In the presidential election of 1824, Andrew Jackson received a plurality, but not a majority, of electoral votes cast. The election was thrown to the House, and John Quincy Adams was elected president. A deep rivalry resulted between Andrew Jackson and House Speaker Henry Clay, who had also been a candidate in the election.
|20200809 19:54||Skidmark||That Pan guy asks some interesting questions.|
|20200809 19:45||Skidmark||Thanks to Bobby for the Cornell Law School reference.|
|20200809 19:44||Skidmark||3 U.S. Code § 19.Vacancy in offices of both President and Vice President; officers eligible to act|
(1)If, by reason of death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify, there is neither a President nor Vice President to discharge the powers and duties of the office of President, then the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall, upon his resignation as Speaker and as Representative in Congress, act as President.
(2)The same rule shall apply in the case of the death, resignation, removal from office, or inability of an individual acting as President under this subsection.
|20200809 17:01||trailing wife||I expect Mr. Trump will do very badly in 100% mail-in vote states, which will subsequently be revealed to have a very high rate of lost and rejected ballots, not to mention bins of votes discovered stashed around post offices after the submission deadline, but he will sweep the rest. And the screams will rise up that the fact that this does not match poll predictions proves he stole the election.|
After the first ballot, the Electoral College delegates can vote as they choose in subsequent ballots, as I recall. I don’t think the vote has gone to Congress to resolve since the Constitution was passed. Meaning this is yet another Hail Mary idea to get around the will of the populace that won’t be needed — in 2016 they were talking about EC delegates voting their conscience instead of their commitment to Trump, about the Supreme Court getting involved, and so forth.
What are you feeding, Skidmark? I seem to recall that a quarter of gun-owning households recently gained that status, and now they all need guns and bullets...
|20200809 16:34||Skidmark||Went into town Saturday for some feed.|
First time in about 3 weeks. Scary.
The gun dept was out of pistols, ARs and big bore rifles. The clerk was telling a guy they couldn't guarantee a 3 week delivery.
Ammo shelves were mostly empty. Birdshot and .22 was left. Limit 1 brick/10 boxes of .22 per customer.
I suppose some are warming up for deer season.
|20200809 13:42||Skidmark||What happens if no presidential candidate gets 270 electoral votes?|
If no candidate receives a majority of electoral votes, the Presidential election leaves the Electoral College process and moves to Congress.
The House of Representatives elects the President from the 3 Presidential candidates who received the most electoral votes. Each State delegation has one vote and it is up to the individual States to determine how to vote. (Since the District of Columbia is not a State, it has no State delegation in the House and cannot vote). A candidate must receive at least 26 votes (a majority of the States) to be elected.
The Senate elects the Vice President from the 2 Vice Presidential candidates with the most electoral votes. Each Senator casts one vote for Vice President. (Since the District of Columbia is has no Senators and is not represented in the vote). A candidate must receive at least 51 votes (a majority of Senators) to be elected.
If the House of Representatives fails to elect a President by Inauguration Day, the Vice-President Elect serves as acting President until the deadlock is resolved in the House.
|20200809 10:59||49 Pan||So there is some posts going around social media that states if there is not clear winner for the presidential elections by Jan 20th, the speaker of the house takes over the presidency. |
IS that true? does anyone know the truth here?
If so, it explains the hundreds of laws suits pending for after this election.

She gave me a list of things to do.

|20200803 10:27||Deacon Blues||A soldier in WWII lost his right eye in battle and decided to become a priest. He did and went to Africa, learned to fly and ministered to people all over. During one flight there was a storm and he crashed. He lost his left arm. While in the hospital he contracted a rare disease that turned his skin purple. Years later he became an Archbishop and was in line to become Pope. He wasn't elected. People weren't ready for a one eyed one armed purple papal leader.|

|20200730 16:57||Thing From Snowy Mountain||I don't know if maybe it needs to be posted to page 3 or something here too.|
|20200730 16:56||Thing From Snowy Mountain||TW: you might want to do the same as Cingold did, and look at your browser's print option and see if it has a "save to pdf" option.|
|20200729 11:31||trailing wife||I saved the Gummibear link, Snowy Thing, with thanks.|
|20200729 02:48||Cingold||Thanks, TFSM. It is horrifying that medicine is being politicized by Chinophile quislings and self-dealing charlatans.|
I nabbed your gummibear link and PDF'd it. I've seen stuff disappear, too, like James M. Todaro, MD, and Gregory J. Rigano, Esq.'s "An Effective Treatment for Coronavirus (COVID-19)," which was hosted on Google Docs since March 13, 2020, but was recently removed by Google.
Not sure I buy all the postulates of Yoichi Shimatsu's "Wuhan nCoV Proves Useful For A Malthusian Cull Of Aging Societies - Part 6," Rense (2-12-2020) https://rense.com/general96/wuhan-ncov-proves-useful-for-a-malthusian-cull-of-aging-societies-part6.php, but -- given all that's going on -- it sure seems all too plausible.
|20200728 22:10||Skidmark||Good detail, TFSM.|
|20200728 20:08||Thing From Snowy Mountain||That chart should be self explanatory.It shows the death rate from the disease in Switzerland with when-they-banned-HCQ and when-they-quit-the-ban marked. There's a lag between when the death rate goes up and back down afterwards in each case.|
|20200728 20:05||Thing From Snowy Mountain||Test to see if this link works:|
|20200728 20:03||Thing From Snowy Mountain||Cingold, I think the proof that the virus is engineered is the way the establishment has worked so hard to to politicize an actual helpful treatment we got for it.|
Check this out:
While you can, because twitter is trying to scrub material from their network showing everyone what they've done.
|20200728 19:48||trailing wife||Poor old Joe has lost track of how many toes he is supposed to have. It wouldn’t be fair to ask him to explain the words that came out of his mouth, Jan.|
|20200728 17:22||Jan||Seen on Twitter; Biden says he's running because he has 2 qualities that aren’t always relevant for President; 1) Foreign Policy and 2) bringing people together. Can someone in Media please go ask Biden when Foreign policy isn’t relevant?|
|20200727 23:11||trailing wife||Spam here is not quite auto-cleaning, Cingold, so the moderators periodically do a cleaning run, like lotp used to in the old days. Fred runs Rantburg proper a bit differently, for some reason.|
|20200727 23:06||Cingold||I see how the trolls are spamming. What a pain!|
|20200727 21:31||Cingold||No worries, Frank G.|
It was a bit outside of my usual ramblings, but (for the some 10-20% of the population that this thing is problematic for) the virus is devastating -- about half of those are going to die without an effective treatment, and almost the same number will be incapacitated for months. The other 80-90% of the population will think there's way too much alarm over this novel flu-like virus; always a great way to sow division. Since I'm a bit paranoid, I wonder if Unrestricted Warfare might be involved -- but I digress . . .
As long as the next pandemic (an October surprise?) is an enveloped virus, the same kind of treatment (e.g., Hesperidin, Bromhexine, Ivermectin) would be useful, but not if the new virus doesn't have the same kind of lipid membrane envelope. I guess it is a wait and see and react quickly scenario, and hopefully I'm just paranoid that something badder will happen this fall.
|20200727 19:53||Frank G||Sorry Cingold, I was deleting Spam and inadvertently caught yours:|
Not meaning to get out of my lane (and knowing Trailing Wife is in much better stead in this arena — /hat tip/), but feel compelled to share that one response to COVID-19 is a low cost, very safe, widely available, solution:
Block host cell reception & strip off the virus’s protective coating (without cytotoxcity at even 10x regular dosing). See https://t.co/scBAXDisd2. Oh, and I’d say it can’t hurt to wash it all down with some extra zinc with tonic water (with real quinine). BTW, high amounts of Hesperidin are in orange peels, but you’d have to be some place like NZ to get Bromhexine. Clinical trials on Ivermectin are coming out positive at even standard dosing.
Hope this helps somebody.
|20200723 18:09||Alaska Paul||I talked to Canadian Border Service officer at ALCAN customs office at Beaver Creek,Yukon on the phone. Canadian Border is closed to non essential travel. We were going to drive our truck down to NW Washington for wife’s work. She is eligible but not me. |
So it goes. I can understand why Canadians are reluctant with the spikes in Covid from partygoers in US. And demonstrations/riots too. The Alcan highway is a great drive.
|20200718 09:15||Deacon Blues||I'm no governor but I was shutting down bars long before the Covid virus|
|20200717 21:04||trailing wife||I look forward to it, my dear.|
|20200717 10:13||Whiskey Mike||It was an "original post" in the sense that I had extracted a comment from an article not posted anywhere on RB, then wrote about the extract. I gave the original document credit, so no plagiarism. I saved the text, but have forgotten which computer it was saved on or where. Brain dead on my part. Let it die. I'll be more organized next time.|
|20200714 04:04||SCFI||Thanks TW, I dunno why it wouldn't post, far as I can tell, it's SFW and nothing spammy about it.|
|20200713 18:25||Frank G||that comment looked fine as-is...|
|20200713 18:06||trailing wife||Seeking cure, your comment is now posted. On the first try, so I’m not sure what happened.|
Whiskey :Mike, I see no article with your nym on it either in the Burg or in the hopper for tomorrow. What were you trying to post? Or was it an original opinion of your own? Either is fine, I’d just like to get this straightened out.
|20200713 10:42||SCFI||I typed the following in respond to another comment at https://rantburg.com/poparticle.php?D=07/13/2020&SO=&HC=3&ID=576752|
I tried several times but it would not take, so I'm posting it here (within the square brackets) in the hope one of the mods will post it for me.
[Re #4 "To lose a hull is total BS."
No it's possible for an otherwise intact hull to be a total loss. Keep in mind it's a warship and as such the hull has to use special grades of steel in order to withstand torpedos and missiles. A massive fire will weaken the steel to the point where (almost) a BB gun and shoot a pellet thru the hull, in which case, it's unsuitable to be a warship and thus be declared a total loss.
So not BS after all.]
|20200713 09:39||Whiskey Mike||Sorry mods. I submitted a brief article in Opinion and it vanished. I probably screwed it up. Hangs head.|
|20200712 20:48||Frank G||good. got it|
|20200712 20:24||Deacon Blues||Some of the black residents were watching. One lady and one gentleman told me they didn't understand why the protesters came to Rogersville and wanted them to leave. They made their position known to the protesters.|
|20200712 20:21||Deacon Blues||The protesters were behaving themselves. Those neo-nazis were trying to start trouble. The citizens here in Rogersville won't put up with that. Antifa and neo-nazis are not welcome and will be confronted . So will the KKK.|
|20200712 19:29||Frank G||So only Counter-Protesters were arrested?|
|20200712 18:29||Deacon Blues||Here is a link to a local newspaper report of the protest yesterday.|
|20200712 17:43||trailing wife||I’m an innocent bystander in all the under-the-hood technical stuff, Seeking cure. My only rôle is to forward information from observers to fixers, much as I do at home between the craftsmen and technicians who do/fix stuff and Mr. Wife in engineering mode. ;-)|
|20200712 12:02||SCFI||(Throw stuffed frog at Deacon Blues) That was a bad pun DB...|
I like the new color changes and see the comment box is fixed. It's a pleasure to read! Now what appears to be left is to fix the "new comment" preview windows as it's still "boxed".
Thanks TW and Fred (and Frank as well) for staying on top of this
|20200712 09:38||Skidmark||Thank you Fred.|
|20200712 09:15||Whiskey Mike||I can see again!|

|20200712 08:41||Deacon Blues||There were 4 young men who dressed like ANTIFA and claimed to be. They started getting beligerant and were immediately arrested. That's about it.|
|20200711 22:33||Deacon Blues||The overwhelming number of the protesters were college age white females. I will say the protesters were very respectful and did not use bad language. I did get to talk to one black man and told him most whites will not pay attention to BLM until the black community addresses the huge problem of black on black crime. I asked when the protests were going to start in relation to that 7 year old black girl getting murdered by those BLM people. He had no answer. All in all it was a peaceful but useless protest.|
|20200711 21:16||Thing From Snowy Mountain||Glenmore, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.|
|20200711 19:57||Dave D.||So it was a fizzle? That' a relief.|
|20200711 19:28||Deacon Blues||Very small protest crowd. maybe 50|
|20200711 19:25||Deacon Blues||I've seen only one "protester carrying a firearm. He is black.|
|20200711 19:19||Deacon Blues||Jan, I'm here in Rogersville. A full 90% of the protesters are white. One sign reads End the War on People of Color. Another being held by an older white woman reads I Use my White Privilege to say Black Lives matter. Most are college kids. I will have to complement them for picking up their trash. Heavy police presence.|

|20200710 14:03||Thing From Snowy Mountain||One of the things that pisses me off about this is that a black friend and former co-worker was shot to death in the month before the current shitstorm entered its Black Lives Matter phase but since he wasn't (as far as anyone knows) shot by the police it doesn't matter to anyone.|
