As Liz Cheney slams GOP's 'Putin wing,' poll shows support for Ukraine
"Democratic voters are more likely than GOP voters to see the Russia-Ukraine war as important to U.S. national interests. But the split wasn’t overwhelming: 81% of Democrats vs. 69% of the extent that the Republican Party has a “Putin wing,” it’s succeeding in blocking bipartisan legislation on Capitol Hill, but it’s finding less success in convincing the American mainstream"

Alexei Navalny: This is what a post-Putin Russia should look like

Paramount kept their staff on hand to handle stressful conditions, surely kept lots of folks on-call to ensure the Superbowl could be streamed on their service, had record viewership numbers and then immediately laid off 800 of the people who helped give them that success the next day so that the executive leadership could pocket all the profits without sharing it with the labor force who built it.

Speculating about how a jury might have perceived the president years after the incidents took place was entirely irrelevant because the lack of evidence meant there would be no case:"

That friendly airline ‘rep’ on X might be scamming you
Offering to help rebook your flight in a thread is a red flag

A Constellation of Anti-Voting Groups Threaten Democracy
"These anti-voting legal groups offer a path for Republicans to wield majority political power without majority support. They know that they lost in 2020. They are embarrassed that Trump was routed in post-election litigation. Some are upset that his coup failed on Jan. 6."

Cast as Criminals, America’s Librarians Rally to Their Own Defense
“We’re no longer seeing a parent have a conversation with a teacher or librarian about a book their child is reading...We’re seeing partisan groups demand the removal of books that they’re told are bad books, that they are not even reading, because they don’t meet the political or moral agenda"
