Removed Thousands of USPS Collection
Boxes 0 replies
Did you hear the conspiracy theory that Donald Trump is sabotaging the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) by removing mail collection boxes in several states?Yeah, it’s a real doozy, but apparently that’s what the left wants us to believe. Outcry over the removal of collection boxes actually forced the USPS to suspend the removal of collection boxes until after the election.Joe Biden even chimed in on the so-called controversy, calling it “bizarre.”“I was joking earlier with a couple on the call, ‘I wonder if you’re outside trying to hold down your mailboxes.’ They’re going around literally with tractor-trailers picking up mailboxes,” he said.

Gain Steam 1 reply
The media and Democrats lambasted President Donald Trump for his supporters’ chants of “lock her up” during the 2016 presidential election, but in 2020 it is Democrats who are warming to the idea of prosecuting Trump after the election.While Biden himself told NPR that prosecuting Trump would be “probably … not very good for Democracy,” he said he would not interfere with the Justice Department’s judgement of whether a prosecution was necessary.

the White House — just like FDR 8 replies
Democrats are practically foaming at the mouth over an idea being floated by President Trump (which is hardly news — that’s been said almost every week since Jan. 20, 2017). What has the opposition party riled up now is the possibility of Trump accepting the Republican Party’s presidential nomination at the White House.
