“…and there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.”  … Luke 21:25

“And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;”… Revelation 8:8-9

“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.”…Saint Malachy

“Newly Found Asteroid to Pass Within Moon’s Orbit on March 4, 2013”

“A newly found asteroid will pass just inside the orbit of the Moon, with its closest approach on March 4, 2013 at 07:35 UTC. Named 2013 EC, the asteroid is about the size of the space rock that exploded over Russia two and a half weeks ago, somewhere between 10-17 meters wide (the Russian meteorite is estimated to be about 15 meters wide when it entered Earth’s atmosphere). 2013 EC was discovered by the Mt. Lemmon Observatory in Arizona on March 2. . There is no chance this asteroid will hit Earth.

2013 EC will come within 396,000 kilometers from Earth, (246,000 miles, or around 1.0 lunar distances, 0.0026 AU.

The Moon’s distance from the Earth varies between 363,104 km (225,622 miles) at perigee (closest) and 406,696 km (252,088 miles) at apogee (most distant point).

Gianluca Masi from the Virtual Telescope Project had a live view of the asteroid when it was about twice the distance of the Moon, and a replay of that webcast is available below.”

More from NASA:

AU = ~150 million kilometers
1 LD = Lunar Distance = ~384,000 kilometers

(2013 EC)  2013-Mar-04 0.0025 1.0 6.9 m – 16 m 27.9 20.18

    The scariest part of this news story is that this asteroid, about the size of the Russian meteor, with the right trajectory, could wipe out a large city. It was discovered 2 days ago.

  2. CW….

    Is there any chance this thing is heading toward Washington DC?

    If so: PARTY TIME !!!

  3. citizenwells

    Sadly no.

    The reason it was only discovered 2 days ago is obviously due to sequestration. 🙂

  5. Another Obama fiasco:

    Let’s starve! Kids forced to go hungry for hours during Michelle Obama media event

    A very courageous fifth teacher in the Chicago Public Schools has written a scathing critique of the almost comical misery she and her students endured when they participated in a massive February 28 event kicking off Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Active Schools campaign.

    Goes without saying.

  7. Sher Zieve:

    “ObamaGov: Story of a Tyrant and a Collaborative Congress”

    “Despite his ill-gotten success, but raised by Communist he and she wolves, Obama is destroying the country he has been taught to hate since he was a child; the same country that gave his grandparents an excellent income and lifestyle in Hawaii and Obama a life of privilege and enrollment at Honolulu‘s finest school. There is no other logical or rational explanation. He is destroying the country with vigor and prurient joy. Therefore, that was and is his intention. His early heroes were Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin and Adolph Hitler. He later graduated to admiring the oft-mentioned self-proclaimed Luciferian Saul Alinsky.

    We are living under tyranny now, via one manufactured crisis after another. In fact, since Obama took the helm of our country, our ship has hit one iceberg after another in his attempt to bring the country to its end. With a collaborative Congress, Obama is very close to doing so…and to bringing most of us to our own ends, also.”

  8. This is a take on the eligibility issue I never saw before. It goes to the idea of once Obama was elected his eligibility questions became moot. I have no idea where this law originated and the poster does not state where the law came from–national or a local law–but it does fit the eligibility issue as far as precedent. There were a lot of people who said a similar thing before O took the oath the first time, but I never saw a law posted that went along with that reasoning at the time. A number of people said we need to stop him before he was officially sworn in or it would be nearly impossible to remove him for this violation. I never understood why, but maybe this is the answer to my questioning. Not sure if it is of value or not, but an interesting read.

    Good morning Zach, et al.

  10. CJZAK………….
    I am wondering when CASE LAW began trumping Constitutional law.? I am sure that this is in the TINY minds of the OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS, but HEY KNARF you told on yourself…………BTW CASE LAW does NOT TRUMP Constitutional law……..EVER!

  11. Air Force Brat!

    cjzak @10:35 a.m. — two links to articles (I believe they’re from 2009) in which OK Senator Jim Inhofe weighs in on the eligibility issue. Note that in both, Inhofe does not dismiss the concept out of hand. The comments after the articles are, of course, vitriolic left-wing bile.

  12. Is Obama’s brother a wife beater? President’s sibling is accused of attacking two of his TWELVE wives and seducing a schoolgirl. Now he’s using his White House links to launch his own bid for power

    + President Obama’s half-brother accused of being wife beater
    + Roy Abong’o Malik Obama standing for election in Kenya
    + Dismisses wife-beating allegations as being ‘a matter of interpretation’

  13. If an act was the result of FRAUD then the ties to thatr fraud are also fraudulant. This translates to the fact that PRECEDENT can not be established via ELECTION FRAUD. The OBOTS can SAY anything they want,but since we no longer have the availability of the FEDERAL Courts, we NOR THEY can utilise the courts to back up their claims. You can call ANYTHING a law, but the trick is to prove that it actually exists. Precedent can not be established in Soetoro’s case primarily because he has NOT LEGALLY PROVEN who he is. The fact that he was elected by the electoral college, allegedly based upon the polular vote STILL DOES NOT establish precedent, there are far too many vote irregularities,many in the state of Florida as well as Ohio. There were over 1,000,000 vote irregularities in the state of California. If the person who was elected was not legally the
    person who the voters thought he /she was then the election was FRAUDULANT. A fraudulant act does NOT ESTABLISH PRECEDENT. I am sure that the OVEREDUCATED SNOTNOSED WORDSMITHS will argue this until the cows come home. At least the cows have the brain capacity to recognise HOME,when they see it. I do agree though that UNTIL we get back the JUDICIAL branch,ANYBODY CAN SAY UP IS DOWN ,and everybody might be forced to believe it whether they want to or not. Believing in your mind is not the same as believing in your heart. Unfortunately our laws are not basesd upon morality. Perhaps it is time that at least some of our laws are based upon morality.
