Marco Rubio is Showing Us the Kind of Man He Really Is
It is now two days after the Republican Presidential Caucus in Iowa, in which Ted Cruz was the decisive winner and Donald Trump placed second with Marco Rubio placed third. According to Fox News, however, Marco Rubio was the winner somehow, because they seemingly have adopted being Marco Rubio’s campaign headquarters. The election night coverage was heavily slanted toward Marco Rubio and praising him, and the coverage has not changed since. As with Marco Rubio, Fox News has now focused their campaign sharply on bashing Ted Cruz, and not on the issues, either, just like Rubio. Those of us who follow politics know that during the Senate’s Gang of 8 battle, Ted Cruz was firmly on the side of not passing Barack Obama’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform, which was an amnesty bill that made illegal immigration permanently a pathway to citizenship for the future. Marco Rubio, however, was one of the authors of the bill, was a firm supporter, and had completely gone in a direction 180 degrees the opposite of the position he ran on to become a U.S. Senator. As a resident of Florida, the betrayal that Marco Rubi laid on us was unforgiveable, and it was something that I planned to remember, hawing that he was eyeing the White House ever since he started his first day in the Senate. Simply put, Marco Rubio was and still is Mr. Amnesty, and voted right along with 100% of the Democrat Party. Every single Democrat voted for the bill, and half of the Gang of 8 were RINOs who were supporting the interests of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who wanted cheap labor.
I remember the amendment that Ted Cruz proposed, and it was clear at the time that he put in an amendment to poison the bill and make obvious what the intentions were behind the bill. The amendment called for all the legalized immigrants to never receive citizenship and never receive the right to vote. The amendment failed, showing that the proponents, like Marco Rubio were not interested in legalizing people and rescuing them from “the shadows.” It was all about getting voters for the Democrats and it was all about getting cheap labor for the Republicans. They still held firm even though the immigrants would still be able to work, because they knew that their Democrat allies wanted citizen voters. Now that he is running for President, as expected, Marco Rubio is seemingly arguing that Ted Cruz was just as pro-amnesty as him. Not only is this a lie, it seems like a crappy argument since he’s really seeing, “Hey, Ted Cruz is just as bad as me, so you might as well vote for me!”
Fox News has been praising Marco Rubio since his third place finish as if he did so much better than expected. He actually placed just where the polls predicted him to place. He may have been a little closer to second place, but that’s no big deal. Fox News even lied in their reporting, saying that Marco Rubio had done so well spending very little time there and spending so little money. In reality, Marco Rubio spent $11 million on the Iowa campaign. Ted Cruz spent $7 million, and Donald Trump spent $3 million. Marco Rubio spent more than Ted Cruz and Donald Trump combined! I heard the report on the Mark Levin Show on Tuesday, February 2nd. In this episode, Mark does site the original source. I am not taking the time to listen through and find it right now.
Ben Carson – The Devout Christian Who is a Deceitful Liar
Here’s the link.
The biggest controversy right now is how the Ted Cruz campaign supposedly engaged in an evil move to deceive Ben Caron’s voters. this is simply not true. In fact, most of the reports about this issue do not include the actual audio or video from the initial CNN report that implied that Ben Carson was suspending his campaign, and nor do they show the quote form the actual tweet from the Cruz campaign staffer who never said that Ben Carson was dropping out. Here is the initial CNN report. It is amazing how the people at Fox News don’t seem to be able to find it on YouTube, like the rest of us can.
So, e member of Ted Cruz’s campaign staff tweeted out that Ben Carson was leaving the trail for a week and wasn’t going to do New Hampshire. At no time did the tweet mention that Carson was suspending his campaign. The Cruz campaign did not lie to anyone, but just pointed out that it looked weird that Carson was leaving the trail for a week, when the next primary was on the following week and this week was the last one to campaign. Who supplied the news about Carson returning home to CNN? It was Ben Carson’s campaign that told them. Instead of being mad at CNN, Ben Carson is mad at Ted Cruz and is bashing him, saying that Cruz was lying to Carson supporters to get their votes. Fox News is more than happy to carry this story and has been supposedly spending all day on it. Apparently Ben Carson didn’t need too much rest and relaxation from the trail, because he has been campaigning on Fox News by bashing Ted Cruz. At this pint, Carson knows that his numbers are too low in all the upcoming states for him to make a surge. He is just playing the roll of spoiler for the chances of another Conservative. Ben Carson obviously knows that the source of the story was CNN and that Cruz’s campaign did not lie, but passed the news along with he same question mark at the end as the CNN report. In other words, Ben Carson is practicing deception and Ben Carson is lying by omission. How Christian of him.
Marco Rubio’s campaign also passed along the same news as Cruz’s campaign to staffers. Yet, we’re not hearing any complaints or even a mention of it from Fox News, because Rubio’s their horse in the race for the RINO Establishment. Ben Carson’s result came to exactly where the polls had him. There wasn’t any sudden shift of thousands of votes to Cruz from the Carson campaign. Cruz ended up with over 50,000 and Carson ended up with less than a third of that.
Enter the Soar Loser, Donald Trump
No Republican Presidential Primary Campaign news can exist without the reality TV star, Donald Trump’s face and tweets in it. Donald Trump has been going on just about every form of media that exists bashing Ted Cruz, saying that it was a fraudulent election and that the election should be held again. He also is kissing Ben Carson’s butt with kind remarks. What’s funny is that Ben Carson was doing well in Iowa back in November, 2015, until the same Donald Trump started personal attacks on Carson. Carson’s campaign never recovered from these attacks. Since then, Carson has been polling in fourth instead of first or second. Carson ended up placing fourth with the same percentage of support that he was getting in the polls. There was no fraud and there were no bogus results based on a tweet. As usual, Donald Trump is lying his ass off and threatening to sue. Go ahead Donald, sue. Let’s see how far your lawsuit goes. Donald Trump won’t sue, because he knows it would get thrown out and he doesn’t want to embarrass himself anymore than he already does.
Sarah Palin – Donald Trump’s New Attack Dog
Many of us Conservatives got a bad taste in our mouths when Sarah Palin rushed to support Donald Trump while he was praising chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid as great people that he had great relationships with and would be able to make deals with. In fact, while Sarah Palin had always been a proponent of removing taxpayer subsidies for big ethanol, she aligned with Trump and changed her stance on that issue right before the Iowa primaries. Since then, she has been putting off a hell of a lot of Conservatives with her Ted Cruz bashing. She’s been entering into personal attacks reminiscent of the left wing media’s personal attacks on her throughout the years. In this latest Trump bashing move, she has been calling Ted Cruz every name in the book and accusing him of deception and lying. Sarah, perhaps you should take a look at the reality TV star that you are supporting and fighting for. Maybe you should also acquaint yourself with the facts.
Not all Conservatives are Ted Cruz supporters, but just about all Conservatives have a great respect for him. We also have long memories. Sarah Palin is going to have a really hard time recovering her former Conservative credibility from this. It’s not only just the decision to support Donald Trump, which could eventually be put down to going with the flow or being deceived by his charisma, but now, she’s attacking with her claws out just like a leftist. She’s also going very personal too and is not sticking to the issues. I remember liking her for agreeing with her positions, but always had to cringe a bit when she spoke, because she never came across as been well-informed or well-spoken. So, for me, it is not a big loss to lose her as a Conservative voice. Yet, I would like to remind Sarah that now that she’s Donald Trump’s attack dog that there is a term for female dogs. She’s now Donald Trump’s _____.
In this Republican Presidential Primary season, we are really getting to know some people better.
