Going dark in the radio station business means signing off the air. It is extremely hard for a station to ever go back on the air once this happens. It has been years since the Chama, New Mexico radio station went dark and there is a movement to bring it back but the red tape is deeper than the ocean. The station I started at KGCX in Sidney, Montana went dark several years ago because of a family feud and never went live again. So very sad. I will say this that the Soccorro, NM radio is one station that went dark and came back after a battle.
The COVID shutdown is costing America so very much, lives, lost businesses, lost dreams and hopes, people losing their jobs, anxiety, suicides etc…. the states rule over the Church for heavens sake! Now Los Alamos, NM is losing its community involved radio station. I see no end of the governor ruling over all. The financial disaster continues in New Mexico and all over America. Maybe we all should move to South Dakota the land of the free and brave!
I talk to a lot of people every week. Many, the majority who are Republicans are upset with the Republican Party of New Mexico. I talked talked to a man in Quemado today who said and I quote, “The Republican party in New Mexico has become so weak.” I also talked to a lady who once lived in New Mexico and she said, “The GOP in New Mexico needs new leadership.” Yesterday I talked to a man from rural Grants who is extremely frustrated with the GOP leadership. It seems that here in New Mexico we are stuck in the mud as the governor has her way. The GOP better wake up! At least show us some gumption!!! Simple news releases and Facebook posts don’t cut the mustard! The people in this state are losing hope. Also your Billboard campaign is useless. If the GOP has any money they should go on the offensive with huge TV and Radio buys. I see no effective campaigning going on. What happened to Ronchetti ? I see no ads for him. He is going to be defeated. Once again the GOP does not put cash behind their candidates.
Financial strain brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has claimed a true community-focused radio station with variety KRSN Los Alamos, NM (1490) set to go dark by the end of the month.
Here in New Mexico we have had over 200 restaurants close during the COVID pandemic, other businesses also have lost their life savings, their dreams, many have lost their jobs, many buildings are empty, and the shutdown continues here in New Mexico. Resurants are not allowed to do in-service dining. The governor has shut the door on the Churches, we are still at just 25% of capacity, that is a crime. During this horrible time, the worst in my lifetime, THE WHOLE CHURCH, THE BODY OF CHRIST IS NOT ALLOWED TO FULLY GATHER! THE STATE IS CONTROLLING THE CHURCH!!!!!!! Never in my worst dreams thought this would happen in my lifetime! I was talking to a Vietnam Vet yesterday, he lives in New Mexico, he said everything that he fought for, our freedoms, are being taken away quickly. He also suffers from disabilities like many of our Vietnam heroes. He is very heart stricken by what is going on in New Mexico and America. NO END TO THIS MADNESS IN SIGHT!!!! He wondered where the Pastors are in this battle?
The governor controls the Church. I love this quote from Andy Mason:
It was said by Mordecai to Queen Esther. Her people were about to be exterminated and she could have sat quietly and comfortably protected by title and privilege. Mordecai challenged her, “What if you were born for a such a time as this? You can speak up and use your privilege to help your people… OR God will cause help to come from another source.” (See the book of Esther in the Bible). What about today? When things get hot and volatile and risky, do you hide behind your privilege and pretend you cannot see or hear… or do you go all in, knowing ‘you were born for such a time as this!’
Small businesses are dying by the thousands — and no one is tracking the carnage
Big companies are going bankrupt at a record pace, but that’s only part of the carnage. By some accounts, small businesses are disappearing by the thousands amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and the drag on the economy from these failures could be huge.

America needs hope! I don’t see hardly anyone in office or running for office that gives me any hope. America needs a good long bath, it has become so dirty.
My Christian friends in South Dakota speak so highly of Governor Noem. I worked at KWAT/KIXX Radio in Watertown, South Dakota in the late 80’s.
Last night I heard from a friend that lives in New Mexico. They just traveled through South Dakota: “Just got back from South Dakota and loved everything about how the
state shows excellence, honor, hospitality and love for country and Christ!”
Would it not be such a blessing to have that said of New Mexico? Or any other state? I do not think to highly of most, if not all the governors in America and the same for the Mayors……..so very, very cowardly. New Mexico is getting where it is almost beyond repair. The problem with New Mexico the corruption goes very, very deep. When I first moved here in 1995, many would introduce themselves and then say “welcome to corrupt New Mexico!” They would joke about it!
New Mexico is a beautiful state, but it kills God’s babies and expects God to bless it. It is a very violent state in many ways. The Feds have had to come and help us regain our lives, to walk and travel the streets in peace. Murders are frequent here. We are number one in Suicides in America. Our last governor was a Republican and she failed, she left a mess, so many out of court settlements that cost the state millions because of monkey business in her administration. The Republican Party never addressed the bad behavior of Governor Martinez, they just sweep it under the old worn carpet. Now the Democrat we have in office is worse, she has divided our state, she has been horrible to the Church, to small businesses, our economy is in shambles.
My home state of Minnesota is worse, a coward for Governor and the Mayor of Minneapolis is the same.
Some of my favorite quotes from the Governor Noem:
“There’s no governor in America that has trusted their people to make the right choices more than I have.”
“If you want freedom, personal responsibility and a government that works for you, rather than dictates to you, South Dakota is the place to get it,” the governor said.
“Not on my watch” Governor Noem stated this after threats were made to blow up Mt. Rushmore.
“More freedom, not more government is the answer”
Governor Noem is loved by the people of South Dakota, she is a uniter not a divider! Sure she has her enemies…If you stand for something, you have enemies. I pray she runs for President next time.
Our family had a wonderful night at the Days of ‘76 Rodeo last night in Deadwood! I’m putting a lot of pictures here because I told folks they could get them here….as you can see it was a beautiful night with fantastic people enjoying America’s favorite sport????????. Thank you to the rodeo committee for all your hard work putting on such a great event for everyone.
Pastor Dewey Note: The leaders of this movement tell it like it is! They are being leaders! Many Church leaders remain silent! We are in Chaos! I pray for more leaders in America like South Dakota Governor Kristie Noem, a uniter not a divider! I pray she runs for President next time!
As America Spirals into Chaos, Faith Leaders Summon Christians to ‘The Return’
Pastor Jessip: ‘Our Lord Always Has Remedy for a World in Chaos’
NEW YORK — Faith leaders are calling Americans toward nationwide prayer and repentance as the country spirals downward in a crisis characterized by the desecration of the traditional family, disregard for the sanctity of life, and pornography addiction.
America’s crisis long preceded the coronavirus pandemic, according to Pastor Kevin Jessip and New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Cahn, co-chairs of a grassroots church movement known as “The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance
America has compounded her sins for decades, evidenced by an economy that adds $100 million of debt every hour, a culture that witnesses 40% of babies being born to unwed mothers, and 68% of Christian men viewing pornography on a regular basis, Jessip and Cahn write.
Jessip says “The Return” is the American church’s opportunity to humble herself in light of the desperate situation the United States and the world are facing.
“Our Lord always has a remedy for a world in chaos, a remedy he has used for generations to wake up his church, and it is simply this: God raises up chosen men and women,” Jessip said.
“In times such as these, our Lord uses individuals to respond to a world in crisis. He touches his servants in a supernatural way, transforming them and then calling them to a life of total submission to his will.”
Thousands of Christians and several hundred churches and parachurch organizations have booked travel to converge on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on September 26 for a landmark gathering of “The Return” movement.
“The Return” is the American church’s moment to consecrate herself through personal repentance and to position herself to be used as God purifies the bride of Christ, Jessip says.
“When God chooses someone to be set apart for a special, redeeming work, he gives that servant a call — and how the servant responds determines the power and intensity of God’s touch in his life,” Jessip continued. “This is the call to ‘come up,’ and it summons us out of the activities of life and into an unshackled pursuit of God’s presence.”
The call to believers across America and the globe resembles the Lord’s command of Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go, so that they may worship me”’” (Exodus 9:1).
Jessip says now is the time for Christ-followers to answer this call, just as Moses did.
“Moses prized the presence of God in his life, as have many Christians who have experienced this call — this divine urge to commune with the Lord,” Jessip said. “The Lord is asking you to ‘come up,’ to meet him on the mount and let him fill you anew with his presence.”
“The Return” is for all believers who love the Lord from all denominations and backgrounds. Leaders already on board with “The Return” include Jonathan Cahn and Kevin Jessip (co-chairs), Mike Lindell, Michele Bachmann, Pat Boone, Dr. James Dobson, Mark Gonzales, Robert Morris, Marcus Lamb, John Kilpatrick, Pierre Bynum, Gen. William Boykin, Carter Conlon, Bishop Harry Jackson, Alveda King, Anne Graham Lotz, Pat and Gordon Robertson, Kevin and Sam Sorbo, Stephen E. Strang, E. W. Jackson and many more supporters listed at thereturn.org/faith-leaders/.
Co-chairs of “The Return” Jonathan Cahn and Kevin Jessip have recorded a special video about the event, which already has over a million views. Watch here.
“The Return” is set for 40 days before the presidential election, and on the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower, in the days of America’s founding and dedication to God. Surrounding the “The Day of Return” on Sept. 26 at the Washington Mall will be 10 days, known from ancient times as the Days of Awe, to be set as a special time of prayer and repentance from Sept. 18-28.
Coordinated events within “The Return” movement will also take place throughout America’s cities, towns, houses of worship and homes, as well as in multiple countries around the world, as many believe the nation has been given a critical window of opportunity to repent and return to God.
