CBC Chair: Lewis and Booker Testifying
At End of Sessions Hearing ‘Equivalent’
of Having To Go To ‘The Back of the Bus’

Breitbart Video, by Ian Hanchett

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2017 2:41:27 PM

During the confirmation hearings for Attorney General nominee Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Congressional Black Caucus Chair Representative Cedric Richmond (D-LA) argued that putting Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Representative John Lewis (D-GA) at the end of the witness panels for Sessions’ hearing is “the equivalent of being made to go to the back of the bus.” Richmond said, “First, I want to express my concerns about being made to testify at the very end of the witness panels. To have a senator, a House member, and a living Civil Rights legend testify at the end of all of this, is

Comments:
O M G!! This is so sickening, outrageous and disgusting! It appears that that racist Cedric Richmond is looking to replace Sharpton. Their behavior is just stunning. I wish they would stop it. They have never had it so good in this country and all they do is act like they are still living in the 50´s. Richmond is also the hack that said he would he would kick some rear ends if they again removed that filthy cop hating painting in the Capitol Building. I´m so sick of chaos and division all caused by Democrats!

No, it just shows that when you have to put up with racists, liars and rabblerousers, you either put them first to get it over with, or last to show your disdain. If Lewis was a civil rights champion, he would be singing the praises of Sessions, who prosecuted the Klan and broke them, and has never shown the least hint of racism. Lot more than most demoncrats have done.

The sorry spectacle for the world to see of these hearings are the reason why we are in the situation we are in. All of them are a disgrace to the country. They should be booted out no matter what. They represent why the French Revolution happened.

There is no situation or encounter, no matter how carefully planned and orchestrated (by both sides) from which some massive insult cannot be extracted and used to embarrass the Host and all the other Guests.

Grievance is a huge industry.

There is a great shhtruggle for who will be the next Captain of this Industry.

Booker is brutal and that helps.

The people who get to question last are in the BEST position, because they have the advantage of having heard everything that preceded them;
of course, admitting that would take away their race baiting antics. Stupid is as stupid does, so said a famous fictitious movie character.

The CBC´s relevance is drawing to a close now, so they are going to try extra hard to make some last ditch points. Maybe Booker kept his eyes shut during the testimony of lies he gave because he knew that Sessions was looking at him.

Booker tried to have it both ways, praising Sessions last year on video, and today with his lies. He cannot even look the man in the face while he is stabbing him in the back. And he thinks we will vote for him in 2020? Good luck.

Sometimes the back of the bus is just that. The back of the bus, no meaning and no insult to anyone.

The only reason Booker was allowed to testify was because of the color of his skin, certainly not the content of his character nor the expertise of his knowledge. Allowing a quota to be filled doesn´t mean the quota gets to pick the placement of the name cards at the dinner table.

If those members of the CBC "testifying" today are representative of the intelligence and integrity of Blacks in general, then it is no wonder that Blacks as a group in this country have progressed no more than they have. Until Blacks take ownership of their own actions and stop blaming everything on perceived racism they will continue to be on the Democrat plantation and lack respect from whites.

Lewis does not appear to understand the dichotomy of representing a self-segregating group of blacks and insisting that blacks be treated without regard for their race.

The great Thomas Sowell (who happens to be black) said:

“Civil rights used to be about treating everyone the same. But today some people are so used to special treatment that equal treatment is considered to be discrimination.”

Lewis and Booker were honored to be allowed to be witnesses, yet they whine. It is incumbent on them to present a logical, factual, intellectually sound testimony to make their case. Instead the play victim and play the race card. It demeans their cause and demeans them personally.

There was no reason offered by Lewis, Booker, or Richmond, to vote against Sessions.

I thought John Lewis had reached his nadir when he refused to refute the false witnesses claiming that people yelled the N word as Nancy Pelosi staged her Giant Gavel parade to pound Obamacare down the nation´s throat. But here he reached a new low. The Civil Rights Legend has obviously outlived his moral compass as now he turns on a man he praised & held hands with, slandering his former friend.

The press doesn´t just have Trump Derangement Syndrome. They now have full-blown Trump Psychosis. And like most people with serious disorders, they are teetering close to the brink of self-immolation. Nothing could have been more apparent in the president´s press conference Thursday. Almost none of the reporters were able to muster up a question without sounding adversarial or biased. One of them went so far as to pretend he was asking a neutral question, and then accused Trump of not being tough on anti-Semitism -- the sleaziest canard on the block, and patently ridiculous given the president´s actions.

When I first heard the name Alexander Acosta, Trump’s new pick for Labor Secretary, I knew it sounded eerily familiar. And then it dawned on me. He was the U.S. Attorney in charge of the Southern District of Florida from 2006 through 2009, and oversaw a sweetheart deal for Jeffrey Epstein. Yes, that Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted billionaire pedophile, who allegedly victimized dozens of underage girls. Here’s what you might not know about the case, and it raises some serious questions about how Acosta handled himself under intense pressure from a well-connected billionaire. In 2007, federal prosecutors, under Acosta’s leadership, quietly

The resignation of White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on Monday was the result of a coordinated effort by current and former U.S. intelligence officials to undermine the Trump administration using the disclosure of highly classified communications intercepts. (Snip) According to a White House national security official, the intelligence bureaucrats went after Mr. Flynn not because of his contacts with the Russian ambassador.

White House misconduct. Sensational leaks. Battling broadsheets. The swirling story around President Trump’s dealings with Russia is being compared in journalism circles to past blockbusters like Watergate and the Monica Lewinsky scandal — with a 21st-century twist. News organizations like The Washington Post, The New York Times and CNN are jousting for scoops, but instead of sending clerks to grab the early editions from newsstands, editors watch the news unfold on Twitter in real time. Anonymous sources are driving bombshell stories, and leaks are springing from encrypted iPhone messaging apps rather than from meetings in underground parking garages. The news

A huge well of molten carbon that would spell disaster for the planet if released has been found under the US. Scientists using the world´s largest array of seismic sensors have mapped a deep-Earth area, covering 700,000 sq miles (1.8 million sq km). This is around the size of Mexico, and researchers say it has the potential to cause untold environmental damage. The discovery could change our understanding of how much carbon the Earth contains, suggesting it is much more than we previously believed.

Binney was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001 after spending more than 30 years with the agency. Asked whether he believes the NSA is tapping Trump, Binney replied: “Absolutely. How did they get the phone call between the president and the president of Australia?

Cheered by journalists at a media roundtable in California late Tuesday, Marty Baron also said that despite some criticism, the Post is doing its job, not acting as the opposition.

FOE gave kids a lunch menu designed to eliminate foods it says are “unsustainable for our planet.” The new menu features far less meat and more plant-based food. Any meat or cheese the school did use came from “pastured, organic dairy cows.” The student’s lunch menu went from beef hot dogs and pepperoni pizza to vegan stir fry tofu and vegan tostadas.
