MARCO RUBIO, THE ASPEN INSTITUTE, AND THE CFR

The NWO Establishment: If we can’t get Jeb, well take Rubio

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. —Samuel Adams

Marco Rubio Affiliations

The Aspen Institute is sort of an American Bilderberger Group. In addition to the globalist Aspen and Brookings Institutes, there are a staggering number of private groups that shape and command American policy, including the CFR, and Trilateral Commission, etc. Nearly every elected official is influenced by them, and this includes Marco Rubio. The Aspen Institute is largely funded by one world government foundations such as the Carnegie Corporation, The Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Ford Foundation, none of whom have freedom and liberty as their top priorities.

Surely most folks remember that UN Agenda 21 author and promoter, Maurice Strong, was the Director of the Aspen Institute for some years. If you like Smart Growth and the elimination of property rights, you’ll love Agenda 21 and the Aspen Institute.

Aspen Institute named Marco Rubio as one of the top young elected officials to its third class of Aspen-Rodel fellows. The Institute’s Rodel Fellowships in Public Leadership program brings together bipartisan groups of public officials judged to be the rising stars of American politics. Isn’t that just lovely?

Aspen Institute President, Walter Isaacson, said the Rodel Fellows “represent the best hope for America’s future—upcoming leaders committed to working together for the common good.” The “common good” is code for the globalist socialist agenda of destroying free market growth and leveling all the playing fields.

Scroll down in the article to see the list of names including Marco Rubio, along with the photo of Rubio as Aspen Inst. Rodel fellow. [Link]

Walter Isaacson is the former head and CEO of CNN and the Managing Editor of Time Magazine. Aspen participates in the Ethical Globalization Initiative (EGI), headed by former UN official Mary Robinson, who calls the International Criminal Court, which could prosecute and imprison US citizens, “a great legal enterprise.” Isaacson serves on the EGI board, along with global tax supporter, Jeffrey Sachs, an advisor to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. George Soros is extremely involved in the Aspen Institute. [Link] Sure doesn’t make me feel warm and cozy. And there you have Marco Rubio…

Marco Rubio and the CFR

The Washington Post reported on Marco Rubio’s speech at the Council on Foreign Relations in May of 2015. He was invited to speak on foreign policy with member Charlie Rose, and was introduced by the president of the CFR, Richard Haass. Link

The American Conservative believes Rubio’s speech was pretty lame, but you can decide for yourself. He stated that America’s role in the world is as a security guarantor. Rubio also claimed as president, he would “use the American power to oppose any violations of international waters, airspace, cyberspace, or outer space. This includes the economic disruption caused when one country invades another, as well as the chaos caused by disruptions in chokepoints such as the South China Sea or the Strait of Hormuz.”

Personally, I do not believe we have any business being the world’s policeman, and neither do I believe the president has the right to use any military power without Congress’s approval.

The New American article on Rubio’s CFR speech, stated, “Were the 2016 election to be a contest between Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton, the future of U.S. foreign policy would be clear. It would mean a continuation of the same policies that have dominated our nation since the onset of World War II — interventionism, more war, and more casualties.”

Rubio’s Liberal Voting Record

Is it any wonder Rubio has been named an Aspen-Rodel fellow, or invited to speak at the Council on Foreign Relations? Take a look at his voting record and you’ll see why these organizations love Senator Rubio.

Amnesty and Refugees – The Rubio-Schumer Gang of Eight amnesty bill likely would not have passed the Senate had Rubio not been such a prolific supporter. [Link], [Link] He’s now waffling on the fact that he is a great supporter of illegal aliens gaining citizenship.

Senator Rand Paul wanted to restrict the amount of Muslims entering our country, and his amendment would have suspended visas to 30 Muslim countries with Jihadist populations. Rubio, on the other hand stated that he would “hate” to block funding for Obama’s refugees. (Yes they’re Obama’s, they’re certainly not main stream American’s ideas of good immigrants.) Rubio even stated he felt limiting Muslim migration might be unconstitutional. Excuse me lawyer Rubio, but you obviously haven’t read any of our immigration laws lately. Needless to say, Rubio joined the rest of the Ryan moderate (euphemism for socialist) Republicans in voting down Rand Paul’s amendment.

Rubio has been one of the most ardent champions for increasing Muslim migration. The U.S. has admitted roughly 1.5 million migrants from Muslim countries since 9/11 on a permanent lifetime basis. Yet Rubio has sought to grow that number vastly. In 2015, Rubio introduced an immigration bill which would have allowed for an unlimited increase in Muslim migration. [Link]

One wonders if Rubio’s love of amnesty is payback. His grandfather was ordered deported by a judge after flying in from Cuba without a visa. [Link]

Trade Agreements – Remember Ted Cruz voting for Fast Track for the TPP trade agreement? Well guess who cast the deciding 60th vote to give Obama Fast Track?

Yep, it was Marco Rubio!

The entire purpose of fast-track is for Congress to surrender its power to the Executive for six years. Legislative concessions include: control over the content of legislation, the power to fully consider that legislation on the floor, the power to keep debate open until Senate cloture is invoked, and the constitutional requirement that treaties receive a two-thirds vote. Legislation cannot even be amended.

By contrast, without fast-track, Congress retains all of its legislative powers, individual members retain all of their procedural tools, and every single line, jot, and tittle of trade text is publicly available before any congressional action is taken. [Link]

Tell me again how Republicans are the stop gap to Obama’s destruction of America!

Food Stamp Reform – Marco Rubio is almost the only republican to take the democrat’s side on this bill. The bill would have saved taxpayers about 10 billion a year by blocking families with substantial assets from receiving food stamps.

When Rubio served as speaker in the Florida House, he stopped bills from coming to the floor that would have deported illegal immigrants in state prisons and that would have denied food stamps to illegal immigrants.

He even stopped a bipartisan proposal that would have allowed the deportation of about 5,000 illegal immigrants in Florida prisons, provided they had served half their sentence and agreed to be deported. Similar legislation saved $141 million and $13 million in prison costs in New York and Arizona.

Cap and Trade – As Florida speaker, Marco Rubio aggressively pushed for Florida to adapt to the inevitable federal “cap and trade program.” Cap and trade is an environmental system that hardcore liberals including former Vice President Al Gore support. A federal cap and trade program would be centered around a carbon tax.

Watch Rubio Back Cap and Trade:

Worst Attendance Record – Rubio’s attendance record for votes is one of the worst in Senate history. His seat is regularly empty for floor votes, committee meetings and intelligence briefings. He even missed the vote on Obama’s Omnibus bill which he probably would have voted for anyway, although he stated the outcome was predetermined.

That outrageous $1.1 Trillion Omnibus Bill funds the most horrendous programs, which also locks in huge spending increases!

funds entirely Obama’s 2012 executive amnesty for “DREAMers”—or illegal immigrants who came to the country as minors and has granted around 700,000 illegal aliens with work permits, as well as the ability to receive tax credits and federal entitlement programs
funds sanctuary cities (remember Kathryn Steinle)
funds all refugee programs
funds illegal alien resettlement
quadruples H-2B foreign worker visas
funds the release of criminal aliens
funds tax credits for illegal aliens, and much more

Political Influence

While the Majority Whip of Florida House, Rubio used his official position to urge state regulators to grant a real estate license to his brother-in-law, a convicted cocaine trafficker who had been released from prison 20 months earlier, according to records obtained by The Washington Post. [Link]

Marco Rubio’s brother-in-law was the ‘front man’ for a multi-million dollar cocaine-smuggling ring headed by a drug kingpin who ran the operation from an exotic animal sanctuary, it has been revealed.

Orlando Cicilia was arrested for his part in the illicit operation in 1987 during Miami’s narcotics heyday when Republican presidential hopeful Rubio was just 16. Cicilia, 58, who is now working as a real estate agent, served just 12 years in prison despite being sentenced to 35 for his part in the scheme.

Conclusion

American Bridge put out a Marco Rubio Report in 2012. It is 500 pages long, but tells a great deal about Rubio. Take a gander at it…really telling.

It appears as though we have a socialist Democrat running as a conservative on the GOP ticket….again.

Stay tuned, there’s more to come, soon.

The Candidate’s Stance on Accepting Syrian Refugees Into the United States

My comments:  Although I like what this article says, there are a few items that aren’t fully factual. I’d suggest checking out some of these candidates in this article regarding their stance on illegal aliens and amnesty.

REPOSTED FROM COACHISRIGHT.COM

The recent murders in Paris by Muslim “refugees” has transformed the question of bringing potentially dangerous individuals to the United States into perhaps the most important topic of the 2016 Election. I’ve included Porter’s collected information both on current candidates and those who have dropped out of the race.

by John Porter, guest writer

That you may be properly informed, here you will be provided the presidential candidates’ stance on the Syrian Refugee crisis from their own mouths. I have listed first those who support the U.S. taking in these people from Syria and public quotes from each one of them, followed by those who are opposed to it. Read them all and you will know their thinking on the issue. Friends this is a very serious, critical and dangerous undertaking. Every Freedom loving American should be very concerned about this. I firmly believe the Islamic threat is the over riding issue in our nation today. I ask you to pay special attention to Mr. Trump’s thinking.

Those in favor of admitting a determined or undetermined number of Refugees from Syria:

HILLARY LIES RECORD
Four dead Americans in Benghazi know how well Hillary “does her part.”

Hillary Clinton (D): “We should do our part.””It should not be just one or two countries, or not just Europe and the United States,” Clinton told MSNBC. “We should do our part, as should the Europeans.”

Martin O’Malley (D): The former Maryland governor released a statement calling for the acceptance of at least 65,000 refugees from Syria before 2017. “We must do more to support Syrian refugees — and we must certainly welcome more than the proposed 5,000 to 8,000 refugees next year.”

MUSLIMS NO LIVES MATTER
Hey Bernie, now do you “understand the dimensions of the problem?”

Bernie Sanders (I): The Vermont senator, who is vying for the Democratic nomination for president, insists that the U.S. must play a role in the global response to the Syrian crisis, but “it’s impossible to give a proper number until we understand the dimensions of the problem,” he told NBC News.

JEB BORDER GREETER
Say Jeb, it seems those “displaced people” might want to displace Us!

Jeb Bush (R): “This is not a game.”-“We have an obligation to…support the displaced people that right now are suffering,” the former Florida governor told CNN. “These tragic pictures (of refugees) are real. This is not a made-up game.”

LINDSEY GRAHAM
Lindsey has worked to tear down the Statue of Liberty for the past 20 years

Lindsey Graham (R): The South Carolina senator made an impassioned plea for the U.S. to “take our fair share” of people fleeing Syria, although he skirted around any concrete figures. “We should take down the Statue of Liberty and tear it down,” he told an audience at the National Press Club. “This is our response as a nation, just tear it down. We don’t mean it anymore.”

Moderate Islam
That’s right, Marco. We’ll just take the Moderates; the ones we can trust

Marco Rubio (R): Open to taking in refugees as long as they’re not “infiltrated.” “I would be open to that if it can be done in a way that allows us to ensure that among them are not infiltrated — people who were, you know, part of a terrorist organization that are using this crisis,” the Florida senator told Boston Herald Radio.

CHRIS CHRISTIE AND OBAMA
A little confused on the meaning of “Allies” aren’t you Chris?

Chris Christie (R): Let’s cooperate with our allies. The New Jersey governor wants everyone to work together. “I would sit down with allies and figure out how we can help,” he told Fox News.

Those who oppose admitting Refugees from Syria:

RAND PAUL
Paul wants to offer no visas to citizens of high-risk countries

Rand Paul (R): “There are some limits.”-The Kentucky senator said that past efforts to welcome refugees have not gone smoothly. “We did this with Iraq, where we won the war, but then we accepted 60,000 Iraqi refugees into our country, some of which wish us harm and tried to attack us he told CNN.

CARLY FIORINA
I don’t trust people who speak of “fair shares.” They can never really define “fair!”

Carly Fiorina (R): We’ve done our “fair share”-The former Hewlett-Packard CEO is less pro-refugee than some of her Republican counterparts. The U.S. has already “done its fair share in terms of humanitarian aid,” she told CBS News.

BOBBY JINDAL
Jindal dropped out but had the right idea about importing terrorists

Bobby Jindal (R): Taking in more refugees would be “ridiculous”-The Louisiana governor staunchly opposes an increase in the number of refugees the U.S. lets in. “No, the answer is not for America to increase the number of refugees we take in. We are already the most compassionate and generous country in the world and it is not even close,” he said in a statement to The Guardian.

TED CRUZ
Common sense from Cruz who perhaps should have suggested Syrian “refugees” fight for their country rather than flee from it

Ted Cruz (R): Taking in refugees “doesn’t make sense.” “In terms of settling the migrants, if the ultimate goal is to return them to their homes, which I believe it should be, it doesn’t make sense from a logistical or a security standpoint to move large numbers of them to far-off countries like the United States,” the Texas senator said in a statement.

Dr Ben Carson
A “security risk?” C’mon, Doc. Huma Abedin is a security risk. These “refugees” are death risks!

Ben Carson (R): Refugees are a security risk. The retired neurosurgeon believes that accepting Syrians would place U.S. security at risk. “Bringing in people from the Middle East right now carries extra danger,” he told ABC.

JOHN KASICH
He won’t “commit to a number,” yet says “America needs to be clear about what we’re all about.” Classic GOPe speak

John Kasich (R): Leave it to the Europeans-The Ohio governor wouldn’t commit to a specific number of refugees to admit. “This is fundamentally a European issue,” he said to CBS News. “America needs to lead in the world and be clear about what we’re all about,” he added.

MUSLIM REFUGEES
Barack’s “refugees” are 85% male, ages 15-35.

Donald Trump (R); Donald Trump recently entered the Syrian refugee debate and had some bold things to say about the crisis.
The Republican presidential front runner spoke with Fox News’ Eric Bolling on Cashin’ In about the issue. During the interview, Trump expressed his deep concern about potentially letting jihadists come into the country as “refugees.”
They were talking about 3,000 people coming,” he told Bolling. “Then I heard 10 [thousand], then I heard 25 [thousand], then I heard 200,000 people.”

“And Eric, if you look at this migration, it’s mostly men,” Trump said. “And they look like young men, and strong men, and they look like MUSLIMSfighters.”

Trump said he wondered “why aren’t they fighting for their own country — Syria?”

He went on to say, “This could be one of the greatest military coups of all time.” Trump obviously wasn’t talking about a domestic military overthrow of the government, but a surprise attack from a REFUGEES 4foreign enemy, as indicated when he said, “Some of [the immigrants] definitely in my opinion will be ISIS.”

Trump warned that accepting refugees in our attempt at humanitarianism could be like accepting “a Trojan horse.” Many migrants, including Islamic militants, would come to an unprepared United States. Obama wants to bring 200,000 people here,” Trump said. “[I]f I win the election, they are going back. They’re going back.”

TRUMP 7
Middle Eastern Nations won’t take them; they won’t fight for their own country. Trump finds this a little suspicious!!

“Under a Trump administration, instead of transferring these migrants to European countries or the U.S., “free zones, safe zones” would be set up in Syria for these people”.

Trump pointed out that the Persian Gulf states aren’t “accepting anybody.”

ANTI-LEADERSHIP INSURGENCY COULD THREATEN MITCH MCCONNELL ALLY MARCO RUBIO

BY JULIA HAHN FOR BREITBART.COM

While Breitbart News has been reporting for months that John Boehner’s speakership was in jeopardy, the Washington media was stunned on Friday with the historic announcement of Boehner’s resignation.

The anti-leadership sentiment seems to be growing as the Washington Times is now reporting that a top Republican party official, Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere, has called for Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) resignation.

The populist, anti-establishment groundswell could spell trouble for the presidential campaign of donor-class darling Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

—who has twice fearlessly ignored voters and risked his political career to advance the goals of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The populist backlash has been developing for quite some time. Earlier this year, Boehner received more votes against him than in any other speaker’s election since 1923. The revolt came shortly after the historic electoral defeat of Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor—the first majority leader to lose his seat in a primary since the position was created in 1899.

Both Boehner and Cantor’s demise were closely tied to a blue-collar voter insurgency connected to trade and immigration—two issues where the Republican leadership has sided with its party’s donors over its base. Cantor, for instance, was largely taken downdue to his support for Marco Rubio’s plan to grant amnesty to illegal minors known as DREAMers.

Now that the Republican base has its sights set on Mitch McConnell, it could pose a serious problem for the campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio, whose two notable accomplishments are closely tied to Mitch McConnell’s agenda—namely co-authoring the Gang of Eight amnesty bill and casting the 60th and deciding vote for Obamatrade.

According to the Washington Post, it was Mitch McConnell who encouraged Rubio to join the Gang of Eight.

The senator from Florida [Rubio] was added to the group after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made clear to Graham and McCain that Rubio’s participation would be critical to winning conservative support… Graham and McCain initially attempted to recruit conservative Sen. Mike Lee, R-UT, but he declined to endorse a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants… [so] McConnell suggested Rubio, who expressed interest.

Indeed, countless reports have confirmed that it was Rubio’s job to launch a “charm offensive” that would sell conservatives on Obama’s immigration agenda.

As The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza reported at the time, “[Sen. Bob] Menendez told me that Rubio’s role was to ‘work over the conservative universe, particularly the conservative opinion-maker universe,’ in order to ‘neutralize them’ and, in some cases, ‘proselytize them.’”

This process was aided and encouraged every step of the way by Mitch McConnell. McConnell created the very circumstances possible for Rubio to take on the role of“salesman” and to make innumerable misrepresentations about his immigration expansion bill—misrepresentations, which to this day, Rubio has never retracted.

Although the Republican base overwhelmingly opposed the policies in Rubio’s amnesty bill, Mitch McConnell refused to block the bill from coming up to a vote—a stark contrast from Sen. Harry Reid,  who has blocked numerous bills that were Republican priorities, but were opposed by the Democrat voter base.

Although McConnell eventually cast his vote against the Gang of Eight bill, he did so only once it was clear that the bill would easily pass the Senate and after he had done everything that was necessary to ensure its smooth passage.

One of Republican voters’ many frustrations with its leadership is not only that GOP leadership fails to advance conservative priorities, but that they often times engage in elaborately staged Kabuki theatre to ensure that Republican donors’ agenda is enacted—even if it comes at the expense of the economic and physical security of everyday voters.

As Georgetown University professor Eric Gould has documented:

The overall evidence suggests that the manufacturing and immigration trends have hollowed-out the overall demand for middle-skilled workers in all sectors, while increasing the supply of workers in lower skilled jobs. Both phenomena are producing downward pressure on the relative wages of workers at the low end of the income distribution.

Indeed, as Breitbart News has exclusively reported, not one Republican leader in the House or Senate is willing to reduce immigration levels. Moreover, a Senate leadership internal messaging document exposed by Breitbart News failed to make any mention of immigration whatsoever. The leadership’s messaging memo instead encouraged Republican Senators to meet with business groups to tout the GOP’s support for Obama’s unpopular globalist trade pacts.

Obamatrade is one of Rubio’s signature accomplishments. Despite casting the 60th critical vote for the passage of the wage-depressing bill, Rubio has yet to provide any evidence that he read the bill prior to authoring an op-ed in support of it, delivering speeches in favor of it, and passing multiple votes to advance it.

While Democrat donors and leaders fight hard to pursue the priorities of their progressive base (such as mass immigration, expanding welfare, etc.), Republican donors and leaders frequently work against the interests of the Republican base.

Some worry that Republican leadership and the donor class seem to be actively working to minimize the social and economic power of the people voting for them—both by refusing to advance legislation supported by the base (such as legislation to stop sanctuary cities) and by pushing through legislation opposed by the base (such as the Rubio-Schumer bill and Obamatrade).

Perhaps the crux of the voters’ frustration with Republican leadership is the palpable anxiety amongst Republican voters that, with each passing year, their ability to control their own affairs, protect their communities, maintain their schools, and provide for their children, is eroding as the people donating to the Republican party grow wealthier and more powerful and promote their globalist agenda.

Only days before Boehner’s resignation announcement, Rubio seemed to defend John Boehner and Mitch McConnell—arguing that Republican voters were expecting too much when they sent their elected officials to Washington to represent them.

“Expectations were raised unnecessarily high,” Rubio said in an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier.

Rubio told Baier, “The idea that you would win the Senate, control the agenda never was true,” he said. “You need a president. It’s one of the main reasons why I decided to run for president.”

Indeed, even though Rubio was able to pass Republican leadership’s immigration agenda through the Senate, the bill went down in flames as a result of mass public opposition. From the Oval Office, Rubio would have a much greater vantage point to enact Mitch McConnell’s agenda and increase the admission of foreign workers, which Republican donors desperately want to lower wages and reduce their cost of labor.

Given the strong desire of Republican voters to remove Mitch McConnell, it remains to be seen whether the voters will be willing to give over control of the Republican party to the young presidential hopeful who has been one of the most ever faithful champions of the McConnell-Boehner agenda.
