That's one way to shut him down

Apparently Marco Rubio didn't know when to quit, so the GOPe decided to call time on his campaign in order to clear the way for Ted Cruz in Florida:
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has carried on at least two extramarital affairs since he entered politics.

GotNews.com can confirm through lobbyist sources in DC and Tallahassee that at least one DC-based lobbyist has had an extramarital affair with the first-term U.S. Senator. Still another Florida-based lobbyist has been IDed as carrying on an affair.

The first woman was Amber Stoner, a 36-year-old woman who worked for Rubio when he was head of the Florida Republican Party.... The second woman is Dana Hudson, a blonde lobbyist based in the Beltway.
If there are similar revelations about John Kasich, or if he quits the race before Friday, that should suffice to confirm that the GOPe has been doing the math and they know they have to stop Trump in Florida and Ohio or they're done.

Assuming this is indeed her, doesn't Miss Hudson look rather like the taller half of Garfunkel and Oates?

Let that be a lesson to all you young would-be politicians out there. When the elders of the party take you out for dinner, and suggest that maybe it is time for you to consider getting out of the race for the good of the party, that's just their way of being polite. What they really mean is that it is time to get out of the race... if you're smart enough know what is good for you.

Seriously, does no one watch The Godfather anymore?

The rumor was that if Rubio didn't win Florida, THEN he was getting the boot.

This may be preparation for said boot, but I'm not sure anymore.

At the very least I would've thought the establishment would've been under far more pressure before they ever considered giving their support to Cruz. Not sure if something's changed, or if the GOPe is preparing for Mittens to enter the race like the original rumor had.

It's looking that way. Cruz is hated by Congress, there's no denying that, but the GOPe apparently sees him as someone they can get under their control more easily than Trump.

Maybe Rubio genuinely doesn't care what hole he sticks it in and is just an over sexed deviant. 4 kids always seemed like a lot for a closeted homosexual.

The double standard would be a bit rich though, seeing as how Trump is a confirmed adulterer and yet these rooms will cost him votes some of which Donald will gain.

"When Hillary Clinton spoke to Goldman Sachs executives and technology titans at a summit in Arizona in October of 2013, she spoke glowingly of the work the bank was doing raising capital and helping create jobs, according to people who saw her remarks."

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2015/03/23/heidi-cruz-presidential-race-profile/70329060/

"Heidi Cruz is a managing director at Goldman Sachs, the investment firm she joined in 2005. She runs the Houston wealth management unit, which handles portfolios for clients with an average net worth of $40 million."

It's not enough they have the New York Fed as a captive bank, and, thereby, the head of the Federal Reserve. Now they must be worried that the president of the United States could conceivably be somewhat independent, so best to make sure they own both sides.

I still respect Boehner for that stand he took when McCain/GWB/Obama/Bernanke/McConnell/Pelosi/Reid all stood against him and told him to do the Goldman Sachs' "God's work" and sell us further down the river. For about 12 hours we had won something.

Based on the looks of the girl, this scandal puts Rubio into a position where he can catapult himself to near Trump alphatude with agree & amplify game.

For a fake adultery story, you want as homely a girl as possible. Lower SMV imbues the man with less alpha cred and encourages the girl to fight harder for attention: "See, he stuck it in me, I really AM attractive, world!"

Based on that, this one seems like a physical or emotional affair that was planned in advance by the GOPe.

I don't believe this came from the GOP.

The writer, Charles C Johnson has previously threatened a former Romney GOP strategist with revealing private off the record conversations. He also accused a higher up on former majority leader Eric Cantor's staff of killing the Mississippi tea party leader. And is a self described radical and revolutionary.

Johnson has also been rather ostracized in being banned by both twitter and facebook. Former people he has worked with such as Tucker Carlson don't readily acknowledge his current writings. This doesn't come off as a guy GOP trustworthy or friendly enough to leak this story to.

Besides, the Rubio/Stoner connection has been out on the net since 2010. There was even an investigation of Rubio using campaign money for private use at that time. And wasn't Jeb's team caught circulating this same type stuff just a few months back?

Seems like the GOP could easily get that story kicked back up into the mainstream, if they wanted to, via other safer more high profile connections.

Godfather part 2 is awesome. It should be against the law not to have seen it. It has Robert De Niro AND Al Pacino in it at their prime, years before "Heat", and it's a much better film than "Heat", which was itself bloody good.

Watch it. Watch it now!

Part 3 is a bit meh. It's not as bad as people make out, but has little of the magic of the previous two.

That's because of the fairly mediocre script and unengaging leads - it's mainly the story of Andy Garcia and Sofia Coppola's characters. And they're as exciting as milk.

@70 Are you crazy? Godfather I is a complete film with a full character arc and an outstanding climax. Godfather II bookends I with the history and Michael's rise following his decision. What's brilliant about both movies is that they are both self-contained.

What makes III so bad is that it isn't self-contained (it could not exist without viewer knowledge from the first two movies) and instead of being about Michael's initiation into the Family (I) and Michael's ruthless rise and rejection of his former principles (II), III is about Michael being sort of sad about being Catholic.

Now, the one thing III hints at which would have been a good movie was that Michael realizes in it that he is a denizen of Hell, that his virtues have propelled him to eternal damnation, that becoming the Lord of Death sticks you with a lot of corpses, including your own. It wasn't until the last episode of the Sopranos that anyone got that mob story right.

Let that be a lesson to all you young would-be politicians out there. When the elders of the party take you out for dinner, and suggest that maybe it is time for you to consider getting out of the race for the good of the party, that's just their way of being polite. What they really mean is that it is time to get out of the race... if you're smart enough know what is good for you.

IMO, we're seeing the GOP make the ironic choice between, what they see as the lesser of two evils. Cruz has held his own against Trump better than the others, so while they hate him, he's better than the alternative...Trump. I think the GOP has finally seen that they have awaken the sleeping giant (Americans), and the giant is pissed off, the good old days are over, the establishment will have to change. The Gop may see Cruz as a uncomfortable but necessary change if it wants to survive, and they may see Trump as the end of the GOP, should he get the nomination.

OpenID luciussomesuch March 06, 2016 8:28 PM  

"The Godfather Part III" is terrific-- shot like a Tintoretto, with a magisterial final set-piece that's a directorial tour de force.

Some of Sofia's line readings fall horribly flat; but some (like her awkward delivery of the check to the Archbishop) are remarkably on-point. Pacino, Garcia, Wallach, Shire, and many of the supporting cast are excellent. Perhaps with more time to work on the script the story might enjoy more clarity, but frankly Parts I and II also rely upon a good deal of sleight-of-hand and tell-don't-show ("It was Barzini all along"; who opened the curtains/killed the gunmen?; who ordered the hit on Pentangeli? etc.).

Above all, the characterization of Michael as a fake-it-till-you-make-it good citizen and Christian is fascinating: he is the capitalist-by-day he dreamed of being, a philanthropist, avuncular, even outgoing, yet eat up within by guilt and shame, yet still defying Providence with his ambition and a penchant for violence he can't really deny.

Right back to the Bush establishment like I said. Welcome back to team Bush, Teddy.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/03/03/former-bush-finance-team-members-join-cruz/

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says that eight former national finance committee members for Jeb Bush’s failed presidential campaign have joined Cruz’s finance committee.

“I am excited to welcome this outstanding new group to our finance team,” said Cruz in a statement released Thursday. “They arrive at a pivotal time for our campaign, as the field is winnowing down to a two-person race. I am honored to have such an impressive committee. It is yet another sign that conservatives are coalescing behind our campaign.”

Blogger Noah B March 06, 2016 8:33 PM  

I can't quite tell what Cruz is playing at. His amendment to the Gang of Eight bill could be looked at as an act of sabotage -- or a way to soften it so that it passed. Same goes for TPP.

But what does bother me about him, and where he does appear to be doing the establishment bidding, is with his ritual obsequiousness to Israel and his antagonism of Russia. And there's no denying that Cruz has supported vast expansion of legal immigration. I find it difficult to see how any of that is in America's best interests. Yet Cruz has fought as hard as anyone to preserve the right to bear arms, and he made the only effort to stop Obamacare that was arguably genuine.

In short, I believe Cruz, like Trump, is something of a wild card in the sense that we don't know exactly what he would do. And it's amazing to see 80% of the Republican vote going to wild card candidates.

One thing to keep in mind about Cruz is that he has a made a career out of fighting for smaller government and actually is one of the only national Republicans who can answer "I did X, Y and Z meaningful things to either stop the growth in some areas or roll it back." Everyone else can say they gave a tax break or some other stupid little favor. Few can actually say something like they played a role in ripping the carpet out from under the gun grabbers across the entire country.

Yes, Cruz is imperfect. However, Cruz has made a career out of pursuing his ideology. Trump has not. With Cruz, you know that you're going to get a guy who is never going to look the American people in the eye and say he gave up without a fight to build the wall or add more border patrol agents.

A lot of the people attacking Cruz here and elsewhere are forgetting that one of the reasons for his infamy is that he played chicken with the entire DNC/RNC establishment on the debt. The man is clearly not afraid to stand his ground and threaten to pull a Samson on the Philistines if they force his hand.

Anonymous Mike March 06, 2016 8:47 PM  

FWIW, I am also a nationalist, but that is precisely why I don't support Trump as a primary guy. I don't trust him. Going from a mainstream NYC liberal to a nationalist populist in a few years is a radical change. Too radical to be taken at face value without convincing evidence.

The fact is that Cruz will not fix all of our problems, but he will move the Overton Window in our favor and buy us time. I am far more willing to support a 50%-66% solution from a man who has a good track record of principle than a man who promises us nearly everything but has been about as reliable as a slut with schizophrenia.

No -- I commented on this earlier. Cruz stated that his Gang of Eight bill amendment was an effort to stop illegals from becoming citizens.

On the surface, there's no doubt that's true. There's also no doubt that a future Congress could have repealed Cruz' amendment and granted full citizenship to this new class of permanent residents.

So, was Cruz' intent to make sure that illegals never gained full citizenship? Or was it to make the Gang of Eight bill more politically acceptable, and provide a pathway to citizenship for illegals? Based on what I know, both are possibilities.

Anonymous Andrew E. March 06, 2016 9:20 PM  

I don't understand the talk about Cruz stopping Gang of 8. All he tried to do, if you believe him, was strip out the pathway to citizenship. The bill passed the Senate and was only killed after Brat primaried Cantor two days before the bill was scheduled pass in the House.

Besides, the pathway to citizenship was a canard. Once the illegals were granted legal status it would have taken maybe two years of "second class citizen" rhetoric from the Left to get the political momentum to grant citizenship to these people. Bye bye America at that point. Cruz should have known this. It's why I don't take him seriously.

The only problem that I foresee is that Cruz is going to get torn to shreds in the general election. People know very little about Cruz, as compared to Trump, and the wealth of soundbites out there is likely to bury Cruz. If Cruz is to be the nominee, he better hope for Sanders - I see that as the only candidate he has a chance at beating. I wish it weren't the case, but that's the current state of the things. If Hillary is the nominee, she will likely beat Cruz, and given her legal predicament (and her health) whoever she picks as VP will likely finish her term. If Trump picked someone like Gingrich in the next few weeks (would he?), I suspect things might shift in his favor in the primaries, and won't do much to hurt the ticket in the general election.

Well it's also possible that the GOPe is merely torn between Trump and Cruz and all of this back and forth is nothing more than them engaging in a winnowing effort to see who is the stronger candidate.

There's a false equivalence here, Nate. It's not the same for the elected to push what they want against the wishes of the electors, with the electors pushing what they want against the wishes of the elected. The latter is democracy, the former oligarchy.

@Vox Day:
Ok, but which way are the GOP elders trying to push this?
The previous "Chosen ones" for POTUS look like they were chosen to lose. McCain was dumb enough to rely on moderate support that wasn't there. Romney was told to not attack anything about Obama. Sounds like they both were sent to lose on purpose.
Maybe the DNC delved into the NSA files and pulled out some plumbs to "influence" the GOP heads, and they are actually Trying to lose. I mean, if Trump gets elected, he could seriously screw things up from inexperience (as the fictional POTUS did in the the movie "Dead Zone")and screw the reputation of the GOP for a generation.
OTOH, it is conceivable that on the fist day in the Oval Office, the DNC heads will have a meeting with him that will go something like this:
DNC: "Well, congratulations President Trump, your got yourself elected. You've got four years - maybe eight - to do whatever you want. But then? It's back to public citizen, who will want to build things again. And if you ever want to get a building permit, a driver's license or even a dog license, you will NOT get in the way of anything the Democratic Party wants to do. Do we have an understanding Mr. President?"

I understand Trump is riding a social current (of public frustration with politicians) that can take him to the White House, and has promised to change things. But can a businessman, who is used to firing those who don't do what he says, deal with the entrenched politicians of D.C.? Or will he be another Proconsul Crassus? Is not possible that this great negotiator negotiate away too much?
IOW, Have you considered how things might go wrong with Trump in the White House?

Blogger Noah B March 06, 2016 10:24 PM  

A stealth maneuver to grant citizenship to 30 million illegals is no gnat. Immigration is THE issue, and my read is that Cruz betrayed us while leaving himself room for plausible deniability. If I'm right that means he's fooled huge numbers of people on the right, which makes him a dangerous man.

Sure, I could go on about Trump's problems, and there are many, but he is the only candidate who hasn't already betrayed us.

I confused part three with part two -- for me, the series ends at part two. Perfectly.

Don't see the penchants for ambition and violence in the protagonist as portrayed. He never wanted to be involved with the business, despite the lures of wealth and power. Instead, he joined the military.

As for violence, he only got involved when things got personal and people got nasty. They shot up his dad and then held him while a cop broke his jaw. That's not a penchant, that's just consequence.

yes. There is a subset of republican voters who dearly love to cannibalize their own for not being perfect.

@150 A stealth maneuver to grant citizenship to 30 million illegals is no gnat. Immigration is THE issue, and my read is that Cruz betrayed us while leaving himself room for plausible deniability. If I'm right that means he's fooled huge numbers of people on the right, which makes him a dangerous man.

Sure, I could go on about Trump's problems, and there are many, but he is the only candidate who hasn't already betrayed us.


This is where you guys lose me. Trump is for (touchback) amnesty for the illegals that are living here right now. All of them except for the gang members. That's his campaign position. Surely after being legalized they, too, will receive citizenship eventually? Why does Trump get a pass on this? What, exactly, makes his position stronger than Cruz's?

It's been a constant of history. The kind of men driven to and capable of acquiring power tend to be adulterers. It's just that now, in America, we hear about it. In the past we didn't really.

As it's become a commonplace, it's lost its power to destroy a politician's career.

It's so simple. Deporting illegals is a step in the right direction. Granting them permanent residency is the wrong direction.

US Vice President Joe Biden will start his five-day Middle East tour in Israel Tuesday, March 8, by presenting the multibillion financial and defense aid package promised by the Obama administration to redress the imbalance in Israeli security generated by the nuclear deal with Iran. debkafile’s sources report that Prime Minister’s Binyamin Netanyahu was also quietly tipped from Biden’s close circle that he may decide to use the handover of this package as the opening shot of his run for the Democratic presidential nomination, despite past repudiations.

Our sources in Jerusalem reveal that Israeli officials in charge of staging the Biden visit were directed to handle the visitor to all intents and purposes as a candidate running for election to the White House on Nov. 4.

I think more likely they think that a Cruz presidency they can ride out and it doesn't "fundamentally transform" the government in the way that they fear a Trump presidency would.

Trump’s repatriation plan will reveal the true number of illegals being several times the 11 million figure we’ve been hearing about for over a decade. Once the reality of the situation is laid bare for all the see, the calculus as to how many can come back will change completely. Suddenly the nation will be much more cautious about who we let in and the entire conversation will take place within the context of the national interest. Trump is the only one serious about immigration.

Shady and dishonest used car salesmen are cowards. When the entire worlds decides to reign hellfire down on a person for months on end for challenging orthodoxy so completely cowards immediately run for cover and beg for forgiveness. They don't stand tall holding up their middle finger asking if that is all you got.

Its fascinating.


"Lord and Savoir Trump" might be a little strong, but, as I've recently been reminded, watching the incessant pedestalizing of the undisputed world champion of empty suit posturing by the hornswoggled hoards does get tedious as hell.

That's too optimistic to be believable. There are "several times" more than 11 million here? I don't disagree, but when it comes out that there's actually 40+ million here we are more likely to hear Trump say that his initial deportation plan was unrealistic, as he assumed just 11 million or so needed to be deported. And since they're going to be brought back anyway -- to do all those American jobs -- a good compromise would be to just let them stay, give them legal worker status, and then focus on removing the criminal / gang element.

If the price of "the wall" (with a big, beautiful open door) is amnesty then I don't think this is a bargain. One thing Trump doesn't understand is that it is somewhat immaterial if the immigration is legal or illegal. At least when it's illegal there is a method on the books for dealing with the situation. Once they're granted legal status it's done.

I don't deny that Trump has the most anti-immigration rhetoric. But when you look beyond the rallies and hear what else he is saying, you see that he is actually quite pro-immigration.

Anyone who isn't an out-and-out traitor will gasp in disbelief when it's revealed the number of illegals in the US is larger than the population of any European nation. Reflexive resistance to Trump will evaporate for a time as people process the new information and the responsible people in government will look to President Trump for leadership in solving the problem.

If anything Trump will be allowed more time to move the people out so that it is not done too precipitously.

@194 And what is your alternative johnc? You conveniently avoid covering that.

I don't think there is a political solution, or at least not one revealing itself during this election cycle. The problems of the world are ultimately of spiritual, not political, origin.

The good thing is that nationalism is on the rise. And now it's out in the open thanks to Trump wisely tapping into it and using it to push him atop all the other goons that were in the contest.

Now when he betrays us, the response could go either way. Anger could boil over, or the movement could experience a great disillusionment much like conservatives had with the Bush presidency.

And all I'm saying is let's be honest with ourselves about the man. I was a Trump fan until his gaffe in the debate, and that, to me, was the crack that couldn't go unnoticed. And after digging deeper, I don't like what I see. The stuff he says at his rallies sounds great; for me it was always a question of his sincerity.

Anonymous Andrew E. March 07, 2016 12:15 PM  

One of Trump's faults is that he's a believer in the brain drain. He thinks the US should be taking in all the best and brightest from around the world to make the country competitive and dominant again. I think he's used to hiring and working with brilliant people from all over the world since his company is global and he thinks the US should be doing the same thing. I disagree with him on this but the numbers we're talking about are as nothing compared to the problems of illegal and legal immigration generally.
