The word is going out quietly to Republican activists across New Jersey: If you’re going to the GOP convention in Tampa next month, be sure to be there by Tuesday night, Aug. 28, because Gov. Chris Christie is going to be giving the keynote speech that night.
“We’ve been told that’s the night to be there, that’s when the governor is going to speak. They’re saying he’s the keynoter,” one top party activist told The Post yesterday.
I guess our “betters” in the Republican Party have decided on a theme for this year’s convention: Northeastern Liberals. Good luck with that!
I know the GOP Elite hate Conservatives, and are as tone deaf as humanly possible, but this is a serious WTF moment.
I know some “conservatives” think Chris Christie is all that, and Ann Coulter completely destroyed every shred of credibility she ever had by professing her love for this loud mouth bully, but actual Conservatives have Christie’s number.
While taking Coulter to task, Mark Levin points out Christie’s passive support of ObamaCare and refers to him as a “male Christine Todd Whitman,” not exactly a complement.
Christie is also an open borders, amnesty shill, a gun grabber, thinks “global warming” is real, and supports legislation to “fix” it, and is an all around liberal Republican. Oh sure, some get excited because he took on the corrupt teachers unions, and tried to reform their pension plans. And some people get cheap thrills because Christie is a classless bore who loves to yell at people, especially reporters. The same people who tell me that Sarah Palin is “shrill” and “polarizing” just lap this clown’s antics up.
Why is it I find more photos of these two idiots together than of Christie with actual Republicans?
Let’s get something straight, Christie took on the union thugs out of sheer desperation. New Jersey is broke. He really had no choice. It’s a simple matter of survival. That makes Christie marginally better than California’s Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown. But only marginally.
Sarah Palin reformed her state’s public employee’s pension system. She also slashed spending, reformed a corrupt government, and took on Big Oil. And she didn’t have a proverbial gun to her head like Christie does. No Sarah Palin was a budget hawk during good times, when Alaska was swimming in oil money, thanks to record high crude prices.
Sarah cut her own office’s expenses, spending over a million dollars a year less than the two previous governors, Frank Murkowski and Tony Knowles. She fired most of the staff at the Governor’s Mansion, including the executive chef, opting to do her own cooking. She put the useless jet Murkowski bought on eBay, [later selling it through a broker] drove herself to work, in her own car, and turned down a $25,000 a year raise that was offered to her by the Alaska legislature.
Alaska was swimming in oil money and the legislature was wanting to spend like drunken sailors. Sarah vetoed all of the nonsense, remembering good times never last forever. Instead she managed debt and liabilities, creating a $12 billion surplus, and ended up getting Alaska an upgrade on it’s credit rating to the highest level.
Christie did the right thing, for sure, but only because it was either that, or throw New Jersey into bankruptcy. I’d like to see what he’d do if he had a seemingly unlimited stream of money pouring in. I doubt he’d be as prudent.
This stuff isn’t my only problem with Christie though. There are plenty of loud mouth, obnoxious losers in this world. Can’t waste time being disgusted by them all. No I’m more concerned about his liberalism, and disregard for the rights of his citizens.
We noted in January of 2011 that Christie had cooked up a scheme to steal the private property of New Jersey citizens in order to feed the out of control government beast. In this scenario, right out of Soviet Russia [or communist Cuba] Christie would confiscate private citizen’s unused gift cards and travelers checks, just taking them and putting the money towards paying down debt. This is immoral and probably illegal, but Christie was all for it. Like any good liberal, Christie thinks government is all powerful and the people are merely there to serve government, not the other way around.
The real thing that troubles me about Christie though, and the thing that should disqualify him not only from speaking at the convention, but from ever being considered for anything other than Governor of New Jersey, is his deep ties to the terror group Hamas.
Back when Christie was still at the Justice Department, he intervened on behalf of confessed Hamas terrorist Mohammed Qatanani. Qatanani is a confessed member of Hamas,and the Muslim Brotherhood, which of course has ties to Al Qaeda.
Qatanani had widespread support in New Jersey, despite a record of condemning Christians to eternal hellfire and his attendance at numerous radical conferences in the United States.
For example, Qatanani spoke at the 1999 Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) conference in Chicago. The IAP served as a Hamas propaganda arm in the United States and was part of a secret Muslim Brotherhood committee assembled to help Hamas politically and financially.
One of the groups Qatanani was involved with provides funds to the children of suicide bombers, a recruitment incentive, if you will.
And yet, Chris Christie worked hard to stop ICE from deporting this terrorist.
That’s not all, as Governor, Christie nominated Qatanani’s attorney, Sohail Mohammed to be a New Jersey Superior Court Judge. Mohammed is a piece of work in his own right. He was an attorney for many GITMO terrorist detainees, and Mohammed has ties to the “Fort Dix Six” a group of Muslim terrorists who were plotting to kill “as many soldiers as possible.”
Oh, and Sohail Mohammed thinks Sharia Law should be part of the American justice system.
It goes without saying that Christie supports the Ground Zero Mosque.

Whether Sarah Palin speaks at the convention, or not, it’s an insult and an outrage that someone like Chris Christie would be given a platform there.
Here is a man that represents everything Conservatives are fighting against.
Here’s a man who not only consorts with know terrorists, he appoints people with deep ties to terrorism, and a want to subvert the justice system of the United States, to positions within the courts.
It’s completely unacceptable and a disgrace.
But it’s par for the course. It’s just one more instance of the brain dead GOP Elite clowns not giving a damn about anything but power.
