Pelosi raises possibility of becoming acting
president in chaotic election outcome

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 10/3/2020 5:26:48 AM

Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised the possibility that she might become acting president if neither President Trump nor Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins enough electoral votes to declare victory in the election on or after Nov. 3. Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters Thursday that she is preparing House Democrats for a potential role in determining the winner with a vote by each state delegation. But if a majority still does not emerge for either Trump or Biden, Pelosi said, “then it goes into another range where the speaker becomes the [president]. It’s complicated after that.” It is rare for the House to play a role in determining the outcome

Nancy will never be president. Acting or otherwise. The chances of a tie are very very slim. We are more likely to get a handful of democrats to vote for Barrett for the Supremes. She makes two assumptions: 1. The dems will hold the house, 2: she will be speaker in 2021.

Seriously........These dims have totally lost their minds. Can you imagine either Biden or Pelosi sitting in the Oval office talking to top officials of foreign countries? Neither can say a complete sentence without stumbling through it. We can only pray that this kind of situation will never happen .

We all may think this is a joke, but it is all part of the plan. It has been part of the plan since Mail-in ballots started being pushed. Just remember this. The 2nd. Amendment was not put in the Constitution so that we could hunt for food. It was put in the Constitution to prevent people like Pelosi from taking control of our Government. The Democrats have not been infringing on that Amendment for years for no reason. Pelosi sitting in the Oval office is a frightening thought. Also remember that the Democrats have already made plans to force Donald Trump out of the White House should this abomination take place. An abomination that could bring on a Civil War.

I cannot believe how utterly cartoonish this woman is. You know she is salivating at the thought of sitting in the Oval Office. The American people cringe as they watch her attempt to expel whatever outrageous thoughts she tries to pass through a jaw that appears most of the time to be unhinged on one side. She is a vicious old witch that somehow controls every democrat member of the House. Corralling those misfits in a meeting must be similar to an evening at the bar scene in Star Wars. I cannot believe they are actually ever taken seriously, but they are deadly serious as we are witnessing. It shames the country when one of the two majors political parties is so lawless, evil, and corrupt. While Nancy may be a good fit to be their leader, it would be an abomination to see her sit at the Resolute Desk. I shudder at the thought.

Delusions of grandeur, and given the election timeline, highly unlikely to happen. The election is November 3. The Electoral College meets to vote on December 14. Even if no one were to win a majority in the EC, Trump would still remain POTUS until January 20, 2021. The new Congressional session begins January 3. If the GOP wins the House in November, Queen Nancy will lose her crown on Jan 3. And even if the Rats hold the House, there's still 37 days between the Electoral College meeting date and Inauguration Day, ample time for the House to perform its Constitutional duty to resolve the election. And were Pelosi to try to drag her feet so as to crown herself Acting POTUS, well, we don't even want to ponder the dire consequences of that.

I will be the first here to say what #20 implies: the president's infection with COVID despite elaborate protocols designed for his safety, as well as the timing of his infection in the final month before the election, leads me to suspect that he might have been deliberately infected. If that sounds like a preposterous, nutty conspiracy theory, bear in mind that President Trump has already been subjected to a preposterous, nutty conspiracy involving a dossier of bizarre claims which was used to obtain wiretapping approval from a FISA court. The attempted coup involved many federal agencies, including most prominently CIA and FBI. My point: conspiracy theorists tend to be batty. Yet some conspiracies are real. Bear in mind, as well, that absolutely NOTHING happened to those who we know very well were part of the coup attempt. Why would they, or others, not try again? President Trump is a dynamo, and he will beat the virus, just as almost everyone does. But given the timing, with only weeks to go before the election, it is almost certain that he will be slowed down and unable to keep up the whirlwind of rallies, sometimes several in one day, that has become his style and his great political strength. 2020 has been the year in which the unbelievable, the bizarre, the chaotic, became the norm. What would have been unimaginable in earlier times-- the POTUS surreptitiously infected by his political opponents with a potentially lethal virus-- fits the dark patterns of the times. If what I have suggested is true, it will blowback in the perpetrators' faces. There is a tidal uprush of love and support for President Trump, and it will show itself at the polls next month. Call me a conspiracy nut. What I have said is what many sober, rational people are privately thinking.

Don't waste your time, Nanie. You forget that those same ballots (ineligible ones and eligible ones) were used for voting for all congressional offices as well as for President. Therefore, in your House district, the ballots used for voting for President are the same ones used for voting for your seat. If the election is contested, these ballots would be subject to verification same as all others outside of your district. If the outcome is not determine until January, this means your re-election results cannot be certified until the President's is. Under the Constitution, your term expires on January 3rd. The President's term expires on January 20th. So, you can't be President, Nanie, not even for a day because your term will have expired. Have a nice day, Nanie. Your uneven eye lids are twitching now.

It’s probably part of an extreme leftist Democrat plan, that if the election result appears close, to jamb up the election result, by filing court cases all over the country and obtaining all sorts of delays and injunctions from activist liberal Democrat Judges lasting past January 20, 2021, so that with no clear election result both President Trump’s and Vice-President Pence’s terms in office would end on that date, with Speaker Pelosi then moving into the White House as the unelected acting President. In the past Pelosi has made statements to the effect that Trump will be out of the White House on January 20, 2021 one way or the other. The problem for that Democrat plan would be the Supreme Court, especially with the new Justice Barrett on the Court.

I highly recommend watching Beck's three part series on what the Marxists are doing right now to take over the government, especially the TIP stuff. Yeah, it'll require a BlazeTV subscription for a hundred bucks per year and yeah, I know, the Blaze format leaves much to be desired but the info is well worth the cost. Beck uses THEIR words and not his and the research is flawless. The timing of this is very suspicious. Beck never said that but I certainly believe it is based on the takeover and how all the BLM, antifa, critical race theory, mail-in ballots, post election refusal to accept the results, declaring Trump is now doing exactly what they are doing (when there is zero evidence that he is doing it but absolute proof they have been doing it by design, etc). Trump's recent Chicom virus and Pelosi and the other Marxists' capitalizing on it is just a new, unplanned added benefit for the Marxists' planned takeover. This is all one organized and planned effort by very evil people. Funny how now so many Republicans just now caught the Chicom virus this close to the election. I don't believe this is by accident and I don't believe lots of elected Marxists weren't in on getting the president infected either.

The United States exists on a basis of law and order. The opposite of law and order is lawlessness and chaos. What is more lawless and chaotic than an invalid election where the winner cannot be determined, and a 'President' Pelosi that never received a single vote from the public.

Pandering to the stupidity of her supporters. 1. Congress is sworn in on January 3rd, if she isn't reelected or the Republicans regain control of the House she's out of power. 2. States have to have the votes counted by December 20th when the Electoral College meets. Well before January 20th inauguration date.

There is no scenario short of both TRUMP and Pence dying from COVID-19, if elected, or both Biden and Harris dying from COVID-19, if elected, that Pelosi has anything to do with the selecting the president. The election takes place and there is no Constitutional alternative than to count the votes. If TRUMP were elected but dies before being sworn in, per Amendment XX (1937), Section 3, the elected vice-president becomes president. If no one has a majority of electoral votes, in this case a tie per Amendment XII (1804), the HOUSE OF RPRESENTATIVES shall immediately by ballot choose the president and the Senate chooses the vice-president. This may be mathematically possible and would end up a split presidency/vice-presidency just like Congress. The other possibility is where no one knows who has been elected by the beginning of the next term per Amendment XX (1937), Section 3, Congress acts according to existing legislation to select the president/vice-president. This is probably what Pelosi is talking about, the election tied up due to contested ballots. Democrats tried to fraudulently impeach TRUMP, no doubt they will do whatever they have to hold up the vote count

The presidential succession act of 1947 which puts Nancy 3rd in line for the presidency and first in line if there is no agreed upon president elect on Inauguration Day has never been tested in court and is likely unconstitutional. Only an "officer" can succeed to the presidency and the Supreme Court has already determined that this means a member of the executive branch. That would put the Secretary of State in the White House with no term limit. He would be there until a president is elected. From Article II: "In Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office, the Same shall devolve on the Vice President, and the Congress may by law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected."

The rats are pushing a lot of chips in on the bet that one way or another they can steal our entire government right in front of us. Somehow the rat party thinks they have enough brainwashed followers to back them up. That if the right rises up and marches on DC to stop the coup, that their antifa goons will protect them and ultimately if they have to they think they can force the armed forces to back their coup. I almost wish it would go to that and settle this decades long cancer that is destroying the country. IF it has to be a war, please make it obvious to every moron rat voter that they want it ALL. They want the devastation and death that comes with every dictatorship. Let's pick sides and fight to the death once and for all. I don't think they will be that brave. IF they lose they will just go back to the undermining of everything in their way and try again later. That's what they have been doing since the commie sympathizer had FDR's ear in his inner circle.

She is salivating so much at this possibility it is disgusting. She got a taste of the Oval Office I think when Obama treated her like the co-president for all those years. Hence her inflated opinion of herself, and her fury that Trump would not play that game. Gotta get reelected first though, and I hope SF finally has a clue.

Nothing will start the next Civil War faster that this harpy trying to still power from the people. The Electoral College, as stated in our great Constitution will elect the POTUS in December just like it has since 1790 and a joint session of Congress will certify the results on January 6, 2021 ... while Trump is still President! Unfortunately, there may be some horse-trading that has to go on but there will be a decision ... and it won't be to make her POTUS! PS: If Trump wins in a blowout all this will be horse feathers.

#25 I agree. Seems odd that all of these Republicans tested positive. Looks like only Republicans and athletes are positive while Dems and rioters are never sick. It is worrisome if the SCJ nominee had the virus over the summer and was able to infect so many. My class met for the first time since March and one of the members, talking full blast with her mask off, had the virus. Nancy is full of herself. As someone on here said "She has been embalmed and doesn't realize it"

When the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic came to America earlier this year, Democrats rushed to score political points and demanded elections be conducted through the mail instead of in person. They did this thinking it would be politically advantageous and productive in bolstering victory for their candidates. When President Trump pointed out problems unprepared systems would have with an onslaught of untested, mass mail-in voting, Democrats doubled down in an effort to prove him wrong.

States run by Republican governors on average have economically outperformed states run by Democratic governors in recent months. The difference in economic growth is likely due to the pathway of the coronavirus pandemic in the first few months and the economic restrictions imposed by Democratic governors. Overall, Democratic-run states, particularly those in the Northeast and Midwest, had larger contractions in gross domestic product than Republican-run states in the Plains and the South, according to the latest state GDP data for the second quarter of 2020, released by the Commerce Department on Friday.

The former claim came at the virtual Al Smith dinner, the latter boast at last Tuesday’s debate. It is a measure of Joe Biden’s shamelessness that he seeks to snatch the Catholic and anti-Catholic vote at the same time. He is running with an open anti-Catholic bigot, Kamala Harris, who regards mere membership in the Knights of Columbus as a disqualifier for public service, while rolling out ads designed to hoodwink Catholics into voting for him. “Joe Biden’s campaign is launching three new ads this month targeted at religious voters,

It’s only been ten months since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were leaving the British royal family in search of “privacy” — yet they have never been so much in our faces, sanctimoniously and hypocritically telling us how to live and who to vote for, all while signing a reported $100 million deal with Netflix. Also, Markle is reportedly eyeing a run for president of the United States in 2024.

During a business trip to Michigan in the 1980s, I recall driving on a commercial street that ran north to south through various well-kept working-class neighborhoods. At one point, the road passed a "Welcome to Detroit" sign. Immediately the surroundings became bleak, with boarded up buildings and graffiti. It was a disturbing sight. That was nearly two decades before the rapper Eminem immortalized Detroit life in his movie, "8 Mile," which refers to the east-west thoroughfare that separates Detroit from its northern suburbs. "But yo, I gotta get out there, the only way I know," he sang. I kept driving until I got out of there,

Honda Motor Co said on Saturday it has confirmed a 17th U.S. death tied to a faulty Takata air bag inflator. The Japanese automaker said that after a joint inspection with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), it confirmed a faulty air bag inflator was to blame for the Aug. 20 crash of a 2002 Honda Civic that led to the death of a driver in Mesa, Arizona. The defect, which leads in rare instances to air bag inflators rupturing and sending metal fragments flying, prompted the largest automotive recall in U.S. history and is tied to 15 U.S. deaths in Honda vehicles

President Trump's campaign blasted Joe Biden for continuing to air negative ads while the president is fighting COVID-19 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland. Biden's campaign pledged Friday to take down all negative ads against Trump as the president battled the coronavirus, but TV spots criticizing the president were still running Saturday as the president was hospitalized. “Despite pledging to stop his negative advertising, nearly 100 negative Biden ads slandering the president and lying about his record have aired today while the president is at Walter Reed," Andrew Clark, Trump 2020 Campaign rapid response director, told Fox News on Saturday.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised the possibility that she might become acting president if neither President Trump nor Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins enough electoral votes to declare victory in the election on or after Nov. 3. Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters Thursday that she is preparing House Democrats for a potential role in determining the winner with a vote by each state delegation. But if a majority still does not emerge for either Trump or Biden, Pelosi said, “then it goes into another range where the speaker becomes the [president]. It’s complicated after that.” It is rare for the House to play a role in determining the outcome

New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) said Wednesday that the widely reported readmission of coronavirus patients to nursing homes at the height of the pandemic in the state "never happened." Cuomo said that despite a March 25 advisory issued by his administration barring nursing homes from denying admission to patients "solely based on a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19," readmissions never took place. He claimed that, because the state "never needed" those nursing home beds, readmitting COVID-positive patients "just never happened."

News that President and Mrs. Trump have tested positive for the coronavirus, announced by the President this morning, will no doubt be met by sneering and ill wishes by many of the President’s detractors. Yet it is being met by many more — millions of Americans, ourselves among them, and by millions abroad — with hopes and prayers for a speedy recovery. This is a moment to reflect on the nature of our republic. Our Constitution marries a system of democracy with a compact among sovereign states. It grants the power to choose the president to the states. If they reach a majority in the electoral college,

So, Donald Trump has the Wuhan pangolin virus, and of course he does because it’s 2020 and how could he not have it? With this year, you take the most random scenario, you multiply it by 10, gobble a handful of the brown acid, and just go with it, and even then the whole thing spins even more out of control than you ever imagined. Now the question is what this all means for the campaign. I bet it helps Trump. Joe Biden’s got to be worried. Well, Grandpa Badfinger‘s handlers have to be worried.

“Hush! Hush! Hush! Here comes the Bogeyman! Don’t let him come too close to you, He’ll catch you if he can!” — Henry Hall (1932) On Thursday night, President Trump announced that he and Melania had contracted Covid-19 and were both in quarantine. His physician reported that the president was showing mild symptoms, and on Friday evening he was taken to Walter Reed Hospital. As expected, many on the left openly celebrated Trump’s illness, wishing upon him all manner of suffering and death. In general, though, the response of mainstream Democratic players was muted, even polite. Why? Perhaps because they know a sick person (even this president) engenders sympathy among decent people, many of whom are undecided voters.

A former top FBI official on Thursday proposed that a “bipartisan commission” be created to vet presidential candidates so people like President Trump can never be elected again. “We got this wrong, and this can’t happen again,” said Frank Figliuzzi, who was briefly the assistant director of the FBI under President Obama. During a discussion on MSNBC about Trump’s taxes Thursday morning, Figliuzzi opined that the president’s supposedly dire financial situation made him “vulnerable” to certain entities like {{{Russia}}}. (Snip) He suggested that the media in 2016 didn’t dig “deeply enough” to find dirt on Trump, and added “it’s time to have a discussion about a bipartisan committee that demands tax

Game 1 averaged only a 4.1 rating and 7.41 million viewers on ABC, “comfortably the lowest rated and least-watched NBA Finals game on record (dates back to 1988),” Sports Media Watch reported.

Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, campaigned in the Twin Cities on Saturday, making stops in St. Paul and speaking to supporters in Minneapolis. Drawing what one outlet described as “a small, but energized crowd of women deemed ‘Women for Biden,'” at her last stop, Biden appeared happy to appear in her husband’s stead while pushing his political agenda. The dozen or so supporters were kept at a distance by standing inside hula hoops placed at six-foot intervals to hear her speak.
