  • Rubio on Trump: First a Con Man, Now Better Than Clinton

    ABC News ^ | 8/23/2016 | brendan farrington
    A dangerous, erratic, con man with the worst spray tan ever. That's how Sen. Marco Rubio described Donald Trump when they were both seeking the Republican presidential nomination. Now that Trump is the nominee and Rubio is running for re-election, his tone is different. He is no longer criticizing Trump, but he isn't exactly gushing praise. Democrats are trying to make him look like a hypocrite for backing the man he previously said shouldn't have access to nuclear weapon codes, and for jumping back into the Senate race after he said he wouldn't. "Sen. Rubio is actually the real con...

    Open Society Foundations, Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros stated vehicle for progressive social change, orchestrated a well-funded attempt to secure a desired outcome in a U.S. Supreme Court case on illegal immigration enforcement, according to a newly discovered memo between the organizations top U.S. officials and board members. The February 2016 memo was among thousands of internal OSF documents released to the public by anonymous hackers whose stated goal is to shed light on one of the most influential networks operating worldwide. OSF U.S. Programs director Ken Zimmerman and deputy director Andrea Batista Schlesinger co-authored the memo, which is addressed to...

    Left-wing billionaire George Soros non-profit network, the Open Society Foundations (OSF), is confident about the future success of its work in the field of immigration activism and may embark on a massive campaign on immigration issues in the near future. Thats according to a candid 62-page document reviewing OSFs work on immigration reform discussed in May at the groups board meeting in Montgomery, Ala. The document, which is one of 2,500 stolen from OSF in a massive hack and released over the weekend, shows that the Soros group believes that its $7.7 million investment in groups pushing for immigration reform...

    Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) is trailing her Democratic rival, Gov. Maggie Hassan, by 10 points in what has been one of the tightest Senate races in the country, according to a new poll from WBUR Radio. The poll, which was conducted between July 19 and Aug. 1, shows 50 percent of respondents saying they would vote for Hassan if the election were held today, compared with 40 percent for Ayotte. Ayotte is one of the most vulnerable GOP senators up for reelection in a year in which Republicans can afford to lose only three seats if they hope to maintain...

One after another, Republican candidates some who had campaigned for more than a year dropped out last week rather than face Rubio, one of the GOPs leading figures nationwide. U.S. Sen.

"I think it would be foolish to ignore them." McCain recently said privately that with Trump as the GOP's nominee, his re-election chances this year in Arizona are in danger.

But apparently someone forgot to tell the people Rubio turnout for at Hialeah stadium in southeast Florida. When he attends such rallies, it has to be obvious to him. Meanwhile, Trump, who is leading in the polls is getting these types of turnouts in Flrida. 'nuff said.

    In a hardening of his position, Marco Rubio told CNN on Thursday that he'd immediately "get rid of" a 2012 executive program by President Barack Obama to temporarily let young undocumented people brought to the U.S. stay and work. The program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, has shielded some 650,000 young people from deportation. "I said that DACA has to go away and that it will," Rubio told Jake Tapper in an interview. "I will, on my first day in office, get rid of it because it's unconstitutional. I was against it when the president did...

    In a CNN townhall, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) may have raised eyebrows by siding with the common progressive claim that systemic racism in America’s police departments is victimizing black Americans. During Wednesday’s townhall, a questioner asked Rubio about race relations in the United States. Although the voter’s question made no mention whatsoever of law enforcement or the police, Rubio was quick to use it as an opportunity to question the racial attitudes of American police. Rubio then proceeded to cite accounts of police targeting minorities. “You talk about race relations, it’s a difficult issue in this country,” Rubio said, “And...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)rejects Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-FL) latest attempt to rewrite history on the Gang of Eight immigration bill. Contrary to Rubio's stunning claim that his Senate-passed plan was "not headed towards becoming law," Sessions says that Rubio's amnesty plan "was on the verge of being passed. Paul Ryan had the votes to get it passed."

    While a boy's face on a man's body may be the romantic ideal for some, it serves only to reinforce Republican primary voters skepticism about Sen. Marco Rubio's lack of skepticism about government interventionism. The Florida senator's political instincts have led him to believe, among other things, that the US immigration crisis can only be addressed through comprehensive reform, a mutually-exclusive term favored by pundits, progressives, and soft values Republicans like Rubio.

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | February 14, 2016 | Julia Hahn
    In what could arguably be seen as another debate debacle for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), the Florida Senator seemed to confirm Phyllis Schlafly's assertion that he is "back to his old ways" of deceiving conservatives on immigration. In response to attacks leveled against him by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rubio made a demonstrably and provably false declaration about his position on President Obama's executive amnesty. Rubio even accused Cruz of "telling lies" about his position on executive amnesty- even though nationally-televised video footage of Marco Rubio confirms Cruz's allegation, and reveals that Rubio lied in front of a nation-wide viewing...

    On Monday’s “Mark Levin Show,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) 80% disputed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% ’s (R-FL) claims regarding the passage battle of the 2013 Gang of Eight immigration bill. After he was asked about the Gang of Eight bill, Sessions said that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% , along with him and others, opposed the bill, and offered amendments to try and kill the bill. He added that Cruz was effective in lobbying members of the House against the bill. Sessions further stated that he doesn’t remember Rubio’s recollection that the House was going to improve the Gang...

    GOP presidential hopeful Marco Rubio on Monday said a controversial immigration reform bill he helped negotiate in 2013 was never meant to pass the Congress. As a member of the so-called "Gang of 8," the Florida senator negotiated an immigration compromise between Republicans and Democrats. But the bill never made it past conservatives in the House who complained it provided a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Rubio has taken criticism from fellow GOP presidential candidates for his role in the immigration package. On Monday, he suggested the bill was for show and he never expected House Republicans to go...
