christie wants a judge

 

New Jersey is broke. That fact is not in dispute.

But greedy public employee unionistas sued to force Governor Chris Christie into fully funding their gold-plated pension system. And an activist judge said “yes.”

In a significant blow to Gov. Chris Christie, a judge ruled today that the governor broke a law he signed by cutting $1.57 billion from a pension payment this year, and must now work with state lawmakers to restore the money.

Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson sided with a group of public worker unions who sued to stop Christie from slashing the payment to New Jersey’s retirement fund for hundreds of thousands of government workers after his administration’s revenue projections fell far short and left a gaping hole in the spending plan that began last July 1.

The decision could blow a massive hole in the current state budget, sending the Republican governor and the Democratic-controlled state Legislature scrambling to come up with the funds by June 30, when the fiscal year ends.

State Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald said today he doesn’t know where they would find $1.57 billion in this year’s $32.5 billion budget and warned it would take “draconian” cuts to accomplish.

“The impact on programs at the end of the year would be devastating,” Greenwald (D-Camden) said.

Be careful what you wish for, you might get it.

The only way to fully fund the bloated pension system’s overly generous benefits is to cut discretionary spending.

So Governor Christie, cut. And then cut some more.

Decimate every sacred cow near and dear to New Jersey’s libtards; cut state aid to education, slash municipal assistance, refuse to spare Medicare, and layoff legions of unnecessary unionistas.

Hit ’em where it hurts.

The retirees get their bloated pensions, but everybody under 40 gets screwed. Let’s see how long that equation remains viable.

I give it 15 minutes.

Then the folks who still have jobs will decide to cut their losses and let the “biological solution” take care of the grumpy grifters.

Or not. In the end it doesn’t matter who gets screwed, so long as it’s not us taxpayers.

Chris Christie wants to be president. Ergo, he won’t raise taxes to satiate the pension behemoth. So whatever constituency does get hosed, I’ll be the guy over there laughing in the corner.

He’s got a whopping 46% of the vote!

It’s not even close. You can check real time results (and vote) here.

Via Breitbart:

With all the caveats about this being a non-scientific online poll, it has to mean something that Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker is murdering every other GOP contender by massive margins among those Drudge readers motivated enough to vote.

Although voting continues, as of this writing nearly 70,000 total votes have been cast. Walker captured a whopping 45% of them, 31,211 votes. Texas Senator Ted Cruz is in second place with 15%, 10,054 votes. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is in third with 13%, 9297 votes.

Scott Walker And The Art Of Winning

Share

Scott Walker 002

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has been flying under the national radar, so to speak. What he’s accomplished in Wisconsin, a deep blue, Union state, is nothing short of amazing. If they made a movie of his election win, then his win against a recall, and re-election where he keeps getting more and more votes, then no one would buy it. The critics would say it’s too “Pollyanna,” that the “feel good ending” was just not believable enough.

But real life sometimes doesn’t imitate art, because that is just exactly what happened to Gov. Walker and he’s beginning to gain some momentum on the national political stage, thanks to his awesome speech at the recent Freedom Summit in Iowa, hosted by Rep. Steve King.

Via The Week:

General Patton famously declared that “Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser.” He was right. And as we look to the 2016 presidential race, I think Taegan Goddard put his finger on something very true with this tweet:

 

In American politics, winning often isn’t enough. You have to win on your own terms, too.

Conservatives have very obviously had enough of politicians who cave. That hold-the-line, never-give-in attitude has burned at the heart of the Tea Party for years. Less noticed, but equally important, is the fact that we have plenty of conservative lawmakers whose reputations are built on their adherence to principle, their total commitment to never cave — and who inevitably lose. They may make excuses and point fingers to try and claim that losing is winning — but they are still losers.

Does Gov. Walker have what it takes to emerge onto the national political stage? It’s a vicious arena not for the faint of heart, but rest assured, he has been tempered in not just one, but a series of trials by fire.

The coming months are going to be nothing, if not entertaining.

Union Thug to Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan, “We’ll be at your daughter’s soccer game”

Share

union thug

My theme for the week here, so it seems, is that if you leave leftists to their own devices long enough, that they’ll show their true nature.  That happened again in Michigan, where a speaker at a public event said (reading between the lines), “that’s a nice daughter you have there. It’d be a shame if something would happen to her.”

Here is the video…

Remember kids, this is how the left operates.  They want what they want, and if anyone stands in their way, they will be subjected to threats, attacks, intimidation, and harassment.  They aren’t above threatening children, or families, or disrupting Church, because even God takes a back seat to the temper tantrums of the petulant left.  And, this particular protest is meant to restore the union’s ability to force workers to join, and more importantly, to make paying union dues a condition of employment.  It’s about the power to force workers to play and pay along.  And, if they have to threaten children, harass public officials, disrupt church, or beat people up and destroy minority businesses to get the job done, so be it.
