Eight Republican senators joined Democrats to limit President Trump’s powers on Iran. They are Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Todd Young of Indiana, and Mike Lee of Utah.

Basically, these GOP members of the upper chamber are generally the usual suspects when it comes to going against Trump. Here’s what’s up, via Daily Wire:

On Thursday, 55 senators, including eight Republicans, voted for a resolution that would force President Trump to obtain permission from Congress before ordering military action against Iran.

The Washington Post noted, “Trump will almost certainly veto the measure once it passes the House, and neither chamber of Congress has the votes to override that veto, lawmakers say.” That is because the 55 votes fall short of a supermajority needed to override a presidential veto.

Florida Governor Makes Good on Promise to Pardon COVID ‘Criminals’

There is justice in The Sunshine State.

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made it very, very clear that The Sunshine State is not, and was not ever, in favor of curbing Americans’ freedoms on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Sure, there were some locales, (like Miami), who imposed curfews and other measures meant to crack down on some of the over partying during Spring Break, but even those moves were given the side-eye by DeSantis. Now the Florida leader is taking this sentiment a step farther. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s Clemency Board granted pardons Wednesday for Floridians with lingering fines issued for violating mask mandates implemented by local governments. “This action is necessary so that we can recover, have a good transition to normal operations, and also just a recognition that a lot of this stuff was way, way overboard,” DeSantis said. Democratic candidate for governor Nikki Fried was the only member on the board to oppose the pardons, according to local news outlet Fox 13. “I voted today to uphold our laws, while our so-called pro-law enforcement governor is actively encouraging people to break the law with politically motivated stunts like this,” Fried said in a statement following a Wednesday clemency board meeting. DeSantis is widely believed to have grander political aspirations, and this high-profile declaration of liberty is undoubtedly going to benefit his PR strategy as well.

Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous. Biden is demanding that Americans be on the look-out for “radicalized” behavior and to call the police when they think they see it. Of course, by “radicalized,” he means being conservative and white. In a recent conversation with the press, a senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it spreads. The teleconference discussion was posted to the White House website. “We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said according to the White House posting. The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility. “This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends, or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official added. But instead of Islamic terror, Biden thinks we have to worry about evil white people. As Breitbart News reminded us all: Biden began his presidency with a stark warning in his inauguration speech about the “rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront, and we will defeat.” On June 1, Biden described the threat from “white supremacy” as the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.” The Biden administration said it would also work with large technology companies on “increased information sharing” to help combat radicalization. “Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well,” the official noted. “But the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the…
