JAIL TIME FOR CLINTON’S? IG REPORT TO BE RELEASED NEXT WEEK

If we are ever going to restore the rule of law in America, then the corrupt elite must be indicted, tried, convicted, and then serve time in jail. If that doesn’t happen, then the United States deserves what happens to it. Further, I am not optimistic that will happen under the current Deep State fascist oligarch system now ruling the USA. It is also a fact, as seen by AG Sessions “deal” with the Pakistani couple, we have a Deep State operative as AG, just like we have multiple Deep State operatives at all levels of the various Federal Agencies.

The Department of Justice Inspector General Horowitz is now getting ready to release his “investigation,” into how the DOJ, the FBI, and all their employees handled the Clinton E-mail investigation on June 14th. Given the dismal record of Sessions, Wray and the entire lot of them, I am not going to have high expectations here. It is clear to me the Deep State plan is to allow limited revelations of just how corrupt our elite truly is, as long as they aren’t held accountable, or ever do the famous “perp walk.” When Trump said during the 60 Minutes Interview with Leslie Stahl back in November of 2016, that the Clinton’s were “good people,” I knew then the game was rigged. Ergo, we will get an IG report that indicates gross felonies by the Clinton’s, and gross negligence by the FBI, and the DOJ in the investigation. After that, the fake news press will go to town, or we will have a major false flag attack, and everybody will walk. They will walk just like all the others have, from Lerner in the IRS, to Paige, and McCabe and all the rest. If that is what happens, then I wish Russia’s Putin, and China’s Li God speed when they defeat our military, invade us, and then start executing our elite in massive numbers. At any rate, the “rumor” is the IG report will be “hot.” If nobody does jail time, it will be just another farce. You may call me the doubting doomer. Until I see the perp walks, the Grand Jury indictments, the trials and the convictions this is nothing to me. Until then, let our enemies crush us for the vile and evil nation we have become. It is said the report will “criticize” former AG Lynch. Seriously, she has engaged in multiple felonies. The fix my be she gets spanked in public, and then takes her ill gotten gains and goes to Belize. Some justice that will be. We shall see what happens, but if all that happens to Lynch is she gets “criticized,” then the whole process was a farce from day one.

VOG, LAZE AND THE BIG ISLAND IN HAWAII 6-3-2018

Further information about the Kilaeua Volcanic Eruption indicate the situation is about to get worse, although not for the reasons certain hysterical, and yes that is the correct word, people are saying. I will repeat the conditions needed to have the Hileau Slump fall into the ocean and create a “Mega-tsunami,” are on par with an asteroid impact. My bottom line is don’t sweat it. On the other hand, there are some clear and present dangers coming to the fore. The first is VOG, or air pollution caused by the  various toxic gas, steam and particulate matter being spewed out, by both the crater eruptions, and the stuff coming from the fissures. This includes the famous “Pele’s Hair.” Well, blog readers, since I personally experienced the Mount Saint Helen’s eruption, way back on May 18th, 1980, me knows of that which I write. The threat level from breathing either VOG, or LAZE, is high, as in it will kill you if you don’t take it seriously.

The situation now, as of around 1300 PST on Sunday, June 3rd of 2018 is both VOG and LAZE are about to become a serious, potentially life threatening danger to people living on the Southern Half of the Big Island. The reason being in the link below.

PAHOA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) – A lava flow that cut off access to several coastal communities in lower Puna on Saturday continues to advance, and is already believed to have destroyed several homes.

MORE

Sunday morning the National Guard confirmed that the Hawaii County Fire Department airlifted three people trapped by lava from the isolated areas of Kapoho and Vacationland. No injuries were reported.

First responders are actively conducting search and rescue missions in isolated areas.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency confirms fissure 8 is feeding a large channelized flow traveling along Highway 132, the Pahoa-Kapoho Road.

Officials say lava has crossed Government Beach Road and Highway 137.

The flow is moving downslope toward the ocean into Kapoho Beach Lots and as of early this morning had reached Kapoho Kai Road to the south and as far east as Iliani Road.

USGS geologists say as of 7:30 a.m. Sunday, lava was about 430 yards from the ocean between Kapoho Beach Road and Kapoho Kai Drive. The flow front is reported to be about half a mile wide. 

On Saturday evening, Senator Kaialii Kahele says while on an overflight he witnessed trapped residents in Kapoho and Vacationland who were directed to go to Isaac Hale Beach Park in Pohoiki — a designated landing zone for evacuation.

The flow also apparently evaporated Green Lake, which was the largest freshwater lake in the islands.

About 9:30 a.m. Saturday, the flow originating from fissure no. 8 in Leilani Estates crossed Highway 137 at Government Beach Road, cutting off access to Kapoho and Vacationland.

That’s what authorities had feared for days — and why they’d urged residents in the communities to evacuate while they still could.

By about 10 a.m., lava had crawled into Kapoho Crater, creating a huge steam plume when it hit Green Lake.

The plume had ceased by 1:30 p.m. and an aerial assessment revealed the lava appeared to have filled the lake and evaporated all the water. Green Lake is believed to be four centuries old, and at least one study put its depth at 200 feet in spots.

“It was burning homes, it was burning farms, and just laying destruction in its path with a direct line for Vacationland and Kapoho Bay,” said state Sen. Kai Kahele, who conducted an overflight of the area on Saturday night. “I would be surprised, if it continues on its current speed, that it hasn’t reached the Kapoho Vacationland shoreline by the time the sun comes up.”

The devastating flow can all be sourced back to fissure no. 8, which has been creating fountains of lava for days and sending lava along Highway 132, the Pahoa-Kapoho Road, with two flow fronts.

Government Beach Road, between Kahakai Boulevard and Cinder Road, is open to Waa Waa and Papaya Farms Road residents only, but they must have official credentials.

Meanwhile, a mandatory evacuation zone remains in place for about half of lava-ravaged Leilani Estates. Officials began enforcing the new rules Friday.

The evacuation order covers the area from Pomaikai Street to Malama Street, where huge fountains of lava, ongoing flows and toxic emissions are making conditions unsafe.

“Leilani (Estates) is just so treacherous with the fissures opening up,” said Talmadge Magno, Hawaii County Civil Defense administrator, at a news conference Saturday. “That’s the reason we chose to shut it down.”

Magno also said that the few people who have decided to stay behind, despite multiple warnings from officials and first responders, are living in less-than-ideal conditions. “Cells are out, landlines are out, there’s no power, municipal water is out,” Magno said. “You’d have to be pretty self-sufficient.”

Amid the ongoing eruptions, which started a month ago Sunday, the Big Island continues to see visitor cancellations.

Ross Birch, with the Island of Hawaii Visitors Bureau, said the biggest impact of the tourism slump is on small businesses. “The immediate lack of (cruise ship) port calls in Hilo and Kona, that hurts the mom and pop operations,” he said. “If you have plans, definitely keep them.”

Geologists have said there’s no telling when the eruptions will end. That uncertainty — and the ongoing destruction — is leaving residents on edge.

Heath Dalton and his family lived in Leilani Estates. They lost everything to lava.

“Their baby blankets are gone, I didn’t grab it,” he said. “If I had known that was the last time I was going to see my house I think we would have done things differently.”

The timing couldn’t be worse. Their daughter turned 5 Saturday — and all her presents burned.

The mandatory evacuation order for parts of Leilani Estates comes amid ongoing vigorous eruptions, which have taken out dozens of homes in recent days. On Friday, authorities put the number of homes claimed by lava at 87.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologists say the lava fountaining from fissure no. 8 is the hottest they’ve ever detected in this eruption and the flow it’s feeding is capable of moving upwards of 600 yards per hour.

Leilani Estates evacuees say they understand the reasons behind the mandatory evacuation, and say they appreciate the county’s work in recent weeks to allow them to get into the subdivision during the day to cart out belongings and pets.

“I do think that it is appropriate,” said Wendy Klepps, whose house is near the geyser of lava shooting out of fissure no. 8.

“Most of us here in Leilani, we’ve left. We know the danger. We’re respecting what we were told to do from the beginning and we’ve vacated what we can as we can. We’re just being responsible.”

Big Island Mayor Harry Kim said the order was necessary to keep people safe.

“I can no longer afford to put residents at risk,” he said, at a community meeting this week. “I can no longer afford to put DOCARE, police, fire, national guard to go banging in the dark of a neighborhood they don’t know to say you must get out now.”

KILAEAU UPDATE 6-2-2018

I have been following the ongoing volcanic eruption on Hawaii’s Big Island the last month or so. My opinion is we are going to see what I call the historical Hawaii eruption. We will see fissures opening, both on land and under the ocean. We will see ongoing lava flow. It is magma underground, and lava once it erupts. It is clear there is still a vast amount of lava, some sources say 98 percent, which could drain from the caldera. It is also a fact we now have a vent that is 120 acres wide, up from 12 acres a month ago. This vent is inside the crater, which is inside the caldera at Kilaeua, and is now blocked, which may lead to further eruptions of toxic gas, atmospheric particulates, ie rocks and dirt, thousands of feet into the air. On the other hand, things may calm down over the next few days. At this point, you roll the dice and you take your chances. We are also seeing increased volcanic and earthquake activity all around the Ring of Fire. The Ring of Fire is a giant circle that starts in New Zealand, Indonesia, Japan, Alaska, and then all the way down the coast to Chile in South America. He starts talking about Hawaii at 13 minutes in.

The link below is a one hour video from Dutch Sinse that covers all of the above.

DON’T ROAST MARSHMELLOWS OVER LAVA AND EUROPE HEADS INTO THE DEBT ABYSS 5-30-2018

In the history of human stupidity I have found this link. It is where the Hawaiian authorities are telling people not to roast marshmallows over 2000 degree Lava flows. Seriously? Darwin awards are going to begin being handed out by the thousands at this rate. The video of the guy on his second floor porch, watching the lava in his back yard, is an act of reckless folly. Darwin awards are coming soon. We are also seeing quakes at the other two volcanoes in the area. The key will be if we start to see swarms of earthquakes start to happen around the other two volcanoes. The vent on Kilauea is getting bigger, as the walls collapse, which may, repeat may, indicate an eruptive event is possible. We shall see, but I have to say the mental behavior of the people taking selfies, and wandering around next to fissures, spewing 2000 degree lava, toxic gas, and large rocks is feckless, ignorant, and brain dead.

USGS tells Hawaii residents not to roast MARSHMALLOWS over lava as it issues warning that ‘hazardous eruption is imminent, underway or suspected’

  • On Monday, a user asked the USGS if it was possible to take the popular fluffy treat and dangle it over the volcanic vents sprouting across the Big Island 
  • ‘@USGSVolcanoes Is it safe to roast marshmallows over volcanic vents?’ the user asked
  • The USGS was quick to respond, telling the user that it would taste way too bad
  • Erm…we’re going to have to say no, that’s not safe. (Please don’t try!),’ the USGS asserted
  • Residents were pressed to evacuate the Leilani Estate area  so that they wouldn’t be caught up in the lava’s movements 

Next, we have further confirmation that the EU, the EURO, and Europe in general are facing an economic disaster of Biblical proportions. The link is below. The video is 23 minutes long.

Europe and World Facing Another Debt Crisis – Gregory Mannarino

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Trader/analyst Gregory Mannarino says the debt crisis of 2008 is going to blow up again. Mannarino explains, “The European debt crisis was never fixed.  They kind of just added more debt onto a debt issue.  They maxed out their credit cards and found a way to borrow a little more.  That’s the main issue that is driving the markets here. They want people to believe it’s political turmoil.  Of course, that might be some of this, but the fact that some of the largest economies on earth (in Europe) are now, once again, facing their moment of truth – it’s a debt crisis. . . . Europe is facing another debt crisis—period.”

Mannarino also points out, “The Fed is not magic. They do not have divine power.  They have to get into the market and make it happen.  They have to buy bonds.  Quantitative easing never stopped, and it is continuing on as we speak.  We also know the world central banks are doing things like buy each other’s debt to try to keep this propped up.  This issue that is unfolding in Europe has the potential to be a tsunami or to start this tsunami of a correction to fair value around the world.  It’s not a crash.  It is a correction because everything has been distorted.  Central banks have been on a buying binge unlike anything ever seen in world history.”

Trader/analyst Gregory Mannarino predicts, “We are going to face a moment when bonds are going to sell off rapidly, and no action by world central banks is going to be able to stop the bleeding. That means yields will spike very, very rapidly. . . . You get a sell-off in the bond market.  You get a sell-off in the stock market, and as you know, money will not go to money heaven.  It will go somewhere, and it will go into suppressed assets, things they have been rigging now for a decade.  How can world debt explode the way it is doing and certain assets, and I am referring to gold and silver here, not also be exploding to the upside?  This is all being done to prop up the markets, and there is going to be an awful price to pay for this.”

WILKERSON’S EUROPEAN ECONOMIC CRISIS IS NOW UPON US 5-29-2018

The other day I wrote that I thought the economic conditions predicted by Pastor David Wilkerson were happening. Pastor Wilkerson had a church in downtown New York City, where he lived a modest life. Wilkerson wasn’t like that fool of a “preacher” whining for money to buy a 54 million dollar private jet. No, Wilkerson was a true man of God, and his “prophecies” ring true. Further, his basic statement was an economic collapse would be triggered by economic chaos in Europe: Germany, Spain, Greece and Italy. The link below indicates a rout is now underway in Europe: TODAY.  The bottom line is Wilkerson’s “economic collapse prophecy” is happening right before our eyes. How far the economic crisis will spread is something I can’t say. I will say the lethal combination of debt and derivatives is now reaching critical mass. The political results from that will have a global impact and likely lead to even more global chaos down the road.

Global Markets Descend Into Contagious Panic As Italy Implodes

EBOLA WARNING UPDATE 5-28-2018

My blog readers know I have been following the current Ebola outbreak in Africa for some time now. While I have attempted to provide timely, accurate and reasonable information about this outbreak, I have not pulled any punches. Therefore, I am bringing this to your attention for one reason. You need to have factored in how you will personally prepare for an Ebola outbreak here in CONUS. I am not saying that is going to happen. I am saying it might happen, and all of us need to “honor the threat.” If you wait until “they” tell you Ebola is here in CONUS, it will be too late. The following is based on FACTS, and not hysteria, or breathless announcements colored by “doom porn.” You may take it seriously, or you may ignore it. The choice is up to you, but one of the reasons I started this blog in the first place, was to provide information, credible information, to my blog readers so they can make intelligent, informed decisions based on the information I provide them. Take the below with as much salt as you care too, but be aware the following isn’t doom porn. The information is based on FACTS, solid, documented data and reflects a reasonable analysis based on that information. The bottom line is the 3 people who escaped the DRC hospital, well two of them were late stage, highly infectious and went to a public venue with nearly 60 people there.

The below is my comments over at timebomb2000.com

21 DAYS UNTIL EBOLA CHAOS

Barbou posted her article here on May 28th. The article stated the “Ebola breakout,” happened on Monday, May 21st. Further, the article stated the “incubation period,” for Ebola was 21 days.

THIS MEANS THE 50 TO 60 PEOPLE EXPOSED TO THE LATE STAGE, HIGHLY, HIGHLY INFECTIOUS EBOLA PATIENTS WERE EXPOSED ON MAY 21ST. FURTHER, “THEY” NOW THINK UP TO 600 ADDITIONAL PEOPLE WERE EXPOSED, WHO THEN EXPOSED STILL MORE PEOPLE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS THREE WEEKS FROM MAY 21ST IS JUNE 11TH. FINALLY, IF ANY OF THOSE ORIGINAL PEOPLE WERE INFECTED, AND THEY THEN INFECTED OTHERS DURING THE THREE WEEK PERIOD, WE WILL SEE A SPIRAL TYPE INCREASE IN TOTAL EBOLA PATIENTS STARTING ON JUNE 11TH, AND THEN CONTINUING TO INCREASE IN NUMBERS OVER THE NEXT MONTH OR SO.

WE SHOULD ALSO BEAR IN MIND THAT IF ANY OF THE INFECTED TRAVELED IT WILL FURTHER SPREAD THE DISEASE IN AFRICA. IT MAY ALSO SPREAD GLOBALLY DEPENDING ON WHO WAS EXPOSED, HOW MANY WERE EXPOSED, AND WHERE THEY WENT FROM THAT ONE CITY. IF ANY OF THEM GOT ON THE RIVER AND WENT ANYWHERE, YOU WILL HAVE ADDITIONAL, SEPARATE EBOLA OUTBREAKS START TO HAPPEN.

Oh yeah, mid June may be the start date for the real Ebola outbreak.

https://www.theorganicprepper.com/ebola-outbreak-us/

A new Ebola outbreak is on the radar in the Congo and just over a week ago had reached a city of more than a million people. Well, things likely got a whole lot worse over the weekend when family members of 3 infectious patients with confirmed cases of Ebola broke them out of quarantine and took them to a prayer meeting with at least 50 people. That may seem like it’s a long way from the US but read on.

People at the prayer meeting were definitely exposed, as two of the patients were in the most infectious stages of the disease, with vomiting and diarrhea.

Two of the three escapees are dead and the third was returned to the quarantine center.

The UK Independent interviewed Dr. Jean-Clement Cabrol, emergency medical coordinator for Medecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders):

“The escape was organized by the families, with six motorcycles as the patients were very ill and couldn’t walk,” Dr. Cabrol told a news briefing in Geneva after returning from the affected region.

“They were taken to a prayer room with 50 people to pray. They were found at two in the morning, one of them dead and one was dying. So that’s 50-60 contacts right there. The patients were in the active phase of the disease, vomiting.” (source)

It’s not unusual in the Congo for this to happen, according to WHO spokesperson Tarik Jasarevic.

He said that both of the deceased had been given a safe and dignified burial and added that “it was only human” that sick people wanted to be with their families “in what could be the last moments of life”.

“It is very unfortunate that people fled the treatment centre, but it is not unexpected. We had this in previous outbreaks,” he said. (source)

Jasarevic said that this makes it particularly important to engage with the community so they can understand how Ebola spreads and the urgency of getting medical attention.

Tracking down the contacts of the escaped Ebola patients

Now the work begins of tracking down everyone with whom the escaped patients may have been in contact to try and prevent the outbreak from getting out of the city into an even more populated area.

Because Ebola has a 21-day incubation period, an infected person might not realize they have contracted the disease until it’s too late and they’ve exposed uncounted others to it.

Health officials started trying to trace the motorcycle drivers and other people who came into contact with the patients as soon as the escape was reported, Dr. Peter Salama, head of emergency response at the WHO, told Reuters.

“From the moment that they escaped, the health ministry, WHO, and partners have been following very closely every contact,” he said.

All it takes is one sick person to travel down the Congo River and we can have outbreaks seeded in many different locations … that can happen at any moment. It’s very hard to predict,” he said, referring to the river linking the trading hub of Mbandaka to the capital Kinshasa, whose population is 10 million.

More than 600 contacts have been identified so far.

Could this Ebola outbreak spread to Europe and the US?

If a person with Ebola gets to the capital city, that’s when people in other areas really need to begin paying attention. Kinshasa is a major transportation hub.

Software called FLIRT (FLIght Risk Tracker) has determined where the virus could potentially spread from there.

photo credit EcoHealth Alliance

They used flight date from the airports in Mbandaka, Kinshasa, and Brazzaville to predict the places most at risk for infection and found that these cities are the most closely connected to the point of origin.

  • Pointe-Noire, Republic of Congo
  • Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
  • Brazzaville, Republic of Congo
  • Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Brussels, Belgium
  • Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Paris, France
  • Nairobi, Kenya
  • Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Kisangani, Democratic Republic of Congo

The countries which are the most connected are:

  • Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Republic of Congo
  • Ethiopia
  • Belgium
  • France
  • Kenya
  • South Africa
  • Gabon
  • Morocco
  • Côte d’Ivoire

It’s not hard to see how easily this outbreak could reach highly populated parts of Europe. And then, it could go anywhere.

Including the United States. EcoHealth Alliance reports:

The analysis ranks the United States 17th on the list, with 0.5 percent of outgoing passengers entering the country. The U.S. cities with the highest percentage (greater than 0.01 percent) of incoming passengers coming from the Democratic Republic of Congo are:

  1. New York (JFK): 0.13% of US-bound passengers coming from the Region of Interest (ROI)
  2. Miami (MIA): 0.11% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  3. Atlanta (ATL): 0.06% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  4. Boston (BOS): 0.05% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  5. Los Angeles (LAX): 0.05% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  6. Detroit (DTW): 0.04% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  7. Washington, D.C. (IAD): 0.02% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  8. Cincinnati (CVG): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  9. Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  10. Newark (EWR): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  11. Chicago (ORD): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  12. Ft. Lauderdale (FLL): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI

It only takes one sick person on any of these flights to result in a global pandemic that could wipe out millions of people.

“While the percentage of overall passengers entering the U.S. from that region is low,” said Dr. Peter Daszak, President of EcoHealth Alliance. “With approximately half a million passengers traveling from the Democratic Republic of Congo each year, the disease requires just one infected traveler to cause a global public health emergency, and this helps us be forewarned and prepared.” (source)

The last time Ebola reached our shores, we got very, very lucky. One patient completely overwhelmed an entire hospital. If there were hundreds or thousands of patients across the country, it wouldn’t take long for things to devolve into absolute chaos. Ebola can have a death rate as high as 90%.

Like I said in the previous article I wrote on this topic, it isn’t time to batten down the hatches but it’s certainly time to be watchful and make sure that you are prepared for the potential of a pandemic. As you can see, it isn’t a stretch of the imagination to think that the deadly disease could once again reach the US.

Ebola could easily spread outside the Congo and by the time it does, everyone else will be vying for the same supplies.
