Is there a clause in the US constitution that allows for the extension of the two-term limit usually imposed on presidents?

With recent reports that both Clinton and Trump are unhealthy and perhaps "unfit" to fulfil the demanding role of POTUS, I wonder if there is some type of effort behind the scenes by TPTB to acknowledge that both candidates are sinking ships, extend Obama's reign and give them space to groom a new subject that they can sell to the world.

Even as an outsider (I'm Australian), I still get the feeling that there is something very strange and mysterious about this whole thing that does not feel quite right. I can't quite put my finger on it. I don't need to list the various issues associated with each of the presidential candidates as there are plenty of threads outlining concerning information about each.

I believe it will be.

IMHO.

I took a wager bout a month ago online for OBAMA to reign on and Baltimore Ravens to appear at the superbowl next year @ 31 odds

The emperor and chief has no legal recourse to stay, unless of course, there is such a thing as an uprising among the states, or half the country were to suddenly explode, or a foreign country were to suddenly invade.

However, who knows what that man has up his sleeves..

Time will tell.

I think 22nd Amendment is clearly saying that he cannot.




Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

Section 2. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several states within seven years from the date of its submission to the states by the Congress.

The only thing I can imagine worse than the two idiots we have running for President is more Obama. No, he can't stay beyond his term and frankly, if he tried, he would be forcibly removed.

And whether you know it or not, you would be a tool of the NWO. You would begin the revolution, a civil war that would usher in the New World Order.

If there is a revolution it must be a peaceful one. Governments have a contingency plan for every situation, the only thing a government doesn't know how to deal with is peace.

You dont have to say your an outsider. :lots of people here in the States feel the same. Something is up. Something big. As a precaution I stayed for a few days in my "bug out location" just as a test. I hope I never have to use it.

both have been cleared fit.


I still get the feeling that there is something very strange and mysterious about this whole thing that does not feel quite right. I can't quite put my finger on it.

republicans have been attacking the democratic runner for an age with lies, or as they call them loosely 'conspiracies', they destroyed john kerry with swift boat lies, tried with obama's birth and, now celebrate benghazi as the greatest moment in american history while trying to pin it on the already cleared clinton, keep saying emails even though nothing is in them, and i think the only illness they havent labelled clinton with is prostate cancer, yet.

this was a conspiracy site now, more of a far right hang out, hence the bullsh!t posted hourly by the same people.



I wonder if there is some type of effort behind the scenes by TPTB to acknowledge that both candidates are sinking ships, extend Obama's reign

logically and legally no, but it would be golden to see these nazi types have to put up with a black president longer.

I don't think the OP was actually talking about an election. The president can most definitely stay in office under E.O. 13603...... Here is an article. hubpages.com...

No, he won't. 22nd amendment forbids it.

Bush I didn't.

Clinton didn't.

Bush II didn't.

Obama won't.

We're about the same age, he's two years older than I am, but he looks a decade older.

The only way he could possibly stay would be to attempt, notice I said attempt, to declare some form of martial law...which would go over like a lead balloon.

No. In January of next year, a new President will be sworn in, and Obama will return to Chicago, or where ever it is he decides to go.

Someone asks this at the end of a President's term. Everyone thought GW was going to stay.

No he cannot. No there is no conspiracy or secret goings on to keep him in power.

The elections will be held and he will step down so the new president can take over.

Care to show exactly where in that EO that is stated?

Unless......


Here is an article. hubpages.com...


Oh dear, did you actually read that "article"?

obviously not, otherwise you would have seen obvious lies like


Obama has signed more executive orders than any other American president in history.


Let us see....

Theodore Roosevelt 1,081 7.47 144.7 September 14, 1901 – March 4, 1909

John F. Kennedy 214 10914 - 11127 2.84 75.4 January 20, 1961 – November 22, 1963
Lyndon B. Johnson 325 11128 - 11451 5.16 62.9 November 22, 1963 – January 20, 1969
Richard Nixon 346 11452 - 11797 5.56 62.3 January 20, 1969 – August 9, 1974
Gerald R. Ford 169 11798 - 11966 2.45 69.1 August 9, 1974 – January 20, 1977
Jimmy Carter 320 11967 - 12286 4 80.0 January 20, 1977 – January 20, 1981
Ronald Reagan 381 12287 - 12667 8 47.6 January 20, 1981 – January 20, 1989
George H. W. Bush 166 12668 - 12833 4 41.5 January 20, 1989 – January 20, 1993
William J. Clinton 364 12834 - 13197 8 45.5 January 20, 1993 – January 20, 2001
George W. Bush 291 13198 - 13488 8 36.4 January 20, 2001 – January 20, 2009
Barack Obama 235 13489 - 13723... 7.5 31.3 January 20, 2009 -

As we see, that claim is just a lie.

You really should not believe everything you read on the internet!

oh FFS - not this crap again - it gets trotted out EVERY election cycle - i suspect by the same idiots

i has an urge to ` jump the gun ` and not even wait for the election - i shall just go ahead and hedge my bets with 2 awesome threads :

1 - will trump suspend the election and assume dictatorial powers - declaring marshall law

2 - will clinton suspend the election and assume dictatorial powers - declaring marshall law

note i spelt it marshall - not martial to pander to idiots

how many stars and flags do y`all think i will get ?

Ever heard the saying: better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt?

If not, perhaps it will serve you well some time in the future?

There are no loop holes in the 22nd Amendment. He will have to leave, or suspend the US Constitution.
After FDR, Eisenhower, IIRC, asked for the 22nd. Amendment so that could not happen again.
As far as E.O. 13603, (text here) it's a funding order declaring who is in charge of whom in the event of an emergency, and there is no mention of the Office of the President that conflicts with the 22nd.

Just keeping the facts straight.

This happens at the end of any 8 year President when the people that feel that specific President was the AntiChrist.

That sentiment seems higher with Obama but paranoid people, not saying OP, are gonna be paranoid.
