More Obama Fraud?

Reblogged from Nox & Friends … A charming piece of information to make us wonder even more about the depth of the Swamp.

 

SNAP = Fraud

It never fails: Some leftist politician authorizes the distribution of millions of taxpayer dollars in the form of free stuff to “the needy”, then redefines “needy” as anyone who meets bullshit criteria that frequently DISregard income, employability and citizenship status. Magically, the number of “needy” grows exponentially, and millions more hands reach into the pockets of honest American workers. And the “free stuff” program descends into corruption and abuse.

This sequence of events played out at local, state and national levels bigtime during the eight years of the Batears Regime. King Putt encouraged officials in Appalachia USDA offices that dealt with the poor (both folks in actual poverty and those simply suffering from poverty of spirit) to destroy the ethic of self-reliance and corrode the respect for a day’s work for a day’s pay. His directives caused bonuses to be paid to USDA employees who recruited the most new SNAP enrollees. BHO replaced the time-honored work/paycheck equation with free stuff, available without the “stigma” of welfare through SNAP, the renamed food stamp program. Note that Soetero’s socialist approach was not limited to the Blue Ridge; it played out in different forms nationwide. States and localities that had large numbers of illegals also found ways to add ’em all to the SNAP rolls.

SNAP benefits can be grossly abused because the program actually exists for three purposes: Feeding the hungry, of course … but also building the culture of dependency on central government, and enlarging the Democrat voter rolls. By granting SNAP eligibility withOUT citizenship requirements, both the number of dependents and the level of fraud increases.
Judicial Watch presented the following report a few days ago … one more feather in JW’s war bonnet in their battle against leftard corruption.
Nearly 200 Busted in $3.7-Million Food-Stamp Fraud Operation
More than a year after the Obama administration slammed American taxpayers with a record-high tab to provide an unprecedented number of people with food stamps, the fraud continues full-throttle in the bloated welfare program. Authorities in north Florida arrested nearly 200 people for operating a sophisticated ring in which millions of dollars in food stamps were fraudulently exchanged for cash and drugs. Keep in mind that food stamps—renamed by the Obama administration Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to eliminate stigma—are designed to help nourish the nation’s most needy.
For years Judicial Watch has reported extensively on the rampant fraud in the program that cost U.S. taxpayers a bewildering $80.4 billion in one year to provide a record 46 million people with the welfare benefit during the Obama tenure. Even then, a federal audit revealed that many who didn’t qualify for food stamps received them under a special “broad-based” eligibility program that disregards income and asset requirements. The expansion was part of the former president’s mission to eradicate “food insecure households” in the U.S. To accomplish it, the administration spent millions of dollars on ad campaigns to recruit more food-stamp recipients, even doling out hefty cash rewards to local governments that signed up the most people. One state even bragged about a $5 million performance bonus it got from the feds for its “swift processing of applications.”
Not surprisingly, the food stamp program became a hotbed of fraud and corruption. Recipients use social media to illegally sell and buy food stamps online and others use the welfare benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors, according to a federal audit that also says some trade food stamps for reduced amounts of cash. The fraud costs the government hundreds of millions of dollars, the audit discloses. This was back in 2012 when the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the agency that distributes food stamps, told Congress about the serious issues plaguing the program. Things got so out of control that the Obama administration dedicated $7 million to crack down on food-stamp fraud in 2014. Among the anti-fraud initiatives that the money funded were strategies to identify and successfully investigate attempts to buy or sell SNAP benefits online using social media such as Facebook, Twitter or ecommerce websites like Craigslist and eBay.
More than a year after Obama left the USDA program in disarray, the scams continue. In the recently busted Florida operation, more than 22,000 fraudulent transactions totaling $3.7 million were documented by a task force of local and federal authorities. It has been coined Operation Half-Back and a Jacksonville news report says undercover officers personally observed 115 individuals commit 390 fraudulent transactions involving food stamps. In most cases the food-stamp recipient took 50 cents per $1 in benefit. Some of the corrupt vendors were stores but many were mobile businesses that sell food and have USDA approval to accept food stamps as payment. Among the biggest offenders are a produce business that recorded 7,164 fraudulent transactions for $1.1 million, another that had 7,390 transactions totaling $1 million, a seafood store that recorded 3,958 transactions for $1.2 million and a mobile meat vender that had 3,958 fraudulent transactions for $572,282.
The undercover sting started back in 2012, the year the Obama administration shattered food-stamp records. Law enforcement agencies created fictitious businesses, according to the Florida Attorney General’s office, which disclosed last week that more than 115 individuals have been charged with felonies and 61 others with misdemeanors. Though the federal government doles out food stamps, in Florida a state agency called Department of Children and Families administers it to provide nutrition assistance to vulnerable populations such as children, senior citizens and families in economic distress. “Food stamp trafficking steals from Florida’s hardworking taxpayers,” Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a statement. “The SNAP/EBT program is designed to provide services to the most vulnerable among us and for anyone to take advantage of this system is shameful.”
Florida seems to be a hotbed of food-stamp rackets. Less than two years ago the feds busted the largest food-stamp fraud operation in U.S. history in south Florida. Twenty-two defendants in the largely black and Hispanic areas of Miami-Dade County known as Opa-Locka and Hialeah swindled the government out of $13 million by fraudulently trading food stamps for cash. The crooked vendors operated food and produce stands at a local flea market as part of then-First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to eradicate “food deserts,” common in poor, minority communities where fresh, healthy food is tough to find or often unavailable. The feds say the business owners and their employees let food-stamp recipients use their welfare benefit to get cash in exchange for a cut of the money.

Journalist Protection Bill Introduced

 

All propaganda AP14731330_1528870917126881_1961299314352261812_n

 

r-s-helms-01R.S. Helms  … 2-9-2018

 

I just reposted an article to FB and Bob’s Opinion (rshelms.wordpress.com), it concerned me that the liberal congress would try such a maneuver, even for their Mainstream Media.  The anti-Trump Rep. Erick Swalwell, D-Calif. – who says he’s been inspired by President Trump to propose a law making it a federal crime to “intimidate or attack journalists.”

This is my reply to Rep. Erick Swalwell, D-California.

 

First, sir, I would think twice about withdrawing such a bill as a liberal Representative of the State of California, who is now fully engaged in not cooperating with federal law enforcement officers who are trying to enforce federal law concerning illegal immigration and the safety of the citizens of the United States.  So, until your liberal controlled state sees fit to cooperate with the federal government I would simply forget it.

Next, I would make sure that the liberal “Mainstream Media” recapture their journalistic integrity and re-establish their ethics of journalism.  It seems what is good for the goose is good for the gander in this situation.

Over the past couple of decades, the “Mainstream Media” has abandoned all ethics, integrity and moral values in their journalism by claiming they were just joking, giving full reign to liberal comedians to say what they want about anyone they choose, which never includes any liberals.  The newsrooms of the MSM has created the “fake news” while hiding behind the freedom of the press of the first amendment and the right to keep their sources anonymous. cockroach 001

Anonymous indeed, if they truly have an anonymous source for the crap they are printing and airing, they should at least verify the information before they use it.  They lie, and don’t report the whole news or news that would go well for the opposing political party.  For instance, they ran in the article screen grabs of who is reportedly President Trump body slamming a CNN reporter.  And Swalwell used that as an illustration, however, he never brought up a screen grab about the liberal (comic?) Kathy Griffin holding up the severed head of President Trump.

They only cover cops shooting black hoodlum thugs, but never cover black on black shooting or black on black on black crimes as a national news piece.  They downplay any Muslim Terrorist outbreaks, until it is far out of their control to hid or downplay the situation.

In other words, I find it disgusting and very offending the way Journalist lie, mislead, support liberalism, political corruption and lawlessness by committing liberal protected propaganda assaults on the citizenry of the United States, our Constitution, our freedoms, and our values.  It is as if those leading our media standards like the UPI and AP have all been graduates of the Soros Funded American Prospect, Inc., and American Independent Institute (formerly American Independent News Network), who do a great job at mentoring journalist for leftwing or Mainstream Media. Both offer grants up to 350k to liberal investigative journalists.  The American Prospect, Inc., offers on the job training staff positions as content writers for print and social media.

The fine character of his co-sponsors leaves no question as to its validity: The Journalist Protection Act is co-sponsored by the following 12 Democrats: Reps. Steve Cohen (Tenn.), David Cicilline (R.I.), Grace Napolitano (Calif.), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.), Andre Carson (Ind.), Debbie Dingell (Mich.), Darren Soto (Fla.), Ro Khanna (Calif.), Jose Serrano (N.Y.), Bobby Rush (Ill.), Maxine Waters (Calif.) and Gwen Moore (Wis.)

Pelosi sucking a lemon

All of the co-sponsors are in most part brain-dead and it is my opinion that they have received a considerable sum of laundered money in their pockets, otherwise they would simply just continue with using the MSM for their radical leftwing propaganda and displaying their total stupidity and being so out of touch.

The MSM is badly losing the battle for the attention of the American people, people like me who still have a free mind, only visit MSM on local channels and the occasional national news on CBS, ABC and Fox Business, the rest is from trusted (personal trust) news feed, and email newsletters, again from personally trusted friends, blogs and organizations.  Of course, most are conservative and conservative (Biblical Theology) Christian organizations and individuals.  It has taken nearly 14 years of paying attention to eliminate the wolves from the sheep.  There is no perfect way to actually decide who is ideologically and theologically friend or Troll.

Not that I like preaching to the choir but, I do enjoy positive conversation on a variety of subjects.  No, I suffer enough leftwing haters and black racists, homosexual activists, anti-Christian and liberal-liberation theologians and misled sheep.  Liberals who have been drinking too much cool-aide, love to troll and be outraged over anything I write, so now I am responding to the liberal congress who are trying to help save the liberal MSM; I would presuppose that their outrage will be quite nasty, as how dare I to criticize the MSM and their ethic-less hate group of so called journalists.  Journalists, who would sell their souls to Satan for their liberal puppet master’s.

Media-logos

If I were a betting man, which I am not, (Its against my religion), but should I be, odds would favor that some of the individual fortunes of some of these journalists, which seem to be growing like a protected stock Ponzi scheme, it seems they just keep getting more and more the worse they get.  They have no morals, no ethics, no values and their integrity?  In the sewer.

Now that they have been brought to account for their reckless and “Fake” news certain members of congress pocket laundered money for the introduction of a bill that protects them from getting criticized for the farce they are.  It is my studied opinion that they are paying lawmakers to push a bill that would make them above the law and totally unaccountable for what they put out as news to inform the American public.

This is my opinion, my studied opinion.

Jerry Brown and the Burning of California…

Jerry Brown Hangs Head In Absolute Shame As Brutal Fact Emerges About Deadly California Fires

Source: NBC  

This is sad and it gives us no pleasure in reporting it but it must be done. Because the Democrat’s policies are dangerous to America and they need to be stopped before they do more damage.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Tom Homan just confirmed America’s worst fears and announced that one man arrested in connection with setting a fire in Sonoma County is an illegal alien from Mexico.

Who has been sent home at least twice?

Homan went on and you can almost hear the frustration dripping from his words saying that ICE has issued detainer requests for Jesus Fabian Gonzalez five times in the past year.   5 times?

What is the guy a serial criminal or serial arsonist? Or both?

The last detainer was issued on October 16 and was related to his arrest on suspicion of arson.

Sonoma County and the whole state of California are sanctuary areas and this is what you get. Now it should be noted that authorities have not tied every fire that ravaged the area to this man. There were multiple fires, some caused by natural causes.

But the point is why risk it? When one fire could catch and blaze out of control and cost 40 or so lives and do billions in damage?

Are a couple of votes worth it?

No.

According to Breitbart Homan released a public statement that said,

“Once again, a non-cooperative jurisdiction has left their community vulnerable to dangerous individuals and preventable crimes. ICE lodged a detainer against Jesus Gonzalez with Sonoma County jail officials on October 16, following his arrest on felony charges for maliciously setting fire to a property. This is especially troubling in light of the massive wildfires already devastating the region. Over the past year, ICE has lodged detainers against Mr. Gonzalez after four separate arrests by Sonoma County on various felony and misdemeanor charges. ICE was never notified of Mr. Gonzalez’ various releases. Additionally, Mr. Gonzales has been returned to his home country of Mexico on two separate occasions. The residents of Sonoma County, and the state of California, deserve better than policies that expose them to avoidable dangers. Non-cooperation policies – now enshrined in California state law – ensure only one thing: criminals who would otherwise be deported will be released and left free to reoffend as they please.”

Wow. Good job Moonbeam. Share this everywhere so America can know how dangerous dumb liberal policies can be.

Pro-Migrant Starbucks Totally Denies Offering Discounts To Illegal Immigrants After Huge Online Backlash

Starbucks 00

Most critical thinking individuals are already aware that companies like Google and Starbucks are extremely progressive within their politics, in fact former CEO Howard Schultz (who just resigned) is an unabashed political activist who became involved in the gun control debate several years ago, most recently a North Carolina woman was mocked by Starbucks employees for wearing a Donald Trump tee-shirt.

The woman Kayla Hart acknowledging the incident said: “I just walked out because everyone was staring; I just found it really sad that I can’t wear a T-shirt with our president without being made fun of.”

Moreover, because of their overt political bias towards traditional conservatives, it would certainly seem plausible that a promotional ad appearing on several social media websites offering a 40% discount to illegal immigrant customers might, in fact, be true.

Although the ads looked pretty convincing featuring the iconic green logo and all, it was just one big “scam.”

The bogus ad offered customers on “Dreamer Day” August 11th the phony discount stating that “all undocumented Americans will receive any item* on the Starbucks menu 40% off.”          Starbucks01

The ad also instructs the customer to mention the code word “UNAFRAID” when placing the order and you (the customer) might also get a free grande cold beverage. In another ad, the word Frappuccino is misspelled.

However, within a short time of ads appearance on Social Media, John Kelly, Starbucks senior vice president of global communications announced that the promotion is “completely false. One hundred percent fake.”

The problem Starbucks has created with it’s overtly anti-Trump, pro illegal immigration stance is that they have created an environment where a hoax like this is very plausible.

Regardless of the scam or perhaps because of it, the coffee giant recently pledged to hire 10,000 refugees in the 75 countries that Starbucks services, within the next 5-years.

In an obvious dig at the Trump Administration’s 120 days temporary immigration ban, Schultz wrote: “We are living in an unprecedented time, one in which we are witness to the conscience of our country, and the promise of the American Dream, being called into question.”

Schultz continued: “These uncertain times call for different measures and communication tools than we have used in the past.”

Do you think companies like Starbucks lose mainstream individuals when they become too political? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
