It's quite sad, the way the Clinton scandals (a number involving Hillary personally) are covered up to the point where even many Conservatives don't know about them.

Where I live, yes. In the US, it's usually two weeks.

Under the current situation, can elections be decided that quickly in all cases?

Any emergency power declaration clause can be, and will be, abused. (Why isn't the US embassy in Jerusalem?) But the supermajority idea makes sense. How about requiring a 75% vote? But I need to ask - if the Founders explicitly required a lame duck session, there presumably was a reason. What was it, and is it still valid?
The original use of Jefferson's phrase on the Court was not by an anti-Christian, but an anti-Catholic. A paranoid Catholic-hater, afraid the Pope was going to control the US or something. He was also a formet KKK member - the KKK used to be against Catholics, not just Blacks, Jews, and Republicans. Of such material are our judicial precedents formed.
I almost flagged you with the other spam, but, in truth, they should have given the anchor's explanation, even if - and I don't blame them - they found it fishy.
According to the anchor, she was getting a signal that time was up, but she didn't want to cut him off, so he got cut off when time ran out. She also seemed to be enjoying his comments, unless it was her reaction to whatever she was getting in her earphone. Was that true? No idea. (That also goes for the actual "news" on CNN.)
I assume you are referring to the immigration from the South? I doubt that statement would apply to the Koreans, Vietnamese, Chinese, Cubans and Jews. In the case of the Jews, they often weren't treated as citizens and in some cases (Romania) were denied citizenship outright, no matter how many generations they live there.
It's not the same - we are talking about refugees in those cases. BTW, the State Department was really good about enforcing immigration law when Jews were trying to escape the Holocaust, even beyond the quota system that then existed- at least one quota was not even filled. In fact, the entire world more or less acted as one to make sure few Jews could escape - both before and during the war.
Yes.
