    Former President Donald Trump, in an announcement made through the Save America PAC Friday, gave Sen. Marco Rubio his endorsement for the Florida Republican's 2022 Senate bid for reelection. "It is my honor to give U.S. Senator Marco Rubio my Complete and Total Endorsement," Trump said in the statement provided to Newsmax Friday morning. "Marco has been a tireless advocate for the people of Florida, fighting to cut taxes, supporting our Second Amendment, our Military and our Vets, a strong national defense, and all of the forgotten men and women of America." He added that Rubio "worked with me to...

    Read Ed’s post yesterday for background on this odd, unprincipled, but era-befitting stance from Rubio, which he’s now pushing in online videos. Dan Foster ably summarized his position with the infamous words of Oscar Benavides: “For my friends, everything. For my enemies, the law.” Rubio’s spent the four and a half months since Election Day crowing that Trump’s gains among minorities mean the GOP is now a multiracial, multiethnic working-class party. A pro-union stance would be in keeping with that. But his stance isn’t pro-union; it’s anti-woke with unionization as a cudgel. He *could* take a principled pro-labor position by...
  • Marco Rubio Backs Amazon Workers’ Union Push, Citing ‘Culture War Against Working-Class Values’ (subscription)

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) voiced his support for a union-organizing drive at an Inc. warehouse in Alabama, accusing the e-commerce giant of waging a culture war that hurts its workers and the economy. In an op-ed article in USA Today on Friday, Mr. Rubio said that adversarial relations between workers and companies could harm the country’s competitiveness. But he said he would support employees “when the conflict is between working Americans and a company whose leadership has decided to wage culture war against working-class values.” “The days of conservatives being taken for granted by the business community are...

    Sen. Marco Rubio is urging President Biden to seek “training on unconscious bias” after using the term “Neanderthal” to criticize Republican governors who ended COVID-19 mask mandates. The Florida Republican humorously described the word as a “stereotype” and noted Thursday that many people of Eurasian ancestry descend from the extinct hominid species.

  • Failed Presidential Candidate, Marco Rubio, Introduces Gun Control For Anyone Ever Investigated For ‘Domestic Terrorism’

    Marco Rubio, what happened to you? You used to be a good little Republican, but now you’ve gone and aimed your sights against our Constitution. Failed presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio introduced legislation that would strip the Second Amendment rights of any individual who was simply investigated for domestic terrorism, even if they were not charged or convicted for committing an actual crime. Take a moment to consider what this means under a Biden Presidency. On February 2, Rubio reintroduced the bill he has been pushing since the Orlando Pulse radical Islamic terrorist attack in 2016. The bill calls for...

    Republican Senator for Florida Marco Rubio on Sunday declined to speculate on rumors that former US president Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, may challenge him for his seat in 2022, saying only that anyone seeking to take his position in the Senate will face a “tough race.” Speaking to Fox News, Rubio also said that trying the former president in the Senate would be counterproductive and like “pouring gasoline on the fire.” Ivanka Trump, a former senior adviser to the president, is said to be considering a run for office and rumors were given a further boost after she and her...

    Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Sunday called the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump “stupid” and “counterproductive”. In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Rubio said “we already having a flaming fire in this country, and it’s like take a bunch of gasoline and pouring it on top of the fire.” “First of all, I think the trial is stupid. It’s counterproductive," Rubio declared. "Second, I look back at a time, for example, Richard Nixon, who had clearly committed crimes and wrongdoing, and in hindsight I think we would all agree that President Ford’s pardon was important for the...

    Republican Senator and Florida man Marco Rubio went on a Twitter rant Sunday to accuse Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease specialist, of lying about coronavirus in general and masks in particular. “Dr. Fauci lied about masks in March,” Rubio tweeted Sunday morning. “Dr. Fauci has been distorting the level of vaccination needed for herd immunity. It isn’t just him. Many in elite bubbles believe the American public doesn’t know ‘what’s good for them’ so they need to be tricked into ‘doing the right thing.’ "

    The 2021 omnibus bill sends coronavirus aid checks to “mixed-status” families that include illegal migrant spouses and Americans. The expansion was pushed by Democrats and some GOP legislators, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC). CBS reported: Under the agreement, U.S. citizens and green card holders will be able to receive $600 in direct aid, even if they filed a joint tax return with an undocumented spouse, as well as additional $600 checks per dependent child, according to congressional aides and the text of the legislation.

    Top Senate Republicans are signaling support for keeping Director Gina Haspel atop the CIA amid speculation that President Trump could fire her out of frustration about some of her decisions related to the Russia investigation. Speculation about Haspel's future has reached a fever pitch amid concerns in Washington that the ousting of Defense Secretary Mark Esper could foretell a larger post-election shakeup. But top GOP senators are signaling that they don't think there's a reason for Trump to fire Haspel, outside of his own personal preference.
