“…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!

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.

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.

Vitamin D kills baby!?

04 January 2017 (09:39 UTC-07 Tango 06) 15 Dey 1395/05 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/07 Ji Chou 4714

A specific Vitamin D supplement is now banned after a ten days old infant died.

It’s called Uvesterol D and was given to the baby by hospital staff in France.  The Agence Nationale de Sécurité du Médicament et des Produits de Santé has temporarily banned the sale and use of the supplement, at least until investigators determine what caused the baby to die from what was essentially a heart attack.

Uvesterol D is given to babies considered to be lacking vitamin D.

The Français Health Minister also advised parents to stop using the supplement at home.

Gun Ban Fail: Another mass attack where guns are totally banned!

04 January 2017 (09:02 UTC-07 Tango 06) 15 Dey 1395/05 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/07 Ji Chou 4714

Yet again there’s been a mass attack on a Kindergarten in a country that totally bans gun ownership; China.

In the province of Guangxi government controlled news media reporting that a man attacked 11 children with a knife, none of the victims were killed.  Police arrested the man but so far he’s given no reason for his attempted rampage.

Asian news sources point out that ‘social revenge’ attacks are common in China, despite the gun ban.   Also, if you research knife attacks in Guangxi you’ll discover that they are indeed very common, taking place mostly at schools or against children going to school, or in shopping areas.

By the way, don’t blame the Communists for the gun ban.  Guns were first banned in China by the U.S. backed Nationalist government, this is exactly why the Communists armed all the peasants, and why Mao Tse-Tung came to the conclusion that “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”

GUN BAN FAIL: AUSSIE RIPS HOME INVADER A NEW ASS-HOLE, LITERALLY!

GUN BAN FAILURE: YET MORE MASS STABBINGS OF CHILDREN IN TOTAL GUN BAN CHINA!

Micro wires made from diamonds?

03 January 2017 (09:00 UTC-07 Tango 06) 14 Dey 1395/04 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/06 Ji Chou 4714

“The process is a simple, one-pot synthesis. You dump the ingredients together and you can get results in half an hour. It’s almost as if the diamondoids know where they want to go.”-Hao Yan, Stanford researcher

U.S. Department of Energy’s California based Stanford Linear Accelerator Center-National Accelerator Laboratory, and Stanford University, succeeded in creating micro electrical wires using micro-diamonds (officially called diamonoids) and interlocking cages of carbon and hydrogen, among other things.

Don’t think this process will get us off petroleum oil, the diamonoids, carbon and hydrogen come from oil.  The process essentially results in the micro-wires assembling themselves: “Much like Lego blocks, they only fit together in certain ways that are determined by their size and shape. The copper and sulfur atoms of each building block wound up in the middle, forming the conductive core of the wire, and the bulkier diamondoids wound up on the outside, forming the insulating shell.”-Fei Hua Li, Stanford researcher

The micro-wires could be used to make those Orwellian clothing, being made to monitor your every move, even more effective. (XENOMA: JAPAN DEVELOPS PARASITIC E-SKIN THAT LETS OTHER PEOPLE KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING!)

Police Cause Gun Violence: Majority of people killed by cops are White Men!

03 January 2017 (08:30 UTC-07 Tango 06) 14 Dey 1395/04 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/06 Ji Chou 4714

PBS Newshour reported that for Gregorian year 2016 a mere 64 U.S. law enforcement personnel were killed with guns, versus 951 civilians shot to death by cops.

The Washington Post reported that despite the main stream U.S. news media’s fixation on Black Lives Matter demonstrations the majority of people killed by police are ‘white’ men, 46% of death by cop shootings are ‘white’ males.  The Washington Post points out that the reason ‘black’ males killed by cops is a news maker is that ‘black’ men make up 6% of the U.S. population, yet they account for 34% of death by cop cases.

What’s really important, especially regarding 2nd Amendment military grade weapons ownership rights, is that 84% of civilians shot to death by cops were unarmed!

The Washington Post also reminds people that official government recorded murder by cop shootings are voluntarily reported, there is no law requiring law enforcers to reveal how many citizens they kill.
