Debt Scheming


House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (gag) is demanding that President Biden negotiate with him and Republicans on raising the debt ceiling. Republicans make a lot of noise about cutting debt and runaway spending and use the debt ceiling as a tool to hold the nation hostage. Did you know that 28 percent of our nation’s current debt was created during Donald Trump’s four years in the White House (sic)?

Again, raising the debt ceiling does not authorize new spending. It authorizes the United States government to meet its debt obligations on spending that already happened. Republicans are hoping voters are as ignorant about the debt ceiling as they are. Refusing to raise the ceiling threatens the entire world’s economy.

Wait. Didn’t Republicans promise to fix the economy if they won the House? After doing nothing except make empty resolutions, kicking Democrats off committees, and putting terrorist lovers and racists on them, Republicans are finally ready to do something about the economy…and that is fuck it up.

Seriously, you don’t fix the economy by holding it hostage.

President Biden is refusing to negotiate with McCarthy, and he’s right. The legislation that authorized the spending that the ceiling needs to be raised for has already been negotiated. It’s literally already been legislated. Plus, you can’t trust goons, so why negotiate with them? It’s like negotiating with terrorists and in some cases with Republicans, you’re literally negotiating with terrorists.

And how can you take a guy seriously who removes Ilhan Omar from a committee for antisemitism, but gives Ms. Jewish Space Lasers two committee seats?

Now ask a Republican what they want to cut? They made a little noise about cutting Social Security and Medicare but quickly learned that’s political suicide. A few Republicans have mentioned defense spending which we spend over 800 billion on each year, and add more to every year…but there’s no way in Hell Republicans are going to touch that.

This Congress will have to pass a budget in the near future. If they want to cut spending, that’s where they do it, not in a debt ceiling fight, but in an actual budget fight. If you think Republicans are hapless now, wait until they get to the budget. Nutless monkeys would do a better job of crafting a budget than Republicans can.

Every member of Congress needs to vote yes on raising the debt ceiling…and those too stupid to know what it actually does should look back at the most recent debt ceiling fights. That history lesson should educate them real quick on one thing: Republicans always lose debt ceiling fights.

Republicans always lose fights over raising the debt ceiling because it’s a stupid fight. But once again, the GOP has a Speaker of the House who’s stupid.

When asked what his message to McCarthy would be about the debt ceiling issue, President Biden said. “show me your budget and I’ll show you mine.” McCarthy didn’t have a real answer because he doesn’t have a budget. He doesn’t even have a list of programs to cut.

Here’s a negotiating tip, kids: When you make demands, make sure you have an actual list of demands. You just can’t Steve Carell it from “Anchorman” and shout, “Loud noises.”

McCarthy is demanding cuts in the budget and said it’s up to President Biden to tell him there’s not any wasteful spending in Washington. He’s demanding cuts but wants Biden to propose where they can happen. How about no more tax cuts for billionaire assholes? Perhaps McCarthy’ssolution to paying off debt should be a GoFundMe run by George Santos.

George Santos ran a GoFundMe to save the life of a veteran’s dog, but he kept all the money raised for himself, possibly to purchase more blue sweaters. Basically, Santos’ GoFundMe scheme is a lot like all Republican budget schemes. Their schemes are always built on lies and in the end, the people who need the help the most, the ones Republicans promised to help, end up getting fucked while a Republican gets richer.

Have I mentioned previously that Kevin McCarthy is the worst Speaker in the history of Congress? The GOP is proving again that they can’t govern.

When will voters start paying attention to that?

Goon Committee


Kevin McCarthy is abusing his power as Speaker of the House. Of course, the only way he could secure enough votes from the extremists in his party was to make deals to abuse his power.

The Speaker of the House has the power to remove members from select committees and he’s done that with Democratic Party House members Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell who he has now formally removed from the Intelligence Committee. He doesn’t have the authority to remove members from regular committees which is what he’s attempting to do with Ilhan Omar.

The only reason he has to do this is vengeance, political retribution, and to keep promises to the goon caucus in his party. This is revenge for the removal of Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar from committees when the Democrats had the majority.

Greene and Gosar both expressed support for violence against their House colleagues. Their removal was bipartisan with several Republicans voting with the Democrats. Greene and Gosar have also spoken at white supremacist parties.

It will take a full vote of the House to remove Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee, which McCarthy is planning. His reason is that she’s expressed antisemitic sentiments in the past, for which she’s apologized. Never mind all the Islamophobic comments from Marjorie Taylor Greene and her support for terrorism who he has put on the Oversight and Accountability Committee and the Homeland Security Committee. He’s also put fellow Qanon conspiracy theorist and Islamophobic Lauren Boebert and white nationalist Paul Gosar on the Oversight and Accountability Committee. McCarthy doesn’t really have an issue with antisemitism since he groveled for the support of one, Donald Trump, who dines with white nationalists and antisemites at Mar-a-Lago (right where he keeps his stolen classified documents).

Republicans have argued that Schiff used his position on the Intelligence Committee to lie about the connections between the campaign of Donald Trump and the Russian government despite an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller that found no such coordination. But did he lie? The Trump Campaign did share polling information with the Russians. The Russians didn’t start attacking the servers of the Democratic Party until the day Trump publicly asked them to. Donald Trump read information gained from Russian hackers at his hate rallies. There’s also the fact that the Trump Campaign invited Russians into their headquarters at Trump Tower on 5th Avenue to dish dirt on Hillary Clinton. Matt Gaetz has even issued a resolution that would ban Schiff from having access to any classified information.

That’s fucking rich. That goon who defends Trump’s stealing of classified information which he kept at his country club, and who asked Trump for a pardon for his involvement in an insurrection, wants to ban someone’s access to classified information.

McCarthy booted Swalwell because of connections with a Chinese spy although an FBI investigation found no wrongdoing on his part.

Let me get this straight. They’re kicking Schiff off the House Intelligence Committee for making claims that Trump colluded with Russia, arguing that the Mueller investigation couldn’t find any evidence of collusion. But, they’re also kicking Swalwell off the same committee claiming he colluded with a Chinese Spy despite another DOJ investigation being unable to find any evidence of…wait for it…collusion. McCarthy and the Republicans’ arguments to remove Schiff is destroyed by their own arguments to remove Swalwell.

And if you want to remove Schiff for saying something that’s not true, then shouldn’t every Republican who voted against certifying the election be kicked off their committees? Why are goons like Greene, Boebert, Gosar, Gaetz, and Jim (Gym) Jordan on committees after lying about the election and their involvement in the insurrection? They all helped the Trump campaign lie about the election, helped him try to steal the election, and supported an insurrection. But I guess saying Trump colluded with Russia (which he did) is worse.

And speaking of liars, how do you have a problem with Schiff, Swalwell, and Omar being on committees while you’re putting pathological liar George Santos on two committees?

Kevin McCarthy argues that Santos’ constituents voted for him, although they didn’t know who they were voting for. But didn’t Schiff’s, Swalwell’s, and Omar’s constituents vote for them too?

Kevin McCarthy is the worst Speaker of the House in the history of houses. This guy shouldn’t be speaker of a doghouse. He sucks. He’s weak, he’s a coward, and he’s doing the bidding of the goons, not his constituents, and not for what’s best for the nation. These moves, kicking Democrats off committees while appointing racist terrorist-supporting goons, prove that nothing coming out of Kevin McCarthy’s mouth can be taken seriously. He’s a joke who has lost all credibility. The reasonings he’s using to remove these Democrats from committee assignments are not on par with the reasons for removing Greene and Gosar.

In two years, we get to kick Kevin McCarthy out of the Speaker’s office.

Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young, and Santos


I gotta be honest with you. I don’t have much to say about David Crosby. I can’t fake it for you. I respect his influence and musicianship but he wasn’t a big influence on me unless it was through other musicians. I mean, I loved Tom Petty who was into The Byrds, so maybe that’s it.

I was never really into folk rock so I never got into The Byrds although I’m a huge Beatles fan, and the Byrds and the Beatles were two groups influencing each other. I never got into Crosby, Still, Nash, and Young though I do like a few Neil Young tunes. Young was well-regarded in the early 90s Seattle grunge scene and Pearl Jam even toured with him.

But I don’t think David Crosby ever reached me. I don’t hate his music but I don’t listen to it either. I don’t like “Our House” or “Teach Your Children Well.” I kinda wanna gag when I hear those songs. Maybe I do hate his music.

So instead of drawing a memorial cartoon on David Crosby (or tracing a caricature of him like so many did yesterday), I drew something funny that made me laugh.

If George Santos was to sing “Our House,” it’d be something like, “Our House, is a very very very fine Republican House majority that’s full of goons and liars, la la la la.”

Each day brings a new revelation, lie, or something else horrifying about George Santos. Did you hear about him creating a GoFundMe to save the life of a homeless veteran’s sick dog? It raised over $3,000 but instead of giving the money to save the dog, Santos kept it for himself. Yeah, nice guy.

There’s another revelation that while in Brazil, George Santos was a drag queen. He’s come out vehemently against this one saying it’s not true but really….it’s probably the least objectionable thing about the guy. I mean, despite being openly gay, he must fear that being a drag queen will lose the support of the Republicans who are still defending him. But quite frankly, who cares? It’s more interesting that he denies ever being a drag queen than him being a drag queen. Just work it, George.

I was talking to a colleague last night when this idea came to me at a late hour. I sent it to him and he said it was hilarious, but he was also on his second glass of wine which he told me to factor in. Another friend of mine said it probably doesn’t work but since it made me laugh, I decided to ignore her (but I still love her). And this morning, proofreader Laura said it’s “perfect.”

But I had already decided to go with it because it made me laugh. If you can make yourself laugh, then you should probably draw it.

Music note: While drawing a cartoon about David Crosby, I listened to the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs.

Smoking In The Goons Room


It seems like the point of most Republican initiatives is to be an asshole. But then again, racists are assholes. Republicans believe stuff like dropping immigrants off without advance notice in sanctuary states is hilarious, and “owning the libs.” But using human refugees as pawns for a political stunt is a dick move. And if you really wanna be an asshole, a surefire way to do that is to blow smoke in someone’s face. Republicans always do that figuratively but now in the House of Representatives, they’ll be doing it literally.

I hate smoking. Yes, I’m a former smoker and I know that if I smoked even one today that it would make me hack and become physically nauseous…and I’d probably finish the cigarette then go to 7/11 and buy a carton of Camel Blues. Although I hate smoking and the smell of it, tasting it would probably feel like discovering the sweet nectar that’s been missing from that one empty spot deep within my soul. Oh, mama. This is why I have not even taken a drag since I quit in November 2019.

But I do think they stink. And since I’m a former smoker, they stink more to me than they do to people who never smoked. Former smokers are the worst. What really grinds my gears is that each time I smell cigarettes on someone, I know that’s how others used to smell me. Ya see, smokers don’t smell the smoke on their bodies and clothing. Oddly enough, even though I hate the smell, I can hang out with friends in a smoking bar (we still have a few here that found loopholes in the smoking-ban law) and it really doesn’t bother me until I get home and smell it on my clothes. I don’t have urges to pick it up again.

I can smell a burning cigarette from 50 feet or so. When I caught Covid-19 in 2020, what made me realize I needed to be tested was when I walked within 50 feet of some smokers and couldn’t smell it.

And now if you walk into the halls of the House side of Congress, you may come out smelling like an old man bar. Those are the worst. Old man bars are worst because old fucks tend to smoke generic cigarettes and trust me, there’s a difference in the funk from a name-brand cigarette. Smokers will back me up on this.

When Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House in 2007, she banned smoking in the Capitol though it was still allowed in representatives’ offices (most of those are in office buildings, not the Capitol building itself). John Boehner was such a heavy smoker, that when Paul Ryan replaced him, the walls of the Speaker’s had to be repainted and the carpet and curtains replaced because of the stink. Nobody wants to smell like John Boehner.

Smoking is banned indoors in Washington, D.C. In fact, when I quit smoking, I planned for it to coincide with a week I was to attend a conference in the district. It can be difficult to smoke in Washington. But the ban doesn’t extend to the Capitol, which makes its own laws.

In the 1990s, President Bill Clinton banned smoking in all federal buildings that fell under the jurisdiction of the Executive Branch, which doesn’t affect the Legislative or Judicial branches. And now half of Congress will be smoke-filled again.

For comparison, the Senate side of the Capitol building banned smoking way back in 1914. House Speaker James Blaine of Maine banned smoking on the House floor and galleries, only while in session, 150 years ago. James Blaine of Maine had to be a pain and told smokers to refrain from exhuming the toxins that remain which they probably also did on trains. Sorry.

Kevin McCarthy’s House of Representatives has now banned the smoking ban. This is a move to “own the libs” because it’s something Pelosi instituted and a lot of Republicans look at smoking bans as an attack on their freedom to give nonsmokers second-hand lung cancer. Also, it’s another way to be an asshole. Fun, fun, fun, whee.

Ursula Perano, a reporter who covers Congress for The Daily Beast tweeted, “There has indeed been some cigar hotboxing happening in a certain Rules Committee chairman’s office, which is nearby the House press gallery. And the smell is…… strong.” She was backed up by Reuters’ Patricia Zengerle.

Ugh, cigars. If you really wanna go the extra mile and prove you’re an inconsiderate asshole, smoke a cigar in public. Even when I was a smoker, I would leave an establishment because of cigar stench. Ew. Just the thought of it now and….hold on. BLEAAAAAAAGH!!!!

Pipes can be different. The smell from a pipe is typically kinda sweet and even some nonsmokers can find it somewhat pleasant. My first editor was a pipe smoker and his office was next to mine, yet the smell never bothered me. I kinda liked it. It didn’t make me want to smoke a pipe (could you see me with a pipe?), but it was OK.

But the one true reason for the House repealing the smoking ban is to show just how regressive they plan to be. This is an indicator. Also, it defies science which Republicans hate. But even with the smoking ban, there was still smoke coming from Republicans. Liar liar, pants on fire… everything they do is based on a lie. I told someone yesterday that I haven’t heard an argument from a Republican since 2015 that didn’t contain a lie.

What’s stinkier in Congress? A Republican cigar or George Santo’s lying pants?

Creative note: Yesterday’s blog was partly about political cartoonists who trace. Before drawing this, I looked at some other cartoons of the Capitol and could tell that a lot of those were traced. There’s one political cartoonist who’s a tracer, but he never “draws” the same subject twice. He’ll trace it once and then recycle it in later cartoons. Obviously, my version here was not traced and I don’t think it actually looks that much like the Capitol, but I liked it so I kept it.

Liars, Speakers, and Swearers


Yes, I stayed up all night to watch Kevin McCarthy finally become the Speaker of the House after 15 ballots. One thing that’s for certain is that McCarthy enters the office as the weakest Speaker in House history.

There are actually a lot of certainties with this, one being that the Goon Caucus or Chaos Caucus which consisted of nihilists like Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, Bob Good, Scott Perry, Chip Roy, and Eli Crane are not people of principles or who keep their word. They’re all liars who were inconsistent throughout the entire ordeal. Each of them promised they’d never vote for Kevin McCarthy and described themselves as “Never Kevins,” but each of them eventually supported Kevin McCarthy. And yeah, a vote for Present was a vote for McCarthy. But then again, we also saw a bunch of so-called Never Trumpers become Trumpers.

Some members of the Goon Squad kept changing who they’d vote for. Gaetz voted for Jim Jordan, Donald Trump, and Present throughout the process. Someone eventually tried to literally kick his ass which would have been the most positive outcome in all of this. We’ll never know for sure if Matt Gaetz has a punchable face if people keep holding back the people trying to punch him. Sheesh.

Since there wasn’t actually a plan to replace McCarthy with another candidate, the obvious object was to hold the process hostage to make deals. Now, the party that demands transparency needs to be transparent and tell us every side deal Kevin McCarthy made for votes. He said he didn’t promise the chairmanship of a subcommittee to Matt Gaetz, who seemed to change his vote immediately after the attempted assault, but we all know that since Kevin McCarthy is a flake and a Republican, he is a liar. Why did he give Gaetz a pat on the back shortly before the final ballot?

So maybe Republicans should have just elected lying George Santos as Speaker because Kevin McCarthy started his speech after winning the speakership by lying.

He talked about ending the woke culture in schools, stopping the politicization of the FBI, and revoking a passed bill authorizing the hiring of more IRS agents. McCarthy started his tenure as Speaker lying and gaslighting America and also assuring us that he’s only going to fight for the rich and powerful. What do you think that IRS thing is about?

Already he’s writing checks his ass can’t cash, and it’s not a stolen Brazilian check from George Santos. This House with a Republican majority that needed 15 ballots to finally elect a Speaker, weakening him in the process, will not accomplish anything significant over the next two years. Every bill they try to pass will be held hostage by the Goon Squad who will demand trades and deals for their votes. And I don’t think McCarthy has anything left to trade. Because of the narrow majority, they will need those votes. Matt Gaetz has shown us how the next two years are going to go. And even if they manage to pass anything, it has to get through the Senate which has a Democratic majority. And even then, it has to get past President Joe Biden, who’s not going to sign any bullshit bills from this House. What are they going to pass, a law that bans wokeness in schools? All this House is going to do for the next two years is conduct bullshit investigations that will go nowhere, but may succeed in demonizing their political opponents.

I have two predictions. Kevin McCarthy won’t last two years and at the end of that, Republicans still won’t have produced anything solid from Hunter Biden’s laptop.

NFT Resumé


George Santos’ resumé packs more bullshit than a collection of Donald Trump NFT cards.

Santos recently won a Long Island congressional seat on a campaign of lies. The lies told aren’t just little white lies, like taking total credit for something he was just a small part of. No, these lies are on a level that would make Donald Trump and Hershel Walker envious. What’s also surprising is that he got away with it long enough to win the election. His district, which covers parts of Queens, is one that President Biden won. It’s not a Trumper district.

When called out on the lies, Santos blamed the media and replied with a Winston Churchill quote, which wasn’t actually from Churchill. He’s also promised to give us an answer to all these lies…somewhere down the road.

The fake Churchill quote is: “You have enemies? Good. it means that you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” This is like when racists justify their racism by quoting Martin Luther King Jr.

Churchill’s enemies were Nazis. Santos’ enemies are people who fact-check.

Santo’s lies are about his life and work history. Let’s take a look at them

Santos claims he graduated in 2010 from Baruch College, a public university in New York City, with a bachelor’s degree in economics and finance. It’s a lie. The school was unable to find any records, even using multiple variations of his first, middle, and last name, of having graduated from their institution of higher learning. It sounds like he graduated from Trump University with a BS.

Santos claims his grandparents survived the Holocaust as Ukrainian Jewish refugees from Belgium, but it’s another lie. He’s not even Jewish. His grandparents are from Brazil and there were no Nazis in South America until World War II was over. In case you’re a Republican, South America and Europe are two totally different continents.

Remember the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting in 2016? Santos claims he lost four employees in that tragedy. Yet, it’s another lie. The New York Times couldn’t find that any of the 49 victims have ever worked at the various firms Santos name drops in his biography and while campaigning.

Santos claims he founded a charity called Friends of Pets which he ran from 2013 to 2018 that was an animal rescue operation that rescued 2,400 dogs and 280 cats. The IRS says they have no record of this charity in their database. How do you pull 280 cats out of your ass?

Santos claims he worked as an associate asset manager within Citigroup’s real estate division. But a spokesperson for that company couldn’t find any record of his employment, that his job title was made-up, and that they had sold off the real estate division in 2005…when Santos was only 17.

Santos also claimed he once worked for Goldman Sachs, which also couldn’t find any record of his employment. And you know they’re not lying because you’d remember a guy who smelled like 280 cats.

Santos lied about being a landlord. He claimed he was hurt by Covid-19-related eviction protections given to renters and that he went nearly an entire year without receiving rent on 13 properties, which must have been up his ass with those 280 cats. The only property Santos listed on a required financial disclosure form was an apartment in Brazil (maybe where his Ukrainian Belgium Jewish grandparents were living). And instead of being a landlord losing money because of deadbeat tenants, he’s a deadbeat tenant and The New York Times found he actually faced multiple evictions as a renter even being fined about $12,000 in a civil judgment.

Here is where it gets tricky and maybe legally complicated: Santos says Devolder is his “family’s firm” that managed $80 million in assets and described it as a capital introduction consulting company. The New York Times could not find any of the company’s public-facing assets or properties and Santos’ congressional financial disclosures didn’t include any either, though Santos claims he was paid $750,000 yearly as the company’s sole owner. Santos also claims he earned dividends from Devolder that were somewhere between $1 million and $5 million, which is the same range the company is estimated to be valued at. This company has since dissolved.

It also appears that Santos failed to provide any information about the company’s clients that would have contributed to his payout, which is a violation of federal law to disclose any compensation in excess of $5,000 from a single source.

One place that can actually be confirmed as an employer for Santos is Harby City Capital, a Florida-based investment company that attracted investors through YouTube videos and guarantees of double-digit returns where he worked as a regional director. As it turns out, this company was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission for running a Ponzi scheme. Santos claims he doesn’t know anything about the Ponzi scheme while he was there because he was too busy operating the Nigerian Prince division.

Santos is a gay Republican, but I’m starting to wonder if he’s lying about the gay part. As for being a Republican, he sure does lie like one. What will the new GOP House majority do about this serious lack of ethics from Santos? Nothing. Even if Santos broke laws with his filings, I wouldn’t expect Republicans to do anything about it, even if they didn’t have a slim majority. As we’ve seen over the past six years, Republicans are really good at closing their eyes when other Republicans break laws. Right, Kevin McCarthy?

It’s nice that the Republican Party is reaching out and running gay and Latino candidates, but it never seems to matter if a Republican is white, straight, black, brown, gay, or whatever…they’re all POS liars.
