Malkin: Marco Rubio Desperately Trying to Sell Immigration Reform (POLL)

Senator Marco Rubio/ The Shark Tank

Senator Marco Rubio/ The Shark Tank


U.S. Senator Marco Rubio continues to get pummeled by pro-legal immigration supporters after he co-sponsored the ‘Gang of Ocho’ amnesty bill that passed in the Senate. Rubio, who campaigned in 2010 as a being against any form of amnesty for illegal aliens, decided to compromise on immigration reform with the likes of Democrats Durbin, Schumer and McCain, fueling unprecedented blowback by his ‘former’ supporters.

Many within conservative circles, including donors and hard-line Rubio supporters,  believe that he has fallen from grace, and has committed political suicide by flip-flopping on one of his campaign promises.

Fox News contributor and author, Michelle Malkin, slammed Rubio  of being “desperate” and  using the “worse kind of political expedience.”

He’s dug himself into a hole and he can’t get himself out so he has resorted to rather desperate, silly, and may I add, craven rationales for sticking to his disaster

Take the poll below! Here is Mofo’s video of Malkin’s Rubio rant:

    Rubio has turned out to be a great disappointment. Many had high hopes for him, myself included. He will not get re-elected to the Senate, much, much less the Presidency EVER! You, Mr. Rubio are a loser.

    • Jean August 16, 2013 at 6:04 pm

      Totally agree he would never get any kind of vote out of me.It is sad espeacialy on this after what his parents went through to give him the life he has now FREEDOM but I guess hes free to be a rino too.I’ll pray for him but only GOD can turn hearts and minds to do right.

    • Sherryl August 17, 2013 at 8:08 am

      I still have faith in Rubio, and I think his message has been distorted….purposely. He said all along that this wouldn’t end up being the final bill, but it would be a start. I would rather have Marco in the mix working on something, than have all dems doing it and once again saying that the Republicans aren’t “engaged”. From what I remember, he didn’t support the final bill (as keeps being reported), but because of the flaws, actually voted against it in the Senate when it came up fr a vote. Can someone show me otherwise…that he actually voted “yes” on the bill he knew wasn’t the best one? Someone is out to keep Rubio from gaining strength, probably because they know he could end up as President one day. And you all are blindly falling for it!

      • MikeR August 17, 2013 at 2:17 pm

        Sherryl, I don’t think you understand how a bill becomes a law. The Senate immigration bill stinks, and it will be Republican suicide if it eventually becomes law. Rubio was just as guilty as the seven leftists in the final result. The only way to avoid a disaster that will plague conservatives for decades is for the House not to pass any immigration bill. That is the only way to avoid the House bill from going to conference and reconciliation with the Senate bill. Rubio will never be President.

        • Sherryl August 17, 2013 at 7:09 pm

          I do understand how a bill becomes law…it takes the House and the Senate. I think Rubio knew that the House would never go for this first attempt. How a bill becomes law?? Well, look at all the great bills from the House that will never see the light of day because Reid will never take them off his desk and allow any discussion or debate on them, let alone a vote!

          • MikeR August 18, 2013 at 8:13 am

            I still think you are missing the point. It is best, under the present circumstances, with a Democrat Senate and a Democrat President, if there is no immigration bill. The status quo, as bad as it is, is more conducive to freedom and national sovereignty than an immigration bill that will give us eleven million to thirty million new socialist voters. Immigration must be fixed, but it doesn’t have to be fixed this year. We should patiently wait until we have a Republican majority in both the House and Senate. What if that never happens? Then at least we will have tried.

          • Paul August 20, 2013 at 11:08 am

            I am with Sherryl on this one. Until I see proof of what Rubio has done (or not done) I will not accept that he is a traitor. All medias has a tendency of distorting the facts for the sake of headlines and getting the readers attention. Example: Obummer talks about American jobs but his tour bus was built in Canada. It turned out it was only the chassis of his bus that was made in Canada.

            I do suspect Rubio may be playing a little game with the Dems just like they’ve done to the Republicans. I suspect Rubio is asking to secure our borders first and after that we’ll discuss amnesty for the illegal aliens. Once the borders are secured, it will take a lifetime to approve the illegals. Remember when the Dems agreed to an increase in our debt ceiling with the promise of cutting spending afterwards? We are still waiting for the cuts and all we see is tax increases. We’ll see, I guess.

      • Char Kay August 19, 2013 at 11:11 am

        Rubio lied to Floridians when he said he was against amnesty and for border security to be elected senator. He has done nothing to secure the border and is for total amnesty. The bill the gang of 8 (all of which should be in prison as they advocate breaking our laws and giving away America) has so many loopholes that the border will NEVER be secured and illegals will be given citizenship and welfare (your social security money, food stamps, medicare, Medicaid, housing, etc.). Read the bill as it will destroy American way of life and we will become a third world country of uneducated TAKERS.

    • lowie August 17, 2013 at 9:23 am

      If he is the only Republican on the ticket, I will vote for him. I will NEVER vote for a Democrat. Rubio made a huge mistake, but I feel he is better than any liberal. His mistake was to form an alliance with John McCain.

      • MikeR August 17, 2013 at 2:27 pm

        Rubio didn’t make a “mistake”. A mistake is getting off at the wrong highway exit, or running out of gas. If you listen to enough of Rubio’s pre-election interviews, you will see that he was squishy on immigration before he was elected. The two biggest issues congress has to deal with this year are immigration and obamacare. Voting the wrong way on either should be considered traitorous.

        • Sherryl August 17, 2013 at 7:20 pm

          I heard Rubio speak in person a couple of times while he was running for the Senate. Questions always came up about immigration and I can tell you personally…Rubio was never squishy, never tried to be “diplomatic”. He answered immediately….he has always said that out and out amnesty is not the way to go…sends the wrong messagem though something needs to be done about the millions here; but they need to wait their turn like so many legal immigrants have been doing for years…go to the back of the line. His ideas have not changed. Listen to him, not the pundits and drive-by media. I don’t agree with everything, but tell me…who do you think would do a better job and be able to get Congress to do the right thing? Remember, Rubio is a freshman…the “old guard” on both sides of the aisle just won’t take the freshmen seriously….another reason we need term limits!

          • MikeR August 18, 2013 at 8:16 am

            I agree about term limits. I will do everything I can to limit Rubio to only one term.

          • American Statesman August 19, 2013 at 7:34 am


            You are missing the point and you are drinking GOP Rubio Amnesty kool-aid.
            1) Rubio has ALWAYS BEEN PRO-AMNESTY, BUT HAD TO LIE ABOUT IT TO GET ELECTED. I knew Candidate Rubio was a LIAR and I did not vote for him.
            2) Rubio delivers a different message in Spanish to the Hispanic community – don’t worry about the border – AMNESTY IS THE GOAL. Fact….AMERICANS do not matter to Rubio.
            3) Rubio was elected to represent AMERICANS….NOT NON-AMERICANS. Rubio demonstrates everyday that he cares more about illegal NON-AMERICANS than America and Americans.
            4) I have been calling Rubio’s offices asking about a townhall meeting with his constituents – they do not know – COWARD RUBIO WILL NOT FACE HIS CONSTITUENTS IN A TOWNHALL MEETING. I challenged Rubio to have a townhall meeting, present the documentary from Dennis Michael Lynch – “They Come to America II – The Cost of Amnesty” and the only response I get is “Have a nice evening”. This proves Rubio is a FRAUD, BACK- STABBING HYPOCRIT, ANTI-AMERICAN, ETC ETC ETC.
            5) Rubio is an ANCHOR BABY….Rubio is not a “Natural Born” American and is NOT eligible for POTUS. NEITHER OF HIS PARENTS WERE AMERICANS WHEN HE WAS BORN. They were both CUBANS…NOT AMERICANS. Thus, if you believe in our Constitution, Rubio is NOT eligible for POTUS.
            6) If Rubio is the best the GOP and America can do, America and Americans are in big trouble. AND IT WILL BE THE END OF THE GOP!
            7) Rubio will be fired in 2016. AMERICANS need to find a Constitutionalist to replace Rubio in 2016.
            8) If Rubio (and other members of Congress) had any ethics, honor, patriotism and loyalty to America and our Constitution, they would honor their oath of office and abide by our Constitution. They would be actively seeking the impeachment of BO for ignoring laws and abusing his authority. King BO needs to be impeached.

            FIRE RUBIO IN 2016.


      • Helena Starke August 20, 2013 at 11:37 am

        That’s where you are wrong. If you keep voting for the RINO we will never get a true republican for a candidate,we need to send them a message that we don’t want someone who doesn’t share our values or beliefs. I really liked Rubio until he lied about immigration and I supported him with donations because I thought he would be a shining star in our party and go on to be president,but after seeing that he changed his tune after being elected I also changed my tune. By the way I am not from Fla.

  2. pamela smith August 16, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    I had such high hopes for Marco. He was young passionate and I thought a conservative Republican that would fight for what America stands for. Then he hops in bed with Obama. I would not vote for him for dog catcher now. He bit the hand that fed him. AS far as I am concerned he is a rino through and through.

    • grouper August 17, 2013 at 5:00 pm

      Marco Rubio has ALWAYS been a RINO it’s just taken. He sold Florida out when he was House speaker in Florida. The Florida tea (in Naples Fl) bought into Rubio hook,line and sinker
      Florida keeps electing these rino’s such as Mario Diez Balart, Ron Desantis and dems such as wasserman, Bill Nelson their all political parasites.

    • Ernest August 19, 2013 at 1:05 pm

      The real problem is the stalemate we are trapped in which is the two party system resulting in us voting for the lesser of two evils at each election. This is the real conundrum that needs to be solved. Another problem is the low information voter. With so much information out there it is hard for some to sort it out. One source may seem credible for a while then eventually you have people covering up the mistakes they made or letting loyalty get in the way of good sense. If we had a vote for all the people that said they would have voted for Ron Paul but he has no chance to win guess who would be in the White House. Most peoples politics are to complex to fit into the labels they are forced into. Most of us are conservative on some things but lean toward being liberal on others.

  3. Jean August 16, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    He turned me off in 2009 an issue with the 2nd Amendment and anyone who goes against us on us on that will never get my vote.I’m very disappointed in him on this what happen to that great story he told about his father was that true if so what is he thinking now of his son????

  4. Bruce August 16, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Marco, enjoy the perks you are getting now, I think Florida will have another Democrat Senator in the next election. I will not vote for you again!

    • Medaton August 17, 2013 at 3:33 pm

      I pray the next FL Senator will be Allen West!

  5. Miguel August 16, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    When the polls show Hillary, defeating any Republican by double digits when the Republican primary comes around… You are going to hope to God that Rubio, will enter in the race! Marco, is our only hope in defeating any Democrat in 2016…

    • The Rube August 17, 2013 at 7:51 am

      We better hope to God we don’t have a weak, worthless candidate like Rubio stabbing us in the back. I’m sure as hell not afraid of that old, nasty witch. But we better leave our hypocrites on the sidelines to take her on.

    • S. Klein August 17, 2013 at 7:52 am

      Maybe. But you saw what happened with Mitt Romney. If the nominee isn’t considered to be a conservative, the base will not turn out in large enough numbers to win.

  6. Perseids August 16, 2013 at 11:02 pm

    Rubio might as well go balls to the wall now.
    He’s never going to be able to buy back his reputation. Rubio resides in the sewer from now on.

    • American Statesman August 21, 2013 at 9:49 am

      So true. The GOP destroyed a true American Grassroots Movement. Forget the TEA Party Movement…..Now is an AMERICAN PATRIOTS’ MOVEMENT.

  10. cindy August 17, 2013 at 8:48 am

    I agree, Marco has reversed his position on a very important campaign issue, and I no longer trust him. I do not agree that Hillary will beat any republican. She has shown with the Benghazi debacle that she is as incompetent as the marxist in the white house now. She is just another alinsky-ite, and I think America has grown quite tired of that. They will have to resort to the same voter fraud if she is going to win, and that is why she is “concerned” about the new photo ID laws on the books. She knows that.
    But Marco, what a tragic waste of human potential. I met him several times. I thought he was the real deal. I dragged others with me to meet him at events, convinced many that they should vote for him. I will never contribute to another political candidate.

    As a Florida resident and a Rubio supporter from the beginning, I’m convinced now that he betrayed his supporters. And he did it for political expediency which has turned and bit him on the arse. The only way I could ever vote for Rubio again is if he stumbled into the GOP nomination in 2016 and was running against the Hildebeest. I hope someone like Allen West takes his Senate seat before he can do any more damage along the way.

  12. George Blackshear August 17, 2013 at 9:23 am

    Rubio was supposed to be the crown prince of the Republican Party, but it didn’t take him long to f*^k that up. Now he is already being seen as a RINO and that is real bad for his future, look at the picture he knows he has screwed up and doesn’t know how to get out of it.

  13. dick kennedy August 17, 2013 at 9:37 am

    Marco, you are a big disappointment! I told everyone I know in the US, that you were the real deal. Now you are a disgrace and I won’t help with your campaign or donate unless you apologize for your horrendous mistake and stay far away from Shumer, Durbin and McCain, 3 despicable Senators. Your claim that Obama will pass an immigration bill anyway, so we should beat him to the punch. Idiocy! I’m glad you were never in a war, you would probably just surrender before the enemy had a chance to defeat you and say they would beat us anyway! Your Father must be so disappointed in you. Shame, shame!

  14. rev gay robertson August 17, 2013 at 10:02 am

    no–I wouldn’t vote for Rubio for anything now! At one point, during the last campaign, I thought he was a true patriot, but after the gang of eight and his alliance with the Rinos I know he’s NOT!

  15. G Speed August 17, 2013 at 10:14 am

    Time to stop with the pro/anti Rubio dialogue and start talking about the next Senator from FL –who will that be? Who is the most likely to step up. In my heart I believe Pam Bondi (former Dem) will give it a go– If she muddies the water we will have two Dem Senators in FL. No doubt the MSM will support her and that will put any conservative Republican out of the running.

    What we need to do on here is front run and vett several “good” candidates before the TPTB and their sycophants in the MSM can preload the primary. –just saying.

    • cindy August 19, 2013 at 8:49 am

      Yes, I was a Bondi supporter, but seeing now that she agrees with Holder and obama on anything- that is a game changer for me. Those 2 are wrong on every position, 24/7, 365 days a year (except on leap year). When Bondi ran she talked all about free enterprise, capitalism, etc, etc, like a good conservative. Sooooooooooooooo, where does the government have a right to prevent 2 airlines from merging? We’ve got to recognize it folks, having the government control every facet of every business is one huge hallmark of marxism and that is the goal of this bunch. I hope to see Allen West on the national scene again, and I would be honored to vote for him to replace Rubio. Bondi will not get my vote. And for those who say they’ll only vote for Rubio for president if he is the republican against Hillary? Forget about it, Reince Priebus had better get over his cranio-rectal syndrome and realize that while reaching out to every minority group he may lose his long-standing base. We need to have the best CONSERVATIVE candidate, not some empty head with a pretty face Rino to run against thunderthighs.

  16. Rone August 17, 2013 at 11:07 am

    Rubio did not go along with the democrats, he pushed this Amnesty bill. He was fully complicit in the lie and continued to be the “conservative” face to sell this trash. Long after the full disaster of this bill started to come out, Rubio and Ryan (don’t forget that!) ran continuous ads trying to sell it. The bill is complete Amnesty full of benefits for illegals and Rubio knew it and wanted it that way. Every statement he made trying to sell this crap was false.

    It seems obvious to me that Rubio fully intended, all along, to use “immigration reform” for political advantage. It is also clear that he cynically intended, even while running for office, to lie about his position on Amnesty. I don’t recall seeing any politician make such a bald faced lie as this. Rubio is completely without integrity.

    I donated to his campaign! I will donate 10 times that amount to anyone who runs against him! I will vote for ANYONE who runs against him, in a primary or general election. The fact is he knowingly and willfully lied during his whole campaign about his support for Amnesty. It doesnt matter what his stated “conservative” positions are, because he will sell out conservatives at any time on any issue. Rubio is a liar and a fraud!

  17. SoWhatBubb August 17, 2013 at 1:14 pm


    I gave $ to Rubio.
    He will never see my $ again.
    My $ will go to anyone that runs against this despicable rat.
    I will give ten times as much $ to anyone that runs against him.
    Rubio is the new McCain.
    The new Rino, same as the old Rino.

    Also, I’ve become convinced that Rubio, is just plain stupid.
    He has squandered an opportunity of monumental proportions.
    His, is a failure of the highest order.
    This stupid ungrateful fraud needs to become unemployed.


  18. MikeR August 17, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    I won’t vote for Rubio again. If he has a Republican primary opponent, I will vote for the opponent and contribute to his campaign. Newly elected FL Congressman Trey Radel is also starting to sound squishy on immigration.

  19. George Fuller August 17, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    Rubio…… toast…..Call him Little Mel. stupid politicians say they are here and aren’t leaving. He is right……they won’t leave unless they are made to fell unwelcome with no jobs and no welfare.

    In regards to Rubio for president……..

    Republicans must not care whether the candidates they want to run for President are eligible or not. Are they Natural Born Citizens?……..most people are naive enough to say if you are born in the U.S.A. then you are a natural born citizen. If that was true then every anchor baby would be eligible.

    If you are interested:

    Ever hear of Emmerich Vattel? He wrote a book titled Law of Nations which governments referred to often. In fact, the framers of the Constitution had three copies they used as they wrote it. One of the descriptions they inserted in the eligibility section of the requirement for the Presidency was the Natural Born Citizen designation. You can locate it by going to the book online to

    Book one Chapter nineteen.

    In addition, in 1814, only a few years beyond the founding of the country a case heard in the Supreme Court titled Venus gave Chief Justice Marshall an opportunity to discuss Natural Born Citizen. During his speech he mentioned Vattel and referred to his descrition of Natural Born Citizen to be the best. I suggest you look up the info and see who is eligible to be President.

    You might also google 4 Supreme Court Cases define Natural Born Citizen.

    After you do that little bit of research you will find Cruz, Rubio, Jindal, Santorum, And Haley are all ineligible! Cruz and Santorum had one parent who was a citizen at the time of their birth, Rubio’s, Jindal’s and Haley’s had no U.S. citizens as parents.when they were born.

    • American Statesman August 20, 2013 at 8:54 am

      Thank you for explaining this and providing the facts. Too many Americans do not understand why “natural born” was added for the POTUS.

      There can be no dual loyalty…..Like BHO or Rubio!

  20. Karen Reed August 17, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    It is difficult to get workers for heavy construction-type or agricultural work — some Mexicans will do it — whites and blacks won’t — so illegal Hispanics in this country should have a way of becoming citizens — Marco Rubio, since he is for amnesty for the illegals here now, would probably be able to get the votes of Democrats — provided he is conservative on other issues.

  21. Angie August 17, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    Like everyone else, I feel double-crossed by Rubio. However, if he did end up being the 2016 presidential candidate running against Hillary, I would still vote for him because I DON’T want to see Hillary win. I would vote for anyone running against her. We DO NOT need another Democrat president!

  22. Medaton August 17, 2013 at 3:40 pm

  23. Karen Schoen August 17, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    Rubio, Bondi, Wasserman Shultz, Ryan, Weatherford and many more are graduates of the globalist mafia indoctrination clinic called the Aspen Institute.
    If you are unsure of your legislator, Google: Aspen Institute and your legislator’s name. The Aspen Institute is a Global Mafia think tank supported and funded by the Islamists and Global Mafia, including Soros, Gates, Saudis and the usual suspects. Our legislators go to the Aspen Institute to be trained into globalization – the elimination of America. Would you be surprised to learn Rubio is a graduate? As a result of this training, there is no right and left, no Democrats and Republicans. All progressives are in the same Global Mafia and filter through the RNC and DNC. Democrats are taught to have no responsibility, love big government and let government handle every aspect of their lives. The Global Mafia can then own everything leaving crumbs for the common folk. This type of government is communism. Republicans who learn Fabian economics based on maximizing debt and public private partnerships are fascists. Together they are members of the Global Mafia Club/Progressives in both the RNC and DNC sitting in Congress and the administration. Just listen to those who want open borders and the demise of America. “In orders to save the planet, we must destroy capitalism,” Maurice Strong UN Environmental Programme.

    • American Statesman August 19, 2013 at 7:40 am

      Thank you for sharing this information Karen. It is time AMERICANS woke up and faced the truth about the liberal progressive GOP gang of anti-American globalists that are destroying America from within.

      Down with the anti-American GOP and the DEMs. Republicans were suppose to care about our “Republic”. A liberal progressive is a liberal progressive regardless of Party Affiliation.

      Party affiliation means nothing.

      It is time we voted for AMERICA and AMERICANS!

    I voted for Marco Rubio last election. HUGE mistake. He lied to ALL of us.
    He went PRO AMNESTY to get Hispanic votes for his 2016 Presidential run for the White House.
    I will NOW work to unseat him full time. WE need to hold these LYING, SELF SERVING Politicians accountable.
    Marco Rubio is Dead Man Walking. Vote him out!!!!

    MARCO: I hope you read all these remarks and take them to heart. You are going to have to talk fast and choose your friends more carefully or you will be finished in Florida. You don’t have much time before election. You have to admit you voted wrong and you views on Amnesty with the gang of eight was way off base, You caved into the Dem. and the President. Stand up and redeem yourself, or you will be through!!!!!!! Do not be such a softy……………..You are wrong and the Dem. are just using you for their own good, Can’t you see that???????? Wake up/

    I agree with your views on “Common Core”

  26. Yana Nar August 18, 2013 at 10:21 am

    After reading ALL comments it appears that no one has read the immigration bill presented by Senate. The original 800+ pages of the bill does have some flaws (is there a perfect Bill???), but it certainly provides a reasonable path to legalization, residence, and finally citizenship to those who QUALIFY. Senator Rubio did place his bet, heavily, on this bill because he believes the existing immigration system is broken(most agree with this) particularly as related to the millions of illegal aliens already here. Something has to be done.
    However, we cannot ignore that our political system is weak because of all the backroom deals and negotiations.This was reflected in the amendments added (another few hundred pages). Senator Rubio took a chance to push the issue forward, probably knowing that the House would not take it, but we cannot blame him for its failure. He is doing the right thing by staying true to his word to propose something to get the immigration system moving forward. The House should revise, tighten, or write its own bill, but the issue has to move forward. This is not a GOP vs DEM issue, it is an American issue. Stop criticizing the messenger and propose better solutions.

    Finally, to the person that claimed Rubio would not qualify for President because of his natural born citizenship…..the Law is simple, the candidate has to be born in U.S. territory, period. Therefore any “anchor” baby can become President. Just ask Obama…

    • American Statesman August 19, 2013 at 5:49 pm

      Two points…………

      1) BHO claims to have been born in Hawaii and his mother was American. Many believe he was NOT born in the U.S.A. Thus, many believe he is an illegitimate POTUS. The fact that the two Houses of Congress would not properly investigate, is the proof that our Constitution has been trashed by the DC gang of thugs.

      2) Rubio’s parents were NOT AMERICANS. Rubio is an AMERICAN, BUT NOT A NATURAL BORN AMERICAN.

      3) Ted Cruz is an AMERICAN, but not a natural born AMERICAN. His mother is AMERICAN, but he was born in Canada AND HIS FATHER IS A CUBAN.

      If you believe in our Constitution, the fact is none of these individuals were/are eligible to be POTUS.

      If we had a legitimate media BHO would have never been elected POTUS and Rubio would have never been elected to the U.S.Senate. Rubio ALWAYS SUPPORTED AMNESTY BUT THE MEDIA REFUSED TO REPORT THE TRUTH!!! RUBIO HAS ALWAYS SUPPORTED LATINOS BEFORE AMERICANS. His loyalty is to his heritage…the Hispanic, Cuban, Latino culture….NOT AMERICA or AMERICANS!!!!!! This is why the POTUS must be a NATURAL BORN AMERICAN……NO DUAL LOYALITY!

    I once supported marco…never again…not even for dog catcher…We lived in south florida and had to move north…my wife and I do not speak spanish and could not get a job in Miami-Dade, or even most of Broward…. when you ask spanish speaking people in south florida to have thier children speak english so the children can assimilate into American culture, they openly look at you and say no …and marco wants me to understand / support his flip-flop….NFW marco!!

      So true. Mr. Marco Amnesty Rubio is all about the Latinos and totally rejects being united as AMERICANS!

      The U.S.A. cannot survive being divided by all the different factions and many of these factions are very very anti-American.

      Most Latinos are just like the Italians, the French, the Germans, the Russians, the Portuguese, etc. etc etc. THEY ARE PROUD TO BE AMERICANS. They want to be UNITED AS AMERICANS and willingly speak the AMERICAN LANGUAGE, but the anti-American Latinos – like La Rasa (the Race) hate America and Americans. They hate the Alamo and openly advertise it. This small group of American hating Latinos believe the U.S.A. stole the Southwest from them and they are determined to take it back. My advice….They better work fast because right now the Muslim Brotherhood and the Chinese Nationals want to take all of the U.S.A. including the Southwest and they do not care about Latinos anymore than the care about Americans.

      President George Washington warned about different factions dividing a united people, dividing the will of a nation and here we are. Read President George Washington’s Farewell Address and then look at today’s U.S.A.


      BE AN AMERICAN OR LEAVE AMERICA!!! Is that too much to ask for?

    I won’t vote for the dem in the senate race, but I sure as heck will also not vote for the RINO! Enough, already! Our only hope is to primary him out.

    When you see someone like rubio down in a hole it is time to load up the manure spreader and dump it right on his head.
    Bury the b-itch !

  30. SSMcDonald August 19, 2013 at 8:03 am

    Establishment RINOs have privately told Rubio that if he wants to get anywhere, he will have to abandon his conservative stance and start agreeing with the establishment. It cannot be any more simple to understand than that. His voting record for the past year or more has consistently slid to the left…. Sorry Rubio, I’ll be voting for a conservative at your next re-election attempt.

    • American Statesman August 20, 2013 at 8:20 am

      Good point. The root cause of our every growing unconstitutional government are the political parties – the DEMs do not support the working class or civil rights and the GOP has rejected our Constitution in favor of easy money where ever they can get it.

      There is only one political party in American and it is the liberal progressive party. The RNC and DNC own our ballot box.

      I encourage AMERICANS TO BE AMERICANS. Leave the political parties and DO NOT DONATE TO ANY POLITICAL PARTY – it is a waste of your money. Donate to individual candidates and groups that support your beliefs – NRA for example – but not the illegal ballot box monopolies known as the RNC and the DNC.

      TAKE OWNERSHIP OF YOUR VOTE AND OUR BALLOT BOX! Nothing will change if we keep electing the same unethical, anti-American “Jerks”.

    Remember the Cuban Airlift in the 1960’s? It’s becoming apparent to me that the offspring of these families are part and parcel of the destruction of this country. Multiply by the thousands of immigrants from other countries who want to stay here without penalty and want natural born citizens to pay their way is absurd. Rubio is not the cause of this problem, but is working to try to undo what liberals(Democrats and RINO’s) are doing to this country. Now that Rubio has “laid his cards on the table” let’s pay attention to how Congressman Cruz and Lee steer the House of Representatives to secure the border first before any amnesty takes place. We cannot allow the Democratic controlled Executive branch or the Democratic controlled Senate to win this battle. It’s time to vote with your honor and restore both the Senate and the White House back into the Conservative hands. If we do not, then expect open borders forever! I take pride in saying that I have NEVER voted for a Democrat and never will. If Rubio is challenged by Allen West, then I will vote for West. But if Rubio runs without opposition, I will support his reelection because he will perform better than any liberal Democrat that decides to run against him.

    Be an Individual…….Be an AMERICAN…….

    I Do Not Choose to Be a Common Man

    It is my right to be uncommon—if I can.

    I seek opportunity—not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me.
    I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed.

    I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.

    I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat.
    It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, “This I have done.”

    Marco Rubio is a sellout and a traitor, along with the other 67 Senators who voted for the amnesty bill.

  36. Greg Zotta August 22, 2013 at 3:20 am

    Kill the Amnesty Bill
    Proponents of the Immigration/Amnesty bill claim there are 11 million people living here illegally, but it is probably more like 20 million and that is why the need to pass this bill into law. Those supporting the Immigration/amnesty bill are Democrat/Statists who look to the illegal immigrants as votes; Union Bosses who look to the illegal immigrants as dues paying members; Corporatists who look to the illegal immigrants as cheap labor; Churches who look to illegal immigrants as contributing parishioners; Establishment/RINO Republicans who look to be liked by illegal immigrants; and the illegal immigrants themselves looking for stuff. Instead of enforcing current immigration laws they say we must pass comprehensive immigration reform now! In trying to sell the Gang of Eight Immigration/Amnesty bill ads are being run claiming the bill calls for more border guards and building the fence. They also claim the illegal immigrants would have to pay a fine, begin to pay taxes, learn and speak English and to get back at the end of the line.

    Let’s look at their selling points. There is no need to pass this Amnesty bill to increase the border patrol, they can just be hired. As for the fence; that is already in the 2006 Immigration Law that they are not enforcing. No need to add another law when there is one already in place, enforce it. As for the fine, what will the fine be and what if they cannot pay? Will they be deported or will the fine be waived; or more likely subsidized? As for paying taxes; many of these illegals are low skilled, working low wage jobs and if you believe Jeb Bush are more fertile than legal white American citizens. Therefore, they will not be paying any income taxes. In fact, they will be getting tax credits i.e. money from the taxpayers, unless our tax system is changed (implement a flat tax or fair tax). What happens if the illegals do not learn English? Will they be deported then? As for illegals getting back to the end of the line, wouldn’t the end of the line be in their country of origin? And what happens to the ones who are waiting to get in legally? Will they be allowed to enter too, which would double the amount of people being let in?
    Those pushing this amnesty bill claim the illegals will not be eligible for Obamacare. Really? They might not be eligible per se to Obamacare, but, that does not mean they will not be treated, unless they change the law regarding treatment to where the medical facility can refuse treatment. What are the chances of that happening? And wasn’t that one of the reasons they gave us for giving us the abomination that is Obamacare. This amnesty bill, accompanied by Obamacare will only exacerbate the unemployment and underemployment of American citizens, because employers could terminate many legal Americans, replacing them with the illegals due to Obamacare.
    There is no reason to pass this monstrous “immigration/amnesty” bill, just enforce the laws already on the books. What must and should be done is secure the borders; enforce current immigration laws against the illegal’s and the people who hire them; let it be known to the people living here illegally that they will be deported; and then work on reforming and streamlining immigration policy. No one is saying they are going to be rounded up and deported right away or all at once. The illegal immigrants did not get here all at once, therefore will not leave all at once. Nevertheless, if the United States started to enforce immigration laws and let it be known that when caught the illegals would be deported many of them would self deport. You do not reward people for bad behavior and by allowing illegals to stay the government would be doing exactly that. If a law is not enforced, is it a law?
    The United States is a sovereign country with borders and laws. The Federal Government’s primary responsibility is to protect its citizens from enemies both foreign and domestic. Our immigration laws are being violated and not being enforced. Article IV Section 4 of the US Constitution states, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.” I would consider the 11+million illegal immigrants in this country amounts to an invasion. Therefore, the 68 Senators who voted for this amnesty bill are TRAITORS to this country and in violation to their oath to defend the Constitution. This bill if made into law will destroy this country. The US House is the firewall to the Amnesty bill being passed. Everyone needs to burn up the phone lines to your US Representative to keep this amnesty bill from becoming law!

      If you believe in our Constitution and the Rule of Law…..The House of REPRESENTATIVES must NOT pass any type of AMNESTY OR IMMIGRATION BILL.

      It is time these REPRESENTATIVES and SENATORS started honoring their oath of office and enforce current immigration laws. We the People – aka LEGAL AMERICANS must take back OUR country from these TREASONOUS TRAITORS – like Marco Rubio, John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Lindsey Graham, etc etc etc etc
