  • Cory Booker giddy as Democrats vote against 'defund the police': GOP senator 'has given us the gift'

    A fired-up Sen. Cory Booker praised GOP Sen. Tommy Tuberville for forcing a vote Tuesday in the Senate on defunding the police, saying he wanted to "hug" his GOP colleague for putting to rest "scurrilous" accusations that Senate Democrats want to strip law enforcement of money. Tuberville, R-Ala., authored an amendment to Democrats' $3.5 trillion budget resolution that would decrease federal funds to localities that defund the police. In teeing up the politically charged vote, Tuberville said in a floor speech that "opposing my amendment is a vote in support of defunding the police and against the men and women...

    A Black man who said a group of white men assaulted him and threatened to “get a noose” at a southern Indiana lake is facing criminal charges more than a year after the confrontation that earlier led to charges against two of the alleged attackers. Vauhxx Booker, a local civil rights activist and member of the Monroe County Human Rights Commission, was charged with misdemeanor trespass and felony battery for his involvement in last year’s Fourth of July incident at Lake Monroe, according to court documents filed Friday by a special prosecutor in the case.

    Former Kentucky state Rep. Charles Booker will launch a bid to unseat Sen. Rand Paul, he announced. The 37-year-old rose to national prominence last year when he narrowly lost the Democratic primary to take on Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to Amy McGrath, a former Marine combat pilot who ran as a moderate and was defeated. At the same time that Booker was campaigning, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, a black woman, in Louisville, Kentucky, was shot and killed in a botched police raid that sparked outrage and racial justice protests nationwide.

    Thursday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) sounded off on the Senate impeachment of former President Donald Trump. Booker, during CNN’s “New Day,” said he believes “we do not need more evidence to come to the conclusion that Trump violated his oath of office.” He pointed to Trump’s rally, his “prolific tweeting,” and then subsequent silence as a group of his followers were hunting for former Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

    Two young men grow up in the same neighborhood and spend four years together at the same high school taking the same classes from the same teachers and playing on the same winning football team. Both are good students and dedicated, hardworking athletes. But one is a journeyman offensive lineman, while the other is an all-state quarterback. In their senior year, they both decide they want to attend the same prestigious private university that plays in the Football Bowl Subdivision — and where the tuition and board and room exceed $60,000 per year. The university accepts them both. But the...

    Two children were struck by stray bullets and killed inside their home Tuesday night in Trenton, New Jersey. The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m. on Mulberry Street. Police say the brothers, 16-year-old Gustavo Perez and 8-year-old Johnny Perez, were on the second floor when the shooting began. Trenton’s mayor and police director called for unity and for more police action. “The short end is that we just don’t know what happened. Police are piecing that together, but we really need to gather as a community,” Mayor Reed Gusciora said. “I am demanding my officers to stop riding past crime,” Trenton...

    All the bells and whistles went off in my head when Mazie Hirono asked Judge Barrett, "Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?" She claims to ask this of every nominee -- someone should look that up. And then Cory Booker asked the judge if she condemns white supremacy. No, folks. This hearing is not just a four-day infomercial for Biden/Harris. Instead, it's more likely a set-up. They had to anticipate she'd answer "no" to the first question and...

    Applications for first-time gun owners in New Jersey have surged fourfold during the national race riots of summer 2020, with residents of the notoriously anti-gun state looking to arm themselves in response to national events. New Jersey arguably has the most restrictive and draconian state gun control laws in the country. The state requires permits for gun ownership that are submitted to towns and cities, with the state police having the authority to deny gun ownership on critics argue are simply arbitrary grounds. The Burlington Country Times is reporting that some New Jersey municipalities have reported a whopping 1,000% increase...

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) called President Donald Trump a “bully,” adding that was “about to get knocked out” in the November election by the Biden-Harris ticket. Anchor Jake Tapper asked, “So let me ask you, President Trump and his campaign have been floating this false, completely false notion that Senator Harris, who was born in Oakland, California, in 1964, and is an American, may not be eligible to be vice president. Were you surprised when they started to do that?”

    Friday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) weighed in on a poll showing 74% of Americans see George Floyd’s death while in Minneapolis police custody as a sign of a broader problem in the country. Booker said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that black Americans have a “consciousness” that they “do not yet have equality under the law.” “By the time we witnessed that Rodney King verdict where somebody was so viciously, savagely beaten, I just remember just losing it. I was in the streets marching peacefully and felt such anger,” Booker recalled. “And the challenge is if I pulled out that column...

    Lynching is still not a federal crime in the United States, despite nearly 200 attempts by lawmakers to make it so. Now, as the nation grapples with the death of George Floyd, emotional debate broke out on the Senate floor as one lawmaker stood in the way of allowing the historic passage of a bill that would outlaw lynchings: Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.The House has already passed an anti-lynching legislation, which is awaiting approval in the Senate. But Paul has said he is concerned it could allow more minor altercations to be punishable as lynchings. "Bruises could be considered lynching,"...

    Actress Rosario Dawson said she voted for Bernie Sanders on the same day her boyfriend and former presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker endorsed Joe Biden. In an Instagram post on Monday night, the “Men in Black II” actress and activist, who was a surrogate for Sanders in 2016, said she was proud to support the 78-year-old socialist senator from Vermont. “I got to vote for Bernie again and I did,” Dawson wrote in the lengthy post. “Whoever it is that you’re supporting I hope that you are doing it consciously, with heart and with a ballot. Talking about things helps...

    The actress Rosario Dawson has come out in a wide-ranging interview touching upon her latest projects, activism and her relationship with former Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker. In the interview with Bustle, Dawson clarified that a 2018 Instagram post about Pride, in which she stated that she was "sending love" to her "fellow LGBTQ+ homies," was mistaken as her coming out. “People kept saying that I [came out] ... I didn’t do that,” she told Bustle. “I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now.” While Dawson did not...

    Actress Rosario Dawson is adding intrigue to rumors about her sexuality. In an interview with Bustle, the star of “Briarpatch” clarified a 2018 Instagram post in which she paid homage to the LGBTQ community during Pride month. Many fans read between the lines and assumed that the social-media update was, in effect, her coming out. Dawson — who has been in a relationship with Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) since, she said, October 2018 — told the women’s website, “People kept saying that I [came out] . . . I didn’t do that. I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come...

    A group of 15 Democratic senators wrote to 11 major banks last week asking them to ban funding oil and gas drilling or exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. "The scale of your banks’ assets individually, let alone together, give you the ability to drive change in protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and in shifting towards a U.S. financial sector that effectively analyzes and plans for climate risks," the senators wrote. "We respectfully urge you to reassess your current environmental and climate policies and update them to include a prohibition on funding for oil and gas drilling or...

    Democrat Cory Booker dropped out of the presidential race Monday, ending a campaign whose message of “being the black guy” failed to resonate in a Democratic party that’s clearly racist. Senator Elizabeth Warren has stated, “With Booker out, I’m the last minority in the race.” Warren, who has grabbed headlines for promising trillions of dollars in other people’s money to minorities in order to buy their votes, is ecstatic to be alone in the race against white people. “Democrats have kicked out the Latinos Beto and Castro, the Wakandan-American Kamala Harris, and now Cory Booker. It’s clear that if we...

    Those racist Democrat voters just eliminated another protected minority candidate. – A year ago today, the conventional wisdom among the D.C./New York City pundit class held that the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination would most likely end up being won by one of Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O’Rourke or Cory Booker. As of today, all three formerly leading candidates are out of the race with the exit Monday morning that Booker is done. Yeah, the Senator from New Jersey only officially announced he was “suspending” his campaign, but c’mon, we all know he’s done, and so does he. And thus, those...
