Military

Giftwrapped for Taliban


Cjones08272021

A lot of people, mostly conservatives, are up in arms over the military equipment left behind in Afghanistan that’s now been seized by the Taliban. Republicans are using this as a political poking stick against President Biden, but it’s something everyone should be concerned about and not just used to score political points.

You can place a lot of blame for the withdrawal on President Biden, but you can’t blame him for the U.S.-made military goodies left behind and grabbed by the bad guys. President Biden didn’t put them there.

We spent the past two decades training the Afghanistan military and giving them hundreds of millions in free military equipment. President Biden has been president for less than a year. It’s not his fault the Afghanistan military folded like a wet bag in a dishwasher. The United States military didn’t abandon Humvees, tanks, and Black Hawk helicopters on the side of the road in Afghanistan. All the military equipment the Taliban has snagged is from the Afghanistan military…which cut bait and bailed just as soon as the Taliban made a scary face and said, “Grrrrr.”

We don’t know how much military equipment the Taliban got ahold of. We can’t run an audit because they didn’t take it from us and it’s not like the Taliban will tell us other than posting a few photos on social media of them posing with it while saying, “nyah-nyah.” We can’t even get a clear answer from the Pentagon on how much we gave Afghanistan over the past two decades. But an unnamed official told Reuters that current intelligence assessment was that the Taliban took control of more than 2,000 armored vehicles, including American Humvees, and as many as 40 aircraft that may include UH-60 Black Hawks, scout attack helicopters and ScanEagle military drones.

How in the hell do we lose drones? Maybe we should have had Amazon drones ship the drones.

Republicans sent a letter to the Secretary of Defense stating, “Securing U.S. assets should have been among the top priorities for the U.S. Department of Defense prior to announcing the withdrawal from Afghanistan.” Ugh, Republicans. It wasn’t ours to “secure.” You can’t train an army and give them to the tools to defend their nation and then just take the tools back out of fear they’ll shoot their eyes out. The Afghan army was supposed to be able to use it. Republicans should write them a letter. They’ll probably write back “grrrr, Mondays.”

It should be noted that just because the Taliban may have 40 American-made aircraft, that doesn’t mean they know how to use them. It doesn’t mean they can maintain the aircraft or even get parts for the equipment. This is equipment made by the military industry of the United States which means: it’s all made to break quickly and be replaced.

I seriously doubt the Taliban has a lot of pilots and flight crews. But what they can do is sell it. There are a lot of nations that would love to own military stuff from the United States. Not just so they can use it but so they can replicate it. This could be more dangerous than the Taliban having it.

Here’s an idea: Let’s cut military spending. The budget for the military increases every year. Even during the Obama years, in which Republicans and Trump claim he depleted the military. Every year during the Obama years, we spent over $600 billion (with a “b”) on the military. You don’t “deplete” a military by spending $600 billion on it. Last year, we spent over $725 billion. At least 39 percent of the world’s military spending is by the United States. Hell, we have 20 aircraft carriers that wasn’t much use in a two-decade war in a landlocked nation. But then again, we have a naval facility in West Virginia. Putting a naval base in a landlocked state is like putting a university in Arkansas.

There are places outside our nation we need to be, but we don’t need to be everywhere. And we don’t need to spend $2 trillion on a nation just to watch it fall to a terrorist organization.

We have a military culture in our nation that goes beyond politics. It’s not Democratic or Republican and it never changes other than getting more expensive by the year. Let’s stop doing that.

They say we lost the war in Afghanistan, but the defense industry won. Right now, the defense industry is probably lobbying Congress for our next war.

Florida Taliban


Cjones08152021

Right-wing extremists are encroaching upon innocent victims and insisting they be controlled by their fundamentalists dogma. These extremists are religious nut jobs who abandoned facts and science a long time ago in favor of cultist beliefs. Their outdated culture is used to oppress women and threatens the lives of millions. For these extreme conservatives, their anti-science cult leaders are the heroes and the villains are scientists, doctors, nurses, and educators. The government is being taken over by these racist fundamentalists who have no tolerance for diversity. Many have given up on the area and the innocent and enlightened are encouraged to take their families and flee for their lives before it’s too late.

Yes, my friends…Florida is a lost cause. I also hear Afghanistan is pretty bad.

The Taliban is on the verge of retaking Afghanistan after losing near-complete control two decades ago. A lot of people are blaming President Joe Biden for this as he evacuated all military personnel. But I think this validates the president pulling our troops out. If the government of Afghanistan can’t maintain control of its country after being propped up by the U.S. military for over two decades, then they never will. the only way for us to keep the Taliban from retaking Afghanistan would be for us to be there forever. If anything, we have wasted two decades and according to the Pentagon’s latest numbers, over $815 billion on the war in that nation. Other institutions have that number over $900 billion.

I feel bad for everyone in Afghanistan who’s not a fundamentalist whack job that bans women from schools and blows up statues, but instead of spending $900 billion on a lost cause in Afghanistan, we could have spent that money at home. We could have given everyone a free college education, healthcare, fixed our infrastructure, brought broadband to Arkansas, or at the very least, had taken everyone to Arby’s at least 12 times. Disclaimer: Cartoonists are notoriously bad at math and I’m just guessing at these figures. But I don’t need to be a mathamawhatchmacallit to know we could have funded a lot of cool shit and still gone to Arby’s with $900 billion.

Not only should we give up on Afghanistan, we should also give up on Florida.

Even without the right-wing fundamentalists taking everything over, Florida’s always been a little messed up. Remember the entire hanging chad thing in 2000 when Florida’s election for president was stolen from Al Gore and given to George W. Bush? And then Bush started two wars with one of them being in…wait for it…Afghanistan. So in a way, our two decades war in Afghanistan is kind of Florida’s fault. Thanks, Florida.

We we had high hopes for Florida. President Obama won it twice. We thought Hillary Clinton would win it in 2016 but surprise, Trump took it. I was like, “Whaaaaaa’at?” Then, we thought Andrew Gillum would win the governorship but instead, Florida gave it to guy who ran commercials showing him teaching his daughter how to build a racist border wall out of Legos. Florida let Rick Scott, Voldemort’s doppelganger, go from being its idiotic and hateful governor to being one of its idiotic and hateful senators. The other Senator is Marco Rubio. One of its congressmen is Matt Gaetz, a right-wing Trump cultist idiot who is under investigation for being a pedophile. Then, Florida voted again for Donald Trump.

The most shocking thing about Florida is that Rand Paul and Ted Cruz aren’t from there.

Now, with the Delta Variant proving it’s a really bad idea not to be vaccinated, Ron DeSantis, the racist Lego guy, is trying to prevent schools from mandating face masks.

Also, Florida is full of flying buzzy stingy things, other creatures that crawl and slither and should be in places like Burma instead of the United States, it’s nearly impossible to go through the day without walking into at least one spider web, backyard swimming pools have a 70/30 human to alligator ratio, it’s really sticky, and if you go to the beach, the sand just gets everywhere.

Florida is so toxic that if Dwayne the Rock Johnson was to film one of his crappy movies where he’s wearing a ridiculous hat while he and his muscles are braving the Florida swamps…they’d probably film it in Atlanta. Seriously, everything is being made in Atlanta now, and that stupid hat on The Rock alone is stopping me from seeing Disney’s “Jungle Cruise.” Besides, I already saw “The Mummy.”

Then there’s Florida Man. Who’s Florida Man? Florida Man is a Floridian who does shit like…

Throwing an alligator through a Wendy’s drive-thru window. This is really messed up because you should never drive without putting a seatbelt on your gator.

When Hurricane Irma was hitting Florida, thousands of Florida Mans went outside…to shoot at the hurricane. Why didn’t they just throw alligators at it?

Florida Man decided that when he left a hospital, he should do so by stealing an ambulance.

Florida Man broke into a jail to hang out with his friends. He was lonely. I kinda expect this to happen a lot after Donald Trump is arrested.

Florida Man robbed a Game Stop while wearing a bag on his head…a transparent bag.

Florida Man paints anti-Hillary messages on Tampa Bay crabs. It was probably Matt Gaetz.

Florida Man stole a car while a monkey was clinging to his chest. No word if there was an alligator in the car.

Florida Man steals peacocks.

Florida Man kills a goat and drinks its blood for a Pagan sacrifice…and then runs for the Senate. Shockingly, it was NOT Rick Scott. Also, Paganism is still behind Trumpism for Florida’s favorite cult.

Florida Man tries to burn down his former lover’s house with pasta sauce…while disguised as a bull. That’s actually smart because the costume will throw investigators off. Bulls are well-known for their dislike of pasta.

Florida Man stole a BMW after failing to purchase it with food stamps.

Florida Man practices karate on swans. The swans won.

Florida Man was kicked out of a Trump rally for wearing a fake penis on his head. Only real penises are allowed on heads at Florida Trump rallies. They did let him back in when they realized it was Eric Trump.

Florida Man gets arrested for riding manatees. “Riding” is a euphemism here and it was Matt Gaetz.

Florida Man steals bees.

At another Wendy’s (or maybe the same Wendy’s), Florida Man climbs to the roof in his underwear to yell at traffic.

Another Florida Man smuggled another alligator, a dead one this time, in his car. Do all Florida cars have a 70/30 human to alligator ratio?

Florida Man keeps a dozen stolen zoo animals in his apartment. No word on how many were alligators.

Florida Man tries to walk out of Walmart with over $170 worth of steak and lobster in his pants. At least they weren’t alligators.

Florida Man beats a drag queen with a tiki torch while dressed as Klansman…then runs for mayor. How do they know he wasn’t a Klansman? Also, I’m predicting he ran as a Republican.

Florida Man breaks into a delivery room where his ex is giving birth and starts a fight with her boyfriend.

Florida Man calls 911 to talk about Hitler. Was the call coming from Mar-a-Lago?

And finally, Florida Man screams from a shitty golf course that he won an election he lost and will eventually be reinstated. Next, he’ll climb on top of a Wendy’s with an alligator to scream at traffic about the stolen election. I’m calling it.

I have two clients in Florida (I had more before the pandemic). One of the editors told me I should move to Florida because I would have a Florida topic every day. I could probably support myself just by syndicating to Florida news outlets. But then I look at Florida…and yeah, no. I would really enjoy cartooning Florida but I don’t think I could deal with living there. I know I don’t want to. Honestly, I could probably maybe handle the lunacy, but I can’t handle that kind of heat anymore. And it’s sticky. I hate sticky almost as much as bulls hate pasta.

Ron DeSantis and his fellow right-wing extremists, his Florida Taliban, are intent on destroying Florida. Maybe it’s time we gave up on Florida. The only question is: Where do we resettle all the refugees?

Lost in Afghan Translation


Cjones07142021

The United States is finally pulling out of Afghanistan. I don’t care who’s saying it’s too soon to leave Afghanistan and we’re allowing the Taliban to take it back because 20 years is more than enough time to spend on that nation. How much more is the United States supposed to sacrifice for that nation?

We were in Iraq and Vietnam too long, and never should have stepped one American soldier foot in either of those nations. Enough with the nation building. Afghanistan has to set its own course now. But what about the people in Afghanistan who risked their lives to help us? It seems we would have prepared for their safety before we left Afghanistan…not just talk about it after. Even before they get here, they’ll get a full taste of American bureaucracy. If you think standing in line at the DMV is a sonofabitch, oh boy.

President Joe Biden said we have approved about 2,500 special immigrant visas for the translators, drivers, escorts, guides, security guards, and others, which will allow them to come to the United States. But there are 18,000 applications from these personnel and their families. The number of applicants may reach as high as 50,000. On top of all that, there’s a congressionally mandated cap that currently means there are under 11,000 visas even available…so about 7,000 fewer than the applicants already waiting. Did I say, “Welcome to American bureaucracy”?

The U.S. is planning to house some of these Afghans in Guam (a U.S. territory) and are in negotiations to temporarily set them up in nations like Qatar and the United Emirates Republic. They say there is an immediate focus to get about 9,000 of the 18,000 out of the nation quickly, but what happens to them if while they’re waiting, they’re in territory recaptured by the Taliban? It’s not like the Taliban is known for leniency and compassion. Why are we just now talking to these other nations about accepting refugees? Maybe we were planning on staying in Afghanistan forever.

After the fall of Vietnam, the United States accepted close to 120,000 refugees (one of them was a best man at my wedding). As you saw from the historic photos, refugees were climbing aboard helicopters with U.S. troops during the withdrawal…and escape before Saigon fell. President Gerald Ford said at the time, “To ignore the refugees in their hour of need would be to repudiate the values we cherish as a nation of immigrants.” But since we’re a nation that allowed Donald Trump to become its leader (sic), and so many of us are demanding he be “reinstated” over democracy, what exactly are our values?

We are a nation of immigrants which is something we need to keep in mind when it comes to immigration and people seeking asylum and refugee status. We also need to keep in mind our international reputation.

After Donald Trump pulled forces out of Syria, breaking a promise to the Kurds who trusted us enough to fight with us only to eventually be abandoned to the wrath of Turkey, our word isn’t as good as it used to be. We can argue that was more Donald Trump than it was the United States, but unfortunately at that time, Donald Trump was the United States. Unfortunately, Donald Trump was the president (sic) of the United States of America. Quite frankly, just the fact Donald Trump was president and over 74 million voted for him in 2020, has hurt our reputation. As many of us have learned from personal experience, you can not trust anyone who supports Donald Trump or enter into any agreement or relationship with them.

People who support Donald Trump don’t have values, morals, ethics, principles, or integrity. They will like and burn you. Cruelty is their shits and giggles. When the international community looks at the United States, that’s what they see. They see an old racist narcissistic billionaire laugh while throwing babies into cages.

We were in Afghanistan for 20 years. That war is almost old enough to legally drink. It seems to me that at some point during those two decades (in case you’re a Republican, ten years is a decade and ten plus ten equals 20), we would have started the asylum process for those who were risking their lives to help us.

Over the past four years during the Trump presidency (sic), we abandoned our Kurdish allies, we bailed on a nuclear treaty with Iran and a climate treaty with the word. We bailed on other nuclear treaties along with the Trans-Pacific Partnership, pulled out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, and the U.N. Educational, Scientific, and Educational Council. We threatened to pull out of NATO while clamoring for Russia to be readmitted into the G7. We pulled out of several other organizations and treaties. Our nation criticized allies while buddying up with bullies. Our president (sic) gave secrets provided by allies to Russians. Our president (sic) hung out with Kim Jong Un while attacking Canada over its cheese. Our president (sic) called a female leader of a democratic nation “nasty” for not selling us Greenland. Our president claimed “good people” march with Nazis.

It’s our fault the world does not trust us. We gave them every reason they have to not believe in us. The world thinks our word is crap…and the world is right.

Tucker’s Ass


cjones03152021

“Fuck Tucker Carlson.” No, those aren’t my words. That’s from a tweet from a United States Senator.

Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois tweeted, “Fuck Tucker Carlson” and added, “While he was practicing his two-step, America’s female warriors were hunting down Al Qaeda and proving the strength of America’s women.”

Senator Duckworth lost both legs fighting for our country. Tucker Carlson may have gotten a toe blister while shimmying on Dancing with the Stars.

Tucker’s natural instinct is to discredit those who attack him because he’s unable to go after the merit of an argument. In 2004, when Jon Stewart went on Crossfire where Tucker was a co-host at CNN, all Tucker could do was attack Stewart’s credibility instead of the merit of the argument, that basically Tucker and the entire show were “partisan hackery.” Stewart told Tucker and co-host Paul Begala about their show, “It’s hurting America. Here is what I wanted to tell you guys: Stop. You have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you fail miserably.”

Tucker told Stewart he was funnier on his own show to which Stewart replied, “You know what’s interesting, though? You’re as big a dick on your show as you are on any show.” And then, Crossfire and Tucker’s contract was canceled.

And today, Tucker has proven Jon Stewart correct. He was as big a dick on Crossfire as he is on any show. Today, he’s being as big a dick on Fox News where he hosts their number one show “Dicks with Tucker.” I kid. That’s not the title, but then again, Republicans love dick.

Carlson started one of his shows this week ranting about President Joe Biden “feminizing” the military. Tucker said, “So we’ve got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits. Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the US military.” No, Tucker. You’re a mockery of journalism.

The thing is here, these maternity flight suits were started up during the Trump administration. Tucker forgot to mention that. But, so what?

Can we get beyond the myth that Republicans care more about the military than Democrats? Can we get beyond the false belief that Republicans own patriotism? Can we get beyond the bullshit that Republicans are more American than anyone else? We need to accept the fact that Republicans will abandon any pretense they were ever American-troops-supporting patriots for a charlatan in a cheap suit who makes them feel good about their racism.

The military can be questioned and criticized. We’ve all done it. The biggest critics of the military are members of the military. But what Tucker did was an unwarranted sexist attack on members of our armed forces without any substance or merit.

After Tucker was berated by the military, he went on the attack and criticized the military for not being able to finish off the Taliban.

Tucker said, “We were almost rattled. Then we realized if the woke generals treat us like they’ve treated the Taliban, we’ll be fine. Twenty years later, the Taliban are still here.”

“Maybe we ought to promise the Pentagon that we’ll get rid of traditional gender roles on this show. Change the pronouns, defeat the patriarchy, and all that. Then they’d send us billions in unmarked $100 bills as a reward. They’ve certainly done that before. And that might really kickstart our struggling opium poppy business.”

That’s where you’re supposed to laugh because Tucker was trying to be funny.

Tucker also praised China’s military, saying, “While China’s military becomes more masculine as it’s assembled the world’s largest navy, our military needs to become, as Joe Biden says, more feminine.”

So Tulip Toes Tucker Carlson attacks American service members while praising China’s military.

Tucker is right on one count. China does have a larger navy than we do if you go by the number of boats. But while China’s collection of boats amounts to about two million tons, the United States Navy weighs in at 4.6 million tons. While China spends about 261 billion a year on their entire military, the United States spends over 731 billion a year.

And what does Tucker know about our military? When Donald Trump claimed he rebuilt our military along with our nuclear stockpile (Eric Trump claimed he built aircraft carriers), Tucker never called him out for those lies. When Donald Trump said we have invisible airplanes, Tucker never said, “What?” When Donald Trump displayed ignorance of what the nuclear triad is, Tucker never did a show explaining it to him.

We already know Tucker Carlson is a racist. We already know Tucker Carlson is a sexist. We already know Tucker Carlson is a dumbass. Now, thank you, Tucker for providing proof that you do not support the men and women who fight for and defend our nation. Now we know.

One’s support for our military and patriotism should not waver back and forth depending upon which party the Commander in Chief is a member of. Now, instead of supporting the United States armed forces, Tucker Carlson and his ilk support white supremacist terrorists who attack our government and Constitution. I don’t recall Tucker going after the Capitol insurgents over the women in their ranks. “Hey, your white Nazi treasonous terrorist organization is becoming too feminine! You’re supposed to be ‘Proud Boys,’ not “Nazi Babes Gone Wild!”

Tucker Carlson is as much of a fraud as a patriot as he is a journalist.

I know several women in the military and each of them could kick Tulip Toes Tucker’s lily-white ass. I’m pretty sure if the mission was granted, each of them would volunteer to kick Tucker’s ass.

Fox News is now promoting itself as the “opposition” channel. With Tucker at the helm, they need to ask themselves if they really wanna be the “Anti-American” channel.

I’m with Tammy. Fuck you, Tucker.

Diaper Don


cjones12052020

Donald Trump claims nobody respects the troops more than he does. He claims he’s “rebuilt” our military. He even claims he’s restocked our stockpile of nuclear weapons. All of that is bullshit.

The truth is, we’ve spent over $600 billion per year on our military for over a decade before Donald Trump stole the presidency. There’s not a lot of rebuilding required when you’ve been pumping over $600 billion a year into something. Eric Trump even claimed we have new aircraft carriers because of his father. If that’s so, I challenge Eric to name them. We have not restocked our pile of nuclear weapons and I hope we’re not keeping them in a pile. That just doesn’t sound very safe.

But the biggest lie is that nobody respects the military more than Donald Trump. According to reports, he has referred to those who volunteer for our armed services as “suckers and losers.” He told his former chief-of-staff, General John Kelly, while at his son’s gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery, that he doesn’t “get it.” Why would anyone put their lives on the line fighting for their country? He asked, “What’s in it for them?”. That’s the exact type of question a grifter would ask.

And of course Trump doesn’t get it. He dodged the draft to serve during the Vietnam War. You don’t see any of his five kids serving in our military. Granted, Barron isn’t old enough yet but don’t hold out on him joining even the Space Force. Even George W. Bush and Dan Quayle joined the National Guard. These petty little trust-fund baby bastards wouldn’t even join the Kiss Army.

Trump screamed and pitched a fit over reports he doesn’t respect our military. He acted like a diaper baby over it. It seems to me that if you want people to believe you respect our military, then you don’t go blocking a bill that funds the military. You don’t block a bill that provides raises for our men and women who are willing to die for our nation. It also seems to me that if you don’t want people accusing you of being a baby, then you don’t act like a baby.

Donald Trump is threatening to veto a defense bill if it doesn’t include the repeal of a legal shield for internet companies. What he wants is a repeal of a law that protects companies like Twitter and Facebook from posts by third parties.

What that law means is, if a lunatic posts something racists and terrible on Twitter, then it’s the lunatic who should be held liable, not Twitter. There’s supposed to be a good faith measure by the internet companies to find and remove such content. Over the past several months, Twitter has been slapping “not true” labels on a lot of posts by racist lunatics that contain lies and conspiracy theories. They’ve been specifically targeting posts made by an orange racist lunatic. But believe it or not, that’s not what has Diaper Don upset.

I’m sorry, did I refer to him as “Diaper Don?” I only did so because that’s what this is all about.

After Trump’s little teeny tiny press conference where he was seated at a little teeny tiny desk that looked like it was produced by Fisher Price, the hashtag “Diaper Don” started trending. It looks like this: #DiaperDon.

Donald Trump tweeted that these hashtags aren’t really “trending” and Twitter is just making it up. Like with his election fraud claims, Trump doesn’t have any proof or knowledge of that and is just making it up.

What does #DiaperDon trending have to do with funding our military? Absolutely nothing, but there aren’t going to be that many more bills for Donald Trump to hold hostage between now and when he’s Former President (sic) Trump.

He has already threatened to veto the bill, which is over $700 billion, over a provision mandating the Pentagon remove Confederate names from military bases and other property.

So, Donald Trump respects our military so much that he’s threatening to veto pay raises for our troops over a Diaper Don hashtag and removing from bases, the names of people who fought against our troops.

The biggest question here is: Why does anyone who considers themselves a patriot still support Diaper Don?

Suckers and Losers


cjones09082020

Here’s the thing about the Atlantic story about Donald Trump calling those who serve in the military “suckers” and “losers.” It’s believable.

And Donald Trump’s defense hasn’t helped him. He was caught lying twice in his defense.

What backs up the story isn’t just that the anonymous sources are numerous, but that it’s being backed up by other legitimate news outlets. Even Fox News has backed up portions of it.

The other thing that backs it up is Donald Trump doesn’t respect the military. He said John McCain wasn’t a war hero, then said he was only a war hero because he was captured. Then he said he liked “people who weren’t captured.” As if being captured is a shameful failure for someone fighting for their nation. After McCain died, Donald Trump reportedly became furious over flags being lowered to half-mast. All this is disrespectful to the military.

In his argument against the Atlantic story, Trump said he never called McCain a “loser.” That’s a lie because we have it on tape.

Donald Trump has feuded with Gold Star families. If a president is criticized by a Gold Star family, he should keep his trap shut. Not engage into a feud with people who lost a child fighting for their nation.

Donald Trump has lied about the military. He has lied to the military. He tells soldiers and Marines how he gave them raises he didn’t give. He tells them they received their first raises in years thanks to him, which is a lie. Members of our military received regular pay raises throughout the terms of Bush and Obama. Donald Trump says he’s rebuilt the military after it was depleted by Obama, which is strange because we spent at least $500 billion a year on defense during the Obama era. Donald Trump says we have rebuilt our nuclear arsenal which is another lie. Even during last week’s convention, Eric Trump said his dad built new aircraft carriers…plural. Hey, Eric. What are the names of those new aircraft carriers…plural? In case you’re a Republican, “plural” means more than one.

Donald Trump has stopped military exercises with our allies in South Korea which makes them less prepared which makes their situation with North Korea all the more deadly. Why did he call them off? Because a dictator asked him to.

Donald Trump claimed he has called “virtually all” of the families of service members who had died during his term, then rushed out condolence letters after those families said he was lying. Trump has traveled to Dover Air Force Base to receive bodies of those slain in combat only four times, though he says he’s done it “many, many” times.

Finally, Donald Trump has kept his mouth shut over reports Vladimir Putin put bounties on the lives of U.S service members. Donald Trump doesn’t even want to hear anything negative about Russia. Even yesterday, when asked to comment on Russia poisoning another critic of Putin, Trump had to do a whatabout with China.

In the Atlantic story, when Trump was supposed to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he canceled and blamed the rain. He said neither a helicopter or car could get him there. According to four sources, the real reason was he was afraid of what the rain would do to his hair. Reportedly, he said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” Later, on the same trip, he called those who died fighting for America in World War I, “suckers.” In case you’re a Republican, World War I was before World War II.

Donald Trump later gave a story about how he called his wife, Melania, who was back at home in Washington, to complain about how he couldn’t go to the cemetery. Problem is, Melania was actually with him in Paris. In case you’re a Republican, Paris is in France which is another country.

According to aides, on the same trip he asked, “Who were the good guys in this war?”. He also expressed confusion as to why America would intervene on the side of the allies.

Regarding the flag lowered to half-mast for John McCain, Trump reportedly asked, “What the fuck are we doing that for? Guy was a fucking loser.” Donald Trump was NOT invited to McCain’s funeral.

According to three sources, Donald Trump called President George H. W. Bush a “loser” for being shot down in World War II.

While visiting the grave of John Kelly’s son in Arlington National Cemetery, who was killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2010 at 29, Donald Trump turned to Kelly, who was his Homeland Security chief at that time, and later chief-of-staff, and said, “I don’t get it. What was in it for them?”.

Donald Trump lashed out yesterday and basically accused John Kelly of being the anonymous source for these stories. What that means is, it’s all true because Donald Trump knows he made these comments in the presence of John Kelly. It’s kinda like Trump saying reports of him suffering a mini stroke, or several, are fake news…even though NOBODY reported he had any mini strokes.

Donald Trump doesn’t understand service, honor, or principles. He doesn’t understand the purpose of the military. According to eyewitnesses, after a White House briefing given by the then-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joe Dunford, Trump turned to aides and said, “That guy is smart. Why did he join the military?” Yeah, why didn’t he build a tower, bankrupt casinos, grift contractors, run a sham university, and steal from a charity? What a loser.

James Mattis, his former Defense Secretary said, “When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens—much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside.” That was in regards to Trump using the military to clear out protesters outside the White House for his church photo-op with someone else’s Bible.

When Donald Trump was planning his July 4th military parade in Washington last year, he told aides not to include wounded veterans on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees. “Nobody wants to see that,” he said.

Keep in mind for all this that Donald Trump did not serve in the military. Donald Trump received a medical deferment from the draft during the Vietnam War because of the alleged presence of bone spurs in his feet. His niece claims in her book that Trump’s dad paid a doctor to concoct the bone spurs. In the 1990s, Trump said his efforts to avoid contracting sexually-transmitted diseases constituted his “personal Vietnam.”

My father came home from Vietnam wearing shrapnel in his skin. I’m glad Donald Trump can equate that to gonorrhea.

I see posts from current service members and veterans saying they don’t care. They argue they serve the president, no matter who that president is. Keep in mind, cult members need aggressive deprogramming.

But here’s the deal, kids. When you sign up to serve, you take an oath to protect this nation. The man sending people to risk their lives should have at least a basic understanding, respect, and appreciation for those who took that oath and are taking the risks.

And those who have taken the oath need to understand it applies to protecting this nation from a national security threat posing as a president.

Donald Trump is a loser. Those voting for him are suckers.

Donald Trump’s Beautiful Treason


cjones07012020

Donald Trump’s administration is so inept, their coverups are often nearly as bad as the crimes.

When you heard Russian President Vladimir Putin put out bounties for the Taliban to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Donald Trump didn’t do anything about it except continue to invite him to the G7, and your first thought was, “How do I defend this?”, then you’ve failed as a patriot and an American.

Granted you sold your soul to Donald Trump a long time ago but at this point, you’re way past the point of no return.

U.S. Intelligence, which Donald Trump doesn’t trust, uncovered months ago Russia was paying bounties to the Taliban to kill American troops. According to The New York Times, Donald Trump was briefed on this last March. Donald Trump has done nothing…until today.

What did Donald Trump do about it today? He said he was never briefed about it. This is where the coverup is nearly as bad as the crime. and again, Donald Trump is a liar.

Why wasn’t the president (sic) briefed about a hostile nation paying bounties to kill Americans? If this is true, did our Intelligence not trust Donald Trump with this information? If Barack Obama was still president…or anyone else was president other than Donald Trump, he or she would have been briefed. That president would have been expected to defend our nation. That president would have been expected to defend American soldiers. This president (sic) is expected to fail Americans and only concern himself with himself.

Donald Trump is more concerned about defending Confederate statues than U.S. troops. Why, he’s actually enacted penalties for those who attack statues of traitors. Putin? Donald Trump hasn’t tweeted anything against him yet. It helps Putin that he’s not black.

Everything Donald Trump claims he is is a lie. He’s not a good businessman. He’s not a good negotiator. He’s not a good Christian. He’s not a good husband. He’s not a good father. And, he’s not a good American. He pays a lot of lip service to supporting our troops, but he’s never really done so. He claimed P.O.W.s are not heroes and he feuds with Gold Star families. If he wins reelection, he will pull every American troop off the Korean peninsula and abandon NATO.

When it comes to despots, he takes their side over that of U.S. Intelligence. He sides with criminals and spies over “law and order.” He even defends dictators for murdering Americans like he did with Kim Jong Un’s murder of Otto Warmbier. “Kim says he feels bad about it.” I’m expecting a “Putin says he didn’t do it” over this bounty thing real soon.

Earlier this year, four Americans were killed in a car bomb in Afghanistan. Last year, 22 Americans were killed in combat in Afghanistan. I’m no math expert but I counted, and I’m pretty sure 26 is more than four. Why is that significant? Because every Republican in the nation were livid and went apeshit over the four deaths in Benghazi. The Republican-lead House held hearing after hearing on Benghazi. Hillary Clinton as a candidate for president was forced to testify for 11 hours at a House hearing. What have Republicans today said about this new information regarding Russia, the Taliban, and Trump sleeping on it? Nothing.

Now, every Republican must turn against this president (sic). And I’m not just talking about the ones on TV. I’m not just talking about the Never Trumpers or the guys behind the Lincoln Project. I’m not just talking about Kellyanne’s husband. I’m talking about every Republican. Every senator, representative, and governor needs to come out and publicly reject Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has failed America and sold out troops out for his personal little feelings. He’s sold our troops out for his man-crush on Putin. How anyone can still respect that abject failure of a human being is beyond me. Everyone who still rejects this traitor repulses me.

This man has failed with the coronavirus and has cost us more lives. He has put his tiny frail ego before the safety of the American public. Now, he’s turning a blind eye to Vladimir Putin murdering Americans. How much soul does each Republican have left for this guy? How much do you have left for him?

Donald Trump, who is more concerned for ratings and showmanship than being president, is probably concerned over naming for this latest scandal. “Bountygate” is already taken.

A lot of us, and hopefully the majority, are working to save this nation from Donald Trump. If you’re a Trump supporter…still…we’re more than happy to do it without you. In fact, we’re working to save this nation from you.

Some of us love this country more than any individual political leader. Black Lives Matter protesting in the streets and taking down statues of traitors love this country more than you. They defend this country more than you do.

If you love Donald Trump more than America, you should leave. I hope Russia has Kool-Aid.

Just A Good Ole Boy


cjones06132020

Despite all his faults, Donald Trump is still the best president of the Confederacy since Jefferson Davis.

The American Civil War started at Fort Sumter in South Carolina. On April 11, 1861, when Confederate Brigadier General Pierre Beauregard attacked the U.S. fort, commanded by Major Robert Anderson. Today, Beauregard, the guy attacking a United States military base, has a United States military base named after him. Anderson, the guy fighting for the United States of America, does not. You can quote me on this: That’s fucked up.

While military leaders were open to renaming the TEN U.S. military bases named after confederate losers, er…generals, Donald Trump swung for the racist fences yesterday by tweeting he would never allow the renaming of these bases.

In a tweet Donald Trump reportedly labored long and hard over before sending, he said, “These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom. HEROES who won two world wars were trained on the Hallowed Grounds of the bases. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations…Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with. Respect our Military!”

Yes, I had the same exact thought. Oh my god.

Where do I start? OK, first… a “history of winning, victory, and freedom?” He labored long and hard on this? The Confederacy LOST the war which means it was NOT A “victory.” Also, the Confederacy was not fighting for freedom. Also, we trained heroes at these bases to fight in Vietnam which we did not win. You know, that war Donald Trump skirted by claiming he had bone spurs.

How does naming our bases after former foes, traitors, and racists respect our military? I’m hesitant to point out we don’t name U.S. bases after other former adversaries we fought as I don’t want to give Donald Trump and Stephen Miller the idea of renaming any bases after Nazis.

Donald Trump is doubling-down on the racism and the batshit crazy. How racist and backward do you have to be less progressive than NASCAR? Yesterday, NASCAR, that supposed sport where cars drive around in circles that’s popular in the south and only the south, declared the Confederate flag will no longer be allowed at their events. I don’t think the south has taken a blow like this since they lost the war, Hee-Haw was canceled, and Virginia and North Carolina banned indoor smoking.

NASCAR decided to ban the hater flag after hearing the views of Bubba Wallace, a man who defies two stereotypes: A black guy named “Bubba” who competes in NASCAR.

In other news, HBO MAX announced they are pulling “Gone With the Wind” from their lineup and will bring it back later to be presented in its historical context. As in explaining it was made in a much different racist time. Frankly, my dear, a lot of racist who give a damn are freaking the fuck out.

Disclaimer: “Gone With the Wind” was my mother’s favorite movie. I think I’ve seen the movie a thousand times but not all at once. It was always on a loop, like Christmas Story on Christmas day.

A conservative cartoonist who has been on a recent bender of making racist posts on Facebook declared voluntarily yesterday, “I am not a racist.” Then he added the caveat, “Even though I believe ‘all lives matter.'” Shortly after that, he defended “Gone With the Wind” by pointing out that actress Hattie McDaniel was the first black American to win the Oscar as if that makes up for the racist stereotypes and presentation in the movie. I think he’s arguing “Gone With the Wind” is woke. What he failed to mention is that McDaniel’s character in that movie didn’t have an official name as she went by “Mammy.” Also, while McDaniel did win the Oscar, she was not allowed to attend the presentation to accept her award in person.

The bases named after Confederate losers are, Camp Beauregard, Fort Benning, Fort Bragg, Fort Gordon, Fort Lee, Fort Pickett, Fort Polk, Fort Rucker, Fort A.P. Hill (which is here in Virginia), Fort Mammy, and Fort Hood (bonus points if you find the one I made up). Personally, I think we should only slightly change Fort Rucker to “Fort Darius Rucker.” Hey, he’s a southerner. How about Fort Jeff Gordon?

Fort Hood is of particular interest to me. I was born at Fort Hood. My father was stationed there as a drill sergeant and I have a Fort Benning yearbook from 1966…or I did until my little sister stole it over a decade ago and hasn’t returned it despite promise after promise because she’s a typical Trump-supporting-…AAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGHHHH. I have issues but I digress.

How do I feel about renaming the place where I was born and my father served before shipping out to fight in Vietnam? Go ahead and change the name. Renaming the fort doesn’t erase history. It doesn’t erase my father’s accomplishments. It won’t erase me (sorry, haters). To be honest, if my dad was still alive, he’d probably be pissed as hell with talk of renaming it, but dad was wrong about a lot of stuff. He was an NRA member and I didn’t meet him until I was 21 so if he was still alive it’d just be another one of his opinions I don’t care about. How about “Fort Deadbeat,” you no-child-support-paying-son-of-a…Again, I have issues.

But in case you haven’t noticed, it’s usually only white people who get upset about taking down Confederate statues or taking Confederate names off roads and high schools. But look at it like this, why should a black American be forced to have Jefferson Davis’ name on their high school diploma? Again, that’s fucked up. We don’t force Jews to attend Himmler High or Joseph Goebbels Middle school. We don’t even have Eva Braun beauty academies (we don’t, do we?).

America is racist. We still have shit named after people who fought to preserve slavery. We still have their statues up. We still wave their flags. We still have a racist electoral college. We still elect racist presidents.

And the one thing being canceled that really upsets me is the TV show “Cops.” I’m not upset because I’ll no longer be able to watch police chase naked black dudes through alleys and parking lots (I think every show has at least one naked bad guy). I’m upset there won’t be an episode when they arrest Donald Trump. I would buy the Pay-Per-View to watch him get tased while wearing a wife-beater.

White boys, white boys. Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna watch with your racist crew, white boys?

A Trumpian Oath


cjones01162020

Remember when people protesting war or American involvement in the Middle East would chant, “No blood for oil?” How quaint, right? Now, Donald Trump might ask, “How much oil?”

When you serve in the U.S. military, you go without question. You obey orders. And you serve your Commander in Chief, no matter if you like, love, or loathe him. No matter if he’s a veteran himself or a draft dodger. Now, it doesn’t even matter if your Commander in Chief is a bone-spur citing draft dodger who feuds with Gold Star families and P.O.W.’s while claiming they’re not heroes. Now, it doesn’t matter if your Commander in Chief is selling your ass to the highest bidder.

When you’re a parent and you watch your kid go into the military, while hoping they serve with dignity and pray for their safety, you also hope their Commander in Chief has good judgment that places their lives in danger. You hope their Commander is worthy of being their Commander in Chief. You hope their Commander in Chief isn’t a treasonous and corrupt dumbass.

During the presidential campaign of 2016, Donald Trump, who is now our Commander in Chief (sic) decried George W. Bush for not taking all of Iraq’s oil, demonstrating a serious lack of understanding the purpose of our military.

After calling for pulling troops out of Syria, Donald Trump as Commander in Chief (sic) changed his mind and allowed a few to remain to “protect the oil.”

Donald Trump has demanded that South Korea pay more, not just a larger share of defense cost, but to the U.S. for American troops to stay in that nation. Or what? As Commander in Chief (sic), he’ll pull them out?

Now, Donald Trump is boasting that he, as Commander in Chief (sic), got Saudi Arabia, a very repressive nation that is not a democracy or one that shares any of our values, to pay $1 billion for the increased troops he’s sending to that nation.

Talking to Laura Ingraham on Fox News, because he’s afraid of real journalists and news outlets, Trump said he told Saudi Arabia, “Listen, you’re a very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us. They’re paying us. They’ve already deposited $1 billion in the bank.”

Of course, nobody knows which bank that is or has accounted for that statement. It may be as whimsical as Trump’s “four embassies” comment. Also, we need to see Trump’s taxes and other financial statements because, how do we know he’s not getting some of that money? This is Donald Trump we’re talking about here. He’s corrupt.

If you’re a parent of a service member, do you honestly trust that your kid’s life isn’t on the line for Donald Trump’s pocketbook? Do you trust this man isn’t using your child as his own personal mercenary? It’s not like any of his kids are putting their asses on the line.

Whether it’s personal or not, the United States military is not to be used as mercenaries. Donald Trump is not worthy of being Commander in Chief. No blood for oil? How about, no blood for Trump?

Unfortunately, Donald Trump is Commander in Chief. And that’s just sick.

Walk For Captain Bone Spurs


cjones11292019

It amazes me that Trump’s supporters have confidence and respect in his ability as Commander in Chief. This is a man who has never respected the military. Saying you respect the military doesn’t actually mean you do, just as saying “no quid pro quo” while extorting someone doesn’t mean there’s no extortion.

Donald Trump dodged the draft. He got the rich-kid deferment when his daddy paid a doctor to vouch for Trump’s bone spurs.

He claimed that avoiding STDs during the 80s was his Vietnam. Seriously. He said going to a boarding school was exactly like military training.

He said a POW was only a hero “because he got captured” and also said, “I like people who aren’t captured.” He has feuded with Gold Star families. He’s continued to feud with the dead POW. He’s stood before our troops and lied to their faces over their pay. Once, he even lost an aircraft carrier.

Today, he’s decreasing our military’s preparedness on soon-to-be broken promises by Kim Jong Un. He’s given classified information to Putin. He’s revealed we have nuclear weapons in Turkey. He pulled our troops out of Syria, abandoning our allies, and telling the world they can’t trust the United States, or our military, anymore. Hell, when it comes to Russian spies vs. American law enforcement, he sides with the Russian spies.

Now, Captain Bone Spurs, who once said he knows more than the generals, is preventing the military from disciplining one of their own.

Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher texted photos of himself with the corpse of an Islamic militant with the message, “I have got a cool story for you when I get back. I have got my knife skills on.” Donald Trump described his behavior as “tough.” I don’t think “tough” is the word to describe someone who poses with corpses.

While he was acquitted of the murder of the militant, he was in danger of being demoted by the Navy…until Donald Trump got involved.

Shouldn’t military discipline be left to the military without meddling from the draft dodger? Of course, but this draft dodger is the president (sic). Also, Bernard Kerik, a former business partner of Trump’s personal goon, Rudy Giuliani, has been making the rounds on Trump TV advocating for Gallagher, who changed his legal defense team to include a lawyer from Trump’s real estate company.

Trump tweeted out support of Gallagher and according to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, ordered him to stop a disciplinary review of the Navy Seal. The person who was disciplined in all of this is Secretary of the Navy, Richard Spencer. Esper has accused Spencer of going behind his back to make a secret deal with the White House. In this proposed deal, Spencer promised that Esper would fix the review so Gallagher wouldn’t be demoted. Esper says this violates the chain of command. Yet, it’s Trump who’s demoralizing the military.

Yes, the president can intervene in military cases and decisions. That doesn’t mean he should. He’s teaching the rank and file that if they can get an advocate to hawk their case on Fox News, get sympathy from Donald Trump, then they don’t have to worry about discipline. Pretty soon, the military will have even less discipline than Trump’s boarding school.

Soon, serving in the military will be like Donald Trump avoiding Gonorrhea in the 1980s. Except for members in our military, Trump is the disease.
