Pelosi's Postal Lie
She shamelessly feigns defending the Constitution while spinning conspiracies.
When Democrats talk about defending the Constitution, we can’t help but laugh. That’s doubly true when it’s Nancy Pelosi, and triply so when she’s combining her feigned allegiance to Rule of Law with spinning not one but two conspiracy theories.
“The Russians were there and they are there now 24/7 trying to interfere in our election, but they’re not the only ones,” an unhinged Pelosi yammered Monday. “We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and … our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States.” She added, “They’re doing everything they can [to] suppress the vote with their actions, [to] scare people, [to] intimidate by saying law enforcement will be there, [to] diminish the role of the postal system in all of this. It’s really actually shameful. Enemies of the state.”
As for Pelosi’s conspiracy theories, despite her allusion to the Democrats’ four-year lie, Donald Trump did not collude with Russia, as yet another investigation just concluded last week. Russia sought to interfere in the 2016 election, but it had no effect on vote tallies. Nevertheless, that’s how Pelosi and her Democrat co-conspirators aim to tie it to their latest conspiracy theory about Trump’s diabolical plot to undermine the Postal Service so as to cheat in 2020.
“Support the postal system,” she says, “which is election central.” It’s laughable to suggest that the Postal Service can’t handle additional ballots without the extra billions in funding Democrats demand. That’s a massive diversion.
But since Pelosi brought it up, the fraud that will take place due to phony mail-in ballots will utterly dwarf anything the Russians ever dreamed of accomplishing with their scheme. Democrats are opening up this election to fraud.
It’s important here to distinguish something: Requested absentee ballots are not the same as a virtual carpet-bombing of ballots. A voter asks for an absentee ballot. That voter expects to receive it and is likely the one to fill it out and return it. For those who worry about the pandemic, there is plenty of time between now and Election Day to request one. Every state allows absentee ballots, and 34 states with 118 million registered voters allow absentee voting regardless of reason.
What Democrats seek is very different. They want to preemptively mail ballots all over the country, introducing a new system with just over two months to go before the election. Nine states and Washington, DC, are already mailing ballots directly to all 44 million of their registered voters. And, according to The New York Times, “Over all, 27 states and Washington, D.C., have in some way expanded voter access to mail ballots for the 2020 general election.” But a wholesale change to the system now?
With such weakly vetted ballots, who’s doing the voting? We’ve repeatedly warned (with examples) about the wide-open potential for massive voter fraud from mail-in voting.
A couple of final notes. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy eviscerated the tinfoil-hat Democrats in a virtual hearing Monday, though they did their best (without evidence) to accuse him of various crimes. Notably, however, the Postal Service he runs is staffed by a union that just endorsed Joe Biden. And it’s the same Postal Service that worked to benefit Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Yet Democrats and their media allies would rather scare voters about Trump than let the truth be known.
