In the world of the Leftists, one of the most key points of national security right now…and the Fake News Industrial Complex will chime right in to confirm…is the Confederate monuments and the protests surrounding their continued existence in this country. If not for those monuments and the ginned-up controversy surrounding the two divisions of the country, they’d really have no news.
In the real world, however…the same place where the Right resides, where President Donald Trump lives, and where Kim Jong-un, Hassan Rouhani, and Bashar al-Assad exist…there is a sense that much more impending and deadly issues are at the forefront of the national dialogue. While it’s easy to understand why the Left is lost in space when it comes to important issues, what with Obama choosing to remain quiet more often than not during his tenure, it cannot be denied that Trump is a much more capable executive when it really counts.
As for Congress, many on the Left believe that the healthcare debate is the most important issue, but as it turns out (once again) the Democrats are in the dark about most everything that really matters. Senator Marco Rubio has been absent of late, but not because of extended vacations or sickness. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) made him aware of a memo circulating around South and Central America that fingered the Florida senator for assassination!
The Miami Herald reported Sunday that a memo circulating among relevant law enforcement revealed evidence that Diosdado Cabello, an alleged drug lord and once Venezuela’s second-in-command, ordered the assassination of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).
A defecting senior chavista official once branded Cabello the head of the notorious “Cartel de los Soles” multinational cocaine trafficking operation, while Rubio himself has referred to Cabello as “the Pablo Escobar of Venezuela.” In addition to his position in the fabricated “national constituents assembly” created to rewrite the constitution to benefit dictator Nicolás Maduro, Cabello hosts the television program Con el mazo dando (“Hitting with the Mallet”) on state television.
According to the Herald, a law enforcement memo “disseminated last month by the Department of Homeland Security” accused Cabello of issuing an “order to have Senator Rubio assassinated.” The memo did not provide details and instead noted that “no specific information regarding an assassination plot against Senator Rubio has been garnered thus far.”
The memo reportedly indicated that Homeland Security had evidence that Cabello had contacted “unspecified Mexican individuals” to plot Rubio’s murder. The socialist Venezuelan government has long been suspected of ties to Mexican drug cartels, though the U.S. Treasury has only officially linked the nation’s vice president Tareck El Aissami, not Cabello, with the Mexican Zetas cartel.
The senator has recently taken on more security in the nation’s capital and in his home state of Florida, particularly noticeable after the memo was issued. Fox News also confirmed that Rubio had expanded his security detail recently, perhaps in response to the threats.
What will happen now is a bigger presence of security around the senator and a vigilance that is normally reserved for the president. In this case, the swine that issued the order should at least man up and admit that he was the one who ordered the hit.
In the meantime, Rubio needs to be extremely careful in how he reacts to this threat. Obviously it’s significant, especially when one takes into account the extreme capabilities of these paid assassins who don’t blink when they shoot someone in the back to the head. Keep the senator and his family and security detail in your prayers.
