Officials in Charlotte Threaten Rioters And Looters With Loss of Welfare And Food Stamps
[GP] As unrest continues in Charlotte, North Carolina, officials have issued a warning to people who loot businesses or destroy public property. Keep it up and you could lose any public benefits you receive.


According to multiple reports, city officials have announced new measures in an effort to curb the violence sweeping Charlotte since the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. Any individuals caught rioting, looting, destroying property or otherwise reacting in a violent and unlawful manner will have their government benefits permanently revoked.

According to the local affiliate WBTC, the punishment also applies to minors who might be participating in the ongoing melee. Parents of underage individuals who are captured while engaging in criminal activities related to the rioting will be held fully accountable, and could risk losing state benefits, as well as the custody of their child.

"Parents are responsible for their children. If they are allowing them to engage in lawless behaviors there will be consequences for them as parents." Charlotte City Official, Wilson Stewart, told reporters during the 30 minute press conference.

Isn’t this exactly as it should be? The business owner who has his store wrecked and looted is paying taxes which provide public benefits. Shouldn’t he or she have some recourse?

#1  Now clearly highlighted; the connection between desired urban plantation behavior and government rations and perks.

Pacification is your friend. Do not burn down the hand that feeds you. This is one of your last warnings.

#2  Any individuals caught rioting, looting, destroying property or otherwise reacting in a violent and unlawful manner will have their government benefits permanently revoked.

The theory being that, without government benefits, they'll have to work - and, if they work, they'll not have any time or energy to riot?

#3  Laid bare for all to see.

Urban white leftists use tax money taken from suburban/rural people who live far away from the urban underclass to bribe said urban underclass (who live four blocks away from the urban leftists) to leave them alone.

They'll NEVER let the EBT cards fail. Because that would entail the urban underclass going forthwith to their tony, chic, perpetual adolescent urban playgrounds in a wave of rape, murder, and plunder.

#4  70% of those detained in Charlotte are from out of state. Unless the Feds restrict it the rioters will just step across the line for their benefits.

#5  A slack hand, conflict, and poverty are tools of the oppressor. I suspect it has always been this way.

#6  70% of those detained in Charlotte are from out of state.

Something about crossing state lines to instigate insurrection used to be a prosecuted crime. However, it appears one group is above the law, but probably not a WH invitation.

Laws are for the little people taxpayers. Keep working, proles.

#8  Hard to do when they have four welfare cards.
Posted by: gorb || 09/25/2016 14:36 Comments || Top||

#9  Food Stamps and cash aid to families with dependent children are Federal programs. This will not happen. Period.

Threatening otherwise is ignorant bullsh!t and of no help to anyone.

Hillary Clinton Cancels Planned Trip To Charlotte After Mayor Begs Her To Stay Home
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton
... sometimes described as the Smartest Woman in the World and at other times as Mrs. Bill, never as Another Henry Clay ...
was forced to cancel her planned trip to Charlotte, after the Democratic mayor of the city begged her on live television to stay home.

Clinton aides announced on Friday afternoon that Hillary would visit the city on Sunday, but were forced to reverse their plans just hours later.

"After further discussion with community leaders, we have decided to postpone Sunday’s trip as to not impact the city’s resources," noted Clinton’s communications director Jennifer Palmieri in a carefully worded statement released late Friday night.

Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts, a Democrat who has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, urged the Democratic nominee to postpone her scheduled visit on Sunday in an interview on CNN. She indicated that both presidential candidates were considering a visit to Charlotte, although Clinton was the only candidate who had announced her plans.

"If there would be a way to delay those visits in terms of giving us a chance to get our city back to order and back to a state of normality that would probably be ideal," Roberts said in an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett on Friday night.

Although Donald Trump was also considering a visit to Charlotte after the first presidential debate, his campaign also abandoned their plans.

Roberts said she appreciated that the presidential candidates were concerned about the city, but said an early visit would stress the city’s resources.

"At this point we do have very stressed resources for security," she said. "They are working around the clock."

Clinton planned visit would have taken place the same day that Charlotte will be hosting an NFL football game, as the Minnesota Vikings play the Panthers. The event will likely be the focal point for additional protests.

A trip to New York leaves Egyptian MPs impressed by Donald Trump
[AlAhram] Egypt MPs who were in New York last week said they were impressed by US presidential candidate Donald Trump's views on terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood.
...but they saw Hillary Clinton as an extension of President Obama.

#1  President El-Sisi didn't like Obama and Hillary torching his country as well as the rest of the M.E.? He didn't like Hillary killing his neighbor Muammar Gaddafi and torching Libya. Hildabeest is famous for saying, "We came, we saw him, we killed him." El-Sisi didn't like Obama/Hillary selling out the Sunni M.E. to Iran and then trying to finance and abet their nuke program? No wonder he's not feeling the love of Hillary and Obama.

FBI document dump: Huma Abedin used her Yahoo! account to make it easier to print emails
[Twitchy] She sent emails to her Yahoo! account so she could print them easier. Did she ever think that the reason she couldn't print from her DoS account was because the emails shouldn't have been printed?!

#1  It doesn't matter. Our (alleged) "opposition party" will do NOTHING about it.
Posted by: Crusader || 09/25/2016 0:14 Comments || Top||

#2  And what do you propose they do about it?
The corrupt justice department will not act against her. the corrupt fbi will give her immunity.
yet it is, in your mind, the republicans who cause this problems.
without justice department cooperation, which department is under complete control by democrats, no indictment or prosecution is possible.
with the mass media press in the hands of democrats no publicity about this will reach most Americans.
any lawmaking effort by republicans relevant to this subject is subject to presidential veto and hence pointless.
Exactly what are republicans supposed to do about this?

the FBI is concerned that

#4  And what do you propose they do about it?

When someone provides a viable solution here they get banned. So don't expect a solution here. They are plenty of stories of the bad guys killing good the good guys. But going after certain bad guys who provide aid and comfort to other bad guys due to a specific citizenship gets peoples panties in a wad here.

#6  I mean, seriously, if numerous women come forward and tell the whole world how a man felt he was above repercussions so he beat and raped them (Bill Clinton) and his wife (Hillary Clinton) rewarded the father of a Muslim who shot a hundred people in Florida, what the hell do you think you are supposed to do these people. Just don't dare say anything, in the mean time via more blatant corruption Hillary becomes president and you ain't seen nothing yet until what will happen to the "depolables" during her reign of terror.

#7  Jeebus, why the hell not put it on Craig's list as a free give-away to anyone who wants the info? Traitors all of them. We ought to be having a treason trial rather than a debate/election for those responsible for this open-server policy.

The circus comes to town! Bill Clinton's ex-mistress Gennifer Flowers AGREES to attend debate after Hillary invites 'dopey' billionaire Mark Cuban to sit in the front row as her guest
"When you're born into this world, you're given a ticket to the freak show. If you're born in America you get a front row seat." - George Carlin.

Thank you, Dr. Kelly, wherever you are.

#5  Hire a Diazepam double, and have him inattentive and dozing off anywhere in the audience.

#6  Put all of Slick Willy's women in the front row--that ought to be unnerving to this rapist enabler. There wouldn't be enough seats in the entire auditorium to seat all of them. This debate is taking on the air of a reality show. Probably will push Colin kaepernick and his flag protest buddies somewhere back to the classified section.
Posted by: JohnQC || 09/25/2016 8:01 Comments || Top||

#7  Exhume Vince Foster's corpse and prop it up in a front row seat right smack-dab in front of Hillary's podium.

I don't pray very often, but I'll be down on both knees today and tomorrow praying that the Evil Witch screws up the debate so badly that it effectively ends her campaign. She belongs in federal prison, not in the White House.
