Mad Hatter Mueller makes "Happy Birthday" a felony

Oh, I wish I could draw a straight line.

Or even a gay one, because I have an idea for a cartoon of Special Counsel Robert Mueller as the Mad Hatter in his continuing criminal investigation in search of a crime.

He came up with a doozy on Friday.

"According to special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian citizens and 3 entities, Russian trolls were persuasive enough to get at least one US citizen to stand up and wish their boss a very special happy birthday," Quartz reported.

From the indictment:
For example, on or about May 29, 2016, Defendants and their co-conspirators, through an ORGANIZATION-controlled social media account, arranged for a real U.S. person to stand in front of the White House in the District of Columbia under false pretenses to hold a sign that read “Happy 55th Birthday Dear Boss.” Defendants and their co-conspirators informed the real U.S. person that the sign was for someone who “is a leader here and our boss . . . our funder.” PRIGOZHIN’s Russian passport identifies his date of birth as June 1, 1961.

Pranking someone really meddled in our election. The fate of our Republic was in peril on that one.

Mad Hatter Mueller thinks this is a crime worth the $10 million or so we have already spent on this investigation.

Mad Hatter Mueller also thinks we need the federal government to protect us from Russian agents pranking us.

Let's get real.

Mad Hatter Mueller's band of thugs with badges let Hillary get away with laundering through her Fake Charity foreign bribes including those from Russian oligarchs, who received in exchange approval of control of 20% of the U.S. production of uranium.

But now Mad Hatter Mueller is going after pranksters.

I am sickened to learn how awful and contemptuous of the law Mueller and Comey were. They were our FBI directors for 16 years until Trump finally dumped Comey.

The fish rots from the head. I hope that was as far as the rot got at the FBI.


From Leslie Eastman's review at Legal Insurrection:
Surber, a recovering journalist with over 30 years of experience, has been cataloging the #FakeNews that has been regularly offered as serious analysis of President Donald Trump’s actions, policies, and opinions. He has brought his enormous collection together in the longest, most serious book he has yet written: Fake News Follies 2017.
"Fake News Follies of 2017" is available on Kindle and in paperback.

Autographed copies are available. Email me at for details. I am including a "director's cut." I'll email you back the original Chapter 1 that I cut because while the chapter was amusing, it really had nothing to do with the "Fake News Follies of 2017."

Ben Garrison did the cover and I am so happy with it. I told him what the book was about, sent him a copy of the manuscript, and he came up with a perfect cover. I am so pleased.


  1. I suspect that's NOT as far as the rot got.

  2. This whole fiasco has triggered all kinds of odd rememberies in my head. Movies like "The Sting" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels". Or maybe a Dylan song - "In the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you".

  3. Considering the Choom Gang and the Ozark Mafia had a total of 16 years to infiltrate the place, it's doubtful the head is all that's rotten.

    At least J Edna did what he did for the good of the country (mostly).

  4. From the election of Slick Willie, the moral compass of this country took a big dive. A country reflects it's leadership.
    Same with FBI.

  5. My guess is the rot at the FBI goes so deep everyone above the rank of SAC should be fired.

  6. When laws are illegal, only Commissars and Gauleiters will have laws.

  7. If doofus comedy is now a Federal rap, SNL is sooo screwed.

  8. A comment from Bill Belichick several years that I heard and haven't forgotten:

    If you can't do your job, we'll replace you with someone who can.
