Tripwire Alert – Senator Marco Rubio Announces Long-Shot Reelection Bid – Refuses Commitment To Full 6-Year Term…

rubio conmanAsk yourself why anyone would vote for a candidate who announces his/her U.S. Senate reelection bid and in the same breath refuses to say they intend to fulfill the 6-year term such a reelection requires.

Then ask yourself why would any candidate run for a political office while simultaneously refusing to commit to the term they are campaigning for.

Those two questions simply begin the discussion now that Florida Senator Marco Rubio has stated he has reversed position and intends to run for reelection.

What’s ultimately behind this decision is an intentional construct of the Wall Street legislative priority constructionists (GOPe leadership) to create a dynamic of controlled failure.

Watch Rubio explain his reasoning.

Let us be very clear with each other.

Senator Marco Rubio has no possible chance of winning reelection if the opposing party puts forth any substantive candidate to challenge him.

Marco Rubio is hated, H.A.T.E.D within Florida, for being a back-stabbing quisling who worked against the voters of the state and aligning himself with the DC Vichy Republicans and cocktail class party leadership.

To give you an idea how deep, strong and wide the sentiment amid the Florida common sense conservative electorate is you only need to remind yourself of the primary race outcome from within his own state.

Florida primary

In short, Rubio does not have any loyalty amid the electorate, and is a profound long shot to win reelection.   Then again, the people pushing him (McConnell, Cornyn, Hatch, Cruz and Jeb Bush, et al…) know this too – so why are they pushing him to lose?

The answer is yet again found in the simple context of Donald Trump’s presidential bid.

The GOPe apparatus writ large (all of it) despise Donald Trump because Trump is an existential risk to their grip on power.  That power has an intention; that intention is Wall Street’s legislative priorities.  There are trillions of dollars at stake.

The legislative Republican party leadership in both the house and the senate would do anything to remove the risk that is Donald Trump.  Including giving up their House and Senate majorities if losing those structural political advantages diminished the capability of Trump to dispatch their legislative agenda.

If the GOPe lose the election to Donald Trump, they’re finished – out of a job – they won’t be able to hide the UniParty alignment.  However, if the GOPe lose elections to Democrats they’re still there, still seated at the table, and still in power even in the minority.

  • If Trump wins, and the GOPe drop down to the minority party, the GOPe will be able to hide their Wall Street/UniParty nature and the globalist agenda that comes along with it.
  • If Trump wins, and the GOPe remain the majority party, they will not be able to hide their Wall Street/UniParty nature and the globalist agenda that comes along with it.

In essence, the Republican Party knows if Trump wins and they are in power they will have to drop their Wall Street legislative priority mission…. because to continue trying to advance it would be transparently in opposition to their own president, and there are TRILLIONS of dollars at stake.

In order to avoid the risks outlined above, the Republican goals will be to intentionally field the weakest possible team of candidates for the 2016 general election.  This presents a Win/Win for them.

mcconnell cornyn thune and decepticon caucus

(The Decepticon Caucus)

If the weak candidate loses, the GOPe simply blame it on Donald Trump and further attempt to weaken, isolate and marginalize the risk Trump represents.  It’s a beautifully Machiavellian strategy.  This is what the Decepticon Caucus is really good at, retaining power at all costs, any costs.

The truth is, this year the GOPe have some VERY WEAK candidates at risk of defeat, and that has nothing to do with presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Rob Portman (Ohio), Kelly Ayotte (NH), Mark Kirk (IL) and Ron Johnson (WI), are a few of the vulnerable republican senate incumbents not because of Donald Trump, but rather because they are quislings to the GOPe side of the UniParty apparatus and their flawed and unprincipled character is transparent to their own state electorate. You can easily add Senator John McCain (AZ) to this list.

Leader Mitch McConnell is a snake of the highest order. He knows the limp-wristed, big government, progressive republican, Wall Street cause could most certainly mean Portman, Ayotte, Kirk, Johnson and McCain may lose. [*note* Hopefully McCain loses in the primary] Hence, McConnell now trying to weaken Trump’s candidacy by positioning their potential loss as Trump’s burden.  Adding Marco Rubio to this aforementioned list is simply his best play.

What McConnell is doing is using the vulnerability he himself created to retain power, but the opposite of McConnell’s scheme/narrative is true.

Trump rally illinois 4If the aforementioned vulnerables would have shown some independent spine, refused to accept the Wall Street agenda and supported the majority will of their constituents (do what America-First is about), they would probably win.

If the weak quislings embraced the Trump objectives they might actually benefit from their state constituents seeing them stand up for their best interests.

They might win – and that weakens Mitch McConnell’s standing to get the Wall Street Agenda passed.

♦ The best political play for both Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell is to sell the concern narrative that Trump is toxic and then work earnestly to deliver a self fulfilling prophecy.

This keeps them in power, allows obfuscation by blaming Democrats or the White House for another 4 years, and retains their influence on the legislative agenda. Win/Win

Watch closely and you will see the new breed of globalist RAT’s come out and endorse Rubio’s decision to run for re-election.  Expect Mark Levin to advocate for him; expect Ted Cruz to advocate for him; expect the GOPe to advocate for him….

….and this is advocacy for a guy who won’t even commit to fulfilling his term as Senator.  Think about that against he prior teeth gnashing these same voices exhibited against Charlie Crist.

    By this point, Congress is a mostly vestigial organ on the body politic — so who cares who “controls” it? Republicans have controlled it for awhile now, and to what result against the Obama-controlled Executive branch?

    Trump has said he’ll try to get people in a room and hammer out a deal. That’s the easy way of governing. If they try to sabotage America-first populism, he’ll just shrug his shoulders and say, “Well, my fellow Americans, I tried to negotiate with them, but 90% of them just don’t have America’s best interests in mind, unfortunately in both parties.”

    The apparatus for rule-by-Executive has already been built and fine-tuned by the Obama administration, so two can play at that game.

    Only when we vote in Congressmen who are populists and America-firsters will the President resume good-faith negotiations with Congress. More Trump-like Republicans and more Bernie-like Democrats.

        Would Marco Rubio pass gun control and organize a sit-in like the House Democrats did? Would Democrats in power in the Senate allow even a moderate Republican to be confirmed to the courts? We need to think like Democrats about unity and not say that the two parties are the same, because they are not, and Donald Trump won’t be able to do anything much of substance with Democrats.

That is completely incompatible with our way of life. We can not have segregated neighborhoods that seek to live that way”

If Beruff wins, he seems likely to work with Trump (just based on the several comments I have read here). He may a jerk, but the important thing we need is a Republican majority in Congress to get Donald’s agenda through, or as Sundance notes in this article, to be outed as the phonies they are for opposing it. Just based on that, I would take Beruff over Rubio.

No, Republicans are not the same as Democrats, and the sit-in is one good demonstration of that. Republicans just don’t know how to govern, and if more people got involved in electing different candidates in the primaries, different candidates would be elected in November to office.

    Little Marco has assured FLA voters that he will not remain in the Senate for 6 years. AHA! He and Cruz will run in 2020 for President.

    There are 4 things wrong with this:
    (1) Little Marco did NOT show up for work when he was elected to the Senate. Thus FLA voters lost their representation.
    (2) Little Marco himself admitted that he is an anchor baby. Thus he does not meet the requirements to be President. He is NOT the son of natural born citizens.
    (3) In his unsuccessful and illegal run for Pres, little Marco showed his backside. His hand moment will be remembered forever by those of us who are informed. It was trashy and unpresidential. WTP shall always remember.
    (4) There was a lot of press about Little Marco’s lifestyle. Fortunately there was documented proof of many of the accusations. Fortunately, this will also be remembered by those of us who are informed. In a future presidential bid, these facts shall destroy Little Marco.

    Floridians are SMART. They WILL NOT re-elect this lying loser to the Senate. It does sound like Little Marco is part of the Republican e plan for republican congress members to lose in this election so as to discredit WTP’s President: Donald J. Trump.

    The GOP e have now determined that either (a) Trump will lose or (b) if Trump wins, he will be such a terrible president that they will be able to rescue the party in 2020 with one of their two candidates-Cruz or Rubio – both ineligible for the Presidency because neither of them are natural born citizens.

Rubio repeated this same tactic earlier this year when he endorsed Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal immigrants in a Spanish media interview with Jorge Ramos.”

    Marco Rubio king of the H1B. Every day I go to work and have to compete with 500 H1B Indians who come from a country with a 10th the standard of living and who will work for a 10th of my salary. I hope the Rube gets roundly defeated by whoever he is running against.

  28. I kind of disagree with the premise here. These GOPe types are so detached from reality they probably believe Rubio to be wildly popular. His loss will be so large we need to be careful it doesn’t blow back on Trump’s campaign there.


  29. Carlos Beruff it is then, I think he’s our best bet right now, and lets see how he does in the Senate.

    In my area of Florida I have been seeing a lot of commercials for Carlos Beruff. He parrots Trump but there is something about him I don’t like. I was going to vote for him though as the best of the worst. Then today I found this about Wilcox. I haven’t seen any commercials for him, but I like this guy.

      Seems like a really good guy, except he seems to buy into the notion that we need to be the world’s policeman. If you really listen to what Trump has said, you would see his skepticism for interventionism. There are many good people like this man, but I truly believe they are deluded to think that they are fighting to keep us free. That is their intention, but that is not what they are being used for. They are serving the Empire, not the Republic.

    Rubio lied last time to get our votes, he will NOT get them again. He ran saying he was against amnesty, then worked with The Gang of 8 to write a pro-amnesty bill. It failed, so he changed sides again. But he is a lying opportunist with no values beyond what he can get for himself. He is exactly the sort we do not want to elect.

    “Expect Mark Levin to advocate for him [Rubio]; expect Ted Cruz to advocate for him; expect the GOPe to advocate for him….”
    It was very telling to me when Cruz approached Rubio as VP — Rubio, with his disastrous positions on trade and amnesty. “Mr. Constitutional Conservative” would entertain someone like that? It confirms that he never was Mr. Constitutional Conservative.

    The Cruz campaign had conducted polls to float Rubio as VP, and the poll results were positive. So, “On March 21, Politico broke the news that Cruz had, indeed, approached Rubio with a proposal for a ‘unity ticket,’ but the Florida Senator had refused.”

    So Cruz was willing to do anything to win, even if it meant compromising conservative principles. Since Cruz was prepared to have Rubio as VP, no doubt he will endorse his candidacy for Senator, for all the reasons stated in this CTH article.

    Trump should give Rubio one chance to get on board and if he doesn’t then Trump should campaign against him. Trump could hold a rally in Orlando and tell thousands of his supporters that Rubio isn’t worthy of trust and that they should vote their conscious in the Florida Senate race. :p

      Liddle Marco has endorsed Trump. A tepid endorsement, but nonetheless he did honor his pledge unlike a few of the other losers. Trump encouraged him to run for re-election & there’s little doubt he will fully endorse him.

      RUBIO has been a Horrible Senator, beyond not Going in to Vote . When he did~~ Rubio Voted for Everything he said he would NOT do~! He never ever responded to ANY Telephone Calls about Concerns & totally Ignored His BASE~! #NEVER RUBIO~!

    What percent vote in this primary? It’s not tied into the presidential race. Are there any local important ballot issues being voted on?

    From my experience voter turnout is low and only really dedicated voters or party loyalists turn out for a race like this.

    I don’t know the candidates, so someone needs to vet them and come up with one to stand behind… and the reasons why they are the one to support.

    So, Rubio now is saying he will not speak at the convention, and is not sure he will even attend? Now won’t campaign with Trump in Florida. And he wants to run for Senate to stop some of Trump’s policies? What a turncoat….his word means nothing. I hope he loses in a landslide.


  39. I don’t know. When I hear his answers it strikes me the GOPe wants him to run because he is one of them and they hope to have him on their side, i.e., they hope and think he will win. They are so out of touch.

    Email I received yesterday from Senate Conservatives Fund, (founded by Jim DeMint), regarding Rubio…..

    U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) announced yesterday that he has changed his mind and will run for re-election in Florida this year.

    This is a big change in this race given that Senator Rubio stated repeatedly for over a year now that he would not run for re-election.

    However, given Senator Rubio’s significant name awareness, it’s no surprise that Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL), our endorsed candidate for the seat, has decided to withdraw from the Senate race and run for re-election to the U.S. House in Florida’s 6th district.

    “Casey and I are grateful for the support we have received across Florida and throughout the country and plan to continue the fight for limited government principles and a strong national defense,” DeSantis said.

    The GOP establishment claims that Senator Rubio is the only candidate who can win the race in November, but that’s simply untrue. He may be the only candidate they want to win it, but he’s not the only one who could have won it.

    Congressman DeSantis led the field in fundraising and was capable of winning both the primary and general elections.

    Be that as it may, the race has now changed and we wanted you to know.

    Thank you for supporting Congressman DeSantis. Your support will help him win re-election to the U.S. House and put him in a strong position to run for higher office in the future. Perhaps he might even run to replace Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) in 2018.

    We will continue to keep you updated on the important races where you can support true conservatives who will fight for our principles.

    Hey guys – question: does the Florida ballot allow straight ticket or party line voting?

    If so, a strategy to lose could potentially fail as Trump voters could usher Rubio back in by voting straight ticket.

    Watching the Cavs coverage yesterday, I noticed the political ads.

    The Portman attack ad featured Portman’s support for China, in floor speeches and in Senate votes, and for supporting the bad China trade deals.

    Portman’s ad featured Portman standing with a mother from a rural small farm town, whose son had died from heroin overdose, sponsored by Senate Majority PAC. The Senate majority is GOPe, this PAC is actually Dems. Ohio is the Heart of the Rust Belt.

    Stupid, stupid people. As if we needed affirmation. Or, very smart.


    • cali says:

      Well the GOPe was successful in Ohio in one aspect – but a deceptive and evil success: Rioters and professional agitators/protesters gained their permit to protest outside the convention center during the convention while DT supporters are forbidden by law to be outside. Convoluted but effective in interrupting the convention which most likely will include bad optics and attacks which they will use against DT.

    I wasn’t aware you could run for only part of a term in any public office, except when that office was vacated by the death or removal (i.e., prosecution and conviction) of the incumbent. That’s not the case here – so how can Boy Loser run for only part of his term?

    Trust weary FL voters will fill Lil’ Marco’s boots with cement and finally deep-six him for good.


  45. Joe says:

    Give us an estimate of Lil Marco’s chances of winning the primary and then (should he win that) his chances of winning his seat again. 50-50? 45-55? etc.


    • Juan says:

      The primary will be a cakewalk. Right now it’s maybe 50-50 or better in the general. Once Trump endorses him it goes to 60-40 that he will win. All the talk of Trump campaigning against Rubio is foolish. He will need a bulk of the 27% of Rubio’s primary voters to beat Hillary. Without Florida’s 29 electoral votes getting to 270 will be extremely difficult.
