Full title is "Riots Loom As Food Stamp Cash Will Run Out By End Of January If Government Shutdown Continues". Things may get interesting come February ?


According to the Department of Agriculture, if this government shutdown stretches into February there won’t be money for food stamps. And it certainly looks like this shutdown could last for quite a while, because President Trump is not backing down on his demand for border wall funding, and the Democrats have pledged not to give him a single penny.

So a few weeks from now, approximately 38 million people could be suddenly cut off from the food stamp program. If that scenario were to unfold, there is no telling what could happen. After just a few days, government workers are already freaking out about having their paychecks delayed.

As far as some of the things I have read Trump is saying he will have the legal border crossing points shut down, terminate trade deals, cut aid unless the wall is funded.. Sounds like a little exercise of presidential powers, no ?


President Trump warned Friday that if Democrats do not agree to his demands to fund a wall on the southern border, he will “close the Southern border entirely” and cut aid to Central American countries -- while pulling back on trade with Mexico.

“We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” he tweeted Friday morning. “Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!”

I do not believe Trump is gonna cave on this topic of the wall.. It will be interesting on how all this plays out. No food stamps to quell the less fortunate from protest in the streets with MSN camera's focused with the partisan "Mean orange man Trump" headlines and another 15,000 illegals on the way to the promised land.. Interesting times we live in..

Maybe with the threat of no trade with Mexico they will get off their butts and stop the wood-be migrants before they ever cross the Mexican border.. I do have my doubts though..

Not exactly true...


Ongoing activities include essential Federal functions to maintain the core programs of the nutrition safety net, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Child Nutrition Programs, and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC);

All of these programs will continue to serve eligible people through USDA’s partners (State agencies and other grantees) utilizing legally available Federal resources previously provided to them or their own resources. All have funding available to operate through the month of February, and many have funds to continue operations through March, without additional appropriation.


USDA Press Release

However, the bureaucrats OVERSEEING the programs will be cut by 95% in January.


According to the statement, 61% of the Department of Agriculture's employees would continue to work through the first week of the shutdown, but that number would decrease the longer the shutdown continues.
Some of the agency's offices to be hit hardest by the closure include the office of Food and Nutrition Services that oversees the Child Nutrition, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). By the end of the fifth day of the shutdown, staffing will be cut by 95%.

In the mean time another wall has been completed...www.rt.com...


While certain politicians are still having difficulties getting their walls built, Russia has announced it had finished a border barrier between Ukraine and Crimea. Construction took just over a year and less than $3 million.

Bids for building the two-meter tall, 60-kilometer long fence separating the peninsula from Ukraine opened in September 2017. The Federal Security Service (FSB) announced the project’s completion on Thursday. The contract was estimated at approximately 200 million rubles, or $2.87 million at current exchange rates.


Someone believes in a wall.. hahah... At that price (the video looks good as far as walls/barriers go) maybe we could contract the Russians to build the wall for us ?youtu.be...


It looks like they even have a wind generator to power the electronic stuff needed by the fence.. WTG Ruskies !

They didn't. Neither did the full Senate.

You think if your means of feeding yourself and your family is about to change, that you would start looking for a way

If you don’t, you are either in very bad shape or waiting for Darwinism to take hold

You are correct he said if there was no funding for the wall he would shut the government down. Cause and effect.. He has further stated he would close the border and stop trade with Mexico and other countries in south and central America. You gotta figure he is not just posturing and will continue to push as his big responsibility as president is protecting the USA as commander and chief ..

As a Marine friend of mine once said, " We could put the Marines on the border and have them move south until we can find an area which is easily defended ".. He figured the Panama Canal looked like a good border to him.. It may come to that one day long after I am dead and gone.. The NWO crowd wants Canada, America, and south American states to have open borders so that is certainly one way of going about it.. I like Mexican food... a win win for everyone as all are now a citizen of this new cluster F they will create.

So how many people actually fall into those categories? Not 46.5 million.

When are you going to stop believing what trump says?

He is not going to close the border nor is he going to stop trade with Mexico. Trump doesnt have the testicular fortitude, nor has he even since his presidency taken the blame for anything under any circumstances to any level as the commander in chief....


Trump put how many billionaires who bought him into an office position in his cabinet?

Why happened to Mexico paying for the wall...

What happened to Mexico 'Indirectly' paying for the with the new TPP trade deal?

What happened to health care for all Americans...

But "degrass".

People who don't want better border security are fools.
I'm pro Legal immigration.
If a wall will stop it I'm for it. If it's just a cane plan in order to please the masses because of fanatics politics, or to just get a 'win' then no.

The problem of illegals is going to trickle down to more than food stamps... unfortunately trump is not the LEADER who has the mind capacity of a fix (neither did 0bama)
