    All of you that think this is some big joke are complete morons and heartless, guess it don't matter to any of you that men, women, and kids may be dead or awaiting their death because they have nowhere to go. It's only a matter of time before we Americans are shaken by a major natural disaster, I guess Katrina wasn't enough to phase anyone because you all went back to your old selves, good luck with that.

    Correction on my comment on the name of the EPA Division. It is the EPA Division of Climate Change. Climate Change the District of Columbia - it's really cold there.

    "You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places." (Matthew 24:5-7, Mark 13:5-8)

    Luke 21:11 says, "There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven."

    Luke 21:20, "When you see [the reborn] Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near."
    "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea."
    "At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near." (Luke 21:27-28)

    (Matthew 24:40-41) "Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left."

  13. HAARP

    ELF waves via HAARP transmitters and GWEN
    that make Earth's layers ring like a bell
    bot to mention that ALL of the latest quakes came from the same depth
    scalar waves manifesting as charged rainbows on the skies bere the quakes hit
    man made disasters to keep failing finacial system going little longer and help get rid of "useless eaters"
    all of that keeps the existing power structure in place

    yes, listen to the mainstream media that serves the power structure
    do not think for your self
    obey your masters
    calll those that are pointing what should be obvious "conspiracy theorists"
    stay with the program
    your government loves you
    even though the govermnens have killed 6 times more people than everything else combined

      God our Creator, who could control us should He choose to do so, gave us free will. Yet some men, in their conceit think they know better than God and try to control the lives of their fellow men. If these self-aggrandizing men truly cared about this world and the people in it, they should get on their knees, as should we all, and pray to God to do His will, not theirs.

    yes Helene
    you are correct

    some evil men do evil deeds yet good men do nothing to stop them.
    Instead, they pretend everything is OK, they rather listen to canned media propaganda than that voice inside them that knows that something is quite not right. But, evil can only flourish if good men do nothing. As E. Burke has said.
    Good people need to start doing something.

    another problem is that technology has advanced well beyond comprehension of general public.
    Just because people can use a remote control to turn power on their TV it does not mean that they understand the technology. They do not understand even basic principles of how sound and images are created, so how could they understand what ELF can do to humans and to the Earth itself? How can they comprehend that which is purposely
    kept away from their sphere of knowledge if the do NOT want to learn?
    How can they understand the real science that is hidden from them if all they know is to turn the TV on and listen to some paid hack to tell them lies because telling the lies and suppressing the truth is that hack's main job.
    how can they even begin to understand that the cure for cancer existed for decades, that free and clean energy existed for quite some time now and that advanced technologies and medical advances were and still are suppressed for many, many decades? How can they understand that someone wants them to burn that "fossil fuel" (fossil fuel is yet another lie) because their inefficient car engines (3 quarts of a gallon are wasted on each gallon of burend fuel) are making huge profit for oil industry and auto parts and service industry and this also creates DEPENDANCY?

    Powers To Be has always controlled the masses by limiting the knowledge of mass-people while advancing own knowledge.
    It always has been like that, the greater the knowledge gap between the ruling class and mass-people – greater the power to control mass-people.
    The ruling class either creates disasters purposely or exploits whatever can be exploited for advancement of their agenda.

    You can see how they are painting Khadafy as a monster that wants to poison his own people.
    You can see how they drive those ideas in order to advance their dirty anti-human agenda because they want to subjugate the whole Middle East.
    You can see how they use the fear as a weapon any chance they have.
    You can see how America has morphed into a police state within less than a decade.
    What will it take for people to wake up?
    When people are on knees licking the boots of their oppressors begging for mercy?

    People should do their homework, they need to learn about the real world that we live in, because only if sufficient masses wake up by first EDUCATING themselves can this insane machine of totalitarian system be stopped.
    So, instead of mocking those that expose the insanity of this totalitarian system by calling them "conspiracy theorists" - each person need to grow some backbone, face the facts and then join millions of other people that are already awakened so that all of us can stop this insane totalitarian prison that is almost completely built around us.
    Or, the Hell on Earth will ensue.

    That's why it think we are now fighting not flesh and blood but an evil that pervades men's minds and spreads across societies and countries. What can be achieved by subjugating humans other than to steal their free will and their souls.

    The perpetrators have cleverly come up with labels such as "conspiracy theories", "fearmongering", and so on and should anyone come to close to the truth. But we have been desensitized and become accepting of the injustices being heaped upon us. Is it out of our hands now to reclaim what God has given us?
