Some Damage Reported After 7.0 Earthquake Rattles Alaska

Anchorage, AK...From USGS..."The November 30, 2018, Mw 7.0 earthquake near Anchorage, Alaska, occurred as the result of normal faulting at a depth of about 40 km. Focal mechanism solutions for the event indicate slip occurred on a moderately dipping fault striking north-south (dipping either to the east at about 30 degrees, or the west at about 60 degrees). At the location of this earthquake, the Pacific plate is moving towards the northwest with respect to the North America plate at about 57 mm/yr, subducting beneath Alaska at the Alaska-Aleutians Trench, approximately 150 km south-southeast of this event. The location and mechanism of this earthquake indicate rupture occurred on an intraslab fault within the subducting Pacific slab, rather than on the shallower thrust-faulting interface between these two plates.




Earthquakes are common in this region. Over the past century, 14 other M 6+ earthquakes have occurred within 150 km of the November 30, 2018 event. Two of these – a M 6.6 earthquake in July 1983 and a M 6.4 event in September 1983 – were at a similarly shallow depth and caused damage in the region of Valdez. The M 9.2 great Alaska earthquake of March 1964, was an interface thrust faulting earthquake that ruptured over several hundred kilometers between Anchorage and the Alaska-Aleutians trench, and to the southwest."

I have family there. They’re obviously rattled but reached them by phone and they’re okay. The roof of the local high school collapsed and part of the building is on fire with students evacuated. Upper offices in some downtown buildings and the medical center are badly damaged with windows broken out. Prayers for all and that the tsunami is a non-event.

        Democrats have the House majority they need to impeach President Trump in 2019, but they still don’t have something very important to the equation: hard evidence of an impeachable offense.
        Friday evening on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin, pointed out that there’s a lot of speculation flying around about what Trump supposedly did, but there’s not a whole lot of evidence behind any of it.
        Levin played recent television appearances by Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., in which each speculated about the president’s supposed dealings with Moscow or the status of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Levin then went on to highlight the lack of proof to support the various Russia theories.
        “They’re just trying to create this narrative,” Levin concluded. “It’s the big lie, and they’re good at it. They repeat it and repeat it and repeat it, and the media help them.”

          Legal Expert: The Only Crimes Mueller’s Report Have Uncovered Are the Ones It Created
          Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz argued Thursday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is creating crimes rather than uncovering past ones, and that the “devastating” report he will write will be based on people “who have lied.”
          Dershowitz appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” following the plea deal entered into by President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen earlier in the day, regarding past statements he made to Congress.
          In a federal court filing in New York, Mueller charged that Cohen made false statements via a 2-page letter to Congress in August 2017 regarding a Moscow building project the Trump Organization was considering in 2016. The attorney had related in his letter that discussions had ended by January 2016 before primary election season, but according to Mueller’s team, they had continued until June of that year.
          The president told White House reporters before leaving for the G-20 Summit in Argentina on Thursday that Cohen was lying to get a lesser prison sentence, and even if he wasn’t, there was nothing illegal about the Trump Organization considering the project while he was a private citizen. Trump further pointed out that ultimately he decided against the project, and multiple media outlets had reported on it at the time, so the news was not new.
          USA Today reported that Cohen faced a maximum of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for lying to Congress, but thanks to the plea agreement he entered into with Mueller’s team, his sentence would be six months and a fine of up to $9,500.

          Russian Collusion: In June 2010 Bill Clinton Paid $500,000 By Russian Regime –
          In July 2010 Ten Russian Agents Were Released By Obama Without Charges

          The fake news mainstream media wants you to believe the Trump family was colluding with Russia because they discussed building a Trump Tower in Moscow before the 2016 election. The project was dropped and NEVER HAPPENED.

          This same media ignores obvious criminal actions by the Obama-Clinton Democrats.
          In June 2010 Bill Clinton Met with Russia leader Vladimir Putin – In July 2010 Ten Russian Agents Were Released by Obama Without Charges and Given Back to Russia. Putin Praised the Russian Spies as Heroes.
          It has been widely reported that Bill Clinton flew to Russia in 2010 and was paid $500,000 for giving one single speech. It is also well know that during his trip to Russia, the former President petitioned the State Department to allow him to meet with a key member of the Russia state owned uranium company Rosatom.
          The Hill reported in October:
          As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
          Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.
          The Hill continued in noting that:
          Bill Clinton instead got together with Vladimir Putin at the Russian leader’s private homestead.
          A short time later the Obama’s Administration approved the sale of 20 percent of US uranium to Russia. The Clinton foundation walked away with millions and the US lost one-fifth of its uranium to rival Russia.
          We also now know that the FBI uncovered Russian bribery of the Clintons in 2009 and the Department of Justice and the FBI sat on this for four more years. Worse yet, from a recent report we discovered the investigation was supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, who is now President Trump’s Deputy Attorney General, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who is now the deputy FBI director under Trump.
          Mueller is now heading a corrupt investigation into Trump on Russia collusion after being appointed by Rosenstein. This madness was orchestrated under Attorney General Jeff Sessions who recused himself from Russia related investigations. Many people are calling for Mueller to step down.
          What has not been widely reported is that at the time of the Uranium One deal the US government released 10 Russian agents arrested for espionage. A short time after the former President met with Putin in Russia, these agents were given back to Russia and given a heroes welcome by Putin and not even charged with espionage.

      The Mueller investigation has come up empty on Russia -- You won’t believe what's coming next
      The pattern and purpose of Mueller’s investigation and the endgame is becoming clear, and yes, it’s clearly get the president at all costs. The team Mueller hired really foretold the story — Andrew Weissmann as the stop-at-nothing pit bull and a group of Democratic-leaning lawyers, including some who have represented the Clintons, had the obstruction of justice charge ready to go on day one.

    It Is Obvious: The US Has A Two-Tiered Legal System- Anyone Who Opposes To The Democrat Deep State Cabal Is No Longer Protected By The Law:
    Today Americans are praying they are not on the wrong side of the law. The problem is the wrong side of the law is not based on the law but rather on which political party you are connected to.
    Tucker Carlson shared last night how the US now has a two-tiered legal system today. Those who are part of the corrupt establishment and everybody else.
    The $40 million tax payer funded criminal Mueller witch hunt continues in spite of its unconstitutionality and criminality. Mueller and his Deep State gangsters continue in their efforts to remove President Trump from the White House. At the same time these criminals protect the crooks from the Clinton and Obama administrations.
    Ordinary Americans are outraged as they watch the collusion from the Deep State’s friends in the media promoting the biggest criminal sham in history. The Mueller investigation continues while Americans’ lives are destroyed by this vicious and disgusting gang.
    Good honest Americans have had enough. We will not stand back and allow a gang of Democrat criminals destroy our country!
    President Trump – Please Do Something Now Before Democrats Drive This Country to Mass Violence and Lawlessness!

      We know that glade has been with us since at least the early 1500s, though the word's origins remain a bit of a mystery. Glade, which originally was often used not just to indicate a clearing in the woods but one which was also filled with sunlight, may come from the adjective glad. In Middle English, glad also meant "shining," a meaning that goes back to the word's Old English ancestor, glæd. Glæd is akin to Old High German glat ("shining, smooth") and Old Norse glathr ("sunny"). It may also be a relative of Old English geolu, the ancestor of the modern English word yellow.
      Examples of glade in a Sentence
      Recent Examples on the Web
      Nearby a young male moose lounged in a riverbank glade and a Pronghorn antelope sprinted across fallow farmland once plied by early and unsuccessful Mormon farmers.
