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
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.
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.
In early April, news reports were filled with word that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes had recused himself from the committee´s Russia investigation. Outside activist groups accused Nunes of revealing classified information, and the House Ethics Committee decided to look into the matter. Nunes was forced to step aside from the Russia probe while the ethics watchdogs worked. Now, nearly four months later, the committee is still working, with no end in sight. It´s been an unusual investigation from the beginning. The House Intelligence Committee has non-partisan staff to watch members for any possible disclosures of classified information. If a member
After a week sparring with his attorney general and steaming over the Russia investigation consuming his agenda, President Donald Trump was closing in on an important win. House Republicans were planning to pass a spending bill stacked with his campaign promises, including money to build his border wall with Mexico. But an internal House Republican fight over transgender troops was threatening to blow up the bill. And House GOP insiders feared they might not have the votes to pass the legislation because defense hawks wanted a ban on Pentagon-funded sex reassignment operations — something GOP leaders wouldn’t give them. They turned to Trump,
Sergei Paylian was only 14 years old when he was horrified by the death of his young, attractive neighbor in Tbilisi, Georgia. As was the local Soviet custom at the time, her open coffin was carried through the street to the sound of music as a shocked teenage Sergei looked on, confronted for the first time with the issue of his own mortality. It sparked a lifelong obsession with aging – and how to reverse it. Now, standing in his neat Florida laboratory that looks more like a dentist’s office, the 66-year-old scientist is explaining how a lifetime of research has culminated
Social media giant Facebook blocked more than two dozen conservative Catholic pages in a 24-hour period, some with millions of followers, saying only they were “suspected of suspicious activities.” Facebook seemed to target only conservative Catholic pages with a significant following, since almost all had between hundreds of thousands and up to six million followers, according to Catholic News Agency (CNA), which broke the story. One of the blocked pages called “Fr. Rocky” belonged to a U.S. Catholic priest Fr. Francis J. Hoffman, executive director of Relevant Radio, whose page had 3.5 million likes. “Catholic and Proud,” an enormously popular page with six
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Dr. Ben Carson joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about healthcare reform and his accomplishments at HUD. Marlow began by asking for Dr. Carson’s take on the state of healthcare reform, as the Senate compromise bill collapses and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell talks about holding a straight repeal vote. “First of all, I would say health care is about the most important thing a person can have,” Carson began. “We need to take it out of the political arena and stop looking for a quick fix. There are no
Early in 2017, ABC breathlessly reported, "Hair loss and balding are something we associate with aging, not a younger population, yet more and more millennials say they´re experiencing hair loss." Theories include diet and health problems. But Moneyish.com didn´t hesitate to conclude: "Millennials are going bald from too much stress." We live in a rich, safe, successful country. Why is there so much stress? Why do so many young people feel they are under siege and about to be overrun? Perhaps we should look at what public schools, in tandem with higher education and the media, tend to emphasize – namely, pessimism and
Dunkirk is a great movie but there aren’t enough ‘women’ or ‘people of color’ in it, according to a review in USA Today. The movie – with a cast including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and former One Direction singer Harry Styles – has been given a slew of five-star reviews for its vivid, nailbiting depiction of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940. But though USA Today’s reviewer praised it too, he couldn’t resist giving it a little rap on the knuckles about its shameful lack of diversity and equality: The trio of timelines can be jarring as you
Author and cultural critic Bret Easton Ellis clarified his tweets over the weekend in which he said he would forego having political discussions with dinner guests, telling Breitbart News that it is not liberals or conservatives he is most frustrated with, but the media as a whole. In a series of tweets over the weekend, the American Psycho author wrote that he had been called a “Trump apologist” and accused of “colluding with Russia” by an unnamed individual as he was leaving the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday. “Is the left f*cking NUTS?” Ellis asked.
The Wall Street Journal unloaded on President Donald Trump late Monday night, lambasting the president for being mired in an investigation into Russian involvement in his campaign and for continually hiding damaging details that inevitably are leaked. Following a weekend when Trump’s attorney attempted to put out the fire – and failed spectacularly — the Journal editorial board finally had enough. Under the heading “The Trumps and the Truth,” they wrote, “Even Donald Trump might agree that a major reason he won the 2016 election is because voters couldn’t abide Hillary Clinton’s legacy of scandal, deception and stonewalling. Yet on
PRINCETON, N.J. - By the time Princeton University graduate student Xiyue Wang arrived in Iran to conduct research for his doctorate in history, he had already spent years living and working in politically turbulent countries. The Chinese-born U.S. citizen previously worked as a Pashto translator for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Afghanistan and spent time in Uzbekistan while a student at Harvard University. Wang, 37, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on spying charges after his arrest last summer, a spokesman for the Iranian judiciary said on Sunday. He is the latest American citizen to face jail
It wasn´t until I read Myrna Blyth´s excellent book, Spin Sisters that I started paying attention to the motives behind the articles I was reading in those women´s magazines we get at the supermarket. As a stay-at-home Mom raising six children, I bought them for helpful hints at coping with parenting and daily housekeeping. More and more, however, they carried warnings about everything from the foods we eat to the air we breathe. Having grown up during the Cold War, I can recognize Marxist propaganda anywhere telling me what to do in spite of cold hard facts.
President Donald Trump drives people crazy. Especially those in the media. They hate him so much, they leap on every anti-Trump rumor. The Federalist´s Jordyn Pair points out that the press repeatedly told us that a dozen Trump administration members were about to be fired, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Press Secretary Sean Spicer and strategists Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner. Months later, all still work for or with the administration. I actually wish Sessions had been fired, but Trump´s staff reshufflings are no more frequent than those of other administrations, including President Obama´s. The media so desperately want something bad to happen, to prove
Six months later...CNN´s Fareed Zakaria has it figured out. Or at least he thinks he does. Donald Trump became President Trump, the host mused, because Americans wanted to stick it to the elites. "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said. "There´s a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That´s why they´re sticking with him," he continued. (Free Beacon) Zakaria went on to argue that
On the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany last month, President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — a disclosure the advisers knew carried political and potentially legal peril. The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged. But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed. Flying home
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday that reports that President Donald Trump personally dictated his son’s misleading statement regarding a meeting last summer with a Russian attorney “bothers me a lot,” as do the president’s regular requests that the Senate do away with the legislative filibuster, a non-starter according to the South Carolina lawmaker. Still, Graham (R-S.C.) indicated that the possibility still existed for Trump’s presidency to “still be very consequential” if the president is able to refocus on healthcare and other legislative priorities. “It bothers me a lot because, one, he put his son in jeopardy,” Graham said on NBC’s “Today” show
CNN host Fareed Zakaria explained how President Donald Trump rose to power on "New Day" Monday morning. "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said. "There´s a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That´s why they´re sticking with him," he continued. Zakaria also blamed racism and diversity on Trump´s rise. "He knew that the election of a black president had stirred a kind of ugly
President Donald Trump is being accused of knowingly and actively trying to spread false news about the murder of DNC employee Seth Rich in a new lawsuit. Rod Wheeler filed a complaint on Tuesday in the Southern District of New York against Fox News, Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky claiming that they worked together to create a false narrative surrounding the death of Rich. Also contributing to the creation of that fake news story was President Trump according to court documents, which claim that the Commander-in-Chief wanted the story to include multiple fake quotes which were attributed to Wheeler. Wheeler is a former
President Obama and his allies are already whispering in the ear of the Democrat they´d like to see run for president next, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett and even the former president himself, according to Politico, all see Patrick, who left politics in 2015, as an heir apparent. He, however, doesn´t seem that interested yet, while Obama´s ex-vice president Joe Biden, seems more primed to run. ´I´m trying to think about how to be helpful, because I care about the country, and I´m a patriot first,´ he told Politico for the pub´s Off Message podcast. ´It´s
There’s more than bank fraud going on here. In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud. Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of
Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted on Monday of defying a court order to stop rounding up immigrants, and he may face jail time — another rebuke for a once-popular politician who was voted out of office last year. In 24 years as sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., Mr. Arpaio built a national reputation for harsh conditions in his county jail, and for his campaign against undocumented immigrants; his deputies detained people solely based on a belief that they were in the country illegally, and then turn them over to immigration authorities for deportation. In December 2011, a federal district judge hearing a racial
When Roseanne returns to the air next year, there will be a new character bending gender norms. Showbiz411.com reports that the revival will include a ´gender creative´ character. A source told the outlet that the character will be Mark, the 9-year-old son of Darlene and David, played by Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki. (Photos) Casting directors have been looking for a kid who can play ´sensitive and effeminate´ and ´displays qualities of both young female and male traits,´ the outlet reports. The original series followed the working-class Conner family in Illinois, and ran from 1988 to 1997. Roseanne Barr played
Kathy Griffin has shaved her head to show support for her sister Joyce, who´s currently battling cancer. An image of the 56-year-old comedian was shared by journalist Yashar Ali on Monday showing her smiling and patting her bald head after the buzz-cut. Griffin´s mother Maggie - who was seen on her daughter´s show My Life on the D-List - was pictured holding her hand over her mouth as she pats the comedienne´s bare head. Her mother later took to Twitter to comment on the show of support and added: ´My daughter Kathleen Mary is a wonderful human being.´ Griffin, an Oak Park, Illinois native, has a tragic family past
John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign, told CNN´s Alisyn Camerota on Wednesday that he loses sleep "every night" with the "burden" of having lost the Electoral College to Donald Trump. Camerota asked Podesta whether Clinton was surprised at how often Trump invokes her name this far into his presidency. "It´s unprecedented," Podesta said. " You never saw that behavior from any other president who´s talking about the person they beat. I think it really just bugs the hell out of him that she got three million more votes than he did and he keeps coming back
Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake claimed his party is in “denial” about President Donald Trump in a recently released excerpt from his upcoming book. (Snip) “I’ve been sympathetic to this impulse to denial, as one doesn’t ever want to believe that the government of the United States has been made dysfunctional at the highest levels, especially by the actions of one’s own party,” Flake continued.”… For a conservative, that’s an awfully bitter pill to swallow.” One of the few ways to stop a way-ward president is through Congress, Flake said, before calling on his fellow congressmen to acts as the “checks
