Pro-Gay Marriage, Billionaire Zionist and Israeli Firster Paul E Singer Just Another Sugar-Daddy For Marco Rubio
By Jack Allen
I am sure Singer wants something for his money and his support. Politicians like Marco Rubio are just bought off puppets!
On the exact opposite end of that spectrum we find Marco Rubio. A man so incapable of free-thought, he becomes the ideal target for billionaires looking to craft the perfect puppet. Forget Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio is now the establishment GOP’s pick, and they will do everything in their power to get him the nomination.
There are three billionaire oligarchs in particular who seem to really love Rubio. They are Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer and Ken Griffin.

2016 Presidential Race
Singer appears to be actively involved in fundraising for Republican presidential candidates for the 2016 election cycle, though as of May 2015 he seemed not to have chosen a single candidate to back. Singer was “actively fundraising” for Sen. Marco Rubio‘s bid for the White House, according to Breitbart in April 2015, while The Wall Street Journal reported that Singer was hosting events for Ohio Gov. John Kasich and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in May 2015.
Paul E. Singer, a former corporate lawyer, is President, Chief Executive Officer, Co-Chief Investment Officer, Senior Risk Manager, and Director of the Elliott Management Corporation, a hedge fund. Elliott Management “has been called a ‘vulture fund’ because a chunk of its profits comes from buying distressed companies’ or countries’ debt at a steep discount and then playing hardball—including, in one case, detaining the flagship of Argentina’s navy—to extract payment,” according to Mother Jones.
Singer is a major contributor to Republican candidates and causes and has made at least one undisclosed contribution to Wisconsin Club for Growth, a group that is at the center of a long-running criminal investigation into potentially illegal campaign coordination with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. See Political Activities below.
Singer also serves as Chairman of the Board at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, a right-wing, pro-corporate think tank. Singer also advocates for legalizing same-sex marriage and formed the American Unity PAC in 2012 to fund Republican candidates who support equal marriage rights for same-sex couples.
Major pro-LGBT Republican donor backs Rubio
Following a standout performance by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in the third Republican presidential debate, a billionaire GOP philanthropist who supports LGBT rights has declared his support for the candidate’s 2016 bid. – See more at: http://www.washingtonblade.com/2015/10/31/major-pro-lgbt-republican-donor-backs-rubio/#sthash.iEf7d96m.dpuf
“At the end of the day, Paul Singer is an establishment Republican,” LaSalvia said. “The GOP establishment has been looking for a candidate to fall in line behind, and it’s looking like that’s Rubio.” In addition to helping fund campaigns for Republican presidential candidates, Singer stands out among Republican donors because he supports LGBT rights. His son, Andrew Singer, is gay. – See more at: http://www.washingtonblade.com/2015/10/31/major-pro-lgbt-republican-donor-backs-rubio/#sthash.iEf7d96m.dpuf
Other Jewish Money behind Rubio
From the Jewish publication: http://www.haaretz.com
A principal backer is Norman Braman, a car dealership magnate who moved to Florida in 1994 after selling his stake in the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles. A past president of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Braman has been close with Rubio since his meteoric rise through the Florida Legislature. Braman accompanied Rubio to Israel in 2010, just after his election to the U.S. Senate. Rubio’s ties to the broader Jewish community also extend back to his career in the Florida state legislature, and communal professionals credit him with being accessible.
His views: Rubio has blasted President Barack Obama on Israel, saying in his April 13 campaign launch that the administration bears “hostility” toward Israel.
When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanded recognition of Israel as part of a final Iran nuclear deal, Rubio was quick to propose the demand as an amendment to a bill requiring congressional review of any Iran deal.
The drama that followed Rubio’s proposal, which the Obama administration declared a poison pill, is illustrative of Rubio’s tendency to move between extreme to moderate positions. He withdrew the amendment on April 14, the day the Senate Foreign Relations Committee considered the broader bill, which ultimately passed unanimously.
Similar back-and-forth characterizes his immigration record. Rubio helped shepherd comprehensive immigration reform through the Senate in 2013, but after it failed in the U.S. House of Representatives, Rubio retreated to more hawkish positions popular with the Republican base, including tougher border security. He says the reform bill he once embraced was the right way to go at the time, but now say political realities dictate a piecemeal approach.

Top Israeli Firster Billionaire Purchases US Presidential Candidate Marco Rubio
Two days after what has been called a strong performance at the Republican debate, Marco Rubio has received the backing of billionaire Zionist and Israeli Firster Paul Singer.
Yes the same Paul Singer who funds and powers up The Paul E. Singer Foundationand its Israeli Firster Director and US mainstream media darling Dan Senor to buy off Congress to insure that Israel continues to fleece U.S. taxpayers in the billions upon billions of dollars with nothing in return for the American people.
A Rubio campaign aide confirmed to NBC News that Singer has thrown his support — and money and bundling expertise — behind the candidate. The New York Times first reported Singer was supporting Rubio.
Soliciting Singer’s support has been a “long-term effort,” according to the Rubio aide. Rubio met with him several times over the last several months. Singer supported Rubio in his 2010 Senate campaign.
The timing of Singer’s support couldn’t have come at a better time for Rubio, coming off a strong debate performance in which he appeared to outmaneuver rival Jeb Bush. Rubio, asked about Singer’s decision at a Republican rally in in Orange City, Iowa, Friday, said he welcomed the support.
“When people buy into us, they buy into our agenda, and I’m glad that he has and it’ll help us with resources. But, you know, resources are not enough. You’ll have to have the right ideas, the right principles and convince voters you’re the right person for the job,” Rubio said. “But we’re grateful to have his help, obviously.”
