CNN are not the press - they are a fake news outlet. It would be best to keep them at arms length now that they are also playing out assassination and terrorist fantasies.


Sorry mate but they are Press, regardless of whether you agree with them or not. To start denying press access because you don't like the way they speak about Trump is the very beginnings of a classic dictatorship. A dictatorship that a large section of Americans seem to be throwing their support towards.


Sorry mate, but not all press get access. CNN have no divine right to be on the roster.
Now they are fake news as opposed to a real news outlet, they can't complain about being relegated.

People fail to understand that in the last 8 years America has changed a lot, sadly is not for the better, is a seed of dissent growing in our nation of laws to ignore the same laws that were enacted to protect all Americans.

This seed is growing, entities like CNN has been taken over by a very powerful group that wants to destroy Americas unity that already has been eroded in the last 8 years.

The desperation is obvious, the way they are playing with the news you can tell that they are not longer run as a news outlet. That is why I call it an entity, CNN has lost any resemblance of Media is now a an outlet promoting anarchy, violence and the death of a presidential candidate elected by the American people.

This is a dangerous precedent and people have not clue how bad is becoming.

A news media publicly advocating with their veiled news the death of an America president, this is just incredible.

There are even people on this website advocating for a coup and the end of the Republic,I hope you still have a country in 48 hours time.Now that Soros isnt going to see the world in his image I believe they are going for the Samson option.

nothing like putting a target on Trumps back. I think CNN should be charged with Treason against the American people if something happens to Trump before that time. They should lose their ability to broadcast news for doing this..

I saw a poll this morning that even 20 per cent of Republicans believe the MSM bs about Russians etc


And lots of Republicans voted for Ted Cruz and John Kasich in the primaries too.

And the temperature is different in some cities today.

In a nation of laws like the US it will be very difficult to create anarchy and chaos to span all the states, it will be a few that had grown without any knowledge of history and how the American nation works, they have forgotten what a Republic represent and that is why is a few that are against it.

In a Republic the states will take care of themselves and their citizens very well, if a coup will arise.

I am sure that it will no get the desirable support from all the states and will die sooner that it will get to take hold.

They're only called "fake news" by Trump supporters after Trump had another meltdown and couldn't handle criticism being thrown at him. So instead of dealing with the accusations, he just cried "FAKE NEWS" and you all toed the line like good little lackies.

That is for sure, Treason is the right charge, specially when it would not be only the death of a president alone, but also all the innocent civilians that have nothing to do with such a treasonous call to death that will be in the path of the target.

the chances are better that disaster will strike CNN this year, than the Inauguration tomorrow.

Everyone has a plan till they get punched in the mouth- Mike Tyson.

If push came to shove I believe your local and state authorities would resist and restore order.Im thinking of the TV series Jericho though one rogue General can make a hell of a mess.

Still doesn't change the inconvenient (for you) truth that CNN have no divine right to be included, and crying about dictatorships sounds like the type of triggered hysteria you seem to be trying so hard to make out has not effected you.

CNN went ahead and signed their own death warrant. They're howling like wolves with teeth full-bared this morning. No trying to hide it at all. Being outright ugly and small. For they know that tomorrow things change.

I'm ashamed enough to say that my background in MSM news was with CBS...I can't imagine having to say out loud or on an application that I had worked for CNN. I actually physically shuddered a little at the thought.

Of course it was a dastardly & psychologically crafted ploy. Crafted by experts. Probably by a PsyOp specialist. That they had to come up with an "all-killed" scenario to plant the suggestion is a giveaway. Make it sound as if the far far left could somehow keep Obama and trigger the easily confused.

I hate you with a passion CNN. The charge is treason. The sentence is death.

Trump is our president now, to start questioning that is not good, we are showing weakness in the world. We are on our way to a collapse of society which would be something that people who want to get control of the whole world would love. I am not talking about Russia either, the biggest threat are the group of people that run our world monetary system, they want control over everyone. Some refer to this as the NWO, it might be the same, I just know there is a very influential group that wants us over a barrel, that wants to punish us if we do not comply.

That's a fair point. But while valid, it does not over-ride what I said, because I am talking about appointing a POTUS, not an acting POTUS. The "designated survivor" is not guaranteed to remain in that position for the full term.

Some might think that if the POTUS- and VP-elect both die before being sworn in, then Obama's choice of "designated survivor" becomes POTUS and that's the end of it. This is patently untrue. The key point of my post was that there are very specific laws that determine these matters of who will be POTUS (and not just an acting POTUS) and they have been in place for decades.

There is nothing new about a sitting POTUS appointing "designated survivors" and it has been common practice for decades -- and this is wise and prudent. However, while Obama's designated choice would take office as acting POTUS in the unlikely event of a wipe-out of all other possible successors (via a nuke or whatever), the over-riding law in choosing a new "permanent" POTUS is covered by the COTUS and subsequent to it, the Presidential Succession Act of 1947.

In short, in spite of whoever Obama might choose as a "designated survivor" to be acting POTUS, this is purely a saving measure, to ensure that the USA has a POTUS. Ultimately, it's Congress who have the power to choose the next POTUS in these circumstances. If they want to choose another (qualified) person by the standards defined in the COTUS, that is their legal right.

I also made the point that after noon on Jan 20th 2017, Obama has no right to appoint anyone as he will no longer be POTUS, just in case anyone thought he remained POTUS until Trump was sworn in. No, Trump shall assume the office of President at noon tomorrow. And he assumes that office regardless of whether he swears the oath by noon or not. Amendment xx of the COTUS is clear on on this. However, he cannot take on the executive tasks of POTUS until he has sworn the oath of office. A fine distinction but legally, an important one.

Amendment XX section 1 says:

Section 1.

The terms of the President and the Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January, of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin.
(Bolding mine.)

This is absolutely clear. The terms for the POTUS and VP begin at noon on Jan 20. It does not say "after they have sworn their oaths of office." So, even if Trump or Pence are not able to swear their oaths prior to noon on that date, they still "begin... their terms" at noon. The COTUS in Article II, section 1 says:

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
(Bolding mine.)

In other words, Trump (if living, which I sincerely hope he will be as I abhor political assassination, and also I wish death on no-one) will become POTUS at 12 noon tomorrow, no matter what happens. But he cannot carry out any executive duties of that office until he swears that oath.

The oath binds him to carry out his duties and gives him the right to do so, but he is President of the United States from noon on Jan 20, regardless! The Constitution states this as plain as day.

What does this mean? It means that the presidential succession in the USA is fully determined by law -- as it should be. It also means that even if something happens that prevents POTUS-elect Trump from swearing his oath of office but he is alive, he will still be POTUS from 12 noon on Jan 20, 2017. Being POTUS does not require the POTUS elect to swear the oath, but he (or she) must swear that oath in order to perform any executive function.

And, if the POTUS-elect is not alive, then Obama's choice is subject to change by Congress.

That's the law.

Actually, as long as we don't take Americas side we'll be good with China, we have a good relationship with them at the moment.

Indonesia can't get it's sh*t together enough to fix their own failing country, so nothing to worry about there.

Im also Aussie btw.
