On Sunday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Minister Lloyd Austin met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi in Kiev. It was the highest-ranking representatives of the US government who have visited the capital of Ukraine since the outbreak of war.

I'm a nerd and I admit it. Reading through this article, I came across this quote: "Trump, Bannon and their fellow travelers were eager to dismantle NATO to give Putin the victory he dreams of most passionately." Historically the term "fellow travelers" referred to those supportive of the various global socialist movements. I found that interesting, because from my vantage point, right-wing Americans in 2022 don't look so different than American left-wingers, far left-wingers to be more specific did in the Soviet era. And this one sentence pretty much captured it all. read more
