The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

EBT absurdity: Welfare recipient attempts to purchase automobile with food stamp card

As America transformed into a society of political correctness, and where taxpayer funded programs and modifications were created to try to lessen the stigma of being on welfare under the auspices of providing ‘dignity’ to the less fortunate, it has done little to stop the underlying fact that if someone can defraud a system and get away with it, they will.  And there is no better example of this than what occurred in Florida on March 20 when a perfectly healthy man tried to use an EBT card to purchase a $60,000 automobile.
In the past, the purpose of food stamps, or SNAP as it is called today, was to provide a helping hand to those either working, or unable to work in the lower income brackets.  This supplemental program originated with recipients receiving a certain amount of specialized ‘currency’ from the Agricultural Department that could only be used for purchasing food at a local grocery store, and in products approved by that same department.  But as politicians became endeared to politically correct activists who demanded that those receiving food stamps be protected from ‘shame and humility’, the result was an electronic benefit system that has now been expanded to include it being used for anything from junk food, fast food, and even strip clubs.

NYC: Where you can't buy a large coke but can spend welfare on strippers

It appears that the financial capital of the world, New York City, is not immune to the ignorance of most of government in understanding where true priorities lie.  While Mayer Bloomberg spends time and taxpayer money going after individuals who want to drink a large coca-cola, he and the rest of the city are turning a blind eye to welfare recipients who are spending even more taxpayer money on booze, strippers, and gay club nights out.

In a new investigation by the New York Post on Jan. 6, numbers of food stamp and EBT card users were found to have spent their free government money not on food and diapers, but on booze, strippers, bars and even x-rated video shops.


Welfare recipients took out cash at bars, liquor stores, X-rated video shops, hookah parlors and even strip clubs — where they presumably spent their taxpayer money on lap dances rather than diapers, a Post investigation found.

 A database of 200 million Electronic Benefit Transfer records from January 2011 to July 2012, obtained by The Post through a Freedom of Information request, showed welfare recipients using their EBT cards to make dozens of cash withdrawals at ATMs inside Hank’s Saloon in Brooklyn; the Blue Door Video porn shop in the East Village; The Anchor, a sleek SoHo lounge; the Patriot Saloon in TriBeCa; and Drinks Galore, a liquor distributor in The Bronx.

The state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA), which oversees the “cash assistance program,” even lists some of these welfare-ready ATMs on its Web site.

As Congress and President Obama continue to fight over saving a few nickels and dimes from a nearly $4 trillion Federal budget, and Mayor Bloomberg decries on national television that the country should pay for Hurricane Sandy cleanup, the bottom line is that when it comes to holding voters, err welfare recipients responsible for their government money, it is much easier to scream class division than it is to enforce fiscal responsibility on those who do not work, and have no inention of doing more than milk the system.

SNAP: June foodstamp applications increase three times more than Americans finding a job

In the 1920's, President Calvin Coolidge uttered the phrase, the business of Americ is business.  Nearly 100 years later, that doctrine has changed for the American people as the new business of America is foodstamps.

In June, foodstamp applications came in three times greater than the number of Americans who found jobs.

June saw a new surge in those Americans living in poverty and thus eligible for foodstamps, with 173,600 new entrants into the system, bringing the total to a new all time high of 46.670 million and once again rising fast. Furthermore, with subsequent emergency events affecting the heartland due to the drought, the administration has made sure even more Americans will be eligible going forward. As a result expect the July and August numbers to promptly surpass 47 million on their way to the psychological resistance level of 50 million. Indicatively, the 173,600 increase in Foodstamps recipients in June was three times greater than Americans finding jobs (64,000, most of which part-time) according to the BLS. - Zerohedge

And unfortunately, the unregulated food stamp and EBT programs continue to lead to waste, fraud, and massive losses to the taxpayers.  Recently, a thrown away receipt by a food stamp recipient shows that the program is being used in many cases to fund luxury items, and not the intended healthy food and meal necessities of those on lower incomes.


The business of America is now welfare in the 21st century, and the trends are not slowing down.  At the current rate, perhaps within the next 20 years, 90% of all Americans will be on the government dole in some capacity, and the nanny state will be complete.

Gibsmedat update: Food stamp user cuts retailer for not selling him alcohol with EBT card

The Daily Economist is starting a new periodical called the Gibsmedat update.  The first update, concerns a food stamp recipient who slashed a retailer in New York City with a knife because the cashier would not sell him alcohol using his EBT card.

Official Gibsmedat Currency
A drunken man reportedly slashed a Brooklyn clerk’s face after being told he couldn’t use food stamps to buy a bottle of beer.

“Sell it to me,” the suspect told Ali. “Don’t get me mad.”

The suspect was described as a black man between the ages of 25 and 30 with short black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing black jeans and a white T-shirt. -

History shows that people do not respect what they don't earn, and as time has passed, food stamp usage has gone from a few needy Americans in poverty, to now over 46 million.  It is no longer a stigma, but the mainstream, and as such, the respect for welfare benefits has moved into the realm of gibsmedat.

Food stamp usage by Americans reach another new high

While the Federal Reserve can print money out of thin air, it almost seems now the Federal Government can print food stamps the same way.  The sad part is, they now have to as the newest report from the USDA SNAP program shows another increase in Americans on the dole for food stamp benefits, with the number soaring over 46 million in March.



Last month, when the USDA released the latest foodstamps numbers for the month of February, there was some hope that following a third month of declines, we may just have seen the peak of US foodstamp usage and going forward we would only see the number decline. Sadly, the latest numbers refutes this: in March a total of 46,405,204 persons were at or below poverty level and thus eligible for foodstamps, a 79K increase in the month. - Zerohedge

No jobs, no home, but an EBT card to buy all the stuff Michelle Obama and Mayor Bloomberg want to eliminate from the American diets.

Government promises: food stamp growth over job growth

The US food stamp program is based on criteria that gives money towards individuals and families that live below certain economic scales.  This includes those who might even have a job(s).

However, the crux is that growth in food stamp recipients is expected to rise through 2014 according to a new CBO projection, and this shows evidence that the government doesn't really believe there will be any new substantial job growth for Americans over the next two years.

The Congressional Budget Office said Thursday that 45 million people in 2011 received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, a 70% increase from 2007. It  said the number of people receiving the benefits, commonly known as food stamps, would continue growing until 2014.
Spending for the program, not including administrative costs, rose to $72 billion in 2011, up from $30 billion four years earlier. The CBO projected that one in seven U.S. residents received food stamps last year.

In a report, the CBO said roughly two-thirds of jump in spending was tied to an increase in the number of people participating in the program, which provides access to food for the poor, elderly, and disabled. It said another 20% “of the growth in spending can be attributed to temporarily higher benefit amounts enacted in the” 2009 stimulus law. - blog.wsj.com

Yet, the SNAP food stamp program is broken, as seen here where Atlanta prison inmates bragged about how much food they accumulated behind bars using a EBT card they lawfully got from government agencies.



And we wonder why the Budget deficit is over $150 billion per month, and showing no signs of slowing.

Americans lining up for foodstamps like there is no tomorrow

Food stamp recipients just crossed 46 million Americans in the latest report from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).  Last month, 120,000 Americans may have found a job, but 423,000 fell below the income limits and became eligible for the EBT.



Makes us all want to pull out our Karaoke machines and sing our EBT anthem.
