Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, mild, almost spring like island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Wednesday, the 15th day of January, 2014, Happy Birthday Melissa! and what a week it has been. Since the last time we spoke, the Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, a republican, has been under the microscope regarding his involvement with the closing of lanes feeding onto the busiest bridge in the world, the George Washington, taking commuters, school children, first responders as well as commerce to and from Fort Lee, New Jersey to Manhattan, creating massive traffic headaches for a week in early September, 2013. It has been quite the scandal, as it was pushed under the rug yesterday by the governor himself at his “State of the State” speech in New Jersey’s capital Trenton. However, that does not stop the now federal and state investigations going forward for both this fiasco and for the possible misappropriation of funds by Christie for super storm Sandy relief that featured the republican and his family in “stronger than the storm” Ads right before the election. Couple that with legislators in the state who are issuing subpoenas to the now infamous and unemployed ‘ring leader’ Bridget Anne Kelly, Christie’s deputy chief of staff, as well as Christie’s so called enforcer, political thug as it were, Bill Stepien, a now fired campaign manager who must have worked with Wildstein, who, as an appointee of Christie’s, (and a childhood friend) to the Port Authority, has already taken the fifth with his lawyer throwing in the caveat that, and I paraphrase only slightly here, “…if you offer my client immunity, you may just get the answers you are looking for.” Wink, wink, nudge, nudge indeed counselor! MSNBC has taken a good hard look at all of this, thanks Rachel, Lawrence, Ed, Steve K., Chris M., Reverend Al, Alex, Chris H., Thomas, Chris J., Melissa H.P., Andrea, the ‘kids’ at the Cycle, well, you get the point (Mika and Joe, you are either blindly loyal to Christie or ready for FOX & FRIENDS). This has been quite a media circus that leads to some powerful questions above and beyond the bridge scandal, such as, “…do we want this kind of man in the White House?, someone who would take personal vengeance to a level that it actually hurts common citizens? And what of his bullying temperament?”… Political payback is nothing new for New Jersey or many other states for that matter. However, WE can clearly see that this is beyond the pale and brings into the pallet an almost “Dean” like Watergate taste to this whole sordid affair, a mess screaming COVERUP, and we all know that the coverup is far worse than the actual crime, President Nixon knew that all too well. Therefore during the course of the next few weeks this country will find out the TRUTH as to what really transpired during the week of September 11th on the George Washington Bridge. Of course, the right wing has blasted back with the usual suspects, suspects FOX NEWS would say ‘balance’ the whole thing, resurrecting “scandals” involving President Obama. Benghazi, the IRS and “Fast and Furious” are the favorites, with close seconds being “Obamacare” (which is doing great by the way, with 24 percent, and rising, of the enrollees being 18-34, balancing the risk pool, critical for the ACA’s success), Obama’s birthplace, Obama’s ties to the Nazi party, Michelle Obama’s iron fisted reign over our right to eat as much sugar, salt and fat as we want, God dammit!, the total disregard for the unemployed, the total disdain for the poor and the continued restrictions on women’s reproductive rights not to mention cutting more regulation so that we can finally destroy our water sources forever via fracking for natural gas or putting a f#$king chemical plant, thanks Freedom Industries! on the Elk river in West Virginia, last inspected in 1991, so that it eventually leaks a dangerous chemical into said river, leaving 300,000 plus people without ANY running water for five days–a canary in the COAL mine if I have ever seen one by golly! This is all very disturbing, but take a look at Charlotte, North Carolina for a moment and the growing problem of police violence, especially towards minorities. A little while back, a promising young African American male was gunned down by an officer Kerrick of the Charlotte Police Department. It seems this young man was in an accident, a car accident one evening and went to a house to get some help. The woman who answered the door thought the man a robber so she called 911. When the officers arrived (the tapes will show) the man was not armed; clearly no threat as he was only in need of some assistance. Instead of helping him, officer Kerrick opened fire, killing the man while emptying the clip on his nine millimeter Glock, with all bullets’ trajectories pointed downward, proving he was shot in cold blood. Add to that the fact the coroner had to take off the handcuffs that officer placed on him after he killed him, makes this a horrific crime that must see JUSTICE. The mother of Jonathon Ferrell appeared on “Politics Nation” (Reverend Al Sharpton’s fine news program every week night at six p.m. eastern, only on MSNBC, p.s. this is not a paid Ad!) where she explained that because of her FAITH, she found it in her heart to forgive the police officer, quoting the Bible, “…vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord”, asking only for JUSTICE for her son as this saga unfolds. So perhaps, with the nation taking a hard look at this bridge scandal spanning the Hudson, we will see the error of Chris Christie’s ways. The ARC of Justice ever bends towards the good and the righteous–towards the LIGHT that IS the TRUTH. A “truth” not as “you see it”, Governor, but as it IS, forever. Have a nice day and week end folks and keep it tuned to seacapecod.net, bringing the highlights of President Barack Obama’s State of the UNION soon, not to mention new revelations regarding this ongoing saga in the great state of New Jersey. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
