    Responding to legislation that cleared the Florida Legislature last week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has introduced a pair of bills in Congress, one allowing Florida to stay in daylight saving time year-round and the other putting the entire nation on year-round daylight saving time. Florida lawmakers passed a bill sponsored by state Sen. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, that asks Congress to permit the state to maintain daylight saving time all year. Congress currently allows states to opt out of daylight saving time and stay in standard time year-round, but not the other way around. “Reflecting the will of the Sunshine State,...

    On Wednesday, Jake Tapper hosted a CNN town hall special episode with survivors and relatives of the victims of the Florida school shooting titled “Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action.” As one might suspect, this was not exactly a fair and balanced forum for debating gun control. Pro-gun control student activists, teachers, and parents of murdered students dominated the discussion and posed most of the questions to the town hall’s five guest speakers.Florida Senator Marco Rubio and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch were among those five who went up on stage to answer questions, but they did not...

    Wednesday's CNN town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing was off the rails from the start. So-called moderator Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Fla.) with boos and jeers for basically just being there. The wildest moment allowed by Tapper was when Parkland, Florida student Cameron Kasky smeared the Senator by equating him to the shooter that killed 17 of his classmates. And Tapper thanked him for all of it. “I'm sorry, I know I'm not supposed to do this, but I'm not going to listen to that. Senator Rubio, it's...

    SUNRISE, Fla. — Republican Sen. Marco Rubio was put on the defensive Wednesday by angry students, teachers and parents who are demanding stronger gun-control measures after the shooting rampage that claimed 17 lives at a Florida high school. One of those confronting the Florida senator at a CNN's "Stand Up" town hall Wednesday night was Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was killed on Feb. 14 with 16 others. Rubio was the lone Republican at the nationally broadcast gathering after Florida's GOP Gov. Rick Scott and President Donald Trump declined invitations to appear at the event in Sunrise, Florida. ......

Cameron Kasky, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, put the question directly to Rubio. “Senator Rubio, can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA in the future?” Kasky said. Rubio replied, “I can tell you that people buy into my agenda. And I do support the second amendment.”

    On Friday, an agitated Donny Deutsch reached the end of his rope on the set of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Deutsch, who appeared deeply affected by a clip of President Trump calling The New York Times “fake news,” eschewed the traditional combination of liberal snark and false superiority characteristic of the show’s other panelists, opting instead to go with unmitigated rage. Deutsch’s rant kicked off with the assertion that Republicans questioning the objectivity of the Mueller investigation were “undermining the FBI and undermining the news.” “Forget the obstruction,” he continued, “forget the actual charge. This continual assault on the things that...

CNN interviewed the pair about Rubio's bold performance in last night's CNN debate.

    Senator Rubio on Tuesday convened and fiercely led the first public hearing demanding answers for what appears to have been a systematic and targeted attack on American diplomats working in Cuba possibly by the Cuban government.State Department officials were grilled before the Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee for both answers on the attack and the apparently slow response to investigating and taking countermeasures against it. In overseeing the hearing, Senator Rubio did a remarkable job in beginning to find out exactly what happened and how we can ensure the Castro government does not swat us around and so brazenly prey on...

    Sen. Marco Rubio pushed back Sunday against comments from a Republican colleague that the United States has found no evidence of “sonic attacks” in Cuba. The Florida Republican charged the attacks were a “documented fact.” In a series of tweets Sunday, Rubio dismissed comments by Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, a longtime advocate for improving ties with Cuba, stating that any U.S. official briefed on the mysterious events in Havana “knows full well that while method of attack still in question, that attacks and injuries occurred isn’t.” “It’s a documented FACT that 24 U.S. govt officials & spouses were victims...

    On yesterday's America's Newsroom on Fox, Sandra Smith had a segment in which Rich Lowry and democrat Ben Kissel were discussing the new Papadopoulos canard the NY Times is trying to sell as the spark for the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign. Near the end of the segment Kissel reverted to parroting the claim that the GOP had paid for part of the Trump dossier. That is completely false. One more time for you democrats: Oct. 2015: It was reported late Friday that the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website funded by GOP mega-donor Paul Singer, hired Fusion GPS to...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) have introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, which would move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and therefore recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital city. Currently, the U.S. Embassy is located in Tel Aviv. In a statement, Sen. Cruz said that it was "finally time" to move the embassy. “Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided capital of Israel,” Sen. Cruz said. “Unfortunately, the Obama administration's vendetta against the Jewish state has been so vicious that to even utter this simple truth - let alone the reality...

Despite a razor-thin margin needed to pass the measure, McCain's presence will not likely be the determining factor in the vote. Two...

    The Republican tax reform package agreed upon by House and Senate lawmakers contains language allowing illegal immigrants with American citizen children to get a tax credit. The final GOP tax bill doubles the child tax credit from $1,000 to $2,000 and increases the amount of the refundable child tax credit to $1,400. This policy change geared towards helping working class families was pushed by Republican Sen. Marco Rubio. The conference bill includes language from the Senate tax plan that allowed parents of so-called “anchor babies” to receive the tax credit. “In order to receive the child tax credit (i.e., both...
