U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine pushing to formally end the Gulf and Iraq wars
U.S. Senator Tim Kaine is among two legislators leading a bipartisan push to reassert Congress’ constitutional right to decide when the military is sent to war. “It’s time for Congress to start once again authorizing our Article I powers over war, peace and diplomacy,” the Virginia Democrat said Thursday during a virtual news conference. Kaine and Sen. Todd Young, R-Indiana, reintroduced a bill last week to repeal the 1991 and 2002 Authorizations for Use of Military Force and formally end the Gulf and Iraq wars. “War votes are hard, and if you can let the president make the call and take the heat, then why not let the president make the call and take the heat?” he said. But, the congressman said, that was not what the founding fathers intended.

Is This What Redemption Looks Like?
We pray for the ingathering of exiles, the rebuilding of Jerusalem, the return of Davidic rule, the restoration of the Temple service, and for peace. Is it really possible to say that these prayers have not been answered?

Microsoft ad network using foreign disinfo think tank to choke off conservative media outlets
Microsoft’s Xandr ad network used the findings of a foreign think tank about disinformation as a basis to block conservative media outlets from running ad campaigns on its platform. Xandr pounced on the disinformation risk list from the United Kingdom-based Global Disinformation Index (GDI) that assessed American online news outlets. Together with the Global Disinformation Laboratory (GDIL) at the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin), it reviewed 69 sources and indicated information about these on what it calls the “Dynamic Exclusion List.” In contrast, many left-leaning news outlets were deemed the least risky.
