CPAC Cult


cjones03032021

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Donald Trump Jr told the cult that maybe the organization should now be called “TPAC.” In case you’re slower than Donald Trump Jr, the “T” is for Trump. The should keep it as “CPAC,” but with the first “C” standing for “Cult.”

The Republican Party isn’t about conservatism anymore. It’s not about policy. It’s not even about Republicans. It’s about Donald Trump. His entire strategy to retake the White House is to run on his grievances because it’s all about him. The only policy is subservience to Donald Trump. This is not a party anymore. It’s a cult. And in case you had any doubts, just take one look at the golden statue, seriously, that was wheeled into the convention. They literally brought a golden statue of Donald Trump. Some in attendance at CPAC literally bowed down before it.

Saddam Hussein had statues made of him while he was still alive. He even named Baghdad’s airport after himself. By the way, there’s a movement by the Trump cult to rename a Florida airport after Donald Trump. Typically, leaders die before statues are built in their honor. You know, leaders much greater than Donald Trump like Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Ronald McDonald.

Will Republicans soon be required to build shrines inside their homes to Donald Trump, like what’s required North Koreans for Kim Jong Un, his father, and grandfather?

This is what’s become of the GOP, the Grand Old Party. It’s a cult to Donald Trump and after four more years of this shit, worshipping a racist reality TV show host who was this nation’s worst president, who lost the popular vote twice, lost the House and Senate for his party, who continues the Big Lie of the stolen election, who instigates terrorists to attack the government in bloody coup attempts, and refuses a peaceful transfer of power to the president who defeated him in a democratic and free election, there will be nothing left of the Republican Party.

Even Mitch McConnell, who blamed Donald Trump for the attack on the Capitol and suggested he’ll be held accountable in a court of law on criminal charges, said he’ll support Donald Trump if he’s the nominee in 2024.

What’s left of the Republican Party is outrage over a stolen election that wasn’t stolen and Mr. Potato Head maybe not being Mr. anymore.

“The people at CPAC are living in an alternate reality in which facts don’t matter, the Constitution doesn’t matter. They have no principle except whatever their leader says.” Who said that? The former leader of CPAC, Mickey Edwards.

Edwards, who is also a former Oklahoma Congressman said, “The Republican Party really no longer stands for any kind of principles, conservative or otherwise. They’re no different than they are in Hungary…whatever the Great Leader says, they do.”

He also said, “The party seems now to be completely following the lead of one man wherever he goes, which is the definition of a cult. All that matters is ‘Trump is for this, we’re for this.’ And that includes denying truth, denying facts, denying reality.”

Edwards quit the Republican Party after the attack on the Capitol. Speakers at this year’s conference, appropriately being held in Florida, include Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, who helped instigate the terrorist attack. Edwards said the current leader, Matt Schlapp, doesn’t have his job because when Edwards was the head of CPAC, “it was a group that was based on conservative principles. We were strong supporters of the Constitution. We believed in free elections. We believed in democracy. These people don’t believe in any of those things.” Schlapp does not push conservative issues anymore. Instead, he has pushed Donald Trump’s bogus stolen election lie. Removing yourself from reality is now a requirement to be a member of the Republican Party.

The entire conference has been one of lie after lie followed by conspiracy theory followed by conspiracy theory. I can’t wait to hear what policies Trump focuses on during his speech later today.

Are you a still a Republican after the leader of your party has tried to undermine our constitution and encouraged terrorists to attack the government in a bloody coup attempt? Are you still a Republican after it has been co-opted by Qanon?

If you’re still a Republican, congratulations. You’re in a cult.

Conspiracy Tiger


The attack on the United States Capitol building was instigated by months of a Big Lie that Donald Trump won the election and it was stolen from him. It was largely built around right-wing terrorists who coordinated with each other how to seize the Capitol. Before the event, Donald Trump called these supporters to be in Washington, D.C. on January 6. Senators Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson, Ted Cruz, and several others helped push the Big Lie. The day of the attack, when Congress was certifying the election which is a task mandated by the United States Constitution, Josh Hawley gave the terrorists a big wave of his fist which was either a show of support or to show he wanted to whack them off. Either way, he wanted to pleasure terrorists.

Ted Cruz, along with Hawley, did all they could to slow down the certification process, using the Big Lie in doing so. Now that they told that Big Lie, they’re on to new ones…like blame Democrats for the terrorist attack.

Yesterday, in a Senate and House joint hearing on the insurrection on our government, election, and Constitution, Hawley, Johnson, and Cruz all pretended they were responsible legislators who are to be taken seriously. They are not to be taken seriously. They are ridiculous jokes that are not funny.

Testifying were former US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, former House sergeant-at-arms Paul Irving, former Senate sergeant-at-arms Michael C. Stenger, who all resigned after the attack, and Michael Contee, the acting chief of local police in Washington, D.C.

The first question was: Why didn’t you see this coming? The entire public knew it was coming. I knew enough to draw a cartoon before the attack of Josh Hawley as a terrorist. Donald Trump said it was coming. The media knew it was coming. So, why didn’t our intelligence agencies know it was coming? And let’s debunk this lie now: Neither Nancy Pelosi nor Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser turned down protection.

During the attack, why was there a delay in a response from the National Guard? We still don’t have an answer to this. It was ridiculous that the response was so slow, but we have one fact. Donald Trump didn’t rush to get the National Guard on the scene. He was too busy calling senators and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy planning how to stop the certification of the election. Another fact: This was a coup attempt. We did NOT have a peaceful transfer of power between administrations. Donald Trump still has not conceded he lost despite the fact…let me clear my throat…HE FUCKING LOST!!!

“Would you agree that this attack involved White supremacists and extremist groups?” That’s the question asked by Senator Amy Klobuchar. All four witnesses said, “Yes.” Senator Ron Johnson tried to downplay the white supremacist angle. Why, why, why the fuck why is anyone who is not a racist trying to protect white supremacists? Ron Johnson didn’t just try to protect white supremacists, he used conspiracy theories during a Congressional hearing. He claimed the Trump supporters were in a “festive” atmosphere and that there were too many of them who were fat, bloated, handicapped, old, decrepit, and just too out of shape to be involved in a terrorist attack. Plus, they’re all patriots who love Trump and their country. The attack was by people disguised as Trump supporters. In fact, the fake Trump supporters planned the entire thing. Why didn’t Ron Johnson use the “they’re too stupid to plan this” defense? That has a bit of logic to it.

Monday, Fox News’ host and Pinocchio understudy Tucker Carlson claimed on his show that white supremacists had nothing to do with the attack. I guess they were all home picking roses or something. Maybe they were praying and building churches. Tucker Carlson is a liar and he’s lying to protect racists. Why, Tucker, why? Why must Tucker be a fucker?

Ron Johnson even claimed Trump supporters would never attack the police, despite there being videos of Trump supporters attacking the police and the inconvenient fact that Trump supporters killed a few cops. Also, a cop lost an eye, another lost fingers, and the Trump supporters pooped and pee-pee’d in the halls of Congress. This is true. Trump supporters are NOT good people. Fight me.

Josh Hawley, the guy who might want to stroke off white nationalist terrorists, said that Speaker Pelosi’s choice to investigate the matter (not him masturbating terrorists, but the entire attack), Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, shouldn’t be involved in the investigation for asking if some Capitol Police officers were complicit in the attack. Hawley said, “This person has no business leading any security review related to events of January 6.” Really? Hawley has no business investigating the attack, sitting on a hearing, or even being a United States Senator. Aren’t there some white supremacist terrorists back in Missouri who need a reach-around?

Hawley, who helped an insurrection and was the first Senator to become a coup’s cheerleader, said that Honoré’s comments were “disrespectful” and “really quite shocking”.

There are 2,000 officers in the Capitol Police and most fought the terrorists, but there were a few who opened the doors and took selfies with them, which is almost as bad as Representative Lauren Boebert tweeting out leaders’ locations during the attack and a Senator wanting to jack off insurrectionists.

During the opening statements of the hearing, Ted Cruz was busy scrolling through his phone, probably searching through CancunCruz hashtags. Sorry, Ted. That shit has a longer shelf life than #BernieMittens, you treasonous constituent-abandoning poodle-neglecting sack of shit.

Ted Cruz pretending he cares about white supremacists trying to overthrow our government and disenfranchise our presidential election is about as believable as Ted Cruz being concerned about Texans, or his poodle, freezing while he was taking his daughters to Cancun. By the way, what is there for children to do in Cancun? For the record, I’m against doing body shots with nine-year-olds.

Ted Cruz was all, “Oh it was terrible…how can we make sure it never happens again?” Answer: Get rid of Senators who help incite terrorists. At this point, even Cruz’s poodle wants a new daddy.

Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, and Josh Hawley should be stripped of their committee assignments just like House Qnut Marjorie Taylor Greene. They could all use that time to fundraise for their racist PACs…or go to Cancun. Members of Congress have no business sitting on a committee asking about terrorists attacks they enabled. They should be the ones answering questions. Missouri and Texas, I’m not so sure about, but Wisconsin, I know you can do better and you get your shot next year.

As for Tiger Woods, I was really sorry to hear about his car wreck yesterday and I was worried about him. But it sounds like we have good news this morning. Tiger, stop driving fast and stop palling around with Donald Trump. Tiger allowed Donald Trump to use him for a photo-op when Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Tiger, when it comes to Trump medals, you’re in the same company as Rush Limbaugh. Not good. Karma is mean. Don’t accept medals from people who incite white supremacist terrorist attacks.

Tiger, blink twice if you’re OK. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson, blink if you’re a terrorist.

Censure Culture


cjones02182021

Republicans must think they have a free pass with hypocrisy.

During the Obama years, they complained about him issuing executive orders and claimed he was using them trying to be a monarch. They championed Donald Trump’s executive orders and added them to his list of accomplishments. President Obama issued 276 executive orders to Donald Trump’s 220. In case you are a Republican, let me remind you that President Obama served two terms and Donald Trump only one because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden. In case you’re a Republican, I should also remind you that a presidential term is four years and when you serve two terms, four times two equals eight. President Obama served eight years and Donald Trump only served four because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden.

Also, I don’t recall President Obama ever showing off his signature on executive orders the way Donald Trump did as though he had just figured out how to write his own name. And from looking at his signature, I’m not sure he ever did.

Remember when Republicans hated on Obama for playing golf? I think there were a thousand political cartoons from right-wing troglodyte cartoonists on it. How many cartoons did they draw about Donald Trump playing golf? Zero. For the sake of comparison, let’s compare. According to Golf News Net, in case you’re a Republican, is a website about golf, President Obama played 333 games. Donald Trump, according to Statista.com, in case you’re a Republican, is a website about statistics, he played golf 285 times. Wow! President Obama played more golf than Trump. Oh yeah. President Obama served two terms and Donald Trump only one because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden.

Another point on this is that when President Obama played golf, it was usually on a federal course which means it was at minimal cost to taxpayers. When Donald Trump played golf, each and every time it was at one of his resorts, which means we paid Donald Trump to play golf. His fans, cultists, love to point out that Trump donated his salary. But we paid him more than his salary to play golf. It’s estimated his golfing costs us $142 million. Most of that went directly into Donald Trump’s pocket. Which is another example of Republican hypocrisy.

They scream about the “deep state” and corruption yet ignore that Donald Trump grifted taxpayers at his resorts and hotels.

But it takes a special skill to whine about “cancel culture” while calling people “snowflakes.”

Republicans have a new term and it’s “cancel culture.” Anytime a Republican is told, “Sorry, we don’t want to hear any of your racism today,” they start screaming, “Cancel culture!”

They scream and yell that it’s censorship when they’re not allowed to express their “conservative” viewpoints on non-government platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. But I haven’t heard of any Republican being kicked off Twitter for talking about conservative issues like the flat tax, or decreasing government regulations, or stripping away the inheritance tax so trust-fund babies can finally catch a break. No. I only hear about them being kicked off for spreading conspiracy theories, racism, and organizing and promoting white nationalist terrorism.

Actress Gina Carano was fired by Lucasfilm and Disney for comparing the criticism Republicans receive to the way Jews were treated by the Nazis. Gina would have an excellent point if all the Nazis did was talk bad about about Jews.

Trump cultists used the term when Donald Trump was kicked off Twitter permanently claiming his viewpoints were being discriminated against, ignoring the fact he used the platform to help instigate a terrorist attack on the United States government.

And now, the Cancel Culture Club is engaging in cancel culture within their own ranks. Republicans are censuring Republicans for acting like Republicans.

You see, kids, once upon a time the Republican Party was a party of issues and not one that worshipped a cult of stupid racist moronic personality. Today, the party is a cult. It’s totally built around one man. One very stupid, moronic, racist man.

Senator Lindsey Graham, who once said Donald Trump would destroy the party, has proven his point by stating the future of the party is Lara Trump. Who? That’s one of them gold diggers who married a Trump spawn. Wait until the entire organization is auctioned off in legal and criminal settlements. What are Lara’s qualifications for the United States Senate? She did marry the dumbest Trump which probably still makes her smarter than Lindsey Graham.

Lindsey Graham, who once called Donald Trump a “jackass” and a “kook,” said the “MAGA movement must continue.” Really? Donald Trump was an incumbent who lost reelection and you want that “movement” to continue? I predict if the “MAGA movement” continues, it’ll only make states trending blue trend faster. Say goodbye to Georgia, Arizona, and possibly even North Carolina. Democrats will eventually get Texas in that deal.

Congressthingperson and Qanon follower, Marjorie Taylor Greene, said that the Republican Party “belongs to Donald Trump and no one else.” She said, “It’s his party.” And he can cry if he wants to.

Signs you are in a cult include not being able to recognize that you’re a hypocrite and you’re not making sense. Another sign you’re in a cult is being unable to recognize you’re in a cult. If you are a follower of Trump and believe he’s going to come back and retake the presidency, or that the election was stolen from him, congratulations. You’re in a cult.

The Republican Party, the warriors against cancel culture because they believe everybody’s speech should be free, independent, and protected, is now cancel culturing out its own people for exercising free speech and independence. How day they stray from the Church of Trump.

After Donald Trump lost the to Joe Biden, the Arizona GOP censured Cindy McCain and former Senator Jeff Flake for endorsing Biden. They also censured their own Republican governor for working to combat the coronavirus instead of engaging in fear mongering and politicization of the pandemic.

After last Saturday’s vote in the Senate Trial that saw seven Republicans vote to convict Donald Trump, those seven are now being punished by the Republican Party. How dare they try to make someone responsible for inciting a terrorist attack. How dare they leave the Church of MAGA.

In North Carolina, the Republicans have censured Senator Richard Burr for his vote. Burr said, “My party’s leadership has chosen loyalty to one man over the core principles of the Republican Party and the founders of our great nation.” The core principle of the Republican Party is now Trump, which is ironic because Donald Trump doesn’t have any principles.

The Republicans in Pennsylvania censured Senator Pat Toomey for his vote.

The Republicans in my home state of Louisiana didn’t wait long in censuring Senator Bill Cassidy. They issued their proclamation the same day at the Senate vote. Cassidy replied, “Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty.”

Republicans in Utah are passing a petition around that states Senator Mitt Romney, “appears to be an agent for the Establishment Deep State” and “misrepresented himself as a Republican” during his 2018 campaign. Even the state party realizes that is nuts and they’re backing off a censure, but still…a lot of GOP cultists in Utah are pissed…and not just because they have to live in Utah.

Republicans in Maine have told their members “to be prepared for an emergency state committee meeting in the near future” over Senator Susan Collins’ vote to convict Trump.

And in Nebraska, Senator Ben Sasse has basically said to “Bring it on.” Sasse said, “You are welcome to censure me.” He then told them, “But let’s be clear about why this is happening. It’s because I still believe, as you used to, that politics isn’t about the weird worship of one dude.”

In Alaska, Senator Lisa Murkowski’s vote to convict may lure a challenge from…wait for it…Sarah Palin. And if you are a liberal political cartoonist, you’re thinking right now, “Oh please, God…make this happen and I’ll never eat pork again.” Gods against eating pork, right? I don’t know. How about tentacles? If Sarah Palin runs for the Senate, I’ll never eat tentacles again! You have my word.

Illinois Congressman, Republican Adam Kinzinger, has been shunned by eleven members of his own family which I can relate to. They wrote a certified letter to his father stating the congressman was a “disappointment” to them and “to God.” They were upset over his “horrible, rude accusations” to “president (sic) Trump.” The part that reeks of similarities to my sisters said, “It is now most embarrassing to us that we are related to you.” Then, they accused him of being in the “Devils Army.’

Do you know how to tell when you’re in a cult? When you accuse others of being in the “Devils Army.”

Each of these Republicans put their career at risk in opposing Trump. Kinzinger has been at odds with Trump since 2015, even receiving a message from Donald that he should go “fuck himself,” which makes me jealous. I wish I had a “go fuck yourself” from a Trump. But the party should appreciate and value members who are this brave. Instead, the party caves into fear and cult worship.

Do you know how to tell if you’re a cult? It’s when you seek to destroy those who disagree with your leader, the Dear Leader in this case. The Republican Party is behaving like the Workers’ Party of Korea.

Cassidy says our nation and Constitution are more important than just one person. Sasse says the party shouldn’t be “weird worship of one dude.” But Republicans are saying no.

The Republican Party, the party that was once the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Ike, and Reagan, has put the weird worship of one dude before the Constitution and country. If you don’t believe me, look at what happened January 6. That was all for one weird dude.

The party of Trump that canceled Colin Kaepernick because of his opinions is now eating its own, ignoring its inconsistency. But canceling someone for his/her opinion is much different than canceling someone because s/he is racist or spreading dangerous bullshit. They also fail to see that being removed from non-government platforms and outlets is NOT censorship.

If you’re an asshole and I don’t want you in my house, that’s not cancel culture or censorship. That’s me not wanting an asshole in my house.

I have an assignment for Trump cultists who may be reading today’s blog. Read the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. After you read it, report back here in the comments section and explain how it applies to Twitter banning Donald Trump. Tell me how it applies to Disney firing Gina Carano.

There is a huge difference in all these “cancellations.” Gina Carano was fired for saying stupid insensitive shit, comparing being criticized to the Holocaust. Donald Trump was banned for starting riots. Cartoonist Ben Garrison was kicked off Twitter for sharing debunked racist conspiracy theories. Republicans are canceling Republicans for trying to make someone accountable for his actions. These Republicans are being censured, which is a punishment without any consequence, for not being sufficiently sycophantic.

It’s not cancel culture. It’s consequence culture. And Republicans don’t want any Republicans to face consequences for racism, conspiracy theories, or aiding and abetting terrorists.

And if the Republican Party is just going to be a cult to the “weird worship of one dude,” we need to cancel Republican culture.

False Flag Operation


cjones01302021

The Oregon Republican Party isn’t just saying “so what” about Donald Trump’s little violent insurrection party at the U.S. Capitol three weeks ago. The state GOP has officially latched onto a conspiracy theory that it was a “false flag operation.”

The party issued a resolution stating, “The violence at the Capitol was a ‘false flag’ operation designed to discredit President Trump, his supporters, and all conservative Republicans; this provided the sham motivation to impeach President Trump in order to advance the Democratic goal of seizing total power.” They’re basing this on a conspiracy website and The Epoch Times, a pro-Trump publication that’s just a prettier Daily Stormer.

Since the insurrection, over 100 of the terrorists have been arrested and they’ve all been documented as strong Trump supporters. So, if you accept the Oregon GOP’s “logic” (those are air quotes), then Trump supporters wanted to make Trump and his supporters look bad. To be fair, Trump supporters often make themselves look bad.

And the fucknuts aren’t just limited to Oregon. State party leaders across the nation are going after fellow Republicans who aren’t Trumpy enough. While the Trump cult cries about censorship and “cancel culture,” they’re eating their own for the sin of free thinking.

In Arizona, the party censured Governor Doug Ducey for defying Trump and taking the coronavirus seriously, and for not stealing the state’s electoral college votes for Dear Leader. They also censured former senator Jeff Flake and John McCain’s widow, Cindy McCain, for endorsing Joe Biden. The censure is a powerful thing but still, how dare they not goosestep along with the beat?

The chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party issued a statement condemning Congressman Tim Rice for voting to impeach Donald Trump.

The Oregon GOP resolution also condemns the ten Republicans who voted to impeach Trump stating, “The ten Republican House members, by voting to impeach Trump, repeated history by conspiring to surrender our nation to Leftist forces seeking to establish dictatorship void of all cherished freedoms and liberties.”

Certifying the winner of a presidential election, as the Constitution demands, is establishing a dictatorship? Now I know why the Oregon GOP is not taken seriously in Oregon…except you know, when they hold the door open for terrorists.

Before MAGA terrorists attacked the U.S. Capitol, they attacked the Oregon state house. One of the Republicans voting for their “false flag” resolution is chief of staff for a state representative caught on camera holding a door open for the mob.

In Hawaii, the vice chair of communications of the state Republican Party had to resign after tweeting support for Qanon, the conspiracy theory troglodytes that enable terrorists. He actually sent multiple tweets, with one saying, “We should make it abundantly clear — the people who subscribed to the Q fiction, were largely motivated by a sincere and deep love for America. Patriotism and love of County should never be ridiculed.” He also tweeted that Qanon followers are “patriots.”

Personally, I think people who believe in deep state lizard people who are Satanic-worshipping pedophiles should always be ridiculed. New Congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor Green, a follower of Qanon who liked Facebook posts about killing Nancy Pelosi, should require constant ridiculing. Ridiculing ridiculous people helps make them less dangerous. She liked those posts about executing Democrats. She didn’t give them the frowny-face emoji.

Social media accounts connected to Qanon helped coordinate the terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol which resulted in the deaths of five people, including a Capitol Police officer. Qanon has been labeled a terrorist threat by the FBI. Republicans supporting Qanon may as well be tweeting support to al-Qaida and ISIS. We have supporters of terrorists in the United States Congress.

Back at the U.S. Capitol building, in the very same chamber they had to flee because MAGA terrorists were invading, 45 Republican senators voted yesterday that impeaching Donald Trump was unconstitutional. Forget they were standing where it happened. Forget they saw it happen. Forget that the mob was out to kill them. When it comes to choosing America or their cult leader, the Republican Party chooses the cult.

Only five Republican senators voted that the impeachment was constitutional. Do you know what’s unconstitutional? Overturning an election because you don’t like the outcome. It’s unconstitutional to give the presidency to the guy who came in second in electoral votes. It’s unconstitutional to hand the presidency to a fascist dictator. It’s unconstitutional to attempt a bloody coup.

Mitch McConnell, MINORITY Leader (that looks nice in print), voted against the trial…stating it’s unconstitutional to try a former president AFTER he delayed the trial until Donald Trump…wait for it…became a former president (sic). This is the same kind of fucking logic McTortoise Face used in stealing two Supreme Court seats.

Senator Lindsey Graham gave a speech in that same chamber the night of the insurrection saying he couldn’t support Trump anymore. He said, “All I can say is count me out. Enough is enough… We’ve got to end it.” A week later, he was flying on Air Force One again. Graham voted that the Senate trial was unconstitutional. Even Riff Raff bailed on Frank-N-Furter eventually.

Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley also voted that the trial would be unconstitutional…after supporting an unconstitutional coup attempt. We’re allowing the terrorists to vote on whether a terrorist should be convicted or not.

Marco Rubio voted the same way and along with former Trump U.N. Ambassador, Nikki Haley, cried that the trial would be divisive. You know what’s divisive? Coup attempts, terrorists attacks, overturning elections, MAGA mobs of fucknuts, etc. Nikki cried that we need to “give the man a break,” casting Trump as a victim in all this. She whined that people have been going after him since before he was elected. She forgets, she was one of them before she became a Trumper. In fact, it was in her state, and at a rally she coordinated, where Marco Rubio made fun of Trump’s little penis. She laughed along. She didn’t say, “Give the man a break” when Marco was talking about Donald’s dinky dick.

There’s been talk about a huge divide in the Republican Party over choosing America or Donald Trump. There’s been speculation that the party wants to move on and distance itself from Mango Mussolino, Hair Gropenfuhrer, the Orange-Flavored Shitgibbon, Mr. I’d-Date-My-Daughter-If-She-Wasn’t-My-Daughter-MMM-MMM-MMM. But it appears that while thousands of Republicans have become former Republicans since Cheeto’s terror attack, elected Republicans and party officials are sticking with Donald Trump. They’re choosing cult over policy and an orange racist personality over country.

But people are leaving the GOP in higher numbers than usual after an election. In North Carolina, 6,000 Republicans have bailed on the party. In Arizona, 7,5000 left. Thousands have also left in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. Polls show that a majority of Republicans want to move on from Trump…but it’s the terrorists the party is listening to.

Naturally, everything Republicans claim they support is something they’ll easily discard for Trump, like patriotism, family values, and washing their hands. Now, the same gang who got upset over kneeling during the national anthem, who want a Constitutional amendment protecting the American flag, are ditching the American flag for the MAGA flag.

In refusing to punish a president (sic) who instigated a terrorist attack against our nation, who tried to overturn an election, who tried to steal power for himself, the Republican Party has put cult of personality over the nation. The GOP has abandoned all principle and integrity. Donald Trump doesn’t need to create a new party because he already has. The Republican Party isn’t even conservative anymore. It’s just a cult. Instead of punishing terrorists, they’re now holding the door open for them.

The Republican Party is raising the MAGA flag and seeing who salutes.

Resume The Position


cjones01272021

The Republican Party sold its soul for Donald Trump. Positions? What positions? In service to their orange messiah, the GOP vanquished all their previous positions. The party is more of a cult than a party. Now, they’re trying to figure out if they’re a party in pursuit of positions again or if they still need to bow down before the Trump base.

The one positive for the GOP is that Donald Trump is off Twitter. Can you imagine the tweet storm we would have had the pleasure of experiencing if he was still on the platform? I feel sorry for the poor caddy he’s probably barking at right about now over President Joe Biden erasing his “legacy” of hate and stupidity.

If Donald Trump forms his own party with the hypocritical name, “Patriot Party,” that doesn’t allow the GOP to be a party of issues again. They will be reminded of all they gave away to Trump and his base. Just because they don’t like you anymore doesn’t mean you can pretend you always cared about deficits or family values.

But the Republican will now try to criticize stuff they allowed Donald Trump to get away with. It’s like when President Obama was playing golf during his two terms (because unlike Trump, he got two). The Republicans were aghast at how much he played. Even Donald Trump attacked President Obama over his golfing. As soon as the Trump regime began, Trump started playing golf and the GOP forgot their indignation over a president (SIC!) playing golf. Donald Trump spent more time on the golf course, his own by the way, than any president ever ever ever ever ever. You know, I’m starting to think that maybe it wasn’t the golf.

In the process of playing golf, Donald Trump bilked the government for services at his golf resorts. He even charged the government for his own lodgings at his own resorts. He charged the Secret Service for nights they weren’t there. He charged the Secret Service for golf cart rentals. Donald Trump literally charged the Secret Service to protect him. He’s still doing that, by the way. Donald Trump is corrupt.

During his presidency, he collected money from foreign dignitaries staying at his hotels and resorts. Republicans spent money at his resorts and hotels to curry his favor. Attorney General and apparently party animal William Barr rented out Trump’s ballroom to throw a party during a pandemic. One cabinet official even tried to purchase a mattress from the Washington Trump Hotel. Trump tried to get an international summit at one of his shitty golf resorts. An ambassador tried to get a major golf tournament at one of his Scottish resorts. This is major corruption.

Donald Trump treated the presidency like an ATM machine.

Then, he tried to steal the election by extorting a foreign leader to go after his political opponent. Before that, he asked Russia to help him…and they did. This was corruption.

Now, when the GOP talks about corruption, don’t let the hypocrites get away with it.

The Republicans make a big deal about government spending. They’re very loud on the issue…but only when a Democrat has the White House. They were silent during the Bush years…and then the next set of Bush years. Bill Clinton took away their right to control the issue because he left a surplus. The GOP couldn’t have a good bitch fest over the deficit for 28 years, from Reagan in 1980 to 2009, when President Obama took over. Immediately, they went after President Obama for the deficit George W. Bush created. After President Obama left the White House, after winning election TWICE, the Republicans gave credit for his booming economy to Donald Trump, who was very successful at inheriting stuff other people built and at being an old white rich dude.

During the Trump years, Republicans wasted billions on a stupid useless racist wall they said Mexico would pay for, watched Trump spend millions on vacations, watched the Secret Service spend millions protecting his dumbass trust-fund baby children, and gave huge tax cuts to corporations and asshole billionaires like Donald Trump and his dumbass trust-fund baby children.

So now when they start talking about government spending and deficits again, don’t let them get away with it.

The Trump regime established the 1776 Commission, which is a whitewashing of American history that caters to the white privilege, OK, racist perspective. Now, they’re upset Joe Biden is getting rid of it, or at least off the White House website. During his inaugural address, Biden criticized white supremacy. Senator Rand Paul went off, claiming that Biden called Republicans white supremacists. He did not but we can all thank Senator Paul for outing himself…not that we didn’t already know it.

Now, they’re calling for unity with brainwashed conspiracy theorists cultists and white nationalists. After four years of Trump racism and after staging a bloody failed coup attempt against our government, I don’t want to hear these assholes complaining that their white privilege is being denied.

Last week, people who consider describe themselves as Antifa attacked the Democratic Party headquarters in Portland, Oregon. They set a few dumpsters on fire. The Republicans tried to equate it to the white nationalists Trump mob attack on the Capitol, while leaving out the part about the target being the DNC. The most amusing thing out of this was that after four years, the GOP was finally critical of dumpster fires. Damn, I should have my own talk show.

Also, when these Republican goons demand transparency from the Biden administration, ask them why Donald Trump made a secret run to Walter Reed BEFORE he caught the coronavirus?

When they go after Joe Biden for his executive orders, like they did with President Obama, remind them of Donald Trump’s executive orders.

Remind Republicans they’re hypocrites. They sacrificed a lot for Donald Trump and maybe the biggest thing they gave away was their right to gripe about anything. They spent four years ignoring an assault on our nation so I don’t want to hear them pretend they care now.

Joe Biden can get caught with 20 prostitutes and as long as he doesn’t tell over 30,000 lies, should be free from Republican criticism.

Cult Or Country?


cjones12302020

For years, decades even, Republicans were lying to us. They told us they were “fiscal” conservatives. They said they were for family values. They ran on religion as if the other party consisted entirely of heathens and atheists. They wrapped themselves in the flag and said they were more more patriotic than Democrats. And they told us they support our troops.

We’ve always known they were lying about the fiscal thing. The last time there was a balanced budget under a Republican was during the Eisenhower administration. Republicans spend more than Democrats. The debt increases more under Republicans. Republicans give permanent tax cuts to billionaire assholes and corporations. They finance wars with tax cuts to billionaires. And the only time you hear Republicans talk about controlling spending is when Democrats have the White House. But it took Donald Trump for Republicans to reveal all their other positions were lies. Funny thing is, they’re still telling them.

The party that went after Bill Clinton over his lack of family values and for having multiple affairs turned around and backed Mr. Grab-Them-By-The-Pussy. They supported a man who boasted about cheating on his wife and assaulting women…while he had a newborn child at home. They supported the guy who boasted about barging in on naked teenage girls. The supported the guy who divorced twice, cheated on all three of his wives, and has five children with three different women. They supported the guy who has nearly 30 accusations ranging from assault to rape. They supported the guy who looked at a child and said, “I’ll be dating her in a few years.” They supported the guy who talks about dating his daughter and grades her figure. Republicans lied about being the party of family values. If anything, they’re the party of icky creepy fuckers.

Even before Donald Trump showed up grabbing pussies, Republicans made a pedophile the Speaker of the House. A pedophile. In case you’re a Republican, a pedophile is…wait. If you’re a Republican, you already know what a pedophile is.

Republicans lied about religion and their love of Jesus and God. They literally turned their entire party into a cult worshipping a reality TV show host. Anyone who opposes Trump is cast out as a sinner and blasphemer. The religious right and evangelical base proved what a bunch of wormy hypocrites they are when they started supporting the guy who ogles little girls and throws babies into cages. Jesus wouldn’t do that.

They lied about being patriotic. They voted for the guy endorsed and supported by Vladimir Putin. Here’s a voting primer: Don’t vote for the guy supported by Russia. It’s as easy as that. Republicans were silent when Donald Trump gave away classified information to Russians in the Oval Office. They were silent over his taking Putin’s word over our intelligence agencies. They remained silent over Russia tampering in our elections to help Trump. They have yet to criticize Trump for allowing Russia to hack into our nation’s computer system or for Trump downplaying Russia’s involvement. They’ve allowed Donald Trump to shove allies aside and embrace Russia. The party that tells us Democrats are communists ignores Donald Trump saying he fell in love with a communist (In case you’re a Republican, that’s Kim Jong Un).

Now, they have to choose between Donald Trump and the military. Just like you can’t be a patriot and a MAGAt, you can’t be a Trump supporter and a supporter of our military.

Look at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. He voted for the defense spending bill which includes pay raises for our troops. Donald Trump vetoed the bill over removing names of Confederate generals from military bases and something that wasn’t even in the bill. Yesterday, the House voted to override Trump’s veto. McCarthy, who voted for the defense bill, turned around and opposed it (he missed the vote). If he’s wearing a neck brace today, it’s because he has whiplash. How many other Republicans will need neck braces?

The bill is for spending $740 billion on our defense…for one year. We spend more on our defense than the next ten countries…combined. While Donald Trump has boasted about “rebuilding the military,” we’ve been increasing the defense budget yearly long before Donald Trump even heard that “I’m Just a Bill” song. But now, the guy who claims he rebuilt our military and loves our troops has vetoed the bill. Why?

First off, he vetoed it because it doesn’t include a repeal of Section 230, a law that shields internet companies from being liable for what is posted on their websites by third parties. In case you’re a Republican, I’ll explain that.

If I go on Twitter and create a post claiming Donald Trump barges in on naked teenage girls so he can ogle them and he wants to date his daughter, he can’t sue Twitter. Why? Because it’s true. But, say you own Twitter and some idiot makes a post claiming George Soros is funding migrant caravans, and it’s a lie. Section 230 protects you from being sued by George Soros because some anti-Semitic orange idiot made a libelous post on your platform. What does any of this have to do with our defense budget and military? Absolutely nothing. But this is the logic of the world’s greatest negotiator. We don’t understand it because we’re not as smart as Trump. Surely, it has to be a genius move. What Trump did with his veto was put himself before the military because the entire social media thing is only about him.

There were other complaints with the bill, such as limits to how much money Trump can move from the military to his useless racist border wall (it should be zero), and that Confederate naming thing. That’s another point against being patriotic. Just how patriotic are you when you’re fighting to retain traitors’ names on U.S. bases?

There was also a measure requiring the Pentagon to submit reports certifying that the proposed troop withdrawals from other nations, like Afghanistan and South Korea, would not jeopardize U.S. national security. Donald Trump didn’t like that.

The House voted 322-87 on Monday to override the veto, well above the two-thirds needed to override. It now goes to the Senate which also needs two-thirds to override. The question is: How many Republicans who were initially for it will now be against it? How about those two Republicans senators from Georgia? Yikes for them. Where do they stand on orange billionaires ogling naked teenagers?

In the House, 109 Republicans voted to override Donald Trump’s veto while 66 voted to support Donald Trump. There are 66 House Republicans who chose Donald Trump over our military. I don’t know how many of those 66 voted for the bill the first time, but I’m working on it and will report back when I have the number. But the bill was unchanged. There was nothing different about it except that Donald Trump vetoed it.

This was the first override of a Trump veto. It’s an excellent way for him to end his presidency (sic). Even with goons like Kevin McCarthy remaining, his control over the party is slipping. Still, he may lash out at those who voted for the override. Mean-tweeting 109 individual Republicans would require a lengthy session for toilet-tweeting, but I believe Donald Trump can do it. You go, you.

Now, we get to find out how many Republican senators will choose Trump over our military. You can’t support our military and Trump. You can’t be a patriot and a Trump supporter. You can’t be pro-democracy and pro-Trump.

You can’t be a loyal American and a Trump supporter.

Trumplican Brains


cjones12152020

Which is worse? A zombie apocalypse or a Trump apocalypse? What if 70 million of us turned into zombies but the rest of us, the smart ones, were OK? That’s kinda what we have now except they’re not biting us…yet.

Over the weekend, there were several protests against democracy in cities as pro-Trump goons took to the streets in a national display of bellyaching and whining. That’s what these protests are, against democracy. The fact is, Joe Biden won the election. What these protesters want is overturn an election and give the office to the loser. Just in case you are a Republican, that’s NOT how democracy works. And while pro-Trump goons may not be biting us, violence broke out in several cities during these “protests.” Michigan’s capitol building is closed today because of pro-Trump goons. There have been a lot of problems with Trump goons in Michigan…where Biden won.

And, if you think Donald Trump won the election, you’re either stupid or just so dishonest that you would rather rely on fucknut sources, like Donald Trump, Qanon or shit you read on Parler, than actual news sources. Either way, you’re failing. The information is out there but you’re refusing to absorb it…which is a fault shared by many Republicans who hold elected office.

Republicans aren’t just stupid. They’re fucknuttery stupid. Don’t be like them. You may think, I’m good. I know Biden won…but I’m afraid of the coronavirus vaccine. Don’t be and don’t veer off into Conspiracy Crazy Land.

I think it’s fair to question the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine. It’s fair to point out that it was rushed and developed in a much shorter time than other vaccines, like the flu, which took about a decade to develop. There have been questions as to why the flu vaccine has about a 50% effectiveness when it’s been around since the 1940s, but testing is showing the vaccine to the coronavirus has about 95% efficacy.

First off, the flu keeps changing so the vaccine is also changed. What they’re shooting in arms today isn’t the same stuff they were using in 1945. Second, there is a 95% efficacy rate for the coronavirus vaccine, but that does not mean only 5 out of 100 who take it will catch the virus…or the vaccine won’t work on them.

Don’t be confused by “effectiveness” and “efficacy.” When you hear someone say the flu only has a 50% effectiveness rate, that’s not the same as “efficacy.” The difference is, “efficacy” is just a measurement made during a clinical trial. “Effectiveness” is how well the vaccine works out in the real world. We don’t know the effectiveness rate for the coronavirus vaccine. So, when people are questioning it, they don’t have the results to question yet.

How the coronavirus vaccine works depends on a lot of factors. One being on how many people take the vaccine. While Republicans talk about “herd immunity” by 70% of the population catching the virus with a lot of us dying from it, the best way to achieve herd immunity is if 70% of the population takes the vaccine. While the entire population won’t take it, hopefully enough do to cease the spread of the virus and eventually stop it. That’s the hope.

It’s reasonable to be cautious and to seek out all the information you can get about the vaccine. Do that. Don’t just take my word for it. Don’t trust my reporting on science. I’m just a cartoonist and I did poorly at science in high school. Read! But, don’t be a fucknut like Ben Garrison. Who?

Ben Garrison is a racist, anti-Semitic conspiracy-believing lunatic who is a propagandist masquerading as a political cartoonist. The guy was invited to Trump’s White House for a bullshit summit on the media, which was a racist wet dream come true for Garrison. Then…his world came crashing down as the White House, racist Donald Trump’s White House where Stephen Miller works and that once employed Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, disinvited him because of his anti-Semitism. Then, he sued the Anti-Defamation League for labeling one of his cartoons anti-Semitic (no word on how that’s working out yet). And his defense that he’s not anti-Semitic is his claim that…wait for it…Jews are taking over the world. Last week, he did a cartoon with an Asian where he used the term, “Me love you long time.” Him racist long time. But he also drew a cartoon where among the 2,000 labels in it (he uses a lot of labels because he sucks), he claimed the vaccine to the coronavirus will give you cancer, sterilize you, give your kids autism, kill you, make you gay, and plant a tracking device inside of you.

OK. I made up the part about making you gay. If it turns you gay, you’ll be fine. If it turns you into a Trumper, I’m so sorry.

But seriously, this is insanity…and Garrison has over 230,000 followers on Twitter who are just as insane (to be fair, a lot of those followers may be people laughing at him for the wrong reasons). I have a little over 9,000 and I’m a real boy….I mean cartoonist. You can have concerns about the virus while not believing it’ll plant a chip inside you. The most absurd thing is, these people believing in the tracking device probably all have cell phones which do track you. Or at the very least, they’re complaining about tracking devices on social media. If you’re on Twitter, you made tracking easy.

There is a chance the vaccine will hurt you. You may have an adverse reaction if you have an allergy. It may make you sick. It may kill you. Those odds are very low and are about the same as any other vaccination. Do you know what has higher odds of killing you than the vaccine to the coronavirus? The coronavirus.

I may have the antibodies in me already, but I don’t know how long they will last. Science doesn’t know how long they’ll last. I will take the vaccine if it comes my way…which will probably be a while.

There is another way of knowing the vaccine is safe. If Dr. Anthony Fauci says it’s safe, take the damn vaccine. And if fucknuts are screaming it’ll plant a tracking device inside you, then you know it’s safe. Take the damn vaccine. It’s like facemasks and social distancing. The more who do it, the safer all of us will be. Take the damn vaccine.

After the election and Joe Biden’s administration is in charge of distributing the vaccine, I expect Donald Trump to tell you it’s not safe and he’ll retweet Nazis spreading conspiracy theories about it. Then, you will know it’s safe.

Take the damn vaccine.

Republican Babies


cjones12122020

How many more times will I be able to draw Trump Baby before the real Trump Baby leaves the White House…or his coup succeeds and I end up in a North Dakota gulag? Why North Dakota? Because it’s already a gulag.

106 House Republicans have signed onto a brief supporting the stupid and ridiculous lawsuit filed by Texas, demanding the Supreme Court invalidate the votes of over 20 million people and hand the presidency to Donald Trump. That’s more than the half the Republicans in Congress.

When representatives are sworn into Congress, they take an oath promising to protect the Constitution. So, how did we elect so many representatives so eager to break that oath?

When at least 18 state attorneys general across the nation and over 100 House Republicans demand that over 20 million votes be invalidated, that 20 million voters’ Constitutional rights be stripped from them, that 62 electoral votes be taken from one candidate and given to theirs, and that the presidency be given to the losing candidate, you have to ask yourself: Do these Republicans not know the law or do they know the law but just don’t care?

Do these Republicans really love the cult more than democracy? Do they want a theocracy and dictatorship more than a republic? If this election is stolen and reversed, we’ll never have a honest election in this nation ever again. If the United States caves and elections don’t matter, what about the rest of the world? Hopefully, we’ll stop being the example. Republicans are not to be emulated in other nations.

Republicans keep saying Donald Trump has the right to pursue every legal means, but he doesn’t have the right to call Republican governors and threaten them to reverse an election. He doesn’t have the right to call legislators to the White House to pressure them to reverse an election. He doesn’t have the right to call legislators and demand they throw out an election. Donald Trump does not have the right to steal an election. Donald Trump and Republicans don’t have a right to engage in election tampering.

Republicans spent the past four years saying, “Elections have consequences.” What they meant was, only when we win.

Every single Republican who is trying to steal this election should be prosecuted for election tampering. And I’m sure they’ll be fine with that since they claim to the law -and-order party.

Republicans are not the party of law and order. They’re not the party of family values. They’re not the party of patriots or even honest individuals. They’re the party of bullies, racists, sexists, and fascists. The GOP is now officially a cult.

The funny thing is, the way Republicans have propped up the Trump will burn them because none of them will ever be their party’s nominee. For the next 20 years, every GOP nominee will be a Trump. The GOP, the cult of Trump, has made stupid monarchs out of these grifters. Now, they get to live with them for a very long time.

Since Donald Trump is calling every politician he thinks can save his presidency, what I want to know is…how many generals has he called?
