Postal workers are sounding the alarm as mail sorting machines are removed from processing facilities
It's not just business as usual at the United States Postal Service.While President Trump is publicly saying he plans to block funding for the USPS so that Democrats can't achieve their goal of expanding mail-in voting across all states ahead of the November election, the Postal Service is also facing some internal changes.Vice News' Motherboard reported Thursday that USPS is quietly removing mail sorting machines — the very machines that are responsible for sorting ballots. There's no official explanation for the changes, and it's unclear why the machines would be removed rather than simply not used when not needed. The removals and planned removals are reportedly affecting several processing facilities across the U.S."It'll force the mail to be worked by human hands in sorting. Guarantees to STOP productivity," a Post Office source told The Washington Post's Jacqueline Alemany.

Biden says Trump's USPS funding opposition shows he 'doesn't want an election'
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is slamming recent comments from President Trump he says prove his opponent doesn't "want an election."

"Pure Trump," Biden said of these comments. "He doesn't want an election."The Biden campaign in a statement on Thursday also accused the president of "sabotaging a basic service that hundreds of millions of people rely upon, cutting a critical lifeline for rural economies and for delivery of medicines, because he wants to deprive Americans of their fundamental right to vote safely."In the Fox Business interview, Trump, who has asserted without evidence that increased mail-in voting during the coronavirus crisis would result in widespread voter fraud, had said that without the $25 billion for the USPS that Democrats want and that he is blocking, "you can't have universal mail-in voting, because they're not equipped to have it." "Pure Trump," Joe Biden says when asked about Pres. Trump's comments on U.S. Postal Service. "He doesn't want an election." https://t.co/JsAo4rBy2e pic.twitter.com/uZyScwGMfk -- ABC News (@ABC) August 13, 2020More stories from theweek.com QAnon is suddenly everywhere — whether people realize it or
