    Whenever Trump gets anything wrong the MSM and resident leftist claim he is lying so here is Biden's latest lie

    "“Have all the experts, both political parties and academia laying out what it would take to have voting by mail,” he said. “I’d much prefer to have in-person voting, but it depends. It depends on the state of play, but we cannot delay or postpone a constitutionally required November election.”'
    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/apr/7/joe-biden-we-cant-delay-or-postpone-november-elect/

    Ahhh no Joe, the Constitution does not mandate a November vote, it says nothing about voting in November or primary voting.

    All it says is
    Article One
    Section 4
    1: The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.



    It is a statutory matter, only applies to the Congress, and Congress can change.

    2 U.S. Code § 7.Time of election
    The Tuesday next after the 1st Monday in November, in every even numbered year, is established as the day for the election, in each of the States and Territories of the United States, of Representatives and Delegates to the Congress commencing on the 3d day of January next thereafter.


    It is a STATE matter and the state has planary power over how it's electors will be choosen, there doesn't even have to be an election. That date is a statutory date just as the date the Electors will be choosen.

    3 U.S. Code § 1.Time of appointing electors
    The electors of President and Vice President shall be appointed, in each State, on the Tuesday next after the first Monday in November, in every fourth year succeeding every election of a President and Vice President.

    Note it says appointed not elected, the State appoints the electors

    3 U.S. Code § 7.Meeting and vote of electors
    The electors of President and Vice President of each State shall meet and give their votes on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December next following their appointment at such place in each State as the legislature of such State shall direct.

    If I was ambitious I'd try to find something that says a mistake isn't necessarily a lie but, maybe later.

    It's not a lie if you believe it to be true at time you say it. Which applies to everything Biden comes out with these days = 90% jibberish.

    Not applied to Trump is it. How long was he in the Congress and then VP and he doesn't even know the difference between and Constitution and US Code and how elections are set? How many elections has he been through?

    And it's not just Biden, Pelosi thinks she can take over state and local election control

    "Today, Warren is releasing a new plan—shared in advance exclusively with Mother Jones—that calls for a series of provisions in Congress’ next coronavirus recovery package that would protect voters’ ability to safely cast a ballot during the pandemic. The proposals would require states to mail a ballot to every registered voter with a prepaid return envelope, as is standing practice in states like Oregon and Washington; outline $4 billion in federal funding to help states transition to universal vote-by-mail before November (10 times what Congress allocated in its first recovery package); and say states should refrain from removing voters from registration rolls unless they can prove the person has moved or died since it will be very difficult for anyone removed to reregister during the outbreak."
    https://www.motherjones.com/coronavirus-updates/2020/04/elizabeth-warren-coronavirus-voting/

    She has no such authority to make a state use any system of voting, the Constitution specifically grants the power to decide the manner in which elections will be held to the STATES. She can't flush that down the toilet. And no the state does not have to go out looking for voters and confirming each voter as not moved or died. The send out cards regularly and if you don't get one then upon you to call the local registrar's office and clear it up.

    You are kind of wasting you time trying to find Joe’s mistakes when Trump just flat out lies all the time.Haven’ t checked his numbers yet but must be close to 18,000 by now.

    The Election needn't be held (per se) in November.

    The Federal COULD be slightly Postponed, BUT, it has to be held before the next Congress.

    If NO Federal Election is held (including for The House and Senate) Trump still has to leave on Jan. 20, 2021. Regardless.

    There have been Tons of Articles about this.

    I am very surprised that you haven't gotten the memo.

    Patience, he will. It's only a question of time.
    On the hypocrisy side he is against voting by mail despite that he himself votes by mail.

    There has been tons of false statements as I have corrected and as I said Congress can postpone the date, in a limited time frame, it is a statutory matter. And in fact there does not have to be a vote for the electors.

    As I have said here and in other threads. They could delay but not for long. And again there is no constitutional requirement the people elect the electors to choose the President and VP.

    There is nothing that says the election couldn't be expanded by 10 days to relieve congestion at the polls. We can still have a valid election AND have social distancing. Hell, we held an election during the Civil War (1862) we can certainly put on our big boy pants and figure this out ... unless Republicans are afraid of an election ...?

    Lets do this. How about we hold the general election everyday until November, and if Biden can win even just once during those daily votes we call it over and give him the election.............republicans would still not have a worry in the world.

    That's up to your state whether the citizens of the state elect them, they vote on behalf of your state. You never knew that?
    One again repeat after me the STATES elect the President and VP.

    You are a US citizen right?

    As I have said Congress could change the date for the elections the first Tuesday in November after the first Monday which by statute concerns the Congressional election date and when states also elect their electors but it cannot change the date the EC votes the third Wendesday in December. Now there also has to be time allowed for challenges to any contested elections so like you said may 10 days max. What good does that do?
