Postponing the election: It’s a joke, or is it?

I so hope I’m wrong but I told friends that there would be no elections in November in the US.

Thank heavens for the Internet; it’s put the surprise back in October Surprise.

Here is the latest big-picture conspiracy theory, which has been gathering strength on the blogosphere the way a hurricane feeds on Caribbean waters: It is widely believed, both online and, increasingly, offline, that the Bush administration intends to declare martial law and postpone next month’s elections. To prevent Barack Obama’s inevitable ascension to the Oval Office, obviously.

This theory/rumor/delusion dates back almost a year and a half, with the appearance on the White House website of National Security Presidential Directive 51, which outlined a policy for “continuity of government” in the event of a national emergency.

  2. I don’t think it’s about preventing Obama becoming the president. He seems to me to clearly be the designated choice of the NWO, and Mccain the fall guy.
    The voting machine system there is likely rigged to a great degree, but I’m unsure really.
    Mccain did something that was authentically un-expected by picking Palin and the establishment doesn’t want her whatever you think of her politics.

    She is popular in Alaska for a few reasons and if some of them were to manifest in power, that would be the greatest hope in their political landscape for structural change mayby.
    But as you know, the marshall law preps. are well and truely in place, both on the ground and in the law.

    Some similar direction will be pushed here in NZ, the groundwork for that has been going on in the media dis-course for a while. The political system in NZ is pretty dys-functional, as shown last night by the party broadcast opening statements, and what ever happens in the form it takes after the election, the underlying monetary structure’s advances will continue to accelerate here while the population remains at odds about most things under the sun fighting over artificial scarcity.
