As people flew down to the annual American Enterprise Institute (AEI) meeting on a private island off the coast of Georgia, it reminded me of a who’s who list of the rich and powerful. The leaders of the Republican party included Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and Karl Rove among others bellied up with the richest of the rich including Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Before continuing, I must ask is this entire meeting a slap in the face of every legal American in this country? Is this what our forefathers envisioned? The answer is a resounding no! If the Republican elite had any respect for the American voter and their populist choice, shouldn’t they be supporting Trump or possibly Cruz instead of hobnobbing with those with the largest pockets? It only proves who really has the ear of our elected Republicans in office. Clearly it is not the working man or woman of this great country.
Those at the AEI meeting unmistakably understand one simple fact—that Donald Trump or possibly is a viable threat to their borderless, cheap labor, big business, world economy agenda propagated by the minions of sheep they have financed to win seats in both the Legislative and Executive branches of our country. And who is the biggest, sellout sheep they are prodding along like a mindless puppet influenced by desires of power and money? It’s none other than our prior Tea Party Golden Boy Marco Rubio. Remember Rubio entered the Senate preaching the Tea Party doctrine which is as follows:
1. Illegal aliens are here illegally.
2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable.
3. A strong military is essential.
4. Special interests must be eliminated.
5. Gun ownership is sacred.
6. Government must be downsized.
7. The national budget must be balanced.
8. Deficit spending must end.
9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal.
10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must.
11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory.
12. Political offices must be available to average citizens.
13. Intrusive government must be stopped.
14. English as our core language is required.
15. Traditional family values are encouraged.
Despite The Tea Party fighting for Marco Rubio’s entrance into the Senate, Rubio has displayed where is his true allegiance lies—not to the Tea Party members or the working American citizen but instead to big business and the global elite. The disastrous Gang of Eight of bill, his no show vote for the 1.1 Trillion dollar Omibus bill which funded Obama’s agenda and big business interests, his support for illegal immigrant and unfettered immigration, and his denouncing public broadband while promoting the interests of AT&T all clearly show where his interests lie—BIG Business.
Unfortunate for the American citizen, Rubio continues to do the bidding of the financial elite. Just ask yourself, is there any reason he is still in the race? Real Clear Politics have his numbers almost 25 points below Trump in some Florida polls. Plus, the irony is, this is the only state left that he has any chance in winning. So why is he still running when there is absolutely no path for evident path for him to the White House and remaining in the race will only continue to make him look stupid?
The answer is that he is propped by the financial elite like a mindless puppet just waiting to do their bidding, no matter what the consequences. If Trump or Cruz do not achieve the magic 1237 delegates needed, the convention could become contested, whereby all the delegates become “free agents” able to vote for whomever they please. It is the same reason Kasich remains in the race. In a contested convention, outliers like Rubio, Kasich or even Romney could possibly be ushered in as the Republican nominee if the majority of delegated vote for them—despite popular support. If that happens, the only people who will win are the financial elite while leaving the vast majority of American voters disenfranchised, at the mercy of big business, and without any say in government.
