United States surrenders warships to Vietnam?

“Vietnam’s future prosperity depends upon a stable and peaceful maritime environment. The United States and the rest of the international community also benefit from regional stability, which is why we are here today, and it is why we are very pleased to be working together with the Vietnam Coast Guard.”-Ted Osius, U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam, 22 MAY 2017

Nemesis to the United States, Vietnam, got a new (to them) cutter warship from the U.S. Coast Guard.  Vietnam also received six ‘new build’ boats from the U.S. Department of State!

The nearly 50 years old former U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau was transferred to the Vietnamese coast guard, under the name CSB-8020, on 25 MAY 2017 in Hawaii.

On 22 MAY 2017, U.S. Ambassador Ted Osius officiated over the presentation of six new 45 feet long Defiant patrol boats (built in Louisiana) to Vietnam in Quang Nam Province.

“This cutter [Morgenthau-CSB-8020] provides a concrete and significant symbol of the U.S.-Vietnam Comprehensive Partnership. The Coast Guard is honored to see this vessel continue to preserve global peace and prosperity as a part of the Vietnam coast guard.”-Rear Admiral Michael J. Haycock, U.S. Coast Guard

Ostensibly the ‘gift’ of U.S. taxpayer funded military boats to Vietnam is to fight smuggling, illicit trafficking, piracy and illegal fishing.  It’s more likely part of the U.S. Pivot to Asia military policy started under the Obama regime.

ObamaCare (ACA) death spiral March 2017: “TREATING AN INCREASING NUMBER OF UNINSURED & UNDERINSURED PATIENTS.”

Obama Legacy: Illegal cyber-police ops skyrocket!

“If we determine this to be true, this is an enormous abuse of power. This will dwarf all other stories.”-Rand Paul, U.S. Senator telling Fox News that the Obama regime was using NSA to spy on politicians

“Since 2011, NSA’s minimization procedures have prohibited use of U.S.-person identifiers to query the results of upstream Internet collections under Section 702. The Oct. 26, 2016 notice informed the court that NSA analysts had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”-U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruling

It’s been revealed that illegal spying on U.S. citizens by their own government skyrocketed under the Obama regime, under orders from Barack Obama!

Circa.com reports that under Obama there was a three fold increase in illegal, 4th Amendment rights violating, searches by the National Security Agency.

The Obama regime admitted to the crime during a closed door meeting with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on 26 October 2016.  One out of 20 U.S. citizens had their data illegally captured under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

“….it does call into question all those defenses that we kept hearing, that we always have a robust oversight structure and we have culture of adherence to privacy standards. And the headline now is they actually haven’t been in compliance for years and the FISA court itself says in its opinion is that the NSA suffers from a culture of a lack of candor.”– Neema Singh Guliani, American Civil Liberties Union

The cost of providing healthcare has risen drastically in recent years.

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.

Illinois: The state prison system notified 124 nurses that their jobs were ending in June!  It’s probably in retaliation for the unionized nurses filing an unfair labor practice lawsuit against the state.

ObamaCare (ACA) death spiral February 2017: “OPERATIONAL CHANGES”

Red Neck Fail: Saudi Arabia takes over Texas oil supply?

02 May 2017 (12:43 UTC-07 Tango 06) 12 Ordibehest 1396/05 Sha ‘ban 1438/07 Yi Si 4715

What was all that bullshit about making the United States 100% independent of foreign oil companies? On 01 MAY 2017 the birthplace of Islamic extremism Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) took control of the largest oil refiner in the U.S.!

Port Arthur is now an Islamic extremist corporate town

But don’t blame Donald Trump, the takeover deal was initiated under the Obama regime!

The flag of extremist KSA hangs next to Ol’ Glory in the Motiva museum in Port Arthur, Texas

KSA’s Aramco (Saudi Arabian Oil Company) now controls the Port Arthur refinery in the Red Neck Republican Christian Conservative state of Texas.  But guess what, prior to yesterday’s takeover the largest U.S. refinery in United States was still foreign owned, split between Aramco and Royal Dutch Shell.

But wait, there’s more!  KSA’s Aramco gets full ownership of 24 distribution terminals and has the exclusive right to sell Shell brand fuel in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and in most of Florida and the eastern half of Texas!

Again, what was all that bullshit about making the United States 100% independent of foreign oil companies?

2012:  U.S. President Richard Nixon and his cohorts United Kingdom (British empire) and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (also connected to the British empire) conspired to create a new money system tied to petroleum oil called the PetroDollar system. 

Obama Legacy: Death of ‘Outdoors’ stores, and don’t blame the internet!

11 April 2017 (15:54 UTC-07 Tango 06) 22 Farvardin 1396/14 Rajab 1438/15 Jia Chen 4715

Independently owned ‘outdoors’ store Element Outfitters shutting down its 2nd brick-n-mortar store in Pocatello, Idaho.  But don’t blame the internet, they have a website. (elementoutfitters.com)

Element Outfitters, Yellowstone Avenue (aka U.S. highway 91) Pocatello, Idaho

Soon to shutdown Element Outfitters on Yellowstone Avenue (aka U.S. Route 91) Pocatello, Idaho

The original Element Outfitters, towards the south end of town, will continue to operate.  The owners say the economic situation is such that they must consolidate operations to become more efficient.

Interestingly a local news report ignorantly (perhaps lazily) blamed “e-commerce”, failing to mention that most brick-n-mortar stores also have websites that sell merchandise.

Michigan based MC Sports went bankrupt in February of this year, and is shutting down all 66 stores.

Last year the largest ‘outdoors’ chain died.  It was called Sports Authority and it too had a website.  In fact, in its bankruptcy it was revealed that not only did its brick-n-mortar sales crash, but so did its e-commerce sales.  Administrators said there was too much competition for both brick-n-mortar ops and internet ops.  By the end of 2016 Dick’s Sporting Goods took over the remaining Sports Authority operations.

In April 2016, Vestis Retail Group killed off Sports Chalet and then sold off its other outdoors ops Eastern Mountain Sports and Bob’s Stores.  They had websites too.

The owner of now dead California based clothier Wet Seal, Versa Capital Management, took over Bob’s  and Eastern Mountain Sports.  Then suddenly in February of this year (shortly after killing off Wet Seal) Versa began quietly killing off Eastern Mountain Sports and Bob’s Stores.  Versa is bankrupt and some reports say it might be sold-off to British empire based retailer Sports Direct International.

In February of this year, VF Outdoor announced it would shutdown its four years old ‘sustainable’ outdoors and  clothing product HQ in Alameda, California, killing 52 jobs by April.  One of the outdoor clothing brands associated with VF Outdoor is The North Face.  VF Outdoor is a division of North Carolina VF Contemporary Brands, which also announced it would kill off nearly 1-hundred manufacturing jobs in Los Angeles and Vernon, California, by April.

Just like with the U.S. apparel industry blaming too much competition (both on and off the internet) for its demise, so too is the related outdoors retail sector. And just like the apparel industry death spiral, the outdoors industry death spiral began under the watch of Barack Obama. 

OBAMA LEGACY: CHINA KICKS AMERICA’S ASS IN JOBS FOR AFRICA!

Dollar General secretly executes Dollar Express & Family Dollar!?! Another blow to Chubbuck?

09 April 2017 (17:23 UTC-07 Tango 06) 20 Farvardin 1396/12 Rajab 1438/13 Jia Chen 4715

In my routine reading of state WARN (Worker Adjustment & Retraining Notification) listings I discovered massive listing for Dollar Express shutdowns.  I’ve also found local news reports revealing that Family Dollar stores are also being shutdown.  This is connected to the takeover of Family Dollar by Dollar Tree in 2015, and the takeover of Dollar Express by Dollar General just days ago.

Is the Chubbuck, Idaho, Family Dollar about to bite the dust?

On 30 MAR 2017, Dollar Express notified Idaho Department of Commerce that its store in Emmett was shutting down.

In 2014 I wrote how Family Dollar was being sold to a company called Dollar Tree.   I also wrote how New York based Yankee One Dollar went out of business, blaming jacked up employee insurance costs due to ObamaCare. And in 2013 I reported how Idaho based Honk’s $1.00 suddenly died and was shutting down. Initially Boise news media claimed that no Honk’s stores were shutting down, until days after BlindBatNews posted the evidence, then the Boise main-streamers finally reported the shutdowns!

To get the takeover of Family Dollar approved, the federal government required Dollar Tree to sell-off more than 3-hundred stores.  Those stores became known as Dollar Express in 2015 under ownership of a vulture capitalist company called Sycamore Partners. At the end of March of this year Sycamore Partners quietly sold them to competitor Dollar General, who immediately began shutting them down.

Dollar General’s sudden takeover and shutdown of Dollar Express (not to be confused with car rental company Dollar EXPRESS) is interesting because in 2016 Dollar General administrators said they were about to embark on a massive expansion program.  The sudden shutdown of Dollar Express will kill 2-thousand-7-hundred jobs! That’s according to news media in the state of North Carolina, where Dollar Express is headquartered.

But wait, at the same time news reports are popping up around the country revealing that Family Dollar stores are shutting down as well.  A Family Dollar in Saint Louis, Missouri, and one in Saranac Lake, New York, are shutting down by the end of June.  It turns out that many of the Family Dollar stores sold-off in 2015, to create Dollar Express, were allowed to continue operating under the Family Dollar name!

What this looks like to me is a complicated game that the top U.S. ‘dollar’ store operators are playing with federal regulators, in an attempt to create a monopoly.  Many analysts say which Family Dollar stores will shutdown depends on if there is another dollar store nearby.   Keep in mind that dollar stores target poor people, yet because poor people don’t have enough money to support the dollar store industry desperate dollar store owners are trying to create a monopoly, it’s proof we’re in a depression not a recovery. Thousands of dollar store employees have lost their jobs since the U.S. dollar store wars began in 2013 (under the rule of Barack Obama)!

RUE21, HI-TECH RETAIL FAIL! ANOTHER BLOW FOR CHUBBUCK?

‘ZOMBIE’ PAYLESS SHOES SUDDENLY SHUTTERS 400 STORES! ANOTHER BLOW TO THE CITY OF CHUBBUCK?

MORE ECONOMIC DECLINE: VANITY DIES IN IDAHO

Rue21, Hi-Tech retail fail! Another blow for Chubbuck?

06 April 2017 / 20:07 UTC-07 Tango 06 (18 Farvardin 1396/10 Rajab 1438/11 Jia Chen 4715)

Rue21 issued a massive 4-hundred store shutdown list, Idaho will lose two stores, click here for the list.  To find out which store is closing click on your state, then click each city listed, the stores that are closing will have “Closing Store” posted above the location name.

Will the relatively new rue21 store in the Pine Ridge Mall be forced to shutdown?

Will the relatively new rue21 store in the Pine Ridge Mall be forced to shutdown?

Unnamed sources inside rue21 told main stream news media that the ‘teen’ clothing retailer is about to go bankrupt, and has hired counselors who specialize in shutting down and/or selling off brick-n-mortar stores.

In Chubbuck, Idaho, the Pine Ridge Mall has a large rue21 store.  The store opened only four years ago. It never seems to have a lot of customers.

Other main stream news media reports say rue21 has massive debts and failed to make loan payments.  Suppliers have even stopped shipments of new clothes for fear of not being paid.

At the beginning of this year rue21 created new executive positions, claiming they would “propel the company forward”.  Last year rue21 was described as being the largest fast growing fashion retailer in the United States, apparently that was a lie.

Don’t blame the internet, or hi-tech, rue21 has a website and uses the latest retail tech platform called Aptos.  The use of hi-tech resulted in rue21 winning the Gold Award for Customer Engagement, just last year!

Last year’s technology upgrades were an attempt to revive the clothing seller, obviously technology failed.

‘ZOMBIE’ PAYLESS SHOES SUDDENLY SHUTTERS 400 STORES! ANOTHER BLOW TO THE CITY OF CHUBBUCK?
