    Amed village, East Bali, Indonesia

    Fears of an imminent eruption on the Indonesian tourist island of Bali have led to the evacuation of an estimated 50,000 people.  The Mount Agung volcano is going to erupt, scientists say.

    Waskita Sutadewa, the spokesman for the disaster mitigation agency in Bali, said people have scattered to all corners of the island and some have crossed to the neighboring island of Lombok. Indonesian authorities raised the volcano’s alert status to the highest level on Friday following a dramatic increase in seismic activity. It last erupted in 1963, killing about 1,100 people.

    Villagers are staying in temporary camps, sports centers, village halls, or with friends and relatives. Some do return to the exclusion zone during the day to tend to their livestock or shift the animals to areas further from the volcano for their safety. Others say they are selling their cows because they don’t know when they’ll be able to return.

    “It’s obviously an awful thing. We want to be out of here just to be safe,” said an Australian woman at Bali’s airport who identified herself as Miriam. National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said hundreds of thousands of face masks will be distributed in Bali as part of government humanitarian assistance that includes thousands of mattresses and blankets. Indonesia is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.

    Government volcanologist Surono, who uses one name, said the feared eruption could be huge and potentially also close airports in East Java and Lombok, according to local media reports. Agung is in the north of the island about 43 miles from the tourist hotspot of Kuta. People have been told to stay at least 6 miles from the crater, but to stay 7.5 miles away when to the north, northeast, southeast, and south-southwest.

    Over the past 5,000 years, Agung has erupted once a century on average and about a quarter of its eruptions have been a similar or stronger strength than 1963. Macquarie University volcanologist Heather Handley said the eruptions in 1843 and 1963 had a Volcanic Explosivity Index of about 5 on a scale where 8 would be the strength of an ancient supervolcano eruption such as Yellowstone in the U.S. or Toba in Indonesia.

    Although officials have said there is no immediate threat to tourists, a significant eruption would force the closure of Bali’s international airport, stranding thousands. The island is famous for its surfing, beaches and its elegant Hindu culture is still safe to visit. Bali’s Ngurah rai International Airport has been operating normally since the alert status for Mount Agung was raised to the highest level on Friday.

    Nearly 5 million tourists visited Bali last year.

      4. Bali airport closed? My oh my! Where will the BIG GREEN MONEY faux global warmers find to hold their next uber luxe, jet setting, zillion dollar “global warming” conference next winter???

      5. This is all biblical. Just birth pains for what is coming. That is my belief.

        Off topic I know and I am sorry. I just want to vent a little. I played football in my youth. I love the game. To me it is the best game ever. Now the spoiled rotten brats who play professional football are going to cause me to give up watching it. I look forward to watching my beloved Redskins every year. This does sadden me as it is somthing I enjoy.

        As a vet I cannot put up with people not standing for the flag. They show there ignorance when they do that. If they feel that this country is so bad then move to another. Currently in this country you can use your freedom to do that. I know this country has many problems and is controlled by a bunch of power hungry, greedy, SOB’s.

        The whole problem in a nut shell is this. This has been the greatest country the world has ever known. It became that way because of the freedom of self reliance. The ability to go out and become whatever you choose. If we do not go back to that then we are done and will fade away.

        Ignorance is rampant now. If you grow up in the slums of some major city you still have it better than 95 percent of the rest of the world. Yet the spoiled population complains. We are appressed by this group or that. In so doing they cause certain groups to get special treatment or attention and in so doing they cause the very thing they claim they are against.

        Many people have died to try to make this country the best it can be. That flag stands for the good old U.S. Like it or not we are in the top 1 percent of the world. Why because of freedom. It is a symbol of this country and its beliefs. Most of us on here want personal freedom and self reliance. We don’t want government handouts, special treatment, or government interference. Yes our government has gone away from the meaning of it’s constitution. Lets face it we may not get it back. The thing is I know that the life I have had is better than 99 percent of the rest of people and it is due to where I was born.

        These idiots get hundreds of thousands of dollars to play a game. Some millions. Then they want to sit while our flag is displayed and the national anthem is played.
        It is there spoiled rotten right to do that but then it is my right as a vet to not watch. The spoiled brats are working for owners pay them. They don’t have the right to protest at work. A company can make policy that says they can’t. In fact the NFL already has a policy that says players must stand during the national anthem.
        My company has a policy that says as a supervisor I am not allowed to pray if asked to do so by another employee. I have a job that most would love to have because of pay and benefits. I told the company I would not abide by there policy and fire me now if they needed too.
        These spoiled brats should be told if they don’t stand they are gone. Then if they truly feel the policy is wrong they have the right to make a stand.

        Spoiled SOBs put your wallet where your stupid mouth is. I just so pissed.

        • Mike in VA, thanks for one of the best posts ever. I cannot agree more. The spoiled brats of the NFL can forget about any of my money supporting their disrespectful cause. I have decided to not watch them on TV also. Players need to take a visit to ” D.C.” and see the names on the VIETNAM MEMORIAL and visit Arlington National Cemetary. There have been many sacrifices so the pampered snowflakes, BLM, and other babies can have their say. I’m another veteran that is sick of it. Semper Fidelis

          • Or visit the Arizona memorial where the guys were never recovered

          • cranerigger

            You are welcome but it just so pisses me off. I am so sick of this crap.

        • ???

        • LMAO. Meanwhile…

          “Hey. I’m a nationalist and a globalist. I’m both. And I’m the only one who makes that decision, believe me.”

          – President Trump

          It’s true. If the very foundations, and the very existence of your country, and its institutions, have been transformed and predicated upon globalism, one can be a nationalist, and a globalist.

          Nationalist Globalist.

          Just like one can be, and perpetuate: Nationalist Communist. Nationalist Nazi. Nationalist Socialist. Nationalist Fascist. Nationalist Monarchy.

          One can also be a Nationalist Globalist.

          Hence: Globalism, Deep State, Swamp, Military Industrial Complex, is being repackaged and assimilated into American Nationalism.

          And if any of you MAGA dumb-asses had any inkling of history… we’ve seen this before. Again, and again.


          What a big fat distraction. We’re not gonna watch football! We’re gonna boycott the NFL! We’re gonna burn their jerseys! Meanwhile… the Washington DC Capital is still standing and working.

          • Curtis

            What you say is true. This just may be a big distraction. Even so does that mean we do nothing?

            I voted for Trump. I commend him for saying what a lot of people think. I feel the same now as I did when I voted. Trump may be the next George Washington or he may be the next part of one world government. Regarding the parties they are all the same. For years I just vote lesser of two evils. Time will tell.
            In the mean time make a stand for what you believe in!

        • Mike, thank you for your post. It echoes my thoughts.

          And one more comment about kneeling. Throughout history, it’s been a custom to show obeisance and respect which is the opposite of what those people are trying to show.

          • Yahooie

            You are welcome. It is just so infuriating.

      6. Now you have a MLB player taking a knee because he claims he grew up in racist Alabama.
        This is some sorry shit. What about the white kids that grow up in black and hispanic hoods? Don’t you think they ever had to put up with some shit? I say boycott all of the
        sports. Look at the paying customers at sporting events. Lots of them make six figures a
        year. They don’t suffer much. When the economy REALLY implodes, all of those jockstraps
        will have to renegotiate their salaries. Attendance will be way down. The money flow will not be going in the places it does now. The rich bitches will be watching the games on TV
        like everyone else. Season tickets will be a luxury even for the privileged.

          I should not say this I know but I am honest to the core. I never have said this but will because of your post. I make six figures. Everyone I work with at the electrical plants can if they work enough overtime.
          Things I have learned in life. Money is not the key to happiness. I have been on both sides. My ex wife left me when my two sons were 4 and 5. The 5 year old has cerebral palsy and needs total care. I had just started as a ground man 20 years ago. I sold guns, a car, anything I could to get keep from losing my house. Then other things happened. I had to call family and friends for help when storm trouble caused overtime at work. I have gone from being a spoiled rotten kid where money was plentiful. To having to work for everything I got. Money plentiful again. Married to losing everything and not having a pot to piss in to where I am at now.
          Point is money is not the key to happiness. Six figures in today’s world does not get you far to be honest. You still have to manage it wisely. Things cost to much. Anyway point is those six figure people will be just like you and stop watching. The reason I am sure of this is because it is entertainment. Once all this BS enters it it is not entertainment. The fun is gone. Look for example at ESPN. They are a sinking ship because they changed from reporting on sports to putting all the political correct crap into it.
          As for my six figures. It hurts me to say but I hate my job right now. I feel trapped. I have 8 years until I can retire with a pension and insurance. I will do that 8 years and try not to complain. I feel i have too for my son who has CP. I have to ensure he is left in the best position possible when I go meat my maker. The best job I ever had was driving for Domino’s. It was fun.
          So what that’s life.

      7. Thar she blows! LOL. As far as folks not standing for the Flag. As far as I am concerned they have the right to not stand, provided they are not on company time. Now those players are highly paid entertainers and the person who pays them has purchased that portion of their time and should have the right to dictate what they do as part of the job. And that praying while on company time falls under the same heading. You have sold a portion of your time. The employer owns that portion of your life. Whats fair for the goose is fair for the gander.

        • Old Guy

          Agree completely with your statements. I have made my choice and told them in front of everyone. Now the balls in there court.They can fire me if they choose. Some things in life you have to do in order to be able to sleep with yourself at night.
          There is part of the pray thing I did not find out until about six months ago. The company has prayer rooms for all at its headquarters. They have to say for all due to political correctness. Truth is they are used by Muslims. Such a screwed up world we live in.

      8. They don’t have to stand for the pledge and neither do I have to buy a game ticket and darken the stadium doorway. Starve them.

      9. I am having a hard time believing anyone here is still watching sports on Tell your vision. All the brainwashing. Between the commercials every few minutes to the rigged and corrupted games. Seriously, you have figured that out by now.

        • Greywar

          Have known it for years. Can be used to educate if you point out the brainwashing material.
          I watch movies, sports, and weather. That’s about it. Get my news from online sources.
          There is nothing wrong with watching as long as you know what you are watching and use your brain.
          The problem is not tv, video games, movies, or any other entertainment.

          The problem in my opinion is parents. We don’t discipline, educate, or lead our children like we should. We as a people let this happen. We did not stand long ago when we should have. Now we have two generations that have been educated by the government. There no way out of this now without blood shed in my opinion. Do we win and get back the country that was. Sadly I don’t think the country that was will ever be again. Even so we on this site no what is coming. We know what side we will be on. So be it.

      10. Maybe they need to watch this. But I doubt with their entitlement mentality, that they would understand or care.
