Event Update For 2021-08-08

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.

    NewsReal: Echoes of Nazism - Governments' Vaccine Passports Spark Mass Disobedience [108.25 min. video]

    Despite health authorities acknowledging that Covid vaccines prevent neither infection nor transmission, governments - again in 'lockstep' - last week announced that teenagers are next in line for them.

    Meanwhile major protests against the 'vaccine green pass' continue growing, and some local governments like Texas and Florida have vowed never to pass such laws. [more]

    Rand Paul implores Americans to 'choose freedom' over potential lockdowns: 'Time for us to resist'

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) urged Americans to resist potential forthcoming lockdown measures, saying that the country could not go back to the state that it was in last year. In a video that he posted to his Twitter account on Sunday that closely resembled an op-ed he wrote for Fox News last week, Paul said:

    "It's time for us to resist. They can't arrest all of us. They can't keep all of your kids home from school. They can't keep every government building closed - although I've got a long list of ones they might keep closed or might ought to keep closed. We don't have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again."

    "Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs. We have either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, we will not be forced into random screenings and testings so you can continue your drunk-with-power rein over the Capitol."

    Paul later took shots at Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical advisor to the president, who Paul referred to the Department of Justice for criminal investigation last month following a heated Senate hearing where he accused Fauci of lying to Congress.

    "I'm not the only one who is fed up. I can't go anywhere these days without people coming up and thanking me for standing up for them. Whether I'm at work, or at events in Kentucky, at airports, in restaurants, or in stores, people thank me for taking a stand. They thank me for standing up for actual science. For standing up for freedom. For standing against mandates, lockdowns, and bureaucratic power grabs.

    "I think the tide is turning as more and more people are willing to stand up. I see stories from across the country of parents standing up to the unions and school boards. I see brave moms standing up and saying, 'My kids need to go back to school in-person.' I see members of Congress refusing to comply with Petty Tyrant Pelosi. We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads. Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children? Or will we stand together and say, absolutely not? Not this time. I choose freedom." [more]

  2. 2021 Is 1984 – Our Liberties And Freedoms Are Being Ripped Away From Us And America Is Almost Gone

    We are the generation that is witnessing the end of America.

    For whatever period of time the political entity known as “the United States” is allowed to continue, it won’t be “America” anymore.

    Sure, the U.S. Constitution will still be on public display somewhere, and the politicians will still pay lip service to it. But for all practical purposes, the dream of what “America” was supposed to be will be dead.

    Rand Paul has chosen to make a bold stand.

    Where in the world is everyone else?

    I am so sick and tired of these “do nothing” politicians. They are standing aside as our Republic is literally being destroyed.

    every single day, things are getting even worse.

    If you love liberty, now is the time to stand up and say something. Time is rapidly running out, and authoritarianism is on the march. [more]

    Nowhere to run nowhere to hide: From a Covid Pandemic to vaccine hysteria, climate change, wildfires, heatwaves, droughts, floods cold-snaps, animal die-offs and a very vulnerable magnetic field: Earth appears to on the brink

    Groups of families, friends and colleagues are becoming more and more divided with no choice but to pick sides regarding their vaccine status. There is so much mistrust, doubt, skepticism and suspicion of governments, scientists, (big Pharma) and the media.

    While big Pharma have once again hit the jackpot and raked in billions of dollars from covid jabs, "We The People" are left bewildered, confused and confounded as to what is the correct action to take because we have been lied to so often before, we don't know what or who to believe anymore.

    Is the vaccination an experimental medicine that has not yet been approved? Or is it perfectly safe? We don't know very much about them either, especially the long time side effects, we just don't know.

    Doe the vaccines contain the poisonous graphene oxide which can create an electric network in our bodies, of course, we don't want to believe this but we just don't trust authority anymore because our leaders tell us constant lies and are often corrupt? The vaccines does contain four nanoparticle lipids. The first is cholesterol which travels easily through the blood. The second is a fossil lipid that adheres to the cell allowing lipid, the third, a nasty gunk, to ionise a charge which penetrates the cell, is this the stuff causing sticky blood and blood clots? This allows lipid number four, and the worst, graphene oxide, into the cell, which when activated could destroy every cell in the human body.

    Have we just handed a global database into the hands of "The New World Order?" Is a totalitarian state ahead? Mandates are now being introduced, mandates, we were promised would never happen. Unvaccinated people cannot go to a pub, restaurant, nightclub or a football game without an app showing they are vaccinated. Health workers in Europe, the UK and the US must be vaccinated before returning to work and the military must also be vaccinated before returning to work!

    This is where coercion becomes a factor, next, we won't be able to go to work without a "vaccination passport" or do a simple run to the shopping mall... No vaccination passport no life. Then, the 4 monthly top-up vaccines will be introduced, or a mother's vaccination passport app will stop her from shopping because her baby has not been vaccinated. If you don't have the vaccine or the top-up vaccine added to your passport, your life will grind to a halt.

    Illegal, coercive pressure will push people into having no choice but to be repeatedly vaccinated which is actually against the Nuremberg code after Nasi Doctors of the second world war were convicted of conducting experiments on prisoners of war.

    "We The People," have all but lost control of the rest of our lives, our kids' lives, and our kids, kids lives. People in this "New World Order" will not be able to live without the app, the vaccine, or the top-up vaccines. [more]

    [4th piece post-haste]

  4. Mexico is phasing out imports of glyphosate and GMO corn. Supporters say that could reverse years of damage from U.S. trade policy.

    Mexico is now the United States’ single largest agricultural trading partner, largely the result of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a treaty enacted in 1994 that eliminated tariffs on the majority of goods produced and traded between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Although NAFTA was heralded by the U.S. government for reducing barriers to trade, as The Counter previously reported, the pact devastated rural economies in Mexico, flooding the market with cheap, government-subsidized U.S. corn and gutting domestic corn prices by nearly 70 percent. This shift led an estimated 2 million farmworkers to abandon the countryside to seek work in big cities or across the border in the United States.

    The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)—the replacement for NAFTA that entered into force in 2020—further entrenched this challenge. Touted by then-U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue as a “better deal for America’s farmers, consumers, and workers that will set them up for success for decades to come,” USMCA has done little to benefit Mexico’s small and subsistence farmers or stem the flow of migration that dropped during the height of the pandemic but is, again, increasing. New data released on Friday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection showed that June was the highest month for new arrivals at the southern border since President Biden took office. [more]

    One Covid vaccination or screening center vandalized in France per day on average since mid-July – reports

    France’s Ministry of the Interior found that one Covid vaccination or screening center has been vandalized per day on average since mid-July, with around 20 such sites across the country attacked, local media reported on Tuesday.

    The numerous attacks orchestrated on various Covid facilities coincide with mass protests, which have rocked France for weeks, regarding the Covid ‘health pass’ and mandatory vaccination for healthcare workers by mid-September, which were given the backing of the top constitutional court last week. The scheme requires all citizens seeking to enter most public venues in France to display their health pass to show their vaccination or Covid viral status upon entry. [more]

  5. Fire extinguished on commercial vessel at Syrian port after reported explosion, some workers required treatment

    A fire at the Syrian port of Latakia has been extinguished, according to state media, after a reported explosion sent black smoke billowing above the city. Some workers required oxygen and further treatment.

    On Tuesday, a fire broke out on a commercial vessel during maintenance operations in Syria’s Latakia port, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), a state-controlled news agency.

    Several workers experienced shortness of breath and were transferred to a hospital for treatment. The injured were given oxygen and other treatment before being discharged.

    The little known New Madrid ticking pipeline bomb

    Despite the dangers and warnings, the area continues to be flooded, fracked, drilled, HAARPed, and tornadoed, with extreme weather fluctuations only escalating.

    The fault zone is criss-crossed with major gas and oil pipelines delivering these volatile energy sources all over the United States.

    An earthquake in the middle of the country, along the precarious New Madrid fault, could have enormous fiscal and energy consequences. Virtually every natural gas pipeline in the nation is built over that fault. You’ll see the explosion reflected off the moon. [more; i'm sure that's hyperbole]

    Tropical Storm Fred forecast to form soon in the Caribbean Sea. Where is it heading?

    A disturbance in the Caribbean Sea is forecast to turn into Tropical Storm Fred soon, possibly by the time it nears Puerto Rico later on Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

    Most of Florida is in the cone. However, forecasters note that it’s still too soon to say if Florida will be affected because of the long-range forecast’s uncertainty.

    South Florida could see “significant, widespread flooding” this weekend, said chief meteorologist Craig Setzer of Miami Herald news partner CBS4. [more]
