Trump Insurrection

A Capitol Cop Triumph


Finally, the reign of terror for the instigator of the invasion of the Capitol complex is over as an arrest has been made. The Capitol Police found him trespassing in the hallways of a congressional office building and they didn’t even require backup from the Washington, D.C. Dog Pound. Boys and girls, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog has been arrested.

After decades of mean, personal, insults, like “your dog looks like the result of an Ewok gangbang” and “your mom’s like soccer…always taking balls to the face,” and telling people that something they admire is great for him to poop on, justice has been served.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog was arrested by the same cops who didn’t find anything suspicious about a bunch of Trump goons touring inside the Capitol, taking pictures of tunnels and stairwells, the day before the January 6 Trump insurrection. I for one feel a lot safer knowing I can go outside and won’t be accosted by an insulting dog puppet.

Triumph started his career on Late Night when Conan O’Brien was the host. Now he’s doing gigs with Stephen Colbert’s Late Show. Last Thursday, a film crew for Late Show was in one of the Capitol office buildings filming a comedy skit involving Triumph when Capitol cops moved in and arrested nine individuals, including Robert Smigel, Triumph’s creator.

The film crew had permission to be there but apparently stayed after the building was closed. Incredibly, nobody was harmed, peed, or humped on, during the incident. But, there is still outrage.

Tucker Carlson is upset. Tucker has accused Adam Schiff of being behind the “insurrection” by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Tucker said the incident was “exactly like what happened” during the Capitol riot. Seriously.

The incursions into the Capitol Complex are NOT “exactly” alike. First off, unlike the Trump insurrectionists, Triumph is housebroken. On January 6, the goons for Trump defecated and urinated on the floors and walls of the Capitol.

Also, what happened on January 6 was a bunch of white nationalist terrorists trying to overturn an election they lost. They were directed by Donald Trump and seven people were killed. Over one hundred Capitol Police were wounded. What happened last Thursday was a puppet of a dog telling rude jokes.

Come to think of it, every white nationalist Trumper who invaded the Capitol is ripe to be insulted by Triumph…and for him to poop on. The Insurrectionists might even like that.

I think it’s unfair for Tucker to accuse Triumph of being a terrorist without giving the dog equal time to defend himself. Tucker should invite Triumph on his show. I think Tucker and his show would be great for Triumph…

…for him to poop on. I kid. I kid. Not really.

Treason Tours


There have been a few developments since my last cartoon and blog on Republican congressman Barry Loudermilk giving tours to white nationalist Trump terrorists the day before the January 6, 2021 insurrection to overturn an election and make our nation an autocratic fascist country governed by a Cheeto potentate.

Shortly after the January 6 coup attempt to steal the election from the President-elect, Joe Biden, after he defeated Donald Trump by around eight million votes, a Democratic representative, Mikie Sherrill, made a public statement that some Republican members of the House gave tours of the Capitol and congressional office buildings to some of the terrorists the day before their attack.

Very few representatives have offices in the Capitol building. The offices in the Capitol building are reserved for leadership. The offices for House and Senate members are in six office buildings near the Capitol. They are part of the Capitol complex and there are tunnels and even an underground subway system that connects the Capitol to the three Senate office buildings and one of the House office buildings (most House members have to schlep it on foot).

Representative Sherril said she saw Republicans giving tours of the Capitol and showing off the tunnels. Keep in mind that this was during the COVID pandemic and tours were closed. Republican Loudermilk was upset over the accusation, even though he wasn’t named, and filed an ethics complaint against Sherrill for making the accusation. He said he never gave those tours.

Then, he admitted he gave the tours but only to decent church-going families who didn’t participate in the riot. Heck, when they saw the riot the next day, they turned around not wanting anything to do with it. Why, they’re good people who support the president (sic), referring to Trump. He even said that none of them were wearing MAGA hats.

First off, Loudermilk…people who support Trump support fascism, terrorism, racism, sexism, and a bunch of other bad isms. Second, it turns out at least one of those people on the Loudermilk tour was wearing a MAGA cap, taking pictures of stairs and tunnels, and was involved in the attack on the Capitol the very next day. Heck, Loudermilk’s tourist even made a helpful video shortly before the attack that can now be entered into evidence.

In the video, Loudermilk’s goon is holding a flag on a pole and being in a stabby mood, that he sharpened into a spear. Sounding as if he had just come from Giuliani’s liquor cabinet, the man screams into his cellphone camera, “There’s no escape Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler. We’re coming for you. We’re coming in like white on rice, for Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer, even you AOC. We’re coming to take you out, and pull you out by your hairs.”

Loudermilk said, “This false narrative that the Committee and Democrats continue to push, that Republicans, including myself, led reconnaissance tours is verifiably false.” It’s too bad for Loudermilk that one of his terror tourists is on video the day of the attack specifically outlining his terrorist goals while holding a weapon he crafted for stabbing Democrats.

Loudermilk has been subpoenaed by the January 6 Committee to talk about this but has so far refused to cooperate. Maybe if he’s charged in federal court for aiding and abetting sedition he’ll feel compelled to testify.

But another development comes from the Capitol Police who has decided to roll over for the Republicans by issuing a statement that they didn’t see anything “suspicious” about Loudermilk’s tour. Sure, there’s a guy on the tour in a MAGA hat taking pictures of tunnels and stairwells who later specifically states he’s “coming for” Pelosi, Nadler, and AOC, like “white on rice” while holding a very sharp object. What’s suspicious about that?

I think it’s time for the Capitol Police to take another look at all the video evidence and issue another statement. It’s also time for Loudermilk to come clean and testify. It’s also time that a lot of people who committed sedition to start being charged by the Department of Justice.

It’s been over a year and a half since terrorists tried to overturn an election and destroy our democracy. If we don’t charge the leaders, like Loudermilk and Donald Trump, for sedition, they’re just going to do it again.

The only thing at risk if we don’t is our democracy.

Checked-Out Princess


During the January 6 Committee’s live hearing on Thursday night, they played a clip of Ivanka Trump’s testimony. Donald Trump didn’t like it.

Donald Trump used the lie that he won the 2020 presidential election and was cheated out of it to instigate the attack on the Capitol. In doing so, he committed at least two crimes. He tried to overturn an election and he instigated a terrorist attack. The January 6 Committee has testimony that Donald Trump knew he lost the election despite saying otherwise.

The snippet of Ivanka’s testimony that was played showed her taking former Attorney General Bill Barr’s side over her father’s, that Trump lost the election.

Keep in mind that Barr spent most of his time as Attorney General protecting Trump. He dropped charges against Trump associates, went on TV shows to gaslight for Trump, told the world the Mueller Report exonerated Trump of collusion with Russia despite the fact it did NOT say anything like that, told journalists Russia wasn’t trying to help Trump in 2020 and that China and Iran were larger meddling threats in favor of Biden, testified and lied that Obama had spied on the Trump Campaign, and he even created a Special Counsel to investigate investigations of Trump that has been a total laughable failure so far. This is a man who campaigned for the job by going on news shows repeating Trump’s “Russia hoax” bullshit. Bill Barr is no NeverTrumper. This is a guy who spent his entire time as AG motorboating Trump’s ass cheeks. But even for a lap-poodle lickspittle toadie like Bill Barr, there’s only so much Trump bullshit tolerable. And that’s exactly how Barr described Trump’s election lies, as “bullshit.”

Donald Trump lost over 60 court cases trying to overturn the election. He and his goons tried to get states to send “alternate” electors to give the electoral votes Biden won to him. He threatened Georgia’s Secretary of State to “find him” the votes he needed to win the state. There is not one piece of evidence that Donald Trump won the election. He lost. He lost by nearly eight million votes. This is not debatable. Joe Biden won the presidency. So, it’s natural that not everybody in MAGA land is going to repeat the lie that Trump won. Ivanka Trump accepted her father’s defeat.

In her testimony, Ivanka referred to a public statement made by Bill Barr that Trump lost and the claims of widespread election fraud were “bullshit.” She said she “accepted” what he was saying because she “respected” Barr.

Let that soak in. Her father says he won the election. Bill Barr, who is NOT her father, says Trump lost. Ivanka said she went with the conclusion of the man she respected, the man who is NOT her father. It’s OK, Ivanka. I don’t respect Donald Trump either. While we’re at it, I have zero respect for Bill Barr, but he’s right this time. Trump lost.

Trump lashed out at his daughter and Bill Barr in a “truth.” A what? A truth? Yeah, on Truth Social, Trump’s failing social media site that’s a copy of Twitter, tweets are called “truths.” Of course, there is no truth-checking on Truth Social.

Trump truthed (sic), “Ivanka Trump was not involved in looking at, or studying, Election results. She had long since checked out and was, in my opinion, only trying to be respectful to Bill Barr and his position as Attorney General (he sucked!).”

Trump is correct. Bill Barr does suck.

So basically, Ivanka was trying to be respectful to the Attorney General but not to her father? Got it, Donald.

But it doesn’t matter if Ivanka had “checked out.” You didn’t have to be there to know Trump lost. I wasn’t in the White House and I know Trump lost. But, other people who were there testified that the data from the Trump Campaign said he lost and that it was reported to Trump.

Jason Miller, one of the gooniest of Trump goons, described a call that took place a few days after the election between Trump and Matt Oczkowski, a campaign data expert. Oczkowski told Trump on the call he was going to lose the election based on the election returns.

Miller reacted angrily to his testimony being exposed publicly, because he still resides in MAGA land, and argued that they only used a piece of his testimony and that Trump disagreed with Oczkowski because he was only using data and not bullshit conspiracy theories. How dare that data expert give the president (sic) an analysis of who won the election without factoring in all the bamboo ballots from China, Italian satellites, Hugo Chavez and George Soros manipulating the voting machines, all the ballots switched from Trump to Biden while not switching those of other Republican candidates, and not include all the bullshit from Rudy Guiliani and Sidney Powell.

Miller also argued that Oczkowski didn’t factor in all the lawsuits they were pursuing…before they lost all of them.

But, it doesn’t matter if Trump didn’t believe the facts he was told. He was still told the truth. And the real truth, not one of the Truth Social “truths.” People who had not “checked out” were telling him the truth, like Matt Oczkowski and Bill Barr.

In telling people that the election was stolen, Donald Trump was trying to steal the election. Donald Trump claims there was massive voter fraud but the biggest election fraud of the 2020 election was him trying to steal electoral votes and threatening a public official to “find him the votes.”

I’m glad Ivanka “checked out” of the White House because she never belonged there and neither did your skinny idiot husband. Her father didn’t belong there either, but he tried to stay in the White House despite losing an election.

What Trump should do is replace his princess with Marjorie Taylor Greene because she still hasn’t checked out from all the conspiratorial bullshit.

Fox News Story Time


The first of the live televised January 6 Committee hearings will air tonight at 8 p.m. You can watch it on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, C-Span, and even Fox Business. Fox News is sticking to its regular line up of Fucknut One at 8 p.m, Fucknut Two at 9 p.m, and Fucknut Three at 10 p.m.

Fox News does plan to cover the hearings during TuckerHannityIngraham time as “news warrants.” What that means is producers will be watching the hearings and writing material of it for the anchors to be outraged over on the air. Fox News will have a special on the hearings at 10 p.m. which will gaslight the hearings to their viewers who didn’t watch them.

Fox News will not air the hearings for three reasons. Reason one is that they get the highest ratings with their usual primetime lineup. Sure, it’s all white nationalist propaganda delivered by a bunch of lying bastards, but they get viewers. Sure, most of those viewers are Nazis, but Neilsen Ratings count Nazis. Nazis buy Balance of Nature and MyPillows.

The second reason they won’t air the hearings is that they can’t let their viewers make up their own minds. Fox News can’t let its viewers watch the facts play out. Fox News has to gaslight the issues for their viewers. If you’re a Cletus, it’s easier to be told what to think than it is to develop your own thoughts.

The third reason Fox News won’t air the hearings live is that it would probably piss off their white nationalist audience that’s mostly made of sycophantic MAGAts. Fox News doesn’t want to air evidence against Proud Boys and Oathkeepers when their audience consists of Proud Boys and Oathkeepers. Their viewers don’t want to spend two hours hearing how Trump is a traitor to the United States. They’ll change the channel to Newsmax or One American News before hearing that stuff. They would just stick their fingers in their ears and go “la la la la la” for two straight hours, but they’d forget the words. Cletus will send Ella-Mae on top of the trailer to rearrange the antennae. She doesn’t need shoes for that.

So what will Fox News talk about tonight? Maybe they’ll do a segment on how nobody should listen to a celebrity like Matthew McConaughey talk about politics right before they advertise Tucker’s upcoming special on Kid Rock (this is a real thing).

Maybe they’ll talk about the assistant principal fired in Mississippi for reading to children the book “I want a new butt.” Maybe they’ll talk about the most dangerous thing making its way into schools today and threatening children, Drag Queen Story Time.

They’ll probably talk about the migrant caravan heading this way through Mexico. Remember during the 2018 midterms when it was all Fox News and Trump would talk about? They claimed George Soros was funding it. It was the most dangerous threat to this nation since Obama’s tan suit. It was so dangerous that Fox News stopped talking about it the day after the election.

The surest bet is that Fox News will do tonight what they do every night, and that is deliver propaganda over news.

Most news outlets are businesses that seek profits, but most of them understand they still have to be responsible to the public. Fox News does not get that. So while airing the hearings would be the responsible thing to do, Fox News would rather go with its usual lineup and continue selling advertising for the evening. But even worse, they’re not going to let their viewers see the proceedings but will later gaslight it all to them. And it’s mostly for entertainment.

Instead of showing two hours of evidence that Donald Trump tried to destroy our democracy, Fox News would rather show their viewers two hours of MyPillow and gold coins commercials.

Music note: I listened to Queen, not because of the issue here, but because they rock. However, when I first started drawing this, I got Cher songs in my head.

Primetime Distraction


I drew on this issue for the CNN Opinion newsletter but I also wanted to do one for my clients. And I think I drew a mean one here. Proofreader Laura told me this is so grim that it’s not really a cartoon. She tells me stuff like that from time to time. One of my readers tweeted that Fox News is promoting another immigrant caravan crisis as a distraction. That sounds like a joke, but it’s not. Is this caravan also funded by “globalists?”

This Thursday, the January 6 Committee will have a live hearing during primetime at 8 PM. All the news networks will be carrying it except Fox News. They’re going to stick with their usual goon gaslight lineup of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham, who I’m sure will each trash the hearing they’re not allowing their viewers to witness themselves.

Fox News can NOT air the hearings live and let their white nationalist audience form their own opinions. Fox News has to tell its viewers what they think about it, and that’s exactly what their racist viewers want.

Two of the individuals on Fox News’ primetime lineup are subjects of the committee’s investigation as a lot of the texts Trump’s chief-of-staff Mark Meadows received on January 6 during the riot were from Hannity and Ingraham. They were pleading with Meadows to get Trump to call off the riot even while they were on the air telling their viewers it was all a false flag and blaming Antifa.

CNN and MSNBC will provide live coverage which I’m sure will be awesome. Tune your channel to one of those networks.

The committee should be having a primetime hearing as it’s important the nation understand just how serious and dangerous the Trump attempt to overturn an election was and is. I saw a poll yesterday that only 40 percent of Americans believe Trump may be partly responsible for the attack. Americans need to understand that while he had help, it never would have happened without his support.

The Trump White House helped conduct multiple lawsuits and claims of election fraud and the lie that the election was stolen. They worked to replace state electors so that states Biden won would be counted for Donald Trump.

Trump and his goons tried to overturn an election they lost. They tried to install the losing candidate as an unelected president. This is fascism. Today, Republicans across the nation are changing election laws based on Trump’s lie that there was fraud in the 2020 election, and to enable future elections to be stolen by Republicans. In Florida, the Republican governor is personally re-writing congressional districts. This is fascism.

Instead of allowing voters to select their representatives, Republicans are selecting their voters.

The committee needs to create a program much in line with primetime so Americans can get it. James Goldston, a former producer and president of ABC News is helping with the presentation. This isn’t political. This is to save the country.

Axios reported that Goldston aims to help with presentations during the hearings that are “raw enough so that skeptical journalists will find the material fresh,” using a mixture of live witness testimony and pre-taped interviews.

The Hill reported that the committee’s goal is to create a captivating case for a large audience, particularly viewers who have made up their minds about the events of Jan. 6 or who are ready to move on from the attack.

There is suspense as the committee members have promised fresh material will be presented and they have not told us who will be called. Keep in mind, that they recorded every closed-door testimony. Will we see Javanka? Will Mike Pence show up? We all better stock up on popcorn.

I can’t wait to see this and I hope the nation can appreciate and understand the seriousness of the proceedings. I know voters have short memories but they should never forget the day Republicans tried to destroy our democracy or that today, they’re trying to cover it up.

More live hearings will follow but none of those will be during primetime, so this Thursday’s showing should be very special.

And I believe Republicans would rather there be another mass shooting than inquiries into Donald Trump’s white nationalist terrorist insurrection.

Over 800 people have been charged with crimes connected to the January 6 insurrection, with members of Proud Boys and Oathkeepers being added to the list yesterday. Over 800 have been charged and Trump isn’t one of them. Hopefully, after these hearings, that changes.

Patriotic Cuddle Bear


CjonesRGB01102022

Ted Cruz is a coward. He can’t defend his wife. He can’t defend his state. He can’t defend his country.

A man attacks Ted Cruz’s wife. What does Ted Cruz do? He becomes a sycophant for that man.

His state is ravaged by a winter freeze leaving millions without power and killing hundreds. Ted flees Texas to Cancun where it’s nice and warm and there are beach resorts and daiquiris.

Ted Cruz’s country is attacked. Instead of defending his country, Ted supports the terrorists.

Sometimes Ted pretends he’s tough. Like when Donald Trump attacked his wife, he called Trump a sniveling coward. Trump also accused his father of murder. Later, Ted becomes a surrogate and defender of Trump. We’re not supposed to remember Trump attacked Ted’s family.

When Ted fled Texas for a beach resort in Cancun, he went back to Texas immediately and went into the GOP Photo-Op Recovery Program, making sure the public saw him in his Texas-flag face mask while helping put cases of water into car trunks. Later, he blamed his daughters for the Cancun trip with the logic that a good father takes his daughters to Cancun when they plead for him to do so.

Even though Ted Cruz helped the effort to block certification of the electoral college, won by President Joe Biden, he has called the attack on the Capitol one committed by terrorists.

And even when Ted occasionally gets something right, which is rarer than a woman looking at Ted and saying, “Mmmm, I wants me a piece of that,” he quickly backtracks. Donald Trump is a sniveling coward and Ted shouldn’t have backed away from that. But just like Trump, Ted is a sniveling coward and that goes with his smarmy condescending icky creepy personality. Ted will grovel and kiss any ass he believes will help him become president, even the asses of the vilest, like Donald Trump and Tucker Carlson. On Thursday night, Ted Cruz groveled to Tucker Carlson.

The entire nation calls Ted Cruz a liar but it’s politically damaging when Tucker Carlson calls you one, even though he himself is a liar.

Ted Cruz has called the terrorists “terrorists” multiple times. But after doing it again earlier in the week, Tucker Carlson got upset at Ted for calling terrorists “terrorists.”

Ted Cruz went on Tucker’s show and said his “terrorists” comments were “sloppy” and “frankly dumb.” That could be a good defense for Cruz because a lot of his comments are sloppy and dumb. But here, Ted was quibbling.

Tucker was upset over the white nationalists who tried to overturn the election to install Donald Trump as a fascist dictator and said to Ted, “You told that lie on purpose, and I’m wondering why you did.”

This is when Ted quibbled. Lying Ted said, “What I was referring to are the limited number of people who engaged in violent attacks against police officers. I think you and I both agree that if you assault a police officer, you should go to jail. I wasn’t saying the thousands of peaceful protesters supporting Donald Trump are somehow terrorists. I wasn’t saying the millions of patriots across the country supporting Trump are terrorists.”

That’s like saying only the pilots of the planes were terrorists on 9/11. The other guys were peaceful protesters. Osama bin Laden isn’t a terrorist because he wasn’t on the plane. He was only the mastermind. He only sent the terrorists.

The FBI defines terrorism as: “violent, criminal acts committed by individuals and/or groups to further ideological goals stemming from domestic influences, such as those of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature.”

The people who attacked the Capitol, and not just the Capitol Police, were trying to destroy our democracy. They were trying to stop a process mandated by the United States Constitution. They were trying to overturn a legal election. They were trying to install Donald Trump as an unelected dictator. They were attempting a coup. Everything they did fits the definition of terrorism.

Ted Cruz was right and he shouldn’t have backed down, especially to the likes of a lying coward like Tucker Carlson.

Ted Cruz went on to say, “So, of course, it would be ridiculous for me to be saying that the people standing up and protesting to follow the law were somehow terrorists. I was talking about people who commit violence against cops.” Everyone who entered that building on January 6, 2021, to “protest” the legal election was committing an act of terrorism. Everyone who broke windows, stole property, and defecated and urinated on the floors and hallways were terrorists. Ashli Babbitt was a terrorist.

Ted continued to grovel and said, “It was a mistake to say that yesterday and the reason is what you just said, which is we have now had a year of Democrats and the media twisting words and trying to say that all of us are terrorists. Trying to say you are a terrorist, I am a terrorist.” But, Ted. You and Tucker do support terrorists. Everyone who uses the word “protests” or “tourists” to describe the events on January 6, 2021, supports terrorists. Donald Trump supports terrorists.

Tucker spent the entire segment insulting Ted Cruz and calling him a liar. Ted continued to grovel while the dangling little dots that vaguely resemble testicles receded into his body.

Tucker Carlson ended his segment by telling Ted Cruz, “I guess I just don’t believe you, and I mean that with respect.”

That was another lie because nobody respects Ted Cruz.

Subpoena Propagandist


CjonesRGB01072022

Sean Hannity’s show for racist MAGAt troglodytes airs every weeknight on Fox News at 9 P.M. I know this because I asked Alexa. I sure wouldn’t know from watching Fox News because I don’t watch Fox News. At first, Alexa replied, “How am I supposed to know? I don’t watch that shit.” I also didn’t know whose show was first each night, Tucker or Hannity. It’s like which came first, the racist chicken or the racist egg? Anyway, Hannity’s show comes on at 9 P.M, a time slot he’s winning against MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and CNN’s Michael Smerconish, along with whoever else is in the rotating chair since CNN fired Chris Cuomo.

And remember why CNN fired Chris Cuomo? CNN fired Chris Cuomo because he was a journalist, or at least he was supposed to be. A journalist can not act as an adviser to politicians or other people in the news. Chris Cuomo acted as an adviser to Andrew, his brother who was governor of New York at the time, over his groping of women. Cuomo was advising Cuomo on how to work with the media through the scandal. Chris even ran interference on a few stories. He also lied to his bosses over the entire ordeal. If Rachel Maddow had been doing this with a politician, like giving lessons on being less creepy to Rahm Emanuel, I’m certain MSNBC would have fired her too.

When Rahm Emanuel was President Obama’s chief-of-staff, he’d go into the showers in the Capitol to intimidate representatives into voting for the president’s agenda. That means Emanuel has something very intimidating when he’s naked, or at least he thinks he does, or it could just be the fact they’re taking a shower with Rahm Emanuel. I also hope you weren’t having a meal while I put a naked Rahm Emanuel in your brain.

CNN did not want to fire Chris Cuomo but they had no choice. CNN is a news organization and they must abide by strict journalism standards and ethics. News organizations have ethics policies that all their journalists must sign, including goofy sarcastic political cartoonists (over the years, I’ve noticed that cartoonists, even liberal cartoonists, who never worked for a newspaper have no idea of what journalism ethics are). As an example of ethics, I could not lie about that naked Rahm Emanuel thing.

So, Chris Cuomo got fired for helping his brother run strategy. Maddow would be fired if she helped a politician coordinate. Just being caught doing these things is huge news. Luckily for Sean Hannity, he works for Fox News.

Fox News labels itself as a news network. They even have the tagline “fair and balanced.” They still say that, right? Hmmm…does Rahm Emanuel say “fair and balanced” while he’s naked? But Fox News is not a news show. They lie and they give time to fellow liars and conspiracy theorists. You know, Republicans. The only time Fox News is concerned about airing a conspiracy theory is when it’ll get them in legal trouble.

If you’re a conservative who rejoiced over that Sandmann shit-eating-grin kid who sued CNN, The Washington Post, and other news outlets, and received settlements, then you’re probably not going to love that Fox News is being sued by the company that owns Dominion Voting Machines. This will probably result in a settlement that’ll make the Sandmann suit pitiful, which is probably already pitiful.

It’s bad enough Fox gives airtime to liars and conspiracy theorists like Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, but it’s even worse that these goons coordinate and socialize with politicians.

When Donald Trump was president (sic), his staffers would call Hannity and help coordinate the message for that night’s show. If this had occurred at a real news network, he would have been fired.

Sean Hannity often called Trump, or Trump called him, not for an interview, but so they could coordinate and Hannity would give Donald advice. If Fox News cared about the impression of impropriety, Hannity would have been fired for this.

Hannity often went to the White House to have dinner with Trump, which I’m sure wasn’t because Hannity has a boner for Big Macs.

Sean Hannity went to Trump rallies, not to cover them but to campaign for Trump. Yeah, I know….naked Rahm Emanuel and Hannity’s boner for Big Macs in one blog. I’m sorry. At these rallies, Hannity had a time slot on the stage to speak to the audience about the greatness of Donald Trump. Holy fucking shit, how is this even allowed for a fake-news network?

I think if Jon Stewart did this while he was hosting a show he himself called “fake news,” Comedy Central probably would have fired him. Stewart’s “fake news” had higher standards than Fox News. Hell, polls showed viewers of the Daily Show are more informed than viewers of Fox News.

We learned a few weeks ago that Sean Hannity and other Fox News goons were doing shows on the election lie while knowing Joe Biden won the election. Every news network gets stuff wrong and then they run retractions. Over at Fox News, they knowingly air false information. We know that during the insurrection, Fox fuckers were texting Trump chief-of-staff Mark Meadows to get his boss to call off the riot, while they were on the air telling their audience it wasn’t happening. They were on the air blaming Democrats, Antifa, and the FBI, and during commercial breaks, they’d text Meadows in a panic to call off the white nationalist mob.

Now, the January 6 Committee investigating the Trump insurrection has released just a few texts from Sean Hannity that reveal he was very worried on January 5 about what was going to happen the next day. I half expect Sean Hannity’s defense to be that the January 6 Committee can’t use these texts because they were sent on January 5th. You’re the January 6 Committee, not the January 5 Committee. This is why Kevin McCarthy’s selections for the committee were rejected. Maybe he should try that naked shower thing on them. Again, sorry.

Actually, if McCarthy could, he would have appointed Sean Hannity to the committee.

The texts show Hannity was worried about what Trump was planning for January 6 when Congress was to set certify the 2020 election. Hannity was also worried about Trump’s state of mind (welcome to the club) and over mass resignations at the Trump (sic) White House, specifically the White House Counsel’s office. A lot of people were quitting before Trump’s term was over, which was just one because he lost to Joe Biden. Most resigned to avoid going to prison because they knew a bunch of illegal shit was about to go down….well a bunch more illegal shit. Even William Barr, the attorney general who’s still trying to watch Trump crap off his nose (while naked in the shower), resigned before the term was over, which was only one because Donald Trump was defeated in the election by Joe Biden (who broke his foot playing with his dog while naked getting out of the shower).

Just to remind you, Donald Trump is the first one-term president since George H. W. Bush. He’s the first one-term president in nearly 30 years. He’s in the one-termer club with such stellar luminaries as James Polk, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, Martin Van Buren, Herbert Hoover. Poor William Howard Taft is in three clubs with Trump, the Loser Club, the Fattest President Cub, and the Presidents Who Have The Most Difficulty Reaching Their Backs While Naked In The Shower Club.

I’d mention Jimmy Carter but he’s a nice guy and doesn’t deserve to be in the same sentence with…

…Donald Trump, less enough the same club.

Back to Hannity, he was worried but you wouldn’t have known it from watching his show where he was interviewing Trump goons about the possibility of them successfully overturning a fair and legal election.

While Hannity was on the air talking about stealing an election, his texts show he didn’t want Trump to mention the election ever again. There’s also evidence he was texting Trump while he was naked in the shower. OK, at this point, I’m just fucking with you. Go ahead with your meal. I won’t do it again. Promise.

Hannity Texted Meadows and Jim Jordan with, “He can’t mention the election again. Ever. I did not have a good call with him today. And worse, I’m not sure what is left to do or say, and I don’t like not knowing if it’s truly understood. Ideas?”

That right there should get him fired. Also, what constitutes a call with Trump for it not to be “good?” Did Trump not give his usual rundown of favorite dipping sauces for McNuggets?

The texts also reveal he wanted the White House to stop pressuring Vice President (sic) Mike Pence from trying to overturn the election. It was with that he was afraid the White House Counsel would quit. Overturning an election is unconstitutional and it’s really hard to legal your way out of that…while Mike Pence is naked in the shower. C’mon, you knew I was lying.

In one text sent on January 5th, Hannity wrote, “I’m very worried about the next 48 hours.” I’m sure at some point during those 48 hours, Hannity was….OK, I’ll stop.

All these texts show that Sean Hannity a witness. The committee would really like to talk to him. First, they’re asking nicely. But if Hannity doesn’t comply, they can subpoena him.

Now, you may point out that Sean Hannity himself has stated he’s not a journalist, but guess what. He’s using the press-freedom argument.

Jay Sekulow, Hannity’s lawyer, issued a….wait a fucking minute.

Jay Sekulow was Donald Trump’s lawyer during the Russia investigation and his first impeachment (still feels weird we have to refer to a president’s (sic) impeachments by numbers. Fun fact: Most presidents don’t have impeachments, even bad ones). This is another conflict of interest for a journalist and another reason Hannity should be fired.

Sekulow’s statement said the committee’s request “would raise serious constitutional issues including First Amendment concerns regarding freedom of the press.” But, Hannity is NOT a journalist. Don’t take my word for it, take his. And Fox News is NOT the press. Another piece of evidence, Mr. Sekulow, that Hannity is NOT a credible journalist is the very fact that you’re issuing legal statements for him. You, Mr. Sekulow, are a conflict of interest.

You want to present evidence, Mr. Sekulow? You are the evidence. You goons are too stupid for stupid. We’re going to have to create a new word for “stupid” just for Trump goons.

Fun fact: Jay Sekulow is a partner at Stupid, Asshead, Fuckface, Sekulow, and Stupid. I might have made that up. I’m also pretty sure that whatever law firm Sekulow works at has a shower.

The committee can feel free to subpoena Sean Hannity because Hannity is NOT a journalist.

The closest Sean Hannity has ever come to being a journalist is all the times he scowls to a question like a real journalist. “Were you in that shower? Scowl!” Alan Alda is more of a doctor than Hannity is a journalist. And Lionel Hutz is more of a competent lawyer than Jay Sekulow.

Dear January 6 Committee, subpoena Sean Hannity. And while you’re at it, take off the baby gloves and subpoena all the witnesses from every goon at Fox News to Rudy Giuliani to Donald Trump Jr to your Republican House colleagues to Ivanka Trump to Donald Trump. Get ’em all.

And if you can’t sit their asses in front of you to testify, then send all their asses to prison. At the very least, Hannity can continue having meals with Donald Trump.

And there’s another way to make these fuckers talk. Ya’ see, there’s this guy named Rahm Emanuel…

Mixed Up Cover-Ups


CjonesRGB12272021

The January 6 Committee, that congressional group investigating the attack on the Capitol committed by white nationalist Trump supporters, has subpoenaed congressman Jim Jordan.

Jim Jordan is that Republican who uses congressional hearings to protect Trump. When he questions witnesses, he doesn’t allow them to answer. He uses his time to make accusations. When he questions witnesses on his side, he leads them with his fake questions. He spends all his time deflecting for Donald Trump. And let’s not forget his lying and deflecting to cover up the Ohio State wrestling sex abuse scandal.

Even now, he’s using a misplaced period to argue the committee is a sham.

Jim Jordan sent a text to Trump’s White House chief-of-staff arguing how vice-president (sic) Mike Pence should throw out electoral votes.

During one of the committee’s hearings, Schiff presented a graphic of a text sent by Jim Jordan, though we didn’t know the sender was Jordan at the time and Schiff didn’t out him. The graphic of the text read, “On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.”

Republicans complained this text was doctored by Schiff because he added a period and left off the rest of the text. The Federalist, a right-wing goon publication, expressed outrage that Schiff would misrepresent the words of Jim Jordan in such a manner, inadvertently revealing the sender of the text was Jim Jordan. Republicans are stupid. It’s like Jim Jordan was robbing a bank with pantyhose on his head and one of his colleagues called him by his name. “Hey, Jim Jordan…you with the pantyhose on your head, did you get all the 20s?”

I think that image will be in my head all day now.

Schiff, or whoever prepared the graphic, should have added an ellipsis instead of a period at the end of the text. But, so what? The committee admitted there was more to the text, but they only felt the need to show the first paragraph in the graphic because the text was long. The context was not removed. Jim Jordan’s intention was to throw out a democratically-held election and install a dictator. That’s the intention in the first, second, and third paragraphs.

Also, next time you hear them screaming about this “doctoring” of the text, take note they’re not saying what was doctored. Also, try to remember all the times Republicans have taken someone’s words out of context.

The full text reads, “On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all — in accordance with guidance from founding father Alexander Hamilton and judicial precedence. ‘No legislative act,’ wrote Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 78, ‘contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.’

“The court in Hubbard v. Lowe reinforced this truth: ‘That an unconstitutional statute is not a law at all is a proposition no longer open to discussion.’ 226 F. 135, 137 (SDNY 1915), appeal dismissed, 242 U.S. 654 (1916). Following this rationale, an unconstitutionally appointed elector, like an unconstitutionally enacted statute, is no elector at all.”

See? That’s a long as text. Plus, the Alexander-Hamilton argument is pure bullshit.

Jim Jordan, the king of deflectors, is screaming about the period being added instead of the dash. They’re claiming this is “evidence tampering.” Others have called for Schiff to be “indicted for conspiracy to commit treason by doctoring evidence.” Mark Levin, a Fox News goon, said California’s Supreme Court should consider revoking Schiff’s law license.

This is a great distraction from the fact Jim Jordan advocated for throwing out electoral votes. Jim Jordan got a Juris Doctor from Capital University Law School, but he never took the bar exam. It’s a good thing too because if we’re disbarring lawmakers for lying…yeah. Jim Jordan has told a few.

Right now, the only political leader who lost his law license I can think of is Rudy Giuliani, you know…because he’s a liar. And, he was telling the same lies as Jim Jordan.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy originally attempted to put Jordan on the January 6 Committee which would have been like putting Kyle Rittenhouse on his own jury. Eh, same results.

Now, everyone’s questioning if a House committee can issue a subpoena for a member of the House. Yes, they can. Jordan has said he has “nothing to hide,” so the committee is asking him, along with fellow House Goon Scott Perry, who’s refusing to cooperate. If he has nothing to hide, Jim Jordan will proudly prance his lying ass before the committee and tell the truth (BWAHAHAHAHA) about everything he knows concerning the insurrection on January 6, 2021.

The committee should subpoena these guys and if they refuse the subpoenas, then they have invalidated every future committee they serve on should they regain the majority. Let’s pretend for a moment their Benghazi hearings didn’t already do that.

If the MAGAt goons continue to defy subpoenas, then they should be referred to the Justice Department for criminal contempt. I’d like to say I wouldn’t lose any sleep if Jim Jordan goes to jail, but that’s not true. I’ll lose a lot of sleep while lying awake giggling my ass off.

The Democrats need to stop playing softball with these treasonous Republicans. Let’s send some people to jail. These guys tried to overthrow the government and install an unelected dictator. They tried to throw out an election. They’re members of Congress. They should be trying to protect the nation, not destroy it.

And while they’re at it, they need to issue subpoenas for more House members like Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louie Gohmert, and Lauren Boebert, who had given tours to the white nationalist terrorists days before the attack and was texting locations of House members during the attack.

They need to subpoena some senators too, most notably Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz.

They need to subpoena additional goons like Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and everyone who was around Trump on January 6. This includes Don Jr and Ivanka. Line ’em all up.

Don’t let these seditious criminals tell you how to investigate their crimes.

And when these Republicans threaten revenge when they regain the House, if you go after their crimes, ignore them. You can ignore them because right now, they’re telling you it’s OK to ignore subpoenas and the law.

Seriously, trying to overthrow the government should be illegal…even for members of the government.

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.

Constitutional Irony


CjonesRGB12212021

I had this idea a couple months ago and put it aside. I may have even included it in one of my batches of roughs, so it’s possible you’ve already seen this idea. But after passing it over, I decided to save it for another day. I knew it was going to come up. I knew one of the Trump goons would testify and invoke his Fifth Amendment rights. Yesterday, that happened.

First, in case you’re a dum-dum, then you need to know what rights and protections are included in the Fifth Amendment. There are five. It gives you the right to a fair trial. It gives you the right to a jury trial. It protects you from double jeopardy (can’t be tried for the same crime twice). It protects you from the government taking your property without compensation. Finally, it protects you from self-incrimination.

Self-incrimination is when you open your mouth and rat on yourself, often unintentionally. If you’re stupid, you really want to plead the 5th. Pleading the fifth is what you do instead of answering a question from a cop, or in a courtroom setting…or while testifying before a Congressional hearing.

Instead of refusing to appear before the January 6th committee like his fellow Trump goons, Mark Meadows and Steve Bannon, Roger Stone chose to testify before the committee.

Roger Stone was Nixon’s fixer and then became Trump’s. He’s a dirtbag. He likes being a dirtbag. He recently offered to freeze his sperm for far-right racist democracy-hating conspiracy theorist antiSemitic Islamophobic Laura Loomer, who’s written hate pieces for Infowars and has been banned from everything from social media platforms to food apps (Uber probably won’t deliver to her house), Laura Loomer. She even got banned from CPAC. She called the 2019 Women’s March a “Nazi Organization,” and was taken away by security while shouting, “What about the Jews?” She once protested a Mexican restaurant for it being a Mexican restaurant.

Apparently, Roger Stone and Laura Loomer are planning to make the anti-Christ. There is a demon sperm! But how icky is Laura Loomer if even Roger Stone refuses to crawl on top of her?

Also, the next time the federal government has to raid Roger Stone’s house (yes, the next time because it’s happened before), I highly recommend, implore even, that the search team wear hazmat suits, maybe double up even. I would rather wade through flaming toxic sewage laced with ketchup while listening to Nickelback than have to handle Roger Stone’s frozen sperm. The only element more dangerous than Roger Stone’s frozen sperm is Roger Stone’s unfrozen sperm. If that shit’s in Florida, then we might just have to eradicate the entire state of Florida.

Stone testified before the committee for less than 90 minutes. It was that quick because he refused to answer any questions as he pleaded his Fifth Amendment right not to self-incriminate. And, that is his right.

Stone came out of the hearing lashing out at the committee. He said he invoked his Fifth Amendment right because “I am fully aware of the House Democrats’ long history of fabricating perjury charges.”

That’s a funny comment coming from a goon who committed perjury before Congress. Stone was convicted in federal court of obstructing Congress by lying about his efforts to contact WikiLeaks on behalf of the Trump 2016 presidential campaign. The Justice Department, Trump’s Justice Department, successfully argued Stone lied to Congress to protect Trump. Then, William Barr took over Trump’s Justice Department and tried to drop everything against Stone AFTER he was convicted. And then Donald Trump pardoned Roger Stone.

Yesterday, Roger Stone told the press, “I stress yet again that I was not on the Ellipse. I did not march to the Capitol. I was not at the Capitol and any claim, assertion, or even implication that I knew about or was involved in any way whatsoever with the illegal and politically counter-productive activities of January 6, is categorically false.”

Roger Stone is a liar. He’s always been a liar and he always will be a liar.

Roger Stone was in the capital on January 6. He hired (or they volunteered) Oath Keepers, a white nationalist hate group involved in the attack on the Capitol, as his personal security. Roger Stone promoted his appearance at a “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6 and raised money for it. Before the march to the Capitol, he stated his purpose there was to “lead a march to the Capitol.”

It’s like Austin Powers’ Swedish-Made Penis Enlarger Pump. “This is my bag, baby.” Committing an insurrection with white nationalists in order to overturn a democratic and fair election in order to destroy democracy and install a fascist unelected dictator is Roger Stone’s bag baby.

And that’s where the irony comes in. Roger Stone, like a coward, uses the very Constitution he tried to destroy to protect him.

I want our Constitution to give Roger Stone every right he’s entitled to…and I want the laws within the constitution to put Roger Stone, and all his fellow goons, in prison. There’s no pardon for Roger Stone this time.

Also, go watch The Omen. Don’t say I did not warn you.
