Feds investigating Christie´s
use of Sandy relief funds

CNN, by Chris Frates

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 1/13/2014 8:47:44 AM

Washington - Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. The news couldn´t come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country´s busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Christie´s signature achievement regarding Sandy was to help Obama get re-elected. Despite promises of no red tape by Obama and Christie, the recovery at the shore is no different than it was in New Orleans after Katrina. Red tape abounds and people are still hurting.

Christie is learning the hard way that karma´s a *itch.

The MSN is out to get Christie and just like McCain they will try to bring him down.
I am now Christie fan but look forward to his bare knuckles defense and victory over the clowns of the Fourth Estate.

I personally felt Christie lost any chance he´d ever have for higher office when he walked hand and hand with Obama after hurricane Sandy. I was surprised to hear Rush say it last week. What a lot of politicians don´t get is that those who made them can also break them. Whatever Obama or his people do, they scare the pants off whomever is running against them. Romney had a greasy, sick look about him during that last debate. Same look Christie had during his stroll with O. Fact is, tho, Christie never had a chance at president. Are you listening, Rove?

I don´t know what to make of this. Is this an attempt to smear Chris Christie or does he have to own up to misdoings.

I do know this. Whoever runs for the Republican ticket in 2016 is going to have to be clean, articulate, and battle ready. That person will have to convey that they are humbled by the position and will serve honestly and faithfully for the American citizens.

Christie pretty much "stayed home" when it was time to help elect Steve Lonegan as our new Republican Senator. Other than tepid endorsement and minimal participation in helping Lonegan win, Christie played games. That will not be forgotten, and I remind the RNC of their similar lack of support every time I get one of their mailings.

If Christie becomes the (R) nominee, I will vote for him. But I am almost thankful that he is thrown into the Bridge and Sandy messes NOW, instead of later. Let´s see how he handles himself, and how he deals with his "friends" in the media and across the aisle. This is an excellent "Snap out of it!" moment for our Governor.

The Saudi princes are right: RINO horns are an aphrodisiac, and the news media are aroused over the dust produced from Christie´s horns.

Christie´s fall from media grace will hopefully permit real Republicans to step forward with pro-growth, pro-individual and limited government policies. The media loved Christie because, like McCain, he is always ready to undermine fellow Republicans while making few if any jabs on Obama´s policies. The media will soon find other RINOs to put on a pedestal before pushing it,out from under them.

To answer #9, I´m staying home if (yet another) RINO is propped up in front of us. I haven´t missed an election in a very long time, but it has to stop.

When the Dems are in control, they try to destroy us, when a Repub gets in (lately) they hold the line until a Dem can get back in and continue the wrecking ball policies that ensure the republics demise and enrich the statist politburo...

#9, it´s different with Chris Christie. For those who stayed home and refused to vote the the eminently decent man, Mitt Romney, shame on you. But Chris Christie is not, IMO, a decent man. To vote for him would be to give one´s imprimatur to an obnoxious, hyprocritical, self-centered bully; to a man whose only real concern is himself; to a man who, despite his US Attorney credentials, does not care about the law. To me, it is not that "he is not conservative enough;" it´s that he is a deeply flawed and repugnant man. Assuming that is my sincere belief (and it is), do you really think I should cast my ballot for him?

#9 said nothing to indicate support of Christie, so forget the "RINO" ugliness. #9 asked a question that many of us discuss. And, much to my dismay, some of you have said, yes, you would stay home.

I have voted for many candidates over my lifetime who were not my first, 10th or 50th choice, but the alternative on the Dem ballot was not a possiblity for me. Of course, that´s what you do when you don´t vote. The guy on the other side gets a bye.

Now they are coming out as being ´investigative" reporters and implying he is doing the citizens of Jersey dirty with !Federal Taxpayer! funds...he should have kept the extra weight...he will need it to deflect all the arrows from Hillary´s Flying Monkeys and Hussein´s reconstituted former ACORN soldiers.

It is certain that funds were misused. i.e. misused right into political pockets.

Any time billions of public $$ are routed into a state that will happen. Some places are regarded as better, some as worse. NJ is widely regarded as worser.

The laws and regulations are so complex you cannot be innocent, you can only intend to be.

I will say it again... Conservatives always vote, they don´t stay home. Saying they do, is just rhetoric and there is no proof in repeating that time and time again.

If that makes you feel better for always nominating poor moderate candidates then we are all doomed. Dole, McCain and Romney. I voted for them all and they all lost. Who´s up next... Christie or possibly McAmnesty again?

No, The Obamacare Debate
Isn’t Over
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/7/2014 7:03:29 AM     Post Reply
Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

Obamacare turns four this Sunday, and it´s never looked worse. For months, the news has not been kind. A broken promise, a broken website. Lost plans, lost doctors. Rising prices, rising frustration. Shrinking paychecks, a shrinking workforce. Unsecure data, insecure Democrats. The few Democrats willing to talk about Obamacare publicly struggle to defend the law on merits. So they´ve resorted to one last defense. They insist Republicans don´t have any ideas. Or as DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz phrased it on CNN´s Crossfire a couple months ago, "What is the Republican solution? … What is the solution to ensuring that everybody in

Public-sector unions took a big hit in Illinois Tuesday evening as a gubernatorial candidate they have poured millions of dollars into defeating seized victory in the state’s Republican primary. And now, in one of the few governor’s races Republicans see as a pickup opportunity this year, private-equity millionaire Bruce Rauner is poised to give Illinois governor Pat Quinn a run for his money and has a real shot at becoming the state’s first Republican governor in over a decade. Rauner set unions on edge during the primary campaign, criticizing their leaders and pledging to reform the state’s bankrupt pension system.

A Special Prosecutor for the IRS

Posted By: garnet- 3/20/2014 8:21:06 AM     Post Reply
The House Oversight Committee´s investigation of the IRS is at an inflection point. The president´s congressional supporters realize that the administration´s version of the agency´s targeting of conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status—such as blaming local officials in the Cincinnati office or claiming that liberal groups were victimized along with conservative groups—is nonsense. Instead of debating the substance, they have resorted to procedural antics and misleading rhetoric. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy on the investigation—which included 38 daylong interviews of IRS and Treasury employees ranging from line employees in Cincinnati to the IRS commissioner to the chief

Is anybody looking dumber than Bill de Blasio right about now? Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave him a 45 percent public-approval rating, down from 53 percent in January. This is consistent with earlier surveys, and it is astonishingly low for a new mayor. But de Blasio has been stepping in cow pies since he took his hand off the Bible on Inauguration Day. The consequences have ranged from minor embarrassments to the humiliating drubbing he’s now taking from Gov. Cuomo on education reform.

In early February this year, I wrote a column for The Hill in which I tried to talk Democrats off the cliff. I warned them against having such a gloomy outlook for November. To tell you the truth, though, when I saw the result from the Florida special election last Tuesday, I asked myself where my straight razor was because I thought I might need it. But before we succumb to 1994 and 2010 syndrome, I’d like to say that a lot of the things that I said in the February column remain true. The fundamental consideration is this: if

Next Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments concerning constitutional challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate brought by Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties. (snip) Neither company objects to birth control, per se. Indeed, both provide coverage to their employees for most types of contraception. Yet civilization as we know it will collapse if the justices rule in their favor, according to the increasingly shrill prognostications of panicky liberals.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."
