Will the November elections be suspended due to war with China? The War Powers Act is still on the table should war between China and the United States become a reality. While the President may not have the power to suspend the November elections, Congress could grant authority to the executive branch to suspend the elections until a later date. World leaders gathered together for the G7 Summit which opened on May 26th, 2016 at Ise-Shima, a mountainous region of southwest Tokyo, Japan. The G7 leaders represent the following nations: USA, Germany, Italy, Canada, France, UK and Japan. The European Union is also represented within the G7. The G7 countries represent more than 64% of the world's wealth - estimated to be approximately $263 trillion. European Council President Donald Tusk was quoted as saying that the group (G7) needed to take a tougher stance on territorial disputes in the South China Sea. Beijing responded through their Xinhua news agency, stating that the G7 should “mind its own business” adding that Japan is exploiting its host status in an effort to isolate China. While the news media did not emphasize the importance of discussions about the South China Sea territorial dispute, it is evident that the matter has now become a global priority. The South China Sea dispute is growing. At the core of the dispute is ownership of the Senaku islands and the continental shelf between Japan and Taiwan which may be one of the most prolific oil reservoirs in the world according to a geophysical survey of the area published by the United Nations. Former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping deferred the question of ownership of the Senaku Islands to a “future generation.” Under his leadership China's watchword was hide your capabilities and bide your time. Today China is under new management and the days of hiding capabilities while biding time are over with. China's new leader Xi Jinping is guiding China in an entirely new direction. His message is emphasizing China's supremacy in the world by asserting herself openly and aggressively in the South China Sea. China is imposing her will upon her five smaller neighbors bordering those waters while daring anyone to do anything about it. Recently while in Hanoi, President Barack Obama stated that he hoped for a peaceful resolution regarding the South China Sea dispute. While the West may well be seeking a compromise with Xi Jinping concerning the dispute, the East would consider such an action to be nothing short of betrayal. Consider the words of former Chinese diplomatic spokesman Wu Jianmin when asked by a Japanese journalist, Would it be possible for a Chinese leader to speak (publicly) of compromise with China's neighbors? He responded, “You would be considered a traitor.” The mindset of the west and east are as far apart politically as they are geographically. At this juncture, ISIS and the conflict in the Middle East appear to be a diversionary tactic. The real conflict is playing out on the South China Sea with few realizing the potential for World War III. Consider the following scenario: If China does invade Taiwan and lay claim to the Senaku Islands and the South China Sea, G7 nations who support a western international order could take that as a sign that China has no intention of being a participant but rather intends to create their own international order. Russia would undoubtedly align themselves with China by backing her in a war against the United States. With North Korea aligning itself with their (secret) trade partners Russia and China and Iran, Cuba and other communist nations such as Nicaragua aligning themselves with their Russian &Chinese allies - an invasion is imminent. The American homeland would face a full on nuclear attack followed by a land / sea / air invasion unprecedented in American history. In such an event, Congress would have no choice but to grant authority to the executive branch to suspend November elections until a later time. Should China invade Taiwan prior to the November elections – there is a real possibility that President Barack Obama would remain in office indefinitely. World War III is coming and the American people should consider the old adage that timing is everything. A war prior to the election in November would be a strategical advantage for our enemies. For those who do not believe such a scenario is possible – ask yourselves the following question: If China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Cuba and other communist nations such as Nicaragua see the opportunity to unite and defeat the west – why would they submit to an international order that seeks to preserve what they desire to destroy? The short answer? They wouldn't. ______________ My sources: Prepare for War: South China Sea Dispute Escalating G7 summit opens in Japan – in pictures G7 Summit: Japan PM expresses concerns over slowdowns in growth in emerging economies Warning!
