Next up, there were some significant changes in the actions taking place by the United States postal service. Finally, we have our vice president of AMAC action Andy Mangione to provide an update to AMAC members on a very important issue that involves social security.

Ben Ferguson:

Hi, I’m Ben Ferguson and welcome to your AMAC Weekly News. It was a big week for the democratic national convention, and it took place with the biggest names. The democratic party has to offer. One of those names was former first lady, Michelle Obama, and the mainstream media and liberals fawned all over her speech. The problem is the reality of her biggest hit on Donald Trump, actually involved a policy put in place by her husband, find out which policy that was and why the media looked the other way on purpose. Also, there were some big changes in the actions taking place by the United States postal service. Now, first there was an attempt to cut costs and now the postmaster general has suspended. Those changes after outcry over a possibility of a delivery, slow down to you. They also were claiming on the left that the election would not take place if it wasn’t for the us postal service, getting more money. So what is real? What is a lie what’s fear-mongering we’re going to explain it to you coming up in just a moment. And finally, we have our vice president of AMAC action, Andy Mangione here to provide an update to AMAC members on a very important issue that involves social security. But first, a quick reminder, if you haven’t shared this video with your family and friends on social media, make sure you share right now. It also irritates the left. When this show goes viral, your AMAC weekly news starts right now.

Ben Ferguson:

If you’ve watched the news at all this week, you have probably seen the continuous attempts by liberals in the media to try and portray Joe Biden as a viable presidential nominee. Well, this week the democratic party had its very first, mostly virtual democratic national convention. Apart from a few so-called Republicans who spoke the majority of the convention involve liberals talking about Biden and pretending like he was the candidate. They all wanted all along throughout all of this one speech came to the forefront, the mainstream media fond over the speech given by former first lady, Michelle Obama on opening night during her speech, she called present Trump quote, the wrong president for our country. She criticized everything from the president’s response to the black lives matter protests to the administration’s treatment of migrant families at the border. Take a look at this

Speaker 2:

And they see what happens when that lack of empathy is ginned up into outright disdain. They see our leaders labeling fellow citizens, enemies of the state while emboldening torch, bearing white supremacists. They watch in horror. As children are torn from their families and thrown into cages and pepper spray and rubber bullets are used on peaceful protesters

Ben Ferguson:

For photo op. Now, what is funny and kind of ridiculous that the media did not question Michelle Obama on these statements is that the very same quote cages that she’s angry about were actually built and used in her own husband’s administration for the same purpose of holding migrant kids temporarily. In fact, president Trump actually suspended his zero tolerance enforcement policy because of the uproar of the American people. Guess what? Obama had no such change of heart after he built these cages and use it continuously throughout his entire presidency. Now, luckily president Donald Trump actually reacted to Michelle Obama’s speech. Of course the media said he was unhinged and his response to Michelle Obama. I’ll let you decide, take a look at Michelle Obama’s speech last night, where she said that you’re in over your head and the wrong president, she was over her head and frankly, she should have made the speech live, which she didn’t do.

Ben Ferguson:

She taped it. And it was not only taped to his tape a long time ago because she had the wrong deaths. She didn’t even mention the vice presidential candidate in the speech. And you know, she gets these fawning reviews. If you gave her a real review, it wouldn’t be so funny. I thought it was a very divisive speech, extremely divisive. No, I thought her speech was very divisive and frankly, I wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for Barack Obama, was standing in the white house. I wouldn’t be in the white house except for Barack Obama because they did a bad job Biden and Obama. And if they did a good job, I wouldn’t be here. Now, president Donald Trump is absolutely right in what he just said, what we are witnessing in this country. What we’re watching is not just the extreme left of the democratic party, but actual literal socialists taking over the democratic party and its platform.

Ben Ferguson:

Even Bernie Sanders at the convention pointed out that ideas that are now considered mainstream in the democratic party were ones that used to be considered radical. Take a look. Our campaign ended several months ago, but our movement continues and is getting stronger every day. Many of the ideas we fought for that just a few years ago were considered radical on now, mainstream Bernie Sanders is a guy that’s always been honest about his socialist beliefs. And now we know that the democratic party has clearly been taken over by the socialist left. They put this in prime time at the democratic convention, let’s be clear about what they’re advocating for now. If we don’t stand up to actually fight against what they’re advocating for, they are going to take down this country as we know it, and we must stop it. Now, AMAC is here to make sure that your voice is heard in DC and around the country. But most importantly, AMAC is to make sure that you know, what is going on with the democratic party in the left so that we can get the word out to all Americans of what they’re actually now fighting for and what they’re all about. And it is to change this country.

Ben Ferguson:

There is a new political battleground. What is it? The United States postal service. You literally cannot make this up. Well, this all started because of the fight involving mail and voting for the 2020 presidential election. And there was a fake outrage from the left. As questions arose over whether the United States postal service could even handle all these votes coming in. Now, one of the biggest issues that the us postal service is facing is its costs for the last 13 years in the row. They’ve been losing billions of dollars every year. So they’re always looking for a crisis to get more money. Well, the us postal service, just back in 2019 and the annual report to Congress showed that in reality, it is nearly at the point of insolvency. This was pre COVID-19 and the fiscal year 2019, the postal service had a net loss of 8.8 billion and 11 billion in debt.

Ben Ferguson:

On top of that, what is even more interesting is that in 2017, a government investigation concluded that the United States postal service and properly coordinated with a postal workers, national union to actively support Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. Yes, the us postal service actually did this and still is expecting taxpayers that trust them and want to help them out when it comes to this election. Now on the bright side for the us postal service AOC, you know that crazy liberal on the left, she’s got a new quote, brilliant idea of how to revitalize and save the postal service. Now I got to let her use her own words, cause I honestly cannot give justice to the insanity of this idea. Here is AOC. This is a democratic leader telling you, she knows how we’re going to say the postal service for years to come take a look.

Speaker 3:

Hello everyone. I have been thinking about ways to help you help the post office. And I think I’ve got an idea and I’m interested in hearing your thoughts. So one of the best ways to support the post office is to buy stamps. What do you all think? Would you guys be down and excited? If I set up a national progressive pen pal program, um, do all the work of connecting you to somebody else we would offer maybe some conversation prompts or postcard prompts and even like a postcard format, you just send it out. Would you guys be down? Do you like that idea?

Ben Ferguson:

Well, I’m glad we figured that one out. Apparently. Now you need to get your pencils out some paper and start pen palling people. Now she has officially solved the crisis with this idea for a national progressive pen pal program. It’s even got an official name. It is literally the national progressive pen pal program, and that will boost the stamp sales and everything will be fine.

Ben Ferguson:

The us postal service postmaster general attempted to put for some cost cutting measures in case the pen pal plan doesn’t work out over the past week to try to literally say the us postal service. So instead of celebrating this liberals and the mainstream media accused him and the president of doing this in order to in pair mail in voting. So when the us postal service starts to fail, liberals are angry at president Trump. This is what we referred to is a fake crisis. Don’t forget the postal service for the last 13 years in a row every year has been losing billions of dollars. Now, when the postmaster general tries to save the ups, they’re now just saying no, no, no, no, you can’t save it. Mr. President, you’re actually trying to rig the election. That’s a new way to spin something. Isn’t it? The point is the laugh will do anything to try and get president Trump out of office.

Ben Ferguson:

That includes making a fake crisis at the us postal service. And one of the reasons why they’re doing this, everyone needs to understand is because the union voters are vitally important to Joe Biden’s campaign. If they can get these workers more money, they’re going to vote for Joe Biden, even if it means lying to the American people do accomplish this. The other issue is can you really trust the postal workers do not forget. In 2016, the us postal service union and the post office actually broke the law, supporting Hillary Clinton’s campaign. They allowed postal workers to take time off. And then the union paid them their salary to even phone bank and walk door to door canvassing neighborhoods for Hillary Clinton. At the end of the day, we’ve got to fight for Donald Trump. We have to make sure that we show up in the voting booth in November. And we have to make sure that when the left pulls a stunt like this, we call them out for what they’re trying to do. Divide this country.

Ben Ferguson:

Well, a democratic convention where the media fell in love with Michelle Obama is obviously what they want all of us to believe, but there were some problems with a lot of the things that she had to say. Joining me now to talk about that as Andy Mangione Senior Vice President AMAC action. And Andy, you saw Michelle Obama. She came after Donald Trump. The media loved it. Uh, they, they said it was the greatest thing ever, except there’s some problems with what she had to say. And I will give credit the associated press, actually fact check Michelle Obama’s words, uh, when she was attacking the president for separating families and throwing kids in the cages. And you, and I know the whole story, those cages, and this policy was implemented and literally built by her husband, Barack Obama. I was shocked. She went there, but I guess she knew the media was going to cover for

Andy Mangione:

Yeah. Then, you know, they, they know they’ve got covered by the mainstream media. And thank you for mentioning the AP fact check. At least they got something right. But the only thing missing from her talk was when she’s talking about president Trump, putting people in cages, what is the line just like my husband did. Uh, if they’re supported by the false narrative is continued and supported by the media, but there’s too many eyes and there’s too many sources watching this. And I’m glad that she got called out on it by the AP.

Ben Ferguson:

You look at the bias in the media and people say, well, show me proof. And you got to really think about this speech writers, go over this stuff. This wasn’t off the cuff comments. They deliberately chose to use this topic to attack Donald Trump. They all know that her husband built these cages, funded it and had the policy of separating these families. Exactly what Donald Trump continued now to Donald Trump’s credit. When there was national outcry over this, he actually stopped it. Something that Obama was not willing to do, but this really speaks, I think, to the arrogance of the democratic party right now, they believe genuinely that they can say and misrepresent and lie and do whatever they want to do. And no one is going to actually call them out for it.

Andy Mangione:

You know, Ben, you’re absolutely right. And to tag on to that, I think Americans are tired of being lied to Michelle. Obama goes out without a narrative. That’s been perpetuated over the years. She does get called out on it. But she has mostly covered from, from the mainstream media. This is something that, that is perpetuated and keep in mind that her statement on that first night, I believe all those statements were taped. So this was deliberate. This was not off the cuff. This was written, as you said, and this was a narrative that they wanted to perpetuate, even though they know that it’s false. Now, Ben, let me ask you a question. Have you ever seen a greater display of, out of touch politicians all gathered in one place?

Ben Ferguson:

No, it is not only that, but you see the Republicans that have kind of been kicked to the wayside and John Kasich. And I said that this week when case it comes out with this video, for example, and attacking Donald Trump, I was sitting there going Mark. My word, John Kasich will be in the cabinet of, uh, of, of Joe Biden. If he is elected, it is very clear and people should be paying attention to this. The re the Republicans they have, they’re just trying to get their next power job. And it is obvious that Cusick was rejected by conservative voters in the primary. When ran for president, he’s attacked Joe Biden saying, he’s a liar yet. Now he’s saying, okay, I’ll make this deal. I’ll come out and support you. And I’m telling you Mark my word. He is going to get a cabin position of Joe Biden wins.

Andy Mangione:

That’s a great observation because he’s totally trashed his Republican credentials he’s done in the Republican party. What else can he do?

Ben Ferguson:

Yeah. And now it’s going to be, make a deal. I want to switch gears real quick to something else. That is a very big tool for our members. Uh, and there’s been a lot of misinformation, a lot of fear mongering and scare tactics towards seniors on the issue of social security and the payroll tax break. The president wants to do. Let’s clear that up real quick, about what the president actually said he wants to do, and what this actually means for seniors.

Andy Mangione:

All the president wanted to do. Ben was temporarily suspend the payroll tax to give workers and employers a little bit more money during the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus. And the president has been viciously, attacked saying, he’s cutting Medicare. Now that sounds familiar as well as social security. But if you saw this press conference last week, you’d know that the president remains fully committed to continuing and strengthening both social security. And Medicare what’s clear is that he doesn’t like funding social security using the payroll tax. He’d rather see workers and employers keep more of their money, but he is interested in working with Congress to explore options other than taxing one’s income to pay for social security. And you know what we did, Ben, we pulled our members last week and more than 26,000 AMAC members either said they strongly supported president Trump’s directive or agree with it. As long as social security benefits were not subsequently made subject to the annual congressional budget process. So they’re open to alternatives.

Ben Ferguson:

It’s incredible news. Again, you guys have AMAC Action. This is why people’s membership and being a member of AMAC is so important because of the action side of things, which you’re doing. Thank you for keeping people up to date on this and really watching what is actually happening instead of what the media is trying to scare people into believing Andy Mangione, thanks so much and for all the work you guys are doing at AMAC Action. Thank you. Bet my pleasure. Once again, a big thank you to AMAC action for the hard work that they are doing. And Andy Mangione for coming on the show this week, lastly, we’re at the end of the year, almost when it comes to the election cycle, November elections are just months away and it’s now more important than ever that you, as an AMAC member, tell your friends about AMAC as an organization.

Ben Ferguson:

Now, if you haven’t renewed your membership now is the time to do it. We are United, we are focused and we are doing everything we can to fight back against the extreme left in this country. So if you haven’t joined, AMAC make sure you do it. Tell your family, tell your friends about AMAC and the great work that they’re doing. And also about the AMAC magazine. Now, as you know, AMAC represents you in more than 2 million other conservatives on Capitol Hill, but without you, none of this as possible. So if you’re a member, thank you for being a member. If it’s time for you to renew, thank you for renewing your membership. And also thank you for telling your family and friends about AMAC. As we continue to fight and grow, I’m Ben Ferguson, and I’ll see you back next week for our next episode.

I have never heard a greater concentration of delusional lunatics in my entire life!

Maureen Edmond

Hey, I don’t believe the Postal Service has EVER operated in the black. They’re a losing proposition. I think the Postal Service should be privatized.
I also think Michelle Obama and her husband lie about everything and they’re “ginning up” their own “White Supremacy” story. President Trump has done more for the black Americans than the Obamas ever did! And I don’t think Trump is unhinged – no, he’s right. Mr. Trump said she was divisive, and she always does speak in terms of division – she promotes black causes. She hates white people. I just can’t listen to her dribble most of the time.

Is AOC stupid or does her mother just dress her funny? Has she forgotten the elephant in the room most of us know, love and use on a daily basis called the internet? The thing that’s given us the miracle (or curse) of social media and used by millions 24 hours a day, seven days a week? It strikes me as odd, because you’d think she’d be wearing her little fingers of color down to mere nubs with all of the time and effort she puts into Twitter alone. Why would anybody want to correspond with their new Pen Pals using the ancient relics of pen and paper? To make matters worse, does she then expect us to put a stamp on an envelope, address it, remember to include our return address (privacy issues anyone?)…. lick the envelope (to ensure our aforementioned privacy)…. and it pains me to say this, but…..physically…. touch…. a…. mailbox (any mailbox)….drop the correspondence into it…. fully aware of the ever present danger of Covid-19 constantly lurking and poised to pounce at any given moment….when all we have to do now is simply “log on?”

I don’t guess AOC has been out of her little worls enough to know that , unlike her, millions of others have been buying stamps for decades. It might be new to her. Actually, buying stamps IS the problem, because if forces the Post office to do actual work, which causes those high expenses.

Tell the whole truth about the Postal Service net loss of billions per year. In 2006 Congress mandated prefunding of retiree health care for 75 years. The prefunding mandate is responsible for 92 percent of Postal Service net losses since 2007 and is a threat to the financial sustainability of the Postal Service.

On Feb. 5, the House passed the USPS Fairness Act— introduced by House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chair Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.)— which would undo the pre-funding requirement.
Repeal the prefunding is the only way to #savethepostoffoce.

So, Jack, do you prefer USPS retiree health care shortfalls be funded by the government general fund, or do you offer a better solution that does not involve me having to pay for it? Whether the USPS losses are from health care or another source, it still should not be on our backs to keep them afloat.

Is it true what Biden said about Trump defunding the police? I haven’t heard this rather I’m aware that Democrats and Rhinos stick together and that most if not all of the Mayor’s who are defunding the police are liberal democrats.

Postal management has been literally giving themselves bonuses for their govt. jobs as much as $15K yr ( for plant managers ). They give stupidvisors only $1500 for just “doing their job.” And these piles of excrement figure everyone should bail THEM out ? How about a 50% pay cut for management ? They produce NOTHING yet want to be top feeders. Disgusting. Let Beezos buy the post office. I’m totally disgusted.

Like the candle makers and the buggy whip makers that ran prosperous businesses back when Ben Franklin was the first Postmaster General, the Postal Service is becoming obsolete.Realistically, unless it’s a package, letters and bills can be emailed. For packages, use UPS or FedEx. The big problem is how to properly help the almost 500k workers who would be displaced?

As usual the socialist/dems are BUYING VOTES with our tax dollars, they corrupted the teachers union, postal union just like every level of government agencies, they ONLY hire thier friends, relatives, faithful mindless drones, they use them the same way they have used the blacks, they only “CARE” about them at election time, shows you how poorly our educational system has gotten, nobody knows how to read or comprehend anymore.

Never in my lifetime have I seen so many losers in so few minutes of the liberal convention// My total time for watching was 12 minutes in 4 days// Can/t quite understand the monkey who is Obama/s wife/cut her hair off and you have baby KONG//She was on tape and Biden was reading from a teleprompter 6 ft. away/Amazing no riots and looting was discussed in the liberal run cities and states//This is perfect for the TRUMPSTER and the upbeat REPUBLICAN PARTY instead of the dismal display from last week and the group of old cronies from ancient history still spewing garbage//

Not everything Ben Ferguson says is truth. And he starts off by saying it also “irritates the left”? Amac is a conservative Assoc. and therefore should be better than the “other” publication for seniors. I don’t belong to Amac to find ways to irritate others. We need to be united not devisive. I think Amac can do better than this!

I’ve watched each and every video, sometimes more than once, from Ben and AMAC since they started doing them. I don’t recall Ben ever saying anything that was not truthful. So be careful Warren, as making such a statement without at least an example of what you think is not truthful can damage the credibility of anything said that follows.

Still, I agree AMAC can and should do better. I would prefer AMAC to use this forum to give us real news from a conservative point of view, and not used to provide a mocking response to Leftist nuttiness. I can get that from Sean Hannity. Just providing people with the truth is enough to irritate the Left. It does not have to be a stated goal.

AMAC News needs to proof read these written dialogues, etc. as they choppy, disjointed, and not easy to follow. It is like reading grade school English!! Do these guys really talk this way while trying to communicate? Read the information in this issue of the news and see if it can’t be readily understood without interpretation. BTW: I do read and enjoy my AMAC connection.

The mail that is sent before elections by political people running for office and groups to support their person is sent at a cheaper rate. Some as low as .25 cents each. They should pay the full price of .55 cents each for the political item mailed as you or I would to send a letter. This would get more money to the USPS. But NO, they want the discounted rate. Then they take our tax money to boost the USPS up to speed. Again the we the tax payer is taken advantage of. The political candidates should pay their way at the full postage rate that you and I would pay, not send tax money to keep their political rates low.

It’s astonishing how many democrats actually believe everything their leaders tell them. They can’t distinguish between fact and fiction. It’s nice to see that AMAC speakers actually have a brain for common sense. Glad you are supporting what’s right for America and Americans.
