Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) came to the upstate of South Carolina Tuesday meeting at Furman University for a national defense forum.
Rubio began by addressing ISIS by stating, “We have to stop ISIS from moving into countries and confront them on the ground.”
The Florida Senator was referring to confronting ISIS in other countries; however, never addressed fighting ISIS on American soil. He commented, “We need to get Sunnis to help fight the Shiites, which is critical in the fight.”
This tactic he may find hard due to the fact that they are fellow countryman.
Rubio mentioned that America needed to put out its own propaganda via Youtube.com stating, “We have to beat ISIS in the propaganda battle. We are now concerned about people, who are radicalized at a local mosque or YouTube video and that is the nature of the threat.”
The nature of the threat is not “radical Islam,” but Islam itself. From the Quran Sura 5:33:
“Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.”
Several things constitute “making mischief in the land,” which include, but is not limited to, apostasy, preaching another religion other than Islam, becoming to westernized, or violating sharia law and is punishable by death, crucifixion, and for lesser crimes they cut off body parts, or publically shame them.
Senator Rubio then shifted to the border declaring, “The people crossing the border, most of them are not from Mexico and we need to work with Mexico to help them secure their border because people have realized that if you can get to Mexico you can get to the U.S.”
This statement brings out Rubio as a Neo-conservative (Neocon), who is trying to establish a one-world government and the redistribution of wealth through foreign aid. “Support foreign aid!” exclaimed Rubio. How can anyone support foreign aid with the national debt as high as it is?
Rubio was asked, “What do you believe best prepares you to be Commander-in-chief?”
“It begins with the understanding of what America’s role in the world should be,” he said. “We are not just another country and for reasons we don’t fully understand. America has been charged with the task of being the most influential nation on earth. Since World War II, through American democracy, freedom, liberty, and peace have broken out throughout the world.”
Rubio here misrepresents America as a democracy. However, America is a republic.
Among the Republican candidates, Rubio has a fundamental problem with his candidacy: He is not a natural born citizen of the United States. Some may argue against this statement. However, Article II, Section 1 of the US Constitution reads:
“No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
Rubio’s parents were not U.S. Citizens at the time of his birth and did not obtain their U.S. Citizenship until later which, excludes him from the office.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
