US election officials will be relying upon the US Postal Service (USPS) for the foreseeable future as they are given the enormous responsibility of handling absentee ballots, which should cause anyone concerned about the integrity of elections to be very concerned as radicals are targeting the USPS for usurpations.
“The more our elections rely on the Postal Service, the more interference we can expect,” Chuck Devore wrote for The Federalist, seeing pain on the horizon for voters if the USPS is allowed this power.
Many people ask where the government oversight is for such a thing, especially those who understand the nefarious leftist Marc Elias, the radical fighter behind the 2020 ballot scheme that destroyed all trust in our elections.
Elias’ support alone should send shivers down the spines of liberty-loving Americans.
What the corrupt Elias is happy about is that more power is being taken away from the people to regulate elections, moving elections into the hands of the administrative state to control.
Here is what is happening- the USPS is creating a division to handle election mail issues as part of an effort to ensure the swift and secure delivery of ballots for the 2022 midterm election, according to US Postal officials.
“The idea behind the creation of the Election and Government Mail Services is to have a permanent division dedicated to dealing with election matters, instead of handling issues one at a time as in the past,” The AP reported in late July.
Adrienne Marshall, executive director of the division, told the outlet that the services will oversee “election mail strike teams” in every local and district community to address any problems that might arise.
“We are fully committed to the secure and timely delivery of the nation’s election mail,” Marshall said.
The Postal Service was dogged by backlogs and questions ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Nevertheless, more than 135 million ballots were delivered to and from voters and made a powerful arm of the Democrat’s harvesting schemes.
Devore is suspicious.
“Starbucks recently asked the National Labor Relations Board to suspend all pending and ongoing votes to unionize at its U.S. stores due to concerns stemming from mail-in ballots.
The franchise’s objections once again raise questions about the credibility of election systems that rely on mail-in ballots,” he reported.
“As with coffee companies, how much more with the American electoral process? With hundreds of millions of dollars of campaign material and increasing numbers of ballots in the mail, postal efficiency and honesty are becoming increasingly vital to free and fair elections.
The rationale for this new division is that the growing use of mail-in ballots requires extra attention to ensure the greater volume of mailed ballots can be handled by an increasingly overburdened USPS,” Devore wrote.
The USPS reported it delivered more than 135 million ballots in 2020, with 40 million delivered so far this year during the primaries.
Devore went on:
“Elections conducted by mail have been a longtime goal of Elias and others since long before public health fears over in-person voting during the Covid-19 pandemic.
It is instructive to note that most European nations found mail-in ballots to be susceptible to fraud and limited their use.
Among other problems, mail-in ballots can be cast by someone other than the voter, voter ID measures are harder to ensure absent in-person voting with a government-issued ID, and the secret ballot is more easily compromised by professional ballot traffickers who “help” the voter fill in their ballot. Thus, mail-in ballots will be an increasingly important part of the Democratic election playbook.”
Joe Biden nominated three people to fill vacancies on the nine-member USPS Board of Governors. The board determines the postmaster general, who remains, for now, Louis DeJoy.
Radical leftists have targeted and threatened DeJoy for years since before the 2020 election, wanting to unseat him from his position.
Louis DeJoy has effectively been neutered as postmaster.
Thanks to Biden's picks to USPS, his key allies are off the board, replaced with labor leaders and other qualified experts, and USPS is already starting to rescind some of his policies like his gas-guzzling truck order.

Devore goes on:
“Biden’s nominees include the former chief counsel for the American Postal Workers Union and the head of the National Vote at Home Institute, a non-profit that pushes for nationwide mail-in voting. In addition, some 80 Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives sent a letter to Biden urging action on the board of governor nominees to speed DeJoy’s ouster.
Should the voting public be concerned about the USPS paying closer attention to mail-in ballots? It depends on the trust you place in federal institutions and their employees.”
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is the oldest federal law enforcement branch, which explains why it was the US Postal service that arrested Steve Bannon. The authoritarian left loves the idea of weaponizing government institutions to attack their political opponents.
In these troubling times ahead, take solace that it was the Postal Service who arrested Steve Bannon, and librarians were responsible for the search warrant at Mar-a-Lago.

Knowing the motivations, Democrats have to weaponize these institutions; elections may not be accessible for much longer if they are allowed this power.
Regarding election-related mail, both campaign material and ballots, the Postal Inspection Service says they monitor “political and election mail as it moves through the postal network to prevent, identify and resolve any issues that might interfere with its secure and timely delivery.” All of which sounds great in theory, but what happens if the mail doesn’t get through?
“Or if it doesn’t get through selectively? Investigating after the fact won’t change election results,” Devore reminds us.
And therein is the next stage of the plan to remove voting rights away from the opponents of Democrats- unless Americans grab up their remaining voting powers now. Before they are gone forever.
