The person who introduced a slavery reparations bill in the Senate stands zero chance of winning the Democrat nomination for president in 2020.

Maybe that’s why he’s trying to make waves?

Otherwise, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has to know he’ll never get this piece of legislation through – maybe not even with a Democrat-controlled executive branch.

From Fox News:

Sen. Cory Booker on Monday introduced a bill that would study the possibility of reparations for descendants of slaves, embracing a push that recently has caught the interest of fellow 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.

The senator from New Jersey said Monday that “this bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country. It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed.”

The measure is a Senate companion to a bill introduced in the House of Representatives in January by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, which if passed into law would set up a commission to study the impact of slavery and continued discrimination against black Americans and make recommendations on reparation proposals for the descendants of slaves. The legislation was first introduced 30 years ago by then-Rep. John Conyers of Michigan.

During a confirmation hearing for a judicial nominee, Booker applied a religious test. That, of course, would be unconstitutional.

Unfortunately for Cory, Sen. Ted Cruz was close by.

Cruz wasn’t about to let Cory get away with disrespecting the constitution.

From PJ Media:

Booker seized on Rao’s 2008 article opposing the Supreme Court decision Lawrence v. Texas, which decriminalized homosexual activity. He then directly asked her, “Are gay relationships in your opinion immoral?”

Rao: “I am not sure the relevance of that.

Booker: “Do you think gay relationships are immoral?

Rao: “I do not.

Booker: “Do you believe they are a sin?

Rao: “My personal views on any of these subjects are things I would put to one side.

Booker: “So you’re not willing to say whether you believe it is sinful for a man — for two men — to be married?

Rao: “No.

Booker: “Excuse me?

Rao: “My response is that these personal views are ones that I would put to one side. Whatever my personal views are on the subject, I would faithfully follow the precedent of the Supreme Court.

Enter Cruz:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slammed Booker for his line of questioning, arguing that questions about what is sinful should be utterly off-limits in confirmation hearings. He cited the Constitution’s ban on a religious test for public office, and declared, “I don’t believe this is a theological court of inquisition.”

Cruz: “The Senate Judiciary Committee should not be a theater for twisting nominees’ records or views, nor should it be an avenue for persecution. We have seen a growing pattern among Senate Democrats of hostility to religious faith. I was deeply troubled a few minutes ago to hear questioning of a nominee asking your personal views on what is sinful. In my view that has no business in this committee.

Cruz: “We have also seen Senate Democrats attack what they’ve characterized as religious dogma. We have seen Senate Democrats attack nominees for their own personal views on salvation. Article Six of the Constitution says there should be no religious test for any public office.

Biden Thinks 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic Occurred In 1916 or 1917, Keeps Talking Gibberish

Video of the day??

He’s gone, folks. Joe Biden is completely, entirely, undeniably gone – completely out of it. His mind no longer functions in the same manner as a same human being. And it’s sad to see. Here’s a brief history of the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, via CDC: The 1918 influenza pandemic was the most severe pandemic in recent history. It was caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin. Although there is not universal consensus regarding where the virus originated, it spread worldwide during 1918-1919. In the United States, it was first identified in military personnel in spring 1918. It is estimated that about 500 million people or one-third of the world’s population became infected with this virus. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States. During a Sunday interview, Biden blabbered, “We cannot let this, we’ve never allowed any crisis from the Civil War straight through to the pandemic of 17, all the way around, 16, we have never, never let our democracy sakes second fiddle, way they, we can both have a democracy and … correct the public health.” VIDEO: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1246965704177451009?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1246965704177451009&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-speaks-gibberish-forgets-1918-spanish-flu-pandemic-occurred-video%2F Here’s more Biden craziness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/SaraCarterDC/status/1246990076283764737 https://twitter.com/OtherJoeBiden/status/1245909881149931520 https://twitter.com/OtherJoeBiden/status/1246925807626444801 https://twitter.com/BRANDONWARDELL/status/1246947221016199168 https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/1246953599244144642 https://twitter.com/TeamTrump/status/1246944975272710145 https://twitter.com/AndreiJamal/status/1246992031479672838 WATCH: https://twitter.com/TimRunsHisMouth/status/1232322190625951745?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1232322190625951745&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fuh-oh-joe-biden-just-forgot-he-was-running-for-president-video%2F Former White House Dr. Ronny Jackson gave his two cents… https://twitter.com/RonnyJackson4TX/status/1232414578979540992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1232414578979540992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fformer-white-house-doctor-bidens-mind-scary-might-need-some-testing-on-cognitive-abilities REACTIONS: https://twitter.com/Ghentite/status/1232328424322191361 https://twitter.com/PlatzLair/status/1232323077448634369 https://twitter.com/JimConn04125141/status/1232322780672249856 My goodness, Joe.

Watch: Reporter Demands to Know Why Trump Won’t Close Grocery Stores, Fast Food Restaurants

The answer should be obvious…

People need grocery stores and restaurants to remain open during this coronavirus pandemic in order to, you know, eat. For most people, even liberals, that is airtight logic. One reporter, though, sees things a little differently. He wants to know why some businesses are closed down and others are not. From The Daily Wire: A reporter in the White House press corps pressed President Donald Trump on Sunday on why he has not directed a shutdown of all businesses nationwide, including grocery stores. Owen Jensen of EWTN asked, “There are grocery stores that are open, fast food places. Why even take a little chance? Just shut it all down.” VIDEO: https://twitter.com/CurtisHouck/status/1246953958914035715?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1246953958914035715&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Freporter-presses-trump-to-shutdown-grocery-stores-fast-food-restaurants Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/LizRNC/status/1246978683740569600 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246985732876533761 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246943009796542464 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246958570500952064 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246981628036931585 https://www.instagram.com/p/B-cwR4OF8HL/ https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246958845093539840 https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/1246958357837201410 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246981004167974912 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246967856232910849 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246965733164077058 https://twitter.com/BroBible/status/1246958315269165057 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1246963819357880320
