Former Admitted Groper Cory Booker Says, ‘It Would Be Irresponsible Not To’ Consider 2020 Presidential Run

By K. Walker - September 20, 2018

Maybe Cory ‘Spartacus’ Booker forgot that he has a potentially disqualifying incident of groping a woman against her will.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) along with his colleague, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) were using the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings as a platform to increase their profile as they both mull over a potential 2020 Presidential run.

After much denial that that was the reason for his recent antics, Sen. Booker has confirmed that he is indeed planning on seeking the nomination from the Democratic Party to run for President in 2020.

Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey seemed to confirm suspicions of a 2020 presidential run Wednesday, telling New York Magazine it would be “irresponsible not to” at least consider challenging President Trump.

“Of course the presidency will be something I consider. It would be irresponsible not to,” Booker said.

While Sen. Harris had resorted to half-truths, misdirection, and blatant lies during the hearing, Sen. Booker had instead knowinglynot violated Senate rules, appealed to emotion, and committed grandstanding that is usually reserved for the off-off-Broadway productions of Shakespeare ‘reimagined’ in the 21st century.

Booker started his grandstanding during the opening remarks, where he constantly interrupted Chair Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) in his ‘Look at me! Look at me! Look at me!‘ attempt.

And who can forget his ‘I am Spartacus‘ moment where he reveals that not only does he not understand the reference, but that the moment was actually all about him?

In short, Booker has single-handedly made the Supreme Court Confirmation Hearing of Brett Kavanaugh a complete circus.

But hold on to your hats, there’s more.

He’s now saying that it the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court should be delayed until a ‘full investigation’ is complete.

So, six background checks aren’t enough for Sen. Spartacus?

Apparently not.

“At a bare minimum, this week’s scheduled committee vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court must be postponed until this matter is fully and thoroughly investigated,” said Booker, D-N.J.

Of course, he’s only doing this because he stands by the alleged victim, right?

Well, it appears Sen. Spartacus got a little handsy when he was a teen.

In an article that Booker wrote in 1992 when he was attending Stanford University, he recounts an incident when he was a teenager and groped a girl against her will.

In a piece titled, (I kid you not,) ‘So Much For Stealing Second‘ Booker writes about his awkward experience of grabbing a friend’s breast and having his hand pushed away.

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.”

Our groping ended soon and while no “relationship” ensued, a friendship did. You see, the next week in school she told me that she was drunk that night and didn’t really know what she was doing.

The article goes on to say how much Booker changed from the horndog 15-year old that viewed sex as a game and a collection of conquests. He discusses his early college years where he spoke about how alcohol facilitated those sorts of relationships.

Ever since puberty, I remember receiving messages that sex was a game, a competition. Sexual relations were best achieved through luck, guile, strategy or coercion. Another friend in high school counseled me on the importance of drinking: “With liquor you’ll get to bed quicker,” she said. Thinking about her statement back then, I realized its veracity.

Coming to college, I was immersed in the same sort of attitudes.

“What do you think happened? She invited me back to her room at 3 a.m.”

“I’ve got to find a way to snatch that snatch.”

“The best thing for that girl would be to be tied down and screwed.”

Out of context these statements seem shocking, but in context they were barely noticed.

He then explains how his views radically changed after he became a peer counselor and saw how that attitude could lead to rape. The world has changed a lot in a few years, so remember that these were the days before the realization that drunk girls can’t give consent.

After two years at Stanford, I snapped from one extreme to the other. Once, during my sophomore year, in response to a slew of my verbiage, a friend of mine chidingly called me a man-hater.

In retrospect, my soliloquy titled “The Oppressive Nature Of Male Dominated Society And Its Violent Manifestations: Rape, Anorexia, Battered Wives” may have been a surreptitious attempt to convince her that I was a sensitive man, but more likely I was trying to convince myself that my attitudes had changed.

My polar leap had little to do with residential education. It had to do with a deluge of reality. You see, I had begun listening to the raw truth from men and women discussing rape about two years ago as a peer counselor. The conversations were personal accounts, not rhetoric; they were real life, not dorm programing. It was a wake-up call — I will never be the same.

Source: The Stanford Daily Signal, February 19, 1992.

That’s great that Sen. Booker snapped out of that cheap sex attitude. It’s demeaning to everyone involved.

He also recognizes that he didn’t stay as that sex-crazed teen, and matured.

Indeed, it’s a great thing that teenagers can make really bad decisions and then suddenly grow up into mature adults.

This could be why he was a co-sponsor of the REDEEM Act in 2014 which aims to lower recidivism rates and reform the criminal justice system. The REDEEM Act would automatically seal, (and in certain cases, expunge,) juvenile records, significantly restrict the confinement of juveniles, and incentivize states to raise the age of adult criminal responsibility to 18, among other things. The bill was introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), and has support from Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD).

The section of Sen. Spartacus’s own website on the REDEEM Act says the following:

Studies of youth brain development have found that the decision-making functions of the brain do not fully develop until much later than was previously believed to be the case. Despite this, some states still try 17-, and even 16,-year-olds as adults by default. The REDEEM Act incentivizes states to establish 18 years old as a floor for original jurisdiction by adult criminal courts by allowing preference to be given to Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant applications that originate from states that have enacted similar or stronger provisions.

(Emphasis Added)

So, Sen. Booker should be a little more sympathetic to Judge Kavanaugh with these fairly flimsy claims, don’t you think?

But no.

Instead, his office is calling this attention to Sen. Booker’s admitted groping when he was a teen a ‘right-wing attack’.

This disingenuous right-wing attack, which has circulated online and in partisan outlets for the past five years, rings hollow to anyone who reads the entirety of Senator Booker’s Stanford Daily column,” a spokesperson for the senator said in a statement to Fox News.

“The column is in fact a direct criticism of a culture that encourages young men to take advantage of women — written at a time when so candidly discussing these issues was rare — and speaks to the impact Senator Booker’s experience working to help rape and sexual assault survivors as a college peer counselor had on him.

No, Spartacus, that’s not it at all.

I actually applaud the conclusions that you came to.

But you’re not acknowledging that the allegations against Kavanaugh are sketchy and can’t be proven or disproven.

Should the unwanted grope of a drunk girl when you were 15 mean that you shouldn’t be a Senator or be able to run for President? Especially since you had a ‘come to Jesus moment’ after facing the reality of sexual assault as a peer counselor?

My values say, ‘Hell no!’ But your actions say that it should cost you nothing but the unprovable allegation against Brett Kavanaugh should cost him everything. And you say that despite his squeaky clean record, and the alleged ‘witnesses’ that deny the party even took place.

Surprise! I can disagree with you and not be a hater at the same time.

It’s called being consistent.

It doesn't matter,and wouldn't matter if it had been caught on videotape. He can and will play the "sorta black card",and it will be the people who called him on it that will be condemned as "racists".

Plus,that boy is dumb enough to be a Kennedy,Gore,or Biden,so he is clearly qualified. There is nothing the voting Dim public loves more than having a President that's even dumber than them.

Same thing with the Kamala creature. She may even be dumber than Booker,AND she can play the black AND the vagina card.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

Why Corey's not only not all there, but he's not all negro either.His whitey blood is far left however and more than compensates for the negro daddy.

What a great candidate for president. Perhaps the idiot Biden will run again as vice president. What a balanced ticket: two stupid leftist clowns. One feels up women while the other is a pedophile.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

And the End Result should be the same. Sooner rather than later.

Booker is a Terrorist. As are ALL Democrats. AND 90% of Media and Academia.
