Marco Rubio STUNS With Syria, Blasts Obamacare, Angles For 2016

Joe Scarborough appeared on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show to offer his reaction the Senate Foreign Relations Committee vote approving military force in Syria today, zeroing in on Republican Sen. Marco Rubio’s decision to vote against the resolution. Scarborough called Rubio’s vote “absolutely stunning.”

Scarborough went on the say that the formerly “neo-conservative” Rubio’s thinking appears to be steered by the actions of his more tea party-aligned colleagues Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). ‘I really thought that he would take the classic Reagan position, that he would speak out as a friend of Israel.'”* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

The MexiMorman War: Mitt Romney’s Family vs The Mexican Drug Cartels

I came across an interesting documentary about how the cartels of Juarez, Mexico, are at war with a group of Mormons, some of whom are related to Mitt Romney.  Although this may sound sensational and heroic, keep in mind, that violence, corruption and murder has not been committed by the Drug Cartels alone.  Vice films went there to document the conflict, meet Romney’s Mexican Mormon family, and find out more about how US policy is impacting the war on drugs.
