Skip to comments.Warning: The threat of suspended elections is real
Posted on 09/30/2011 10:54:56 AM PDT by Hotlanta Mike
With absolutely no proof of any kind of who he really is, Barack Obama made it to the Oval Office in 2008. There was no media vetting of the largely absentee senator from Illinois, who even back then had the temerity to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. All anyone ever had to go on was an autobiographical book suspected of being ghost-written by an unrepentant domestic terrorist. We all know how it goes with politicians and autobiographical books.

I actually hope they do this.
I am not hoping for this. If it happens there will be blood, no way around it.
For someone who claims not to want to touch Obama’s eligibility, he gave this article national exposure leading up to the end of the first hour of his show.
To be followed by the NEXT chapter, “Americans go Berserk: DC Burns To The Ground”.
They’d certainly be getting ahead of themselves. Not very incremental of them is it? If you have extra cash laying around you might want to invest in pitchforks.
I'm afraid the American people no longer love liberty enough to do anything about it.
Where are the legislative and judicial branches of government in this whole affair? Don’t they too have something to say in this matter?
I forgot, we have a docile Congress and Supremes.
Of course they’re real! Why else would Perdue in NC plant the seed a few days ago?
Just remember that with no elections the terms of office of the President and Congress, except for the holdovers in the Senate, cease to exist in January 2013. At that point they no longer possess the office or hold power. That ‘government’ becomes a foreign occupying entity at that point.
I agree with you, then he will have 240 million of us on his doorstep.
I am always amazed he doesn’t understand the military is with us!!
“Unprecedented civil unrest”?
Try “unprecedented civil WAR”.
Glenn? Is that you Glenn Beck?
Never happen until they disarm us.
No big deal...he will just kill the terrorists in the streets...
Wow..... Guess the NC governor was spewing dnc talking points after all.......
The right said it about Clinton.
The left said it about Bush.
Are you sure about that? Read “Family of Secrets” by Russ Baker. A riveting mystery!
Yep...’cept them’s US.
I don’t cotton too well to being shot at by thugs and criminals.
Are you sure about that? Read “Family of Secrets” by Russ Baker. A riveting mystery!
To put those who oppose him in “re-education camps”..
Any coup requires the military as willing accomplices. That ain’t going to happen here.
At least it will mean we get to live in interesting times...
I notice she's writing this from the safety of Ontario. I guess we shouldn't expect her there on the ramparts with us.
Trouble is coming anyway, Obama's flying monkeys aren't going to accept the results of any election they don't win.
“Why do we NEED a DOJ? Why do we have a DEA? Why do we need a ATF? Why do we need an ICE? Why do we have a Border Patrol? Why do we have a CONGRESS funding these useless alphabet agencies?”
I have a terrible suspicion these outfits will be the Praetorian Guard around Capitol hill...
There’s a lot or retired military folks who are sitting on ready in case something like this happens. They will respond.
Full agreement here with your post. mho ... is the calculations have been made and the thoughts are they (government) do not have to disarm us. They will tell us they (our government) will offer us (the people) security, a livelihood, and allow us to keep our guns, as a trade off. Should we fail to agree with them, I have no doubt they have the means to force us. Nixon once said, I can kill eighty percent of the population with one phone call. Since Nixon, I think there has been plenty of time to improve upon their plan.
This country is overdue for a housecleaning of Biblical proportions. Let then start it. We 3 percenters will finish it.
After nationalizing healthcare, energy and food production, which they’ve done to a certain degree,
the next step in the standard communist playbook is a violent revolution. And it is “required” to be violent, according to their playbook, or it will not be successful.
And remember, “the Legislative Powers [being] incapable of Annihilation [would] return to the People at large [or the States] for their exercise”
Only takes one to remove a criminal ......
There is a very patriotic demographic that will never be heard or seen Skeeter to solve such IMO.
Socialist rats would be cutting their own throats by suspending elections. Even should they fabricate a crisis as an excuse to attempt such.
Just my opinion ...
It's become much more "realer" since the internet got popular.
I played along during the Clinton years, but it grew tiresome after a while.
Everyone needs to remember that there are still 50 people in this country that have one hell of a lot to say in something this big. Can you believe someone like Gov. Perry would take an action like this from Washington lying down? Or Daniels? This isn’t the 1800’s anymore, and our troops aren’t going to just sit by and take it either. I know that The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants, but so does Obama.
He isn’t this stupid, he knows that this would cause a civil war and also knows that the only ones backing a play like this are the type who expect to sit behind the lines and not get their hands dirty themselves.
If they did things would get VERY BAD quickly.......Elections(esp. National Elections) should only be suspended under the most dire situations! I fear that a National Emergency threat could allow Obama to look like a leader and suspend elections long enough to “Wag the Dog”.....
I remember the Dumbs getting all worked up about this exact same scenario when GWB was in office.
But during the Clinton and Bush admins we did not have governors and czars openly talking about suspending elections.
While I know that POTUS Obama would like nothing better to assume the mantle of Hitler or Mussolini as the dictator of the USA and...would willingly take whatever actions to accomplish that goal, it will not happen, because the overwhelming majority of Americans would refute his action both verbally and with force!!! However, having said that, there is no doubt in my mind that Obama coached and prompted Governor Bev Purdue of North Carolina to utter the treason words she spoke recently. Obama got his reaction, and....it was just what he wanted. The sheep (citizens & voters) of North Carolina have let their Governor slide free on her treasonous remarks in suggesting that elections be canned for two years. Remember....this has never happend once in the entire history of our nation!!! Obama is now confident, that, if need be he can null and void elections and assume dictator status. Now....had the voters of North Carolina demanded Perdue’s resignation or impeached her, this subject or action would have no life whatsoever. But with the voters of NC asleep at the wheel, our freedom and liberty are truly at stake as long as POTUS Obama remains in power!!! Sad!!!
Nah. And they'll never take over GM and Chrysler either.
I would accept a suspension due to nuclear war or alien invasion. Anything else should be rejected with extreme force.
“A dangerous new chapter is being written in American history”
-Democrats calling for Suspended Elections.
-Presidential advisors stating publicly that we have “Too Much Democracy”.
-Extrajudicial Executions of American Citizens without trial on the order of the President.
AND THAT IS JUST THIS WEEK...
We are indeed entering a dark period of American History, I fear.
You are right, of course.
But to pick at nits, IMO "civil war" suggests perhaps a near balanced struggle (measured either in people or material) between two forces both of which may have somewhat reasonable motivations.
I prefer "Taking Back America" - from the thugs/socialists/communists/RINOs.
If our history is objectively recorded, it will be obvious who the good guys are and who are the thieves.
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas term expired in January 2009. But the world continues to pretend that hes the elected leader of the Palestinians. Obviously, this isnt true. But this may be the model Obama is following. I thought it was a dangerous precedent then and I think its still a dangerous president now. The world wanted to continue the fiction that there was a peace process and leaving this man in office was the only way to do it. Now, how many elected leaders around the world are looking at this and thinking, Hey, I could do that!
Having said that, theres no pretext to allow the government to suspend elections. They werent suspended in the Civil War, WWI or WWII. Why would we allow them to be suspended now? Because theres an economic emergency? This is worse than the Civil War?
Obama would have to have a lot of people die to even try this; half the Supreme court, half the Senate and most of the House for starters. Maybe it would be better to impeach him now rather than risking the 14 month wait for an election. The life the Senators save might be their own. And, yes, I think there will be enough Democrat votes in the Senate to remove Obama. They want to save their own skins from unemployment.
This is how democracies end. Elections are suspended for some emergency, and they never return. We shouldn’t be naive and say “it can’t happen here.”
We do have a couple of things going in our favor:
(1) We held elections during the Civil War. It’s going to be hard to argue things are worse to day than the Civil War.
(2) Elections in our country are run by the states, not the federal government. Suspend 1 national election, maybe. But suspending 50 seperate elections is a differnt story.
While suspending the elections and having Obama become like Ceasar Chavez might be a liberal’s wet dream, it won’t happen. There would be open armed rebellion and I could see the US military not going along with it either. However, Democrats are desperate as they pretty well know Obama is almost certain to lose next November and will open up their bag of dirty tricks to steal the election where ever they can. Look for ballot box stuffing like in the election of Al Franken, voter intimidation by union thugs and the most vicious smear tactics in any election ever held.
The MSM wll be all for it and justify it with their prattle. Most sheeple will do nothing. The military know who pays their bills (DC). The Roman Republic became a Roman Empire and the citizens shrugged, less responsibility for them. More bread and circuses.
