Thursday, May 8, 2008

In a Fox News interview this afternoon, former UN Ambassador John Bolton discussed his desire to bomb camps inside Iran that are reportedly training and arming Shiite insurgents who fight in Iraq. Fox host Martha McCallum asked, “Can you imagine a scenario where President Bush would do that before the end of his term?” Bolton responded, “I think so, definitely.” He added later, “This is entirely responsible on our part.”

Strong earthquake rocks Tokyo region

A series of strong earthquakes including one with a magnitude of 6.7 hit the Tokyo area early Thursday, cutting off power to more than 2,000 homes and causing light injuries, officials and reports said.

Japan's meteorological agency warned that more moderate aftershocks could strike, although there were no fears of a tsunami.

The strongest earthquake hit at 1:45 am (1645 GMT) in the Pacific Ocean off Ibaraki prefecture, some 100 kilometres (60 miles) northeast of Tokyo.

Study: U.S. honey bees in dramatic decline

State College, Pa. (UPI) May 7, 2008

Dennis vanEngelsdorp of Pennsylvania State University, president of the AIA, said nationwide colony numbers have dropped from 4.5 million managed colonies in 1980 to 2.4 million in 2005. To quantify the degree and extent of losses in U.S. beekeeping operations between September 2006 and March 2007, the AIA surveyed beekeeping hobbyists, sideliners and commercial operations.

Of 384 beekeeping operations surveyed, total loss and average loss of bees in all operations was 31.8 percent and 37.6 percent, in that order, with 51.9 percent reporting abnormally heavy losses.The Apiary Inspectors of America says the United States has seen a dramatic decline in the number of managed honey bee colonies since 1980.

Of beekeepers reporting the number of hives containing few or no bees in the spring, 23.8 percent met the specified definition of colony collapse disorder -- meaning 50 percent of dead colonies were found without bees or with very few dead bees.

In all, New Mexico reported the lowest average loss of 14.4 percent and Ohio the highest average loss of 61.4 percent. Overall, the organization said U.S. beekeepers suffered an average loss of 38 percent of their colonies during the winter of 2006-07.

Why is this happening?


(From White Feather, Bear Clan, Hopi Tribe)
The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

He (the Pahana) will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.

“The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

“This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana (Anunnaki Quetzalcoatl), but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.

“This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes — the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.”

“This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes — the coming of the white men’s cattle.”

“This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.”

“This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web.” (Internet/Telephone wires)

“This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.” (Highways)

“This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.”

“This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.

“And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.

“These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands — with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come (in the future) will cause disease and a great dying. Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon — very soon afterward — Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World.

“But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. You — perhaps will see it. In time, in time…”
