2016 PRESIDENTIAL IMPLICATIONS ABOUND …

|| By FITSNEWS || Former New Jersey attorney general David Samson – forced from his job as chairman of the powerful Port Authority of New York and New Jersey last spring – is in hot water again.

Who is Samson?  He’s the guy who paid for New Jersey governor Chris Christie‘s infamous 2014 “Bridge-gate” scandal with his job.  And he’s now the subject of a new line of inquiry that could lead back to the Palmetto State … in more ways than one.

Specifically, prosecutors want to know how a flight route initiated by United Airlines is connected to what has become a “sprawling federal investigation” of Samson, Christie and the Port Authority.

Why do we care?

Well, the flight route in question was from Newark to South Carolina’s own Columbia Metropolitan Airport, which according to NorthJersey.com is “about 50 miles from a home where Samson often spent weekends with his wife.”

Whoa …

“United halted the non-stop route on April 1 of last year, just three days after Samson resigned under a cloud,” the website reported.

Ruh-roh …

Why does this matter?  Because according to the NorthJersey.com report the airline was “in regular negotiations with the Port Authority and the Christie administration during Samson’s tenure over issues that included expansion of the airline’s service to Atlantic City and the extension of the PATH train to Newark Liberty.”

Again … ruh-roh.

Christie has been making numerous trips to early-voting South Carolina as his 2016 presidential campaign – which inexplicably survived the bridge scandal – warms up.  In fact Christie was an invited guest at S.C. governor Nikki Haley‘s second inauguration last month.

Haley, incidentally, was one of Christie’s staunchest defenders during his “Bridge-gate” scandal … and sources familiar with her thinking tell FITS she has been eyeing a possible endorsement of Christie’s 2016 campaign in the run-up to the Palmetto State’s “First in the South” presidential primary next February.

In other words stay tuned … this scandal could get very interesting, very fast.

I’m sure the voters of SC will be running to the booths to elect Christie. Did I mention I’m stoned as hell right now?

Samson is such a moron. Aside from closing the bridge, not nailing Bridgette the hot aide, him and his wife, who can arm-twist United to open non-stop service to any cool location – decides to spend his time outside of – Columbia? Are you kidding me? This guy needs to be charged with Stupid.
Can we get the jobs report article now? I want to see Flip flip.

Monthly Unemployment went up….Real Unemployment rose to 11.3%..first time unemployment claims rose last week…
Gallup President says monthly unemployment number is a fraud and lie concocted by Obama administration and MSM…
You must be excited that more part-time, minimum wage SERVICE industry jobs were created and the average hourly wage went up .12..
You really are a fucking joke Rocky.

This is a South Carolina website and Fits hasn’t reported South Carolina”s employment for the last two months. (November, December) He is always harping on the “Worker participation rate”. Well while the nations has declined 0.2% in the last 5 months, South Carolina’s has improved 0.6%.
All the December numbers were improved. 7,243 more jobs. 2784 fewer unemployed. Unemployment declined by 0.2% to 6.5%.

Scandal hmmm…Anybody else make note that FITS is LOUDLY silent on the Brian Williams debacle…

These listless liberal MoFos – like FITS – will crucify a Conservative for non-offenses as if they’ve murdered another human being…

But let one of their pop culture gods get caught doing what we KNOW they regularity do…LIE, when TRUST is their main charge…and FITS plays coward on the level of Bill Clinton when the local whore-house records are posted…

Obama is costing the average SC family about $6,000 more a year ($36,000 over 6 years) in just energy and healtcare costs. And food inflation is through the roof. ..With incomes down by $5,000 per household under Obama and there are no jobs…

And I hope you have not tried to sell your house…because that’s another $40,000 loss under Obama.

And this Ignorant MoFo, FITS, is droning on, in excruciating (not-worth-reading) style, about some conspiracy theory involving a Liberal-tarian Republican’s henchman who is being investigated by the Obama FBI that has yet to answer for the IRS scandal or lying about Benghazi…

That’s FITS for you…LMAO…Head up your @$$, much….

I just heard an explanation of this on TV that took about 6 sentences, made infinitely more sense and provided way more to the point information than this epistle.
As Brian Williams has learned the hard way, running your mouth just to hear your voice/see your words in print doesn’t always accomplish what you want it to.
Maybe, fewer ruh-rohs…
But, yes, Trikki has cast her fate with a governor who is going to turn out to be one of the most corrupt politicians this country has ever seen. Christie started his political career with lies that put him on the losing side of a defamation case and he will end his political career on the losing side in courts.

WOW!!!…The irony…

I could not articulate who, and what, these people are any better than they do it themselves…

Democrats cannot get elected to statewide office in SC, because they are THIS F*#kin g stupid…
