    <p>Speaking of super duper people, how about that Lisa Bloom, huh? What a gal, amiright? Man, has she been in the news a lot lately. First, she agrees to represent the detestable Harvey Weinstein and gets caught peddling damaging information on accuser Rose McGowan, not to mention allegations that she and Weinstein were offering bribes to some of his victims to stay quiet.</p>

    Sen. Marco Rubio on Thursday said he will vote against the final GOP tax bill unless leaders meet his demands on the child tax credit. Rubio told Republican leadership that he will not vote for the bill — the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) — unless the child tax credit is more generous. "Senator Rubio has consistently communicated to the Senate tax negotiators that his vote on final passage would depend on whether the refundability of the Child Tax Credit was increased in a meaningful way," a Rubio spokesperson told Business Insider. Rubio introduced an amendment during the first...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has threatened to vote against the tax bill, putting the legislation in danger of being delayed past Christmas. Rubio has told Senate leaders that he will vote against the bill unless the child tax credit is made more generous to help lower-income workers who pay payroll taxes and not regular income taxes. “Sen. Rubio has consistently communicated to the Senate tax negotiators that his vote on final passage would depend on whether the refundability of the Child Tax Credit was increased in a meaningful way,” said a spokesperson for Rubio. If Rubio votes against the bill,...

    As immigrant advocacy groups rallied outside Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart’s offices in Doral Monday, protesters say a U.S. Customs and Border Protection truck circled around the group. “@ICEgov just sent a truck to intimidate the dreamers fasting outside of the offices of Senator @marcorubio and Congressman @MarioDB. #CleanDreamAct #DreamActNow,” posted Florida Immigrant Coalition’s Tomas Kennedy. The protest was organized to demand the protection for Dreamers, those who were brought by their families to the United States as children even though they were undocumented immigrants. Many of those participating— some elderly — launched a week-long hunger strike...

    GOP strategist Mike Murphy appeared on Meet The Press today to discuss the current state of Donald Trump's presidency and the issue of trust. The self-described "infuriated," "TV blabbermouth" slammed President Trump for fomenting "chaos." The panel breaks down whether distrust is becoming the norm in the Trump era - "We are living through the first screwball presidency in American history," @murphymike says on #MTP“We’re living through the first screwball presidency in American history, where there’s careening from one side to another, you don’t really know who is in charge, the internal politics are crazy," said Murphy.

    Florida Senator Marco Rubio admits that the Republican tax cut plan to aid corporations and the wealthy will require cuts to Social Security and Medicare to pay for it. Rubio told reporters this week that in order to address the federal deficit, which will grow by at least $1 trillion if the tax plan passes, Congress will need to cut entitlement programs such as Social Security. Advocates for the elderly and the poor have warned that entitlement programs would be on the chopping block, but this is the first time a prominent Republican has backed their claims. “We have to...

    Sub-headline: Florida’s Republican tries to blow up the Senate tax reform. The GOP is pushing forward on tax reform, though a receiving line of Republican holdouts are slow-rolling progress. One who deserves special mention is Marco Rubio, who contributed nothing to ObamaCare repeal and now aspires to dilute the tax bill.On Wednesday Mr. Rubio and his political sidecar, Mike Lee of Utah, announced that they’ll file an amendment to the tax bill to change the $2,000 child tax credit. They want to make the credit refundable up to a person’s payroll tax liability, among other expensive tweaks. To pay for...

    President Trump interrupted his speech Wednesday on his Asia trip a couple of times to drink from a bottle of Fiji water — and Sen. Marco Rubio said his drinking game needs some work. When Mr. Rubio, Florida Republican, gave the Republican response to then-President Obama’s State of the Union speech in 2013 — his first big moment in the national spotlight — he interrupted his speech to drink some water. The moment became an internet phenomenon and widely snarked at, a history that led Fox News producer Pat Ward to copy Mr. Rubio on his tweet of the Trump...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) attended a fundraiser for Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) on Monday in a bid to support his 2018 Senate reelection campaign against challenger Kelli Ward.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    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... Whereas, in 2015, hate crimes targeting Muslims in the United States...

    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...
