Cory Booker Just Insulted ALL Americans with Crazy Canada Rant

If this doesn’t have “Spartacus” in the hot seat, nothing will!

When election season is upon us, the behavior in Washington DC tends to hit peak absurdity.  

It’s almost as if these elections are some sort of near-annual full moon that arrives just in time to wreak havoc on the sensibilities of our elected officials.  In the run-up to the 2018 midterms, this bizarre behavior has been as worrisome as it has been entertaining, unfortunately, with folks like Nancy Pelosi and Cory Booker leading the charge.

Booker’s latest publicity stunt in this extended and contentious electoral season may just be his demise, however, after the showboating democratic senator just insulted every single American civilian.

Democratic New Jersey Senator Cory Booker claimed on Thursday that Canada was “out-Americaning” the United States because of the cost of college.

“Other people talking about college debt, you’ve got to be kidding me,” Booker said during a speech at Allen University in South Carolina, NTK Network reported.

“Every country we are competing with is driving down the cost of college,” Booker claimed. “Germany – it cost between zero and four percent of median income to go to college. Canada – I can’t stand how they’re out-Americaning us in Canada. Trudeau, give me a break, it costs about six to seven percent median income to go to college.”

“What does it cost in America?” Booker continued. “Fifty-two percent of median income. Why are other nations out-Americaning us? Why are they out-investing infrastructure the way we used to? Why are they out-investing in research and development the way we used to? Why are they out-investing in education the way we used to?”

What makes this egregious insult so damning, however, is not what Booker said, but that he, of all people, said it at all.

For many Americans, Booker is the quintessential “resistance” obstructionist whose grandstanding is a stall tactic as much as it is a publicity stunt.  With the focus shifting to the 2020 presidential race in a scant few months, Booker is almost certainly making such outlandish comments to further his public persona in anticipation of a run for the White House.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
