“Might Take Weeks” – Suez Canal Still Closed As “Enormous Beached Whale” Ship Remains Stuck

The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) reported Thursday it had suspended traffic along the 120-mile long canal while eight tugboats worked to free a massive containership, according to Reuters.

SCA’s statement said thirteen vessels had sailed south along the canal on Wednesday and were waiting in the canal’s lakes until the containership was refloated. On either side of the canal’s entrances, dozens of ships are piling up as the world’s most crucial shipping lane grinds to a halt.

The container ship called the Ever Given, owned by Evergreen Marine Corp., “could be stuck in the canal for weeks,” according to the firm working to dislodge the vessel.

Peter Berdowski, CEO of Dutch company Boskalis which has been tasked to dislodge Ever Given, was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying:

“We can’t exclude it might take weeks, depending on the situation. It’s an enormous weight on the sand. We might have to work with a combination of reducing the weight by removing containers, oil and water from the ship, tug boats, and dredging of sand.” 

Berdowski compared the 1,312ft-long, 175ft-wide, 200,000-ton vessel to an “enormous beached whale” as he suggested offloading cargo might be one solution to refloat the ship.

A source familiar with the matter told Bloomberg that Ever Given is “lodged approximately 5 meters into the canal’s bank, hindering efforts to re-float it fully.”

As many as 50 vessels pass through the canal on a given day, which means upwards of 150 vessels could be waiting to transit the canal. By now, some vessels have opted for alternative routes.

NYMEX WTI crude oil futures are down 2% in the overnight session and don’t seem to care about the canal’s continued shuttering. Perhaps, oil traders are refocusing on virus troubles in Europe, hindering demand.

But as we must note, if the SCA were to release a statement indicating a prolonged shutdown of the canal, crude prices would likely continue to rise. This is because 12% of global trade and 8% of liquefied natgas traverse the canal and nearly one million oil barrels each day.

On top of global supply chains already stretched thin due to the virus pandemic, the world’s most important shipping lane is paralyzed.

      Alert Greta Thunberg!

      Now she will probably kill Bill Gates for dumping CaCO3 right over her head!
      https://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/bill-gates-wants-to-spray-millions-of-tons-of-chalk-into-stratosphere-because-climate-change

      Britannica says:
      “Calcite, the most common form of natural calcium carbonate (CaCO3), a widely distributed mineral known for the beautiful development and great variety of its crystals. It is polymorphous (same chemical formula but different crystal structure) with the minerals aragonite and vaterite and with several forms that apparently exist only under rather extreme experimental conditions.”

      https://www.britannica.com/science/calcite

      “Chalk, soft, fine-grained, easily pulverized, white-to-grayish variety of limestone. Chalk is composed of the shells of such minute marine organisms as foraminifera, coccoliths, and rhabdoliths. The purest varieties contain up to 99 percent calcium carbonate in the form of the mineral calcite. The sponge spicules, diatom and radiolarian tests (shells), detrital grains of quartz, and chert nodules (flint) found in chalk contribute small amounts of silica to its composition. Small proportions of clay minerals, glauconite, and calcium phosphate also are present.”

      https://www.britannica.com/science/chalk

      Knowing what Gates is like, it is just probably going to be used to claim that he reduced his carbon footprint next year for the new accounting gimmick staged by the idiots in Silicon Valley that do not produce anything at all other than carbon and EMFs.

      Gates in the Sky with Calcium!

      Stop Gates Now!

      I would not recommend permitting Bill Gates to use the world as his own personal labratory and test tube! 

      Bill Gates really should be arrested. Since when is what Gates doing nothing less than eco-destruction and eco-terrorism? He is doing this in a pre-meditated, effort. Gates chalk dumping is completely deliberate stratospheric litering. It is the sole intention of this chalk dumping. There are far too many variables involved in this as well and no control model either which would not allow this to be able to justify calling this a scientific experimient, when it totally ignores the scientific method. It is not an experiment. It is the brazen act of a crazed maniac.

      Something strange is taking place on Global Research website which has opposed all of the draconian measures related to the scamdemic. 
      Today, The Swiss Policy Research Institute which has also opposed all of the draconian measures in the past is suddenly claiming that the
      “covid-19” injections are great for people under 60, and Global Research also featured an article by the American Economic Policy Institute that falsely claims the same, and neither of those articles list the inherent risks involved with the “vaccines” and do not make any differentiation between the many snake oil companies that are pushing the shots onto people, most of which have had lengthy histories of fraud, abuse, malfeasance, and mal-practice. Peter Koenig and Binoy Kampmarc have also made significant changes to their claims as well which I notices earlier this week. 

      “I don’t know how someone controlled you 

      They bought and sold you.” – The Beatles

      I had also reported on that years ago. Almost every member of the press is a CFR member.

      I believe that Gates, Trump, InfraGard, and Center for Global Engagement are responsible for the lying in the alt right and alt left that did not exist prior to QAnon, and increased with “covid-19.” Sorros is probably also funding the alt left in this too. All of the Sputnik radio show hosts went bananas at the onset of the pandemonium and are full fledged big pharma propagandists. I did not always agree, and there were sometimes mistakes, but opinions and mistakes are much different than outright deliberate pathological lying in and participating in an evil conspiracy and psy-op  of death and destruction, which is in real terms, a covert war.

      According to Wikispooks:

      “Financing of Journalism
      Research by the Columbia Journalism Review examined 20,000 charitable grants by the Gates Foundation and found that more than $250 million dollars went toward journalism like the news organisation NPR, which covers other philanthropic endeavors of the foundation in a favorable way. Other recipients of grants are: BBC, NBC, Al Jazeera, ProPublica, National Journal, The Guardian, Univision, Medium, The Financial Times, The Atlantic, The Texas Tribune, Gannett, Washington Monthly, Le Monde, and The Center for Investigative Reporting.[34] It is more than likely that financing of media organisations through foundation money will generally influence their reporting directly, or like advertising before, create a friendly media environment.
      The full scope of Gates’s giving to the news media remains unknown because the foundation only publicly discloses money awarded through charitable grants, not through contracts.[35]”

      I happen to be of the opinion that this was done by China in order to prevent Wuhan residents who had been protesting for years prior to the Wuhan Military Games over a number of grievances against the Chinese government, including waste incinerators being built, and were quarantined strictly for political reasons immediately prior to the nationally and internationally Chinese New Year in order to prevent protests at the parade that would spill over into the rest of China. That is why the lockdowns happened in America and the rest of the world as well, in part. China took the lead, and everyone followed suit. Illnesses on cruise ships have been common for years prior to this, and I know this for an absolute fact. So that is not anything out of the ordinary for cruise ships, which also were the initial people claimed to be infected with “covid-19.” China’s exports also declined prior to this and their economy was contracting. Trump’s sanctions and import taxes were large contributing factors to this. The Repo markets also broke down prior to “covid-19” followed by the break down of the oil market, all coinciding with massively overinflated stock markets. Everyone knew that the bubble was about to burst, in fact it is shocking that it didn’t happen years ago, and if the plunge protection team did not exist, it would have, because everyone knew that there really is no there there. It doesn’t take a mathemtician to figure this out. When you have companies like SnapChat, that do not charge for using it, do not advertise, and do not sell user data, there is no income source other than the stock market, the bond market, banks, or the government. That meets the criteria for a Ponzi Scheme by definition. To deny it is anything other than a Ponzi scheme, or more accurately many Ponzi Schemes, is a lie. Over 97% of publicly traded comlanies do not use GAAP.

      I am preparing the public for the fraudulent marketing scam by Colgate Palmolive for Colgate Zero, marketed as all natural vegan toothpaste, which contains toxic sodium flouride found in tootpaste and tap water which is an unnatural man made product and is a byproduct of aluminum smelting.

      The whole scam to add sodium flouride was based on junk science in which a study had concluded that people in regions high in naturally occuring calcium flouride had fewer cavities and fewer bone fractures because calcium and not flouride promotes stronger bones and teeth. Sodium flouride is a corrosive chemical resulting in flourosis which degrades calcium in bones and teeth resulting in osteoporosis and dental cavities, discoloration, and pitting of teeth.

      Does it matter if the flavors and sweeteners are natural when the active ingredient is totally unnatural?

      How will the Repos be repaid with M1 contracting and short term time depsits increasing? That will be either a magic trick, or a swindle, the latter being the more likely outcome- buying on the cheap out through forced desperation! So sick of the scams! If Silicon Valley was as environmentally concerned as they feign to be, they would not be engaging in engineered obsolescence! Concerned about the environment, only if they can financially benefit from carbon tax credits, otherwise, foggedaboutit!

      It looks like they were repaid with stimulous based on medical fraud in hindsight, and forced desperation like they did in 2008, but included the small and medium business sector this time.

      There  is no need for oil or gas with electric earth batteries. Electricity is in the ground and atmosphere at all times. It is visible to the naked eye even without lightening. Trillions oftiny glowing specs of electricity the size of a dust spec, and static electricty is also a form of it. It can be harnessed. There is no will for anyone to do it because it has been a protected interest since the industrial revolution. The first electric earth battery was developed in Germany in the 1880s. A few were also developed in America. The coal magnets had a vested interest in preventing their use. It was not developed by Tesla, contrary to popular belief. It was a scientific organic movement at that time.

      I believe that the 737, ill-fated heart surgery robot, World Star fast food chain franchise, and Ever Given will usually be reliable, in the hands of adequate owners / operators.

      But, seriously?

      The Taliban insists that the U.S. honor the May 1st deadline for complete military withdrawl from Afghanistan agreed to by the
      Trump administration, which the Biden administration does not believe that it is capable of honoring. Iraq and Syrian governments have said the same thing, barring the May 1st deadline, but a basic get the hell out of here! This is not your country you fucking morons! worded more diplomatically than that of course.

    10. They’re sending the US military over to assess the problem and help fix it.

      Well…sure…the US military’s been “fixin’ things” all over the world for decades…

    11. Opps. some body screwed the pouch again

      Some of these landmarks were built with wooden wheelbarrows.

      Hung up on 15ft of dirt…

      This was definitely caused by one of Dr. Samuel Cartwright’s spurious slave diseases.

    13. They’re waiting with bated breath for some of those shipping containers to be opened.

      The ship’s name is Ever Given. It’s call sign is H3RC. The name of the shipping line is Evergreen…Secret Service’s code name for Hillary as First Lady. The containers are full of trafficked kids and the cover will be blown on live teevee.

      Sez Qanon tards.

      Just hope it doesn’t adversely continue to adversely affect the supply chain.
