Facebook has achieved its power—and Mark Zuckerberg has built his wealth—by bulldozing competition, exploiting our private information, undermining our democracy, and tilting the playing field against everyone else.

"To my friends and family in the Christian community... you know deep down in your Sunday school hearts what kind of man Donald Trump is."

The Postmaster General is the perfect test of Congressional power. He should be subpoenaed immediately and when he resists, he should be arrested and held by the House until he testifies. They have that power.

Taylor Swift Bashes Trump For ‘Calculated Dismantling Of USPS’ “He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president,” she wrote.

Where is Moscow Mitch? We should know his location 24/7. Like a serial child molester.

How did Trey Gowdy go from an underperforming lawyer to an underperforming congressman to an underperforming lawyer for the president to an underperforming Fox News host?

Here’s the contact info for the USPS Board of Governors. Inundate them.

Obstructing mail is a federal offense, but who is going to prosecute Trump in Barr’s DOJ?

I don’t say this lightly: when we escape this Trump hell, America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission. It should be made up of independent prosecutors who look at those who enabled a corrupt president. Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election.

Remember all those idiots that Rush Limpballs convinced to cross-over and register “Democrat” so they could nominate Bernie instead of Joe? Those same idiots are now cryin’ foul because they received ballots with only Democrat candidates on ‘em. MAGA morons.

Hard not to notice that just about all of these reductions in sorting capacity are happening in areas that historically vote Democrat.
