I had a lot of people emailing me this story  in various versions in the past week about the explosion at the synthetic rubber chemical plant in Port Neches, Texas:

Massive explosion at chemical plant in Port Neches, Texas lights up night sky (VIDEOS)

60,000 people ordered to flee as another explosion rocks burning Texas chemical plant (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

If you're a regular reader here, you know me: I'm very skeptical of all these explosions. In fact, it seems as if we've seen a raft of them, beginning with the strange explosion of the Chinese chemical plant in Tianjin east of Beijing a few years ago. Remember that one? I even blogged about it. (See  and  and This was followed by yet another explosion at a Chinese chemical plant, and then of course we watched two Russian ammunition dumps and munitions factories explode, another explosion at a Russian hospital, an explosion of an ammo dump in Iraq, another chemical plant explosion in Rouen, France, and now a chemical plant explosion in Port Neches, Texas.

The Iraqi ammunition dump explosion I found highly suspicious, if for no other reason than that Arabs have been stockpiling munitions for decades in high heat without incident. They know how to do it. And similarly, the Chinese, French, Russians, and Americans know how to run chemical plants and store ammunition. Or do they? We'll get back to that in a moment.

If there's a pattern here, it's this: the explosions seem to be either mainly in petro-chemical plants, or ammunition facilities. And they pose a nasty and highly problematical question: have the people running chemical plants and storing ammunition from France, Russia, and China to Texas all of a sudden become curiously incompetent and stupid? (Or, to put it differently, did they all attend American schools and learn their unique gifts of incompetence and stupidity from Common Core?) Or are we looking at something more sinister?

Back when the Tianjin explosion occurred, I speculated that perhaps it was not an accident, but a message. But if a message, who's sending it? If we assume that the raft of these explosions is not accidental, nor incompetence, nor stupidity, then other questions of interpretation arise: are we looking at a kind of covert warfare going on between the countries involved? Or are we looking at one behind-the-scenes actor, with tentacles in each of the affected countries? Or are we looking at cyber-warfare, such as some suspect was involved at Fukushima? or are we looking at some sort of exotic technology able to detonate munitions and chemical plants at a distance? Some, for example, speculated after the Tianjin chemical plant explosion that a "rod of God" may have been the culprit, due to the extraordinarily deep and narrow crater left at the site of the plant. Others, myself included, have speculated that some sort of exotic energy weaponry may be involved, similar to what has been speculated for some of the California fires anomalies.

So on to the high octane speculation of the day, because there's another pattern in evidence here. It's one of those obvious things that one doesn't notice until the obviousness attracts a bit of attention. And it's a curiously contradictory pattern. In some cases, there's a rush to (nonsensical) explanation. For example, in the case of the Iraqi ammunition dump explosion, there was a rush to explain it all as being due to high heat, the destabilization of explosives due to that, and so on. As I pointed out in a previous blog, that doesn't make much sense to me, because as I pointed out, all major combatants in the region in the past few decades have been storing munitions all over the place, without incident. But in most other cases, there is a curious lack of explanation of the explosions, or if there is, they are long on narrative and short on plausible details.

It's not much to go on, of course. As the old adage goes, the absence of evidence is not evidence of the absence of evidence, or something like that. It's that strangely contradictory pattern both of the rush to explain certain incidents (the Iraqi ammo dump explosion) and the curious lack of explanation in other cases (Tianjin, Novosibirsk, Port Neches) that raises my suspicion meter into the red zone.

Or to put it country simple: my money is not of the "string of coincidences" hypothesis... covert ops are a game that two or more can play.

See you on the flip side...

    I am going to go with an ‘opposite’ hypothesis: that things are remarkably calm. I was raised in a military family, and initially saw the world through military eyes. That includes everything from strategic down through tactical and down to what ‘partisans’ could do. From the last point of view, the world is absolutely chock-full of targets of opportunity…

    So, I take that only a handful of ‘targets’ are taken-out in a year as remarkable . With the pot of whipped-up hatred and revenge-thinking aboil, I could easily see hundreds if not thousands of ‘targets’ taken-out in a year, worldwide. Where is all the fire and destruction?

    Slipping back into a Gizar point-of-view (ancient warfare, groups of survivors, continuity of purpose), it comes down to: How big is the conspiracy? Is it big enough that you don’t touch a ‘competitor’s’ infrastructure without word from The Top ? If so, that would explain the minimum of fires/explosions worldwide. A few, sure – just enough to keep a “managed terror” ongoing and the sheeple huddled-down and obedient. (And some true accidents.) But not enough ‘hits’ to really damage worldwide infrastructure…

      A ‘semi-public’ example:
      “The Oligarch Takeover of US Pharma and Healthcare – And the Resulting Human Crisis”
      “But it is worse than that. All the monopolists (in official parlance, oligopolies) are in turn owned by the same set of investors in what is called horizontal shareholding. The same some 15-20 investors have the controlling stake in all the leading companies of the entire pharma and healthcare industry.

      That’s not all. Two of the investors, BlackRock and Vanguard , are the biggest owners in almost every single one of the leading companies.

      Furthermore, BlackRock is owned by Vanguard, BlackRock’s biggest owner being a mystical PNC Services , whose biggest owner in turn is Vanguard. Vanguard itself is recorded directly as BlackRock’s second biggest owner. Moreover, BlackRock and Vanguard are the two biggest owners of almost all the other 15-20 biggest investors, which most are cross-owned and together own the entire US pharma and healthcare sector. Ultimately, then we might have the situation that the whole healthcare sector and Big Pharma are controlled by one giant oligarch clan (and the very real people who stand behind them), one single interest group of oligarch investors.

      Besides, it’s the same for the entire US economy. Those two investors control almost all major US companies.”

      “We established that institutional investors like BlackRock, Vanguard, State Street, Fidelity, and JP Morgan , now (2016) own 80% of all stock in S&P 500 listed companies. The Big Three investors – BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street – alone constitute the largest shareholder in 88% of S&P 500 firms, which roughly correspond to America’s 500 largest corporations. Both BlackRock and Vanguard are among the top five shareholders of almost 70% of America’s largest 2,000 publicly traded corporations.”

    The Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake in California was also taken out of commission after the Ridgecrest earthquakes on the 4th of July. More than 20 ammunition storage magazines are now “unsuitable for continued use” in the 1.1 million acres facility which created and tested some of the world’s most advanced weapons.

      That’s what I was looking for.

      “This area does not fit the textbook picture of sides of a plate sliding past one another,” and instead the relatively short faults criss-cross each other on more than one plane. (In fact, the 6.4-magnitude quake began at a depth of 6.6 miles, or 10.7 km, while the epicenter of the bigger quake was much deeper, some 10.6 miles, or 17 km, beneath the surface.)

      All the most suspect quakes over the last 10 or 15 years struck at 9 to 11 kilometer depths. Odd that 10 klik depth. Stands out when looking at a table of all quakes listed with their depths.

      Wonder what depth, artificial quakes will be initiated once enough low orbit satellites are armed with elf generators.

    David Hawkins – London Bridge: Random Terror or Targeted SERCO / Fishmonger Hit? Take 2

    Different operation but similar in terms of plausible / implausible splanations. Ran across this yesterday. Not sure how much Goodman and Hawkins are limited hangouts. Either way this is a more plausible narrative than what we got so far. Info on SERCO is more and more intriguing in terms of capabilities, crimes and other ops.

    • DanaThomas on December 3, 2019 at 1:35 pm

      Interesting despite all of Hawkins’ digressions and Goodman’s interruptions. This story of fighting actually breaking out on the very premises of the elite City institution of the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers (an aspect finally reported in the British press a couple of days after the incident on the bridge itself) suggests that the events were piloted. People just don’t wander around freely and unsurveilled in such places wearing ankle bracelets and carrying knives, narwhal tusks and whatnot.

      • zendogbreath on December 3, 2019 at 7:05 pm

        What? You imply it was staged? Well I never.

      • Maatkare3114 on December 4, 2019 at 5:50 am

        Dana Thomas : About the latest London Bridge incident – Have you not heard about the rising knife crimes in London? This year alone there have been more than 120 fatal stabbings in London, and the West Midlands police are reporting 14 stabbings a day.
        Khan started his attack in a downstairs room of the Fishermans Hall which was holding an event on rehabilitating prisoners, but was grabbed by the conference-goers and thrown out of the front door as he tried to go upstairs. When Khan stormed onto London Bridge wearing a very believable suicide vest, he was chased by a man who had armed himself with a narwhal tusk which he had grabbed from the wall inside the hall. The heroism of members of the public that day were astounding.
        You said ‘People just don’t wander around freely and unsurveilled in such places wearing ankle bracelets and carrying knives, narwhal tusks and whatnot.’…Unfortunately due to our over liberal laws on convicted terrorists, Khan WAS allowed to walk the streets wearing a released prisoners tag, and the narwhal tusk I have explained above.

          Reminds me of that school that must not be named that was attacked by an autistic kid who stole his Mom’s weapons and allegedly shot up zillions of kids who’s bodies were never shown let alone delivered to their parents let alone autopsied before the school and all evidence was destroyed and oh yeh, that autistic shooter weighed like 115# and was laden with body armor, ammo and weapons to the tune of like 120# and the shooter skills to unzip brand new armored entry doors with fully functional recently installed video monitor systems that didn’t work…………………………………………………

        • zendogbreath on December 4, 2019 at 11:18 am

          These narratives also got me thinking of all the suicidings we have been told about. People being hung from a door knob with their own belt after severely beating themselves just after producing videos on pedo networks, or conditions in oppressed middle east countries, or people shooting themselves in the head twice after repeatedly exposing Iran Contra cocaine gang connections.

          Was this knuckleheaded prisoner suicided in a manner that made him a scapegoat for a contract killing that was being done at the same time and the same place?

  7. Robert Barricklow on December 3, 2019 at 11:54 am

    No doubt there’s hidden covert warfare afoot; lots of player’s hats are in the mix, and plenty of the usual suspects. No doubt they’d like to keep a lid on this potentially explosive speculation from going mainstream.
    Or would they?
    Fear is a lovely emotion, in their mad book of likes.
    Yet, it looks like this will ratchet up as the hats plant false flags of others’ signatures at explosion sites. A mad game of 3-Card Monte explosions; whose/which shell nation is it? that’s covering those explosions up? Was it really them; or, a fake out?
    Oh what a tangled web of explosive accusations being lost in all the smoke & faction mirrors/of whose the greatest power of them all?

    In 1773, the reluctant papal ban against the Jesuit “superstructure” was forced, by the major catholic kingdoms, i.e. the “princes of this world” against the pope, being “the great architect of the universe”.

    “The end justifies the means” was the bloodstained Jesuit motto, when “making war by way of deception”, as agents and double agents, who wreaked havoc in Europe, by Borgia methods, in two centuries.

    In 1717, five years after the last religious war, the Jesuits started infiltrating the stonemason guilds, by sleeper cells, to create a new facade for their mafia – with papal deniability.

    Jesuit = Freemason = Communist.

  10. Billy Bob on December 3, 2019 at 8:02 am

    Well well Oil well….below is quote from the Texas Tribune 11/27/19 edition:
    “The facility owned by Houston-based Texas Petroleum Chemicals, or TPC Group, which manufactures highly flammable 1,3 butadiene, has been considered a high priority violator by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for more than two years, and been out of compliance with federal clean air laws since the agency’s last inspection in August 2017. State data shows the facility has reported spewing more air pollution than allowed by its government-issued permits five times this year, including hundreds of pounds of butadiene.” (Used in making synthetic rubber.).
    The TPC group is the world’s largest independent (from whom? I guess the multi-nationals…) producer of crude C4.
    What are C4 Products?
    Crude C4 – a gas mixture comprising of C4 olefins – is produced in the steam cracker; using a proprietary BASF extraction process, it is then separated into butadiene and isobutene. The residue, a mixture of butene and butanes, is then mainly used internally in BASF’s value chains.
    Butadiene is a key raw material for the production of e.g. tires, paper and plastics.
    I don’t know, could be a market consolidation project or insurance money to build new facilities…The first entry that popped up in Google search was for personal injury lawyers.
    But then this is Texas and that is how our current invalid governor got his money. (While attending law school in Houston an oak tree fell on him while he was jogging in one of Houston’s wealthiest neighborhoods…ironic huh? It does pay to get an American education.

      This is peace breaking out in a Military Industrial Complex as @goshawks says
      December 3, 2019 at 9:25 pm. Earnings are down the drain due to banks and gov trying to hide the inflation of the world currency USD. They can’t just close down industrial facilities worldwide, easier to just ignite and scrap the rest. Historical low prices on oil, steel, gold whatever. Last solution; insurance money, just like 911. Think about the price taking down a +100 storey building full of asbestos, legally?

    I do not discount any of your possible scenarios, Doc, but i do believe there is also a natural element to the whole thing….one that they’re taking FULL advantage of.
    That is; the earths weakening magnetic field AND the ongoing solar minimum.
