    A Vermont man says he was stabbed outside his home by a group of five masked men armed with box cutters on Tuesday, after being labeled a “Nazi sympathizer” for denouncing attempts to ruin the life of a Unite the Right rally attendee — even though he himself strongly disavows white supremacy.

    Ben & Jerry’s ice cream had to figure it would be one of the last firms in America to come under attack from the liberal misinformation complex. It has created flavors to honor Democrat politicians, contributed to Democrat campaigns and positioned itself well to the left on social and employment issues. It has cultivated an image of the “good capitalist,” which can create jobs, lead in its field and do it all in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. But when there became a bigger fish to fry, all the loyalty the company thought it had earned suddenly dried up....

    Don't look now, but your local school library soon could be getting into the liberal indoctrination racket. School librarians have taken it upon themselves to teach students how to identify fake news. They say they do this by helping them understand the CRAAP that comes their way. CRAAP, which stands for Currency (timeliness), Relevance (importance), Authority (source), Accuracy (reliability) and Purpose (reason), "helps students sort through the overwhelming flood of digital information," according to a recent story in USA TODAY. "These are the questions we have to introduce these ideas to kids before they think they know everything," Shannon Walters,...

    In between shifts Monday afternoon, 13 Vermont State Police troopers, outfitted in beige and green, tentatively discussed their preferred pronouns. "Bob," said Sgt. Bob Lucas. "Uh, 'he.'" "I'm Steve. I go by 'he,'" said Trooper Steve DiGregorio, a youthful officer. "My name is Andy," said Cpl. Andy Leise, the only one who seemed at ease during the exercise. "I like to be referred to as 'he.'" Spoiler alert: All 13 were "cis" — identifying with the gender assigned to them at birth. The officers sat in mismatched swivel chairs in the windowless office of a converted warehouse that serves as...
  • FBI probe of Bernie Sanders' wife closely tracks Hillary's secret campaign plan

    07/14/2017 9:38:49 AM PDT · by Strac6 · 24 replies
    Sen. Bernie Sanders’ claims that an ongoing FBI probe of his wife is based on partisan politics don’t square with the fact that it began under President Obama and appears to closely track Hillary's opposition research. The FBI and U.S. Attorney in Vermont are investigating Jane O’Meara Sanders in a failed $10 million college land deal that she orchestrated. John Podesta, the Clinton team wrote an extensive political opposition memo entitled “Sanders Top Hits-Thematics. Members of the lending agency expressed concern that if O’Meara Sanders was not involved, the loan would not have been approved.” The opposition research also highlighted...

    Vermont resident Jon Svitavsky announced on July 5 that he is challenging Sen. Bernie Sanders in his upcoming re-election in 2018. In his most recent race for re-election, Sanders won over 71 percent of the vote and the Democratic Party didn’t bother to run a candidate. In the 2016 presidential primaries, Sanders received over 86 percent of the vote in Vermont. Among the small percentage of people who voted for Hillary Clinton in the state was Svitavsky, a homeless shelter director who is beginning to receive support from other disgruntled Clinton supporters across the country. In October 2016, Politico ran...

    Here's a walk-through of the background events that have led to this point. Bernie Sanders met Jane O'Meara in 1981, when Sanders was still the mayor of Burlington, and the two were married in 1988. In 2004, Mrs. Sanders took over as the president of Burlington College, a small liberal arts college that had a student body that normally floated around 200 students. Prior to that, she had served briefly as the acting president of her alma mater, Goddard College. A real estate deal initiated during Mrs. Sanders' time at Burlington College is the crux of the problems and resulting...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders’s wife has been accused of heartlessly trying to boot disabled group home residents when she was president of a Vermont college and closed on a real estate deal now under FBI scrutiny. The home with 16 residents was on property Jane O’Meara Sanders purchased for Burlington College in 2010 as part of an expansion project, the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch claimed Thursday. Reports this week say Sanders is under FBI investigation in connection with her role in securing financing for the project which didn’t pan out and led to the college’s closure.

    Complete Headline: Sen.

    The American Thinker ^ | 06/29/17 | William F. Marshall
    "The road to hell is paved with good intentions," goes the line so often used to describe hare-brained liberal schemes. That vintage phrase captures perfectly the quagmire in which Bernie and Jane Sanders find themselves rapidly sinking in the saga of Burlington College. But the tale provides so much more than affirming that age-old aphorism. It offers a microcosmic view into the mind and methodology of liberal policymakers everywhere. In short, the scheme concocted by the former Democratic Socialist presidential candidate's wife, Jane Sanders, when she was president of Burlington College serves up everything we've come to expect of modern...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders didn’t mince words on Tuesday when asked about the FBI’s investigation into his wife — calling it a “pathetic” and politically motivated attack, spurred by President Trump. “My wife is about the most honest person I know,” the Vermont lawmaker told CNN. “All that I will tell you now is it’s a sad state of affairs in America when not only we have politicians being destroyed… but when you go after people’s wives. That’s pretty pathetic,” he said.

    While one deal struck by Jane O’Meara Sanders during her time as Burlington College’s president has triggered a federal investigation, another arrangement she engineered is breeding claims of nepotism and allegations of veiled threats against her husband’s presidential campaign. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders, is facing criticism over a “sweetheart deal” granted to a school founded by her daughter while president of the now-defunct Burlington College. Carol Moore, who served as the final president of the college from 2014 until its closure in May 2016, says Jane Sanders approved a deal for the college with Vermont Woodworking School...

    MONTPELIER, Vt. — Scores of dairy farm workers and activists marched Saturday on a Ben & Jerry’s factory to push for better pay and living conditions on farms that provide milk for the ice cream maker that takes pride in its social activism. Protesters said Ben & Jerry’s agreed two years ago to participate in the so-called Milk with Dignity program, but the company and worker representatives have yet to reach an agreement. “We can’t wait any more. We are going to pressure them and see what happens,” said Victor Diaz, a Mexican immigrant now working on a farm in...

    Middlebury College has disciplined 67 students after its investigation into the disruption of a March 2 lecture by controversial author Charles Murray, the school announced Tuesday. The sanctions range "from probation to official college discipline, which places a permanent record in the student’s file," the school said in a statement. Murray attempted to lecture in the McCullough Student Center about his 2012 book, Coming Apart. Murray is better known for his 1994 book, The Bell Curve, which sought to correlate social inequality to genetics. The Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled his work "racist pseudoscience."
