Governor Christie’s Demagoguery

In his put down of Senator Rand Paul for the latter’s defense of limited governmental powers in foreign policies, Governor Chris Christie has not produced arguments but engaged in demagoguery. Bringing up the grieving of relatives of 9/11 victims amounts to just that.

The issue is whether the government has the authority to exert military and similar power as it carries out the task of securing the rights of the citizenry. It must find a way and not violate rights, for which there is no excuse. If governments do engage in rights violation while securing the rights of the citizenry, they become criminal organizations and lose their moral authority, period.


Senator Rand Paul is asserting this line of thinking and to try to refute him by the demagoguery resorted to by Governor Christie demonstrates that ineptitude of the government. After all, officials of the government take an oath to carry out their task within constitutional limits. Just as cops must not overstep these as they do their job, so must federal officials. Only very rarely may there be exceptions to this policy, in cases of imminent danger.

It is really sad that a governor of an American state doesn’t grasp all this.

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.

  • Hans:

    I believe that Christie is simply a plant by the
    Socialist movement or that the slot for the Demco
    position was filled.

    Begin the vetting process (DD) and you will
    discover the real truth, especially after they
    have assumed POWER.

    Beware of anyone from the New England area
    claiming to be a conservative, according
    to the New Scientest magazine, the last known
    conservative died with the Passenger Pigeon.

  • I guess the solution to getting one hand cut off is to cut off the other. The 9/11 event was a tragedy. It has very little to do with the quagmire that has developed since. Hopefully Paul can open the eyes of many Americans. Christie is merely part of the organized eastern establishment crime syndicate. The socialists drove the old Democrats into the Republican party. The old Republicans took over the Democratic Party and now run both parties and I am certain, laugh at the rest of us identifying ourselves as one or the others at their dinner parties. Christie is part of the old establishment.

    When lawyers, such as Christie and Obama can’t differentiate between lawful government and legal government, we have lost the country and it has become nothing more than a ruling crime syndicate. Senator Obama wouldn’t any more have remained silent on the current issues, than he would have refused the hundreds of millions from Goldman Sachs and other Wall Streeters for protection. Neither would his currently silent Democratic colleagues, had the President been Republican. Those on the East Coast might remember Sherman burning the south, a form of terror on his own country. Terrorists come in different forms.
