The Latest Manufactured Fake Crisis

2020 August 17
by bc3b

The post office delays are the latest fake crisis the left and the media are trying to pin on President Trump.

Protesters surrounded Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s Greensboro, North Carolina, home on Sunday, one day after the far-left Shutdown D.C. held a protest at his Washington, DC, residence.

The protests follow Democrat claims last week that the Trump administration is trying to interfere with vote-by-mail efforts in the 2020 presidential election.

“This is what democracy looks like,” protesters chanted as they flooded the neighborhood and disrupted the Wyndham Championship taking place at a nearby golf course.

“We need to keep the pressure on,” protestor Jim Mencius said in a Greensboro News & Record report. “We need to make some good trouble.The president has said he wants to cripple the post office.”

As Breitbart News reported, the far-left group Shutdown D.C. descended on DeJoy’s home in Washington, DC, on Saturday.

The protest came after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), among others, last week asked the USPS inspector general to investigate ‘all recent staffing and policy changes put in place’ by Mr. DeJoy,” the New York Times reported.

Nancy Pelosi is calling the House back into session to solve the post office problem. In other news, the Postal Workers Union has endorsed Biden-Harris.

The Post Office has had problems for decades. Add to that the burden of increased package shipments as Americans increased internet shopping in recent years and its spike during the pandemic. This increase has created problems not only for the USPS, but also the once-reliable Federal Express.

Case in point: personal experience. My associate and I are contract workers. Our checks are sent every two weeks from New Jersey via Fed Ex second day air when we work from our office. When we worked from home, our employer switched to Fed Ex Ground. My check was delayed three days at a Pennsylvania and hers was delayed a similar time in a Detroit area depot. We tried Priority Mail and it was a disaster. Our checks made it from New Jersey to a regional distribution center in the Detroit suburbs in one day. They sat in the distribution center for more than a week before being delivered.

Did Donald Trump or Postmaster General Louis DeJoy travel to the Allen Park regional distribution center to delay our checks for a week? Hardly. It’s more the fault of an outdated system filled with junk mail and packages coupled with lazy, incompetent employees.

    In past elections, the greatest problem with absentee ballots has affected US service members overseas – something the dishonest media will suppress like the five-year old boy murdered in North Carolina.

    This weekend some Antifa protestestors showed up to antagonize protestors at Sturgis. It went about as well as expected.

    Personally, I wish the police would have stood back and let the altercation take its natural course.

    Another victim of the “peaceful protestors” in Portland. Will this start to wakeup some of the moderates who sit on the sidelines and continue to reflexively vote Democrat?

    Probably not.

    Maxine Waters: Trump, we’re all hearing from seniors! They need their medicine, their groceries, they need their disability & social security checks!

    Hard to believe, considering Social Security stopped sending paper checks in March 2013 … Obama removed 12,000 mailboxes in the last 5 years of his presidency.

    JR #5, there is extreme anarchist rhetoric (“kill the cops”, “burn it down”, and “the suburbs are next”) which the mainstream Dem establishment including the top of the ticket has refused to acknowledge, let alone repudiate. That, plus the call for unsustainable socialist hand-outs (reparations, medicare for all, universal basic income, etc.) is pushing more and more moderate Dems away from the party. Socialism and anarchy might play well in Portland and on college campuses, but it won’t fly with old-school Democrats who know all about the false promises of utopianism. And with each looted Nike store, hurled chunk of concrete, and burning building, more and more of these 50+ moderate Dems are reluctantly tilting toward Trump, even though they will never admit it to their friends or a pollster.

    Oh, and all that’s happening in Minneapolis could very well flip MN.

    Antifa violence is another thing CNN and the rest of the MSM buries. Just as if the NC five year old had been a black child shot point blank by a white man, imagine if the Proud Boys would have been the lead story for the next week.

    Getting back to the post office, one of its major problems is that profitable first class mail is down tremendously as people are using email and texting to communicate with friends and relatives and are paying bills on line. Meanwhile, unprofitable junk mail and package delivery has soared.

    Mailboxes vanished during Obama-Biden administration:

    But, “like kids in cages,” all negative history begins on January 20,2017. If first class mail is down drastically, doesn’t it follow that there will be far fewer mail boxes? Mass mailers must take junk mail to the post office with paperwork and have enough money in their accounts. Ebay and others don’t normally use mail boxes.

    13,

    Well most of the f’up for the post office is Congress’s fault. Last number I heard was USPO was losing $1.43 per package delivery. Any why? Because the Direct Mail Assoc. strong armed members about low balling rates. As a consequence eBay and Amazon are saving a fortune in package deliveries that require USPO to handle. (aka remote/rural)

    The rate battle was done and settled last go round during the Obama years.

    Very true. There are five FBS teams in Michigan (2 Big 10 and 3 MAC). All have had their seasons cancelled. There are no FCS teams in Michigan, but my understanding is that all but one conference have cancelled fall football. Most Division 2 and 3 teams have also been cancelled.

    Being that you are in Arizona, there will be no football for you either (PAC12)

    In many of the states where D-1 fall football is dead, so is fall high school football:

    https://www.maxpreps.com/news/qiL5GOXkFkyfJ9jwZ8wb-g/where-the-start-of-high-school-sports-stands-in-all-50-states-amid-pandemic.htm

    Michigan has moved high school football to the spring too, joining Maryland, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota in the Big 10 footprint. Look at the West Coast.

    Beside, Chicago “student athletes” have more important considerations (e.g. which colleges have the best stores nearby to loot). Miami (FL) or Ann Arbor win out over Lincoln every time.

    During the four years my daughter attended Central Michigan, 8 football players were arrested for felonies. Can you guess what they had in common?

    Maxine Waters yesterday:

    Maxine Waters @RepMaxineWaters · Aug 16
    Trump, we’re all hearing from seniors! They need their social security checks! Why are you harming us by slowing down the mail system & destroying the #USPS! Don’t you understand how important the mail system is?

    NOTE TO MAXINE:
    The last time Social Security mailed out a check was in MARCH 2013.
    The mail system IS important…and President Trump is NOT harming it in any way.
    In fact, forcing the USPS to deliver 200 MILLION ballots to everyone over 18 years old, when those people did NOT request those ballots…and then somehow secure those 200 MILLIONM when they are returned (or “harvested”) very well MIGHT destroy the system.

    I heard that the Dem convention will have pseudo-Repubs Kasich and Susan Molinari (she got rich as one of the Repub hangers-on when Dems under Franklin D Raines looted Fannie/Freddie) speaking.
    Also, AOC apparently was given a 1 minute slot to speak. I bet she uses ALL her vocab with a long timeframe like that!

    Two H. L. Mencken quotes:

    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

    The Democrat/media/Fascist cabal is cooking up manufactured “crisis” after manufactured “crisis”…the latest being that not sending out 200 MILLION ballots by mail (to people who didn’t request them), is somehow “voter suppression”. Which leads millions of Americans who don’t buy this bull$hit, and WILL defend their families, friends and country to remember THIS quote by Mencken:

    “Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”

    “The Justice Department announced Monday that a former CIA officer was arrested and charged with espionage. 67-year-old Alexander Yuk Ching Ma was arrested on Friday and charged with spying for China. According to the DOJ, Alexander Yuk Ching Ma, beginning in 2001, conspired with a relative of his, who was also a former CIA officer, to communicate top secret material to intel agents from China.

    For nearly two decades on and off Alexander Yuk Ching Ma disclosed a substantial amount of highly classified national defense information of the United States to the MSS officers.”

    Ma was a naturalized citizen from Hong Kong and joined the CIA in 1982 — He had a TOP SECRET clearance and had access to Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI). The DOJ said Ma conspired with an 85-year-old relative who was a naturalized citizen from Shanghai.

    I saw this comment at JustOneMinute
    “Still live chat on Bloomie’s channel. LOL
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TN1af8tKF9U&feature=youtu.be

    There were a couple hundred upvotes and way over a thousand downvotes LOL.
    When I clicked the link it looked like they reset the count … but Trump supporters came back:
    Total was 130 up and 970 down.
