Great move!

It seems as though a lot of Democrats are having buyer’s remorse, at the moment. Makes sense. They had to have known that Joe Biden wasn’t a man of his word.

Lest we forget, Joe claims to be a pro-choice Catholic. Right there, alone, lefties should know the man is a goof.

From Breitbart:

A bipartisan group of U.S. Senators — led by Todd Young (R-IN) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) — introduced legislation Wednesday that would strip President Joe Biden of war powers by repealing both the 1991 and 2002 authorizations for the use of military force (AUMF) in the Middle East.

The move comes in response to Biden’s recent airstrikes in eastern Syria, which were launched without congressional approval. The decision to launch the strike followed the shelling of an Iraqi military base that houses U.S. troops. The rocket attack left one civilian contractor dead and nine others wounded. A U.S. service member was among those hurt.

“Last week’s airstrikes in Syria show that the executive branch, regardless of party, will continue to stretch its war powers,” Kaine, a member of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement obtained by Politico. “Congress has a responsibility to not only vote to authorize new military action, but to repeal old authorizations that are no longer necessary.”

Theater where Pres. Lincoln was Shot Blasted for Tweet Dismissing His Legacy

Apparently Ford’s Theater — the place where President Lincoln was assassinated — thinks we need to knock him off his pedestal.

You know President Abraham Lincoln, the guy who freed the slaves, right? Well, apparently Ford’s Theater — the place where he was assassinated — thinks we need to knock Lincoln off his pedestal.

That’s right, the place that is only famous and a historic landmark because of Lincoln thinks Lincoln needs to be knocked down a few pegs.

This is just another example of leftists getting ahold of our historic landmarks and trying to undermine our history.

On Sept. 18, historic Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C. tweeted this:

Do you ever feel we, as a nation, put Abraham Lincoln “on a pedestal”?

What do you think might be a more useful, more complex, or more realistic way to think about or memorialize the 16th president?

(Screen shot below in case they try to delete it, but it was still live as of the posting of this article.)

That’s right, we need to be “more useful” in how we think about Lincoln. We need to know him off that pedestal.

And these people claim to be concerned about history!

Looks more like they are going woke.

New data finds that 60 percent of the businesses that shut down for COVID mitigation will be closed permanently and won’t be coming back.

New data from Yelp shows the terrible state of affairs, according to CNBC.

Yelp on Wednesday released its latest Economic Impact Report, revealing business closures across the U.S. are increasing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic’s economic toll.

As of Aug. 31, some 163,735 businesses have indicated on Yelp that they have closed. That’s down from the 180,000 that closed at the very beginning of the pandemic. However, it actually shows a 23% increase in the number of closures since mid-July.
In addition to monitoring closed businesses, Yelp also takes into account the businesses whose closures have become permanent. That number has steadily increased throughout the past six months, now reaching 97,966, representing 60% of closed businesses that won’t be reopening.

“Overall, Yelp’s data shows that business closures have continued to rise with a 34% increase in permanent closures since our last report in mid-July,” Justin Norman, vice president of data science at Yelp, told CNBC.

Congratulations Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, and the entire Democrat establishment for destroying most of the country with you ineffective, unscientific lockdowns.
