Sen. Cory Booker is “inconsistently” anti-Semitic… but enough to worry us.

New Jersey’s junior United States Senator is breaking the rules of the Senate for the purposes of partisan politics.  Releasing confidential documents in the manner of a Chelsea Manning – except that he knows that he won’t be prosecuted for it because he is a powerful politician.  Which kinda makes him a pussy.

No amount of media ass-licking is going to change that.  No, Senator Booker is no “Spartacus” like in the movies or on cable TV.  That Spartacus was a slave, not a Roman Senator.  That said, he might be trying to fashion his own “Spartacus” movement.  Who and what was the Spartacus movement?

Officially called the Spartacus League, it was founded during the First World War by a group of Marxist revolutionaries.  They dropped the charade in 1919 and formally changed their name to the Communist Party of Germany.  Through violent street demonstrations (note the blood in the illustration above) they helped to bring down the Social Democrats and Centrists of the Weimar Republic and pave the way for the National Socialists of you know who…

Which brings us to one of the great inconsistencies of Senator Cory Booker.  That being, when he is in front of a Jewish audience, he couldn’t be more sympathetic and, in appearance, pro-Israel… but with anyone else, a different mask appears and you get antics like this…

Calling for the end to the border wall and other fortifications that protect Israel against terrorists is like calling for a second Holocaust.  It is not enough that Cory Booker’s international allies have driven Jews out of every country they control, now he wants to tear down Israel’s protective barrier and allow them to march in to commence a pogrom of terror, torture, rape, and murder.

And to make matters worse, thanks to the Philadelphia Inquirer, now we know that Booker's fellow Democrat - Bob Menendez - is allowing his campaign to be run by a lobbyist for the foreign government of Qatar, one of the worse anti-Jewish culprits in the world and a government criticized by the United Nations and Amnesty International for its relaxed attitude towards modern slavery - human trafficking and the exploitation of children. 

So why are Democrat congressional candidates Mikie Sherrill, Tom Malinowski, and Andy Kim silent on this?  Is their silence an indication that they fear offending leftwing anti-Semites like Linda Sarsour of the Women's March?  All three have posted positively about Sarsour, who has embraced the radicalism of Islamic extremists like Louis Farrakhan and Siraj Wahaj.  Sherrill, Malinowski, and Kim were silent too last year, when Linda Sarsour called  for "Jihad" against the elected government of the United States of America. 

Mikie Sherrill is running for Congress in District 11 (against Republican Jay Webber). 

Tom Malinowski is running in District 7 (against Republican Leonard Lance). 

Andy Kim is running in District 3 (against Republican Tom MacArthur).

We need to pay as much attention to what Sherrill, Malinowski, and Kim refuse to talk about as we do to what they talk about. 

As for Senator Booker.  The best way to understand him is to remember Jack Nicholson’s answer to this question…

JCPD cops Bado, Manuel claim Edgar Martinez has ‘anti-white’ racial bias in lawsuit

Jersey City police officers John Bado and George Manuel have filed a lawsuit claiming then-Capt. Edgar Martinez, the city’s North District commander from December 2012 until August 2018, had an “anti-white” racial bias which negatively impacted their careers.

Though Edgar Martinez is now a provisional deputy chief, his record as captain and commander of the Jersey City Police Department’s (JCPD) North District is being challenged in Superior Court.

JCPD officers John Bado and George Manuel have filed a thirteen-count lawsuit in the Superior Court of New Jersey against the City of Jersey City, JCPD, and Martinez, claiming they were the victims of discrimination – on the basis of their race and age – while working in the city’s North District.

Martinez, who is Hispanic, and was the city’s North District commander from December 2012 until August 2018 (including all times relevant to the lawsuit), allegedly abused his position within the JCPD to “harass and discriminate against senior, white officers including Bado and Manuel.”

Bado and Manuel, employed by the JCPD since 1995 and 2003, respectively, say they were subjected to “disparate treatment” and a “hostile work environment” – which included the “undermining of their authority and responsibility as senior officers; denial of overtime opportunities; punitive transfers and scheduling; the refusal to investigate their complaints; intense and unwarranted surveillance; and various other petty acts of harassment.”

Specifically, Bado alleges Martinez refused to approve him for Method of Instruction (MOI) training – denying him the opportunity to become certified as a self-defense and firearms instructor. The complaint states “less qualified Hispanic officers were approved” by Martinez for MOI training, and that Bado was once “selected to be made a Field Training Officer (FTO) by then Captain Phil Zacche.”

Zacche, the ex-JCPD chief convicted by federal authorities of off-duty corruption, is white and served as North District commander prior to Martinez. He’s described as “retired” in the lawsuit.

All that said, allegations surrounding a parking ticket issued by Bado is the most revealing claim made in the lawsuit pertaining to racial tensions.

The drama starts with Bado writing a summons after he observed a vehicle improperly parked on the sidewalk. Then, according to the lawsuit, fellow JCPD officer Chris Matias, who is Hispanic, approached Bado and “advised that the ticketed vehicle belonged to his friend.”

Matias supposedly “demanded that Bado void the ticket and then threatened to physically harm Bado,” per the complaint. Bado states that he “refused to void the ticket which was properly issued,” and that Martinez “was made aware of the incident,” but, “in an act of retaliation,” decided to transfer Bado to another district.

Furthermore, Martinez allegedly “started rumors and made disparaging comments about Bado and Manuel which caused other officers to shun them and/or not want to work with them,” according to the complaint. Additionally, the plaintiffs claim “Martinez’s overt discrimination and harassment had and continues to have a tremendous negative impact” on them.

Of note, despite not being able to pass the civil service exam, Martinez has been given the title of provisional deputy chief – along with 16 other JCPD captains that were eligible to take the test. As he awaits another test in December, Martinez is serving as chief of patrol in his current rank.

Additionally, Martinez is rumored to be a front-runner for chief of police once current JCPD Chief Michael Kelly becomes eligible for a bigger pension and retires.

Bado and Manuel’s lawsuit is the second complaint reported on by Real Jersey City related to the JCPD’s North District, the first being ex-JCPD officer Lou Ramos. In his lawsuit, Ramos claims that instead of stopping harassment he faced at work, Martinez told him that he “needed to have thick skin.”

The City of Jersey City spokesperson was not reached for comment on this story. Public Safety Director James Shea has previously stated the Fulop Administration never comments on litigation.

Bado and Manuel are represented by attorney Craig A. Borgen of the law firm Miller & Borgen.

BLM’s Kaepernick joins Nike to sell a company built on modern slavery

Colin Kaepernick – the man who made “taking a knee at football games” fashionable and who became an icon for the Black Lives Matter movement – has agreed to shill for human trafficker Nike sportswear.  How is this for a mixed message? 

For at least twenty years, Nike has been criticized for its labor practices – including the offshoring of jobs to sub-contractors who use child labor and who practice human trafficking or modern day slavery to help Nike turn a very handsome profit.

Yes, Nike has been caught…

Kaepernick will be the face of Nike’s “Just Do It” 30th anniversary ad campaign.  The initial image is a close up of Kaepernick’s face with the caption: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”  Yeah, believe in something… slavery.

According to Wikipedia and numerous sources, “Nike has been criticized for contracting with factories (known as Nike sweatshops) in countries such as China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Mexico… The company has been subject to much critical coverage of the often poor working conditions and exploitation of cheap overseas labor employed in the free trade zones where their goods are typically manufactured.”

“Nike has faced criticism for the use of child labor in Cambodia and Pakistan… Nike continues to contract their production to companies that operate in areas where inadequate regulation and monitoring make it hard to ensure that child labor is not being used.  A BBC documentary uncovered occurrences of child labor and poor working conditions in a Cambodian factory used by Nike.  The documentary focused on six girls, who all worked seven days a week, often 16 hours a day.”

“As of July 2011, Nike stated that two-thirds of its factories producing Converse products still do not meet the company's standards for worker treatment. A July 2011 Associated Press article stated that employees at the company's plants in Indonesia reported constant abuse from supervisors.”

Sources for this criticism include Naomi Klein's book No Logo and Michael Moore documentaries… including the clips from the one below…

This brings us to Tom Malinowski, a candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th District.  Tom used to be one of the good guys… or maybe it was just a stepping stone, a career move?  Back in 2007, when Tom was a lobbyist for a human rights organization, he chastised the Bush administration for its “double-standard” on issues like Human Trafficking – putting foreign policy before principle and allowing regimes viewed as “allies” to get away with murder.

Fast forward to 2015, with Tom Malinowski now a member of the Obama administration and the top State Department appointee concerned with human rights.  The Obama administration decides to put business interests before principle and in an effort to broaden the markets included in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, reclassifies Malaysia’s human trafficking problem.  The downgrade of the human trafficking crisis in that country comes just as hundreds of bodies of trafficking victims are discovered, buried in the forest.

160 members of Congress – a bi-partisan outpouring – condemn the Obama administration and its State Department for ignoring the plight of victims of modern day slavery.  Here are some headlines…

State Department Watered Down Human Trafficking Report

Senators: State Department ‘Heartless,’ Lacks ‘Integrity’ After Politicized Human Trafficking Report

Lawmakers threaten to subpoena all information about inflated grades for countries that have failed to crack down on forced labor, prostitution

Earlier in May, 139 graves in camps for human trafficking victims were found near Malaysia’s northern border with Thailand.

160 Members of Congress Call on State Department to Not Upgrade Malaysia Ranking in 2015 Trafficking in Persons Report

These headlines are from May 2015.  In June 2015, Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Tom Malinowski testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and claims that it is all about the trade and passing the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  Malinowski argues:

“I am convinced that, on balance, TPP will greatly aid the effort to advance human rights in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Apparently the double-standards that he decried in 2007, under the Bush administration, were okay in 2015, under the Obama administration.  See how the cookie crumbles?

In July 2015, Ranking Democrat Congressman Lloyd Doggett sent a letter to the State Department chastising Tom Malinowski and others responsible for the Obama administration’s policies.  Congressman Doggett wrote:

“Once again trade is being prioritized over trafficking enforcement.  Bending the standards to reward a country that accepts trade in women, children and forced laborers is wrong.  Malaysia adopting some new provision that will not be consistently enforced is no substitute for effective prosecution… It is easier to lower the standard than to insist that Malaysia protect trafficking victims… this (is) another indication that the Trans-Pacific Partnership is not being used to bring about meaningful change on critical issues.”

We couldn’t agree more.

Did someone dump in Alan Steinberg’s brain and neglect to flush it?

Over the past year or so, we have been watching Alan Steinberg’s irretrievable slide into the dark waters of a wannabe fellow-traveler.   With today’s column – the one attacking Republican Bob Hugin and praising the Democrats’ nomination of a 1960’s era socialist as that party’s face in Florida – Steinberg has finally hit crush depth.

We are genuinely concerned for Alan, a one-time devotee of Her Bluebloodedness Christie Todd Whitman, and recall how slavishly Steinberg attempted to defend her disastrous policies – fiscally ruinous – for which every taxpayer in New Jersey continues to suffer.  In recognition of such devotion, the Whitmanites kept Steinberg in patronage heaven.

But with the advent of Donald Trump, something went terribly wrong with Alan.  He’s in touch with too much of the old crowd, most of whom switched party in the Year of Our Lord 2008, when Heaven sent down the anointed one to dwell amongst and lead us.  We hate to remind Alan that when the folks who voted for He Who Must Be Obeyed got through all the smoke and bullshit only to realize that they were still living in their mother’s basement, without a job (but in plenty of debt) – these same folks voted for a newer, coarser savior… The Donald. 

The Bluebloods, who Steinberg seems so intent on virtue-signaling to, never got over their rejection by the vast working and middle classes who make up most of America’s voters.  They are not concerned by people like Andrew Gillum, who they long ago sponsored, co-opted, and turned into salon pets.  Corporate America has been pouring money into the Left for generations, with the understanding that when the Left does get power, it leaves them alone and is focused instead on the average American taxpayer.

That’s the great culpability of the 1960’s era New Left – bourgeois academics who found that it was easier to take the rich man’s money and make war on the working class… to compound a philosophy of “identity” that would split the mighty working class into white and black, male and female, gay and straight, urban and rural… to allow it to endlessly battle itself.  And in the time since, economic inequality has grown to the point where, if you believe the Washington Post, the richest 1 percent own more wealth than at any time in the last 50 years.  If you believe the New York Times, the richest one percent hold more wealth than the bottom 90 percent combined.  That’s what the New Left’s identity bullshit and the fracturing of the working class has got us… vast economic inequality.

As for the race between Republican Bob Hugin and the incumbent Democrat, Senator Bob Menendez, is Steinberg serious?

Yes, we do remember that Menendez was once the pet of Governor Tom Kean and that a great many of the most vulgarly rich, formerly Republican, Bluebloods still carry a torch for “that nice young man” from Hudson County.  The trouble is, that “nice young man” grew up to be a corpulent bowl of putrid corruption – and he’s not from Hudson County anymore, he’s from Washington, DC. 

Hey, maybe it’s not all his fault, that place will do it to you, but after the shit he’s pulled, he owns it.  You can’t help your rich buddy import women into the United States and still expect to be called a civilized human being.  It’s a crime against nature.  And that’s before we examine the policies pursued by Bob Menendez… like wanting to waste money on a border wall with Canada (yep, like in South Park) or never meeting a war that he didn’t want to send some blue-collar kids to fight.  Hey, did this guy ever serve himself?  Does that make him a chicken hawk?

So piss on Alan Steinberg’s prognosticating… it’s all just aid and comfort for a very bad guy who has a lot of old-fashioned, formerly Republican, majorly blueblood friends.  And Alan, get hold of yourself, you don’t need those bluebloods’ approval to feel relevant.  Screw them.  Resist.
