So, who's a conservative?

So, who's a conservative?

Rubio-Ramos-640x480

The Martin 912 Tea Party Committee has researched all presidential primary candidates. We have looked behind the curtain to find out who their consultants, staffers and other associates are, plus their records. We used Open Secrets to track the candidates donors and bills they may have sponsored related to their donors. We read their books and the speeches they have given to try to find out who these candidates really are. We tried to expose the globalists, One World Government, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, crony capitalists, big government and pro-Common Core elite republican agenda as Breitbart's Steve Bannon likes to refer to them as. We are asking why would the we vote for a republican who wants to expand the Globalist's agenda?
The Breitbart Nationwide radio this morning exposed Senator Rubio's record. The Senator will not come on the National Breitbart Radio show or take any questions from Matt Boyle, Julia Hahn and other reporters for his plan, "A New American Economy" for A New American Century.
We now know that Mr. Rubio's agenda has promoted more H-1b visa's for his corporate donors like Disney, Facebook, Microsoft and others. Read Michele Malkin below.
Numbers USA is the leading Immigration watchdog in D.C. and has given Senator Rubio a score of D+.

Political analysis of the Las Vegas debate immigration dust-up between Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio is missing a key ingredient: the money factor. You can read the lips of the candidates till the cows come home. But you’ll get to the truth much faster when you learn where pro-amnesty power brokers have placed their bets and hitched their wagons. Rubio’s brazenly fraudulent campaign to paint Cruz as soft on illegal immigration is a flabbergasting attempt to distract from the Florida junior senator’s faithful allegiance to the open-borders donor class.

Here’s what you need to know: Facebook, Microsoft, and Silicon Valley back Marco Rubio. Mark Zuckerberg is a social-justice CEO who panders to Hispanics with his pro-amnesty, anti-deportation advocacy; Facebook is an H-1B-visa-dependent company working hard to obliterate hurdles to hiring an unlimited stream of cheap foreign tech workers. It’s no coincidence that Facebook’s lobbying outfit, FWD.us, was waging war on Senator Cruz online this week in parallel with Senator Rubio’s disingenuous onstage attack.


The D.C. front group, which Zuckerberg seeded in 2013 with nearly $40 million during the Gang of Eight fight, has consistently provided political protection for Rubio as he carried their legislative water.


FWD.us’s GOP subsidiary, “Americans for a Conservative Direction,” showered Rubio and pro-illegal-alien-amnesty Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) with millions of dollars in media ad buys. The group also funded a deceptive $150,000 ad campaign for immigration sellout Representative Renee Ellmers (R., N.C.), which falsely claimed that she opposed amnesty to help her fend off a primary challenge. In all, FWD.us spent an estimated $5 million on TV and radio spots in more than 100 GOP districts before the Senate passed the Gang of Eight bill in June 2013.


Zuckerberg personally donated to Rubio, as have pro-H-1B expansionist Silicon Valley CEOs from Oracle, Cisco, and Seagate. Microsoft, founded by leading H-1B/amnesty cheerleader Bill Gates, has been Rubio’s No. 2 corporate donor the past five years.


Paul Singer backs Marco Rubio. The hedge-fund billionaire announced his support for Rubio in October. Amnesty is and always has been a top agenda item for Singer, who, along with fellow hedge-fund billionaire George Soros, helped fund the National Immigration Forum. NIF propped up a faux-grassroots initiative of religious conservatives, dubbed the Evangelical Immigration Table, to lobby for the Gang of Eight.


NIF was founded by far-left attorney Rick Swartz, who opposes tracking/deporting visa overstayers and opposes employer sanctions against companies that violated immigration laws. Swartz also served as an adviser to Microsoft.


The Singer/Soros-funded NIF helped sabotage the Immigration Act of 1990, which was intended to impose modest restrictions on immigration, and turned it into “one of the most expansionist immigration bills ever passed,” as one expert put it. On Capitol Hill, Swartz worked closely with Cesar Conda, legislative director for immigration expansionist Senator Spencer Abraham (R., Mich.), and Paul Ryan, legislative director for Senator Sam Brownback (R., Kans.). Ryan, who is now GOP House speaker, is busy this holiday season fronting an omnibus bill that will open the floodgates to 250,000 unskilled foreign guest workers.


Side note: Beltway-establishment fixture Conda previously worked for the pro-amnesty U.S. Chamber of Commerce and mentored Ryan from the age of 19. Conda guided newbie Rubio as his Senate chief of staff from 2011 to 2014 and remains his powerful immigration Svengali behind closed doors.


Rove/Bush-tied front groups back Marco Rubio. The American Action Network is a Big Business GOP lobbying organization led by former senator Norm Coleman (R., Minn.), and co-founded with John McCain adviser/fundraiser Fred Malek. AAN shared its offices with amnesty peddler Karl Rove’s American Crossroads in D.C. AAN’s “action arm,” the American Action Forum, was founded in February 2010, and Jeb Bush sat on the AAF board. AAN proceeded to spend a whopping $25 million to attack conservatives who opposed amnesty.


In 2013, the group dumped more than $750,000 into primetime, Fox News Channel ad buys pushing the Gang of Eight immigration bill, including $100,000 in ads to support leading GOP voices for amnesty, including, you guessed it, Senator Marco Rubio.


Open-borders Democrats love Marco Rubio. As Senator Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.) brayed last month: Rubio “was not only totally committed, he was in that room with us. His fingerprints are all over” the Gang of Eight monstrosity. Indeed, Senators Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) and Rubio plotted strategy during early-morning workout sessions at the Senate gym.


Rubio hired Enrique Gonzalez, a Democratic donor and partner with the global-immigration-law firm, Fragomen Del Rey, to be his chief adviser on the bill. Gonzalez specializes in obtaining H-1B guest-worker visas (tripled in the Gang of Eight bill) and EB-5 visas for wealthy foreign investors. After the bill passed, Gonzalez returned to his law firm as managing partner of the Florida office, where he brags about his role as Rubio’s “special counsel” and “principal advisor/negotiator” — read: bill writer.


Bottom line?


Cruz kept his promise to voters. He voted against the Gang of Eight giveaway. Period. Rubio broke his promise: He paid lip service to border security and the American Dream, while scheming with Senators Schumer and Durbin on the 180,000-word, 1,200-page Christmas tree for Big Biz, Big Tech, and ethnic lobbyists.


Rubio didn’t just vote for the bill. He and his staff were integral to crafting it, shilling for it, and cashing in on the legislative boondoggle dubbed a “permanent pension plan for immigration lawyers.”


When you need the truth about which Beltway crapweasels are selling out America, always follow the money.

National Journal: Luntz Fails to Disclose Rubio Connection
Polit­ic­al junkies who fol­low Re­pub­lic­an mes­saging guru Frank Luntz know how he felt that Marco Ru­bio per­formed in the most re­cent GOP pres­id­en­tial de­bate—his tele­vised fo­cus group, his Twit­ter stream, and his in­ter­views left no doubt that he’s a Ru­bio fan.
What they prob­ably don’t know about is Luntz’s close re­la­tion­ship with Ru­bio over the years, and how Ru­bio paid Luntz’s firm a third of a mil­lion dol­lars to pro­duce and pro­mote a book that Ru­bio used to im­prove his statewide name re­cog­ni­tion in Flor­ida a dec­ade ago.
It’s not clear wheth­er Fox News was aware of that his­tory when it broad­cast Luntz quizz­ing fo­cus-group mem­bers fol­low­ing the de­bate, eli­cit­ing re­sponses such as “con­fid­ent,” “elo­quent,” elect­able,” and “pres­id­en­tial.” (But not fol­low­ing up with one dis­sid­ent who called Ru­bio an “at­tract­ive op­por­tun­ist.”)
Fox did not re­spond to a Na­tion­al Journ­al query. Nor did Luntz, a pop­u­lar con­sult­ant in Re­pub­lic­an circles whose cli­ents, ac­cord­ing to Fed­er­al Elec­tion Com­mis­sion re­cords, have in­cluded House Speak­er Paul Ry­an, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) of Geor­gia, and the Amer­ic­an Cross­roads su­per PAC in re­cent years.
Between May 2005 and Au­gust 2007, when Ru­bio was first speak­er-des­ig­nate and then speak­er of the House, the Re­pub­lic­an Party of Flor­ida paid Luntz’s con­sult­ing com­pan­ies a total of $345,451, ac­cord­ing to Flor­ida Di­vi­sion of Elec­tions fil­ings. That was the peri­od when Luntz helped Ru­bio pro­duce his “100 In­nov­at­ive Ideas” pro­ject, which included a book of policy pro­pos­als that Ru­bio pushed dur­ing his two years in charge of the state House.
[…]
In 2007, Luntz praised Ru­bio’s 100 Ideas pro­ject in a Wash­ing­ton Post op-ed, writ­ing that it brought for­ward “the prin­ciples of good gov­ern­ment and polit­ic­al ac­count­ab­il­ity.” That art­icle also failed to men­tion his role in the book’s pro­duc­tion and pro­mo­tion—a pro­ject that boos­ted Ru­bio’s name around the state, lay­ing the ground­work for his suc­cess­ful U.S. Sen­ate run in 2010.
Mike Fas­ano, a Re­pub­lic­an who served with Ru­bio in the state le­gis­lature, said he was aware that the party had paid for Luntz’s work, but had not known how much. “Oh, my Lord. I’m in the wrong business,” said Fas­ano, now the elec­ted tax col­lect­or of Pasco County. “When you have a guy like Frank who col­lects a pro-Marco group, of course they’re go­ing to say that Marco won.”
Luntz’s praise began not long after the de­bate began last Thursday. Just 12 minutes in, Luntz de­clared in a tweet: “Ex­cel­lent start for him to­night.” Halfway through, at 9:51 pm, Luntz tweeted: “This is @Mar­coR­u­bio’s best de­bate so far. He’s mak­ing people switch over to him.”
