Hello everyone. Following up on earlier thread today:

Yes the President can delay the election.

No that does not mean a Democrat will take over.

My opinion, let's review the logic.

Thank you Adrienne for asking. https://twitter.com/Adrienne711/status/1250434401789284352
Let's remember where we are at right now.

1. State of war
Authorization to Use Military Force, 2001 - never revoked.
3. Rebellion

"The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it."

- U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 9, Clause 2
What is "habeas corpus?"

"Habeas corpus is a concept of law, in which a person may not be held by the government without a valid reason for being held....Suspension of habeas corpus is often equated with martial law." https://usconstitution.net/consttop_mlaw.html
Many say that "only Congress can declare martial law, b/c Congress alone is granted the power to suspend the writ. The President, however, is commander-in-chief of the military, & it has been argued that the President can take it upon himself to declare martial law."
In such a case, there are three options available to Congress.
Option 1: "decide not to act, effectively accepting martial law by failing to stop it"
Option 2: "agree to the declaration, putting the official stamp of approval on the declaration"
Option 3: "reject the President's imposition of martial law, which could set up a power struggle between the Congress and the Executive that only the Judiciary would be able to resolve."
So let's recap. If the United States is in a state of rebellion, the individual has no right to challenge detention by the government.

If this starts happening, we are in a state of martial law.

If Congress does not go along with martial law, the Supreme Court decides.
Right now, we are definitively in a state of war,
definitively in a state of national emergency,
and arguably in a state of national rebellion.
Listen to what former President Obama said about President Trump: He called him an "occupier" of the Presidency. https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1250116063255310337
Sorry, that's not the one - that's the endorsement for Biden.

Here it is. https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1250096852176953345
Listen to his words:

"If there's one thing *everybody* has learned by now, it's that the Republicans OCCUPYING the White House and RUNNING the U.S. Senate, are not interested in progress. They're interested in power."
"Repeatedly, they've disregarded American principles of rule of law, and voting rights, and transparency."
"Bombshell evidence has just been uncovered by Attorney Jay Sekulow, proving that Barack Obama, in his last days in the White House, set up a coup by a secret executive order to overthrow President Donald Trump, and that coup is going on right now."
"Sekulow, while investigating the General Mike Flynn scandal, discovered what Obama hoped would never be found...."
"After Donald Trump won the presidency, Barack Obama and his minions in the WH hatched a plan to ensure they could keep enough power to eventually overthrow the new president."
"Obama accomplished this by signing an executive order on January 3rd, 2017, with only 17 days left in office."
"According to Jay Sekulow, a well-known attorney who heads the American Center for Law and Justice, Obama set-up a plan for the intelligence community to target President Trump through a secret executive order that Sekulow has uncovered."
"Specifically through the use of a lame-duck executive order, President Obama authorized multiple intelligence agencies to have access to Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) including phone call intercepts. [via Conservative Treehouse]"
"As the New York Times reported earlier this week, in its final days, the Obama Administration expanded the power of the NSA to share globally intercepted personal communication with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying any privacy protections."
"The new rules were issued under section 2.3 of Executive Order 12333 after approval by two Obama Administration officials: Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Director of National Intelligence Director, James Clapper."
Back to ACLJ: "the new rules...'Procedures for the Availability or Dissemination of Raw Signals Intelligence Information by the NSA' significantly relaxed longstanding limits on what the NSA may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations."
"These operations are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. Surveillances include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls, and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches."
11/9/16 "Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper have asked President Obama to fire Adm. Michael Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, the Washington Post reported" https://thehill.com/policy/defense/306894-report-clapper-carter-recommended-obama-fire-nsa-head
Look at the signatures on that Executive Order Obama sneakily put through.

James Clapper
Loretta Lynch

However, on the SAME day that Rogers met with the transition team, the news media carried an announcement that the team was moving to Bedminster, out of Trump Tower.
"Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee...has disclosed that he has seen evidence that Trump presidential transition officials had their communications monitored during the Obama administration"
"He also said that the inadvertent interceptions were then subject to “unmasking” where intelligence officials actively and knowingly attached the names of the parties to transcripts and then circulated the information widely within the intelligence community."
" If true, that would clearly support a part of the president’s allegations [that Obama spied on him] and raise very serious questions about the improper use of surveillance."
Now look at the language in the executive order. It says

"The purpose of these Procedures is to enable IC elements to conduct
their national security missions more effectively by providing them with access to raw SIGINT from NSA"
"These Procedures do not apply to:
1. (U) NSA 's SIGINT activities...
2. (U) FISA information."
To be clear, this is a SECRET order (look at the bottom of the page) that was made NON-SECRET which tells the NSA to SECRETLY change the way it does business, with few exceptions, but one of those is the FISA (and we know that process was tampered with). https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/codification/executive-order/12333.html
Do you see how clear the rebellion is here?

The former President of the United States -- who had a conflict of interest, because he was a Democrat trying to help a Democrat get elected -- issued an order that compromised the Republican candidate.
"Prior to these changes, the NSA filtered information before sharing...only passed on information deemed pertinent before the new order screening out the identities of innocent people and irrelevant personal information."
"Under the new rules, agencies & individuals can ask the NSA 4 access to specific surveillance feeds premised on the claim that they contain relevant info...useful to a particular mission. Then the NSA has the discretion to grant such requests if it deems the request reasonable."
You want to talk about leaks? Forget leaks - this is basically a blank check for an unscrupulous party to completely compromise the election, and the Presidency.
DOJ goes to the FISA court, relying on a bogus "pee pee dossier" to get a warrant for one of the most sensitive surveillance tools out there!

The DNC and the Clinton campaign paid for this thing!

Even after all of this - @POTUS tried to govern.

But they wouldn't stop: Russiagate! Ukrainegate! on and on.

And he could have done what President Lincoln did, proclaim martial law.
"When Lincoln and the military refused to honor the writ, Chief Justice Taney in Ex-parte MERRYMAN declared Lincoln's suspension of habeas corpus unconstitutional. Lincoln and the military ignored Taney's ruling."
"On Sept. 24, 1862, President Lincoln issued the following proclamation suspending the right to writs of habeas corpus nationwide:"
"By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation

Whereas, it has become necessary to call into service not only volunteers but also portions of the militia of the States by draft in order to suppress the insurrection existing in the United States,"
"and disloyal persons are not adequately restrained by the ordinary processes of law from hindering this measure and from giving aid and comfort in various ways to the insurrection;"
"Now, therefore, be it ordered, first, that during the existing insurrection and as a necessary measure for suppressing the same, all Rebels and Insurgents, their aiders and abettors within the United States, and all persons"
"discouraging volunteer enlistments, resisting militia drafts, or guilty of any disloyal practice, affording aid and comfort to Rebels against the authority of United States,"
"shall be subject to martial law and liable to trial and punishment by Courts Martial or Military Commission:"
"…during extensive riots or when disobedience of the law becomes widespread
…to stabilize insurrections or perceived insurrections
…when the government is threatened
…in a time of war (e.g. foreign invasion)
…in a time of war (e.g. civil war)
…a coup d’état"
Josh Douglas...election law scholar at the U of KY Law School,doesn’t believe so. “Even [martial law] would likely not give him power to postpone election or delay end of his term on 1/20/2021.As SC said in ex parte Milligan (1866), martial law does not suspend the Constitution.”
"But Ian Millhiser, a senior correspondent at Vox, where he covers Supreme Court issues, points out that the courts usually defer to national security decisions made by presidents."
The complicating factor here is that we have U.S. government officials, up to and including the former President of the United States, arguably carrying out an ongoing coup d'etat for the past four years.

They are the traitors and can't run for office.
18 U.S. Code § 2383.

"Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the U.S. or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto...shall be incapable of holding any office under the U.S." https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2383
It should also be noted that the President is responsible for the continuity of government in case of any disaster.

This unofficial website has links to a lot of information about continuity of government.
Q today assured us that the President is fighting back against the coup in ways that are absolutely legal.
As we fight back against these animals,
to take back our country from their sick and filthy and disgusting plans,
Q reminds us:

"These people are pure evil.
This is not about politics."
