Let’s talk politics for a moment. Why? Because I’m trying to work myself off my pain meds and so, I can’t sleep. Sorry, you’ll just have to put up with me. Well, the debates over. According to the MSM it was a rousing success for Trump and didn’t Bush and Kasich do well? Why bless their hearts, yes they did. Oh, and didn’t Cruz look awful trying to prove he didn’t lie about Carson not having enough pairs of pants in his closet. And what about Rubio. He repeated the same line four times. Okay, yes he did. Of course, and I’m not a Rubio fan, I think he was right in what he was saying. Obama knows exactly what he’s doing because no one could mess up a country as badly as he has without having a blue print to follow. His, is a deliberate attack on the country that gave him everything he has today.
But back to Rubio. Electing Rubio, after killing the Gang of 8 bill, would be like marching against the Vietnam War in the 60’s and winding up with Nixon running things. Let’s admit it, Rubio has now effectively wormed his way into a position where championing mass immigration and amnesty would involve breaking what seems to be an explicit policy pledge. Of course anyone whose followed Rubio knows that’s exactly what he’ll do. a) because he’s done it before, having opposed amnesty when seeking his Senate seat only to become its front man on arriving in DC. b) He dissembled when necessary to push the GO8B so why not disable now? c) The GOP establishment thinks that’s exactly what he’ll do; d) His retreat from the GO8 has been grudging and weaselly, always giving as little ground as he thinks he can get away with until he discovers he has to give a little more; e)He still hasn’t repudiated the bill, let alone apologized for it; and most important, f) actually achieving an Enforcement First solution would mean standing up to the Dems who will demand quick legalization, and the bulk of the GOP Congressional caucus, who will be happy to settle for a fig-leaf of enforcement they can try to sell their voters (not unlike the fig-leaf that was added to the GO8 bill by the for-show-only Corker-Hoeven “double the border patrol” amendment). The current flash mob of GOP representatives streaming into Rubio’s camp suggest they recognize him as someone who won’t make their lives difficult — when that’s exactly what’s required.
Rubio’s not going to drive Jeff Sessions from the capital. But you can count on the combination of Rubio and Speaker Ryan to quickly pass an amnesty bill that like the GO8 contains only the most chimerical guarantees of new enforcement measures. You can also expect them to promote and defend trade, including “trade in services” that involves foreign workers performing those services on American soil. As for lowering immigration levels? We have a better chance of discovering time travel than getting Rubio-Ryan to take up immigration-reduction bills,” one Senate immigration advisor said. Corporate lobbyists will be in the saddle, and the promising Sessions movement will have effectively been defeated–probably permanently, given how mass immigration creates ethnic lobbies for more mass immigration. Historians will get tenure trying to explain how this happened so suddenly.
In short, for the Sessions movement-and a particular vision of America, in which even unskilled, non-bright citizens can work a full day and earn a respectable living–Marco Rubio is a state-of-the-art K-Street kill shot, a sudden existential threat, and we may have only a few days to recognize this.
For a complete run-down of what Rubio is all about Ed Martin, at Eagle Forum has written an unbelievably in depth analysis of what a Rubio presidency would do to America and the deliberate lies he’s used to get him into a position to finish what Obama started. It’s far too long for me to detail, I couldn’t do it justice but it’s a must read as it is a mind-boggling assessment of what Rubio is hoping to do. That boyish grin hides a very devious heart. Even if you can’t read the entire article browse through it and you’ll pick up the salient points. http://www.eagleforum.org/immigration/rubio-record.html
So now, after all this discouraging news, I’m going to attempt to go to sleep. Wish me luck.
