Event Update For 2020-03-08

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.

2020-03-08 - Stony corals preparing for a mass extinction event, scientists report:

Quote: "Stony corals provide habitat for an eye-popping one-fourth of the ocean's species. They serve as the centerpiece of a rich and diverse ecosystem, which is why their recent behavior has scientists concerned. New research shows that stony corals around the world are hunkering down into survival mode as they prepare for a mass extinction event, according to a new study published in Scientific Reports."

Quote: "The international research team was composed of scientists from New York, California, Israel, England and Germany. They noticed a suite of behaviors that correspond to a survival response commensurate with how they behaved during the last mass extinction 66 million years ago, according to the new study. 'When we finally put all this together and saw the result, for me it was that moment when the hair on the back of your neck stands up,' said marine biologist David Gruber, from The City University of New York, to Newsweek. 'It was like, Oh my goodness, [the corals] are doing exactly what they did back then.'"

Quote: "Corals seem to be preparing to jump across an extinction boundary, while we are putting our foot further on the pedal."

Note: From this, one can conclude that stony corals are a helluva lot smarter than we are!

2020-03-08 - Coronavirus death toll rises to 366 in Italy with 7,375 cases, serious travel restrictions imposed:

Quote: "Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced early Sunday that the entire region of Lombardy and a number of provinces in other regions were put under lockdown as the coronavirus continued to spread throughout the country. The new measures will apply to about a quarter of the Italian population and will be in force at least until April 3.In the middle of the night, Conte signed a decree that imposes new restrictions to the movement of people in the region of Lombardy and in a number of northern provinces. The entry and exit to and from these areas will be allowed only in exceptional cases."

  1. Good morning Jonny, everyone. What a week this is shaping up to be. The weeks and months following don't promise any better, either.

    "Good news" on coronavirus in the US

    GOOD NEWS: US deaths from the coronavirus could be reduced to 1.1 million by July 4th via “social distancing” measures, new projection shows

    The number of Americans killed by the coronavirus by July4th can be reduced to only 1.1 million — or even just 1,300 with a far more aggressive approach — through the pursuit of “social distancing” measures, our new projection simulation shows (when using an R0 value of 2.4, which still may be far too low).

    “Social distancing” essentially means medical martial law. Our new pandemic projection model shows it absolutely works to halt the spread of the virus. That’s why Italy just declared medical martial law across the entire country, essentially ordering all citizens to self-quarantine and not leave their homes across the entire country. It’s now crystal clear that medical martial law can stop the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. [more; bone-headed "leadership" will probably resist this until there's no choice - by which time it will be too late]

    [following that we have this from Hal Turner also]

    COVERT INTEL FROM INSIDE US GOV'T: HPCON activated, COOP Pending - As for Citizens "Let them eat cake"

    By March 25th, things will begin to go full Mad Max here in the United States.

    Over the weekend, the U.S. military activated HPCON, placing bases in hot spots at nearly the highest level and CONUS at the second level.

    I was able to pull up the HPCON chart from the US Army. We are currently at level "C" where close contact is not advised.

    Level "D" -the highest- is essentially widespread quarantines/lockdowns and military intervention.

    In nearly 20 years of doing what it is that I do, this system has never been activated like this. Ever.

    Government agencies as well as Congress are a hair trigger away from implementing full COOP plans. That talk continues and is now leaking out into the mainstream news.

    COOP is an acronym for "Continuation Of Operations," where federal agencies impose their own kind of lockdown, limiting activities only to those essential to the public. Non-essential employees would already be furloughed until the crisis passes.

    Your final warning will be when the USPS curtails [limits deliveries to a only few days a week] service across the country... but by then we'll already be close to social chaos. Locally -in those cities where where infections rage- The Postmaster has the authority to enact curtailment as needed to protect his/her employees. But again: this is an anethema because -officially- it admits defeat and that's the LAST thing any federal agency wants. [more]

    The staying power of coronavirus 2x as official 'safe distance'

    [more later]

  4. Man, it's gettin' crazy all over the world. Here where i live, there's a new case in Philly, another 2 new cases in (Burlington County) NJ as one (north Jersey) person died as a result of COVID-19. Seems every day more cases are being discovered (which is what you can expect from an exponentially growing pandemic).

    Italy is totally locked down - the entire country [from Hal Turner]!
    [here's why]
    Coronavirus death toll in Italy jumps to 631 from 463 in a day, 10,000+ cases throughout the country, plus other COVID-19 updates

    Tuesday's jump in the deaths, from the previous record of 463, represents a 36 percent rise and the largest in absolute numbers since the infection was first noticed on February 21, the Civil Protection Agency said.

    Some 877 patients were in intensive care, up from 733 on Monday. The number of patients who recovered has also risen, however, and stood at 1,004 on Tuesday as opposed to 724 the day before.

    The rising numbers come on the day the nation-wide quarantine imposed by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte went into effect, closing off Italy's borders. All public gatherings, including sporting events, have been banned and civilian movement has been restricted. Schools and universities have been shuttered through April 3. [more]

    Cuomo Announces New York 'Containment Area' for Coronavirus, Closes Schools, Brings In National Guard

    To prevent the spread of a new coronavirus, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced places within a containment area where large groups of people gather, including schools, would close for two weeks and the National Guard would be brought in to assist.

    New York has seen 173 cases of a new coronavirus that causes COVID-19 and is one of three states in the United States experiencing a large outbreak. Thousands of people in New York are under self-quarantine, businesses have told employees to work from home and some schools have chosen to close.

    On Tuesday, Cuomo announced that all schools within a "containment area" in New Rochelle will be closed from Thursday until March 25. A specific list of schools wasn't provided, but Dr. Howard Zucker, commissioner of health for New York state, said the "containment area" is defined as a one-mile radius around the area of the Young Israel of New Rochelle Temple. The temple was locked down after Lawrence Garbuz, a congregant, tested positive for the virus. [more]

    How the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms became corrupt and abusive

    It's unlikely that there is a single federal alphabet organization less popular among the readership of this website than the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. These are the people who gave us both the Siege at Ruby Ridge and the Siege of Waco. What's more, they may well be engaged in an entirely unconstitutional exercise: monitoring and patrolling the gun ownership of law-abiding citizens.

    There's also a solid case to be made that the ATF is a rogue organization, the most corrupt of the federal alphabet agencies. This can be seen through a number of scandals beginning with Ruby Ridge, threading through the siege at Mount Carmel in Waco, and continuing to the notorious "Fast and Furious" scandal. [more]

  7. A story about how a Tribal Fire Crew Rescued the Real Smokey Bear

    This version of how Smokey Bear was originally discovered was posted on the U.S. Forest Service website by Sandy Marin, USFS Tribal Relations.

    This year, we celebrated Smokey Bear’s 75th birthday as a national fire prevention icon. Many know Smokey’s message: “Only YOU can prevent wildfires,” but fewer people may know that Smokey was a real American black bear rescued, in the spring of 1950, from a raging wildfire in New Mexico.

    The Los Tablos and Capitan Gap fires, which burned over 17,000 acres, were stoked by 70-mile per hour winds that made the fires hard to fight. The Taos Pueblo Snowball crew formed when the war chief of the tribe called all available firefighters to quench the blaze in the Lincoln National Forest. Twenty-five volunteers boarded a school bus and began the long journey to fight the growing fires, fueled by gusting winds and high temperatures. It was only the second fire-fighting experience for the rookie crew. The men spent 28 long days fighting the fires.

    The crew rescued the five-pound American black bear cub who later became known as “Smokey” out of the embers. Adolph Samora, a member of the Snowball crew, remembers putting out fire hotspots when some other firefighters called him over to what looked like a crumpled jacket lying on the ground.

    “The little cub was covered,” he said. “[A crewmember] picked it up and placed it in my arms. The cub had blisters all over his hands and feet.” Crew members wrapped the three-month-old cub in their own jackets to protect his badly burned paws while they transported the little bear to safety.

    A local family nursed Smokey back to health, and the bear was later moved to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., where he lived for the next 26 years. [more]
