Up to 7,000 held in Libyan prisons, U.N. says

October 14, 2011 Comments off

Do you think this sort of thing could not or would not happen here in the U.S.? Time will tell – The United States has a secret plan to reopen closed military bases for incarceration of those demonstrating against the United States government. For you own present welfare, please do not take part in any of the coming surges of unrest. An iron fist is what awaits those that rise up. Oppression of Satan’s unjust world is only the beginning of the nightmare awaiting mankind, but deliverance will come through Yahweh’s army of heavenly hosts. We are not blind to your dilemma or your cries of desperation. As things culminate into the mire of a feeling of desolation, Yahweh the Warrior will rise up and deliver Her people. Be patient and ever diligent towards your coming deliverance from Satan’s hell on earth.

Up to 7,000 prisoners are held in dozens of makeshift detention centers in Libya more than two months after rebel forces toppled Muammar Gaddafi, amid serious allegations and some evidence of torture, the United Nations said on Friday.

Transitional authorities lack a clear system for screening and registering detainees, thus opening the door to ill-treatment, Mona Rishmawi, a senior official of the U.N. human rights office, told a briefing after a weeklong visit to Libya.

Prisoners include people arrested at checkpoints without identity papers, suspected mercenaries from several regions, pro-Gaddafi fighters captured on the battlefield or people whose names appeared on lists of people to be rounded up, she said.

“There are thousands of people who are being held, we are talking about a large number. It could be up to 7,000,” said Rishmawi, who is in charge of the office’s rule of law branch.

“The majority of these people have not gone through a (judicial) process. This of course is a recipe for abuse. There are indications of very serious issues going on.”

In all, there are believed to be 67 makeshift detention centers across Libya, compared with a few central prisons during the 42-year-rule of Gaddafi, she added.

The International Committee of the Red Cross has visited at least 40 Libyan prison facilities, ICRC spokesman Steven Anderson told Reuters on Friday. Its confidential findings about conditions are shared only with detaining authorities.

Amnesty International issued a report on Wednesday saying Libya’s new rulers were in danger of repeating human rights abuses commonplace under Gaddafi. The NTC said it would look into the report.

“EVIDENCE OF TORTURE”

Hanny Megally, head of the U.N. human rights office’s Asia, Pacific, Middle East and North Africa branch, led the mission to Libya. They met ministers of the National Transitional Council, as well as activists and lawyers, and visited some prisons but did not speak with inmates.

“…We actually believe that the situation in the prisons is that there is ill-treatment, there are allegations and evidence of torture. Yes, I can say that,” Rishmawi said. – Reuters

Fed Plotting to Monitor Critics, Tailor Propaganda

October 14, 2011 Comments off

The United States government has been monitoring the internet for years. This is nothing new. Trying to decipher the mood of its masses is how it makes future preparatory decisions. When the vault at Fort Knox was inspected in the 70′s by a the U.S. Congress, what they viewed was what they believed to be gold bars. But, can you trust your eyes, or must you see what is beneath that which sparkles? The 2009 expose of the faked bars by the independent London Bullion Market Association revealed all that glitters is not always what it first appeared to be. Congress has been fooled once, but will it allow itself to be fooled again?

The collapse of the United States monetary system will cause a domino effect around the globe. The only way to rectify the world’s failing economic collapse is for an international currency to be put into place and under the scrutiny of an independent reserve that monitors all holdings. 

The Federal Reserve is seeking contractors to build a tool that will monitor and analyze blogs, news reports, and social-media chatter about the central bank and its policies, with a goal of being able to use “public relations” strategies to counter the growing barrage of negative publicity. But critics quickly added to the institution’s troubled image as the news spread by lambasting the half-baked scheme as “Orwellian” spying and “intimidation.”

The Fed’s “Request for Proposal” explains that the institution needs a platform to “monitor billions of conversations” and “identify and reach out to key bloggers and influencers.” Information collected will be used to measure the effectiveness of the central bank’s “public relations” and “communication strategies” — known in laymen’s terms as propaganda operations.

“There is need for the Communications Group to be timely and proactively aware of the reactions and opinions expressed by the general public as it relates to the Federal Reserve and its actions on a variety of subjects,” the document states. News outlets, Facebook, Twitter, forums, blogs, YouTube, and other social media platforms will all be targeted.

“A system like this is not cheap,” noted The Economic Collapse Blog, which called the Fed’s plan a “very creepy” part of a disturbing trend. “What the ‘authorities’ want is for us to shut up, sit in our homes and act as if nothing wrong is happening. Meanwhile, they seem determined to watch us more closely than ever.”

The system being sought, which the Fed calls a “Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution,” should be able to gauge the sentiment and tone expressed by the public. And it must be able to gather information from different countries and regions in multiple languages.

“The solution must provide real-time monitoring of relevant conversations,” the Fed demanded, saying it should also be able to offer summaries or overviews of public sentiment on a variety of topics. An “alerting mechanism” that automatically sends out notifications based on a “predefined trigger” must be incorporated in the system, too.

Other demands listed by the central bank include the ability to track the reach and spread of its propaganda, “handle crisis situations,” and identify emerging trends in Fed-related discussions online. The desired system would also be able to differentiate between “influencers versus followers,” and gauge the true impact of specific anti-Fed criticism beyond simply comparing online traffic data generated by a particular source.

The financial analysis site ZeroHedge, apparently the first media outlet to uncover and expose the scheme, fiercely ridiculed the central bank and its tactics. But it also noted that “the Fed has just entered the counterespionage era and will be monitoring everything written about it anywhere in the world.”

The central bank, however, is not alone. Numerous critics of the plan have compared it to President Obama’s recently unveiled “Attack Watch,” a service for Americans to report negative statements about the administration or its policies. The citizen-snitching operation, as it has been dubbed, also prompted ridicule — but grave concern as well.

And as The New American reported in March, the U.S. military was exposed earlier this year seeking a tool that would allow a single government agent to operate multiple fake social-media characters simultaneously. The objective, similar to the Fed’s desired “solution,” is to monitor critics and influence public opinion through propaganda.

Analysts said authorities’ growing interest in tracking and manipulating public sentiment expressed online is a sign that the alternative media is becoming increasingly powerful as the “mainstream media” continues to implode. Others said the efforts also appear to be desperate intimidation tactics aimed at quieting the growing wave of public outrage aimed at the Fed, the undeclared wars, and the Obama administration.

Fury over the privately owned central banking system and its policies — multi-trillion-dollar secret bailouts, mass manipulation of markets, wild money printing, resisting a government audit, and more — has been steadily rising for years. Official documents released in 2009 revealed that even the U.S. military was concerned about the growing “End the Fed” movement. – The New American

Return of the Iceland ash cloud? Fears grow of Katla volcanic eruption

October 14, 2011 Comments off

Psalm 68:33 “to Him who rides in the ancient, highest heavens. Look, He thunders with His powerful voice!”

The thunder you hear in thunder storms, that is Mother’s voice. Since She is nature in the raw, you know when She is angry.

Psalm 68:2 2 As smoke is blown away, so You blow [them] away. As wax melts before the fire, so the wicked are destroyed before God.

Like WAX that melts – Yahweh’s SCORCH PROPHECY remains in effect through the end time. ” but the rebellious live in a scorched land.”

Look around you. What is progressively happening to this planet?

Earthquake activity registered near the volcano meaning an eruption could be imminent, experts say.

An Icelandic volcano that could have a more devastating impact than the one that paralysed air traffic last year may erupt at any moment, experts have warned.

Seismologists are nervously watching rumblings beneath Katla, a volcano on the southern edge of the north Atlantic island nation, which could mean an eruption is imminent.

Katla is a much bigger volcano than nearby Eyjafjallajokul, the 2010 eruption of which cost airlines £1.27billion after ash grounded flights across Europe.

Named after an evil troll, Katla has a larger magma chamber than Eyjafjallajokul’s. Its last major eruption in 1918 continued more than a month, turning day into night, starving crops of sunlight and killing off some livestock.

The eruption melted some of the ice-sheet covering Katla, flooding surrounding farmlands with a torrent of water that some accounts have said measured as wide as the Amazon.

Now, clusters of small earthquakes are being detected around Katla, which means an eruption could be imminent, seismologists say.

Worryingly, earthquakes have been growing in strength: after a long period of magnitude three tremors, a magnitude four quake was detected last week.

‘It is definitely showing signs of restlessness,’ said Piall Einarsson, a professor of geophysics at the University of Iceland, who added that the Eyjafjallajokul was ‘small’, despite its impact.

Teams of seismologists and geologists at the university are now working with disaster officials to prepare nearby communities like Vik, a small town of some 300 people that is flanked by black sand beaches.

Disaster officials have drafted an evacuation plan and set aside temporary housing, but many fear they may have less than an hour to evacuate once the volcano erupts. – Mail Online

City Confronts ‘Occupy Dallas’ Protesters

October 14, 2011 Comments off

If people are going to demonstrate - NOT RIOT, because that will only cause more problems – then demonstrate for what will turn the United States around and help to bring it back to what it once was. People create the problems, and people can fix them. So, if you prefer this Country over Christ’s Millennium, then get out there and demonstrate for the changes that will make a difference. Don’t riot, because that will only cause your Country to fall that much deeper into the pit it’s already in.

DALLAS (CN) – Occupy Wall Street has spread to Dallas, where members of Occupy Dallas sued the city in Federal Court, claiming the city unconstitutionally restricted “their right to peacably demonstrate in traditional public forums”. They seek an injunction allowing them to continue their weeklong protest at Pioneer Plaza.

Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City against economic inequality and corporate greed, protesters in Dallas have being living in a makeshift tent city in a park directly north of the Dallas Convention Center and west of Dallas City Hall.

The Occupy Dallas website says there are more than 120 people at the site.

In their complaint, protesters say the city threatened to revoke their special-use permit unless they secure $1 million in liability insurance.

The protesters say their protest is not a “special event” under city ordinances, and they do not need a special-use permit to exercise their First Amendment rights.

The city disagrees.

The Dallas Morning News reported on Tuesday night that city spokesman Frank Librio had sent “an email blast,” stating: “The city had an agreement with Occupy Dallas to remain on the public property provided standard insurance coverage was obtained. The group did not meet the insurance requirements per the agreement. Therefore, the agreement is no longer applicable. The city will begin enforcing local laws (for example: park curfews and sleeping in public).”

So far, there have been no arrests.

City Councilman Dwayne Caraway told WFAA-TV on Wednesday that “nothing has happened because it’s been given time to try to work things through. If [attorneys for both sides] fail to get it worked through, or show effort toward trying to work it through, then the city has a right to go in and protect the property.”
Attorneys for the protesters say no insurance company could be found to write the policy.

Michael Prestonise, a 26-year-old freelance web designer and protester, told the Huffington Post that the dispute centers around toilets at the protest site.

“This is all about sanitation and health and safety of our members,” he said. “I think the more real threat is our people having to walk through the streets at 3, 4 a.m. just to find a public restroom.”

A ruling on the plaintiffs’ motion is expected today (Friday), by U.S. District Judge Jane Boyle. – CourthouseNews.com

Will Israel bomb Iran without notifying the US?

October 13, 2011 Comments off

Shared with this ministry by Seraiah, 2nd in Command of the LOZ, in 2010 was a warning of what was to come: “The European Union will pull itself together and make a move on the chess board. They will move into the dominate position in a pushing match against China and the Middle East. Israel will come under attack and be overrun when the U.S. falters in power.”

Would it be wise to get out of the cities when this occurs?

“Yes. Just as the prophecy to the Israelite’s to leave the city when they see what is happening, now applies to all cities. Be armed and be prepared to defend yourself as you exit. As this culminates, all power grids will go down. Mass hysteria will feed off of itself. Death will become rampant as people are killed and as many more commit suicide. The military will try and roadblock the cities to keep people in. They will try to bring order but will come under attack from within with turncoats and as military bases fall to subversive groups.”

The danger is that Netanyahu may seek to break out of the current political isolation by mounting a spectacular attack.

In recent weeks, intense discussions have taken place in Israeli military and intelligence circles about whether or not to launch a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities. Apparently, the key question in the debate was how to ensure that the United States took part in the attack or, at the very least, intervened on Israel’s side if the initial strike triggered a wider war.

Reports of these discussions have caused considerable alarm in Washington and in a number of European capitals. Some western military experts have been quoted as saying that the window of opportunity for an Israeli air attack on Iran will close within two months, since the onset of winter would make such an assault more difficult.

Concern that Israel may decide to attack without giving the US prior warning is thought to be the main reason for the visit to Tel Aviv on October 3 of the US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta. His aim seems to have been to rein in the Israeli hawks.

Amos Harel of the Israeli daily Haaretz summed up Panetta’s message as follows: America is standing by Israel, but an uncoordinated Israeli strike on Iran could spark a regional war. The US will work to defend Israel, but Israel must behave responsibly.

At his joint press conference with Israel’s Defence Minister Ehud Barak, Panetta said: “The US is very concerned, and we will work together to do whatever is necessary to keep Iran from posing a threat to the region. But doing so depends on the countries working together.” He repeated the word ‘together’ several times. In other words, Israel should not act without an American green light.

In recent years, Israel has often threatened to attack Iran. Why has the subject been revived this time? Is Israel worried that Iran is close to acquiring the capability to manufacture a nuclear bomb? Most intelligence experts agree that Iran has not yet made a decision to build nuclear weapons. A more likely Israeli motive is its concern that the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany — the so-called P5+1 — may accept an Iranian offer of renewed talks.

Israel’s greatest fear is that the P5+1 will reach a compromise with Iran which would allow it to continue enriching uranium for civilian purposes. This might then lead in due course to the world agreeing to co-exist with a nuclear Iran. If that were to happen, Israel’s monopoly of nuclear weapons — a key asset in maintaining its regional military supremacy — would be lost. – GulfNews

16 Killed As Tropical Depression Hits Guatemala

October 13, 2011 Comments off

Isaiah 28:18 “Your deal with Death will be dissolved, and your agreement with Sheol will not last.When the overwhelming scourge passes through, you will be trampled.”

Father is the deal breaker of Satan’s workings by the one that She trusts the most.

Isaiah 28:2 “Look, the Lord has a strong and mighty one like a devastating hail storm, like a storm with strong flooding waters. He will bring it across the land with [His] hand.”

Michael the Archangel using his power to overcome Father’s adversaries. Michael is the chess piece that faces off with Father’s Chief Adversary.

At least sixteen people were killed on Wednesday when torrential rains from a tropical depression hit several regions of Guatemala, officials said. The death toll is expected to rise.

Tropical Depression 12-E formed near the Mexico-Guatemala border on early Wednesday morning, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) southeast of Salina Cruz in Mexico, triggering Guatemala’s National Disaster Reduction Coordination Center to activate a nationwide red alert.

The heavy rainfall began on Tuesday night and continued into Wednesday, causing landslides, overflowing rivers, and accidents. The depression is expected to weaken and dissipate on Wednesday evening, forecasters said, but the harsh weather is expected to continue into Thursday.

Among the 16 confirmed deaths in Guatemala, four were electrocuted and one was buried in the municipality of Almolonga in the Quetzaltenango department. Several others died after their homes collapsed, while rescue workers recovered a couple of bodies from a river in Chiquimulilla, a municipality in the Santa Rosa department.

The most affected regions include Quetzaltenango, Santa Rosa, Jutiapa, and Totonicapan, as well as other scattered areas in the country. More than 130,000 people in Guatemala have been affected by the severe weather, but there were no immediate reports of casualties from Mexico. – IrishWeatherOnline

Recent UFO Sightings from Around the World

October 13, 2011 2 comments

Are all these unidentified crafts of demonic origin? Some sightings are demons grouped together while others are the USA testing out highly advanced mechanical spacecraft that work in a similar fashion. Yes, there is a phenomenal buildup of UFO’s and Aliens in popular media. One of the main reasons is to to pull people away from their Christian faith by planting a seed of doubt in the public’s mind: What if the Theory of Evolution was true? What if we did evolve from an one-cell organism? It is an attempt to destroy the beliefs of all Christians (The Spiritual Israelites) on the planet.

Another reason is to condition the public to think in terms of good aliens (friendly beings who want to teach warring humans to live in peace) vs bad aliens (alien invasion). The Spiritual War that has been raging for 6,000 years is between the Sons of Light (Yahweh’s angelic warriors) against sons of darkness (Satan and his fallen angels/demons).

Let’s reason things out: Dawn Lucifer who followed through his plan to usurp our Creator’s Sovereignty and became Satan, wants peace and harmony for this planet. Do you think he and his followers, both angelic and human, want the Righteous Kingdom of Christ to be established? Of course not! Yahweh will allow no peace on earth until Her Son’s Kingdom is established. The Lions of Zion (LOZ), Yahweh’s elite angelic warriors, are chosen to administer the Wrath of Yahweh – the kingdoms of this planet will be crushed! There will be an invasion (Fight for Planet Earth – Southern Storm Operation) which will culminate into the Battle of Ages! The Lions of Zion (LOZ), Yahweh’s elite angelic warriors, are behind many of the recent sightings. The many sightings of unidentified crafts filling the sky around the globe will escalate to the point that no government can deny that the entirety of this planet is being visited.

In summary: there are people that believe all of the unidentified crafts are of demonic origin. This simply isn’t true. You have the holy angels that are causing these sightings, and you have the U.S. government that is so far advanced that they are privately engaged against the holy crafts in a game of cat and mouse, trying to either capture or shoot them down. But one thing they know for certain, they cannot out maneuver the holy side no matter how hard they try. The truth is this: Yahweh is going to leave no doubt as to who these crafts belong to. And when they have learned the facts, they will curse our God, because then they will know who they are really dealing with. It is then during that period of time Satan will offer his plan to fight off Mother’s forces. They will willingly come under Satan’s guidance. Not because he fools them, but because they will need his help desperately to try and survive the onslaught that Mother plans to strike those left on this planet with. At that time his powers will be back intact and useful to him. It is not without reason the masses curse God in this end time. They will do it because She brings much pain and suffering, even now, but when they know that for certain, they will despise Her and curse Her name for the pain. Christ is the only Hope out of this world destined for destruction.

Chinese fury as US Senate passes currency bill

October 13, 2011 Comments off

China can sink the United States economically without firing a shot. Satan’s own pawns have maneuvered themselves into losing positions. Things will steadily go down hill. There is no climbing back out of this pit. All countries except for the E.U. and China will be bankrupt as this fall continues. Those two kingdoms will push against one another until war breaks out.

China has a right as one of the U.S. largest lenders to inspect its gold reserve. Not if, but when that happens, the real truth of this country being bankrupt will come to the light.

The US Senate has passed a bill to punish China for alleged currency manipulation, a move Beijing slammed as a “time-bomb” that could start a trade war between the world’s top two economies.

Long frustrated at the alleged job-killing impact of China’s forex regime, Democratic and Republican senators came together Tuesday to pass the bill, but it faces bleak prospects in the Republican-led House of Representatives.

“We are in trade war. But today we’re fighting back,” saidDemocratic Senator Sherrod Brown, one of the bill’s champions, defying the White House’s refusal to back the bill at a time of renewed global economic unease.

The proposal, powered by a tide of US voter frustration at a sour economy and high unemployment ahead of November 2012 elections, envisions retaliatory duties on Chinese exports if the value of the yuan is unfairly “misaligned”.

But Republican House Speaker John Boehner has signaled that he will not bring the legislation to a vote, calling it “dangerous” to economic relations.

China, accusing the US senators of scapegoating it during an election year, said the bill flouted World Trade Organization rules and would “seriously” harm relations between the world’s number one and number two economies.

“It is a serious breach of WTO rules, which cannot solve the US’s own economic and employment issues, and will… seriously interfere with Sino-US economic and trade relations,” said foreign ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu.

The official Xinhua news agency said “what the US Senate did planted a ticking time-bomb that may ignite a potential trade war between the world’s two largest economies.”

President Barack Obama last week accused China of “gaming the trade system” in a way that hurts the US economy, but declined to back the legislation and worried it could violate WTO rules.

Many in Washington agree that China keeps the yuan unfairly low against the dollar, giving its goods an edge of as much as 30 percent over similar US products, widening the trade deficit and costing American jobs.

But the measure’s opponents, stressing the bill’s toll on China ties, also warn that a rise in the yuan would boost manufacturing and jobs in countries such as Vietnam or Malaysia — and not in the United States. – Yahoo News

Lackluster economy could lead to next gold rush

October 12, 2011 Comments off

The European Union will be the first to reorganize the currency into an international medium, and then other countries will follow. The United States will have no choice, because sooner or later, the people of the USA are going to march on Fort Knox demanding an accounting of its contents. And Seraiah and Michael have both been inside the vault, and there is no gold belonging to the United States. What little is inside, it is being held in trust. With nothing backing the currency, and the USA setting its value by supply and demand, the dollar is really valueless.

If the Fed decides to try and fake the gold bars, and there is a metal similar to the weight of gold, simply drilling a few bars will tell the story.

Is gold the answer?

With the nation smothered in debt, crippled by unemployment and financed by dollar bills backed by nothing more than the faith of the public, some conservatives are calling for a return to the gold standard.

At The Heritage Foundation’s Conference on a Stable Dollar last week, former Bush economic adviser and Federal Reserve Governor Larry Lindsey said the weight of history leaned toward gold.

The country moved to a fiat currency during the Civil War and then restored the gold standard years later, he noted, pointing out that this kind of back-and-forth is natural.

“I’m sure we’ll do it again,” Lindsey said. “Probably in the next 10 years.”

His reason for the reversal is both disturbing and unsurprising.

American families took on too much debt during the housing bubble. The government responded to the ensuing meltdown by leveraging up its own balance sheet by trillions of dollars. And the strain of navigating through the debt is more than the Fed’s Open Market Committee, which controls the money supply, can endure.

While Lindsey believes the Fed has done an admirable job, he doubts the 19-member committee can resolve the competing pressures better than a dollar pegged to gold.

“None of these guys are gods,” he said. “Nineteen men trying to adjudicate these demands will disappoint society.”

President Richard M. Nixon officially ended the gold standard more than 30 years ago. While the precious metal can foster a stable currency, it can also have downsides. A reliance on gold limits how much money could be flushed into the economy during a downturn, one of the key strategies for combating a recession.

Reintroducing the gold standard, though, has yet to catch fire with most Republican presidential candidates.

Most of them have called for the resignation of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, but only the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Herman Cain, has endorsed the gold standard, according to the American Principles Project.

Still, Americans are increasingly enthralled by gold’s luster, even if some presidential candidates are not.

An August survey by Gallup Poll found that 34 percent of those questioned considered gold to be the best long-term investment, beating out real estate, stocks, conventional savings accounts and bonds.

It’s not that big a surprise, given that the precious metal has increased in recent years to more than $1,600 an ounce on Comex.

Gallup suggested two explanations for gold’s popularity: Either it’s caught in an investment bubble, or it reflects a “growing lack of confidence in the U.S. economy.”

Longtime gold standard advocate Lewis Lehrman said the current crisis could change the opinion of political leaders.

“Everything,” he said, “depends on the extent of the disintegration and the desperation of American voters.” – Politico.com

Canary Islands residents evacuated amid fears of seabed volcano eruption

October 12, 2011 Comments off

“Be prepared for the worst that nature has to offer.”

Our God, Yahweh, IS nature. So when it is said that these are “natural occurrences” they are both right and wrong. Right in that yes, they are natural occurrences, but wrong in that they are nothing but the evolving process of the planet we live on.

Ecclesiastes 2:14 The wise man has eyes in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. Yet I also knew that one fate comes to them both.

It is foolish behavior to deny, ignore or dismiss the warnings that come from Yahweh, who disciplines His children and righteously judges them as well. It is equally foolish to deny, ignore or dismiss our Creator, Yahweh, whom we depend upon for our very lives. To do so, is to walk in darkness.

The regional government of the Canary Islands has begun evacuating the small town of La Restinga, on the island of El Hierro, and raised its earthquake warning level amid evidence that a volcano is erupting deep on the nearby seabed.

Approximately 600 inhabitants of the fishing port on the island’s south coast were being told to congregate at a local sports field for evacuation on Tuesday.

Scientists have reported that a volcanic eruption is taking place about 5km (3.1 miles) off the coast at a depth of 600 (1,960ft) to 1,000 metres.

The only visible evidence of the eruption is reported to be dead fish that have floated to the surface. The fish had probably been killed by gas escaping from the volcano, scientists said.

After months of continuous earth tremors on the island, vulcanologists had said there was a reasonable chance of an eruption somewhere near or under El Hierro.

That eruption seems to have started on Monday, pushing hot lava and gases up through the seabed.

With the eruption deep down and several miles away under the sea, the danger to local people and tourists who travel to La Restinga for the diving was considered to be minimal – but authorities today decided to carry out their evacuation plans in case that changed.

The decision was made “due to the possibility that the centre of the eruption might move closer to the coast,” the Canary Islands government said in a statement.

Regional government safety chief Juan Manuel Santana told reporters on Tuesday that raising the alert level from yellow to red – the second and third steps of a four-step system – was also a preventative measure. – The Guardian

German satellite hurtles towards Earth: officials

October 12, 2011 2 comments

“Complete communication battery powered and satellite failures, and the loss of all power grids will be how the LOZ combat Satan’s latest plan to keep his prized child in tack.”

This is the third satellite in just over a month’s time. The LOZ reports: “Rain. Raining satellites. This is just the beginning.”

The x-ray observatory, named ROSAT, is expected to return to Earth between October 20 and 25, travelling at a speed of around 28,000 kilometres (17,000 miles) per hour, the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) said in a statement.

“The latest studies reveal that it is possible that up to 30 individual pieces weighing a total of 1.6 tonnes may reach the surface of the Earth,” the DLR said in a statement on its website.

“The time and location of re-entry cannot be predicted precisely,” added the agency, citing fluctuations in solar activity for the uncertainty.

The satellite could re-enter the atmosphere three days before or after this range, the DLR said, stressing there was very little danger to humans.

Last month, a bus-sized US satellite that hurtled unpredictably toward Earth crossed over Africa and the northern Atlantic before plunging into the Pacific Ocean off California, NASA said.

There were no sightings or reliable accounts of damage as the six-tonne Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) fell from the sky. – Physorg.com

Occupy L.A. Speaker: Violence will be Necessary to Achieve Our Goals

October 12, 2011 5 comments

This ministry continues to sound the warning.

The rioting will soon invade the news as Americans vent their frustrations and feeling of being treated as cattle. Military intervention will occur and Marshal law will be declared as the citizens of the United States have lost their jobs and will then lose their liberties.

Do not oppose the government of the United States. Await Yahweh’s army to liberate Christ’s followers.

“If you are military or police anywhere in this world and you take up arms against your citizens you are fighting against your Creator. You will be putting your life in with Satan’s. He will eventually lose his life for eternity, but your life will be extinguished early by the LOZ forces that are going to take up the fight for the remnant, and you will not only lose your precious life, but any remembrance of you will also be extinguished as you are cast out of creation into the dark pit of oblivion. Be forewarned. Your future existence depends on your actions and you heart condition. Either choice you make, also know this: YOU CANNOT WIN OUT IN COMBATING THE LOZ.”

Citizen journalist Ringo captured this speaker at the Occupy Los Angeles camp a few days ago letting the cat out of the bag: After dismissing nonviolence as a dead end, he admits that for the Occupiers to achieve their goals, violence and bloodshed will be necessary:

Here’s a transcript, starting at 32 seconds into the video:


Occupy L.A. Speaker: “One of the speakers said the solution is nonviolent movement. No, my friend. I’ll give you two examples: French Revolution, and Indian so-called Revolution.

Gandhi, Gandhi today is, with respect to all of you, Gandhi today is a tumor that the ruling class is using constantly to mislead us. French Revolution made fundamental transformation. But it was bloody.

India, the result of Gandhi, is 600 million people living in maximum poverty.

So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.

Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”

Crowd: [Cheers.]


Incredibly, he praises the massacres of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror rather than Gandhi’s nonviolent philosophy.

And the crowd laps it up.

Every single day, more videos emerge from the Occupy movement showing people saying things that, if they had been said by a Tea Partier, would have been front-page news for weeks and discredited the movement forever. But since it’s the Occupy Wall Street movement, darlings of the media and Democratic politicians, they get a pass. – The PJ Tatler

Buckle Up: America Is Getting Very Angry And The Protests Are Going To Become Much More Frightening

The Occupy Wall Street protests and the rise of the Tea Party movement have both changed America, but you haven’t seen anything yet. You better buckle up, because America is getting very angry and as the economy continues to decline the economic protests are going to become much more frightening in the years ahead. Americans have become very accustomed to prosperity. Now that our prosperity is vanishing, people are starting to become very angry. The scary thing is that the vast majority of our population now lives in tightly congested urban areas. That makes the potential for mass rioting and civil unrest much greater. Back in 1910, 72 percent of Americans lived in rural areas. Today, only 16 percent of Americans live in rural areas. So what happens when you have millions of incredibly angry people crammed into tightly congested metropolitan areas? Well, we are about to find out.

Over the past 4 years, we have seen some unprecedented things happen in America. First we witnessed the rise of the Tea Party movement. Initially it pretty much was a true grassroots movement but now it has been mostly taken over by establishment Republicans. Now we are witnessing the rise of Occupy Wall Street. While there are some grassroots elements to it, the reality is that Occupy Wall Street seems to be pretty much controlled by the Democrats. In fact, one individual was recently told that “Ron Paul signs are not welcome here” at a recent protest.

So we have the left and the right fighting with each other like cats and dogs. The Tea Party movement and Occupy Wall Street both pretty much hate each other.

Meanwhile, those that control both political parties are enjoying the view.

But the people that are expressing their anger through protest movements such as Occupy Wall Street are not going to be content with the status quo for long.

The truth is that there is a lot of anger in the United States today, and that anger is rapidly growing. Millions upon millions of Americans are deeply upset about the economy and about our financial system.

Right now, protests by both the Tea Party movement and Occupy Wall Street have been mostly peaceful.

But that will not last indefinitely.

In fact, there are already signs that Occupy Wall Street protesters are not content with simply sitting in the park and banging on drums.

For example, protesters stormed the Senate Hart Office Building in Washington D.C. today. A handful of protesters were arrested.

Also, more than 50 protesters from the Occupy Boston movement were arrested today when they would not do what police were ordering them to do.

But most notable of all was the march to the homes of certain millionaires up in New York. Earlier today, Occupy Wall Street protesters marched to the homes of Jamie Dimon, David Koch, John Paulson, Howard Milstein, and Rupert Murdoch.

Needless to say, that is going to seriously upset some people.

The home protests were not spontaneous. The truth is that they were highly organized. Organizers such as SEIU board member Stephen Lerner have been talking about them for quite some time. In fact, you can hear him discussing plans for the upcoming protests at the homes of these millionaires back on October 3rd right here.

There is a lot about Occupy Wall Street that can be criticized (just check out this article), but one thing that Occupy Wall Street is actually doing right is that it is focusing on the role of money in politics.

The big financial powers spend hundreds of millions of dollars on political campaigns. Just check out this infographic. All of that money buys a lot of influence over the political process. If it didn’t, the big financial powers would not be spending that kind of money.

But the big financial powers are not just spending money on political campaigns. It has now come out that the big Wall Street banks can order New York City police officers just like they would order pizzas. In fact, over a million dollars is going to be spent this way just this year alone.

A recent article that was posted on counterpunch.org detailed how this works….

One of the ingenious methods that has remained below the public’s radar was started by the Rudy Giuliani administration in New York City in 1998. It’s called the Paid Detail Unit and it allows the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street corporations, including those repeatedly charged with crimes, to order up a flank of New York’s finest with the ease of dialing the deli for a pastrami on rye.

The corporations pay an average of $37 an hour (no medical, no pension benefit, no overtime pay) for a member of the NYPD, with gun, handcuffs and the ability to arrest. The officer is indemnified by the taxpayer, not the corporation.

New York City gets a 10 percent administrative fee on top of the $37 per hour paid to the police. The City’s 2011 budget called for $1,184,000 in Paid Detail fees, meaning private corporations were paying wages of $11.8 million to police participating in the Paid Detail Unit. The program has more than doubled in revenue to the city since 2002.

So expect the big Wall Street banks to be sending in orders for huge numbers of New York City cops to protect them from the half-crazed Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Sadly, if recent poll numbers are any indication, the anger of the American people is not going to abate any time soon….

*According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans that lack confidence in U.S. banks is now at an all-time high of 36%.

*According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, 90 percent of Americans believe that the economy is performing poorly and approximately 80 percent of Americans believe that it is “difficult” to find a job right now.

*According to a recent Rasmussen survey, 48 percent of all Americans believe that reductions in government spending are “at least somewhat likely” to result in civil unrest inside the United States.

*Another recent survey found that 73 percent of all Americans believe that the nation is “on the wrong track”.

*According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Congress has a disapproval rating of 82%.

*A recent Rasmussen survey found that 85 percent of Americans believe that members of Congress “are more interested in helping their own careers than in helping other people”, and that same survey found that 46 percent of the American people believe that most members of Congress are corrupt.

*According to a different Rasmussen survey, only 17 percent of all Americans now believe that the U.S. government has the consent of the governed.

*A recent Washington Post poll found that 78 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the way this country’s political system is working” and that only 26 percent of Americans now believe that the federal government can solve the economic problems that we are facing.

So what does all of that add up to?

It adds up to a U.S. population that is very frustrated and that is looking for outlets for that frustration.

As the U.S. economy continues to fall apart, that frustration is going to continue to rise.

What we are seeing all across America is only the beginning. We are going to see protest movements and explosions of anger that we can’t even imagine right now.

Dark days are coming for America.

You better buckle up. – EndofTheAmericanDream.com

Not a Single Christian Church Left in Afghanistan, Says State Department

October 11, 2011 1 comment

(CNSNews.com) – There is not a single, public Christian church left in Afghanistan, according to the U.S. State Department.

This reflects the state of religious freedom in that country ten years after the United States first invaded it and overthrew its Islamist Taliban regime.

In the intervening decade, U.S. taxpayers have spent $440 billion to support Afghanistan’s new government and more than 1,700 U.S. military personnel have died serving in that country.

The last public Christian church in Afghanistan was razed in March 2010, according to the State Department’s latest International Religious Freedom Report. The report, which was released last month and covers the period of July 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010, also states that “there were no Christian schools in the country.”

“There is no longer a public Christian church; the courts have not upheld the church’s claim to its 99-year lease, and the landowner destroyed the building in March [2010],” reads the State Department report on religious freedom. “[Private] chapels and churches for the international community of various faiths are located on several military bases, PRTs [Provincial Reconstruction Teams], and at the Italian embassy. Some citizens who converted to Christianity as refugees have returned.”

In recent times, freedom of religion has declined in Afghanistan, according to the State Department.

“The government’s level of respect for religious freedom in law and in practice declined during the reporting period, particularly for Christian groups and individuals,” reads the State Department report.

“Negative societal opinions and suspicion of Christian activities led to targeting of Christian groups and individuals, including Muslim converts to Christianity,” said the report. “The lack of government responsiveness and protection for these groups and individuals contributed to the deterioration of religious freedom.”

Most Christians in the country refuse to “state their beliefs or gather openly to worship,” said the State Department. – CNSNews

Subsea Volcanic Eruption Underway Near El Hierro (The Canary Islands)

October 10, 2011 Comments off

Those that perished at the great flood drowned, but this time, it is going to be a burn off for those left behind. After the nations are crushed, Yahweh is going to make certain nothing and no one survives.

The earth is about to become barren as Yahweh prepares it for a complete change after the great earthquake. All of Satan’s footprint will be decimated and removed.

A submarine volcanic eruption is taking place approximately 5 kilometres off the southern coast of El Hierro, the smallest of The Canary Islands.

The Mayor of La Frontera (El Hierro), David Cabrera, confirmed in an interview on Radio iron Garoé that ‘underwater eruption’ is taking place about 900 metres beneath the sea surface five kilometres south of La Restinga. The eruption has been ongoing for four hours, the Mayor said.

Spanish newspaper laopionion.es quoted the Minister of emergencies of the Cabildo of El Hierro, Maria of Carmen Morales, as saying the eruption is taking place because ‘the seismic movement of 4.3 occurred on Saturday afternoon caused a fissure, from where the energy is been released’. Scientists remain unclear if the emissions are gas or lava.

A meeting of PEVOLCA – Actualidad Volcánica de Canarias, comprising representatives of Instituto Geografico Nacional (IGN) and The Canary Islands Government, took place on the Spanish Island. In a statement issued shortly before 4 p.m. local time, the IGN stated (translated from spanish language press release): “…although there is no certainty that at the moment is producing an underwater volcanic eruption, since the last morning there has been a release of fluids and volcanic gas on the southern coast of the island.”

“Scientists from IGN have reported to the direction of the Plan all the indicators that have been analyzed to point towards the possibility of the beginning of an eruptive process that has changed the type of waves that have registered seismographs in the last hours, implying the beginning of emission of gases or lava…”

“The helicopter of the emergency and rescue of the Government of the Canary Islands (GES) group has done reconnaissance flights during the morning without exit of volcanic material to the surface.”

“Although this activity is not exposed to, the direction of the PEVOLCA encourages people to perform their usual tasks normally and to remain attentive to any unusual activity”, the statement added.

Meanwhile, La Agencia Estatal (CSIC) scientists equipped with special detection cameras have been making numerous sorties over coastal areas of El Hierro in an attempt to verify the existence and scale of the underwater eruption. This is Spain’s first volcanic eruption since 1971 when the erupted of the Teneguía volcano  on the island of La Palma (Canary Islands), located to the north of El Hierro.

Initial reports of the eruption were received from crews on board four separate ships. On Monday afternoon, Terra Noticias/Agencia EFE reported that an eruption occurred 2000 metres below sea level in the Las Calmas sea at 10.43 local time (05:43 EDT).  Spanish newspaper El Mundo placed the depth of the eruption at 13oo metres.

The eruption takes place amidst an unprecedented earthquake swarm in El Hierro. The number of earthquakes recorded since July 17, 2011 on El Hierro has now exceeded 10,000. - Irish Weather Online

US food supply threatened: Foreign insects, diseases

October 10, 2011 Comments off

The one world currency will soon come into reality, and shortages of food and other items of rationing will require that anyone whom purchases them must have complied with the world government’s mandate so that no one can steal someone else identity and purchase additional items so as to hoard or black market them. Enters the new age of Satan’s mark of the beast. 666 representing the number of a man, being in alignment with Satan as the new ruling authority over all of mankind. Computer chips will be implanted, or Satan’s law will dictate that those refusing must be eliminated.

Dozens of foreign insects and plant diseases slipped undetected into the United States in the years after 9/11, when authorities were so focused on preventing another attack that they overlooked a pest explosion that threatened the quality of the nation’s food supply.

At the time, hundreds of agricultural scientists responsible for stopping invasive species at the border were reassigned to anti-terrorism duties in the newly formed Homeland Security Department — a move that scientists say cost billions of dollars in crop damage and eradication efforts from California vineyards to Florida citrus groves.

The consequences come home to consumers in the form of higher grocery prices, substandard produce and the risk of environmental damage from chemicals needed to combat the pests.

An Associated Press analysis of inspection records found that border-protection officials were so engrossed in stopping terrorists that they all but ignored the country’s exposure to destructive new insects and infections — a quietly growing menace that has been attacking fruits and vegetables and even prized forests ever since.

“Whether they know it or not, every person in the country is affected by this, whether by the quality or cost of their food, the pesticide residue on food or not being able to enjoy the outdoors because beetles are killing off the trees,” said Mark Hoddle, an entomologist specializing in invasive species at the University of California, Riverside.

Homeland Security officials acknowledge making mistakes and say they are now working to step up agricultural inspections at border checkpoints, airports and seaports.

While not as dire as terrorism, the threat is considerable and hard to contain.

Many invasive species are carried into the U.S. by people who are either unaware of the laws or are purposely trying to skirt quarantine regulations. The hardest to stop are fruits, vegetables and spices carried by international travelers or shipped by mail. If tainted with insects or infections, they could carry contagions capable of devastating crops.

Plants and cut flowers can harbor larvae, as can bags of bulk commodities such as rice. Beetles have been found hitchhiking on the bottom of tiles from Italy, and boring insects have burrowed into the wooden pallets commonly used in cargo shipments.

A look at the damage:

  • No fewer than 19 Mediterranean fruit fly infestations took hold in California, and the European grapevine moth triggered spraying and quarantines across wine country.
  • The Asian citrus psyllid, which can carry a disease that has decimated Florida orange groves, crossed the border from Mexico, threatening California’s $1.8 billion citrus industry.
  • New Zealand’s light brown apple moth also emerged in California, prompting the government in 2008 to bombard the Monterey Bay area with 1,600 pounds of pesticides. The spraying drew complaints that it caused respiratory problems and killed birds. Officials spent $110 million to eradicate the moth, but it didn’t work.
  • The sweet orange scab, a fungal disease that infects citrus, appeared in Florida, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, which all imposed quarantines.
  • Chili thrips, rice cutworms and the plant disease gladiolus rust also got into Florida, which saw a 27 percent increase in new pests and pathogens between 2003 and 2007.
  • The erythrina gall wasp decimated Hawaii’s wiliwili trees, which bear seeds used to make leis.
  • Forests from Minnesota to the Northeast were also affected by beetles such as the emerald ash borer, many of which arrived in Chinese shipping pallets because regulations weren’t enforced.
In all, the number of pest cases intercepted at U.S. ports of entry fell from more than 81,200 in 2002 to fewer than 58,500 in 2006, before creeping back up in 2007, when the farm industry and members of Congress began complaining. – MSNBC

Fukushima survives huge aftershock

October 10, 2011 Comments off

Originally shared by this ministry in July & August 2011: The Japanese government wishes to keep the truth from their people just as Satan wishes to keep the truth from mankind, but we declare it here loudly and freely, sharing truth with those who seek it.

Japan will soon be faced with an insurmountably wave of people that are suffering from radiation sickness. They were chosen as a doomed example for the rest of the world to look upon and ponder their own eventual fates.

A 5.5-magnitude earthquake has hit Japan’s Fukushima area, but officials say the region’s crippled nuclear plant remains stable.

The offshore quake struck today at 11.45am (1345 AEDT) off Fukushima prefecture in the country’s north, at a depth of 30.2km, the US Geological Survey said.

A tsunami was not expected, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, while there were no reports of damage.

Nuclear plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said that the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant remained stable.

“We are not seeing any new abnormality” at the facility, where work is ongoing to bring reactors to a cold shutdown by the end of this year, a TEPCO spokesman said.

Skyscrapers in Tokyo, some 245km away, were slightly rocked by the tremor.

A 9.0-magnitude earthquake on March 11 triggered a monster tsunami which killed some 20,000 people and crippled the cooling systems at Fukushima, causing meltdowns in some of its reactors.

Radiation leaked into the air, soil and sea around the plant, forcing tens of thousands of people to evacuate their homes.

Hundreds of powerful aftershocks have shaken the region since the March quake. – The Australian

Occupy Wall St.’s drumbeat grows louder

October 10, 2011 Comments off

“A plan of action: It is now wise if each of you have not already done so, to purchase dry products such as rice, beans, canned foods, bottled water, first aid kit and be prepared to remain in seclusion for a period of time. When things come to a head and break loose upon this Country, those things will not be available for a considerable length of time. The United States has a secret plan to reopen closed military bases for incarceration of those demonstrating against the United States government. For you own present welfare, please do not take part in any of the coming surges of unrest. An iron fist is what awaits those that rise up. Oppression of Satan’s unjust world is only the beginning of the nightmare awaiting mankind, but deliverance will come through Yahweh’s army of heavenly hosts. We are not blind to your dilemma or your cries of desperation. As things culminate into the mire of a feeling of desolation, Yahweh the Warrior will rise up and deliver Her people. Be patient and ever diligent towards your coming deliverance from Satan’s hell on earth.” Bebai, LOZ

The drumbeat of the Occupy Wall Street protest is growing louder and wider.

“Wall Street got bailed out, and we all got sold out!”

From the streets of New York … to the nation’s capital … to the South (Mobile, Ala., Jacksonville, Fla.) and West (Portland, Ore.), Americans are frustrated and making their voices heard.

“Wealthy individuals who own giant corporations have bought off our Congress and bought off our government and, you know, the people no longer have a voice anymore,” one protester told CBS News.

The marchers come from all walks of life – young and old, male and female, hoping their lawmakers are listening.

“I think the message is obvious,” said Jesse Lagreca, 38. “The wealthiest one percent is taking advantage of working class people. They’ve been selling us faulty financial products, they’ve been taking huge bonuses while depending on society to bail them out.”

CBSMoneywatch’s Jill Schlesinger points out that, according to economists at Northeastern University, corporate profits represented 88 percent of the growth in real national income between the 2Q of 2009 and 4Q of 2010, during the same period aggregate wages and salaries accounted for just over 1 percent. “The money that companies have earned during the recovery has mostly stayed within corporate America,” writes Schlesinger, “and has not trickled down into higher wages, nor has it created enough jobs to put some of the 14 million unemployed Americans back to work.”

“Ninety-nine percent of the people need to be prospering, not just the top one percent,” said Michael Mulgrew, president of New York City’s United Federation of Teachers.

“Every community knows they’re hurting, what’s going on is wrong, and it’s time to stop this and make a difference, and do things that allow all people to prosper.”

On “The Early Show” Monday, Former Senator Russell Feingold, D-Wis., said of the protests spreading across the country, “I’m not just pleased about it, I’m excited about it.”

He reflected on the pro-labor demonstrations in Wisconsin earlier this year that were sparked by the governor’s fight to take away collective bargaining rights from public sector workers in his state. “We did it here, and I think this is going to happen all over the country,” Feingold said, “because people have been kicked when they are down, over and over again. You can only kick people so long before they react.

“This is time now for accountability, and this is a good way to show people how strongly we feel. The working people of this country have been treated very brutally and it has to change.” – CBSNews

Prime minister says Egypt ‘scrambling’ after at least 23 killed in clashes

October 9, 2011 Comments off

Do you believe that this cannot happen here in the U.S.? Do you think that all protests will remain peaceful? If so…wait. 

The first time around during Egypt’s protests, the United States said that the Egyptian government should respect the people that are protesting. But when it happens here, will the U.S. hold that view or will they use force against their citizens to try and regain control?

That control will never again be under this present government. The people of the United States are destined to come under the new Rome’s citizenship.

Cairo (CNN) – Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf said Monday that clashes hours earlier between army forces and pro-Coptic Christian protesters had “brought us back” to the tense, violent period at the onset of the recent revolution.

“Instead of going forward, we found ourselves scrambling for security,” Sharaf said on state television in an early morning speech, noting that the incident had produced “martyrs, both civilian and from the military.”

The bloodshed in Cairo occurred just over a week after the burning of a Coptic Christian church in southern Egypt. The burning prompted the Sunday protest demanding equality and protection of Coptic places of worship.

Dr. Sheriff Doss, the head of Egypt’s chief association of Coptics, said 17 civilians died and 40 were injured.

An additional 12 army troops were killed and over 50 were injured, according to Lt. Col. Amr Imam, an army spokesman.

Meanwhile, health ministry spokesman Adel Al Dawi said late Sunday that there were a total of 23 people dead and more than 180 injured.

The protesters — many of them Coptics or supportive of their cause — said they had been marching peacefully toward the Egyptian state television building when the violence erupted.

“Suddenly, we were attacked by thugs carrying swords and clubs,” one protester, Magdi Hanna, told CNN.

According to Alla Mahmoud, an interior ministry spokesman, some protesters began “firing live ammunition at the army.”

“This is the first time protesters fired at the army,” added Imam, the military spokesman. “There must be a hidden hand behind this. Egyptians don’t do that.”

Military trucks were later seen burning on the street as the clashes continued.

The January 25 youth revolution coalition, which has been involved in various anti-government protests including Sunday’s demonstration, denied that any participants shot at the Egyptian forces.

Samir Bolos, one of the demonstrators, added Sunday that “some unknown people may have fired at the army, but not us.”

Witnesses said the army forces fired on the protesters near the state television headquarters.

Hundreds of demonstrators also went to Tahrir Square, the hub of the revolutionary movement that led to the ouster of longtime Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak earlier this year, according to Bolos. He claimed military police stormed the square with sticks, while protesters fought back with rocks.

A curfew has been imposed for between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. Monday around Tahrir Square and central Cairo, said Imam.

Egypt’s National Justice Committee also plans to hold an emergency meeting Monday involving representatives from the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, the al-Azhar mosque and the Coptic church to discuss the developments, prime ministry spokesman Mohamed Hegazy said. Those talks will be held in the prime minister’s building.

Meanwhile, state TV reported Sunday night that Ahmed al-Tayyeb, a prominent Egyptian Muslim leader and grand imam of Al-Azhar, has been reaching out to Coptic church leaders in hopes of containing the crisis.

The protests and clashes follow the September 30 burning of the Mar Girgis church in Edfu, a city in Aswan governorate in southern Egypt.

That attack marked the latest of several examples in which Coptic Christians have been targeted in the North African nation.

About 9% of Egypt’s 80 million residents are Coptic Christians. They base their theology on the teachings of the Apostle Mark, who introduced Christianity to Egypt, according to St. Takla Church in Alexandria, the capital of Coptic Christianity.

The religion split with other Christians in the 5th century over the definition of the divinity of Jesus Christ.

In Egypt, they have been targeted of late, including the New Year’s Day bombing of a Coptic church in Alexandria that left 23 people dead. There have also been sectarian clashes, including one in Cairo on May 7 in which at least 12 people were killed.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, an independent bipartisan federal agency, earlier this year added Egypt to a list of countries named as the worst violators of religious freedom.

Sunday’s incident also marks the latest skirmish between protesters and government forces.

An incident last Tuesday outside a military court in Nasr City resulted in the arrests of two protesters. Journalists covering the demonstration were assaulted, according to witnesses.

The same day, military police fired shots into the air to disperse about 400 pro-Coptic demonstrators who had attempted to stage a sit-in in front of the state television building after marching through the streets of Cairo. – CNN.com

US protesters clash with guards at Washington museum

October 9, 2011 Comments off

Since early this year we have been sounding the warning of coming protests to the U.S. Next is rioting, and then martial law.

The rioting will soon invade the news as Americans vent their frustrations and feeling of being treated as cattle. Military intervention will occur and Martial Law will be declared as the citizens of the United States have lost their jobs and will then lose their liberties.

Do not take part in any rioting. Do not oppose the government of the United States. Await Yahweh’s army to liberate Christ’s followers.

The National Air and Space Museum in Washington was closed Saturday after anti-war demonstrators swarmed the building to protest a drone exhibit and security guards used pepper spray to repel them, sickening a number of protesters.

Smithsonian spokesman John Gibbons said a large group of demonstrators, estimated at 100 to 200 people, arrived at about 3 p.m. and tried to enter the National Mall museum. When a security guard stopped group members from entering, saying they could not bring in signs, he was apparently held by demonstrators, Gibbons said. A second guard who arrived used pepper spray on at least one person and the crowd dispersed, he added.

A number of groups have been demonstrating in the city in the past week. The group that arrived at the museum Saturday included individuals taking part in the October 2011 Stop the Machine demonstration in the city’s Freedom Plaza, which has an anti-war and anti-corporate greed message. The group also included protesters affiliated with Occupy D.C., a group modeled on the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City. Occupy D.C. has been holding marches and meetings in Washington’s McPherson Square.

David Swanson, 41, of Charlottesville, Va., said he was among dozens of people sickened by the pepper spray. He said he got sick even though he was outside the building when the spraying began.

“I began choking and vomiting and got a headache,” Swanson said.

Swanson, who says he has been part of the Freedom Plaza protest, says protesters were not looking to shut down the museum but to make a point about the massive military spending and the use of deadly drones. He said the security officers got aggressive after some protesters unfurled a protest banner inside.

He posted videos on his blog, warisacrime.org, that shows a security officer yelling “Get back” as pepper spray is apparently used. Several people fell to the ground outside in agony as others coughed, rubbed their eyes and fled the building.

Pete Piringer, a D.C. fire department spokesman, told The Associated Press on Saturday evening that medics treated or evaluated a dozen people at the scene but that no one was seriously hurt by the pepper spray.

Legba Carrefour, who is working with Occupy D.C., said a number of individuals joined the march to the museum following an afternoon meeting of the group.

Ann Wilcox, a lawyer working with Stop the Machine, said a 19-year-old woman from Madison, Wis., was arrested by police. She paid a fine and was released later Saturday. Wilcox said the protesters went to the Air and Space museum to demonstrate against a drone exhibit.

The museum has an exhibit, “Military Unmanned Aerial Vehicles,” that covers the history of unmanned aircraft and their current use as offensive weapons. Drones are often called the weapon of choice of the Obama administration, which quadrupled drone strikes against al-Qaida targets in Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas, up from less than 50 under the Bush administration to more than 220 in the past three years. - News-Sun

40 Signs That America Is Rotting From The Inside Out

October 9, 2011 Comments off

This will be such a crushing for not only the loss of life, but a huge hit to the U.S. economy as no money will be available to rebuild what is about to topple and be brought asunder. 

“The world is destined for a one-world currency – one world rule. What that foreshadows is this: When this system of Satan’s is done away with, you that survive will have those things under the Righteous Rule of Christ Jesus and our Mother Israel. Satan will have his one try at making things work in a distorted mirrored reflection of what is soon to become a reality outside of his influence, because try as he might, no matter how diligent or hard he might, he will fail, and mankind cannot survive even itself without our Mother’s beneficial guidance. Don’t cling to what is destined to pass away. Look to the Kingdom of Christ Jesus. If you do, know that your desires – worldly desires – must change to reflect a new inheritance. “1 John 2:17 And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does God’s will remains forever.” What is the “lust”? It is for wealth, immoral sex, and a list of other things that are also contrary to what benefits your true existence that could be in harmony with our Mother’s Coming Divine Plan of the Ages and on into eternity. Will you be there – because the hourglass has almost emptied – or will you be a casualty of Satan’s dying world?” — Michael, Archangel of Yahweh’s Holy Angelic Forces

The following are 40 signs that America is rotting from the inside out….

#1 A secret panel of government officials can now put American citizens on a “kill list”.  A recent Reuters article explained that no law established this secret panel and that there are no laws which govern it….

There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel, which is a subset of the White House’s National Security Council, several current and former officials said. Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate.

#2 It is on record that the federal government facilitated the sale of thousands upon thousands of very powerful guns to Mexican drug cartels.  The Mexican government was never told about this operation.  U.S. border agents have been shot with these guns, and these guns have been involved in dozens of murders already in Mexico.  Mexican drug cartels will continue to kill people with these guns for many years to come.  The Obama administration is working incredibly hard to cover up this scandal and the mainstream media is mostly ignoring the story.

#3 The other day, CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson shared with radio show host Laura Ingraham that Obama administration officials have yelled at her and cussed at her for aggressively investigating Operation Fast and Furious.  This must have created a lot of waves, because now CBS News has now put her on lockdown and has made her unavailable for interviews.

#4 A host of other recent examples show that if you are associated with the mainstream media in any way and you make a “politically incorrect” comment, you will be given the boot so fast that it will make your head swim.  For example, Hank Williams Jr. was recently booted off Monday Night Football simply because he compared Barack Obama to Hitler.

#5 At the current protests in New York City, police are beating people with clubs and shooting pepper spray in their faces.  As the economic crisis gets even worse and protests spread and become more intense in future years, will all of America soon look like this?

#6 The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world and the largest total prison population on the entire globe.

#7 The other day, a group of thieves stole a 50 foot long bridge in Pennsylvania.  Yes, you read that correctly.  They stole the entire bridge.

#8 Criminals seem willing to steal just about anything that is not bolted down these days.  For example, a group of thieves has stolen more than 1,000 pigs from farms in Minnesota and Iowa in recent months.

#9 Class warfare is certainly rising to a new level in this nation.  Recently, Roseanne Barr said that it would be a good idea for some bankers to “go to the reeducation camps”.

#10 Michael Moore is warning that the economic riots that we are starting to see around the country could potentially become violent in the future….

“The smart rich know they can only build the gate so high. And, and, sooner or later history proves that people when they’ve had enough aren’t going to take it anymore. And much better to deal with it nonviolently now, through the political system, than what could possibly happen in the future, which nobody wants to see”

#11 Have we become a socialist nation?  At this point, nearly half of all Americans live in a household that receives some form of government benefits.

Thousands Signing Petition for White House UFO Disclosure

October 9, 2011 2 comments

Disclosure will come. Yahweh will pull back the veil. And believe this: IT WILL BE AWE INSPIRING as humankind comes to grips with what is staring back at them.

The search for intelligent life beyond the stars has landed on President Obama’s desk.

More than 7,500 people have signed a petition asking the White House to ‘formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and immediately release into the public domain all files from all agencies and military services relevant to this phenomenon.’

It’s a move that UFO conspiracy theorists and true believers hope will lend some legitimacy to their cause.

If the petition gets 17,000 more signatures by Oct. 22, the White House has promised to respond.

An Obama Administration initiative called ‘We the People’ will enlist White House staffers to research and consider taking action on any issue that receives at least 25,000 online signatures.

The threshold was originally just 5,000 signatures, a number that the UFO petition reached in four days, but the White House increased that number Monday.

The petition was created by Stephen Bassett, who has been lobbying Washington on the UFO issue for 15 years.

He said the few thousand signatures he has collected so far will mean relatively little.

‘I knew we’d get at least 5,000. That’s easy. The question now is, can it go viral? If it goes viral and we start rolling in some really big numbers, who knows what’ll happen,’ he told the Herald-Tribune in Sarasota, Fla.

On his website, Bassett urges web masters and social media users to post links to the petition that say, ‘Make it go mega-viral.’

The petition says hundreds of officials have publicly confirmed human contact with alien life. It also claims half of Americans believe in UFOs and extraterrestrials.

‘The people have a right to know. The people can handle the truth,’ the petition says. – UFOS on Earth

Army Intelligence: East Coast Tsunami Imminent

October 9, 2011 Comments off

Could it happen? Time will tell. We’ve been warned to be prepared for the worst nature has to offer, not only from the sea and beneath this planet’s surface, but also from the unexpected that lies just ahead.

Jeremiah 15:8 “I made their widows more numerous than the sand of the seas. I brought against the mother of young men a destroyer at noon. I suddenly released on her agitation and terrors.”

Here is an intelligence report of an imminent East Coast tsunami. Please scroll down to this radio broadcast of September, 30th, Hour 3, and listen to the first few minutes; then please return to the next paragraph below, for the rest of the tsunami story:
http://www.gcnlive.com/programs/nutrimedical/archives.php

Geologists agree that if the Cumbre Vieja volcano erupts, its resulting landslide will surely generate a tsunami that will kill many millions of people along the East Coast of the Americas, from Canada, down through the United States, the Caribbean Islands, and down through Central and South America. BBC-TV Documentary Clip: Geologists warn of East Coast Tsunami:

John Moore’s source from U.S. Northern Command, Denver, Colorado tells him that there is very frenzied activity there, including that of food storage. Recall that Pres. Obama was there
just a few days ago. It appears that he may be preparing to go underground in response to N.A.S.A.’s observations of comets and asteroids in an approaching bee swarm.

New And Ongoing World Volcanic Activity – El Hierro, Anak Krakatau, Shiveluch, Mount Etna

October 9, 2011 1 comment

Isaiah 24:1 [ The Earth Judged ] Look, the LORD is stripping the earth bare and making it desolate. He will twist its surface and scatter its inhabitants:

This happens with tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes to name only a few of natures arsenal being used. Much more is on the horizon. Prepare for the coming rapture.

This week’s Weekly Volcanic Activity Report, a cooperative project between the Smithsonian’s Global Volcanism Program and the US Geological Survey’s Volcano Hazards Program, features information on the continuing volcanic activity on El Hierro in the Canary Islands (Spain).

Other active volcanoes featured this week include Krakatau in Indonesia, Puyehue-Cordón Caulle in Chile, Nabro in Eritrea, Shiveluch in Russia, Mount Etna in Italy, Santa Maria in Guatemala, and Rincón de la Vieja in Costa Rica.

This information page is broken into two categories, namely “New Activity/Unrest” and “Ongoing Activity”. Many of the updates link to additional coverage on the iWeather Online website.

New Activity/Unrest

HIERRO Canary Islands (Spain) 27.73°N, 18.03°W; summit elev. 1500 m

Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN) reported a drastic increase in the seismic activity at Hierro during 27 September-3 October, with more than 1,100 new seismic events detected, 83 of them felt by residents, with a maximum intensity value of IV using EMS-98 (European Macroseismic Scale). Most of the hypocenters were located offshore, SW of the island, at around 14 km depth. The maximum magnitude recorded during this week was 3.8. The total number of located events had reached more than 9,300 since the anomalous activity began on 16 July. The superficial deformation measured by the GPS network had reached 35 mm.

Geologic Summary. The triangular island of Hierro is the SW-most and least studied of the Canary Islands. The massive Hierro shield volcano is truncated by a large NW-facing escarpment formed as a result of gravitational collapse of El Golfo volcano about 130,000 years ago. The steep-sided 1500-m-high scarp towers above a low lava platform bordering 12-km-wide El Golfo Bay, and three other large submarine landslide deposits occur to the SW and SE. Three prominent rifts oriented NW, NE, and south at 120 degree angles form prominent topographic ridges. The subaerial portion of the volcano consists of flat-lying Quaternary basaltic and trachybasaltic lava flows and tuffs capped by numerous young cinder cones and lava flows. Holocene cones and flows are found both on the outer flanks and in the El Golfo depression. Hierro contains the greatest concentration of young vents in the Canary Islands. Uncertainty surrounds the report of an historical eruption in 1793.

Anak Krakatau (Child Of Krakatoa) pictured from space by NASA (Modis) on 02 August 2011

CVGHM reported that seismicity from Anak Krakatau in 2011, as late as 10 July, consisted of 20-30 volcanic-earthquake events per day and shallow events ranged from 120 to 135 events per day. Hundreds of events per day were detected during swarms. On 10 July, the seismic equipment was damaged by Krakatau’s activity but was again operational in mid-September. During 18-30 September seismic events reached 4-5 events per minute. Visual observations in 2011 until 13 September indicated occasional explosive eruptions that would eject material and produce ash plumes. During 14-30 September fumarolic activity from the crater and in the fumarolic fields was visible. The Alert Level was increased to 3 (on a scale of 1-4) on 30 September based on an increase in seismic activity and widespread fumarolic activity.

Geologic Summary. Renowned Krakatau volcano lies in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra. Collapse of the ancestral Krakatau edifice, perhaps in 416 AD, resulted in a 7-km-wide caldera. Remnants of this volcano formed Verlaten and Lang Islands; subsequently Rakata, Danan and Perbuwatan volcanoes were formed, coalescing to create the pre-1883 Krakatau Island. Caldera collapse during the catastrophic 1883 eruption destroyed Danan and Perbuwatan volcanoes, and left only a remnant of Rakata volcano. The post-collapse cone of Anak Krakatau (Child of Krakatau), constructed within the 1883 caldera at a point between the former cones of Danan and Perbuwatan, has been the site of frequent eruptions since 1927.

NABRO Eritrea; summit elev. 2218 m

Heat from vents in Nabro’s central crater is visible as a red glow in this NASA MODIS image acquired on September 28, 2011.

Heat from vents in Nabro’s central crater is visible as a red glow in this NASA MODIS image acquired on September 28, 2011.

According to NASA’s Earth Observatory, satellite images of Nabro acquired on 28 September showed heat from the vent in the central crater, and from an area 1.3 km S of the vent that indicated an active lava flow. A small and diffuse plume rose from the vent. A region of seemingly thicker black ash (that completely covered the sparse vegetation) was noted S of the crater and thinner layers of ash (with some areas of visible vegetation) flanked either side of the region.

Geologic Summary. The 2218-m-high Nabro stratovolcano is the highest volcano in the Danakil depression of northern Ethiopia and Eritrea. Located at the SE end of the Danakil Alps, Nabro lies in the Danakil horst. Nabro is the most prominent and NE-most of three volcanoes with large summit calderas aligned in a NE-SW direction SW of Dubbi volcano. These three volcanoes, along with Sork Ale volcano, collectively comprise the Bidu volcanic complex. The complex Nabro stratovolcano is truncated by nested calderas, 8 and 5 km in diameter. The larger caldera is widely breached to the SW. Nabro was constructed primarily of trachytic lava flows and pyroclastics. Post-caldera rhyolitic obsidian domes and basaltic lava flows were erupted inside the caldera and on its flanks. Some very recent lava flows were erupted from NNW-trending fissures transverse to the trend of the Nabro volcanic range.

RINCON DE LA VIEJA; Costa Rica, summit elev. 1916 m

Rincón de la Vieja volcano. Image cyph3r

On 30 September, OVSICORI-UNA reported phreatic eruptions from Rincón de la Vieja’s active crater during the previous six weeks. A well-documented event on 16 September ejected sediment that covered sections of the upper N walls. Some of the material was washed down the flanks and caused changes in water quality along the main creeks and major rivers up to 18 km away from the source. The death of several fish species was noted the next day and sediment deposits 10-15 cm deep were sampled 2 km N of the active crater. Scientists conducting fieldwork during 27-29 September observed that the hot lake was convecting and grayish in color due to the suspended sediments. Preliminary deformation and temperature measurements did not indicate any significant changes.

Geologic Summary. Rincón de la Vieja, the largest volcano in NW Costa Rica, is a remote volcanic complex in the Guanacaste Range. The volcano consists of an elongated, arcuate NW-SE-trending ridge that was constructed within the 15-km-wide early Pleistocene Guachipelín caldera, whose rim is exposed on the south side. Rincón de la Vieja, sometimes known as the “Colossus of Guanacaste,” has an estimated volume of 130 cu km and contains at least 9 major eruptive centers. Activity has migrated to the SE, where the youngest-looking craters are located. The twin cone of 1916-m-high Santa María volcano, the highest peak of the Rincón complex, is located at the eastern end of a smaller, 5-km-wide caldera and has a 500-m-wide crater. A plinian eruption producing the 0.25 cu km Río Blanca tephra about 3500 years ago was the last major magmatic eruption from the volcano. All subsequent eruptions, including numerous historical eruptions possibly dating back to the 16th century, have been from the prominent crater containing a 500-m-wide acid lake (known as the Active Crater) located ENE of Von Seebach crater.

SHIVELUCH Central Kamchatka (Russia); summit elev. 3283 m

KVERT reported that seismic activity at Shiveluch was moderate during 23-30 September, and indicated that possible ash plumes rose to an altitude of 4.6 km (15,100 ft) a.s.l. during 23 and 26-27 September. Ground-based observers noted that ash plumes rose to altitudes of 5.5 and 4.5 km (18,000 and 14,800 ft) a.s.l. on 23 and 27 September, respectively. Ash plumes observed in satellite imagery during 23-24 September drifted 45 km E. Seismicity increased on 3 October. Ash plumes rose to altitudes of 6-9 km (19,700-29,500 ft) a.s.l. during 3-5 October. Ground-based observers noted on 5 October a brightly incandescent lava dome, which was also detected as a large and bright thermal anomaly in satellite imagery. The Aviation Color Code was raised to Red.

Geologic Summary. The high, isolated massif of Shiveluch volcano (also spelled Sheveluch) rises above the lowlands NNE of the Kliuchevskaya volcano group and forms one of Kamchatka’s largest and most active volcanoes. The currently active Molodoy Shiveluch lava-dome complex was constructed during the Holocene within a large breached caldera formed by collapse of the massive late-Pleistocene Strary Shiveluch volcano. At least 60 large eruptions of Shiveluch have occurred during the Holocene, making it the most vigorous andesitic volcano of the Kuril-Kamchatka arc. Frequent collapses of lava-dome complexes, most recently in 1964, have produced large debris avalanches whose deposits cover much of the floor of the breached caldera. Intermittent explosive eruptions began in the 1990s from a new lava dome that began growing in 1980. The largest historical eruptions from Shiveluch occurred in 1854 and 1964.

VILLARRICA Central Chile; summit elev. 2847 m

Volcán Villarrica

Volcán Villarrica

According to Projecto Observación Visual Volcán Villarrica (POVI), an image from 17 September showed the inner SSW wall of the crater covered with snow and ice, and a thin layer of ash. A rapid rise in the level of the lava lake (in a pit about 40 m wide) on 19 September caused much of the snow and ice to melt, especially on the southern inner wall. Strombolian explosions from the crater were observed on 26 September, and tephra deposits on the E edge of the crater were noted. On 27 September incandescence from the lava lake were reflected in the cloud cover above.

Geologic Summary. Villarrica, one of Chile’s most active volcanoes, rises above the lake and town of the same name. It is the westernmost of three large stratovolcanoes that trend perpendicular to the Andean chain. A 6-km wide caldera formed during the late Pleistocene, more than 0.9 million years ago. A 2-km-wide postglacial caldera is located at the base of the presently active, dominantly basaltic-to-andesitic cone at the NW margin of the Pleistocene caldera. About 25 scoria cones dot Villarrica’s flanks. Plinian eruptions and pyroclastic flows have been produced during the Holocene from this dominantly basaltic volcano, but historical eruptions have consisted largely of mild-to-moderate explosive activity with occasional lava effusion. Lahars from the glacier-covered volcano have damaged towns on its flanks.

Ongoing Activity

AVO reported that during 27-28 September and 30 September-1 October thermal anomalies over Cleveland’s summit lava dome were detected in satellite images and suggested that the lava dome continued to slowly grow. Clouds obscured views on 29 September and during 2-3 October. Elevated surface temperatures were detected by satellite in partly cloudy images acquired during 3-4 October. The Volcano Alert Level remained at Watch and the Aviation Color Code remained at Orange. No current seismic information was available because Cleveland does not have a real-time seismic network.

Geologic Summary. Symmetrical Mount Cleveland stratovolcano is situated at the western end of the uninhabited dumbbell-shaped Chuginadak Island in the east-central Aleutians. The 1,730-m-high stratovolcano is the highest of the Islands of Four Mountains group and is one of the most active in the Aleutians. Numerous large lava flows descend its flanks. It is possible that some 18th to 19th century eruptions attributed to Carlisle (a volcano located across the Carlisle Pass Strait to the NW) should be ascribed to Cleveland. In 1944 Cleveland produced the only known fatality from an Aleutian eruption. Recent eruptions from Mt. Cleveland have been characterized by short-lived explosive ash emissions, at times accompanied by lava fountaining and lava flows down the flanks.

ETNA Sicily (Italy); summit elev. 3330 m

Mount Etna erupts for the fifteenth time this year on 28 September

Mount Etna erupts for the fifteenth time this year on 28 September

Sezione di Catania – Osservatorio Etneo reported that the fifteenth paroxysmal eruptive episode of 2011 took place at the New SE Crater of Etna during the evening of 28 September. That morning, noises originated from the New SE Crater. At 1600 volcanic tremor amplitude started to increase, and rhythmic ash emissions that rose from a vent located within the crater were occasionally accompanied by small Strombolian explosions. Starting at 1930 Strombolian activity progressively increased both in the intensity and frequency of explosions, and eventually became continuous. Bombs and scoria were ejected well beyond the crater rim. A small amount of lava flowed through the notch in the SE flank of the volcano at 2115 and was soon followed by explosions from a vent within the same area. The Strombolian activity waned for a few minutes then rapidly increased, forming a sustained lava fountain that rose as high as 800 m. At 2133 and 2134 two powerful explosions originating from a vent on the E rim of the crater created shock waves visible in the clouds above the crater and ejected large bombs hundreds of meters away. Lava fountains 100-150 m high commenced from a vent on the N base of the New SE Crater cone at 2136. The vent emitted a small lava flow soon after. At 2155 activity from all vents decreased, and between 2205 and 2210 all explosive activity ceased. Lava continued to flow until 2330.

The lava flow emitted from the SE flank of the cone reached the lower portion of the W slope of the Valle del Bove, somewhat SW of Monte Centenari. Ash plumes drifted SW and light ashfall occurred on the S flank of Etna, including in the towns of Nicolosi (14 km S) and Catania (27 km S).

Geologic Summary. Mount Etna, towering above Catania, Sicily’s second largest city, has one of the world’s longest documented records of historical volcanism, dating back to 1500 BC. Historical lava flows cover much of the surface of this massive basaltic stratovolcano, the highest and most voluminous in Italy. Two styles of eruptive activity typically occur at Etna. Persistent explosive eruptions, sometimes with minor lava emissions, take place from one or more of the three prominent summit craters, the Central Crater, NE Crater, and SE Crater. Flank eruptions, typically with higher effusion rates, occur less frequently and originate from fissures that open progressively downward from near the summit. A period of more intense intermittent explosive eruptions from Etna’s summit craters began in 1995. The active volcano is monitored by the Instituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Volcanologia (INGV) in Catania.

KVERT reported that seismic activity continued at a moderate level at Karymsky during 23-30 September and indicated that possible ash plumes rose to an altitude of 4.5 km (14,800 ft) a.s.l. Satellite imagery showed a thermal anomaly on the volcano on 24 September and ash plumes that drifted 80 km SE during 28-29 September. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.

Geologic Summary. Karymsky, the most active volcano of Kamchatka’s eastern volcanic zone, is a symmetrical stratovolcano constructed within a 5-km-wide caldera that formed about 7,600-7,700 radiocarbon years ago. Construction of the Karymsky stratovolcano began about 2,000 years later. The latest eruptive period began about 500 years ago, following a 2,300-year quiescence. Much of the cone is mantled by lava flows less than 200 years old. Historical eruptions have been Vulcanian or Vulcanian-Strombolian with moderate explosive activity and occasional lava flows from the summit crater. Most seismicity preceding Karymsky eruptions has originated beneath Akademia Nauk caldera, which is located immediately S of Karymsky volcano and erupted simultaneously with Karymsky in 1996.

KILAUEA Hawaii (USA); summit elev. 1222 m

MODIS image of Kilauea

MODIS image of Kilauea

During 28 September-4 October, HVO reported that the lava lake circulated and periodically rose and fell in the deep pit within Kilauea’s Halema’uma’u crater. Almost daily measurements indicated that the gas plume from the vent continued to deposit variable amounts of ash and occasionally fresh spatter nearby.

At the E rift zone, the fissure that formed on 21 September on the upper E flank of Pu’u ‘O’o continued to feed lava flows on 28 September that traveled along the edges of a low lava ridge. Most of the active lava spread out at higher elevations S and W of Pu’u Halulu (1.3 km NE of Pu’u ‘O’o). Lava activity resumed from two sources on the E edge of the Pu’u ‘O’o Crater floor and continued to spread W within the crater. During an overflight on 29 September, geologists observed that the fissure fed scattered active lava flows within 1.8 km on the SE flank of the cone. During 2-3 October lava from the E-crater floor source covered the crater floor. On 4 October active lava was confined to a small lake on the E side of the crater floor.

Geologic Summary. Kilauea, one of five coalescing volcanoes that comprise the island of Hawaii, is one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Eruptions at Kilauea originate primarily from the summit caldera or along one of the lengthy E and SW rift zones that extend from the caldera to the sea. About 90% of the surface of Kilauea is formed of lava flows less than about 1,100 years old; 70% of the volcano’s surface is younger than 600 years. A long-term eruption from the East rift zone that began in 1983 has produced lava flows covering more than 100 sq km, destroying nearly 200 houses and adding new coastline to the island.

KIZIMEN Eastern Kamchatka (Russia); summit elev. 2376 m

Ash plume and ash on snow from Kizimen, Kamchatka Peninsula, eastern Russia. 20 March 2011

Ash plume and ash on snow from Kizimen, Kamchatka Peninsula, eastern Russia. 20 March 2011

KVERT reported that during 23-30 September seismicity at Kizimen remained high with 1,200-1,600 earthquakes recorded daily. A large thermal anomaly on the volcano was detected daily in satellite images. A large lava flow on the NE flank continued to effuse and strong fumarolic activity was observed. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.

Geologic Summary. Kizimen is an isolated, conical stratovolcano that is morphologically similar to Mount St. Helens prior to its 1980 eruption. The summit of Kizimen consists of overlapping lava domes, and blocky lava flows descend the flanks of the volcano, which is the westernmost of a volcanic chain north of Kronotsky volcano. The 2,376-m-high Kizimen was formed during four eruptive cycles beginning about 12,000 years ago and lasting 2,000-3,500 years. The largest eruptions took place about 10,000 and 8300-8400 years ago, and three periods of longterm lava-dome growth have occurred. The latest eruptive cycle began about 3,000 years ago with a large explosion and was followed by lava-dome growth lasting intermittently about 1,000 years. An explosive eruption about 1,100 years ago produced a lateral blast and created a 1.0 x 0.7 km wide crater breached to the NE, inside which a small lava dome (the fourth at Kizimen) has grown. A single explosive eruption, during 1927-28, has been recorded in historical time.

Based on seismicity during 28 September-4 October, OVDAS-SERNAGEOMIN reported that the eruption from the Cordón Caulle rift zone, part of the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcanic complex, continued at a low level. Plumes visible in satellite images drifted 30-300 km NW, NE, E, and SE during 28 September-3 October. Plumes were also observed with an area camera to rise as high as 4 km during 30 September-4 October. The Alert Level remained at Red.

Geologic Summary. The Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcanic complex (PCCVC) is a large NW-SE-trending late-Pleistocene to Holocene basaltic-to-rhyolitic transverse volcanic chain SE of Lago Ranco. The 1799-m-high Pleistocene Cordillera Nevada caldera lies at the NW end, separated from Puyehue stratovolcano at the SE end by the Cordón Caulle fissure complex. The Pleistocene Mencheca volcano with Holocene flank cones lies NE of Puyehue. The basaltic-to-rhyolitic Puyehue volcano is the most geochemically diverse of the PCCVC. The flat-topped, 2236-m-high Puyehue volcano was constructed above a 5-km-wide caldera and is capped by a 2.4-km-wide summit caldera of Holocene age. Lava flows and domes of mostly rhyolitic composition are found on the eastern flank of Puyehue. Historical eruptions originally attributed to Puyehue, including major eruptions in 1921-22 and 1960, are now known to be from the Cordón Caulle rift zone. The Cordón Caulle geothermal area, occupying a 6 x 13 km wide volcano-tectonic depression, is the largest active geothermal area of the southern Andes volcanic zone.

SAKURA-JIMA Kyushu; summit elev. 1117 m

Based on information from JMA, the Tokyo VAAC reported that during 28 September-3 October explosions from Sakura-jima produced plumes that rose to altitudes of 1.8-3 km (6,000-10,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted in multiple directions. On 30 September and during 1-2 October pilots observed ash plumes that rose to altitudes of 1.5-3 km (5,000-10,000 ft) a.s.l. and mostly drifted NE, E, and ESE.

Geologic Summary. Sakura-jima, one of Japan’s most active volcanoes, is a post-caldera cone of the Aira caldera at the northern half of Kagoshima Bay. Eruption of the voluminous Ito pyroclastic flow was associated with the formation of the 17 x 23-km-wide Aira caldera about 22,000 years ago. The construction of Sakura-jima began about 13,000 years ago and built an island that was finally joined to the Osumi Peninsula during the major explosive and effusive eruption of 1914. Activity at the Kita-dake summit cone ended about 4,850 years ago, after which eruptions took place at Minami-dake. Frequent historical eruptions, recorded since the 8th century, have deposited ash on Kagoshima, one of Kyushu’s largest cities, located across Kagoshima Bay only 8 km from the summit. The largest historical eruption took place during 1471-76.

INSIVUMEH reported that on 29 September a lahar 28 m wide and 2 m deep traveled down Santa María’s Rio Nima II drainage, carrying 2-m-wide blocks and tree branches. During 29-30 September and 3-4 October explosions from the Santiaguito lava dome complex produced gray ash plumes that rose 1 km above the crater and drifted 15 km E and SW. Avalanches from the lava-flow fronts descended the flanks. During 3-4 October avalanches from the lava dome occasionally generated pyroclastic flows; lava flows were active on the SW and SE flanks.

Geologic Summary. Symmetrical, forest-covered Santa María volcano is one of a chain of large stratovolcanoes that rises dramatically above the Pacific coastal plain of Guatemala. The stratovolcano has a sharp-topped, conical profile that is cut on the SW flank by a large, 1-km-wide crater, which formed during a catastrophic eruption in 1902 and extends from just below the summit to the lower flank. The renowned Plinian eruption of 1902 followed a long repose period and devastated much of SW Guatemala. The large dacitic Santiaguito lava-dome complex has been growing at the base of the 1902 crater since 1922. Compound dome growth at Santiaguito has occurred episodically from four westward-younging vents, accompanied by almost continuous minor explosions and periodic lava extrusion, larger explosions, pyroclastic flows, and lahars.

Cloud formation looks like eagle soaring through sky

October 8, 2011 Comments off

Deuteronomy 28:49 The LORD will bring a nation from far away, from the ends of the earth, to swoop down on you like an eagle, a nation whose language you don’t understand,

Two massive ‘wings’ either side of a central ‘body’ give the impression the bird is swooping down over the coast of Maryport.

Mother-of-one Ally McGurk took the photo from her back window after her partner, Steve, noticed the uncanny formation.

Musical instrument repairer, Ally, said: “This is a cloud formation that appeared in the sky over the Solway Firth, which is just a mile from our house.

“We get loads of fabulous sunsets, especially in the early autumn, as the house faces north-west.

“My other half, Steve was standing at the back window and noticed the cloud.

“He watched it for a few minutes before coming out of his trance and realising it ought to be photographed.

“I raced off, grabbed my camera, opened the window wide, and fired off several shots.”

Ally added: “Steve said it had looked even more like a bird before he called me, but since I missed that bit, I’m just grateful he told me when he did.

“To me, it looks like an eagle, though I’ve had suggestions of other predatory birds, like hawks, from other people.” – Telegraph.uk

2011: A record breaking year for disaster

October 8, 2011 1 comment

Keep in mind that the spiritual war is fought on two fronts.

1. It is a spiritual battle that involves weather and other related phenomena to cause destruction and widespread desolation.

2. It is fought by using mankind as its own worst enemy.

Mankind has helped to bring much of the disasters now happening. Father is simply helping things progress much more quickly. The bowls of wrath are tribulation (i.e., a state of great trouble or suffering.) It is not intended to serve as a like scenario of the global flood by causing total destruction. That comes with the cup of wrath. The cup is poured out upon the earth just as the rains were at the great flood. At this time, people are experiencing great trouble and are suffering from the bowls of wrath that are given as a sign that the Great Tribulation has arrived. Read Revelation.

There things occur but the masses are not repentant. Father is revealing Her great power over nature and Her intervention into world governments affairs, but only those that are perceptive are aware of what’s happening. Each move on the chess board in the tribulation period is designed to fulfill the prophecies Father inspired to the writers of the Word long ago.

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - September’s T.S. Lee was just another reminder that Louisiana is one of the nation’s true ‘hot spots’ when it comes to tropical landfalls. In addition, Lee is just another example of a long list of weather events making 2011 an extraordinary year for extreme weather over the United States.

A recent report by the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) notes that by the end of September, the U.S. had already broken the record number of federal disaster declarations issued in a single year. The 86 federal disaster declarations through the first nine months of 2011 tops the previous annual record of 81, which was set just last year. In addition, the estimated price tag of nearly $25 billion through September places 2011 among the five or six costliest years on record in terms of insurance claims.

By comparison, for the 15 years from 1996 through 2010, there were an average of 58 such declarations per year, and only three years — 1996, 2008 and 2010 — had 75 or more declarations. Some of the increase since the mid 1990s can be attributed to a greater willingness on the fed’s part to issue declarations, but certainly Mother Nature has been extra busy in recent years.

Not only has 2011 been extraordinarily active in terms of the number of weather-related disasters, but the U.S. has suffered through a full array of extreme weather events this year.

A powerful winter storm over much of the central and eastern U.S. at the end of January began the run of extremes, followed by one of the deadliest and most active “tornado seasons” on record for the nation as a whole. Spring and summer Ohio and Mississippi river flooding added to the burden, while one of the most devastating droughts on record persists across the Southern Plains, extending into western and northern Louisiana. The Southern U.S. drought has not only been devastating for the region’s agriculture, but it also has spawned record and near-record wildfire frequencies.

(It is worth noting that the 2011 drought over the Southern U.S. can be traced back to its beginnings over northern Louisiana in the spring of 2010. Critical drought conditions over the Southern Plains did not develop until six months later.)

And more recently, August’s Hurricane Irene — with her track from the Carolinas into New England — wreaked havoc through the nation’s most densely populated corridor.

All of these extreme events come at a time when Congress is debating how to continue FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a program of critical importance to many flood-prone Louisiana residents.

Without doubt, Louisiana is too often a target of Mother Nature’s wrath, ranking sixth in the nation based on the numbers of federal declarations by state since 1953. Of these top six states, all five of the states with more declarations are larger in size and only Oklahoma has a smaller statewide population. And keep in mind that these account for only major federal declarations and do not include additional state disaster declarations that do not qualify for federal response.

It comes as no surprise that tropical weather is a big reason for the high number of federal declarations for the Bayou State, and historically, tropical systems have been responsible for most of the state’s costliest weather disasters. But many underestimate the role of non-tropical weather, accounting for roughly two-thirds of Louisiana’s federal declarations since the program began (in 1953). Indeed, winter/spring storms account for more than half of the total federal declarations issued for Sportsman’s Paradise. Even during the last 20 years, when Louisiana has suffered a marked increase in tropical weather impacts, Louisiana has been included in more federal declarations for non-tropical weather events than for tropical storms and hurricanes.

Annual tropical activity over the Atlantic Basin has been above the long-term average routinely since the mid 1990s, and a consensus outlook by hurricane experts indicates that this elevated activity is likely to continue for at least another decade or more. The impact of this recent upswing in storm counts for Louisiana has been obvious: more than a doubling of the average number of tropical impacts per decade for Louisiana during 2001-2010. At the same time, many from within climate-science circles believe that we should prepare for more frequent occurrences of all types of weather and climatic extremes in the coming decades, largely due to the theories behind (rapid) climate change.

No doubt, Louisiana not only needs to remain extra-ready for another decade of all-too-frequent tropical ‘hits,’ but should brace for the potential of increased severe weather year-round! – WAFB
