Obama's Long War of Foreverness

Obama's Long War of Foreverness

February 23, 2015
While most people are focused on ISIS (or ISIL, Islamic State or whatever we’re calling that group of jihadist lunatics these days) and their theatrically brutal atrocities, President Obama just sent his Authorization for the Use of Military Force to Congress. The 2001 AUMF is the thing that has ...
Brian Williams & the Frog of War

Brian Williams & the Frog of War

February 17, 2015
Sure, it boggles my mind how Brian Williams could embellish and “misremember” an event like his helicopter ride in Iraq years ago, but the firestorm around his imagined combat experience is inordinately fierce compared to the relative silence around all of the other Iraq War-era ‘misrememberin...
Vaccines: How to Avoid Killing and Maiming Children

Vaccines: How to Avoid Killing and Maiming Children

February 09, 2015
I’ve been wanting to do a cartoon on vaccination and the anti-vaxxers for a while and now that we have politicians stumbling over themselves following the measles outbreak, the time is right. Thanks to the Magic Kingdom, even politicians like Rand Paul are trying to fit matters of public health (...
King Abdullah:  Royal Pain

King Abdullah: Royal Pain

February 05, 2015
I was curious how you could be king of a country that beheads people, doesn’t let women drive and regularly flogs people and be remembered as a “reformer” when you die. Could it have something to do with all that oil and the regional stability thing, perhaps? You can read more at http://www....
The Muhammad Minute

The Muhammad Minute

January 28, 2015
After the terror attacks in Paris, I wanted to take a deeper dive into the supposed rational for attacking cartoonists. It’s because they drew and disrespected Muhammad, right? Nobody is allowed to depict Muhammad since it is forbidden in Islam. Is it really? You can read more at http://www.Ma...
Whip Steve Scalise

Whip Steve Scalise

January 20, 2015
Last week I was working on this cartoon relating to extremist Christian ideology when along came the terrible events caused by extremist Muslim ideology. Go figure. Needless to say, the Charlie Hebdo massacre gave Congressman Steve Scalise a reprieve from his very own white supremacist scandal. (...
Je suis Charlie

Je suis Charlie

January 10, 2015
After the tragic attack in Paris, freedom of speech seems more precious than ever. How anyone could become so twisted as to think that killing cartoonists, including an 80-year-old man, is in any way an honor to Muhammad, is beyond me. While Charlie Hebdo is a publication that is centered around c...
The Year in Crazy: 2014

The Year in Crazy: 2014

January 04, 2015
2014 saw everything from a mooching rancher and his well-armed militia buddies fighting off the federal government to the killing of an unarmed black man sparking a nationwide conversation on race. You can read more at http://www.MarkFiore.com. Stay up-to-date with the latest animation! http://tin...
Dear Leader 2

Dear Leader 2

December 27, 2014
Now that Sony has completely caved to cyberterrorist demands, let’s see what movie they’ve chosen to run in place of The Interview. Sure, Kim Jong Un is a nasty despot, but do we really think North Korea is capable of attacking movie theaters all across the United States? Methinks Sony Picture...
Citigroup Democracy

Citigroup Democracy

December 21, 2014
Now that the secret back room dealings are done and the latest budget bill passed Congress (of course, at the 11th hour), we can see the thumbprints of Wall Street once again. Actually, more than thumbprints, Citigroup actually wrote part of it. They managed to gut “Section 716” of Dodd-Frank...
Cheney’s Torture Anthem

Cheney’s Torture Anthem

December 15, 2014
Even though Dick Cheney isn’t the only one responsible for the stain of torture on the United States, he’s the most, shall we say, colorful? If you think the awfulness of Bush-era torture is behind us, think again. Thanks to the just-released Senate torture report, we now know of all kinds of ...
Who Killed Michael Brown?

Who Killed Michael Brown?

December 08, 2014
It seems that everyone but Darren Wilson is responsible for the death of Michael Brown. It’s Michael Brown’s fault, black-on-black violence is at fault, it’s a culture of disrespect and lawbreaking that’s at fault, take your pick. Perhaps the best spew of logic came from Rudy Giuliani, who...
Congressional Turkeys

Congressional Turkeys

December 08, 2014
It’s time to take a break from the current stream of depressing news and give thanks for turkeys you may know and love . . . or know and despise. What better place to turn for some buffoonery than the newly elected and reshuffled Congress. (Don’t worry, I’ll keep focusing on issues of race, ...
Sustainable Keystone XL

Sustainable Keystone XL

November 22, 2014
Who says Keystone XL isn’t a sustainable, renewable project? Just ask Tar Sands Timmy . . . and Senator (for now) Mary Landrieu. Now that “jobs” claims have been debunked and US domestic oil production is booming, the Keystone XL pipeline project has morphed into primarily a political symbol...
The Screw You Strategy

The Screw You Strategy

November 18, 2014
Humans are a little hard to figure out sometimes, and that makes for an interesting Democracy. Congressional Republicans just finished a successful campaign that focused on not being Obama. Forget about the issues and actually having a platform, the party of We’re-Not-Obama came out on top. (Yo...
The Last Campaign Ad Ever

The Last Campaign Ad Ever

November 08, 2014
Even before the big loss for the Democrats, we had all lost. The money pouring into politics from Super PACs and shady political “nonprofit” organizations was stealing Democracy from you and me. Financial contributions from individual voters is being eclipsed by the big bucks pouring in from f...
Gamergate Wants You!

Gamergate Wants You!

November 01, 2014
Do you ever get the feeling that news stories are extensions of high school spats? First Sarah Palin’s family was brawling at a party, now a boyfriend-gone-bitter sparked an online flamewar unlike any other. The Gamergate story would be very silly if it didn’t involve threats of violence again...
Ebola Buddy

Ebola Buddy

October 30, 2014
Now that politicians and pundits are using Ebola to score political points, it seems only natural for Ebola Buddy to be a vice presidential candidate, or at very least a trusted political consultant. (Never mind that thousands are dying in West Africa and you should donate to Doctors Without Border...
