Event Update For 2018-02-27

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. Things are definitely getting weird. It's not so much about all the "medical emergencies" causing vehicle accidents and other "sudden death" experiences; it's not even all the homes exploding, underground electrical vault fires or telephone poles bursting into flames that have become "normal" occurrences over the past say decade or less. To me, it seems the "weirdness" feeling is due to the proliferation of anomalies - like large cracks appearing in the ground out of nowhere, water retreating from shorelines, lakes drying up suddenly, atmospheric strangeness (like that recent sky phenomenon that stretched from pole to pole), the fact that in February the sun was extremely hot if you were outside for any length of time (as I was cleaning up the front yard) on one particular day. There's lots more to it, but one no longer knows what to expect on a daily basis, like walking along a sidewalk, and suddenly you're 10 feet down in a sinkhole.

    Jonny captures all the JJFH incidents that get reported and these have become REGULAR events! For example, I picked two seemingly random items from all the stories he posts that have very little to do with each other - garbage truck fires and JJFH events in ONE town in England - to "keep track of." Well, THIS month started out very quiet for Hull (which usually dominates in number of incidents compared to garbage truck fires), but by the end we have a fantastic run of 5 days in a row of Hull happenings AND we also have garbage truck fires (happening elsewhere) AT THE SAME TIME as Hull incidents 5 different times in this short month! This is NUTS! Previously, this was RARE.

    Ok. On to other things. Thanks Mike for the link to MrMBB333's new channel with all kinds of interesting and weird stories covering from space to the vast ocean to land. I bookmarked that one too (in addition to Black Bear News, also suggested by you, which I listen to often when i'm posting here).

    Blackstone Intel Being Permanently Deleted By YouTube

    Terrorism and the United States of America

    Editor’s note: Theoretical physicist Mujahid Kamran serves as Rector at the University of Lahore in Lahore, Pakistan. Formerly professor of physics and vice-chancellor at the University of the Punjab, he is currently involved in an academic freedom case involving that university, where he suffered pushback from the usual suspects due to his penchant for speaking truth to power.

    He has published scientific books, biographical works on Albert Einstein, Abdus-Salam, and AQ Khan, and recently several excellent treatments of 9/11, the international bankers, and the New World Order.

    1. Actually Blackstone Intelligence has one more strike to go before he's deleted, but he fully expects this to happen soon since he's received two strikes in just three days. Also know that Hambone received a strike a few days ago for a video that he did five years ago. What was the topic? Sandy Hook. What does Blackstone Intelligence do a lot of videos on? Mass shootings, especially Las Vegas. What videos did Infowars receive their strikes? The Florida school shooting.

      Hmmmmmmmm.....I'm seeing a pattern here. It is quite something that the YT censorship bots when back five years on Hambone's video. The only video he has ever done on a shooting event, and it was a tongue-in-cheek approach. He wasn't even truly endorsing the "crisis actor" theory. But the bots don't care. They just look for "unapproved words and phrases".

      By the end of this year YouTube will be a very different platform. It will not be viable for a lot of content creators any longer.

      Oh....Fuck Alphabet, Inc. and the "Company" it works hand-in-hand with. (As in The Company...nudge nudge).

Retired guy & his wife who live across the street from me got back late last night from FL, where they've been for 6 weeks (dude drove all the way in one shot).

"They seem to have tumbled into the water and would not, or could not, let go of their grip on one another."
