Even many Democrats now have had enough of Joe Biden’s COVID “emergency” extensions.
According to Becker News, 12 Democrats in the U.S. Senate, and one independent who aligns with Democrats, have voted against extending Biden’s designation further.
Biden recently had demanded that that status be continued until April 2023, but in the Senate, a vote of 62-36 said it should end.
The move was led by Sen. Roger Marshall, a Republican from Kansas, and got support from all of his party.
The report noted, “While it is unclear if the House of Representatives will immediately take up the measure, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now on borrowed time. Her tenure at the top of Congressional leadership is set to come to an end on January 3, 2023 with the projected incoming Republican-led House.”
Democrats joining in the effort to curtail Biden’s power were John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Tim Kaine of Virginia, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Chris Murphy of Connecticut, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Jon Tester of Montana, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, Mark Warner of Virginia, Sen. Cortez-Masto of Nevada, Jacky Rosen of Nevada and Chuck Schumer, of New York.
Maine’s Angus King is the independent.

The “emergency” declaration, extended 90 days at a time, has been used in various ways to suspend the law for nearly three years.
Biden has used it as a pretext for suspending student loan payments, imposing a rent moratorium, and he is demanding that his powers be continued, with his threat to veto any move to end that authority.
The Centers for Disease Control say more than 95% of Americans have some form of protection now from COVID, and the new strains are far less deadly that the original.
Also, an estimated 97% of Americans have natural immunity from a prior infection.
Biden, however, still is asking for another $10 billion to hand out as he wishes, according to the Washington Post.
According to the Washington Examiner, Biden wants the special powers the executive has through the designation to run well into next year.
It had been set to expire on Jan. 11.
Reports suggest that the government needs time “to offload responsibility for COVID-19 vaccines, tests, antiviral treatments” and more to private corporations.
All of those agendas points have been paid for by American taxpayers since the outbreak began, apparently at a lab that makes viruses more dangerous in Wuhan, China.
The Examiner reported, “The Biden administration signaled earlier this year that it would begin figuring out how to transfer key tasks to the private sector, meeting with drugmakers, pharmacies, and other stakeholders in the healthcare industry in late August to discuss how to begin the commercialization process, though the transition has been slow to get off its feet.”
Biden himself, already has declared that the pandemic is “over.”
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., and Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Ky., have noted that the administration lacks the justification for a longer “emergency.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
