Generational Signs Continue To Escalate: Quakes, Rumors Of War, Coming Totalitarianism

The Big Wobble : The third major quake of April....A mag 6.0 - 100km NNE of Chignik Lake, Alaska

We have another major quake, the third in just over 24 hours...

A mag 6.0 - 100km NNE of Chignik Lake, Alaska, it was originally shown as a 6.2 on USGS but was downsized, which appears to happen to almost every major quake recently, a fact that is shared be a visitor who wrote into TBW.

1)When you watch the reporting of earthquakes, the USGS consistently downgrades them from the original magnitude, and is almost always the lowest number "reported" that is then recorded thereby creating the official record.

2) There are documented cases of earthquakes happening, being reported, and then being removed from the official record.

3) John Moore, a radio talk host in the US, has stated many times that in the 1980's the Richter Scale itself was lower by one full magnitude (an 8 was now measured as a 7).I have searched but not yet found verifying information. If any of the above is correct, then it means the US Government through the USGS is manipulating the data to show the "magnitude" and "number" of Earthquakes are lower than actually are. I think any observant person watching will verify the the US Government has a horrendous track record of manipulating data to support their agenda. All this "implies" the data is tainted to reflect a less dramatic case than actually exists. J.C. BTW - one of my degrees is in Geology.

This mornings major quake is the third already in April, remember we only had five the entire month of March, it is the 31st major quake of 2016.

Sakurajima volcano erupted in southern Japan Friday morning, causing its highest ash cloud in almost a year. 
After a busy March of mini-eruptions, the plume soared higher than it’s been since May 2015, providing brilliant images for lucky onlookers who weren’t downwind of the belching mountain.
Sakurajima overlooks the seaside city of Kagoshima on Japan’s Kyushu Island. It’s regularly monitored due its close proximity with the Sendai nuclear plant, which is 50km (30 miles) away.

Hiram Maxim, the inventor of the machine gun, declared, “Only a general who was a barbarian would send his men to certain death against the concentrated power of my new gun.” But send them they did. In World War One, the machine gun often mowed down tens of thousands of men in a single day.
Orville Wright saw a similar vision: “When my brother and I built and flew the first man-carrying flying machine, we thought we were introducing into the world an invention that would make further wars practically impossible.” Far from ending war, however, the airplane increased the ability to maim and kill. In firebombing raids on London, Hamburg and Tokyo the airplane wrought previously unimaginable levels of destruction. In a single night, March 9, 1945, 25 percent of Tokyo was destroyed, 80,000 people were killed, and over 1 million left homeless.
History shows the folly in hoping that each new, more destructive weapon will not be used. And yet we dare to hope that this time it will be different. We and the Soviets have amassed a combined arsenal of 50,000 nuclear weapons, equivalent in destructive force to some 6,000 World War II’s, capable of reaching their targets in a matter of minutes, and able to destroy every major city in the world. All in the belief that they will never be used.

We have pulled the trigger in this macabre game more often than is imagined. Each action on our current path has some chance of triggering the final global war. And if we keep pulling the trigger, the gun will inevitably go off. Each “small” war — in Iran, or Iraq, or Vietnam, or Afghanistan — is pulling the trigger; each threat of the use of violence — as in the Cuban missile crisis — is pulling the trigger; each day that goes by in which a missile or computer can fail is pulling the trigger.

As weapons of mass destruction proliferate to ever more nations, the nuclear equation becomes more complex and dangerous. Non-nuclear nations that fear confrontation with stronger powers will be strongly motivated to develop nuclear arsenals.

North Korea’s state-run publication DPRK Today said their attacks on the U.S. mainland will do more damage than the September 11 attacks, in an article published on Friday.
The editorial claimed that North Korea’s destructive weapons are all aimed at the White House, the Pentagon and all other locations from which Washington can launch a military operation.
“If three civilian airplanes’ attacks from 15 years ago resulted in 3,000 deaths and brought a nightmare to life for the U.S., the outbreak of our final war will wipe the country from history, leaving no time (for them to) even regret or have nightmares about it,” read the bulletin.
The article claimed that the U.S. is “flabbergasted” by the announcement of a final showdown in which North Korea carries out pre-emptive nuclear strikes on the U.S. mainland.
“Being beaten by only three civilian airplanes, the U.S. was ashamed in front of the world and has suffered incalculable psychological and economical damage,” it said.
“The most powerful, miniaturized, diversified weapon systems of Chosun (North Korea’s name for itself) are aimed at the U.S. imperialists’ war commands including the White House and the Pentagon, from the ground, in the air and underwater,” it read.

The report claimed that the U.S.’s Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system will do no good against their weapons.
“Will you (the U.S.) be gone from the face of the Earth trying to stop Chosun’s attacks with the shameful THAAD? Or will you kneel before us and save your life? The time has come, and the U.S. must make the choice,” it said.
This is not the first time that the North vowed to carry out a nuclear strike on the U.S.
About two weeks ago, the country threatened to carry out pre-emptive strikes on the U.S. mainland, claiming their bomb is advanced enough to carry out a strike on New York City – and as powerful as theTsar Bomba – and will wipe out its entire populace.
Five days prior to threat of the New York City attack, North Korea published pictures of a supposedly “miniaturized” nuclear device, in addition to publicising further tests of rocket engines and ballistic re-entry technology.

 While the global warming alarmists have done a good job of spreading fright, they haven’t been so good at hiding their real motivation. Yet another one has slipped up and revealed the catalyst driving the climate scare.
We have been told now for almost three decades that man has to change his ways or his fossil-fuel emissions will scorch Earth with catastrophic warming. Scientists, politicians and activists have maintained the narrative that their concern is only about caring for our planet and its inhabitants. But this is simply not true. The narrative is a ruse. They are after something entirely different.
If they were honest, the climate alarmists would admit that they are not working feverishly to hold down global temperatures — they would acknowledge that they are instead consumed with the goal of holding down capitalism and establishing a global welfare state.
Have doubts? Then listen to the words of former United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer:
“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.
So what is the goal of environmental policy?

“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,” said Edenhofer.

For those who want to believe that maybe Edenhofer just misspoke and doesn’t really mean that, consider that a little more than five years ago he also said that “the next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.”
Mad as they are, Edenhofer’s comments are nevertheless consistent with other alarmists who have spilled the movement’s dirty secret. Last year, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, made a similar statement.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said in anticipation of last year’s Paris climate summit.
“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
The plan is to allow Third World countries to emit as much carbon dioxide as they wish — because, as Edenhofer said, “in order to get rich one has to burn coal, oil or gas” — while at the same time restricting emissions in advanced nations. This will, of course, choke economic growth in developed nations, but they deserve that fate as they “have basically expropriated the atmosphere of the world community,” he said. The fanaticism runs so deep that one professor has even suggested that we need to plunge ourselves into a depression to fight global warming.
Perhaps Naomi Klein summed up best what the warming the fuss is all about in her book “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.”
“What if global warming isn’t only a crisis?” Klein asks in a preview of a documentary inspired by her book. “What if it’s the best chance we’re ever going to get to build a better world?”
In her mind, the world has to “change, or be changed” because an “economic system” — meaning free-market capitalism — has caused environmental “wreckage.”
This is how the global warming alarmist community thinks. It wants to frighten, intimidate and then assume command. It needs a “crisis” to take advantage of, a hobgoblin to menace the people, so that they will beg for protection from the imaginary threat. The alarmists’ “better world” is one in which they rule a global welfare state. They’ve admitted this themselves.

First of all, forget the ‘60s. This situation has been brewing for over 100 years. I was born into a working-class socialist family in New Zealand in 1960. Democratic socialism had been established by popular reforms in the 1930s. By the late ‘50s, almost every working-class child in New Zealand was raised socialist.
But we didn't call it socialism. We called it "workers' rights.” In my family, my older siblings and I were the third generation of socialists. We never chose socialism, we inherited it. In the late ‘60s, the younger middle-class joined us.
It is especially in the British Commonwealth that millions have been raised by leftists, who were raised by leftists, who were raised by leftists, and so on. Some leftist families have been so for more than a century. They consider themselves leftist royalty.
For the millions raised as leftists, it is not an ideology; it is a culture. Since childhood, they have lived and breathed it every day in the home. They know nothing else. Like any culture, it is a way of speaking, thinking and acting, with its own narratives and rituals. Narratives are held sacred, repeated, reinforced and, over time, added to. That which challenges sacred narratives, even reality itself, is met with confusion and hostility. As with any aggressive, intolerant culture, if you enter it, it enters you.

Contrary to opinion, leftism isn't just about hate. Leftists are more complex than that. From my time as a red diaper leftist, I can tell you that a whole range of emotions are involved. Hate, anger, fear, bitterness, jealousy, envy, rage, greed, pride, smugness and paranoia (not technically an emotion, but it is widespread among leftists).
With such a parade of negative emotions, it is no surprise that so many leftists suffer from chronic depression, often from a young age. Even if they lose the anger, they still retain the attitude: that the government must fix everyone’s problems, regardless of cost and that there is an enormous right-wing conspiracy that is just around the corner.

The victim narrative of the Left is very infectious. You are always the victim and you are always owed something. The wealthy are always evil, while you are always good and wholesome. Converts are often more intense than those born into it. My father, raised a leftist, eventually mellowed and began to question some leftist beliefs. My mother, not raised a leftist, but having become one, never mellowed.
The victim narrative was in every conversation.
The class struggle/oppressed victim narrative is part of daily life on the Left. As a child, I would listen to adults talking. With friends and co-workers, with mothers chatting over tea, it was part of every conversation. They would talk about the weather, their kids, television, but before parting, one of them would always say something relating to the greedy oppression of the rich -- and the other had to agree. To not agree was social suicide.
While there were differences between working-class and middle-class leftists, certain attitudes were universal:
When a leftist has never worked, they feel very generous toward anyone who claims to need help, who fits the narrative. They are generous with their emotions.
 When they do get their first real job, they are often shocked by the amount of taxes withheld and have a moment of doubt. But this moment of doubt gives non-leftists an opening. So the young leftist, terrified he/she will be changed, quickly walls off this doubt in their mind and refuses to touch it, until it fades.
Economics are not usually considered part of a culture, but for red-diaper leftists, their attitude to economics is cultural. It is part of the core, sacred narrative. 
They usually have a child-like view of economics, which they often have inherited from their parents. This is probably why the doubt triggered by their first tax shock is so easily forgotten for leftists. The child-like view is comfortable and familiar. Once amnesia sets in and comfort returns, discussions of economic reality are seen as right-wing propaganda.
Leftists hear big numbers and picture Scrooge McDuck’s money bin, not infrastructure, maintenance, specialized equipment, transportation, training, payrolls, etc. 
For leftists, industry has so much money. Businesses make huge profits. The price of everything is too high. The government has billions. They want to keep it all for themselves and their rich friends. So leftists believe that these evil people must be made to spend the money on things the leftists themselves choose.
Leftists combine child-like naïveté and paranoid aggression in all of their narratives. It is a remarkable and very damaging pairing. The child-like naïveté protects the narrative from facts while the paranoid aggression protects the mind from doubt. For red-diaper babies, this thinking competes with their normal emotional and intellectual development, causing an internal struggle that can go either way.
In the same family, one child may be a mellow, half-hearted leftist while another is a dedicated communist. The one who feels the greatest need to please the parents will probably be the dedicated communist. The Left, on the surface, may look to some like a movement of young misfits, but it is old, huge and culturally entrenched, not just in Europe, but also in most of the English-speaking nations. Leftism is a family history, a cultural mindset and a way of life for millions of households. It is a set of core sacred narratives and daily conversations.
Children inherit leftism as a belief system, knowing nothing else. By the time that they are old enough to hear other points of view, they are indoctrinated. It has become their moral compass.
Leftism encourages and is driven by the most negative, damaging emotions. It harnesses together childish emotions and paranoid thought processes. Its narratives are a filter that reality has to try to struggle through, often failing.
The child-like thinking solves all problems without pesky details and facts interfering, leading to delusions of intellectual brilliance.
It is actually very hard to give up being a leftist, even when you want to. I know people whose families have been murdered by communists and they are still leftists. It is not enough to see the problems. If you are a red-diaper baby, it’s all you know. You have been indoctrinated (with the media’s help) that the so-called Right is greedy and evil and the religious are hypocritical and delusional. Even if you have doubts, there is nowhere else to go, not without literally changing your mind.
I saw the cracks early. My parents had a fanatical hatred of the middle class and never spoke to them, if possible.  In my teens I realized my father hated the wealthy because he wasn’t one. That didn’t stop me being a leftist. It made me want to be a better leftist than my parents. I began to see that class struggle was becoming a scam to get more free stuff. I still sought a perfect form of communism. I met upper middle class leftists and was appalled by their arrogance and snobbery.  I traveled the world and did not find any form of communism that did not depend on capitalism to save it from collapse.
Returning home, I had daily conversations with a Jewish doctor who was pro-life. Every day we discussed morals and faith. I began to understand the concept of faith, moral absolutes and self-sacrifice; all new to me.  A few weeks later, God spoke to me.
I tried to be a Christian and a moderate leftist. I wasn’t alone. Moderate leftists do not think of themselves as leftists. They think of themselves as balanced and reasonable. I worked with refugees and they told me about the torture, slavery and mass murder of the communist “freedom fighters.” This killed any lingering sentiment regarding communism.
I married a refugee and she tried to stab me. I also found that the refugees had very dark secrets. My feel-good multiculturalism slowly died. I began to see the strength of Judeo-Christian civilization. I saw the dishonesty and viciousness of the Marxist-Feminists, who had taken over the Left. The feminism my mother had stuffed down my throat every day had died. When I argued with leftists, their near-psychotic rage shocked me. I felt I was talking to lunatics.
Despite all this, it is hard to totally leave leftist thinking because it surrounds you. It has become mainstream. It’s like trying to bail a boat with holes in the bottom. It takes a persistent intellectual effort to leave it behind.  But there is another reason why it takes time to dig out the leftist brain parasite. A powerful lie lives there.  It is the most powerful lie they have. It is that the Left “cares.” You must fully embrace the fact that this is a lie. All leftist “caring” has a hidden agenda.

The above article reminded of a saying I've heard for many years. I believe it was from Churchill. It goes something like this..."If you're under 20 years old and aren't a liberal, you have no heart. If you're over 30 and are a liberal, you have no brains."

Scott, the article you reproduced above is absolutely the best description of a leftie I've ever seen. So pathetically true. That was downright instructional and insightful.

You gotta feel sorry for them....until remembering how many millions they've murdered. And they'll do the same to you and me, given a chance when we won't see things their way.
