The Real Reason Cory Booker
Testified Against Jeff Sessions

Fox Business, by Brittany De Lea

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2017 2:16:47 PM

In an unprecedented move, Senator Cory Booker, a Democrat from New Jersey, testified against fellow sitting senator, Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions, during his cabinet confirmation hearing at the Capitol on Wednesday. "If one is to be attorney general, they must be willing to continue the hallowed tradition in our country of fighting for justice for all, for equal justice for civil rights," Booker said. He went on to say Sessions has demonstrated "hostility" towards those values. (Snip) Booker may seek to divide Republicans by pointing out fundamental ideological differences that Sessions could bring into the next administration. “Democrats will drive a wedge

Comments:
This article states the obvious. Booker fancies himself as the next Obama. Good luck with that. No one in the eyes of the Democrats will ever compare to their messiah Obama. I could only tolerate a few minutes of his grandstanding before I turned it off. The shameless, disgraceful behavior of the Democrats is never ending. It is way beyond irritating and tiresome.

Headline corrected by staff.

His own political aspirations. Grandstanding. Obama wannabe.

Booker has faced criticism on the left. Salon called him an avatar of the wealthy elite, a camera hog, and a political cipher.[114]

I think that Obama ruined the chances of there being another "black" president for many election cycles. This half ´n half prezzy will cause many to think very hard before casting a ballot for a black in fear that we will end up with another racist in office.

Because Sessions went after the Klan, that terrorist organization created by the demoncrats to intimidate people into voting for them? Nowadays, they use the Black Panthers for the same purpose. Doesn´t matter what color they are, the purposes are the same.

Sorry, Cory - you won´t be the next Obama. Obama will make sure there will be no black president to upstage him, unless it is the Mooch herself - which he will consider a re-election of himself! O predict he would sabotage any other black ´messiah´ to threaten to rise; he reserves that title only to himself.

There is no member of the CBC that has any credibility. They are racists who push for special treatment of those who look like themselves. Notice also, those Blacks testifying against Sessions today were all politicians -- not one of them knew him and worked with him outside congress. At the same time, those testifying for Sessions were those who had worked with him over the years and saw him day to day. Now, who do I put credence in, a racist politician or and everyday citizen. That is no contest for me.

Washington For the first time, US investigators say they have corroborated some of the communications detailed in a 35-page dossier compiled by a former British intelligence agent, multiple current and former US law enforcement and intelligence officials tell CNN. As CNN first reported, then-President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama were briefed on the existence of the dossier prior to Trump´s inauguration. None of the newly learned information relates to the salacious allegations in the dossier. Rather it relates to conversations between foreign nationals.

The D.C. police are investigating a possible assault against Education Secretary Betsy DeVos when she was blocked from entering a local middle school Friday morning. The police department tweeted one man had been arrested for assaulting a police officer at the protest at Jefferson Middle School Academy. "Report that @BetsyDeVos was assaulted is under investigation," the account tweeted. DeVos first tried to enter the building when protesters physically blocked the stairwell. DeVos and her staff turned away and were followed by a chanting protester who ripped her for her political donations to Republicans. The protester chanted "Shame!" at DeVos as she got into

A grand jury has indicted more than 100 Inauguration Day protesters on rioting charges in Washington, D.C. In total, 209 people have now been indicted. The indictment, handed up D.C. Superior Court on Wednesday, charged 146 additional protesters with felony rioting — meaning they face a fine of up to $25,000 and a maximum of 10 years in prison. On Inauguration Day — Jan. 20 — 230 people were arrested and charged with felony rioting. Twelve cases have been dismissed. Local, state and federal law enforcement agencies provided 3,000 officers and were supported by 5,000 National Guard members and police officers in

Several towns, cities and counties around the nation are caving to President Trump´s threat to pull funding, and abandoning their "sanctuary" pledges to shield illegal immigrants from federal authorities. Dayton, Ohio, dropped a policy that restricted the city’s cooperation with immigration officials pursuing illegal immigrants arrested for misdemeanors or felony property crimes, according to the Dayton Daily News. Police Chief Richard Biehl said federal authorities will no longer be impeded by the city when pursuing illegal immigrants being held by his department. Other communities that have dropped policies of shielding illegal immigrant suspects from Immigration and Customs Enforcement include Miami-Dade

The judgment of the Ninth Circuit upholding the temporary restraining order (TRO) against President Donald Trump’s recent executive order restricting travel from seven terror-prone countries would have allowed one of the 9/11 hijackers to sue the government to come to, or stay in, the United States. Under the court’s novel theory of legal standing, “injuries” to public universities that result from foreign students and teachers not being able to enter the country give the states standing to sue. Moreover, the court held that foreigners with visas have due process rights under the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, even though the precedent

When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington.

Hillary Clinton is a public figure who bitterly divides the nation, perhaps more than any other politician, and she has done so since she came into prominence 24 years ago with the election of her husband. And though she has been twice thwarted in her ambitions to enter the White House as President of the United States, she did live there for eight years, from 1993-2001, as First Lady. Only a handful of people spent as many hours in close proximity to the Clintons as Robert McNeely, who spent six years with the family as the White House photographer, and whose photographic
