About a National Divorce and Project Veritas

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene recently called for separating the US into red and blue states and shrinking the federal government. Proponents argue this would address political and cultural differences, but critics note the challenges of determining state boundaries and allocating resources.

Meanwhile, James O'Keefe, founder of conservative group Project Veritas, announced he is leaving the organization amid conflict with its board of directors. Project Veritas is known for undercover sting operations targeting liberal groups. O'Keefe claimed he was pushed out after Veritas broke a major story about Pfizer. However, the board cited concerns about O'Keefe's spending of nonprofit funds. O'Keefe's departure raises questions about Project Veritas's future direction and legal standing.
