State Kicks 6,500 Welfare Abusers Off Food Stamps

In the past few years the number of Americans on government assistance has grown tremendously.

Since the Obama administration, it has only become easier to abuse the system.

As frustrating as it is, one state has decided to fight back and is discontinuing 6,500 people from the welfare roles.

Maine simply accomplished this feat by passing legislation that requires all able, single individuals without children to either volunteer for 20 hours a week or take an employment training course before they are allowed to receive welfare.

“We must continue to do all that we can to eliminate generational poverty and get people back to work,” said Maine Gov. Paul LePaige. “We must protect our limited resources for those who are truly in need and who are doing all they can to be self-sufficient.” (H/T Patriot News)

Food Stamp EBT Cards Turned Into Cash Wired to Terror-Infested Yemen

A handful of stolen steaks led police to discover the biggest food stamp fraud in the history of Jefferson County, Alabama, this week as authorities discovered that over a million dollars had been stolen from the welfare program using the electronic benefit cards (EBTs).

The police operation dubbed “Operation T-Bone” led to the arrests of 17 people, many of whom were Middle Easterners. They were charged with fraud and misuse of the EBT cards. Some of the profits from the illegal enterprise were sent to Yemen.

At the heart of the operation are Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards, a government-issued debit card that replaced food stamps. There are more than 900,000 people who get government assistance through the EBT card in Alabama each year, and they are allowed to use the cards for food, non-alcoholic beverages, and other basic needs, mostly through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

The investigation began in February when Gardendale police arrested a man for shoplifting steaks and some other items at Walmart in that city. When they interviewed the suspect, he said he was boosting the items to give to two convenience stores, and he named the stores, authorities said.

As noted, most arrested were Middle Easterners…

Those arrested in today’s raids are: Jowher Almnasoob, Abdulrahman Alqublani, Ismail Hassan Elnaham, Saleh Yahya Rowaid, Ramzi Jowher Ali Almansoob, Mujahed Jowher Ali Almansoob, Bashir Abosaleh Mohamed, Fouad Zamzami, Muneer Zindani, Sufyan Saleh, Mansoor Almansoob, Audrey Morris, Jerry Brown, Keith Lee Lucas, Travis Wayne Holmes, Murad Nooruddin and Mable Olympia Kirksey.

They were arrested on charges including public assistance fraud, fraudulent use of a credit card and theft of property, which are felonies. All of those arrested are U.S. citizens, Falls said.

This is a big bust, but this sort of stuff is going on in every major city.

Hey Whitey! Here Are Eight Ways You Can Tell If You’re A Racist (And Responsible For The Baltimore Riots)

  • Sociologist Tony Brown has it all figured out. He’s going to let you know how to tell if you’re a racist.

    Blaming “white privilege” for the Baltimore riots, Brown lays the responsibility precisely where it isn’t: You white people.

    So how did you – rotten white person – cause the Baltimore riots? Here’s Dr. Brown’s list of “signs you’re a racist,” courtesy his op-ed in the Tennessean:

    Your child’s behavior is racist and it’s your fault (mostly).

  • You never intentionally read children’s books with main characters of color, but you raised Sarah to appreciate diversity.
  • You lived in a residentially segregated neighborhood, and thought that fact sent no implicit messages to Evan.
  • You chose to worship in a church or synagogue where Katey was surrounded by white people, and she understood that way of life to be normal.
  • You choose the best schools for Chase, but never considered the fact that those schools were racially homogenous.
  • You talked to Isabelle about poverty but implied that all poor people are black and it’s their own fault.
  • You let grandma say n***** at Thanksgiving in front of Elizabeth because grandma is old and doesn’t know any better.
  • You told a racially insensitive joke in front of Liam, condoning symbolic violence.

Isn’t it cute how Dr. Brown threw in first names that are stereotypically white? But hey, that’s OK. Nothing like a little good-natured “microaggression” here.

Dr. Brown then has a call to action: He wants “black and brown” people – and what he calls “doubting whites” to video record everything.

 “Record the discourteous way co-workers or service industry workers or police officers treat you. Record your friends talking about the indignities and micro-aggressions you as a person of color, for example, face in all- or mostly-white spaces,” he writes. “If you happen to identify as white, then record Uncle Roy talking at a private family gathering about the good old days when blacks knew their place (what sociologists call backstage racism). Record how pleasant your interactions are with police officers doing routine traffic stops. Record whether and how the conversation changes when people of color enter the room.”

You first, Dr. Brown. If you want “black and brown” people being treated unfairly by white people, turn that camera around and record the culture of victimization that has been perpetuated in the black community by a ubiquitous welfare state.
