    Senators grilling CIA Director and Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo threw out a number of charged words in an attempt to taint his reputation. Senator Cory Booker used words like “anti-Islam,” “Islamaphobe,” and the other absurd and completely unfounded clichés to describe myself, my organization, ACT for America, and anyone else whose beliefs do not conform to their politically correct fantasyland that have worked with patriots like Mr. Pompeo to expose terrorist activities both within the United States and abroad. For the last fifteen years I’ve been traveling the world, exercising freedom of speech, as is my human right,...

    She added though “The Constitution gives Congress the power to authorize military action. If @realDonaldTrump wants to expand American military involvement in Syria’s civil war, he must seek approval from Congress – & provide a comprehensive strategy with clear goals & a plan to achieve them.” Her comments were echoed by Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, who said “I’m deeply concerned that President Trump continues to conduct military operations without any comprehensive strategy or the necessary congressional authorization.”

    CIA Director Mike Pompeo was pressed for his views on homosexuality Thursday during his confirmation hearing to be secretary of state. Pompeo, a former Kansas congressman, said he would treat State Department employees fairly regardless of their sexual orientation if he's confirmed, but did not directly answer questions from Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., about whether he views homosexuality as a perversion. "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 position," Pompeo said.
  • Senators to introduce new bipartisan bill to protect Mueller

    A group of bipartisan senators is introducing new legislation to limit President Trump's ability to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Christopher Coons (D-Del.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) will introduce the legislation, the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, on Wednesday. The legislation would let Mueller, or any other special counsel, receive an "expedited judicial review" within 10 days of being fired to determine if it was for a "good cause." If it was determined it wasn't, he would be reinstated. It would also codify regulations that only a senior Justice Department official can...
  • Booker, Gillibrand Want to Stymie Special Interest Spending, Except Labor and Ideological Groups

    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...

    Before the Nunes memo was released, Democrats, the media and its intelligence sources insisted that it would undermine national security, reveal tradecraft secrets and even get agents killed. Senator Cory Booker warned that it might be treasonously "endangering fellow Americans in the intelligence community." It was, but not in the way that he meant. The memo didn’t have anything resembling classified information it. Neither did the Grassley-Graham criminal referral which was heavily redacted to screen out all the “classified information.” What did the classified information consist of?

    U.S. Senator Cory Booker made a fool of himself on Tuesday of this week. In a hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee at which Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified, Booker loudly professed shock and indignation at the allegations that President Donald Trump had referred to certain countries as “s---holes.” Booker claimed to have shed “tears of rage” when fellow senator Dick Durbin called to tell him about the incident.This is nothing but craven posturing. As numerous writers have already noted, Democratic presidents -- including the generally dignified Barack Obama -- have said things as bad or worse....

    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.

    A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker's overt violation of Nielsen's right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week's White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up...

    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-N.J., was enraged during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday and admitted he was "seething with anger" over President Trump's alleged "shithole comments" and a Cabinet official's statement that she did not recall the incident. “I had tears of rage," Booker bellowed at Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in reference to when he first heard of Trump's "shithole countries" remark last week. "And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss the questions of my colleagues, with tens of millions Americans hurting right now because they're worried about what happened...

    Democratic Sen. Cory Booker seethed with anger over Trump’s alleged “shithole countries” comment during a hearing with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. During a hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Nielsen faced numerous questions about Trump’s alleged insistence that countries like Haiti and African countries are “shithole countries.” “I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting.” “For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues saying, ‘I’ve already answered that line of...

    "The Newark Police Division has been notified by the United States Capitol Police (USCP) regarding a threat on the life of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and his family members," Mayor Ras Baraka said in a statement on Saturday, according to ABC News. "As a result, members of the Police Division’s Executive Protection Unit have been assigned to provide security at the Senator’s residence in Newark," Baraka added. The mayor said the city is closely coordinating with USCP “to ensure Senator Booker is able to carry out his duties of serving New Jersey's residents in Congress in a safe manner."

    The Alabama win for Barack Obama’s candidate Doug Jones confirms our thesis that Obama is running the Democratic Party and the anti-Trump resistance. Obama, who recently compared President Trump to Hitler, recorded a robocall in support of the Alabama Democrat, calling him a “fighter for equality, for progress.” His notion of progress means suppressing the white vote and inciting black voters, who now believe by a margin of 72 percent that Trump should be impeached. The grassroots of the Tea Party, evangelical Christians and conservative Catholics in Alabama, couldn’t match the “Brown is the New White” strategy of Obama’s political...

    U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) recently called on President Donald Trump to resign due to the sexual abuse allegations that were thrown at him during the 2016 presidential campaign. As Booker said in a rally in Alabama before today’s Senate special election, “I just watched Al Franken do the honorable thing and resign. My question is — why isn’t Donald Trump doing the same thing? Who has more serious allegations against him, with more women who have come forward?”

    In 1992, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) admitted he once sexually assaulted a woman in a column he wrote for the Stanford Daily titled “So much for stealing second.” On February 19th, 1992, Booker, at the time masters student Stanford University who wrote a weekly Stanford Daily opinion column, penned the piece, in which he recounted his own experience with sexual assault. Booker began by noting that “Telling one’s own personal story is often the most powerful way to make a point, or, more importantly, to make people think,” before adding “When I hesitated in writing this column, I realized I...

    Three of President Trump's female accusers spoke with NBC's Megyn Kelly Monday about their experiences, all claiming he took advantage of them sexually. Former beauty pageant contestant Samntha Holvey alleged that Trump made her feel like "a piece of meat," Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist, claimed he forcibly kissed her, and Jessica Leeds, a traveling saleswoman, says he groped and kissed her on an airplane. The White House has dismissed them as "false claims," as Kelly reiterated on her show.These women's stories, however, were enough to convince Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) that the president needs to step down "immediately." Should...

    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.
