The ‘Post Office Crisis’ Has Become the New ‘Russian Collusion’ for Democrats

There is no “crisis.” What there is, apparently, is a paranoid delusion that ORANGE MAN BAD is trying to “steal” the election:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democratic leaders are considering cutting short the August recess and bringing the chamber back into session to deal with the unfolding crisis at the U.S. Postal Service, according to Democratic sources.
The House could return to vote with the next two weeks, the Democratic sources suggested. The chamber is currently in recess, with no votes scheduled until the week of Sept. 14.
Pelosi and other top Democrats, including House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), discussed the possibility of returning early during an emergency leadership call Saturday afternoon.
Democrats are looking to address organizational issues at the Postal Service in the coming weeks, not to provide additional funding at this time, according to sources familiar with the discussion.
One option would be to vote on a modified version of a bill introduced by House Oversight Chair Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) earlier this week that would prohibit USPS from implementing a planned organizational overhaul that critics maintain would handicap mail-in voting.
Other top Democrats also floated addressing other issues, including expired federal unemployment benefits and voting rights. But Democratic sources said the immediate focus — at least for now — is preserving the Postal Service ahead of the election.

(Note the Democrat claim to be “preserving” the Post Office, as if Trump is actually doing something to destroy it. Delusional.)

On Friday, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) issued a scathing statement accusing President Donald Trump and Republicans of waging an “all-out assault on the Postal Service and its role in ensuring the integrity of the 2020 election.” Their statement came after Trump said he opposes a federal infusion of funds to save the flailing postal service because he doesn’t support mail-in voting.
“The President made plain that he will manipulate the operations of the Post Office to deny eligible voters the ballot in pursuit of his own re-election,” Pelosi and Schumer said. “The President’s own words confirm: he needs to cheat to win.”

The word for this is crazy.

What is being called a “crisis” is, to the extent that it exists at all, caused by the fact that Democrats refused to negotiate a new spending bill. This has resulted in a shortfall of operational funds, because the Postal Service is a money-losing operation that requires taxpayer subsidies. It’s not as if mail isn’t still being delivered, but in the paranoid minds of Democrats, this budget issue (which they in fact caused) has gotten wrapped around their frantic drive for universal mail-in voting which, of course, would mean vote fraud on a massive scale. So when they claim Trump is trying to “cheat,” what Democrats actually mean is that Trump is not cooperating with their scheme to cheat. Anyway . . .

It’s all fake news, another phony “scandal” — Russia! Russia! Russia! — manufactured by Democrats and their media enablers. Keep in mind that the reason Democrats say mail-in voting is necessary is because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Let the reader think about what the scene was like at your local polling place on Election Day 2016. My wife and I voted at an elementary-school gym. The lines weren’t long. It wasn’t crowded. So I could easily see how in-person voting could be conducted with proper “social distancing” measures, even if the pandemic continues to rage unabated for the next 11 weeks. That’s my precinct, in a rural area.

Guess where Democratic voters live? In big cities, run by Democrats, where the lines always stretch around the block on Election Day.

So, yeah, “social distancing” might be problematic for Democratic voters, but guess whose problem that is? Not mine.

Screw you, Nancy. Screw you, Chuck.

You wanted to play games with the spending bill, and this “crisis” is one consequence of your game. Choke on it, losers.
