Event Update For 2018-12-25

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.

  1. The thing I dislike about trying to post via phone is that I invariably push an errant button with my fat fingers and it disappears.

    So, after multiple attempts, here I go again.

    Today's post features more bizarre home fires, vehicle fires and the ever-popular 'medical events' but this time an EMT was among the victims. It's like when the fire house burns down. How the eff does that happen, right?

    And don't get me started on the proliferation of water-involved deaths, many in close proximity to each other. "No apparent relationship" between them . . yeah, sure.

    U.S. Stocks Just Had Their Best Day Ever – And Here Is Why That Is A REALLY Bad Sign…

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average just posted its biggest single day point gain ever. On Wednesday, the Dow shot up 1,086 points, which shattered the old record by a staggering 150 points. It truly was a remarkable day, and this is the sort of “Santa Claus rally” that investors had been hoping for. Many are convinced that this rally is an indication that the crisis of the last three months is over, but as you will see below, this sort of extreme volatility is actually a really bad sign. [more]

    "Good News, We Have Now Achieved Terminal Idiocracy"

    When I first started this blog back in 2006 I believed that the collapsing housing bubble would end the reign of Supply Side Voodoo Ponzinomics for good: The outsourcing of the 'Conomy for fun and profit. Clearly I was wrong. My mistake this past decade was not seeing that Japanification has gone global - the recycling of failed ideas over and over again each time expecting a different result. All to benefit a senile old age home incapable of handling change. Hence, another round of corporate Shock Doctrine ensued. Nine million mass layoffs to make the quarter. On top of that, the money printing and Ponzi borrowing. What makes the U.S. different than Japan is the sheer level of buffoonish arrogance extant today. An entire generation having conflated a reserve currency with "exceptionalism". Luck and hubris masquerading as previous generations' success. [more]

    Dr Tenpenny: Infanrix Hexa Vaccine

    The first vaccine they thoroughly tested was Infanrix Hexa – a six-in-one vaccine manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) that is *supposed* to contain the following antigens: tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis toxoids; inactivated poliomyelitis viral strains 1-2-3; and hepatitis B surface antigen. Shockingly, Corvelva found NONE of these antigens in the vaccine, meaning, that NO antibodies to the intended antigens will be created.

    And it gets worse. In addition to no vaccine antigens, they found the following:

    traces of 65 chemical cross-contaminants from other manufacturing lines;
    chemical toxins;
    unrecognizable macromolecules;
    various free bacterial peptides that are potential allergens and are capable of inducing autoimmune reactions. [more]
