Another loss here for all the wokists who were cheering on the Coca-Cola cultural Marxist diversity plan.
One of those sentences that only makes sense to people so deeply submerged in right wing paranoia and culture war garbage they can't see daylight anymore.

Free market, federalism loving Republicans in Montana are using taxpayer money to sue other states if they want to use less coal.

While most states pursue ways to boost renewable energy, Wyoming is doing the opposite with a new program aimed at propping up the dwindling coal industry by suing other states that block exports of Wyoming coal and cause Wyoming coal-fired power plants to shut down.

The same Republicans are trashing private property rights in service of their zealotry and fossil fuel interests.

Oh, and using less coal is "woke", if you thought that term hadn't become utterly meaningless trash already.

It’s official, Montana is attempting to nullify portions of the private contract that has governed Colstrip Power Plant for 40 years.

Gov. Greg Gianforte on Monday signed two laws nullifying portions of the Colstrip Ownership and Operation Agreement. Senate Bill 266 empowers Montana’s attorney general to prescribe maintenance at the power plant and issue fines of $100,000 a day to each Colstrip owner who doesn’t comply.

Any thoughts @konfab, @The_Right_Honourable_Brit?

You could swear there is a cabal of conservatives who sit together every week and decide on what "outrage" they will drop for this week.

This week its CRT.

Next week Cancelling of the CIA.

Give a nudge to Tucker Carlson and boom.

And so on. Alway seems there is a shiny new gift for them to outrage over.

The funniest thing from that Coca-Cola article is when the NYP says: "Coke’s former general counsel Bradley Gayton, abruptly resigned last month after less than a year on the job", which links to an article by Coca-Cola saying "Bradley Gayton Appointed Strategic Consultant to Coca-Cola Chairman and CEO" :rolleyes:

Barr lie? Surely not!

Jackson linked Justice Department’s effort to keep the memo secret to Barr’s initial descriptions of Mueller’s conclusions, declaring both efforts misleading.

“Not only was the Attorney General being disingenuous then, but DOJ has been disingenuous to this Court with respect to the existence of a decision-making process that should be shielded by the deliberative process privilege," she wrote. "The agency’s redactions and incomplete explanations obfuscate the true purpose of the memorandum, and the excised portions belie the notion that it fell to the Attorney General to make a prosecution decision or that any such decision was on the table at any time.”

Jackson noted that another D.C-based federal judge, Reggie Walton, previously criticized Barr’s early description of the Mueller report. She said that criticism was “well-founded.”

Idaho Republicans covering themselves in glory. Worth remembering when very serious people whine about 'cancel culture'.

The harassment began soon after a report by a 19-year-old intern, who alleged an Idaho lawmaker raped her, became public.

One state representative sought a copy of the police report and made inquiries into how the young woman herself could be referred for criminal charges for reporting the alleged rape.

Another shared links to a far-right blog post that included the intern’s name, photo and personal details about her life with thousands of people in a newsletter and on social media.

And members of a far-right, anti-government activist group tried to follow and harass the young woman after she was called to testify in a legislative public ethics hearing.

I believe @AlmightyBender has an apt term for people like this...

I might have to come up with more severe terms for evil at this level :(
