U.S. Food Stamp Program

Many people are complaining that the Food Stamp program is being cut back and hurting many people who need food. There are Americans who are hungry, and the majority are the innocent children. They are going hungry largely due to irresponsible parents. The Food Stamp program was established to help those who are truly needy. I would daresay the largest percentage of adults on Food Stamps also smoke tobacco and drink alcohol. Not all, but a large percentage. Why should taxpayers give adults $200.00 in monthly food stamps while they spend $250.00 on cigarretes and alcohol? If one has money to smoke and drink, then we should not be paying for their habits. The U.S. government could save millions of dollars in the food stamp program if they had people sign statements at the beginning that if they buy tobacco or alcohol products they forfeit their food stamps. Then if there is any evidence they did buy tobacco or alcohol they should be prosecuted for filing a fraudulent statement to obtain U.S. government services and their food stamps should stop.

This seems like an easy and practical solution, but of course common sense makes little or no difference to politicians. Dave Gaubatz

  1. I love to read Walter E. Williams work. He is the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia. Mr. Williams wrote and excellent Forward to the “The Law” by Frederic Bastiat, it can be found online. http://www.fee.org/files/doclib/20121116_TheLaw.pdf
    This is a few quotes for some of his articles. “Here's my question: Were the nation's founders, and some of their successors, callous and indifferent to human tragedy? Or, were they stupid and couldn't find the passages in the Constitution that authorized spending "on the objects of benevolence"?
    Some people might say, "Aha! They forgot about the Constitution's general welfare clause!" Here's what James Madison said: "With respect to the two words 'general welfare,' I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."
    Thomas Jefferson explained, "Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated."
    In 1828, South Carolina Sen. William Drayton said, "If Congress can determine what constitutes the general welfare and can appropriate money for its advancement, where is the limitation to carrying into execution whatever can be effected by money?"

ISIS in Fort Walton Beach Florida

Last weekend I was invited to Fort Walton Beach, Florida to give a presentation on Islamic terrorist events not only throughout the world, but also in the military community of Fort Walton. It has always been my policy that I will not say anything negative about anyone or any organization unless I have first hand evidence to support my claim. On 8 Jan 2016, I went to the Islamic Da'wah Center of Fort Walton Beach, 6 Hollywood Blvd SW, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548. Keep in mind the term Da'wah means to spread the ideology of Islam. In essence it is missionary work. My friends in Fort Walton and the surrounding area are surrounded by ISIS members/supporters who are living, working, and spreading the very same ideology as ISIS advocates in Syria and around the world.

ISIS would be proud of the Imam of the Fort Walton Beach mosque. Worshippers are provided numerous booklets, manuals, brochures, DVD's and 500 plus page books promoting an Islamic caliphate worldwide and und…

Portrait of an American Coward (Chief Nick Willard)

Manchester NH Police Chief Nick Willard  AKA Chief Chicken Little


Patriotic Readers:  Review this article and then contact Chief Willard and respectfully ask him to stop protecting Islamic terrorist supporters at the ISNH (Islamic Society of NH) but to protect innocent men, women, and children who love America and support the U.S. Constitution.  If he does not want to protect the innocent children of Manchester, then call for his firing.


On 30 June 2017, I conducted firsthand research at the ISNH mosque.  I had two witnesses.  One went inside the mosque with me, and the other remained outside the mosque.  The intent was to determine if this mosque was advocating hate toward non Muslims, Americans, Jews, and Muslims who did not want to follow the followings of a dangerous mosque leadership.  The article below by Jim Simpson summarizes my results.


The research at the mosque was simply to determine if the worshippers and mosque leadership were advocating the dangerous ideology of Islam …

Help With Counterterrorism Research

Conducting counterterrorism research in America is expensive, time consuming and yes a CT professional exposing Islamic terrorist issues faces the hate and unethical scrutiny of the main stream media.  Thus far I have conducted research in over 290 mosques and the results have been provided to the public, media, and law enforcement.  Please Donate.  Scroll a page down to DONATE Link on right side. I cant do it without you, Respectfully, Dave G.  (All children are innocent and these angels are who Islamic terrorists target)
