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

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

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.

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.

In my mind, if Mr.Booker had stood up like a man and told the truth,Dems be damned, he would have become a statesman.Now, he´s just a cheap hack.Disappointing.

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.
They were a collective embarrassment to America, as they basked in their negritude.

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.

Taxpayers wrote a $900,000 settlement check to a federal employee to compensate her for once being likened to a “Little Rascals” character by her boss, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group (TheDCNF) has learned. The secret settlement appears to be one of the largest-ever discrimination settlement payouts to an individual federal employee. The payment came after an Equal Opportunity Employment office ruled that the remark was racist and accepted without challenge the claim that it caused nearly a million dollars worth of emotional harm. The offending boss was Mary K. Kinney, then-executive vice president of Ginnie Mae, which is

Last week in Chicago, a white special-needs teenager was held captive by four black youths. The victim was bound, gagged, tortured, forced to drink toilet water, partially scalped, and subject to racially and politically motivated verbal abuse. The perpetrators streamed portions of their violent savagery on Facebook. After the victim escaped from his assailants and was found on the streets by a police officer, a Chicago police commander initially said he was unsure whether the attack constituted a hate crime — as if that distinction might calibrate the crime’s viciousness. President Obama was likewise initially hesitant to label this cruelty

Billionaire investor George Soros lost nearly $1 billion after the stock market rallied following Donald Trump’s surprise Election Day victory, The Wall Street Journalreported Thursday. Sources familiar with the hedge fund manager’s trading said he remained cautious going into the November election and then made the mistake of becoming more bearish immediately after Mr. Trump’s win. The stock market rallied on expectations that Mr. Trump’s policies would boost the economy, causing Mr. Soros’ trading positions to incur losses approaching $1 billion, sources told The Journal. “Mr. Soros adjusted his positions and exited many of his bearish bets late last year,

StemExpress, which was referred by Congress for criminal investigation last week, dropped its lawsuit against David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress on Tuesday, one day before an appellate hearing was set to take place on a motion to strike the complaint. Charles LiMandri, president of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, which represents the CMP, said the timing of the dismissal is telling.

Like tired old racists clinging to their discredited past and divisive politics, Democrats wheezed exhaustively on their racial dogwhistles Tuesday in their increasingly futile bid to derail Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination to become the next attorney general. The disgraceful charade proved nothing except that Democrats have learned absolutely zilch since suffering a devastating rejection by voters in November’s election, in which they shamelessly and relentlessly tried segregating the country along the lines of race, religion and sex. It was their Lost Cause. “Forget, hell!” The colors of their rainbow flag do not run. They keep each color segregated. Each colored

U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said he spoke with President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday evening to discuss media leaks of a classified intelligence briefing on Russian hacking that Trump received last Friday. Clapper said in a statement that he does not believe the U.S. intelligence community leaked a private security document alleging Russian intelligence operatives have compromising information on Trump. "I emphasized that this document is not a U.S. Intelligence Community product and that I do not believe the leaks came from within the IC," Clapper said.

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in
