AFTER DEATH OF SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SCALIA– Can you trust US Senate Republicans with the next Supreme Court confirmation?

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Consider this, as you watch press conferences, television ads, GOP debates and town hall meetings:

U.S. Senate Republicans (including Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio) unanimously voted YES on September 24, 2013 to confirm Barack Obama’s “openly-gay” judge nominee, Todd M. Hughes, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. This was one of the moments when authentic conservatives in America understood, once again, that the current Republicans in the U.S. Senate cannot be trusted. 

Remember that this unanimous vote by US Senate Republicans, in favor of this openly-gay judge, took place while family businesses– such as cake bakeries, wedding photo studios, etc., were being publicly harassed and forced into litigation, by the homosexual collective across the United States, for refusing to render services for homosexual “weddings”– based on their religious and moral beliefs.

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.43.57 PMGiven today’s news of the death of Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia, may he rest in peace, can you trust the Republicans in the U.S. Senate with the confirmation of the next Supreme? Some authentic conservatives lost all hope after the US Supreme Court ruled that homosexuals have the right to marry. But for those of us who still hope that the United States can be saved from the abyss of materialistic atheism, the confirmation of the next Supreme is still cause for concern.

 

Here’s my article from September 25, 2013 detailing the unanimous US Senate Republican confirmation of Todd M. Hughes:

THE TRUTH: Feigned conservative Republican U.S. Senators voted “Yea” for Judge Todd M. Hughes

 

WHERE ARE THE MEN AND THE WOMEN OF GOD?  Not in the U.S. Senate!

Republican U.S. Senators pulled a fast one, while conservatives across America are focused on supporting the important efforts to defund– and eventually bring down Obamacare.  These U.S. Senators are clearly telling us that they are only interested in fiscal problems, but not moral issues that are having devastating effects on public policy.  Another episode of willful delusions in government.

 

BALLOT - PRIMARY - U.S. SENATE (REPUBLICAN) 2012 - FLORIDAThere is a reason why I ran for the United States Senate, as an AUTHENTIC CONSERVATIVE Republican (On the Ballot 2012):  to fill the void of authentic conservatism in the U.S. Senate!

Here is another evidence of the tragic reality that we are facing:

Todd M. Hughes is an openly homosexual judge, appointed by Barack Obama.  He was confirmed 98-0, to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  Republican U.S. Senators who are being paraded as “conservatives,” were part of this travesty.

EXCERPT FROM THE WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCEMENT (Sep. 24):

This afternoon, the Senate unanimously confirmed Todd Hughes to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Like all of the President’s judicial nominees, Hughes has the intellect, experience, integrity, and temperament to be a successful judge. He is also gay.

The United States Courts of Appeals are the second-highest courts in the nation – a level just below the Supreme Court – and there has never been an openly gay judge to serve on a Court of Appeals until now.  Hughes’s historic confirmation is yet another “first” among President Obama’s federal judges.”

So Todd M. Hughes’s  sexual recreation as a “gay” man is extolled as a virtue– and is part of his qualification to serve as a judge in the second-highest court in the nation.

Alliance for Justice offers the following background information on Todd M. Hughes:

Excerpt:

He [Todd M. Hughes] is a former member of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Attorneys of Washington and the National LGBT Bar Association.

What can we expect next?

And these Republican Senators, who call themselves “conservatives”– had the audacity to cast a “Yea” vote, in support of Barack Obama’s pro-homosexual agenda.

God, please help us.

The traditional family is under vicious attack by an army of legislators who push liberalism and materialistic atheism– as they advance homosexual “marriage”– in their pernicious homosexual itinerary.

Meanwhile, it is very clear that it’s all about money and political expediency, for these feigned conservative Republican U.S. Senators.

Yes, of course, we want to get rid of Obamacare.  But trusting these politicians with your money, when you can’t even trust them on moral issues that are having devastating effects on public policy– is called willful delusions in government.

Someone has to say the truth…

This scenario may explain why Ted Cruz was the guest of honor at an event in New York City organized by an “openly-gay” hotelier in April, 2015.

Excerpts from the New York Times:

The dinner and “fireside chat” for about a dozen people with Mr. Cruz and his wife, Heidi, was at the Central Park South penthouse of Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner, longtime business partners who were once a couple and who have been pioneers in the gay hospitality industry.

Mr. Cruz also told the group that Peter Thiel, an openly gay investor, is a close friend of his, Mr. Sporn said. Mr. Thiel has been a generous contributor to Mr. Cruz’s campaigns.

…the juxtaposition of Mr. Cruz being the guest of honor at a home owned by two of the most visible gay businessmen in New York City was striking.

God help us!

THE 2016 RACE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE: Are Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio the “New Conservatives”?

Let’s examine this new breed of “conservatives” running for POTUS.

The following is an important excerpt from an article I published on December 10, 2013. It should be of great interest to my readers as they ponder the 2016 U.S. presidential election:

The New World Order that we live under—famously lauded by Republican U.S. President, George Herbert Walker Bush, has indeed grown deep roots in the minds of people all over the world. So much so, that religious leaders, politicians and monarchs who claim to care for the plight of the poor, have either issued statements (as in the Vatican’s statement issued by Francis) or have arrived in Johannesburg for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, claiming to honor Mandela—a man who shamelessly admired Fidel Castro’s brutal Communist dictatorship, clearly stated as follows:

“From its earliest days, the Cuban Revolution has also been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of the vicious imperialist-orchestrated campaign to destroy the impressive gain made in the Cuban Revolution… Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro.”—Nelson Mandela, July 26, 1991, Cuba

Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro
Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro

Another participant in the Mandela memorial service, who shocked many (except for me) was none other than U.S. Senator Ted Cruz from Texas, who issued the following statement, before traveling to Johannesburg:

“Nelson Mandela will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe. He stood firm for decades on the principle that until all South Africans enjoyed equal liberties he would not leave prison himself, declaring in his autobiography, ‘Freedom is indivisible; the chains on any one of my people were the chains on all of them, the chains on all of my people were the chains on me.’ Because of his epic fight against injustice, an entire nation is now free. 

“We mourn his loss and offer our condolences to his family and the people of South Africa.” — U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (Republican-Texas) – December 5, 2013

Ted Cruz has chosen to ignore Mandela’s admitted terrorist past as a Communist.  Cruz has also chosen to ignore the fact that Mandela institutionalized unfettered abortion in South Africa– and that he single-handedly turned South Africa into a nation with some the most liberal laws on earth.

Based on Cruz’ public statement of admiration for Mandela and his decision to participate in the Mandela memorial event, is it possible that Senator Ted Cruz still harbors admiration for his own father’s participation as a pro-Castro revolutionary activist?  “’He was a guerilla, throwing Molotov cocktails and blowing up buildings,‘ Ted Cruz told the Austin American-Statesman [about his father] for a profile published in January 2006,” according to The Dallas Morning News (October 25, 2011).

How else are we to explain Ted Cruz’ statement honoring Mandela– and his subsequent pilgrimage to South Africa to be at the memorial?

This two-sided political approach is very common in the Cuban exiled community and among those of Cuban descent, who often view their parents’ former socialist pro-Castro activism with starry-eyed idealism, while they also denounce Castro. This inconsistent political behavior is precisely what has divided the Cuban exiled community for more than 50 years.

As I said above, Ted Cruz’ participation in Nelson Mandela’s memorial and his written statement did not take me by surprise. Ted Cruz wants to have it both ways, but principled conservatives do not behave this way.

In what appears to be an obvious attempt to defuse the criticisms he has been receiving, Ted Cruz “walked out” when Raúl Castro was delivering his speech at the Mandela memorial. Too little, too late.

Another admirer of Nelson Mandela is U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, also of Cuban descent. Marco Rubio’s ambiguous account of his family’s return to Cuba afterCastro’s takeover in January 1959, continues to raise questions and eyebrows– considering that the executions of hundreds of innocent Cubans began immediately in 1959, in the fortress of La Cabaña. In addition, it was well known that hundreds of innocent farmers and civilians had been executed throughout the island by Castro and his band of Marxist thugs during their terrorist “revolution.” By 1960 all American businesses in Cuba had been nationalized without compensation– and the United States had broken off diplomatic relations with Havana.

Given these conditions, why did Marco Rubio’s parents leave the United States and return to Cuba to live under Castro?

Although Senator Marco Rubio did not travel to Johannesburg for Mandela’s memorial, his admiration for Nelson Mandela shows that Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Ted Cruz suffer from the same malady of political inconsistency. Much has changed with Rubio since he ran for the U.S. Senate.  Here is Marco Rubio’s statement paying homage to Mandela:

“The world has lost one of history’s most important figures, though Nelson Mandela’s example will live on for generations to come. Men and women striving for justice and fairness around the world have drawn inspiration from Nelson Mandela, and he showed South Africans and the entire world what the power of forgiveness truly means and can accomplish. My wife Jeanette and I send our condolences to the Mandela family and to the people of South Africa.” — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (Republican-Florida) December 5, 2013.

Nelson Mandela and Communism

Nelson Mandela was not a political prisoner. He was imprisoned for espousing violent activities through the Umkhonto we Sizwe (abbreviated MK)– a terrorist organization which he co-founded, as the “armed” wing of the African National Congress (ANC).

During his trial Nelson Mandela pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence, which included organizing terrorist bombing campaigns. Scores of innocent people, both black and white, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s Umkhonto we Sizwe terrorists, including women and children. In any other country Nelson Mandela would have been sentenced to death, or would have spent life in prison. Yet, he enjoyed communication privileges unheard of, for a prisoner with such a criminal record.

As such, even Amnesty International, which is well known for its progressive side, would not take on Mandela’s case, since he was not a political prisoner (“prisoner of conscience”). In addition, pursuant to Amnesty International’s criterion, a “prisoner of conscience” must not have used nor advocated violence.

As cruel and abominable as apartheid was, Mandela’s legacy of terrorist violence and support of murderous Communist dictatorships cannot be justified

By the time Mandela came out of prison and became President of South Africa he had given up on the idea of full-blown communism, given that he would not receive aid from the Soviet Union, which had recently collapsed.

Cuba’s communism, which Mandela so admired, was his scariest example of a communist country starving after its long dependence on the Soviet Union.  However, the communists from the former Communist bloc resurfaced through Sustainable Development (Agenda 21)– which is the United Nations socialist global initiative.  The operatives of Agenda 21 have worked tirelessly in Africa to advance socialism– in ways that the Soviet Union could not achieve.  Socialist politicians all over the world, including Mandela, have advanced their causes with the help of Sustainable Development, much more than they ever could with the help of the Soviets.

While Nelson Mandela praised Fidel Castro’s Communist dictatorship, the Strait of Florida had already become a cemetery for untold hundreds of thousands of Cubans who had drowned trying to escape.  This does not include the untold number executed by Castro’s government forces.  After nearly 55 years of Castro’s Communist dictatorship, the human loss has become one of the worst catastrophes recorded in modern history.  But New World Order religious leaders, politicians and monarchs do not feel it is in their best interest to demand that the Communist dagger be removed from the heart of the Cuban people…

FACTS ARE STUBBORN THINGS: The challenge of choosing the next President of the United States

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

FACTS ARE STUBBORN THINGS - Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.

John Adams

How will Americans choose their next president? That is the question the world is asking.

We are facing extreme challenges– with babies being cut into pieces on pie dishes at Planned Parenthood, Communism, Obama’s dangerous “deals” with rogue states like Cuba, Iran and others, ISIS beheading and crucifying Christians, Russia’s Soviet-style expansionism, China’s financial and military threats– and a global human migration and refugee crisis of catastrophic proportions. The latter will be exacerbated as the world will find it more and more difficult to battle against another financial crisis, given that central banks have used up most of their resources trying to deal with the last crisis. To read more about the state of central banks please click on the following report by the Bank of International Settlements.

All of these things– and more– affect us right here in the United States of America, because without the U.S. as a powerful world leader little will be accomplished, except to make more room for China’s international growth.

So, where do Americans begin?

Well, for one thing– Americans should not rely on cable and television network shows or “focus groups.”

Sadly, most hard-working Americans only get snippets of the presidential candidates, while they take a break from work and watch a few minutes of network chatter. Getting to know the candidates requires a bit more effort. This is not difficult, since two or three search terms on the internet will bring up a lot of information and statements made by the candidates.

The internet also features live speeches from the campaign trail that you will not hear on cable and television networks.  Search for them— you are missing a lot!

Cable and television networks mostly clip or spin statements made by candidates they do not like. Don’t be fooled and manipulated!

Learn to think for yourself!

Furthermore, it is the duty of every voter in America to take advantage of all written information that is available– and verify its authenticity— so as not to rely solely on cable and television network shows! Please!

Political debates will always have the nauseating presence of a cynical and biased “journalist”– so it is highly improbable that any meaningful results can be obtained from a debate that would help the voter make up his or her mind. One-minute answers to issues such as baby organ trafficking at Planned Parenthood, the extermination of Christians in the Middle East, immigration, Iran, etc., is simply not enough time. One-minute answers mostly serve as soundbites.

Radio interviews are a better medium– as long as the candidate is given ample time to answer and expand– when he or she is asked substantive questions. Most radio interviews are also available as podcasts for easy access after the radio program is finished.

There are voters who make up their minds from the beginning– having done little or no research about the candidate– and they simply don’t want to bother with the facts. These include a lot of well-meaning citizens– who are generally classified as “low-information voters.” If you fall under this category– don’t take offense. Do your homework!

With the perilous state that our country is in, my hope is that citizens will step out of their comfort zone and do some serious digging and research about the candidates.

Don’t let cable and television network talking heads and political operatives decide the future of this country. Otherwise, the die will be cast and our fate will be sealed by a few individuals who are mostly concerned with their media ratings and their pocketbooks.

Facts are stubborn things. Look for them– during this critical presidential election year.
