What economic recovery? 109 Sears & Kmart stores to close, while Obama gives amnesty to 11M illegals

I woke up this morning to some talking-head being interviewed on TV droning on about how the U.S. economy really is on the rebound and that, even though we can’t see it yet, employment figures most surely will go up in a few months — dramatically so.
Blah, blah, blah.
Alas, this happy news had not been received by the thousands of Sears and Kmart employees who soon will lose their jobs.

We know that Sears and Kmart are among the retail giants in the U.S. that are in serious trouble. But the list of Sears and Kmart store liquidations is growing and now extends into 2015 fiscal year.

See “16 major retail chains closing stores across America” and “America’s retailers are in trouble. JCPenney, Sears in death spiral”.

Seeking Alpha is a financial research site. Using local news reports and information from current Sears and Kmart employees, Mitch Nolen of Seeking Alpha has assembled a comprehensive national list of Sears and Kmart stores and facilities that are going to close. The list isn’t confirmed because Sears Holdings will not confirm the truth of the list, but neither is Sears Holdings denying the information.
Altogether, 70 Kmart stores, 39 Sears stores, 35 Sears Auto Centers, two distribution centers, and three repair facilities are slated for closure. At Sears stores that remain open, employees report layoffs of HR managers, loss prevention managers, department managers, and auto center employees.
Below is Seeking Alpha’s exclusive list of Sears, Kmart closures from November through 2015.

*Store closure dates may change due to the pace of liquidation. Entries in bold are new since last month’s report.
Meanwhile, Obama’s new program amnesty — that’s opposed by 62% of Americans, but who cares what the American people think? — to protect an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants from deportation, is effectively an open door policy to invite even more illegal aliens to pour in across our southern border.
As for those 11 million illegals already here, White House spokesman Shawn Turner told The Washington Post many of them will be eligible to receive Social Security, Medicare and a wide array of other federal “benefits.” At the same time, Washington Times brings us the happy news that under Obama’s amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.
To those who voted for this POS in 2008 and again in 2012, I hope you choke over your breakfast.

  1. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this amazing post. The evidence presented reflects the real status of our economy, and how devastatingly awful it remains. I feel so sorry for those individuals losing their employment. How awful.

     
  2. Illegals to receive federal benefits? Well, what do you know….fundamental transformation.

     
  3. There is a moral aspect to the closing of these stores, just as the closings of J.C. Penney stores. Sears and Penney’s embrace the homosexual agenda. Sears, goes beyond the limit, by selling books online about bestiality. Businesses that embrace debauchery that goes against God’s nature and the laws of nature, itself, will not prosper. America will not prosper as a nation, unless this country turns back to God, our creator, and repents of national sins. Our military is another aspect that is weak and crumbling because of the homo agenda. God is not going to bless a nation whose Lord is not God. They just don’t get it! I do feel extremely sorry for those who will be losing their jobs, but the blame is on the moral fabric that is ripped to shreds in America. Just as in 1962 and 63, when God was kicked out of school, children could no longer pray in school. Violent crimes began to rise, teen pregnancy, std’s, drugs, and it was then that America the great started falling. Now, this country is trying to normalize abominations. Sears, Penneys, Cover Girl Cosmetics, and others, will continue to crumble. Leeann

     
  4. I think you’re right,Brenda;the fact that stores are selling this junk isn’t the problem though-the problem is that people are willing to buy it,and as long as there’s a market for it,there will be places to buy it. That,as much as it sucks,is good “business”.

     
  5. A word to the wise: Whatever you need, buy and stock up now: Hyperinflation or other disasters may make purchases impossible anywhere in the future.
