Statue Of Liberty

A Gas For Liberty


cjones11302018

Donald Trump has now gassed women and children.

Sunday, as a group of migrants near the San Ysidro border crossing stormed a fence, Border Patrol agents launched tear gas into Mexico at the migrants. The fumes were carried by the wind to other migrants, some of whom were hundreds of feet away, who were not trying to enter the U.S.

Trump claimed that agents had used a “very minor form” of tear gas on the migrants. That claim was debunked by his very own commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Kevin McAleenan, who agreed with CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s assertion that there is only one kind of tear gas, its “standard law enforcement,” there is no “very minor form” and it’s all the same.”

There is no tear gas for children.

This is another example of not just how horrible Donald Trump is, but also his supporters. Instead of expressing concern or condemnation after seeing images of mothers dragging children in diapers away from tear gas, they applaud and cheer.

There are still people who do not want to see this nation become one that gasses children, or tears them from their parents and throws them in cages. We are the United States, the beacon of freedom, an example to the world, and a shining city on a hill.

The Statue of Liberty shines a light for the entire world to see. But right now, nobody can see it because it’s in a cloud of tear gas.

Here’s the Black and white, because I just like it.

Be Complicit

What kind of person would want to be part of something that disparages, slanders, and disrespects Dear Leader and his sycophantic followers? Hopefully, you. 
Making a contribution supports my work and keeps the cartoons, columns, and videos coming. My income is from newspapers that subscribe to my work and small contributors. George Soros hasn’t sent me a million dollar check in weeks. Making a contribution of any amount, or buying a print for $40.00, makes you part of this specific resistance, and a member of Team Claytoonz (we’re still working on the name). You are complicit, an accomplice, and in cahoots (and whatever gangster terms we can think of) with this political satire pointing out that the stupid emperor has no clothes. Contributions can be made through PayPal, checks, and wads of cash exchanged in back alleys.
Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!! 

You can purchase a signed print of this cartoon.

Watch me draw.

Another Tablet Sketch: Trump Dumps On Liberty


Untitled5_001

Preparing to draw my “official” cartoon for tomorrow that will go out to my newspaper clients, I played around again on my tablet. I don’t think I’ll send this to them, unless an editor sees it here and asks.

Did you like this cartoon? Want to help a cartoonist make a living? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through Paypal. I need to buy pens, paper, sandwiches, and dog food. The starving cartoonist and his Beagle appreciates it. If you’ve donated in the past, THANK YOU!!!

Sanctuary Cities


cjones07092015

I’m not against “sanctuary cities.” Compassion, empathy and fairness should be more common. But when someone is in this country illegally and has been convicted of felonies over seven times then a phone call from the jail or sheriff’s department can’t be made to make sure the guy is deported?

I don’t think the blame lies entirely with one department. The sanctuary cities should change their policy where those convicted of violent crimes, or had been deported in the past, don’t qualify for sanctuary. It’d be nice if we weren’t providing a safe place for someone here illegally to go out and shoot a U.S. citizen.

This is 2015. This is the internet age. We know Lindsay Lohan made a nipple slip three minutes after. We move rocks on Mars. You can get cat pictures and selfies on your phone. It seems the departments in the largest funded and technologically advanced government on the planet could make phone calls and coordinate with each other when one is about to send a potential murderer out on the street.
