Fox 13 News in Utah is reporting that states have been sent this letter (see above) by the USDA directing them to withhold their November payments of EBT's / SNAP funds until further notice.
Does this mean that if a deal in Congress is reached to end the government shutdown, funds will be reinstated? Or is this part of an orchestrated Reichstag Fire?
Please read Matt Bracken's essay, "When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence" to understand how bad this will be if this plan is indeed carried out.
Make sure you have enough food/water/supplies to last a while. This could get really ugly.
Keep your powder dry.
