Does Anyone Really Believe the Trump vs. USPS Hoax?

Does Anyone Really Believe the Trump vs. USPS Hoax?

“SAVE THE POST OFFICE!” – Trump

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=101&v=cj2vM2cKECc&feature=emb_logo

I’ve been off the grid for the last three days. Intentionally so. I was very busy attending a Cinderella birthday party (5 out of 5 stars, would do again).

When I popped open my laptop last night to prepare the blog for the morning I found that the Democrats and political media world had concocted what has to be THE lamest Trump attack yet — attacking the… postal service?

I get that it’s 2020, the year that will live in infamy so pretty much everything is fair game, there are no limits, and we’re stuck in a year that’s lasted a century, but this seems a stretch even for current circumstances.

This morning, I came across this gem:

But outside of Twitter and the media bubble, is anyone buying this garbage? I mean, really?

Twitter and Facebook are not even close to being representative of real life or the opinions of regular folk who care far more about putting food on the table and a roof over their head than they do the politics behind the two.

Democrats are actively trying to gank the election via mail-in ballot fiasco and the main vehicle for doing so is suffering financially. We’ve covered the mail-in ballot stuff pretty extensively. Just see here.

The USPS has been on the verge of bankruptcy for years. This is just a fact. One of the only reasons the post office is still afloat is because of the deal they struck with Amazon in 2013. As is the case with most government agencies, they provide (typically) subpar service at a premium price while private carriers simply outshine our government postal institution, in most cases.

Yet again, the USPS is facing financial woes and now it’s a conspiracy one that has at least some of the public freaked out and buying up stamps in the hopes they’ll foil Trump’s nefarious plans to tank the post. From NPR:

Thousands have taken to social media the last few days in support of the U.S. Postal Service. With the agency in financial trouble during the coronavirus crisis, Twitter users are urging others to buy stamps as a lifeline for the beleaguered agency.

Since the crisis began, the Postal Service’s business has tanked. Mail volume has decreased by nearly a third, and the agency is projecting a $13 billion shortfall for the year. As a result, the Postal Service is asking lawmakers for as much as $89 billion in cash infusions to weather the financial storm.

But President Trump is opposed. According to The Washington Postthe president threatened to veto the $2 trillion coronavirus aid package, or the CARES Act, if it provided funds to bail out the postal agency.

That upset some people, like Bill Prady, who says the U.S. Postal Service helped launch his television career.

It’s not unreasonable to suggest we keep postal funding as a separate issue from Coronavirus relief. But TRUMP IS TRYING TO RIG THE ELECTION, KILL USPS YARGH! Amiright?

We’ve covered the USPS vs. Trump hoax in detail here and here, if you’re interested in further reading.

I’m not suggesting the right is completely immune to wanting to believe what are obvious hoaxes or conspiracies. I am absolutely suggesting that this particular one is so stupid, I can’t imagine vast swaths of people actually buying into it, despite the best efforts of the the media and Democrats.

This is desperation at its worst (best?) and the ultimate case of Trump Derangement Syndrome to date.

    Yes. It’s called method acting.

    oldgoat36 in reply to Skip. | August 17, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    There are so many aspects to the actions and thoughts espoused by the left that leave me convinced many are, to some degree, insane. They shovel out so much in lies, propaganda, and distortions meant to point the finger of blame of nefarious deeds from themselves – where it originates – that it has twisted their minds.

    Logic and facts mean nothing to most of the left. The rest rely on using anything and everything to try to throw at President Trump.

    MattMusson in reply to Skip. | August 17, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    They got 3 years out of the Russia hoax. They want the USPS to be the scapegoat for the 2020 Biden loss and the new reason that Trump is ‘illigetimate’.

      notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to MattMusson. | August 17, 2020 at 10:32 pm

      The PO Union endorsed Biden.

      Time to END the USPS.

        notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital. | August 17, 2020 at 10:46 pm

        Or is that PU??????

        Finally you wrote something I agree with. There is simply no longer any reason for the USPS to exist. Everything it does can be done cheaper and better by others.

        If it is desired (for political reasons, because I can’t think of any valid ones) to continue to provide universal nationwide service at a uniform rate, i.e. to subsidize the delivery of postal services to people who choose to live in remote areas so they pay the same as if they were living in the heart of a city, the government can directly subsidize private providers for a lot less than it loses on the USPS. (Yes, the USPS doesn’t usually receive any direct funding from the government, but the fact that it doesn’t have to pay taxes while its competitors do is a massive indirect subsidy. And every so often, as it is doing now, it comes to the government for a bail-out.)

          ss396 in reply to Milhouse. | August 18, 2020 at 10:48 am

          No sir, the USPS needs to continue to exist, even as a subsidized entity. Not everyone in the world has internet access, and likely never will. There are still official correspondence that need to happen: official notices from the IRS, or SSA to name two key examples. In this age of electronic fraud, scams, and phishing, are you ready to respond to an email or phone solicitation from either of those? Additionally, there is international mail, and the ability for that to happen needs to have a USPS agency for interaction with every other nations’ mail agencies.

          Could it be run better? Sure. Should their absolute monopoly on first class mail be reexamined? Sure. But those don’t mean that it should be destroyed.

The obvious solution to the “threat” posed to balloting by any president is to remove the point of vulnerability caused by the nexus between balloting and the federal government. But the Dems are so hell-bent on mail-in voting (and possibly hoping to take advantage of this vulnerability themselves in the future) that we hear of no such fear.

It should be emphasized to the public that such a threat to mail-in balloting is an intolerable vulnerability, best replied to by in-person balloting conducted by the States, which has the advantage of requiring the unlikely collusion of several of them to derail an election. It worked rather well for over two hundred years. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    MattMusson in reply to DaveGinOly. | August 18, 2020 at 8:02 am

    When you vote locally, you should get a numbered receipt like an ATM machine. Then, after the election the board should release an Excel spreadsheet with a row for each voter (by number) and the votes that he cast. That way, you can validate your vote was tabulated correctly. And, you can see how the electorate voted. And, you can re-tally the numbers if you want to.

Ever visited the comment section at thehill.com? Or try democratic underground. The TDS is very real and very insane.
Don’t forget, wapoop also says PDJT has told 20,000 lies also. Which by my lights means wapoop will print any garbage as long as it’s anti Trump.

    oldgoat36 in reply to 4fun. | August 17, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Thing is, those “lies” which they claim President Trump said have either been jokes he’s told, or things which have been proven to be true over time. The WaPo wouldn’t know fact from fiction other than what is fed to them to spread like manure on the field.

      mailman in reply to oldgoat36. | August 18, 2020 at 4:25 am

      And none of the so called “lies” are in the same league as “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” lie. Barry took lying as a President to new heights ?

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to 4fun. | August 17, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    First off, my apologies. I was trying to click on the “Reply” button but hit the “Down Vote” thing instead. It wasn’t meant.

    Second, I used to read and comment on thehill.com a lot in the past. Then the liberal lunatics came and pretty much destroyed any rational discussion that might have occurred with their loony nonsense. Pretty soon after that I simply stopped reading or commenting on the website. Sad thing is, I haven’t missed it at all.

Yes, Kimberly, there are people stupid enough to believe this lie. They still believe that George Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin, that George Floyd was killed by the police and that Trump colluded with Russia to “steal” the 2016 election. The public has been indoctrinated to believe almost anything reported by the MSM.

The Dems have no chance to win the election with Joe Biden, if they speak the truth. They have to lie about their intentions, their agenda, their accomplishments, and all of Trump’s accomplishments. If they tell the truth, they lose. They will probably lose anyway, but they are sure to go down in flame it they do not lie.

Remember the old joke about how you can tell if a politician is lying. His lips are moving.

Lucifer Morningstar | August 17, 2020 at 9:16 pm

Does anyone actually believe this?

Why yes, every lunatic liberal democrat truly believes that Pres. Trump and Postmaster General DeJoy are actively working on destroying the USPS as a means to corrupt and throw the Nov. 2020 presidential elections to Trump.

But that’s just the ground work so that the democrats can challenge the election results in every state they lose and delay, delay, delay until the whole kit and kaboodle is thrown to the Congress to decide. And you know how that will end.

    Oh sure we’ll believe their racist chit.

    Bitcoin uses that and is hacked endlessly.

    JOHN B in reply to Neo. | August 17, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    This will be such a crooked system that the Democrats will have to hold back their most rabid vote theives – otherwise they’ll fix it that Biden wins 90% of the vote. Even a few members of the MSM might have trouble swallowing that one.

2nd Ammendment Mother | August 17, 2020 at 9:36 pm

Maybe somebody needs to hand the Biden Campaign this story from NPR (which I think is utter BS, but if this is what they want to think – far be it from me to interrupt their party):

“”As the coronavirus pandemic has upended normal balloting, more than half of voters under the age of 35 say they don’t have the resources or knowledge they need to vote by mail in November, according to a new poll.
……………………..
“The problem is we’ve never voted in a pandemic before and some of these young people have never even voted before,” said Ben Wessel, NextGen America’s executive director. “And so when we look at the information about how to print out or, do you have the ability to print out a ballot request form or do you know how to get stamps or do you even know where to find more information? We’re really understanding that we have a big job to do.””

https://www.npr.org/2020/07/30/896993401/poll-more-than-half-of-young-people-lack-resources-to-vote-by-mail

They wouldn’t be screeching this loud if they hadn’t already planned to win the election this way

    SpaceInvader in reply to murkyv. | August 17, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    It’s been reported that Podesta gamed it out and came to the conclusion that after the voter fraud by mail they would use the military to steal the election. That’s why they floated those trial balloons in the media about what if Trump won’t leave office. They wanted a vote of confidence by the military for the go ahead for their plans.

“My friend Jay asks a pertinent question. Since we have to have total mail in voting because of the ‘Rona, what other civil rights should be permitted via mail? Can we get guns via mail order again? Why should our citizens be forced to brave illness and death in order to purchase their 2nd Amendment guaranteed arms?”

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/394593/

Yes.

Without any qualifications.

Every remaining liberal friend on Facebook has posted about it.

They also all still believe in Russian collusion and insist the Mueller Report thoroughly documents it.

The medical community needs to create a TDS vaccine and cure.

Why do you think they’re wargaming civil war two in their election planning? You think that’s hyperbole? Disinformation? A head-fake?

Good luck. You think every night in blue cities is for grins and giggles? Yeah rioting is fun but this is dress rehearsal.

You better pray Trump is wargaming civil war, because Biden’s team sure is and they’re not hiding it.

Since the crisis began, the Postal Service’s business has tanked. Mail volume has decreased by nearly a third, and the agency is projecting a $13 billion shortfall for the year

There is a time-tested fix for such problems: layoffs.

USPS already tried the other time-tested fix for high operating costs, billions of dollars in automation, but that rather strangely didn’t reduce their operating costs one dollar.

I told you all in another thread this is simply a test.

If the media can convince enough people of the truth behind this nonsense, then they are armed with another device for subverting our political process through widespread and unabashed disinformation.

For some people, what they feel is more important to them than what they think. In other words, they act on their emotions so logic doesn’t unlock the door.

Lucifer Morningstar | August 17, 2020 at 10:53 pm

And here’s the first shot across the bow from the lunatic liberal democrats. A “class action” harassment lawsuit alleging Pres. Trump admitted he was deliberately slowing down the mail system.

https://www.courthousenews.com/trump-faces-class-action-after-admitting-to-mail-slowdown/

And it’s only going to get worse as the election gets closer and the democrats realize they are going to lose and lost big.

Now that jamie lee curtis is the new mailbox monitor, service should pick up.

Btw, has anyone seen the highly censored Millie Weaver documentary? It’s worth a watch to see why all these swamp retired generals and rinos are trashing Trump: he busted their money factory:

“Does anyone believe this?”

Large problem: Tens or millions of people, some alive and citizens, will be voting for the Democratic candidates. No matter what.

Twitter showed its hand by suspending The Babylon Bee for posting the following satire article.

Brilliant Trump Puts Himself On All Postage Stamps, Forcing Democrats To Push For Abolishing USPS

https://babylonbee.com/news/brilliant-trump-puts-himself-on-all-postage-stamps-forcing-democrats-to-abolish-the-usps

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Sources are reporting that Trump has dealt a killer blow in his ongoing war against his sworn enemy, the U.S. Post Office. In a move of sheer, mind-blowing brilliance, Trump directed the Post Office to put his face on every single stamp, forcing the Democrats to reverse course and abolish the institution once and for all.

The new stamp, dubbed “The Trump-Stamp,” to be used on all pieces of mail features a smiling Donald Trump, with the caption “GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER.”

Don Lemon broke the news in a tearful address to the nation last night. “Our democracy is over,” he said. “It doesn’t exist anymore. I will never send another piece of mail ever again, and neither should you or else you’re a racist.”

Antifa and BLM responded by marching on local post offices and burning them down. Enthusiastic Trump supporters quickly bought up all the stamps. They are now selling for $3,000 apiece online.

I don’t know anyone of any persuasion who will admit to believing the Democrats anymore. They know they won’t have the votes in November so they are just starting the violent part of the revolution early and linking absolutely every lie they can as justification. People are turning off.

Hopefully, by now even the Dems can’t wait for November to vote for Trump.

Here’s some information on voting by mail that a friend sent me yesterday. I don’t know whether this is true in all states/localities, but the video is really disturbing. Be afraid; be very afraid.

In the video, the narrator (a Republican woman) tells us she lives in the same house as her brother, a Democrat. She then shows the back side of the two absentee ballot envelopes.

She zooms in on the large bar codes on both ballots. Nothing to see here, unless you speak bar code (Heh.).

BUT … immediately below the bar codes there is a long alphanumeric code comprising four groups of characters followed by the voter’s name. On one ballot, one of the groups of characters was “4212R.” On the other ballot, one of the groups of characters was “4212D.”

Gee, what a coincidence — the Republican woman’s ballot had the 4212R code and the Democrat man’s ballot had the 4212R code.

Now, if ALL absentee ballots have this kind of coding, this opens the door a mile wide for UNIONIZED, left-leaning postal workers to destroy or otherwise impede ballots cast by Republicans.

Let me try to embed a link here:

    Which is exactly why I have never registered as Republican. I do ask for an R ballot in primaries, and if those League of Women Voters ladies are paying attention, they might figure it out. But I’m not worried about them, I’m more concerned about the machinations in Town Hall.

Sorry —

4212R code and the Democrat man’s ballot had the 4212D code.

I think that the Dems don’t plan to cheat Trump out of the presidency using the mail-in ballots…they want to cheat to get all the down-ticket races that are gonna be lost in the upcoming blow-out.
