Obama Legacy: China kicks America’s Ass in jobs for Africa!

“China ranks the 7th in terms of project numbers in Africa, but it created the most jobs, which is unexpected by many people.”-Jeremy Stevens, Standard Bank Group

During the last two years of the Obama regime China has become the number one creator of jobs on the African continent, despite billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars spent by the evil USAID (United States Agency for International Development) and USAfriCom (United States Africa Command).

At an economic meeting last week (in Kenya) it was revealed that in the past two years China has created nearly 30-thousand jobs in Africa!  Last year the U.S. based World Bank admitted that despite propaganda from the Obama regime, 93% of Chinese companies in Kenya are hiring Africans.  (interesting that China is doing so well in Barack Obama’s paternal homeland of Kenya)

Why is China so successful and the U.S. not?  Simple, China is spending its taxpayer’s money on creating jobs while the U.S. spends money on so called disaster relief and supposedly fighting ‘terrorism’.  At this past Friday’s economic meeting in Kenya African leaders stated that job creation is all they’re looking for from foreign investments. In other words they want butter, not guns.

But lets not put all the blame on Barack Obama, last week Donald Trump quietly banned one hundred Africans from attending a economic forum here in the U.S.  To add insult to injury, the economic forum was focusing on trade with Africa!

99-million years old Mushrooms found!

Could early humans have been whacked on shrooms from the beginning? Scientists from China, New Zealand and United States claim to have the oldest intact mushroom fossils ever; 99-million years old!

 

Nanjing Institute of Geology and Paleontology (of the Chinese Academy of Sciences) released images of four mushrooms found in Malaysian (Burmese) amber.  But wait, there’s more.  The scientists also found parts of beetles, which survive by eating mushrooms, in amber that’s 125-million years old!

They spent ten years collecting the amber.  However, 99-million years isn’t the oldest, in 2007 researchers in United States claimed to have found a 100-million years old mushroom, also in Malaysian amber.  What’s also interesting is that mushroom fossils in amber have been turning up around the world, with most of them dating to about the same time period, meaning mushrooms were everywhere man!

“I’m scared….for a bad reason!” : Dumbing Down the U.S.A., January 2017

Disappearing Students Syndrome (DSS): A phrase created by me to describe a phenomenon taking place across the United States, affecting both privately and publicly funded schools, from Kindergarten all the way through University levels.

Incomplete list of publicly announced education related layoffs & school shutdowns, January 2017:

California: God powerless to stop the shutdown of five Christian schools in the San Francisco bay area.  The Catholic Diocese of Oakland blames it on The Rapture, I mean what I call DSS.  In Santa Barbara, after 25 years Mesa Bookstore shutdown and sold-off just a year after one local news source called it “Successfully Small”.   It’s blamed on the health problems of the owners.  Pete’s Music shutting down their 39 years old Orange County location, blaming it on jacked up rent: “They’re trying to rationalize us being a mile and a half from Disneyland as a reason to charge more rent, when we don’t get increased business from being a mile and a half from Disneyland. It’s the community that shops here, not tourists!”-Cassie Brueckner

Connecticut: Hartford warning of as many as 2-hundred teacher layoffs based on the proposed education budget for next school year!

Florida:  In Cape Coral, the Smallville Preschool shutdown without warning, the operators blame a sudden increase in rent.  The operators said in-order to pay the rent increase tuition would have to be jacked by 65%!

Georgia: After 20 years Atlanta Gymnastics Center suddenly shutdown its Decatur operations “effective immediately.”  It’s actually the fault of City Schools of Decatur which took over the property and kicked out the gymnastics school!

Illinois: Glenview Public Library laid off ten people because the local taxpayers could not afford another local property tax hike.   Black Hawk College began eliminating dozens of jobs due to state government bullshit: “The biggest factor for us right now regarding budget cuts has been the State of Illinois and the lack of funding for higher education over the past two years. …..we are still about $8-million short of what we had budgeted from the State of Illinois.”-Betty Truitt, college president

Maryland: Allegany College shutting down its Somerset County campus due to what I call DSS. Administrators warned of “…enrollment and revenue losses that are expected to continue.”  Baltimore Public Schools warning that proposed city budget cuts will result in more than 1-thousand school employees becoming unemployed!  The city is short $129-million USD and blames the state government for not increasing education funding: “The bottom-line problem is that state aid to the city school system has been flat for nine years…”-Be Be Verdery,  American Civil Liberties Union.

Massachusetts: After 20 years Willow Books in Acton shutdown, the owner said he wanted to retire but also stated “The world is different than it was 20 years ago and I wouldn’t say the internet was the only reason, but it was a factor….”  Harvard University announced plans to outsource half the jobs with its $36-billion endowment fund.  Harvard Management Company will stop managing its internal hedge funds and will spin-off its real estate funds as an independent company. The move will eliminate about 115 jobs because “The investment landscape has evolved significantly, requiring us to adapt…..”

Michigan: In White Lake, Brooks Elementary shutting down by the end of the school year due to DSS: “A number of years of declining enrollment due to low birth rates and low state funding have combined to create an extremely challenging financial forecast.”-Nancy Coratti, interim Huron Valley Schools superintendent

Missouri: Saint Louis University warned of massive layoffs due to what I call DSS, skyrocketing operating costs and a budget deficit of at least $16-million!

New Jersey: Bayonne Public School eliminated 22 jobs and warned of more job cuts in an attempt to reduce yearly operating costs by at least $315-thousand.   Atlantic Cape Community College began eliminating jobs within its Culinary Arts department due to the massive shutdowns of Atlantic City casinos (like the one Donald Trump co-owned).

New York: NYC shutting down six of its ‘Renewal’ schools by the end of the school year, three in Brooklyn and three in Bronx. Local news media also report that about 61% of the Renewal teachers have quit, or will quit by the end of the school year!  A loyal Renewal Schools teacher revealed to local news media a conspiracy to contract out the Renewal system: “Instead of getting extra resources, we lost half of our classrooms to a charter school co-location. We lost the most valuable teachers that we have in the building that have bilingual licenses. We haven’t had an assistant principal for a year.”-Jim Donohue, English teacher

Tennessee: After 32 years Booksellers forced to shutdown their Laurelwood location, 50 jobs lost despite the efforts of the owner to increase business: “When I stepped in 6 years ago to save this 32-year-old store, we had high hopes of getting things turned around and going forward. Unfortunately, the store size and rent are too much for us to handle combined with slight decline in sales over the last few years. The numbers just don’t work.”-Neil Van Uum

Texas: Vantage College shutdown its two El Paso campuses without warning!  Administrators say the U.S. Department of Education froze all federal taxpayer funding as part of Barack Obama’s executive order investigating student loan debt.  One student exclaimed to local TV station KVIA “I’m scared. I was supposed to be in debt for a good reason but now it’s for a bad reason!”

Virginia: God powerless to stop ‘his’ Fredericksburg Christian School from shutting down its Stafford campus.  Administrators admitted that enrollment hasn’t lived up to expectations, so they’re consolidating campuses.

Washington: University Book Store shutting down its 30 years old Bellevue location because they realized they can make more money renting out the space to somebody else: “…our operations, will be better served by leasing the space that our store currently occupies to another retail tenant.”-Louise Little, ceo

West Virginia: Just weeks after Boone County Schools warned of 45 layoffs they warned that the number of people losing their jobs will go up, and this is after 40 people voluntarily resigned last year!  It’s blamed on a budget deficit of at least $3-million.

The Emerald Isle going Green with Ganja?

The Republic of Ireland is one step closer to legalized marijuana use for medical treatments.

The Ministry of Health issued guidelines (Cannabis for Medical Use — a Scientific review) for ganja use, which include eight recommendations by the Health Products Regulatory Authority.  But don’t think just anybody can fake a medical problem to take a toke, the guidelines also state that ganja users must be under direct supervision of a healthcare provider.

But meanwhile, in neighboring United Kingdom a political party that’s been pushing for the legalization of Mary-Jane just got fined; the Cannabis is Safer than Alcohol group has to pay the equivalent of $29-thousand USD for failing to report required political party finance reports for two quarters in a row.

“…give us some breathing room…” : U.S. federal/state/local government Shenanigans, December 2016

Incomplete list (due to internet access problems, come on why won’t anybody donate to BlindBatNews?) of U.S. Federal/State/Local Government self-destruct announcements for December 2016:

Political activists known as The Koch Brothers laid off 81 people, now that the undemocratic presidential election is over.  At the same time they announced they’re creating a new for-profit communications company.

Alaska:  The state’s low tax collections (due to oil industry cutbacks) got a big boost from the new legalized marijuana operations.  December was the second month of Mary-Jane tax collections with the state raking in nearly $146-thousand USD! Buds are taxed at $50 per ounce, and the junk is taxed at $15 per ounce, with the grower being responsible for the tax payments.  

Colorado:  Garfield County Library District laid off eight people due to a $1.2-million USD crash in revenues (that’s what happens when you put all your hopes into the oil industry and then they reduce local operations by 45%).

Florida: Orange County was surprised when tax collections from tourists crashed by 3.5% in December. Local news reports say December is usually a good tax collection month for Orange County.  The city of Miami reports continued crashing of hotel tax collections, and of course city admin continues to blame it on fear of the Zika virus.

Georgia:  The overall tax collections for December 2016 were stagnant at 0.7% compared to December 2015.

Illinois: Peoria County warning of as many as 40 layoffs as part of their budget for 2017.  The new budget also raises property taxes.  County chairman Andy Rand indicated they didn’t expect any short term economic recovery by saying the austerity measures were meant to “…give us some breathing room over the next four years.”

Louisiana: Tax collections from tourists dropped 3.5% in December.

Massachusetts: Once again, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to kill jobs, this time warning of at least one hundred layoffs in 2017, due to a taxpayer funding shortage of $100-million USD!

Michigan: In Port Huron, ThumbCoast Brewing Company shutdown blaming taxpayer funded city construction projects for creating “…challenges that we’ve faced throughout 2016, especially those which had (a) significant impact on revenue during the months of May and June, have finally caught up with us and we can no longer move forward.”

Nebraska: For the past six months state level tax collections have been far less than what the predominantly ‘christian’ government ‘experts’ expected.  Actual tax collections came in at $51-million short of what was projected, proving their economy has not improved.  

New Jersey: The evil city of Newark forces janitor services company United Services to layoff 41 people.  In July, United Services filed a lawsuit claiming the city failed to pay for services rendered!

New York: Tax-sucking military sewing contractor The Resource Center issued a shutdown WARN, 57 Buffalo jobs lost by March 2017.  The town of Hempstead shutting down the 20 years old East Meadow Senior Center because the property owner now wants $9-thousand per month in rent (for the past 20 years the rent was free).

Ohio:  Tax collections failed to meet government budget ‘expert’s expectations, for the 5th month in a row!  This is another sign that Ohio’s low unemployment rate is fake.

Pennsylvania: 520 Jobless Center employees could join the unemployment lines before Xmas! Local news media blames it on disputes between Democrat and Republican politicians.

Rhode Island: Cafe-bakery Au Bon Pain shutdown, the owners blame crashing sales on the city of Providence for forcing potential customers to pay for parking!  Local news reports say it was the third business to shutdown as a result of the new city parking meters!

Tennessee:  Wilson County reports four straight years of increased sales tax collections, local news reports didn’t explain why.  However, at the state level it was reported that overall sales and corporate tax collections were up, mainly due to “substantial one time” corporate tax payouts.   

Texas: State tax collectors reported that tax revenues for the twin cities of Bryan-College Station were up for the year, but down for December.  The increases came from sales taxes, and the decreases were caused by the oil industry shutdowns. 

Vermont: Taxpayer funded, Bernie Sanders founded, drug-free music venue 242 Main finally shutdown after 32 years of lack of funding and lack of ticket sales. (probably would’ve made money if it offered free drugs instead of being drug-free)

Virginia: The city of Danville reports increased tax and fee collections for the year. City admin admitted that part of the increase is from cash strapped property owners finally making payments on past due taxes.  

Washington DC: The federal government’s budget deficit hit $28-billion in December 2016, double what it was in December 2015!  Obama regime’s new legacy as The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a record 95-million 102-thousand U.S. citizen, ages 16 and up, are Not In Labor Force during December. Not In Labor Force refers to people unemployed for various reasons, and are not used to calculate the ‘official’ unemployment percentage as reported by main stream news media. Meaning the number of unemployed ‘Mericans is much higher than ‘officially’ reported.

Obama regime creates new legacy as the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a record 95-million 102-thousand U.S. citizen, ages 16 and up, are Not In Labor Force during December 2016.

Not In Labor Force refers to people unemployed for various reasons and who are not looking for work.  Those Not In Labor Force people are not used to calculate the ‘official’ unemployment percentage as reported by main stream news media, meaning the number of unemployed ‘Mericans is much higher than ‘officially’ reported.

Pharma Phail: AntAcid drugs causing Stomach ‘Flu’?

12 January 2017 (11:25 UTC-07 Tango 06) 23 Dey 1395/13 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/15 Ji Chou 4714

“We found that taking PPIs increased the risk of hospitalization with infectious gastroenteritis by up to 70 percent because they significantly reduce the amount of acid made by stomach, which increases risk of infectious gastro…..   The elderly and those with chronic bowel problems are most at risk.”- Yingxi Chen, researcher

“They’re getting away with murder! Pharma. Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power.”-Donald Trump, President Elect United States, 11 January 2017

A suppressed study by Australian National University (ANU) concluded that pharmaceutical industry antacid (heartburn) drugs actually weaken your digestive system to the point you get sick with stomach ‘flu’ (gastroenteritis).

The anti-acids are also known as Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), they shutdown your stomach’s acid production, but the study found that your stomach acid was key to preventing you from getting sick to your stomach with infections.

The study was prompted by an increase in the Aussie working class missing more and more days of work due to stomach infections; now at 13-million ‘lost’ work days per year.  At least 20-million PPI prescriptions are issued every year in Australia!

Here’s the rub: The study was released in October of 2016, but only now is being reported by the main stream news media (which gets most of its advertising revenues from the pharma industry).

Conclusion. PPI use is associated with an increased risk of infectious gastroenteritis hospitalization with increasing risks among increasing doses. Clinicians should be aware of this potential association when considering PPI therapy, and use the lowest effective dose for patients with appropriate indications.”-Use of Proton Pump Inhibitors and the Risk of Hospitalization for Infectious Gastroenteritis,

There’s more reasons why Donald Trump said the pharma industry is “getting away with murder”, as this stomach infection study is not the only PPI study being suppressed by the pharma industry:

 Northwestern University: HEARTBURN MEDICATIONS CAN INCREASE RISK FOR HIP FRACTURES IN POSTMENOPAUSAL WOMEN

DrugWatch: PPI Heartburn Drugs May Increase Stroke Risk

Consumer Reports: “…people who regularly take these stomach soothers for extended periods face serious harms, including an increased risk of heart attack and dementia.”

Medscape: “The long-term consequences of chronic PPI use include the potential increased risk of hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia, Clostridium difficile infections, and pneumonia.”

High Tech Fail: Idaho’s low tech paper ballots ranked one of most trustworthy for U.S. elections!

The University of Sydney, in Australia, recently published their study of the U.S. voting system (done with the cooperation of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University), or systems since there is no standardized system of voting across the United States.

The latest and greatest electronic voting systems failed to boost the election integrity of the more populous U.S. states.

In fact, Idaho’s old fashioned mainly paper ballot system helped The Gem State earn the second highest ranking for election integrity in the United States (behind tiny Vermont)!  Keep in mind that the logistics of casting and counting votes in Idaho is delegated down to the county level, also realize that even though Idaho is considered one of the best for election integrity there were several cases of documented vote fraud.

And time for another reality check, the United States as a whole (once considered the leader in world democratic ideals) is still ranked among the lowest for election integrity in the ‘western’ europeanized world (once known as Christendom), along with the United Kingdom.

“With it ends a 70-year geopolitical era of Pax Americana.”-Top Risks 2017: The Geopolitical Recession

The New York City based political policy think-tank known as Eurasia Group has declared the U.S. the biggest threat to the World in 2017, all because of Donald Trump!

However, the control freaks at Eurasia Group don’t think the threat to the World will be an overly aggressive President Trump, but that Trump will pull back from “…America’s responsibility to play an indispensable role in world affairs.”  In other words, the paranoids at Eurasia Group believe the U.S. must continue playing World Cop for other countries who refuse to police themselves!

Where can you find E-dragsters & 1,000+ E-buses?

04 January 2017 (10:25 UTC-07 Tango 06) 15 Dey 1395/05 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/07 Ji Chou 4714

China now boasts more than 1-thousand battery powered buses and California boasts the world’s fastest battery powered car (and it’s not a Tesla)!

Chinese investor funded (but California based) Faraday Future claims its new FF91 is the fastest battery powered car in the 0 to 60 miles per hour category:

The 2.39 second 0 to 101.4 kph (0-60 mph) run is achieved with a 130 kilowatt-hour energy/1-thousand 50 horsepower battery powered motor.  Company admin claim the FF91 can also travel 638.82 km (378 miles) before re-charging.  You need $5-thousand USD to “pre-order” your own FF91 (I wonder how much it costs to actually ‘order’ your car? Isn’t it impossible to pre-order anything because you’re actually ordering it when you pre-order?).  Even then you won’t get the car until 2018.

Just one of many styles of battery powered buses in Tianjin

The city of Tianjin just bought a new fleet of 5-hundred battery powered buses, bringing the overpopulated city’s E-bus inventory to 1-thousand 346!

The city also built a new bus charging station that can handle 448 buses per day (now considered the largest bus charging station ever), and the city claims they now have 201 charging stations (that a big city) city-wide!

Despite having a total of 3-thousand 220 clean energy buses (including the batt-powered buses) Tianjin is still one of the smoggiest cities in China.
