Rusty Roberts, a candidate trying to catch the Republican nomination in Florida’s 7th congressional district, spent years donating to globalist politicians and lobbying for business interests intertwined with the Chinese Communist Party.
By Jacob Engels
The former Chief of Staff to Congressman John Mica recently entered the Republican primary for Florida’s 7th congressional district, posting $173,000 during his first 10 days in the race. If this were 2005 and Bush Republicans still controlled the Republican primary and party activists, Roberts would be a frontrunner for sure.
He’s got decades long experience in the United States capitol and another decade or so as a lobbyist for high-speed rail companies in the Sunshine state and beyond.
However, in Trump’s Republican party, which is geared towards putting America First, Roberts would be dead-on-arrival if not for the fact that he has spent years padding the pockets of globalist members of congress and lobbying for American business interests that openly do business with the Chinese Communist Party.
To be clear, there is nothing wrong with Roberts being an openly gay man or receiving support from the Log Cabin Republicans in his bid to become the first out-gay Republican member of congress. The issue for Roberts exists in his record of knowingly donating to people who oppose Nationalist America First policy and those who have openly attacked President Donald J. Trump.
In 2014, Roberts donated $1,000.00 to Illena Ros-Lehtinen, a group that represents members of congress who have long been pro-abortion, climate change, anti-Tea Party and anti-Trump. Ros-Leihtnen pushed for the firing of White House advisor Steve Bannon, based on claims the fake news media made claiming Bannon is a White Nationalist. She only voted with Trump 66% of the time and was ranked the 2nd most bi-partisan member of congress. When President Trump imposed a moratorium on migration into the United States, she opposed it. Ros-Leihtinen is also a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus with Stephanie Murphy, the person Roberts hopes to replace.
Rusty Roberts also gave Jeb Bush $1,000 in 2016 during the primary where he was facing President Donald J. Trump. We all know how globalists like the World Economic Forum, which tells us “we will own nothing by 2030 and be happy”, love the war-mongering Bush family. He only gave $450 to Trump when he became the nominee, why didn’t Donald J. Trump deserve the same amount as Roberts gave Jeb, if not more?
Again in 2016, Rusty Roberts gave to known liberal open-borders Democrat Darren Soto, who was then running for congress, but had spent years in the state legislature supporting Planned Parenthood at the same time Roberts was in the highest levels of politics with a keen understanding about the people he put his financial faith behind. Soto also pushed for in-state tuition and drivers licenses for illegal immigrants, voted for both impeachments of President Trump, and received numerous F ratings from the NRA.
Also in 2016, Rusty Roberts shuffled $500 to another well-known moderate congressional staffer David Jolly. Mr. Jolly has allegedly been long aligned with the Church of Scientology. Jolly would go on to be an independent as part of his “disgust” with Trump and has participated in numerous interviews with The Lincoln Project, a Never Trump PAC that has a pedophilia and sexual harassment problem.
Carlos Curbelo, got $700 from Roberts in 2016 and another $500 in 2018. Curbelo is pro-abortion, co-founder of the Climate Caucus, member of the Republican Main Street Partnership, making Curbelo the third member of this known globalist group that Roberts has given money to. He also was for the carbon tax and refused to vote for Trump in the primary and general election. Curbelo was also the first GOP lawmaker to suggest that President Trump be impeached during the first witch hunt.
In 2018, Roberts stroked a check for South Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson to the tune of $500. Wilson is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and referred to members of the Tea Party movement as “the enemy of America,” who were holding Americans hostage. Wilson, like many of the candidates who got money from Rusty Roberts, also voted for the impeachment of President Trump.
Now that we have gotten through his concerning political donations, what did Roberts do after retiring from being a high-level political staffer in DC?
He went on to become a lobbyist, of course!
As a lobbyist he represented the America Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, which claims to advance the business interests of companies doing business in China. The 1993 Company Law in China requires that all companies based in China, both foreign and domestic, “allow the establishment of CCP units to carry out the activities of the party”, and the very strong hand of the CCP in the private sector has only gotten stronger in recent years as President Xi Jinping has been actively jailing, seizing funds, or “disappearing” prominent billionaires who have crossed his regime.
Stephanie Murphy and her husband have documented business interests in China, which we exposed years ago and re-examined shortly before her surprise retirement.
Did Roberts advocate on Murphy’s behalf?
Rusty Roberts also represented a similar group called the Asian Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce, which also had contact with the Chinese Communist Party.
One has to wonder how long Roberts has been advocating for business interests involved with, and potentially in cooperation with the Chinese Communist Party?
Mr. Roberts poster as a “pragmatic conservative” isn’t off brand. He certainly does represent the Bush GOP, which is rife with globalists and Trump hating Republicans.
In order for him to run a campaign that respects and dignifies the Republican voters in CD7, which are almost entirely part of the America First Trump wing of the GOP, Rusty Roberts needs to come clean about his globalist past.
