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.

The Russian Nuclear Horn Continues to Provoke the West: Daniel 7

MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. Fragments of the non-operational Tselina-D satellite that appeared after its destruction during Russian trials may pose a threat to EU’s operations in space, European Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton said Tuesday. 

“This anti-satellite weapon test has caused the generation of a significant amount of debris of a size that could endanger the European Union’s space activities as well as those of our Member States,” he tweeted.

“As Commissioner in charge of EU Space policy and in particular of Galileo & Copernicus, I join the strongest condemnations expressed against the test conducted by Russia […], which led to the destruction of a satellite in low orbit,” Breton said, adding that the EU will work on a new space and defense strategy.

On Tuesday, Russian Ministry of Defense reported a trial that resulted in a successful destruction of a non-operational Russian spacecraft. The Ministry underscored that it is carrying out planned activities on reinforcement of the defense potential and reminded that the main goal of the new US space strategy is “establishment of a complex military supremacy” in this field.

The Ministry underscored that the satellite fragments pose no threat to the ISS or satellites, adding that the debris have been included in the Russian national space monitoring system and that they will be monitored until they cease to exist.

The Iranian Horn Continues Her Nuclear Quest: Daniel 8

The UN nuclear watchdog on Wednesday reported that Iran has again boosted its stock of highly enriched uranium, just days before talks are set to resume seeking to revive the 2015 nuclear deal.

In a report seen by AFP, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) estimated Iran’s stockpile of highly enriched uranium at 2,489.7 kilograms — many times in excess of the limit laid down in the 2015 agreement.

The total amount now includes 113.8 kg enriched to 20 percent, up from 84.3 kg in September, and 17.7 kg enriched up to 60 percent, up from 10 kg, the report said.- ADVERTISEMENT -https://s.yimg.com/rq/darla/4-6-0/html/r-sf-flx.html

The document will be discussed during the IAEA’s Board of Governors, scheduled for next week with diplomats preparing to restart talks in Vienna on November 29 over reviving the moribund 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

The remaining parties to the deal — Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia — will join the talks while the United States will participate indirectly.

Iran’s acting head of mission to UN agencies in Vienna, Mohammad Reza Ghaebi, said the new report “shows that the IAEA has continued its verification and surveillance activities regarding Tehran’s engagements.”

Quoted by Iranian media, he said that talks were ongoing to “solve some issues between the two parties” and called on IAEA member states to refrain from “making hasty or politically motivated comments”.

A spokesman for Iran’s atomic agency told Fars news agency on Wednesday that IAEA chief Rafael Grossi would arrive in Tehran on Monday.

Grossi will meet Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Iranian Atomic Energy Organization chief Mohammad Eslami on Tuesday, the spokesman added.

– ‘Astonishing’ lack of contact –

On November 12, Grossi described as “astonishing” his lack of contact with the new Iranian government of President Ebrahim Raisi.

He said he had hoped to meet Iranian officials ahead of the next meeting of the IAEA’s Board of Governors, scheduled for next week.

During Grossi’s last visit to Tehran in September, he clinched a deal on access to monitoring equipment at Iran’s nuclear facilities.

But days later, the IAEA complained that it was prevented from “indispensable” access to a unit at the TESA complex in the city of Karaj, near Tehran, in violation of the September deal.

Iran’s ambassador to the IAEA rejected the charge, however, tweeting that “equipment related to this complex are not included for servicing”, referring to IAEA work on its monitoring equipment.

The IAEA on Wednesday also “categorically” denied its cameras had played a part in an unclaimed June attack on the TESA complex.

Tehran — which has blamed its arch-enemy Israel — told the agency it was investigating the possibility, the IAEA said in its report.

– ‘Excessively invasive’ –

The agreement that Grossi reached in September was an extension of a deal struck in February after Iran limited some of the IAEA’s activities in the country.

Wednesday’s report warned, however, that the repeated prolongation of the agreement was “becoming a significant challenge to the Agency’s ability to restore… continuity of knowledge” about Iran’s nuclear activities.

It warned that establishing clarity on activities in Karaj “has been widely recognised as essential in relation to a return to the JCPOA”, referring to the 2015 nuclear deal.

The Vienna talks later this month will discuss the possibility of reviving that agreement, which offered Tehran relief from sanctions in exchange for major curbs on its nuclear activities.

The United States unilaterally pulled out of the accord in 2018 under the administration of President Donald Trump.

In response, Iran began in 2019 walking back on its commitments under the nuclear deal, notably increasing its uranium enrichment.

In a separate report also issued on Wednesday, the IAEA said there had been virtually no progress in resolving several questions the agency has about the previous presence of nuclear material at undeclared sites in the country.

That report also noted that Grossi was “concerned by the incidences of Agency inspectors being subjected to excessively invasive physical searches by security officials at nuclear facilities” and called on Iran to “take immediate steps to rectify the situation”.

Iran Assembles Her First Nuclear Bomb: Daniel 8

Iran restarts production of advanced parts for nuclear program: report

BY BRAD DRESS – 11/16/21 04:29 PM EST

Iran has reportedly resumed production of equipment used for the development of nuclear weapons as talks between the U.S. and the Middle Eastern country remain stalled.

Iran has begun developing centrifuges, which can enrich uranium up to 90 percent purity to be used for nuclear weapon development, at its plant in Karaj, west of Tehran, diplomats told The Wall Street Journal.

The country may have constructed parts to build up to 170 advanced centrifuges, adding to what is believed to be an arsenal of 1,000 centrifuges stored in an underground facility.

The Karaj plant was bombed in June during a raid Iran blamed on Israel. The United Nations International Atomic Energy Commission has been denied access to the facility and other places in Iran storing uranium material since February.

The Obama-era deal, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, limited Iran’s nuclear production in return for sanctions relief. But former President Trump pulled out of it in 2018, calling it a “defective” deal and arguing the country would still develop weapons.

The Trump administration also reimposed economic sanctions on Iran in November 2018. 

Biden’s negotiations with Iran have faltered since the election of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in June. And a top Iranian official said in November that talks to rejoin the 2015 pact were doomed without “guarantees” from the Biden administration.

However, talks to restart those negotiations will reportedly be held in Vienna later this month, involving the U.S. and Iran along with the United Kingdom, China, France, Germany and Russia.

  • Israel has staged hundreds of strikes on targets inside government-controlled Syria over the years but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations

DAMASCUS, Syria: Syria’s state-run media said Israel carried out an attack on the country’s south early Wednesday with two missiles targeting an empty house and causing no casualties
The missiles came from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and aimed at the building south of the capital Damascus, the state-run news agency SANA said. It said Syria’s defense systems intercepted one of the incoming missiles. The attack caused no losses, the agency said.
Israel carries out raids on Syria mostly during nighttime. Wednesday’s raid occurred shortly after midnight, SANA said.
Israel has staged hundreds of strikes on targets inside government-controlled Syria over the years but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations.
Israel has acknowledged, however, that it is targeting bases of Iran-allied militias, such as the powerful Lebanese militant Hezbollah group. It says it is going after posts and arms shipments believed to be bound for the groups. Hezbollah is fighting on the side of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces in the decade-old civil war.
Israel says Iranian presence on its northern frontier is a red line, justifying its strikes on facilities and weapons inside Syria.

Iran Remains Committed To Having A Nuclear Weapon, Despite The Cost And Isolation This Causes – OpEdIsraeli troops kill armed Palestinian outside the Temple : Revelation 11

 Hamid Enayat  0 Comments

Why such an attachment to nuclear weapons, and why does it lead to a deadlock? 

The dispute is about post-JCPOA issues

“The problem is not in the JCPOA [1] talks; the problem is in the future of the nuclear talks,” said an Iranian regime theorist. “In the nuclear negotiations, the United States is looking for negotiations on JCPOA and post-JCPOA, while Iran wants to negotiate only within the framework of JCPOA and not beyond,” he added.

Before his election, U.S. President Joe Biden laid out his roadmap, saying he was prepared to renege on the nuclear deal and lift sanctions, but Iran’s missile programs and regional interventions must also be discussed.

According to this theorist, “assuming that all disputes are put aside, and Iran and the United States agree on the outcome, that Iran returns to its obligations and the United States lifts sanctions, Washington will again say: Let’s talk about missiles and regional influence. But Tehran says: JCPOA and nothing else, not a word more, not a word less.”

Therefore, the Iranian regime is procrastinating to buy time to enrich uranium to a higher degree (or pretend to do so). It also aims to trigger panic in the P5+1 to obtain more concessions. However, reports indicate that given the explosions at the main Natanz facility and the elimination of Fakhrizadeh, the father of Iranian nuclear power, it will not be possible to produce an atomic bomb for a long time.

Asymmetric war

After the Iran-Iraq war, a theory emerged in Tehran that power was not limited to a thriving economy, long-standing democratic institutions, and a formidable army, but that superpowers could be challenged in asymmetric warfare. As the country grew stronger, power turned to nuclear weapons building, terrorism, and regional influence.

It sees nuclear weapons as a guarantee of its survival. After the Iranian opposition, the People’s Mojahedin, revealed in 2003 that Tehran was building an atomic bomb, international pressure put a serious brake on the process. It, therefore, turned to extending its regional influence and developing missiles as an alternative.

According to an Iranian analyst in power circles, “What can guarantee the survival of the JCOPA is Iran’s national strength: first, preserving its nuclear capabilities so that if the Americans want to play again, Iran will move towards 90% enriched uranium. Second, maintaining the country’s defense strength (its missile and drone development program), and finally, reducing its vulnerability to sanctions.”

Another source close to the Iranian regime believes that what prevents another Trump from breaking the deal is that “Iran says if the deal is broken, then Iran will build its own bomb and we will set Saudi Arabia on fire.” Otherwise, according to an analyst who requested anonymity, if Iran is deemed weak, the P5+1 will not only dismantle its nuclear facilities but also reduce its missile power and call for an unconditional withdrawal from the region. 

This analyst assumes that Iran is a lightweight boxer and P5+1 is a heavyweight. For him, “no one expects a lightweight to win, but if he can resist and buy time, he will wear out his opponent in this confrontation. We must increase our resistance, and above all, strengthen the economy. I am sure that what keeps the power breathing is first its economy, second its defense capability, and third the amount of enriched uranium.”

Sitting on a powder keg  

The Iranian regime is aware of the explosive state of society due to galloping inflation and the poverty of 80% of the population. It knows that a spark could set off a much more terrible explosion than in the 2018 and 2019 uprisings. According to a former strategic researcher, the economic collapse and the resulting pressures, as well as fears of a new uprising, will lead the Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to conclude that there is no other way forward than to accept the demands of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany. Like the capitulation to UN resolution 598 during the Iran-Iraq war or Khomeini’s release of American hostages under international pressure, the Iranian regime only understands the language of force.

How to prevent the Iranian regime from acquiring an atomic bomb

Respect for human rights and protection of the lives of protesters should be at the heart of any negotiations with the clerical regime. Insisting on human rights and adopting a decisive policy is indispensable to prevent the regime from acquiring the bomb.

Another Tremble Before the Sixth Seal: Revelation 6

Earthquake reported in SC for the second time in a week. This one was more powerful

By Noah FeitUpdated November 16, 2021 11:40 AM

For the second time in a week, an earthquake was confirmed in South Carolina.

low-level earthquake was confirmed in the Upstate, just south of Arial near Easley, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The 2.2 magnitude earthquake happened at 3:25 a.m. in Pickens County.

The seismic activity that had a depth of 5.4 kilometers is the 22nd earthquake in South Carolina in 2021 to be confirmed by the USGS.

This comes one week after an 1.5 magnitude earthquake was reported on Nov. 9 in the Lowcountry.

No damage or injuries have been reported from Tuesday’s earthquake.

It makes sense since earthquakes that register 2.5 magnitude or less often go unnoticed and are only recorded by a seismograph, according to Michigan Technological University. Any quake less than 5.5 magnitude is not likely to cause significant damage, the school said.

Anyone who felt the quake can report it to the USGS.

It’s the ninth earthquake recorded in the past month in the Palmetto State, according to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. In addition to the earthquake in the Lowcountry, seven of the previous quakes were reported by S.C. Department of Natural Resources in the Jenkinsville area in Fairfield County, from Oct. 25 through Nov. 1.

The most powerful earthquake recorded in South Carolina this year was a 3.3-magnitude quake near Centerville on Sept. 27. That was the third of three earthquakes recorded in that area that day.

It is typical for South Carolina to have between six and 10 earthquakes a year, the S.C. Geological Survey reported. There were at least 11 earthquakes reported by the USGS in South Carolina in 2020.

On Oct. 17, another earthquake was confirmed just over the state line in the Lincolnton area of Georgia, along the Savannah River.

One of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded in South Carolina happened in Charleston on Aug. 31, 1886. The estimated 7.3 magnitude quake killed 60 people and was felt over 2.5 million square miles, from Cuba to New York, and Bermuda to the Mississippi River, according to the Emergency Management Division.
