The general election is panning out like a Greek tragedy where Hillary is a Medea-like character. It’s as if she’s the vengeful princess who refuses to stop until she achieves the highest office in the land – even going so far as to sabotage a fellow party candidate to reach her goals.
Hillary Clinton is still strong enough to step on – or over – anybody, regardless of how mainstream the news is about her health.
Previously, she had emphatically dismissed all observations made regarding her health, calling the “conspiracy theories” ridiculous and not worthy of her campaign staff’s attention.
Now, after a video went viral showing Hillary Clinton suddenly fainting in New York City, her staff has finally been forced to address her health issue, recently admitting she had been suffering from pneumonia.
At first, Hillary’s campaign lied about the incident, saying she had “overheated”. But ironically – now that they had to come clean – they’re claiming Hillary’s health condition is totally normal because, “everyone gets sick.”
However, Clinton’s own Secret Service agents are terrified by her recent medical complications. One undisclosed agent confessed, “Hillary’s campaign will be forced into making a big announcement soon regarding her medical condition.”
The agent also claimed that the van used to transport Hillary had to be specially fitted with disabled access and boosted by video surveillance which showed Hillary having to be helped into the vehicle by her aides.
Now the Democratic National Committee’s top strategists are holding secret crisis meetings about whether or not to replace Hillary with another candidate. Bernie Sanders name has been thrown around, although Joe Biden seems to be the leading contender.
But one plausible tactic the DNC could implement is suspending the election altogether.
“The Democratic National Committee reserves the right to replace a candidate who dies or drops out, and it doesn’t provide additional details in its by-laws. So presumably the Democrats would have to make up the process up as they go along.”
This may also mean a possible – yet temporary – third term for President Obama.
The U.S. News & World Report noted about the possibility of an Obama third term:
“The presidential election could be delayed or scrapped altogether if conspiracy theories become predictive and a candidate dies or drops out before Nov. 8.”
Another possibility is President Obama could enforce martial law to suspend the election date:
“On October 17, 2006, President Bush signed into law, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, which affords the president (any president) the ability to declare a ‘public emergency’ at his own discretion, and place federal troops anywhere throughout the United States.
Under this law, the president also now has the authority to federalize National Guard troops without the consent of state governors, in order to restore ‘public order.’ The President can now deploy federal troops to U.S. cities, at will, which eliminates the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act.”
And then, in December 2011, Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act into law, which allows an indefinite detention amongst United States citizens without charge by the military.
Another possible outcome is that the Electoral College could choose the next president without public voting at all.
Congress could postpone the election date and make Speaker of the House Paul Ryan as president de facto until such date was set.
On the other hand, the Democrats could refuse the previous mentions and rely on Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, or even Tim Kaine to compete against Donald Trump in a Hail Mary desperate heave.
What do you think? What is the best possible situation?
