May 2, 2023

The background here is a nasty dustup over three pieces of legislation making their way toward approval in the state. Senate Bill 99, which prohibits the surgical mutilation or chemical castration of children, was signed into law on Friday by Republican Governor Greg Gianforte.

Marco Rubio Accidentally Makes a Great Argument Against U.S. Dollar Hegemony
April 5, 2023

We saw just such an instance last Wednesday during a conversation between empire propagandist Sean Hannity and warmongering senator Marco Rubio on Fox News.
