Bracken: US Department Of Agriculture To Suspend SNAP Program 1 November

Bracken sends via WaPo comments at 0942edt today:

It looks like Obama plans to crash the economy and instigate massive food riots in November. This will be blamed, naturally, on the Evil White Racist Tea Party Republicans. American Pravda, (ABCNNBCBS, the NYT, the WaPo, the LAT) will dutifully serve as Obama’s microphone for this scapegoating.

“States across the country are being told to stop the supplemental nutrition assistance program for the month of November, pending further notice. That’s according to a letter from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Fox 13 obtained a copy from the Crossroads Urban Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Crossroads says if Utah families don’t get food stamps, they’ll turn to the local food pantries, which are already strapped due to the government shutdown. Homeless people Fox 13 talked to, some who use SNAP, say losing food stamps would mean going hungry.” Fox 13, Salt Lake City, October 14.

Last Saturday’s hours-long EBT “glitch” led to mass panic and near riots in 17 states. Was that just a “warning” from the regime to the GOP to extend his infinite debt ceiling pronto, “or else?” If the EBT system is shut down for even three days, every supermarket will be looted, and riots will sweep our cities that will make 1968 look like a picnic. This is not an accident, this is deliberate.

We’ve seen this kind of deliberate provocation before: Reichstag Fire, anyone? I’m beginning to feel like it’s Berlin, 1933, and my name is Goldstein. And the new “Berlin Zeitung” will be the NYT and the Washington Post.

Fox story from last night as ref’d by Matt here:

Utah families on food stamps could be cut off soon

Verbatim below to help thwart the Memory Hole:

States across the country are being told to stop the supplemental nutrition assistance program for the month of November, pending further notice.

That’s according to a letter from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Fox 13 obtained a copy from the Crossroads Urban Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Crossroads says if Utah families don’t get food stamps, they’ll turn to the local food pantries, which are already strapped due to the government shutdown. Homeless people Fox 13 talked to, some who use SNAP, say losing food stamps would mean going hungry.

“This is going to create a huge hardship for the people we serve here in our food pantry,” says Bill Tibbits who is the Associate Director at Crossroads Urban Center.

They posted a letter from the USDA on its Facebook page. It says in part, “in the interest of preserving maximum flexibility, we are directing states to hold their November issuance files and delay transmission to state electronic benefit transfer vendors until further notice.”

“What this means if there’s not a deal, if Congress doesn’t reach a deal to get federal government back up and running, in Utah about 100,000 families won’t get food stamp benefit,” says Tibbits.

In other words, tens of thousands of Utah families may not be able to feed their children come November.

People out on the streets like Richard Phillips says, “It could impact us and it’s going to cause problems because you’re going to come to find out that people are going to steal and do what they have to do to survive.”

“People out here are going to go without food,” says Loralee Smith whose been homeless since August and says the uncertainty is making her uneasy about where her next meal will come from. “I’m on food stamps, I don’t know if I’m going to get them, a lot of people are on food stamps and they don’t know if they’re going to get them.”

Others say if SNAP shuts down, they’ll find a way to feed themselves.

“There’s always food pantries to go to, to get food,” says Mason who is homeless and relies on food stamps. However, Crossroads says there’s no way they could handle the increase if food stamps go away.

“We’ll be affected because if people, if a family doesn’t get food stamp benefits, they’re going to come here,” says Tibbits. “Wee can’t, there’s no way we could deal with it.”

The local pantries are already feeling the pinch because WIC, a federal program which provides baby formula and food to families in need has been affected by the shutdown. With SNAP on the chopping block temporarily, Crossroads fears their shelves will soon be empty.

Spread far and wide please – by any means necessary.

  1. Please point out to your sheep friends that there is no aspect of the “shutdown” that affects the governments
    1. control
    2. power
    3. authority
    They preserve every branch that maintains power over the people. This is the threat that our founding fathers warned us of.

  2. So. The clock has started.

    If we are referring to this as “Reichstag”, then the feral urbanites will be the shock troops. The race war has already begun, but thus far we have only seen minor skirmishes. The battle lines have now been drawn.

    Basically this is resorting to the Mau Mau method. Its one thing to push this against an Imus or a Zimmerman and it scares the ladies and lady like males, but they are using it against international financeers, WTF?

    In practical matters where should the tracers be placed in a combat load of mags?

    • Every third or fourth round, depending on your ammo availability.

    • Mr. Simmons….”In practical matters where should the tracers be placed in a combat load of mags?”

      Load one as the 3rd or 4th round from the bottom. The tracer will let you know it’s time to swap for a fresh magazine.

    • Semper Fi, 0321

      M.G. belts have them placed every fifth round, some european belts have 2 tracer and then 4 ball.
      SOG and LRRP’s in VN placed 2 tracer in bottom of mag to signify last rounds in mag, but by then your bolt locks open anyway.
      Why not just load one mag with tracers, (wrap thin red tape around bottom) and then only use it for signalling/marking purposes?

    • Remember, tracers work both ways.

    • There are several techniques. A good one is for squad and team leaders to keep first mag loaded with all tracers to direct the fire of team members.

      Another technique is to make sure the last 3-5 rounds in each mag is all tracers so you know it’s time to reload before you feel the bolt lock back.

      Just remember, tracers work both ways.

    • Jimmy the Saint

      First two rounds loaded. When you see a tracer, you know to switch mags.

    • Sicklemaster

      My method is in agreement with Semper Fi and Chuck. I clamp 2 mags together with a steel clamp made for that purpose. At night, first mag is loaded full of only tracers with one already in the tube. Second mag is loaded with only the type of rds. you want to be doing your social work with, depending on the environment at hand. With night vision I will designate targets with the call, “Target defined, left (9 o’clock, front, 3 o’clock, whatever)!” My friends will look toward the left and take cover quickly. Two tracers go out, and I move to cover at another location and switch mags to my social work rds. My friends will light up where the tracers landed. One more tracer will go out before the second mag rds. kick in, so I may have to move again depending……….. If I see targets elsewhere, I will switch and light them up as well with the appropriate designating commands to show my “party” what to hit and then go back to social work rds. for myself. If you are carrying an AR system, your first mag needs to be at least 1 cartridge width lower in the clamp than the second (social work rds.) mag and with the ejection port cover open, which should happen before you switch mags anyway. Best way I know of to designate targets for those who have no night optic devices. Tracers are hard to come by, so I use them only when they provide a great help. Shoot, move, communicate, reload, and watch what cover you take at night because you may make yourself very visible to night optics in the dark, and you won’t even know it.

  4. If you live in a city or county with a population over 100,000, leave. LEAVE NOW. If you work more than 20 miles from home, you had better have a backup plan that works.

    You are living on the modern day equivalent of Mount Vesuvius, and that rumbling you hear and the smoke you see is the volcano warning you of the coming eruption. You may not get another warning. I do not think the ideologically blinded fools presently running this country have any idea what they are doing or how quickly such things will spin out of control.

    And once they do, there will be no way to undo what will have been done. THERE WILL BE NO GOING BACK FOR ANYBODY.

    • you are right we cannot go back, but let us learn and move Forward.

      LOL, ROTFLMAO Right over them , I would crush them with my Tank Treads but hey have all the Tanks for NOW.

      See you all either upstairs, Lord willing or down below digging ditches Head first.

  5. Only a few weeks left to get set for this. Gear prepped and loaded. Last minute training opportunities need to be taken advantage of. Its getting restless in here.

  6. Arrest soetoro-obama for high crimes and misdemeanors. Coup d’etat perhaps ?

    Of course I’m fantasizing.

  7. I have learned a lot here and wish all of you the very best.

    Whatever comes out the other side of this experience, the FUSA will never be the same. Once the Government threatens something like this (Taking away SNAP benefits to cause riots), they can never can take it back, it will always be there, lurking.

    Socialists used to threaten with taking Grandma’s SS away to get the votes, now they threaten Whites with unleashing negros against us as a weaponized demographic. It really is the people against Government now.

    And so it begins.

  8. Not a warning, a test.

  9. My question is:

    How many of the whiners voted for soetoro-obama ?

  10. With the advent of Obama, came the unleashing of an Evil akin to the advent of Hitler and the unleashing of the Nazi evils that ended in the destruction of millions of lives and the decimation of Germany. Fanatics with a mission are a most dangerous force and It appears Obama and the Democratic Socialists are taking America towards dissolution and destruction.
    Wake up America! Allow yourselves to see the true villains and the danger they pose to us all.

    • kid, correct me if I am wrong: wasn’t it Bush 43 and the neo-con Repukelicans who gave us the :”Patriot Act”, the DHS, the TSA, and etc.? Of course it was. The NY/DC/Hollywood corporate-collectivists all have the same agenda: global gulag.

  19. It’s too blatant, too transparently provocative. There’s plenty of looting the ruling elite need to complete before pulling the pin on this one. It does work as another in a series of head fakes they can make, all designed to keep you off balance. They’re evil, they’re not stupid.

  20. to be or not to be. let it happen captain.

  21. Read “Alas, Brave New Babylon” to see just how bad this could get. Once an avalanche is triggered….
