Another Hillary fail: No, Jared Kushner did not say he might postpone the November election
In fact, he said just the opposite
Wednesday, Hillary Clinton responded to a Times article which inadequately cited a conversation Jared Kushner, son-in-law of Trump, had with Time correspondent, Brian Bennett.
I can’t believe I have to write this sentence, but the president's son-in-law doesn't get to decide when the election is. https://t.co/7CrpHny6TF

If only Hillary had read what Kushner actually said.
Which was as follows (transcript from Reason):
“It’s not my decision to make,” said Kushner. Which is exactly the opposite of what Hillary couldn’t “believe she had to write.”
So, not to be all “Well Ackchyually,” but Hillary is actually, literally, dead wrong. Again.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
If this treasonous swine is not brought to justice, the next treasonous scumbag in the wings will repeat the treason with impunity.
Thank God for this woman’s incompetence and being so hatable. But for it, we’d be enslaved right now.
Tell her that we the deplorables will not postpone her funeral…..
The Gaslight known as Hillary Clinton.
The witch, obama, soros, schiff, pelosi, biden, kerry et al are part of a RICO conspiracy.
Here’s another multi-generational clusterpluck that needs an intense spotlight on it.
Several states in their policital history have had almost incesteous The Family group running state governments like dictatorships. California is one, Arkansas is another…..
“Moreover, Newsom is succeeding someone who could be considered his quasi-uncle, since his inauguration continues the decades-long saga of four San Francisco families intertwined by blood, by marriage, by money, by culture and, of course, by politics – the Browns, the Newsoms, the Pelosis and the Gettys.
The connections date back at least 80 years, to when Jerry Brown’s father, Pat Brown, ran for San Francisco district attorney, losing in 1939 but winning in 1943, with the help of his close friend and Gavin Newsom’s grandfather, businessman William Newsom.
Will she ever just go away?
The spawn of the Devil, this despicable piece of human refuse is the epitome of all that is evil.
And oh, but such a large family he has sired. It seems we keep discovering more of their cousins every day. Problem is nobody is doing anything about them.
Save a little of this “love” for Bennett. Does he not know that the day of the election is set by the Constitution, tired old product of dead white guys as it is, “.. first Tuesday after the first Monday in November…”
And maybe that could have been Kushner’s answer, too.
It certainly could have been. However, Kushner answered 100% correct that it is not his place to decide or enforce.
No, it is not. Nothing prevents Congress from postponing it, though not for very long. Which is why while Kushner did not bring the issue up, he couldn’t rule it out. How could he? He is not Congress and has no control over what it might do.
At the latest, though, the election would have to be held by the end of the year, because Congress’s term ends on Jan 3. If no election were held by then there would be no House, and only 67 senators (35 D and 32 R). And if a president were not elected by Jan 20, since there would be no speaker, the senate’s president pro tempore would take over until there was a president. Right now that would be Chuck Grassley, but the reduced senate’s D majority would presumably replace him with DiFi, since she would be its oldest member.
Hmmm. Would states be allowed to appoint Senators to fill the vacancies, and would it be in time to affect the President pro tem selection?
That’s a very good point. Thank you for raising it. The 17th amendment says that the temporary replacement provision kicks in “When vacancies happen in the representation of any state in the senate”. Normally we think of this clause in terms of casual vacancies, since vacancies due to a senator’s term having expired would automatically have been replaced by the last election, but the text doesn’t say so. It says “vacancies”, so that would include any vacancy.
So yes, you’re quite right, the 33 vacancies arising from the cancellation of the 2020 elections (should Congress decide to do so) would trigger this clause, and each vacancy could be filled by whatever provision that state’s legislature has made. And every time the majority shifted the presidency pro tem would switch between Grassley and DiFi.
The way I read it, Election Day is set by Congress. Meaning it CAN be changed, but it’s not up to Kushner (or the President).
“The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.”
I thought the election date was set by Congress in the 1840’s after the invention of the telegraph. Prior to that states had about a one month window for holding their elections, from early November to the beginning of December.
What a tiresome cretin.
I’ve always been reluctant to call people wicked or evil (or treasonous). But I’ve been studying Psalms and Isaiah and have concluded I have been far too lenient. There are a lot of people out there who are genuinely wicked and evil, and Hillary is right there in their midst – possibly leading the pack though there are a lot of contenders.
I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back until
they were destroyed. I crushed them so that they could not rise;
they fell beneath my feet.
Speaking of clinton human waste – and obama:
Netflix’s ‘Jeffrey Epstein’ Trailer Shows Trump, Dershowitz, But Not Bill Clinton:
Obamas’ first Netflix release, ‘American Factory,’ won an Oscar. Here’s every other movie and TV show they have in the works:
If only she wasn’t so darned cute!
As once noted in a “Secretaries” skit on The Kids In The Hall:
The cute don’t age well.
I like this relevant portion of Psalm 35:
4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord chase them.
6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the Lord persecute them.
7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall
After watching obama get away with so much lawlessness for 8 years, I have no doubt hillary would have gone on a crime spree the likes of which we can’t even fathom. Imagine being hillary these days. So close to being the historic glass ceiling breaker, all the way down to chardonnay soaked two time loser. It’s probably a good thing she can’t shut up and go away actually, at least for now. She’s a great example of the quintessential corrupt politician, but angrier and even more dishonest.
Oh Wow: Devin Nunes Says That Criminal Referrals Are Coming.
Not Just for the FBI/CIA Coupists.
But for Mueller’s Team of 13 Angry Democrats.
Ace of Spades
David Nunes SAYS. Wake me when it happens.
A criminal referral is just that: a referral. Don’t get excited until you see indictments coming from Durham’s criminal investigation. And they will come.

She is Fauci’s hero.
So much for that creep.
A crooked creep who’s first approved AIDS drug, ATZ, was deadly toxic with horrendress side effects as well as being the most expensive drug ever approved to that time.
Wonder how much stock was owned in that drug company?
Can we encourage this shrew to go ride the subway and lick a door handle?
Or dance on the tracks.
Ha. No self respecting virus would want any thing to do with her.
Viruses are tiny things, not technically even living organisms, and there’s certainly no room in one for such complex things as self-respect. When you’re a virus you’ll infect anything. Even the Wicked Witch of Westchester.
