    Hillary Clinton has insinuated in a new book by an NBC News reporter that she believes her former 2016 Democratic primary rival Bernie Sanders is a sexist, remarking 'I know the kind of things that he says about women and to women.' Clinton made the remarks to NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Ali Vitali in her new book 'Electable: Why America Hasn’t Put a Woman In the White House … Yet.' In an excerpt published by Politico on Friday, the journalist recalls Clinton's comments that followed a widely televised heated clash between Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who were both...

    ARLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Alec Baldwin and his family have purchased a retreat in Vermont — a farmhouse and about 50 acres. The historic farmhouse, built before 1800, and a guest cottage rest on “50-something acres” and the property is “just gorgeous,” Faith Rhodes, principal broker and owner of Rhodes Real Estate, told the Bennington Banner. Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria, drew media interest when they visited last fall after a gun the actor was holding discharged, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on a New Mexico movie set. Baldwin contend it was a tragic accident. Also injured was the film’s director....
  • ‘A head-scratcher’: Vermont’s GOP voters nominate a surprising slate of candidates

    Even those who won Vermont’s Republican primary elections on Tuesday say they’re baffled by the results. In the race for U.S. Senate, GOP voters rejected former U.S. Attorney Christina Nolan, a moderate and institutional favorite, for Gerald Malloy, a Trump-aligned conservative. They nominated Sen. Joe Benning, an anti-Trump centrist, for lieutenant governor, intead of Gregory Thayer, who took part in the protests before the January 6 riots in Washington, D.C. And they turned down two conservative activists, Ericka Redic and Anya Tynio, in favor of a left-leaning independent, Liam Madden. “It's a head-scratcher to me,” Madden said of finding himself...

    Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard will host Tucker Carlson Tonight on Friday, which is a peculiar spot for a former lawmaker who not long ago presumably opposed much of what Fox News’ reliably conservative audience stands for. Tucker Carlson boasts the highest-rated show in cable news. In his absence this week, the network has relied on its bench to try and fill the void.

    Candidates endorsed by former President Donald J. Trump had another immaculate night in statewide and federal races Tuesday, just a day after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Mar-a-Lago. His endorsement record now stands at 192-11. Businessman Tim Michels, who served as a U.S. Army ranger for 12 years, beat out his opponent, Rebecca Kleefisch, for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in Wisconsin, Dave Wasserman of the Cook Report declared. As the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes, Trump endorsed Michels back in June. “Wisconsin needs a Governor who will Stop Inflation, Uphold the Rule of Law, strengthen our Borders (we had the...

    BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont Republicans gave Gerald Malloy a big win Tuesday night, edging out former U.S. Attorney for Vermont Christina Nolan in the GOP primary for the U.S. Senate. The three-way contest pitted Malloy, a right-leaning political newcomer, against Nolan, a GOP centrist endorsed by Gov. Phil Scott. The AP called the race with Malloy leading by a five-point margin. Malloy served 22 years in the Army and worked five years in emergency management for the federal government. The Perkinsville resident now works in business management supporting government organizations. He has said the economy needs a revamp and...

    MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy has undergone a second surgery to help repair a broken hip, his office said Wednesday. Leahy, 82, fell and broke his hip last month in his Virginia home. He underwent hip-replacement surgery June 30 at a Washington-area hospital. He was then moved to a rehabilitation center. On Wednesday, Leahy’s office said his surgeons found it necessary to perform an additional operation on the hip “to help advance his recovery.” Leahy was back in his rehabilitation room by Tuesday evening. He is working with physical therapists “to return home as soon as...

    SOUTH POMFRET, Vt. (AP) — A small ski area in Vermont has announced that it’s retiring its name, Suicide Six, this summer amid growing concerns about the insensitive nature of the historical name. The resort said on its website on Tuesday that it shares those concerns and “embraces the increasing awareness surrounding mental health.” “The feelings that the word ‘suicide’ evokes can have a significant impact on many in our community,” the resort statement said. A new name will be announced in the coming weeks for the ski area in South Pomfret, near Woodstock, which opened in 1936 and is...

The final legislation was a compromise on hunting regulation of coyotes and the use of suppressors for hunting.The amendment to remove the ban on hunting...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) looked to assure nervous Democrats that there are “a number of plans” to deal with a scenario in which President Trump loses the November election but refuses to leave office. Sanders, speaking to TV host Bill Maher Friday night, said it was of tantamount importance that liberals elect Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden but that Democrats will have contingency plans to remove Trump from office if he refuses to go. “The bottom line is, there are things that we have to do now to make sure that Biden wins. And if Trump attempts to stay in...

    President Joe Biden has opened the United States’ borders to about 44,000 Ukrainians in over two months — a foreign population exceeding Burlington, Vermont’s resident population. Since late March, Biden has welcomed about 22,000 Ukrainians at the U.S.-Mexico border, the latest Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data reveals. As Breitbart News exclusively reported, the administration has been releasing hundreds of Ukrainians into American communities via the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego, California.

    The 80-year-old Sen. Bernie Sanders has not ruled out running for president in 2024, should President Joe Biden not seek re-election. The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Sanders' 2020 Campaign Manager Faiz Shakir wrote a memo telling allies that the Vermont progressive would consider a third bid for the White House. 'In the event of an open 2024 Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Sanders has not ruled out another run for president, so we advise that you answer any questions about 2024 with that in mind,' Shakir wrote. The 79-year-old Biden has long said he'll run for re-election - though recent...

    Episode reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's collapse during failed 2016 campaign Citizens expressed concern Tuesday after footage emerged of a "visibly shaken" Elizabeth Warren clinging to a staffer's hand for dear life while attempting to walk several yards to a waiting vehicle. Even with the staffer's assistance, the Democratic lawmaker nearly stumbled on several occasions as reporters shouted questions about abortion. "Does she have Parkinson's or something?" a concerned American asked the Washington Free Beacon after viewing the footage of Warren. "Why does she need a staffer to hold her hand while walking?" The voting public deserves an honest answer. Warren,...

    California and 15 states that want the U.S. Postal Service to electrify its mail delivery vehicles are suing to halt purchases of thousands of gas-powered trucks as the agency modernizes its delivery fleet. Three separate lawsuits, filed Thursday by the states and environmental groups in New York and California, ask judges to order a more thorough environmental review before the Postal Service moves forward with the next-generation delivery vehicle program. Plaintiffs contend that purchases of fossil fuel-powered delivery vehicles will cause environmental harm for decades to come. The lawsuits could further delay the Postal Service's efforts to replace the ubiquitous...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) has roughly a 50/50 shot at winning the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — more than double the probability of his nearest competitor — according to Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at “1 in 20,” and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg at “1 in 30.” All other 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Mike Bloomberg, Andrew Yang, Tom Steyer, and Tulsi Gabbard, are placed at “1 in 100” odds.
