Fact Check: Cory Booker Did Not Sing Top Gun Tune While Sexually Engaged with Drunken Teen

By Phil Stilton

 

WASHINGTON-When telling a good story, often the story is good enough.  Sometimes, the facts behind that story don’t match up to the story, but the strength of the story often overshadows the actual facts.

Such is the case in a story written in 1992 by a young Stanford University Student, Cory Booker.

Fast forward to 2018 and Cory Booker is now a United States Senator clamoring for truth and justice.

Back in 1992, young Booker was just experimenting in social justice.

“New Year’s Eve 1984 I will never forget. I was 15. As the ball dropped, I leaned over to hug a friend and she met me instead with an overwhelming kiss,” Booker reminisced about his sexual encounter eight years earlier.

Again, keep in mind, 1984 was only 8 years prior to his 1992 editorial. Read the rest of this entry »

Cory Booker: So much for stealing second

Originally published in The Stanford Daily SignalFebruary 19, 1992

Telling one’s own personal story is often the most powerful way to make a point, or, more importantly, to make people think. When grandiose statements entrenched in politically correct terminology are made, many may listen but few will hear.

When I hesitated in writing this column, I realized I was basking in hypocrisy. So instead I chose to write and risk.

New Year’s Eve 1984 I will never forget. I was 15. As the ball dropped, I leaned over to hug a friend and she met me instead with an overwhelming kiss.

As we fumbled upon the bed, I remember debating my next “move” as if it were a chess game. With the “Top Gun” slogan ringing in my head, I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my “mark.” Read the rest of this entry »

Congressman Chris Smith: Gay marriage and adoption is settled law

Josh Welle is lying about Chris Smith–again

The Washington Blade, a website that claims to be America’s LGBT News Source, this morning posted a video, which they claimed was exclusive, which purports to represent Congressman Chris Smith telling students at Colts Neck High School that he thinks children would be better off in orphanages than they would be if adopted by a same-sex couple.

The Blade’s video is not exclusive nor does it represent what Congressman Smith said to the Colts Neck students that morning.

MMM attended the student assembly in Colts Neck on the morning of May 29 and recorded Smith’s 53 minute appearance.  The entire unedited recording, with only Smith’s photo added, is here:  Read the rest of this entry »

Hanlon makes it easier to opt-out of automatic Vote-By-Mail

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon today posted a form on her website for voters to use if they want to opt-out of the automatic Vote-By-Mail law recently signed by Governor Phil Murphy.

The new law requires that any voter who voted by mail in 2016, the last presidential election, automatically be sent Vote-By-Mail ballots in all future elections unless they opt-out in writing.

Voters who do not opt-out in writing will not be able cast their vote in a voting machine.  They will be able to cast a provisional ballot if they show up at the polling location to vote and find that their name is not in the book.

The form, which we are posting below, should be printed out, signed and mailed or emailed by September 14…this Friday.

County Clerk Reminds Voters about the New Vote by Mail Law which will affect the November General Election

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is reminding voters that a new law signed by Governor Phil Murphy in August dramatically changed the Vote by Mail rules in New Jersey. These changes are effective immediately and will impact the November General Election.

The new law mandates that all voters who voted by mail in the 2016 General Election be sent a Mail-In Ballot for the 2018 General Election, even if they did not request one. If these voters do not want to receive a 2018 General Election Mail-In Ballot, they must notify the County Clerk in writing to opt out.

“All of these 2016 Mail-In Ballot voters have been sent a letter from the County Clerk’s Office advising of this change, so it is important that voters be on the lookout for this letter,” said Clerk Hanlon.
