Marco Rubio:
I’m Ready to Run for President

Time Magazine, by Nolan Feeney

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/11/2014 12:07:20 PM

Marco Rubio says he is ready to become the President of the United States. “I think that’s true for multiple other people that would want to run,” Florida’s junior senator told ABC’s Jonathan Karl on The Week Sunday. “I mean, I’ll be 43 this month, but the other thing that perhaps people don’t realize, I’ve served now in public office for the better part of 14 years. Most importantly, I think a president has to have a clear vision of where the country needs to go and clear ideas about how to get it there, and I think we’re very blessed in our party to have a number of people that fit that criteria.” Rubio was once considered to be a frontrunner

Comments:
Yeah. A 43-year-old junior senator, who comes from a state (Florida) with another "hopeful" (Bush) like himself. Already shown many here that he´s a RINO, so support may be limited to those that think an "R" is all that´s required in decision making on a political level.

I think he needs a bit more time to develop before he is ready to run.

No, you are not ready!!!! Instead of accomplishing something (other than speeches) for the United States while in the position you are currently in; you only wish to further your own political career. We have too many pols like that as it is and is a primary reason why the US is in the shape it is in now.

I agree with ZurichMike (Reply 15. From everything I´ve read, neither Rubio nor Cruz qualify to run. This debate needs to be settled before either go further. I thought Cruz might have taken steps to settle the issue but am beginning to think his desire to run take priority - as it obviously does with Rubio.

The fact Rubio thinks he´s ready to run doesn´t mean he´s ready to be president. Let´s hope if he really does decide to run, Republicans send him a clear message he need more experience -- and needs to have a ruling about his eligibility before he wastes everyone´s time.

Marco may be ready, but as above posts indicate: many of us are not yet ready for him to run. He still has a bit of image repair to do following his alignment with the Senate immigration gang of eight. Maybe by 2020 if he can stay on our side of the political "divide".

So maybe someone can shed some light on something for me: Where´s the line between someone staying in office "too long" and someone "not having enough experience"? It seems some are shouting that we need new blood every election (as in, "vote out the incumbent"), and yet when it comes to the president nobody (except someone with years of experience . . . . . somewhere) is qualified to run.

I´m beginning to see why we conservatives can´t win anything--we don´t even know what we want!

With that said, as far as I´m concerned, Mr. Flip-Flop can sit out this next run--and every run after that, too!

I was disappointed in Marco Rubio´s stance on immigration. I was also disappointed that he had placed so much trust in certain Senators. However, I am sure he has learned a valuable lesson and will be wiser when this type of situation comes along again. That being said, I still like Rubio. I like who he is. His desires for Americans and America are conservative and traditional. He absolutely believes in our Constitution. Politically, he has served in local, state and now national government. I like the fact that he comes from a family that has worked hard for everything they have. He gets it. I love the fact that he is not egotistical. He is intelligent, extremely well spoken and knowledgeable. On most issues I know where he stands and can pretty well count on him to espouse conservative principles and be proud doing so. I do not think he is a child. As a matter of fact lots of those I consider being Presidential worthy, like Cruz (my choice for President), Paul, Walker are all in their 40´s.What any one of them lack in experience or knowledge can be helped by surrounding themselves with worthy aides and cabinet members. What sets these guys apart is their fearlessness and willingness to pick up the gauntlet and fight for America. They are young and that´s a good thing. They´ll need all the energy and stamina they can muster to fight those willing to oversee the decline of America. I am not willing to throw aside a very worthy candidate because of one issue. There are too few Conservatives willing to run for office. I´m grateful to them for their willingness to put themselves and of course their families out there for the benefit of their country and its future citizens.

Opposition research----first thing they come up is that Rubio abused the Credit Card issued for legislative use. Got caught but don´t know if he has reimbursed the personal charges. That is what one gets in Rubio. Just shortly after he hit the scene in 2010, he said he needed to relocate family to the DC area-------well, others said it was financial problems with his mortgage. He probably has his eyeballs set on the same type of spend, spend, spend other peoples´ money like obama.

Thank you #24, I agree whole heartedly. As far as Rubio I´d add that he´s developed a reputation as a proponent of a strong American foreign policy. He´s Israel´s favorite American politician. Our next President inherits a mess abroad. Rubio has worked hard to position himself as a man who can take charge on the world stage.

Hagel quietly notifies Congress

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel quietly notified Congress last week that the military is set to transfer six Guantanamo Bay prisoners to Uruguay as soon as next month, The New York Times revealed Wednesday. The deal has been waiting for Mr. Hagel’s approval since March, but stalled after the Obama administration received a wave of backlash for releasing five Taliban detainees to Qatar in exchange for the release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The administration did not give Congress 30-days notice in that deal, but argued it was still legal because any delay could have risked Sgt. Bergdahl’s life.

The energy-rich country on the eastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula announced plans Wednesday to send the first unmanned Arab spaceship to Mars in 2021. The ruler of the UAE´s emirate of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said the mission will prove the Arab world is still capable of delivering scientific contributions to humanity, despite the many conflicts across the Middle East.

California Death Penalty
Unconstitutional, Federal Judge Says

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/16/2014 5:07:45 PM     Post Reply
A federal judge in Southern California ruled Wednesday that California’s death penalty was unconstitutional. The “dysfunctional administration of California’s death penalty system,” wrote Judge Cormac J. Carney of United States District Court, has led to “inordinate and unpredictable” delays in the execution of inmates. The delays, the judge wrote, means that sentences are carried out against only “a trivial few of those sentenced to death.” In essence, he wrote, sentences by juries have been transformed to “life in prison, with the remote possibility of death.” In making his ruling, Judge Carney vacated the death sentence of

Shannon Guess Richardson, 36, was also ordered to pay $367,000 restitution as part of a plea bargain for pleading guilty in December to one count of developing, producing, possessing and transferring a biological agent for use as a weapon. She bought the materials — castor bean seeds and lye — online. The FBI arrested her in June 2013 after she was indicted by a federal grand jury.

Israel agreed Wednesday to halt its airstrikes on Gaza for five hours in order to allow humanitarian aid, following a request from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The military said in a statement Wednesday that it would hold its fire for five hours starting at 10:00 a.m. local time on Thursday. It warns however that it will retaliate "firmly and decisively" if Hamas or other militant groups launch attacks on Israel during that time. The cease-fire request came from U.N.

Washington - The White House is defying a congressional subpoena by keeping a top political aide to President Barack Obama from testifying at a hearing Wednesday. The White House is arguing that Obama adviser David Simas is immune from subpoena by the House Oversight Committee in its investigation into the political office that he directs. White House counsel Neil Eggleston says in a letter to Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa that the Simas subpoena threatens the constitutional separation of powers. White House lawyers spent an hour and 15 minutes Tuesday briefing the committee´s staff behind closed doors on the political office´s

So far, 32 of those busted have been convicted and the other cases are pending. Two cases of child porn allegedly happened on Disney property.

Lawmakers pushed back Tuesday against the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to garnish the paychecks of accused polluters, advancing a bill that would block the new authority. The House Committee on Appropriations approved the countermeasure as a policy rider on a $30.2 billion spending bill for natural resources agencies, including the EPA, the Interior Department and U.S. Forest Service. The amendment by Rep. Tom Graves, Georgia Republican, passed the committee in a voice vote, signaling an absence of strong opposition, if not support for prohibiting the EPA from claiming authority to garnish wages to collect fines

(Snip) But Carr was convinced his primary challenge to Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander was primed to catch fire. The spark may have finally come last month, when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was bounced in a GOP primary by an unknown challenger named Dave Brat. The black swan upset buoyed Carr’s campaign, opening a fresh spigot of cash and prompting comparisons to the Virginia economics professor who was written off by everyone until he toppled Cantor.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks
