The manic media has turned itself into an echo chamber for Democrats advancing the conspiracy theory that President Trump is deliberately removing mailboxes in order to cripple the postal service’s ability to handle mail-in voting.
The truth is, President Trump is only following the lead of former President Barack Obama who had at least 14,000 mailboxes removed during his administration. Funny that Joe Biden was Obama’s vice president during those years and had nothing negative to say about it at that time.
Now? Biden is singing a different tune.
Joe Biden tonight on reports of mailbox removals: "I wonder if you're outside trying to hold down your mailboxes. They’re going around literally with tractor trailers picking up mailboxes. You oughta go online and check out what they're doing in Oregon. I mean, it's bizarre!"

The fact is the postal service is bleeding money racking up $2 Billion in losses during the last quarter alone.
Finding ways to save money is paramount to continuing operations and eliminating underutilized mailboxes saves mileage and manhours from the collection process.
USPS spokesperson made a statement to the Hill explaining that the Postal Service has for decades installed and removed its “iconic blue” collection mailboxes based on the volume of mail received to each.
She said that low-volume mailboxes are a financial drag on the Postal Service, which lost more than $2 billion in the second quarter.
“It is a fluid process and figures can vary from day-to-day,” Frum said. “Historically, mail boxes have been removed for lack of use and installed in growth areas.”
“When a collection box consistently receives very small amounts of mail for months on end, it costs the Postal Service money in fuel and workhours for letter carriers to drive to the mailbox and collect the mail. Removing the box is simply good business sense in that respect. It is important to note that anyone with a residential or business mailbox can use it as a vehicle to send outgoing mail.”
Truth be told, the USPS has been losing money for decades.
In 2009, President Barack Obama criticized the postal service for being eclipsed by private sector competitors.
According to a report in the Blaze, the Obama-Biden administration considered closing nearly 3,700 post office locations, and proposed cutting 12,000 postal jobs.
Obama-Biden left the cupboard bare of personal protective equipment and ventilators. Democrats blamed Trump after China unleashed the “virus helpful to Democrats”revealed the depleted inventories.
Likewise, President Trump was accused of running concentration camps along our southern border when CBP was simply continuing the same policies and utilizing the same facilities that Obama-Biden setup and operated.
Former Manchurian president Barack Obama appeared on his former campaign adviser, David Plouffe’s podcast this past Friday to add his false and divisive slant…
“What we’ve seen in a way that is unique to modern political history is a president who is explicit in trying to discourage people from voting. What we’ve never seen before is a president say, ‘I’m going to try to actively kneecap the postal service to encourage voting and I will be explicit about the reason I’m doing it.'”
“That’s sort of unheard of.”
Unheard of because never before had any political party demanded universal vote by mail without providing adequate precautions and using a broken delivery system (USPS).
