Booker está ayudando a destruir educación pública para los niños de familias humildes y correr a estas mismas familias de sus hogares en ciudades urbanas. Él y sus amigos quieren apoderarse de la tierra que ocupen para proyectos de desenvolvimiento comercial.
Plainfield Council candidate
New Jersey Voters are going to have a busy summer and fall with two upcoming elections taking place on Wednesday, October 16 to elect Senator Frank Lautenberg’s replacement … and the general election happening less than three weeks later on Tuesday, November 5. This year, every single state level politician in New Jersey is up for re-election: assemblypeople, state senators and the governor.
Trenton Times Reporter George Amick gives us the list of election related dates we’re going to need to “keep track of”:
The buzz is just starting to build about Cory Booker’s sellout of the people of Newark he is pledged to serve in favor of the big money financiers he’s so in love with. They want to run the voters who elected Cory out of Newark and destroy Newark public education for children so departing residents will have nothing to come back to. We’re talking financiers like Mitt Romney, whom Cory lavishly praised on public television during the last presidential election. sneich reacts with comments and a hard-hitting question on the Daily Kos:
On May 4, Cory Booker gave a rousing, anti-public schools, anti-union speech at an “Education Reform” in Jersey City, sponsored by ALEC and the Koch Brothers …
And now, Booker has come to the defense of Mitt Romney and specifically, Romney’s time at Bain Capital, strongly defending what he did at the job-destroying company. It’s truly vile. But it reveals something about Cory Booker. As Josh Marshall from TPM points out regarding Booker’s pro-Romney, pro-Bain comments, “This was not a mistake. This was not a gaffe. This was not something that Cory Booker got backed into by David Gregory on ‘Meet The Press’. Throughout his career, Booker has relied heavily on the financial sector and Wall Street in particular.” http://video.msnbc.msn.com/now-with-alex-wagner/47506073/#47512241
Will we sit back and allow Cory Booker to get his career back on track, worm his way into higher offices, and then “pay back” his billionaire backers with policies that concentrate even MORE wealth into his hands? Or will we know see who Booker is and make sure he NEVER gets elected to anything again?
If you wish your senator to vote against telecom immunity make a call and send an email today to your senator.
BERKELEY, CA-Last week, on June 20, the House of Representatives approved a compromise bill to amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA). The bill sets new electronic surveillance rules that effectively shield telecommunications companies from lawsuits resulting from the government’s warrantless eavesdropping on phone calls and viewing of emails of private citizens in the U.S. Approximately 40 lawsuits have been filed with potential damages totaling in the billions of dollars.
On March 14 of this year the House passed an amendment that rejected retroactive immunity for phone carriers who helped the National Security Agency carry out the illegal wiretapping program without proper warrants. Ninety-four House Democrats voted in favor of this measure–rejecting immunity–on March 14, then ‘changed’ to vote in favor of the June 20 House bill–approving immunity . . .
House Dems who changed their vote to support FISA bill, giving immunity to telcos, received, on average, $8,359 in PAC contributions from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.
