Staged crisis leading to suspended elections could happen on our watch
CFP ^ | 8/27/2012 | Judy McLeod

The closer America gets to Election Day, the more some worry about the possibility of there not being one.

Obama is smiling all the way through the polls, and it may not merely be whistling past the cemetery this time.

The fear of Obama suspending elections came long before the presidential election campaign officially began. It was almost one year ago when North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue made suspended elections an idea whose time has come.

“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Gov. Perdue, a Democrat said, according to a report by the Raleigh News & Observer. “You want people who don’t worry about the next election.” (Fox News, Sept. 27, 2011).

The trial balloon for Obama’s suspension of elections had been sent up overnight.

When public outrage followed Perdue’s ‘suggestion’, her staff quickly issued a statement suggesting she wasn’t really calling for suspension of elections.

“Governor Perdue was obviously using hyperbole to highlight what we can all agree is a serious problem: Washington politicians who focus on their own election instead of what’s best for the people they serve,” a spokesman said.

Canada Free Press (CFP) believes that Perdue, who is suiting herself and not running for re-election this time out, was the first person to give oxygen to the idea of Obama suspending elections.

You do not have to be in the Conspiracy Camp to worry that something is amiss in this Election. It is not as the media is presenting it, just an election like any other with the Repubs and Dems dragging out skeletons and leaving them for all to see out on the campaign trail.

Federals cannot suspend state elections. Elections are held at the state level.

And the states most likely to suspend are ones that Baraq would likely win, LOL.

A Civil War with the country split in 2 did not even delay 2 Presidential and 3 Congressional elections.

I heard all this back when Clinton was president too. Same conspiracy, different year.

But, what if most Secretary of States are George Soros property? And what if huge purchases of ammo by the Feds need something to do? And what if the company that COUNTS THE VOTES (SCYTL of Spain) complies with the Feds orders NOT to count them?

Hunger Games as an equivalent? I watched it the other night, thought it was rather silly and not even that entertaining.

If he did suspend them it would just create a Constitutional crisis, as the powers of his office would still lapse on Jan. 20. Unless the military is willing to back him in a full-blown coup.

Protesters will storm private homes frightening their inhabitants.

Sound like there's going to be a lot of dead protesters, then.

One way to delay an election is for the NAACP to come in at the last minute and sue states like Alabama that had districts redrawn by Republicans for violating the Voting Rights Act. Far fetched? Just ask the folks down in Evergreen who won the local elections a few weeks back. They will tell you that the election was put on hold because someone wanted a council district line moved over by one street because it violated their rights. Can they do it nationally? Who knows, but messing with the elections on a larger level is within the realm of possibilities. They may not stop the elections, but they can create confusion to keep turnout down.

Scytl is not the the vote counter in all election districts, just the districts that have contracted with them.

This was the same crap posted by the Left in 2004 and 2008. It’s straight alarmist BS and the idea that anyone would believe this is actually going to happen is pretty silly.

Will there be cheating? Sure.
Will some people vote twice? Sure
Will some ballots not get counted or others get counted twice? Sure.

But suspending the election? No way.

"The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed — where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once".

Judge Alex Kozinski

There COULD BE more OWS style pandemonium orchestrated
by surrogates of Team Obama, but they will have an even MORE
negative impact on Obama’s chances in the election, which is
why I ultimately don’t think it will happen.
And any noise from the WH and its agencies of authority about
“suspending” elections will make ‘Bama look like the wannabe
dictator we always knew he was.
Ain’t gonna happen.
“Wouldn’t be prudent”.
The only way it COULD happen would be if the protest found
a way to take on another identity and make themselves appear to be in some way “Pro Romney” and ANTI-Obama.But I don’t think these folks can think that quickly on their feet.

We didn’t postpone elections during the civil war or during WWI or WWII for that matter did we? So why, praytell would we postpone them now? Even if there’s a nuclear bomb blast in the middle east or another 911. We still vote. MOre reason to vote.

The Kenyan can only suspend the elections if the Congress, the Courts, and the rest of the nation allow him to. Unfortunately the Congress, the courts, and the rest of the nation have already granted him dictatorial powers by not questioning his right to rule by decree. There are complaints about the content of his EO/Edicts but not a peep from anyone about his right to issue and enforce them. This does not bode well, even if the kenyan chooses to accept a loss and steps down in November. That right of decreeexists and will still exist and WILL BE USED by whoever is the President because there was/is NO opposition before the completion of the term of the one who institutionalized it. On the other hand if the kenyan simply stays in office by Executive Order, I think there will be a huge outcry that he has done that but there will still be acceptance of it as a fait accompli. That is the truly dangerous situation in the country. There is no danger of the president becoming a Dictator. He already is. He has total power through the Congressionally sanctioned- because not congressionally denied- Executive Orders. And if there is a next president he will be effectively a dictator also for the same reason. We have already given up representative government.

You are right, elections are held at the state level. It would be difficult for BodyOdor to completely halt 50 state elections, especially in the red states.

Elections still took place during the Civil War.

What would happen if some cities weren’t allowed to hold the elections because of turmoil? Some people won’t get to vote and some won’t be counted. Would obama not scream EQUAL CLAUSE!

But we really don’t have to worry about it. If this happens the republicans will definitely pitch a bitch.

You believe that the president couldn’t by decree stop the elections til 2013? All it takes is one large terrorist act, or “crisis” and he would evoke war powers act. I bet Mitt would agree with him!—at first. The postponed election would be pushed to 2016 then—never and we would have President Obama for life—and a People’s Republic with one Party—the Democrat party. Others would be deemed “Hate Parties” and banned. The states would cease to be important—like the congress. On that day—we raise the Bonnie Blue Flag!

Of course he couldn't.

You'd have to convince FIFTY states to comply.

Rotsa Ruck in the red states.

I think if you do an analysis, you'll see the SoS project backfired bigtime and there are actually more Republican SoS now than there were before ole Nazi George started.

The President can do pretty much what he wants to do. The Congress has recognized his right to issue and enforce Executive Orders (Edicts,Ukases, Dictats, or whatever) and the Courts have not disapproved. They are accepted as within the President's power. Congressmen and public figures have complained about the contents and purposes of the EOs but not about their very existence or the President's right to issue and enforce them. It is said that the President should not have contravened the immigration laws duly enacted by Congress and should enforce the other duly enacted laws (as stated in the Constitution) of Congress but no voice is raised about the Unconstitutional and tyrannical nature of the issuance and enforcement of such Edicts. No voice is raised because the principle of rule by decree is already generally accepted by the entire political class. We have not yet got Lenin but Chavez is trying his wings.

Electing Romney(assuming an election) won't make any difference in the long run. Congress and the nation have not just granted those powers to a man, but the the Presidency. The president will exercise them. Once a second president has these rights they are in concrete and will not go away again.
