Food Stamp Crash And Martial Law

The downfall of the EBT system will be the downfall of civility across America. Thanks to Obama's disastrous economic policies, nearly 50 million Americans are now on food stamps, and the program is on track to double by the time Obama leaves office.

Obama will go down in history as the only president to have doubled the national debt and the food stamp program at the same time.


As the Wal-Mart ransacking demonstrates, people will empty the shelves and loot if they think they can get away with it. We just saw it happen in an experimental government pilot show. They blamed it on a system glitch, a system that they own and control.


Can we expect more "orchestrated" glitches, failures or defaults?

 

Get informed. Prepare for another EBT debit card crash - coming soon. There are five primary ways the EBT card system can go down. Some are intentional, some are accidental. But either way, the result is the same: 50 million people panicking and desperately trying to figure out where their next meal will come from.

#1) Computer Code Failure?

The EBT card glitch that just happened was due to an (intentional) failed computer code update that cratered parts of the system. They were able to recover the system in just a few hours, but the ransacking had already begun in Louisiana and could have quickly spread if things hadn't been reversed.

As the disastrous launch of Healthcare.gov has vividly demonstrated, government IT programs are quite capable of crashing and burning, even if over half a billion dollars has been plowed into them.

The EBT card system, however, has the advantage of being primarily administered by
the Xerox Corporation. However, if the project is taken away from Xerox and handed over to the Healthcare.gov, then expect disastrous failures to begin appearing.

#2) Power Grid Failure

All EBT card systems depend on the power grid to function. If the power grid fails, EBT cards become useless.

Power grid failures can be caused by all sorts of events far outside the control of the U.S. government (or Xerox, for that matter). A solar flare could cause a powerful EMP spike that blows out the tens of thousands of transformers currently serving the power grid. That would take the grid offline for a year or more.

EMP weapons can also produce a disastrous effect, and North Korea, a nuclear-capable nation, has already threatened to launch a high-altitude ballistic missile with the intention of detonating it high above North America, causing an EMP spike across much of the nation.

Power grids can also fail due to sabotage, incompetent power companies, acts of war, government-forced shutdowns, natural disasters and other causes. To think that the civility of every U.S. city now depends almost entirely on a fully-functioning power grid is a frightening thought.

#3) Government Default?

If the EBT system isn't crashed by technical failures or a failed power grid, sooner or later it will be abandoned as the U.S. government goes into financial default.

This outcome is unavoidable but the timetable is very difficult to predict (it could be weeks, months or years). Anyone who can do basic math recognizes the inevitable financial default for the U.S. government. That's because:

• Government "revenue" through taxation is just over $2 trillion per year.

• Government debt on the books right now is approaching $17 trillion, or roughly 800% more than the government's annual income. This would be equivalent to a person making $50K per year owing $400,000 on his credit cards. See real-time debt figures at USdebtclock.org.

• Government's "unfunded liabilities" (i.e. promises to pay social security, federal retirement pensions, Medicare, etc.) are over $125 trillion. Nobody wants to talk about this number because it spells the total financial doom of the United States of America. This is not a popular topic among denialists who kid themselves into thinking the U.S. empire will never fall.

In summary, a government that takes in about $2 trillion per year actually owes over $140 trillion in debts and obligations, meaning that if the government stopped spending ALL money right now -- that is, it permanently shut down and stopped operating -- it would take roughly 70 years of taxes just to pay off its current debts.

This is equivalent to someone making $50K per year who owes $3.5 million on his credit cards.

It is abundantly obvious that the U.S. government will, sooner or later, collapse into financial default. When that day comes, the EBT system will become worthless for one of two reasons. Either A) The system will be taken offline because there's nothing left to fund it, or B) The system will be funded with hyperinflated currency that are suddenly worthless in the marketplace due to rapid price inflation. (Classic price hyperinflation combined with rapid currency devaluation.)

But just as importantly, all federal financial obligations will be null and void in such a scenario, including all federal pensions, health care plans, social security payments veterans' benefits and so on. All of this can (and will) collapse. This is not even a difficult prediction. It is an inevitability. As sure as the sun comes up, the U.S. government will collapse into financial default sooner or later.

The social chaos that follows such a collapse will be immense. About half the U.S. population depends in one way or another on government programs, pensions, contracts or other payouts. The day all those become null and void is the day you don't want to be caught in the downtown of your city.

#4) Hacker sabotage?

It is possible that hackers might be able to sabotage the EBT card system. Cyber warfare is very real, and China in particular is advancing its technical skills in this fast-expanding realm of warfare.

From an enemy's point of view, crashing the EBT system would be a tactically efficient way to place a devastating social, economic and law enforcement strain on the nation. It might even serve as the opening salvo to follow-up cyber attacks on water treatment facilities and nuclear power plants.

Imagine waking up one day and discovering the food stamp system has crashed, the municipal water supply doesn't work and your local nuclear power plant is leaking radiation. That's the kind of scenario an enemy nation armed with hackers could unleash.

#5) Government False Flag?

The White House could simply order the EBT system to be shut down in exactly the same way Obama recently ordered national parks to be shut down (as part of a contrived, staged federal shutdown theater operation).

What would be the point of such an action? To create social chaos, obviously, from which government would first blame its enemies for the "attack" and then declare martial law to seize control of all power, including control of the internet, all farms and food, all news broadcast organizations, firearms and more. The executive orders have already been put into place for the federal government to seize all private assets in an emergency.

This is classic Orwellian social control, but it's also a tried-and-true tactic used by governments throughout the history of the world. How do you suppose the NSA got the funding to build its massive surveillance system that now spies on all Americans' phone calls, emails and social media activities? It was authorized by the Patriot Act. And how do you think consensus was engineered for the Patriot Act in the first place? The 9/11 false flag.

If Obama gets into real trouble with a possible impeachment over the next few years, watch for a staged EBT card crash (or some other disastrous event) to reassert federal power. Crisis is the lifeblood of dictatorial government, and where a sufficient crisis cannot be found, it can always be contrived.

This is why America needs decentralized food security (home gardens!)

A nation of people dependent on the government is a weak nation. A strong nation would reflect the idea of food redundancy (also called "food security"), where most people have their own independent resourcefulness to feed themselves and their families. This can be accomplished through a combination of home gardening, supporting local farming co-ops and CSA's, storing food for preparedness, etc.

A nation of people who cannot grow at least a part of their own diet is a nation with a deep strategic vulnerability that can be exploited by anyone who wants to cause widespread social chaos. Obama's ongoing attacks on raw milk farmers, home gardens and other self-sustaining food production is actually contributing to that strategic vulnerability by destroying local food redundancy.

Today, Obama encourages Americans to enroll in the federal food stamp program and thereby surrender food security while becoming slaves to a system whose failure is inevitable.
