    Full title........Sen. Marco Rubio warns Trump a border emergency could embolden a future Dem president on climate change A national emergency declaration by President Donald Trump over border security could wind up hurting Republicans, GOP Sen. Marco Rubio told CNBC on Wednesday. The Florida Republican contended that Trump was elected on the promise of building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and the president has to “keep that promise.” But “we have to be careful about endorsing broad uses of executive power,” he added. “I’m not prepared to endorse that right now.” Such a declaration would set a precedent, Rubio...

    Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian congresswoman, made a change to the map of her congressional office in Washington, DC, replacing Israel with Palestine. After Tlaib, a Democrat from Michigan, swore in front of Congress last Thursday, a BuzzFeed reporter, who was touring the congresswoman’s new office, noticed a “slight change” on the map hung on the wall. One of the pictures posted by the reporter on Twitter revealed that someone, perhaps not Tlaib herself, placed a sticker, with the word Palestine on it, near the location of Israel on the map and accompanied it by an arrow directed to the...

    Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Republican Rep. Francis Rooney proposed a Constitutional amendment on Thursday that would impose term limits on members of both houses of Congress. The amendment, co-sponsored by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and David Perdue (R-Ga.), would restrict senators to two six-year terms and House members to three two-year terms. A similar amendment was proposed by Cruz in January of 2017. "For too long, members of Congress have abused their power and ignored the will of the American people," Cruz said. "Term limits on members of Congress offer a solution to the brokenness...

"I know he's been through the Senate process before. I'm going to watch the Judiciary process very closely. At the appropriate time I'll meet with the nominee and get my own take on it, and then I'll have a decision to make.

    Sen. Marco Rubio warned President Trump on Sunday that it would be a bad idea to pardon Paul Manafort. During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Rubio, R-Fla., said it would be a mistake for Trump to issue a pardon for his former campaign chairman after Special Counsel Robert Mueller accused Manafort of lying about his contacts with administration officials in 2018 and at least four other details related to the investigation into Russian election meddling during the 2016 campaign. “I haven’t heard that the White House is thinking about doing it,” Rubio said. “I advise strongly against it.

    The Trump administration is considering plans to designate Nicolás Maduro’s socialist regime in Venezuela a state sponsor of terrorism over its support for Hezbollah and Marxist guerrillas, according to a report from the Spanish newspaper ABC on Tuesday. According to U.S. officials who spoke with the Spanish newspaper, administration officials are currently deliberating whether to add Venezuela to the list of state sponsors of terrorism over its support for groups including the Basque separatist movement ETA, Iran’s Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah, and Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Officials have so far refused to officially confirm whether they plan to...

    In commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, French President Emmanuel Macron said: “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By saying ‘Our interests first, who cares about the others,’ we erase what a nation holds dearest . . . its moral values.” That might sound nice, but Mr. Macron got it almost exactly backward. It is through the nation that moral values can be upheld and sustained. In America, our ideals are deeply intertwined with our national traditions...

    Democrat lawyers have descended on Florida in order to steal the Senate and Governor elections from Republicans. Hillary Clinton, Perkins Coie and other DC swamp dwellers are now working round the clock to install their radical left-wing candidates. In a series of urgent tweets, Senator Rubio said late Tuesday evening that Democrat lawyers are actually asking a judge to change Florida election laws AFTER the election in order to steal the Senate and Governor seats.

    Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is warning that the fate of his state’s governorship could hang in the hands of Florida’s Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes, whom he’s called incompetent for violating state and federal laws. A liberal candidate similarly painted her as incompetent and corrupt. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum initially conceded the Florida race to Republican Ron DeSantis, but backtracked after vote totals changed Thursday, narrowing the gap to less than half a percent in both the gubernatorial and senatorial races. Broward County is often the slowest of the state’s 67 counties to count votes, and...

    Broward County and Palm Beach County in Florida, both Democrat strongholds are still counting ballots 43 hours after the polls closed. Florida is once again bracing for recounts–this time there are no ‘hanging chads,’ but Democrat lawyers are descending on the State to steal the election. Via The Miami Herald: Florida’s chief legal officer, Secretary of State Ken Detzner, told county election supervisors Thursday to plan for as many as three statewide recounts and for extraordinary public and media scrutiny in the state with the singular status of unusually close elections.“The recounts will be nationally watched … [we’re] under a...

    Full title: FL SEN: Something Very Odd (And In Violation Of State Law) Is Going On In These Two Democratic Counties Something odd is occurring in Florida’s Senate race. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has declared victory over incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. At the time, Scott led Nelson by a little over 34,500 votes. It’s now been cut to around 18,000. We’re heading into recountterritory, as Scott’s lead has swindled to 0.2 percent; less than half of one percent triggers an automatic recount. Yet, in two Democratic bastions—Palm Beach and Broward counties—they’re taking their sweet time counting the votes and...

    Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin should not attend an upcoming investment conference in Saudi Arabia amid an ongoing investigation into the country's possible involvement in the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who went missing earlier this month in Turkey. "I don't think he should go," Rubio told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union," adding that he doesn't think any US officials should continue with their usual business in Saudi Arabia until Washington gets to the bottom of Khashoggi's disappearance. "I don't think any of our government officials should be going and pretending...

    Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said President Trump must respond with more than “just words” if Saudi Arabia is found to be behind the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi or it would undermine the United States’ reputation as a champion of human rights. “I’m glad the president didn’t tie his hands in terms of exactly what we are going to do. But it needs to be very strong and meaningful, it can’t be symbolic, it can’t just be words,” the Florida lawmaker said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Trump has threatened “severe consequences” against Saudi Arabia but hasn’t gone...

    But Rubio is also at risk of online censorship - SEPTEMBER 5, 2018 Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was either clueless or just playing dumb about Big Tech censorship of conservatives, neither of which reflects well on a Republican senator. Outside a Senate committee hearing, Rubio said he wanted to prevent “foreign interference in US elections,” yet when radio host Alex Jones pointed out that thousands of conservatives were being shadow banned by Big Tech, with the implication that it’s election interference against Republicans inside the US, Rubio acted as if he had no idea what was going on.
