The sky is falling! Trump hates the Post Office! Gotta vote Biden! Got it? Surely you are kidding, but no – that is the latest Democrat pitch.
Russia collusion, COVID confusion, Ukraine quid quo, and what do you know? Nothing is sticking. Socialist Democrats are in a funk. Their emotionally overwrought convention abandoned reason – and ended with this cherry on top: “Trump hates the Post Office!”
Democrats recited “We the People” from a Constitution they disrespect, used children as props to pledge to a flag they refuse to honor, sang an anthem for which they refuse to stand, showed photos of Americans hugging police – while they defund them. George Orwell would be proud – modern Democrats are making Big Brother look good!
Perhaps the biggest bit of misguided theater, however, was “Trump hates the Post Office!” Just when you think Democrat leadership cannot get crazier, they do. Old hopeful Amy Klobuchar, began with a joke: “The president may hate the Post Office, but is still going to have to send them a change of address card come January.” Thud. Humor – especially self-deprecating humor – is hard for Democrats. Where is Michael Dukakis in a tank when you need him?
In tandem, Chicago’s beleaguered Mayor Lori Lightfoot – trying to distract from record crime –accused Trump of a “full out assault” on the Postal Service. Whether she meant “all out” or “full on,” her point was clear. Trump is against Benjamin Franklin’s innovation. Remarkable, eh?
Former President Obama’s sanctimonious lecture to America clanged a similar bell. He said Trump is trying to “actively kneecap” the Post Office. Sure, that is what Trump is doing – not. www.politico.com/news/2020/08/14/obama-trump-postal-service-usps -395270#:~:text=Former%20President%20Barack%20Obama%20condemned%20President%20Donald%20Trump,House%20successor%20as%20%E2%80%9Cunique%20to%20modern%20political%20history.%E2%80%9D.
Democrats just keep sliding. They scheduled “Post Office hearings” to block the Republican convention. Good luck there; have at it. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-assails-us-postal-service-hearings-scheduled-around-republican-convention.
All this silliness is rooted in three facts.
First, Democrat leaders are punch drunk. From impeachment to their angry convention, they have consumed too much Cool-Aid. They love to hate Trump. In the quiet night, they have nothing to run on except distaste for Trump. They hope they can infect others with that hate.
Second, their convention flopped. It pinned hopes on a soap opera narrator and taped speeches attacking Trump and highlighting their “top three” – America is racist, COVID is Trump’s fault, and our economy must have Biden, not another Trump miracle.
In short, Americans do not buy what Democrats are selling. America prefers order to disorder, local police to no police, protection to no protection, end of riots to overrun suburbs. America knows COVID came from China – friend of Biden, a Communist country that plied his son with a major payday. They know the economy’s recovery will be faster with Trump.
Third, Democrats last shot is delegitimizing Trump’s reelection. If people show up at polls to vote, that is hard to do. But if they vote by mail and ballots are influenced, cast by illegals, late, lost, misplaced, re-found, and otherwise questioned – that puts Trump’s reelection in doubt.
Data suggest national mail-in voting would prompt fraud – failed out-mailings (due to erroneous addresses), tampered and fake returns, vote influencing, and unsupervised chain-of-custody. This becomes a “heads Democrats win, tails Republicans lose” situation. If Democrats gain by malfeasance, they win. If Trump wins, his victory can be de-legitimized by postal cuts. See, e.g., https://www.foxnews.com/politics/von-spakovsky-mail-in-balloting-voter-electioneering.
The notion that Trump aims to hurt the Post Office – inefficient but necessary – is nonsense. The Post Office has problems, but this election is wholly unrelated to any of them. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/08/20/upshot/coronavirus-election-mail-volume.html.
The Pelosi-driven, $25 billion-dollar “emergency” Post Office bill is a total fraud. No emergency exists, other than historic inefficiency. Financial review is needed. Pelosi’s gambit is to deceive America. She wants to compel mail-in voting, pin any cuts on Trump, and push her narrative: If Trump should win, it was because he cut the Post Office.
Let us be clear. Systematic postal downsizing began with Obama, not Trump. Obama cut overtime, collected mailboxes by the thousands, suggested closing rural offices, and tried to end Saturday mail – do you not recall? That was Obama, not Trump.
In truth, Obama tried to “kneecap” the Post Office. As Ronald Reagan once said, facts are stubborn things. Obama proposed cutting 12,000 postal jobs in his 2017 budget. Obama proposed slashing Saturday mail delivery and ending “to the door” delivery. So – who tried to “kneecap” the Post Office? See, https://www.govexec.com/management/2016/02/usps-records-first-profit-five-years-obama-calls-shedding-12k-postal-jobs/125825/.
Bottom line: Democrats are desperate. Their last-ditch gambit is to put protestors in front of Post Offices, chanting “Trump hates the Post Office!” The idea is to infect public thinking, so we believe Trump’s fraud-based opposition to mail-in voting is about hate not fraud. See, e.g., https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/dems-usps-controversy-manufactured-distraction-rep-james-comer.
Modern Socialist Democrats know no bottom. They will stoop to any artifice to oust Trump. In all honesty, the whole thing becomes adolescent at some point. I think that point is now. Over the weekend, Pelosi told Americans to ignore Trump. When he argues voting should be high integrity, ignore him. She says: “Don’t pay any attention to what the president is saying.” https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pelosi-rips-trump-for-trying-to-scare-voters-dont-pay-any-attention-to-what-the-president-is-saying.
In effect, the Democrat’s ploy is simple. “The sky is falling! Trump hates the Post Office!” Push emotion over reason. Here is a counterpoint: The sky is not falling. Trump does not hate the Post Office. Voting integrity matters. How about that?
For a refresher, try this video – The sky is NOT falling; Trump does NOT hate the Post Office. See, https://www.google.com/search?q=chocken.little+sky&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari. What more can one say? Truth is Donald Trump and Benjamin Franklin would see eye-to-eye. Misguided theater does not help Democrats. They just do not see it.
