    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced Sunday that he agrees with Sen.

    Campus Reform ^ | January 1, 2021 | Benjamin Zeisloft
    Over the years, Campus Reform has reported on hundreds of instances of anti-Christian sentiment at American universities. Here are five of the worst instances from this year. 1. Harvard University. Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Bartholet called for a ban on homeschooling, decrying “conservative Christians” in the process. In a Harvard Gazette interview entitled “A warning on homeschooling,” Bartholet attributed rising interest in homeschooling to the “growth in the conservative evangelical movement,” stating that “conservative Christians” use the practice to “escape from the secular education in public schools,” after a failed effort “to have their children exempted from exposure to alternative...

    @ChadPergram 1) Sen Sanders: The House has passed a $2,000 direct payment for working people. It is time for the Senate to act...I'm going to object until we get a vote on legislation to provide a $2,000 direct payment to the working class. 2) Sanders: Let me be clear: If Senator McConnell doesn't agree to an up or down vote to provide the working people of our country a $2,000 direct payment, Congress will not be going home for New Year's Eve. Let's do our job.

    The Department of Justice is also suing a Vermont hospital for forcing a nurse to participate in the killing of an unborn child. WASHINGTON, D.C., December 16, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Today, the Trump administration unveiled steps that the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) are taking to enforce federal conscience protection laws by holding California and Vermont officials accountable for anti-life discrimination. The announcement was made during “Life Is Winning: Celebrating 4 Years of Pro-Life Accomplishments,” an event hosted by Vice President Mike Pence at the White House, highlighting the many...

  • GOP Rep.-Elect Has a Very Creative Way to Bypass Restrictions on Gatherings for Thanksgiving

    Governors across the country have placed restrictions on residents ahead of Thanksgiving in a purported effort to curb the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. In Colorado, there’s a 10-person limit on gatherings, but GOP Rep.-elect Lauren Boebert has found a workaround. Rather than hosting a dinner, she’s having a “funeral” for the dead turkey. “In Colorado, Thanksgiving is limited to 10 people, but funerals are limited to 30,” she told Fox News. “So I’m going to have a peaceful funeral for a turkey and have about 30 people at my house.” Garfield County, Colorado, where Boebert resides, is under a...

Harris said of herself and Democrat presidential candidate former vice president Joe Biden: oe and I also believe in the worth and value of every Palestinian and every Israeli and we will work to ensure that Palestinians and...

    In a speech about the dangers of bigotry at a memorial for the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, Bernie Sanders included Israel in a list of countries where he claims authoritarianism is rising. Sanders, the democratic socialist Vermont senator, was the keynote speaker at a virtual memorial event hosted by Bend The Arc, a left-wing Jewish advocacy group. The event, held a day after the two-year anniversary of the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh in which 11 Jews were killed, centered on warning of the dangerous effects of white supremacy and xenophobia. Sanders spoke about how relatives of his were murdered in...

    Treisman is not a Trumper, but one of the Left, a supporter of Bernie Sanders. The HuffPo, like NPR, doesn’t bother to inform its readers about this at all. Buried in the fifteenth paragraph of the Washington Post story on Treisman is the salient fact that this psychopath himself explained that he wanted to kill Biden in order to “save bernie [sic].” Treisman wrote on the Internet platform iFunny: “If anything I have to save bernie.” Then he wondered on the same platform: “should I kill joe biden?” But most of those who are imagining a MAGA hat on Treisman...

    Going back to (at least) the technocratic and ambitious FDR, American Democrats have believed that federal government eggheads are best suited to manage most things, including mundane things like ensuring healthcare or housing, for everyone. But as a rule, Democrats have always had a very nuanced way of presenting such policies to the American people. In other words, socialists in America have been most successful when they don’t tell Americans that what’s being offered to them is socialism. The old guard of the Democrat party, which Joe Biden represents, has long understood that. The radical Bernie Sanders wing of the...

    Some 90% of all U.S. wells are now hydraulically fractured. Fracked wells in shale formations open up vast supplies of oil, natural gas and petroleum liquids that previously were locked up and inaccessible. Fracking conventional wells expands and prolongs production, leaving less energy in the ground. Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, AOC, the Democrat Party and U.S. environmentalists are determined to make climate change, the Green New Deal, and replacing fossil fuels with wind, solar, battery and biofuel power the centerpiece of their foreign and domestic policies. They would ban fracking outright – or price and restrict it out of existence...

    Alexander Hillel Treisman Most of the time, the media doesn’t outright lie to you. Yeah, every once in a while they’ll blurt out a huge whopper (“Russian collusion”), but usually it’s more subtle than that. They’ll give you the facts, but they’ll emphasize some facts over others to preserve the narrative they’re selling. They’ll lie by omission. They’ll distract you with trivia while the real story slips by you unnoticed. For example, did you hear about the guy they just arrested in North Carolina for plotting to kill Joe Biden? Do you think you know why he wanted to do...

    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,...

    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...

  • What Sanders Gets Wrong About Biden's 'Centrism'

    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...

'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...

We’re gonna let more criminals out of jail and we’re stunned criminals do criminal stuff when they’re out of jail,” Bongino continued, saying that law enforcement policies had been very...
