Who says there will be an election?


Recommended Posts

This is just a thought:

Emperor George has given himself the power to declare Martial Law (under whatever pretext he chooses to imagine, say, "a terrorist attack"). The length of time is indefinite, during which the constitution will be suspended, and of course he stays in power during the "crisis". These are rules on the books. It could even be a natural disaster, like another Katrina, it doesn't matter he can make up whatever reason he wants.

So, who says there will even be an 'election' this year?

And even if there is, it still may not matter since he can declare Martial Law at any time as long as he's still in the chair.

Has anyone else thought about this?

Regards,

Randy

Well Randy, sure he could do that but why bother with something so obvious. The last two presidential elections in the US were rigged. He was not elected he was appointed President by a judge. The US Constitution has for all intents and purposes been suspended for at least the last 8 years. The Republicans can't take all the credit for it though. The Democrats did their bit too and just lay down and played dead. Why, I have no idea but that sure looks like what they did. I'm sure the trusty Diebold betting machines will come through again.

The ugliest election

From the overly decorous Gore team to the bought-and-paid-for Supreme Court, HBO's enraging docudrama shows the Florida recount like it was.

"Recount," director Jay Roach and screenwriter Danny Strong's first-rate docudrama about the disputed 2000 presidential election, is almost too painful to watch. Close to eight years have passed since a divided Supreme Court ended the epic 36-day battle over the votes by halting the recount in Florida, thus handing the election to George W. Bush. The bitterness over that judicial outrage may have subsided, but it never died, and HBO's "Recount" brings it all back. In fact, it's almost more unbearable to revisit this black chapter in American history than it was to experience it at the time. Beyond the manifest injustice of the ruling, after eight years of George W. Bush, we now know exactly what that ruling resulted in. It is impossible to watch "Recount" without experiencing a constant stream of agonized what-ifs.....

"Get over it. It's so old by now. The principal issue in the case, whether the scheme that the Florida Supreme Court had put together violated the federal Constitution, that wasn't even close."

Interview with Lesley Stahl for CBS 60 Minutes

Abraham Lincoln's quote "A house divided against itself, cannot stand," comes to mind. The ultimate issue that comes to mind regarding the 20th Century, [and hence, issues such as, the assassinations of President Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, et cetera] is the ever present what goes on behind the door;

The Door in this case being a metaphor for the government......

Although, I am partial to the Democratic Party, ultimately I subscribe to the view that there is something called The Unitary Executive, which, simply put, means there is a small group of individuals at the top of both the Republican and Democratic Parties, which act in unison on matters of national security.

The issue of resolution of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, is the ultimate example of how a flawed assassination plot, can, in effect, become the perfect crime.

Why?

The theory goes as follows:

Irrespective of the issue of the guilt or innocence of Lee Harvey Oswald, if there was a conspiracy, there was a built-in mechanism to make the assassination in effect, the perfect crime. Because?

The answers of Who, What, When, Where, Why regarding the unresolved questions of the Kennedy Assassination to the layman, are housed in the National Archives, but, are the National Archives secured for the documents themselves?

Apparently not, if the accounts of missing and/or destroyed documents are indeed accurate.

But, the ultimate issue is using the premise of National Security, as the methodology of keeping the truth buried.

See

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raison_d%27%C3%A9tat

Say the year 2017 has arrived

All the principals are arguably no longer of this world, but will the documents be completely unredacted?

If the answer is no, Does anyone really believe the American's of 2017, will be outraged and demand the complete and whole documents in their original intact versions.

What perhaps is the ultimate issue of the 20th Century is geopolitics and the facilitators of political change.

Had the facilitators of the JFK assassination read Curzio Malaparte's Coup D’ÉTAT: THE TECHNIQUE OF REVOLUTION?

If not, they were undoubtedly familiar with the work....

Who says there were legitimate presidential elections in 2000 and 2004?

The illusion of American democracy is most powerfully supported by the fictive construct known as "free and fair elections." Absent such control mechanisms, the majority, as G.H.W. Bush once nervously noted, would chase down the illusionists and hang them.

Have no doubt: The electoral charade will take place yet again, after which all the happy, brain-dead franchise exercisers will scurry into their SUVs like safety-seeking lobsters backing into the traps.
