Putin On The Blitz


CNN01232022

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

I already wrote about the subject so let me write about the cartoon. I had a great time drawing this cartoon.

I usually send several ideas in rough sketches to my editors at CNN. Occasionally, I only have to draw one. Rich was my editor this week and he said I hit it on the first try. I was really excited to draw this cartoon but also daunted that I now had to draw this cartoon.

The rough is very detailed for a rough. I was really getting into it so I drew more for it than I usually do. I considered making the final version on top of it, but I put it aside and started over. I was afraid the final version wouldn’t be as good as the rough, and that happens a lot. But I think this one came out pretty well. I especially liked the animation of it.

A colleague told me it inspired him to do more aerial views. It’s a good way to depict the Oval Office.

Music Note: There was a weird musical mix for the drawing of this cartoon, but I needed a lot to get into the crosshatching zone. I listened to Buddy Holly, Supertramp, and Sublime.

Extra Crispy Hookers


CjonesRGB01022021

Russian President Vladimir Putin requested a phone call with President Joe Biden, which was held yesterday. This was the second time the two presidents talked to each other in December. So, what’d Putin want? Putin wants Ukraine and for the U.S. to stay out of the way and not hit Russia with sanctions.

Putin may not physically take Ukraine, but he wants the nation under his influence. In the past, Ukraine had a president who was a Putin puppet, Victor Yanukovych. That’s the guy Trump’s 2016 campaign manager, Paul Manafort, worked for (who was later indicted by the Justice Department and later pardoned by Trump). Yanukovych was ousted in a revolution in 2014. the next month, Russia invaded and annexed Crimea. Today, Yanukovych is in exile in Russia while Ukraine’s new president is anti-Russia, pro-democratic, and a friend to the west. We give military aid to Ukraine which Trump used to extort the democratically-elected president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelinsky, to help him in his election against Joe Biden. Trump’s first impeachment was over this extortion attempt.

Putin wants the United States and NATO to ignore Ukraine. Putin has not requested but demanded security agreements that include a guarantee Ukraine will never be accepted as a member of NATO and eastward expansion by the alliance stop. Of course, Biden won’t accept any of this because he’s not a corrupt Putin puppet like the last guy.

Putin warned Biden during the call that any new sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine crisis could lead to “a complete rupture of relations” between Moscow and Washington that their descendants would come to regret.

Is this one of childhood threats like, “I’ll slap you so hard, your grandkids will feel it?”

An aide to Putin said the Russian president told Biden that sanctions would be a mistake, “which our descendants will later appreciate as a huge one” and, “Many such mistakes have already been made over the past 30 years. Therefore, it is advisable not to make such mistakes in this situation.”

Putin has already amassed around 175,000 troops on the Russian border with Ukraine and last week, he test-fired hypersonic missiles. While we don’t want to send U.S. troops to fight in Ukraine, Putin really doesn’t want a fight with America’s military.

Part of the deal with being a part of NATO is that the rest of NATO defends you from all attacks. This is the main reason Putin doesn’t want Ukraine to be a part of NATO as he likes having the option of invading it someday.

If Donald Trump was still president (sic), Putin probably wouldn’t have called him. Trump was another of Putin’s puppets. Putin would just do what he wants with Ukraine if Trump was still president (sic).

During Trump’s run for the presidency in 2016, he praised Putin and compared him favorably over President Obama. He defended Putin’s murdering of his critics. Trump said Putin was “smart” to invade Crimea. During the campaign, Russians were invited to Trump Tower to dish dirt on Hillary Clinton. Trump would read Wikileaks’ published Russian hacks of the Clinton campaign to his racist rally-goers. As president-elect, Trump’s idiot son-in-law, Jared Kushner, tried to establish a backchannel for communications with Russia. Jared flunked his application for a security clearance three times for lying about his contacts with Russia (Trump, as president (sic), eventually overruled the FBI and gave Jared his little clearance). Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, told Russia (in secret talks he later lied about that forced him out of office within a month and later got him indicted for lying to the FBI) not to retaliate to Obama’s sanctions for their election meddling, as they’d reverse them as soon as they assumed office.

Shortly after entering office, Trump hosted Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. in the Oval Office, prevented the U.S. press from attending, and allowed Russia’s press to record the meeting. During this meeting, Trump told the Russians he had solved the American investigation into their meddling and his collusion by firing FBI Director Jim Comey after he refused to give Trump his loyalty, stop the investigation of Michael Flynn, and issue a public statement that the Moscow pee-pee incident never happened. Trump always argued he would never have to resort to paying Russian hookers to pee on him because there are plenty of people who’d pee on him for free.

During a conference with Putin in Helsinki, Trump had a private chat with Putin with only translators present. Afterward, Trump confiscated the U.S. translator’s notes. During the press conference with Putin, Trump took Putin’s side over his own intelligence agency’s findings that Russia meddled in our election.

During another world summit, Trump had an impromptu chat with Putin using only the Russian translator, with no other American official around.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump was actively trying to secure a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. According to reports, Donald Trump promised to give Putin the penthouse in the tower. If this is true, it was a bribe. Bribing a foreign official is illegal in the United States.

After Putin rewrote history and claimed the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979 only because Afghanistan invaded them first, Donald Trump repeated the lie.

While in office, Trump questioned the need for NATO while constantly criticizing it. During the 2016 campaign, he spoke of the U.S. withdrawing from the alliance. According to The New York Times, in 2019, he talked privately about leaving NATO if he was reelected. There was also talk of pulling all U.S. troops out of South Korea clearing a path for Kim Jong Un to take the entire Korean peninsula.

Trump loves him some fascists. Putin is basically president for life in Russia, or at least for as long as he wants. Democracy in that nation is a ruse as Putin has a habit of imprisoning, or poisoning, or both, his political opponents. Donald Trump wants to be America’s Putin and be president for life. In case you don’t recall, Donald Trump attempted to murder Joe Biden by giving him covid during their first debate. This explains the format requested by the Trump Campaign where the candidates got to lick each others’ faces.

Donald Trump has argued he should have three presidential terms. He’s praised China’s President Xi Jinping for being president for life. He defended Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan for being president for life. And you can believe Putin also wants Trump to be “president” of the U.S. again. While Trump was in office, he was Putin’s American Yanukovych. After Putin won a sham reelection, and Trump was advised not to congratulate Putin on winning a sham election, Trump called Putin and congratulated him on winning a sham election.

What I wonder is, do they still talk? Is there a plan for another Trump insurrection? Is Trump seeking Russian assistance, either financially or from another social media gaslighting campaign? White nationalists Trump supporters love Vladimir Putin and Russia. They also love fascism.

I’m glad Joe Biden is president because he’s a Democrat. President Obama didn’t buy Putin’s bullshit either. But Putin is good at duping Republicans. George W. Bush said he looked into Putin’s eyes and saw his soul when he doesn’t have a soul.

But looking into Putin’s eyes is a lot better than what Donald Trump did, which was crawling up Vladimir Putin’s ass.

Tough On Putin


CjonesRGB12142021President Joe Biden is promising to send more arms to Ukraine if Russia invades. That may sound tough, but it’s actually kinda weak. Why not send those arms now, before a Russian invasion? The Biden admninistration has prepared a $200 million military aid package for Ukraine, but they’re holding off on sending that package in favor of diplomacy. I don’t see why they can’t do both. 

When the United States tried to give military aid to Ukraine during the Trump administration, the president (sic) used it for extortion, wanting the president of Ukraine to make up some dirt on his chief political rival. Donald Trump he was impeached for his illegal manuevers and mob tactics.

We don’t know what’s included in the military aid package Biden has crafted, but Ukraine has asked for air defense systems, anti-ship missiles, more Javelin anti-tank missiles, electronic jamming gear, radar systems, ammunition, upgraded artillery munitions and medical supplies. But if Russia rolls into Ukraine, they can pretty much take it just like they did when they formed the Soviet Union.

While Ukraine and some members of Congress are demanding this $200 million military aid package to be sent to Ukraine now, the United States has already sent over $400 million military aid to Ukraine in 2021, with another $50 million in the pipeline. 

Biden had a Zoom conference call with Russian president Vladimir Putin earlier this week when he threatened harsh sanctions if they do invade Ukraine. Many expect those santions to include the Nordstrom 2, a gas pipeline from Russia to Europe, which a lot of our European allies are in favor of, especially Germany. 

What does Putin want with Ukraine anyway? It’s probably personal while also a distraction from Russia’s internal collection of crises. Putin views Ukraine and Russians as basically the same people and that the nation should be closer to Russia than to the west. But Ukraine, led by a pro-democracy president in Volodymyr Zelensky, wants closer ties to the United States, western Europe, and NATO. 

Putin annexed Crimea in 2014 and he may see the rest of Ukraine as unfinished business. If Putin invades Ukraine, he’ll do so while telling the world Ukraine attacked Russia. Putin has been spreading misinformation for years. Remember the 2016 election? You can bet Donald Trump will be eager to help Putin spread lies. When Putin re-wrote history and said Afghanistan invaded the Soviet Union in 1979, Donald Trump repeated the lie. Putin also has the support of anti-democratic Trump supporters in this nation. Trump supporters love Vladimir Putin and fascism. 

President Biden has also announced a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics to beheld in Beijing. This boycott is over China’s human rights abuses of the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang. This boycott means we’re not sending diplomats, but U.S. athletes will still participate. U.S. corporations that sponsor the Olympics will also continue to participate. While Biden’s critics say this is weak, China is pretty pissed off with one Chinese media pundit saying he hopes Biden lives to see a boycott of the Los Angeles Olympics. I guess they really wanted to meet Antony Blinken.

There are also concerns China may invade Taiwan. China views Taiwan the same way Putin sees Ukraine, as though it belongs to them. In fact, China doesn’t recognize Taiwan at all and officially views it as a part of its nation. U.S. policy has been weak with Taiwan for decades as it refuses to recognize it as a sovereign nation and it doesn’t have a seat in the United Nations (they did but China took it). Only 13 nations recognize Taiwan as an independent country. 

Is Biden being weak? What else can he do beyond promising military intervention? The one certainty in all of this is that the United States will not send forces to fight in Ukraine and Taiwan. 

Creative note: This cartoon isn’t one of my usual laugh-yourself-into-the-ground-knee-slapping-hee-hee-pee-yourself-funny cartoons, but I still wanted to do it. It’s been in my head for a few days and I was waiting for someone else to do it. Maybe someone else did think of it but thought it was a bad idea. This is too subtle for social media which means newspapers will probably love it.

Music note: While drawing today’s cartoon, I listened to some Nirvana, Better Than Ezra, and She Bites Dogs. I signed up for a free six-month trial of Apple Music today because I am that annoyed with Amazon Music and the way they just changed everything up. Since I just paid for this month, that gives me a month to go through my Amazon Music and add it to my Apple.
Also, She Bites Dogs is Dorian Cleveland’s band, my friend who just passed away. If you’re on Apple Music, add them and my band, Corporate T-Shirt.

Let’s Go Who?


Cjones11052021

Let’s start the day with honesty. A lot of stuff we said about Donald Trump, myself included, wasn’t very mature. In fact, we were kinda juvenile with it.

Orange Shitgibbon, Orange Julius, Cheeto Jesus, Hair, Fuhrer, Heir Hitler, Heir Ceasar, Diaper Don, Cadet Bone Spurs, Screaming Carrot Demon, Grandpa Fucko, Tangerine Tornado, Mussolini’s Taint, Creep Throat, Shitler, Groper-in-Chief, Trumplethinskin, Drumpf, Fuckface Von Clownstick, Short-Fingered Vulgarian, Adolf Twitler, Putin’s Puppet, Angry Creamsicle, Oompa Loompa, Baby Fingers, Blitzkrieg Bozo, White Kanya, Sniffles the Clown, Bumbledore, Butternut Squash, Cheddar Boy, Sack of Gilded Lunchmeat, Cheeto Benito, Fascist Carnival Barker, Fascist fuckwad, Cinnamon Hitler, Orange Anus, Lady Fingers, and Tiny are all pretty silly nicknames.

However, juvenile they may be, they’re funny, clever, and a hell of a lot better than “Let’s go Brandon.”

What’s “Let’s Go Brandon”? It’s conservatives’ code for “Fuck Joe Biden.” And conservatives say, “The left can’t meme.”

Where did this Brandon shit come from? A NASCAR driver named Brandon won a race and the crowd started chanting, “Fuck Joe Biden.” Why? I don’t know, it’s NASCAR. These are people who sit on top of beer coolers in the sun for five hours in Alabama watching cars drive around in a circle and crash into each other. A redneck winning the race made them want to say, “fuck Joe Biden.” I don’t know why. But, a reporter interviewing the Brandon guy misinterpreted, or tried to cover it for the censors, that the chant was “Let’s go Brandon.” Also, after Brandon won a race, “Let’s go, Brandon” makes more sense at the moment than “Fuck Joe Biden.”

But for the past month or so, conservatives have been tee-heeing to each other that they just dissed the president without liberals knowing. Hee hee hee. Aren’t they clever? They’re owning the libs without the libs knowing what they’re talking about. Good job, conservatives. Hey, your shoes are untied. Made you look! Ha. Ha.

The difference between liberals and conservatives is that when liberals engage in juvenile insults, the insults are usually clever. Also, liberals don’t have to engage in code to insult someone. We don’t say, “Red hen spins a wheel at midnight” when we really mean, “Fuck Trump.” Usually, when we want to express the sentiment that we really don’t like Donald Trump, we say “Fuck Trump.” I’m not going to wink, nod, and nudge-nudge it. I’m going to say, “Fuck Trump.”

Also, our elected leaders should be above this kind of shit, but they’re not. One congressman said, “Let’s go Brandon” on the floor of the House. Ted Cruz said it at an Astros game after being goaded by a fan. Usually, when Ted Cruz says, “Let’s go,” it’s not about Brandon but more like, “Let’s go to Cancun.”

Let me give you another example of how this works: Fuck you, Ted Cruz. Did you misunderstand me? No, you did not because I wasn’t speaking in some stupid code. But just in case you did misunderstand me, “Fuck Ted Cruz.”

Also, how do people who identify as Christians explain their use of this? Take right-wing cartoonist Gary Varvel for example. Granted, he has a history of drawing some racist cartoons and is stupid enough to blame tornadoes on gay marriages, but how does he explain, as a Christian, using “Let’s go Brandon?” How do Christians explain, not just the vulgarity, but the hatefulness of “fuck Joe Biden?” I believe Mr. Varvel teaches a Sunday school class. I challenge Gary Varvel to explain to his class what “Let’s Go Brandon” means and then explain how it’s not hateful toward the president of the United States of America. Gary, I challenge you to explain to your students how you’re not a hypocrite and that Jesus approves of what you’re saying. Did Jesus ever say, “Fuck Pontius Palate?”

And yes, I own being hateful toward Donald Trump. But, in my defense, I really hate Donald Trump. And I don’t hate Donald Trump simply because it amuses me. I hate Donald Trump for what he’s done to this nation. I hate Donald Trump because he’s a racist sexist dumbass traitor to this nation who tried to overthrow an election and install himself as a fascist dictator. Quite frankly, it’s an American patriot’s duty to hate Donald Trump and say, “Fuck Trump.” If you you love America, you will say, “Fuck Trump” with me.

You are more justified to insult someone for trying to destroy democracy than because they defeated your cult leader.

When we insulted Donald Trump with juvenile nicknames, we were insulting a juvenile who also engages in name-calling, though his name-calling is about as clever as, “Let’s go Brandon.”

Conservatives, you think you’re funny and clever, but you’re not. On top of that, you’re cowards. If you want to say, “Fuck Joe Biden,” then say, “Fuck Joe Biden.” And guess what. We don’t care. I’m not going to lose sleep because a bunch of white nationalists has hairs up their racist asses. We understand you can’t get over the fact Biden defeated your cult leader in a democratic election. Wah. Get over it.

I’m a liberal. We’re not cowards with this kind of stuff. When I say, “Fuck Trump,” I want you to know I said, “Fuck Trump.”

Also, I don’t think President Biden should be the one apologizing for what Trump did to the world. The person who should be apologizing for Trump is the man who made him president (sic), Vladimir Putin.

And for that matter, fuck Putin too.

Trump Cabinet


Cjones08082021

You can be forgiven if your first response to hearing Donald Trump is meeting with his cabinet at one of his golf clubs is, “What fucking cabinet? Is he insane?”

Yes. Donald Trump is insane. What’s worse is that people we suspect may not be totally bonkers are enabling his insanity.

If you know someone who thinks he’s Napoleon, you should probably call specialists who send trucks to pick up people like that instead of enabling him with something like, “Pardon, me sir…but will Lady Josephine be joining us at Waterloo today?”

Mark Meadows, Trump’s chief-of-staff from when he actually was president (sic), told Newsmax he visited Trump at Bedminster in New Jersey and, “We met with several of our cabinet members tonight.”

Uh, what cabinet? Let’s make something clear. Donald Trump does NOT have a cabinet because Donald Trump is NOT president. Maggie Haberman of The New York Times said, “I can’t stop thinking about this interview. The former chief of staff is talking as if there’s a shadow presidency going on (there isn’t) at a time when there’s a conspiracy theory that Trump will be reinstated (he won’t).”

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, a non-partisan watchdog group, said, “We can’t believe we have to say this, but no, Donald Trump is not secretly running the country from a golf course in New Jersey.”

I can’t believe I have to say this but Donald Trump is NOT the president.

There are people who still believe Donald Trump is the president. There are others who believe he was robbed and will return to the presidency on August 13. There are people who believe both, that he’s still the president and he’ll be reinstated as president…don’t ask me how that works. Donald Trump is selling all of this.

Lin Wood, a pro-Trump attorney, recently told a crowd of MAGAts, that Trump “is still the guy the military will call” in the event of a crisis. He added that President Joe Biden only APPEARS to be president. Yeah, winning an election, living in the White House, and signing bills into laws will give off that appearance.

Here’s a free legal tip: When hiring a lawyer, ask him or her if they support Donald Trump and if they think he’s still president. If the answer is yes to either, find another lawyer.

Mark Meadows will not identify the members of this cabinet. Here’s a fun fact, presidents don’t have secret cabinets. Cabinet members have to be confirmed by the United States Senate. It’s really hard to keep their identities concealed during confirmation hearings in the Senate. You don’t just pluck fuckers off a golf course and install them into a presidential cabinet. No. You do that with ambassadorships.

But Donald Trump is nuts. He probably believes he has a cabinet because he thinks he’s still president and will be reinstated on August 13. What I need to know now is, what date are they going to claim after August 13 passes and Trump is still just a whiny wedding crashing conspiracy-spreading lunatic on a golf course?

Mike Lindell, the MyPillow lunatic, believes Trump will be reinstated on August 13. There are members of Qanon who believe Trump is secretly controlling the military and they’ll overthrow the Biden presidency for him on August 13. These people don’t seem to understand they are opposing democracy. Donald Trump, in direct opposition to democracy, is trying to become a fascist dictator. We don’t install or reinstate presidents. Presidents in this country are elected.

Is Donald Trump forcing is secret golf club cabinet to sign documents stating the election was corrupt? That’s what he attempted to do with the Justice Department before the insurrection at the Capitol by his white nationalist terrorists.

On December 28, Jeffrey Clark, a Trump goon in the Justice Department and acting head of the Civil Division, addressed a letter to the governor of Georgia and state legislative leaders stating the department was “investigating various irregularities” in the presidential contest and that it had “identified significant concerns that may have impacted the outcome of the election.” It proposed that the Republican-controlled Georgia legislature call a special session, ignore the will of the voters, and send alternate electors to Congress on January 6 giving the state’s electoral college votes to Donald Trump. The Georgia state legislature didn’t do that but now they are changing the laws giving them the power to basically do just that.

The acting attorney general, Jeffrey Rosen, and acting deputy attorney general, Richard Donoghue, rejected the letter. Donoghue wrote, “It is not the Justice Department’s place to tell states how to overturn election results.” I don’t know if Georgia ever got the Trump goon’s letter, but they did get a phone call from Trump telling them to overturn the election.

Donald Trump called election officials in Georgia and told them to “find me the votes.” He was demanding they create votes out of thin air and overturn the election in his favor. He even threatened them with criminal charges if they didn’t comply. He told them, “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.”

On December 15, Trump called Rosen into the Oval Office to insist he file legal arguments claiming the election was stolen. Rosen refused.

This is where it gets good.

On December 27, Trump called Rosen at the Justice Department and told them they “may not be following the internet the way I do,” because they weren’t aware of all the conspiracy theories he had read and believed about the election being stolen. I mean, why couldn’t the Justice Department just take Sidney Powell’s word for it? Why couldn’t the Justice Department just release that invisible “kraken?” At the very least, can’t the acting attorney general spend a few hours every day scrolling through 4chan?

According to notes taken by Donoghue, Rosen told Trump he needed to “understand that the DOJ can’t + won’t snap its fingers + change the outcome of the election, doesn’t work that way.”

The notes record Trumps response as, “I don’t expect you to do that. just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen.”

Two days later, Trump sent Rosen and Donoghue a draft lawsuit he hoped would be filed with the Supreme Court. It was a duplicate of a lawsuit filed by the state of Texas the court had already declined to hear. That was the lawsuit where Republican Trump goons in Texas filed a lawsuit against another state’s election. Maybe that Texas attorney general is on Trump’s secret golf club cabinet.

Trump’s goon in the Justice Department, who had written the conspiracy letter encouraging Georgia to overthrow its election, continued to spread conspiracy theories in the department. Trump was loudly speculating about firing Rosen, who had just replaced William Barr as AG, and replacing him with Clark. On December 31, Rosen and Donoghue called Clark in and told him to cut the shit with the “stolen election” conspiracy theories. Keep in mind that in less than a month, none of these guys would still be in the Justice Department.

Donald Trump tired to steal the election. He tried to overturn it. He had enablers and goons in Congress, states, and the Justice Department helping him try to overturn the election. He initially refused to comply with the transition. He still has not conceded defeat. He tweeted for his supporters to gather in the capital on January 6 to stop the certification of the election saying it was “going to be wild.” On January 6, he held a rally in the capital telling his supporters to “march to the Capitol.” The intention was to stop the certification with a terrorist attack. After the attack, Republicans in Congress still voted to overturn the election. That would have been like Republicans destroying the Pentagon after al Qaida flew a plane into it.

That terrorist attack, the Republicans who voted to overturn the election, Republicans who voted against investigating the attack, and Republicans in states who tried to overturn the election are the reasons why it’s dangerous for people like Mark Meadows to make claims about Trump having a cabinet. It’s dangerous to enable Donald Trump in his claims he’s running a secret government. It’s dangerous because there are MAGAts who want August 13 to be just like January 6, except actually overturning the government this time. While they can’t succeed in overthrowing an election ten months after it happened, they can succeed in creating violence, weakening our democracy, and hurting a lot of people in the process.

Donald Trump can put all the idiots he wants on his pretend cabinet and keep playing fake president, but come August 13 and after, Joe Biden will still be the president of the United States of America.

Pootie Happy Place


Cjones06192021

The talking point on Fox News and with Republicans in Congress is that President Joe Biden is weak on Russia and Vladimir Putin is going to play him. Seriously. Unless President Biden gets down on all fours and allows Putin to use him as a foot stool, he can’t come off weaker than Donald Trump did…and even then, the foot stool strategy would be tougher on Putin than Trump.

Donald Trump wasn’t just soft on Putin…he was a fan boy.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump praised Putin. He praised Putin while criticizing the American president. He loved Putin so much, he defended the guy when Bill O’Reilly pointed out he was a killer. He loved Putin so much, he even lied about meeting the guy. He loved Putin so much, he tried to bribe him with a penthouse in a Moscow Trump Tower.

During the 2016, Russia helped Donald Trump win the presidency. This is a fact. Russia attacked his opponent, hacking into the Democratic Party’s campaign and giving the emails to Wikileaks to publish. Today, no Republican can tell you what was actually revealed. It’s like an, “A-ha! There’s something!” They couldn’t have told you then either, but a lot of goons seemed to think there was something in there about pedophilia at a pizza shop.

Russia was the one doing the hacking and they gave the seized information to Wikileaks. They did this the same day Donald Trump said, “Russia, if you’re listening.” They were listening.

Trump loved Putin so much, that his campaign invited Russians into its headquarters at Trump Tower to provide dirt on Hillary Clinton. Russia already had a “useful idiot” operating inside the campaign. At one point, Trump’s campaign was operated by Paul Manafort, a man who helped a Russian puppet become president of Ukraine. Under his leadership, the Trump campaign gave internal polling to people connected with Russia, who in turn gave that information to Russia.

Russia loved the idea of a Trump presidency so much that they specifically targeted Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, even promoting Jill Stein to pull votes from Hillary Clinton. They knew to do this from the internal campaign polling they had been given. Russia even funneled money into the National Rifle Association for them to spend on campaigning for Trump.

After Trump and Russia stole the White House, Jared went to the Russian embassy to inquire about setting up a back channel for communication. Trump even hired Michael Flynn to be his National Security Adviser, a guy who had been paid to make appearances in Russia.

During Trump’s debate with Hillary Clinton, she accused him of being “Putin’s puppet.” His witty response was, “You’re the puppet.” Later, during his summit with Putin, Trump said he didn’t see any reason why Putin would hack the election. That translates to, “I’m the puppet.” Trump, Putin’s Puppet, took Putin’s word over our national intelligence. During the summit, Trump kicked everyone out of the room except his interpretors so he could be alone with Putin. Afterward, he confiscated the notes from the interpreters.

Donald Trump even gave classified information to Russia when he invited Russians into the Oval Office, where he allowed them to bring recording equipment after he kicked out the American press.

President Joe Biden has to have a summit with Putin just to set him straight. He has to let Putin know the business of Trump is over and that we have a president now who will put our nation before Russia. The praise and worship of oligarchs like Putin and Kim Jong Un, where an American president gives them credibility, is over. There will not be a public press conference with the two presidents.

Vladimir Putin is very experienced when it comes to face-to-face meetings with leaders of democratic nations. President Joe Biden is also experienced with foreign policy and dealing with autocratic leaders. He’s met Putin before. He’s meeting Putin to confront him, not join his fan club.

There is nothing President Biden can do that would endanger our nation more than it was by that national security threat who went to Helsinki to kiss Putin’s ass.

Democracy Death Wish


Cjones06102021

During Donald Trump’s speech to fellow fucknuts in North Carolina over the weekend, he claimed he wasn’t the one trying to destroy democracy…he’s the one trying to save it. During this same speech, he attacked our last democratically-held election as the “crime of the century.” That’s like saying you hate fried chicken while ordering a bunch of wings. You do understand wings are part of the chicken…right? Do you understand elections are a part of democracy?

Trump is a false prophet. Do you expect the anti-Christ to show up dissing Jesus? No. That guy’s going to arrive and tell us he loves God and church-bake-sale potato salad more than anyone and will probably say something about two Corinthians. It’s always the people who say they are the most, who really aren’t. It’s like those guys who say, “I’m not a racist, but…”

North Korea is the DPRK, which stands for Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, even though there’s nothing democratic about that dictatorship. On a side note: Next time someone goes on about “socialist” being in the name of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, the Nazis, ask that dumbass if Kim Jong Un is a Republican because “republic” is in the DPRK’s name.

Donald Trump is not in favor of democracy. He wants to be a fascist dictator like his buddies, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un. He’s telling friends he’s going to be “reinstated” as president, which is something we don’t do. Name one time we’ve ever done that. Explain how it’s done. Point out where it’s covered in the Constitution.

Trump refused to concede the election because fascists don’t concede elections. Name one fascist who’s ever said, “Damn, I lost. OK. I’m going home,” or, “You don’t have Nixon to kick around any more.” Trump is continuing the Big Lie that he won, even though he lost by over seven million votes. He weaponized the presidency and sent terrorists to attack our government to stop the certification of his opponent’s victory.

Just like they’re not really in favor of democracy even thought they claim they are, they’re not constitutionalists either. Sure, they love to spout off half a sentence from the Second Amendment, but they ignore the rest, like they ignore the parts of the Constitution about free speech and a free press. They ignore the part about elections. They ignored the part about Congress certifying the election.

George W. Bush said he looked into Putin’s eye and “saw his soul.” There was a lot to take from that, but the main thing today is that Bush said it over 20 years ago. Vladimir Putin has been controlling Russia for over two decades. That’s not a democratic leader. He’s thrown political opponents into prison (he literally had a pop group thrown into prison for criticizing him. W. could only dream of hard labor for the Dixie Chicks…I’m sorry…The Chicks), had critics murdered, and has changed the nation’s constitution to remain in power. While he has a salary of about $137,000 a year, his worth has been estimated between $70 to 200 billion. He may be the richest man in the world because he considers everything in Russia to belong to him. No wonder Trump has a hard for the guy.

Today, Russians are still conducting cyber attacks into our nation, from gas supplies to our food. Putin will not rest until his puppet is back in power, we have no fuel, and we’re all eating cats.

Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy both initially blamed Trump for the terrorist attack on the Capitol building, but now they’re walking it all back and refusing to allow an investigation into the attack…an attack on democracy.

The MyPillow Guy, he’s advising Donald Trump that he’s going to be reinstated. Fortunately for us, a lot of the democracy haters are former crack heads. And if you have a coupon, that former crack head will give you a second pillow for free after you pay double for the first. I’m NOT making that up.

Michael Flynn, the disgraced general who spent less than a month as Trump’s National Security Advisor and was later pardoned by him, has publicly stated he believes a Myanmar-style coup should happen here. In case you’re a Republican, coups are NOT democratic.

Usually, I’m just trying to be funny with the “in case you’re a Republican” bit. This time, I’m dead serious. In case you’re a Republican, COUPS ARE NOT DEMOCRATIC.

Speaking of treasonous Republicans, they’re seeking to overturn the election in Arizona through fraud. They’re hoping the fraud will catch on to other states that will then overturn their elections…and reinstate Trump. Over 50% of Republicans believe wrongly that Donald Trump won the election and it was stolen by President Biden. A majority of Republicans are in favor or coups, insurrection, and conspiracy theories over democracy. On top of that, Republicans are changing election laws so they can steal power, instead of allowing every eligible voter to add his or her voice.

Republicans love democracy until it works.

Speaking of lunatics, Qanon is a big part of this and these idiots truly believe Donald Trump didn’t just win the election, but that he’ll be reinstated. They keep giving dates for this reinstatement and after those dates pass, they move the goal posts. I keep waiting for them to claim Donald Trump will be reinstated in Schmebuary. When the hell is Schmebuary? It’s a Satanic deep-state secret month that is erased from our memory by Jewish space lasers as soon as it’s over, that has now been exposed to followers of Q. But, Schmebuary is probably some time in the fall or somewhere between January and December. Also in Schmebuary, there are some serious discounts on baby flesh. You pay double for one and you get the second baby for free.

And we have Trump himself who continues to feed these lies to his base (not the discount baby Schmebuary thing…yet. The election lie), furthering division in this nation. He would rather be placed into office than allow democracy to work. Democracy did work and it gave us Joe Biden.

Democracy is under attack and the fuckers above are the main antagonists. Sure, there are co-conspirators like Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and your crazy uncle on Facebook. But they’re enablers. Donald Trump is the main villain.

During his speech over the weekend, Donald Trump said our “country is being destroyed, perhaps by people who have no right to destroy it.” Sometimes, these idiots say the quiet parts out loud.

Does Donald Trump believe he has the right to destroy our country? He must because that’s exactly what he’s trying to do…and he’s getting a lot of help. That’s what democracy-hating fascists do.

Slippery Putin


CNN03212021

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

This cartoon is not about President Joe Biden slipping while walking up the stairs to Air Force One. It’s using the trip to make another point. Back in the day when cartoonists were less tribal, a presidential tripping could be used in a cartoon and it wouldn’t matter if the cartoonist was liberal or conservative. Now, liberals don’t want to mention it and conservatives claim it proves Joe Biden suffers from dementia and his health has drastically fallen over the past two months. Never mind the fact President Biden’s foot was in a cast a couple months ago.

Cartoonist hack A.F. Branco (the “F” stands for “Fucker”) drew Biden going up the stairs in one of those chair lift thingies. He probably got the idea from one of the thousand Facebook memes I saw of the same idea. We can expect to see several more like this from Branco’s comrades. But hey, at least it’s one day where they’re not drawing something racist or in support of terrorists.

Cartoonist Ted Rall is not a fan of Biden and he jumped on the trip up the stairs also. Ted is a Bernie Bro and spent the entire campaign attacking Biden. While he has never supported Trump, the bulk of his attacks were on Biden. Ted has adopted the Russian narrative that President Biden suffers from dementia and is feeble. Republicans have echoed Putin’s talking points out of tribalism and lacking any patriotism or loyalty to their country, but Ted literally works for Putin as he draws cartoons for Sputnik, a Russian state-owned propaganda outlet.

And it is a Russian narrative that Biden is feeble. Even after Biden called Putin a “killer” Putin wished him “good health,” which was partly continuing the narrative and another way of saying, “That’s some nice health you have there. It’d be a shame if something happened to it.”

President Joe Biden tripped walking up some steps. Putin’s critics have a habit of tripping off buildings. Also, they trip and ingest poison.

This cartoon is for CNN. I plan to draw another cartoon on Putin for my clients. I’m probably done with President Biden tripping…unless he does it again.

Follow The Drip


cjones03192021

Yesterday, Rudy Giuliani was nominated for a Razzie Award for his appearance in the second Borat film. It was for the scene where he takes what he believes is an underage girl from Kazakhstan into a hotel room for drinks, lies down on a bed, and sticks his hand down his pants.

One of Rudy’s competitors for the award is Bruce Willis for three films he was somehow able to make during a pandemic that I’ve never heard of. But I heard of Rudy’s performance. What’s worse is I saw it. Ew.

Rudy should win a Razzie, but not for any performance in a movie…and not even for worst hair style. He should win a Razzie for worst American (though he has lots of Republican competition for that one), or maybe best collusion with a foreign government attempting to interfere in a U.S. election.

Just like all those seditious white nationalist terrorists who attacked the U.S. Capitol in a bloody coup attempt for Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani has betrayed democracy and the United States. The man who supposedly became “America’s mayor” for his response to a terrorist attack has become the mayor who enabled a terrorist attack.

A new declassified intelligence report has revealed that to interfere in the 2020 U.S. presidential election to help Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin authorized outside proxies to feed disinformation to Fox News, One America News Network, and…wait for it…Rudy Giuliani. When you look at all three of these suspects, you know convincing them to repeat lies probably wasn’t a very difficult task. Did Russia tell them to freak out over Mr. Potato Head?

The report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence says Russians pushed “influence narratives—including misleading or unsubstantiated allegations against President Biden—to US media organizations, US officials, and prominent US individuals, including some close to former President Trump and his administration.”

What did Rudy do during the campaign? He pushed a lot of bogus bullshit about Hunter Biden being engaged in corruption with Ukraine, a nation that’s an enemy of Russia. Of course, Fox News and OANN repeated all his claims. And whatever became of that laptop he claimed belonged to Hunter?

The report states the Russians built upon their interference in the 2016 election to help Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton, but this time it was less technical and relied more on getting information into the national conversation and letting it go from there. They just wound Rudy up and let him prattle down the street.

The Russians realized they didn’t have to spend millions of rubles, or even thousands, on social media propaganda campaigns when they had the likes the Rudy Colludy, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity. On top of all that, they also had Donald Trump. He also had the entire Republican Party. I bet Putin loves the over 400 bills in 43 states right now designed to disenfranchise voters.

And even if Russia lost their bet on Trump, which they did, they still had the bonus of poisoning our nation with lies and division. All the Republican efforts to change voting laws are based on lies of a stolen election. By the way, the last time there was enough fraud to change an election and there was a do-over, it was all for a Republican (North Carolina in 2018, fuckers).

The report also says Iran meddled, but in a very sloppy way when they sent emails purportedly from the violent right-wing hate group the Proud Boys to Democratic voters threatening them if they didn’t vote for Trump. Iran messed up pretending to be Proud Boys because illiterate people can’t write emails.

There is also mention of some small influence campaigns from Hezbollah against Trump, Cuba to Cuban Americans in Florida that was anti-Republican, and Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro wanted to get involved after Trump supported a coup against him, but didn’t have the means. As for China, who Trump’s Attorney General William Barr and John Ratcliffe, Trump’s last director of National Intelligence, said was the greatest threat to our election, and not Russia…they didn’t do anything.

China considered an influence campaign but then chose not to get involved. If China really wanted Biden to win, then it was probably smart not to meddle and have it backfire because the man he was running against was the worst president (sic) in American history. You really shouldn’t need any foreign help to defeat a man who tanked the economy and did nothing but spread lies while a virus killed hundreds of thousands of Americans.

The report states, “The Chinese government likely sought stability in its relationship with the United States and did not prefer either Biden or Trump enough to risk the potential blowback of more direct interference.”

One difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats don’t want any help from foreign governments to win elections. They don’t want that stench. Republicans invite it…literally. “Russia, if you’re listening.” Donald Trump was impeached asking Ukraine to meddle. He stood in the White House driveway and asked China for help.

There weren’t any efforts to change ballots. Instead, Russia used useful idiots like Rudy Giuliani.

Of course Russia wanted Donald Trump to win the election. During the Helsinki Summit, Trump threw our national intelligence agencies under the bus to take Putin’s word he didn’t interfere in the 2016 election. Putin gave Trump a soccer ball in exchange for his balls. Trump had his translator’s notes destroyed from his one-on-one meeting with Putin.

Why would Russia prefer Trump over Biden? When told by Bill O’Reilly that Russia murdered journalists and Vladimir Putin was a killer, Trump said, “So what? You think we’re so nice?” When asked about Putin this week by George Stephanopoulos, President Biden clearly laid out that Vladimir Putin is a killer. Biden explicitly accused Putin of being a “killer.” Whom would you rather have negotiations with, the guy who calls you a “killer” or the one who kills at kissing your ass?

After the election, Rudy pushed lies over the election being stolen by George Soros, the Clintons, and by voting machines engineered by the deceased Hugo Chavez. Maybe next time, Russia should find a useful idiot who’s less of an idiot. Maybe a less drippy idiot. Maybe a less farty idiot.

If you want to find the collusion and corruption with Russia, follow the lies. Follow the drippy hair dye. Follow the farts. Follow the sleaze. It all leads back to Rudy. Can Rudy take his Razzie with him to prison?

Attacking America


cjones12222020

There is concern during every presidential transition that our enemies may take advantage or test us. The objectives may be to advance an agenda against us while no one is paying much attention, to test the incoming administration to see how much they can get away with, or an excellent opportunity to grab some shit, like intel in a data hack…or Ukraine.

All our intelligence agencies agree Russia is the culprit behind a huge hack into American government and industry. Experts say this is the greatest cybersecurity breach in our nation’s history and yet, our government didn’t catch it. It was caught by a private firm when their system was hacked. To understand the extent of the attack, government agencies aren’t approaching our national security establishment, but instead, they’re going to Microsoft.

Microsoft is the same company that couldn’t get my address correct, so instead of delivering my $2,000 Surface Pro to me (under warranty), they dropped it off on the doorstep of a stabby-looking guy with a face tattoo. Good luck working with Microsoft.

This has been an excellent time for Russia to attack our infrastructure and computer system. Usually during transitions, all the experts are polishing up their resumes…in the case of Trump appointees, adding a lot of bullshit. So they’re preoccupied on their upcoming unemployment and won’t pay much attention to a cyber attack. Attack on our cybersecurity? Whatever. Is the ability to use chop sticks a job skill?

But in addition to Trump appointees not doing much about the Russia hack, the president (sic) only got around to mentioning it yesterday…naturally, in a tweet.

Since the election, Donald Trump hasn’t talked about anything except the election. He’s only left the White House to play golf and conduct one hate rally in Georgia. We’re losing about 3,000 people a day to the coronavirus and he hasn’t said anything about that. The only thing he’s said about the vaccine is that he doesn’t want Joe Biden to get credit for it (from the guy who took credit for Obama’s economy). And, he’s atually messing up the distribution of the vaccine. But when it comes to Russia, Trump has always deflected.

Trump mocks people concerned about Russia and treats them like Jan Brady and says, “Russia, Russia, Russia.” Donald Trump ignored their meddling in the 2016 election. He voluntarily gave them national security secrets in the Oval Office. He’s had aides destroy notes taken during his one-on-one meetings with Putin. He adopted Putin’s bullshit reasoning for Russia’s invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, claiming it was to stop terrorism. He took Vladimir Putin’s word over American national security agencies over Russia’s meddling. He ignored reports that Putin was paying bounties for dead U.S. soldiers.

So after a week of reports that Putin is hacking into our security system, what did Trump have to say about it? He tweeted that everything is “under control.” The media is “exaggerating it.” He said, “Russia, Russia, Russia.” He blamed China and said the real concern was if they hacked into the Dominion voting machines.

So basically, the United States is being attacked and Donald Trump is using it for more conspiracy theories about the election?

Of course Donald Trump isn’t going to defend America. As we’ve seen over the past four years, Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump. How can anyone expect Donald Trump to defend America from Russia when he’s attacking America? Look what he’s done to the post office and our election. Donald Trump is helping Putin destroy the United States.

Donald Trump doesn’t defend America. He defends himself, convicts, pedophiles, and Putin.

Over the past week, convicted felon and Trump-pardoned goon General Michael Flynn floated the idea of enacting martial law and using the military to overturn the election. Here’s my conspiracy theory: Flynn is floating this idea because it came from the White House.

Lawyer Sidney Powell was on Rudy Giuliani’s legal team losing court case after case. She floated several ridiculous conspiracy theories to the point that she was removed from the legal team and the Trump Campaign lied and said they never had any association with her…despite her speaking and standing next to Rudy at his idiotic press conferences. Fortunately for Sidney, she was removed from Rudy’s side before the farts came.

It was her lie that the deceased Hugo Chavez and Venezuela corrupted Dominion voting machines that had her removed from the Trump team. So…since she was removed, why was she in an Oval Office meeting Friday? Sidney Powell being in the White House is almost as surprising as Georgia governor Brian Kemp being there for a Christmas party after Trump called for him to be imprisoned. Hope Kemp got to ask Santa for a spine.

Sidney Powell was never removed from the Trump legal team. She was just pushed aside out of the view of cameras. Like Flynn, she’s floating ideas before Trump endorses them. According to reports, Donald Trump is giving up on the Justice Department appointing a special counsel to investigate election fraud that didn’t happen…in favor of appointing his own special counsel from the White House. That’s not even a thing.

Donald Trump has no authority to appoint a special counsel…just like he doesn’t have authority to enact martial law to overturn an election, or to use the military in martial law. What Donald Trump does have the authority to do is grant a security clearance to any unqualified fucknut he deems necessary to help him act out his corruption, like Jared and Ivanka. Now, he wants to give a security clearance to Sidney Powell and appoint her as the special counsel to investigate the election. Maybe when she’s done, she can help OJ find the real killers.

The election has been called. Every state has certified the results. There was no mass voter fraud. We had an election upon the Constitution’s legal guidelines. We had the states certify per the Constitution’s guidelines. We had the electoral college meet per the Constitution’s guidelines. Joe Biden is the president-elect and will be president on January 20, 2021. The military can’t be used to enact martial law to overturn and rerun an election, which is un-Constitutional and illegal. It’s un-American. It’s un-democratic. There is no other way to describe it other than as a coup. Donald Trump is attacking America.

Donald Trump, Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and all those other fucking Republicans supporting his election fraud scam are conducting sedition and trying to turn this nation into a fascist state.

And even though the military has spoken out against being used in martial law, how do we know those generals won’t be removed and replaced by the likes of Michael Flynn? How do we know Donald Trump isn’t talking about that?

Protect us from Russia? Yes, we need to be protected from Russia but we also need to be protected from Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

Quite frankly, I won’t breathe easy until after January 20, 2021, when Joe Biden is in the Oval Office and Trump is toilet-tweeting from Mar-a-Lago.
