Many people want to believe my ambition is to be known as a prophet, and thus I will say anything! The truth is, I don’t want to be a prophet, and I want to be believed – because we are in DANGER! This was my motive for dressing like Santa Clause and going to the second OCCUPY meeting in Eugene in 2011 – nine years ago. For doing this my life has been threatened along with the lives of two cats who befriended me. Tomorrow, I will author a letter to the French Consulate on Washington and ask France to send hundreds of observers to record how our elections are bein rigged by the Trempvangelicals.
In the bottom pic you can see the postal boxes you can buy and fill and send for five dollars. There is a bag of beans I bought for a dollar. I bid people to buy a bag of beans and mail it to a elected Rebpublican who wanted to close down the Food Stamp office because it cost the taxpayers too much to feed the poor. I was replicating the scene from Miracle on 34th. Street where letters to Santa are put on the judges desk. I had, and still do not have, any Santa’s lil helpers. I tried to recruit Belle Burch, but, she was working me Sub-Rosa. I got death threats instead, and harassment from my evil neighbors.
“Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president. He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power,” Swift tweeted Saturday afternoon.
The pop star’s jab comes after the president said Thursday he would not be releasing any money for the cash-starved agency.
One day later, Trump told Fox News’ John Roberts that he would be willing to offer the $25 billion for the USPS, including $3.5 billion in election resources, should Democrats be willing to cave on some of the demands Trump has voiced.

Tom Wolf’s top election official said Friday, Aug. 14, that the administration had to take action after receiving a blunt warning from the U.S. Postal Service that it may be unable to deliver some mail-in ballots in the November presidential election by the deadline in state law. That warning precipitated Thursday night’s filing in the state Supreme Court asking for an order to extend the deadline for mail-in ballots to be received in the Nov. 3 election when Pennsylvania will be a premier presidential battleground.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service is warning states coast to coast that it cannot guarantee all ballots cast by mail for the November election will arrive in time to be counted, even if mailed by state deadlines, raising the possibility that millions of voters could be disenfranchised.

Voters and lawmakers in several states are also complaining that some curbside mail collection boxes are being removed.
Even as President Donald Trump rails against widescale voting by mail, the post office is bracing for an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The warning letters sent to states raise the possibility that many Americans eligible for mail-in ballots this fall will not have them counted. But that is not the intent, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said in his own letter to Democratic congressional leaders.
The post office is merely “asking elected officials and voters to realistically consider how the mail works, and be mindful of our delivery standards, in order to provide voters ample time to cast ballots through the mail,” wrote DeJoy, a prominent Trump political donor who was recently appointed.
The back-and-forth comes amid a vigorous campaign by Trump to sow doubts about mail-in voting as he faces a difficult fight for reelection against Democrat Joe Biden.
Though Trump casts his own ballots by mail, he’s repeatedly criticized efforts to allow more people to do so, which he argues without evidence will lead to increased voter fraud that could cost him the election. Meanwhile, members of Congress from both parties have voiced concerns that curbside mail boxes, which is how many will cast their ballots, have abruptly been removed in some states.
At the same time that the need for timely delivery of the mail is peaking, service has been curtailed amid cost-cutting and efficiency measures ordered by the DeJoy, the new postmaster general, who is a former supply-chain CEO . He has implemented measures to eliminate overtime pay and hold mail over if distribution centers are running late.
The Post Office released letters it sent to all 50 states and the District Columbia on its website. While some states with permissive vote-by- mail laws were given a less stringent warning, the majority with more restrictive requirements that limit when a ballot must be cast were given a more dire warning.
The laws, the letter said, create a “risk that ballots requested near the deadline under state law will not be returned by mail in time to be counted.”
