White House Exorcism


cjones01162021

The House of Representatives will most likely impeach Donald Trump tomorrow…for a second time.

Donald Trump will be the only president to have been impeached twice…and deservedly so. This time, there may be a few Republicans voting yes. Last time, not one single Republican in the House or Senate, except Mitt Romney, thought it was wrong for Donald Trump to ask a foreign nation to help him win reelection. This time, only most of them don’t think it’s wrong for an American president to incite terrorists.

The really ridiculous part of this is, Republicans in Congress don’t want to impeach or remove Trump after he sent terrorists…to attack THEM.

One of my dumbass MAGA cartoonist colleagues wrote that it was kinda nice watching Democrats “cower in fear.” Dumbass. Republicans were cowering in fear too. The terrorists had zip ties and they probably weren’t just seeking out Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, and Adam Schiff. They were looking for Mike Pence. In fact, they were chanting, “Hang Mike Pence.” One of them even brought a noose. Others brought Molotov cocktails and pipe bombs.

While there’s been a lot of talk about impeachment and the 25th Amendment, let’s talk about the 14th Amendment.

In Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, it reads: No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

That means if you engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States of America, then you shouldn’t be in Congress. That seems right. Anyone who attacks an election doesn’t deserve to hold elected office. This doesn’t mean Congress should think about or consider removing seditious members…it means they HAVE to remove them. It means Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, and especially Mo Brooks, who was riling up the terrorists at the hate rally before the attack, should be expelled from Congress. And for good measure, Congress should remove every single member who objected to the electoral college. They are a disability and they should be expelled.

Members of Congress shouldn’t be removed because we don’t like the way they think or talk. They should be kicked out for attacking a free and fair election based on lies and conspiracy theories. These are adults who have access to facts. If a political cartoonist, me, can get the facts, so can a member of Congress. Every member who opposed the election did so for political expediency…not to save the nation. Their pandering to Donald Trump and the MAGA base fed into a conspiracy theory which supported a terrorist attack…and will enable attacks the Trump Terrorists are planning for next week.

These members sold their souls, but not to the devil. They sold their souls to Donald Trump…which is kinda like the devil. Now, a lot of them want their souls back or will pretend like they never sold them. Any Republican who was a Never Trumper, then became an ass-kissing lickspittle troglodyte toadie sycophant, will probably return to being a Never Trumper and act like they never liked the guy. Half the fuckers who inspired the terrorists are now condemning the attack they enabled. Next week, they’ll forget the attack ever happened.

Let’s not let them pretend to forget or gaslight the terrorist attack they supported. Kick them out now. Impeach Trump. Exorcise Congress. Clean out the poison. When World War II was over, Germany didn’t keep the Nazis in power. They didn’t send Nazis to the Bundestag. But you know there were Nazis who claimed they never were Nazis. After January 20, we’re going to have MAGAts claiming they’ve always been Never Trumpers. We may need to take the Aldo Raine technique with them so it’s a uniform they can’t take off.

As for Trump, when we exorcise him, we’re not trying to save him. We’re trying to save our nation, our democracy, our Constitution, the United States of America.

We need to exorcise MAGA.

Impeach Baby


cjones01152021

During the 2016 presidential campaign, President Barack Obama said Donald Trump was “uniquely unqualified” to be president. Donald Trump wasn’t just unqualified to be president. His level of being unqualified was unique. He proved it time and time again.

Donald Trump proved he wasn’t qualified when he asked Russia to help him win in 2016. He proved it during a debate with Hillary Clinton when he said he’d use the Justice Department to go after his enemies. He proved it when he didn’t seem to understand how tariffs work. He proved it when he instituted a policy of ripping families apart and throwing babies in jail. He proved it when he talked about “shithole countries” and said “send them back” about brown female congresswomen. He proved it when he defended tiki-torch Nazis. He proved it by endorsing violence by his thugs and goons. He proved it when he told Proud Boys to “stand by.” He proved it when he asked Ukraine to help him steal an election. He proved it when he asked Congressional Republicans to help him steal an election. He proved it when he took Russia’s side over Americans. He proved it when he slept through briefings reporting that Putin paid bounties on American troops. He proved it when he told his fucknut base that an election was corrupt. He proved it when he sat on his ass and ignored a pandemic that has killed nearly 380,000 Americans.

The final straw was his proving it when he incited his base of terrorists to attack Congress in order to install him as a dictator. Osama bin Laden and Donald Trump are two men who sent terrorists to attack our capitol building. Donald Trump is uniquely unqualified and now, uniquely dangerous.

There are fewer than two weeks before Joe Biden is sworn in and can start to repair the damage from this disaster of a presidency. But what will Trump do in that time?

Donald Trump was still praising terrorists, telling them they’re special and that he loved them after the attack. He didn’t condemn it until his staff pressured him over the threat of being removed. Then, Donald Trump finally conceded that he will not be president after January 20 (a lot of his followers believe the “transitioning to a ‘new’ administration” is a “new” Trump administration without Mike Pence. Seriously). So, since Trump caved, you may believe he’s learned his lesson and will be on his best behavior, whatever that looks like, until the 20th.

After Donald Trump was impeached, Maine Senator Susan Collins said he learned his lesson…then he started firing everybody who testified against him and started breaking laws again. Republicans haven’t learned their lessons either. You can’t trust Donald Trump. Don’t believe me? Go ask Mike Pence.

During the riot, Mike Pence and his family were in the capitol. There were goons with zip ties seeking him out. Donald Trump called senators in the capitol…not to check on Pence’s safety but to keep strategizing on how to steal the election.

Donald Trump doesn’t learn morals, ethics, or lessons. After four years, you think he’s going to learn in the last two weeks? Get the fuck out of here.

And Donald Trump should get the fuck out of here.

The best thing for everyone would be if Donald Trump resigned, but since he hasn’t done it yet, that’s not going to happen.

The second best thing would be for his cabinet to remove him. Of course, they haven’t learned yet that we can’t trust Donald Trump. There are arguments that removing him will make uniting the nation even more difficult. But really? That ship has sailed. Quite frankly, I don’t give a rat’s ass about unifying with people who support terrorists. I don’t need unity with people who put a cult of racist personality before their nation. I don’t need unity with people who bring pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails to a protest. Unity with zip-tie guy and Chewbacca bikini? Unity Schmunity.

That brings us to impeachment. Sure, it won’t remove him…even if the Senate was on board. There’s no way both chambers in Congress could move that fast and cooperate…even if you get ten Republicans in the Senate who realize Donald Trump is freaking lunatic and a threat to national security, and agree to toss him out. Plus, there are still traitors and supporters of terrorists in both chambers. By the way, all those idiots need to be removed too, and that includes my treasonous Congressman, Rob Wittman.

Call me “Crazy,” but I don’t think people who oppose elections should hold elected office.

Impeach Donald Trump anyway. A second impeachment will be a larger stain on the worst president in the history of all presidents, and that includes the president of the New York Jets (who by the way, is a Trump appointee as an ambassador). Congress impeached Bill Clinton for receiving oral sex and I don’t think that killed anybody. Trump riot: Five dead (maybe six). Clinton blowjob: Zero deaths and a happy president. After the blowjob, nobody worried about Clinton nuking Ottawa.

And if you can get the Senate to go along, impeachment and conviction may bar him from serving again. There’s a huge dispute on that.

Let’s touch on that dispute. There are memes going around that a “removed” president can not receive his pension, office, staff, Secret Service protection, and other assorted goodies. The argument here is: If he’s removed, then he’s no longer a “former” president, which is what the law says he must be to collect all the benefits. If Congress does not remove him and the Senate convicts him AFTER he’s president, then he’s still a “former” president and will still be eligible for the benefits. You can’t remove somebody after they’re gone. I’m unsure about him being eligible for running again. But make note, being in prison does NOT prohibit one from running for president. People in prison have run for president…from prison. And still that guy wasn’t “uniquely” unqualified for the presidency.

The most important thing (after not playing with the nuclear codes) is that Donald Trump not be president again. Nearly half this nation still supports him. A poll over the weekend showed that 45% of Republicans approved the terrorist attack on Congress. 53% say it’s not Trump’s fault. 50% of Republicans called the terrorists “protesters” and 30% called them “patriots.”

If Mike Pence and the cabinet are patriots, they’ll remove him NOW. Now! Now! Now! As it is, the terrorists are planning another attack, perhaps on the 20th. If I know this, then Donald Trump knows it. Has Donald Trump issued a statement telling his supports to “stand down?” No.

Make the White House like the house in Amityville and have a loud voice say, “GET OUT!” And now it occurs to me, have we considered an exorcism?

Taps For Terrorists


cjones01142021

Ashli Babbitt was a veteran of the United States Air Force. She spent six years in an Air National Guard unit whose mandate, ironically, is to defend the Washington region and respond to civil unrest. Its nickname: the Capital Guardians. Her family describes her as a patriot. Ashli Babbitt died Wednesday attacking the United States Capitol building.

Kevin Greeson’s family said, “He was not there to participate in violence or rioting, nor did he condone such actions.” Yet, Greeson was inside the Capitol building participating in the riot. Officially, he died from a heart attack from all the excitement. Others say the heart attack was provoked when he tasered himself by accident…in the genitals.

Benjamin Philips was a Trump supporter from Pennsylvania. He didn’t make it back to PA because he suffered a stroke during the riot.

Rosanne Boyland told her family back in her home of Georgia, “I’m going to stand on the sidelines. I’m just going to show my support.” She died inside the Capitol Rotunda. Capitol Police say she collapsed and couldn’t be saved. Others on the scene say she was trampled by the MAGA mob.

All four of these people are being called patriots. But each of those who participated in the riot and attack on our nation’s capital are not patriots. They are terrorists.

These terrorists are being turned into martyrs by the Trump cult, a cult that claims it’s patriotic and get upset over someone kneeling during the national anthem, but turns around and supports a terrorist attack on our nation.

These terrorists went to Washington to change the leadership of our government through violence. That’s insurrection, sedition, and terrorism. While claiming they were fighting for liberty, freedom, and democracy, they were fighting to disenfranchise millions of voters.

The Trump Cult opposes peaceful protests by Black Lives Matter and any time there is violence or looting from the protests, they’re quick to call it a riot. They’re still calling what happened Wednesday a “protest.” It was a “protest” where participants brought guns, Molotov cocktails, and pipe bombs.

What happened Wednesday by Trump supporters is the very definition of terrorism.

But how is it terrorism when they’re passionate about their beliefs? Those 19 hijackers on 9/11 were also passionate about their beliefs. One difference between the terrorists on 9/11 and the terrorists on 1/6, the 9/11 guys weren’t traitors. The Trump Terrorists’ “passion” is based on lies and conspiracy theories. They follow a cult leader. Osama bin Laden and Donald Trump have both ordered attacks on our nation’s capital.

We are no longer post-9/11. Now, we are post-1/6. Which is worse? An attack on our nation by a terrorist based in Afghanistan or an attack on our nation by a terrorist living in the White House?

All these tMAGA terrorists were incited by Donald Trump. White House sources say he was thrilled during the attack. After the attack, before he condemned it, he told the MAGA mob they were “special” and “we love” them. Ivanka Trump sent, then deleted, a tweet calling the terrorists “patriots.”

Donald Trump told the mob to go to Capitol Hill and “fight like hell.” Rudy Giuliani urged “trial by combat.” You can argue those were just provocative political speeches, but the terrorists went directly from the hate rally to Capitol Hill, which they proceeded to attack. During the attack, instead of calling and ordering the military to defend Capitol Hill, Trump was calling congressmen and senators to continue objecting to the electoral college. Donald Trump’s priority was to save himself, not the nation.

Ashli Babbitt took an oath to defend and protect this nation. So did Donald Trump. So did all the members of Congress who tried to overturn a democratically-held election, then continued their attempt to overthrow an election after the riot. These traitors, terrorists, and supporters of terror all betrayed their country. Coups are not patriotic. Destroying a republic is not very Republican.

This cartoon and column will be controversial, but it shouldn’t be. We should not be afraid to call these people terrorists. They did not die for their country. They died attacking their country and trying to install a fascist dictator through violence. We should not be afraid to call them what they are. They are terrorists. If you support them, you support terrorists who attack America. You also lost all credibility to oppose any protest…ever.

The one patriot who died (so far) from the attack is Brian Sicknick, a Capitol Police officer who died during the attack defending our nation’s capitol building and those who serve in it. Today, the flags over Capitol Hill are flying at half-mast. The flag over the White House not been lowered. Why?

The flags have not been lowered over the White House to pay respects to Office Sicknick because Donald Trump and his supporters don’t love America or those who serve it. Donald Trump and MAGA love terrorists. He said so himself.

Horny For The Inauguration


cjones01132021

Months ago, I was wondering if Donald Trump would attend the inauguration if he lost the election. I even brought it up to an editor who replied, “Who cares?”. This was before the election. Now, a lot of people do seem to care.

When I was thinking about it months ago, I didn’t factor in Trump refusing to accept the election results and spending months fighting in courts and lying about it. And while I have been worried over the past four years of Trump violence, and even violence if he lost the election, I definitely did not predict that Donald Trump would send terrorists to attack the capitol building of our government.

Donald Trump is not attending the 59th inauguration of an American president because he’s a whiny baby. But his attendance WAS important in that it would be a public display of a transfer of power…a willing transfer of power. Even though Donald Trump has finally conceded he won’t be president after January 20, he hasn’t conceded that he lost. His presence, even though awkward, uncomfortable, and totally unpleasant for everyone else attending, was kinda required. If nothing else, it would have been a display for the MAGA mob that this is how our government is supposed to work, even after the worst presidency in the history of all presidencies.

Now after the events of the past week, Donald Trump is not welcome. His announcement on Twitter, before he was banned, that he’s not attending was welcomed. Joe Biden doesn’t want him there. Nobody wants him there. In fact, he doesn’t deserve to be in attendance anymore than he deserves to be on Twitter. Donald Trump doesn’t deserve to be on that podium anymore than Osama bin Laden deserves to be on that podium, because they’re both terrorists.

Osama bin Laden sent terrorists to attack Capitol Hill…and so did Donald Trump. Only difference is, patriots thwarted bin Laden’s terrorists but Trump’s made it.

Trump also doesn’t deserve to be in OUR White House and the sooner he gets out, the better for the nation.

As for the horny guy who crashed into the capitol building, the Trump Cult initially claimed he was a member of Antifa breaking and entering into the building to make the MAGA mob look bad. It was part of their confusing messaging of it wasn’t them and they’d never do such a horrible thing while saying it was patriotic. Trying to understand MAGAt reasoning can give you a brain injury.

Of course, the guy is not a member of Antifa (nobody is because Antifa doesn’t exist). What he is is a right-wing terrorist and a member of the Qanon conspiracy cult. He’s from Arizona and his name is Jake Angeli. He’s an actor you will never see in anything. He is sometimes referred to as the “Qanon Shaman,” whatever the hell that’s supposed to be. Despite the lie being spread by the likes of Sarah Palin and Matt Gaetz that he was a member of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, he’s been spotted at several Trump rallies, once with a sign reading, “Q sent me.” There’s also a photo of him with Rudy Giuliani.

Someone on social media posted, “We spend over $750 billion annually on defense, and the center of American government fell in two hours to Duck Dynasty and the guy in the Chewbacca bikini.”

Note: I’m going to be asked why I didn’t include the sippy cup. Sometimes I forget and others times, it doesn’t fit. This time, I didn’t include it because I liked the posture in the cartoon and having his arm in another position would have messed that up. The sippy cup has become such a thing now that I felt I needed to make a note about why it’s not there.

Update: Jacob Anthony Chansley is the Qanon Shaman, Jake Angeli. He was arrested yesterday and charged with entering restricted grounds and disrupting Capitol business in Washington. As more witnesses come forward, his charges will probably increase. The idiot was identified by his tattoos and pictures of the attack he posted on social media. Even the al Qaida hijackers didn’t take selfies on the planes. He told the FBI he came as a part of a group effort with other “patriots” from Arizona at the request of the President (sic) that all “patriots” come to D.C. on January 6, 2021. So, he just made himself a witness in Trump’s prosecution.

Trump Twitter Ban


cjones01122021

Donald Trump has been a national security threat for the past four years, but Twitter just now got the memo.

Early this evening, Twitter decided to make their 12-hour ban of Trump a permanent one, citing his potential to incite another riot. In fact, there are currently more threats of a follow-up attack on Capitol Hill and new ones on state capitals.

Watch for the entire Parler platform to be removed by its host. Also, watch for whiny butt-hurt MAGAts.

If we can’t trust Donald Trump with a social media account, then we can’t trust him with the nuclear codes.

White Privilege Riot


cjones01112021

Like many other liberals, I have a few MAGA friends among my Facebook friends. I usually don’t talk to them and over time, the number dwindles as they usually unfriend me. But today, I’m going to use my friend-for-now, Lynn in Oklahoma, as an example.

Lynn has always been kinda nice and I’ve only met her once in person over the past ten years or so since we’ve been friends. And with all due respect to Lynn, she’s an idiot. Lynn believed Trump would win the election…and she still believes Trump is going to win the election. She believes that yesterday when Trump said a “new” administration would be taking over, that on January 20, it’ll be a new Trump administration. Lynn says it’s not over. Lynn is an idiot but perhaps attention should be paid to her as before the riots in Washington began, Lynn was online bragging about the upcoming attack in Washington.

Lynn spent days posting on Facebook about how “patriots” were going to force Congress to give Trump the election and prevent Biden from ever taking power. Surely, Lynn has been hanging out on other sites besides Facebook but she’s not special, as Trump described his mob. Everybody knew there was a large mob headed to Washington to “protest” on January 6.

You did not not have hang out in the hate forums to know this. You don’t even need a social media account to know it was going to happen. Donald Trump, the president (sic) was tweeting about it which the news covered. Everybody knew an angry mob of conspiracy-minded, democracy-hating goons were headed to the nation’s capital. Everyone knew except for the people in charge of defending the nation’s capital.

You may think that you don’t call out the military for a protest. Protests are a Constitutionally-protected right. But, last June, the military was all over Washington, D.C. for the Black Lives Matter protests. Even on election night, helicopters were following BLM marchers through the city. And these marchers weren’t breaking anything.

Last June, the DC National Guard was on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to prevent protesters from going in. It’s an open-air memorial and there’s nothing there to break. Wednesday, the MAGA Mob, incited by Donald Trump for days, had already broken into the capitol building, breaking windows, destroying federal property, taking the speaker stand in the Senate chamber, destroying the office of the Speaker of the House, and even stealing property before the National Guard was even called.

Why wasn’t Washington prepared? They knew this was coming. The leader of the federal government incited it. He called them out. He said something “wild” would happen January 6. After threatening for days they were going to attack the capital, the federal government did nothing to prepare. But for Black Lives Matter, planning protests in the streets, the big guns were called out.

Last June, BLM protesters were given a curfew to get off the streets, even though they were peaceful. Before the curfew took effect, Donald Trump had them teargassed and chased away from Lafayette Square in front of the White House so he could take a photo-op outside a church while holding a Bible upside-down.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump held a rally in Washington and told his MAGAts to storm the capitol building. He told them to be tough. Rudy Giuliani called for “trial by combat.” Donald Trump Jr. told the crowd to “stand up and fight.” Daddy Trump told them, “Let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue,” and promised he would “be there with you.” Instead, he ran back to his bunker inside the White House which can barely be seen for all the security around it.

There were 88 arrests from one protest last June. Wednesday, there were only 26 arrests on Capitol Hill.

The man photographed in Nancy Pelosi’s office with his feet on her desk, who vandalized the place and stole government documents, is white nationalist Richard Barnett from Arkansas (shocker).

White nationalist Richard Barnett, who broke into and vandalized the office of the Speaker of the House, gave interviews to the national media where he brandished documents he stole. Law enforcement knows who he is, knows his face, and they know where he lives. And yet, he’s still a free man. That is some serious white privilege.

Update: At 1:46 PM today, January 8, 2021, CNN reported that the FBI arrested Barnett in Little Rock, Arkansas.

A black protest wouldn’t have made it up the steps of the capitol building less enough, through the doors. There’s no way in Hell a member of the Black Panthers would have ever made it to Mitch McConnell’s office to put his feet on the desk.

There were only 26 arrests on Capitol Hill Wednesday…and they even killed a cop. The Capitol Police, for their part, killed one of the terrorists. How many would they have killed if had been a cop-killing black protests? How many cops did Black Lives Matter kill last year? None. MAGA brought Molotov cocktails and pipe bombs to the capital. Black Lives Matter, did not.

MAGA has killed more police than Antifa or Black Lives Matter. Yet, who gets the military called out before the protest even starts?

The police and military in Washington failed. Their failure is based in systemic racism.

White privilege extends to white terrorists.

Not Antifa


cjones01102021

On September 11, 2001, passengers on Flight 93 sacrificed their lives to prevent the plane overtaken by terrorists from flying into our nation’s capitol building. On January, 6, 2021, the President (sic) of the United States of America sent terrorists to that same capitol building to stage an insurrection, attempt a coup, and commit sedition.

Immediately after photos were posted online of the MAGA mob breaking into the capitol, vandalizing offices, breaking windows, threatening lives, and leaving pipe bombs, the Trump cult claimed the terrorists were Antifa. Of course, this was wrong and immediately debunked.

The crowd went straight from a Trump rally to the capitol building. Donald Trump did NOT speak at an Antifa rally.

Whataboutism doesn’t justify and excuse your horrible actions. Even if Antifa burned down the capitol building last year, it wouldn’t justify what the Trump mob did yesterday.

And the sycophants online, they couldn’t keep their bullshit straight. One minute, they were calling the goons Antifa, the next minute, they were calling them patriots. I saw one conservative colleague call them Antifa then turn around and demand the same mourning that George Floyd received be given to Ashli Babbitt, the MAGAt shot and killed yesterday by Capitol Police while she was breaking through a door committing a terrorist act. My question to him is: Why should we mourn her if she was Antifa? Hmm?

Another conservative cartoonist, drew a cartoon blaming Proud Boys, the KKK, and…wait for it…Antifa. Never mind that Antifa isn’t really an organization or the fact they were not present yesterday during the storming of the capitol. But, Antifa was present during the 1940s when they stomped out fascism in Europe and Asia.

Ben Garrison, a propagandist and member of the Trump cult complained today that “Twitter ‘sucked’ off 500 of his followers.” That doesn’t have anything to do with this or Antifa but I just wanted to point out the new service Twitter is offering.

Antifa didn’t kill anyone last year. Yesterday, The MAGA mob sent directly by Donald Trump was responsible for four deaths. Yesterday, the Trump mob committed sedition because democracy didn’t give them what they want, a fascist dictator. Yesterday, the Trump mob tried to install a leader with a bloody coup. They brought pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails.

The people who attacked the capitol yesterday were not Antifa, protesters, or patriots. They were a mob, goons, traitors, and terrorists. They attacked our country. They attacked America. I get that MAGAts are tribal and feel they have to support members of their tribe when they commit bad acts, even terrorism, but supporting and celebrating these terrorists is un-American.

Ashli Babbit was an Air Force veteran who had served four tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yesterday, she violated her military oath of defending our nation from all threats, foreign and domestic, by becoming a domestic threat. Ashli betrayed her oath, became a MAGAt terrorist, and attacked the United States of America, the nation she took an oath to defend and protect. She retweeted conspiracy theories from Trump and attorney Lin Wood. Her death leaves blood on their hands. She didn’t die defending democracy…she died assaulting it.

Here’s a useful tip to remember: Patriots don’t attack their country or defend and support terrorists who do.

By the way, this cartoon was drawn by Antifa.

MAGAt Mob


cjones01092021

Let the record state, I told you so.

In 2015, I told you a selfish, narcissistic, racist reality TV show host with the intellectual and reading level of a toddler would make a bad president. I told you this conman was too stupid to grasp the severity and seriousness of the job. I told you Donald Trump would put himself first and if it came down to it, would choose himself before this country. I told you Donald Trump would be the worst president in our nation’s history. I’m not alone. A lot of Americans are with me, and not just liberals. We told you so.

Over the past four years, we’ve seen him grift the nation. We’ve seen him take Putin’s side over that of America. And yesterday, we watched him incite a riot. What we saw yesterday was not a protest. It was a riot. It was a terrorist attack. Once again, Donald Trump proved he’s a threat to national security.

MAGAts are funny. The ones who weren’t there blame Antifa while defending the rioters. I’ve seen them make posts that the guy with the Braveheart face paint with horns on his head has been identified as a member of Antifa. In reality, he’s Jake Angeli from Arizona who is a Trump supporter and a member of Qanon. While blaming the riot on Antifa, which doesn’t exist, they’re also defending the rioters. I’ve seen the same people claiming it was Antifa state the rioters were defending democracy, weren’t violent, and are heroes.

These “nonviolent protesters” left four people dead in their wake. They interrupted Congress during a Constitutionally mandated action, the counting of the electoral college. They believe people shouldn’t protest for civil rights but when they don’t get what they want, they can burn the Congress down. That’s MAGA.

These people, this mob, these terrorists, walked from a Trump rally to Capitol Hill where they proceeded to riot, break in, smash windows, vandalize, and tear the place apart. Donald Trump told them “we” are going to march to the capitol building right before he jumped into a limo and went back to the White House, which has so much security now, you can barely see the White House.

So using these MAGAts’ logic, Donald Trump was addressing an Antifa rally. He wasn’t. He was talking to his MAGA base who are now comprised of terrorists and enemies of the United States of America. These MAGAts are equivalent of al Qaida and ISIS. They lost an election so yesterday, they attempted a coup. They engaged in sedition. And Donald Trump told them to do it.

Donald Trump is such a threat to the United States, Twitter blocked his account for 12 hours to prevent him from inciting further violence. Facebook followed suit. They need to make it permanent.

Now, the Trump cabinet needs to be as responsible as Twitter. A man who can’t be trusted with a social media account can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes. We can’t afford to let him have 14 more days.

Donald Trump started his presidency by declaring, “This American carnage stops right here and right now.” He said this delivering his inauguration speech on the steps of the capitol building…the same building where his presidency is ending with American carnage. How fitting. Donald Trump always projects so it’s natural that the guy who said “only he can fix” burns the place down. Who could have predicted this would happen? Along with a lot of other liberals, I did.

I told you so.

Watch me draw:

Senate Minority Leader


cjones01082021

Who could have predicted that spending two months telling your stupid base of racist idiots elections are fraudulent would actually discourage them from voting? Political experts and campaign gurus, make a note of that.

Donald Trump has been screaming that the presidential elections in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, and Georgia were fraudulent. Over the past few weeks, most of his focus has been on Georgia, where he lost an audit and a recount. He even called the secretary of state to have him disenfranchise thousands of voters and just hand him the state. Trump held two rallies in Georgia where he continued to claim the election was rigged…while half-heartedly telling his people to get out and vote.

Which title do you like most? Senator Raphael Warnock, Senator John Ossoff, or…Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell? All three titles are partly thanks to Donald Trump.

While Stacey Abrams should receive most of the credit for getting the blue vote out, and should probably be appointed as the next chairperson of the Democratic National Committee, it was Donald Trump who discouraged the red.

Early in the evening, with there being only a few thousands votes counted, Ossoff was beating incumbent David Perdue and Warnock was beating appointed incumbent Kelly Loeffler. I knew it was too early. Sure enough, the Republicans jumped ahead and their lead kept climbing.

About the time I saw Democrats on social media mourning an impending defeat, I heard from inside sources that Republicans knew they were going to lose both seats. These campaign and party officials weren’t saying they were in trouble…they were saying they were done and had lost. They saw the data. They saw how many votes were out and from where they were coming. They were coming from the cities and suburbs. The bad guys were losing. Georgia was going to save our democracy and our republic.

Vox was the first to call the race for Warnock over Loeffler, which was premature. They were at least two hours ahead of more traditional news sources like the Associated Press, CNN, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. But those outlets called it around 1:00 A.M. The Reverend Raphael Warnock had knocked off multi-millionaire Kelly Loeffler. Her negative and racist ads didn’t work (her campaign actually released an ad where they darkened Warnock’s skin. Warning! He’s black!). Warnock’s ads were positive. It doesn’t hurt to feature a beagle. People love puppies more than they love long-necked racists.

At this moment, Ossoff is ahead of Perdue by about 16,000 votes. His lead will grow but not as much as his nose did in Perdue’s ads. David Perdue released an ad where his campaign made Ossoff’s nose larger than it actually is. John Ossoff is Jewish.

Who could have predicted the racists and anti-Semites would lose in Georgia? Georgia!!!

I love to make political predictions but I didn’t make one public about Georgia. But if you had asked me, I would have told you, sadly, that the Republicans would keep both seats. I didn’t believe the Democrats would win. I knew it would be close and they’d give the Republicans a fight, but I could not believe red Georgia would send two Democrats, one black and one Jewish, to the United States Senate, even after Joe Biden won the state. I’m really glad I was wrong.

Now, The Democratic Party controls the Senate, like they control the House and the White House. Mitch McConnell will be the Minority Leader…unless he resigns. He may not want to live life as Minority Leader. He may go back to Kentucky and spend his retirement counting his millions. I’m just kidding. He might retire, but he’s not going back to Kentucky.

I stayed up until 3:00 A.M. watching returns and election coverage. I was watching CNN mostly but would occasionally flip over to MSNBC to see what Rachel Maddow, Brian Williams, and Steve Kornacki were saying. I was hoping to have a cartoon idea before going to sleep…and I wanted to see Ossoff ahead before I turned my lights out. My internal alarm clock went off at 6:00 A.M. I was up.

I wanted to draw something brilliant, poignant, sophisticated. Then I thought, “Nah, I’ll just draw a tortoise.”
