    Sarah Palin @SarahPalinUSA: Politicians wonder why we can't trust them? Campaign flip-flops like this and carve-out bribes in the Amnesty... http://fb.me/2IsL1uspC Palin’s tweet links to a story from TownHall.com detailing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (D-Fla.) flip-flop over amnesty for illegal immigrants. During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty. Rubio, who won that 2010 election, is now the leading Republican in the U.S. Congress pushing for illegal aliens to...

    For over a year and a half, I have focused on our GOP -- its key players who are indeed our enemies, the endless steering and manipulation of the election process, and the corruption of Tea Party candidates. Rove's shenanigans are being exposed, and Marco Rubio's association with him should attract our attention, because it is marking his departure from "the people". It is important to note that he defended Rove and the American Crossroads group's project to find the most "conservative" electable candidates. In a one-on-one interview with The Brody File recently, Rubio said: "They both have a place...

    For conservatives who oppose the Gang of Eight immigration bill championed by Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), yesterday was their day to proclaim their disagreement loud and clear. In a “press conference” that quickly turned into a rally, Representative Steve King (R., Iowa) urgently made the case that immigration legislation was being steamrolled too quickly through the House and Senate. “I kind of like a microphone that has some volume to it,” he jovially told the crowd, which would grow to include hundreds of tea partiers over the next couple of hours. He decried the proposed legislation as being “at...
  • Rubio Flips Again, Helps Sink Biometric Visa Tracking Amendment

    The Senate voted down an amendment to the upper chamber's immigration bill proposed by Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) that would require a full biometric visa tracking system placed at every land, sea, and air port of entry in the United States before legalized immigrants could receive green cards. The measure, which was also called for by the 9/11 Commission in the wake of the 2001 terrorist attacks, would establish a biometric exit-entry system. Gang of Eight member Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) told Breitbart News last week that the tracking system was the "lynchpin to the whole bill." In May, he...
  • Ex-Obamacare foe Gov. Rick Scott waves white flag on Medicaid expansion

    When the history of President Obama’s drive for national health care is written, there are several moments that will be looked back upon as having cemented the law in place. There were “conservative” Democrats Ben Nelson and Bart Stupak dropping their objections to Obamacare to get the legislation across the finish line. There was Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the Supreme Court’s liberals to uphold the constitutionality of the law. There was President Obama’s reelection victory, which crushed any feasible path to full repeal. On Thursday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s delivered yet another blow to opponents to Obamacare by...

    Former Sen. Scott Brown said Friday he would not run in a special Senate election in Massachusetts, dealing a setback to Republican hopes of winning the seat being vacated by Secretary of State John Kerry. Brown, who electrified his party with an upset win in a 2010 special election but lost his re-election bid in November, ended weeks of intense speculation about his future with a written statement announcing his decision. … GOP officials in Washington and Massachusetts widely considered Brown the strongest possible Republican candidate in a state that traditionally favors Democrats. With Brown out of the running, potential...
