Event Update For 2020-08-13

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.

2020-08-13 - Unknown gassy odor sickening people in and around coasal Mossel Bay (South Africa):

Quote: "Mossel Bay Advertiser reports that residents from Dana Bay, Mossel Bay, Heiderand, Asla Park and KwaNonqaba have been experiencing a terrible, gassy stench that leaves many with headaches and nausea."

2020-08-13 - Melting of Greenland's ice sheet has passed the point of no return:

Quote: "Greenland's ice sheet has melted to a point of no return, and efforts to slow global warming will not stop it from disintegrating. That's according to a new study by researchers at Ohio State University."

Quote: "The ice loss has been so massive in recent years, she said, that it has caused a measurable change in the gravitational field over Greenland."

Quote: "The paper was coincidentally released on the same day that the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported that July 2020 was the second-warmest July on record and that Arctic ice is currently at a record low for summer – the lowest in 42 years of record-keeping."

Note: That's it for the the vast majority of the major cities of the world then, since Greenland's ice sheet will add 23 feet to sea level rise. No more New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Florida, London, Shanghai, Tokyo, Sydney, Seattle, Mobile, New Orleans, much of Vietnam, etc, etc. They're all on borrowed time. The human race may not even last that long though. There are worse threats than merely having almost all of our major cities submerged in the rising oceans...

Note: That should help push us over the extinction cliff a little faster, so congratulations to everyone wanting to suffer and die sooner rather than later!

2020-08-13 - Man has 'medical episode' on trail near coastal Torrey Pines State Beach (California):

Quote: "Firefighters and lifeguards carried a hiker to safety Thursday morning after he apparently suffered a medical emergency on a steep trail leading from a bluff to Torrey Pines State Beach."

2020-08-13 - Lumber business heavily damaged by massive fire in Rockland Township (Pennsylvania):

2020-08-13 - Excess deaths indicate COVID-19 causing more deaths than indicated by confirmed cases:

Quote: "The number of deaths in the United States through July 2020 is 8% to 12% higher than it would have been if the coronavirus pandemic had never happened. That’s at least 164,937 deaths above the number expected for the first seven months of the year — 16,183 more than the number attributed to COVID-19 thus far for that period — and it could be as high as 204,691."

Note: This is why excess death stats are often used in pandemics. There's nothing ambiguous about counting bodies going into the ground, whereas tests may have false positives or false negatives, or may never be administered at all. Not all excess deaths will be a DIRECT pathogenic death. A grandson may die of COVID-19 and then because he doesn't get grandpa to the hospital for his dialysis treatment, grandpa dies from renal failure. But had the pandemic not been there, the grandson wouldn't have gotten infected and died, grandpa would've gotten his dialysis treatment, and neither would be dead. Even if both people were tested, and both tests were accurate, the virus would only be listed as the cause of one of those deaths, but both deaths WERE actually caused by the virus, and both deaths WILL show up in excess death statistics.

Excess death statistics measure the impact of a pandemic in terms of lives lost without worrying about whether person A or person B died from the direct effects of the PATHOGEN or not - it's enough to know that the deaths were the result of the PANDEMIC, and the number of lives lost to the current pandemic is obviously higher than the death tolls we've been given, else the number of bodies going into the ground would not be as high as it is. E.g., they are somewhat downplaying the body count resulting from this pandemic, and the excess death count reveals the extent of the downplaying...

2020-08-13 - Excess death counts in New York City from 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic and COVID-19 pandemic are in the same ballpark:

Quote: "Excess deaths associated with the two pandemics are in the same ballpark during New York City peaks. The excess mortality in New York City during the peak of the 1918 flu pandemic and the excess mortality during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic were similar, according to a brief research report published in today’s JAMA Network Open."

Quote: "During the peak months of the 1918 flu epidemic, there were 31,589 deaths from all causes among the city’s 5.5 million residents, according to Jeremy Samuel Faust, M.D., M.S., at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and his colleagues, Zhenqiu Lin, Ph.D., at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and Carlos de Rio, M.D., at the Emory University School of Medicine. That works out to 287.17 deaths per 100,000 person-months."

Quote: "During the early phase of the COVID-19 outbreak in the city, between March 11 and May 11, there were 33,465 deaths from all causes among the 8.3 million residents, Faust and his colleagues calculated. That works out to 202.08 deaths per 100,000 person-months, so a lower proportion than the one for the 1918 flu epidemic peak period but still in the same ballpark."

Note: So 202.08 deaths per 100,000 people for COVID-19 compared to 287.17 deaths per 100,000 people for the 1918 Spanish Flu, which makes COVID-19 about 70% as deadly when measured across the peaks of both pandemics. That tracks pretty well with the overall death count too. We're at about 75% of the death count, nationally, of the 1918 Spanish Flu at this point in that pandemic. COVID-19 could yet be the deadliest US pandemic ever if we don't do much to tame it and/or if it simply continues for a longer period of time than the 1918 Spanish Flu, especially if it continues killing 1,000+ people or more per day...

2020-08-13 - COVID-19 death toll rises by nearly 1,500 in a day in the US, worst single-day death toll since May:

Quote: "The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus illness COVID-19 world-wide rose above 20.7 million on Thursday and the U.S. suffered its biggest death toll since May with almost 1,500 fatalities counted in a single day."

Note: That brings us back to more than 1 death per minute...

2020-08-13 - CDC director warns America is in for the worst fall we’ve ever had:


  1. Sleep-in Saturday around here, Jonny. i trust your fans are all well. It'd be informative if they'd check in now and again with personal stories from their locations.

    The Gates-sponsored Covid-19 engineered virus bio-weapon continues to wreak havoc on communities and economies around the world. Though the accuracy of the numbers can be argued, the testing is suspect and accounts of government-backed financial incentives to pad them are taken into account, it's nonetheless a real thing having very real effects on our lives and livelihoods. It will probably lead to draconian policies and heavy-handed methods to "control the population" sometime soon - maybe when the food shortages hit this fall.

    The Attempted COVID Coup of 2020

    What history will record as the great COVID coup of 2020 is based on lies and fear manufactured by America’s ruling class—led by the Democratic Party and aided by the complaisance of most Republican politicians.

    In March, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) presented the coronavirus to the Western world as a danger equivalent to the plague. But China’s experience, which its government obfuscated, had already shown that COVID-19 was much less like the plague and more like the flu. All that has happened since followed from falsifying this basic truth.

    Americans were led to believe that the virus was unusually contagious, and that it would kill up to one in 20 persons it infected—a 5 percent infection/fatality rate (IFR). Today, we still lack definitive, direct knowledge of COVID-19’s true lethality. The absence of that knowledge allows bureaucrats to continue fearmongering.

    By May, a host of studies in the U.S. and around the world showing that the vast majority of COVID cases cause mild symptoms or none, and showing the IFR to be equal to or lower than that for most flus, forced the CDC to conclude that the lethality rate, far from being 5 percent, was 0.26%––double that of a typical flu. Instead of amending their recommendations in the face of this reality, the CDC and the U.S. government tried to hide it by manipulating the definition and number of COVID “cases.”

    Federal officials defined “cases” as people sick enough to be hospitalized who also tested positive for the virus—this represented the “curve” that we were urged to sacrifice so much to “flatten,” lest a wave of hospitalizations overwhelm our health-care system. That wave never came. The CDC and feds began labeling mere infections as “cases” and stopped reporting “cases” together with the number of deaths. They did this to frighten the inattentive public about “spiking COVID cases.” They also inflated the number of deaths attributed to COVID by including illnesses such as pneumonia and influenza and others into the death figures.

    In reality, those who died with or of COVID-19 nearly always suffered from other diseases as well, such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and compromised lungs, in addition to being elderly and infirm. COVID-19’s effect on ordinary healthy persons is considerably milder than those of ordinary respiratory diseases.

    COVID-19 is not America’s plague. There was never the slightest evidence that the virus could produce mass casualties; all evidence pointed in the opposite direction. Instead, the ruling class took this opportunity to extort the general public’s compliance with its agendas. Their claim to speak on behalf of “science” is an attempt to avoid being held accountable for the enormous harm that they are doing. They continue doing it because they want to hold on to the power the panic has brought them.

    In sum, the lockdowns have been inflicted and perpetuated by people who care more about your subjugation than your health. They want to wreck the U.S. economy and increase the Democratic Party’s chances in the 2020 election. And they might succeed. [more]

  2. 640 European doctors gather to discuss the overreaction to COVID-19 and how it's damaging society

    On July 27, 2020, a group of frontline doctors in the US held a gathering in Washington D.C. where they expressed their concerns with COVID from a frontline doctor point of view. We reported:

    Frontline doctors from across the US held a "White Coat Summit" on Monday in Washington DC to dispel the misinformation and myths surrounding the coronavirus.

    The doctors are very concerned with the disinformation campaign being played out in the far left American media today.

    From their website: "If Americans continue to let so-called experts and media personalities make their decisions, the great American experiment of a Constitutional Republic with Representative Democracy, will cease."

    These doctors claimed HCQ worked and was saving lives. Shortly after their presentation, and after 17 million views, the videos from the doctors were taken down by Facebook and YouTube. Americans were not allowed to see the truth.

    One doctor at the conference said:

    We want to defend our families and our citizens. Well and to close this, this story is really quite simple. If you look behind the curtains, you'll see ok, this medical story with COVID-19, we have the facts - IT'S A SCAM - IT'S FAKE.

    So we need to ask who gets the benefit out of this and who has got the power to CREATE THIS FAKE.

    Well and the target, it's about you. You the citizens, you and the economy, it's about the economy stupid. It's about the economy.

    The doctors concluded that we need solidarity.

    Now European doctors gather to ask how did we get here with COVID.

    People are dying from COVID not from catching the virus, but from electing not to have surgeries that are needed.

    The doctors have a website where they share more on the worldwide reactions to COVID.

    The world is waking up to the COVID-19 scam. [more]

    Virus Vaccine Rush Leaves Little Recourse for Anyone It Harms

    Americans who suffer adverse reactions to coronavirus vaccines that the U.S. is racing to develop will have a hard time getting compensated for injuries from the drugs.

    That’s because pandemic-related claims for vaccines will be routed to a rarely used federal program set up to encourage drugmakers to help combat public health emergencies. It spares pharmaceutical and device makers from costly liability lawsuits in exchange for taxpayers compensating injured patients -- though it doesn’t guarantee there’s funding to do so. [more]

    "Twitter just suspended me for opposing masks. Who knows if I'll ever be back," Mitchell wrote, adding sarcastically "I'm sure their decision wasn't political at all." [more]
