John McCain's Bomb It

John McCain's Bomb It

October 26, 2014
Even though Obama decided we should bomb Iraq and drop some humanitarian supplies to help the Yazidis, it hasn't been enough bombing for John McCain. As usual, he wants more military might 'cause that will, you know, fix everything over in the Middle East. (Read more at http://www.MarkFiore.com.) S...
Camp Do-Nuttin', recess for Congress

Camp Do-Nuttin', recess for Congress

October 26, 2014
Now that members of Congress are taking their summer recess, no meaningful legislation will get passed. In other words, nothing has changed. This Congress, particularly in the House, looks at legislating as something to be done after campaigning, after appearing on cable news shows, after fundrais...
Not Equal: Gaza in over 1000 frames

Not Equal: Gaza in over 1000 frames

August 10, 2014
I updated this video after a week had gone by-- adding about 600 more deaths on the Palestinian side and 10 on the Israeli side. Hopefully, that's the last update for now. There's a tendency in some Gaza reporting to treat both sides as tough, equally-matched adversaries. Israel must stand up to t...

Rick Perry's Operation Strong Candidate

July 28, 2014
With Texas governor Rick Perry's recent announcement that he's sending National Guard troops to the border, campaign season has begun. Is it just a coincidence that he was in Iowa when this news started to break? You can read more at http://www.MarkFiore.com
Climate Deniers: All Washed Up

Climate Deniers: All Washed Up

July 20, 2014
Ogg & Uck are back, this time talking about collapsing ice sheets and sea level rise. As usual, mayhem is headed their way, but they're pretty much just still a couple of arguing cave men. (You can read more at http://www.MarkFiore.com)
Blasty the Drone, To Protect & Swerve

Blasty the Drone, To Protect & Swerve

July 20, 2014
The rise of killer drones abroad continues, as does the rise of fireworks-photographing, beer-delivering drones at home. With a huge variety of uses and a very politicized, lethal start, these robots in the sky promise to be one of the most difficult-to-regulate gadgets in the United States. (You ...
Hobby Lobby's Corporate Commandments

Hobby Lobby's Corporate Commandments

July 07, 2014
Corporations already won the right of free speech and thanks to the Supreme Court, now dump unlimited cash into U.S. elections. Now they've won freedom of religion and the right to selectively follow our laws. Sure, Alito says this "only" applies to matters of contraception and women's h...
Neocon Reunion Tour

Neocon Reunion Tour

July 06, 2014
They're baaack! The neocon buffoons who got us into the mess in Iraq are making the rounds on cable news and other news outlets, playing the part of foreign policy experts once again. These guys should still be hiding under rocks and banned from ever holding forth on any foreign policy matters, le...
Create-Your-Own Caliphate

Create-Your-Own Caliphate

July 06, 2014
It's a good time to be in Iraq, if you're a crazed Muslim zealot bent on creating a caliphate, that is. Iraq is suddenly back on everyone's radar now that ISIS is taking over large chunks of that formerly-occupied nation. ISIS, you know, the guys who were a little too extreme for Al Qaeda. You ca...
NRA: Jihadi Rifle Association

NRA: Jihadi Rifle Association

July 05, 2014
With the recent shooting in Las Vegas, it's becoming more apparent that the crazed anti-government conspiracy nuts are a danger, to say the least. What is the largest, most well-funded group fanning these flames of insanity? You guessed it, the NRA! I've dealt more specifically with Wayne LaPierr...
Bowe Bergdahl: Army of Wha'?!

Bowe Bergdahl: Army of Wha'?!

July 01, 2014
Whoever thought bringing home a prisoner of war would be so controversial? I never thought there was so much wiggle room in the old "leave no man behind" adage. The two main issues that complicate this POW return are that Bowe Bergdahl may have walked off on his own and the fact that Rep...
VA Hotline Updated

VA Hotline Updated

June 06, 2014
One of the first things I did after the VA story broke was call the VA's phone number for health care information. At once, I entered a Kafkaesque world of confusing phone options and recorded web addresses I was supposed to visit instead of calling on the phone. ("Just go to 'V-A dot gov for...
Antitrust Us!

Antitrust Us!

May 29, 2014
We have to decrease competition in order to increase competition! Sit back, relax and get ready for humongous corporations to explain how fewer choices mean more and better choices. (Or so goes one of the arguments in support of the AT&T and DirecTV deal.) Read more at http://www.markfiore.co...
Learn to Speak Benghazi

Learn to Speak Benghazi

May 29, 2014
If you thought the Benghazi tragedy was a thing of the past, think again. House Republicans are falling over themselves to rev up the scandal machine in an attempt to sink Obama, but more importantly, stop Hillary Clinton's march to the White House. Even though there have been numerous Congression...
Creative Execution

Creative Execution

May 29, 2014
I would still be opposed to the death penalty if we executed prisoners by tickling them to death. Now, thanks to Oklahoma's governor rushing an execution, more people now know that "lethal injection" is not as neat and civilized as it sounds, regardless of what you think about the death p...
NRA Hypnosis: Guns, Sweet Guns!

NRA Hypnosis: Guns, Sweet Guns!

May 05, 2014
I had already been planning on cartooning the National Rifle Association's ridiculous annual meeting when my nephew's unarmed friend got killed in what is shaping up to be another "Stand Your Ground" case. The circumstances surrounding this shooting may make things a little more difficult...
Cliven Bundy's Home on the Range

Cliven Bundy's Home on the Range

April 28, 2014
In case you haven't heard about cattle rancher Cliven Bundy in Nevada, he's the guy who has become the latest anti-gub'mint celebrity for the libertarian gun crowd. Ol' Cliven Bundy and I have a lot in common. Really! (Except for the racist part.) Both our families homesteaded in the West and st...
George W. Bush's Art of Legacy

George W. Bush's Art of Legacy

April 21, 2014
his painted portraits of many of the big important people who he met during his presidency? Okay, I just couldn't resist this one. He's capturing emotion! He's showing Putin's personality! Look! He painted a cuddly duck for his grandchild! (Cartoon not necessary for that one.) He's trying to ...
