The Republican establishment begins to rally around Marco Rubio

November 30, 2015

 Marco RubioYou have seen me refer to Marco Rubio as the Republican establishment’s Plan B to Jeb Bush. It is no secret that the establishment hates Donald Trump, and I think hate is the right word for it, and they will do anything to take him down.

 We all know that Jeb Bush is the establishment’s candidate and in a normal year that would mean he would be our nominee because the establishment would throw millions of dollars into his campaign in order to convince enough people to vote for him–this is how we got both John McCain and Mitt Romney in years when there were actual conservatives in the race.

  This year is different because Donald Trump has the money to match the establishment but that does not mean they will not try to find someone else to challenge him if they cannot push Jeb Bush over the top. While Mr. Trump is enjoying quite a bit of popularity right now there is still a voting block in the Republican party that does not trust him and the GOP is hoping they will rally around one candidate whereas right now the anti-Trump vote is splintered.

  With Ben Carson starting to fade away there appears to be only two other candidates who might make a run at the front-runner and they are Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. If there is a person who the Republican establishment holds in as much contempt as Donald Trump it would have to be Ted Cruz because the Senator from Texas has bucked the establishment more than once on the Senate floor.

  And now it appears as if the Republican establishment is starting to put Plan B in motion as more and more Republicans begin to endorse Marco Rubio.

  Here is more:

Ted Cruz has built his Senate career and presidential campaign on his willingness to stick it to the Republican establishment. And now that he’s gaining momentum in the primary, his many GOP nemeses in Congress are returning the favor by quietly coalescing behind Marco Rubio.

Senior Republican senators who’ve clashed with Cruz for years have had nothing but nice things to say about Rubio even as he’s dissed — and largely ditched — his day job in the Capitol. Just this month, Rubio has racked up endorsements from nine members of Congress, compared with two for early GOP front-runner Jeb Bush. More House endorsements for Rubio are set to roll out in December, according to campaign sources, and several GOP senators said privately they expect their colleagues to get behind Rubio once the GOP field thins.

The movement toward Rubio appears to be as much about anxiety over the possibility of Cruz going up against Hillary Clinton as it is affection for the Florida senator. The idea of Cruz as the nominee is enough to send shudders down the spines of most Senate Republicans.

Mainstream elected Republicans now see Cruz as a bigger threat than Donald Trump or Ben Carson to clinch the nomination — but equally damaging to their party’s chances of winning the White House and keeping the Senate next fall. Rubio would be a much stronger general election standard bearer, they believe.

  Of course this comes from the same group of people who thought John McCain and Mitt Romney would be strong standard bearers for the party and we all know how those two elections turned out. Don’t believe the hype…

      I have one more comment (maybe), stupid was putting this man (term used lightly) into any office in the United States of America….not once but twice (plus the state senate in Illinois (I did not vote for him then either) ….and you all know what I think of stupid people. The smirk on his face as he is talking is way beyond smart seeing that he is talking ABOUT his people IN a FOREIGN country….yep, stupid!

        Lou did you see some of the vids about a guy who talked about his relationship w/ Bari [Larry Sinclair – died recently]? It’s sickening, but speaks to some things: http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2010/07/25/mom-of-murdered-obama-gay-lover-speaks-up/
        Also connects to the murders of homo’s in Wright’s church (satanic basically) that he had relationships with who are now dead. More evidence that he’s only a front/plant of the luciferians in high ranking places – where pedophiles are the norm and human sacrifices are performed (they believe in taking the life of innocence for their own longevity). This probably only sickens you more, but I state it because what sickens you with this debase non-man, is just the topping of the corruption. And you’re right too about the increase of ‘stupid people’ = the masses that are blinded by debase social conditioning. It’s all part of the take-over and 1 world rule.

      Some of his background shows who he is today. Plus look at M. (a.k.a.) Obama – notice the male features. Since then, has probably being given more female hormones to turn ‘it’ more female. (Brit has some things to say about that too). Both of them of degenerates placed in positions by the sickies who have power/money/control. This one shows quite a bit: http://www.helpfreetheearth.com/news821_Obama.html

        Yep, didn’t nip and tuck. Thing about that is if it’s so ‘okay’ why hide it? Let the masses know up front who they’re ‘hiring’ for their 1st Lady. That ‘hiring’ part is a joke too. All the tax payers $$$ going to a fraud for vacations etc – ‘using’ it as they please and ‘using’ the American people for their own purposes. That election was stolen, whether by rigging it (the electoral), hacking the computers or whatever, but the lies and deception continue on. ‘Transparency’ means ‘hidden.’

        Yep Steve – if it’s all ‘okay’ why not just state it … because they live in the ‘deceiving’ realm of reality and are used to promote ‘subliminally’ immorality and perversion. The ‘Lie’ becomes the ‘truth’, little by little, more and more.

        Hey Zip,
        Get off Barry’s back (pun intended). What s the bigger deal, 10 or so black queers playing Johnny on the pony in heaven prematurely or 43 rednecks going to hillbilly heaven courtesy of the Clinton mafia (44 if you include Ron Brown who was not involved with the White Water land deal.) …once again proving black lives matter just not to mulattos.

        Ha. You sure have of way of stating things Peter! [like my brother who points to him bowing to the Arabs …] Yep, those you mention are the very ‘sickies’ who forward the darkness – like that kids movie NeverEnding Story The ‘Nothing’ = Darkness + Destruction (sucking out the light of truth and goodness).

        Those in power think they’re on the winning side but … alas… those in positions of honor, yet understanding ‘nothing’, are like the beasts that perish and never see the Light of Life. If that’s any consolation Peter. They’re under the delusion that they’re not only going to win but live forever as gods – not going to happen. Revelation 20 speaks to what will though http://thekingsbible.com/BibleText.aspx?bibleid=66001001#

    All should realize than Barry Mohammed Bin Obama’s pusillanimous weak kneed pussy-whip attitude towards ISIS and Islamists in general is all forgiven by the world as he plies his climate agenda. Even his inappropriate attitude towards the Paris massacre is all but forgotten or pardoned and has no place here in today’s Paris as he stands before the world and denigrates the US on this stage which he now dominates. And it bears repeating “He is a man twice elected elected because of the color of his skin rather than the content of his character.

    For many years to come this country, should it survive sixteen years of Obama and Hillary Clinton presidencies, will bear the scars of his orchestrated race war between blacks and whites and his more subdued war on non- muslim religions and Judeo-Christian values.
    Now is not the time to try to de-rail what seems to most assuredly coming down the pike with a bought and sold amateur the ilk of Marco Rubio.

        Problem is Lou those who are ‘experienced’ are in on the con game – the American people don’t have representation. The only ones who get into key positions are the enemy – not a hopeful thing to say, but look at those who are fired from the military, knocked off (reporter/journalist), ‘asked’ to resign or what happens to ‘whistleblowers’ who are imprisoned or run like Snowden – still not sure where he fits into this stage show – if he was really a threat would he still be alive? {regardless that he’s exiled in Russia}). https://twitter.com/snowden

        Guess after you explain it that way, maybe Rubio could not do any worse than Obama. The problem I have with him is the immigration issue.

        The night before last I went to a shooting range to take a tactical class on terrorists and risk assessment. The guys giving it, one was a retired city officer and the other was a retired officer that had terrorist training and clearance up to Federal level. The second was a man I knew back when I was doing Emergency Services for the County along with co/writing County wide drills. From what he was saying, the City police (the old timers I knew) have all retired and the young guns coming up in the ranks just do not have the knowledge or the ability to “play well with others”. You have to be able to work WITH others and guess alot of these guys know it all. That is dangerous when you have to have someone watching your back.

        He was telling me that with the current Muslims ( you know the ones that want to harm us) that are coming into the country and that are already here, if there is a hostage situation, in his opinion, you try at all costs to get away. He said they are not planning on letting hostages go and they have such little respect for another human being that, this would be your only hope of living. In the past, most hostage situations could be defused, but this is a whole other ball game. We discussed big gatherings and he said if it were him, right now, he would not congregate. He said from what he sees, the terrorists are not out to get police or military, but the American people and the more the better. I think we already knew this was what we were up against, but to hear someone I respect with National level security tell me that, I am in agreement that this is what will happen.

        We were discussing Conceal Carry and he said everyone should carry and he said you have to comes to terms with IF you could kill someone to protect yourself of another victim. He said you need to get out and practice, not just have an 8 hour class and you assume you are proficient with your sidearm. He also stressed that females need to really consider carrying.

        It was a good class. They will be giving others where you are out with pop up figures, buildings and you are on the move. He said to remember that someone that is wanting to kill you is NOT usually standing and waiting for you to take aim. True! Sorry, this is so long, just thought I would let you know what I had been doing.

      I think he is way below his pay grade to assume he knows anything that Putin is thinking…but guess if he says it in an authoritative way, SOMEONE will believe him. What a speaker he is…too bad he is not Presidential material, too.
