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]

Pathetic path to exposure. Well, we saw you.
Not impressed. When Obama leaves, please go with him.

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.

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.

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow saw a steep drop in ratings the day after she released one of President Trump´s tax forms. Maddow and her preceding host Chris Hayes heavily promoted Tuesday´s broadcast as a "breaking" revelation, and Maddow devoted most of her program to Trump´s two-page 1040 form from 2005.

President Trump was in Florida at the White House Saturday. Last Friday, a man jumped the White House fence last Friday when Trump was there.

Everyone should try to skip the shiny things embedded within the story of a laptop theft from a Secret Service Agent Marie Argentieri. The theft appears to have nothing to do with Trump Tower or Trump Tower floor plans. The theft appears to have everything to do with Argentieri as a supportive investigator for Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Evidence of the specific targeting is transparent within the eye witness stories that a car pulled up, a passenger exited the vehicle – went directly to Agent Argentieri’s vehicle, broke in, took the back pack and walked away quickly.

President Donald Trump’s budget director told reporters Thursday the White House was no longer spending money on climate change research because it’s a “waste of your money.” “We’re not spending money on that anymore,” Mick Mulvaney, the Office of Management and Budget director, said at a press briefing while discussing the president’s decision to dial back climate science research. “We consider that to be a waste of your money,” he added. Trump released his congressional budget request Thursday, which contained several contentious reductions, including dramatic cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy.

WashingtonBarack Obama´s post-presidency life is way more glamorous than you could imagine. Back in Washington, President Donald Trump continues to suggest, without proof, that Obama wiretapped him and Republicans are busy trying to dismantle his signature health reform law. Nevertheless, former President Barack Obama is unwinding nicely from the most important job in the world. He´s been to sunny California for some golf, a private island in the Caribbean, where he kite-surfed with billionaire Richard Branson; he went to New York to take in a Broadway play, and then again, to dine with U2´s Bono.

In the four months since the election, New York and D.C. media outlets have been diligently boosting all stories related to Chelsea Clinton, apparently in the hopes that they can astroturf a political appetite among liberals for a political campaign by the former First Daughter.

[…] But that skepticism is starting to fade. Last month, a separate report in the New York Daily News said that Clinton could

Liberals have their own anti-science biases. Where conservatives often reject science based on their literal interpretation of the Bible or due to an abhorrence of federal regulations, liberals appear to be motivated by a belief that all things natural are good, anything with a chemical name is bad, and everything that profits an industry is really bad (unless that industry makes dietary supplements).

The notices were made public late Friday by Customs and Border Protection, the Homeland Security Department agency that will oversee the project and eventually patrol and maintain the wall.

Emerson College, a fancypants school dedicated solely to communication and performing arts, has officially deemed the word “homosexual” to be offensive. Emerson’s online “Guidelines for Inclusive Language” makes the proclamation. “Use gay or lesbian when describing people who are attracted to members of the same sex,” school officials instruct in the guide. “Avoid the use of homosexual and homosexual relationship.” The guide does not appear to provide any reason for this rule in its 1,440-word “inclusive language” guide. The handy guide to politically-correct words and phrases also informs writers to use several clunky terms including “business executive” instead of “businessman,
