Skip to comments.EBT To Shut Down Nationwide Starting November

This is not a hoax.
The link is posted in the thread. Utah story that mentions a USDA letter that was (according to the letter) sent to ALL states.
Any journalist checking this out can just call the USDA to verify the letter is legit.
Oh goodie! No more ten people deep lines at my local Memphis Kroger. Void all the Mercedes, Accura's, Lexus's, and Navigators' freeing up the parking spots I won't have a hard time parking my 20 year old car.
I've gotta see this!
This would be the most clarifying event in modern American history.
Shut ‘er down!
That letter doesn’t say there’s an EBT shutdown in November. That will never happen. 0 will never stop the flow of money from the hard-working productive people to his loyal supporters.
“The temporary EBT shutdown and ensuing chaos followed by the release of this letter certainly raise suspicions of a coordinated attack.”
Not that it matters much, but the letter is dated October 11th, and the initiation of the EBT system update (and resulting “glitch”) occurred the next day.
I have a hard time not believing that this is an intentional set up for riots. If it looks like a duck...
So no place to live and no food to eat.
I hear the distant sound of jungle drums. The natives are restless. :-0
“When the Music Stops: How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence.”
(Me, last year, a snippet from the beginning.)
“But the next time we are visited by widespread, large-scale urban riots, a dangerous new escalation may be triggered by a fresh vulnerability: Its estimated that the average American home has less than two weeks of food on hand. In poor minority areas, it may be much less. What if a cascading economic crisis, even a temporary one, leads to millions of EBT (electronic benefit transfer) cards flashing nothing but ERROR? This could also be the result of deliberate sabotage by hackers, or other technical system failures. Alternatively, the government might pump endless digits into the cards in a hopeless attempt to outpace future hyperinflation. The government can order the supermarkets to honor the cards, and it can even set price controls, but historys verdict is clear: If suppliers are paid only with worthless scrip or blinking digits, the food will stop.”
STEP ONE: FLASH MOB LOOTING
“Shutdown will cause federal funding for Section 8 to dry up Nov. 1, Massachusetts housing official says”
Fall River goes broke....
I guess the kids would have to eat their school breaksfasts and lunches instead of throwing them in the trash.
What is the City of Memphis Judge who drives her red Mercedes going to do for groceries? She buys her groceries every day on her way home from court around 3:30 to 4:00 at our local Kroger. She pays for them with her EBT card.
Ping to you
We remain defenseless at the domicile :(
“That letter doesnt say theres an EBT shutdown in November. That will never happen. 0 will never stop the flow of money from the hard-working productive people to his loyal supporters.”
If he’s trying to incite riots and chaos, he would.
The document looks legit if you compare it to Obama’s birth certificate.
I think not, this is just a dry run. He wants control of the House first.
I guess that depends on what he considers to be the ultimate goal -
bringing down America, or ongoing reparations.
well here it comes....
Unlike right now where those warzones are just temporary demilitarized zones...
I doubt this is going to happen any time soon, but if it does I strongly suggest stocking up on food prior to the event. Pushing a cart full of food in an empty parking lot surrounded by hungry people might get you nominated for a Darwin Award.
Grid Drill in November, Food Stamps withheld, Section 8 Housing withdrawn in MA - November promises to be interesting. Prepare!
Official USDA etter embedded in the thread and heres the original posting of the letter by a local food bank:
Utah families on food stamps could be cut off soon
States across the country are being told to stop the supplemental nutrition assistance program for the month of November, pending further notice.

What is an EBT anyways?
I wouldn’t be too sure about that.
Somewhere in my travels, I’m thinking Uncle Sam’s Flying Circus 30+ years ago, letters were typed, then circulated for proofreading/approvals, etc, which could take several days.
Then, when they were finally ready to be sent the date was stamped on in that manner and away they went.
What is that supposed to mean ?
What is that supposed to mean ?
What is that supposed to mean ?
What is the difference between EBT and SNAP?
You’ve noticed that Food Stamp recipients all drive Lexi, Escalades and Mercedes?
It’s almost a badge of 0bamanation.
I would stay out of the Urban area’s ,all hell is gonna break lose.They will just smash the windows and take the food.
An EBT is the reason your city will burn.
Never mind. It looks like SNAP is “Federal food dollar bills” and EBT is the “debit card version” of the same thing. If no SNAP dollars are allocated, you have no money in your EBT card.
If hes trying to incite riots and chaos, he would.
YES - as long as the blame is put on Republicans
I better stock up on (more) food and ammo. Am planning on a “Bug In.”
There was a time I would have called for a tin foil hat. Not now. What happened in Louisiana looks like a trial run. It was not that the EBT cards did not work but that they had no limit for a time. Get them in the stores then shut it down. It sure looks like the community organizer (a.k.a. communist agitator) now has the levers of government.
>> If this is true, I better go shopping today.
Yeah. At the gun shop.
Crime will go up for sure.
All this is to scare spineless Reps into caving. Obama wants civil way in the streets, gives him his national emergency so he can call Martial law, seize and retain power. Call off elections.
There goes HEB.... and Walmart...
If I’m reading this right it takes effect immediately.
Good to hear, and yeah I saw the humor in your post and just decided to play along too :) While I think this is all a scare tactic, one never knows. Sometimes events take on a life of their own. Perhaps another trip to the grocery store is in order very soon.
I ASSume the journalist from Utah called up to verify before running her story.
But if there are reporters here actually looking for a story, go do your job. Call up the USDA and find out if this is for real.
I’m just a dude posting on a public forum. Don’t believe everything you read on the interwebz!
It’s true, according to this http://fox13now.com/2013/10/14/utah-families-on-food-stamps-could-be-cut-off-soon/
This must be bogus. It’s just too good to be true.
Obama has decided it is time to show Bitter Clingers who is really in charge.
