When I see Barack Obama out there meddling in the election, there’s a word I want to say.
I won’t say it.
But one of these days… one of these days, I’m gonna say it.
For now I’ll just say: “he should go back to Africa.”
Former President Barack Obama took on President Donald Trump’s attempts to stall funding for the United States Postal Service in a podcast published Friday, slamming his successor’s opposition to the much-needed funds as a craven attempt to boost his chances of winning in November.
Obama, in a podcast with David Plouffe, his former campaign manager, took on the Trump administration in direct terms, including calling out Vice President Mike Pence by name.
“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,” Obama said. “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.’”
Obama added: “That’s sort of unheard of.”
If he’s admitting this will boost Trump’s chances at winning the election, then he’s admitting that mail-in voting is good for the Democrats.
Why would mail-in voting be good for the Democrats, unless they’re going to commit fraud?
Doing a mail-in election is simply insane. It is not feasible. It would take months to get the results, and whoever won, no one would trust it.
Obama is referring to ongoing negotiations between Democrats and Republicans on the latest coronavirus stimulus bill. Democrats are packing a proposal by the postal service’s Board of Governors that calls for $25 billion in funding for the beleaguered federal entity.
Trump, as part of his long running campaign against mail-in voting during the coronavirus pandemic, tied the postal service funding to voting, telling Fox Business that if the postal service does not receive the additional funding, then he believes the Post Office won’t be able to handle the influx of mail-in ballots in the upcoming election.
“They want three and a half billion dollars for something that’ll turn out to be fraudulent, that’s election money basically. They want three and a half billion dollars for the mail-in votes. Universal mail-in ballots. They want $25 billion, billion, for the Post Office. Now they need that money in order to make the Post Office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots,” Trump said, repeating his false claims that mail-in voting would be “fraudulent.”
“But if they don’t get those two items that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting because they’re not equipped to have it,” Trump added.
Obama’s interview with Plouffe was taped Thursday, likely after the President’s Fox Business interview earlier that morning.
Trump, in a briefing later in the day, said he wouldn’t veto a bill with funding for the postal service, but still continued to argue that increased mail-in voting would lead to significant fraud, a claim that is not backed up by evidence.
Trump’s focus on the postal service comes months after he appointed Louis DeJoy, one of his longtime allies and fundraisers, to be postmaster general.
The evidence is that it happens!
Ballot collecting, also called ballot harvesting, is characterized by the gathering and submitting of absentee or mail-in voter ballots by third-party individuals, volunteers or workers, rather than submission by the voters themselves directly to ballot collection sites. It occurs in some areas of the U.S. where voting by mail is common, but is illegal in some other states. The phrase ballot harvesting has been criticized as being negatively loaded by some observers.
It just happened in 2018! People are going to jail!
NPR, July 30, 2019:
Prosecutors in North Carolina filed new felony charges against a Republican political operative accused of ballot tampering in a congressional election in 2018.
Leslie McCrae Dowless was charged Tuesday with two counts of felony obstruction of justice, perjury, solicitation to commit perjury, conspiracy to obstruct justice and illegal possession of absentee ballots, according to a statement by Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman.
The charges relate to the tainted 9th congressional district election last year in which Republican Mark Harris led in the unofficial vote tally by a margin of about 900 votes over Democrat Dan McCready. But the election results were overturned by the state after an investigation into an absentee ballot operation on Harris’ behalf suggested that Dowless had improperly collected and possibly tampered with ballots.
They overturned the election because of mail-in ballot voter fraud by a ballot harvester!
And the ni– the nimby-pimpy African Barack Obama wants to tell you this is a conspiracy theory and he just really, really loves mail-in voting because of democracy!
And it’s happened a lot more than just in North Carolina in 2018. This has been happening for years! Every time they do large-scale mail-in voting, there’s fraud.
A similar situation happened in New Jersey in 2013.
Heritage Foundation, September 24, 2018:
Voter fraud is an ongoing problem in America. For those who doubt, look no further than a new case out of New Jersey.
On Thursday, federal officials charged a New Jersey woman with “promoting a voter bribery scheme.” Lizaida Camis allegedly offered Hoboken voters $50 in exchange for applying to receive mail-in ballots, and then casting them in favor of candidates for whom Camis worked.
Camis’ alleged fraud took place in 2013, but the filing of charges offers a timely reminder of the pressing need to ensure the integrity of our elections.
According to the complaint against her, Camis approached at least three voters with her offer of money for votes. New Jersey law permits mail-in voting, provided that voters complete an application and submit it to county officials.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey concluded that Camis brought those applications to voters and then delivered the completed forms to the county clerk’s office.
Look – I’m just going to post a screenshot of the entire page, just so this sinks in.
In New York they just had a primary election that had a large portion of mail-in votes, and the loser didn’t accept the results – because of mail-in voting! He said there were “irregularities”!
In the 2007 book “The Politics of Voter Fraud,” author Lorraine C. Minnite wrote:
“The lack of in-person, at-the-polls accountability makes absentee ballots the tool of choice for those inclined to commit fraud,” the Florida Department of Law Enforcement concluded in 1998, after a mayoral election in Miami was thrown out when officials learned that “vote brokers” had signed hundreds of phony absentee ballots.
The Democrats are literally pushing for legalizing ballot harvesting in the states where it isn’t legal!
Right now, the Democrats are trying to force through a bill to legalize ballot harvesting in every state!
Think about it!
This is not some theory!
This is the biggest scam in history you’re watching unfold!
And Bill Mitchell isn’t around to tell you about it – because they banned him!
These people are PIRATES!
I’ve been telling you about this. Tucker Carlson has been telling you about this. Few others have mentioned it. Trump is focusing on it, thankfully.
But this is it right here.
We cannot win with mail-in ballots. They have their entire fraud machine ready to roll, and it’s important enough to them that they send out the big gun Barack to feed it to the goyim.
