Truth Social

Hating On The FBI


Elected officials from city councils to the presidency are supposed to represent their entire constituencies, whether they voted for them or not. A president should be president even to those who hate him. Donald Trump has only represented one constituency, angry racist white people. He doesn’t give a rat’s ass about anyone else, and quite frankly, he doesn’t really care all that much about the angry racist white people either. He’s just using them. Trump really only cares about Trump. But, he will send those angry racist white people out to hurt you. And the proof he doesn’t care about them either is that he puts them in harm’s way too. Ask Ashli Babbitt. Oh, wait. You can’t because she’s dead.

Maybe you can ask Ricky Shiffer. Oh, wait. He’s dead too.

Ashli Babbit was killed by a Capitol Police officer while she was engaging in a terrorist attack instigated by Donald Trump over a lie. It was the Big Lie.

Ricky Shiffer was killed by police after trying to attack the FBI office in Cincinnati with an AR-15-style assault rifle and a nail gun. Why? Because he was upset the government took stuff away from Donald Trump that he didn’t own. Donald Trump got Ashli and Ricky both killed. Donald Trump has gotten a lot of people killed.

Since the FBI executed a search warrant on Donald Trump’s gaudy home in a ridiculous Florida golf resort (come for the buffet, stay for the treason), he’s tweeted, er…”truthed” or “re-truthed” over 40 attacks against the FBI and Department of Justice. And the Republican Party has been doing the same.

Trump has accused the FBI and DOJ of being corrupt, of being communist, of being directed by President Biden, and has made claims of them attempting to turn off security footage at Mar-a-Lago and of rummaging through Melania’s closet which is in a totally separate bedroom than where Trump sleeps because she doesn’t sleep with Trump, and nobody blames her for that, but yeah…her clothes were like taken off hangers and left on the floor and that might be the greatest injustice here. Do you know how tedious it is to put all your clothes back on hangers? Ugh. I think I got off topic a bit there. But thankfully for Melania, Trump has hired undocumented migrants to do her laundry. Hope they’re not the rapists and killers Mexico sent.

Trump has “re-truthed” goons like Jon Voight, Mike Pompeo, Marjorie Taylor Greene who’s calling to “defund the FBI,” and has even re-truthed someone using the racist frog avatar (Pepe) and a “truth” of a cartoon by the racist Branco who stole my sippy cup because he can’t come up with his own shit or even possess the intelligence to understand why the sippy cup works with Trump but doesn’t with President Biden and yeah…I’m getting off track again.

In case you haven’t noticed, Trump has yet to…”truth”… any condemnation against the attacker in Cincinnati and has yet to release a statement telling his goons to be peaceful. In fact, he’s doing everything he can without explicitly calling for violence to make sure there is violence.

Before the court unsealed the warrant, Trump apparently leaked it to some conservative outlets. I mean, who else could have leaked it? Not the FBI or DOJ because they were having it unsealed by the court. But, Trump didn’t have to leak it. He could have just “truthed” it on his shitty hater platform and had shown the world all the details except maybe redact the names of the FBI agents. Guess what Trump did not do.

Donald Trump, who once called for the death penalty for leakers, leaked the warrant to the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and Steve Bannon’s Breitbart. Donald Trump did NOT redact the names of the FBI agents. Breitbart published the names. Now, the names of those agents are all over Hater platforms. They’re on Truth Social, Telegram, Gab, 4chan, and all the ones we don’t even know about.

I was going to post a link to Breitbart so you can see it for yourself, but I’m not in the mood to surf Breitbart today. Go look it up for yourself if you must see it.

News anchor Ed Greenberger tweeted. “So… when Trump leaked the warrant docs to WSJ, FOX & Breitbart this afternoon, the names of the FBI agents in moved were not redacted. Anyone who thinks Trump cares about America, or Americans, is a damn fool.”

Donald Trump has a history of endorsing and calling for violence. He’s encouraged his supporters at his rallies to attack protesters and promised to pay for their legal fees. During Black Lives Matter protests, he tweeted, “When the looting starts, that’s when the shooting starts,” which probably inspired Kyle Rittenhouse to drive 90 miles to defend himself with an assault rifle. Hate crimes increased during Trump’s rise to power and he often praised the attackers as people who love their country and are passionate. Racist Mass shooters wrote manifestos praising Trump. He told the hate group Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” during his debate with President Biden. He told his white nationalist terrorists to come to Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021, and promised it was going to be “wild.” He gave them a pep rally before their attack and then sat in the executive dining room in the White House for hours watching the attack unfold. Instead of calling off the attack, he tweeted an attack on Mike Pence. When he finally did tell them to go home, kinda sorta, he told them he “loved them” and that they were “very special.”

This is the same motherfucker who said good people marched with Nazis in Charlottesville.

I don’t have the time or motivation to chronicle all the times Trump endorsed violence, But Vox has a very good timeline you can check out, and you won’t get the feeling of ickiness crawling all over you like when you click a link to Breitbart.

If you think Donald Trump cares about anyone who’s not Donald Trump, you’re a damn fool.

Social Putin

I’m trying to sign up on Truth Social to see if I can get banned on my very first day. I want to post this cartoon. The problem is, I’m having trouble having a very first day. You know how you get a confirmation email when you sign up for something new, right? Yeah, I’m still waiting on that email.

After taking a tiny break to eat a chicken biscuit with mustard, it arrived. And only after two re-sent attempts.

I’m in business now. I verified my email, created a password and a username (ClayJones), and now…I wait. I’m not in business. My waitlist number is #569,880. But, I don’t have to worry. Despite that number, Truth Social says I’m “not just another number.” They also say, “We love you.” What the fuck? Do they think I’m a non-housebroken white nationalist terrorist trying to overturn the election for Donald Trump? Ew.

Trump’s new social media platform has been a bungled mess so far. For a social media platform to succeed, it needs people. Yet, this platform can’t get people on its platform. Bill Fitzgerald, a privacy researcher, said, “The basic thing they needed to actually get right, to get someone in the door, they couldn’t get right.” Remember when Donald Trump criticized the rollout of Healthcare.gov? Yeah, good times.

Fitzgerald also said, “There is no better sign of a rushed implementation than the fact that you can’t onboard anybody. So I’m hard-pressed to understand why anyone would trust that these people would keep their information safe.” It’s Trump and his goons, so no. Nobody should trust him. My email has probably already been sold to a Nigerian prince in Belarus.

Someone in Belarus stole one of my cartoons and blogs for their shitty website, and rewrote parts of the blog.

Truth Social is Donald Trump’s Twitter. He created his own platform because he can’t play on Twitter anymore, to which he was addicted. On Trump’s platform, tweets are called “truths,” and retweets “retruths.” Did you just groan a little bit? I’m sure Trump won’t ban himself for strategizing white nationalist terrorist attacks and retweeting Nazis on Truth Social.

The logo to Truth Social is a broken “T,” which the company seems to have stolen from Trailar, a British company that sells solar panels for trucks. That’s a thing? Cool!

Here’s the fun stuff: Trump and MAGAt nation spend their quiet hours screaming about censorship. If their lies are removed from social media, they claim it’s censorship and cancel culture. Then they roll around on the floor kicking and screaming while wetting themselves. But Truth Social also has restrictions on “acceptable speech.” After they let me in, if they ever do, I’m going to test this vigorously.

People are banned from trying to “trick” or “mislead” other users, violating anyone’s “privacy or publicity rights,” or posting messages that “depict violence” or include messages related to “sexual fetishes,” “sugar babies” or “sexually suggestive” phrases. People are also forbidden from posting anything “false,” “indecent,” “misleading,” “profane,” “obscene,” “filthy” or “otherwise objectionable.” The guy who told over 25,000 lies as president (sic) is going to decide what the truth is for other users…also, “sugar babies?” Does this mean Melania can’t join Truth Social? Would that comment get me banned on Truth Social? We’ll find out.

Now, for an example of censorship: Trump’s company, the Trump Media & Technology Group, prohibits criticism of Trump’s company. The terms of service prohibit anyone from attempting to “disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us and/or the Site.” The site has already banned Devin Nunes’ Cow. How’d that cow moove (see what I did there?) so quickly through the waiting list? Will posting that Devin Nune’s is a cow’s sugar baby get me banned on Truth Social? We’ll find out.

Say what you will about Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok, but they do allow people to criticize their platforms on their platforms. You know this is true because you have done it. I know I have. Half of Facebook’s users are people who hate Facebook and they let you know how much they hate Facebook with their anti_Facebook posts on Facebook.

Also, do you remember how Trump said the laws that protect social media companies from being sued for what their users post should be “completely terminated?” The site’s terms of service show that it’s also protected from those same laws.

The disaster of the site’s rollout is mostly on Trump’s team, directed by the Cow’s sugar baby, Devin Nunes, who runs the company. They were not ready for this and like with most things, they’re incompetent. But another reason for the issues is that so many are trying to sign up at once for a platform that’s not ready for it. Is the site that popular with people who love Trump or is it more popular with stinkers like me and the cow who want to make fun of it?

Do MAGAts actually need Truth Social? They already have Gab, 4Chan, Telegram, and Parler. But I guess this one is supposed to be the final solution to Twitter, so all the users from the other hate sites can all congregate together on Trump’s platform…which will probably be required for cult membership. If Truth Social works, it will make Trump richer. This guy’s been sponging off his supporters for years anyway.

The majority of Truth Social users will be Trump lovers, so I guess Vladimir Putin may have an account soon. And what better way for him to keep us up to date on his invasion of Ukraine by using Trump Social to tell us it’s not an invasion, but “peacekeeping.” And you know there’s no better way to own the libs than to join Truth Social and support an authoritarian madman’s invasion of a democratic nation that’s an American ally.

Don’t look for Truth on Truth Social…but you will get to social with Nazis. Truth.

Also, will Truth Social make an exception for Donald Trump to join since he’s Putin’s Sugar Baby? Can I post on Truth Social that Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s sugar baby?

We’ll find out.

Fetch, Devin, Fetch


CjonesRGB12112021

After being Donald Trump’s ball boy over the past five years, Devin Nunes has resigned from Congress and is mooving to become Trump’s ball boy in the private sector (see what I did there with the “moo?”). He probably figures he can do a better job of lying for Donald Trump from his future social media platform than from a seat in Congress. Devin is going to work for Donald Trump. Of course, he’s always worked for Trump but now it’s official.

Devin is taking a serious gamble here. The first gamble is: The Republican Party can win back the House in 2022 which would make Devin Nunes the chairman of the most powerful committee in Congress, the Ways and Means Committee. But that’s probably boring compared to barking out bullshit and waging legal fights with fictional cows.

But then again, Devin may not be re-elected in 2022 as his district’s map is changing.

The other gamble for Devin Nunes is he’s leaving Congress to become CEO of Trump’s upcoming social media platform, Truth Social. Yeah, I know. “Truth”? They should call it “Bullshit Social.” But, this platform may not ever come to exist.

Truth Social was supposed to debut last November, but where is it? The domains created for it were attacked by hackers on their first day of existence. The company has already violated its software agreement (shocking). The stock options for the company are like a shell game and are already under investigation by the SEC. A lot of people bought stocks not realizing they were buying into a Trump venture. That’s like buying a house before realizing it’s haunted by Jerry Lewis. “Hey, Laaaaaaaaaaaaaady!”

This is Trump’s second venture into social media. Do you remember his first one after leaving office? Exactly!

Trump started this weird thing where he’d create posts from “The Desk of Donald J. Trump,” which was on the site from his super PAC. The idea was for it to be exactly like Twitter…if Twitter mugged you each time you went on the platform. Each post was supposed to be under 280 characters so his cult could share them on other platforms, mostly Twitter and Facebook. It was supposed to be a “communications” platform but there was no way anyone could post a reply under Trump’s post or do any actual communicating. This was designed so nobody could hurt Trump’s feelings or point out he had just self-owned himself like he did last week with an “official” statement that said, “Anybody that doesn’t think there wasn’t massive Election Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election is either very stupid, or very corrupt!” Yup, he called himself very stupid and very corrupt. We already knew that. It’s nice when Trump does it for us so we don’t have to.

I digress. This “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” shit didn’t last and hits to the site started decreasing after the very first day it launched. Within two weeks, it had less than 10 percent of the interaction it had on its first day. Michael Flynn’s tenure in the White House lasted longer than “From the Desk of Donald Trump.”

Devin better hope this new venture doesn’t go the way of From the Desk of Donald Trump, or Trump Steaks, Trump Wine, Trump Airlines, etc, etc.

The third gamble here is: Trump stiffs people. I’m not talking about the kind of stiffing where he has to get a cheap lawyer like Michael Cohen to draft non-disclosure agreements for. I’m talking about the way he stiffs contractors. Trump, who cares so much about working stiffs, has a long history of stiffing working stiffs. Trump has probably stiffed more blue-collar workers than he’s draw-dogged porn stars while being married to Melania.

You may think Devin has been working for Trump for free all these years anyway, so so what. But, that’s not true. We’ve been paying Devin Nunes to wash Trump’s balls over the past five years.

When Nunes was chair of the House Intelligence Committee, he constantly worked to protect Trump. He didn’t want to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election. He didn’t want to investigate Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia. He didn’t want to investigate the Trump Campaign’s collusion with Russia. When Nunes learned more about Russian ties to the Trump campaign, before he shared it with the rest of the Intelligence Committee, he ran to the White House to tell Donald Trump. He blamed investigators for investigating. He issued a four-page memo claiming the FBI had an anti-Trump bias for investigating Trump goon Carter Page instead of having an anti-Russian spy bias. Nunes was investigated by the House Ethics Committee for disclosing classified information, but the GOP-led committee dropped the investigation since Nunes wouldn’t give them all the documents they wanted. Seriously.

Devin Nunes even went to London in an attempt to meet with the heads of MI5, MI6, and the General Communications Headquarters to get dirt on Christopher Steele, the author of the Steele Dossier, alleging Trump paid Moscow hookers to pee on him. Ironically, each agency told Nunes to piss off. Maybe he just wanted to know the going rate for having Trump pee on him.

During the first Trump impeachment, Nunes went to Europe to meet with Ukrainians to try to get dirt on Joe Biden. He also claimed Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election. His trip was supposed to be a secret but it was exposed by CNN and The Daily Beast. Nunes claimed they broke the law by reporting his secret trip. He later attempted to sue CNN and fellow Congressman, Ted Lieu, for reporting and talking about his relationship with Trump goon, Lev Parnas. Lieu was excited about the lawsuit as it would force Nunes to disclose his contacts and other interesting information in depositions. All these lawsuits were thrown out.

Nunes loves frivolous lawsuits which bring us to the cow.

Devin Nunes sued two Twitter parody accounts, one titled “Devin Nunes’ Mom” and the other “Devin Nunes’ Cow.” The cow won.

Now, Devin’s going to work for a social media website that, pay attention, has its users agree the Trump platform is not responsible for shit they post. This is something Devin and Donald Trump both opposed while in office. Donald Trump always wanted to blame the platforms any time someone would write something like, oh, I don’t know…maybe something like, “Donald Trump is the demon spawn of an orange Nazi shitgibbon.” Devin never liked being asked on Twitter, “Hey, Devin…did you notice what Trump had for lunch today while your head was up his ass?” Of course, that question was rhetorical and was asked just to annoy Devin. We all know the answer is Big Macs.

Devin is giving up the potential to wield huge power in Washington for what he believes will be huge power in social media. But how much power will he really have after going to work for Fox News in six months because Truth Social could never compete against 4-chan or Telegram?

Fox News does pay but he’ll still have to have his head up Trump’s ass. That won’t be a problem because apparently, he likes it there.

Moo.
