Meanwhile, the truth is that Obama, who meddled in the 2016 election but lost, is now meddling in the 2020 election to try to return the Democrats to power
Former President Barack Obama is now slamming President Donald Trump for trying to “actively kneecap the Postal Service to affect mail-in voting in the 2020 election and is urging lawmakers and citizens to take actions to “protect the integrity” of the upcoming election.”
His accusations would be downright laughable were it not for the fact that it is the Democrats who are trying to compromise “the integrity of the election”.
It is Obama’s wife, Michelle, who through her initiative ‘When We All Vote’ who is masterminding the universal Mail-In Vote for Election 2020—under the phony cover of being “non-partisan”.
The Democrats, hell-bent-for-leather to return to power, whose city mayors and state governors can’t or won’t protect their citizens from anarchy
How can activist Michelle Obama, who is leading the unprecedented universal Mail-In Vote claim to be “non-partisan”?
The Democrats, hell-bent-for-leather to return to power, whose city mayors and state governors can’t or won’t protect their citizens from anarchy, know they can’t pull of an election victory without out the Mail-In Vote, which leaves plenty of room for fraud.
The Democrats excel in the fine art of The Masquerade. It was earlier in the week when they decreed Senator Kamala Harris would be VP on the Joe Biden presidential ticket, passing off Harris as a middle-of-the road, moderate Democrat!

“Obama, speaking on the podcast of his former campaign manager David Plouffe, was responding to recent comments by Trump, who said earlier this week that holding up emergency funds for the U.S. Postal Service would ensure that the post office would be unable to “take all of these millions and millions of ballots.”
“Obama, responding to those remarks, accused Republicans of having tried for years “to discourage people’s votes from counting in all kinds of ways,” like voter identification laws and gerrymandering, but said Trump’s threats were “unique to modern history.”
This from an ex-president, who along with his protege Hillary Clinton, defiantly refuses to believe the result of the 2016 election that saw Donald Trump elected as president with 63-million votes!
Obama and his surrogates are counting on people being too afraid of catching the pandemic to come out to the polls and vote in person
“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 said of Trump, who has pushed for in-person voting.
“That’s sort of unheard of, right? And we also have not had an election in the midst of a pandemic that is still deadly and killing a lot of people.”

“In the fall of 1918, the United States was approaching a midterm election like none other before. (history.com)
“Not only were President Woodrow Wilson and his fellow Democrats trying to keep control of Congress during the home stretch of World War I—they were trying to do so in the middle of one of the deadliest pandemics in history.
“The first wave of the so-called Spanish flu had begun that spring, when the first official cases were reported at Camp Funston, a U.S. Army training camp at Fort Riley, Kansas. The second wave, which emerged in September 1918 at an army training camp and naval facility near Boston, would be far worse. This time, the flu spread quickly into the civilian population of Boston and other cities on the East Coast. In the month of October alone, a total of 195,000 Americans died.
Spanish flu had begun that spring
“As scientists raced to find a vaccine, public health officials turned to time-tested methods of social distancing and quarantine. State and local officials around the country banned public gatherings, closing schools, churches, theaters, bars and other spots where people typically met in groups.
“Due to these widespread bans, many candidates in the 1918 midterms could not campaign in the typical way. Barred in many cases from holding rallies or speaking events, they were forced to rely on less direct forms of communication, including seeking out newspaper coverage or sending campaign literature through the mail.
“Since local and state authorities largely controlled the measures taken to control the spread of the virus, voting in the 1918 midterms looked very different depending on what part of the country you were in.
“By November, when the flu was generally waning in the eastern part of the country, it was ramping up in the West. In Sacramento, California, some poll sites couldn’t open, according to the Sacramento Bee, because “there were not enough citizens who were well enough.” In San Francisco, health officials issued an order in late October mandating that people wear face masks while in public or in a group of two or more people. All poll workers and voters were required to wear masks on Election Day, prompting the San Francisco Chronicle to call it “the first masked ballot ever known in the history of America.”
Adding billions of dollars to the Postal Service budget
“By contrast, things were getting back to normal on the East Coast. Public health officials in Washington, D.C. made the decision to reopen churches on October 31, and schools and theaters on November 4, the day before the midterm election. In New York City, health commissioner Dr. Royal S. Copeland similarly began rolling back restrictions in early November, with businesses resuming their normal operating hours by Election Day.
“Despite the risks involved, there appears to have been little public discussion about simply postponing the election that year.”
Back to Obama:
“So in that circumstance, the thing I’m most worried about is … how do we protect the integrity of the election process? How do we make sure that people’s votes are counted? How do we police and monitor how state officials are setting up polling places and ensuring that every vote is counted?” he continued. (NBC)
“Trump has so far resisted congressional Democrats’ efforts to add billions of dollars to the Postal Service budget to help fund the extra work needed to process more voting by mail as a result of the coronavirus pandemic — although he later suggested he would not veto such funding if it were part of the next coronavirus relief package.
“Trump has repeatedly claimed that mail-in voting, used in the United States since the Civil War, invites fraud. There’s no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the United States, according to numerous investigations and studies.
Meanwhile, the truth is that Obama, who meddled in the 2016 election but lost, is now meddling in the 2020 election to try to return the Democrats to power.
