    Mainstream Reports: DHS Battens Down the Hatches: “This Could Be All Hell Breaks Loose Day”

    DHS Prepares for Food Stamp Riots

    A few weeks ago we saw what happens when the Electronic Benefit Transfer system is threatened in any way. When access to food stamps went offline for just a few hours, the masses began to panic in what were essentially isolated hot spots where law & order totally broke down.

    This Friday, because of guidelines set forth in the American and Recovery Investment Act, the 48 million Americans receiving nutritional food assistance from the government are going to see cuts to their monthly distributions.

    According to the USDA, the average monthly food benefit for an American family is about $272. Come November 1st, that will be reduced by $36 – or about 13%.

    Now, that may not seem like a big number, until you consider that the people depending on these distributions are already struggling to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads.

    The government is, in essence, reducing their food availability by 13% overnight.

    Most people aren’t even paying attention, but one organization certainly is, because they know exactly what can happen when you start taking food out of peoples’ mouths.

    (Video follows excerpts)

    November 1st could be a very, very iffy day.

    This could be ‘all hell breaks loose’ day.

    The Department of Homeland Security is spending $80 million on a wrath of armed guards to protect the IRS and other government buildings in New York, not from terrorist threats mind you, but from American citizens because on November 1st the food stamp program is set to start decreasing the amount that is allocated to food stamp recipients… and they’re worried that violence will ensue.

    I guess they’re preparing for the worst…

    If we do not radically change our economy and revamp so that those nearly 50 million people have an opportunity to be liberated from food stamps to get $75, versus $70, versus $65. What these people need is economic opportunity and a good job so they can put food on their own table.

    You know, the slaves had food stamps too. It was called scraps from mazza’s table… we have a crisis within our country right now when you have 50 million people, nearly the entire West Coast, on food stamps.

    That’s the real outrage. 

    While we don’t anticipate any serious riots or violence following the food stamp cut backs, this shows in unambiguous detail what the government and the Department of Homeland Security have been planning for.

    For years they have been simulating the collapse of the U.S. financial system and its after-effects. And their simulations have concluded that any breakdown which leaves people without money, food, or access to government support will lead to widespread violence, looting and riots on the streets of America. The control grid has been put into place to handle what they know is coming.

    Why else would they spend $80 million beefing up security to deal with the blow-back from this relatively minor food stamp cut?

    Because they know what can happen – and they know what WILL happen!

    They’ve spent billions of dollars stockpiling food, guns, ammunition, and militarizing our domestic police forces to deal specifically with riots and mass demonstrations.

    We can pretend that FEMA refugee internment camps don’t exist, but any sensible police state would have designed, built and staffed these facilities well in advance as well.

    The United States government, as well as governments around the world, are fully expecting that the game will soon come to an end and confidence in the entire global economic, financial, monetary and political systems will be lost.

    And when that happens you can be assured that all of those supplies they’ve stockpiled will be used to support their policing efforts, not for the benefit of the people.

    This means you and yours will literally be on your own and left to fend for yourselves.

    It’s time to make and finalize preparations, because these are not the activities of a government expecting peace and stability.

    They are expecting madness and pandemonium, so you’d better have your plans in place, including your food, water, gold, and other supplies that will help you survive when others will be left to deal with the horrific consequences.

    This won’t be a short-term event, but rather, a sustained long-term decline that could potentially affect us for decades – thus we need to be thinking sustainability, and not just prepping for a single isolated emergency.

    You best get ready. The government’s giving us a head’s up on what will soon come to pass.

      When’s the last time you saw someone (besides yourself, if applicable) have a half dozen bags of dried beans, peas, lentils, etc. in their shopping cart? The “poor” need to change their food buying habits.

        EBT accepted. We got to looking around and it is accepted everywhere, convince stores, liqueur stores. This program has run amuck amuck amuck!!!

          • Be informed says:

            I know people get tired of hearing this, but November 1 is in the middle of the window in which the moon is dark enough for Israel to attack Iran. Tomorrow to Nov.8.

            I saw that Pissed of Granny seems to think that I am taking sides with Israel in regards to them attacking Iran. HARDLY. Just like forecasting earthquakes I am ONLY trying to forecast an event in which all of our butts are on the line. Earthquakes are far easier to forecast than try to figure out what a country and their leaders are going to do. I am going by the fact that Israel attacks their enemies with major strikes ALWAYS within this 10 day window of a New Moon. Just like earthquakes I am trying to use the past to forecast the future. It doesn’t matter to me the event nor whom is at fault, ONLY that all of us are prepared for it.

            To me a foreign country is just that, if I don;t live there and have no plans to move there then I really don’t think much of what a country thinks. I ONLY care about how this affects ALL of us. I take no favorites with Israel or the other countries that hate them. I try to figure out what they will do by the current events. Unfortunately human beings have a spastic type of patterns that are much more difficult to predict that geophysical and what the Sun is going to do.

            The DHS could be preparing for that geophysical event, such as a mega earthquake or something much worse like a super volcano, maybe something from space that few know about. Then of course this could be nothing but another dry run to test how the response will be from the masses and to see how well the thuds operate. Then their favorite, the old false flag. Yes, false flag to further erode the 2nd Amendment. Hell, to go after the whole Bill Of Rights. The real enemy of the government is the first and second as they both protect the whole stability of every other freedom.

            This is what I feel, as I could be wrong but I don’t think so. Come November 1 nothing will happen. If they are planning a false flag it will come out the blue when few people are expecting it. If it is war in the Middle East. then Nov.3 would be ideal for an Iranian strike. The other thing I could think of that would occur on Nov.1 would be a Friday start of some banking holiday so the weekend could prevent a total stock market crash until Monday of the next week.

              While the article contains many facts, the premise is ridiculous. You guys are going to have braveheart shitting his pants, as this is the set-off he is predicting. Do you really think after all they have done, that $36 a month is going to set-off riots? This is the slooow boil, like the frog. I have no doubt that SHTF is just around any corner now… but I really do not think it will come down to $36 ebt credit.

                  Outlaw and Paranoid, I just got home a few minutes ago and read your comments. I’ll agree with BI that little if anything will happen on Nov. 1. It would take a total cutoff of EBT for riots to happen. Nobody would be happy over a reduction, but I don’t think riots will start over that. BI, I agree a false-flag is coming but when is anyone’s guess. If I had to bet, I would say Grid Ex on the 13th and 14th. Let’s all hope that won’t be a real-life “American Blackout”. Let DHS come ahead and try something stupid. braveheart

                  It isn’t always a matter of skills. As an example, I am told everyone in your military E-6 and below has to be on food stamps to feed their families, even if they have 10+ years of service behind them.

                  The problem is no one wants to tighten their belts. I am not responsible for people who have kids that they can’t and could never afford. If you have them then YOU raise them. I think there should be more people in your household finding a job. These welfare handouts are totally abused. People are getting benefits that equal more then minimum wage. I don’t know about the rest of you but I can’t afford to take care of other families.

                  I did 10 yrs in the Corps. My final rank was e-6. In zone for e-7 when I left.

                  It’s kinda funny that I was able to buy a house, have a new car. support my family and live 100% off the dole.

                  Did they really think all the free rides would continue once he got elected ? He got your vote and doesn’t need you any more. Most don’t need the hand out. The few that do are going to go hungary or get a job. The one’s that can not work are in deep doo doo. He has already cut some. A little elderly lady getting ready for heart surgery this week was at the Walmart store I was in a week ago. She wanted to buy cottage cheese,the cheapest brand. She would pick it up and put it back. We started a conversation and she said her food stamps had been cut to $35.00 a month. She ended up not buying the cottage cheese. I saw that from a distance.She was clearly in need of help. If I had the money I would have used my cart and hers and had her buy all the food she wanted and paid for it. Unfortunately I couldn’t do it. This lady won’t riot I am sure but will surely be hungry. While the really needy do without the elite and Obama’s family will eat their kobe beef, lobster and bar q ques using air force one to fly to their favorite restaurant to get their meals.

                it might when you consider how many very elderly depend upon that $40 total for the whole month…it is not just the families with kids…there are a whole lotta old folks barely scraping by, that get 8-40 bucks of food stamps cause they live alone and maybe they only get 80 bucks in social security…I have seen this with my own eyes in Memphis tenn. in senior housing.

                • The amounts listed in the article are misleading. Granny will not get a $36 cut. That amount is based upon a family of four. Granny will get something like a $11 cut on average. The benefit will drop from $200 to $189. That is more than enough for me to buy food.

                  I see this every month when a close family member who worked all her life gets 37$ a month. It is not funny, and there should be some rioting just because this is allowed to happen. All these young, able bodied, lazy, people that wouldnt work if a job smacked them in the face, can draw welfare, and collect food stamps for having kids, when someone who has contributed to society all her life (90yrs) cant get enough to help feed herself. This country should be very ashamed.

                Logic takes your side of the argument. Agreed!
                Most would say, $36 bucks come on? Who would go ape-shit over such a small amount?
                Yet, have not the instigators sometimes used seemingly low key off hand episodes to create a crisis atmosphere, then used the controlled MSM to inflate the fear-porn side of the issue?

                View it this way, does a 36 dollar reduction show up on the majority sheeple’s radar?
                Not a chance!

                Now, throw in a decent amount of agent-provocateur types at the right locations, at the right time, amongst the right genome group & entitlement mindset crowd & what do you have?
                Division of facts, opinions, induced chaos, conflicting eye witness accounts & opportunity to exploit such, no?
                Then they run with it.

                Hail Caesar, divide & conquer is the end-game.

                Were aware they’ve purchased billions of rounds of one-shot-stop ammo, tens of thousands of select-fire weapons, 2700+ armored mil-spec MRAP vehicles, approx 1500+ carbine caliber survivable mobile checkpoint stations, world class sniper rifles w/ ditto optics and we hear of their intention to utilize both recce & armed drones for domestic use!

                Sir, w/ all due respect, I’d say someone very high in the chain of command is itching for an excuse to employ all that hardware & manpower in a domestic example of SHOCK & AWE…and soon!
                So much so, that they’re willing to create the crisis!
                Because its important to keep the serfs in their place, no?

                NEVER UNDERESTIMATE YOUR ENEMY!

                Just out of curiosity, how many here REALLY LOOKED hard at the JBT photo at the top of this article & analyzed it thru the prism of….

                Hmmmmm, dudes are armored up pretty good!
                If all I had was a rifle chambered in .22lr what would be my aim point?

                hint…remember, it usually takes two, to carry a wounded & incapacitated comrade to safety, in the rear.
                Thus, one shot removes three.

                Aim small, miss small.

                  It’s not just $36 reduction to their food stamps – all this money printing has inflated everything and continues to reduce the amount of food that $200+ monthly allotment will buy. The government is crashing in slow motion. The riots are slowly undeway too, a flash mob here, a random attack by ‘teens’ there.

                  may i remind all of you about the tactic taken by the socialist and followers of their leader Alinsky? Ever since woodrow wilson started his progressive agenda they knew it would take time to get the sheeple under their control.That being the case the object was to take an inch and then take a yard always adding to the power for them and taking it from you. This reduction is in the same vein. they gather and say “lets see what kind of reaction we will get from a medium reduction in the EBT benefits we give and then increase that reduction 1 step at a time” Yes this is indeed the frog in the boiling pot scenario. They will keep pushing until they finally are able to get the uprising they are hoping for when they are fully ready for it to happen.
                  On another note always look to what the elites in HOLLYWOOD produce and release to the public.They always give you advanced warning of what is coming by their shows.That is why i looked at the NATGEO show on sunday and realized that this is nothing but another warning of what is coming. Are you prepared? I know a number of you posting here are but there are many others out there who are not simply because they can’t or won’t believe this is really going to happen.Yes the people in control of our government would do anything even harm its citizens to get what they want,be it a false flag;or outright act if they think they could get away with it. good luck to all

                  Hunter: You and others here seem to be math challenged. The entire DHS has less than 250,000 personnel and this includes the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection/ICE, TSA, and Secret Service, and FEMA. The Coast Guard is on America’s main waterways. The Secret Service is busy guarding dignitaries and chasing counterfeiters. Customs and Border Protection personnel are located at the 300+ ports of entry across the U.S. which are at all international airports, seaports, and land boarders. Depending upon which agency we’re talking about, 10-35% of their staff are unarmed support positions. These guys are all busy so who’s going to slap on this riot gear like in the photos ? Maybe the granny-gropers of the TSA. That’s a joke! Maybe it’ll be pencil pushing voucher squad of FEMA. None of these folks are elite paramilitary types, so who’s still worried about some new form of SS showing up? Not me because the facts don’t support it.

                maybe not the EBT alone- BUT totally unpublicised is how unemployment benefits are being cut back simultaneously- and have been for some time. When the electronic EBT cards went down- so did the unemployment filing services and some have already been with THAT for weeks too. cumulative squeeze will eventually hit a break point.

Probably take something really significant to make something happen like riots (Trayvon Martin) . I think the point is that you dont know what straw will break the camels back. The sinking of the Lusitania, the assassination of arch duke Ferdinand, the sinking of the USS Maine. These all were pretty small events in the grand scheme.

                I do agree with you guys that $36.00 won’t start a riot, but the TPTB could use it as excuse for some type of a false flag. Man I really hate that I can’t trust my Gov.

                For the folks that really need it the cut is going to still hurt. For the Zombies/Leaches. I say good. Short story that is true. A school teacher in my group told me a kid came to school with over $35.00 worth of Sinkers Ice Cream bars for the class. When she asked how she got them she told her MY EBT CARD!!! 17 years old two (2) kids, living with her mother, so she gets the card.

                  Have to admit that about everything is going to extremes. Welfare, Taxes, price of food and gas. I agree that measures to correct the abuse can also hurt those who rely on assistance and use it legally. The big attitude is that I feel they are getting over on me and I can not do anything about it. I also understand that recipients can not eat beans and rice forever. It is the arrogance in which they display.
                  In this chess board of the Haves and the Have Nots, nothing is ever talked about the consequences. Lifestyles of having children to increase benefits. The stress placed upon the community resources.
                  Should we have a financial collapse the ones who will hurt the most are the mothers of said children. They will cry out to the Fathers and very little help will be received due to their own survival. I await the sound of hungry children crying. Of course nobody wants to think about that.

                Outlaw, another point being missed is the rise in the cost of food. EBTs will be less by 13% but the quanity being bought (16oz down to 14.3oz) and the spike in cost, many will be short changed even more. Many will see the loss of maybe even 20-25%, now we’re talking increased frustration of those with EBTs. Will they riot? Don’t know but if the loss of EBT money continues and it is a week or two before Christmas…….?

                @ RICH99. To tell the truth the waiting for the events in the Middle East have become old with me also. I however cannot live with myself by not alerting people each month to that possibility of an attack and giving that window of time. The people here are worth it to know IF and WHEN it happens. The absolute nightmare that will ensue after such an attack could be the literal start of WW3 and there might not be much time for anyone to act. Remember the video on June 21, Russia: “Syria will be armed with weapons never before seen……..” The vidoe was THE LAST DAY. It was sudden and unexpected start of WW3.

                Every time Israel has lauched war it has been in this 10 day window. Fox News has an article “Israel issues warning to Iran over nuclear bomb report”. They have been practice long range bombing runs for the past 3 weeks. Yes RICH I agree this is getting old, but in all fairness would you not want to know beforehand what is happening rather than just turn on your TV and see the breaking news between 4-9 PM your time that the Middle east is erupting in a blaze of hell? At least be a little more mentally prepared to at least try to get out of your area before the missiles start flying from all the nuclear powers within a short time thereafter? Don’t you think that others deserve a little bit of heads up warning IF and WHEN this happens, before one of the ultimate SHFT and then some?

                  I second what you said, not that it needs to be seconded. You are absolutely right. We appreciate your insight and thoughtfulness in sharing your observations on the matter. The thoughtful, prescient, and observing eyes of human-kind have been watching events in that region now for over 3000 years. It doesn’t matter which side you are on, when war breaks out in the middleeast this time, it will involve the whole world in one way or the other. There will be no escaping (perhaps in the Redoubt?) There will be two sides and each one of us will probably have to choose sides. Father will turn against son, and mother will turn against daughter. Lines will be drawn even in this community or preppers. The consequences are not going to be pretty.

                  Ditto to what the gang is saying,
                  I for one find it fascinating your theories on the interconnectedness of the earthquakes,
                  It always made me sort of go Huh? When seizmologists would say two quakes were not connected???
                  How the hell could they not be connected! We live on a big ball every releaae of energy has an equal response somewhere!
                  The submarine thing is curious, would support a repositioning, my guess is that subs would be utilized heavily if there was an attack on Iran, do any of you think for a minute that BO and his newly installed military leaders would give a crap about asking permission from congress? If subs were used there is denyability too, ishrahell might start the bombing but i bet the war mongers would gladly hit them simultaneously then sink back into the water to wait. There is also the issue of waterways, iran has said they would close down the waterways in their proximity, subs have the capability of countering and destroying any craft that moves!
                  Anyway, keep it coming BI

              I agree with your premise in part. This $80 Million is not spent because they really believe people will riot because of food stamps; that is just their excuse. They are planning for some other event, possibly war with Iran. There are so many other possibilities hanging out there that I am not sure which they are preparing for, but think it’s a good time to pay close attention to what is going on and to be ready for anything in the next month or two.

                The Most Logical assumption at this point is to: Consider that not every fed worker in every agency is a bad evil guy. Many are true patriotic folks like You. Not all fed agency are planning evil bad things against their own folks in usa.

                Perhaps logic should dictate at least till we see otherwise, that the main reason the feds have bought more ammos etc is incase the several Million Gangbangers, mainly of the african and mexican races nationwide, within about 50,000 seperate violence Prone Gangs, go ape shit during any event. Even a natural weather type events.

                What will most american citizens who Are Law abiders etc think if such an event leads to all out looting and rioting by most or Every gangbanger nationwide, and the fed govnt and police simply allow it to go on without doing anything to Halt it? That Is their main job afterall. To Protect Your rights. especially from a million or more gangbangers going ape shit in Your areas.

                AS FOR EBT CUTS: A couple single retired folks near here have told me they were being cut from orig ebt amounts of $107 per month(NOT $200 or more as some think) down to for month of Oct, $101 and as of November untill January 2015 new Lower ebt is down to $90 per month.

                Funny almost everybody that complains of old folks who get EBT’s for now only $90 per month, never ever complain of all the massive foriegn aid cash to 150+ nations. And the FEW who do complain of foriegn cash payouts usually just complain if its paid to muslim or enemy nations,(enemys as per fox 24/7 geeking everybody up).

                Yet “Most” of those folks are happy and content to see israel with only aprox 6.5 million jewish folks there, getting way More cash per yr than any other nation, even africa for example where many more millions starve.

                What can Your state do with that $3 Billion Cash per yr israel gets? PLUS God alone besides state dept and pentagon knows how many More Billions cash per year israel gets in arms and weaponery etc/ plus several Trillion since 9/11 which is 99.99999% Certain now was Caused BY israel/mossad/zionists jews. Spent for Phony Wars.

                I know I know. As long as FOX news, Glen Beck, and many pastors keeps spewing how israel is our best friends and allies than its all fine and Kosher right.

                Untill one researches All facts about Khazar jews/israel imposters etc. That takes Focus though. Focus and a true desire for real factual truths.

                It seems many preppers are becomeing more like a Cult of sorts lately. Every Day, every dark moon week, every sneeze or cough and oh no this Must be it! And if its not? Then we will keep searching every nook and cranny for any “Hint” of any posibility that we can spin. twist or mold into a RED ALERT!…As if somehow they want it to occure so they can say “We were correct”!

                I do not know about others here but I for one HOPE we never see a true collapse or meltdown or martial law scenarios. You who think its cool or good, or are under wishfull ideas that you is who gets to “Rebuild” america after you survive etc…If Russia communisim 1918 lasted 70+ yrs…This time around is likly to last that long or never end. Carefull what you wish for folks. You may Get it! But things may Not turn out as you percieve even with 20 yrs of preps stashed away and enough ammo to overtake central america in 3 days flat.

                Seems like barely 10% here speak of community assisting and going it as a group. The other 90% rather hide in a cave or basement and “wait” for the all clear signals. Or emerge now or then to begin shooting all within Range.

                It sounds like they are becomeing a Cult. Hope they do not get like Jim Jones folks did!! Koolaide time for everyone!

              I think you folks who say $36 is too small to set off riots don’t understand how social explosions often go. Look what followed with the self-immolation of just ONE street vendor in Tunisia in December, 2010. Many attribute the entire thrust of the Arab Spring to that one event.

              Social explosions are the human equivalent of sand grains added to a pile of sand. It is not the last INDIVIDUAL grain that is significant, it is the fingers of instability that run throughout the pile that makes it collapse with the last grain. Same with this. If someone marches himself down to the WIC, SNAP or EBT office, throws a rock through the window, gets MACEd or SWATted, you would have plenty of fuel to start a fire based on it.

              No one here–including me–has any idea what it is that will set it off. All I know is every passing day, every new outrage that is reported and every new oppressive tactic that is tried, brings us closer to that explosion.

              When that last grain is added to the pile and the whole thing gives, it may be something so small it is not even noticed at first.

              Don’t be looking up at the sky waiting for the unreported asteroid to hurtle out of the night sky. That’s a good way for some goober to walk up and kick the hell out of your nuts. Just be ready at ALL TIMES because it can happen at any moment now.

              Heres ANOTHER: TV Special you can watch its 1/2 hr long.

              It First aired on Monday,10-28-13 at RT TV News on the “Sophie And Co.” show special. VERY EYE Opening!!

              There is also a website owned By a former israeli IDF soldier, I cannot recall his webiste name now, but RT TV News just yesterday had him on an interview the entire 1/2 hr show. It was the “Sophie and Co.” show at RT tv.

              That former IDF israel soldier explained that his webiste has Over 900 other former IDF soldiers, who like himself, are speaking out to Expose the total lunatic mentlity taught to every israeli jew from birth. IE: That everybody in Palestine is out to “get a jew” and stab a jew in the back etc. Including palestinian kids and even Babies!

              It is basically the same mindset they are all taught to believe, that all non jewish goyim gentiles are evil nazis and out to get those always 100% innocent jews who never ever do any wrongs to others. It causes a permanant state of Paraniod Psyhcotic behaviors and mindset in them.

              That former IDF guy was spot on and was describing the Many times his superiors/leaders of israel keep ordering idf soldiers into palestineian tarritory for NO other reasons, other than to jump out of military vehicles, begin to shoot guns into the air, and create a mass state of fear against totally innocent downtrodden palestinian folks.

              He said some idf are so brainwashed they hope and watch for some kid to sneek close and toss a rock at the soldiers. Then they jump at their big chance to actually shoot and kill a 5-6yr old kid, who is trowing a rock at idf soldiers, because the soldiers last time destroyed the kids home and killed his mom and dad etc.

              He described in Much detail how one time his own Commanding officer on scene spotted a small child observing their army vehicles etc on the street below, from a rooftop 2nd floor the child was at. His commanding officer fired a warning shot to scare the child, when child failed to move off rooftop, his second shot was aimed directly at the childs stomach! The IDF guy says the Only issue of concern for his leader officer that did the shooting was if his superiors back at HQ are going to punish him etc!..But the former idf guy says all the idf troops there assured the officer not to worry as none ever gets punished for shooting and Killing innocent palestinians even small kids.(some of usa’s best pals and allies?!!).

              It is nice to see that at least 900+ former IDF israeli soldiers have awakened from former brainwashings, much like some usa military has recently, and are speaking out and maintaining a website dedicated to outting such false attacks upon innocents be they in palestine or iraq or South Carolina!

              It proves that sooner or later Truth shall always conquer Lies and propagandized falsehoods.

              Everybody who aint as yet jewized up on whats REALLY going down inside Israel, and the Real actual truths of just how terribly so many totally innocent Palestinians, and that Includes Christians, aprox 400,000 christians there if I recall correct,are constantly treated so badly,even being murdered by IDF soldiers for the Fun and Sport of Killing humans who harmed nobody etc.

              Should consider that 1/2 Hr. Spent viewing and listening to that former israeli idf soldier, just may perhaps be far better spent time as compared to wasting 2 full hrs viewing more NatGeo propagandas designed to make preppers appear as Buffons and Imbecills.

              Plus if I recall correctly, RT or that former idf guy show his website address on that interview so you can also go read some of the other 900+ former israeli soldiers speak out to reveal the Truth and Facts that never ever shall be seen on FOX or CNN type msm tv.

              I must say in all honesty, that former IDF soldier was so, so convinceing and truthfull, that perhaps even pastor John Hagee himself would have new revelations at how wrong headed his ministery is by his pro israel pro jew teachings, which of course are all based on the same basic falshoods you’d expect from fox and cnn msm’s.

              One particular interview part that really hits home with concerning truths, is when that former idf soldier began to describe his struggles in trying to get his own parents, who also live in and were raised(I think parents were also born and raised in israel as was the idf soldier guy), to believe their son is telling the parents the true facts and what’s really the israel and idf miliraty agenda, as well as what drives it based on false beliefs that all non jews target jews because, jews are always so innocent of any wrong doings. So far his parents refuse to budge and accept their son knows from personal experience, and is man enough to admit and tell others of it all. Overall one of the absolute Best ever expose’s of reality of inside of israel and palestine you will never likly hear anywheres else, as long as the current zionist jewish culprits owns usa-MSM’s.

              You should be able to eaisily Find this 1/2 hr long interview at RT tv news’ website, listed under “Sophie And Co.” archived stuff. A MUST SEE! Finnally real Inside info Truth and From a former IDF-Isreali Soldier who is speaking out, and has a website of his own with an Additional 900+ Former IDF soldiers also speaking Out on what really is israli govnt/militray agendas, and how IDF soldiers are trained to view gentile palestinian’s, as well as ALL gentiles, as no big deal and Okay to Murder for Sport! Fun! and Country!

              This interview is especially Great info for delusional israel-firsters, and israel/jew defenders/supporters who think its somehow good policy to be that way!

              Real Christians Knows that God won’t ever “Bless” any such unquestionable defence or support of ANY group/race/religion of people. Perhaps this 1/2 hr interview of former IDF soldier will convince them.

Because those Two camps just about covers 99.9999% of all who unquestionably defend and support all issues jewish, or always reject all facts and truths to continue such Mindless defense regardless even if it is a Jew or ex military IDF, 900+ of IDF soldiers! Who supply such factual truth info.

                  Not so much You are a typical fool idiot that always calls every person Jews hate for speaking truths, an antisemite or hater.

                  If you knew one iota of what Jesus and all 12 apostles stated on these jew issues, or even ever compared New Testement christianity to babylonian talmudic judaisim, you would know that one teaches Love, Kindness, Charity for others even those Unlike You.

                  While the Other belief system teaches abject hatered of ALL Non jews aka goyim gentiles of all sorts and races etc. It also teaches that for jewish persons it is a VIRTUE to Steal from, Lie to, and even Kill gentiles and the ONLY times its not a good Virtue is if that thief jew or liar or killer of gentiles gets Caught, so as to make things reflect badly upon jews in general!

                  In other words as long as jews are fairly certain they can get away with Mistreating gentiles by Lies-Thefts-Swindles-Scams-and even to Kill gentile goyims…Then thats all good and a VIRTUE to be Proud of!

                  And foolsih idiots like YOU defend and support it all fully without question and all based on they are of a certain race or religious beliefs!

                  Last I heard Your methods are posterboy definitions of a true Bigot and racist as well as abject idiotic Fool.

              In November, TEPCO will begin the very scary process of removing the spent fuel rods at Fukashima nuclear facility. Ordinarily, they would have robotic instruments to do this and it would be computer guided because it is such an extremely dangerous chore. However, the robotic instruments and computers were crushed/destroyed during the earthquake/tsunami of 2011. So it must be done by hand. Its a very delicate operation–if one fuel rod touches the other, well, just say goodbye to your neighbors and family! (around 1,500 of them have to be removed!)

            Hey DK, nice to hear from you. Being a retailer that accepts EBT, it is my understanding that certain restaurants are allowed to take EBT as payment. The thinking behind this is that “homeless” and “disabled” people receiving EBT bennies should be allowed to get a hot meal. The rules state that the person must prove they are homeless or disabled to get this particular benefit and the particular establishment has been approved by USDA to process the EBT even though they do not meet the “other” EBT acceptance requirements as I do as a retail store. The question for me and I’m sure others is that how do you show you are homeless? You know damn well most of the approved establishments don’t give a rats ass if the person is homeless or not, especially in this economy. A sale is a sale to them. As for my place, I can only sell “cold” items such as deli sandwiches and such. Now here’s a kicker. That person who buys that sandwich cold, pays for it with EBT can then nuke it and have a “hot” sandwich and that is OK. Here is how dumb the rules are. They can buy crushed ice but not block ice, or, they can buy a Starbucks cold ice coffee but not hot coffee we just brewed. Hope this helps with everyones understanding of a screwed up system that needs to go away.

            Arizona does have some restrictions, but what difference does it make? Between those working under the table, those illegally in the country or both, the whole system in AZ is broken. They spend so much on subsidizing illegal aliens, AZ has one of, if not the lowest unemployment caps in the country.

            You want to know how bad it is? I know someone that worked at DES for a while. She quit because of all the corruption she saw and didn’t want to be part of it.

            Among other things, she was told by her supervisor (Mexican-American woman)to give full benefits to people that my friend knew were illegal aliens and to ask any questions. But this same supervisor told her to give an American-born-and-raised woman the absolute minimum benefits possible. When she asked why, the supervisor flat out told her “Well, she’s White, she doesn’t need it as much.” THAT is the reality of how screwed up it is at DES in Arizona. She saw this kind of thing going on every day and that’s why she left.

            Not to mention how liberal administrators and politicians have made certain that case workers have no enforcement power whatsoever! Even when they know for a fact that fraud is going on and they are not allowed to report it! I know one case worker that was visiting a client’s house and during the visit the little girl looked at her and said, “But that’s not my mommy’s name” (illegal with stolen or fake ID) but the case worker had no recourse. Great system, eh?

            Now I’m sure someone is going to label me a racist because when faced with the unpleasant truth, liberals and pro-immigration types automatically go that route. Don’t bother. You’ll only embarrass yourself.

          Just a clarification on this. The EBT card handles multiple programs. To the best of my knowledge Food Stamps, regardless of state, cannot be used for anything other than groceries, defined as foods you have to cook yourself. Yes there are questionable purchases, with all the steak and lobster I’ve heard about, and yes, prepared but uncooked pizza like Papa Murphy’s qualifies, which I actually disagree with. But people are not buying liquor, televisions, fast food, etc. with Food Stamps.

          What they are doing is using their welfare payments which are also placed on the EBT card. This can be used for anything whatsoever, including cash withdrawals (drugs? hookers?). So while people may be using their EBT cards to buy crazy things, this is not actually part of the Food Stamp program.

          Having said that, there is nothing that annoys me more than seeing an EBT cart filled with crap. If you are desperate enough to take stolen money (which is what it is, why mince words?) have enough self-respect to use it for its intended use instead of trying to live it up like a good little peon. I’ve known both types of EBT holders, and the one with rice, noodles, and beans in their cart has more respect from me than the soda and chips crowd. The first suggests a genuine need from somebody trying to stretch their dollar. The second looks like somebody who doesn’t need that stolen money.

              What if you Had to pick ONE. Whats worse? EBT’s or swindler scamming jewish banksters and their cabals shafting america by loaning us cash dollars we already Own and we never needed any middle man banksters when the us treasury dept can Print dollars debt and intrest free.

              I too get pissed by free loaders on ebt. But them bankster cabals free load way worse and even 99% of so called economy money experts websites Never mentions or questions this Usury intrest swidnle system.

              ps: If all forms istrest/usury were ended, and replaced by Debt free and intrest free Cash printed dollars. Then every american would pay so little in taxes, even a minimum wage earner could be very prosperous in due time. Higher wage earners could be very prosperous within the first 6 mo to one years time.

              And our overall economy would flourish with so much more money avail to spend by all folks.

              Soon, very soon, the full years intrest paid to bankster cabals will be a full one Trillion dollars intrest. Picture that instead divided between the 50 states to fix roads etc. Or paid Back to every taxpayer in Full for every cent paid in fed tax weekly. Plus add in every cent spent for foriegn aid cash to near every nation. America could become the most updated modern nation of all nations.

              And the ONLY group to suffer a loss would be a few hundred jewish zio banksters who already have Trillions of personal wealth. End of the FED yes a good start. Let me know when Ron Paul ET AL promote also an End of all Intrest usury and I too will get excited to vote etc.

          Go to Craigslist and do a search under the wanted section for EBT. Or for sale. EBT is thick with fraud. A $200 card is worth $100 in cash. Most will be stunned at what they will find.

              Then the Only remaining question will be, do they commit suicide? Or let the jewish state of israel finish killing them off to rid the world of every goyim gentile and realize their 4000 year old utopian dream, of a totally jewish owned and run NWO-Jwo.

      • My uncle is disabled and on food stamps. He used to get about 1500 in benefits after working for 30 years. A illegal ran him over in a cross walk giving him some brain damage.
        His benefits have been slowly reduced to about $800 over the last few years and even thou he wants to be independent he just cant. He is not elegable to collect SS for another 5 years. He does buy dried beans and ramen and rice and pretty much starves to death. 6 months ago he had to move out of his RV because the police thought he might drive it and now lives in a tent in the forest. At least he can eat a little better now.

I still question how much manpower they’ll have for any attempt at gun grabbing. With an estimated 200,000,000 to 250,000,000 guns in the hands of no less than 100,000,000 people in this country I can’t picture it having any degree of success. But I am certain a lot of people on both sides will die in any attempt. We need to make the other side’s casualties so heavy and unacceptable that they’ll give up. braveheart

          Don’t know about your neighborhood but I pass by a National Guard Armory on my way to work every day. Over the past six months or so they went from just a couple of utility vehicles in the secure yard to well over a dozen, most of them the tall canvas tops for troop carries, the rest panels like medic but no markings. A couple were desert cammy, the rest forest leaf markings. I don’t live in a desert and the Middle East is not known for its Old Growth Forest so I would say these are being stored for domestic consumption.

          That’s OK. What we have can turn that canvas into a July 4th mobile sparkler.

          Very sorry to hear that, been there, done that myself. Once upon a time I was taking showers by running through the lawn sprinklers in the park at 4:00am just to shower. You had to time it right or the cops would nail you to the wall, as the parks were closed after 11:00pm.
          I lost everything, house car, belongings, you name it. Life goes on and you slowly recover.

          As far as giving ANY weapons to a felon, DON’T DO IT. The new ‘Straw man purchase Law’ says you will go to prison for 5 years just for providing said weapons to a felon. Not worth it. That is def. a crappy situation, but you have to think long term. You would be better off pawning the weapons at a decent pawn shop (or trusted friend) which gets you cash and the landlord what he legally should have, not the other way around. Just my .002 cents…

          I’m guessing he will have to look for other collateral.

          All states have an eviction process that can take a lot of time. He can’t just throw you out without breaking the law. It can’t start until you breach your contract by not paying or something else. They can argue “anticipatory breach”, but that is a tough one without them first knowing how much money and assets you have and loans etc. you can get from your family to pay the rent.

In NC & VA they have to give 24-48 hours written notice unless it is an “emergency” (ie. leaking pipes, fire or police warrant). I would seriously consider calling the police and reporting it. I would also report it to the Fair Housing commission in your state. Under no circumstances give him access to your guns, you’d be implicating yourself in any potential crimes he may commit beyond extortion, threats, blackmail etc. Cover your own ass first.

          You have 90 gays to leave. Tell the SOB to evict you. Contact DCFS, if he tries to throw you out. Contact the Policde Dept. and tell them what he told you. If they are willing to work with you set up some kind of a sting. If they won’t work with you go to the NEWS PAPER in your town and try to get a report to work with you.

They’ll get him on camera offering to buy the guns in exchange for letting you stay. By the way, how does this dirt-bag know you even have guns? You failed your OPSEC and put yourself and your family in danger.

        You have hit the nail on the head!
        This site has a lot of people looking out for themselves and their families because they are SMART!
        $230.00 can buy a lot of food, or not.
        Being in a position to need or worse rely on that money from the government though is worse.
        Frankly the fact that they aren’t using that money wisely is a testament to why they rely on handouts. No discipline, no accountability.

        The last time I saw a cart full of dried beans, peas and lentils, etc., it was my own cart. But since then I changed my food buying habits.

        Appetite fatigue is real, and I do not care who it is, that is, if the shopper is a Leslie Anne or an EBTer, they need to buy things that they like to eat after the very basics are bought.

        Stock up on things you like to eat. If you don’t you will have plenty of food going to waste, because you will not want to eat it.

        Variety is important too, because even if you buy what you like to eat, you will get tired of eating it, and because of this buy variety to keep up your interests in eating.

        I cannot wait for the collapse to come. I cannot wait for this world to be judged. I cannot wait. I am ready to leave this world to be with the Lord Jesus for ever and ever.

          Problem is, either way McD’s loses. They jobs never were intended as a career except for the management positions. Most McD’s jobs are supposed to be entry level ‘I am so leaving this company when I get some experience’ type of jobs. So the company isn’t used to having so many people working for them who are relying on that paycheck to survive.

          Choice 1a: Don’t raise salary, tell people to apply for government aid, look like a selfish bastard of a company. Employees grumble but do so.

          Choice 1b: Don’t raise salary, tell people to apply for government aid, employees get angry and tell you to go eff yourself as they walk off. Now you hire a bunch of under-trained monkeys to make the food. Oh yeah, customers love it when that happens.

          Choice 2: Raise salary, and either watch the losses roll in (most stores are franchises, and they aren’t making the kind of profits you might think they are) unless they either fire the low-ranking schlubs whose work isn’t worth the new minimum wage, or raise prices to offset the increased cost. Of course that will result in dirtier stores, poorer service, and/or higher prices; which will drive people to the other fast food locations which didn’t give a salary increase.

          No matter what happens, they lose. Kind of how we feel every time we have an election coming up.

            The soda tasted like soda flavored water. The fries tasted like they were cooked in greese a week old. The burger bun was like a long-frozen bun that had just been nuked, the “burger”(thing) was a greyish slab of something resembling meat, the “cheese” on it was like melted plastic, there was ketchup, and a rubbery green thing that looked like a slice of pickle…

            I almost tossed the whole mess in the nearest trash can, but recalling that lot’s of people in the world would be glad to eat it, and since I did pay for it, I ate it. But, have’nt been to McD’s since…

Live within your means. Remember to enjoy your life and all the good things around you as you prepare for unexpected (or expected) challenges.

      If you look at the USDA site, the average food stamp household consists of only TWO PEOPLE (and a smidgen of a third) … the USDA is AVERAGING their numbers to get their 2013 Year-To-Date figure of 275.13 ($272.00 is their July 2013 figure) to get their “household number.”

      This is right off the USDA Food Stamp site:

      Fiscal AVERAGE MONTHLY BENEFIT
      Year Per Person/Per Household

      FY 2013 133.07/275.13

      If a 1-person household gets $133.07, then a 2-person household gets $266.14, and a 3-person household gets $399.21.

      So a family of 4, on average, receives $532.28 a month for food stamps…that’s not a terrible amount.

      The stated $36.00 cut is for a family of FOUR. A single person will lose a whopping $9 a month.

      This is from Bloomberg, dated today: “Unless legislation is enacted before Friday — and none is scheduled for a vote — benefits for a family of four would be reduced by $36 per month, according to the Agriculture Department. At maximum benefit levels in the 48 contiguous states and D.C., that would work out to 5.4 percent less for that family of four.”

      I have a REALLY, REALLY hard time believing anybody receiving $532.28 a month will riot over losing $36.00 a month, as it still leaves them $496.28 a month for food stamps.

            The conference website still insists that no actual disruption of power will occur. It’s only supposed to be an enclosed conference that various agency representatives and delegates from the power grid companies are attending. They’re doing a computer simulation (in the conference center only) so that they can figure out how to work together quickly and easily, for when an actual grid failure occurs.

            This is the second time they’ve held this conference, and no grid failure happened during that drill, either.

        Save the 00Buck for the front yard scenario. You’d be ahead of the game w/ a stout center-fire rifle caliber of your preference at +100m on out. Be aware, they possess ceramic trauma plate inserts over the heart area that can take a .308AP at 10-20m!

        Aim for the head, guts or the thigh area of the legs if they’re in armored ninja garb.

          But even if the trauma plate does survive the impact of a .308 at bad-breath range, odds are the guy at the receiving end isn’t going to be in a fighting mood for a while. Granted the plate will distribute the impact some but it can only do so much.

          However, my best guess is those DHS types are trained for urban ops and extreme close quarters battle. As such I would strongly advise against going against them where they would have any sort of advantage. And toe to toe, most would lose very badly if only due to the weight of their own fire. Against any foe that has superior means, the only game in town is asymmetric warfare. That would mean harassing fire, long-range action followed by quick movement out of the area and IED strikes, either to hit them where they are based at, while they are in motion or as an ambush.

          And if you doubt my point of view, just look at what illiterate half-savages in Afghanistan have managed to do to the Brits, then the Soviets and finally NATO troops, including Canadian and American soldiers.

      There is too much instability in the world to deliberately instigate unrest and possible riots by taking food away from those who have become accustom to receiving it from the government. Me thinks, that, there is too much at stake for TPTB at this particular juncture in history. The middle-east is on tinderhooks and the situation is ready to explode. On the other hand, the banksters are raking in their profits while the rest of us our losing our principal and our equity. The ruling class have it made. Why disturb the equilibrium that favors them. Best to keep the natives happy. Having said all of this, me thinks, the best and the brightest from Harvard are going to get the surprise of their lives when something out of their sphere of control knocks down the delicate house of cards that they have created. Take every opportunity to prepare, prepare, prepare. Food,water, shelter, communications, weapons, fuel, transportation, medicines, first aid and health supplies, seeds, gardening tools and utensils, etc. Plans for hunkering down and bugging out need to be thought through carefully and it may be important to establish that network of like minded people, friends and family. It is an awfully scary thought, but, we will be on our own until that time where we can regroup and start building viable, self-supporting communities.

      After two hundred-plus years of standing strongly and proudly, America has been brought to its knees – not by Russia. Not by Communist China. Not by Al Qaeda.
      By Liberalism.
      And now that America’s down, the liberals’ kicks are coming harder and faster. 50 million on food stamps. 10 million on disability. Approx. 180 million Americans receive some form of government benefit – half the population. For every person employed in a full-time, permanent job, there are 1.07 people receiving federal “benefits”.
      The Liberals have socialized/nationalized 1/6th of the American economy – the healthcare system.
      The Liberals refuse to try to close our southern border. Little old ladies in wheelchairs are searched at airports, while young muslim men are passed over to avoid “racial profiling”.
      Our “president” alienates our greatest allies, Israel and England, while embracing the Muslim Brotherhood. The Federal Government sends arms to Al Qaeda in Syria. The government monitors the phone calls of at least 65 world leaders.
      Liberalism is bent on squeezing further $Hundreds of Billions$ from Americans in the name of “global warming”, to send to third-world countries.
      $85 Billion/mo is printed out of thin air with no end in sight.
      On and on and on.
      The frustration I feel is because I’m not allowed to fight the enemy which is destroying America. It has become mainstream, including the vast majority of the media, the US Senate and the Senate Majority Leader, much of the House of Representatives, half the US Supreme Court, all the way to the office of the President of the United States.
      These people are enemies of America. They are dedicated to its downfall. They lie, cheat, steal and kill, then blame those of us who oppose them.
      Don’t ask me why I prep.

      You see, although there are a lot of new people on SNAP because the economy blows chunks for finding work, the majority of the 48 million on food stamps are multiple-generational welfare recipients. And this permanent welfare class has been told for so long that it DESERVES their freebies that there is now a firmly-entrenched belief that anyone who tries to cut them off is robbing them.

      I see it as waking them up and helping them to see their bonds of neo-slavery to the police state that would have them starve the second the system collapses. But good luck trying to explain that to someone who just calls a number and collects their check for decades.

      Here’s what I know, since working maintenance at a major hospital since 1994. We didn’t start this emergency preparedness until after 911.At first it was just running decon drills, setting up the tent and getting dressed in personal protection suits. Then the last few years it got intense!
      1-generator testing is every other week
      2-running drills with the baraslide and chair down the steps,you know in case there’s no power we would need to evac. patients, I’m tired of this drill
      3-what we are storing, personal protection suits enough for a small army,buckets of ready to eat meals, well more than what I have,also cases of water,sorry, pallets of water.
      4-just got a delivery of barricades and traffic cones and put in storage,not just a few,a lot!
      5-led lighting, ones with the big ole battery packs as well as hand held ones…a lot of them and batteries to go with
      6-hand crank radios and hand held walkies
      7-last year got 2 new diesel storage tanks for 2 of the 3 generators, now that’s a lot of fuel
      I could go on and on, when I ask why we need all of this I get, this is standard operating procedures now for hospitals.

      This is why I prep now, something is coming down the pike soon,somebody knows something. Also seems like they are rushing to get everything in order at the hospital,in all my years there this recent activity seems…let’s just say,unusual. Would like to know if anyone else might work at a hospital that is experiencing the same procedures

          most hospitals test once monthly. I was at Hartford Hospital many years ago, and during a severe lightning storm, one of the generators was hit. When one of the power feeds to the hospital got hit, several floors of one wing of the hospital was without power, because the generator got hit. We were moving fresh open heart patients to another ICU–4 of the hospitals ICUs are in this same wing, on different floors. We moved one pt to the labor and delivery cesarean suite for adequate monitors/ventilator setup. Power was out 4 hours with nurses and respiratory therapists bagging (breathing for) patients. It was exhausting, and it was HOT. So even if testing does happen regularly, Sh!t happens!.

          When I lived in MS, we routinely had tornado and fire drills. A part of that drill was filling out a form of which patients could walk, required wheelchairs or transport by bed. Who needed oxygen and who didn’t. You don’t see that ANYWHERE in CT. If the SHTF in the hospital, I’m not sure who organizes this stuff. And when you think about electronic records and the stuff that went down during the evacuation during SANDY, Just saying, don’t spend the night alone in the hospital.

      Just as the Fed continues to push QE, I have little doubt in my mind the government could either keep pushing the current amount received for food stamps, or maybe even increase it (either before or shortly after it expires as a “we saved you” notion). No one knows when a SHTF scenario will actually be unleashed. Be prepared, be cautious, be informed, but please stop trying to predict the dates in which it will happen. You possibly could just keep pushing people away from the liberty movement each time you are wrong and could lose credibility. I think strictly instilling fear into a person’s mind isn’t the best way for someone to become prepared. Many have resorted to overindulging in their preps and severely leaving their families/themselves at financial risk assuming the worst will happen tomorrow. That type of mentality is the exact sort of thing we should be standing up against. Prepare, but we should be fiscally responsible as well as responsibly educating others not to cause panic driven prepping. As we all know, fiscal irresponsibility is part of what got us in this mess in the first place. You could end up screwing yourself over now and not even make it to when something actually does go horribly wrong. Please just take care of yourselves and be smart about it.

      • Archivist says:

        There is plenty of food. If everyone else started putting a little more food away, supply would be increased and stores would stock more of what was being bought. No one has said for everyone to go out and simultaneously buy a year’s supply all at one time. Because of the way most people are now, we don’t expect them to.

        Soybean byproduct is the hulls removed from the soybeans during processing. The hulls are high in protein and can be used as a small (up to 10%) part of cattle feed. There are probably other uses. Byproducts are not bad things. They’re just not useful for the main purpose of the main product. For example, in the US beef organs and tongues are not in big demand, so they are termed byproducts and mostly used for pet foods. There is nothing wrong with them, only that Americans don’t like them. They are delicacies in other countries, and used to be here in the old days. One of my wife’s favorite foods was the haslet stew that her grandmother used to make.

            Definition of haslet from Wikipedia:

            “Haslet refers to the heart, lungs, liver, stomach, and other edible viscera of an animal, usually a hog. In the U.S. South, these entrails are traditionally removed in one piece at hog-killing time and given to the poor.”

            • OK…we take the pig stomach and stuff it with potatoes, veggies, etc and roast it in the oven. I guess it depends on the local customs how it gets made, but here at hog butcherings, most everything is used in one way or another…everything but the squeal. The intestines were used for sausage tubes at one time and a lot of the organ meat and head meat goes into the puddin’ kettle. The fat and skin goes into the lard kettle(if you scald and scrape it instead of skinning). The fried skin becomes cracklins, if you’ve ever eaten them. By adding corn meal and pepper to the kettle with “scraps” you can cook up what is known as scrapple. Good fried with syrup. I must be getting hungry the way I’m running on here.

              Anyway, thanks for the info.

        soybean is fed to livestock for protein. without it, gains are slower, less milk is produced (it’s less profitable, that’s why grass fed beef is more expensive, it takes 24 months to butcher weight vs. 15months on grain/beanmeal)

        soybeans are also used in people food, mostly in the form of oil (check your pantry’s ingredients most contain soy or soy product -tvp )

        some say that soybeans have estrogenic properties which might supply the answer to why there are so many commercials for prostate relief, and erectile disfunction; and breast cancer #’s are so high (that could also be the high % of hormone based birth control too)
        I’m not a biochemist, although I wish I were, because trying to research this is impossible with science gone to s#$t and public consensus since the “global warming is science” crap. you don’t know what to believe.

        when people say “stock up on basics like rice and beans” it’s because they are easy to store and have long shelf lives. and the added bonus to beans – you can use them as seeds, (i grew 3 rows of black beans that my daughter opened a bag of to soak for a mexican recipe). the growth of the bean plants fixes nitrogen in the soil for subsequent crops. they are also good for you to eat because they are high in magnesium and fiber (moves things along). and they don’t go bad if you don’t let them absorb moisture.

        as far as there isn’t enough food to stock, there are estimates that as much as 50% of food goes to waste in landfills, but that figure is probably lower because THEY use it to justify more global worming protocols and taxes. (rotting food == methane emissions)

        as for you comment on white flour/sugar and corn products–
        that is why the large % of americans are obese. the food pyramid, food plate dictates eating highest propoortion of grains and empty carbs which is stored as fat.
        humans need protein, calcium and animal fats in order to operate efficiently. and fiber/to move things along.

        our “betters” tell us this because sheep are easier to control if they are starving for nutrients. as well as creating a crisis that they need more $ to suck us dry.

            While I understand that 5gal cans are easier to handle I truly hate them. It may not work well for many people but what we do is have two L transfer tanks. Both are 105 gal, one for diesel and one for gasoline. The one for gas we use in commuting cars and refill monthly, the diesel ones are for farm use and to fill the 300 gal gravity tank.
            You can go to auctions and buy transfer tanks really cheaply or buy new. If you can weld you can make them yourself easy enough, but remember to pressure test it for leaks. You can also buy them as small as 50 gal.

            With regards to the 12 volt pumps, I have tried the cheap ones and have found that tuthil makes them that pump 15 gal/min and you can buy spare parts. They are very well made and have never had a problem with them.

            If you don’t have a pickup to dedicate the tank to simply put it on rollers in the garage to move it around and when it gets close to empty load it on a little utility trailer and take to refill.

            What I like about refilling cars with it is that it is always being rotated with fresh gas and I don’t have to worry as much about price spikes during the holidays or sabre rattling.

                Hey JJ. I am not sure what you are asking. But here is why we cycle through our gas in cars. The only things that run on gas at our place besides the cars are a gas driven welder/generator and small engines. It would take us years to cycle through that amount of gas with those. So in order to keep fresh gas on hand we use it in cars.
                My fear is that I go to fill anything up and spend the following 3 days replacing plugs and cleaner carbs.
                So it is just easier for us to do it that way. It is also nice for the wife to get up make coffee and let me know that while I am out feeding animals to fill her car up as well. Very convenient for her.

Many other quakes 6.5 to 7.2 hit 100% of the time within 15 days of this same spot having a moderate or larger earthquake. The Prince Edwards Islands quake occurred in the same spot in 1994 and a 7.8 followed in Japan 9 days later.

These are very specific, as 40% of these major earthquakes that followed in the past have been in Japan, China, Alaska, and Pacific Northwest.

      @ Gone2Hilo. This is IMPORTANT, please if you see this, respond back.

      You say that Trident Subs are being flanked by foreign subs and then going back out to sea. Do they actually know these are submarines that are doing this? Back before the 1989 World Series earthquake in San Francisco the same signals were picked up and the U.S. Navy thought that Russian Boomers were off the coast of California. It turns out that the fault was emitting signals that duplicated an enemy submarine. The Puget Sound and the Pacific Northwest are getting a lot of energy back fed to these divergent outer faults. This could mean that the Cascadia fault is ready to break if these signals received are not submarines but the planet’s crust sending the signals that the navy is picking up. Please try to find out more about this anyone out there. Either case, nuclear subs or the planet, means something quite ugly.

      Everyone on SNAP has already been informed VIA a letter that is sent to them a month prior to this of the expected cut in the amount their household receives. Everyone gets these letters from their county office. Most are aware of the cuts that are coming and have been for weeks. So I do not anticipate rioting in the streets over this. However, if we have a situation next winter where there are more cuts to the SNAP program, or if it is cut completely due to the debt ceiling limit, then I do believe it’s going to get really bad.

      DHS has been gearing up for this because they know next winter these benefits are more than likely going to get cut significantly cut again, or all together. We cannot keep sustaining millions on SNAP. There’s just no way it can be done.

      As I mentioned in another thread, my husband works for a local grocer and has told me that the incidences of shoplifting are going up, in record number for the store. We are in a small town and people are getting desperate already. The churches that give food and free meals are holding on by threads. People on SNAP are saying that the benefits do not last but two weeks or 3 weeks, and that they are going hungry at the end of the month. Now, the benefits are cut again. I expect to see a sharp rise in crime up here.

      We have no homeless up here, ever. All of the sudden homeless people are showing up and sleeping in 30 degree temps over night on the county court house lawn for the past two weeks. When my neighbors spoke with one of the guys, he said he was in the Bay Area of California and word is getting around to get OUT because SHTF very soon.

      So, a sharp rise in crime, theft, etc. I expect this within a matter of a couple weeks or so.

        Why not??
        Which is more important to this nation?
        Feeding the part of the public that needs it–those without jobs, not moochers(and if I was in charge, I would know the difference!!!)? Or sending 2 billion to Egypt?? Or 3 billion to Israel??

        This kind of puts it in a better perspective since we gave $37 billion this year to date in foreign aid to countries that hate us and criticize us in every way(partly deserved, by the way).
        $78 billion was spent last year on food stamps.

        So, let us cut off that $37 billion BEFORE we start taking peas from seniors that worked and paid taxes for 40 years.
        Or at least remove cable from the homes first.

      The $36.00 is not that much, but when you add in that the cost of food has gone up around 12% or just say 10 cents a can of corn. The numbers start to add up. In short if they are good folks that are really needy they are only going to take home two bags and not three bags of food. These folks will feel the pinch

      Now for the Leaches and Zombies. Good!!! Its these clowns that are RAPING the system.

      The 6th generation of Leaches and Zombies will figure out away to get more while the people that really need it will get screwed!!!!

      This B.S. has been going on now for around 55 years. I understand that the greatest country on earth should be able to help its people in time of need. But to make it a life style is B.S. and that is what is going on today.

      If it was up to me I would put alot of people to work. Hers how. Make every one that gets aid come to a office some where with in 30 days and prove why they need aid.(office workers, going to need a lot of them) If you are like the girl in my other post (17 with 2 kids living with mom, and won’t work because it would cut off her aid)You would have 30 days to get a job because on that 31st. You don’t get aid. Oh by the way the mother is also on aid, for the 17 year old and her borthers X2 and sisters X2. Do you see where I’m going with this.

      There are people out there that believes its a life style. There are people out there that is a need and they should get the aid.

      I help my kids when I can. Hell I had to go back to work parttime just to make ends meet. If I wasn’t paying so much tax (I’m glad for the blessings of work)I could help my kids and grand kids more. This is the way it should be. I (WE) should not be paying for any Zombie/Leach.

      depending on the rate of food inflation over the coming months…that $36 cut might begin to feel more like $72 or $100 if TPTB cannot maintain the fiat illusion of market/price stability.

      Right now inflation is being masked y reduction of product size/volume and cheaper processing and packaging. But that will only go so far.

      IMHO the poor and the working poor why supplement their income with government benefits need to face the fact that the emporer doesn’t even own the clothes he’s wearing.

      [taking food out of peoples’ mouths.]

      B.S.! The absence of a positive is not a negative. Refusing to give somebody a freebie is not “taking food out of their mouths” — it’s refusing to put food IN. They’ve not earned it and they have no rightful expectation of something they’ve not earned.

      You could cut EVERY federal handout and you would not be taking anything away from anyone — ‘to stop giving’ is not the same as ‘to take’.

      These ridiculous ideas are at the root of why we can never fix anything in this country.

      If most of the people on food stamps actually NEEDED the food stamps, I’d agree that this could cause a riot. Fact is, though, most of the people on them DON’T need them, they only want them so that they can have a little extra money to spend elsewhere. This will be a discomfort for many, but only a few will truly suffer. And for those few, I’m betting that the food kitchens will be able to make up the difference for most of them. For now this is a non-issue.

      The Nasdaq was hit with another market glitch on Tuesday, as index data froze just before lunchtime and remained frozen for nearly an hour.

      In a statement at 12:15 p.m. ET, Nasdaq OMX Group said it was looking into an issue with index data feeds. Stocks on Nasdaq were trading normally, however.

      The indexes resumed normal quotation just after 12:37 p.m. ET, Nasdaq said.

      Before the freeze, the Composite index last stood at 3,940.02. Once it resumed, it rose 3 points to 3,943.

While in the intake office, the lady there asked if i was applying for a food box (I’m disabled confined to a wheelchair). I told her no, I collect SSDI and work part time. She asked do I get food stamps? I told her no because I work part time. So I really do not need to apply for a food box, thanking her. She did give me a puzzled look, why I don’t know. During some small talk about how bad things are she mentioned a little tid bit of info. When adults that are on SSDI if they have children the child gets like a couple hundred bucks a month from SSDI. That benefit is going to be cut off. I didn’t catch when that was going to happen. Nov. 1st of the new tear, I should have asked.
      So if you can imagine an a family that gets SSDI and has any number of children, lets say 5 that is like a grand they will no longer be getting each month. There goes the SUV payment, all the electric crack devices, ect…
      Add that to the $36.00 amount cut.

      I could do the shopping for any of these typical families and purchase their groceries in a manner that would have them well fed with healthy, tasteful, and highly nutritious foods…..even with the upcoming cuts……and still have money left at the end of the month to do some stock piling. I carefully look at what other people put in their grocery carts when I am at the store. I feel nauseated thinking about eating the GARBAGE, HIGHLY PROCESSED FOODS that most people purchase.
      Therein lies the REAL problem. In this country, as in some other western countries, people eat CRAP! They pay outrageous prices for it too.
      So, when things go to hell and all the freeloaders begin to scream and cry because they are nt getting enough handouts………oh well.
      Now, in saying this, I am NOT referring to the millions of people who have always been hard working and responsible citizens.
      I AM TALKING ABOUT ALL THE WELFARE QUEENS AND THEIR MEN…….TYPICALLY MEN WHO REVOLVE IN AND OUT OF JAIL OR PRISON. I am talking about the women who have a child by every low life scum bucket they bedded down with. If YOU go hungry, or starve, or your kids go hungry, or starve, I DO NOT GIVE A RAT’s BUTT!
      I have worked my butt off since I was a kid. I did what ever jobs were available in our small, rural community. I studied my butt off and got good grades. I got pell grants and loans for school. I have a master’s degree and have never been out of a job. I chose a profession that I knew would always need people. I did NOT follow my dreams, but I made certain that I was self sufficient. Even when I sustained a severe and disabling injury, twice, I returned to work and worked……in pain….severe pain. I did not allow myself to get hooked on pain medication. It is a mind set….you put one foot in front of the other and keep focused upon the NEXT step.
      I also have provided a forever home for more than 50 dogs who had or have medical problems. They have been very well cared for and have had wonderful lives.
      NOW……..if I have been able to do that, having been born in the early 1950′s ….what the HELL kind of excuse do the frogging freeloaders have?
      Cuts to your benefits? Oh well.
      Get rid of the junk food, the cigarettes, the booze, the gambling , etc. maybe you can even work….you can mow lawns, shovel snow, lean homes, babysit, do laundry for others, wash cars, etc…….there are things you can do to earn money.

      Wow, for a armed nation, you are all cowards, your moronic satanic government has screwed you big time, stripped you of your freedom and what dignity you may have possessed, and all you do is sit back and take it.
      You really deserve to be enslaved, Land of the brave and free, is now Land of the quivering cowards, under slavery. Rome-2

        no….not exactly….it just hasn’t reached the point where it sucks so bad in the USA that the decision whether or not to “do something” by patriotic, constitution-loving, legally-armed and God-fearing Americans becomes unanimous.

        But we all see it heading in that direction to one extreme or another, and for now it’s pretty unanimous that things are getting worse and not better….and that the government is positioning itself against the common people in favor of the elite and itself rather than in support of them.

        Nobody wants to break the law or spend the rest of their life in jail or “disappeared” following a DHS-sanctioned kangaroo court. And in a propaganda-driven political/social environment where farting in public could be considered an act of domestic terrorism, common people are thinking twice before acting out.

        Thanks for the insult though…I shall take care to avoid reading any of your posts in the future.

      I’ve been reading some of the stuff posted here, I have to say that most people are going to sit down on the ground and stare blankly into another dimension, when anything major comes down.
      50 lbs of Beans, apr.$17.50 and 50 lbs of rice apro. $20. 1 cup of beans and 1 cup of rice a day can keep you alive as long as you have water, indefinitely.
      Yet the same $17.50 will get you 3 meals at McDonalds that nutritionally, will kill you sooner or later.
      55 gallon drum, food grade for water storage, $40, trip for 2 to the movies More than that! 55 Gallons of water can last you up to a month, the movies good for 2 hours.
      Our priorities are screwed up.
      Most people will panic and go into a Mob mentality, when confronted with a crisis.
      Remember the cabbage Patch fist fights in Toys are us?
      It took 2 hours to strip a Super Walmart bare. there wasn’t even a crisis.
      How long do you really think its going to take when something really bad happens?
      Most people can’t fish or hunt anymore, our children are going to freak out when X-Box doesn’t work anymore.
      American Blackout was a wake up call, it already happened in New York and Texas, if you come near my house thinking your going to mooch of my families food supply, because you sleeple are too stupid to spend even a minimum amount of money to be prepared for an emergency, you’d better know, I will have no sympathy for you or food to spare.
      That’s why its called an emergency, your being told to prepare, the problem with burying your head in the sand is your butt is sticking straight into the air where a predator can bite it off.

    92. maybe my name is larry the walmart guy says:

      I told you ahead of time before it became news, I saw it on a MEMO for management at Walmart. I can’t get any more information because they have locked out the office doors to everybody except the police and management. The MEMO said it was not for NOV. But FOREVER no more food stamps at all. The police are using our Walmart as a police station. I see police officers coming and going. On any given day you will have four to five police officers walking around inside the store. Several of them are wearing fatigues. I tried taking pictures, with a cheap camera phone, but it didn’t work. I make 7.70 hr. If one of you can come over and take pictures with your good camera would be great to let people know that this is real man. I will give the address and location of the Walmart. It is located near a new FEMA camp or whatever they call them now. The walmart is located on Cockrell Hill Rd. off of I30 in Dallas TX. Just down the road, in between Hampton and Cockrell Hill they have the camp that they are building up. It is not far from a AT&T building that was built not long ago. They also have a weird water tank and some other weird stuff going on out there. Anyway, I feel that the whole set up is one big plan to get people killed eventually when the time is right for them to do it. I keep trying to find out more if I can, also the cargo boxes in the back most of them have been moved to a nearby warehouse where they are storing food and water, I have seen it, but dis not have a camera to take pictures with. Working at walmart for 7.70 hr. is a bitch and I take the bus to work and have to use the library to get on the net. Anyway I will try to give anybody as much information as I can about what I see.

      The EBT program cost $80 billion a year. We give Wall Street $85 billion A MONTH-on top of the $1 Trillion hand out in 2008 and every tax break possible. I believe our focus on cuts is misplaced.

    95. Not So Much is a complete Tool. You and brainwashed idiots worshipping your Jew Jeebus deserve to get everything that’s coming your way because you’re all moral cowards hiding behind some scribbled nonsense, because you don’t have the stones to stand up to the scum sucking demons who run this dump. You are the biggest part of the problem we’re facing right now but too stupid to realize it.

      I have seen a lot of Americans of late and none of them looked like they didn’t have enough to eat. Guaranteed, if you are at a public gathering with a mix of nationalities, the Americans will always be the biggest and fattest people there. A 13% drop in food assistance would probably do them some good.
