The New York Earthquake and President Bush (Major repercussions ahead for U.S?)
Koenig's International News ^ | 4/21/02 | Bill Koenig

Posted on 04/22/2002 6:52:05 AM PDT by truthandlife

In the book that John McTernan and I have written, “Israel: The Blessing or the Curse”, we identified 34 significant same day events when the United States pushed on Israel to give up her covenant land or made major public statements pertaining to the covenant land of Israel. These events included hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, major stock market corrections, tropical storms and other events. These were some of the largest and most significant in U.S. history.

Yesterday, as President Bush’s weekend radio address (included below) was about to be aired nationwide on the U.S. battle on terrorism and his vision of a solution for the Israeli-Palestinian situation a very rare 5.1 magnitude earthquake was felt from Buffalo, New York, to Boston, Massachusetts and Baltimore, Maryland. Interestingly, the epicenter was 50 miles from Saranac Lake where President Bush will be delivering an Earth Day message tomorrow, Monday, April 22, at 12:30 PM. (The address also came on the heals of U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft FBI terrorism warning to 1200 Northeastern banks that spread from Virginia to Maine. )

The 5.1 earthquake did not cause major property damage because of its remote epicenter but it could be considered another warning sign as the U.S. continues its direct involvement in the “land for peace” talks in Israel. In the past the intensity increases significantly when the U.S. firmly pressures Israel to comply; President Bush has stated his position pertaining to God’s covenant land but has not exerted pressure on Israel.

There were five large simultaneous events in 2002 from March 31 to October 2. They are as follows:

On March 31, a Chinese jet bumps into a U.S. recognizance plane forcing it to make an emergency landing, this occurred as Egypt‘s President Hosni Mubarek was arriving in Washington followed two days later by Jordan’s King Abdullah II. Their visit was an attempt to convince President Bush to become more active in the Middle East talks. The day after King Abdullah II left Washington the American crew was released.

On May 22, the day President Bush publicly endorsed the Mitchell Plan his Republican Party lost the majority in the Senate as Vermont Senator Jeffords announces his decision to leave the party. This has caused a legislative nightmare for the Republicans.

On June 8, CIA Director, George Tenet, convened a meeting in Ramallah between the Israelis and the Palestinians as Tropical Storm Allison, the largest rain producer in U.S. history, rains 28 inches in 24 hours in Houston, and 100 million cubic feet of rain throughout the U.S the next week.

On September 11, World Trade Center / Pentagon terror events occurred at the same time that the most compressive U.S. Middle East peace plan in history, was being completed to be shared with the Saudi Ambassador to the UN the next day in Washington, and given to the UN General Assembly twelve days later.

On October 2, President Bush declared that he was backing a Palestinian State. On the same day, the first Anthrax case in 25 years is contracted leading to a U.S. postal crisis that cost the U.S. government billions of dollars, loss of life and major disruption on Capitol Hill.

What is Next?

Today according to an Associated Press article the White House plans to stay the course and President Bush has charted his Middle East policy and is discouraging attempts by lawmakers to step into the conflict with legislation.

"The president has outlined a clear blueprint for the pathway to peace in the Middle East," and the administration has made progress. White House spokeswoman, Claire Buchan said. "We and the international community are focused on bringing the parties together."

In other words President Bush desires to be the main U.S. point man in the Israeli - Palestinian crisis. This will carry great weight with major potential repercussions if pressure is exerted on Israel.

As we go forward, based on past history, if President Bush decides to exert greater pressure on Israel to give up her covenant land then there will be major repercussions for the United States.

The big difference now compared to the past eleven years of U.S. involvement is the situation appears to have come to a head with no solution in sight. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak offered more than any other Israeli Prime Minister and that was turned down by Arafat. In reality there isn’t a current solution. So what is next?

The EU and the UN keep calling for peace monitors but the Bush Administration says only if both sides agree. If the United States wasn’t in place, things would get bad quickly in Israel.

We will be watching closely this Thursday when President Bush meets with the sponsor of the Saudi Plan, Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia in Crawford, Texas.

My tin-foil hat must need adjustment. What does one have to do with the other?

Stairway To Heaven
(Page/Plant)

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to THE WEST,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of THOSE WHO STAND LOOKING.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.


And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for THE MAY QUEEN.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The PIPER'S CALLING you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Are you for real? Maybe you ought to be posting that because of all that Bush has done, there have'nt been any Tornado Deaths in the U.S. so far this year.

The article is Nonsense.

Rattles, beads and voodoo dolls, Witch doctors and shamans - the libs all believe in fuzzy logic, fuzzy math, junk science and they can't shoot straight either.

MmeDefarge reveals that the earthquake is a sign from Heaven that Hillary will give up the run for the presidency and that she will retire from public life when it is reveled by Bill Clinton in sworn testimony at the divorce trial of his latest strumpet that Hillary is actually a hemaphrodite and is incapable of human attachment.

Don't forget the Storm of the Century that struck in March 1993 during the Davidian standoff at Waco. Those were true Judeo-Christian believers.

LOL...............the earthquake happened at 6:50 AM EST and the radio address was at 10:08 AM.

There were five large simultaneous events in 2002 from March 31 to October 2. They are as follows:

LOL............need I say more?

What is Next?

I was kinda wondering that myself Bill [Koeing]; I was about to read some more, to see how many other egregious mistakes you make, to support your "Chicken Little" philosophy.

But I've just snapped back to reality; I'd rather read real news stories. But thanks for the chuckles!

I woke up to my bed shaking and stuff rattling. It was really odd. I agree with much of what this guy has written in his book. The things that have happened in the US as a result of our interference in Israel are just too of a coincidence. The US needs to stay out of Israel and just be a friend and not a force trying to make Israel give up it's God-given land. They have a right to fight terrorism their own way, just as we do. God has a plan. We are not to force something to happen before its time. God's timing is always perfect. Ours isn't. God bless Israel and God bless America. We are co-joined by God for just a time like this. Let's not screw it up.

heh heh heh...

my parents were visiting my grandmother in Florida. I and a buddy from church were crashing in the house (with their permission, of course) after a conference.

I remarked that, now I had an excuse if I left the house a mess. I could say, without lying, that an earthquake hit it.

Something tells me the gag wouldnt have gone over so well if the house were really messy. It surely was quite funny when the limits of the mess were a few blankets, dirty coffee cups, and scattered (clean) laundry. heh heh hehg

yeah, I slept through it, too.

oh well, maybe we'll be awake for NY's "Big One".

it's weird to think that we have the largest fault line on the continent (although least active).

Anyone who's seen me here at FR for the last four or five years, knows that I have quite an assortment of tin foil hats.

That being said, how and where in the world is anything in the above article related to each other???

C'mon, there's so much more clear cut cooler information to get paranoid about, don't ruin it with this drivel!! (sarcasm)

Certainly in a huge system of systems with almost infinite complexity, subtlety can be barely detectable above the noise. . . which leaves plenty to conjecture . . . or faith or something . . . with the wise in their own eyes scoffing the loud guffaws. . . and the more childlike thinking quietly--hmmm, I see. . . . interesting.

God seems to be subtle unless and until He feels like making a dramatic declaration with rainbows or lightening bolts of a Roman leader instantly eaten of worms.

So far, He's not even warmed up yet. . . . but stay tuned. . . things will get more interesting and in clearer, more overt ways--especially if one truly wants to know and follow God.

Those hell-bent on puffing up their own god in their own mirror are likely to remain in the dark. . . . regardless of the dramatic demonstrations in front of their faces.

As one was told . . . if Moses himself came back from the dead, they still would not believe.

A high degree of free will requires a realtively high degree of ambiguity. Otherwise, free will relatively goes out the window with the ambiguity as certainty arises.

DO YOU REALLY, REALLY, REALLLLLLLLLLLY WANT TO BE FACED WITH THE UNDENIABLE EVIDENCE THAT GOD IS REAL AND DEMANDS YOUR TOTAL SUBMISSION?

I'd guess from your writings that that's the last thing you'd want. Quite a vested interest in avoiding evidence. . . . . and in distorting or minimizing what subtle evidence might be there so far.

Wow ! HEAVY , dude !!

By the way, does anyone know how to keep a moose from stealing cheese ?
It's been on my mind for a long time, but I've been kind of distracted by 911, the Mideast conflict, and worrying about whether Janet Reno really looks pretty in pink...

Matthew 10:16-18

"Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues. You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles."

You know, it occurs to me that the Catholic Church is getting "delivered up to councils" lately...
