I’ve been asked, why I’m attacking Chris Christie and giving Barbara Buono a pass? That’s simple. Barbara Buono is a total disaster and not worth the ink. Chris Christie and Barbara Buono are birds of a feather. Neither deserves to represent “We the People” of New Jersey. That being said:
Fabrication and exaggeration are synonymous when referring to Chris Christie the political “chameleon.” Chris Christie would have you believe by his election literature claims that he’s committed to education. Let’s review some facts.
Chris Christie put a two-percent cap on education spending. He should have frozen spending. Student enrollment has steadily decreased, and the spending has dismal results, especially in our urban communities. The system is broken! If you think Chris Christie cares, I have a bridge to sell you, in which you can erect a toll-booth.
But before continue I remind the reader to heed the words of Thomas Jefferson:
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
You see Governor Chris Christie is banking on two factors:
- The voters have short memories, and
- The public will always to vote for the lesser of two evils.
When in truth voting for evil in any dose, results in disaster.
Chris Christie, banking on your short memories, is singing the same song he ran on in the last election, his prior campaign promise: he was committed to the innovation in education, free enterprise, and parental choice. Great campaign rhetoric then. And sadly he was as deceptive then as he is now. Need proof? Proof you shall have.
Chris Christie pulls a switch on virtual charter schools
This is inarguable: the internet is the answer in a world of technology. Its use in virtual charter school education programs has produced success throughout the nation. Such uses are becoming commonplace at all levels of education.
So where does Chris Christie fit into all this?
Two years after (Christie’s administration) approved the initial applications for an online charter schools, Christie’s Commissioner of Education, Chris Cerf: of the Department of Education reversed course, sending out letters telling two different virtual charter school applicants in a typical Christie Soprano vernacular, “forget about it!”
You see, Chris Christie motives are self-serving. He couldn’t care less whether these charter schools are the most advanced and innovative schools for learning. Appeasing the teachers’ unions brings him campaign contributions and votes.
He forgets that children in many areas in New Jersey are in substandard government indoctrination centers. Quality is an exception rather than the rule. Chris Christie backstabbed the parents and educators alike after stringing them along for two years. See the rejection letter the applicants received from Christie’s stooges:
Despite the presence of virtual charter schools in other states, there is inadequate independent research into both their academic effectiveness, as well as the necessary elements needed to ensure effective oversight.
Uncertainty about the legal foundations for fully virtual charter schools and the Department’s serious concerns regarding its ability to effectively oversee and monitor such schools precludes the department from granting NJVACS a final charter.
More damningly, neither Chris Christie’s nor his stooges would respond to the charter school applicants who stated, in writing,
[We will] comply with any and every concern the Department of Education mandate[s].
No reply was ever forthcoming. Why? Because the political prostitute was pressured by the Union to kill those applications. So much for his campaign promise: “parental choice, innovation in education and free enterprise.”
The Abbott Fiasco
Voters seem to have forgotten that the New Jersey state income tax was to be used exclusively to fund education. Monies were to be distributed to every municipality equally on based upon student population. Instead, the corrupt progressive establishment in both parties saw a cash cow and political tool for re-election.
Under the “color of law” the State Democrat-controlled Supreme Court illegally dictated who will receive your State income tax dollars. They sent them to 31 failing urban Democrat Districts without written law. They thereby usurped the valid legislative intent. So much for equal treatment. Mind you: Chris Christie could have instituted a legal action in federal court to overrule the State’s highest court. Instead Chris Christie capitulated and let a progressive NJ Supreme Court illegally legislate from the bench the unconstitutional Abbott District funding that discriminates again the suburbs.
But Christie “Blunderbuss” said words to this effect:
I don’t agree with the Court, but I’ll obey their decision.
Has anyone questioned this buffoon, who is supposed to be versed in the Constitution law? If a decision violates State and federal law, as Governor he had an obligation to protect all the municipalities equally. Instead, the so-called bombastic bull-dog tough-guy rolled over like a little Shih-Tzu instead of challenging the State judiciary in federal court.
Worst yet, Chris Christie would have you believe he’s trimming the budget, with his two-percent cap on education funding. Simple math shows that 2-percent increase a year equates to over 11-percent after 5-years. Do you really think your property taxes are not going to increase? Does he care? Why, no! He expects to be in Washington DC.
Gosh, I’m out of space. See Part III tomorrow. I promise it will be eye-opening. It will show why Chris Christie is not fit for office, especially the highest office in the State. Please, remember to use the internet and forward this to those on your e-mail list. Be informed, Let the truth be told.
