A seven-year-old Guatemalan girl died in the Custody of Border Patrol (CBP) last week. The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) statement has only raised more questions than it answers.

The girl and her father were apprehended with a large group of migrants in a remote span of the New Mexico Desert. Reportedly, she hadn’t eaten or consumed water for several days. After being in the custody of CBP for over eight hours, she started having seizures. She was transported to an El Paso hospital where she died from dehydration and shock.

Asked if food and water were given to the child, DHS only replied with blame for the father for taking his daughter on the journey to the United States through dangerous elements. She didn’t die on the journey. She died in Border Patrol custody. She died when she was their responsibility.

CBP and DHS need to take responsibility. If someone’s life is in danger after they’re apprehended, saving their life should take precedent over detainment. The Trump administration needs to take responsibility too.

White House spokesperson Hogan Gidley said the administration isn’t to blame for the child’s death. Gidley said, “Does the administration take responsibility for a parent taking a child on a trek through Mexico to get to this country? No.” He then heaped additional blame on Democrats saying, Congress should “pass some common-sense laws to disincentivize people from coming up from the border and encourage them to do it the right way, the legal way, then those types of deaths, those types of assaults, those types of rapes, the child smuggling, the human trafficking, that would all come to an end. And we hope Democrats join the president.

While the U.S. government will only consider claims of asylum from migrants presenting themselves at ports of entry, the Trump administration has disincentivized them from doing so, forcing them to wait in Mexico for lengthy, indeterminate periods of time before considering their claims.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen also avoided addressing concerns about how CBP treated the girl, but instead characterized her death as “just a very sad example of the dangers of this journey.” Nielsen is a sad example of a cabinet member.

The Guatemalan girl’s death comes months after a toddler died from an illness she developed at an Immigration and Border Customs Enforcement facility in Dilley, Texas.

Aura Bogado, an immigration reporter with Reveal, sent a tweet detailing conditions in hieleras, the facilities CBO uses to detain border crossers.

She wrote, “This is the water people are forced to drink. It’s grey and it’s disgusting. It routinely makes people sick. There isn’t even a place to dry your hands after you wash them. Everything is full of fecal matter.”

Cynthia Pompa, an advocacy manager for the American Civil Liberties Union’s Border Rights Center, said the girl’s death “represents the worst possible outcome when people, including children, are held in inhumane conditions.”

“Lack of accountability, and a culture of cruelty within CBP have exacerbated policies that lead to migrant deaths. In 2017, migrant deaths increased even as the number of border crossings dramatically decreased.” Pompa added.

The condition migrants are escaping from are so bad that Donald Trump’s threats and racist fear mongering isn’t discouraging them. People seeking asylum, at least those below our southern border, know they won’t be welcomed with open arms. Now, it seems they can’t be met with compassion or humanity.

We’re the United States and we’re supposed to be better than this. Before January 20, 2017, we were.

Send In The Fembot!!!


 

cjones12202018Austin Powers defeated the fembots by crossing his mojo with their mojo. Apparently, crossing mojos will make a fembot’s head explode. I don’t think the National Rifle Association has any mojo to cross, and their heads will be the ones doing the exploding.

I am always intrigued that the loudest screamers are hypocrites and projectors. Everything Donald Trump says about his enemies turns out to be true about him. Hillary’s administration would be plagued by endless investigations? Check. Pay-for-play? Check. Corrupt charity? Check. Incompetent associates? Check. Massive deficits? Check. Womanizing? Check. Stupid? Check. Selling out to Russia and other foreign interest? Check, check, checkity, check, check.

Russian gun rights activist Maria Butina pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiring to act as an unregistered agent of Russia, admitting that she worked for more than two years to forge relationships with conservative activists and leading Republicans in the United States. Conservatives and Republicans are always the loudest about their patriotism, and always questioning that of others.

One of Butina’s main targets was the NRA, a group she identified in a 2015 memo as an organization that “had influence over” the Republican Party. She wrote that her relationship with the NRA could be used as the groundwork for an unofficial channel of communication to the next presidential administration. Both, the NRA and the Trump administration were eager to be influenced by Russia.

She helped organize a delegation of top NRA leaders to visit Moscow and meet with top Russian officials. She attended their conventions as an honored guest. She used their NRA connections to get access to GOP presidential candidates, including Donald Trump. The NRA even let her ring their bell for top donors, literally.

What’s being questioned is; how much money, if any, did Russia filter through Butina to the NRA? Did any of that money end up in the Trump campaign? What did the NRA know of Russia’s efforts to influence U.S. policy? What did the NRA get in return? Why would Russia, where gun rights are extremely restricted, be so willing to promote gun ownership in America?

Was the NRA willing accomplices or where they just stupid enough to be tricked by a pretty smile and a head full of red hair?

Now Butina has pleaded guilty and has entered into a plea agreement with federal prosecutors. She’s flipping on somebody, but whom? Would prosecutors make a plea deal with her just for information on Alexander Torshin, a former Russian government official who helped direct her activities? There’s not much prosecutors can do to Torshin as he’s not in the country and barred from entering. Torshin is also a lifetime member of the NRA.

The NRA is extremely secretive about how many members they truly have and how much money they make. They have turned over documents related to Butina to the Senate Finance Committee, but they haven’t turned over requested financial records. Why not? What are they hiding?

The NRA’s political action committee and political nonprofit arm together shelled out $54.4 million on the 2016 presidential campaign, which was triple the amount they spent on the 2012 race. $30 million of that money went to efforts to help the Trump campaign. Did any of that money come from Russia? It’s illegal for foreign citizens to fund political efforts in the United States.

Donald Trump, who probably owns a Swedish-Made Penis Enlarger, and the NRA never had any mojo. If you’re looking for mojo, look toward federal prosecutors, because heads are about to explode. But, hey…the NRA usually likes things that explode.

Tech Support For Dummies


cjones12192018

I’m not the most tech savvy person. I bought my first iPhone several months ago and I probably only understand about ten percent of what it can do. I check out the analytics and views of my website each day, and I try to understand it. I wanted to award myself a medal when I figured out how to make videos of creating the cartoons. I learned how to create my cartoons in Corel and forgot everything I knew about making them in Photoshop. But, I know more about how the internet and techy type stuff works than Congress.

Several months ago, Congress held hearings asking Facebook why it was minimizing exposure to conservative voices. What they didn’t understand is that Facebook has limited exposure to all media because they want you to pay to promote it. I know this because they message me every. single. day. about “boosting” my posts. In the past, a cartoon of mine would reach tens of thousands of people on my Facebook fan page. Now, on a good day, I might reach several hundred. Facebook wants me to pay for what I used to get for free.

Now, Republicans in Congress want to know why when you do a Google image search for “idiot,” a lot of results give you Donald Trump.

To explain it simply, that’s because there have been a lot of stories and websites that mention “idiot” and “Trump” in the same story. To explain it even more simply, it’s because Donald Trump is an idiot. If you Google it in reverse, searching for Donald Trump will show you pictures of an idiot.

The hearing was supposed to be about data collection and how Google uses it, but Congress didn’t ask many questions about that or the company’s problem with sexual harassment. Instead, Representatives like Steve King wanted to know why hateful information about him showed up on his seven-year-old granddaughter’s iPhone. Google CEO Sundar Pichai couldn’t answer his question because Google doesn’t make iPhones, but I can answer it. Mr. King, it’s because you’re a hateful, racist, piece-of-crap Nazi who goosesteps to the office every morning. How is that not going to end up on your granddaughter’s iPhone? Also, why in the hell does a seven-year-old have an iPhone anyway? Just in case that seven-year-old’s iPhone brings her to today’s blog; your grandpa is a Nazi.

Republican Lamar Smith said, “You have never sanctioned any employee for manipulating search results whatsoever. Is that the case?” That is the case because it’s impossible for a Google employee to manipulate search results as the process is too complex and requires too many steps. After having this explained to him, Smith said he didn’t believe it. Of course, these are the same people who don’t believe in Climate Change, and we all know that’s been explained to them time and time again. I have a hunch Mr. Smith is a big believer in chem trails.

Democrat Jerry Nadler asked about Russians exploiting Google during the 2016 election. That sounds like a good question and Pichai explained that Google had conducted a thorough investigation and found that in 2016, most Russian political ad spending came from two accounts which had spent a total of $4,700. This isn’t the place to look as the Russians spent over $100,000 on Facebook that reached 146 million Americans in addition to posting thousands of fake news items. Also, all those women in bikinis sending you friend requests aren’t real.

Republican Louie Gohmert proved he’s an idiot by asking why all the edits he makes to his Wikipedia page every night are removed by the next morning. Apparently, he’s unaware that you’re not supposed to edit your own Wiki page, but as an example, you can go to Louie Gohmert’s Wikipedia page and edit to your heart’s content, because you’re probably not Louie Gohmert. For example, did you know to “gohmert” is the act of sticking one’s face between Donald Trump’s butt cheeks? Information like that should be on his Wikipedia page. For example; man, Louie really gohmerted those orange butt cheeks.

Republican Ted Poe asked if Google can track his movements. That answer is yes, depending on what apps you’re using on your iPhone. Pichai explained this and said he didn’t know if Poe was being tracked. Poe got upset and said “It’s not a trick question. You make $100 million a year. You ought to be able to answer that question. I’m shocked you don’t know.” Well hand him your phone, and he can probably give you an answer that’ll make you less shocked. And again, Google does not make iPhones. I’m upset no ice cream company makes a chocolate, strawberry, chocolate instead of that Neapolitan crap, but I’m not about to blame Google for it. Nobody wants vanilla unless there’s apple pie. Ted Poe makes $174,000 a year, so he ought to know people can’t guess if he’s downloaded Angry Birds. Pichai should have asked him if he’s downloaded Grindr, because that’ll track you. Maybe that’ll show up on his Wikipedia page.

It scares me that Congress asks questions about internet stuff because that means they might start writing more laws on it. What’s scary about that is they don’t understand it.

The members of Congress expose themselves as being totally ignorant when they hold these hearings. It’s like when Donald Trump talks about anything. They’re demonstrating how dumb they are. But, I bet they each know how to find online porn.

Conservatives used this hearing to play victim like they do with everything. It’s like conservative, straight, white, Christian, middle-aged men can’t catch a break, or endorse a Nazi without being criticized for it. Sheesh.

Nancy’s Wall


cjones12172018

Donald Trump, the great negotiator, negotiated himself into a box yesterday.

Trump told Senator Chuck Schumer that if he doesn’t get what he wants for funding a border wall with Mexico, that he would shut the government down and take all the blame for it. He said, on camera, that he wouldn’t blame Schumer or the Democrats, and he’d take all the blame. He also said he would be “proud” to shut the government down for border security.

The nation doesn’t like government shutdowns, especially around Christmas. In the past, both parties blamed each other for shutdowns even though nobody wins them except Bill Clinton. Now, Democrats can refuse to fund the wall, let Trump shut down the government, and watch public scorn land on him. Trump gave Democrats little reason to give him funding for the wall.

Publicly, Republicans responded by saying they didn’t want a shutdown, and they hoped the negotiations would continue. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell described the discussions in the Oval Office between Trump, Schumer, and Pelosi as “spirited.” If Republicans are saying that in public then they’re probably screaming behind closed doors.

One administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Trump appeared upset after leaving the meeting, flicking a folder and sending papers flying out. A staffer told the Los Angeles Times after Schumer and Pelosi left, the West Wing sprang into “damage-control mode,” adding, “The aftermath of that meeting was not pretty.”

And you wonder why no reasonable person wants to be his Chief of Staff.

Trump invited the Democrats into a trap. The setting was before cameras where Trump feels he has the edge. The Democrats even offered to take the discussion private to avoid the theatrics, but Trump refused, citing “transparency.” Unfortunately, if your trap hinges on your being more intelligent and more prepared than your opponents, and you’re neither, you’re going to fall into your own trap.

Reality TV is not reality. Reality is what Chuck and Nancy delivered each time Trump lied. He lied about having Republican support in the House for the wall (which they haven’t voted to fund over the past two years). Trump lied eight times that construction on the wall has started. He claimed Mexico would pay for the wall by paying higher prices for American goods in the “New Nafta.” The Democrats called him out on his lies. The reality is that Trump is not going to get funding for his stupid wall.

Trump is not used to being corrected or stood up to. In classic bully fashion, when confronted, he backed down.

Trump attempted some mansplaining and got schooled. He said Pelosi was “in a situation where it’s not easy for her to talk right now,” because of her race for Speaker. Pelosi calmly hit back, with, “Mr. President, please don’t characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting as the leader of the House Democrats, who just won a big victory.”

Later, she got her digs in. She said, “You get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you.” But the statement that will truly sting Trump the most was, “It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him.” Pelosi “smocked” Trump. The only thing that would have made it better would have been one of the Democrats referring to Trump as “Individual One.”

Any doubt that still existed before this that Pelosi is the one to take on Trump is now extinguished. Jules and Vincent couldn’t have walked out of the cafe any cooler at the end of Pulp Fiction than Pelosi walked out of the White House yesterday.

Democrats have put two offers on the table, neither of which has wall funding: $1.6 billion in “fencing” along the southern border or a continuation of last year’s spending levels for the Department of Homeland Security, about $1.3 billion. Trump is demanding $5 billion.

For Trump sycophants, they see Trump defending their interest by demanding that they pay for a campaign promise he broke. On the campaign trail, Trump promised Mexico would pay for the wall. At no point during the 2016 presidential campaign did Trump say American taxpayers would have to pay for his stupid, useless, racist border wall. Now, he’s telling his supporters they should be upset that Democrats won’t make them pay for it.

Democrats should not give Trump one cent for his wall. They also should not use Dreamers as a bargaining chip like they did earlier in the year. Don’t make Americans pay for Trump’s broken campaign promise, especially on something useless that’s only designed to appeal to a xenophobic, nationalistic, racist base.

And welcome to the new reality where Trump is not in control, and he might actually realize it. Trump is not a negotiator, intelligent, or even remotely competent for the presidency. Hopefully, Republicans start to realize it too.

A Smocking Boom-Boom


cjones12162018

Wanna learn something about me? Tough. You’re gonna hear it anyway.

Once, I was offered a job in a political campaign. Not just any position either, I was offered to be a campaign manager of a congressional campaign. You probably thought I didn’t have any skill or experience in that area. You were right.

It was 1994 and a Republican candidate offered me the position. This was the year the GOP with Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America was going to take the House. A Democrat had just retired from the district after serving 54 years, and this was in Mississippi. Everyone knew a Republican was going to take the seat.  So, I turned it down.

I knew the candidate who offered me the position was going to lose, but that’s not why I declined. Every political operative works on a losing campaign. I had several other reasons to turn it down.

I didn’t have any experience and had only been in the newspaper business for four years. I didn’t want to be the reason a campaign failed. Even though my editors were willing to grant me a leave of absence, I didn’t want to leave journalism and enter politics even though it was tempting to see how the other side lives. But, the biggest reason I turned it down was that the campaign was going to be a flaming disaster going over a cliff.

My first clue was that they offered me the job of campaign manager. What the hell was wrong with them? I draw cartoons. I don’t get people elected to Congress. I wasn’t even a Republican. The candidate had no realistic chance of winning in a six-person primary, and they thought they did. I didn’t want to work with people who were that delusional. Finally, they, as in the candidate and his wife, gave me a really creepy vibe. I didn’t want to work, less enough be stuck in a car for 24 hours a day, with creepy stupid people. Ew. So I thanked them for the opportunity and politely refused. They ended up coming in 6th in the primary and the winner of that seat is now a United States senator, who I ended up meeting during the campaign (but this was Mississippi. You meet everybody).

I bet that’s why Nick Ayers turned down Trump’s offer to be his Chief of Staff. Quite frankly, it’s like being offered the job of captain of the Titanic AFTER it hit the iceberg. Look what it’s done to John Kelly, a four-star General. It’s reduced his respect and credibility to the same level as Omarosa’s. If a four-star General can’t reel Trump in and exert some control over the West Wing, what chance does a 36-year-old political operative have?

The Chief of Staff position is prestigious. It puts you in the seat of power and makes you a big time player in the world of politics. When you’re done, you either turn that prestige into major bucks in the corporate world or the speaking circuit, or you build your own political career, like Rahm Emanuel and Dick Cheney. So, why would someone as young as Ayers turn it down?

Serving as Trump’s Chief of Staff probably wouldn’t parlay into a future of huge rewards. You would have to be a total sycophant, and nobody respects those. You could be blackballed from jobs and even chased out of restaurants. And with Trump, you would most likely have to spend thousands on legal bills and quite possibly be indicted yourself. Do you want to go to prison for Donald Trump?

On top of all that, you can’t trust Trump. After setting an agenda, you would find out later from Twitter that Trump has changed his mind. There would also be ridiculous tweets and statements you would have to defend with a straight face. Look what that’s done to the faces of Kellyanne and Sarah Huckabee. The next CoS will also serve while Congress is controlled by Democrats and conducting multiple investigations on Trump, and Robert Mueller will be bringing the hammer down. Good times are not ahead for the Trump administration.

Later, after you’re fired, Trump will tweet to the world that you’re lazy and stupid like he did to his former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. Trump demands loyalty while returning none.

Ayers isn’t the only one running from the job. Reportedly, OMB Director Mick Mulvaney and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin are sending signals to the White House saying, “Please, god no. Not me.” Dirty Jobs Mike Rowe is currently in the Witness Protection Program avoiding a call from Trump.

Trump will find a Chief of Staff. There are reports former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is under consideration. If you thought he couldn’t sink any lower than eating what Trump tells him to eat and making cheeseburger runs, just wait. Dignity will not be on the menu.

I kinda feel bad for the next babysitter because this is a big baby, and he makes big boom-booms.

Baby, It’s Politically Correct Outside


cjones12152018

There’s a debate raging on social media whether “Baby, it’s cold outside” is about rape or not. Many liberals are saying it’s totally rapey and conservatives are saying it’s not, and the lady has to keep the baby.

Some radio stations have banned the song and now they’re receiving hundreds of complaints, which is kinda shocking. People still listen to radio stations?

While some think the song is from a bygone era about harmless flirtation, others see it as date rape. The woman is trying to get away while questioning what’s in her drink, and the dude is giving her the “but how can you do this to me?” treatment. Also, the whole “mind if I move in closer” and “your lips are delicious” are the kind of lines that deserve a response with a friendly taser or a swift kick to the jingle bells. Make them jingle bells rock, baby.

But, is the song actually rapey? Yes. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t take a different meaning from it and still enjoy it. I won’t let it ruin Elf for me as Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel performed a sweet duet of the tune, which was also funny for its creepiness.

Just as soon as you’re sure there’s nothing wrong with “Baby, it’s cold outside,” somewhere, there’s a Klansman re-interpreting “White Christmas.” You know it’s happening. It doesn’t matter what your, or even the writer’s intention was, to that racist, it’s not about snow.

How many songs do you sing along to now that you have misinterpreted or don’t even understand? That didn’t stop me from singing along with “Smells like teen spirit.” An albino? A mosquito? Who cares? Sing it. A song can mean whatever the hell you want it to. Some songwriters, myself included, often don’t know the meaning to their own songs.

At some point, a song doesn’t really belong to the creator anymore and it becomes the listeners. That’s the way I see it. When you listen to “Baby, it’s cold outside,” it’s your song and no one else can decide what it means to you. There’s no crime in enjoying it. We’re not talking about something that explicit, like 2 Live Crew’s “Me so horny.” And, if you want a horny Christmas, then go have a horny Christmas. Just don’t have a rapey Christmas.

But for the record, “no” means no in 2018, and it meant no in 1944.
