Agree or Disagree with those Republicans who wish to restrict War Powers back to the Congress?

Over the past year we’ve watched the American Left start destroying each other from within through increasingly more stringent “purity” tests. Such was also the case during the French Revolution.

In the past few days, some prominent Republicans like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Matt Gaetz are adamant that the ability to go to war should return to being solely under the purview of the Congress, as is clearly stated in the Constitution.

On the surface, President Trump appears to be angry over this but some are suggesting that this may not be the case.

Most interested in your thoughts about this.

Jean qui?

Jean Charest looks set to run for leader of the federal Conservatives:

Former Quebec premier Jean Charest is keeping his powder dry but those who have spoken to him are under no illusions – he is in as a contender for the federal Conservative leadership, with his official announcement expected later this month.

Former political adversaries are already using their bully pulpits to take a pop at him. Former Parti Québécois cabinet minister Joseph Facal wrote a barbed attack Tuesday in Le Journal de Montréal that suggested Charest is addicted to the political jousting, the exercise of power, the limelight and the adrenaline but has little to offer beyond personal ambition.

Anti-trade extremists.

Trade is the life-blood of any nation, state, town or shopkeeper. Being against free and fair trade is anathema to a healthy economy. That damned freak with the hair did it again, sabotaging opportunities for markets.
What? Oh. Well, who do you think I’m talking about?
Ironic that one of the reasons being shopped around is because of Quebec politics, cough, Bombardier.

Up in the air.

I’m a little torn about this story.

While conducting a welfare check, police found Macke’s four children – two 12-year-olds, a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old — alone.
Police discovered that Macke left the U.S. a day earlier and wasn’t set to return until Oct. 1, the Register reported. She did not arrange any supervision for the children, authorities said.

On one hand I firmly believe that two twelve-year old kids should be more than capable of taking care of themselves and two younger children for a week.
On the other hand is the qualification in the previous sentence, should be.
On the gripping hand is the unstated question…how in the heck did a welfare case with four children get the money to go to Europe for a week?

Umm, Okay.

The award, created in 1989, is given to a public official or group of public servants from any level of government each year “whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of ‘Profiles in Courage,'”
Sure, if causing the Democratic Party to get destroyed at every elected level is courageous, and then to have President Trump and the Congress roll-back every single plank of your supposed legacy qualifies as ‘courage’.
At least the Americans waited until he’d done something to give him an award, unlike the Norwegians.
