In other words, martial law.
Minor little problem. Article 1. Section 4 of the Constitution:
The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Place of Chusing Senators.
Answer to headline: No.
“Were going through the regulatory policy and making sure all thats in place and we can support it.
Does congress have a spine?
He has no authority to cancel elections under presidential emergency powers.
If he tries it, all the red states vote in Romney as per the law, and then we have two presidents.
Next step is a meeting with the military to remove the Kenyan communist and his gang of perfumed princes at the joint chiefs.
No but Obama could try to postpone the election with the help of local, federal, state governments
The Kenyan Pretender contemplates regicide.
Well, f*** the report. The Constitution says: "The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators."
The Constitution also says: "Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors..."
There is no "Presidential election". There are 50 separate processes under the direction of 50 separate State legislatures, and neither Congress not the President (by design, I might add) has anything to do with it, except that Congress may specify a deadline by which Electors must be chosen, and must specify a single date on which all the Electors vote.
This is just a trial balloon. I’ve seen several already. Depending on reaction, they will push this further or drop it. The Admin would love to push this as it will muddy the waters and make a mess of the elections. Throw them into the courts. I wouldn’t trust SCOTUS on this one.
This is hurricane season...like it is EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Can anyone, with a straight face, say that a hurricane has NEVER caused a lot of damage the week before/week of a November election? NO! Florida deals with this all the time, and I’ll bet that literally millions haven’t voted over the last 150 years because of this - and so what!
Cheating with The Voting Dead and hundreds of thousands of illegals is bad enough (and treason, I might add), but changing Election Day has NEVER occurred before. NO WAY!
If obummer did this, it would backfire big time against him. Most states affected are in the demo camp already. NC, VA, PA, OH could go heavily against the dems out of disgust
“Our chief counsels been working on making sure that we have the proper guidance...
So FEMA thinks it’s going to decide if we have an election or not?
Oh, h-e-double-hockey-stocks NO. There WILL BE trouble.
Various local courts have already established precedents for extending voting hours.
My attitude is: “It had better f’n not!”
I wouldn’t put anything past Obama’s cabal, but since the states affected were clearly in his column, what’s the point? How would it convince states that are drifting towards Romney that his postponing the election is a good thing, rather than an overtly desperate political act?
Arrest this pretender and try him for TREASON Now!!!
