House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested members could be brought back from August recess to address issues regarding the U.S. Postal Service, while urging Democrats to appear at their local post offices amid the battle to protect mail-in ballots for the 2020 presidential election.
Pelosi, D-Calif., on Sunday said the post office has become “Election Central” thanks to the coronavirus pandemic even as President Trump and Republicans have warned for months that universal mail-in ballots would cause widespread voter fraud in the election.
“Alarmingly, across the nation, we see the devastating effects of the President’s campaign to sabotage the election by manipulating the Postal Service to disenfranchise voters,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi went on to slam Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, calling him a “top Trump mega-donor” who has “proven a complicit crony as he continues to push forward sweeping new operational changes that degrade postal service, delay the mail, and – according to the Postal Service itself – threaten to deny the ability of eligible Americans to cast their votes through the mail in the upcoming elections in a timely fashion.”
“These delays also threaten the health and economic security of the American people by delaying delivery of life-saving medicines and payments,” Pelosi said. “Lives, livelihoods and the life of our American Democracy are under threat from the President.”
She added: “That is why I am calling upon the House to return to session later this week to vote on Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Maloney’s ‘Delivering for America Act,’ which prohibits the Postal Service from implementing any changes to operations or level of service it had in place on January 1, 2020.”
Pelosi also said in an effort “to save the Postal Service,” that members should “participate in a Day of Action on Tuesday by appearing at a Post Office in their districts for a press event.”
“In a time of a pandemic, the Postal Service is Election Central,” Pelosi said. “Americans should not have to choose between their health and their vote.”
A senior Democratic aide told Fox News that Pelosi could have members return to Capitol Hill from August recess on Friday, and to be ready for deliberations on legislation for the USPS on Saturday—the weekend in between the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention.
Pelosi’s comments come after she, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., House Oversight Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and the top Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security Committee Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., demanded the postmaster general and chairman of the U.S. Postal Service testify before Congress on Aug. 24. The Democrats said the testimony would be about the recent “sweeping and dangerous operational changes” at the agency that they claimed are “slowing” the mail and “jeopardizing the integrity” of the 2020 election.
Trump and the Republican Party have been warning for months about possible fraud connected to mail-in voting. The RNC and the Trump campaign have filed lawsuits to hit back against efforts by Democrats to overhaul voting laws in response to the pandemic; this, while Democrats say that cases of actual voter fraud are limited and claim that Republicans are trying to suppress voter turnout to improve their chances of winning elections.
Earlier this week, the USPS warned 46 states and the District of Columbia that it cannot guarantee all ballots cast by mail will arrive in time to be counted in the November election.
Democrats have asked for $25 billion, including $3.5 billion in election resources, to fortify the Postal Service in time for the election to be included in the fourth coronavirus stimulus package. Trump has said the Postal Service money won’t be coming through unless Democrats come to the negotiating table on coronavirus relief and give concessions to Republicans.
“Sure, if they give us what we want,” the president said of the post office money during a press conference Friday. “And it’s not what I want, it’s what the American people want.”
Consider the following, boys and girls…
The Democrats have not said a mumbling word about the rioting by the Marxist Anarchists of Antifa and BLM going on in our major cities.
However, they are afraid of Americans exercising their First Amendment Right to vote at their local polling place because of “fear of contagion”?
Trump Derangement syndrome has warped whatever sense they had left.
Does Pelosi and her gang of thieves actually believe that Average Americans are going to go along with them coming back to Washington to vote on giving money to the already bloated coffers of the USPS without signing off on another Coronavirus Stimulus Package to help Americans, like President Trump has already tried to do?
Average Americans, who were looking forward to another $1,200 Stimulus Check, are already mad at the Democrats in Congress for leaving town without taking care of business.
Their Propaganda campaign to confuse the meanings of voting by absentee ballot and mail-in voting has not worked.
So now, in a purely self-serving move, which is as unfounded and unnecessary as the Russian Collusion Probe, Queen Nancy wants to summon her serfs back to the castle because their plan to win the 2020 Presidential Election by means of Mail Fraud is being threatened.
The problem that Speaker Pelosi is not mentioning is the fact that, unless her and her co-conspirators sit down and actually negotiate an appropriate Stimulus Relief Package with President Trump and the Republicans, the Senate will not pass a Post Office Bill. And, even if they do, the President will veto it.
Something as blatantly arrogant and out-of-touch as what Pelosi is proposing would be a fitting finale for the circus clown act that the Democratic National Convention will be earlier this week.
Please, everybody, do not tell Pelosi and Company how arrogantly ignorant that they’re being.
At the rate they are going, President Trump is going to win all “57 states”.
Until He Comes,
