Boehner to Quit Congress: The Tears of a Clown
Previous cartoon: Dancing With the Star
Donald Trump continues to increase his commanding lead in the polls. There are a variety of reasons for this. For one thing, he’s not politically correct. I suspect most Americans, like me, are becoming very tired of being called ‘racist’ merely because we don’t want to go along with the New World Order. That phrase was first voiced by the first George H. W. Bush. To be sure, Trump comes from the 1 percent, but he’s not controlled by them. Trump seems to care about bringing back jobs and self-respect to the middle class. Will he do that? Can he do that? It remains to be seen.
Most Americans are sick of the Bushes. We're sick of the Clintons. We do not want dynasties. America is not set up to be run by royal families. We are not supposed to be a monarchy. We are tired of politicians who speak from a teleprompter. We are tired of politicians who are afraid to debate without first running issues through focus groups. We are tired of the fake liars who say one thing then do the opposite. We are tired of the phony baloney politicians who are run by lobbyists, special interests and the big-moneyed oligarchs who really run the show. Trump, for all his many flaws, is genuine. He does not dance around issues; he wants to solve them. Americans are saying, “Let’s face the music and dance.” They want to do the Trump Tango. —Ben Garrison
By the way, I spelled it 'habla' instead of 'hablo' on my first attempt. I fixed it. Hell, I don't speak Spanish, either!

I sometimes get positive email from people with good ideas for cartoons. Surprisingly, all of the ideas have been good. I haven't been able to draw them all, but I have thought about them. The idea for this cartoon came from a certain Alex L. I realized it was a good idea worth developing and so I did.
The more we let government decide things for us, the more we become their cattle. We aren't supposed to question government. After all, they have our best interests at heart, right? We fear our militarized police and they treat us like animals, not citizens. The government says we don't need to know if we're eating GMO foods. We don't need to worry about fluoride in our tap water. A little bit of poison can't hurt us. Sure. We don't need to worry about the falsehoods being told to us by mainstream media. We are burdened with debt (especially college kids) and debt slave money is designed to shackle us. We all become poor and on the dole. It's just big government taking care of us, right?
A few years ago I drew a cartoon that featured forced inoculations and I was laughed at. But now it has become a law in California and some presidential candidates such as Ben Carson are openly espousing it. It's inoculation by force. It's inoculation by the point of a gun. Do citizens no longer have a choice about what they eat and drink? Don't we have control of our own bodies? Don't we have say? Well, we'd better start speaking out against these things before the government decides we are ready to be sent to one of their slaughterhouses. --Ben Garrison

TRUMP SLAYS THE DRAGON OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
One of the reasons for Trump’s popularity is he speaks from the heart and not a teleprompter. He doesn’t need a script and he’s not afraid to speak bluntly. Most of all, he’s not afraid of 'political correctness.' He’s not afraid to say “Merry Christmas” or call illegal immigration ‘illegal.’ He’s for respecting our laws, which includes closing down the currently wide open borders. For that he’s called a nut and a racist and a hater and all sorts of things. He doesn’t care.
For too long we’ve been subjected to cynical, pre-packaged political robots who are installed to further the agenda of globalists at the top. They buy out and own the politicians. Well, Trump can’t be bought out. He’s already rich. Lobbyists will not be able to control him. Personal scandals? He’s fearless. His life is already an open book. We know about his marriages and affairs and it doesn’t matter. Because instead of walking delicately on politically correct eggshells, he fearlessly stomps his feet and says “Enough!” He wants to stop exporting jobs overseas. He wants to stop making crappy deals such as the one Obama and Kerry just made with Iran—a deal that didn’t even return American captives. A deal that allows Iran to do their own inspecting. Deals where we give our leverage away for nothing while giving billions back to a country bent on hating America and destroying Israel. I doubt Trump would have made that deal.
Trump is used to dealing and getting things done. Telling blunt truths is apparently is not politically correct in either party, but so be it. Many Americans find Trump’s approach to be very refreshing—including me!--Ben Garrison
Hillary Wipes Her Server in Her Bathroom!
Hillary should be marched to prison, not the presidency. For years she has gotten away with scandals, including Whitewater, Travelgate, Benghazi and now she has obviously committed treasonous acts including letting state secrets go to other countries in exchange for Clinton Foundation donations as well as erasing evidence of top secret material from her private server.
Richard Nixon's ghost must be whispering in her ear..."Just tell them you're not a crook and erase the tapes--er, your server!" This woman is a traitor who has grossly disrespected her duties and her country.
If she’s elected, her arrogance, her sense of entitlement and her criminality will get even worse. --Ben Garrison
First of all: I’m not necessarily endorsing Trump. It’s just that the more he’s attacked by the neocon conservatives who run the Republican party, the more I want to root for him. Last night was example. All the other candidates fielded standard ‘presidential’ questions while Trump was mercilessly attacked—especially from Megyn Kelly. It was painfully obvious what she was doing—she had her marching orders from the neocons to make Trump look bad. Instead Fox News looked bad. More credibility lost from the mainstream media.
“La Raza” praised Bush’s performance. “The Race” of course, wants to erase the borders and create ‘Aztlan,’ and Jeb Bush is willing to accommodate them. After all, it’s part of his daddy’s ‘New World Order.’ The elite want a North American Union. Trump doesn’t want that and so he is attacked as being ‘racist.’ Poppycock. Again, it makes me like Trump because he’s had enough of political correctness. It’s not ‘racist’ to want the borders to be controlled for one’s own country. We see what happens when all sorts of unsavory criminals are dumped by Mexico into the U.S. Terrible crimes are committed and they get away with those crimes due to our ‘sanctuary cities.’
Let’s see what happens when the neocons begin stealing the primaries from Trump. I have a feeling Trump won’t be as quiescent about that as Ron Paul was.
Meanwhile, Rand Paul and Chris Christie got into a heated exchange. Naturally, I agreed what Paul said. It's too bad Fox News won't give Rand much time. They did the same thing to his dad.
