Christie: Warning about Flynn among reasons
I was fired from Trump transition

Politico, by Ryan Hutchins

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 12/7/2017 7:11:57 AM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday he was ousted as head of President Donald Trump’s transition due in part to his opposition to the hiring of Michael Flynn as national security adviser. “I thought it was a significant reason,” Christie said at an unrelated press conference at his office in Trenton. The governor, one of the first establishment Republicans to back Trump during the primary and still one of the president´s most loyal supporters, was chairman of the transition until he was unceremoniously fired just days after the election and replaced with Vice President Mike Pence. Christie said it was clear

That’s now his idea of why he was fired. And note that even Christie has to say that it was “among reasons I was fired” and that he was ousted as head of the transition “due in part to his opposition to the hiring of Michael Flynn…”. Not the reason.

Christie seizing the moment to get a timely headline. Remind us of the other reasons you were fired, Chris.

This big blowhard did himself in and threw his friends under the bus over the GW bridge incident which he ordered.
Too bad because if he had any integrity he would have been able to take over the FBI and perform brilliantly as he did as a Federal Prosecutor.

No that´s not what happened.
Christie lifted his overstuffed face from the ´all you can eat buffet´ and he missed his opportunity. The train pulled out of the station and the big bloated, wind bag, blowhard was left standing on the dock.

At one time, I had high hopes about Christie and his future in the Republican party, even as Presidential material.

Then, he turned out to be just another self-interested politician.

Drain the swamp.

He won NJ with 65% of the vote in a Democrat state last time around and then blew it. The GW Bridge scandal was not ethical and then closing public park beach down while he and his family enjoyed the Holiday was the last straw.
Trump made the right decision

Christie, ever the committed leftist, just can´t resist invoking his 0bama style leftist commentary.

Keep it up lefty. Just so we all know exactly where your coming from. How can a guy this size always walk around with his head up his rectum? Now you´ve got to give him credit, THAT is quite a trick.

On Friday, CNN peddled an incorrect report about Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks. They allege that the then-presidential candidate, his son, and other folks within their inner circle received an email that contained a decryption key to a trove of documents from Wikileaks. The problem was this email was already made public—and the date was wrong. Here’s the correction: Correction: This story has been corrected to say the date of the email was September 14, 2016, not September 4, 2016. The story also changed the headline and removed a tweet from Donald Trump Jr., who posted a message about

Donald Trump Jr. asked a Russian lawyer at the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting whether she had evidence of illegal donations to the Clinton Foundation, the lawyer told the Senate Judiciary Committee in answers to written questions obtained exclusively by NBC News. The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, told the committee that she didn´t have any such evidence, and that she believes Trump misunderstood the nature of the meeting after receiving emails from a music promoter promising incriminating information on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump´s Democratic opponent. Once it became apparent that she did not have meaningful information about Clinton, Trump s

OAKLAND, Calif. — If ownership is already convinced McAdoo is going to be dismissed after the season, there might be no reason to wait until Jan. 1, especially considering three of the last four games are at MetLife Stadium, and these final home games could spark some of the ugliest moments in franchise history. An ESPN report stated McAdoo “could be’’ fired as soon as Monday. Fans are irate at the way McAdoo ended Eli Manning’s 210-game starting streak, even though co-owner John Mara was completely on board with getting a look at Geno Smith — the starter Sunday for a 24-17

Former “Today” show co-host Meredith Vieira laughed with Matt Lauer about the time she went into his office and found a “huge bag of sex toys,” in a resurfaced video from 2016. Lauer appeared on “The Meredith Vieira Show” with his then-co-host Savannah Guthrie in May 2016, and Vieira recalled the time she went "snooping" in his office and discovered the bag of sex toys. “You had a huge bag of sex toys, yes you did, in your closet, Matt,” Vieira told her studio audience. The audience audibly groaned as an uncomfortable Guthrie shook her head and cringed at the

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Faye Gary, a former police officer with the Gadsden Police Department in Alabama, has been featured in the news in recent days making the unsubstantiated claim that she was told to protect young cheerleaders from Roy Moore at local ballgames. Speaking in a Breitbart News interview on Wednesday, Gary falsely claimed that Moore “wanted to keep segregation here in the south.” She then claimed that Moore “hates Jews. He hates blacks. He hates Muslims. He hates gays.” When challenged for specifics, Gary conceded that “I don’t know exactly what he said about Jews, but he doesn’t like

Special counsel delays grand jury testimony

Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team has postponed an anticipated grand jury testimony linked to his investigation into Michael Flynn amid growing indications of possible plea deal discussions. Additional witnesses were expected to be questioned soon including a public relations consultant hired by Flynn´s lobbying firm who was given an early December date deadline to appear before the grand jury, according to a person at the company. Ahead of the delay, the impression was that the testimony needed to happen soon, the source said. "Time seems to be of the essence," said the source at Sphere Consulting, the PR firm where

It seems as if every day, another celebrity is being charged with sexual harassment ranging from several decades past to just a few months ago. Although I am a ´Me Too´ since childhood, I´m not that quick to lump myself in with those women making these charges and it would be prudent to examine carefully the circumstances of these incidents. I´ve never been a fan of Al Franken but I´ve noticed that those photos showing his groping of women also show those women smiling as if they´re in on the joke.

‘Hooker’ says Spitzer liked sex toys,

Disgraced “Luv Gov” Eliot Spitzer likes to take long romantic walks — at the end of a leash, new court papers claim. The hooker-happy former governor’s fetishes include a penchant for paying “young girls” to lead him around “on all fours” like a dog — and use kinky sex toys on him, former escort Svetlana Travis Zakharova alleged. Zhakharova, who last month struck a misdemeanor plea bargain after being charged with extorting $400,000 from Spitzer, filed the stunningly revealing papers in Manhattan Supreme Court, seeking to lift a gag order imposed as part of her prosecution.

Matt Lauer’s firing casts NBC’s call on

After Matt Lauer was unceremoniously fired from the “Today” show Wednesday, you had to wonder: Why did NBC smother Ronan Farrow’s explosive, months-long investigation into Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults and predatory behavior — an investigation undertaken by one of its own employees? (Farrow is a “contributor” to NBC News; his “Undercover With Ronan Farrow” reports have aired, ironically, on the “Today” show.) Did NBC know that, in Lauer, it was harboring its own tainted star — and that Farrow’s Weinstein piece could, perhaps, lead back to a co-anchor of its cash-cow morning show? It just didn’t make sense, then or now,

As the sex scandals continue their relentless forward march, early efforts at a course correction are beginning to emerge. Some of these efforts are necessary and involve making distinctions — distinctions between, say, felonious assault, which should lead to prison, and really gross workplace behavior, which should lead to serious disciplinary action but should probably fall short of complete ruination. The danger, however, is that these distinctions get drawn in such a way that they protect one set of offenders and not the other — purely on the grounds that the protected set is made up of people you like or

A Jamaican-born professor of philosophy has had enough of hearing invectives spewed against America, especially in the classroom. Prompted to challenge the derision of the American Dream and the depiction of America as a white supremacist nation, Dr. Jason D. Hill of DePaul University wrote an open letter to journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates. Coates’s 2015 book, titled “Between the World and Me,” is often required reading to depict the black American experience to students. Hill calls such required reading “child abuse” or “child neglect.” Hill is disturbed by the growing anti-American orthodoxy that he hears on American campuses, and believes Americans need to be

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Frank Luntz, a GOP establishment messaging consultant, was visibly flabbergasted as every single one of his focus group participants in a Birmingham area Vice News-produced panel backed Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars.

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time.

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
