Jr. Jeopardy


cjones05182019

James Holzhauer is on a 22-game winning streak on Jeopardy (in case you’re a Republican, that’s a game show). Holzhauer has accumulated $1.7 million in winnings and has given the game show higher ratings than, get this, The Big Bang Theory and hold on to your lugnuts, Game of Thrones. No shit.

Holzhauer owns the 10 highest single-day winnings in the show’s history, but he doesn’t own the record for most Jeopardy money…yet. That honor belongs to Ken Jennings.

James Holzhauer and Ken Jennings are smart. They have big brains. Let’s talk about someone who does not.

After being subpoenaed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Donald Trump Jr has agreed to limited questioning from the senators. Wait. How the hell did that happen? He gets a subpoena and agrees to limited questions? Have you ever been called to court and refused or negotiated your terms on testifying? Even Marisa Tomei didn’t get that deal in My Cousin Vinny. Is this a nation built to serve rich douchebags or what?

The deal is, Trumpy Jr will testify if the topics are limited to a half dozen to maybe a dozen (depending on which source you use), and he only has to stay two to four hours. He’s a busy guy who doesn’t have time for accountability. He has a shyster corporation to run, big game animals to shoot, and conspiracy theories and Nazis to retweet.

Trump Jr. refused to be questioned by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. For some reason, Mueller didn’t subpoena him. He testified once before the Senate in a private session and later agreed to return, which he reneged on.

Daddy Trump has wailed that his son is being mistreated and that he had already testified in private for hours upon hours. Yeah, that’s why he’s gotta come back. It’s that testimony that’s raised questions. The Mueller Report contains testimony from more than one witness that contradicts Jr. If you tell the cops you didn’t do something and then ten people contradict you, the cops are probably going to want to talk to you again.

Like his father, Junior has a history of lying. Before news of the Trump Tower meeting came out, he was on Fox News denying there was ever ANY contacts with Russia, and how dare anyone ask if there were.

Junior is a liar. He makes shit up. He retweets antisemitic theories on George Soros. He gives interviews to people who believe in white genocide. He compares immigrants to Skittles. He’s almost as horrible as his father. Maybe by the time he’s 72, he’ll be just as bad and have his very own failed hair transplant, and pornstars to hush.

Senators want to question Junior about the Trump Tower meeting where he was seeking dirt on Hillary Clinton from Russians, and on the secretive Trump Tower Moscow project. Daddy Trump and Junior have both claimed no Moscow deal was in progress, yet Michael Cohen claims there was, they were working on a bribe to Vladimir Putin, and Junior was briefed on the development at least ten times. I wonder if he ever replied, “I love it?”

Lindsey Graham, who once screamed that Bill Clinton and his people had to comply with congressional subpoenas and who also chairs a committee that issues them, said Junior should refuse to testify and ignore the subpoena. No cognitive dissonance there, right? Lindsey Graham has sold his soul for a bag of orange jelly beans, or are they skittles?

I understand the chairman of the committee, Richard Burr, was under intense pressure from his fellow Republicans to comply with Junior. I mean, Junior’s lawyer was threatening to send a letter. Ack! I suppose issuing contempt charges for a person being contemptible was out of the question.

This president needs oversight and that goes for his stupid children who have aided him in subverting democracy. Can someone please go to jail for breaking the law, selling out our nation to Russians, and lying to Congress?

Greg Kihn is a one-hit wonder with the song “Jeopardy” (but check out “The Breakup Song”), which Weird Al Yankovic covered with “I Lost On Jeopardy.” I’m hoping Weird Junior loses on legal jeopardy.

Creepy Flag Love


cjones03082019

A phony person will overly exert himself to prove he’s something he’s not. The biggest trait of a phony is they’ll find what you like and profess to love it just as much. For example, I might tell you I like Taco Bell and you might say you do as well, or not, but a phony will try to convince you that he loves Taco Bell so much, he moved into a Taco Bell and named his kid Chalupa. Maybe another example would be a Republican who has built his entire image opposing gay marriage but is later discovered in a men’s bathroom stall with six guys and a Barbra Streisand CD.

I love America but I don’t feel the need to dry hump a flag to prove it. Donald Trump, on the other hand, being the treasonous type who has displayed his love for all things Russia and Putin, feels the need to overcompensate by walking onto a stage before an audience and treat an American flag to the point he’s going to need a non-disclosure agreement.

What else can he do to convince you he loves America more than anyone else, seduce a bald eagle? Nope. That’s already happened and the eagle said “no.” Maybe he can give an apple pie the Jason Biggs treatment.

I never thought nationalism was pretty, from forcing children to pledge allegiance to political candidates attacking other candidates for not wearing a flag pin, but it doesn’t get much uglier than watching Donald Trump get flag gropy.

What was even uglier was Trump’s Saturday speech at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, which should replace “conservative” with “cult.” There’s nothing conservative about them anymore and with this change, it would be more honest and they can keep their acronym.

Trump rambled and screamed for the CPAC crowd for over two hours. He incoherently went on about tariffs, the Green New Deal, Robert Mueller, witch hunts, James Comey, Chuck Schumer, the media, reporting on his crowd sizes, his government shutdown, immigrants, food stamps, abortion, and lied about Hillary Clinton’s electoral vote number. He even dropped a few curse words.

Trump displayed his stupidity in lying about the Green New Deal. He described it as banning electricity, and that nobody will be able to watch TV if the wind’s not blowing. Seriously.

The CPAC audience, which spent most of the four-day convention attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, ate it up, but they fell for this con three years ago when he started his campaign. These people have overdosed so much on the Kool-Aid that they’re going to need a twelve-step program to get off the stuff. For the rest of us, beware of flag huggers.

Nobel-Prize winning author Sinclair Lewis wrote It Can’t Happen Here, a semi-satirical political novel in 1935 about a demagogue being elected president of the United States. One reviewer of the novel describes the antagonist (if you’re a Republican, that’s the bad guy) as “less a Nazi than a con-man-plus-Rotarian, a manipulator who knows how to appeal to people’s desperation.” That description sounds like a non-fictional person we know.

Lewis is often credited with the quote, “When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross,” probably because it sounds like something he’d write. But, there’s no evidence he ever said or wrote it. No one really knows where it came from. But there is truth in the quote.

Donald Trump waves a Bible he never read and hugs a flag he’s never loved before an audience of people he’s afraid will give him germs. Trump is a phony and proof “it can happen here.” And he’s wrapped in a flag.

Fast Food Traitor


cjones01202019

I drew this because too many people asked me to do a hamburger cartoon.

In case you didn’t watch the news, Putin, I mean Trump hosted Clemson University’s football team for winning the national championship. Since there’s a government shutdown and the staff of the White House is depleted, Trump served fast food. There were Big Macs, pizza, Whoppers, and other fast food junk sitting out on silver platters next to candles which were served cold to the champs. How tasteful.

Trump, our first billionaire president, boasted about paying for the food himself. Some people might think it’s charming and Trump is truly a man of the people to serve junk food. The truth is he’s just a classless person. He’s a billionaire without taste. He’s a billionaire who brags about buying someone a hamburger.

Oh yeah, technically; Big Macs aren’t hamburgers. They’re sandwiches. I don’t know why.

Burn Your Notes


cjones01192019

According to the dictionary, a cult is a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object and a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing. It’s a cult of personality surrounding a leader. It’s less about policy and more about adoration. It’s also less about facts and members of a cult will deny reality, truth, and perceive any criticism of their leader as an attack. North Korea is an entire nation in a cult. In the United States, Trump defenders are now sycophants, and they are in denial of reality. Trump defenders are a cult.

A conservative cartooning colleague of mine posted on social media today, that it’s hard to be friends with liberals when they think you’re a racist or a member of a cult. My answer to him is, if you’re supporting Trump then you might be a racist, you’re definitely in a cult, and I don’t want to be your friend. No friend request has been sent. He can get over himself.

You have to surrender objectivity to support Trump and claim that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and the newly reported FBI inquiry into whether Trump is acting to advance Russia’s interests and is a national security risk are all attacks by a “deep state.”

The fault for an investigation into Trump belongs to Trump. While sycophants ignore Trump’s actions that advance Russia’s interest, our justice system can not.

You can’t ignore that Trump called for Russia to hack into his opponent’s email.

You can’t ignore that Russians met with the Trump campaign in Trump Tower, their campaign headquarters. You can’t ignore that Trump issued a denial that was a lie about Russian adoptions. We initially thought the president wrote the denial for his son, Donald Trump Jr, but now we learn that Vladimir Putin may be the author. Hours before the denial was issued, Trump sat down with Putin, with only Russia’s interpreter present, and talked about, wait for it, Russian adoptions.

You can’t ignore that Trump has worked aggressively to dismantle NATO, which delights Russia. You can’t ignore that there are new reports that Trump discussed pulling the U.S. out of NATO, telling officials that he doesn’t see the point of the organization.

You can’t ignore that Trump thought Russia cooperating with our FBI to investigate Russian meddling into our election was a “generous offer,” and not more obstruction.

You can’t ignore that Trump spent over a year denying Russia meddled into our election and believed Putin’s denial over his own intelligence agencies. You can’t ignore that Trump refused to call out Putin at their Helsinki summit, or at any point in his presidency.

You can’t ignore that Trump said he fired Comey to get rid of the Russia investigation, and bragged about it to Russians in the Oval Office, with only the Russian media present.

You can’t ignore that when Trump met with Putin in Helsinki, no American aides were present, which is highly unusual for an American president. It’s unusual as in; no president has ever done that.

Now, we have something else we can’t ignore. After Trump’s visit with Putin in Hamburg at the 2017 G20, Trump tried to conceal his talks with Putin from even the senior-most members of his administration, and even reportedly seized the interpreter’s notes after one of his meetings. The second time he met with Putin in Hamburg was unscheduled without any Americans present, which is where he claims they talked about Russian adoptions.

This brings us back to other huge facts we can’t ignore. Trump offered Putin a free penthouse suite in his Trump Tower project, which never came to fruition (and by keeping it hidden, gave Putin leverage on him). Trump’s largest lender is Deutsche Bank, which many believe is financed by Russia. And finally, Russia meddled in the election to elect Donald Trump.

While talking to one of his favorite sycophants on Trump TV, er, Fox News, Trump said being asked if he was working for Russia is the most insulting question ever, without answering the question. He later did answer with an angry denial. But he also denied knowing about paying off porn stars and a host of other things in the past that later turned out to be true.

Trump is a liar and a traitor. He has worked actively to advance the interests of Russia and Vladimir Putin. The only thing we’re not entirely sure of is if he’s a useful idiot or a willful idiot.

If you still support Donald Trump and defend him, I have to ask what kind of idiot are you?

Putin Talking Points


cjones01092019

Did you know the reason the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979 was because of terrorism? Did you know the Soviet Union had the right to invade them? Did you know it led to the Soviet Union being called “Russia” today? Yeah, me neither.

First, a quick little history lesson.

Afghanistan was a puppet government of the Soviet Union. When an insurgency popped up, initially backed by Pakistan and Iran, the Soviet Union invaded to protect their puppet state. Their justification was the Brezhnev Doctrine, which was a policy they used to justify their “right” to intervene in the affairs of communist countries. This was a big deal during the Cold War and the Soviets had argued this policy when intervening in uprisings in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, retroactively. Russians are real big about revisionism, which we’ll get to in a minute.

Leonid Brezhnev was the head of the Soviet Union and he sent Soviet forces into his southern neighbor where they fought for ten years trying to protect communism. By the end of the war, the Soviets lost nearly 15,000 soldiers and their Afghan allies lost around 18,000. It’s estimated they had killed between 75,000 to 90,000 of the Mujahideen, the forces trying to restore Afghanistan back to an Islamist state.

Between 562,000 to two million civilians were killed with around three million wounded. There were about five million refugees and two million displaced.

The United States, along with the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, West Germany, Pakistan, and China, were aiding the Mujahideen (which included the likes of Osama bin Laden). Go rent Charlie Wilson’s War.

President Jimmy Carter’s administration opposed the Soviet invasion and even boycotted participating in the Moscow Olympics over it. President Ronald Reagan continued Carter’s policy of support against the Soviet Union. These were two presidents, Democratic and Republican who knew that the Russians were not our friend.

Earlier this week while engaging in an incoherent rant at a cabinet meeting, Donald Trump, the current president of the United States, said, “The reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia. They were right to be there. The problem is, it was a tough fight. And literally, they went bankrupt; they went into being called Russia again, as opposed to the Soviet Union. You know, a lot of these places you’re reading about now are no longer part of Russia because of Afghanistan.”

His rambling kinda reminded me of my college history professor, who was also insane. He once went on a rant about how great Montreal was until draft dodging American hippies went up there and pooped on the sidewalks. The subject we were on was not Vietnam or Canadian history. Fortunately, it wasn’t on the test.

I don’t know if my college professor was accurate at any part of his rant, or if he was off his meds like our president, but everything Donald Trump said was bullshit.

The war was not about terrorism, they did not have the right to be there, and Afghanistan is just one of many factors leading to the collapse of the Soviet Union. But where did Donald Trump get this idea about the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan? I was a kid and I remember all of this, so surely an old orange racist fart like Donald Trump would remember it. Right? Since there has never been any sort of revisionist campaign in this nation about the Soviet’s invasion, how could Trump come up with such a cockamamie description? Putin.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has much control over Trump, has initiated a propaganda campaign describing the war exactly as Donald Trump did. So, did Trump get this description from his master? Probably, but when? Did Putin feed it into his head during their private off-the-record chat in Helsinki? Probably.

Once again, Trump is doing Putin’s bidding. He’s advocating for Russian propaganda and even that nation’s pride. He’s arguing they had the right to invade their neighbor, undermining American policy and patriotism of Presidents Carter and Reagan.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page, a friend to Trump’s policies and owned by Rupert Murdoch, called Trump’s history lesson “reprehensible.”

They wrote, “We cannot recall a more absurd misstatement of history by an American President.”

I can’t recall a more absurd human to occupy the office of the American presidency. I also can’t recall one more stupid, racist, traitorous, despicable, stupid, sexists, and appeasing to Russia.

Did I mention “stupid” more than once? I’m fine with that.

Trump is Putin’s puppet, and he appeases him again and again. He’s defended Russia’s attack on our democracy and now he’s advocating for Putin’s propaganda. I think Trump’s comments is further justification for his impeachment. I hope Mueller is taking notes.

Trump and Putin are trying to rewrite history. I assure you, history won’t be kind to them. Instead of rewriting history, I’d rather see Trump become history.

An Incredible Offer


cjones07232018

When Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to allow Robert Mueller to fly to Russia and question the people there he’s indicted in exchange for the U.S. to send over American citizens Putin wants to throw out of high rises, Donald Trump should have given a very quick and negative response.

Trump should have said, “let me think about it and now that I have thought about it hell no.” No commas. No spaces. No pauses. Maybe throw in another expletive. Instead, because he’s Donald Trump who puts his personal interests before those of the United States and engages in treasonous behavior, he said, “it’s an incredible offer.”

That was Monday. Later in the week, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president will “meet with his team” to mull over the “incredible offer.”

Even though nearly 80% of Republicans polled believe Trump’s Helsinki summit with Putin was a success, Republicans in elected offices had a little trouble swallowing the idea of handing Americans over to Putin.

The Senate voted 98-0 to approve a resolution introduced by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) that the U.S. should “refuse to make available any current or former diplomat, civil servant, political appointee, law enforcement official, or member of the Armed Forces of the United States for questioning by the government of Vladimir Putin.” In other words, no. The Senate actually compromised and passed something in less time than it took Donald Trump to decide that handing American citizens over to Putin was a bad idea.

It took four days for Trump to reject Putin’s “incredible offer.” Huckabee Sanders said in a statement, “It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it.” It was made in “sincerity?”

One of the people Putin wants to be handed over is Obama’s ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul. He said, “Most shocking, and just lamentable, I think is my real reaction, when the White House was given the opportunity to categorically reject this moral equivalency between a legitimate indictment with lots of data and evidence to support it from Mr. Mueller with a crazy, cockamamie scheme with no relationship to facts and reality whatsoever, the White House refused to do that.”

Bill Browder is an American-born British financier who successfully lobbied Congress to pass the Magnitsky Act, a law to punish Russian human rights violators. Putin has put out international warrants on him for years, which Interpol keeps rejecting. Despite giving up his American citizenship, Trump was still considering handing him over. Browder said the idea, “is probably one of the most insane things I’ve ever heard coming out of [Trump’s] mouth.” That’s a huge statement because a lot of crazy has come out of that mouth.

Browder summed up the situation best by saying, “What President Trump was saying is that he wants to take a bunch of loyal patriots, people who have given up money for government service to serve their nation, who have been protecting this nation against Russian interference, Russia organized crime, and he wants to hand them over to the Russian criminals. To hand me over to Putin is basically to hand me over to my death.”

Seeing as this one of the public disasters from Helsinki, one has to ask; Just what the hell did they agree to in their two-hour private meeting?

Trump will get another chance to suck up to Putin because; wait for it…he’s invited him to the White House. Obama didn’t grant Putin even one summit, and in less than two years Trump is going to give him two.

One current diplomat with the State Department said, “The president has first and foremost his interests at the top of his mind, as opposed to the government’s. That’s very clear over the past week and a half, between shitting on our NATO allies and kissing Putin’s ass. He cares more about himself than the nation and any of us who serve it.”

I saved the best for last. The diplomat (remember, he’s still working for Trump) also said, “Either he’s compromised by Putin or he’s a pussy, in which case he should grab himself.”

Like A Glove


cjones04272018

The Democratic National Committee is suing Wikileaks, Russia, and the Donald Trump presidential campaign for conspiring to disrupt the 2016 election in favor of Trump.

Republicans say this lawsuit is frivolous and without merit and seek to have it dismissed. While the House committee studying collusion between Trump and Russia say there isn’t any evidence, the facts say otherwise.

While on the campaign trail, Trump publicly asked Russia to get involved in the election and to hack into Clinton’s email. The Trump campaign hosted Russians in Trump Tower who were promising dirt on Hillary Clinton. Don Jr. and Roger Stone were both communicating with Wikileaks. Wikileaks even asked Don Jr. to provide some of Trump’s taxes, so they could release them and make it appear as though they weren’t playing favorites. That’s collusion and a conspiracy.

The best part about this is it allows discovery for the Democrats to seek internal documents and testimony from the Trump campaign. Republicans can claim it doesn’t have merit, but it’s a fact the Democrats’ computer system was hacked.

Republicans and Trump are also allowed discovery and will seek information about the Clinton campaign’s financing of the dossier, written by a former British spy, detailing Trump’s connections to Russia. The only problem with them seeking discovery about the dossier is, it’s already been discovered and it’s not illegal. Conducting an investigation on your opponent isn’t illegal and it’s done by every campaign. Case in point, the Trump campaign inviting Russians to Trump Tower (though, that one might have been illegal).

If the GOP fights this in court with the same intelligence they’ve exhibited in defending Trump’s collusion with Russia, they’re in trouble.

The Democrats are seeking millions from the defendants for their conspiracy. Donald Trump is now a co-defendant with Vladimir Putin. Sure, it’ll be tough, if not impossible, to get the Russians and Wikileaks to cooperate in the lawsuit, but that will probably weaken Trump’s defense even further. Plus, Russia is probably too busy to defend themselves from charges of hacking the 2016 election in favor of Republicans while they’re busying themselves by hacking the 2018 elections in favor of Republicans.

There is precedent for this. In 1972, the DNC sued the Nixon reelection campaign for the Watergate break-in. Republicans called that suit frivolous also, yet they settled for $750,000 on the day Nixon resigned from the presidency in 1974.

The suit doesn’t name Trump as a defendant, but it targets Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort and Manafort’s deputy during the campaign, Rick Gates. The suit points out that these individuals were aware of Russia’s attempt to meddle in the election and instead of reporting it to law enforcement, they gleefully accepted the help. Manafort will have to get permission from courts (that’s plural) to leave his house to defend himself in court. He’s already wearing TWO ankle bracelets because he’s a huge flight risk.

Before Trump makes history by being the first president taken down by a porn star, he’ll make it by being the first president required to wear an ankle bracelet. Maybe Ivanka can design matching bracelets for Trump, Don Jr, and Jared.

This case isn’t frivolous. The Russians hacked the DNC and it’s very clear Trump was their choice. The problem for Trump and the Republicans is that there is a bloody glove…and it fits.

Here’s the video.
