Skip to comments.Rumored: EBTs To Stop Working, Obama Blame Republicans
Posted on 03/10/2012 4:39:20 PM PST by backwoods-engineer
Heard: high-level workers inside the USDA's SNAP program are planning a false-flag operation to ensure Obama's re-election.
The plan, as I heard it from my source, is to hack or otherwise tamper with EBT accounts such that on 12:01 AM on the first day of the month (in states that fill accounts then) the welfare recipients will not have any more money on their EBT than they did. I understand that EBT recipients line up at midnight at the stores on the 1st so they can start buying.
Then, when massive numbers of EBT holders are freaking out, the perps will spread the word at the stores through "community organizers" than the Republicans have cut their benefits off, because they hate Obama.
Okay, sometimes my source is a kook, but is there anything to this?
You’re looking at a massive investigation if this were true. Like it or not the law is the law and until it’s changed the system won’t change.
Its not that easy. The food stamp program is administered by the states themselves and it would require all the states colluding with the democrats to do it.
So the anti Obama crowd will get blamed and all these democratic EBT card holders won’t vote GOP now?
Makes perfect sense to me / S
I am not so sure Obummer wouldn’t try something like this. Last month we added $229 billion to the deficit. We are on a track to either have to raise the debt ceiling or not pay our bills before the election. Obama and his minions in the Congress have a track record of balking at making cuts even if it means we get exceedingly close to a default. Look for an Obama engineered default on Thursday, November 1, 2012 with his minions in the press and in the communist community organizating cells to spread the word hard through Tuesday, November 6 which happens to be election day.
Whew! For a moment there I was fearful the EBT recipients would go ‘without’ our tax dollars.
Who knows, but why wouldn’t they assume they’d get away with it? Look at what he’s keeps doing to the country and with absolute impunity. No reason not to feel invincible at this point.
Especially the lottery winners....LOL
The election this year is on Wednesday.
They should just storm the stores and take what is theirs. After all this is Obummers aMeriKa and he said they could and should. Take it forward!
Don’t mess with my Cargo. John Frum no likee.
By November the price is almost certain to quintuple!
That’s only for registered Democrats. Registered Republicans vote on Tuesday.
If word got out that Republicans somehow shut off EBT recipients that might clinch the election for Republicans in hopes they would do it again.
There's always that (increasingly) rare FReeper who actually knows whats going on.
We’re probably better off with the states administering the food stamp programs themselves. Democrat governors do some stupid things but even our liberal republican governor in Michigan gets some things right.
Jenny Granholm gave 30,000 college students food stamps whether they needed them or not. Our GOP congress and Rick Snyder took them away. I’m sure that if it had been up to Obama, they would still be getting them.
>>...Then, when massive numbers of EBT holders are freaking out, the perps will spread the word at the stores through “community organizers” than the Republicans have cut their benefits off, because they hate Obama...<<
Err... wouldn’t the “EBT holders” vote for Obama even without such a grand, well orchestrated conspiracy? I don’t quite understand how this would throw the election to Obama when he has a veritable monopoly on “EBT holder” votes either way.
I feel like I’m missing something obvious...
I notice “Canada Jenny” headed for Berkeley right after her term ended. Apparently she wasn’t all that enamored with the “winter, water, welfare wonderland”.
Read my post again. I know that, and commented on it, and so did my source. Only a few states trigger everybody's EBTs on the 1st of the month.
I didn't put it in the original post, because I thought it *was* obvious.
Obama's handlers (read: Jarret and Axelrod) live by the crisis. Don't you see? Massive EBT riots in the inner cities, and the sheeple are clamoring for the government to "just stop the riots", and when Obama does, he gets re-elected in a landslide.
My source didn't even have to spell that one out for me.
Yeah I don’t think she’s been back since. If we hear of her returning we’ll meet her at the state line with torches and pitchforks.
Really? Like the massive investigation into Fast & Furious? Like the massive investigation into the explosion on the oil rig in the Gulf, that caused Obama to shut down drilling? Like the massive investigation into ACORN?
Not happening. Any investigation will take months or years, and by that time Obumbler is back in the White Hut for 4 more big years.
“Then, when massive numbers of EBT holders are freaking out, the perps will spread the word at the stores through “community organizers” than the Republicans have cut their benefits off, because they hate Obama.”
Like there is a chance in Hell that these people would even CONSIDER for a second voting Republican.
Seems backwards to me.
Rioting Baraqqis in the hood would inspire a lot more votes on our side.
Hopefully you can send StableCow to be her best buddy in Jan 013.
Does not require nationwide coordination. According to Wikipedia, just these states credit on the 1st:
Alaska, Idaho, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Vermont along with Guam and the US Virgin Islands. According to the USDA website, Virginia does it then, too.
That's an angle I hadn't considered. I thought they would do it just to generate a crisis (riots) that Obumbler could "fix", and be the hero.
But, you're right: With all Obama's talk about "If Congress won't act, we will," could he be making secret deals with the international bankers to "accidentally" cut off EBTs, just so the bankers don't downgrade us to dog food status?
It's worth pondering, although I think the riots scenario would be more dangerous in the short term.
I guess. Are you a male? Women have a "security" instinct that we really don't have. They say that's what got Pres Bush his high marks: women voters needed someone to make them "feel safe".
The media is leaking that Obama is trying to get the women's vote. Could scaring the crap out of them with riots everywhere be part of that twisted Alinsky strategy?
I know, it's hard for me to think that way, too, but I think I can fathom it.
I agree. That's what makes me think that the idea is for the EBT'ers to riot, thus scaring all the women voters so bad they will cry out for Obama to save them.
Seems twisted to us, yes, but this strategy is straight out of Alinsky.
All I remember is 68.
Riots all over the place with the epicenter at Chicago.
Dems win 13 states.
Good point. If they can freak out even the Republican downtrodden by nixing their EBT... well, a lot of really bad things happen.
I pray this EBT cutoff thing is just a rumor. But if even PART of it is true... we may be heading to a civil war. Very, very soon.
That is EXACTLY what would happen in a Wal-Mart full of EBT'ers on the 1st of the month when their cards no longer work, and the community organizers hollering that the Republicans did it.
Looting, and then rioting.
Won't be pretty if it happens, and it will scare a lot of people into begging the government to stop it, even if it takes martial law.
Can't you see how that would happen?
A nation of nancy-pants effeminates and needy women whose daddy and husband wrapped in one is big government, clamoring for Big Daddy Obama to stop the riots, even if he has to declare martial law?
Similar things have happened before.
I was at lunch the other day (at a fast-food restaurant) and overheard a couple of ne'er-do-wells* seated nearby discussing their lives and financial prospects (these were specimens who were obviously not members of the group known as the "working poor").
One of them mentioned that the first of the month was approaching and the other jeered and laughed and said "It's Christmas! It's Christmas!"
I imagine this individual and his friend will be part of the population affected.
*This dude was trying to bum money off of people in the parking lot. This particular restaurant seems to be a draw for people like him. Great place for people-watching.
Conservatives behave differently in the face of adversity. I know my friend would, we grew up in a tiny rural town where people do for themselves. If it weren’t for the kids (3 grandkids and 2 daughters under 18) he wouldn’t accept any help at all.
Do we need a CW2 or Preppers ping here? I need smarter people than me to figure this out out.
The prospect of what this could do scares me to death. You know Van Jones and the "community organizers" will whip this up if it comes to pass.
However, the VERY SAME PEOPLE who did the 1968 riots are now running Obama's government. They are grizzled old veterans in Alinsky tactics now. They know their mistakes. And I bet they know they have one more shot to take the country over, before the country swings massively back the other direction.
Trust me, they WILL take it. I know "progressives" just like the ones in Obama's cadre.
Free Nike Dunk Low "Stash" sneakers to the first 500 voters arriving on Wednesday.
W.H.A.T. I.S. E.B.T. ?
These people are already getting paid to vote for Obama.
They don’t need any more drama.
It's an electronic card, much like a credit/debit card utilized these days instead of the old paper 'Food Stamps'. It's called EBT for Electronic Benefits Transfer...
On second thought, don't answer that...
That sounds implausible too, but it apparently did occur, and there doesn't seem to be all that much concern over it in the halls of Congress, on either side of the aisle. So, I don't know. It could very well backfire if so.
