About Those Executive Orders

Three of the four ‘Executive Orders’ Trump signed weren’t actually Executive Orders. Read the whole thing at Crooks & Liars, but basically this was another con during his break from playing golf.

As for the boost in unemployment payments, he is using FEMA emergency funds which means the states have to come up with $100 to get $300 more from FEMA. States and local governments are going broke dealing with the pandemic and and economic slow down.

He is suspending collection of withholding taxes, but you still owe them and have to pay them by the end of the year. This is an attack on Medicare and Social Security, and he flat stated he wants to stop funding those programs if he gets reelected.

Yes. I tweeted a link to this.

One thing that Dottard & co are doing, is making damned sure postal voting is as difficult as possible. But most MAGA morons don’t get the real problem with the slow dismantling of the USPS.

The Lincoln project have been all over Dottard for a few Months now. This is their latest and, as all have been so far, it’s pretty accurate.

And this on Raw Story regarding States suing the officials involved:

I saw an update on the USPS on Twitter. Trucks were seen removing Mailboxes in NYC. USPS claim it’s simply “routine maintenance”. Other’s have posted images from other States also.

Given that Trump has stated openly that what is going on with the Postal Service is screw with the election, he and his minions are in violation of state election laws. Trump can’t pardon state conviction and his new Postmaster General may be serving time in multiple states, one after another. New Jersey is already looking at it.

That ad that the Lincoln Project posted is from Vote Vets, an organization of actual US veterans who are pissed off. I’m in the First Congressional District of Florida. Florida-1 has more veterans than any other Congressional District in the county.

They have had to halt picking up the boxes because people are raising hell about it all over the country.

i knew we had a lot of vets but i didn’t realize we were #1.

thank you, new jersey! what time i have been spending on the internet lately i’ve spent watching the usps wrangling.it’s probably the only thing that has happened during all the trump years that has actually given me some tiny small hope that the republican party might actually possibly maybe perhaps self-destruct.

Eglin AFB, Hurlburt Field, Duke Field, NAS Pensacola, Whiting Field, Ranger Camp, 7th Special Forces Group – all Navy pilots, all Air Force and Navy navigators, all Air Force and Navy helicopter pilots, EOD personnel, all Rangers work or train in this area, and many retire here. Air Force enlisted widows have a retirement community (Bob Hope Village) just outside Eglin.

E-Script is a mail order pharmacy associated with Tricare which is the military health insurance. They send meds by mail with a minimum co-pay. There are a number of major mail order pharmacies associated with AARP and other groups. Retirees use the mail as do the guys who are pulling overseas tours. Mess with the USPS and the troops stationed overseas can’t vote.

Yeah. I tweeted about the overseas military personnel & retirees, many of whom probably vote republican. “Cutting off your nose to spite your face!” or “Stupid is as stupid does”.🤷‍♂️😈

Anyway, I tweeted your comments & a link to this thread. We’ll see how that goes.🙄

FL has one more dottard endorsing moron in prison (or about to be). I’ve lost count how many that is now.🤔

Oh… And this, for the ultimate irony and to prove once and for all, dottard is a complete moron!

And he requested the ballots from FL for himself & Melania. They are already in trouble for voter fraud for doing that.

Trump can’t use Mar-a-Lago as an address because it is not a residence, it is a business, thanks to the zoning change on the property made by Donald J Trump when he bought it. He can’t legally stay there more than three months a year, which means it isn’t his permanent address. If the local supervisor of elections had a guts he would have refused to send the ballots and filed a fraud complaint with the state attorney.

Without the postal service you can’t get anything on your overseas tours. Imagine depending on the Iraqi or Afghan post office. Image paying the rates for a Euro post office. When my Mom visited my little brother in Hong Kong she used the US military extension to the US Postal Service (FPO) to send stuff back to the states rather than dealing with the airline and then customs. (This was a benefit she had as the dependent of a retired military member.)
