Fetch, Devin, Fetch

After being Donald Trump’s ball boy over the past five years, Devin Nunes has resigned from Congress and is mooving to become Trump’s ball boy in the private sector (see what I did there with the “moo?”). He probably figures he can do a better job of lying for Donald Trump from his future social media platform than from a seat in Congress. Devin is going to work for Donald Trump. Of course, he’s always worked for Trump but now it’s official.

Devin is taking a serious gamble here. The first gamble is: The Republican Party can win back the House in 2022 which would make Devin Nunes the chairman of the most powerful committee in Congress, the Ways and Means Committee. But that’s probably boring compared to barking out bullshit and waging legal fights with fictional cows.

But then again, Devin may not be re-elected in 2022 as his district’s map is changing.

The other gamble for Devin Nunes is he’s leaving Congress to become CEO of Trump’s upcoming social media platform, Truth Social. Yeah, I know. “Truth”? They should call it “Bullshit Social.” But, this platform may not ever come to exist.

Truth Social was supposed to debut last November, but where is it? The domains created for it were attacked by hackers on their first day of existence. The company has already violated its software agreement (shocking). The stock options for the company are like a shell game and are already under investigation by the SEC. A lot of people bought stocks not realizing they were buying into a Trump venture. That’s like buying a house before realizing it’s haunted by Jerry Lewis. “Hey, Laaaaaaaaaaaaaady!”

This is Trump’s second venture into social media. Do you remember his first one after leaving office? Exactly!

Trump started this weird thing where he’d create posts from “The Desk of Donald J. Trump,” which was on the site from his super PAC. The idea was for it to be exactly like Twitter…if Twitter mugged you each time you went on the platform. Each post was supposed to be under 280 characters so his cult could share them on other platforms, mostly Twitter and Facebook. It was supposed to be a “communications” platform but there was no way anyone could post a reply under Trump’s post or do any actual communicating. This was designed so nobody could hurt Trump’s feelings or point out he had just self-owned himself like he did last week with an “official” statement that said, “Anybody that doesn’t think there wasn’t massive Election Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election is either very stupid, or very corrupt!” Yup, he called himself very stupid and very corrupt. We already knew that. It’s nice when Trump does it for us so we don’t have to.

I digress. This “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” shit didn’t last and hits to the site started decreasing after the very first day it launched. Within two weeks, it had less than 10 percent of the interaction it had on its first day. Michael Flynn’s tenure in the White House lasted longer than “From the Desk of Donald Trump.”

Devin better hope this new venture doesn’t go the way of From the Desk of Donald Trump, or Trump Steaks, Trump Wine, Trump Airlines, etc, etc.

The third gamble here is: Trump stiffs people. I’m not talking about the kind of stiffing where he has to get a cheap lawyer like Michael Cohen to draft non-disclosure agreements for. I’m talking about the way he stiffs contractors. Trump, who cares so much about working stiffs, has a long history of stiffing working stiffs. Trump has probably stiffed more blue-collar workers than he’s draw-dogged porn stars while being married to Melania.

You may think Devin has been working for Trump for free all these years anyway, so so what. But, that’s not true. We’ve been paying Devin Nunes to wash Trump’s balls over the past five years.

When Nunes was chair of the House Intelligence Committee, he constantly worked to protect Trump. He didn’t want to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election. He didn’t want to investigate Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia. He didn’t want to investigate the Trump Campaign’s collusion with Russia. When Nunes learned more about Russian ties to the Trump campaign, before he shared it with the rest of the Intelligence Committee, he ran to the White House to tell Donald Trump. He blamed investigators for investigating. He issued a four-page memo claiming the FBI had an anti-Trump bias for investigating Trump goon Carter Page instead of having an anti-Russian spy bias. Nunes was investigated by the House Ethics Committee for disclosing classified information, but the GOP-led committee dropped the investigation since Nunes wouldn’t give them all the documents they wanted. Seriously.

Devin Nunes even went to London in an attempt to meet with the heads of MI5, MI6, and the General Communications Headquarters to get dirt on Christopher Steele, the author of the Steele Dossier, alleging Trump paid Moscow hookers to pee on him. Ironically, each agency told Nunes to piss off. Maybe he just wanted to know the going rate for having Trump pee on him.

During the first Trump impeachment, Nunes went to Europe to meet with Ukrainians to try to get dirt on Joe Biden. He also claimed Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election. His trip was supposed to be a secret but it was exposed by CNN and The Daily Beast. Nunes claimed they broke the law by reporting his secret trip. He later attempted to sue CNN and fellow Congressman, Ted Lieu, for reporting and talking about his relationship with Trump goon, Lev Parnas. Lieu was excited about the lawsuit as it would force Nunes to disclose his contacts and other interesting information in depositions. All these lawsuits were thrown out.

Nunes loves frivolous lawsuits which bring us to the cow.

Devin Nunes sued two Twitter parody accounts, one titled “Devin Nunes’ Mom” and the other “Devin Nunes’ Cow.” The cow won.

Now, Devin’s going to work for a social media website that, pay attention, has its users agree the Trump platform is not responsible for shit they post. This is something Devin and Donald Trump both opposed while in office. Donald Trump always wanted to blame the platforms any time someone would write something like, oh, I don’t know…maybe something like, “Donald Trump is the demon spawn of an orange Nazi shitgibbon.” Devin never liked being asked on Twitter, “Hey, Devin…did you notice what Trump had for lunch today while your head was up his ass?” Of course, that question was rhetorical and was asked just to annoy Devin. We all know the answer is Big Macs.

Devin is giving up the potential to wield huge power in Washington for what he believes will be huge power in social media. But how much power will he really have after going to work for Fox News in six months because Truth Social could never compete against 4-chan or Telegram?

Fox News does pay but he’ll still have to have his head up Trump’s ass. That won’t be a problem because apparently, he likes it there.

Moo.

Fa La La La La-La-Bang Bang Bang


CjonesRGB12102021

So, what kind of parents are James and Jennifer Crumbley? Well, they’re the kind of parents who give their 15-year-old son, Ethan, a Sig Sauer nine-millimeter pistol. And other parents debate when it’s time to give their kids cell phones.

The Crumbleys are the kind of parents who don’t tell school officials about their kid’s gun after they’re called in to talk about their son’s drawings of murdering people.

They might be the kind of parents who don’t tell school officials at the meeting over drawings of corpses, “Hey, there’s a semi-automatic pistol currently in his backpack.”

They’re the kind of parents who go on the run after their son is arrested as the only suspect in a school shooting that killed four people. I’m sure if they got away, they’d send Ethan a birthday card to his jail cell every year.

They’re the kind of parents who claim they were going to turn themselves in after cleaning out their ATM and hiding in a friend’s Detroit warehouse for about 24 hours after missing an arraignment. Both parents are charged on multiple counts of involuntary manslaughter for not securing the gun.

They’re the kind of parents who hire defense lawyers for themselves but let their son settle for the free court-appointed lawyer.

The shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan is the deadliest at a US K-12 campus since 2018 and the 32nd such attack since August 1. The parents purchased Ethan’s gun four days before the shooting on Black Friday. Jennifer referred to it as his Christmas present. Nothing celebrates the birth of Jesus as much as an assault weapon.

There were rumors before the shooting there would be a school shooting on that day. The students knew it but apparently, the school, police, and Ethan’s parents did not…supposedly.

Ethan did not legally own his gun. Kyle Rittenhouse didn’t legally own his gun either. I’m sure the little girl in Congressman Thomas Massie’s gun fetish Christmas photo doesn’t own her gun either.

The congressman tweeted out a photo four days after the shooting where he, his wife, and their five kids, are posing in front of a Christmas tree, each holding an assault weapon. The accompanying message is, “Santa, please bring ammo.” Let’s hope for the moment that the congressman’s guns are as empty as his head.

Other than being tasteless, the congressman is encouraging more parents to give their children assault weapons.

When I was a kid, I had a gun. My gun was a 4-10 shotgun. Growing up in Louisiana and Georgia, a lot of my friends had guns. I don’t recall anyone having something other than a 4-10, 12 gauge, or a 22 rifle (When I was old enough, I a 22 rifle from K-mart, and a 12 gauge from my uncle, but he later repossessed it because I wasn’t making payments on it. I pawned the 22 after I got married and it hasn’t been fired in years). But nobody had a gun just to have a gun. Everyone hunted with their guns. It wasn’t as much of a gun culture as it was a hunting culture. It was one I didn’t really fit into and my 4-10 rusted in a closet (I was more of a city kid). But a friend of mine was shot with his 4-10. If I’m recalling the story correctly, he was shot in his bedroom while he and another friend were goofing off with it and he forgot it was loaded. He survived because it was a 4-10. Those guns are typically used for rabbits, squirrels, birds, and ex-boyfriends in the ass. He was hit in the arm and he often showed the scars off. Yes, scars. The pellets made several holes in his arm. I didn’t know him until about a year after the shooting, but I had heard about it. When I found out he was the kid in the news and in all the school rumors, I said, “That was you?” I was glad he survived. We used to shoot BB guns at each other behind the levy along the shore of the Ouachita River, which was a terrible hobby (the rule was you could only pump your gun once, but you’d hear the “clack clack clack” of a BB gun being pumped several times behind a tree during these gunfights that everyone in the neighborhood would play in). Surprisingly, nobody lost an eye.

So maybe it’s a horrible idea to give any kid a gun, any kind of gun. When I was in high school in the deep south, there were shotguns and rifles visibly displayed in the gun racks of students’ pickup trucks. Guns on school property weren’t banned. But then again, this was the 1980s and my high school had a smoking section too. I knew guys who would go hunting before school and show up in bloody orange and camoflauge hunting clothes. It was really hard to focus on a math quiz while sitting next to someone who smelled like a deer carcass.

Guns are a bad idea for kids. And in a lot of cases, they’re a bad idea for adults. There are so many guns on the open market that nobody needs to own.

There have been 407 mass shootings in the United States in 2021 that have killed 482 people. There are 2,409 victims of mass shootings this year. Of those 407 mass shootings, 222 have been school shootings. And most of those school shootings were with guns the shooters didn’t own. So, maybe we should stop promoting gun fetishes with children on fucking Christmas cards.

This is more than a crisis of bad parenting, but don’t make any mistakes about it…the Crumbleys are bad parents. And if you buy your underage kid a gun, so are you.

Bob Dole


CjonesRGB12092021

My favorite thing about Bob Dole was Norm MacDonald’s impression of him. Norm always did it in the third person. Bob Dole needs some sleep. Bob Dole is out of here. Bob Dole lost another election.

Bob Dole had a sense of humor and they say he liked Norm’s impression of him. Unfortunately for Bob, his humor was old man humor.

After Bob Dole fell off a stage at a campaign rally (which Norm used in his SNL skits), he joked, “Even before I hit the ground, my cell phone rang. It was a trial lawyer saying, ‘I think we have a case here.'” Everybody laughed. He told the same joke at his first debate against Bill Clinton. Again, everybody laughed, including Bill Clinton. He told the joke again at the second debate against Clinton. This time, nobody laughed…except Bill Clinton. It was almost like Bill Clinton felt sorry for Bob Dole. Bill Clinton knew he was going to win the election and was never in any real danger from Bob Dole.

Bob Dole was elected to the Senate in 1969 and ran in 1976 as President Gerald Ford’s vice-presidential pick. During his debate with Walter Mondale, he griped about “Democrat wars” and all the lives lost in them. He served and lost the use of his right arm in one of those “Democrat wars.” So, it was weird. But the world wars were not “Democrat” wars. Hell, neither war was even started by the United States.

After that loss, he said, “Bob Dole says you won’t have Bob Dole to kick around anymore.” I made that up.

After losing with Ford in 1976, Bob Dole ran for president in 1980 and lost the nomination to a guy named Ronald Reagan. Dole didn’t just lose the nomination to Reagan. He lost it to five other candidates and came in seventh. He said, “Bob Dole shall return.” I made that up too.

He ran again in 1988 and did much better than seventh and actually won the first primary…and then he lost the rest to George H. W. Bush. He even got mad about it and said on national television after losing a primary, “Bob Dole doesn’t like George Bush lying about Bob Dole’s record.” I twisted that one around a little.

Dole ran again in 1996 and Richard Nixon told him, “If the economy is strong, Bill Clinton will beat Bob Dole.” In the primaries, Bob Dole struggled but finally defeated such exciting Republican stalwarts as Lamar Alexander, Phil Gramm, and Pat Buchanan. Dole won the primary and had to sell Bob Dole to a nation still angry about him, Newt Gingrich, and the GOP shutting down the government and four years of doing nothing except attack Bill Clinton…who had extremely high approval ratings. Bob Dole had to run saying, “Bob Dole doesn’t know who this Newt Gingrich is you speak of.” Bill Clinton was popular and the economy was doing great. Unfortunately for Bob Dole, he was running against one of the best politicians America had ever seen.

I was there. I remember Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich campaigning against the government when a white nationalist terrorist bombed a government building in Oklahoma City killing 168 people, including children. The public was done with the anti-government stuff Republicans had been using against Clinton…and here was one of the champions of that hate campaign, that helped inspire a terrorist attack, running for president. America was a different place in the 1990s than it is during the Trump era where hate sells.

During his acceptance speech for the nomination, Bob Dole said, “Bob Dole will be a bridge to an America that only the unknowing call myth. Let Bob Dole be the bridge to a time of tranquility, faith, and confidence in action.” I twisted that one too. Bill Clinton came back with, “We do not need to build a bridge to the past, we need to build a bridge to the future.” That was pretty much all she wrote for the 1996 election. Bill Clinton could have gone on vacation for the rest of the campaign after that. Bill Clinton was coasting the same way Barack Obama did after John McCain selected a screaming numbnut banshee from Alaska as his veep candidate.

There was a faction of the Republican Party called the “Let Bob Dole be Bob Dole” faction. I’m assuming there was a faction called “Let Bob Dole be anyone other than Bob Dole.” But he was Bob Dole running against Bill Clinton who was being Bill Clinton.

Bob Dole resigned from the Senate to focus on the campaign saying, “Bob Dole has nowhere to go but the White House or home.” I twisted that one too, but just a little.

Voters sent Bob Dole home. He lost 379-159 in the electoral college. Slight sidebar: Clinton got 379 and Trump claims his 304 electoral votes in 2016 was a higher number. Biden got 306 in 2020.

The problem for Bob Dole is that there never was a good reason to make Bob Dole president. Can you think of one? Oh yeah…because we had to slow down the economy and destroy the surplus Bill Clinton created? We didn’t need Bob Dole for that. George W. Bush took care of it in the early 2000s.

Today, people are talking about Dole as one of the last civil Republicans and how he was always able to compromise, but Bob Dole endorsed Donald Trump after he secured the 2016 nomination. Bob Dole is the only former presidential nominee to endorse Trump. He was also the only one to attend the 2016 Republican National Convention. Dole endorsed Trump again in 2020 and complained the debates, where Trump brought COVID, were biased against him. At the very least, Bob Dole admitted Joe Biden beat Trump and the claims of election fraud were bullshit.

So, I’m sorry but I’m not on this bandwagon of praise for Bob Dole. He was likable enough but not very exciting. And in the end, he was still a Republican who was OK with race-baiting and shitty policies that would make the rich richer and the poor poorer. Trump’s racism was not a dealbreaker for Bob Dole.

The only reason Bob Dole wanted to be president was that Bob Dole wanted to be president. He died yesterday at the age of 98. Surprisingly, Norm MacDonald died before he did. If there is a Heaven (there’s not), Norm gets to crack on Bob Dole and Burt Reynolds.

Cuomo No-No


CjonesRGB12082021

Disclaimer: I freelance for CNN. I draw one cartoon each week for their opinion newsletter. Now, if I worked for Fox News, I wouldn’t have had to tell you that.

CNN fired Chris Cuomo on Saturday. His show occupied the 9:00 PM timeslot which goes head-to-head nightly against MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show (who is also leaving soon) and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tonight (who’s never going to leave). While it’s going to be difficult for CNN to replace someone who sat in the 9:00 PM chair, it’ll be harder to replace the handoff-show banter between Cuomo and Don Lemon, whose two-hour show begins at 10:00 PM.

CNN already walked a tightrope with Chris Cuomo as his brother was governor of New York. He really couldn’t cover any news about his brother. But, during the pandemic, he would have his brother on which was very entertaining as they’d bicker and insult each other as brothers do. Once when Chris mentioned his wife had given him a haircut, big brother commented that judging from the haircut his wife had given him, she must be harboring a deep resentment against Chris. After Andrew received a COVID test during one of his live briefings (to show how easy it was), Chris presented him with a Q-tip that looked to be about four feet long. It was entertaining stuff, especially to those who have siblings. But the fine line between news and family was eventually crossed.

During Andrew Cuomo’s sex scandal, his brother Chris wasn’t able to cover the story. He mentioned that on the air. All seemed on the up-and-up, but it wasn’t. As it turns out, Chris was helping Andrew with strategy, mostly with how to deal with the press coverage. Chris even used his contacts at other networks to inform Andrew and his team of impending stories on the scandal.

It had been known for months that Chris had some involvement with his brother’s defense. He had said, “I’m not an adviser. I’m a brother. I wasn’t in control of anything. I was there to listen and offer my take.” But a document dump by New York Attorney General Letitia James after an investigation into Andrew’s sexcapade showed that while Chris was working as one of CNN’s top anchors, he was also effectively working as an unpaid aide to the governor.

The dump revealed multiple texts between Chris and several aides and allies of the governor where he sought to use his connections in the press to help prepare Andrew’s team as accusers started to make their stories public.

CNN put Chris on “indefinite hiatus” on Tuesday and hired a law firm to investigate. The network issued a statement saying, “When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second.”

“However,” the network said, “these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew. As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”

The investigation brought new information to light and the head of CNN, Jeffrey Zucker, fired Chris Cuomo on Saturday. It was the right call.

Journalists are not supposed to work with people they cover. They definitely should not help them craft political strategy to aid their campaigns or administrations. MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosts, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were huge friends with Trump. Trump even offered to conduct their marriage ceremony, as a president can do that (like a boat captain. Didn’t you ever watch Love Boat? Though, Trump’s boat would probably be called “Grope Boat”). Joe And Mika even named their pet bunny “Donald Fluffy Trump.” I always suspected Trump was a fluffer. MSNBC never held their on-air couple accountable for their overly-friendly relationship with Trump.

But it’s Fox News where journalism ethics truly go to die. Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro have both spoken at Trump rallies. AT Trump rallies. They were speakers on the stage campaigning for Trump. Hannity argues he’s not a journalist, which we are aware of, but he’s on a supposed news network. Whether he believes he’s a journalist or not, he should still have to abide by the ethics of journalism. It’s bad enough Sean, Tucker, and the rest of the Fox News crowd of on-air white nationalists promote conspiracy theories and outright bullshit, but going on the campaign trail with someone they cover should not be allowed. It doesn’t even have to be investigated. It’s on the air.

But it gets worse. Sean Hannity and Donald Trump, during the Trump presidency (sic), would have late-night phone sessions. These two were trading sweet nothings on a nightly basis while conducting political strategy. And Chris Cuomo was fired for helping his brother. Personally, I think being the president’s (sic) personal fluffer for four-straight years is a greater violation of journalism ethics than helping your brother (not that I’m excusing that).

So this week when you witness white nationalist Nazi turdlings doing the happy dance while gleefully praising the dumping of Chris Cuomo for violating journalism ethics, keep all that Fox shit in mind.

But, Sean Hannity does have a point. Fox News is not journalism. But, maybe Fox News should stop pretending that it’s an actual news source.

Roughs, Volume 118


Yup, it’s that time again. It’s time for roughs. And there’s a lot of them this week.

Rough1502

You may recall Thanksgiving was last week. You may also be aware that Thanksgiving typically lands on Thursdays. Thursdays and Fridays are my CNN days (they’re also the days when everyone I know wants to contact me about frivolous bullshit). So, we moved last week’s CNN day to Wednesday so we could all eat turkey without facing a deadline. All the topics covered in today’s blog were drawn before the Ahmaud Arbery verdict came in. After that, every rough was on the verdict. Keep in mind, the cartoon had to still be relevant five days later because we publish on Sundays. I didn’t think that’d be a problem after the verdict came in.

As for this cartoon, it was a warmup without any real intention of it being picked. I had done something similar a year or so ago. I do like the setting at the crosswalk.

Rough1509

This was actually one of my favorites of the batch. I did a lot with Lady Justice in this batch.

Rough1508

Looking at this one again, it made me laugh. Maybe I should have done it.

Rough1507

We went with this one but changed the shirt to read “Ahmaud Arbery’s Life Mattered.” Funny creative story: I did a Google Image search to see if anyone had drawn this cartoon already. I didn’t find any. After I drew it, I searched again and I found one by Nick Anderson, though it was a pin on Lady Liberty reading “Black Lives Matter” and not a shirt, which is probably why I missed it the first time. I was going to tell my editor after Thanksgiving at the risk of not having a cartoon in the newsletter, but they called me and wanted to change the shirt. That solved the problem. I later messaged Nick and told him, just to share. He said it wouldn’t have been a big deal and that he also did not remember his own cartoon. That I can relate to. I don’t remember what I drew yesterday.

Even though similarities happens to every cartoonist, I’m very particular about this, and I know a few other who are as well. It’s bad enough I see cartoonists drawing cartoons they know have already been done…but then they boast about how awesome they are. I hate that guy…I mean, I hate them.

Rough1506

I don’t like this one.

Rough1505

I did this one for my clients. I thought it was just OK but it did fit the moment.

Rough1504

I hate this one so much that I’m not sure if I sent it to my editor or not.

Rough1503

This was OK.

Rough1501

Right about the time of the verdict, Baby Ammo Rittenhouse went to Mar-A-Lago for a photo-op with Donald Trump. I’m sure if the three men who murdered Ahmaud Arbery had beaten the rap, they too would have gotten one of those sweet orange Nazi photo-op invites.

Rough1500

I loved this one so I did it for my clients.

Rough1499

My proofreader Laura liked this one but I chose the Trump/Kyle one over it.

Rough1498

The rest of this batch was drawn before the verdict. See how fast I switched gears? Get ready for a Santa’s Lap stream.

Rough1497

I was gonna do this one but then Jeff Stahler did something similar with Santa’s lap and shooting your eye out. I don’t remember it exactly, but I thought it migh be too close. Still, I may return to this concept in some way, especially after what happened in Michigan.

Rough1496

This is how Republicans would ask Santa to help the country if they actually gave two shits about the country. So, I was using creative license here.

Rough1495

The initial idea of this had the same dialogue, but it was being said by two guys in a bar. But the cops on horses saved me from the bar setting which I admittedly use a lot. Don’t worry. I’m still going to keep using it.

Rough1494

This is the first one I drew on Thanksgiving week for my batch of roughs. I later saw Ann Telnaes do something on the rich that reminded me this was still in my back pocket. Maybe I should have hung onto it before showing it to you here. I might bring it back which will be OK because you’ll forget you ever saw it by then.

Rough1493

Occasionally, I’ll tell you there are more roughs but I’m holding onto them for now. This is one of those. This was thought up and sketched out two weeks ago. I made an official cartoon out of it at the beginning of last week.

There’s a digital notepad full of ideas I’ll never get to in addition to a maybe folder full of roughs that I may do in the future, like when the topic returns to the headlines. Like the ideas in the notepad, I won’t get to do most of those in the maybe folder.

This was a big batch and next week’s is even larger. Trust me on this, there’s a lot of crap in next week’s batch. There’s not a lot in it I like. But with this batch, what your faves?

Creative note: I don’t listen to any music while roughing out ideas. My TV is always on CNN while doing these but it’s usually on mute.

Foxy Nazis


CjonesRGB12072021

Can you believe that once upon a time Lara Logan worked for 60 minutes? Hell, Tucker Carlson once worked for MSNBC and CNN. It’s a crazy world out there. But then again, a lot of white nationalists conceal who they are, or at least try, until they land on Fox News.

Logan, who was once a respected journalist, compared Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to Nazi physician Josef Mengele while making false claims that the death rate from the coronavirus is the same as the common flu.

Last Monday on Fox News, Logan said, “What you see on Dr. Fauci — this is what people say to me: that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele. Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps.”

Wow. Lara Logan sure is familiar with Nazi doctors.

This is just more of the villainization of Dr. Fauci, who’s become a tool for the racist white-nationalist wing of the Republican Party in the politicization of a virus that’s killed over 770,000 Americans, 352,000 in 2020. By the way, Lara, the flu kills around 30,000 people each year. In case you’re a Republican, 30 is less than 352.

It’s bizarre that the people who are politicizing the virus, fighting mask mandates, social distancing, and vaccines are the same people griping that the president hasn’t eliminated COVID yet.

Back to this Lara-Nazi thing: Dr. Fauci was appearing on Chris Haye’s show on MSNBC when he responded to a question about the Lara-Nazi thing. He said, “What I find striking, Chris, is how she gets no discipline whatsoever from the Fox network — how they can let her say that with no comment and no disciplinary action?” I’m sure that was a rhetorical question.

In case you’re a Republican, “rhetorical” means the question is in jest. No answer is expected and the person who asked the question usually already knows the answer. It’s more of a statement than a question.

But it’s true there has been no comment or disciplinary action by Fox News, but I’m sure they’ve covered the Chris Cuomo thing out of their collective asses.

Fauci said her comments were an “absolutely preposterous and disgusting comparison.”

“It’s an insult to all of the people who suffered and died under the Nazi regime in the concentration camps,” he said. “It’s unconscionable what she said.”

According to the Holocaust Memorial Museum, Nazi war criminal Mengele was known as the “’angel of death,’ or sometimes the ‘white angel,’ for his cold and cruel demeanor.”

Mengle performed lethal experiments on identical and fraternal twins. He conducted “medical’ experiments on Jews at Auschwitz. He conducted experiments on the body parts of his Jewish victims to prove they were most susceptible to diseases, and thus inferior to the Aryan “master race.”

The Auschwitz Museum, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the American Jewish Committee have all condemned Logan’s remarks and have demanded an apology from Fox News.

The Auschwitz Museum tweeted, “Exploiting the tragedy of people who became victims of criminal pseudo-medical experiments in Auschwitz in a debate about vaccines, pandemics, and people who fight for saving human lives is shameful. It is disrespectful to victims & a sad symptom of moral and intellectual decline.”

The chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League said, “There’s absolutely no comparison between mask mandates, vaccine requirements, and other covid-19 mitigation efforts to what happened to Jews during the Holocaust.”

He added, “This includes making outlandish and offensive analogies suggesting that somehow Dr. Anthony Fauci is akin to Nazi war criminal Josef Mengele, known for his gruesome medical experiments on concentration camp prisoners.”

The American Jewish Committee called Logan’s comments “utterly shameful” and said that “an apology is needed. There is no comparing the hell these victims went through to public health measures.”

But there hasn’t been an apology yet. The host of the show where Logan made her disgusting comparison, Pete Hegseth, didn’t push back. The co-host, Will Cain, called Fauci a “would-be authoritarian.”

Logan is not new to spreading conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic statements. Last fall, Logan criticized the Open Society Foundation, founded by Hungarian American billionaire George Soros, who is Jewish, to fund civil society organizations, as “puppet masters” who “when they are done, there will not be an America.”

She claimed Sweden has no vaccinations when the fact is they’ve administered over 15 million to a population of 10 million. Basically, the entire population of Sweden, where Logan claims there are no vaccines to the coronavirus, has been vaccinated. That’s like saying the Island of Dogs doesn’t have dogs.

She’s accused the FDA of approving vaccines that are not vaccines. She’s accused Biden of covering up side effects to the vaccines. She’s claimed that a surge of Haitian immigrants at our border is a “virus attack” on the United States. She said, “Bioweapons specialists and intel agents tell me that that’s typical of how you disperse a virus.”

She called two former Fox contributors, Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes, who left the network over its programming decisions, “cockroaches.”

Fox News has not apologized for Logan’s slander or antiSemitism. I don’t expect them to.

Fox News has been all about politicizing the virus and spreading conspiracy theories. The fact Tucker Carlson still has a show proves they don’t care about facts. And when it comes to antisemitism and racism, please.

Tucker Carlson’s show is the favorite of racists. He’s spread the “great-replacement” theory, that whites in America are systematically being replaced by non-whites. Last July, he warned that if we don’t “save” our nation, we’ll “become Rwanda.” These are Klan talking points.

Andrew Anglin, one of the nation’s most prominent white supremacists, described Tucker’s show as “Basically, Daily Stormer: The Show.” The Daily Stormer is a Nazi newspaper. He called Tucker, “Literally our greatest ally.” The Daily Stormer mentioned Tucker Carlson over 250 times in the span of two years according to a data researcher who remains anonymous out of fear of being murdered by Tucker Carlson-loving Nazis.

Once, when Tucker debated a Cuban-American, The Stormer ran a story with the headline, “Tucker RAPES AND IMPREGNATES Crazy Eyed Whore in a COLLEGE CAMPUS CRY CLOSET.” Other fun headlines in the Stormer above pro-Tucker stories are, “Tucker FILLS Liberal Kike with LEAD for Demanding Gun Control,” and “Tucker Carlson FORCES Fat Beaner Whore to CHOKE to DEATH on GREASY TACOS.”

What’s wrong with greasy tacos? But, can anyone find any evidence where Tucker has denounced or distanced himself from any pro-Tucker stories written by Nazis?

Nazis are Tucker fan boys, but they also love Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, Laura Ingraham, and Lara Logan. And, that’s why Nazis love Fox News.

If anything, Fox News may want to issue an apology to Nazis…for comparing them to Dr. Fauci. Nazis may not like that.

15 Weeks


CjonesRGB12062021

Abortion is doomed, and with it, so is the Constitution.

Donald Trump is gone from the White House but his lingering stench will be smelled for at least the next 30 years. This is why Mitch McConnell stole two Supreme Court seats, one from President Obama and the other from President Biden. A juvenile pig like Donald Trump shouldn’t be allowed to order for himself off the McDonald’s kids menu less enough to have three nominations for the Supreme Court.

America, you got robbed.

Amy Coney Barrett, who was the second pick stolen from Democratic presidents by McConnell, tried to make a case that abortions weren’t necessary anymore since women could just drop babies off at police stations and firehouses. This is the best legal mind Trump could find? Forget legal arguments and let’s go with batshit crazy religious zealotry.

Barrett also stated, “There is, without question, an infringement on bodily autonomy, you know, which we have in other contexts, like vaccines.” This is zealotry. I suppose Barrett never caught polio because of an “infringement on her bodily autonomy.”

Mississippi is trying to ban abortion. They enacted a law banning abortion after the 15th week of pregnancy. Texas has it around six weeks (when a heartbeat is detected). The Supreme Court established in 1973 a constitutional right to abortion and prohibited states from banning the procedure before fetal viability, currently around 23 weeks.

Brett Kavanaugh asked the lawyer for Mississippi, “In other words, that the Constitution is neither pro-life nor pro-choice on the question of abortion but leaves the issue for the people of the states or perhaps Congress to resolve in the democratic process?” He’s arguing it’s not a Constitutional right. He’s setting a precedent for their upcoming ruling, which we’ll probably get around June.

The people who argue against abortion are basing it on religion instead of a Constitutional right. Religion should not be a factor in constitutional decisions other than it’s protected. The Supreme Court, which has upheld the separation of church and state, is using the church to decide on matters of states. The Supreme Court is full of zealots.

The Supreme Court didn’t have to take this case, but they did so they can ban abortions. I expect the court to make it legal for states to ban abortions outright…and give Congress the right to ban it nationwide in the future. Vote Democratic, people.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked, “Will this institution survive the stench that this creates in the public perception that the Constitution and its reading are just political acts?”

Too late.

Hate in an Elevator


CjonesRGB12052021

There is a current debate within the Republican Party over if they should stop being openly racist, bigoted, immature, and cease all the hateful attacks that make them feel so warm and squishy inside. The more mature members of the party are worried all this transparent hatred will carry over and hurt them in the midterms and believe it would be best to go back to concealing their racism inside their policies and dog whistles.

Maybe some members are afraid their racist constituents are too stupid to catch dog whistles. I mean, they’re too stupid for irony, so maybe.

A couple weeks ago, white nationalist representative Paul Gosar, posted an anime video of him murdering Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He said he was trying to appeal to young people, like Nazi Youth.

Racist representative Lauren Boebert has been on tour doing the same standup routine of accusing her colleague, Ilhan Omar, who is Muslim, of being a terrorist. It’s hilarious if you’re a Nazi.

Bobo tells this story of being in an elevator with Omar (or it’s a colleague in the elevator, depending on which version of Bobo’s you wanna go with), where she says something like “we should be safe because she doesn’t have a backpack,” implying a Muslim would only have a backpack to conceal a bomb.

Can’t Republicans just wink and nod at each other while making it harder for black people to vote without posting anime videos of them killing non-white women?

This is religious bigotry. For Republicans, religious bigotry is OK depending upon the religion you’re being hateful toward. The party’s leader, Donald Trump called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” while on the campaign trail in 2015. He also demanded that all mosques be spied on and some mosques to be shut down. His reasoning for this was that Muslims have hate toward the United States. As I keep saying, Republicans don’t catch irony or hypocrisy.

As president (sic), Trump used the phrase “send them back” in regards to “The Squad,” representatives Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. This became a huge racist chant at his racist rallies. But the thing is, where did Trump want to send them back to? “Shithole” countries where everyone lives in “grass huts?” Other than Omar, who immigrated to this nation as a child, the other three non-white women were born in the United States. All four women are just as much American as you, I, and Donald Trump.

Though, I’m a better American than Donald Trump because I don’t want to dismantle the Constitution, install a fascist dictator, or sell my nation out to Russia.

Donald Trump is a racist and so is the rest of his party. I used to say that voting for Trump didn’t make someone a racist, but that racism is not a dealbreaker for them. Now, I do believe that if you voted for Trump twice, you’re a racist. You didn’t vote for Trump despite the racism, but because of it. Plus, you have been stupid enough to not catch the racism in 2016, but you had four years after that to figure it out. Did you miss when the guy couldn’t condemn Nazis without quibbling?

Now, there is infighting within the party. Representatives Nancy Mace and Marjorie Taylor Greene are fighting over whether or not the party should be openly racist. While Greene has joined Boebert in describing the “Squad as the “Jihad Squad,” Mace wants to limit the racism to supporting Donald Trump and his racist policies.

Boebert and Greene are documented idiots. While they’re yukking it up about the “Jihad Squad” and Muslim backpacks, they’re ignoring that most terrorism in this nation is committed by people who look like them.

White men are responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks in this nation. While Boebert may be afraid of a Muslim with a backpack, that Muslim has every right to worry about a white person with a MAGA cap.

It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to overturn an election they lost. It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to destroy our democracy and constitution. It was white nationalist MAGAts who attacked the United States Capital building. It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to install an unelected orange fascist dictator.

Some MAGAts are deflecting. They’re pointing out that the driver in the Waukesha parade who killed six people and injured 62 others was a black guy who hates white people. But even if he had killed every person in that parade, white people would still be the leaders of American terrorism. Never mind the fact this man’s supposed hatred of white people had NOTHING to do with him driving through that parade. Also, was this a segregated parade or something?

A lot of MAGAts are talking about Jussie Smollett this week and the hoax he’s accused of perpetrating. He’s accused of creating a hoax of being attacked by Trump supporters and claiming a hate crime was committed. MAGAts would rather talk about the fake hate crime than the real ones.

MAGAts would rather talk about the black guy who created a hate crime hoax and ignore the fact hate crimes increased under Trump nationally by 20 percent. They don’t want to acknowledge that in the counties where Trump held rallies in 2016, hate crimes increased by over 200 percent.

They would rather talk about the black guy who created a hate crime hoax than talk about the black guy who was murdered by three white racists in Georgia.

Republicans, including Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Donald Trump have accused Ilhan Omar of supporting terrorists, though there’s nothing like that on record. But, Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Donald Trump have each supported white nationalist terrorism…and they’re still supporting terrorism.

The real irony here is that every Republican who supports Donald Trump also supports terrorism. For them, as long as the terrorism is white, it’s right.

Critical Gun Theory


CjonesRGB12042021

Republicans are really good at protecting us from things that don’t exist. Remember when Donald Trump’s education secretary said there should be guns in schools to protect students from bears? But you have to admit, there have been no public school bear maulings since she brought it up. Bears must have heard this while watching Fox News and said, “Well, shit. We can’t maul children at schools anymore. We may as well just go the parking lot at Kroger and maul some shoppers there.”

Over the past year, Republicans have been livid over critical race theory. Some state legislatures even passed laws banning the teaching of critical race theory in public schools. They didn’t worry about private schools because they teach white victimization, white privilege doesn’t exist, and slaves were immigrants with job offers.

When Glenn Youngkin was campaigning for the governorship of Virginia, he kept talking about critical race theory, and then he’d talk some more about critical race theory, then he’d take a break to talk about President Biden sending the FBI after white parents, and then he’d talk some more about critical race theory. And it worked. He won by talking about critical race theory and that FBI-white-parents bullshit.

But you know what’s NOT in public schools anywhere in Virginia or the rest of the country? Critical race theory. Do you know what keeps getting into schools? Guns. Guns are continuing to get into schools and Republicans are not doing anything about it. Instead, they focus on imaginary problems.

Why don’t we just let critical race theory get into our schools and allow Republicans to protect students from it the way they protect students from mass shootings, with thoughts and prayers. Hey, they can pray that students don’t get educated. If Republicans have their way, they won’t. Look at Texas.

While Republicans have created laws to ban something from schools that don’t really exist, many of them are trying to create laws to put more guns into schools. Conservative logic is that guns are needed to save us from guns. They love the good-guy-with-a-gun argument except that fucking theory is total bullshit.

Remember the church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas in 2017? The shooter murdered 26 people and injured 22 more. A “good guy with a gun” arrived and chased the shooter down after shooting him twice. Republicans everywhere got an erection from this good-guy story because their health plans pay for Viagra. But the truth is, that good guy with a gun didn’t save one life. The good guy with a gun didn’t take any action until AFTER the shooter was done murdering people. The good guy shot the shooter twice, and the shooter still got into his vehicle. The good guy was an NRA shooting instructor and still wasn’t able to stop the shooter. The good guy with a gun went after the shooter, never mind the people bleeding to death inside the church. If that good guy had actually gone into the church to stop someone’s bleeding instead of being a macho man and snapping into a Slim Jim while roaring down a Texas highway after a shooter the cops were also chasing, perhaps he would have saved a life.

The shooter shot over 700 rounds in 11 minutes. Where was the good guy with a gun? Outside waiting for the shooter to emerge after he was done murdering people. The good guy saved ZERO lives. The good guy just wanted to play Rambo without putting his life in danger. He allowed people inside the church to bleed to death. The good guy became a right-wing folk here. Also, that was in Texas. It’s hard to believe there wasn’t at least one parishioner inside that church who was packing.

There was another school shooting yesterday, this time in Oxford, Michigan. Three students are dead and eight others were wounded. The shooting was carried out by a 15-year-old who used a 9 mm Sig Sauer SP2022 semi-automatic pistol that was bought for him by his father on…wait for it…Black Friday. Three 15-round magazines were purchased with the pistol and the kid took all three with him. Thanks, Super Dad. This kid killed and injured more people than Kyle Rittenhouse. Maybe he can use the Rittenhouse self-defense defense. Maybe one of the people he shot was about to slap him with a ruler.

Also, I’m not sure the kid had enough weaponry. He was going into a school with a semi-automatic pistol. Someone in that school could have had a skateboard and you know the only defense against a skateboard is an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. Did you know that because he’s so good at skateboarding, Tony Hawk is considered the most dangerous person in America? Look it up. It’s true.

What will Republicans do about this latest shooting? Thoughts and prayers. Now, if someone tries to bring critical race theory into the school, then we’ll see some Republican outrage. And using GOP logic, we need critical race theory in public schools to protect students from critical race theory.

Guns in schools is not a theory. They’re real and they kill. The real theory is that Republicans actually care about protecting children from gun violence. Hell, the only Republican who remembers Sandy Hook is Alex Jones.

Republicans are good at protecting us from shit that doesn’t exist. It’s like solving non-existent problems.
