Amid the COVID-19 shutdowns, Liberty University made the decision to allow students back on campus. This action has resulted in the University being blasted by Left media and politicians.
The private Lynchburg, VA University has taken backlash from the Mayor, Treney Tweedy, who said,
“I am concerned for the students, faculty and employees at Liberty University, and I am also very concerned for the residents of the Lynchburg community…. I believe it was a reckless decision to bring students back on campus….”
Vox called the decision a possible “public healthcare disaster in the making.”
Jamelle Bouie of the NY Times instsed that the elderly population of Virginia were being put at risk. He said, “14.4 percent of everyone in Lynchburg…is over the age of 65, if you want a sense of how many people Jerry Falwell Jr. is putting at risk.”

The Washington Post pretended as if Liberty University was breaking the law.
They stated, “Northam has since limited public and private gatherings to 10 people. But the school pressed ahead with a decision to allow students to continue to live on campus if they choose….”
None of these criticism make any sense once you understand the explanation from and preautions being taken by Liberty University.
Jerry Fallwell explained the rationale in bringing students back. He says that their goal was to get students back as soon as possible to prevent them from traveling around.
They explained further, in a public letter, saying,
The Central Virginia Health District came to Liberty yesterday…for an unannounced inspection, and they did not find Liberty in violation of any of the State of Virginia’s Executive Order 53….
As Jim Bowles, the Environmental Health Manager for the CVHD stated: “All operations appeared to be in compliance with the Governor’s emergency order…. We observed that all operations were carry-out only, no seating was provided, and onsite security guards…were limiting the number of customers in line to 10.”
This is all confirmed in a recording put out by Jon Harris of Worldview Conversations. He tweeted out a short video tour of the Liberty University campus, pointing out the many precautions being taken.
Liberty University is getting pummeled for “recklessly” allowing students back on campus. Here’s what’s really going on! https://t.co/zxbK9hxFrZ

In one area, Harris shows that all of the seating was blocked off, mainly because their just aren’t that many students on campus.
For the most part, the students at the University are those who live on campus. They often don’t have anywhere else to go or don’t want to go home and risk contact with even more people when they should be limiting such contact.
Harris also points out the numerous signs in each area (some enormous is size) informing students of mandatory social distancing and to limit gatherings to nine or fewer.
From overturned chairs that remind students not to sit next to one another, to numerous security gaurds enforcing policies (which Harris says students are abiding by voluntarily anyway), it’s clear that safety is of the utmost concern.
The list of precautions goes on and on, completely debunking the narrative and fear-mongering being spread by many media outlets. Criticizing Liberty University for allowing students back on campus is about as absurd as criticizing apartment complexes for not kicking all of their tenets off the property.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
