    Earlier this year, Mid Vermont Christian School made headlines when they refused to participate in the state’s transvestite folly in women’s basketball. In standing firm in their faith by refusing to participate in a perverted male’s fetishistic delusions, the Vermont Principals’ Association banned the school from athletic tournaments. At the time, the school set an example of the willingness to sacrifice the little things, that being a high school women’s basketball game, rather than bend the knee to the spirit of the age, something most parents and schools acquiesce rather than fight. The decision of the VPA impacted athletic and...

    People who claimed “it doesn’t hurt you” or “why do you care?” were hoping that regular individuals would ignore the situation until it becomes too difficult to stop. The evidence of people being punished for not accepting the false idea is why regular people are concerned. High school girls’ basketball team deemed ineligible to play in future activities and tournaments after forfeiting game against team with transgender student-athlete A Vermont high school girls’ basketball team that withdrew from a tournament in February after refusing to play against a team that had a transgender player is no longer able to participate...

    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Monday to CBS News that Israel did not have a right “to kill 12,000 people in six, seven weeks” in response to the October 7 terror attack. Sanders said, “Well, this was how I respond. Look, Israel was attacked in an absolutely horrific way by Hamas, 1,300 innocent people were slaughtered. Israel has a right to defend itself, but what Israel does not have a right to do, in my view, is to kill 12,000 people in six, seven weeks, two-thirds of whom are women and children. That they don’t have right to do, that’s...

    Here we go again with the one-sided condemnations of Israel, which was viciously attacked by Hamas on Saturday. The assault claimed the lives of hundreds of Israelis, many of whom were civilians deliberately targeted by the organization’s operatives. After striking back, Israel began facing criticism from the left for defending itself. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) recently issued a statement echoing the same claptrap coming from his contemporaries. In his statement, Sanders criticized Hamas for its murderous rampage through the streets of Israel. “The gunning down of young Israelis at a music festival is an image the world will not soon...

    The College Fix ^ | 8/9/23 | Matt Lamb
    The estate of a donor to Middlebury College can sue to stop the de-naming of a chapel funded with his bequest, a Vermont judge ruled recently. Judge Robert Mello greenlighted the lawsuit on behalf of Governor John Mead’s estate. The estate, represented by former Vermont Governor James Douglas (pictured, left), argued that the school has a contractual obligation to keep “Mead” on the name of its memorial chapel, in the face of cancellation calls over Gov. Mead’s (pictured, right) alleged support for eugenics. The school removed Mead’s name in 2021. Judge Mello ruled that there was enough evidence to suggest...

    Widespread flooding is expected to continue saturating parts of New York through Monday, as videos emerged of heavy rain showers in Hudson Valley submerging vehicles and turning one roadway into a waterfall. Most of the heavy flooding will swamp areas north of the five boroughs — spanning from Albany to the Canadian border east along I-87, Fox Weather meteorologist Christopher Tate told The Post. “All of the rain is going to be funneling into the Champlain Valley in Vermont and causing a real problem for folks in Vermont and northeastern New York,” Tate told The Post.

    Sixteen- and 17-year-olds in one prominent Vermont town will be able to vote in local elections and serve on the community’s selectboard if elected, after the Democrat-controlled state Legislature overrode the Republican governor’s veto of the Brattleboro charter change.

Organizers of the push to lower the age in the southern Vermont town of Brattleboro say the community of 7,300 is the first one in the country where...
