 Updated, 1:54 p.m. | Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey endorsed Donald J. Trump on Friday, a major turn in a wild race and one that gives the New York businessman a significant boost as he heads into the pivotal “Super Tuesday” contests.

Mr. Christie was a candidate for president himself until he came in sixth place in New Hampshire’s primary. Seeing his political career facing an abrupt conclusion after his failed presidential campaign, he expressed his anger Friday at Senator Marco Rubio, whom he was said to be upset with, blaming the “super PAC” backing the Florida senator for halting his momentum in New Hampshire with a string of slash-and-burn ads.

The endorsement came a day after Mr. Rubio, in a withering debate performance, turned his guns on Mr. Trump for the first time, and followed upwith his attacks on Friday morning, calling Mr. Trump a “con artist.”

At Friday’s news conference announcing the endorsement, which was peppered with demeaning insults of Mr. Rubio by the two men, Mr. Christie repeatedly attacked Mr. Rubio, calling his behavior at the debate “desperate” and reflective of a “losing campaign.”

  1. REAL DESPERATION FROM THE TWO POLITICAL PARTIES. IT’S LAUGHABLE.

    The professional class in the Republican Party and the Democratic zealots are desperate, as Trump is going to cut off all their perks and corruption, which is in the majority of chambers with the Capitol. The Super PAC’s are now rampantly attacking TRUMP as their days are becoming numbered. All the freebies, the under table payoffs, the cheap interest mortgages, the vacation junkets for family, their cronies and the brown paper bags stuffed with hundred dollar bills hidden in Politicians office. The politicians feel vulnerable as they are illustrating their frustration, which involved Cruz and Rubio. They cannot get their slippery hands on the population of the voting public, their anger finally appearing and looking in utter annoyance such as tax returns, marriages, bankruptcies, and even connections to the Mafia.

    But we already have a Mafia and that is the Status Quo in Washington? Hey what about the Black Panthers, Black lives matter and other radical organizations that is just as aggressive as the KKK? Oh! Boy! Both sides are really feeling the pinch and for once it hurts like hell. As I said, they are not scrapping the bottom of that barrel, and I DON’T CARE–nor does my family, my black, White, Hispanic colleagues from the Vet-Nam war who have been disregarded after fighting for America. The Democratic and Republicans are on to it, like insects on flypaper. But this time it isn’t going to work on free thinking patriotic Americans?

    The mainstream leftist media and anybody who is going to lose their profit margin of CHEAP LABOR are determined to unsaddle Donald Trump. Washington insiders and the Democratic Hierarchy are in collusion with the IRS, (no accountability of Prosecutions) for Lois Lerner or any elected officials in the Hillary Clinton Foundation, or any other fraudulent acts why she was Secretary of State.

    The GOP establishment and even foreign countries are getting equally worried now. Cruz, Rubio and now Former Mexican President Felipe Calderon, Vicente Fox are beginning to realize that the days of the stealth theft of taxpayer dollars is coming to abrupt end. Vincente Fox is suddenly realizing that Mexico stealing for decades from the American people is beginning to materialize before his immoral eyes. IT’S MY OPINION THAT THE MEXICAN AUTHORITIES CAPITALIZE ON THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION, THE DRUGS AND OTHER CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES AS THE FINALLY GRASP THAT DONALD TRUMP IS NOT A JOKE ANYMORE AND THEIR GOING TO FIND THE WALL IS GOING TO CUT DOWN ON THEIR INNER GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION.

    Whole families of the needy, the unaccompanied children is a deception, so we the taxpayer are forced to support. However the Trumps wall is going to rise up and that the citizens and lawful residents of our great country see its actually going to happening, not the incessant lies from Washington. For decades the wealthy and special interests have been able to navigate their favorite politician, in any monetary direction they demanded. THIS TIME HOWEVER, THEY HAVE DONALD TRUMP TO CONTEND WITH, WHO THEY CANNOT BUY.

    The country has been in a rut, because it’s been driven by the powerful and affluent. Mexico is afraid, so is China as they are beginning to speak out against the one man who can discontinue the job loss, and businesses that have ventured out of the jurisdiction of the United States and bring it all back–or face huge taxes. Trumps policy is prevent the theft of jobs, businesses and with the towering wall and 1000 miles extended along the Southern border topped with razor wire, which lawmakers has assured us for years they were going to construct and just faded away like all their lying promises.

    Annually our nation incurs hundreds of billions of dollars, looking after the education, healthcare, and welfare for the 12 million plus illegal aliens in the name of cheap labor or illegal Democratic voters. At the same time our manufacturing is disappearing overseas or across our border, again the cost in federal arrears is again in the hundreds of billions. The profiteers that import the goods and other products offer campaign money to the legislators in congress,

    Senator Cruz of Texas has taken no action to reduce the rewarding of illegal immigration by giving citizenship to anchor babies. Voted in favor of granting President Authority to expand immigration levels without Congress’ consent via Trade Promotion Authority in 2015 Sen. Cruz voted in favor of final passage of Trade Promotion Authority bill, H.R. 1314. His state should be aware of this as their jobs are taken by foreign labor with special visas, or just illegal immigrants. Our Senior Citizens are paid just enough money to survive on a slender thread and millions of other Americans. The panders to illegal alien invaders will eventually have to pay a living wage to citizens and people who have a right to be here.

    Senator Rubio has taken no action to reduce the rewarding of illegal immigration by giving citizenship to anchor babies. Rubio leans toward higher immigration, population growth, and foreign labor. Voted in favor of granting President Authority to expand immigration levels without Congress’ consent via Trade Promotion Authority in 2015 Sen. Rubio voted in favor of final passage of Trade Promotion Authority bill, H.R. 1314. Senator Rubio on the same wavelength is also patronizing the cheap labor and open border profiteers who are essential stealing our job market.

    The Hard core GOP establishment, has dragged Mitt Romney back in the race trying to sell to the American public that Donald Trump has a ‘Bombshell’ in his old tax returns. What’s next that Donald Trump is a North Korean secret agent? It’s very humorous really as the hierarchy at the top of the pecking order is losing–and losing big. I have expletive for this, but I certainly would get suppressed. With Gov Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton you will live in the same slime of a dying economic uncertainty.

    Ford manufacturing and auto parts, Nabisco bakeries have already set their sights on transporting part of their conglomerate to Mexico.

    Then, the Indianapolis Business Journal has reported that the manufacturing huge company ‘Carrier’ is motivated, over the next three years in relocating 1,400 jobs to Mexico. Carrier is the foremost air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration systems manufacturer. In another correlated statement, northeast Indiana-based United Technologies Electronic Controls is also to remove jobs to Mexico. By 2018, 700 jobs will materialize in Mexico. No need to speculate that net employment gains is dreary when U.S. manufacturing segment are moving overseas and has been stagnating for months and even years, finding a better opportunity in foreign countries with fewer regulations and cheap labor. Carrier and UTEC are units of the Hartford, Connecticut-based United Technologies Corp., a Fortune 500 company with $65 billion in annual revenue.

    EVERYBODY GETS A HAND-UP WITH TRUMP, NO MATTER YOUR ORIGIN, CREED, AND SKIN COLOR. THE EXCEPTION IS THE VIOLATORS OF OUR LAWS–ILLEGAL ALIENS. BUT IF YOU LEAVE AND RETURN LEGALLY, YOU WILL BE GIVEN EVERY CHANCE ONCE YOU HAVE ASSIMILATED AS HONEST PERSON. OTHERWISE WITH NEW INNOVATIONS TO E-VERIFY AND A DIGITAL SYSTEM AT ALL PORTS OF ENTRY YOU WILL BE TRACKED DOWN AND EITHER REPATRIATED OR DEPORTED. HEINOUS CRIMINALS WILL NOT BE RELEASED AS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS ADMITTED AND WITHOUT TELLING POLICE DEPARTMENTS NATIONWIDE.

    A concern with any type of election is electoral fraud, which includes ballot stuffing, bribery, registering false voters, bogus absentee ballots, voter intimidation, and multiple votes by one person, residing in one county and voting in the county or neighboring state; interference with vote counting. Such illegal activity was the eventual investigation of the ‘ACORN’ organization that was registering non-citizens. With the huge influx of illegal aliens this could open doors to voter fraud in electoral precincts by relaxing registration laws, thus making it easier for more people to vote and increasing turnout and if illegal aliens had violated immigration laws once, a second time will be an easy tactic. The Left doesn’t seem to care, and have even urged perplexed illegal people to vote.
