U.S. industrial destruction December 2016: “WE DO NOT ANTICIPATE ANY MEANINGFUL RECOVERY”

SEARS KMART SELF-DESTRUCT DECEMBER 2016: IT’S A CRIME! SEARS STOPS HONORING WARRANTIES!

WARN=Worker Adjustment & Retraining Notification.

I found a 2010 AFL-CIO analysis (titled The Public Availability of WARN Notices: Lack of Accessibility and Disclosure…) which proves what I’ve been suspecting in my search of state WARN notices; most states are not complying with federal WARN regulations and are not publicizing or tracking mass layoffs.

Former employees who receive severance are not counted as unemployed!

Employees of religious non-profits might not qualify for unemployment assistance: “If the non-profit organization is a church, you may or may not be entitled to unemployment. It all depends upon state regulations for church employers. In many cases, churches are allowed to set their own rules regarding unemployment benefits, meaning the church can choose whether to offer benefits to former employees.”

The U.S. Department of Labor (DoL) no longer issues mass layoff reports: “On March 1, 2013, President Obama ordered into effect the across-the- board spending cuts (commonly referred to as sequestration) required by the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act, as amended. Under the order, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) must cut its current budget by more than $30 million, 5 percent of the current 2013 appropriation, by September 30, 2013. In order to help achieve these savings and protect core programs, the BLS will eliminate two programs, including Mass Layoff Statistics, and all ‘measuring green jobs’ products. This news release is the final publication of monthly mass layoff survey data.”

Obama Legacy: Record 95-million + unemployed & not counted!

13 January 2017 / 22:27 UTC-07 Tango 06 (25 Dey 1395/15 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/17 Ji Chou 4714)

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!

08 January 2017 (13:51 UTC-07 Tango 06) 19 Dey 1395/09 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/11 Ji Chou 4714

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.

Food Crisis: University study proves Free Range Eggs safe?

07 January 2017 (14:20 UTC-07 Tango 06) 18 Dey 1395/08 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/10 Ji Chou 4714

There’s been a campaign against true ‘free range’ poultry operations, including claims that true free range (basically raising poultry the old fashioned way and not in industrial cages) eggs are infected with salmonella, due to being exposed to environmental extremes like heat.

A researcher in Australia is challenging that claim: “…it has been assumed that hot weather has a role to play in the potential contamination of eggs at the site of free range egg production. We found that there was no direct association between hot weather and increased prevalence of Salmonella at the production stage…..  the types and levels of Salmonella found in and around free range egg farms is highly variable and often dependent on the specific management practices employed by each farm.”Kapil Chousalkar, University of Adelaide  School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences

Having raised chickens myself in the Mojave Desert of California, when I was a child of the 1970s, I can promise you I never got no salmonella from their eggs even after they been sitin’ in the sun all day waitin’ for me to get home from school to collect them up.

However, just because a brand of eggs calls itself ‘free range’, or ‘organic’, doesn’t mean the chickens are allowed to roam free. Many industrial sized ‘free range’ poultry ops still force the poultry into crowded environments.

To counter what is essentially an industrial egg production marketing gimick, some true free rangers use the term Pasture Raised to indicate that the poultry are allowed to run free.

The Great Reneger: Obama deploys additional Marines to Afghanistan!

07 January 2017 (05:01 UTC-07 Tango 06) 18 Dey 1395/08 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/10 Ji Chou 4714

On 06 January 2017 it was revealed that the Obama regime ordered the deployment of 3-hundred U.S. Marines to Afghanistan.  The order was the result of a request for additional troops by CentCom (Central Command) and U.S. Forces-Afghanistan.

The GI-rines will make up Task Force South West, ostensibly to “train and advise” Afghan puppet government military and police forces in Helmand Province.

Afghan puppet government forces in combat with Mujahideen in Helmand, October 2016

The MarineTimes reports this will be the first of many rotations of Marines back into Helmand Province because “The Afghans have seen security erode in several Helmand districts, including Marjah, Sangin and in the provincial capital, Lashkar Gah. All have experienced resurgent violence as a determined Taliban seeks to reclaim lost ground and once again push out any political and security entities loyal to the central Afghan government.”

Nippon is a long time Major Non-NATO Member (MNNA).  In 2014, then NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and current Prime Minister Abe Shinzō signed a new deal that expanded Nippon’s military role within NATO.  On 05 January 2017, Nippon’s Defense Minister Inada Tomomi met with NATO leaders in Belgium.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) would only say that  Defense Minister Inada Tomomi was in Belgium to discuss the progress of NATO-Nipponese relations. However, NHK (Nippon Housou Kyoukai/Japan Broadcasting Corporation) reported that the meeting was about expanding Nippon’s military role in NATO.  (please note that Nippon is in the Pacific, not in the Atlantic)
