Nice Girls Finish Last


cjones04132019

According to Maggie Haberman of The New York Times, one reason Kirstjen Nielsen hung in so long as the head of the Department of Homeland Security is that “she was aware how awful life would/will be for her on the outside,” given her role in defending Donald Trump’s policies. That should be the case for anyone who has served, currently serving, or going to serve in the Trump White House. All these people should be treated like the guy who directed Billy Squier’s “Rock Me Tonight” video. Who the hell wants to work with that guy?

Nielsen did not create Trump’s policy of separating migrant families, but she should be known forever as the person who carried it out. She separated families, put babies in cages, and lied to Congress that the policy didn’t exist. She should get the Aldo Raine treatment so she can be “ingloriously” identified with it for the rest of her life. Now, the inept Trump administration says it can take up to two years to identify thousands of separated migrant children.

After John Kelly left his post as Chief of Staff, Nielsen was left without any allies in the White House. She was expected to be even tougher on the border, even if laws were violated. Apparently, that’s where she stood her ground and her enemies used it against her, from son-in-law Jared Kushner, Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, National Security Adviser John Bolton to White House Adviser Stephen Miller. The person who was least happy with Nielsen was Trump himself, who really loves the child separation policy.

As legal experts challenge Trump’s authority to bypass a senior Homeland Security official in order to install a hand-picked acting head of the Cabinet agency that oversees immigration enforcement, it’s obvious the real director is Stephen Miller.

Miller has been guiding Trump’s hand with immigration and it’s being reported he’s seeking a purge of DHS, as the head of the Secret Service was also let go Monday. He’s most likely the biggest cheerleader of the U.S. ending all aid to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, or as Fox News described them, “Three Mexican countries.”

Miller may also be behind Trump telling Border agents not to let anyone into the country to press for asylum, thus forcing them to enter the country illegally where they can arrest and detain them. Yesterday, a court ordered a halt to Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy, which forces certain non-Mexican asylum seekers to wait in Mexico during their court proceedings.

Trump and Baby Goebbels Miller are trying to create a situation for immigrants that’s worse in America than if they stayed home. While they are creating horrible conditions and hurdles for them, they can’t make it more discouraging than their homeland unless they start killing them. Let’s not give Baby Goebbels any ideas.

Ron Vitiello’s nomination to permanently lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement was pulled after Trump remarked that “we want to go in a tougher direction.” Nielsen wasn’t tough enough for Trump even as she carried out his policy of separating families and throwing babies in Jail. All signs, such as Trump saying “America is full,” are showing a return to that policy and even tougher measures.

Trump and Miller seek to make the United States a horrible place where nobody would dream of immigrating to. It’s becoming a place where many people dream of leaving.

Be Complicit

What kind of person would want to be part of something that disparages, slanders, and disrespects Dear Leader and his sycophantic followers? Hopefully, you. 
Making a contribution supports my work and keeps the cartoons, columns, and videos coming. My income is from newspapers that subscribe to my work and small contributors. George Soros hasn’t sent me a million dollar check in weeks. Making a contribution of any amount, or buying a print for $40.00, makes you part of this specific resistance, and a member of Team Claytoonz (we’re still working on the name). You are complicit, an accomplice, and in cahoots (and whatever gangster terms we can think of) with this political satire pointing out that the stupid emperor has no clothes. Contributions can be made through PayPal, checks, and wads of cash exchanged in back alleys.
Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!
