“Cory Booker’s Nine Points of Nonsense: E. Adam Jackson Critiques the Writing of His Copyright Infringer.”
Senator Booker used the tragedy of the Mother Emanuel 9 as a framework in nine paragraphs published at billboard.com See http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/magazine-feature/7647946/president-obama-legacy-amazing-grace-cory-booker . Cory Booker set the stage for his adulate advertisement of the Obama Legacy by emotionally involving his audience in the sadness of the church massacre and then, once he took them there, he eloquently lied to his readers.
In paragraph 2 Cory Booker writes about “crises and challenges” faced by great presidents including Kennedy. Then Cory Booker claims that President “Obama spoke to the soul, courage and love of our nation” and that he “re-moralized our nation” and “fixed our compass to true north.”
The fact is that the health status of African-Americans and our other citizens was a greater crisis than even the horrible tragedy at Mother Emanuel, one that Obama could have truly addressed and not just talked about. It’s a major betrayal that Obama did not advocate single-payer health care for the 9 victims from Mother Emanuel Church or anyone else. But Cory Booker hyped about how Obama sang the classic song of a slave-trader who had a guilt complex.
The in-your-face challenge faced by POTUS 44 was to establish a single-payer healthcare system. At the end of the day, Barack Obama refused to do that compassionate act. He didn’t face the issue, he about-faced the issue because first he was for it and then after taking $20 million from the health care industry he was against it. See https://youtu.be/fpAyan1fXCE and https://youtu.be/KtifLTkrBYs
Obama spoke with soul, wrote Senator Booker. But “The Soul of Black Folk” by W.E.B. Du Bois taught us to understand denial or delay of healthcare would be immoral in the face of immediate need.
Obama spoke with courage, wrote Senator Booker. Well, Kennedy’s book “Profiles in Courage” was given to E. Adam Jackson by his fourth grade teacher. To be in that book, Obama could qualify by giving the people single-payer but he did not. Therefore he would not belong there.
Obama spoke with love? Love? The love of Jesus as taught in the Bible would make free universal health care a no-brainer. Looks like the True North of Cory Booker’s and Barack Obama’s moral compass might be confounded by the strange magnetism of Big Health Care’s big money.

In paragraph 3 Cory Booker says that Obama led so-called “America” “with grace and scandal free dignity.” But Obama’s elegant and smooth denial of healthcare is a scandal waiting to happen, hushed due to major media neglect, public unawareness, and lack of sexual luridness. Amazing Grace indeed.
Amazingly, in paragraph 4 Senator Booker wrote that “Obama has ably led our nation to greater prosperity” when the truth is that President Obama presided over the biggest transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich in history. See http://robertreich.org/post/72265646495 and http://thefreethoughtproject.com/barack-obama-successfully-rich-richer/. In the same paragraph Cory Booker wrote that Obama “has not allowed us to surrender our values of freedom and compassion” while the truth is that President Obama gave himself the power to act as judge, jury, and executioner of US citizens and he used it. See https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/feb/05/obama-kill-list-doj-memo
None of the Obamaccomplishments pointed to by Senator Booker in paragraph 5 outweigh the President’s failure and flip on single-payer health care. Cory Booker points to the First Family as “helping us as a nation to see each other more clearly” when it is actually free eye care that would help US citizens with their sight.
In paragraph 6 Cory Booker wrote that “This black family in the White House expanded the moral imagination of us all and helped a generation of children from all backgrounds to dream bigger and more inclusive dreams for themselves and their country.” And of course that’s all very nice – but President Obama did not give those young people and their beautiful families free, universal health care.
In paragraph 7 it’s remarkable that the schoolchildren told Cory Booker they want to be POTUS, because then those little presidents would have single-payer health care!
Paragraph 8 finds Cory Booker fluffing his readers down to the floor with pluralized platitudes telling us “…we can achieve impossible things.” But single-payer was entirely possible because President Obama had the votes.

The final paragraph of Senator Cory Booker’s essay on Obama is his ninth point of nonsense. The Senator wrote about how President Obama sang “Amazing Grace” and the people sang with him. The heartfelt images of healing at Mother Emanuel are as sobering as the realization that had Barack Obama raised his voice to sing for single-payer, a great chorus would have joined in.
The musical content in Senator Booker’s essay and its publication at Billboard, a strong pillar of the music industry make for appropriate territory to promote our song about Senator Booker and his copyright infringement crew. “Cory Booker, Where’s My Motherloving Money?” can be heard at www.adamjackson.com. It’s based off of a sample from Charles Jackson’s “Love of You” and we’d appreciate contact with Charles Jackson. Thanks and peace. E. Adam Jackson 1/29/17 A.D.
