This ‘Natural News‘ article is newsworthy if one wants to keep abreast of the US internal collapse. Sad really [understatement], because such a state should never have developed. Only because of absolute greed by the bankers and the bribed politicians, the insane military expenditure based on lies, and the extreme lack of respect for their constitution and concern for their own people.

The only possible end result of a disastrous collapse that was foreseen more than 20 years ago. Strangely, most people cannot see it even now!  The government can, however, see this disaster enfolding before their very eyes and have financed extensive methods of coping with the probable extreme civil unrest that could ensue.

This is very serious stuff, difficult to comprehend, easy to deny as “conspiracy theory”, but the writing is on the wall, so to speak. Unbelievable, but true!  Be afraid!

(NaturalNews) I’ve often said that 72 hours after EBT cards stop
working, every U.S. city will collapse into chaos. In case you’re not familiar with the term, EBT cards are “digital food stamps.” Nearly 50 million Americans are right now using EBT cards which are automatically refilled each month with welfare money the government doesn’t have, increasing the national debt.

Under Obama, food stamp enrollees have exploded. The annual usage statistics for food stamps are found here, but you can’t see them because under the Obama administration’s contrived “shutdown theater,” the USDA.gov website has been taken offline.  Note, of course, that the food stamp program itself is still online (most of the time), thereby proving there really isn’t a “government shutdown” as claimed by Obama.

If you really want to see the data, you have to go to a private website like this one that shows the annual food stamp enrollment from 1975 to 2012:

There, you can clearly see the explosion of food stamps under Obama, who has more than doubled the number of Americans on the program. That’s considered “economic growth” by democrats, by the way: the more people who subsist on government, the better the economy.

EBT system craters across 17 states

Today, the EBT system crashed hard, causing food stamp beneficiaries across 17 states to be unable to buy their cupcakes, donuts, diet sodas and other junk foods that keep them diseased and obese. (Yes, food stamp money is primarily used buy processed junk food.)

“While the system is now up and running, beneficiaries in the 17 affected states continue to experience connectivity issues to access their benefits,” stated a food stamp official in an AP story. The story goes on to say, “Typically when the cards aren’t working retailers can call a backup phone number to find out how much money a customer has available in their account. But that information also was unavailable because of the outage, so customers weren’t able to use their cards.”

The feds said this was due to a “system update,” but this is of course a lie. Then again, every computer system in government that crashes — including the Healthcare.gov website — is now said to be “fully functioning” as if everybody in government is tripped out on acid.

The IT backbone of the U.S. federal empire is unraveling

Today’s failure of the EBT card system is yet more evidence that the U.S. empire is rapidly falling apart. The disastrous launch of Healthcare.gov proved yet again that the Obama  administration is utterly incapable of competently managing a simple R&D development project. And rather than trying to help Americans become more independent and self-reliant,
Obama has worked hard to put as many people on social welfare programs as possible, vastly expanding the role of government to the point where millions of Americans no longer have any concept of having a job or supporting themselves.

As an example of this, AP quotes a cashier named Eliza Shook who said, “It’s been terrible. It’s just been some angry folks. That’s what a lot of folks depend on.” And that’s true. Without EBT cards, millions of Americans have no way to feed  themselves. They depend entirely on government just to put food on the table. So when that government fails them, they panic.

This is why I have long held that the day America collapses into chaos is the day when EBT cards go offline and stay offline for 72 hours. Technically, that’s three days, of course, but you get my point.

The day the U.S. government collapses in default is fast approaching

Because an exponential rise in debt cannot be sustained, at some point the U.S. government will simply collapse into financial default. Soon after, Martial Law will have to be declared in every major U.S. city to quell the riots. Imagine 50 million Americans going hungry and realizing their welfare food credits aren’t going to be available anymore and you begin to get an idea of why cities will be nearly impossible to survive when the chaos hits.

The impending failure of the federal government is now obvious to everyone. Even Ron Paul is now openly talking about the coming collapse of the U.S. empire, mirroring the overnight collapse of the Soviet empire in 1991, where that nation broke into twelve independent republics.

Many people now believe the U.S. is headed for a similar outcome, and that such an outcome can happen virtually overnight. The crash of EBT cards could be the tumbling domino that sets this into action. Nearly every state already has a secessionist movement calling for independence, and
the Tenth Amendment Center is leading the charge on state nullification of federal tyranny. Groups like the Oath Keepers are ready to step in and help establish local law and order in the short-term chaos that would follow a dissolution of the U.S. empire.

Today, all that is left of America is a deeply-indebted welfare state run by a corrupt cabal of tyrants who have no moral authority, no faith of the People and no solutions. America has devolved into a corrupt, bankrupt, incompetent government tyranny headed for imminent collapse.

One Response to Food stamp recipients panic as federal EBT system crashes; government IT systems rapidly unraveling

    Thanks, Ken, for the graph showing the declining standard of living for welfare recipients in this country.

    Selfishness, greed, self-centeredness are at the root of our problem.

    FEAR of nuclear annihilation caused tyrannical governments to develop from ashes of the Second World War, and that deceptive New World Order seems to be collapsing world-wide.

    I regret that I was so slow to see what was happening.

    With kind regards,
    Oliver K. Manuel
