This man is an idiot and a useless tool!
CNN apparently as Obama’s mouthpiece and tool has still not given up their attacks and speculations on how to get Trump out of office. Just F’n give it up. Advertisers and sponsors need to consider carefully if these people represent their own values and way of doing business.
According to the following CNN ol’ Blitzdog has decided to raise another method for ditching the duly elected president-elect Trump.

As the nation prepares for the peaceful transfer of power on Inauguration Day, CNN is dreaming up scenarios whereby the Obama administration can keep power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were blown up as they prepared to take to oath of office.
On the Wednesday, January 18 broadcast of CNN’s The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer aired a segment with a chyron featuring the headline “Developing Now.” During that “developing” segment, Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd discussed what would happen if the unthinkable occurred on January 20.
Blitzer introduced the segment, saying, “What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?” and from there, CNN contributor Brian Todd took over to outline the line of succession if an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence.
The upshot was that in the case of both heads of state being killed, the Secretary of State would take over. Currently that man is Secretary of State John Kerry, But in case some objected because his office would also end as of noon on Inauguration Day, then it would be the Speaker of the House — Republican Paul Ryan — or even Obama’s Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon.
The report also noted that the designated survivor appointed by the Obama administration could also become president in the case of a disaster. So, in CNN’s analysis, most of the people who would take over in the worst-case scenario would keep the Obama administration in power, at least indirectly.

I am no lawyer, thank goodness, but it took me less than two minutes to find the following which negates his presumption of succession. If the pundit mouthpiece Blitzer had done any homework research at all before going on this segment, he might have been surprised to find out the facts! Maybe he should have asked the lawyers at CNN for an opinion. Not that it is not a fascinating topic but the timing suggests this group of arses have still NOT given up their pursuit of all things chaotic to assist their “god idol” Obama.
On July 18, 1947, President Harry Truman signed the Presidential Succession Act. The original act of 1792 had placed the Senate president pro tempore and Speaker of the House in the line of succession, but in 1886 Congress had removed them. The 1947 law reinserted those officials, but placed the Speaker ahead of the president pro tempore.
Unless 3 U.S. Code § 19 – “Vacancy in offices of both President and Vice President; officers eligible to act” has been rescinded or made null in some way here is what happens:
(1) If, by reason of death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify, there is neither a President nor Vice President to discharge the powers and duties of the office of President, then the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall, upon his resignation as Speaker and as Representative in Congress, act as President.
(2) The same rule shall apply in the case of the death, resignation, removal from office, or inability of an individual acting as President under this subsection.
(1) If, by reason of death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify, there is no President pro tempore to act as President under subsection (b) of this section, then the officer of the United States who is highest on the following list, and who is not under disability to discharge the powers and duties of the office of President shall act as President: Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, Attorney General, Secretary of the Interior, Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of Commerce, Secretary of Labor, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Secretary of Transportation, Secretary of Energy, Secretary of Education, Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Secretary of Homeland Security.
CNN your lack of relevance is boring and redundant. We already know you cannot be trusted to present news in any way other than “fake” or salacious in order to be read or heard. Even rag journalists sometimes get a sentence or two right! You lost all creditablity years ago but thank goodness for those “fake” news online off-mainstream sites that ACTUALLY check their facts. Those who have not been taught civics or how to think for themselves might believe your words as truth. But we who make up the non-zombified citizens know different.
By the way, I am thinking at this point, given all that has happened recently, the country would be thrown into a massive civil war, you fools, if such a thing happened so why do you even continue to stir the sludge.
Simply Put — Most citizens who have been watching the mind-numbing childish tantrums have had their blinders removed in the last six months as to the horror of allowing ANY Democrat access to the most powerful seat in the US for the next few years.
You guys make me sick. Your network and other mainstream zombies make me ashamed that you are representatives who are shielded under the First Amendment for the purpose of fair, unbiased reporting commissioned by the constitution to protect citizens of these United States.
