Clay Jones is really hitting them out of the park lately. Some of the things he’s written recently about voter fraud not existing, collusion between Wikileaks and Russia, and Donald Trump being on cocaine are so recklessly stupid that they have literally dropped my jaw.
I get the impression that his daily routine is turning on CNNBSBC news, freaking out, and translating an impending caffeine- and propaganda-fueled anxiety attack into a liberal propaganda-laden political cartoon.
It’s amusing, in a sick way, but it’s also troubling, because as a certain emotionally unhinged drug-addicted lunatic right-winger named Rush Limbaugh (no, not Donald Trump) once said, “Words mean things.” For once, Rush was actually right!
As in a previous article, “Clay Jones’ cartoons and debunking liberal propaganda,” see any quote in context by clicking the quoted text such as the one immediately below, which is hyperlinked to the source. Last time, I examined six of Jones’ reality-manglings. This time, I’m only going to focus on three, because I’m really going to tear them apart at the anus and let them bleed all over your screen. It will be glorious.
“Many people say it’s not important who exposes the leaks. … These ‘patriots’ don’t care where the information is coming from. They don’t care if it’s a foreign power meddling in our affairs. They even refuse to acknowledge the Russians are behind the hacks.”
Shooting the messenger, are we? That’s always rational.
In case you didn’t guess, Jones is talking about Wikileaks and claims that Julian Assange is working with Russia in some conspiracy to tamper with the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
Yup, a dude who dismisses critical thinking as “conspiracy theories” is now peddling them.
If Vladimir Putin calls you up and says “Hey bud, look out your window right now,” and you look out your window, and there’s your significant other making out with someone, would you get political and start making excuses for your significant other because you think Putin is a badguy or that Russians are scary?
“Vladimir Putin has no right to meddle in my affairs!” you will shout indignantly to your cat!
Or would you going to immediately drop the phone and do something? Or would you just going to curl up in a ball and cry? Your cat would never respect you again … not that your cat respects you now.
Would you or would you not be grateful that he pointed it out to you?
This planting of one’s head in the sand is just pathetic. Wikileaks has irrevocably eviscerated Clinton’s career, and the drinkers of the Hillary kool-aid simply can’t look reality in the face. Instead, they resort to straw men and red herrings.
Founder of Wikileaks Julian Assange himself explained that there is a seemingly purposeful blurring between DNC hacks and DNC leaks. Nor is Assange beholden to Russia in anyway. He is being given sanctuary by Ecuador, although it looks like our government is putting pressure on Ecuador to evict him from their embassy in London … although U.S. officials have denied putting pressure on Ecuador … although pressuring Ecuador to evict Assange and then denying having had anything to do with it is exactly what I would expect U.S. officials to do.
Oh, and those mythical 17 agencies that “confirmed” that Russia was behind the email hacks? Those are one guy who oversees 17 intelligence-related organizations, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Who is James Clapper? This guy:
Senator Ron Wyden: Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?
Clapper: No, sir.
He perjured himself at a United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing March 12, 2013.
Of course, ABC stood rank-and-file with Clapper.
In fact, the whole “Russia did it” thing started with a complicated series of journalistic goofs that escalated to former Newsweek editor Kurt Eichenwald publishing some things that weren’t true. Sputnik’s Cassandra Fairbanks said, “This perfect storm of human error resulted in a new Newsweek piece by Eichenwald, pushing a massive conspiracy theory and accusing Sputnik News — and therefore the ‘Russians’ — of working with the Trump campaign.” Eichenwald, a Clinton supporter, was happy for the false information to simply remain in the public sphere. Of course, Newsweek neither corrected nor retracted the misleading piece.
And by the way, as far as leaks go, And DNC staffer Seth Rich, whom Assange suggested was a source of leaks, was American, not Russian. Well, he was before he was assassinated. Now he’s turning into American soil. And as far as actual hacks go, Guccifer is Romanian, not Russian. Just saying.
So in summary, Wikileaks leaked documents do not come from Russia. DNC hacks also do not come from Russia.
However, even if either of them had, I think they’d have been sexier. But it would not make any of the information released any less true or of any less relevance or value to the American people. Even though CNN’s Chris Cuomo says it’s illegal to read them. (It’s not, so help yourself.)
Speaking of patriots — or as Jones calls them, “patriots” — what kind of slimy bastard tries to downplay the truth in an election? Really?
And when it comes to tampering with other countries’ electoral processes, let’s not forget that the United States has been toppling legitimate governments and democratically elected leaders across the globe and replacing them with puppets friendly to American interests for decades. It’s kind of our thing. But if someone interferes with our election process — well, that’s just wrong!
I think Marco Rubio best illustrated how — despite all the bravado, indignitation, and bluster — no one in this election is really concerned about the integrity of the voting process. They’re just concerned about winning and looking as good as possible.
“I want to warn my fellow Republicans who may want to capitalize politically on these leaks,” Rubio said. “Today it is the Democrats. Tomorrow it could be us.”
Note the total lack of concern over providing the truth to Americans versus an immersive unease about looking down the barrel of the gun of public transparency. Ho ho! Fuck America! But your stupid precious political party — now that’s something to worry about.
In the text accompanying this cartoon, Jones also says, “There should be universal outrage in this nation over Russia’s attempt to screw with our Democratic process.”
Although there should also be universal outrage over the Democratic National Convention’s attempts to screw with our democratic process, which leaked emails have thoroughly demonstrated. (Oh, not to mention the murder of Seth Rich. But whatever.) Where’s your outrage, Democrats? Where’s your outrage, all ye high-and-mighty liberals? Tucking your tails and voting for the vicious harpy who had him axed, eh? If you were going to vote for Bernie and you’re still voting Democratic, you’re officially OK with having your candidate undermined by your own party and being told what’s good for you.
Ugh. That’s just pathetic.
The DNC sabotaged Bernie Sanders. The man who very well could have been president — he was a far stronger candidate than Hillary Clinton — was stabbed in the back by his own party against the wishes of a great deal of the party’s members. The darkest irony, of course, is that the Democratic Party is named after a mechanism of politics that is supposed to be by the people and for the people but is instead being manipulated by the rich and powerful for the rich and powerful.
This leads us to Jones’ next whopper.
“Never mind the fact that voter fraud doesn’t really exist. Let me write that again. It doesn’t exist.”
I think my heart skipped a beat when I read that. Whether it’s denial or ignorance, this is such an astoundingly false statement that it makes me wonder just who this dude is.
Clay Jones alleges that voter fraud doesn’t exist.
Let me write that again.
Clay Jones alleges that voter fraud doesn’t exist.
What else doesn’t exist? Rabbits? Mustaches? Bananas? Pittsburgh?
To claim that voter fraud doesn’t exist is to claim that people never cheat. How absurd a claim is that?
“Questioner: I would just like to know what you can say to reassure us that this election will not be rigged or stolen?
Barack Obama: Well, I tell you what, it helps in Ohio that we’ve got Democrats in charge of the machines. But, look, I come from Chicago. Some want to be honest, it is not as if it is just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past. Sometimes Democrats have, too. You know, whenever people are in power, they have this tendency to try to, you know, tilt things in their direction.”
Easy. That was just an appetizer.
Next, attend the tale of the Battle of Athens, Tennessee. After World War I, the GIs returned to find that a wealthy democrat took political control of the county via — you guessed it — voter fraud.
Political analyst and activist Myles Hoenig discusses how “rigging elections is All-American.”
“Hillary Clinton, as proven by WikiLeaks but long suspected by Sanders’s supporters, clearly manipulated everything from the actual ballots (gone missing) to media support in providing questions in advance to her at debates,” said Hoenig. ““The Democrats were silent when George W. Bush rigged the election in Florida so out of mutual respect for each other’s minimal hold on the electorate’s sense of fair play, will likely give the Democrats a pass, too.”
Now for the good stuff.
Check out James O’Keefe’s “Rigging the Election – Video I: Clinton Campaign and DNC Incite Violence at Trump Rallies” and “Rigging the Election – Video II: Mass Voter Fraud.”
These are worth the short time it takes to watch them both in their entirety.
The Hill reports that Scott Foval, national field director for Americans United for Change, stepped down whereas the description for for second video says that he was fired. At any rate, there’s one democracy-trampling douchebag out of the way.
The Hill also reports that Robert Creamer (I know! That name!) from liberal consulting firm Democracy Partners also stepped down. That’s two democracy-trampling douchebags down.
Of course, neither of those people had any reason to step down because voter fraud doesn’t exist. I mean, Jones said so. Twice! That makes it twice as true!
My favorite part in the first video is when one of Clinton’s people says “It doesn’t matter what the friggin’ legal and ethics people say, we need to win this motherfucker.” Sheesh, those friggin’ legal and ethics people.
Ok, that was the soup and salad. Here’s the main course.
First, just a basic overview of voter fraud. I know, how can there be a Wikipedia article about something that doesn’t exist? Relax, it’s OK. There is one about Santa Claus, too.
This article discusses how arguments that voter fraud doesn’t exist are flawed because they neglect to recognize the weakness (or absence) of mechanisms for detecting and prosecuting in-person voter fraud.
This article is a massive and comprehensive three-part compilation of instances of voter fraud from in-person fraud to large-scale fraud involving up to millions of transgressions at a time.
Here is a less comprehensive list of ten instances of voter fraud, including Colorado’s most famous dead voter, Sara Sosa. Hey, if you can baptize dead people, why not let them vote? Those things both make sense, right?
I would offer dessert, but after all that, I think a barf bag might be more appropriate.
Just kidding! You totally get dessert!
In my last article on this subject, “Clay Jones’ cartoons and debunking liberal propaganda,” this was the sixth and final quote with which I took issue: “Trump bragged about the polls that showed him winning the debate. Of course these polls were online polls where the voters can vote, refresh, vote, refresh, vote, refresh, etc.”
Golly, that sounds like … it soooooounds like … could it be?
Sweet crackers, I love my job.
Okay, now it’s barf bag time.
Although it’s fun to make believe, voter fraud — like rabbits, mustaches, bananas, and probably Pittsburgh, although I’ve never been — is unfortunately real.
Right now, it’s convenient for the Democratic Party and it’s zombie-like constituency to pretend that voter fraud is not real, because they use it extensively (which is not to suggest that the Republican party is innocent).
In fact, George Soros’ own voting machine company, SmartMatic, is supplying voting machines in Arizona, California, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin for this election.
If you don’t know who George Soros is, hi! Welcome to 2016. We don’t have flying skateboards yet, but we do have cars that drive themselves, and you probably shouldn’t be voting. Soros a leftist billionaire credited with starting the #BlackLivesMatter movement to create social instability and a political puppetmaster who pulls Hillary Clinton’s strings.
Here’s an explanation of how secure electronic voting machines are compared to Las Vegas slot machines in terms of accountability, transparency, and security — things some people think are important in voting procedure. And here’s what apparently happens in states that used electronic voting machines versus states that use voting procedures that involve a paper trail.
Nothing suspicious there, huh?
Take a look at that list of states again.
Nope. Nothing suspicious there, either.
Democrats argue that strict voter ID laws and other stringent voter laws keep minorities, immigrants, and some others from being able to vote.
I’m not saying that argument is totally invalid; that’s not my point. My point is that they use this platform to keep voting laws as loose as possible and then exploit them in their own favor.
If I were freaking out over wanting my liberal candidate to win and had little more than a brain stem and whatever my television tells me to work with, I might also pretend — or hell, maybe even believe — that these tried-and-true election strategies don’t exist.
But unlike Jones, I don’t think I’d ever be foolish enough to make it a public stance.
“I didn’t believe Trump has a cocaine habit. I thought it was irresponsible for Howard Dean to accuse him of it but now … looking at his history of projecting … yeah, he might be dancing with a white rabbit.”
This quote actually comes from the same cartoon as the last one did, which means that I get to rip that one two new assholes. This is my “quit hitting yourself” moment, not that I really expect him to.
I’ve worked at 13 restaurants and have done way more bartending than I ever wanted to, and I have been a gigging musician most of my life — except for in southern Utah, where it’s just pointless. Pearls before swine, almost no gigs, and — with very few exceptions — insultingly low pay.
Most of my life, including now, I’ve been drug-free, although there was a while back in my Bible Belt days when I smoked marijuana (because I dated a pothead for seven years, which I don’t recommend), and I ate psilocybin mushrooms twice. That’s my entire drug history. I know, it’s not exactly “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” … although incidentally, I do both fear and loathe Las Vegas. If Utah is America’s third chin, Vegas is its herpes sore.
But I’ve been around cocaine plenty of times. You know your job is fun when your boss is doing lines off of your bar during business hours. People are
SUPER FREAKING HYPER
I am going to guess that Clay Jones has never seen someone high on cocaine. They don’t act like Donald Trump acts on camera, even at his most bombastic.
And why would he publicly challenge someone to a drug test if he wouldn’t be able to test clean? That doesn’t make any sense. Would you challenge someone to a footrace if you had a broken leg? No, you do that when you’re sure you can win.
I have an ex who sent the narcotics department undercover to my house. She also had DCF come by to visit and try to drug test me. I told them that I’d be happy to pee in a cup if she did. I never heard back. That’s probably because, like I said, she was (is?) a pothead.
If she, like Clinton, had been clean, she would have had nothing to lose and everything to gain by taking a drug test. I soon after took a ten-panel urine test as well as a hair test, just to twist the knife.
Like my ex, Clinton failed to meet the challenge. If she had, it would have been a heavy blow to Trump as all of his allegations about drug use would have been dispelled. Clinton had nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Assuming that she was clean, of course. What does it suggest that she didn’t take a drug test?
The fact is that Clinton’s health is a touchy subject for her and he campaign, what with all the concussions and seizures and falling down and wacky behavior and email leaks showing her directing her staff to investigate Alzheimer’s medications.
Am I saying that she has Alzheimer’s? No, how could I know that? But leaked emails show her looking into medications for it, debate footage has shown her doing the tell-tale pill-rolling behavior in her right hand, and the shoe fits. It doesn’t mean she has the disease; it means that all signs point to her having the disease. There’s not enough evidence to say for sure.
But there’s a hell of a lot more evidence that supports that theory than there is to support the theory that a relatively calm Donald Trump who weirdly inhales through his nose at a debate is a cokehead.
Oh, and speaking of blow, let’s not forget the Clintons’ cozy relationships with cocaine lords like Jorge Cabrera. Here’s a festive image of Clinton and Cabrera together at the White House. I’m sure it was a white Christmas that year.
In fact, Clintons and cocaine go together like … well, actually they make peanut butter and jelly look like total strangers. That’s so well-established that I would invite anyone to simply search “Clinton” and “cocaine” and browse through what pops up. Here is a fun interview with former secret service agent Gary J. Byrne from the New York Post, though.
Really, you could spend all afternoon reading about the Clintons and cocaine.
Will there be a part 3 in this series? That depends upon Jones and how much more liberal propaganda he can mindlessly slurp up from the mainstream media and regurgitate into his blog.
Mr. Jones, our game is done here. Thank you for a lot of fun here.
