Event Update For 2021-08-20

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.

    Australian PM vows to keep lockdowns until 70% of population is vaccinated as more protesters hit streets despite police crackdown

    A day after hundreds of protesters were arrested for breaching Covid restrictions, PM Scott Morrison has reiterated that Australia will keep battling the virus with lockdowns until the majority of citizens are fully vaccinated.

    “You can't live with lockdowns forever and at some point, you need to make that gear change and that is done at 70%,” Morrison stated in an interview with ABC on Sunday. [he's lying]

    Less than 30% of Australians over the age of 16 are currently fully vaccinated, and just over 51% have received their first dose, with figures fluctuating from state to state. [more; maybe the powers that be will wake up to their own insanity, but it's more likely that the violence will end up destroying the government; the cops and police will eventually side with the protestors since they live among them.

  3. ‘Liberté’: Thousands take to the streets in Paris to once again decry Covid-19 health pass restrictions (VIDEO)

    Thousands of people have marched in the center of the French capital for the sixth consecutive weekend to denounce the so-called coronavirus health pass that they see as an infringement of the rights of unvaccinated citizens.

    The rallies began in mid-July after Emmanuel Macron’s government introduced a system that made presenting a vaccination certificate or negative Covid-19 test obligatory for those willing to visit a restaurant, theater, cinema and shopping mall or travel on a long-distance train.

    The authorities insist that the QR codes are needed to encourage people to get the jabs and avoid the fourth lockdown in the country, which saw some 6.6 million getting infected and over 113,000 dying due to the coronavirus.[these are MADE-UP numbers]

    More than 55% of the French population have been already fully vaccinated against Covid-19. But those who haven’t got the shot yet or are not planning to at all, claim that the health pass diminishes their rights and turns them into second-class citizens.

    Around 14,700 opponents of the measure again protested in Paris on Saturday. The figure came from the police, but the organizers have accused law enforcement of deliberately downplaying the attendance at previous events. [see? the narrative controlled by the msm is fiction to keep their agenda going, but people are catching on and the msm has now lost all credibility.]

    The protest, which united groups with right- and left-wing views, went off without any serious incidents. [more]

    At least 7 civilians killed in crowd surges amid Kabul airport evacuation chaos – UK military

    Britain’s Ministry of Defence has released a statement confirming at least seven Afghan civilians died among the crowds near Kabul airport, where panicking people desperate to flee the country have been gathering this week.

    Thousands have been amassing around the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan, where several countries have attempted to organize evacuations after Taliban forces seized control of the country. The process has turned into chaos, with people being killed in stampedes. “Conditions on the ground remain extremely challenging,” the British military said in a statement on Sunday, acknowledging at least seven deaths in the crowds.

    ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ to evacuate Afghan allies by end of August: EU foreign policy chief says Americans create problems

    The EU’s top diplomat has declared it “impossible” for Europe to evacuate all of its Afghan allies from Kabul by the end of August. Josep Borrell blamed American troops at the city’s airport for preventing evacuees from leaving.

    Nearly a week after the fall of Kabul to Taliban forces, the US and other Western countries are still evacuating their citizens from Hamid Karzai International Airport, which remains the only lifeline between Kabul and the West. After thousands of desperate Afghans stormed the runway and attempted to get aboard American transport planes by any means necessary – some dying in the process – the airport is now ringed by US troops, with Taliban fighters outside also beefing up security.

    That security has hampered EU efforts to evacuate European citizens, Josep Borrell, the EU’s high representative for foreign affairs, told AFP on Saturday.

    “The problem is access to the airport,” Borrell explained. “The Americans' control and security measures are very strong. We complained. We asked them to show more flexibility. We are unable to get our employees through.” [more]

  4. Why the wheels are coming off the American imperial project [by Charles Hugh Smith]

    By the American Project I mean 1) global hegemony in both hard and soft power and 2) American Exceptionalism, the belief that America is not just uniquely strong but uniquely right in terms of holding the high moral ground.

    Managing narratives has replaced actually solving pressing problems. It's now impossible in America to actually address pressing problems without stepping on the toes of one politically powerful and politically sacrosanct cartel or another, and so problems fester and multiply to the point they cannot be solved within the status quo, regardless of how many trillions are conjured and squandered.

    To mask the coming collapse, narratives must be tightly controlled. Since collapse can't be forestalled without making powerful enemies, the only politically expedient option left is to eliminate any dissent that questions the officially sanctioned happy-stories.

    When a society and a state give up the search for solutions because real solutions will negatively impact politically powerful cartels, collapse is only one step away. It's all fun and games in the unwinnable wars and simulacra reforms stage, but managing narratives isn't the same as managing the real world, and the real world eventually crushes the happy-story narratives and those who actually believed them.

    California mystery: Autopsy fails to reveal cause of death for family and dog found dead on hiking trial

    Autopsies completed Thursday on a Northern California couple and their 1-year-old daughter who were found dead this week on a hiking trail in a national forest failed to reveal how they may have died, prompting investigators to keep digging into the mysterious deaths.

    "Investigators have considered whether toxic gasses, toxic algae and carbon monoxide from abandoned mines near in area may have contributed to the deaths," Mariposa County Sheriff's spokeswoman Kristie Mitchell told Fox News.

    "We're not focusing on one specific cause at this point," she said. "There's just still so many that we can't rule out. We've looked at lighting strikes in the area. We've looked at storms… the weather, animals. We're looking at the entire area as a whole." [more]

    Taliban enjoys deep belly laugh over US military's diversity training materials

    According to sources in Afghanistan, the Taliban was having a "deep belly laugh" over the diversity training materials left behind by the U.S. military previously stationed there. Taliban fighters captured books like Antiracist Baby, White Fragility, and The GayBCs and collectively cracked up over the ridiculousness of the gender ideology present in the works.

    As the American military evacuated quickly with no apparent plan or direction, many top-secret materials were left behind, from battle plans and tactics to books like How to Be an Antiracist and Heather Has Two Mommies. According to sources, after a busy 24 hours conquering all of Afghanistan, the material provided a "much-needed break" and some "well-deserved laughter."

    "Oh man, this is great stuff, Allah be praised," said one Taliban leader, tears in his eyes, as he read through Pink is for Boys and Jacob's New Dress. "These American fighters thought they stood a chance against us? Pathetic!"

    "Look at this book -- the Americans think it is praiseworthy for a boy to dress up like a girl! No wonder they couldn't win in a war against us!"

    At publishing time, the Taliban were kicking themselves after realizing they could have won the war much earlier if they had just called American soldiers by the wrong pronouns.

    TikTok doctor explains why sneakers filled with human feet keep washing up on beaches in the Pacific Northwest

    In a video now watched over 650,000 times, Raj explained that the foot discoveries are down to the human anatomy and, in part, to footwear designs.

    "When a human corpse falls to the ocean floor, it's quickly set upon by scavengers," Raj said in the video. "These scavengers are lazy feeders and prefer to tackle the softer parts of the body than the tough, grisly bits."

    Raj explained how some of the softest parts of the human body are the tissues and ligaments around the ankles. "When scavengers chow down on this, the foot will detach pretty quickly from the rest of the body," the doctor continued. [more]

  6. I don't think escaping the cities will work out too great. How many cities have burned up? None. A fair number of towns have been incinerated though, and untold numbers of homes that are off on their own. Cities have the greatest amount of firefighters and firefighting equipment per square mile. Every available resource is used to protect them. Anywhere else, you'd better have your own firefighting force and equipment or it's just a matter of time until your home's destroyed by fire. Eventually the cities will burn too, but they'll be mankind's last stand.
