Petrus Romanus Arrives on 3/13/2013 at 20:13 Hours!

Petrus Romanus Arrives on 3/13/2013 at 20:13 Hours!

By Cris Putnam

According to the prophecy of St. Malachy, Petrus Romanus has arrived. Pope Francis I, formerly known as Jorge Mario Bergoglio, was the son of an Italian railroad worker from Turin, Italy. While those of shallow vision will be quick to point out “his name is not Peter,” prophecy is often fulfilled enigmatically in a manner not entirely clear until it is resolved. For example, who could have known that “labor of the sun” John Paul II would be buried during eclipse until his papacy had ended? We have stated from the beginning that the title “Peter the Roman” was likely symbolic. All popes claim apostolic succession from Peter and for this reason it is called the Petrine office. For instance, Tom Horn stated in a recent interview for World Net Daily:

Regardless, Horn said he’s always maintained that it doesn’t take someone whose Christian name is Peter to fulfill the prophecy. “In fact, if any Italian is elected, that would be a fairly transparent fulfillment,” he said. Moreover, he argued, “in a very general sense, every pope could be regarded as ‘Peter the Roman,’ and in that sense, this could be the last one.”[1]

Rome was an empire and a city so his Italian ancestry arguably meets the Roman aspect albeit in an oblique way. Interestingly, Rene Thibaut, the Jesuit who wrote in 1950 that the papacy would be abdicated in 2012, rejected the possibility of a pope named Peter and wrote that the name symbolized the totality of the papacy:

There is only one Peter, the first of the Roman pontiffs, and he was seen in his many successors. He still to serve in the final as in the first persecution. We believe Petrus Romanus represents all the Roman Pontiffs from St. Peter to the recipient Gloria Olivae.[2]

In Thibaut’s reckoning all the ambitions and pretensions of the papal dynasty are now encompassed in one man. Paramount is the fact that he is the first ever Jesuit pope. This has great prophetic significance as the Jesuit order was formed to specifically to combat the protestant reformation and assert papal supremacy over the entire world. According to a historian, “The Jesuits were the soldiers of the pope: they knew no law but the will of their general, no mode of worship but the pope’s dictate no church but themselves.” [3] Because of this, the Jesuit order was suppressed and disbanded for its pernicious skullduggery by Pope Clement XIV in 1773 and by the mid-eighteenth century, the Jesuits had earned a bad reputation in Europe for political maneuvering and economic exploitation bar none. Interestingly, Pope Benedict XVI addressed the Jesuit order in 2008 encouraging them reinvigorate the fourth vow. He said,

For this very reason I have invited you and also invite you today to reflect in order to rediscover the fullest meaning of your characteristic “fourth vow” of obedience to the Successor of Peter, …[4]

The fourth vow of obedience to the pope is one of “absolute subservience to the pope; to do whatever he enjoined, and go on any service he wished, and into any quarter of the globe.”[5] A few ex-Jesuits have called this a blood oath involving pagan rites which were laid bare in the suppressed document “Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction” which was recorded in records of the U.S. Congress. According to this document, they are indoctrinated into the principle of IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS:

When a Jesuit of the minor rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three others present, the principal or Superior standing in front of the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colours, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM NECAR REGES IMPIUS. The meaning of which is: It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers.[6]

While modernists surely prefer more subtle methods, we address the Jesuit’s who make up the Vatican Observatory Research Group in some detail in our new book Exo-Vaticana and offer some surprising revelations as to what might entice the entire world to unite under the new pontiff. Even so, other researchers document an ongoing militaristic campaign:

Today the Jesuit Order has about 19.000 members. Of the about 13.500 priest members, some have taken the 4th vow secret oath in which killing a ‘heretic’ is not considered a crime. The ranks of Jesuits are thinning; From 36,000 members at the order’s zenith in the mid-1960?s, to 26,000 in 1983, to 23,000 in 1995 [10]. The Jesuits are geographically organized by 91 provinces (61?), which each belong to one of 10 assistancies around the world.

The Military Order of Malta has about 12.500 members (excluding volunteers), and Opus Dei has about 26,000 celibate members (excluding volunteers).

The Vatican-Jesuit-Masonic crusades, up to our present time, show their criminal “full-spectrum dominance” doctrine is effectuated all over the world by:

War, genocide and depopulation (recent examples: Canadian natives genocide between 1880-1984, the “Vatican managed Serbian genocide during WWII” with an ongoing US court case, and the ongoing Shia Muslim genocide in Iraq with over 1.217.892 deaths)

Political subversions

Economic slavery

Poor quality nutrition, healthcare and housing

Government propaganda (via education, media, science, and religion)

Suppression of sovereignty, consciousness and spirituality. [7]

In Petrus Romanus we stated our belief that the name “Peter the Roman” implies this pope “will reaffirm the authority of the Roman Pontiff over the Church” and “will emphasize the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Faith and the Roman Catholic Church above all other religions and denominations, and its authority over all Christians and all peoples of the world.”[8] This seems in line with the Jesuit agenda. Still more, Catholic mystic Ronald L. Conte Jr., who predicted in 2002 that the successor to John Paul II would choose the name Benedict XVI, commented on 3-13-13:

I never expected Peter the Roman to be Italian or Roman or to have the first name Peter, or to take the papal name “Peter”. So these points do not imply that Pope Francis is not Peter the Roman. The prophetic phrases of St. Malachy describe the Pontificate of each Pope, not his name.[9]

According to Conte, “During the reign of Pope Peter the Roman, the great apostasy begins” and this pope will mark “the first part of the tribulation, during our generation.”[10]

The media and Catholic faithful have been celebrating his choice of the papal name Francis, which is a first, and most folks assume it is inspired by St. Francis of Assisi. Interestingly, in Petrus Romanus we wrote of an apocalyptic prophecy given by the alleged namesake:

Even Saint Francis of Assisi—one of the most venerated religious figures in history—gathered his devotees shortly before his death and prophesied that: “At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death… Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it…for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.”[11]

Was there something uncannonical about the election of Pope Francis I? It seems arguable. For starters, Pope Benedict XVI simply retiring makes for an unprecedented situation. Next, the fifteen day rule between the vacancy of the office and the start of the conclave was circumvented in order to speed up the process. The two living popes situation alone supports a charge of one “not canonically elected” but more mysteriously, there seems to be something fishy going on with his heraldry. According to one expert, “As can be seen on the coat of arms, he was not a bishop, despite being cardinal.”[12] This was Cardinal Bergoglio’s coat of arms as of 2010:

See: http://heraldicaargentina.blogspot.com/2010/06/heraldica-eclesiastica-en-la-argentina.html

It uses the Jesuit Solar deity symbol, The Jesuits maintian that IHS stands for first three letters of the Greek name of Jesus, iota-eta-sigma but if so the name is ?????? so why not use the Greek letters ? ? ? ? Alternately, while it seems fanciful, some occult researchers claim it really means: Isis, Horace, Set:

Jesuit sun symbol

Yet by Roman Catholic heraldic standards all bishops are required to include the archiepiscopal cross as well.

archiepiscopal cross

However, even though his coat of arms (dated 2001) lacked the required cross, we know that he was in fact a bishop prior to 2001. Bergoglio was named Auxiliary Bishop of Buenos Aires in 1992 and was ordained on 27 June 1992 as Titular Bishop of Auca.[13] This is extremely odd and has prompted heraldic specialists to assert ineptitude on the part of its designer.[14] It suggests something is amiss. Could the strange rule bending circumstances surrounding Pope Benedict XVI’s retirement suggest he is the uncannonical pope that St. Francis prophesied? (it looks the this malformed coat of arms has been quickly revised, so copy those images for safekeeping).

Wikipedia now has a corrected version:

Corrected Coat of Arms 2013

Apocalyptic Franciscan prophecies and heraldic guffaws aside, many have overlooked another Catholic Saint he could have drawn the papal name from: St. Francis Xavier, a fellow Jesuit infamous for inspiring the Goa inquisition. This extended the European inquisition to the Indian state of Goa and the Portuguese empire in Asia, a repugnant affair in which some 16,202 persons were brought to trial resulting in untold numbers of executions by burning at the stake amongst lesser tortures.[15]

While we don’t normally put a lot of stock in numerology, the great biblical scholar and Anglican theologian E.W. Bullinger wrote an exhaustive treatise in the 19th century which has yielded some interesting connections to the new Pontiff. The numbers surrounding Pope Francis’ election keep coming up thirteen. White smoke at 7:06 PM which in numerology 7 + 6 = 13 and he is 76 years old 7 + 6 = 13 and then he was elected on the calendar date 3/13/13 which sports two 13s of its own but in numerology 3/13/2013 also yields 3+1+3+2+0+1+3=13 and he was announced at precisely 8:13 PM Vatican time or in military and European time 20:13 making for 3/13/2013 at 20:13. According to Bullinger:

As to the significance of thirteen, all are aware that it has come down to us as a number of ill-omen. Many superstitions cluster around it, and various explanations are current concerning them.

Unfortunately, those who go backwards to find a reason seldom go back far enough. The popular explanations do not, so far as we are aware, go further back than the Apostles. But we must go back to the first occurrence of the number thirteen in order to discover the key to its significance. It occurs first in Genesis 14:4, where we read “Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and the thirteenth year they REBELLED.”

Hence every occurrence of the number thirteen, and likewise of every multiple of it, stamps that with which it stands in connection with rebellion, apostasy, defection, corruption, disintegration, revolution, or some kindred idea.[16]

This ill omen suggests the “many tribulations” of the Malachy prophecy could coincide with the apostasy of 2 Thes. 2:3 but Bullinger goes on to cite an exhaustive list of thirteens and factors of thirteen including examples like:

Satan, in Hebrew = 364 (13 x 28) ??????

Satan, in Greek = 2197 (133) “That old serpent, even Satan” (? ???? ? ???????… ??? ? ???????) 2756 (13 x 212)

“According to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air” = 9178181 (13 x 706)

“The power of the air” = 2600 (13 x 200) [17]

While we could go on and on (Bullinger does) with a long list of similar demonic thirteens, one verse in particular is pertinent:

Revelation 13:11, The whole verse = 6318 (13×486)

?????? (theerion), beast = 247 (13×19)

???? ?????? (hallo theerion), another beast = 378 (9×42)

“He had two horns” = 1521 (132×9)

“And he had two horns like a lamb” = 2704 (132×16) [18]

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” (Revelation 13:11, AV)

Do all of these thirteens add up to a coincidence? That’s up to you decide. But the biblical prophecy alone points toward the papacy. Indeed this second beast is predicted to be viewed “like a lamb” and the accolades expressed on 3/13/2013 at 20:13 support that perception. This probably seems mean spirited to some but as protestants we feel well within our rights to assert that all claimants to Vicar “instead ”of Christ as false prophets.[19] However, if the predictions of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Malachy are truly at their culmination, then the second beast, the one from the earth, who is called the “false prophet” (Rev. 16:13; 19:20; 20:10) or Petrus Romanus who will lead the world to worship the dragon, has arrived in Pope Francis but I am not a prophet… only time will tell.

“I Saw an American City Attacked! – Destruction from the Sky!” A Prophetic Dream


Alert Warning #6 from Nathan Leal
“I Saw an American City Attacked! – Destruction from the Sky!”
A Prophetic Dream
Nathan Leal – March 8, 2013

——————————————————————————————————–

In the beginning of 2013, I sought God about the matters at hand. I had been asking Him to show me the things to come.

On the night of February 19, 2013, the Lord answered my prayer and gave me a glimpse of things to come through a prophetic dream. After praying about it and seeking Him, He has given me the clearance to share it so that I can warn the people.

(Note – The Timing of the Following Dream is Unknown.)

Dream Begins:

I was in a building looking out of a window with other people that I did not know. When the dream first began, I did not know where I was. But as the dream progressed, images began to appear before me.

The sky became filled with very dark clouds of the evening. The clouds resembled those of an impending thunderstorm. They were dark and very thick. From time to time, lightning flashed within them.

After a few moments, the skyline of Seattle, Washington appeared before me. I could see all of the downtown buildings of the city and beyond. I also noticed that I was at a high vantage point. I was at a location in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, east of Seattle.

This meant that I was looking west towards Seattle and the Pacific Ocean. I could see all of the downtown area, as well as the landscape to the south and the north. I could also see the waters of Puget Sound located beyond downtown Seattle.

Unexpectedly, chaos erupted! The sky became darker.

From the south of downtown, I saw a glowing fireball coming out of the sky. It approached at an angle in slow motion.

I could see that it was not aiming towards the downtown area, but was headed beyond the location south of downtown and across the waters of Puget Sound.

Suddenly, missiles from the ground began to launch towards the approaching threat. I saw five to six missiles go into the sky towards the attacking fireball.

As I watched them launch, I was not sure what kind of missiles they were but I wondered to myself “Patriot Missiles?”

As they launched, the missiles also traveled in slow motion. But unfortunately, they missed and flew past the target! I remembered thinking, “Oh no! They missed!”

In the continuing chaos, a craft flew past me and also went towards the falling threat. The flying craft looked like some sort of drone or odd looking missile. It had narrow wings and was white and blue.

Suddenly, to the north of the downtown buildings, an explosion occurred in the sky. The blast was very high. It seemed to explode across the waters of the Puget Sound.

It appeared to occur several miles away from the city center. It did not explode into a mushroom cloud. Instead it exploded into a ball that became very bright and large. The ball remained a sphere as it expanded.

The explosion was so bright that I had to duck and look away.

After a moment of waiting, I again looked out of the window and saw the flash dissipating. As it started fading I said, “That was an EMP!”

I was wondering when the blast would reach me but it never did. I guess that as an observer in the dream. I was protected.

As I examined the post traumatic landscape, I was shocked by what I saw.

Every building before me in downtown Seattle had its windows blown out. Many were damaged but many were still standing. Pillars of smoke rose throughout, from the streets below. Dust was everywhere.

I became very sad. I do not know how many people were hurt in this event.

After I woke up, I was very disturbed. I needed to find answers.

I went online to look at the Seattle landscape on Google maps. Based on what I saw in my dream, I was able to find my approximate location. I was also able to calculate an approximation of where the objects were headed and/or exploded.

When I examined the points of impact, this glimpse became very DISTURBING!

It appears that west of Seattle across the Puget Sound are several military bases and installations.

The area of the lower assault is the Bremerton Naval Base and Shipyard.

The image above is from Google where we can see that many of our ships are there. Below is a “zoomed- in” close up of the area where I saw the anti-missiles try to respond but miss. I do not understand why they missed! I thought that we had an impregnable shield. (More on that later.)

In my dream, in the other area North of Bremerton, I saw an explosion in the air.

The area in the image below was under the explosion! It turns out that it is also a military base, a substantial one!


From Wikipedia: It is called Naval Base Kitsap. It is a U.S. Navy base located on the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington State. It was created in 2004 by merging the former Naval Station Bremerton with Naval Submarine Base Bangor.

The Mission of Naval Base Kitsap is to serve as the home base for the Navy’s fleet throughout West Puget Sound and to provide base operating services, including support for both surface ships and Fleet Ballistic.

In my dream the explosion in the air occurred over this base!!!


What Was It?

After I had this dream, I wondered if the flying objects were nuclear missiles or meteors.

I prayed and asked God for details and more information. At this moment in time, I do not have an answer.

Therefore, I am not sure what they were. I have many questions about this event.

If they were meteors, why would they attack two military bases? And could a meteor cause an EMP?

Was the first one a meteor? And was the second one that exploded in the air a “Tactical EMP Missile” of some sort?

I am still seeking God for answers. One thing I have learned about prophetic dreams. They are just glimpses, partial images. They are never a complete picture. We only “know in part” and “prophesy in part.”

But folks, I do know this, God did tell me to share this dream. He wants all people to be warned that events are coming that will test men’s hearts!

America will experience an attack. This dream event will be one of several cities that will experience these things.

For those of you that are wondering – “When?”

God Revealed that it will occur when people least expect it. Will it be soon? Or later? Will it happen within months or years from now? That part I do not know.

Why?

Over the past few months, I have been sharing many details about America’s coming demise. The things that she is experiencing right now are a part of God’s Divine Judgment.

America is NOT in a recovery! Her dismantling is still in motion. Thus far, most of her pain has been in the economic sector, but eventually, she will start to experience a new category of judgment. ….WAR!!!

As these things take place, God has also shown me in prophetic dreams that America will be attacked in a very ominous and destructive manner. This means that several American cities will see great destruction. American cities WILL BURN!

Ladies and Gentlemen, over the past few years, I have seen cities burning through prophetic glimpses! Sharing these things brings no pleasure!

It brings much pain!

In my early years, I never thought that America could ever get attacked! But this was before God showed me.

The Withering Hedge!

America’s Divine hedge of protection has been removed. Her walls of solitude and safety have crumbled. Her pillars of strength have fractured and toppled.

As a result, right now, America is in very dangerous territory.

Without God protecting her, how can she remain safe and preserved?

The majority of today’s Americans place no confidence in God. They do not see the point. So sadly, America will be left as a progressive thistle blowing in the wind.

The ungodly take pride in their leanings to the left. But folks, at what point will her dry stalk break? How far can she lean before she tumbles?

Her bones have become dry and fallow; a brittle soul in the wilderness. Will the world give her a drink? Or are they waiting to watch her die of thirst?

Grass always fades and America will soon learn the fate of her misleading self-reliance.

Folks, if you live within the borders of America and you do not know why the USA is sick, please seek to find an understanding of why she is going through this. The reason is NOT only a physical reason from the mind of logic and rational.

My last audio went into great detail about America’s declining hedge of protection. The message includes a sermon of spiritual challenge.

I encourage all of you to listen to it. It explains through the scriptures what the pillars are. It is in two parts. Please share it with your loved ones that you are trying to warn.

Link – News from the Wall 13 page

Finding Strength

Ladies and gentlemen, in the coming days, we all need to be getting our hearts strengthened in God.

I have been seeking God about which direction to go in future messages. I have many things to share but I am also seeing that there are many people that are not where they need to be spiritually.

Unfortunately, most people do not know what to do when it comes to seeking God and getting close to Jesus.

Therefore, I am going to be producing several sermon messages that will address how to come back to God. I know that there are many out there in internet land that are backslidden and struggling.

If this may be you, my heart goes out for you. Please do not give up. If you are not a subscriber to my audio messages, please do so, so that you can be notified when my sermons come out. Subscribe to notifications

I want all of you to know that even though we are living at the edge of coming “doom,” there is still hope for you. God has a plan for you and He wants to get to know you better. It just takes your desire to see that happen.

For those of you who might live in the Seattle area, you may be wondering, “What to do?”

I asked God about that. He said, “Those that need to move away, are being shown what to do.”

In other words, if you are asking Him, He will tell you what to do.

Unfortunately, God also told me that most people do not listen to His voice when it comes to these things. Again, I do not have the timing for this event. It could be years away.

As a reminder, both David Wilkerson and Dumitru Duduman saw America burning in prophetic visions. They saw these things MANY years ago! God’s warning is always in advance; sometimes many years in advance. So will this attack happen soon? I do not know. Therefore, please follow the leading of the Holy Spirit for your personal relocation plans.

One thing to note about the explosion that I saw, it did not appear to be a regular nuclear event. It appeared to be an EMP. So here is the question. If you live in a city, can you ride out an EMP event? Only you can answer that question.

But the question cannot be addressed without wisdom and sobriety of heart. Neither can it be answered without God’s counsel and Holy Spirit leading.

My friends, we need to all be staying vigilant in these uncertain times. Great events are approaching. The wise ones will stay sheltered in God and seek to know what to do.

One thing you should not do is try to deal with these things without God’s involvement. To do this will result in walking in fear!

And folks, fear is a faith killer and a thief of God’s peace! May God grant you your portion of peace in the midst of this storm!

Comment from an email that brings confirmation to Nathan’s Dream:

Received Friday – March 9, 2013

Nathan,

I just received an email regarding your dream, Alert Warning #6 – “I Saw an American City Attacked! – Destruction from the Sky!” and I was floored considering I had a very similar dream back on 5 September 2012. (184 days ago)

The huge ball/flash I saw was south to roughly SSE outside and above my bedroom window.

I tell you truly, (out of Godly fear) this is what I recalled seeing in a dream that morning.
Blessings unto you in Jesus Name, R.

Dream Begins: —————————————–

5 September 2012

I live just north of Penn Cove, south of central Oak Harbor on the north end of Whidbey Island in Puget Sound and I had a very realistic dream this morning just after 0400 A.M.

The dream began with a huge flash from a ball of light (at about 45-60 degrees above the horizon basically south of where I live) that looked like the sun but was about fifty percent larger.

It lit up everything in my bedroom and was immediately followed by the sound of a ponderously loud clap-like explosion; immediately after, I found myself standing by my bed and I yelled out, ‘WOW’!

I hurredly walked to my open kitchen area and stopped between the kitchen and livingroom and tried to gather my thoughts of what had just happened and once again I said, ‘Wow’. I knew right away what had to have just happened (a nuclear blast), so I turned and walked to my south-facing kitchen window and looked out.

The whole area was scorched black, no trees, no houses, no cars, no people, just burned black devastation. The sky was still lit just enough to see that it was full of black smoke and ash and the faint orange glow several places along the horizon that must have been fires.

I also saw huge smoking streamers falling everywhere out of the sky towards the ground which looked eerily similar to the CGI effects used in the movie scene in ‘2012’ after the Yellowstone caldera exploded.

I could see the air concussion wave off in the distance headed our way, so I turned away from the window while walking away from it I yelled, ‘Air burst, get down now!…get down now!’ and then I awoke.

I don’t ever recall having a dream like this before in my whole life, but it makes sense. Since moving back to the island in 2009, I have felt like this would be the likely scenario for the Puget Sound area at some point.

With a large viable cargo port, sub base, Joint Base Lewis McCord (combined airforce and army bases which I read somewhere houses a significant nuclear stockpile), Bremerton Naval Shipyard, home to a number of naval fleet refit operations, Everett Naval Base home of two aircraft carriers and NAS Whidbey and of course, Boeing’s massive facilities in Everett, South Seattle and Auburn, plus Microsoft, etc. No doubt this area has long been a top ten Russian nuclear target. I’m not frightened by the prospect of it because perfect Love casts out fear and I am reconciled with Abba through the shed blood of Yeshua – Jesus who is blessed forevermore.

God Bless you in Jesus Name, R.

Nathan’s Comment: I find this dream incredible because it points to the same area of explosion. Oak Harbor is north of the Naval Base Kitsap where I saw the explosion occur in the air.

Chinese General: Prepare for Combat


Chinese General: Prepare for Combat

Custom Search

BY: Bill Gertz

China’s most powerful military leader, in an unusual public statement, last week ordered military forces to prepare for combat, as Chinese warships deployed to waters near disputed islands and anti-Japan protests throughout the country turned violent.

Protests against the Japanese government’s purchase of three privately held islands in the Senkakus chain led to mass street protests, the burning of Japanese flags, and attacks on Japanese businesses and cars in several cities. Some carried signs that read “Kill all Japanese,” and “Fight to the Death” over disputed islands. One sign urged China to threaten a nuclear strike against Japan.

Gen. Xu Caihou, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, considered the most senior military political commissar, said Friday that military forces should be “prepared for any possible military combat,” state run Xinhua news agency reported.

Heightened tensions over the Senkakus come as Defense Secretary Leon Panetta arrived in China Monday.

Panetta, in comments made in Japan shortly before traveling to China, said, “We are concerned by the demonstrations, and we are concerned by the conflict that is taking place over the Senkaku islands.”

“The message I have tried to convey is we have to urge calm and restraint on all sides,” he said, noting any “provocation” could produce a “blow up.”

Panetta repeated the U.S. position that it is neutral in the dispute over Japan’s Senkaku islands, a small chain of islets located south of Okinawa and north of Taiwan. But he also reaffirmed the U.S. defense commitment to Japan, a treaty ally.

“We stand by our treaty obligations,” Panetta said, echoing a similar commitment made during a 2010 standoff between Beijing and Tokyo over the Senkakus. ”They’re longstanding, and that has not changed.”

China claims the islands as its territory and calls them the Diaoyu islands.

Last week, following the Japanese government’s purchase of three of the Senkakus from private Japanese owners, six Chinese maritime security ships were deployed near the Senkaku islands, further heightening tensions.

Xu’s unusual comments followed reports in state-controlled Chinese media that opposed the Japanese government’s purchase of the three islands.

Xu said during a visit to military units near Taiyuan, in the northern province of Shanxi, “efforts should be made to ensure that the military is capable of resolutely performing its duty to safeguard the country’s national sovereignty, security, and territorial integrity whenever it is needed by the Party and the people.”

A U.S. official said the PLA’s most senior political general rarely makes such direct appeals to troops to prepare for combat.

Panetta told reporters en route to Japan, the first stop on a three-nation visit to Asia, “The United States does not take a position with regards to territorial disputes.”

In 2010, then-Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates invoked the U.S.-Japan defense treaty when tensions between China and Japan increased over Tokyo’s arrest of a Chinese fishing captain who rammed his boat against a Japanese coast guard vessel in waters near the Senkakus. Gates said the United States would “fulfill our alliance responsibilities” toward Japan.

Japan’s Coast Guard announced on Sept. 14 that six Chinese maritime patrol vessels sailed into Japanese-controlled waters near the Senkakus and the vessels ignored Japanese warnings for the ships to leave the area.

Other reports from China on Monday showed a convoy of hundreds of Chinese fishing vessels sailing toward the disputed islands.

The six Chinese ships entered Japanese waters near the island on Friday, and ignored Japanese coast guard orders for them to vacate what it said was its territorial waters.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry confirmed that six of its surveillance ships had entered the waters near the islands.

China’s aggressiveness in maritime disputes has garnered little attention in the presidential election campaign.

On Monday, President Obama criticized GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his attack on the administration for being soft on China through its weak response to China’s trade and currency policies.

The Chinese maritime warships near the Senkakus were reported last week by Xinhua as “routine patrols” near the islands to “assert the country’s sovereignty and protect fishermen.”

“The Diaoyou Islands and their affiliated islets have been China’s inherent territory since ancient times, and their surrounding waters are China’s traditional fishing ground,” the report said.

A classified Chinese government map from 1969 that was obtained by Japan’s government shows Beijing had labeled the islands as “Senkaku,” their Japanese name, and thus confirmed their control by Tokyo. The map, which was viewed by the Free Beacon, also had a dividing line south of the islands showing that they fall within Japanese territory.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said during a hearing last week that China’s behavior toward regional states was tantamount to bullying.

“While the world’s attention was turned to other crises, including Iran’s nuclear program and concerns over the faltering Euro, China has upped the ante, playing the role of a schoolyard bully towards its maritime neighbors,” Ros-Lehtinen said.

“From one end to the other of the South China Sea, Beijing has increased both in belligerence and bellicosity.”

Ros-Lehtinen said the United States, through the Navy, will stand by friends and allies in the region.

The Florida Republican said China is seeking to control the South China Sea and other coastal waters and sealanes because they are “central to the Chinese communist mandarins’ aspirations to re-establish the Middle Kingdom as the dominant power in Asia.”

“Whoever controls these sea lanes can dominate Asia—and beyond—by choking off that commerce and oil shipments to the major stakeholders in the Asian economic miracle,” she said.

Chinese efforts to dominate the western Pacific are increasing the possibility of naval clashes, Ros-Lehtinen said.

“Other global crises must not distract from our vital national interests in the South China Sea and the western Pacific,” she said during a hearing.

Breakthrough: Electronic circuits that are integrated with your skin

Breakthrough: Electronic circuits that are integrated with your skin

A team of engineers today announced a discovery that could change the world of electronics forever. Called an “epidermal electronic system” (EES), it’s basically an electronic circuit mounted on your skin, designed to stretch, flex, and twist — and to take input from the movements of your body.

EES is a leap forward for wearable technologies, and has potential applications ranging from medical diagnostics to video game control and accelerated wound-healing. Engineers John Rogers and Todd Coleman, who worked on the discovery, tell io9 it’s a huge step towards erasing the divide that separates machine and human.

Coleman and Rogers say they developed EES to forego the hard and rigid electronic “wafer” format of traditional electronics in favor of a softer, more dynamic platform.

To accomplish this, their team brought together scientists from several labs to develop “filamentary serpentine” (threadlike and squiggly) circuitry. When this circuitry is mounted on a thin, rubber substrate with elastic properties similar to skin, the result is a flexible patch that can bend and twist, or expand and contract, all without affecting electronic performance.

This video demonstrates the resilience of the EES patch, and how easily it can be applied. The patch (comprised of the circuitry and rubber substrate) is first mounted on a thin sheet of water-soluble plastic, then applied to the skin with water like a temporary tattoo.


How Will We Wear Our Second Skin?

So what can an EES really do for us? The short answer is: a lot. In the paper describing their new technology, published in this week’s issue of Science, the researchers illustrated the adaptability of their concept by demonstrating functionality in a wide array of electronic components, including biometric sensors, LEDs, transistors, radio frequency capacitors, wireless antennas, and even conductive coils and solar cells for power.

Breakthrough: Electronic circuits that are integrated with your skinWe asked Rogers what he thought were the most promising applications for the new technology. He said medicine was the most compelling:

Our paper demonstrates our ability to monitor ECG (as a monitor of heart disease and metabolism), EMG (as a measure of, among other things, gait during walking) and EEG (as a measure of cognitive state and awareness).

We have also shown that these same devices can stimulate muscle tissue to induce contractions. When combined with sensing/monitoring, such modes of use could be valuable in physical rehabilitation. We also have interest in sleep monitoring (for sleep apnea), and neo-natal care (monitoring premature babies, in particular).

According to Rogers, the electronic skin has already been shown to monitor patients’ health measurements as effectively as conventional state-of-the-art electrodes that require bulky pads, straps, and irritating adhesive gels. “The fidelity of the measurement is equal to the best existing technology that is out there today, but in a very unique skin-like form,” he explained.

Breakthrough: Electronic circuits that are integrated with your skin. What’s more, the electronic skin’s unique properties allow it to do things that existing biometric sensors simply can’t touch. Todd Coleman, who co-led the project with Rogers, told io9 how an EES could be applied to a person’s throat to serve as a communication aid:

Within the realm of biomedical applications, one can imagine providing benefits to patients with muscular or neurological disorders like ALS. For example, in the Science article, our research group used the device…to control a computer strategy game with muscles in the throat by speaking the commands.

In principle, the same function could have been achieved by simply mouthing commands rather than speaking them out loud. As such, this capability could be provided to ALS patients so that they could “speak” through an epidermal electronics system that is un-noticeable to them, and invisible to other observers.


Outside the context of biomedicine, the EES’s inconspicuous nature opens up a whole world of possibilities. The patches are already barely noticeable, but when mounted directly onto a temporary tattoo, for example, any evidence of electronic circuitry disappears. Coleman said:

[This technology] provides a huge conceptual advance in wedding the biological world to the cyber world in a manner that is very natural. In some sense, the boundary between the electronics world and the biological world is becoming increasingly amorphous. The ramifications of this are mind-blowing, to say the least.

I envision endless applications that extend beyond biomedical applications. For example, we could use the exact same technology – and specifically its discrete tattoo-like appearance – to perform covert military operations where an agent could communicate to the command station with these electric signals without ever speaking a word.

Coleman’s statement touches on what is perhaps this most important thing about today’s announcement, namely the precedent it sets for future technologies that aim to combine the organismal with the synthetic.

“The blurring of electronics and biology is really the key point here,” said Northwestern University’s Yonggang Huang, with whom Rogers and Coleman collaborated. “All established forms of electronics are hard, rigid. Biology is soft, elastic. It’s two different worlds. This is a way to truly integrate them.”

Looking to the future, Rogers echoes his colleague’s sentiments. Describing what he envisions for his research group in the coming years, he said:

We would like to expand the functionality such that the devices not only seamlessly integrate with the human body in a mechanical sense, but that they also communicate and interact with the tissue in modes that go beyond electrons and photons (the ‘currency’ of semiconductor device technologies), to the level of fluids and biomolecules (i.e. the ‘currency’ of biology). We are hoping, in this way, to blur the distinction between electronics and the human body, in ways that can advance human health.

Rogers and Coleman’s research is published in tomorrow’s issue of Science and is also available online.

‘Tarantulas’ invade Assam town, ‘kill’ two

‘Tarantulas’ invade Assam town, ‘kill’ two

Jintu Gogoi’s neighbourhood in Sadiya, Upper Assam, is no longer friendly. Over two weeks ago, an army of eight-legged freaks invaded it. It all happened in the evening on May 8. Most of the inhabitants of Chaulkhowa Nagaon village had been to a Bihu function. When the programme drew to a close, swarms of spiders suddenly descended from nowhere and started biting the people. The festive mood soon turned into one of panic with people bumping into each other and tripping over empty benches in their frantic bid to egress. Jintu was bitten by one of these critters.

It all sounded like a scene from a Hollywood horror flick, but as Jintu showed his blackened, swollen finger, to TOI, it became clear that it was not some elaborate hoax created by some mischief-monger, it was something that happened for real. But the panic it triggered could have been certainly avoided had there been enough awareness among laymen and mandarins about arachnids.

Jintu spent a day at the Sadiya Civil Hospital after he complained of excruciating pain and nausea. When he returned home, he had more terrifying stories to tell. Terror was still writ large on his face even two weeks after the incident, but he thanked his stars for being alive. His neighbour,

Purnakanta Buragohain, was not that lucky. He died in the hospital after a spider allegedly bit him.

The events that unfolded in the next few days left everyone baffled. Scores of people arrived in the Sadiya civil hospital with spider bites, some even carrying their tormentors to the hospital. Amid all this, another person, this time a schoolboy, died of an alleged spider bite. And the district administration panicked. They sounded an alert across Tinsukia district and asked people to stay indoors at night-the time the unknown critters would swarm all over the place. They talked about fogging the place with DDT to kill the arachnids but couldn’t find any effective solution. What’s worse: they even let the two bodies to be cremated without conducting any autopsy. Yet the spider menace continued. None had any answer as to what kind of a spider it was and how it made such a sudden appearance.

Then on May 22, a team of life scientists from Dibrugarh University and Gauhati University arrived in Sadiya. Led by Dr L R Saikia, head, Department of Life Sciences, Dibrugarh University, the team camped in the trouble spot for two days and nights and collected specimens. “As of now, we cannot give a specific name. It’s similar to the tarantula, but it could be a whole new species. There aren’t any arachnologists in the northeast, so it will take us a while to identify it. But whatever the species, it is a highly aggressive spider. It leaps at anything that comes close. Some of the victims claimed the spider latched onto them after biting. If that is so, it needs to be dealt with carefully. The chelicerae and fangs of this critter are quite powerful; but it’s too early to declare it a killer spider. In fact, we are yet to test its venom and find out the toxicity,” says Dr Saikia.

“We cannot say for sure that the fatalities were due to the venom; it could have been because of allergic reaction to the venom, which triggered cardiac arrest in both the victims. But all the bite patients first went to witch doctors, who cut open their wounds with razors, drained out blood and burnt it. That could have also made them sick. Also, we didn’t administer any antivenin dose, as we were not sure if the spider was venomous,” says Dr Anil Phatowali, superintendent, Sadiya Civil Hospital.

He adds that the hospital is ill-equipped to handle crises due to manpower crunch, erratic power supply and equipment shortage.

Dr Ratul Rajkhowa of the zoology department of Cotton College, Guwahati, has seen the spider. In fact, one of the dead creatures has been preserved in the department laboratory. He echoes Dr Saikia’s views but says it’s too early to call it a tarantula. “It could be the black wishbone or a species related to it. Or may be a species related to the funnel-web spider.

Whatever it is, it is definitely new to the area. Assam doesn’t have venomous spiders, it never had any throughout history, or there would have been some document, text or art that depicted this spider. People wouldn’t have panicked like this; they are scared because they have seen something like this for the first time and don’t know how to deal with it. They are used to the common house spider, which runs away when you even snap your finger close to it. But this spider attacks if you try to scare it off. Those who were bitten have said that when they tried to shoo it off, it leapt at them and buried its fangs.”

If the spider is indeed the black wishbone, which is found in Australia, how did it come all the way to Assam? Or, if it is the funnel-web spider, how did it suddenly appear at a place that is not its usual habitat? These questions have baffled experts. “There is a lot of insect fauna that is still to be discovered. Therefore, this could be a big find. However, what is worrying is the way these arachnids surfaced all of a sudden and started biting everyone around. Its behaviour shows that it is not used to human presence; so, there is some ground to believe that this may have been accidentally or intentionally introduced to our eco-system.

Usually, animals and insects behave differently if they are introduced to a different habitat; many show an aggressive strain, especially after they have mated with local species. The hybrid ones become stronger and more aggressive. For instance, the Africanized bee or the ‘killer bee’, which resulted after 26 Tanzanian queen bees escaped from an apiary in Brazil and mated with local bees, was a hybrid species that also killed 1,000 people in Brazil alone. Today, it has reached up to central United States,” says an entomologist on condition of anonymity.

He adds, “Sadiya is not alien to terror. The place was notorious for human sacrifice until the mid-19th century when the British stopped this barbaric practice. The place also suffered immensely during the 1897 and 1950 earthquakes. Then came insurgency. There were brutal gun battles in Dibru-Saikhowa National Park a few years ago between the Army and insurgents. Recently, four suspected Maoists were gunned down here. People so used to terror will not panic because of spiders unless there is something really scary about it. The government should delve into this issue and find out how these arachnids arrived here. Instead, they are doing blunder after blunder.”

On May 28, the spider allegedly appeared in Nalbari, Lower Assam-a good 600 km away from Sadiya-and bit a woman. The woman not only trapped the spider, she was also sane enough to come to a hospital instead of visiting a witch doctor. When TOI contacted the deputy commissioner, Lalit Gogoi, on May 31, he informed that the woman took the spider back home after treatment. It didn’t occur to the babus that the specimen should have been retained and sent for lab testing.

One thing that is unexplained is how the black spider appeared in swarms. “A certain anomaly in conditions may provoke an unusual surge in breeding populations. Swarms of spiders are rare, although they have been reported, usually after flooding when the spiders search for dry and higher ground,” says British naturalist Dr Vejay K Singh, popularly known as Dr Venom. He has heard about the spider menace and says he would like to come down and check the spider himself.

TOI had showed him an image of the spider, to which he responded: “This is indeed a theraphosid spider or more commonly called tarantula. Most likely from the genus selenocosmia or lyrognathus, but more probably the former. The spiders are nocturnal, which explains why the attacks took place at night. The selenocosmia are aggressive spiders and will bite readily when provoked. However, they are not a social spider like the poecilotheria (tree spiders) which occur in south India and Sri Lanka. So a suggestion of swarms is puzzling. Perhaps, it is more likely to be a freak case of a population sprawl in the area. And although aggressive by nature, these spiders are not considered dangerous with regards to toxicity, and are unlikely to cause a fatal bite in a healthy individual.”

Dibrugarh University has, meanwhile, sent spider specimens to Indian Society of Arachnology, Maharashtra, for identification. Their report pending and without any spider specialist visiting the region, the truth about the mysterious spider attacks in Assam continues to be covered by a cobweb.

Wondering Why the End May Actually Really, Honestly “Be Near?”

Wondering Why the End May Actually Really, Honestly “Be Near?”

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

One problem we are all ignoring, while we are told to worry about Iranian nukes that do not now nor never will exist, is that the money in your pocket is toilet paper, your home is worth less than yesterday and probably belongs to someone who lost the paperwork and has been bankrupt themselves for 30 years.

This is the news, one bleak moment after another diffused with smut, girlie shots, fashions, Zuckerberg, hero yesterday, villain today, all of it useless, purposefully lies, a distraction and, even more correctly, carefully engineered mind control.

If only I were kidding.

I am going to make a series of disclosures today. The reason is simple, the public has the right to know.

As a grabber, I will pick a military subject. This one is critical and two phased.

Control of the air is the basis for American military power, without that, our aircraft carriers, our troops in the field are “sitting ducks.”

Currently, weapons systems we are supposed to have “up and working,” the basis for our last decade of development is in shambles and we are keeping this from the public.

Three primary systems are in meltdown:

The F 35 Joint Strike Fighter, meant to be sold to our allies and the basis of our air power for the next 4 decades, not only has unrepairable defects in avionics but is really “4th generation,” not “5th generation. We spent $1.3 trillion dollars for a “flying garbage truck” that is years late and highly susceptible to, not only air defense systems but can be outmaneuvered by 30 year old planes. This is, currently, the biggest defense scam in American history. A look at John McCain, the man responsible for leaving America open to foreign attack, not for the first time, will follow.
The F 22, a real 5th generation fighter, available in minimal numbers as it was “killed” by John McCain for reasons that would make your blood boil, is poisoning its pilots. A temporary refit, midnight “spit and glue” will take two years. This plane was 15 years in development.
Mysteriously, the Chinese have their own F 22, slightly altered but so many identical systems that it contains over $500 billion dollars of American technology, the J 20. It is ready for production and it will work, where ours don’t. Information on the illegal technology transfer, done through “that special country in the Middle East” is suppressed in our news. Spying. This represents a “clear and present danger” to the security of the United States.
The Patriot 3 missile system simply doesn’t work. The basis for our “surround Russia and pretend we are trying to scare Iran” air defense system, combined with the “Iron Dome” for Israel is a dream. Tests of the system done a few months ago proved it incapable of shooting anything down other than, just maybe, one of our own F 35s. The export (degraded) version of the Russian S400 system (Turkey is buying one) is superior. Should we ask Russia if we could simply buy their system and surround them with that? Actually, we need a joint system WITH Russia and need it today. We should buy rights to produce, not the export version, but the advanced domestic version and sign a treaty as to how we will use it. This is the security of the United States we are talking about.
In addition, our “parts inventory” is infected with counterfeit circuit boards, not just these three systems but for everything including air to air missiles, all of which have software that can be “pulse” upgraded with worms or trojans. The culprits? Guess.
General Dempsey has found it necessary to order retraining of Americas officer corps. Why? Two things were taught, it seems, hatred and how to lose. Afghanistan is a tale of a military whose leadership spent too much time on its knees with its eyes closed. Check out the film below:

Less “sexy” is the diamond scandal raised by renowned expert Baron Riccardo Baretzky. The Baron developed a technology through a company called Dialab that could detect the new and highly secret synthetic diamonds, not CZ, but clones and the newer “grown” diamonds, undetectable by any system used anywhere in the world.

Other than half the people in the world owning a diamond, investment diamonds make up a good percentage of the world’s wealth, underwrite many key investment funds and have been suggested as the backing for a series of new world currencies.

Now we have hard proof that diamonds leaving Tel Aviv and Amsterdam have been phonies, endless billions of dollars of fraudulent diamonds. Now that Baretzky has gone public in a series of interviews, those who manage the world diamond business are in a panic. Here is part of their “CYA” press release:

WFDB RECOMMENDS VIGILANCE AFTER UNDISCLOSED SYNTHETICS ALERT

Antwerp : May 21, 2012- World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) President Avi Paz has stressed his commitment to facilitate the full identification of synthetic diamonds and their disclosure, following a recent alert by DTC and diamond grading laboratory IGI.

Last week, IGI and DTC issued alerts to the diamond community, informing them of undisclosed submissions of colourless to near-colourless CVD synthetic diamonds with the clear aim to have these lab-grown diamonds certified as natural diamonds.

Avi Paz stressed that the WFDB specifically requires its members to identify synthetics and disclose any treatments used on diamonds: “Our affiliated bourses are making every effort to inform their membership of the latest developments in this sensitive area.”

The world diamond bourses have established clear rules regarding the trading in misrepresented or undisclosed products, whether inadvertently or not. Any violation of these rules are referred to the Bourse for disciplinary action and can be grounds for suspension, expulsion, fine or other appropriate disciplinary measure. “Our members are fully aware of their responsibility to protect the integrity of the diamond trade. Our structure is such that we cannot tolerate any misuse of the reputation of our business. These recent events emphasize the importance of buying from sources that can be trusted.

Back in 2010, the Diamond and Jewelry Federation of South Africa knew about this and tried to silence Baretzky. Here is the proof:

The Diamond and Jewelry Federation of South Africa (DJFSA), which represents the diamond and jewelry industries and whose members include the Diamond Dealers Club of South Africa (DDCSA), the Diamond Council of South Africa (DCSA) and the jewelry Council of South Africa (JCSA), wishes to comment on an article published on News24 on May 24, titled ‘Diamond DNA to fight fraud’, and on a subsequent article published in Mining Weekly on June 4, titled ‘Diamond fingerprinting to revolutionise the market’.

Our main concern is the comments attributed to Baron Baretzky and the effects they may have on consumer confidence, as not every consumer may be knowledgeable about the scientific processes followed in diamond evaluation and certification. The information supplied by the spokesperson of Dialab may be described as misleading spokesperson of Dialab may be described as misleading.

http://www.miningweekly.com/article/diamond-fingerprinting-to-revolutionise-market-2010-06-04

Note the use of “may be described as misleading” in the text. We call such claims “weasel words.” Describe by “whom?” “May?” I can describe the Diamond and Jewelry Federation and the quality of their statement as somewhat less credible than “my dog ate my homework” or “I forgot to close the barn door, blamed the wrong person and am now caught, two years later, with my pants down.”

You thought the currency problem was bad? Only a few dozen people know how much of the world’s wealth is based on diamonds, actually much more than on gold, so much more you can’t imagine.

Now we find much of it is utterly worthless and we know exactly who is responsible, how many endless billions (or more) they have bilked the world out of and have caught them “red handed.”

So, we have another industry that fits in with “big pharma,” the peddlers of broken weapons, better known as the “military industrial complex” along with insurance, mortgage, banking and investment, the real heart of world organized crime.

We don’t even discuss the half trillion dollar narcotics business, protected by the US and military and intelligence agencies, its money laundered through top investment firms and banks and its penetration of even state and local governments as far north as the Canadian border and actually into Canada itself.

Another issue of disclosure is the mind control rhetoric being used to predispose Americans for a fraudulent election.

Let me be very clear on the issue of the world economy. What happened in the US, deregulation of financial crimes, fantasy currencies and stocks traded as real and an end to any taxation of the powerful and influential ended with the beginning of the War on Terror.

Coincidence?

It was a worldwide fraud that has bankrupted all but a dozen nations, all others are insolvent and all “value,” call it “collateral” or “equity” or whatever, all wealth has disappeared into a multi-national “cloud” of conspiracy.

All of the world’s material wealth has been retranslated into debt and “extrapolated” into an exponential or “derivative” encumberment, where a billion dollars of stock or bond equity soon became a trillion dollars of interest earning debt, something into, not just nothing but “negative nothing,” as though the world had gone on a massive credit card spending spree and come home only to bills but with none of the useless goods.

This is the reality of economics nobody is telling you.

Romney and “Bain” are exactly this, offshore money, invisible owners, non-existent money in pretend accounts creating massive interest debt with no equity, no reality, a dream world he and his friends hope to enjoy again unabated as when Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove and “little Bush” were running interference.

This was never sustainable, based on the simple theories of racketeering and petty theft taken to astronomical levels, now being sold to the American people as “mom and apple pie” or the bad liberals will take your shotgun.

These key industries and their political puppets represented by, well, you saw it with the broken planes that can’t defend us, the phony diamonds underwriting hundreds of worthless investment funds, and we consider this reform.

One thing Baretzky, the “diamond guy” had told me is the efforts made by nations, by the mining industry, by every financial institution to hide the fact that diamonds, the last “real” form of “transportable wealth” are of no more value than broken bottles.

You saw the “weasel words” meant to silence the truth.

Even America’s technological wealth, our last stronghold, died during Bush. Studies of AIPAC litigation, the “Rosen Case” and FBI records indicate that Bush mandated Israeli spying and illegal transfer of all vital American technologies, now resting in Russia, China, Israel and India, the intellectual and scientific work of a generation emailed, copied onto “thumb drives” or, in some cases, printed and delivered by boxes, weapons systems, pure science, America’s future “gone in a minute” with the approval of the “right” and the full complicity of the Israel lobby. Ask any FBI agent. It is why none of them sleep well anymore.

Here is a favorite of mine:

YouTube – Veterans Today –

This is a short video. It tells of a major terror attack on 9/11, of arrests, of bombs and weapons, you see Dan Rather speaking but then 24 hours later, those arrested never existed, no one asked a question, the only real proven 9/11 terrorists, ones who were never “Arab” or described as such, obviously tied to the destruction of the World Trade Center, simply disappeared.

Before the 9/11 investigation was allowed to begin, Dan Rather had to be discredited, fed supposedly altered copies of what has no proven to have been truthful allegation about Bush misconduct while dodging the Vietnam War.

Every word said by Rather was right and the documents he was fired over had never been submitted to any real forensic authority. Watch an episode of CSI (any). Real document examination goes a dozen times further, not just that, the facts themselves are checked too, something those who destroyed Rather, someone who reported a “non-Arab” 9/11 attack, made sure would never be publicized.

This is like the “birther” issue. You can’t examine an “internet document” and if you are going to prove Obama was born in Kenya, it is easy. Find the doctor that delivered him, nurses there, real witnesses, just one, not “forensic” examination of a picture on the internet.

For my “constitutionalist” GOP “birther” friends, please watch this 2008 video that makes their legal case for Austrian born (but white) Arnold Schwarzenegger to run for president, made before his “crash and burn” for fathering a child by one of his maids.

YouTube – Veterans Today –

Want more hypocrisy? Though the above video is actually humorous, millions were spent and top Department of Justice lawyers actually prepared briefs to support a Schwarzenegger candidacy. Republicans actually put a bill before the senate to allow foreign born presidents. Note that this is a “bill,” not a constitutional amendment. This means that, at least in 2003, Republicans thought they had the right to simply “outlegislate” the constitution. I think they meant to add “whites only” but forgot:

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a political ally of Schwarzenegger, introduced the Equal Right to Govern Amendment in July 2003, a few weeks before the actor declared his candidacy in the recall election in which Californians ousted Democrat Gray Davis as governor.

If Hatch’s amendment is adopted, an immigrant who has been a naturalized citizen for 20 years could run for president or vice president.

The meaning of the GOP position, as interpreted by what was then the Republican majority, is that the constitution could be overruled at will. Proof, of course, was the passing of the Patriot Acts, FISA and the 2005 suspension of habeas corpus, which also violated, not just the constitution but all basis of “common law,” which technically supercedes the contitution. The only further move would have been a suspension of natural laws and those of us who have lived our lives in the United States know that the basis of the GOP is the denial of physical laws.

They aren’t called “flat earthers” for nothing. Anyway, back to the Obama issue, which to me seems like an attempt to pass a law against “being president while black.”

One idiot actually claimed he could take apart “levels” of the famous document except for one thing; he had a picture, not a complex Adobe Photoshop file with layering data.

Anyone remember when Mitt Romney’s dad ran for President? He was born in Mexico. John McCain was born in Panama and there is NO provision in the constitution to allow for the presence of overseas military bases in presidential issues or even citizenship for that matter.

Should we retroactively revoke every Senate vote McCain ever made? Since he is the “father of the F 35 disaster,” not to speak of known by veterans as “Hanoi John,” we might get a consensus on that.

YouTube – Veterans Today –

There are 5 more parts to the Hopper testimony. Colonel Ted Guy, McCain’s commander while a POW demanded John McCain’s arrest. Instead, President Nixon gave McCain a Presidential Pardon, all this was shoved under the rug and McCain ended up in the Senate, though foreign born. Yet, bad as all this is, and the documentation on McCain is endless, compared to Mitt Romney, McCain is a god.

YouTube – Veterans Today –

For those who won’t take Colonel John Holland’s word on McCain or more evidence presented by Veterans Today, here is more key video evidence. Is this a “white and black” issue, is treason and foreign birth OK to a specific group of people either ignorant of the truth or, just perhaps, American by convenience?

YouTube – Veterans Today –

Disclosure usually means UFOs. Most Americans believe the US government is withholding information on Roswell or secret flying saucer projects. A surprising number even think Hitler had dealings with aliens and that Admiral Byrd sent a fleet to Antarctica to battle Nazi flying saucers.

Official records list Byrd’s expedition as scientific but the US has classified records of prisoner debriefings describing anti-gravity technology of alien origin and an odd variety of reports, myths and some reliable testimony that debunks our own story quite thoroughly.

The reason for curiosity about disclosure today isn’t so much interest in science fiction as economics. This might sound strange to some but the behavior of governments as far as dealing with economics and, yes, with science, no longer makes any sense.

Look at Japan, bankrupt, poisoned by radiation, spreading plutonium dust over the planet for month after month, a disaster to human genetics beyond any potential admission, that and economic policies that move massive yet imaginary sums of money without reason or purpose while civilization seems to move in reverse, lowered life spans, “de-technologicalization” with the exception of computer games and mobile phones, intelligence levels of advanced peoples, Northern Europeans, Americans, Jews, those who pride themselves in their self-aggrandizement, down over 20% in 25 years.

The more we learn of DNA and genetics, the more disease we seem to be plagued by, the more incurable the diseases seem to be and the less resolved mankind’s institutions are in dealing with global problems.

Ask folks about vaccines or global warming. 99% of the world’s scientists consider global warming a fact, a higher number than find cigarettes harmful, but university graduates in the US, those without training in scientific disciplines, express doubt or even consider the concept a government plot.

At the same time, the rich and powerful move higher and higher or buy bigger and bigger boats.

Political disclosure, from the end of World War II onward, is highly problematic. The “good nations” of the west rigged elections to colonize and steal, ensuring dictatorship and suffering that has left the next century one of continual warfare.

The “bad nations,” the supposed communist dictatorships, as scholarship improves and propaganda and disinformation is overcome by a new analytical group willing to face the “brave new world,” now appear to be “pretend enemies,” all part of the same club, with money and power a shared value and certain mysterious “bloodlines” and secret societies ruling all.

How many knew that Israel was Stalin’s invention, not Truman’s? Those few who challenge the holocaust might well be better off if they looked to who gained by fabricating history while formulating their theories.

They ask if the holocaust happened when the real question might better be if Nazi Germany itself existed. While Stalin murdered 10s of millions and children were starving in America, Germany advanced and lived in circumstances that most America’s, were they told the truth, would chose for their own children.

Yet Germany went to war with Zionism, though the average German Jew was, in fact, a model citizen, many, by many I mean hundreds of thousands, were war veterans. Hitler hated Jews but financed the Jewish military groups that fought in Palestine.

History teaches us that Hitler rambled on about Roosevelt and his Jewish masters but, in actuality, it was Stalin who was Jewish as were almost all around him and the majority of the combat in World War 2 was between those two nations who were oddly friends one day and enemies the next.

What is the point? It is simple, there is no conforming pattern for Hitler or Stalin’s behavior, no conventional rationale for either world war, no discernible reason for the economic collapse known as “the depression,” it was and is almost as though humanity were part of a bizarre social experiment where leaders are little more than puppets.

No wonder so many think the “ruling elites” are lizard aliens as David Ickes describes them. The history of human behavior, of economic and social development, of geopolitical organization lacks any linear aspect since the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

Americans wonder why congress passes unconstitutional laws, why government seems paralyzed yet Americans, yet humanity in general, waits and watches, hoping for a heartless institution to begin displaying the parental love so few ever knew and felt.

Every time we look away, be it the murder of JFK, the 9/11 fiasco, the double-killing of Zombie bin Laden or our international campaign of “rendition and torture for freedom,” we only open ourselves for more.

And so it goes….

Israel believes it could carry out strikes on Iran with under 500 civilian fatalities

Israel believes it could carry out strikes on Iran with under 500 civilian fatalities

By Adrian Blomfield,

Ehud Barak raised the prospect of military action with Iran once again as he hinted that splits in the international community over imposing sanctions regarded as crippling enough by Israel could leave the Jewish state with no option but to take matters into its own hands.

The warning came as a report by UN weapons inspectors into Iran’s nuclear activities was made public, concluding that the Islamist regime is closer to building an atom bomb than ever before.

Mr Barak conceded that the price of air strikes against Iran would be high, with Iran retaliating by firing long-range missiles at Israeli cities and encouraging its allies Hizbollah and Hamas to unleash their vast rocket arsenals at the country.

But he insisted that claims of huge destruction in Israel were overblown and that the country could survive the retaliation.

“There is no way to prevent some damage,” he said. “It will not be pleasant. There is no scenario for 50,000 dead, or 5,000 killed – and if everyone stays in their homes, maybe not even 500 dead.”

Mr Barak said the International Atomic Energy Agency’s report represents “the final opportunity” for the United Nations Security Council to punish Iran with sanctions of sufficient severity to force Iran into abandoning its nuclear ambitions.

Demanding that the international community finally take action to target Tehran’s vital energy sector, he called for a naval blockade to prevent Iran exploiting oil.

Although such a measure would undoubtedly do serious harm to Iran’s energy-dependent economy, even the United States is said to be concerned about the impact it would have on oil prices at a time of heightened vulnerability for the world economy.

Mr Barak predicted that opposition by Russia and China would make it impossible to achieve consensus in the Security Council for such sanctions, leaving military action increasingly as the only option.

“I don’t think it will be possible to form such a coalition,”
he told Israeli radio.

“As long as no such sanctions have been imposed and proven effective, we continue to recommend to our friends in the world and to ourselves not to take any action off the table.”

Mr Barak’s comments crown a week of increasingly bellicose language in Israel that is widely seen as more an attempt to force the United Nations Security Council into using the toughest possible sanctions against Iran rather than presaging imminent military action.

Even so, his rhetoric will cause alarm, with Russia and even some European states warning against the folly of unilateral Israeli action.

Alain Juppe, the French foreign minister, said on Tuesday that though concerns remained high about Iran’s nuclear programme, “we have to do everything we can to avoid the irreparable damage that military action would cause”.

Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, said a military strike on Iran could be a “catastrophe” for the Middle East.

“We should exhale, calm down and continue a constructive discussion of all issues on the Middle East agenda, including the Iranian nuclear program,” said Mr Medvedev, a day after an Asian security summit in St Petersburg that included Iran.

US officials said they hoped the IAEA report would increase leverage for tougher sanctions, rather than short term pressure for air strikes.

The “war camp” in the Israeli cabinet is believed to be in a minority that is championed primarily by Mr Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister.

But many Israeli politicians will agree with the defence minister’s assertion that the IAEA report represents “the last opportunity for coordinated, lethal sanctions that will force Iran to stop”.

Israel believes that Iran is intent on moving the bulk of its nuclear production underground within months, after which it will be harder than ever to launch effective military action.

WAR………What is it good for?

What Have We Gotten For The Trillion Dollars We Have Spent On Wars In Afghanistan, Iraq And Libya?

Over a trillion U.S. taxpayer dollars have been spent on the \"War on Terror\" and the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Whether you are for the wars or against the wars, it is important for all of us to step back and evaluate what we have really gotten for all of that money. In Libya, we have actually helped al-Qaeda forces that were shooting at U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan take over the country. Now they have announced that they will be imposing strict Sharia law on all of Libya. After 10 years of having our boys shot up in Afghanistan, the Afghan government is so “grateful” that they are publicly saying that they will side with Pakistan in any future war against the United States. In Iraq, Islamic radicals are beheading and murdering dozens and dozens of Christians and the new Iraqi government seemingly can’t wait to push the remaining U.S. soldiers out of the country. We ran up well over a trillion dollars of new debt to “liberate” these countries, but are they really in better shape than they were before these wars? Are we really in better shape than we were before these wars?

Today, the United States military has at least one base in more than half of all the nations on the planet.

The U.S. spends more than 7 times as much on the military as any other country on earth does. In fact, some say US military outspends the next 19 nations-combined!

Without a doubt, the United States will always need a strong military. But with the national debt soaring to unprecedented heights, is it really wise for us to try to be the police of the entire globe?

We have poured well over a trillion dollars into Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya and we have very little to show for it.

Are Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya safer places than before we went to war with them?

No.

Are Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya producing fewer “terrorists” than before we went to war with them?

No.

Are we safer than before we started all these wars?

No.

Our government has spent well over a trillion dollars and the blood of thousands upon thousands of U.S. soldiers has been spilled and in the final analysis very little has actually been accomplished.

Let’s take a closer look at these conflicts and see exactly what we have gotten for all of the money that we have spent….

Libya

In Libya, we have actually helped al-Qaeda take power.

In Afghanistan and Iraq we were supposedly fighting to do just the opposite. There is even evidence the assault on Libya was planned months or even years ahead.

So just what in the world is going on here?

The price tag for the first week of airstrikes on Libya alone was 600 million dollars.

Yes, Gaddafi was a tyrant, but have we invested a lot of time and effort only to watch as an even worse government takes power?

According to The Telegraph, the leader of the Libyan rebels was openly admitting that his “troops” included jihadists that were firing bullets at U.S. forces in Iraq….

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.

A recent article by Kurt Nimmo for Infowars.com discussed some of the other ways that al-Qaeda has been active in Libya during the fight against Gaddafi….

Despite Aujali’s assurance, Abdel Hakim Belhadj, the former head of LIFG, was appointed to run a military council in September. He fought with al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan.

In February, it was reported that al-Qaeda had set-up an Islamic emirate in Derna, in eastern Libya, headed by a former prisoner at Guantanamo Bay, Abdelkarim al-Hasadi.

Now that they have won, the “rebels” have announced that they will be imposing strict Sharia law all over Libya.

According to a new article posted on The Telegraph, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the chairman of NATO’s National Transitional Council, has even announced plans to repeal polygamy laws because they are not compliant with Sharia law….

Mr Abdul-Jalil went further, specifically lifting immediately, by decree, one law from Col. Gaddafi’s era that he said was in conflict with Sharia – that banning polygamy.

Should we be cheering this?

Why would the U.S. government want to spend a single penny helping al-Qaeda take over Libya and set up Sharia law there?

There should not be a single American (conservative or liberal) that supports what has gone down in Libya.

Afghanistan

The U.S. military has now been in Afghanistan for 10 years. World War II lasted less than 6 years. The U.S. government has spent over 467 billion dollars on the war in Afghanistan, and thousands upon thousands of our troops have been killed or wounded there.

Even after all this time, a single day of the war in Afghanistan costs more money than it took to build the entire Pentagon.

So are the Afghans grateful that we have sacrificed so much to bring “democracy” to that nation?

Of course not.

Just check out what Afghan President Hamid Karzai said during one recent interview….

“God forbid, If ever there is a war between Pakistan and America, Afghanistan will side with Pakistan”

Did you catch that?

Karzai says that in a future war between Pakistan and the United States, Afghanistan is going to be fighting against us.

But didn’t we bring them freedom?

No, we did not.

Instead, one radical Islamic government replaced another.

Today, there are officially zero Christian churches left in Afghanistan.

The new constitution of Afghanistan says that that Islam is the “religion of the state”.

The new constitution of Afghanistan also states that “no law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam”.

Earlier this year, I wrote about one Afghan man that was actually sentenced to death for converting to Christianity….

In Afghanistan right now, a one-legged Afghan Red Cross worker named Said Musa is sitting in a prison cell awaiting his execution. Musa, a father of six children, was arrested by the Afghan government as he attempted to seek asylum at the German embassy last year. He was sentenced to death by an Afghan court that was established by the new Afghan government that the United States worked so hard to set up. He has been tortured and sexually abused for months. An Afghan judge has told him that he will be hung within a matter of days. So what was his crime? He was a Muslim that has become a Christian. Under Sharia law, that is punishable by death. Is this is the “freedom” that we have sacrificed so many American lives to bring to Afghanistan?

Thankfully he was later released from prison and was able to get out of the country.

However, this just shows that the people of Afghanistan are currently experiencing a level of freedom that is quite comparable to what they experienced under the Taliban.

After all that the United States has done over there, very little positive change has taken place.

Iraq

Up to now, it is estimated that the U.S. government has spent over 800 billion dollars on the war in Iraq.

Thousands upon thousands of U.S. soldiers lost arms and legs in Iraq.

Thousands of U.S. soldiers will never be coming home at all.

But after all of our efforts, Iraq is still a far less safe place than it was before we invaded.

Christians and other religious minorities once were able to worship in peace, but now they are racing to get out of Iraq as fast as they can.

Why?

Well, because Christians and other religious minorities are being brutally targeted by Islamic radicals.

For example, about a year ago more than 80 Iraqi Christians were beheaded on a single day. All that the Christians were trying to do was attend a church service. One four-month-old baby was actually beheaded right in front of her parents.

Iraq is a complete and total disaster zone at this point.

The Iraqi government says that it is willing for U.S. military trainers to stay in the country, but they also say that there will be no more immunity for U.S. soldiers.

We have left the country in far worse shape than we found it, and Iraq is now a bigger breeding ground for terrorists than it ever was before.

You see, the truth is that the populations of these countries will continue to hold a grudge once we leave. They are simply not going to forgive and forget. There are millions of Islamic radicals in these countries that will never, ever, ever forgive the United States. The hatred that they feel for us could be passed down for generations.

We have not brought freedom to the people of Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Instead, we have just replaced the tyranny that they were suffering under with new forms of tyranny.

Meanwhile, we continue to spend ourselves into oblivion.

Yes, the U.S. will always need a strong military.

Yes, there are areas where we actually need to spend more on the military. For example, now that Barack Obama has completely gutted our strategic nuclear arsenal, that is one area that we desperately need to attend to.

However, we simply cannot continue to recklessly spend money like we are today. We are in debt up to our eyeballs, and trying to be “the police of the world” is very expensive….

*Before the start of the “War on Terror”, the U.S. national debt was under 6 trillion dollars. Today, it is getting very close to 15 trillion dollars.

*Right now, the U.S. military is in nearly 130 different nations and it has a total of approximately 700 military bases around the world. It takes about 100 billion dollars a year to maintain these bases.

*U.S. military spending is greater than the military spending of China, Russia, Japan, India, and the rest of NATO combined.

*The United States accounts for 46.5% of all military spending on the planet. China is in second place with only 6.6%.

Meanwhile, our national security just continues to deteriorate. Millions of people have illegally poured across our border with Mexico and the federal government is actually suing border states such as Arizona to keep them from trying to stop this.

Our national security priorities are way, way out of whack. We continue to waste money in some of the most bizarre ways imaginable and yet we continue to become less secure with each passing year.

Yes, the United States needs a very, very strong military.

Yes, national security needs to be a very, very high priority.

But what we have been doing over the past decade has not worked. In fact, the Bush/Obama foreign policy has been an abject failure. We have poured hundreds of billions of dollars down the drain and we are less secure today than at any point since World War II.

It is time to admit that Barack Obama and George W. Bush have been fundamentally wrong about these wars. Because of their foolishness, we are less safe today and our allies are less safe today.

Afghanistan is not our friend now. Neither is Iraq. Libya looks like it is going to become an al-Qaeda paradise thanks to us.

There is very little “freedom” in those 3 nations today. Instead, “Islamic law” is being shoved down the throats of the people living in those countries.

So, in the final analysis, what have we really accomplished?

PECAN –

We KNOW the elite monied powers of the World wish to create a “NEW WORLD ORDER” in which they rule over all. In fact, many believe the Biblical prophecy of the Ten Horn Beast to be fulfilled by the NWO alignment. We have every indication that our sovereignty is being threatened and our enemy is domestic. Our once free people are falling into the trap of dicatorship. The trap of exchanging freedom for temporary security. Many of our so-called “leaders” are taking part of the dismantling of the United States including our Dictator-in-Chief. Our Congress warn of endless wars designed only to broaden an empire rather than provide legitimate defense. Even today, Nato is said to be in final preparations for a new war. A war against Syria….Iran….or anyone else who gets in our way. Regardless of the next “enemy” we choose to target the other boys on the street are losing patience. Russia and China have warned America of the consequences of attacking Iran. Will we heed those warnings? Or will we continue to apply regional pressure until they go on the offensive? World events are taking final shape. Albert Pikes predicted Three World Wars are progressing as planned. Regardless, Americans are waking up and beginning to prepare at unprecedented levels. Patriots are learning the skills and stocking up on the supplies required to Survive and Thrive regardless of what crisis occurs. And rest assured, there will be a crisis. Will you be ready?

The curious case of the Bear, the Lion, and the Leopard

ASTANA, Kazakhstan – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Wednesday for a security alliance of several former Soviet nations and China to form a united front against the West.

Ahmadinejad’s address to fellow heads of state at the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Kazakhstan will likely deepen suspicions that the bloc is intended as a counterweight to the United States across the region.

In a summit declaration signed by all the member states, the organization also attacked missile defence programs in another apparent dig at the United States.

The one-sided and unlimited development of missile defence systems by one government or a narrow group of governments could cause damage to strategic stability and international security,” the document said.

Much of Ahmadinejad’s fiery speech was devoted to levelling an exhaustive series of thinly veiled accusations against unnamed Western countries, which he described as “enslavers, colonialists, (and) invaders.”

Which one of our countries (has played a role) in the black era of slavery, or in the destruction of hundreds of millions of human beings?” Ahmadinejad said, opening his address.

The SCO was formed in Shanghai in 2001 by China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to address religious extremism and border security in Central Asia, but it has in recent years attracted interest in full membership from countries like Iran, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Its scope has since broadened to economic issues, but the organization has struggled nonetheless to forge a clear purpose.

BIBLICAL PROPHETIC RELEVANCE AND PROPHETIC DREAM OF IRAN/RUSSIA/CHINESE ALLIANCE

Iran’s entry to the SCO has been resisted by the existing members, who worry that Iran’s membership would lend the group a more explicitly anti-American quality, a concern that Ahmadinejad was seemingly unwilling to allay.

Russia has been an active opponent of U.S.-backed plans to create a missile shield in Europe and was likely behind the inclusion of harsh words against the proposal in the summit declaration.

Moscow sees the U.S.-led missile defence plans as a potential threat to its security. It has agreed to consider NATO’s proposal to co-operate on the missile shield, but insists the system be run jointly.

Reprising the criticism addressed at Washington, Afghan President Hamid Karzai renewed calls for the United States to respect his country’s sovereignty.

Karzai has in recent months become increasingly strident in his attacks against NATO’s accidental bombings of Afghan civilians, describing the Western-led alliance as being at risk of becoming an “occupying force.

“I believe together we can reform the way the world is managed. We can restore the tranquillity of the world,” he said.

LEOPARD LION BEAR IN PROPHECY
Turning to his audience of ex-Soviet and Asian leaders he asked: “Have any of us used an atomic bomb against the defenceless citizens of any other country?”

Returning to his past claims that a conspiracy could have been behind the September 11 attacks on the United States,

Ahmadinejad added:

“Have any of our countries played a part in the creation of 9/11 under whose pretext Afghanistan and Iraq were invaded and more than one million people have been killed or wounded?

Chinese leader Hu Jintao held talks on Tuesday with Ahmadinejad, discussing Tehran’s controversial nuclear programme.

China urged Iran to participate in the six-party talks on nuclear energy and “take substantial steps in respect of establishing trust” and “speed up the process of dialogue,” the Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported.

Tehran used to rely on Moscow as a dependable ally in its standoff over the nuclear programme but relations have rapidly deteriorated as Russia increased pressure on Iran after Dmitry Medvedev became president.

I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore Toto: 2011 deadliest Tornado Season since 1953

By TIMOTHY W. MARTIN And ROBERT LEE HOTZ

Despite the heavy toll, the storm system that spawned the tornado wasn’t unusual for this time of year, say meteorologists. The high death toll resulted from the twister’s path through a commercial area including a hospital, a nursing home, a row of crowded restaurants and several large stores. The winds, while as high as 198 miles per hour, weren’t unusual for powerful springtime tornadoes in parts of the U.S.

Highlighting the unpredictability of such lethal storms, the weeks before the twister marked an unusual lull in the number of tornadoes that normally occur this time of year, experts said. More than half the season’s severe tornadoes usually strike in May and June. During the first three weeks of May, however, the number of powerful twisters had dipped to historic lows, federal meteorologists said.

“We were so far below normal in the first three weeks of May that we may not catch up to normal for the month,” said meteorologist Harold Brooks at the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, Okla.

April was especially busy, contributing to one of the most severe spring tornado seasons on record. NOAA officials estimate there have been almost 1,000 tornadoes this year, double the total of a typical year, with storms raging from Missouri to North Carolina. This year’s tally of 50 fatal tornadoes compares with about 20 in an average year.

Forecasters expect severe thunderstorms, which can spawn tornadoes, to persist for the next several days, heightening the potential for more twisters before the storm system is blown out to sea and dissipates.

Strong tornadoes are “likely” Tuesday over Oklahoma, Kansas, and other areas, with the storm system moving eastward Wednesday to Southeast Missouri, Central Illinois, and surrounding states, the National Weather Service said.

Tornadoes moved through the Midwest, damaging a hospital, hundreds of homes and businesses, and a helicopter.

The twister in Joplin comes on the heels last month of the largest one-day outbreak of tornadoes to date, when 226 twisters were reported during a single 24-hour period on April 27, largely in Alabama and Mississippi. All told, the cluster of tornadoes, which continued into the following day, killed more than 340 people.

This spring’s outbreak surpasses any since 1953, when 519 people were killed at a time when forecasters lacked the technology and ability to warn people well before storms hit. The 1953 toll included 116 people killed when a tornado struck Flint, Mich., 114 from one in Waco, Texas, and 90 from a tornado in Worcester, Mass. The toll from that season was so heavy that it prompted the federal government to help set up ground-based radar systems that allowed local weather forecasters to track storms across regions, rather than relying solely on observational reports from weather bureaus outside their areas.

Final numbers on tornadoes and deaths this year won’t be available for months because early tallies include duplicate reports—and some unreported storms. NOAA officials warn that for now the tornado numbers will appear high until local weather forecasters can confirm the final count.

Paper or Plastic? Canada Prepares To Introduce Plastic Money

Canada Prepares To Introduce Plastic Money


Apr. 13 2011 – 4:50 pm |
Posted by Mother Nature Network

Written by Melissa Hincha-Ownby

When I think of paying with plastic, I think of credit or debit cards. However, my thought process is going to have to change. Canada will soon join a growing list of countries that use a polymer-based plastic instead of paper for its cash. The new plastic money will be rolled out in phases with the $100 bill scheduled for introduction in November. In March 2012, a $50 bill will be added to the mix and the rest of the smaller bills will be introduced by the end of 2013.

There are several benefits to plastic cash – enhanced security, a longer life and the money is even cleaner. We all know how dirty money can be but the new bills are resistant to water, oil, sweat, dust and more.

“Further, scientific evaluation has shown that there is significantly less bacteriological growth on polymer banknotes, and that any bacteria which gets onto the notes quickly dies because of the lack of nutrients on the non-porous and non-fibrous material.” Source: Securency International Pty Ltd.

While the cleanliness factor is nice, the security benefits are one of the biggest draws of switching to plastic money. Australia has been using polymer-based cash for more than a decade and the country has seen a significant reduction in counterfeit bills.

The polymer-based money is also recyclable. The money is made out of polypropylene, which can be recycled and used to create new products including plumbing fittings, compost bins and other household items.

I can’t think of a downside to plastic money. I know that BPA is often associated with plastics but even our paper money is contaminated with BPA.

EARTHQUAKE to strike CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES within WEEKS! RING OF FIRE EARTHQUAKE and NEW MADRID BICENTENNIAL COINCIDE!

Earthquake forecaster Jim Berkland warns of a ‘high risk’ seismic window and potential for a massive quake poised to strike somewhere in North America.

NEW MADRID BICENTTENIAL – THESE THINGS RUN IN CYCLES

Several of the largest historical earthquakes to strike the continental United States occurred in the winter of 1811-1812 along the New Madrid Seismic Zone, which stretches from just west of Memphis, Tennessee into southern Illinois. These earthquakes produced at least three temblors between magnitude 7-8, and hundreds of aftershocks.

In 2011 and 2012, there will be events held throughout the central United States observing the 200th Anniversary of the great 1811 and 1812 New Madrid earthquakes that forever changed the mid-western landscape. These quakes were felt across the U.S. and as far south as the Gulf of Mexico, and as far north as Canada. Organizations from across the United States will participate in the bicentennial events, which range from conferences, workshops, public outreach events, multi-state earthquake exercises, field trips, and more.

US overdue for huge Pacific quake: experts

By Agence France-Presse
Tuesday, March 15th, 2011 — 6:01 pm

WASHINGTON – The western United States is overdue for a huge earthquake and tsunami much like the one that devastated Japan last week, and is nowhere near ready to cope with the disaster, experts say.

A volatile, horseshoe-shaped area known as the Pacific Ring of Fire has recently erupted with quakes in Chile, Japan, Mexico and New Zealand, and seismologists say it is just a matter of time before the next big one hits.

Twin fault lines place the US west at risk: the San Andreas fault that scars the length of California and the lesser-known but more potent Cascadia Subduction Zone off the Pacific Coast.

A 9.0 quake in this underwater fault that stretches from the northern tip of California all the way to Canada’s British Columbia could simultaneously rattle major port cities of Vancouver, Portland and Seattle, unleash a massive tsunami and kill thousands of people.

survival seed vault

From the geological standpoint, this earthquake occurs very regularly,” said geotechnical engineer Yumei Wang, who is the geohazards team leader at the Oregon Department of Geology.

With the Cascadia fault, we have records of 41 earthquakes in the last 10,000 years with an average of 240 years apart. Our last one was 311 years ago so we are overdue,” she said.

Records from the last quake in Cascadia in 1700 AD show that the tsunami it generated killed people in Japan.

Geologists can’t predict exactly when the next earthquake will be but engineers can predict the damage pattern,” said Wang.

Major efforts to retrofit buildings have been underway for decades in western states, but many coastal schools, hospitals and fire and police stations are still housed in older buildings and remain at risk.

“Eight hundred and four of our schools out of 1,355 schools — more than half of them — we think have a high likelihood of collapse in a major earthquake,” she said, referring to the state of Oregon.

In case of a tsunami, experts are also concerned about old structures and elderly or ill people who may live near the water and may find themselves unable to escape a swelling wave.

Quite frankly some of our coastal communities are extensive enough and flat enough that moving inland and uphill is not possible. It is just too far to go,” said Wang.

Engineers have devised a concept for a tsunami shelter where residents could seek higher ground without traveling far inland, but none have yet been built.

All preparedness is local and it varies dramatically over the length of the coast,” said Tom Tobin, president of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute.

For instance, California has a state law that says all hospitals should be constructed so that they can withstand a major earthquake and still function, Tobin said.

But “since 1971 only one new hospital has been constructed in San Francisco to that higher standard. All the other campuses are in older buildings, some of them dating back to the early 1900s,” he said.

Other big risks include damage to the electricity grid and the potential for a quake to upset Washington state’s shuttered but volatile Hanford nuclear plant which holds 53 million gallons of radioactive waste and is considered the most contaminated nuclear site in America.

We are just not ready,” said Ivan Wong, principal seismologist and vice president at URS, a large international engineering firm.

We are not at all even close to being as prepared the way the Japanese were, and yet you can see the devastation that occurred,” he said.

“I think in the United States we have a hard time convincing people there is a real danger that lies out there on the Pacific northwest coast.”

Even though the quakes along the Pacific Ring of Fire may seem to be happening more regularly, scientists say they have not been able to identify a pattern and the quake in Japan does not necessarily make the United States more vulnerable.

As far as we know, an earthquake… in Japan does not have an effect on any occurrence of earthquakes… say, in California, or any other parts. The main effect it would have is to the adjacent parts, to the north and to the south of that area,” said Jim Whitcomb, geophysicist at the National Science Foundation.

Wong said the next big US quake could be preceded by a foreshock, like the 7.2 one in Japan that came days ahead of the 8.9 event on Friday, or it might come with no warning at all.

“Every earthquake seems to behave in a very different fashion
,” he said.

Is The New Madrid Fault Earthquake Zone Coming To Life?

The American Dream


What in the world is happening in the middle of the United States right now? Thousands of birds are falling dead from the skies, tens of thousands of fish are washing up on shore dead, earthquakes are popping up in weird and unexpected places and people are starting to get really freaked out about all of this. Well, one theory is that the New Madrid fault zone is coming to life. The New Madrid fault zone is six times bigger than the San Andreas fault zone in California and it covers portions of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. The biggest earthquakes in the history of the United States were caused by the New Madrid fault. Now there are fears that the New Madrid fault zone could be coming to life again, and if a “killer earthquake” does strike it could change all of our lives forever.

So exactly what events have happened recently that are causing people to take a close look at the New Madrid fault zone? Well, just consider the following examples of things that have been popping up in the news lately….

*According to the U.S. Geological Survey, more than 500 measurable earthquakes have been recorded in central Arkansas just since September.

*A magnitude-3.8 earthquake that shook north-central Indiana on December 30th is being called “unprecedented”. It was strong enough to actually cause cracks along the ground and it was felt in portions of Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kentucky.

*More than 3,000 red-wing blackbirds fell out of the sky dead in the Arkansas town of Beebe on New Year’s Eve.

*Large numbers of dead birds were also found in Kentucky right around Christmas.

*Approximately 500 dead blackbirds and starlings were also recently discovered in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana.

*Approximately 100,000 fish washed up dead on the shores of the Arkansas River.

So could all of these things have some other very simple explanation?

Possibly.

But the fact that they all happened in or around the New Madrid fault zone is starting to raise some eyebrows.

About 200 years ago, in 1811 and 1812, there were four earthquakes that were so powerful in the area of the New Madrid fault zone that they are still talked about today. All four of the quakes were estimated to have been magnitude-7.0 or greater. It is said that those earthquakes opened deep fissures in the ground, caused the Mississippi River to run backwards and that they were felt as far away as Boston.

The last major earthquake to hit the region was a 5.4-magnitude quake that struck the town of Dale, Illinois in 1968. Things have been strangely quiet in the region since then until recently.

If a true “killer earthquake” struck along the New Madrid fault zone today, cities such as St. Louis, Missouri and Memphis, Tennessee could potentially be completely destroyed.

Unfortunately, this is not an exaggeration.

http://www.activistpost.com/2011/01/is-new-madrid-fault-earthquake-zone.html

“And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”
-Luke 21:11

The NEXT US EarthQuake….

The 7.0 magnitude earthquake that has essentially destroyed the nation of Haiti has refocused attention on the prophecies about earthquakes in the last days that we find in the Scriptures. Yahshua (Jesus) told us that we would see an increase in earthquakes as we approached His coming and that this would be a clear sign that the end times was at hand. Could the unusual shaking that we are currently seeing around the world be an indication that we are approaching the time prophesied almost 2000 years ago?

You see, unfortunately the Haiti earthquake is not an isolated incident. 2010 is already a banner year for major earthquakes.

For example, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake shook the ocean floor between South America and Antarctica on Sunday.

A magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit Guatemala’s Pacific coast near the border with El Salvador on Monday, but fortunately it did not do much damage.

Kaspersky Lab E-Store

There have already been five magnitude 6.0 or greater earthquakes in the area of the Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean so far in 2010.

The annual average of worldwide earthquakes measuring 6.0 or greater is 152. If the current pace continues, we will see 260 in 2010.

The earth is shaking my friends.

But aren’t we safe from such things in most areas of the United States?

Well, no.

U.S. scientists are predicting that a Haiti-magnitude earthquake will strike along the New Madrid fault in the U.S. some time during the next 50 years.

In 1811, an earthquake along the New Madrid fault was so powerful that it “shook windows and furniture in Washington, D.C., rang bells in Richmond, Virginia, sloshed well water and shook houses in Charleston, South Carolina, and knocked plaster off of houses in Columbia, South Carolina.”

At that time the area of the New Madrid fault was not heavily populated, so the damage was somewhat minimized. But if a true “killer quake” were to strike along the New Madrid fault now, it could devastate an area all the way from Chicago down to the mouth of the Mississippi River.

But the New Madrid fault is not the only area of the U.S. that is a concern.

The truth is that residents of California live in perpetual anticipation of a major earthquake, and a flurry of recent earthquake activity all over that state is raising concerns that California could be the next spot to be hit by the Big One.

In fact, a very large number of small earthquakes have been reported all over the state of California in the last 7 days.

So will California be hit by a “killer quake” any time soon?

Let’s hope not.

But scientists are essentially guaranteeing that one will hit that state during our lifetimes.

The Los Angeles Times recently reported on the “Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast” which was released in 2007. That report says that California has a 99.7% chance of a 6.7 magnitude earthquake within 30 years.

A 99.7 percent chance?

Ouch.

While most buildings in California would survive a 7.0 earthquake better than most buildings in Haiti did, the truth is that California may eventually see a killer earthquake that is far, far more powerful than the one that Haiti just witnessed.

In fact, there are those who theorize that a truly massive quake could permanently alter the geography of California.

Seriously.

And if we are to take the words of Yahshua (Jesus) seriously (and we should), then we are only going to see an increase in the frequency and severity of global earthquakes from here on out.

So get ready.

A shaking is coming.

5 Theories Why We’re Experiencing Increased Earthquake Activity 8.9 Quake Devastates
Activist Post

Planet Earth has experienced a very noticeable up-tick in earthquake activity and intensity over the last five years. Leading up to the great Japan quake, we’ve witnessed the utter devastation from the 2004 Indian Ocean megathrust earthquake and tsunami, the catastrophic Haiti quake, an axis-moving Chile quake in 2010, massive and multiple quakes in New Zealand, and record earthquake swarms hitting Yellowstone and the New Madrid Fault line in middle America culminating with the worst earthquake in 35 years to hit the area, and many more.

The devastating effects on human civilization are on full display in the most recent 8.9 earthquake in Japan. The powerful quake and corresponding tsunami showed that not even a fully developed nation with the world’s third largest economy can withstand nature’s fury. This was also evident in the New Zealand quakes which continue to demolish the first-world city of Christchurch.

Evidence of increased tectonic activity aside, the great Japan quake of 2011 will go down as the event that finally woke up humanity from their slumber to recognize the potential damage quakes can and will cause. The huge quakes in Haiti and Chile last year indicated the power of such activity, but the effects of the nuclear meltdown happening in Japan will likely have global consequences that force society to challenge our conventional path.

This new awareness of our fragile existence in the face of such powerful forces of nature has brought about many theories as to why earthquake activity is increasing. Many will brush it off as natural occurrences without understanding that everything in nature is caused by something, whether or not it can be seen or measured. Indeed, we are witnessing many earth changes happening for the first time in modern history. And perhaps all of these anomalies are connected in some way, or at least compounding nature’s recent wrath.

Here are five theories as to the cause of increased earthquake activity:

Solar and Lunar Activity: Meteorologist and astrophysicist Piers Corbyn claims a combination of solar activity and the extreme lunar cycle is the cause of the increased earthquakes. He’s not alone. On March 9th, NASA reported a powerful solar flare, an X1.5-class explosion from behemoth sunspot 1166 around 2323 UT, which they said would cause ‘global disturbances’. On March 10th, Space.com posed the question “Will March 19 ‘Supermoon’ Trigger Natural Disasters?” The very next day, the third largest earthquake ever recorded struck Japan. Many scientist have speculated the “Supermoon“, set for peak arrival tomorrow, is causing gravitational disturbances because it is the closest the celestial body has been to the Earth in 18 years.

Pole Shift:
As the magnetic pole continues to wander rapidly toward Russia, it has led to speculation that this might be leading to the record number of earthquakes seen in 2010, as well as the recent mega-quakes. According to proponents of this theory, pole shift is a geomagnetic event that exerts pressure on the Earth’s tectonic plates. As the pole wanders, the core and plates realign producing fluctuations and great upheaval until the crust can stabilize. The lights in the sky that have been recorded just prior to earthquakes may be evidence of the natural harmonic activity of the geomagnetic flux.

HAARP:
Researchers into the potential for earthquake creation cite HAARP and its various counterpart arrays around the world as a principal theory for recent mega-quakes such as those in Haiti, Chile, and now Japan. HAARP is a billion watt microwave that bounces frequencies off the ionosphere. Admitted functions are for ground penetrating radar, which some believe is a dangerous application that involves using frequencies that can disrupt the Earth’s natural magnetic field. In fact, the Department of Defense gave a briefing on the subject while discussing weapons of mass destruction in 1997. As observable evidence of such atmospheric tampering, researchers point to the correlations between visual anomalies such as colorful light displays and a characteristic wave pattern with a “punch hole” evident in cloud formations associated with these recent mega-quakes.

JESSE VENTURA HAARP

Climate Change: Some climatologists believe that shifting ice caps can have an effect on tectonic activity because the massive weight of the ice is changing locations. Global warming alarmists have sought to pin the great Japan quake on the disappearing ice, however they seem to lose some credibility as polar ice is actually increasing according to U.S. Navy Polar Ice Prediction System. Yet, it seems feasible that even shifting ice, which appears to be moving in the direction of the North Pole shift, may indeed affect the flotation of the earth’s outer crust. This could conceivably cause some tectonic movement and be partially related to some earthquake activity.


Shifting Polar Ice – U.S. Navy Polar Ice Prediction System

Gas Fracking: Since September of 2010, nearly 800 earthquakes rattled Arkansas and the New Madrid Fault Line. The entire state only experienced 38 quakes in 2009. Hydraulic fracturing is the most likely cause of increased earthquakes. Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) pumps water and chemicals into the ground at a pressurized rate exceeding what the bedrock can withstand, resulting in a microquake that produces rock fractures. A close look at Arkansas’ history of earthquakes and drilling reveals a shockingly noticeable surge in quake frequency following advanced drilling. Although, fracking is now a global technique for finding natural gas, it’s unlike to be the cause of major earthquakes in Japan, New Zealand, Chile, or Haiti.

PROPHECIES AND VISIONS

Pastor Kilpatrick wants to share with his partners and friends the following vision and dream he had in April and May 2008. He has never posted a vision or dream on the internet, but after talking with some close friends, intercessors, as well as those in prophetic ministry he has agreed to do so. His intentions are not to alarm the Church or the public, but to forewarn us to pray concerning what he has seen. At this time, we do not have the full revelation or meaning of this vision and dream, but know that the Lord is trying to warn us and prepare us for the days ahead. Please help us pray to the Lord concerning this matter.

Sunday, April 27, 2008 – Vision

kirkpatrickAs I was approaching the Daphne Civic Center for Sunday morning service at Church of His Presence, I had a vision which lasted for about two or three seconds. In this vision, I saw the ground buckling before me. It was so real that I actually moved aside to avoid what I was seeing. I knew immediately that it was an earthquake, and the thought crossed my mind that the damages of this earthquake could have the potential to exceed those of Hurricane Katrina of 2005. Please understand that I am not saying that the Lord told me this. It merely crossed my mind.

Tuesday, May 20, 2008 – Dream

I awoke trembling and shaking at 5:00 in the morning after having a startling dream. This was one of the three most profound dreams that I have ever had during the ministry the LORD has called me to. I feel that this dream is an addendum to the vision I had on April 27, 2008.

In this dream I saw the words “wind and water.” I only saw the words but did not actually see any wind or water damage. I then found myself overlooking a river which instantly became so wide that I could no longer see either of its banks.

The dream then shifted, and I was with one of my parishioners running through what appeared to be an old abandoned school house. This empty building began to shake. The shaking was so violent and severe that it was like the bucking of a wild horse tossing us around. My teeth were clapping so hard from the impact that I tried to clench them to prevent this from happening.

In this dream I knew I was experiencing a massive earthquake. The sounds were so catastrophic that the thought crossed my mind that the devastation could likely exceed Hurricane Katrina of 2005. I did not see the devastation behind me; I only heard it. In all of my life I have never heard such catastrophic sounds. These were the scariest sounds I have ever heard.

The dream then shifted once more and concluded with two names on what appeared to be an old Spanish map. One name read Indianola and the other Europa. When I awoke, I was shaking as if I had chills and a fever. I could not stop trembling. All through the day I felt as if I had just had the dream 10 minutes ago.

This dream so shook me that my wife and I immediately went to the internet to do some research. I also contacted some close friends in the ministry and reliable intercessors concerning this dream. What we found was startling. There are towns called Indianola, IL; Europa, MO; and Indianola, MS. These towns run in a line from North to South with Europa, MO being near the middle of them. The Mississippi River runs between them with Europa, MO being by the epicenter of the New Madrid fault.

After seeing this, I believe the dream could be concerning a devastating earthquake on the New Madrid fault. Many reputable friends in ministry have felt that this dream was not to be interpreted as a spiritual dream because they felt that it has literal implications. Even now the intensity of this dream is the same.

I do not want to come across as an alarmist concerning what I saw. I also don’t want to put fear in the public or the Body of Christ. However, I cannot help but feel that God gave me this as warning to prepare us for the days ahead and to pray concerning this matter.

Please know that I did not see any timeframe as to when this may happen. Please pray with me concerning this vision and dream.

Published Nov. 5, 1999: Scientists warn fault at New Madrid does pose serious threat

http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word/6500

By Andy Mead — Herald-Leader Staff Writer
: 8:12am on Mar 16, 2011

Another volley will be fired today in what might be called the Middle America Quake Wars.

In today’s issue of Science, a team of researchers report they have looked closely at the New Madrid earthquake fault and found that the potential for a large quake is “a serious threat.”

By large quake, they mean strong enough to severely damage places like Memphis, St. Louis and Paducah. Strong enough to break levees along 150 miles of the Mississippi River. Strong enough to rattle Lexington.

That view counters an article in the same publication last spring that found that predictions of a large quake had been overstated.

The earlier research sent tremors through the ranks of scientists who study the New Madrid fault, an ancient scar in the Earth’s crust miles beneath the area where Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas and Illinois meet.

Some scientists, including John Kiefer, an assistant director of the Kentucky Geological Survey, worried that downplaying New Madrid’s threat could lead to weakening building codes in the region.

The New Madrid fault is not as well known as some in other parts of the world, but that’s because it hasn’t caused a major shake in a while. In 1811 and 1812, the fault produced what might have been among the strongest earthquakes ever felt in North America.

There were no seismographs at the time, but the new study estimates that they would have registered a magnitude of 7.5.

There were few people living in this part of the country at that time, but one of the quakes was said to have rung church bells as far away as Boston and Washington, D.C. There were reports of the Mississippi running backward.

The team of scientists who wrote the earlier article was led by geologist Seth Stein of Northwestern University. They used Global Positioning System satellites to measure movement at various places in the region of the fault.

They found so little movement that they concluded that a huge earthquake was not likely to ever happen, and that the giant quakes of the last century might not have been as strong as now thought .

Research for the current article was headed by Karl Mueller, a geologist at Colorado University-Boulder.

They took a very different approach from Stein’s team, using backhoes to dig long trenches in the area around Tennessee’s Reelfoot Lake.

That allowed them to measure “kink bands” that are formed as the land is pushed upward. Then they used a technique that enhanced relief maps of the area. They also mapped the small quakes that happen frequently.

Their research shows that the fault has stored enough energy since 1811-1812 to produce an earthquake of about a 6.5 magnitude today, although they don’t predict when it will happen.

“Our evidence shows the New Madrid seismic zone is indeed a threat,” Mueller said. “For the first time we can see how fast the earthquake engine is running and how long it takes to build up energy for a quake.”

An Earthquake Along the New Madrid Fault Line Could Affect More Than 15 million Americans in Eight States

Wednesday, 16-Mar-2011 18:08:04

Quake Along New Madrid Fault Line Could Devastate Central U.S.

An earthquake along the New Madrid fault line could affect more than 15 million Americans in eight states, according to an August 2009 report by the U.S. Geological Survey. The report suggests that a major quake along the New Madrid fault line — centered in the central part of the U.S. — could significantly impact several states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. One area at particular risk from a 7.0 or 8.0 quake is Memphis, which the study says is not prepared to withstand that type of damage given its “aging infrastructure.”

The study goes on to say that although Tennessee’s infrastructure — including buildings, highways, and response efforts — would be overwhelmed as a result of such an event, cities like St. Louis, Little Rock and “many small and medium sized cities would also sustain damage.”

FEMA says South Carolina, located above an active fault line, is also at risk for the potential of a “catastrophic” earthquake. In 1886, Charleston, S.C. experienced a 7.6 earthquake that, with a 2008 population in excess of 348,000, would do significant damage to the state’s coastal area.

AREAS MOST AT RISK

“Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.” Mark 13:8


New Madrid Fault & Arkansas Earthquakes Spur Fears In The Midwest

February 28, 2011

Recently, we have seen a dramatic increase in sales of products to customers in the Midwest. The reason for this increase in sales would seem intuitive — Midwestern states have been getting routinely hammered by the epic winter snows of 2011; and indeed, this is partially the case. However, after interviewing a handful of our customers from the Midwest, we made a new and rather sobering discovery — many of these customers are becoming increasingly worried about the New Madrid Seismic Zone, an increase in Arkansas earthquakes, and the strange (and poorly explained) deaths of thousands of birds and fish in the region, and they are planning for the worst.

When most people in the United States think of Seismic Zones, they generally think of California. With the San Andreas Fault slicing more than 800 miles through California – a massive fissure separating the North Atlantic and Pacific plates – and a history of attention-grabbing tremors to remind us of it’s volatility, California generally wins the prize as the earthquake high-risk zone of note. But it may surprise you to learn that there is another active seismic zone in the United States, one that is responsible for this country’s four largest earthquakes ever, with magnitudes exceeding 8.0, and it isn’t on the west coast.

It’s in the Midwest.

Specifically, this active region, called the New Madrid Fault, lurks under a four-state area including Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Kentucky, but has the potential to affect a region that is far greater. In fact, in a cluster of earthquakes that began in December of 1811 and continued into February 1812, referred to as the ’1811-1812 Earthquake Series’ and one of the worst in this country’s history, the New Madrid Fault shook so hard that church bells on the east coast started ringing. People as far away as New York City and Boston could feel the rumbling. One tremor, located almost exactly under the spot where Memphis is found today, shook so hard the river appeared to flow upstream. As Wiki states,

“The future location of Memphis, Tennessee was shaken at Mercalli level nine intensity. Local uplifts of the ground and water waves moving upstream gave the illusion that the river was flowing upstream. At New Madrid, trees were knocked down and riverbanks collapsed. This event shook windows and furniture in Washington, D.C., rang bells in Richmond, Virginia, sloshed well water and shook houses in Charleston, South Carolina, and knocked plaster off of houses in Columbia, South Carolina. In Jefferson, Indiana, furniture moved and in Lebanon, Ohio, residents fled their homes.”

A similar earthquake today would be devastating, and would likely result in thousands of deaths, billions of dollars of damage to structures and critical infrastructure, and the displacement of millions of people. Indeed, it would be an earthquake event of biblical proportions. Which is why, of course, people that live in this region of the country are becoming increasingly concerned.

It doesn’t help that recent earthquakes have rattled the ground and nerves of Arkansans, plus the unexplained fish and bird deaths which have pockmarked the same region have people all-a-jitter. All of this has understandably sparked wild and fanciful, and in some cases outlandish speculation as to what might be really going on. From HAARP testing, to a 2012 pole shift, to oil industry gas ‘fracking’ gone amok, to biblical End Times geophysical volatility, the wild-eyed conspiratorial musings about the New Madrid fault zone would be downright hilarious were it not for one small exception…and that exception is that it appears as if FEMA has taken a sudden interest in the New Madrid Fault and is actively planning for a potentially devastating event.

In late January 2011, FEMA distributed a series of RFIs (Request For Information) to potential vendors to provide food, blankets, fuel and other resources in the event of a New Madrid earthquake. The language in the request is sobering, “The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations.” FEMA is essentially soliciting a vendor (or vendors) to provide in excess of 14 million meals for a New Madrid event, for ten days.

That’s right — 140 million meals.

Conspiracy theories aside, the timing of these requests are strangely coincident with the earthquakes and widespread bird and fish kill in the region, which, not surprisingly, has caused this thing to go viral. And even a rational mind has to stop and meditate on the timing of these requests.

Keep in mind, FEMA is paid to look for potential risks and then take appropriate steps to mitigate the associated hazards. Preparing for the low-probability, high-consequence event is what they do (or at least what they should be doing). So, taking steps to prepare for a New Madrid event seems both logical and responsible. But…the question nevertheless begs, why now? What changed in 2011 to cause FEMA to suddenly take the New Madrid seriously, given that the hazard has been there for hundreds of years?

Is there a relationship between the dramatic increase in seismic events in northern Arkansas, the bizarre die off of birds and fish in the same area, and the sudden interest in the New Madrid Fault zone by FEMA?

Is all this coincidence or conspiracy?

And that gnawing uncertainty appears to be motivating a lot of people into action.

Whether there is anything to the timing or not, it is always best to be prepared.

Consequence Assessment, or “If you thought Hurricane Katrina was big…”

This is from the Virginia Tech article:

The results indicate that Tennessee, Arkansas, and Missouri are most severely impacted. Illinois and Kentucky are also impacted, though not as severely as the previous three states. Nearly 715,000 buildings are damaged in the eight-state study region. About 42,000 search and rescue personnel working in 1,500 teams are required to respond to the earthquakes. Damage to critical infrastructure (essential facilities, transportation and utility lifelines) is substantial in the 140 impacted counties near the rupture zone, including 3,500 damaged bridges and nearly 425,000 breaks and leaks to both local and interstate pipelines. Approximately 2.6 million households are without power after the earthquake. Nearly 86,000 injuries and fatalities result from damage to infrastructure. Nearly 130 hospitals are damaged and most are located in the impacted counties near the rupture zone. There is extensive damage and substantial travel delays in both Memphis, Tennessee, and St. Louis, Missouri, thus hampering search and rescue as well as evacuation. Moreover roughly 15 major bridges are unusable. Three days after the earthquake, 7.2 million people are still displaced and 2 million people seek temporary shelter. Direct economic losses for the eight states total nearly $300 billion, while indirect losses may be at least twice this amount.

They do mention loss of nuclear facilities…but only to do with the impact of losing the electrical power they generate, in a quick re-reading, I can’t find anything about radiation releases. Those facilities are built like iron fortresses, but I doubt they could withstand the 7.7 quake they are calling for in this simulation.

Gee, I wonder where FEMA plans to put 2 million people seeking temporary shelter? (Written by Ginny in an email response)

The epicenter will likely be near the 3 towns in the triangulated area!!!!

***UPDATE 2/2/11***

HAARP ACTIVITY for 2/1/11 and 2/2/11 –

SNOW STORM CAUSED BY HAARP!!! Lots of activity in the New Madrid Fault Region.

SOIL LIQUEFACTION [link to en.wikipedia.org]

THIS IS PART OF THE EARTHQUAKE PREPARATION PROCESS. They just finished dumping over TWO FEET of snowfall that fell mostly over the New Madrid Fault.

When the snow melts and the soil liquefies this will help in triggering the major earthquake some people have been predicting.

They used HAARP to manufacture the storm, Fema is preparing for it!!

The “oil volcano” unleashed by the BP oil spill renewed seismic activity in that part of the world. ALL PLANNED!!

Those large magnitude 7 earthquakes in the past year that displaced the tectonic plates are something to worry about. If the crust has been shifted downwards by several meters along a fault line of 1000+ miles for a width of a mile or more, that’s going to displace some volume of underlying magma, which is going to go somewhere else

It also depends on whether the ground is soft or hard (they are making sure it’s soft) as well as the depth of the earthquake and the polarization of the shock waves (vertical, horizontal).

When sediments liquefy, they lose their structure and strength. During earthquake shaking, the individual grains of sand within a deposit collapse on each other.

Anything built on them can sink or collapse.

Picture a container of balls of slightly different sizes–baseballs, golf balls, marbles. If they were transported by water into the container and then deposited, they would settle with spaces between them. Some of the spaces would be filled with water, some with air. When you shake the container, the balls settle against each other, and the water and air are forced to the surface. That is exactly what happens in a sediment-filled valley. The valley is a large container holding gazillions of balls or grains of sand. Shaking the container simulates an earthquake.

Interesting to note is the United States Army announced last week that it is holding a rare training event involving the US Military, the CIA, Canadian officers, US Treasury and State departments, the US Agency for International Development, the Defense Threat Readiness Agency and the International Red Cross between March 21-25 at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and which should the worst happen they will certainly be prepared for it.
[link to www.kansascity.com]

When the New Madrid fault is triggered by HAARP there is also a branch fault zone that runs off it and that could be triggered as well. Due to HAARP, the destabilizing of the Gulf of Mexico seafloor bed, and what could result. If you destabilize the sea floor in the gulf (BP oil spill) then totally collapse the sea floor (with a nuke), and then use HAARP to activate weak areas of the New Madrid and its branch line the Wabash Valley.


Then you can create a dreaded double mega quake. Because the New Madrid and Wabash Valley can be activated by the Caribbean plate being disturbed. The Wabash Valley could be set off by HAARP targeting its parent fault zone the New Madrid. Wabash Valley could produce a 7.5 in Illinois with the same variables as New Madrid. Meaning that a 7.5 there is much stronger than a 7.5 anywhere else.

If the US military were to set off a nuke now, at the BP oil cap, and then were to put HAARP into kill mode at New Madrid, we are talking about something that is biblical in nature. We are talking about something equivalent to a 10.2 earthquake if it happened in California, Chile, Alaska, Cascadia, Indonesia.

We are talking about a quake cluster sequence that could destroy even the Great Lakes region and that could flood the entire center of the US and that could permanently split North America into two separate islands.

New Madrid fault is sitting on a failed rift valley! Mississippi River flows on this rift zone. A place where the North American continent almost split into two pieces. BP has been drilling, punctured a hole in the rift on the edge of the seismic zone in the Gulf. Convenient timing, they are starting up the stories again about the oil leaking from fractured sea floor. [link to 204.74.214.194] (Godlike thread title – BREAKING NEWS: 100 x 25 mile oil slick seen leaking from fractured sea floor near Deepwater Horizon). They will say that the only way to stop the oil from seeping out will be to nuke it. NOTE: There is more methane coming up instead of oil. What happens when you nuke methane on the edge of a unstable rift and use HAARP at the same time???? KABOOM!!! BIBLICAL EARTHQUAKE!!

What in the world is happening in the middle of the United States right now? Thousands of birds are falling dead from the skies, tens of thousands of fish are washing up on shore dead, earthquakes are popping up in weird and unexpected places and people are starting to get really freaked out about all of this. Well, one theory is that the New Madrid fault zone is coming to life. The New Madrid fault zone is six times bigger than the San Andreas fault zone in California and it covers portions of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. The biggest earthquakes in the history of the United States were caused by the New Madrid fault. Now there are fears that the New Madrid fault zone could be coming to life again, and if a “killer earthquake” does strike it could change all of our lives forever.

So exactly what events have happened recently that are causing people to take a close look at the New Madrid fault zone? Well, just consider the following examples of things that have been popping up in the news lately….

*According to the U.S. Geological Survey, more than 500 measurable earthquakes have been recorded in central Arkansas just since September.

*A magnitude-3.8 earthquake that shook north-central Indiana on December 30th is being called “unprecedented”. It was strong enough to actually cause cracks along the ground and it was felt in portions of Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kentucky.

*More than 3,000 red-wing blackbirds fell out of the sky dead in the Arkansas town of Beebe on New Year’s Eve.

*Large numbers of dead birds were also found in Kentucky right around Christmas.

*Approximately 500 dead blackbirds and starlings were also recently discovered in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana.

*Approximately 100,000 fish washed up dead on the shores of the Arkansas River just last week.

So could all of these things have some other very simple explanation?

Possibly.

But the fact that they all happened in or around the New Madrid fault zone is starting to raise some eyebrows.

About 200 years ago, in 1811 and 1812, there were four earthquakes that were so powerful in the area of the New Madrid fault zone that they are still talked about today. All four of the quakes were estimated to have been magnitude-7.0 or greater. It is said that those earthquakes opened deep fissures in the ground, caused the Mississippi River to run backwards and that they were felt as far away as Boston.

The last major earthquake to hit the region was a 5.4-magnitude quake that struck the town of Dale, Illinois in 1968. Things have been strangely quiet in the region since then until recently.

If a true “killer earthquake” struck along the New Madrid fault zone today, cities such as St. Louis, Missouri and Memphis, Tennessee could potentially be completely destroyed.

Unfortunately, this is not an exaggeration.

The following video describes just how incredibly powerful the earthquakes along the New Madrid fault in 1811 and 1812 actually were….

So could such a thing happen today?

Well, that is exactly what many seismologists now fear. The following video news report from ABC News explains why so many scientists are so concerned about the New Madrid fault zone….

One interesting theory is that the “oil volcano” unleashed by the BP oil spill in 2010 may have sparked renewed seismic activity in that part of the world.

Jack M. Reed, a retired Texaco geologist-geophysicist, has been carefully studying the geology of the Gulf of Mexico for over 40 years. Reed is convinced that the Gulf of Mexico is currently tectonically active, and that the Gulf of Mexico is the source for most seismic activity along the New Madrid fault.

According to Reed, there is substantial evidence that the New Madrid fault zone is directly connected to “deeply buried tectonics” in the Gulf of Mexico….

“This entire zone through the United States is suffering some type of tectonic activity that I believe is tied to the deeply buried tectonics in the Gulf of Mexico.”

So did BP disturb those “deeply buried tectonics” by drilling such a deep well and unleashing all that oil that flowed into the Gulf of Mexico?

Let’s hope not.

If a truly historic earthquake did strike along the New Madrid fault the amount of damage that could be done to surrounding states such as Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Indiana, Alabama, Missouri, Arkansas and Tennessee could potentially be unimaginable.

Jeremy Heidt of the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency says that life in the region would be instantly transformed in the event of a major earthquake along the New Madrid fault….

“All communications would be out. All air travel would be out as the FAA air control would go down. All rail travel would fail. Ports would shut down; oil and natural gas pipelines could be off line.”

According to a recent study by the University of Illinois, a 7.7-magnitude earthquake along the New Madrid fault would leave 3,500 people dead, more than 80,000 injured and more than 7 million homeless.

So what would happen if an 8.0 earthquake struck?

Or an 8.5?

Or a 9.0?

Remember, an 8.7-magnitude earthquake would be ten times worse than a 7.7-magnitude earthquake.

There are even some who believe that if a powerful enough earthquake hit the New Madrid fault someday it could potentially alter the surrounding geography enough that it could actually create a new major body of water in the middle of the United States.

So, no, it is not just California that needs to worry about “the Big One“.

Right now seismic activity has been dramatically increasing all over the globe. Just think of the unprecedented number of volcanic eruptions that we have seen over the past year. Major earthquakes have been popping up all along the “Ring of Fire“. Just over the past couple of days a magnitude-7.1 earthquake hit central Chile and a magnitude-7.0 earthquake struck northern Argentina.

So to think that “it can’t happen” in the United States is just being totally naive.

Let us hope and pray that a devastating earthquake does not hit the New Madrid fault any time soon, because such an event could completely wipe out our economy. The U.S. economy is already teetering on the brink of disaster, and all it would take is one major blow to bring the entire house of cards crashing down.

Just remember what happened in Haiti. A magnitude-7.0 earthquake killed 230,000 people and caused such horrific devastation that it is still hard to even try to put it into words. Let us hope and pray that nothing like that happens in any U.S. city any time soon.

Is the New Madrid fault dying? A few college professors have declared it dying. They’ve been saying this for more than a decade, but the reports resurface as news every several months. The latest (from the same folks) is a July 2010 article in Nature Magazine saying that flooding from glacier melt washed away lots of topsoil, causing a springing-rebound effect that caused the 1811-12 big ones.

Here’s a post-Haiti wrap on whether the fault is dying. Also see differing expert opinions below. Consider the financial headache of planners unsure how stringent the construction codes should be. A few million dollars’ extra safety construction is enough to steer potential industry elsewhere. We may see increasing public argument on how much government money (that we don’t have) should be spent prepping for another series of New Madrid “big ones” (above magnitude seven).

Casting doubt – A June 2010 AP story says a new study casts doubt that the New Madrid fault zone unleashed a series of quakes in 1811-12. We believe the story is highly misleading. The study is five years old, and its author says she did not intend to imply such.

The 1811-12 quakes were only M 7.0 or so, not in the high sevens or eights, concludes researcher Susan Hough in spring, 2010. Maybe the ringing church bells were in Charleston, SC, not the Charlestown area of Boston. Charleston, SC is 600 air miles, not 1,000, and is in low-lying seacoast, more prone to amplify the shaking.

Suggesting these are just aftershocks and therefore (the New Madrid fault) is dead doesn’t follow,” says Susan Hough of the USGS (11/09). “We have a seismic zone that produces earthquake clusters. The odds that it has shut off are pretty low.”

You don’t want to be so open-minded that your brains fall out.” – Hough

“Saying that earthquakes will suddenly stop in an area that has had numerous large earthquakes in the past is an extraordinary claim. Extraordinary claims need extraordinary evidence. We simply do not have the deep understanding necessary to make a prediction like this.”

“As scientists, we will play with all sorts of ideas trying to understand why earthquakes occur. However, as responsible citizens, we need to rely on the consensus process to give the public our best estimate of hazard. The consensus exists.”

It is there for government officials, emergency planners and the public to use. Please don’t mistake ongoing scientific debate as lack of consensus.”

Charles A. Langston is director of the Center for Earthquake Research and Information at the University of Memphis. 2/5/10 Memphis Commercial Appeal guest editorial

2/10 – Missouri’s Governor convened a panel of officials in New Madrid who are on the front line of emergency response. From AP:

Missouri state geologist Joe Gillman said an earthquake the magnitude of the 1811-12 quakes is expected to happen just once every 500 years. But a moderate quake with a magnitude 6.0 to 6.5 is expected to happen every 90 years, and the last one was in the late 1800s.

We are due, if not overdue, for a moderate-sized earthquake,” Gillman said. “Such a quake could devastate power lines and underground water and wastewater pipes, and many buildings could crumble.”

PBS / NOVA: “The rocks reveal a pattern of violent Midwestern earthquakes stretching back at least 15,000 years. The 1811, 1812 quakes weren’t a freak one-time event. And if they happened many times before, then they will probably happen again.”

Two newly-discovered faults nearby. Marianna, Ark., and:Porter’s Gap / Meeman-Shelby fault – 30 mi. long, along bluffs NW of Memphis.

Evidence of a significant shake 2,000 years ago. “We don’t know whether the fault is inactive or quiescent. Faults like this, far away from the plate boundaries, have a long repeat time. They might be quiescent for 1,000 to 3,500 years and then, all of a sudden, trigger a magnitude 8.0.”
Maria Beatrice Magnani, CERI, Mar 2010

“All of the experts on our committee, other state agencies that we’ve talked to, other structural engineers and seismologists agree that the threat of an earthquake in the New Madrid area is great and still exists, and that we should do everything we can to prepare for that and to try to mitigate the effects of an event like that.” -Ark. State Police Lt. Lindsey Williams, to a state legislative committee. – Jan. 2008

Missouri quake insurance Feb 2010

The New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) lies directly above an ancient failed rift, the New Madrid Fault. About 550 million years ago, a rift began to form under the present day site of New Madrid [Vogel, 1996].

For unknown reasons, the rift failed and subsequently became filled with sediment. Similarly, 180 million years ago, as the Atlantic Ocean began to open, a rift developed near present day Charleston. This rift was successful. Over the next 180 million years, the margin of continental North America moved thousands of kilometers away from the spreading center, but the crust around Charleston, known as a passive margin, remains faulted [Johnston and Kanter, 1990].

The New Madrid (MAD’rud) Seismic Zone, midway between St. Louis and Memphis, has a history of shaking violently, about every 500 years. When it shook for three months in 1811-12, this was the western frontier, and the population was sparse. If it shook with that magnitude again, the devastation would make Hurricane Katrina look “like a Sunday School picnic.”

The New Madrid fault system is a series of faults several miles below the surface. Experts say we’re overdue for a “6” like the one in 1895 which shook down buildings in the Charleston, Mo. area. The “big ones” of 1811-12 were probably “7”s, accompanied by a few thousand smaller ones over 4-6 months.

Each unit of the Richter Scale is a tenfold increase in the relative size of an earthquake. A magnitude 6.0 is ten times the size of a magnitude 5.0, and one hundred times the size of a 4.0. But energy release is a different matter. A magnitude 6.0 releases 32 times more energy than a magnitude 5.0, and about one thousand times more energy than a magnitude 4.0 — CERI

Tectonic plates rubbing – graphicMost earthquakes happen when the edges of continent-sized pieces of rock called “tectonic plates” rub against each other. But New Madrid is in the middle of such a plate.

Differing expert opinions – from Nature.com magazine, 2005

Dangerous, yes | Not threatening

Two sharply conflicting press releases within four minutes of each other on Dec. 11th. 2006:

We urge you to take the newsworthiness of this “with a grain of salt“. Calais has focused on the rebound from the weight of ancient glaciers (2005) as causing quakes. Stein has said many times (1999, 2007) NMSZ is “dying”. Zoback (2006). Dr. Mian Liu at Mizzou says quakes, like lightning, never strike twice in same place.
Silent Night, nine days before Christmas, 1811

The famous earthquakes of the New Madrid region began early on December 16th, 1811. The weather was “indian summer,” a mild 45 degrees (Yes, people were keeping diaries). The stars were almost brighter than the visible sliver of the new moon. Without warning, after 2 a.m. the rocks violently shifted, a few miles below the surface, west of the present Blytheville, Arkansas. map

At 8 a.m., another large shift took place, near the present Cooter and Steele, Missouri. Then at 11 a.m., beneath the present Caruthersville, it happened again. These quakes are in the magnitude range of 7.3 – 8.0 for the 3 main shocks of the 1811-12 sequence (CERI, 2005). Big Lake, just west of Blytheville, was formed on this day.

*
* “(first shake) lasted about a minute… made [residents] totter as though they were on ship board in a heavy swell of the sea” – Savannah Ga
* Lasted from three to five minutes… rattling of glass and furniture was so great as to rouse every family in town.” Knoxville Tn
* [Feb quake] jerking was often repeated and violent. It seemed as if some monstrous weight had rolled or swung almost out of the power of the force which was restraining it. Newbern NC
* [ Dec. quake felt in river bottoms near Buffalo NY ] Husband thought he was having a fit. Wife thought house was on fire. Bells rang through the house. Door, kettle, clothes swung. Felt like house was moving two feet back and forth. Several neighbors felt same. No wind or noise. Would like to account for this on rational principles. (see Newbern NC link)

The population on this western end of the country was still sparse. St. Louis had about 1,200 people, all living in the rock-based Laclede‘s Landing area now near its arch and the river. The future Memphis would not be handed over from the Chickasaws until 1818.

Jan. 1812

Five weeks later, about 8 a.m. January 23, 1812, another big shake struck, north of Caruthersville. The town of Point Pleasant, southeast of Marston, on a point of land sticking into the Mississippi River, completely crashed into the river and was swept away without a trace. The townspeople had all fled, a month earlier. because of the tremors. Eyewitnesses. Little Prairie, near Caruthersville, had a similar fate.

The Granddaddy Quake – Feb. 1812

Perhaps the biggest quake came two weeks later, in the early hours of February 7th, 1812. The dip-slip motion may have produced the strongest quake ever recorded in the United States.

Researcher Otto Nuttli wrote that this quake caused 60 miles of the New Madrid Fault to rupture. This caused waterfalls on the Mississippi, and the river to run backwards for several hours, in the river bends just northeast of New Madrid. This quake also created Reelfoot Lake in Northwest Tennessee.

Today an 800-foot power generation smokestack in St. Jude Industrial Park at Marston (just south of New Madrid, good photo) marks the approximate center of that quake. This could someday become a monument to dumb engineering. There are others.

An AECI – Associated Electric – power plant worker told us they feel a quake in the plant about once a month, amid the turbines and industrial atmosphere, but “everyone is used to it.” The power plant employs 200, and can burn a train load of coal per day. A huge Noranda aluminum processing plant alongside, directly employs more than 1100 people.
Constant Shaking” for five months

There may have been two thousand quakes during these five months of 1811-12. Researchers Ray Knox and David Stewart, in “The New Madrid Fault Finders Guide” say any one of them would make front-page news today. The book describes land deformations from the quakes that may not be obvious to a new observer.

There were no seismographs then. Researchers estimate the strength by studying damage accounts and sandboils. Older texts refer to the the 1811-12 quakes as above 8 on the Richter scale. The Richter scale saturates and does not read the highest intensities, well. A revised magnitude scale estimates them as high 7’s.

The tectonic plate under the New Madrid area was almost pulled apart perhaps more than once, hundreds of millions of years ago. The pulling created a weak zone called a “failed rift”. If it had been separated, the New Madrid area might be on the Atlantic seaboard, and the southeastern US might be attached to Africa. A more recent rift is the Red Sea, separating Africa from Saudi Arabia.

150 -200 Rattles a Year

The New Madrid Fault now rattles its area 150 or more times a year. Many are three to ten miles deep. More on quake depths. Most of the shakes are less than 3.0 in magnitude, cause no damage, and may be felt only for a few miles.

A quake of magnitude four starts making serious news. A “four” quake can be expected every couple of years.

A quake with a six reading on the magnitude scale is serious within 50-100 miles. A six is expected every hundred years. The three “big ones” of the winter of 1811-12 (magnitudes above seven) were felt in Massachusetts and Virginia.

There’s one report that President James Madison felt the 1811-12 quakes and thought intruders were in the White House.

A catastrophic quake, above magnitude seven, can be expected about every 500 years, though scientists say there’s about a ten percent chance of one happening anytime in any 50-year period. Scientists find evidence of big quakes dating to 4000 BC and further, even though the river has washed away much of the older evidence. source

It is not uncommon to have perhaps three small quakes, magnitude 1.5 – 2.0 reported in this area in a single day in the counties surrounding New Madrid and across the river in Lake or Dyer County, Tn. Few people notice. Here’s the last week’s worth.

A resident just north of New Madrid may have a typical reaction to the threat. She told us she “never” feels quakes and is not concerned. She sees the weekly quake list in the local paper, and calmly says “most are over in Tennessee,” perhaps thinking of the 90-minute drive by car. But the prime Tennessee earthquake counties are only 15 air miles from her home.

Sand boils, liquefaction, disappearing highways

Liquefaction is difficult for newcomers to grasp. It can cause a section of heavy interstate highway, or your house to disappear into the sandy soil when the subsurface sand becomes water-saturated, loses its friction, and pressure is applied. Builders also are slow to learn the lesson.

Human casualties could be in the thousands, per county.

I55-155 junction, Caruthersville, an easy candidate for liquefaction. Planners expect sections of I-55 which connects St. Louis and Memphis to be unusable in the Bootheel after a major quake because of liquefaction on roads and bridges.
Pipelines

Some major refined oil and natural gas pipelines go in and near the area (see map), connecting the petroleum fields of Louisiana and Oklahoma to the chilly northeastern states. The MO emergency planning folks say three major lines run through Missouri’s Bootheel. Two pipelines pass through Dexter.

Highway engineers in 2005 replaced a section of Interstate highway near Charleston, Mo. with pre-cast sections trucked from Memphis. The method may be used again in case of Bootheel liquefaction.

Rail, air, trucking, river distribution of goods in Memphis area is key to the nation. Contingency planning, business continuity, disaster recovery are growing topics of interest. Ask cusec.org

An “earthquake trail” for the tourism industry is being considered.

Wrinkling the mattress?

North American glacier
Glaciers, which came as far south as Carbondale, Illinois, then receded back northward perhaps 20 times over the last two million years might have caused underground pressure, like pushing on the end of a mattress, that further wrinkled the tectonic plate that was already cracked when it tried to pull apart much earlier. Search “illinoian ice” or “laurentide ice“.

The National Park Service says a continental glacier covered North America 18,000 years ago. Its gradual melting period from 12,000 to 7,500 years ago, was the last in a series of continental glaciers that have formed and then receded over the last 25 million years. –nps.gov

The Spill of National Significance emergency exercise in 2007 simulated multiple oil and hazardous materials spills caused by a strong earthquake along the New Madrid fault line.

Illinois Basin

The Illinois Basin including Indiana and Kentucky contains about 86 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. It remains largely undeveloped due to poorly developed pipeline infrastructure and, until very recently, public policy that permitted meaningful gas production data to remain obscure from public inspection.

The Rough Creek Fault System in West Kentucky is the easternmost end of the giant New Madrid Fault System. For commercial shale gas production, faults can provide trapping mechanisms and fractures provide permeability pathways that allow gas (and oil and water) to move around inside the reservoir. Understanding the location, orientation and intensity of local faults and fractures systems is an essential science in commercial shale gas production. more

Are Shallow Earthquakes Associated with the New Madrid Fault & BP’s Mega Oil Spill?

by BK Lim
23 Feb 2011
[email protected]

Is there a common factor between the quake off Fort Morgan on 18 Feb 2010 and the recent swarm of quakes occurring in the vicinity of the New Madrid Fault zone? You are right if the BP Mega Oil spill and the Deepwater Horizon blowout on 20 April 2010 come to mind.

They are all quakes similar to the disastrous 22 Feb 2011 quake that occured close to Christshurch in New Zealand. Their shallow epicentres are off the main tectonic (or intra-plate) main fault lines. There are significant differences though, especially in magnitude and tectonic plate settings. The recent NZ disaster was more devastating than an earlier quake 11 times more powerful with its epicentre on the plate margin.

Since the 2 Aug 2010 quake at Louisiana, we have been warning of more occurrences of such shallow low magnitude quakes. See figure 145-1 which shows some of the hidden series of NW-SE strike-slip fault lines typical of intra-plate movement. The fault chart (prepared in August and updated only with annotations) was only published on 10 Nov 2010, Update On BP Rigs Location & the Fault Connection. The consequence of the continuing corosive erosion along these faults by leaking hydrocarbons from deep reservoirs (not only from the Macondo prospect) is the release in stresses between the upper and lower crust; resulting in shallow quakes of generally low magnitude. This was mentioned in a recent article, first written on 14 Feb and updated 20 Feb 2011.

Silencing The Independent Voices Of Truth On The BP’s Mega Oil Spill GOM

For millions of years, the southeastern part of the North American tectonic plate (south-east of the New Madrid Fault line) has been thrusting in a northeasterly direction while the western half of the plate has been moving south along the San Andreas fault line. This is the main reason for the present gulf seabed morphology.

The resultant torsion tension is reflected by the fault pattern illustrated in a previous article, BP’s Rigs Location & Fault Connection. Besides lateral stresses, vertical stresses also developed between the upper and lower section of the tectonic blocks due to differential upper and lower slide movement. The abnormal occurrences of hundreds of shallow and low magnitude earthquakes since the Macondo blowout are the direct consequence of the continual release of these pent-up stress zones. FEMA recently sent out RFI (request for information) to identify vendors for the emergency supply of food rations, various fuels and hydration in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault system for a survivor population of 7 million to be utilised for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations. Is FEMA responding to privileged information of an impending disaster in the New Madrid Fault area, 9 months after the BP’s Mega-oil Spill disaster?

What is the area extent of these continuing leakages of hydrocarbons along these faults , vaporisation of methane hydrates due to warming effect of these leaking hydrocarbons and rapid mass depletion caused by continuing sub-seabed erosion? Judging by the number of reported quake-swarms, we are pretty close to the point of no return if we have not passed that point yet.

So far the quakes had been low magnitude between 2 to 4 on the Richter Scale. FEMA is expecting a major quake disaster similar to the recent Christchurch Quake in New Zealand. As we have seen, the shallow quakes are more devastating than a deep one at the base of the crust. The New Madrid Fault is an intra-plate tectonically stressed zone. It behaves very differently from the tectonic plate margins.

Since these shallow intra-plate quakes had been unleashed by the drilling and blowouts at the Macondo prospect, it makes sense to monitor closely the seafloor and the continental shelf edges. Mapping the gas vents in the vicinity of these faults and shelf edges would go a long way to making accurate predictions of what to expect in the vicinity of the New Madrid Fault zone. More powerful need not necessarily be more devastating but one thing is for sure, the disaster has not ended yet despite what you have been told. Christchurch was hit by a hidden fault (???)

New_Zealand_Earthquake_Science By ALICIA CHANG, AP Science Writer–Tue Feb22

No one died in that early morning quake — which was 11 times stronger — mainly because it was centered farther away, about 30 miles west of the city center. It was also twice as deep as Tuesday’s aftershock. Shallower quakes tend to be more damaging.

LOS ANGELES – The latest New Zealand earthquake was a deadly combination of distance, depth and timing. While weaker than the one that rocked the area last September, it did more damage and cost lives, primarily because of its location. Tuesday’s magnitude-6.3 quake was centered about 3 miles from the populated hub of Christchurch, toppling buildings, killing dozens and trapping others. It was also only about 3 miles deep and occurred during the middle of a workday when commercial buildings were filled with employees.The jolt “is squarely beneath the city itself,” said seismologist Egill Hauksson of the California Institute of Technology. “All the old historic buildings are being shaken more violently than they were built to withstand.” Scientists classified it as an aftershock of the powerful magnitude-7 that struck last Sept. 4.

INTRODUCTION- WORRY ABOUT NOTHING: PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING!

Andrew Strom wrote an excellent introductory article entitled “Disasters Where?”, concerning many aspects of God’s judgement as it begins to fall upon the United States. Reading this one article alone will help the reader to see just how many witnesses God has sent to warn us that terrible troubles are almost upon us and that their effect will be felt all over America:

THE PROPHETIC WITNESSES

This has now become the gateway page to all of the prophecy information that is available on my website regarding earthquakes in the Central Regions of the United States, around the New Madrid fault area. Everything is now reachable from here.

This article has to do with the name “New Madrid”.

I am convinced that the vision Chuck Youngbrandt received early in his ministry was from the Lord. In this vision, he saw a terrible earthquake hit Chicago, and saw many other details, including the emptying out of Lake Michigan. He places this in time just prior to the invasion of the USA.

Chuck Youngbrandt-Chicago Earthquake/Tidal Wave/Flood

I wrote this article on this prophecy on May 5, 2003. This concerns a failed prediction that a Pastor Hinson made concerning this earthquake.

New Madrid Quake

Ann Peterson saw, in a vision, that America split into two land masses, after the impact of the three asteroids.

On January 19, 2004, Joseph Cook of Evansville, IN, received a series of inner visions and words that portray a future earthquake that will strike his hometown. This is an area very near to, and involved with, the New Madrid fault zone. He began to see the visions at about 3 A.M.. (The Lord confirmed to me through the Holy Spirit that this word and these visions are from Him-Stephen L. Bening) Check it here:

New Madrid Earthquake Prophecy Collection

Denise Love had a dream on July 3/4, 2007 about a terrible earthquake in Chicago. She sent it to me the next day, and it reminded me that a number of important prophecies have come out that indicate that earthquakes in the midwest are apparently going to begin in 2007. It ties in with other words about terrorist attacks, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. In sort, it describes the near onset of the whole deadly cocktail of tribulation. When you read all of these May, 2007 words together with her dream, you catch the sense of immediacy that the Lord is trying to communicate to us.

Denise Love: July 3/4 Dream Of Chicago Earthquake

Note From Stephen L. Bening-It is not unusual for accurate prophets and seers to miss a dated prophecy by a year or even a few years in the church age, when we have so many intercessors who are at work, laboring diligently in fastings and in prayer for delays of these very events.

I believe Daniel Bohler is a true seer-prophet. It would be very unwise to disregard Dr. Bohler’s words. In fact, I have a prophetic hunch that we might see fulfillment of his visions for St. Louis before the end of September, 2008. Be on your guard! (2010 note-I have left this one on here because there was a delay from the Lord late in 2008/early 2009, for the sake of His modern day Noah’s, as they were not yet ready. This one will happen at any time now)

Lindy Pierce of Kentucky has prophesied of this earthquake and believes it will strike Chicago with 9.5 intensity on June 9, 2009. June 9 is Sivan 17 on the Hebrew Calendar, which relates it to the number 17 that was seen in the Chuck Youngbrandt visions of this event in 1973. I cannot confirm the association of the June 9, 2009 date with the earthquake.(2010 note-I have left this one on here because there was a delay from the Lord late in 2008/early 2009, for the sake of His modern day Noah’s, as they were not yet ready. It may have pushed this one back as well, or Lindy erred as to timing. This Chicago event is one that will definitely occur. It could happen at any time now.)

Yearly Outlook Ahead: 2011 Trend Projections

What May Happen in 2011

Based Upon Projected Trends

Editor’s Note: Our annual look ahead into the New Year was delayed as ad deluge of new intelligence reports crossed our news desk requiring me to hold off on publishing our 2011 analysis until we could dig our way out from under the blizzard of developments until a few days ago. We’ve now had a chance to digest additional information and formulate what we suspect will be key trend developments in 2011. We do not predict actual events, but we consider the possibilities for certain events to transpire. We have refrained from making predictions that major Bible Prophecy events will take place in 2011, but as with any year, the possibilities for the fulfillment of major Biblical Prophecies remains viable. Frankly, not much would surprise us for 2011. In a word, we foresee 2011 as being very “chaotic” to say the least. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what may or may not happen in 2011.

Major Prophetic Fulfillments For 2011?

Reviewing Trends & Developments of 2010

ARE YOU READY FOR AN EMERGENCY?

Emergency Kits – Affordable and Customizable. Stay Safe!

The New World Order crowd began pushing their Global Agenda with full force in 2010. The Illuminists were able to significantly speed up their efforts to achieve a global government by their self-imposed, occult-oriented deadline of December, 2012. Their efforts were particularly visible with the implementation of new socialist laws and programs implemented in America during 2010, triggering a backlash among American voters. By comparison, Canada was much further advanced towards socialism and remarkably less affected by economic factors than America or Europe. In Mexico however, chaos reigns as the Latin American drug lords battle with the Mexican government for control of the nation.


At the same time, Europeans also began to display signs of rejecting the Globalist Agenda as economic conditions deteriorated across Europe. Violent protests emerged in economically hard-hit nations such as Greece, Italy, Portugal, France, Britain, and Ireland. German also saw emerging discontent from it’s citizens, fueled by resentment at the German government’s role as protector of EU’s Euro currency. The economic conditions across Europe are due in large measure to the socialistic systems developed over Europe since the end of World War 2. The installation of socialism in Europe was intended to become the model backbone for selling a New World Order to the rest of humanity. In 2010, average Europeans were feeling the shortcomings of economic socialism and many took to the streets to protest against the system.

Is resistance futile?

In Asia during 2010, capitalism was churning along fueled by massive government subsidies and a generous trading arrangement made possible by the Globalists keen on using slave labor. China and India were especially targeted for growth in the past decade, but as 2010 came to a close, the world’s economic doldrums threatened to derail economic growth across the entire continent, but especially in China. In order to survive

And to correct global currency imbalances, China began to provide currency support to the Euro in an effort to stabilize not only the EU but keep that market open to cheap Chinese goods and services.

Meanwhile, Russia continued to market its energy resources as a means for strategic security and positioning to eventually bring itself back as a leading super-power nation. Russia used 2010 to develop and expand its role as a mediator and arbiter for economic and geo-political disputes as a means to achieving greater geo-political power and super-power status.

The Middle East continued to function as always on the razor’s edge for war, fueled by Iranian efforts to acquire a nuclear weapon. It is the region targeted by the Illuminists to be the flashpoint for the next world war, which will become the catalyst for global government according to their long laid plans.

While South America has been slowly emerging as an economic powerhouse, the continent of Africa continues to languish in poverty and underdevelopment. Australia’s agricultural strength has been pounded by radical weather developments for the past several years in battles from drought and in late 2010 with flooding of nearly biblical proportions. Indeed, the entire planet is undergoing radical changes in both climate and geology. The year 2010 continued to support an ever growing trend of increased volcanic and earthquake activity.

All in all, 2010 was a year in which events continued to unfold, pointing towards massive fulfillment of Biblical Prophecies related to the end of the age of the gentiles and the Great Tribulation culminating with the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and His establishing of the Millennial Kingdom.

As we begin 2011, current trends that continued from previous years merged with new developments suggesting that perhaps the year of 2011 might be the year, which sees the fulfillment of major Biblical Prophecy. Only time will tell, but this report will point out that 2011 may indeed witness the beginning of major prophetic events leading to Christ’s Return and Reign on Earth in the near future. We will breakdown the year ahead by regions for geo-political developments and then look at the year ahead from a global perspective for economics, the environment and the Church. We’ll conclude with a look at key dates in 2011, which may or may not be associated with prophetic fulfillment.

Middle East Overview:

Newly emerging, conflicting information concerning the Middle East delayed our 2011 Trend Projections report, because the Middle East is where the focus on Prophecy is based because most of the prophecies focus on Israel. Israel is the central focus for Biblical Prophecy because God’s promises were centered on Israel and Satan’s strategy to defeat God is based upon breaking God’s promises to Israel and in doing so, defeat and overthrow God.

Iran’s Nuclear Program

The Middle East situation as we enter 2011 remains murky and very tense as Iran continues its quest to become not only a nuclear power but also as regional super-power. In doing so, Iran uses Israel as a catalyst and an excuse for building itself into an eventual world super power which introduces the entire world to Islam.

With Iran becoming Israel’s central enemy and treat, we need to consider what is going on with Iran and its leadership and its ongoing military weapons development programs. The situation concerning Iran remains very murky and muddled as we move into 2011. We continue to receive contradictory information concerning Iran in different aspects.

The nuclear weapons program is perhaps the most puzzling piece of the Iranian threat as it is shrouded in such a thick veil of secrecy that Western intelligence agencies simply cannot know for sure the extent of the program. The Iranians are suspected of having parallel secret programs. Only in the last few weeks, new indications have emerged suggesting that Iran has a secret program operating inside North Korea. Western experts now expect the Iranians and the North Koreans will conduct a nuclear bomb test this year, perhaps within a matter of weeks.

Western experts, especially, Israel’s top spymaster think Iran’s nuclear program has suffered such heavy setbacks in 2010 that Iran will be hard pressed to produce a nuclear weapon before 2015. Of course that is based on the assumption that there are no other secret Iranian programs. It is also predicated on the notion that North Korea has not or will not sell nuclear weapons to Iran and Israel’s head of intelligence has publicly acknowledged these alternatives are possible. Such possibilities leave Israel wary of Iran’s nuclear potential

As we’ve recently reported in our A-O Intelligence Digests, new data trends support the notions that Iran is indeed collaborating heavily with Iran to produce not merely an atomic weapon, but a more powerful plutonium missile warhead. There are also new indications that North Korea either has shipped or about to ship a much more sophisticated ballistic missile with a longer range, heavier payload and more accurately targeted ballistic missile. Such a missile is capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

Some experts believe this new missile; a solid fuel ballistic missile has a 3,000 kilometer range. There are reports surfacing that Iran has purchased 2 dozen of these missiles with half eventually headed for Iran and the other half headed for Venezuela, where that nation has agreed to share a joint missile base.

There are contradicting reports that a dozen missiles have already shipped to Venezuela during the recent exchange of artillery fire between North and South Korea. It is thought that the artillery barrage started by North Korea was a diversionary ruse to enable a North Korean freighter to slip out to sea and head for Venezuela, while another freighter headed for Iran.

The West’s Covert War with Iran

Western news media outlets have ignored the apparent covert war being waged by the United States, Britain and Israel against Iran. The primary thrust of this covert war is to stall and delay Iran’s nuclear weapons program with secondary thrusts focusing on damaging Iran’s military weapons development programs and communications abilities plus efforts to force regime change in part through internal strife.

In shutting down or delaying Iran’s nuclear program, the West turned to a new type of clandestine warfare – “cyber-war.” Within the past two years or so, Western intelligence agencies developed a special computer worm virus now dubbed as “Stuxnet” This computer worm virus introduced into Iran’s computer systems including those used for the nuclear program as well as for other military and government applications. The Stuxnet virus has proven itself to have been wildly successful in 2010.

Yet the Stuxnet virus is only part of the cyber-war going on. The Iranian regime has had trouble keeping its citizens from accessing the internet and reading international news sources. The regime also has trouble with computer savvy citizens communicating with the outside world via the internet. Additionally, international hackers are constantly challenging the security of the government’s computers. With each passing month, the regime’s computer security protection comes under ever-rising pressure from outside hackers.

Of course, the Iranian regime is also now forced to deal with widening internal dissent not only from its citizens, but also from within the regime itself. The ayatollahs are beginning to fracture into deep divisions about future government policies on a variety of issues, including the international sanctions, which are contributing to even greater citizen discontent with the government. What’s more, President Ahmadinejad’s most staunch support from the hierarchy within the Revolutionary Guards Corps has begun to wane. As the year 2010 ended, we learned that the top commanders of the Revolutionary Guards slapped and insulted Ahmadinejad for making what were deemed inappropriate compromises.

The Supreme Ayatollah’s support continues to wane within the clergy itself. Ayatollah Khamenei now enjoys only a sliver of popular support among the clerics, but the IRG Corps has yet to make a move to unseat the Supreme Leader, thus making him almost a puppet figure in all but the most critical areas dealing with the nuclear program.

President Ahmadinejad’s support began to show serious cracks among his most ardent supporters when he moved unilaterally to cut off government subsidies of key consumer items such as gasoline and increase rationing levels of supply shortfalls of consumer staples including food stuffs.

Western analysts are expecting some sort of regime change in the year ahead, but the question rotates around whether or a regime change will be civilian or a military change.

In the last three weeks, new indications have emerged to suggest that the Iran’s non-political military leaders might step forward and challenge the regime and the Revolutionary Guards leadership, triggering the distinct possibility of a civil war.

Western covert efforts to bring on a regime change from within the civilian population include assisting tribal forces which have organized into popular liberation fronts. These tribal rebels seek to break away from the Persian oriented government and form their own separate nations. Such a break up would ensure a very weak Iran that could become a puppet of the New World Order. The current regime is a loose cannon usually flaunting its independence from the Illuminati leadership.

At times, the regime follows the wishes of the Illuminists and at other times attempts to run interference with Illuminati programs for the Middle East region. For this reason, the Bilderberg group’s meeting in June of 2010 concluded that something will have to be done with an incalcitrant Iranian regime, namely regime change involving war. From what we understand, the Illuminists intend to use a war to not only reshape the Middle East but to make the war so horrible that the world will plead for a greater world government.

Even so, our understanding is that such a war must coincide at a precise time point for synchronizing with a collapse of the world’s currency system and the imminent collapse of the global economy. As we understand it, the timing for war should coincide suddenly at just the last minute before economic collapse. Our question is whether or not the NWO crowd has the capability to pull this off at the precise moment without things blowing up in their face as has happened in the past with their plans.

We understand this war was supposed to have transpired in 2006, but some of the “actors” involved didn’t follow through in playing their assigned roles, particularly Syrian President Assad.

Iran’s Proxy Forces

Syrian President Assad has become very skittish about his alignment with Iran. At the end of 2009, the Illuminists began a new campaign to persuade Syria to remove itself from the Iranian sphere of influence or face severe future consequences. The Syrian leader was made to understand that the Illuminists would one day squash Iran’s dream of empire. As 2009 ended, President Assad began backing away from Iranian plans to wage a war with Israel, using Hezbollah and Hamas.

Israeli leadership conveyed to Assad that any attempt to use WMD assets against Israel would result with an Israeli nuclear response that would forever destroy Damascus. Such pressure has caused Assad to become very cautious. In fact, as 2010 drew to a close, Assad seemed to become more neutral, pretending to be a staunch ally of Iran but maintaining a certain level of independence waiting to see which side would gain the upper hand so that Assad could then join the winning side.

The Illuminists have grown tired of Hezbollah’s belligerence. For awhile, the terror group served a worthwhile function to create chaos and deadlock in the Middle East, but now the group is but a thorn in the side of the globalist agenda. At the appropriate time, Israel will be given the green light to take on Hezbollah without kid gloves. It will be a no-holds-barred war that will most likely be short with the swift demise of both Hezbollah and Hamas. Knowing this has helped to create further divisions within the Iranian regime as to how best to respond to the Illuminati threat.

The Imminent Fulfillment of Daniel 9:27

Certain Israeli leaders have been green-lighted for permission to establish Jewish control over the Temple Mount in the coming war. There are indications that an Iranian missile salvo would involve an errant missile striking the two Muslim shrines on the Temple Mount, destroying them and enabling the Jews to clear the Mount and begin building a Third Temple within a matter of weeks after the initial destruction. There are plans for such destruction of the Muslim shrines whether Iran actually launches missiles or not. The destruction of the shrines could be blamed on Iranian missiles yet destroyed by covertly placing demolition explosives at key architectural points to ensure destruction yet but shift blame to Iran, Hezbollah or Hamas.

Open-air Temple sacrifices would be permitted even before Temple construction would begin. This would point to a major prophetic fulfillment of Daniel 9:27, culminating in the Abomination of Desolation just three and a half years later. Sources within Israel report that a new Temple could be constructed in two years or less. The resources to do so are simply waiting in the wings.

There are conflicting reports as to whether such a war will occur this spring, summer or fall The Bilderberg Group’s comments would indicate a war this spring. Lately, Israel’s top intelligence chief has suggested that due to internal “problems” with Iran’s nuclear program, the timetable for developing a nuclear weapon is now estimated to be 2015. Without specifically stating it, the Israeli intelligence attributes the problems to the “Stuxnet Virus.” Other reports note the Iran-North Korea partnership suggesting a bomb may be tested sometime this year in North Korea, possibly within weeks.

One report circulating around the D.C. beltway indicated that the Obama White House was preparing to send 2 additional aircraft carriers to the waters off of North Korea. According to different military sources, I’ve been told that should we learn that 5 aircraft carriers are being stationed off the North Korean coast; expect imminent military action against Korea. Should that transpire, expect Iran to take action. However, we should also expect that in such events, additional carriers would be ordered to the Mideast to deal with an expected Iranian response.

We have tried to follow up on these conflicting reports and determine the genuine likelihood of any scenario, but I cannot report anything tangible or definitive on the timing for war, or if indeed war plans are being shelved. In fact, shifting changes could force a roll back in plans until 2012 or thereafter.

At the Pre-Trib Prophecy Conference in Dallas, Texas back in early December, one attendee, Jimmy DeYoung reportedly told other attendees that in a recent, private conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli leader stated that Israel would no longer hold back from war with Iran if it was learned that Iran was about to explode a nuclear bomb or had made such a bomb. He also stated that another trigger point for war would be evidence that Hezbollah and or Hamas was about to launch war on Israel, in which case Israel would wage total war. Israel would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons if WMDs were used to attack Israel.

It is my considered opinion that any war with Iran, Hezbollah that also involved Turkish forces along with other Muslim allies may well be the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s Magog War Prophecies. This would be underscored by the fact that tensions are rising over Israel’s announced discoveries of major natural gas fields off the Israeli coastline. Lebanon, Syria and Turkey are both claiming they have rights to those natural gas deposits also. It is very feasible that an outbreak of war may emerge over who owns and controls those gas deposits.


Trends to Look For

For 2011: watch for reactions to an announcement by the UN of indictments against Hezbollah leaders. If this happens, there is a very good chance that Hezbollah will take military action to overthrow the Lebanese government and nullify the UN action.

French President Sarkozy recently contacted several European counterparts to discuss what military action the EU should take in the event Hezbollah takes military action.

Israel has quietly advised Syria that any such action will be deemed an act of war against Israel and that Israel would take appropriate military action. Syria was advised to stay out of the conflict.

Also look for renewed efforts to re-start peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel. At the same time, do not be surprised if the Palestinian Authority collapses if P/A Chairman Abbas makes good on his promise to resign from office and retire. It is believed that in such event, the P/A’s collapse would result in Hamas taking over the representation of the Palestinian people; thus ending any chances for peace talks.

Look for Israel to wage war against Hamas, IF, Hamas allows a resumption of rocket barrages into southern Israel. The Netanyahu government is looking for an excuse to take on Hamas and dismantle it.

Look for a further rift in relations between Turkey and Israel, despite efforts by the two nations to patch up their differences. The radical Muslim faction in Turkey has silenced opposition from the Turkish military chieftains, giving the radical Muslim politicians in Turkey a free hand to engage in provocative diplomacy to interact with Iran against Israel. Expect relations between Turkey and Israel to continue to deteriorate.

Look for Jordan to make tentative moves that would pacify Iran and Syria as those two nations continue to joust with Israel. I do not expect Jordan will join in any military action against Israel, however.

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah continues to recover from back surgery but the 87 year old monarch continues to reign in poor health. Rumors abound that he may abdicate the throne if he feels he can no longer carry out the duties as Monarch. Should he die this year, look for a power struggle to ensue, but at the moment, conservative family members who favor the West, seem to hold the upper hand to succeed the King.

Saudi Arabia now has a defacto nuclear deterrent in the form of two nuclear warhead missiles purchased from Pakistan. The Saudis feel confident that with such a deterrent they can keep Iran from overwhelming the Arabian Peninsula. At the same, the Saudis now recognize that Iran has won the battle for control of Iraq.

Look for Iran to consolidate its hold on Iraq in 2011, now that a new government has formed with Iran’s assistance. Prime Minister al-Maliki is now beholden to the Sheikh Moqtada Sadr’s militia forces who just recently threw their political support behind the Prime Minister in exchange for certain promises geared to ensure the militia remains the dominant force in Iraq. Look for Sunni Muslims to be forced into major territory concessions or face civil war. In the meantime, the Kurds may well respond by declaring their independence, triggering a new crisis with Turkey and Iran. This could result in a short war between the Kurds fighting against both Iran and Turkey.

In Afghanistan, look for further gains by the Taliban as U.S. surge forces begin to be withdrawn if the White House promise to begin troop withdrawals holds. If so, it’s only a matter of time until the Taliban regain control of Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, over in Pakistan, the civil turmoil continues with the Taliban seeking to over throw the Pakistani government. The recent assassination of a Pakistani governor demonstrates the precarious position that the civilian government now finds itself. Do not be surprised if the current government collapses, plunging the nation into new round of chaos that could result in the Pakistan nuclear weapons inventory falling into the hands of radical Muslims. Should that happen, the entire region will be plunged into chaos and enhance the chances for an eventual nuclear exchange.

Finally, look for chaos to emerge in Egypt. Egyptian President Mubarak is suffering from terminal cancer and is slotted to give up power in 2011. It remains unclear who is successor will be but whoever succeeds him will find a challenge from radical Muslims residing in Egypt. By the end of the year, it’s entirely possible that radical Muslims could take control of Egypt.

Europe & the Middle East

The European Union is poised for an economic collapse as its currency, the Euro, continues to deteriorate in the world’s currency markets. Many economists and currency traders are concerned that the Euro could collapse and disintegrate within the first two or three months of 2011. Various bond auctions are slated for January and concern grows that Portugal and Spain will soon be forced to default, creating another crisis much like what happened with Greece and Ireland only far worse.

Trends To Watch For

Various European cities have been exposed to riots in the streets last year and with economic conditions continuing to deteriorate, expect more riots and chaos across Europe, especially if and or when the Euro collapses upon itself in the currency markets.

2011 will be the year of intense trial and tribulation for Europe along economic lines that will carry over into political chaos and turmoil.

Look for continued civil turmoil throughout Europe if economic conditions deteriorate.

Look for nations in economic turmoil to experience not only riots but regime changes in emergency elections.

Look for France, Germany and Britain to stand by ready to intervene in any Lebanon crisis. They would join with America in dispatching military combat forces to the region to forestall an Israeli invasion of Lebanon, should Hezbollah attempt to stage a coup against the Lebanese government.

There are late indications as the New Year begins that China has signaled that it is prepared to support and purchase EU bonds to stabilize the Euro currency and preserve consumer demand for Chinese products to avoid a collapse of the Chinese economy.

Look for the major EU powers to continue supporting Israel, but at arm’s length unless or until a war breaks out involving Iran. Should that develop, look for the EU to side with Israel. If Iran launches missiles against Europe, look for European nations to take direct military action against Iran.


United States & the Middle East

The 2012 presidential election campaign has begun with preliminary jockeying for position on key issues. The Obama Administration is undergoing an overhaul in the wake of last year’s mid-term election results. It now appears that President Obama is going to shift his approach towards middle of the road positions.

In terms of foreign policy in the Middle East, Obama has eased his negative approach towards Israel to appease the American Jewish lobby in hopes that Jewish donations to his re-election campaign will mirror the level of donations of 2008.

Military cooperation with Israel will continue in 2011 and may intensify, depending upon how Iran responds to diplomatic overtures from the White House for Iran to suspend its nuclear program voluntarily. Chances for Iran to follow White House appeals are non existent as long as the current regime remains in power. The White House holds out hope that there will be a regime change in 2011 culminating in a suspension of the nuclear program. We suspect that such hopes are unlikely to be fulfilled. Instead we expect a hostile regime to remain in place within Iran.

America’s relationship with friendly Muslim nations will continue to be rocky as Muslim leaders hold President Obama with disdain. This is particularly the case with Arab leaders. The Obama Administration will find Arab nations reluctant to cooperate with Obama’s efforts to create a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

Russia

Russia is signaling an interest in forging a new alliance with Israel. Russian President Medvedev is reportedly planning to visit Israel in the near future to improve trade and military relations with Israel. Both nations are working to supply each other with military weapons.

Russia is also signaling its moving to oppose Iran’s nuclear program under the realization and acceptance of the idea that Iran is indeed working to develop nuclear weapons. Russia now has begun to realize that Iran is a threat to not only Israel but to Russia as well. With that understanding, Russia may well attempt to forge a closer relationship with Israel, particularly with an eye towards forming a business partnership with Israel to develop Israel’s new natural gas fields off the Israeli coastline.

Russian leaders also wish to become an alternative ally with Israel. The tense relations between Israel and the Obama Administration are viewed by Moscow as an opportunity to reduce American influence with Israel and increase Russia’s standing with Israel. Russia would like to be viewed as a partner for Israel and thus increase Russian influence across the Middle East. Look for Russia to continue to develop a closer relationship with Israel and simultaneously become more of an adversary to Iran.

China

China is now showing signs of backing away from its support for Iran. There are reports that Russia has offered to replace Iranian oil products with Russian oil and natural gas to alleviate any losses incurred by China should it find itself being cut off from Iranian oil products in the event of war with Iran. Should war break out, look for China to remain neutral.

The Church in 2011

An Overview
Church Trends going into 2011

1. The Christian Church is becoming less theologically literate.

2. Christians are becoming more ingrown and less outreach-oriented.

3. Growing numbers of people are less interested in spiritual principles and more desirous of learning pragmatic solutions for life.

4. Among Christians, interest in participating in community action is escalating.

5. The postmodern insistence on tolerance is winning over the Christian Church.

6. The influence of Christianity on culture and individual lives is largely invisible.

Comments on various points

#1. What used to be basic, universally-known truths about Christianity are now unknown mysteries to a large and growing share of Americans–especially young adults. For instance, Barna Group studies in 2010 showed that while most people regard Easter as a religious holiday, only a minority of adults associate Easter with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Other examples include the finding that few adults believe that their faith is meant to be the focal point of their life or to be integrated into every aspect of their existence. Further, a growing majority believe the Holy Spirit is a symbol of God’s presence or power, but not a living entity. As the two younger generations (Busters and Mosaics) ascend to numerical and positional supremacy in churches across the nation, the data suggest that biblical literacy is likely to decline significantly. The theological free-for-all that is encroaching in Protestant churches nationwide suggests the coming decade will be a time of unparalleled theological diversity and inconsistency.

#2 Despite technological advances that make communications instant and far-reaching, Christians are becoming more spiritually isolated from non-Christians than was true a decade ago. Examples of this tendency include the fact that less than one-third of born again Christians planned to invite anyone to join them at a church event during the Easter season; teenagers are less inclined to discuss Christianity with their friends than was true in the past; most of the people who become Christians these days do so in response to a personal crisis or the fear of death (particularly among older Americans); and most Americans are unimpressed with the contributions Christians and churches have made to society over the past few years. As young adults have children, the prospect of them seeking a Christian church is diminishing–especially given the absence of faith talk in their conversations with the people they most trust. With atheists becoming more strategic in championing their godless worldview, as well as the increased religious plurality driven by education and immigration, the increasing reticence of Christians to engage in faith-oriented conversations assumes heightened significance.

#3. When asked what matters most, teenagers prioritize education, career development, friendships, and travel. Faith is significant to them, but it takes a back seat to life accomplishments and is not necessarily perceived to affect their ability to achieve their dreams. Among adults the areas of growing importance are lifestyle comfort, success, and personal achievements. Those dimensions have risen at the expense of investment in both faith and family. The turbo-charged pace of society leaves people with little time for reflection. The deeper thinking that occurs typically relates to economic concerns or relational pressures. Spiritual practices like contemplation, solitude, silence, and simplicity are rare. (It is ironic that more than four out of five adults claim to live a simple life.) Practical to a fault, Americans consider survival in the present to be much more significant than eternal security and spiritual possibilities. Because we continue to separate our spirituality from other dimensions of life through compartmentalization, a relatively superficial approach to faith has become a central means of optimizing our life experience.

#4. It is fine for Christians to engage in community action but not at the expense of thinking this will please God.

#5. Biblical illiteracy and lack of spiritual confidence has caused Americans to avoid making discerning choices for fear of being labeled judgmental. The result is a Church that has become tolerant of a vast array of morally and spiritually dubious behaviors and philosophies.

There are fewer and fewer issues that Christians believe churches should be dogmatic about. The idea of love has been redefined to mean the absence of conflict and confrontation, as if there are no moral absolutes that are worth fighting for. That may not be surprising in a Church in which a minority believes there are moral absolutes dictated by the scriptures.

#6. Lack of Christian witness and testimony due to a lack of knowledge and convictions is bound to create a vacuum in which society is no longer influenced or affected by Christianity.
