How Christie is blazing a path
straight down political middle

Daily Record [Parsippany NJ], by Michael Symons

TRENTON — For a man who championed the Republican brand as keynote speaker at its national convention last year, Gov. Chris Christie has been spending a lot of time making nice with Democrats. Most famously, Christie was complimentary of Democratic President Barack Obama’s response to superstorm Sandy just before last year’s election. He then almost as famously ripped House Speaker and fellow Republican John Boehner about playing politics with federal storm aid. Early on, his re-election campaign has consisted of endorsements by two unions and two Democratic mayors, as well as fundraisers in Hollywood and Silicon Valley.

Yes, Christie is certainly Leftist Lite.
(Though using the word "lite" in the same sentence with Christie is a contradiction.)
He is pro-government, pro-nanny state, and pro-Christie (first and foremost)

An adequate VP if a genuine, nonrove nonbush conservative were to head the ticket.

A thoroughly dangerous man if he chose to run as a democrat.

Chris Christie and Rudy Giuliani being considered "moderate" shows how incredibly successful the 2 mainstream parties have been in moving us ever leftward over the past 50 years or so.

christie´s pathetic keynote speech at the GOP Convention where he talked exclusively about himself confirmed that he is just a big fat liberal. Liberals, notably, zippy and his wifey, think of everything in terms of themselves. That´s because liberals rarely advance beyond a mental age of 7 --- the age of reason.

He handed Obama the election with the Sandy flyover. I believe in retaliation for not being picked VP. He will never get my vote for President.

Christie is not sound on Islam. He thinks it is absurd and bigoted for Americans to have any concern whatsoever about Muslim judges in American courts.

As much as anything, he is notorious for his bad manners and rude behavior towards people he doesn´t like. Now the Leftist mainstream media seems to be hyping him. The whole business is very strange.

This is not the man to lead the Republicans out of the political wilderness. That anyone would so much as dream of such a thing is a symptom of the trouble we are in.

"The political middle," of course, is a euphemism for liberal and Leftist values. When Leftists use words, the words mean precisely what they choose them to mean. In Leftspeak, terms like "compromise" and "bipartisan" have meanings not found in the dictionary. The same applies to "moderate" and "the political middle."

Oddly, just about everyone but the Leftists themselves recognizes these alternative meanings perfectly well.

The problem is that the "middle" today is compromising with outright Marxism. "A little leaven spoils the whole lump" comes to mind.

Leftists are happy to get "compromise" from "moderates". Because it still assures their agenda will continue to march on even if little by little. They´re content to take small steps when their control is limited and big leaps when they have the power. What they like about Obama is he is the first outright Marxist as president. And they are determined to push as hard as needed.....whether constitutional or even unlawful. Until we accept this fact the nation is doomed.

For those of you not familiar with Joisey newspapers - - The Record is an ultra-extreme leftist rag - - possibly even to the left of the NY Times.

It makes the old Soviet Pravda and Castro´s Granma seem neutral and honest by comparison.

Just so you know.

What´s not to like about "New Jersey Fats"? Agrees with 98% of the Democrat Governor of New York´s policy positions, thinks having radical Islamist judges in "The Garden State" is "groovy" and enjoys the 100% backing of Uncle Karl, who says he "can´t miss" in 2016.

The funny thing is, all he has to do is see the path "blazed´ by John McCain to understand how this all works.

He´s the darling of the elite media as long as he´s there to scold the conservatives. As soon as he possibly threatens a Democrat for national office, inevitably the headlines and elite media talking points will echo "What happened to the Christie (I, We, All, Everyone, etc.) Loved? Chris Christie has moved to the hard right to the disappointment of many."

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado´s ´Hot Jesus´:

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats seek to reshape midterm

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

Officials are not releasing the name of the 18-year-old victim who lived at the home. Shot with him was Jordan Means, 16, of the 8100 block of

Once the province of activists and stoners, the traditional pot holiday of April 20 has gone mainstream in the first state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana. Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo called the Cannabis Cup at a trade center north of downtown, to 4/20-themed concerts at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater — acts include Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dog — to a massive festival in the shadow of the state capitol where clouds of cannabis smoke are expected to waft at 4:20 p.m. MDT Sunday.

Last night, Chris Hayes face off against Assemblywoman Michele Fiore over the ongoing saga of the Bundy Ranch. Fiore reminds us why we love TV. (Video) Fiore for the win! The Assemblywoman is feisty, unflappable, stays on message, goes at Hayes hard, and comes out looking great. A terrific segment and a good interview by Hayes, amazingly enough. The best part was when she left him flat-footed right at the end after catching him with the slaughter question. Although Hayes salvages the moment for himself with the barbecue crack.

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
