Event Update For 2021-01-20

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.

Quote: "China has nearly 250 gigawatts (GW) of coal-fired power now under development, more than the entire coal power capacity of the United States, a new study said on Thursday, casting doubt on the country’s commitments to cutting fossil fuel use."

Quote: "Six years after Russia’s Poseidon doomsday torpedo first appeared in a television camera’s fleeting shot of a briefing book for Russian President Vladimir Putin, it’s still not totally clear why the Kremlin thinks the bizarre radiological weapon is a good investment. But it is clear Moscow is serious about deploying Poseidon, a 79-foot-long, nuclear-powered underwater drone armed with a huge dirty-bomb warhead that could irradiate U.S. coastal cities and naval bases in the late stages of a civilization-ending nuclear war. Not only is the Kremlin building a new base for storing as many as 30 Poseidons, it’s also outfitting at least four nuclear-powered submarines specifically for carrying the huge doomsday torpedoes."

    The peril of high atmospheric methane levels [by Andrew Glikson]

    It is hard to think of a more Orwellian expression than that describing the increase in toxic atmospheric methane gas as “gas-led recovery.”

    Several of the large mass extinctions of species in the geological past are attributed to an increase in atmospheric methane (CH₄), raising the temperature of the atmosphere and depriving the oceans from oxygen. Nowadays a serious danger to the atmosphere and for the life support systems ensues from the accelerated release of methane from melting Arctic permafrost, leaks from ocean sediments and from bogs, triggered by global warming. As if this was not dangerous enough, now methane is extracted as coal-seam-gas (CSG) by fracking (hydraulic fracturing) of coal and oil shale in the US, Canada, Australia and elsewhere. [he forgot to mention H2S]

    High levels of methane reduce the amount of oxygen breathed from the air, with health consequences. The toxicity of methane is corroborated in a 2018 study in Pennsylvania showing children born within a mile or two of a gas well were likely to be smaller and less healthy. New York State, Maryland, and Vermont have banned fracking, as have France and Germany. [more]

  2. YOUTUBE CAUGHT RED-HANDED Removing Dislikes from Biden White House Page — Anything to Fool the Proletariat

    What a surprise!

    The far-left tech giants jumped in to save the Biden regime on their very first day in office.

    Jen Psaki held a press briefing with the leftist horde in the White House Briefing Room on Wednesday after the Biden Hunger Games Inaugural.

    After being sworn in Joe Biden signed several executive orders to open borders, shut down US energy production and punish American companies.

    During the White House presser, the American public was quick to downvote Psaki’s nonsense. At 3 PM the video had 10,000 down votes.

    But by 7 PM YouTube came to the rescue and erased the downvotes by several thousand.

    The number at 7:31 PM had remarkably dropped to 3.1 thousand votes.

    This is more evidence of how the Tech Giants do anything they can to assist their ideological allies while they censor and delete conservative content and voices. [more; no more free speech]

    The 2020 Worldwide Corona Crisis: Destroying Civil Society, Engineered Economic Depression, Global Coup d’État and the “Great Reset”

    This E-book consists of a Preface and Nine Chapters.

    We are dealing with an exceedingly complex process.

    In the course of the last twelve months starting in early January 2020, I have analyzed almost on a daily basis the timeline and evolution of the Covid crisis. From the very outset in January 2020, people were led to believe and accept the existence of a rapidly progressing and dangerous epidemic.

    I suggest you first read the Highlights (below), the Preface and Introduction before proceeding with chapters II through IX.

    Each of the nine chapters provide factual information as well as analysis on the following topics: What Is Covid-19, what is SARS-CoV-2, how Is it identified, how is it estimated? The timeline and historical evolution of the Corona Crisis, the devastating economic and financial impacts, the enrichment of a social minority of billionaires, how the lockdown policies trigger unemployment and mass poverty Worldwide.

    The E-book also includes analysis of curative and preventive drugs as well as a review of Big Pharma’s Covid-19 vaccine initiative.[more]

  3. We Are Suffering Through The Most Painful Economic Crisis Since The Great Depression Of The 1930s

    I warned that an economic collapse was coming, and an economic collapse is exactly what we got. 2020 was a “personal financial disaster” for 55 percent of all Americans, approximately 12 million U.S. renters are “at least $5,850 behind in rent and utilities payments”, the Aspen Institute is projecting that up to 40 million people could be facing eviction when the rent and mortgage moratoriums finally end, and more than 70 million new claims for unemployment benefits have been filed since the COVID pandemic began.

    Nobody can point to a time since the Great Depression of the 1930s when the U.S. economy was in worse shape than it is right now.

    Unfortunately, there are no indications that this nightmare is going to end. Last week, another 900,000 Americans filed new claims for unemployment benefits…

    At this point, the number of new claims for unemployment benefits has been above 695,000 for 44 weeks in a row. [more]

    The Agony Of Deceit

    We have witnessed a constant flood of lies from the left, and unfortunately we have also witnessed a constant flood of lies from the right. As children we were told that “words can never hurt us”, but the truth is that millions upon millions of people have been hurt by all of these lies. If we ever hope to heal our society, we have got to make a commitment to return to the truth, and that is not going to be easy to do.

    Like so many other politicians, he is a great con man, but as time goes on more and more people will catch on to his act.

    At this point, the radical left absolutely despises him and they have already started to riot. Sadly, the civil unrest in this country is only going to get worse as the radical left gets angrier and angrier.

    For now, the corporate media is fully behind Biden and they can’t stop saying nice things about him.

    But after decades of putting out fake news and after shedding any pretense of objectivity over the past four years, the faith that Americans have in the corporate media is at an all-time low.

    56% of Americans agree with the statement that “Journalists and reporters are purposely trying to mislead people by saying things they know are false or gross exaggerations.”
    58% think that “most news organizations are more concerned with supporting an ideology or political position than with informing the public.”
    When Edelman re-polled Americans after the election, the figures had deteriorated even further, with 57% of Democrats trusting the media and only 18% of Republicans.

    Over time, many Americans have caught on to the fact that the news is essentially the same no matter which channel you are watching.

    Portland police arrest 15 alleged Antifa rioters after Democrat HQ attacked

    Police in Portland, Oregon have arrested fifteen suspects after a mob of around 200 alleged Antifa members smashed up the Democrat headquarters and federal immigration offices in the city on Wedensday, while three people were arrested after a crowd in Seattle attacked buildings and burnt a US flag.

    The two Pacific Northwest cities have been hotspots for protests and violence since the Black Lives Matter demonstrations began last year in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.

    There were also protests in Denver, Colorado; Columbus, Ohio and Sacramento in California.

    Police did not comment on the political nature of the crowd, but the violence came on a day when several far-left demonstrations were planned to put pressure on the new Biden administration to swiftly introduce immigration, racial justice and policing reforms. [more]

    China Imports Oil Doctored to Skirt U.S. Sanctions on Venezuela

    Millions of barrels of Venezuelan heavy crude, embargoed by the U.S., have been surreptitiously going to China.

    The cat-and-mouse games that avoid detection and sanctions include ship-to-ship transfers, shell companies and silenced satellite signals. But there’s another aspect to the dodge. It involves “doping” the oil with chemical additives and changing its name in the paperwork so it can be sold as a wholly different crude without a trace of its Venezuelan roots. [more]

    "We've closed John Wilson Ocean Drive to vehicles for the next month to allow some special residents to use the road safely," the city council wrote on Facebook. "A New Zealand sea lion and her pup have taken up residence at the golf course next door and are regularly crossing the road to get to the beach." [next month, go ahead and run them over if they're in the way of your commute]

    'We feel incredibly betrayed': Thousands of Guardsmen forced to vacate Capitol

    One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said. Temperatures in Washington were in the low 40s by nightfall.

    “Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” the Guardsman said. [more; abuse of troops]

    Biden’s executive order that prioritises transgender people is a DISASTER for ordinary women and girls across America

    Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have done more damage to women’s rights in one day than Donald Trump managed in four years with their misguided Executive Order on Gender Identity Discrimination.

    Unlike sex, gender identity is a made-up concept. It’s the bizarre notion that regardless of the biological reality of our bodies, we all have a feeling, deep down inside, about whether we are really male or female. This feeling, the gender identity champions tell us, overrides our hormones, chromosomes, and genitalia. How we feel about our gender is more important than whether or not we have a beard, breasts, penis, or ovaries, when it comes to defining us as men or women. Anyone can now be a man or a woman, and the onus is on the world to accept us for who we say we are. [more]

    Cancelling Josh Hawley’s book is another blow against free speech by corporate America and only confirms conservative fears

    High-profile Republican Senator Josh Hawley, tipped by some as a future presidential candidate, had to find a new publisher for his book as it became collateral damage in the attack on freedom of speech and ideas.

    Standing staunchly behind Free Hong Kong activists and criticising big tech for being too powerful could well be considered liberal views by some. They also happen to be the viewpoints of politician Josh Hawley. He represents the state of Missouri and was the youngest senator in the US at 41. Incoming Georgia senator Jon Ossoff has pipped him in the next congress, however, being just a tender 33 years of age.

    A loyal Republican, he defended Donald Trump to the death and many Democrats felt he contributed to the ‘incitement’ of the chaos at the Capitol. He challenged the election results, refusing to back down, even in the face of condemnation saying: "I will never apologize for giving voice to the millions of Missourians and Americans who have concerns about the integrity of our elections. That’s my job, and I will keep doing it.” [more; #metoo!]
