Isaiah 26:9

Here is John MC Ternan´s comentary on the world and Isaiah 26:9, it´s worth to read.

Isaiah 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
The LORD'S judgments are now throughout the earth. It appears that Japan as we knew it is coming to an end. The earthquake and related events could send the Japanese economy into a meltdown. This in turn will affect the world's economy. The LORD is going to bring down the world's economy. There appears no way out of this for Japan. Japan is drowning in debt and this is going to swamp the nation. The debt is going to radically increase along with a severe drop in tax revenue. Japan is in deep trouble. 
As I watch events in Japan, it is difficult to figure out what is really happening. The Japanese government is playing down the fires at the nuclear reactors while events  on the ground are showing a different story. Radioactivity was detected 200 miles at sea and also near Tokyo! It is possible that large areas of Japan may become radioactive! Each day this goes on, the possibility of a tremendous disaster grows.
Radiation fears lead to nuke pill demand in Seattle 03/14/11 These pills have disappeared as the public has bought them up. This is coming for all goods including food. Please do not delay but move now to store some food and supplies as the Lord leads you. In a matter of two days, the stores could be cleaned out and then it is too late. Now is the time to act and protect yourself and others.
At the same time, the volatility in the Arab countries continues. Bahrain is becoming a flash point between Iran and Saudi Arabia. The turmoil is this country is coming from the Shiites who support Iran. Saudi Arabia is supporting the Sunni government! Any turmoil in the Persian Gulf could spike the price of oil and send the word economy into a meltdown.
Either Japan or the Middle East going critical could radically affect the world economy and start of world depression. The LORD is being more and more pressure in the world as it is heading toward the breaking point. God wants His people physically and spiritually ready. To be spiritually ready, it takes growing closer to the Lord Jesus everyday. It means to live with the Blessed Hope in your heart. It means to stand on His word no matter what price has to be paid.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.hostgator coupon 2011

Republicans split, but House approves stopgap budget bill

The measure would cut $6 billion and stave off a government shutdown for three more weeks. Many Republicans vote against it, however, saying key policy objectives were ignored.

The GOP-led House approved a short-term spending bill Tuesday but only after dozens of Republicans rejected the measure, forcing party leaders to rely on Democrats to achieve passage and help skirt a threatened government shutdown.

The vote showed the mounting difficulty of resolving a budget stalemate that has consumed Washington for weeks. The Senate is expected to vote on the bill before Friday, when government funding to keep agencies operating runs out. But similar resistance from conservatives is expected in that chamber.

With House conservatives opposing their party's stopgap proposal as inadequate, the vote also signals trouble ahead for House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) as he negotiates a long-term deal with Democrats on behalf of a deeply split Republican caucus.

The White House, meanwhile, said it was time to resolve the budget impasse "in a sensible way."

Talks continue behind the scenes on a compromise that would keep the government running through the 2011 fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30.

As the two sides struggle, public opinion surveys have not given a decided advantage to either camp. Voters oppose a possible disruption of government services and would tend to blame Republicans more than Democrats. Yet surveys also show that many Americans credit congressional Republicans with taking a greater leadership role on the issue thanPresident Obama.

At the same time, Americans continue to trust the president more than Republicans in Congress to handle economic matters, according to one of the surveys, by the Washington Post and ABC News.

Boehner acknowledged the push-back from within his ranks, but said the GOP would have an additional opportunity to rein in deficits during the upcoming debate over raising the nation's debt ceiling.

The House voted 271 to 158 on the stopgap measure that would cut $6 billion over the next three weeks, largely by eliminating programs Obama had already identified for termination or reduction, as well as specially earmarked congressional projects.

Coupled with a temporary budget extension that the president signed March 2, Congress would have cut $10 billion in less than a month.

Still, 54 Republicans broke ranks to vote no Tuesday, saying the latest bill represented a timid version of the House-passed measure to cut more than $60 billion for the rest of the fiscal year. Only six House Republicans opposed the previous temporary budget extension.

The GOP defectors this time were mostly veteran conservatives who aligned with more than 20 conservative freshmen.

They were particularly upset that top policy priorities had been dropped from the bill. Shelved for now are attempts to defund the healthcare overhaul law enacted last year, gut Planned Parenthoodand eliminate the power of the Environmental Protection Agency.

"The time has come to take a stand," said Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).

Magnitude-9.0 Earthquake Possible In Two U.S. Locations

I have been warning about this for a long time, here is another warning!!!

A massive earthquake on par with the recent catastrophic seismic event in Japan could happen in two places in the United States, scientists say.
Geophysicists estimate that the Cascadia Subduction Zone, an intersection of tectonic plates just off the northwestern coast that stretches from the northern tip of California up to Canada, is capable of generating an earthquake with a magnitude as high as a 9.0.
The last time the area shook that hard was 300 years ago. "There were hardly any people living on the Pacific Northwest Coast in 1700," said Heidi Houston, a seismologist at the University of Washington's Department of Earth & Space Sciences. "But it generated a huge tsunami that traveled to Japan and destroyed coastal villages there. The Japanese records show that the causative earthquake could only be our Cascadia Subduction Zone and it had to have been a magnitude-9.0."

By analyzing sedimentary deposits in low-lying areas along the coast, paleoseismologists have determined that large tsunamis (almost definitely produced by large earthquakes) strike the Pacific Northwest about every 500 years, give or take 200 years. Because the last one happened in 1700, "that means sometime in the next 400 years it will happen again," 

Scientists aren't able to provide a more specific time frame than that. They know what conditions must be present in an area to lead to massive earthquakes, but, according to Nathan Bangs, a geophysicist at the University of Texas, "it's hard to do useful predictions."

"The low-lying areas have deposits that give a record of repeated history of tsunami inundations, and how big they were. That means you may know the likelihood on the order of hundreds of years, but it doesn't give the likelihood in the next few years," Bangs explained.

A 9.0 earthquake is also possible in Alaska, the most earthquake-prone state in the U.S. In 1964, the Aleutian fault separating the Pacific and North American plates ruptured near the city of Anchorage, resulting in a 9.2-magnitude earthquake – the second largest ever recorded on a seismograph.
The San Andreas Fault, commonly perceived to be more dangerous than the Cascadia Fault because of the proximity of several major California coastal cities, is not actually capable of generating a 9.0-magnitude earthquake. "The biggest one there would be just under 8.0," said Houston.

Scientists Project Path of Radiation Plum URGENT

A United Nations forecast of the possible movement of the radioactive plume coming from crippled Japanese reactors shows it churning across the Pacific, and touching the Aleutian Islands on Thursday before hitting Southern California late Friday.

Health and nuclear experts emphasize that radiation in the plume will be diluted as it travels and, at worst, would have extremely minor health consequences in the United States, even if hints of it are ultimately detectable. In a similar way, radiation from the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 spread around the globe and reached the West Coast of the United States in 10 days, its levels measurable but minuscule.

The projection, by the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization, an arm of the United Nations in Vienna, gives no information about actual radiation levels but only shows how a radioactive plume would probably move and disperse.

The forecast, calculated Tuesday, is based on patterns of Pacific winds at that time and the predicted path is likely to change as weather patterns shift.

On Sunday, the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission said it expected that no “harmful levels of radioactivity” would travel from Japan to the United States “given the thousands of miles between the two countries.”

Japan shock could cause world recession 'relapse'

Australian one dollar coin sits on an Australian 20 dollar and 50 dollar note

The Australian dollar plunged this morning as Japanese investors pull out of so-called risky currencies, and there are fears of a new leg to the financial crisis.

The Australian dollar sell-off has taken place gradually over the past four days, but this morning it fell off a cliff.
It plunged from yesterday's close of 99.1 US cents to a low of just above 97 US cents.
St George Bank's chief economist Besa Deda says the Australian dollar is at its weakest point this year.
"The Australian dollar is going down the elevator. The old adage that it goes up the stairs and down the elevator is holding true," she said.
"It's dropped about two figures against the US dollar during overnight trade."
The US dollar is one measure, but the big story is the rise of the Japanese yen, with the Australian dollar down 4 per cent at one point.
That is because Japanese currency investors, who borrow cheaply at home and buy the high-yielding Australian dollar, are now pulling their money back to fund the post disaster reconstruction.
Besa Deda says Japan's triple trauma of earthquake, tsunami and near nuclear meltdown means investors are more than just worried.
"Global nervousness is very high at the moment, particularly with a lot of uncertainty around the nuclear reactors and what that might mean in Japan," she explained.
"One measure of risk aversion is the VIX index. It is sitting just under 30 which is its highest level since July of 2010 and, generally, when you get high risk aversion you see money move out of areas that are considered to be riskier."
One such 'risky' asset is the Australian dollar.
However, Besa Deda also says many Japanese investors are having to pull their money out to deal with the crisis at home.
"Certainly that's a factor at play, and investors are expecting that repatriation flows will weigh even heavier on the currency over coming months," she said.
"And obviously there's also insurance payments that need to be made, and also overseas aid will also support the Japanese yen."
It is not just the Australian dollar being battered - other major currencies have suffered from the rise of the yen including the US dollar, the Euro and the British pound.
Share markets in Europe and the United States were also rattled by the escalating crisis in Japan, along with the deepening unrest in the Middle East, and news that Portugal's sovereign debt rating had been cut once again.
Those ingredients are adding to what some economists worry might be the third phase of the global financial crisis.
The chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia Stephen Roach says the crisis in Japan is a shock that might see that scenario come to pass.
"It occurs at a time when the Japanese economy is weak, and has been weak for over 20 years. It occurs at a time in the world when the world is also weak, having just come out of the worst crisis and recession since the 1930s," he explained.
"When you hit a weak economy with a shock - and, by the way, this Japan shock is not the only shock, there's higher oil prices, there's the sovereign debt problems - when shocks hit weak economies the risk of a relapse is much higher than otherwise might be the case."
Stephen Roach is also worried about the trillions of dollars of injected into global economies over the past three years, with the emergency measures by the Bank of Japan adding to the bill.
He wonders about a world floating on borrowings that might never be repaid.
"What worries me the most is that there will never be a set of conditions that allow central banks to truly deliver on this promise to withdraw liquidity, and we could end up with a massive inflationary end game in the world," he said.
"Japan is just the latest reason to keep the liquidity spigot wide open, but there's bound to be more in the years ahead.
"And, with central banks out of traditional ammunition - their interest rate is at zero - they really don't have much other choice, and that's an end game that worries me a lot."
Late this morning, the Australian dollar had recovered some ground, with speculators blamed for the sell-off.
But Besa Deda of St George is managing expectations about a return to parity with the US currency.
"The Australian dollar can certainly get back to parity later in the year, given that underlying economic fundamentals are very favourable in Australia and that still remains the case," she said.

Global Financial Markets Plunge As The World Watches Japan Descend Into A Nuclear Nightmare

Global financial markets are in turmoil as the situation in Japan continues to deteriorate.  Stock markets are plunging all over the world as investors flock to investments that are considered to be safer.  The 9.0 earthquake and the unprecedented tsunami in Japan would have been more than enough to spook investors and unleash chaos on world financial markets, but now the unfolding nightmare at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility is really starting to cause panic.  Right now there is a mass exodus out of the city of Tokyo.  But not everyone can leave the city.  There are over 30 million people living in and around Tokyo.  So where in the world could you possibly put 30 million refugees?  Sadly, the truth is that millions of Japanese are going to stay in Tokyo no matter how high the radiation gets.  Let us hope that Japanese authorities can get the situation at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility under control, but the fact that they have resorted to dropping water from helicopters and shooting water cannons at these nuclear reactors is not comforting.
World financial markets are certainly not expressing a lot of confidence right now.  This week alone, $300 billion in U.S. stock values have been wiped out.  The Dow Jones industrial average lost about 2 percent of its total value on Wednesday.  The Nikkei 225 stock index has lost about 10 percent of its total value since the beginning of this crisis.  At one point it was down more than 16 percent, but a gigantic monetary injection from the Bank of Japan has helped to stabilize things at least for now.  There are also some that believe that the Japanese government is now directly buying up stocks to keep them from falling even further.
Stock markets across Europe have been plunging as well.  An article posted on the USA Today website described some of the carnage on Wednesday....
In Europe, the FTSE 100 index of leading British shares closed down 97.05 points, or 1.7% at 5,598.23 while France’s CAC-40 fell 84.29 points, or 2.2%, to 3,696.56. Germany’s DAX ended 133.82 points, or 2%, lower at 6,513.84.
The financial ripples from this crisis are going to be felt for a long, long time.
In order to rebuild Japan, the Japanese government is somehow going to have to borrow massive amounts of money.  But the Japanese national debt was already projected to reach 228 percent of GDP this year.
The Japanese government has become an incredibly bad credit risk, but lowering their credit rating right now would seem to be in very bad taste.  So far, all three major credit rating agencies are taking a "wait and see" approach when it comes to Japan.
Unfortunately, the crisis in Japan is far from over.
The situation at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility just seems to grow more dire with each passing day.  Right now, the primary concern is the 40 years of spent fuel rods that are stored throughout the complex.
Ed Lyman, a physicist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, recently explained why the pools that store the spent fuel rods are the biggest problem at this point....
"For the time being, the greatest concern is the spent fuel pools because there is a clear pathway for release of radioactivity from the pools into the environment."
The phrase "spent fuel rods" may make it sound like they should no longer be a threat, but the truth is that these fuel rods remain extremely hot and extremely radioactive for years after they are done being used.  For some reason, someone thought that it would be a good idea to store these spent fuel rods in huge pools of water near the top of each of the nuclear reactor buildings at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex.
These spent fuel rod pools are not housed in the same kind of containment vessels that the nuclear reactors are.  Therefore there is a much greater danger that radiation from these spent fuel rods could be released into the surrounding environment.
A recent article by Paul Joseph Watson did a great job of explaining just how big of a problem these spent fuel rods represent....
The Fukushima Daiichi plant has seven pools dedicated to spent fuel rods. These are located at the top of six reactor buildings – or were until explosions and fires ravaged the plant. On the ground level there is a common pool in a separate building that was critically damaged by the tsunami. Each reactor building pool holds 3,450 fuel rod assemblies and the common pool holds 6,291 fuel rod assemblies. Each assembly holds sixty-three fuel rods. In short, the Fukushima Daiichi plant contains over 600,000 spent fuel rods – a massive amount of radiation that will soon be released into the atmosphere.
Each of these 600,000 spent fuel rods is a potential "dirty bomb".
Are you starting to grasp just how serious this all is?
It is absolutely critical that all of these spent fuel rods remain submerged in water.
If the water drops in the spent fuel pools there will be nothing to keep the spent fuel rods cool and they will start to degrade very, very quickly.
Unfortunately, things don't look good right now.  U.S. authorities today expressed their belief that the spent fuel rods in unit 4 are now exposed and that a great deal of radiation is being released.  In fact, Gregory Jaczko, the chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, stated during Congressional testimony today that he believes that an extremely high level of radiation is being released by exposed spent fuel rods at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility at this point....
We believe that radiation levels are extremely high, which could possibly impact the ability to take corrective measures.
It would be hard to understate the courage of those that are working inside the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility right now. They all likely realize that they are all going to die very quickly. They are laying down their lives in an effort to save their countrymen. According to a recent report from CBS Newsthese workers say that they are not afraid to die....
Although communication with the workers inside the nuclear plant is nearly impossible, a CBS News consultant spoke to a Japanese official who made contact with one of the workers inside the control center.
The official said that his friend told him that he was not afraid to die, that that was his job.
Would all of us respond the same way?
Even the media that are reporting on this disaster in Japan are starting to be affected by this radiation.  Lester Holt revealed this morning that his entire crew had tested positive for radiation after returning from an assignment.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama is acting as if all of this stuff going on in Japan is no big deal. In fact, as Keith Koffler recently observed, Obama seems to be really enjoying himself in the midst of this crisis....
This morning, as Japan’s nuclear crisis enters a potentially catastrophic phase, we are told that Obama is videotaping his NCAA tournament picks and that we’ll be able to tune into ESPN Wednesday to find out who he likes.
Saturday, he made his 61st outing to the golf course as president, and got back to the White House with just enough time for a quick shower before heading out to party with Washington’s elite journalists at the annual Gridiron Dinner.
If you are curious about Obama's picks for the NCAA tourney, they are posted on the official White House website.
This weekend, the Obamas are headed down to Brazil. According to an article in Forbes, the Obama plan to do a good bit of sightseeing while they are there....
The Obama family will also take in the sights in Rio. A trip to Corcovado mountain, where the Christ the Redeemer statue stands (France gave us Lady Liberty, gave Brazil Jesus) is supposedly on the itinerary. What trip to Rio would be complete without it?
Isn't it great to see Obama acting like a true leader in the midst of one of the greatest moments of crisis that the world has seen since World War 2?
What in the world is Obama possibly thinking?
One thing about a major crisis is that it reveals the true character of those affected by it.  Many are responding to this crisis in Japan with great acts of courage and heroism.
Others are not rising to the occasion.
Let us just hope and pray that the Japanese figure out a way to get the situation at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex under control.  If a "worst case scenario" happens we could soon be facing an unprecedented nuclear nightmare.

Bahrain declares martial law as violence escalates

Bahrain’s king declared martial law on Tuesday as his government struggled to quell an uprising by the island’s Shi’ite Muslim majority that has drawn in troops from fellow Sunni-ruled neighbor Saudi Arabia.

The three-month state of emergency will hand wholesale power to Bahrain’s security forces, which are dominated by the Sunni Muslim elite, stoking sectarian tensions in one of the Gulf’s most politically volatile nations.

The three-month state of emergency will hand wholesale power to Bahrain’s security forces, which are dominated by the Sunni Muslim elite, stoking sectarian tensions in one of the Gulf’s most politically volatile nations.

he official urged the government to “uphold its commitment to the human rights standards it has set for itself,” and called on all parties to “exercise maximum restraint and refrain from violence... to support meaningful and peaceful dialogue.”

The US noted it was particularly concerned about attacks on civilians and humanitarian targets, including ambulances and hospitals, by the riot police.

Finance Ministry Holds First-Ever War Drill

Minister Steinitz (at right), file photo.

Israel continues to prepare for war as regional upheavals create uncertainty on its borders and Iranian saber-rattling draws closer.
The Finance Ministry held a war drill Tuesday, rehearsing a scenario in which full scale war breaks out. The exercise tested the Ministry's economic readiness for emergency and its functioning in case of damage to vital market systems.
The Ministry practiced management of the Israeli market and services to citizens under war conditions.
The Finance Ministry drill was preceded by a period of protracted and extensive preparation, in cooperation with internal and external bodies that have relevance to the matter.   
Among the people participating in the drill were Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, Deputy Finance Minister Rabbi Yitzchak Cohen and Ministry Director Haim Shani. Each member of the Ministry's directorate rehearsed the reaction of the department under his or her supervision, and coordinated moves with the other branches and additional relevant bodies. The participants came up with various messages pertaining to the emergency situation and rehearsed how these messages would be passed on to the public and to international bodies.
The drill focused on coordination with financial bodies such as the Bank of Israel, the Federation of Industrialists, the Trade Bureau Union and others.
Directing the drill was the Ministry's Emergency and Security Department, which created a scenario based upon data it received from the Defense Ministry. The drill was reportedly useful in locating weak spots in the Ministry's emergency preparedness that need to be addressed. 
Homeland Protection Minister Matan Vilnai complimented the drill's participants and noted that government ministries have avoided rehearsing war scenarios "for many years."
