Evidence has surfaced indicating the Obama administration was prepared to suspend all food-stamp payments beginning Nov. 1 in a political move to pressure Republicans in Congress to reopen the government and agree to continued deficit spending. . .

. . .The Obama administration instructed state directors of the SNAP program to take the steps even though the likely consequences were that low-income households with children might not be able to buy food, with the added risk that a sudden suspension of food stamp payments might incite unrest across the nation.

Michigan state budget director John Nixon expressed his alarm to ABC 10 in Ishpeming, Mich. He said that also on the slate for suspension in the case of a government shutdown extending beyond Oct. 15 were food programs in the Woman, Infants and Children feeding program, or WIC, the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, or TANF, cash-assistance program and the school-lunch program.

Nixon told ABC 10 that he expected WIC would be the first of the nutrition programs to be affected by the government showdown, with Michigan having to suspend nutritional benefits and education for around 200,000 Michigan women and children.

Approximately 20 percent of all American households on food stamps, amounting to 23.1 million households and 47.6 million individuals, were recorded to be on the SNAP program as of July.

As WND reported yesterday, chaos erupted in two Louisiana Wal-Mart stores on Oct.14 when a temporary power outage caused the EBT to malfunction.

The computer glitch that affected food stamp shoppers in Louisiana evidently spread across 17 states, leaving millions without “funding” with which to purchase food. (Computer glitch in 17 states? No, no, no…this was a test run – I.M.)

USDA-letter-FOOD-STAMP-STOPPAGE-Oct-23-20131WND also reported yesterday that according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service, the benefit increase granted by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to help people adversely affected by the recession is scheduled to expire Nov. 1.

The USDA projects that the average monthly food stamp payment of approximately $272 per household will decline in November by $36 for a family of four.

This week, the Federal Business Opportunities website posted a notice that the Federal Protective Service of the Department of Homeland Security was seeking to spend $80 million on hiring private armed guards to protect IRS and other government buildings in upstate New York during evidently anticipated “public demonstrations” and “civil disturbances.”

While DHS did not identify why the request was made, the agency is preparing for potential public protests against the IRS and other government facilities in upstate New York.

According to estimates drawn from the Congressional Budget Office and the Office of Management and Budget, approximately 83 percent of government operations continued, with the shutdown affecting only approximately 17 percent of the federal funds scheduled to be spent during the time the “shutdown” was operative. - Read Full Article By Jerome R.

(I.M Citizen: This is obviously another way for the criminal psychopaths to orchestrate chaos throughout the land to provide an excuse for a gun confiscation/martial law crackdown. Sadly, it is probably too late for the generational city-sheeple.

The last 70 years have been dedicated to making as many Americans as possible reliant on the system so they can shut it down and decimate the herd. Understand that housing and food payments, social security, disability and other programs will be shut down because all electronic financial transactions will be shut down. From the start, that was the point of “computerizing the system”.)
