Posted on 09/06/2018 11:39:41 AM PDT by Kaslin
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 Democrats whining and complaining about document releases and transparency when, again, everyone knows they’re not going to support this man. They’ve already made up heir minds, which is why the Senate GOP shouldn’t entertain their nonsense motions on this front. This clown show over documents lasted nearly an hour (via Fox News):

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker injected chaos into Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing Thursday by releasing confidential Kavanaugh emails with the backing of fellow Democrats in possible violation of Senate rules, calling it an act of “civil disobedience” and drawing condemnation from the Republicans on the committee.
“I am going to release the e-mail about racial profiling and I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” Booker said at the beginning of the third day of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.
After announcing plans to do so, Booker released 12 pages of emails -- which had been marked "committee confidential" -- online for the public to read. The emails included internal post-9/11 discussions surrounding issues of racial profiling.
The New Jersey Democrat said he would “knowingly” violate the Senate rules to release the emails. Some of the other Democrats on the committee expressed their support for Booker's effort.
Booker on Thursday drew attention to one 2002 email in particular from Kavanaugh that had the subject line “racial profiling.”
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I will happily work with any of my colleagues from across the aisle to go through the necessary steps and processes to try and get specific classified documents released to the public. #Kavanaugh #SCOTUS— Mike Lee (@SenMikeLee) September 6, 2018
In the end, it was cleared prior to its release by the Bush team and the committee, so nice acting job there, Cory. Also, the big bombshell in those documents only showed that Brett Kavanaugh is reasonable, mainstream, and against racial profiling post-9/11 (via Daily Caller):
The fury over the documents led to a letdown for Democrats. The documents only demonstrated that in 2002, soon after the 9/11 attacks, Kavanaugh was against the racial profiling of people while working for the Bush White House. Kavanaugh told colleagues in the email that he favors “effective security measures that are race-neutral” for airports, and he is against “race-based” remedies for law enforcement in the aftermath of the attack.
THIS - THE DEAL W/ KAVANAUGH DOCS: Judic. GOP staff just told us...
- Booker violated rules last pm b/c "racial profiling" email was then confidential.
- He then requst'd permiss. for it to be public.
- Committee + Bush team cleared it overnight.
- So was NOT violation this am.— Lisa Desjardins (@LisaDNews) September 6, 2018
So the documents that Cory Booker violated committee rules to release shows that Kavanaugh rejected the use of race or national origin in airport security screening and law enforcement generally in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 https://t.co/aNIkqWeN01 pic.twitter.com/bhyBG17uz2— Lachlan Markay (@lachlan) September 6, 2018
Sen. Cory Booker's BOMBELL:
Brett Kavanaugh didn't want to racially profile people after 9/11.
Bravo, Spartacus.https://t.co/gNfANpx6u6 pic.twitter.com/wyU8AJbQMB— Jason Howerton (@jason_howerton) September 6, 2018
Someone get Sen. Booker a tissue, his nose is bleeding from that rake he just jumped on.
...jeeeez Cory, why don’t you “take a knee”
And the Oscar for the Worst Performance at a Senate Confirmation Hearing goes to . . . the Jerk from Newark!
It's almost impossible to take a knee when your foot is in your mouth.
..in his case,I think it would be just the toes of someone else....
Cory Booker is a racist thug like most New Jersey politicians. He’s also dishonest — like most New Jersey politicians.
I really, really think after this freak show, someone needs to dump Hillary emails. ALL. OF. THEM.
NOW Levi Strauss is acting like a bunch of Dick’s! That is, like Dick’s Sporting Goods, if you recall.
Short version: Lying Liar Who Lies Corey Booker pretended he was putting his senate seat in jeopardy by releasing today a “confidential” email that had been cleared to be released last night.
In other words, this is “T Bone Part Two” for Corey, the Melodramatic Lying Sack of Sh*t. He must be a gargantuan DUMBASS to think he can get away with ridiculous lies like these.
Bwah hah, this is great fodder for the Rat primaries!!
Hello? Cory? Yeah, Phil Knight here.... no, that's Knight, K-n-I-g-h-t... yeah, that's right, Nike...
The email made the opposite of the point Booker sought to make.
Kavanaugh isnt a racist!
The Dems stepped in doo-doo again and ended up looking like fools.
In three days worth of hearings, they havent been able to lay a glove on Kavanaugh.
They deeply frustrated.
For those who don't want to click on it,
"There are precisely 57 communists in the defense department!"
He's a lying scumbag, but you knew that.
He was obviously playing the race card by suggesting he would violate Senate rules by exposing a confidential email that Kavanaugh had written a number of years ago on the subject of "racial profiling." If I had to guess, Kavanaugh's email which Booker was talking about related to law enforcement and radical Muslim terrorists, and was not "discriminatory" in regard to blacks or Hispanics or anyone else.
He was the prototype for the “New Young moderate Black leader”.
I wonder how much of that was colored by his Newark Mayoral opponent Sharpe James’ in hindsight ridiculous attacks that he was a closet Republican.
In the end these internecine contests between the likes of James and Booker (and Obama and Bobby Rush) were just about slick young BS artists looking to take jobs from old codgers. The only real difference between them is that the younger generation, interested in winning high office, markets itself to Whites in a way that the older ones never did.
He may have been cordial once but he was always a dumb bunny.
Typical democrat drama queen. Probably uses Maxine Waters’ Tampax when he’s not “performing” in the Senate Drama Club.
