    Breitbart ^ | 4-4-2020 | John Nolte
    Democrats want to mail every American a 2020 ballot and have people come to your house to pick up those ballots. Can you imagine? Can you imagine mailing out some 150 million ballots to every registered voter and having some politicized “organizer” pick them up? “Sir, I’m here to pick up your presidential ballot.” “I haven’t filled it out. You know, I’m not really paying attention.” “That’s no problem. Why don’t you let me help you with that.” Seriously, can you imagine? Or how about the very idea of these “organizers” in possession and in control of who knows how...

    Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, postal workers have been on the front lines, considered "essential workers" who must continue to do their jobs as usual while others stay home. But some lawmakers are warning that without more support, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) could completely shut down in the next few months, threatening the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of Americans.

    Former Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton called on Congress to “make voting by mail the norm” with “free postage” as a result of public health concerns due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. President Donald Trump said earlier this week that he expects the current national emergency to last through July or August. The White House has not yet said what, if any, preparations might be needed for the November election.

    SALT LAKE CITY — Drug traffickers often use the post office and private shipping companies to send opioids, including fentanyl, to people across the country. Now, Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., have introduced a bill to curtail the circulation of illicit drugs through the mail. The bipartisan legislation introduced Thursday would require the U.S. Postal Service to develop a comprehensive plan to combat the use of the mail in illicit drug distribution, identify areas for improvement, enhance coordination across departments and proactively meet new challenges

    Larimer County property owners have received phony notices vis U.S. Mail stating a lien has been placed on their property for non-payment of taxes.

    The United States Postal Service has introduced a new service that you may — or may not — find useful. Informed Delivery lets you preview the front exterior of incoming mail on your computer or phone; you can also track packages and leave delivery instructions for those packages. This isn’t something that the USPS has developed just for its customers. According to an FAQ on the post office’s site, the USPS is already creating digital images of the front of your letter-sized mail; however, it is now making those images available to customers before the mail is actually delivered. Once...

    The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat.

    NY Post ^ | 12/28/2018 | Yaron Steinbuch
    The Royal Mail got a good licking for planning to release a stamp marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day by using an image of US forces landing about 8,500 miles from Normandy Beach, according to a report. Captioned “Allied soldiers and medics wade ashore,” the stamp was meant to depict the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944, in France — but was actually taken in Dutch New Guinea in what is modern-day Indonesia, according to the BBC. The stamp — which was expected to be released next year in a “Best of British” collection — sparked a backlash on social...

    The fake news of the day has been disingenuously pretending that any those persons to whom the fake bombs were addressed were in any danger. They were not. Who sends bombs to people who do not open their own mail? As Roger L. Simon wrote, it doesn't matter who built those little fake not-pipe bombs, the intent is clear. The message? See, it isn't only the left that is vicious and violent. The right is violent too! Whoever is guilty of perpetrating this latest stunt is irrelevant; their intent is obvious. Demonstrate that there are lunatics on the right too!...

    The crude bombs sent to several liberal politicians and news networks this week were sent through a major Unites Sates Postal Service mailing facility in South Florida, it's been revealed. All 10 bombs sent to the Clintons, former President Obama, CNN and other prominent Democrats are all believed to have come through the Opa-locka processing and distribution center, CNN reports. FBI and canine units were deployed to the facility Thursday as the search continues for the person or persons behind the bombs. The U.S. Post Office Royal Palm Processing & Distribution Center in Opa-locka is the main mailing facility in...

    Jersey voters, take note. There's a big change in the state's voting laws that you'll need to pay attention to under a measure signed by Gov. Phil Murphy designed to expand voter participation. Critics say the new law is sparking voter confusion. And county clerks say it's forced them to scramble to comb voting rolls to meet its requirements on short notice. The big change is about mail-in ballots. You have always had the option of mailing in your ballot. You could get a ballot if you applied for one by the deadline, then mailed it in or dropped it...
