Feds investigating Christie´s
use of Sandy relief funds

CNN, by Chris Frates

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 1/13/2014 8:47:44 AM

Washington - Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. The news couldn´t come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country´s busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Christie´s signature achievement regarding Sandy was to help Obama get re-elected. Despite promises of no red tape by Obama and Christie, the recovery at the shore is no different than it was in New Orleans after Katrina. Red tape abounds and people are still hurting.

Christie is learning the hard way that karma´s a *itch.

The MSN is out to get Christie and just like McCain they will try to bring him down.
I am now Christie fan but look forward to his bare knuckles defense and victory over the clowns of the Fourth Estate.

I personally felt Christie lost any chance he´d ever have for higher office when he walked hand and hand with Obama after hurricane Sandy. I was surprised to hear Rush say it last week. What a lot of politicians don´t get is that those who made them can also break them. Whatever Obama or his people do, they scare the pants off whomever is running against them. Romney had a greasy, sick look about him during that last debate. Same look Christie had during his stroll with O. Fact is, tho, Christie never had a chance at president. Are you listening, Rove?

I don´t know what to make of this. Is this an attempt to smear Chris Christie or does he have to own up to misdoings.

I do know this. Whoever runs for the Republican ticket in 2016 is going to have to be clean, articulate, and battle ready. That person will have to convey that they are humbled by the position and will serve honestly and faithfully for the American citizens.

Christie pretty much "stayed home" when it was time to help elect Steve Lonegan as our new Republican Senator. Other than tepid endorsement and minimal participation in helping Lonegan win, Christie played games. That will not be forgotten, and I remind the RNC of their similar lack of support every time I get one of their mailings.

If Christie becomes the (R) nominee, I will vote for him. But I am almost thankful that he is thrown into the Bridge and Sandy messes NOW, instead of later. Let´s see how he handles himself, and how he deals with his "friends" in the media and across the aisle. This is an excellent "Snap out of it!" moment for our Governor.

The Saudi princes are right: RINO horns are an aphrodisiac, and the news media are aroused over the dust produced from Christie´s horns.

Christie´s fall from media grace will hopefully permit real Republicans to step forward with pro-growth, pro-individual and limited government policies. The media loved Christie because, like McCain, he is always ready to undermine fellow Republicans while making few if any jabs on Obama´s policies. The media will soon find other RINOs to put on a pedestal before pushing it,out from under them.

To answer #9, I´m staying home if (yet another) RINO is propped up in front of us. I haven´t missed an election in a very long time, but it has to stop.

When the Dems are in control, they try to destroy us, when a Repub gets in (lately) they hold the line until a Dem can get back in and continue the wrecking ball policies that ensure the republics demise and enrich the statist politburo...

#9, it´s different with Chris Christie. For those who stayed home and refused to vote the the eminently decent man, Mitt Romney, shame on you. But Chris Christie is not, IMO, a decent man. To vote for him would be to give one´s imprimatur to an obnoxious, hyprocritical, self-centered bully; to a man whose only real concern is himself; to a man who, despite his US Attorney credentials, does not care about the law. To me, it is not that "he is not conservative enough;" it´s that he is a deeply flawed and repugnant man. Assuming that is my sincere belief (and it is), do you really think I should cast my ballot for him?

#9 said nothing to indicate support of Christie, so forget the "RINO" ugliness. #9 asked a question that many of us discuss. And, much to my dismay, some of you have said, yes, you would stay home.

I have voted for many candidates over my lifetime who were not my first, 10th or 50th choice, but the alternative on the Dem ballot was not a possiblity for me. Of course, that´s what you do when you don´t vote. The guy on the other side gets a bye.

Now they are coming out as being ´investigative" reporters and implying he is doing the citizens of Jersey dirty with !Federal Taxpayer! funds...he should have kept the extra weight...he will need it to deflect all the arrows from Hillary´s Flying Monkeys and Hussein´s reconstituted former ACORN soldiers.

It is certain that funds were misused. i.e. misused right into political pockets.

Any time billions of public $$ are routed into a state that will happen. Some places are regarded as better, some as worse. NJ is widely regarded as worser.

I will say it again... Conservatives always vote, they don´t stay home. Saying they do, is just rhetoric and there is no proof in repeating that time and time again.

If that makes you feel better for always nominating poor moderate candidates then we are all doomed. Dole, McCain and Romney. I voted for them all and they all lost. Who´s up next... Christie or possibly McAmnesty again?

Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying
Townhall, by Larry Elder    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/18/2014 9:10:04 AM     Post Reply
If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

to judgment on Obamacare
Los Angeles Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/17/2014 9:28:37 AM     Post Reply
The first open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act ended this week with roughly 7.5 million people obtaining policies through the new state insurance exchanges, including more than 1.3 million at Covered California. That´s an amazing and welcome result, considering how badly many of the exchanges stumbled when sign-ups began in October. Nevertheless, it´s far too early to judge the success or failure of the healthcare law, given that key tests of the program´s sustainability have yet to be passed. Almost all of the exchanges got off to a wretched start, particularly the federally managed ones that shared a mind-bogglingly

Obamacare hasn´t "won"—but it´s making a pretty impressive run. The headlines about the Affordable Care Act have turned positive lately, and they´re starting to pile up. The most dire predictions from the law´s critics simply haven´t panned out, and now Democrats are headed into another big health care fight—the confirmation of a new Health and Human Services secretary—with stronger real-world evidence than they´ve had before. There´s important information we still don´t have about enrollment, and big risks loom on the horizon. Things could change. But right now, the tide seems to be turning in the White House´s favor. Narratives feed on themselves, and

War on women alert: One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack. Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women´s oppression under Islamic law. She´s blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims. Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women´s rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women´s rights. Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.

Well, it´s Easter time, and that means that the mainstream media and publishing houses can be counted upon to issue de-bunking attacks on orthodox Christianity. The best-publicized of these is Bart Ehrman´s How Jesus Became God. Many by now know at least the outlines of Ehrman´s biography: once a devout Bible-believing evangelical Christian, trained at Wheaton College, the alma mater of Billy Graham, he saw the light and became an agnostic scholar and is now on a mission to undermine the fundamental assumptions of Christianity.In this most recent tome, Ehrman lays out what is actually a very old thesis, going back

It was disappointing the other day to see President Barack Obama embracing the vulgar race hustler Al Sharpton. President Obama once eloquently confronted race in a memorable speech in Philadelphia in 2008. That speech was remarkable and honest and, to borrow a favorite word of the political left that still fawns over him, it was nuanced. But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the Democratic Party.

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the

The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy.

Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
