"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.

McMaster's Master



We know McMaster and Petraeus met with Soros at the last Bilderberg conference. The question is, why? To drain the deep state we must start with those who are corrupted by globalists such as George Soros, who is sponsored by the Rothschilds.

This cartoon was commissioned by Mike Cernovich who is on top of the matter.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orEbVbO8KCs

--Ben Garrison

Additional: There is absolutely NOTHING anti-semitic about this cartoon no matter what the ADL says. The head of the ADL is pro-Obama and pro-George Soros, therefore he smears those who criticize them. The Rothschilds have amassed trillions of dollars over the centuries by war and inside machinations. I criticize them for their foul deeds, not their religion. Soros collaborated with the Nazis. The ADL does not get to decide or dictate what hate speech is. If they think they can, then they're also evil. 'nuff said.

LONG LIVE FREE SPEECH!

The Tumor That Is John McCain

THIS CARTOON CAUSED ME TO RECEIVE A 3-DAY BAN FROM FACEBOOK. 



It’s time for John McCain to retire. The 80 year-old Arizona senator was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Any normal man would spend his remaining time with his family. Not McCain. He remains determined to do maximum damage to President Trump and the USA. 

McCain is a deep state stooge. He’s an angry poodle on the leash of George Soros. He’s a globalist who is pro-massive immigration, pro-war and pro-trannies in the military. He’s not a war hero no matter how many times that lie is repeated by the fakestream media. Getting shot down and suffering wounds does not make him a hero. “Song Bird” McCain told the North Vietnamese secret info which caused more Americans to die in Vietnam. He wet started his jet on the USS Forrestal as a prank. It started a massive fire that led to the death of 134 sailors. Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of that tragedy. McCain had to be helicoptered off the ship because many sailors were calling for his scalp. As a senator, the war-mongering traitor John McCain has enriched himself by wetstarting on America.

McCain is malignant tumor. He has given America a massive headache for way too long.

--Ben Garrison

P.S. I don't care if he has brain cancer or not. McCain is a traitor who release classified information in order to damage President Trump. Prosecute him!

"The Hungry Bear"




The stock market bear is hungry. His fangs are out, but the stock market has a fang, too. FANG consists of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Goog—all of which have made fantastic gains during the current bull run. These stocks are bloated pigs, but the bear continues to be thwarted.

Since its tragic inception in 1913, the Federal Reserve has made sure we got plenty of war and bubbles, including more recently the Internet Bubble, the Housing Bubble and now we have the current bull market. Some are calling it ‘the greatest bubble ever.’ 

There are a variety of reasons why the market continues to relentlessly escalate to record levels. It has nothing to do with the presidents who like to take credit for such climbs. If insiders wanted the market crash, they could have done so when Trump was elected president. They didn’t want to shoot themselves in their collective foot and lose money, so there was no crash.

The continuing rise has to do with low interest rates by the Fed which has forced money into top companies. Betting on stocks is less risky than loaning it to small businesses or putting it into the already overpriced real estate market. Invest in Illinois bonds? Oh, well never mind. How about precious metals? No, that sector has been in a bear market since 2011. Paper covers rock and the central bankers can print up an unlimited amount of paper silver to keep physical silver contained. They can’t short Bitcoin, hence the amazing rise there.

The stock market seems to be the only game left in town, but who is playing that game? Certainly not young people. They are too burdened with college debt and are having a difficult time finding jobs that pay a decent wage. Real wages haven’t risen much in 30 years, but inflation and taxes have gone up. The cost of living has hurt the American Dream. Rent continues to skyrocket. Landlords are enjoying a bull market because young people can’t afford to buy an over-priced home, even with low rates. Not many young people can't pony up $1,000 to buy one solitary share of Amazon. Also, Baby Boomers are cashing out of the market and retiring. The middle class is going away as the rich get stupendously richer while most of the country gets poorer. 

So who is doing all the buying? Insiders, that’s who. They already own most of the stocks and they know that driving up their investments benefits them very well. Global corporations, many of which pay no taxes at all, buy back their own stocks, thus benefitting the insiders. The central bankers do the same. The richest 10 percent in America own 80 percent of market wealth.

Before you accuse me of inciting class warfare, let me remind you that a lot of that wealth at the top is compounding not because of capitalism, but rather crony capitalism. Mega corporations and their lobbyists control Congress and they make sure conditions are kept in place that allow them to make successful inside bests in the mega casino that they own. President Clinton ended Glass-Steagall Act, which allowed the big banks to gamble, and what happened in 2008 showed us who really runs the show. The central bankers, represented by Hank Paulson, twisted the arm of Congress in order to rake in trillions in bailout money as well as gigantic bonuses. Quantitative easing and free money helped the bankers and Wall Street. Not Main Street. 

When will the bull market collapse? Some say this year, but we’ve heard that every year since the last drop. The doom and gloomers continue to get it wrong. People such as Martin Armstrong, who is predicting the market will double again from here, continue to get it right. The technicals show weaker pullbacks and smaller gains on lower volume. The signs point to a blowoff top and that is attracting a lot of short interest, but many traders have already shorted the market and individual stocks again and again, only to get burned again and again. The bear remains very hungry.

--Ben Garrison

P.S. I had a really bad typo--typed 2013 for the start of the Fed. It's 1913. I fixed it. My apologies. I don't have an editor and my editing skills aren't all that great.

"Obamacare Monster"



"The Republican plan doesn’t fix the death spiral of Obamacare, it simply subsidizes it.

--Rand Paul

Senator Paul knows government loves taxes and bureaucracy and it will always be reluctant to vote away such power and control. So instead of repealing the disaster that is Obamacare altogether, Republicans are tinkering with a replacement. This is the wrong approach.

The Obamacare monster doesn’t need to be replaced. It needs to be repealed. Eliminate it altogether. Get government out of the health care business. Stop subsidizing insurance companies with taxpayer money. Instead, make insurance companies compete on an open, free market. That’s what capitalism is all about. If we removed big government and insurance company interference from health care, real capitalism could drive medical costs down considerably.

Made in America:



‘All hat and no cattle’ is an old expression often applied to someone who is full of hot air. Such a person may loudly brag (big hat), but lacks accomplishments (cattle) to back up the braggadocio. In the case of president Trump, he was given a gift of a custom-made cowboy hat called “El Presidente.” The hat fits and he’s wearing it because he has already accomplished a great deal only six months into his administration. A pipeline deal, appointing a Supreme Court justice, bringing jobs back to America and better trade deals starting with the cancelation of TPP. He pulled out of the Paris Accord because it wasn’t in America’s best interest. He has humiliated the Deep State fake news media—particularly CNN. He’s an ‘America First’ president, and that’s refreshing. 

More progress needs to be made. Plans for the wall are underway, but we also need to end Obama care. Not modify it or replace it, but rather get rid of government interference in health care altogether. Let people again choose (or not choose) to buy their own insurance. Returning health care to the free market and private sector is the only way to open up competition and drive down prices. 

A lot of work remains when it comes to draining the swamp. The Deep State needs to be uprooted. The CIA has way too much power. Break them up. Eliminate the NSA. Remove the pedophiles and satanists from power. Audit and end the Federal Reserve. End the income tax and IRS tyranny.

Oh—and don’t forget Hillary. LOCK HER UP!

G-20 Memories: The Firm Handshake



To me, the most memorable moment of the G-20 Summit was the handshake between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. There’s no reason for Russia and United States to be engaged in a new cold war. Or a hot war arranged by globalists and central bankers. President Trump showed that he’s quite capable of marshaling a foreign policy and protecting America’s interests. He made it clear that he placed America first by wearing an American flag pin on his lapel, rather than the G-20 pin. You can bet the constantly bowing Obama would have worn the latter pin.

German Chancellor Merkel (Hillary’s favorite world leader) represented the globalist interests, which include endless immigration, socialism, and ‘climate change,’ which is being used to help bring about worldwide communism. Both Putin and Trump are resisting such immigration and global elite control as well as the climate change malarky. This makes them both ‘bad guys’ in the eyes of the fake news legacy media. A left wing reporter from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation smeared President Trump by stating he had ‘no capacity to lead the free world.’ Wrong. He’s just not going along with the globalist agenda--and that’s refreshing. Trump rejects bad deals and presidents from the past few decades have made way too many of them.

Meanwhile, German leftist antifa types rioted in the streets during the summit. What did they want? Completely open borders and free stuff, of course. Don’t agree with them? If you were on the streets there and disagreed, you could have expected assault and battery to come your way. There wouldn’t have been much help from the Polizei, either. This kind of violence is gaining traction here in America, too. Young people are getting socialism drummed into their brains at colleges everywhere. They’re encouraged by professors, the mainstream media, and by extreme political correctness to engage in violent behavior. They don’t want debate. They don’t want to agree to disagree with a handshake. They want socialism by means of force, even though the lessons of history have repeatedly proven that state sponsored ‘free stuff’ and forced equality always leads to poverty, suffering and mass murder.

"Hitting a Hornets' Nest"



CNN has been exposed. We know they are liars and purveyors of fake news. They continue to lose viewers and credibility and now they’ve gone over the top with their attempt to suppress free speech. They targeted a young man and forced him to promise not to produce any more animated videos such as the wrestling comedy that showed them getting body slammed by President Trump. They made him apologize—or else they would expose his identity, a tactic known as ‘doxxing.’ Still, their actions weren’t merely a threat to only one individual, but a warning to all the trolls and ‘deplorables’ using free speech on the Internet. To those of us who have been targeted by trolls, we know CNN’s efforts are a fool’s errand, but apparently CNN has yet to learn that lesson. They will get that lesson now—good and hard.

By attempting to blackmail a private citizen who is not a public figure, CNN has revealed that they’re willing to pour some of their vast resources toward tracking down voices they consider offensive. They want to generate fear to pare back free speech on the Internet and perhaps hasten the return of their TV sheep back to the fold. After all, independent journalists speaking the truth freely on the Web are a thorn in CNN’s side. The mainstream media have long been the penultimate source for news, but now they are losing viewers, readers and credibility. They enjoyed the power that comes with controlling the dials of reality and the narrative. They were the filter used by the global elite Illuminati to sort and sift the news in their favor. Their news monopoly days are now gone, but apparently CNN failed to get the message. That message will be delivered to them now—good and hard.

CNN’s vile action was equivalent to hitting a hornets’ nest with a baseball bat. Their bashing and blackmailing activated a great many who loudly support our right to free speech, which includes anonymous free speech. The desperate attempt to shut down free speech on the Internet is another signal of CNN’s decline. The corporate-owned legacy media are dying. O death, where is thy sting? Well, they’re now getting stung—good and hard.

"Ship of Fools"




The Democratic Party is in decline. They have no real leaders on the horizon and those running the show are hopelessly corrupt. The Clintons are criminals. Nancy Pelosi is losing her mind. Joe Biden is a laughable pervert. Podesta practices Satanism. Bernie Sanders isn’t a ‘progressive.’ Stop calling him that. He’s nothing more than a communist who pocketed donations from the common man. Bernie knew he had no chance against the DNC machine. Despite the rigging and abuse he faced, he endorsed his abuser. Perez, the new DNC chairman is a ‘nut job.’ Maxine Waters is a raving lunatic. The sycophant mainstream media supporting the Democrats continue to double down on the ‘Russia’ narrative nonsense even though it has been proven over and over to be fake news. Some of them have now been caught admitting that. Hollywood and their ilk can do little to regain relevance other than to call for resistance against President Trump. Some even call for assassination outright.

The Democrats have become defacto Socialists who want open borders and globalism. The LGBQT+ crowd keeps adding on letters and that’s all about shutting down free speech and destroying the family—and even reality. Their behavior is exactly what the communist globalists want. Call someone who considers themselves ‘intersexual’ a male or female? Then you’re a hater or a whatever-phobe and some will demand that you pay a large fine or be locked up because feelings were hurt.

The Neo Cons in the Republican Party are on the same page as the Democrats. Until Trump came along, there was really only one giant globalist party running the show, but now they’re on the rocks, thanks to Wikileaks and truth tellers on the Internet.

How can the rudderless Democrats right their ship? For one thing, they can take down the dirty sail that is Obama. He did his best to destroy America. Start repudiating the fools who spout lies and nonsense. Throw the Clintons overboard or even better—lock them up. But mostly, they need to do what Trump is doing: Put America first. Don’t hold your breath on that ever happening.

"Drowning In Debt"



Illinois is in a bad state. Oh, it’s not a bad state per se—it is, after all "The Land of Lincoln.” There are plenty of good people there—especially in the rural areas. It’s not their fault that they’re burdened with the city of Chicago. It’s a place long-known for its corruption and profligate spending. It has now reached an end game and there’s not enough money to keep the farce going. Eventually, other people’s money runs out. Now they can’t cover city operating costs if they want to cover the massive pension obligations--and they must do the latter because it’s mandated by their state constitution.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel is a colossal failure. His solution to the runaway murder rate in his city? He calls for even more gun control. His solution to the fiscal crisis is to go deeper in debt. To help salvage his damaged reputation, the mayor went into virtue signaling mode and denounced President Trump over ‘climate change.’ Instead of facing the gigantic problems in his city, he trumpets the climate change farce. Hey Rahm—you can’t even save Chicago. Forget about saving the ‘planet.’ Rahm vowed his sanctuary city will adopt the Paris Climate Change Accord regardless. Chicago is also a ‘sanctuary city,’ where illegal immigrants are shielded and supported—federal law be damned.

High taxes, statist micromanagement, and chronic overspending may help liberal politicians look good over the short term, but it destroys the wealth of the people over the long term. Socialism or progressivism or whatever else they want to call it these days never works well over the long term. We recently saw it fail in Venezuela and then Puerto Rico. Chicago will fail next and it will take Illinois down with it.

"Alex Jones Plays Megyn Like a Violin"




We’re beginning to see more clashes between the dinosaur media and Internet-based journalists. Submitted for your viewing pleasure is a cartoon that sums up the interview Megyn Kelly conducted with Alex Jones.

Megyn left Fox for NBC and now she makes around $15 million per year, but Alex didn’t have stars in his eyes. He took her to school and played her like a violin. He knew she was out to play the ‘Gotcha!’ game. Her goal was to discredit Alex and by extension President Trump, who granted InfoWars press credentials. 

Megyn promised to go easy on Alex to get him to agree to the interview, but she went into vicious attack dog mode as soon as it commenced. She grilled him on Sandy Hook in particular and then proceeded to selectively edit Alex’s comments to cast him in a bad light. Some advertisers are threatening to pull their ads from the show because they find Alex offensive. Alex wants NBC to cancel the segment because it turned into the hit job he expected. What Megyn didn’t know is Alex recorded their pre-interview session and he has proof of her disingenuousness. 

NBC doesn't want to cave in to Alex, so they may be forced to air the interview as a face-saving measure. That will upset their advertisers and give Alex more publicity. If they cancel the segment, NBC and Megyn will be admitting defeat. Either way, it’s a win-win situation for Alex because the mainstream media will be further discredited.

I happen to catch Glenn Beck interviewing the big leprechaun, Bill O’Reilly, over the matter. O’Reilly pompously stated Megyn should not given Alex Jones 'a forum.' He also claimed he didn’t know who Alex was and didn’t even know he had a radio show. Yeah. Sure, Bill. What O’Reilly showed me was that the MSM will do or say anything to discredit alternative media. The corporate MSM may have deep pockets, but they're continuing to lose credibility, viewers and readers. It’s good to see them swinging wildly—and missing. A citizen journalist working for little or no money on the Internet often has far more credibility than the overpaid deep state propaganda blowhards on TV.

"Lighting The Fuse"



For some reason, many of those on the left think it’s perfectly A-OK to call for the death of our president. Some call for it directly, others indirectly. It may come in the form of ‘performance art’ where Trump becomes Julius Caesar and is stabbed to death. Kathy Griffin joked about him being decapitated, while holding up a facsimile of his severed head. In one of his videos, Snoop Dogg was shown shooting at President Trump. Madonna wanted to blow up the White House. 

Others such as Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Michael Moore are calling for some sort of ominous ‘resistance’ to Trump. Former Vice Presidential Candidate Tim Kaine (whose son is a member of the Antifa) actually called for "fighting in the streets." Loretta Lynch called for “blood in the streets.” The mainstream media was complicit in conveying anti-Trump violence all along. Remember when they suggested he may not make it to his own inauguration? Rachel Maddow compared Trump to Hitler. It’s OK to kill Hitler, right? Once you strip someone of their humanity by smearing them as ‘Hitler’ or a ‘racist,’ then it’s fine to commit acts of violence on them. That’s what they did during the Spanish Inquisition. They labeled people ‘heretics’ and then tortured them. It’s a method starting to be used by the Antifa today. Anyone with whom they disagree with is automatically labeled a ‘fascist,’ and it’s fine to use violence against fascists. Many in the mainstream media have made menacing comments about Trump. The Secret Service must have a hard time keeping up with it all. I had trouble keeping up with all of it in my cartoon.

The far left currently hides under cloaks labeled ‘socialist’ or ‘progressive,’ but they’re really nothing but Marxists. You know, those people who believe in Marxism. The same old tired Marxism that has been repeatedly discredited. It was recently soundly discredited again in Venezuela. This is the same Marxism that caused the murder of many millions in the 20th Century. The man who opened fire on Republicans at the baseball field was for all intents and purposes, a Marxist. He was also a bad shot. Those on the left hate guns and many of them favor gun confiscation. Most probably know nothing about handling guns. This may prove to be a misfortune for them if they spark another civil war. They may find that many on the right will shoot back—and they won’t miss because most are well-trained in the use of firearms. Many are veterans who are used to shooting at people. Take this as a warning, you far-left loons who are trying to provoke a civil war. That war won’t end well for you. Maybe you should try peaceful dialogue instead. That would be a welcome change.

—Ben Garrison

Additional: I worked on the cartoon very late last night and erroneously had Madonna saying "Burn it down" when she said "Blow it up!" She was referring to the White House. The cartoon has been updated.

"My 20,000 Pt. Dow Life"



The Dow was up nearly another 100 points today after yesterday’s loss. That seems to be the pattern. Every pull back is now seen as a buying opportunity. We are told the economy must be doing great because the market keeps going up, up UP! I suppose it’s a matter of perspective. It’s not so great for over 50 percent of Americans who own no stocks whatsoever. Most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck with little or no savings. They’re struggling to pay rent and the bills. They're not going to be buying AMZN at $1,000 per share. Jobless young people who are steeped in college debt and living with their parents can’t afford to buy stocks, either. Baby boomers are cashing out stocks to pay for their retirement. So what exactly is fueling the perpetual rise in stocks? The central bankers and global corporations themselves. President Trump and Obama have nothing to do with it. It’s an insiders’ game. 

The top one percent owns nearly 40 percent of stocks. The top 20 percent owns 92 percent. In other words, the fabulously rich continue to get stupendously richer by pumping up their own stocks while the average working person hasn’t seen a real wage increase in over 30 years. Yes, I know I’m at risk of being called a socialist by pointing this out. Some may say I’m trying to foment class warfare, but all I’m doing is stating facts. We already have a quasi-socialist system. The government steals our money and redistributes it as they see fit. Citizens were ordered to buy ObamaCare whether they liked it or not.

We also have a corporate fascist system. While many Americans are unable to pass ‘GO,’ the Federal Reserve routinely prints and doles out free money to its central banker owners. They in turn sock it into the stock market in the form of quantitative easing, ‘twists’ or whatever they want to call it. They own the Monopoly® board and make us pay each time we land on their squares. They also use their easy money to keep gold and silver suppressed. A classic case of ‘paper covers rock.’ Silver should have done what Bitcoin has done—gone up exponentially. The bankers apparently can’t rig or short Bitcoin. 

The big shots who own the game have run out of ideas about where their free money can be parked. Loan it out to the poor or entrepreneurs? Oh no, can’t do that…too much risk! Bonds? No way with these lower rates. The money addicts want the big returns that stocks can provide and so that’s where the money goes. Martin Armstrong even thinks the Dow can hit 40,000. Why not? It benefits those at the very top—you know, those who already own and control most anything anyway. More money for Bezos, Gates, Warren Buffett and the big bankers—great, huh? Those running the show through the CFR and at Bilderberg will continue to have ever-more money and influence while the little guy will lose more freedom, money and jobs. A rising market is great for the top of the pyramid, and terrible for the rest of us.

These are the things I think about as the rigged Dow continues to get force fed. A fat market living at all-time highs is NOT a good thing for the average citizen who picks up the tab, and if the market ever does explode, it will be the average citizen who will suffer the most. You see, it’s not really ‘free money.’ It’s debt currency and it produces a kind of privileged royalty at the top and debt slaves underneath them. It’s the sort of situation that sparks a revolution.

"The Leak Fixer"



What a pathetic performance by Comey. How in the hell did such a man become an FBI director? Oh, now I remember. He was a clerk for the Deep State all along. His job was to protect the swamp. He was ordered to let Hillary off the hook.

Comey began by helping the Clintons escape Whitewater charges when he was a deputy counsel for a special Senate committee that was investigating the crime. Er, ‘the matter,’ as Comey probably saw it. Comey then went to Lockheed Martin, where he amassed a $6 million fortune before he left in 2010. That’s quite a reward.

He was appointed FBI director by Obama in 2013. Barry must have known that Comey was already compromised and would do the globalists' bidding. He was right. He let the arch criminal Hillary off the hook again by claiming she had no ‘intent,’ even though she lied about her email and the leaking of classified information from her illegal server. She obstructed justice by destroying evidence. Instead of going after Hillary, he granted her operatives immunity in the investigation, er, ’the matter.'

The hearings revealed Comey to be a weak, lying, wormy mound of quivering jelly. His investigation against Trump for supposedly colluding with Russia? It was all based on lies, hearsay and fake news. Comey admitted there was no evidence, yet he continued to spend taxpayer money on pursuing a case. He said he operated by a ‘gut feeling’ with Trump. In other words, the Deep State ordered him to drum up an investigation based on fake leaks and anonymous sources. Comey himself admitted to leaking information. He also admitted “The New York Times” was publishing fake news. Instead of investigating a real news story such as the murder of Seth Rich by the Deep State, the legacy media were busy concocting lies about Trump and Russia. On orders from the Deep State, of course.

President Trump’s decision to fire Comey was spot on. The first step in draining a swamp is to stop the toxic leaking, lies and corruption that help create one in the first place. The FBI, CIA and NSA should all be answerable to the president, and he should be able to fire anyone in those agencies. We The People should have ultimate control over such bureaus through the elected president. Otherwise, said agencies can go rogue while hiding under 'national security’ secrecy every time. That’s not right. We The People demand accountability. Otherwise the agencies can aid and abet criminals. You know, people such as Comey who let their shadow government comrades off the hook every time. It’s too bad Trump doesn’t fire the entire NSA outright for illegally spying on the American people, but firing Comey is a good first step.

Trump has been exonerated. Comey, the fake news mainstream media, and the Deep State have been humiliated. The swamp has just been drained slightly, thus opening up a path to bring Hillary to justice. Lock her up!

Trump 1, The Deep State 0

—Ben Garrison

Additional: People have asked why I draw President Trump in an athletic and robust manner. There are three reasons:


1. I draw him as he is inside--strong.
2. It helps to balance out how over the top disgusting the liberal cartoonists always portray him.

3. It makes those on the left angry.

"A Change in The Weather"




I applaud President Trump for withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord. It sends a clear message to doubters that he is indeed not in the pocket of the Illuminati like all of the presidents since Kennedy have been. As to be expected, the outcry was immediate and incredulous. He fielded criticism from Al Gore, the Pope, Lloyd Blankfein, Merkel and many others. Leonardo DiCaprio said, “Our planet was threatened by Trump’s careless decision.” Notice how he doesn’t use the word ‘Earth.’ Instead we're just another planet out there—such as Mars—and its ready to have our atmosphere ripped away. Hey Leo, stick to acting and sucking in millions of bucks so you can leave huge carbon footprints with your private jets. Your pompous fear-mongering and hyperbole aren't convincing.

The Paris Agreement would have put a big burden on the US. “This agreement is less about climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States,” said the president. It would have sent more jobs overseas, while hurting our economy. Shutting down greenhouse gasses while allowing them in China was a bad deal for our country. President Trump hates bad deals. He stands for our country first and foremost. He’s a patriot and nationalist, and that’s refreshing. Patriotism used to be equated with nationalism, but the globalist professors and the far left legacy media have trained people into thinking nationalism is evil. They equate nationalism as ‘nativism’ and hate. The left went so far as to call anyone who wanted to protect our borders as being ‘Nazis.’ This was part of their plan—change the language and brainwash people into supporting their objectives.

George Soros, who has spent what has been called a "staggering amount of money" to influence (hack) our elections in favor of his selections, also spent $30 million on Al Gore’s global warming programs, which aim to lobby carbon taxes to further impoverish and control U.S. citizens. It’s about more money going to the central bankers and global business interests at top of the pyramid. It’s about those at the very top conditioning minds so that they’ll readily accept global ‘governance,’ which means a one-world collectivist dictatorship run by slave masters. The end game for them is making everyone poor and dependent on government. This also means digital currency, mandatory vaccines and the further erosion of liberty. Eventually it means a culling of humanity.

If Obama, Soros, Merkel, the Rothschilds, Trudeau, Marcon are excited about the agreement, then we know from that alone that it must be rejected. We know scientists can cherry pick and distort data to promote the agenda as long as they are well-plied with Illuminati money. We know that Kissinger considers climate change to be the main pillar in erecting the New World Order. Trump just put a crack in that pillar. 

The atheist Bill Maher sounds like fire and brimstone preacher when it comes to climate change. He displays a religious fervor when it comes to the topic. Those opposing his view are treated with contempt and ridicule. This method is used by the globalists to quell opposing opinions on the topic. Anyone questioning it gets called names. Scientists who question it lose their jobs and reputations.

Yes, the climate changes, but if the globalists really cared about ‘the planet,’ they’d be doing something about the most egregious danger out there today: Fukushima, which continues to destroy an entire ocean. We hear nothing about that from the illuminati, do we? Instead, Al Gore bangs on his desk in his seashore mansion and demands a $15 trillion carbon tax so he and his carbon control companies can get filthy rich.

The climate change narrative is being run by con artists such as Gore. They spew out the best distorted data money can buy. It’s bunk. There’s no reason we can’t have clean-burning coal and natural gas. Both are in copious supply. There’s no reason we can’t have industry and well-paying jobs returning to America. But as George Carlin once said, ‘The real owners don’t want that."

"The Queen of Excuses"



Hillary Clinton is continuing her whine tour. She usually prefaces her complaints by first saying she takes full responsibility, but then she launches into her blame game—and she blames everyone but herself. She outspent Trump by more than a two to one margin, but Trump out-campaigned her and made far more appearances to his packed venues. Hillary didn’t bother much because she thought it was in the bag all along. After all, that’s what her skewed polls told her. She once said (when she thought she had a huge lead) she never even thought of Trump anymore. The Clintons always used their power and crooked games to rig elections in their favor. Why would she expect things to be any different? All Clinton thought she had to do was talk about ‘glass ceilings’ while the globalist deep state-owned mainstream media praised her as being the most qualified candidate in history. CNN constantly talked about the ‘historic’ Clinton and expected the brainwashed masses to vote for her no matter what. 

Yet the MSM had lost its persuasive power. The Internet was the instrument that swayed minds and Hillary was so out of touch that she simply couldn’t understand that. She instead insulted pro-Trump Americans as ‘deplorables.’

So Hillary lost despite her advantages. She flew into a drunken rage and didn’t even bother to address the crowd who had been waiting for her patiently and for many hours. She sent the satanic pedophile Podesta to tell her supporters to go home. She lacked the class and accountability to tell them herself.

Instead of going away and accepting her defeat gracefully, she instead concocted the ‘Russia’ story while claiming she was going to lead the opposition, which wanted to impeach Trump. What she’s doing is quasi-treasonous. 

It’s time for Hillary to go away for good, but her ego and lust for power and control simply will not allow her to do that. Instead she will probably run again in 2020. If she does, she will likely face an even worse defeat. Young voters will see her for what she is—and old, corrupt hag who is firmly in the pocket of the central banker global elite establishment. The Deep State will probably deep six her since they know this, but that remains to be seen. 

Go away, crooked Hillary!

Kathy Griffin's Shame:



Kathy Griffin lost her head and went too far. Maybe it was due to the waning popularity the liberal comedienne had been enduring. It may have helped summon the idea for her attention-getting beheading stunt. She got that attention, but her ‘joke’ was spectacularly unfunny. 

It has become too commonplace on the left to threaten violence against those with whom they disagree when they should be offering debate. This is especially typical of the ‘Antifa’ mentality. They hurl bike locks first and ask no questions later. If the left continues to promote and encouraging violence, they may get it. We all know the nation is more divided than ever. Despite her apology, Kathy Griffin helped widen that divide.

Body Slamming



Last week Greg Gianforte allegedly ‘body slammed’ an overly obtrusive reporter from ‘The Guardian.’ Some say the reporter’s aggressive behavior was designed to provoke such an altercation in order to ruin Gianforte’s chances of getting elected to Montana’s lone congressional seat. Most likely, it had the opposite effect. The Democrats and their corporate media seem a little desperate these days. Not only are their fake media getting body slammed and revealed for what they are (liars), but the DNC itself has been exposed for rigging primaries, lying about election hacking by Russia, and even having dissenters murdered. 

Trump’s European tour also showed that he was an alpha male. His handshake crushed Macron’s beta male hand. He pushed his way to the front of the crowd. He’s not about to let himself or America take a back seat. He didn’t bow to foreign leaders and apologize profusely like Obama did. He didn’t cave into the globalist and phony ‘climate change’ narrative. Merkel was furious as if she had also been body slammed. That’s good—when they’re hurting, it’s always a good sign. We don’t need their ‘global governance.' Carbon taxes will make people such as Al Gore richer and more powerful as we fund our own slavery and impoverishment. No thank you.

Keep on body slammin’ them, President Trump.

"Lady Justice Says, "LOCK HER UP!"



WikiLeaks revealed Hillary’s loyalty and devotion to the central bankers. In her usual perfunctory and well-planned manner, she spouted empty platitudes at voters and expected to win automatically. Hillary and Bill engaged in ‘pay for play’ graft as a matter of course. They grew stupendously wealthy. She operated an illegal server and destroyed evidence. The Clintons are monsters who have left a long trail of bodies to obtain and preserve their power. They must consider Americans to be easy marks. Citizens are suckers to them.

Hillary is a money-grubbing, power-mad grifter. She’s a vile criminal globalist and a central banker toady. Her association with Podesta suggests she has also dabbled with Satanism.

After she lost the election, Hillary and her operatives invented the Russian narrative to distract from her criminality and failed candidacy. Apparently the deep state will amp up their Russian lie as a means to impeach President Trump. That’s why the media are releasing stories not based on facts and evidence, but on mysterious unnamed sources and hearsay. The big corporate media have plenty of money, but they’re rapidly losing credibility and can no longer easily brainwash Americans, who are deserting them in droves. More and more citizens are following truth tellers and real investigative journalists on the Internet. The legacy media have been exposed as liars and purveyors of fake news. Despite their vast monetary resources, they’re losing their power and sway over American minds. Good.

Regardless, Hillary never goes away and she always seems to elude justice despite abundant evidence against her. Trump needs to make good on his campaign promise: “Lock her up!”

"I SCREAM!"



Last week we were dished out a story about Trump getting two scoops of ice cream while others only got one. Maxine Waters pounced on the incident as another chance to scream for President Trump’s impeachment. This subject is a rocky road filled with nuts and puns, so I drew this cartoon as a cherry on top.

"You're Fired!"



James Comey has been fired by President Trump. It’s a good first step toward draining the swamp. If Trump holds to form, more people will be fired. Trump has never tolerated incompetence.

Comey refused to prosecute crooked Hillary Clinton because he said Hillary had no ‘intent’ to commit crimes. Comey had no right to decide Clinton’s guilt or innocence. That should have been left to the courts. The evidence against Hillary was overwhelming, and she still needs to be locked up. Intent has no bearing on case.

Comey also claimed he was looking into Trump’s ‘Russian’ connections, which were non-existent. Hillary invented the Russian story to deflect from her criminal activity while also providing her a convenient way to blame ‘Russian hackers’ on her defeat. The corrupt mainstream media breathlessly spread this fake news. Hillary had more to do with Moscow than Trump ever did. Bill Clinton raked in $500,000 for a speech there. Shortly thereafter Hillary allowed a Russian company to gain control of a large percentage of US uranium reserves. Classic pay for play. But Comey didn’t investigate that, which was a real scandal—oh no. Comey allowed the FBI to become a political tool for his deep state masters.

Comey was also a bumbler. He repeatedly failed to pursue chances to end incidences of Islamic terrorism. He granted Hillary’s aides immunity unnecessarily and allowed evidence to be destroyed. He didn’t investigate Obama's scandals. He was, after all, appointed by Obama.

Let’s hope Trump continues to drain the swamp. Firing Comey is a good first step.

"Matt's Fury"

Matt Furie, you're doing it wrong. I was going to write a small essay to explain why your attempt to kill off Pepé the Frog in your comic strip simply won't work--and in fact, it will probably make the trolling against you worse. But then I saw Styxhexenhammer666's video and he explains it far better than I ever could:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHshb1QMOvY



Hillary Clinton pronounced Pepé to be a scary 'racist' symbol in order to smear Trump supporters during last year's presidential race. It didn't work and Pepé is not a symbol of the 'alt right' simply because she said so. He's a vehicle used to express many emotions and political beliefs, but Hillary pompously appointed herself as the Commissar of Hate Speech and tried to kill off Pepé. She failed.

Pepé is a meme that can't be eliminated with an official declaration or wave of a hand from some 'authority.' He's part of the public domain of free speech. Praise Kek.

'Macron, the Door Mat'



We at GrrrGraphics convey our best wishes to Marine Le Pen in the French election. The so-called ‘centrist’ Macron represents the globalist bankers and submission to Islam. LePen represents traditional France. We need more nationalists such as Le Pen, Geert Wilders, and Nigel Farage in Europe to help stem the onrushing Islamic tide as well as end the tyranny that is the European Union. We need politicians who aren’t cowed by political correctness.

Americans elected a populist president to drain the swamp and make America great again. France can do something similar by electing Le Pen. Make Great Britain great again. Make France great again. Protect Europe against the Islamic invasion and start standing up for western civilization again.

Presidential Grooming



Hillary Clinton stated “I take absolute responsibility” for her election loss. She promptly went on to blame James Comey, Russian ‘WikiLeak’ hackers and misogyny. Hillary expected to win automatically. After all, she outspent Trump two to one. Trump however, out-campaigned her by the same ratio. Trump appeared robust and tireless while Hillary was apparently out sick, coasting or resting. The rust belt wanted jobs, not a repeat of the empty hope and change promises previously delivered by Obama. They were ready for real change. Hillary was the status quo candidate of the central bankers. So was Obama. Trump stood out as a populist outsider with a more compelling vision of America—and he won.

WikiLeaks exposed Hillary as an operative working for the banking elite, the CFR and the deep state Illuminati. She lacked charisma, health, ethics and a convincing back story. Instead, she relied on slogans and platitudes that rang hollow. It’s time for the Clintons to go away for good, but they have owned and corrupted the Democratic party for so long that they have now become the Democrat party. Without them, who else is there? Elizabeth Warren? That could possibly explain why the Clintons, who grew fantastically rich through their political graft are now promoting their daughter. Chelsea has recently received a great many positive mentions and news stories from the bought-out mainstream media. Hillary is grooming her for office. First, the Clintons will pay for a congressional seat even though Chelsea is not qualified. Then, after a term or two, she’ll probably run for a short stint in the Senate. After that, the presidency.

Hillary ran a dog of a campaign. No amount of grooming and money will help her daughter succeed where her mother failed. America has had enough of the Clinton and Bush dynasties.

Pandora's Needle:



This cartoon is based on the ancient Greek legend of Pandora. She opened the box (actually it was a large jar) out of innocent curiosity and hope. Instead of hope, evil was released and it had long-lasting effect. That about sums up the current situation with Big Pharma with their endless vaccinations and concoctions designed to make them ever-more money.

I’m not anti-science and vaccinations have been a great benefit to mankind. (Yeah, I know that last word is not PC—too bad). Inoculations have prevented a lot of death and suffering. Like anything, though, it can be and has been abused. Babies are now treated as pin cushions. They receive up to nearly a dozen vaccinations well before their own immune systems can develop. Autism has gone up astronomically as a result. A search engine query produced this:

If you follow the CDC's recommended vaccination schedule, your child will receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines by the time he/she is 6 years of age. And by the age of 18, the CDC recommends that children should have gotten 69 doses of 16 vaccines.

Big Pharma employs lobbyists and operatives to make sure doctors push new drugs in return for kickbacks. Recently South Korea fine Novartis $50 million for such practices. (Novartis denies that it's their policy). It boils down to money. Pushing drugs is profitable for big Pharma. They are tied in with the globalists. Therefore, natural cures are suppressed. Now they want to ‘control and regulate’ supplements.

It’s all about money and science can be greedy. In Japan, we saw what happens when greed and science combine. We got the Fukushima nuclear facility—stupidly built on a tsunami-prone coast and on an earthquake zone. Spent fuel rod pools were constructed atop reactors to save time and money. Dangerous short cuts were taken because it increased profit margins.

We see the same greed with ‘climate change.’ Scientists are told to provide data to prove global warming, and they are well-plied with globalist money to do it. The greedy huckster Al Gore recently stated he wanted $15 trillion to stop global warming. Scientists who question the climate change narrative and paid data lose their jobs and reputations. Science is not immune to corruption and human frailty. They can be bought out as easily as politicians. 

All authority needs to be questioned. It includes questioning scientific and medical authorities. Your child’s life may depend on it.

—Ben Garrison

UPDATE: I'm catching some flak from this cartoon. Consider this: Do we REALLY want to be subjected to mandatory vaccinations? Dr. Benjamin Rush warned us about government forcing medicinal practices. He even thought we needed constitutional protection against it.

"Today, the American people are challenged, as they have never been before, to confront the expansion of government authority over our bodies and the bodies of our children, specifically the exercise of police power to take us into custody and isolate us without our consent whenever public health officials believe we are sick or could become sick. At stake is the preservation of human rights and cultural values that have been part of America since the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights defined civil liberties two centuries ago."

Antifa Fascists:



The ‘Antifa’ dress in black, wear masks and resort to physical violence. They use force to silence those with whom they disagree. They consider anyone to the right of Lenin to be ‘Nazis,’ while they engage in brown shirted, Hitler-like tactics themselves. They are most likely funded by the globalist George Soros. His job is to stir up strife and conflict. He enjoys keeping populaces distracted by means of hate and violence while he and his ilk advance their plans for a one-world government.

Once a haven for free speech, Berkeley has now become a giant safe space where uniform thinking is encouraged. After all, free speech is extremely dangerous. Why? Because it might hurt someone’s feelings! Feelings are now more important than facts and logic on too many college campuses. The Berkeley faculty and campus police seem to favor the Antifa. Instead of headlong debate, heads are getting hit with bike locks —and the Antifa culprits get away with it.

These spoiled brats apparently think they’re leading a cultural Marxist revolution. They had better not escalate the situation further. If there is gun play, a great many conservatives will fight back. I hope that doesn’t happen. We already have a cold war of sorts between the blue and red states. We don’t need an escalation into a hot war.

It’s time for far-left colleges to practice what they’re preaching. Namely, they need to start being more ‘inclusive' and embrace ‘diversity.' This means including even (gasp!) white, male conservatives. Welcome all voices to the debate table, not only those who recite the usual politically correct narrative by rote. Give others who aren’t socialists a chance to be heard. Don’t be afraid to engage in rational discourse. It might end up challenging and expanding minds. Isn’t that what college is for?

Le Pen Kicks Butt:



The so-called ‘centrist’ French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron doesn’t want to offend Muslims. He claimed terrorism would be a part of the daily lives of the French people for years to come. Just like croissants and good bordeaux. He may as well wave a surrender flag and then get down on a Islamic prayer rug.

Marine LePen wants to stop importing Islam and the terrorism that always accompanies it. She is the voice of sanity in a country gone mad with political correctness. Even the pope made the ridiculous claim that ‘migrant’ holding centers are ‘Nazi concentration camps’ for Muslims. Apparently the Pope wants to help hasten the demise of his own Christianity. Europe seems to be ready to hand over their countries to Islam without a fight. Sharia law is at odds with western civilization and Muslims will use violence to implement it. The Quran tells them to do this.

Socialists continue to welcome and embrace Islam because they consider it their best means to destroy Christianity--thereby making it easier to usher in their communism. That's why Obama and Merkel have eagerly flooded western civilization with Islam. Soros is a big player in this scheme, too. What they really want is the erosion of the historically strong Christian foundation in western countries. 

Marine Le Pen wants to end such insanity. She’s always labeled ‘far right’ by the mainstream media. There’s no longer such a thing as ‘right’ or ‘conservative.’ It’s always ‘far right.' It’s just one of the pejorative terms used to impugn those who care about preserving the culture of one’s country. They are called ‘nativists’ or the ubiquitous terms “racist” and “Nazi.” 

I don’t want to see France become a caliphate. I admire Marine Le Pen for making a stand against the Islamic invasion. I wish her the best of luck in the election.

—Ben Garrison

ADDITIONAL:

Here's my response to a man in England who complained that my previous Le Pen cartoon was 'inaccurate' :

Most cartoons are exaggerations and mine was no exception. Such hyperbole helps get a point across--and that point is Le Pen does not want to see her country continually cave in to Islam. Charles Martel was able to stem the tide of Islam into Europe well over a thousand years ago, but the war between Christians and Muslims has never ended. Now Islam is deeply entrenched into Europe not by means of warfare, but by means of sympathy and political correctness. They're taking advantage of the Kafir's willingness to surrender without a fight. After all, we're all the same, right? No, we're not. I don't want to see terrorism, revenge killings, female genital mutilation, the lack of pork and alcohol, forced subjugation, on and on. We have different cultures altogether.

Like Le Pen, I believe western civilization is worth preserving. I don't want to see it replaced by a barbaric, violent medieval religion and Sharia Law. Islam is a religion of conquest--not peace.

Editorial page editors often have problems with their staff cartoonists for reasons similar to the one you raised. Cartoons are often not fair and balanced or even accurate. The editors claim readers are more interested in opinion columns, which can deliver a well-rounded and reasoned verbal case, but this is not true. Readers always look at the cartoons first. This is often a source of strife and it's also why the number of cartoonists have dwindled in the MSM. The corporate media cannot stand loose cannons. The existing corporate cartoonists who enjoy cushy salaries and win Pulitzers are those who support the globalist narrative. That is, they cry for more taxes, more statism and more political correctness.

Not having an editor is terrific for a cartoonist's freedom, even though at times it's good to get their input on things such as what you wrote me about.

Thanks,

Ben

The Evil Known as Income Taxes:



Frank Chodorov claimed the income tax was the ‘root of all evil’ and he was right. Once we were inflicted with the scam known as the Federal Reserve, the mass robbery known as the income tax soon followed. We are forced to pay for our own enslavement. Oh sure, they tell us it’s ‘voluntary.’ Try not volunteering and see what happens. Heroes such as Irwin Schiff resisted it and they locked him up. He died shackled in a prison hospital while Clinton pardoned his drug pushing friends as well as the billionaire Marc Rich.

But I digress. The income tax was first promoted as a means to make the rich ‘pay their fair share.’ At first only the rich had to pay, and they only had to pony up 7 percent at the most. Nowadays it’s close to 40 percent and everyone has to pay. Even if the tyrants refund some taxpayer money, every year we are still forced to reveal all of our finances to our masters. The IRS has become a rogue agency and they can harass us and seize our money at any time. We are all guilty until we can prove our innocence.

Nowadays tax slaves are forced to pay in a record amounts, and yet we continue to roll up record debt and deficit spending. The government has grown to gargantuan proportions. We’re forced to fund the bankers' wars and global conquests. Entitlement spending is at a record high. We have all paid into social security for years and yet that’s broke, too. They pinched it and spent it long ago. It now consists of nothing more than an enormous basket of IOUs. 

The tax code has reached nearly 75,000 pages. Nobody can keep up with it or understand it. Many must rely on ‘experts’ and we pay people to do our taxes. Everyone has broken tax laws one way or another. That’s the way they like it—we’re all criminals who are also forced to violate our 5th Amendment right. We must incriminate ourselves. The other day I was driving on Highway 2 through Kalispell. A young person was dressed in a Statue of Liberty costume and beckoning customers to use a tax service called, “Liberty Tax.’ That’s an oxymoron if there ever was one. We’re bombarded by TV commercials touting services that encourage us to play the game ‘to win.’ We The People can never win. It’s a rigged game benefiting only those at the top of the pyramid.

Those winners are the central bankers and the private Federal Reserve that they own. They own a printing press that they use to give them riches and power and we have to pay that back—with interest. It’s debt slave currency—not real money. It’s impossible to pay back unless we have printing presses ourselves—and that would be considered counterfeiting. Now they want to do away with cash altogether and get us all on the grid to make what we earn and spend trackable. It will also give them more power to steal from us. It’s about control.

As I said, the income tax was originally presented as a means to sock it to the rich and take some of their passive income. They were going after the windfall profit gleaned from investments such as stocks and bonds. At the last minute they also slipped in wages as ‘windfall.’ We working class folk work hard for our money. We trade our labor for money. It’s an equal exchange. Where is the windfall in that? The rich corporations are able to use lawyers to game the system. The average Joe doesn’t have the resources for that, so the workers and small businessmen get socked the most. The powerless always bear the brunt. It’s the screwing of the average man and it’s unconstitutional.

Meanwhile, our so-called government representatives amass vast riches while in office. Career politicians are the new royalty and they pass legislation to enrichen themselves and their ultra rich buddies. The Clintons claimed they were broke, but now they are worth well over $50 million. What did they do to amass such wealth? They pulled the levers of graft and power, that’s how. Will anyone in Congress ever end the pernicious income tax? Of course not. It’s there as a tool of control and tyranny.

These are a few things to consider when you shovel off your hard-earned income into the pockets of your masters. At the very least, realize that you are NOT doing your civic duty by allowing yourself to be robbed. It’s about control. They could easily print up their own money—they don’t need yours to waste.

It’s time to end the Fed and their gestapo, the IRS.
