NJ Gov. Christie Claims Cannabis Legalization is "Blood Money" (tags)
At a recent speech given in a drug treatment facility NJ Gov. Chris Christie claims that legalization is "blood money" when in fact the opposite is true.

Wisecracking Gov. Chris Christie; A Narcissist Politician Heading from NJ to DC (tags)
Recent endorsements of Gov. Chris Christie by corporate Democrat party boss Joe DiVincenzo shows that he is a member of the elite status quo of corrupt politicians trying to make himself look good with a "stronger than the storm" jingle while looking towards the U.S. Presidency as any media obsessed narcissist would. Maybe this time the lesser evil status of his opponent Barbara Bouno is more obvious as the corrupt party boss Dems like DiVincenzo endorse Christie!
Gov. Brown's peripheral canal increases salinity in delta (tags)
The peripheral canal/tunnel proposal by Gov. Jerry Brown would increase salinity in the delta by removing too much freshwater from the river. The entrance to the tunnel/canal is too far east and would remove freshwater from the Sacramento River without allowing it to enter the delta. Removal of fresh riverwater combined with increasing sea level as predicted by climate change spells doom for the delta.

National Victory? Local Defeats, Political Dynasties Consolidates. (tags)
BANTAY PILIPINAS correspondents and media news broke the sad news that political dynasties and hweteng lords defeated the good guys in the last elections. This while there was wide spread rejoicing over the national victory of the LP. Isabela Gov. Maria Gracia Cielo “Grace” Padaca and Pampanga Gov. Eddie “Among Ed” Panlilio—who both had to contend with politically entrenched families—were among the casualties in the country’s first automated national elections. This is the local level. Questioning her loss to Rep. Faustino Dy III in the gubernatorial race, Padaca on Friday said: “I weep for Isabela … Padaca, a crusader broadcaster was swept to power by the people's mandate.
EPCC: Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s last address- Lot of Hot Air (tags)
For the Echo Park Community Coalition, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s last address to the California legislature are just a lot of hot air. The governator’s call to “overhaul the funding system for state prisons and higher education, approve a jobs creation package and seek more money from Washington, even as he attacked the national healthcare plan”, is just another lip service for actor’s grandstanding before he exits.”

Gov. Schwarzenneger declares war on California workers (tags)
California's Gov. Schwarzenegger has launched a full-scale attack on state workers. Two public employee unions are suing California’s Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to stop a scheme imposing two unpaid days off per month as a cost-cutting measure. (Associated Press, Dec. 22, 2008) The state government is slashing health services and education programs.

Dems, Media Elite Overreacted to Gov. Sarah Palin (tags)
When John McCain picked Gov. Sarah Palin to be his VP running mate, most Americans yawned: “Sarah, Who?” Not the Democrats and the Media Elite. They tossed a first-class hissy fit. One of the worse offenders was the site, “HuffPost.” It even created a special page posting a lot ot negative rumors about the “working mom.” Meanwhile, GOP speakers, like the pro-Iraq War, pro-waterboarding Sen. Joe Lieberman, got off the hook with little criticism.
McCain- Palin campaign contradicted by statement & Gov. Palin's top aides duck hearing (tags)
"He's still bragging about it in my hometown and after another cop confessed to witnessing the kill, the trooper was 'investigated' for over a year and merely given a slap on the wrist," the e-mail said, according to the Post. That seems to contradict a background paper recently released by the McCain- Palin campaign that says the family never knew that Wooten had been disciplined, which is one reason Todd kept pressing the point.

O’Malley Hugs Olmert, While USS Liberty Is Forgotten (tags)
Annapolis, MD, on Nov. 27, 2007, was the backdrop for a propaganda ploy concerning the Mideast. Meanwhile, MD’s Gov. Martin O’Malley had lunch with Israel’s Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, but he failed to invite Palestine’s Mahmoud Abbas. Last summer, O’Malley cheerleaded the Israeli Defense Forces attack on Lebanon. It is highly likely that topics like: Occupied Gaza, Rachel Corrie or the USS Liberty, never came up at his meal with Olmert.
