Event Update For 2017-10-08

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.

    George Soros Investment Fund Bought "PUTS" on 1.35 Million MGM Stocks 60 or so Days BEFORE Attack at MGM Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas

    [someone should side-line this guy]

    When a person thinks a stock will go up significantly, he can buy a CALL, to lock-in a sale price.  Conversely, when he thinks a stock will FALL in value, he can buy a "PUT"
    So why did George Soros' Investment Fund think - in August 2017, just 8 weeks or so before the Mandalay Bay Massacre -- that the value of MGM Stock would FALL?  Why did Soros Investments buy "PUTS" on 1,350,000 MGM Shares?  [more]

    Las Vegas Shooting Coverage - Corporate Media Trying to Silence Alternative Media

    YouTube moves to shut down all independent media coverage of Las Vegas shooting in desperate maneuver to protect the “official” narrative

    Remember: When all five mainstream news channels are reporting exactly the same thing, that’s usually because they’re all lying in unison. It’s all the same news because they all got the same memo that morning. In contrast, real journalists don’t achieve 100% conformity in their analyses. (Only fake news is homogenized for your mindless consumption.) But YouTube and Google want to make sure you never see any diverse news because someone might contradict the official lies being spewed that day.

    To bypass Google / YouTube censorship, bookmark for real-time news updates from all the top censored news sources on the internet, and use to search the independent media. [more]

    When the globalist empire falls

    In short: when this system collapses, it will, just as in the Rome empire, experience the collapse of much of the critical infrastructure. It will simply not be possible to feed as many people as before. The result can be widespread starvation disasters to an extent that humanity has never seen before. There are 37 megacities in the world today and the largest of them have over 30 million inhabitants. If there is a breakdown in water supply, or energy or food delivery, then such cities will become uninhabitable. [more]

    Tropical storm Ophelia poised to tie a hurricane season record more than a century old

    The feverish 2017 hurricane season doesn't seem to be letting up: on Monday, Tropical Storm Ophelia formed in the central Atlantic and is expected to become a hurricane this week.

    While the storm poses no threat to land, it could become the 10th consecutive storm to grow to hurricane strength - a streak of intense systems that will tie a record last set in the late 1800s. It comes in a season that has already produced five major hurricanes, including three ferocious Category 5 storms, and 15 named storms.

    The amount of accumulated cyclone energy - a measure of the intensity and longevity of storms - is also 254 percent higher than average with seven weeks left in the season, said University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy. [more]

  8. At least 11 dead and 100 missing in Northern California wildfires

    Scott Alonso, communications director for Sonoma County, said family members have been reporting those missing in calls to a designated hotline in the county. He said it is possible that many or most of the missing are safe but simply can't be reached because of the widespread loss of cell service and other communications.

    The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the fire has consumed another 2,000 acres since Monday afternoon and is now at 27,000 acres. 1,500 homes have been destroyed. [more]

    Anaheim Hills, CA: Twenty-four homes burned so far in 6K-acre Canyon Fire

    A brush fire that erupted in Anaheim Hills late Monday morning was fueled by strong Santa Ana winds and threatening homes, burning 6,000 acres so far, according to Anaheim Fire and Rescue.

    At least 24 homes have destroyed in Anaheim, Orange and Tustin and more have been damaged. Fire officials noted that numbers could change. About 5,000 structures are threatened. Firefighters managed to get the fire 5 percent contained as of 9 p.m. Monday.

    The fire, labeled the Canyon Fire 2, started near Coal Canyon and the 91 Freeway - near where the Canyon Fire started several weeks ago. That fire burned east toward Corona, while this fire is burning west toward Anaheim, Anaheim Fire's Daron Wyatt said - at a much higher rate due to high winds, burning in hours the number of acres that the first Canyon Fire took a week to burn.

    The only thing worse than not standing for the national anthem is being told you have to stand for the national anthem. Unfortunately, Trump is Terminal Idiocracy. He's the only proof anyone needs, to know this is all ending...

    No matter how asinine this circus becomes there's always someone willing to crawl out from under their rock to defend taking the very ideas that got us here to the next level of fraud. Therein lies the problem for Trump's acolytes. He is Terminal Idiocracy. He's a test for who would recoil in disgust at what America has devolved into, versus who would embrace all aspects of this fraud and spectacle. 

    Trump can't be . . . saviour in the proxy culture war, which by the way is merely a diversion to cover up the fact that multinationals are strip mining the country. Why? Because Trump doesn't represent culture, he represents abject lack of culture. In the words of right wing apologist, Ann Coulter, who wrote the book "In Trump We Trust", he's "grotesque". Faint praise indeed. Ignorance and arrogance are not culture. Nor is sociopathic lying, misogyny, thinly veiled racism, false bravado, self-aggrandizement, war-mongering, nor strip mining healthcare to pay for tax cuts. [more]

    Luckily William, who is reportedly being tested for autism, was found later that afternoon in a non-working truck about a quarter-mile from his home by Blake Carroll, 10, who heard the truck's horn beeping as he was getting off the school bus

    But William wasn't found alone--the family's pet dog was by his side the entire time. Authorities believe that the toddler wandered off on his own, but he was lucky that man's best friend was there by his side to protect him from harm.

    "Every time we found his footprint, we found the dog footprint right beside him. So the dog traveled with him all day," Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson told WLOX News. "When the little boy was found the dog was still circling the truck and scratching on the truck." [more]

    Wildfires are endangering parts of California's $2 billion weed industry

    [NOT THE Sinsemilla!!!]

    California produces over half of the marijuana consumed in the US. The state's legal cannabis sales totaled approximately $2 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach $5 billion in coming years, according to an analysis by University of California-Davis researchers.

    Researchers estimate that four of out five pounds of California-grown cannabis, which is usually harvested in the fall, is shipped out of state.

    Wildfires that burn close to marijuana fields are known for giving the crop a smokey flavor.

    "Especially when it’s ripe — I can tell you from personal experience, wildfire definitely will make your cannabis have a smoky flavor to it; just like wine," Kristin Nevedal, executive director of the Humboldt County-based International Cannabis Farmers Association told The Chronicle in September.
