Event Update For 2018-12-09

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.

    Circus Maximus: The Last Trump Casino

    Societal corruption expands slowly over time - one debased moral standard at a time. The next thing you know, a corrupt casino croupier is running the entire government for maximum personal profit, under the ad-slogan "drain the swamp"...

    Getting back to the last pump and dump, I have steadfastly maintained that the casino does not exist for the sake of public investors at large. It exists as a public dumping ground for insider option/share disbursements and Wall Street IPOs. It's their exit strategy. When deployed in conjunction with stock buybacks using corporate profits to offset the dilution, it's quite a seedy racket indeed: Using public shareholders' own money to buy out a small cadre of insiders at elevated prices.

    Share buybacks were illegal up until 1982, because they were considered a form of stock market manipulation. Fast forward ~35 years and now, stock buybacks are 4% of GDP i.e. the same amount as Trump's tax-cut driven Federal deficit. All under the well-cultivated delusion that what is good for the stock market is good for the arbitraged U.S. economy. Even Trump doesn't believe that bullshit. [more]

    Pentagon accounting ‘error’: US taxpayer foots fuel bill for Saudi jets pounding Yemen (VIDEO)

    Pentagon accounting errors have led to the US taxpayer footing the bill for years of refueling for Saudi jets bombing Yemen. The oversight makes the US' support for Riyadh's air campaign even more intolerable, an analyst told RT.
    The Pentagon has acknowledged that the Department of Defense “failed to charge the Saudi-led coalition adequately for fuel and refueling services” as Gulf state warplanes rained bombs on Yemen. The size of the “error” naturally compounded over the more than three years that the US offered its services, resulting in an unpaid invoice that likely totals tens of millions of dollars. [more]
