From the Desk of Senator Mario Rubio

Note from Marco

Grassroots Leaders –

Skyrocketing inflation is affecting families across our nation. Prices on common goods haven’t been this high in over a decade, but Joe Biden’s administration refuses to accept any responsibility for this rising inflation.

Meanwhile, my liberal opponent, Val Demings, and her radical allies in Congress are continuing to push a $3.5 TRILLION socialist spending spree. We cannot allow Democrats to turn America into a Socialist country, which is exactly what will happen if we don’t stand up for what we believe in. My campaign released a video that you can share on FACEBOOK and TWITTER that highlights the danger to Florida families that Val Demings and this radical spending spree poses. Click on the links to watch, and then please share with your friends!

Next on the list of the Biden Administration’s failures is their handling of the immigration crisis on our Southern border. Under Kamala Harris’ failed leadership as Border Czar, illegal border crossings are up over 300%! I have repeatedly called on Joe Biden to REPLACE Harris as Border Czar, and instead install someone who actually understands the importance of stopping the flow of illegal immigrants. And in a show of total hypocrisy, this administration has decided foreigners legally traveling to the U.S. will need proof of vaccination and a negative Covid-19 test to enter, but foreigners illegally crossing the border do not need to be vaccinated or tested before being released into communities in Florida and around the country.

Last week I wrote an op-ed for Fox News explaining why John Kerry needs to be fired immediately from his job as Joe Biden’s Climate Czar. Reports have recently surfaced showing John Kerry taking upwards of $1 million dollars from a company profiting from slave labor in China. It’s inexcusable that the same people who pride themselves as social justice warriors decide to turn a blind eye to the very real human rights abuses happening at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party–and in John Kerry’s case, while profiting from them. John Kerry has been a staunch opponent of my Uyghur Forced Labor Act, which would make it impossible for products made with slave labor in Xinjiang to be imported into the United States. Now we know why. Read my full Op-Ed HERE.

Friend, we have a real campaign on our hands. The radical left continues to flood the state with cash to help my Pelosi Puppet opponent, Val Demings. Over the last few months, Val Demings brought in over $8 million from her national liberal donor network, an enormous sum which will give her the resources she needs to win in Florida. We can’t let that happen.

While Demings continues to rely on her base of national liberal donors, and is focused on raising woke money on Facebook, our best chance of fighting back is you, our grassroots supporters. To help us win this tough battle will you please sign up to volunteer and help deliver our positive message of results to voters? I need your help. Florida needs your help. Our great nation needs your help. Sign up HERE.

Thank you for your continued support!

Marco in the News
Op-Ed: It’s Time to Fire John Kerry, Biden’s Ethically Challenged Climate Czar
“Rumors have swirled in Washington about President Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry and his opposition to taking concrete action against the Chinese Communist Party’s use of slave labor. Now, we may have an answer about his reluctance to take action: according to a new report, Kerry and his wife have at least $1 million invested in a Chinese investment group called Hillhouse China Value Fund L.P…”

Op-Ed: Our Navy is 246 Years Old and More Important Than Ever
“America’s inability to secure global trade routes would be devastating to our nation and our people… a lot has changed over the past 246 years, but some things remain the same. While we are not under threat of invasion, America is more dependent on global trade than ever before…”

Dems Find Their Anti-Rubio Warrior in Val Demings
For months, the Florida congresswoman challenging Sen. Marco Rubio in 2022 seemed nowhere to be found…now Demings has an answer for her whereabouts: She was campaigning almost exclusively on Facebook, growing an army of small-dollar donors across the nation on her way to raising a staggering $8.5 million in the most recent fundraising quarter —$2.4 million more than Rubio reported and more than any Senate challenger in the country between July and October.
Joe Biden at Climate Change Summit
Op-Ed: Focused on Climate, Biden Ignores Slave Labor
“By nearly all accounts, the Biden administration is choosing to ignore the Chinese Communist Party’s egregious human rights abuses to strike a deal on climate. In other words, it is willing to accept Beijing’s use of arbitrary detention on an unimaginable scale, slave labor, systematic rape, coercive abortion, forced sterilization, organ harvesting, and more because, in Nancy Pelosi’s words, “climate is an overriding issue…”

Rubio Calls on Biden Administration to Blacklist Huawei Spin-Off Honor
Republican U.S. senators led by Marco Rubio on Thursday called on the Biden administration to blacklist Honor, a former unit of embattled Chinese telecoms giant Huawei, describing the firm as a threat to national security.

In a letter dated Thursday, seen by Reuters, Rubio described Honor as essentially an “arm” of the Chinese government with newly unfettered access the same prized U.S. technology currently denied to Huawei. The letter adds to a growing chorus of China hawks calling for the blacklisting.

Rubio Slams ‘Desperation’ Biden To Salvage Dead Iran Deal
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) lambasted the Biden administration’s “desperation” in pushing their failed efforts to revive the Iran Nuclear Deal with Iran, despite the Iranian regime’s countlessly snubbing the U.S. in their compliance refusal to resume indirect talks while they rapidly advance its nuclear programs in assembling a nuclear weapon.

China’s Latest COVID Cover-Up: Beijing Says It Will Test Thousands of Blood Samples in Hunt for Virus’s Origins
China is preparing to test thousands of blood samples from Wuhan taken in the early months of the pandemic – away from the eyes of outside observers in what many fear will become Beijing’s latest COVID cover-up. Since China alerted the world to a mysterious virus circulating in Wuhan in December 2019, a debate has been raging over its true source.

Florida Republicans Want Biden to Sanction Non-Cubans Who Do Business with the Regime
A group of Republicans in Congress wants to give the president widespread authority to sanction non-Cubans who do business with the country’s defense, security and intelligence sectors, the latest policy response from Washington after widespread pro-democracy protests in Cuba in July.

Miami’s entire Cuban-American contingent in Congress is backing the bill. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio and GOP U.S. Reps. Carlos Gimenez, Mario Diaz-Balart and Maria Elvira Salazar are co-sponsoring the legislation.

Townhall Op-Ed: Federal Policy Needs to Incentivize American-Made Vehicles to Create Jobs
“Some Republicans recently have embraced a working-class agenda to recapture those disaffected hard-working Americans, many who supported Donald Trump for president. They don’t care about the top line number of the plan, because they know they are not going to see that money. What they want are provisions that will create jobs.”

Rubio wrote, “When the conflict is between working Americans and a company whose leadership has decided to wage culture war against working-class values, the choice is easy — I support the workers.”

Rubio Advising Group Pushing for GOP Diversity, the ‘Right Leaders Network’

Its goal is “prioritizing electing more women, as well as candidates from communities of color and diverse backgrounds.” Leadership includes Sens. Marco Rubio and Tim Scott, as well as former U.N. Ambassador and ex-South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
