    New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker told an audience of progressive activists on Wednesday that Americans who aren’t “deeply disturbed” by the current political climate need to “check” their love of country. The man who once said he burst into “tears of rage” after hearing about comments President Trump allegedly made about third-world countries told attendees at the We The People Summit that Americans have lost a “sense of purpose. **SNIP** “Folks are trying to divide us and cut us up, pin us against each other — poor white folks against poor black folks, poor brown folks against poor black folks,”...

    The old woman walked outside in her bathrobe and curlers to shout at the man who might be president. “Senator Booker!” she called out to him. Cory Booker spun around and saw the woman standing on the stoop of her apartment building. “Oh my gosh!” he said. “How are you? I haven’t seen you in the longest time!” The woman was incredulous. “What are you doing over here?” she exclaimed. “Just walking around the neighborhood,” said Booker. “I love that robe. Look at that.” Her name is Stephanie. They apparently have known each other for a while. With a warm...
  • Why Democrats Should Get On Board With Universal Employment

    WBUR Public Radio ^ | April 25, 2018 | by Miles Howard
    Two years ago, the Democratic frontrunner running for president scored votes and pundit points by reasoning that universal health care — among other big ideas being floated by liberals at the time — was too difficult: that progress happens in increments, and not earthquakes. That was 2016. This year, likely Democratic contenders for the 2020 White House race have embraced not only single-payer, but as of this week, an even more radical idea that makes government health care look like an exercise in political moderatism. Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booger and Bernie Sanders have each called for a program that would...

    Senator Booker, pursuant to your questioning of Secretary of State candidate Mike Pompeo, I’d like to ask you some forthright questions. I understand you might never read this article. Or, if you do read it, you might choose not to respond. At the least, though, we can put these questions on public record. When interviewing Secretary of State candidate Mike Pompeo, you asked him about his views on same-sex “marriage,” which he had previously opposed. I very much appreciate the fact that Mr. Pompeo did not back down on his conviction that marriage is reserved for members of the opposite...

    Mike Pompeo, President Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, faced an offensive line of questioning from Sen. Cory Booker – demanding to know if he opposed same-sex marriage and if he thought gay sex was perverse. Booker (R-NJ) came dangerously close to suggesting Pompeo’s Christian faith and religious beliefs made him unsuitable to be secretary of state. •Booker: “Is being gay a perversion?” •Pompeo: “Senator, when I was a politician, I had a very clear view on whether it was appropriate for two same-sex persons to marry. I stand by that.” •Booker: “So, you do not believe that it’s appropriate...

    Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) grilled Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo during his Senate confirmation hearing Thursday about Pompeo's stated opposition to gay marriage. Booker was referring to a speech Pompeo made in 2015 while he was a Kansas congressman, which cited a prayer delivered by the Rev. Joe Wright. "America had worshiped other Gods and called it multiculturalism. We’d endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle,” Pompeo said. "Those are your words," Booker said to Pompeo. "Is being gay a perversion?" Pompeo replied by stating he had a "clear view" on whether gay marriage was "appropriate" while he...

    Washington (CNN)Capitol Hill is no stranger to partisan clashes, but on Thursday, the East Lawn saw a different kind of battle: a snowball fight. Sens. Cory Booker, D-New Jersey, and Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, ventured outside Thursday morning for a "snowball duel." The stakes: Loser would have to buy pizza for the winner's staff. Booker announced he lost the duel to Flake. "With great ignominy I have to announce I lost the snowball fight 3 to 2," he wrote. "I'm buying the pizza for his office . . . . I neglected to tell him though that I am definitely sending...

    Senators Cory Booker (N.J.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), who top the list of potential Democratic challengers to President Donald Trump in 2020, both announced last week that they would forgo accepting donations from corporate PACs in an effort to cure the corrosive effect they say special interest spending has had on the political system. But neither extended their pledge to labor unions and ideological groups. Gillibrand made her pledge last week. It was quickly followed by Booker, who, echoing Gillibrand, said the "campaign finance system is broken." Neither's pledge to stymie outside spending, however, extended to labor unions and ideological...

    Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is not done with DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. Not even close. The intense tantrum from Booker at the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday was due to two things; 1) He’s running for president in 2020; and 2) the “tears of rage” that flowed when he heard about the president’s remarks about immigrants from “s**thole countries,” and why are we letting them come here. Nielsen couldn’t recall the president using this exact language when he said it during a meeting between Democrats and Republicans over immigration, the obstacle that could shut down the government later tonight.

    Sen. Cory Booker said Wednesday that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony was “offensive” and accused her of lying under oath. “She pretended like she didn’t remember. She couldn’t remember what the president of the United States, the commander-in-chief, her boss, was saying. She didn’t remember Lindsey Graham, who challenged the president on his vile words. Yesterday, it was so offensive to me she lied under oath,” Mr. Booker, New Jersey Democrat, said on CBS News.

Neither a Black Man or Woman that is currently a left-wing ,liberal, progressive, Democrat will be elected POTUS for a long time.

    Sen. Cory Booker found himself compared to actor Tommy Wiseau of “The Room” on Tuesday after raising his voice during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. An angry exchange with Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen became one of the top tending stories on Twitter this week when Mr. Booker recounted “tears of rage” over comments attributed to Mr. Trump. The New Jersey Democrat scolded Ms. Nielsen for “amnesia” when she testified under oath that she never heard the president refer to “sh—hole” countries during policy negotiations. “When [Illinois senator] Dick Durbin called me, I had tears of rage when I heard...

Cory Booker (D-NJ), a hard leftist Democrat senator from New Jersey who spent Saturday campaigning with fellow radical Doug Jones, went on a fake news tirade on Saturday night, pushing inaccurate information about GOP nominee for U.S. Senate Roy Moore and calling for President Donald Trump to resign. According to Vice News’s Alex Jaffe, who interviewed Booker at a Jones campaign event in the state of Alabama, Booker called for President Trump to follow Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) in resigning. Franken, this week, announced his forthcoming resignation from the Senate over allegations of sexual misconduct that he has admitted...

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Kamala Harris is the potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate generating the most excitement among the black political elite, according to participants at this year’s Congressional Black Caucus Foundation policy forum in Washington. It’s still way too soon for endorsements — none of the major potential candidates are even in the race yet and elected officials say they’re more focused on the 2018 mid-terms than the next presidential contest — but Harris, a California Democrat who is in her first year in the Senate, has emerged at the center of attention.
