KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. — Kershaw County has recorded its second earthquake this month, continuing a trend of minor tremors in that area that began late last year.

The quake is on the lower end of the strength scale and it’s unlikely anyone felt it unless they were near the epicenter. 

Just four days ago–on March 5–a 1.8 magnitude quake was recorded only a few miles from this latest tremor. Since December 27, a total of 20 earthquakes have rattled the same region, 17 of those presumed to be aftershocks of a considerably larger magnitude 3.3 earthquake that preceded them.

It’s not known why this area has seen so many earthquakes in such a short amount of time.

Earthquakes happen throughout the state but most occur near the coast. Approximately 70 percent of earthquakes are in the coastal plain, with most happening in the Lowcountry.

Back in 1886, Charleston was hit by a catastrophic earthquake. It had an estimated magnitude of 7.3, and was felt as far away and Cuba and New York. At least 60 people were killed, and thousands of building were damaged.

Structural damage extended hundreds of miles to cities in Alabama, Ohio, and Kentucky.

Geologists say that Charleston lies in one of the most seismically active areas in the eastern United States. 

Iranian Horn’s Goal of Destroying Babylon the Great

Tehran Will Not Give Up Goal of Killing Americans, Even at Expense of Nuclear Deal

This week, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) naval unit said Tehran will not stop trying to avenge the elimination of Qassem Soleimani, describing such a notion as “pure fantasy.” Soleimani was the regime’s top terrorist mastermind. The IRGC commander, Alireza Tangsiri, was responding to reported American demands that Tehran should not avenge Soleimani’s death in exchange for the IRGC’s removal from the US list of terrorist organizations.

Soleimani, the former commander of the Quds Force, was killed by a US drone strike at the Baghdad airport in January 2020. Days later, the regime fired a volley of ballistic missiles into eastern Iraq, targeting military bases where US servicemen were housed. More than 100 soldiers suffered traumatic brain injuries, and Tehran soon began to insist that this was only the first reprisal.

Iranian regime forces and their regional proxies then carried out drone strikes on at least two other military bases where American personnel was stationed. More recently, it was reported that former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, among other Americans, had received credible threats of an assassination plot hatched by the IRGC.

Tangsiri stated that the high commander of the IRGC itself “has said that revenge is inevitable and that we will choose the time and place for it.” These remarks reinforce the sentiment expressed earlier in the week by Saeed Khatibzadeh, the spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry.

The regime previously called for Pompeo and former President Donald Trump to be tried by an “Islamic court,” but added that if Western authorities would not accept that demand, then Tehran and its supporters would pursue “justice” via their own extrajudicial mechanisms. One senior IRGC commander declared last week that even killing all current US leaders would be insufficient to avenge Soleimani’s death.

Ironically, the growth of this rhetoric does not appear to have affected Tehran’s public expressions of confidence regarding prospective resolutions regarding the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, or the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Negotiations for a mutual return to compliance with that deal began more than a year ago and are still ongoing.

For the past several weeks, figures on both sides of the Vienna talks have been insisting that the issues underlying most of those demands have been resolved. Mohammad Eslami, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, has reiterated Tehran’s official position that the discussion of “technical issues” has concluded and that the regime is now waiting for the US to make “political decisions” that could lead directly to the signing of a new agreement.

Media reports indicate that the White House is increasingly determined to keep the IRGC on the terror list in spite of Iran’s insistence that this constitutes a “red line” in the regime’s negotiating position.

By most accounts, the IRGC’s potential delisting is the last sticking point in the negotiations over the restoration of the JCPOA. But it is likely irresolvable, especially given that political figures on both sides of the dispute appear to be publicly hardening their respective positions.

In Tehran’s case, this trend reflects a hardline consolidation of power that began in earnest with tightly-controlled parliamentary elections in February 2020, then continued with a similarly undemocratic presidential election in June 2021. Conversely, the White House’s refusal to acquiesce to Iran’s last demand is contrary to what many observers expected following the inauguration of President Joe Biden, who had said that he would promptly reverse his predecessor’s decision to pull out of the nuclear deal.

But Biden has faced mounting pressure over that issue and specifically over the prospect of delisting the IRGC, with statements of concern coming not just from traditional Republican adversaries but also from within the ranks of his own Democratic Party. And his apparent sensitivity to that criticism has not stopped political commentators from continual warnings that a new agreement with Tehran could end up channeling money directly into the IRGC’s hands, especially in the wake of delisting.

“If Iran wants sanctions lifting that goes beyond the JCPOA, they’ll need to address concerns of ours that go beyond the JCPOA,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said when asked about the Revolutionary Guards blacklisting.

“If they do not want to use these talks to resolve other bilateral issues, then we are confident we can very quickly reach an understanding on the JCPOA and begin to reimplement the deal itself,” Price told reporters.

In Tehran, the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is also not having a good time deciding whether to waive beyond-JCPOA to secure some sanctions relief or not. Sealing the nuclear program for the second time, despite all the rhetoric and all the mobilizing of his own base on that very project, will cost him more than his own image this time.

Whether Tehran will blink first or Washington, the question remains to dominate many heads and strategy planning rooms around the world. With a Khamenei-ally waging war in Ukraine, rising oil prices fueling his ambitions for more extortion, and US midterm elections on the horizon, it’s certain that giving in to the Iranian regime’s demands is not going to be the best of options.

Kamala Harris Gives Russia and China Nuclear Control over Space

Kamala Harris’s Latest Mistake: Giving Russia and China More Control over Space


April 24, 2022 6:30 AMListen to article

Banning American anti-satellite missile testing won’t decrease space debris, but it will let our enemies do more of what they want in space.

The Biden administration is unilaterally banning American anti-satellite missile testing without any sort of agreement that Russia and China will do the same, all to prevent a problem created exclusively by those authoritarian countries.

“Simply put, these tests are dangerous, and we will not conduct them,” Vice President Kamala Harris said at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. “These weapons are intended to deny the United States our ability to use our space capabilities by destructing, destroying our satellites, satellites which are critical to our national security. These tests, to be sure, are reckless, and they are irresponsible. These tests also put in danger so much of what we do in space.”

Harris’s only justification for this radical policy change was that she hoped other nations would follow America’s lead, calling the pledge “a first step in getting the international community on the same page regarding what is considered responsible behavior in space and, perhaps even more importantly, irresponsible behavior.”

This is utterly absurd. By unilaterally banning anti-satellite missile tests in the mere hope that other countries will follow suit, Harris is putting America at a competitive disadvantage and effectively handicapping the country’s defenses.

Weapons that generate space debris do create real issues, but the Biden administration is flat-out wrong to assert that American weapons demonstrations have added to this problem.

In February 2008, the U.S. Navy demonstrated America’s capabilities by shooting down a malfunctioning spy satellite in a decaying orbit with a toxic fuel load. Said test created only 174 pieces of space debris, the last of which burned up in Earth’s atmosphere in October 2009. Such U.S. tests are simply not dangerous, despite what the vice president asserts.

Only America’s enemies still criticize this demonstration, as at the time Russia had drafted a new treaty with Chinese support to ban space weapons.

Before supporting the proposed treaty, China had already demonstrated its capability to shoot down satellites in January 2007 in a weapons test that remains among the greatest sources of man-made space debris in history. The test created approximately 2,000 trackable pieces of debris larger than a golf ball that were officially catalogued, out of an estimated 150,000 debris particles in total. An estimated 3,000 of the 10,000 most dangerous pieces of space debris tracked by the U.S. military are from this Chinese weapons test, even over a decade later.

In November, a Russian anti-satellite weapon forced American astronauts on the International Space Station into the space equivalent of hiding in a bunker after it created a massive debris field of more than 1,500 pieces, any of which could do devastating damage to the orbital infrastructure upon which the American military depends. This showed just how disturbingly vulnerable the U.S. is in space. Russia had attempted such a demonstration before, but always missed its target. Debris from both Russia and China pose a serious risk to astronauts from many countries on the International Space Station as well as the world’s satellite system.

Harris’s pledge both blames America for a problem it clearly did not create and diminishes the country’s defenses in this area without any sort of deal binding China or Russia to do the same, even though both of those authoritarian countries have contributed exponentially more to the space-debris problem.

Space debris generated by American weapons tests have not ever presented a comparably serious issue, and any minor debris issues effectively ended over a decade ago. In contrast, space debris from Russian and Chinese weapons tests remains a huge problem today and is even getting worse. Naturally, Harris lays blame only on America.

Russia’s 2021 and China’s 2007 weapons tests can be analogized to firing a shotgun in a crowded room where anyone hit by the shot would also be forced to fire a shotgun blast of their own in an escalating feedback loop, which scientists estimate could generate so much debris in orbit that mankind’s ability to safely access space would be jeopardized for multiple generations.

In contrast, America’s 2008 demonstration was a well-targeted sniper round planned for months to impact only its target. Harris’s conflation of these incidents is as pathetic as it is ridiculous.

What’s worse is the fact that America is far more reliant on space both for military advantages and civilian critical services like broadband, cellphones, weather forecasting, and GPS than either Russia or China.

This increases the likelihood that either of those countries would be willing to deny space access to both themselves and America in a conflict, as the U.S. military is far more reliant on space superiority to achieve its objectives than they are. Although both sides would lose in such an event, America’s relative advantage would decline more. Without our communications satellites, we would be effectively deaf. Without our navigational satellites, our ability to aim accurately would be compromised.

Instead of addressing this critical issue, the Biden-Harris administration is engaging in pointless diplomatic virtue-signaling which greatly undermines America’s ability to test future means of defending itself in orbit.

Antichrist’s men introduce bill to criminalize normalization with Zionist regime

The political bloc of Iraq’s influential Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is set to submit a bill criminalizing the normalization of ties with the Israeli regime.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The political bloc of Iraq’s influential Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is set to submit a bill criminalizing the normalization of ties with the Israeli regime.

“The Sadrist bloc and its allies … will soon announce a draft project to criminalize normalization and dealing with the Zionist entity at all,” Sadr wrote in a tweet on Saturday, adding that the bill would be forwarded to the parliament for a vote.

The “issue of normalization and Israeli ambitions to dominate our beloved Iraq,” he said, “was one of the core reasons that got the Sadrist Movement involved with the electoral process again.”

Sadr’s coalition won more than 70 seats in the October parliamentary election.

The top Shia cleric previously slammed a gathering that was held in Iraq’s Kurdistan region last September with the aim of pushing for joining the so-called Abraham Accords and normalizing relations with the Tel Aviv regime.

Back then, he said Erbil “must forbid such terrorist Zionist meetings.”

Back in September 2020, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed normalization deals with Israel. Morocco and Sudan later signed similar agreements with the Israeli regime as well.

The so-called Abraham Accords were pushed by the US under former president, Donald Trump.

Palestinians have denounced the normalization deals, describing them as a “stab in the back” and a “betrayal” to their cause.

Late last year, the Iraqi Foreign Ministry reiterated Baghdad’s support for the Palestinian cause, stressing that the Arab country categorically rejects any normalization scheme with the Tel Aviv regime.

Why Is Obama-Biden Nuking Up Iran?

The Biden administration, if it actually cares about peace in the region, would do well to listen to the warnings of the many U.S. military leaders and Congressmen.

By Majid Fafidzadeh, Gatestone Institute

Why would any administration in its right mind permit an official state sponsor of terrorism, the Islamic Republic of Iran, to have nuclear weapons, as well as billions of dollars that will assuredly not be used for a “GI Bill for returning members of the Revolutionary Guard”?

Just this week, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan called Iran, a “sponsor of terrorism.”

Calls and warnings against reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, however, seem to be falling on deaf ears, as the Biden administration appears determined to reach a deal that would enable a state that has been trying to take over the entire Middle East for decades — and already controls Lebanon, Yemen, Syria and Iraq — to have nuclear weapons, the ballistic missiles to deliver them, and billions of dollars to further its well-documented terrorism.

Last week, 45 retired U.S. Generals and Admirals sent an entreaty, titled “Open Letter from U.S. Military Leaders Opposing Iran Nuclear Deal”, to the Biden administration, warning against reviving of the nuclear deal. They wrote:

“In Ukraine, we are bearing witness to the horrors of a country ruthlessly attacking its neighbor and, by brandishing its nuclear weapons, forcing the rest of the world largely to stand on the sidelines.

“The new Iran deal currently being negotiated, which Russia has played a central role in crafting, will enable the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism to cast its own nuclear shadow over the Middle East.

“As retired American military leaders who devoted their lives to the defense of our nation, we oppose this emerging deal that is poised to instantly fuel explosive Iranian aggression and pave Iran’s path to become a nuclear power, threatening the American homeland and the very existence of America’s regional allies.”

Empowering Iran, alienating US allies

While the Biden administration is indefatigably trying to appease the ruling mullahs by lifting sanctions against the Iranian regime, the Islamic Republic has been ratcheting up its threats and attacks against the U.S. bases and its allies, presumably as a nudge.

In addition, the head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, Esmail Qaani, recently commended “Palestinian martyrs” and threatened Israel as well:

“We are in the middle of the battlefield. The Islamic Republic of Iran is at the forefront of the scene against global arrogance and international Zionism, and we will continue on the path of their honor and greatness, thanks to the martyrs.”

Qaani also boasted about the Houthis’ access to weapons:

“Today, the heroes of Yemen and the new sons of the revolution are building the major weapons they use inside their country… they build missiles with a range of over 1,000 kilometers and drones with a range of over 1,500 kilometers, and all of these operations are carried out using tools and facilities in tunnels and basements, under enemy bombardment…”

The Biden administration is not only empowering the ruling mullahs of Iran and its militia groups but grievously alienating U.S. allies in the region. As the retired American U.S. Generals and Admirals accurately stated in their letter:

“America’s closest regional partners, attacked regularly by Iran, already strongly oppose the proposed deal. If we will not help protect them against Iran, we cannot expect their help addressing threats like Russia and China. We instead support diplomacy that would genuinely end the threat posed by Iran’s military nuclear program and counter Iran’s regional aggression, backed up by credibly drawn and enforced redlines against Iranian nuclear and regional escalation.”

Putin’s next ‘Ukraine’?

Worse, the Biden administration’s new deal with the Iranian regime is much weaker than Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal. With Biden’s deal, restrictions on the regime’s nuclear program would be lifted only two years after the agreement is signed, permitting the regime to enrich uranium at any level it desires and spin as many uranium enrichment centrifuges as it wants.

The new deal will not force the Iranian regime to reveal its past nuclear activities, which had military dimensions.

Astonishingly, Russia will be trusted to be the country that stores Iran’s enriched uranium, and Moscow will get paid for this mission. More uranium for Russia? How nifty: maybe Putin can use it for his next “Ukraine” — in Poland, Sweden or France?

The new deal will not address Iran’s ballistic missile program, meaning that the Tehran regime will continue attacking other nations with its ballistic missiles, provide missiles to its proxy militias in other countries, and advance the range of its intercontinental ballistic missiles to reach the U.S. territories. Iran could even use shorter-range ballistic missiles to reach the U.S., perhaps launched from Venezuela or Cuba, where Iran is already deeply entrenched.

Does the Biden administration care?

To meet the Iranian leaders’ demands, the new deal will most likely include removal from the terrorist list of the IRGC, which has killed countless Americans, both on American soil and off.

The Islamic Republic of Iran began murdering Americans in Beirut in 1983, and also had a hand in the 9/11 attacks.

Last but not least, economic sanctions will be lifted against the Iranian regime and will facilitate the flow of billions of dollars to the ruling mullahs. This will further assist the terrorist regime of Iran to destabilize the region, target and attack U.S. allies, and continue arming, funding and sponsoring its militia and terror groups across the world.

The Biden administration, if it actually cares about peace in the region — a subject that seems open to question — would do well to listen to the warnings of these many U.S. military leaders and Congressmen, and refuse to revive the disastrous nuclear deal.

It will only make even more dangerous a country that the U.S. State Department itself has called “the world’s worst sponsor of state terrorism,” as well as frankly creating an unnecessary security threat in the region, Europe and the U.S.

3rd rocket fired into Israel from outside the Temple Walls: Revelation 11

3rd rocket fired into Israel from Gaza in 24 hrs

Israel has been imposing a strict blockade on the Gaza Strip since Hamas seized control of the territory in 2007.

In a span of 24 hours, a third rocket from the Gaza Strip was fired into Israel on Saturday, following two from the Hamas-ruled enclave the previous night.

The rocket landed in open territory, with no damage or injuries reported, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

In response to several rockets fired into Israel from Gaza in the past week after several months of calm, Israel announced the temporary closure of the sole pedestrian crossing from the enclave to the Jewish state, reports Xinhua news agency.

Thousands of Gazans cross into Israel on a daily basis to make a living.

“The decision to reopen the crossing to workers and merchants will be studied in accordance with the evaluation of the situation,” Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories said in a statement.

Israel has been imposing a strict blockade on the Gaza Strip since Hamas seized control of the territory in 2007.

The militant organisation, which does not recognise the state of Israel, has since launched thousands of rockets toward Israel to break the siege.

Tensions have run high between Israelis and Palestinians in recent weeks amid their repeated clashes in Jerusalem.

Iraqi Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr said he plans to float a proposal to parliament to criminalize the normalization of relations with Israel, Anadolu Agency reported.

“One of the main reasons that prompted me to have the Sadrist movement run in elections again was the issue of normalization and Israeli ambitions to dominate our beloved Iraq,” al-Sadr said in a Twitter post.

He said his movement and allies will soon unveil a proposal to be put for vote in parliament to criminalise normalisation and dealings with Israel.

Iraq’s Penal Code punishes with death anyone who promotes “Zionist principles” or becomes a member in any institution that promotes its idea.

Iraq has no diplomatic relations with Israel, and most of Iraqi political parties oppose normalization with Tel Aviv.
