Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and the president of the pro-Israel lobbying group text each other “like teenagers” and talk about unifying the Senate against boycotting Israel, his leaked speech at an AIPAC meeting reveals.

Audio of the closed-door meeting was obtained and published by the Intercept on Saturday. Booker spoke before the members of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) at the organization’s annual policy conference in Washington on Tuesday.

Third rail no more? MoveOn asks 2020 Dems to boycott AIPAC

Booker was one of the few Democratic presidential hopefuls who appeared before AIPAC. Many skipped the event after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) stirred up the party with criticism of the lobby group’s influence in US politics. 

The candidate thanked AIPAC President Mort Fridman for his “leadership and his friendship,” the audio reveals, and shared with participants details of their cozy relationship. Booker said they try to keep in touch and “text message back and forth like teenagers.”

He also voiced his strong rejection of anti-Semitism, saying it comes in different forms – particularly, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. BDS is a global movement focused on pressuring Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian territories and human rights violations. This pressure is unacceptable, Booker stated.

“Let me be clear. Anti-Semitism is un-American. It is anti-American. It violates, most deeply, our commonly held values, and we must take steps on the global stage against vicious acts that target hatred.”

“That is why I’m a co-sponsor of Senate Bill 720, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, which opposes international efforts to encourage BDS while protecting First Amendment rights,” Booker added.

The controversial bill discourages US companies from joining any organizations involved in boycotting Israel. While it has received sizable support, human rights activists have raised concerns over the legislation, while others criticize it as an attempt by the Dems to win the pro-Israel lobby away from President Donald Trump.

Booker, however, stressed that bipartisan unity is important in supporting Israel. He also seemed to be offended by the remarks of Vice President Mike Pence,

Former Presidential Candidate Gives Exclusive Interview To Geoengineering Watch

Dr. Chuck Baldwin has a very long and impressive resume (also covered in Wikipedia), including being the 2008 presidential candidate for the Constitutional Party. In a world where preconception, ideology and bias increasingly rule the day, Dr. Baldwin has long since been a courageous outspoken voice of reason and fact based conclusions. Dr. Baldwin’s unyielding regard and respect for the unvarnished truth, no matter how much blowback he has had to endure for his outspokenness, is truly inspiring. In this candid and revealing 45 minute interview, conducted by Dane Wigington from GeoengineeringWatch.org, Dr. Baldwin passionately elaborates on his personal journey of investigation and discovery that shattered the foundations of what he and so much of our society had been taught as fact. Our most sincere apologies for technical difficulties that caused some background noise during the interview.

In our increasingly Owellian world, now, more than ever, voices like Chuck Baldwin’s need to be heard. If a larger percentage of society is not able to rise above their programming in order to honestly examine the front-line facts, we will have no chance of altering our current course of near term planetary omnicide. We must all make our voices heard in the critical battle to sound the alarm, the sand in the hourglass is rapidly running out.
