    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...

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

    10/02/2020 8:43:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | October 2, 2020 | Sally Pipes
    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 hes 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...

    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...

Bongino, who also previously served with the New York Police Department, told Fox & Friends host Pete Hegseth that the increase in crime was the logical result of policies that put criminals back out on the streets rather than behind bars. ... Were gonna let more criminals out of jail and were stunned criminals do criminal stuff when theyre out of jail, Bongino continued, saying that law enforcement policies had been very...

    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 hes 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...

    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...

    If you look at Joe Bidens goals and Bernie Sanderss goals, theyre not that different, from a forty-thousand-foot level, Obama said. They both want to make sure everybody has health care. They want to make sure everybody can get a job that pays a living wage. They want to make sure every child gets a good education. Obama discussed his former vice presidents campaign during an interview with The New Yorker writer Evan Osnos at the former presidents home in Marthas Vineyard this Summer. Obamas comments challenge the Biden campaigns efforts to combat the argument from President Donald Trumps re-election...

    ... Student-loan debt and higher education During her short-lived presidential campaign, Harris joined her competitors Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in releasing a plan aiming to address the $1.5 trillion student-debt problem. The proposal was part of her broader plan to close the black-white gap with regard to jobs in high-paying fields like technology and engineering and entrepreneurship. Under the Harris proposal, borrowers who received a Pell Grant, the money the government provides to low-income students to attend college, will have up to $20,000 of their student debt forgiven if they start a business and operate it for at least...

    by Samantha Foster When they were handing out speaking slots for their convention this week, Democrat leaders thought it would be a good idea to diss rising far-left progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by giving her just 60 SECONDS to speak. I'm pretty sure they are now regretting that decision -- BIGLY. That's because AOC (D-NY) used her one minute of time to SNUB presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden --- and instead to nominate Bernie Sanders for president. Ocasio-Cortez began by stating, Good evening, bienvenidos, and thank you to everyone here today endeavoring toward a better, more just future for...

    Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont on Sunday said the overwhelming majority of progressives understand that President Trump needs to be ousted from office amid grumbling from the left about presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden. I would say that the overwhelming majority of progressives understand that it is absolutely imperative that Donald Trump be defeated, Mr. Sanders, Vermont Independent, said on ABCs This Week. He said there may be some disagreements. A lot of my supporters are not enthusiastic about Joe Biden you know why? I ran against Joe Biden, he said. But I think there is overwhelming...

Gideon leveraged her leadership position in the Democrat-controlled legislature to kill two separate bills that would have criminalized the practice of severing the clitoris of infant girls and sewing their vaginas shut. ... Under Gideon's leadership, Maine Democrats argued that the bill was racist toward the state's large immigrant community from Somalia, a country where the practice is "nearly universal" according to the United Nations ... Gideon's efforts have helped make Maine one of only 12 states that have not banned female genital mutilation. Such a legacy threatens to complicate her cultivated image...
  • Progressives Sour at Kamala Harris: The Contempt for the Base Is, Wow

    Members of the far-left soured at Joe Bidens (D) selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate, expressing disappointment establishment Democrats did not heed the calls of progressives, many of whom supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) during the primary race. While Harris attempted to brand herself as a moderate during her presidential campaign, her record proves the label is inaccurate. Despite that, Harris is failing to resonate with many progressive voters, particularly given her controversial prosecutorial record.
