American Victims of Illegal Alien Crime Urge Nation: ‘Reject Rubio’

American victims of illegal alien crime are urging Republican voters across the nation: “Reject Rubio.” The families who have had loved ones murdered, raped, maimed, and tortured to death by illegal criminal aliens warn that Rubio is “the single most egregious congressional promoter of open borders.” The letter details how Rubio promulgated “daily lies” to the American people about his border-opening 2013 immigration bill — a bill which would have granted amnesty to illegal alien sex offenders, gang members, and criminal convicts — but which Sen. Rubio described as “The Toughest Border Security & Enforcement Measures In U.S. History”. To this day, Rubio continues to support all of the major substantive policies outlined within that bill, including expanding immigration levels and granting citizenship — and, thereby, welfare access and voting privileges — to illegal aliens. “We do not want other families to die at the hands of illegal aliens,” the American victims of the nation’s open borders immigration policies write, “We want to end the massacre of innocents in exchange for enriching open border self-interest cartels. We are pleading with the Republican voter: Reject Rubio. Send a message to every politician in Washington D.C.: if you betray American citizens, you will never occupy the Oval Office.”

Very interesting..  There is NO doubt that Marco Rubio is VERY weak on the immigration issue, and his membership in that infamous “Gang of Eight” only makes it worse.  This takes it to a whole new level, though.

Ann Coulter Tweets Rubio Is Running ‘Anti-White’ Campaign

On Friday, the day before the South Carolina primary, Ann Coulter responded fiercely to answers Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) gave about racism when questioned at a CNN townhall only days before. Coulter accused Rubio of running an “anti-white campaign.” Rubio was asked by Joshua Goodwin, vice chair of the Upstate Young Republicans, “I would like to know how would you simultaneously address the issue of racism, yet unify us as a country?” Rubio answered: ” It’s a difficult issue in this country. I can tell you, and I know a lot of it is centered around law enforcement and police departments. So let me begin by saying very clearly, I know for a fact that the overwomen — overwhelming majority of the men and women who serve us in law enforcement are incredible people, who, every single day, put their lives potentially on the line for our safety and for our security.” He continued, “But I also know, but I also know that there are communities in this country where minority communities and the police department have a terrible relationship. I personally know someone who happens to be a police officer and a young African-American male, who told me that he has been pulled over seven, eight times in the last four years and never gets a ticket. What is he supposed to think? Segueing to the black community, Rubio added: ” So I also know that in this country, there is a significant number, particularly of young African-American males, who feel as if they’re treated differently than the rest of society. And here’s the bottom line, whether you agree with them or not, I happen to have seen this happen. But whether you agree with them or not, if a significant percentage of the American family believes that they are being treated differently than everyone else, we have a problem. And we have to address it as a society and as a country, because I do not believe we can fulfill our potential as a nation unless we address that.” Moderator Anderson Cooper followed by asking, “On a personal basis, have you ever felt the sting the racism?” Rubio responded: ” You know, let me tell you a couple things, my parents were extraordinary people. My parents raised me to believe that it didn’t matter that they came from Cuba and that he was a bartender and she was a maid. There was nothing that we couldn’t do. I do recall as a child during the Boat Lift in growing up in Las Vegas that some of the neighborhood kids – older kids, one day were taunting my family. The were saying, “why don’t go back on your boat, why don’t you go back to your country, why don’t leave here.” I didn’t know what they were talking about, I was seven years old.” Rubio argued against claiming victimhood, stating: ” What I give my parents a lot of credit is that they never raised us to feel that we were victims. They always raised us to believe that our destiny and our future – we lived in the one place on earth where if you worked hard and you persevered, you could achieve no matter what. That doesn’t mean that I don’t deny that there are people in this country that have had a different experience. We need to recognize that. If you look back at the history of this country we have some blemishes in our history that I believe even to this day, we’re fighting through. But what I think is extraordinary about America is that we have fought through that.” He concluded, “If you look at how far South Carolina has come from where it is today to where it was 30 to 40 years ago, simply amazing. In my campaign for president today, I got the endorsement of a governor of Indian decent, who endorsed a presidential candidate of Cuban decent, and tomorrow will be campaigning alongside an African American Republican Senator, all three are doing that here inside South Carolina.” Coulter started with two tweets on Friday: “Poor Jeb! can’t figure out why Haley endorsed Rubio over him. He’s one of those awful white men! Live by “diversity,” die by “diversity.” — Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) February 18, 2016

Wow..  And there is more where that came from.  To read the rest of this article, click on the text above.  I had NO idea that Marco played the race card like that.  Wow…  That’s the sorta crap we expect from Democrats; NOT Republicans.  Marco almost sounds like Obama!  So, kudos to Ann for calling him out like that!

Schlafly unloads on Rubio: ‘He betrayed us all’ – Conservative icon calls media favorite ‘lackey for the establishment’

In 2009, Marco Rubio was a plucky challenger for the open Senate seat in Florida, taking on incumbent Republican Gov. Charlie Crist. Though Rubio was trailing in the polls, one leading conservative activist thought he had real potential and vowed to help him. “When Marco Rubio ran for the Senate in Florida, I think I was the first one to endorse him,” said Phyllis Schlafly. “I made a trip down to Florida in 2009 just for the purpose of helping him.” But Schlafly, a legendary conservative activist, author and WND columnist, now says she is bitterly disappointed by Rubio’s record. “Once he got elected, he betrayed us all,” she told WND. “He said he was against amnesty and against the establishment. And once he got in, right away, he became an agent of the establishment. And now, of course, he’s big for amnesty and letting all the illegal immigrants in. He betrayed us a number of times on that issue.” Schlafly said she was startled at the magnitude of Rubio’s “betrayal” on amnesty. “It was so public,” she said. “He’s a lackey for the establishment now,” she said. “There’s no question they’re picking up as Plan B – or maybe Plan C in this election cycle, or whatever we’re on now – but he certainly is an establishment agent.” Rubio has been moving up in the polls since his third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses. But Rubio’s record has drawn new attention since Sen. Rick Santorum, after dropping out of the presidential race and endorsing the Florida senator, found himself tongue tied when asked on MSNBC to name Rubio’s greatest accomplishment. Rubio is best known for co-sponsoring the “Gang of 8” immigration amnesty bill, partnering with Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to allow a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and dramatically increase legal immigration. Rubio was also identified by Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., as the person designated to “neutralize” and “proselytize” conservative opposition. Schlafly urged conservatives not to underestimate the importance of the immigration issue. “Immigration right now is the biggest issue. All you need to do is look at Europe, and you can see that,” she said. “But there are other issues like trade where Rubio has aligned with the establishment against the American worker.” Though Rubio has been criticized for his poor attendance record in the Senate, he did manage to attend the session that granted President Obama powers to fast-track the Trans-Pacific Partnership as well as future trade agreements. “Trade is a big issue,” Schlafly argued. “The whole thing with how they are pushing these trade agreements and mass immigration is a cheat and a lie to the American people. And Rubio has joined the group that is pushing it.” Schlafly also criticized Rubio’s foreign-policy credentials, as early in his term of office the freshman Florida senator enthusiastically backed President Obama’s campaign to remove the regime of Moammar Gadhafi in Libya. Libya has since become a stronghold for ISIS. “That didn’t get us anywhere,” said Schlafly. Schlafly, who has spoken highly of both Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz, slammed “the establishment’s” determination to select the Republican candidate. “They’re the people who have been picking losers all these years, and we want the grassroots to have a crack at it,” she said. She criticized Rubio as just the latest front man for the “kingmakers” she has denounced her entire career. The narrative of Rubio as the “establishment choice” is also becoming part of the presidential campaign. Ted Cruz, campaigning in New Hampshire after his victory in Iowa, slyly has portrayed Rubio as the choice of the elites rather than the grassroots. “I understand that in the media newsrooms and in the Washington establishment circles, Marco is the chosen one,” he said. He also joked, “In the media’s telling, bronze is the new gold,” referring to the widespread treatment of Rubio’s third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses as a great success. Schlafly urged conservatives not to take any chances with the election. “Just look at what [Sen.] Jeff Sessions said – this is the last chance to save the America,” she said. “Immigration is the issue.” She dismissed any hopes Rubio could redeem himself to conservatives. “As soon as he got in there, he betrayed us all,” she reiterated. “Don’t make it look like I’m supporting him now.”

Some pretty rough language from ol’ Phyllis.  But, she DOES have a good point.  Rubio Marco (R-FL) is a good guy, and would most definitely be a universe of improvement over Obama (and certainly Hillary or Bernie).  BUT…  He HAS sold out on the whole immigration issue.  And, so Phyllis has thrown her solid support behind the Donald.  Illegal immigration IS the issue this next election, no doubt.

Marco Rubio: USA at ‘Water’s Edge’ of Declaring Christianity ‘Hate Speech’

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 81% is worried that freedom of speech and freedom of religion both are endangered by a growing leftist bigotry that is rising in the country. Religion in particular is facing a “real and present danger” of being labeled “hate speech,” he said. In an interview with CBN News, Rubio discussed his strong Catholic faith, saying that it might not be long before that faith is turned into a crime. “If you think about it,” Rubio said, “we are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech. Because today we’ve reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage, you are labeled a homophobe and a hater.” Rubio pointed out that the logical end game for liberals who have already begun to persecute and prosecute individual Christians is ultimately to outlaw the faith itself. “After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church is hate speech, and there’s a real and present danger,” he said. During the interview Rubio said that Christian beliefs must be allowed to flourish but that politics is infringing on that religious freedom. Following that line of thought, at the end of April, Rubio insisted that it is “ridiculous and absurd” to imagine that there is some sort of Constitutional right to gay marriage. “It doesn’t exist. There is no federal constitutional right to same sex-marriage. There isn’t such a right,” Rubio said on CBN’s “The Brody File” show. “You would have to really have a ridiculous and absurd reading of the U.S. Constitution to reach the conclusion that people have a right to marry someone of the same sex,” he added. In the same interview, Rubio also said that the issue of same-sex marriage is one that should be handled in the states but that gay activists prefer to try forcing a federal law to bind the whole country because they can’t win on the local level.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is exactly right here.  We have our differences with the good Senator, especially on issues like immigration.  But, on this issue, he absolutely nails it!

First Bergdahl, now Gross— Obama ‘worst negotiator’ since Jimmy Carter

First President Obama traded five Guantanamo terror detainees for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, now he swapped three Cuban spies for Alan Gross — moves that drew criticism slamming him as the ‘worst negotiator’ as president since Jimmy Carter.

Indeed.  And, again, Obama is making another end-run around Congress.  These spies were responsible, in part, for shooting down that American private Cesna that had Christian missionaries a few years ago.  Remember that?  Anyway, we’re getting NOTHING out of this, other than the release of Mr. Goss (which don’t get me wrong is great news!…but not at the expense of what we lost)….oh and maybe some nice Cuban cigars.  By doing this, Obama has recklessly thrown out the window an economic embargo policy to isolate the Castro brothers, and their tyrannical government, that’s been in place for over 55 years, and supported by Presidents both Republican AND Democrat!  But, as usual, Obama puts his extreme leftist ideology above all else, and couldn’t pass up this opportunity to appease yet another communist/socialist dictator/thug. This time, however, those thugs are less than 100 miles from America.

Speaking as the son of Cuban immigrants, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) made an impassioned, emotional, and very articulate criticism of Obama and this outrageous change in policy that is NOT in America’s national security or economic interests, or in the interests of so many Cubans crying out for an end to the tyrannical rule of the Castro brothers.  The Cuban American immigrant community in Miami-Dade County, FL, from which Sen. Rubio (R-FL) hails from, is outraged and has taken to the streets to protest Obama’s new appeasement of Havana.  We must not forget that it was the Cuban government for decades which had a close military, strategic, and economic alliance with Moscow during our Cold War with Russia.   And, only recently, a Russian destroyer was spotted in port in Havana….again, less than 100 miles from our shores.
