Are Republicans Turning Their Backs On Trump?

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) recently appeared on MSNBC where he claimed Republicans actually told him in secrecy that they don’t agree with Trump’s portrayal of immigrants.

Partial transcript as follows:

MITCHELL: I wanted to ask you to respond to the president’s rhetoric about immigrants. He, first of all, has been falsely accusing them of being all criminal elements, and emphasizing whatever cherry picking of statistics to say that they are responsible for so much criminal violence, which is not the case statistically. But referring to them as infecting America, what is the impact of that?

BOOKER: So in the federal courthouse I just came out of, I had people pulled me aside and said they were Republicans and said they think what is going on is wrong. That the way the president is portraying this border community is wrong and is insulting. The knowledge from everything that the wall is not necessary, all the way to saying—again, these are Republicans that pulled me aside having this conversation with me—saying this is not who we are, that crime is going down in these communities. And so the divisive rhetoric, the bigoted rhetoric, not to Mexicans or Americans, but to human dignity, is not contributing to this situation, not in any way helping us be a country.

    And we are supposed to believe anything this Democrat hack says?

  • Some Republicans are just that–RINO who wants to hold on to their power and money.. they are the Back stabbers and are part of the democrats who wants to remove Trump because he is exposing all their crimes and corruption… We will still vote for Trump

  • rtryon

    Human dignity for citizens of Central America where we have spent billions of our taxpayers money, that can not achieve our purported intent because of the vastly different society with morals beyond our control, still has to be found at a Wall with legal points of entry- not a point of landing any time, at any location just inside the unguarded border. Such persons are not to be assumed to be anything but people out of place. Go back and apply for asylum at the gates not by illegal crossing where drug runners manage to get past too.

    B/S Booker…..wouldn’t you just love it if it were so…something else to blame our President for and hold against him
    TRAITOR to the Americans who elected and now put up with your crap.

    Sen. Booker is out of touch with reality. Most people in the United States are fed up with the illegals voting, getting our social security money without paying in, getting welfare, and generally being here since they sneaked across our borders to the land of milk and honey. We the people demand that they be sent back and kept back. Mexico or their country of origin should pay the bill and then keep them there. If not then more drastic measures should be taken. Members of Congress who favor these illegals are after one thing – their illegal vote. In the case of illegals voting that state that allows it should be forfeit of all votes for that election. Sorry liberals but you criminal acts are no longer acceptable to us nor are the votes of people who don’t even take the time to become citizens. Being issued a driver’s license does not make one a citizen. Our forefathers took classes and passed a test to become citizens and did it gladly. No one gave them a damn thing, and they helped build this into the greatest country in the world. You miserable liberal poor excuse for humans think you are above the law, need illegal votes to remain in power, and are basically worthless as contributors to the better good fof this country. FACT. We the people want your resignation now and take Waters, Feinstein and Pelosi wih you. People like you are the reason we have lost the old America, you know the one that had no debt, people got along, and apple pie was something special.t

      OUT OF TOUCH IS NOT THE WORD,AND HE IS A BIG TIME RACIEST PUPPET FOR THE DEMOCRATS PARTY

        My opinion exactly.

  • Do not believe a word Booker says he is a serial liar and he wants to be President some day.

    • Charles Lagioia

      NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sen. Booker I have a bridge in Brooklyn I want to sale. You interested?😂

    First of all, it is a VERY leading question where the pundit, I mean “journalist” is in attack mode and already has given the “answer” it wants. Secondly, ANYONE who crosses the border ILLEGALLY HAS committed a criminal offense, so they ARE a “criminal element”. Thirdly, even IF more than Flake & McCain thought that way, they WOULDN’T tell Booker any of it because it would be VERY toxic to them to associate in any way with him, as he is a known, proven liar.

  • Big Ed

    I was just talking with ex-president Obama and he told me Trump was exactly right in his handling of the illegal immigrant issue. He thought it imperative to gather up every illegal in the country and deport the entire lot of them. By now, you’ve probably figured out that this entire comment is BS and I hope you can see that Booker’s comment is no less BS than mine. The comment made by Booker follows the modus operandi established by the mainstream media as a method of developing “fake news”-aver a “fact”, followed by an attribution to un-named sources. Some Republicans told Booker-see how it works.

    This explains a lot about today’s Democratic Party.
    In an article published in late June, anti-communist analyst Trevor Loudon, author of the book The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the US Congress, shined the spotlight on the multiple communists and “radical anti-American socialists” serving on the platform committee. Among the figures cited in the report are a number who have been involved in the “Democratic Socialists of America,” which Loudon described as “a communist group based on the theories of Italian Communist party theoretician Antonio Gramsci — an advocate of revolution through infiltration.” Other platform members were from what he referred to as “more traditionally communist groups.”

    “Most of these individuals could not pass an FBI background security check to sell you stamps at the Post Office,” Loudon argued in his June 26 article. “They would not be allowed to clean the toilets on any military base in this country. Yet they are drafting policies that will shape the lives of more than 300 million Americans. It is time for loyal Democrats to realize that their party is no longer the party of Harry Truman, or JFK. It has been hijacked at the highest levels by enemies of the U.S. Constitution and American freedom.”

    And indeed, there can be little doubt that some of the extremists identified by Loudon are hostile to the U.S. Constitution and the liberties of the American people. In fact, they say so themselves throughout the Democrat Party platform they drafted — a document that includes brazen attacks even on constitutionally protected liberties such as free speech, and of course flagrantly denies even the right to life by promoting taxpayer-funded killing of unborn children across America and worldwide. The fact that the extremists were appointed with the support or at least tacit approval of leading Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and DNC boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz, also speaks volumes.

    Several of the socialists identified by Loudon are affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America, the nation’s largest and most prominent socialist organization. Aside from promoting dangerous tyranny and constitutional subversion in the United States, the DSA is also an affiliate of the totalitarian global alliance of communists and socialists known as the Socialist International. The SI, of course, is a world socialist government-promoting outfit that includes numerous murderous political parties from around the globe. So extreme is the global outfit that its 24th Congress in 2012 was hosted by a Marxist political party whose president was at the time busy advocating genocide of minorities on national television.

    Another dangerous outfit well-represented on the Democrat Party’s platform committee is the Communist Party USA, once a tentacle of the mass-murdering Soviet regime in the United States. However, the presence of CPUSA friends and activists on the Democrat Party’s key committee guiding the party’s positions is hardly a surprise. Last year, the CPUSA’s boss, John Bachtell, even boasted openly that his Marxist-Leninist organization “utilizes” the increasingly radical Democratic Party to advance its totalitarian objectives in the United States. “At this stage we are about building the broad people’s movement led by labor that utilizes the vehicle of the Democratic Party to advance its agenda,” Bachtell wrote to his supporters.

    The first anti-American socialist highlighted by Loudon is Dr. Cornel West, a supporter of socialist Bernie Sanders and a supposed “theologian” who does not even bother to conceal his radical socialist views and extreme agenda. In fact, after decades of membership, West also became Honorary Chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. West also founded the socialist New Party in the 1990s and has produced a great deal of Marxist propaganda, including, among other resources, the book The Ethical Dimensions of Marxist Thought. He has been a pioneer in exploring how race-mongering and fanning race hatred can be exploited by socialists to advance their totalitarian agenda.

    Also cited by Loudon is Representative Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), another Sanders supporter who, among other controversies, has been a supporter of the radical Nation of Islam. Despite his open advocacy for homosexuality, Ellison is the first “Muslim” elected to the U.S. Congress. He is also “a longtime associate of the Minnesota Communist Party,” according to Loudon. “Keith Ellison has held several meetings in the home of recently deceased Minnesota Communist Party leader Erwin Marquit, was elected with the help of teams of communist phone bankers and has contributed an article to the Communist Party USA‘s People’s World website,” Loudon explained. Indeed, the CPUSA’s propaganda mouthpiece even promoted Ellison’s campaign for Congress, calling him a “fresh progressive” and “established progressive leader.”

    Another socialist helping to write the Democrat platform is Obama’s former “climate czar” Carol Browner. Plenty of the “qualifications” on her résumé ought to raise eyebrows for Americans concerned about freedom and sovereignty. Perhaps most alarming, though, is Browner’s leadership seat on the Socialist International’s “Commission for a Sustainable World Society,” which openly sought to impose “global governance” on humanity and “promote socialist ideas and work towards this objective at international level” under the guise of dealing with supposed man-man global warming. Browner also has a long history of working with extremist groups, including an outfit known as “Citizen Action” founded by former Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) radicals.

    Numerous other extremists with troubling track records of totalitarian, anti-constitutional extremism are also listed among the platform committee’s members. Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), for example, is “a former member of the pro-Cuba, Marxist-Leninist Puerto Rican Socialist Party,” Loudon explained, adding that Gutierrez, an open-borders activist, was also involved with a Maoist group and the socialist New Party. Gutierrez is currently in hot water for showering hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds on his wife and daughters.

    Also listed is Paul Booth, a Big Labor organizer for government workers and a DSA leader whose group has helped train “thousands of community organizers in Saul Alinsky tactics.” Alinsky dedicated his book on how to seize power to Lucifer. Representative Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), described by Loudon as “a longtime associate of Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA,” is also on the platform committee. Lee, who has been to Communist Party-ruled Cuba more than 20 times, was also a secret member of the Communist Party breakaway group Committees of Correspondence.

    Of course, none of this is a new phenomenon. In a March 1999 exposé of socialists and communists in Congress by The New American, Robert W. Lee showed how the “House Progressive Caucus,” founded by avowed socialists and communists, was becoming increasingly influential while attempting to conceal its extremism behind lofty rhetoric. Indeed, many of those identified had a long and dangerous history of working with America’s sworn communist enemies to subvert the U.S. Constitution and promote tyranny worldwide. Today, the extremists are more powerful than ever, and, along with their globalist comrades, practically run the Democrat Party.

    Unsurprisingly, the Democrat Party’s draft platform reflects the dangerous extremism of the committee that wrote it. That is bad news for America. Indeed, if it were to be implemented, what remains of the Judeo-Christian foundations of America, the U.S. Constitution, and the liberties it protects would all be obliterated, along with America’s remaining prosperity. Americans who value the U.S. Constitution and the liberties it protects should educate others about the dangerous cast of characters that helped write the Democrat Party’s agenda.

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    The Angel Families would certainly disagree with Booker’s assessment.
    Maybe they should surround the Demonrats and harass them and go to their homes
    and tell them they can have no peace. Hypocrites!!!
    One can only wonder which so-called Rinos he spoke to, if any!!

  • Joecolt
