The life & times of Cory Booker & his field trip off the Democrat Plantation

There exists in this universe a wonderful chap named Cory Booker, who is very well educated with degrees from Stanford and Yale Law School.  His claim to fame is his almost complete awesomeness.  He’s young, resourceful, intelligent, and in the minds of those that he has helped; Booker is a hero.  Some of his exploits include: rescuing his neighbor from a house fire, and leading the city of Newark through it’s first murder free month and a significant drop in violent crime.

Since 2006 Booker has served as mayor of this hamlet in the northeast known as Newark.  This is no fairy tale spot.  Tough crime, joblessness, declining population, and a failed education system are just some of the challenges Booker has faced down as a City Councilman and now Mayor.  

Since winning election, Booker has emerged as a rising star in the Democrat party with possible aspirations of a run for Governor of New Jersey on the horizon.  Booker appears on cable news shows offering his opinions and support of President Obama and his policies on a regular basis.  

So it was a true suprise when Booker expressed opposition to the Obama campaign’s latest tactic of attacking private equity firms, namely Bain Capital, in their quest to slow Romney’s rise in presidential polling.

Cue the Democrat Machine.  In the mainstream media, there was laughter as pundits on the left began to call Booker out.  What is Booker doing criticizing the Obama Campaign?  Yo B!  Have you lost your Dem. talking points?

Behind the scenes, David Axlerod and party leadership pressured Booker to adjust his story, to curtail his comments.  Orders from on high?  Stick to the talking points we gave you son.  Booker’s response was to immediately walk back the comments by shooting a hostage video.  

Essentially, Booker not only walks back his previous comments on how attacking private equity firms is nauseating and wrong.  Booker now encourages said attacks and calls Romney dishonest.  A complete 180.  So, in the 24 hour news cycle, this story garnered tons of laughs, a hashtag game on Twitter (#FreeCoryBooker) and that was that.

Or was it? The latest news is that Bookers long time staffer and Communications Director Ann Torres has resigned.  Although she claims the split is amicable, one has to wonder why now?  Only two credible scenarios present themselves in this tale.  Torres is being forced out, falling on her sword so to speak, because someone has to pay for Bookers attempt at having an opinion of his own and the audacity to speak it on TV.  Or Torres is leaving because there’s no way she’s going to sit by and watch the soul of a self made man like Booker drain out at the behest of the Democrats.

Torres released the following statement: 

“It has been a pleasure to serve in this administration for six years, and as a Newarker, there is no greater reward than to work for the city that you love,” Torres’ statement said. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with an amazing team, and wish the mayor the best.”

Torres’s departure sounds the bell for others in the Democrat party that may be considering a stroll off the plantation.  Don’t do it.  Heads will roll and you will be forced to shoot an uncomfortable hostage video in which you walk back your comments and lose your manhood on camera for thousands to see. 

Or, a trusted friend and advisor who was integral to your rise to power and the success of your office will be terminated like so much trash.  Either way, on the left you will not stray from the talking points.  You will not express a dissenting opinion.  

To all of this I ask: Had enough yet Cory?  You don’t owe Obama anything.  This is still America, and you can still be free.

Blogburst For Freedom And Against Brett Kimberlin

Thanks to a short, compelling video by Lee Stranahan (below), in preparation for Friday’s Blogburst, more and more people are beginning to learn the story of convicted felon, Brett Kimberlin. Kimberlin is a Progressive activist, closely aligned with some of the movement’s biggest names and donors.

Kimberlin threatened Robert Stacy McCain and his family, so much so, that they are now in hiding.

To understand the significance of what’s playing out around the Conservative blogosphere you should read this post by Michelle Malkin:

For conservatives online, it is also a time-tested truism that there is great strength in numbers. When bloggers, activists, video content creators, and Twitter users on the Right unite behind common principles — fighting jihadi propaganda, exposing corruption, calling out media bias, following the progressive money trail, holding the Republican Party’s feet to the fire, etc. — we can accomplish uncommon things.

a free speech moment by Ed Morrisey of Hot Air;

Looks like that time has come around for some of our friends in the blogosphere. Aaron Walker, Patterico, Liberty Chick, and Stacy McCain have written extensively about a man named Brett Kimberlin and connections to violent political action. I have only followed the story at a distance, and don’t hold myself out to be an expert on the subject. The result of their investigations has prompted a flurry of legal harassment in some cases, and worse in others. Today, the Boss Emeritus — who knows a thing or two about Unhinged reaction to free speech — rallies the blogosphere in defense of our friends:

ROSSLYN SMITH ON Stacy McCain, Brett Kimberlin, and the Tides Foundation. Kimberlin also got money from the Streisand Foundation, but apparently he’s never heard of the Streisand Effect. . . .

No doubt there are more posts and links out there, with still more to come. Friday, Conservative bloggers must put aside petty and personal agendas to stand up united as one in the name of free speech, liberty and against over-the-line and unacceptable political attacks and tactics. And if the Left doesn’t get it, we will get around to shaming them into it, too.

Enough is enough – and Kimberlin is long past too much to tolerate, or turn away from in ignorance. It’s well beyond time we draw a line in the sand when it comes to Brett Kimberlin. And a large number of bloggers, whether each is seen as significant, or not, is precisely the way to do it.

I’m in. If you blog, Tweet, use Facebook, or social media of any type to support conservative and Republican politics, or just free speech, reasonable political argument and liberty, you need to be in on it, too. If you support those things, Brett Kimberlin stands against everything you believe in both in theory and practice. And it’s time for his twisted combination of scam and petty self-indulgent but genuine form of political terrorism to come to an end.

Colin Powell dances around giving Obama another endorsement

It was so disheartening to see Colin Powell give in to the politics of race and endorse Barack Obama last election cycle.  When asked if he would endorse again on Fox News, he was quite reticent, to the point of tapdancing around the issue.

Powell was firm in saying that he would not endorse Obama right now.  I remember seeing Powell as a leader in the Republican party, a voice of reason.  Once he endorsed Obama, his standing was diminished, because ostensibly, he should have valued McCain’s experience over Obama’s lack of the same.  Now, many are interested in his views after three years of failed policies from the Obama Administration.  I’ll continue to hope against hope that he returns to reason.

Democrats say that spending is down under Obama: WHAT?

Now if you look at that last graph and say – wow, those blue bars look like they’re HIGHER than the ones before them… doesn’t that mean Obama isspending MORE?! Well, you’re an idiot, sir or madame, or anything in between or beyond.

At least, Obama and the Democrats hope you are on election day.

If you take on the Union- You’re going down.

Kristi is a teacher who dared to support Governor Walker and his common sense job saving reforms. Her reward for exercising her right to free speech and association? Having her children’s school published, her husbands work place published and a slew of hate mail.  This is significant because the perpetrators are other teachers.  Liberals that preach tolerance and demand acceptance for every form of deviance known to man.  

Woe to you if you are a Republican and support Governor Walker! Because you cannot be a teacher if you do.  

Is this really the way that we want teachers to feel?  Intimidated and afraid to speak their own minds?  Imagine if she was being treated this way because she was black or gay?  Ellen Degeneres would name a campaign after her and have her on the show.  Millions would mobilize in support of her right to be what ever she wanted without judgment being passed upon her for said views.

This is a travesty of monstrous proportions that should have each of us in a state of fear.  If she can be bullied and threatened by her union for simply supporting a Republican, no one is safe.  

This School Board member comes out against WEAC as well.  It’s a matter of choice, which apparently ALL Democrats are in favor of.

Obama campaign spends $159,000 on Documentary,

and only finds 17 minutes of positive stuff to tout after almost 4 painful years.  The economy is still in the tank and the kool aid drinkers have begun to notice that gas is well over $4.00 a gallon.

Big money is drying up on the campaign trail.  His biggest supporters are indvertently wreaking havoc by offering honest and scathing opinions of his campaign strategy.  What to do in a situation like this? Well, this:

And we were wondering why he keeps talking about wars on women, and other nonsense?  Because he has to…  Nothing to see here folks.  Move along…
