    Health authorities in Beijing said they haven’t been able to trace the source of the Chinese capital’s first local Omicron infection but indicated it might have arrived by international mail.Beijing announced the Omicron case on Saturday after the patient developed a low-grade fever on Friday and took a voluntary test that came back positive for Covid-19. Authorities sealed off the patient’s residential compound and office building, and launched contact-tracing efforts. Tests for more than 16,500 people identified as potentially being exposed to the patient came back negative, Pang Xinghuo, deputy director of the city’s municipal Center for Disease Control and...

    Delivery slowdowns at the U.S. Postal Service take effect Friday, and higher prices are soon to follow. The nation’s mail service is preparing to implement core components of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s 10-year plan for the agency, a program designed to cut costs and raise new revenue to fix its many financial problems. The Postal Service has struggled for years with financial losses due to declining mail use, and the coronavirus pandemic exposed more issues within the agency as it struggled to cope with an avalanche of e-commerce purchases, worker availability problems and a disorganized processing network. DeJoy, the controversial...

    Three New York residents face life in prison for their roles in the kidnapping of a U.S. postal worker who they accused of stealing a package containing drugs, federal prosecutors say. Mark Rogers, 38; Joseph Way, 36; and Rogers’ girlfriend, Tashara Levans, 37, all of Rochester, pleaded guilty to kidnapping in the November 2019 incident, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of New York announced in a Dec. 15 news release. The postal worker, identified in court documents as “Victim A,” was delivering mail when Rogers and Way confronted her about a package of cocaine they were expecting...

    "This change may result in mailed statements, new or replacement cards, and payments you mail, taking longer to arrive." - I received this message in my online bank account this evening. I have a different account that is required to mail me a monthly hard copy. Five years ago, that statement would arrive before the 10th. More recently, around the 15th. This month, already the 20th, and still no statement. Let's Go, Brandon!

  • USPS says it will deal with projected $160 billion loss by ... slowing down its delivery service

    The Blaze ^ | 19/1/21
    The United States Postal Service projects that it will have a $160 billion loss over the coming decade, so it needs to boost revenue and cut costs. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy thinks he has the answer: offer slower service. That's right, DeJoy's blueprint for making the USPS solvent includes cutting costs by slowing mail delivery for millions of Americans coupled with hoped-for increased revenues from postage rate hikes, CBS News reported. However, critics have been quick to point out that this will likely discourage people from using the Post Office. What's happening? Starting Friday, DeJoy said, the postal service will...
  • After Recall Election, Newsom Could Sign Bill to Make Automatic Vote-by-Mail Permanent

    Breitbart ^ | 09/14/2021 | Joel B Pollack
    California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) could sign a new bill making California’s “temporary” system of automatically sending vote-by-mail ballots to every registered voter in the state permanent, whether he is recalled in Tuesday’s election or not. The bill, AB 37, would make the emergency measures adopted in 2020, and later extended in February 2021, permanent. It has already passed both houses of the California state legislature, and merely awaits Newsom’s signature. He could sign it today; he could also sign it in the interim before the results of the recall election are certified Oct. 22, even if he is ousted.
  • 220,000 Member American Postal Workers Union Releases Statement Against Mandatory Vaccinations for Federal Employees

    CTH ^ | 7/28/21 | sundance
    One of the reasons why the federal mandate for vaccinations will fail will be the backlash and refusal compliance by the blue-collar workforce. While the U.S. ideological media will downplay the scale of power within the middle-class and blue-collar workforce, they know the true power exists. The team behind Biden might poke this bear to test a reaction, but they will not dare confront it directly. They know that. WE know that. The 220,000 members of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) released a statement saying the federal government has no business attempting to force vaccinate the workforce. This union...

    Washington D.C.—The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Postal Service and its inspection agency seeking records about a covert program to secretly comb through online posts of social media users before street protests, raising concerns about chilling the privacy and expressive activity of internet users. Under an initiative called Internet Covert Operations Program, analysts at the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), the Postal Service’s law enforcement arm, sorted through massive amounts of data created by social media users to surveil what they were saying and sharing, according to media reports.

Box as returned mail....BUT THE *RETURN* ADDRESS IS WRONG. We are NOT the senders! Can we make this clear that this sender is somehow putting our # on his labels and not his? He might be just 1 digit off but the P.O. is not paying attention.

    Hindsight is 20/20, and now numbers from the 2020 election show how Nevada made a mistake rushing to automatic mail ballots. Dirty voter rolls combined with automatic mail made the 2020 election a mess in Nevada.Concrete post-election data show that 92,367 mail ballots sent out by Clark County election officials came back as undeliverable. They had incorrect or outdated addresses.That means they were sent where the registered voter did not live. That means someone else could have snatched those misdirected live ballots. That means someone probably did.This unfortunate number is unwelcome considering President Joe Biden only carried Nevada by 33,596...

    Historic mail delays nationwide have made customers wait patiently for their bills, paychecks, and potentially life-saving prescription medications. Such issues might have been expected over the winter holiday season, but even in the month of March, Americans are still seeing the U.S. Postal Service beset by continuing delays in delivering the mail. Last week, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy apologized for those delays in a testimony before the House Oversight Committee, but attributed many of the problems to lack of financial stability and resources—later claiming that the postal system is “in a death spiral.”

    Mark Currie of Virginia had three checks snagged in postal delays in three months. In New Jersey, Lois Fitton says she was forced to pay interest on a credit card balance because the bill never arrived. Jim Rice says two insurance companies canceled policies for his property management business in Oklahoma after the payments got lost in the mail. As the service crisis at the U.S. Postal Service drags into its eighth month, complaints are reaching a fever pitch. Consumers are inundating members of Congress with stories of late bills — and the late fees they’ve absorbed as a result....

    Staff ReportState lawmakers brushed aside criticism from government accountability groups and citizens this week, moving forward with a bill that would extend the process of sending unrequested ballots to all registrants on California’s poorly maintained voter rolls. In a letter of opposition, the Election Integrity Project California (EIPCa) included the preliminary numbers of deceased or relocated individuals who actually “voted,” an indication of irregularities and potential fraud. “In November 2020, well over 440,000 questionable ballots were sent to registrants likely deceased or moved, and that 24,000 registrants were sent 2 or more ballots,” Ruth Weiss, EIPCa director of legislative oversight...
