Event Update For 2018-11-25

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.

Meanwhile the public is bombarded by a plethora of unsubstantiated "independent scientific reports" that declare glyphosate to be safe.

    General Motors And General Electric Were Both Victimized By The Same Ponzi Scheme, And They Are Both Telling Us The U.S. Economy Is In HUGE Trouble

    America’s twin economic “generals” are both in very deep trouble. General Electric was founded in 1892, and it was once one of the most powerful corporations on the entire planet. But now it is drowning in so much debt that it may be forced into bankruptcy. General Motors was founded in 1908, and at one time it was the largest automaker that the world had ever seen. But now it is closing a bunch of factories and laying off approximately 14,000 workers as it anticipates disappointing sales and a slowing economy. If the U.S. economy really was “booming”, both of these companies would probably be thriving. But as you will see below, both of them have been victimized by the exact same Ponzi scheme, and both firms are sending us very clear signals that the U.S. economy is heading for troubled waters.

    Whenever you hear the word “restructuring”, that is always a sign that things are not going well for a company. [more]

    The Big Long 2018: Hazardous Immorality

    "Lack of incentive to guard against risk when one is protected from its consequences"

    e.g. casino bailouts

    Contrary to popular belief, there is no "plunge protection team". Nevertheless, gamblers have come to believe in Central Bank omnipotence. A well cultivated delusion one decade in the making. Below we see that real demand peaked in 2008. Followed by a second peak in 2011 coinciding with peak monetary stimulus. Followed by deflation. And then coordinated stimulus again in 2016. So weak is this final "recovery", that the 2018 high in commodities is equal to the 2009 low.

    The logic of the day is that bulls can have a cozy consensus for the better part of a decade straight, but if bears have a consensus for five minutes, it's clearly recipe for new highs. Which is precisely the delusion that the Central Bank "put" has wrought.

    Be that as it may, the signs that the party is over keep piling up in plain view. [more]

    Severe weather to make late-season appearance in southern US

    While much of the nation has made the transition to winter weather, a burst of springlike severe weather is on the horizon for the southern United States.
