The Huge Magnitude 6.5 Earthquake That Just Hit Idaho Continues Alarming Trend Of Western Quakes

March 31, 2020 by Michael Snyder

Why has the western United States suddenly been shaking so violently over the past several weeks?  On Tuesday, the constant barrage of headlines about the coronavirus pandemic was interrupted by an enormous earthquake that hit central Idaho.  Of course Idaho is not exactly known for earthquakes, and so this was quite a surprise.  In fact, the largest quake in Idaho history was the magnitude 6.9 Borah Peak earthquake in 1983.  So when a magnitude 6.5 earthquake stuck not too far from Boise on Tuesday, it really stunned a whole lot of people.  And according to the Spokesman-Review, this quake could be felt as far away as Calgary

An earthquake hit southern Idaho on Tuesday afternoon, with shakes felt as far as Calgary, Canada, Boise and Spokane.

The United States Geological Survey measured a 6.5-magnitude earthquake at a depth of 10 miles just before 5 p.m. The center of the quake took place about 45 miles west of Challis, Idaho.

This is an event that those living up in the Northwest will remember for a long time to come.  There was a tremendous amount of shaking all over the region, and according to at least one report some people actually “ran outside yelling”…

An entry in Volcano Discovery said: “Sustained moderate shaking for several minutes, Rumbling sound heard, people ran outside yelling. Knickknacks fell off shelf.

“Items suspended from ceiling/beams still slightly swaying 10 minutes later.”

All the way over in Helena, Montana someone described the shaking like being “on a small ship at sea during a storm”, and a restaurant owner in Stanley, Idaho reported that “the water next to me is still vibrating”

Brett Woolley, a restaurant owner in Stanley, said he heard earthquake coming before he felt it.

“I heard the roar, and at first it sounded like the wind but then the roar was tremendous,” Woolley said about 10 minutes after the earthquake. “The whole house was rattling, and I started to panic. I’m sitting here perfectly still and the water next to me is still vibrating.”

The epicenter of this earthquake was approximately 78 miles from Boise and approximately 330 miles from Yellowstone.

Needless to say, any major seismic event anywhere near Yellowstone is a cause for concern.

And of course this quake comes less than two weeks after a magnitude 5.7 earthquake hit near Salt Lake City on March 18th

An earthquake struck near Salt Lake City Wednesday morning, shutting down a major air traffic hub, damaging a spire atop a temple and frightening millions of people already on edge from the coronavirus pandemic.

Though there were no reports of injuries and no damage was immediately reported in areas along the Utah-Idaho border, there was damage scattered in the Salt Lake City area — with the earthquake showering bricks onto sidewalks and releasing a chemical plume outside the city.

In fact, that quake caused so much shaking that it actually knocked the trumpet out of the grasp of the statue of the angel Moroni

The 5.7-magnitude earthquake that shook Utah Wednesday morning also dislodged a symbolic part of Salt Lake City’s iconic Mormon temple: the trumpet of an angel statue atop its highest spire.

The temple is the spiritual focal point for the 16 million members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Following that dramatic seismic event, there have been hundreds of aftershocks.

And remember, this is not a part of the country that is known for lots of quakes.

According to the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, there had already been 658 aftershocks from that event as of Monday morning

More than 600 earthquakes have hit across Utah and surrounding areas after a 5.7-magnitude quake struck near Salt Lake City about two weeks ago, according to University of Utah Seismograph Stations.

As of Monday morning, the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, or UUSS, recorded 658 earthquakes as part of a series of aftershocks.

Of course there will be plenty of aftershocks following the quake that just hit Idaho as well.

As I write this article, there have already been five aftershocks greater than magnitude 3.0 that have hit the region.  By the time you read this article, that number may be substantially higher.

With all of this shaking going on in Idaho and Utah, many on the west coast may be wondering if they are next.

According to CalTech, there have been more than 1,100 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last 7 days.  A couple of magnitude 5 quakes struck off the coast of northern California during March, and that certainly rattled some nerves, but everyone understands that something far, far larger is eventually coming.

For years, scientists have been telling us that “the Big One” is way overdue and that we are not prepared for it.

And for years I have been warning people about what will eventually happen if they remain on the California coastline.

We live at a time when everything that can be shaken will be shaken.  The crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and this latest earthquake in Idaho is yet another example.

In Luke 21:11, Jesus told us the following about what things would be like in the last days…

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

You may have noticed that a “pestilence” is rapidly spreading across the face of the globe right now.

And at the same time, enormous earthquakes keep popping off like firecrackers with frightening regularity.

Unfortunately, most Americans don’t understand the bigger picture, and what we have experienced so far is just the beginning…

The charity Samaritan’s Purse sets up a field hospital to care for COVID-19 patients in Central Park, New York

New York (AFP) – In New York’s Central Park on Sunday, a field hospital was going up.

Dozens of people worked in a drizzle to erect the facility for an expected influx of COVID-19 patients at the epicentre of the US coronavirus pandemic.

Samaritan’s Purse, a US-based Christian global relief agency, is setting up the hospital on the park’s East Meadow lawn, where workers in face masks unloaded a white tarp and other equipment on the grass. The site is right across from one of the facilities in the Mount Sinai hospital group.

“There’s lots of cases here in New York and a lot of people that need help,” said Elliott Tenpenny, a doctor and team leader for Samaritan’s Purse COVID-19 Response Team.

“The hospitals all over the city are filling up and they need as much help as they can get. That’s why we’re here.”

He said the charity was working with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Mount Sinai, with the aim of receiving patients within two days.

Unlike other temporary facilities going up in the New York region, this site will have the equipment and personnel necessary to handle COVID-19 patients. Tenpenny called it a “respiratory focused field hospital” which will have a capacity of 68 patients, and the doctors and nurses to treat them.

Samaritan’s Purse has set up a similar temporary hospital in Cremona, Italy, the country with the highest COVID-19 death toll.

On Sunday Cuomo announced that New York state has more than 59,500 cases and 965 deaths, making it by far the hardest-hit area of the United States. Those figures give it more than 40 percent of the country’s cases and deaths, data from Johns Hopkins University show.

New York medical staff are struggling with long hours and a dire need for hospital-grade masks and other protective gear.

Tenpenny said that although his organization is faith-based, “we provide care to anybody at anytime without regard to who they are, just if they have need.”

The charity has been helping the world’s victims of war, poverty, natural disasters and other crises since 1970.

“These are usually international after disasters but the US is in massive need right now and so here we are setting up to help our own country,” Tenpenny said

Trump says coronavirus ‘peak in death rate’ likely in 2 weeks, extends social-distancing guidelines through April 30

By Gregg Re | Fox News

Speaking at a contentious White House coronavirus news briefing on Sunday that involved testy standoffs with multiple reporters, President Trump declared that “the peak in death rate” in the coronavirus pandemic “is likely to hit in two weeks,” and said the federal government will be extending its social-distancing guidelines through April 30.

“The modeling estimates that the peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks. I will say it again. The peak, the highest point of death rates, remember this, is likely to hit in two weeks… Therefore, we will be extending our guidelines to April 30, to slow the spread,” the president said in the White House Rose Garden.

Saying his earlier hope that the country could reopen by Easter was “just an aspiration,” Trump added: “We can expect that by June 1, we will be well on our way to recovery” and that “a lot of great things will be happening.”

When asked about worst-case scenarios if the country were to remain closed indefinitely, the president responded, “You’re gonna have large numbers of suicides — tremendous [numbers of] suicides… You will see drugs being used like nobody has ever used them before, and people are going to be dying all over the place.”

On a positive note, Trump went on to say that “two of the country’s largest health insurers — Humana and Cigna — have announced that they will waive copays, coinsurance, and deductibles for coronavirus treatments.”

In response to a question at the briefing, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, reiterated his estimate from earlier in the day that it remained possible that 100,000 to 200,000 people could die in the United States. “What we’re trying to do is not let that happen,” he said, calling the extension of social-distancing guidelines “a wise and prudent decision.” Over 2,300 people with the virus already have died in the U.S.

“Models are good, but models often generate the kind of anxious question you asked,” Fauci said, when a reporter asked how bad the situation could become. “A model is as good as the assumptions you put into the model, and very often, many of these assumptions are based on a complexity of issues that aren’t necessarily the same… from one country to another.”

Fauci said the April 30 extension came after he, Dr. Deborah Birx and other members of the task force had made the recommendation.

“Why don’t you people act a little more positively — it’s always get-you, get-you.”

— President Trump, to PBS News reporter

Trump said he’d seen early estimates that 2.2 million people could have died if the government had done nothing in a worst-case scenario, so “if we can hold that down to 100,000” or less, it would be a “good job.” Had the country simply ridden the virus “like a cowboy” and driven “that sucker right through,” the president insisted, disaster would have unfolded.

Separately, Trump openly questioned why the demand for surgical masks has skyrocketed in New York City and elsewhere, urging assembled reporters that they “oughtta look into it” because “something’s going on.”

The head-turning moment came just hours after Trump touted the sky-high ratings for his coronavirus press briefings, and shortly after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged his constituents not to “look back” on his prior statements downplaying the coronavirus.

“How do you go from 10 to 20 to 30,000, to 300,000 [masks] — even though this is different,” Trump asked. “Something is going on, and you ought to look into it as reporters. Where are the masks going? Are they going out the back door? How do you go from 10,000 to 300,000? And, we have that in a lot of different places. So, somebody should probably look into that. I just don’t see from a practical standpoint how that’s possible to go from that to that, and we have that happening in numerous places.”

Pressed on the matter later at the briefing, Trump called on New Yorkers to “check” Gov. Andrew Cuomo and de Blasio, both Democrats, about the changing mask numbers. “People should check them, because there’s something going on.” He asserted that it could be “something worse than hoarding.”

Cuomo said earlier this month that some people were stealing medical supplies. “Not just people taking a couple or three, I mean just actual thefts of those products,” Cuomo said. “I’ve asked the state police to do an investigation, look at places that are selling masks, medical equipment, protective wear, feeding the anxiety.” Nevertheless, a CNN “fact-check” reporter, among others, accused Trump of making his claim without “evidence.”

Furious nurses staged protests outside of Jacobi Hospital’s emergency room in the Bronx over the weekend, claiming there was a dangerous shortage of masks and gloves there. Sean Petty, a pediatric nurse at the hospital, told the New York Post: ‘We need billions of N95 masks. This policy that was put out by the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] is killing nurses. We already lost our first nurse in New York City. We’re gonna lose more.”

Trump remarked that “many of the states are stocked up” on various critical supplies including ventilators — although, he added, “some don’t admit it.” Later, Trump suggested that “there’s a question as to hoarding of ventilators” in which some hospitals may be keeping the devices in case of a major problem in the future.

Also at the briefing, Trump unloaded after PBS News’ Yamiche Alcindor — a frequent Trump antagonist who previously has asked numerous questions during coronavirus briefings about whether an unnamed administration official really used the term “Kung Flu” —  began with another critical query about Trump’s past comments to Fox News on New York’s demands or ventilators.

Specifically, Alcindor accused Trump of saying that governors were requesting equipment they “don’t actually need.” In fact, Trump said that in some cases, “equipment’s being asked for that I don’t think they’ll need” by the end of the pandemic. Alcindor doubled down when Trump pushed back on her characterization of his comments.

“Why don’t you people act a little more positively — it’s always trying to get-you, get-you, get you,” Trump responded. “And you know what? That’s why nobody trusts the media anymore. That’s why you used to work for the Times and now you work for somebody else. Let me tell you something: Be nice. Don’t be threatening. Be nice.”

That confrontation prompted another wave of sympathy for Alcindor among left-wing journalists. Alcindor herself complained on social media that she was unfairly victimized by the president. (“I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job,” she wrote.)

Minutes later, Trump tusseled with CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond, who alleged the president had definitively said on Friday that he’d cut off communications with governors who weren’t appreciative of his coronavirus efforts. Trump shot back that Washington state’s governor, Democrat Jay Inslee, was a “nasty” person, and reiterated that Vice President Mike Pence would remain in open communications even with hostile governors.

“Your statement is a lie,” Trump said flatly. Trump slammed Diamond for omitting a portion of Trump’s quote in which Trump said governors and local officials needed to appreciate the broader federal disaster relief effort, not just Trump’s own initiatives.

“We lift up their ratings, because their ratings are very low,” Trump said, explaining why CNN had sent Diamond to the briefing even though some network figures have expressed open disdain for the president.

“I’m well aware that Trump has made plenty of mistakes handling this crisis,” wrote The National Review’s Alexandra DeSanctis after the briefing.”I’d just like to know how the media baiting him and alternating between throwing themselves pity parties and patting each other on the back improves that situation. These Gallup numbers [showing declining media popularity] are not a fluke.”

For the most part, however, the president largely sounded positive notes as to practical developments over the past 24 hours of the crisis.

In addition to the waived copays and deductibles, Trump touted “some interesting” therapeutics that “will be announced over the next few weeks.” He said he has been working on getting a system that could sterilize health-care workers’ masks up to 20 times more quickly approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Trump went on to praise the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA] for turning New York City’s Javits Center into a makeshift emergency hospital.

“It’s an incredible, complex, top-of-the-line hospital. Everyone’s trying to figure out how they did it,” Trump said, noting that he was also unsure. “And, I was a good builder.”

The president maintained distance from other speakers at the briefing, and referenced social-distancing guidelines as soon as he took to the podium.

“Appreciate everybody being here — beautiful day in the Rose Garden,” Trump remarked as the press conference began. “Tremendous distance between chairs.”

“We’re all in this together — all us of us,” Trump said at the conclusion of the briefing. “I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s a beautiful thing to watch. Unfortunately, the enemy is death, so it’s very unpleasant. But, the level of competence, the level of caring, the level of love — I just think it’s brilliant. … I’m very proud to be your president.”

Elected Knesset speaker by right wing, Gantz heads for government with Netanyahu

Emerging deal with Likud will reportedly see Blue and White leader as either foreign or defense minister, to take over as PM in 18 months; Lapid to head opposition

By Raoul Wootliff 26 March 2020, 7:25 pm 11

After a dramatic U-turn, Blue and White party chairman Benny Gantz was elected Knesset speaker Thursday evening as part of an emerging unity deal, breaking up his centrist alliance to enter a government with his longtime foe Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Receiving the full support of the right-wing bloc, Gantz was elected to the speaker’s post with the backing of 74 MKs. Eighteen voted against and the rest, including Yesh Atid, a faction within Blue and White, did not participate.

According to the reported deal taking shape, Gantz is set to partner with Netanyahu in a unity government, serving initially as foreign or defense minister and then taking over from Netanyahu as prime minister in September 2021. Gantz is expected to resign the speakership after a unity government is formed, to be replaced by a Likud MK.

In his first speech as Knesset speaker, immediately following the vote, Gantz promised to “examine and promote” a national unity government, but said that he would not betray his voters. He also cited the burgeoning coronavirus pandemic, saying that Israel needed such an “emergency” unity government to battle it.

“Democracy has won,” he claimed, referencing the bitter battle he fought over the past week with his predecessor as speaker, Yuli Edelstein of Likud, who tried to prevent a vote on the speakership, defied a High Court order to schedule it, and resigned on Wednesday. MK Meir Cohen, from Yesh Atid, was Blue and White’s initial candidate to take the job but withdrew on Thursday afternoon after Gantz presented his own candidacy.

Gantz promised in his speech to “build and strengthen democracy.”

“We will regulate its system of checks and balances, stop the unbridled attacks from irresponsible ministers, remove ideas of replacing the court and the prosecution, and work to end the rifts between us,” he said in pointed comments.

“I promise to all Israelis to do the right thing at this time. The Knesset will work for the people and citizens — all of them,” he said.

Gantz said that despite disagreements with Likud, he had chosen “to unify the people and not divide.”

“These are not ordinary days and require extraordinary decisions,” he said, citing the coronavirus crisis. “Therefore, as I said, I intend to examine and promote in every possible way a national emergency government.

“But don’t be mistaken — I would never compromise on the principles for which more than one million citizens voted,” Gantz continued. “Netanyahu knows this well and we have proven it well in recent days. I proved myself and we all proved we will never compromise on democracy.”

Gantz’s decision to join forces with Netanyahu led to the swift collapse of Blue and White, with the party’s No. 2, Yair Lapid, rejecting the move and apparently heading into the opposition with others from his Yesh Atid faction of Blue and White. “Gantz chose Netanyahu over Lapid,” Channel 12 reported succinctly.

Yesh Atid and Moshe Ya’alon’s Telem faction both filed a formal request to break away from Blue and White late on Thursday afternoon, leaving only Gantz’s Israel Resilience Party to join forces with Netanyahu’s Likud. Lapid had reportedly told Gantz he preferred that Israel go to fourth elections than see Blue and White partner with Netanyahu.

Rightist MKs Tzvi Hauser and Yoaz Hendel from the Telem faction, both, however, voted for Gantz as speaker.

The coalition is likely to constitute 78-79 MKs — Likud, Gantz’s Israel Resilience, Labor, Yamina, Shas and United Torah Judaism — according to Channel 12 (although other reports indicated Labor’s inclusion was not certain.) That would leave Lapid’s Yesh Atid, Ya’alon’s Telem, Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beytenu, Meretz and the mainly Arab Joint List in the opposition. However, various other fluctuations are deemed possible, with Telem’s Hendel and Hauser, for instance, possibly joining the coalition if this is permissible under Knesset laws.

The unity deal took shape as the Knesset met to vote on a new speaker, following Edelstein’s resignation on Wednesday.

If the unity deal pans out, Gantz will move from the speaker’s chair to the Foreign or Defense ministries for the first 18 months of the emergency unity government, before succeeding Netanyahu as prime minister.

It was not clear what post Netanyahu would fill at that stage. The prime minister has been indicted in three corruption cases, in a trial that was supposed to begin last week but has been postponed to May amid the coronavirus crisis. By law, a lawmaker under indictment is barred from serving as a minister.

Yoav Kisch, a Likud MK, used the debate preceding the vote on a speaker to praise Gantz for his “courageous” move in partnering with Netanyahu in the period of the coronavirus pandemic.

Meretz MK Tamar Zandberg, by contrast, warned Gantz from the podium: “You’ll end up a rug under the feet of an alleged crook, an inciter and racist… We’re standing here in shock trying to comprehend the depth of the deception… the disaster you’re inflicting on millions of voters [who backed] the left-democratic bloc… who sought an alternative [to Netanyahu].”

She continued: “What have you done, Benny Gantz? How can you do this to the millions of voters who supported you?”

The emerging coalition will include the Labor party, which will split from the Meretz party, Channel 12 said. Fellow former IDF chief of staff MK Gabi Ashkenazi — No. 4 in the collapsed Blue and White party — will reportedly be either defense or foreign minister, and MK Chili Tropper will be the

The Coronavirus Pandemic Is An Engineered ‘Black Swan Event’ Released To Tear Down The Existing Global System And Create New World Order

Isn’t anyone even the slightest bit suspicious about how fast this $2 trillion dollar bailout came into being? It’s almost like they already had the paperwork drawn up! By the time it’s done, it will be the largest, single government bailout in human history, all this for a virus that runs it’s course in a couple of months? The Spanish Flu of 1918 killed over 50,000,000 people in a single year, the coronavirus even with worse-case predictions will not amount to a fraction of that. And yet, the entire world is on lockdown, why now?

by Geoffrey Grider March 25, 2020

We are watching the coronavirus pandemic being used to collapse the existing global system to make way for the coming New World Order, and nothing will ever again be the same.

As you read this, over one-third of the world is on lockdown, with more countries issuing the order by the day. The morgues in New York City are filled to capacity, with no place to store the dead bodies. Officials were told that morgues in the city are expected to reach capacity next week, per the briefing. A third person familiar with the situation in New York said some of the city’s hospital morgues hit capacity in the past seven days. Hawaii and North Carolina have asked for mortuary help as well, and the disaster response agency is currently reviewing the requests.

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24: 7,8 (KJB)

The world is changing right now, it is changing economically, financially and socially, to such a degree that one can only surmise watching this that a New World Order is preparing to rise up from the ashes of the coronavirus crisis. Never in modern history has there been such a volatile reaction to an infectious outbreak. AIDS, SARS, Ebola, West Nile Virus, and Swine Flu didn’t come anywhere near the level of panic we are seeing now. What we are watching is an event that is absolutely unique in our modern era, and could quite possibly be unique in human history. Not the virus, the reaction to the virus.

According to Rasmussen Reports, “between 750,000 and 1.1 million Americans may die of this disease before it runs its course. The latter figure is equal to all the U.S. dead in World War II and on both sides in the Civil War. Chancellor Angela Merkel warns that 70% of Germany’s population — 58 million people — could contract the coronavirus. If she is right, and Fauci’s mortality rate holds for her country, that could mean more than half a million dead Germans. If Fauci’s 1% mortality rate and Lipsitch’s estimate prove on target, between 3 billion and 5 billion people on earth will be infected, and 30 million to 50 million will die, a death toll greater than that of the Spanish Flu of 1918.”

But the real story is not in the mortality rate as all pandemics are harsh when it comes to that. In 20019. Obama’s Swine Flu outbreak wound up generating over 60 million infections globally, resulting in 12,469 deaths in the United States, and guess what? No masks, no quarantines, no lock-downs, no panic. The real story is the panic and actions being taken by world governments that are bringing about hyper-radical change.

Isn’t anyone even the slightest bit suspicious about how fast this $2 trillion dollar bailout came into being? It’s almost like they already had the paperwork drawn up! By the time it’s done, it will be the largest, single government bailout in human history, all this for a virus that runs it’s course in a couple of months? The Spanish Flu of 1918 killed over 50,000,000 people in a single year, the coronavirus even with worse-case predictions will not amount to a fraction of that. And yet, the entire world is on lockdown, why now?

We are watching the coronavirus pandemic being used to collapse the existing global system to make way for the coming New World Order, nothing will ever again be the same. The coronavirus is real, people are actually dying, and you need to protect yourself and your loved ones the best you can. But this panic, this rush to throw trillions at the problem is absolutely manufactured, I don’t believe a bit of it. Under the guise of the coronavirus pandemic, power is being seized within the United States, and it will not be returned to the people. If the United States falls, the whole world will fall, and a new world order will emerge from the ashes.

Experts Raised ‘Increased Warning’ Over Active Volcanos Amid “High Risk” Activity

23 March 2020, 1:40 am EDT By Peter G. Tech Times

Yellowstone volcano is acting up once again, with an “increased risk” warning. Scientists are uneasy with the deep magma intrusion that has been building up ever since it was discovered in nearly four decades ago. 

Scientists Use GPS Data to Model What Might Have Happened Below The Surface

As scientists continue to speculate as to what happened underneath the surface of Yellowstone, they had to resort to the usage of GPS modeling to render what might have happened to explain the erratic nature of the location. The surface seems to be deflating and inflating in irregular patterns. 

Research Published Last January

Their research published in the Journal of Geophysical Research has revealed that a vast body of magma had “intruded” beneath Norris sometime in the Nineties. It also wrote, “Recent activity has provided new insights into the causes of surface deformation in and around the Yellowstone Caldera, a topic that has been debated since the discovery of caldera floor uplift more than four decades ago. 

“An episode of unusually rapid uplift centred near Norris Geyser Basin along the north caldera rim began in late 2013 and continued until an earthquake on March 30, 2014, thereafter, uplift abruptly switched to subsidence. 

“Split at rates of several centimetres per year resumed in 2016 and continued at least through to the end of 2018. 

“Modelling of GPS and interferometric synthetic aperture radar data suggests an evolving process of deep magma intrusion during 1996-2001.”

What is The Norris Geyser Basin?

This is a part of the park that is the oldest, hottest, and most lively in terms of thermal emission. This is also an area as large as the size of Chicago, and so far is the most at risk where an eruption would start in Yellowstone’s supervolcano. 

Dan Dzurisin has also published something in reference to the supervolcano and had this to say: ‘Hydrothermal explosion features are prominent in the Norris Geyser Basin area, and the apparent shallow nature of the volatile accumulation implies an increased risk of hydrothermal explosions.’

‘For the first time, we’ve been able to track an entire episode of magma intrusion, degassing, and gas ascent to the near-surface. For those in the know, like you, that’s awesome-not alarming,’

What Happens Now And Should You Worry?

Magma-derived fluids are closer to the surface now just about a mile or so below Yellowstone. Thankfully, the research has debunked many who believes that their lives are in danger. Many people say that it is already overdue for an eruption, Jacob Lowentern is Yellowstone Volcano Observatory’s Scientists-in-Charge said: “When you see people claiming it’s overdue, usually the numbers they come up with say the last eruption was 640,000 years ago, but it erupts every 600,000 years.” 

“But, in fact, if you average the eruption intervals, there’s 2.1 million to 1.3 million and then another 640,000 years ago. If you average those numbers you come up with something that’s over 700,000 yearsSo, in reality, even if you tried to make this argument, it wouldn’t be overdue for another 70,000 years,”  said Lowentern.

Five Earthquakes Hit Carolinas And Tennessee In Fifteen Hours

By Andrew Bieszad on March 16, 2020 in Featured, General

Natural disasters pose a major threat to the US, perhaps even more than a political threat, because the former cannot be controlled for the most part, and if such were to happen at a politically unstable time, the results could be disastrous. According to a recent report from the Charlotte Observer, five earthquakes hit the Carolinas and Tennessee in less than fifteen hours.

At least five earthquakes reaching up to 2.4 magnitude rattled the Carolinas and Tennessee within 24 hours, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.

The other quakes ranged from 1.7 to 2.2 magnitude, according to the USGS.

The series of quakes began around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday in Mulberry, North Carolina, the USGS reported. More followed over the next several hours, with the most recent one striking around 8 a.m. Monday.

The largest 2.4 quake hit around 11 p.m. near Centerville, South Carolina — about 30 miles southwest of Greenville, according to the USGS. At least 480 people, some as far as 300 miles away in Georgia, reported feeling the tremor to the agency. (source)

Could this be a sign of more earthquakes in the region? It is possible, but the main to watch is if one starts seeing them near the Mississippi river region or near Yellowstone, as there are major inland fault lines in those regions that pose a direct threat to the country.

If The Internet Is Suspended Or Shut Down For Any Reason, That’ll Be All The Proof You Will Need To Know The Coronavirus Panic Is Engineered

William Haseltine, president of the global health think tank ACCESS Health International, who recently chaired the U.S.-China Health Summit in Wuhan, where the virus likely originated, has a theory. “There are four ways,” the doctor told The Daily Beast. “One, it peters out with the weather. Two, everybody gets infected, so it’s got no new places to go… so it ends—but that’s a pretty horrible ending. Three is a vaccine, which is about a year away. Fourth way is the most likely: We’re going to have a few drugs, within a few weeks to a few months, that prevent people from getting infected—like PrEP for HIV—and for treatment.”

by Geoffrey Grider March 16, 2020

As major cultural events are forgotten, workplaces, bars, and restaurants close, and prominent politicians around the world go into quarantine, two simple questions about the novel coronavirus pandemic seem to rise above the rest: How long will this last? And how will it end?

Last night we brought to you an intense, 2-hour bible study on the timeline arc for how prophetic events come to pass. We showed you the 400-year arc from Malachi 3 and 4 to Luke 2 that resulted in the fulfillment of prophecy of the coming Messiah. We showed you the 51-year arc from 1897 to 1948 regarding the ‘phase one’ prophecy for God to regather the Jews back to the land of Israel. And last we showed you how, for all practical intents and purposes the New World Order found in Daniel 7:23-26 began on September 11, 1991, and here 29 years into that the whole world has gone crazy over the COVID-19 coronavirus.

“Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.” Daniel 7:23-26 (KJB)

Make no mistake about it, the COVID-19 coronavirus is real, it is not a hoax, and it is actually making thousands sick with a small percentage of those people dying from it. Take any and all precautions you deem necessary for the protection and safety of you and your loved one, I am taking it seriously and taking precautions. But while the coronavirus is in fact real, the fear and panic that is being forced upon us is not, we are being told to be afraid and we are obeying.

“Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:12 (KJB)

I believe that the key sign that this is being done by the New World Order will be if and when the Internet begins to get really spotty and sporadic, or if it for whatever reason shuts down altogether. If that happens, it will be proof that after isolating us in our homes, they are then taking away our ability to communicate with each other and share the truth. If anything happens to the Internet, then in my opinion, it will truly be time to panic. NTEB will be monitoring this around the clock, and as soon as we know something new, so will you.

The Department of Health and Human Services experienced some form of cyberattack Sunday night related to its coronavirus response, administration sources confirm to ABC News.

The attempt was to slow down operations, sources say. https://t.co/AmYSXi7FQQ

The ‘Elite’ Bugging Out To Their Bunkers Another Sign ‘The Great Freakout’ Has Begun – Study Hints Millions Of Americans May Be Infected Without Even Knowing It, Yet Spreading COVID-19 To Others

– Was COVID-19 Engineered To Usher In The Globalists End Game? 

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die


The ‘great freakout’ has begun.

While the twitter hashtag #CancelEverything trended for much of Wednesday night after the NBA season was cancelled, President Trump announced flights from Europe into America would be ‘temporarily’ halted by Friday and Americans who hadn’t been paying attention finally began to realize that a full-fledged pandemic had been unleashed upon our nation, some of doctors worst fears have been confirmed with reports COVID-19 can survive in the air for up to 3 hours, live on surfaces for up to 3 days with doctors also now warning this coronavirus is 10 times more lethal than the seasonal flu.

With the media’s of China, Russia and Iran now pushing a ‘conspiracy theory’ that COVID-19 is a US biological weapon despite the fact that this pandemic began in Wuhan, China, home to one of China’s most top secret bioweapons laboratories, warnings from a Harvard epidemiologist that coronavirus will likely infect between 40% and 70% of the world this year also trended on twitter on Thursday morning, awakening the masses just partially to the ‘new reality‘ that Americans and the world will face in 2020. 

As Natural News had reported in this recent story, with the state of New York activating the National Guard and erecting a ‘coronavirus containment zone’ around the small city of New Rochelle, just the first of likely many to come in the days, weeks and months ahead should America not get this outbreak under control, the show ‘Containment’ helps us to understand that any estimate of just how short or how long a ‘medical martial law lock down’ might really last is sure to change, with estimates of two weeks sure to change to a month and then 3 months and possibly even longer should this thing explode in America. And with COVID-19 taking very little time to go from just breaking out to ‘endemic’ in the state of Washington, many have warned that this is how the globalists could complete their lockdown of America and the world with forced vaccinations, medical martial law and tyranny ahead.

So while we’ll absolutely pray that theory is wrong, as we’ll explore within this ANP story, with health authorities in the state of Ohio believing perhaps 100,000 residents of the state have the virus via community spread without even knowing it and Ohio just one US state of 50, and now Congress being warned 150 million Americans will likely get the disease, there could already potentially be a million or more Americans who have already been infected, have no idea they’ve been infected, and are walking around spreading it to others. A disaster in the making. 

(ANP FUNDRAISER! Following unforseen medical expenses, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the days, weeks and months ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this ‘Info-war’ for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruption.)

The new story out on Thursday over at the Daily Mail titled “Coronavirus can live in patients for up to FIVE WEEKS after they first fall ill – more than twice as long as the recommended 14-day isolation period” helps to explain why this beast will spread rapidly here in America and is likely already doing so. 

Patients sickened with coronavirus may be infectious for up to five weeks after they first fall ill, a new study has found.

Researchers from China discovered that people could live with virus in their respiratory tracts for as long as 37 days. That’s 2.5 times as long as the mandatory two-week isolation period required by most healthcare experts.

It comes on the heels of the World Health Organization finally declaring the global outbreak to be a pandemic on Wednesday.


For the study, published in The Lancet, 191 patients from two hospitals in Wuhan – the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak – were studied.

The team used electronic medical records to collect demographic data as well as laboratory data.

Researchers detected the RNA of the virus – which carries the genetic information – in respiratory samples from patients for a median of 20 days after they first becoming sick.

The shortest amount of time someone was infectious was eight days and the longest amount of time was 37 days.


With that study likely helping to explain why there may be up to 100,000 cases of undiagnosed coronavirus in the state of Ohio alone this very moment as reported in the Daily Mail due to so-called ‘community spread’ with only 5 people officially diagnosed with coronavirus in the state, if those numbers are repeated from state to state across America, there could be millions of Americans walking around with coronavirus already, completely undiagnosed, and spreading it to others to ‘wash, rinse and repeat’ the hellish cycle. 

Ohio has estimated it has more than 100,000 undiagnosed cases of coronavirus, after the virus was detected in people that had not traveled to affected areas.

The state’s director of health, Dr Amy Acton, who is also a licensed physician, warned the virus was moving through the population via ‘community spread’ as state governors moved to close all schools from Kindergaten to K-12 on Monday.

The northern state, which has a population of 11.7 million, has only reported five cases of COVID-19 so far. Two have contracted the virus via ‘community spread’.

Warning of the rapid spread of the disease from the Ohio General Assembly in Columbus yesterday, Dr Acton said: ‘I know it is hard to understand COVID-19 since we can’t see it, but we know that one per cent of our population is carrying this virus today. That’s more than 100,000 people.’

With the so-called ‘super rich’ now bugging out to their disaster bunkers as the Guardian reports in this new story hopefully giving a hint to those who think that COVID-19 is only a ‘hoax’ to usher in medical tyranny here in America that it is something real that we should prepare for, we still can’t overlook the possibility that this ‘outbreak’ will be used by tyrants to usher in global martial law.

And with potentially large parts of America to be completely locked down in the days ahead, including confirmed reports of all public schools here in the state of Maryland as well as those in Ohio and Michigan being shut down, it’s long been warned that when the ‘elite’ begin to ‘bug out’, it’s time for those who haven’t been paying attention to wake up because time is running out. And now, the ‘elite’ are ‘bugging out’. From the Guardian.: 

Like hundreds of thousands of people across the world, the super-rich are preparing to self-isolate in the face of an escalation in the coronavirus crisis. But their plans extend far beyond stocking up on hand sanitiser and TV boxsets.

The world’s richest people are chartering private jets to set off for holiday homes or specially prepared disaster bunkers in countries that, so far, appear to have avoided the worst of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Many are understood to be taking personal doctors or nurses on their flights to treat them and their families in the event that they become infected. The wealthy are also besieging doctors in private clinics in Harley Street, London, and across the world, demanding private coronavirus tests.

Robert Vicino, founder and chief executive of Vivos Group, a California-based company constructing underground shelters designed to withstand a range of natural disasters and catastrophes, said his firm had seen a surge in inquiries and sales since the crisis took hold.

Vivos has converted a a cold war bunker in Indiana into accommodation for 80 people, and is offering space in 575 concrete bunkers in an abandoned second world war ordnance depot in South Dakota.


So while most of us aren’t able to jet off to our disaster bunkers in some far away places, far from the unfolding madness, we’re still able to buckle in for a bumpy ride ahead and while New York governor Andrew Cuomo recently banned gatherings of 500 or more people in New York in an attempt to cut the spread of this  beast in the state of New York, that still potentially puts 10’s of millions in New York in the ‘line of fire’ of coronavirus as, should only 1 person in that gathering of 499 people be positive for the virus, it’s likely to spread much further anyways. 

As this shocking new story over at the Daily Mail reports, while only 5 people in the state of Ohio had been officially diagnosed with coronavirus, doctors believe over 100,000 Ohio residents might be infected with the disease via community transmission, having no idea what-so-ever they’ve been infected, yet contagious to others. 

How many more such situations are going on now here in America? Please join us in prayer for the people of America.

Globalists Look To Exploit Coronavirus In Push For Global Government

By Brandon Smith/Activist Post February 24, 2020

Once you understand the globalist mindset, almost everything they do becomes rather robotic and predictable.  It should not be surprising that the World Health Organization (WHO), a branch of the United Nations, has been so aggressive in cheerleading for the Chinese government and its response to the coronavirus outbreak.

After all, China’s communist surveillance state model is a beta test for the type of centralization that the UN wants for the entire planet. They certainly aren’t going to point out that it was China’s totalitarian system that allowed the outbreak to spread from the very beginning.

Even now Xi Jinping is trying to rewrite history, claiming that he had been swift in responding to the crisis more than a month before he actually did.  The lie that the coronavirus mutated naturally in a food and animal market in Wuhan continues to be peddled by the mainstream media even though no evidence supporting this claim exists.  

And China is still releasing rigged death and infection numbers while they have over 600 million people under martial law lockdown and their crematoriums continue pumping out the fumes of the dead 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Brave health workers like Li Wenliang, who was punished by the government for warning about the virus in December, have died in the process of trying to fight against the centralized behemoth just to get vital information to the world, but that never happened, right? 

It was actually president Xi and the CPC that saved the day. The WHO and the CPC say so. You’ll never hear the UN praise the efforts of Li Wenliang; they want his name to disappear down the memory hole as much as the Chinese government does.

The developing narrative is a familiar one – Local officials “stifled” the response to the outbreak while the centralized national leadership put things back on track with extreme control measures that have turned the Hubei province into a veritable internment camp. 

Whatever you do, don’t point out that it was the national government’s habit of imprisoning health officials that release “false information” that led to the delayed reaction on the coronavirus. 

Also, don’t point out that ground zero for the outbreak is just down the road from the largest Level 4 Biohazard Lab in Asia, because that would make you a “conspiracy theorist”.

The message being pounded into the public consciousness is clear: “Shut up and accept that Centralization works”. Even when it fails miserably, it is still the answer to all our problems. All we have to do is “adjust” the historical record a little bit every time the system breaks and then institute even MORE centralization in response.

In other words, if the interdependent and draconian top-down structure of the globalist state leads to crisis, then it is because it was not centralized ENOUGH. Centralization always begets more centralization.

The financial fascist system of central banking and corporate oligarchy leads to the socialist welfare state, and the socialist welfare state leads to the surveillance state, the surveillance state leads to the martial law state, and the martial law state leads to full-on global governance; an endless elitist empire.

The failings of centralization have caused numerous problems long before it led to a potential pandemic. The pandemic simply clarifies the issue. For example, the breakdown in the global supply chain is becoming a bigger threat by the day.  The Baltic Dry Index a measure of shipping rates as well as global demand for goods, has essentially collapsed.  

This should have been the first warning sign that the supply chain was in trouble, but the mainstream doesn’t pay attention to the fundamentals, only stock markets.  Enter Apple, one of the largest companies in the world, which has now abandoned its projections for 2020 and finally admitted that the shutdown of Chinese factories may just be a problem. 

Some mentally challenged people out there are scoffing sarcastically at this issue, saying “Oh no, whatever will we do without iPhones…?”.  They don’t grasp the wider implications.  If Apple’s production is going down because of the supply chain disruption then this is a signal that multiple companies and most of the economy are also going down because of supply chain disruptions. It’s not about iPhones, it’s about the bigger picture.

Globalism has led to interdependent economies and nation states that no longer have redundancies in production. We have been forced to rely on production centers on the other side of the world for a vast majority of our goods.

When China shuts down, the US economy loses almost 20% of its supply chain. When Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Vietnam shut down from the virus, you can add another 10% to 15% on top of that. Retailers in the US represent around 70% of GDP. Cut off the supply chain in Asia and retailers lose a vast array of goods to sell. The US economy eventually shuts down also, even if the virus never spreads here.

Some people will argue that we don’t need all the “cheap plastic crap” from Asia anyway, and this situation is a “good thing”. Sorry to break it to you, but America’s economy is built on the selling of cheap plastic crap (along with the selling of the fiat dollar as the world reserve currency). 

Walmart (Chinamart if you discount agricultural products) is the largest employer in the US and the world, after all. Right or wrong, our economic system is so globalized that the fall of the Chinese dominoes will eventually knock down our own dominoes.

But when this disaster occurs and numerous national economies suffer from enforced globalist integration, guess what will happen next? The globalists will ride to our “rescue” with even greater centralization. This was their agenda all along.

Many people in the liberty movement are now aware of the Event 201 simulation, a war game run by globalists in the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum on a “theoretical” coronavirus pandemic that kills 65 million people. 

This simulation took place only a couple of months before the real thing exploded in China in December. But hey, maybe that’s all just amazing coincidence. 

What concerns me even more is the solution that was presented at the end of Event 201 – the creation of a centralized global financial body that would manage the international response to the outbreak.

Isn’t it amazing how every major catastrophe caused by globalism seems to lead to more globalism? One might start to wonder if some of these events were triggered by incompetence, or if they were deliberately engineered. 

At the very least, crisis events have been allowed to fester unchecked by organizations like the WHO as they continue to write off the coronavirus as a non-issue that is “well under control” by a Chinese government that caused it to spread in the first place.

So here is what is going to happen next:

Best case scenario is that the Western world is mostly unscathed by the virus itself but the economic supply chain suffers major setbacks. The global economy, which was already crashing over the past year due to historic levels of corporate and consumer debt, not to mention faltering exports and freight, is finally tipped over the edge. 

The massive Everything Bubble, fueled by a decade of inflationary central bank stimulus, implodes. Governments respond with totalitarian measures in the name of “protecting the public”.

Globalist institutions like the IMF step in and suggest that frail national monetary systems come under the management of their Special Drawing Rights basket in order to mitigate the debt crisis. Essentially, this is the first step to global governance.

Worst case scenario, the virus spreads throughout the US and Europe and governments respond the same way China’s government has; martial law and full-blown concentration camp culture. This would lead to civil war in the US because we are armed and many people will shoot anyone trying to put us into quarantine camps. Europe is mostly screwed.

The establishment then suggests that paper money be removed from the system because it is a viral spreader. China is already pushing this solution now. Magically, we find ourselves in a cashless society in a matter of a year or two; which is what the globalists have been demanding for years. Everything goes digital, and thus even local economies become completely centralized as private trade dies.

Again, this might be an engineered event, or it might simply be that the globalists are exploiting a natural outbreak. Either way, they are not going to let a good crisis go to waste. Whether or not they succeed is dependent on several factors, but mostly, its dependent on us. 

How many people will buy into the notion that centralization is the answer to out problems? How many people will realize that centralization is the CAUSE of all our problems? And how many people will fight to prevent ultimate centralization under a psychopathic globalist cult?

A viral outbreak is a significant danger to us all, but an even greater threat is the supposed cure. Trading our economic and social freedom in the name of stopping the coronavirus?  No matter how deadly the bug, it’s just not worth it.
