That Video Of Marco Rubio Supposedly Supporting Carbon Credits In 2008 IS DECEPTIVELY EDITED!!

OK so everyone is freaking out over this video of Marco Rubio in 2008. In it, it sounds like he’s energetically supporting a cap-and-trade system and carbon credits in 2008. That would certainly not be conservative.

But… just a month ago, he ripped into carbon taxes, as this video shows from one of his events:

SO WHAT’S THE DEAL MARCO?!? HUH?!?!

Well, this is what I found. It appears that the video is cropped to misrepresent his view – ironically, it appears that he was pushing a “poison pill” legislation in order to keep the carbon tax option in the hands of the legislation and away from the Florida governor at the time, which was the hideous snake Charlie Crist.

Here’s the entire video of Marco Rubio discussing the carbon tax, unedited. 

BUT this is the important part – the above video cuts out right when he says he DOESN’T want it implemented, but he wants the Florida legislature to design it:

AND further on, he specifically says that we’re gonna clean up the environment through free market innovation, NOT through government mandates – this is in the same video as above, it’s just edited out:

Here’s an article where he discusses what he did in 2008:

Rubio did raise concerns about the potential costs of cap-and-trade as soon as Crist made climate change a priority of his new administration in 2007. In a column in the Miami Herald that year, Rubio pointed to a think tank’s estimate that emission caps would hike consumers’ utility bills by an estimated 25 percent to 50 percent. He advocated tax incentives for energy-efficient companies and investments in ethanol and other biofuels instead.

By 2008, as Crist’s poll ratings held strong, Rubio called a federal cap-and-trade system “inevitable” and said Florida should be at the forefront. He hired a leading climate change expert from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to advise lawmakers and appointed Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts Harvey Ruvin — who sounded the alarm on climate change years ago — to a statewide energy board.

“The legislation was passed to move forward on cap-and-trade policy, and certainly Marco Rubio didn’t stand in the way of that legislation passing and my understanding was that he was supportive of the process,” said John Reilly, the MIT expert. “He certainly seemed to accept the science of climate change.”

Here’s his explanation:

Rubio maintained Thursday that the legislation he supported had the effect of neutering Crist’s executive orders. “We took the power out of his hands and put it into the hands of the Legislature,” he said. “If we passed no legislation, his executive orders would have become law.”

Crist denies this claim.

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT.

Don’t believe a video that cuts off so quickly like that. Someone is trying to deceive you. Now go, and sin no more.

    BUSTED ! – Republican State of Union Response Carried Amnesty Pledge in Spanish Version…

    Posted on January 13, 2016 by sundance

    A Tale of Two Shiftys’

    There is a bigger controversy about to break wide-open that’s potentially far more significant than Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell approving Nikki Haley’s non-subtle attack on GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. That bigger controversy is the Spanish version of the GOP State of the Union rebuttal containing an “amnesty pledge“.

    As this is written, Governor Nikki Haley is trying to get out ahead of the building expose’. Haley just gave a DC press conference claiming she does not support “amnesty”; however, against her earlier admission of Speaker Ryan and Leader McConnell approving the script – the Spanish version must have held similar approvals.

    Governor Haley gave the English version, Miami Representative and party-insider Mario Diaz-Barlat delivered it in Spanish. Here’s a (paragraph by paragraph) comparison as translated by the Miami Herald (emphasis mine):

    ♦ English (Via Haley): No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.

    Spanish (Via Diaz-Barlat): No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love the United States should ever feel unwelcome in this country. It’s not who we are.

    ♦ English: At the same time, that does not mean we just flat out open our borders. We can’t do that. We cannot continue to allow immigrants to come here illegally. And in this age of terrorism, we must not let in refugees whose intentions cannot be determined.

    Spanish: At the same time, it’s obvious that our immigration system needs to be reformed. The current system puts our national security at risk and is an obstacle for our economy.

    ♦ English: We must fix our broken immigration system. That means stopping illegal immigration. And it means welcoming properly vetted legal immigrants, regardless of their race or religion. Just like we have for centuries.

    Spanish: It’s essential that we find a legislative solution to protect our nation, defend our borders, offer a permanent and human solution to those who live in the shadows, respect the rule of law, modernize the visa system and push the economy forward.

    ♦ English: I have no doubt that if we act with proper focus, we can protect our borders, our sovereignty and our citizens, all while remaining true to America’s noblest legacies.

    Spanish: I have no doubt that if we work together, we can achieve this and continue to be faithful to the noblest legacies of the United States.

    It is important to remember the backdrop to this current dual narrative (one the GOPe leadership want to say publicly and one they wish to keep hidden).

    Back in June 2014 Speaker John Boehner was only two days away from calling up the vote on the Senate “gang-of-eight” amnesty bill, when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated in the Virginia Primary.

    Mario Diaz Balart along with Paul Ryan and Luis V. Gutierrez were in secret negotiations throughout the spring/summer of 2014 planning the pathway for comprehensive immigration reform. John Boehner asked Kevin McCarthy to “whip the house” and identify if they had votes for passage:

    […] On Tuesday June 10th Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor (Majority Leader) and Kevin McCarthy (Majority Whip) had lunch together discussing timing the vote Thursday night or Friday Morning.

    However, later that same night the results from the 2014 Virginia primary showed an unknown conservative outsider, Dave Brat, had defeated (primaried) Eric Cantor. At 7:00pm Tuesday night the first word went out that Cantor had lost.

    ~ Full Back Story

    So this hidden narrative within the 2016 Republican State of the Union Rebuttal should come as no surprise. Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the GOPe agenda they continue to hide from the electorate.
