Will Christie aide fired over Bridgegate
rat out her boss? Lawyer with deep
ties to the governor splits with
Bridget Kelly over ´conflict of interest´

Daily Mail [UK], by ML Nestel, David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/22/2014 3:56:27 AM

The lawyer slated to represent a top Christie Christie aide sacked over the Bridgegate scandal is no longer representing her, MailOnline has learned, leading to speculation that she may be planning to turn on her former boss. The news came on an icy, snow-drifted Tuesday as Christie took his oath of office for a second term as New Jersey´s governor. Walter Timpone, a Christie-linked attorney whom Kelly retained after her public firing, received the subpoena served on her Friday by a New Jersey Assembly special investigative committee. But he is stepping aside because he has a conflict of interest.

Christie is toast. If there is dirt, it wont come out until it is convienent, right before the election. If there is no dirt, the libs will leave him with this hanging over his head until after the election.

Couldn´t happen to a nicer Rino!

Add to #2, how do we know that some wealthy DEM donor didn´t give Bridget Kelly $1Million cash create this scandal? Seems she has money problems. Or squeeze her otherwise (illegal aliens working in her house, marital infidelity, etc), ya know routine Dem scandal material.

At the beginning I had no opinion. Now that so many emails, etc. have come out and so many assertions disputed, I think this is an attempt on the part of Hillary favorers to take Christie out. If it fails, and I think it will, he may be just the candidate we need since they will already have done all they could do to destroy him.

I certainly do not condone this behavior. Using your power like this is just wrong, stupid and vindictive. What I can´t wrap my brain around is the fact that these vaunted political elites will do things so obviously wrong and then use email and text which becomes a trail right back to them. In this day and age you have to be smarter than that because there will come a reckoning especially for any Republican. First of all, have some ethics and integrity. Secondly, realize that you are held to a higher standard. This is no longer Sandy Berger´s political arena. Republicans will always pay a much higher price for wrongdoing.

Benghazi, Ambassador and 3 other Americans dead. IRS going after political views, Tea Party. Health care in USA totally in chaos. Government gunrunning in Mexico, people dead. The crickets don´t chirp. Traffic lane closed on bridge attributed to Republican contender (just for the record I wouldn´t vote for him) but: monumental disaster and non-stop media coverage!

This is amazing. Careers being battered over traffic in NYC? What happens in cities like Boston, Los Angeles or NYC when Obama comes to town? Man made traffic jams.
It is funny watching the left. Every thing the right has said about Obama, is now being said about Christie (a culture of this behavior, pay-back, corruption, etc). So it has hit home, and the Alynski tactic to turn the table and call your enemy what they call you is being played out right in front of us.

In this day and age, I just can´t believe that any political aide would send out traceable Emails on a payback scheme like this. None the less, it seems like it happened, and staff was full of amateurs not covering their tracks. Either that, or they thought they were invincible, never a good idea in politics.

Its a sad fact that political organizations are full of envy and not everyone is on the same page. It seems this sad situation will play out in the courts. Bridget Kelly seems to be in over her head at this point, but I´m sure some ambulance chasing shyster will come to her rescue soon.

I certainly wouldn´t want to be in Christie´s position at this time. There just isn´t any clear cut way out of this mess.

#´s 9/10, Yesterday DeBlasio made a point of denying plowing to the UES(Upper East SIde) from 39th to 69th street in Midtown and all over the place he had traffic snarled for hours. Channel 5 reports an ambulance took half an hour to go ONE block, while on an emergency run.

In this day and age it has become very easy to destroy your opponent by slipping one of your operatives into their organization. Then when the time is right have them instigate a controversy with emails and lots of other ´proof´. If you are a politician, the only people you could really trust are the friends you grew up with. There is no way you could trust any of the people around you who you have only known a short time. It would be a horrible life in my opinion.

Somehow to me this story lacks balance. Let´s see Christie gets politically assassinated for some sort of tangential involvement in a traffic snarl on the GW bridge mainly because he´s a threat to Hillary´s presidential aspirations. Oh, I know what it lacks . . . when is Hillary going to receive her presidential commendation for actions above and beyond the call of duty in the Middle East with a special citation for containing the movie riot in Benghazi?

If this is the way Christie runs an administration, then he shouldn´t be allowed to come within shouting distance of the White House. He either knew and condoned this misconduct, or he doesn´t have control of his senior staff. Either option is very bad.

And yes, closing off access to a major interstate bridge purely for small-time political reasons is a not a small matter for a governor.

As Republicans, we can do a lot better than this.

The major media is biased and corrupt, but the answer is for them to cover everyone zealously, not to ignore Republican transgressions the way they do with Democrats. I worry that some Republicans are losing the plot over this story.

Then, like a bad comedy, this same traitorous conveniently blinded Diane Sawyers news actor media, goes bananas over a traffic jam that might have been caused by a so called republican, who actually may only be a watered down RINO !

His royal highness Obama, causes thoughtless traffic jams like that EVERYWHERE HE GOESS !

It´s hurting Christie. I don´t know if the damage is permanent. These rankings are from Fox as of this morning:

"Tied up at the top - The Republican presidential field is as wide open as an Iowa cornfield. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., lead the pack with 13 percent each, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 12 percent. Rounding out the field: Former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., 11 percent, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, 9 percent, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., 8 percent, Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., 6 percent, and Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La., 3 percent."

#21 - are you kidding? Watch closely as the left flame grills Christie - over cones on a bridge.

It is highly doubtful the left will let us anywhere near a truly conservative candidate, never mind one who can withstand their character assassination(s) - true or false.

Liberals love ´knocking the legs out from under´ conservatives. It´s what they do best.

Christie´s appointees to the Port Authority board must have been bribed by the Dems, too, then. That´s who Bridget emailed to disrupt the bridge traffic, they obviously knew what the plan was, and put it into affect. So if it was a Dem plot they all had to have been bribed and in on it, not just Bridget.

# 25 Christie is guilty because he isn´t Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin.
It defies credulity that a former US Attorney who for 6 years specialized in going after corrupt politicians ,
gangs and arms traffickers is going to engage
in a childish stunt like this.
Putting orange cones on a bridge for 4 days ?
What would be the purpose ?
And how would doing that to
commuters " punish " a mayor ?
This whole thing sounds like something a
high schooler would do.
The article is full of breathless speculation because the original lawyer has a conflict of interest.
Rachel Maddow of the " Nothing But Christie " company could have penned it.

The usual suspects are all over this w/their conspiracy theories and related paranoia. Predictable, yet it´s real simple.
Henry II, in a fit of pique and frustration, complained loudly in front of his Knights; "Cannot someone rid me of this meddlesome priest(Thomas a´ Becket)". Four took him literally, went to Canterbury Cathedral and murdered Becket. Fast fwd some 800 years to Christie´s Office where he uttered something similar. His aides did the rest. The principle of Lex Parsimoniae (Ockham) is appropriate, viz. the hypothesis w/the fewest assumptions is always the best and most likely solution!

And much of it is hostile to a RINO.

There is no good explanation for what happened.
Are the Christie aides that out of control?
You wouldn´t want them in the Spite Hutt.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country.

Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties.

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended.

Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us."

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death.

But don´t get too twitchy with the curtains in the early hours--only people in north and south America will be able to see it with the naked eye. If you live in the UK, mainland Europe or most of the rest of the world by far your best chance of seeing the eclipse is right

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. 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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close,” Bloomberg told the Times.
