Sen. Cory Booker announced Monday that he will end his campaign after failing to qualify for the Democratic debate planned for Tuesday in Iowa. "It was a difficult decision to make, but I got in this race to win, and I've always said I wouldn't continue if there was no longer a path to victory," Booker said in an email to supporters Monday. The New Jersey Democrat's announcement came a day before six presidential candidates will participate in the CNN/Des Moines Register's debate in Des Moines, Iowa. He did not qualify for the event. It also came as the Senate gears up for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.


Look at those racist Democrats. Kicking folks like Kamala (Horizontal) Harris, Juilian (Who'se Buying the Booze) Castro, and now Cory (Spartacus) Booker to the side.

Had this clown not pretended to be straight, hired girlfriend and all, Mayor Buttplug would be out of the picture completely. Huge political miscalculation shows that he and his advisors couldn't run a hot dog stand, let alone a nation.

How can you restore a sense of community and mend the moral fabric of America when you spend most of your time lobbing the race card instead of practicing what you preach. And I'm sure that you continue to throw that race card to place the blame for your failure to be the Democrat candidate to everybody except where it belongs, which is all on yourself.

#2, far left son and family visited over the weekend. He is fully engaged in the 2020 campaign, now supporting Bernie, but that is subject to change. He wants DJT to be defeated. When we discussed Kamala Sutra and Miss Corey, the success of Barack, and the failure of Kamala and Corey, this is how I explained it to him. In the olden days of the Catholic Church, a erson was not to take Holy Communion, unless their sins were confessed and forgiven. When Barack Obola ran for president, many white voters put themselves in a state of race, with any racist slights forgiven, by voting for Barack - twice. Kamala Sutra and Miss Corey each ran for president, believing that the same phenomenon might work for them. But it didn't. Whitey implicitly sad,' Once is enough. My racist slights have been permanently forgiven, with my votes for Barack.' Little Castro and the fake mexican on the skateboard, Beto, might have believed they could dredge up guilty support. That dog didn't hunt, though. That leaves us with two old white guys, duking it out, with Cherokee Lizzie fading rapidly. Peter the Homosexual will do well in Iowa and New Hampshire, but bomb out in South Carolina. And I still believe there will be a deadlocked convention, with the eventual nominee still unseen, waiting in the wings.

The Dems (and the nation) are still recovering from the last black President we’ll ever see. Hateful, openly racist leadership (not skin color) has created millions of Republicans who used to be Democrats. This current crop of nominees will accidentally do their best to assist with BLEXIT. Many would rather vote for Pimp Daddy Donald Trump than QP Joe (who’s looking more like Jeff Dunham’s character “Walter” every day) or Sweet Pete Bootygieg.

This CNN article reads like an obituary. Not a unkind thing to say about the now deceased candidate. Reagan referred to Biden as a "smooth demagogue." I put Booker in the same category, only dumber and always expecting forgiveness because he is liberal and even more so because he is black. He can talk a good talk, though! I must admit that the first time I ever heard him, speaking with and about Rabbi Schmooley Boteach, I was impressed. I need to be more careful sometimes.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Lizzie Fletcher’s first bill — a measure meant to cut away federal red tape and speed up disaster recovery funding — passed the House nearly unanimously, with just seven votes against it and some of the chamber’s most conservative members joining the freshman Democrat in pushing the legislation forward. The next day, Fletcher voted to impeach President Donald Trump — a move Republicans are dead-set on making sure overshadows all else Fletcher has done in her rather effective first year in Congress.

When a big event happens anywhere in the country, sometimes anywhere in the world, a San Antonio connection somehow emerges. Sometimes it’s found deep in the details. Sometimes it has been there all along, hiding in plain sight. All too often, it comes with bad news. So it was with the death this week of Congressman Elijah Cummings, whose storied political career began when he fought to desegregate a Baltimore swimming pool. He was 11. In his last hours, as the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, one of three panels leading impeachment investigations of President Donald Trump, Cummings signed two subpoenas.

The Democrat-led House Intelligence Committee has released the whistleblower complaint that triggered President Trump's impeachment inquiry. The complaint cites “multiple White House officials with direct knowledge of the call" between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and accuses Trump of attempting “to pressure the Ukranian leader to take actions to help the President’s 2020 reelection bid.” It also presents allegations that the White House tried to "restrict access" to records of the call.

"I find it depressing that the most important political office in the world is turning into the face of racism and exclusion," Joe Kaeser said Saturday on Twitter. Kaeser's remarks are the most prominent criticism from the business world in reaction to Trump's rally last week in North Carolina.

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17 after they subpoenaed the special counsel Tuesday, according to the committees' chairmen, Reps. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif. Congressional Democrats have fought to get access to Mueller and his unredacted report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether President Trump obstructed justice. Weeks of negotiations between House Democrats and the Justice Department ultimately ended with the subpoena. Fox News has learned Mueller would appear only under a subpoena, which has been described as a "friendly" subpoena, one that in essence had been planned.

Hollywood celebrity is tough to shuck, at least for Meghan Markle, last seen in a starring role as Duchess of Sussex. Instead of marveling at her fairy tale ending with her marriage to Prince Harry in the U.K., she's made it clear she wants to go back to the Hollywood celebrity circuit, that "b" list group that makes loud leftwing noises to get attention -- and movie roles. Harry can come along for the ride if he wants, but he's probably going to get chewed up and spat out in the long run. She'll dump him when he gets inconvenient.

Prince Harry and Princess Meghan astounded the world — and the Royal family, apparently — when they announced they were giving up on their senior royal duties and decamping to Canada. In fact, Meghan has gone already — appearing to leave Harry to pick up the pieces at home. And it’s a shame, because the UK really did seem ready to embrace its new American princess when the pair tied the knot in a fairytale wedding at Windsor in 2018. Furthermore, the British people really do support the monarchy and do tend to cut them a lot of slack. So what could possibly have gone wrong? –All those flights–
