CNN gleefully mulls prospect of Trump/Pence assassination during inauguration



The following piece was published on the Breitbart website on January 18th. What an extraordinary bit of macabre, on-air theorizing—or is it Wishful Thinking-- as CNN “What-Ifs” the potential political ramifications of assassinating Donald Trump and Mike Pence during the inauguration. Disgraceful.

Does anybody wonder why today’s inauguration is so important?  Ed.


CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power
 
by Warner Todd Huston

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.

So while most of the country is looking to enjoy the day’s events and waiting expectantly to hear what our new president will have to say for his first address as our leader, CNN is wondering what will happen if he is assassinated.

Perhaps CNN is still stuck in anger, the second stage of grief. 


 

Does anybody wonder why today’s inauguration is so important?



The following article was published in the Weekly Standard on January 13th. Were Hillary Clinton to have been inaugurated today rather than Donald Trump, it would have meant 4 more years of the Obama Regime; an additional term during which a self-infatuated, America-hating thug would trample the United States Constitution, create massive unemployment and drive wealth from the nation.

In 1961, Supreme Court Justice Tom Clark wrote: “Nothing can destroy a government more quickly than its failure to observe its own laws, or worse, its disregard of the charter of its own existence.” We’ve witnessed the devastating effects of Justice Clark’s warning for 8 years.

So, does anybody wonder why today’s inauguration is so important!  Ed.

Obama's Shameful Legacy

By Stephen F. Hayes

There was a time, early in Barack Obama’s presidency, when it was considered outrageous to worry out loud that the new president might treat enemies better than allies, run down friends and elevate foes, show solidarity with anti-American leaders, maybe even release dangerous terrorists or sympathize with traitors.  

And here we are.

Obama has accommodated leaders hostile to America, like Vladimir Putin in Russia and Bashar al-Assad in Syria. He strengthened a rogue regime in Iran and boosted despotic leaders in Cuba. At the same time, he chastised and isolated Israel and abandoned friendly governments in places like Afghanistan and Ukraine.  
He's freed from Guantanamo dozens of jihadists and high-ranking al Qaeda terrorists, including some who have promised to kill Americans upon their release, and he's done this even as U.S. men and women in uniform and in the intelligence community fight and die to protect us from the threat that these enemies represent.

When the anti-American leader of Uruguay accepted five "high-risk" Guantanamo detainees and slandered U.S. troops and intelligence officials for having perpetrated a "heinous kidnapping" to capture them, Obama didn't challenge the statement but thanked him for his humanitarian gesture. When Obama sought the return of Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who had abandoned his unit in Afghanistan and had been taken captive by jihadists in Pakistan, he released five senior Taliban operatives, all deemed high-risk for a return to terror. Bergdahl's platoon-mates considered him a traitor; Obama's national security adviser portrayed him as a hero, "an American prisoner of war captured on the battlefield" who had served his country with "honor and distinction." 
Bowe Bergdahl and friend

And on Tuesday, of course, Obama commuted the sentence of Chelsea Manning, who leaked hundreds of thousands of sensitive U.S. intelligence and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks, causing irreparable harm to U.S. interests. The damage wasn't theoretical. According to an Associated Press article from the prosecution of Manning, the U.S. government argued in court, "al Qaeda leaders reveled in WikiLeaks' publication of reams of classified U.S. documents" and "al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden asked for and received from an associate the Afghanistan battlefield reports that WikiLeaks published."

Obama defenders would no doubt argue that such an analysis of Obama's presidency leaves out important context and greatly simplifies complicated matters. That's true. But it's also true that Obama did all of this. And that's the real outrage.

With two days left, what more will he do?

Report: Clinton Foundation Laying Off Workers – Shutting Down Global Initiative Amid Ongoing Investigations



This article appeared on the Gateway Pundit website on January 15th.  Two days earlier, The Coach’s Team discussed the dramatic income nosedive experienced by the Clinton Foundation during Hillary’s failed run for the White House. Could it be that former patrons of the Clinton slush fund have decided to enrich some other charitable organization, given Mrs. Clinton’s sudden inability to provide political favors in return?  Ed.

By Joe Hoft 

The Clinton Foundation is shutting down the Global Clinton Initiative per papers filed with the Department of Labor this past week. It was reported by the Clinton Foundation that some 22 employees would be laid off in the coming months at the Clinton Global Initiative:

Filed as mandated by the Department of Labor’s Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN notice, on January 12, the Clinton Foundation’s Veronika Shiroka advised the DOL that as part of a “Plant Layoff” it would layoff 22 workers on April 15, with reason for the dislocation stated as “Discontinuation of the Clinton Global Initiative.” The layoffs are part of the Clinton plan put in motion ahead of the presidential election, to offset a storm of criticism regarding pay-to-play allegations during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.  

A document was posted on the New York state government website this past week.

Another report this weekend states that the Clinton Foundation is still under investigation by the FBI for money laundering:

The money laundering allegations being probed by the FBI have been buoyed by recent revelations and evidence discovered by the NYPD from a laptop confiscated from Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin’s Manhattan residence. According to NYPD, several of the emails recovered on the hard drive disclosed sensitive financial details of the Clintons and their charity. That evidence is now in the hands of the FBI too, whose New York field office has opened a parallel Clinton Foundation investigation.

Overall it looks like the Clinton’s are trying to hide their tracks while investigations are ongoing.  This is certainly not the first time they tried to obstruct justice.
