Chris Christie favorability remains
high despite ‘Bridgegate’

Washington Times, by Tom Howell, Jr.

New Jersey voters are giving Gov. Chris Christie the benefit of the doubt as he fights for his political life over a traffic-jam scandal, according to new polling that says more residents see him as a leader than as a bully who takes swipes at political foes. Mr. Christie’s favorability rating still tops 50 percent, and even Democratic voters don’t think the Republican governor was involved in closing off toll lanes to the George Washington Bridge last September, according to a new survey released Wednesday by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. Nine out of 10 New Jersey voters say they’ve

This whole story has my BS meter banging. Nobody in the Rep party had anything to gain from this, small Town Mayor and such.

Headlines last week, U.S. Attorney to investigate. Now dead silence. If there are no damming Rep fingerprints on this, must be Dem fingerprints. Would little old Hillary Cheat ??

"But the same poll said Hillary Clinton’s lead over Mr. Christie in a theoretical 2016 matchup for the White House has widened to 13 percentage points, up from three points a month ago."

I tend to believe the man. He has not been known as a liar before like Hillary and Barry. Those two don´t know the truth yet the MSM give them the benefit of the doubt all the time. Until it is proven that he is lying, I believe him. This was so out of character.

When it comes to honoring and maintaining his most prized possessions, the Reverend’s three children need a lesson in brotherly (and sisterly) love. In his famous “I Have A Dream” speech, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. thundered from the podium on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963: “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.” Too bad the two sons and surviving daughter of Dr. King and Coretta

Red Hot Chili Peppers Admit

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been in hot water this week after careful analysis of the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show footage revealed that the band’s instruments weren’t plugged in to anything. Flea, the Peppers’ zany bassist, took to the band’s blog Tuesday evening to explain why they were essentially playing air guitar alongside headliner Bruno Mars. Flea’s explanation: The NFL didn’t want live instruments as part of the show, lest something go wrong with the audio. Instead, the NFL told the Red Hot Chili Peppers they’d have to pre-record the guitar, bass and drum tracks to play behind

Overdue farm bill passes;
Cornyn and Cruz vote no

WASHINGTON– A lot of people– from needy families in Dallas to small farmers in rural Texas– have been holding their breath for today’s passage of the five-year farm bill. But for Texas’ senators, the long wait wasn’t worth it. Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz both voted against the bill, citing its huge price tag and lack of reforms to programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as food stamps. “Unfortunately, this bill is not really a Farm Bill, it’s a Food Stamps bill with some farm provisions,” Cruz said in a statement today. “Instead of locking people into an endless

Wendy Davis’s Media Meltdown

It’s been a rocky rollout for the Wendy Davis campaign in Texas. She announced for governor four months ago on the strength of the massive public attention paid to her 13-hour filibuster of a bill limiting abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy. But since then her media operation has been so rocky, seasoned Texas journalists are mocking it. David Mann, editor of the liberal Texas Observer, wrote a blunt article calling her campaign a “media fail”: “The Wendy Davis operation is about the worst at media relations that I’ve ever seen. Her team’s mismanagement of the press is damaging her

The Mississippi Supreme Court is refereeing a dispute between a Wilkinson County couple and ExxonMobil Corporation over an alleged alligator infestation, with justices scheduled to hear oral arguments Tuesday. The dispute involves more than 80 alligators that Tom Christmas and his wife argue they didn´t discover on land next to their homestead until four years after they bought the property in southwest Mississippi. The Christmases bought 35 acres between Centreville and Woodville in December 2003. The land had previously been used for hunting and timber and was not occupied when they bought it.

“There is no place in the movement for the white liberal. He is our affliction.”—James Baldwin Five years ago, while fervently supporting the candidacy of the man who would become America’s first black president, I came to the realization that I didn’t actually know any black people. Most of the people I did know (i.e., other white people) didn’t know many black people either. One, maybe two, was the norm. I asked one white guy I knew if he had any black friends, and he replied, “You mean ones that aren’t on television?” I wanted to know why integration—actual, genuine integration—had failed

WASHINGTON — More than 800 soldiers are under criminal investigation for gaming a National Guard program that paid hundreds of millions in bonuses to soldiers who persuaded friends to sign up during the darkest years of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, USA TODAY has learned. Fraudulent payments total in the "tens of millions," with one soldier allegedly pocketing $275,000 in illegal kickbacks, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY. At least four others made more than $100,000 each. "This is discouraging and depressing," Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said in an interview.

With the obesity epidemic in full swing and millions of American living in neighborhoods where fruits and vegetables are hard to come by, the Obama administration thought it saw a solution: fund stores that will stock fresh, affordable produce in these deprived areas. But now, three years and $500 million into the federal Healthy Food Financing Initiative, there´s a problem: A study suggests it´s not working. Adding supermarkets to areas with short supplies of fresh produce does not lead to improvements in residents´ diets or health outcomes, according to a report published Monday in the February issue of Health Affairs. Researchers studied two

It is three decades since Princess Diana, with a single stroke of fashion genius, took a former colony captive. In Melbourne in 1988, she paired an off-the-shoulder gown of glimmering turquoise with a strap of art-deco emeralds worn not as a choker – but as a bandeau across her forehead. She did so, it is said, because she had sunburn on her back. Nonetheless, the iconic image of stylish, youthful, modern Monarchy made global headlines and bewitched a generation of Australians who went on to vote ‘No’ in an independence referendum in 1999.

ABC’s Slime-Time News

On March 21, 2012, NBC led the nightly news with reporting about the Trayvon Martin case. CBS led with a report that the NFL was imposing unprecedented sanctions on a team for a scheme that involved paying athletes to injure opponents. It was a slow news day, and the Big Three newscasts had to choose unconventional leads. But ABC’s lead on World News was, even in that context, unlikely. It was news the network had played an integral role in creating: The program’s aggressive coverage of an obscure food product was yielding results, and Diane Sawyer announced that some of America’s

White Lodging -- a company that maintains Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton and Westin hotel franchises -- has apparently suffered a data breach that exposed guests´ credit and debit card information in 2013, independent security researcher Brian Krebs said. Banking industry sources noticed fraud among hundreds of cards that had been previously used at Marriott hotels, wrote Krebs, who first reported that Target had suffered a massive data breach around Black Friday last year. "But those same sources said they were puzzled by the pattern of fraud, because it was seen only at specific Marriott hotels, including locations in Austin, Chicago, Denver,

A convicted quadruple-murderer is on the loose this morning after escaping from custody in Michigan and abducting a woman, corrections officials confirmed to ABC News. Officials say Michael David Elliot escaped from the Ionia Correctional Facility Sunday before driving to Indiana. Elliot abducted a woman with a knife or box cutter before driving with her to Elkhart, In. - about 130 miles south - where they stopped for gas, Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan said. While the woman was able to escape, Elliot remains at large. There’s no word on how he was able to escape from custody. Michigan State Police Lt.

President Barack Obama said that he is “in a lot of ways” less liberal than former Republican President Richard Nixon and said Fox News Channel´s Bill O’Reilly has been “absolutely” unfair to him throughout his presidency in an interview that aired Monday night. “In a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was,” Obama said. “He started the EPA, started a whole lot of the regulatory state that has helped keep our air and water clean.” Obama´s comments came in response to O´Reilly asking him if he was “the most liberal president of all time.” Obama also listed Franklin

The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law. Of course, Republicans immediately tried to brand the findings as “devastating” and stark evidence of President Obama’s health care reform as a failure and a job killer. It is no such thing. (SNIP) The new law will free people, young and old, to pursue careers or retirement without having to worry about health coverage.

Just days away from the administration’s deadline to extend the nation’s borrowing authority, Speaker John A. Boehner told House Republicans he sees no reason to pick a fight they cannot win on the issue. “There’s no sense picking a fight we can’t win,” the Ohio Republican told members in a private conference meeting, according to sources in the room. Leadership has been looking for a plan that could draw Republican support for a debt limit increase, and Boehner urged his members to coalesce around a plan. If they do not, he warned, the Senate could move first and tack a provision to

There are few medical procedures feared more than a colonoscopy. But what if there was another way to screen patients for colon cancer that´s much less intrusive? Now there is: The PillCam, an ingestible camera that takes high-speed photographs as it works its way through the digestive system and helps doctors spot polyps and other early signs of colon cancer was just cleared by the Food and Drug Administration. The device is designed for patients who have had trouble with the cringe-inducing colonoscopy procedure, which involves probing the large intestine with a tiny camera embedded in a four-foot long, flexible

The Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, became law almost four years ago. It became operational last Oct. 1. Yesterday, Feb. 4, 2014, the ACA may well have been dealt its death blow. The Congressional Budget Office released a major study of the government’s budget and its effect on the overall economy over the next 10 years. In dull bureaucratic language, it delivers a devastating analysis of the inefficiencies, ineffectualities and problematic social costs of ObamaCare. The one-two punch: Virtually as many Americans will lack health coverage in 10 years as before the law was passed — but 2 million fewer

President Obama, outlining his push Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet access to more U.S. schools, said Americans should demand the same level of technology in learning facilities as they do in coffee shops. “In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools,” Obama said in Adelphi, Md., highlighting $750 million in new commitments from private companies to put digital learning labs in schools. Under his plan, the Federal Communications Commission will also spend $2 billion to connect 20 million students to wireless technologies.

Seven seconds of total silence. The nation´s top intelligence officials have answered the question countless times over the past year and a half, but they seemed stumped during a House hearing Tuesday when a Florida congressman asked them one more time: "Can anybody at the table tell us when somebody will be held responsible for the murders in Benghazi?" For seven seconds, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA director John Brennan, Defense Intelligence Agency director Michael Flynn, National Counterterrorism Center director Matt Olsen and FBI director James Comey sat quietly – each one seemingly waiting for one of the others to

I don´t believe Woody Allen is a child molester. But when I read Dylan Farrow´s letter in The New York Times accusing her adoptive father of sexual abuse, I didn´t think she was making it up. I believe it´s a scenario she´s come to believe after it was implanted in her impressionistic head as a kid. On March 18, 1993, after a Connecticut prosecutor declined to charge Allen after a three-month investigation of the same allegations, I interviewed him at his Fifth Ave. apartment. Soon Yi Previn, then his girlfriend and now his wife and mother of their two adopted children, answered the

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said the Congressional Budget Office report that shows Obamacare will make the labor force lose 2.3 million full-time workers by 2021 is positive because it lets Americans be “free agents.” “We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency. People can do what they want,” Reid told reporters outside of a close policy luncheon. “And what they’re saying here is — and the fact checkers have already done this — the Republicans talk about losing

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Trader Joe´s grocery-store chain has dropped a plan to open a new store in the heart of the city´s historically African-American neighborhood after activists said the development would price black residents out of the area.

It said the grocery-store development would "increase the desirability of the neighborhood," for "non-oppressed populations."
