SHOCKING Reason These Muslims Were Arrested WILL APPALL TAXPAYERS
Under Obama’s reign, cheating the system became the norm.
It’s one thing to honestly need food stamps. It’s quite another to cheat the system out of millions. Yet that is exactly what happens all around the country. It’s pathetic. A program designed to combat hunger and boost nutrition for the poor, disabled, and needy is riddled with fraud.
How the Scheme Works:
Stores allow people to trade their food stamps for 40-50 cents on the dollar. They ring up a fake sale and give the food stamp recipient cash. It’s an awful way to exploit the poor. Imagine a desperate mother, unable to pay the water bill. She trades $100 worth of food stamps for $50 cash to keep the water on. Two weeks later she’s out of food stamps, Her children barely eat until the food stamps are replenished a week or so later.
Maryland is among the many states cracking down on this kind of fraud. Fourteen retailers in the Baltimore area were busted illegally exchanging food stamps to the tune of $16 million.

Mohammed Shafiq is the latest business owner sentenced. He will serve four years in prison, followed by 3 years of supervision along with $3.7 million restitution.
Is this fraud funding terrorism?
One can’t say for certain. However, many of the indicted store owners are Muslims. Along with Mohammed Shafiq, Shaheen Tasewar Hussain, Mulazam Hussain, Mahmood Hussain Shah, Muhammad Rafiq, Alia Shaheen, Mohammad Irfan, Muhammad Sarmad, and Kassem Mohammad Hafeed. Therefore, nine of the fourteen indicted are Muslim.
How many times have we joked that all terrorist attackers are named Mohammed or Hussein, Barack!?
Recently, President Trump gave a speech in which he called for Muslim leaders to help stamp out the funding of terrorism. In Saudi Arabia, Trump announced a six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council. The council is dedicated to prosecuting anyone found to finance terrorism.
“Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God.” Trump said.
Trump made it clear that he wasn’t creating a battle between faiths. Instead, he is leading the US in “pursuit of common security.”
One of the first steps in creating common security is ending this massive fraud.
As long as immigrants are able to steal money from our own government to support terrorist factions, we are lying in wait for the next attack.
In 2012 the Inspector General, Phyllis Fong, of the USDA testified about food-stamp trafficking.
“In some cases recipients exchanged food stamps for drugs, weapons and contraband. When trafficking occurs unchecked, families do not receive the intended nutritional assistance, and unscrupulous retailers profit at the expense of the American public.”
Finally the alarm bell has been sounded. Now let’s make sure we end this type of abuse of the American taxpayer. Allowing it to happen is essentially equals financing our own demise.
