    What is your source for all this? According to this from nbcnews.com (and the writer is unapologetically cheering for Trump's demise), if the house elections are not held on Nov. 3rd, the seats become vacant on Jan. 3 and can be filled only by a special election. Pelosi is out; she does not retain some secret hold on the Speaker post. It is vacant, and Presidential Succession moves on to the Senate Pro-Tempore. In the writer's wet dream, that would be Democrat Patrick Leahy. He assumes that, with one-third of the Senate also vacated with postponed elections that the Democrats will take control of the Senate. But the governor's do hold the authority to fill vacated Senate seats, and while its possible the appointments would lead to a majority change, it may not. If the GOP retains a Senate majority, Presidential Succession falls to the current Pro-Temp, Charles Grassley.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Security_and_Homeland_Security_Presidential_Directive

    The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-20, sometimes called simply "Executive Directive 51" for short), signed by President of the United States George W. Bush on May 4, 2007, is a Presidential Directive establishing a comprehensive policy on the federal government structures and operations in the event of a "catastrophic emergency". Such an emergency is defined as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."

    Maybe not yet, but we've never dealt with a pandemic during a Presidential election, at least in our life time. If you can't see the potential issues with mail in (not absentee) ballots, you are short sighted. Look at kcal's post on a simple experiment run locally and just imagine that on a national level? And I know this may sound a little conspiracy theorist-ish, but with the postal union throwing their support to Biden, the potential for abuse is there.

    Maybe, but as much Trump hate as there was on election night, since then is off the charts. Again, it's short sighted to think that there's not a silent majority out there just waiting for the election. Will it be enough? Hopefully

    Ha, Just what do you think will happen if Biden wins. He's a cuck. The REAL power will be behind the scenes in the hands of the like of Kimala Harris, AOC, Ilhan Omar, and others that hate America and are trying to push their socialist agenda. You'll beg for the days of Trump if that happens.

    Exactly

    DUDE! When I saw that, I nearly choked on my dinner. Then Carlson had one of the funniest lines in the history of TV. 'If you've ever blown air into the nostrils of Joe Biden, we'd love to hear from you.' That was so funny.

    I'll just drop this here. Kind of funny isn't it, the media and Democrats claims no voter fraud exists.
    Here's a thought, you really think people that use the federal government to spy on opponents, harass Christians, imprison and spy on journalists they don't agree with, uses the IRS against nonprofits that don't agree with them and registers illegal aliens to vote are somehow above stuffing the ballot box?

    Ya know, that you would even consider such a scheme speaks VOLUMES about your character. And if the Democrats pulled off such a scheme, it would expose the truth of the Democrats, and Pelosi would be impeached before she was even inaugurated.

    You really do hate this country don’t you. Hell, move to China and be Happy NC.

    The brilliance in Trumps tweet is now everyone is on record that the show must go on. I personally welcome live debates with Biden and Trump.

    I mean, we all agree, the show must go on!

    Not sure China would take him. Maybe Venezuela or Iran but even they might send him back he would be too feminine to make it there.
