Democrats and media have been pushing a crazy conspiracy that President Donald Trump wants to defund the USPS in order to steal the election.
I wrote about it here and here.
Now the USPS already has been funded for the year, so this is just illogical. What’s really going on is that Democrats want there to be additional new monies to go to the USPS in order to fund universal mail in voting in a massive change to the way the election would be handled, creating a nightmare.
If you can go to the grocery store, you can go vote. Even Dr. Anthony Fauci said there is no reason people can’t vote in November.
But when Trump wouldn’t accede to what they wanted, Democrats began pushing this crazy theory in order to claim that, by proceeding normally, Trump was somehow trying to suppress the vote.
On Friday, even Barack Obama and Joe Biden promoted the conspiracy, with Obama out and out claiming that Trump was trying to suppress the vote by attacking the Post Office and Joe Biden pushed the claim that mailboxes were mysteriously disappearing.
Everyone depends on the USPS. Seniors for their Social Security, veterans for their prescriptions, small businesses trying to keep their doors open. They can’t be collateral damage for an administration more concerned with suppressing the vote than suppressing a virus.

How dare the USPS replace old mail boxes with new mail boxes!
The explanation — they’re replacing old mailboxes with new ones.

Apparently the Obama administration was doing a lot of suppressing the vote when they were in office.
OK, you want a story about mailboxes being removed? I’ll give you a story about mailboxes being removed!!
Fiscal 2016 report, during the OBAMA administration: “…about 14,000 boxes removed over the past five years…”

Democrats are literally trying to undermine the confidence in the election. Again. After spending that last three and a half years pushing other conspiracy theories.
So now that this conspiracy has been endorsed by both Obama and Biden, guess what’s happening today?
The people complaining that Trump is somehow harassing the Post Office are out in front of the home of the Postmaster General, harassing him. You couldn’t write a better script as to how illogical these folks are.
Not to mention, it just shows what an arm of the Democrats these protesters are. Democrats promote the conspiracy, suddenly protesters appear from Shut Down D.C., folks who also been involved in BLM and other protest actions. Funny how that works, right? It’s literally the left trying to intimidate a postal official to comply with what they want. But it’s Trump harassing the USPS?
They went to DeJoy’s house in Washington D.C. to stage a “noise demonstration,” translation: annoy him and his neighbors.

#HappeningNow This is the early Saturday morning protest happening in DC’s Kalorama neighborhood. A tweet organizing the protest reads: “@ShutDown_DC will wake up Postmaster General (and Trump donor) Louis DeJoy at his Kalorama condo.”@USPS @fox5dc pic.twitter.com/3jAPRyTg6R

Harassing people in their homes is a vile practice. But this is what Democrats are endorsing and doing. By the way, that’s also Obama’s neighborhood, so they may have woken him up as well.
Folks on the right mocked the protest.

So they want to take a system that already has longstanding problems, a system that many of these people likely rarely use and overload it with mail in voting. Then when the inevitable nightmare that would happen with that occurs, with late ballots, missing ballots and questionable ballots, use it to claim Trump undermined the election? How about no, straight up? We still don’t know some of the results from the June primary in some places. Come December, would the electors be able to know the results if they did this?
It’s a ridiculous thought and totally unnecessary.
If these folks can protest DeJoy at his home, why can’t they go and vote at the polls?
