Double Agent: Marco Rubio Caught Making Different Amnesty Claims to Spanish, English Audiences

What do I say now? ¿Qué le digo ahora?

-

On Monday, a majority of Senate Republicans voted to continue debate of the disastrous 'Gang of Eight' amnesty bill, surprising many when the vote easily cleared the required 60 threshold, 82-15.

The reason many Republicans trust that a bill they haven't even read will "secure the border first" is because Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has assured them it would - endlessly. He even wen't on a record-tying FIVE Sunday news shows to assert this (and a avalanche of other lies), and assured audiences he would never back a bill that did not secure the border first, before amnesty. And Rubio claimed the Gang's bill did exactly that.

Yesterday, Rubio made fools of many of his colleagues - who should have known better anyway - and was exposed as a bald-faced liar after being caught making totally different claims about the bill - on Spanish and English media.

If you were listening - on either side of the issue - Rubio told you exactly what you wanted to hear.

In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision (video here, translation here) Sen. Rubio made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation’s tens of millions of illegal aliens must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements.

Let’s be clear. Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence. What we’re talking about here is the system of permanent residence. As for the legalization, the enormous majority of my colleagues have accepted that it has to happen and that it has to begin at the same time we begin the measures for [the border]. It is not conditional. The legalization is not conditional.
To put it mildly, this is very different from what Rubio has told English-speaking audiences, especially on shows like Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh - who were instrumental in helping the former "Tea Party darling" prevail in his tough Senate primary in 2010. For months now, Rubio has repeatedly, endlessly, claimed that border security would come first, before any legalization. Rubio has further asserted that he could and would never support a bill that didn't secure the border first.

In a nutshell, he lied through his teeth to these hosts who constantly praised him as a "good guy", "honest", "conservative", Senator they supported. While we activists screamed "snap out of it" they continued like this for months, praising Rubio's "effort to solve the problem" while ignoring dozens of articles and analyses proving that his claims were full of lies.

His greatest talker champion has been the disappointing Sean Hannity, who infamously announced after the 2012 election that had "evolved" on immigration, and supported a "pathway to citizenship" for tens of millions of illegals. Hannity has repeatedly stood by Rubio, even when other began to realize what we activists had been screaming: Rubio is lying, stop promoting him.

But yesterday, something changed. Rush Limbaugh seemed confused, expressing "disappointment" with Rubio.  Even Rubio's greatest "conservative" champion Hannity seemed to finally get that something was amiss.

Hannity asked Rubio about the Univision interview. Rubio responded with his usual technique, familiar to anyone who has ever negotiated a used car: talk faster, and change the subject. It didn't satisfy Hannity as it has in the past.

“Why wouldn’t it be better to just secure the border first totally and then move forward with dealing with the 11 million people or so that are in the country illegally?”

“That’s how I felt at the beginning, too,” Rubio answered, “The problem I encountered is what do I do in the meantime — ”

“How about nothing?” Hannity interrupted.

Rubio gave his usual canards: we have to "know who's here" so we can "deport the criminals" (How? Are they are going to turn themselves in?); we have to "freeze the problem" or more illegals will come in (How? Without a border fence, illegals will just stop coming in out of courtesy to Marco?); etc. Absurdities all.

Hannity twice returned to Rubio’s statement on Univision. “You understand that people read the interview, those of us that didn’t speak Spanish, and it was interpreted as first comes legalization, then comes secure the border, that legalization is not conditional. I think you would then understand why people thought this.”

“Right,” Rubio said. “So maybe, I probably should have been more artful in the use of terms.”

"The Artful Liar". Terrific. And what is especially disturbing is his saying one thing to Spanish-speaking audiences, and the exact opposite in English. This is exactly what Arabs like Yasser Arafat have done for years - promising "peace" in English and "jihad" (holy war) to Arabic audiences. We know who always got the truth from Arafat.

Are there any conservatives out there who still support or trust this guy?

Here are some extended excerpts from the Hannity interview.

The Amnesty bill must be stopped.call congress.

30 million illegals get Amnesty to vote in 2014 election

those 30 million can bring in 50 million more of their relatives still in the 3rd world.

30 million more illegals will invade to do the “under the table” jobs

untold millions will cross into the USA to get in on the
Amnesty bonanza.

if this bill passes the USA is done

these representatives in Congress are traitors against
Americans .

Rubio would need to challenge Charlie Crist head on ~ no third party guy in the mix! I think Charlie's draw with the old ladies and homosexuals is such that Rubio would lose ~ unless, of course, he started performing inappropriate sex acts in public ~ which, given his track record, could not be ruled out!

We can see him speaking of 'artful techniques'...

His ad supporting the amnesty bill is maddening.

The illegals will supposedly pay fines, not qualify for obamacare, not qualify for welfare and on and on. What the F is he smoking to believe that? Every one of those things is a lie.

What do we do sit here and complain on the Internet when we should be protesting in the streets, outside of Congress as they prepare to give Amnesty to these immigrant creeps.protests, marches, no we sit here while they take our country away.

At least we should be calling Congressmen non stop, emailing , twitter ,paper letters( an effective method) etc.

I am writing something up to give these congressmen a piece of my mind

**************************************************************
Listening to Rush Limbaugh today, I got the feeling that Rush is moving past the “disappointed” stage and beginning to arrive at the same conclusion many of us came to long ago—Rubio is a sell-out of both his party and his country.

I hope Rush starts turning his heavy guns in an anti-amnesty direction. Time is getting late (hopefully it’s not already too late) and every concerned American needs to speak up to stop this betrayal.

Rubio was pro amnesty from day 1. He back tracked for awhile when he saw the conservative base of Republicans were against it. Now he wants to talk out of both sides of his mouth, in two languages!

Today in the Senate Schumer said it will take “years and years and years” to secure the border. This agrees with Rubio’s spanish statement.

BUT RUBIO LIED IN HIS ENGLISH STATEMENT.

Not only is he a liar, he is a racist.

"I hope Alan West primaries him in 2016."

You mean, the Alan West that when asked if he was going to address the clear eligibility issues surrounding the usurper...West stated:

"Well I can’t do anything with this because I might run for political office."

Putting political ambitions ahead of defending the Constitution. All of it. Including Article II, Section I, Clause 5.

That Alan West?

West has hardly been the only one to dodge that question, Hannity, Limbaugh, and SCOTUS, to name a few.
The so called Birther movement gained zero traction. It was unfortunate, but as Rumsfield famously said, “you go to war with the Army you have.”

you know, I think what’s needed is a class action suit against the govt for not enforcing the laws regarding our borders. we don’t need more laws or agreements... no horse trading required... the laws are on the books and are being ignored to further their political agenda

this has to stop

a class action suit against those hired to insure these laws are upheld is the only way.

and the class action needs teeth. if their inaction resulted in any crimes... then those that enabled it should face the same penalty as if they conspired to commit the crime.

How about “No!’?

That’s the same in both languages, Rubio.

This bill is treason to America.

And all who support it are traitors.

These clowns are supposed to represent the American people, not the Mexicans and Guatamalans.

Every other country in the world does not permit you to be there illegally—they kick your butt out.

Who says we have to be different?
