Event Update For 2020-12-24

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.

    Whether you believe the coronavirus is a deadly virus worth observing public health measures to avoid—or an overblown "flu"—there's one thing anyone could agree with: It'd be good to know if you had it. That's why one study, published in the journal Frontiers in Public Health, and led by experts at the USC Michelson Center's Convergent Science Institute in Cancer, proved so engaging: researchers said they discovered the order COVID symptoms usually presented themselves. "COVID-19 patients have symptoms similar to other common illnesses," wrote the authors.

    Tax breaks for the rich don’t boost the economy – “Our research shows that the economic case for keeping taxes on the rich low is weak”

    according to new research by LSE and King’s College London

    The paper, published by LSE’s International Inequalities Institute, uses data from 18 OECD countries, including the UK and the US, over the last five decades. The Economic Consequences of Major Tax Cuts for the Rich, by David Hope and Julian Limberg, shows that the last 50 years were a period of falling taxes on the rich in the advanced economies. Major tax cuts were spread across countries and throughout the observation period but were particularly clustered in the late 1980s.

    “Our results show that…major tax cuts for the rich increase the top 1% share of pre-tax national income in the years following the reform. The magnitude of the effect is sizeable; on average, each major reform leads to a rise in top 1% share of pre-tax national income of 0.8 percentage points. The results also show that economic performance, as measured by real GDP per capita and the unemployment rate, is not significantly affected by major tax cuts for the rich. The estimated effects for these variables are statistically indistinguishable from zero.” [more]

    Minnesota lawmakers say coronavirus deaths could be inflated by 40% after reviewing death certificates

    State Rep. Mary Franson and state Sen. Scott Jensen released a video last week revealing that after reviewing thousands of death certificates in the state, 40% did not have COVID-19 as the underlying cause of death.

    "I have other examples where COVID isn't the underlying cause of death, where we have a fall. Another example is we have a freshwater drowning. We have dementia. We have a stroke and multiorgan failure," Franson said in the video.

    She added that in one case, a person who was ejected from a car was "counted as a COVID death" because the virus was in his system.

    "For 17 years, the CDC document that guides us as physicians to do death certificates has stood, but this year, we were told, through the Department of Health and the CDC, that the rules were changing if COVID-19 was involved." [uh . . BINGO]

    "If it's COVID-19, we're told now it doesn't matter if it was actually the diagnosis that caused death. If someone had it, they died of it," he said. [there ya go]

    In Tennessee, for example, a hospital retracted a death certificate for a man who tested negative for the virus three times but was listed as a victim of the pandemic.

    In Colorado, a county coroner's office pushed back against the state's claim that another victim, who tested positive for the virus, died of it in Montezuma County despite dying of alcohol poisoning.

    Franson and Jensen noted in their video that while the deaths attributed to the virus appear inflated, this does not mean the virus should be treated without caution.

    "The COVID-19 disease is real. There is no question," Jensen said.

    Alien hunters discover mysterious signal from Proxima Centauri [from Scientific American]

    Found this autumn in archival data gathered last year, the signal appears to emanate from the direction of our neighboring star and cannot yet be dismissed as Earth-based interference, raising the very faint prospect that it is a transmission from some form of advanced extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) — a so-called "technosignature."

    Most curiously, it occupies a very narrow band of the radio spectrum: 982 megahertz, specifically, which is a region typically bereft of transmissions from human-made satellites and spacecraft. "We don't know of any natural way to compress electromagnetic energy into a single bin in frequency" such as this one, Siemion says. Perhaps, he says, some as-yet-unknown exotic quirk of plasma physics could be a natural explanation for the tantalizingly concentrated radio waves. But "for the moment, the only source that we know of is technological."

    Smith began sifting through the data in June of this year, but it was not until late October that he stumbled upon the curious narrowband emission, needle-sharp at 982.002 megahertz, hidden in plain view in the Proxima Centauri observations. From there, things happened fast — with good reason. "It's the most exciting signal that we've found in the Breakthrough Listen project, because we haven't had a signal jump through this many of our filters before," says Sofia Sheikh from Penn State University, who helmed the subsequent analysis of the signal for Breakthrough Listen and is the lead author on an upcoming paper detailing that work, which will be published in early 2021. Soon, the team began calling the signal by a more formal name: BLC1, for "Breakthrough Listen Candidate 1."

    "I think it's on par with the Wow! signal," she says. More likely than not, however, this is simply some previously unknown source of Earth-based interference. In a few months we'll likely know for certain one way or another. But for the time being, it's never aliens — right? "I hate that phrase, because if you say that, then why even look?" Wright says. "What we mean by that is that it's never been aliens before." [more]

Wearing a face mask can reduce an individual's risk of infection by 70% [not according to the latest study]. With emergency use authorization of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines [which means they were RUSHED and that the public are the guinea pigs], there is an opportunity to further decrease the risk of illness due to COVID-19 [but we're not taking that route].

    However, vaccines may give people a false sense of security [that they even WORK, let alone the side-effects] that masks are no longer needed [they never WERE]. Unfortunately, that is not the case [because Bill Gates is paying us big money to tell you this crap].

    Vaccination teaches the body how to successfully fight a virus without actually getting sick. [LIE; the body does it BY ITSELF]

    Vaccination does not provide instant immunity. [in fact, if it provides any "immunity" at all - it would be DUE TO the lucky event that your body developed the same anti-bodies to it (the vaccine) that the actual disease is made of - WHICH IS NOT THE CASE, because, outside of the labs they were engineered in, the virus has never been isolated (it's a bio-weapon)]

    Vaccination trials did not track whether participants wore masks.
    [this is just ONE of the slipshod ways these vaccines were rolled out on an unsuspecting public]

    The real world does not mimic a controlled clinical trial [pfft - we just saw how "controlled" it was; so why bother getting the vaccine? You're taking a REAL RISK.]

    The duration of vaccine immunity is unknown [RIGHT, it won't be for very long, meaning you can get Covid again, so WHY BOTHER, since that's the case if you DON'T take the shot]

    It is unclear whether vaccines prevent transmission of COVID-19. [Are people really that stupid? Why does Big Pharma have blanket immunity from damage done by their products if they're so safe?]

    [jeez, it's just like with nuclear radiation and fracking, only this time IT'S PERSONAL]

    A Black Doctor Dies of Coronavirus Complications Just Weeks After Complaining About Hospital's Racist Treatment

    The New York Times reports that Dr. Susan Moore, a Black doctor, was refused adequate care and gaslighted about her pain from her white male doctor while admitted at the Indiana University North Hospital. In a now viral video posted to Facebook, Moore shared her experience, documenting her positive coronavirus diagnosis on November 29, untimely discharge, and her eventual return back to the hospital. She noted that she had to beg her physician to treat her with the antiviral drug remdesivir as well as a CT scan of her neck and chest due to all the pain she was feeling. The doctor however, initially declined to do both and instead questioned Moore’s symptoms and suggested she should be discharged instead. The doctor would eventually oblige but only after medical tests revealed Moore did indeed have new pulmonary infiltrates in her lungs that warranted necessary and immediate attention. [more]
