"Irrelevance Park"



Hollywood’s summer box office flopped. Revenues are down nearly 16 percent--a precipitous drop from last year. The NFL ratings are also crashing. "Thursday Night Football" is down 13 percent from last year and fewer fans are attending games. The Emmys ratings have also cratered. What’s causing these declines? It could be that leftist politics are being injected into American entertainment.

Hollywood continues to spew out the same politically correct kitsch. Their movies have become too formulaic and repetitive. There are too many comic book movies chalk full of computer graphics showing crass, physics-defying violence. And of course, political correctness is always the number one priority. Then we’re expected to endure condescending lectures about climate change and social justice from the overpaid actors who show up at the Oscars.

The NFL’s decline is due to too much political correctness as well as the feminization of men. We are supposed to fret about overpaid athletes getting concussions, which can later lead to permanent brain damage. This used to be part of the game. It has always been violent. Like boxing, such violence is part of the attraction. Don’t want to be punch drunk? Don’t box or play football. It’s their choice and they know the risks. It’s difficult for a lot of ticket buyers to feel sympathy for players who command multi-million dollar contracts and then worry about getting injured. 

More rules and penalties made the game safer while also rendering it duller. Some say the game is being feminized. Players wear pink for ‘breast cancer awareness month.’ Pink everywhere.

Then came the national anthem protests. Many players can’t even articulate why they are insulting our country. Maybe something somewhere past present or future is not equal. To them, America is not perfect and must be disrespected until it is. Why can’t they protest on their own time? Last week, a Seattle anthem sitter also gave the black power fist salute after making a tackle. It’s now on the field. Sure, it’s his free speech, but it’s our free speech to speak out against it and stop supporting the NFL. If they can dole out fines for those giving the finger to the crowd or making lewd dances after a score, they can certainly hand out stiff fines to the sitters. 

The latest Emmy award show hit a new low when they devolved into a Trump hate fest. No matter what size screen, the lefty actors seem to think we’re fascinated by their Trump bashing. It has become both tiresome and predictable.

We’ve been seeing Silicon Valley and social media companies try to excoriate conservative voices from the Internet. The big money media and entertainment arms are starting to lose revenue, subscribers and viewers. They’ve long been accustomed to controlling the levers of our culture, but now they’re pushing those levers even more vigorously and blatantly toward collectivism. Americans can boycott and stop participating.

Let’s try reading more books instead.

"Your Guide to The Deep State Swamp"




Trump’s election confirmed one thing for certain: The Deep State is real and spectacular in terms of evil. Their dedication to removing our president from power is relentless. They will continue to work against him and if Trump backs off from any of his campaign promises, they’ll use that against him and claim victory. This is currently being done with his ambivalence on the ‘dreamers,’ which is a lefty name designed to garner sympathy for illegal aliens.

My cartoon shows some of the central players involved in the Deep State. Prominently featured is George Soros. He wants to break America and Europe and see western civilization replaced by a feudal, collectivist, globalist system. With the Illuminati firmly in charge, of course. Soros funds the Antifa and Black Lives Matter movements as well as massive immigration from African and muslim countries. Those low-IQ and under-skilled immigrants don’t assimilate well. They commit crime while demanding free stuff.

The source of the swamp is evil itself. We know that many at the top are Satanic pedophiles. It’s sickening that we’re forced to cough up tax dollars as tribute for these monsters. They don’t even need our taxes—they’re perfectly able to print up as much money as they need, and they’ve done just that to prop up their stock market. We are forced to endure complicated tax forms and cough up our hard-earned money because the Deep State wants us kept poor, fearful and compliant. The tyrants know most people don’t want to lose their stuff and be hassled by the IRS. We go along and don’t push back enough. That attitude puts us on a slippery slope. We slide into the swamp and the Deep State wins.

Currently they’re pushing for more taxes and control by means of their ‘climate change’ con, led by Al Gore. Those who question it are ridiculed, marginalized, or even threatened. Slippery slopes are created to keep people going along with the Deep State program when we should be rounding up people such as Soros. Hillary should have been locked up by now. The central bankers should be broken up and their Federal Reserve needs to be ended.

There are many good people on the Internet who are exposing the Deep State and its legion of lies, but can it lead to real change?

"Far Left Hurricane"



Storm clouds continue to gather on many fronts. There’s a nut job in North Korea with advanced nuclear weapons as well as the ballistic missiles to carry them. His continued saber rattling includes blowing up Guam and an EMP strike on America. The lefties criticize President Trump for speaking out against such bellicosity. Other presidents previously tried to buy off North Korea. The Clinton administration sent former president Jimmy Carter to cut a deal with the hermit state. We ended up giving them $5 billion in aid as well as two nuclear reactors. In return, North Korea agreed to stop pursuing nuclear weapons. We know how well that worked out. Recently the well-aged but still unctuously sanctimonious Carter criticized Trump for not pursuing peace.

Obama kicked the North Korean can down the road, but he maliciously aided Iran by giving them billions of dollars to further their nuclear weapons development. Iran wants to blow up Israel and the muslim Obama apparently likes that idea. The former president also helped muslim terrorists. It’s a familiar lefty pattern. Reward those who hate America and our allies.

There’s another hurricane brewing in the Atlantic even as flooding persists in Houston. President Trump handled himself admirably during the disaster, but still garnered no respect from the left-leaning legacy media. They criticized Trump for donating one million of his own money to help hurricane victims. They even made fun of Melania’s choice of footwear. Hillary and her mainstream media continue to push the ‘Russia’ lie without any evidence whatsoever. Clinton is also cashing in on her election loss with a book in which she whines about Trump ‘looming’ during a debate. The vile, lying money-grubber even has the unmitigated gall to ask over $2,000 per individual greeting on her book tour. 

Michael Moore continues to lead the ‘resistance’ movement against Trump. The round man wants to do anything he can to thwart our President from doing what he was elected to do. Maxine Waters and others on the spoiled brat left incessantly cry for Trump's impeachment.

Soros is a billionaire terrorist who funds the violent Antifa and Black Lives Matter movements. He helps flood Europe with endless immigrants who gladly show up to get free stuff. Some see it as an ideal chance to pursue their hobbies such as rape and pillage. Soros funds such operations as a means to destroy western civilization. He and his Illuminati friends are relentless in their quest for a new world order. Soros needs to be arrested and his wealth confiscated.

The far left lunatics possess the sound and fury of a category 5 hurricane. They gladly welcome America’s destruction because they foolishly want our Constitutional Republic replaced with their idea of a multi-cultural post-modern globalist, socialist, and politically correct utopia. Let’s hope President Trump can ride out their storm.

"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. President...do the right thing. Bring our troops home and put them to work building the wall and improving our infrastructure at home.

--Ben Garrison

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.
