67 Reasons for Americans to Vote for Donald Trump!


1) Trump can’t be bought! He’s the ONLY Candidate who is paying for his own Campaign! He’s refused millions of dollars in donations, so he can’t be manipulated. ALL other Politicians running for President are funded by Campaign Contributors, Lobbyists, Special Interest Groups who will manipulate them when they get to the White House. Trump is the only Candidate NOT FOR SALE!

2 a) 99.9% of US Politicians are corrupt! Their lives are spent running for office or being in office. They don’t care about Americans. They only care about their own pocket books! USA has been taken over by Oligarchs! b) Trump is a very successful businessman, not a Politician! Until now that is. He’s the “People’s Politician”! Trump loves Americans! He is a TRUTHFUL Patriot who loves our country and wants to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain! This video explains Donald’s love for America!

3) TRUMP WILL WORK FOR FREE: As President, Trump said he will notaccept a salary for the position!

4) Trump studied Real Estate in college and graduated from Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics. He is brilliant with an IQ of 150-160: http://f-o-l.blogspot.com/2015/08/trump-prince-provided.html

5) Trump is a self-made Billionaire! His father was a self-made Millionaire from Queens, but Donald moved up to Manhattan when he made his own fortune! That small one million dollar loan turned into 10 billlion? Consider that the same as you getting a $100 loan and turning it into $1,000,000!
6) The problem with US politicians is they make BAD DEALS for America! (The bad Iran Deal is a perfect example!) Donald is a master Negotiator! He knows everything about how to make great deals! He is also an expert at turning BAD Contracts into good Contracts! Trump is the ONLY Candidate with this exceptional talent! That’s how he got rich. Trump will make America rich again by negotiating great deals, and RENEGOTIATING bad deals made by other Politicians!

7) NO JOBS in America: Unemployment is at a record-high due to companies leaving USA and setting up shop in foreign countries! Trump knows how to bring jobs back to America! Trump: “I will be the greatest Jobs President that God ever created!” Trump will make America rich again! Young people will have great job opportunities to pay off their Student Loans! There will be plenty of good jobs for everyone!

8) Trump has spent his life on the other side as a Political Donor. He donated to everybody ’cause he’s a successful businessman and he’s generous! Consequently, Trump knows the Political ropes! This knowledge and experience enables him to be a great president!

9) Trump does business with people around the globe, so he’s already used to working well with foreign leaders, politicians, and very important people. He is confident that he will be “great friends” with President Vladimir Putin and other world leaders in bringing peace between our nations!

10) President Putin praised Donald Trump, said he is “brilliant and talented” and would welcome him as President. Putin calls Trump the ‘absolute leader in the presidential race’. http://washex.am/1WovLi8

11) Trump says, Illegals are treated better than our Veterans! As President, he won’t let that happen any more. Our Veterans have been betrayed and discarded by the US gov’t! Many have died due to incompetent VA! Our military doesn’t have good equipment to protect our brave soldiers. Instead the good equipment is shipped to the Middle East and is now in the hands of ISIS! Trump will take GREAT care of Veterans! It’s a top priority on his To-do List! Trump will rebuild our military so strong that no country will even think of attacking us!

12) Obama said his biggest concern is “Climate Change”. I don’t agree! Trump’s biggest concern is “Nuclear Climate Change”, meaning NUCLEAR WAR! Trump wants to make sure Nuclear War never happens! (That’s my biggest concern too. We are headed there with current US warmongers presently in charge!) Trump will do everything he can to ensure Nuclear War never happens.

13) Trump really cares about women! He is going to make sure Women’s Health issues are taken care of. It’s another priority with him! Trump has many women in top Executive positions in his company. He’s hired women in Executive positions for 30+ years, even when it was unpopular, many of them getting higher salaries than men.

14) Trump will stop Illegal Immigration! He will build a wall on the Mexican Border. The 1st DAY IN OFFICE, Trump will start deporting illegal gang members who have saturated big inner cities with violent crimes! He will deport Illegals, and those of good character will be able to re-enter LEGALLY! Trump’s wall will have a big door for legal immigrants to come to America! Trump has thousands of Legal immigrants working for him now. As President, he will create jobs for millions of Americans! Visit this link to see Trump’s Immigration Reform Plan:https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/immigration-reform

15) Trump believes Vaccine overloads cause Autism! (So do I!) As president, he can work with the CDC to make vaccines safe for babies and children!
16) Trump will stop the corruption in the US Gov’t! There won’t be any more IRS targeting Conservatives! He will not turn his head from corruption and scandals, i.e., Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS, etc, that has been happening for many years now! Trump has vowed to go after Hillary for crimes if he is President!

17) Taxes: Trump knows all about Taxes! He spends a fortune having his taxes done. Trump’s Tax Plan simplifies the Tax System, taxes Hedge funds, lowers taxes for Middle Class and much more! Single persons making under $25,000 will pay “0”; Couples making under $50,00 will pay “0”! See Trump’s Tax Plan here:https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/tax-reform

18) Trump supports 2nd Amendment: He fully supports the right to bear arms as detailed on his Website. Trump will rescind Obama’s Executive Orders that chip away at the 2nd Amendment when he becomes President. Visit this link for details: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/second-amendment-rights

19) Trump does not believe in “Gun-free” zones. They are targets for terrorists. Some of our finest US military were killed in Gun-Free zones. Trump has vowed to end Gun-Free Zones the 1st day in Office as President.

20) Trump believes the US military should not be in Ukraine, and US should not be bombing Syria (when it interferes with Russia’s efforts). Trump believes other countries located in those proximities should deal with problems in the Middle East. He believes US are not the world’s police! I agree! Trump supports Vladimir Putin’s plans to destroy ISIS in Syria! Trump has vowed to stop ISIS. He always keeps his word.

21) Trump opposes US’ plans to bring 200,000 so-called ‘Refugees’ into the USA! He sees the majority of Refugees are very fit young men, with almost no women/children. The men have no ID and cannot be vetted! Trump asks why aren’t they fighting for their country? Trump raises the question that these men might be an ISIS Trojan Horse for America! (I agree!) Trump will NOT allow any Refugees into USA, but he supports the idea of working with other nations to create “Safe Zones” in Syria for Refugees to be able to stay in their own country, and he would do so in a very “humanitarian” way. Trump says, if he is President, he will send Refugees that Obama brings into USA, back! That’s great news!

22) There is a strong hatred of Americans by Muslims. Many murders have been committed by Islamic terrorists in the name of Allah. Trump wants to temporarily Ban Muslims from entering America, until such a time as we can figure out why they hate us, and what can be done to solve this problem. A List of Islamic Terror on American Soil: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/attacks/american-attacks.aspx

23) Here’s what Donald did to stop a Mosque from being built at Ground Zero in NY after 9/11:

24) Trump has written over a dozen books. “Trump: The Art of the Deal” is his 2nd favorite book! It was on the Best-Seller List for 51 weeks and sold over 1 million copies! (I read his book “Trump: How to Get Rich”. It was great!) If you want to know more about Trump, read his books! List of Trump’s books: http://www.amazon.com/Donald-Trump/e/B001H6O8M2

25) Trump is a Christian. He attends a Presbyterian Church. The Bible is his all-time favorite book. Donald has a collection of Bibles. People send him Bibles often, and he stores them all in a very special place.

26) Trump has always been a clean and sober guy: He has never had one drop of alcohol, never smoked, or used drugs! When his children were growing up, he imprinted in their minds never to use those vices. When giving advice to young people, he emphasizes abstinence from these vices!

27) Trump is a great father and husband. His children (adults) are a reflection of their father. They are also very successful and talented, and will be running his company if/when he gets to the White House! Trump has said, as president, he will be totally focused on making America great again! He feels that his company is irrelevant now, restoring America is his only focus!

28) Trump is in this Presidential Race for the long haul! His greatest desire is to become President so he can fix the problems in America and bring it to greatness again!

29) Trump cares about the poor. He cares about helping others. He gives a LOT of money to charities, but he rarely talks about it.

Some other causes Trump has given to

 

30) Trump cares about minorities. He believes many ethnic problems in USA will be resolve themselves when jobs are brought back, taxes are lowered, life-styles improve!

31) Mainstream Media has misreported Trump’s views on Hispanics. Trump is not racist. He has employed thousands of Hispanics who are in America legally! Trump wants to deport all Illegals, no matter what country they come from, but he will also give them a chance to return legally if they qualify. Trump knows many illegals that cross the Mexican border are criminals. These criminals are from many countries. That’s his biggest reason for building a wall. Trump wants to protect ALL Americans by securing the border. Crossing the US border without going through proper channels is ILLEGAL. It’s against the Law, but it hasn’t been enforced for too long! Trump will fix that.

32) Trump signed a Pledge to only run as a Republican in this Presidential Race.

33) Trump is not Politically Correct! I like that! PC is a form of censorship and manipulation that has gotten totally out of control in America! MSM tries to use that against him. MSM lies about Trump often! His supporters are onto that. We don’t fall for MSM Propaganda Bullshit!

34) Trump is no wimp! He will fight for Americans! He never attacks first! But when he’s attacked, he defends himself! I want a President who’s not a wimp, who stands up for me!

35) Trump is a Master Builder! He builds all sorts of things! He wants to fix America’s broken down bridges and roads. He wants to fix and build great things in America! Trump is the ONLY Candidate who can build a great Wall on the Mexican Border, fast and at low-cost!

36) DID YOU KNOW? Trump funded and renovated Wollman Rink in 3 months that was taking New York 6 years to fix! The Mayor wouldn’t approve his offer, so Trump said he would PAY for the renovations! Trump was approved! Read about it here:

People Are Seeing Their Trump Votes Being Switched To Rubio In Texas – Big Surprise, NOT?


People voting for Donald Trump in today’s Super Tuesday Texas Primary are seeing their ballots changed to show a vote for Marco Rubio.

Numerous callers flooded Austin-based radio station KLBJ this morning with reports of mistakes after they tried to vote for Trump.

AVOTEswitch

According to KLBJ, “computer freezeups” and other “glitches” are causing voting snafus at locations all around Travis County.

Trump supporters previously accused the Rubio campaign of stealing votes in Iowa after the Florida Senator achieved a surprise third place finish.

If Rubio fails to secure a strong finish in today’s primaries he could be forced to drop out of the race altogether.

Rubio’s Super Pac has poured $1.5 million of its budget into Texas in an effort to take delegates away from home state favorite Ted Cruz.

Marco Rubio: Poor Little Rich Boy Runs Into Real Estate Trouble – What A Tangled Web!


When it comes to sheer brazen corruption, chicanery and dishonesty there is one candidate who stands head and shoulders above everyone else and that is the right-wing Cuban-American and Tea Party darling Senator Marco Rubio of—naturally—the great State of Florida.

Mr. Rubio’s entire public image—the child of poor Cuban immigrants fleeing the repression of Castro’s Cuba who pulled himself up by his bootstraps and even now is a simple José Sixpack and family man—is less tethered to reality thanThe Wizard of Oz. For example, in his autobiography, An American Son: A Memoir, Mr. Rubio describes how he allegedly grew up poor and mowed the grass and walked dogs to make a bit of spare change. Technically this may be correct, but most poor kids don’t get paid by relatives heavily involved in narcotics trafficking and whose pets double as guard dogs for a drug cartel, as was the case with young Marco, a federal indictment shows. (See these articles for more on young Marco’s upbringing.)

But it was only after getting into politics that Mr. Rubio really started making big money—and he made it very quickly.

But it was only after getting into politics that Mr. Rubio really started making big money—and he made it very quickly, with the help of a few intimate companions—especially after taking over as Florida House majority leader and whip in early 2003. In fact, his income nearly tripled during the two years—from $122,000 to $330,000, based on financial disclosure forms—and spiked again in 2008, which may be tied to the fact that he became Florida House speaker in November 2006. 

Mr. Rubio was able to cash in in spectacular fashion because Florida’s preposterously flaccid political rules allow politicians to simultaneously hold public office and work as “consultants” to major law and lobbying firms—much like the arrangement that recently landed Sheldon Silver in prison in New York. That means that they technically can’t “lobby” but do it anyway and call it “ .” So, for example, when Mr. Rubio became House majority leader in 2003 he went to work for the powerhouse lobbying firm of Broad and Cassell, which is precisely the point where disclosure forms reveal a giant spike in his income.

 

Then, when Mr. Rubio stepped down from the House in 2008 (two years before he ran and won a U.S. Senate seat) he became partner in another law/lobbying firm—Florida Strategic Consultants—with the wife of a notoriously corrupt Florida politician and lobbyist named Esteban Bovo, sometimes known as “El Bobo.” (El Bobo’s wife, Vivian Bovo, had been Mr. Rubio’s top aide in the House.) While working at the firm, Mr. Rubio scored fat contracts from Miami Children’s Hospital and Jackson Memorial Hospital. Meanwhile, El Bobo was in position to appropriate money for the hospitals as chairman of a subcommittee of the Florida House Budget Committee. It was a win-win for Mr. Rubio and the Bovo clan.

Meanwhile, Mr. Rubio was making more money on two highly suspicious real estate deals. In the first, Mr. Rubio had a little help from Mark Cereceda, a chiropractor with a lengthy rap sheet. I should note here that after Dr. Cereceda lent a financial hand, Mr. Rubio flipped his position on a key issue of great import to the chiropractor.

Here are the key details: In 2003, Mr. Rubio bought his first house (at 6247 14th Street SW in West Miami) for $175,000, putting zero money down. He put it up for sale in 2005 but had difficulty selling it because of a weak local real estate market. But gracias a Dios, Dr. Cereceda’s mama, Nora Cereceda (now deceased), bought Mr. Rubio’s house in 2007 for $380,000 cash, netting Mr. Rubio a profit of about $205,000. Que suerte!

 

Shortly after Mr. Rubio sold the house, he did a 180-degree rotation on a key insurance bill for which Dr. Cereceda had been lobbying. Whereas he had previously been an outspoken opponent of the measure—indeed, he was described in one local press item at the time as “the main holdout”—he ended up voting for the legislation, which required Florida drivers to purchase $10,000 worth of personal injury Insurance.

Many of Dr. Cereceda’s clients were injured drivers who paid him with insurance money. And by the way, reported cases of personal injury fraud immediately soared in Florida after the measure passed.

Dr. Cereceda has a lengthy arrest record both prior to and after his mama bought Mr. Rubio’s house. In 2003, he was arrested on charges of Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon. Two years later, he was arrested for Felony Battery and also for Disorderly Conduct, and then in 2013 he was busted forrunning an illegal political contribution scheme by which he ordered his employees to contribute to political campaigns in their names and then he and his relatives reimbursed them. The doctor got off light. He was sentenced to house arrest and given probation.

Dr. Cereceda has been a big donor to Ana Maria Pando, a disgraced former Hialeah branch county court judge, who wrote a letter to state authorities—on official letterhead—asking that Dr. Cereceda’s company be reinstated after it got into some legal trouble. Pando was later convicted for taking a bribe from Dr. Cereceda, who ratted her out.

Now let’s turn to Mr. Rubio’s second surprisingly profitable real estate deal. It involves his current Miami-area residence, which he bought in December 2005 for $550,000. He put only 10 percent down on the house, and took out a $495,000 mortgage. Then, just 37 days later, he took out a $135,000 home equity loan (which he initially failed to disclose on his financial disclosure form) on the property. 
A book about Greer called The Chairman: The Rise and Betrayal of Jim Greer has some juicy anecdotes about Mr. Rubio and David Rivera, Mr. Rubio’s one-time best friend and roommate as well as a noted womanizer and former Florida State House member and federal congressman. (A number of other top officials at the U.S. Century Bank were major political supporters of Mr. Rubio’s.) Mr. Rubio bought the house from a shell company called Sanval Boats LLC and no one knows who controlled that entity and hence who he in fact bought it from. But we do know that Mr. Rubio got very generous terms to finance the house from Miami’s U.S. Century Bank, whose CEO was a former head of the Florida Republican Party named Jim Greer, who later went to jail for money laundering.

A passage from the book reads:

“There was an indication that Rubio had an affair,” said Greer. A woman who had worked in his legislative office when he was Speaker of the House abruptly left and got a job at Florida International University as a part-time professor. Emails she had sent him through her college account had become public record. Our opposition research specialist said the emails included things like, “I have to talk to you right now. I cant take this anymore. Why arent you returning my calls?” To an oppositional researcher the Crist campaign had hired, it appeared there had been a close relationship between the two and that Rubio had broken it off.”

In any event, Mr. Rubio’s $135,000 home equity loan was granted only because U.S. Century Bank mysteriously reappraised its worth upwards by about one-third, to $735,000, little more than a month after he purchased the property. “It looks a lot like somebody’s currying favor with an important political person,” one real estate analyst said of Mr. Rubio’s real estate dealings in a 2008 story that ran in a Miami newspaper. “People off the street don’t get this deal.”

It’s worth pointing out here that Miami-Dade County assessors put the market value of the house at $503,000 in 2006, some 50 percent less than US Century Bank’s appraisal at the same time. The house’s assessed value topped out the following year at $540,401 and last year county assessors estimated its worth at a mere $400,492, an increase from $391,443 in 2013.

 

David Rivera’s former girlfriend, Ana Alliegro, is currently under house arrest for her role in a complicated campaign finance/bribery scheme allegedly masterminded by Mr. Rivera, who helped her flee to Nicaragua before she was apprehended and turned over to U.S. authorities. Mr. Rivera is under investigation in the scheme, but the case has been stalled for months, infuriating Ms. Alliegro, who has publicly denounced Mr. Rivera and said she wants him to go to prison. I’m told by a few well-placed sources that Ms. Alliegro knows everything about Mr. Rubio, including the names of a number of his lady friends—more coming on that—but I was unable to reach her.

Mr. Rubio and David Rivera met in 1992, when both worked for the campaign of Florida Congressman Lincoln Díaz-Balart, and have been bosom buddies ever since. According to a Politico story, Mr. Rivera advised and stumped for Mr. Rubio in his first campaign for the state House in 2000. Mr. Rubio repaid the favor and helped Mr. Rivera win a House seat two years later. In 2006, Mr. Rivera played a key role in getting Mr. Rubio selected as the first Cuban-American speaker of the Florida House.

Anyway, Mr. Rivera is just a generally shady guy. (In 2012, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington named him one of the most corrupt members of the House.) He was investigated by Florida law enforcement authorities in 2004 over a $1 million contract he received to promote a ballot initiative pushed by a Florida gambling magnate named Alex Havenick. Mr. Havenick’s family has long thrived in Florida’s notoriously crooked dog track betting industry, whose roots trace back to Meyer Lanksy, Al Capone’s CFO. Mr. Rivera was not charged in the case.

There’s a lot more about all of this below and I should probably get on to the topic of Mr. Rubio’s lady friends, but first (and relatedly) I need to discuss a third house that Mr. Rubio owned, or co-owned anyway, with Mr. Rivera, the former House member and skirt chaser. This house is located in Tallahassee, the state capitol, where a lot of lobbyists work, including a few who are close friends of Mr. Rubio’s.

There is, for example, Bridget Nocco of Smith & Ballard (now known as Ballard Partners), a former top staffer in the Florida House who raised oodles of cash for Mr. Rubio when he served in the state congress and who is now “known nationally as a top-tier Republican fundraiser,” and who over the years has traveled with Mr. Rubio and gotten paid quite well from several of his dubious political action committees. (She did not return a phone call seeking comment.)

 

Mr. Rubio is also extraordinarily close to another lobbyist, but this one—Dana Hudson—is a vegetarian, according to her Twitter feed, lives in the Washington, D.C., area, and advocates on behalf of Homeland Security. Note here that Mr. Rubio does not serve on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, but the subject is dear to him, as one can immediately discern from his official website. Based on her tweets, the perky blonde Ms. Hudson is mad for Mr. Rubio, who she talks about obsessively, and is clearly a passionate supporter of his presidential campaign. For example, on January 6, when campaign consultant and “Jesus-follower” Gary Marx signed on with Mr. Rubio, Ms. Hudson tweeted, “@Garymarx very excited u joined #TeamMarco! Let’s do this! and elect @marcorubio #POTUS.” (Ms. Hudson did not return a message left at her office, nor did she reply to messages left via Twitter and Facebook. I should also note here that Ms. Alliegro, the former girlfriend of David Rivera, has suggested that Ms. Hudson traveled with her former boyfriend and knew him well.)

Anyway, let’s return now to the house in Tallahassee—at 1484 Bent Willow Drive in an area called Timber Lakes—that Mr. Rubio and Mr. Rivera co-owned and that Politico dubbed their “house of horrors.” When they bought it in 2005 for $135,000, they were repeatedly behind on the mortgage payments, it was almost foreclosed on at various points and they sold it last year for less than they paid for it. Also, I’m not sure exactly who officially hosted or attended but there were reportedly wild parties thrown at the house. The house sold in July for just $117,000.

Public records show that a woman named Tamara Hardy moved into the house in 2010 and lived there during the time Mr. Rubio and Mr. Rivera were trying to sell it. I have heard conflicting accounts about whether Ms. Hardy paid rent at the house or lived there because she was a friend of either Mr. Rubio or Mr. Rivera. I tried to reach Ms. Hardy for comment but was unsuccessful.

(I should also note that I sought comment from Mr. Rubio’s Senate office for this story and it directed me to his presidential campaign office. It failed to reply to a long list of questions for this story.)

I mentioned above a PAC and a bribe so let me turn to that story now, which actually involved a few of Mr. Rubio’s PACs and assorted businesses. Pay particular attention here to three key figures who were all intimate, longtime friends of Mr. Rubio’s:

Alexander Heckler, an attorney who in 2011 was found to have set up PACs that shuffled illegal straw donations to political candidates for his clients. Heckler, a lawyer and leading Florida lobbyist as well as a “Hillraiser,” the term for then-Senator Hillary Clinton’s top fundraisers, performed legal and accounting services for the treasurer of a Rubio-affiliated PAC, but only disclosed that several years afterwards, apparently to obscure his role. Heckler is also the stepson of Franklin Sands, who for many years—including the period when the story below took place—was the most powerful Democrat in the Florida House.

Joaquin Urquiola, the treasurer for the two Rubio-affiliated PACs who Heckler did work for, who at the same time was being questioned by federal regulators about his role at an Ecuadorian bank with Miami offices that was suspected of violating anti-money laundering laws by taking in cash from several South American drug cartels. Urquiola was an accountant and director of the bank, Pacific National Bank, and he and Pacific were in fact subsequently hit with fines for violating anti-money laundering laws and the Bank Secrecy Act. According to a 2011 story about the case in the South Florida Business Journal, the bank and its directors had previously been sanctioned for similar crimes and allowed “the violations to continue for years.”

The story begins in late 2002 when Jeanette Dousdebes, Mr. Rubio’s wife, incorporated a nonprofit PAC called Floridians for Conservative Leadership Committee (FCLC). She was the registered agent and only director for this short-lived entity, which the State of Florida dissolved three years later because it had failed to file an annual report. Urquiola, the executive at the bank that allowed a drug cartel to launder money, was the group’s treasurer, and Heckler quietly helped him out, according to information provided to me by the National Legal and Policy Center, a Virginia-based watchdog group that provided key research for this section of the story.

 

During its brief existence, FCLC raised $228,350, of which roughly $35,000 disappeared into thin air, according to the entity’s own tax returns. Its largest donor by far was a scandal-plagued PAC called OPH ($50,000) but Democratic super-lobbyist Ron Book also gave generously. Bridget Nocco, Mr. Rubio’s lobbyist pal, was paid nearly $26,000 by the PAC for salary and consulting services, according to its nonprofit tax filings with the IRS.

Shortly before its demise FCLC made two payments to a super PAC (which are known as 527s, based on the IRS rule that allows them) with a similar name, Floridians for Conservative Leadership in Government (FCLG). The latter was formed in 2004 with Marco Rubio as its president and registered agent, his wife as the VP and Urquiola as its treasurer.

In any event, the State of Florida dissolved Mr. Rubio’s 527 in 2006 because—you guessed it—it failed to file an annual report.

Many of the companies and individuals that donated to the two groups had major business interests before the Florida Legislature and the two entities had overlapping donors, such as super-lobbyist Mr. Book, and payees, such as Bridget Nocco, who netted $90,062 from the 527 for salary and consulting services.

Another notable recipient of cash from Mr. Rubio’s 527 was a company called Servicarga, which in 2004 received $3,500, which it billed for “courier services.” What’s curious here is that Mr. Rubio’s wife owned Servicarga and that, according to IRS returns and other documents, the company stopped operating in 1997.

Between October 24 and November 2 of 2006, Floridians for Real Family Values raised $244,000.

Mr. Rubio, Urquiola and Heckler were all players in another shady deal, this one involving a nonprofit PAC called Floridians for Real Family Values Inc. It was set up by Heckler in 2006—the year Mr. Rubio was sworn in as speaker of the Florida House.

For some reason Heckler failed to disclose to Florida election authorities that Urquiola was the PAC’s treasurer, but he was listed as filling that role in the group’s federal tax returns, which Heckler filed. What’s also odd is that the federal tax identification number Urquiola used for Floridians for Real Family Values’ tax return was actually the same used by the FCLG, the 527 that Mr. Rubio created and was president of, which suggests that the two entities were essentially identical.

Between October 24 and November 2 of 2006, Floridians for Real Family Values raised $244,000. Also in 2006, Urquiola incorporated a company called Florida Media Productions Group Inc., which operated out of the same address as the FCLG.

Florida Media Productions Group was established to work on behalf of political campaigns, but there’s not much evidence that the company did any work at all. It never bothered to set up a website nor did it ever create a single TV, print or online campaign ad. The only income it ever received—about $150,000—came from two Heckler’s controlled PACs, one being Floridians for Real Family Values.

All that money was paid for “consulting” services, though the payments were made long after the election year was over. Most of the money raised by Floridians for Real Family Values that didn’t go to Florida Media Productions Group—about $33,000—simply disappeared when the former was shut down.

Mr.Rubio would appear to be a terrible money manager. He’s made a ton of cash in politics (and spent piles of political money on what appear to be personal items, such as a family reunion he later claimed was charged to his campaign by mistake), as a “consultant,” and on two real estate deals, but records show he has serious cash flow problems.

All of this raises a lot of questions—to take an obvious one: Where does all of his money go? Whatever the answers, one thing is clear. Marco Rubio has some very, very curious and disturbing political bedfellows.

Some Things Every Voter Should Know About Ted Cruz, Before They Vote…


 

CRUZjerkcourt

In 1997, Michael Wayne Haley was arrested after stealing a calculator from Walmart. This was a crime that merited a maximum two-year prison term. But prosecutors incorrectly applied a habitual offender law. Neither the judge nor the defense lawyer caught the error and Haley was sentenced to 16 years.

Eventually, the mistake came to light and Haley tried to fix it. The State of Texas conceded that Haley’s criminal record made him ineligible for habitual offender treatment.

Ted Cruz was solicitor general of Texas at the time. Instead of just letting Haley go for time served, Cruz took the case to the Supreme Court to keep Haley in prison for the full 16 years on the grounds that he had waived the argument he now was making, having failed to raise the objection at trial or on direct appeal from his conviction and sentence. Using one of those lovely obscurities of the law, the State argued that Haley’s claim was “procedurally defaulted” which is another way of sticking your tongue out and screaming “Hah-hah, too late!”

“Is there some rule that you can’t confess error in your state?” Justice Anthony Kennedy asked. The federal district court rejected the State’s claim. It ruled that Haley’s claim fell within what is known as the “actual innocence” exception to the bar against raising defaulted claims.

Accordingly, the court ordered Texas to re-sentence Haley and he was released after six years, much to Cruz’s chagrin.

The case reveals something interesting about Cruz’s character. Ted Cruz is now running strongly among evangelical voters. But in his career and public presentation Cruz is a stranger to most of what would generally be considered the Christian virtues: humility, mercy, compassion and grace. Cruz’s behavior in the Haley case is almost the dictionary definition of pharisaism: an overzealous application of the letter of the law in a way that violates the spirit of the law, as well as fairness and mercy.

Traditionally, candidates who have attracted strong evangelical support have in part emphasized the need to lend a helping hand to the economically stressed and the least fortunate among us. Such candidates include George W. Bush, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

But Cruz’s speeches are marked by what you might call pagan brutalism. There is not a hint of compassion, gentleness and mercy. Instead, his speeches are marked by a long list of enemies, and vows to crush, shred, destroy, bomb them. When he is speaking in a church the contrast between the setting and the emotional tone he sets is jarring.

Cruz lays down an atmosphere of apocalyptic fear. America is heading off “the cliff to oblivion.” After one Democratic debate he said, “We’re seeing our freedoms taken away every day, and last night was an audition for who would wear the jackboot most vigorously.”

As the Republican strategist Curt Anderson observed in Politico, there’s no variation in Cruz’s rhetorical tone. As is the wont of inauthentic speakers, everything is described as a maximum existential threat.

Cruz manufactures an atmosphere of menace in which there is no room for compassion, for moderation, for anything but dismantling and counterattack. And that is what he offers. Cruz’s programmatic agenda, to the extent that it exists in his speeches, is to destroy things: destroy the I.R.S., crush the “jackals” of the E.P.A., end funding for Planned Parenthood, reverse Obama’s executive orders, make the desert glow in Syria, destroy the Iran nuclear accord.

Some of these positions I agree with, but the lack of any positive emphasis, any hint of reform conservatism, any aid for the working class, or even any humane gesture toward cooperation is striking.

Ted Cruz didn’t come up with this hard, combative and gladiatorial campaign approach in isolation. He’s always demonstrated a tendency to bend his position — whether immigration or trade — to what suits him politically. This approach works because in the wake of the Obergefell v. Hodges court decision on same-sex marriage, many evangelicals feel they are being turned into pariahs in their own nation.

Evangelicals and other conservatives have had their best influence on American politics when they have proceeded in a spirit of personalism — when they have answered hostility with service and emphasized the infinite dignity of each person. They have won elections as happy and hopeful warriors. Ted Cruz’s brutal, fear-driven, apocalypse-based approach is the antithesis of that.

Cruz’s last case as solicitor general to reach the Supreme Court has emerged as a campaign issue, as his defeat abruptly transformed from a loss to an embarrassment. Soon after the court ruled in Kennedy v. Louisiana in 2008 that the death penalty for raping a child was unconstitutional, a blogger pointed out that Congress allowed such a punishment for the same crime under military court-martial.

None of the briefs filed in the case mentioned it and neither did Cruz, who had argued in support of Louisiana on behalf of 10 states.

“Ted Cruz’s incompetent research led to the gutting of one of the toughest versions of Jessica’s Law in the nation,” Mark Miner, an adviser for Dewhurst, said last month.

Would hearing these stories undercut Cruz’s support among Republican primary voters? I really don’t know. I do know that a person who would fight such a case all the way to the Supreme Court is lacking something very basic, something important not only for Christians, but for any of us, and certainly for anyone seeking to become the most powerful individual in the world.

That thing is judgment.

The Trump Dream Team Candidates – This Could Be YUGE!


First, I believe that Trump is our generation’s Reagan. Reagan was also lightly regarded, laughed at by liberals, the media and the GOP establishment, considered unelectable and an intellectual lightweight, and someone whose finger could never be allowed near the nuclear button — until he won in two landslides and became a great president.

So here’s my advice for Trump moving forward.

It’s time for Donald Trump to act like Reagan, become presidential and unite the GOP.

It’s time to claim victory and start announcing the amazing “dream team” that this one-of-a-kind CEO will assemble to run the country and save the economy.

It’s time to praise the Republicans that Trump has been running against — and bring all their supporters into the Trump tent.

It’s time to show the country and the world how a billionaire CEO assembles a dream team.

It’s time to dazzle the other half of the electorate that doesn’t understand the amazing talents of Donald Trump.

If Trump shows he can be presidential and assemble an All-Star GOP Dream Team, I believe he is the next president of the United States. So here goes. Here’s a list of potential candidates that could dazzle and excite both the GOP base and the general electorate.

THE DONALD TRUMP DREAM TEAM:

Vice President: Marco Rubio.

Rubio brings youth, energy and great orator skills to the table. He can attract Latino voters, soften Trump’s harsh image with women and minorities, and campaign day and night in Florida- thereby guaranteeing victory in THE key state that any Republican Presidential candidate must win. Rubio has a fantastic conservative voting record- with the exception of one issue: immigration. But the Vice President has nothing to do with immigration. Only President Trump is in charge of immigration policy. Rubio is therefore quite an asset.

Health Czar/Surgeon General: Dr. Ben Carson.

I’d make Dr. Ben the second most important member of the Trump Dream Team. His only job 24/7/365 will be to repeal & replace ObamaCare- as only the world’s most brilliant surgeon can. Dr. Ben will bring hope to millions of middle class Americans and small business owners (job creators) who have been badly hurt by ObamaCare, but also faith and confidence that the new option will work for everyone.

Attorney General: Rudy Guliani

Homeland Security Chief: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (if he can block a bridge, he can also seal the border)

ICE (Border & Customs): Sheriff Joe Arpaio (known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”)

Secretary of State: Mike Huckabee (everyone likes Mike — he is the perfect person to travel the world making peace through strength)

National Security Adviser: General Jack Keane

Defense: Allen West

Treasury: Mitt Romney

Fed Chief: Ron Paul (wouldn’t it fun to torture the people at The Fed who have printed all that fake money and put us $19 trillion in debt)

Commerce: Carly Fiorina

Debt Czar: John Kasich (he was the architect the last time Congress balanced the budget)

Council of Economic Advisers- Jack Welch, Carl Icahn, Steve Wynn, Sheldon Adelson, Phil Ruffin, Herman Cain, Stephen Moore, Art Laffer, Mark Skousen (a brilliant economist and Professor of Economics & Finance at Chapman University, formerly Economics Professor at Columbia Business School, Founder of FreedomFest, where Trump gave his first major speech as presidential candidate)

Labor: Scott Walker (he fought the unions in Wisconsin and won against-all-odds)

Energy: Sarah Palin (who else? Drill baby, drill)

Education: Bobby Jindal

Small Business Administration: Wayne Allyn Root (OK, I’m biased, but wouldn’t it be nice for first time in history to have a real-life small businessman as the leader in charge of helping small business?)

UN Ambassador: Jeb Bush (yes, I gave him an important role)

Next Supreme Court Justice: Judge Andrew Napolitano 

White House Press Secretary: Les Roediger 🙂

*NOTE: I purposely left both Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in the Senate — where they can do the most good…leading the battle in Congress to back President Trump’s fight to cut taxes, spending and debt, roll back regulations, and repeal ObamaCare.

Wayne Allyn Root is a former Libertarian vice presidential nominee, now back to the GOP. Wayne’s latest book is “The Murder of the Middle Class” (Regenery 2014).  For more, visit his website: www.ROOTforAmerica.com. Follow him on Twitter@WayneRoot.
