TRENTON — The New Jersey Legislature today released thousands of pages of subpoenaed documents provided to a state Assembly committee investigating the George Washington Bridge scandal. Many of the documents were given to the panel by an attorney for David Wildstein, a former top official of the Port of New Jersey and New Jersey, and include the e-mails that emerged on Wednesday revealing a top aide to Gov. Chris Christie was directly tied to the traffic-clogging closure of local access lanes leading to the bridge in Fort Lee. Democrats have sought for months to link the lane closures to the

This is laughable. Our Marines and soldiers dying in Afghanistan for a war that the 0 doesn´t support. Americans dead in Benghazi, IRS being used by the administration against anyone who disagrees with them, NSA snooping violating the 4th amendment, a war against white people abetted by 0bama, and this is what the feeding frenzy is about? Hypocrites, liars,lofo pandering run amok. I´m glad I moved out of the country, it truly has gone to hell

Super hard hitting news

"I-95 approaches were free and clear by 0830 and the Ft Lee approaches were packed

I hate NYC, but had to drive 3 people to JFK airport this summer. Backup at GWB was 90 minutes, on a Saturday. Truck stalled on the bridge upper road.

In the words of Rush, another Drive by Shooting.

Pity the poor low-level staffers who had to gather all these thousands of pages of poo-poo, then copy it, collate it, staple it and send it out. (Unless the NJ equivalent of GSA did it all for them.) Then some wonk had to decide what kind of binder to stuff it all into and Tweedles Dum and Dee had to get it delivered unto all the worthies. Poppycock, no emphasis on the poppy.

Only this time it´s Rush doing the drive by shooting.

We are well aware of Christie´s failures and hardly need anyone telling us he is not presidential material.

Lots to talk about how the left is destroying our country without wasting time Christie bashing.

It appears the media let it out of the bag early. I assumed they were gonna replay the McCain gambit with Christie...you know, let Christie think the media likes him because he´s the closest thing to a regular Democrat.

Then, if he actually gets the nod to run for President, he´s outlived his usefulness by eliminating real conservatives so then they trash him just like any other Republican.

Interesting how a traffic jam has the media focused like a laser beam when four dead Americans in Benghazi, and a massacre of Navy SEALs in the Tangi Valley, Afghanistan, are nothing to see and we should just move along. The media is drunk on its power to decide what is newsworthy and what is not. They are amoral, rabid ideologues who push an agenda down our throats every single day. They ceased long ago being reporters of news. They are now progressive political propagandists, i.e., communists committed to the destruction of this country and their job is to control information.

Christie may or may not be a viable candidate for the GOP nomination, but if he falls short, it will have nothing to do with this media-created tempest. I haven´t spoken with anyone who cares a whit about traffic cones in New Jersey and who ordered them. But, this is Texas, so we´ll see.

The real killer traffic jam is the new, communist schemed, ObamaFraud! This would be the perfect time to take the names of all the pre programmed so called reporters who exploded this non story in robotic stupidity
Then look back and see how many of these commies covered Benghazi, IRS, NSA, gun control, keeping out more aliens. Now is the ideal time for good, New Media
to begin attacking the old robot commie media, and relentlessly exposing their agitating, Party Line ways.

Christie handled the exposed scandal as well as anyone could. I think the real issue is Christie´s judgement in selecting top aides and his communication skills with his staff. He chose this woman to be in a key position. Then his communication and personality led her to assume that she was doing what he would want her to do.

We have the same problem in the White House right now. The head of the IRS assumes that the president wants her to punish tea party people. The head of the EPA assumes that the president wants big business punished. And they may very well be right, but either way, the consequences belong to the top guy. Who you chose to promote to power, and how well they know you is everything in politics.

I´ve said it before. Government is too big. No one person is actually in charge. They hire layers and layers of staff who then need to get noticed so the staff does what they think will get the most attention. It may be good management style in business but most government employees have never worked anywhere else. They do not have to meet any expectations except show up occasionally.

Isn´t it amazing what the press can do when they are really motivated to get someone? I mean, here they can find and dig through thousands of pages of documents about Christie, yet they cannot find even simple things about Odouchebag, like a birth certificate, or college transcripts, or why he has invalid and probably forged documents like Social Security and Selective Service registrations.

Well, another good thing that may come of this, aside from Christie learning who his friends are and aren´t (like the ´Rats he claims to be able to "work with" and "reach across the aisle"), it that he will know what Sarah Palin went through.

Seems like there´s so much to process every day that I´m getting slower on the uptake. Can an Ldotter or two explain what appears to me to be a discrepancy?

On 1/9/14 Christie stated "I was blindsided yesterday morning.. . . I had no knowledge or involvement in this issue"

On 12/6/13, Wildstein issued a statement saying he was resigning from the PA because the "controversy was a distraction". What controversy? If there was one, why did not his childhood buddy, the guy who was putting him in line for cushy jobs, know anything about it? If Christie and Wildstein are astightasthis, are we to believe no conversation about the GW mess took place between them? I´m lost.

I agree that this is an unfortunate distraction - from Benghazi, Obamacare, IRS, etc. But since we´re doing it anyway, can we please do it right?

Have we become so callus that we can´t question any faults or problems associated with Republicans who screw the pooch as badly as these people did. This was a deliberate and nasty payback scheme that was discussed by different bureaucrats and politicians, some of who were appointed by Christie.

This action inconvenienced a great many people, including members of all political party´s. These people knew there were substantial public consequences to their stupid payback scheme. They obviously didn´t think there would be internal payback.

That I think says it all.

6,000 pages and they ( the media, Democrats , Limbaugh, tea party ) still can´t find a link to Christie.
# 20 Everyone knew that the lane closures for 96 hours were a mess since they happened in September.
Not months as Limbaugh alleges, BTW.
And Limbaugh is lying about Christie and Barry walking arm in arm through NJ.
Christie actually joked about the brouhaha in December with the media because he found
the idea that he would waste his time on a dirty trick like this laughable.
Former US Attorney Christie was known for prosecuting corrupt politicians.
As Governor of 9 million citizens, he was running for reelection, the state was still rebuilding from Sandy and he´s going to jeopardize everything
by engaging in a stupid frat house type prank like this right before the election ?
Christie plays hardball , but, to accuse him of being a part of this juvenile stunt is ridiculous.
Every time Barry flies into my city for one of his fundraisers, the airport and the surrounding interstates are shut down, delaying flights and inconveniencing thousands.
Bill Clinton shut down LAX for a haircut and the media laughed.

#1, I recently moved to Cuenca, and a lot of the ex-pats here have echoed similar sentiments. America has become a rather scary place, where federal prosecutors strip-search consular officials without risk of so much as being fired; SWAT teams routinely break down doors in military-style raids; and every police chief wants drones armed with rubber bullets (well, rubber for now), cameras, and tear gas. The Constitution? What Constitution?!?

As the estimable Conrad Black expressed so clearly, I love America but I can´t say I like it any more. It breaks my heart what has happened to our wonderful America, especially over the past five years. It will take many years of hard work, an iron will, and true and loving dedication to bring America back from the brink. Sadly, the MSM is doing all that it can to undermine any such sentiments and any such efforts.

This controversy is already another Rohrschach inkblot test for anyone commenting.

If you can´t get this one figured out, it would explain a lot about
whatever else you might be thinking (such as that Rick Perry is a viable
candidate for president, etc)...

Christie is Mister Hot Dog, thinks he´s sharp as a tack.
His administration was out of control.
Would you want a clueless idiot with whiny excuses to be our next POS POTUS??

This bridge (and I have successfully driven over it back in the day)
is the nation´s busiest bridge, in our most important metropolitan area.

For FOUR DAZE these idiots effed with it.
And the Fat Guber sez he didn´t know?
How stupid is he?
How stupid does he think we are?
Who wants this pig for president?
He´s a liberoid Blue State nut anyway.
Loves to suck up to NO-Bomber, too.

This was a public safety hazard.
(NOT "a few traffic cones")...
It should not have ever been allowed.
Once it commenced, it should have been corrected within hours at most.

For this to go on FOUR DAZE and the idiot sez he´s too dumb to know
about it, speaks volumes.

Christie is unqualified to be a guber or a POS POTUS.
His staff is crap.

And on a side note...
When referencing the current POS POTUS and the FLOTUS, we must always
be more respectful and observe proper decorum, such as using correct
spelling of monikers.

Wookiee is spelled with two E´s.
Whereas her Oreo husband is just an ordinary cookie, with one E.
And remember...
"Don´t let them eat cake!! Or anything else they might enjoy!!"
As spoken by... The Wookiee.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound.

Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
