PEACE PROCESS AND EARTHQUAKE SWARMS

My! What a busy weekend for many in the western half of the U.S.

By now, most everybody knows that a strong earthquake rattled southern California and nerves on Friday night. Apparently the quake struck at 9:11, and 20 seconds after the "Judgment scene" in Noah began. Koenig put up a screenshot of one Twitter user's observation.



I generally don't go to bed until I've watched the top stories from our local news station at 10 p.m., and then go to bed after the weather segment. As I was waiting for the News 9 anchor to switch over to our meteorologist, a noticeable earthquake shook the house. There was a rumble as though a heavy vehicle was coming up the driveway and then the front door started creaking and then several objects rattled.

We've had a swarm of nearly two dozen earthquakes here in Oklahoma since Friday night. Most of the swarm has been located near Crescent, Oklahoma. The other quakes occurred near Choctaw and Hennessey.

And we are hearing of the strongest quake to strike Yellowstone in 29 years struck on the western edge of the caldera, followed by an earthquake swarm there.

And Mt. Hood in Oregon has also experienced over 100 small earthquakes. Mt. Hood apparently last erupted in the late 1700s.

Mt. Hood earthquake swarm

Look at what was going on with the peace process at the same time as these four earthquake swarms.

First, if the framework was revealed on the 28th, I haven't seen it though I have checked multiple news sources.

What we do know is that Israel did not release the next scheduled batch of Palestinian prisoners.

Why?

In part, because the Palestinians refuse to acknowledge Israel as a Jewish state.

We do know that right on time and as expected President Obama and Secretary John Kerry blame the Israelis, not Abbas, for the breakdown in talks, AND say that Israel's refusal to release the prisoners is a violation of the "terms of talks."

US: No Palestinian prisoner release is violation of terms of talks

In the past, when Israel has released prisoners to appease Obama's demands, we've seen a "prisoner issue" come up back here in the states. This time is no different.

Report: Obama Admin Released Tens of Thousands of Illegal Immigrant Criminals

Since Israel has not released the last batch of "promised" prisoners, Obama and Kerry are now saying, "Nice little state you got there, Israel. Too bad we can't help you in the U.N. keep it."

US officials: We can't stop Palestinian UN statehood bid if talks fail

And apparently, to punish Israel for her "recalcitrance," Obama and Kerry might demand even more prisoners of Israel.

Washington demands flexibility of Israel, raising the possibility of another prisoner release of long-serving prisoners as a gesture to the Palestinians.

Part of the Obama-Kerry framework appears to include the giving away of Israel's West Bank, the Jordan Valley. The Jordan Valley is a strategic security point for Israel. Obama and Kerry have offered a high-tech security fence, perhaps similar to what is on the border between the U.S. and Canada, as protection. We aren't 100 percent certain that that is in the framework, but it is rumored to be.

Let's flashback for a second. We all remember Ariel Sharon and the Gaza pullout. Sharon was the prime minister of Israel who oversaw the Gaza pullout in August of 2005. A group of rabbis pronounced a curse upon him for his role, and a short time later Sharon suffered a massive stroke from which he never recovered, and he passed away in early January, just as Kerry was leaving Israel after being there to persuade the Israelis to give up the West Bank.

Back to today. Debka is reporting that Ehud Olmert, prime minister of Israel after Ariel Sharon, was convicted today, Monday, March 31, by Tel Aviv District Court Judge David Rosen of "the most severe bribe charges ever leveled against an Israeli public figure, making him liable for a stiff prison sentence."

Olmert was forced to step down from the office of Prime Minister in 2009. Debka explains why.

Ehud Olmert convicted of taking bribes five years after being forced out as premier

Let's flashback to an interview Olmert gave in May 2013:

More than four years after he offered the Palestinians a state with a sovereign share of Jerusalem and 100% of the West Bank, with some one-for-one land swaps, former prime minister Ehud Olmert accused PA President Mahmoud Abbas of lacking the guts to take the deal.

Abbas failed to accept my peace offer because he’s ‘no hero,’ says Olmert

That's right! Olmert offered 100 percent of the West Bank and a piece of Jerusalem, and the Palestinians said no.

Obama and Kerry are offering the same.

Now, Olmert is found guilty of bribery charges and will NOT be remembered as the prime minister who brought peace but rather, he will be remembered as "that guy who went to prison for being corrupt."

Debka notes this:

Many ordinary Israelis will be asking how a politician of Ehud Olmert’s ilk was allowed to reach such high station with responsibility for distributing the national wealth as minister of trade and commerce and the authority to decide if and when the country went to war as prime minister.

Indeed, the same is asked of President Obama. How did a community organizer with no particular political accomplishments manage to attain the highest office in the United States?

And the guy curiously tweets, on occasion, selfies in prison settings.

What's up with that?

I noted December 6, in my post, PARTY INTERRUPTED, that Obama tweeted a picture of himself in prison as a tribute to Nelson Mandela's death. Curiously, this occurred at the same time Kerry was meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu about giving up the West Bank to the Palestinians.

PARTY INTERRUPTED

And speaking of "ilk," Michael Goodwin at the New York Post has written quite a bit this morning about Obama and that which he has sown he is beginning to reap.

Chickens come home to roost for Obama

His title evokes memories of Jeremiah Wright. Shortly after 9/11, Wright spoke of the U.S. standing with Israel against the Palestinians and then referenced Malcolm X by saying, "America's chickens are coming home to roost." His remarks struck many as implying that the U.S. was responsible for bringing the 9/11 attacks upon herself.

Jeremiah Wright Controversy: The Fall of Jerusalem

In my March 20th post, I noted Obama is being RELENTLESSLY MOCKED about Obamacare and by the Russians. Well, the "relentless mocking" is not easing.

Here is the Obamacare part:

‘Saturday Night Live’ Relentlessly Mocks the Way Obama Is Selling His Health Care Law

Here is the Russian part, though this is more taunting than mocking.

On March 28, our watch day, Voice of Russia wrote that it's Russia that holds the fate of the U.S. dollar in its paw.

Russia’s secret weapon: crashing US economy by collapsing petrodollar

Prominent U.S. trader warns Russia can collapse U.S. economy anytime it wants

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts noted this in a recent interview about what might be Vladimir Putin's mindset as Putin observes how President Obama is handling the Ukraine crisis:

“What does this do to Putin? Putin has been very low key. He’s been very diplomatic. He sits there and watches this and he says:

“What are these Americans up to? Here they bring a direct strategic threat to Russia, right here in my backyard. They are trying to put Ukraine in Nato so they can put missile bases on the Russian border with Ukraine. They tried to grab Russia’s only warm-water naval base, the port we’ve had since Catherine the Great in the 18th century. Why are they doing this? Why these amazing provocations against Russia?”

... So that’s what the idiots in Washington have brought about. They’ve convinced a nuclear power that can wipe the United States off the face of the Earth, and certainly Europe, that they cannot be trusted.

They’ve made it impossible for the Russian government to work with them. They are demonizing Russia, trying to isolate it, trying to punish it for doing nothing -- except not collapsing before American aggression. And so what can he (Putin) do? Prepare for war. This is extremely dangerous.

Any government that is so reckless as Washington is, to create this impression in the government of a strategic nuclear power, any government that would do this is insane. This is a form of recklessness and irresponsibility on the part of the Obama regime and its European puppets that is insane. The whole world is at stake.”

The whole interview is worth a read.

And adding a bit of interesting information and going places on the Bible Wheel that my post RELENTLESSLY MOCKING did not go, Carlos at Chozeh and Nabiy took a look at the number 13013.

Obama the Double Rebel?

I certainly appreciate the additional information.

So . . . where are we at in this process? Apparently Secretary Kerry might return to Israel in the next few days in an attempt to salvage the peace talks. Perhaps that is why the four earthquake swarms over the weekend were not more serious -- the peace talks hit significant snags and did not advance to the next level. Indeed, they appear on verge of collapse, although that is highly unlikely to happen. I don't think Obama or Kerry will relent in their pressure on Israel to give up something, anything, to keep them going.

Kerry considering return to the region to salvage peace talks; Abbas to meet with Palestinian leadership Monday to discuss further steps if Israel doesn't release fourth group of prisoners

I don't link often to Dutchsinse, but he did put out a YouTube that shows the locations of these earthquake swarms in relation to the North American craton, a geological feature that I don't know much about but believe it may play a role in our earthquakes.

AS 'NOAH' DEBUTS

How fitting! As "Noah," starring Russell Crowe, debuts today, one of the biggest controversies surrounding the "epic" film is that there is found no mention of God at any time in the movie. That was exactly how the world was back then, according to Genesis 6. The world had so totally abandoned God that no mention of Him was to be found anywhere. The people of that time were following after Satan and his fallen comrades, and following hard. They had abandoned any sense of decency or goodness or wholesomeness, and most certainly holiness.

Except for Noah.

Noah chose to remain true to Jehovah, and thus, he became isolated in a sense. Genesis 6:9 makes mention that Noah was "perfect in his generations," meaning his family had not participated in the abundant sexual sins that Satan and his rebel angels had thrust upon mankind. Noah's DNA was not intermingled with the DNA of the "sons of God," thus his offspring were not giants nor demigods.

As I was looking up Genesis 6 at Bible Gateway, this ad was at the top of the page.


What timing, right?

And don't you like the accompanying disclaimer? "This is not Noah 101 from the book of Genesis . . . "

Indeed, the two Noah's are not the same.

"Noah 101," according to 2 Peter 2:5, was a "preacher of righteousness."

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

Crowe's Noah, according to the Arkansas vernacular that I am used to, "ain't anything of the kind."

Instead, Crowe's Noah has been remade to what the people of today want him to be -- an environmentalist who receives premonitions of a coming catastrophic flood who seeks to save as many animals as possible.

Or something like that.

It doesn't really matter what Noah does in the movie, just as long as no one brings in "that guy," you know, "God."

This American-made movie reflects wholeheartedly what today's Americans value -- freedom! The ultimate freedom, which is freedom from God.

America began in earnest to remove God from society in 1962, when the Supreme Court ruled against prayer in public school. Madeleine Murray O'Hair pushed the rebellion further when she filed a lawsuit in 1963, to cause schools to no longer allow children to read aloud from the Bible. The Supreme Court agreed with her, thus, God was expelled from school for being too morally straitlaced, and public schools have never been the same since. Now the only kind of "praying" in schools is the "preying" of teachers upon students. A week doesn't go by without hearing of some teacher some where in the U.S. who is caught having sex with a student, or students, either in his or her car, or even his or her classroom.  Or a broom closet.  And it's not just male teachers, it's also female teachers. It has become unbelievable!

Since 1963, teenage pregnancies, not to mention abortions, have skyrocketed. Drug and alcohol addictions among our school-age children is heartbreaking. And if it isn't teachers preying upon students, it's other students preying upon other students -- bullying has become so commonplace that there are often reports of young people in the news because of unrelenting attacks from other students, especially on social media. Some of these students are forced to move to different cities, or states. Some students file lawsuits. Some just kill themselves. Parents often vent their frustrations to news reporters because they believe school administrators turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to their child's plight.

And some of America's most infamous mass shootings have occurred at schools, such as Columbine and Sandy Hook.

The true irony is that O'Hair's lawsuit alleged that reading the Bible in school was tantamount to "bullying" to her son William, and the Supreme Court agreed. Now, bullying is one of the biggest problems our school students face. Daily. And William went on to become an evangelist. Our family went to hear him speak when he came to Oklahoma back in the late 1990s.

Removal of God from schools is just the tip of the iceberg, but it is a tip that has impacted millions of families across these United States. Just like the Titanic and her fateful iceberg, millions of families have sunk since 1963. Very few families have escaped being impacted by events at their public schools.

God and His Ten Commandments are not allowed in our courtrooms. Our Supreme Court does not fear Him; in fact, He appears to be of no interest to the justices. They have made (and still make) many decisions thru the years as though they would never have to give account of themselves.

The government wants nothing to do with Him. It doesn't matter how many government officials claim that they have a "personal faith" in God; if they don't live their lives to reflect His Holiness then they have succeeded in only fooling themselves into thinking they are something they are not. The laws they pass reflect more of where their faith lies than any words they may say on the campaign trail or in funding-raising letters to the yokels back home. If they support laws that protect the killing of the unborn and the tearing down of the traditional family that God established early on (as Kirk Cameron once said, marriage is as old as the Garden of Eden, it's as old as dirt), then they've totally missed the point -- it takes more than saying someone believes in God, they have to live lives that show the fear of God.

No, Americans today do not want anything as old school as God. And that's why we've come to the place we are at -- a Noah who isn't the Noah of the Bible because no one wants a preacher of righteousness any more. Today's America does not fear God, therefore, they do not fear rewriting His Word so that it says what they want it to say.

Revelation 22: 18 and 19 tells us that it is a dangerous thing to change the Word of God to mean something other than what it says.

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

As "Noah" opens in theaters tonight, Cindy by the Sea's post is very timely.

Take warning, take warning!

In 1995, Madeleine Murray O'Hair, along with one son and a granddaughter, went missing. In 2001, their bodies, or at least their body parts, were found severely mutilated in Texas. Her death was confirmed by an implant number on a prosthetic hip found among the remains. She and her son and granddaughter had been apparently tortured and cut to pieces with a saw.

Take from that what you will.

O'Hair wanted God out of school. "Noah" shows that today's Americans want God out of the Bible.

You decide which is more frightening.

We may truly be at the place where little more can be done, at least on a national level. On an individual level, as long as there is breath in your body and the Rapture has not occurred, you can still repent from your sins, which are those acts, deeds, thoughts, that separate you from God, and call out to Jesus to be saved. Like the door that closed on the ark belonging to "Noah 101," the door to this age is closing. Which side will you be on? Where will you find yourself? Inside or out? With Him or without Him?

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. --Roman 10:13

Behold, I (Jesus) stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. --Revelation 3:20

"DEAD CURRENCY WALKING . . . "

says Gregory Mannarino in his YouTube from yesterday, and adds, "We are witnessing the death of the dollar."



I don't know how many earthquakes are needed to qualify as a "swarm," but we've had a bunch since Friday. I've not felt all of them but I will be working when the house will tremble for a few seconds, almost like a train has passed nearby only without the sound.

Oklahoma rattled by 15 earthquakes since Friday

It is heartbreaking to hear of the horrible mudslide that occurred in Washington state over the weekend. Thoughts and prayers lifting for the families.

6 more bodies found in mudslide, death toll rises to 14, over 100 still missing

BE NOT DECEIVED

And from ENE News:

Americans are beginning to reap unprecedented catastrophe on their West Coast

As President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry come against Israel's West Bank by pressuring Israel to relinquish the West Bank to the Palestinians, our "West Bank" is coming under an "unprecedented catastrophe."

Interesting, the use of the word "reap" in the title of the ENE article. Remember Diane Reidy, the House stenography who took to the Chamber floor during the government shutdown over Obamacare and declared, "God will not be mocked!"?

She was speaking of Galatians 6:7, which begins in the King James with, "Be not deceived; God is not mocked:" and ends with, "for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

AS WE APPROACH MARCH 28

Next Friday, March 28, may be the day the Obama-Kerry framework is placed upon the shoulders of Benjamin Netanyahu.

Excerpt:

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is determined to present a proposal by no later than March 28 – the day when a fourth segmented release of Palestinian Arab terrorists from Israeli prisons is scheduled to take place, Ma’ariv said.

Report: U.S. May Unveil Framework Peace Deal Without Agreement of Israel or Palestinian Authority

IMAGINE THE UNIMAGINABLE

As we approach the 28th, events in the world have been heating up. It seems we are seeing the Gog-Magog coalition coalesce as Vladimir Putin tightens his grip on the Ukraine, and hints that an even stronger bond between Russia and Iran (Persia, see Ezekiel 38 and 39) may be forming. Battling for our attention is the mysterious disappearance of a Malaysian plane carrying 239 people on board. President Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry are pressuring Israel to hand over her West Bank to the Palestinians and are hinting that after April, the U.S. will no longer refer to the West Bank as anything other than Palestinian, even if the Israelis continue to claim it as their own. President Obama, who has left one foreign policy blunder after another in his wake is determined that the division of Israel and Jerusalem to the Palestinians will be the crowning achievement of his presidency. He has no idea it will be his ultimate failure.

And he's got quite a rubble pile of failures.

Kinda like that trash pile he stood on in Africa last year thinking it was a touching moment for all who paused to witness it.

Several sites that I read are writing of warnings and reminders that we are in the last moments of this age and of possible events that could be upcoming. As March 28 approaches, and as we have seen a policy shift this month in which Obama and Kerry publicly acknowledge they no longer see the need to recognize Israel as a Jewish State for the purposes of peace, I have deep concerns that events may happen here in America in which we will no longer recognize America as the United States. Sounds extreme, I know, but so does the Russian reminder that they could turn us to "radioactive dust," and Iran's boast that they are preparing for the "Day of Death" to America. Benjamin Netanyahu's father used to say that when someone tells you that they are going to kill you, believe them.

In America, we don't.

As the following warnings are coming forth, I find it interesting this post at American Thinker by Eileen F. Toplansky titled "Obama and the Jewish State." Toplansky lists many of the views President Obama once held concerning Israel when he was a mere state senator in Illinois and then later Senator from Illinois and contrasts them to President Obama's present-day views. You would be hard-pressed to find a single view he has not changed since he attained the Presidency. Like same-sex marriage, Obama appears to have "evolved" on what is "now right" for Israel and like his views on traditional marriage, he has discarded his once traditional views of Israel as something embarrassing to once have held.

One can't help but wonder if Obama used hypocrisy to gain the trust of voters, particularly Jewish voters, so that once he attained power he could reveal his true beliefs. Hypocrisy is nothing more than deception -- it is a set of actions undertaken that belie the true feelings and beliefs of the actor in order to attain acceptance by a group that would not accept him if he spoke the truth of how he truly feels and believes. However, hypocrisy is always a mask and not plastic surgery, therefore, there is always the risk it will slip at some point and reveal the ugly truth that lies behind.

The mask slipped Sunday, March 9. When our President allows his Secretary of State to publicly claim that there is no need for Israel to be called a Jewish state, it is only a short distance further to stating that Israel probably doesn't need to be a state at all. With this President, such a statement is conceivable. Just give him a little more time to "evolve."

RELENTLESS MOCKING

Scientists are now saying that the 90% chance of an earthquake in California by March 17, is now reduced to a possibility of a major quake in the next 25 years.

Last week's quakes were "business as usual"

Secretary of State John Kerry has demanded an apology from Benjamin Netanyahu for remarks from the Israeli Defense Minister Danny Ya'alon for saying the U.S. is "weak."

Israeli defense minister apologizes for calling U.S. 'weak'

However, NO apology was demanded from the Iranians for their photoshop of President Obama wearing a Nazi uniform and shown with his hands over his head in surrender, NOR for their filming Muslims on their way to a mosque for prayer walking over an American flag on the ground and each man spitting on a large photograph of Obama, also on the ground.

Those Iranians . . . they're such kidders!

As US touts thaw in Iran relations, Iranians spit on Obama image, prepare for ‘Death to America’ day

Even Jimmy Fallon, who has dressed in drag twice now while having the First Lady, Michelle Obama, on his show, mocked Obama by pretending to be Vladimir Putin and taking a phone call from a look-a-like Obama impersonator.

“Look, don’t you see what you’re doing though? You’re forcing people to accept something that the majority of them don’t even want,” the actor playing Obama tells Putin, referring to Russia’s annexation of the Crimea region of Ukraine.

“Yes,” responds Fallon, playing Putin. “In Russia we have word for this: Obamacare.”

“So look, Vlad, just to recap our call, no progress was made here, right?” the Obama character says at the end of the skit.

“None at all,” Fallon’s Putin responds.

“Okay. Take care,” the faux Obama says before hanging up.

Jimmy Fallon dings Obamacare as unpopular, mocks Obama’s feckless handling of Ukraine

Thomas Lifson takes a look at how the Russians have MERCILESSLY been mocking President Obama for days now, including showing Obama photoshopped as a KGB Colonel who is really one of them with the ultimate goal of destroying America, and Obama's assignment -- destroy it from within!



Isn't it interesting that the Russians assigned the number 13013 to Obama? 13 is the number of rebellion and associated with Sodom, and here it is in the same number twice.

And why was Vice President Biden in Poland?

VP Biden is desperately trying to reassure our allies that President Obama is concerned about developments on their borders with Ukraine.

The 'Obama is weak' message is coming from our allies

Cartoonists here at home also mock.

Obama loves the poor

The three branches of government

Let's flashback to October 16. A House stenographer took to the floor of the House Chamber while a vote was taking place to re-open the U.S. government and declared, "God will not be mocked." Since that date, Obama and Kerry have been mocked and ridiculed AROUND THE WORLD.

10/28 NEWS LINKS and GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED

And finally, saw this. It's a long shot.

White House seeks to replace Netanyahu?

Keep in mind, as it is done unto Israel, so is it done unto us. If Obama is seeking, even covertly, behind the scenes, to see if Netanyahu can be removed from power, well . . . events may change here at home in such a way that he may find himself trying to survive politically.

ABBAS IN D.C.

As promised Mahmoud Abbas will be in Washington, D.C., today to visit with Barack Obama to see what the two of them can wrangle out of Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israelis in "the name of peace." All Abbas has to do is say "jump" and Obama will ask "how high." Or Abbas can say, "I want more terrorists released," and Obama will ask, "How many?" It's that simple.

Koenig has the best collection of headlines for today showing all the events that are happening on the same day as this meeting. Here are a few of the titles. I haven't linked to them -- you will need to go Koenig's page if you want to read them.

They have it in their ability to turn the U.S. economy upside down and into collapse. There is no question whatsoever. Putin doesn’t need a nuclear bomb. He has a nuclear economic bomb that he can set off at any time.

"IMAGINE THE UNIMAGINABLE," PART 2

There are four stories that seem to bear watching.

Remember:

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.

"IMAGINE THE UNIMAGINABLE"

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.

"IMAGINE THE UNIMAGINABLE"

The Seattle Times is reporting that the drawdown of water behind the Wanapum Dam has caused the 2-inch wide crack to close a half inch. That's good news!

Here are two interesting same-day events:

On Sunday, March 9, John Kerry's State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, speaking to an Arab newspaper, made the following statement:

“The American position is clear, Israel is a Jewish state. However, we do not see a need that both sides recognize this position as part of the final agreement."

U.S. sends dangerously mixed signals on Israel as a Jewish state

A few hours later, a 6.9 struck about 50 miles off the coast of northern California, followed by several aftershocks.



If the pattern we often see holds true, that as we do unto Israel it is done unto us, then if President Obama and John Kerry decide that there is "no need" to identify Israel as a Jewish state in an attempt to force the Israelis to forge a peace agreement with the Palestinians, then is it possible that the United States will come to a place where she is no longer recognizable as the United States?

I ask that because also over the weekend, Dinesh D'Souza previewed his upcoming movie, America, and when you see the end of the trailer, you see that D'Souza claims that America, because of President Obama's policies, in the not-too-distant future will no longer be recognizable as America.

D'Souza tells us to "imagine the unimaginable."

He asks, as different landmarks, all very iconic to America (the Washington Monument, Mt Rushmore, raising the flag on Iwo Jima, and the Statue of Liberty), dissolve, "What would the world look like . . . "









". . . if America did not exist."

I don't know, but this trailer claiming that soon America will no longer be recognizable as America debuted the SAME weekend that the State Department stated that it was no longer essential to recognize Israel as a Jewish state as a condition for achieving peace.

Dinesh D'Souza's "America"

And not only did this trailer premier asking this disturbing question, but also Mike Huckabee, former 2008 Presidential hopeful and Baptist minister warned of God's "fiery judgment" upon America if we do not repent of our sins.

"These are the things that I know. I know there is a God, and I know this nation would not exist had he not been the midwife of its birth. And I know that this nation exists by the providence of his hand, and if this nation forgets our God, then God will have every right to forget us," Huckabee said. "I hope that we repent before we ever have to receive his fiery judgment."

Huckabee: Time for government, not 'people of faith to scale back'

If you read nothing else about Israel or the peace process today, then read Isi Leibler's take on the Obama-Goldberg interview.

Candidly Speaking: Obama-Netanyahu rift is unbridgeable

Two dates to mark on the calendar.

March 17 -- Abbas will meet with Obama in Washington, D.C.

And March 28.

Excerpt:

The White House is debating whether to unveil a framework Israel-Palestinian Authority peace agreement that will address final status issues without the consent of Jerusalem and Ramallah, Israeli daily Ma’ariv reported on Sunday.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is determined to present a proposal by no later than March 28 – the day when a fourth segmented release of Palestinian Arab terrorists from Israeli prisons is scheduled to take place, Ma’ariv said.

Report: U.S. May Unveil Framework Peace Deal Without Agreement of Israel or Palestinian Authority

Not only is Kerry's State Dept sending "mixed signals" about Israel being a Jewish state, his State Dept is also sending mixed signals to Russia over the Ukraine.

But China is NOT sending mixed signals.

And speaking of New Mexico, physicians in New Mexico and New York are reporting patients with common strept that morphed into a superbug. The patients were not related nor had any contact with each other, which indicates a genetic mutation may be occurring.

On a personal note, our family learned that strept is nothing to take lightly. In 2005, my daughter came down with strept throat that became strept pneumonia. She spent a week in the hospital and nearly died. She is allergic to both penicillin and sulfa drugs, so she had to have an IV antibiotic. Very, very grateful that she survived.

WILKERSON, WANAPUM DAM, ISRAEL, and UKRAINE

It was March 7, 2009, that David Wilkerson sent out his URGENT MESSAGE.

Speaking of Wilkerson, he said that when a nation is under judgment, its foreign policy will be mocked and fingers are pointed as others laugh at it.

It was a video!

Mardi Gras Floats Mock Failure of Obamacare

The Phone Call

Even though President Obama insists that "he has Israel's back," we get this story from Breitbart that President Obama has requested a reduction in funding for Israel's defense and security.

Still watching Wanapum Dam. Engineers apparently have very serious concerns about the structure. I don't usually update over the weekend, but if anything changes with this dam, I will post any relevant link(s).

NPR: Rapidly unfolding situation at cracked dam has engineers scrambling — Experts troubled over ‘slip’ in structure — Official “didn’t answer question” about dam near Hanford nuclear site — Major employer in area obviously worried — “Spring snow melt will swell river” — NBC: “Dam Repairs Itself”

Note was made of the news of this dam on February 28th, one day after the interview between Jeffrey Goldberg and President Obama on February 27th, which has been described as "scary" and "battering." The intent of the interview was apparently to pressure Benjamin Netanyahu into accepting the Obama-Kerry "framework" for a 2-state solution, one which includes Israel surrendering its West Bank. Now Goldberg has spoken out, and he even thinks President Obama was more "threatening" in this interview than in past interviews.

Goldberg:

“I took it to be a little bit of a veiled threat, to be honest,” Goldberg said. “It’s almost up there with, you know, nice little Jewish state you got there, I’d hate to see something happen to it.”

“It was, look, I want to help you, but you’re not helping me help you, and, therefore, there’s only so much political capital I’m going to go spend in the UN, with the EU, with the Arab League, on your behalf,” Goldberg said. “I think it was all couched very carefully but it’s there and certainly the government in Israel feels like it’s there.”

Jeffrey Goldberg Says He Interpreted Obama Comments on Israel as a ‘Veiled Threat’

A reader noted to me that "structure" and "framework" are very similar in meaning. True!

In the meantime, Charles Krauthammer notes that President Obama is anything but threatening when it comes to Obama challenging Vladimir Putin over the Ukraine, and, in fact, has signaled to the world that "we aren't going to do anything about it."

Gregory Mannarino at TradersChoice. net is still keeping an eye on Putin and how he is probably manipulating the money markets right now and that Putin is DIRECTLY threatening economic attack on the U.S.

And keep this in mind: the Ukraine is a major producer of wheat for Russia, and right now Ukraine is facing wheat and corn shortages because of increasing drought.

If you are not keeping up with what is happening at a nuclear storage facility in New Mexico, you might want to put it on your radar.

“WIPP release story doesn’t add up… accident is unbelievable” — New tests show “high level” release underground — “Contains things far more radioactive than High Level Waste” — “I want to hear what really happened down there”

Keeping with New Mexico for a moment, there were reports last night of fireballs over New Mexico and Canada.

ON THE PRECIPICE

"We are on the precipice of something huge, absolutely huge, something we have not seen, most of us, in our lifetimes, and Vladimir Putin is playing this like a master, in my opinion" so says Gregory Mannarino of TradersChoice.net. Several days ago I posted that March 4 might be a day to watch because, "the 4th of March 2014 would be the date on which the economic collapse accelerated," according to economist Grady Means speaking in 2012.>

Mannarino posted a YouTube yesterday, on March 4th, describing how Putin has set up the United States to crush us economically. In a second follow-up video just two hours later, Mannarino reiterates that he believes that Putin is setting up the U.S. for a "severe blow," and to expect a hard pullback from the DOW. In this 2nd YT he provides a very easy-to-understand chart about DOW Transports to illustrate what he is looking at with regard to the DOW. Mannarino does not expect Putin to back down from Obama and that Putin's ultimate goal is is to probably bring back the old Russian empire.

In addition, Mannarino is waiting for "China's move," and thinks China's "going to do something," and that these two powers are "colluding" against the United States, and we may see a "two-pronged action here," and "it could happen at any moment." I've placed both YTs at the end of this post.

Drudge posted several links yesterday about threats to the U.S. dollar from Russia, especially with regard to using the dollar for oil, and China indicated, rather quickly, support for and alignment with Russia.





ZeroHedge also kept its finger on the pulse of Russian rhetoric concerning the U.S. dollar.

Russia Warns "Will Have To Respond" For US Sanctions

Dimitru Duduman said this day would come, the day when Russia would say,"Why let ourselves be led by the Americans? Why not rule the world ourselves? They have to be kicked out of Europe, too! Then I could do as I please with Europe!"

And speaking of Duduman, this is what his grandson Michael Boldea had to say March 2, about Russia and Ukraine.

And from The Economic Collapse blog:

Russia And China Stand In Agreement On Ukraine – And That Is Very Bad News For The United States

And doesn't Mannarino's word, "precipice" remind us of President Obama standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon?

AS WE APPROACH MONDAY

And isn't it interesting that President Obama spoke about the Ukraine crisis from Powell Elementary School yesterday? Interesting because in I, Pet Goat 2, the video shows in its first opening minutes Satan manipulating a puppet who happens to be George W. Bush in an elementary classroom the day of 911. Then Bush sits in a chair and swivels around to become Barack Obama who is now in the classroom. A minute or two later, the scene switches to outside of the classroom and we see the Twin Towers fall and then the scene transforms shortly thereafter to a scene of a Middle East War. I understand President Obama was in the classroom to tout his latest budget proposals, which includes funding for Pre-K, but what an interesting setting to also speak of Russia and the Ukraine, especially as the actions of Russia seem provocative toward war.





In the meantime, concerning Wanapum Dam, here is the latest from ENE News:

Is cracked dam a ticking time bomb? “Next 24-48 Hours Critical” — “Preparing for worst-case scenario” — No ‘immediate’ threat — Feds monitor structure, ‘sudden release’ possible — “Very few have faced this” — NPR: New photo shows ‘pronounced curve’ — Docks near Hanford nuke site closed

NPR: Operators struggle with major crack in dam; Spillway could topple — AP: “Extends all 65 ft across monolith”; About 20 miles from Hanford nuclear site — TV: “Pretty crazy… one of biggest dams in state, going to be a catastrophe if something happens”

IS THE DAM ABOUT TO BREAK?

Concerning Israel President Obama frequently intones that an "unbreakable bond" exists between Israel and the U.S. However his interview with Jeffrey Goldberg just prior to the arrival of Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with President Obama yesterday (March 3), would indicate otherwise.

Obama to Israel -- Time Is Running Out

The purpose of the interview appears to be "pressure" from President Obama to Benjamin Netanyahu to accept the Obama-Kerry "framework," which includes conceding the West Bank to the Palestinians. Several commentators writing for various news outlets appear "taken aback" by the combative tone that President Obama took towards Israel and Benjamin Netanyahu in the interview. Here are some examples.

Leo Rennert uses some interesting wording:

Or was this a case where Obama just wanted to flex his muscles and teach Bibi a lesson, with the aim of creating a deep rift within Israel’s political landscape?

Obama paints Bibi as obstacle to peace, lauds Abbas

YNet News notes that President Obama took a contentious tone concerning the West Bank.

Obama's message for Netanyahu: Israel faces bleak future should talks fail

Elliott Abrams described Obama's interview with Goldberg as "scary."

If He Believes It, It Must Be So

David Horowitz called the interview a "bombshell."

The timing could not have been any more deliberate — an assault on the prime minister’s policies delivered precisely as Netanyahu was flying in to meet with him, and on the first day, too, of the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC’s annual tour de force conference across town.

At the very least, that might be considered bad manners, poor diplomatic protocol, a resounding preemptive slap in the face: I’ve just told the world you’re leading your country to wrack and ruin, Mr. Prime Minister. Now, what was it you wanted to talk to me about? (emphasis mine)

For Netanyahu, a bombshell battering by Obama

Reuters' headline about the interview is quite interesting.

Obama warns of 'fallout' for Israel if peace effort fails

Daniel at Prayers for the People has written his observations about the press briefing held after the two men met for three hours in the Oval Office. Daniel notes that the first question from a reporter was not about the peace process or the Obama-Kerry "framework," even Iran, but did President Obama intend to do anything about Russia's invasion of Ukraine? President Obama's answer about Russia couldn't help but be very telling to Mr. Netanyahu, for Obama's answer spoke volumes about how he would probably react to an act of aggression from Iran against Israel, which would be essentially nothing.

Bibi's Day of Confirmation

Let's look at something interesting about Goldberg's interview and an event that was published the NEXT DAY.  Something we often look for here on this blog are events that happen within 24-48 hours after a President of the United States comes up against Israel.

The interview was published Sunday, March 2nd. Goldberg opens his article by noting that his interview with President Obama was conducted for one hour in the Oval Office on Thursday, February 27th.

On March 1, I bookmarked this article from Daily Mail Online. At that time I was unaware of the Goldberg interview on the 27th. I thought it interesting because the dam is on the COLUMBIA RIVER (Columbia = America) in WASHINGTON STATE (Washington State named for President George Washington, as is Washington, D.C.).

Sixty-five-foot CRACK is discovered in Washington dam amid safety fears

On March 2nd, ENE News reported that the Seattle Times reported on FEBRUARY 28th, that a MASSIVE crack was found in Wanapum Dam on the Columbia River in Washington State.

An engineer noticed and reported a "bowing" in Wanapum Dam. Divers were dispatched to inspect the dam and found a 65-foot long crack, approximately 2 inches wide, about 70 feet below water. The dam is "just downstream from where Interstate 90 crosses the river."

Let's look at the concerns ENE News is noting (emphasis mine):

Seattle Times, Feb. 28, 2014 (emphasis added): ‘Serious problem’: 65-foot crack found in Columbia River dam — A massive crack in a major Columbia River dam poses enough of a risk of dam failure that Grant County authorities have activated an emergency-response plan. [...] “At this point we already know there’s a serious problem,” said Thomas Stredwick, spokesman for the Grant County Public Utility District (PUD). “We want to make sure the spillway is stable enough that inspectors are safe when inspecting it. [...] This is a situation that’s really changing as more information becomes available” [...]

Seattle Times, Feb. 28, 2014: There’s no immediate threat to public safety from the crack in the Wanapum Dam [...] Stredwick said [...] officials analyzed the divers’ data and decided Friday that the failure risk was sufficiently high that they should notify other government agencies [...]

Columbia Basin Herald, Mar. 1, 2014: [T]his large of a crack has never been found on a Grant PUD dam. [...] engineers noticed something unusual on the water level [...] the crack, which spans the entire length of the dam, had formed about 70 feet under water.

Oregon Public Radio: Worst-case scenario is if the spillway was to topple. But Stredwick thinks other sections of the dam would hold on and downstream communities should be safe.

NBC News, Mar. 1, 2014: [NOAA's] National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for Grant County through the weekend as the water is drawn down because “the potential exists for a rapid increase in flows from Wanapum Dam.”

Eugene Weekly, Nov. 27, 2013: Dam failure was also examined, [David Swank, assistant VP at Columbia Generating Station] says, using flood maps provided by the Army Corps of Engineers [...] “Flood level would not get to the plant,” Swank says, providing nothing has changed in the 30 years since the mapping was done. [...] “It’s always tough to say with certainly that a facility is 100 percent prepared for an unknown disaster,” says Geoff Tyree of the Department of Energy. He says the DOE has looked at the possibility of the worst-case scenario where the Grand Coulee Dam partially fails on the Columbia River. He says that flooding could result in the release of radioactive material from portions of Hanford into the water, but he says that same water would dilute the radiation to a very low level off site [...]

COLUMBIA GENERATING STATION FINAL SAFETY ANALYSIS REPORT (pdf), Dec. 2011: Grand Coulee Dam is ~250 river miles upstream from the CGS nuclear reactor, while the Wanapum Dam is ~60 river miles from the reactor and ~30 river miles from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

Emergency plan activated after ‘massive’ crack found in dam near nuclear site — Official: ‘Serious problem’; Failure risk ‘sufficiently high’ — NOAA: “Potential for rapid increase in flows” — Gov’t: Flooding could release radioactive waste from Hanford (VIDEO)



As we can see, the decision was made FRIDAY, FEB 28th, that the crack in the dam was severe enough that authorities decided to notify appropriate government agencies.

Those "appropriate government agencies" are reassuring the public that they do not believe the dam will fail, nor if it does, that the entire dam would go and that the two nuclear reactors sitting downstream would be affected, although if they were the water would probably sufficiently dilute any radioactivity released.

Take from that what you want.

Interstate 90 runs from Seattle, Washington, thru Chicago, then on to Boston, Massachusetts. Chicago is the political home state of President Obama, and Boston is the home of Secretary of State John Kerry.



The number "90" is a multiple of "9" and "10." E. W. Bullinger notes that the number 9 is associated with JUDGMENT, and SODOM, and SIEGES AGAINST JERUSALEM. The number 10 used as a multiplier indicates increased intensity.

As President Obama (Columbia, Washington, D.C.) comes up against Israel in an interview on February 27th in an interview that is described by various writers as "contentious," "scary," and "battering," and President Obama even "threatening" "fallout" if Israel does not concede the West Bank to the Palestinians, an "intense" situation was identified the next day on February 28th, when a 65-foot long crack was found 70 feet underwater on a dam on the COLUMBIA River on the WEST BANK of AMERICA, in WASHINGTON STATE, and is "threatening" to fail and possibly affect one or two nuclear reactors.

If this dam is a type and shadow of the relationship and views this President has with the nation of Israel and her leadership, then like the dam, the Goldberg interview indicates there is a deep crack that has formed out of sight (underwater) but noticeable enough to affect the structure (bowing) that should it give, could affect much in the aftermath (wrack and ruin).

*Wanapum -- "wana" means "river," and "pum" means "people."
