  1. @brianschatz 1) USPS cannot “lose money” any more than the DOD or DOT can. 2) A stupid old law makes USPS pre-fund pensions with cash - something no other agency must do, just to make it look like a big loser. 3) Government shouldn’t have to pay for itself with fee revenue.

  3. Judge removes Green Party candidates from ballot; accuses Montana GOP of ‘constructive fraud’ "District Judge James Reynolds of Helena said several hundred people who signed the petition were improperly denied their request to withdraw their signatures, after discovering that the Montana Republican Party was behind the petition drive. He said the withdrawal requests must be accepted, and that with those withdrawals, the petition falls short of the minimum needed to qualify the Green Party for the 2020 ballot. In his 50-page order, Reynolds essentially said the state GOP engaged in “constructive fraud” and “negligent representation” by not timely disclosing its role in the petition drive, thus justifying acceptance of the signature withdrawals. “The actions of the Montana GOP and its agents demonstrate that its misrepresentations and failures to disclose in violation of Montana campaign finance law were intentionally designed to create an advantage for the MT GOP at the expense of unwitting signers,” he wrote. If Reynolds’ order stands, five Green Party candidates – for U.S. Senate, U.S. House, governor, attorney general and state Senate in Missoula – will not appear on the Nov. 3 general election ballot........... https://missoulacurrent.com/government/2020/08/green-party-3/

  8. Successful Elimination of Covid-19 Transmission in New Zealand- "........There are several lessons from New Zealand’s pandemic response. Rapid, science-based risk assessment linked to early, decisive government action was critical. Implementing interventions at various levels (border-control measures, community-transmission control measures, and case-based control measures) was effective. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern provided empathic leadership and effectively communicated key messages to the public — framing combating the pandemic as the work of a unified “team of 5 million” — which resulted in high public confidence and adherence to a suite of relatively burdensome pandemic-control measures......." see: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2025203?query=C19&cid=DM96666_NEJM_Registered_Users_and_InActive&bid=238168366
  9. President Trump: "The biggest risk that we have is mail-in ballots... It is a much easier thing for a foreign power -- whether it's Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, many others, people, countries you wouldn't expect -- it's much easier for them to forge ballots & send them in." =================================== S.V. Dáte @svdate · 10h This is a huge, huge, HUGE lie. The eaisest elections to steal are those on electronic machines. Paper ballots are by definition easy to audit and investigate.
  10. Renato Mariotti @renato_mariotti · 1h Trump has figured out that he can make absurd proclamations that cannot come to pass, and the media will repeat them. Even if journalists include an explanation that he cannot legally accomplish what he proclaims, Trump gets the headline. Please stop rewarding this deception.
  11. NBC Politics @NBCPolitics BREAKING: Pres. Trump signs executive orders for coronavirus relief after negotiations with Democrats in Congress reach an impasse. Democrats have promised to file a legal challenge, citing Congress' constitutional authority to determine federal spending.
  12. Barry R McCaffrey @mccaffreyr3 · 17h Trump and his political agent the POSTMASTER GENERAL are pulling apart the US Postal Service authorized by the Constitution. How can Republicans in Congress allow this to happen? 630,000 angry employees. Rural America in peril without USPS.
  13. Laurence Tribe @tribelaw · 11h Trump’s Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and his wife, Aldona Wos, nominated to become our ambassador to Canada, own between $30 million and $75 million of assets in competitors to the US Postal Service. No problem there, right?

  15. "Friday Night Massacre" at US Postal Service: Postmaster General boots top brass ahead of election The Postmaster General — a major Trump donor — suddenly ousted the Postal Service's top officials "Government watchdogs, Democratic lawmakers, and pro-democracy advocates declared it a "Friday Night Massacre" for the U.S. Postal Service after news broke in a classic end-of-the-week dump that Louis DeJoy—a major GOP donor to President Donald Trump and the recently appointed Postmaster General—had issued a sweeping overhaul of the agency, including the ouster of top executives from key posts and the reshuffling of more than two dozen other officials and operational managers. "Trump is actively sabotaging the election under our noses—this isn't theoretical, it's happening RIGHT NOW." — ......Twenty-three postal executives were reassigned or displaced, the new organizational chart shows. Analysts say the structure centralizes power around DeJoy, a former logistics executive and major ally of President Trump, and de-emphasizes decades of institutional postal knowledge. All told, 33 staffers included in the old postal hierarchy either kept their jobs or were reassigned in the restructuring, with five more staffers joining the leadership from other roles. Already under fire for recent policy changes at the USPS that mail carriers from within and outside critics have denounced as a sabotage effort to undermine the Postal Service broadly as well as disrupt efforts to carry out mail-in voting for November's election amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the moves unveiled late Friday were viewed as an overt assault on democracy and a calculated opportunity to boost Republicans' long-held dream of undercutting or privatizing the government-run mail service while also boosting their election prospects in the process......... 80 congressional lawmakers who sent a letter to DeJoy earlier in the day expressing "deep concerns" about operational changes he has made for mail carriers that have delayed deliveries and lowered standards. "It is vital that the U.S. Postal Service not reduce mail delivery times, which could harm rural communities, seniors, small businesses, and millions of Americans who rely on the mail for critical letters and packages," the letter stated. "Eliminating overtime and directing postal workers to leave mail on the floor of postal facilities will erode confidence in the Postal Service and drive customers away, resulting in even worse financial conditions in the future."......... chair of the House subcommittee which has oversight for the USPS, said what DeJoy is trying to pass off as simple organizational restructuring is actually "a Trojan Horse" designed to destroy one of the nation's most trusted and valued institutions from within. Connolly on Friday night called it, "Deliberate sabotage to disrupt mail service on the eve of the election—an election that hinges on mail-in ballots."........ https://www.salon.com/2020/08/08/friday-night-massacre-at-us-postal-service-postmaster-general-boots-top-brass-ahead-of-election_partner/

  20. NY AG James @NewYorkStateAG · 5h To be clear, no "charity" registered in NYS, including the @NRA , can dissolve and relocate to another state without the approval of my office or of the Supreme Court of NY. As long as our lawsuit continues, the NRA must stay right where it is & answer for their deep-rooted fraud.
