Vermont Gov. Phil Scott said Tuesday that school officials will question returning students about whether they attended gatherings with people outside their household during Thanksgiving to determine if they need to quarantine over coronavirus concerns. “Unfortunately, we know some will still get together and schools have asked for help,” the Republican governor tweeted Tuesday. “[The Vermont Agency of Education] will direct schools to ask students or parents if they were part of multi-family gatherings and if the answer is yes, they’ll need to go remote for 14 days or 7 days and a test.”

Parents tell your children that the answer to that question is “I don’t have to tell you squat”. In the meantime I did not know I went to bed in America and woke up in the 1950’s Soviet Union.

How about we rescind all those "Emergency Powers" acts/laws (in all states, as well as, federal). It seems they are a really SLIPPERY slope towards totalitarianism. I really don't trust politicians. It's a good thing that President Donald J Trump (love saying that) is a businessman and NOT a politician.

Vermont used to be a wonderful, unique state. That was before immigrants from New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut bought it. Presently, native Vermonters usually live in trailer parks on welfare. I moved out.

Of the many horrors that the reaction to Covid-19 has gifted us, the fact that we all have to perfect the art of the lie really bothers me. It’s not so much that we must lie to the government and the medical community. I have no problem with that, as I’ve been doing it for decades. It’s lying to our friends, family and colleagues about where we were, how we live, who we see. Moreover, how do we teach our children honesty, integrity and character, but then tell them they must lie to the authorities? Don’t misunderstand me; I’ll do it, but it feels dirty and false.

If this kind of thing goes unchallenged, we might as well give up our freedoms. The Bill of Rights tell us that WE have protection from the government. If we concede that government is more important than our liberties, we no longer have a country.

I had to tell my son, when he was very young, that what goes on at home is no one’s business. Ever. His 2nd grade teacher would grill them on what they had for breakfast. His pediatrician had anti-gun articles all over his waiting room. I also had to tell him that what I put in his lunch was ok to eat—the lunch monitors had no authority over him. This was back in the late 90s! It’s been going on a long time. Demented leftist teachers, doctors...so freaking nosey. No, just say no. Still ticks me off to this day.

The public hearing will be chaired by Representative Mark Finchem, LD-11 with a number of House and Senate members on the hearing panel. “Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted.

President Donald Trump has encouraged Americans to gather and offer thanks for the “the abundant blessings in our lives” in celebration of Thanksgiving. In a proclamation ahead of the national holiday, Trump urged Americans to commemorate the country’s “founding traditions of faith, family, and friendship, and give thanks for the principles of freedom, liberty, and democracy.” It is a custom for presidents to issue proclamations celebrating national holidays. His comments also called on Americans to “gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings,” which has received scrutiny from the media for contravening public health expert advice and guidance.

I find it fascinating that former President Obama chose this moment in time to write and publish his book, Promised Land. He could have had it released a year before the elections, or a year from now, once another administration had been settled. Instead, he decided to ride the coattails of the election, as though he had won another term, and capitalize on someone else’s momentum. Obama the 2008 candidate came off as likeable, but that was clearly an act. Obama the 44th President and Obama post-presidency is an insufferable jerk who doesn’t know when to leave the stage.

If Anthony Fauci made another dramatic plea about COVID and nobody listened, would he really make a sound? Better: If nobody other than the Democrat Party and the liberal lapdog media listened, and clapped like trained seals in response to everything he said? The latter was the case on Wednesday morning when Fauci hooked up with Scooter George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an attempt to scare tens of millions of Americans into “sacrificing” their Thanksgiving in the name of all-things COVID. Stephy lobbed a softball right down the middle of the plate for the attention-whoring emerging and infectious diseases expert, which he promptly hit into the left-field stands.

As we recall, following the death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in September, President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ignored protestations from Democrats and the liberal media — no; in spite of histrionic Democrats and the hysterical barking hyenas of the liberal media — and successfully powered through the nomination and confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to fill Ginsburg’s seat. Mission accomplished. Expeditiously so. Then in late October, as reported by the Daily Wire, conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt interviewed McConnell about filling Barrett’s vacated seat on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, along with other vacant seats — present and future — throughout the post-election lame-duck term.

The national conservative group Amistad Project filed an emergency petition Tuesday with the Wisconsin Supreme Court challenging the state’s unofficial results in the 2020 presidential election, saying it has identified over 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots. Results from the Nov. 3 balloting in the state show Democratic candidate Joe Biden defeated President Trump by a roughly 20,000-vote margin. Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, said the number of potentially fraudulent ballots identified are “more than enough to call into question the validity of the state’s reported election results.” “Moreover, these discrepancies were a direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law,” he also said.

In fact, up to 50 million Americans are traveling over the Thanksgiving weekend, according to the American Automobile Association, or AAA. The comings and goings of US travelers belie the fact that the Covid-19 pandemic continues to surge. The US reported 2,046 deaths Wednesday -- the highest one-day coronavirus death toll the country has reported since early May, Johns Hopkins University data shows. The country also hit a new daily hospitalization record, with 89,954 people currently hospitalized for Covid-19, according to the Covid Tracking Project.

The scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, believed to be 59, has been considered the driving force behind Iran’s nuclear weapons program for two decades, and continued to work after the main part of the effort was quietly disbanded in the early 2000s, according to American intelligence assessment.

Biden was rarely able to manage a rally of more than a dozen or two stalwarts while Trump’s rallies could top 50,000; Biden garnered more votes than even Obama did, a sublime unlikelihood; the media called for Biden when Trump was comfortably ahead in the ballot count;

A federal appeals court on Friday rejected a request by U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign to block President-elect Joe Biden from being declared the winner of the battleground state of Pennsylvania, dealing another significant setback to Trump’s bid to overturn the results of the Nov. 3 election. “Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so,” wrote Stephanos Bibas on behalf of a three-judge panel. “Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here,” he wrote Bibas, who was nominated by Trump.

The Justice Department is changing its execution protocols, so that federal executions are no longer required to be done by lethal injection only. The amended rule, as reported by the AP, allows the government to use lethal injection or “any other manner prescribed by the law of the state in which the sentence was imposed.” The rule was published in the Federal Register on Friday. Those other manners include “electrocution, inhaling nitrogen gas or death by firing squad.” The amended rule goes into effect on Dec. 24 and comes as the DOJ has scheduled five executions during this lame-duck period.

Conventional wisdom is that COVID-19 has caused thousands of deaths in the United States and nearly 1.5 million worldwide. This perception has been directly challenged by a study published by Johns Hopkins University on Sunday, November 22. Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Johns Hopkins University, critically analyzed the impact that COVID-19 had on U.S. deaths. According to her, the impact of COVID-19 on deaths in the United States can be fully understood by comparing it to the number of total deaths in the country. According to study, “in contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming
