The mystery deepens.

A week or so ago, conspiracy theorists were scratching their heads as to why more than 8500 people in Australia would suddenly have to a hospitalized in a concentrated wave allergies that left several people dead.

Now, a similar event has been reported in Kuwait, where reports claim that thunderstorm activity has triggered a mass reaction and nearly a thousand people were taken to the hospital with severe asthma; again, several people died.

So what is really going on? Is a covert, deadly substance being deliberately sprayed from planes (as governments did back in the sixties, and countless times since)? Or is is just something harmful being swept up from nearby farms and factories?

Whatever the explanation, the pattern is completely bizarre, especially since it has now happened in back to back cases, despite the fact that the phenomenon has been sparsely documented and extremely rare, to the point of being unheard of.

The following was translated from Arabic to English via Google, so there may be errors or poor interpretations.

But at this point, there isn’t much else to go on.

Via Hamrin News (a Kurdish-oriented news outlet published from Germany):

Kuwait – 1-12 (KUNA) – Undersecretary of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Health, Dr. Khalid Al-Sahlawi said that the country’s hospitals and five deaths were recorded during the past two days due to emergency cases of patients with asthma were suffering from suffocation and breathing difficulties.

He Sahlawi in a press statement Friday that the 844 emergency entered into the country’s hospitals during the past two days died, including five cases, three of which in Mubarak Hospital and two at the Amiri Hospital while entered the 26 cases in intensive care and 45 cases to the wings with out the rest of the cases after receiving the necessary treatment.

He explained that the sections of accidents in hospitals declared a state of emergency and prepare to receive critical situations and make the necessary first aid and called for emergency contact numbers in case of any emergency through the 112 ambulance and 151 medical consultations.

While officials are quick to reassure everyone that it is perfectly normal for so many people to be suddenly affected, this really isn’t a routine occurrence, and somebody must have better explaining to do.

Just like the Zika virus, so-called “Thunderstorm Asthma” wasn’t even a thing that anyone talked about until recently when it supposedly hit Australia a couple weeks ago on November 21st, sending some 8,500 people to the emergency room in a matter of hours and killing eight people so far.

Emergency officials described the scene like “150 bombs going off,” and at the height of the emergency, someone was dialing 9-1-1 for an ambulance every 4.5 seconds as people en masse began having asthma and heart attacks. Emergency services were so overwhelmed in Melbourne, they ran out of ambulances and even other emergency vehicles like fire trucks and police cars, and they were forced to use non-emergency vehicles. One girl reportedly died in her families arms on their front lawn waiting for an ambulance.

Officials claim it works like this: pollen fills the air and then, after a sudden weather change, a huge thunderstorm blows through, causing the pollen to swell and burst into nanoparticles. When the rain stops, the mass of “thunderstorm asthma” ensues.

An official Wikipedia page for “thunderstorm asthma” explains that it has happened in a handful of cities over the last two decades, but, as Melissa Dykes of Truthstream Media points out below, A) there have been no recorded incidences of this prior to the late 80s and B) that Wikipedia page did not exist until November 22, a day after the “rare” thunderstorm asthma hit Melbourne November 21.

Hmm… weird stuff.

Does Rare “Thunderstorm Asthma” Just Sound Made Up or What?

While it will be difficult to know just what substance, particle or chemical affected all of these sick people, one thing is plenty clear: society is not equipped to take care of all of us if a bigger enough emergency takes place. It isn’t due to any shortcoming on the part of medical staff, but rather the overwhelming catastrophe of something wide enough to be like a contagion.

There just isn’t enough manpower or ambulances enough to save us all. That’s why it is essential to be equipped with emergency medical supplies and skills, as well as CBRN-rated bio-protective gear, and to avoid any situations that might expose anyone particularly vulnerable in your group. Those with severely weakened immune systems will need to be treated with special caution, particularly in any events that resemble those described above.

    They’re just making stuff up now. I was told by a doctor at a major university teaching hospital that no one had ever died from asthma. I wonder if that’s still true, or did all these people have something else?

  2. KY Mom says:

    I don’t believe the problems are caused by just a thunderstorm. I believe there was some sort of chemical or other toxin that was released.

    A test of some sort?

  3. Never had this stuff before. Yikes! It’s the 4 Horsemen!

    Do 1901 Expedition Logbooks Confirm There Is No Global Warming?

    “Antarctic sea ice has not changed for more than 100 years.”

    “This further demonstrates that the global warming created by man is just a fraud to get more taxes.”

    “The theory that sea ice has declined post-1950 because of man cannot be supported.”
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-02/do-1901-expedition-logbooks-confirm-there-no-global-warming

    The Latest Global Warming Narrative Fail

    “According to a study headed by Dr. Jonathan Day, published in the journal The Cryosphere, global warming has just suffered another narrative fail.

    Contrary to global warming, or climate change (or whatever they are calling it these days to fit the narrative) enthusiasts’ claim, Dr. Day and his fellow researchers have found that there has been no significant change to the Antarctic sea ice.

    It was thought that the South Pole ice has declined significantly since the 1950s; a trend scientists have insisted is linked to the increased use in fossil fuels by man. But after in-depth research of the work from explorers Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton, among others, it appears that conditions are “virtually identical” to the findings from an early 1900s exploration on the continent.”

    “declines may be part of a natural cycle, not a product of man-made global warming.”

    1. Temperature records from around the world do not support the assumption that today’s temperatures are unusual.

    2. Satellite temperature data does not support the assumption that temperatures are rising rapidly.

    3. Current temperatures are always compared to the temperatures of the 1980’s, but for many parts of the world the 1980’s was the coldest decade of the last 100+ years.

    4. The world experienced a significant cooling trend between 1940 and 1980.

    5. Urban heat island effect skews the temperature data of a significant number of weather stations.

    6. There is a natural inverse relationship between global temperatures and atmospheric CO2levels.

    7. The CO2 cannot, from a scientific perspective, be the cause of significant global temperature changes.

    8. There have been many periods during our recent history that a warmer climate was prevalent long before the industrial revolution.

    9. Glaciers have been melting for more than 150 years.

    10. “Data adjustment” is used to continue the perception of global warming.

    • Exactly. And really who gives a shit if the ice melts or the oceans rise. I make my living off energy company stocks and could care less what it does to the future of the planet. It’s the same with the N.D. pipeline. Get it in and operating. That pipeline means we don’t have to pay for truckers and trains to ship the crude, increasing profits for the Company.

      • sixpack says:

        …can ya make a decent cup of coffee with that? Or ya think ya might eventually need some clean drinking water.

        • Don’t care. We put Trump in to get rid of these stupid EPA restrictions and he had better do it. Free up drilling and fracking in this country. It is about time we opened up all of the public lands to commercial use. If these Indians don’t like it, take the land back and ship them elsewhere.

    • EIEIO says:

      I quit believing anything the EPA had to say decades ago after waking up and realizing what their agenda truly was.In the end it all boils down to MONEY!!!.Global Warming is a scam,plain and simple..Poster boy Al Gore is a hypocrite and cares less about the environment.Funny how Al Gore and family owned a mining company in Tn.,but he’s so concerned with the environment.Funny how Al had a huge desk in his office,that was made from a rare type of wood only grown in a certain part of the world.But Al is an environmentalist,LMMFAO..Global Warming is a scam being used to take away our land.

      • TRUTH BE TOLD says:

        Al also about 5 years ago sold some company to one of the oil producers in middle east and when asked if he felt it was like taking blood money, he said he saw no connection or conflict…. something like that…. scumbag

  5. off topic.

    I was researching the way people lived in merry old England to get some idea of primitive living and customs….

    They used to tan hides with urine. People used to pee in a pot and take it to the tannery and sell it to them. If you did this to survive you were considered “piss poor”. If you didn’t even have a container to collect it in you “didn’t have a pot to piss in”.

    Most got married in June cuz their yearly bath was in May. However, they were just beginning to smell. Hence the custom of the bride carrying a bouquet of flowers to hide the stank.

    Floors were dirt unless you were rich and you were then “dirt poor”.

    Bread was divided by status. Workers got the burnt bottom, family got the middle and guests got the top or “upper crust”.

    Lead cups were used for wheeesky and ale. The combination sometimes knocked the drinker out for days. In order to make sure they were actually dead, the family would lay them out and gather to eat and drink and wait to see if they woke up. This was called a “wake”.

    Cemeteries got over full so the custom was to dig up the old coffins and take the bones to a bone house and reuse the grave. 1 in 25 coffins were found with scratch marks on the inside. Seems they were burying people alive. They took to tying a string to the finger of the corpse and running it up to a bell. Some one had to sit all night in the cemetery to listen for a ring. They were on the “graveyard shift”. So, someone could either be “saved by the bell” or be a “dead ringer”.

    And that’s the way it was…

    • Ketchupondemand says:

      JRS, I read something similar:
      Deceased people were not viewed in mortuary settings.
      They were put in the parlor.
      After that they gathered in the other room (salon?) which became known as the living room.

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      And that’s why every kneegrow and Mooslime needs to put a sock in it: the reality is white people suffered the worst degradation known to man for centuries. They got out of this misery through smarts and hard work: the only two ways of getting out of poverty (apart from being a leech, and living on welfare that is). When some social justice warrior lectures about ‘stale’ white men or ‘white privilege’ they are just showing there complete lack of understanding of human history.

      The English lived in filth and most died young and full of disease. That some cocksure, ill educated black person has the nerve to lecture the descendants of these miserable folk about how rayciss they are and that they have ‘white privilege’, is a sick joke. Especially when we see how most of them live today, awash in modern luxuries like free healthcare, clean water, abundant food, yet they still can’t learn how to behave with civility.

    • The Dude says:

      Thank you for post JRS.

      How much we don’t know? How much we as a collective have forgotten?
      The power structure keeps people dumbed down-Ignorant-Deluded.
      It is getting much worse. Technology is making people almost retarded in their abilities and common sense. People are “stupid and clueless”, just how the Government wants them.

      The Robots are coming.
      After they are well established.
      Then the “Elite” will begin killing you humans on a Massive Scale.
      You Useless Eaters and Breeders, will be culled.
      That is your future. Or lack of a future.
      The Elite are coming for us.

  6. buttcrackofdoom says:

    i am trying to teach MY kids, and many others, that you DON’T rely on ANYBODY for help….you MUST learn to take care of yourself, and those around you. one way to do that cheaply is to volunteer for CERT, or community emergency response team. cities around the country TRAIN their citizens in lifesaving, first-aid, search and rescue….and it’s all FREE….look into it. you BETTER be able to take care of yourSELF when the bell rings…..healthcare/nursing textbooks are another way to educate yourself. they can be had cheap at yardsales or craigslist….nurses drug handbooks, survival books too…..and LEARN HOW TO DRIVE OFF-ROAD….they will block roads eventually, and it may be useful to drive where there are not very good roads. it really IS amazing how cheap books can be had at library, yardsales and other places…nobody want BOOKS anymore, but they will be PRICELESS(maybe even MORE expensive) once the lights go out.

    • KY Mom says:

      buttcrackofdoom,

      Teaching children to be self reliant is important. They will appreciate this when they are older.

      Growing up I wondered why my Dad was sometimes so tough on us kids. As an adult I understand.

      • PO'd Patriot says:

        +1 My Pap used to say,” Don’t look about for help cause there ain’t none a’comin’.

      • Genius says:

        Our kids are 4 legged fur farming fertilizer factories. Make sure to include them in your preps. Even if all you can afford is the cheap food they will not go hungry. I am going to get some cheap 55 gal. drums to store the cat and dog food in.

        • buttcrackofdoom says:

          when the bell DOES ring, my first reaction will be to get a LITTLE dog. they eat less, and are more loyal than big dogs. but MOST important, they got great hearing. they hear EVERYTHING…and aren’t shy to let you KNOW what’s coming. my german shepherd will scare off many, JUST by being there…but that little dog will keep you alive.

    • Anonymous says:

      Bod,
      I’ve seen a real push the last few years for people to get rid of books at drop off sites. Wouldn’t doubt if people asking for the donations root through looking for rare books. Somebody does want the masses to get rid of books. The very wealthy have extreme amounts of books and libraries in their mansions. Books are also very trendy in décor now. Somebody is profiting off these discarded or donated books. Good observation again Bod.

      • smokey says:

        The Goodwill and Salvation Army make a great deal of money off the sales of rare books. Most donations get shipped to a center for sorting and evaluation, then shipped back out to the various stores in the area. The valuables get specially priced and sold instore or online.

      • buttcrackofdoom says:

        thanks for the response, guys. it could be just as simple as kindle is so pervasive at twisting those books out of our hands and inserting their way of doing things. peeps are so addicted to their weapons of mass distraction, they just fall for anything associated with their phones and kindles…my son is addicted to that thing. his mom got it for him at 10y/old…now at 15 all he wants is a screen in his face….thanks to the internet, there’s NOTHING you can’t know….too bad.

  7. smokey says:

    Wonder what the conspiracy theories were when the dust storms of the 1930’s killed dozens of people across their paths, due to complications from asthma, respiratory failure, and such things. Dust Pneumonia was certainly real. ‘Dirt Lung’ is what some called it.

  8. I fight chemicals and bacteria with chemicals and bacteria.

    My home is so filthy that no virus or bacteria could survive one moment with me in my environment.

    I smoke like a brush fire and haven’t had a cold or flu in over a decade.

    Plus to conserve water and to partially experience SHTF, I only take a bath twice a year and shave my head in badly sour style so no comb needed and no barber fees.

  9. If this was a covert operation in order to kill people, then I’d say it failed since what – a few died out of several thousand?

  10. reader1 says:

    FWIW, if you search google by date, you can find pre-November 2016 news about it: http://www.realclearscience.com/blog/2016/02/the_curious_link_between_thunderstorms_and_asthma.html#! This is from February.

    This may be hysteria, or it might be real, but this 10 month-old news seems to indicate it is a legit, if rare, phenomenon.

    If it were a real biowar attack, I would expect some independent source to step forward with proof. Doctors ought to be able to find evidence of natural causes vs. inexplicable causes and the media is usually excited to report any unusual thing.

    I think this is probably natural, if unusual, circumstances until some doctor or analyst releases some results.

    Also-for those who’ve never been there, the middle east is full of nasty stuff, so people getting sick there is no surprise. The air in Iraq, for instance, is full of nasty stuff from petrochemical refining to toxic heavy metals in garbage fires to God knows what. I’ve breathed it and it was disgusting. Plus, the dust storms don’t help. Bad lungs aren’t too surprising in that part of the world.

  11. Jules says:

    It may have set them up for future respiratory problems. I am also sure pharmaceutical drugs sales spiked, generating a nice profit for them. Maybe if this is a set-up for future problems they will get sick over time but not all at once so it can’t be connected or attributed to this event. And any future claims that there is a connection will be denied.

  12. Frank Thoughts says:

    I suspect it has a lot to do with modern urban living. People now live in cities, many of which are choking with car pollution. Car pollution has exponentially increased since the global economic crisis, as the car industry was used as a means to rejuvenate the economy. Throw in the increasing number of people who are living who in earlier times would have died in childhood, and we have a weak population dependent on modern medicine to live. A slight atmospheric change and they start dropping like flies.

  13. PO'd Patriot says:

    How in the hell do you get pollen over in the Great Sand Pit?

  14. I can believe it is possible that Australia suffered some unusual natural phenomenon. But for the same to occur in a far distant land with a totally different soil/sand. It can not be excused so easily.

    We know that asthma can be caused by scaring in the lungs when infants are sleeping in a room where the mother cleans with caustic chemicals. This happens all the time. That is why people should ditch the chemical cleaners and use essential oils, vinegar, borax, lemon, vodka, ect.

    • Genius says:

      Use the heads (first part) of your shine run (145 proof) and re run them to 165 proof and you have some whoop ass cleaner. Takes off ink and sharpie and disinfects and can be used as fuel in a stove. Disolves tape residue etc. Leave some diluted down in a vodka bottle behind if you bugout so the intruders may have a drink and fix them up real good. Many uses to be had lol.

    • I will be interested in seeing where else it happens. These two areas don’t seem like likely spots for depopulization. It would be much more effective in China and India if you want to depopulize the world.

  15. Taking a walk in the rain is stimulating. The water in the air is being sucked up by the sun. This causes the water to turn into tiny particles which act like a natural respirator. The lungs breathe easier, absorb more oxygen and that oxygen invigorates every cell in the body, including the brain. I learned this from MY scientist friend.

    A thunderstorm should be good for asthma symptoms unless there are chemicals (perhaps Fukishima ???) which may have wound up in the ocean, picked up by the sun, formed into clouds which are being blown to all corners of the earth. Just a hypothesis (theory), idea.

    I can also theorize our leaders preparing to put the people down if they get any ideas about asserting their independence from the J*wish elitist global bankers and gangster war makers.

    oh well, f Em and have a Merry Christmas anyway, that should piss Em off

    Thunderstorm asthma that’s a new one. What’s fukashima been doing since the latest earthquake ? After Chernobyl they said the radiation came down with the rain and up with the grass. Thunderstorm? Rain? I guess they are still filling those big tanks with contaminated cooling water so there’s nothing to worry about? I’m sure Cali produce is just fine? 4 nuklear reactors and their storage pools going critical is no big deal. The Pacific Ocean will dilute it. Stop the fear porn? Nuclear power is safer and cleaner than coal. Just ask the experts. They would never lie? They went to colledge . Who are you to question them. You infidel.

  17. Cypher says:

    We dial 000 here, not 9-1-1.
    My old man was affected by a thunderstorm back in 94, I never have been but I do have asthma, extremely well controlled asthma. I live 2 hours drive from Melbourne and they warned last week for statewide events like that, nothing came of it, even in Melb.

  18. vocalpatriot says:

    Arabic to English, via google, eh?
    …yeah..try again..

  19. If this is some sort of malevolent ‘depopulation effort’ it’s an ABJECT FAILURE. A death rate of 5 out of a thousand? Not particularly effective.

  20. Runthroughthejungle says:

    Does anyone remember the Legionnaires Disease in 1979 in Philadelphia PA? I do, and then it was mentioned in the now defunct tabloid “Spotlight” that said that the entire thing seemed initiated as a testing on persons that were considered “expendable.”
    This sounds exactly the same and bears the same markings of using people that are considered “Expendable” in the same fashion as in 1970

  21. MOLD caused the Melbourne Thunderstorm Asthma incident.
    Fungi (Ergot) is poisonous.
    SOURCE of FACTS
    https://www.corbettreport.com/weather-is-not-climate/#comment-34410

    Microscopic amounts of mycotoxins carried by the wind, inhaled, can devastate the immune system.

    People commonly under-estimate how toxic some fungi and molds can be.

    This is a no brainer if one knows science and holistic organic living. (People who have ever had yeast infections know what an ordeal fungi are.)

  22. Jim Yost says:

    I live in North Alabama and I started getting asthma in 2008, which was about the time the elite started to really expand the chemtrail program (which they started in the late 90’s). I have a female cat that I adopted as a feral kitten in 2005 and she started having asthma symptoms at about the same time I did. I took her to the vet and the nurse told me that they were seeing ten times as many asthma cases in dogs and cats as they were seeing ten years earlier.
    I’m keeping my asthma at bay with vitamin C (3000 mg. per day), bromelain (2000 mg. per day), quercetin (2000, mg. per day), and turmeric (2400 mg. per day). I also take a good multi-vitamin (Vitacost Men’s 50 plus). I also use a Hulda Clark Zapper when the asthma really flares up (which is about once or twice a year). The zapper really eases it up. There are several companies that sell the zappers. I got mine from Tools For Healing in Chattanooga Tenn. They have a website. I think Amazon also sells them, and maybe Vitacost.com. The zapper I have is called “The Terminator.”

  23. A little Vicks (Eucalyptus) in a vaporizer. Make a tent with Sheets to keep the moisture in. You can go into your bathroom, turn on the hot water of your shower. Or fill your tub with hot water. The steam will help to clear the lungs.
