As J. Marsolo expressed it today in American Thinker: “Cory Booker started his 2020 presidential campaign by stabbing Jeff Sessions in the back and front on nationwide TV.
“In 2015, Sen. Jeff Sessions and Sen. Cory Booker introduced and passed legislation to award the highest civilian honor to the participants of the 1965 civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery.
“On January 11, 2017, Booker returned the favor to Senator Sessions by appearing before the Judiciary Committee to “testify” against Sessions as the attorney general nominee. “Testify” is the wrong verb. Booker gave a pompous speech, unsupported by any facts, that Sessions would not as attorney general support the rights of women, blacks, gays, etc.
“Booker, Democrat senator from New Jersey, explained his unprecedented appearance to testify against a fellow senator by saying: In a choice between standing with Senate norms and standing up for what my conscience tells me is best for our country, I will always choose conscience and country.”[end]
Hear’s what he said about his collaboration with Sen. Jeff Sessions last year…
This may be another first by having the word “conscience” in the same sentence as “New Jersey Democrat.”
The next black president? Well, Mr. Booker isn’t quite as shameless as Obama, but he’s pretty darned close. I guess Booker figures if it worked for “my man” Barack, it’ll work for him, but frankly, I think we’ve had quite enough of affirmative action presidents. At least for another hundred years or so.
Booker could have given his speech on the Senate floor before the vote on Sessions’s nomination. Instead, he chose to grandstand before the committee and national television. It is clear that Booker wants to run in 2020, and this was his opening campaign speech. Donald Trump has not yet been inaugurated, but Booker is already running.
He is starting early to get the campaign donations from George Soros, the NAACP, Hollywood, Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, the Congressional Black Caucus, and the rest of the left-wing Democrat base.
Booker should fit nicely with his corrupt base. He lied about Sessions, broke over 200 years of Senate tradition, and showed he will do and say anything to win.
Contrast his behavior, with that of William Smith, who has known, worked with, and esteemed Sen. Sessions for more than twenty years. Take a look and listen…
Following his eight-year disaster, Obama the Clown Prince of Fools has assured us it will be a long, long time before We the People elect another affirmative action, racist empty-suit as president.
New Jersey is one of the most corrupt states in the Union (as is Illinois for that matter) which is enough to never vote for a politician from New Jersey or Illinois for national office ever again. Cory Booker just confirmed it. And another thing – How good a job did young Cory do as a mayor in NJ?
Following those laudable words of respect last year towards Sen. Sessions, compared to Booker’s testimony against the confirmation today, if there was even a shred of decency left in the Senate, a letter of censure would be entered into the record for that scurrilous attack on another member, made at a totally inappropriate time. Simply pure political grandstanding aimed at maximum media exposure.
As for the comments made by Mr. William Smith, he absolutely eviscerated Booker, and without mentioning other names seated nearby, brought them all to task for their outrageous behavior. Now THAT’S a black presidential demeanor, if ever I saw one! Politicians like Cory Booker, Hillary Clinton and Obama don’t ‘get’ the results of the last election.
We the People want jobs, security and less overall government. Booker and his ilk just want another plantation, the difference being he and the black alphabet soup of plantation owners like the NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, and all the other frauds get to run it.
Now that the Trumpit has sounded, not any more. Semper Fi !!
