If this came from Rubio, he needs a wake up call. This is the sort of thing you expect out of liberal-emote, not out of conservative-think.
I fully agree.
I want to say a word to all those who continue to think Rubio is a good guy...just naive
He was handpicked for this job by Norquist and Conda (and likely Rove/the Bushs). The financing of this sham is coming out of unions, microsoft, hijacked tea parties and the KOCH Bros. who finance Norquist, ATR, Cato.
IT IS ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY!
Our problem is most GOP, and many I was being pelted by last night here on FR, still hangs on to their sacred cows for dear life...like the Kochs, ATR, CPAC, Cato,Marco Rubio!
They dont care about you! WAKE UP!
WHO IS CESAR CONDA?
[snip]Then rides in the great Tea Party Hispanic savior, Marco Rubio to save us. Because he looks more like the opposition. He speaks the language of the NEW constituency! Hes the GOPs latest token trojan horse.
Who is really behind Marco Rubio, and what do they want? The Tea Party citizens thought it was them!!! He talked the talk, and fooled us all. No, he hasnt been taken over by Obama and the left, as far as we know. He is part of the enemy within the right. And for the past 30 years, it is always the same players. They are lobbyists who our legislators hire to write our legislation because most of our elected officials let them in exchange for campaign dollars. It is ALWAYS follow the money.
Even John Ross willingly sacrificed his own people to keep his power and to hold out for more federal dollars for Cherokee lands. The Cherokee Tribe was destroyed because they were incapable of realizing who their real enemies were. It appears we are no more enlightened than the savages. We have no excuse for our ignorance, other than BLIND loyalty to sacred cows who should have been hamburger by now!
Meet Cesar Conda, chief of staff, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., close associate and fellow amnesty pusher of Grover Norquist, who last week called all of us who want our borders secured, Bitter enders, He might as well have called us Savages.
Here is detailed some of the undermining of immigration law these two have accomplished over 3 decades, including working closely with Stephen Moore of the Cato Institute, Conda circulated a statement against Prop. 187 of California in the nineties. The race baiting they pulled on Alan Simpson when he tried to enforce the borders in the 90s was nothing but disgusting.
Conda, an immigration lawyer, was Vice President Dick Cheneys chief domestic policy adviser. After leaving there, Conda went to work for George Soros on the editorial advisory board of the Soros publication, The International Economy Magazine.
Even amnesty pushers on the left like Conda!
[snip] I think Cesar is the right man for the job, said Frank Sharry, founder and executive director of the pro-immigration reform group Americas Voice. Rubio is really lucky to have Cesar Conda as his chief of staff. Conda...has been working on the issue since the early 1990s when he was part of a group of young, libertarian-minded, pro-immigration conservatives. His government experience runs deep: He worked for former Sen. Spencer Abraham, R-Mich., and was an aide to Vice President Dick Cheney. He also spent time in the private sector as a lobbyist and analyst for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and founded the Washington office of a consulting firm called Navigators Global.
Conda was also involved with The National Foundation for American Policy, a Newt Gingrich group. Dont be fooled, Newt is all about amnesty and has always been!
Started in 2003, the National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to public policy research on trade, immigration, and other issues of national importance. Its Advisory Board members include ....Cesar Conda.... and other prominent individuals.
This statement sums up the Rubio/Conda relationship:
The White Houses lawyer-friendly draft shows that it has outsourced the formation of immigration policy to the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said Camarota. Some of the eight senators also employ staffers who are trained immigration lawyers or who have lobbied for the immigration association before. In 2003, for example, Cesar Conda, Rubios chief of staff, lobbied the White House on behalf of the lawyers association....Given Sen. Rubios role in a smear campaign [using SPLC talking points] against pro-enforcement groups, said Steve Camarota, the research director at the Center for Immigration Studies, it does raise the question of how serious he is about enforcement.
Conda worked as an advocate for the immigration lawyers association.
As a founding partner of a lobbying firm, Navigators Global, he attended a 2003 meeting in the White House to promote a policy favored by the lawyers group, which stands to gain enormously from any law that expands or complicates immigration law.
In the late 1990s, Conda also worked as the legislative director for one-term GOP Sen. Spencer Abraham. In 2000, Abraham lost his Michigan Senate seat after NumbersUSA highlighted Abrahams role in defeating a bipartisan immigration reform bill that would have curbed legal and illegal immigration.
During that 1996 immigration debate, Abraham opposed an employee-identification plan in the bill that would have required and helped employers reject applicants who were not allowed to legally work in the United States.
Conda had a part in the expensive bank bail outs.
At this lobbying outfit, Cesar Conda is one of the lobbyists on the Citigroup account. Previously, DC Navigators was one of AIGs go-to firmsuntil the insurance company halted its lobbying efforts last fall under congressional pressure. AIG, which has received $182 billion from the government, including $40 billion in TARP funds, spent more than $9 million on lobbying in 2008
Conda was a lobbyist for private prisons who love open borders and government $$$ to incarcerate illegal aliens.
They also now have a paid lobbyist working in the office of a Republican Senator at the forefront of the immigration debate, in a state with major immigration issues. Take for example the chief of staff to young Republican superstar Marco Rubio, Cesar Conda. Conda still maintains ties to a powerful lobbying firm in Florida that has lobbied for the GEO Group. In fact, he still maintains partial ownership, and was paid between $50,000-$100,000 by the firm after he became Rubios chief of staff.. So hes still being paid by companies like the GEO Group while working as the number-one guy to a US Senator. So the GEO Group has revenues of nearly $2 billion per year, much of which comes from the federal government as payment for detaining immigrants. It has spent more than $5 million in lobbying and political contributions in the past 8 years
Remember when we warned the Tea Party about getting involved with Dick Armeys Freedom works because he has always been pro amnesty??.....
Cesar Conda is a senior fellow at Freedom Works and an editorial advisory board member of International Economy Magazine. He is a volunteer policy advisor to the Mitt Romney presidential campaign.
Conda actually states here that the Gang of 8 plan isnt AMNESTY!! You need no more than that to know you are being CONNED BIG TIME!
Think of it! illegal aliens vote democrat. Fact. They believe it is Obama working for them. All these GOP open border amnesty purveyors like Conda get no credit for the decades of work theyve done on the behalf of foreign nationals. Instead, Obama gets all their glory. Ignorance never changes. And History repeats itself.
