    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.

    Why is it every time a president's term is up people start this drivel? Conservatives said this same shit about Clinton, then Dems said Bush was going to do it in 2008, now as sure as the sun will rise conspiracy kooks are claiming Obama will do it.

    No it is not, there has been no proclamation or military move or use of weapons from military sources that have been used against China..The War Powers Act on allows the President without Congressional approval allow the use of military arms and forces as an act of war until Congress can debate and declare a state of war....
    A little something that chaffs my hide as a journalist is these propagandizing ,,extreme,,,,,proclamations of opinions sans the facts...

    1. November Elections will happen unless the entire Government is wiped out and America is wiped off the face of the Earth.

    2. War with China will happen under the next term no matter which political party win. Bernie Sanders could win and I still believe a Proxy War will happen.

    3. You left out the wildcard that is Mexico. Mexico has no love for the country north of her, and would gladly join China and Russia with the eye on getting back California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas if they ( Mexico ) help China... So add them to your list of enemies...

    The reality is the U.S. is attempting to get nations like Vietnam and the Philippines to work together but those two nations are not strong enough to fight China if a war were to start. Japan is and has been on a leash and the question to me should the U.S. unleash Japan and let her put China in her place?

    Also you have North Korea and it threat against South Korea, Japan and other Asian Nations, and when China feels threaten they have their puppet state ( North Korea ) act up to draw the attention away from China actions.

    In the end I have written before about the threat in the South Chinese Sea and until recently nobody really cared, and now this mess will fall into the lap of the next President and war ( like this country has not seen enough of it ) is going to grow bigger and World War III is on it way.

    Africa, South and Central America and Mexico along with Asia will be the next test for the incoming President and no matter if it is Trump or Clinton the hostility between China and the U.S. will grow and Russia better watch her ass because China will sting her as soon as she does not need them anymore...

    “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.”

    Ignorant nonsense.

    We held a General Election during the Civil War with the Nation divided.

    “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?’

    lol

    Iran and Russia are not not ‘communist nations.’

    Extremists from both sides float this BS every four years, depending on who is in office. Democrats floated this out about Reagan and Bush, Republicans floated this out about Clinton and now Obama. Just stop the nonsense.
