Wildfire


cjones10152017

As at least 20 wildfires rage in California, killing 35 so far, Donald Trump is gutting Obama’s Climate Change policy (along with everything else Obama initiated during his term. More on that with my next cartoon). While Trump has issued a disaster declaration for the Golden state, Californians will probably have to issue huge compliments and gratitude for Cheetolini to do more.

Thousands of homes have been lost to the fires, including the Santa Rosa home to one of my heroes, Peanuts creator Charles Schulz.

When it comes to disasters, Trump is picking and choosing which Americans he wants to receive aid. While Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico are also recovering from hurricanes, Trump is issuing threats to the territory that we can’t stay there forever, as if it’s a foreign nation we’re occupying.

Trump is also picking and choosing which parts of his oath of office he plans to keep.

Donald Trump recited the oath of office which states, “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Donald Trump said those words, but they apparently don’t mean anything to him.

Trump is concerned with people disrespecting the flag of the United States and the National Anthem (unless it’s Kid Rock wearing the flag as a diaper. He gets invited to the White House). He has said that people can’t disrespect those. Much like the stock market and the national debt (which Trump said last week, one will pay off the other), he doesn’t understand the United States Constitution…or the fact he’s sworn to protect it.

Trump loves the flag controversy. It helps him further divide this nation and it allows him to continue to be president only for the low-information rubes who support him. There is no actual danger to this nation if someone disrespects a flag, a song you don’t know all the words to, or even our military (which has not technically fought for American freedom since the Civil War). It’s red meat for stupid religious zealots, like vowing we’re going to start saying “merry Christmas” again, which must be a secret ban Obama implemented. I can’t find any information on that, no matter how hard I search.

A rhetorical question I posed on Twitter a few days ago to Trump sycophants was: “what’s worse? Disrespecting the flag or the U.S. Constitution?” Violating one of those actually endangers our freedom, and it’s not the flag.

What is frightening as hell is that we have a president, who idolizes authoritarian figures, who is disregarding the parts of the Constitution he doesn’t like.

Trump says people can’t disrespect the flag. Yes, they can. It’s protected speech. The Constitution doesn’t say that only speech Donald J. Trump agrees with is allowed.

While every president has issues with the press, Trump has been in a constant love/hate relationship with it for his entire life. Lately, he’s focusing on the hate.

Upset at a report that he wanted to increase our nuclear arsenal (because he doesn’t understand treaties either), he blasted NBC. Trump tweeted, “with all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” He also wondered out loud why the Senate Intelligence Committee wasn’t looking into the “fake news networks.”

Wednesday, Trump said, “it is frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write, and people should look into it.” Guess what, you walking mango. I looked into it. Yes, the press pretty much can write whatever they want to write. It’s how Trump’s favorite publications, The National Enquirer, Breitbart, InfoWars, and Fox News can spread made-up bullshit for Trump to help disseminate.

First off, there is not a license for news network, no more than there are licenses for journalists (including political cartoonists). Individual stations are licensed, but not networks. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) does not regulate content. This isn’t Nazi Germany, or present-day North Korea, or Cuba, or Azerbaijan, or China, or Russia, or Iran, or Saudi Arabia, or Egypt, or Turkey, or Uzbekistan, etc.

Second, freedom of the press is guaranteed by the First Amendment. If you’re a Trump voter, that’s the very first one in the Constitution. Our Founding Fathers thought it was kinda important. Trump might have autocratic fantasies about ditching parts of the Constitution that he and his stupid base don’t care about, or have never bothered to read, but he has sworn to defend it.

Similar to how you can’t choose which American citizens are worthy enough to receive disaster relief, and which are not, you can’t pick which parts of the Constitution you swear to defend. I know the Second Amendment is the only one you get a boner for, but you might want to look into the others.

When it comes to people who kneel during a song and people who want to violate the United States Constitution, only one of those groups should have their patriotism questioned (hint: It’s not the protesters).

Did you know that in addition to protecting the press and protesters, the First Amendment also allows you to practice whichever religion you fundamentalist zealots choose? Also, it prevents anyone from stopping you from saying “merry Christmas.”

Nasty Boy Scouts


cjones10142017

What do you call a woman who can fly a plane? A pilot. But, what do you call a girl who is a Boy Scout? That’s a head-scratcher for the moment.

I really am not concerned about the Boy Scouts allowing girls to join. It’s not like the organization is attempting to become modern and progressive. They are a very rigid Christian organization that has had to be dragged kicking and screaming into this century and to get over their homophobia. They’re not there yet.

I’m more concerned with how the Boy Scouts of America are influencing young men in how they should treat girls. After watching thousands of Boy Scouts cheer on Trump and chant “lock her up” at their jamboree, my concerns are valid. We don’t need today’s generation of assholes to teach little boys to be little assholes that grow into old assholes.

Conservatives are freaking out over allowing girls into the Boy Scouts. They believe its political correctness threatening an organization where individual troops are overwhelmingly affiliated with churches. Twenty percent of Boy Scouts are Mormon. They don’t want the Boy Scouts to become like the Girl Scouts, which is open-minded and fairly progressive.

Girl Scouts are a secular organization. While the Boy Scouts have an official policy against atheists and agnostics participating in scouting, the Girl Scouts make it clear girls may substitute any words they like for the part of the Girl Scout Pledge in which they promise “to serve God.”

The Girl Scouts have long focused on social justice, diversity and inclusion in their activities. They have provided financial support to organizations like Oxfam, Amnesty International, and Doctors Without Borders.

Conservatives have been hating on the Girl Scouts for several years now. A Catholic church in Kansas City doesn’t want anything to do with them, and anti-abortion zealots have gone so far to boycott their cookies. They will have you believe the Girl Scouts are raising girls to become angry militant lesbians hawking cookies that finance baby killing. Overpriced baby-killing cookies, but oh so delicious.

I never joined the Boy Scouts. I was a Cub Scout for a time but lost interest before this cub grew into a boy. I was kinda sort of honorary Girl Scout. My mom was a den mother and would host the meetings in our house in Elgin, Illinois from the time I was in kindergarten to the second grade. Even at that early age I liked girls and was not going to be excluded when my basement was full of girls two years older than me. I’m sure my older sister and step-sister, along with all the other girls, found me annoying. Girls still find me annoying.

I was never much for conformity or joining things. I did join 4-H for about a week because I followed a girl into it in the 5th grade. I quit after I realized all they talked about were cows and tractors. That was the same year I was in the school band for about two weeks. How much does one have to suck to get kicked out of the 5th grade school band?

Hopefully, with a few girls in the Boy Scouts, the boys will learn that girls are their equal…and usually better. At the very least, maybe they can be better than the conservatives I witnessed this week attacking the mayor of San Juan for wearing a “#Nasty” T-shirt. It boggled my mind she was being vilified for wear the shirt while those attacking her were giving a pass to the sexist old man who called her “nasty.”

There isn’t a better time than now to allow girls into the Boy Scouts. Maybe the next generation of young men can be better than Donald Trump.

Creative note: If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know this. I started drawing my cartoon at 3:00 AM. Around 5:00 AM, I got this idea and I liked it a lot better. My previous cartoon was almost done and I already had two cups of coffee, but I started over anyway.

The Real Slim Shady


cjones10132017

During the George W. Bush administration, Kanye West claimed on national television that the president hated black people. How did the president and his White House respond to the accusation? They didn’t. They felt it best to take it on the chin and move on doing the business of government (whether they were doing it well or not). If Sir Mix-a-Lot had attacked Bush, I can’t imagine he would have responded with, “He’s lying, and he doesn’t like big butts plus, I heard he doesn’t appreciate a round thing in his face.” Of course, those were back in the good ole days when presidents were presidential.

There are rumors the toddlers in the Trump White House are working on a response to the harsh criticism rapper Eminem delivered Tuesday night on Donald Trump. I’m sure it’ll be brilliant since Trump did create the word “fake.” Perhaps Trump should instead attack Vanilla Ice because I think Eminem is out of his league.

Eminem is not the sort of artist whose work I’d purchase, but I do like a lot of his stuff (Check out the track “Stan.” It’s freaking brilliant). I recognize the man is a genius. He has an amazing skill with word placement, and only a genius is capable of freestyling the way he does. He’s spent his entire career attacking people in his music, usually over his personal issues. His victims have ranged from Fred Durst to Nsync to Moby, and even his ex-wife and own mother. On Tuesday night, he went after Trump.

Eminem free-styled in a video played at the BET Hip Hop Awards. In it, he accused Trump of racism, hypocrisy, disrespect of military veterans and much more in a nearly five-minute performance. He didn’t just attack Trump, he attacked Trump’s supporters.

He told Trump supporters who also like Slim Shady that they had to choose. He said if the decision was hard then he would make the decision for them, and he flipped them off. As someone who loses newspaper clients over complaints (and threats) from Trump sycophants, I can appreciate the smell-ya-later attitude.

Social media lit up over Eminem’s performance. It’s safe to say he’ll continue to have fans even after those who support Trump ditch him, though he broke up with them first.

If nothing else, they will always have Kid Rock. What do they know about talent anyway?

Creative note: I had fun with this but it was a LOT of work. I feel bad for my pal Karen who had to endure me bouncing rap lyrics off her. It took me several hours to even gear up to get into the zone to write this.

The rhymes here are actually to a beat I worked out on my guitar. You can create your own if you choose. I had to rewrite Eminem’s rap to fit this cartoon, though I did use his “racist grandpa” line. Funny thing, I included a reference to Putin and the 25th Amendment which might be the only two subjects Eminem didn’t bring up.

Bannon’s Blue Chips


cjones10122017

Former White House chief strategist, head of Breitbart, and poster boy for nationalism Steve Bannon isn’t just trying to redesign the Republican Party into his racist image, he’s trying to do that to America.

Bannon’s politics are so warped to the right, he was against Trump picking Christian zealot and homophobe Mike Pence as his V.P. pick. Say it with me now. Yikes!

Bannon’s first success in electing a nationalistic bigot was Donald Trump. Unfortunately for Bannon, Trump’s only true ideology and passion are Donald Trump. Plus, he’s an idiot. Bannon will need to stack the United States Senate with racists and Nazi sympathizers if he wants to see the United States truly become an authoritarian state subservient to one master.

Inspired by Roy Moore’s primary win in Alabama, Bannon has promised to make every Republican senator face a far-right candidate in their primaries. Well, every Republican senator except Ted Cruz, because he’s horrible enough. Bannon is also targeting Congress and is supporting a former-congressman and felon who’s running for the last Republican-held seat in New York City.

The only problem Bannon may have with the type of candidates he prefers is that they also tend to be kinda stupid. Roy Moore didn’t even know what DACA is and had to have a radio show host explain it to him. Perhaps, after the candidates assume office they can call Bannon who will tell them how to vote.

Bannon envisions an authoritarian nation that rules instead of governs. He wants a government where the head of state’s authority won’t be questioned, and the legislative branch is a paper tiger that folds at his will. The only reason current Republican officeholders are subservient to Trump is that they are afraid of his base. While Trump’s disapproval ratings among people who are not total maniacs hover around 70%, his approval among those who voted for him is around 90%. These are people satisfied with the job performance of a man who has yet to do his job. And, people who voted for Trump are OK with racism.

Bannon wants to replace Republicans who don’t play nice with Trump and don’t share his vision of a culture war and race-baiting politics. Bannon promised to “cut off the oxygen” to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and stop his fundraising for establishment candidates. He’s also called for Senator Bob Corker to resign because he had the gall to question Trump’s ability to serve as president.

He said Corker’s comments about the White House being run like a daycare center are unacceptable, and he had the “audacity” to make those comments to The New York Times. For Breitbart, a propaganda machine, an actual news source that informs people are the enemy.

Bannon said Republican incumbents have committed “economic hate crimes” against the “forgotten man.” What the hell is an economic hate crime? Also, when he says “forgotten,” he means white.

Bannon is declaring “war” on the GOP establishment and all those that don’t back what Trump ran on. He said there is a “new game in town.”

Bannon’s “war” isn’t just on the GOP. It’s on all of us who don’t want a xenophobic, nationalistic racist nation run by complete dumb-asses.

Democrats can’t be fooled into believing that scary, freaky far-right Bannonites toppling establishment Republicans is good for them. First off, the Democratic Party doesn’t have their act together. While they may find a few opportunities in Arizona and Nevada if those incumbent senators are defeated, there’s not much they can do in places like Alabama.

There are eight Republican-held Senate seats up for re-election in 2018. Expect Bannon to target Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Mississippi, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Tennessee. Bannon may also support candidates in states the Democrats are defending, like Florida, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Virginia (I won’t let Virginia happen).

We already have Ted Cruz in the Senate and Roy Moore is likely to join him. Can you imagine how truly horrible it will become if six or seven more like them are elected?

Putin will be so happy.

Will The Real FLOTUS Please Stand Up?


cjones10112017

Melania, Ivanka, Ivana…I get all these Eastern-European female vampire names confused. For the first lady, I prefer Michelle Obama.

Melania, Donald Trump’s third and current wife and mother of Barron is feuding with Trump’s first wife, Ivana, mother of Ivanka, Donald Jr., and Eric. Marla, the second wife, and mother of Tiffany, has stayed out of the tiff thus far. Did I confuse you differentiating between these women? It was intentional.

The battle of the gold-digging trollops is over who is the first lady. Ivana was giving an unimportant interview to Good Morning America when she said she tries not to call her ex-husband too much because “I don’t want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife. I’m first lady, OK?”

Obviously, it was a little joke and perhaps a dig, but would Melania really get jealous and territorial if Ivana called too much? Yes, she would, and did. Melania’s spokesperson issued a statement from the First Lady’s office because that office isn’t real busy to begin with, what with the anti-bullying campaign lying dormant. The statement read, “There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise.” which is Eastern-European female vampire lingo for “uh-uh. You better step off, bitch!” It’s sad when plastic trophy wives feud.

Technically, the real first lady is Melania Trump, which is its own spin-off disaster of the waking-up-in-the-night-screaming disaster that is the Trump administration. Melania continues to plagiarize from Michelle so maybe she agrees with me about our former FLOTUS. Melania doesn’t behave like a first lady. She’s supposedly campaigning against online bullying yet, keeps her trap shut every time her psychotic, man-baby husband cyber bullies like it is something he learned by watching Mean Girls. In contrast, Michelle Obama’s campaign was for healthy eating, and Republicans wanted her to scold her husband every time he ate a plate of chicken wings.

The real first bitch in this administration is Mike Pence. And no, I don’t use the term “bitch” in a sexist manner. It can be applied to men, probably more so than women. Being a woman doesn’t make one a bitch. Being someone’s bitch makes you a bitch. And, I just broke one of my rules which is, if you have to explain why you used a word then you probably shouldn’t use it (like when white people use the N-word). But, I’m gonna use it anyway for today. Mike Pence is a little bitch.

Mike Pence attended Sunday’s NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and Colts in Indianapolis (in a state where he used to be a bad governor which qualified him to be Trump’s bad vice president). During the National Anthem, several 49ers knelt. This offended Pence’s principles so much that he got up and left the game in protest at an event the administration says protests shouldn’t be allowed. He didn’t even stay long enough to get a hot dog. The man tweeted, “I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem”. It’s cute Mike Pence pretends he has principles.

The entire national brouhaha of black athletes protesting racial inequality in our nation by kneeling during the National Anthem was kinda dying down. Trump, who has used the issue to further divide the nation without even trying to understand why they’re protesting, ordered his vice president to attend the game just so he can walk out.

They didn’t take this opportunity to be sanctimonious douche bags. They created it.

Kellyanne Conway cries that this was not a staged political trick, even though the president has made it very clear that it was. Conway said to say it was a PR stunt is “outrageous, egregious and offensive.” When Kellyanne is using that many adjectives and sounding like Kramer’s lawyer on Seinfeld, you know she’s lying. Plus, she was talking which is another Kellyanne indicator of lying. She also said, “it takes a lot to get that man’s blood boiling.” She’s right. It does take a lot to get his blood boiling. His blood never boiled when Trump talked about grabbing pussies, praised Nazis, called the female mayor of San Juan “nasty,” made racist statements about Mexicans, or when he criticized American POWS and Gold Star Families. Nope, that man is a cool cucumber.

Pence flew to Indiana from Las Vegas. The press pool was told they shouldn’t even bother to leave their vehicles as Pence would only be there for a few minutes. Sure enough, Pence was only there for a few minutes and had a statement containing artwork prepared to go for the press. Pence then flew back out west, this time to California with his mother, I mean his wife.

The White House knew the 49ers would kneel. They’re from San Francisco which is in liberal San Francisco, California. They started the whole kneeling thing. They said they would kneel. Trump even tweeted that he ordered Pence, like his little bitch, to attend the game just so he could leave. He also tweeted that it was “long-planned.” These fuckers might wanna get on the same page as the sycophants they’re dispatching to defend them. It’s not a PR stunt, it is a PR stunt. Which is it?

Pence can’t give a speech without lavishing loving praise on Donald Trump. The phrase “under President Trump’s leadership” is always included at least once. It’s not delivered in the way praise is expressed in an American administration. It sounds more like something from North Korea. Mike Pence is a little poodle bitch there to take Trump’s orders and to forgo all principles, beliefs, and dignity.

The anthem protest isn’t about disrespecting our troops, the flag or a song. It’s about police brutality, racial inequality in our justice system, and in all aspects of America. Republicans aren’t able to comprehend that because they’re not critical thinkers. Plus, it’s just basic red meat to accuser others of being traitors while you shout “Murica!”. It’s really bizarre to me that the people accusing others of a lack of patriotism call the investigation into Russian meddling into our election as “fake news.” Patriots defend their nation. Traitors give cover to the bad guys invading it.

So, how much did this little PR stunt by Trump’s little snowflake bitch cost us, the American taxpayers? Around $250,000. Trump’s complaining how Puerto Rico is messing up our budget, but he’ll order poodle bitch to fly to Indiana to publicly display his panties are in a twist. In addition to the cost, it was a huge inconvenience for Indianapolis. They had to reroute traffic, plan security, tell fans to get there early…just so Mike Pence could spend thirty minutes at the game for a PR stunt.

The vice president of the United States was in the same building as a group of Americans who have a serious disagreement with the United States. A real leader would have used the opportunity to talk to them and attempt to at least understand why they’re upset. Mike Pence used it as an opportunity to stage a political spectacle and further divide the nation, and then he fled the scene.

Just like a little bitch.

Partisan Perversions


cjones10102017

It doesn’t matter if someone agrees with your politics or not, wrong is wrong.

Many Republicans continue to bring up Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and the multiple accusations leveled on him from women, despite the fact it all happened over 20 years ago (they keep playing the hits, relevancy be damned). These same people are real quiet about the charges against Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump, and the late Roger Ailes. They definitely keep their mouth shut over the pedophilia of former Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert.

With the revelations that big-time movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is just as bad as Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes, Democrats have an opportunity to show they’re less hypocritical than Republicans. We’ll see how they handle it. According to The New York Times, Weinstein has been paying off accusers for decades. Please note that this story was broken by the “fake news” liberal media, not Fox News or Breitbart.

Weinstein isn’t just a big deal in Hollywood. He’s huge. He co-founded Miramax with his brother, and after selling that company to Disney they founded The Weinstein Company. The man has been involved with huge films like Pulp Fiction, The Crying Game, Shakespeare In Love, Gangs Of New York, The English Patient, Good Will Hunting, Chocolat, The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, The King’s Speech, Inglourious Basterds, and way too many movies with Ben Affleck. Seriously. Go check out the Wiki page. It’s Affleck, Affleck, Affleck, Affleck, etc. He even gave us Jersey Girl. He is a bastard. But, he is such a giant in Hollywood, that a putrid turd like Jersey Girl doesn’t hurt. It only hurt Jennifer Lopez, and she was only in that movie for three minutes.

So, when a guy like Harvey Weinstein says to an actress, “let me strip down so you can give me a massage while I consider whether you should be in my movie or not,” there’s a little of pressure.

What is the deal with these old, creepy bastards? It’s never “hey, would you like to go out sometime?” No. It’s always the nude massage trick or calling you up to tell you that he’s not wearing any pants which is accompanied by heavy breathing.

While it’s terrible that a rich jerk like Donald Trump believes that being a star allows you to grab whoever and whatever you want, it’s equally if not more despicable to believe you can grab whoever and whatever based on your ability to create a star.

Weinstein has been fired from his own company. He stated,  “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it.” An adviser described him as “an old dinosaur learning new ways.” The fact that his behavior was commonplace a long time ago doesn’t make it right or acceptable, not then and not now. It’s a horrible excuse. Especially for someone who has spent years supporting liberal causes, which includes equality. It’s a national disgrace that it must be a partisan issue.

Weinstein has contributed to the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Barack Obama. Obama’s daughter, Malia, even interned for him. He’s contributed to many other Democrats, with three, Senators Al Franken, Patrick Leahy, and Martin Heinrich, contributing his donations to women advocacy groups. That money has predator germs, so they’re getting rid of it.

Republicans are jumping all over this. Fox News is highlighting the time Michelle Obama said Weinstein was a “wonderful person,” forgetting that their entire organization operated like a frat house for Ailes and O’Reilly. Even Trump, with a straight face, criticized Weinstein saying, “I’m not at all surprised,” yet he was defensive of Ailes, O’Reilly, and himself saying his own admittance of assaulting women was just “locker room talk.”

Republicans are hypocrites. We already knew that. Liberals need to take this opportunity to show they’re better than them and reject Weinstein and his money.

Electric In Costa Rica


crsta10012017

Here is last week’s cartoon for The Costa Rica Star. Electric cars are coming to Costa Rica. The Central-American nation is one of the world’s friendliest to the environment, so it’s no surprise they want more electric cars on their streets. There are fewer than 100 electrics on the streets now, but they say that more than half of the nation’s cars will be electric in ten years.

How serious is the nation? They’ve set up a station where consumers can charge their cars for free. The first is a prototype and out of the way for most people, but it presents how serious they are. Eventually, these stations will be hotels, airports, resorts, etc.

I’m kinda enticed by the idea of a car that doesn’t use gas, never needs an oil change because there’s no oil, no radiator, muffler, or the problems with emissions.

Creative note: I took yesterday off, watched the newest Pirates of the Caribbean movie and “The Big Sick,” and ate ice cream. New cartoon coming Monday morning. I go through withdrawal too.
