Rubio Invokes Bible to
Defend Immigration Bill

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Michael Patrick Leahy

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/12/2013 12:15:36 PM

On Tuesday Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) cited "Biblical compassion" as a reason to support the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill. Rubio told CBN that he supports the bill because “[o]ur faith has always been about compassion and it compels you to do something. "Now, we have an obligation to be responsible to our country and not do anything that hurts America but also our faith calls us to compassion. If you took compassion or the principle of compassion out of the Bible, it would be in tatters because it’s all over the place.” Mark Tooley, President of the Institute

Comments:
Oh groan. He´s pulling out all the stops now. I´m sorry, I just don´t trust him anymore. Rush just made a great point. If the NSA is spying on everyone why can´t they find those 11 million illegals or whatever fictional number they use?? Good point.

They are all liars and phonies. They know that this bill is the worst disaster to freedom and prosperity in this country´s history.

I stand by my prediction that it will be a Bush-Rubio ticket in 2016. Whether it passes or not Rubio has burnished his bona fides with Hispanics.

Rubio is a dirtbag liar. Say anything, do anything, lie to anyone, to stay on the taxpayer gravy train.

I couldn´t count on the fingers of one had, the ones I would trust --R´s or D´s, to tell the truth if their cushy taxpayer perks were at stake, but they don´t have any trouble ruining the nation and cramming misery and poverty down the throats of the people they are elected to serve.

Rubio has lost all credibility.

If you trust that they will add boarder security (and many other steps lacking) "after" they pass this disaster...oh man, think again. These pols have never followed through on their promises. They´ve already flipped on their promise for boarder security first!

Historically, catering to the Latino vote (Mexican) has never succeeded for the GOP. Same with Black voters. In the last election Romney did not seek the conservative fly over country vote and he lost. The country, according to the polls, is more conservative than liberal.

Yeah, it´s not about rule of law anymore, it´s all about rule of feelings. There´s no defending him anymore...I suppose next he´ll wheel out some pitiful family from Mexico to plead his case. At least with Schumer, there was never any doubt that he´s a snake´s idea of a snake...Rubio is a smiling turncoat who urinates down your back and chides you for not agreeing that it´s raining. I want to know whose payroll he´s on now!!

Rubio is trying to solve a problem by getting work permits and e-verify for illegal immigrants. I guess he is just clinging to his Bible and trying to do what is right. The rest of you? I don´t think are interested in solving any problem or perhaps putting them in boxcars and sending them to the ovens?

Rubio´s compassion (such as it is) is misplaced. As an American citizen and elected representative of American citizens, his compassion should be for the overburdened American workers and taxpayers. He obviously doesn´t give a blank about the people whose interests he should be representing.

He is not being used, he is not naive; he is self-centered and egotistical, using the Word of God to justify his actions. Please go join the Democrats.

B) A product of the new normal, courtesy of domestic spying

2. Twisting the Bible in a convoluted manner to justify his wrong-headed thinking is bad. Very bad. How about some compassion for the LEGAL Americans who would like a job so they can pay their bills.

As a government official elected to serve the citizens of this country, Rubio has no right to damage this country by supporting amnesty.

His "biblical compassion" should be for the citizens of this country, not for illegal aliens. Their own countries of origin are good enough for them - millions still live enjoyable lives in Mexico and her neighbors. What is he talking about, really?

obey the laws of God and the Laws of the Land.. so let me explain..If the law of the land says... do not cross the border and enter a country illegally...then you you are breaking the law of that land..or Nation..ya know..its actually just like the law Mexico has...
and that the Mexican government ENFORCES.

I said it before, I´ll say it again. First and second generation Americans should step aside from the immigration matter. They are too emotionally involved to accomplish anything but more harm to this country. Even many third generation Americans can´t separate themselves from a sentimental attachment to the old country, wherever that may be. We certainly can´t shut them out. If they can´t see that they are too emotionally involved there is nothing we can do but stand aside while they mess it up.

Shame on you #10!!! You are out of bounds equating illegal immigration to incinerating Jews in the ovens!! Enough of that, already!! Nobody is calling for killing anyone.

We have immigration laws on the books and have for decades. They aren`t being enforced and neither will a new law proposed by the Gang of Eight. Million of new citizens who got here by breaking the law is wrong. Rewarding them with citizenship/welfare/education, etc. is even worse. No other nation on earth allows these types of cross border tactics and we shouldn`t either.

Rubio,

The Bible is very clear on many ideals and especially clear on boarders, who and who may not become a country´s citizen. Sorry Rube, listing to idiots talk from the pulpit who do not know or understand the Bible is just as bad as quoting from them.

Yes, the Republican Party will be out of office for a long time and deservedly so. Most posters here know I am not a liberal or progressive.

Before ambition and sucking up to the "so called" Republican party (current NRA that serves the liberal democratic northeast, Rubio was a hopeful. Now he´s just another self-serving politician so typical in today´s America. But he could have a future if he joined the communist democrat senators now betraying the country.

Immigration without education is terrible. Likewise children in America without American history education is just as bad.

Referencing the holocaust is such a simple-minded cheap shot.

True compassion would involve long-range views on an issue, not just short-sighted fixes that pander to a self-created victim class. Break down the U.S., overload it, and overwhelm it, and destroy it´s economy.
By destroying what´s left of the last refuge on earth who´s that going to help over the long run?

I think Rubio´s convinced his ´´good looks´´ will save him from any political disaster of his making.
Unfortunately, he´s increasingly round, going bald in all the wrong places, and just not aging all that well.
If he slims down, he´ll just start to resemble Joe Biden.

No government is the church. Nations get in trouble when they confuse the two. THAT is why the statists fail every time they attempt to dictate through governmental decrees.

Americans respect the U.S. Constitution which secures our freedom and our Rights as citizens and bestowed upon us by our Creator. We expect the duties of each of the three Branches of Government, ...and the boundaries defined therein, to be fulfilled by ethical representatives who keep their sworn oaths of office.

Christians worship the Holy God, not government, Marco. Government is not God and shouldn´t pretend to be.

As usual he talked fast but said nothing(kinda like liberals do). This guy thinks that we the people are stupid enough to believe his baloney. Anyone who takes his cues from dishrags like Schummer and McCain is NOT to be trusted.

Marco Rubio Shakes Up Staff And

Fox News Latino, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/14/2014 9:24:33 PM     Post Reply
Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

Survey shows ObamaCare sending

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

Hume said the reaction to his comments about Holder and President Barack Obama “benefitting enormously” because of their race was equal parts positive and negative, with about half of people on Twitter calling him “racist” because there were no African-Americans present for the debate on Fox News Sunday. “In other words, in order to discuss this, you have to have an African-American present,” Hume added. “But if you’re just white,

That would threaten the Internet’s independence as it would create an opportunity for regimes far less friendly to freedom to step in and gain power and influence. Well, this idea was so horrendous that even Bill Clinton, in addition to 35 Republican senators, spoke up and told the administration not to do it, as well as a great many other voices. Guess what.

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service is prepared to rewrite a proposed rule regulating the political activities of non-profit groups to address complaints from the right and left that it goes too far, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Monday. "In all likelihood we will re-propose a redefined rule and ask for more public comment," Koskinen told USA TODAY´s Capital Download. It´s a process he predicts will take "until the end of the year and beyond" to complete. The proposed regulation of groups known as 501(c)(4)s drew a record 150,000 comments before the deadline in late February. He said the new rule would

Google has acquired drone maker Titan Aerospace, the Wall Street Journal reports. Titan is a New Mexico-based company that makes high-flying solar powered drones. There´s no word on the price Google paid, but Facebook had been in talks to acquire the company earlier this year for a reported $60 million. Presumably, Google paid more than that to keep it away from Facebook. It sounds like Titan will work on a variety of projects for Google. Titan will be able to collect photos from around the planet from high up, which could help with Google Earth and Google Maps. It will also contribute to Google's Project Loon,

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

4 killed, at least 36 wounded in weekend shootings During a 36-hour period over the weekend of April 11, 35 people were shot in Chicago, causing four fatalities in a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Chicago Police responded to 26 separate shooting incidents over the weekend, but over half the shootings occurred in only a 12-hour period on Saturday. Several of the incidents featured multiple shootings with multiple victims. Many were gang related. Chicago´s murder rate had been down over last year´s rates and some have errantly pegged the drop in murder rates to the fact that

Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out last week on his treatment by Congress, with the implication that it may have to do with his race. However, Holder cleared up to The Huffington Post that his comments were not about race, they were meant to reflect the current level of partisan “incivility” in Washington. The media buzzed for days about whether Holder played the race card, but the attorney general explained HuffPost last Friday, “I didn’t say there was a racial component. I was very careful not to say that.” When he was talking about his unfair treatment to Al Sharpton‘s National Action

On Monday, the guests on MSNBC’s The Ed Show responded to the members of Fox News Sunday‘s panel, which largely dismissed Attorney General Eric Holder‘s assertion that his race motivates his critics. MSNBC host Ed Schultz and Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson attacked the panel for lacking diversity and said that some of its members, and Fox News analyst Brit Hume specifically, were guilty of “race-baiting.” “So, the color of your skin will determine if you get disrespect or not?” Schultz asked. Dyson agreed. “When I looked around that table and saw the enormous diversity of both skin, and

On 60 Minutes Sunday, CBS aired an interview with President Obama about his impression of Pope Francis after he met with the Pontiff at the Vatican in March. “He’s a wonderful man. He projects the kind of humility and kindness that is consistent with my understanding, at least, of Jesus’ teachings,” Obama explained. Obama also praised the Pope’s simplicity and spirituality. “I suspect, my sense is, is that he’s a little bit uncomfortable with all the trappings of being Pope,” he said. “That’s not his style, and that is part of why I think he has been so embraced around

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
