Bounty Placed On Chris Christie’s Head





Staff Annoucement

The media gets under my skin. They trumpet and boast about honesty and truth; but in reality, they’re about as dishonest as the politicians.

Compare, for instance, the way they’ve handled Obama’s scandals to Chris Christie’s latest debacle.

The latter, “Bridge-gate,” has given Big Media a scandal they can really sink their teeth into. Bridge-gate is being blasted from coast to coast in above-the-fold banner headlines.

The coverage on cable TV and even the network news shows is so detailed, it’s nauseating. (And I say that as a seasoned critic of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, the media’s primary target.)

In fact, according to a report from the Media Research Center, Bridge-gate has received approximately 17 times more coverage in one day than the Obama IRS scandal received in months.

RINO on the Loose!

Bridge-gate centers on allegations that, during the month of September 2013, Governor Christie’s staff encouraged the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to close several lanes of the George Washington Bridge leading out of Ft. Lee, N.J.

Now, as I said above, I’m no fan of Christie. There are plenty of reasons to dislike him, including his status as the darling of a GOP establishment that’s betrayed the American middle class time and time again. They want Christie as the GOP candidate precisely because they know he won’t change things in D.C.

Additionally, he’s a RINO (Republican in Name Only) who helped Barack Obama win the last presidential election by locking arms in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Christie was at Obama’s side during a critical news cycle, and Obama’s support soared during the run-up to the presidential balloting.

Christie has also been a critic of Congressional and Tea Party initiatives to reign in out-of-control government spending and growth, which are initiatives close to my heart.

But Christie did exactly what should be done when a scandal erupts. He’s disclosed all that he knows, apologized, and fired the offending aides for lying to him. He labeled the incident as “stupid” and “deceitful.” He denied any knowledge of it, and he took responsibility for falling short.

Additionally, Christie announced that he asked Bill Stepien to withdraw his nomination to lead the New Jersey Republican Party. He also asked Stepien to resign his consultancy with the Republican Governors Association, which Christie runs.

Finally, during Governor Christie’s 107-minute news conference, he was honest and contrite. I’ve never seen Obama be contrite about anything.

The Obama-Friendly Media

In fact, in dealing with his own scandals, Obama has done the complete opposite of Christie at every juncture. And the president has a list of scandals that are much more serious than Bridge-gate.

Sadly, the media has continually whitewashed and pooh-poohed Obama’s crimes.

Take the Benghazi cover-up, which was followed with an intense media barrage to convince America that our Libyan ambassador was murdered over a Youtube.com video. Meanwhile, the source of most of the lies, Susan Rice, was given a big promotion for her spin doctoring.

With Fast and Furious, the scandal in which the U.S. Department of Justice put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, well… nothing has happened. Attorney General Eric Holder lied about his involvement, yet he still has a job. I guess the repeated calls for his removal fell on deaf ears.

So when it comes to Christie’s scandal, the media is showing its true colors. It will happily go to bat for Obama but won’t pull any punches for the Governor of New Jersey.

Personally, I won’t lose any sleep if Christie’s political career ends here in a traffic jam on the roads to New York City.

I just wish the news media would be honest enough to hold Obama to the same standards.

      Here is Buckwheat’s, aka Barry Soetoro’s, last poem soon to be published on the Rockland Prison Poetry website:

      Dark and lonely on a bridge at midnight.
      I command to Kill the fat white man. Kill the fat white man.

      The watchdog media barking, do they bite?
      I command to Kill the fat white man. Kill the fat white man.

      C-I-L-L the fat white man!

    The standard rule for handling bad news in politics is to get it all out at once, like Christie did. The worst thing to do is allow the bad news to dribble out, for days, weeks, months, years, presidential terms? This is what Obliar has done for over a decade of controversies and scandals, so far, it’s worked like a charm, because of the lying MSM and that Americans have the attention span of a baby gnat. So, why should Obtraitor change? Delay it, Derail it, Ignore it. Dismiss it. Dissemble it to death. Didn’t know about it. Point at others. Have others point at others. Have others suggest the criticism is really racial. Stay aloof. Stretch the whole thing out as long as possible. Then call every ensuing question old news, that you’ve discussed it many times, or that it is just a phony scandal. Hope the problem goes away. And it usually has for Oblivious. Based on the history of such an immoral man, we will never get the answer unless Obackstabber is water-boarded or some honest people that are not under polygraph tests come forward, like Gates, but then their lives are destroyed by Obama Chicago style politics. Just ask Ham or Roberts, who are being blackmailed. Or ask Breitbart, who was going to properly vet Obhustler before the 2012 election, and what did he get, death!
    Now we have the scenario of what will he do with the ongoing Obamacarelessjobkiller debacle and his sinking polls. Obigbrother will halt all coverage using MSM lapdogs, report only on evil Republicans and idiot Tea Party terrorists. Lie about insurance policies and doctors that wont be kept, break promises to reduce costs (to the price of a phone bill), and just lie more and more. Then, blame shift and accuse everyone of intentionally causing trouble. Now announce a new program to force youth to buy health insurance that now threats to consume him. Soros-funded operatives will help demonize the Tea Party, and revive of the War on Women, along with efforts to worsen race relations by encouraging tensions to violence and riots in the streets. Obama (after just taking another multi-million dollar vacation) will demonize the super rich on the Right. The tactics will involve the usual: accusations of racism, corporate greed, narrow self-interest to the exclusion of the poor and dispossessed, condemnations of senators and representatives accused of being corporate shills, accusations that Republicans and Tea Party individuals only want to destroy Obama because they are so filled with hate and racism, accusations the Republicans hate the poor and don’t have a plan of their own, Fox will be singled out for special treatment, and doctors will become the new whipping post as well as other players in the healthcare industry. The banner: Hope & Change is still alive, follow the Fearless Leader: do not let the criminal rich rob the poor again! The ultimate question: will the American people walk into this grisly trap again?
