David Wildstein: A Christie Groupie Scored?
Daily Beast, by Michael Daly

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/1/2014 4:48:26 AM

Christie knew! Christie lied! Those are the allegations from the former Port Authority official who set in motion the September lane closings on the George Washington Bridge that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has insisted he knew nothing about. The charges are plainly stated in a letter to the general counsel of the Port Authority from the lawyer for former Port Authority official David Wildstein. The mystery is why Wildstein and attorney, Alan Zegas, are saying it now. Wildstein clearly is not driven by guilt over having inflicted chaos on so many people over a four-day period that began with the first day of school

The Daily Beast´s editor might want to change the headline from ´scored´ to ´scorned´.

Christie treated Wildstein the way Springsteen treated Christie. LOL! Christie is beginning to get the Sarah Palin treatment from the msm. Say damaging, negative things that are unsupported or if latter found to be untrue either don´t retract them or never mention the correction. Christie is toast. When the msm is done with him the lo-fo voters will believe the bridge closing was his idea.

Agree with #2, Christie can kiss the WH goodbye. Bridgegate shows that politicians and "public servants" from both parties lord over us--we´re nothing more than game pieces to them. They care not a wit if we are stuck in traffic for hours, lose our health coverage, are taxed to death, or have our veterans´ pensions cut. They simply do. not. care.

I wonder if this is hurting MSDNC ratings. They run this Christie stuff 24-7 when nobody outside of Hoboken cares about a traffic jam on a bridge. At least Christie didn´t drive a car off the bridge and kill a female passenger.

Okay Chris Christie is not the guy that conservatives want in the race, at least that is my strong view. What I don´t understand is why they are using this now. Would it not serve their best interests to wait until he wins the primary (which would be like another McCain or Romney, ugh!) and then stomp him out? I would suspect if someone like Cruz wins it (Please!!!!!!) they will regret stomping out their moderate chosen loser.

Then again, they may be so arrogant now that they don´t think the "republicans" should have any candidate at all. In a dictatorship there is no opposition party, really.

This is all a waste of time. I don´t think a governor from the northeast could win a GOP primary anyhow. Particularly that governor.

It does, however, show us what lays ahead if Pubbies ever dare to show a spine.

While I agree with above posters that Christie is toast, I think this lane-closing business was merely the test to check for "doneness", as in cooking a turkey.

The real damage Christie did for himself was by walking on the beach arm-in-arm with Obama, as if they were two lovers. I know, I know, the gay community probably thought that was great, but the Republican base were pretty much turned off. Despite Christie´s need for federal funds to help rebuild, he didn´t need to look like a w#*r@.

Huge difference between Palin and Christie #2. The attacks on Palin were completely fabricated. She never had a ´bridgegate´ to deny or cover up. She did not hire corrupt staff, and terminated many corrupt leftovers.

The minimum Christie is guilty of is being a poor judge of character - not something you want in a chief executive. Obama is a different story. He makes no pretense of hiring people of good character.

So what ?
Christie must have driven women off the bridge or caused people to sleep in their cars , in the cold , for 20 hours or something .
The Democrats and the media are clearly worried about Christie.

But this story has legs.

Christie is already toast, as noted repeatedly above, for the simple fact
that he now has an extended hissy fit brawl going in the media.

#9, the Dem/Left has a goal of eliminating any and everyone they perceive to be a threat, either now or in the future. No opposition candidate will escape.

Our task is to find someone who is mostly to our liking and then protect and defend to the bitter end, not running away, not shrinking back. Let´s learn from how the Dems do it.

Unfortunately, there are too many in The Establishment who are the weakest spined creatures since single cell amoebas.

The attacks on Christie originate from the DNC/PIAPS camps. They certainly don´t originate from any Tea Party or RNC operatives, whether or not they like Christie.

Dem attacks can come at the last minute, like Romney´s "47%" comment, surreptitiously recorded, or like revealing Dubya´s decades-old drunk driving citation.

Dem attacks can also come at any moment in which the potential candidate is about to gain momentum and start securing financial contributions to further his/her candidacy, like this attack on Christie.

I have little use for Christie, but this bridge closure issue pales compared to the historical stumbles of Obama, Gore, John Kerry, or either of the Clintons. It´s just the drive-bys obeying their masters.

And that´s why fewer and fewer honorable people choose to run for high office.

Orange cones are an infantile urinary contest between the msm and Christie´s fan base. The core issue is governance. Christie presides over the most heavily taxed state in the union and he has done absolutely squat to ameliorate that cold reality. Further, he has always been a disciple of big bureaucratic government and is politically correct on all things trendy in the minds-eye of the media; in a word he is a progressive lefty from the solid blue No East and another loser just like Doofus Romney. That reality matters while the orange cones don´t!

Where are the people who believe in God in all these issues? Is it possible to want to milisiously hurt a human being for any reason and still be an honorable person? What is happening to this country and the people who live here? Are any human beings, regardless of party, so desperate to win an election that they would sell their right to go to heaven for just a few months or years for an office in a government thinking it would give them a few months or years of fame? God help all of us and God Bless America.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says.

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas.

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

Census, which is under investigation by several government agencies and by Congress, is refusing to turn over an estimated 1,900 e-mails and text messages between a regional supervisor in its Philadelphia office, where falsification of unemployment data took place, and a colleague in its Chicago region, who a source has identified as the supervisor’s mentor and confidant. On March 5, under the Federal Freedom of Information Act, I requested all e-mails between Fernando Armstrong, the regional director of the Philadelphia office, and Stanley Moore, Chicago’s regional director, from 2010 until my filing date.

CHICAGO -- Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it´s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison. The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn´t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught. On Feb.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
