Trump Shutdown

Some Garzonging Advice


cjones01032019

There are roughly 800,000 federal employees affected by Donald Trump’s government shutdown and will have to wait to receive back pay if any at all. Since Trump’s shutdown is expected to last into the new year (in case you’re a Republican, that’s beyond the first of the month), many are wondering how they’re going to make rent and pay other bills. Fortunately for them, the Office of Personnel Management has tweeted some advice. Barter.

That’s right. Barter. Tell your landlord that you have been furloughed due to Donald Trump shutting down the government over a racist vanity project and that you’re willing to do some chores to reduce your rent. I’m sure your landlord will be understanding, especially if he’s a Mexican-hating wall enthusiast, and will promptly find some toilets for you to unclog.

The OPM says it can’t offer legal advice on this matter, so those furloughed should consult with an attorney. How are they supposed to pay an attorney if they can’t pay rent? Of course, a lot of federal workers are restricted from taking outside work and would have to discuss the matter with their supervisor, who has probably also been furloughed. If it’s your job to answer the phone at your agency then there’s probably nobody there to answer when you call it yourself.

The bartering advice is so bad; it makes you think some idiot appointed the head of the OPM. Who appoints the directors of federal agencies? Oh, yeah. Donald Trump, who claims federal employees are fine with the shutdown because they want the border wall, and most who aren’t being paid are Democrats.

What a boob.

Stocking Stuffer


cjones12302018

Here’s a Christmas day cartoon for you that doesn’t have anything to do with Christmas.

Since taking office, Trump has boasted about the performance of the stock market, ignoring it was a trend that began under President Obama. Now that it’s crashing, the only thing Trump has to figure out is how to blame Obama.

Is it Trump’s fault that the market keeps going down? Maybe not entirely, but he’s not helping. Some of the blame does land squarely on his shoulders.

He’s enacted a trade war, increased tariffs (which are taxes), increased the deficit and shut down the government over a petty issue for the sake of his ego. Wall Street is also uneasy by chaos within Trump’s staff as the market slid further with the resignation of the last adult in the administration. Trump’s tweets demonstrating his confusion, inability to understand simple and complex matters and tirades don’t help calm jittery nerves on Wall Street. Yesterday, he tweeted that the Fed didn’t have “a feel for the Market, they don’t understand necessary Trade Wars or Strong Dollars or even Democrat Shutdowns over Borders.” Maybe Wall Street freaked out over his use of capitalization.

Wall Street probably saw the video of Trump stating that he’d proudly shut down the government and wouldn’t blame Democrats, so I’m sure they understand this is a Trump shutdown. Stocks fell even further after Trump’s tweets.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin sent a tweet that was supposed to calm Wall Street but had more of an effect of everybody walk out of the theater calmly and don’t worry about the bomb that will explode any second now.

Mnuchin said he had contacted the chief executives of six major banks to ensure that their operations were running smoothly and that they had “ample liquidity available for lending.”

Analysts and economists have not cited a lack of cash for lending as a significant reason for the downturn, but after Mnuchin’s tweet, now they’re kinda freaking out about it. It’s like waking up your kids at 4:00 am to assure them the bank isn’t about to repossess the house, now go back to sleep. Mnuchin just made the stocks fall even faster.

Despite Trump’s best efforts, the economy is still in good shape. The nation’s faith in the economy isn’t based on Trump’s job performance. What would probably help the stock market the most would be if Trump and his cabinet of idiots would stop talking. Go to the movies or something. Just ignore the stock market and the economy. The least Trump does the better.

Trump has complained about bias against him from Congress, the media, celebrities, and even complained about laws that allow Saturday Night Live to make fun of him. But the thing is if everybody hates you maybe it’s not just them. Maybe you truly are an asshole. Maybe you do suck at your job. Maybe you are a horrible person. When you tweet out on Christmas Eve that you’re all alone and write “poor me,” don’t expect a ton of sympathy. Especially from anyone who has a 401K, or had one before last week.

Kurt Cobain wrote in Territorial Pissings, “Just because you’re paranoid don’t mean they’re not after you.” There are plenty of people after Trump, but the laughter he’s hearing at his expense isn’t just his imagination either.

What Donald Trump hasn’t realized yet is the reason so much is going wrong is because he’s a lousy president.

Oh, and Merry Christmas.

Rush For A Dumpster Fire


cjones12292018

After telling Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer that he’d be “proud to shut down the government” and he wouldn’t blame him, is anyone surprised Donald Trump is now blaming the Democrats for his shutdown?

On December 11, sitting in the Oval Office with Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Trump said, “I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck. … I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it.” After shutting down the government, Trump tweeted on December 21, “Democrats now own the shutdown!” It’s as if video doesn’t exist.

I don’t believe anyone is surprised Trump lied. In fact, I think we all expected he’d blame Democrats, especially after he said he wouldn’t. Trump lies about everything, mostly about the wall he wants on our southern border, starting with “Mexico will pay for it.”

A wall on our southern border will never exist. It’s not necessary, logical, or feasible. It won’t cut down on illegal immigration as most here illegally entered the nation legally. How is a wall going to stop that? The wall is just a racist vanity project to drum up Trump’s withering base of sycophantic supporters. After telling his supporters that Mexico would pay for the wall, he’s now telling them Democrats won’t let him make you pay for it. For some reason, his base is upset they won’t be forced to pay for what they were promised Mexico was supposed to pay for. Now, many in his base are contributing to a GoFundMe to pay for the wall. That might be a great idea. Why should those of us who knew it was a con have to pay for Trump’s lie and broken campaign promise? Is Trump that great of a conman or is his base just that stupid?

How did we get to this shutdown crisis? Because Trump is a toddler having a temper tantrum. The Senate was set to approve a spending deal this week without the $5 billion Trump wants to kick-start his wall project. Trump was prepared to sign it, but after being goaded by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingraham, he changed his mind and forced a government shutdown when it’s not necessary.

Trump realized if he gave up on the wall funding then the ruse is over. His base just might discover there was never any real intention to build a wall. In case you’re not smart enough to have known it was a con job back when he first proposed it during his presidential campaign, his phone call with Mexican president Peña Nieto should have made the con clear.

Shortly after taking office, Trump told Nieto about the wall, “Believe it or not, this is the least important thing that we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important talk about.” He then told Nieto, “The fact is we are both in a little bit of a political bind because I have to have Mexico pay for the wall. I have to. I have been talking about it for a two-year period, and the reason I say they are going to pay for the wall is because Mexico has made a fortune out of the stupidity of US trade representatives.”

He then proposed, “They are going to say, ‘Who is going to pay for the wall, Mr. President?’ to both of us, and we should both say, ‘We will work it out.’ It will work out in the formula somehow. As opposed to you saying, ‘We will not pay’ and me saying, ‘We will not pay.'” This was Trump begging Mexico to help him con his base.

Trump was about to fold and compromise with Congress until right-wing troglodytes on the radio threatened to expose the con.

Rush Limbaugh said, “It’s a textbook example of what the drive-by media calls compromise. Trump gets nothing, and the Democrats get everything, including control of the House.”

Ann Coulter said on a podcast that Trump’s White House would become “a joke presidency who scammed the American people” if he didn’t build the wall, adding that “he’ll have no legacy whatsoever.” Trump was so upset, he unfollowed her on Twitter. But, he caved into Coulter and Rush.

Donald Trump listens to Rush Limbaugh but not his Secretary of Defense. This is the madness and what Republican Senator Bob Corker called the “tyranny of talk radio hosts.” Forget what’s best for America, what does Rush Limbaugh think?

Trump didn’t just do Rush’s bidding. He called him to stop the bleeding with his base. On his show, Limbaugh said, “The president got word to me 20 minutes ago that if it comes back to him without money, if whatever happens in the House and Senate comes back to him with no allocation of $5 billion for the wall, then he’s going to veto it” It’s alarming the president is least concerned about the nation and more worried about what Limbaugh wants.

Trump doesn’t care about this nation. He doesn’t care about the border. He cares about Trump. He cares about his brand.

For all Trump cares, the nation and her people can burn in a dumpster just so long as his brand comes out unscathed.

Nancy’s Wall


cjones12172018

Donald Trump, the great negotiator, negotiated himself into a box yesterday.

Trump told Senator Chuck Schumer that if he doesn’t get what he wants for funding a border wall with Mexico, that he would shut the government down and take all the blame for it. He said, on camera, that he wouldn’t blame Schumer or the Democrats, and he’d take all the blame. He also said he would be “proud” to shut the government down for border security.

The nation doesn’t like government shutdowns, especially around Christmas. In the past, both parties blamed each other for shutdowns even though nobody wins them except Bill Clinton. Now, Democrats can refuse to fund the wall, let Trump shut down the government, and watch public scorn land on him. Trump gave Democrats little reason to give him funding for the wall.

Publicly, Republicans responded by saying they didn’t want a shutdown, and they hoped the negotiations would continue. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell described the discussions in the Oval Office between Trump, Schumer, and Pelosi as “spirited.” If Republicans are saying that in public then they’re probably screaming behind closed doors.

One administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Trump appeared upset after leaving the meeting, flicking a folder and sending papers flying out. A staffer told the Los Angeles Times after Schumer and Pelosi left, the West Wing sprang into “damage-control mode,” adding, “The aftermath of that meeting was not pretty.”

And you wonder why no reasonable person wants to be his Chief of Staff.

Trump invited the Democrats into a trap. The setting was before cameras where Trump feels he has the edge. The Democrats even offered to take the discussion private to avoid the theatrics, but Trump refused, citing “transparency.” Unfortunately, if your trap hinges on your being more intelligent and more prepared than your opponents, and you’re neither, you’re going to fall into your own trap.

Reality TV is not reality. Reality is what Chuck and Nancy delivered each time Trump lied. He lied about having Republican support in the House for the wall (which they haven’t voted to fund over the past two years). Trump lied eight times that construction on the wall has started. He claimed Mexico would pay for the wall by paying higher prices for American goods in the “New Nafta.” The Democrats called him out on his lies. The reality is that Trump is not going to get funding for his stupid wall.

Trump is not used to being corrected or stood up to. In classic bully fashion, when confronted, he backed down.

Trump attempted some mansplaining and got schooled. He said Pelosi was “in a situation where it’s not easy for her to talk right now,” because of her race for Speaker. Pelosi calmly hit back, with, “Mr. President, please don’t characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting as the leader of the House Democrats, who just won a big victory.”

Later, she got her digs in. She said, “You get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you.” But the statement that will truly sting Trump the most was, “It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him.” Pelosi “smocked” Trump. The only thing that would have made it better would have been one of the Democrats referring to Trump as “Individual One.”

Any doubt that still existed before this that Pelosi is the one to take on Trump is now extinguished. Jules and Vincent couldn’t have walked out of the cafe any cooler at the end of Pulp Fiction than Pelosi walked out of the White House yesterday.

Democrats have put two offers on the table, neither of which has wall funding: $1.6 billion in “fencing” along the southern border or a continuation of last year’s spending levels for the Department of Homeland Security, about $1.3 billion. Trump is demanding $5 billion.

For Trump sycophants, they see Trump defending their interest by demanding that they pay for a campaign promise he broke. On the campaign trail, Trump promised Mexico would pay for the wall. At no point during the 2016 presidential campaign did Trump say American taxpayers would have to pay for his stupid, useless, racist border wall. Now, he’s telling his supporters they should be upset that Democrats won’t make them pay for it.

Democrats should not give Trump one cent for his wall. They also should not use Dreamers as a bargaining chip like they did earlier in the year. Don’t make Americans pay for Trump’s broken campaign promise, especially on something useless that’s only designed to appeal to a xenophobic, nationalistic, racist base.

And welcome to the new reality where Trump is not in control, and he might actually realize it. Trump is not a negotiator, intelligent, or even remotely competent for the presidency. Hopefully, Republicans start to realize it too.

Happy Trumpiversary


cjones01232018

Poor Donald Trump. It kinda makes your heart hurt for the big lovable lug. He would much rather be at Mar-a-Lago right now celebrating the first anniversary of his administration with billionaires and millionaires paying for the opportunity to tell him how great he is and kiss his ass. Instead, he has to remain in Washington during a government shutdown while hundreds of thousands of angry women are marching, cursing his name. Why are they cursing his name? Because he’s an asshole and he sucks. Where have you been for the past year…or twenty?

What sort of optics would it have been for Trump to complain Washington doesn’t work while he’s shaking his booty at one of his I-Smell-Terrific parties raising campaign funds? The optics are so terrible that I’m surprised he was convinced, at the last minute, not to go. Maybe Stephen Baby Goebbels Miller convinced him, as he’s been the one with the most sway in the White House recently. Nazis are fine people, your authority will not be questioned, kick out dreamers, don’t go to that party.

Just how appropriate is it that Trump’s first anniversary coincides with a government shutdown? What did you expect from a guy with five bankruptcies and multiple failed business failures who promised to run the government the way he runs his businesses? Hell, the man’s business of giving business advice went out of business. Hello?

The man who said presidenting would be easy isn’t making it look easy. This kind of stuff doesn’t just happen. I’m sure there’s some karma to it, though that’s working way too slow for my taste. But, shutdowns come from failed leadership. Trump is a failed president. You can’t put issues off for months, make deals, make promises, and then break all of them, and then claim the high ground. You can’t blame the party out of power when the government doesn’t work. You especially can’t blame the party out of power when you promised you would make it work, and we’d get tired of “winning.”

Trump promised he would sign on to bipartisan agreements for the Dreamers, and he broke that promise. Tell me this: With regards to the shutdown, what exactly has Trump proposed that’s bipartisan? What has he given to the other side? The thing that dismays me the most is that Mexico is not paying for the wall, and we’re supposed to be angry at Democrats.

Trump’s anniversary isn’t the only one happening this weekend. I mentioned the women marching in Washington. It’s not just D.C.

At this time last year, Millions of women marched in protest against Trump and his agenda, not just in the United States, but worldwide. Last Saturday and Sunday, the march was commemorated with even more marches.

The march is going from women demonstrating to registering people to vote, to women running as candidates. Last year in Virginia, first-time candidates, women, unseated incumbent male Republicans for the state’s General Assembly. Women, black women, in particular, sent a Democrat from Alabama into the United State’s Senate.

Republican males scoffed last year. They’re still scoffing. That’s OK. Let them make their “I have to make my own dinner” jokes. If they’re not trying to understand it by now, then they can continue to make their sexist jokes while Republicans lose their majority in Washington.

Speaking of not getting “it,” Trump responded to the Women’s March with, “Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!” That’s some serious stupid.

The future doesn’t only belong to white males. It belongs to women, blacks, Latinos, gays, transgenders, etc. The sooner we get there, the better.

Creative notes: I woke up early Sunday morning and did a few accounting chores for my business. I planned to watch the NFL championships games later and decided to start drawing this cartoon around 1:00 p.m., skip the first game (because the Patriots always win) and go out, drink a beer, eat some wings, and watch the Vikings/Eagles game.

My original idea was to make the bulk of this cartoon dark grey, with only the balloons, women, and Trump’s tie colored. I did that and I wasn’t happy with it. I changed a few things and changed a few more and next thing I knew, seven hours went by. Seven hours? Who does that?

I don’t think I apply myself to my work for seven hours because I’m more committed, focused, or better than other cartoonists. I think I do it because I suck. Anyway, I finished the cartoon and went out and made it to the bar at halftime. After the game, I came home and redid the coloring. I’m still not totally happy with it, but I’m done. It actually took over 12 hours to do this cartoon, which I thought I’d whip out in a couple of hours.

I gotta stop thinking about it so much.

Trumpie’s Choice


cjones01222018

Republicans are blaming Democrats for the shutdown despite the fact they control the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. Donald Trump even said in 2013, “A shutdown falls on the President’s lack of leadership. He can’t even control his party and get people together in a room. A shutdown means the President is weak.”

The Republicans are complaining that the Democrats are holding the government hostage for “illegals.” Trump said publicly last week that he would sign a bipartisan agreement and “take the heat” for it. He lied. After a bipartisan deal was brought to him, he rejected it.

The situation of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), the program that allows immigrants to remain in this nation who were brought here as children, became a crisis after Trump revoked Obama’s Executive Order allowing them to stay. These are people who are basically Americans, brought here by no fault of their own, and contribute to society. These are not lawbreakers or criminals. Trump is the one who inserted DACA into the government showdown.

The Republicans say they will address DACA before March when they’ll be deported or forced into hiding if nothing is done, but in case you haven’t been paying attention, you can’t trust the Republicans. Trump has lied daily since he started his campaign, and his words and actions from this past week alone, from breaking his promise on DACA and saying he didn’t want people from “shithole countries” and wanted more white people from Norway, shows what sort of negotiating partner the Democrats are dealing with.

While Republicans in government say they want to work out an agreement to allow the Dreamers to stay, every Republican you talk to on social media talks about kicking them all out. If the base wants to screw them over, then what will a president, who only appeals to his base, do?

If DACA shouldn’t be a part of this, then Trump’s border wall shouldn’t be a part of the budget. Trump wants $20 billion for the wall. Let me refresh your memory: Trump’s primary campaign promise, the message he gave when he announced his candidacy after riding down that escalator, was that Mexico will pay for this wall. You and I are not Mexico, yet that’s who he wants to pay for the wall.

Democrats are willing to give Trump some funding for the wall. Personally, I don’t think they should give him one cent. I don’t want to pay for his broken campaign promises, even if his sycophants do. Let them pay for his racist wall.

Republicans don’t want DACA in the deal, but they do want to fund Trump’s broken promises. Tell me again why we can trust them?

Republicans threw CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program) into the deal, offering to fund it for six years. The program has bipartisan support, somewhat. While they point out the urgency for funding CHIP, they overlook that it ran out last September and there was no GOP urgency at that time. Why? Because CHIP is being used against DACA. Republicans are trying to force Democrats to choose between children’s health and Dreamers being allowed to stay in the country, which Trump already promised. But, we’ve seen what becomes of Trump’s promises.

Trump also wants to hold the Dreamers hostage to get full funding for his wall, which again, he said Mexico would pay for.

This is the first time since the Carter Administration that there’s been a government shutdown while one party controlled the Presidency, House, and Senate. There were five shutdowns and they were all about abortion. The Republicans should own this.

The Republicans have broken promises, and they’re holding children as hostages. Why should we give them our trust? Why should we accept the choices they are offering? This isn’t about politics. This is about people.

In 2013, Trump said a shutdown means the president is weak. Trump is weak, and he’s proven he’s a shitty negotiator. You don’t negotiate in good faith by holding children hostage, making people choose one or the other, while you continue to break promises after promises. Democrats need to show Trump they’re the honest ones, and they’re not weak. Don’t give him a cent for his wall and don’t sign a deal hoping he’ll keep a promise later. I don’t want to hang the future of 800,000 Dreamers on the hope Donald Trump keeps his word.

We can’t trust him.
