    Rarely has our nation seen a judge more competent and qualified to serve on the Supreme Court than Amy Coney Barrett. During her confirmation hearing, she held me in thrall with the magnificence of her mind. Only once before has anyone inspired the thought, "Greatness walks amongst us." His name is Trey Gowdy. In Amy Coney Barrett, I feel the same awe and chills once again. With Amy's confirmation, Lady Justice will no longer peek from underneath her blindfold. No longer will there be a finger surreptitiously pushing down on one side of her Scales of Justice. When Barrett's Senate...

    Federal authorities are investigating after a car drove across the U.S.— Canada border illegally, by crashing through a Vermont man's yard. Alain De La Bruere's home security cameras captured the incident Saturday morning as the car drove across the border from Stanstead, Quebec, and right into his yard. "I just couldn't believe it. It's like it doesn't — I always look for wild game, it's always kinda neat to see the deer, different wild game crossing over but I never expected right at 10:30 in the morning, somebody trying to break through the border," De La Bruere said. The Derby,...
  • Legislation in Vermont Would Give Free Condoms to Kids as Young as 11-Years-Old

    A new Vermont law, supported by the abortion chain Planned Parenthood, mandates that every middle and high school provide free condoms to students as young as 11. ADVERTISEMENT Fox News reports Republican Gov. Phil Scott signed the law Oct. 5 despite major concerns from parents and pro-lifers about sexual abuse of young children.“There should be concern when there is evidence that a child is engaged in a sexual relationship — such as when a 12-year old seeks out condoms,” said Sharon Toborg, a policy analyst for the Vermont Right to Life Committee. “Yet instead of strengthening efforts to identify children who are...

    Many of Vermont's streets and parks are now largely controlled by advocates of the BLM ideology. Note that these are not black people — these are white Vermont zealots who import out-of-state suffering by inner-city blacks to advance their Marxist platform against rural white Vermonters who are innocent of any wrongdoing. These are white BLM thugs, who demand that all laws bow before them. Happily, this errant effort is failing miserably in Vermont. The problem with witch-hunting arises when one lacks witches. In Vermont, there are essentially zero white supremacist groups, zero swastikas, and only a few confederate flags. The...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not take kindly to Vice President Mike Pence referencing her and her famous moniker during Wednesday night’s vice presidential debate with Sen. Kamala Harris. While discussing differences between the Biden-Harris plan for combating climate change with that of the Green New Deal championed by Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), the vice president pointed out how Harris (D-Calif.) was an original co-sponsor of the bill when it came to the Senate floor.

    Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was humiliated after throwing a "rally" in support of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden that saw only a handful of people show up. Images of the event appear to show a small number of people scattered across an empty field filled with "Biden - Harris" signs.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is none too pleased with the direction of Joe Biden's bid for the White House. According to a report from earlier this month, Sen. Sanders has privately criticized the Democratic presidential nominee for being too moderate and failing to emphasize the progressive policies at the heart of his campaign. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., echoed Sanders's concerns in a recent interview. This supposed flap between Biden and some of his party's progressive luminaries is about style rather than substance. The former vice president's proposed policy agenda is further to the left than any Democratic nominee in American...

    Why is Mr. Biden not making more of an effort to distance himself from violent leftist radicals?To this point he’s been notable for going further than any Democratic nominee since George McGovern in 1972 in embracing nonviolent political radicals. For decades, leading Democrats blocked the anti-liberty advocate Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont from any influential role in policy making because the party and its voters embraced liberalism, not Marxism. Four years ago, Hillary Clinton defeated Mr. Sanders in a relatively close presidential nomination contest, but she never asked him to co-author her policy agenda. Long an admirer of the impoverished...

    On September 17, a King County Superior Court Judge ruled in favor of four articles of recall brought against Seattle’s socialist city councilmember Kshama Sawant. The recall campaign represents an attempt by the right wing and big business to overturn Kshama’s re-election last year and drive socialist politics out of Seattle City Hall. **SNIP** While the recall petition was officially filed by an individual resident of Kshama’s district, the language in it is notably all but identical to a public statement from Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan calling for the City Council to expel Kshama. **SNIP** This recall effort is above...

    Joe Biden pointed out that he beat 'a socialist' - a dig at his former rival Bernie Sanders - as he tried to tried to capture the vote of Florida's swing state voters with Cuban and Venezuelen roots. 'Look, I'm the guy that ran against a socialist,' Biden said at Monday night's NBC News town hall. 'Remember, I got in trouble with the whole campaign, 20-something candidates? Joe Biden was too centrist, too moderate, too straightforward. That was Joe Biden.' Biden's retort came the same day that Sanders was back on the campaign trail for the Biden-Harris ticket, stumping for...

    Democrats in 2016 demanded Senate Republicans "do their job" and give a hearing and vote to President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, in spite of it being a presidential election year. Obama, then-vice president Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, then-Senate minority leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) and Senate Democrats ripped Republicans, who were in control of the Senate, for their decision not to consider Garland. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.) said the Senate had approved judges as late as "September" in election years, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said the notion that Obama could not nominate a judge...

    An international team of scientists said Monday it had joined forces to combat the spread of anti-Semitism online with the help of artificial intelligence. The project Decoding Anti-Semitism includes discourse analysts, computational linguists and historians who will develop a "highly complex, AI-driven approach to identifying online anti-Semitism," the Alfred Landecker Foundation, which supports the project, said in a statement Monday. "In order to prevent more and more users from becoming radicalized on the web, it is important to identify the real dimensions of anti-Semitism - also taking into account the implicit forms that might become more explicit over time," said...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., expressed optimism that progressive Democrats can “likely” push Joe Biden further to the left if he’s elected president. She noted that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, is reportedly concerned that Biden is not far left enough, an assessment she said she agrees with. "We're different people, and clearly I, in the primary, one of the reasons why I was supportive of Senator Sanders was because of how progressive his stances are, but, you know, the primaries are over, and right now what is most important is to make sure that we ensure a Democratic victory in November...

    MONTPELIER, Vt. — Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, praised Vermont's ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic while also urging continued caution among residents. "This should be the model for the country — how you've done it," Fauci said during a briefing with state leaders Tuesday, "Notwithstanding that this is a small state, but it should be the model of how you get to such a low test positivity that you can actually start opening up the economy in a safe and prudent way." Fauci credited Vermonters for following public health guidelines presented by the Scott administration,...

    All but three Senate Democrats now openly support infanticide of babies who manage to be born alive despite an attempted abortion.  A total of 60 votes were needed to overcome a promised filibuster, and the measure gained only 53 votes.  But the field of presidential contenders from the Senate are now all on the record.  As the Washington Post notes: All of the announced 2020 Democratic presidential candidates — Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Kamala D. Harris (Calif.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — voted "no." Senator Ben Sasse's sponsorship of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and Mitch McConnell's...

    Kamala Harris, not basement-dwelling Joe Biden will travel to DC to deliver a counter to President Trump’s convention speech on Thursday. 77-year-old (almost 78) Joe Biden is too feeble to travel and campaign. ...... Snip....... Joe Biden actually believes he can win the 2020 election by staying home. Biden said in an interview with ABC News anchor David Muir that aired Sunday that he can beat President Trump by staying home and holding virtual campaign events. Biden also lashed out at President Trump for traveling and campaigning. That’s right. Biden, a presidential candidate, is attacking his opponent for traveling and...

First, my dad from Spain, then from Cuba,” Álvarez...
