Earthquake Shakes Mount Ranier. Future News Predicts Devastating Eruption

We have entered a time of change. Certain events stand out like signposts, like markers along the way, showing us in what direction we are headed. Some rare and unusual phenomena occurring now in nature suggest our very survival may well depend on whether we take better care of our earth.

I want to re-emphasize what I just said in, "Arctic Icecap Heating Up Twice As Fast As the Rest of the Earth":

"In my view, we still have some time left to turn the momentum away from destroying our planet and ourselves, but I feel the window of opportunity is closing." Certain events will serve as "markers" in a "countdown toward some point in time when it will be too late for humanity to stop the momentum."

I also wrote in "Arctic Icecap..." about Carlos Barrios, a priest of the Mayan people, whom I recently met at a conference in Sedona, AZ. Carlos says, "If we don't do anything to change our relations with our environment, with Mother Earth, she will take revenge..."

In New York City, back in 1991, I had the privilege of meeting a Native American, Sun Bear, who also had something to say about the earth taking revenge. In one of his books, Sun Bear described a Native American prophecy predicting the eruption of Mount Ranier.

Sun Bear was a Chippewa medicine man and founder of the Bear Tribe, located near Spokane, Washington. I am sorry to say he passed away several years ago. He was a soft-spoken, gentle and unassuming person. He had calmness about him and a quiet way of showing that he cared, and I never have forgotten my brief encounter with him.

In a book he co-authored (with Wabun Wind) and published in 1992, Black Dawn, Bright Day: Indian Prophecies for the Millennium that Reveal the Fate of the Earth, Sun Bear refers to one of the upcoming "markers" in time, one of the markers which I say will mark humanity's countdown to a point of no return. Sun Bear said:

"I live in the State of Washington. The Native people there have a prophecy that came to them a long time back. This prophecy said that there would come a time when the Little Sister would speak and the Grandfather would answer, and the land would be swept clean to the ocean.... The mountain we call the Little Sister is called Mt. St. Helens in the geography books. On May 18th of 1980, the Little Sister spoke and threw a cubic mile of mountain into the air, covering the whole Northwest, and eventually the globe, with volcanic ash."

According to Sun Bear, the "Grandfather" spoken of in the prophecy is Mount Ranier.

After the 1980 eruption, Mt. St. Helens did not "speak" again and Mount Ranier, of course, has not given any "answer"; but just recently, after a long period of silence, Mt. St. Helens, the Little Sister, did "speak" again. On November 7, 2004, in a short segment about Mt. St. Helens, CNN Headline News showed, "pictures of a glowing lava protrusion inside the crater. It's grown 330 feet in nine days", the news anchor said.

More important for this prediction, and to underscore the meaning of the times we have entered, is today's report about Mount Ranier from (Nov. 10, 2004):

"Seattle, Washington (AP)-- Mount Ranier shook with a 3.2 magnitude earthquake.... The quake was centered one mile beneath the surface of Ranier's crater.... Sunday's quake occurred within a cluster of 17 to 18 shallow temblors over several hours."

(Note: to open this report, click above on the title of this article--B.T.)

I have for many years pondered the Native American prophecy passed on to us by Sun Bear; and without going to my Gift of Vision to make this prediction, I have considered the news reports about the current activity of Mt. St. Helens and Mount Ranier.

I believe Mount Ranier, which has been dormant for 150 years, has again become active and will erupt this time with an enormously devastating force. The upcoming eruption of Mount Ranier will cause the land in the Seattle area to "be swept clean to the ocean."

This eruption will serve as another marker in time and space, and, as I said in "Arctic Icecap...", take "us a little closer to a point where we won't be able to reverse the trend."

Related to Prediction in Future News Article, "The 2004 Presidential Election": A Ground Swell of Public Opinion About Election Irregularities

Since the Election Day 2004, there seems to have been a ground swell of public opinion about possible election irregularities.

On the evening of November 9, 2004, Peter Jennings, News Anchor of ABC's World News Tonight, announced that they were doing a news segment that evening on "conspiracy theories" about allegations of irregularities in the 2004 presidential election.

Jennings introduced the segment, saying:

"So it is now a week since the country re-elected President Bush, and we have been a little surprised by how many e-mails we've had suggesting maybe once again that the country got it wrong. As you know, Mr. Bush won by a very comfortable margin of more than 3 million votes. We did think it might be a public service, and quite frankly cut back on the e-mails, if our ballot-watcher correspondent, Jake Tapper, took another look."

This news segment then put an ABC News media spin on the report that was obviously intended to downplay the "various theories" about election irregularities and fraud , painting a picture in which most such allegations appeared to be unfounded. However, correspondent Tapper did mention, "Three Democratic Congressmen have heard the theories and have written to the Government Accountability Office."

One of the three Congressmen, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, (D) New York, spoke on camera and said, "We're requesting an investigation into all the allegations of irregularities with respect to the electronic and other voting machines."

A few days ago, on November 6, an e-mail was forwarded to me providing information from an article by Greg Palast (Tom Paine/Palast), contributing editor to Harper's magazine, suggesting that thousands of votes may literally have been thrown into the trash because they were "spoiled." "Spoiled votes" are votes "cast on punch cards where the hole wasn't punched through completely, leaving a 'hanging chad', or was punched extra times." This e-mail went on to say that in a study of such spoilage occurring in past elections, "Expert statiscians investigating spoilage for the government calculated that 54 percent of the ballots thrown in the dumpster were cast by black folks. (Read the report from the U.S. Civil Rights Commission.)"

On November 8, in another e-mail forwarded to me about the presidential election, Washington, D.C. attorney Cynthia L. Butler said, "There is widespread feeling that he [John Kerry] did not lose the election and that it was taken from him." (I have copied the complete e-mail from Cynthia Butler and posted it in the "Comments" section at the bottom of this article. In her e-mail, she recommends what action can be taken.)

I will not jump to conclusions, but it appears to me that that questions about the accuracy of the 2004 presidential election have surfaced across the country. I had predicted in my piece of October 31, 2004, "The 2004 Presidential Election", that, "Suspicions of vote fraud will persist after Election Day because of reports of irregularities such as...accusations of intimidation of minority voters" and "glitches with new, high tech voting machines." I think those words, as they were written, are finding more and more support from the day-to-day reports coming in since the election.

For more about these allegations of Election Day irregularities and to find out what you can do to help uncover the truth, see not only Cynthia Butler's e-mail in the "Comments" section below, but you also might want to take a peek at is a non-profit organization, and they they seem to be diligently working to uncover the facts about the 2004 presidential election.

Arctic Icecap Heating Up Twice As Fast as the Rest of the Earth

The article I have linked here comes to us from (To see this article, click above on the title of this piece-B.T.)

Jennifer Morgan, Director of the World Wildlife Fund's global climate change campaign is quoted in this article as saying, "The big melt has begun."

The article also says, "Global warming is heating the Arctic almost twice as fast as the rest of the planet in a thaw that threatens the livelihoods of millions of people and could wipe out polar bears..."

The article goes on to say, "President Bush has made it clear he opposes mandatory curbs on gases like carbon monoxide, which creates a greenhouse effect on earth."

I ask how much more Mother Earth can tolerate before she must compensate with fury to protect herself.

The technology is available for us to fuel our vehicles safely with hydrogen fuel. Scientists and engineers who are familiar with hydrogen fuel tell us the only waste product from this fuel is water. Now that's progress. But, then, if we used hydrogen for fuel, what would become of the oil industry?

I would like to say hello to Carlos Barrios in Guatamala. This is a good point at which to bring Carlos into this discussion. Carlos is a priest of the Mayan people whom I recently met in Sedona, Az. Carlos passes on to us a message from the Mayan Elders. We "must take action now to stop the destruction."

When I heard Carlos speak last month in Arizona at the Prophets Sedona Conference, he said, "Mother Earth shows us...her power. If we don't do anything to change our relations with our environment, with Mother Earth, she will take revenge because in this moment we are like a plague. We need to change our minds, our hearts, and we need to go to the development of ourselves."

In my view, we still have some time left to turn the momentum away from destroying our planet and ourselves, but I think the window of opportunity is closing. I feel we are caught in a countdown toward some point in time when it will be too late for humanity to stop the momentum. The re-election of George Bush was a significant marker in the countdown. This latest news about the current increased rate of melting of the Arctic icecap is another marker. More markers are surely coming up, and probably more quickly now.

With such problems cropping up, one after the next, do we not notice we are moving a little closer to a point where we won't be able to reverse the trend?

Lately, I have found myself asking, "Which way will we go?"
