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.

Originally published in The Stanford Daily Signal, February 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 »Posted: September 18th, 2018 | Author: admin | Filed under: Cory Booker, New Jersey, News, U.S. Supreme Court | Tags: brent kavanagh, christine blasey ford, Cory Booker, SCOTUS, U.S. Senate | 9 Comments »
WASHINGTON, DC-New Jersey Senator Cory Booker this week said he had a “Spartacus moment” while falsely claiming to release “confidential” non-confidential papers before the Senate Judiciary Committee during the Supreme Court confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“Spartacus” today has become a rallying cry for blue Dems across the country as Booker ceremoniously kicked off his unofficial Presidential campaign for 2020.
According to the story of Spartacus, he was the leader of a slave uprising against the Roman Empire.admin | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Bob Menendez, Cory Booker, New Jersey | Tags: Bob Mendendez, Cory Booker, New Jersey | 2 Comments »
Kudos to Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop for voluntarily complying with federal Judge Naomi Buchwald’s ruling that public officials are violating the 1st Amendment Rights of their constituents when they block political critics from their social media accounts.
I’ve officially unblocked anyone that was ever blocked from seeing my social media accounts – Anti-semites, racists, trolls, fake accounts, former family members, ppl that hate Jersey City – all are welcome now. I may not like u personally but the law is the law. @realDonaldTrump

Senator Cory Booker is slated to travel to Montana next month (h/t The Auditor) to raise money for local Democrats.
Booker is considered a frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, despite his denials of interest in the office. We can expect him to make quite of few trips to Iowa and New Hampshire over the next couple years. But Montana? Montana’s 3 electoral votes have gone to the Republican candidate in each presidential election since 1952 when General Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated Illinois Governor Adlai Stevenson, except 1964 and 1992. President Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Montana by over 20%.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Cartoons, Cory Booker, New Jersey | Tags: 2020 Presidential Politics, Climate Change, Cory Booker, dinosaurs, Global Warming, Montana, Senator Cory Booker | 1 Comment »
Belmar residents protesting the corrupt practices of Mayor “Lawless Matt” Doherty’s administration of local government were out in force last evening to greet Senator Cory Booker and other Democrats from throughout New Jersey who descended upon the Dirty Doherty home to raise funds for Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Vin Gopal’s quest to turn Monmouth County into Esssex, Hudson and Union counties.
Gopal greeted Booker with a warm embrace when the former Newark Mayor exited the black SUV that drove through the picket line to enter the Doherty estate.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Cory Booker, Mike Doherty, Monmouth County News, Vin Gopal | Tags: Cory Booker, Lawless Matt Doherty, Monmouth County News, Vin Gopal | 9 Comments »
CLEVELAND — Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Friday night chose Tim Kaine as her running mate, bypassing U.S. Sens.

Congressman Frank Pallone is holding up the passage of a legislation that would update the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) by objecting to language inserted in the Senate version of the bill by Senator Cory Booker that would restrict the use of animals in testing the health risks of chemicals, according to a report today on Politico.
Pallone’s resistance to the language surprised many on the Hill because he has traditionally been a reliable supporter of animal safety legislation. 39 House Democrats wrote to Pallone on Friday asking him to accept the Senate version of the animal safety which he is currently holding up in a conference committee. A copy of the letter to Pallone from his colleagues can be downloaded here.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Congress, Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News | Tags: animal safety, Bonnie Lautenberg, Congress, Cory Booker, Frank Lautenberg, Frank Pallone, House of Representatives, Humane Society, Humane Society of the United States, Monmouth County News, Toxic Substances Control Act, TSCA, Wayne Pacelle | Comments Off on Report: Pallone is holding up animal safety measure over grudge with Booker
