Marco Antonio Rubio

Marco Antonio Rubio is a traitor.

Marco Antonio Rubio is a traitor.

Marco Antonio Rubio is a traitor.

Marco Antonio Rubio is a treasonous United States Senator that has called on Congress to ‘permanently’ reauthorize core provisions of the post – 9/11 USA Patriot Act, which are due to end on June 1, 2015.

“This year, a new Republican majority in both houses of Congress will have to extend current authorities under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (aka – Patriot Act), and I urge my colleagues to consider a ‘permanent extension’ of the counterterrorism tools,” Rubio wrote in a Fox News op-ed.

Simply said, Senator Rubio is calling to ‘permanently’ extend the unconstitutional legal framework that allows the NSA to collect the bulk U.S. phone metadata — language of all American citizens.

Many supporters of the Patriot Act have said one of the bill’s strongest points is that its periodic sunsets force Congress to reconsider the authorities as it strives to balance civil liberties with security.

Many believe it was very important there is an expiration of the Patriot Act and the provisions that would ensure that we as members of Congress could analyze it a few years down the road. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., told attendees at the State of the Net conference Tuesday, January 27, 2015. “Is this not just what we intended?”

Some lawmakers critical of the nation’s surveillance programs used Rubio’s op-ed to mock his position. Democratic Rep. Jared Polis called for the intelligence community to begin monitoring Rubio 24 hours a day.

“If Senator Rubio believes that millions of innocent Americans should be subject to intrusive and unconstitutional government surveillance, surely he would have no objections to the government monitoring his own actions and conversations,” Polis said in a statement Tuesday, January 27, 2015. “Maybe after his 2016 strategy documents are accidentally caught up in a government data grab, he’ll rethink the use of mass surveillance.”

Critics of government surveillance, including Edward Snowden, insist that no evidence exists to support the claim that such bulk collection of U.S. phone records help protect national security — and may even distract intelligence agencies from other, more useful intelligence.

Nevertheless, Senator Rubio for years has repeatedly defended the NSA’s unconstitutional spy programs revealed to the public by former agency contractor Edward Snowden.

Senator Rubio also suggested that tech companies such as Apple and Google should not create too-tough-to-crack encryption standards on their mobile devices and digital services. This in turn, will make it easier for both American and foreign governments to unlawfully spy on everyone throughout the entire world.

Additional Information

Marco Rubio’s treasonous actions are not limited to the Patriot Act. His voting record is even more revealing. It reinforces the dictate that politicians put their corporate sponsors’ interest first and their political party’s interests second. No room for Country. Rubio voted against Senate amendment 1126 (S Amdt 1126), which would have prohibited the detention of US citizens without a trial, voted for Senate amendment 1274 (S Amdt 1274), which would have authorize detention after trial during wartime, voted for the increase in State University tuition (CS SB 1710), voted against prohibiting the FDA from approving genetically engineered fish (S Amdt 2108), and so on.

Furthermore, Senator Marco Rubio speaks the same as his liberal socialist colleagues in Congress. He repeats the talking points that call for war on anyone who doesn’t align, including American citizens themselves. He regurgitates the policies published on globalist papers to end with nation states that do not submit to the corporate-controlled regime that governs over the world today. Even simpler; he wants another war where the US is directly involved in, with troops on the ground, to keep the military industrial complex gravy train going, even though the United States doesn’t even have money to pay the interests on its current debt.

One of the worst offenders among the RINO Republican establishment is Florida Senator Marco Rubio. He was one of the original gang of eight amnesty traitors along with John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ).

Senator Marco Rubio worked in tandem with the deceptive House Speaker, John Boehner in the revival of the Mike McCaul (R-TX) bill that is fraudulently represented by establishment Republicans as a piece of border security legislation. Those in the know, including the Border Patrol union, say it does not increase security. It is just another example of the subversive nature of corrupt government officials who are determined to undermine the will of the people in exchange for their own personal rewards.

Perhaps the sellout Rubio can’t grasp the concept of serving the people of the United States, or that this is not an issue of personality or individually. It is a constitutional matter and a legal one, with those like Rubio who support the criminal acts are equally guilty of a criminal assault on our nation as well.

Marco Rubio is the First Hispanic American Traitor.

Marco Rubio, the new rising star in the Republican Party who many say may occupy a relevant position during a Mitt Romney presidency, is often meeting with globalists and talking at globalist organizations during conferences and other events. He is not an angel at all, even though he seems to be enjoying the kind of praise Barack Obama had before 2008. This state of affairs is repeating once again because most of the population is still ignorant about the two-party dictatorship system and the false choice paradigm between one Republican puppet and one Democrat puppet. Most of those people still believe that they live in a Democracy or a Democratic Republic where their votes are dutifully counted.

Marco Rubio just as many other new faces on both sides of the corporate-controlled political landscape is like Alice clones in Resident Evil. They are grown and harvested from the beginning to play a role in the political arena. That is why Rubio, just as all other globalist-sponsored politicians has recently admitted that he would launch an attack on Iran. When asked about what he would do to prevent a nuclear Iran, he said people should be prepared for such an event. “Yes and I think that we need to begin to prepare people for that,” Rubio said. The current Florida senator responded to questions on this issue last week while speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations. It is early to know whether Rubio is speaking in favor of attacking Iran only to gain support from his constituents or the establishment itself or if he actually intends to push for an attack in the near future.

His previous responses about a nuclear Iran haven’t been too different, that is why it is possible he will maintain his public support for an attack even if he is not chosen for a higher office. Rubio also called for an attack on Syria while he spoke at the Brookings Institution last April. Back then he said, “We should also be preparing our allies, and the world, for the reality that unfortunately, if all else fails, preventing a nuclear Iran may, tragically, require a military solution.” He also called for the United States to ignore any United Nations resolution that did not allow or called for an attack on Syria. He said the US should directly send armed forces into that country to aid the supposed rebel fighters, who in reality are local terrorists many of whom are member of Al-Qaeda. Rubio added that the lack of a powerful head, namely the US, would not allow the west to carry out an open attack in the region and that this was the reason why America should commit to blowing up both countries. “In the absence of American power and American influence and American leadership, it’s hard to do that.” Unfortunately, Rubio did not make it clear how he would go about paying for the new wars.

Although an attack on Syria and Iran will be sold on humanitarian grounds, just as it was done with Libya, the truth is that the corporate controllers have made it clear in their writings that the so-called liberation and humanitarian aid provided to countries in the Middle East are just excuses to sell the lies to the public. In reality, all the military industrial corporate complex wants is to get rid of any and all leaders and nations that do not play along. In its own documents, the Brookings Institution, the place where Marco Rubio spoke a few weeks ago, admits that it is all about regime change and nothing else. The link to the Brookings memo has been broken, but you can see an image of the original PDF on the link below.

In the document written by Daniel Byman, Michael Doran, Keneth Pollack and Salman Shaikh, the think tank says that Syria is on a crumbling path and that regardless of the way it collapses, it will be a difficult situation for the United States and the people of Syria. The paper also calls Bashar Assad a ruthless thug for using violence against US and NATO sponsored rebels, who the writers call the resistance, but makes no reference to the uncountable deaths the US has caused in Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan, for example, while using the same methods they criticize as Assads tools to strengthen his tyranny. In the last paragraph, the document says that to protect US interests and to avoid the killing of Syrians, they United States “must walk this tight rope”.

But Marco Rubio’s treasonous actions are not limited to wanting to attack Iran or support blowing up people in Syria. His voting record is even more revealing. It reinforces the dictate that politicians put their corporate sponsors’ interest first and their political party’s interests second. No room for Country. Rubio voted for the National Defense Authorization Act (HR 1540), voted against Senate amendment 1126 (S Amdt 1126), which would have prohibited the detention of US citizens without a trial, voted for Senate amendment 1274 (S Amdt 1274), which would have authorize detention after trial during wartime, voted for the increase in State University tuition (CS SB 1710), voted against prohibiting the FDA from approving genetically engineered fish (S Amdt 2108), and so on.

On attacking Iran Rubio repeated the widely debunked claim that the Iranian leadership worked day and night planning on how to destroy Israel. “If Iran gets a nuclear weapon then the Saudis will also seek one, and so will other nations,” said Rubio at the CFR. He then pointed out that as a country that actively supports terrorism as a tool of state craft, Iran could not possibly be allowed to enrich nuclear resources any further. Mr. Rubio again forgot to mention that his country has historically sponsored terrorism and terrorist groups all over the planet to carry out regime change in nations that politicians like himself deem non compliant with his bosses’ wishes. Rubio added that Iran could not be trusted with a nuclear weapon because they would share the technology with nations or people who would not commit to American interests. An interesting question to ask Rubio is what is the name of the nation that developed and detonated a nuclear bomb and also what he thinks about that nation sharing such technology with other repressive regimes in the western world.

During the question and answer period of his speech at the CFR, Rubio said that it would be the first time in history that a government with insane people like Iran would have access to a nuclear weapon. In the past, he said, only straight thinking leaders and nations had access to it. But again, it was those straight thinking people who detonated the bomb, not the ‘crazy’ Iranians or Pakistani people. “This is a country that shares IED technology with which American soldiers are killed. What is to say that they wouldn’t share nuclear technology?,” emphasized Rubio. Doesn’t the United States share military technology with Israel, China, Korea, Pakistan and other countries? Aren’t those regimes also responsible for the murder of thousands of people who dare speak out against their leaders? In the case posed by Rubio, and should things be equalled, the United States is responsible for all those murders as well.

“This is not we don’t like them, this is there are real implications to it,” warned Rubio. He finished responding the question about Iran, but forgot to mention the real reason why Iran or any other country for that matter would want a nuclear weapon, which is the same reason why the US, Israel, Pakistan, India and South Korea, among other nations have nuclear capabilities: Security. The only reason why the US hasn’t attacked Pakistan, for example, is due to the fact that this country would not think twice about blowing the US off the face of the planet should America or any of its allies attacked. The same would happen with Russia, if it felt sufficiently threatened. If Iran possessed a nuclear weapon, the talk in Washington and Brussels today would not be about when the attack should come, but whether it would be a wise decision given Iran’s ability to respond. This is a fact that Marco Rubio either doesn’t understand or doesn’t want the public to know. That is how dumb he thinks people are.

So how do you know that Marco Rubio is the first Hispanic-American Traitor? He speaks the same than his colleagues in Congress. He repeats the talking points that call for war on anyone who doesn’t align, including American citizens themselves. He regurgitates the policies published on globalist papers to end with nation states that do not submit to the corporate-controlled regime that governs over the world today. Even simpler; he wants another war where the US is directly involved in, with troops on the ground, to keep the military industrial complex gravy train going, even though the United States doesn’t even have money to pay the interests on its current debt. Marco Rubio is just another corporate puppet, a traitor who should be tried and if convicted, be punished as hard as the law permits in cases of treason.

UPDATE: April 21, 2015

Marco Rubio says we need to continue giving amnesty to so-called “Dreamers” (Illegal Aliens) even before our borders are secured.

    The chief spokesman for the presidential campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in an on-record interview with Breitbart News that the senator, if elected president, would not require a secured border before he gives legislative and permanent amnesty to recipients of President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    Rubio intends to, if elected to the White House—as he laid out in a Spanish-language interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos this weekend and was subsequently confirmed by Conant—eventually undo DACA. But he would not do so until there is a legislative replacement that provides the legal status—or amnesty—to DACA recipients on a permanent basis.

    “For the sake of argument let’s deal with the kids separately,” Conant said. “We wouldn’t repeal the executive order for the kids on day one, and we would work to replace it with legislation—well, he wouldn’t work to replace it, he would replace it with legislation that gave them a permanent legal solution to their status.”

Of course, once the kids are given amnesty, then their parents couldn’t be deported. That would be too cruel! To me, it seems clear that Rubio will simply continue Obama’s policies on amnesty for illegal aliens. I listened to Rubio on Mark Levin’s show recently, and he clearly said there should be no dealing with current illegals here until our border is secure. Now, in Spanish, he is saying something else to Jorge Ramos.

Fortunately, we have other choices.

    Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY), two other declared GOP presidential candidates, and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate, have each said in interviews with Breitbart News that one of their first acts as president will be to reverse all of Obama’s unconstitutional and illegal executive actions and orders. That includes DACA. In doing so, they would technically be revoking the temporary legal status that Obama has—illegally, and outside the purview of Congress—provided to about 800,000 illegal aliens through DACA.

UPDATE: May 12, 2015

Marco Rubio wants to extend the NSA’s unconstitutional surveillance program.

“The government is not listening to your phone calls or recording them unless you are a terrorist or talking to a terrorist outside the United States,” Rubio writes in a USA Today op-ed posted on May 10. He insists there “is not a single documented case of abuse of this program.”

“Despite recent court rulings, this program has not been found unconstitutional, and the courts have not ordered a halt to the program,” Rubio adds.

He then cites the secret court responsible for issuing surveillance warrants as a benchmark. “In fact, this program has been found legal and constitutional by at least 15 federal judges serving on the FISA Court on 35 occasions,” Rubio claims.

Rubio conveniently ignores the fact the surveillance program has operated without the consent of Congress or the American people since its inception. The Florida Republican excuses this illegality by saying “the federal government mobilized to defend the country and prevent further loss of innocent life” after September 11, 2001. He also mentions the PATRIOT Act.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled last week that the NSA surveillance program is rogue and is not authorized by section 215 of the PATRIOT Act (the act was ruled unconstitutional in 2007, a violation of the Fourth Amendment).

“We hold that the text of § 215 cannot bear the weight the government asks us to assign to it, and that it does not authorize the telephone metadata program,” the Court of Appeals ruling last week reads. “We do so comfortably in the full understanding that if Congress chooses to authorize such a far-reaching and unprecedented program, it has every opportunity to do so, and to do so unambiguously. Until such time as it does so, however, we decline to deviate from widely accepted interpretations of well‐established legal standards.”

The NSA has routinely violates rules set down by the secret FISA court. Information from Intelligence Community Documents Regarding Collection under Section 501 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act reveals the agency crossed referenced a selected list of some 16,000 phone numbers against databases which contained millions of records on Americans’ telephone numbers.

US District Judge Reggie Walton, who oversaw the secret court, said in 2009 he was “deeply troubled” by the NSA accessing domestic phone records without “articulable suspicion.”

Moreover, an independent government review board said last year “certain aspects of the program’s implementation raise privacy concerns” and the NSA has pushed “the program close to the line of constitutional reasonableness.”

While establishment Republicans and Democrats alike insist the illegal surveillance program prevents terrorism and stops the “further loss of innocent life,” as Rubio writes, studies reveal NSA spying on the American people does nothing to prevent terrorism.

“Our investigation found that bulk collection of American phone metadata has had no discernible impact on preventing acts of terrorism and only the most marginal of impacts on preventing terrorist-related activity, such as fundraising for a terrorist group,” said Peter Bergen, director of the New America Foundation. The group analyzed cases involving 225 people recruited by al-Qaeda or other terrorist groups.

Despite the findings by the New America Foundation, government officials continue to claim terror threats have been averted as a result of massive, unchecked and unconstitutional surveillance.

“Fifty-four times this and the other program stopped and thwarted terrorist attacks both here and in Europe — saving real lives,” Republican Rep. Mike Rogers, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, said in July, 2013.

The claim, cited initially by NSA chief Gen. Keith Alexander, has been debunked.

“We’ve heard over and over again the assertion that 54 terrorist plots were thwarted” by NSA surveillance, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., told Alexander at the Judiciary Committee hearing in October, 2013. “That’s plainly wrong, but we still get it in letters to members of Congress, we get it in statements. These weren’t all plots and they weren’t all thwarted. The American people are getting left with the inaccurate impression of the effectiveness of NSA programs.”

Real Reason for NSA Surveillance Grid: Political and Social Control

Congress continues to promote the fallacy that the NSA is valiantly protecting American innocents from evil terrorists because the surveillance grid now in place is required by the state and the elite that control it.

“These programs were never about terrorism: they’re about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They’re about power,” whistleblower Edward Snowden said in December, 2013.

“Instead of focusing on catching actual terrorists, police spy on Americans who criticize the government, or the big banks or the other power players,” notes Washington’s blog.

The FBI and its precursor at the Justice Department have used surveillance and sabotage to undermine and neutralize political movements for more than a hundred years.

The behavior of the government in response to the nonviolent Occupy movement bears out this assertion. The FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and elements of the private sector — a combination that represents the true nature of fascism — teamed up to undermine and destroy the movement.

“Do we hear an echo from the abyss of the counterintelligence programs of the 1960s and 1970s, when FBI memos — I have some in my own heavily redacted files obtained through an FOIA request — were routinely copied to military intelligence units? “ asks Washington’s blog.

It should come as no surprise the leading presidential candidates, with the notable exception of Rand Paul, all routinely support illegal and unconstitutional NSA surveillance of Americans.

As the Occupy experience and earlier COINTELRPO operations reveal, the elite need massive and unprecedented surveillance to maintain control of politics in America. The NSA is not concerned with a handful of unruly and largely ineffective terrorists. The NSA and the state are seriously concerned about the real enemy — the American people.

Bernard “Bernie” Sanders

Bernard “Bernie” Sanders is a traitor.

Bernard “Bernie” Sanders is a traitor.

Bernard “Bernie” Sanders is a traitor.

Bernard “Bernie” Sanders is a United States Senator from Vermont, and self-described socialists.

Every committed socialists needs a plan. Karl Marx had one, and so did Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong. Add to that group socialist senator Bernie Sanders, who is considering running for president (as a Democrat) and has already announced a 12-point plan at the Huffington Post. He writes:

As Vermont’s senator, here are 12 initiatives that I will be fighting for which can restore America’s middle class.

1. We need a major investment to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure: roads, bridges, water systems, waste water plants, airports, railroads and schools….. A $1 trillion investment in infrastructure could create 13 million decent paying jobs and make this country more efficient and productive.

Why does this sound so familiar? Because it is! Remember the Obama stimulus plan? That too was a trillion-dollar investment in our “crumbling infrastructure” (the favorite amorphous buzzword for government spending). How many millions of permanent jobs were created from that? I think the exact number was… zero.

2. The United States must lead the world in reversing climate change and make certain that this planet is habitable for our children and grandchildren. We must transform our energy system away from fossil fuels and into energy efficiency and sustainable energies…. and we need to greatly accelerate the progress we are already seeing in wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and other forms of sustainable energy.

Good news! Our planet is currently habitable for our children and grandchildren. Nothing further needs be done! However, if we move away from fossil fuels to cutting-edge Don Quixote technologies from the 1900s, like windmills, our children and grandchildren will be paying enormous costs for energy and will have no energy at all when the wind isn’t blowing (for windmills) and when the sun isn’t shining (for solar).

3. We need to develop new economic models to increase job creation and productivity. Instead of giving huge tax breaks to corporations which ship our jobs to China and other low-wage countries, we need to provide assistance to workers who want to purchase their own businesses by establishing worker-owned cooperatives.

This has been tried in many countries. Israel used to have cooperatives called “Kibbutzes.” I say “used to” because most of them went bankrupt. When people were not rewarded more for working harder, and people were rewarded for not working at all, the system went broke.

4. Union workers who are able to collectively bargain for higher wages and benefits earn substantially more than non-union workers. Today, corporate opposition to union organizing makes it extremely difficult for workers to join a union. We need legislation which makes it clear that when a majority of workers sign cards in support of a union, they can form a union.

Union workers in places like Detroit have good jobs at good wages with good benefits…the ones who still have jobs, that is. Many lost their jobs because the wages unions demanded for unskilled labor caused the auto companies to collapse – not once, but several times.

5. The current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is a starvation wage. We need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage.

Every time you raise the minimum wage, the poor suffer, because more jobs disappear, and the products produced by minimum-wage labor become more expensive. The minimum wage is supposed to be a training wage, where people go to get their first step on the ladder leading upward. Those who learn are promoted and get higher wages. Those who don’t…well…

6. Women [sic] workers today earn 78 percent of what their male counterparts make. We need pay equity in our country — equal pay for equal work.

Will we start this policy in the White House? In the offices of Democratic Senate and House staffers? Will we hire committees of thousands of bureaucrats to go into every company and judge the work of every employee to decide what is “equal work”? Because that is the only way such a policy could be put into effect.

7. Since 2001 we have lost more than 60,000 factories in this country, and more than 4.9 million decent-paying manufacturing jobs. We must end our disastrous trade policies (NAFTA, CAFTA, PNTR with China, etc.)

I think what Senator Sanders is saying here is that he supports tariffs. It’s funny, though, that he doesn’t say tariffs. Tariffs acquired a bad reputation after they helped lead to the Great Depression.

8. In today’s highly competitive global economy, millions of Americans are unable to afford the higher education they need in order to get good-paying jobs. Quality education in America, from child care to higher education, must be affordable for all.

Is Senator Sanders going to require colleges and universities to make sure that all their professors are working 40-hour work weeks in the classroom? Is he going to audit the costs of universities, find out how much the teaching component costs, and then require universities to lower tuition accordingly? If so, I congratulate Senator Sanders for taking on the liberal college money-making establishment!

9. The function of banking is to facilitate the flow of capital into productive and job-creating activities. Financial institutions cannot be an island unto themselves, standing as huge profit centers outside of the real economy. Today, six huge Wall Street financial institutions have assets equivalent to 61 percent of our gross domestic product – over $9.8 trillion…. They are too powerful to be reformed. They must be broken up.

If banks are profit centers, how do they make profits? The only way is by investing in the economy, real estate, industries, and businesses. These activities create jobs.

10. The United States must join the rest of the industrialized world and recognize that health care is a right of all, and not a privilege. Despite the fact that more than 40 million Americans have no health insurance, we spend almost twice as much per capita on health care as any other nation. We need to establish a Medicare-for-all, single-payer system.

Health care is a right in many countries, such as Cuba and North Korea. However, having a right to health care is not the same as receiving health care. In a single-payer system, the incentive to innovate and create medicines is lost, and the demand for medical care will far outstrip supply.

11. Millions of seniors live in poverty and we have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country. We must strengthen the social safety net, not weaken it. Instead of cutting Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and nutrition programs, we should be expanding these programs.

The more we spend, the better off these people will be – so he says. But where will this money come from? We currently have over 18 trillion dollars in debt, and that doesn’t even count unfunded obligations to Social Security and other programs. If we incur more debt, and our economy collapses, as is happening in countries like Greece and Portugal, the poor will suffer even more. The best anti-poverty program is a free-market economy, which creates jobs. A job is the best “safety net.”

12. At a time of massive wealth and income inequality, we need a progressive tax system in this country which is based on ability to pay.

Now Senator Sanders is quoting Karl Marx! “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” But we already have a progressive tax system in America. If you combine federal and state taxes, in some states, like California and New York, “the rich” pay over 50% in taxes. Does Senator Sanders think an even higher rate will inspire job-creators to work even harder?

Senator Sanders will be 75 years old in 2016. His campaign ideas are only slightly older.

Additional Information

From the website, this is the Oath of Office, as it is administered to US Senators:

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

On Senator Bernie Sanders own webpage, an article appears which describes Sanders as a socialist:

When Vermonters chose Sanders to replace retired Sen. Jim Jeffords, I-Vt., in 2006, some senators doubted whether the impassioned socialist known for his untamed white hair and fiery oratory would fit in with the staid Senate.

The American Constitution is wholly incompatible with socialism. These reasons are mainly because first; the government can never, ever be the purveyor of our rights, and second; our Constitution is a charter of negative rights and negative liberties. These concepts are both diametrically opposed to socialism.

Anyone who swears to bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of The United States, but openly identifies themselves as “socialist”, has in fact sworn a false oath. We should all take grievous offence at anyone who pays the oath lip service.

US Senator Bernie Sanders Demands A Federal Reserve Bailout Of Greece

It should hardly come as a surprise when a hard-core US socialist like Senator Bernie Sanders comes out with demands that his socialist peers in Greece be bailed out by none other than the Federal Reserve: in fact, it does show why while so many quasi-socialists hate when the Fed bails out the “loathsome” banks, they love when the Fed bails out everyone else. And yes, socialists like Senator Bernie Sanders are known to demand for bailouts – in fact the more often, and the more frequently, the better.

How many examples of Bernie Sanders hypocrisy can you find in 4 sentences?

We need more games to cheer conservatives in these trying times. Let’s play one now. The name of the game is “How many examples of Bernie Sanders hypocrisy can you find in four sentences?”

Are you ready? Set? Go!

On the stump, Mr. Sanders pledges to take direct aim at the wealthy, diminish their power, expose their tax havens and break up the largest financial institutions in the country. He tells working-class Americans that he would fight for higher wages, guaranteed health care, family and medical leave and paid vacations.

“This grotesque level of [income] inequality is immoral…. It is unsustainable, and it is not what the United States of America is supposed to be about,” Mr. Sanders said in Madison.

1) Diminish the power of the wealthy. The wealthy can’t arrest anyone or confiscate anyone’s money. Who is the real powerful entity that Bernie isn’t talking about? (A hint: he works for them.)

2) Expose their tax havens. Companies don’t repatriate income from other countries because of high corporate tax rates and double-taxation. They are havens only because American tax policies are so punitive.

3) Break up the largest financial institutions. Is Bernie referring to the Federal Reserve? Because that is the largest and most powerful one there is.

4) Bernie will work for higher wages – presumably higher minimum wages, which means that fewer people will have jobs, and the costs of everything produced will become more expensive, impoverishing everyone else.

5) Bernie will fight for guaranteed health care. There is guaranteed health care in Cuba and North Korea as well, but that doesn’t mean anyone gets treatment. Why aren’t Bernie and his staff on Obamacare plans, by the way?

6) Family leave and medical leave laws. Will Bernie be pushing to apply these to the general population, or specifically to his staffers on Capitol Hill?

7) Bernie finds income inequality immoral – the idea that one person with greater ability and who works harder makes more money than another person who doesn’t. In a perfectly moral society, we will all make the same amount of money no matter how hard we work and no matter what we do. Now, isn’t that moral?

8) Bernie says income inequality is unsustainable, but the economy is sustainable because people with money invest in businesses that keep the economy going. How else does the economy keep going, if not by capital investment from the wealthy? Eliminate them, and then the economy becomes unsustainable.

9) Where did it say in the Constitution that everyone should have the same income? Are you sure Bernie is reading the right constitution?

Well, that’s nine examples of blatant hypocracy in four sentences – a new record, even for Bernie.

By the way, thanks to the Wall Street Journal for this fawning piece of journalism. Hard left, corporatists…they are so hard to tell apart anymore.

Report: Bernie Sanders Used Campaign Donations to Pay Family Members Over $150,000

Bernie Sanders constantly says that he wants big money out of politics, it’s one of the central pillars of his presidential campaign.

While it hasn’t been reported by any major media outlets during this election cycle, the fact is that Sanders has used campaign funds to enrich members of his family in the past.

This report appeared in the Vermont Guardian in 2005:

    Nepotism crosses party lines WASHINGTON —The news that House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-TX, paid his wife and daughter $473,801 as campaign staff members was just the beginning. At least 38 other members of Congress, including Vermont Rep. Bernie Sanders, have paid spouses, children, or other relatives out of campaign funds, or have hired companies in which a family member had a financial interest, according to news reports.

    Since 2000, Sanders has used campaign donations to pay his wife and stepdaughter more than $150,000, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission.

    His wife Jane O’Meara Sanders received $91,020 for “consultation” and to negotiate the purchase of television and radio ads. Approximately $61,000 of that was “pass through” money used to pay for the ads, O’Meara Sanders told the Bennington Banner. She kept about $30,000 as pay for her services.

    Her daughter Carina Driscoll, Sanders’ stepdaughter, earned $65,002 from the Sanders campaign between 2000 and 2004, records show.

A similar report appeared in the Times Argus of Vermont:

    Sanders campaign paid family members

    MONTPELIER — Rep. Bernard Sanders’ wife Jane was paid about $30,000 from 2002 to 2004 for work on his campaigns, while his stepdaughter Carina Driscoll got about $65,000 over a five-year period ending last year, a Sanders aide said Wednesday.

The issue resurfaced in 2006 and was covered by Roll Call:

    GOP Hits Sanders on Wife’s Business

    Sanders, who is seeking the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Jim Jeffords (I-Vt.), is fighting back, saying that his likely Republican opponent, millionaire businessman Richard Tarrant, is lying.

    The Tarrant campaign has resurrected news stories revealing that Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders — a former professional media buyer — was paid $30,000 for working on Sanders’ 2002 and 2004 House campaigns and his step-daughter, Carina Driscoll, had been paid about $65,000 over a five-year period.

It’s astonishing that someone campaigning on the removal of big money in politics used campaign funds to pay large sums of money to members of his own family.

Clarence Saxby Chambliss is a traitor.

Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA):

Sen. Saxby Chambliss makes the “Ten Worst” list for what he actually did in 2012, but which was finally exposed in 2013. Just as with House Speaker Boehner, Chambliss’s misdeeds were revealed in Peter Schweizer’s book Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets. In fact, Chambliss is highlighted as one of the key abusers who used leadership PAC loopholes to convert campaign cash into lavish lifestyle upgrades for themselves and their family members.

As the New York Times reported:

The book details the extravagant expenses of Senator Saxby Chambliss, Republican of Georgia, for instance, whose leadership PAC spent $10,000 on golf at Pebble Beach, nearly $27,000 at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, and $107,752 at the exclusive Breakers resort in Palm Beach, Fla. The amount Mr. Chambliss spent at the Breakers in the 2012 election cycle, the book reports, is three times what the senator gave to the National Republican Senatorial Committee during the same period.

When Chambliss’s campaign was asked about the flagrantly lavish spending, they responded that all spending was reported according to the law. Though it may be legal, it is a clear abuse. And one has to wonder if the hardworking Georgians who sacrificed their scarce funds to support Chambliss’ re-election would be comfortable knowing their campaign contributions were used to support the “lifestyles of the rich and famous.”

Harry Mason Reid

Harry Mason Reid is a traitor.

A July 30, 2012, headline in the Las Vegas Review-Journal alerted Nevadans to Senator Harry Reid’s latest influence-peddling scandal – this one involving ENN Energy Group, a Chinese “green energy” client of the Nevada law firm of which Reid’s son, Rory, is a principal.

As Reuter’s reported on August 31, 2012, “Reid has been one of the project’s most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on behalf of the project in Nevada. His son, a lawyer with a prominent Las Vegas firm that is representing ENN, helped it locate a 9,000-acre (3,600-hectare) desert site that it is buying well below appraised value from Clark County, where Rory Reid formerly chaired the county commission.”

“Well below appraised value” is a considerable understatement. The deal Rory Reid put together for the firm his dad brought to town saw ENN purchase the site for just $4.5 million – a mere fraction of separate appraisals that valued the property at $29.6 million and $38.6 million. Even with all of that, however, the project has failed to move forward as rapidly as Harry and Rory Reid would like – for the simple reason that there is currently no market in Nevada for the green energy ENN claims it could produce.

But, of course, funneling money to the Reid family is nothing new for the Senate Majority Leader. As the Washington Post reported in a February 7, 2012, story titled “Public projects, private interests:”

In 2004 and 2005, the Senate majority leader secured $21.5 million to build a bridge over the Colorado River, linking the gambling resort town of Laughlin, Nev., with Bullhead City, Ariz. Reid owns 160 acres of undeveloped land in Bullhead City.

And according to Peter Schweizer, writing for Fox News on December 12, 2012, “Sen. Reid has sponsored at least $47 million in earmarks that directly benefitted organizations that one of his sons, Key Reid, [RW1] either lobbies for or is affiliated with.

Needless to say, the well-entrenched Senator Reid has been a repeat offender.

UPDATE: March 14, 2014

Judicial Watch Announces List of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2013.

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV):

Last year, Harry Reid made the Judicial Watch Ten Worst list for his influence-peddling scandal involving ENN Energy Group, a Chinese “green energy” company for which Reid “applied his political muscle” – and which just happened to be a major client of the Nevada law firm in which Reid’s son, Rory, is a principal.

This year Reid makes the Ten Worst list again. His “friends” list is examined by

On Monday, Harry Reid’s close friend and donor, Harvey Whittemore was sentenced to two years in prison for funneling more than $130,000 in illegal campaign funds to Sen. Harry Reid’s re-election committee in 2007 …

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Reid and Whittemore go way back; four of Reid’s sons were hired by the law firm in which Harvey Whittemore was a senior partner. Sen. Reid and Whittemore were involved in very big land deals, including federal legislation to help the development of Coyote Springs.

None of which is surprising, since Reid has long-since made funneling money to his family’s enterprises his stock-in-trade. According to Peter Schweizer, writing for Fox News, “Sen. Reid has sponsored at least $47 million in earmarks that directly benefitted organizations that one of his sons, Key Reid, [RW1] either lobbies for or is affiliated with.”

While not teaming up with family members to fleece taxpayers, Reid was teaming up with President Obama to use executive authority to skirt the law. Obama and Reid have long opposed a proposed nuclear waste dump in Yucca Mountain, Nevada, which has already cost U.S. taxpayers an astounding $15 billion, according to various federal audits. So, Obama simply instructed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission(NRC) to decline to conduct the statutorily mandated Yucca Mountain licensing process, essentially destroying the project.

In mid-August, a federal appellate court ruled that Obama “is simply flouting the law.” According to the court, “It is no overstatement to say that our constitutional system of separation of powers would be significantly altered if we were to allow executive and independent agencies to disregard federal law in the manner asserted in this case by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.”

Topping off the year, on November 21, 2013, – a day which should live in congressional infamy – Reid gutted the long-standing filibuster rules of the U.S. Senate in order to grease the path for Barack Obama’s court appointees. The new Reid rule prevents the minority party from filibustering any nominations other than nods to the Supreme Court. And to effect the change, Reid first triggered the “nuclear option,” which allows a change to Senate rules by majority vote (and which he had adamantly opposed in 2005, calling it “illegal” and “unAmerican”). Minority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Reid of attempting “break the rules of the Senate … in order to change the rules of the Senate.” Not surprisingly, as the Wall Street Journal editorialized, an ancillary benefit of the rule change is that it will get judges on the DC Court of Appeals who are more friendly to Reid’s agenda.

‘I’ve Never Seen Anything So Abhorrent in My Life’: Dana Perino names Harry Reid the most ‘Poisonous Figure’ in D.C.

Fox News host Dana Perino unloaded on Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) Tuesday, calling him a “destructive entity” in Washington, D.C.

Perino, who served as press secretary for President George W. Bush, was reacting to a jab Reid took at her former boss Monday.

“I think a lot of the dysfunction in Washington can be traced directly to his doorstep,” she continued. “I think it is very good for the country, for the world, and especially for the Democrats that Harry Reid is retiring. I’ve never seen anything so abhorrent in my life as Harry Reid.”

“He’s an absolutely poisonous figure in Washington, D.C. He’s been a disaster for this country,” Perino told host Hugh Hewitt.

“And he is an equal opportunity basher, right? He goes after everybody,” Perino added. “And I think it is so frankly disgusting, and I’m a pretty level-headed person. But that person, Harry Reid, has been the most destructive entity in Washington when it comes to stability. By far.”
