Could this Actually Happen?
September 5, 2016
Note from the Editor - I originally hesitated to publish this because I, personally, have great distaste for conspiracy theories. I would never want to spread one, and I know legally this could never take place. I love the United States and have respect for the Constitution and our laws, but realize the current administration does not.
Even though the theory is I feel is extremely far fetched, several good points are made in this email we received. Since the author took the time to share it, well, I am going to share it here. I like to encourage different perspectives, even if I disagree with them.
Enjoy, Robin - CT - Editor in Chief.
I had to take my vehicle to a 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 will 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 a ‘National Emergency” situation, will remain in office as the only way possible to save our Nation.
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 want more Obama. The law prohibits him from being re-elected so the only way 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 and changing the country to fit his stated goals. Saul Alinsky would look on from hell - filled with pride - because his teachings and prophecy would be fulfilled.
I thanked Pete for the ride home – and for messing up my day. Now I’ve got more things to worry about!
