This is way too on the nose.  I need help verifying this is real.

https://www.morganlewis.com/news/chambers-partners-names-morgan-lewis-as-russia-law-firm-of-the-year

The tax lawyer Trump used at todays press conference to explain away his conflicts of interest is apparently from MorganLewis.

It wasn't the American office, but the Russian office of the American firm that Trump uses for his lawyers.

Unfortunately the weekly world news, which was the best of them, seems to have gone out of business.

Yeah, Weekly World News was harmless.

The National Enquirer on the otherhand seems to be the mouthpiece of Vladimir Putin as all I ever see on the cover is Russian propaganda

Idiot.

In general, and almost perfectly, Idiot's existence is pretty much Trope-naming standards as a news story highlighting the structure of the System.

I'm quite seriously, just look at this fuck from any angle you please and it works. How much more I need to say other than this seems to be self-evident? I can't think of a more fitting example. And the beauty if you'll never be able to convince hlf the people you meet that this is the case.

I see no problems here.  What's so bad about Bannon remaking the GOP in his own image.

So is Uncle Fjodor worth reading after all? I thought they injected all the bestsellers with mindcontrol nanobots in early 90's.

So lets be honest here, the simulation we all live in hasn't been running as well as it should have been. What was once a reasonably plausible and well constructed illusion hasn't been as stable as it used to be.
We now live in a world where Jim Carry gets in a twitter flame war with Mussolini's granddaughter.

Also knowing that Jim Carrey is upfront that he has an employee running his Twitter account and he has zero interaction with it, is somehow funnier.

Yes, Zenpatista could tell you more.

Apparently, peacefully assembling violates free speech.

By this time next year, this sort of shit will get you tossed under the bridge with the undocumented people.

I'm tempted to say "This is all normal.", but am slightly worried about being flayed alive for saying so.

It is always all normal.

Ok, back when I was studying the Blue Cliff Record, there was a zen Koan I found especially disturbing, except I think it was about Huang-Po and every time his name comes up it's rather disturbing. Anyway, this Zen master has a young pupil, the master never says anything to anyone, when asked a question, he holds up one finger. That's, it.

One day, a traveller approaches the boy and asks, "What does your master teach?" and the boy doesn't say a word, just holds up a finger. The master gets pissed, REALLY pissed, and chops the boy's finger off.
