Liberals have repeatedly blocked efforts to prevent food stamp fraud. The Tsarnaev clan, like so many Muslim immigrants, were abusing the system in a big way and may have even financed their terror spree using EBT transfers.
A mountain of new welfare records shows numerous EBT card cash withdrawals made by the Tsarnaev family, but so far there is no information about how terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev and others may have spent the money.
The EBT receipts were handed over by the state to the House Post Audit and Oversight Committee as part of its probe into the Russian family’s $100,000-plus taxpayer-financed life in the Bay State. The committee met yesterday behind closed doors to review Medicaid and welfare awards.
The purchases show specific stores, but not the items bought. But further details could be available to investigators.
The committee’s request for financial aid records from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth — where marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was a sophomore flunking some classes and owing a reported $20,000 — was rejected, the Herald learned. Federal officials have forbidden the school from releasing any records publicly.
Rafi Ron, a former top Israeli security official and past consultant to Logan International Airport, said the welfare cash could have been enough money to help the Tsarnaev brothers build their pressure-cooker bombs that killed three and injured more than 260 at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15.
It is still unclear from the records whether any welfare cash was used to finance slain bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s journey to Dagestan from January to July 2012.
Lenin famously said that the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them. But that was when America was still capitalist. Today welfare will give them the rope for free and run an ad campaign to inform them that they can get the rope for free while providing them with an interpreter so that the rope giveaway will be culturally sensitive.
