    Singapore Airlines Ltd. took delivery of the Airbus SE A350-900 ultra long range aircraft to start a non-stop service to New York, a journey of about 19 hours that will become the world’s longest. The first commercial flight between Singapore and Newark Liberty International Airport will be on Oct. 11, Singapore Air said in a statement yesterday. This is the first of the seven A350-900ULRs the carrier has on firm order with Airbus. Reviving the route that the Singapore flag carrier scrapped more than four years ago will help the airline fill a gap in its U.S. network that has...
  • Principal gave bullied kids a way to wash clothes at school, now Ellen gave him $50K

    Akbar Cook, principal of West Side High School in Newark, sat across from Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Friday, and couldn’t believe he was there. “I’m just so happy, I’m so nervous that I’m on the Ellen Show," he said, smiling, his hands fidgeting. “This is amazing. Wow." It’s understandable, Cook. She’s big, but you have done something special to earn the right to be there, too. I wrote a column about Cook last month because he had washing machines installed at his school this summer to deter bullying and embarrassment for his students, who didn’t want anyone to...

    Once upon a time, Corey Anthony Booker seemed like “a statesman.” As mayor of Newark, New Jersey, he talked to everybody, made deals, comported himself with dignity. He stood out from the pack; he was seen as an up-and-comer. Yet move him to the Senate and place him in front of national cameras? He has become something of a loon. “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” he said, referring to his leakage of confidential information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Michael Kavanaugh during this week’s hearings. Say what?...
  • Cory Booker becomes 'Spartacus' at Kavanaugh hearing, and forgets his old friend T-Bone

    If only Sen. Cory Booker had insisted on having an “I am T-Bone moment” at the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. It would have truly been heroic, with supporters of the Democratic presidential hopeful from New Jersey shouting that they, too, were T-Bone, the name of Booker’s imaginary drug dealer friend from the mean streets of Newark. “I am T-Bone!” “No, I am T-Bone!” Sadly, Booker didn’t want to play T-Bone on national TV. So, he became Spartacus. “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,”...

    It’s day two of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. Democrats are still annoying. The protesters are still unhinged. And everyone on the Left cannot seem to grasp what is reality: Brett Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed. Conservatives will have a 5-4 majority on the Court. You’ve lost. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) performed a great show, wanting to release confidential documents relating to racial profiling during Kavanaugh’s time in the Bush administration. He said he was willing to be expelled for releasing this document, which by the way, was already cleared for release by the committee and the Bush team....

    Conservative commentator Ann Coulter on Thursday mocked Democratic Sens. Cory Booker (N.J.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.), accusing them of "competing for Most Hysterical Woman" at confirmation hearings for President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "Cory Booker & Kamala Harris competing for Most Hysterical Woman at the Kavanaugh hearings" Coulter wrote in a tweet that was retweeted more than 11,000 times and liked more than 33,000 times as of Thursday afternoon. Harris and Booker, both considered 2020 Democratic presidential contenders in what will likely be a crowded field, said during Judicial Committee hearings that Kavanaugh would serve as a rubber...

    Well, it’s clear that Democrat Sen. Cory Booker is already running for President in 2020. He made a spectacle of himself today at the Confirmation Hearing of Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court. Booker made a big show of releasing “Committee Confidential” documents pertaining to Kavanaugh, saying he was willing to “suffer the consequences” of doing so. But as it turns out, Booker was told last night the documents in question were being made public! Booker flat out lied this morning as he put on his drama queen show for the cameras. Even CNN’s Brooke Baldwin called Booker out...

    An attempt by loudmouth liberal Sen. Cory Booker to hijack Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing Thursday blew up in his face big time. It all started when the obnoxious New Jersey Democrat threatened to commit an act of “civil disobedience” by releasing a confidential Kavanaugh email. “I am going to release the e-mail about racial profiling and I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” the arrogant senator, who had the gall to liken himself to Spartacus, bloviated during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday. While working for the administration of then-President George W....

    Earlier today 2020 presidential candidate and New Jersey Democrat Senator Cory Booker made quite the scene at Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. Daring Republicans to expel him from the Senate, Booker vowed to knowingly break Senate rules by releasing confidential Committee documents and accused Kavanaugh of having something hide.  DOCUMENTS:--Rs say the "committee confidential" docs were cleared for release before 4 a.m.--Ds say the docs were cleared for release at about 10:31 a.m. this morning--REGARDLESS, they were cleared for public release before Booker and Hirono posted them on their websites.— Seung Min Kim (@seungminkim) September 6, 2018 .@CoryBooker: “Apply the rule...

    Full title: ‘Confidential’ Kavanaugh emails posted by Cory Booker were cleared, despite dramatic claim of defying rulesIn yet another bizarre turn of events at Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Republicans have revealed that documents Democratic Sen. Cory Booker published Thursday morning in supposed defiance of Senate rules had already been cleared for release. “All of this drama this morning apparently was for nothing and it’s unfortunate,” Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told reporters after a chaotic start to the third day of Kavanaugh’s hearing. Earlier Thursday, Booker dramatically said he would “knowingly” violate Senate rules to release emails marked "committee...

    Day two of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings were once again riddled with theatrics. Guy will have a more in-depth analysis later, but let’s discuss Sen. Cory Booker’s nonsense stand to release documents supposedly relating to racial profiling that were deemed confidential. He called it his Spartacus moment. Give me a break—it was more 2020 posturing. He didn’t violate a Senate rule by doing this, which comes risks expulsion from the body, though he said he was willing to do so for the sake of the republic. There are not enough eyes to roll on this one. This set off more...

    At today’s third and final day of Judge Brett Kavanaugh‘s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, once again the argument over the quantity and origin of documents erupted, and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) faced off for a third day. As Booker delivered a lengthy set of remarks about his own actions, Grassley sharply smacked him as self-aggrandizing. Sen. Booker stated that he was going to release to the public one of the documents deemed confidential, despite the fact that this would violate rules. And then he said it again. And then some more. Sir, I...

    I need not dwell on the catastrophe of the Parkland, Florida mass murder last week. Such killings have become the new normal in America. In five of the six deadliest mass shootings of the past six years in the United States (Newtown, San Bernardino. Las Vegas. Sutherland Springs, and Parkland) the gunman used an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle. This is a weapon that was banned for individual ownership and usage by the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban. This 10-year ban was legislatively enacted by a Democratic President, Bill Clinton and a Democratic Congress.

    For years, Harvey Weinstein’s and Donald Trump’s private audiences could be divided into two types of (often) men: his vocal supporters and his silent endorsers. The outspoken supporters — whether casual misogynists or white supremacists — are henchmen who helped take down women’s careers or allies in Congress who are themselves proponents of a white nationalist agenda. Most critics of both Weinstein and Trump consider this “base” group the real problem. For they are the fringe who have somehow become the norm. But the people who really sustain misogyny and white supremacy are the quiet endorsers. Because they have the...
