House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is in a panic and has called the lower chamber back to Washington, D.C. to address concerns about the United States Postal Service (USPS), according to Just THe News.
The House has been on its traditional August recess, but the speaker is putting an end to that to try and pass the “Delivering for America Act,” as Just the News reports.
Democrats are scrambling to protect their plans to enact mail-in voting in advance of the November election, in spite of growing concerns that such a system would open the door to widespread fraud.
All in for mail-in
Legislators had no problem taking a vacation while millions of Americans continue to suffer the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic and related shutdowns.
However, because of recent reform initiatives that supposedly threaten their plans to enact mail-in voting on a massive scale this fall, Democrats have suddenly found a sense of urgency and rushed back to work.
White House trade adviser Peter Navarro pointed this out this weekend, saying, according to Breitbart: “The irony of what’s getting Chuck and Nancy back to Washington; it’s not concern about the working men and women of America, who really need our help right now. They want to come back so they can rename the post office the United States ballot harvesting service.”
All of this frenzied activity comes in response to cutbacks at the USPS engineered by Trump-appointed Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, specifically new overtime rules and schedule changes that have purportedly led to some delays in service.
Considering that the nation is still in the grip of a pandemic, mail disruptions don’t seem like a terribly surprising occurrence, but given that the USPS is a critical part of Democrats’ plans to sway the election in their direction, the vigorous efforts from the left make a bit more sense.
The energy that Democrats are spending over these overblown complaints underscores — at least to many conservatives — what is probably their true motivation. The protests from that side of the aisle about supposed problems at the USPS are simply too loud.
Gateway to fraud
Democrats have been pushing mail-in voting for months, despite the fact that social distancing and other safeguards can certainly be observed at polling places, and even Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that there should be no problem with in-person voting this November, as Breitbart notes.
Democrats simply cannot be allowed to have their way on this one, and with appropriate safety protocols in place at the polls, there is no reason the presidential election cannot move forward on an in-person basis as planned.
