Conspiracy Theories

The Wiz


Brooklyn Nets basketball player Kyrie Irving made a lot of noise last season by refusing to be vaccinated against Covid and was eventually suspended. His issue with vaccines is that he’s a conspiracy theorist and believed a lot of the Qanon bullshit about them. Last season it was vaccines. This season, it’s antisemitism.

Kyrie tweeted a link to an antisemitic movie last week and refused to apologize or state he had no antisemitic views. The Nets suspended him indefinitely Thursday night and issued a statement saying, “Such failure to disavow antisemitism when given a clear opportunity to do so is deeply disturbing, is against the values of our organization, and constitutes conduct detrimental to the team.”

Then, Kyrie apologized. He said, “To All Jewish families and Communities that are hurt and affected from my post, I am deeply sorry to have caused you pain, and I apologize.” In case you didn’t notice, he still failed to state he doesn’t have antisemitic views. It’s one of those sorry-if-my-views-offended-you kinds of statements. He’s sorry if you’re hurt. He’s sorry if you’re “affected.” But he’s not condemning antisemitism. He’s not sorry he said it. You don’t even have to read between the lines to see what he’s doing here.

The Nets said Irving would be suspended without pay for a minimum of five games and “until he satisfies a series of objective remedial measures that address the harmful impact of his conduct.” The suspended-without-pay part is most likely the real reason he finally issued a kinda-sorta apology. I believe one of those required “remedial measures” for his suspension to be lifted should be a denouncement from Irving of antisemitism and antisemitic conspiracy theories, like the New World Order.

Kyrie claims that criticizing him for endorsing Alex Jones’ conspiracy theory of a New World Order is “dehumanizing” him… after he dehumanized Jews.

The movie he posted a link to is “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America,” which is based on a book by Ronald Dalton. It’s antisemitic and uses old tropes about Jewish people and their origins. It also claims the Holocaust is a hoax. Kyrie says he doesn’t agree with the entire movie but refused to state which specific parts he disagrees with. He said not to blame him for the movie he tweeted a link to, saying, “I’m not the one that made the documentary.”

When asked after a Nets practice if he believed the Holocaust occurred, he said, “Those falsehoods are unfortunate. And it’s not that I don’t believe in the Holocaust. I never said that. Never ever have said it. It’s not come out of my mouth. I never tweeted it. I never liked anything like it. So, the Holocaust in itself is an event that means something to a large group of people that suffered something that could have been avoided.” So it’s an “event” then? What kind of “event” Kyrie? What large group of people does it mean something to? Why does it mean something to them? “The Holocaust DID IN FACT occur” is another thing that’s “not come out” of Irving’s mouth.

Also on Thursday, Kyrie Irving posted on Instagram that he’d share a “factual explanation outlining the specific beliefs in the Documentary I agreed with and disagreed with.” We’re still waiting on that.

Kyrie and the Nets both committed to donating $500,000 to the Anti-Defamation League, but the ADL has refused Kyrie’s donation.

When asked by a reporter if he had any antisemitic beliefs, and to answer with either a “yes” or “no,” he stated, “I cannot be antisemitic if I know where I come from.”

Jonathan Greenblatt, the chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, lashed out saying, “The answer to the question, ‘Do you have any antisemitic beliefs’ is always ‘NO’ without equivocation.” Greenblatt tweeted, “We took @KyrieIrving at his word when he said he took responsibility, but today he did not make good on that promise. Kyrie clearly has a lot of work to do.”

Kyrie still hasn’t condemned the New World Order conspiracy theory and has stated he believes it’s true. What is it? It’s a very old conspiracy theory from before World War 1 that there’s a secret shadow government either working to control the world or already doing it. And it’s Jewish. Alex Jones has adopted it, made it his own, and claims New World Order is responsible for 9/11, Sandy Hook, the Oklahoma City bombing, vaccines causing autism, etc, etc. The belief is that there’s a secret “globalist” effort to control the world under one government. For Kyrie to fully denounce antisemitism, he needs to denounce this antisemitic conspiracy theory.

At this point of his career, the only team that may want to play ball with him would be the Wizards…and not the Wizards of Washington (who really need to change that name).

From Deep-State to Broke-State


A jury has ordered InfoWars head honcho and MAGA bullshitter Alex Jones to pay nearly $1 billion (that “b” is not a typo, kids) to the families of Sandy Hook for spreading lies that the massacre was staged. One lawyer said this is “probably one of the largest defamation verdicts in U.S. history.”

The families of victims in the attack that killed 20 children and six educators in Newtown, Connecticut said this proves that the truth matters. Jones’ supporters say it’s an attack on free speech.

But does free speech allow you to spread and profit off of lies and terrorist attacks where human beings were murdered? Alex Jones hasn’t just told funny lies like Lady Gaga performing a Satanic ritual during the Superbowl Halftime Show, or that the deep-state government poisoned water that turned all the frogs gay. He’s told lies that the government was responsible for the terrorist attack in Oklahoma City, 9/11, Sandy Hook, and even the Pizzagate bullshit. Defamation isn’t free speech. People should not be telling parents that the government was responsible for their child’s murder.

Jones labeled grieving parents of the Sandy Hook victims “crisis actors” and called the massacre “the fakest thing since the $3 bill.” He doesn’t blame the murderer or the weapon he used.

Why would Jones tell these lies? He said, “They’re clearly using this to go after our guns.” In addition to taking the blame away from guns, he’s also taking it away from White domestic terrorists.

Now Jones has been ordered to pay nearly $1 billion to the families, and punitive damages haven’t even been added. A Texas jury has ordered Jones to pay over $45 million in punitive damages and over $4 million in compensatory damages. Another trial by the parents of another shooting victim is expected to begin this year.

Jones was back in his InfoWars studio while the verdict was read. He pumped his fist in the air and said, “This is hilarious. Do these people actually think they’re getting any money?” He previously called the judge a “tyrant” and the jury a “kangaroo court.” Jones might know how to rake in millions with right-wing racist bullshit, but he’s still a dumbass.

Jones is hiding his wealth and claims he can’t pay. Appeals and bankruptcy may save him. It’ll be a long time before Jones pays if he ever does. But he’s using the verdicts to raise money. One “Christian” site that raises money for right-wing lying racist fucknut assholes has already raised over $185,000 out of a total goal of $500,000.

My prediction is he won’t pay all of it. I think the most families will get will come from asset seizes but I don’t expect much to be there. Jones hides his money and most of it may be out of the country. Jones himself may even flee the country eventually.

Like in the cartoon, Jones is currently begging for money with bullshit conspiracy theories. It’s just unfortunate he’s not doing it on the streets with the rats, though that is fortunate for the rats.

Creative note: This was drawn in a cheap hotel room in West Monroe, Louisiana. I partially grew up here and it’s where my family is from. Both of my parents are from this state. This place hasn’t changed very much. While it’s home, it’s not home anymore. My home is in Virginia. I’ll write more about coming “home” after I leave.

Music note: Since I am back in Louisiana, I listened to some Louisiana’s LeRoux, which I remember listening to on the radio while cruising around with my older brother. I also listened to “On and On” by Stephen Bishop and “Baker Street” by Gerry Rafferty because they always had a New Orleans vibe to me (probably the sax in “Baker Street” that does it, though the street, “Baker,” is actually in London).

Qrazy Love


Marjorie Taylor Greene’s husband is leaving her which makes a lot of sense because he’s married to Marjorie Taylor Greene. According to court documents, Perry Greene is filing on the grounds that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” Perry is also asking the Floyd County Superior Court to seal the divorce proceedings, “because the parties’ significant privacy interest in sealing the records outweighs the public’s minuscule interest in access to said records.”

With that, I believe we should show the Greenes the same respect they’ve given to others throughout their lives.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a vile disgusting troglodyte pig person.

This is a person who’s attacked non-binary people. She stalked school-shooting survivor David Hogg, following him as he walked down the street, taunting him and calling him a “crisis actor.” She went to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional office and shouted through her mail slot.

She’s an anti-semite who spread conspiracy theories about George Soros being a Nazi and that California wildfires were started by Jewish space lasers controlled by the Rothchilds.

She claimed Dr. Anthony Fauci created the coronavirus in a Wuhan laboratory.

She claims the 2020 election was stolen and also requested that Donald Trump grant her a pardon for her involvement in trying to steal the election.

She claimed that Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib took their congressional oaths on the Quran which invalidates their membership in Congress (it wouldn’t). She claims President Obama is a Muslim.

She’s written dozens of articles for at least two conspiracy websites. She’s also helped push the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.

She’s called for violence against congressional colleagues, Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She lost all her committee assignments for her violent rhetoric.

She claimed Pelosi’s “Gazpacho” police were spying on Republicans. She believes Bill Gates is growing fake meat in “peach tree” dishes.

She hangs out with Klansmen and white supremacists like Nick Fuentes and Chester Doles.

After her company received $182,300 from the Paycheck Protection Program, she donated $450,000 to her congressional campaign.

She claimed the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, was committed by Antifa members dressed as Trump supporters.

She was one of 21 House Republicans who voted against a resolution to award the Congressional Gold Medal to police officers who defended the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

She claims the contraceptive Plan B “kills a baby in the womb” when it actually prevents ovulation and thus prevents pregnancy.

She claimed vaccine passports would be President Biden’s “mark of the beast.”

She claimed Speaker Pelosi’s requirement that House members continue wearing masks until they all prove they have been vaccinated “is exactly the (same) type of abuse” as Jews being “put in trains and taken to gas chambers” in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

Three weeks after apologizing for the Holocaust comment, she compared Biden’s suggestion to provide door-to-door vaccinations to “medical brownshirts” and said, “You can’t force people to be part of the human experiment.”

She sent a letter to President Biden demanding that he investigate Dr. Fauci and to provide her with a response by June 31 when there are only 30 days in June. Dr. Fauci probably killed June 31.

She claimed Covid wasn’t dangerous for people who aren’t fatties or over 65.

She claimed Donald Trump would be reinstated by August 2021…or at least by June 31.

She opposes foreign aid and said our U.S. money shouldn’t be going to China, Russia, the middle east, or Guam (which is part of the USA).

On Steve Bannon’s radio show, she said if she had the authority to, she would kick out every Chinese person in the United States who is loyal to the Chinese Communist Party.

She claimed the shooting at Highland Park on July 4 was “designed to make Republicans go along with more gun control” because the shooting occurred “in a rich, white neighborhood”. She also said, “We didn’t see that at all the Pride parades in the month of June” and that “As soon as we hit MAGA month … we have shootings on July Fourth”. July is MAGA month?

She co-sponsored a bill to ban U.S. embassies from flying Pride flags.

She put a poster outside her office that said “There are TWO genders: Male & Female. Trust The Science!” which was to taunt her colleague across the hall who has a transgender daughter.

She claimed straight people would go extinct within less than two centuries due to LGBT-inclusive educators, calling them “trans terrorists”. She also falsely claimed the shooter at Robb Elementary was transgender.

Ya’ know what? I just looked at the rest of the shit she believes and has claimed and it’s extremely long. I don’t have all day. Anyway, she’s a hateful bigoted Qanon conspiracy theorist who doesn’t deserve for me to spend more time on today. I got other things to do.

My point is about her divorce, boo-fucking-hoo.

Music note: I listened to Foo Fighters and Chili Peppers.

Creative note: I started this cartoon yesterday morning and right after I had it spellchecked by Laura and Hilary, I thought of the Sharpie/hurricane cartoon. I liked that one much better and decided to do it then, pushing this one aside. I had decided this one would be placed on the back burner until the next hurricane, if not dead forever…but I changed my mind this morning. I still liked it.

Space Tripping with the King


You don’t need a blog today. More importantly, I don’t need to write a blog after drawing until 4 p.m. on a Saturday.

There are a lot more important things I should probably be covering since I have covered the Alex Jones story already, but this was too much fun.

I don’t think my entire readership put together can find all the Easter eggs in this cartoon. Good luck.

Update, all the Easter eggs found by readers so far:
I don’t give away the Easter eggs, and people ask me all the time what something is before it’s been found. What’s the point of hiding Easter eggs if I have to point them out? I have put thousands of Easter eggs in my cartoons that still haven’t been found. But, these have been found so I’m gonna go ahead and spill them in case you’re still searching.

Nixon’s head in a jar (nod to Futurama).
Space cat (I made him up).
Elvis’ banana sandwich.
Elvis’ “TCB” belt buckle.
Bumper sticker “You can have my ray gun when you pry it out from my cold dead tentacles.”
Borg Cube.
Millenium Falcon.
Meteor Worm from “The Empire Strikes Back” chasing Millenium Falcon.
“Keep Altair IV Weird” bumper sticker from “Forbidden Planet.”
Aurebesh (Star Wars alphabet) bumper sticker translated to “shit happens.”
And perhaps the toughest catch of them all, the galaxy on Orion’s belt from “Men In Black.”

And, some people are finding things that aren’t actually there.

Music note: I listened to Kaiser Chiefs and Kings of Leon. No Elvis.

Big Fat Liar


If you’re a gaslighting conspiracy theorist with a national platform spreading bullshit that defames, libels, and tears apart democracy, you better have good lawyers. Alex Jones, fortunately for the rest of us who hate lies, conspiracy theories, and bullshit, does not have good lawyers.

Alex Jones is a conspiracy theorist as it’s his business. He knows the bullshit he’s spreading is fake. Conspiracy theories are his business but lying is his nature. He’s also not intelligent enough to get away with it. Yesterday, Alex Jones was busted during cross-examination of not just being a liar, but of withholding evidence. And, the revelations came from his own legal team. Oopsies.

Jones (no relation to yours truly) is currently defending himself from defamation lawsuits brought by the families for lies he had spread about the 2012 school shooting. For years, he’s been telling lies that the shootings never happened. From his conspiracy theories of the government turning frogs gay to COVID vaccines creating Monkeypox to Lady Gaga performing a Satanic ritual during the Super Bowl halftime show, this one about Sandy Hook may be the most hurtful. The problem is, there are people who believe it.

Jones did not create the Pizzagate conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton and other Democrats were operating a Satanic sex trafficking ring of babies from the basement of a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor, but he promoted it on his show. The man who showed up and shot an assault rifle into the pizza parlor over this story was a big fan of InfoWars, Alex Jones’ platform.

When the pizza shooting happened, Alex Jones backtracked and issued a public statement that Pizzagate wasn’t real, even though he was one of its biggest advocates. Yesterday, faced with evidence he’s a liar, he backtracked on his Sandy Hook lies.

Alex Jones is a big fat sweaty coward.

He helped Donald Trump and Steve Bannon engineer the turnout for the January 6 attack on the Capitol. He promoted the Big Lie that Donald Trump won the election. On that January 6, 2021, he was at the Capitol. He used a bullhorn to direct the crowd of Trump terrorists. He told them which doors to go in. He was at those doors, pointing them out to the angry crowd. Once they started breaking, he ran off faster than you can say “Josh Hawley” and assumed a broadcast position overlooking the terrorist attack from where he blamed…you’re gonna love this…Antifa.

Alex Jones is a big fat sweaty liar. He can’t even own his own bullshit. He can’t take responsibility for his actions. It’s starting to look like he’s about to.

In testimony on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, Jones continued to insist that he had complied with court orders to produce documents and testimony in the run-up to the defamation trials. In fact, his losses by default in four other defamation cases resulted from his failure to produce those materials.

During cross-examination yesterday, the lawyer for the Sandy Hook families said to Jones, “Mr. Jones, did you know that 12 days ago, your attorneys messed up and sent me an entire digital copy of your entire cellphone with every text message you’ve sent for the past two years?”

This is important because Jones had claimed for years that he had searched his phone for texts about the Sandy Hook cases and found none. Oops.

The lawyer, Mark Bankston, then asked, “You know what perjury is, right?” If he doesn’t, he’s about to find out.

Bankston also presented financial records that contradicted Jones’s claim under oath on Tuesday that he was bankrupt. The lawyer produced financial records indicating that Jones was earning as much as $800,000 per day in recent years by selling diet supplements, gun paraphernalia, and survivalist gear in ads accompanying his broadcasts.

Bankston also aired clips from Jones’ broadcasts attacking the judge and jury in the case. The clips showed the judge, Maya Guerra Gamble, engulfed in flames with Jones saying, “That’s justice burning right there.”
Did I mention Jones was stupid?

Another InfoWars broadcast show in court falsely linked the judge to pedophilia and human trafficking and claimed Jones’ political enemies had handpicked “blue-collar” people who “don’t know what planet they’re on” and are ill-equipped to decide what monetary damages he must pay to serve on the jury.

The texts also revealed that he knew he was promoting lies about the coronavirus pandemic. Jones received a text from a staff member saying his coronavirus lie was “another Sandy Hook,” which he agreed with showing that he knew both were lies. On Wednesday, his coronavirus lie was still on his InfoWars website. Once again, oopsies.

Now, Jones is going to be paying out his Pinocchio nose to the families. But it gets worse. It gets so so much worse.

Bankston estimated that the files relayed to him in a major flub by Jones’ lawyers contained several hundred gigabytes of material. Golly-gee wilikers. I wonder who else might want to see those text messages? Perhaps the January 6 Committee investigating the Trump white nationalist terrorist attack? Maybe the Justice Department, that’s also investigating the white nationalist terrorist attack. Here comes that word again. Oopsie.

Another fun detail: Jones’ lawyers did NOT challenge the evidence they accidentally sent. How are these lawyers going to remain in business after this? Will they change their names? Maybe “Lionel Hutz” is available.

It was fun to watch Jones visibly uncomfortable for most of the 40-minute cross-examination, sweat running into his eyes and down his neck, saying he believed “100 percent” that the shooting occurred.

What will be more fun than that will be watching his expression when the final number, decided by the jury he called stupid, is read aloud that he has to pay to the Sandy Hook families, who are seeking $150 million in damages. And there’s one thing that will be even more fun than that.

I’m going to enjoy the hell out of Alex Jones going to prison.

Don’t Look Up


CjonesRGB12292021

Did you miss me? I took a couple days off through Christmas. Do you remember the last time a day went by, less enough two when you didn’t get a new cartoon from me? I can’t. Instead of drawing cartoons, I hung out by myself during Christmas weekend eating Chinese food and watching movies.

I can’t remember everything I watched but what stood out for me was Klaus, a Boy Called Christmas, Hawkeye (the Marvel series), Encanto, Love Hard, and Don’t Look Up.

Don’t Look Up has been the subject of a lot of conversations since it premiered on Netflix. It’s trending on Twitter. There’s a lot of debate, not just over the message in it, but whether it’s a good movie or not. It seems that most critics hate it. But what do critics know?

If you haven’t seen it or heard about it, Don’t Look Up is a comedy on Netflix that is a parody of a lot of the shit we’ve lived through over the past few years.

I’m going to try not to give any spoilers, but if you haven’t seen the movie and want to be totally surprised and entertained, don’t read the rest of the blog:

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as an astronomer and he and his grad student, played by Jennifer Lawrence, discover a planet-killing comet headed directly to Earth and giving our planet six months before its doomsday. The world reacts with indifference.

Meryl Streep is president and after being informed of this planet-killing comet, she wants to “sit tight and assess.” She talks about her poll numbers during a briefing (who does that remind you of?). Her chief-of-staff is her son (who does that remind you of?), played by John Hill. They ignore the impending disaster (what does that remind you of?), they politicize the comet (what does that remind you of?), when the administration does want to focus on the comet, it’s only to distract from a political scandal (what does that remind you of?), they try to make money off the comet (would we do that?), and one of the scientists is villainized by the press and administration for alerting the public of the coming disaster (who does that remind you of?).

Eventually, two sides emerge. Those who believe the comet is coming and those who think it’s a hoax. “Don’t look up” becomes a right-wing slogan.

The film has an amazing cast. I think the best performances came from Jonah Hill, Rob Morgan, Jennifer Lawrence, and Meryl Streep. I felt Leo was out of his element in a comedy and failed to really deliver a great performance, which is unlike him. I guess as great of an actor as he is, he’s no Tom Hanks, or even a Will Ferrell, who can bounce back and forth from comedies to dramas. In fact, Will Ferrell’s movie-making partner, Adam McKay, wrote, directed, and produced this movie. Do NOT let that scare you off as he’s made other tongue-in-cheek dramedies like Vice. I hope Adam McKay keeps making political movies.

Despite this great cast of heavyweights, I didn’t think the movie was that good. At first, I felt that maybe just because it’s making an important point about climate change, the pandemic, Trumpers, capitalism, an unequal economic system, and just how vile the last administration was, that liberals are supposed to like it, never mind if it sucks. It’s a great concept. I made a post about it on Facebook and invited my friends to give their own reviews. They were mixed.

One friend asked me what it was that I didn’t like about it. That made me think. In fact, the entire thread made me think and I realized that even though it’s not a great movie, there were aspects I did like. Maybe this is another Big Lebowski where nobody likes it until years later.

Another friend on Twitter compared it to Dr. Strangelove, which many others have compared it to as well, except my pal called it a “TikTok Strangelove.” I think that’s pretty accurate. But, I think I found the real problem with this movie.

When Donald Trump began his presidential campaign in 2015, I struggled to caricature the guy. Then I realized I was trying to draw a cartoon of someone who was already a cartoon. I was trying to lampoon a human being who was more a collection of vile personality traits than he was a human being. So, I went crazier with the caricature. A lot of Republicans have pointed out that my Trump caricature doesn’t physically look like Trump, but they all know it’s Trump.

Often with Trump and his goons, I found it hard to draw satire on what was already insane. I would sometimes draw a cartoon of exactly what happened, without adding any spin. What I learned was that it’s hard to satirize satire. How do you parody insanity? So, I learned how to draw cartoons making fun of what was already a satire. It was a problem other cartoonists and Saturday Night Live had to figure out as well. What do you do when newspaper headlines look like they came from The Onion?

The problem with Don’t Look Up is that it doesn’t ever fully figure out how to satirize satire. People refusing to look up and see what’s coming straight at them isn’t that far removed from people voting for Donald Trump even after hundreds of thousands die from his ineptitude. This paradoy of denial isn’t that far removed from Republicans saying vaccines don’t work while the virus is literally killing the unvaccinated, most of whom are Republicans. The denial in the movie isn’t that far removed from people denying they lost an election.

It’s hard to use Don’t Look Up as satire when here in reality, people are refusing to look up. People in this nation refuse to see what’s right in front of them. Documentaries of the Trump administration are funnier, in a scary way, than the movie Don’t Look Up.

Don’t Look Up uses the tagline, “Based on truly possible events.” But here in the real world, the Trump administration was an actual event. The storming of the Capitol by white nationalists to overturn the election and install Trump as a fascist dictator was an actual event.

The film Don’t Look Up probably hopes to make people look up instead of just entertaining those who have been looking up for the past six years. This film will not change minds. I know this from experience as I don’t think I’ve changed one mind with my cartoons over the past six years. Don’t Look Up will remain a film for the choir it preaches to. It’s not like Trumpers would understand this movie or see themselves in it anyway.

But, this much analysis means this movie deserves another chance. I’m going to watch it again. If you haven’t seen it, I encourage you to watch it. Don’t just settle for my impression of it. Watch it, then let me know in the comments what you think.

Look up.

One America Haters


Cjones10112021

According to a report by Reuters, which is an actual news source, AT&T helped create the far-right NON-news source One America News (OAN). Reuters’ report has been confirmed by CNN another legitimate news source. Why is this significant? Because AT&T owns CNN.

Full disclosure time: I work for CNN. I am a freelancer who provides one cartoon each week for the CNN Opinion newsletter. But I’m still a small fish in the grand scheme of things and I’m probably more on AT&T’s radar as a customer than I am as a freelance employee. Ya’ see, my wireless service is through AT&T. My iPhone was purchased at AT&T. My iPad was also purchased at AT&T. I am making payments to AT&T each month for my wireless service, iPhone, and iPad. Fun fact: This cartoon poking fun at AT&T was drawn on an iPad purchased from AT&T. Also, this cartoon making fun of Facebook has already been posted on Facebook. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Anyway…CNN has covered this story as they should. They cover criticism of competing networks and other news outlets all the time. As fair and responsible journalists, they are required to cover it. Check out this clip of Don Lemon and Oliver Darcy. Lemon and Darcy are not the only CNN people to tackle this subject. Don Lemon said what airs from OAN is as “corrosive as anything that comes from Facebook.”

One America News is NOT a news source. It’s a conspiracy network, but AT&T, which owns Time Warner, probably views it as just another revenue stream to put on TV like Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodean (I don’t know who owns those but they’re on AT&T platforms). Now, with OAN, we have the Yee-Haw Network.

Robert Herring, who is the founder and chief executive of OAN, has testified that the inspiration to launch his network in 2013 came from AT&T executives.

AT&T-owns television platforms, including satellite broadcaster DirecTV. AT&T is the largest communications company on the planet. They’re bigger than Oprah. According to Herring in a 2019 deposition, “They (AT&T) told us they wanted a conservative network. They only had one, which was Fox News, and they had seven others on the other (liberals) side. When they said that, I jumped to it and built one.” Now, according to a 2020 sworn testimony by an OAN accountant, AT&T accounts for 90 percent of OAN’s revenue.

Herring has testified he was offered $250 million for OAN in 2019. Without the DirecTV deal, the accountant said under oath, the network’s value “would be zero.”

Take one moment to let this sink in: If it wasn’t for the owners of CNN, how much would Fox News be worth? Fox News is on those same platforms.

AT&T may be looking to break CNN off from Time Warner and sell it to pay off debts, which makes you wonder if AT&T views CNN, one of the nation’s best news outlets, the same way they view OAN, one of America’s most notorious bullshit outlets. Corporations may only see dollar signs.

While AT&T can claim responsibility for facts and journalism being provided to the world from the USA’s best news network, they’re also responsible for helping push lies and conspiracy theories about the Big Lie Trump won the election and spreading conspiracy theories about the coronavirus.

AT&T defended itself saying it’s not a revenue stream for OAN and they initially refused to carry the network on DirecTV, but did cave after OAN sued them. AT&T says they don’t control any programming and any decisions to continue carrying OAN will be up to DirecTV, which has been spun off into its own separate company….with 70 percent still owned by AT&T (somebody does research. Cough. Cough).

NAACP President Derrick Johnson said in a statement issued on Wednesday, “We are outraged to learn that AT&T has been funneling tens of millions of dollars into OAN since the network’s inception. As a result, AT&T has caused irreparable damage to our democracy. The press should inform the American public with facts, not far-right propaganda and conspiracy theories.”

AT&T may not be the press, but they are caretakers of journalism and a media giant. There should be corporate responsibility. Hell, I get mad at news outlets for publishing far-right conspiracy MAGAt cartoons, and the syndicates that distribute them. For syndicates like Cagle Cartoon and my former agency, Creators Syndicate, there’s no accepted responsibility for poisoning our nation with toxic bullshit. While all sides should be presented equally, there should be a line that stops at conspiracy theories. It’s bad enough news outlets have to quote Donald Trump.

I’m sure executives at AT&T aren’t writing copy for OAN, which is a network for people who find Tucker Carlson too woke. But, according to these reports, there wouldn’t be an OAN to poison our nation if it wasn’t for the efforts and enthusiasm of executives at AT&T.

And if AT&T gets mad at me for this, Hey, AT&T guys….I’m just an insignificant small fry. Nobody cares about me. Nobody reads this blog. Look at Don Lemon! Yeah, that guy was doing all sorts of smack-talking about you, and he was doing it in front of millions of viewers. Did you hear him say “corrosive”? You should go deal with him and ignore what’s going on over here. Tomorrow, I might go back to making jokes about Nickelback. I’m crazy. Nobody listens to me. Also, have I told you how much I love the iPad you sold me? It’s really wonderful and the iPhone, don’t get me started. I love the way my iPad rides on my iPhone’s hotspot when I leave my home…and did I mention I bought Airpods too? See? I’m not that bad. Right? Hello?

Another fun fact: It’s time for me to draw this week’s cartoon for CNN. Pray for me.

Creative note: I was going to put AT&T’s spokesperson, Lilly, in this cartoon. She’s to AT&T what Flo is to that insurance company and the gecko is to that other insurance company (see how well advertising works?). But, I didn’t know if Lilly was known well enough and I kinda have a crush on her. So, she escaped my wrath unscathed this time. Lilly, call me.

Vax That Salad


Cjones09252021

I had a stop-the-presses moment last night.

Like I do every day, I had jotted down potential topics to cartoon about. Some of the topics are heavy subjects, like immigration, the debt ceiling, Texas abortion, missing indigenous people and Gabby Petito, Haiti, Trump’s lawsuits, etc, etc. As I said before, I like to have a definite idea (not just a concept) for my next cartoon before going to bed. I will toss and turn all night and have nightmares of crosshatching if I don’t. Seriously, I have dreams of crosshatching.

Around 11:00 P.M, I heard the news about disgraced scumbag General and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. This guy is a piece of work. But, my gears went into motion for a Flynn cartoon. I wrote down three ideas and was giggling with each of them. I cracked open a Blue Moon while amusing myself and kept writing, self-editing, more writing, another Blue Moon, and then at 2:00 A.M, I said to myself, “Oh my god, it’s 2:00 A.M.” I knew I had my idea and I should get some sleep. The debt ceiling can wait. Michael Flynn said something stupid.

Flynn was forced into retirement from the military and there are rumors this is because he’s a raving lunatic. President Obama knew Flynn was a liar and had him removed from his position as Assistant Director of National Intelligence. During Flynn’s tenure, he became the first official from the United States invited into the Russian Military Intelligence headquarters in Moscow, which was seriously frowned upon by our government. He attempted a second visit which was thwarted. Then, he tried to get Russian intelligence officials inside the headquarters for the Central Intelligence Agency, which was knocked down by James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence. There was concern, and it was reported by other officials that Flynn may have been compromised by the Russians. Ya’ think?

After he was fired, he was paid to speak at a Moscow event where he shared a table with Vladimir Putin. He later argued that Russia didn’t pay him. They paid his agent who then paid him. It’s that kind of logic that’ll get you a high-ranking position with the Trump administration…that and being compromised by the Russians.

President Obama advised Donald Trump NOT to hire Michael Flynn, probably because he’s compromised by the Russians. So naturally, Trump hired Michael Flynn as his National Security Adviser, and once again, proving President Obama is much smarter than he is. Flynn didn’t last a month as he had to be fired, supposedly for lying to the vice-president (sic) over his communications with…take a guess…Russians.

Later, he struck a plea-bargain admitting guilt in lying to the FBI which he later recanted probably because he knew he’d get a Trump pardon. Trump’s Justice Department tried to drop the case that Robert Mueller has already sent to the courts. Later, Donald Trump pardoned Flynn.

Then, Flynn took an oath pledging loyalty to Qanon which supersedes the oath he took swearing loyalty and to protect the United States and Constitution. In the aftermath of Trump losing the election, Flynn, and the attorney they shared, conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell, met with Trump in the Oval Office and suggested he suspend the Constitution, silence the press (people like me), declare martial law, and use the military to conduct a new election. Remember, this fucker took an oath to defend our nation and the Constitution and he’s in the Oval freaking Office, after being compromised by Russians and lying to the FBI, advocating the president (sic) suspend the Constitution and overthrow an election with a military coup. Go to Hell, Michael Flynn.

After Trump left the White House, because he lost the election to President Biden by seven million votes, Flynn voiced support for a “Myanmar-style coup” to restore Trump to power. Then, he got banned from Twitter for life.

Like all Trump supporters, and Trump himself, Michael Flynn was never about loyalty to the United States, patriotism, democracy, the Constitution, or free elections. Remember when we all shared those same principles, no matter our party affiliation? Turns out during all those years, Republicans were lying. Reinstating, or putting anybody in the White House without winning an election is un-American (except you, Gerald Ford, but that was a technicality). Even spreading the Big Lie is un-American.

That was just a brief summary of the lunacy, criminality, and sedition of Michael Flynn. There’s much more. Oh, so much more. There’s a lot about his denial and theories of the coronavirus and vaccines. He’s claimed in the past that the coronavirus is a hoax, was used to destroy Trump and to control us, and that you need a vaccine passport to travel. Now, he should know that’s a lie because he’s been traveling all over the country to speak at lunatic conventions about how you need a vaccine passport to travel. And last night, he supported a brand new conspiracy theory that the vaccine is being hidden in food, specifically salad dressing.

As a reader of mine already pointed out on the posting of this cartoon on Facebook, that dressing would Russian.

Appearing on some internet conspiracy show, Flynn said, “Somebody sent me a thing this morning where they’re talking about putting the vaccine into salad dressing. Or salads. Have you seen this? I mean it’s—and I’m thinking to myself, this is the Bizarro World, right? This is definitely the Bizarro World. … These people are seriously thinking about how to impose their will on us in our society, and it has to stop.” Really, Michael? A “thing?” I got a thing for ya’, you lying disgusting betraying traitor.

What is bizarre is Flynn was actually our National Security Adviser for 24 days. No, not the 24-days part.

There is a study by the University of California researching how vaccines could be grown in food, like plants (in case you’re a Republican, plants are what most salads consist of), so people could ingest their vaccines instead of being jabbed. But this is for the future, not now, and not to trick people. It probably won’t even be for COVID because hopefully, and if idiots like Flynn could stop getting in the way of it, COVID won’t exist anymore by the time we get edible vax.

There are people researching time travel and I know for a fact that doesn’t exist yet because if it did, Donald Trump never would have been president and we’d all be saying, “Michael Flynn who?”. Researching something doesn’t mean we have it. Wilbur and Orville had to research flight before they could actually fly. They didn’t just suddenly put a pair of wings on a bicycle and go, “Wheeee!”

I also know the government isn’t hiding vaccines to the coronavirus in salads. How do I know this? Because if the deep-state government people were hiding the vaccine to trick Trump cultists and Republicans, they wouldn’t be hiding it in salads. That wouldn’t help us stop the virus at all.

How do you trick a dog to eat a pill? You wrap the pill in cheese or peanut butter. You don’t put the pill inside cauliflower. You want the dog to eat it, not just look at with a quizzical expression. And if you give a dog cauliflower, he might run away. I would.

So Michael Flynn is trying to suggest the vaccine is hidden in a patch of arugula? Why didn’t he just claim it’s in sushi? We’d never get the vaccine inside them if they have to learn how to use chopsticks. Fork that!

But, Republicans aren’t eating a lot of vegetables. Look at Trump. He’s never eaten a salad in his life. He thinks the five food groups are, KFC, Big Macs, ketchup, hot dogs, and Arby’s. George H.W. Bush took an official presidential position against broccoli. The entire Republican Party freaked out when First Lady Michelle Obama tried to introduce more salads to America’s schoolchildren. No, if are going to hide the vaccine to trick Republicans, which will be easier than getting dogs to eat cheese, we’ll hide it in some shit they’ll actually eat.

Let’s start with Chick-fil-a. If nothing else, we can scare them from eating there and helping Chick-fil-a finance homophobic hate groups.

Here’s the plan, folks: We hide the vaccine in food the Chick-fil-a menu. We put that shit in their nuggets, their chicken sandwiches, their waffle fries. We’ll even put it in the lemonade. Chick-fil-a has salads but like the ones at McDonalds, I’m sure they’re just for show. Who the fuck goes to McDonalds to eat a salad?

Now, on Sundays, since Chick-fil-a is closed because they’re religious zealots, we’ll hide the vax in food at Cracker Barrel and Cheesecake Factory. Although we’re not actually doing any of this, let’s just say we are…and spread the word.

We, here at Deep-State Incorporated, in conjunction with our reptilian people baby-eating brethren, by praying to Satan, have also created an inhalable vaccine. We’re putting that in MyPillows.

Spread the word.

Hunka-Hunka Recount


CNN05232021

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday. 

I did something really stupid the other day, but it worked out.

I sent a few ideas earlier than usual to my CNN editor last Friday. We can work pretty late, so when he called me at 9:00 A.M. to tell me he wanted us to go with one of the three ideas I had just sent, I was thrilled. That meant I could finish up early, go outside, skip, frolic, and play. But I talked him out of using that cartoon and I had to go back to writing ideas. It worked out for the best.

I got the Elvis idea. In fact, I had three Elvis ideas and this was my favorite, and I still finished early. Plus, I liked this cartoon a lot better than the one I talked him out of using. It’s a lot of fun to draw Elvis, aliens, and spaceships. I also had fun with the bumper stickers and banana sandwiches. The “Memphis” bumper sticker isn’t as much for Elvis as it is for one of my colleagues at CNN who is from Memphis.

And in case you’ve never had one, banana sandwiches are delicious.

Long Night In The Q Patch


cjones03092021

After election day and Joe Biden passed Donald Trump in the vote count, Republicans held onto hope, with many believing that Trump would come back and win the presidency. When that didn’t happen, hope turned into conspiracy theories and Republicans truly became fucknuts.

Trumplicans believed that on December 20, the day electors meet in their respective states and cast their votes for president and vice-president, that Trump would be given an Electoral College victory which the GOP would have had to pull out of their asses. Republicans, including the president (sic) of the United States believed electors in several of those states would defy the will of their people and hand the election to Donald Trump. Donald Trump even invited legislators from Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania to the White House to convince and strong-arm them to overturn the election. That didn’t work. Even Big Macs under heat lamps didn’t sway them.

Trump’s lawyers filed over 60 lawsuits across the nation with each one failing. They held press conferences where Rudy Giuliani’s hair melted. There were hearings held in state capitals where legislatures actually patronized Rudy…for which he only brought conspiracy theories, insane witnesses, and farts. Trump’s other lawyer, Sidney Powell, spread conspiracy theories that voting machines created by the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, financed by George Soros, controlled by President Obama, President Bill Clinton, and Secretary Hillary Clinton, switched votes from Trump to Biden.

Senator Lindsey Graham, who represents South Carolina (in case you’re a Republican, is NOT Georgia), called officials in Georgia to convince them to give the state to Trump even though President Joe Biden had won it. Then, Donald Trump called officials in the state and threatened and demanded they make up votes to give him so he could surpass Biden in the count. And some people are saying, “Hmmmm…maybe that’s illegal.”

December 20 came and went and Joe Biden was still the President-Elect. Then, Trump called his supporters, you know, terrorists, to come to Washington, D.C. on January 6, when Congress was certifying the election. His white nationalist terrorists attacked the Capitol, wounding many and killing cops, to overturn the election. It was a bloody coup attempt. But the count went on and Joe Biden was officially President-Elect of the United States of America.

Then, the Qanon crowd believed Trump would enact martial law and during Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, the military would rush the podium and arrest him and Kamala Harris. For good measure, they’d also arrest President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Lady Gaga was probably in trouble too. Nobody was arrested, there was no martial law, and from the looks of it, everybody had a good time…except for Mike Pence. He looked like that guy at the party nobody wants to talk to.

Instead of declaring martial law, Donald Trump flew down to Florida. He refused to attend the inauguration because he’s a whiny little baby. He even left before noon so he could use Air Force One one last time without having to ask the incoming president for permission. Usually, the outgoing president does use Air Force One to leave the capital, but they only do so with the grace and permission of the incoming president…as long as they return it with a full tank. This request has never been refused. But, Donald Trump didn’t want to ask Joe Biden because that would have been an admittance Biden is president.

Donald Trump is the first president to refuse a peaceful transfer of power. He delayed the presidential transition, thus endangering the nation and trying to leave as much of a mess as possible for Biden to clean up. He delayed briefings on national security for the President-Elect. Donald Trump put himself before the security of this nation. And on a petty score, he refused to invite the President-Elect and incoming First Lady to the White House. For the record, President Obama invited Trump and Melania to the White House, greeted them on the steps of the White House on inauguration day, and attended the ceremony. Do you know who else was at Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2016? Joe Biden.

Election Day didn’t work out for Trump supporters. Then December 20, January 6, and January 20 didn’t work out for them. Finally, Qanon fucknuts can accept they lost, it’s over, Trump is now a former president (sic), Joe Biden is President, and it’s time to move on. Right? Wrong.

They decided that March 4 was the date Donald Trump would return and become president again…or something like that. What is this based on? Glad you asked because it’s crazy.

In 1871, Congress passed the District of Columbia Organic Act. This made the District of Columbia a self-governing body, a municipal corporation. It has no relation to the presidency. But, Qanon fucknuts believe that on this date, the United States of America became a corporation which is controlled by foreigners and a deep state of satanic-worshipping baby-eating pedophiles along with assorted lizard people.

Why March 4? Because that’s when lizard people’s eggs hatch? Is that when baby blood starts to turn so you better drink up? No. That’s when presidents used to be inaugurated. Congress moved the inauguration to January 20 after passing the 20th Amendment to the Constitution in 1933, the same year Franklin Delano Roosevelt ended the gold standard. QAnon believers argue that in ending the gold standard, Roosevelt transferred power to a group of shadowy foreign investors who have since been controlling the US government.

We’re about to get deeper: Qanon fucks believed that Ulysses Grant was the last legitimate president. Thus, when Trump returned on March 4, he would become the 19th president and the first legitimate president since Grant. But wait. Wouldn’t that mean Donald Trump was never president from 2017 to January, 2021? Shut up.

I also don’t get why Grant was the last legitimate president. Roosevelt’s first inauguration was on March 4, so was Herbert Hoover’s one. One, because he was a one-term loser like Donald Trump. If someone can explain this about the inauguration date (and I’ve researched), leave it in the comments.

Others also believe that Trump and Biden are actually working together, Trump never left, he’s still here, and it’s all a ruse because…wait for it…Trump and Biden switched bodies.

Trump me on this. Nobody wants to switch bodies with Donald Trump.

So, now that March 4 has passed, I guess it’s over. Right? Wrong.

Qanon fucknuts have moved the goal posts to March 20. Why March 20? The only thing I can find is that’s when many believe the Republican Party was founded in 1854. Of course back then, the Republican Party was the liberal party. The Qanon Shaman and Marjorie Taylor Greene have nothing in common with Abraham Lincoln.

Oh yeah, they also believe Trump still controls the military and on the 20th, he’s going to round up everyone who voted to impeach him or merely said bad things about him, and have them all arrested along with…Oh, sweet mother of monkey milk…the Pope.

Nobody tell the Qanon goons that President George Washington’s first inauguration was held on April 30. That would mean when Donald Trump does come back, he’ll be the second legitimate president.

Of course, all this shit persists because Qanon is a cult, being a Trump supporter is being in a cult, and Donald Trump won’t say anything to debunk any of this. This is the same guy who secretly took the covid vaccine. Why in secret and not do it in public like Biden, Harris, Obama, Clinton, Bush, etc? Because it would hurt the campaign he waged politicizing the virus, again, putting himself before the safety of the country he swore to protect. Or maybe, when he took the vaccine, it was really a serum for body switching with Joe Biden. Yeah! That’s it! And it was administered by a lizard guy in a doctor’s coat.

And everyone said, “Hey, Clay. What are you going to draw when Trump is gone? You’re going to miss Trump.” I haven’t had time to miss Trump.

Creative note: Usually when a cartoonist uses another cartoonist’s creation and characters in a cartoon, they write “apologies to” the cartoonist they borrowed from. I forgot to do that. And if anything, I really owe Charles Schulz an apology for making Linus a member of Qanon.

Correction: I originally had Hoover with TWO inaugurations. But, he only had one. Kudos to Robert Coutinho (who sent me an email) and the reader in the comments who caught it.
