Bridget Anne Kelly fired by Chris Christie today over Bridgegate was his deputy Chief of Staff. While I don’t like Christie at all, and wouldn’t vote for him in 2016 if he was the GOP nominee, at least he fired someone. Obama on the other hand with his finding out about his scandals in the news never fired anyone. No one was fired over Benghazi. Lois Lerner, who lead the IRS blocking of conservative groups was never fired, got a long paid vacation, and then finally retired. Not even James Clapper was fired after he lied under oath to Congress (which used to be a federal crime.) Bridget Anne Kelly is the one who sent the e-mail calling for ‘some traffic problems’ in Fort Lee.
NBC New York:
“What I’ve seen today for the first time is unacceptable. I am outraged and deeply saddened to learn that not only was I misled by a member of my staff, but this completely inappropriate and unsanctioned conduct was made without my knowledge,” the Republican governor said in a prepared statement that has been described as “boilerplate.”
“One thing is clear: this type of behavior is unacceptable and I will not tolerate it because the people of New Jersey deserve better. This behavior is not representative of me or my Administration in any way, and people will be held responsible for their actions,” the statement added.
So tubby, which member of your staff ‘misled you?’ Your blanket statement doesn’t make it clear. Still, I love watching the media hypocrisy in ‘scandals’ though. Maybe Chris Christie should have told the media that he heard about Bridgegate for the first time today in the news, like Obama.
Poor Chris Christie. His pals in the leftists media have labeled his ‘scandal’ Bridgegate. It’s gotten so bad for fat boy that Bridgegate forced Christie to cancel a public event to pimp Sandy hurricane relief. Is Christie stunned his allies in the progressive liberal media have suddenly turned on him? If so, then he’s dumber than even I thought.
Gov. Christie just postponed his public event for today, a Sandy recovery-related news conference.

Chris Christie scandal – Bridget Anne Kelly suggested bridge closures to Port Authority as revenge for Dem mayor who didn’t endorse Christie
Chris Christie scandal According to reports, fat ass Christie’s deputy Chief of Staff suggested bridge closures to Port Authority as revenge for Democrat mayor Mark Sokolich who didn’t endorse Christie in last year’s New Jersey governor elections. Mark Sokolich refused to endorse CHristie last year, even though he won the state with over 60% of the vote in a far left cesspool like New Jersey. Almost seems as if New Jersey style politics aren’t much different than Chicago style.
Have fun getting yourself out of this one fatass. The media is back to hating you as they prepare for Hillary Clinton 2016, and Christie has pissed off enough conservatives to fit in his belly. Christie has no allies on the right or left to fight his battles for him.
Jeff Flake has officially become John McCain’s bastard son. Flakey Flake whined on Twitter about Robert Gates book exposing Obama and Biden for the frauds that they are.
Re Gates book. Extraordinarily bad timing, and form, if you ask me.
— Jeff Flake (@JeffFlake) January 8, 2014
People in Arizona aren’t stupid. How do they keep electing RINO frauds like McCain AND Flake. At least John Kyl was somewhat of a conservative. McCain and Flake don’t even try to be conservative and lick Obama’s ass whenever they get the chance.
In his new book, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates criticizes President Obama’s lack of commitment to U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, and also questions Vice President Biden’s foreign policy skills.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) questions the timing, calling the release of the book “extraordinarily bad timing, and form, if you ask me.” As it turns out, no one did ask him.
Arizona Republicans are set to vote this coming weekend on whether to censure RINO John McCain. Why? because of his “long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats.” While Arizona Republicans are considering censuring John McCain for sucking up to leftists, why don’t they do the same to Jeff Flake who is really not much different than McCain.
The names on this list of nine filthy Republicans contains the usual suspects like Susan Collins, John Songbird McCain and Orrin Hatch. But there are some others on this like like Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Rob Portman of Ohio who can kiss their future Senate ambitions away in 2016. Here are the names of the nine filthy Republicans who voted to strip away pensions for disabled military veterans and in favor of money for illegal immigrants:
Susan Collins (Maine)
John McCain (Arizona)
Orrin Hatch (Utah)
Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
Saxby Chambliss (Georgia)
Johnny Isakson (Georgia)
Rob Portman (Ohio)
Ron Johnson (Wisconsin)
John Hoeven (North Dakota)
Have fun running for re-election assholes. Collins will win next year because she’s in a leftist state like Maine who hate the military anyway. Saxby Chambliss is retiring and wouldn’t have to face the wrath of the voters. Portman, Johnson, McCain and Murkowski are all up for re-election in 2016. Songbird McCain and Orrin Hatch have until 2018.
The RINOs and Marxist Democrats in the House passed the ‘bi-partisan’ budget bill by a margin of 332-94. This means plenty of RINOs need to be primaried next year. The coward Weeper Boehner also passed a temporary farm bill. The Karl Rove Republicans need to be taught a lesson at the ballot box next year. There really is no difference anymore between the Karl Rove Republicans and the far left progressive liberal Democrats. 169 Republicans voted for this crap.

Here’s the full roll call vote, with the names of all 169 Republicans. List includes Weeper Bohnner, Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, Darrell Issa and Jason Chafetz. Boehner’s vote is especially a slap in the face the conservatives. Speakers of the House typically don’t vote unless the vote is close. This wasn’t anywhere near close and he voted anyway. Fuck you Weeper Boehner!
Aside from the fact that this raises spending and gets rid of sequester cuts, it also gives Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats the ‘nuclear’ option to raise taxes with just 51 votes in the Senate, instead of the usual 60. The 51 vote point of order rule was put in not by the Democrats, but by Paul Ryan, who like Boehner want to jam amnesty through next.
Paul Ryan budget gives Harry Reid authority to raise taxes with simple majority vote – voids point of order rule
The Paul Ryan budget deal that he cut with far left progressive liberal Democrats allows Harry Reid and the Senate to raise taxes with a simply majority vote (51 votes.) The provision voids the ‘point of order’ rule. Basically, Harry Reid and the Democrats can raise taxes whenever they choose. It’s like the nuclear option on judicial nominations, except this time it’s on taxes and a gift from Paul Ryan and the RINO caucus in the House. Man was I fooled by Paul Ryan. Turns out Mitt Romney is more of a conservative than the Wisconsin RINO fraud Paul Ryan.
Senate Republicans scrubbing the Ryan-Murray budget deal have come across a little-noticed provision that will limit the GOP’s ability to block tax increases in future years.
The bill includes language from the Senate Democrats’ budget that voids senators’ ability to raise a budget “point of order” against replacing the sequester cuts with tax increases.
The process is quite complicated, but in practice it grants Harry Reid the authority to send tax increases to the House with a bare majority, rather than the 60-vote threshold that would be required under a point of order.
The new budget deal that Paul Ryan and Patty Murray have been working on will get rid of some, if not all the sequester cuts that were agreed upon in 2011 and signed by Obama. I can’t say I’m surprised anymore. I was fooled into thinking Paul Ryan was a fiscal conservative. This proves he is just another big government Karl Rove Republican. Ryan is also pushing to pass amnesty.
Conservative Texas Rep. Steve Stockman with launch a primary campaign against Texas RINO Senator John Cornyn who is up for re-election next year. After all of John Cornyn’s backstabbing of Ted Cruz during the Obama shutdown, it looks like karma has finally caught up with the RINO.
One of Washington’s most reliably conservative lawmakers is breaking the news that he will challenge a mainstay of the Republican establishment – all because the incumbent GOP senator “undermined Sen. Ted Cruz’s fight to stop Obamacare.”
Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, told WND exclusively that he will run against against Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, in the state’s primary race. Cornyn is running for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2014.
With his campaign little more than an hour old, Stockman had already picked up some major support.
Jenny Beth Martin, president and co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, told WND, “Congressman Stockman has proven himself to be a fighter for freedom who votes in the House of Representatives based on constitutional principles. We need more senators who will do the same.”
Poor RINO Mitch McConnell he’s mad at the tea party and conservatives. He’s in for a tough primary battle against Matt Bevin, and tough re-election against a weak Democrat if he beats Bevin in the deep red state of Kentucky next year. Now poor turtle McConnell is whining that it’s time for the GOP Establishment aka RINOs to stand up to those bad ole Tea Party/Conservative bullies.
|Mitch McConnell: Time for GOP Establishment (RINOs) to ‘Stand Up to’ Tea Party|
McConnell argued it is “utter nonsense” for groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), which has endorsed his primary challenger businessman Matt Bevin, to argue that Republicans like him in Congress are not fighting hard enough to defeat Democrats. In the interview, McConnell focused on deriding Tea Partiers for leading the effort to defund Obamacare—something that, coupled with the Democrats’ refusal to compromise on the soon-to-fail Obamacare, resulted in a government shutdown.
“The Senate Conservatives Fund is giving conservatism a bad name,” McConnell told the Examiner for the piece titled “The Establishment Fights Back: Mitch McConnell leads GOP battle against Tea Party insurgents.”
“They’re [SCF] participating in ruining the [Republican] brand,” McConnell said. “What they do is mislead their donors into believing the reason that we can’t get as good an outcome as we’d like to get is not because of a Democratic Senate and a Democratic president, but because Republicans are insufficiently committed to the cause—which is utter nonsense.”
