Helter Skelter Theory # 7

   HELTER SKELTER                          

                          CASHING IN?
“emergency situation ...”

I had to take my vehicle to the mechanic the other day for service. The Service Manager, Pete, gave me a ride home and on the way he told me his theory about the upcoming election and the next four years of U.S. government. At first I thought it a bit far-fetched.  But as I listened to him it began to make sense, scary sense...

“I believe that Hillary Clinton will win the election in November,” Pete began. “Then, sometime between November and January, Hillary will be indicted. The IRS is now investigating the Clinton Foundation and the whole e-mail thing isn’t over yet.”

“Once under indictment she won’t be able to assume the Office of the President in January. Tim Kaine, who will not actually be the Vice President because neither he nor Hillary have been inaugurated, cannot assume the Presidency.
The Speaker of the House can’t move up to it because there is already a sitting President and Vice President. So President Obama, in an Executive Order citing “emergency situation,” gives himself another four years in office is the only way possible.”

Pete believes Obama has been planning this for a while now, knowing he has enough on Hillary to indict her. Had the Attorney General indicted her based on evidence from the FBI this plan wouldn’t have worked because the DNC would have quickly come up with another candidate

If you think about it, it’s not that outrageous. Many people on the left, including the President, want Obama to stay another four years. The law prohibits him from being re-elected so the only ways he can do it is by declaring martial law and suspending the election (which would be a very negative thing for the country) or to declare himself still President because the elected candidate cannot assume her duties.

The latter makes more sense and is actually more feasible. And since it’s never been done before, it would set a precedent that would be difficult to challenge.

Of course, if Trump wins the election none of this is going to happen. But what if Pete is correct? Four more years of Obama and a mostly useless Republican House and Senate would give Obama the time he needs to continue destroying changing the country to fit his stated goals.

I thanked Pete for the ride home – and for messing up my day. Now I’ve got more things to worry about!

It's been a great day! (Stu Tarlowe)

Thanks Stu. The terrible part is we live in times where this is 50/50 on the "It Could Happen" scale.

Except they can swear her in under indictment. There's nothing that says they can't. It would take years for a conviction and she can serve as president those years.

Actually, she could prolly serve even if incarcerated.

It could never happen. If Obama attempted it, the result would be Civil War II. He is content to become an "Elder Statesman" and have the faithful climb the mountaintop and drink from his Vast Store of Wisdom (tm) after his term expires.

Chris and Rodger, both of you are frighteningly correct. So I wonder, in view of Edmund Burke's, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”: Are there any good men left in DC to fight this (theory) diabolical event from occurring? Why Trump has risen with a fatigued America.

I still suspect she will get indicted before October and the DNC will recruit Uncle Joe.

Chris in NC said...

Tom, I'd say that's not possible because the deadlines to change the names on the ballots will have passed by then but this is the democrat party. As we saw in Jersey, they'll change the rules or get a judge to when it suits them...

Chris in NC said...

And following up on this, as soon as she's sworn in, she'll pardon herself and be done with it. Saying "it's for the benefit of the country that I not be distracted by the investigations into the laws I broke" and her supporters will lap it up.

"Section 3. If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified. "

Stu, you need to acquire a zen-like state.
I find the rhythm of reloading ammo helps a lot.

This morning I was informed that I was punching my pillow in my sleep. This post will help, I'm sure.

clap-clap to Cheesy and Helly. Thanks for the grins.

Hmmm…I've been dreaming of punching Mike Lindell, inventor of My Pillow™, "the official pillow of the National Sleep Foundation"

Is anyone else as sick as I am of those inescapable commercials? Does anyone else find the people in the testimonials just a little bit creepy? And WTF is the National Sleep Foundation?
