This may be the ultimate conspiracy theory!I have thought on this theory for months.I had to take my vehicle to the mechanic the other day for service. The Service Manager, Pete, gave me a ride home and on the way he told me his theory about the upcoming election and the next four years of U.S. government.At first I thought it a bit far-fetched. But as I listened to him it began to make sense, scary sense….“I believe that Hillary Clinton will win the election in November,” Pete began. “Then, sometime between November and [Friday, Jan. 20, 2017], Hillary will be indicted. The IRS is now investigating the Clinton Foundation and the whole e-mail thing isn’t over yet.”“Once under indictment she won’t be able to assume the Office of the President in January. Tim Kaine, who will not actually be the Vice President because neither he nor Hillary have been inaugurated, cannot assume the Presidency.”“The Speaker of the House can’t move up to it because there is already a sitting President and Vice President. So President Obama, in an Executive Order citing “emergency situation,” gives himself another four years in office as the only way possible.”Pete believes Obama has been planning this for a while now, knowing he has enough on Hillary to indict her. Had the Attorney General indicted her based on evidence from the FBI this plan wouldn’t have worked because the DNC would have quickly come up with another candidateIf you think about it, it’s not that outrageous. Many people on the left, including the President [surprised?], want Obama to stay another four years. The law prohibits him from being re-elected so the only two ways he can do it is by:1) declaring martial law and suspending the election (which would be a very negative thing for the country), or2) to declare himself still President because the elected candidate cannot assume her duties.The latter makes more sense and is actually more feasible. And since it’s never been done before, it would set a precedent that would be difficult to challenge.Of course, if Trump wins the election none of this is going to happen.But what if Pete is correct? Four more years of Obama and a mostly useless Republican House and Senate would give Obama the time he needs to continue destroying/changing the country to fit his stated goals.I thanked Pete for the ride home – and for messing up my day. Now I’ve got more things to worry about!Pete’s theory and its outcome are far-fetched, but what if….? Well worth pondering.“The sky is falling, the sky is falling”, said Henny Penny.

Since Barack Obama has been in the White House, high ranking military
officers have been removed from their positions at a rate that is
absolutely unprecedented. Things have gotten so bad that a number of
retired generals are publicly speaking out about the ‘purge’ of the
U.S. military that they believe is taking place. As you will see
below, dozens of highly decorated military leaders have been dismissed
from their positions over the past few years. So why is this
happening? What is going on right now is absolutely crazy especially
during a time of peace. Is there a deliberate attempt to reshape the
military and remove those who don’t adhere to the proper ‘viewpoints’
? Does someone out there feel a need to get officers that won’t
cooperate out of the way?
Throughout world history, whatever comes next after a military purge
is never good.
If this continues, what is the U.S. military going to look like in a few years?
Perhaps you are reading this and you think that ‘purge’ is too strong
a word for what is taking place. Well, just consider the following
quotes from some very highly decorated retired officers:
-Retired Army Major General Paul Vallely: The White House protects
their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and
furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and
gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower,and
anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.
-Retired Army Major General Patrick Brady: There is no doubt he
(Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone
who disagrees with him.
-Retired Army Lt. General William G. Jerry Boykin: Over the past three
years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be
relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause.
-Retired Navy Captain Joseph John: I believe there are more than 137
officers who have been forced out or given bad evaluation reports so
they will never make Flag (officer), because of their failure to
comply to certain views.
A Pentagon official who asked to remain nameless because they were not
authorized to speak on the matter said even young officers, down
through the ranks have been told not to talk about Obama or the
politics of the White House. They are purging everyone and if you want
to keep your job just keep your mouth shut. Now this trend appears to
General Vallely’s comment:
Coincidence? Every communist regime on the planet did this as soon as
they gained power.
I am doing my part by sending this email, I hope you will do the same.
Paul (General Paul Vallely)
With so many senior military leaders now removed from service, who
will be their replacements?
Maybe all remaining community organizers will be drafted into
(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — Gov. Jerry Brown signed six stringent gun-control measures Friday that will require people to turn in high-capacity magazines and mandate background checks for ammunition sales, as California Democrats seek to strengthen gun laws that are already among the strictest in the nation.
Brown vetoed five other bills, including requirement to register homemade firearms and report lost or stolen weapons to authorities.
The Democratic governor’s action is consistent with his mixed record on gun control. Some of the enacted bills duplicate provisions of a November ballot measure by Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. Some of the vetoed measures also appear in Newsom’s initiative.
“My goal in signing these bills is to enhance public safety by tightening our existing laws in a responsible and focused manner, while protecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners,” Brown wrote in a one-sentence message to lawmakers.
Gun control measures have long been popular with the Democratic lawmakers who control the California Senate and Assembly. But they stepped up their push this year following the December shooting in San Bernardino by a couple who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group.
The bills angered Republicans and gun-rights advocates who say Democrats are trampling on 2nd Amendment rights, creating new restrictions that won’t cut off the flow of guns to people intent on using them for nefarious purposes.
“On the eve of Independence Day, independence and freedom and liberty in California has been chopped down at the knees and kicked between the legs,” said Sam Paredes, executive director of the advocacy group Gun Owners of California.
Lawsuits challenging the new laws are likely once they take effect next year, Paredes said.
Brown’s action will require people who own magazines that hold more than 10 rounds to give them up. It extends a 1999 law that made it illegal to buy a high-capacity magazine or to bring one into the state but allowed people who already owned them to keep them.
In an attempt to slow gun users from rapidly reloading, the governor signed a bill outlawing new weapons that have a device known as a bullet button. Gun makers developed bullet buttons to get around California’s assault weapons ban, which prohibited new rifles with magazines that can be detached without the aid of tools. A bullet buttons allows a shooter to quickly dislodge the magazine using the tip of a bullet or other small tool.
People will be allowed to keep weapons they already own with bullet buttons, which are often referred to as “California compliant.”
Brown also endorsed a bill making another attempt to regulate ammunition sales after a law passed in 2009 was struck down by a Fresno County judge who said it was too vague. The new law will require ammunition sellers to be licensed and buyers to undergo background checks. Transactions will be recorded.
He also opted to require a background check before a gun can be loaned to someone who isn’t a family member.
“Strong gun laws work. … What we’re doing in California is a better job of keeping guns out of dangerous hands,” said Amanda Wilcox, a spokeswoman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, whose daughter was killed by a shooter using a high-capacity magazine.
The governor vetoed an effort to expand a six-month-old program that allows courts to temporarily restrict gun ownership rights for people suspected of being dangerous and decided against restricting all firearm purchases to one per month, a limitation that already applies to handguns.
Another bill he vetoed would have asked voters to strengthen penalties for stealing a gun, which voters will already be deciding it through Newsom’s initiative. The ballot measure also will ask voters to require reporting of lost and stolen firearms — an idea Brown rejected Friday and has rejected at least twice before.
“I continue to believe that responsible people report the loss or theft of a firearm and irresponsible people do not; it is not likely that this bill would change that,” he wrote in a veto message.
Newsom’s initiative has put a spotlight on the lieutenant governor as he campaigns for governor in 2018. He’s been at loggerheads with Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat who tried unsuccessfully to persuade Newsom to drop the ballot measures in favor of legislative action.
Brown’s vetoes protected Newsom’s initiative from becoming moot. A spokesman for Brown, Evan Westrup, said voters “will have a chance to go even further in November, if they choose.”
