Event Update For 2021-08-17

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.

  1. Threatening Thursday Jonny, everyone.

    Yesterday i thought the coincidence of 2 garbage truck fires AND 2 JJFH events in Hull, UK was rare (which it is over the time i've been logging them). Well now we have the SAME DOUBLE events coinciding for the SECOND DAY IN A ROW!! i don't know what it means, but it's off the charts for unusual occurrences!

    Today's post is also tragic for all the dead bodies in the same spot - like the 3 people and their dog found at a campsite and woman and 6 children found dead at home, not to mention the earthquake death toll.

  2. Study: Fully vaccinated people with 'breakthrough' COVID Delta infections carry as much virus as the unvaccinated

    A study by University of Oxford scientists has found that people who contract the Delta variant of COVID-19 after being fully vaccinated carry a similar amount of the coronavirus as those who catch the disease and have not been inoculated. The researchers stressed that vaccination still offers good protection against catching the disease in the first place, and protects against getting seriously ill with it.

    The survey of real-world U.K. data indicates, however, that vaccinated people with "breakthrough" infections could still pose a significant infection risk to those who have not been vaccinated.

    "With Delta, infections occurring following two vaccinations had similar peak viral burden to those in unvaccinated individuals," the study, which has not yet been peer reviewed, concludes. Viral "burden" or viral load refers to how much coronavirus-infected people carry and thus "shed," or release into the environment around them, where it can potentially infect others.

    A group of restaurants and businesses have filed suit against Mayor Bill de Blasio in opposition to a mandate requiring proof of vaccination at city eateries, gyms, movie theaters and other establishments, new court papers show.

    The businesses argue that the mandate violates their constitutional rights and unfairly targets certain establishments but not others like churches, grocery stores, schools, offices and medical facilities, the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Staten Island Supreme Court alleges.

    The suit says that the mandate is “arbitrary and capricious” for a slew of reasons including that the highly contagious COVID-19 Delta variant can spread among both vaccinated and unvaccinated people, the court documents claim.

  5. Businesses Are Refusing to Enforce France’s Vaccine Passport

    “Over a four day stay I was required to show a valid pass exactly zero times; that includes at the airports in both directions. Compliance is absolutely min viable and often lower.”

    “At small businesses enforcement was non-existent: sometimes the pass requirement was ignored entirely, other times we were asked “do you have a pass” and our answer wasn’t checked. One restaurant had come up with a clever way to detect police stings without requiring customers to actually present a pass. As expected, enforcement was stricter by larger firms, however even there we saw the following:

    – Test certificates being checked once and then swapped for a token that doesn’t expire.
    – Expired tests being accepted.
    – People accepting paper test certificates without scanning them.
    – Scanning tests and then not looking at the screen to see the results.
    – Accepting QR codes that failed to scan.”

    Hearn also reveals how mask mandates in theme parks and other venues are also not being followed, despite signs everywhere ordering people to cover their faces, while social distancing is also a “forgotten memory.” [more]

    "Get Us!" Surreal Footage Shows Trapped Americans Pleading To Be Let Inside Kabul Airport

    During a Wednesday afternoon press conference Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin made a stunning admission on the situation in Kabul which immediately came under fire from the press pool: “We don’t have the capability to go out and collect large numbers of people.”

    While he was responding to the avalanche of criticism aimed at the White House and Pentagon for essentially abandoning to the Taliban the tens of thousands of local Afghan translators and staffers who spent years helping US and NATO forces, the further alarming reality remains that thousands of Americans are still trapped in and around Kabul international airport. A CBS News foreign correspondent posted the below video showing the still chaotic situation as Americans are trying to access the airport under extremely dangerous circumstances, through barbed wire and blockaded military checkpoints. “Get us!” one woman is heard screaming and pleading with the American troops standing on the other side of the blockaded North Gate entrance to the airport.

    AMERICANS STRANDED: Pressure is building on the Biden administration to speed up the evacuation from Afghanistan. About 1,500 people have been flown out since Saturday, but 11,000 Americans are still inside the country which is now under Taliban control. [more; way to go Joe]

    The Taliban have seized US Military biometrics devices – and that’s really bad for Afghan ‘collaborators’

    This may explain some of the chaos at airports in Kabul and across Afghanistan… The Taliban have HAVE seized U.S. military biometric collection devices that could aid in the identification of Afghans who assisted coalition forces.

    The devices, known as HIIDE (Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment) were seized last week during the Taliban’s offensive.

    And now officials fear that sensitive data they contain could be used by the Taliban. [more]
