On Friday, January 31st, 2018. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) threw his hat in the presidential ring.
“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame,” Booker said.
This is 2008 all over again. The promise of hope and change, free medical for all, if you like your doctor, you can keep him, the promise of a high GDP and everyone gets a job.
We’ve heard all these promises before, they ring an all to familiar bell. The socialism bell.
When Booker, AKA Spartacus made that statement above, do you think he remembered the $100 million gift donated by Mark Zuckerberg to the Newark school district on his behalf?
If the squandering of that money is any indication as to how Booker manages large sums of money, we can rest assured this is how he’ll manage big government spending.
On many occasions in the Senate, Booker has made a complete fool of himself, and all for public attention no less. Beclowing himself while mansplaining to female DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in January of 2018. A one-sided exchange where he blasted Neilsen when he didn’t get the response he was looking for when he asked about a comment Trump made calling some countries “shithole countries”.
Booker, raising his voice at Nielsen. “Your silence and amnesia is complicity.” and also quoting Martin Luther King Jr. “nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
Not too long after, we were graced with his Spartacus moment. The Senator made his Spartacus comments during the confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. “this is the closest I’ll get to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.” The Senator claims he was standing up for justice by releasing classified emails written by Brett Kavanaugh about the use of “racial profiling” at airports in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Funny thing is, the emails were declassified before his drama queen antics.
The New Jersey senator craves attention, whether it’s tweeting nonsense to his 4 million Twitter followers, private messaging strippers on Twitter or making up stories about instances that never happened from the past, he loves it. Booker is well known in Jersey for his fables and tales, one notable story he loves to tell is about his imaginary friend T-bone, a drug dealer and gang banger who threaten Booker’s life one moment and cried on his shoulder the next.
After Booker announced in a video his plans to run for president, the media was in a flurry to see who could top the most favorable article promoting the senator. Being a black man, the media has no other choice but to follow the social justice norms and tow the party line, meanwhile tossing out all critical an evidence-based reporting.
After eight years of Obama and four years of him blaming George Bush for everything under the sun, Obama gave us a failed economy with a poor 2.6 GDP and devastated the Healthcare System with his ACA
Trump ran his presidential campaign promising jobs under a better economy and law and order. Trump hasn’t kept all of his promises, but the promises he did keep has made conservatives proud. He delivered!
“Cory Booker is a political opportunist who left Newark ridden with crime and an ‘emblem of poverty,’ ” RNC spokesman Michael Ahrens said in a statement. “Even the liberal base thinks he’s a disingenuous self-promoter, and his embrace of policies like higher taxes, single-payer health care, and government-guaranteed jobs make him totally out-of-touch with most Americans.”
Don’t expect any down the middle reporting from the mainstream media when it comes to any Democrat who announces their bid for the presidency, many in the media have shown themselves, the masks are off and true journalism is dead.
