Luck of the I Wish

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, st patrick's day, busty ross, green

Okay, we may be a day late to the party but we couldn't ignore St. Paddy's Day entirely. After all, our paternal grandfather was 100% Irish, straight from County Cork. So our heart beats a little faster on March 17th, which we choose to think of as proud traditionalism rather than troubling and potentially deadly arrhythmia.

But turning serious for a moment, our heart genuinely does ache over the senseless and appalling massacre which took place in New Zealand, and was executed by a madman who played the whole thing as a social media event, including live-streaming murders and writing a lengthy, baffling, and self-contradicting manifesto designed to stoke argument, anger, and division. Let us be very, very clear about something: this piece of human garbage killed innocent people specifically to get his sick views noticed and talked about. Which is why we're not doing it and never will.  Screw this lunatic, and anyone who would use his acts for political leverage. Our hearts are with the people of Christchurch, New Zealand. All the people.

But to lighten today's post a bit, let's take a look at what happened when Chelsea Clinton tangled with protesters at an NYU vigil for the New Zealand victims...

You don't need a Hubbell telescope to notice she's growing into her real father's bottom lip...
In essence, an anti-Israeli protester accused Chelsea's tweet (in which she suggested that a Congresswoman's blatant anti-semitism wasn't a good thing) of triggering the Islamaphobic massacre in New Zealand. This immediately opens several important questions:

• Are tweets really that frigging important? To anyone?
• Does the radical left really think that anti-semitism is a winning play going into 2020 elections?
• Why the hell is a 39 year old woman hanging around vigils on a college campus instead of staying home caring for her kids, her private servers, and her secret bank accounts?

Frankly, we enjoy watching the Left devour its own, so really have no problem with this stupid story. Or, for that matter, this stupid story...

School of Fort Knox

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, college admissions, lori loughlin, obama, trump, barry soetoro, occidental, warren

We're enjoying watching the big college admissions scandal story unfold, as it's got a little something for everybody. Hate rich people? Hate people who game the system? Hate people who live in a privileged bubble that you'll never enjoy? Hate Hollywood celebrities? This fraud's for you!

And while we chuckled over the hypocrisy of Senator Elizabeth "Princess Cheekbones" Warren saying that she has zero sympathy for people who fudge collegiate documents to get ahead (ironically while she was giving a clandestine "White Power" gang sign)...


...we couldn't help but be reminded of the long-running and highly plausible rumor that Barack Obama (or Barry Soetoro as he called himself at the time) got major funding help from Occidental College by claiming to be a foreign student. Of course, we can't confirm this blatant fraud - nor can Lefties disprove it - because Obama had the documentation sealed from public view...much like every other piece of information about his past. Because "transparency" apparently works best when armed guards protect your secrets.

But the college admission scandal isn't really about politics - it's about privilege, and those who abuse it. Actress Lori Loughlin apparently paid $500,000 to get her daughters into a good school, an amount for which you could probably buy entrance for a dead hamster or a small bowl of succotash. One daughter was already earning $300,000 a year on Youtube and questioned why she even needed college (not a bad point), though allowed that she'd grudgingly attend to enjoy "game day and partying."

We frankly doubt that this distracting, shiny object of a scandal (seen any major stories about FBI mattress Lisa Page testifying that Obama's DOJ ordered the FBI not to pursue charges against Hillary?) will make any real impact on fixing America's badly broken college system. But we do hope to see the guilty appropriately shamed and punished, if only to enjoy a brief moment of nostalgia for the way justice is supposed to work.

And who knows, maybe in this case it will...

Speaking of fake documents, we admit we made this one up.

BONUS: KILLER IDEA?


Hey, this might seem like a screwy idea, but it's not as screwy as what California's Governor Gavin Newsom just signed into law. When convicted killers have more protections than kids, the world is badly out of whack.

Impeach Impaired

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, mueller, report, trump, impeachment, pelosi, schiff, omar, anti-semitism

Something very interesting has happened in the last couple of days. With hints that the long-awaited Mueller Report might finally be issued at any moment, the anti-Trump impeachment rhetoric of rabid Democrat dogs Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff has changed remarkably.

Perhaps after getting insider information that the Mueller Report will be less a hurricane than a butterfly fart, the two (and other democrats) are suddenly striking a much more subdued tone "for the good of the country." Right. As if either has ever showed interest in what was good for our country.

"Unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path," said the ever-bipartisan House Speaker through tight-pressed, botoxed lips, "because it divides the country." And if there's one thing the Democrats clearly don't want, it's to divide the country...except by race, gender, religion, class, sexual orientation, culture, fiscal worth, or citizenship status.

In similarly measured tones (perhaps after quaffing a similarly measured amount of taxpayer-funded booze from Nancy's drink cart), Adam "When I Hit The Fan" Schiff reluctantly mumbled "A bipartisan process would have to be extra clear and compelling." As opposed to, presumably, made up out of whole cloth by a cabal of liars looking to overturn our last Presidential election.

Of course, the loud "beep-beep-beep" of high-ranking Democrats trying to back up may be due to more than just leaked information that the Mueller Report is going to be absolutely inconsequential. Because in a recent interview, Trump said that if the Democrats "want to play tough," then he will declassify documents which will be "devastating" to them.

This may be total BS on Trump's part (he is, after all, a more efficient manure spreader than you'll find on even the largest factory farm), or it might be actual truth. But if it is, we don't think Trump should be using it as a bargaining chip.

Rather, he should go ahead and drop the mother of all Truth Bombs on the Democrats (and deserving Republicans, for that matter) then start rebuilding our government in the smoldering, slightly radioactive crater that used to be the Washington swamp.

Sproing Forward, Fall Back

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, dst, daylight saving time, sleepy, democrats, conspiracy, johnny optimism

Oh sure, there's plenty of interesting and meaningful news worth talking about today, but we can't really do it. And why? It's because we're bleary-eyed, disoriented, and sick to our stomach, owing to the governmental curse called Daylight Saving Time.

And while we're not normally conspiratorially minded, we can't help but connect a few dots. Today, we could be writing about AOC accusing the United States of being "garbage" in statements made at the South By Southwest gathering in Austin, TX, or writing about the Democrats killing a bill to limit voting to actual citizens. We could be writing about House Democrats' tacit endorsement of anti-semitism, or the increasing panic among the Left-leaning that the Mueller report - if the damn thing ever comes out - will have absolutely nothing of substance about Trump's alleged Russian collusion.

But nooOOooo. Because the government is spreading sleeping sickness far more efficiently than any tsetse fly could ever dream of (see what we did there?), we're limited to tapping randomly on our keyboard while blinking with heavy-lidded eyes and thinking wistfully of death by ritual Seppuku just to end our zombie-like torpor.

And sure, people say that the nightmare of DST works itself out over the course of a year, but at our age we don't really consider that a guarantee. Instead, we look at the situation more like our friend Johnny Optimism does...


We'd say more, but at the time of this writing on Sunday night, the clock says it's 7 o'clock, yesterday at this time it was 6 o'clock, and our body - deprived of an hour of sleep this morning - says that it's 10 o'clock. Yeah, the math doesn't add up, but that's our whole freaking point.

Hopefully, but not likely, most of our malaise will have passed by Wednesday. If you need us in the interim, we'll be in bed wearing a tear-stained sleep mask.

BONUS: MORE OF THE SAME!

It Burns, Burns, Burns

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, ash wednesday, AOC, pelosi, Omar, muslim, anti-semitism, northam, blackface
Or maybe she was just splashed with Holy Water.
Just to be clear, we're not mocking anything about Ash Wednesday or the Catholic faith. If Nancy Pelosi wants to get ash-faced, it's certainly her privilege...and her sacred promise to give up something she loves for the 40 days of Lent will be good environmentally for the Earth, considering how many D-cell batteries she won't go through in that period.

But still, we find her public display of faith to be pretty much the ultimate in hypocrisy. This is a woman who proudly promotes infanticide, is an active obstacle to national security, and is a serial liar. And we're guessing that when she goes to confession, she has so many sins to confess that she has to pay staffers to recite all of the "Hail Marys" that she's racked up each week.

Among those recent sins is Speaker Pelosi's refusal to take a hard line condemning the blatant anti-semitism of new congressmuslim Ilhan Omar, whose anti-Israel rhetoric is actually supported by other blithering idiots on the left like AOC. Pelosi has made efforts to pass a nonbinding House resolution that members should probably pull back on bigoted hate speech, or at least try to curtail the amount of spittle spewing from their mouths while screaming invectives. So far, the other Dems aren't buying it because, hey, hate is fun! And the only source of Democrat power.

Of course, Nancy is far from the only politician to callously wrap herself in a religious facade while leading a life of spectacular immorality and straight-up evil.

But because of Lent, for the next 40 days we're forsaking the comfort we normally take in forgiving others for being scurrilous assholes, so we're calling her out.

BONUS: SPEAKING OF MAKING AN ASH OF YOURSELF...

Father Jolson sometimes got carried away.
FROM THE VAULT: THE SANDERS OF TIME...


Just a reminder that Sunday is Daylight Saving Time day, meaning that at some point in the middle of the night you should set your clock forwards or backwards by an hour - we don't really know which way and don't particularly care, other than to hate it. All we know with certainty is that we're going to have nausea and jet lag for the next two weeks, and it's the government's fault.

Expiration Candidates

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, 2020, candidates, Hillary
If Cory Booker had hair, it should be standing on end about now.
Hillary Clinton has officially declared that she is not running for President in 2020, but says will take an active role by working with the candidates in the crowded Democratic field. In much the same way, we believe, that John McClane took an active role working with the terrorists at Nakatomi Tower.

Mind you, we do believe that Hillary has no intention of "running." This is, after all, a woman who has to pay heavily-muscled men to carry her up and down stairs when not dragging her limp body into a waiting getaway van after a public appearance.

But not for a second do we believe she's given up her all-encompassing obsession with becoming President. Rather, we expect her to maintain an active public profile while all the other Dems batter each other on the stump, after which she'll step out on the blood-soaked battlefield and graciously accept the "draft Hillary" movement which someone with no traceable connection to the Clinton Foundation has thoughtfully and generously funded.

Brain Drained


Don't worry, you're not failing to get the "joke" above because there basically isn't one. We just needed to fill some space today, liked the picture, and added what amounts to a non sequitur of a word balloon.

Oh, we THOUGHT about trying to make it vaguely relevant by calling the critter "Alpaca Ocasio-Cortez" who wants everything to take a hard turn to the left, but once we've called the beast an Alpaca, it screws up the double-l Llama joke. Who knew that comedy was both art and science?

All of which is way too much explanation (and an implied apology) for not having anything more substantive today. The "news" is just stupid and unsubstantial, as is pretty much always the case these days, and leaves us frustrated.

Meanwhile, it sounds like the Dems are going to have a supersized subpoena party, dragging in for questioning everyone Donald Trump has ever interacted with in hopes of building a case for impeachment. To which we say "fie upon them!" And we're not talking about fresh fie, either - but rotten, maggot-infested fie, mixed with sharp bits of gravel and thrown with considerable force.

Meanwhile, President Trump remains unbowed and just gave a two-hour barn burner of a speech which we didn't technically listen to, but in principle we're glad that he's still hugging the American flag and giving the Leftists hell. Which is what they so richly deserve.


Another reason we're not being very productive today (unless you count the phlegm still spraying about the room from our ongoing bronchial cough) is that we just finished doing our taxes, which always leaves us brain dead for several days.

Thanks to Trump's tax reductions (especially the increased standard deduction this year), there was no need for us to itemize every infinitesimal little transaction we made all year. Which, of course, we didn't know for sure until we'd fed every freaking receipt into Turbotax, and gotten a cheery computer message saying "Wow! You could have skipped all of this!"

Interestingly, our total net business income for the year came out to about $1200, yet at the same time, our Medicare payments have tripled because the government believes us to be members of the Evil Rich (based on returns from a couple years ago).

We choose to find this mildly amusing, especially after about three shots of Clan MacGregor. Which, by the way, is not the top choice of Scotch among the Evil Rich.

And with that, we'll shut up and throw the comments section open for YOUR observations about the news, the world, the weekend, or anything else you want to talk about. Someone throw us a lifeline here...!

Congressional Testy Moaning

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, trump, cohen, testimony, bullshit
The question everyone in America should be asking right now.
Politicians and alleged newscasters have been shocked, shocked, by the carefully choreographed Congressional testimony of prison-bound, disbarred, sleazeball former Trump attorney, Michael Cohen.

Disclaimer: we haven't really trained our laser-like focus on said testimony because (and we want to put this as delicately as possible) circle-jerks may be fun for participants but offer very little to outside observers.

To the best of our nearly nonexistent knowledge, Cohen hasn't produced a single substantive charge against Trump, other than to allege that the President is egotistical, sometimes uses bad language, puzzlingly finds porn stars and Playboy playmates attractive (and would rather that his wife not find out), that he's a wheeler-dealer, and that he believes some starving, corrupt, disease-ridden countries are "shitholes."

Of course, Cohen has hinted at much more and much worse. Which could be really problematic if hints from a serial liar carried any legal weight. But they don't. Still, that hasn't prevented pointless exchanges like this during testimony:

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: Is it possible that (Trump's) whole family is conflicted or compromised with a foreign adversary in the months before an election?
Cohen (reading from script): Yes.

Wow! And is it possible that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz uses still-warm pureed fetuses in the shower to make her hair wavy? Also yes! Isn't "possible" a wonderful word?

The Left gleefully believes that if Donald Trump can be proven guilty of anything - no matter how slight - that by extension he's guilty of everything and can be impeached and removed from office. But they're forgetting that for many of us who voted for Trump, his character flaws have been known from the start and weren't considered disqualifiers for the filthy, stinking job that absolutely needed doing. And which he's doing pretty darn well.

BONUS: WHAT A DEALDO

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, trump, kim, north korea, summit, nuclear, vietnam

While the Left was busy trying to sabotage the President of the United States, the President himself was in Vietnam trying to strike a nuclear disarmament deal with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

It is "possible" (we told you we like that word!) that Kim was aware of the attempted stateside tar-and-feathering of Mr. Trump, and decided that it would give him a leg up at the bargaining table. Which is why, when the vicious little despot announced that he wasn't willing to put anything substantive on the bargaining table, he was probably shocked by Trump's announcement that the summit was over and that he was leaving immediately without even staying for the fancy diplomatic lunch.

Frankly, we think Mr. Trump handled this situation perfectly. There was never any guarantee of a deal, but Trump at least brought Kim to the table and, once the situation became clear, made him look like a petulant little jackass.

Compare this to the years of ineffectual ass-kissing we saw from Barack Obama (with North Korea and especially Iran), and we're definitely putting this one into the "win" category for the President.

Her "Owe" Face

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, aoc, green new deal, trillion, black history month, billy porter, gown, academy awards

Some might accuse us of making a cheap joke by mocking Alibaba Ocrazio-Corkboardz yet again, but there's actually nothing cheap about it.  Because the American Action Forum just tallied up the expenses associated with the freshman Congresswoman's "Green New Deal" and come up with a final cost of $93 trillion.

Of which, the amount you'll personally owe will be between $361,010 and $653,010 over a 10 year period. Which might sound like a lot of money, but in fairness is less than a tenth of what you'll receive from Netflix in return for the rights to your inspiring life story. Well, if you're a wild-eyed young socialist who can't do math.

If, on the other hand, you're a typical American who actually works for money, those sums may be somewhat more difficult to come up with since, during that same 10 year period, your home and workplace will both be demolished- eventually to be replaced with more energy-efficient structures built by illegal workers with union-mandated siesta times.

But at least the fossil fuel-free future will be bright for our children and grandchildren. Or would be, if we were allowed to have any. Because AOC (as she is called) has also suggested that humans stop procreating owing to the adverse effect those damn babies will have on climate change.

Meaning, to paraphrase "The Princess Bride," every aspect of her Green New Deal is literally "inconceivable."

BONUS: SCARLETT O'HARA IS THE NEW BLACK

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, aoc, green new deal, trillion, black history month, billy porter, gown, academy awards

We sincerely applaud entertainer Bill Porter for wearing a stunning tuxedo-gown to this year's Oscar Awards ceremony. Not because it's a great look for every guy (though Porter actually pulls it off pretty well), but because we think this single photo is the perfect negation of the falsified image of a dangerously racist and homophobic America which was recently propagated by Jussie Smollet and legions of Fake News people, celebrities, and social justice warriors.

The reality is that our nation is more accepting than any other on Earth. And when a gay black man can wear a gown to a prestigious public event while accompanied by his husband without fear of reprisal, it's because, in the words of Rhett Butler, "frankly, the American people don't give a damn."

That's actually worth celebrating, and not the worst possible finish for an otherwise regrettable Black History Month.

From The Vault: Statue of Limitations

Before going any farther, we'd like to kick off today's post with an idea we had which was inspired by the Jussie Smollett fiasco and our desire to bring together people of different races and political ideologies...

Washing instructions: extreme cold, no bleach
Yep, that should do the trick!

Although truthfully, rather than a hat which heals our nation's great divide, what we really needed today was a thinking cap...because we couldn't bring ourselves to do a new cartoon about the Oscars, owing to the fact that we don't give a tinker's damn about anything the idiots in Hollywood want to jam down our throats or up our rear ends.

Which is why it seemed a good time to revisit this cartoon from January 19, 2015...

Today is Martin Luther King Jr Day. And what better way to celebrate the progress of Dr. King's magnificent vision than to take note of the fact that in today's America, "racism" is defined as failing to give enough statuettes to black millionaires in Hollywood.

At least, that's the opinion of Reverend Al "Taxes Is For White Folks" Sharpton, who has somehow become the ludicrous heir apparent to Dr. King's legacy. Following the announcement of this year's Oscar nominations, Reverend Al called an emergency meeting of his Diversity Task Force to address the fact that there were no black actors or directors nominated for top awards.

"In the time of Ferguson," Sharpton said while squinting into his word-a-day dictionary, "that is incongruous!"

Fortunately, the Diversity Task Force came up with a brilliant idea and announced that the always-diverse Black Entertainment Television network will now host the all-black Hollywood "Sharpie Awards."

There will be awards for "Best Blacktor" and "Best Blacktress," as well as awards for "Best Denzel Washington Movie," "Best Movie With Tyler Perry In A Housedress," "Best Movie That Oprah Had Any Damn Thing To Do With," and the "Samuel Motherfucking Jackson Lifetime Achievement Award" which, it is rumored, will be posthumously awarded to Ferguson's own Michael Brown for his non-moving performance in "Hands Up, Don't Shoot."

Currently, neither the Reverend Sharpton nor his Diversity Task Force has announced plans for a Martin Luther King "Content Of Character" award.

Jussie's Girl

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, jussie smollett, hoax, empire, lefty lucy, racist, shit stain

Waves of sadness swept through the nation's progressives yesterday when it was revealed that, tragically, Trump voters don't actually hate black people or gay people, don't hurl hurtful epithets, and don't try to hang actors from spindly sidewalk trees in the midst of a polar vortex, while being careful not to bruise their victim's tuna sandwich from Subway.

Rather, it now seems that Smollett staged the entire thing, including sending a terroristic-threat letter filled with white powder, and his oh-so-tearful ABC interview, all in a ploy to get a pay raise on his TV show.

That's right, this wasn't even really about Trump-hating (though Smollett successfully guessed that this would put the media solidly on his side). Rather, it was about getting more money for the already overpaid little mofo, and using any tool - including inciting a race war - to get it.

Let's be clear here. We already know that Smollett took a big, steaming dump on white men in general and Trump-supporters in particular. But he also dropped big, squishy deuces on the legacies of Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr, Matthew Shepard, and every other person who has ever suffered real discrimination because of their race or sexual orientation. Smollett took all of that history and all of that pain and thought, "I can make money with this." If there's a worse racist than Smollett in the country right now, we certainly can't think of who it might be.

Although there are plenty of people in second place: the "news" reporters, tweeting celebs, and politicians who gleefully disregarded all of the immediately glaring flaws in Smollett's preposterous story, and instead ramped up hate and racial division in our country because that's what they love to do, and that's what their political ambitions are built on. Meanwhile, Trump and Trump-supporters just quietly go on with their business of treating other folks equally while building an economy that is demonstrably more favorable for blacks and hispanics than anything dreamed of under Barack Obama.

Smollett's crass scheme was to get more money and bigger parts. We're pretty sure that the money won't be happening, but we rather hope he will be getting those bigger parts, lube free, every time he tries to shower in prison for the next several years.

Of course, he's not off to the hoosegow quite yet. He still needs to complete his contractual commitment to his miserable TV show. Which, we're guessing, won't take long...

Berned Again

So many Democrats are currently throwing their hats into the presidential ring, it's like watching lemmings cascading from a fiscal cliff.

The latest entrant is the 77-years-young Socialist Bernie Sanders. Considering that absolutely nothing about the candidate or his ideas is truly new, we feel like it's appropriate to commemorate his entry into the race with some similarly shopworn cartoons from the political past.

Don't think of it as laziness on our part. Think of it as "redistribution of humor."

Try The Crow!

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, presidents day, clintons, trump, smollett, hoax, national emergency, biden

We really do hope that Hillary Clinton is enjoying a nice mouthful of crow this Presidents Day. A meal which she'll be sharing with a lot of Democrats whose insane natterings are catching up with them in recent news cycles.

High in those ranks, and we do mean "rank," would be alleged actor Jussie Smollett whose allegations of being the victim - rather than the instigator - of a hate crime have completely unravelled...

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, presidents day, clintons, trump, smollett, hoax, national emergency, biden

As a general rule of thumb which is almost always true, if a "hate crime" has no witnesses other than the "victim," and involves a MAGA hat, a noose, or a swastika, the story is a lie. That may sound harsh, but in case after case after case it's true. Victimhood is the Olympic Gold Medal of Progressivism, and in today's media climate it's a very low bar to clear.

But is there any real harm committed when so-called "hate crimes" are completely faked? Absolutely. Because it makes any real victims in the future less likely to be believed, increases hate and division in our country, and steals resources from police and intelligence agencies.

Remember when Bill Clinton was president and there was a rash of black church burnings committed by godawful racists?! It got national attention (albeit a lot less attention was given to the subsequent revelation that the churches were being burned by blacks). But so serious was this supposed outbreak of racism that president Clinton reassigned the agencies who were supposed to be keeping an eye on Osama bin Laden to solving the church burnings. Yeah, that worked out well.

Smollet, who apparently hired his "attackers" from the cast of his own TV show, needs to go to jail for a long time over this stunt. And every Trump voter should receive groveling apologies from the numerous "news" outlets, politicians, and celebrities who gleefully spread this appalling lie...though that will never happen.

And speaking of things that will never happen, let us turn our sights on Joe Biden as he ramps up his efforts to become our next president...

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, presidents day, clintons, trump, smollett, hoax, national emergency, biden

Recreating Obama's infamous "Apology Tour," Joe Biden traveled to Munich to disparage our nation as an "embarrassment" for our treatment of (ahem) "refugees." Apparently Old Joe hasn't really been paying attention to what's been happening to Germany now that they're drowning in hostile refugees.

It turns out that it's just never a good idea to look to Germany for moral guidance when it comes to setting government policies for dealing with large masses of people.

Rather, we prefer President Trump's distinctive style...

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, presidents day, clintons, trump, smollett, hoax, national emergency, biden

Trump's declaration of a national emergency to build the wall strikes us as no more nutty (and not much less) than all of the nonsense currently being committed by the Left. So despite the fact that he could have gotten better deals (which were on the table) in the recent past, we're more or less cool with him getting the job done, or at least started, the "Trump way."

In a world where everything is pretty much crazy all the time, the wall comes pretty darn close to making sense. Which is, as they say, good enough for government work.

Merry Kiss Miss!

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, valentine, busty ross

Our Monday moaning post has proved accurate, and we're still dividing our time between coughing up organs (we lost our little-used spleen, but are hoping to hang on to most of our liver as it's essential in the biohazard-style processing of Clan MacGregor) or alternately enjoying codeine-induced hallucinations.

For instance, we had a wild one a day or so ago in which Nancy Pelosi actually disciplined a hijab-wearing Democrat congresswoman for making wildly anti-Semitic tweets (and this just after the same shrill woman demanded that Homeland Security be defunded!). Crazy, huh?!

But rather than leave you empty-handed today (and Friday, for that matter), we're at least sharing this vintage Valentine which aspires to Make America Smooch Again.

Frankly, if Busty Ross was to set up a kissing booth near the Rio Grande, and charge one brick for a quick lip-lock, we could get Trump's wall built in no time. And the line of men waiting for their turn would probably make a functional wall and the mortar set on the real thing.

As we said above, we're taking the rest of the week off to finish recovering and attend to some chores. Although we'll try to return Monday for President's Day. Or, as we like to think of it, "Still Not Hillary Day."

Not much of a post today, and quite possibly for the rest of the week, owing to the fact that we've come down with an explosive, honking cough the likes of which haven't been heard since Hillary was spraying supporters with blood-flecked phlegm on the campaign trail.

To treat this condition, we've been given a prescription for a codeine-based cough syrup so strong that it makes cogent thought almost impossible. Seriously, this stuff must have been what Congresswoman Allahu Akbar Ocarina-Goretex was on when she posted the insane "Green New Deal" talking points on her website, before denying that the document was real or had ever existed. For someone new to Washington, she's certainly caught on quickly to how the game is played.

And speaking of lying liars who get caught lying, howzabout this...

Smoking gun or flaming arrow?
Senator Elizabeth "Princess Running Gag" Warren officially declared that she was running for President only days after it was revealed that she'd officially claimed to be "American Indian" on a registration card for the State Bar of Texas. A bit of misinformation she added specifically and only for the purpose of career advancement while, incidentally, elbowing aside actual minorities competing for the same positions. At least Governor Northam didn't actually try to convince anyone he was Michael Jackson.

By the way, while Warren may now be admitting that she is not a POC, here's a quick article which proves without doubt that she is a POS. 

And that's pretty much all that the pharmaceuticals coursing through our bloodstream are going to let us say for now. Would that the same were true of Democrats.

Suspicious Van

"It's also why my eyes are brown."
For roughly the kajillionth time, President Donald Trump thwarted expectations for his State of the Union speech by delivering an inspiring address which called for Americans on both sides of the political aisle to come together in harmony to rebuild and reinforce all that is best about America. So positive was his message that even the Democrats exercising their "wearing white" privilege stood to applaud him. At least, until he pointed out that America will never become a socialist country.

Additionally 76% of polled CNN viewers who actually saw the speech had a favorable impression of it, which is why the (ahem) "news" network had to immediately go into spin mode for those lazy viewers who skipped the speech in favor of CNN's recrap...er, recap...which was delivered in part by Bizarro-world former Obama official (and 9-11 "truther") Van Jones.

For those who may have blissfully forgotten Jones, allow us to refresh your memory...


Before becoming a CNN political expert, Jones had described himself as a radical, a communist, and an anarchist who sees the green movement as means to accomplish a radical class restructuring of America. This was, by the way, at a time when Obama was busily appointing Czars without fear of Democrats being offended by the obvious Russian connection.

But as much as we'd simply like to write off Van Jones as a camera-fellating Affirmative Action moron, we must admit that his dangerous radical agenda is gaining more traction among Trump's (and America's) political enemies in Washington.

In a jaw-dropping editorial in the Wall Street Journal called "Who's Afraid of Socialism?," the actual proposals being floated by elected officials on the Left are listed...and they're terrifying.

• Adoption of "Medicare For All," which would give the government ultimate power over how much (and what kind) of medical treatment you do or don't get. Literally life and death control of the citizenry.

• The Green "New Deal" would basically destroy our country by creating a legal requirement that within 10 short years, the U.S. would be entirey "carbon neutral." In other words, we would dismantle nearly 90% of our current energy system and replace it (ha!) with unaffordable, unreliable, or uninvented alternatives which would force massive degradation in transportation, manufacturing, and our overall quality of life.

Government Jobs For All would assure 100% participation in the work force by guaranteeing a government job - or at least a paycheck - for anyone who wants one. And yes, many of the previously unemployable would` find themselves staring uncomprehendingly at the computer screens which will determine whether or not you can have a life-saving surgery. What could possibly go wrong?

Corporate Control, as proposed by Elizabeth "Why yes, I DID try to advance my law career by lying my bright white butt off about being an American Indian" Warren, would fundamentally change corporations valued at over $1 billion. Employees would elect 40% of company directors, who would in turn be required to consider "benefits" other than just making a good return for shareholders - with government overseers thrown into the mix just to make sure no one forgets that capitalism is a sin.

Massive Tax Increases will of course be necessary for all of this. Higher taxes on the evil rich, on the dead evil rich, and on the evil middle class who aspire to becoming the evil rich (formerly known as "the American Dream.")

In other words, the Van Jones crowd - which encompasses pretty much every Democrat in Congress at this point - wants the opposite of what is good for our nation, and the opposite of what our very unusual President and a majority of the American people believe we need to be pursuing in a bipartisan way.

Put another way, the Democrat alternative to the State of the Union is a state of disaster.

Between a Rocker and a Hard Place

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, trump, sotu, superbowl, unity, wall, ginsburg

We'd really love to give a point-by-point breakdown of Trump's State of the Union address, as well as our customary analytical breakdown of the most subtle and meaningful bits. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, Trump is still hours away from speaking...so just like the professional journalists, we'll just have to make things up while trying to keep a straight face.

Which won't be easy - after all, it's being reported that the primary thrust of Trump's speech will be to call for national Unity. And while he's at it, we hope he also calls for the successful development of cold fusion, lasting peace in the Middle East, affordable jetpacks for personal flying, decent "Star Wars" sequels, magic weight-loss pills and, most importantly, McRibs being served at McDonald's all year long.

Because all of those things are going to happen way before we see anything like unity in this country again. People flat out hate one another and can find no common ground. Even the tepid halftime show at the actual (and remarkably boring) Superbowl was steeped in controversy over not being controversial enough.

Some people even had a problem with Gladys Knight beautifully singing our national anthem because she gave it too much gravitas and respect. For those holding this opinion about our national anthem and the national treasure that is Gladys Freaking Knight, we will gently suggest that you might benefit from taking the "Midnight Train to Auschwitz."

But back to the State of the Union, which Nancy Pelosi has so generously offered to hold in "her" house (although we'd like to see her property tax receipts to prove it). Maxine Waters went on a long rant telling people not to watch the speech under any circumstances because "Trump has told lies 6000 times! We've counted them!" and she also hints that there's some chance that people who look at him will turn into pillars of salt, which presents a special (and no doubt targeted) risk to black Americans who have a tendency toward hypertension.

Still, SOME people will see Trump's speech - including a bunch of whackjobs who are being invited into the House of Representatives as "special guests" of the Democrats. Artesia Ocarina-Courtdate has invited the strident anti-Kavanaugh harpy who attacked Jeff Flake in an elevator. Kamala Harris is bringing a woman who lost her home in a wildfire which was, purportedly, started by off-gassing from Donald Trump's hair.

Kirsten Gillibrand is bringing a transgender Naval officer, who will burst into tears whenever Trump mentions "seamen." A number of illegal immigrants will also be in attendance, and there are unconfirmed rumors that a couple of pregnant women whose due dates aligned with the speech will be present to have their gasping children dismembered on the chamber floor.

So all in all, a big entertainment spectacle which will produce...well...pretty much nothing, we're guessing. Although there's at least a chance that Trump will take the opportunity to get the Wall moving by declaring a national emergency.

And if you can look at all the stories we just listed above and NOT think we're having a national emergency, well, you're just not paying attention.

SOTU FASHION STATEMENT...
And forceps and bone-saws make fabulous accessories!
BONUS: RUTH BADER GINSBURG FINALLY SIGHTED!

After more than two months out of the public eye, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg emerged from solitude to attend a small musical which was written and performed in her honor. People attending the event swear that the aged, health-challenged Justice looked spectacularly well, vigorous, vivacious, and glamorous...


Unfortunately, no actual pictures of Ginsburg at the event have emerged, which is why we were forced to fill the available space with this fascinating and completely unrelated photo of a "teratoma tumor," a benign growth in humans which can develop teeth, hair, rudimentary eyes, and even tiny little arms and legs without being Justice Ginsburg!

We don't actually know if these odd growths can also adjudicate legal cases, and we weren't about to do a Google search for "teratoma tumors" AND "lawyers." There are some things you just can't un-see...

The Hole Truth

Frankly, we're not really enthusiastic about "trial by yearbook," but since Democrat presidential wannabees like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker put such a high value on this kind of "evidence" during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, we're willing to reach across the aisle and accept their notion that decades-old embarrassments can appropriately be used to destroy lives and political careers.

In this case, we're talking about Virginia's Democrat Governor (and baby murder enthusiast) Ralph Northam and the strange case of a photo on his college yearbook page which apparently shows him wearing blackface or a Ku Klux Klan robe. Northam apologized for the photo and the hurtfulness of his actions, and claimed he couldn't recall whether he was the person in the photo portraying Al Jolson or the one impersonating former Democrat Senator (and Klan official) Robert Byrd.

Northam later "clarified" that he was neither person, had nothing to apologize for other than his previous apology, and had never ever ever appeared in blackface except for the one time he literally rubbed Shinola on his face to imitate Michael Jackson for a dance contest. No, really. And when reporters asked about it, he offered to prove his case by doing the moonwalk but was stopped by his wife. Which, in our book, is a damn shame.

And as long as we're linking the late term abortion-happy Virginia Governor and Groundhog Day...

Okay, we honestly hope that Justice Ginsburg gets well soon. But this gag, suggested by our erudite friend John F. Di Leo, was just too good not to share.

Fetal Distraction

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, abortion, cuomo, lorena bobbitt, late term, my body, woman's body

Believe it or not, we're actually trying to make a serious point in the cartoon above (with a tip of our hat to Jonathan Swift and his "modest proposal").

Considering the nightmarish abortion laws being pushed and passed (something that fewer and fewer babies will get to experience), just what is the difference between going Texas Chainsaw Massacre on a baby in the process of being born, or slicing and dicing a gentleman's johnson which happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Both baby and man are separate individuals from the woman, with their own DNA, blood type, heart beat, and hopes to survive the experience of intimate contact with a woman. Both are presumably someplace where they were invited by the woman to be. And both are intended by nature to be pulled intact out of a vagina in order to go on with the rest of their lives.

Granted, our example is extreme - but where is the error in our thinking? We've certainly got science and biology on our side. The only difference is legal (ie, semantic) - and the apparent belief that life itself should be defined by neither physicians, philosophers, nor theologians - but by politicians. Who are technically the lowest life forms on Earth.

FROM THE VAULT...






AND ON A PERSONAL NOTE...
Happy Birthday to my father (who art in Heaven, albeit not necessarily the fanciest part, and quite likely on probation). He was conceived under circumstances which would likely lead to an abortion these days (the product of my paternal grandmother and a traveling piano teacher who apparently also gave organ lessons), and I'm damn glad he made it into this world. He created a lifetime of happiness for a lot of people.
