    Now he’s going to be our next president.

    He's a sell-out

    He's a sell-out

    Senator Cory Booker voted for the Iran Deal under Obama, just like our “delightful” Crown Heights congressional representative, Yvette Clarke. They smile for the camera and shake hands with our local Jewish leaders, but then they go into the Capitol chambers and stab us in the back. Don’t be “impressed” that Cory Booker, or any of these sell-outs, go to the Ohel. Their votes speak louder than anything else. PS: He also did a terrible job as Mayor of Newark: look it up online and you’ll see. And now he thinks he deserves a promotion to do a terrible job… Read more »

    Any Jew who votes for any one of the stooges running on the Democratic Party side is voting for the party of abortions, gay marriage, transgenders, and animosity toward religious people and the state of Israel. Nothing a frum yid should be supporting.

    The Democrats have become dangerous.

    Booker is a clown. No Jew should vote for him even if he visits the Ohel.

    You cant trust him

    You cant trust him

    Foolish are the jewish voters who elected him. He is anti Israel. I remember when one nieve jewish marcher traveled to Israel with the anti Semite Al Sharpton. This clown payed Sharptons trip and guess what. Sharpton went out of his way to meet Arafat. When will jewish voters wake up. You tmust vote Republican down the line. We have enough Orthodox Jews in ny state to make a change. Don’t complain about crime or yeshivas not getting vouchers because they refuse the liberal anti Torah agendas. Vote.

    Booker is a fraud

    Booker has sold out. Whatever his connections to Jews and Chabad was, it’s past history. He has become a politician in the worst sense of the word. Don’t let him fool you.

    Paradoxical

    The rebbe is going to give a brocha to a man who certainly supports late-term abortion and all the other narishkeit that the Left supports?

    He is trying to kasher himself so he can fool religious Jews that he is a friend. With friends like him who needs enemies. So he can quote biblical verses but so can Minister Farrakhan and the other minister Al Sharpthon. Jew haters are Jew haters.

    He’s another false politician

    Booker is pro-BDS yet has the chutzpah to go to the Ohel? Unbelievable.

    No public CH endorsement!

    No public CH endorsement!

    Any Jew that supports him or even takes him seriously is off his rocker. This CH community better not endorse him. He’s a horrible human being, fake as can be, and evil to boot. The community leaders have no right to recommend a vote for this corrupt man. Dems do not represent Jewish values.

    The Rebbe will surely give him a brocho to lose.

    Would not let people comment here that since he might be President of the USA negative comments at this point would not be viewed well by the candidate.

    sad state of the comments board here. the man respects and appreciates the Rebbe enough to make a special personal visit, and you MOCK him. Does everyone who goes to the Ohel share your same exact vision of everything. Big deal, you disagree on a few points with the man, does not take away from the special relationship he has with Chabad and the jewish people

    NO Democrat in the White House!
    Guest
    NO Democrat in the White House!

    So he went to the Ohel.
    What was the ANSWER???

    DEMOCRATS JUST PASSED LAWS ALLOWING BABIES ALREADY BORN TO BE KILLED. Not because they are sick or non viable. But because Mama doesn’t want the child to live. Sounds like China during their only one baby era.

    Mental patients roaming our streets and attacking Jews, also released from asylums, by the Democrats.

    Enough with liberal Democrats who dispise the 7 Noahide laws!

    We need during Republicans, not the Dems who smile at photo shoots whenever a Jew is attacked

    Why is COL reporting on him and giving him attention? He is a disgusting anti-Israel racist that is trying to whitewash his past deeds so he can get the Jewish vote. Why is COL giving him attention and promoting him?

    DISGUSTING OF COLLIVE

    Cory supports BDS. BDS = Anti Israel = Antisemitism.
    COL stop whitewashing him. You keep calling yourselves the community new service, which would imply that you owe it to the community to be truthful and honest in your reporting. Just disgusting.

    Booker has disgraced himself.
    He Is a scheming opportunistic political hack who equated the security walls in Israel with the proposed wall along the Mexican border.He voted for Obamas Iran deal.He cannot be trusted no self respecting Jew should give him any support.

    Typo or Divine Intervention

    “This isn’t the first visit Booker is paying to the Ohel. When he was running for Senate….”

    Was that a typo or a message from a different place in the form of a typo. Was Booker praying, or was he really paying, investing time for some Jewish votes.

    Cory Booker is no friend of religion or the values we hold dear. He is anti-Israel, pro-abortion, peddling identity politics, and trying his best – in his Spartacus costume – to stop our president.

    same question here: what is his public stance on BDS, thats for one. And then, all his previous moves shows that he’s just another common politician. He wants our vote but without caring about true representation.

    just a thought, If Somebody can find some dignity in posting the same thing can be said but in a way that brings dignity to the issues being discussed,

    also of all who posted i doubt you have walked a mile in his shoes

    Don't mix politics in

    It’s becoming an issue that Chabad is perceived as a right-wing organization. Wouldn’t it be incredibly positive if this guy gets the Dem nomination? It would show that were not just a bunch of political hacks but that we actually stand for something that leftists can also appreciate, even if they don’t agree with us even on basic things.

    Did he go visit the Ohel before he voted to give the Iranian Mullahs billions and put the lives of many Jews in danger?

    ohel

    Since no one here is the rebbe at the ohel, no one knows what the rebbe might have provided when this person came to him. Could be a perspective shift. Don’t chassidim believe that a non-jew’s actions are determined by god (and free choice is only to jews)? Whatever the case, he did go, to the rebbe/ohel, and not to you and me, so that’s noteworthy for COL and its readership. As to whether to vote for him as the result, that’s your choice. And as to why COL would allow comments here, at the risk of alienating this potential… Read more »

A VOTE FOR DEMOCRAT IS AGAINST HALACHA AND MAYBE BISMAN HAZEH ONE OF THE GRAVEST SINS A PERSON CAN DO. ITS LIKE VOTING FOR A COMBINATION OF THE 3 AVEROIS YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO DIE FOR.

    He’s not getting elected. He needs jewish money. He is a faker. The democrats support murder of babies, alternative marriage and a shift to atheism and the teaching of evolution. Never will I vote for a Democrat ever. They are our current day hitlers. Yes they want to give Iran the power to murder six million more Jews in nine minutes.

    Jewish blood

    Booker voted to give Iran hundreds of billions of dollars to found their terror against Jews living all over the world and especially in Israel. He voted against the bill to stop giving money to the PA to use as a pension for terrorist families.
    Whomever votes or supports him literally has Jewish blood on their hands! Owe we will never forget Eli Slavic standing up for the Congress women who votes for Iran as well.
    Shame on you !

    Read, watch and learn what the rebbe stood for, see how he gave his all to fight for the protection of the state of Israel and imagine what the rebbe should say to him now would he have the nerve to show his face at dollars.
    Booker votes against everything the rebbe stands for

    What does the Rebbe say?

    From chabad.org – Alan Dershowitz – famous story: Just saying – maybe it is worth being mekarev someone who clearly appreciates us on some level, rather than push away. PS: He was connected to Shmuley Boteach so that is where he gets his hashkofos from About 15 or 20 years ago, I had the chutzpah–in the worst sense of the word—to write an arrogant letter to the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson of righteous memory. I had read in the newspaper that the Lubavitch movement was honoring Jesse Helms, and there was no man in America I despised more… Read more »

    Response to 44

    You can’t compare Jesse helms to Cory Booker
    The reason Dershowitz who is pro alternative marriage and pro abortion hated Jesse helms is because helms was not a liberal . Booker is against our Torah values. You will not influence him as you can’t influence Farrakhan.
