2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J. promised on Saturday to “bring a fight” to the National Rifle Association, as he called for a range of gun control reforms as part of the hometown launch of his national campaign.
On Saturday Cory Booker kicked off a two-week campaign tour in Newark. The message was reminiscent of Michelle Obama’s statement, “When they go low we go high.” Booker said,
“Critics will tell us that a campaign powered by grace and love and a deep faith in each other” cannot prevail. “But I say it’s the only way we win. The president wants a race to the gutter and to fight us in the gutter. To win, we have to fight from higher ground in order to bring this country to higher ground.”
Booker also announced he is bringing a fight the NRA and our 2nd Amendment rights calling for a range of gun control reforms.
“We won’t wait for more thoughts and prayers for communities that have been shattered by gun violence from Pittsburgh to Parkland to Charleston,” he told the crowd in Newark, where he served as mayor for seven years before becoming a senator. “We will pass universal background checks, we will ban assault weapons and close loopholes that allow people who never should have a gun to get one.”
“And folks, we will bring a fight to the NRA like they have never, ever seen before — and we will win,” he said.
The Constitution was created to limit the power of government, not the liberty or freedom of the people! Politicians must always protect our right to defend ourselves and our loved ones! The Second Amendment guarantees that right!
Booker is focusing on Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina. In the 2016 Presidential election, Trump won Iowa and South Carolina while Hillary won Nevada and New Hampshire.

President Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen says he has new information to offer Democrats if authorities reduce or delay his upcoming three-year prison sentence.
Breaking news!! Michael Cohen says he has some new information to offer Democrats if they will reduce or delay his report date for prison.
In a letter to lawmakers Thursday, Cohen’s attorneys say he has discovered substantial files on a hard drive that could help investigations of the president.
The hard drive is said to include over 14 million files, which consist of all emails, voice recordings, images and attachments from Cohen’s computers and phones, his attorneys Lanny Davis, Michael Monico and Carly Chocron wrote.
“To date, Mr. Cohen has located several documents that we believe have significant value to the various congressional oversight and investigation committees,” his attorneys wrote.
According to the article Cohen is going through all his files by himself looking for dirt on Trump so he can hand it over to the Democrats. After the FBI confiscated boxes of evidence for the Mueller investigation and his testimony on Capitol Hill, what more could he have that would be of interest to Democrats?
Cohen’s reputation for honesty has been questionable from the beginning. He has admitted to lying and has broken his Attorney-Client Privilege. He is not the best character witness for Democrats so I highly doubt they will waste any more time on Cohen.
Cohen reports for his three-year prison term on May 6, 2019.
A sizable majority say social media does more to divide the country than unite it, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
According to the latest national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, social media is doing more to divide our country than to bring it together. The poll also shows that people believe the media spreads a lot of fake news.
According to the poll, 57 percent of Americans say they agree with the statement that social media sites like Facebook and Twitter do more to divide the country, while 35 percent think they do more to bring the nation together.
Fifty-five percent believe social media does more to spread lies and falsehoods, versus 31 percent who say it does more to spread news and information.
Sixty-one percent think social media does more to spread unfair attacks and rumors against public figures and corporations, compared with 32 percent who say it does more to hold those public figures and corporations accountable.
And a whopping 82 percent say social media sites do more to waste people’s time, versus 15 percent who say they do more to use Americans’ time well.
It seems that these numbers would discourage people from using social media, but 69% of the people said they go on social media at least once a day. This could be because people use it to stay in contact with friends, family and promote events and their businesses.
But social media does offer things that national media does not provide, and that’s different perspectives.
The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits dropped to a more than 49-year low last week.
This is another great bragging point for the Trump administration. The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits has dropped to a more than 49-year low last week.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped to 202,000 for the week ended March 30, the lowest level since early December 1969, the Labor Department said.
Even though the economy has lost momentum as the stimulus from a $1.5 trillion tax cut package fades, businesses are still short workers.
March’s employment report is scheduled for release on Friday.
According to a Reuters survey of economists, nonfarm payrolls likely increased by 180,000 jobs last month after a meager 20,000 in February, which was seen as pay-back after robust gains in the prior two months.
The unemployment rate is forecast unchanged at 3.8 percent
