Mass Protests in Albania


Albanian protests in February 2017Violent demonstrations in Tirana in 2018?


NEW PREDICTION: 9/28/16 -- Base 7 dating: January 2018.

Text added 7/30/17: Apparently there have already been anti-government protests in Albania since February 2017 and lasting until May. It is possible that tensions may flare up again. Please note that this prediction was posted on September 28, 2016 ... five months in advance of the start of protests. The protests of February-May were fairly civil in nature, not violent. I am envisioning something much worse happening in 2018 than what has occurred thus far. If not, then this prediction is already at least PARTIALLY FULFILLED, albeit prematurely.

The Long-Awaited al-Mahdi Appears


Nostradamus, Quatrain 5.55 ~

Of Arabia Felix, one born powerful in the law of Muhammad:
To vex Spain, to conquer Grenada, and more by sea against the Ligurian people.


The coming of al-Mahdi when the dreadful star appears


NEW PREDICTION: 5/30/15 -- February 2018. The question, of course, that remains is whether we are actually living in either the Christian or Islamic apocalyptic times. Since I always err on the side of caution in most things prophetic and "history repeating itself" cycles, I have to present scenarios for the immediate future that anticipate the possibility of end times prophecy being fulfilled. Bear in mind that Nostradamus essentially says in his Epistle to Henry II, as well as several key quatrains, that we will not reach that point until AD 2242-43 (thus, either AD 2236-2243 or else AD 2243-2250). He also raises an additional optimistic scenario that, if the end is not achieved around the time of this AD 2242-43 window of opportunity, a period of grace for humanity will extend all the way until AD 2827-28.

Most people today who believe in prophecy doubt that mankind can possibly survive on this planet that long without the Second Coming of Jesus Christ or an event like that. For Christians and Muslims both, the return of Jesus is an important climatic event in the apocalyptic prophecies, which are very similar in nature. I am probably one of the few people around who attempts to compare the prophecies of Christianity and Islam and see where and how they actually work together. For example, the figure often called the Sufyani in Muslim end times prophecy is very similar to the Christian prophetic figure known as the beast who appears in the Book of Revelation. The miracle-working figure the Muslims call the Dajjal is very similar to the miracle-working figure in Revelations that Christians call the false prophet (they even work some of the very same miracles). I find it more than a mere coincidence that the false prophet appears after the beast has arisen and dies (or dies and is miraculously resurrected as some believe); likewise, the Dajjal appears after the Sufyani has arisen and dies. The false prophet/Dajjal is, in actuality, the final Antichrist.

At this time, the person behaving most like the beast and Sufyani is the leader of the group called ISIS and ISIL, or as he prefers, the caliphate known as the Islamic State: Caliph Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri al Samarrai, otherwise known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. At his beheast, many are beheaded ... especially Christians. Like the Sufyani, he slaughters women and children. He has killed many thousands in Syria and Iraq, as is prophesied in Islam. In his name unspeakable horrors and torments have been committed, far beyond anything that is even found in Christian and Islamic prophecy.

If the Sufyani and the beast are the same, he will reign for 3 1/2 years (42 months). There are various periods given by Islamic prophecy scholars for the Sufyani's rule, but I noted that 3 1/2 years is one of them. That would be the correct figure only if the Sufyani is the beast. But who could now doubt that ISIS is not the system of the beast and that the beast himself is al-Baghdadi? I could ask another question: who doubted in the period 1940-45 that Hitler was the beast when Nazi Germany held most of Europe in its grasp and was exterminating millions of Jews and Christians? Yet, Hitler was not the beast. If Nostradamus is correct about the dating of the Tribulation ending or beginning in AD 2242-43, or AD 2827-28, then al-Baghdadi is also not the beast.

But, if Nostradamus is correct about the true timing, then, like Hitler, al-Baghdadi is a forerunner ... an archetype of both the beast and the Sufyani.

Still, I must err on the side of caution ... for we may be living in the final days. Nevertheless, Nostradamus mentions a key astronomical event marking the end of time: the orbit of Pluto moving inside of the orbit of Neptune, which happens every 248 years. The last time was between 1979 and 1999; the next time will be between 2227 and 2247. Thus, our time and those times will be quite similar. Thus, any figure who appears to be like an end times figure is either that figure for real now or else is an archetype for a similar figure who will not appear until sometime between 2236 and 2243. Thus, if al-Baghdadi is the beast/Sufyani, then the al-Mahdi is not far away. But, if al-Baghdadi is instead an archetype for the beast/Sufyani who will not actually appear until sometime between 2236 and 2243, then we should expect a figure to emerge soon who will be an archetype for the al-Mahdi who will appear later in the 2230s.

The Mahdi will arise in Saudi Arabia according to Islamic prophecy. There is some indication that his roots may even be in Yemen. He will remain concealed in Saudi Arabia until such time that he will decide to reveal himself and fulfill prophecy. According to the hadith of Ka'b a star will rise from the East and "illuminates for the people of the Earth like the illumination of a moon in a full-moon night. A star will rise from the East before the appearance of the Mahdi and it has a tail." This star may be a very bright comet, but it also may be the giant star Betelgeuse in the constellation Orion that will explode into a supernova ... an event I predicted may occur in October 2017.

The Mahdi will then go to war with the Sufyani and kill him. However, there is much controversy over this as some say it will be Jesus who kills the Sufyani. The problem with that is the Dajjal will not have yet appeared when the Sufyani is killed ... and Jesus would not return to earth with the Dajjal not yet appeared, since the Dajjal is the false prophet. So it must be the Mahdi who kills the Sufyani. Then he (the Mahdi) will establish a caliphate throughout the Middle East and will war with a Roman emperor (a powerful Western leader) during the time of Dajjal.

From a base 7 perspective, the key to the timing of when the Mahdi reveals himself and acts lies in the only other major figure in recent history to come out of Saudi Arabia ... but turned out to be anything other than the Mahdi: the late Osama bin Laden. He first appeared to the world via the media in February 1997 when he was interviewed by Christiane Amanpour on CNN. As I said, Bin Laden was anything but the Mahdi, but he was a Saudi with family roots in Yemen. Thus, he sets a precedent for the coming of the Mahdi ... in February 2018. This date is uncomfortably close to the October 2017 date, four months earlier, of the appearance of Betelgeuse supernova as the star in Islamic prophecy. The star heralds the death of Sufyani and the rise to power of Mahdi.

In what manner the Mahdi chooses to appear to the world is unknown at this time. And it must be remembered that all these figures who appear to be the actual figures of prophecy may, instead, be merely archetypes. Only those with the power of discernment will know for sure which is the case ... until key events occur to which there can be no doubts.


UPDATE (8/12/17): Today I have added Quatrain 5.55 by Nostradamus to the top of this prediction. I have long felt since I was made aware of the Sufyani and al-Mahdi prophecies, that Quatrain 5.55 (translated beneath the title above) was likely about the al-Mahdi himself. However, the time of his appearance is closely linked to the Sufyani figure who precedes him, wages war throughout the Middle East, and is ultimately defeated and executed by him when the conflict moves north into the nations of the former Byzantine Empire. It is far less likely at this time that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and ISIS (formerly the IS caliphate) are this Sufyani. Al-Baghdadi failed to fulfill most of what the Sufyani prophecy details will happen ... and indeed may already be dead. No Sufyani has actually appeared and established a caliphate that included virtually ALL of the Levant, including a large part of Turkey and all of Egypt. Nor did one slaughter 100,000 people during a capture of Baghdad, nor did one move against the nations of Iran and Afghanistan and invade a part of Saudi Arabia. Yes, there is time for that to happen still between now and February 2018 ... and with a major nuclear war with North Korea possibly looming on the horizon, larger war in the Middle East may become possible, especially if the US is no longer able to handle things in Syria and Iraq. ISIS could recoup their their losses and become powerful again ... and proceed to fulfill prophecy. Yes, it could still happen. But as I mention above, al-Baghdadi or ISIS strkes me more as an archetype for something that will happen much later in the future. If history goes as far as Nostradamus claims in his Epistle to Henry II ... as far ahead as 2242-43 AD ... then my assessment of the Mahdi and where one might find him in the Book of Daniel would be the final Arab figure Daniel called "the king of the south." Either way, Quatrain 5.55 is very relevant.

Base 7 Alert: 2004 Terrorist Attack in Madrid Revisited in Barcelona


Image from the bombing in MadridISIS strikes in Barcelona


March 11, 2004: The 2004 Madrid train bombings (image upper left)

The 2004 Madrid train bombings (also known in Spain as 11-M) were nearly simultaneous, coordinated bombings against the Cercanías commuter train system of Madrid, Spain, on the morning of 11 March 2004 – three days before Spain's general elections. It was also 2 1/2 years or 911 days after 9/11. The explosions killed 192 people and injured around 2,000. The official investigation by the Spanish judiciary found that the attacks were directed by an al-Qaeda-inspired terrorist cell, although no direct al-Qaeda participation has been established. Though they had no role in the planning or implementation, the Spanish miners who sold the explosives to the terrorists were also arrested ...


August 17, 2017: ISIS attack in Barcelona (image upper right)

At least 13 people were reported dead and dozens others injured following the terrorist attack in Spanish city of Barcelona on Thursday afternoon, triggering severe condemnation from the European Union (EU) leaders. The attack happened at around 17:00 hours local time when a man drove a white van at high speed onto the city's famous Las Ramblas. At the time of the attack, the area was packed with people, many of them tourists.


COMMENTS (8/18/17): This should have happened, if it was going to happen at all, 14 (2 x 7) years after the Madrid attack. The vector would have been for March 2018. Instead the event has occurred seven months premature in August 2017. ISIS is being blamed for Thursday's attack in Barcelona. Not all my 2018 predictions are up yet; in this case there was no time. Had it been posted, I'd be considering this a prediction fulfilled prematurely. There is a remote chance another terrorist attack may occur in Spain sometime near March 2018, possibly worse than this one was, but this most likely was the event happening early.

This is a base 7 alert, not a prediction fulfilled. The Barcelona terror attack proves that base 7 is a phenomenon that will go on repeating historical events whether I predict them or not, until there is an end to human and world history.

Mass Suicide by Cult Over Space Aliens


Mass suicide in March 2018?


NEW PREDICTION: 9/28/16 -- Base 7 dating: March 2018.

Text added 8/8/17: There should probably be a "?" (question mark) after "Space Aliens" in the title. The last time around, 2011, I characterized such a "mass suicide" as being a "phony Rapture" ... that is to say, no one died but the threat of a Rapture was indeed put in place by a minister named Harold Camping. On the day of reckoning, all over US cities discarded clothes were found in parks and other open places. The clothes were all part of a nationwide gag to make it look like a "rapture" had whisked people right out of their clothes into the heavens above. When the rapture failed to truly materialize, this placed Camping on everyone's false prophet list.

Six years earlier, in 2005, a year late as it should have happened in 2004, something far more sinister almost did happen. The Valentine's Day Suicide Party, organized over the Internet by Gerald Krein of Klamath Falls, Oregon, actually DID attract 32 young women, three of who planned to bring their children to die. The total number of deaths would have been 39. What had they all agreed to? A mass sex orgy during which each participant would afterwards hang herself naked from a large beam in a nearby abandoned warehouse, Krein included. Some of the women planned on hanging themselves at home at the appointed time, a few possibly on webcam. Police were tipped off by a woman pretending to be interested in Krein's planned party and detained several women who were reportedly on their way to Klamath Falls, contacting a number of others. We know very little about what exactly happened regarding police contacting the women who had shown genuine interest in committing mass suicide. When the story broke, the details were not known. I found out the details a day later listening to a local classic rock station in my car sipping on a coke ... blurted out by an excited disk jockey! When I got home and online the news was all over the place. Why was this so important? You have to ask yourself what kind of person would AGREE to do something like this ... let alone 32 adult women, a few who were also willing to sacrifice their small and teenage children.

39 was also a very important number to me. It was the number of the members of a space cult called Heaven's Gate who all committed suicide by taking poison in March 1997 ... their leader Marshall Applewhite included. This may have been the most bizarre cult-related mass suicide in US history to this day.

Of course if the Valentine's Day Suicide Party had actually happened instead of being prevented by tipped off police, I doubt such an event would still not be talked about. One woman drowned her daughter and then hanged herself on Valentine's Day around the time the party was supposed to take place. Police insisted to news people that her case was not in any way connected to what had been planned. Of course they would say that anyway even if the case was related. We'll never really know, will we? People to this day do not seem to understand the implications of this ... what does it say about human beings in our modern society, and in particular what does it say about so many females who were actually willing to end their lives in such a shocking manner? It made me pay more attention to the subject of suicide ... and in particular this kind of suicide which seems to have been on an increase ever since. What are we sweeping under the carpet when we censor such news today? Instead of debate and discussion, heads turn the other way and pretend these things do not happen!

I don't know what is going to happen this time around in March 2018 (or else sometime around March 2019 if the historical repetition is late again). There's only Heaven's Gate, the aborted Valentine's Day Suicide Party, and the Phony Rapture to use as precedents. But two out of three dealt with spiritual beings from outer space or just plain spiritual beings in heaven. The other one would have been carnal, kinky, and shocking ... and the times if anything are as bad as they were then if not worse. The odds though are that space or heaven will be involved this time around, and the number of victims may be ... we'll say 32 to 39 again ... or as high as a few billion.

Civil War in Albania, Macedonia Threatened

Text added 7/30/17: If protests in Albania are renewed in January 2018, or even sooner, it may develop into something much worse: a civil war. Not only that, but there is danger that such a civil conflict could spread into Macedonia, renewing the brief civil war it fought in 2001. This may be part of the troubles in the Balkans that prophets warn precede World War III.

Another Spectacular Comet In the Heavens


Major comet in 2018? Dream on ...


NEW PREDICTION: 9/28/16 -- Base 7 dating: April 2018.

Text added 12/27/17: We failed to have a Hyakutake-type comet event in 2017 like we did in 1996, so it is less likely we will have a Hale-Bopp event like we did in 1997. But you never know. In March and April of 1962, a year like 1997 which is also aligned with 2018 using the base 7 system, there was Comet Seki-Lines. It was a very bright comet which peaked in magnitude in April 1962 low in the western evening twilight. Hale-Bopp was also a western twilight comet, but was visible for a much longer period of time than Seki-Lines. Unlike Hale-Bopp, which had a bright comet predecessor a year earlier called Hyakutake, Seki-Lines had none in 1961. In fact the last bright comet before 1962 was Comet Arend-Roland in 1957. So, yes ... a bright comet could emerge out of nowhere around April 2018. We'll have to see. Otherwise ... dream on.

Serial Killer Roams the U.S., Slaying Many Victims


A new Zodiac killer??


NEW PREDICTION: 9/28/16 -- Base 7 dating: April 2018.

Text added 12/27/17: This serial killer may even make his or her way to the murder of a major celebrity, possibly a famous actor or actress by July or August 2018. That will be considered a seperate prediction which I have yet to post. If for some reason I don't post it, you have read it here. And it will then be here that the news event will appear if it should come to pass and not be prevented, otherwise it will be at the other prediction's location.

This killer will not be regional but will likely roam nationwide ... from one side of the country to the other, west to east and north to south (or vice versa). The killer will appear to escape once chase is given by authorities (once clue of location is established), but will likely be tracked down and killed or commit suicide. But it is possible the slayer will never be caught or identified. Modus operandi is unknown. Motives are unknown. Nature and sex of victims not yet known. Could be mixed sexes like victims of Son of Sam, hard to say. It will be a very tense and anxious summer although first murders should occur around April or sooner. It is even possible the first victim or victims have already been murdered this very month (December 2017)!

Alois Irlmaier ~

During the war the big darkness comes, which last 72 hours. It will become dark at a day during the war. Then a hail impact, consisting of lightning and thunder, breaks out and an earthquake vibrates the earth. Please do not go out of the house at this time. The lights do not burn, except candle light, the current stops. Who inhales the dust, gets a cramp and dies. Do not open the windows, cover it completely with black paper. All open-standing water become poisonous and also all open-standing meals, which are not in locked doses. Also no meals in glasses, because they would not cover it up completely. Outside the death by dust goes around, many humans die. After 72 hours everything is over. But again: Do not go out of the house, do not look out of the windows, and keep the candle light burning. And pray. Overnight there will die more humans than in the two world wars before. Do not open the windows during the 72 hours. The rivers will have so few water that you can easily pass them. The cattle falls, the grass becomes yellow and dry, the humans will become quite yellow and black. The wind drives the clouds of death off to the east.


Three days of darkness begins with dim copper clouds


Marie Dehenny de la Faudais ~

There will be three days of continuous darkness. During this fearful darkness only candles which have been blessed will burn. One candle will last for three days, but in the houses of the impious they will not burn. During these three days demons will appear in horrible and nauseating forms and will make the air resound with appalling blasphemies. Rays and flashes will penetrate through the streets at an unusual time of the year. The sea will reverse in foamy waves upon the Earth. Indeed, our planet will become one huge cemetery. The bodies of the impious as well as with those of the just will cover the soil. The famine which will follow will be enormous; all the vegetation of the earth will be destroyed as also will be three-fourths of mankind. The crisis will come suddenly and the disaster will be universal.


Marie Jehannet ~

There will a three-day Darkness in the entirety of nature; during the three Nights and two Days there will be an uninterrupted night. The lit Candles will be all the Light to be had. A single candle will last for three Days. Lightning will smash into those homes, but they will not wipe out the light of the candles. Neither the wind nor the storm nor earthquake will destroy the lighted candles. But in the Houses of the Godless and those who have not found God through all this, there will be bad spirits in the most horrible configurations imaginable and they will make the strangest sounds ever heard. Red clouds like blood will move across the heavens. The cracking and thunder will shake the Earth. Unbelievable lightning will shake the streets in a way that has never been seen. The Earth will shake to its Foundation. The Water of the Ocean will foam over the Land and will be tossed over the embankment. And the entire Earth will become a Cemetery. The Famine will then be great. This Crisis will happen very quickly, and the Punishment will be the same all over the World.


NEW PREDICTION: 9/29/15 -- May 2018. All of my "predictions" (a term I apply quite loosely) are based on some sort of historical precedent. How likely a variation of the event will repeat again, or repeat again in a nearly exact manner, depends on the severity or magnitude of the precedent and also if there have already been repetitions of the initial event in the recent past. Odds also increase if there is a major prophecy by someone like Edgar Cayce, Nostradamus, Alois Irlmaier, and others anticipating a future worst-case scenario that might be a variation of the event I project.

There are numerous Catholic prophecies concerning something known as "the three days of darkness." You will find the actual precedent for such an event in the Old Testament of the Bible, occurring at the time of Exodus when Egypt was smitten by a plague of darkness for three days. Whether this is the inspiration for the prophecies or something else is, a future "three days of darkness" that will be worldwide is a recurring prophetic theme found in Catholic dogma. Of all prophets who explicated it best, Alois Irlmaier is among those at the top of the list. But the prophets of the three days of darkness are many, and include Catholic monks and nuns (such as Marie Dehenny de la Faudais and Marie Jehannet above) and a number of Christian mystics.

In his article, A PRECISE RECORD OF THE EXODUS EVENTS (ABSOLUTE DATES OF THE EXODUS EVENTS), Flavio Barbiero establishes through a series of thorough scientific and historical analyses that the three days of darkness in Egypt (the "ninth plague") began on 16 May 1208 B.C. If true, my job becomes purely mathematical, although it is important to subtract one year from the calculation since there was never a year 0 (zero). The number we end up adding to 1208 BC is 3227. 3227 years divided by 7 = 461 (and, of course, it is a whole number we expect to find). If we add 3227 to -1208 we arrive at the year 2019. We must then subtract 1 year from that because there was never a year 0. Thus, in calendar terms, -1208 + 3227 actually = 2018. Thus we have the projected date of May 2018.

My other precedent for such an event repeating on the base 7 timeline estabished by 1208 BC is far more recent. It too fell in the month of May, making this one very scary case of base 7 repetition. The date was May 19, 1780, and the region affected by a mysterious darkness was the entirety of New England and portions of Canada. 1780 is on this same timeline as there are 238 (7 x 34) years between 1780 and 2018. Note also the month is exactly the same and the day is only three days in variance: May 16, 1208 BC and May 19, 1780 AD.


New England's Dark Day

New England's Dark Day refers to an event that occurred on May 19, 1780, when an unusual darkening of the day sky was observed over the New England states and parts of Canada. The primary cause of the event is believed to have been a combination of smoke from forest fires, a thick fog, and cloud cover. The darkness was so complete that candles were required from noon on. It did not disperse until the middle of the next night. According to Professor Samuel Williams of Harvard College, the darkness was seen at least as far north as Portland, Maine, and extended southwards to New Jersey. The darkness was not witnessed in Pennsylvania.

The earliest report of the darkness came from Rupert, New York, where the sun was already obscured at sunrise. Professor Samuel Williams observed from Cambridge, Massachusetts, "This extraordinary darkness came on between the hours of 10 and 11 am and continued till the middle of the next night." Reverend Ebenezer Parkham, of Westborough, Massachusetts, reported peak obscurity to occur "by 12", but did not record the time when the obscuration first arrived. At Harvard College, the obscuration was reported to arrive at 10:30 am, peaking at 12:45 pm, and abating by 1:10 pm, but a heavy overcast remained for the rest of the day. The obscuration was reported to have reached Barnstable, Massachusetts, by 2:00 pm, with peak obscurity reported to have occurred at 5:30 pm ...

For several days before the Dark Day, the sun as viewed from New England appeared to be red, and the sky appeared yellow. While the darkness was present, soot was observed to be collected in rivers and in rain water, suggesting the presence of smoke. Also, when the night really came in, observers saw the moon colored red. For portions of New England, the morning of May 19, 1780 was characterized by rain, indicating that cloud cover was present.


It must be kept in mind that there is no evidence of there ever being a worldwide period of unnatural darkness, at least not any recorded in history, including the plague of darkness that visited the nation of Egypt. However, prophecy tells us that during the worst part of World War III, global darkness will occur.

This prediction is intimately linked with another one made for January 2016: Unprecedented Flooding or Destruction in Northern Europe. In that prediction I speculate that the Large Hadron Collider at CERN may be involved, causing Norway to completely vanish. I also speculate that the LHC will open an inter-dimensional portal that will allow the Nephilim race of giants known as the Gibborim to enter freely into our world. These creatures, along with the cannibalistic evil spirits known as the Rephaim, already possessing humans to attack human beings since 2012, often in the nude, and with tremendous power, and eat the faces and other parts of their victims, as well as actual demons, will roam the countrysides and cities during the three days of darkness.

While it is strange weapons releasing a fatal dust that will kill most of humanity during this time, the spirits of the Rephaim, Gibborim, and demons may also kill many, even in some cases causing death by fright. Rephaim-possessed human beings, some even resurrected from the dead, might also roam the world as zombies ... yes, there may indeed turn out to be a zombie apocalypse.

In my prediction for January 2016, I emphasize that a later and more dangerous window of opportunity for the terror and destruction in the North to occur may begin in March 2018 ... which is only two months before the base 7 vector for the three days of darkness in May 2018. I do not know if that means we must worry more about this event happening in March 2018 instead of May 2018 or not.

Bear in mind that 2018 is only one year of many on this timeline. The last several were in 1983, 1990, 1997, 2004, and 2011; the next several will be in 2025, 2032, 2039, 2046, and 2053. However, with the drift towards global war becoming increasingly more likely, a man matching the Sufyani of Islamic prophecy loose upon the world, and an iconic actress rising to great prominence who is eerily similar to the woman who appears in Revelation 12 and possibly Jeane Dixon's 1962 vision of Nefertiti, I would say 2018 is without question a year to be wary of ... and to watch.

First Manned Exploration of Mars


One-way trip to Mars: Privately-owned colonies


NOTE (9/30/15): This prediction may seem out of place, but then again, perhaps World War III will be averted or the current situations in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Russia protracted until the 2020s. Or perhaps it will be a last ditch effort made by space agencies to explore and colonize our solar system before global war makes such an endeavor impossible.

And now, the original text of my prediction from May 9, 1999, as it appeared ... and still appears ... on what was at that time the Beyond 2012 page (now renamed the Beyond 2018 page). Eventually, it will be removed from that page. The text of the prediction is not very long.


NEW PREDICTION: 5/9/99 -- It is not impossible that Nostradamus foresaw a manned mission to Mars, but I have yet to see mention of it in his quatrains. Nevertheless, if it is going to happen, it will be some time yet. My projection for this event, should it occur, is July/August 2018.


FOLLOW-UP (9/30/15): On February 27, 2013, a CNN news article reported that a private group, with the aid of NASA, was planning to send two humans into orbit around Mars in 2018, observe it, and return to Earth. This seemingly suggested that my prediction would be fulfilled. The status of the mission remains unknown at this time.

Since then, other plans by other companies have emerged for sending a crew on a one-way mission to Mars where, after a period of possibly several months to a year, their means to survive would terminate and they would die on the planet's surface. Surprisingly, there were a number of a volunteers willing to die young for the sake of the adventure and to make a significant contribution to a space program that would eventually achieve the colonizing of Mars and other worlds. However, plans have since been modified so that the astronauts will instead create a settlement and manage to survive on the Red Planet with new crews and supplies arriving every three-to-five years. The tentative date for the first launch and settlement was, or is, 2023.

The recent discovery a few days ago of flowing water on the Mars surface has scientists rethinking manned missions to the planet. Because of this one discovery, plans to send humans to Mars may now happen much sooner than later according to NASA. Once again, the year 2018 looks like a distinct possibility.

Tragic Death of Female Icon,
A Diana-Like Figure


Nostradamus, Quatrain 3.58 ~

Near the Rhine from the Noricum Mountains, born one great of the people, too tardily come.
He will defend Sarmatia and the Pannonians, one will not know what became of him.


Since the deaths of Marilyn Monroe and Sharon Tate, the stakes have become much higher


NEW PREDICTION: 9/15/15 -- August/September 2018. Since the tragic death of Princess Diana, the last 18 years have made it fairly obvious that what was once an actress-only base 7 timeline for premature death is no longer. The first indication that this was likely changing actually occurred a little over 14 years before the crash that killed Princess Diana when former actress Grace Kelly, by September 1982 Princess Grace of Monaco, died in a car crash after suffering a stroke while driving. It was almost 1983, what should have been the actual target year.

When 1990 came around, no major actress similar to the likes of a Thelma Todd, Carole Lombard, Carole Landis, Marilyn Monroe, or Sharon Tate died. Two well-loved but lesser known actresses Susan Oliver and Jill Ireland did die a day apart from cancer that year, and they died young.

The next Marilyn would end up being Diana, the Princess of Wales, in August 1997 ... a woman famed for her beauty and for her humanitarian work.

How or why did this trend change to include Diana? Technically, because Princess Grace was, after all, originally the very famous American actress Grace Kelly. It was because of Grace Kelly's becoming a princess, I believe, that Princess Diana, was set up to become the next prominent victim. Although Diana never acted, she was endlessly photographed and videotaped for glamour and fashion news and magazines, and also began doing some real modelling in the final months of her life. At the time of her tragic death she was the most famous and most popular woman in the entire world.

Seven years later, in 2004, many close calls for actresses occurred, Shelley Long being most well-known of the group. Long came very close to ending up exactly like Carole Landis or Marilyn Monroe, proving that the past influence that killed them and others on the timeline was still very much alive and highly active.

And in 2011, there was instead a return to the type of event that occurred in 1976 when famous socialite Priscilla Davis was almost murdered during an attack that left her boyfriend Stan Farr and her daughter Andrea Wilborn dead, and in 1983 when another famed socialite, model Vicki Morgan, was the victim of a most sensational and brutal murder. The 2011 event was the bizarre and highly suspicious hanging death of Rebecca Zahau, girlfriend of well-known CEO Jonah Shacknai. Today it is regarded as one of the strangest, most spectacular, and possibly unsolved homicides of a woman in history, up there on the list with the Black Dahlia and Lana Clarkson. Written off as a suicide, as if the nearly impossible manner of her carrying out such an act in such a public fashion was not enough (she was found hanging outside, in clear view to passersby, from a window), an additionally kinky ingredient of her being completely naked was added.

I don't like dredging up that case much anymore as it was doted on enough at the time it happened. But some background needs to be in place. It is important to note that a major actress has not succumbed tragically on this timeline since the heinous murder of Sharon Tate in 1969, unless we include former actress Grace Kelly, dying in her later role as Princess of Monaco in late 1982. Otherwise, it has all been minor actress tragedies (1990), close calls (2004 and 2011), and scandalous socialite murders (1976, 1983, and 2011).

It seems to me that if there is a danger to anyone in 2018, it would have to be someone who comes in close to being another Princess Diana, and possibly one who is an actress. And there is only one person I can think of who fits that description:


Angelina Jolie is most admired woman in the world! Director, humanitarian and mother-of-six beat Malala Yousafzai, Hillary Clinton and the QUEEN in global poll - February 2, 2015.

Angelina Jolie“Unbroken” director Jolie topped the list of females on the list, with education activist Malala Yousafzai coming in second and Clinton placing third. The first lady landed in the fifth spot, behind Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. Singer Celine Dion, Oprah Winfrey and actress Julia Roberts rounded out the top contenders.

Angelina Jolie has beaten the likes of Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, Hillary Clinton and even the Queen to be named the most admired woman in the world. According to a new poll of 25,000 people, the actress, director, mother-of-six and UN special envoy was most worthy of respect internationally. However, the YouGov study found that Brits still voted Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II into the top spot nationally - just pushing Judi Dench into second place. Angelina, 39, has just directed Unbroken, a critically-acclaimed film about the Second World War and has been travelling around the world visiting war zones since 2001.

Angelina Jolie, Bill Gates more admired than Clinton, Obama - February 2, 2015.

Angelina Jolie is more admired around the world than Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama, according to a new survey. YouGov, a market research firm, polled to find out the world's most admired men and women, and released their analysis over the weekend.


Ms. Jolie, one of the world's most famous actresses and UN ambassadors, known just as well for her humanitarian and charity work as Princess Diana was, is also very vocal about world affairs. Most recently, this month in fact, she has gone on the offensive against the notorious terrorist caliphate known as Islamic State (or ISIS) in a very public way.


Angelina Jolie warns ISIS using rape as weapon of war on unprecedented scale - September 9, 2015.

Angelina Jolie warns ISIS using rape as weapon of war on unprecedented scaleLONDON - Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie warned on Tuesday that ISIS was using rape as a weapon of war on a scale never seen before and called for greater action against those responsible. Jolie, a special envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and active campaigner against the use of sexual violence in conflict, said ISIS was using rape as a "policy" and urged a "very strong response".

Thousands of women and girls have been abducted, raped and sold into sexual slavery by Islamic State since the militant group declared a caliphate across swathes of Syria and Iraq last summer, according to the United Nations and rights groups. "The most aggressive terrorist group in the world today ...(is) using (rape) as a center point of their terror and their way of destroying communities and families," she told a British parliamentary committee on Tuesday.

Oscar-winning Jolie, who joined forces with former British foreign secretary William Hague in 2012 to launch an initiative to prevent sexual violence in conflict, spoke about girls she had met in war zones who had been raped. This included a 13-year-old Iraqi girl whom she said was raped repeatedly along with her friends and sold for 26 pounds sterling($40).

As part of their campaign against sex crimes in war, Jolie and Hague in 2013 launched a declaration pledging to pursue those responsible and provide justice and safety for victims that has been signed by more than 150 nations.

Speaking at a sexual violence in war committee in the British parliamentary to give evidence on the impact of the three-year old initiative, Jolie said Islamic State was dictating rape "as a policy" in Syria and Iraq. "This is beyond something we have seen before," Jolie said. "They are saying: "You should do this, this is the way to build a society, we ask you to rape". We really have to have a very strong response at this time to this particular group."

Jolie's link-up with Hague was sparked by her 2011 directorial debut "In the Land of Blood and Honey" that was set against the backdrop of the 1992-95 Bosnian war in which an estimated 20,000 women were believed to have been raped.

Angelina Jolie: ISIS’s No. 1 Enemy in Hollywood - September 9, 2015.

Angelina Jolie is doing more than anyone else in Hollywood to speak out against ISIS and sexual violence in Syria and Iraq. The 40-year-old actress and UNHCR special envoy testified before British Parliament on Tuesday, discussing how ISIS has used rape as a form of “policy” in unprecedented ways.

Earlier this year, Jolie, along with her UN colleagues, visited displaced Iraqis and Syrian refugees in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, her fifth visit to Iraq and sixth to Syrian refugees. “It is shocking to see how the humanitarian situation in Iraq has deteriorated since my last visit [in 2012],” she said in a statement. “Nothing can prepare you for the horrific stories of these survivors of kidnap, abuse, and exploitation and to see how they cannot all get the urgent help they need and deserve…The war in Syria is at the root of so many of the problems faced here in Iraq and across the region. There is an urgent need for international leadership to break the cycle of violence in Syria.”

And last April, Jolie used her time briefing the UN Security Council to criticize its lack of action to protect innocent Syrians from the Assad regime and ISIS. “We cannot look at Syria, and the evil that has arisen from the ashes of indecision, and think this is not the lowest point in the world’s inability to protect and defend the innocent,” Jolie said.


ISIS, thus far, has said nothing publically about Jolie's remarks or threatened her. But I fear that day may well come.

I am not saying, at this point in time, that the danger to Angelina Jolie in 2018 will come from ISIS ... but it could. My initial concern is that, like Princess Grace and Princess Diana, Angelina Jolie is likely to fall victim to a fatal accident, probably in a car or plane. As to whether it might actually be an accident is something that may well be long debated if it happens.

But the point of posting this is to see that it DOESN'T happen.

ISIS is an abomination, and what it has done to both men and women is frightening and repulsive. They are capable of anything.

One can see that although Angelina Jolie is not royalty as was Grace Kelly and Princess Diana, she is a major global diplomat and humanitarian, something that Princess Diana also was. That is enough, in my opinion, to place her in some sort of danger when August/September 2018 rolls around.


Revelation 12

One part of the world Princess Diana did not visit as often as she did other places in Africa, Asia, and the Balkans during and following the Bosnian civil war was the Middle East. Her major link to that region was the man she was dating at the time of her death: Egyptian multimillionaire and playboy, Dodi al-Fayed. Rumors persist that it was discovered during a post-mortem that Diana had been pregnant with a male child by Dodi.


Dodi Al Fayed and Princess Diana in summer of 1997Princess Diana Pregnant At Time Of Her Death, New Evidence Suggests

September 22, 2014 | The Inquisitr

Princess Diana was reportedly pregnant at the time of her fatal car crash, a fact that sources say was covered up for years after her death. There have been past rumors of a pregnancy for Princess Di, and in this week’s issue of Globe magazine, a source claimed that she was indeed pregnant with boyfriend Dody Fayed’s baby when she died in 1997.

The report follows up past rumors that Princess Diana was carrying her third child at the time of her death. Last year, a doctor in Paris who treated Princess Di after her accident said he saw a six- to 10-week-old fetus. In a book called The Princess Diana Conspiracy, radiologist Dr. Elizabeth Dion and a nurse both claimed to have seen the unborn baby.

The book’s author, Alan Power, claims that Diana’s body was then hastily and illegally embalmed to cover up the pregnancy. Princess Diana was killed along with Fayed in a car crash in Paris in August of that year, an accident that remains the subject of much controversy. Many, including Fayed’s own father, believe that the crash was orchestrated by British intelligence forces to prevent her from marrying a Muslim man.

Earlier this year, the British government released a heavily redacted official report on her death, one that created even more conspiracy theories. Al Fayed, Egyptian billionaire and Dodi’s father, said he believes his son’s religious background was the reason he was killed. “This is not an accident,” he reportedly said shortly after learning of the crash. “It is a plot, an assassination.” Alan Power also believes the crash that killed Diana was no accident. “It established a motive for murder and explained Diana’s illegal and speedy embalming,” he said. If it’s true that Princess Diana was pregnant at the time of her death, that would likely add even more fuel to the conspiracy theories about her fatal crash.


The fetus, of course, died ... if there actually was one. What this has to do, or I should say almost had to do, with the prophecy in Revelation, Chapter 12, verses 1 to 6, will become quite obvious:

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Diana was pursued and killed. If she was pregnant, she failed to fulfill the prophecy. In this instance, the red dragon won. The red dragon, by the way, is the symbol for Wales ... Diana was the Princess of Wales. Diana was the name of the Roman moon goddess, also known as Artemis in the Greek. The sun stands for the sun god Apollo.

I believe Revelation 12 is linked to the vision Jeane Dixon had in 1962 concerning the birth of a future messiah.

Angelina Jolie as CleopatraDixon sees a man and woman whom she compares to the ancient Egyptian queen Nefertiti and her husband, an important monothiestic, sun-worshipping Pharoah. She does not name the pharoah, but it is clear he can only be Akhnaten, Nefertiti's husband. The sun itself is a golden ball, illuminating the earth with a dazzling brightness and below it are the desert sands and a pyramid. On the sands, millions of adoring people await what is to come. Nefertiti is holding a newly-born baby in her arms. Then the couple advance towards the multitudes and thrust forth the baby, as if offering it to the entire world. The vision changes and the baby grows to be a man who is adored by the entire planet. The Pharoah disappears under the brightness of the sun, and the woman retreats into the past, stops to drink from a brown jug, and is stabbed in the back by an unseen assailant. Dixon hears her death scream which quickly dissipates.

Revelation 12 tells us that the woman "is clothed with the sun." Nefertiti, along with her husband, was also a sun worshipper. When both appear in Jeane Dixon's vision, they materialize from out of the brightness of the sun. Dixon does not make mention of Nefertiti also being connected to the moon, but it doesn't mean there is no linkage. In the case of Princess Diana, if she had been this latter day Nefertiti, "the moon under her feet" passage from Revelation 12 would simply be a way of identifying her name, Diana, with the moon goddess of the same name. Some believe Nostradamus identified the Egyptian "prince," Dodi al-Fayed, as "the dead Apollo" in one quatrain. Clearly, Diana and Dodi came very close to fulfilling the prophecy of Revelation 12, and if there had been a child, the vision experienced by Jeane Dixon.

Again, aside from her connection to Dodi, Diana was not often to be found in the desert nations of the Middle East. However, as we have already seen in the article above concerning ISIS, Angelina Jolie is. She has been in Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt.

Jolie also is to play the role of Cleopatra in an upcoming movie to be filmed in 2016 with a tentative projected release either late in the year or in 2017. Then again, the film may never get made. In any case, there are definite ties to Egypt there. Husband Brad Pitt and Angelina have spent much time in that country since June 2012.

Jolie had both ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed. For her to become pregnant would require a miracle. Yet, such miracles do happen and make major news when they do. Such a miracle child would without question have the attention of the entire planet.

The wilderness mentioned in Revelation 12 simply means the places where there are desert sands and scant vegetation. Thus, the woman will be hidden in the desert for a period of 1,260 days: 42 months (3 1/2 years). Still, if Dixon's vision is related to Revelation 12, she will be murdered, stabbed in the back by an assailant.

Thus, if Angelina Jolie is the woman of Revelation 12, and the dragon in this case represents an antichrist system, possibly either the Sufyani (ISIS) or the Dajjal of Islamic prophecy, she will be attacked but escape in August/September 2018, only to be captured and killed 42 months later ... in February/March 2022.

Again, this is a big "if" that Angelina Jolie is the woman of Revelation 12. Still it is not something to be entirely dismissed. And in any event for the other reasons given above the Revelation 12 section, I believe she is the most likely female icon to be in danger of death in 2018.


What will happen if this kind of event is prevented? Think in terms of the film series, Final Destination.

Unfortunately, it's a lot like the Final Destination movies ... another trend from the timeline will likely be substituted. This could mean another scandalous socialite murder like Vicki Morgan's or Rebecca Zahau's; another series of close calls terminating in a near-tragic event similar to what almost happened to actress Shelley Long in 2004; the premature deaths (probably due to an illness like cancer) of several moderately successful actresses in middle age similar to 1990; the tragic death of a male actor (which also occurs infrequently on this timeline, James Dean in 1955, Sal Mineo in 1976, and Christopher Reeve in 2004) ... or else a return to the shocking suicides, accidental deaths, or heinous murders that plagued eleven major actresses and one famous female dancer/choreographer every seven years without fail from 1899 until 1969.

A review of the twelve names:

Kitty Melrose

Jennie Worrell (American burlesque actress, August 1899, burned to death), Georgia Cayvan (American stage actress, November 1906, untimely death from illness caused from a botched operation), Kitty Melrose (British stage actress and singer, adjacent for 1913, June 1912, suicide by oven gas inhalation), Olive Thomas Pickford (September 1920, accidental poisoning - suspicious), Isadora Duncan (September 1927 - accidentally strangled by scarf caught in spokes of car tire), Thelma Todd (adjacent for 1934, December 1935, carbon monoxide poisoning - suspicious), Carole Lombard (adjacent for 1941, January 1942, plane crash), Carole Landis (July 1948, suicide by drugs overdose), Ona Munson (February 1955, suicide by drugs overdose), Marilyn Monroe (August 1962, suicide by drugs overdose - suspicious), Judy Garland (June 1969, accidental drugs overdose) and Sharon Tate (August 1969, hanged and stabbed to death - homicide).

Sharon Tate

It is quite possible that singer and occasional feature film actress Whitney Houston died due to this timeline a few months late in February 2012. Like actress Carole Lombard who died in a plane crash seventy (7 x 10) years earlier in January 1942, just missing the September 1941 window of opportunity by four months, Whitney Houston's deliberate drugs overdose/drowning death on February 11, 2012 missed the target period of August/September 2011 by five months. Also, and possibly more than ironically, the apparent suicide of singer Whitney Houston occurred 49 (7 x 7) years to the very day after the suicide by oven gas inhalation of celebrated female poet Sylvia Plath on February 11, 1963. Plath's was the same method of suicide taken by actress and singer Kitty Melrose in 1912. It is possible that Sylvia Plath's death was a late repeat for what was then an August 1962 vector, one that did bring about the overdose death of actress Marilyn Monroe.

Thus, it is possible that the doomed destiny of Sylvia Plath, sometimes called the Marilyn Monroe of the poetry world, was actually linked to that of Monroe's, occurring six months later. This would explain why there have been no base 7 repetitions of Sylvia Plath's suicide on a 1963 timeline ... except for Whitney Houston's suicide, which was itself likely a late realization of what was supposed to have happened in August or September 2011.


UPDATE (12/28/17): I think the above projection remains pretty much unchanged. Angelina Jolie (age 42) is possibly the most popular female icon living today. But if we do move away from comparisons between herself and Princess Diana and lean more in a Marilyn Monroe direction we have the following: Jennifer Lawrence (age 27), Margot Robbie (age 27), Scarlett Johannson (age 33), Naomi Watts (age 49), Ashley Judd (age 50 in April), and Monica Bellucci (age 53).

Kim Jong-un and Fidel Castro: "two peas in a pod" U.S. Naval blockade of North Korea Donald Trump-John F. Kennedy


NEW PREDICTION: 12/28/17 -- October 2018. I'm sure many of you thought we already have had a "Korean missile crisis" ... or are having one now. But what we have had is merely a warm-up. If you have noted the above prediction concerning the death of a female icon, a major celebrity, then you are also aware that the prediction is based not only on the tragic death of Princess Diana in 1997, but also those of actresses Marilyn Monroe (1962) and Sharon Tate (1969). The question is what kind of year will 2018 be like? Most probably a composite of those three years, 1962, 1969, and 1997, and others such as 1983 and 1990. But which will dominate in the autumn?

The answer may lie in "what kind of year has 2017 been like?" Has it been like 1961 in any respects? In terms of America and a first term presidency, 2017 could only be like either 1961 or 1989 ... or else throw us way back to 1933. We can certainly dismiss the latter proposition: Donald Trump is no Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And in modern terms he is definitely no George Herbert Walker Bush either. Besides Bush was vice president under Ronald Reagan prior to his election in 1988. Trump never held political office until his election.

Is Donald Trump then like the only other remaining comparison on the base 7 timeline ... John F. Kennedy? Yes and no. Definitely no in terms of popularity at this time. Kennedy was liked by more of the American public in 1961 than Trump has been in 2017. Nor was Kennedy plagued by scandals as Trump has been since the 2016 campaign.

However, Kennedy defeated the favorite, incumbent vice president Richard Nixon, in the close and contentious 1960 election much as Trump defeated former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in 2016. Like Kennedy's call to put a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s, Trump wants a Mars mission in place within the next ten years or sooner. Trump's economic optimism and policies are practically the same as Kennedy's and may result in anywhere from 4% to 6% annual growth. First Lady Melania Trump is possibly the most popular and glamorous First Lady the country has seen since Jacqueline Kennedy.


Khrushchev and Xi Kim Jong-un has threatened the US with nuclear war Nuclear war courtesy of the Russian Federation's two Vladimirs


The major dynamic that comes closest to matching Trump with Kennedy is Trump's excessively hostile approach towards North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and the dangerous nuclear military program he has sanctioned. It definitely reminds one of Kennedy's rancorous relations with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1961.

But while repetitive years can be similar in nature, they are rarely if ever exactly the same. There was nothing similar to "the Bay of Pigs" in 2017. However, there have been very public, concrete threats uttered by Trump of total annihilation of North Korea if Kim steps way out of line with his ICBM and nuclear testing and brings harm to key allies in the region or appears to be moving in the direction of fulfilling his threats to attack the mainland United States with nuclear warheads if provoked militarily. Trump has been vilified by the news media for making such threats, but his verbosity is technically equal to any an average American might easily make if he or she felt threatened by North Korean nuclear-tipped ICBMs.

Thus, if 2017 has been anything like 1961 due to the intense hatred the US president has against a sworn enemy of the United States, Kim Jong-un, it is not hard to visualize what a 1962-style nuclear crisis would look like. It is obvious that despite Kim's nuclear military capability, he has some years to go before he has the actual ability to destroy a country like the U.S. Fidel Castro had no such capability in 1962 ... until the Soviet Union began sending missiles to Cuba, triggering the Cuban Missile Crisis.

So Kim has them in small numbers; Castro had none of his own. One important difference. The dynamic that should worry us all is what happens if Kim 1) explodes a hydrogen bomb above the Pacific Ocean or 2) takes military action, even on a limited scale, against a US ally and couples such action with threats of using nuclear weapons against Guam, Japan, South Korea, or US naval forces in the Pacific if there is any military response by Donald Trump.

One possible military action would be a naval blockade of North Korea.

It is not Kim we need worry about in this modern-day 'Cuban Missile Crisis in the Pacific' scenario. Rather, it is the huge nuclear power who decides to support Kim if threatened by US military action. The likeliest major nuclear power that would support Kim Jong-un if threatened by US attack is China. Thus, we would have President Xi Jinping in the role of a Chinese version of Nikita Khrushchev. China has the ability to destroy nearly all of the United States.

However, it could be even worse. In addition to China, it may well be the Russian Federation under the rule of Vladimir Putin who repeats history once again. Putin will seek re-election in the March 18, 2018 Russian presidential election and is widely expected to win. Other candidates for 2018 currently are Vladimir Zhirinovsky (who would be even more dangerous than Putin) and Pavel Grudinin. The question then becomes, "will the major nuclear powers back away from the precipice as the US and USSR did in 1962 or will they proceed to carry out the unthinkable: a nuclear world war??"

ALSO: If the "three days of darkness" projection is accurate to the very month, this may well be a spring crisis that turns catastrophic worldwide in May 2018, rather than an autumn October 2018 crisis. Averting this worst case scenario may be key as to when the crisis occurs ... or if it happens at all.


Missile threat alert for Hawaii a false alarm

By Zachary Cohen, CNN

Updated 1920 GMT (0320 HKT) January 13, 2018

Washington (CNN) — An emergency alert notification sent out on Saturday claiming a "ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii" was a false alarm, according to the Hawaii Office of Emergency Management and a tweet from one of the state's Democratic congresswomen.


While the message caused concern on social media, the Hawaii Office of Emergency Management quickly responded on Twitter, saying, "NO missile threat to Hawaii."

Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Administrator Vern Miyagi is headed to the agency's 24-hour operations center to find out why the false alert about a ballistic missile was sent out, according to an email to CNN.

"The warning was a mistake," Miyagi said.

A second emergency alert was sent to phones in Hawaii 38 minutes after the initial message confirming the false alarm.

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard also posted to Twitter, reassuring citizens that she has confirmed with officials that "there is no incoming missile" and told CNN's Jake Tapper the alert was "inadvertent."

Commander David Benham, a spokesman for US Pacific Command confirmed in a statement that there is no threat: "USPACOM has detected no ballistic missile threat to Hawaii," the statement read. "Earlier message was sent in error. State of Hawaii will send out a correction message as soon as possible."

White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters referred all questions about the alert to the Department of Defense.

Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz also took to Twitter on Saturday in the wake of the false alarm.

"There is no missile threat," the Democratic senator tweeted. "It was a false alarm based on a human error. There is nothing more important to Hawaii than professionalizing and fool-proofing this process."

Hawaii Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono echoed that point in her own tweet.

"At a time of heightened tensions, we need to make sure all information released to community is accurate," she wrote.

"We need to get to the bottom of what happened and make sure it never happens again."
