Without Food Stamps in the USA.

Tom's Journal.

Hello Good People !
    Ha!   I just got to laugh at what stupidity and total ignorance so many people have in the good old USA....Ha!   Didn't these people at least get a high school education and study any economics or "Home Economics" in school ???   That's what happens when Society smiles on 'babies having babies' to get that welfare check going early in life...  duh.   And I am not referring to any race, national origin, groups, etc....  but just plain old common sense.   The bible teaches real 'Christians' to learn a trade and WORK !!  Oh no, that horrible four letter word..... WORK !  Shame on me.... lol.    I paid heavy ass taxes all my life so that some folks can just sit at home watching TV, or getting young girls pregnant so they can start collecting all the benefits, while I hope to feast on a can of sardines.   I even have to pay taxes on my pension money.... duh!    Give me a break, please.  And those same oinks would riot and terrorize the city and hard working neighbors if they don't get the goodies from the corrupt Gov't....  but that is only the beginning, friends.    Even a poor person with the I.Q. of below 69 can figure this stuff out.  And the 'Lefty-Loosers' want so bad to ban all of our guns now ?   OK, fine.    Not.   
    Wait until I post what is happening in Venezuvala right now, and the rest of the world.   Read 'em and weep  -- you ain't seen nothin' yet.

How Would You Survive Hyperinflation in Venezuela?


printing-moneyVenezuela is currently in the throes of a devastating economic collapse that was spawned by the ignorant socialist policies of the Chavez/Maduro government. Everything is falling apart there. The water system, the roads, the electrical grid, the hospital, and especially the food distribution system. Venezuelans are so desperate that they are forced to scrounge for food in dumpsters and hunt down cats and dogs. Crime is rampant as well, and the capital city of Caracas now has the highest murder rate in the world. Mobs of vigilantes are frequently seen picking up the slack of the corrupt police; that is, when they’re not busy looting grocery stores. Venezuela is practically a war zone now.
However, the worst part of this economic collapse is the rapid inflation of Venezuela’s currency. That may sound minor when compared to soaring crime rates and dumpster diving, but the diminishing status of Venezuela’s currency (the bolívar) is what enables so many of the moral and financial tragedies in that country. To one degree or another, inflation is related to every facet of Venezuela’s collapse.
In 2003 the situation was quite different. A dollar could be exchanged for 1.6 bolívars. Now the exchange rate is 172 bolívars per dollar, but that’s just the official exchange rate. That’s what you would get if you walked into a Venezuelan bank. On the black market, it would take 996 bolívars to buy a single dollar. With an inflation rate of 180% (and those are just the official numbers) Venezuela’s currency fits the definition of hyperinflation.
Considering how much damage this hyperinflation has done to the economy and the very fabric of society, it has to make you wonder. What would you do if this happened in your country? What steps could you take to survive when your money becomes worthless?
Much has already been written on the subject, and most preppers are already familiar with this sound advice: take your rapidly diminishing currency, and buy something that will at least hold its value no matter how many zeros show up on your money. The most common assets that are recommended for preserving your wealth include:
  • Precious metals
  • Cash held in other currencies
  • Land
  • Non-perishable food
  • Drugs and other medical supplies
  • Weapons and ammunition
However, I would say that what you need to survive hyperinflation is the same thing that is crucial to your survival in any disaster. You need to have the right skills, which for this scenario, would fall under two categories. First, you need to know how to do things that will help you get by when society at large is falling apart. The kind of skills that aren’t as essential when you live in a prosperous nation, such as:
  • Growing food
  • Hunting and gathering
  • First Aid
  • Car Repair
  • Self Defense
  • Bartering
And second, you need the kind of skills that will make you money no matter how bad things get. Just because hyperinflation tends to screw up society, doesn’t mean everything is going to completely grind to halt. People will still need basic goods and services, and they will still desperately want to live in a functional society, even if it’s just the shadow of a functional society. You’ll still be able to find a job.
However, just as hyperinflation diminishes the value of a currency, so to will many jobs pay less during and after a collapse. That’s not just because the money isn’t worth the same. With so much widespread poverty, everyone will be desperate to enter the job market, including the very young and the very old. In other words, the labor pool will have lots of supply and very little demand, so employers will have the economic leverage to pay their workers a pittance. However, some jobs will be able to retain some of their value, such as:
  • Just about anything to do with the medical field
  • Farming
  • Private security
  • Mechanics, plumbers, electricians, or repairmen of any kind
  • Teachers and tutors, especially if they can impart money-making skills
At the end of the day however, your skills will only get you so far depending on how long the crisis lasts. In the case of Venezuela, the situation is about as dire as it can get. Sometimes an economic collapse merely destroys any chance of prosperity for the average citizen. But in Venezuela, the economic climate hasn’t just killed prosperity. It has made it damn near impossible for anyone to survive.
So at the end of the day, the best way to survive an economic collapse is to flee the country. Everyone in your family should have their passports, and enough money to leave the country before the SHTF. In Venezuela, everyone who could leave did so a few years ago. Now most people can’t even afford to leave their city, much less the country.
Be prepared to lose most of the money you’ve spent your whole life saving, because even before the collapse occurs, the government will likely have laws in place that will prevent you from taking money out of the country. However, that may be a small price to pay in exchange for not living in hell hole where you have to eat trash to survive. Cut your losses and start a new life in a new country if you can. You’ll pat yourself on the back when your homeland collapses, because it is always better to be a poor man in a rich country, than a dead man in a poor country.

Report: EBT Outs For 8 Days: Without Food Stamps, 40 Million Americans Would “Start Rioting Tomorrow”

Editor’s Comment: If the EBTs were to be shut off on a widespread basis, it is a certainty that horrific riots would results. If the problem were on a nationwide basis, then the chaos would engulf the entire country within days. If such an event were to occur alongside ATMs running out of funds too, the debasement and rampaging violence would take place even sooner and involve more people.
EBT issues have come up a few times before in the news, and may have been part of a response test. A news channel in the Atlanta area covered what happened when a large portion of residents were cut off.

Suffice to say, the real thing would be hell on earth in just seconds flat. The particulars of the reason why hardly matters, but a simply malfunction would be enough to usher in the end times.
EBT Card Outage?: It Is 8 Days Into June And Many Americans Are STILL Waiting For Food Stamp Money
by Michael Snyder
Widespread reports continue to pour in from all over the nation of “glitches” with the food stamp system.  It is eight days into the month and large numbers of people still have not received their benefits, and in other instances it is being reported that EBT cards are simply not working correctly.  So what in the world is going on here?  On there are scores of reports of problems with the EBT system from people all over the nation.  Could this simply be another example of government incompetence, or is something else at work here?
I had heard some rumblings about this over the past few days, but I had not really taken them seriously until I read an article from highly respected author Ray Gano
It interesting over the weekend I got several emails telling me about cell phones being down, internet being down, and get this, EBT cards not working and having no money associated to them.
This is a concern because when the US Government has payment failures, then there is possibly something happening that the press is not telling you about.
Now, we know that computers have problems and that states, counties and cities run on computers. But what is interesting is that since the beginning of 2016, The US government has had over 2,700 reports on showing that they have been late loading the money onto these EBT cards.
Folks, we are now going on 8 days where the Government has not paid the EBT payments so that people have food.
So I went over to myself, and I was stunned to see that reports of EBT outages continue to pour in every hour.  Here are just a few of the recent comments that have been left by people that are still waiting for their food stamp benefits for June…
Heidi Lynn: I was supposed to get mine on the 5th and still nothing. Even ebt NJ site says $0 as well as my EBT card says $0. I’m on disability. I forgot to add I tried calling NJ Board of Services and was on hold for over an hour. I had to hang up to take dog out, etc. Does anyone know what’s going on yet?
Ann Wilson: Now that it’s been a whole week since I was supposed to get my June benefits, and haven’t, I’m planning on going to my Illinois FCRC office. I hope they will be able to fix this difficulty.
Jenn Johnson: I always get mine on time. I was due to get mine today June 7th and nothing. I am from kentucky. Why is there nothing on the news about this?
Jarrett Manhart: Havnt received mine either. They are never late. And my fone is off so i cant call em. Im on Wi-Fi down the street from me.
Sunny Nicole Jones: I haven’t gotten mine either! I’m glad it’s not just me though because then I would really be worried!
But when I went to confirm these widespread outages with articles from the mainstream media, I came up empty.
Either the mainstream media does not know what is going on yet, or it is being ignored.
If you have not gotten your EBT benefits for this month yet or you know someone that is in that position, please feel free to let me know.  I want to get to the bottom of this.  There are people all over the nation that are reporting problems with the food stamp system, but nobody seems to know exactly how widespread this issue is just yet.
Today there are well over 40 million Americans on food stamps, and a lot of them would start rioting tomorrow if you told them that their food stamp cards were being turned off permanently.
EBT cards are the modern equivalent of the bread lines of the 1930s.  Instead of having to wait in long lines for food, the government just zaps money on to EBT cards each month, and those that are hurting are able to get something to eat.
But down in Venezuela, extremely long food lines are a daily reality for much of the population right now.  The following comes from the Daily Mail
Venezuela was once South America’s richest nation, but a fall in oil prices combined with other economic problems has led to desperate citizens taking drastic measures.
Nearly half of Venezuelans say they can no longer afford to eat three meals a day, according to a recent poll by the local firm Venebarometro. The poll surveyed 1,200 adults at their homes during the first week of April and had a margin of error of plus or minus of about two percentage points
Those who can, cross the border into Colombia to buy, bring back and then use or sell food and other basic commodities.
Could you imagine not being able to provide three meals a day for your family any longer?
Close to half the population of Venezuela is already in that position, and the economic collapse down there grows worse with each passing day.
Most Americans just assume that nothing like that could ever happen here.
Most Americans just assume that the government will always have plenty of money to give out.
As I mentioned above, there are well over 40 million Americans that receive EBT benefits.
However, when you factor in all government programs, more than 100 million Americans get some form of money or benefits from the federal government each month.
So what would happen someday if suddenly the spigot was turned off?
What would those 100 million people do?
How would they survive?
Hopefully this current EBT outage is just a temporary technical glitch, and hopefully the government will get it fixed in short order.
But someday there will be a major crisis that will cause food stamp benefits to be cut off either permanently or for an extended period of time.
When that day arrives, what will that do to our communities?

Living with Islamic Terror.

Tom's Journal.

Hello Friends,
      Well,  I got back from Kenosha, WI., Sunday morning after a 4 hour drive, and almost fell asleep at the wheel a few times, so I stopped at a gas station to get a cold Cherry Coke, to 'jolt me back to reality' and help me stay awake, along with fervent prayers to the Father.   I saw a number of close, important friends, and gave them some things, precious to me -- and them,  also telling them that I 'didn't expect to see them again'..... because of dangerous end times....  etc., and not because I don't want to see them again.   They are very special to me, combat Veterans, and friends for over 30 years.   I fell down on concrete twice outside my Hotel, misjudging the steep step, and got bruised up.   It was so HOT and HUMID down there, like at least in the 90's !!   Holy Cow!  
        Not to be sour, or depressed, or negative, or closed minded,  but I am now thinking/ figuring that most ladies I meet are so materialistic, aggressive, selfish, and want everything their way --- or they hit the highway ! !   Either that, or I am missing something....  duh.    I am trying to be very honest with myself, and let most women have their way, strip me of my wealth, money, etc.,  but they want to wear the pants and have EVERYTHING their way !   Of course, there are millions of GOOD, CHRISTIAN WOMEN all over the world,  but I think I have learned my lesson now.   Maybe it's just 'too late now' and I need to just live alone, single, and get ready for the Lord..... 
       2nd Timothy 3, starting with verse one:   "This know also, that in the last days,  perilous time shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers,  incontinent [unable to contain/ restrain themselves],  fierce, dispisers of those who are good,  Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof,  from such turn away. Verse 6.  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive  silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts."   KJV Bible.   Obviously,  we certainly ARE in those "Last Days" right now, and things are super 'ripe' now in this Summer time for things to really accelerate and become unhinged.... if you know what I mean.
       If some of you good people ever watched a movie starring Clint Eastwood, in "GRAND TORINO,"  you will know what I mean about 'getting all my things in order,'  right now, preparing.   I am so sorry, please forgive me, for not being able to see more close, loved ones,  but I was pretty 'beat up' and hurting bad, and things just didn't go the way that I planned, and someone certainly took advantage of my good, kind, loving nature..... again, and messed me up.  Enough said....Ha!   Let me say again,  'That so many women CLAIM to be Christian,' but they don't have the foggiest idea of what that term is, and God will 'wake them up, shortly' and deal with them.   As for me, I am always trying to work on my own personality, with the help of the H.S. [Holy Spirit], and realize that I still have a long way to go.  The Rapture, or death, will finally take me where I need to go.....
       Oddly enough,  I am still a happy man, and still know how to roll with the punches.   If some of my words seem to be cryptic --- it's because they are MEANT to be that way, as a 'language' and messages to certain people who know me -- and can verily understand what I am saying, clearly.   To the rest of you,  sorry.
       It's kind of strange that the weather is actually cold U.P. here where I live,  but I can deal with that by simply putting on a shirt and socks....  lol.    But oppressive heat and humidity is different and makes me so uncomfortable.   So, there are some distinct advantages to living in the far Northern part of Michigan, in the U.P.   And the people up here seem to like, enjoy, love it here.   They are a 'different breed.'   And the dollar seems to go farther up here and that is why many folks love to retire up here, too.   The big cities to the South are so full of traffic grid lock with an evil spirit down there that drives people crazy, and mean, IMHO.   

As for the big shooting in Orlando, FL.,  let me say that this is just the beginning!   And if there were ANY legal concealed carry people at the scene,  the body count might have been a lot less !!   But, Obama and the Dims just love to manipulate the BS and use it for their own misguided anti- 2nd Amendment stupidity, propaganda, of course.   Ha!   It never fails, and half of America just 'goes with the flow,'  like a dead fish.

Question:    Do you all think that the majority of all those people killed in that dance club were "ready to meet their Maker ??"   I won't say what is on MY mind....  sorry.  My mind is for myself and no body else.  The Gov't cannot take THAT from me.

Living with Islamic terror to the prophetic end
Though the US "president" refuses to call it what it is-Islamic terror-21st Century America is learning the unfortunate lesson of Islam. Islam is not compatible with a free society. Israel faces the same reality every day, living in the shadows of Islamic terrorism. The more Islam, the more slavery, crime, death and destruction. This is historic fact. Every State Department report on human rights points to the nations that violate liberty and human rights. They are those of Islamic influence. The "president" and the presumptive Democratic Party nominee for President, Hillary Clinton, both seek to import such by the hundreds of thousands. The deadly virus of Islam is here and is welcomed by certain politicians.
Islam is a beast system that attempts to devour all who assist it, all who oppose it, all who live within it. When the US "president" negotiated with the Islamic terrorist state of Iran, Iran's Islamic leadership condemned America as satan. While billions of dollars were being released to Iran for its signature on a nuclear deal, Iran was not feeding its people, but rather increasing its military development by a like amount. There has been no US "president" as friendly to Islam as the current one, yet America is under continuous threat of Islamic terrorism. Wherever there is Islam, the peaceful and law abiding are in danger. The policies and Islamic advisors of America's leadership have put our families in harms way.
Islam claims its roots in Ishmael. Genesis 16:11-12 says, "And the angel of the Lord said unto her (Hagar), Behold, you are with child, and shall bear a son, and shall call his name Ishmael...And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him." Later, Esau (son of Isaac, brother of Jacob, grandson of Abraham) married Ishmael's daughter Bashemath. Esau's lineage became the enemies of God's people along with the Ishmaelites. This heritage is what informs modern Islam as established by Mohammad, who claimed to be a direct descendent of Ishmael. Since its beginning, this has been a violence upon those who follow the one true God, YHVH.
The beast nations that attack Israel in the "latter days" are Islamic. Ezekiel 38 and 39 describe the nations that come against Israel in a colossal end time battle. Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are located in modern Turkey. Persia is modern Iran. Ethiopia is modern Sudan. Libya is Libya. All are aggressive Islamic states. The theme of Genesis 16:12 is repeated in Ezekiel 38:21, "And I will call for a sword against him (Gog) throughout all my mountains, says the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother." Islam is a death cult. It thrives on death and destruction. It plies the weak with its religion, saying "peace, peace" when there is no peace. Because of bad leadership, Americans will have to learn to live with Islamic terror to the prophetic end. This Islamic virus is an ever-present threat to the civil and law abiding.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

From a friend:     But don't take my word for it.... just read the book of ROMANS !!

our question:   No, I don't think the majority were ready to meet Jesus.  They wouldn't have been in that club if they were.  When I first heard the news that the muslim terrorist had shot up a 'gay' club my first thought was "Oh no, they hadn't accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior."  Then I thought about the Great White Throne Judgment because I had just finished studying all about it.  Those homosexual souls will have to stand before Jesus at that judgment.  My heart hurt for them.  They, hopefully not all of them, will be in Hades waiting for the judgment. 
No one is talking about this.  NO ONE is talking about what happens when people die.  All I have been hearing is that we should pray for their families, which we should do, but more than that, the homosexual community is so lost and they need our prayers too.  The only answer is Salvation through the shed blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I want everyone to be secure in their relationship with Him.  When I hear homosexuals say they are 'christian gays'  my stomach hurts.  God hates the act of homosexuality.  He said so in His Word.  These people are not saved and they are not Christian.  If I called myself a 'turnip' it doesn't mean I am one. 
No my friend, they weren't ready and the Church will carry the burden of this at the Judgment.
