Look Who Was Just ARRESTED After Owing $3.7 Million For Food Stamp Fraud – Trump Was RIGHT!

They should be in prison forever!

on

And as always the American Tax Payer is the one who gets the raw end of the deal!

We know all too well that when the Charlatan Barack Hussein Obama was president, millions of Americans were added to the already overburdened welfare system. But now that Donald Trump is in power it seems the system is finally starting to investigate and convict all these new Obama additions and is cracking down hard.

Mohammed Shafiq who is from Baltimore, just had his free ride come to an end. He was convicted and sentenced to four years in prison followed by three years of parole. And he was also ordered to make a restitution payment in the amount of $3.7 million. Somehow I very much doubt us tax payers will ever be seeing much of that $3.7 million.

This is one of the 14 store owners who was arrested after a lengthy investigation back in 2016 after being caught defrauding American tax payers. In all 13 of those arrested were Muslims and one was a Caucasian.

CBS Baltimore Reports:

14 Arrested In Raids Related to $16 Million Food Stamp Fraud

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — More than a dozen retail store operators in and around Baltimore have been charged in connection to a huge food stamp and wire fraud scheme.

The indictments allege the retailers received more than $16 million in federal payments for transactions in which they did not provide any food, a fraud scheme commonly known as “food stamp trafficking.”

Retailers must apply to and be approved by the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service to participate in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, which helps low income families afford nutritious foods.

In Maryland, the program provides eligible individuals with an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card, which operates like a debit card. Authorized retailers use a terminal that checks the card information and deducts the cash value of the purchase from the SNAP balance.

SNAP reimbursements are paid to retailers through electronic funds transfers. Retailers bill the government in return for providing approved food items to customers.

The indictments allege that the defendants illegally exchanged EBT benefits for cash, instead. To avoid detection, they debited the funds from the card in multiple transactions over a period of hours or days, or called a different store where the transaction was processed manually, the Department of Justice says.

As a result these transactions, they allegedly obtained more than $16,482,270 in EBT deposits for transactions in which food sales never occurred or were substantially inflated and split the proceeds with food stamp recipients.

“The food stamp program is intended to put food on the tables of needy recipients, not to put money in the pockets of greedy criminals,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “Honest storeowners work hard to earn a profit by actually selling food, and food producers and distributors also benefit. People who play by the rules deserve to know that criminals who defraud them will be held accountable.”

The defendants face a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for each count of wire fraud; a maximum of five years in prison for conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud and wire fraud; and a maximum of five years in prison for food stamp fraud.

The defendants and their stores are:

Walayat Khan, 36, of Reisterstown

Maria’s Market Place, 307 S. Broadway in Baltimore and Royals Food Market, 921 E. Patapsco Avenue in Brooklyn. From October 2013 to June 2016, Khan and Duke allegedly obtained more than $1,486,118 in payments for food sales that never occurred.

Our welfare system was created as a safety net for when people go through tough times. But sadly in most cases, it’s abused and the people who use them have a higher standard of living, and eat a lot better than the people who work for a living. It’s truly sad to see that a program which was made to help people who are going through severe hardship be used by people who are just too damn lazy to get off their asses to work or who made bad decisions in their lives. Us, the American people, are a very generous people, but the food stamp system wasn’t meant to give dead beats the ability to go out and buy luxurious overpriced brands while those of us working folk struggle paycheck to paycheck to make ends meet.

Please share if you agree the Food Stamp System needs to better investigate who they help….

BREAKING NEWS out of GEORGIA… SCUMBAG NFL Star BUSTED And It’s All On VIDEO!

Published

on

And the NFL nightmare continues!

This time another entitled NFL ball tossing ingrate, Seattle Seahawks rookie and defensive-lineman, Malik McDowell, took it upon himself to get into a bit of hot water with the law. But unfortunately for McDowell, his rude interaction with a female law enforcement officer who was attempting to arrest him for disorderly conduct was all caught on camera and made public for the whole world to see who these so-called “justice warriors” in the NFL are really about.

As seen in the above video a male police officer appears to be trying to transport McDowell to the police station for booking. The male police officer isn’t the same officer who originally arrested him though. Because as we see in the video while McDowell is being arrested he is also taunting a female peace officer who is standing nearby.

The video features a male officer—who appears to be tasked with transporting McDowell, but not the one who originally arrested him—putting handcuffs on McDowell. At the same time, McDowell is taunting a female cop standing nearby.

“Are you scared of me?” he asks her repeatedly. “Why is you a cop then?”

McDowell and the officer go back and forth about why he was arrested for disorderly conduct, and he calls her a bitch multiple times.

“Bitch, I got money. That’s why I can talk shit,” McDowell says, adding that the officers will never make as much money as he’s made in the past few months.

McDowell then apparently shouts at some passersby, “Hey, they’re trying to plant some shit on me!” which causes the officers to laugh.

“I got a lot of fucking money you broke-ass niggas,” McDowell says as they search him. “Put me in fucking jail, please, so I can bond out.”

Yup, this is what social justice warrior millionaires do. They follow the lead of a failing quarterback who was told by his Islamic girlfriend to kneel during the national anthem to call attention to himself so he wouldn’t be fired by the San Francisco Forty-Niners. And in turn, they take down the whole NFL with them. And sadly since most of these ball tossers have no idea how money works they are too damn stupid to figure out the fact that if people don’t go to the games, watch them on tv, and buy team gear they don’t get paid. They are harming their own pocketbooks but they don’t even possess the IQ to understand this fact.

The Big Lead Reports:

12 Reasons Why Everyone Hates Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick just got paid. The haters came out in droves. Why do people hate the successful quarterback? Here’s why:

1. He’s not Russell Wilson. Despite Wilson’s offseason divorce, the Seattle Seahawks QB is so much more clean cut than his rival Kaepernick! And not embroiled in scandals! And his arms aren’t covered in tattoos! And most of all, his Instagram screams “Humble Choir Boy” while Kaepernick is posing with rappers.

2. Tattoos. Kaepernick has many scary, colorful tattoos. This freaks out 82% of NFL writers over the age of 50 who prefer their QBs to have pasty, doughy arms devoid of ink. And the tats under Kaepernick’s jersey? If you see him at the pool, you better walk to the shallow end, Mark Cuban.

3. Occasionally, Kaepernick wears his hat backwards. Why would a 26-year old wear his hat backwards? That’s so unprofessional. Black, wearing a hat backwards and having visible tattoos is three strikes and Mr. Kaepernick, you’re out. When Stafford, Roethlisberger, Rodgers, Romo and Brady wear their hat backwards, it’s ironic, obviously.

4. Kaepernick is most dangerous when he scrambles. He shredded the Packers for 181 yards on the ground in a 2013 playoff game, carved up the Seahawks for 130 in a playoff game last season, and he’s dominant in the read option. NFL purists hate running QBs except for Steve Young.

5. Kaepernick wears socks that are called “Make it Rain.” Dude, do you really want your socks to give off a strip club vibe? Is that something Joe Flacco would wear?

6. The 49ers QB kisses his biceps sometimes after scoring. The ego on this kid. Usually, Andrew Luck hands the ball to the referee.

7. So what if Kaepernick has reached two straight NFC Championship games? Zero Super Bowl rings and it’s all about the ringsssss.

8. NOT CLUTCH. In 2014: Three fourth-quarter turnovers vs. Seattle in the NFC Championship game, including an interception in the end zone in the final minute. In 2013: Couldn’t complete a 4th down pass inside the 10-yard line in the final minute of the Super Bowl. Spare me the regular season wins, or the playoff road win over the Packers in 2014. Are we certain Kaepernick is ready for the blinding lights of crunch time?

9. Colin Kaepernick has a big nose, which led one hack to call him “Schnozz.” I didn’t look, but I’m sure the Digital Underground jokes were flying on twitter minutes after Kaepernick’s record-setting contract extension.

10. Kaepernick had the gall to wear a Dolphins hat once at a party. Big mistake. Huge mistake. Would Joe Montana have ever worn a Houston Oilers hat? No way.

11. He mocked Cam Newton’s Superman celebration, in a playoff game, in Carolina. What a dick.

12. Kaepernick shills for Beats. Sure, the young kids like Beats and the “I’m the Man” commercial, and Apple just bought them, making Dr. Dre a billionaire, but NFL fans prefer their QBs to sell more vanilla products. Like Wranglers, Uggs or Buicks.

And all these reasons were before he started kneeling during the national anthem!

Never in the history of the NFL has the attendance and game viewership been so low. All because of a man who decided that instead of using his strength of running the ball he wanted to throw it because it requires less work and effort on his behalf. Congratulations “Social Justice Warriors!”

Please share if you are boycotting the NFL….

BOMBSHELL! Congress ‘ROCKED’ By NEW MAJOR Scandal Announcement

Published

on

Now this is what we can call “Draining the Swamp”

An investigative reporter, Luke Rosiak, who works at The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) has now announced that Congress’ human resources scandal is about to break wide-open and had made the prediction that over a dozen members of the House of Representatives will be forced to resign in the coming days.

He followed his initial tweet with this new one:

In addition to this breaking news early last week Rosiak also broke the story that Democrat Congressman from New York Gregory Meeks was part of a settlement deal with one of his former congressional aides which he had fired after she reported being sexually assaulted at the business of a major campaign donor.

The first congressmen to go down in this #metoo movement for sexual misconduct was Michigan Democrat Congressman John Conyers, Conyers resigned after accusations against him started to gain momentum and multiple women came forward. Senator Al Franken was also accused of sexual assault by multiple women to which there is even a picture of him groping a sleeping model on a plane. Has said he would resign but has given no timeframe as to when this will be happening.

The Hill Reports:

Congress owes taxpayers answers about its harassment ‘shush’ fund

Since when are members of Congress and their staffs accused of sexual harassment allowed to hush up and pay off their accusers from a secret “shush” fund full of taxpayer dollars? Since 1995, it turns out.

Congress, we all know, chooses to exempt itself from many of the same laws it foists on the rest of us. It’s a grievance I hear regularly during my travels around the country, as grassroots activists complain about this law or that regulation. “If only Congress had to live under the same laws we do, they’d get it, and they’d change it” is a common refrain.

For years, for instance, I’ve been speaking out about the illegal special exemption of Congress from ObamaCare, which allows members and staff to avoid the financial burdens they imposed on us when they passed that terrible law. If only they had to live under the law the same way the rest of us do, without benefit of taxpayer dollars to subsidize their premiums purchased fraudulently on the D.C. small business exchange, they might be more incentivized to repeal that law.
But until recently, I did not know about the “shush fund” of Congress, a fund managed by the “Office of Compliance,” which itself was created following the 1995 enactment of the Congressional Accountability Act (CAA), the first law enacted by the first Republican House in four decades.

Ironically, the CAA was a serious attempt to bring Congress under many labor laws from which it had previously exempted itself. In fact, under the CAA, Congress applied 12 different labor laws to itself for the first time, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Federal Service Labor Management Relations Statute, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, among others.

The CAA sought to make changes in how Congress dealt with charges of sexual harassment against its members and staff, too. Prior to enactment of the law, a victim of sexual harassment by a member of Congress had virtually no legal recourse at all. With whom would such a victim lodge a complaint or seek redress?

So the CAA created the “Office of Compliance” to deal with such issues. Complainants begin the dispute resolution process with a mandatory (yes, really) course of counseling that can last up to 30 days. Only after completing the compulsory counseling may a complainant pursue mediation. That, too, can last up to 30 days. If mediation fails to resolve the issue to the complainant’s satisfaction, she or he can then go to an administrative hearing, or file a federal lawsuit.

Here’s the kicker: If the dispute is resolved in favor of the complainant (read: victim), funds for the settlement don’t come out of the offender’s personal bank account, or his or her campaign account. Instead, they come out of a secret account maintained by the Office of Compliance. It is so secret, in fact, that taxpayers don’t even know they are funding it.

According to the Washington Post, there were 235 complainants received compensation totaling $15.2 million between 1997 and 2014. That’s more than one settlement per month for 17 years and nearly $1 million per year. We, the taxpayers, have no idea on whose behalf we’ve been paying to settle these sexual harassment claims. That’s wrong.

Now, in defense of Congress, the reasoning behind this rather convoluted dispute resolution process was that there could be scurrilous political operatives trying to game the system to target political opponents with potentially career-ending sexual harassment claims. That is a reasonable concern. But in the process of establishing protections for its members, Congress inadvertently institutionalized a cover-up culture, in which the supreme end goal is to get the alleged victims to go away quietly.

The “resolution” system is unfairly rigged to protect the careers of politicians, not to protect vulnerable staffers. That the counseling sessions are mandatory reveals that the objective has little to do with helping the alleged victim, but is instead simply aimed at dissuading the alleged victim from proceeding with a complaint. Leave it to Congress to find a way to insert layers of bureaucracy and paperwork into this “resolution” process.

Various proposals are floating around the Congress now that would require mandatory sexual harassment training for members of Congress and their staffs. That’s a fine idea, and I’m all for it. But those legislative proposals should make another change to the sexual harassment dispute resolution mechanism, too.

We, the taxpayers who have been paying for more than two decades to quietly settle literally hundreds of sexual harassment claims against members of Congress and their staffs, have a right to know which members and staffers have made use of the hush money over the years. Going forward, taxpayers should have knowledge about how that fund is used.

If Congress wants to get serious about its apparent culture of abuse, it will need to address its cover-up culture. Shush funds may serve the immediate purpose of getting alleged victims to go away, but they do little to stem the tide of sexual harassment. What Congress needs — and American taxpayers deserve — is more transparency.

How dare the United States Congress use our hard earned money to shut up their own indiscretions? We as a people, especially those in the middle class, struggle enough to keep our heads above water to have politicians stealing from us to pay off women they have sexually assaulted because they are a bunch of elitist unevolved cave dwellers who can’t seem to keep it in their pants. In any other society, citizens would be gathering with pitchforks outside of the capitol building by now.

We need government accountability and we need it fast. Congressmen are there to serve us, not the other way around.

BREAKING News Out Of Virginia… Jury Gives Illegal Alien Special Treatment – THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!!

Published

on

Say what?

A jury in the newly minted blue state of Virginia saw itself forced to convict a maid for felony grand larceny after she stole $5,000 worth of rings from the home she cleaned. But since they felt bad for the pregnant 19-year-old they all did something truly unthinkable and downright foolish. The Jury foreman, Jeffery Memmott, in a statement, said all the jurors pooled together the $80 so that Sandra Mendez Ortega could pay the $60 fine and go free. Ortega is pregnant with her second child.

But on top of this whole act being outrageous, it gets even worse when you look the other side of the coin.

Of course, Lisa Copeland, who is the accuser is outraged. In a statement, she said she prayed that none of the jurors are ever in my shoes She also added that Ortega never accepted responsibility for the theft nor did she ever apologize, if she had accepted responsibility she would have no issue with this, but since she never did it’s not a good thing and since the maid makes $60 a day she is now $20 richer since the jury gave her $80 to pay her $60 fine.

Now lets sum this whole mess up shall we?

An illegal breaks the law by sneaking into our country to procreate and work for peanuts while sponging off the already overburdened taxpayers and Lisa Copeman is surprised that she stole from her? Copeman was too cheap to get a real cleaning company who is bonded and insured so she decided to employ someone whom she didn’t know to clean her house. And at the same time, the jury fell for the sob story this illegal criminal told them.

Maybe next time Ortega is in court she’ll be pregnant with her 6th anchor baby! When people in Latin America refer to us Americans as “Gringos Estupidos,” they might have a point.

Investor’s Business Daily Reports:

Sorry, But Illegal Aliens Cost The U.S. Plenty

Immigration: A center-left think tank has hailed new findings showing that illegal immigrants contribute $11.6 billion in state and local taxes nationwide. But that report really shows how little they pay compared to the rest of us.

If there’s any doubt America is importing poverty, take a look at a new study this week from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, which touts the $11.6 billion illegals pay in taxes to state and local coffers. This isn’t federal or payroll taxes, just cash paid through sales taxes, property taxes and city and state fees.

“Data show undocumented immigrants greatly contribute to our nation’s economy, not just in labor but also with tax dollars,” ITEP state tax policy director Meg Wiehe said in a statement. “With immigration policy playing a key role in state and national debates, accurate information about the tax contributions of undocumented immigrants is needed now more than ever.”

We couldn’t agree more. So let’s take a look at some actual accurate information:

With an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., that $11.6 billion comes to about $1,050 per person, which The Latin Post hails as “lots of taxes.” In fact, it’s less than the average paid by citizens in even the lowest-tax states, such as Tennessee, where the average per capita state and local tax burden is $2,805, not to mention high tax areas, like Washington, D.C., where the figure is $7,540, according to data from the Tax Foundation. Media reports point out that illegals pay about 8% of their incomes in state and local taxes, compared with 5.4% for “the 1%,” but ignore that average taxpayers, based on the Tax Foundation data, pay an average of 9.48%.

Well, sure, you might say, but once illegals get amnesty, they will contribute similar amounts as the rest of us, right? Actually, no.

Illegals have far less education than average Americans and correspondingly lower base incomes. Based on another study reported this week from two other center-left think tanks, if the U.S. handed out work permits, through a program such as Deferred Action For Parents Of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA), it would add only 10% to illegals’ incomes — meaning, an additional $3,000 per capita, which would then see a small slice taken as state and local taxes, for a grand total of just $805 million to the government. It still wouldn’t approach the average Tennessee local tax rates, cited above.

Illegal immigrants in fact absorb far more in benefits than they contribute. The Heritage Foundation in 2013 found that illegals contribute an average of $10,000 in total taxes (federal and payroll as well as local taxes) but use almost $24,000 in welfare and services, creating a net $14,000 per capita gain per illegal worker.

With benefits like that — and a president determined to shower even more on them — it’s little wonder the world’s impoverished feel the red carpet is out for them to come here illegally.

Steven A. Camarota, director of research at the Center for Immigration Studies, said Heritage understates actual welfare use by illegals by its use of the federal government’s Current Population Survey. “In a more recent study where I looked at welfare use only (not taxes or other expense) using the much more accurate Survey of Income and Program Participation, I found that 62% of households headed by illegal immigrants used at least one major welfare program,” Camarota told IBD via email.

“Bottom line, illegal immigrants have a 10th grade education on average,” he said. “In the modern American economy people with that level of education tend to make modest wages and as result pay relatively little in taxes, at the same time they tend to use a lot in public services, regardless of legal status. In the case of illegals, they often receive benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children. If you had to put it in a bumper sticker it would be: ‘there is a high cost to cheap labor.’ “
