“God’s Plan A for reaching a lost world.” : U.S. Christian Rapture, January 2018

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.

Connecticut: Police arrested a church employee who was hiding in the First Congregational Church, for assaulting his mother.  The female pastor of the church tried to protect the man by claiming that police are not allowed to make arrests in churches, she  promptly quit her job when it was clear police would not comply with her holy-than-thou demands.

Delaware: A former priest with Catholic Diocese of Wilmington charged with child rape.  The alleged crime took place 25 years ago.

Florida: First United Methodist Church of Miami sold some of its land to a property developer, for $55-million USD.

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.

Michigan:  Seventh Day Adventist founded Kellogg issued a layoff WARN for its RTEC (Ready-To-Eat Cereal) Plant, 14 jobs lost as part of its plan “…to simplify and streamline operations in our North American cereal network.”  A man was arrested and accused of breaking into church services (Griswold Street Baptist Church, Bridges Church and First Presbyterian Church) and threatening to whack people with a hammer if the didn’t repent.

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 Mexico: God powerless to stop ‘his’ Holy Cross Hospital from suddenly laying off 12 people due to a new Medicare payment method.

New Jersey: The owners of bankrupt Toys R Us, which includes Mormon-Mitt Romney co-founded Bain Capital, shutting down at least 182 stores by the end of Spring 2018.

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!  

Oklahoma: Christian Science Monitor explains How cattle rustling and drugs are roiling rural America.

Pennsylvania:  The now former youth leader of Oxford Valley Chapel pled guilty to molesting two teenage girls, and was sentenced to just under two years in prison.

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.”

“closed indefinitely”: Idaho’s Continued Economic Destruction, 2017

Incomplete list of economic related events in the U.S. Gem State of Idaho, 2017.

January: In the overwhelmingly christian (Mormon) dominated south eastern part of The Gem State, some christians actually campaigned against Pastor Jacqualine ‘Big Momma’ Thomas’ planned homeless shelter in Pocatello! After a local Muslim doctor started the financial ball rolling in favor of the homeless shelter (waking up true local Christians who had money to donate), a group of christians went to the city council to point out that the Sublette Street property was not zoned for “transitional housing”.  The Mormon dominated city promptly revoked the temporary operating permit.  Pastor Big Momma commented to local news media that she’s taking this as a sign that god has a better location in mind.

February: Burley based King’s Variety continues its slow death spiral, announcing it will continue shutting down stores.  King’s is down to just 19 stores across six states: “The retail climate has radically changed in the past decade….Brick and mortar stores need feet and faces to survive as we have salaries, rents and other costs to cover. Unfortunately for us that is not the current landscape.”

For some reason the state Department of Labor sat on a WARN from Pocatello based call center operator Mountain West Research, until February 2017.   The notice is dated October 2016 and reveals that 194 people lost their jobs (the state Dept. of Labor listing doesn’t say when the layoffs actually took place)!  Just in case I missed something I checked local news media reports and found nothing about this huge, and apparently sudden layoff.  It’s not the first time the company suddenly killed jobs, Mountain West Research did the same thing in Idaho Falls, back in 2012,  but that mass layoff got the attention of the local news media (I wonder why the Pokey layoffs were missed?).  The Pocatello Mountain West Research location on 675 Yellowstone Avenue is currently listed as available for rent by Premier Properties, however, its website is still up-and-running and lists an address of 1110 Yellowstone Avenue. 

March: Vanity went bankrupt dead, shutting down all 137 stores across 27 U.S. states, including stores in Chubbuck, Idaho Falls, Boise, Coeur d’Alene and Twin Falls.

Ammo maker Federal Cartridge (Federal Premium Ammunition) suddenly furloughed 1-hundred employees at its Lewiston factory, blaming hunters and Donald Trump: “…we experienced a challenging retail environment due in part to a weak hunting season and the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.”

As I warned back in 2016, Islamic extremist U.S. ally Saudi Arabia’s funding cuts to Idaho State University (ISU, in Pocatello) could result in layoffs. Local news media reporting that ISU is dealing with a $12-million USD shortfall and the loss of 35% of its Middle Eastern students!  ISU admin warned of layoffs if state taxpayers aren’t forced to make up the funding difference!  (Related: SAUDI ARABIA TAKES OVER TEXAS OIL SUPPLY & SOUTHEAST U.S. FUEL SALES!)

Also in Pocatello, after six years Element Outfitters shutting down soon, the owners are focusing on their other retail operations saying “We’re just consolidating and becoming a lot more efficient”.  They told local news media that while their brick-n-mortar-store sales have flat-lined their internet sales are “growing strongly.”

After 17 years Affinity, one of the largest mental health services provider in the Boise area, was shutdown following a raid by the IRS. Hundreds of employees now unemployed and at least 8-hundred patients with nowhere to go.  Local news media reported that the federal Internal Revenue Service has yet to explain the raid.

Burley based King’s Variety shutdown its 14 years old, and recently remodeled, store in Orofino.  Local news media now say all remaining 21 stores will shutdown.   Dollar Express issued a shutdown WARN for its Emmett store, due to the sudden takeover by Dollar General.     In Idaho Falls, after 20 years Park Avenue Antique Mall shutdown, the owners were forced to retire after an ice-jam caused water damage to the building, and they don’t have enough money to fix it and maintain their retail business.   However, since they own the building they hope to find a sucker, I mean people who’ll want to rent it.  In the same area, The Collective Cache shutdown, the building is being renovated for a retail business that’s moving from The Grand Teton Mall to the former Collective Cache location.

Idaho’s U.S. Senators Jim Risch and Mike Crapo (along with David Perdue of Georgia) reintroduced a bill that would make labor strikes at U.S. ports illegal, for the benefit of foreign companies: “By qualifying the ‘slowdown’ tactic as an unfair labor practice, this bill will ensure businesses can continue to import and export their goods…..:”

April:  In Nampa,  after 44 years the Yesteryear Shoppe shutdown due to eviction after the lease was canceled.  The owner of the shop blamed his crashing revenues on radically changing trends.

Georgia based payment processor TSYS (Total SYstem Services) laying off 64 people as it shuts down its operations in Boise, in an effort to “focus to our business model.”  Also in Boise, Marvell Semiconductor laying off 23 people in June.

Sears Holdings announced that the Coeur d’Alene Kmart will shutdown in October.

 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows that almost 40% of Idahoans have ‘pre-existing’ medical conditions that would prevent them from getting health insurance.  The Washington based franchise owner of Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers, ET Research, went bankrupt and shutdown its Boise office without warning.  The parent company in Iowa said ET Research was in so much debt they owed money to 1-thousand-2-hundred creditors!   A Rexburg woman had her insurance license revoked by state officials after she filed false medical claims. 

An estimated 100 million pounds of spoiled onions have been disposed of in Idaho and Oregon following a winter of unprecedented snowfall.

Eastern Idaho potato growers are at least a week behind normal, and even further behind compared to their early starts the past two seasons. 

May:  In Boise, after 45 years of six to ten hour days, six days per week, the surviving co-owner of Bow Wow Auto Parts shutting it down so she can retire.  After seven years non-profit glass recycler Usful Glassworks shutdown due to lack of funding/donations.   The Idaho Wine Commission is accusing the city of Boise of intentionally restricting the issuing of booze permits for public events.  It started last year when the city switched to issuing only one catering permit per event.  The result is that many area wineries are refusing to take part in Boise events: “As a consequence of this, we no longer…. participate in events in Boise.”-Earl Sullivan, Telaya Wine Company

Despite mormon dominated Pocatello City Council, and the Bonneville Neighborhood Association, denying her request to open a homeless shelter Pastor Jacqualine ‘Big Momma’ Thomas is still at it!  Thomas claims the new undisclosed property she’s considering is zoned residential/commercial, so there shouldn’t be a problem from ‘christian’ dominated organizations who don’t think homelessness is a problem in the Pocatello area.  Also, she just won Ms Idaho Senior Citizen! 

After decades the Chubbuck Pizza Hut joined a sibling Pocatello Pizza Hut in being suddenly shutdown

After decades the Chubbuck Pizza Hut joined a sibling Pocatello Pizza Hut in being suddenly shutdown

After years of negative customer reviews one of two Pocatello Pizza Huts quietly shutdown, as did the Pizza Hut in Chubbuck.  Both shuttered Pizza Huts were repainted olive green and are now for sale.  The owners decided to ‘consolidate’ their three Pizza Hut locations into one location in Pocatello, code for saying they weren’t making enough profits to justify all three locations.

Because of more than a decade of drought Idaho ‘lawmakers’ came up with a law changing how state controlled aquifers are recharged, now they’re claiming success as recharging efforts resulted in more than expected water capture.  However, the new law involves taxpayers paying independent canal operators to divert their water into state aquifers.  Under complicated water access ‘rights’ laws the state of Idaho is limited to how much water it can collect for its aquifers, but, by paying canal operators the state can get around the access limit.

Idaho is incorrectly known as the potato state even though potatoes are not its biggest ag product (the myth is perpetuated by the potato industry and the state government), beef is usually the biggest money making ag product in Idaho. Then  there’s fishing.  Anglers from around the U.S. come to Idaho to fish but this year the Spring chinook season was shutdown early due to low numbers of the salmon: “….we are still very concerned regarding our ability to collect brood stock for future hatchery releases. In addition, returns of natural chinook salmon in the Salmon River are far below expected and are likely to fall below the level needed for incidental hook and release mortality within those fisheries.”-Brett Bowersox, Idaho Department of Fish and Game

Insurance company BridgeSpan announced it will exit The Gem State’s ObamaCare system in 2018, due to lack of profits and “uncertainty and instability for the exchanges”.

God was completely powerless to stop ‘his’ LDS-mormon ‘elected’ U.S. congressman Raúl Rafael Labrador (now running for gov’na of Idaho) from stating “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to healthcare.”  I personally know somebody (the mother of my children) who died because she was refused access to healthcare, and she had insurance!

June:  At the beginning of 2017 it was revealed that ‘fake news’ Idaho republicans made a secret deal with Amazon to impose an internet sales tax on any Idahoan who buys online!   The Idaho Tax Commission reports that so far there’s been no significant increase in tax revenues as a result!  (more proof internet retail sales are not to blame for low brick-n-mortar sales, it’s the whole economy that’s crashing)

July:  

No more "well loved by customers" pawn shop on Yellowstone Avenue, Pocatello, Idaho.

It was discovered that 50 years old, ‘well loved by customers’ (according to Facebook postings) Shamrock Rare Coins (aka Amy’s Shamrock Coins) pawn shop in Pocatello secretly shutdown, even the official website is offline.   Mitt Romney co-founded wunderkind Staples announced it will shutdown its Pocatello store in August, falsely blaming “customers” for shopping online. (Karen Edwards, instructor at University of South Carolina’s College of Hospitality Retailing and Sport Management, stated to local news media that internet sales make up only 10%-15% of all U.S. retail sales!  And by the way, Staples sells online!)

A freedom of information request by Times-News-magicvalley.com revealed that U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) is considering Jerome as the site of a new taxpayer funded immigrant prison!   It’s the result of ICE losing access to a 3-hundred bed prison in Utah.  ICE is hoping to use the existing Jerome County Detention Center, and expand it by 60 beds.  The Times-News estimated it would cost U.S. taxpayers $1.4-million USD per year to operate an immigrant prison in Idaho.  Another newspaper, Spokesman-Review, reported that hundreds of Idahoans are protesting the plans for an immigrant prison in their backyard.

U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service reported that Gem State winter wheat and hay harvests are nearly a month early, due to climate change.

A major screw-up resulted in the closing Coeur d’Alene Kmart getting a big shipment of ‘blank’ American Apparel-Supreme branded t-shirts.  Shoppers were able to re-sell the t-shirts on ebay, until Kmart realized what was going on and removed the labels from the remaining inventory.   In Lewiston, the Sears Hometown is for sale because the franchise owners say they can’t afford to renew the license to operate it.

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

August:

 This the Chubbuck, Idaho, Walmart. Consumer Reports ranked Walmart 67th out of 68!

Chubbuck, Idaho, Walmart blames skyrocketing crime for halting 24 hours operations!

The Walmart in Chubbuck has joined other Walmarts around the U.S. in ceasing its 24 hours of being open to the public.  This comes after months of using contracted security guards to try and stop skyrocketing shoplifting.  Walmart claims the use of security guards was able to stop the theft of about $20-thousand USD worth of merchandise in just one week.  Even recent transplant to Chubbuck, Nancy Hurley, says crime has skyrocketed in the tiny (about 14-thousand people according to recent Census Bureau data, down from 18-thousand in late 1990s) east Idaho city: “When we first moved here about 12 years ago, there seemed to be very little crime, but now it’s really picked up with the drugs and the shoplifting and stuff, so it is concerning.”-interviewed by KPVI

Bye bye, Pocatello Meineke!

Blind Bat News reader ‘Catherine’ discovered the less than three years old Meineke auto repair shop, near the Westwood Mall in Pocatello, secretly shutdown.  Just ten months ago a local news paper declared the Meineke repair shop “ranked among the best performing franchises in the nation” with the “seventh best net sales-volume in the nation.”   ‘Catherine’ reported there was a note taped to the door apologizing for the sudden shutdown, but no reason for it was given.

In the sparsely populated town of Oldtown, after 23 years Ben Franklin Variety (formerly a Sprouse-Reitz prior to the 1990s) shutdown.  The now former store manager told local news media their busiest day was the last day of business.  Clothier Filson issued a shutdown WARN for its store in Post Falls, 45 jobs gone by the end of October.

“Effective immediately” the state Department of Labor Director Ken Edmunds resigned.  It could be the result of a former Labor Department employee suing the department because his personal cell phone was illegally searched! It turns out the former employee was a whistle-blower trying to save taxpayer dollars by revealing the Department of Labor was violating state purchasing laws and wasting government resources (for which he was fired, firing an employee for revealing the truth is a violation of federal law).  However, Right to Work (you over) ‘christian’ gov’na Butch Otter swears his Labor Department director did not resign over the federal lawsuit.

Canyon County reporting a record number of people being detained on ‘involuntary mental health holds’.  They set a record in July of 123 people on mental health holds, at a cost to taxpayers of $153-thousand USD.  Canyon County is now demanding state leaders spend more money building a new crisis center in their county.  So far the state is spending several millions of tax dollars on four crisis centers throughout The Gem State.

 In Nampa, state investigators accusing Southwest Idaho Treatment Center of abusing seven adult residents.  Six employees involved, two directly abusing the patients, the other four knew about it but did nothing to stop it or report it.  They are now unemployed.   The state Department of Insurance made it official and publicly released the now annual proposed ObamaCare-ACA insurance rate increases for 2018.  All ‘plans’ will go up, but the ‘Silver Plan’ will be jacked by a whopping average of 50% (one insurance provider, PacificSource Health, is skyrocketing their Silver rates by 81%)!  Employers are pissed: “There’s one thing if it was increases and the coverage was better.  The problem is……the coverage is getting less, so now I’m paying a lot for a little, and that’s a hard one to swallow.”-Shawn Lund, CFO Steel West

10 former Idaho State University athletes threatened to retract $80-thousand USD in donations if the university president and the athletic director don’t resign, because “…we believe the state of ISU athletics is at an all-time low. When comparing ISU to its Big Sky peers, it’s easy to see that ISU is at the bottom of the league in facilities. Coaches’ pay, fundraising efforts and competitive records for revenue sports are also among the worst in the Big Sky Conference.”   Then suddenly, without warning, ISU president Arthur Vailas resigned!  Officially he said he was “retiring”.  ISU also reported that ‘preliminary’ overall enrollment is down for the Fall Semester, again, despite Freshman enrollment being up by about 2-hundred.

In Twin Falls County somebody is shooting livestock.  In the past month two Llamas were killed, as well as a cattle rancher’s prize bull and heifer. A railroad track runs along the properties where the killings took place (somebody shooting from a train?).  In Bonneville County somebody shot and killed eight cows, leaving their bodies to rot, the local Sheriff believes they’ll find more dead cows.

In Idaho Falls, after 20 years Sarah’s Candy Cottage announced on Facebook that they must shutdown due to being “bought out”.

September: The Gem State’s wheat crop is down 5% over the past five years, but the quality is higher than ever.  State officials are also boasting of a multi-million USD deal with Republic of China (Taiwan) for Idaho wheat.  This might be good news for Idaho farmers but it means less of the grain available for the domestic U.S. market, which could drive prices for U.S. consumers up.

In Mormon dominated Jefferson School District 251 parents demanded George Orwell’s 1984 be banned for its sexual content. After an even bigger outcry from those who objected to such a violation of the U.S. 1st Amendment, school administrators stated “…it is simply not true that 1984 has been banned at Rigby High School.”  State law requires that high schools help students develop a four years plan to prep for college, but an investigation by East Idaho News says it ain’t happening. Counselors admitted they don’t have the staffing or financial resources to comply with state law.

IdahoEdNews reporting that the number of new teacher hires who do not have a teaching degree is at record highs, due to the fact there is a massive teacher shortage in The Gem State.

Some of Idaho’s ObamaCare Your Health Idaho board members are questioning the state’s decision to hire ‘christian’ Saint Luke’s Health System to ‘help’ people pick an ObamaCare insurance plan.  Not only is the state using taxpayer dollars to pay Saint Luke’s but Saint Luke’s could directly benefit as one of the ObamaCare-ACA insurance providers is directly connected to Saint Luke’s (SelectHealth).  Tennessee based RCCH HealthCare Partners suddenly laid off 62 people at Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston, as a result of the ‘christian’ Lewiston hospital being taken over by RCCH in May.  State government to get $438-thousand USD as a result of the EpiPen Medicaid rebate scandal.  I wonder what they’ll do with the money?

While the state’s Department of Labor boasts record low unemployment numbers, and despite some rural counties reporting record low population numbers, the U.S. Census Bureau is reporting record numbers of homeless people in the sparsely populated Gem State and it’s only going up!  Also, a state run homeless Point-In-Time counting program claims a 10% drop in homeless people since 2016, but the Vice President of Housing and Support Programs, Brady Ellis, admits “We believe there’s a considerable number of more homeless individuals…..a lot of variables there in terms of identifying them and being able to include them in the numbers we use.”  It should also be noted that the Point-In-Time homeless survey counts only those people who are willing to answer the survey questions.   East Idaho News recently conducted an experiment to see how beggars were being treated in eastern Idaho.

After years of claiming the economy was growing, and denying there was a growing homeless problem, and of treating homeless people like criminals to be rounded up and put in ‘concentration camps’, and despite officially record low unemployment numbers, the city of Boise, students at Boise State University, and Ada County, are relenting and spending millions of taxpayer and donor dollars building first ever dedicated homeless services called Our Path Home and New Path Community Housing!  And in a No-Shit-Sherlock! moment a homeless advocate admitted that past homeless policies, which basically criminalized people for being homeless, failed to stop homelessness“Though we were well-intentioned, we as a community were retraumatizing the same population we were trying to help. It’s a very traumatic process to be, let’s say, discharged from a hospital to an emergency shelter, to putting your name on maybe 13 waiting lists around the county, to having to retell your story 13 times, to not being sure when your name next comes up on the list.”-Wyatt Schroeder, CATCH of Ada County

Despite ‘elected’ leaders constantly claiming growth in the state, the population in the Clark County is officially crashing and burning.  The U.S. Census Bureau ranks Clark County among the 15 most sparsely populated counties in the United States at only one person for every two square miles!  The population has been declining since 2000 (which, as I’ve written before, is when the economy went south for Idaho, and has yet to recover), and is expected to continue declining (there’s only 860 people currently in the county).  Declining local populations are another reason why state leaders are accepting additional federal bribes, I mean funding to take in immigrants and refugees at record numbers.

Crashing local population numbers might be one reason Idaho leaders are boasting record low unemployment numbers!

The Gem State’s worsening problem with its foster care Guardians ad Litem (GaL) program resulted in the legislature increasing taxpayer funding by 75% (most GaLs are private volunteer organizations), and it made national news with U.S. News & World Report. 

A lawsuit by Shoshone-Bannock Tribes revealed that chemical company FMC stopped paying for the storage of hazardous waste on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation (known as Eastern Michaud Flats Superfund site).  FMC paid the fees until suddenly tearing down its chemical factory and abandoning the site in 2002, yet continued to store hazardous waste there.  A federal court ruled FMC owes the tribe $19.5-million USD.

More shenanigans for Idaho’s prison system after a man arrested for driving intoxicated was put into a cell with a convicted mass-murderer.  Yep, the mass-murderer killed the drunk guy!

The new owner of the only funeral home in Valley County discovered that the former county coroner was ‘disappearing’ the bodies of locals who recently died.  Eventually an investigation by Idaho State Police was launched.  However the new owner of the funeral home said this “We were getting calls from families wanting to know where their loved ones were. I didn’t have any clue where the bodies were…..    He was keeping the bodies at his home in the coroner’s truck….”   Apparently the former coroner, Nathan Hess, was selling the bodies in Boise because he’s been charged with “using public position for personal gain”.

For the third time in a row another sudden resignation of a public official, this time over sexual harassment and even “violence”.  It was revealed that in August that the Controller’s Office Chief of Staff Dan Goicoechea suddenly resigned after an investigation was launched into claims by a state employee of “sexual advancements”and “threats of violence” by Goicoechea. The employee said she was not the only one threatened and that such acts had been ongoing with other employees before she was hired.  What’s also interesting is that state government officials waited a month before revealing the resignation.

Another ‘elected’ official revealed to be lying, this time about her residency status.  From 2010 to 2016 Priscilla Giddings claimed residency in Ada County, according to property tax records, yet she was elected as the state representative for Idaho County in 2016.  State law says you must reside in the county you want to represent for at least one year before running for state office.  State law also says you can claim property tax exemption only for the home you live in.

October: Something to cry over, onion crop yields in Idaho and Oregon are 30% smaller compared to last year, resulting in less of a supply, causing a doubling of prices for consumers (50 pound bag yellow onions now averaging $10, last year it was $5.50).  The smaller harvest is blamed on the weather.

The biggest electric utility company in The Gem State, Idaho Power, is demanding customers fork-over $220-million USD to pay for a new hydroelectric dam on the border with Oregon!

 Medicare Health Plans ranked Gem State doctors as the most overworked in the United States!  Idaho is ranked in 49th place for number of doctors available to the general public.  The state Department of Insurance claims worker comp insurance rates for employers will drop by 5.8% in 2018.   Idahoans on Medicare part D will pay the highest national average premium for their doctor issued drugs; $65.52.  Safe Haven Health Care issued a WARN, 117 jobs in Pocatello and Chubbuck gone by November!  

In Pocatello, ON Semiconductor got a $335-thousand USD state taxpayer funded grant to create five new jobs.  But most of the grant money will actually go towards retraining existing employees.  Taxpayers continue funding the ongoing FBI data center project in Pocatello.  The project started a year and a half ago, but only now had an official groundbreaking ceremony (last year ignorant local news media said the project would be done by now).  The Federal Bureau of Investigation says it’ll be one of three such ‘core enterprise facilities’ in the U.S., which are meant to save taxpayers money by consolidating existing data centers (less operating costs, including less people) and by using the so called cloud.

 Idaho taxpayer funded France based public transportation contractor Transdev-Valley Regional Transit-ValleyRide issued a WARN, 102 Boise jobs gone in November!  American Falls getting a state taxpayer funded grant of $20-thousand USD to fix-up its water system, however, city taxpayers still have to come up with an additional $20-thousand.  Iona City wants to issue $3.9-billion USD in bonds (debt that has to be paid back by all you happy taxpayers) to improve its water system, which will cause water bills to go up by $19 per month (I live in the city of Chubbuck and they issued so many bonds, most without our knowledge, that our basic [not counting the per thousand gallon water use rate] water/trash bills went from $39 per month in the late 1990s to almost $1-hundred now!  And they recently issued another $3-million in bonds for “property improvement” projects, which we taxpayers have to eventually payoff!).

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) survey reports that one in four Gem State high school students are bullied, prescription drug abuse is up and that teen suicide contemplation is at a ten years high!  The local economy is so bad that marching band students at Pocatello High School couldn’t afford to pay the mandatory fees and had to turn to a GoFundMe operation so they could attend competitions (a far cry from when my eldest daughter was a proud Pokey marching band member, and we could barely afford the fees then)!  Speaking of bad economies,eleven cash-strapped schools got federal USDA taxpayer funded grant money for much needed new kitchen equipment.  Also, 120 cash-strapped schools on the eastern side of the state took part in a pathetic ‘two-day five-minute’ Idaho Lottery scratcher contest, it was the largest act of desperation, I mean scratcher contest to date!   Dietrich School District quietly settle a boy-on-boy sexual assault and racism lawsuit.  One football player was sexually attacked by three other football players in the high school locker room in 2015.  The details of the settlement are currently sealed in federal court.

 The South Fork Archery Range being for forced to shutdown because the city of Idaho Falls is refusing to renew the lease, local news reports say the city owned electrical utility is planning to use the land for a substation.    In Bannock County the Sheriff is again begging cash-strapped taxpayers to agree to fork-over $16-million USD to expand the prison, due to prison overcrowding in the Mormon dominated county.   While Bannock County struggles with prison overcrowding, Ada County (home of the state capital Boise) was awarded a MacArthur Foundation’s Safety and Justice Challenge $1-million USD grant to shape up its ‘criminal justice’ system.  The piddly grant will create eight new jobs to combat the skyrocketing prison population. The Gem State has yet to comply with the federal police-state Homeland Security on issuing federally tracked Real-IDs, however, the state Department of Transportation announced it will begin doing so in 2018, so get ready to fork-over some big bucks so Big Brother can track you!  For the second month in a row another state official resigned without warning, this time Republican Brandon Hixon suddenly resigned after it was revealed he was under criminal investigation by Caldwell Police, supposedly for sex crimes.

November: In Rexburg, after 46 years Targhee Sports shutting down in January 2018, as well as Duck Creek Pawn, the co-owners of the stores blame a “bad business deal” that’s forcing them to sell the land the stores are on.

Sears Holdings announced the Kmart in Ammon will shutdown in January 2018.

After 28 years in Chubbuck, it was revealed that restaurant Taquiera La Costa suddenly shutdown because the immigrant owner failed to become a legal resident/citizen and had to move back to Mexico.  He swears he’ll be back when his ‘paperwork’ is approved.  In Pocatello, after eight years locally run restaurant Efresh-The Gathering Place suddenly shutdown, the owner blaming the sudden escalation in corporate big-box restaurants: “There were so many restaurants that came into town really quickly and people decided to go there and just being a local little business, we felt that hit.”-Emily Fisher, interviewed by KIFI

One month after issuing a mass-layoff WARN, the SafeHaven care center in Pocatello mysteriously burned to the ground.  The residents were evacuated, but the building is a $2-million USD loss.  Fire inspectors say the fire was not arson, but are calling for a review of national fire code.  The fire started in the attic of the building, apparently in an area where no fire sprinkler system was required under current national fire code.    

Enrollment in public schools is slowing down, except where immigrants/refugee populations are on the increase, like in Twin Falls and Boise areas.  Even with immigrant/refugees coming into the state, this school year’s total statewide enrollments were only 581 higher than last year.

Clearwater Research issued a WARN, 101 jobs in Boise gone right after Xmas!

The pastor of Candlelight Christian Fellowship is endorsing the Mormon politician Raul Labrador.  Raúl Rafael Labrador once said “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to healthcare.”  Candlelight Christian Fellowship could face investigation by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for openly endorsing a political candidate, according to Robert Tuttle, professor of law and religion at George Washington University Law School.

 Recently appointed (not elected) state-level senator from Idaho Falls, Tonny Potts, was revealed to have gone chapter 7 bankrupt busted back in March. Potts was appointed to his senator job by Right to Work (you over) gov’na Butch Otter in October.  Current state level representative Ryan Kerby got a slap-on-the-wrist for committing a criminal act while he was superintendent for School District 372 (aka New Plymouth School District).  According to the Professional Standards Commission’s reviewKerby “willfully or deliberately” submitted a falsified teacher qualification report.  Kerby can challenge the slap-on-the-wrist letter of reprimand.     More court proven cases of voter fraud as a man who lost his ‘right’ to vote (due to being on criminal probation) somehow voted in this month’s elections.  Ada County elections employees warning that the three years old taxpayer funded  Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program doesn’t work, for a simple reason: “We learned the hard way that there are many people who share names and birth dates across the country.”-Phil McGrane, Ada County chief deputy clerk

The abandoned JJ North’s in 2013

December:  At the Pine Ridge Mall in Chubbuck, after about a decade of vacancy the old JJ North’s buffet restaurant was finally torn down.

Finally torn down, 01 DEC 2017

Finally torn down, 01 DEC 2017

Black Bear Diner, Chubbuck, IdahoWithout warning Black Bear Diner-Joby Management shutdown its less than two years old Chubbuck restaurant, telling local news media that if it wasn’t shutdown immediately they wouldn’t be able to issue final pay to the employees, as many as 57 jobs (depending on the local news source) suddenly gone one week before Xmas, a now pissed-off former employee Nathan Barney said “They called us in for a meeting at 8:30 this morning and told us they were closing the restaurant. They gave us unemployment papers and said Merry Christmas.”  Chubbuck Black Bear Diner no moreLocal news media speculated that there are too many restaurants in the area, including several other Joby Management owned restaurants. You can thank local politicians who’ve been enticing national chain restaurants to move into the area for several years now.

Suddenly shutdown the Wednesday before Xmas!

Suddenly shutdown the Wednesday before Xmas!

Also in Chubbuck, the local office of temporary employment agency Personnel Plus shutdown without warning just days before Xmas.  Sometime after Xmas a sign was posted saying it was “closed  indefinitely”

"Closed indefinitely"

“Closed indefinitely”

 Insiders told me the temp agency suddenly lost all its Pocatello/Chubbuck area ’employer clients’, and that of all the Personnel Plus offices throughout Idaho the Chubbuck (officially, and incorrectly, referred to as their Pocatello) office was the only one that had consistent trouble finding temp work for its employees.  

The Walmart in Ammon joined the Chubbuck Walmart in halting 24 hours operations, but the manager in Ammon told local news media it was part of a larger corporate plan to halt 24 hours store ops in order to save money.

California based clothier GAP shutting down its 15 years old Old Navy store in Twin Falls, in January 2018,  as part of a plan to shutdown 2-hundred stores.

 The Huckleberry Jam Festival two day music event will not return for 2018, due to lack of attendance (organizers claim they’ll return when they’ve figured out how to actually make money off it).  One local news outlet pointed out that there were other music events going on around the same time, indicating that maybe there are too many music venues for sparsely populated Idaho.

The Gem State’s utility commision caved in and approved Idaho Power’s $220-million USD extortion of customers to pay for a new hydroelectric dam on the border with Oregon!

The state Board of Education now claims that the statewide teacher exodus is costing taxpayers $6.8-million USD!   IdahoEdNews revealed that a taxpayer funded program to trick high school students into going to college is a dismal failure“That’s a lot of money for something where we’ve not seen outcomes improve….”-state level Representative Wendy Horman, Idaho Falls

Your Health Idaho reports a 10% drop in ObamaCare-ACA enrollments for 2018, compared to 2017, despite an extended sign-up timeline and federal taxpayer subsidies.  In eastern Idaho, 15 doctors are taking a chance and building their own clinics in two locations, accusing the current healthcare system of failing the local population.   Healthcare is still so bad in Idaho prisons that one prisoner had to almost kill himself to get treatment for a flesh eating infection. He’s still alive but his leg was amputated. 

MORE DECLINE: NO MORE XMAS LIGHTS FOR CHUBBUCK? THE TRUTH ABOUT GENTRIFICATION

IDAHO’S ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION 2016: “WE PLAN TO SELL IT DOWN TO THE BONES.” “…IT’S CRAPPY…!”

“our sisters and brothers….are being dehumanized.” Death Spiral confirmed! : U.S. Christian Rapture, August 2017

Incomplete list of U.S. Christian shutdowns, layoffs and Rapture oddities for the Gregorian month of August 2017.

“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

I want to point out that across the United States, during the month of August, dozens of churches were vandalized with ‘hate’ graffiti from both the ‘left wing’ and ‘right wing’, proving that ‘christians’ are not united in their so called faith.  Even a Catholic news source admitted that The Church They Don’t Like May Be Their Own.

Francis A. Schaffer Institute of Church Leadership Development: U.S. Census Bureau reports Christian Death Spiral as 4-thousand churches shutdown every year, versus 1-thousand new church openings! 

Alabama: In Mobile, the family of a five years old boy say he was killed by a daycare employee of Community Church Ministries.  The church pastor and his wife defended their employee saying she “has cancer”, the family of the boy has filed a lawsuit.

Arizona: A new lawsuit filed against The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) claiming that mormons sexually abused Native American children of the Navajo and Crow tribes.  Arizona State University Council of Religious Advisors (which includes the LDS Church) expelled the Hope Church from its campus for violating ASU rules concerning church recruitment including the use of ‘front clubs’.  Hope Church can still use the campus for activities but must now pay to do so.  According to the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, Hope Church reported a $30-thousand USD profit in 2015.

California: In Sacramento more than 3-hundred people jammed into Saint Mark’s United Methodist Church, to protest Sacramento County’s skyrocketing homeless crisis. Pastor Alan Jones said “This is a critical moment…..  …our sisters and brothers….are being dehumanized.”  In Palo Alto, the First Baptist Church is accused of violating city zoning laws by making money renting space to music and dance schools, and physical therapists.  A church leader told local news that all the local churches do it because it’s become the only way they can pay for church operating costs.  In Fresno, god powerless(?) to help ‘his’ Saint Helen’s elementary school pay its $500-thousand USD debt, however, the school remains open because a mysterious human came along and gave the Catholic school $250-thousand which then resulted in other humans donating money to save the school!

Colorado:   Another illegal immigrant is seeking sanctuary in a church, this time involving Park Hill United Methodist Church and Jewish Temple Micah, in Denver.  In 2016, Temple Micah and Park Hill United Methodist Church joined the decades old Sanctuary Movement.  In Newport Beach, local Catholic leaders are moving ahead with their plan to sell-off the Saint James the Great Episcopal Church, despite protests from church members and against orders from national level church leaders!   Local church leaders say they are honoring a contract they signed with a property developer (can you say ‘Deal with the Devil’?)

Connecticut:  Another illegal immigrant is seeking sanctuary in a church, this time at the First and Summerfield United Methodist Church in New Haven.

Florida:  Tampa police arrested a man on charges of sexual battery against two juveniles, the alleged crime took place in the Rehobath Faith Cathedral.  The First Baptist Orlando Church held a funeral for two policemen who were shot and killed, local news media said thousands of people attended.

Georgia:  In Pine Mountain, apparently god was angry because he used a well placed lightning strike to burn the altar inside the Christ the King Catholic Church!  The lightning punched a hole in the roof and hit the altar, a member of the church revealed he was of little faith when instead of crediting god he blamed the pagan Mother Earth, and even implied that Mother Earth was more powerful: “It’s an act of nature, nothing you can do about it.  Lightning has its wrath, and there’s no sanctuary away from the elements.”-Frank Boykin

Idaho:   Lordship Church in Coeur d’Alene made the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of ‘general hate’ groups.   Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations told news media they never heard of the Lordship Church.  The church was apparently set up after the pastor moved to Idaho from California sometime after 2014.  ‘Christian’ founded  Walmart suddenly halted 24 hours operations at its Chubbuck store, blaming it on skyrocketing crime in the ‘christian’ Mormon dominated (U.S. Census Bureau data) rural-metro area, revealing that in just one week shoplifters were caught trying to steal about $20-thousand USD worth of merchandise!

Illinois:  An illegal immigrant is seeking sanctuary in Adalberto United Methodist Church, in Chicago.    In what appears to be a gang shooting, two men (one of them being a witness to a murder) were shot and killed on the steps of Friendship Baptist Church on the West Side of Chicago.  Reverend Reginald Bachus ignorantly told local news media “Just about this time last Sunday, we were reminded that the thief comes to kill and destroy, to steal your faith, but Jesus won’t let that happen.”  I just want to remind y’all what Jesus said: “For you truly know that the day of our Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”-1 Thessalonians 5:2, Aramaic Bible

Kansas:  A woman is accusing the ‘christian’ republican assistant secretary of state of terminating her employment because she doesn’t attend church.  The woman’s grandmother testified that the assistant secretary of state asked her if her granddaughter was still going to church and when she said no he said he wanted her fired.  Officially the woman was fired for fighting with another employee.  While reading the article about this I discovered that Kansas has not only a Secretary of State, and a Assistant Secretary of State, but a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State as well (I can see how a lot of taxpayer money is wasted).

Louisiana: A 51 years old man was caught fleeing the New Beulah Baptist Church after the burglar alarm went off.  The man was bleeding from the head and arm, possibly caused by crashing through a church window.

Massachusetts: Homelessness is such a problem that Church of the Good Shepherd held a golf tournament to raise money: “This really is a widespread problem. We have people from all the way from Boston that come to our church for help.”-Natecia Alfonso

Michigan:  Without warning, the facade of the 126 years old First Congregational Church of Detroit began crashing to the ground, instead of blaming god they blamed “age and lack of maintenance”.   Also in Detroit, Saint Albertus Church is now being used as the new stage for performance artist Satori Circus.   Sparta police say a man killed his grandmother, a longtime member of the Trinity Christian Reformed Church, there was no explanation why he did it.  Homelessness increasing in Charleviox, Christ Episcopal Church-Episcopal Church Women held a fundraiser to raise cash for the Christians Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter founded Habitat for Humanity.   Seventh Day Adventist founded, Donald Trump hating, Kellogg Company (aka Kellogg’s) eliminating 233 jobs at its Battle Creek operations by 2018, claiming it’s part of its plan to increase production!

Minnesota: The taxpayers of New Brighton are the new owners of the vacated Korean United Methodist Church, city leaders are using the $1.9-million USD property for a housing project.

Nebraska: Christian founded American Red Cross shutting down its Omaha Call Center, 138 jobs lost due to consolidation operations!

New Hampshire:  ‘Christian’ founded Sam’s Club suddenly shutdown its membership warehouse store in Manchester, 130 jobs gone!  Local news media reported it was a shock to employees and dues paying customers.

New Jersey:  In Berkeley Township the Saint Barnabas Catholic church was vandalized with ‘satanic’ symbols.

New York: God powerless to stop ‘his’ Saint Joseph’s Hospital Health Center from bribing (buyouts) 3-hundred employees to voluntarily quit in order to allow “…St. Joseph’s Health to adjust its operations to fit the future model of health care…” First Baptist Church of Fairport is warning they can no longer afford to maintain the building due to crashing membership.  Another illegal immigrant is seeking sanctuary in a church, this time at the Holyrood Episcopal Church in Washington Heights, Manhattan-NYC.  In Queens-NYC, a man is wanted for stealing more than $2-thousand USD worth of music equipment from the Canaan Baptist Church, security cameras caught him in the act and he knew they were there because he looked into the lens a couple times, even took a break to smoke a cigarette in front of them.  Despite being caught on camera police have yet to catch him.  In Brooklyn-NYC, Catholic leaders are tearing down their 109 years old Our Lady of Loreto church and replacing it with ‘affordable housing’, keep in mind that affordable housing does not equate to low income housing.  Also in Brooklyn-NYC, a plaque honoring Robert E. Lee was removed from the grounds of the vacant Saint John’s Episcopal Church, but interestingly the plaque honors Lee’s service in the Union Army 20 years before the creation of the Confederate States of America!   Just to let you know, atheist George Orwell warned “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”

North Dakota:  On Spirit Lake tribal reservation the Christ the King Catholic Church was vandalized with chemicals and a chrome cross stolen, it was third time in the past 30 years the church was vandalized: “I’m just hoping it has nothing to do with black masses or with devil worship of any kind.”-Reverend Charles Leute

Ohio: Proof food insecurity and homelessness is on the rise in Akron; Celebration Church yet again fed hundreds of people at its once a month Night of Hope event.  In fact, over the past two years the monthly event has served food, clothing and even medical check ups to more than 5-thousand people!

Oklahoma:  Vian Police arrested a man for breaking into, and vandalizing, the Canterbury Chapel Church, the man refutes the charges.

Oregon:  God powerless to stop ‘his’ non-profit Saint Charles Health System from eliminating an undisclosed number of jobs due to a need to cut costs by $6-million USD.  Administrators told local news media that ObamaCare-ACA reimbursements don’t cover the skyrocketing costs of running hospitals.

Pennsylvania:  So much for Paradise, after almost 20 years the National Christmas Center announced it will cease operations in January 2018, due to “some difficult seasons over the past few years”.  In New Castle, the 91 years old Third Presbyterian Church shutdown due to crashing membership of ‘traditional’ Protestants.

South Carolina:  Video shows what appears to be a North Charleston United Methodist Church Learning Center daycare worker sitting on and hitting children.  The church’s man of faith, Reverend Richard Reams, told local TV news “I couldn’t believe what I was watching.”   A woman was kicked out of the Elevation Church for breastfeeding her newborn.  An official church statement was conflicting, first saying there was no such policy at the church, but then admitting they asked the woman to voluntarily leave.   The woman told local news media “If anything difficult arises, they try to hush it up.” The Elevation Church is considered one of the fastest growing in the U.S.

Tennessee:  Residents living around Glencliff United Methodist Church suing the church and the city for building a village for homeless people.  The residents, who obviously don’t realize how bad the economy is, claim a homeless village violates city zoning rules, however, the local zoning administrator told local news media that federal law ‘generally’ allows churches to avoid zoning rules.

Texas:   The man who crashed a New Braunfels church bus was charged with intoxication manslaughter.  The bus crash happened in March and killed 13 people, the driver pled not guilty.   A 72 years old man arrested and charged with stealing $90-thousand USD from the Metropolitan Community Church, where he worked as an unpaid accountant (not a wise thing to get unpaid volunteers to do your bookkeeping).    Apparently the proposed wall between Mexico and United States will isolate the La Lomita Catholic Chapel between the wall and the Rio Grande: “It would be like having a church in a prison.”-Sister Guadalupe Cortez

Utah:  For the first time in 30 years a mormon leader has been excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to the mormon run news sources in Salt Lake City church officials refused to say why.  By the way, the pro-gun LDS church (with a conspiratorial history of violence) was awarded the Philosopher Saint Shri Dnyaneshwara World Peace Prize in India!

Virginia: In Lexington, there’s is a movement to change the name of R.E. Lee Memorial Church, even though the Robert E. Lee actually attended and led the church in the last years of his life.  Local news media reported the push to change the name caused many old time members to leave.  Two Amelia County churches were burglarized, law enforcement said “Stain drops, believed to be blood, were found at the presumed entry sight…”   Apparently god was angry because he used a lightning strike to burn down ‘his’ 150 years old Rising Star Baptist Church, and it took only one hour to reduce it to ashes.  The fate of the Richmond Christian Center, and its 16 parcels of land, being decided by the court.   The church went bankrupt four years ago and the main creditor says the congregation failed to live up to the court ordered reorganization plan.

Washington DC:  Activists are demanding the Catholic Church officially join the illegal immigrant Sanctuary Movement, they demonstrated in front of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

U.S. Christian Rapture, July 2017: “AND THE CHURCH IS GOING TO GO DOWN….”

“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 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.”

The lies of economic decline: Pocatello Staples shutdown blamed on the internet!

22 JUL 2017 / 18:56 UTC-07 Tango 06 (01 Mordad 1396/28 Shawwal 1438/01 Bing Wu 4715)

“As customers shift online, we are taking aggressive action to right-size our retail footprint.”-official Staples statement

There are two main lies being propagated by unAmerican corporate America (and the government that supports those corporations): Not enough ‘qualified’ U.S. citizens to fill vacant positions, and internet competition.

Staples on Hurley Drive in Pocatello, Idaho, shutting down in August.

Staples on Hurley Drive in Pocatello, Idaho, shutting down in August.

On 20 July 2017, Mitt Romney co-founded wunderkind Staples announced they will shutdown their Pocatello, Idaho, location in August.  They blame “customers” for shopping online.

Remember, Staples sells online as well as in brick-n-mortar stores.

I’ve pointed out before that online sales aren’t that big.  Just this year Karen Edwards, instructor at University of South Carolina’s College of Hospitality Retailing and Sport Management, stated to local news media that internet sales make up only 10%-15% of all U.S. retail sales!  This is really part of a conspiracy by the retail industry to shift to internet only operations, mainly because the cost of operating a brick-n-mortar store (especially rent and utilities) now outweighs sales at those stores.

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!

SHOEBAT.com: A Massive Apostasy Is Taking Place Right Now As American Evangelical Christian Leaders Admit They Are In A Free Fall Collapse

14 Catholic Diocese in the United States are now bankrupt busted due to sex abuse claims!

Baptist Health of Kentucky/Indiana warning that they must layoff 288 people!  ObamaCare is forcing them to ‘realign’ operations. Days after the announcement the Baptist Health CEO suddenly quit!

Arkansas: Christian founded Bentonville based Walmart announced hundreds more job cuts for the 1st quarter of 2017, and began shutting down its experimental Neighborhood Markets grocery stores across the U.S.

California: The Catholic Diocese of Oakland shutdown five San Francisco area schools due to lack of students.  Christian Methodist founded Coca-Cola eliminating 102 jobs in San Diego by the end of July, blaming a 30 years low in soft drink consumption!

Florida: Adventist owned Florida Hospital Medical Group outsourced 67 jobs to a cheapo contractor.

Idaho: In the overwhelmingly christian (Mormon) dominated south eastern part of The Gem State, some christians actually campaigned against Pastor Jacqualine ‘Big Momma’ Thomas’ planned homeless shelter in Pocatallo! After a local Muslim doctor started the financial ball rolling in favor of the homeless shelter (waking up true local Christians who had money to donate), a group of christians went to the city council to point out that the Sublette Street property was not zoned for “transitional housing”.  The Mormon dominated city promptly revoked the temporary operating permit.  Pastor Big Momma commented to local news media that she’s taking this as a sign that god has a better location in mind.

Illinois: Chicago based, christian agnostic Warren Buffet owned, Kraft-Heinz eliminating 2-hundred salaried jobs!   

Indiana: After 127 years Saint Joseph’s College shutting down at the end of the current school year.  Local news media say the community “is shocked”, but supposedly the shutdown is temporary.  The nursing program will continue, but 9-hundred students are now screwed out of their non-nursing degrees. Local news media speculated that it was due to lack of funding, Saint Joseph admin refused to explain the decision.

Maryland: Baltimore based, evangelical founded, World Relief warning of layoffs across the U.S. due to the new President of the United States of America Donald Trump.  You see, christian founded World Relief gets paid, by federal taxpayers, according to how many refugees they take in.

Massachusetts:  Mormon Mitt Romney co-founded Framingham based Staples shutting down at least 70 more stores and selling off its European operations, due to poor sales.

Michigan:  The country’s largest retail christian chain store is now dead.  After 85 years Family Christian Stores shutting down all 240 stores, 3-thousand jobs lost by the end of April! Instead of blaming god, Family Christian Stores admin blamed their fellow christians for crashing sales! Christian founded Habitat for Humanity shutdown two Detroit area ReStores (for lack of sales) and laid off an undisclosed amount of people, blaming it on the fact that more than 40% of the families living in Habitat for Humanity houses can’t pay their supposedly ‘affordable’ low income mortgages! (that’s right, those Habitat for Humanity houses are not free)

Minnesota:  Even god can’t stop The Diocese of New Ulm from going chapter 11 bankrupt, due to sex abuse lawsuits.

Missouri: Saint Peter Catholic School shutting down by the start of the 2017-18 school year.  The school is being merged with other christian schools due to The Rapture, I mean lack of christian students.  Catholic founded Saint Louis University eliminating 120 jobs, blaming increased costs of operations and decreased student enrollments (The Rapture?)!

Montana: Even god can’t stop The Diocese of Great Falls-Billings from going chapter 11 bankrupt, due to sex abuse lawsuits.

New Jersey: The British empire based christian Salvation Army shutdown its Newark Family Thrift store due to crashing sales.  City administrators are worried as the thrift store helped fund local social programs.

New York:  The Archdiocese of New York announced yet more christian school shutdowns, this time six more schools (in NYC and Sullivan County) being consolidated due to The Rapture, I mean what I call Disappearing Students Syndrome.  They also blamed the skyrocketing costs of maintaining properties in The (failed) Empire State: “There was no way to be able to open the school, not just money wise but academics………As Catholic schools close, the tax burden will grow more and more.”-Sister Carol Cimino, superintendent Buffalo Catholic Schools

North Dakota:  CHI Saint Alexius killed 52 jobs in Bismark. Administrators blame ObamaCare for not reimbursing the true costs of healthcare.

Ohio: Quaker christian founded, now Cincinnati based Macy’s-Bloomingdales announced it is shutting down at least 68 stores and killing thousands of jobs.  Analysts say the actual number of employees hit by layoffs could be more than 10-thousand! 

Oklahoma: Saint John Health System told local news media they eliminated jobs, but refused to say how many.

Oregon: Samaritan Health Services imposed a hiring freeze and halted construction projects in order “to prepare and position ourselves to be able to continue our primary mission of healthcare delivery with the least harm to our workforce and community”.  Samaritan Health Services (one of the largest healthcare providers in Oregon) administrators say ObamaCare-Medicaid funding cuts caused them to lose as many as 8-thousand patients in the first two months of 2017! They also said that when you throw-in other healthcare providers “The number statewide is in the tens of thousands”.

Pennsylvania: Christian Mennonite founded Hershey chocolates announced it must eliminate thousands of hourly jobs by the end of 2019, in order “to improve overall operating profit margin through supply chain optimization”.

Tennessee: Catholic Charities laid off 13 people at its refugee center in Nashville, blaming Donald Trump.  Christian founded Kroger (the founder was so religious that he quit his first job because he was expected to work on Sundays, by the way Sunday is not the 7th day of the week) shutdown a grocery store on  Western Avenue, in Knoxville, due to “significant losses for over 5 years now, including over $1 million in the last two years”.

Texas: One of the the largest churches in San Antonio, Community Bible, suddenly laid off at least 31 of its employees.    ObamaCare forced Baylor Saint Luke’s Medical Center to kill more than 2-hundred jobs in The Lone Star State!  ‘Born Again’ christian founded, Plano based JCPenney announced 140 store shutdowns and as many as 6-thousand jobs gone by the middle of the 2nd quarter 2017!

Vermont: Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) shutdown their ten years old Winooski operations due to a lack of people willing to take part in the activities.

Virginia: Fredericksburg Christian School shutdown its Stafford campus.  Administrators admitted that enrollment hasn’t lived up to expectations, so they’re consolidating campuses.  British empire based Salvation Army shutdown their Waynseboro thrift store, due to lack of sales.

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.”

My Immigrant Idaho: Mormon farmers suffer under Trump’s illegals policy!

21 November 2016 (03:24 UTC-07 Tango 01) 01 Azar 1395/20 Safar 1438/22 Ji Hai 4714

“It would have to be a massive, military type effort. And then what?   ….Our dairy industry in Idaho depends on immigrant labor….”-John Thompson, Idaho Farm Bureau Federation, commenting on Donald Trump’s campaign promise to deport illegal immigrants

Right before the False Flag elections on 08 November 2016 (the official Electoral College elections take place on 19 December) it was revealed that Idaho’s businesses are employing an estimated 41-thousand undocumented (ie illegal) migrant workers.  Under Trump’s promised plan to deport illegals it’s estimated that Idaho agricultural industry alone would lose at least 25% of their illegal migrant workers (one estimate says 40% of Idaho’s ag workers are illegal).

I’ve written before that the true reason ‘christian’ lawmakers in Idaho are allowing illegal immigration is that thousands of U.S. citizens have fled The Gem State.  The southern Idaho Twin Falls area has long been ground zero for immigrants.

In June of this year, The Economist revealed that this goes back the end of the U.S. occupation of Vietnam, when Mormon-LDS dominated leaders began a immigrant farm labor program (as a False Flag program run by taxpayer funded College of Southern Idaho) under the guise of helping refugees from Southeast Asia.  Today that program has exploded to the point where federal agencies, and the United Nations, are directly involved.

The Twin Falls College of Southern Idaho Refugee operation has become so big that an Idaho Falls TV station drove three hours to Twin Falls to do a report about it.  KIFI reported “Many people don’t know that Idaho is a major refugee resettlement destination. There are centers in Boise and Twin Falls that welcome hundreds of refugees from all over the world each year.”   But their report wasn’t negative, KIFI’s report made it sound like most Twin Fallsians love the CSI Refugee Center job stealing program.

Right to Work (you over) governor Butch Otter giving praise at the Chobani alter

One of the largest employers in Twin Falls is immigrant founded Chobani Yogurt. Between his New York and Idaho yogurt operations the owner admits to employing at least 3-hundred immigrants.

But don’t think the U.S. citizens who call Twin Falls home support the covert College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center program.  The Refugee Center administrators admit that 3-hundred refugees are brought through Twin Falls every year, with most staying put.  What KIFI failed to report was that U.S. citizens living in Twin Falls, including agronomist Adrian Arp, are pissed and hope Donald Trump keeps his promise to get rid of illegal immigrants: “I think God is giving us another chance. I mean, seriously. You looked at all the odds. The Republican establishment. The crooked media. Despite it all, he was able to pull it off. And now we’ve got to hold his feet to the fire.”

Some pro-immigrant groups (please notice that most pro-immigrant groups support illegal immigration, not legal immigration) downplay the number of immigrants arriving in Idaho.  At this point more than 95-thousand immigrants have arrived, but keep in mind the official population of Idaho is about 1.5-million, that’s a fraction of New York City’s population of just over 8-million!

Red Neck Fail: ‘Christian’ Texas home base for taxpayer funded Islamic extremist schools!

18 November 2016 (12:29 UTC-07 Tango 01) 28 Aban 1395/17 Safar 1438/19 Ji Hai 4714

“Among the issues in the complaint that were left aside by TEA include evidence of discrimination in hiring, pay, and promotion favoring Turkish males, preference for related Turkish vendors in major contracts, discrimination against English Language learners and Students with Disabilities, abuse of the H-1B visa program to bring in underqualified Turkish nationals for teaching and leadership positions, misuse of federal program funding for low socioeconomic students and students with special needs, and systematic overcharging of leases to Harmony schools by Harmony’s private real estate arm to siphon over $18 million of public funds out of the schools.”Gülen Investigation.com

President Bill Clinton praising lobbying efforts (bribing of U.S. politicians) by Muhammed Fethullah Gülen and his followers: 

The ‘christian’ dominated Texas Education Agency (TEA) has concluded yet another in-house investigation into a Turkish immigrant run U.S. taxpayer funded school system.  The latest accusations that the Houston based nationwide school system is really an Islamic Extremist recruitment system comes from NATO member Turkey. The TEA stated the claims were “unfounded” despite ‘mountains’ of publicly available evidence.

Retired U.S. general Michael T. Flynn, and posible advisor to President Trump, accuses Gülen of being a terrorist

This announcement by the TEA came as U.S. Presidential elect Donald Trump asked retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn to be his national security adviser.  Just days ago Flynn wrote “From Turkey’s point of view, Washington is harboring Turkey’s Osama bin Laden…..    ….To add insult to injury, American taxpayers are helping finance Gülen’s 160 charter schools in the United States. These schools have been granted more H1-B visas than Google.”  That ‘Osama bin Laden’ is Muhammed Fethullah Gülen, who has been protected by various U.S. presidents since 1997.  (is Flynn’s opposition to Gülen the real reason Obama fired him?)

2012 CBSNews 60 Minutes report, in which they were told Muhammed Fethullah Gülen does not speak to news media:

In 1997 Muhammed Fethullah Gülen was secretly rescued from Turkey by U.S. President Bill Clinton, after Gülen publicly ordered his minions to overthrow the Turkish government.  Since then he’s created an extensive taxpayer funded charter school system across the U.S.  NATO member Turkey claims that some of the Islamic Extremist insurgents they’ve captured came from the U.S. and attended those schools.

2014 British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) interview with Muhammed Fethullah Gülen: 

It should be noted that Turkish immigrant teachers went public a couple of years ago and said that Gülen was intentionally laying off U.S. citizen teachers and replacing them with Turkish immigrants, because he was making money by forcing the immigrants to kickback 40% of their pay to his organization!

Former Gülen followers reveal the hidden extremist movement: 

A group called Citizens Against Special Interest Lobbying in Public Schools are tracking the Gülen school systems.  They identified hundreds of charter schools operating across the U.S., under different names (including in Mormon dominated Utah, under the name of Beehive which is one of the Masonic symbols of Mormonism), but directly linked to Harmony in Texas, and all under the direction of Muhammed Fethullah Gülen (who lives in Pennsylvania).

Marijuana saves Colorado! Illegal immigrants protected in Idaho? : September 2016 U.S. FEDERAL, STATE & LOCAL SHENANIGANS

Incomplete list (there’s just too much government BS to be able to keep up with all of it) of U.S. Federal/State/Local Government self-destruct announcements for September 2016:

Arkansas:  July sales tax revenues for the cities of Fayetteville,  Rogers, Springdale, Bentonville were up compared to July of 2015.  There was no immediate explaination for the increase in tax revenues.

Arizona:  Counties are begging the state goverment to raise gas taxes, threatening an increase in property taxes as an alternative.  County leaders point out that since 2008 state administrators have used gas tax revenues for things other than road repairs!

California: Not only has Cupertino based Apple avoided paying its fair share of taxes to the not-so Golden State, as well as Taiwan, United States and European Union, but also failed to pay its fair share of taxes owed to Japan! Apple was apparently offshoring profits made in Japan to its tax haven operations in Ireland.  Once caught Apple administrators quickly agreed to pay Japan $118-million USD in back-due taxes!  Last month The Guardian reported that the Obama regime is threatening the European Union (an ally of the U.S.) for demanding U.S. companies like Apple pay their fair share in taxes!

Colorado: As everything else declines state and local tax revenues from marijuana sales continue to climb, but local news reports say desperate cities addicted to tax revenues are now fighting over how much of the state collections they’ll get, and how they can spend the money.  For an example, the city of Edgewater claims they’ll make $1.2-million USD off the sale of marijuana! 

Idaho: The State Police will stop enforcing a booze law that allows them to crash establishments that serve alcohol during ‘live sex acts’.  It’s the result of a lawsuit that proved that the law being used to harass bars with adult performers is too vague, and possibly unconstitutional.    And the State Police are being sued for the 2013 killing of a Montana man.  The man was questioned by police for 40 minutes before they shot him while he was sitting in the passenger’s seat of his car.  Police claim the license plates didn’t match the man’s car and that there was a gun in the glove box. The family of the victim says police dash-cam video shows their son never threatened police with any gun.  Boise State Public Radio revelaed that the federal government refuses to reveal how many illegal immigrants in Idaho get deported.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Immigration and Customs Enforcement admitted that actual deportations have declined since 2012, due to a focus on immigrants convicted in court of crimes other than immigration violations.   Here in Idaho deportations in 2015 dropped by about 4-hundred compared to 2011.  And in Camas County, actor Bruce Willis‘ plans for a private airport crashed and burned after complaints from residents, and the city of Ketchum claimed it violated local laws.  Apparently the land was zoned specifically for agricultural use.

Indiana: Dearborn County facing crashing riverboat gambling tax collections as analysts expect a 15% decline in the next two years.  Local news reports say the county has been relying on casino taxes to support its budget and even with projected declines the casino tax still brings in the most revenue.

Louisiana: More proof of a Failed State; the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Department eliminating 26 jobs, directly blaming crashing sales tax revenues.

Michigan: More proof of a Failed State; Montcalm County eliminating 20 jobs due to crashing tax revenues.  Operating costs have outpace tax revenues by $2-million USD per year since 2012!  Detroit Metropolitan Airport claims skyrocketing revenues from fees charged to airlines, to vendors and for parking.  Thomas Naughton, CEO of the airport, credits “…increased demand and air service opportunities that have resulted in part by keeping our airline rates competitive…” Grand Rapids owned Indian Trails Golf Course threatening the city budget due to its $2.8-million income tax funded renovation.  The problem is that optimistic city leaders expected almost $700-thousand from customer fees to help repay the renovation, which is now 50 days behind schedule.

Mississippi: The city of Jackson eliminating 28 jobs in an attempt to balance their budget.  In Leake County, the troubled taxpayer funded Mormon corporate run Management and Training Corporation’s (MTC) Walnut Grove child prison shutdown after a lawsuit revealed years of sexual abuse, illicit drugs and physical abuse of child prisoners by corporate correctional officers.

Missouri: Kansas City reports a 58% increase in revenues due to its ‘special’ property and sales tax created to fund its new downtown public transportation streetcars.  However, analysts point out that most of the increased revenues took place before the streetcar system went into operation and that the actuall economic impact of the new streetcar system is not yet knowable.

Nebraska: The Omaha Public Power District eliminating an ‘estimated’ 4-hundred jobs at the soon to be shutdown Fort Calhoun nuke plant!

New Mexico: The state Department of Tourism shutting down 50% of its visitor centers claiming its due to lack of use, but its really because the gov’na ordered a 5% reduction in spending.

Oklahoma:  Oklahoma City revealed sales tax revenues continue to crash, and ordered more city government layoffs.  The city needs to cut an additional $4.5-million USD.  Reduced tax collections forced Comanche County to reduce next year’s budget by $204-thousand.

Pennsylvania: Local news reports say the city of Hazelton is short $813-thousand in tax collections, yet the mayor is asking for a 5% increase in spending so he can hire more people.

Tennessee: Evil Nashville based tax-sucking for profit prison company CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) laid off 55 HQ employees due to the federal government ending reliance on corporate run, yet still taxpayer funded, prisons.

Texas: Brown County reports that all cities within the county are suffering crashing sales tax revenues, for the fourth month in a row.  However, some cities leaders swear their sales tax collections will be up for the year.   The city of Plainview unanimously adopted a new budget that increased property values (a backdoor way of increasing property taxes) without hearing any public comment on the budget plan.

Virginia: City of Falls Church claims hard-to-believe tax revenues from a two months old mega-gorcery store/apartment complex combo, and that’s despite a sudden change of corporate ownership.  The city council is crediting the new mega-gorcery store/apartment complex for helping create almost $500-thousand USD more than what was expected in fiscal year tax collections.  The city of Fredericksburg claims an across the board increase in tax revenues.  City leaders credit tourism for most of the tax revenue increases. Fairfax County wants to rape the tourists even more by proposing a 4% meal tax!  Residents will vote on the proposal in November. 

Washington: King County claims their local economy is strong, yet property tax revenues continue to go down.  County leaders warn they must cut $22-million USD from next year’s budget, meaning jobs.    Davis County wants to massively jack up property taxes for 2017.  Leaders want an additional $7.2-million for county operations and $1.25-million for the county library system.   

Washington DC: More proof of a Failed State; the Congress passed yet anther short term spending bill to avoid federal government shutdown.  The new spending bill is good only until December, and will cost taxpayers trillions of U.S. dollars.  Federal tax collector Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced it must kill-off more than 7-thousand jobs between now and 2024, due to crashing hard copy filings of income tax ‘returns’!    The massive layoffs will directly affect the states of California, Kentucky, Missouri, Texas and Utah.

Wisconsin: The ijiot ‘Right to Work’ you over gov-na Scott Walker is now so desperate to save his Failed State economy he’s proposing a sales tax holiday on school supply items.  If the state cheese-weenie-head ‘lawmakers’ approve it it’ll go into effect in the 2017-19 school year.

My Immigrant Idaho : Crimes skyrocket partly due to domestic and foreign migration!

23 June 2016 / 18:26 UTC-07 Tango 01 (04 Tir 1395/18 Ramadan 1437/20 Jia-Wu 4714)

I’ve lived in The Gem State for 20 years and since 2013 there’s been a crime wave like never seen before in Idaho (current official Idaho State Police records go up to 2013-14), yet most of our local news media won’t talk about it.  The crime wave coincides with skyrocketing immigration, from both domestic (from within the U.S.) and foreign (outside the U.S.) sources.

Between 2011 and 2013 immigration into the U.S. was actually declining (UNITED STATES IS NO LONGER THE PREFERED DESTINATION FOR IMMIGRANTS and MIGRANTS SEAKING WORK IN THE U.S. AT RECORD LOWS!).  2013 was the year the massive waves of economic migrants and war refugees began pouring out of North Africa and the Middle East, due to new U.S. and European Union instigated regime change wars.

As far as domestic migration into Idaho, 2011 is the year the U.S. Census Bureau first noticed U.S. citizens fleeing, literally in the hundreds of thousands, from metro areas on the east and west coasts of the country (CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’ TURNED INTO HOTEL CALIFORNIA NIGHTMARE and NEW YORK & OBAMA’S HOMIE TOWN TOP CREATORS OF U.S. REFUGEES!), supposedly their destinations are more rural states like Idaho.

Idaho’s ‘christian’ lawmakers secretly welcome domestic and foreign migrants, mainly for the fact that since 2012 thousands of Idahoans fled The Gem State (IDAHO’S YOUTH GET THE HELL OUTTA DODGE! and THE UNEMPLOYED ARE LEAVING THE GEM STATE!  and 1400 PEOPLE LEAVE THE GEM STATE IN MARCH 2013!)  So many foreign migrants are being allowed into Idaho that the state Department of Education has created a special Migrant Education Program, which is at the insistence of the federal Department of Education and includes taxpayer funded grant money for college (ILLEGALS GET FREE U.S. COLLEGE! 43% U.S. CITIZENS CAN’T PAY STUDENT LOANS! and Community Council of Idaho provides education and federally funded healthcare to migrant workers while ‘yours truly’ taxpaying citizen since 1982 has been repeatedly denied free education and healthcare, even under Idaho’s version of ObamaCare, and not because my income wasn’t low enough, but because I’m a ‘white’ male [I was literally told that by an Idaho Department of Health & Welfare worker in 2001, and by an Arizona Department of Economic Security worker in 1996]!).  Idaho has even established a contractor (Jannus) run Office for Refugees. 

This mirrors the mass exodus of U.S. citizens from the United States (In 2015, ANOTHER RECORD RENOUNCE U.S. CITIZENSHIP! and ANOTHER 1.18 MILLION CITIZENS HAVE LEFT THE U.S. in 2013!), which is the true reason your ‘elected’ lawmakers don’t do anything about illegal immigration.

It starting to look like My Private Idaho heaven is becoming My Immigrant Idaho hell!
