How about them apples?

Food stamp usage rose during the Obama years, for obvious reasons.

It’s a lot easier to get elected when promising people free stuff.

Now, for the first time since October 2009, usage has hit its lowest level.

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.

How will the left attempt to spin this one? Any thoughts?

One Barack Obama was enough.

One Michelle Obama was enough.

And yet, liberals seem to forget that over 1,000 Democrat legislative seats were lost during the former president’s two terms in office.

Enter Barack, who wants a whole lot more “Barack and Michelles.”

From Washington Examiner:

He told a packed arena at Bell MTS Place how he plans to create a “university for social change” that will serve as a hub for young people in the U.S. and around the world who are skeptical of the “old institutions.”

Obama: “If we train them — if we give them skills, support, financing, media training, spotlights, then they’re the ones that are going to carry forward the solutions that we so desperately need.

Obama: “If we could form a network of those young leaders, not just in the United States, but around the world, then we got something, if we can train a million Baracks and Michelles who are running around thinking they can change the world.

Some people out there believe Michelle Obama is the only chance Democrats have to defeat President Trump in 2020 and take back the White House.

Why? Who knows?

Name recognition, maybe?

For example…

Michelle, though, doesn’t care.

She just made clear that she’s not a candidate.

From Daily Mail:

Michelle Obama has ruled out running for president at any point in the future.

Save conservative media!

Black Lives Matter Activists And Pro-Cop Group Get In Confrontation In Brooklyn

Published

on

Pro-police activists clashed with Black Lives Matter protesters over the weekend in Bay Bridge Brooklyn, which happens to be an area where a lot of law enforcement officers tend to live. Videos of the incident were plastered all over social media over Saturday and Sunday, which featured a number of brawls exploding between the “Back the Blue” group and BLM activists on Fourth Avenue and 65th Street. Things got so heated that police were required to put a stop to things. Five individuals were arrested. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Massive police presence in Bay Ridge. Bike police shove the crowd, but the protesters do not disperse,” tweeted NYC Protest Updates 2020 (@protest_nyc). One video features an officer being hit with an egg, and other videos show protesters blocking a police vehicle with an arrested BLM protester inside from moving through a crowd. However, the fracas escalated when one BLM protester’s confrontation with an NYPD officer ended with the protester being tased, handcuffed, and arrested. “The NYPD no longer enforces the law. Cops are NOT allowed to make these arrest because Mayor DeBlasio prohibits arrest & encourages attacks, calling it peaceful protests he lies. When NYPD retreats the violence will come to YOU the people. BEWARE you’ve been WARNED!,” Ed Mullins, President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, tweeted Sunday. New York City Councilman Justin Brannan who is a representative for the area spoke out against the violence on Twitter. He also announced he’ll meet with the NYPD at the 60th precinct to talk about the constant protests and the NYPD response. Things are getting so out of hand all across our great nation. People are so divided and full of hatred for one another. All of this is the result of propaganda pushed by the progressive movement who would…

Criminal Investigation Launched Into DA Who Charged Officers In Rayshard Brooks Shooting Expands

Published

on

The criminal investigation into Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, the man who is responsible for charging police officers involved in the shooting of Rayshard Brooks, is being expanded by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, as new questions come to light concerning the grand jury subpoenas his office issued in the Brooks case. Chris Carr, Georgia Attorney General, asked the GBI to look further into Howard after Carr discovered information about the subpoenas. Here’s what we know so far via The Daily Wire: Howard issued grand jury subpoenas directing the Atlanta Police Department to turn over its “open investigation regarding Garrett Rolfe and the use of force incident.” Fox 5 Atlanta reports: The subpoena required that the documents be turned over for the “Grand Jury, June/July term on the of 14th day of July.” Other grand jury subpoenas were issued for phone and surveillance camera videos. Fox 5 reported that the subpoenas were issued while the grand jury was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The issuing of grand jury subpoenas while there is no grand jury could possibly be considered “an ethical or possibly criminal issue,” according to legal professionals interviewed by Fox 5. Gable Cino, a law professor who specializes in prosecutorial misconduct, spoke with the news network, saying, “It would be a violation of criminal law to make a knowingly false statement or misrepresentation in the subpoena which is a document that has been issued.” Howard is no stranger to controversy and possible corruption. The GBI had already launched an investigation into the district attorney earlier this year concerning a “mysterious salary supplement negotiated between Howard and then Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.” The negotiation directed a whopping $250,000 over a three-year period into a non-profit organization that was headed up by Howard’s office. Of that cash, Howard…
