Chuck Grassley, not Pelosi, becomes POTUS if election's cancelled in November 2020

Technically, says Halper, Congress could delay the election for a bit in the case of an emergency, but when the president and vice-president’s terms run out on January 20, 2021, they are out of office, period. And in that case, it seems, the next-in-the-line-of-succession official who is still in office would be empowered to occupy the Oval Office.

If, of course, there’s no general election in November, Trump and Pence aren’t the only elected officials out of a job, so crazy things could happen. While the Speaker of the House is third in the line of presidential succession, Nancy Pelosi is also up for reelection this year and so would face the same scenario as Trump and Pence if the election were to be canceled. The next in the line of succession who does not face voters in November is Chuck Grassley, the Senate’s president pro tempore. But then again, 23 Republican senators are up for reelection this year and would be on the sidelines as well, so we could have a Democratic Senate and perhaps a president pro tempore Pat Leahy (that position traditionally goes to the oldest senator of the majority party).

Not that I'm suggesting "ny mag" is the greatest source.

But facts are facts.

Libs (including a few trolls on GLP) are saying "Pelosi check mated Trump" and/or suggested when the elections are cancelled she'd become POTUS.

But that's not true. The federal politicians either get kicked out when their terms run or they don't. So, if Trump and Pence got booted due to no election, Pelosi would get booted at the same time, as her term would be up too.

You can google "when is Pelosi up for reelection" and it will confirm November 2020.

If California (or another Libtard state) somehow keeps Trump off the ballot then their electoral votes would have to be disqualified because there was no election IN THAT STATE.

Remember the States run their elections not the Feds.

If you don't have two candidates or an opposing candidate there is no election.

Wouldn't California holding elections be enough for Pelosi to stay in office and replace POTUS if ALL states weren't able to vote for president?

so the current president doesn't get a chance for reelection.

Dems don't have any good candidates, maybe this is the next best thing.

Ya know, if the Corona virus comes back just before the election this will suppress voting in the Blue areas (cities, urban).

The Red areas (southern states, rural) will be voting in record numbers.

If I was American, I would refuse to acknowledge anyone in DC as president.

I didn't get to vote, so fuck all of you in DC honestly.

"There’s this to be said for a convention: it permits the kinds of useful departures from a rule that strict laws would make impossible. The crisis of the Second World War was exactly the kind of exception that justified a departure from the term limits convention. President Roosevelt ran for and was elected to a third term in 1940 and then a fourth in 1944. Likewise, in 1940—with the Battle of Britain in full swing—Britain amended the Parliament Act which required a general election every five years and extended Winston Churchill’s government for another five-year term."

During a time of "Crisis," like a Pandemic or war...being elected for more than two terms is possible and has happened.

"Roosevelt ran for and was elected to a third term in 1940, and a forth in 1944."

I call for President Trump to run again in 2024.

Especially after all the crap the democrats and FAKE NEWS put him through...those people stink to high heaven.

Part of the 22nd Amendment. :)

Forget Grassley or drunkard Pelosi.

I think Titor said that the first president after the nuclear war is a farmer. His timeline was all wrong but the main points seem to hit, just later.

Very interesting OP.

If the elections are postponed, and the GOP senators up for election aren't able to take office, it is possible that enough of them come from states with GOP governors which could make appointments.

Unless the escapee from Madame Tusseaux’s wax museum has somehow managed to change the rules, she’s up for re-election every two years so EVERY presidential election would affect her like this if it were put off. There’s no way in hell Pelosi would ever be up for the Presidency that way.

Sorry, but there’s some candle making factories out there that were shorted some wax and should go looking for it in the House Speaker’s office.
