  • Trump Admits to Attempting to Meddle in the Election

    True to form, Trump admits to election interference. Isn't this illegal and a felony?

    1.https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/13/polit...020/index.html

    Sometimes -- OK, a lot of times -- Donald Trump says the quiet part out loud.

    Like during an interview on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning when Trump flatly admitted the real reason why he is blocking the inclusion of any money for the United States Postal Service in a coronavirus relief bill in Congress.
    Here's exactly what he said:
    "They want $3.5 billion for something that will turn out to be fraudulent, that's election money basically. They want $3.5 trillion -- billion dollars for the mail-in votes, OK, universal mail-in ballots, $3.5 trillion. They want $25 billion, billion, for the Post Office. Now they need that money in order to have the Post Office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots..." ... Now, if we don't make a deal, that means they don't get the money. That means they can't have universal mail-in voting, they just can't have it. So, you know, sort of a crazy thing. Very interesting."
    Let's be very, very clear about what Trump is saying here...

    President Donald Trump said Thursday that he opposes much-needed funding for the United States Postal Service because he doesn't want to see it used for mail-in voting this November.

    By directly linking USPS funding to mail-in voting, Trump is fueling allegations that he is trying to manipulate the postal system for political gain. The pandemic has led to record-shattering levels of voting-by-mail, but Trump has tried to restrict the voting method because he says it will hurt his re-election and Republicans across the board.

    During an interview on Fox News, Trump said that if USPS does not receive the additional $25 billion funding request that Democrats included in the ongoing stimulus negotiations, then he believes the Post Office won't be able to handle the influx of mail-in ballots in the upcoming election.

    "They want three and a half billion dollars for something that'll turn out to be fraudulent, that's election money basically. They want three and a half billion dollars for the mail-in votes. Universal mail-in ballots. They want $25 billion, billion, for the Post Office. Now they need that money in order to make the Post Office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots," Trump said, repeating his false claims that mail-in voting would be "fraudulent.""But if they don't get those two items that means you can't have universal mail-in voting because you they're not equipped to have it," Trump added.

    Trump has criticized mail-in voting for months, baselessly asserting that it will lead to voter fraud.

    A new poll from Pew Research Center finds that 49% of registered voters expect voting in the November elections to be difficult, a vast increase from the midterm elections two years ago as President Donald Trump attacks mail-in voting.

    The poll was conducted while Trump was criticizing mail-in voting but before he said on Thursday that he opposes funding for the US Postal Service because he doesn't want to see it used for mail-in voting in November. Trump's attacks on mail-in voting and USPS are being slammed as an attempt to manipulate the system for political gain, as he could benefit from voter suppression among communities who vote by mail.

    The Pew poll is a sign that voters are adjusting their expectations in the face of those attacks and anticipation of difficulties with a system adjusting to the coronavirus pandemic. It shows 50% of voters expect voting in November to be easy. That's a huge change from 2018, when 85% said they expected voting to be easy and 15% said difficult.

    Significantly more voters who plan to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden in November expect voting to be difficult (60%) than those who plan to support Trump (35%). In 2018, there was a much smaller partisan divide, with a majority who planned to support a Republican House candidate expecting it to be easy (90%) as well as a majority who planned to support the Democratic candidate (83%).Voters also express that the stakes are extremely high for this election, with 83% saying that "it really matters who wins the presidential election," and 16% who think that "things will be pretty much the same regardless of who is elected." The number of voters who think it really matters is the largest share to say so since Pew started asking the question in 2000.

    A large share of voters said the major party candidates take different positions on the issues (86%), while only 9% think their positions are similar. The share who view their positions as different is significantly higher than in previous election years between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney (75%), Obama and John McCain (75%), George W. Bush and John Kerry (68%) or Bush and Al Gore (60%). Pew did not ask this question about Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    And yet, Conservatives will remain silent on this voter fraud and even come out in support of Trump meddling in the election.
    Conservatives in the U.S. won't be happy until Jim Crow returns and "White Heterosexual Only" signs are legalized.

      Of course they will. It's a simple case of Trumper's loyalty to a political party instead of loyalty to the nation. And that is pathetic.
