USPS Flashback: Obama Administration Removed Thousands Of Mailboxes

>>Follow Matzav On Whatsapp!<<

President Trump has faced backlash over recent measures the U.S. Postal Service has taken to reduce service as November’s election approaches, including removing mail collection boxes from street locations. But eliminating mailboxes is nothing new and something that took place quite a bit during the Obama administration.

A pair of USPS inspector general reports provide details regarding the removal of thousands of mailboxes in the U.S., and during Obama’s second term people complained that too many mailboxes were taken away.

The same report revealed that in a 17-month period during Obama’s second term, hundreds of mailboxes were removed without following the appropriate process, as “322 out-of-service boxes were permanently removed from the street without Eastern Area approval or public notification to customers.”

  1. It is completely not relevant to Trump. Trump openly admitted in an interview that he is not giving funding in order to make mail-in voting harder. Everything is about voting. Obama’s administration may not have followed protocol in removing them but not in the least did it have anything to do with the elections (read the full article). The partisanship in the media; right and left, goyish and jewish, just completely sickens me.

  2. Over 20 years ago when people started using email and first class mail usage started to decline, the Post Office removed so many boxes that using the mails to send a letter became difficult. It used to be that you went to the nearest corner and put your mail into the box; now you have to look for a box. Then they wondered why mail dropped dropped off even more! A great way of thinking; make it harder to use the mails and then complain when people don’t use it!
    NYC does the same with garbage cans. It used to be that every corner had a can. To save money they took away most of the cans and then wonder why the streets are so dirty. They tried it in the subways hoping to starve the rats only to see the rats getting well fed so they were forced to put the cans back.

  3. The probable real reason why Trump removed various mail sorting machines:

    In 1990 I was given a tour of the mail sort center in Minneapolis. I was shown a mail sorting machine that could read each address on every letter and then print a barcode on the bottom, and then send the mail down the appropriate chutes for delivery. It did it at a blinding speed. More importantly, there was another kick out where mails would go to groups of people who would open them and read them. They were on two floors, a total of about 40 people. Presumably they had the job of sorting out what that machine could not read, but lots of envelopes got opened. They had every type of envelope needed to re-mail after opening, and detailed printers that made it all look undisturbed, IN 1990. THAT TECH WAS THERE IN 1990 – where they could scan and re-print envelopes that looked original.

    Obviously then, here’s what I think Trump shut down –

    If in 1990 you could be entered into a database and have your mail hit a kick out so spooks could read it if you were of interest, how much more advanced is that tech in 2020? My bet is that Trump removed mail sort machines that had been compromised to steal the election. If you’re a Trump supporter, they wanted your vote to go right in the trash, at the sort level.

    Trump should have ALL the sorting machines removed for this time period, – so many they have to do the mail the old way, by hand. The system is too compromised now for any kind of machine sorting to be trusted, they make the police state too efficient.

    Trump was absolutely right.

    • Problem: hand sorting is, also, open to fraud. In fact, I would say even more so.
      Maybe there should be cameras recording the human mail sorters.

      Also please note that, at least in theory, correspondence can be opened and tampered with (agreeing to do that is also one of the requirements for any private mail carrier to be licensed) only if the judiciary requests so. If you had any reason to think this was abused in the 90s, why were you silent back then?

  4. can the states just be intelligent and realize that doing vote by mail (especially without taking the time to create a proper system like the 5 states that already had universal vote by mail did) is a bad idea for many reasons and that if they wnt to have the elections in virus-free ways they should do it as a drive-thru or (walk-thru) and do extra days of early voting to limit crowds

  5. Obama removed mailboxes that were not being used regularly. He did not have to remove mailboxes to steal a election he WA already in office. He was restructuring it. Trump is trying to steal ballots. Dems don’t need to steal elections. It’s more Dems then it is Repugs. Republicans Always Steal elections. Ivanka has election machines being made from China. This is why Trump don’t want paper ballots they want you to touch tour answers on the machine to turn democratic vote to trump votes. Trump is in panic mold. He know he going to prison for life for tax evasion and fraud as well as insurance fraud. He has to win so he can hide from going to prison using the presidency. Trump will do State prison time and then Federal time. He shaking in his boots. The Post office General going to jail to. You can’t use the post office to suppress votes. All Trumps Cronies Are stupid. I would not let nobody convince me to do stupid criminal stuff where l am going to be locked up for helping somebody committ crimes. You see trumps buddies are in prison indicted or are going to prison.
