Subject: Marco Rubio: Corrupted by Washington in Only Two Years

Marco Rubio: Corrupted by Washington in Only Two Years

It’s hard to believe that Marco Rubio has only been in the Senate since January 2011. With the way he has been going on lately, telling conservatives what a bunch of unenlightened rubes we are for objecting to his immigration reform, you would think he’d been a Senator for 20 years.
The once Tea Party favorite, whose chances of being elected President are now on par with Mark Sanford, has been at the forefront of jamming the Democrat’s dream of opening the immigration floodgates through Congress, an effort that shares many the hallmarks of the passage of Obamacare:
  • Put together in the dead of night by Washington insiders with zero transparency. Check.
  • Rushing the bill through the legislative process as fast as humanly possible before the opposition can get their act together. Check.
  • Refusing to accept even the barest hint of cooperation with Republicans who aren’t RINOs. Check.
  • We’ll have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it! Check.

Representing everything the Tea Party movement has dedicated itself against Rubio is blazing a trail of lies and deceit that must make Obama proud.
Despite Rubio’s assurances that legalization efforts won’t go into effect until after the border is secure, a multitude of analysts have shown this to be a complete falsehood. Once DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano says the border is secure, whether it is or not, the bill goes into effect. Trusting someone who is stocking up on hundreds of millions of rounds of ammo, more than enough to conquer all of Asia Minor, isn’t exactly what most conservatives would call a good bet.
Other fun facts that Rubio has neglected to mention during his magical media tour include:
  • The immediate shutdown of the E-verify system.
  • The potential for 33 million newly minted American citizens in only the first 10 years—a “conservative” estimate, the actual total could be much higher.
  • permanent voting majority for Democrats guaranteed to last a generation.
  • Making it illegal for law enforcement to arrest and deport anyone who “appears eligible” for legalization.
  • Allowing judges the ability to waive what is now mandatory deportation for certainclasses of criminal aliens.
  • Free “Obama phones” for immigrants as they cross the border.
  • A gigantic boon for immigration lawyers as countless appeals, court appearances and so on are granted to illegals before they can be deported.
  • And that’s just what we know so far. With the endless ability for the DHS Secretary togrant exceptions to not only individuals, but entire “classes of aliens” from conforming to the law, things could get much worse.
The question conservatives are asking themselves lately is why would Rubio serve as a patsy for this clearly dangerous legislation? The answer is he is corrupt. Corrupted by a Washington culture where the elites think they are smarter than us, that they have the power to tell us what to do and who we have to accept into our communities, regardless of the cost to our society and pocketbooks. Where attending Georgetown cocktail parties attended by only the very best sort makes them better than the common people they lord over. A symptom of a government that is no longer of the people, by the people, for the people, but now only for the elite.
From Tea Party favorite to corrupt Washington insider in only two years, ladies and gentlemen, I give you Marco Rubio.

Rubio Rubs Republicans Raw: Chaffing Facts About Gang of 8 Reform - ACORN No Longer Needed

The following are selected details and commentary about the immigration bill Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has written in tandem with the Gang of Eight headed by Senate Scoundrel, Chuck Schumer (D-NY). As Rich Lowery says in an article in Politico today, Rubio was a huge "get." He was a Republican darling, thought to be conservative. He is of Cuban ancestory with an interesting backstory, handsome, with a pretty family and can out-orate Obama without a teleprompter. Does it get any better than that for a Merry Band of Senate Progressives? Who needs ACORN to organize Democrat voters when you have Senators Marco Rubio, John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ)?  If  you merged the photos of the Gang of Eight, you'd get this:
No border security before legal status (completely contrary to what Rubio promised - because, he says, we need "to freeze in place" the 11 million already here - no time to wait for border security - call this 'had' by Chuck Schumer):
Under the bill, no additional enforcement has to take place before undocumented immigrants get legalized. The secretary of the Department of Homeland Security merely has to come up with a strategy for enforcement and notify Congress that it has commenced. It doesn’t matter if it is a good, bad or indifferent plan, so long as it is a plan. Then, an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants get legal status...
Schumer’s genius is to have placated Rubio not just with promises, but with new versions of old promises. Rubio touts the bill’s mandate for the creation of an exit-entry tracking system, a key piece of the puzzle of controlling who comes here. Congress first mandated the creation of such a system in 1996. Rich Lowry writing for Politico
Five years, only, until the bill passes and "legal status," not citizenship, allows a pathway to the voter booth for an  estimated 2 million to 3 million of the 11 million illegals, so considering history, those numbers will be much larger.
The Schumer-Rubio bill, however, creates an expedited citizenship process for millions of illegal immigrants. These immigrants are eligible for citizenship in just 5 years...
The Schumer-Rubio bill incorporates provisions of the proposed DREAM Act. The provisions apply to individuals who, as children, were brought into the country illegally by their parents. An individual brought into the US when they were 16 or younger and has completed high school and two years towards a bachelor degree or served 4 years in the military can change their status and apply for permanent legal residency (green card) after just 5 years. Other illegal immigrants have to wait 10 years.
Under the legislation, however, DREAM immigrants can immediately apply for citizenship once the have permanent legal status. Currently, immigrants with green cards have to wait 5 years to apply for citizenship. The Schumer-Rubio legislation, however, counts the time the immigrant held an RPI visa and allows an immediate petition for citizenship. Other immigrants, once they have their green card, would have to wait three years before they could apply to become citizens.
According to a Senate office involved in the deliberations, 2-3 million immigrants would be eligible for the expedited citizenship path. In addition, these immigrants could also immediately apply for their spouses or children to be put on a path to citizenship, adding hundreds of thousands more citizens.
Of course, as citizens, these millions of new citizens are eligible to vote. Republicans may ease their minds thinking they have 13 years to broaden their outreach to Hispanics. The political implications, however, begin in just 5 years. Source: Mike Flynn for Breitbart
The following are snippets of a conversation between Rush Limbaugh and Rubio yesterday (thanks to David Lemon, Master of Bronze).   Read more HERE:

The Gang of Eight’s 844-page immigration reform legislation makes it easier for asylum seekers to come to America. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, the Boston Marathon bomber suspect, who was apprehended last Friday, after he was found wounded in a boat in Watertown, Boston, after the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three people and injured nearly 200 others, came to America legally by claiming asylum with his father.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is doubling down on immigration reform. What a disappointment he’s turned out to be. He’s taking a page right out of the progressive Democrats’ playbook. He wasted no time in getting his talking points together to exploit the Boston Marathon  bombing, and now he’s attacking conservatives, the very people who helped to put him in office.
I am deeply, deeply disturbed by the games being played by pro-immigration advocates on the right, including staff in Senator Marco Rubio’s office, Grover Norquist, a....
They are attacking other conservatives who disagree with them as racists, slavery supporters, bigots, haters, baby killers, un-Christian, etc. They are waging a coordinated attack between Senator Rubio’s office and others against conservative stalwarts like the Heritage Foundation and Jim DeMint.
They are proposing a plan that thus far appears to be unworkable, is wholly too complicated, and is a distraction from issues that we could all agree on in the name of getting a plan acceptable to Democrats. In the process, their attacks on conservatives designed to intimidate, browbeat, and silence them opens old wounds and does exactly what the Democrats hoped to do — divide the right and play directly to the fears of Hispanic voters who have for so long seen political leaders of both parties demagogue the issue.
Many of the people who want an immigration solution frankly could care less about Hispanic voters. They see this as an issue the GOP has to get right on and they will do whatever it takes to get right on the issue. They are playing political games. Seeing self-styled conservatives and libertarians trying to pass any legislation that is labeled “comprehensive” should always be a red flag.
I have seen friends paint others as racists, as sympathizers to abortion advocates, and as haters all to try to steam roll through their preferred policy solution. I have seen good conservative organizations attacked and lumped in with fringe groups. I have seen mainstream groups characterized as fringe. I have seen people whore their faith in the name of immigration reform. (Read More)
As Javier Majarres pointed out, nothing comes out of Rubio’s camp without his permission.
Nothing, I mean nothing, comes out of Rubio’s office  without Rubio himself signing off on it. Burgos and his PAC team run cover for Rubio at every turn. You see, Rubio is only a ‘cash cow’ to them, nothing more. Just ask his grossly overpaid PAC ‘consultants.’  (Read More)
I keep wondering when Rubio’s going to do like Charlie Crist and come out as a Democrat. But then again, he can just go the route of Lindsey Graham and John McCain, which isn’t much better.
