  1. Mr. Desucky in NYC there is still congressional primaries yet to be decided after more than 6 weeks due to mail in ballots. There was only 400,000 ballots and results are still pending. So how do you guarantee that this will be a fair election when millions of votes are to be counted?

  2. That’s exactly the point. How awesome of the President to make the demo-rats scurry back after they jumped ship to avoid giving is (THEIR BOSSES) the stimulus 2 vote. Yet when their scam vote scheme was put in danger they did a speedy Gonzales donut burn-out back to D.C.

    Hahaha

    Goes to show you .. Exactly who the roaches are when you turn on the lights!

    Bravo Mr President BRAVO

  3. Contrary to the current narrative, USPS is not the major problem presented by mail balloting – and neither is Fernando’s conspiracy nonsense. The major problem is that many states (which really means individual counties) are ill-prepared to handle a greatly increased volume of absentee ballots.

    • 1) the term “conspiracy theory” was a tactic designed by the CIA to shut up anybody not swallowing or who was challenging the Warren report on the Kennedy assassination. Meant to low brow someone into silence when the narrative gets uncomfortably too hot to counter.

      NEVER SHUT ME UP AND NEVER WILL

      2) The fact that the left all of a sudden wants to go “postal” on the election, only underlines that at worst, election fraud but multiple voting can happen and /or ballot harvesting…or AT BEST, COUNTING ON A DELAYED ELECTION NIGHT RESULT so they can highjack and protest.

      So yeah they counted on overwhelming the system.

      EITHER WAY HE WHO SMELT IT DELT IT!

  4. 1). The use of ‘conspiracy theory’ was coined and weaponized by the CIA to shut up and/or lowbrow anybody not swallowing the Warren report or vocalizing against if.

    2) CALLING ME A CONSPIRACY THEORIST doesn’t SHUT ME UP. IT STOKES MY FIRE TO SPEAK LOUDER!…..sorry Chucky

    3) As you pointed out.. THE DEMON/CATS WANT TO SLOWDOWN AND INTERFERE WITH A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. THUS DISENFRANCHISING MILLIONS OF VOTERS. STAGE A COUPE AND VENUE TO RIOT AND PROTEST A DELAY AND OR INSTIGATE BALLOT HARVEST FRAUD.

    • Ah, Fernando, I do not seek to “shut you up.” Your own posts discredit you more effectively than anything others could say. Those who cannot maintain a discussion based on logic and facts always resort to infantile name calling and incoherent rants. It has always been so.

  5. Robert, I do feel that there are MAJOR issues with the USPS. I am more concerned about people and veterans getting their medications. Please keep in mind, it’s much more than just medication that we rely on the USPS. There is a small amount of people ware unbanked that relies on the postal office to pay bills, rent, etc.

    Regarding voting, I always drop off my ballot at the polling box…bypassing the USPS issue. That is a simple solution for those who has concerns about their ballet getting counted due to the USPS situation. (Next comment NOT directed at Robert or has anything to do with agreeing or disagreeing with any theories, just my general thought) Regardless if it is a theory or not, it is factually true that “in general” mail is getting back logged, that that fact alone is simply not ok at ANYTIME regardless if it is during an election time or not.

    • Rob, I agree that USPS has fundamental issues – some of it’s own making and some the fault of Congress. My comment was that potential problems with mail-order voting are less a matter of USPS delays than they are the ability of the various counties to handle ballot tabulation.

  7. Is there an echo in this comment section?

    The blanket mail in ballot is a scam because it is different from absentee ballot. In absentee ballet you must prove who you are. You also must be entitled to vote. With blanket mail in there are no checks and balances. A dead dog could vote, a person not earning the right to vote could vote as many times, and the deceased could vote. That is a scam to the tax paying us citizen. This blanket ballot by us mail is a joke and our taxes should not fund a scam like this. Everyone who votes needs to be verified that they are eligible and prove it. In this country everyone must provide ID to do anything of importance. It should be more so I’m picking our leaders.
