Your members of Congress aren’t mind readers; only way you can effectuate change is by getting in touch with them and voicing your opinion.
Even though I’m not in her district (as I did with Speaker Pelosi back before she announced impeachment of Fat Nixon) I still called Carolyn Maloney’s office on Friday to find out what the plan was to hold MAGA political operative Postmaster General Louis DeJoy accountable. Spoke to a gal named Betsy who was very nice and took down my concerns.

Cut to today and we find out Chairwoman Maloney has given DeJoy 24 hours to respond to a “request to appear.” We’ll see how he responds but keep in mind MAGAs always use subpoenas to line their birdcages.
I’ve been covering this story for weeks and STILL don’t have an answer as to why Atlanta Postmaster was replaced by “acting” PM Justin Henderson. I also wrote a piece outlining ways to fight ILLEGAL SABOTAGE—latest crime donald trump admitted to recently.
I’ll update this post tomorrow after DeJoy blows off Maloney’s letter and goes golfing with donald. Watch this space. 🔴

As for-profit media continues to fail us, it’s more important than ever to find reliable sources. Authentic storytelling exists—you just have to look for it. On this blog you’ll get ideas, not ideology. Sass with class. Reporting with rapport. Evidence with a touch of evil. You get the idea.
