Britney Spears

Hit Steve Bannon One More Time


CjonesRGB11152021

Maybe America is correcting itself. Britney is free and Bannon is probably going to prison.

Britney Spears is finally free from the conservatorship managed by her father that controlled her life and career. During this time, the conservatorship paid out millions to the people keeping it alive, including her father, mother, entertainment firms, assistants, and lawyers. Preventing Britney from choosing how to spend her own money became an industry that made a lot of people richer. I hope she gets a lot of that back.

Britney was not allowed to make any of her own life and financial decisions. She wasn’t allowed to carry a credit card. She was forced to use an IUD to prevent her from having another baby. Hey, pregnant pop stars usually can’t tour and make their conservatorship money.

Her father got around $5 million to make sure Britney didn’t waste her money on stupid stuff, like giving her father $5 million. Daddy Dearest gave himself a $16,000 monthly salary from his daughter’s money because conservatoring a daughter’s life and career is hard. His monthly salary was more than the allowance he gave his daughter. He was also paid $2,000 for office space. This guy’s in Louisiana, right? Couldn’t he have just run his office from the back of a truck like Mr. Haney in Green Acres?

For some reason, Papa Spears has also been receiving royalties from her albums and tours. And then, he hired lawyers and managers to manage her money and career. Basically, he took the money and hired other people to do the work.

He also hired a firm, with Britney’s money, to spy on Britney. They even recorded what she was doing in her bedroom.

Hell, Britney even had to pay all the legal fees to fight her from ending the conservatorship. She paid one lawyer over $332,000 who later said he never knew he could petition to end the conservatorship. Even Rudy Giuliani and Sydney Powell would probably be better lawyers than this guy.

I don’t know why, but the conservatorship has also been paying for Britney’s mom to live in a mansion in Louisiana for the past 13 years. It pays all her utilities and has even hired a maid service.

Someone should probably hire a maid service to clean up Steve Bannon’s bullshit.

Steve Bannon was indicted Friday by a Washington, D.C. grand jury and will reportedly turn himself in to authorities on Monday. Bannon refused to comply with subpoenas from the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. The committee wants him to testify and is seeking documents related to the attack.

Bannon used Trump’s claim of executive privilege despite the fact he wasn’t working for the administration at the time of the insurrection, isn’t Trump’s lawyer (or even a lawyer), and the fact Donald Trump is not president (sic) anymore. What they’re trying to do is run out the clock.

The plan is to keep stalling and dragging their feet until January 2023. They’re hoping Republicans retake the House in the 2022 midterms and kill this committee after they’re sworn in. They will do that on day one if things go their way.

If Trump, Bannon, and all the rest of the white nationalist goons were innocent, they could want to testify to the committee. But the thing is, they’re all guilty. They’re all corrupt. Each of them attempted to overturn an election through a mob coup and install Trump as a fascist dictator. Watching Bannon go to jail may change the minds of all the others, like Mark Meadows, Stephen Miller, Jason Miller, Michael Flynn, Kayleigh McEnany, Katrina Pierson, and all the other goons who’ve promised to defy the law in name of Trumpism. Previously, they could count on a Trump pardon. Not so much now. After going to prison, the only jobs most of these goons will be able to land are gigs at Fox News, One America, and maybe hosting podcasts for white nationalists.

The real irony here is they’re all screaming about a fraudulent election that wasn’t fraudulent, and hoping to use the next election to kill all future elections. If Trump is elected again in 2024, goodbye, American democracy.

Bannon, who was already pardoned by Trump for grifting, will probably get a jail sentence between a month and a year. I’m predicting a month because none of these people ever truly get what they deserve.

Britney should be free. Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and all the co-conspirators who helped them try to destroy our nation should all receive life in prison.

The DOJ needs to hit them, baby, one more time.

Oops. White People Did It Again


Cjones09272021

Did you know in Wyoming, the state where Gabby Petito went missing, that over 700 indigenous people, over half of them women, went missing over the past decade?

Did you know over 50 percent of missing person cases involving a white individual gets news coverage while only 30 percent of missing indigenous people is covered?

Did you know over 11 percent of indigenous people are found within a week while 50 percent of white people are found in that time span? You do now.

And I know it now too as I wasn’t aware of any of that until a white blonde social media darling went missing.

Mary Johnson, a citizen of the Tulalip Tribes in Washington state went missing ten months ago. Last week, ten months after she went missing, the FBI offered a reward for information about her disappearance. Why did that take ten months?

Mary’s older sister said, “If that was a little white girl out there or a white woman, I’m sure they would have had helicopters, airplanes and dogs and searches.” And why shouldn’t she believe that? She believes that because it’s true.

John Walsh, the host of America’s Most Wanted, is doing everything he can to help police capture Gabby Petito’s fiancé, who’s a suspect in her homicide. Oh yeah. Gabby’s body has been found. Gabby’s disappearance will be examined on Walsh’s other show, “In Pursuit with John Walsh.” Maybe John Walsh has covered the disappearance of non-white women, but Gabby has definitely leaped over a LOT of non-white people who went missing before her. Maybe his show should be called, “In pursuit, if the victim is white, with John Walsh.”

Why is there a greater emphasis to find a missing white woman over non-white women? That is definitely racism. I guess part of white privilege is that if we’re murdered, they’ll probably find our body quicker than murdered darker skin people. We get taxis, promotions, less hassle at airports from TSA, and our discovered corpses.

Why is there greater media coverage for missing white people than for missing non-whites? That is racism but also ratings. But, why do missing white people bring in greater ratings than missing non-white people? Maybe Gabby’s coverage is because she was a social media personality while also being cute and blonde.

And I’m just as guilty as anyone else with this because I did a cartoon on Gabby before I even knew about the missing indigenous women. I wasn’t even aware of this issue until the journalists, whose shoulders I stand on, reported it. Now, it’s getting more coverage. But, when I did my last cartoon comparing the concern for Gabby to concern for Haitians at the border. I got screamed at by a lot of white people. This latest cartoon is on Twitter and already, I’ve been screamed at. Stop telling us things we don’t want to know!

This is not to downplay the tragedy of Gabby Petito. It’s to bring awareness so maybe other missing women receive the same attention and awareness as Gabby. I’m being accused of ignoring the abuse of a white woman by people ignoring the abuse of non-white women.

I’m not saying we should stop trying to end abuse of one some women while ignoring that of others. Can’t we help all of them? Can’t we at least stop ignoring women who need our help?

Meanwhile, we’re still talking about freeing Britney.

Note: I accidently reversed the states in the third panel. Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader, it was caught and I corrected it. Sorry.

Oops, I Drew It Again


Cjones06282021

Britney Spears and her father have issues, and guess what. I’m on Britney’s side.

Spears is in a conservatorship where her father controls her life. He controls everything from who she’s friends with, who she dates, to the color of her kitchen. Spears is probably worth around $60 million and she’s on a $2,000 a week allowance.

You may think $2,000 a week is nice. I’m sure it is, but the entire $60 million is hers. What does her father get for controlling her life? He’s not just doing it out of love for his daughter. He is paid $16,000 a month, which is more than Britney gets. He also gets $2,000 for office expenses in Kentwood, Louisiana. Additionally, he gets a percentage of her tours, albums, and merchandising.

Yesterday, Britney went to court in Los Angeles and pleaded with the judge to end the conservatorship and allow her to control her own life. In her plea, she claimed she’s been forced to be on birth control for the past 13 years. She also claimed she’s been drugged and forced at times to work against her will.

She argued, “I shouldn’t be in a conservatorship if I can work. The laws need to change. I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. I don’t feel like I can live a full life.”

Her father gained control over her life in 2008 when he petitioned the court to give him control after there were concerns over her mental health and possible substance abuse. Since then, he has controlled Britney to the point that she didn’t even know she could petition to end the conservatorship until 2014. She has a court-appointed lawyer. Why didn’t he make her aware of this sooner?

After she spoke out about the choreography for a planned Las Vegas residency, and objecting over certain dance moves, the conservatorship objected, and forced her into involuntary medical evaluations and rehab…because she spoke up for herself…over dance moves.

Britney made the point in court that she can “make a living for so many people and pay so many people,” while not having control over the money she’s earning. Conservatorships are usually last resorts for people who cannot care for themselves, including those with serious disabilities or dementia. If Britney is one of those, then how can she perform on a level that financially supports so many people?

Britney said she knows she still needs therapy, but she’d like the freedom to get married and have another child, visit friends, and even choose the color of her fingernails.

Britney will probably make mistakes in the future. She may blow her money on some stupid shit. But, she’s an adult. She’s almost 40 years old. Michael Jackson wasn’t in a conservatorship and he was marrying Lisa Marie Presley, buying monkeys, and saving his urine in a jar. Nicolas Cage keeps spending millions of dollars on mansions, castles, cars, islands, dinosaur skulls, and comic books. He’s been married five times, with one of those also being to Lisa Marie Presley. Why isn’t Lisa Marie Presley, who’s been married four times, in a conservatorship? Who’s she gonna marry next? Gary Busey?

Anyone wanting to get married a second time should probably go under mental evaluations, but I digress.

Free Britney. Also, if anyone has the number for Lisa Marie Presley…
