that it is beginning to buckle and shift under the pressure of recent massive flooding in that country. Are we looking at Communist China's Chernobyl? An event that, should the dam fail, might lead to the collapse of the regime because of the massive loss of life it would entail? (May thanks to all the many people who shared this article). Chinese officials are saying the appearance of buckling and warping is simply due to the processing algorithms.

    1. I remember during the pedo gate various interviews – Jimmy Boots Rothstein (retired NYPD) talking to Sarah Westall about NYPD’s reach and power in human trafficking crime. And now AOC wants to eliminate it? Hm. Wonder what her neighborhood will do.

    1. Jim Stone originally went on about this a while back and I checked goolag-earth for other dams I know and have visited. Some of them show the same wavy deformation. It could be optical or it could be real. I would like to see local land based photos over time to judge.

  1. Endemic fraud/deception.
    A system based on fraud/deception embeds itself into the very structures of society; from languages to damn near everything. Nothing escapes, even the things nailed down; as the nails themselves have been corrupted.
    A change of leadership just bring in a newly minted corrupted head. Covid1984 will remain, as will other deceptions. New ones will be minted that are w/in the new leadership’s criminal syndicates reach.

  2. If you consider the short lives of their concrete buildings that seem to crumble and decay rather quickly it’s a wonder it hasn’t failed yet. But this may be a warning as well. Behave or an orbiting dam buster might take out your dam and it will be blamed on faulty construction.

    1. Quiz: which major Chinese city: is all about the “virus”; is the centre of gold fraud; could be submerged by flood waters? Hint: starts with “W”.

  3. Processing algos, the evergreen excuse for oddities appearing everywhere from McMurdo to Timbuctu. But in addition to structural failures, consider the idea of software “glitches”.

  4. Given the records of the rains of the region of the past, when the dam was built, the propensity of the Party to yield their version of a narrative, and the population densities along the Yangtze there’s trouble on the rise. All because of corruption, substandard engineering attested by some, and continued efforts to suppress what’s on the ground and in the rains. Those with boots on the ground on the mainland continue to monitor the situation up and down the Yangtze and in adjacent provinces as do the local folks whose livelihoods have been extremely stricken. They recall a past far different than what is playing out.
