Steve Bannon

Buh-Bye Bannon


cjones01112018

If there is one thing we know about Republicans it’s that they will sell out their principles and everything they believe in to get what they want.

Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury has Washington in a tizzy, but we already knew Republicans in Congress, and even those in the Trump administration, believe the president isn’t fit for the job. Every reporter who covers the capitol has been told off-the-record by Republicans that Donald Trump is a maladjusted racist, xenophobic lunatic. But, they can work with that as long as the lunatic signs what they put on his desk.

Utah’s Jason Chaffetz said he couldn’t vote for Trump because he’d have to explain it to his daughter. Then that guy endorsed and voted for Trump, and I never heard how he explained it to his daughter. Ted Cruz said Trump was a sniveling coward for making fun of his wife’s looks, and then he has his daughters doing the Oval Office photo-op with the guy. Maybe if his wife was prettier then he wouldn’t have sold her out so easily. Lindsey Graham said Trump was racist and xenophobic and now he’s helping him deflect the Russia investigation.

Once upon a time, defending our nation from Russia was a part of the Republican platform. Now, these bastards will sell out their nation and kill investigations into Russia meddling in our election and colluding with the Trump campaign.

It’s the most despicable, racist, xenophobic lot of them that will eat each other when the going gets tough. Steve Bannon was the scariest Republican in the country last week. This week, he’s been banished from Republican Haterville because of bad things he said about Trump’s children, even though everything he said is actually true.

Ivanka is a dumbass, as her “TIMESUP” tweet yesterday perfectly illustrates. Don Jr did commit a treasonous act by meeting Russian agents in Trump Tower for dirt on Hillary. “Javanka” is an awesome nickname for Ivanka and her creepy husband, Jared, though they probably think it’s the capital of Indonesia.

Bannon is a perfect example of a narcissist selling out his principles. He isn’t denying his comments nor is he apologizing for them. Instead, he claims he wasn’t talking about Don Jr. when he called him “treasonous.” That is a lie as he was most definitely talking about Don Jr. He claims he was talking about Paul Manafort but how is Manafort a traitor while “Fredo,” Bannon’s nickname for Junior, isn’t? You either stand by your comments or you apologize. It’s either one or the other and not some lame-ass middle ground which Bannon is trying to take. He would have done better if he said that he meant “treasonous” in the good way.

Now, Bannon is out at Breitbart. Why? Because the moneybags propping up that bastion of white nationalism told them to kick him to the curb, feed him to the wolves, throw him under the bus, etc. These people will eat their own when the going gets tough.

Trump’s propaganda minister Stephen Miller was once thought of as Bannon’s ally on kicking Muslims and Mexicans out of the country and everything else related to white nationalism. Last Sunday, Baby Goebbels went on CNN and while making a huge ass out of himself to Jake Tapper said Bannon was an “angry, vindictive person” whose “grotesque comments are so out of touch with reality.” Miller, showing us all how in touch with reality he is, went on to describe Trump as a political genius. If you saw that exchange like I did, you too needed a shower afterward.

Without Trump or Breitbart, Bannon will find it difficult to fulfill his pledge of ousting Senate Majority Leader and stand-in for turtles Mitch McConnell. After endorsing a pedophile and multiples felons for Congress, the only person Bannon could screw out of a job was himself. How bad do you have to be for Breitbart not to want you anymore? It seems making unkind remarks toward Junior and Javanka is worse than endorsing pedophiles.

Now Breitbart is seeking a new director for its hate campaign. Breitbart is not a news outlet. When the wingnuts in your life defend the publication as a counter to the “lame-stream media,” smack them upside their heads. Breitbart is not a counterweight to news. News presents facts. You may not like the facts. Maybe you have a legitimate beef that at times a news outlet will spend too much time with some facts and not enough with others. But facts are still facts. How do you run a campaign against facts? You use propaganda…which is often referred to as bullshit.

Have you ever read the comments underneath a Breitbart story? If your answer is no, good. Don’t go there. It’s a hotbed for racist and Breitbart has never tried to dissuade hate goons from lounging in their house. Breitbart attracts the same readership as The Daily Stormer, which is a Nazi website. Fun stuff.

The only problem with these people eating their own is what comes out later.

Creative notes: There are some things I have to look up every time I draw them, no matter how many times I’ve done it in the past or even how recently. I always look up the American flag to make sure I have the order of the stripes correct (red on top and bottom, and first strip under the field of blue is white). I always look up the Confederate flag because I get paranoid about where the red and blue is placed, which is stupid because I used to live in Mississippi, and that thing was everywhere.

Sometimes as I’m researching I go down internet wormholes, which helps me waste time and procrastinate while working. It’s not always hard work that makes me spend six hours on a cartoon. But while surfing the Klan logo today (for the 987th time), I found a story about a sweet old lady who makes custom robes by hand for Klansmen. Before she ships them off to their wizard, poobah, or cyclop, she blesses each and every one of them. Well, won’t somebody bless her? There was a really nice photo of children wearing her handiwork.

Sometimes, I like to be reminded that there are some seriously fucked up people out there.

Breaking Hater Hearts


cjones01052018

I have tried to talk to Trump sycophants so I can understand what makes them tick. Why would they sell their soul and dignity for a stupid person like Donald Trump? But I can’t do it anymore. It’s not that I want to sit in my little bubble and only hear my readers agree with me. I actually enjoy hearing people disagree with me. But anytime you challenge a Trump sycophant on policy, they typically respond with a meme. You can’t have an intelligent discussion of ideas with someone who replies with a picture of Willy Wonka calling you a snowflake. It seems you really have to believe in the stupidity coming out of the White House to defend Donald Trump. That is unless you work in the White House.

As it turns out, the people who actually know Trump and are paid to go on TV and sell his bullshit know he’s a certified dumbass.

A new book called Fire and Fury, obviously titled after one of Trump’s threats to North Korea, came out yesterday quoting White House staffers and revealing what they really think of Donald Trump. We probably won’t hear “fire and fury” from Trump anymore. If a book about Trump’s tiny penis comes out called Little Rocket Man, he’ll probably stop using that phrase too.

The book, written by Michael Wolff, reveals that almost everyone in the White House uses about 20 different words to describe Trump as an idiot. It says nobody, including Trump, expected him to win the election, Melania was assured he’d lose (she cried when he won…along with a lot of other people), and the entire campaign thought of losing as winning and it would be a great money-making opportunity.

Wolff does state at the beginning of the book that some material may not be entirely accurate, as some quotes are told through other sources. But, Wolff sat in the White House for months overhearing much of the subject matter, which tells you right there how dumb Trump is for allowing this. Trump thought Wolff was writing a pro-Trump book. Wolff also claims he has hours of tape to validate many of the claims in the book.

The juiciest revelation is that Steve Bannon craps on everybody. Trump has now disowned Bannon and claims he never had direct access to him and had no effect on his campaign. I’m surprised Trump didn’t call Bannon, who once had clearance to sit on the National Security Council, a coffee boy. Trump said that Bannon has “lost his mind,” while not contradicting any of the book’s claims.

Bannon says that the three top guys in the Trump campaign, Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner, meeting with Russians in Trump Tower was treasonous and that there’s no way they didn’t take the “jumos” one flight up to meet Trump Sr. There’s still much speculation over the definition of “jumo.”

Other details claim Trump and Melania were arguing on Inauguration Day. Ivanka made fun of her father’s comb-over, and that she and Jared have an agreement she will run for president in the future while Jared (described as an ass kisser) holds her purse.

It claims Rupert Murdoch called Trump a “fucking idiot,” which puts him in a very large club in and out of the White House.

Trump clashed with White House housekeeping. Staff members were told not to touch his belongings, especially his toothbrush. If he leaves a shirt on the floor, the staff is ordered not to touch it. Trump has his own separate bedroom from Melania and sits in bed around 6:00 PM every evening eating cheeseburgers while talking on the phone with friends (who then leak the conversations to the press). Trump requested a lock on his door which the Secret Service denied. He requested two additional televisions to be installed in his room, giving him a total of three, so he could watch TV Elvis style. Remember, Trump claims he doesn’t actually watch that much television despite constantly quoting Fox & Friends through tweets during their program.

Trump eats McDonald’s so often because he’s paranoid someone will poison him. His rationale is that McDonald’s doesn’t know you’re coming and the food is already prepared, so they can’t poison you. If that guy can eat old Big Macs it explains the burned steaks with ketchup. I personally find it impossible to eat a Big Mac older than ten minutes.

Trump’s staff believes him to be semi-literate. This I believe. Wolff writes that Trump doesn’t read and doesn’t even skim articles, briefings, or reports. Former Deputy Chief of Staff Katie Walsh reportedly said working with Trump is “like trying to figure out what a child wants.” If you have ever witnessed Trump reading during a speech, you realize it’s like that slow kid in third grade who slowed down the entire class every time it was his turn to read aloud. Except, that slow kid’s teeth probably didn’t fall out while he was reading.

Sam Nunberg, an early aide to the Trump campaign, recalled explaining the Constitution to Trump and said he could only get as far as the Fourth Amendment before Trump’s finger started “pulling down on his lip and his eyes rolled back in his head.”

My favorite quote in the book supposedly comes from an email sent by Gary Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, which says, “Trump is less a person than a collection of terrible traits.” Yeah.

The most reported stuff is from Steve Bannon, who allowed himself to be quoted by Wolff.

Bannon believes Don Jr. will be a target for Special Counsel Robert Mueller over money laundering, and said, “they’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.” He also goes after Jared and Ivanka and believes Jared will be targeted for money laundering, just like Junior.

Trump’s lawyers have issued a cease and desist to Bannon which is laughable. Bannon may have signed a non-disclosure agreement, but that wouldn’t apply after the campaign. Bannon worked for the American people in the White House, not Donald Trump.

The fun part of this is to see who wins who in the Trump/Bannon divorce. Bannon has already lost a major resource for funding Breitbart (you didn’t actually believe that publication made money on its own merits, did you?).

Nicole Wallace theorized that Trump will win Sean Hannity and Bannon will get Breitbart. I’m thinking deeper. Who gets the Nazis and who gets the pedophiles? Bannon better hire some good lawyers, or he’ll end up with Eric.

Creative notes: Sometimes you have to talk through an idea with another person before it can click in your own head. I was throwing this at my friend Karen and getting her input on famous breakups. The people I kept coming up with were seriously outdated, and she being cooler than I am, threw out names that are so trendy, I have no idea who they are. Who the hell are Blake Shelton and what’s-her-head? See? I already forgot half the couple? Meanwhile, the people I was thinking of were Burt and Loni, Kiefer and Julia, Lenny and Lisa, Madonna and Sean, and David Lee Roth and Van Halen. Crap I’m old.

I was open to using a fictional couple and I liked the idea of using the couple from that teenage-lovesick-vampire movie. I thought it made the cartoon dumber, which to me is funnier, but after Googling for the names I was afraid I wouldn’t be the only one to say “who?” after reading the cartoon. Maybe, if those vampires had broken up this year it would have worked for the cartoon. Plus, I’m not sure if they broke up and got back together to live in eternal vampire happiness.

Karen agreed that Brad and Angelina worked better as everyone knows who they are.

I told my friend this is the living hell my head puts me through on a daily basis. I ask my friends a lot of really stupid questions that make them worry about me.

Angel Of Bannon


cjones10312017

Steve Bannon might just be Mitch McConnell’s worst nightmare. Not so much that he can remove him as Majority Leader of the Senate, but that he may run enough racist, right-wing, lunatic, freakazoids who will make the GOP lose the actual majority.

Let’s take a look at Alabama where Democrats never, ever, ever, ever, ever win…and thanks to Steve Bannon, they’re leading in the polls.

Right-wing extremists are the majority of voters in Republican primaries. In 2010, they gave the Senate nomination to Joe Miller in Alaska, only to lose to the incumbent Republican, who he beat in the primary, by a write-in ballot. People who are normally too lazy to even vote, got off their ass and wrote in “Murkowski” on a ballot. Alaskan voters hated the idea of Miller so much that they got off their asses and learned how to spell “Murkowski.” This is a state that thought making Sarah Palin governor was a great idea.

Roy Moore is the lunatic backed by Bannon in Alabama. He ousted the incumbent in a special primary election and now the race is tight. Alabama may not want to send a bleeding-heart liberal to represent them in the United States Senate, but they may be able to live with a moderate Democrat over a judge who was kicked off the bench twice.

Bannon is now aiming his sights on Mississippi, Nevada, Arizona, and Wisconsin. And, despite the racist wolf-whistle ads by the Republican nominee for Virginia’s governor, he wasn’t Bannon’s pick. That guy was even scarier.

If Bannon’s guys win their primaries, then Democrats may take seats in states where they didn’t stand much of a chance. The Republicans may lose their majority. Of, if they have enough victories, they can make life really hard on McConnell, and even worse…encourage more racist Bannon/Trump goons in the future.

Can you imagine the Senate full of racist idiots who don’t know how anything works? What about governors across the nation?

This is why Democrats and Independents need to vote in off-years and mid-term elections. While it might be fun to see the chaos and draw cartoons about it, it’s worse for our nation. Nobody wants to see America resemble 1930 Germany.

Don’t let these idiots win their elections. It’s bad enough now that we have to get rid of the big orange one sitting in the executive branch.

Creative Notes: I was working on a cartoon about the JFK Files and then I was struck with this idea. I’m planning on taking Saturday night off for a movie and ice cream, so I was going to put this Halloween cartoon off until Sunday night and publish it Monday morning. Then I realized that the cartoon I was working on was dated for the 31st, Halloween. That meant the Halloween cartoon would be dated for November 1st. I felt weird dating a Halloween cartoon for November, even though a lot of cartoonists will continue drawing Halloween cartoons the first week of November. I hate those. Hell, I saw a Thanksgiving-themed cartoon earlier this week. It also occurred to me that if editors like this cartoon, then they probably need to receive it today.

That’s all the geeky business side of cartooning. I do like the other cartoon I was working on so I’ll probably finish it. It’s already lettered.

Last creative note: The kid as the mummy was a late addition to this cartoon. I realized I can’t remember the last time I drew a mummy and then I really wanted to draw a mummy.

Bannon’s Blue Chips


cjones10122017

Former White House chief strategist, head of Breitbart, and poster boy for nationalism Steve Bannon isn’t just trying to redesign the Republican Party into his racist image, he’s trying to do that to America.

Bannon’s politics are so warped to the right, he was against Trump picking Christian zealot and homophobe Mike Pence as his V.P. pick. Say it with me now. Yikes!

Bannon’s first success in electing a nationalistic bigot was Donald Trump. Unfortunately for Bannon, Trump’s only true ideology and passion are Donald Trump. Plus, he’s an idiot. Bannon will need to stack the United States Senate with racists and Nazi sympathizers if he wants to see the United States truly become an authoritarian state subservient to one master.

Inspired by Roy Moore’s primary win in Alabama, Bannon has promised to make every Republican senator face a far-right candidate in their primaries. Well, every Republican senator except Ted Cruz, because he’s horrible enough. Bannon is also targeting Congress and is supporting a former-congressman and felon who’s running for the last Republican-held seat in New York City.

The only problem Bannon may have with the type of candidates he prefers is that they also tend to be kinda stupid. Roy Moore didn’t even know what DACA is and had to have a radio show host explain it to him. Perhaps, after the candidates assume office they can call Bannon who will tell them how to vote.

Bannon envisions an authoritarian nation that rules instead of governs. He wants a government where the head of state’s authority won’t be questioned, and the legislative branch is a paper tiger that folds at his will. The only reason current Republican officeholders are subservient to Trump is that they are afraid of his base. While Trump’s disapproval ratings among people who are not total maniacs hover around 70%, his approval among those who voted for him is around 90%. These are people satisfied with the job performance of a man who has yet to do his job. And, people who voted for Trump are OK with racism.

Bannon wants to replace Republicans who don’t play nice with Trump and don’t share his vision of a culture war and race-baiting politics. Bannon promised to “cut off the oxygen” to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and stop his fundraising for establishment candidates. He’s also called for Senator Bob Corker to resign because he had the gall to question Trump’s ability to serve as president.

He said Corker’s comments about the White House being run like a daycare center are unacceptable, and he had the “audacity” to make those comments to The New York Times. For Breitbart, a propaganda machine, an actual news source that informs people are the enemy.

Bannon said Republican incumbents have committed “economic hate crimes” against the “forgotten man.” What the hell is an economic hate crime? Also, when he says “forgotten,” he means white.

Bannon is declaring “war” on the GOP establishment and all those that don’t back what Trump ran on. He said there is a “new game in town.”

Bannon’s “war” isn’t just on the GOP. It’s on all of us who don’t want a xenophobic, nationalistic racist nation run by complete dumb-asses.

Democrats can’t be fooled into believing that scary, freaky far-right Bannonites toppling establishment Republicans is good for them. First off, the Democratic Party doesn’t have their act together. While they may find a few opportunities in Arizona and Nevada if those incumbent senators are defeated, there’s not much they can do in places like Alabama.

There are eight Republican-held Senate seats up for re-election in 2018. Expect Bannon to target Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Mississippi, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Tennessee. Bannon may also support candidates in states the Democrats are defending, like Florida, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Virginia (I won’t let Virginia happen).

We already have Ted Cruz in the Senate and Roy Moore is likely to join him. Can you imagine how truly horrible it will become if six or seven more like them are elected?

Putin will be so happy.

Buh Bye, Bannon


cjones08222017

The narcissistic uncontrollable racist has been kicked out of the White House. No, not that one. Calm down. The other racists in the White House. OK, one of the other racists in the White House. Steve Bannon is out.

Anthony Scaramucci said in an interview that he didn’t realize was an interview, that Steve Bannon was “sucking his own cock.” Of course, Bannon doesn’t have the physical or flexible capabilities to do that (I doubt he can bend over to tie his own shoes), but he was fully able to fuck himself.

So, how did Steve Bannon fuck himself? In a White House with a higher turnover rate than Gatehouse Media (newspaper people will get that reference), Bannon upstaged the boss. You don’t upstage the boss when he’s a narcissistic man-baby.

Bannon gave an interview, that he also didn’t realize was an interview, which he initiated with The American Prospect, a progressive publication. In that interview, Bannon said there was no military option to dealing with North Korea. That undercuts what the administration has been saying over the past two weeks.

Bannon also gave comments hoping to use the tragedy in Charlottesville to push his Alt-Right agenda. That would get you fired from any administration except the Trump administration.

What really screwed Bannon were his comments on who HE could replace in the administration, other departments, and taking credit for Trump’s “accomplishments,” whatever the hell those are. You can’t upstage the boss, and you especially can’t make comments alluding to being his puppet master. We all know Putin’s the puppet master.

The White House describes Bannon’s departure as a “mutual decision.” Yeah, if you believe that then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. But be warned, there’s a lot of Jews in Brooklyn.

After Trump’s comments on Charlottesville where he equated peace activists with Nazis, he’s losing support in Washington. Republicans have come out against him with three…oh my god, threeo, mentioning him by name. The military has made statements disagreeing with his comments on race. He’s even losing business at his ridiculous golf resorts over the comments. Thankfully for Trump, he still has the racist base of dumbasses to rely on. But, does he?

There are reports that Bannon will now be pissing in the White House instead of pissing out. A source close to Bannon told one outlet to prepare for “Bannon the Barbarian.” Breitbart’s editor tweeted out that this is “war.” He ever hash-tagged “war,” which is serious.

There were signs that Trump was getting tired of Bannon. New Chief of Staff, General John Kelly doesn’t like the lunacy that Bannon’s backstabbing brings. Trump referred to him earlier in the week as “Mr. Bannon,” which is something he likes to do when he pretends he hardly knows someone, like Paul Manafort or Carter Page.

One problem still exists and that’s the fact Donald Trump is still in the White House. Bannon may have encouraged Trump’s racism, but Trump is old-school racist. He was piloting the birther campaign long before he brought Steve Bannon aboard his hate train. Trump will continue to enable and connect with Nazis without Bannon.

Now all the racist heavy lifting will be left to Trump, Stephen Miller, and Sebastian Gorka. Though it may be a challenge, I believe in them. They can do it!

Who’s Your Caddy?


cjones02252017

What is it with conservatives and hypocrisy?

They spent eight years complaining that President Obama spent too much time on golf courses while neglecting his duties (and then complained when he’d issue executive orders).

During Trump’s first term in office he’s been on a golf course six times. He actually corrals the press into a club house where the windows are blacked out so they can’t see him play. Is the conservative press complaining about this? Of course not which might be why they’re not excluded from Trump press briefings.

On Friday Donald Trump spoke at CPAC and continued his war with facts and information. Once again he claimed a free press is the enemy of the American people. He said he doesn’t like “fake news,” despite actual fake news helping him win the election.

Before Trump took the stage his chief adviser Steve Bannon spoke to the group and declared the war against the media will intensify. He labels the press as the “opposition.” If information and facts are the opposition, what does that make you? Oh yeah. Liars. Lies and misinformation were Bannon’s bread and butter while he was head of Breitbart, that racist, alt-right, “information” source.

On Friday Trump’s press secretary held a press “gaggle” and prevented several legitimate news organizations from attending. He blocked The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, CNN, Politico, and Buzzfeed.

Interestingly enough, Breitbart, who shouldn’t even be allowed on the White House grounds, was invited. Also invited was The Washington Times, which is very pro-Trump, and owned by a religious cult (the Times fancies itself “America’s newspaper” and a competitor to The Post, but their circulation has fallen to less than 60,000). The third conservative news outlet invited was One America News, which you’ve probably never heard of, or if you have seen it on cable you mistook it for an angry infomercial. You can make an argument that The Washington Times is a news source, but the other two are not.

News is not what the Trump administration wants shared. They’re against news. The Trump teams wants propaganda and they’ll punish those who won’t play along. Bannon has promised to make things worse for the press. That means he’s going to make things worse for everyone who actually cares about freedom in this nation.

And those conservative outlets? They’re carrying Trump’s bags.

Fascist Say Shut Up


 

cjones01302017

Let’s start with the second most ridiculous aspect of this. This first is the fact Donald Trump is actually president of the United States and is issuing more racist executive orders than tweets.

The second is that an alt-right white nationalist from Breitbart is the president’s chief strategist. What’s the strategy? Telling the press to shut up?

Steve Bannon, the figure from that fine journalistic institution Breitbart, sought out The New York Times to tell them that journalists need to shut up and listen for a while.

Don’t worry. We’re listening.

I’m not really good at shutting up when people tell me to shut up. A person I never wanna talk to can make me talk to him by telling me to shut up. I’m sure as hell not going to let some wannabe Nazi tell me what I can’t and can do.

Fascist don’t appreciate journalists doing their job. That job is reporting the truth. Fascist hate that. It drives them crazy. That’s why they try to shut them down. It’s not going to happen.

Shutting up isn’t in the cards. If anything we’re just going to get louder. Especially in this era of Trump. There’s too much at stake, and too much we can’t let them get away with.

Can you hear me now?
