Pelosi Scrambles to Call Back House From Recess

The House of Representatives is out for August recess. But Nancy Pelosi is desperate to get members back into House chambers, with House leadership reporting as early as next week. The full chamber could return in two weeks, even though they aren’t scheduled to vote until September 14.

Hold on, whatever happened to the fear of COVID-19? After all, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced on the 10th that the House would only hold committee work in early September. Gotta keep Democrat House members safe and healthy.

Plus, any House work in September would be light, said Hoyer.

“The September schedule will follow the same format as June and July, so that we can conduct our necessary work while protecting public health.”

But public health be damned, said Pelosi. We need to return. Why? As Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) tweeted:

“Trump is attempting to sabotage the USPS.”

This, of course, is the Democratic default position: Trump is to blame for All The Bad Things. And the Bad Thing that might happen is that Democrats’ beloved mail-in voting could fail.

Here’s how this all started.

First of all, the US Post Office has been losing money, which is no surprise considering the rise of email and private companies that send packages.

And then there’s the behemoth called Amazon.

So in June, Louis DeJoy, a logistics company executive, became the new postmaster general, and President Trump tasked him with making the Post Office more profitable. DeJoy cut overtime and late deliveries, among other operations. The Associated Press claims these steps have resulted in “a national slowdown of mail.” Your results, as they say, may vary.

Because of DeJoy’s actions, the Post Office is now warning states that it can’t guarantee that mail-in votes for the national election will arrive in time to be counted. That’s even if citizens cast their votes by state deadlines.

Democrats are panicking, since this could spell the end for their beloved vote-by-mail scheme policy. On Friday, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer put out a joint statement:

“The President made plain that he will manipulate the operations of the Post Office to deny eligible voters the ballot in pursuit of his own re-election. The President’s own words confirm: he needs to cheat to win.”

Trump fired back that he’s willing to sign legislation for more Post Office funding. But first the Democrats have to pony up some agreements, too. He said in a press conference on Saturday:

“The Post Office is a catastrophe. And obviously if you’re going to do these millions of ballots out of nowhere, [DeJoy is] going to obviously need funding. But the Democrats aren’t willing to provide other things and therefore they’re not going to get the funding for that.”

And, for perhaps the first time in American history, protesters began demonstrating on behalf of the Post Office. The group “Shut Down DC” even marched to DeJoy’s home while banging on pots like toddlers. They also stuck notes in his front door.

Then on Saturday, a Very Important Person expressed her own deep thoughts on the Post Office controversy.

It was none other than Taylor Swift. Upon hearing of the Post Office peccadillo, the blonde pop singer — whose minions recently threatened a journalist for giving Swift’s new album a rating of 8/10 — tweeted her wisdom on the controversy. Not only did she shout out her Trump hatred, she also telegraphed marching orders to her hordes of “Swifties.”

Trump is CHEATING! And PUTTING MILLIONS OF AMERICANS’ LIVES AT RISK IN AN EFFORT TO HOLD ON TO POWER!

Oh, the irony of Taylor Swift’s choices!

Nancy Pelosi wants to get national vote-by-mail, come hell or high water. She even held up coronavirus relief in July because she wouldn’t put vote-by-mail in a separate bill. She had to stick it in a relief bill — which had absolutely nothing to do with providing help for Americans financially underwater due to the pandemic.

Watch how she threw a fit when she was asked to put vote-by-mail in a separate bill:

National mail-in voting is fraught with disaster from the start. First of all, as mentioned above, the Post Office is unable to guarantee that they can get the votes in on time. But also allow me to ask — have you ever walked precincts for a candidate? You would’ve followed the voter addresses that your local election office provided. And if you have used those voter rolls, then you know those things have lots of errors.

As Attorney General Bill Barr said:

“There are ballots left in boxes in apartment buildings, ballots for people who used to live at addresses are delivered to those addresses.”

“They can be filled out by anybody. This is reckless and it could create serious questions about the integrity of the election, and to do this when we are closely divided country as we are is playing with fire in my view.”

They can be filled out by anybody. But that’s exactly what Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat cohorts want. That old saw about dead Democrats voting in Chicago is not just a joke — it’s a default position for Pelosi and crew. Voting by mail would make the cheating that much easier.

American voters have options available to them other than standing in crowded lines on Election Day. Most states hold early in-person voting. Some allow in-person or mail-in absentee voting. For mail-in absentee voting, some states require an excuse; others do not.

Last month I voted in a state primary, casting my vote early and in-person. There was plenty of social distancing, and yes, I wore a mask. The polling site ran like a well-oiled machine. And guess what — no COVID for me!

Nancy Pelosi is so desperate to get her mail-in voting that she’ll risk the health of House members while insisting that Americans must have mail-in voting for safety’s sake. Let that sink in.

But if people can shop at a grocery store or a Home Depot, or if they can protest in the streets, they can stand in a socially-distanced line and vote. Or they can request an absentee ballot. But not only will vote-by-mail lead to fraud, it also cheapens the votes of those who go through the effort to cast their ballots honestly.

    You can tell they are freaking out with President Trump’s efforts to reshuffle the inner resistance hiearchy and remove the cancerous corporate culture tumor which heads to massive vote fraud operation called mail in voting, it’s USPS this and USPS 24/7, Trump’s fault, Trump’s treason etc, from the usual suspects, along with every converged musician and pedo-wood actor, it’s an all hands effort.
    Mr. Trump’s dropping bombs dead nuts centered over the target.
    Very cunning on Mr. President’s part to dis-organize the margin of vote fraud operation, operational structure, by going after it’s managerial command and control structure.
    Actually only POTUS could accomplish this exactly because of Black’s letter law of executive power. It is also brilliant tactics, the timing is pitch perfect, and it knocks THEM, (The Human Extinction Movement), back on their heels making them react is self preservation. Make THEM have to defend everything, and in Warr, as in Hobbesian Warr, he who defends everything defends nothing.
    The old standby of creating this breathless appearance of legitimacy of presidential elections, where the procedure is to craft this close race in the yellow media, employ poll’s as both a political weapon and an instrument of estimating how much margin of vote fraud needs to be created to just beat the so called opposition candidate. I think the margin of vote fraud usually about 3%, seems over my life time this is a standard number, percentage of vote.
    Another thing too, is vote fraud on the presidential campaign level is a very expensive undertaking, requiring a raft of operatives and actors, and it is extremely time sensitive, where there is this very narrow window of time in which the vote fraud must be undertaken. And Vote Fraud that is successful only can be so when it is committed under clandestine conditions, covert. And, it must be used in key voting precincts, which is the gross gerrymandering aspect. Break one of these links in the vote fraud chain the rest fails.

    Going to require some crazy wacky water weasel Hawaiian commie run Court, last second antics to stop President Trump’s Executive powers. Some really serious jump the shark way past full retard efforts. Then theres Pelosi’s dirty tricks. She can’t use blackmail on Trump, Trump never fell for the #Pizzagate, #BillClintonIsAPedo, extortion setup. Good folks do not do such things. Good folks do not do these things. She has nothing on Mr. Trump, except pejorative tactics, and the complicit yellow media. One thing they fail to understand about President Trump here is he never breaks the law, even the color of the law, makes Mr. Trump politically and criminally untouchable. It is impossible to rightfully stop President Trump because Trump is an honest man at heart and action. He never intentionally commits violation of the trust his office as top representative of the People and the Rule of Law, at the very worst, he might do so out of omission, but not commission. The guy is too smart and intelligent to fool more than once.

    Personally, I se everything going down, from the panic-demic to the never ending corruption and palace coup, Burn Loot Murder, all of Soros’s insects and minions, slithering out from under their rocks, as the best thing could happen, really the only way it could happen, and an opportunity that comes maybe once in an age, to rid Our Great Christian Greco-Roman Civilization of THEM, destroy the ideological farce of world communism root and branch.
    They have to go. There’s nothing else for it.
    We’ve got to rid ourselves of the real pandemic.

    Senator Schumer is CORRECT!
    Trump WILL steal the election!
    Demand in-Person voting. With photo ID.
    (place appropriate fist emoji here)

    Screw that Trump!

    You need only look to Paterson NJ to see what can happen with mail in voting. Extend that same thing nationwide and you end up with a contested election that would be tied up in court for years. That’s exactly what they want. They know Biden can’t win so they will either cheat enough to get Biden over the finish line or contest so many districts that Trump can’t be declared the winner and can’t be inaugurated in January.
    Did you see that there was a protest march in DC for mail in voting? It’s okay to assemble to protest but not to vote. The irony was apparently lost on them.
