  • New Jersey governor proposes flat rate for education funding

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday proposed overhauling the state’s education funding formula to provide all public school districts with a flat rate of $6,599 per student. Calling it his “Fairness Formula” in policy statements on Tuesday, Christie said aid for special needs students would continue even with any potential formula change. Schools are funded through property taxes, which in New Jersey are some of the highest in the nation because of the state’s “unaffordable and broken school funding formula propped up by special interests and misguided Supreme Court precedent,” Christie said in a statement. …

    The school board last night adopted a new policy that proponents hope will make the public schools more accommodating to transgender students. >>>>>>>The new policy requires the district to issue student ID cards in the name that reflects the student's gender identity; requires school staff to address students by the names and pronouns corresponding to their gender identity, even if the students have not obtained court-approved name changes; and allows students to dress in accordance with their gender identity. The policy also bans the district from forcing students to use restrooms or locker rooms that conflict with their gender identity....

    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie is upset about the attack on LGBT nightclub Pulse in Orlando. In response, he wants the U.S. to respond with military action overseas. “You’ve got to get over there and make them pay where they live,” Christie said yesterday on WFAN’s Boomer & Carton Show (yes, a sports talk show). He was filling in for Boomer Esiason. “It is unacceptable to allow this type of stuff in our country and for us to not fight back. We’ve got to fight back.” Christie is a top adviser to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and the head...

    New Jersey lawmakers on Thursday sent Gov. Chris Christie legislation to keep Atlantic City from running out of cash, throwing the financially strapped resort a life preserver just before the unofficial start to summer this weekend. The Democrat-led Assembly and state Senate approved the measures by wide margins just as the state’s 127 miles of beaches prepare for the Memorial Day holiday. Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who earlier supported legislation allowing for an immediate state takeover of the city’s finances, has said the bill gives him the authority he needs. He stopped short of saying whether he will sign the...

    The reconstruction of Sandy-battered Route 35 is soaking New Jersey taxpayers with tens of millions of dollars in cost overruns, an Asbury Park Press investigation reveals. The newspaper found that the project, announced by Gov. Chris Christie in 2013, is already $76 million over budget and a year behind schedule. The potential final cost of $341 million means that the 12.5-mile road construction in Ocean County will cost a jaw-dropping $27.3 million per mile — making it one of the most expensive road projects in the state. The Asbury Park Press, which called the project a “boondoggle,” found that the...

    TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie is "in his own private hell" over his February endorsement of GOP front-runner Donald Trump, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said Tuesday. Appearing on "The Glenn Beck Show," Cruz told the conservative host that Trump seemed to insist on behaving like the famous fictional Mafia don depicted in Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather," Michael Corleone. "The presidency should not be La Cosa Nostra," said Cruz, adding that the real estate tycoon seemed to demand a similar level of "Godfather"-like deference and respect from the governor. "You know what gets me," Cruz said. "The servility...

    Chris Christie is looming large behind the scenes of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, coaching him before the last GOP debate and lining up policy experts, donors and big-name backers, according to a report Friday. The New Jersey governor is far more than just a high-profile supporter and has become one of Trump’s most trusted advisers, reported. “Christie is clearly making the transition from endorser to enabler and positioning himself to be a major player in the Trump camp,” David Kennedy, a presidential historian, told Edward Newton, who vetted Christie when he was considered a possible running mate for...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Friday said Donald Trump was speaking figuratively when he predicted “riots” if the GOP blocks him from winning the presidential nomination. “I don’t think he meant literal riots,” Christie said during a press conference in New Jersey, according to The Wall Street Journal. "I think he meant political riots." Still, Christie, who has endorsed Trump and appeared with him at campaign rallies, predicted that a contested convention selecting the Republican nominee would generate outrage. “If someone goes in with the most delegates, the most votes, and then they are denied the nomination by...

    Chris Christie In an announcement that surprised almost everyone, Christie endorsed Trump in February. As Trump’s running mate, Christie could be an effective attack dog against Hillary Clinton. A Trump-Christie ticket would also reinforce the narrative that both men are tough Washington outsiders who “tell it like it is.” Rick Scott When he ran for Governor of Florida in 2010, Scott self-funded his campaign and spent upwards of $75 million of his own money. Scott, who recently called for his fellow Republicans to “coalesce behind” Trump, could help the New York billionaire in Florida -- a key swing state. Scott’s...

For example, last week, during a long stream of semi-consciousness in Fort Worth, this man who as president would nominate members of the federal judiciary vowed to “open up” libel laws to make it easier to sue — to intimidate and punish — people who write “negative” things. Well. Trump, the thin-skinned tough guy, resembles a campus crybaby who...

In a transparent attempt to make himself appealing to Latino voters without angering the anti-immigrant GOP base, Christie today created problems for both the primary and general elections in 2016.

    Today the political landscape just became infinitely more interesting.

At the most basic of level we must remember candidate Marco Rubio was never supposed to be the GOPe's standard bearer for the professional republican party. It simply was not his role. A single-term, 44-year-old, freshman senator, with a wife, four kids, no accumulated wealth and no executive experience, does not independently mount a long-shot bid to become the chief executive office holder...
