Zetas Right Again: Chinese Bullet Trains and Other Topics

On August 6, 2011, the below ZetaTalk revealed the truth about the July 23, 2011, Bullet Train crash in Eastern China.

On August 12, 2011, Chinese authorities appear to be changing their minds about the safety and future of their high-speed trains.

Mere coincidence?  You decide.

Two high-speed Bullet Trains crashed in Eastern China on July 23, 2011. Reports indicate resulting, widespread outrage among the Chinese and the possibility of a high-level cover up. Can the Zetas fill us in? Was this train crash actually caused by or related to the nearby presence of Planet X? [and from another] http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/china_high_speed_bullet_... Thirty-two people were killed and 191 injured when two high-speed bullet trains slammed into one another in eastern China, causing several cars to derail and fall off a bridge. A power outage triggered by a lightning strike caused one train to stall - only for another to ram into its rear, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported. The crash sent two carriages packed with passengers tumbling from a bridge. Images of the wreck showed one car dangling precariously from the elevated stretch of track, while the other had fallen between 22 and 33 yards (20 to 30 meters) into a viaduct. [and from another] http://behindthewall.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/08/01/7218350-chinese... After a week of unusually outspoken outrage among the Chinese public over a high-speed train crash, Chinese authorities imposed a news blackout on the subject over the weekend. The propaganda authorities imposed a media ban on the train crash, forcing newspapers nationwide to pull their pages of coverage at the last minute. Investigative reports and commentaries were no longer allowed to be published - only positive news or information released by the authorities. [and from another] http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jul/28/china-train-crash-signa... An Lusheng, head of the Shanghai Railway Bureau, said there were design problems with the signal light equipment at the Wenzhou South Station and dispatchers did not send any warnings after the lightning strike. After the lightning strike caused a failure, an interval signal machine that should have shown a red light mistakenly upgraded it to a green light instead.

Much of China is coming out of a long period of technological stagnation, where China was considered not much more than a Third World country. Yes, the people are bright and industrious, but just as the Dark Ages in Europe saw stagnation and domination so that free thinking and innovation did not prevail, China had a similar era. Look at North and South Korea to see what political oppression can inflict. Whatever the historical reasons, the people are innately intelligent and industrious. Communism by its nature allows for a lack of oversight and thus ingrained corruption develops. On the fast track to take their rightful place in the industrial world, mistakes are made. China's high speed rail system had many incidents preceding this incident which were clues that the system was not de-bugged, but those at the helm refused to delay the schedules. Many more such incidents will occur, we predict.  http://www.zetatalk.com/ning/06ag2011.htm

Chinese bullet trains pulled over ‘flaws’

By Agence France-Presse Friday, August 12th, 2011

SHANGHAI — More than 50 bullet trains on a new fast link between Beijing and Shanghai will be recalled because of "flaws," their manufacturer said, in a fresh blow for China's high-speed rail industry.

Friday's move to pull 54 trains from the flagship line came a day after Beijing said it was suspending approval of new railway projects and cutting speeds on newly-built tracks after a deadly collision of two high-speed trains last month.

The state-owned company said the recall would allow it to analyse problems that have plagued train services on the new line, which was built at a cost of $33 billion and only opened on June 30.

 "China CNR Corp ... is recalling 54 CRH380BL bullet trains produced by our subsidiaries that are already in operation to systematically analyse causes of flaws," the firm said in a statement filed with the Shanghai stock exchange.

The recall would allow it to "conduct an overhaul to ensure their quality and safety," said the statement, which was approved by the railway ministry.

It will affect around a quarter of services on the new line, which has suffered a series of delays and power cuts since its launch.

China's government has made the construction of the world's biggest high-speed rail network a key political priority and last month's crash, combined with problems on the Beijing-Shanghai link, was a major embarrassment.

The accident killed 40 people and sparked a public outcry amid allegations the government had disregarded safety concerns in its rush to develop high-speed railways.

The concerns have forced China to slam the brakes on the rapid expansion of its high-speed rail network, the biggest in the world at 8,358 kilometres (5,193 miles) at the end of 2010.

The government had planned for it to exceed 13,000 kilometres by 2012 and 16,000 kilometres by 2020, before the State Council, or cabinet, said on Wednesday it would halt the approval of new railway construction projects.

The government also ordered cuts to the speed of trains running on newly-built high-speed lines and said safety checks would be conducted on all existing fast links as well as those under construction.

The government has said a faulty signalling system was to blame and promised to conduct a thorough investigation into the disaster.

On Friday, the official China Daily newspaper quoted Luo Lin, the government minister heading the investigation team, as saying the accident was "completely avoidable" and likely caused by design defects.

State-owned China CNR Corp said earlier this week that the railway ministry had ordered it to halt shipments of the same model of trains as that involved in the recall after problems caused a series of delays on the Beijing-Shanghai fast link.

The company said an automatic braking system installed in the trains had caused the delays on the high-profile line.

The trains, which were made by CNR unit Changchun Railway Vehicles Co, were installed with sensors that sent alerts to automatically slow the train down, it said.

A spokesman for the company told AFP the trains affected were based on technology used in another model made in partnership with the German technology giant Siemens.

Tan Xiaofeng said the "small but widespread" problems with the CRH380BL model affected components including the trains' heat sensors and would not compromise safety, but could hit punctuality.

"They (heat sensors) worked fine in checks and trials. But once installed in the trains, they are likely to give wrong warnings as affected by the environment," he said.

The recall was the latest sign that concerns over the safety and reliability was taking a toll on China's rail manufacturing industry.

On Thursday another company, China Railway Group, said it had scrapped plans to raise 6.24 billion yuan ($975 million) in a private share placement.

The Hong Kong- and Shanghai-listed railway construction firm cited uncertainties about obtaining government approval for the share placement following changes in policy.

CSR Corp, the maker of the trains involved in the July crash, said Thursday two major shareholders would delay the public trading of the 6.52 billion non-tradable shares they held for three more years.

 Trading of China CNR Corp's stocks was suspended on Thursday, according to a statement on the Shanghai stock exchange, and had not resumed by Friday morning. (Emphasis added.) http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/08/12/chinese-bullet-trains-pulled-...

Zetas right again?

Shanghai Subway Crash: Hundreds InjuredShanghai Subway Crash

SHANGHAI — A Shanghai subway train crashed into another that was stopped underground Tuesday, injuring more than 270 people in the latest trouble for the rapidly expanded transportation system in China's commercial center.

The crash occurred after Shanghai Shentong Metro Group blogged that Line 10 was having delays due to equipment problems. The line opened last year and is one of the city's newest.

At least 271 people were hurt, none seriously, said Xu Jiangguang, head of the city's health bureau. Some of the injured were carried away on stretchers, however, and 30 were being kept overnight for observation.

"This is the darkest day ever for the Shanghai subway. Regardless of the cause or responsibility, we are stricken with remorse for having caused our passengers injury and losses," the company said in an apology posted on its blog. "We want to deeply, deeply apologize."

One train rammed into the back of another that was stopped between stations. Reports said problems with signaling equipment had prompted the line to switch to manual operations.

The signaling equipment reportedly was the same as that used by high-speed trains that collided in July, killing 40 people and injuring 177 in a massive accident that exposed festering resentments over the huge costs of the country's massive buildup of its rail system, especially its high-speed lines.

Authorities have not yet disclosed the results of an investigation into the cause of that accident, though state media cited officials as saying signaling equipment was thought to have been a key factor.

Yu Guangyao, chairman of Shanghai Shentong, told reporters that Tuesday's accident also was linked to problems with signaling equipment. But he did not respond to questions over whether the equipment had also been at fault in previous less-serious accidents.

The trains were relatively crowded when they crashed at midafternoon. Photos posted online by passengers showed some of the injured covered in blood and lying on the floor of the train....  (Emphasis added.)  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/27/shanghai-subway-crash_n_98...

Not absolute proof of Zetas right again, but how often does any politician admit any mistake?  Former Democrat (it's a fact) and current Republican Governor of Texas Rick Perry did just that recently.

ZetaTalk:
Can the Zeta's tell us what is going on with Texas Gov 'ordering' the public to get daughters vaccinated? How can the public fight back and not give in to such demands? http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/

The public is right to be alarmed over mandated vacinations. Is this the highest priority item this Governor is faced with? Certainly, it would seem prudent to allow parents to have their children vacinated when they anticipate the girls will become sexually active. This cancer producing virus is not contagious among children, and requires intercourse to be spread! Wouldn't a condom campaign cover more ground, eliminating unwanted pregnancies as well? So what's behind this move? Where the current vacines are not poisoned or dangerous, it is the trend that is alarming. Texas is seen as a migratory route for many unwanteds after the pole shift. It has a long border, already a wild place and difficult to police, and is anticipated to become an open land after the pole shift, with hordes pouring into the US from Central America. Such lawlessness involves sexual activity, rape, and forced prostitution of little girls and young women. Thus, this route of vacination is intended to spread disease, when the time comes. Such campaigns always require the cooperation of doctors who have conscience, and thus will hit roadblocks. Nevertheless, standing up to these attempts to use the public for the comfort of the elite should be done, as certainly such a revolt will not hurt.  http://www.zetatalk.com/index/zeta354.htm

Governor Perry's admitted mistake, "I didn't do my research on mandate for HPV vaccine":

Facing questions in New Hampshire last weekend, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) was confronted by someone wanting to know why he ordered all Texas girls to receive a series of injections to vaccinate them against human pappiloma virus (HPV), even without the completion of long term studies on the drug.

According to ABC News's The Note, he replied: "I signed an executive order that allowed for an opt out, but the fact of the matter is that I didn’t do my research well enough to understand that we needed to have a substantial conversation with our citizenry."

His mandate was almost immediately repudiated by Republicans across the state. The legislature revoked Perry's order six weeks later....

He instead suggested that people should just "opt in" for vaccines on their own initiative....

Despite its promise, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's initial study of Gardasil found that in initial testing, over 16,000 adverse events were reported following vaccinations, and as many as 8 percent were considered to be serious. A long term study was not completed before the drug was offered at market and the National Vaccine Information Center has since raised questions about the initial testing methodology and the severity of Gardasil's side effects....  (Emphasis added.)  http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/08/15/perry-backs-off-texas-vaccine...

I think the sudden change of heart so soon after the relevant ZetaTalk was published means at least some Chinese authorities believe the Zetas.

Comment by Planet Twelve on August 12, 2011 at 7:04pm

China is getting a battering lately from 7 of 10 plate interactions. Earthquakes, collapsing bridges and structures, flooding, sinking cities and more. It would be smart to ditch these trains.

As you say, astrogal50...more Zeta prediction accuracy!!
