President Trump Uncovers Major Welfare Scandal Costing Taxpayers $4B

Published

on

It looks like a huge welfare scandal may have been uncovered. It appears as though $4 billion was wasted on improper food stamp payments to people receiving benefits as part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). So what some people want to know is who got all of our tax dollars? It’s being reported that some of the incorrect payments were underpayments while some were overpayments. This problem means that those who received less than they were supposed to were probably complaining to get more. It also means that anyone who was overpaid probably had spent the extra funding as fast as possible, because you know people probably weren’t turning it back in or anything like that. With all the people gaming the system, there’s very little chance that a majority of those who received extra funds by accident were doing much of anything that involved honesty.

For those who received less than they were supposed to, there are people who want to know if that money was sent as part of the accidental overpayments or if it was skimmed off the top somewhere. What happened to it? The reports below by Breitbart suggest that a lot of the errors were at the state level rather than the Federal level. This is being written off as human error, but what does that really mean? Were people stealing the money or just making a mistake? If they made mistakes, then that’s surely a lot of mistakes costing taxpayers nearly $4 billion in cold hard cash. The darn working class gets ripped off again!

Breitbart reported: “The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) spent a total of $4 billion on improper food stamp payments to those receiving benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the USDA confirmed with Breitbart News on Friday.
The USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service announced this week that improper payments made up 6.3 percent of SNAP money in the fiscal year (FY) 2017—the latest data available from the agency.

Breitbart News analyzed the USDA’s data on food stamp spending and found that $4,007,026,532 of the $63,603,595,754 the agency spent on SNAP in FY 2017 went to improper payments.

The USDA told Breitbart News that “it is important to note that improper payments include both overpayments and underpayments,” meaning that households on SNAP that received less than what they were supposed to receive for the month are also included in the percentage rate.

Brandon Lipps, the Acting Deputy Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services at the agency, said that most improper payments are due to “human errors”—either because of state agencies miscalculating benefits or benefit recipients giving state agencies the wrong information.

The USDA said that state agencies cause about 60 percent of these errors while the remaining 40 percent is due to benefit recipients not providing the proper information about their income, place of residence, and other necessary details the agency needs to provide them the right amount in benefits.

The national percentage rate is an average of state agencies’ accuracy in paying the correct amount in SNAP benefits to food stamp recipients and does not always reflect fraud from food stamp users, according to the USDA.

The USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service said that states with high payment error rates could be labeled “a liability,” and have to “owe money to the federal government.” Out of all 50 states, 14 states are in “first-year liability” status, meaning they had a poor accuracy rate for one year and could face financial penalties if they have a “poor error” rate in the next year.

The state with the highest payment error rate, Delaware, had a 13.95 percent error rate. Rhode Island came in second with an 11.24 percent payment error rate, and Michigan took third with a payment error rate of 11.13 percent, according to the USDA data.

The USDA notes that the federal government offers “liability” states that owe money to the government to use 50 percent of what they owe on state-funded programs aimed at improving how food stamps are distributed. The federal government holds the other 50 percent as insurance in case the state becomes a “liability” for a third year in a row.

“Nutrition assistance programs work best when federal and state partners work together,” Lipps said.

The agency noted that this is the first time in three years the Food and Nutrition Service has released data on improper payments. The last time the agency released this data was for FY 2014 when improper payments consisted of 3.66 percent of SNAP’s budget—or $2.6 billion.”

Now what are they going to do to fix this? Will they investigate every source of the mistakes? Will people be forced to pay the money back? Will innocent people lose their welfare and people who rob the system get away with more crimes?

The welfare system is a mess and Trump should fix that right after he fixes the immigration policies.

Judge Just Opened the FLOODGATES For Illegals To Sway Midterm Vote – Too Late Now!

Published

It’s appalling that this judge is allowed to do this? None of this should be allowed. Amazing how desperate a political party will get. Lie, cheat and steal is the only way for them.

When are these people going to serve time for illegal voting?

From The Gateway Pundit:

A New Hampshire activist judge on Monday put a temporary injunction on a Republican-backed law requiring new voters to show proof of residency when they register.

The judge says requiring proof of residency would lengthen lines and make it harder for students, disabled voters and others to cast their votes.

“Where the law threatens to disenfranchise an individual’s right to vote, the only viable remedy is to enjoin its enforcement,” Judge Kenneth C. Brown wrote in his decision.

The judge also said the registration form is too complicated for people to understand.

Reuters reported:

The temporary injunction against the Republican-backed law comes two weeks before U.S. Congressional elections that will determine whether opposition Democrats or U.S. President Donald Trump’s Republicans retain full control of the federal government’s legislative branch.

The measure, which passed largely along party lines and went into effect last year, required those seeking to register within 30 days of an election to present documents proving that they live in the area where they intend to vote. Without such proof, they must agree to either send it in within 10 days or the state will seek to verify their domicile.
The law does not require proof of address when voting.

The legislation is the subject of a lawsuit filed by League of Women Voters of New Hampshire and other groups, who said it would disenfranchise numerous groups including students, the disabled and homeless voters. The measure will be put on hold while the merits of the case are decided.

New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, a Democrat, welcomed the ruling.

“This law undermines our state’s reputation for holding free and fair elections, and it hurts our democracy,” she said in a statement.

The New Hampshire Associate Attorney General said through a spox that the state is reviewing the court order, according to Reuters.

New Hampshire has a long history of voter fraud and everyone who lives there knows this to be true.

In February of 2017, Project Veritas undercover journalists caught election officials in Nashua, New Hampshire welcoming out of state voters with open arms.
N.H. Election worker: “If you want to vote today, you might want to tell them that you’re staying with a friend and you’re here indefinitely which sounds like it’s true.”

P.V. Journalist: “Ok, got you. It’s not 100% true. But I understand.”

N.H. Election worker: “Right, but you’re here indefinitely and your address is at your friends house and then you would be able to vote.”

The Washington Times reported last year that vote fraud may have tipped New Hampshire against Trump since it was such a tight race:

More than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle.

Many Americans Should Prepare For Arrest Before Midterms As Dems Make Way For Invaders

Published

This is nothing but an invasion and must be stopped now!

A man with dual-citizenship in Mexico and the United States was arrested as he took part in the migrant caravan. He helped organize one earlier this year, also.

If other American citizens are helping this caravan or future ones, they could also be arrested by Mexican authorities.

From Conservative Daily Post:

If it weren’t abundantly clear that the migrant caravan was really an organized invasion of the United States, the fact that an ‘immigrant activist’ who was involved in the last illegal incursion was arrested in Mexico for organizing the ‘movement’ should remove all doubt.

Stop The Facebook Purge of Triple Amputee War Hero’s Pages! He Gave 3 Limbs For our Rights And they Stole It All From Him! Help this Hero Take it To Congress –> Fight4FreeSpeech!

Irineo Mujica, who helped organize the last batch of invaders, was arrested Thursday in Ciudad Hidalgo, after the caravan illegally crossed into Mexico from Tecun Umam, Guatemala.

No one can deny that these invaders, mostly military age men, are criminal lawbreakers, but somehow, he’s being labeled a ‘humanitarian.’

Many people ask if it’s ‘humanitarian’ to march people across Central America, encourage them to break every country’s law, and watch as they are stirred into an ignorant frenzy, burning U.S. flags with swastikas on them?

Perhaps for liberals, that is the definition?

AZ Central slanted the fact that a man with dual citizenship was ‘roughly’ pulled into the van of Mexican authorities after plucked him from the migrant group.

Mujica was not involved in organizing the most recent caravan, claimed another instigator, Alex Mensing, a coordinator with Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group that organized the previous invasion.

“He was not involved in organizing the beginnings of the caravan,” Mensing claimed, saying that Mujica was helping organize ‘humanitarian assistance.’

The instigators claim the group wanted to “welcome a large wave of migrants,” mostly from Honduras, preparing to cross over into Mexico.

Of course, the ‘crossing’ was completely illegal, but that is not mentioned.

“They were having a peaceful march,” Mensing said.

Mexican federal police and immigration officers “broke up the group and went straight for Irineo,” Mensing said.

The article stated, “Mujica was jailed and has been charged with obstructing authorities, according to information distributed to media outlets on WhatsApp, a messaging app.

Mujica was released midday Saturday, Mensing said, and must post a 10,000 peso bond, equivalent to about $520.

He also forfeited his documents, and was ordered not to leave Tapachula until his case is resolved, Mensing said.”

The president has condemned the illegal invasion, and warned he would shut down the Southern border if Mexico cannot stop the incursion.

President Trump has also threatened to withhold billions of dollars in U.S. aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, unless action is taken.

Mexico sent aircraft filled with officers to intercept the illegal invasion force, but with so many liberals helping them, most people agree that this group, being used as pawns by the political left, will reach the border.

It will be up to President Trump to stop them from pouring into the country and American voters to usher in a Congress that will support him.
