There are four stories that seem to bear watching.


A key issue for the Israelis in the peace process with the Palestinians moving forward was the request of the Israelis for the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. The Palestinians have repeatedly refused to do this. On Monday, I wrote a short post about a comment made by John Kerry's U.S. State Department in which the State Department now sides with the Palestinians and state that they also see no need for the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state in order for the peace process to move forward.

Curiously, a short time later, a 6.9 earthquake occurred about 50 miles off the northern California coast.


ENE News informed us that the 6.9 was "directly across" from a nuclear fuel storage site located in Humboldt County. The local sheriff said, "This very easily could have been a catastrophe that could have caused a lot of damage."

AP: ‘Very strong’ 6.9 quake rattles California coast, widely felt throughout region — Directly across from nuclear fuel storage site

In addition, ENE News also went on to report that there was a "greater than 90% chance of a strong quake within 7 days.

‘Aftershock Warning’: Probability of a strong quake within 7 days greater than 90% (VIDEO)

That gives us the time frame of March 10 thru March 17.

Now, yesterday, Thursday, March 13, Secretary of State John Kerry, appearing before a Congressional committee, made an additional statement concerning the Israeli request for the Palestinians to recognize them as a Jewish state when asked to clarify the Obama administration's position.

"I think it's a mistake for some people to be raising it again and again as the decider."

Kerry went on to point out to the committee that since both the original U.N. resolution, Resolution 181, which divided Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state, and since the U.S. recognizes Israel as a Jewish state, then this should be enough for the Israelis, and they should not be raising "again and again" the issue with the Palestinians.

Kerry: 'It's a Mistake' for Israel to Demand a Jewish State

It may be worthwhile to note that the first time the statement was made that it was no longer "needed" to recognize Israel as a Jewish state for purposes of negotiations with the Palestinians, the statement came from a lower level State Department spokeswoman. This second time the statement is made, it is from the Secretary of State himself, and in a very formal government setting. Meaning -- there is no mistaking the Obama-Kerry position as it came directly from the top diplomat himself and in a setting in which there is no mistake about official policy.

Four stories have jumped out at me as occurring in this March 10-17 time frame that might be worth noting.

First story -- March 12, the L.A. Times:

A potent threat of major earthquake off California's northern coast: Risk of a monster quake and tsunami off California's North Coast is greater than researchers once thought

Second story -- March 12 and 13, ENE News compiles reports from several news agencies of a huge pod of 70 (some reports, 100) "ultra-rare ‘false killer whales’ sighted off California." These members of the dolphin family were last seen IN THE EARLY 1980s.

‘Ultra-Rare’: Up to 70 endangered ‘whales’ by California coast — Seen once in several decades, lives in open ocean — Breached as if performing, rubbing heads on boat — So loud thought it was engine

ENE News linked to a story that large sea mammals seem to be sensing the danger of the approaching radiation plume from Fukushima and are appearing in mass numbers. That may be the case.

But isn't it also true that some marine life may sense an impending earthquake?

We all know that scientists say animals don't do anything of the kind, but people who are around animals quite a bit say they do behave differently when there is approaching bad weather or earthquakes. It's up to you to decide if scientists in concrete buildings with their Starbucks coffee or farmers and ranchers working around animals most of their lives know when their animals act differently.

Third story -- as we approach March 28, we are watching that date on our calendar because, "ready or not, here it comes" -- the Obama-Kerry "framework" for peace between the Israelis and Palestinians might be unveiled whether both parties want it or not, as well as the last group of Palestinian murderers and terrorists will be released because of pressure from President Obama for the Israelis to demonstrate "good will" for the sake of the peace process.

As I asked in "IMAGINE THE UNIMAGINABLE," if the U.S. has decided that it is no longer "needed" for the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, then is possible something could happen to America so that we are no longer recognizable as American?

WITHIN 24 HOURS of the State Department, thru its spokeswoman on Sunday, March 9th, stated that it was no longer "needed" for the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, and WITHIN 24 HOURS of the 6.9 earthquake off Humboldt County, California, on Sunday, March 9th, a report was published on Monday, March 10th about YELLOWSTONE.

The headline is not reassuring.

Yellowstone Supervolcano 2.5X Larger Than Previously Thought

Fourth story -- Senator Diane Feinstein of CALIFORNIA (remember, WEST BANK of America), is angry to learn that the CIA was probably spying on members of the committee in which she is a member, the Senate Intelligence Committee. Never mind the hypocrisy that she didn't express ANY outrage to learn the NSA is spying on everyday Americans. In my post AS WE APPROACH MONDAY, we did a flashback to January 1998, to remember when Bill Clinton received Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House to pressure him into relinquishing PART of the West Bank to the Palestinians as a part of the peace process. The next day, the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke. Now, on March 3, 2014, President Obama did the EXACT SAME THING as Clinton -- he brought Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House to pressure him into relinquishing MOST of the West Bank to the Palestinians in the name of his Obama-Kerry framework.

The White House visit between Obama and Netanyahu was March 3.

Feinstein's accusation against the CIA on the floor of the Senate came March 11.

Feinstein claims that she tried to gain additional information on both January 17 and January 23 from the CIA about why they were searching the Senate computers, but received no information.

Besides the eerie time parallel between Clinton-Netanyahu and the Lewinsky scandal (January 20, 1998), and this accusation from Feinstein (January 17-23), like the Lewinsky scandal, though the scandal broke on a certain day (the 20th), it had been brewing for a few weeks prior, same with Feinstein . . . it broke on a certain date (the 11th), but had been brewing prior to that. Like Bill Clinton about Lewinsky, President Obama has been refusing to say anything much about the CIA operation, probably in hopes that it will just go away. Why be transparent if you don't have to be, right?

Keep an eye on this story.

Will there be a huge earthquake off California's coast before the 17th?

Will Yellowstone erupt on the 28th?

Will the Feinstein-CIA dispute become a scandal that affects Obama?

I do not know.

I could see how a major earthquake on the 17th might cause a "domino effect" with Yellowstone. Certainly there have been reports of volcanoes that have erupted after nearby strong earthquakes occurred, so it is possible.

While I do not know if these two events (California quake, Yellowstone) will occur, I do know this: we are telling the Israelis that one of their key demands in the peace process, to be recognized as a Jewish state, is being dismissed as no longer "needed." As our State Department is making these statements, we are seeing reports in the news that we could face catastrophic events that could change America as we know her, and that "ultra-rare" marine animals are being sighted off the coast of California behaving in odd manners. These reports are not coming from scraggly-bearded homeless men walking the streets of New York City with placards on their bodies stating "The End is Near!" No, these reports are coming from scientists who are reporting what they are observing and studying. And these reports are coming as we approach March 28, a day that could be key not only for Israel, but for America as well.

It is up to you as to what you do with these observations. It is never my intent to frighten anyone. I have stated before, and I will do so again. I live in Oklahoma, and every March, April, May and June (but particularly May), we often come under severe weather watches for tornadoes. I have lived in Oklahoma for 25 years, and I have learned that when our local weather guys tell us to stay aware of the weather, then I do just that, stay aware. I go about my daily life. I do not sit in my storm cellar all day "just in case." No, I go about my daily business but usually leave the TV on with the Weather Channel in the background (although my cable provider has discontinued its contract with THE Weather Channel and they now provide something that resembles a local high school drama production of TRYING to look like they are THE Weather Channel). I do what I need to do everyday, just keep extra vigilant as certain days warrant it. I see this as no different. I am to go about my business and do what I would usually do, but just stay extra vigilant.

The Bible tells us that as the "doomsday" hour approached for Sodom and Gomorrah, two angels visited Lot and gave him notice to leave. It wasn't much notice, only a few hours, but it was still notice. Since the Bible is to be our example, then keep Lot's experience in mind: it may be that at the last moment, something happens where you need to leave the area for a totally unexpected reason.

I have believed since Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio, both of New York, have stated they don't want Christians in their state (though Cuomo's tried to soften his remarks somewhat) has been, perhaps, God's way of getting some Christians out of New York. It is clear from the Bible that He removes Christians from an area before He judges that area.

In these last days, as we come up against Israel, and make no mistake, President Obama and Secretary John Kerry are coming up against Israel, I believe that as Christians pray and seek Our Heavenly Father as to where we should be and what we should be doing, He will direct, even if it is at the last moment.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? --Psalm 27:1

12 And the men (the two angels) said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:

13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.

14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
