Corey Booker Was Warned But Said ‘Bring It!’ – It’s Just Been Brought And He’s Paying BIG TIME!

Published

on

Conservative government watchdog group, Judicial Watch, just filed an ethics complaint against Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) in an effort to hold him accountable for his flagrant grandstanding and disregard for the rules.

Booker chose to publically release confidential Senate Judiciary Committee documents for political gain during the confirmation hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, detailed in a letter delivered to the chairman and co-chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics on Wednesday the nature of the complaint, stating:

“By publicly releasing Committee Confidential records, Sen. Booker appears to have violated provisions 5 and/or 6 of Rule 29 of the Standing Rules of the Senate (Rev. Jan. 24, 2013). We hereby request that the Senate Ethics Committee conduct a preliminary investigation into whether Sen. Booker violated Senate Rules by releasing Committee Confidential records through his social media accounts.”

Here is what the rules state:

“5. Any Senator, officer or employee of the Senate who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate, including the business and proceedings of the committees, subcommittees and offices of the Senate shall be liable, if a Senator, to suffer expulsion from the body; and if an officer or employee, to dismissal from the service of the Senate, and to punishment for contempt.

“6. Whenever, by the request of the Senate or any committee thereof, any documents or papers shall be communicated to the Senate by the President or the head of any department relating to any matter pending in the Senate, the proceedings in regard to which are secret or confidential under the rules, said documents and papers shall be considered as confidential, and shall not be disclosed without leave of the Senate.”

Fitton also detailed a series of admissions by Booker to support the assertions and provide proof that Booker did indeed willfully and knowingly break the rules.

The confirmation of Justice Brian Kavanaugh has been highly contentious and very ugly from the outset. Made so by paid protestors and rabble-rousers, along with congressional members of the Democratic Party that seem far more intent on obstruction, than they do on actually fulfilling the duties of the tasks allotted to the positions they were elected to fulfill.

Booker continued that tradition on day two of the hearings as he postured and bloviated for a dog and pony show of his own creation full of a lot of fanfare and over-inflated ego.

After referring to himself as “Spartacus” on Thursday morning, Booker declared dramatically that he was prepared to figuratively throw himself on his sword for the American people, stating that if he lost his elected position as senator for breaking the rules, then so be it.

Booker said: “I am, right now, before your process is finished — I am going to release the email about racial profiling. I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate.”

Much grandstanding and innuendo as to the exact nature of the emails abounded, making sure all the world knew, at least in Booker’s mind, that the email would be damning in nature and could potentially hurt the nomination of Justice Kavanaugh.

Despite being sternly rebuked by Grassley and later Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), Booker and his team of sycophants and “yes men” chose to ignore and released the documents in defiance of rules governing the process.

As Booker acted as Master of Ceremonies, the 2020 presidential hopeful was warned that threatening to release the emails in such a fashion constituted an action that could cause Booker to be removed from his position as a United States Senator.

Clearly, not taking the warning seriously, Booker followed up that bravado with this narcissistic commentary, stating: “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an, ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”

Booker then declared to one and all that he quite literally did not care if he lost his position. Resisting President Trump’s nomination of Justice Kavanaugh was the ultimate prize and for that, Booker was willing to risk it all.

However, all of that fanfare and posturing went to show that Justice Kavanaugh was AGAINST the racial profiling of people while working in the Bush White House. It was quite literally much ado about nothing.

According to The Daily Caller the email states:

“The fury over the documents led to a letdown for Democrats. The documents only demonstrated that in 2002, soon after the 9/11 attacks, Kavanaugh was against the racial profiling of people while working for the Bush White House. Kavanaugh told colleagues in the email that he favors “effective security measures that are race-neutral” for airports, and he is against “race-based” remedies for law enforcement in the aftermath of the attack.”

Trump: ‘Hard To Believe’ Obama Didn’t Know What FBI Was Up To In 2016

Published

on

President Trump said Wednesday that “it would certainly be hard to believe” that former President Barack Obama was unaware of what the FBI was up to in 2016. Well, of course, he knew. In fact, I would wager he orchestrated all of it. Obama is not dumb or incompetent. I’m almost certain he was pulling the strings and running the war room here.

Attorney General William Barr held a press conference today as the lightly redacted Mueller report was released. He put to rest the conspiracy theories and quelled the rabid Trump hatred by pointing out there was no collusion with the Russians or obstruction of justice. Trump tweeted out, “Game Over!” Indeed, it should be but the left will never give up this bone.

Trump praised Attorney General William Barr, saying “he’s grabbed it by the horn.” It would certainly seem that he has. The guy is fearless. Now, the left is calling for Mueller to have to testify over all this. No matter what they do it won’t change the fact there is no there-there and they are not going to get any dirt on Trump. Give it a rest already. Two years and millions of dollars later, they have nada.

From The Daily Caller:

“The conversation turned to several former Obama-era officials, most of whom are likely to be investigated in the coming months as Barr has pledged, and Trump touted the fact that he had called attention to them as “one of my great achievements, actually.”

“The president also had strong opinions when it came to whether or not Obama was aware of what the FBI was doing. “How is it possible that he didn’t know?” he asked. “I mean, we’re talking about pervasive, horrible things that were happening.”

“It would certainly be hard to believe that he didn’t know what was going on,” Trump concluded.”

That is the understatement of the century.

“Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era [Department of Justice] and FBI must answer for their misdeeds and the scam that they perpetrated against the American people. Justice will be served,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said. “President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again. Now the tables have turned, and it’s time to investigate the liars who instigated this sham investigation into President Trump, motivated by political retribution and based on no evidence whatsoever.”

From the Washington Examiner:

“That theme — “turning the tables” on the Democrats — or some variation of it, was what the Trump campaign ran with immediately after Attorney General William Barr delivered the Mueller report to Congress. Team Trump issued a fresh campaign video with that language as it replayed a series of prominent Democrats insisting over the course of the nearly two-year-long Mueller investigation that the president was guilty of collusion.

“Another staple of the campaign’s messaging: “Investigate the investigators.” The Republican National Committee, working in tandem with Trump 2020, was using similar language in series of press releases, as it emphasized that Russian meddling occurred while Barack Obama was president.

“Bottom line: Not only did Mueller confirm that there was no collusion, we also learned the full extent of how much the Obama administration failed to act while Russia messed with America’s electoral process,” read a missive from RNC rapid response director Steve Guest.”

Trump’s 2020 campaign will no doubt use the Mueller report as a political weapon and at this point, it is one of many that the Democrats will gleefully bludgeon themselves to death with in 2020. Forget hoisting yourself by your petard… these morons are TRYING to commit political suicide. It’s glorious to watch. Popcorn-worthy incompetence and radicalism even.

There is no doubt in my mind that the hunters are about to become the hunted here. I suggest they start with Barack Obama because he knew everything that went on and nothing happened during his administration without his blessing.

REPORT: HUD To Crackdown On Illegals Taking Advantage Of Public Housing

Published

on

Trump is a master at timing. His administration is proposing a new rule to try to block some 32,000 illegal immigrant-led families from claiming public housing assistance, saying it’s unfair to hundreds of thousands of Americans who are stuck on waiting lists. And it is. This is long overdue and I applaud Ben Carson and President Trump on this move.

HUD let Congress know this week that it intends to implement the new rule, kicking off a schedule of publication and notice and comment that could have the plan finalized later this summer. That’s if the darned Democrats don’t get in the way again… which they will. The plan would scrap Clinton-era regulations that allowed illegal immigrants to sign up for assistance without having to disclose their status.

From the Washington Times:

“Under the new Trump rules, not only would the leaseholder using public housing have to be an eligible U.S. person, but the government would verify all applicants through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, a federal system that’s used to weed illegal immigrants out of other welfare programs.

“Those already getting HUD assistance would have to go through a new verification, though it would be over a period of time and wouldn’t all come at once.

“We’ve got our own people to house and need to take care of our citizens,” an administration official told The Washington Times. “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime.”

“Illegal immigrants’ access to taxpayer-funded welfare and other benefit programs has long been controversial.

“It was considered a non-starter for Democrats when they wrote Obamacare a decade ago, and they excluded illegal immigrants from the health law. But the party’s attitude has changed and now some Democrats are pushing to expand the 2010 law to include unauthorized migrants.

“Polling, though, suggests Americans remain opposed to public benefits flowing to illegal immigrants, and President Trump has suggested it’s time to crack down on loopholes and interpretations that have allowed them to do so.

“In the case of Section 8 housing assistance, there are competing laws that have created confusion.

“In 2017 the HUD inspector general investigated illegal immigrants in New York who were using public housing under a special program for people with HIV or AIDS, and found that the government had never clearly stated whether housing was a federal public benefit subject to a 1996 ban for unauthorized migrants.

“Further complicating matters, Clinton-era rules specifically allowed “mixed” immigration status families to gain housing benefits. As long as one person in the home is an eligible U.S. resident, a family can qualify. The eligible person doesn’t need to be the head of the household, and could even be a minor child.

“The government created a system that allows people to apply for housing assistance as “non-contending,” meaning they decline to say whether they were legally in the country. Benefits are supposed to be adjusted on a pro-rated basis to account for those non-contenders.”

The immigrant-rights activists on the left are lining up to oppose this rule as I write this. They claim that penalizing mixed-status families means hurting the legal residents in those families, who are often young children. Too bad, they are here illegally. If they want to partake of American benefits, let them become legal immigrants first, not second. This same argument is being used to debate tax credits that, while claimed on behalf of citizen children, are paid to illegal immigrant parents.

Give the GOP credit… they’ve done their best to tighten these tax rules and regulations but the obstructionist Democrats have stopped them at every turn.

Trump’s administration is making the argument that lengthy backlogs for housing assistance make the new HUD proposal an obvious change. There are millions of people waiting on that list. One in four families who would qualify for housing assistance actually get the benefit right now. Most of those waiting for HUD help are likely poor seniors or people living with a disability. These people are being hurt by those that don’t belong here legally.

From The Daily Caller:

“HUD intends to roll out a proposal over the next few weeks that prohibits any illegal immigrant from residing in subsidized housing, even if they are not the direct recipient of the benefit. HUD currently estimates that tens of thousands of HUD-assisted households are headed by non-citizens.

“Families who are caught gaming the system by allowing illegal immigrants to stay with them either have to comply with the new rule or they will be forced to move out of their residence.

“Households will be screened through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or “SAVE,” program.

“An administration official told the Caller that this is a continuation of the president’s “America First” policies.”

Did you know that the average waiting time to get housing assistance in the US is now 26 months? That’s outrageous. In progressive enclaves such as Los Angeles, you can wait more than four years. All because of illegal immigrants being allowed to break our laws.

Even Cher took notice of the idiocy here in a tweet she put out this week: “I understand helping struggling immigrants,” she said, “but my city (Los Angeles) isn’t taking care of its own.” She pointed out the 50,000 citizens that are living on the streets and who are below the poverty line and go hungry. Many are veterans who served their country only to have no place to return to and no help was forthcoming. They should have just come across the border. “If my state can’t take care of its own … how can it take care of more,” Cher wondered. Good question.

Trump found himself in agreement with Cher for the first time. “This proposal gets to the whole point Cher was making,” an administration official told The Times. Yes, it does. Faster, faster pussycat.
