What does the future hold? The Amazing Chriswell tells me to watch for Sea Bright, Belmar e-mails and Sandy Money. And Remember My Friends-Future Events Such As These Will Effect YOU In The Future!

13. The air pollution monitor closest to the George Washington bridge shut off at the height of the Ft. Lee lane closures (a working monitor would have raised the alarm to the Department of Environmental Protection that the pollution levels were too high, probably triggering the re-opening of the Fort Lee lanes): http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2014/01/22/air-monitors-see-spike-in-pollution-during-bridgegate

14. The Christie administration has fired the contractor in charge of handing out Sandy relief money for the state -- without announcing it to the public: http://blog.nj.com/njv_editorial_page/2014/01/christie_officials_fire_sandy.html

Might as well add some more:

17: Slurping at the Harrison NJ trough - a $250M development deal has financial ties to Christie's bother Todd, as well as his Port Authority pal David Sampson (who voted for the project): http://www.northjersey.com/news/Governors_brother_invested_in_houses_near_new_PATH_station_in_Harrison.html

This is a big one (thanks Rocktivity & Highplainsdem!)

19: "Rockefeller Group, a real estate developer whose proposed office complex in Hoboken, N.J...has terminated its contract with the firm Wolff & Samson." But as long as the firm's founder David Sampson still has a job with the Port Authority, does it really matter? http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/31/nyregion/hoboken-site-developer-dismisses-law-firm.html

The hits just keep coming in! I'll keep adding them. There will be more. Hope this proves to be interesting reading.
(edited again because the hits just keep coming in!) And another thing!

23. The slimiest of his slimy moves. He lied on TV. got sued for defamation and had to print a full page apology in the local paper: Chris Christie’s 1994 ad was too tough (and inaccurate) for Jersey: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/chris-christies-1994-ad-was-too-tough-and-inaccurate-for-jersey/2014/01/19/b69f0d86-7ef8-11e3-93c1-0e888170b723_story.html

24. Christie administration staffer resigns amid lane closures probe. Christine Renna says good-bye to her gig at the Governor's Office.

27. Lawyers for Christie administration are seeking documents and a "private interview" from Hoboken mayor Dawn Zimmer. She has already given the documents to the Feds.

90. Its good to be friends with the governor! Port Authority was pressed by Christie administration to hire governor's former law firm, sources say: http://www.northjersey.com/news/port-authority-was-pressed-by-christie-administration-to-hire-governor-s-former-law-firm-sources-say-1.1047687

91. He's just a "stand-up" guy, isn't he? Chris Christie defends gun bill veto, declining to meet with Sandy Hook parents: http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/07/chris_christie_defends_gun_bill_veto_declining_to_meet_with_sandy_hook_parents.html#incart_river

92. The Sandy Recover Czar is jumping ship. Marc, we hardly knew ya! Christie Hurricane Sandy 'storm czar' Marc Ferzan to resign:http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/07/christies_storm_czar_mark_ferzan_to_resign.html

93. The American Dream Mall (formerly Xanadu) highlights the incestuous relationship between Christie, Samson and Lori Grifa, the Wolff & Samson lawyer/lobbyist who has played all sides of this project. Listen to Chris Christie and the American Dream Megamall https://www.wnyc.org/radio/#/ondemand/385992

94. Even a mouse knows what a liar Christie is! Chris Christie's bridge fiction: the Pulaski Skyway-Lincoln Tunnel claim debunked (Ledger Live video): http://www.nj.com/ledgerlive/index.ssf/2014/06/chris_christies_bridge_fiction_the_pulaski_skyway-lincoln_tunnel_claim_debunked_ledger_live_video.html#incart_river_default

95. Christie does a movie trailer! Christie posts then removes YouTube video mixing Hollywood with pension reform. But, thanks to Roctivity, we have a live link to this epic! Why did he take it down? Did The Rock threaten him?:http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/07/christie_spoofs_the_movies_to_tease_new_plans_for_pension_system.html (see reply # 235 for the video link)

96. Will item #100 announce indictments? I don't know, but this sounds ominous! Bridgegate Committee Can't Call Any More Major Witnesses I'm pretty sure its not because of their concern over the preemption of children's programing on NJTV: http://www.njspotlight.com/stories/14/07/15/bridgegate-committee-can-t-call-any-more-major-witnesses

Avert Your Eyes! Christie May Have Been Dancing... But Apparently Others Have Been Singing!

97. THIS should make any thinking person sick to their stomach-NJ Gov. Chris Christie's pension moves cost taxpayers and retirees billions $4 billion would have taken care of the pension shortfall! But NO-it's the public employees fault-disgusting.: http://www.ibtimes.com/gov-christie-shifted-pension-cash-wall-street-costing-new-jersey-taxpayers-38-billion-1667622

Follow up: When you look up the word disingenuous there should be a picture (granted taking up most of the page) of Christie: Christie Argues His Own Pension Law Is Unconstitutional: http://project.wnyc.org/christie/#latest-398752

98. Why govern when using your office to raise campaign cash is so much more lucrative! Inside Chris Christie's Permanent Campaign: http://www.njspotlight.com/stories/14/08/25/inside-chris-christie-s-permanent-campaign

99. You'll get nothing and like it! Commuters stuck because of tunnel constraints figure out that Christie nixed the additional tracks into NYC. Our idiot governor decides to argue with them on Twitter! Christie Tweet-Fights With NJ Transit Commuters: http://www.njspotlight.com/stories/14/08/14/christie-tweet-fights-with-nj-transit-commuters#

100. I was hoping # 100 would announce indictments but-we'll give it to Charles Pierce for a Crime Digest worthy summary of Christie's hypocrisy and failings- The Passion Of Big Chicken, The Fleecing : http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/Big_Chicken_Loses_Big

101. Now let me get this straight-out of all of your text messages, this is the one you deleted? Regina Egea's phone records subpoenaed to discover missing text to Christie. N.J. legislative panel to subpoena phone and email records between Chris Christie and Regina Egea : http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/08/29/1325647/-N-J-legislative-panel-to-subpoena-phone-and-email-records-between-Chris-Christie-and-Regina-Egea

102. The Port Authority cops knew something was amiss and were told to shut up about it. Port Authority cops told to 'shut up' about GWB lane closures, memo says : http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/09/port_authority_cops_told_to_shut_up_about_gwb_lane_closures_memo_says.html#incart_m-rpt-1

Plus-for those interested in source materials, read the memo here: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/1283440-papd-document.html

103. Christie Crime Digest put to shame! The Bergen Record has assembled a very compelling and visually appealing dossier on all things Bridgegate. A very nice compilation of materials for anyone looking for a way to make sense of this. The GWB Files: Christie and The World's Busiest Bridge: http://www.northjersey.com/news/the-gwb-files-christie-and-the-lane-closures-at-the-world-s-busiest-bridge-1.1080372

104. Christie and his family on the beach didn't just violate good taste-those ads also violated Federal procurement rules for Sandy money. Remember, Quod est in Loco! (For those who are new to this, that's Latin for "the fix is in" the Christie Administration Motto! 'Stronger Than the Storm': Federal audit finds N.J. did not fully comply with procurement rules: http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2014/09/stronger_than_the_storm_audit.html

105. Let's see, high unemployment-check, higher property taxes-check, state's bond rating lowered-AGAIN-check- Fitch downgrades N.J. debt, saying Christie is repudiating his pension reform:http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/09/fitch_downgrades_nj_debt_saying_christie_is_repudiating_his_pension_reform.html#incart_m-rpt-1

106. No money for pensions. No money for infrastructure. No money for schools. But we do have hundreds of millions for a casino-that failed: Chris Christie loses a big Atlantic City bet, posing another challenge for 2016 run-http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/chris-christie-loses-a-big-atlantic-city-bet-posting-another-challenge-for-2016-run/2014/09/05/d7471a7a-33b0-11e4-8f02-03c644b2d7d0_story.html

Bridget, do you think that pizza place on the boardwalk is still open? And by the way, did you take care of that THING in Fort Lee yet? You know that THING?

107. She don't know nuthin' 'bout nuthin'-Guadagno office subpoenaed on 'Hoboken issues' -Apparently this happened back in July- its funny how it all seemed to be very quiet over the summer :http://www.northjersey.com/news/nj-state-news/guadagno-office-subpoenaed-on-hoboken-issues-1.1081619

108. Hey Putin! I got Ukraine, right here I got it! A frightening take on Christie's potential approach to foreign policy from The New Republic ( I know, I saw Shattered Glass too) Chris Christie Wants to Arm Wrestle Vladimir Putin, Basically: http://www.newrepublic.com/article/119291/chris-christie-vladimir-putin-gaffe

109. Oh and by the way, today is Chris Christie's birthday and the Cake Boss wants to raise some money for the blowhard. NJ GOP gets fundraising solicitation from Cake Boss for Christie's birthday cake Let's make sure to send him some DU birthday best wishes!: http://www.politickernj.com/80496/nj-gop-gets-fundraising-solicitation-cake-boss-christies-birthday-cake

110. I'll bet that Christie is touched that she remembered! Debbie Wasserman Schultz visited our fair state to commemorate the one year anniversary of the GWB lane closures. Debbie Wasserman Schultz rips Chris Christie over Bridgegate :http://www.politico.com/story/2014/09/debbie-wasserman-schultz-bridgegate-chris-christie-110701.html

111. Just what DOES Billy Baloney Baroni know and who is the *%&$er he was being urged to "turn in" ? GWB probe: New email exchange raises more questions : http://www.northjersey.com/news/gwb-probe-new-email-exchange-raises-more-questions-1.1083499

112. Well Mr. Christie, we've established what kind of person you are, now we're just negotiating price. And I guess a $130,000 contribution to the RGA gets you something these days. Stile: Christie’s smoking-ban veto is noticed beyond N.J.: http://www.northjersey.com/news/stile-christie-s-smoking-ban-veto-is-noticed-beyond-n-j-1.1086413

113. When Christie said NJ was "open for business" most people didn't think that meant everything was for sale. Apparently that is what he meant: N.J. sells controversial pension investment in fund tied to Massachusetts Republican candidate, report says: http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/09/nj_sells_controversial_pension_investment_in_firm_tied_to_massachusetts_republican_candidate_report.html#incart_m-rpt-1

114. After generations of industry trashed the Passaic River, finally millions of dollars have been secured to clean it up. BUT...Christie uses the money to fill his budget holes instead.$190M settlement in pollution suit would end decade-long legal fight over Passaic River : http://www.northjersey.com/news/190m-settlement-in-pollution-suit-would-end-decade-long-legal-fight-over-passaic-river-1.1088416

115. The poor governor is tired! Come on fellows-eight months is enough. Christie Says He’s ‘Growing Tired’ of Bridge Investigation: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-09-18/christie-says-he-s-growing-tired-of-n-j-bridge-investigation.html

and a related update to #115: How The Media (Briefly) Exonerated Christie Oh, and Christie says he always tells the truth, except of course when he isn't. Read Matt Katz' coverage here: http://www.njspotlight.com/stories/14/09/24/how-the-media-briefly-exonerated-christie# What remarkable coincidences. Here's 115 items (and counting) that tend to prove Christie is corrupt. All Brian Williams needed was one "anonymous source" to declare him innocent! Could something possibly be wrong here?

116. I should have posted this a while ago but I didn't read Mr. Manzo's book until I had a couple of days on the beach last month. It confirms everything we've been saying here and more. Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie : http://www.ruthlessambitionthebook.com/ He comes right out and calls Christie what he is-a sociopath.

Isn't my husband a funny guy?

117. Oh, I completely forgot about this one. The "Race to the Top" grant fiasco that let him throw Brett Schundler (one of the only non-U.S. Attorneys in his administration) under the bus Error on 'Race to the Top' application costs N.J. $400M in federal funds :http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2010/08/error_on_race_to_the_top_appli.html

and again for those who like original materials, read Brett Schundler's recount of the circumstances that Christie brazenly lied about (what else would you expect from a sociopath) here: http://media.nj.com/ledgerupdates_impact/other/DOETermination-ChronologyofEvents.pdf

118. Chris Christie IS a sociopath! All the signs point to it. Charismatic, lying, prone to angry outbursts, no empathy, ultra-ambitious, will do anything to win-not just once, but over and over again his behavior confirms it. The Sociopathy of Chris Christie http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Sociopathy-of-Chris-Ch-by-Barry-Sussman-Chris-Christie_Chris-Christie_Prosecution_Scandal-140208-879.html

That's a good one David! And by the way-if anyone asks- I don't know you
