“TrafficGate” Isn’t The Reason Why I’ll Not Vote For Chris Christie, Chris Christie Is That Reason All Unto Himself

We’ve indeed reached a strange and perilous time in our national identity my friends. Let me say up front, I look forward to seeing many of you in the Marxist reeducation camps. The fervent believers out there who agree with the brave march towards our Socialist Worker’s Paradise, I bid you to enjoy your food pellets, those wonderful messages that the chocolate ration has been increased to 20 grams per week from 30, and your never ending war with East Asia.

I could not help but notice that Chris Christie has been accused of purposefully undertaking the single worst act of malfeasance imaginable in the realm of political crime, causing a traffic jam. While I do not ever agree with causing political opponents harm with the full weight and power of one’s political office, let’s place this particular crime in its full context. This bit of nontroversy received generous, nonstop, trumpeted distribution by our main stream media. MSNBC even went the extra mile to give it a full one hour special, in which the entire six seconds worth of actual news about a stolen email in which an aid kinda sorta alluded to possible contemplation of using road construction to bully a political adversary. No where has the aid been shown to have received instruction or permission from anyone else for this heinous act, which has now by the way been given a death toll, something usually reserved for reporting on war or natural disaster.

Now for just a half second’s perspective on this. Anyone who has driven across Pennsylvania can see half of the State’s highways are experiencing traffic disruption, with absolutely zero evidence that any work is being performed, or even being contemplated, complete with those wonderful signs that the whole freaking mess is courtesy of Barack Obama’s Stimulus Program. The answer is yes by the way, the Bamster’s name actually appears on those signs. Now, we’re just getting warmed up in the whole perspective game, so bear with me a little bit.

Let’s just take a little trip down memory lane for a peek into some of the Obama Administration’s shenanigans, which by the way in total, has to date not yet received the same amount of media attention that some lane closures along the New York, New Jersey border has been the beneficiary of. (It’s right about now that the more astute among you might ask, is this the first time in all of recorded history that there has been lane closures in and around the New York, North Jersey area?) Our President has illegally purchased high powered weapons and gifted them to Mexican Drug Lords so that they would be used in high profile crimes. His hope was that the violent crime wave that he fueled would sway public opinion in favor of his abrogation plans for our Second Amendment. In that particular scandal, Two American law enforcement officers sacrificed their lives, all for the political agenda of our 44th President. Eric Holder, our top law enforcement officer, is still ignoring a Contempt of Congress order, for his perjurious statements regarding this scandal. Barack Obama, our President, was implicated in the sale of his Senate Seat using former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich as a conduit. He fired US Inspector General’s, any of them who had made inquiries into ACORN, even before the O’Keefe videos, (and weren’t those fun,) broke on the Breitbart website. He ordered the arrest of a private citizen, Nakoula, B. Nakoula, for exercising his First Amendment rights by making an anti-Islamic movie. He did this for the sole purpose of deflecting attention from the root cause of the Benghazi incident, his disastrously naive foreign policy, rooted by the way in the preposterous notion that he had eradicated Al Queda. This represented a dark and evil first for our nation, Mr. Nakoula was our very first political prisoner. That little fact can not be stated loudly enough. During this same incident by the way, he managed to hack into the private computer of a CBS reporter, Sharyl Atkinson, and sent his top advisers to any available camera and or microphone with the explicit instructions to lie about the truth of what happened on that night and what his involvement in that incident happened to be.

Barack Obama has repeatedly taken executive fiat to the next level, completely dictating new law and bypassing the checks and balances proscribed by our national charter. He has shirked his constitutional duty as President by selecting previously enacted and signed legislation to not enforce, all based upon his personal whim. This unprecedented power grab by the way is something that every Democrat and his brother had accused previous GOP Chief Executives of undertaking, even though there was zero evidence that this was the case. In the case of Barack Obama, there’s not only the evidence available to prove this, he’s openly bragging about it in his speeches now. Bill Clinton acted as an agent for the current President to offer Joe Sestak a bribe to stay out of the Pennsylvania Senatorial election in 2010. The last time I checked, bribery was a felony, punishable by several years in a federal penitentiary. He violated the war powers act in Libya. He waged a war without congressional approval, and what’s worse, he didn’t even bother with reporting to congressional oversight once the generous 60 day window had passed. He ignored the specific restraints of the U.S. Constitution as well, which specifically states that only our Congress can authorize a declaration of war. He dropped the charges against the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia for voter intimidation, after the prosecution had overwhelmingly proved its case and a guilty verdict had been returned. He continued to pour money into the Solyndra debacle, even after it was made painfully clear that no amount of government largess would save the company. All this by the way so that he could hold his green energy speech from a still opened facility, rather than from one that would have been vacated a couple of weeks prior to his appearance touting that company’s success. Several members of his Administration have been found to have violated the Hatch Act, which prevents government officials from making political endorsements while performing their specific duties related to their positions. Several Government agencies have been caught throwing themselves lavish parties on the tax payers dime, during by the way one of the truly severe recessions experienced since WWII. One of those agencies was the GSA, a part of our bureaucracy tasked with identifying government waste and abuse. Let’s not forget the Pigford Scandal, one that has Barack Obama’s actual fingerprints on it. $50 Billion of tax payers money has been fraudulently disbursed to any Black person who merely claims that they had attempted to farm, whether or not they’d actually ever even seen a farm, as a part of the alleged abuse of the USDA, accused of not purchasing sufficient crops and livestock from Black owned farms in several Southern States. The illicit payments had two effects. One, it was a direct rip off of the taxpayers, as most of the money went to people who were never farmers, nor even dreamed of being farmers, and two, it diluted the payments to those who actually were farmers in the South and may have actually been injured by the USDA. (The case never went to trial, so we’ll never know if our government was guilty or innocent.) This by the way was why Andrew Breitbart was looking into the activities of Shirley Sherrod when that whole kerfuffle blew up.

Kathleen Sebelius has been caught blackmailing several insurance industry executives as a part of the new Obamacare Law, using threatened enforcement of the law as a means to secure political contributions. Eric Holder signed a search warrant to investigate a journalist working for Fox News, James Rosen. In the warrant, Holder went to the lengths of naming Rosen to be a co-conspirator in a case that saw information which proved malfeasance on the part of the Obama Administration leaked to the press. It was also learned as a part of the Rosen investigation, several AP reporters were also targeted and spied upon by the Obama Administration. The President used the IRS to target and harass political adversaries during both the 2010 Midterms and the 2012 Presidential Election. Donors to GOP candidates were audited at a rate that precludes random activity, and conservative PACs were effectively shut down. One of his top IRS appointees, Lois Lerner, actually invoked her Fifth Amendment Rights in lieu of giving testimony.

This last one was made even more troubling this week as the FBI has officially stated that there’s nothing to see here, even though the context of invoking Fifth Amendment rights in lieu of testimony is in itself a declaration that at some level, a crime had in fact been committed. Perhaps this has more to do with a puzzling statement made by the FBI last week, in which the once formidable investigative agency declared that law enforcement was no longer their mission. Apparently you see, in the age of Obama, NASA is no longer a space agency, it is a Muslim Outreach Agency, and the FBI is no longer a crime fighting agency, it is now another spy organization. All of this has happened with nary a peep from our supposedly independent free press.

Don’t take this as a defense of Chris Christie, we’ll get to him soon enough. I just wanted to highlight the collective insanity of our nation, so easily manipulated by the hypocrites feeding us our news. While Chris Christie’s possible, and by the way no where near even connected to it yet, behavior of purposefully slowing down traffic in the jurisdiction of a political foe may rise to the level of creepy, it pales in comparison to the malevolence of the man who should be the most accountable person in our nation. Nobody died because of Richard Nixon’s crimes, which by the way wouldn’t even register as noticeable in today’s world. Barack Obama’s foray into felonious behavior can be directly linked to at least six deaths, all of whom died solely for his political convenience.

Here is why I will not vote for Chris Christie. This particular photograph is from the Sunday prior to the 2012 Election. Bear in mind, before you say what’s wrong with him looking out for his state and his constituents, that the Governor of New York, who experienced the very same hurricane, had the good sense to tell the President, don’t come. “We don’t need the hassle of a Presidential visit on top of all of the other problems that we’re experiencing right now.” I have no time for a turn cloak who purposefully sabotaged the efforts of someone who befriended him and actually gave him a keynote position in his nominating Suarez.

While I applaud Chris Christie’s effort and success in taking on the corrupt and powerful public unions of his state, he is no conservative. His positions on the Second Amendment are something that I would hate to see in the White House. He is a big government nanny state Republican, with the same exact Northern Liberal cred as we’ve seen all to much of recently from the party purportedly on the political right. He will oppose the bulk of the free market principles that are so vitally important to the future success of our nation, (this by the way is my personal pet issue.) He will oppose free trade, and turn the other way in terms of preventing illegal immigration. (Notice those of you about to explode, I emboldened the word illegal, as in legal immigration is something that I believe we should encourage.)

Once again, the Trifecta crew gets it right. Give a listen if you’d like.

    As long as the primary election system remains broken all we are going to get for candidates are more losers and worse. Open primaries, same day voter registration, and vote fraud are destroying this Country.

    Ben Franklin was right, too bad we couldn’t hold on to the Republic…

    His positions on the Second Amendment are something that I would hate to see in the White House.

    That right there is why I will vote against Chris Christie in the primary, and will not vote for him if he is our nominee. He has, frankly, the worst position on the Second Amendment of any o the possible contenders, including Hillary Clinton. Quite bluntly, he just doesn’t see why the Bill of Rights should restrict government power. It isn’t just on the Second Amendment. He is, in truth, not to terribly pleased with the Republic from its foundations on. If the Second Amendment doesn’t limit the power of the State, why does the First? We know from Christie’s acts regarding Islam that he doesn’t really feel the First Amendment restricts State Power either. If we are going to have a Statist in power, I don’t see where having an R behind his name instead of a D is any particular improvement.

    Related aside:

    The Ohio turnpike has less construction, but the speed limit is 70 and then drops down to 50 in the “(not)Work Area.”

    not as bad as getting a ticket in PA, where if you miss the sign you only drop from 65 to 55.

    From he How the hell did they do that department:

    It may not be a crime, but leaving a rifle behind in a rental car could be dangerous.

    Lauren Tannehill, wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, turned in a rental car, but forgot to remove an AR-15 rifle from the back seat.

    The weapon was found by the next rental customer, a woman from New York, who turned it into police.

    “This is certainly the kind of item you don’t want to forget anywhere, but forgetting isn’t a crime,” said Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion.

    According to a BSO report, Lauren Tannehill, 26, rented a Nissan Rogue from E-Z Rent-A-Car on Jan. 4. She had the vehicle for about two hours, then turned it in for another.

    That same day, Judith Fleissig, 58, of Rochester, N.Y., rented the same Rogue. She later found the gun, valued at $2,000, secured in its case in the back seat, according to the report.

    Fleissig told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the seats were folded down when she picked up the SUV, and she didn’t look in the back until two days later.

    When she and her daughter saw the bag, they looked for an ID. They found the gun.

    Her daughter unzipped the bag and said, “ ‘Oh my God, it’s a gun.’ I said, ‘I think I’m going to throw up,’ ” Fleissig told the paper.

    And they happened to be uber-liberals who found it. I can see forgetting your cell phone, or even a laptop, but forgetting a rifle is something special. OTOH, how often do we hear about cops forgetting things like this, even machineguns and such. Nobody was hurt in this incident, and nobody was likely to be hurt. It doesn’t sound like the weapon was loaded or anything. You have to love the ‘I think I’m going to throw up,” line. That is so how Liberals are. Guns scare them, so they should be outlawed.

    Save it to drafts. You can then go into the editor and mark it for scheduling. Rodan or Coldwarrior will have to schedule it, though, unless you want it to be a headline. If you want a headline, uncheck all of the tags in the list control to the right of the post, and check headlines. It should publish immediately if it is a headline.

    Another reason not to vote for Christie:

    More bad news for Gov. Chris Christie: New Jersey is dead last in the nation in terms of its fiscal solvency, according to a new report.

    The study, released this week by the free-market Mercatus Center at George Mason University, ranked each state’s financial health based on a variety of measures, such as cash on hand to pay its current bills, budget surpluses or deficits, unfunded liabilities and ability to provide adequate public services.

    The Mercatus study used 2012 data.

    New Jersey came in last on two of those measures — budget and long-term solvency — and finished in the bottom 15 in two others.

    The state’s per-capita budget deficit, for example, was $727 in 2012, worst in the nation. On average, states were running a per-capita surplus of $364.

    Remind me again of why we are supposed to think of Christie as a “conservative”? Because he is neither a fiscal conservative (as this shows) nor a social conservative.

    Apparently. He is, I believe, moderately pro-life. I guess if you don’tquite march in lockstep with the entire Leftist agenda you qualify as a “conservative” to the media. Christie is a Liberal Republican, period. Maybe he is the best that you can expect out of New Jersey, but that is more a condemnation of New Jersey than it is an endorsement of Christie.

    @ coldwarrior:

    I think that is one of the reasons the media-Leftist complex is pushing him. They know that if Christie was to be elected he’d be on the same side of the issue with them about 90% of the time. If Christie is the nominee, we really can’t win in 2016. It doesn’t matter if the Rs win, because they will be running a Liberal, same as the Democrats.

  21. 21 | January 16, 2014 9:20 am

    @ Rodan:

    He’s pro-gun control, which blows his “social conservative” cred out of the water. And while he may be personally opposed to gay marriage, didn’t he just recently drop litigation on that very issue? Either way, that doesn’t outweigh his negatives. The only thing Christie has going for him is that he was willing to take on the unions, but even there he didn’t do all that much. Scott Walker beats him in that area, for sure, and Walker doesn’t have any of Christie’s negatives. We also know how Walker would handle being challenged (and demonized) by the Press and the Left. He’s already faced that and won in the recall election. If there was dirt on Scott Walker, it would have already been national news.

    @ coldwarrior:

    Until the next scandal. Obama gets away with what he gets away with because of the complicity of the media. If Obama were a Republican (even a black Republican) the press would eat him alive with his scandals. Christie isn’t going to have that going for him. They’ll keep hammering him for things that they’d never even notice if he was a Democrat. The press itself will be like an ad campaign to demonize him. They’ll do to him what Obama did to Romney over the summer of 2012. One thing that we can hope for is that Christie attracts all the attention, and takes all the shots, while we bring someone else up. The press will successfully defeat Christie, but Christie won’t be our candidate. They’d then have to start the demonization drumbeat over again.

    When have they ever told the truth? If the Left had something on Walker, they’d have used it in the recall election. In a heartbeat. And if there were anything to find, the NSA would have already found it and passed it on to the Democrats. That doesn’t mean they won’t make something up. Harry Reid made up the calumny that Romney hadn’t paid income taxes for a year. That was a complete fabrication, but it took its toll on Romney as a candidate. They could make up something equally “damning” on Walker, and they could rely on the press to push the issue.

    I think that his brusque manner accounts for much of Republicans’ initial infatuation, there’s a real thirst out there for someone to speak up. Let’s face it, many rank-and-file Republicans judge books by their covers as much as rank-and-file Democrats.

    That is what I think. They used all their ammo, and he beat them. If the Republican Mandarins were serious about winning, they’d be calling for Walker to be the nominee, not Christie. But Walker is a real conservative, and the Party Mandarins would rather have a Democrat in office than a real conservative. We are going to see in this year’s election something about the chances we have for 2016. Walker has to win re-election again this year. If he does that, it is hard not to see him as a front-runner. He doesn’t have the name recognition Christie has, but that is a matter for campaigning.

    I know that, but you do know that Christie is on record saying that the Bill of Rights doesn’t apply to his State, don’t you? I am not going to vote for a wannabe dictator, no matter what letter comes behind his or her name. It is really too late for Christie to have a “Come to Jesus” moment and decide that the Bill of Rights really does matter. Christie won’t be appreciably different than Hillary. He’ll still support the “Arab Spring”, he’ll still kowtow to Iran, he will still weaken the military. And he’ll tell us to shut up about it because he is the President. There’s only so much the President can do. On everything that is important, I don’t see where Christie is any improvement over Hillary. Sure, she is bottom of the barrel, but Christie is the worst the Republicans have to offer.

    coin, by its very nature, assumes that you can win the hearts and minds of a hostile population and through that, build a friendly nation behind it. it assumes that there are muzz who think that you are just dandy if you treat them not like a conquered enemy, but as a partner. you build them roads and schools and hospitals and give them billions of dollars. they then take all of that and make a sharia-law openly hostile state to you.

    coin refuses to see islam as a negative force in the world and as an enemy of western civ. the entire basis of coin is flawed in thinking that the muzz can be our buddies. we follow this at the cost of everything else and burn our treaures and blood for what? so we can be friends with muzz.

    this makes the muzz our equal on the ground, something they see a s a huge weakness and then they capitalize on that. our leaders, especially in the pentagon have become more political officers than warriors. career matters more than wining the war.

    Live Free and High: New Hampshire House Votes to Legalize Pot

    Gov. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., says she opposes making her state the first on the East Coast to legalize weed.

    “I don’t support the decriminalization of marijuana any further, and I would veto it if it comes to my desk,” Hassan told WMUR-TV on Monday. A two-thirds vote in the both New Hampshire’s House and Senate is needed to overturn the promised veto.

    [....]

    HB 492 sponsor Rep. Steve Vaillancourt, a Republican, gave an impassioned speech Wednesday saying the time had come for legislators to embrace the public opinion pivot.

    “Just as we would no longer say women have to go back in the kitchen or gays have to go back in the closet, we recognize that times have changed,” Vaillancourt said. “We are no longer slaves to our misguided past.”

    The GOP should do this nationwide. Make the Dems look like scolds.

    Frome and interview on Hannity’s show:

    Christie: We have a densely populated state and there’s a big handgun problem in New Jersey. Now, I don’t support all the things that the governor supports, by a long stretch. But on certain gun control issues, looking at it from a law enforcement perspective, seeing how many police officers were killed — we have an illegal gun problem in New Jersey.
    Hannity: Should every citizen in your state be allowed to get a licensed weapon if they want one?
    Christie: In New Jersey, that’s not going to happen, Sean.
    Hannity: Why?
    Christie: Listen, with the Democratic Legislature that we have, there is no way those type of things -
    Hannity: Would you support it.”
    Christie: Listen, at the end of the day, what I support are common sense laws that will allow people to protect themselves. But I also am very concerned about the safety of our police officers on the streets. Very concerned. And I want to make sure that we don’t have an abundance of guns out there.

    You never know. Alot of Republican voters love his rhetoric. He did come in 2nd to Romney.

    So stipulated, but I don’t think the GOP electorate is moving toward Social Conservatism as espoused by Santorum or Huckabee, that’s not the crux of the argument (insomuch as there IS an argument). I’ll not presume to predict what will be on the front burner come 2016, but I’ll go out on a limb and say that FisCons and people of a more “libertarian” (read: liberty) bent will be of far more interest than SoCons of the Santorum or Huckabee stripe.

    I think “pious” will be OUT and overall “managerial competence” will be IN. That, and the “Law of the Pendulum” looks favorable.

    My apologies if this has already been posted. There are complaints that Muslims are being targeted for counter terrorism purposes & Hispanics for immigration violations. And the problem is?

    Just saw on Fox News: There are fewer coal miners employed now than at any time since the 1920s.

    I wonder what the administration’s position on coal would be if Kentucky and West Virginia were blue states and Pennsylvania didn’t have Pittsburgh and Philadelphia to negate “coal country” votes?


  133. 135 | January 16, 2014 11:31 am

    Aside from Louisville, Kentucky is a poor state and Obama is doing his damnedest to make us poorer. Pardon my language, but FUCK HIM!


  134. 136 | January 16, 2014 11:33 am

    @ RIX:

    When it comes to Immigration, Hispanics are not the only one coming here illegally. I get we are the evil bad guys according like it was the 1500′s again to many people. But if you are going to profile Hispanics, you have to focus on Central American/Mexican Meso-American types who are the bulk of illegal Hispanics. SO some profiling is needed, but do it right.

    As for not profiling the Muzz, when have we ever profiled them?

    I was just making a larger point that sometimes you do have to profile. Ethnicity, race and religion are legit factors in profiling depending on the crime.

    I just heard a stat that 95% of all suicide bombers are Muslim(Who are the other 5%?)
    To ignore religion is lunacy, it is Islam that drives them.
    When was the last Methodist suicide bomber?

    If it is Christie v. Hillary for example, he can say, ‘Hey look, I held press conferences, answered questions, and fired people. My opponent won’t even tell you where she was while her ambassador was being murdered.’

    The rumor that Obama is a switch hitter has been out there for some time.
    A Illinois State Senator told me that it was common for Obama to disappear after lunch & it was assumed that he was shacked up.

    1969 Cubs 38 year old Ernie Banks 23 HR’s 116 RBI’s. Not bad – granted he played in Wrigley Field but not bad for that age.

    Ernie was a magnificent ballplayer. He was a natural hitter & when he was young, an outstanding shortstop.
    And I am in no way a Cubs fan, but fair is fair.

    They didn’t make the suicide bomb their primary offensive weapon, either. War is a risky business, and anyone who participates in war takes some risks, but almost nobody besides the Muslims sets out to die. The Japanese tried that with the Kamikaze, but they weren’t very successful with it.
