Why We Can’t Trust Postal
Workers With Our Ballots

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 8/17/2020 4:30:43 AM

If you are queasy about entrusting the U.S. Postal Service with a vastly expanded role in our electoral system in the midst of a crucial election, the following news will exacerbate your nausea. Last Friday, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) followed the lead of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) by endorsing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Thus far, most objections to increasing the role of the USPS in the election process involve the inevitable logistical problems that will accompany a precipitous expansion of mail-in voting. The addition of overt partisanship among postal workers to inefficiency renders it obvious that the widespread expansion of vote-by-mail is dangerous.

If you mail your ballot you will not know whether it will be received at the proper place and on time. Even if your ballot is delivered to the proper place, and on time, you will not know whether it will be accepted or rejected. If your ballot is rejected you will not know whether the rejection was justified. Many mailed ballots that should be rejected are accepted. Many mailed ballots that should be accepted are rejected. The possibilities for such fraud are numerous. VOTE IN PERSON!

If there is a way to cheat the democrats will find it and exploit it. This election is particularly crucial to both sides and the democrats will do anything to win. When there is voter fraud most likely is comes from the democrat party. There is no way we should accept mail-in voting and what comes with it, vote harvesting. We need to educate people about this because so many believe it is just like Absentee Ballots. Republicans should be buying ads now informing the public exactly what the concerns are. We never seem to get out there and advocate for a position and it is imperative that Americans understand the pitfalls. Just advising the public that the Postal Workers’ Union have endorsed Biden should be revealed. Please RNC, be pro-active and just put some ads out there explaining the ramifications of allowing the USPS to have such a critical part in the election. Don’t leave the narrative up to the democrats because they will always accuse Republicans of suppressing the vote. Come on, have a plan NOW to counter their argument. This is where we fall short so many times. Why do you think Prager U is under attack constantly? It’s because they put out the truth in an easy to understand and logical way. We have to be more pro-active and get our message out there. If we don’t we have no one to blame but ourselves. This may be the most critical issue facing us. If democrats are successful in pushing this one on us, it could be disastrous.

American Spectator raises the alarm, but gives no clue about how postal workers could actually affect voting by mail. Re: ballots going out to residents: Theoretically, postal workers could make sure ballots are not delivered to Republicans, but determining who is and who is not a Republican on a mail route would take a lot of work. Some towns do print lists that are available for sale and which show voter registration, but even so – not an easy job. Some yard signs could, of course, spur on the spot decisions to deep six a ballot. In many areas this year, residents are afraid to put out Trump signs, fearing reprisals, so signs are fewer than usual. Re: ballots being returned from the resident to the town: How would postal workers know how the resident voted without opening the envelope? Democrat and Republican ballots would then be revealed, but if Democrat ballots were delivered opened to the town (or whatever gov’t entity is supposed to receive them), suspicion would immediately fall on the postal workers – and questions would be raised about possible missing Republican votes.

There are so many legal ways for postal workers to determine D vs. R voters. Even in states that do not have party registration, anyone can obtain lists of people who voted in R or D primaries in past elections. (This is the way campaigns find out who their prospective voters are.) Simply get the lists of "triple R's" or "triple D's" from you local voting registrar, and pass it out the postal workers that deliver. Easy. Also, how would voter photo ID work in states where it is required?

My postal carrier knows how I vote by the mail that I receive from President Trump, the NRCC, etc. I mail my FL ballot at the post office itself, have it postmarked, and then check with the Supervisor of Elections office to ensure it has been received. Florida has been doing this for years and has a good system. For example, for tomorrows primary my ballot was received on July 20 and is awaiting counting (which will occur during the day tomorrow). This can be checked online by every voter. Other states putting up "cheat by mail / ballot harvesting" systems do not have these systems and safeguards in effect and should wait before trying this.

Trump is into efficiency. The USPS definitely doesn't want an efficiency expert any where near the them. They know that Biden will let them continue as is, plus he will use the USPS as an election 'asset.'.

Compare the chain of custody of a ballot for In Person Voting vs vote by mail. There is absolutely no control of vote by mail ballots when mailed to all registered voters. If you can protest in person, you can vote in person.

#4: are you joking? You don't have to know what each ballot says. You simply dump ballots from conservative districts. You also can send forged ballots and "find" them in time for a recount. USPS is a black hole mass operation. Does not provide a chain of custody. Their goal is to cause a chaos delay until the Speaker of the House is defaulted into the office of POTUS. Get real.

Daughter of a close friend, Ivy League professional degree, VP at a Manhattan merchant bank at 35, has no clue that absentee and mail in ballots are completely different. Moreover, is not interested if you try to explain. It is frightening. The only solution is that every single person voting Republican should do so in person.

Aside from having your ballot " lost", what about having it disqualified for some "technical" reason? Having voted by mail for the first time in Maryland during the Wuhan Flu, I was a nervous wreck about filling out the ballot properly. I even contacted my local Republican Chapter several times. I will never know if my vote was counted, disqualified, arrived on time or if it was "lost". And the left isn't concerned about any of those things for their side? Why? That alone makes me suspicious.

C) Failing that, they tried Attempted Coup via Russian Hoax D) Failing that, they tried Attempted Coup via Ukraine Hoax E) Failing that, they are now trying Fraud via Mail -in Votes ...Yes, you can show up to vote.....BUT...that won't stop them from MASSIVE voter fraud via ballot harvesting fake-ballots.

Do the States mailing out Ballots to everyone also have Polling Places for people to vote in person if they wish? If they do, every single Trump supporter should go to the Polls! If not, I guess short of taking your Ballot to the place where they are counting them, I don't know how you ever know your vote was counted!

When I lived in Maryland I worked the elections for four years. During one of our seminars the "teacher" kind of bragged that in Prince George's County they didn't even bother with counting absentee ballots if it seemed that Democrats had actually won prior to posting the election results. Maryland is the crookedest state I have ever resided.

I seriously doubt that the election will be decided by the end of November and who knows how long it will take the courts to decide? The only sure thing about democrats is that cheating in many forms is guaranteed. "Finding" misplaced votes and playing the shell game by closing voting places on election day and re-opening in another place known only to democrats are some of the favorites. Intimidation by protesters will be a new wrinkle this time around.

The postal service should be looked at as another democrat voting block and the postal union just endorsed Biden so why should we trust them with mail in voting. What Trump should do is declare election day a national holiday, that way there's no excuse for people to need cheat-by-mail voting. If people can go grocery shopping they can vote in person.

Hmm #10, so Republicans and Democrats are living in communes and there are no mixed neighborhoods? Lol. Democrat mailmen are going to take a list of voters with them, on their busy route and throw away votes accordingly? That's all quite a stretch. Democrats are going to win the election with these microscopic details? Everyone, don't let articles like this worry you, live in your head rent free. Polls had some people worried in 2016 and the political status was a myth, as Mr Trump won. So maybe there can be a verification system, perhaps send out email notifies, for those worried about being counted. Mailmen/women could lose their job and/or go to prison for tampering with the mail! Hide an "audit ballot" here & there in the batch, to confirm received and counted.

People who want to vote by mail already have a way. It's called Absentee Ballot. Why is that not good enough for democrats? Because Absentee Ballots are controlled. They must be requested and they are accounted for. The democrat scam of ''mail in voting'' does not require a request for a ballot, the ballots are not accounted for, and a person who votes in person would also have a mail-in ballot! That is, unless the mail-in ballot never reaches the voter. Those ballots may be intercepted, harvested, or destroyed- depending upon how the voter is registered. Democrats have proven that they are dishonest, and even outright criminal, so don't assume they would suddenly turn into honest citizens. Aside from that disaster, ballots will be mailed to dead people, vacant addresses, illegal voters, and voting ''sweat shops'' where harvested ballots are filled in by democrat partisans. If you receive an unsolicited ballot by mail, but will vote in person, destroy the ballot! Do not put it in the trash, where it can be salvaged by sanitation workers who might be paid for each one they find.

Whenver we have needed mail-in ballots, we completed them at home and one or both of us got them to the polling place on Election Day and walked them back to the locked box into which we inserted them ourselves. Those doing this bypass any lines. Very smooth operation. The inclusion of Party information on the outside of the envelope - it is printed there - makes our ballots ripe for the picking...

As a poster above advised, President Trump is into efficiency, as Trump is first and foremost a businessman who knows that any business that is not efficient will eventually go out of business. Trump also knows that the US Postal Service is too important to the country to go out of business, and therefore is taking steps to make the Postal Service as efficient as possible, including having commercial shippers pay the proper cost of shipping their packages so that the taxpayers will not have to go on subsidizing those shipping costs. The public employees postal workers unions could care less about efficiency throughout the postal service as their mantra to to represent the postal workers and obtain the most pay, benefits, and working conditions possible for their members. To do that they lobby politicians big time, almost all the time. In that respect, almost all public employees unions support liberal Democrat politicians who they know are going to be more generous with taxpayer’s money being sent to their members, both directly and indirectly than Republican politicians would vote for. That’s why the public employees unions just about always support the liberal Democrats, and is why the postal unions have already announced that they are supporting the Biden-Harris leftist and liberal Democrat ticket. That does not in anyway mean that all the postal workers are going to go along with union recommendations as to who or what political party they will vote for. To the leftists and liberal Democrats the federal public employees unions are almost as important as the teachers unions as supporters to keep them in political power. The Democrats also know that the postal workers unions will go along with efforts to slow down the mails during the week before the November election to sabotage any quick election result for as long as they possibly can, also knowing that as long as huge numbers of ballots are out there uncounted that there is more chance of fraud and mischief to the benefit of the Democrats.

In Oregon, it's required that the *outside* of the envelope indicate party affiliation. Gee, I wonder why the Democrat lawmakers included that requirement... All the Democrats I know talk about how great vote by mail works here. Sure, it works well for Democrats. They always get elected under this system. But the fact is I put my ballot in the mail and have no idea what happens to it after that.

Our County Clerk is a Democrat, who took it upon himself to declare that over 65 people should be mailed a ballot, because of the virus. Everyone that works in the County Clerk's office is a Democrat. The Democrats never quit, and this is how we are having mail in ballot creep in Texas.

#4 I doubt it would take nearly as much work as you suggest to change the election outcome. The various candidates happily do all that work for them by mailing solicitations for donations and votes to the voters registered in their party. The letter carriers would not have to compare voter registration records or yard signs to addresses. It’s likely a carrier could identify a huge percentage of Republicans and Democrats on their routes by simply taking note of the origin of the political junk mail being delivered to each residence. When election time comes the carriers would simply have to “lose” ballots sent to the mail customers who have previously received junk mail from unfavored candidates.

The postal workers´union supports Joe Biden, which is as sure an indication of a lack of intelligence as of a lack of ethical standards. Does anyone really believe that there are more than, say 500 postal workers of a conservative bent in the United States? So, in the days leading up to the arrival of your "mail-in ballot" a magazine from the Heritage Foundation arrives at your home, quite conspicuously to the "impartial" postal worker who opposes the candidate you prefer. A Knights of Colombus magazine both arrives and triggers your scrupulously impartial letter carrier. Finally, your ballot arrives. Does anyone seriously believe that your ballot will arrive untampered-with and before the deadline? I sure as hell don´t, and I suspect there are millions of honest American voters who want nothing more than to cast their single ballots. Mail-in ballots would be one certain way in which Americans lose the franchise (through voter fraud), and would provide The Left with a very certain way of saying "I don´t care, you Fascist Boomer." Unless you cannot be present to vote on Election Day, absentee ballots seem like the only decent option for conducting free and fair elections.

#17 Not ballots, but Republican campaign llierature was dumped. But point taken. Postal worker was a young black female who was fired. I point out race and gender because IMO young black females are the most militant persons in the US and the USPS employees so many. The possibility of vote by mail fraud is manifest.

In Washington state and others, the political party of the recipient is marked on the outside of the return envelope. In Florida, voters are required to add email addresses, phone numbers and sign the outside of the ballot envelope. The former makes it sooo easy to discard unopened ballots from the other political party. The latter makes it easy for voters to have their personal information stolen by anyone who handles that envelope. Are we really that stupid in this country?? IMHO (1) One citizen one vote: In person valid (pre-certified) Voter ID required at the polling place or with requested mail-in Absentee Ballot; (2) A receipt with a trackable number issued after voting or ballot number attached to each Absentee Ballot; (3) Chain of custody accountability: the date when the ballot was received, date when it was counted, able to match receipt# with a counted ballot at the official state website. Seems simple enough...

Anyone who deals with the Post Office knows of it's then WHY the push to have mail in ballots?... my personal opinion is.... the Dems want President Trump to delay the election... thereby using this as an excuse for impeachment when he's elected... just as the Sullivan judge is dangling General Flynn's case... hoping President Trump will pardon him... so they can scream about his dictatorial's August and their REAL polls show the President way ahead of biden... it's coming around again...

If you are subjected to vote by mail please use the drop box rather than a mailbox that bypasses the post office. That way you are only subjected to fraud by the state election officials who tend to find additional ballots as needed

In a typical absentee ballot there is an exchange of paperwork between the voter and the town they live in. By the time the voter is sent a ballot, the town has already verified that they are a registered voter, their identity, and their address. The preprocessing reduces confusion and fraud. The dems want to sprinkle ballots around the town and see what comes back. When they do, THEN the verification process starts. The pressure will be on to do it more quickly than accurately, a recipe for disaster. The dems have already been working on ballot harvesting. This would throw the doors open to this insidious practice. In person balloting is the way to go.

In my area, which is a postal hub, high school graduates often get jobs at the sorting machines. Twenty years ago, it was a good job for the summer before college, the pay was good because the hours were long. Letters got sorted by computer and just a little hands-on. My question is ''Did the new Postmaster General do away with all those sorting machines?'' Reset the machines to ''forget'' the difference between R votes and D votes. Easy-peezy.

There is even a message going around stating the supposed secret ballot is to be mailed in an envelope provided which has a long number below the bar code which has either an identifying D or R included. Any unscrupulous postal employee could toss aside votes so identified. We vote in person so I don't know for sure about the envelopes but any who plan to vote by mail might check the back of their ballot envelopes for such party identifiers.

I have voted "absentee" for several years because it's more convenient to fill out my ballot in my home without waiting in line at the polling place . To prevent my ballot from being "misplaced" by the incompetent USPS I hand deliver my ballot to my local election office. There's a reason Democrats like Gavin Newsom, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want voting by mail. They're corrupt and don't trust the American electorate so they must cheat to win elections.

If Republicans can luck out and take back the House and increase the senate and Trump wins, it’s the perfect opportunity to pass a new Election Security Act. Ban mail in voting, require voter ID and other measures to ensure the election can not be stolen and won by fraud.

#34 and others: this is only anecdotal, but I get daily solicitations from Republican candidates, and both my initial registration for ballots and two ballots for primaries did arrive on time at my house. I will now check the outside of return envelopes to see if party is noted there (it should not be!). If I possibly can, rather than putting my voting envelopes in the door to be taken by the mailman, I will take it to the town hall drop box.

Seven people, all from different households, not only gathered for Thanksgiving but distributed to the media pictorial evidence of them flouting mask mandates and social distancing edicts. No governor yet claims jurisdiction over the International Space Station but the astronauts have a lot of explaining to do when they return to earth. It’s not as though they lacked for space. Governors ordering around people 250 miles above their states seems far-fetched. But so, too, did the notion of governors usurping the role of legislatures. Eight months after the initial coronavirus lockdowns, citizens docilely accept the idea of a single person dictating the laws that govern millions of people.

Will Joe Biden and his foreign-policy team accept the extraordinary gift Team Trump is leaving for them under the Christmas tree — or is their hatred for the president so all-consuming that they will toss it in the garbage? I’m talking about the Abraham Accords, peace deals between Israel and various Arab states — the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan — that have sought the Jewish state’s destruction since its founding in 1948. Normalization has proceeded so quickly, Dubai already has a kosher restaurant, and its supermarkets are stocking Israeli agricultural products festooned with Stars of David — a science-fictional sight only a year ago.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday reflected on some of the most memorable moments during his two-year tenure heading the State Department, in a wide-ranging interview on "Special Report." "I haven't had a chance to reflect on it," Pompeo told Bret Baier. "I guess if I were to give you my quick response, it was really something to come back from Pyongyang with three Americans and travel home with them from Asia and return them to their families." Pompeo was referring to the May 2018 release of three Americans detained in North Korea -- all were accused of anti-state activities.

The suspects were identified as James Franklin, 27, of Roanoke, and Alan Douglas Mould, 26, of Lynchburg. Both men were charged with breaking and entering and assault and battery, Roanoke FOX station WFXR-TV reported. Police officers in Lynchburg responded around 1:40 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a burglary in progress, the station reported. The suspects allegedly knocked on the door of the residence and then assaulted the resident when he opened the door but the resident responded by shooting both suspects, police told the FOX station.

It was the kind of story that would once have had Matt Drudge deploying font sizes that newspapers used to reserve for declarations of war. On Oct. 14, Twitter and Facebook blocked users from spreading a New York Post article alleging that Hunter Biden had brokered meetings between his father, then the vice president of the United States, and executives at a Ukrainian energy firm where the younger Biden held an $80,000-a-month sinecure. The Post’s article included photos of what appeared to be an exhausted and intoxicated-looking Biden in various states of undress.

Research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein believes that search giant Google manipulated what content it showed users in the weeks and months before the 2020 election in a way that was highly favorable to Democrats. “We found a period of days when the vote reminder on Google’s homepage was being sent only to liberals,” Epstein said during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Not one of our conservative field agents received the vote reminder.” After Epstein made those results public, he said Google actually “shut off that manipulation” and were showing vote reminders to everyone in the four days before the election.

The practice of democracy in our constitutional republic flourishes in the presence of contradictions. Democracy, itself, is bound by our inalienable rights, bestowed to us by our Creator. These rights, not given to us by our government by any majority or by any vote, cannot be rescinded, for they were not wrought by man. Voting is a contradiction for it is both public and private at the same time. Its process is intended to be secret, but transparent. Its agency is intensely partisan, but its effect is intended to be unifying. The legitimacy of voting must survive despite the contradictions intrinsic to the process.
Trump’s Flynn Pardon:
Will the Judge Accept It?

Will Judge Emmett Sullivan accept President Trump’s pardon of General Michael Flynn? No one has suggested that possibility, other than The New York Sun. The general’s case, though, has become a bonfire of the vanities of one district judge who has denied the presumption of regularity to an official act of the United States government — meaning Attorney General William Barr’s attempt to drop the case. So why would Judge Sullivan credit President Trump’s workaround of a pardon? We understand, the pardon could be the least fettered of all the powers that the Constitution grants to the president.
Dangerous Game of Monopoly 7 replies

Many conservatives have moved their social-media accounts to the more freewheeling Parler, and often have slammed the supposedly monopolistic Facebook and Twitter as they’ve decamped from those sites. I have chuckled at some of their overheated parting rhetoric — especially the widespread misunderstanding about the meaning of the word “monopoly.” A monopoly is, as the Oxford dictionary explains, “the exclusive possession or control of the supply of or trade in a commodity or service.” Quite obviously, if one stops doing business with a company and heads over to its competitor, then the previous company is not by definition in exclusive possession or control of a service.

A circuit court ruled Monday that Texas and Louisiana can exclude Planned Parenthood from Medicaid funding, a win for the movement to deprive the abortion provider of federal funding. The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overruled a district court's preliminary injunction preventing the exclusion of Planned Parenthood from Medicaid funding. The court of appeals ruled in an 11-5 majority that Planned Parenthood did not have the right to challenge the state's decisions regarding who receives Medicaid benefits. Medicaid beneficiaries "have no right under the statute to challenge a State’s determination that a provider is unqualified,"

Just in case you thought that all of the elections aside from the Georgia runoffs were behind us, well… they’re not. The counting is still going on in some of the congressional races and one of the tightest ones is in New York’s 22nd district. There, Democratic incumbent Anthony Brindisis is locked in a recount with Republican Claudia Tenney, who previously held the seat before him. The race gap between the two has come down to the point where Tenney is leading by 106 votes and the only ballots left to possibly be considered are the ones that were “set aside” during the initial count due to irregularities.

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) appears to have started to shift his views on the filibuster with remarks that he made on two news shows on Sunday morning.The shift from Manchin comes after he has repeatedly stated that he would not vote to end the filibuster, despite pressure from the far-Left. During the interviews on Sunday, Manchin repeatedly claimed that he was not open to ending the filibuster because he did not want to strip the minority party of their power in the Senate, but signaled that he was open to changing it.Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Manchin if he would consider “reforming the filibuster” if “Republicans

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

I keep calling him general, but my, my—the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.(Snip) Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, “Secretary Austin,” while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Appearing on Yahoo!

The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
