Event Update For 2021-01-11


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.

2021-01-11 - Three deer and a beaver found dead in Thetis Lake (Canada):

Quote: "'I was out paddling the lake, which I do regularly, and I saw a dead deer, which I thought was unusual because it was in the water,' Frayne says. Frayne notified the CRD about the carcass. But a few days later, he spotted two more dead deer in the water — both smaller than the first and one looked like a fawn. 'If they die in the bush they’ll just go back to nature, I understand that, but why would three deer be in the water dead, which really seemed unusual,' Frayne says. The mystery deepened on Sunday when he found a partially-submerged dead beaver."

Quote: "All of the animals were found close to shore. The deer were in the lower lake towards the dog beach and the beaver was in the upper lake. Frayne took photos to document what he found and says they didn’t have any visible wounds."

  1. Hey Jonny, everyone. Looks like Rockford, IL had a double JJFH event on this day with an SUV going up in flames and a deadly apartment fire a mere 8 min. away (3.5 miles) by car. i'm sure it's "just a coincidence . .." We see trees suddenly bursting into flame in the early morning and spreading the fire to a home - that's a first (at least for me). Coupla residential explosions and 2 buses burning up along with the double death in Georgia and the usual list of people dropping dead all over the place made this a busy JJFH day.

    [let's start with some wealth disparity]
    “655 people have $4 trillion in wealth. 200 million can’t cover a $1000 expense.”

    The COVID pandemic has caused the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us to grow larger than it ever has been before. Thanks to the hyperinflationary policies of the Federal Reserve and our politicians in Washington, stock prices have soared to unprecedented heights in recent months. This pushed the wealth of the uber-rich to dizzying heights, but for the rest of the country 2020 was an unmitigated nightmare. As I have discussed previously, one survey found that 2020 was a “personal financial disaster” for 55 percent of all Americans. More than 110,000 restaurants shut down permanently last year, Americans filed more than 70 million claims for unemployment benefits, and tens of millions are potentially facing eviction in 2021. But even though we are mired in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, those at the very top of the economic pyramid are laughing all the way to the bank. [more]

    The mysterious year of 1957 which recorded the largest number of major quakes and sunspots in one year and started our planets incredible warming and increase in natural disasters draws an incredible resemblance to 2011 which broke the 1957 major quake record by just 3

    On our planet something else was happening [in the late 1950s], something which coincided perfectly with the massive increase in major quakes and nuclear bomb testing and what happened on our sun: slowly but surely our planet began warming. Other strange anomalies also began happening around the same time such as an increase in natural disasters, and volcano activity began to increase just as the major quakes.

    “Amerika” On The Brink After Trump Invokes “GIANT VOICE” Insurrection Act Threat

    A beyond stunning new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today discussing issues relating to the “Corporate Declaration Of War” declared against President Donald Trump designed to cut off all of his ability to communicate with the American people, says important to notice was this de facto coup being first initiated by the leftist social media giant Twitter—a permanent ban enacted to keep President Trump from being able to communicate with his over 88-million followers, which equates to nearly half of Twitter’s total number of average daily users—then saw this unprecedented action being joined by what the Wall Street Journal. in their just published article “The Progressive Purge Begins”, is describing as a total leftist mass censorship campaign of every outlet President Trump could use to keep information flowing to the American people—all of which started when Twitter said that it wasn’t President Trump’s on-platform conduct that was the problem causing his permanent banning, rather it was “how his tweets are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter”.

    Enbridge said Tuesday it would defy Michigan's demand to shut down an oil pipeline that runs through a channel linking two of the Great Lakes, contending that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's decision was based on bad information and political posturing.

    “Enbridge cannot unilaterally decide when laws and binding agreements apply and when they do not,” Eichinger said. "We stand behind our efforts to protect the Great Lakes, and we stand behind the substance of the November 2020 revocation and termination of the Easement.” [more]

  3. Category 5 atmospheric river brings flooding rain and strong winds to Oregon and Washington, U.S.

    An exceptional atmospheric river rated Category 5 (AR 5) is soaking the Pacific Northwest, bringing flooding rain and strong winds in parts of coastal Oregon and Washington, where up to 8 600 customers were left without power on Tuesday, January 12, 2021. Threats of flooding, mudslides, and avalanches continue into Wednesday morning, January 13, before the moisture flow heads offshore and dissipates.

    In Oregon, Portland General Electric reported more than 5 000 customers lost electricity on Tuesday night, while 3 600 were without power in Multnomah County during the severe weather's onslaught. The atmospheric river was classified as Category 5 (on a scale of 1 - 5) by the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes.

    "Rain gauges have reported 6-hour rainfall totals between 38 and 51 mm (1.5 and 2 inches) across the higher terrain," wrote the National Weather Service (NWS) in Portland. [more]

    Stopping a fire with a blanket

    You may have seen videos floating around recently of a fire resistant blanket being used to control a vehicle fire. It looks pretty simple — two people grab the corners of the blanket and pull it over the burning vehicle. Deprived of oxygen, the fire appears to be extinguished after just a few seconds. It makes sense, of course. No oxygen, no fire. But I assume if the blanket were quickly removed, there could be enough residual heat to reignite the fire as soon as oxygen was reintroduced.

    The video below demonstrates how it works, using a product sold by Bridgehill, a company headquartered in Larvik, Norway. [Ja, sure!]

    Prices for the blanket, which they claim can be reused up to 50 times, start at $2,422 at Darley.

    FireBreak also sells the Emberella fire blanket, which is a solid piece of fabric intended to cover a vehicle, hedges, or small structures. Their video shows it being tested. [more; see videos]

    How To Respond to the Great Deplatforming of 2021

    President Donald Trump's response to last week's attack on the U.S. Capitol led Twitter to permanently ban him from its platform, and Facebook and YouTube closed his accounts on the grounds that he had used their platforms to incite violence.

    Then Apple and Google banned Twitter competitor Parler from its app stores, on the grounds that the perpetrators of last week's Capitol riot used it to coordinate the attack and because the service lacked adequate content moderation. Next, Amazon, which owns about a third of the global cloud storage market, evicted Parler from its cloud hosting service, causing the site to go down entirely.

    These decisions drew a ferocious reaction, both for and against, from people of all political stripes.

    "For better or worse," as Edward Snowden said after Trump was kicked off Twitter, "this will be remembered as a turning point in the battle for control over digital speech."

    "It is stunning to watch now as every War on Terror rhetorical tactic to justify civil liberties erosions is now being invoked in the name of combatting Trumpism," wrote journalist Glenn Greenwald.

    The takeaway from the great deplatforming of 2021 is that we need an open digital commons more than ever, a place where individuals maintain ownership of their own identities and where speech is highly resistant to political pressure.

    Decentralized networks are vital to protecting open discourse not only from Twitter, Facebook, and Google, but from Sen. Ted Cruz (R–Texas), Sen. Josh Hawley (R–Mo.), President-elect Joe Biden, and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, who have the real power to stomp on the free speech rights of American citizens. [more]

    Mainstream media goes full Orwell telling readers they’re using the word ‘Orwellian’ wrong

    Complaining about authoritarian government intrusion into one’s life or surreptitious rewriting of history no longer qualify as “Orwellian,” according to an article that ironically embodies the concept in trying to redefine it.
    News outlet USA Today has managed to personify the term ‘Orwellian’ in its profoundly condescending writeup scolding readers for “using the term ‘Orwellian’ wrong.” Published on Monday, the piece goes to great lengths to shame those insecure about their vocabulary by suggesting the term “Orwellian” can only be used correctly by liberals.

    The article notes that Orwell fought fascism in Spain, strongly implying today’s conservatives are the ideological descendants of Franco’s fascists – a conclusion it doesn’t try to support with facts, but merely guilt by association. Which dovetails perfectly with the writer’s efforts to narrow the definition of “Orwellian” by the use of “the manipulation of language” to conceal reality. [more]

    As for the BLM buses in that story you linked, notice that they chopped off the bottom of that image so it doesn't show the date. No reason to do that unless they just wanted to hide the date. That was probably that December BLM bus thing that was posted about before, not in Washington DC. Chop off the date and you can't tell though. The account it was posted from doesn't even exist. The new account that replaced it was created in December.

    He did get charged for some stuff in Utah - he saw someone shoot someone and didn't inform the police who did the shooting, and he kicked some cars. He is a left-wing activist, that's for sure. He didn't seem to cause any trouble in Washington DC though. The FBI did seize all of his video footage to help identify some of the violent criminals. All of the people identified via his footage so far have been right-wing extremists.

    His video footage may be the single best source of video for what happened, which is why the FBI wanted it. Some people have suggested he should get a Pulitzer for doing what he did and getting that video footage. I wouldn't have been that brave, especially if I was black.

  10. Here's his Twitter page (the real one, not the fake/old one used in that gatewaypundit story), for more information:


  11. Oh, I see, WTF, my daily update didn't go through! I am investigating this matter now!

  12. Aha, something must have glitched - the post was there, but it hadn't been published even though I had clicked publish. Well, it's published now. I would have noticed that before TOO long, but I much appreciate that you said something!

  13. Attaway. Whew, thought that was it!

    Hey Fran! Glad to see you're still here! Thanks for the news.
    Jonny's cogent analysis is always appreciated.
