COVERT INTEL - CALIFORNIA'S GARLOCK FAULT

COVERT INTEL - CALIFORNIA'S GARLOCK FAULT
20 Comments

The following information was derived from my former contact in the Intelligence Community during my 15 years with FBI.  It is gravely serious and NOT for public dissemination or else panic may ensue.  Subscribers only--

According to information from inside the United States Geological Survey WHICH IS NOT FOR PUBLIC DISSEMINATION - California's Garlock Fault is active, and in horrific danger of a massive strike-slip event which could have unimaginable effects on Los Angeles.   Think along the lines of some of the Special Effects in the Movie 2012.  THAT kind of effect.

According to my source, the USGS has revealed this information to the Tulare County (California) Fire Department, urging them to prepare for catastrophe on a scale they never imagined.

The Garlock Fault is a left-lateral strike-slip fault running northeast-southwest along the north margins of the Mojave Desert of Southern California, for much of its length along the southern base of the Tehachapi Mountains.

Perspective view of the Garlock Fault:

The Garlock Fault marks the northern boundary of the area known as the Mojave Block, as well as the southern ends of the Sierra Nevada and the valleys of the westernmost Basin and Range province. Stretching for 250 kilometers (160 mi), it is the second-longest fault in California and one of the most prominent geological features in the southern part of the state.  Here is a scalable Google Map.  The red pin on the map is tipped in the fault itself, which you can see as a pale mound of dirt running mostly east-west:

The Garlock Fault runs from a junction with the San Andreas Fault in the Antelope Valley, eastward to a junction with the Death Valley Fault Zone in the eastern Mojave Desert. It is named after the historic mining town of Garlock, founded in 1894 by Eugene Garlock and now a ghost town.

The Garlock Fault is believed to have developed to accommodate the strain between the extensional tectonics of the Great Basin crust and the right lateral strike-slip faulting of the Mojave Desert crust.

Unlike most of the other faults in California, slip on the Garlock Fault is left-lateral; that is, the land on the other side of the fault moves to the left from the perspective of someone facing the fault. Thus, the terrain north of the fault is moving westward and that on the south is moving eastward.

The Garlock Fault moves at a rate of between 2 and 11 mm a year, with an average slip of around 7 millimeters. While most of the fault is locked, certain segments have been shown to move by aseismic creep, which is motion without resulting earthquakes.

The Garlock is not considered to be a particularly active fault, seldom producing any shaking detectable by humans, although it has been known to generate sympathetic seismic events when triggered by other earthquakes and in one instance by the removal of ground water. These events, as well as continuing microearthquake activity and the state of the scarps from previous ruptures, do indicate that the Garlock will produce another major quake at some point in the future.

The most recent notable event was a magnitude 5.7 near the town of Mojave on July 11, 1992. It is thought to have been triggered by the Landers earthquake, just two weeks earlier.

The last significant ruptures on the Garlock were thought to be in the years 1050 AD and 1500 AD. Research has pinned the interval between significant ruptures on the Garlock as being anywhere between 200 and 3,000 years, depending on the segment of the fault.

USGS is not releasing this publicly because they fear (rightly) that folks in southern California would panic and try to flee all at once.  Moreover, the is also the very real possibility the USGS data is being interpreted INCORRECTLY, and what they FEAR . . .  might not happen!

Apparently, USGS is between a rock and a hard place.  If they tell the public the Garlock Fault is going to rupture and erase Los Angeles from existence, and they're right . . .  people panic, flee in droves, man-made catastrophe.  If they're wrong, all that panic might happen anyway, AND no one will ever believe them again.  That's a hell of a predicament to be in.

The time frame for this potential Strike-Slip of the Garlock Fault is within SEVEN DAYS from now.  The potential Magnitude of such an event is "higher than magnitude 8."   Below is a small segment of a USGS analysis model which show they they FEAR could happen with the Garlock fault.   If you watch the segment for all 12 seconds, you will notice at the very final seconds that what WAS Los Angeles, becomes water . . .

I don't know how to handle this information.  If I tell the public, and they flee in panic, and some get hurt or killed, I get sued.  I don't want that.  If I don't tell the public and this strike-slip takes place, God only knows how many people might die from it.   If I tell the public, and they flee, but the event DOES NOT happen, I'm ruined; no one will ever believe anything I write again.

So I've decided on a compromise: Covert Intel for Subscribers Only.   That gets info out in a severely limited way and cannot cause a public panic.  I hope I've made the right choice.

    Here is one area, possibly July 23 with a 6.5, somewhere else is a much larger and destructive earthquake. Posting this and doing my duty.
    The dots are mag 2.5 or greater from yesterday. San Andreas is shown. The key 6.5 will hit around the junctions of the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults at Lytle creek per map along a curved section. Key date is 23rd, unknown month or year. Mag 6.5.

    Thankfully you do NOT work for the USGS. The hide information continuously. The pressure is not being release to the south and southeast, unfortunately but is indeed continuing to the now and west. LA is actually pretty well structurally prepared, although, since the tar started coming up in the La Brea are (and their iconic tree fell), I think there may be significant damage. The real potential problem is if the energy is released to the north, either at the Hayward fault, up in the Cascades or worst case scenario off the coast, with a 9+ magnitude, resulting in a catastrophic tsunami, destroying everything west of I-5. This is a well recognized danger, but geophysically, it seems only DutchSinse has been the only one to publicly address it - someone tried to set him up to get swatted since hi report, imagine that. The other potential danger with this energy release it if it DOES head south and gets stuck at the Salton Sea concurrent with a volcanic eruption, possibly pyroclastic.

    I agree with the others below. You are doing it the right way. What choice do you have? Thanks for the info, but I gotta tell you, some of the information from the subscribers below is WAY scarier than just this article! (nothing against you of course)

    You've got a great bunch of informed people on this site (the paying ones at least)

    My post below is based on my talks with Frank LaFlamme the author of "EMP Los Angeles" It is a great read and describes what will happen in an event such as an earthquake or EMP. He was a police officer in the LA area and knows the populace, their thinking and the limitations of the infrastructure. It is available from Amazon. If you prep, it will expose you to what you will face in any big city including some things you never thought about!.

      You have a plan for the chaos, right. What the book will make you realize is that the reaction of bad persons in a chaotic event will be more disruptive to your plan(s) than you may realize. Exceedingly disruptive.

    Does anyone/Hal know about this site: https://taskandpurpose.com/news/
    They are saying the Earthquakes have knocked out the Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake-non-essential personnel being evacuated.
    This came in on the youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZanqGU-eacQ
    I had heard earlier some thought China Lake had been doing underground nuclear testing......thoughts?????

      Much of the NAWS buildings/facilities at China Lake are between damaged and destroyed.

      Only essential staff and officers are allowed on-site.

    This is similar to the dilemma a true follower of Christ faces daily- you want to bad to warn people- and most don't want to hear about it, think about it, worry about it...or be bothered by the "interference" of their lives and lifestyles. And we weep...internally or privately...and feel discouragement for what we see so clearly and what we see coming. I support the method chosen.

    Thanks, Hal. Jim Stone noted the China Lake connection this morning in his blog.
    Too many coincidences for me. Between Dutch, Jim and now YOU, I'm on the watch, here on the Southern Oregon Coast!

    RIDGECREST, CA. -- The Naval Air Weapons Station "China Lake", has been evacuated, all non-essential active duty, drilling reservists, civilian employees and dependents are authorized to evacuate. China Lake remains accessible for mission-essential personnel only, and officials told non-mission-essential personnel not to attempt to access the installation.

      Thanks. Now for some goosebumps, there is another previous whatdoesitmean article:
      http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2913.htm

      What we have is "directed energy weapon systems" developed at the China Lake facility @ Ridgecrest, involved in the recent nuclear sub situation. Then a few days later, these earthquakes occurring at China Lake, Ridgecrest.

      "US Navy granted patents (depictions above) for UFO type aircraft able to fire “Sea Dragon” lasers against submarines" -- from the article

        Damn. A lot of things are coming together - if these articles can be trusted. I just don't know. None of this would surprise me at all. I remember Dave Hodges and Steve Quayle saying many times that the military hardware that we "know about" is decades behind what we actually have.

      Interesting but how would Russians be able to place explosives deep underground in a precise location in the US?
      • This commment is unpublished.
        Feral Woods · 2 months ago
        The Americans built the explosive trigger on the fault at China Lake super secret research and weapons development center. All that needs to be done is activate the trigger and that may have happened and is currently developing to a spectacular conclusion. The China Lake facility is located at Ridgecrest, where the earthquakes are occurring.

          So, Feral, are you saying that once activated, this effect could continue on more than just the 6.4 and the 7.1?

    We lived less than 2 miles from the ocean near LAX. We had good jobs and loved every minute of it. The Reagan Governor/President effect and Deukmejain Governor effect was still predominant. Taxes were high but so was the income. Then the communists and dooo gooders, along with voter fraud, put the communist demorats in permanent control. Big tech likes the communists, note the deals struck by crapple and miccrosnot (possibly gaggle) with china, because of their absolute control. If you stick around, you may be proved a fool more likely by the taxes and illegals for sure, and possibly an earthquake. These are just my opinions.

      Statistics for the Great San Francisco quake. About 5 square miles destroyed by fire. 63 people died in a population of 400,000. Area of San Francisco, approx 50 sq. miles. Area of Los Angles 500 sq. miles. If we still lived there, extensive prepping would be essential. Because you will not be able to get out. Look at a map for major highways in and out, just not enough capacity. For the L. A. Olympics the work start and finish time for various industries was staggered, this alleviated the capacity somewhat. That will not happen for an earthquake.

    Hal ask your buddy about the possibility that the Russians are using their Earthquake Technology in first Round (started with Sub) of WW3... It might be an interesting answer...

    Dutchsinse is predicting the distinct possibility of an above 8.0 earthquake in the very area stated in this article. His timeline is within 10 days, unless the stress on the tectonic plate is relieved by a transfer of force to the East of California along the North American Craton plate. So far, he's been spot on in his prediction of all the earthquake events over the last several weeks, which led up to what's taking place in California right now.
    The *powers that be* have even tried several times to silence him, with the latest incident today, when someone called local law enforcement, in an attempt to have him SWATted at his home. Luckily, he has family which work the local PD and 911 exchange, so it didn't happen.

    He's monitoring the situation and is giving updates throughout the day on his Youtube channel.

        No I was watching his live stream on YouTube this morning.. Someone attempted a "swatting" on Dutchsense and it was unsuccessful because his family happened to be a emergency dispatcher and working that morning.

        Friggin rats! It must be on, folks! Maybe the powers that be or deep snakes are done playing nice (???). They may feel backed into a corner and will be lashing out - probably in multiple prongs. Keep your guns handy and loaded just in case...

        I hope what you heard isn't true, but coincidentally, he was supposed to be back on his channel earlier today for an update and as of about ten mins ago, no sign of him.

          Wow. Probably laying low for a while. He has done his job and put out the warning. Nothing says he has to risk his life for that information. I hope he gets somewhere safe.

      Did he predict the initial quake on July 4th?
      • This commment is unpublished.
        Grim · 2 months ago
        Yes, he did and was even accurate on the exact location within less than 100 miles.
        • This commment is unpublished.
          Christian Walker · 2 months ago
          It was actually within 300 miles.. But as he said if he can accurately predict the state and warn people, then that is a win in his book.

          300 miles is still impressive, I've seen him be within 100 mile accuracy over the years..

    Hal, I think you are mis-interpreting the graphic. This was a historical presentation of what has already happened.
    Look for the points marked SD, LA, and SB, and stop the video right at the end. You will see that they are in their customary positions.

    Can't blame you for being cautious but I am sure the folks at Edwards AFB are taking precautions. Nothing like a 10 foot gash in the runways to foul things up.

    I really hope you are wrong about this Hal. I feel in my spirit thought that you are probably right. I've been wrong before, though and I am really hoping that I am now. I have a relative in Las Vegas that I cannot reach, and I am so afraid for them. God bless everyone here.
