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.

Promise?!

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!

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...

“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: It’s 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 history’s verdict is clear: If suppliers are paid only with worthless scrip or blinking digits, the food will stop.”

STEP ONE: FLASH MOB LOOTING

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.

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.

Official USDA etter embedded in the thread and here’s the original posting of the letter by a local food bank:

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

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.

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.

The temporary EBT shutdown and ensuing chaos followed by the release of this letter certainly raise suspicions of a coordinated attack.

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.

OK, everybody prep for roaming band of “the dependency class” and protect yourselves.

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.

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!
