We constructed a postseismic slip (afterslip) distribution model using surface displacement data observed by the GPS Earth Observation Network System (GEONET) for the 2011 off the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake.
Eastward displacements are observed along the Pacific coast from Aomori Prefecture to Chiba Prefecture.
The observed postseismic displacement partly includes crustal deformation due to aftershocks.
A postseismic slip expands in and around the inferred coseismic slip area . In particular, relative large slips are estimated in the northwest and in the south (off Choshi) of the coseismic slip area.
Add this video of the earth moving and bulging in Japan, dutchsinse‘s hypothesis appears to be close to the truth.
In my wanderings, I ran across statements made about Edgar Cayce predicting that Japan would sink into the ocean. I am still searching for the exact prediction, but wanted to get this information out.
Either way, the video above and Dutchsinse’s video is more than a little bit disturbing.
Is anybody hearing about the volcanic eruptions in Japan?

Wayne Madsen went to Chicago recently to do research and investigate Barack Obama, his family and his past. According to Alex Jones, Wayne Madsen has received news through the intelligence community that “the White House is gonna kill him deader than a hammer if he doesn’t shut up.” (3:30) Wayne is currently preparing to leave the country.

If there was ever any doubt in your mind as to whether Mitt Romney is the aristocracy’s pick to replace Obama, try this on for size.
Mitt Romney: “I’m Not Going To Focus On The Fed”
“I think Ben Bernanke is a student of monetary policy; he’s doing as good a job as he thinks he can do,” Romney said when Kudlow asked what kind of job Bernanke is doing. “I’m not going to spend my time going after Ben Bernanke. I’m not going to spend my time focusing on the Federal Reserve.”
We already know why auditing and abolishing the Fed is so important; but what does this say about Romney? Too power-hungry or too dangerously stupid to serve? Has he not been paying attention?
Now, following an act of Congress that has forced the Fed to open its books from the bailout era, this unofficial budget is for the first time becoming at least partially a matter of public record. Staffers in the Senate and the House, whose queries about Fed spending have been rebuffed for nearly a century, are now poring over 21,000 transactions and discovering a host of outrages and lunacies in the “other” budget. It is as though someone sat down and made a list of every individual on earth who actually did not need emergency financial assistance from the United States government, and then handed them the keys to the public treasure. The Fed sent billions in bailout aid to banks in places like Mexico, Bahrain and Bavaria, billions more to a spate of Japanese car companies, more than $2 trillion in loans each to Citigroup and Morgan Stanley, and billions more to a string of lesser millionaires and billionaires with Cayman Islands addresses. “Our jaws are literally dropping as we’re reading this,” says Warren Gunnels, an aide to Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. “Every one of these transactions is outrageous.”
Ron Paul Debate Day Money Bomb, 5.5.2011 (Click to link)
The first nationally televised Republican presidential debate in the 2012 election cycle will be held on May 5, 2011 on Fox News. Because of this, it is imperative to showcase Ron Paul as the leading frontrunner in the race. On May 5, 2011, we will hold an online money bomb in support of Ron Paul for President 2012. A money bomb is a 24-hour fundraising event aimed at dramatically increasing funds for a specific candidate. In November 2007, Ron Paul raised more than $4.2 million in a single day. In December 2007, Ron Paul raised the most money in the history of American politics in a single day, raising more than $6 million; a record that still holds strong to this very day.
Please invite your friends, and tell them that it is essential that we all donate to Ron Paul on May 5, 2011, in preparation for the first nationally televised Republican presidential debate for 2012.
Ron Paul’s run in 2008:
Moderator: If you were president, would you work to phase out the IRS?
Ron Paul: Immediately. And you can only do that if you change our ideas about what the role of government ought to be. If you think that government has to take care of us from cradle to grave, and if you think our government should police the world, and spend hundreds of billions of dollars on a foreign policy that we cannot manage; you can’t get rid of the IRS, but if you want to lower taxes and if you want the government to quit printing the money to come up with the shortfall causing all the inflation, you have to change policy.
One has to love Matt’s captions for his images and links, and I guess the tea party folks weren’t explicit enough for somebody as mentally bankrupt as an international public servant that blames TurboTax for his inability to pay his taxes.
Allow me to spell it out.
STOP SPENDING MONEY MEANS STOP BORROWING!
Our debt is now the second greatest threat to the security of the nation after Barack Obama’s hidden past (can you say blackmail?)
We have been telling these ass-clowns since before Bush bailed out his buddies in the financial sector in September 2008…
(Reuters) – Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Wednesday that Congress will allow the country to borrow more by agreeing to increase the $14.3 trillion debt limit.
“Congress will pass an increase in the debt limit,” Geithner told PBS Newshour.
Republicans have said they are unwilling to raise the debt ceiling without some reforms to the government spending.
Geithner said there were some lawmakers who want to take debt ceiling negotiations “to the brink” and warned that the United States could not take that risk.
“So you want Congress to move as quickly as possible to raise that, and of course, they recognize that they have to do that,” he said.
Treasury has forecast that the limit will be reached by May 16. After that point, Treasury can take emergency measures to avoid hitting the debt ceiling. But those actions will only give the United States about a two-month window before Treasury is unable to issue debt to fund government operations.
