Chris Christie reportedly in running
to be next attorney general

New York Post, by Bob Fredericks

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/8/2018 1:07:18 PM

Team Trump is considering Chris Christie to replace fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions — and the former New Jersey governor was at the White House on Thursday morning, according to multiple reports. President Trump canned Sessions on Wednesday after spending months pillorying him for recusing himself from the Justice Department’s probe of Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the president’s campaign. Christie was axed as the head of Trump’s transition team, reportedly at the behest of Jared Kushner, whose father, Charles, spent time in a federal pen after he was prosecuted on tax evasion

Comments:
I don´t care which people Jared Kushner has a personal dislike for. When he is elected president, he can make those choices.

Oh crud! The Fat Boy from Jersey? Gimme a break!
Cristie was suckered into supporting Trump and then got kicked to the curb. We don´t need an AG who is such a complete and consummate sucker.

BTW, the Prez has a lot of good points, but he has a weakness: He has terrible judgement in choosing people for cabinet posts and other Executive Branch offices. Case in point: Jeff Sessions. Not only was Sessions a terrible Attorney General; taking him out of the Senate resulted in the loss of a seat after the Alabama GOP ran Weirdo Judge Roy Moore.

I’m sure the President does make his own choices. He doesn’t seem to be a person who is led around by others.

As for Christie, yesterday’s too much news. Too much baggage of his own.

Christie would be a true bull dog, and knows how to get that department moving in the wake of the previous administration scandals.

Also, I don´t buy this notion Jeff Sessions wasn´t good. Sure, he recused himself on the Special Counsel investigation, but that also freed him up to work on all of the other things that department was doing, like going after MS-13, and other things.

His stance on marijuana sentencing is a bit out of step with how the country is moving on this topic.

The next Ag should have a ´bull dog attitude´,

I gotta side with Jared here. Christie is swamp slime, and he tried to stack the deck once already on Trump, is Trump really going to be that naive to try again? Christie caved to the unions in NJ so fast and would not let thousands of volunteers from other states in to help his residents clean up after Sandy. Chris Christie is another swamp rat, and there are still too many in DC. NO to Christie for anything in a Trump administration.

Florida’s DeSantis, Georgia’s Kemp look certain to

Two southern Republican gubernatorial candidates are ready to move into their governor mansions after appearing to have pulled off victories in their races but their never-say-die Democratic opponents are refusing to give up – though the writing is on the wall. In Florida, the contest for governor between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum appeared all but over Thursday, with a machine recount showing DeSantis with a large enough advantage over Gillum to avoid a hand recount in that race. The latest numbers posted online by the state of Florida show DeSantis with more than 33,683 votes than Gillum.

Dartmouth Lawsuit Says School

Seven current and former Dartmouth College students filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Ivy League school, alleging it ignored an “animal house” atmosphere created by three professors in the school’s department of psychology and brain sciences. The lawsuit, which seeks $70 million in damages, claims the professors “leered at, groped, sexted, intoxicated and raped female students.” It alleges the professors conducted meetings at bars, invited students to late-night hot tub parties in their homes and invited undergraduate students to use cocaine during class.

The installation of Matthew Whitaker as the acting attorney general has the recusal pundits barking like shelter dogs in the presence of a trespassing squirrel. In case you’re wondering how the recusal rules work, it’s simply a matter of whether it helps or hurts Trump. Don’t believe me? See if you can detect a pattern. Since Whitaker might rein in the special counsel, he must be recused, they argue. Similarly, when it appeared former attorney general Jeff Sessions might help Trump, he acceded to demands he recuse himself. But Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

Obama-appointed federal judges have brazenly rewritten election statutes to favor Democrats challenging the outcomes of races in Florida and Georgia. In both states, however, the apparent losers haven’t benefited from arbitrary changes these partisan jurists made in the laws by which election officials are legally bound. Thursday, for example, an Obama appointee changed the rules governing how mail-in ballots with signature mismatches must be handled in Florida — just hours before the legally-mandated recount deadline. In Georgia, two Obama appointees changed the rules regarding how to count incomplete absentee ballots, provisional ballots,

British politics and markets are in chaos because Prime Minister Theresa May can’t sell her long-awaited Brexit plan — and no one knows what comes next. After British voters narrowly approved a withdrawal from the European Union in 2016, we felt the United Kingdom would be better off — able to make its own decisions on trade and immigration and free from lunatic EU regulations. But little of that is in the deal May unveiled Wednesday night. It leaves the UK within the EU’s economic orbit, subject to many of the bloc’s existing regulations and tariffs,

The deadliest and most destructive of the two wildfires is the Camp Fire in Northern California´s Butte County, which has killed at least 63 people.

About 1,200 auditors sharpened their pencils and pored over the Pentagon´s accounting books and were able to identify discrepancies that will likely take years to resolve, Reuters reported. The undertaking was massive and an early goal for the Trump administration. These auditors looked into spending on military personnel and weapons systems, the report said. Patrick Shanahan, the deputy secretary of defense, said "the fact that we did the audit is substantial," and said the agency "never expected to pass." A Pentagon spokesman clarified that an audit is not a ‘pass-fail’ process

The good thing about screwing up is that you can learn from your mistakes and do better next time. That, of course, assumes you are not a Republican Party official, because the GOP Establishment seems largely incapable of learning from its mistakes. We should try again anyway. We won some races, but we lost a lot more. Losing has one advantage over winning – pain is a better teacher than joy. After all, winning generally teaches you the wrong lessons. It makes you complacent. Look at Texas. The governor did worse than expected; Ted Cruz had a close call, and down ballot

President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron have a unique and often strained relationship. They alternate between clashing with and fawning over one another, because even though they are quite different people, they seek similar goals: the greatness of their countries. The age difference and generational dynamic explain some of the ups and downs of this relationship, as do the different political cultures of the two countries. But there is more to it than that. There is the history of each country and our relationship across history; there is the current state of world affairs

President Trump has not received adequately grateful recognition for withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and effectively scuttling the Clean Power Plan. These measures, which reinforced each other and were an outright assault on American capitalism and economic growth, were, with the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the nuclear giveaway to Iran, the core of Barack Obama’s effort to be a transformative president. The whole basis of the Clean Power Plan and the Paris climate accord was false from the beginning, yet the premise on which they were based attained a tremendous level of momentum and effectively bulldozed opposition

The Obamas’ lives have changed drastically since they left the White House in January 2017, but there is one aspect that has remained stubbornly constant: the lack of anonymity. In a sit-down interview with PEOPLE, former First Lady Michelle Obama discusses her new memoir, Becoming, and what life is now like outside the confines of the 9-bedroom house in Washington, D.C., she shares with her husband, former President Barack Obama, 57, and their younger daughter Sasha, 17. Their eldest daughter Malia, 20, is currently attending Harvard University. “We don’t have the anonymity that allows you to be in the world

CHICAGO — To read the worshipful press coverage you’d never know that, for Democrats, the unthinkable has happened: Michelle Obama has revealed herself as just another guru for sale. On Tuesday night, the former first lady kicked off her 10-city North American book tour, which more closely resembled a cult-of-personality-propaganda-rally, at the United Center in Chicago. (Dates have been added in London, where scalped tickets are going for over $90,000 each, and Paris.) A sliver of the 20,000 seats available for the Chicago event were priced at $29.50, and those sold out within five minutes of going on sale in September.
