You knew we weren’t going to get through this election without some cockamamie democrat conspiracy theory, right? In 2016 it was Russia, Russia, Russia. Today democrats are going postal.

“To watch this postmaster general destroy the postal service under Trump’s direction and to watch Mitch McConnell do nothing to try to stop that, and by the way, or anybody in the Republican senator caucus stop him other than just give lip service, is disgusting,” Tester declared. “I’m going to tell you if these guys have their way, they will destroy the postal service. They’ll do it because they don’t want people to vote, which is bad enough. But in the process, it’s going to hurt rural America in a big, big way and hurt rural states like Montana in a big, big way. And that’s why we’ve tried to point out to folks all around the state of Montana and the country that the postal service is important. And that we ought to make sure the postal service is around for this election and for a long time after this election. And to see what postmaster DeJoy has done is absolutely disgusting. And certainly not the right direction this country needs to be going in.”

Tester was never the sharpest tool in the shed. But he wasn’t the only one. The King of the Climate Con Men weighed in

Well, yes we have. In 2016, to be exact, when Rex’s photo was taken

Thieves raiding Valley mailboxes prompt Postal Service to take action

Turns out that fishing, or stealing mail, has become so common that postal officials have been retrofitting boxes around the San Fernando Valley and other areas to make them more tamper proof, said Richard J. Maher, spokesman for Post Office operations in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

No one was bothered about that in 2016. Similarly, no one was bothered when obama said this in 2009:

Trump is stealing mail boxes, say democrats!

Uh sorry, no


This from the USPS itself- in 2016!

Mail collection boxes are practically as American as apple pie. They also seem to be disappearing as quickly as mom’s homemade apple pie.

Nationally, the number of collection boxes declined by more than 12,000 in the past 5 years. Some customers have complained the U.S. Postal Service has gone too far and removed too many collection boxes in neighborhoods. They’ve also questioned whether this effort is saving USPS money in the long run.

It’s a tough balancing act for the Postal Service. Some collection boxes are barely used and are expensive to maintain. On the other hand, mail collection boxes are a visible representation of the Postal Service to the American public, and their disappearance has been noted. They also are reliable, secure, and convenient receptacles for mail.

As part of its efforts to keep its collection infrastructure proportionate to customers’ needs at a reasonable cost, the Postal Service has eliminated underused collection boxes that on average receive fewer than 25 pieces a day; it has also added collection boxes where they are convenient for customers.

Our recent audit report looked at the Postal Service’s collection box removal process in the Eastern Area and found that it was not effective. While the area and its 10 districts have procedures for removing and relocating collection boxes, they were not consistently followed.

For the record, Trump is not “attacking” the USPS or starving it. Byron York:

The Postal Service has lost money for a very long time. In fiscal year 2019, it had operating revenues of $71.1 billion and operating expenses of $79.9 billion, leaving it with a deficit of $8.8 billion. At the moment, Postal Service officials have told Congress, it has about $14 billion in cash on hand, putting it on the road to fiscal insolvency (without further aid) in late 2021.

In the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or CARES Act, the $2 trillion relief measure passed in March, Congress gave the Postal Service a $10 billion borrowing authority. After the bill became law, there were negotiations between the Postal Service and the Treasury Department on the terms of the borrowing; a deal was announced in July. The ability to borrow $10 billion, the postmaster general said, would “delay the approaching liquidity crisis.”

That was all the aid for the Postal Service in the CARES Act. Completely separately, the bill also gave $400 million to something called the Election Assistance Commission for distribution to states to “prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, domestically or internationally, for the 2020 federal election cycle.”

In May the House passed the so-called “Heroes Act”

The House HEROES Act would give $25 billion to the Postal Service in what is essentially a bailout. The bill mentions nothing about helping the Postal Service handle the upcoming election or any other election. Indeed, the only stipulation at all placed on the $25 billion is that the Postal Service, “during the coronavirus emergency, shall prioritize the purchase of, and make available to all Postal Service employees and facilities, personal protective equipment, including gloves, masks, and sanitizers, and shall conduct additional cleaning and sanitizing of Postal Service facilities and delivery vehicles.” If the House Democrats who wrote and passed the bill intended the money to be spent specifically for elections, they did not say so in the text of the legislation.

The notion that Trump is not funding the USPS is not true. The Trump administration agreed on July 29 to loan the USPS “$10 billion in emergency coronavirus relief funding,” The Washington Post reported, adding that the money is “a crucial injection of cash that postal officials say will keep the debt-laden agency solvent for at least another year.” In exchange for the money, USPS will provide the Treasury Department “copies of its 10 largest ‘negotiated service agreements,’ or contracts with high-volume third-party shippers such as Amazon, FedEx and UPS.” The goal, Treasury Department Sec. Steve Mnuchin explained, is “to fulfill the President’s goal of establishing a sustainable business model under which USPS can continue to provide necessary mail service for all Americans, without shifting costs to taxpayers.”

Read the whole thing for the rest of the left wing lies.

In short, dems are full of sh*t as usual and are looking to create the next Russian collusion hoax.
