Christie Struggles To Recover

HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Gov. Chris Christie, who fell out of the running for president and then for a position in the Trump administration, has worked to improve his image this year, dedicating himself to the state and nation´s opioid epidemic and opening up again to New Jersey´s press corps. It hasn´t worked. His approval rating is among the lowest in history for any governor, as he enters the final months of his last term. He is under attack by the leading Democratic and Republican candidates - including his top deputy - running to succeed him. He describes himself as "old news." Only

Anybody who would ever trust Christie for anything is out of their mind.

Quite the disappointment. Christie won reelection handily and then just walked away from NJ to further his ambitions. There was a lot of hope there after he defeated the detestable Jon Corzine for his first term but he simply frittered away all the good will of the voters.

The politician/diaper quote is far from original, often attributed to Reagan, and certainly not from a Jersey English teacher. Hard to imagine a political writer not recognizing it.

Government should be limited. If a person is employed by the government, they work for the taxpayers and should be accountable to the taxpayers. Unfortunately, the taxpayers have become too lenient and forgiving.

Chris Christie is one of those people who forgot about the American taxpayer.

Christie´s problems all arose when he stopped talking and taking action like a bull in a china shop. He fell for the RINO and polls saying he would be beloved if he would just spend and dictate by a libtard would. More fool he.

It´s Not Your Father´s FBI

When former FBI Director Comey testified that President Trump had smeared the reputation of the FBI, I wanted to ask, "What reputation?" Whenever I see that Lifelock commercial of a bank being robbed while a security guard stands by saying, "I´m not a security guard. I´m a security monitor" I think that´s what the FBI has become --- mere monitors who stand by until the terrorists they´ve been watching carry out their attacks. Omar Mir Seddique, also known as Omar Mateen, was an American mass murderer who killed 49 people and wounded 58 others in a mass shooting at the Pulse gay

White House counsel Don McGahn has largely stepped back from managing Donald Trump’s response to the expanding Russia investigation, but that hasn’t stopped the president from lashing out at him about it anyway. Trump started the week by giving McGahn, a loyal supporter who was among the first Washington establishment figures to sign on with his presidential campaign, a dressing down in the Oval Office for not doing more to quash the Russia probe early on. The episode — recounted by four people familiar with the conversation — came as part of a broader discussion on Monday about the president’s

´Pizzagate´ conspiracy theorist
gets four years in prison
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 6/23/2017 6:48:07     Post Reply
An online conspiracy theory dubbed “pizzagate” ended Thursday with real-world consequences when a North Carolina man was sentenced to prison for arming himself with an assault rifle, traveling to the nation’s capital and firing his weapon inside a neighborhood pizza restaurant. Edgar Maddison Welch’s “ill-conceived plot” last year did “actual damage to the lives of real people”, a judge said before sentencing him to four years in prison. Judge Ketanji B Jackson said she had never seen a case like Welch’s, and she gave him a punishment on the upper end of guidelines, in part to send a message to

Bill O’Reilly’s return has been delayed as One America News Network has rescinded its job offer. OAN CEO Robert Herring publicly announced on Twitter Tuesday afternoon that the former Fox News host no longer had a standing offer. “We are pulling offer to @billoreilly, it could have paid him more than he made at Fox,” he tweeted. “We wish him luck.” Herring told Mediaite that O’Reilly and his agent had taken too long to make a decision after discussions about starting a talk show on OANN.

The White House Press
Briefing Is Slowly Dying

Over the course of the Trump administration, the White House’s daily press briefings have been pared progressively further back; they are now shorter, less frequent, and routinely held off-camera. The daily briefing is a venerable Washington tradition, though one that has often been a target of criticism. Media critic Jay Rosen has called for media outlets to “send the interns,” arguing that the briefing is a largely useless exercise in grandstanding. President Trump himself has publicly mused about canceling them, tweeting “Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for

The coast-to-coast opioid epidemic is swamping hospitals, with government data published Tuesday showing 1.27 million emergency room visits or inpatient stays for opioid-related issues in a single year. The 2014 numbers, the latest available for every state and the District of Columbia, reflect a 64 percent increase for inpatient care and a 99 percent jump for emergency room treatment compared to figures from 2005. Their trajectory likely will keep climbing if the epidemic continues unabated. The report, released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), puts Maryland at the very top of the national list for inpatient care. The state,

President Trump is set to travel today to Miami to begin reversing President Obama’s moves toward normal relations with Cuba. This is already being denounced by the liberal press. The Boston Globe reckons there will be “no winners, only losers, if Trump moves away from engagement with Cuba” and suggests that the “only constituency that wants to reverse course is the very small group of diehard, older Cuban-Americans, the Miami anti-Castristas, whom Trump credits for his victory in Florida last November.”

Trump’s Alleged Obstruction Was

What an irony the thing that has liberals salivating the most over the prospect of injuring President Trump was caused by aspects of the man’s character the same liberals would never recognize. As things currently stand, the only charge I’ve seen that actually puts the Trump presidency in jeopardy is that he obstructed justice. This would be behavior that could either be prosecuted criminally or the subject of impeachment. Reports suggest the wrecking ball within the administration, a.k.a. Special Prosectuor Robert Mueller, has wasted no time leaping from probing the Russia collusion charges to investigating possible obstruction. Probably, after finding no snakes

Right around the time Donald Trump was boarding Air Force One en route to Saudi Arabia, soon to escape a capital city obsessed with investigations into his campaign’s ties with Russia and the firing of FBI Director James Comey, his vice president was receiving a booming ovation inside a fifth-floor Ritz-Carlton ballroom in the nearby Virginia suburbs. It was the afternoon of May 19, and Mike Pence stood before several hundred members of the Council for National Policy—a secretive group of conservative movement activists, donors and intellectuals that meets under off-the-record rules—and downplayed the perception of a presidency in crisis.

Camille Paglia is one America´s smartest and most fearless writers. Like Elvis, she´s the kind of superstar who really needs no introduction—though it is worth pointing out that Pantheon has just published a collection of her essays on sex, gender, and feminism, titled Free Women, Free Men. It´s fantastic and if you love her work, it´s must-reading. (And there´s another collection due out in the Fall of 2018, which is more good news.) Last week I sat down with Paglia over email to talk about Donald Trump, Islamist terrorism, and the transgender crusade. Here´s a transcript of our conversation: JVL: Donald Trump

The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,

A senior US Energy Department official appointed by the Trump administration once described Barack Obama as a “Kenyan creampuff”, Mark Zuckerberg as an “arrogant, self-hating Jew” and climate scientists as “cultists” and “nuts”, according to a report. William C Bradford, director of the Department’s Office of Indian Energy, also appeared to believe Mr Obama might refuse to step down after his two terms of office, asking “what will we do? Is a military coup the only answer?” The messages were posted on a since-deleted Twitter account, @Brute_Bradford, The Washington Post revealed. Previously Mr Bradford caused

At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder

Ramadan will come to an end this weekend with the major Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr, and thus far President Donald Trump’s recognition of Islam’s holiest month has been limited to a statement that almost exclusively addressed violence and terrorism. Breaking with a tradition that dates back more than 20 years, to Bill Clinton’s administration, the White House will not be hosting an iftar—the meal Muslims consume to break their fast—in 2017.
