Christie Busted: Port Authority Official Says NJ Governor Lied About Lane Closings, “Has Evidence To Prove It” (ZeroHedge, Jan 31, 2014):

The sharks are circling Chris Christie who just sprung a bloody leak (either that or the population must really need to be distracted from a horrible January for stocks and what may be coming next). Moments ago the NYT reported that the former Port Authority official who personally oversaw the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge “said that the governor knew about the lane closings when they were happening, and that he had the evidence to prove it.” Of course, if such evidence exists, Christie can call it a career after claiming the opposite on numerous occasions in the past month. Of course, one wonders whether Obama would have been impeached by now had the “independent and impartial media” hounded him with the same fervor for his numerous transgressions and repeated lies to the American public. Alas, we will never know the answer.

Bankruptcy In The USSA: Detroit Bondholders About To Be GM’ed In Favor Of Pensioners

Obama-Communist

Bankruptcy In The USSA: Detroit Bondholders About To Be GM’ed In Favor Of Pensioners (ZeroHedge, Jan 31, 2014):

First, the Obama administration showed that when it comes to most preferred voter classes in the eyes of the Obama administration, some unsecured creditors – namely labor unions, and the millions of votes they bring – are more equal than other unsecured creditors – namely bondholders, and the zero votes they bring. Five years later we are about to get a stark reminder that under the superpriority rule of a community organizer for whom “fairness” trumps contract law any day, it is now Detroit’s turn to make a mockery of the recovery waterfall. As it turns out, bankrupt Detroit is proposing to favor pension funds at roughly double the rate of bondholders to resolve an estimated $18 billion in long-term obligations, according to a draft of a debt-cutting plan reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
