    During the Republican primaries, Joe Scarborough’s favorite object of ridicule was Marco Rubio. Scarborough dismissed Rubio as a “school council president,” called him the “emptiest of suits,” and attacked his supporters. In a particularly personal shot, Scarborough devoted much of a show to mocking Rubio’s wearing of boots with large heels. But suddenly, Scarborough has become a huge Marco admirer. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough repeatedly praised Rubio and his “courage.” So what shifted Scarborough from Rubio antagonist to fanboy? View the video here.

    The Senate can't seem to repeal ObamaCare. Or get much of anything done. But it found time for important matters like this... as Judith Bergman at Gatestone reveals. On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, "Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States". The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA (formerly EmergeUSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). The resolution includes the claim that...

    While much of the world has focused on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, opposition forces in Venezuela continue to battle the brutal regime of Nicolas Maduro. While opposition forces battle for their basic human rights, the world, and in particular the government of the United States has remained largely silent. In February of this year, opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez was arrested by government officials on charges of "inciting unrest" for leading, at the time, peaceful protests against the policies of Nicolas Maduro and his ruling United Socialist Party. Despite the overriding belief that he was being held illegally, few world...

    In a speech you didn’t hear because it doesn’t make for good TV or push a liberal narrative, Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla. (C, 74%) warned that tolerating Warren’s brand of slanderous rhetoric on the floor of the U.S. Senate undermines the institution and weakens our republic. “I want people to think about our politics here today in America,” Rubio exhorted his colleagues. “Because I’m telling you guys, I don’t know of a single nation in the history of the world that’s been able to solve its problems when half the people in the country absolutely hate the other half of...

    A bipartisan group of senators is moving to check President Trump on Russia by bolstering congressional oversight before he can lift sanctions. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) introduced legislation Wednesday setting up a period of congressional oversight before Trump could roll back financial penalties. The legislation, known as the Russia Sanctions Review Act, would require Trump to notify Congress before he lifts sanctions tied to the invasion of Ukraine or Russia's meddling in the White House race. “To provide relief at this time would send...

    Consistent with Trump's campaign position that it belongs there If they follow through, this would be almost as powerful a response to Obama, Kerry and the UN’s Israel-haters as defunding and pulling out of the UN entirely - which is not to say the one should obviate the other. If you ask me, we should do both. But this appears to be the first serious attempt in Washington to have the location of our embassy reflect our official belief that Jerusalem is, in fact, Israel’s rightful capital

    Trudeau is a disgusting piece of work and his statement of the death of his beloved friend Fidel merely enforced that No matter what your political stripe is, occasionally you find your country’s leader, to use the vernacular “step in it.” Certainly Americans who are not on the far left can identify with that during the last eight years of the Obama administration. But rarely does a leader say something that makes you feel ashamed and embarrassed to have to admit you are a citizen of your country. A lot of Canadians feel that way after hearing what their prime...

    A criminal organization masquerading as a political party, as somebody or other famously said: The FBI is investigating an alleged illegal donation scheme involving a wealthy Saudi family that supports Democratic Florida Senate candidate Patrick Murphy. The Hill has found no evidence that Murphy himself was involved in, or even aware of, the alleged scheme. The Murphy campaign declined to say whether the candidate is aware of the FBI probe, but the campaign said neither Murphy nor his campaign staff is being investigated.The Murphy campaign noted that a conservative super PAC earlier this year filed a complaint on the issue...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said that he will not discuss any leaked documents published by WikiLeaks and is calling on the rest of his party to ignore them as well. "As our intelligence agencies have said, these leaks are an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process and I will not indulge it,” Rubio told ABC News. "Further, I want to warn my fellow Republicans who may want to capitalize politically on these leaks: Today it is the Democrats. Tomorrow it could be us."
  • RINO's deafening silence on Veritas expose of DNC fraud: Rubio, McCain, Ryan, Ayotte, where are you?

    10/18/2016 5:57:38 PM PDT · by Javeth · 47 replies
    As everyone's been hearing and talking about, James O'Keefe and Veritas have torn away the facade to expose the mass fraud, corruption and assaults on democracy being carried out by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign against Trump and Republicans (not to mention Bernie Sanders before that), with devastating videos that are already dominating social media this week. Already Scott Foval, Bob Creamer and other crooked Dem operatives have been fired, and the fallout is only beginning. As usual and unsurprisingly, the "mainstream" media has been almost totally silent on these smoking-gun revelations-- DNC operatives openly talking about how they've...

    After enthusiastically endorsing and campaigning for Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican presidential primary, radio talk show host Glenn Beck admitted he made an error and said he should have supported Marco Rubio instead. Beck had just finished a contentious interview with Cruz, in which he quizzed the Texas Senator about supporting Donald Trump after making a public show of not endorsing him. “For the very first time I heard Ted Cruz calculate,” he said after the commercial break. “And when that happened, the whole thing fell apart for me,” he continued. “And it’s my fault. It’s my fault for...

    MIAMI — Senator Marco Rubio of Florida was nominated for a second term by Republican voters on Tuesday, five months after suspending his presidential campaign. He will face Representative Patrick Murphy, a two-term House Democrat, in one of the crucial races for control of the Senate. The primary results appeared to point to a preference among voters in Florida, a pivotal swing state, to eschew more extreme candidates on the right and the left in favor of establishment lawmakers favored by national party leaders. In another important primary race, Senator John McCain of Arizona, a Republican seeking a sixth term,...

    As Rep. Alan Grayson’s Senate campaign began falling apart over allegations he beat his ex-wife, he blasted out a new robocall touting a Grayson for U.S. House campaign. Grayson, however, wasn’t dropping out of the Senate race and running for reelection. Instead, he was phoning Wednesday on behalf of his new wife, Dena Minning Grayson. She married him during the election season on Memorial Day weekend, when she was running as Dena Minning. She promptly changed her last name and began campaigning as his ideological and familial heir in a district where she didn’t live and was once a complete...

    A high-powered group of senators officially petitioned the State Department Thursday to suspend the security clearances of former Secretary Hillary Clinton and her top aides — a move that could effectively kneecap her preparations for the White House. Sen. Marco Rubio, a member of the intelligence committee, led the push, joined by Sen. John Cornyn, the Senate’s second-ranking Republican and a handful of others... They took that step after the White House said it wouldn’t act on its own. The administration says both major presidential candidates have traditionally gotten such access, and President Obama won’t break that tradition despite the...

    Marco Rubio has decided to skip the GOP convention in Cleveland this month after originally saying he would attend, citing the rigors of his newly launched Senate campaign. He's the latest major GOP politician to skip out on the convention, which will serve as Donald Trump's coronation as the party's nominee. Only a small handful of Trump's former rivals will attend. "Florida has always been a competitive state and it will be this fall. Marco had planned to go to the convention before he decided to seek re-election. Since Marco got into the race late, he will be in Florida...

    If you think "Robot Rubio" faded away after Marco's painful debate in New Hampshire, think again. The Carlos Beruff Senate campaign has resurrected that image of Marco Rubio as a talking points repeater in a new digital ad featuring clips of newly minted Senate candidate Rubio repeatedly declining to make an "unequival" statement promising to fill out a full second term rather than run again for president.
