Then Nathan Darnell, wearing a “Jesus Christ is king” cap and holding aloft a cross, grabbed a megaphone. “You guys The US Congress has finally passed legislation that will make lynching a federal hate crime.

Cheese making is an expensive art form, and starting up as a new cheesemaker is risky. However, Washington state is seeing a rise in new cheese companies.

It was a political earthquake that revealed American women are perilously close to losing a fundamental right. It was also a milestone in America’s seemingly inexorable journey from United States to divided states.

Some wonder if the country’s social fabric, frayed by four years of Donald Trump’s presidency, can survive. 5 “The death of Roe is going to tear America apart,” ran the headline of a ‘New York Times’ column by Michelle Goldberg, which concluded that “the death of Roe will intensify our national animus, turning red states and blue into mutually hostile legal territories. You think we hate each other now? Just wait until the new round of lawsuits start.” 6 The Supreme Court’s draft majority opinion, written by Samuel Alito and circulated on 10 February, was leaked to ‘Politico’ on Monday. It argued in contemptuous tones that Roe v Wade “was egregiously wrong from the start” and “inflamed debate and deepened division”. Four other Republican-appointed justices – Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett – agreed that Roe “must be overruled”. If that decision becomes final, possibly next month, it will tear down a national precedent and turn America into a chaotic legal patchwork.
