First Sunday Zoom Meeting

  • 10/04/2020
  • 10:30 AM - 12:03 PM
  • Zoom

Stewart Harris, Constitutional Scholar will be speaking on "What Happens if He Won’t Leave?"  The peaceful transfer of presidential power is one of the bedrock principles of our Constitution.  But recent statements by our current president, e.g., that the only way he will lose is through a “rigged” election, or that he should serve more than two presidential terms, have caused some people to question whether, in the event of a defeat, he will peacefully leave the White House.  This presentation will describe the constitutional provisions for presidential succession, from Article II to the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, as well as the role of the military in our constitutional scheme. 

Stewart is the Associate Director, Abraham Lincoln Institute for the Study      of Leadership and Public Policy at Lincoln Memorial University. 

He also created a public radio show, "Your Weekly Constitutional," which is produced at WETS-FM, the NPR affiliate in Johnson City, Tennessee, and syndicated nationally. YWC is underwritten by the Robert H. Smith Center for the Constitution at Montpelier, the historic home of the Father of the Constitution, James Madison. The show is on Facebook and Twitter, and podcasts are available on iTunes and Spotify.

Bring your own coffee and snacks. 

Pease note that this meeting WILL BE RECORDED for later distribution on the Freethinkers United TV Channel on YouTube. If you wish to remain anonymous, please use an alias for your screen name and consider attending without video.
