20200809 19:55 Skidmark I don’t think the vote has gone to Congress to resolve since the Constitution was passed.

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

(a)
(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.
20200803 12:40 Skidmark My housekeeper called.
She's working from home today.
She gave me a list of things to do.
20200803 10:29 Visitor I screwed up. It should be one eyed one armed flying purple papal leader
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.
20200731 18:45 Dave D. Deacon, you need more tequila.
20200731 11:14 Frank G *GROAN*
20200731 10:01 Deacon Blues I was at the snail races one time. The snails had letters painted on their shells. One snail, with an S, was leaving the others in it's dust. One of the spectators shouted, "WOW. Look at that S car go!".
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.
