Marco Rubio goes after Trump’s
pick for secretary of state. Hard.

Washington Post, by Amber Phillips

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 1/12/2017 3:02:31 AM

Going into Wednesday´s hearing for President-elect Donald Trump´s secretary of state nominee, Rex Tillerson, all eyes were on Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who could choose whether to give deference to Trump´s pick — or try to tear him apart. In the opening hour of the two-day hearing, Rubio went on the attack. [Notably, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) let him go on that attack before many other senators had a chance to speak, and before Trump´s news conference was going to suck up all the political oxygen.] No matter when it happened, Rubio´s bull-dog approach could spell

Rubio thinks that yelling louder at Russia will make them friendlier or more obedient or something. And yelling and finger pointing projects strength. The whole Bush-Neocon thing, barf. He made a complete fool of himself today. Lost my respect.

The thing to remember about some of these twerps like Rubio is they´re typically passive-aggressive. They´re too cowardly to take on their opponents directly, but they silently carry their grudge and find the time and circumstances when they can damage that opponent by attacking someone or something of value to them. This is despicable and Rubio is pretty much writing off any chance for his future options as a leader. The voters will remember.

Birds of a feather.

Rubio appears to be a student of the McCain/Graham school of political backstabbing. He could have carved out a position of power and renewed his reputation but regretfully decided to revert to his primary adversarial self. He can´t quite seem to decide which persona to embrace. Pity. He has great political potential but zero discernment.

I did not vote for this little anchor baby pos who is trying hard to be relevant for a future run at POTUS altho he´s not eligible for any office above senator. He´s a dishonest fraud.

Sadly, I did vote for Rubio, twice. I will be calling his office today to express my outrage at the way he treated Mr. Tillerson. It made Rubio look small and nasty. Tillerson is extremely qualified, that much was clear yesterday at his hearing. Rubio should remember that FLORIDA voted for Trump and those voters will have no problem voting Rubio out next time around if he should join the Bobsey Twins and vote against Tillerson! That includes me!

Listened to the entire hearing on C-Span Radio. Rubio was second in order. My jaw dropped at the incompetent aggressiveness of his questions. I was also struck by how many Senators, including Rubio, asked the nominee what his reaction is to various newspaper articles. Given the media´s record, I found that laughable.

I too voted for Rubio twice... for Florida, but not for President. I voted for Trump for President. And I do think that Tillerson is a horrible choice for Sec of State. Bolton was the Ace pick for the job, hands down. But GWBush and Bob Corker and Gates and the elite establishment are behind the push for this guy to be SoS.

Tillerson wants Planned parenthood funded by tax payers. He was ´all in´ for Gay Scout Masters for the Boy Scouts. And he is on the same page as Algore inre to Global Warming. He agrees with the Paris Accords and would like to see a global carbon tax enacted. I suppose that if you have liberal tendencies you´ll be waving the pom-poms for this guy.

But I think Rubio is going a bit too far. I cannot understand what is motivating this much vitriol from him. With all these attacks by the left from the sewers, we need to back Trump now.

You could see how Rubio intended to do his best to insult and hurt Tillerson chances at Sec. of State.
Rubio only showed his Amateurish approach to get back at Trump. No matter what the cost to our Country. Shame on Him.

Did Trump peg this guy accurately? He´s "Little Marco." And JEB is so "low energy" he can´t make it to the inauguration.

Marco can write off his career. He is not qualified for the job he holds, and should be let go.

How sad for him. Little Marco has joined with the likes of McCain and Graham. Whatever hopes he may have had for higher office died yesterday.

#8 Lou Dobbs described them to the teeth last night: Head Clown Schumer and the Three Amigos - McPain, Miss Lindsey and Little Marco. We know how McCain and Graham will act. Rubio is trying to have his moment in the sun and climb the ladder again, but this time, we all know who he really is. He is toast.

I moved from Florida just before election day so I didn´t HAVE to vote for Little Marco again, thankfully. If I was there, I would have been wearing a clothespin on my nose to the voting booth. I so hoped John Bolton would have had a spot in the new administration. Nikki Haley??

It´s Rubio´s revenge for Trump referring to him as "Little Marco" and knocking him out of the box during the presidential campaign. It has to be personal, as he could not do that politically, as the State of Florida voted for Trump, and by extension now opposing Tillerson, Rubio is going against the wishes of the majority of Florida voters.

A member of the hacktivist network Anonymous has debunked the assertion that US intelligence report on Russia’s alleged hacking of the DNC proves a particular party’s guilt, explaining that such claims show a lack of understanding of how hackers operate. “The ODNI [Office of the Director of National Intelligence] report wants you to believe that Russian hackers hacked the DNC [Democratic National Committee] based on the evidence that the attacks looked identical to methods used by the same Russian hacking team.

Thursday´s New York Times has a report on how the highly suspicious dossier alleging that Donald Trump was compromised by Russian intelligence agents came into existence. Among the other interesting revelations was that the dubious opposition research report was put together by the research firm Fusion GPS: The story began in September 2015, when a wealthy Republican donor who strongly opposed Mr. Trump put up the money to hire a Washington research firm run by former journalists, Fusion GPS, to compile a dossier about the real estate magnate´s past scandals and weaknesses, according to a person familiar with the effort.

From the moment Donald Trump picked Senator Jeff Sessions to be the next attorney general, it was clear what Democrats would need to defeat the Sessions nomination: a surprise witness. It was such a witness whose testimony led to the Senate´s rejection of Sessions for a federal judgeship in 1986. Back then, a reluctant Justice Department lawyer, Gerald Hebert, was drawn into testifying against Sessions by the staff of then-Judiciary committee chairman Joe Biden. At a confirmation hearing, he said Sessions had made racially tainted remarks when they worked together on civil rights cases in Alabama in the early 1980s. Hebert´s testimony

US senators have passed the first measure on the way to dismantling outgoing-President Barack Obama’s much debated health care law, commonly known as Obamacare. Early on Thursday, the Senate voted 51-48 in favor of a nonbinding Republican-backed budget measure that will make it easier to pass repeal legislation, which could be voted on as early as next month. epublicans plan to get rid of the law and replace parts of it by the end of February, according to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, speaking on “The Hugh Hewitt Show”, a conservative radio program, on Wednesday.

How Venezuela’s corrupt socialists

Venezuela is no longer a country with a government, institutions and a civil society. It’s a geographic area terrorized by a criminal enterprise that pretends to govern, with a civil society made up of two sets of people: accomplices and victims. More than 30 million of the latter. The Hugo Chavez-led looting spree began in 2000. By “looting,” I mean fraudulent government contracts, a celebration of bribery, phantom payrolls across all government ministries, bogus government-grant programs, the sacking of Venezuela’s gold reserves and a massive currency-exchange scam. More than $1 trillion has disappeared — some of it wasted on social programs that produced

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

While we learned earlier that John McCain was responsible for handing over the 35-page "dossier" of compromising, if arguably fake, revelations about Trump´s connections to Russia over to the FBI, the identity of the actual creator, who was said to be an ex-British intelligence service, remained a mystery. No longer. Courtesy of the WSJ, we now know his name: the former MI-6 officer, now working for a private security-and-investigations firm "who produced the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia" is Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence.... and before readers google

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in

CNN´s exclusive reporting on the Russian matter was separate and distinctly different from the document dump executed by an online news property," Smith said during his closing monologue.
