Christie administration lawyers up; subpoenas going out

""(CNN)-- Chris Christie's administration got outside legal help on Thursday as a special state legislative committee decided to issue 20 subpoenas to launch its formal investigation of a scandal over alleged political retribution by top aides to the New Jersey governor.
The subpoenas for 17 individuals and three organizations seek documents for now, said Democratic Assemblyman John Wisniewski, chairman of the panel.
He refused to identify any recipients, saying they should learn of their subpoenas through being served instead of the news media.
But CNN has obtained some of the names of those subpoenaed, including top current and former Christie administration officials.
Key players subpoenaed in bridge scandal
According to a source familiar with the subpoenas, among those served are: Kevin O'Dowd, Christie's chief of staff, David Samson, a close adviser, Bridget Anne Kelly, former deputy chief of staff, Bill Stepien, two-time Christie campaign manager, Charlie McKenna, Christie's chief counsel, Regina Egea, incoming chief of staff, Michael Drewniak, Christie's chief spokesman, Nicole Davidman Drewniak, Bill Baroni, top New Jersey official at Port Authority and Christie appointee, Patrick Foye, Port Authority executive director, Maria Comella, Colin Reed and Matt Mowers.
The committee is also looking at entities that had to do with the governor's re-election, the source said.""

Robert Gates: Obama 'Absolutely Right' To Oppose Congressional Plan For New Iran Sanctions
""WASHINGTON -- Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates defended President Barack Obama's policy on Iran Friday, arguing that additional sanctions now run the risk of ending negotiations with the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program.
"I think the president is absolutely right to oppose Congress in enacting any additional sanctions right now," he said, speaking to a group of reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast in the St. Regis Hotel in downtown Washington. "As hard it is for everybody to deal with, we may actually be seeing success in the policy."
"They are at the table -- I think the sanctions policy pursued by these presidents has worked. I think to add sanctions right now really would run a very high risk of blowing it all up."
As with many of the criticisms Gates leveled in his memoir, Duty: Memoirs Of A Secretary At War, he tempered his comments by suggesting that an act by Congress could also be beneficial. "On the other hand, I don't see the harm -- in fact, do see benefit -- in some kind of message, whether it's legislation or a resolution, that basically tells the Iranians,'If these negotiations fail, then you are going to face a worse situation than you had at the beginning of the negotiations. We will not go back to a status quo ante.'"
"I think that would strengthen the administration's hand," he said of such a congressional action -- an argument that the administration rejects.
He concluded on a more supportive note for the administration, saying, "Giving the president and Secretary Kerry open-field running for the six months of this negotiation, I think, is very important."
Gates' comments on Iran were more definitively in favor of the administration's stance than those he gave to "PBS News Hour," where he said that while imposing new sanctions would be a mistake, it could strengthen the administration's position to threaten additional sanctions should negotiations break down. "I think that the idea of imposing new sanctions right now is a terrible mistake and would be a strategic error. On the other hand, I do disagree with the administration in this respect," he said. "I think any new sanctions need to be conditioned and triggered by the failure of the negotiations."" "

Gates is really impressed with Obama!!

What nonsense.
You try to trap people with the words they use, then you say you haven't had TV in 10 years, only to change it to:
"I have a TV".
It doesn't matter where your input is from, you flat out lied.
You have and watch TV. Likely you use an antenna, too for local stations.
But you did it without crude talk, so I guess we're still OK.
LOL
lol...try again nuc. Would you feel better if I said I have a tv "set". I don't own even rabbit ears. You are nitpicking now, nuc.

There is an abundance of bitter liberals on this site! You would think that since the economy is doing so great that they would be happy.....oh wait, we need to extend unemployment benefits. You would think that since obamaCare passed everyone would be signing up for healthcare especially the younger population and anyone that wants can keep their current plan......OOooops. So now its clear that the left likes to lie and be lied to. You would think that since bo "promised to bring to justice" to the murdered Americans in Benghazzi that he would be working on it. Oh, "al Qaeda is on the run" and it was a reaction to the outrage of a video....really. So by the following factual events (and there are to many to list) we can deduce that the left is supported by lies, promotes lies, agrees with lies which fundimentally equates anyone from the left as a liar.

White Castle Slider Deemed 'Most Influential Burger Of All Time'

""Time magazine says White Castle's small, square "sliders" are "the most influential burger of all time."

The magazine notes the "now-iconic square patty" that debuted in 1921 in Wichita, Kan. was the first burger to spawn a fast-food empire. White Castle has been based in Columbus since 1934.

The Time story — http://ti.me/1eWFs19 — puts the White Castle burger at the top of the list of the 17 most influential burgers of all time, beating out burgers from McDonald's and In-N-Out.

White Castle vice president Jamie Richardson tells The Columbus Dispatch that "slider" has been a term of endearment for the delectable little burgers since the 1950s.""
