Event Update For 2017-11-08

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2017-11-08 - Hydrogen sulfide blowing around in Birmingham and Royal Oak (Michigan), near the Rouge River:

Quote: "There’s something foul in Birmingham and Royal Oak. Just ask the hundreds of residents who’ve flooded the phone lines of the Birmingham and Royal Oak fire departments along with Consumers Energy in the last few weeks reporting a gas smell. Royal Oak assistant Fire Chief Jim Cook says an odor of gas can be detected when crews go out to investigate but when Consumers arrives with it’s equipment, no gas leak can be found. Most of the calls are in the area of 14 mile and Coolidge, west of Crooks and East of Woodward."

Quote: "Cook says after weeks of searching they believe the culprit is hydrogen sulfide. A common sewer gas which at low levels may not present a health threat, but at higher levels can be deadly."

Note: Like I've said numerous times, people are confusing the smell of the additive added to natural gas, methyl mercaptan, with the smell of hydrogen sulfide. This is another example of that...

Shortly before 3:30 p.m., staff at the Hawkins County Rural Health Consortium on Route 66 reported a mass illness. Hawkins County EMA Director Gary Murrell said a 52-year-old male came in for a regularly scheduled appointment when all of a sudden multiple staff members fell unconscious."

Quote: "The symptoms are nausea, vomiting, dizziness, lightheadedness, and one went into a seizure."

    Towards war in Lebanon

    From Pepe Escobar

    House of Saud is telling its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately (well, no big deal because there's just a few anyway).

    Hezbollah is fortifying the borders - fast.

    Rumors persist that MBS may be crowned King before Saturday.

    We're working hard on the final - and most difficult - part of the puzzle on MBS's power grab.

    House of Saud has no direct beef with Hezbollah. But then there are the usual suspects.

    Key angle is whether Sisi in Egypt would allow a direct air corridor to the Saudis (even if the only thing their pilots can hit is a stranded vulture - no offense to vultures.)

  4. Locus Of Crash

    Japan has sent two wake up calls to U.S. gamblers in the past two months, both ignored...

    The first wake up call was on August 28th when North Korea lobbed a missile over Hokkaido. The S&P was down 15 points at the open. That was the beginning of the global melt-up. Now, overnight was another 15 point gap, courtesy of the Nikkei running up to a new all time high and then reversing 1,000 points lower.

    Here is where it gets interesting. Which other market had a key reversal overnight? [Bitcoin]

    Currently the Japanese Bitcoin exchange market accounts for 61.23 percent of global Bitcoin trades, more than twice of the trading volume of the US market.

    What does this have to do with the rest of the world and U.S.?

    Hive solves a critical problem for the malware operators at the CIA. Even the most sophisticated malware implant on a target computer is useless if there is no way for it to communicate with its operators in a secure manner that does not draw attention. Using Hive even if an implant is discovered on a target computer, attributing it to the CIA is difficult by just looking at the communication of the malware with other servers on the internet. Hive provides a covert communications platform for a whole range of CIA malware to send exfiltrated information to CIA servers and to receive new instructions from operators at the CIA.

    Hive can serve multiple operations using multiple implants on target computers. Each operation anonymously registers at least one cover domain (e.g. "") for its own use. The server running the domain website is rented from commercial hosting providers as a VPS (virtual private server) and its software is customized according to CIA specifications. These servers are the public-facing side of the CIA back-end infrastructure and act as a relay for HTTP(S) traffic over a VPN connection to a "hidden" CIA server called 'Blot'. [more]

    The supernova, named iPTF14hls, has exploded multiple times over the last fifty years. Rather than giving into death in the cold wastes of space, this singular star is seemingly in a cycle of continually absorbing matter, collapsing and exploding. The team first took note of the star in 2014 because it had gone supernova and was starting to fade. But then, a few months later, the team noticed that the star was becoming brighter again. [more]
