Refresher: Rubio’s Deceptions
Refresher: Rubio’s Trail and Amnesty Deception
From the start, the Immigration bill S.744 was constructed to deceive the public. And, did a good job of creating the false illusion of greater security. But Rubio’s claim of enforcement ‘triggers’ was a dishonest argument. His amnesty scheme was chock full of deception with many behind the scene maneuvers all designed to obfuscate truth. The bill made America less safe, not more.
Rubio’s scheme allowed illegal aliens to be legalized immediately. All at a huge cost to the US taxpayer [Note] and sovereignty of our nation. Like Obamacare, the legislation was crafted behind closed doors with pro-amnesty lobbyists, unions, immigration lawyers, and Progressive groups like La Raza and AFL-CIO representing illegal aliens. Groups that stood to make millions from this legislation.
The Gang of Eight prohibited anyone with a significantly different opinion on immigration reform from providing input. Law enforcement: border sheriffs, interior sheriffs, deputies and immigration agents, and the ICE Union President were all locked out of discussions.
The ‘de facto’ leader of the Gang of Eight and public face of immigration reform in the Senate leading the charge was Marco Rubio. Every gang needs a leader. His task was to convince conservatives and TV and radio talking heads that Obama’s second-to-be signature achievement was both bipartisan and good for America.
The Gang of 8 Amnesty scheme was Obamacare Part Deux. Seemingly sexy slogans. Rubio is a smooth talker. Watch this video as he shimmies his way through. Like Obamacare, it’s was all or nothing; several bills tied into one. The Bill was huge, complex and progressive. It was designed to serve politicians. Rubio made many false claims, illusionary promises, cons and lies. This speech exemplifies Rubio’s deception.
Rubio’s “media offensive” con-tour started by trying to sell the idea his bill wouldn’t give amnesty when, in fact, it was instant Amnesty. The term “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” (“CIR”) is a euphemism for an illegal alien amnesty and S.744, the 1,076-page bill he helped write, ripped up the Constitution for a falsely-framed EARNESTY RAINBOW.
To understand Rubio, you have to understand his Chief of Staff; a man by the name of Cesar Conda. Who is Cesar Conda? He’s a pro-amnesty immigration lawyer, who once worked as a DC lobbyist for the Association of Immigration Lawyers [video], mutual friend and close associate of fellow amnesty pusher Grover Norquist, who together have carried out their three-decade long Amnesty Jihad. Like Norquist, the amnesty pushers on the left like Cesar Conda.
Norquist, a corporate lobbyist and co-founder of the Islamic Institute, has had ties to CAIR, radical Islam, known terrorist financiers and unsavory relationships with Muslim activist for years. This video warrants particular scrutiny of Norquist, who actively promotes and advances the Islamic agenda. These are Norquist’s bedfellows; it’s why he actively petitioned support for the “Ground Zero Mosque” and it’s why he is very active in “Muslim outreach.”
Norquist is on the Advisory Board of The Hispanic Leadership Fund, member of the Council on Foreign Relations [CFR], Founder of Americans for Tax Reform [ATR] and good pal of felon Jack Abramoff and GOP stooge Karl Rove whose Crossroads GPS group has been a major donor to Norquist’s fund. Secret emails exclusively obtained by Breitbart News show the libertarian Cato Institute, Norquist’s ATR, and Rubio colluding on immigration reform “messaging” after the Boston Marathon bombing.
And, then there is Norquist’s lobbying on behalf of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Norquist’s primary interest in DC is Norquist. For his part, he is hitting the media trail attempting to combat what he calls the “bitter enders” who oppose the bill by trying to counteract the effect of “a handful of radio talk-show hosts who talk loudly.” Also assisting Rubio, Conda and Norquist in their Amnesty scheme is the Southern Poverty Law Center [SPLC], a Soros-backed group. SPLC’s history.
Cesar Conda sat on the Editorial Advisory Board with George Soros of the publication, The International Economy Magazine. He also actively worked to promote and advance Judge Sotomayor’s nomination. Conda was a lobbyist for the powerhouse private prisons GEO Group who supported open borders and government money for incarcerated illegal aliens. He also lobbied for the US Chamber of Commerce, who supports the Gang of Eight Amnesty bill. His paw prints also extend to the expensive bank bailouts, something Rubio claims he was against.
Conda is a domestic policy wonk. His government experience runs deep. In fact, Conda has weaved and bobbed between so many roles in Washington he was included in Roll Call’s “Fabulous Fifty” list of top congressional aides. He undertook policy roles spanning the 1996 Dole-Kemp to Mitt Romney’s 2008 Presidential Campaigns. Both Conda and Norquist worked together to destroy prop 187 in California in the 1990’s.
But, what also sets Rubio’s office apart is Cesar Conda’s supposed continued ties, major abuse of power, and financial relationship with his lobbying firm, Navigators Global. Navigators clients included GlaxoSmithKline, AT&T, Visa and Citigroup, which got $45 billion under the bank bailout. Rubio’s ties to K-Street are extensive. His deputy chief of staff, Sally Canfield, is a former lobbyist for Sanofi-Aventis, a French drug company.
And, from 1997 to 2005 Rubio himself, was a lobbyist. Consider what one of his most vocal critics said about him here, which likely put a halt to Romney selecting Rubio as VP candidate. Consider: City commissioner, lawyer, lobbyist, one-time GOP Party of Florida American Express card holder, top-echelon House leader and, ultimately, House Speaker, oh and Jeb Bush water boy. Florida is a politically corrupt state. From 2000 to 2010, there were 781 federal convictions on corruption charges. That’s an average of one every five days for 10 straight years.
Like Conda, Rubio has amnesty as a core belief. He is John McCain with an ‘accent’; and without a military record of crashing planes. His past record is relevant. All you have to do is look at history. This page provides history of the efforts of Floridians to enact immigration enforcement legislation in the 2008 Florida Legislative Session. All legislative results were thwarted, at the time, by House Speaker Marco Rubio.
Rubio stalled and “blocked” all enforcement bills in Florida stating: “There is nothing the state of Florida can do unilaterally to solve global warming. And there is nothing we can do unilaterally to solve immigration.” Rep. Juan Zapata, R-Miami and Miami Rep. David Rivera, the son of Cuban exiles, usually ran anti-enforcement interference for Rubio in the Florida House.
But there were other legislative matters. Rubio pushed for free in-state tuition for illegal aliens on Florida taxpayers dime. He fought to allow a “self pay” (no insurance) for medical care without the hospital collecting a balance on the hospital billing; while prohibiting the hospital from pursuing civil remedies. This would serve illegal aliens by protecting them from detection. And he made an attempt to keep all “working papers” (such as dead bills) from seeing the light of day to the public.
Rubio’s Amnesty Scheme
Rubio’s shenanigans started with the ‘deceptive messaging’ of ‘de facto’ amnesty. As Front Page Mag points out, there’s a big difference between not fully enforcing the law & legalizing a crime. Just as there is a difference between not arresting a drug dealer and legalizing heroin. A lack of proper enforcement is not ‘de facto’ amnesty. Its lack of enforcement. Amnesty is legalization. The bill was a cocktail of lawlessness, executive discretion, and legalistic trickery crafted by the organized, open-borders left.
Its fake provisions in S.744 are outlined here. Sadly, Rubio was PIMPING his ‘de facto Amnesty’ scheme on all TV and radio shows including Univision and Telemundo. He was featured in this TV ad which was run on Fox News as part of a $300,000 ad buy bought by The American Action Network, a group founded by former Sen. Norm Coleman and GOP donor and long-time activist Fred Malek. Two cafeteria Republicans.
And, this ad was from Mark Zuckerberg’s new “FWD.us” group; which drew scrutiny, even from Factcheck.org. Zuckerberg had a similar group making similar ads for liberal audiences. The advisory board of the shell “conservative” group included Haley Barbour, former lobbyist for the government of Mexico, and several people linked to the ‘open border’ Bush family; Sally Bradshaw, former chief of staff to Jeb Bush; and Dan Senor and Joel Kaplan, former W. Bush advisers.
When it came to pushing illegal alien amnesty, Senate bill S.744, Rubio spun words like a North Eastern Liberal. This wasn’t just amnesty. It’s was INSTANT AMNESTY. The massive implications of millions of foriegn invaders being pumped into the electorate was and is detrimental. Rubio was complicit in actively assisting the Democrats in their biggest voter registration drive in history; 30 million illegal aliens is enough to create some 50 new congressional districts – primarily Democrat.
Rubio’s “messaging” was falsely advertised as a comprehensive reform to secure the border and strengthen the immigration laws before allowing legalization. This was a blatant lie. Was Rubio lying in 2010 also? There were warnings signs of being Corrupted. Rubio was gift wrapping amnesty for Obama with the deliberate intent to deceive conservatives and Tea Partiers. Consider, who else would throw a rally for Rubio in support of the S.744 bill at Rubio Headquaters? Yes, Barack Obama.
No Republican should use Obama’s malevolence as a baseline from which to craft public policy. Rubio was forcing Republicans to spend the next two decades arguing why poor Hispanic children shouldn’t have access to government benefits. Amnesty made as much sense as rewarding a burglar with the stolen jewels. If you REWARD a criminal with his ill-gotten goods, expect more crime.
The much-ballyhooed “triggers” Rubio pushed didn’t come into play until after illegal aliens were given the ability to obtain legal status to live and work in the US. The bill was a lethal mix of legalistic trickery with on-off-switches that bureaucrats could flip at executive discretion. The bi-partisnan Center for Immigration Studies, went as far as to say the penalties and enforcement provisions were ‘fake’.
In this video, Rubio pretends the states will enforce immigration laws. But on page 496, the bill explicitly preempted states from enforcing immigration laws. Rubio’s con game had no end. He said illegals would have to ‘get in line’. Guess what? The line was 19 years long. To clear it in ten years required doubling the number of legal immigrants. And in Rubio’s scheme, the number of H1-B visas expanded more than two-fold.
The language of the bill didn’t come close to what Rubio says. Practically every Rubio claim was empty. The comprehensive effects from chain migration alone would bury the Republic. The bill established a New Americans Task Force charged with ensuring that federal programs “adequately address” the healthcare, education, and job training needs of new immigrants (Sec. 2524).
Once illegals gained provisional legal status, which was immediately, they’d qualify for in-state tuition rates at public colleges, a subsidy funded by taxpayers (Sec. 2245D(d)). And even worse for fiscal conservatives, virtually all funding was classified “emergency” under the Statutory ‘Pay As You Go Act’ of 2010. Government Spending on food stamps, Head Start, welfare, housing subsidies, Social Security, Medicaid, unemployment insurance and other benefits would have expanded, unlimited.
Rubio’s scheme would have added an additional 33 million permanent workers via amnesty and future immigration in the first decade alone. Thirty three million is the equivalent of the top 20 most populated cities in the US. Fortunately, Sen. Sessions had uncovered a slick loophole that provided illegal aliens with guaranteed access to all welfare and entitlement programs. Oh, and Rubio’s scheme called for: a national biometric database on all adult Americans, not just the invaders. All this was what the media was not telling you.
And the Fox News channel was being deceitful as well. Senator’s McCain, Rubio and Graham had discussions with “top hosts” at Fox, including Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Neil Cavuto, to get them to be “relatively sympathetic to the Gang’s proposed bill.” The New Yorker quoted McCain as saying that News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch and Fox News chairman Roger Ailes are and were big advocates of immigration reform. So now you know.
But, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. And Rubio stumbled. As fake conservative Tea Party Groups sprung up in Tampa and West Orlando, Florida in support of Rubio-Schumer’s plan, Rubio’s manipulation and deception marched on, promoting a ‘fake’ 2X border fencing security amendment. But Rubio’s fake amendment was already law, mandated seven  years ago, in The Secure Fence Act of 2006.
In the end, the Senate’s Gang of 8 immigration bill, S.744 passed, and Marco Rubio had done what Ted Kennedy had failed to do for three decades in the Senate: pass Amnesty. Let that sink in. And, if all that was not enough, after S.744 passed, Marco Rubio reaped a $3 Million windfall from Mega Donors into his coffers, clearly rewarding Rubio for his efforts and achievement.
Almost immediately upon the Senate bill passing, Rubio pivoted, and embarked on a disingenuous crusade sponsoring legislation to prohibit abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy. Clearly an intent to ‘misdirect.’ By then, the conservative voters knew Rubio had sold-out. Who could trust him. He repeatedly lied. He worked with Obama’s White House with daily and weekly conference calls.
In his grand scheme, Rubio presented himself as having conservative values. Anyone who supports amnesty is NOT conservative. And, immigration reform is not a single issue. It is apparent Marco Rubio is a fraud. A man not to be trusted. Morally vacant. Sold to the highest bidder. He happily received his thirty pieces of silver. He betrayed conservatives. He can never be trusted at his word on ANYTHING again.
Proof positive this guy was and is still being bought and will be for sale at a price. What will his going price be for betraying his fellow countrymen be in 2016? Politicians like Marco Rubio are exactly why conservatives can’t take anything Republicans say at face value. If you don’t have a problem with what you just read, you’re part of the problem.
