Trump admits to attempting to rig the election and destrop the USPS! From The UK  Guardian

Louis DeJoy: is Trump's new post office chief trying to rig the election?

https://tinyurl.com/y2s65y7v

From CNN

"Democrats and several state leaders are pushing back on what they see as the Trump administration's attempt to throttle the US Postal Service to influence the upcoming presidential election. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling on the House to return to Washington, likely next weekend, for an unheard of session during presidential convention season to address the concerns. Democrats also want the new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to testify and address charges that his controversial new policy changes are intended to deliberately slow mail-in voting. At least a half dozen states including Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia are also considering legal action against the Trump administration and the United States Postal Service to stop these changes from going into effect. At DeJoy's behest, the USPS has slowed delivery, removed high-speed letter sorters and will no longer automatically give priority to mail-in ballots."

Has there been anyone so brazen, his party and followers so corrupt?

Russia Investigation 

We're learning more about the aftermath of the wide-reaching Russia investigation that concluded last spring. According to the Washington Post, Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee told the Justice Department last July they believed several people close to President Donald Trump, including his son Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and former adviser Steve Bannon, may have misled them during testimony in the investigation. It's not clear whether their suspicions led to any further inquiries, or any ongoing investigations. This news comes after Senate Committee chairmen announced this month they had adopted a fifth and final report -- yet to be released to the public -- which they compiled on Russian interference in 2016.






diglady

Senate and the House have set up hearings. Law suits have been filed against Dejoy and Trump.
A hue and cry from citizens across US. This may be Trumps last gasp. He is America's Hitler and I have emailed the White House with that statement too. 


diglady

DeJoy is saying he didn't know about mail sorters being dismantled or Blue boxes being removed. Yea sure! Another liar.
Anyone notice how orange Trump looks. What the heck does he use?

Biden sounded wonderful for his acceptance speech.
 I love the smiles. We have haven't seen smiles in years just frowns and grimaces.

angelface555

DeJoy is a huge Republican and Trump contributor which is one reason he got his present job. He's not going to admit to anything and with the present political climate, he probably feels invincible.

One of Trump's last gasps;

Trump: I Spoke to God About the Economy and He Trusts Me To Rebuild It  BY BETH STONEBURNER

During a small rally in Minnesota this week, Donald Trump claimed that God spoke to him about the state of our economy and how everything is going to be just fine. Strangely enough, the way God speaks sounds very similar to Trump. I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

The Christian Post summarizes his statement:

He then revealed the conversation he had with God about the economic crisis.

"You know what that is? That's right. That's God testing me," Trump explained. "He said, You know, you did it once. And I said, 'Did I do a great job, God? I'm the only one who could do it.' He said, 'That you shouldn't say. Now we're going to have you do it again.' I said, 'OK. I agree. You got me.' But I did it once. And now I'm doing it again. And you see the kind of numbers that we're putting up. They're unbelievable. Best job numbers ever. Three months, more jobs in the last three months than ever before."

Just to state the facts about the job numbers, the unemployment rate fell significantly, yes, but only because it had gotten so high since April. It's like raising the price of a gallon of milk from $2.50 to $5.00... then reducing it to $4.75 and telling everyone it's a huge deal. No it's not. Not in context.
Anyway, considering how little Trump respects religious principles, you would think people can see past his cheap attempt at pandering. Not only did Trump never speak to God, it's highly doubtful God's primary focus was the economy instead of, say, the pandemic that has killed more than 170,000 people. The families of those who lost loved ones to the coronavirus deserve a government that will actually try to help them. Instead, the people who were evicted because they couldn't pay rent are still struggling, as are many of the people who lost their jobs to COVID.

Most of all, from a Christian perspective, the health of the economy shouldn't be anyone's biggest priority. Jesus frequently spoke out against the wealthy who hoarded their possessions at the expense of the poor. Who is it, after all, that drives the economy in the first place? People. Essential workers. Unless those people are singing Trump's praises, he hasn't achieved much of anything.

Think about this.

Trump tweets that Democrats are requiring an ID to get into the DNC... The virtual convention? The one being held online? The one that no one's attending in person?

Bannon jokes about stealing from Wall fundraiser


"Only one day after he was indicted on conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering charges, a video has surfaced showing former Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon joking with one of his alleged co-conspirators about stealing "all that money from 'We Build The Wall,'" a crowdfunding campaign that raised more than $25 million with the promise to erect a barrier on the southern border.

"Welcome back and this is Stephen K. Bannon. We're off the coast of Saint-Tropez in southern France, in the Mediterranean. We're on the million-dollar yacht of Brian Kolfage. Brian Kolfage—who took all that money from 'We Build The Wall," Bannon joked in the video, adding, "No, we're actually in Sunland Park, New Mexico."'

New Trump Rule Could Create 'Bomb Trains,' Environmentalists Say
The administration has a 'wildly unsafe' plan to transport liquified natural gas on railroads, with tanks carrying enough explosive power to level a city, according to a new lawsuit

"Ships carrying LNG have been characterized as floating bombs," Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, who's leading a coalition of states fighting the rule, said in a statement on Wednesday. "Rolling tank cars filled with LNG through our neighborhoods are vastly more dangerous. This proposal is heedless of the risks to the safety of our families and our natural resources posed by moving massive quantities of LNG by rail through our cities, towns."

Quite a list of present and past Republican members of Congress who support Biden:

https://www.kgun9.com/news/election-2020/jeff-flake-jim-kolbe-among-republicans-supporting-joe-biden-in-presidential-race

I watched the RNC last night. Boy the speeches were sure scary! D Trump Jr and his girlfriend were the worst-She is a shouter; he is a bully like his father. Oh Me! The only positive thing I saw was Trump talking with 6 hostages he brought home. I didn't know that.

angelface555

Did he being the hostages home or is he taking credit for someone else's diplomacy?


angelface555

I wish more would follow their lead.

I am not into politics but just heard on our BBC UK news Joe Biden's speech condemning Trumpety Trumps handling of the C - Virus as close to criminal...all i can say is good to him ( Joe Biden ) for telling it like it is, i am impressed...yes be honest, you've got to level, shoot from the shoulder as he put it...

Thanks to his sheer idiocy, Trumpety Trump...i heard on our news a few days ago of vendors ( UK ) exposed selling bleach as a remedy for C - Virus...One claimed her sales had increased following the comment he made....

Trump has fomented US Citizen's distrust in:
 Newspapers
 NSPS
 Voting
 CDC
 FBI
Dept. Justice
 census
 White House

Sandy

And to top it all off, 
Justice Ginsburg has just died.... 

Now I am really depressed.

Ginsburg will be sorely missed especially by women.

CV-19 deaths approaching 200,000 Trump is without regrets. He says there would be more maybe 2-3 million had he not done what he did.

This creature has no redeeming features.
