Overall participation in America’s food stamp program fell to 37 million for the first time since October 2009, according to the latest statistics released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The most recent USDA data revealed that 37,911,631 people received food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in December 2018, marking the lowest level of overall participation in the nation’s food stamp program in nearly ten years. The last time overall participation in food stamps reached this level was in October 2009, when 37,672,818 people were on the government dole, according to USDA data.

It´ll go even lower when work requirements are reinstated and all illegal aliens and legal immigrants are removed from the rolls.

...that’s about 30 million too many still. But the dims are still working hard to create the permanent underclass. They’re now looking to the border for help with that.

Isn´t it wonderful that so many no longer need the help that the program offers. Maybe, in time, even more will become self sufficient.

That´s the difference between dems and Republicans. Dems count success by the numbers that have to be dependant on government. Republicans count success by the number of people that are independantly successful and no longer need government help. Over time they become far more well off than government could possibly provide for.

Last line is important.
They should have stated how many of the 37 million are immigrants and refugees. It´s sickening that the elderly get squat while those crossing the border receive so much. Most of the Latinos that crossed that border have several toddlers and pregnant again. Here, a homeless person receives about $200 a month. Applicants with multiple children get $1200 and up. They need to cap it around $500. You can buy a wedding cake with an EBT card.

Several friends over the age of 60 receive anywhere from $15-$30/month SNAP benefits. You cannot buy much with that amount of money especially when the prices of many items have gone up 20% or more. The Food Bank is another option but the food you get there will last about a week,if you are lucky.

President Donald Trump explained why he did not like the late Senator John McCain, listing reasons why on Wednesday after taking the stage at an Ohio battle tank factory. Trump asked the hundreds of gathered employees if he should talk about his ongoing feud with the deceased senator. After several of the employees shouted “Yes!” Trump continued, “I have to be honest. I never liked him much. Hasn’t been for me. I really probably never will.” Here is Trump’s list of grievances: 1) McCain helped distribute the phony Russia dossier to the FBI and the media

The illegal alien accused of murdering 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts in Brooklyn, Iowa, has been granted $3,200 in state taxpayer funds for an expert witness in the upcoming murder trial. In August 2018, Cristhian Bahena-Rivera, an illegal alien from Mexico, was charged with Tibbetts’ murder after police said he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman. Tibbetts’ body was found in a cornfield in Poweshiek County after a statewide search for her. The illegal alien lived in a region of Iowa that was surrounded by sanctuary cities, (Snip) worked on a dairy farm

Crashed jets reportedly lacked

Boeing jets in Ethiopia and Indonesia lacked two safety features in their cockpits because the company charged extra to install them. The features could have helped pilots detect erroneous readings, which some experts believe might be connected to the planes’ failures, The New York Times reports. Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, which crashed within five months of each other, were brand new but were not equipped with an angle of attack indicator or an angle of attack disagree light, the paper said.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — Ethiopian Airlines surpassed many carriers by becoming one of the first to install a simulator to teach pilots how to fly the new Boeing 737 Max 8, but the captain of the doomed Flight 302 never trained on the simulator, according to people close to the airline’s operations. The people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because Ethiopian Airlines had not authorized disclosure of the information, said the carrier had the Max 8 simulator up and running in January, two months before Flight 302 crashed.

Advisers for former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign-in-waiting are debating whether to name failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as his running mate, a Thursday report says. According to Axios, Biden aides believe adding Abrams to the ticket would send a strong signal to voters that he’s not “just another old white guy.” The outlet said Team Biden isn’t going all-in on picking the rising progressive star just yet, worrying that the move could be received as a “gimmick” and open the former Vice President up to a new line of attacks.

McCain’s Key Role in Fueling

In his 2018 book, The Restless Wave, the late Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) wondered aloud why he was sought out and given the infamous Steele dossier shortly after the 2016 presidential election. After suggesting that anyone who questioned his role in handling the political document was indulging in “conspiracy theories,” McCain offered his explanation: “The answer is too obvious for the paranoid to credit. I am known internationally to be a persistent critic of Vladimir Putin’s regime and I have been a long while.”

Facebook Might Decide You’re a Hater

AUSTIN, Tex.—Austin is the only city in America where Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could speak—as she did last week at the South by Southwest Festival—and listeners say, “She’s a little too conservative for my tastes.” That’s why it’s odd that, in my home state’s capital, this mini–San Francisco, this island of ultraliberalism, Facebook has hired several thousand “moderators” to police speech around the world. Call me old-fashioned, but I remember when liberal Democrats were First Amendment radicals.

By now most reasonable-thinking folks understand the entirety of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax was little more than a multi-billion dollar Democrat-media-Deep State scam meant to discredit the results of the 2016 Election. What the below map also shows is just how truly widespread President Trump’s America-First message is to the nation’s voters. The radical left has spent decades pushing millions into high-population density centers (cities) whereby they become almost completely dependent upon government services in order to survive. This results in more voters for radical left Democrat candidates who repeatedly promise yet more

According to Reuters, "Tuesday’s ruling only pertains to 282 leases issued in Wyoming after five sales held in 2015 and 2016.” (Tweet) This happened before we elected Donald John Trump president. The ruling was against actions by Barack Hussein Obama´s administration. President Trump inherited the legal nightmare of leases granted improperly.

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was full of posthumous praise for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The context was President Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain after a newly-released deposition showed how deeply McCain was involved in the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that has been used to attack the administration and divide the nation. Brazile, who Fox News recently hired as a contributor, began by criticizing the president for speaking ill of the dead. She then continued: “John McCain leaves a legacy. He leaves a legacy of

The battle over the admissions standards at New York City’s elite public high schools has heated up again. After having failed to change the standards last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio is back at it, this time with some backup from celebrity freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As usual, their impassioned pleas about the lack of black and Hispanic students completely ignores that it is Asian, not white, students who would bear the brunt of the proposed changes. At issue is the fact that these hyper-competitive high schools consider only a test score in deciding admissions

OLATHE, Kan.—Soon after Jim Hildenbrand arrived in Avignon Villa Homes, a community for older adults in a Kansas City suburb, the homeowner association disputed the placement of his satellite dish. It cited him for parking cars in his driveway overnight and placing a St. Francis statue in a flower bed. He was later written up for a dead cat in a window well—which Mr. Hildenbrand suspects was planted by a neighborhood enemy. Things went downhill from there. After he installed a decorative, shin-high wall around a plant bed on the side of his house,

A federal judge ruled that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing in the West. The decision late Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in the District of Columbia marks the first time the Trump administration has been held to account for the climate impact of its energy agenda, and it could have sweeping implications for the president’s plan to boost fossil fuel production across the country. Contreras concluded that Interior’s Bureau of Land Management “did not sufficiently consider climate change” when making decisions to auction

Former liberal Republican California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger ripped President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening for his “absolutely unacceptable” attacks on the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). “He was just an unbelievable person,” Schwarzenegger told the Atlantic. “So an attack on him is absolutely unacceptable if he’s alive or dead—but even twice as unacceptable since he passed away a few months ago. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever to do that. I just think it’s a shame that the president lets himself down to that kind of level.
