Israel: Deeper into Depravity
Patrick Lawrence | ScheerPost - TRANSCEND Media Service, 6 Nov 2023

31 Oct 2023 – The video provokes a disgust as profound as any I have ever felt. It features Israelis recording themselves sadistically ridiculing Palestinians in the most cruel manner. They imitate Palestinian children dying or starving. They apply racially offensive makeup and mock Gazans as Israel deprives them of power, potable water, food and much else.

The Real Threat from China: They’re Better at Capitalism Than We Are
Patrick Lawrence | ScheerPost - TRANSCEND Media Service, 4 Sep 2023

30 Aug 2023 – The Biden administration’s China strategy comes down to parrying, in a word.

Why the Ukraine Conflict Will Unravel NATO and Biden
Radhika Desai | ScheerPost – TRANSCEND Media Service, 24 Jul 2023

19 Jul 2023 – The US has only military might to offer allies. So, Biden’s impending military failure in Ukraine is likely to prove the effective undoing of NATO.

Media: Objectivity and Its Discontents
Patrick Lawrence | ScheerPost - TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 Feb 2023

14 Feb 2023 – It is one thing for reporters and editors to abandon the principle of objectivity as they hurl their hatchets at those who provoke their prejudices—Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, whomever.
