Marco Rubio is the favorite son of the Neocon political elite. He is nothing but a malleable puppet directed by the same cronies that controlled George W. Bush. Marco evinces no authenticity because he has none. He is merely an empty vessel to be filled by the basest, most corrupt and cynical big money thugs.
Who are the people that control Marco Rubio? One need to look no further than his campaign slogan “New American Century” to find the answer. A quick google search provides the first evidence of this connection. According to Wikipedia, “Project for a New American Century” was the name of a Neocon think thank.
The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was a neoconservativethink tank based in Washington, D.C. that focused on United Statesforeign policy. It was established as a non-profit educational organization in 1997, and founded by William Kristol and Robert Kagan. The PNAC’s stated goal was “to promote American global leadership.” The organization stated that “American leadership is good both for America and for the world,” and sought to build support for “a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity.”
This think tank was disbanded in 2006 and replaced in 2009 with the Foreign Policy Initiative founded again by the same neocons like Bill Kristol. These two organizations focus on role of the United States in world affairs. Neocons favor a U.S. policy of intervention in foreign countries and a perpetual state of war, much like we have now. For example, George W. Bush, who gave us wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was controlled by the same neocons that back Rubio.
It should come as no surprise that William Kristol, who publishes the Weekly Standard, is a big Marco Rubio fan. Bill Kristol’s hatred of Donald Trump is also well known. Of course he would love another power hungry Bush in office as well. In fact, Jeb! was part of PNAC. But even the neocons realize that voters have a severe case of Bush Fatigue and they need a fresh face, preferably a minority to exploit the demographic shift in the United States. This explains why Bush has spent so much time and money denigrating Marco Rubio; only one candidate can be the GOP Establishment (“GOPe”) and neocon darling. They are battling it out for the top spot on the neocon ticket. The winner gets the full backing of the open borders, war hawk, globalist, neocon machine. The loser will make a quick exit and go back to a cushy no-show job at a globalist think thank or corporation.
It appears that Marco Rubio is their first choice. A truly empty vessel with zero accomplishments, Rubio is a conduit through whom all of their plans and schemes can be fulfilled. Rubio is also a compromised candidate who can be easily controlled. Imagine the neocon gollums, meeting in their private estates, islands, boardrooms or incestuous clubs and discussing their perfect candidate: Young, Hispanic, immigrant family with no U.S. ties, no accomplishments, cute, able to parrot talking points effectively, easily controlled and a capable liar. Marco Rubio is all of these things and more. The perfect parrot, the GOPe Obama. Then the top it all off, we’ll dust off the old “New American Century” slogan to use for his campaign. Those stupid voters won’t even notice. Behind the scenes, the neocon cronies must laugh amongst themselves about the slogan; it’s their private little joke. The oligarchs love their private jokes. Imagine the brothers Randolph and Mortimer in Trading Places, plotting and scheming to run the world while recklessly destroying millions of lives.
Marco Rubio is reminiscent of Chauncey Gardner, the simpleton protagonist of Being There, the book by Jerzy Kosinski and related movie starring Peter Sellers. He’s an idiot being prepped for a role designed by our Founding Fathers for true leaders and patriots. Rubio falls far short of the mark.
Did you know Marco is a big fan of rap music? The political action committee supporting him is called “Baby Got PAC“. It’s named after the rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot’s hit “Baby Got Back”, a song about a woman’s giant posterior.
This PAC was created by mega donor John Jordan and infamous political consultant Rick Wilson. Their mantra is that Rubio is the most electable candidate. You’ve probably heard this canard many times. It’s not true of course, inexperienced Rubio would be gobbled up by the Clinton political machine. James Carville is licking his chops just thinking about facing Rubio in the general election. The only candidate they fear is Trump because nobody owns him. Even if Rubio lost to Hillary, Wilson, Jordan and the rest of the GOPe would be far happier than if Donald Trump was elected.
John Jordan, the multi-millionaire Jordan Winery owner and Republican donor, is formally backing Florida Sen. Marco Rubio with a new super PAC, named “Baby Got PAC,” he emailed Tuesday.
The group’s inaugural ad’s script seeks to mimic the dilemma facing many GOP voters, who are confounded by the massive field, tantalized by the outsiders’ appeal, but at the end of the day simply want to defeat Clinton next fall. The ad, airing initially on Fox Business Network before Tuesday’s debate, seeks to boost Rubio by declaring him the candidate most feared by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Jordan said the group will also promote the 60-second spot online.
Developed with GOP consultant Rick Wilson, the spot opens by highlighting voters’ frustration with Washington, followed by the narrator stating: “So when we started to make this ad, we had to decide which conservative candidate for president to support.”
Rubio is the ultimate Trojan Horse candidate. While his derivative slogan promises a fresh start for our country, it’s anything but that. It represents only the neocon return to power: Endless wars and reckless spending; unfettered immigration, sellout treaties, tax breaks and monopolies for the uber wealthy. Rubio would continue many of Obama’s disastrous policies and add trillions to our national debt. He would permit another 30-50 million immigrants to gain citizenship in the United States. He’s a neocon’s dream but a disaster for middle class Americans.
Marco Rubio is a neocon to the core. It’s no accident then, that candidate Rubio has come out in favor of aggressive, interventionist policies. He is regarded as the biggest war hawk in the United States Senate. He is also a well known backer of the Gang 8 Amnesty Bill, which passed the Senate but failed to pass the House of Representatives . Rubio wants women to register for the Selective Service aka military draft. How many American sons and daughters would die fighting in wars during a Rubio Administration?
The so called “Conservative” media, including Fox News has fully backed the Rubio rollout. His dismal third place Iowa finish was predictably sold as a victory by the GOPe. Endless stories of the Rubio Surge clogged Facebook and Twitter; Fox news ran countless stories backing Rubio. The establishment moved quickly to shift Rubio to the head of the line and most importantly, knock down Donald Trump. After his Iowa third place “victory” the Rubio endorsements came rolling in.
Just of a few of the many establishment publications supporting Rubio:
Iowa’s Des Moines Register.
Byron York, stands up against the insanity that is Rubio but Bill Kristol will have none of it. Bill claims Rubio is even more qualified than his former muppet, George W. Bush.
Bill Kristol is the publisher of the Weekly Standard. This is the neocon propagandist bible, which shills endlessly for GOPe controlled candidates. Once it became clear the Jeb Bush had no hope, their plan b empty vessel Marco Rubio was waiting. The Weekly Standard loses money every year. Who exactly supports them? It used to be Rupert Murdoch.
Red State’s Dan McLaughlin is a big Rubio guy. Red State is another so called Conservative publication that is really just a bunch of angry Trump hating neocons.
Conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh even likes Marco’s Conservative bona fides. You’re in Marco!
Jennifer Rubin, Self styled Conservative columnist for the Washington Post is another prolific Rubio supporter.
Fox News proclaimed Rubio’s lackluster 3rd place finish in Iowa as “Marcomentum”.
And NRO was on board with Marcomentum
Fox News is in the corner of Marco Amnesty Rubio as well.
Add former Democrat Charles Krauthammer to the list of Rubio backers. Surprise, another Fox News neocon supports Rubio.
Fox News’ focus group specialist, Frank Luntz was once paid a large fee by Marco Rubio. His focus group after the pre-Iowa Caucus Fox News debate declared Marco Rubio the big winner.
A Fox News executive in charge of the writing questions for their pre-Iowa Caucus debate has a daughter working on the Rubio campaign. Nothing to see here folks, keep moving along. Oh, didn’t you know Rubio is surging and his 3rd place finish in Iowa was tantamount to victory?
National Review loves them some Marco
The staged “Marcomentum” machine was running smoothly until the disastrous debate performance on February 6, 2016 in New Hampshire. Fellow Candidate and former prosecutor, Chris Christie exposed Rubio as a pre-programmed robot. Voters finally saw the true Rubio, a man of little accomplishment or authenticity. He was exposed for all to see as little but a parrot reciting memorized speeches. The perfect GOPe/neocon candidate was quickly revealed as a fraud. Even after Christie accused him, the Rubio Robot kept making the same canned speech, over and over.
But even before his bizarre meltdown on national television, former Rubio supporters were coming out to criticize Rubio for his deceit. Many of those who voted Rubio into his Florida Senate seat, are now disillusioned by his many lies and about faces. Put simply, Rubio serves only his puppet masters and not the people of Florida he supposedly represents. May former supporters feel betrayed. Phyllis Schlafly, a former Rubio backer, has written a damning 15 page memo which compares Rubio’s policies to those of Lindsay Graham. Ouch. Not very conservative.
Although the National Review (“NR”) recently published an anti-Rubio rant by Mark Krikorian, most of their staff still loves Marco. More importantly, they are charter members of Anyone But Trump club. The NR has not yet officially endorsed Rubio but likely will if he can save himself in New Hampshire. Will he declare victory after a 4th place “win” in New Hampshire?
The Post’s Jennifer Rubin still has Rubio’s back:
So apparently does Rush Limbaugh. On his Monday February 8, 2016 show, he did his best to rehabilitate Rubio, the GOPe’s last legitimate shot.
The conservative talk show host praised Rubio for repeatedly insisting that President Barack Obama is purposely out to ruin the country. Rubio faced heavy criticism both during and after the debate from opponent New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the media for repeating the same attack line four times.
“I don’t know how big a faux pas this was for Rubio,” Limbaugh said. “Clearly it was not a positive; clearly it was not his best. But I don’t think it ruined his chances and wiped him out like some in the media opined.”
Neocon controlled media such as Red State continues to cheerlead for Rubio. They are all in for their neocon parrot.
The average voter in [sic] not going to choose to vote against Rubio because he has internalized a series of pat answers. It isn’t going to happen. Because most of the GOP establishment focuses on superficialities, they think the GOP electorate… or America… is going to tire of hearing Obama blamed for his maladministration. They are wrong. It won’t matter. The very best Christie can hope for is to pull some votes from Bush or Kasich.
The comments to this Red State article brought out more reasoned thought than this quickly typed trashed deserved. As “bizmark” noted,
I don’t think the criticism is about his debate performance, per se. It’s just that the debate brought forward what many already know: Rubio is paper thin and not as principled as other candidates.
And Samsara points out rather adroitly, Rubio is the establishment candidate.
“What this represents is the GOP establishment’s Hail Mary to stop Marco Rubio.”
I disagree, Rubio is the GOP establishment’s Hail Mary to stop Trump and Cruz. No one has been a more ardent supporter of the GOP establishment than Jennifer Rubin at the Post. She is pounding the Rubio drum five times a day.
The GOPe will continue to support Rubio until a viable alternative is found. Let’s hope the people of New Hampshire come to their senses and put Rubio in his place. He’s a dangerous, controlled candidate and a foot soldier for big money donors who will not serve the American people. Let’s bury his campaign while we have a chance.
