The History of Earth­quakes In New York Before the Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12)

  The History of Earth­quakes In New YorkBy Meteorologist Michael Gouldrick New York State PUBLISHED 6:30 AM ET Sep. 09, 2020 PUBLISHED 6:30 AM EDT Sep. 09, 2020New York State has a long history of earthquakes. Since the early to mid 1700s there have been over 550 recorded earthquakes that have been centered within the state’s boundary. New York has also been shaken by strong earthquakes that occurred in southeast Canada and the Mid-Atlantic states.

Courtesy of Northeast States Emergency ConsortiumThe largest earthquake that occurred within New York’s borders happened on September 5th, 1944. It was a magnitude 5.9 and did major damage in the town of Massena.A school gymnasium suffered major damage, some 90% of chimneys toppled over and house foundations were cracked. Windows broke and plumbing was damaged. This earthquake was felt from Maine to Michigan to Maryland.Another strong quake occurred near Attica on August 12th, 1929. Chimneys took the biggest hit, foundations were also cracked and store shelves toppled their goods.In more recent memory some of the strongest quakes occurred On April 20th, 2002 when a 5.0 rattled the state and was centered on Au Sable Forks area near Plattsburg, NY.Strong earthquakes outside of New York’s boundary have also shaken the state. On February 5th, 1663 near Charlevoix, Quebec, an estimated magnitude of 7.5 occurred. A 6.2 tremor was reported in Western Quebec on November 1st in 1935. A 6.2 earthquake occurred in the same area on March 1st 1925. Many in the state also reported shaking on August 23rd, 2011 from a 5.9 earthquake near Mineral, Virginia.

Earthquakes in the northeast U.S. and southeast Canada are not as intense as those found in other parts of the world but can be felt over a much larger area. The reason for this is the makeup of the ground. In our part of the world, the ground is like a jigsaw puzzle that has been put together. If one piece shakes, the whole puzzle shakes.In the Western U.S., the ground is more like a puzzle that hasn’t been fully put together yet. One piece can shake violently, but only the the pieces next to it are affected while the rest of the puzzle doesn’t move.In Rochester, New York, the most recent earthquake was reported on March 29th, 2020. It was a 2.6 magnitude shake centered under Lake Ontario. While most did not feel it, there were 54 reports of the ground shaking.So next time you are wondering why the dishes rattled, or you thought you felt the ground move, it certainly could have been an earthquake in New York.Here is a website from the USGS (United Sates Geologic Society) of current earthquakes greater than 2.5 during the past day around the world. As you can see, the Earth is a geologically active planet!Another great website of earthquakes that have occurred locally can be found here.To learn more about the science behind earthquakes, check out this website from the USGS.

Hypersonics in South Asia before the First Nuclear War: Revelation 8

Hypersonics in South Asia

Emergence of hypersonic becoming hostile but the world leaders intentionally and wishfully ignoring threats

Rabia Javed7:12 PM | April 19, 2021

“History shows that stopping an arms race is much harder than igniting one,” R. Jeffrey Smith.

From the last few years, leading global nuclear powers have been involved in a race to develop hypersonic weapons. The United States, Russia, and China have up till now developed hypersonic weapons systems comprised mainly of hypersonic cruise missiles (HCMs) and hypersonic glide vehicles (HGVs). In South Asia, a hypersonic technology development vehicle (HSTDV) development is back in full swing where India on 7th September 2020 successfully tested a weaponizable HSTDV in the presence of Defense Minister Rajnath Singh. 

The swiftness of these weapons threatens global strategic balance at large and regional security in particular. India’s most recent flight test of its hypersonic vehicle, powered by a scramjet engine, will serve as the building block for next-generation hypersonic cruise missiles. The HSTDV indicates that New Delhi is committed to developing hypersonic technologies. This has been done with the aim of enhancing its offensive counterforce military capabilities and achieving the status of great power that is evident from the statements given by Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. Due to these moves by India, hypersonic arms race is underway, challenging geopolitical order and undermining existing strategic equilibrium. It will also give rise to a new class of threat, able to penetrate most missile defenses and to further compress the timelines for a response by a nation under attack.

Regardless, the flight test is not the first step towards the realization of an indigenous hypersonic vehicle. Similar moves were made by India in 2019, where, it conducted the maiden launch of a new HSTDV, which has futuristic application for next generation missiles and aerial systems. Unlike other missile systems, hypersonic missiles travels at speeds of Mach 5 and higher – five times faster than the speed of sound (3836 mph), which is around 1 mile per second with low altitude and maneuverability of a cruise missile. In comparison, there still exist no credible detectors and interceptors to successfully shoot down hypersonic missiles. Hence, no such systems exist at present that can be used to defend against this technology.

The speed and agility of Hypersonic weapons threaten strategic stability. Interestingly, if India acquires such missile system, it would altogether bring in new security challenges to the region. It would also likely help New Delhi to opt for a pre-emptive strike against Pakistan’s strategic forces. In collaboration with Russia, India is reportedly developing Hypersonic Cruise Missile BrahMos-II which will have Mach 7 hypersonic speed.

Indian efforts to get its hypersonic weapons operationalized, will make South Asian region more vulnerable and prone to a nuclear conflict. With Indian plans of making hypersonic version of BrahMos, which will bring altogether new challenges and broader regional security concerns, it is evident that such Indian capability will help exploit the situation at LOC which is already a complex security situation in the region. For instance, Indian hypersonic capability will leave no room for credible countermeasures in case of Indian first strike which will likely be a matter of a minute or two to reach the desired target. Such scenario will ultimately lead to failure of deterrence stability. So it is a fact that the Indian push for developing hypersonic weapon system has the potential to create instability and uncertainty in a nuclear environment.

Besides, added threat is the ambiguity that accompanies hypersonic weapons systems which, further negatively affects nuclear stability in South Asia. The control on the proliferation of such system is another issue that would have larger impact keeping in mind that no international treaty or measure to limit such proliferation exist at present. India is a case in point, where, it has rejected many bilateral arms control proposals offered by Pakistan. There is no appetite in India for arms control talks with Pakistan. While India is actively consolidating its air and missile defenses, it may eventually force Pakistan to think of obtaining/developing its own hypersonic weapons. 

New Delhi’s rush to introduce newer varities of cruise and ballistic missiles in the region is questionable. If inducted in regular war-fighting tech, these weapons will completely change the balance between offence and defence in the region. These circumstances of maneuverability and speed of the weapons could risk a conventional attack being mistaken for a nuclear attack, causing the incident to escalate across the nuclear threshold. 

Lastly, hypersonic weapons have the potential to exacerbate dangers in South Asia. Emergence of hypersonic is becoming hostile but the world leaders intentionally and wishfully are ignoring the threats and the potential perils associated in developing such weapons. Indian continuous motivation for such technological developments will bring new security challenges capable of deteriorating an already fragile security environment.

Mossad Missed the Mark: Revelation 11

Did the Mossad ‘shoot’ and miss with Natanz sabotage? – analysis

After initial denials, Iran has admitted that it lost the use of thousands of centrifuges plus extensive aspects of its electricity from the April 11 incident.

Did Israel’s mythic intelligence agency, the Mossad, take its best shot at slowing Iran’s nuclear program last week and miss?

Although Israel’s supporters were complimenting the spy agency all week on the incident at Natanz on April 11 (about which sources told The Jerusalem Post and others that it was involved), which supposedly set back Tehran’s nuclear program by nine months, this may be a case of winning the battle but losing the war.

Whoever carried out the April 11 sabotage of the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program did so to achieve two goals:

One was to set back Iran’s clock for how quickly it could potentially break out to a nuclear program. Allegedly, Natanz’s centrifuges for enriching uranium were to be off-line or unusable for nine months.

The second broader goal was to eliminate Tehran’s bargaining leverage at the negotiating table with the US and world powers so that Washington would feel less pressure to rush a return to the 2015 nuclear deal and only return if it received significant concessions.

After initial denials, Iran has admitted it lost the use of thousands of centrifuges plus extensive aspects of its electricity from the April 11 incident.

But within days, the Islamic Republic was claiming it would make a major jump in uranium enrichment to the 60% level.

This act, if it happened, could bring Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei much closer to a nuclear weapon than he had been prior to the Natanz incident.

People familiar with the matter belittled the idea that Khamenei retained such a capability after the success of the Natanz sabotage. It was empty Iranian propaganda to save face and try to maintain a false sense of pressure on the US in negotiations, they told the Post.

Former IDF intelligence chief Aharon Ze’evi-Farkash and Institute for Science and International Security president David Albright expressed a combination of doubt and lack of clarity about how the Islamic Republic could achieve such a new high level of enrichment after being hit so hard at Natanz. But both said they were working only from public estimates.

When questioned by the Post, even the International Atomic Energy Agency initially seemed silent about any new Iranian violation, which could have supported the idea that it was all a bluff.

But over the weekend, the IAEA finally confirmed that Iran had in fact achieved a 60% enrichment level using new, advanced centrifuges that were apparently not among those knocked out on April 11.

It is still unknown why these centrifuges and their electrical power source survived undamaged.

Was it because they were off when the incident hit, because they were separated from the rest by distinct electrical systems or geography, or because they were being powered by alleged reserve electricity that Iran maintained in case of such an incident (following a similar method of attack on the Fordow nuclear facility’s electrical power in 2012)?

The amount of enriched uranium is still tiny: only a couple of hundred grams per day, compared with the kilograms that uranium enrichment is typically measured in.

But even this slow-moving process maintains pressure on the US and shortens the clock for the Islamic Republic to break out to a nuclear bomb.

Rather, than giving the US more time and leverage, the net total impact of the April 11 incident and the jump to 60% enrichment seems to have given the Biden administration a deeper sense of purpose and an understanding that speed is of the utmost importance to complete the negotiations before any new sabotage might further upset the applecart.

The US, Iran and China all made positive comments about progress in the negotiations over the weekend despite the April 11 incident and the 60%-enrichment announcement.

Alternatively, this was the endgame that Washington and Tehran always intended, and the two sides did not change their approach after last week’s events.

But even if that is true, it means that the April 11 incident plus Khamenei’s reaction may not have advanced Israel’s broader policy goals of driving the US toward taking longer to strike a tougher deal.

If so, it is possible that a remarkable intelligence operation may have succeeded tactically but failed at a strategic level.

Iran’s elections are set for June 18, and there is high pressure for at least an interim deal toward returning to the nuclear deal before Election Day.

The coming month or so will likely tell whether the sabotage of Natanz was worth it.

IAEA confirms Iran is a Nuclear Horn

IAEA confirms Iran is enriching uranium to 60 percent

Work reportedly taking place at Natanz nuclear facility • Israeli media reports rising tension between Jerusalem and Washington against backdrop of nuclear talks in Vienna.

(April 18, 2021 / JNS)

The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed on Saturday that Iran had begun the process of enriching uranium to a purity level of 60 percent, the closest level yet to the 90 percent required to make a nuclear bomb.

The work is taking place at Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment facility, Reuters reported on Saturday. Thousands of uranium enrichment centrifuges were damaged or destroyed in a  blast that tore through the facility on April 11, according to an Iranian official. Tehran has accused Israel of being behind the incident, which it has called “nuclear terrorism” and sworn revenge.

Until now, Iran has only enriched uranium to 20 percent—itself a violation of the 2015 nuclear deal, which restricted the Islamic Republic to the 3.67 percent level.

Meanwhile, Iranian state television said on Saturday that the country’s intelligence agencies had identified one Reza Karimi as a suspect in the Natanz blast. Karimi had fled Iran shortly before the explosion, according to a BBC report.

In recent days, Hebrew media reports have indicated that Washington and Jerusalem are experiencing increased diplomatic tensions over recent events concerning Iran. A Channel 12 news report on Friday said that the Biden administration had passed multiple messages to Israel calling for a cessation of “chatter and boastfulness” regarding alleged Israeli actions against Iran, and calling alleged Israeli remarks on the matter dangerous, embarrassing and a threat to U.S.-led nuclear talks with Iran.

Israel Hayom reported on Sunday that Jerusalem is “deeply disappointed” over the “total American capitulation” in nuclear talks with Iran in Vienna.

The report said that six world powers and Iran are close to signing an agreement that would return them to the original deal, which former President Donald Trump quit in 2018. According to the report, Iran will not be required to destroy the new, advanced centrifuges it has built, but rather just to disconnect them from enrichment machinery.

Israel arrests 144 Palestinians outside the Temple Walls: Revelation 11

Israel arrests 144 Palestinians in April

RAMALLAH, Palestine

Israeli forces detained 144 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank in the first half of April, according to a Palestinian research center on Sunday.

Six women and five children, including three from Jerusalem, were among those rounded up, the Ramallah-based Jerusalem Center for Studies said in a report.

Israeli forces also arrested four candidates in the upcoming legislative elections, including two from Palestinian group Hamas, the report said.

According to the Palestinian center, some of the detainees were released after a few days of arrest, without providing an exact number.

Hamas activists and candidates for legislative elections in the West Bank were “principally targeted”, Imad Abu Awwad, the head of the research center, told Anadolu Agency.

“This is a clear indication of the occupation’s attempt to interfere in the elections by disrupting Hamas electoral campaigns,” he said.

Abu Awwad continued: “Israel is practicing a form of intimidation against anyone trying to join the electoral process, and dissuading them from doing so.”

In a statement on Saturday marking the Prisoner’s Day, Hamas called on the international community to put pressure on Israel to ensure that the elections are held in the Palestinian territories.

“We call on the international community and the countries sponsoring the electoral process to respond to the occupation over its aggression,” Hamas said, in reference to the recent arrests by Israeli authorities of candidates from its list.

In January, a member of Hamas told Anadolu Agency that the movement has received guarantees from five countries namely: Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Qatar, and Russia, that elections will take place as scheduled.

Palestinians are scheduled to vote in legislative elections on May 22, presidential polls on July 31, and National Council polls on Aug. 31.

An estimated 4,500 Palestinians are believed to be held in Israeli prisons, including 41 women, 140 minors, and 440 administrative detainees, according to data compiled by organizations on the rights of prisoners.

Hamas: Struggle outside the Temple Walls will continue : Revelation 11

Hamas: Struggle will continue until full liberation of al-Aqsa from Zionist usurpers

Sunday, 18 April 2021 3:59 PM  [ Last Update: Sunday, 18 April 2021 4:05 PM ]

The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, says the anti-Israel struggle will continue until the full liberation of al-Aqsa Mosque from the grips of the “Zionist enemy.”

In a statement on Sunday, Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, praised the “legendary steadfastness” of his fellow Palestinians in the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds, saying the true inhabitants of the city are “facing Israel’s extreme racist plans and violations.”

He added that the regime’s repression machine is constantly working against Palestinians in the occupied city, targeting their “existence, rights, identity and sanctities.”

“While we hail such valiant resistance and great steadfastness by all people of [Jerusalem] al Quds, be at the gates of al-Aqsa or on the streets of [Jerusalem] al Quds, and their confrontation with the measures and violations of the Zionist enemy, we also affirm that we all defend our fellow Palestinians in al-Quds and their right to defend the al-Aqsa Mosque, the territory and the sanctities there,” Barhoum stressed.

The Hamas spokesman further called on all Palestinians to foil any attack launched by Zionists against inhabitants of Jerusalem al-Quds and their rights by being present in a constant battle against the enemy “until their full rights, particularly their right of political participation and voting, secured.”

Barhoum also urged all Palestinians, particularly those who live in the occupied West Bank, to travel to the al-Aqsa Mosque to defend and protect the holy sites there, and also to support Palestinians in the occupied city.

“The battle for al-Aqsa continues, and will not end until its liberation from the usurping Zionists,” the Hamas official stressed.

The al-Aqsa Mosque compound sits just above the Western Wall plaza and houses both the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosques.

Israel lays claim to the entire Jerusalem al-Quds, but the international community views the city’s eastern sector as occupied territory and Palestinians consider it the capital of their future state.

Palestinians want the West Bank as part of a future independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.

Palestinian sources said 70,000 worshipers performed Friday prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, in occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds on the first Friday of the holy Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. Israeli troops barred many more from entering al-Quds.

The Russian nuclear horns new Bomber: Daniel 7

How Russia’s new strategic bomber PAK DA will look like

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation approved early April the final appearance of the stealth bomber, known as the Advanced Long-range Aviation Complex (PAK DA in Russian codification). It is being developed by Tupolev with the creation priority given to reducing the visibility of the aircraft and the usage of long-range weapons.

At the moment the bureau works on creating the first full-size prototypes of the bomber.

The new bomber will be built according to the “flying wing” aerodynamic scheme. (without the tail unit and a fuselage that is separated from the wings) and will be able to fly at subsonic speeds of up to 1,190 km/h; 740 mph). This is significantly less than the speed of the Tu-160 strategic bomber that the new PAK DA is supposed to replace in Russia’s air force.

The machine will use only intra-fuselage weapons in order to decrease its visibility on radars. These weapon systems include advanced long-range cruise missiles and hypersonic missiles. 

‘The onboard equipment of the aircraft is automated as much as possible. Engineers now experiment on using it in unmanned mode. It is also assumed that the bomber will be able to control groups of unmanned aerial vehicles and will be able to use the entire range of air – to-air missiles’ told Russia Beyond Vadim Kozulin, a professor at the Academy of Military Science.

What’s also important is that the priority in the PAK DA concept is given to «stealth» technologies with the appropriate tactics of use including long-range weapons 

‘Today, Russia’s air force has received the powerful X-555 and X-101 long-range missiles that can fly 5,000 km (3,106 miles), which is why there is no more need for long-distance bombers. Now the strategic bomber can carry out its mission basically without leaving Russian borders and remaining under the protection of air defense systems’ mentioned Kozulin.

As previously reported by Russian media, special models and individual full-size elements of the bomber were already created and passed a series of bench tests to assess radar visibility.

Russian Defense Ministry

‘In particular, it was confirmed that with the use of certain tactics, the PAK DA will be able to overcome the advanced air defense lines of NATO countries unnoticed’ added Kozulin.

The expert also states that each PAK DA will carry up to 40 tons of ammo, as all other modern strategic bombers. This weaponry consist of all types of modern nuclear and conventional bombs: armor piercing, penetration, cluster and others

Each plane’s minimum service life time is supposed to be no less than 12 years, with prolongation to 21 years after service maintenance procedures.

The new bomber is being developed by Tupolev. It is expected to be put into service until 2027. It is expected that the aircraft will replace the Tu-95MS missile carriers in the Aerospace Forces.
