After reviewing the US Constitution, I did find one instance where a part of the Constitution may be suspended.
Article 1, Section 9, Clause 2 . . .
"Clause 2: The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it."
Our nation is neither in rebellion nor is it being invaded.
In the history of our nation this clause has been used ONLY once; during the Civil War by President Lincoln.
I anxiously await "Arnold's" response to the previously posted questions.
