Just the other day my son and I were stuck for several long hours on the George Washington Bridge due to a plane landing on the north lanes causing this shutdown. But during the previous election, it appears that the appointees to the Port Authority which runs all the bridges, toll tunnels and other transport systems including the World Trade Center, conspired with Governor Christie to punish the mayor of Fort Lee by shutting off his town’s access and egress with a pretend ‘Homeland Security’ study.
Back when my son and I were stuck on the bridge, we discussed yet another Homeland Security stoppage as the cause. On the radio, this was even mentioned. Now we know that the previous event was pure malice aimed at hurting everyone in New York City and New Jersey by strangling traffic. This caused many health problems from pollution, one person died in a stuck ambulance, it lasted for nearly a week, people were late to appointments or work, children on both sides of the Hudson River couldn’t get to school easily and in general, life was severely degraded by more than several million people…all so Christie could punish someone for not endorsing him!
The emails that the Freedom of Information Act provided to us shows clearly these goons were gloating over how many people would suffer, lose money, get sick, children endangered, they thought this was all a neat trick to play on millions of people who they view as so many ants to be crushed. Update: Christie says he was misled by staff member; emails link top aide to GWB mess – NorthJersey.com: Christie is pulling the ‘I don’t know what my closest friends and drinking buddies did while they hung out with me!’ which is how leaders are supposed to act: like loser.
This leader who leads is, like Nixon and others, suddenly not a leader when everyone goes off the rails. As if his followers and close, close friends would do this very massive, public hissy fit display without him knowing about it. He certainly saw it in the news the first day because it grossly disrupted traffic in a major metropolitan exchange! It was hard to miss. Far from going forth from his Man Cave to discover what was wrong, he sat on his ass and laughed.
Here are the actual emails: http://dng.northjersey.com/media_server/tr/2014/01/09gwb/port_authority_2014.pdf
David Wildstein, a Jewish buddy from school days, writes, ‘Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee’. Another buddy boy writes, ‘For a whole week?’ The appointee to the Port Authority replies, ‘I’ll see what can be done’. These statements are grounds for criminal charges. This is gangsterism. ’Local Fort Lee traffic a disaster,’ sneers one aid as they rejoice in how horrible things became.
Then comes an email pleading for help from Fort Lee: ’Presently we have four very busy traffic lanes merging into only one toll booth…the bigger problem is getting kids to school. Help please. It’s maddening.’ The conspirators creating this mess send each other emails, one saying, ‘Is it wrong that I am smiling?’
Another laugh riot Christie aid sneers, ‘I feel badly about the kids…I GUESS. They are children of Buono voters (Democrats)’. This illustrates the ‘we love fetuses’ party. They really do hate children who are actually alive.”
Minutes later, one of the conspirators writes about how reporters are flooding the lines and some are yelling that this is a conspiracy to harm the people of Fort Lee. ’Give me instructions!’ says one criminal Christie dude. ’I am having a tough time with the reporters.’
At this point, the New York Port Authority supervisor steps in to order the bridge reopened and then began a barrage of emails to the New Jersey crooks to find out who did what and why. This sets the gang all in a tizzy as they struggle to dig themselves out of the mountain of shit they produced.
Briefly, these GOP goons backslap each other, Wildstein, the Governor’s oldest friend, says, ‘I only texted Bridget and Nicole (telling them about this nasty trick) and they were VERY happy.’ After this mess, Governor Christie issues a statement praising these clowns saying they gave great service to the people of New Jersey and the region.
Now these aids have resigned by Christie is still very large and at large and he bulks big in this scandal and has only issued a very brief, blunt, blundering statement similar to Nixon’s denials about Watergate. Reading NJ newspapers tonight, I see virtually no support for this monster and I suspect he may resign rather than be arrested. Make a deal, as usual. Like Nixon.
