America Overdue For The Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12)

New Study: America Overdue For Major Earthquake … In States You Didn’t Suspect

Written by: Daniel Jennings Current Events

Most Americans have a reasonable chance of experiencing a destructive earthquake within the next 50 years, the US Geological Survey (USGS) has concluded.

The survey’s new National Seismic Hazard Map show that the risk of earthquakes in parts of the country — such as the Midwest, Oregon and the Rocky Mountains — is far higher than previously thought. All total, Americans in one-third of the country saw their risk for an earthquake increase.

“I worry that we will wake up one morning and see earthquake damage in our country that is as bad as that has occurred in some developing nations that have experienced large earthquakes,” Carl Hedde, a risk management expert at insurer Munich Reinsurance America, said of the map in The Wall Street Journal. “Beyond building collapse, a large amount of our infrastructure could be immediately damaged. Our roads, bridges and energy transmission systems can be severely impacted.”

Among the findings:

  • The earthquake danger in parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Illinois and South Carolina is as high as that in Los Angeles.
  • 42 of the 50 states have a reasonable chance of experiencing a damaging earthquake in the next 50 years.
  • Parts of 16 states have the highest risk of a quake: Alaska, Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Illinois, Kentucky and South Carolina

“We know the hazard has increased for small and moderate size earthquakes,” USGS scientist William Ellsworth told The Journal. “We don’t know as well how much the hazard has increased for large earthquakes. Our suspicion is it has but we are working on understanding this.”

Frightening Results From New Study

The USGS used new computer modeling technology and data collected from recent quakes such as the one that struck Washington, D.C. in 2011 to produce the new maps. The maps show that many Americans who thought they were safe from earthquakes are not.

Some of the survey’s other disturbing findings include:

    • The earthquake danger in Oklahoma, Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia, New York and parts of New England is higher than previously thought.
    • Some major metropolitan areas, including Memphis, Salt Lake City, Seattle, St. Louis and Charleston, have a higher risk of earthquakes than previously thought. One of the nation’s most dangerous faults, the New Madrid fault, runs right through St. Louis and Missouri. It is the nation’s second most active fault. On Dec. 16, 1811, the New Madrid Fault was the site of the most powerful series of earthquakes in American history.

“Obviously the building codes throughout the central U.S. do not generally take earthquake risk or the risk of a large earthquake into account,” USGS Seismologist Elizabeth Cochran told The Journal. Her take: Earthquake damage in the central US could be far greater than in places like California, because structures in some locations are not built to withstand quakes.

Others agree.

“Earthquakes are quite rare in many places but when they happen they cause very intense damage because people have not prepared,” Mark Petersen, the project chief for the USGS’s National Seismic Hazard Map, told The Journal.

This new map should be a wakeup call for Americans.

Antichrist’s Men Want More Time to Integrate

Iraqi militias want more time to integrate into army

Falih Alfayyah announces closure of PMUs recruitment centres but calls for two month extension to integration process

The head of Iraq’s controversial state-sponsored militias has announced the closure of registration centres for the units across the country and requested an extension to the Wednesday deadline for the integration of the armed groups into the state’s apparatus.

Iraq’s prime minister Adel Abdul Mahdi first issued the order for the Popular Mobilisation Units (PMUs) – known as Hashd al-Shaabi in Arabic – to integrate with the regular army on 1 July, following a number of attacks on US interests in the country that were blamed on the militias.

Falih Alfayyadh, chairman of the PMUs, told reporters on Tuesday that recruitment centres for the organisation were to be closed – but that the overall process would requirement a two-month extension.

“The Hashd al-Shaabi is fully committed to the decree that the Iraqi prime minister issued on 1 July 2019, which is focusing on integrating the Hashd al-Shaabi units into the Iraqi army,” he said.

“We ask the Iraqi prime minister for a two-month extension of the deadline in order to finalise the integration of all the Hashd al-Shaabi units into Iraqi army.”

The PMUs were officially created in 2014 after an appeal by Ali Sistani, the most senior Shia cleric in Iraq, for citizens to rally to the defence of the country against the Islamic State (IS) group, which had recently seized the city of Mosul.

While some of the units were created in 2014, a number of the largest were pre-existing groups – such as Kataib Hezbollah and the Badr Organisation – which were backed by Iran.

Although popular among a large number of Iraqis for fighting gainst IS, they have been accused of carrying out sectarian abuses against the country’s Sunni minority, while their power has often been seen as outstripping that of the regular armed forces.

Military or political choice

Part of Mahdi’s decree said that in the future the PMUs would have to make a choice between military and political work, whether “on an individual or organizational level”.

“All other names under which the factions of Hashd al-Shaabi operated during the heroic battles that eradicated the Daesh (IS) terrorist entity will be abandoned and replaced with military terms (division, brigade, regiment, et cetera),” said the decree, according to Rudaw.

Bases, checkpoints, economic offices and other entitites outside the “new working framework” would need to be closed.

The PMUs officially came under central government control, with central government funding, in 2016.

The move to constrain armed groups in Iraq came after a number of attacks in June targeting American interests in the country, including an attack on an oilfield in Basra, and an attack near the US embassy in Baghdad.


The US has, in recent months, moved to place greater sanctions on PMU members as tensions rise with Iran over incidents in the Gulf.

In mid-July, the US placed sanctions on the leaders of two non-Shia PMU groups – Rayan al-Kildani, head of the Christian Babylon Brigade, and Waad Qad, head of the Shabak 30th Brigade, an organisation comprised of members of the tiny Shabak Muslim minority.

Slamming the sanctions on Tueday, Alfayyadh said: “We refuse the US treasury sanctions, because they have no evidence and they clearly are humiliating Iraqi sovereignty.”

A number of leaders of the PMUs have welcomed Mahdi’s decree, including Qais al-Khazali – leader of the Iran-backed Asaib Ahl al-Haq – and the influential cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.

Renad Mansour, an analyst with the Chatham House think-tank, wrote in Foreign Policy that the conciliatory attitude from PMU leaders could be an indication that they believe the new move will allow them to “consolidate power from within the state”.

“Although the new policy mandates that the PMF integrate with the Iraqi state, it does not require their subordination,” he wrote.

“If anything, the risk may be that the state is subordinating itself to the paramilitary groups, not the other way around.”

Israel Strikes Iran First

Israel Preemptively Strikes Iranian Missiles in Iraq

Missile threat spurs Israel to open a new front against Iran.

By Warren Reinsch • August 1

On two different occasions last month, Israeli F-35 fighter jets struck Iranian missile depots north of Baghdad. This marks Israel’s first air strikes in Iraq since Operation Opera in 1981, when it bombed an Iraqi nuclear reactor. This escalation reveals the increased severity of the missile threat that Israel is facing. It also indicates that the United States may have given it the green light to open a new front against Iranian targets in Iraq.

The first attack, on July 19, occurred on a warehouse about 110 miles north of Baghdad. The Israeli Air Force targeted the Shiite militia base just after a shipment of Iranian-made short- and medium-range ballistic missiles was offloaded from a truck, which was supposedly transporting refrigerated food. A senior commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force was killed in the air strike.

The second strike, on July 28, was aimed at Camp Ashraf, another suspected Iranian rocket depot 25 miles northeast of Baghdad and 50 miles from the Iranian border. The proximity makes it a strategically important location for Iran to transport ballistic missiles. The base is in an area heavily influenced by Iran and is close enough to limit transport time reducing the chance of exposure.

The air strikes on these bases are a significant victory for Israel.

At the United Nations General Assembly in September 2018, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated:

Israel will do whatever it must to defend itself against Iran’s aggression. We will continue to act against you in Syria. We will act against you in Lebanon. We will act against you in Iraq. We will act against you whenever and wherever we must act to defend our state and defend our people.

Israel has conducted hundreds of strikes against Iranian targets in Syria, but as the threat against Israel expands, the Israeli military is expanding the scope of its attacks. However, Israel likely would not attack Iraq without American support, indicating U.S. President Donald Trump gave Netanyahu the green light to attack. Also, the F-35 is an advanced model supplied to Israel by the U.S.

Since September 2018, Iran has been deploying short- and medium-range ballistic missiles in Iraq, placing both Israel and Saudi Arabia within striking distance.

American intelligence agencies estimate that Iran has the largest ballistic missile inventory in the Middle East. Since June 2017, Iran has launched 19 short-range ballistic missiles into the territory of its neighboring Arab countries.

This February, Iran released its newest upgrade to the Fatah-110, a single-stage, solid-fuel, short-range model—and the most accurate missile in Iran’s arsenal. Fatah-110 missiles have been confirmed in Iran’s shipments to its Shiite proxies in Iraq, meaning Iran’s most accurate missile could already have Israel within range.

Israel was forced to act. But because the Shiite militias have begun integrating with the Iraqi Armed Forces, the air strikes could also be considered attacks on Iraq itself. This is probably why Israel has not commented on or even confirmed the attacks. The Washington Institute for Near East Policy stated on May 13 that “overt Israeli action would complicate U.S. relations and interests in Iraq, not to mention Israel’s own regional relations.” The strikes will likely further separate Iraq from Israel and the U.S., pushing it further toward Iran.

For more than two decades, the Trumpet has warned that Iran could gain control of Iraq. On March 14, Iran conducted its largest drone exercise, “Toward Jerusalem 1.” An old Iranian slogan “the path to Jerusalem runs through Karbala,” an Iraqi city, shows that Iran has always seen Iraq as a stepping-stone toward Israel. Iran is vehemently seeking the destruction of Israel, and Iraq is a crucial step toward its goal.

In the 1990s, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry identified radical Islam, led by Iran, as the biblically prophesied “king of the south.” (Request your free copy of The King of the South.)

The Prophet Daniel recorded the part that this Middle Eastern power bloc will play in end-time events: “And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over” (Daniel 11:40). “The king of the north” refers to a united, German-led Europe.

According to this prophecy, Iran’s push is what causes this European superpower to react. In Jerusalem in Prophecy, Mr. Flurry writes, “This push by the king of the south [Iran] will probably be a clash directly related to Jerusalem.” Zechariah 14:2 further reveals that half of Jerusalem will fall under Arab control.

Iran is a radical, aggressive nation that pushes with violence, endures retaliation, and then pushes with more violence. As Israel increases the scope of its attacks and begins striking Iranian targets in Iraq, watch for an even more violent response from Iran as it aggressively works to conquer Jerusalem.

Liz Cheney to Expose Her Father’s Legacy (Revelation 13)

Liz Cheney demands Warren provide list of U.S. cities to be nuked

Rep. Liz Cheney (R.-Wyoming.) wants to know which cities Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) would sacrifice to a nuclear attack.

In the early morning hours of July 31, Cheney, apparently responding to the first night of the Democratic debate, tweeted this loaded question at Warren: “Which American cities and how many American citizens are you willing to sacrifice with your policy of forcing the US to absorb a nuclear attack before we can strike back?”

Cheney was referring back to the segment of the previous evening’s presidential debate when moderator Jake Tapper asked whether, as president, the candidates would declare that the United States would never use nukes first.

Warren said that she would adopt that policy.

Cheney, it seems, took that to mean that a President Warren would vow to do nothing while America got nuked. Or that a country wouldn’t be deterred by America’s massive ability to retaliate against any strike.

For many, the assertion called to mind Cheney’s famous father, Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney the elder has been heavily criticized for encouraging the invasion of Iraq based on bogus weapons of mass destruction intel, and generally being a torture-condoning, warmongering, friend-shooting, Blackwater-connected political figure. (More recently, there was that time Christian Bale thanked Satan for inspiring him to play the former VP in Vice.)

Reactions to the tweet ranged from the obvious, “There is no winning a nuclear war,” to the vicious, “Wow damn didn’t realize that the desire to murder entire nations was a trait you could inherit from your dad,” and several logical souls who pointed out that Warren did not say that.

Someone even referenced Maslow’s hammer.

Harvard Business School professor Gautam Mukunda was among those appalled by Cheney the younger’s nuclear ambitions, “A little self-awareness might lead you to the conclusion that, having made your career entirely on the coat-tails of your war criminal father, maybe you’re not the best person to weigh in on the wisdom of preventive war? Your Dad’s Iraq catastrophe springs to mind, somehow,” he tweeted.

The Daily Dot has reached out to the Warren campaign and will update with their response.

It is worth noting that the United States has long had a policy of being willing to strike first in a nuclear war.

But on the same token, it’s pretty crazy to suggest that a president not being willing to launch a preemptive nuclear attack is the equivalent of them letting nuclear warheads rain down on our nation.

Exchange of fire on Gaza border kills Palestinian, wounds 3 Israel soldiers

Jerusalem (AFP) – A Palestinian seeking to avenge his brother’s death by Israeli fire entered Israel from Gaza Thursday, sparking a firefight in which the Israeli army said he was killed and three Israeli soldiers wounded.

An Israeli tank fired at a Hamas military post after the incident which began at around 2:00 am, Israel’s military said.

It said an army officer was moderately wounded and two soldiers were lightly injured by gunfire from the Palestinian, who breached the Israeli border fence from the Khan Yunis area of the southern Gaza Strip.

Israel’s military believes he was a member of the Islamist movement Hamas but had acted alone, said army spokesman Jonathan Conricus.

He was armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle and hand grenades, according to Conricus.

He threw at least one grenade and was killed by Israeli soldiers who were scrambled to the area in response, Conricus said.

“Our current assumption is — and this doesn’t look likely to change — is that he did not act, he was not sent, on an attack mission, but rather that he did this attempted attack on his own,” the spokesman told journalists.

His sister Alaa Abu Salah said her brother had sought to die fighting Israeli soldiers in revenge for the death of his brother Fadi in border clashes last year.

“He used to say, ‘I want to be martyred; to fight and confront the Jews,'” she told AFP.

“I want to bring a soldier’s head to my mother, to make my mother proud and retaliate for my brother Fadi’s death until I am martyred and at rest,” she quoted him as saying.

Hamas, which rules Gaza, did not comment but a security source in the territory said the gunman was a member of the movement.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent the wounded soldiers wishes for a speedy recovery.

There has been tension along the Gaza border since regular protests and clashes erupted there in March 2018.

At least 297 Palestinians have since been killed in Gaza or the border area by Israeli fire, the majority during demonstrations and clashes.

Seven Israelis have also been killed.

The protests have declined in intensity recently after a truce brokered by UN officials and Egypt. Under the truce, Israel agreed to take steps to ease aspects of its blockade on Gaza.

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since 2008.

The Shi’a Horn (Daniel 8:8)

The Iranian Project in the Middle East & Terrorism

Tzemach Yehudah Richter Jul 31, 2019, 9:03 PM

This is a political analysis which was published by Rami Dabbas -a Jordanian Writer and Political Analyst- in The Greater Middle East, a bipartisan, policy research organization.

The Political Analysis States :

Tehran has dozens of militias and armed groups deployed in Arab countries to destabilize the Middle East and stabilize the Iranian influence.

Iran has a major arm under the name of the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guard, which is responsible for foreign terrorist operations and has a key role in the establishment of foreign support to Iran, which is composed of local militias in several countries in the region.

These militias are based on sectarianism as a focal point for all their moves to mobilize minorities to implement the Iranian project in the region.

The following are the most prominent terrorist wings of Iran in the Middle East:

The Lebanese Hezbollah

Iran established Hezbollah’s militia in Lebanon in 1982, becoming its most prominent military agent in the Middle East. In addition to the militia’s control of the Lebanese decision making by force, the militia has been involved in terrorist acts in Lebanon and many countries.

The party presented themselves as terrorists immediately after its establishment through its involvement in the kidnapping of 96 foreigners in Lebanon in 1982, including 25 Americans known as the 10-year hostage crisis.

The terrorist organization carried out the bombing of the US embassy in Beirut, April 1983, killing 63 people at the embassy. In the same year, the party launched coordinated attacks on the US and French embassies in Kuwait along with an oil refinery and a residential district, killing five people.

Hezbollah is directly linked to the 1996 bombing of Saudi Arabia by establishing and supporting the so-called Hizballah-Hejaz, which blew up residential towers, killing 120 people, including 19 Americans.

In 1988, Hezbollah guerrillas hijacked a civilian plane bound for Kuwait to demand the release of those accused of bombing infrastructure in Kuwait.

Hezbollah also participated in the training of militias in other countries. It also played a major role in the Syrian war by deploying its fighters to the Syrian regime, while providing direct support to the Iranian Houthi militias in Yemen.

The Arab League, the United States, France, the Gulf Cooperation Council, Canada, Japan, and the Netherlands have designated Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

The European Union, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and Australia banned the military wing of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

The Hejaz Party

The Hizballah-Hejaz terrorist group was established in Saudi Arabia through the Lebanese Hezbollah, and it expanded from 1987 to 1996.

One of the organization’s most prominent operations was the 1996 bombing of the US Mission compound in Khobar, killing 120 people, including 19 Americans.

The Iraqi Hezbollah

The Iraqi Hezbollah militia was formed after the fall of the Iraqi regime in 2003. Several Iranian militias, including the Brigades of the Abu Fadl al-Abbas Brigade, the Karbala Brigades, the Carpet Corps and the Zaid Bin Ali Brigades, all united under the banner of the Iraqi Hizballah in 2006.

The armed militia was involved in several crimes on Iraqi soil, where it was involved in a sectarian war against other Iraqi components, in order to establish Iranian influence.

League of the Righteous

The militia was founded in 2006 with direct Iranian support and has split from the Mehdi Army militia of religious leader Moqtada al-Sadr. The group has become a major component of the popular mobilization forces that were formed in 2014 on the pretext of confronting a militant organization but committed many sectarian crimes against Iraqis. The militia is also involved with other Iranian operations in the Syrian war.

Popular mobilization forces in Iraq

Founded in 2014 from the Hezbollah Brigades, Asaib Ahl al-Haq, Badr Organization, and Martyr al-Sadr’s forces. The crowd then expanded from Shiite volunteers.

The crowd set up a declared goal: to protect Baghdad and the holy shrines from Isis terrorist organization that controlled Mosul, Ramadi, Anbar, and Falluja. However, these forces were involved in massacres against civilians in Sunni-majority cities and quickly emerged with its sectarian link.

Iranian militias in Syria

Iran has more than 50 armed militias in Syria under many denominations with a sectarian dimension. In addition to the main arm Hezbollah, the Syrian war was joined by battalions under the banner of the popular Iraqi popular mobilization forces, most notably the Liwa Abu al-Fadl al-Abbas Brigade, the Imam Ali Brigades, the Hezbollah Brigades, the Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada Brigades and Harakat al-Abdal, The Fatimid’s “from Afghanistan and the” Zinbion “from Pakistan.

Iranian Houthi militia

The militia was established under the name Ansar Allah Group in 1992 and began armed military activity since 2004 to enter into six wars against the Yemeni army until 2010.

Iran has long used the Houthis as a powerful tool to carry out its project in Yemen, supplying them with weapons so that they could exploit the fragile security situation in 2014 and carry out a coup against the legitimately elected authority to plunge the country into a cycle of violence.

At the request of the Yemeni government, the forces of the Saudi Arabia-led Coalition for Legitimacy Support in April 2015 began to defeat the insurgency after political efforts were exhausted.

Saraya al-Mukhtar – Bahrain

Saraya al-Mukhtar was founded in Bahrain in late 2011, relying on guerrilla tactics, blasts, and bombings against civilian targets and security forces.

Saraya Al-Ashtar – Bahrain

The organization was established in March 2012 and was supported by Iran and Iraqi Shiite groups associated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

The organization is led by Ahmed Yousef Sarhan, known as Abu Montazer, and Jassim Ahmed Abdullah, also known as Zulfiqar, both Bahraini who escaped, believed to be in Iran.

Many organizations, including the Popular Resistance Brigades, have emerged. These organizations have adopted all terrorist operations carried out in Bahrain.”

The German Horn Will Eventually be Involved in the Alliance (Daniel 7)

The Latest: Germany won’t take part in US-led Gulf mission

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The Latest on tensions in the Persian Gulf (all times local):

8:20 p.m.

Germany’s foreign minister is ruling out his country’s participation in a proposed U.S.-led mission to protect maritime traffic in the Persian Gulf area.

The U.S. recently asked allies to contribute to a mission to secure maritime traffic through the Strait of Hormuz, a critical oil shipping corridor, in the wake of increased Iranian aggression in the area.

Germany had already expressed skepticism, saying that priority must be given to de-escalation of tensions and diplomatic efforts.

But the dpa news agency reported on Wednesday that Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has now ruled out participation altogether.

Dpa quoted him as telling reporters in Warsaw that “the German government will not participate in the maritime mission proposed and planned by the USA.”


6 p.m.

Germany appears cool on a U.S. request for Berlin to take part in a mission to secure maritime traffic in the Straits of Hormuz amid tensions with Iran, saying it is continuing talks with European partners on whether to play a role.

Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer says Germany and its partners have, from the start, “had a different view from the American side, and that will certainly have to be taken into account in the decision.”

She told reporters in Brussels Wednesday that Germany, Britain and France aim to uphold the agreement aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear ambitions despite the weight of severe U.S. economic sanctions.

Kramp-Karrenbauer says “we are committed to this aim,” and in light of that the three European powers are consulting on “how we should now evaluate the request from the Americans” to boost maritime security.

The U.S. wants some NATO allies to help protect key commercial waterways as tensions soar with Iran, which recently seized a British-flagged tanker.


2:45 p.m.

Officials from the United Arab Emirates and Iran have met to discuss maritime security for the first time in six years amid a spike in tensions in the Persian Gulf.

An Emirati official, who was not authorized to discuss the talks and so spoke on condition of anonymity, said the meetings focused on issues related to border security and navigation in shared waters, describing the talks as “nothing new” and unrelated to current tensions.

The state-run IRAN daily reported that a seven-member delegation from Abu Dhabi met with Iranian border and coastguard commanders in Tehran on Tuesday in the first such meeting since 2013.

The UAE is a close ally of Saudi Arabia. The two Arab Gulf countries view Iran as a regional menace and are at war with Iran-aligned rebels in Yemen.

The UAE has long lobbied for a more hawkish U.S. policy toward Iran, but as tensions have risen in recent months, fears of a wider conflict have prompted the UAE to call for de-escalation.

1:15 p.m.

Iran has dismissed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s offer to visit and address the Iranian people as a “hypocritical gesture.”

Addressing Pompeo in remarks to reporters on Wednesday, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said “You don’t need to come to Iran.” He suggested Pompeo instead grant visas for Iranian reporters to travel to the U.S. and interview him, accusing him of having rejected their requests.

On Monday, Pompeo tweeted: “We aren’t afraid of (Zarif) coming to America where he enjoys the right to speak freely. Are the facts of the (Khamenei) regime so bad he cannot let me do the same thing in Tehran?” he said, referring to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. “What if his people heard the truth, unfiltered, unabridged?”

U.S.-Iranian tensions have soared in recent months.
