"Wheel of Fake News"

The failing mainstream media continue to spin absurd lies in their non-stop effort defame President Trump. I remember watching CNN during last year’s election campaign. Over and over again they referred to Hillary as “historic.” They called Trump “divisive” at every opportunity. I suppose they thought that would be enough to sway their brainwashed viewers. Except many of those viewers grew wise to the propaganda. Many more stopped watching TV news altogether and began finding the truth on the Internet.

In addition to the ‘divisive’ smear, the leftist corporate media said Trump was part of the KKK, a tax cheat, and, of course, a ‘racist.’ None of it stuck and Trump was elected president.

Once their historic candidate lost, the media ran with Hillary’s new directive: Claim Trump was in league with the Russians, who ‘hacked’ her election. Smear him as a traitor. Shills such as Bill Maher ran with this lie weekly on his HBO comedy show. They doubled down and then tripled down on the 'Russia' narrative even though they lacked facts to support it. Real facts pointed to leakers such as Seth Rich. The DNC rigged their own primaries and it backfired. Now their ‘Russia' narrative has also backfired.

Most recently the media ludicrously blamed President Trump for the violence in Charlottesville because they claimed he didn’t adequately condemn the white supremacists and Nazis. Anyone who is a patriot who wants to protect our constitutional republic is now considered a ‘Nazi.’ Many on the left are even applauding the destruction of our historical statues and monuments. They want to destroy Trump and the country while they’re at it.

Give the mainstream media an inch and they'll make a crude mile of nonsense out of it. The legacy media’s repeated failure is dangerous, however. If the Deep State’s megaphone isn’t working, they shadow government may resort to more drastic measures in order to remove our president--including war, false flags, a stock market crash, and perhaps even a civil war. The rats want to sink the president’s ship, even if they go down with it.

"Far Left Loonies"

The divide between the left and right is widening in America. Instead of rational debate, we’re seeing more vitriol and trench digging. The mainstream media and the left want President Trump impeached. Their bogus ‘Russia’ narrative has unravelled, so now they’re calling Trump’s supporters ‘Nazis’ or 'white supremacists.' This is nothing but hysteria and completely ludicrous, but I’ve experienced similar attacks for years. I’m a libertarian cartoonist, but many on the left seem to think that makes me a ‘Nazi.' No—we libertarians despise socialism in any form! 

In order to bring down our president, the left seems willing to bring down the entire country including erasing our history. Statues of confederate heroes are being pulled down with increasing alacrity. Why? Because someone’s feelings may be hurt! Bill Maher said on a recent show that ‘feelings’ are reason enough to remove statues that have stood for well over 100 years. This kind of destruction to our heritage won’t end with the Confederate legacy being removed. Statues of our founding fathers as well as explorers will be next. Maybe even Rodin’s “Thinker” will be toppled. After all, he represents European logic and reason. They’ll want to tear up the Constitution eventually and replace it with “Das Kapital” or something. There has even been serious lefty talk about blowing up Mount Rushmore. America’s very history is being insulted. This makes it easier for the left to install socialism.

Old movies will no longer be available. They aren’t politically correct and they don’t want young Americans to see what our country used to be like. You know, with men and women who weren’t confused about their gender. 

Conservatives will no longer have a voice on the Internet. This is already happening. We must fight this, but I’m not sure how. My site and blog could disappear tomorrow and I’d have no recourse. Obama was determined to give the Internet over the UN. That way a ‘global’ authority could stop free speech like they have in Germany. That will happen here if the lefties get their way.

The NFL is starting a new season soon and protestors are upset that Colin Kaepernick has not been signed! They claim the NFL is racist even though 75 percent of the players are black. They want Colin in there so he can do more protesting. The over-paid QB’s ability declined after failing to win a Super Bowl. He became a mediocre player and was benched. What did he do? He decided to sit during our National Anthem. This trend has caught on and the pink-ribbon festooned NFL apparently endorses such behavior. Something wrong with society? Take it out on the symbol that unifies and represents ALL Americans. Sure, they have freedom of speech and expression, but what would happen to the average worker if he or she did something that distracting and insulting on company time? Nowadays, anyone expressing anything slightly politically incorrect in the workplace can get canned. Diversity and “inclusion” are now sacred words at HR departments everywhere. Anyone violating a long list of ‘no-can-say’ things could lose their job. Not so in the NFL. The league and the players enjoy raking in millions of dollars for playing a game while the NFL let’s them disrespect our flag. The league itself pays no federal taxes, but their hard working fans would be harassed by the IRS in short order if they didn’t pay theirs. The NFL can officially be considered in the lefty PC camp. The game will continue to be tamed to the point where the refs may toss flags for overt displays of toughness or masculinity. The only way for the fans to protest is to stop paying for and watching the games.

"Release the Bannon"

I was very disappointed to see Steve Bannon leave the White House. Trump needs someone at his side to remind him about the policies that got him elected. Bannon proclaimed, “The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over.”

So soon? What happened? We know what the situation is now. President Trump is surrounded by deep swamp snakes including Soros and Goldman Sachs men. Heck, Bannon himself was a former Goldman Sachs man. What have we become? The Goldman Sachs States of America? Why has Trump surrounded himself with globalists? He said he supports the country first and proved it by kicking the globalists in their collectivist shins when he shunned the Paris Accords. He wants to limit immigration and build the wall to help protect our country. Does he still have the will or means to follow through on his promises? When will Hillary be locked up?

Ivanka is a New York liberal and friends with Chelsea Clinton. Trump loves his family and so he installed his smart and beautiful daughter in a powerful position, but how much sway does she really have with him? We know she probably influenced him to bomb Syria and that’s not good. Her husband, Jared Kushner, has ties to Soros and, in fact, has a line of credit with the globalist meddler. This is not at all a good sign.

McMaster is yelling for more war in Afghanistan and Cohn and the rest are pushing Trump to go along with the globalists to get along. It’s sad. All I can do is hope President Trump can somehow work to deliver on his promises that got him elected.

Bannon said he would attack the liberals and globalists that have taken over the White House and that’s good to hear. So I say, release the kraken that is Bannon!

"War Go-'Round"

President Trump will soon announce his plans in Afghanistan. The United States has waged war there for over 15 years now, with no end in sight.

The U.S. cannot leave, because our Afghan allies aren't strong enough to stand on their own. We must support them as well as train their troops to better stand up agains the Taliban. Instead, 2,000 of these trained troops defect to the Taliban every month. Essentially we are training the enemy. So why are we there? To protect the poppy fields so the CIA make money for themselves by means of the drug trade? It's not surprising to read that record amount of Americans are addicted. Death due to overdose has also skyrocketed.

The military industrial complex and Deep State want war. It's very profitable for them. They rake in the dough while the soldiers pay the price.

It's time to stop the War Go 'Round. Please, Mr. the right thing. Bring our troops home and put them to work building the wall and improving our infrastructure at home.

This cartoon is an earlier version that features Kim Jong Un. The final version concentrated on Afghanistan and featured a few key statistics on the carousel.

"Kim Jong Un"

Here's a repeat of my Kim Jong Un cartoon. The North Korean 'Dear Leader' remains on the warpath. He hurls vile threats not only to scare the world, but also impress his own failed nation. He wants to distract his people with patriotic hate. People perpetually preparing for war will think less about their own misery at the hands of a ruthless, evil elite led by a spoiled brat. I think it's best to let the little freak rattle his nuclear saber all he wants and do nothing. However, if he ever has the foolish temerity to actually launch a nuclear attack against America, he must be mercilessly wiped out.

It's too bad China doesn't do something to stop their truculent ally on the Korean peninsula, but I have a feeling they enjoy having someone else poke away at the US hornets nest while they sit back and see how much poking we'll take.

China is not the only entity to blame. We can blame Jimmy Carter for negotiating a settlement with the NK nut jobs. Carter made sure the tyrants received $5 billion and two nuclear reactors in exchange for their promise not to pursue nuclear weapons. It was a hollow promise. What Clinton and Carter did was succeed in giving them nuclear technology.

Carter received the Nobel Peace Prize for his effort, just as Obama received one for...well, for no good reason at all. Obama is also to blame for shuffling away the North Korean nuke problem for another president to solve. Remember, Obama gave away millions of dollars to Iran to appease them. Iran and North Korea are allies who have grown accustomed to getting bribed and placated by fools.

"The Trouble With Trannies"

“The Trouble With Trannies”

I’m a big fan of the original ‘Star Trek’ series. I watched them as they were originally broadcast when I was a kid. There’s an episode that involves the mass propagation of a creature known as a ‘tribble.’ The furry things were gender fluid and could breed at will, and they had a lot of will. Nowadays we see a lot of people who almost consider it an offense to be ‘normal.’ They are now slurred as being ‘normies.'

The Enterprise went where no man, er person, has gone before. Now people don’t have to go to an alien planet to see weird things. We can find plenty of oddities right here on Earth. ‘Trannies’ seem to be booming. At least, we hear about them daily on the mainstream media who favor them. Barack Obama loved them. He may have even married one.

Since trans-whatevers are considered heroes, they continue to push the envelope. We are told we are haters if we don’t guess the correct pronoun for someone who claims they are able to change their genetic structure by sheer force of will. They don’t need God to assign them their sex. They tell God how it’s going to be. Now they are saying children should choose what sex they’d like to be. Call me old fashioned, but all of this strikes me as a form of insanity. To be sure, I don’t care what people want to be or pretend to be. But to brainwash kids into thinking they’re neither male nor female and they can choose on their own? That’s criminal abuse. Time to push back.

Recently William Shatner has been under attack by SJWs, feminists who hate men and what he calls “snowflakes.” The latter are young people who are also known as, ‘crybullies.’ They invent or imagine micro-aggressions and slights and exaggerate them into major offenses. President Trump faces such outrage from the feminists, SJWS and snowflakes on a daily basis. They flew into a flurry when he decreed that transexuals don’t belong in the military. Do we really need such distractions inflicted upon people who are fighting for our country? It’s bad enough they aren’t installing urinals for sailors on new aircraft carriers. They don’t want to offend female sailors or something. What’s next—flying the rainbow flags on ships? 

If a person insisted he was Napoleon, he was once sent to an insane asylum. Now he roams free. That’s fine by me, but when politicians drum up hate speech laws and insist I call him Napoleon or be considered a ‘hater,’ that’s where I draw the line. I will not praise these mentally ill people. Neither would Captain Kirk.
