The governor of the Indonesian province of Bali told Big League Politics that he guaranteed that there will be no victims if the island’s Mount Agung continues to smoke and shake, signs of a possible eruption.
Gov. I Made Mangku Pastika said he has ordered the evacuation of all 28 villages in the danger zone and there are now more than 144,000 refugees, who are now housed in tents, sporting facilities, and private homes. “We consider the refugees like brothers and sisters—and they are fine.”
The governor said the many of the refugees do not actually live near the volcano. “They are in a panic.”
Pastika said his message to Balinese people living in the United States is to relax. “Stay calm. Nothing bad is going to happen. Don’t worry.” The governor has evacuated everyone living within a 12-kilometer radius of the mountain.
“I guarantee there will be no victims from the volcano,” he said.
The governor said in addition to providing shelters for the refugees, he has set up kitchen and feeding facilities, each capable of feeding tens of thousands.
Mount Agung is the dominant feature on the east end of the island and the nearly 10,000-foot mountain is considered extremely sacred for the Hindus, who make up the clear majority of the island population.
In the days since tremors near the mountain became more frequent and stronger in the second week of September.
Pastika, who has been the governor since 2008, said he was a 12-year-boy when the volcano last erupted in 1963, followed by smaller eruptions into 1964.
“It was a long time ago and the situation is very different,” he said. “At that time there were no cars, no communications, no electricity—and no information about the volcanology, or whatever,” he said.
“One thousand people were killed because there was no notification and because of the belief of the people the volcano will not erupt after they came and performed ceremonies with the music and everything,” he said.
“I will always remember that suddenly, the day became dark and there was a lot of ash and dust covering everything,” Pastika said.
“That eruption was considered big because it had been more than 100 years, since the last eruption,” he said.
“But, now? It is just 54 years ago,” he said.
“We cannot compare all those things that happened in 1963,” he said.
“We are so developed now,” he said.
“Now we have thousands of refugees and they are going in their own cars,” the governor said.
Another major difference between 2017 and 1963 is the coordination between the provincial, local and national government, through the National Disaster Coordination Board, he said.
The governor said he has not been in contact with the American government because the preparations have been so complete, there is no need to go outside the country for help. “For the time being, we can handle it by ourselves.”
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
