Mueller

Stomp The Yard


cjones12112017

One thing I enjoy bashing my conservative cartooning colleagues over are talking points. They will repeat anything barked at them from Fox News. They’ve always been that way except now, they get their talking points from an illiterate narcissistic racist idiot.

If Trump says there were good people among Nazis, then conservatives start talking about all the good people among the Nazis. If Trump says Antifa is chock-full of terrorists, then they find new reasons to demand arrests of liberals and black people. If Trump deflects by talking about an affair Bill Clinton had in 1998, then let’s talk about 1998 and not about Access Hollywood. If Trump says “fake news,” then they’re accusing the media of printing lies all while they share links to Breitbart. Seriously, when you all follow the same script then there’s not one bit of difference between any of you. How many Hannities do we need?

And, I don’t know who came up with “snowflake,” but it’s ridiculous because conservatives are the whiniest people ever. Old, white, Christian males are not being persecuted. There has never been a war on Christmas.

If Trump says protesting against racism is disrespecting veterans, then they stop watching football. Then, he attacks those who are investigating him and his followers start attacking the FBI.

Wait a minute. How is it disrespectful to our troops to kneel during an anthem, yet these proud defenders of patriotism can attack the men and women who serve in the FBI? Keep in mind, we can’t criticize the police either.

Trump has been bashing the FBI and the Special Counsel’s investigation into his campaign’s collusion with Russia. Trump is turning up the deflection and attacks as Robert Mueller inches closer. There have been arrests, indictments, and now there are reports subpoenas have gone out for Trump’s finances.

An FBI agent was reassigned from the Special Counsel’s office after it was discovered he sent personal text messages critical of Trump to another FBI agent. He was also working the case investigating Hillary Clinton. Republicans are treating this like a smoking gun, though none of them have actually seen the text.

Republicans in Congress and the idiots at Fox News are trying to sow doubt about the integrity and impartiality of the FBI, the Special Counsel’s investigation, and that of Robert Mueller. Those people who express outrage at anything they deem disrespectful of our anthem, the flag, and American troops, show their true patriotism by attacking those who are investigating Russia’s meddling in our presidential election. For them, it’s not just party over country. It’s Trump over country. A foreign adversary has attacked our nation and these “patriots” are covering for the bad guys.

Republican Congressman Robert Goodlatte, of Virginia, said to FBI Director Christopher Wray, “We cannot afford for the FBI — which has traditionally been dubbed the premier law enforcement agency in the world — to become tainted by politicization or the perception of a lack of even-handedness.” Basically, he doesn’t want the FBI to become like a Congressional investigation led by Republicans.

During the campaign, there were questions whether Rudy Giuliani had leaked reports from the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Email server. Where was Fox News and all these Republicans expressing outrage and concern about “politicization” or the “lack of even-handedness” then?

There is no evidence that agent’s political opinions, which we all have, are affecting any investigations into Trump. Though I will give you that it may be challenging finding educated, intelligent, and enlightened individuals to work with whom don’t believe Donald Trump is dumber than poop on a stick.

I’m sick of phony patriots and Christians and wish more people would see them for what they are. They’re all lying hypocrites. If you want to be Donald Trump’s mule, then go ahead but, you need to be recognized for it.

I hope America is better than you. I know the FBI is, and that’s what’s scaring you.

Deutsche?


cjones12082017

Robert Mueller is following the money.

According to reports which the White House are denying so you know they’re true, the Special Counsel’s office has subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for records of their financial dealing with Donald Trump.

Deutsche Bank is a German bank based in Germany and it’s well known as a place for Russian oligarchs to launder their money. They’re also one of the few, if not the very last, banks that will loan money to Donald Trump, as most banks have learned he’s corrupt, untrustworthy, and just an all-around piece of crap of a human being. Which, by the way, must be the kind of character you want to lead the largest democracy on the planet.

The German bank, which Trump has sued in the past and they’ve sued in return, has loaned Trump an estimated $300 million. They also do a lot of business with Jared.

If Trump was not a billionaire, he wouldn’t be able to get a membership at Costco.

Creative notes: Yeah, this cartoon is dangerous. It’s an online exclusive. I’m not sending it to my clients. I know they won’t run it and I don’t want to give them any heart attacks. If any of them, like my alternative weeklies or online-only clients, sees this and wants it then I’ll send it to them.

Is “douche” offensive? Sure. Is it sexist? I don’t think so. It’s no worse than being called a “dick.”

I created this pretty quickly because I just wanted to have some fun with it. I didn’t want to spend too much time on it since it’s not going to make me any money.

Furt Those Tweets


cjones12052017

After Trump fired his National Security Adviser Michael Flynn (after being on the job for only 24 days), he tweeted that he fired him for lying to Vice President Mike Pence. On Saturday, a tweet went out from Trump’s Twitter account stating he fired Flynn, not just for lying to Pence, but also for lying to the FBI.

This is where it gets troublesome for the orange doofus. Former FBI Director James Comey testified that Trump asked him, after he fired Flynn, to drop the case investigating him. If Trump knew Flynn lied to the FBI, breaking the law, then Trump was obstructing justice.

Trump’s legal team isn’t very good, but they know this. His outside lawyer, John Dowd, bit the bullet and took the blame for the tweet, stating he wrote it, and not Trump. Was Dowd also the one who snorted a line then tweeted out “Covfefe” at 3:00 AM too?

Proving he only has shoddy legal advice, Dowd said the tweet isn’t admitting an obstruction of justice. He’s also arguing that the president cannot obstruct justice because he’s the nation’s chief law enforcement officer. This guy might wanna look into a little episode called Watergate. Trump’s lawyers have also assured him the investigation will be over by January.

Trump is on the record stating he fired Comey because it would end the investigation into his collusion with Russia. Trump told this to the Russian ambassador and the Foreign Minister in the Oval Office. He told the same thing to journalist Lester Holt. Now, Trump is saying he never asked Comey to “go easy” on Flynn. Since Trump has a track record of lying about everything, from birtherism to crowd sizes to pussy grabbing, are we to believe him or Comey?

Someone, I can’t remember who, said Trump’s downfall will be his Tweeting. I believe that. It’s his own big fat mouth that is the cause of there even being a Special Counsel investigation. This weekend, he has attacked the FBI on Twitter, and this morning, he used his account to finally officially endorse a suspected pedophile for the United States Senate. Last week, he tweeted out videos created by a racist and anti-Islamophobic group in Britain. It’s disgusting and very disappointing what Trump is doing to his office.

If Trump’s lawyer really did send out that tweet, then he should be fired. If Trump sent it out, he needs to be fired too.

Creative notes: Saturday morning, I was sitting in the breakfast nook at home with my friends and one of them asked if I’d rush out a cartoon on the Senates tax cut vote. I told her I’d wait until Sunday, as I wanted to take Saturday night off, and I’d still be one of the first cartoonists to cover it. I was wrong.

I started working on a cartoon on that subject at 3:00 AM. Around 5:30, I thought of this idea. Suddenly, the 51 grim reapers I was drawing weren’t as interesting to me anymore. I really liked this idea. So, I put it aside and did this.

I like Rocky Horror but I’m not super goofy about it. Back in the 80s,  some friends and I went to see it at the theater and wore trench coats and threw rice at the screen. My best friend tried to sneak an egg into the place. I don’t know who he was going to pelt with it, but a busky security woman grabbed him by the crotch, where he was hiding the egg, and crushed it. He had to spend two hours sitting in the theater with yolky genitals. I don’t know how she knew he had the egg down there. Oh yeah. I told her.

Tonight: I’m doing the Ask Me Anything thing at 8:00 PM EST. A lot of people have already left questions. You should too. It should be fun, interesting, amusing, and maybe a little educational. It’ll be a must read if you’re a cartoon geek. Eighty-nine people have RSVP. How cool is that? I hope you check it out. Please do so I’ll look important.

Flynn Flam


cjones12042017

Donald Trump asked then FBI Director James Comey to drop the bureau’s investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Trump did this because Flynn “is a good guy.” Trump did not want the investigation stopped because Flynn is a good guy. He wanted it ended because of what Flynn knows. Trump has asked Senators to end their investigations of Flynn also. Flynn might be the only person other than Vladimir Putin who Trump hasn’t derided or made an immature nickname for…yet.

Flynn was by Trump’s side through much of the campaign. After Trump secured the Republican nomination, he started receiving security briefings. Flynn attended these briefings which included details on Russia’s meddling in our election. During this time and after Trump won the presidency, Flynn was in secret talks with Russia trying to undermine current U.S. foreign policy.

Flynn was working as a lobbyist for the Turkish government while he was working on the Trump campaign and advocated for the U.S. government to expel a rebel cleric and enemy of the Turkish president. He lied about his involvement with Turkey on his foreign-agent disclosure forms.

Flynn also failed to report to the Defense Department’s inspector general’s office about his trip to Russia, where he sat next to Putin during a celebration for a Russian propaganda outlet. He also failed to report how much he was paid and later said in interviews that he didn’t know if he was paid.

When Trump first met President Obama at the White House, the legitimately-elected president told the one propped by Putin not to hire Flynn. Obama knew Flynn was compromised with Russia. Trump hired Flynn as his National Security Adviser anyway. Later, acting-Attorney General Sally Yates told the White House that Flynn was subject to blackmail from the Russians. Trump fired Yates.

Flynn lasted on the job for 24 days. Trump says he fired Flynn for lying to Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia, while also defending his contacts with Russia. He didn’t fire him for lying to Pence. Trump fired Flynn because The Washington Post found out about his lies. Firing Flynn, then asking for investigations to cease looking into Flynn, and firing the director of the FBI, is all part of Trump’s cover-up and obstruction of justice.

Flynn has now struck a plea bargain with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and he has pled guilty to lying to the FBI. Defenders of Trump claim this confession doesn’t have anything to do with Trump. They are overlooking why Mueller would agree to a deal with Flynn. The deal is made because Flynn is now cooperating with the Special Counsel’s office. Flynn was directed to talk to Russia by Jared Kushner and has said others on the transition team, headed by Pence, knew about the interactions.

Flynn can’t be explained away by the administration as a coffee boy or someone who didn’t have much of an impact with the campaign. As the expression goes, Flynn was “in like Flynn.” Flynn was by Trump’s side, speaking at rallies, attending strategy meetings and security briefings. Flynn was probably more involved and connected to Trump than anyone else not related to Trump.

Flynn violated the Logan Act, a federal law that imposes fines and/or imprisonment for unauthorized citizens who negotiate with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. Flynn told Russia not to retaliate against the United States for enacting sanctions against them, and tried to get the Russians to vote or delay a vote against Israel. Nobody has ever been prosecuted for breaking this law, but we’re in a lot of new territory with the Trump administration. Flynn’s plea will likely keep him out of prison, and send others there instead.

Trump’s lawyer, Ty Cobb, referred to Flynn Friday as a former official of the Obama administration. That’s true, but Obama fired Flynn and told Trump not to hire him, proving that our previous president has a lot better judgement than our current one.

Flynn famously joined the crowd at the Republican National Convention in shouting “lock her up,” and stated, “if I did one tenth as she did,” referring to Hillary Clinton, “I would be in jail.” As Flynn left the courthouse Friday, a small crowd greeted him with “lock him up.” Being that Flynn is a Republican I am not sure he can appreciate the irony.

Trump’s administration is in a contest with those of Reagan and Nixon for which will have the most members indicted, charged, and sent to prison. I have my money on the Trump administration.

Indictment Palooza


cjones11022017

If you’re feeling squishy about yourself because you boldly predicted Mueller’s first indictment would be for Paul Manafort, give yourself an obvious cookie. What will you predict next? Sarah Huckabee Sanders will deflect with something stupid?

One person who deserves a cookie, or an entire box, is Robert Mueller. This man, despite being accused of leaking by Trump sycophants, keeps his cards close to his vest. Manafort was not a surprise. Rick Gates, OK that makes sense. George Papadopoulos? Who? I recall hearing about that guy months ago and how bizarre it was that his qualification to serve as one of Trump’s foreign policy advisers was that he played on the model U.N. when he was in school. But, if you had picked Papadopoulos then that would have been as brilliant as when I picked Adrian Peterson in fantasy football his rookie year. Though, with my fantasy football team, that involved more dumb luck than brilliance.

Donald Trump and his idiotic followers have been telling us for about a year that there has been no collusion with Russia. It’s all “fake news.” Every intelligence agency tells us there was collusion. Facebook and Twitter have told us Russia bought ads, thus collusion. Trump even begged for Russia’s help during the campaign. Yet, it’s all “fake news.” Now, it has come out that Donald Trump Jr. wasn’t the only goon seeking information on Hillary Clinton from the Russians. How much longer are the sycophants going to continue parroting the lies from the Trump administration?

Mueller indicted Paul Manafort on twelve counts, some being conspiracy against the United States. Trump has boasted that all the charges against Manafort and Gates were for crimes committed before they worked for Trump. Like it’s a great big accomplishment that his campaign manager conspired against America. It’s indicative of what kind of people Trump surrounds himself with. Next time he hires someone, he needs to conduct a background check that at least involves reading their Wikipedia page.

Just after Trump tweeted that he had no connection to the crimes and there was no collusion, word came out about Papadopoulos and how he was seeking collusion with Russia as a representative of the Trump campaign. Oops.

Papadopoulos pleads guilty to lying to the FBI and has made a deal with Mueller. He’s cooperating with the Special Counsel’s investigation and has been for months. Does this mean he may have had conversations with Trump people while wearing a wire. Oh, please say yes.

Trump’s defense is that he doesn’t remember Papadopoulos, despite claiming he has one of the best memories. He and his collection of stupid people have claimed that Papadopoulos was a low-level staffer, thus he didn’t have any real important job with the campaign. They made it sound like the guy only fetched coffee and made copies. In reality, he fetched covfefe.

A low-level staffer was apparently what his campaign was looking for to make connections with Russia. In one email from a top unnamed staffer, he was encouraged to travel to make a connection between Trump and Putin. One email read, “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips, It should be someone low level in the campaign so as not to send any signal.” If that is not collusion then I don’t know what is. It’s a lot heavier than the Uranium deflection or hiring someone to conduct opposition research on your opponent.

For a low-level guy, he got some good play from Trump. The then-candidate mentioned him as an adviser and how he was a good person. A photo has also surfaced of him sitting at the same table with Trump and Jeff Sessions at a policy meeting. He was not delivering coffee.

The White House says they believe Mueller is wrapping up his investigation. This just might be the end of the beginning. Mueller is just warming up his arm. There could be more charges on Manafort. Papadopoulos may not be the only one who’s been secretly working with Mueller. This will and probably has already, created an environment in the White House where no one trusts anyone. Who’s wearing a wire? Who’s working with Mueller? Who will send me to prison so they don’t have to go? What a great working environment. They go in thinking they’ll serve four to eight but in reality, most will be looking at ten to twenty.

What I’m looking at is how many people will be convicted of lying to the FBI, because everybody who works for Trump lies their ass off. I feel sorry for Huckabee Sander’s future jailhouse bitch. I’m going to feel sorry for Sean Spicer and Jared when they’re both the jailhouse bitches. When Trump testifies, and he will, he will commit perjury. The man can’t talk about anything without telling a lie. I bet that chocolate cake even tasted like crap.

Despite their argument that they’re focused on the nation’s business, the White House is panicking. There’s a report that Trump wants Ivanka and Jared out of the White House and return to the private sector. He should never have brought his kids into his corruption.

There are things to expect, like Michael Flynn’s upcoming indictment. There will also be surprises. Apparently, this Mueller guy is really good at what he’s doing. He’s not distracted by shiny objects.

Shit got real yesterday. It’s only going to get worse for the White House. There are reports that Trump was fuming at the indictments. Expect a full meltdown when Mueller goes after his taxes.

I’ll supply the popcorn…and the ink.

Creative notes: I tweeted out the line to this cartoon yesterday. As I started working on an idea this morning (after having several), I kept going back to my smart-ass comment on social media. I liked it better than the cartoon I had started. So, I debated myself and stared at the Surface Pro for an hour before deciding to erase everything and start over.

I hate tweeting out the idea before I use it, because that ruins the surprise for my readers on social media, at least for the ones who saw it. Also, a fellow cartoonist once admitted to me that he got one of his cartoon ideas from one of my tweets. Sheesh. You’re supposed to get your ideas from Trump’s tweets, not mine.

Smearing Mueller


cjones06192017

If you get caught cheating on your significant other, your defense might be to blame the informer with “you’re going to believe her? She’s a big fat slut!”. The “big fat slut” defense may work if your significant other is stupid, but it doesn’t change the fact you’re guilty.

President Trump informed us, several times, that former FBI director James Comey told him three times that he was not under investigation. New reports inform us that Trump is NOW under investigation by the Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Trump is totally freaking out.

Sources close to Trump have informed the press that the president is obsessed with the investigation into his ties with Russia. They tell us he can’t stop talking about it and even TiVos morning news shows so he can watch them at night. His Twitter usage doesn’t dispel the idea that he’s a man is obsessed. Now the Trump team has taken to smearing Robert Mueller.

Yesterday, Trump tweeted “You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history — led by some very bad and conflicted people!”. This morning he tweeted “After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my “collusion with the Russians,” nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad!” Yes, Donald. When your henchman stonewall during Senate testimony it’s tough to find evidence.

The Special Counsel is loading for bear. He’s hired at least 12 lawyers, many with experience as prosecutors, investigators, and members of the FBI and Justice Department. They have opened the investigation into Jared Kushner’s business dealings and contacts with Russia (hard to see how going to a Russian bank has anything to do with diplomacy), and now Mike Pence is “lawyering up.”

Trump, who can barely conceal his cards, is obviously afraid of what the investigation will find. At some point, they will look at his tax returns and find out who loans him money since American banks don’t trust the Trump brand.

When Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel, Newt Gingrich praised the selection. He said Mueller was a “superb choice” and declared that “his reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity.” Now he says it’s a “rigged game.” Newt is upset that Mueller, a Republican, has hired attorneys who have donated to Democrats in the past. He wants Mueller to hire just as many “pro-Trump” attorneys. This isn’t a bipartisan Congressional baseball game, Newt. Let’s not forget the fact that Newt is hoping his wife receives an ambassadorship from Trump.

Newt, who forgets a lot (like he’s married and probably shouldn’t stick his penis in some strange), has forgotten that the Special Counsel has to abide by Justice Department rules when hiring, and that is they can’t take political or ideological affiliation into account when hiring.

Trump’s personal legal team, led by Marc Kasowitz has issued talking points and the president’s sycophants are following them to the letter.

First, they’re upset about the leaks to The Washington Post that Trump is being investigated. They’re blaming the Special Counsel and the FBI. Trump was considering firing Mueller two days ago, so that’s when he probably found out he was under investigation, thus the leaks probably came from his staff. They’re also upset that the news of the investigation came out on Trump’s birthday. Can you think of a better gift for a lying piece of crap who has everything?

Kasowitz started off the attacks by decrying the “illegal” leaks. Remember, this guy is a lawyer and that the leaks really are not illegal.

The Republican National Committee is decrying the leaks and arguing that there isn’t a reason to investigate obstruction of justice toward Trump, who has admitted more than once that he fired Comey to end the FBI’s investigation. Sean Hannity has also called for an end to the investigation. These are people who are afraid of what will be found.

Previously, Trump has called several people to ask them to make public statements that there isn’t an investigation into him. He made the request to Comey and then fired him after he didn’t do it. Last night, a very odd statement was released from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein downplaying the investigation and warning of leaks. It sounds very much like the sort of statement Trump was asking others to make. Rosenstein should be aware that Trump funk may not completely ever wash out.

Just as Trump will face great difficulty having his word believed over James Comey’s, he will experience trouble smearing Mueller.

Mueller is the second-longest serving director of the FBI. He’s the longest-serving director who was not a crossdresser. Trump was interested in installing Mueller into that post again.

Mueller has served as a U.S. Attorney, a U.S. Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division, and as Acting-Deputing Attorney General. When his term expired as FBI director, President Obama asked him to stay on for two more years. He has served a Republican and a Democratic president (being appointed by both). He served in Vietnam and was awarded a Bronze Star, two Commendation Medals, the Purple Heart, and the Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry. In comparison, Trump has said his “Vietnam” was the risk of acquiring a venereal disease while he was screwing around.

If Trump didn’t have anything to fear, he’d shut up and let Mueller go about his job of not finding anything. The problem for Trump is that Mueller is finding things.

Kathy Gets A Head


cjones06032017

Liberals are supposed to be tolerant, especially when compared to Republicans. Most are. But when you start wishing violence and even death on your opposition, you’re not any better than Ted Nugent.

The libs who post such nonsense justify it by saying their target is worthy of a death wish. No, they’re not. Not even Donald Trump. Hell, not even Ted Cruz (who even a few Republicans have wished violence upon). It’s not cool. It’s NEVER cool.

I wish I could say it’s uncommon, but that would be a lie. I see posts from liberals wishing very hateful things on Trump and his administration quite frequently. It disgusts me. It’s not a nice thing to do, especially when you’re supposed to be going high when they go low, and it destroys your argument….unless your argument is armed insurgency.

The comedian Kathy Griffin staged a photo shoot this week with her holding a prop of a bloody Donald Trump head. Conservatives immediately went after her and a lot of them said it was typical of liberals. Donald Trump Jr., who’s usually chopping off heads of wildlife, tweeted “it’s not surprising.” He also said, “imagine if conservatives did this to Obama as POTUS” (they did). Most liberals were disgusted too. Chelsea Clinton condemned it and you know she’s not a fan of Donald Trump.

Conservatives also stated that Kathy Griffin isn’t funny anymore. Dudes and dudettes, Kathy Griffin was NEVER funny. Never. Never ever. I’ve been told that women find her funny but women also think cats are interesting, so who knows (I’m gonna get some shit for that one).

Griffin posted a video “begging” for forgiveness. Seriously? It took backlash for you to realize that posing with a bloody Trump head was a bad idea? Kathy Griffin does not represent liberals or any political ideology. She’s an idiot.

As I said, it’s not cool. I didn’t even like it last week when Bloom County cartoonist Berkeley Breathed scammed the internet with a fake letter from Donald Trump’s attorney that was threatening a lawsuit. The internet believed it. They had a hard time believing it was a fake because left or right, everyone has confirmation bias. I was even accused of being a sycophant for Trump when I pointed out it was fake. How dare I reveal the truth.

We want to believe the worst about the people we hate, even if it’s not true. If you hate the guy you’re less likely to do any research into the shit you find on the internet. I found it ironic that so many liberals were falling for “fake news” over the Breathed thing. As it turns out, he was just trying to sell some crappy T-Shirts.

Here’s the thing, peeps: You don’t have to make stuff up. Donald Trump will legitimately overreact and threaten to sue somebody. He’s done it before. And if given enough time, he’ll cut off his own head.

The other thing is: You just gave the perpetually victimized Republicans another reason to whine. They already believe their whiteness, Christianity, and Christmas itself, is under attack by progressives. You give them an even bigger reason to go all snowflake on us.

Even Trump freaked out about the Kathy Griffin pic. He must have stopped his “covfefe” in mid-tweet to freak out. He tweeted that it disturbed his son, Barron. Dude, are your nannies not supervising his online viewing habits? Was the picture posted at Pornhub? But hey, no one’s supervising The Donald’s internet usage so why would they with Barron?

During the Obama administration, effigies of him were hung. Posters were created to make him look like a terrorist. Ted Nugent threatened to shoot him (did he ever apologize?). Obama’s critics accused him of being a Muslim-terrorist sympathizer who wasn’t born in this nation. Obama kept his head above it all (no pun intended). But we’re talking about Trump here. A man who believes he’s the most unfairly treated president in the history of presidents…or people. So good job, Kathy. You gave Republicans another reason, when they usually just make them up, to whine to pretend they’re oppressed.

Griffin is a correspondent for CNN during their New Years Even broadcast with Anderson Cooper. There’s talk that CNN may ditch her for this event. New Years is six months from now but conservatives have a long memory when it comes to butt-hurt. I think they should fire her, and if it’s for this, so be it. She doesn’t bring any newsworthy to their network or broadcast. Whoops! Just got the update. CNN just axed her (pun totally intended). She also lost a gig endorsing Squatty Potty which is something I don’t want to research.

And Trump, who already hates women, shouldn’t spend too much fretting about Kathy Griffin. Robert Mueller is coming for his head.
