Synagogue Shooting Suspect in Custody, Congregants Prevented Shooting ‘From Being a Much Worse Tragedy’ - CBN News Gary Lane

Synagogue Shooting Suspect in Custody, Congregants Prevented Shooting ‘From Being a Much Worse Tragedy’
CBN News Gary Lane
A 19-year old man is in police custody following a shooting this morning at a synagogue in Poway, California just north of San Diego.
One person was killed and three others injured at the Congregation Chabad Synagogue in San Diego County.
San Diego police say the suspect called 911 and later surrendered to police. The unidentified man said he was responsible for the synagogue shooting.
Witnesses said they were attending services marking the end of Passover when a gunman shouting obscenities entered the synagogue and started shooting a semi-automatic weapon.
Poway Mayor Steve Vaus told CNN that the “shooter was engaged by people in the congregation and those brave people certainly prevented this from being a much worse tragedy."
Four shooting victims were taken to Palomar Medical Center Poway and one of them, an older woman reportedly died there. Hospital officials said three victims were in stable condition.  
Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein was among the injured. Shot in the hand but undeterred, Goldstein proceeded to deliver his sermon, telling the Jewish Orthodox congregants to “remain strong. “
Mayor Vaus told CNN he considered the attack a hate crime "because of statements that were made when the shooter entered."
Police are examining a letter and the suspect’s social media posts to determine a motive for the attack.
President Trump expressed sympathy for the victims and tweeted,  “Thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by the shooting at the Synagogue in Poway, California. God bless you all. Suspect apprehended. Law enforcement did outstanding job. Thank you. “
Vice President Mike Pence also sent out his own tweet saying, “We condemn in the strongest terms the evil & cowardly shooting at Chabad of Poway today as Jewish families celebrated Passover. No one should be in fear in a house of worship. Antisemitism isn’t just wrong - it’s evil. “
It was the second mass shooting at a U.S. synagogue in the past six months. Eleven people were killed and seven injured October 27, 2018 at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Robert Bowers was charged with using a firearm–an AR-15 to commit a hate crime. He received a total of 29 charges, including 11 counts of criminal homicide.

Holly Watson: "It's Time to Emerge! The Billion Soul Harvest Has Begun!" - The Elijah List

Holly Watson: "It's Time to Emerge! The Billion Soul Harvest Has Begun!"

The Elijah List Apr 11, 2019

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:
Sometimes it feels like we are sitting in front row seats for the awesome things God is doing right also seems all of creation is expressing the birth pains of something phenominal that's about to take place.
Holly Watson's most recent word shares some great insight into what we can expect in the days ahead. She shares:
"In Strong's Dictionary the word 'sign' is the Hebrew word ōth. All throughout Scripture from Genesis to Revelation we read of examples where God used signs as evidence to demonstrate His movements upon the earth. Signs are a flag, a beacon of light, a prophetic marker, a signal and a banner. They are supernatural tokens of the miraculous appearance of God, orchestrating events to awaken man to His sovereignty and wonder-working power."
What sorts of signs is Holly referencing? Read on to find out. We are surely living in exciting times! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"It's time to emerge!" I heard Holy Spirit shout this phrase into my spirit as we crossed over into a new season. Immediately I thought of Lazarus, as Jesus called Lazarus out of the grave, despite the unbelief of others. By all appearance's sake, Lazarus didn't have much hope of coming back to life; at least that was until the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit moved through Jesus and broke down the walls of man-made assumptions.
"Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth!' And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, 'Loose him, and let him go.'" (John 11:43-44)
Lazarus was a sign and a wonder to those who doubted in the sovereignty of God. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus back to life, the power of God was on display for all to see. Lazarus was a living example of how God caused a turnaround in the bleakest of situations. The name Lazarus means "Whom God helps" or "the assistance of God." The story of Lazarus is a perfect example of a 12th hour miracle, sparking faith in the unbelieving!
"I am making a way where there seems no way, and I am calling My Church to emerge into a new place of power and glory."
"Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion."(Isaiah 8:18)
All the Signs Are There—Pay Attention!
If you live on the West Coast or have watched any of the media outlets lately, you have probably seen the reports about the migration of butterflies moving up the coastline from the deserts of Mexico. Over the past several weeks, it's been quite a phenomenon to observe as Holy Spirit speaks through the signs and wonders of nature. No matter what your opinion is of California, the hand of God has definitely been on display through the movement of these Painted Lady butterflies.
"This shall be the sign to you from the Lord, that the Lord will do this thing that He has promised." (Isaiah 38:7)
I was driving in my car recently when I heard Holy Spirit say, "All the signs are there. Pay attention!" A few events foreshadowed this prophetic message from the Lord, as I had been tracking with Holy Spirit through the manifestation of the signs of God working miraculously in our midst. Not only had Holy Spirit populated old prophetic words in my inbox dating back to the year 2015, but the Lord had been speaking to me about a revival angel who would be awakening the earth through the signs and sounds of harvest.
"And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow."(Matthew 28:2-3)
In Strong's Dictionary the word "sign" is the Hebrew word ōth. All throughout Scripture from Genesis to Revelation we read of examples where God used signs as evidence to demonstrate His movements upon the earth. Signs are a flag, a beacon of light, a prophetic marker, a signal and a banner. They are supernatural tokens of the miraculous appearance of God, orchestrating events to awaken man to His sovereignty and wonder-working power.
In Deuteronomy 6:22, Scripture says that God showed signs and wonders great and grievous before our eyes. In Luke 21:25-28, we read that the evidence of signs appearing on the earth will signal the coming of the Son of Man, at the end of the age. The appearance of signs led the Israelites through the wilderness through a cloud by day and a fire by night. God spoke to Moses on the backside of the desert through a burning bush, shifting Moses and the Israelites into a new era, by a sign appearing in an unexpected and out-of-the-ordinary place. In Judges 6:36-40, when Gideon laid his fleece before God, God responded to Gideon by giving him a sign as an answer to his prayer.
Jesus showed many signs and wonders to awaken unbelievers to who He was. Holy Spirit performed signs through the hands of the apostles as they were sent as "Fishers of Men," fulfilling the Great Commission.
There's no doubt that the physical manifestation of miraculous signs is a part of the DNA of God! Scripture exhorts us not to seek after signs (Matthew 12:39). However, the appearance of signs confirms, affirms and leads us into the heart and will of the Father, while His Spirit makes Himself known through the evidence of signs. (Photo via Unsplash)
"And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you." (1 Samuel 10:7)
The Billion Soul Harvest
As the West Coast has become a witness to the sight of these beautiful butterflies soaring up the coastline, "the billion soul harvest" prophecy by Bob Jones has definitely resonated in many of our hearts. It's not uncommon for this beautiful breed of butterfly to make its way north during the spring of each year. However, this year, 1 billion butterflies are forecasted to migrate to their new home in the Northwest, after having sojourned through the state of California.
According to news reports, the emergence of this beautiful breed of butterfly is due to the elevated levels of precipitation accumulating on the West Coast after 7 years of prolonged drought. The outpouring of rain saturating the dry and barren soil, has created prime conditions for harvesting a billion butterflies. What makes this story even more intriguing, is that these 1 billion butterflies migrated from the backside of the wilderness, only to find an abundance of wealth in an out-of-the-ordinary place, and unexpected land! God chose the sign of these butterflies and the conditions in which they originated from to send a message to the Church, that the billion soul harvest has begun!
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
I hear the Spirit of the Lord say, "Now is the time for My Church to arise and shine for her light has come. Where barrenness and a depletion of life have inflicted a rebellious and lost generation, a harvest of new souls are emerging for such a time as this. I AM moving in new ways and in new power in the most unexpected places in the land.
"I am making a way where there seems to be no way, and I am calling My Church to emerge into a new place of power and glory. The phrase 'cast your net on the other side' is My meter for pulling in an unusual harvest of souls. A mass amount of 'refugees' (including the homeless, the outcasts, the prodigals, a lawless generation, and illegal aliens) will come to know My name and the power of resurrection life. I am birthing a new move of My Spirit through unexpected sources. I am choosing undercover vessels to make My name well known and famous. I am no respecter of persons," says the Spirit of the Lord. "And I am giving new life to those who surrender to My call."
"There's no doubt that the physical manifestation of miraculous signs is a part of the DNA of God!"
"They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest, He blessed them, and their number greatly increased..." (Psalm 107:37-38)
The Mantle of Paul Cain
On February 12, my husband and I were sitting at our dining room table when a "suddenly" came upon us. I had been in a time of preparation for a local service through prayer and fasting, when a mantle dropped from Heaven and rested upon my shoulders. As I felt the effects of what was transpiring in the spiritual realm; Holy Spirit then took me into a vision where I saw mantles being distributed to the saints of God, in specific and strategic regions. I hadn't expected the placement of this mantle to feel so weighty. However, I realized soon enough that the call upon this mantle was for a bold, radical and outrageous generation. It wasn't until a few days later that I discovered the well-know prophet, Paul Cain, had gone on to glory. This happened during the exact time my husband and I had this supernatural encounter with the Lord.
"Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into Heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried out, 'My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen!'....Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him..." (2 Kings 2:11-12, 14)
Paul Cain was known as a "Latter Rain Prophet" who prophesied the end-time stadium revivals. I've never met Paul Cain in person, and before this encounter with the new mantles I had very little knowledge about the man or his ministry. However, I believe this too is a sign from the Lord that a new generation of prophetic evangelists are being commissioned and mantled afresh with a double portion of anointing and power. I believe a new impartation for stadium revivals are being awakened at this hour to touch a generation with a radical move of the Spirit.
A changing of the guard has occurred! A sweeping move of God is prepared to blaze through the land as the Church makes her mark on the world! An on-fire remnant of not only Millennials, but end-time, chosen generals of the faith are merging streams to host a move of God in shocking and startling ways. "Unpredictable" is the word I keep hearing! When the right streams align at the right kairos moment in time, Heaven touching Earth will bring mighty demonstrations of God's glory!
"For thus says the Lord of hosts: 'Once more (it is a little while) I will shake Heaven and Earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,' says the Lord of hosts." (Haggai 2:6-7)
The Revival Angel
A few weeks ago the Lord showed me a revival angel being released upon the earth. When I saw this revival angel, the West Coast was highlighted as a place where the resurrection power of God would occur. I saw a great shaking in the spiritual realm for the state of California, as the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles was an epicenter for the Spirit of the Lord to move through with miracles, signs and wonders like never before.
I saw the appearance of this revival angel as a prophetic marker of how the Father is desiring to move across the land. An outbreak of glory in the most least likely places, to reach the most least likely faces is what the billion soul harvest is all about! (Photo via Pexels)
Even though deep darkness covers the face of the earth, and the evidence of the earth groaning with birth pains is on the heart of every Believer, the Spirit of the Lord is sending signs to His people of an end-time emergence of the billion soul harvest.
This is the Church's greatest hour! God is calling an Esther generation to arise and be a voice while accomplishing great Kingdom exploits. The Spirit of the Lord says, "All the signs are there. Pay attention. It's time to emerge!"
"Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!" (John 4:35) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Johnny Enlow: "California, Revolution, and the Angel of Innovation" - The Elijah List

Johnny Enlow: "California, Revolution, and the Angel of Innovation"

The Elijah List Apr 19, 2018

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:
I love Johnny Enlow's articles.
They are always filled with a combination of prophetic revelation about some important thing, and COMBINED with a great deal of the gift of WISDOM.
This will encourage you. Having grown up and met my wife in California, my heart goes out to the state.
Great innovations seem to begin in California, and then go throughout the USA and the nations. God is about to amp up all those things again—FROM CALIFORNIA.
These innovations are often not ONLY in the secular arena, but also the spiritual arena.
That is why Johnny speaks a lot about the innovations by Aimee Semple McPherson.

P.S. – Oh, and a Quick Note to our readers: To EXPLORE our more than 2,500 Christian Prophetic books, CDs, and gifts go to:

I believe this May, a revolution comes of full age for the state of California and it is going to affect everybody, everywhere. California is the world's catalytic leader for most everything, and has furthermore become the catalyst for culture itself. It is both an enigmatic and magnetic state that much of the nation has a simultaneous love/hate relationship with. There are unhinged, unbalanced policies, requirements and taxes that are "head scratchers" almost everywhere, yet it is the number one destination for dreamers from all over.
This dynamic allows it to have almost 1/8 of the total United States population (over 40 million) and to be an economic global powerhouse all on its own terms. Not only is it a Promised Land of sorts for dreamers here and from nations south of the border, but it is a top destination for millionaires from China, as well as other Asian nations. In actuality, there is a significant number of people from almost every nation on the planet. Whatever California's faults are, it is still the most welcoming state in the union (to some that IS its fault). California is wacky, wonderful, irritating, and exhilarating all at once.
California: God's View
"Many are trying to jumpstart old expressions of revival and holiness, but what I sense is coming is decidedly not that but something altogether new."
In 2012, while pastoring with my wife in Atlanta, Georgia, the Lord spoke to me about His heart for California, and out of that we moved to California, where we have been based for the last 5 years. What He spoke to me was this:
"California has been minimized and diminished. It has been prophesied into the sea. It has been railed against. My Holy Spirit broods over that state, and I am not done with California. It has been the head of society for over 100 years, and it will still continue to be that. The 7 mountains of California release realities that not only affect the whole nation, but they set a standard for the whole worldWhat starts in California goes global. I am now going to radically affect the 7 mountains of California and as a product of that the seven mountains of the world will be affected.
"I want you to move to California and I want you to speak and prophesy that everywhere. Cast down every prophetic word of judgment against California and encourage and walk beside those that are on those 7 mountains. The enemy wants the Church to abandon California and to prophesy her demise so that the mantles and anointings I intended for California would be distorted and counterfeited."
God then walked me through California's history of the last 100 plus years and the catalytic nature of everything that happens here on the 7 mountains. California is a Promised Land and it has in macro form a most uncanny resemblance to natural Israel. This, I am sure, is part of a mystery yet to be revealed. California's topography and agriculture also have an uncanny resemblance to Israel's. As a center of innovation and cutting-edge advances, it has again a matching dynamic with Israel.
Furthermore, California is a major destination for Jews—and the Los Angeles area alone has an estimated 1 million who call the city home. While California is famous for "Hollywood" and "Silicon Valley" (Apple, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Ebay, Amazon, etc.), many of the key people in both of those industries are Jewish. They are also at the tops of the other 7 mountains of society as they live out their Abrahamic commission to prosper. (Photo via Pixabay)
Additionally, they are wired to know that their call is to do something that makes things better for the world. To our shame as the Church, while we have been doctrinally-inspired to tell the world things are worse and worse and are going to soon be cataclysmically so, these descendants of Abraham who mostly don't know Jesus, have been those primarily responsible for making things better for others through their inventions and innovations. They, while not yet reconciled to their Messiah, are doing more to be "salt and light" than those who should be passionately doing that.
We, the Church, have taken great advantage of the advanced tools of technology/social media that they have made available, yet we ourselves have been perhaps the least innovative people on the planet. Christians have typically been so heavenly/rapture-minded that we have been primarily absent from the tech/innovation advances. This is all going to change now.
The Angel of Innovation
As I was praying into an upcoming conference I will be speaking at in Los Angeles, I saw a great angel of innovation presiding over these meetings. This angel has been around, but is being released at another level, coinciding with the 70th birthday of Israel—which is in May.
There is once again interplay between happenings in Israel and California. The event is called SALT (May 3-5), and will be held at the famous Angelus Temple where Aimee Semple McPherson ministered for years. She was particularly known for her creativity and the innovative ways she thought and did everything. Most of her new ways of presenting the Gospel were met with boisterous criticism by the general church leaders of that day, but she became a household name that was greater than that of any Hollywood star of her day (reportedly greater than that of the President himself). She was a top draw, even for Hollywood elites, because of her creative and exciting presence and power-filled meetings that were unlike anything others had seen at church or ministry.
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
Aimee shocked the religious Christian world by boldly taking all aspects of the Gospel, including the healing power of God, into the mainstream world. She pioneered the usage of radio as a vehicle to reach the masses; she had the first mega church in America—and it was designed to reach the masses. She was the first to use the arts to share the Gospel, often using elaborate productions from the platform to do her preaching. While most of the Church was trying to practice "be ye separate from the world," Aimee was in touch with Jesus' words: "You are the salt of the earth."
By declaring we are the salt, Jesus commissioned us to live lives that are so filled with His love, power, and creative innovation that we literally preserve society, not allowing the world's culture to rot.
During the Great Depression, Aimee outdid the government in feeding the poor of Los Angeles, and she had a tremendous heart of justice with multiple ministries that facilitated that. Though she did not do things perfectly, in spirit she might have been 100 years ahead of most Christians. I believe Aimee had a 7 mountain reformation mentality and understanding along with a rare freedom from religion that allowed her to love unconditionally. The Holy Spirit was clearly with her, as she was also known for the miraculous being her every-day reality.
What she did from the stage of Angelus Temple is now going to go to the stages of the 7 mountains (media, economy, education, government, family, arts, religion) as this angel of innovation is going to be key in activating the salt within us that we were meant to be.
Salting the World with the New
"The enemy wants the Church to abandon California and to prophesy her demise so that the mantles and anointings I intended for California would be distorted and counterfeited."
Something is going to be released at this SALT conference that is going to unleash Christian innovation as never before. I believe it is out of honor to Aimee Semple McPherson that God is choosing her original staging area as a release point for something unprecedented. We are going to cease being the one-trick-pony—the over-reactive, expectant of judgment, fear mongers that we have tended to be. We are going to stop salting societal wounds and realize that salt is a healing, curing, and preserving element when it's used the way God intended, sourced in love.
Many are trying to jumpstart old expressions of revival and holiness, but what I sense is coming is decidedly not that but something altogether new. The young will probably have to showcase this next expression as we older ones are almost terminally inclined to seek yesterday's version of revival and holiness. Many are sensing the wave of the new coming in, but with it some are trying to reboot what was yesterday's expression of a move of God, based often on yesterday's assumptions of it being "the very last days."
Rather than belaboring that or further expounding upon that, let me just say a revolution is about to be unleashed and I believe it will start in California. It will be called many things, but ultimately it will be about the people of God shifting into innovation at every level.
Just as businesses become irrelevant if they don't innovate, so too will those who stick to the old script of how God moves and become irrelevant in societal reformation. He is calling us to showcase His Kingdom in the 9 to 5 world by evidencing that we actually have a living relationship with the Creator of the universe. He has solutions, upgrades, and new ways of doing things for everything. Mining can be done a new way. The homeless can be taken care of in a new way. School can be taught in a better way. Energy can be plentiful, free, and non- polluting. There ARE cures for AIDS, cancer, blindness, quadriplegics, Alzheimers and more.
The plight of inner cities can be solved. The penal system can actually be rehabilitated. Elections can happen transparently and fairly. Sex-trade and the pornography epidemic can be completely interrupted. Cars can be upgraded where accidents are rare. The FBI, the FDA, and the IRS can all be reformed and upgraded. Housing can be beautiful and affordable. Poverty can essentially be eliminated. Science can prove God is who He says He is. And so on and so on.
We have assumed that most of these above plights can only be fixed by traditional repentance and revival. However, what is lacking is the innovative solutions sourced in love from those who are called by His name to bring a better way that becomes the new standard bearer. Germs, for example, didn't cease being problems through more prayer, holiness, or revival. Someone discovering how germs thrive and how to kill them is what became the game-changer. (Photo via Pixabay)
Practical honesty is not currently increasing in society because more people are going to church or the like. Practical honesty is increasing because cameras and surveillance technology are bringing another level of undeniable accountability. Even pastors are having to resign now because electronic trails are confirming their misdeeds.
Yes, we also need church meetings done in innovative ways—but it is the Church in society (the Ekklesia) every day that needs to be the greatest evidence of us being the SALT. The baptism of fire that is present and upcoming on the Church is to burn up the religious boxes we have mainly camped in. We are going to learn that the things we love to sing about our God are the very expressions of Him He wants us to become in society. We sing song after song of how He radically, unconditionally loves us, forgives us, restores us, gives us another chance, is kind, is generous, is graceful, etc. None of our songs are about how pleased we are that He points out our sin or how He holds us accountable, yet somehow we think that is a valuable role for US as it relates to the world. Aren't you glad that is all going to change?!
California Overhaul
California is now going to go into total overhaul-mode. Intruders, impostors, and ingrates are going to lose positions of power and influence, especially on the mountain of government, making opportunities for those with hearts to truly serve. California will cease being an orphan state, bereft of identity and ignorant of her assignment. Out of that will come unending ripples of grace and benevolence to the nations. Christians as well are going to cease operating as orphans, bereft of identity and ignorant of our assignment. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

There Have Been 698 Earthquakes In California Within The Past 30 Days - Michael Snyder THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG

Posted: 26 Nov 2017 Michael Snyder  THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG

Why is the west coast shaking so violently?  According to the latest data from Earthquake Track, there have been 698 earthquakes in California within the past 30 days.  By the time that you read this article, that number will undoubtedly have changed.  In recent days I have felt such an urgency to write about the seismic activity on the west coast, and I am quite concerned that so few people seem to be paying attention to what is happening.

As I have covered previously, scientists tell us that when seismic activity begins to escalate the probability of having a major earthquake jumps significantly.  Over the past month there have been more mainstream news articles about earthquake swarms in California than I have seen in years, and the magnitude 4.6 earthquake that rattled Monterey County earlier this month made headlines all over the world.

And it isn’t just the U.S. section of the “Ring of Fire” that seems to be awakening.  I have written about Mt. Popocatepetl down in Mexico several times recently, and on Friday it erupted three more times
Spectacular eruptions have been seen Southeast of Mexico City as Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano spewed smoke and ash high into the air.
The volcano had three eruptions Friday, one of which reached two and a half miles into the sky.
The first explosion occurred at about 5:00 p.m. local time.
Two more explosions overnight spread ash over the villages and fields south of the volcano.
I cannot stress enough how potentially dangerous this situation could become.  In ancient times, Mt. Popocatepetl completely covered entire Aztec cities with massive amounts of super-heated mud.  Scientists assure us that someday Mt. Popocatepetl will once again erupt in a similar fashion, and the devastation that this will cause will be off the charts.

Meanwhile, an extremely dangerous volcano on the other side of the Ring of Fire is also rapidly coming to life.  When Mount Agung violently erupted in 1963, more than a thousand people were killed, and authorities are extremely concerned about the eruptions that are happening right now
Volcanic eruptions on the Indonesian resort island of Bali have prompted officials to cancel flights and move about 24,000 residents out of the way as a thick ash cloud from Mount Agung, thousands of meters high, drifts east and southeast along the archipelago.
Residents were evacuated from 224 points around the island while Lombok International Airport on Pulau Lombok, the island due east of Bali, has closed temporarily, said Ari Ahsan, spokesman for Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali.
Over the weekend we witnessed eruption after eruption, and the column of ash coming from the volcano is now more than 4 miles high
The first eruption came around 5:30 p.m. local time (4:30 a.m. ETSaturday, Bali’s Regional Disaster Management Agency said. More eruptions followed and continued into Sunday, with a “medium-pressure eruption” in the early evening that sent ash 2,000 meters into the air, the agency said.
By late Saturday, the volcanic ash plume had reached an altitude of 7,600 meters (4.7 miles), according to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology.
But what is troubling authorities more than anything else is the fact that magma has been “detected close to the volcano’s surface”
It told people within a 7.5km exclusion zone to “immediately evacuate” in an “orderly and calm manner”
Magma – molten rock – has now been detected close to the volcano’s surface, said officials and volcanologists.
I know that the mainstream media is endlessly obsessed with covering the controversies surrounding President Trump, but to me all of this seismic activity that we are seeing along the Ring of Fire is the biggest news story in the entire world at the moment.

I am convinced that what we are witnessing is quite unusual.  All over the planet “dead volcanoes” are coming back to life, and major fault lines are being hit by a seemingly endless barrage of small to mid-size earthquakes.

Is it possible that all of this shaking is leading up to something?

Stay tuned, because I believe that what we have seen so far is only just the beginning…

Yes, this is a true story.  I was completely shocked when I learned about this too, and this just underscores the importance of repealing the individual mandate immediately.  Shortly after taking office, President Trump issued an executive order which was intended to move the IRS away from enforcing Obamacare’s individual mandate, but now the IRS has found a way around that executive order.  According to the official AARP website, the IRS has announced that it will not process any tax returns from individuals that are not willing to disclose whether they currently have health insurance or not…
The Internal Revenue Service won’t process individual tax returns in 2018 unless taxpayers indicate whether they have health insurance coverage or an exemption.
The move, announced last month, reverses course from this year, when the IRS said it would not require filers to indicate on 1040 tax forms whether they had health insurance. Filers were still required to have medical insurance or pay a penalty, but the IRS accepted and processed returns even if taxpayers didn’t indicate coverage status.
So what this means is that you will not get your refund until you tell the IRS if you have health insurance.

And if you don’t have health insurance and you don’t qualify for an exemption, you could be hit with a very painful financial penalty.

Of course purchasing health insurance in some parts of the country is enough of a penalty as it is.  For example, I recently wrote about a family of four in Virginia that is now facing the prospect of paying $3,000 a month for health insurance.

Talk about being between a rock and a hard place.

And it also turns out that the IRS is going back and sending threatening letters to those that didn’t indicate if they were covered or not on previous tax returns.  Here is more from the AARP
IRS spokesman Bruce Friedland said it followed a review of IRS procedures.
“The IRS has determined that ‎it is more burdensome for taxpayers to allow them to file an incomplete tax return and then have to manage follow-up letters and potentially amend their return,’’ Friedland said. “Identifying omissions and requiring taxpayers to provide health coverage information at the point of filing makes it easier for the taxpayer to successfully file a tax return and minimizes related refund delays.”
In September, the IRS started sending letters to about 130,000 taxpayers who didn’t address the health care requirement on 2014 and 2015 tax returns.
So if you left that section of your tax return blank in previous years, you should be expecting a letter in the mail very soon.

At this point, many of you that are reading this article are probably starting to get very angry.  After all, didn’t President Trump sign an executive order earlier this year that was going to end enforcement of the individual mandate?

Unfortunately, that was not the case at all.  In fact, Politico is reporting that the Trump administration “is still dutifully enforcing Obamacare’s individual mandate”…
The Trump administration is still dutifully enforcing Obamacare’s individual mandate, despite early signals it might undermine the unpopular linchpin of the health care law.
Weeks after the close of tax season, the IRS continues to process penalties from potentially millions of taxpayers who refused to purchase health insurance last year.
That’s even though hours after taking office on Jan. 20, President Donald Trump issued a vaguely worded executive order instructing federal agencies to waive or defer parts of Obamacare that would “impose a fiscal burden” on states, individuals or health care providers.
Enough is enough.

Obamacare should have been repealed on the very first day of the Trump administration, but unfortunately the RINOs in Congress are going to keep blocking any effort to do that.  Elections really matter, and in 2018 we need to kick out the RINOs and put in new leaders that are fully committed to a 100% repeal of Obamacare.

We also need to do something about the IRS.  They have always been a rogue agency, but now they have gotten completely and totally out of control.  I am running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district, and I believe that we should completely shut down the IRS.

The status quo is simply not acceptable.  Obamacare is financially crippling families all across America, and we should be absolutely disgusted that Congress has not found a solution to this problem even though they have had almost an entire year to get something done.
