Trump

Tucker’s Boy


I heard someone on a Sunday morning news show say there hasn’t been an increase in white supremacist groups, but that they’ve been given credibility and legitimized. No shit, Sherlock. But maybe with all the big-time support from major players, like Donald Trump and the entire gaggle of idiots at Fox News, perhaps they have increased recruitment for hate groups. There was no Qanon before Trump.

The number one terrorist threat in this nation is angry whiny little-dick-suffering white guys. Most terrorist attacks are committed by these goons. This has only increased during the Trump era. Who heard of Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, and Boogaloo Boys before Donald Trump occupied the White House? And when you point out to conservatives that white nationalists are the number one terror threat in this nation, they get upset. They claim they’re not racists but they’re very defensive and protective of white hate groups.

When a black man drove a truck through a parade killing people and another shot passengers on the subway in Brooklyn, I had right-wing trolls comment on my various platforms that these attacks were proof white supremacy isn’t the number one terror threat. But these goons don’t even recognize white nationalist terrorist attacks as acts of terrorism. Case in point: The January 6 attack on the Capitol building to overturn an election that many of them say was just a bunch of tourists exercising their freedom of speech.

Not only can’t they see white nationalist terrorism, but they also can’t even see white nationalism. Donald Trump said he didn’t know anything about Qanon except that they love their country. He couldn’t tell the difference between anti-racism protesters and the Nazis chanting “Jews will not replace us” in Charlottesville in 2017, even after the Nazis killed Heather Heyer, an innocent anti-racism protester. And on the top-rated “news show” in the nation, its host, Tucker Carlson, asks, “What is racism?”

Tucker Carlson’s show isn’t just the top-rated in the nation, beating its competition by a wide margin, but it’s the most popular show with white nationalists. David Duke, a former Grand Wizard, says Tucker speaks for the racists. And with promoting the Great Replacement theory while saying he doesn’t know what racism is, he is doing the bidding of racists.

Tucker has been talking about the bogus conspiracy theory for years that white people in this nation are being replaced by non-white immigrants. They believe this is a Democratic Party strategy to eventually erase white people and have a non-white Democratic Party-supporting voting majority. They use this shit to justify changing laws to make it harder for non-white people to vote and to advance other conspiracy theories. White racists truly believe this shit.

And just like what happened in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015 where nine black parishioners were killed inside a church, we had another young racist engage in a mass shooting to kill black people.

Yesterday, a young man drove over 200 miles to kill black people. He was a believer in the Great Replacement theory that Tucker peddles on his show. The white supremacist didn’t hide his intentions or motivation. He wrote a 180-page manifesto of his hate and intentions and had the “n-word” written on the barrel of his assault rifle. He shot 13 people, killing ten.

This 18-year-old kid threw his own life away while destroying many others and took credit for the violence in the name of white supremacy. This is Tucker’s boy. Tucker Carlson needs to own this.

The writer of the manifesto plotted his actions down to the minute, included diagrams of his path through the store, and said he specifically targeted the Tops Markets location on Jefferson Avenue because its zip code has the highest percentage of Black people close enough to where he lives.

The manifesto shows the shooter has been planning the attack for the past few years and became more serious since January. He whines about “white genocide” taking place in America and proudly brags about his racist and anti-Semitic views. I guess if he had a talk show on Fox News, he’d also be saying, “What is racism?” with a wink.

The manifesto writer conducted a Q&A with himself where he said he supports “those that wish for a future for white children and the existence of our people.” This is not the first white supremacist mass shooting in the Trump era. This isn’t the first with a manifesto. And if Fuckers like Tucker keep pushing their racist agenda on primetime television while Donald Trump conducts hate rallies where the all-white crowd chants “send them back,” it won’t be the last.

The shooter live-streamed his white nationalist terrorist attack on Twitch, which I guess is another hangout for white racist goons in addition to 4chan, Gab, and Truth Social. But these goons don’t need the dark web anymore because the number-one “news show” in the nation promotes their racist theories. White supremacy is now mainstream.

What does it say about America that its top-rated news show is hosted by a white supremacist? Tucker doesn’t have to just look into a mirror to see white supremacy. He can just look at the white supremacist shooter who killed ten people in Buffalo.

If Tucker Carlson had a son, he’d look like the Buffalo white supremacist shooter.

It’ll be interesting to hear what Tucker talks about Monday night on his show. I predict he will not own this.

Ultra-MAGA


So there’s a MAGA lunatic running for the United States Senate in the Republican primaries. You’re probably thinking to yourself, “they’re all lunatics.” And you’re right. So, what makes this MAGA lunatic different from all the other lunatics?

The only real difference between Kathy Barnette and other Trumpers is that she’s black, but I don’t think that’s why they’re opposed to her. Usually, Republicans LOVE finding a black friend, which to them is a black person who hates black people as much as they do. They come in handy and can be used to prove they’re not racists (I can’t be racist if I have a black friend). But they don’t want to be friends with Kathy Barnette. Republicans, including the MAGA king himself, Donald Trump, are afraid if she wins that they’ll basically be forfeiting the seat to Democrats. But, a lot of people, myself included, thought the same thing about Trump, who became their orange friend.

So, what’s so weird about Kathy Barnette? It’s not like she’s proposed something as outrageous as taxing the poor, like Florida MAGA goon Senator and Voldemort lookalike Rick Scott has done. President Joe Biden has used this proposal to point out “ultra MAGA.” And nobody can be less qualified for office or as stupid as Donald Trump.

Tweets have been revealed by Barnette where she states, “Just confronted a Muslim,” and another asking for prayers for her and her children because she was about to board a flight with a lesbian on it, which makes two things Republicans don’t want to see on commercial flights, face masks and lesbians. But Republicans are already homophobes and Islamophobes. Donald Trump proposed a Muslim ban as a candidate and enacted it as president (sic). We couldn’t elect a bigger hater to federal office than Donald Trump, even if we elected David Duke, Steve Bannon, or Stephen Miller.

Kathy Barnette believes the election lie, is pals with the MyPillow fucker and Steve Bannon (which finally gives both of them a black friend), went to Washington, DC on January 6 to take part in the terrorist attack, and still hasn’t refused to concede she lost a race for a House seat two years ago. She is just as MAGA as the rest of them. She should be at Mar-a-Lago posing for photo ops with Donald Trump right alongside Kevin McCarthy and Kyle Rittenhouse. Is the issue that she’s not the chosen one? There are three candidates for the seat in the GOP primary and polls have them tied when you include the margin for error.

Personally, I hope she wins because she probably will hand the seat to the Democrats. I also hope Eric Greitens, the ultra-MAGA fucker in Missouri wins.

Greitens is a former governor who resigned in disgrace. He’s been accused by his ex-wife of spousal abuse, that he tied her up and blindfolded her then forced her to have sex with him in a basement. Most Republicans are avoiding the guy but Trump hasn’t endorsed anyone yet in the 21-field of candidates. But, the man accused of abuse has received support from Steve Bannon, Rudy Giuliani, and Donald Trump Jr.

Since the start of the Trump era, the GOP usually goes for the vilest people they can find. These people usually endorse pedophiles even while accusing Democrats of being “groomers.” There have been mixed results from Trump endorsements this year as well giving one candidate a landslide win in West Virginia against an incumbent who brought home the bacon for the state, and a huge loss to a Trumper in Nebraska.

This is how fucked up the Republican Party is: They’re running commercials in Pennsylvania lying about Kathy Barnette. Why would they need to lie about her? Can’t they just point out she’s a conspiracy-believing nutjob like Marjorie Taylor Greene in addition to being extremely bigoted and stupid? No, that would make more Republicans vote for her. What they’re telling people is that she supports equality, Black Lives Matter, wants a statue built for President Obama, and chews with her mouth closed. Ouch. That’ll hurt you in a Republican primary that appeals to mouth-breathing racist Qanon fucknuts.

Unfortunately for Republicans, they just now decided Barnette is a threat which left them less than a week to destroy her. If she wins the primary, Republicans will rally behind her. They’ll do the same if Greitens wins the Missouri primary. Remember how Republicans once said they’ll never support Donald Trump before they all started building shrines to their cult god?

The Republican Party is a cult that consists of bigots, liars, and conspiracy theory peddlers who have to cheat to win. So it’s very enjoyable to watch them beat themselves.

Ultra-MAGA will destroy this nation…just like original formula MAGA.

Concrete Evidence


Lake Mead is a Colorado River reservoir just 30 minutes outside Las Vegas. Former Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said Monday. “It’s not a bad place to dump a body.” Well, now it is.

Climate Change is an international crisis and it’s affecting everyone, whether they know it or not. Republicans in fucknut Florida claim it doesn’t exist while their state is slowly going underwater. In other locations, lakes and rivers are drying up. In the United States, we’re slowly losing Tulare Lake, Salton Sea, Pyramid Lake, Owens Lake, Mono Lake, and Lake Mead. Lake Mead is starting to reveal secrets.

The water level in Lake Mead has dropped more than 170 feet since 1983. Mayor Goodman is a lawyer who used to have Vegas mobsters as clients, and he said they were always very interested in “climate control,” which was mob code for keeping the lake level up and bodies down in their watery graves. Two sets of human remains have emerged in Lake Mead over the past week.

One of the bodies was found in a barrel and authorities say the person was shot.

Michael Green, a University of Nevada, Las Vegas history professor whose father dealt blackjack for decades at the Stardust and the Showboat, said, “If the lake goes down much farther, it’s very possible we’re going to have some very interesting things surface. I wouldn’t bet the mortgage that we’re going to solve who killed Bugsy Siegel, but I would be willing to bet there are going to be a few more bodies.”

Las Vegas was founded by the mafia with Bugsy Siegel being a driving force behind it. This isn’t a whispered-about secret. There’s a mob museum in Las Vegas. What was once a dried-up little desert town founded in 1905 started to grow with the construction of the nearby Hoover Dam, reduced residency for divorce, and the legalization of casino gambling, all in 1931. Now the U.S. Census predicts Nevada (in case you’re a Republican, that’s where Las Vegas is located) will be the fastest-growing state for the next two decades and by 2030, Las Vegas will have over four million residents. Right now, the population of the city is a little over 640,000.

The mafia is responsible for the creation of the nation’s most popular gambling destination, but the days of celebrity mobsters may be over. The bodies people are finding are from decades ago and while there are predictions more bodies will be found as Lake Mead dries up, most won’t be from mob hits. Sorry to ruin it for you.

Sure, a body in a barrel is a pretty good sign the mob was responsible, but most bodies may be from other murders or just swimming and boating accidents. Professor Green pointed out, “People will talk about this for the right reasons and the wrong reasons. They’re going to think we’re going to solve every mob murder. In fact, we may see some. But it’s also worth remembering that the mob did not like murders to take place in the Las Vegas area because they did not like bad publicity going out under the Las Vegas dateline.” Ever hear the expression, “Don’t shit where you eat?”

While discovering bodies in barrels is intriguing and adds to mob folklore, it’s the wrong focus on a lake evaporating. The real focus here should be Climate Change.

The mob will never kill as many people as Climate Change kills, which is blamed for over 250,000 deaths annually.

A grandmother dying from heatstroke in August because she can’t afford air conditioning may not be as glamorous as goons shooting Bugsy Siegel in the back of his head in Beverly Hills, but it’s the death we should be talking about. We still don’t know who killed Bugsy or why, but we know who’s killing grandma. Not to mention that cities like Las Vegas are having to find alternative sources of water.

Elon’s Dumpster


When Elon Musk talks about free speech, I wonder if he understands what that is. Coordinating and strategizing with Nazis and making death threats is not free speech. You also don’t have the freedom to accuse someone of being a pedophile just because they disagree with you. Also, losing a social media account doesn’t mean you lost your freedom of speech because Twitter isn’t the only place humans are allowed to express themselves. Twitter is not a government platform.

But, I think Elon understands perfectly well that spreading conspiracy theories and instigating a white nationalist terrorist attack to install a fascist dictator who lost an election isn’t free speech. I believe he knows he’s full of shit. What makes me believe that was his post about the Democratic Party becoming more extreme thus making Elon side more with Republicans, who are making it harder for black Americans to vote while boycotting a cartoon mouse. Nazis and MAGAts held two separate protests simultaneously against Disney last week in Florida, yet you couldn’t tell the two groups apart. But sure, Elon. It’s the Democrats who’ve gone extreme.

Now Elon is saying that as soon he gets his grubby short-fingered hands on Twitter, he’s going to allow Donald Trump to return. This is a threat to democracy.

Elon told an interviewer at an automobile conference that it was a mistake for Twitter to ban Trump after he tried to destroy democracy. The irony here is that Trump’s supporters believe removing Trump was an anti-democratic move for his attempt to destroy democracy.

Elon said, “I do think that it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice.” No, you egghead. He has a voice. Nobody took his voice away. Does Donald Trump let everyone at his rally have a turn at the microphone? If not, does that mean he’s not allowing everyone a voice? We are not entitled to use every platform.

If National Public Radio refuses my demands for airtime to give a two-hour diatribe against ketchup on hotdogs, they’re not taking away my freedom of speech. Elon’s logic says Donald Trump has taken away my right to swim if he doesn’t allow me to use the pool at Mar-a-Lago.

Elon expanded on his thoughts on Trump, saying, “He is now going to be on Truth Social, as will a large part of the right, in the United States, and so I think this could end up being, frankly, worse than having a single forum where everyone could debate. I guess the answer is that I would reverse the permanent ban.” Donald Trump has only made one post on Truth Social so far. Banning or reversing a ban on someone doesn’t prevent there from being more than one social media forum. Also, it’s not a bad thing if a large portion of the right-wing avoids Twitter. Who throws a party and gets sad that Nazis don’t show up? Who wants to bob for apples with Goebbels?

Free speech is a constitutional right. Speaking on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok, Instagram, MySpace, YouTube, etc, is a privilege. You can burn a privilege. Donald Trump burned a privilege by using Twitter in an attempt to destroy our democracy and have himself installed as an unelected dictator. It’s amazing we have people fighting to restore the account he used to try to destroy the government. It’s like giving a rapist Viagra.

Donald Trump claims he won’t return to Twitter if the ban is reversed, choosing instead to promote Truth Social, which he’s not using. But Trump is lying. Trump boycotting Twitter would be like Trump boycotting KFC. It’s not gonna happen. He’ll be back.

And when Trump comes back and is just one of the many changes Elon enacts to destroy the platform, millions will leave. I’m going to stay. Hell, It’s taken me over a decade to get over 12,000 followers. I’m not throwing that away. Also, someone needs to stick around and continue to fight the lies. The only way Elon is going to remove my voice from Twitter will be to ban me. As I understand it, he’s really big about blocking people so maybe removing his critics is next.

I would take it as a badge of honor if I was banned for telling the truth, like posting something about Elon having hair plugs. What? I have freedom of speech. If Donald Trump can claim he won an election he lost and retweet Nazis, I can call out Elon’s hair plugs.

Another Tome of Titillating Trump Tales


Mark Esper has a book on his brief time as Donald Trump’s Secretary of Defense, and the book contains some wild accusations…that are totally believable.

One of the accusations is that during a meeting in 2020, Donald Trump wanted to deploy 10,000 troops to the streets of Washington, DC, where Black Lives Matter was protesting against police brutality, and have them shot in the legs. The guy who teargassed Black Lives Matter protesters in order to stage a photo-op with an upside-down Bible and later had a photo-op with Kyle Rittenhouse to celebrate his acquittal after shooting and killing Black Lives Matter protesters said Esper is lying.

Esper also claims Trump called the protesters “fucking losers.” How is any of this difficult to believe?

Trump said, “This is a complete lie, and ten witnesses can back it up,” without providing any names of the supposed ten witnesses.

According to Esper, Trump also wanted to fire missiles into Mexico at suspected drug cartels. This was probably around the time Trump was coming up with amazing ideas like building moats on the border with Mexico and stocking them with alligators, snakes, and piranhas.

Trump also wanted to reactivate retired Admiral William McRaven, a former Navy SEAL commander, and US Army General Stanley McChrystal so he could court-martial them for criticizing him. He wanted to send people to jail for saying bad things about him. This isn’t hard to believe since Trump accused over 24 people of treason for criticizing him. He once claimed Democrats committed treason for not clapping during one of his ridiculous State of the Union speeches. According to Esper, Trump claimed the retired military men were “disloyal” to him. This is banana republic fascism with a combover.

Esper wrote that “people were removed from positions simply because the White House wanted to replace them with more hard-core Trump loyalists, regardless of qualifications.” We know this is true. We watched it in real-time for four years. Trump fired people for testifying against him before Congress, like Alexander Vindman. He removed security clearances for former officials like former CIA Director John Brennan. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for investigating him and even bragged to the Russians about it in the Oval Office, saying, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” He fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe hours before he was set to retire, thus trying to rob him of his pension and other benefits. McCabe later sued and won his pension and other benefits back. This was a move that costs taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal defense. Trump is petty, vindictive, a sociopath, and stupid.

Esper also claims that Trump goon and hair-in-a-can aficionado Stephen Baby Goebbels Miller wanted him to dispatch 250,000 troops to the southern border and have the military parade the severed head of a slain ISIS leader to scare off other terrorists.

Trump denies some of the claims while calling Mark Esper “Yesper,” as in he was so eager to please Trump, that he said “yes” to everything…while also being “ineffective.” Somehow to Trump, he was an ineffective ass kisser. But wasn’t everyone in the Trump administration an ass kisser? Weren’t they all Yespers?

Trump isn’t denying wanting to shoot rockets into Mexico. He gave a “no comment” to that one. He hasn’t denied other claims, like wanting to pull all our troops out of South Korea. What will Trump do if he runs for president again, and oh my god, actually wins?

If Trump becomes president (sic) again, he will pull troops out of South Korea, place them on our southern border, fire rockets into Mexico, try to build a moat full of piranhas, disband NATO, throw people into military prisons for saying bad things about it, ram through more unqualified fundamentalist judges, dismantle free elections, outlaw a free press, and help Vladimir Putin finally defeat Ukraine then invite him to the Oval Office for a bucket from KFC and Big Macs. This isn’t hyperbole because it’s what he tried to do the first time. If he gets a second shot, nobody’s going to be able to stop him because those who can speak out won’t so they can sell a book two years later.

Trump fired Esper right after he lost the 2020 election because it was his last chance to fire him. Esper should have spoken out before, like when Trump was talking about shooting protesters and firing rockets into Mexico.

Esper’s book is titled “A Sacred Oath.” But what oath is he talking about because the one he took to be Secretary of Defense was an oath to protect our nation, and he failed to do that in order to get a big payday.

Donald Trump is a lunatic and a vile sociopath. It’s sociopathic to let him get away with it.

Sieg Heil Ohio


Question: If you believe it’s even slightly possible that someone could become America’s Hitler, then why would you want that person’s endorsement?

In 2016, JD Vance, the hedgefund author guy who wrote “Hillbilly Elegy,” texted his old college roommate telling him he thought Trump “might be America’s Hitler.” The lesser evil he envisioned was that Trump “might be a cynical asshole like Nixon,” which he wrote, “wouldn’t be that bad and might even prove useful.”

So for JD Vance, it was between the man responsible for the Holocaust and the corrupt racist antisemitic president who was forced by his own party to resign in disgrace from the presidency. JD Vance kinda got both. He got the racist antisemitic president whose own party should have forced him to resign and he got the fascist wannabe.

And whether we got Nixon or Hitler, JD Vance wanted that guy’s endorsement. He got it. The best way to get Trump’s endorsement is to kiss Trump’s ass. Since every GOP candidate was vying for Trump’s endorsement, JD Vance won the ass-kissing contest in addition to the nomination. You’re really good at ass-kissing if you can out ass-kiss the ass kissers.

JD Vance is like a lot of former Never Trumpers who attempt to whitewash their past criticisms of Trump. Marco Rubio insinuated that Donald Trump has a tiny penis. Ted Cruz called Trump a “sniveling coward” for insulting his wife and accusing his father of murder. Lindsey Graham refused to honor the pledge he took in 2016 to honor the eventual GOP nominee. All of them defended Donald Trump during BOTH impeachment trials after spending the entire Trump era attacking people for being Never Trumpers.

I know a conservative cartoonist who was a Never Trumper and posted daily his opposition to Trump’s campaign during the 2016 primaries. He was horrified that someone as vile as Trump could win his party’s nomination and vowed to never support Trump. He wrote in Ted Cruz during the general election, like that was less vile. Shortly after Trump’s regime began, this cartoonist’s posts stopped being critical of Trump and morphed into nice comments here and there until he became a full-blown Trump cultist attacking Never Trumpers. To him, being a Never Trumper was an unforgivable sin. He went back and deleted all of his anti-Trump posts as if they ever happened. Basically, he was erasing his own history which is the same thing JD Vance has done.

JD Vance tweeted a lot of bad things about Donald Trump and used words like “idiot,” “noxious” and “reprehensible” to describe him. Like the cartoonist I know, Vance has since deleted all those bad things about Trump.

So, what did Trump change about his principles for all these former Never Trumpers to become Trump cultists? Trump didn’t change anything. The former Never Trumpers either decided to abandon their principles, or the most likely thing is they realized they never actually had any.

Former Never Trumpers are cowards. They either change because they need something from Trump and his base, or they’re afraid of being on the outs with the cult.

JD Vance is now the Republican nominee for the Ohio senate race and the experts at the Institute for Politics at the University of Virginia has Ohio leaning his way. It’s possible Ohio is about to get a United States Senator who doesn’t have any principles.

If you accept the endorsement of a man you thought might become America’s Hitler, then you do not have any principles.

Disinformation Board


In their criticism of the Department of Homeland Security’s newly-created Disinformation Governance Board, Republicans have one thing right. It’s a stupid name. Maybe the agency thought that “governance” would explain the anti-disinformation part, but they failed to take into account that Republicans don’t do well with the comprehension of things. And it’s not like they want to comprehend anything anyway when they have a new talking point or red meat to throw out to their rabid base.

So, what is this disinformation board stuff? I had the same question when I saw a conservative cartoon on it, and then another and another and another, etc, etc, which meant Fox News must be all over it. If you want to know what Fox News is talking about, just read the conservative political cartoons at GoComics. It’ll save you a lot of time and you’ll get a huge laugh out of it as conservative cartoons are hilarious, though that’s inadvertent.

The Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified in multiple Congressional hearings last week where he mentioned the Disinformation Governance Board. Yeah, it’s a stupid name. Mayorkas said the board was created to combat misinformation from human smugglers and to counter Russian cyber and election misinformation.

Mayorkas said, “We have just established a mis- and disinformation governance board in the Department of Homeland Security to more effectively combat this threat, not only to election security but to our homeland security.”

Why, golly gee willikers, that sounds like a good idea. Who doesn’t want to fight coyotes smuggling humans in from the southern border and Russian attacks on our country? Republicans, that’s who.

Elon Musk said the creation of the board was “messed up.” Elon might as well be a Republican now because as the GOP became more racist, tried to overturn a Democratic election to install an Oompa-Loompa fascist dictator, defended Russia for attacking our nation’s elections, banned abortion by stealing Supreme Court seats, created new laws to stop black people from voting, and is now at war with a cartoon mouse, has found the Democratic Party too extreme.

Republicans also have issues with the board’s executive director, Nina Jankowicz, because she’s praised efforts to combat coronavirus misinformation on social media and expressed skepticism about the relevance of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Republicans are also comparing this to the “Ministry of Truth” in George Orwell’s novel, “1984.”

Senator and white nationalist terrorist power-fister Josh Hawley said, “Rather than police our border, Homeland Security has decided to make policing Americans’ speech its top priority.”

Senator Rob Portman said, “I do not believe that the United States government should turn the tools that we have used to assist our allies counter foreign adversaries onto the American people. Our focus should be on bad actors like Russia and China, not our own citizens.”

But the board isn’t policing speech from citizens of this nation. Its focus is on foreign actors like Russian election meddlers and human smugglers from south of the border. Was the Mayorkas’ microphone not turned on during the hearings? Actually, Republicans didn’t ask a lot of questions about the board during those hearings choosing to instead express anger and gaslight it. And there’s the irony.

The Republicans are lying about a board created to combat lies. Republicans don’t get irony.

And just like the way Republicans were angrier with the FBI for going after suspected Russian spies than they were angry with the actual Russian spies, they’re more upset at a board created to combat lies than they are with the lies. Republicans are more upset with this board than they were with Pizzagate.

Republicans are way off base here and are claiming (another lie) that the board is going to have some sort of authority or ability to shut Americans up. Yeah, I wish. It’s more of that typical Republican doomsday shit where they tell their base, “They’re coming to getcha. Vote Republican.”

Mayorkas has explained, “The board does not have any operational authority or capability,” he said. “What it will do is gather together best practices in addressing the threat of disinformation from foreign state adversaries, from the cartels, and disseminate those best practices to the operators that have been executing in addressing this threat for years.”

Mayorkas said the board was part of an effort whose “goal is to bring the resources of the department together to address this threat,” specifically citing misinformation disseminated to Spanish speakers. 

As I said, Republicans weren’t listening. Jim Jordan asked the director if the board would look into “misinformation” spread by Dr. Anthony Fauci and…wait for it…Hunter Biden’s laptop. Seriously. You can’t talk about shit in Washington without a Republican bringing up Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Jordan is especially opposed to Jankowicz leading the board as she once tweeted that Hunter Biden’s laptop should be viewed as a “Trump campaign product” because of top Trump allies’ role in pushing it. Again, this Republican was missing the irony that during his questioning, he was a Trump ally pushing Hunter Biden’s laptop as a campaign product.

Jankowica tweeted last week, “one of the key reasons the Board was established, is to maintain the [DHS’s] commitment to protecting free speech, privacy, civil rights, & civil liberties.” So, pushing right-wing bullshit is NOT part of the board’s agenda?

Republicans don’t understand free speech. They don’t understand that no one owes them a platform to lie. They don’t understand that organizing a terrorist attack to topple our government isn’t free speech or protected in the Constitution. They don’t comprehend that accusing a political opponent of a crime, like raping children, isn’t freedom of speech and is actually libelous.

Republicans are the party of lies, conspiracy theories, and bullshit. They tell us that Russia didn’t attack our nation to help Donald Trump win an election, except Russia did exactly that. They tell us there are millions of incidents of voter fraud in the 2020 election, which is another lie. They’re changing voting laws based on the election fraud lie. They lie that public schools are teaching Critical Race Theory and are indoctrinating elementary students into becoming gay. It has become impossible for a Republican to talk about any issue without lying. Don’t believe me? Then why don’t you have a nice tall glass of bleach?

Let’s not even look at the lunatics in the party like Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, or Madison Cawthorn. Ignore Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Rand Paul for a minute. Let’s look at the leaders. Mitch McConnell lied about Supreme Court seats as he was stealing them. He’s currently lying about the filibuster because he’s going to destroy that after the GOP takes the Senate in order to ban abortion. Kevin McCarthy lies about telling Trump he’s responsible for the January 6 attack, despite there being tapes of him saying that. And speaking of Trump, he told over 30,000 while he was president (sic).

If there’s a new agency created to go after liars, then why are Republicans so afraid? Oh, yeah. Because they’re liars. Republicans are the enemies of truth.

Goodbye To Women’s Rights


The citizens of this nation are about to lose a constitutional right.

In a leaked initial draft obtained by Politico last night, Justice Samuel Alito wrote, “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled.” This is a preliminary private vote that can change, but won’t. Chief Justice John Roberts, who is comfortable with extreme restrictions on a woman’s right to choose but not with banning it entirely, is voting with the minority to uphold abortion.

For Politico, Josh Gerstein and Alexander Ward write, “The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right.”

Alito writes in the document labeled the “Opinion of the Court,” “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

The people’s elected representatives is kind of the thing, isn’t it?

Mitch McConnell denied President Obama his third Supreme Court nominee a confirmation vote and even refused hearings. In his place, we got Trump’s Neil Gorsuch who is voting to destroy women’s rights to make health decisions regarding their own bodies. McConnell justified this seat steal by claiming there shouldn’t be a confirmation during an election year and the people should get to have a say in the pick…which they already had by electing Obama three years previously and the four years before that.

Then, Justice Anthony Kennedy retired in a deal with Donald Trump that smells fishy to high hell. His replacement was the beer-loving crying Brett Kavanaugh, a man accused of sexual assault. A man who didn’t seem mentally or emotionally up to the task of being a Supreme Court justice. Now he’s assaulting women again. If you’re female and you feel something clenching your uterus, that’s Brett. Would Justice Kennedy have retired if Donald Trump wasn’t president (sic)?

Then, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died less than two months before the 2020 election, and remembering his argument that there shouldn’t be SCOTUS confirmations during an election, Mitch McConnell threw his former position out the window and rushed the confirmation of Trump goon Amy Coney Barrett through before the election. His argument this time was that the Senate was elected by the people, and since Republicans were the majority that this was what the people wanted. The people gave the Democrats the majority two months later. Mitch McConnell doesn’t care if the entire world can see him cheating and for the lying hypocrite he is. He truly doesn’t care as long as he gets what he wants.

Donald Trump didn’t win the popular vote. Hell, George W. Bush didn’t win the popular vote for his first term. The Supreme Court, with justices appointed by his daddy, made George W. Bush president. Despite the Senate being controlled by Republicans during the Trump administration (sic), the majority of this nation’s voters voted for Democratic Senate candidates. Add that to the fact Donald Trump would not be president if NOT for the meddling and interference of Vladimir Putin. This is a fact. So what we have here is a constitutional right being taken away by a court put in place by the white Christian minority voters of this nation. This is not what the people wanted. This is not the direction the people want this nation to go in.

The decision argues that “abortion” is not mentioned in the Constitution. Guess what else isn’t. Birth Control, mixed marriage, and gay marriage. So what right will this ultra-right court full of religious extremists destroy next?

This decision is not final. It’s a draft that’s in the editing stage…or maybe still in the writing stage. Some votes during this stage can change but I don’t see Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Alito, Barrett, or Clarence Thomas changing their vote not to destroy Roe V. Wade. This will probably be final and official in July.

What this means is that about 20 yee-haw states will ban abortion entirely, even in the case of rape, incest, and danger to the life of the woman carrying the fetus. Eleven states have laws that will automatically ban abortion as soon as the decision comes down. More fucknut states will follow suit as fast as they can pass bills and get them on governors’ desks. Don’t be surprised if there are a few special legislative sessions called for the sole purpose of banning abortion. But, this ruling makes abortion a state issue and it will still be legal in states where people don’t drag their knuckles and use eating utensils.

Some of these yee-haw states have made it illegal to leave the state to get an abortion. The Supreme Court has not ruled on one state making something illegal in another state…or have they allowed that? In the past, southern states made it a crime to leave and marry another person in another state. Returning home brought the possibility of jail time. This is what we’re returning to.

As you may recall, Republicans are always arguing about state rights. Yeah, like with everything else they say, that’s bullshit because as soon as the GOP takes back Congress, they’re going to do all they can to ban abortion for the entire nation. They’ll probably kill the filibuster in the Senate to ban abortion.

And what about a state like Virginia which voted heavily for President Biden but then got stupid over racist dog-whistles and elected a Republican who promised he had no interest in enacting Texas-style abortion laws? Expect that to be bullshit too as Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin has a Republican General Assembly, and as we’ve noted, all Republicans are liars. Virginia’s Republicans will ban abortion. And you thought you were just voting against Critical Race Theory being taught to your kids. Here’s the worst part: Critical Race Theory was NEVER being taught to your kids. You fell for that shit and now you’re losing a constitutional right.

What this means is that you need to vote. Vote. Vote. Vote, motherfuckers, vote. I don’t care what state the economy is in or what gaffe President Biden said today or if you’re hearing the word “woke” a lot. Vote Democrat. If you don’t, you’re letting the troglodytes take over this country without even fighting for it.

Welcome to backward America where dogmatic religious zealots create laws dictating how you live your life. We’re going to give the Taliban a run for their money.

Fruity MAGA


CjonesRGB05022022

We can add fruit to black women, stairs, windmills, toilets you have to flush 15 times, cans of soup, non-European immigrants, the female prime minister of Denmark, Greta Thunberg, umbrellas, rain, low-pressure showerheads, weather maps, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, President Joe Biden, firing people in real life and in-person, lightbulbs that make you look orange, and of course, vegetables. This is the list of things Donald Trump is afraid of.

Of course, I left some off the list as it would be impossible to round up the long list of things a coward like Donald Trump is afraid of. It’s at least impossible for me to list when I don’t want to write a long blog today. It’s Sunday afternoon and I have things to do, like eating at some point.

Donald Trump gave a deposition last October in a civil trial brought by five protesters who claim they were assaulted by Trump’s security guards in September 2015 outside Trump Tower in Manhattan. They say Trump’s security team, led by his longtime bodyguard Keith Schiller, ripped away their signs and punched and briefly choked one protester. I’ve walked by Trump Tower several times and have received dirty looks from security. I must just have that certain look of being up to no good.

The plaintiffs’ lawyer asked about a 2016 rally where Trump told the crowd to “knock the crap out of” protesters who might throw tomatoes at him and vowed to pay the legal fees of anyone who did so. Of course, Donald Trump was lying. He doesn’t even pay his own legal fees. Did you know that at this very moment, Rudy Giuliani is sitting with an unpaid bill for his legal services representing Trump’s attempt to steal the election he lost? Poor sad Rudy. It almost kinda sort of makes you feel bad for the guy never.

Trump justified encouraging his racist goon followers to assault fruit throwers by describing how terrified he was of thrown fruit.

Trump said flying fruit is “very dangerous stuff. You can get killed with those things.” He added that his security needs to be “aggressive” in stopping people from throwing “pineapples, bananas, tomatoes, stuff like that.” George W. Bush had shoes thrown at him but Trump’s worried about tomatoes and pineapples. I would very much like to see someone throw a pineapple at Donald Trump.

I attended a Trump rally once and there were food venders for stuff like pizza, ice cream, cookies, hot dogs, burgers, big-ass pretzels, and the usual assorted junk food…but now that I think about it, I can’t recall there being any vendors selling rotten tomatoes. There also weren’t any banana vendors. Nobody was selling pineapples or watermelons. Come to think of it, the place was half full when Trump started to speak despite there being an extremely long line of MAGAts outside waiting to get in. Perhaps the security patdowns were being extra cautious to make sure no smuggled kumquats made it into the venue. Do you know what would happen if you’re struck in the skull by a kumquat thrown at full velocity? It can be very distracting.

Let’s be real here. Fruit is rarely dangerous. About the only way police would ever feel threatened by a person armed with a banana is if it was being wielded by a nonwhite person and the cops mistook it for an assault rifle. Maybe Trump once choked on a grape as he looks like the kind of guy who doesn’t like chewing his food. There is a reason it takes him 15 times to flush a toilet other than destroying documents that are criminal evidence.

Donald Trump should not be afraid of fruit and vegetables. Next time he’s filling up at McDonald’s, he should ask about their fruit cups. Do they still sell those? I know, they probably just sell salads for show at McDonald’s so they can say they don’t just sell stuff that’ll give you diabetes, clogged arteries, and heart attacks. But they can dust off the fruit flies and sell one to Trump. And then someone can explain to him what it is. But tell him slowly so you don’t startle him.

The real irony of Trump being afraid of fruit is that he looks like a pumpkin. I know, we can debate this all day. The people who say he looks like a peach or a mango have very valid arguments.

Trust Fund Fairies


The last time student loan forgiveness was in the news, a very conservative friend of mine posted her opposition to it on Facebook. Several of her like-minded friends jumped in and they all had one collective reason for opposing the government wiping out student debt and providing free college: They had to pay for college so future generations should have to pay as well.

If this is your only reason to oppose free college, then you suck. What happened to working hard so our kids can have an easier life? This attitude that other people should suffer because you suffered is cruel and is another example of why Republican candidates appeal to assholes. It’s because Republicans are assholes.

Surprise! The send-them-back party and gang who loves to separate families and throw the babies into cages are opposed to free college. So, what’s wrong with free college? We already provide free education K-12. Why can’t we add four more? Or at the very least, this nation should provide free two-year community college. Conservatives argue that free college is too expensive and we don’t have the money for it. But we do have the money for it.

Free college would probably cost us around $55 billion a year. Ouch, right? But we spend over $700 billion on defense. If we pulled the funds for free college from defense alone that’d only leave defense with $645 billion. How many billions have we spent on tanks that are just sitting in storage?

At least 55 of our nation’s largest corporations didn’t pay taxes in 2020. The statutory federal tax rate for corporate profits is 21 percent, but these companies didn’t pay that, which would have added up to over $8.5 billion. If you add that up with the $3.5 billion in rebates, it comes to $12 billion. That could have gone toward free college, which is something corporate America would have recruited from.

Remember the Wall Street bailout of 2008? We initially set out to give banks over $700 billion, but it eventually came down to $426 billion. Sure, we got that money back, and with a profit of around $17 billion. This was an investment. $55 billion a year to provide free college so we can keep up with the rest of first-world nations would also be an investment.

We spend about $20 billion a year subsidizing the oil industry which does not give us a price break at the pump during a world crisis like we’re experiencing now. Chevron alone has quadrupled its profits and last Friday posted its highest quarterly profit in 10 years.

Donald Trump’s company made over $1.6 billion during the four years he was president (sic). Part of that was the $2.5 million the United States government paid to his golf resorts. If you’re one of those praising him for donating his $400,000 yearly salary back to the government while he raked in over $2.5 million from taxpayers, and additional millions from violating the emoluments clause, shut up and sit down.

We can afford free college. We can debate forgiving all the debt that’s out there, but that’s something we can wipe out too while we restructure the system. Even if we don’t wipe out loans, we should provide free four-year college. There can still be private universities if you’re too snooty for public schools, but the options should be out there. We can keep a loan system in place for those who choose to continue pursuing their education after four years.

Just like we were with health care (and still are), we’re behind the rest of the civilized world with free college. $55 billion a year is too much to spend on free college? We currently spend over $80 billion annually on prisons.

Personally, I think college is a better investment than stuff like prisons, oil companies, and Trumps.
