Two websites that Kill Poverty.

With just two websites I’m going to change your life and possibly the life of New Mexico. Digital literacy is the quickest way to lift a state out of poverty because it brings immense value to the populace and the opportunities it brings can be done from a computer at home. People that know how to code are extremely valuable and can earn a very high income.However , the current status quo system wants a degree in computer science , but we have that covered , here are the two sites used in combination will change your world ,

Freecodecamp.org

Uofpeople.edu (Free,pretty much ,degree)

These two sites give you everything you need to become a programmer and kill poverty.

Crime Rampant in Albuquerque, City needs Tougher Laws.

How would you feel if a trailer was taken off your truck in broad daylight?or your moving across country and all your possessions are simply broken into and driven into the sunset.These things happen everyday in Albuquerque, people who work hard for their cars and tools are constantly becoming victims of theft.

New Mexico is a beautiful and wild state, but it’s not a place for lax theft laws , in order for us to help lift the state out of poverty we have to prevent craftsman from having their property taken.

Some say that private prisons and the justice system profits off of crime which may very well be so but we must change our strategy in a way to where the community will profit from deterrence more than private or government profiting from crime occurrence.

There are many solutions , one is to hire more officers or to increase social programs , all which are good , however , an all encompassing solution would be extremely tougher property crime laws to deter theft.

What is your solution to Albuquerque’s crime problem?

Cherish Your Loved Ones

Be kind to all people and spend time with your loved ones and cherish them with all your heart ,no one can tell what the day will bring , the true treasures of life are not of the world and cannot be replaced ,wisdom is greater than gold and understanding greater than rubies how much more is the time with your loved ones or walking with god?

Our father had nothing to his name , but he drew a fish in the sand ,no great worldly possessions , but he said “ today you will be with me In paradise “ , how was the time spent with him ?we cherished him with thorns , but when he died , light defeated darkness ,life defeated death , good over evil and peace over war , the temple was rent in two , the dead walked the earth , and the good news spread throughout the earth that all men are saved , we cherished him with thorns.

How great did our father love us that he gave his only son that we may have eternal life in heaven ,

His spirit lives on in each and everyone one of us and I pray that in his name and spirit we cherish our loved ones every minute of our lives.

A.R.T Accidents regular occurrence

A failure from the get go the A.R.T program has been plagued with destroying businesses , electric busses that don’t work , and because of poor planning we now live with regular accidents up and down central because the busses are dangerously close to the burque drivers. Whether it was a money grab scam or something else we need to fix this A.R.T , a solution would be to place the busses on one side of the street and open up central medians to cross traffic again, but r even better get rid of the busses all together and put a train that goes under the intersections and stretches to Rio Rancho! Now that will bring added revenue , make it safer and connect Rio Rancho better, hey let’s go Albuquerque, let’s go train status !

Governor Signs Abortion Bill, Republican Senators Respond


Governor Signs Abortion Bill, Republican Senators Respond

SANTA FE – Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today signed legislation to repeal New Mexico’s abortion law. Senate Bill 10, sponsored by Democratic Senator Linda Lopez (District 11-Bernalillo) and others, repealed an entire section of law that among other things protected medical professionals from being forced to participate in abortions and required that abortions be performed by licensed physicians.

Senate Republicans responded to the Governor’s action with the following statements:

“Though the Governor and pro-abortion activists will claim this as a victory for women, the only victor in this bill is the multi-million dollar abortion industry,” said Senator Crystal Diamond (District 35-Dona Ana, Hidalgo, Luna, and Sierra). “With the stroke of her pen, the Governor has weakened standards of care for women, stripped conscience protections for medical professionals, and given the abortion industry unchecked power to operate under the radar in our state. New Mexico women and children deserve better.”

“This is a sad day for New Mexico,” added Senator Gregg Schmedes (District 19-Bernalillo, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Torrance). “Pro-abortion activists have not been shy about their disregard for unborn children’s lives. Their actions during this Legislative Session, however, exposed their deeper motivations – forcing doctors and nurses to perform abortions

New Mexico Loses Hero

Luna County, NM – On February 4, 2021, a New Mexico State Police Officer stationed in Deming, NM was assisting Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). The officer initiated a traffic stop on a white Chevrolet pickup truck on Interstate 10 eastbound, near mile marker 101 east of Deming, New Mexico.

During the traffic stop, the driver identified as Omar Felix Cueva (39) fired at least one shot at New Mexico State Police Officer Darian Jarrott. Officer Jarrott was struck and killed by gunfire. An HSI agent arrived on scene and notified New Mexico State Police dispatch that an officer was down. A broadcast was put out to state and local law enforcement agencies. A New Mexico State Police officer located Cueva traveling east on Interstate 10 near mile marker 116. Cueva pulled over at the exit and fired at New Mexico State Police officers. The officers returned fire. A pursuit was initiated as Cueva continued to evade officers, traveling east on Interstate 10. 

During the pursuit, other New Mexico State Police officers successfully utilized tire deflation devices near the Picacho exit on Interstate 10 and near milepost 135 by Las Cruces, NM. Cueva continued to flee east on Interstate 10. At that time officers from the Las Cruces Police Department (LCPD), the Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Office (DASO), a U.S. Border Patrol agent (USBP) assisted New Mexico State Police with the pursuit. A LCPD Officer utilized a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver near milepost 140. As the pickup came to a stop, Cueva exited the vehicle armed with a firearm and shot multiple rounds towards the officers and deputies. Officers from LCPD, NMSP, DASO, and USBP returned fire towards Cueva, who was struck at least once.

Officers rendered aid to Cueva until emergency medical personnel arrived on scene. Cueva sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene by the Office of Medical Investigator.  

One Las Cruces Police officer was struck by gunfire. The officer was airlifted to a trauma hospital in Texas where he was treated and released for injuries believed to be non-life threatening.  

This investigation is active and being led by the New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau The identities of the deputies, officers, and Border Patrol agent involved will not be released until all interviews are completed. The New Mexico State Police officers have been placed on standard leave. Please reach out to DASO, LCPD, and Border Patrol for administrative inquiries regarding their deputies and officers. 

Officer Darian Jarrott began his career as a Transportation Inspector with NMDPS. He was certified as a law enforcement officer in December of 2014 and worked with the former Motor Transportation Division of NMDPS. In July of 2015, he was sworn in as a New Mexico State Police officer where he bravely served until today. Officer Jarrott leaves behind 3 small children and was expecting his fourth child this year. Out of respect for Officer Jarrott, please refrain from contacting his family as they mourn the loss of our fallen hero.

Agents learned that at approximately 9:30 p.m., the McKinley County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) received a call of a female walking eastbound on Interstate 40, near milepost 15 west of Gallup, NM.  

A short time later, a New Mexico State Police Officer who was travelling east on Interstate 40 near mile marker 15 observed a large object, a shoe, and what appeared to be debris from a vehicle in the left lane of Interstate 40 and the median.  At that time, a MCSO deputy arrived on scene. As the deputy and officer got closer to the object, they identified the object as a car seat with a deceased infant in it. The officer and deputy also located a deceased female in the median.  

The female, who was later identified as Jessica Ann Copey (24) of Tohlakai, NM and the infant were both pronounced deceased on scene by the Office of Medical Investigator.

During the processing of the scene agents learned Copey was carrying an infant in a car seat and walking in the left lane of Interstate 40, when the two were struck by a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) traveling east. The driver of CMV did not stop and left the scene. An attempt to locate was broadcast to all state and local law enforcement agencies.

On January 20, 2021, a MCSO deputy located a CMV with heavy front-end damage parked at the Flying J’s truck stop off Interstate 40, exit 39 in Jamestown, NM. State Police agents identified the driver of the CMV as Jagjeet Singh (24) of Indiana was taken into custody and arrested without incident.  Singh was transported and booked into the McKinley County Adult Detention Center in Gallup, NM. 

Upon a search of the suspect’s CMV, NMSP Crime Scene agents discovered 34.8 grams of heroin and 5.6 grams of methamphetamine.  Agents also discovered drug paraphernalia.  Singh was charged with two felony counts of Leaving the Scene of an Accident resulting in Great Bodily Injury or Death, one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance (heroin), one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance (methamphetamine) and one count of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash. For the privacy of the family, the identity of the child will not be released by State Police. This crash remains under investigation by the New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau.
