Teachers in West Virginia are striking because they are outraged concessions they won in the form of pay increases and other personal incentives last year lead to a reduction of the rest of West Virginia's education budget this year (archived). Per the laws on the bookin West Virginia, teacher's strikes are illegal. This situation raises the serious question as to whether cause, effect, and finitude in the West Virginia curriculum?
Amazon, a Jeff Bezos production, announced via the Washington Post, another Jeff Bezos production, that Amazon will not move forwards with developing a second headqueaters in New York City after several grand announcements saying they would (archived). The plan approved by New York governor Cuomo and New York mayor Bill De Blasio would have seen 3 billion USD in tax abatements and other incentives subsidize this tin woman of Jeff's after Jeff ran a national contest soliciting such offers and promises none of these cities would abide the tin woman passing his dick pic around to all her friends that aren't him (archived).
When the plan was announced last year it drew opposition on two fronts:
- The state and municipal legislative bodies were outraged that Bill De Blasio's New York could possibily need to pay a business to move there. New York is big! New York was important! Why do they have to now bribe businesses to choose New York over Kansas City?
- The people in the neighborhoods grew indignant that money and jobs would follow this development into their neighborhood. Their poor neighborhood would be doomed to GENTRIFY! It would become like all those other neighborhoods they can't afford.
Another Bezos Bezzle Bungle bites the dust.
In an unsealed indictment issued by the US District Court in Washington reveals 39 year old Air Force counter intelligence officer Monica Witt defected to Iran taking substantial "US National Security" secrets with her (archived, archived). The long time between the 2013 defection and the 2019 unsealing of the indictment suggests the USG is very reluctant to let the news get out that they are indeed suffering defections despite substantial propaganda trying to sell the US Slave empire as the place to defect to.
Chase Bank sent a letter to Enrique Tarrio stating they would be closing Tarrio's personal bank accounts and severing their relationship on April first (archived). Tarrio happens to be the chairman of the Proud Boys men's fraternal organization. The organization is frequently described by mainstream Pantsuit sources including the "Southern Poverty Law Center" as "White Nationalist" inspite of evidence of embracing men from a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds as evidenced by their chairman Enrique Tarrio being identifiably Latin American through his name and appearance. Chase earlier denied payment processor services to the Proud Boys organization.
The fraternal organization appears to be surviving abandonment by their founder though ultimately their survival will depend on their ability to embrace the outlaw status being forced upon them by the female state.
A proposal working its way towards approval in New Jersey would mandate contractors working on government projects use "work verification" software that captures screenshots, logs keystrokes, and gives "real time access" to a new class of government hires verifying contractor billable hours (archived). The proposal comes only 12 years too late to prevent dicking around with technology at the workplace now that anyone in the Americas with a somewhat regular income can acquire their own ipNohe or other fondle slab. The ipNohE or fondle slab allows layabouts1 to lolcat on both their own screen and their employer's time.
The USG has announced it is sanctioning Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA. Under the sanctions the US is still buying and allowing the purchase of oil produced by PDVSA while further allowing PDVSA to continue operating in the US under its Citgo brand (archived). Per their announcement the criminal organization referring to itself as the United States Government is touting their theft of 7 billion USD and projecting a further 11 billion USD to be captured over the next year. Further the USG is promising to keep the funds in "restricted accounts" payable to their chosen interim president or another interim government of the USG's choosing. This theft dwarfs the current paper fiat value of gold the Bank of England has denied the Venezuelan government.
From the involvement of John Bolton to the brazen nature of this theft cloaked as sanctions, the situation suggests the USG may be pivoting back to imagineering an Iraq style regime change endgame in the Bush/Rice tradition over an Obama type sustained color spring. For his part, Maduro spent his weekend visiting the troops as he oversaw and participated in drills and exercises.
This week ended with Trump signing a deal which gives his opposition 3 weeks of USG funding in exchange for their promise to engage his border security proposals. Should they fail, Trump will be free to shut it down again while declaring yet another concurring national emergency to get the barrier building started. The nature of the next shutdown may lead to the Office of Management and Budget transitioning the impending furloughs to pink slips this next round.
At the same time John Bolton and other neocons Trump has allowed into his circle are getting the 2003 Iraq "regime change" team back together again.
Meanwhile French autocrat Macron is calling for regime change against Venezuela's Maduro, a leader who enjoys a far higher approval rating than Macron.
The "Modern Language Association" reports that foreign language offerings at universities in the US fell by 5.3 percent between 2013 and 2016 while enrollment in foreign language classes fell by nearly 10 percent over the same period (archived). The French and Spanish languages saw the largest cuts with offerings declining more than 10 percent while growth occured only in American Sign Language, "Biblical Hebrew", and the Korean.
Why would the "multicultural" environment promoted by these same universities need more than one language?
