You are such an amazing writer. Absolutely love this. Incredible insight, cleverly written.

Thanks, LK.

The wider point on this is that both domestically and internationally the rule of law has gone; now exploited as an arbitrary weapon. The West is becoming more authoritarian by the day.

The West/Israel now have international cuckoos controlling nation-state apparatus. Unfortunately for the world at large, they are maniacs with added eschatological delusions.

That is the stark reality and we appear presently to have a choice between accepting their rule or WW3.

Let's face it, the rule of law was always a sham anyway, it's just that many more people in the global North are seeing what the global South have always known - that it was never supposed to apply to the US or its buddies, it was designed as another tool in the imperialist toolbox.

"As you can see, constantly voting for the lesser of two evils has led the US to a really good place. " This is a lesson we all should learn. Voting for the lesser of two evils is going to get us in Canada and extremist, fascist Prime Minister come next election . It is going to get those in the UK a slightly less crass fascist Prime Minister in June. Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.

Not sure Starmer is the lesser of two evils though that's the scary thing. He seems more extreme than Sunak.

It's just that he does not wish to be mistaken for a liberal-minded person.

WHAT. You think Trump controlled by Putin?

Actually he is controlled by all leaders that allow him to brand a hotel in their capital. In Gaza he is totally hooked by deal to not only build a luxury hotel but a golf course for all the money stolen from Palestinians taking over their newly discovered offshore gas and oil reserves.

Know satire, know truth. No satire, no truth.

I do believe Ms. Laura has reached her apotheosis with the correlation of all the contents in her merging of satire with the truth in this analysis.

Netanyahu cannot hide his genocide. He cannot cover-up the evidence. He has turned Gaza into dust.

You mean Benzion Mileikowsky (who changed his name to Netanyahu so he sounded more Jewish?) He was born in Warsaw in partitioned Poland, which was under Russian control. Many of his cabinet also have made up names.

Netenyahu seems to be covering up his bad boy behaviour better than Donald J Trump has. If you recall Nettie was proposing changes to the Israel Supreme Court that would give him more power but, the opposition cabinet and the common people were objecting to his authoritarian power grab. He needed the attack on 7/10 to draw the US into the fight and to distract the people. He needs to drag out this war to stay in power.

Consider how Trump loaded the SCOTUS - they are currently considering his request for "Presidential Immunity" so he can avoid accountability. If he is (God forbid) somehow elected in November, he won't just be a Dictator for one day, it will be for life. You can say bye bye to American democracy, Trump will have his retribution, jail his opponents, surround himself in the Whitehouse with sychophants, appoint Don Jr., Eric, Ivanka & Jared to the top jobs then pardon his band of J6 merry men to be his brown coats.

A brown coat would fit Netanyahu and Trump.

You are very smart and so so funny.

Evangelicals are predictably distraught by Trump’s conviction and said we need a man of His moral purity in charge because who else can spread the message of Christ like He? If ever there was a sequel to the Bible, Trump would definitely be the main star. Stormy Daniels is basically Mary Magdelene.

Trump is certainly a very convenient distraction from Biden's disgraceful, despicable support for Israel and their genocide perpetrated on Palestinian people. Trump deserves everything that's coming to him though, let's not forget the inssurection he enacted, he should have been locked up years ago. They have waited until more Maga and crazies have even given up support for Trump's empire to move him closer to a prison cell.

The whole (human made) world needs a reboot of the humane sort but we are getting the opposite. Humans are so cruel towards their own species, towards our dear friends the wildlife, and all animals, humans are a disaster for flora and fauna and the planet.

I really fear for our young people and their futures. :-(

Excellent analysis Laura, thanks.

Insurrection?

Oh dear.

You mean the one where the police opened the doors and ushered the evil maga types inside?

The evil insurrectionists who cleaned up after themselves after being given a guided tour?

The "me too" harpies were more worthy of the term insurrectionists.

You haven't watched the released video then and just base your knowledge on what the magic TV box tells you?

Expand full comment

Well, gee, Harry.. what video are you talking about. What did it show that I wouldn’t have seen watching it LIVE on every fucking channel? Or during the congressional hearings? Tell me: is the video you’re talking about in the room with us right now, or is it still password protected on your hard drive? Fucking mook.

Expand full comment

Are you really that simple?

You think the "media" would show the whole story, when they are fully complicit in the lies and deceit?

THOUSANDS of hours of footage were released, which undermines the official narrative of an insurrection and shows a different side to the story.

The media thrives on unthinking drones, such as yourself.

Drones who lack critical thinking skills, who will not look at the actual events, but just the superficial media bullshit.

Fucking mook, yourself.

Whatever that means.

It doesn’t undermine shit. If republicans had just ONE piece of evidence that the Jan 6 insurrection wasn’t exactly as we saw, they would have been all over it. They would’ve formed the commission themselves. So fast they would have made your head spin.

They’ve got NOTHING. January 6, 2021 went down exactly as we all saw. Turn off your AM radio, get off whatever conspiracy website you get this bullshit from, and go outside and touch some grass. Come join us in the really real world.

People in America can't get away with saying Israel is committing genocide, (especially after winning an award) but Israel is committing genocide.

Hi,

Doing sexual intercourse for money is what she does. Or rather, what she did before her Big Chance came along and extortion became an alternative.

Always a pleasure to read your work Laura K. This particular one is very hilarious too. A comical & sad state the empire finds itself in at present times.

Nail #1

"Sadly, Trump’s conviction has caused outrage among the divorced men who wear MAGA hats, can’t afford prostitutes, and aren’t allowed to see their kids without supervision. They are ready to start a civil war against the army that has sniper drones and reversed-engineered alien technology. I really don’t think they’ve thought this one through. Let’s be honest, their last attempt at a civil war was a bit embarrassing."

Nail #2

"President Trump has been convicted of crimes that are 1/10,000th as bad anything Benjamin Netanyahu has done, or anything Joe Biden has done, or any of the other things Donald Trump has done for that matter, but thankfully he will never be prosecuted for the really bad stuff, just like the others won’t, because that would kill the military industrial complex and that would mean the US would not have an economy!"

Nail #3

"The greatest nation on earth has the most ethical system possible, one that is utterly dependent on non-stop crimes against humanity. As you can see, constantly voting for the lesser of two evils has led the US to a really good place. God bless America"

3 Nails, 1 Cross to bear, (the salvation of humanity), I know I have heard this somewhere before. Oh yes, now I remember. It’s quite simple really; no one can reach those ‘pearly gates’ of salvation if they are still alive. Silly Wabbits…

My god, what a tragedy, this is once again pure chauvinism, how can it be possible that in the twenty first century, people are still being condemned for paying women.

Scandalous.

Expand full comment

Actually, he was condemned for hiding the payment in order to influence the election. Had he just paid it and entered it in the books as, "paid in settlement of a dispute", he'd have likely been OK.

Mr Clinton didn't seem to have that problem.

Nor Mr Biden, though his was rape and child molestation, not consensual.

You can kill whatever number of civilians in a developing country, there are no "laws" that will prevent you from doing it since you are the great president of the great nation. Others are just "human animals" ,they are just numbers :) who cares about them. You can always say "oh no it was a mistake and I will investigate" :)))

Respectfully dissent. The Pentagon/CIA Axis, warmongers and war profiteers do not want President Trump back in the Whitehouse.

Neither RINO Mitch McConell nor any of the 22 brain dead senators who support the Ukranian Proxy war has objected to the Kangaroo Court proceedings . They are hoping to force a BROKERED GOP CONVENTION in order to (a) either substitutite their candidate >>>>NIKKI HALEY<<<< for President Trump or (b) force President Trump to nominate her as his VP.

During his administration President Trump refused to bait - provoke - Russia into attacking Ukraine .

These 22 Senators prefer to support Biden rather than President Trump and that is what will happen if they can't get NIKKI HALEY into the Republican ticket.

President Trump was "convicted" because he refuses to please the War Party and they are powerful enough to destroy his administration using the CONvid19 Scam or prevent his re-election by using the Lawfare Hoax. .

And so it fucking goes.
