Incomplete (tip-o-the iceberg) list of U.S. Christian shutdowns, layoffs and Rapture oddities for the Gregorian (western christian calendar) month of January 2018.

This prophetic video is about the demise of christianity:

In an act of desperation (and greed) the Switzerland based ICF Church is now taking Bitcoin for tithe and donations!

“We can’t prevent evil, and trying to prevent it by taking away the freedom of law-abiding people is not a price our society should pay.”-HomeSchool Association of California, regarding the 13 adults and children rescued from their “Good Christian Family” home-school-hell in Perris

Pew Research Center: “Jehovah’s Witnesses (75%) and Mormons (70%) say abortion should be illegal in all or most cases”

Alabama: Presbyterian-agnostic Warren Buffet owned clothing maker Fruit of the Loom laid off 72 people at its Russell Brand’s factory in Alexander City.  Local news media reported that ever since Warren Buffet bought the operation (in 2006) there have been continuous layoffs, at one time there were more than 1-thousand people working at the factory, now there’s less than 5-hundred.

Arkansas: Presbyterian founded, Bentonville based Walmart revealed the truth behind their pay raises and bonuses, by suddenly shutting down dozens of Sam’s Clubs and Walmarts killing thousand of jobs, plus announcing intentions to layoff 1-thousand corporate level employees between now and the end of 2019!

California: In the Los Angeles area, church vandalisms are so common place that a taxpayer funded House of Worship Task Force has been created.  The task force arrested a man suspected of set fire to the Church of the Angels, the Resurrection Catholic Church and another Episcopal church, as well as spray painting Bible verses on the Ancient Church of the East Mar Shaleeta Parish.  The House of Worship Task Force believes the man they arrested has been vandalizing churches since February 2017.  In Santa Maria, the former married pastor couple of Church for Life being sued for sex crimes.  The lawsuit accuses the husband and wife pastors of sex crimes that took place from 2014 to 2016, and says other church leaders knew about it.  God powerless to stop ‘his’ Seventh Day Adventists from killing multiple healthcare operations; Adventist Health Sonora eliminating 135 jobs in April, Adventist Health Feather River shutting down 72 jobs gone by April, Adventist Health Glendale shutting down 167 jobs gone by April, Adventist Health Simi Valley shutting down 70 jobs gone by April, Adventist Health Reedley and Selma eliminating 115 jobs, Adventist Health Hanford eliminating 205 jobs, Adventist Health Saint Helena eliminating 2-hundred jobs, Adventist Health Corporate in Roseville eliminating 229 jobs!  Methodist founded Tyson Foods issued a layoff  WARN for its chicken plucking ops in San Diego, 79 jobs gone mid-March.

Georgia:  The congregation of the 98 years old Sanctuary Village of Power (formerly Underwood Methodist Church) has been given a vacate notice by the new owner of the property.  The greedy owner worships money and is rumored to have plans for building a Starbucks where the iconic church building now stands.  Methodist co-founded Coca Cola embarked on a mission to shutdown bottling/warehouse ops, 430 jobs across the U.S. gone!  Somebody stole the Lighthouse Community Church‘s van, instead of ‘god’ an Hollywood actor worked a miracle and bought the church anew van.

Idaho: Signs of religio-class warfare as rich Mormon dominated taxpayer funded School District 25 in Bannock County wants to end what it calls “student self-segregation” It involves a decades old rivalry between rich-Mormon-brat-prep’s and wannabe-prep’s Highland High School and everybody else’s (including poor working class Mormons) Pocatello High School (aka Pokey High).  ‘Christian’ Gem State lawmakers supporting a bill that will expand the use of taxpayer funded prisoners in the agriculture industry!  

Illinois:    A mysterious fire burned the attic of the 1-hundred years old Emmanuel Memorial Episcopal Church, it was also revealed that a couple of years ago a mysterious fire burned the church’s altar.   God powerless to stop the Archdiocese of Chicago from shutting down five schools (Saint Cyprian School, Holy Cross School, Incarnation School, Our Lady of the Ridge School, Saint Michael School)  due to The Rapture, I mean what I call DSS.

Indiana: The Unitarian Universalist Church in West Lafayette targeted with vandalism for its support of LGBT, and possibly because it is anti-Trump.

Kansas:  Some parents of students at Herington Elementary School stood up to christian bullying and halted the 1st Amendment violation of Bibles being forced upon public elementary school students“The district’s actions in assisting the Gideons in distributing Bibles to elementary students represents a clear breach of the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution and we hereby demand assurances that this practice will discontinue immediately.”-Appignani Humanist Legal Center

Kentucky: Southern Acres Christian Church banned just under a dozen members for disagreeing with the church pastor! Isn’t christian ‘democracy’ wonderful?

Louisiana: God powerless to stop Mother Earth from halting Mount Olive AME Church‘s food program.  The program feeds about 3-hundred people everyday, but was halted when unusually cold weather damaged water pipes and a water heater.  7-hundred members of the Northwest Louisiana Baptist Association are so afeared of what’s happening to the United States, and their idea of christianity, that they held an emergency prayer fest and asked ‘god’ to protect cops, the “persecuted church”, missionaries and church leaders.

Maine: Methodist founded Goodwill shutting down its 50 years old Lewiston thrift store, because sales are too low.

Massachusetts: A woman charged with stealing more than $20-thousand USD from The First Church of Deerfield while she worked as an administrative assistant there.  Church leaders discovered the theft after the woman was charged with stealing money from a condominium association.   God powerless to stop the shutdown of ‘his’ 1-hundred years old Our Lady of the Rosary Church, due to lack of tithe paying members.

Saint Paul’s United Church of Christ

Minnesota: 15 years ago Pilgrim Lutheran Church started services  to bring alienated christians back to church by offering alternative sermon-less night time services, so far only 250 people per month attend things like Celtic Service, Nordic Service and Compline for a New Millennium.  The bankruptcy mediator for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis suddenly quit, and refused to say why.   Taxpayers forced to pay for the repairing of two churches, Central Presbyterian Church and Friends of Historic Virginia Street Church, under the guise of preserving historic buildings.

Missouri: Gov’na Eric Greitens wants lawmakers to extend a taxpayer funded college scholarship program for graduates of taxpayer funded high schools to graduates of privately funded (christian?) high schools.  A now former church volunteer charged with hiding cameras in the toilet rooms of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church.  God wasn’t on his side as his own video cameras recorded him doing the evil deed.

New York: In Blauvelt, the now vacant 205 years old Greenbush Presbyterian Church has been sold to a foreign Catholic church based in India!  The Greenbush Presbyterian Church was vacated in October 2016 due to disappearing members (The Rapture?).  NYC based The Episcopal Church’s Church Pension Group (CPG) reporting that their latest survey revealed “big changes” affecting church clergy.   Some of the changes include a big decline in full time employment by the the church with a single position, with gradually (predictable) increasing pay.  The current trends now show more part time work, clergy working multiple church positions, and some clergy even forced to get jobs outside the church to support themselves.   In Manhattan-NYC, after 33 years Coogan’s shutdown due to a massive $40-thousand USD per month increase in rent by the ‘christian’ owners of the property (New York Presbyterian Hospital)!  God powerless to stop the shutdown of ‘his’ 94 years old (surviving The Great Depression and numerous recessions) Saint John Villa Academy, apparently god needs money because The Sisters are conducting a study to see how much money would be made from selling the school.  Influenza more powerful than ‘god’ as Catholic churches in Buffalo halt the use of wine during Mass and forbid church members from shaking each others hands, due to the flu epidemic.

North Carolina: The Summit Church doesn’t think there are enough churches in the world, promising to build 1-thousand new churches over the next 50 years.  Leaders say it’s “God’s Plan A for reaching a lost world.”  I got news for you, that’s been the plan from the very beginning of christendom about 2-thousand years ago!

Ohio:  God powerless to stop ‘his’ Premier Health owned Good Samaritan Hospital, on Philadelphia Drive in Dayton, from shutting down.   1-thousand-6-hundred jobs affected by the end of 2018, due to a plan by Premier Health to ‘repurpose’ the hospital property!  Quaker founded, Cincinnati based Macy’s announced it will continue shutting down stores through 2018, plus eliminate 5-thousand jobs!

Tennessee: Highpoint Church hires investigators to investigate one of their own pastors, and to investigate former church leaders, after women accused the pastor of sex crimes.  The now former pastor (who confessed to the crimes in front of his congregation earlier this month) says he admitted to a sex act with a teenager during his job interview with church elders, which means church leaders knew of the crime before they hired him!

Texas: Remember the baby splitting trial of King Solomon?  The leader of LIFT Community Church now suing the leader of new competitive church Lift Frisco, basically for threatening territorial domination of the Dallas-Fort Worth area!  In Austin, an illegal immigrant family is taking sanctuary in Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, for the second time!  Presbyterian-Methodist-Episcopalian co-founded Irving based toilet paper and disposable diaper maker Kimberly Clark announced plans to shutdown ten factories worldwide, killing-off 5-thousand jobs over the next year-and-a-half!  Kimberly Clark administrators blame their efforts to reduce costs by $550-million USD, by 2022, on the U.S. population Death Spiral (not enough babies being born).

Utah: The new LDS (Later Day Saints) leaders openly support protecting the children of illegal immigrants, known as Dreamers.

Washington: A child is being blamed for a fire in historic Saint Patrick Catholic Church which destroyed the nursery room.  The original Saint Patrick Catholic Church was destroyed by fire in 1905.

Washington DC:  Congress snuck into its latest funding bill provisions to use taxpayer dollars so FEMA can rebuild churches destroyed by natural disasters.  I guess ‘god’ isn’t powerful enough to get the job done, so FEMA has to do it!

West Virginia: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the largest and most powerful of ‘mormon’ churches) hit by a lawsuit claiming LDS officials knew about and covered up a local leader’s sexual abuse of children for at least five years.  The local Mormon leader was found guilty of at least two cases of sex crimes and sentenced to 75 years in prison.  The Salt Lake Tribune reported that LDS leaders promoted the man as a role model for youth.

Wisconsin:  God powerless to stop ‘his’ Saint Gregory Catholic School from shutting down due to lack of students, apparently they’re unable to meet the minimum of 20 students required for next school year.

U.S. Christian Rapture, December 2017: “SHE WAS BASICALLY STALKED BY THE CHURCH…”

“No man can work for two masters, for either he will hate one and will love the other, or he will honor one and the other he will ignore. You cannot work for God and for money.”-Matthew 6:24, Aramaic Bible

“But the root of all these evils is the love of money, and there are some who have desired it and have erred from the faith and have brought themselves many miseries.”-1 Timothy 6:10 Aramaic Bible

“And Yeshua [Jesus of Nazareth] entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And he said to them, It is written: ‘My house will be called the House of prayer, but you have made it a den of robbers.’ “-Matthew 21:12-13 Aramaic Bible

“Yeshua said to them, ‘Give what is Caesar’s to Caesar and what is God’s to God.’ And they marveled at him.”-Mark 12:17 Aramaic Bible

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.-1st Amendment, U.S. Constitution

WARN=Worker Adjustment & Retraining Notification

Former employees of religious non-profits might not qualify for unemployment assistance (or even be counted as unemployed): “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.”

Dumbing Down the U.S.A., January 2018:“LET’S PISS IN HIS MOUTH.”


U.S. government shenanigans, January 2018:SEX & DRUGS = THE AMERICAN WAY!

U.S. food crisis, January 2018: “IT’S TIME TO ADAPT OR DIE”


Idaho Militia ranked 2nd only to U.S. Army!

Idaho Army National Guard’s Regional Training Site–Maintenance Ordnance Training Battalion is big and bad and getting bigger and badder!

During a November 2017 comprehensive accreditation inspection the Idaho training facility scored an overall 99.2%, getting 100% in five of the seven categories.

The facility is used by hundreds of Guard and U.S. Army personnel each year.  Plans are to expand the training site by 2022,  doubling student enrollment to about 850.

According to military reports the expansion of Idaho’s Maintenance Ordnance Training Battalion, including the creation of additional training battalions, could make it an equal to the U.S. Army’s Fort Benning, Georgia!



California fires make at least 1-million tons of waste!

14FEB2018 (02:43 UTC-07 Tango 06)  25 Bahman 1396/28 Jumada l-Ula 1439/29 Ren-Yin 4715

Mother Earth has yet again rendered human efforts to stop climate change impotent.  Not only did the October 2017 Northern California wildfires pump massive particulate matter into the atmosphere, but at least 1-million tons of waste was created on the ground!

Fire clean-up in Santa Rosa, California, 02FEB2018

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the California Office of Emergency Services report that so far more than 1-million tons of debris has been removed from Sonoma County.

Sonoma County is known for its wine.  1-million tons is equal to four million barrels of wine, or 200-thousand acres (about 81-thousand hectares) of vines.

But 1-million tons is just the beginning, the October 2017 wildfires affected Napa, Lake and Mendocino counties.  And don’t forget all the other California fires in 2017.

You silly humans, spending your precious tax dollars trying to stop climate change!  Evolution says ‘adapt or go extinct’!


M777 : Proof the United States is the tool of the British empire!

13FEB2018 (13:02 UTC-07 Tango 06)  24 Bahman 1396/27 Jumada l-Ula 1439/28 Ren-Yin 4715

“Samuel, notify your men: the British are coming.”-General Oliver Prescott, 19APR1775

Washington (state) National Guard train-up on their new M777, 12APR2017

The U.S. Army’s Watervliet Arsenal has begun work making parts for the M777A2 artillery system, as part of a $50-million USD sale to India.  But it’s not the United States that’s profiting.

The current Indian M777 deal is $50-million, but at one point the Indian Army wanted about $800-million worth of the high-tech cannons, the Indian taxpayers said no to that.  Contrary to the decades of lies about India gaining independence from the British empire, India is actually an autonomous (self-governing) member of The Commonwealth of Nations (the official term for the British empire).  And the company raking in the profits from the M777 sale to India is BAE Systems, based in the capitol of The Commonwealth, the United Kingdom.

But India is not the only Commonwealth member to get BAE’s profitable M777 cannon; Australia starting in 2010, and Canada starting in 2005 (initially through the U.S. Marine Corps).   While the M777 is built in the U.S., BAE is the profiteer.

BAE (formerly British Aerospace BAe, and GEC-Marconi/Marconi Electronic Systems MES) designs and builds anything from submarines to killer A-I robots.  Nothing but death and destruction, for the profit of Queen and Country.

Revolutionaries attack BAE’s Australia office with paint and sledgehammers, December 2015

In the late 1990s, under the Bill Clinton regime, MES began taking over U.S. defense contractors.  In 1999, MES and BAe merged to create BAE Systems, apparently to stop a U.S. defense contractor from taking over MES.  In 2001, the same year the False Flag War on Terror began, BAE Systems aggressively invaded the U.S. defense industry, taking over many U.S. companies, including cyber security companies.  Prior to World War Two, the U.S. government was officially anti-monarchist, anti-imperialist.  Unfortunately for American War for Independence General Oliver Prescott, the British are here!




The top buyers of U.S. properties are from China, followed by British empire (Commonwealth of Nations) members India, Canada and United Kingdom.

The Department of Defense led Opioid Summit was trying to find a way to bring together healthcare organizations, local law enforcement and the military in an attempt to create a national ‘collective response’ to the record level of drug abuse in the United States, without the President having to declare Martial Law.

The pseudo-martial-law organization was referred to as the U.S. ‘interagency’.
