Japan Food Crisis: What global warming?

Has everybody forgotten when the left wing liberals hammered away year after year with their claim of Global Warming?  Well here’s another reason why they were wrong: Japan is seeing unusually low August temps, and it’s affecting their crops.

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, Tokyo is soaked with 16 days of rain, almost breaking the record set back in 1977.   The city of Sendai has been drenched by 26 days in a row of rain, since 22 July!   Also, for the eastern side of the main island of Honshu it’s has rained, somewhere, everyday so far this August.

Tourist and recreation areas, like beaches and public swimming pools, are reporting a lack of customers.  The Toshimaen amusement park reported a drop in visitors of about 30-thousand “despite it being the busiest Bon holiday period.”   August is normally the hottest time of the year for Honshu with the average temperature nearly 30 degrees celsius, but this August it’s been well below 30 degrees.

The cloudy rainy days has killed sunlight; Sendai so far has seen 12 hours of sunlight for the first two weeks of August, compare that to their normal 144 hours of sunlight for the same time period!

Lack of sunshine and cooler temps are causing produce to take longer to ripen, meaning supply is not keeping up with demand resulting in higher prices for food.

The Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market reporting that cucumber production in the Tohoku region is down by about 10% compared to the same time last year, while the prices have skyrocketed by 50%!

Tomato production in both Hokkaido and Tohoku prefectures have dropped by 30%, prices up by 5%.

Weather forecasters are predicting one more week of rain before the skies clear up.

Sumerian Lament: Trump vs Truman

“If Heaven and Earth by cycles within cycles regulated, what had happened will again occur? Is the Past-the Future?”-Lament and warning from Enki the last ‘god’ on Earth, Lost Book of Enki, 14th Tablet

“If they do not now accept our terms they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth.”-Harry Truman, President United States 06 August 1945

“They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”-Donald Trump, President United States  08 August 2017

In 1945 President Truman made his threat after the first atomic bomb was dropped.  Is President Trump about to go ‘ballistic’?

The sky around eastern Idaho is socked in with smoke as the 2017-18 wildfire season roars up (I don’t think I’ve ever seen it so smokey around here, and I’ve been here 20 years).  The water bombing aircraft based at Pocatello Airport were busy during daylight; non-stop landings, reloading, take-offs, for hours on-end until dark.

“Everything is closing very, very suddenly…” “Regrettably, there is no end in sight”: ObamaCare ACA Death Spiral, July 2017

Incomplete list of healthcare related layoffs and shutdowns, announced in July 2017:

In 2015, the National Rural Health Association reported that before ObamaCare went into effect 41% of rural hospitals “operate at a financial loss.”  The insurance/medicare-medicaid reimbursement cuts caused by ObamaCare and ‘sequestration’ is killing them off, meaning ObamaCare is actually preventing people from getting healthcare by exponentially increasing rural hospital shutdowns!

According to Gallup and Sharecare “The percentage of U.S. adults without health insurance grew in the second quarter of 2017 to 11.7%, up from 11.3% in the first quarter.”

According to George Mason University’s Mercatus Center 73% of small business owners have no problem with ObamaCare-ACA being ‘repealed’.   31% reduced work hours of employees from full-time to part-time.   22% to 24% of businesses (depending on number of employees) have reduced hiring as a result of ObamaCare-ACA mandate: “Thanks to the ACA…….we estimate the ACA-inspired practice of keeping payrolls below 50 has cost roughly 250,000 jobs.-Casey Mulligan, University of Chicago

Alabama: North Carolina Rural Health Research Program says Alabama is tied for fourth place for most rural hospital shutdowns.   Endo International announced it will shutdown a generic opiod drug (hydrocodone/APAP, oxycodone, etc) factory and distribution operation, 875 jobs gone!  

California:  Long Beach based Medicare service provider Molina Healthcare eliminating 1-thousand-4-hundred jobs (on top of the jobs already eliminated so far this year) after an audit revealed that the company’s optimistic expansion after ObamaCare became law was unrealistic and the company is actually losing money!  In fact, the audit also discovered that under ObamaCare the federal government is holding back on $52-million USD in reimbursements owed to Molina Healthcare!  In Sacramento, First Responder EMS issued a shutdown WARN, 66 jobs gone starting at the end of August.  In Los Angeles, Cedars-Sinai finally notified that it laid off 77 people, back in March.

Florida:  Adolescent Treatment Center of the Palm Beaches eliminating 73 jobs in September.  Healthcare/social services company Fluor Federal Solutions issued a WARN, 125 jobs lost by the end of August!  After more than 60 years A&E Pharmacy in Warrington shutting down due to ObamaCare insurance reimbursements: “The climate for independent pharmacies is definitely not improving. Insurance restrictions and insurance reimbursements are not going in the right direction.”-David Enfinger, co-owner

Georgia: North Carolina Rural Health Research Program ranks Georgia in third place for most rural hospital shutdowns.  God powerless to stop ‘his’ LifePoint Health-Saint Francis Hospital from laying off 55 people in Columbus.  In 2015 the hospital was hit with a $20-million USD fine for failure to comply with federal regulations, that same year it was sold to LifePoint Health.

Idaho: Another year, another insurance increase, this time the greedy health insurance companies want a 38% jump (and that’s the average, some will be higher) in premiums paid by all you happy taxpayers!  More proof The Gem State’s version of ObamaCare is a failure; in Idaho Falls the Community Family Clinic (for people with no ObamaCare insurance) is dealing with an increase in patient volume, and as such is expanding their operations for uninsured people: “The new building will be three times the size of the one we’re in now and will provide more access for patients to come in and be seen.”-Arnold Cantu, administrator

Illinois: God powerless to stop ‘his’ Hospital Sisters Health System Saint Elizabeth’s Hospital from laying off 22 people.  The HSHS hospital recently spent $253 million USD building a new hospital in O’Fallon.  Cook County laying off 1-thousand-1-hundred employees, including public healthcare workers, blaming it on a failed ‘sweetened drink’ tax (blocked by court order)!  Apparently the math deficient county officials thought a tax on drinks could support 1,100 jobs.  During the appeals court hearing Cook County claimed that 90% of its tax collections go to fund public healthcare, even with federally mandated ObamaCare!  CORPAK Medsystems issued a shutdown WARN for its operations in Buffalo Grove, 81 jobs gone in December.  Westmoreland Nursing Center shutting down, 84 jobs gone due to ‘natural disaster’.

Iowa: New Link Genetics issued a layoff WARN, 39 jobs gone by mid-August.

Kansas: The Birth and Women’s Center shutting down by the end of September, administrators say ObamaCare rendered them financially broke, plus they claim they’re having trouble finding ‘qualified’ nurses.

Tennessee:  NewsChannel5 revealed that dozens of hospitals are shutting down, and published a list of nine hospitals already shutdown!  Some desperate counties have imposed extra taxes, like a $60 per wheel tax, but it’s not enough to stop the hospital shutdowns.  Tennessee is ranked second place for most rural hospital shutdowns.

Texas: The Lone Star State is the top state for most rural hospital shutdowns (beating out Tennessee), no thanks to ObamaCare-ACA. Between 2013 and 2016 at least 12 rural hospitals shutdown. Speaking of shutdowns, god powerless to stop ‘his’ Valley Baptist Medical Center-Brownsville from shutting down its psychiatric hospital, by mid-August.   Hearne Healthcare Center nursing home shutting down, possibly due to numerous state regulation violations (63 just in 2015).

Virginia: OBGYN Generations of Women shutdown without warning, along with its Facebook page.  The manager told local news media she got no warning as well, patients are pissed: “Everything is closing very, very suddenly and the pieces just aren’t adding up.”-Jennifer Holliday, patient

Washington:  Renton based non-profit Providence Health & Service warning of more layoffs, across the seven states it operates in, after losing $255-million USD in 2016. The huge loss happened the same year that Providence ended open heart surgeries and began hospital consolidation op in Oregon, no thanks to ObamaCare.

West Virginia: Charleston Area Medical Center eliminating 3-hundred jobs by the end of the year blaming, among other things, ObamaCare: “Regrettably, there is no end in sight for West Virginia’s economic situation, poor reimbursement from governmental insurance, rising cost of drugs and technology, the nursing shortage and the cost of caring for government-insured patients. After the first five months of 2017, CAMC’s operations were on course to lose more than $40 million.”-Dave Ramsey, ceo

Hawaii: North Hawaii Community Hospital, in Kamuela, laid off six people.

Illinois: Obama-Land is now officially a failed state, and the state’s Chief Fiscal and Accountability Officer, Susana A. Mendoza, publicly blamed ObamaCare-ACA as being the straw that broke their financial back, warning that in July they “will severely limit any payments……to, long-term care, hospice, and community care and supportive living centers serving the senior community, and ambulatory and other critical medical supplies for the poor and disabled.”  She also stated thatIt is already too late”, the damage is done.

ObamaCare (ACA) death spiral May 2017:  “UNSUSTAINABLE FOR OUR COMPANY”

MORMON POLITICIAN SAYS YOU DON’T NEED HEALTHCARE!

Idaho Mormon politician says you don’t need healthcare!

In May 2017,  god was completely powerless to stop ‘his’ mormon ‘elected’ U.S. congressman Raúl Rafael Labrador from stating “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to healthcare.”

In a video taken in a church(?) where mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, LDS) Labrador was taking ‘town hall’ questions from the public, he was asked many questions about the poor quality of healthcare for low income people in the United States.  Not only did Labrador claim the U.S. has the best healthcare in the world for poor people (proven to be false by the United Nations World Health Organization) but he added “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to healthcare.” 

I personally know somebody who died because she was refused access to healthcare, and she had insurance!  She was suffering from delusions and physical problems caused by her prescription meds.  She was the mother of my children, and my son and I took her to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center for emergency help.  The ER staff told us they believed she was suffering as a result of addiction to her meds and under Idaho law they could and did refuse medical help.  They kept saying “she won’t die”, the next morning she was found dead in her mobile-home by the mobile-home park manager, and a nurse that admitted to me that she was personally concerned by her condition and for some reason was compelled to check on her that next morning.  My adult children tried to get legal help but were told that unless it was an “open and shut case” the laws in Idaho made it almost impossible to sue the healthcare industry.  Lawyers were willing to take the case if my children paid cash up front, but being a poor family that ain’t gonna happen.  So to all you ‘christians’ who say ‘nobody dies from lack of healthcare’ I say I hope there is a Hell and you burn in it forever!

In 2016, Kenneth Krell, director of Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls, testified to state politicians that Idaho’s version of ObamaCare is being directly blamed for the deaths of 1-thousand Idahoans since 2013, by denying access to healthcare: “And I kept asking myself, how could this be? How, in a state like Idaho where we care about each other, could I be seeing deaths and really damaging illness on a nearly daily basis as a result of failure to expand Medicaid that cost tangible lives? It’s difficult to understand.” 

By the way, idiot mormon Labrador is hoping to be ‘elected’ the next govna of Idaho!

World’s largest C-141B Starlifter model?

In June 2016, members of the USAF’s 437th Maintenance Squadron sheet metal and corrosion shop at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, got a new project; restore an old C-141B model.

The giant model was originally built back in the day when the USAF used C-141 Starlifters.  It was built to represent a C-141 that crashed in 1982, killing its crew.

After only a few months the model was fully restored in August 2016.

Airman 1st Class Drew Maifeaphomsamouth, Technical SergeantAndrew Finley, Airman 1st Class Michael Mooney, Airman 1st Class Shawn Casey, Airman Riley Carter and Senior Airman William Treiber were proud to have restored what might be the world’s largest C-141 model.
