Event Update For 2017-12-10

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.

  1. Hey Jonny, good quote!

    Good morning everyone. Here are a few articles to keep you informed of what's going on politically, socially, economically and environmentally from various sites on the web. Feel free to ignore any or all.

    Analyst: They ultimately need the financial markets to implode

    Market analyst Lynette Zang says even with the new tax cuts passed in Congress, the market looks like "it's running out of steam."

    In my opinion, they want us cashless, and they want everything in digital form. They want to dematerialize wealth at least for the masses. I am 100% certain that this Bitcoin craze, and all of this, is about getting people used to digital currencies. So, when they shift us from the debt based system to the digital system, we are more comfortable with it and more familiar with it."

    Zang predicts in the next crash, "real estate, stocks and bonds will all crash." When will this happen? Zang says, "Enjoy your Christmas," but in 2018, all bets are off. Zang explains, "In 2018, I don't think they can hold these things together. I think we will see a major market correction in 2018. When that happens, that will cause the derivative implosion. We have to feel a lot of pain. . . . I think we are going to go into hyperinflation, and I think we will start to see that in 2018 because I think we will see these markets implode. I think we will see QE4 (money printing) for sure. . . . We have QE right now propping it up, according to the Fed's own documents." [more]

    Anothery mystery Clinton acquaintance death: Close friend of Hillary planning to "step away from politics" found dead in apparent suicide

    How many people do you know who have died mysteriously or of a bizarre suicide, or have been beaten to death or murdered in a hail of bullets, how about someone who committed suicide by shooting themselves in the back of the head?

    For most of us the answer is none, but if you are Bill and Hillary Clinton, the answer to that question is at least 56 - and possibly more.

    The Clinton dead pool list has grown extensively over the years and we have a new 'suicide' to add to the list. [more]

    The geopolitics of the war in Syria

    Syria - ISIS Is Defeated - The U.S. Is Next In Line

    December 09, 2017 "Information Clearing House" - The Islamic State in Syrian and Iraq is officially defeated. The UN resolution which allowed other countries to fight ISIS within Syria and Iraq no longer applies. But the U.S. military, despite the lack of any legal basis, wants to continue its occupation of Syria's north-east. The attempt to do so will fail. Its Kurdish allies in the area are already moving away from it and now prefer Russian protection. Guerrilla forces to fight the U.S. "presence" are being formed. The U.S. plan is shortsighted and stupid. If the U.S. insists on staying there many of its soldiers will die.

    Putin orders withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria during surprise visit to Khmeimim Airbase

    The commander of the Russian forces in Syria, Colonel-General Sergey Surovikin, informed Putin that about 70,000 sq km of Syrian territory had been liberated and 32,000 terrorists killed in the last seven months of the operation. Russian special forces, military police, sapper teams and 25 aircraft will now leave Syria, and the field hospital will be removed.

    Putin also warned that should terrorists attempt to “rear their heads” in Syria again, Russia will strike them as “they have never seen before.” Russia will continue to use Khmeimim Airbase and the Syrian port of Tartus, which provides technical support for the Russian Navy, while the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria will also remain.

    In Kids’ Climate Lawsuit, Judges Question Government Effort to Get Case Dismissed

    Red Flag Warnings in seven states, December 11, 2017

  4. Last week I shared the link to JJFH with this guy named Kevin who has a YT channel on abrupt climate change. Yesterday he read the JJFH and posted the link. If you want to listen scroll to the 8:30 mark. A lot of folks from Hambone's channel also listen to Kevin so this may generate some interest over there as well.

  5. Well, he did a good job reading it! I'd never heard it out loud before, just my own voice inside my head, so it was interesting to hear it spoken aloud, especially in a voice not my own. Thanks, Mike!

  6. The gas is coming to get me!! More cases in my childhood hometown and in my current hometown! Oh me, oh my! Lol...

    On that car fire at the W Hotel in downtown Austin...This is by far the swankiest hotel in Austin. It is in the same building with the new Austin City Limits live studio. Most of the big entertainers and celebrities stay at the W. But what I really wanted to mention is that it is just a few blocks north of Town Lake. Oh I'm sorry it's now Lady Bird Lake. It's actually a wider section of the Colorado River dammed up. Through downtown its about 200 to 250 yards wide.

  7. Riverside Community School District school bus goes up in flames and kills two people in driveway at home near Oakland (Iowa):

  8. Quote: "Police in Shenendoah, Iowa say the driver and one student on board died when a school bus caught fire Tuesday morning."

    Didn't take long to get with the clarifying!
