SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) – Hundreds of low-level and medium-sized earthquakes have struck central Idaho since last month, puzzling geologists who wonder whether the ruptures portend a much larger temblor to come or are merely the rumblings of a seismic fault previously thought to be dormant.
The recent earthquake swarm, beginning on March 24 and climaxed by a 4.9 magnitude tremor on Saturday, has produced no reports of injuries or severe damage but has rattled nerves in a region where Idaho’s most powerful known quake, measured at 6.9, killed two children in 1983.
Saturday’s earthquake was the strongest recorded in the state since 2005 and was followed on Monday by a magnitude 4.4 event that struck 10 miles north of the small ranching community of Challis, Idaho, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The Challis tremor knocked pictures and animal mounts from walls, rattled dishes off tables and was felt by residents in neighboring Montana more than 100 miles from the quake’s epicenter, officials said.
The latest seismic surge, including 100 small to moderate quakes on Monday alone, has galvanized government scientists, who planned to install special seismometers in the area as early as Tuesday to more closely track the activity. source – Yahoo News

In an amazing slap in the face to bible believing Christians all across the nation, Barack Hussein Obama chose the first openly-gay Episcopal bishop to lead the closing prayer at his 5th Annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast. Obama has always made a mockery of Christianity, and today’s “prayer breakfast” was no different. Perhaps America’s president needs a little theology reminder, so here it is:
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26.27
WASHINGTON, April 14 – President Obama hosted 150 Christian leaders for the fifth annual Easter Prayer Breakfast Monday. The breakfast marks the beginning of Holy Week at the White House, a tradition started by the Obama Administration in 2010 to celebrate the life and death of Jesus Christ.
“I want to thank you for your ministries, for your good works, for the marching you do for justice, and dignity and inclusion,” Obama told the gathered leaders, before closing with the facetious prayer, “Lord fill my mouth with worthwhile stuff and nudge me when I’ve said enough.”
The president then joked, “The Almighty is nudging me,” before sitting down.
Pastor Joel Hunter offered the opening prayer, and the sermon was delivered by Reverend Otis Moss, who replaced the controversial Jeremiah Wright at Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ. Carlos Whittaker, a Christian singer/songwriter performed.
Then, in an unplanned move, President Obama called on Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, to lead the closing prayer. Robinson shared his surprise by tweeting “OMG” along with a picture of the president. source – UPI
RENO, Nevada: (MyNews4.com & KRNV) — Senate majority leader Harry Reid hasn’t been very vocal about the cattle battle showdown in recent days, but says “it’s not over.”
Reid tells News4′s Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” Joel 2:31
While it is technically possible that bible prophecy could be fulfilled with the appearance of these 4 blood moons over the next 12 months, it is not likely. Many books by end times authors have been written to make money off this idea on eager Christians looking for the Lord’s Return. What is likely, however, is that these blood moons will not usher in any visible fulfillment of bible prophecy like the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. As much as we would love it to be a herald of prophecy, there is a reason why it probably won’t be. Christians are told to “walk by faith”.
“For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:” 1 Corinthians 1:22
In the bible, Christians are not told to look for signs in the sky. We are told to look for the Blessed Hope, which cometh by faith. Christians living in the Age of Grace are commanded to “walk by faith”, and not by sight. The bible says that signs are for the Jews. But these greedy authors, if they “rightly divided” their bible would already know that.
“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” 2 Corinthians 5:7
USA Today: Sky watchers are getting ready for an evening of special viewing when a total lunar eclipse arrives just after midnight on April 15. What’s more, this begins a rare sequence of four total lunar eclipses expected over the next two years.
Some Christians see this series of so-called blood moons as linked to a biblical prophecy of the End Times. A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth and moon line up so the Earth’s shadow falls on the moon, darkening it. The one on April 15 will begin at 1:20 a.m. on the East Coast, according to Sky and Telescope magazine.
“Eclipses are one of the few astronomical events that can easily be enjoyed with the naked eye,” though a pair of binoculars brings it into even greater focus, said astronomy writer Gary Kronk.
As it begins, “the Earth’s shadow will make a slow crawl across the moon’s face, appearing as if there is an increasingly large ‘bite’ taken out of the moon,” said Deborah Byrd with EarthSky.org, an online science magazine.

At first, the full moon will just appear to be a little darker than normal, “but eventually people will notice a much darker arc moving across the moon, with a distinct rusty reddish-brown color,” said astronomer Gerald McKeegan at the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, Calif.
The bloody red color the moon takes on during an eclipse is caused by refraction of sunlight by the Earth’s atmosphere. ”It is the same effect that you see when the sun turns reddish-orange at sunset, only in this case the refracted sunlight projects all the way to the moon,” McKeegan said.
This eclipse also features an extra astronomical quirk. Mars will appear “as a fiery red ‘star’ next to the moon. Together red Mars and the red shadow on the moon’s face should be a spectacular sight and an incredible photo opportunity,” said Byrd. source – USA Today
Leamington Spa, England: Weather experts have been baffled by a black ring which appeared in the sky above Leamington Spa on Friday evening. Schoolgirl Georgina Heap was playing tennis with her mother Jo Heap when she looked up at the sky near Warwick castle and saw a mysterious black ring.
The ring remained in the sky for around three minutes before disappearing completely. The circle resembles a giant smoke ring but Warwickshire Fire and Rescue service said that there had been no reports of fire at the time of the sighting. The Met Office said that the ring did not appear to be weather-related.
Nick Pope, an expert on UFOs and a previous government adviser on unexplained phenomena, said he believed the circle to be ‘organic’. He said: ‘It’s a truly bizarre image. It looks like a smoke ring, but I can’t see where it could have come from.
‘Other alternatives would include some sort of unusual meteorological phenomenon. ’One other possibility is that the shape is made up of millions of bees or other insects, but I’ve never heard of insects behaving in this way before, so if this is the explanation, it’s a real-life X-File.’ source – Daily Mail UK
Evidently, all of Obama’s pink line threats against Russia to leave Ukraine alone has created a Russia that in no way fears American reprisal of any kind. Probably because they know that there is none coming. Sleep safe, America, the community organizer has got this.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, U.S. military officials said Monday.
In the first public account of the incident, the officials said the Russian Fencer made 12 passes, and flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level.
The U.S. warship issued several radio queries and warnings using international emergency circuits, but the Russian aircraft did not respond.
“This provocative and unprofessional Russian action is inconsistent with international protocols and previous agreements on the professional interaction between our militaries,” said Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman.
The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of coming in contact with the ship, said the officials. The passes, which occurred in the early evening there, ended without incident. A second Russian fighter jet flew at a higher altitude and was not a concern, said Warren.
A U.S. military official also said that a Russian Navy ship, a frigate, has been shadowing the U.S. warship, remaining within visual distance but not close enough to be unsafe. The official was not authorized to discuss the incident publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity. source – AP
