    Only three ways Trump can win this,

    1)Video of Biden getting a blow job from an underage girl while he high-fives Epstein.

    2)Cuban Missile Crisis 2.0, now with added China.

    3)9/11 level terror attack on US soil. Bonus points if it kills large numbers of Congress and the Senate.

    Since all of these are about as likely as me becoming a Super Villain, I think you're pretty safe;)

    if a major war started with N Korea, China, or Iran I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some kind of national war powers emergency provision that he Could legally use to postpone the election

    I don't know enough about US Constitutional law to offer an opinion on that, Jack. But I suspect he could only do that were the situation absolutely dire, when going forward with an election would actually be a clear and present danger to the nation's security.

    In the film, the St Mary's Virus was a bioweapon created by Norsefire itself and used as a False Flag attack to cause panic, and to make senior member of Norsefire extremely rich; they owned stock in the company that manufactured a vaccine. The black operators who carried out the St Mary's attack were themselves killed by Creepy Creedy, head of the Fingermen, and the attack was blamed on Islamic terrorists.

    It's one of my favourites. For years, a buddy of mine and I would watch it on November 5th;) Great performance by Weaving, especially since he can only convey emotion with his voice and body language.

    Probably not, but maybe. No one is capable of having a conversation these days, or being a decent person, or having thr bare minimum amount of empathy.

    If/when Trump wins, there will be rioting in big democrat cities, and right around 100% of the rioters, politicians and media members who support them are all the ones who've been saying "OMG, Trump won't accept the results of the election if he loses".

    I like the first three Purge movies even though they have an obvious political slant to them. They hearken back a bit to the street gang movies of the 70's to early 90's (The Warriors, the Death Wish and Dirty Harry movies, Escape from New York, Vigilante, the Mad Max movies, etc.). Never saw the tv series, though I wanted to check it out.

    The first Purge was fantastic. Then one with Frank DeGrillo was surprisingly better than you'd expect from a horror serial where you go in knowing that you're going to be fed garbage retreads of the theme from a classic original.

    The rest are what you expect: pure trash.
