It would be GREAT if the MSM reported the FACTs
The USPS is NOT like any other Agency
They are REQUIRED to pay the Govt BILLIONS A YEAR
I’m telling you DC is playing games both the White House & Congress
...yes increased rates & services means more revenue but the obligations remain
They furloughed a fuckton of people to get the overhead down & make their “books” look better
USPS STILL has to pay the US Treasury BILLIONs (put a pin in it)
They are required to pay the Government BILLIONs
Lawmakers, both parties & the presidents ALL use the USPS as their piñata & as a bargain chip.
It’s FOUL but predictable
the USPS by LAW is required to pay BILLIONS to the Govt
“USPS’s required payments in fiscal year 2016 include a statutory required payment of $5.8 billion to prefund retiree health benefits.”
FY 2018 USPS generated $10.5B in revenue v $5B to operate, making them profitable overall.
But BECAUSE of the LAW USPS has to pay the Government- if you sense my frustration that’s intended
Congress has known about this UNFAIR LAW FOR YEARS
The issue is who the president is & what he’s prone to do.
He’s PISSED that USPS & Amazon inked a deal that made the USPS flush with liquidity
Yet the USPS by LAW must fund theirs & pay the Government
It’s known colloquially as “an uneven playing field” those are the FACTs not an opinion
The problem is Trump is a sociopath & he’s transactional
He’s also guided by revenge.
He’s PISSED the stimulus had a $10B loan & loan forgiveness...
That Trump is an evil genius and he had the forethought to make OUR USPS go under before the Nov 2020 election, show me a memo, letter anything to prove that shit.
I am TIRED of conspiracies - stick to the FACTs
You GUYS are awesome - thank you for everything you do to serve us. I very much appreciate what y’all do.
“U.S. airline industry had 452,668 full time employees in 2019...equivalent of more than $110,000 per employee. That would amount to more than $69 billion if applied to the Postal Service’s 630,000 employees”
PMG appointed 9 Governors that are appointed by the President w/ the advice & consent of the Senate
Top Republican fundraiser and Trump ally named postmaster general, giving president new influence over Postal Service https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/top-republican-fundraiser-and-trump-ally-to-be-named-postmaster-general-giving-president-new-influence-over-postal-service-officials-say/2020/05/06/25cde93c-8fd4-11ea-8df0-ee33c3f5b0d6_story.html
Trump wants to pressure the Postal Service to raise prices on Amazon and other online retailers.https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/top-republican-fundraiser-and-trump-ally-to-be-named-postmaster-general-giving-president-new-influence-over-postal-service-officials-say/2020/05/06/25cde93c-8fd4-11ea-8df0-ee33c3f5b0d6_story.html
but now it’s more pressing because @USPS is under a sustained attck both by Trump & the GOP both inside & outside of the Agency. Good job @senatemajldr
The USPS union of carriers needs to do a media blitz
And you really should read last Friday’s CNN article
So @USPS employees should follow your agency’s CFRs & the Law. If you don‘t trust your USPS supervisor- see next tweet
1) Congress House OverSight
2) OSC https://osc.gov
3) Hire counsel that specializes in whistleblowing
but leaking isn’t the lawful route https://twitter.com/File411/status/1247299907108700161?s=20
International Drug Cartel uses USPS to move thousands of lbs of cocaine, launder money, mail illicit drugs (or diamonds) and yet USPS doesn’t/3
/fin, for now
and it’s freaking exhausting

Ergo the Sept 17th hearing is still kind of expedited
2nd when people besmirch OUR USPS understand those are fighting words.
Consistently the USPS “delivers” irrespective of what’s thrown at them. I am tired of seeing this Agency being used as a cudgel.
a @USPS was murdered simply for doing her job.
It would be nice if the MSM would perhaps focus on what USPS employees face, the danger of their job
she was shot dead over mail delivery https://twitter.com/File411/status/1256286715158945796?s=20
Do you understand that these crude pipe bombs could have killed numerous USPS employees, as the bombs made their way through our complex postal system infrastructure? https://twitter.com/File411/status/1158516220687204354?s=20
“...delivered 1.9 billion prescriptions to Americans' mailboxes, and nearly 100 percent of all Veterans Affairs prescriptions...I am concerned about the impact of the July 10 delayed mail directive and request you rescind that element of the policy.”
-significant changes to Postal Service procedures.
-“PMG’s Expectations and Plan” details a number of operational changes..
-DeJoy owns >$29-38M in USPS competitors

particularly, the timing of these reported changes and your failure to adequately address them are unacceptable”

I’m in the DMV (DC MD VA) shortly after Memorial Day we went 6+ days sans mail
I assumed my stalker had filed a “stop delivery” on our primary addy (years ago she posted on a social page bragging how she’s done this to others)
2nd time July 11-22 no mail
FTR our carrier is a great guy https://www.peters.senate.gov/postal
It’s not exactly forthcoming and fails to address the numerous questions & issues raised in the 7/17 letter. I mean well duh it reads lawyerly
“It is critical that the Postal Service’s delivery standards be kept in mind when informing voters how to successfully participate in an election using the mail, and when state and local election official...”
Postal Service overhauls leadership as Democrats press for investigation of mail delays
-displacing the two top executives overseeing day-to-day operations
-Twenty-three postal executives were reassigned or displaced https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/08/07/postal-service-investigation-dejoy/
-DeJoy and his wife, Aldona Wos, the nominee for ambassador to Canada
-$30.1M and $75.3M in assets in USPS competitors or contractors
-mail processing contractor XPO Logistics —acquired DeJoy’s company New Breed Logistics in 2014 https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/08/07/postal-service-investigation-dejoy/
DeJoy & Wife own $30.1M to $75.3M in assets in USPS competitors or contractors, like UPS and the trucking company J.B. Hunt..Mr DeJoy met all ethics requirements regarding disclosure, divestment, and recusal from decisions in which he may have a conflict?
@USPS is not like any other Federal Agency
8/7/20- look at yesterday’s PR
“FFCRA provides the means for companies and other government entities to receive federal reimbursement for
payment of this FFCRA leave...Postal Service is not eligible for such reimbursement”
-net loss for the quarter was $2.2B compared to a net loss of $2.3 billion for the same quarter last year.
-controllable loss for the quarter was $1.5B v compared to a controllable loss of $1.1B
-across the board overtime cuts
-hiring freeze (in the face of unprecedented increase need)
-moratorium of using mechanical scanners/sorters NOW >75% done by hand
Read page 2 closely. @realDonaldTrump & DeJoy are fucking with people’s lives
Like I said you can bring the horse to water but you can’t force it to drink.
So I’ll be in my corner quietly churning out research & facts

That Aldana Z. Wos nomination to be our Country’s Ambassador to Canada is fucking insane, right?

Mr DeJoy have to run @USPS beyond he bigly donated to @realDonaldTrump ?
Ms Aldona Z Wos as our Ambassador to Canada?
NONE beyond they donated to @potus
There’s nothing magic in what I am doing.
It’s ALL 100% public information - Twitter is a hobby.
Imagine what I’m like when I’m paid by my employer to research & test a legal argument
So a back up and a back up of that back up & another back up - yup 3 levels.
Any who I have some baking & drone flying lessons that I promise for my family
At this point DeJoy should be subpoenaed and Congress should send out preservation record request because this administration has a tendency of making things disappear https://twitter.com/File411/status/1291959306703839232?s=20

Notwithstanding good to see @MarkWarner stepping in https://twitter.com/MarkWarner/status/1292886547868639238?s=20

“the request for $25B came from @USPS.. asked Congress for these funds NOT to implement “universal mail-in voting,”... delivery standards during coronavirus supported unanimously...the Board of Governors—all of whom were appointed by President Trump”
“during a meeting with Speaker Nancy Pelosi & Senate Leader Chuck Schumer on August 5, 2020, you seemed to admit that, in fact, you had personally approved certain limitations on the use of overtime, but you failed to explain what those limitations are”
“the Postal Service remains fully committed to fulfilling our role in the electoral process by doing everything we can to handle and deliver Election Mail, including ballots, in a timely manner consistent with our operational standard”
“recognize that there have been unintended consequences related to these efforts that have impacted overall service levels...working feverishly to address service problems.”
