Published

on

Sen. Cory Booker has issued a call to the Democratic Party to step up and defeat New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew for his upcoming expected switch from being a member of the Democratic Party to the Republican Party.

Ironically, Van Drew actually endorsed Booker for president.

Booker is asking for donations to a fund that will be given to Van Drew’s congressional challenger.

“@VanDrewForNJ has put his re-election prospects ahead of his duty at a time of crisis in our country. Let’s bring courageous leadership back to NJ-02—please donate to support his eventual Democratic challenger,” Booker, a New Jersey senator, said in a tweet on Monday along with a link to a donation page.

Van Drew, a freshman congressman representing a swing district in New Jersey, is poised to become a Republican Party, in part because he opposes the impeachment of President Trump. Recent polling indicated he would face a tough time securing his party’s nomination for reelection in 2020, with 24% of Democratic primary voters in his district saying he should be reelected to Congress. Five of his senior aides resigned in protest on Sunday.

The congressman endorsed Booker’s presidential candidacy in February.

“While he and I don’t agree on every issue, he has shown time and again that he’s relentlessly focused on building bridges and working together to get things done for the people of New Jersey, and for every American,” Van Drew he said then. “His record of bipartisan accomplishment and message of bringing Americans together regardless of their backgrounds or political views is something this country desperately needs.”

The other 10 Democratic New Jersey members of Congress also threw their support behind Booker for president.

Ted Cruz Blocks Resolution Honoring RBG After Democrats Try Slipping Through ‘Dying Wish’

Published

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer thinks he’s a slick old billy goat, but he’s no match for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who blocked Schumer’s resolution to honor the recently deceased Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after he tried to slip in some language that would emphasize honoring her “dying wish” not to be replaced until after the inauguration. Hey, you know, we all make dying wishes. Most of us don’t get to see them come true. That’s just a part of life. Here’s more on this from the Daily Wire: “Republicans came to us with this resolution, but it ignored Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish — what she called her ‘most fervent wish’ — that she not be replaced until a new president is installed. So we simply have added it to the exact same text of the resolution that the Republicans gave us,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “All the kind words and lamentations about Justice Ginsburg from the Republican majority will be totally empty if those Republicans ignore her dying wish and instead move to replace Justice Ginsburg with someone who will tear down everything she built,” Schumer continued. He singled out abortion, gay marriage, union rights, and healthcare as the main issues he fears will crumble under a Trump-appointed justice. Cruz, in response, said, “Unfortunately, the Democratic leader has put forth an amendment to turn that bipartisan resolution into a partisan resolution.” “Specifically, the Democratic leader wants to add a statement that Justice Ginsburg’s position should not be filled until a new president is installed, purportedly based on a comment Justice Ginsburg made to family members shortly before she passed,” the Texas senator added. Ginsburg reportedly dictated to her granddaughter that her “most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”…

If you’re dying for some entertaining television, you’re going to finally get what you are craving next week when President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden go head-to-head during a televised debate, the first of the season. This, ladies and gentlemen, is going to be one for the ages that you won’t want to miss. Ahead of the debate, Brett O’Donnell, a top debate coach, has revealed a few things that might end up derailing Biden during this first debate. via Fox News: “[Biden] has not done any tough interviews in this campaign so far, whether or not he can handle the toughest of interviews, a presidential debate, being attacked by the president and also tough questions from Chris Wallace in that first debate remains to be seen,” O’Donnell told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday. “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace was selected to moderate the first presidential debate scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Case Western University and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. The format for the first showdown calls for six 15-minute-long segments – with each segment dedicated to a particular topic. Trump was interviewed by Wallace in July and Kilmeade pointed out that the president “basically went through” the list of debate topics “with the guy that’s going to be hitting him with the questions.” “I think that’s a tremendous advantage,” the debate coach said. “First of all, Chris Wallace is a tough interviewer, he is tough on everyone.” “The president has been through that now and so he can anticipate how Chris Wallace might approach this debate,” O’Donnell continued. No matter how you cut it, the president is far more prepared and mentally lucid for this debate than Joe Biden could ever hope to be in his current state. There are so many…
