7.1 Quake Rocks SoCal, Searles Valley
Hit Hard For Second Time In 24 Hours

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 7/6/2019 6:37:51 AM

A 7.1 quake rocked Southern California Friday evening. The quake struck at 8:21 p.m. KCAL9 anchor Sara Donchey held co-anchor Juan Fernandez’ arm as she steadied herself before ducking under her desk. He, meanwhile, reported feeling nauseous about the quake that felt like it wasn’t going to stop. Friday’s 7.1 and Thursday’s 6.4 both had epicenters near the community of Ridgecrest. The Thursday quake was already the biggest to hit Southern California in 20 years. The quake Friday evening obliterated that mark.

Californians who claim they want to pull away from the United States and be separate, may want to rethink that.

Sorry for the second post, but one of the posters reminded me of something I read recently....'The Harbinger' by Johnathon Cahn...I do believe he is a modern day prophet...in the book, he makes a tenative explanation of why we are being beset by so many storms, so much heat, wildfires, earthquakes...basically, we are becoming an 'apostate' society...and since 9/11 he has removed his protection from this country...believe it or not, at your peril...

The notion that this is God’s punishment is sick. That means that all those hurricanes, all those floods, all those tornados and all the other weather events are punishments. Not my God. The area where these quakes are hitting is mostly wide open desert. Those few who choose to live there are mostly retirees, some very old. They like it because it is inexpensive and quiet. Going on these disaster threads with California hate is what I believe God would not approve of...

Everyone has known - - for hundreds of years - - that California is as dangerous as it is beautiful. If you choose to live there - - you're taking your chances. But - - please don't come crying to me when an earthquake collapses your house which is sitting near a fault line. You knew the odds - - you took the gamble. Now live with it.

They showed water sloshing out of swimming pools more than 100 miles away from the quake. Scary stuff. So far no serious injuries or deaths.

On a much larger scale, the island of Thera had a seriously big earthquake that everybody thought was the main event ... up until the time that most of the island blew up. If I remember correctly, both events were preceded by less earthquakes. And I can't remember any reporting in the past had a significant earthquake shortly followed by a more serious earthquake. So, is SoCal on a Thera trajectory?

I felt it down here in San Juan Capistrano again. Not a much as the first one. I live in a mobile home and it usually detects when an quake happens. These 2 were far enough away as to not effect us much down here. The first one was a gentle roll. the second I hardly noticed. If we feel it 200 mils away it must have rolled pretty well up at the center.

Thank you fellow Californian, #7! Bravo! Sick comments about wishing us here in CA death and destruction are disgusting. It’s the kind of garbage that makes we want to cut L.Com out of my life. What the heck is wrong with some of you? None of us wish natural disasters upon you! And where you live probably has more disaster on a regular basis than we ever do here in CA. I suggest a little self reflection and prayer to God to rid you of your evil thoughts. Shame on you.

My son lives in California. With apologies to other good people who live there or have family/friends there, I cannot find it within myself to feel much for people who have rejected my country, my values, my way of life, and my God so thoroughly. I can and will pray for their safety, but ultimately they will need to find their own help.

Thanks to #12, I feel sorry for those empty persons who cannot find compassion for those who have suffered a disaster, in this case the small, closely-knit, largely Conservative little communities where these earthquakes are occurring. They are helping each other. True Americans. I don’t understand the kind who wish fellow Americans ill just because of politics. And their ignorance of the great numbers of Californians who do not support the Dem regime is appalling. My gutsy 90 year old relative - who has lived in Ridgecrest for all of her married life, her husband a Naval officer attached to the China Lake base - slept last night outside. She has more Christianity in her little finger than many do in their entire bodies. They make me sick!

For those seeing omens or just out to punish on a fine Saturday morning: [...]there is no credible connection between bad things happening in the natural world – like an earthquake – and bad things being done in the human world. The connections people make are invented. At its best, this is because when something terrible happens we look desperately for a reason, an explanation that assures us that somehow God is in control. At its worst, it's because people use natural disasters to promote their own political and theological agenda. The one is excusable; the other isn't. (Snip) In Luke 13:1-5, Jesus tells his followers about two tragedies, one a massacre of Galileans by Pilate, another the collapse of a tower which killed 18 people. His point is that they weren't singled out because they were worse than anyone else: they died because they were mortal. And, he says, "Unless you repent, you too will all perish": everyone is under judgment and everyone is vulnerable, so everyone should turn to God in repentance and faith. If these natural disasters tell us anything beyond the obvious – build your houses earthquake-proof, invest in tsunami early warning systems, keep your flood defences in good repair – it's that life is terribly fragile and we can't assume that tomorrow is going to be like today. Each of us needs to live prepared to face God at any time, ready to give an account of how we are using the time we have been given.   https://www.christiantoday.com/article/is-an-earthquake-really-a-sign-of-gods-wrath/100006.htm Wishing one's fellow AMERICANS ill on public forums, or inventing fables about how they are evil and being punished by God, is a pathetic use of the time one has been given.

Gov Nuisance Pretty Boy has already asked for a presidential emergency declaration so he can apply for federal assistance. Trump will graciously approve. Once the documents have been signed, Nuisance will continue trashing the president. Perhaps Trump should attach some strings, like once you accept federal funds it requires you to resign from office.

TQ, Dr. Lucy Jones, the Caltech seismologist who has been manning the airways since forever, gave an excellent explanation last night after this latest quake.. First, quakes do not hit a point. They go for the length of a fault. The faults that are active in Searles Valley/Ridgecrest area are part of a group known at the Little Lake Cluster. There are a number of small faults in this cluster. Lucy went on to say that the epicenter is not the focal point of the quake. It is the place on the fault where the movement began and the movement then went along the length of the particular fault. She illustrated by starting to tear a piece of paper. The place where she started to tear represented the epicenter. But she continued to tear to illustrate how a quake moves. She said that the pattern they are seeing tells them these quakes are moving to the NW. She estimated the length of this particular fault to be about 25 miles. But she also said that quakes in this cluster of small faults do not represent a threat to other faults as “it doesn’t work that way” … That jibes with this native’s experience in Southern California. Two quakes like these within numerous other smaller quakes on the same fault were not that unusual.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, running for president once again, told a gathering in Iowa Thursday that ever since the nation's founding, presidents and patriots have marked the Fourth of July by reflecting on the "greater meaning" of "this American experiment." Biden quoted a few of America's most famous presidents, praising their pursuit of "liberty," then he turned to the current occupant of the White House: You know, what I wonder -- what will Donald Trump say this evening?

National Public Radio (NPR) turned to Never Trump pundit Jonah Goldberg on Friday morning to explain the implications of the decision this week by Rep. Justin Amash to leave the Republican Party. Goldberg told Morning Edition‘s Steve Inskeep that Amash’s departure was “a sign of many of the symptoms he’s talking about,” including the increased partisanship of American politics — which, Goldberg argued, was ironically a result of the weakening of the traditional parties in the face of challenges by outsiders like Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Amash, he said, reacting to the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which did not fit into the GOP’s partisan paradigm.

Job creation reignited in June, with nonfarm payrolls rising 224,000 and unemployment ticking up to 3.7 percent. The June number will be closely watched after a surprisingly poor showing in May, when the U.S. economy was initially reported to have added just 75,000 jobs. That number was revised even lower on Friday, to just 72,000. April’s number was revised down to 216,000 from 224,000. Economists surveyed by Econoday had been looking for a gain of 165,000 for June and for unemployment to remain steady at 3.6 percent. The June number will also be looked to as a barometer for the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy. Last month,

Iran’s president warned that Tehran will increase its enrichment of uranium to “any amount that we want” beginning on Sunday, putting further pressure on European nations to save its faltering nuclear deal and offer a way around intense U.S. sanctions. President Hassan Rouhani’s threat, combined with Iran surpassing the stockpile limits of the 2015 atomic accord, could narrow the estimated one-year window it would need to produce enough material for a nuclear weapon, something Iran denies it wants but the deal sought to prevent. But as tensions rise a year after President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew America from the deal, it looks unlikely that

uesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh argued that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s opposition to Nike’s so-called Betsy Ross footwear was proof Kaepernick’s kneeling was not about alleged police brutality but animosity toward the American flag. Nike pulled the product line based on Kaepernick’s opposition, which came because the footwear featured the Betsy Ross flag. Partial transcript as follows (courtesy RushLimbaugh.com): The Washington media-political complex, if you will, authors the daily script. It’s one-sided. How does Nike let one person sway them into ditching an entirely already-made shoe, featuring — by the way — a flag designed by Betsy Ross.

Toilet paper – the one product that the majority of us use just once and flush away – is becoming less sustainable, according to research.

Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested for allegedly sex trafficking minors in Florida and New York from 2002 to 2005. The 66-year-old registered sex offender faces federal sex trafficking charges and is due to appear in court in New York on Monday. He was taken into custody by the FBI on Saturday after landing in New York following an overseas flight. Epstein's arrest comes after a New York federal appeals court ordered last week the release of 2,000 pages of judicial documents related to Epstein and his partner Ghislaine Maxwell, who are suspected of taking part in an international sex trafficking operation.
