USPS Hero Whistleblower and Marine Veteran Richard Hopkins Did NOT Recant. Urges Others To Blow the Whistle on Election Fraud
Ladies and Gentlemen: This is the face of an American hero. In the past few days, you've heard a lot about Richard "Alex" Hopkins (pictured above.) He is the Erie, Pennsylvania USPS whistleblower who, despite what the MSM media has told you, has not recanted. No, hell no! Instead, he's double-downed on his testimony of observing election fraud in action.
You see, it takes more than what someone on Twitter called the "fear up" brainwashing techniques of USPS IG Russell Strasser and USPS Inspector Charles Klein to make a Marine veteran cower, shaking in his boots.
It's a vile kind of poetic injustice that on the birthday of the Marine Corps, Richard was suspended without pay by the USPS while the Mainstream Media had a heyday defaming this brave American Marine who served in Afghanistan and Iraq and performed rescue operations during Hurricane Harvey. The Washington Post, the New York Times, etc. all lied to you when they told you that Richard recanted his affidavit that late ballots picked up on 11/4 were backdated to 11/3. He did NOT recant.
As a self professed introvert, Richard was not seeking the limelight when he contacted Project Veritas. "I don't care who wins," he told James O'Keefe and the USPS IG during the interrogation (31:50) stating that he voted the Libertarian ticket only deviating to vote for President Trump. His passion was simply that the election be done "properly...legally."
I think we all feel the same. And when it is done properly, legally...Trump wins!
Since he publicly blew the whistle, Mr. Hopkins has been subjected to a surprise two hour interrogation during which he was jollied along, love-bombed and condescended to by the interrogators. He's been intimidated, gaslighted, brainwashed, mind controlled, defamed, placed on leave without pay for being "injurious" (see letter below). It's been a wild ride but he's still adamant about what he saw, what he heard and will see it through regardless of the pain and harm to himself.
He's lost everything...his anonymity, his paycheck, his GoFundMe, his ability to feed his child and his safety. But he did it willingly knowing there would be Hell to pay because he's a patriot. What he's lost doesn't hold a candle to keeping his self-respect, his good name and remaining Semper Fi.
After listening to almost half of the two hour recording of the interrogation, I am beyond convinced that Mr. Hopkins is exactly whom he claims to be and he witnessed exactly what he documented in his affidavit.
He's an American hero. He's my hero. That's why I'm asking you to join Michael and me and thousands of other Americans in supporting Mr. Hopkins with a donation. The least we can do is relieve him of the worry of paying his bills and feeding his child. Let's put our money where our patriotism is by donating via the Christian donation site Give, Send, Go: https://givesendgo.com/bebrave And when you give, pray.
Exactly who is Richard Hopkins and what exactly did he witness? Read on!
The #ProtectRichard story begins on the day after the election when Richard overheard his coworkers, Rob Weisenbach and Daryl Locke, discussing ballots picked up on the 4th of November. All of them except one had been backdated to election day, November 3rd. One ballot was correctly postmarked November 4th.
"It freaked me out," Richard told the IG. He poked his head around the corner and exclaimed, "What?" That was when Rob saw Richard and walked away.
Later Richard also added that the Erie, PA USPS staff were collecting ballots on Nov. 4th, Nov. 5th and Nov. 6th.
That's his whole story in a nutshell. Simple. Clean. Names. Dates. Details. No frills.
But who exactly is Richard "Alex" Hopkins and why should we trust him?
I learned all about him by listening to the 2:02:49 YouTube recording of his interrogation by USPS IG Russell "Russ" Strasser and USPS Inspector Charles "Chris" Klein. Their treatment of this brave man so enraged me, I had to quit listening at forty-three minutes but I'd heard enough. More than enough! All became clear when James O'Keefe of Project Veritas posted screenshots of a Twitter account (now removed) that allegedly belonged to IG Russ Strasser. It was rabidly anti-Trump which explains his mental torture of Richard.
Richard comes from an honorable family. His grandfather (whom I've PMed for comment), has a long and distinguished career in the Army CID, Pennsylvania's Attorney General's Office and the Erie Police Department.
Richard followed in his grandfather's footsteps by studying Criminal Justice in college. Later he joined the Marine Corps, serving for five years as a 5952 Navigational Aide's Technician followed by four years in the Army National Guard where he performed rescue operations and clean-up during Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
At twenty-one minutes into the recording, after a great deal of brothers-in-arms, jollying along and "good on you" love bombing, IG "Russ" suggests there may have been some embellishment in what Richard reported to Project Veritas. So commences the most subtle of brainwashing. Gaslighting. The insertion of self-doubt.
Two minutes later Russ states, "...we're gonna do some techniques...that help the mind remember." At thirty minutes, Russ assures Richard, "You're allowed to be passionate about that you think was happening with ballots." [his emphasis]
All the while he was attempting to plant the seeds of doubt in Richard's mind, he was acting like his best buddy. Brothers in arms and all that. Russ was practically sucking up to Richard to earn his trust. With thirty years of experience of being love-bombed and gaslighted by people I loved and trusted implicitly, I found Russ' tactics both obvious and nauseating.
They also worked.
Just thirty-six minutes into the cross-examination, Richard who had previously been rock solid states, "You're making me question myself at this point" and Russ responds, "That's my purpose here...I am actually...trying to twist you a little bit because in that, believe it or not, your mind will kick in...We like to control our mind. And when we do that, we can convince ourselves of a memory."
You mean you, Russ, like to control other people's minds.
Richard wasn't trying to convince himself of anything! Actually, he was shocked by what he'd heard. Horrified by it. He never wanted nor intended to become a whistleblower. Never wanted the attention nor limelight.
By minute forty-two in the recording, Russ' job was done when Richard who had been very clear before, but foolishly consented to the interrogation without legal counsel or experience, used the word, "assume." Russ pounced!
And that is how the lying, bastard Mainstream Media came to publish that Richard recanted.
He did not recant. Instead, he's calling on the Washington Post to recant their defamatory article claiming he had. Today he sat down with James O'Keefe of Project Veritas and he was pissed.
"I'd rather be out back in Afghanistan getting shot at by Afghans, honest to God, than having to be in this kind of position," Richard told O'Keefe. "I made an oath when I joined the Marine Corps...[I'm] going to protect our country and our Constitution until the day [I] die."
"I was in Afghanistan and Iraq. Two tours while I was in the Marines. I was in the Marines for five years and after I got out of the Marines I missed the uniform, so I went back into the Army Guard. I would rather be serving my country and doing something that I feel like is historical but at the same time, it's not my name that's going to be there." His only hope is that someday his daughter (4 y.o.) will be proud of him.
Dear Richard, You are still serving your country by blowing the whistle. The interrogation you underwent was disrespectful and vile but I want you to know that your country thanks you for your service, both as a Marine and now as a whistleblower. You are an American hero.
We honor you for your courage, both on and off the battlefield in the melee of the 2020 Election. May your example, your sacrifice and your suffering inspire Rob, Daryl, Stephanie Hetrick and thousands of others who observed or may have even partook in election fraud, knowingly or unknowingly, to come forward.
To other whisteblowers who might be on the fence, weighing personal aggravation against their patriotic duty, Richard had this to say:
Again, please donate to help this American hero through a difficult time. He had our backs; we should have his. Semper Fi.
