    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.

    Booker attended Menendez’s bribery trial on Wednesday in Newark to sit up front to support his Democratic colleague. If Menendez is convicted on any of these serious charges, will Booker return the cash? GotNews editor-in-chief Charles Johnson revealed in 2013 Booker did not live in Newark or at any of the Newark residences he owned. Multiple neighbors who spoke to Johnson said they believed the junior senator actually lived in New York, calling Booker a “liar” and a “fake mayor.” Fake news reporters smeared Johnson for years over his accurate reporting on both Booker and Menendez.

    Did you ever see the beginning of “Saving Private Ryan“? Cory Booker and those who fight against the proposed defunding of Planned Parenthood apparently know just how those soldiers must have felt. On Tuesday, Senate Democrats held a “People’s Filibuster” against the GOP’s proposed repeal of ObamaCare, livestreaming the event on Facebook. The rally included representatives from Planned Parenthood, the Center for American Progress, the American Federation of Teachers as well as elected officials like Senators Chris Van Hollen, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders and Jeff Merkley.

    Diagnosis! Democrats are digging their political grave! ... Keep digging As Republicans in Congress continue to craft a legislative solution to the disastrous Unaffordable Care Act, the Democrats continue to mislead its defenders with more and more dishonest and deceptive rhetoric. The latest installment comes from Senator Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), and is deserving of a complete deception diagnosis. By the way, Booker is considered by Democrats to be a future Democrat presidential candidate, and he won the un-coveted “Liberal Lunacy of the Week” last week on the Herman Cain Radio Show with the following litany of false statements:

    In reaction to liberal Senator Cory Booker's (D-N.J.) testimony against attorney general-nominee and fellow Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said Booker's remarks were "phony," that "he lied about Jeff Sessions," and that he acted like a "poor man's Obama." Clarke added that Booker first called Sessions his "friend" and then "he turned around and just stabbed him in the back" with his testimony. VIDEO: Sheriff Clarke on Sen.

    (Angry Patriot Movement) – A liberal senator who is as we speak attacking Jeff Sessions during his U.S. attorney general confirmation hearings has a massive scandal of his own unfolding. Senator Cory Booker is embroiled in a Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation (NWCDC) scandal involving allegations of massive kickbacks, Politico reports. Yesterday, Donald Bernard Sr., who was the senior projects manager at the company that ran Newark’s water infrastructure under the direction of then-mayor of Newark, New Jersey Cory Booker, pled guilty in federal court to accepting nearly $1 million in bribes from contractors. In December, Donald Bernard Sr.’s...

    Now testifies against his nomination as attorney general implying Sessions is a racist We’ve long heard about the collegial nature of the Senate. If you’re a senator, you treat your colleagues with respect and decorum unless your name is Harry Reid, and you give particular deference to colleagues who are nominated for cabinet positions. That doesn’t mean you automatically vote to confirm them, but you certain afford them a great deal of respect.

    As most Democrats try to peel themselves off the canvas today or simply choose to lie there inert for as long as it takes to not be seen or heard or to see or hear, sources close to U.S. Senator Cory Booker began quietly pounding the 2020 war drums for their guy. The Donald Trump stunned Hillary Clinton apparently had Booker on her VP short list, but opted instead for Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, who was supposed to pull Virginia and North Carolina for the doomed ticket. Kaine barely squeaked Virginia, but fumbled away NC, and appears hardly muscled up...

    PHILADELPHIA — As Cory Booker left a room full of Iowa Democrats, shaking hands and snapping selfies as he went, a man approached him and declared, “I hope to work for you in 2024!” During this week’s Democratic National Convention, Booker has helped his already-rising political star among Democrats, including from first-in-the-nation voting Iowa. The U.S. senator from New Jersey gave a well-received address to the convention earlier this week. On Wednesday morning he was similarly well received when he spoke to Iowa Democrats. Booker burst on the national scene years ago, first as mayor of Newark and then in...

    After watching Republicans invoke Hillary Clinton’s name almost 300 times in just four days last week at their convention, Democrats returned the favor on day one of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. The terms “Donald,” “Trump” or “Donald Trump” appeared in an ABC News transcript of the DNC 138 times unique times on Monday, including references to the Republican nominee as well as buildings, the university named for Trump and even the businessman’s line of steaks. Among notable speakers during the evening session of the convention, Trump was extremely popular. Major speakers such as New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker...

    On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal’s Laura Meckler and Colleen McCain Nelson broke the news that Hillary Clinton is vetting Elizabeth Warren for the vice presidency — but not vetting Bernie Sanders. In the process, they provided a shortlist of candidates that Clinton is considering: Beyond the Massachusetts senator, other prospective candidates include Labor Secretary Tom Perez; Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro; Sens. Tim Kaine of Virginia, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Cory Booker of New Jersey; Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and Reps. Xavier Becerra of California and Tim Ryan of Ohio, several Democrats said.

    Could U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy's rapid political ascent land him on a presidential ticket in November? A report in USA Today Monday listed Murphy as among those who would be interested in the vice presidential spot alongside former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. A Murphy spokeswoman declined to comment on the report. "Some progressives would also offset a weakness of Clinton — who will be 69 by Election Day — that she can’t compensate for with her résumé: her age. Murphy is 42," reads the story by Heidi M Przybyla, the paper's senior...

    Add Harry Reid to the list of troubles dogging Hillary Clinton as she stumbles toward the Democratic nomination for president. The powerful Senate minority leader delivered an unusual warning to Clinton on selecting a running mate, vowing to "do whatever I can" to stop her from choosing a Democratic senator from a state led by a Republican governor. “If we have a Republican governor in any of those states, the answer is not only no, but hell no and I would do whatever I can, and I think most of my Democratic colleagues here would say the same thing," Reid,...

    We hope Sens. Chuck Schumer, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand are giving that devastating new profile of resident Obama’s foreign-policy guru a careful read. Because they’ll learn how they were all played for fools on the Iran nuclear deal by that aide, Ben Rhodes — and the resident. That applies especially to Schumer, who will be the Senate Democratic leader come January. Booker and Gillibrand hewed to the party line in backing the deal. Schumer gave it a thumb’s-down — but then refused to lobby his colleagues to take his side. Sen. Bob Menendez, on the other hand, is looking...

    Rev. Al Sharpton will push America’s black churches to lobby in favor of the Iran nuclear deal, a new report says. Sharpton is launching his push backing President Obama’s pact with Tehran this weekend, according to The Huffington Post. “I am calling on ministers in black churches nationwide to go to their pulpits Sunday and have their parishioners call their senators and congressmen to vote yes on the Iran nuclear plan,” he said Friday. “We have a disproportionate interest, being that if there is a war, our community is always disproportionately part of the armed services, and that a lot...

    Twenty-seven senators want President Obama to block federal agencies and contractors from asking job applicants about prior criminal convictions. The senators, including 26 Democrats and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), want Obama to take executive action to "ban the box," referring to a question on job applications that asks if an applicant has any convictions. "We ask you to require federal contractors and agencies to refrain from asking job applicants about prior convictions until later in the hiring process," they said in a letter to Obama on Monday. "This policy would eliminate unnecessary barriers to employment for all job...

    Republican Sen. Rand Paul joined Democratic Sens. Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand Tuesday to propose legislation to legalize medical marijuana on the federal level. The bill, termed the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States Act, would move marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II, allow access for veterans and put a final stop to federal raids on dispensaries, among other things. This is the first time a medical marijuana bill has been introduced in the Senate, whereas the House has seen 15 pieces of legislation on marijuana reform in the last session of Congress, according to Marijuana.com. The move...

    The final numbers are not yet in, but it seems clear that the White House-orchestrated campaign to boycott Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress is collapsing. Despite two weeks of intense anti-Netanyahu leaks, insults, and pressure, the White House has so far succeeded in persuading only a handful of Democratic members of Congress to stay away from the speech. A grand total of two Senators and twelve Representatives have publicly announced that they are boycotting Israel’s prime minister. Assuming that those figures change only marginally in the days ahead, it will mean that 98% of the Senate and 95%...
