There are still some of Donald Trump’s supporters left embedded in the foundation of PrJoe Biden’s White House. They have been trying to weaken America’s foundation, our institutions, and continue the terrorist-in-chief’s dark plans. Postmaster Louis DeJoy is one of them. So why is he still in office and what else has he been doing?
‘Every postal expert in the country and across the globe really knows that you don’t slow down service and raise prices at the same time and expect customers to stick around. People will use the Postal Service less, revenue will decline and then they’ll need to make more cuts. So essentially, you’re sending the post office into a death spiral.
At the beginning of the summer in 2020, Trump plucked a man who owned stocks in and then CEO’d a competitor of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to be the Postmaster General. The man immediately, set about tearing down our postal service by dismantling and discarding million-dollar sorting machines and hauling off our familiar navy blue community postal boxes.
The idea was to slow down the incoming 2020 presidential election mail-in-ballots. When he was caught, DeJoy backed off for a while, but once America’s eyes were off of him, he sneaked back in to implement his terrible 10-year-plan on October 1.
A president cannot fire the postmaster general. Instead, there was a panel of appointed advisory board members under the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to ride herd over the USPS. Unfortunately, Trump’s people stacked that group against the Democrats, too:
The complaint read, according to CBS News.
‘[The federal lawsuit said that] the federal oversight agency didn’t fully vet the broad-ranging plan before the USPS moved forward with it.’
It also alleged that Postmaster General DeJoy had moved forward with the 10-year plan despite failing to get a review of its entire scope from the PRC:
‘[The complaint said DeJoy’s plan would] transform virtually every aspect of the Postal Service.’
The PRC said it would “establish a docket for the complaint.” Meanwhile, supporters of the USPS wrote in an email:
‘[The lawsuit] has no legal or factual merit, and the Postal Service intends to move to dismiss it pursuant to the rules of the Postal Regulatory Commission. The Postal Service has and will continue to follow all statutory and regulatory requirements as we move forward on implementing our strategic plan to restore service excellence and financial sustainability.’
The complaint continued:
‘To date, the Postal Service has only submitted two requests for an advisory opinion [from the PRC], which represent only a small portion of the Plan’s scope.’
PRC commissioner Ashley Poling said in a July PRC report:
‘I do not believe that the Postal Service has proven its case for reducing service standards for all Americans.’
Even though some of the PRC was concerned, DeJoy’s plan to slow down four out of 10 pieces of first-class mail moved onward. He claimed it would save the USPS money.
The suit also alleged “other aspects of the plan weren’t reviewed by the PRC, nor was the public given the opportunity to comment:”
‘With reliance on timely mail service still at historical levels, including by low-income, rural and elderly populations, as well as every level of government, the Postal Service’s decisions have critical consequences felt across the country.’
‘Now, more than ever, it is necessary for the Commission to carefully examine the full breadth of the Postal Service’s sweeping changes, and to afford the public the opportunity to comment on them, as Congress intended.’
The attorneys general who were named in the lawsuit came from:
‘California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Rhode Island, Washington, and Washington, D.C. ‘
