Rubio votes with Democrats to kill
border security before legalization

Washington Examiner, by Conn Carroll

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/13/2013 12:09:26 PM

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., voted with Senate Democrats today to kill an amendment by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, that would have required the federal government to secure the border first before granting legalization to currently illegal immigrants. All four Republican members of the bipartisan Gang of Eight immigration group voted for Majority Leader Harry Reid’s, D-Nev., motion to table the Grassley amendment. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., who said she would vote for the underlying bill this Sunday, voted with her Republican

Comments:
All the spin and misrepresentations he has made on various shows on Fox can´t hide his duplicity on immigration. Bye bye Rubio. You´re toast. I´m sick of liars like him in the Republican party.

Rubio already switched parties, he just hasn´t made it official. You don´t make deals in back rooms with Chuck Schumer and claim you are a Republican, Rubio played the Tea Party.

I´m going to assume anyone who doesn´t speak English well is an amnesty usurper and treat them accordingly. This is what their legislation will cause. Prejudice is good when it is used defensively. Rubio is a tool.

Consider that Rubio, scam artist that he is, knows the country is becoming more Hispanic/Democrat every day.
He used Conservatives like me to allow him to gain office and then switch parties to run on the new the ´Hispanic Party´

I emailed my Senator and asked him to vote "No" on Amnesty, I don´t care if they don´t call it that, the truth is the truth. Anyhow, I also added that I did not expect him to do the right thing for the voters in my state or the citizens of this country, I was only contacting him to express my opinion and my concern for my country.

Our congresscritters in our Representative Republic no longer represent us.

I went to the very first Tea Party event in a small town with a population of about 3,000. That many people showed up.
Not familiar with the TP guys, I went because my 80 year old mother asked me to take her.
The crowd was a solid mix of political parties, colors, and socio-economic citizens. When a Republican politician got up to speak, the crowd was polite, but almost unanimously ask her not to speak because that wasn´t why we were there; this was a venue for the public to voice their opinion. She got a look of fear on her face as crowd rejected her, that´s when I knew I was in the right place.

Mr. Rubio, you have no longer have a place with us!

Rubes is not fit to sleep in our dog house. Our dog, Spot, has more moral character than he. On Hannity´s show yesterday and once again, he spilled his lies, spoke rapidly, and did not say a word. Rush said today he is at a loss to understand these fools in DC. Rubes just lies outright to the hosts and even though they call him on it, he still manages a return appearance.

Rubio says we need to count the illegals who are here now by forcing them to get work permits [legalization?] and e-verify and then no new border crossers will be able to get jobs here. Very stiff penalties on employers who hire anyone without a work permit or e-verify number. It will take some time to finish the border fence and we need the work permit program in place first.

White House Releases New Obama
Phone Photo in Ukraine Crisis

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS. Weiss Russell (he has changed his name from “Weiss Rasool,” the name under which he was convicted), is currently employed as a financial management analyst in the IRS Deputy Chief Financial Officer’s

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

The IRS still has not responded to allegations from a former Center for American Progress (CAP) employee that the left-wing think tank coordinates on editorial content with the White House — revelations that could threaten the organization’s nonprofit status. Former ThinkProgress reporter Zaid Jilani wrote a piece this week detailing his experiences working for the liberal blog, which is run by CAP’s 501(c)(4) nonprofit Action Fund, the advocacy arm of White House counselor John Podesta’s think tank. “When I started working at ThinkProgress at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in 2009, I did so because it was an

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

Cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal´s champion, Debo Adegbile, President Obama´s defeated pick to be assistant attorney general for the civil rights division at the Department of Justice, is not the only radical on President Obama´s wish list.

Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facetiously recalled “Presidents” Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney to make a point about how Republicans need to “stand for principle” in order to win big elections. Today, Sen. McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

The White House said the US president told his Russian counterpart that Russia’s actions were a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. During the hour-long phone call, President Obama urged Russian forces to return to their bases.
