The Big Lie

Much Ado About Nothing


I’ve seen several cartoons from right-wingers about the so-called Twitter Files, but none from the left, so I decided to take a stab at it.

The Twitter Files is Elon’s release of internal documents from head Twitter honchos over blocking “news” on its platform about Hunter Biden’s laptop in the weeks before the 2020 election. Independent journalist Matt Taibbi did the reporting on it and released screenshots of emails and files through a stream of tweets.

In October of 2020, The New York Post published a story that a computer repair man had Hunter’s laptop. He doesn’t know who dropped it off because he’s partially blind (I can’t make this shit up), but it was never picked up. He went through the laptop and supposedly found alarming information, so he gave it to the FBI who’s investigating Hunter for lobbying for a foreign nation without registering and for not paying taxes. He also gave a copy of the hard drive to Rudy Giuliani, who then shared it with a million MAGAt goons and The New York Post.

The New York Post published a story that Hunter has a laptop with alarming things on it, like photos of drug use, photos of Hunter naked, and emails that may prove corruption involving his father. At the time, none of this was authenticated to be Hunter’s laptop. Even the reporters who were assigned the story didn’t want their names on it. The story wasn’t fleshed out by The New York Post, so it wasn’t ready to be published yet. But, The Post is a Murdoch publication and the entire intention of publishing this wasn’t to provide news, but more to help Donald Trump win the 2020 election.

The Twitter Files show that the executives at Twitter agonized over what to do with this. Remember, this was stolen information provided by Rudy Giuliani. They had a responsiblity to check this. They decided to suspend the account of The New York Post, which was the wrong thing to do. Blocking the story is understandable since, at that point, nobody knew if it was a Russian scam or not. It has since turned out that it’s probably Hunter’s laptop although there is NOTHING on it that suggests either of the Bidens did anything illegal. No, you stupid MAGAts, and you too Ted Rall, there’s nothing.

There was also no evidence that Twitter was doing the bidding of the Biden campaign. The Biden campaign did ask Twitter to block the nude photos that were supposedly of Hunter, which is also understandable. The Trump campaign and White House also attempted to influence what Twitter allowed, and they were often successful. There was nothing in the Twitter Files that even suggest their actions were political or they were doing it to protect and help the Biden campaign.

Republicans are running with this and claiming it proves corruption between Democrats and “big tech.” Others say if the Post story and nude photos of Hunter Biden weren’t suppressed, then Trump would have won the election. Donald Trump is even using the Twitter Files to demand that he be reinstated to the presidency and that the Constitution be “terminated.”

Republicans ignore that it came from a stolen laptop and was provided by a MAGAt to Rudy Giuliani, and then given to the right-wing tabloid, The New York Post, and published in a story so full of holes that the reporters didn’t want their names on it.

One of the complaints from the right is that the mainstream media (the media that doesn’t make shit up) isn’t covering the release of the Twitter Files. That’s false as I’ve seen coverage of it on CNN, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. It doesn’t get more mainstream media than that.

Gary McCoy drew a cartoon complaining about the “left-wing” media’s “profound silence” over the release of the Twitter Files, but the media has covered it (see above)…just not to the liking of Gare Bear. McCoy posted on Facebook that the release proves “that the Democrats rigged the last election” and “Trump would be president today were it not for this scandal.” Gary’s also a moron and a former Never-Trump who got on the Trump Train after discovering just how racist Trump is. On another point: Why hasn’t The Week run a cartoon of mine over the past week, but they’re running this shit? C’mon, man. I think The Week is suppressing my free speech (see what I did there?).

Lisa Benson drew a cartoon claiming Twitter’s suppression of the files was “government meddling” and an attack on “free speech,” except Joe Biden wasn’t the government. He was a candidate at the time. Also, this isn’t a free speech issue since the Constitution, the same one Trump wants to terminate, doesn’t guarantee a constitutional right to tweet. Lisa, good cartoonists understand the issues they cover. So either you don’t understand what you’re covering, or you’re lying.

Mike Lester also claims it’s an attack on “free speech” with a metaphor about urinating on legs which is in some awesome artwork but….what? I scrolled through Lester’s Twitter to see if he had done something more recent since this was posted on December 2, but my god…that guy tweets racism and conspiracy theories as if he’s making up for Ben Garrison’s Twitter absence.

Bob Gorrell, who repurposes old drawings instead of actually drawing new cartoons, also got it wrong. There is no evidence in the Twitter Files that shows Twitter interfered in the election. Twitter is NOT a government platform and can choose to allow what is and isn’t published.

Eric Allie also complains about the lack of media coverage by drawing a “nothing-burger,” ironically with the huge label “Democrats and media collude with tech companies to suppress the free press.” Eric, the media is the free press.

Al Goodwyn drew a cartoon accusing Twitter and Democrats of “inappropriate relations,” ignoring that the Twitter Files also showed that Twitter often relented to demands from the Trump White House (sic).

Henry Payne makes the same complaint as Lisa and accuses Twitter and Democrats of suppressing “free speech,” but again, motherfuckers…YOU DO NOT HAVE A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO TWEET GODAMMIT!!!

Branco also claims it’s government corruption, but he’s either lying (Biden wasn’t the government at the time) or he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Branco has a history of being a stupid ignorant liar, so it can be either.

Finally, antisemitic conspiracy theorist whack-a-mole racist fucknut propagandist MAGAt Ben Garrison. who hates Jews so much that even the Trump White House (sic) had to disinvite him to one of their white nationalist get-togethers, also claims it’s an attack on “free speech” and writes a long blog chock full of lies about the election being stolen, Biden’s corruption, and that the FBI “purged” conservatives from Twitter. You really can’t address the shit Garrison lays out because there’s so much of it. You need Ron DeSantis waders to tackle all of it. Did I mention that Garrison’s an antisemitic racist?

I can’t wait to see what the other MAGAt cartoonists come up with on this because I actually enjoy fucknut MAGAt cartoons, but ironically. Since all the MAGAt cartoonists usually follow the same Fox News talking points, the rest should be in by tomorrow. C’mon, Steve Kelley. You’re eating dust here.

But from the cartoons I’ve seen so far from the gang of goons, I know that none of them actually read the Twitter Files, which is just fine because none of them can honestly tell you what’s on Hunter’s laptop that’s incriminating.

Updates:

Gary Varvel, who has never been concerned over what is and isn’t factual when making a claim, ignores that Republicans were also coordinating with Twitter. He also ignores that Fox News, the media, coordinated with the Trump campaign. He also ignores that NONE of this is actually illegal. What should not be ignored is that Gary Varvel is a right-wing MAGAt moron.

Gary Varvel drew another for Counterpoint accusing Democrats of stealing tweets about the laptop, and that doing so somehow “stole” the election. How is Twitter not allowing you to see Hunter’s penis stealing an election, but the Russian 2016 disinformation campaign not stealing it? C’mon, Counterpoint? Really? Sad.

Mike Beckom, whose opinions I hate to give any attention to because he’s not one to put a lot of thought into anything or able to understand complex stuff and who I guarantee didn’t read the Twitter Files, seems to be saying the media failed at making the laptop disappear. But I bet Beckom can’t tell you what’s on the laptop that’s so important for the media to want it to disappear…unless he loves dick pics.

Michael Ramirez totally works around saying anything hard, detailed, or specific in whining about Twitter and politics. Obviously, Michael is ignoring what’s in the Twitter files…or he didn’t read them.

Henry Payne drew another claiming Twitter “colluded” and equates Hunter’s laptop with the Access Hollywood tape. But, Henry Hanky baby, we know what’s on the Hollywood Access tape and it’s Trump bragging about assaulting women saying “grab them by the pussy.” You don’t know what’s on the laptop that’s incriminating except maybe some naked photos of Hunter, but Hunter wasn’t running for office. Also, if Twitter was “colluding,” they did it with both parties. Wait, did Henry not read the Twitter Files or listen to the Hollywood Access tape? Republicans do love their false equivalencies. Also, Henry, just how bad do you want to see Hunter’s wee-wee?

And Steve Kelley doesn’t even know which election he’s talking about.

Dick Wright, who is also a pastor and teaches that it’s a sin to lie, illustrates that he also doesn’t know what’s on Hunter laptop and that he did NOT read the Twitter Files.

I had a back-and-forth conversation with Dick Wright on Facebook about his last cartoon, and he made it perfectly clear that he didn’t know what he was talking about and that his cartoon was based on his lies, and that he believes his lies are his opinion. Counterpoint paid him to draw a cartoon based on lies and on an issue he was ignorant of.

Al Goodwyn’s first cartoon wasn’t enough to show that he didn’t know what he was talking about, so he made another. This time he claims the laptop is a “pretty big deal” and that Elon proved there was “election interference.” Al either didn’t read the Twitter Files or he’s lying.

Henry Payne is back with another and believes The New York Post’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop is equal to The Washington Post’s reporting on Watergate. There are so many levels of stupid to this.

I think Chip Bok is saying the lapdog didn’t bark but the laptop did bark….maybe?

Ready For Tuesday


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

I usually wait a day, or two, or three (sometimes I forget) to post my CNN cartoon on my blog, allowing the CNN Opinion newsletter a healthy run with it before I give it some competition. But honestly, I don’t think my blog gives it much competition if any. I’ve already told you kids to subscribe to it and the newsletter (and site) gets millions of hits. But I think I should go ahead and blog these during my 30-day Facebook suspension so that the blog subscribers who also follow me on FB (but not the CNN Opinion newsletter) can go ahead and share them on FB. Spite them, babies! Spites them!

Also, this one might be more important since Election day is just two days away.

Creative note: Maybe missing being on the road, I drew this at my local Starbucks after the cartoon was selected by my editors. I had a frozen mocha. That Starbucks was full of college kids and noisy. Soho Tea and Coffee in Washington was deadly quiet by comparison.

Music note: I know I listened to some music while drawing at Starbucks, but I can’t remember what it was.

Lake O’ Lies


Kari Lake is the Republican nominee for the governorship of Arizona. And she’s a MAGAt liar. She’s one of hundreds of candidates running in this nation that push The Big Lie, that either Trump won or that there was massive election fraud throughout the country. There are over 300 candidates in the United States who deny that President Biden won the 2020 election. FiveThirtyEight says 60 percent of Americans will have an election denier on their ballot this fall. That’s fucked up and ironic all at once.

These goons are running for office asking for your vote which they claim is fraudulent. Many are claiming elections don’t work unless they win. Some of these goons are running for office where it will be their job, if they win, to protect the integrity of elections.

Kari Lake is one of them. Lake went on CNN over the past weekend where Dana Bash bashed her over her election-denying lies. Bash asked Lake why she kept repeating the lies. Lake said, “Well, there’s plenty of evidence. We had 740,000 ballots with no chain of custody. Those ballots shouldn’t have been counted.”

Officials in Maricopa County, Arizona, acknowledge that a fifth of the forms documenting the transfer of drop-box ballots had incomplete information, including missing signatures. The county estimates that maybe as many as 200,000 votes were transferred without full documentation. Election-denying right-wing groups have used this to build and push the conspiracy of massive election fraud.

But, that’s not evidence of fraud. It’s evidence of mismanagement. And, the presidential election in Maricopa County has been audited more than once, even by Republican groups pushing the Big Lie. Yet, Lake believes all those votes, more than a third cast in the county, should be thrown out. Throwing out votes is NOT “election integrity.” That’s fraud. Republicans claim votes for Trump were thrown out in the 2020 election, yet they’re demanding that the same thing be done with votes for Joe Biden.

This is like when Republicans yell and scream about corruption from Hillary Clinton or Hunter Biden that they can’t actually prove, while ignoring Trump’s corruption. The thing is, they don’t actually care about corruption, just partisanship. If you’re upset over Hunter Biden, who’s never ever worked in government, receiving money from foreign sources but don’t give a hoot about Jared Kushner receiving $2 billion from his buddy and journalist murderer, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who he had many negotiations with as a White House adviser, then you don’t care about actual corruption. You’re a fraud and a hack. The truth is, you support corruption.

It’s like when these goons scream about corruption in Ukraine when the actual problem they have with that nation is it wasn’t corrupt enough to play ball with Donald Trump’s corruption.

And these goons like Kari Lake don’t care about “election integrity.” You don’t care about election integry when you’re trying to destroy the right to vote. Liar don’t have integrity, so they’re not the people to trust with our elections.

Bash asked Lake, “If leaders like you and President Trump are saying that the election was stolen, aren’t you participating, contributing, even causing the idea of people thinking that the election is not safe and secure?” Lake lied and said no.

Lake said, “No. We are going to make sure our elections are safe and secure for Democrats, independents and Republicans alike. We want to know that our legal vote counted.” But the thing is, they were counted. And in Maricopa County, counted multiple times. Even Republicans aligned with Trump couldn’t find any election. Yet, Lake lies and still says Trump won the state and Biden stole the presidency. And, she doesn’t use proof because she doesn’t have any.

Lake is a liar. Like most Republicans, it’s kind of her thing. She’s also a vile human being and has called for the arrest of her opponent, Katie Hobbs, without any real reason. She’s called for the arrest of journalists which is scary considering she used to be one.

Lake has claimed January 6 rioters have been imprisonsed without being charged (a lie). She has repeated false claims of election fraud from people like Sidney Powell. She likes to spread her lies on Parler, a right-wing hate site which is about to be bought by Kanye West.

And Lake says she will accept the results of Arizona’s gubernatorial election…only if she wins.

Kari Lake, like Donald Trump and all Republicans, do not care about election integrity. You can’t really care about election integrity when you personally don’t have any integrity.

Creative note: I’m leaving Louisiana today and my flight is at 5:32 p.m. I had to check out of my ratty hotel at 11 a.m. Since I had nowhere to go and didn’t want to just keep Ubering all over the twin cities (Monroe and West Monroe), I came to the airport. I figured I had plenty of time to write this blog before my flight.

Monroe’s airport is a tiny regional airport that only gets about five flights a day, from either Atlanta or Dallas/Fort Worth. There are empty counters car rental companies used to occupy (there are two left). There are empty spots where there used to be restaurants. There are no more restaurants in this airport and in fact, it’s probably the only airport in the nation where you can NOT get a cup of coffee. Even the airport on Wings had a lunch counter. There are vending machines which a guy is refilling right now…noisily. In fact, despite the slow business in this airport, it’s chock-full of distractions while I’m trying to write. There are the announcements that don’t really pertain to anyone because no one is flying yet. There’s the security guard tapping his fingers on his desk because there aren’t enough people here to look at suspiciously. There are weird pounding noises coming from a place unknown. Several airport employees are having conversations with each other while standing 40 feet apart. There are the kids standing at the snack machines trying to make up their minds while debating Doritos vs. Mr. Freshley’s Cupcakes. And goddammit, snack man is back to refill the same machine.

I can sit in a busy airport like Washington or Atlanta, and get work done. But a quiet place with just one noise will stop me in my tracks and I can’t think of how to write the next…

Banana Rudy


Rudy is in extreme danger of serving the rest of his life in prison and he’s probably too obnoxious and narcissistic to realize it.

Rudy used to put people in prison. In fact, he was damn good at it. It was his reputation for putting mobsters behind bars that got him elected as New York City’s mayor. Rudy is to New York City what Ronald Reagan is to America. Ronald Reagan was a bad president but people, not just Republicans, swore up and down for decades he was a great one. Before Trump turned the GOP into a cult, you couldn’t win a Republican primary without being a Reagan Republican. Rudy achieved the nickname and designation as “America’s mayor” while the fact is, he was a horrible mayor. And now, he’s a horrible lawyer.

Rudy lost his mind over the past 20 years since 9/11. The man who used to put mobsters in prison went to work for a dime-store clown mobster in Donald Trump. Now, the guy who prosecuted the mob may go to prison for racketeering.

Rudy pursued dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden in Ukraine, but couldn’t find anything, so he went on cable TV to spread conspiracy theories. He made threatening phone calls to Ukrainian officials that they better help Trump by providing him dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden, or at least lie and say they did.

He was Trump’s defender over the hush money payment to Stormy Daniels but messed up on Hannity by admitting Trump did make the payments and that they were funneled through shell companies. Maybe Rudy learned a thing or two from prosecuting mobsters.

And then Rudy was one of the chief strategists and public faces of Trump’s election steal. He was the champion of the Big Lie. Rudy held a press conference in Pennsylvania, thinking he booked it at the Four Seasons Hotel but instead, held it at Four Seasons Total Landscaping next to a porn shop. Rudy testified before several state legislative committees, loudly farting during his testimony. He held another press conference where the generic hair dye in his hair began to drip down his face.

In depositions screened by the House committee investigating January 6, a parade of Trump advisers testified that they told Trump what they thought of Rudy’s claims he won the election: “Bullshit.” “Completely bogus.” “Silly.” “Completely nuts.” “Crazy.” “Incorrect.” “Debunked.” “Idiotic.”

Adviser Jason Miller said he thought Rudy was drunk on election night when he told Trump to “just say we won,” without any evidence as states started to fall for Biden.

Rudy claimed such crazy shit as there were votes “in garbage cans” and in “shopping baskets” being wheeled in for counting under orders from Frankfurt, Germany. He claimed Eight thousand dead people voted in Pennsylvania when there weren’t even eight. He said there was a suitcase full of ballots pulled from under a table in Georgia which was another lie. And there was the lie that votes were manipulated by Italian satellites and the deceased dictator of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. He even publicly attacked Georgia election workers and sent goons after them by naming them.

America’s mayor had become not only a laughingstock but also very dangerous.

In courtrooms, Rudy made several presentations that were full of debunked lies. It was for this reason that Rudy’s licenses to practice law in New York and Washington, D.C. were suspended.

Yesterday, we learned that Rudy is a criminal target in Georgia’s investigation into election tampering. Rudy is scheduled to testify before the grand jury tomorrow and if he’s smart, he’ll listen to his lawyers telling him to plead the Fifth. He may not be that smart.

The grand jury has a lot of questions about Giuliani’s appearances before state legislative panels in December 2020, when he spent hours peddling false conspiracy theories about secret suitcases of Democratic ballots and corrupted voting machines.

Rudy was also part of the conspiracy to create fake electors for states to send to Washington to certify Trump as the winner of the election he lost to Joe Biden.

And if all that wasn’t enough for Rudy, he’s being sued by voting machine companies, Dominion and Smartmatic, for lies he told about their products. The companies are seeking billions with a “b.”

Rudy believes he has attorney/client privilege, but you don’t have that when you’re conspiring with your client to break the law. A lawyer doesn’t have privileges to lie and claim stuff like tens of thousands of underage teenagers had voted illegally in Georgia when there were actually zero with a “z.”

If Rudy goes to jail, do you think Trump cares? According to some reports, Trump stopped paying Rudy.

But here’s the fun part, kids: If Rudy is a criminal target, then so is Donald Trump. We’ll find out soon just how loyal Rudy really is to Trump.

I’m not a lawyer, but if I were, I’d be a better one than Rudy. And if I were Rudy’s lawyer, I’d advise him to roll on Trump faster than Josh Hawley can run from an angry white nationalist mob he instigated.

The Fix


CjonesRGB12232021

One funny thing about Republicans and MAGAts is that they think they’re the good guys. But then again, Nazis thought they were the good guys too.

Donald Trump’s acceptance speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention included the line, “only I can fix it.” Every candidate campaigns on the message he or she is the best person for the job, but Donald Trump was saying a line drafted for fascists. It was the kind of thing Saddam Hussein would have said. And what exactly was Donald Trump promising to fix? What “greatness” was “make America great again” referring to?

I didn’t underestimate Donald Trump as much as I underestimated Republicans. I never believed they’d nominate and follow an imbecilic racist used car salesman with a reality TV show, less enough a fascist. I never thought they’d not only trade in their party to become a cult but also their country. And I never thought Republicans would support overturning an election and an attack on our nation. I mean, these are the “support our troops” fuckers. These are the guys who used to worship Reagan and praise him for ending the Cold War against the Soviet Union. These are the people who told us for decades Russia was the bad guy and our enemy. These were the biggest yakkers about liberty and freedom.

That’s the thing about nationalism. It starts with a pledge, then attempts to outlaw flag desecration, and then efforts to make a national language. After that comes the killing of a press and laws banning insults to an orange gropenfuhrer.

So now when I start to dismiss the possibility of a second American civil war, I have to stop and remember all those other stupid things I initially disregarded.

The people who would start a civil war will claim they’re trying to destroy the nation to save it. That’s what they said when they elected a mango fascist in 2016. They claimed they were saving democracy when they tried to overturn an election and attempt an American coup. They said they were saving our democracy by installing a fascist dictator. They claim they’re saving democracy by limiting who can vote. Half of Congress doesn’t want to investigate a coup attempt on this nation. It can’t happen here? It’s happening.

“No one wants to believe that their beloved democracy is in decline, or headed toward war. But, if you were an analyst in a foreign country looking at events in America — the same way you’d look at events in Ukraine or the Ivory Coast or Venezuela — you would go down a checklist, assessing each of the conditions that make civil war likely. And what you would find is that the United States, a democracy founded more than two centuries ago, has entered very dangerous territory.”

That’s from Barbara F. Walter, a political scientist at the University of California at San Diego. She just published a book titled “How Civil Wars Start.”

Walter serves on a CIA advisory panel called the Political Instability Task Force that monitors countries around the world and predicts which of them are most at risk of deteriorating into violence. This book is her own study and not that of the CIA. Guess who’s on that list.

Walter writes, “We are closer to civil war than any of us would like to believe.”

The United States has already gone through what the CIA identifies as the first two phases of insurgency. The “pre-insurgency,” “the incipient conflict,” and the one we haven’t got to yet, “open insurgency.” But many believe the third phase, “open insurgency,” already began on January 6 with the attack on the United States Capitol by Donald Trump’s white nationalist terrorists.

Walter writes that the United States is no longer technically a democracy but an “anocracy.” That means it’s between a democratic state and an autocracy. Armed violence and sudden changes of leadership are common in anocracies. A lot of lies, bullshit, conspiracy theories, and “fake news” is used to manipulate people in anocracies. Who else is an anocracy? Russia is one that will make Republicans say, “well, alright then. Cool.” But other anocratic nations compared to the United States may not excite them as much. They include Somalia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Cambodia, Burma, Thailand, and Ukraine. Trump would call several of these “shithole” countries.

I grew up with the idealism that America was the greatest country on the planet. We’re better than everyone else. We were taught there was no possibility of a civil war in this nation even though we already had one.

We’re not the worst, but the United States is not the best nation in the world either. You can chuck all that rah-rah “Murica!” cheerleader bullshit out the window. Sure, love your country, but don’t be blind. Our nation is led by a bunch of fundamentalist religious zealots. At this very moment, the majority of people in this nation have a dying tree inside their homes to celebrate their “savior’s” birthday, on a day that’s not really his birthday. Sixty percent of Americans believe a guy named Noah built an ark after being directed to do so by God, put two of each species on it, and then the entire Earth was flooded for 44 days.

Hell, Norwegian cruise lines can’t even return to port with all the passengers it departed with, and they can’t blame it on “eaten by lions.”

In 2020, the Democracy Index (compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit) gave the United States a score of 7.92. But the freeist nation in the world didn’t have the best score. Who scored better than we did?

Nations scoring higher than the United States on the Democracy Index include Canada, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Chile, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, and Taiwan. But, we do win the most Olympic medals as long as ice isn’t involved.

The prediction of another civil war in the United States isn’t that it’ll be like the first one, a line dividing the nation with organized armies on both sides. No, it’s predicted to look more like Iraq’s insurgency. The opposition to American democracy will look less like the Confederacy and more like ISIS. And we may not even notice when it begins as it’ll probably just look like a daily mass shooting.

An Economist/YouGov poll conducted last week found that nine percent of Republicans believe it’s “very likely” Donald Trump will be reinstated to the presidency…before the end of the year. In case you don’t own a calendar, that’s less than two weeks from now after Jesus’ birthday Maybe it’ll happen on Jesus’ birthday. Trump does need a new running mate.

Nine percent of the GOP says it’s “somewhat likely” that Trump will be reinstated before Baby New Year gets here. Another 15 say they’re “not sure.” What’s crazier is that ten percent of Democrats think it’s “very likely” Trump will be reinstated within the next two weeks. Jesus! Not you, Jesus.

You may think these are not high numbers, but in believing U.S. democracy is going to die, I think they’re very high. And with half of Congress trying to cover up the Trump administration’s coup attempt, I at least believe democracy will suffer another attack and the insurrection will find support within our government…and within the media.

Eighty-two percent of Fox News viewers believe Trump won the election and it was stolen from him. Hell, 97 percent of One American News Network viewers believe the same thing, but to be fair, 97 percent of OANN viewers isn’t a lot of people. That probably means more Fox News viewers believe in The Big Lie than in Jesus. Jesus! Sorry again, Jesus.

An insurrection? A civil war? It can’t happen here, right? Donald Trump is claiming he can be “reinstated,” and as he learned last January, all an insurrection needs is a little push.

American democracy? Only Trump can “fix” it.

Also, if my comments on Jesus, his birthday, the ark, the tree, etc, don’t piss off as many people as my Mike Nesmith cartoon did, then that means more people believe in the Monkees than in Jesus.

Music note: I listened to the Beach Boys while drawing today’s cartoon.

Trump’s Recount Disaster


Cjones09282021

Every time dumbass Donald Trump tries to steal the election, all he does is add more evidence and validation that he lost and Joe Biden won.

Donald Trump lost over 60 court cases trying to overturn the election. He lost each time he bullied state officials to overturn the election. He lost actual recounts and audits in multiple states. He lost when he tried to overturn the election through an insurrection and an attack on the United States Capitol.

All the evidence Trump lunatics claim they have has yet to be presented. Probably because those lunatics, Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and the MyPillow fucker, don’t have any real evidence. There was no ballot switching by voting machines or Italian satellites. There was no interference by the Clintons or George Soros. There was no manipulation by poll workers or the dead Hugo Chavez. There was no massive voter fraud. There was very little fake voting by dead people and undocumented immigrants. Most voter fraud that was found was committed by Republicans. The biggest case of election interference and fraud was committed by the President (sic) of the United States at that time, Donald Trump.

When Donald Trump called the Georgia Secretary of State, he said all he needed was enough votes that would give him one more than Joe Biden had. There were no reports of missing or uncounted votes. On election night while he was ahead, he demanded election officials stop counting votes. Weeks later, he was demanded that Georgia create votes. And the biggest evidence of Trump’s meddling was his not asking to find every “missing” vote, but just enough to give him one more than Biden had.

When Trump supporters who believe The Big Lie (that the election was stolen from Trump) are asked for any evidence to base their beliefs on, the best they can come up with is that Biden winning is just not believable to them. They don’t see how Joe Biden could beat Donald Trump.

And why is it so hard to believe Donald Trump lost? Donald Trump didn’t win the popular vote in 2016. Donald Trump never had an approval rating above 50 percent. Donald Trump has the lowest approval ratings of any president in the modern era, even lower than other modern one-termers, George H. W. Bush and Jimmy Carter. Yes, Donald Trump was less popular during his presidency than Jimmy Carter. Donald Trump took an amazing economy and trashed it. Donald Trump ignored and played down a pandemic that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans. Donald Trump told over 20,000 lies from the White House. Donald Trump spent his entire presidency dividing the nation. Donald Trump’s administration was full of corruption. Donald Trump was impeached twice. Donald Trump lost the House and Senate during his term. Donald Trump is also a juvenile racist sexist selfish illiterate stupid sonofabitch that doesn’t care about anything except Donald Trump. It’s hard to believe this Nazi-praising orange shitweasel with the painted combover lost a presidential election?

They also say they can’t believe Trump lost because Joe Biden didn’t campaign as much. If he had, his margin of victory over Trump would have probably been greater than the seven million it was.

And now we have more evidence Donald Trump lost the election because the recount in Arizona has confirmed he lost. In fact, that recount took votes away from Trump and gave more to Biden.

What’s even more embarrassing is the recount was supposed to find fraud and claim Trump won. The recount wasn’t supposed to assure us of election integrity in 2020. It was just to give Arizona to Trump. The recount was given to a private corporation that is pro-Trump and has zero experience recounting elections. Maybe the inability to find fraud and more votes for Trump is why it took them six months to count it.

Most recounts are done in a day or two. This took six months. It started last April, six months after the election. This fraud of an audit actually cost Arizona taxpayers over $6 million. But that Republican-led chicanery was a bargain compared to California’s bogus recall that cost around $300 million. Remember when conservatives were supposed to be the fiscally-conservative guys?

Trump isn’t happy with the Arizona recount results and falsely claimed it “conclusively shows there were enough fraudulent votes, mystery votes, and fake votes to change the outcome of the election 4 or 5 times over.” But that’s not true. It didn’t find enough “fraudulent, mystery, or fake” votes to change the outcome once. Trump, you lost. And, you lost again.

Now, Donald Trump wants Texas to conduct an audit of the election which is weird because Trump won Texas. Greg Abbott, Texas’ horrible governor, caved into Trump’s demands and announced that a “full and comprehensive forensic audit” of four counties, three that Biden won, has already started, except it hasn’t.

Why does Trump want a recount in a state he won? Because Texas has a Trump cultist as its governor and this is another attempt to cast doubt on the election. In his demand to the governor, he referred to the election as a “scam.” It’s a scam in a state he won? He better be careful because he only won Texas by 5.5 percent. It could turn out like it did in Arizona and take votes away from Trump and give more to Biden. Maybe after they finish this recount, Biden will have won Texas too.

Republicans are also trying to copy Arizona’s recount in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Naturally, these recounts are partisan and being attempted by Trump goons.

Here’s the thing though, kids. Trump lost. And he keeps losing. In fact, new reports are revealing his White House knew he lost and there wasn’t any fraud.

All they’re doing with these recounts is giving more confirmation that Joe Biden is the president of the United States of America.

And the continued claims the election was fraudulent only works to tear down our democracy. Continuing with The Big Lie is the most un-American thing a lot of these people do. It’s almost as un-American as voting for Donald Trump.

Punch Drunk Trump


CNN09122021

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

So what happened Saturday?

On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Donald Trump provided live ringside commentary during a boxing match that cost pay-per-view viewers $49.99. The real show was Donald Trump as the match was stopped in the middle of round one because the 58-year-old Evander Holyfield, who hadn’t boxed in over a decade, was in danger of being killed by his opponent, 44-year-old Vitor Belfort.

Donald Trump did not care about any this, just like he didn’t care when he put the lives of elected officials, Capitol Police, his cult, and his own vice-president in danger on January 6. As long as Trump gets paid and attention, Trump only cares about Trump.

The fight was originally planned to be a bout between Teófimo López where he was to defend his unified light heavyweight championship against George Kambosos Jr in California. The rights to air the fight was won by Triller, a poor man’s TikTok, for $6 million. Triller has been trying to get into the boxing game and wanted to be taken seriously, but shit happens.

The date for the fight was moved, then moved again, and then Lopez caught the coronavirus and Triller needed a replacement fight. With a week’s notice, they got Belfort vs. Holyfield. Originally, they had Boxing Hall of Fame announcer Jim Lampley to call the fight, which brought a lot of legitimacy to Triller’s presentation. For the pay-per-view replacement fight, he was replaced with Trump and Donald Trump Jr. So long, legitimacy.

I’m shocked that the boxing profession, known for its long storied history of honesty, being on the up-and-up, and a system that purges any and all associations with conmen, would do business with Trump and Trump (sarcasm).

After all this shit, the  the California State Athletic Commission refused to sanction it (because someone could possibly be killed in the ring). So the fight was moved to Florida where anything goes like riding in cars with alligators through drive-thru liquor stores.

Donald Trump also went to a fire station in Manhattan (probably on Triller’s private jet which the use of was part of his payment) on the 20th anniversary and attacked President Biden’s handling of Afghanistan and to claim he won the election.

Then, he released a video attacking President Biden for surrendering to the Taliban without mentioning our president (the real one) was abiding by a peace treaty that our fake president (Trump) had negotiated with…wait for it…the Taliban.

An article in The New York Times referred to the boxing match as “three hours of Trump recalling different boxers he’d known and been friends with, before two depressing top bouts, both over in the first round, each of which featured one washed-up fighter beating another.”

Ryan Kavanaugh (no relation to the rapey Kavanaugh that I’m aware of), whose company owns a majority stake in the Triller app, said he was negotiating with Barack Obama to be a commentator on a future boxing match. According to an Obama spokesperson, “There is no offer and no negotiation.” Triller cliaims there are emails and texts to prove there have been negotiations but refused to offer proof. It’s hard to believe that someone associated with Trump and Trump would be so dishonest and deceptive (sarcasm).

Since there’s probably no way in Hell President Obama is going to call a boxing match for Triller, and since they are in business with the Trump and Trump, I’m shocked they’re not already selling the PPV. Soon, I expect Donald Trump to take a gig like one of those old washed-up fighters who get paid to have their photos taken with gamblers. Of course, it won’t be at any Trump casinos because Donald bankrupted those.

If you bought Triller’s PPV to hear Trump bark for three hours and saw less than five minutes of boxing (I’m guessing here), then you’re a fool and a sucker…

…just like everyone who voted for Donald Trump.

Vive Le Loser


Cjones07292021

Fact: Mike Pence did nothing…NOTHING…to prevent the United States men’s basketball team from losing to France. Oh, sure. He might give you some weak excuse that there’s nothing in the United State’s Constitution that empowers a vice-president to prevent an Olympic basketball loss, but I think that’s just a poor excuse for being disloyal.

I went to my local post office yesterday. I’ve gotten to know the people who work there. The guy behind the counter asked me if I’ve been watching the Olympics and I told him I have. I’ve watched badminton, horses, diving, volleyball, skateboarding, and the night before, I was watching the USA men’s basketball team take on France. I watched the game while I was eating taquitos at a place down the street and I left during the second period. So, I didn’t finish the game. I asked the mail dude, “How bad did we beat France?”. He said, “France won.” I thought he was fucking with me.

If you had asked me before the game who would win, I would have told you the United States. In fact, I would have told you the USA men’s team would go undefeated and tear through the Olympic tournament. When you look at who we have on our team, that guy from the NBA and that other guy from the NBA…and then there’s that other guy from the NBA, it’s impossible for us to lose. Basketball was invented here and nobody produces players like we do, like that other guy from the NBA. No other nation has as rich of a basketball culture as we do. Based on that, I refuse to believe we lost that game to France.

Also, another reason to refuse to believe we lost to France is because it’s France. We have a basketball culture. They have a culture of cafés, snooty waiters, body odor, mistresses, Jerry Lewis, mimes, croissants, and horny cartoon skunks. They cannot beat us. We’re ‘Murica, baby.

So, based on my feelings and not the scoreboard, we won that game and it was stolen from us. There are a lot of facts to support my belief it was stolen from us. Feel free to make these go viral if you wish.

Fact one: Mike Pence didn’t stop it. He did absolutely nothing to help USA win this game.

Fact two: The scoreboard was plugged into an electrical socket. Do you know what else plugs into sockets? Internet routers. Do you know who else has the internet? Italians. Italy probably used their satellites to beam something (we’re still working on this) back down to Earth (which is flat in red states) into their routers to manipulate the scoreboard.

Fact three: Italy and France share a border which means those two nations are probably a lot closer to each other than either one is to America. Bastards! With your help, we can finally expose this.

Fact four: Nobody knows how many cheeses there are in France. Some say it’s 1,600. Other says it’s over 3,500. I’m not sure how this impacted the game but we have Sidney Powell on it right now.

Fact five: The score of the game, supposedly, is France-83 and USA (God’s country)-76. The year 1776 was the birth of our nation. The Treaty of Paris, officially ending the American Revolution, was signed in…wait for it…1783. By “rigging” the game to end at 83-76, France was mocking us.

Fact six: Spain, who also shares a border with France, was one of the signers of the Treaty of Paris. We beat them in a war, and Spain colonized everything south of our border and gave them the Spanish language, which they’re now attacking our English language with. We’ll get Rudy on this connection. I bet it’s in a laptop someplace.

Fact seven: We got Florida from Spain…and they refuse to take it back.

Fact eight: France invented mistresses and the ménage à trois which was done on purpose to tempt and destroy Donald Trump. But the joke’s on you, France, because Republicans are hypocrites and they don’t care if Donald Trump violates every single belief they’ve been promoting for the past seven decades. So, HA-HA!

Fact nine: France refused to help us invade the wrong country after 9/11. And they had the gall to even criticize it. Plus, they raised tariffs on French fries, French toast, and French bulldogs.

Fact ten: After World War II, France chased out all the Vichy French which makes France Antifa.

Fact eleven: France invented democracy which stole the election from Trump.

Fact twelve: This is all we need to prove the game was rigged against us. The athletes playing for France…I hope you’re sitting down for this…are not American citizens. I checked and I’m pretty sure France is an entirely different country. This is going to surprise you Trumpers, but it’s also on a different continent. Can they legally play basketball against the United States? Didn’t anyone check their IDs before the game. Those players probably prefer France over America too.

This is probably the biggest scandal since Watergate and is the crime of the century. What we need to do is have the score audited by Cyber Ninjas (not real Ninjas because they’re from Japan, which I’ve been told is also a completely different country from us where English is not the most common language. Heathens). I’m sure they can multitask and do it while recounting the Arizona ballots. They should probably be nearly finished auditing those ballots anyway since the election was nine months ago and they’ve been counting for three.

After Cyber Ninjas (not the ninjas from Asia, where covid was manufactured with Dr. Fauci at a Chinese Wendy’s) finishes their scoreboard audit, several months from now, and they deliver the results we want, the USA men’s basketball team will be reinstated as gold medal winners. And if we don’t get what we want, then we’ll storm the Olympics and stop the steal. Who cares if the Olympics is contaminated with covid. People who love ‘Murica and Lee Greenwood songs ain’t afraid of a little covid.

Anything we lose that we don’t want to lose shouldn’t be counted. That’s how democracy is supposed to work. And if we can’t win the game, then let’s change the rules. We can start by putting the baskets for black French players in hard-to-reach places where nobody wants to go, like Idaho. We can also demand every French player have an American ID. And, if they’re not American, then they can’t get an American ID. Also, nobody is allowed to give them water or Gatorade during timeouts. Finally, all scoring is to be tabulated only by English-speaking Americans who would never eat little thin pancakes (God hates tiny pancakes).

By the way, did you know Larry Bird is from a town in Indiana called FRENCH Lick? The conspiracy widens.

Kevin’s Slim Pickens


Cjones07132021

A friend of mine used to hold a July 4th pool party every year…until one attendee got drunk and pooped in the pool. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence the pool pooper is a Republican. But nevertheless, no more July 4th pool parties. And pooping in the pool is exactly what House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy plans to do in the January 6 Committee.

The first attempt to have a commission to investigate the white nationalist MAGA terrorist insurrection on the Capitol Complex passed the House with very little GOP support, and died in the Senate. Republicans claimed they voted against it because the commission, with equal representation by both parties and each having full subpoena powers, would be too partisan. Before the vote, Democrats gave Republicans EVERYTHING they demanded before they could vote for it…and they still voted against it.

It’s kinda like taking your kids shopping for back-to-school clothes, and they refuse to participate. So after you’re done shopping for them, they get a hair up their ass because they don’t like the clothes you picked, which looks like that cheap-looking checkered suit Matt Gaetz wears. In this example, your kids are right to complain, you monster.

In Congress, Republicans, after being given everything they asked for, still voted against it. Even though they voted against it, we still need to get answers for the January 6 MAGA tiny-dick terrorist attack. So, Nancy Pelosi held a vote for another committee and this time, Republicans don’t have equal representation or subpoena power. Boo-hoo, fucknuts.

Of course, now they’re going to complain and campaign that they weren’t given equal representation and subpoena power. They will gaslight that they were never given a choice.

Kevin gets five picks and Nancy gets eight. Even better, Nancy can veto Kevin’s picks. And from looking at the names being tossed around by the tossers, she may need to veto every one of them.

Originally, Kevin threatened his members and said if they accepted an appointment to the committee, he would take away all their other committee assignments. Republicans are already afraid of this committee. They want all talk of the racists-for-Trump terrorist attack to go away. Talking about it can hurt the entire party in the 2022 midterms, upset the MAGAt base, and upset Donald Trump. If any Republican takes it seriously and ask serious questions like, “How many Nazis-for-Trump were in the riot?”, then Donald Trump may primary them.

Kevin is also afraid of who this committee may have questions for. Kevin is afraid they may subpoena Kevin. Also, the committee may subpoena Mo Brooks, Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump Jr, and even Donald Trump. Keep in mind, it’s a crime to lie to Congress. Mo Brooks is currently using defending himself in a lawsuit for inciting the riot with the argument he was lying about the election being stolen in his capacity as a federal official.

The problem for Kevin is: Do Republicans refuse to work with the committee and risk coming off as disinterested in protecting our nation from terrorists, or do they do the jobs they were elected to do and risk pissing off the racist MAGAt base and Trump in the process?

The answer for Kevin is to go ahead and allow Republicans to join and to make sure they’re poo-flinging howler monkeys, and in the House, there is no better poo-flinging howler monkey than Jim Jordan.

First off, Kevin can’t pick people like Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz, or Marjorie Taylor Green. They can’t even pretend to be serious in addition to being too stupid for the committee. Appointing one of those shitweasels will only serve to embarrass the GOP…which should already be embarrassed.

Kevin plans to pick shit stains like Jim Jordan who will use the committee to deflect from the white nationalist terrorist attack. Nancy should veto the selection of Jim Jordan. She should veto anyone who voted against certifying the election. Every member who voted against certifying the election voted against democracy. They voted with the terrorists. In fact, it’s illegal to be in Congress after you supported enemies against the United States of America. Every single one of those Republicans who voted with the terrorists should be removed from Congress.

When people are elected to Congress, they take an oath to protect our nation, not to protect terrorists. The Republican Party and Kevin McCarthy have chosen to protect terrorists over their nation.

Republicans accuse this committee and Democrats of being partisan about January 6. It is now partisan. One side is partisan to democracy. The other side is partisan to terrorists.

Nancy, please don’t allow any supporters of terrorists to sit on this committee. Let them fling poo on their own time. If they want to shit in a pool, there’s one at Mar-a-Lago.
