Justice Jackson took both a constitutional oath, administered by Chief Justice John Roberts, and a judicial oath, administered by Justice Breyer.

The brief swearing in ceremony took place in the West Conference Room at the Supreme Court, before a small gathering of Judge Jackson’s family.

Her husband, Patrick G. Jackson, held the Bible.

Anticipation


WORD!! Dare we hope? … “At least 874 people have been charged in connection with a coup attempt and insurrection. We can’t leave out the guy who ordered the terrorist attack.”

claytoonz

At least 874 people have been charged by the Department of Justice in connection to the attack on our Capitol building by Donald Trump’s white nationalist terrorists who were trying to overturn an election.

DOJ has raided the home of Jeffrey Clark, a former official from Trump’s DOJ who pushed to decertify the election and wanted to use the department to push Donald Trump’s election lies. Trump tried to install Clark as acting attorney general in the days before the January 6 insurrection when top DOJ officials refused to lend credibility to his voter fraud lies. Clark pushed agency leaders to issue a letter to states saying they had the authority to replace electors with those who would back Trump. They did not have that authority.
DOJ leaders and members of the White House counsel’s office threatened to resign en masse if Trump made the change.

DOJ has seized the…

Ketchup and Treason


This was really serious!! Plenty confirmation of things we knew … on a lighter side: “I already knew Trump and ketchup were perfect for each other.”

claytoonz

My readers were quick to send me suggestions yesterday during the January 6 Committee hearings where Cassidy Hutchinson was dropping one bombshell after another.

My readers wanted me to focus on Trump’s ketchup tantrum when he got mad over his attorney general Bill Barr’s public rejection of his election fraud claims. Or, they wanted me to draw something on him lunging at his Secret Service detail and trying to grab the steering wheel so he could go to the Capitol with his white nationalist terrorists and help them even further with his coup attempt. But, while those are fun, salacious, and important to note, and I really do hate ketchup, I don’t think they’re the main takeaway from yesterday’s hearing.

I think the biggest and most important revelation from yesterday’s hearing is that Donald Trump was told there were armed people in his insurrection mob of white nationalist terrorists, and…

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE RAINBOW FLAG

It goes back to 1978, when the artist Gilbert Baker, an openly gay man and a drag queen, designed the first rainbow flag. Baker later revealed that he was urged by Harvey Milk, one of the first openly gay elected officials in the US, to create

a symbol of pride for the gay community.

Thomas Makes My Case


WORD!! … “I say impeach the bastards! Then impose terms limits ion judges … no body should have a job for life. Thomas and his 5 cohorts are nothing more than political hacks and none deserve the title ‘your honor’!”

In Saner Thought

I have written many times about how the SCOTUS has crapped on the spirit of their position……and Thomas is making it more likely something needs done.

Him and his wife have got politically involved on several occasions…..involved in stuff that he has had a hand in crafting law. And now he proves my point….the next attack is on ‘marriage equality’ and gay rights.

Here is Thomas’ latest….

Attached to the Supreme Court’s majority opinion in overturning Roe v. Wade on Friday was a solo concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas that suggested he’d like to also reconsider cases involving contraception, same-sex marriage, and other private sexual conduct. The pundit consensus has since deemed the chances of the majority of the high court ruling against birth control and gay rights as pretty low, but in her latest op-ed for the Washington Post, Ruth Marcus puts out a red flag…

A Republican Problem


Way ahead of his time … CARLIN!! … “George Carlin was right. When it comes to Republicans, “If you’re pre-born, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.”

claytoonz

I drew a similar cartoon about a month ago but focused on baby formula. That cartoon actually grew from this idea, but I wanted to return to it today.

In the blog for that cartoon, I included George Carlin’s famous rant about Republicans and their “pro-life” position that if you’re pre-born, you good, but after you’re born, you’re fucked.

One ranking has the United States 33rd out of 36 first-world nations in infant mortality. That’s nearly six deaths per 1,000 births. Of 41 nations UNICEF ranked on child poverty, the United States was fourth from the bottom. In the same UNICEF ranking, the U.S. ranks 32 in mental well-being and 38 in physical health.

Republicans are excited about ending abortion and protecting the life of a fetus, but fuck that fetus once it’s a legitimate human being. Republicans oppose social welfare while loving corporate welfare. We spend twice on corporate…

Quotations on Fascism

Image


On target!! … “Fascism is not something simply to be studied in historical terms from the past, something that happened in other places and times. We, in the United States of America, face the rise of fascism in the form of religious fanaticism and bigotry against minorities, women, and the poor. If we do not act and vote against this rising flood of far-right extremism, we risk losing the freedom and democracy for which our ancestors fought and often gave their lives to defend.”

charles french words reading and writing

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.”

                                                                Franklin D. Roosevelt

ernest-hemingway-beard-1

“Are you a communist?”
“No I am an anti-fascist”
“For a long time?”
“Since I have understood fascism.”

                                      Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls

“A fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends.”
