Rubio and Cruz release tax returns, Pressuring Trump to follow

From: cnn.com,  by Eugene Scott, Chris Frates and Theodore Schleifer,  on Feb 27, 2016,  see the article HERE. Washington (CNN)Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz released income and federal tax data Saturday as part of an attempt to pressure Donald Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner, to do the same. Rubio released five years’ worth of financial information, saying the rates his family paid were in line with tax rates paid by Americans of similar income levels. And Cruz and his wife disclosed four years’ worth, bringing in more income than did the Rubio family. But both campaigns … Continue reading

Beating Trump In Debate

From: nationalreview.com,  by Peter Spillakos,  on Feb 16, 2016,  see the article HERE. NOTE: This article was apparently written before the February 13th debate in South Carolina and published on February 16. Mr. Spillakos’ strategy wasn’t followed until last night’s debate (Feb. 25th in Houston). But Rubio and Cruz must’ve read his article in between because they did attack last evening as if it were a wrestling match. Garnet92. Easy for me to say. I have a little bit of advice for Cruz and Rubio tomorrow when it comes to defeating Trump. Some of the advice is tactical, but the … Continue reading

Rubio: Romney 2.0

From: politico.com,  by Mike Zapler and Anna Palmer,  on Feb 20, 2016,  see the article HERE. The Florida senator and 2012 GOP standard-bearer are largely in sync on policy. But Rubio and his backers believe his life story and storytelling talent make all the difference.  GREENVILLE, S.C. — At every campaign stop, Marco Rubio calls it “the biggest lie in American politics” — the notion that Republicans are the party of the super wealthy, and hopelessly out of touch with the working class and minorities. The party, in other words, that Democrats eviscerated with Mitt Romney at the helm in … Continue reading

From: breitbart.com,  by Julia Hahn,  on Feb 19, 2016,  see the article HERE. In an exclusive Q&A with Breitbart News, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Council President Chris Crane provides never-before-heard details about the 2013 Gang of Eight immigration fight that are likely to shake up an already tumultuous presidential race.

From Legal Insurrection: Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz ARE “Natural Born Citizens”

From: legalinsurrection.com,  by William A. Jacobson,  on Sep 3, 2013,  see the article HERE. A preface by Garnet92: Since Donald Trump has recently (Feb 15, 2016) threatened to sue Ted Cruz over what Trump says is an issue of Cruz’s possible ineligibility for the presidency, I thought that it would be timely to present yet another in-depth opinion of why Cruz IS eligible to be president. Note that I’m presenting Professor Jacobson’s initial summary (Section 1) and his conclusions (Section 14) as well as a link that will allow reading as much of his arguments as you like – it is VERY LONG … Continue reading

GOP Debate: Trump verges on tantrums; Rubio, Bush and Cruz all have solid night

From: foxnews.com,  by John Fund,  on Feb 14, 2016,  see the article HERE. The ninth Republican debate was the nastiest. Gone were the early debate focuses on pointing out differences with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. This was hand-to-hand combat on Saturday night with no insult unsaid. “You are probably worse than Jeb Bush. You are the single biggest liar,” Donald Trump told Ted Cruz after the Texas senator referred to the real estate mogul’s penchant for backing liberal positions. “This guy will say anything. Nasty guy. Now I know why he doesn’t have one endorsement from any of his colleagues.” Cruz … Continue reading

Dick Morris: Rubio, Fox News Big Losers From New Hampshire

From: newsmax.com,  by Newsmax Wires,  on Feb 9, 2016,  see the article HERE. With conservative blogs calling Fox News “the unofficial Super Pac of Marco Rubio,” the network may join the Florida senator as one of the big losers Tuesday night. Trump – who had been battling the network over its biased coverage – not only triumphed, but Fox’s favored candidate came in a disappointing fifth place. “I am shocked at Fox News,” political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV Tuesday night. Morris, a frequent past Fox commentator, said he had appeared on the network more than 2,100 times and … Continue reading

Senior Senate Staffer Reveals the Marco Rubio Story You’ve Never Heard

From: breitbart.com,  by Julia Hahn,  on Feb 6, 2016,  see the article HERE. On today’s program of Breitbart News Daily, Donald Trump’s Senior Policy Adviser, Stephen Miller, shared his never-before publicly discussed insights into Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’s duplicitous conduct during his push to get the Gang of Eight bill through the Senate. At that time, Miller served as the communications director for the man who organized opposition to the bill, Senator Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).  Miller recalled how throughout the Gang of Eight push, Sen. Rubio “directly deceived” immigration law enforcement and the American people. Miller recounted one story in particular about … Continue reading

The Conservative Case Against Marco Rubio

From: pjmedia.com,  by Michael van der Galien,  on Feb 6, 2016,  see the article HERE. Now that Marco Rubio appears to be rising in the polls, more members of the establishment are trying to convince voters that although they are supporting him, he really is profoundly conservative. Looking at Rubio’s Liberty Score rating of 79%, it’s clear that he is indeed more conservative than most other members of the establishment, but that doesn’t make him the most principled and electable conservative in the race. In fact, a rating of 79% means they give him a C. That’s significantly better than Jeb … Continue reading

Who Are The Candidates Really? Part 3 – Rubio

Part 3 – Marco Rubio   Soft spoken and mostly complimentary about others, Rubio has garnered accolades for his oration and in the case of some he worked with has been rained on by others for what they have been false and misleading stabs in the back.  He has been called “wonder boy” and several other things by media.  He has also picked and chosen apparently what he chooses to vote on over the years.  My question there is why?  If he serves the people is he supposed to pick what he wants to vote on?  Citizens don’t have that … Continue reading

Cruz vs. Rubio

From: townhall.com,  by Erick Erickson,  Feb 5, 2016,  see the article HERE. Emphasis is Garnet92’s. I have, since last September, written several times that I think the 2016 campaign comes down to a race between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. The loss in Iowa after leading in the ten polls preceding the caucuses has taken the wind out of Donald Trump’s sails. He is refusing to invest in New Hampshire and will not buy expansive data to micro-target voters. I suspect Christie, Bush, Kasich, and Fiorina fade. Ben Carson is already fading. Despite Carson’s attacks on Ted Cruz over urging … Continue reading

Marco Rubio’s Electability Problem

From: pjmedia.com,  by J. Christian Adams,  on Fed 2, 2016,  see the article HERE. There hasn’t been this much excitement in the luxury boxes since the 1991 Kentucky Derby when Mane Minister showed at 87-1. Marco Rubio’s expected third-place showing set off a frenzy of spin and sly promotion in the commentary class. The conventional wisdom is that Rubio is the more electable Republican in November as compared to Ted Cruz or Donald Trump. The conventional wisdom is wrong, just as it was in 2012 and 2008. Marco Rubio has two significant problems that render him a problematic November candidate. … Continue reading

Open-Borders Money Backs Marco Rubio

From: townhall.com,  by Michelle Malkin,  Dec 18, 2015,  see the article HERE. Political analysis of the Las Vegas debate immigration dust-up between Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio is missing a key ingredient: the money factor. You can read the lips of the candidates till the cows come home. But you’ll get to the truth much faster when you learn where pro-amnesty power brokers have placed their bets and hitched their wagons. Rubio’s brazenly fraudulent campaign to paint Cruz as soft on illegal immigration is a flabbergasting attempt to distract from the Florida junior senator’s faithful allegiance to the open-borders donor … Continue reading

Did Ted Cruz Release Classified Info in CNN Debate?

From (NewsWest9) AP: The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Wednesday he has asked his staff to look into whether Texas Sen. Ted Cruz released classified information during Tuesday night’s GOP presidential debate. Cruz made a claim during an exchange with Sen. Marco Rubio about the new USA Freedom Act, which Cruz supported and Rubio opposed. Cruz said that “nearly 100 percent” of phone numbers can be checked for terror ties under the new program, compared with “20 percent to 30 percent” under earlier Patriot Act provisions. Here’s the exchange: RUBIO: He is and so are those that voted for … Continue reading

The Immigration System Marco Rubio Wanted

From: washingtonexaminer.com,  by Byron York,  on Nov 13, 2015,  see the article HERE. Never let it be said that I’m not fair. To that end, since I posted a summary of, and a link to Ted Cruz’s newly released immigration plan, in the pursuit of equal time, here is Byron York’s take on Marco Rubio’s “Gang of Eight” immigration plan of 2013. Remember that Rubio was one of the original authors along with Chuck Schumer, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham – three real conservative favorites. Garnet92. The 2013 Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill is the signature achievement of Marco … Continue reading

Rubio: Donald Trump’s plan to deport illegals, build border wall, “makes no sense”

From: breitbart.com,  by Katie McHugh,  on Oct 26, 2015,  see the article HERE. Failed ‘Gang of Eight’ architect said on Sunday that frontrunner Donald Trump’s immigration plan to put Americans ahead of foreign workers and alien criminals “makes no sense.” “No, his rhetoric is a little louder, but if you think about where he was six months ago, his position on immigration six months ago was nothing like what he’s saying now, and even what he’s saying now borders on the absurd,” Rubio said on CNN’s State of the Union. “He’s going to deport all these people, and then he’s going to allow … Continue reading

My Prediction: A Cruz-Rubio Ticket

Cruz is without doubt the most intelligent, literate and cultured person running for president. From: pjmedia.com,  by David P. Goldman,  on Oct 12, 2015,  see the article HERE. Republican voters think the economy is the number one issue but can’t manage a public discussion on economic policy, as I observed Oct. 4 (“Who are you, and what have you done with the Republican Party?“). They flail at hot-button issues, defunding Planned Parenthood, for example, and look for scapegoats such as illegal Mexican immigrants (whose numbers are actually falling). It seems pointless to make predictions of any sort in the midst … Continue reading

Jenner, Rubio, Cruz Shock Parochial Mainstream Media

From: breitbart.com,  by: John Nolte,  on: April 25, 2015,  see the article HERE. Our bubbled mainstream media got a serious crash-course in reality this week with the revelations that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio don’t hate gays, and that Bruce Jenner, who is in the process of transitioning into a woman, remains a Christian Republican. During a two-hour interview Friday night, Jenner said to a noticeably puzzled Diane Sawyer, “I’ve always been more on the conservative side.” Still in shock, Sawyer then asked if he’s a Republican. Jenner responded in the affirmative, ”Yeah. Is that a bad thing? I believe in … Continue reading

Are Jindal, Rubio, and Cruz eligible to be President?

Here’s a question that has been pondered since 2007: exactly what does the term “natural born” mean as it is used in Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution? And, how does that apply to three possible Republican candidates for president. The subject came up during the 2008 Presidential campaign when there were questions about both Barack Obama and John McCain. I’m not going to refight that battle here, suffice to say that it was never actually resolved, it was just pushed to the back burner, to the point that Barack Obama has since been elected to the office – twice. But … Continue reading
