Florida Walmart reopens

In April 2015, Walmart closed five of its stores for alleged plumbing problems. In September, the company announced that the stores would be reopened and a local news outlet is reporting that the Florida store is now indeed open for business.

According to the report, “During the past four months, contractors filed permits for upgrades to the store, including one for a new roof.” What about the plumbing? According to the Hillsborough County government website:

A permit is required by any owner, authorized agent, or contractor who desires to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical, or plumbing system.

Just wondering.

Walmart closing 5 stores for plumbing problems – for 6 months!

Maybe Walmart suddenly closed five of its stores for plumbing problems. Or, maybe not. I don’t trust the Walmart company. Remember when they played Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security announcements on their stores’ annoying television screens? No, I don’t trust them at all. I think their stores will one day be government distribution centers, or worse. Here are excerpts from local news agencies about the five stores:

Texas:

An unexpected Walmart closure in Midland has more than 400 employees out of a job. The Wal-Mart Corporation claims the store must close to repair major plumbing issues they have had for years…

According to Walmart representatives, the store had dealt with more than 100 problems in the last couple of years. Morales says the news was even more surprising to him because the location has never failed an inspection.

Texas:

Walmart is closing the Livingston store for six months starting Monday night for renovations and displacing around 400 workers in the process, according to a company official.

Southern California:

Customers arriving at a Southern California Walmart were shocked and dumbfounded to find its doors closed Tuesday with signs posted on it that read: “Closed indefinitely.” Also in disbelief were the hundreds of workers who depended on the Pico Rivera superstore for jobs…

The store on the 8500 block of Washington Boulevard closed at 2 p.m Monday to address serious plumbing problems, like persistent leaks and clogs, that resulted in over 100 incidents over the years.

A staff member told NBC4 the 500-strong workforce was laid off at the store, which they claimed is projected to be closed for six months to a year. Others claimed the move was retaliation for workers demanding better conditions and pay.

Florida:

The store closed Monday at 6 p.m. because of the ongoing plumbing issues. The employee News Channel 8 talked with said a sewage backup is the likely culprit.

The issues “require extensive repairs,” Walmart spokesman Amanda Hennenberg said in a statement. The store is located at 1208 E. Brandon Blvd.

Oklahoma:

The Tulsa Walmart that closed its doors Monday night was one of five stores across the country temporarily closing due to plumbing issues…Walmart says the Tulsa store has seen over a hundred instances of plumbing issues at the store and that’s why it needs to close for up to 6 months…

The retailer says it will have to go in with jack hammers and heavy equipment to fix the plumbing issue.

From Investment Watch:

What is going on? I just heard that numerous Wal-Mart stores from Texas to Florida are closing immediately for 6 month period due to “plumbing problems.” There was no pre-announcement and the store shelves were fully stocked. They even had to discount frozen goods 50% to get rid of the stock. They have given all employees a 2 month severance pay. Does this have anything to do with Jade Helm? I have heard that Wal-Mart has a contract with DHS to act as a command and logistics center for FEMA in case of a national emergency.

The conspiracy theorist in me wonders if the alleged plumbing problems aren’t cover for underground digging and building, like the Denver airport. Big plumbing projects move lots of dirt. As the Tulsa story states:

The retailer says it will have to go in with jack hammers and heavy equipment to fix the plumbing issue.

2015 April Walmart closing for plumbing issues

Walmart’s in bed with Agenda 21 globalists

In 2010, it had a rather public affair with DHS so it’s not much of a surprise. Nevertheless, according to Canada Free Press:

As it turns out, every item scanned at Wal-Mart, America’s top food reseller with an estimated 25% of market share, supports Agenda 21 through a little known organization called the Global Recording Initiative.

The GRI functions as an over-the-shoulder manager, one that tracks compliance—through a school-style alphabet grading system—by companies who submit the proper paperwork and commit to managing their firms under the dictates of Agenda 21.

UNEP, the executor of Agenda 21, is plain in its expectations and goals for the initiative, saying, “You can’t manage what you can’t measure.”

So, Walmart is providing data to U.N. globalists who use the info to “encourage” cooperation with Agenda 21.

Although data submission is called “voluntary”, a GRI flier states that companies will benefit through the attraction of finances and a reduction of “the costs of compliance with regulations, contracts, and licenses.”

Wal-Mart, for its part, dedicates eight pages of the corporate website to explaining the company’s “global responsibility” values, including an explanation of the “live better” portion of the company’s current ad campaign, “Save money. Live better.” The phrase, according to Wal-Mart’s sustainability page, reflects a strong commitment toward “driving meaningful change in a way that no other company can.”

In other words, Walmart’s in a better position to manipulate producers and consumers. That’s where you stand after you’ve decimated most of your competition. Notice that their noose is also around the necks of suppliers and overseas factories:

But Wal-Mart’s compliance is more than just a shallow public relations tactic. In fact, the economic powerhouse is in full submission to the GRI, promising “progress,” “engagement with external stakeholders,” and “making corrections as needed.” Pointedly, the company has added sustainability standards to what are already considered hard-core demands on suppliers. One mandate, for example, requires that “all direct import suppliers source 95 percent of their production from factories that receive one of our two highest ratings in audits for environmental and social practices.”

Notice the Agenda 21 buzzwords. Walmart’s in lockstep with the globalists. However, as the article states:

Wal-Mart is only one of thousands of companies bringing its customers into compliance with Agenda 21.

According to sourcewatch.org:

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) “has pioneered the development of the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting framework and is committed to its continuous improvement and application worldwide. This framework sets out the principles and indicators that organizations can use to measure and report their economic, environmental, and social performance.”

American businesses (at least that’s what we’re led to believe they are) are reporting their economic, environmental, and social performance to the globalists. Here are some of the foundations paying to collect the information:

“Past and present foundations that have provided support include: Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, UN Foundation, World Bank, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Spencer T. and Ann W. Olin Foundation, United States Environment Protection Agency, V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation, and the Soros Foundation.”

Funny how so many of them are openly in favor of decreasing the world’s population. So compassionate. Guess we don’t have to worry about them “managing” our lives through large corporations.

Walmart-Government Conspiracy?

In a CNN story posted December 6, 2010, Janet Napolitano thanked Walmart for partnering with DHS to encourage employees and customers to spy on their fellow citizens. The article states:

Walmart will join the Department of Homeland Security in a program called “If You See Something, Say Something” which encourages the American public to take an active role in ensuring the safety and security of the nation, DHS said Monday.

Remember seeing Ms. Napolitano on those little TVs that used to be all over Walmart stores?

A few months later:

The Supreme Court today unanimously dismissed a class action gender discrimination lawsuit against retail giant Walmart. The decision concluded that the suit, which claimed to represent hundreds of thousands of employees based on specific allegations of discrimination by three of the plaintiffs, was too broad, reversing the ruling of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

That was on June 20, 2011.

The news this morning:

President Barack Obama will nominate a veteran of the Clinton administration and Walmart’s current philanthropic director to lead his Office of Management and Budget on Monday…Burwell currently leads the Walmart Foundation, the retailer’s charity division, and previously ran the global development wing of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

You can search the Internet to find that both right-wingers and leftists are skeptical of the motives behind the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. With its vast monetary resources, it is very powerful and many people are not happy with various aspects of its agenda.

Nevertheless, I have long believed the government will one day take over Walmart. You’ve probably noticed that whenever a new Walmart store opens, other stores go out of business. Will the government one day bail out Walmart as one of those businesses that’s too big to fail? With so little competition remaining, it wouldn’t take much for Walmart to be the last store standing.

Having the government in charge of food supplies is never a good thing. Just think of the old Soviet Union breadlines and subsequent ration cards.How many of those people expected their government would one day ration goods?

Are we witnessing a Walmart-US and/or world government conspiracy? I don’t know. I’m just making some observations. However, the results of such a union would negatively impact our way of life.
