;D I like it too. The one that would definitely make my day is the following one I got from one of your posts over a year ago:





Of course, if you are 'HAPPY AND GAY' in the USA, it DOES NOT MATTER HOW MUCH OF A CROOKED EVIL BASTARD YOU ARE...


Below, please find, a picture  of Roy Cohn with a "friend". Vanity Fair claimed that the fellow with makeup and the Roman Centurion helmet is Trump.


Maybe it isn't Trump, BUT THERE CAN BE NO QUESTION THAT TRUMP WAS ROY CHON'S 'LOVER TYPE':


TRUMP () is EVERY BIT AS MUCH OF AN EVIL BISEXUAL, HOMOSEXUAL, CHILD ABUSING PERVERT (and every other sexual perversion you can think of  - and many that we have never thought of as well - evil is QUITE CREATIVELY DESTRUCTIVE in this area) BASTARD AS ROY CHON WAS (AND EPSTEIN IS).

Most people have NO IDEA about the DEPTH OF EVIL these bastards are capable of. And THAT is why they are so successful at DOUBLING DOWN in doing the evil they do.

"Justice" 👹 Kavanaugh, Sexual Predator and Corporate Fascist Enabler, is missing below, but you get the idea:

The main function of the U.S. Supreme Court is, in general, to provide fascist elite orchestrated impunity for just about any sort of injustice visited on the populace in order to continuously enrich criminal elites in particular.

I ran into an interesting quote today from the book, "All Honorable Men". It sheds a great deal of light on how the American Capitalist system aids and abets the fascist modus operandi. The quote is referring to I.G. Farben, the NAZI chemical corporation that perfected fascist cartelization for the purpose of monopolizing all industrial production and most of the profit, all over the civilized world, under German fascist control. They are more infamous for their SS Death Camp poison gas, but that was just a tiny part of their criminal activities all over the world. 

In their files, discovered within days after the U.S. Army got to their main offices, was the plan for the "New World Order" after WWII. It is detailed and methodical. The parts were all mostly in place before WWII. The parts grew and prospered AFTER WWII.

We are there.

Quote
The world-wide activities of the Farben organization as part of  the German war effort have been publicized so much that they have created a picture of an octopus-like monster. Actually that is not the point. Most of the individual acts which made up the spectacular geopolitical activities of I.G. Farben looked like ordinary business transactions. Partly their success was due to American acceptance of the 😈💵🎩 "business is business" philosophy. Largely relying on this easy tolerance of social irresponsibility, the Farben organization put across its entire program, capturing markets, bottling up inventions, digging out economic and industrial secrets, and financing propaganda practically without fear of reprisals or countermeasures.

I think you have it exactly right. All of the major incursions against democracy have been fashioned by the Court, starting with "corporate personhood," recently bookended by "money=speech." A retrograde court can go where democratically elected representatives cannot.
