From Fox News:

The bill to dump the traditional holiday passed through the state legislature in Montpelier on Wednesday and is now on the governor’s desk waiting for a signature, the Burlington Free Press reported.

[…]

Alaska passed an “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” resolution in 2017 but had never officially recognized Columbus Day in the first place.

Scott noted, “I see no reason that I would not sign it, but we’re reviewing the bill as we speak.

He added, “I know it’s controversial from many standpoints, from many people, but you know, it’s just a day, and we’ll get through it. And we’ve been treating it as something different over the last couple of years through resolutions. Without any technical difficulties within the bill, I’ll probably sign it.

If people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) keep getting elected to Congress, things will get pretty rough for America very fast.

After AOC and other Democrats called on cities to no longer recognize Columbus Day, one listened.

From The Hill:

Officials in the city of Sandusky, Ohio, have decided that the city will no longer observe Columbus Day as a holiday, switching it for Election Day.

[…]

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has advocated for making the change nationally. And a November survey from Hill.TV and HarrisX polling company found that a majority of respondents favor making Election Day a federal holiday.

Ocasio-Cortez had a question about “election day” and “Columbus Day” that she can’t seem to figure out on her own.

Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.

Good News: Jobless Claims Drop to 751,000, Which Is A New Pandemic Low

Published

on

Good news in the realm of economics as the number of new applications for unemployment benefits dropped down to 751,000 last week, according to a new report from the Labor Department. This is a the lowest numbers we’ve seen since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The number of actual claims was lower than the 770,000 predicted by economists. via Washington Examiner: Additionally, states reported 359,667 initial claims for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, a new category of eligibility created by the March CARES Act that provides benefits for workers sidelined by the pandemic, such as gig workers whose work dried up. Altogether, then, around 1.1 million workers filed for benefits. Thursday’s release indicates that the labor market is healing, if slowly, but that the situation remains extremely bad by historical standards. In comparison, prior to the pandemic, weekly claims had been running close to 200,000. Another point of comparison would be that weekly claims now are still worse than they were at the depths of the Great Recession in 2009. The total number of people claiming benefits in all programs for the week ending Oct. 10 was more than 22 million. Last year, in the comparable week, that number was 1.4 million. This is fantastic news for our country. We’re finally on the road to recovery after this extremely difficult year. Now, if only we could get folks to stop panicking needlessly about COVID-19 and fighting to keep lockdowns going perpetually, that would be most excellent. While the virus that swept the globe was definitely real and nothing to laugh at, much of the science points to the reaction to the illness being just as bad, if not worse, than the disease itself. Lockdowns almost completely destroyed the economy. The left was thrilled by this because it took away one of…

Tucker Carlson: ‘Damning’ Evidence Against Hunter Biden ‘Vanished’ After Being Sent To Me

Sounds peculiar!

During his Wednesday evening show, Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell regarding the Biden crime family. No need to chit-chat. Let’s just get right into it. From Fox News: Tucker didn’t describe the documents other than to say they were damning, and that they came from a new source and related to the Biden crime family. Tucker received word that the documents had been sent to him while he was in LA interviewing Tony Bobulinski for yesterday’s blockbuster interview. He asked his producer in New York to send them to him as quick as he could. Tucker said they used a very comment package courier, one that we would all be familiar with, but that the document never arrived.
