As the weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama ponders bombing his Nobel Peace Prize-winning SEVENTH country it seemed like a good time to take a look at the absolute joke that the Peace Prize has become in the past several decades.
Callous murderer of four human beings at Benghazi just to spare himself embarrassment and inconvenience while running for reelection.
THE KILLER: BARACK OBAMA, (D) – This economy-destroying, healthcare-ruining, job-eliminating and race-baiting demagogue has killed even more people than the repulsive George W Bush did! If Bush’s body-count had been higher he may have qualified for a Nobel Peace Prize himself. In his spare time Obama loves killing people with drone attacks, denying them the due process he insists upon for even the most violent Muslim terrorists.

* NAIA *
PIKEVILLE RULES THE WORLD – We aren’t even at Labor Day yet but already we’ve had the 2013 season’s first NAIA team upset of an NCAA Division ONE team! Yesterday the PIKEVILLE UNIVERSITY BEARS played road warriors against Division One’s Morehead State Eagles and came out on top in a 13-10 defensive epic. Every week in college football season sees at least one NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) team topple higher level NCAA teams so stay tuned!
GRAND VIEW UNIVERSITY ALSO RULES THE WORLD! – What did I tell you about NAIA teams and upsets? Last night saw ANOTHER NAIA team topple an NCAA Division ONE team in their own house! Iowa’s GRAND VIEW VIKINGS won a 21-16 Instant Classic against Division One’s Drake University Bulldogs. They know how to play football in the NAIA!
SEEING THE LIGHT(S) – Meanwhile the MONTANA STATE UNIVERSITY- NORTHERN LIGHTS likewise logged a road victory. In the Lights’ case that triumph came against fellow NAIA team the DICKINSON STATE UNIVERSITY BLUE HAWKS in a very memorable 14-0 shutout of Continue reading →

It! The Terror From Beyond Space
IN THE MIDDLE 1980’s/ WAY DOWN ON LEVEL 31 …
Before MST3K there was The Texas 27 Film Vault! Balladeer’s Blog continues its examination of this neglected cult show from the 1980’s. Randy Clower and Richard Malmos, our machine-gun toting members of the Film Vault Corps (“the few, the proud, the sarcastic”) do their usual bit of showing and mocking an old serial then showing and mocking a bad movie.
Thanks to my interview with Randy Clower, the show’s co-creator and co-star and thanks to my research through VERY old newspapers plus emailed memories from other T27FV fans I’m taking a look at another episode of the show where an exact broadcast date can be determined.
ORIGINALLY BROADCAST: Saturday July 12th, 1986 from 10:30pm to 1:00am.
SERIAL: Before the night’s movie Randy and Richard would often present old serials. In this episode of the show our “Film Vault Technicians First Class” showed an episode of the 1950 Columbia serial Atom Man vs Superman to be mocked. Kirk Alyn starred as Superman with Lyle Talbot as his archenemy Lex Luthor. Lex has his own secret identity in this serial – each episode he dons a lead mask and oversees the villainy as “Atom Man”.
This was one of the liveliest and most campily watchable serials of the 50′s. Especially laughable are the bits when Superman “flies” – an effect achieved by switching from live footage of Kirk Alyn to INSERTED CARTOON FOOTAGE of Superman flying. Think of the ‘Toons in Roger Rabbit interacting with the live backgrounds and you have the idea.
FILM VAULT LORE: This episode of The Texas 27 Film Vault was the first to come with a Viewer Discretion warning. Continue reading →

Obama: If I had a son he would look like the murderers of Shorty Belton … and skin color is the ONLY thing that matters to me!
Liberal African-Americans and Conservative African-Americans marked the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s famed 1963 speech in the usual way that American political partisans do. Liberals and Conservatives cheapen everything they touch with their squabbling and this day was no exception. Liberal demagogues like Barack Obama acted like Continue reading →

Balladeer’s Blog presents its usual Sunday look at the previous day’s college football action on this, the REAL opening weekend for the 2013 season.
GETTING A JUMP ON THE WEEKEND – in the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) the ROCKY MOUNTAIN COLLEGE BATTLIN’ BEARS and the JAMESTOWN COLLEGE JIMMIES kicked off the action Friday night. The Jimmies led RMC by a score of 13-6 in the 2nd Quarter but the Battlin’ Bears’ quarterback Bryce Baker (Official Balladeer’s Blog nickname B Squared) stayed cool. Baker rallied his team with three passing Touchdowns and a rushing score as well. Rocky Mountain College took a 20-13 lead by halftime and won this opening game of the 2013 season by a final score of 34-20.
BLUE DRAGONS SCORCH THE RED RAVENS – In this colorful matchup yesterday from the Jayhawk Conference the HUTCHINSON BLUE DRAGONS took it on the road and torched all the feathers off of the COFFEYVILLE RED RAVENS. The score in this clash was tied up 7-7 at the end of the 1st Quarter but Hutch’s Ryan Weese added 2 Field Goals in the 2nd Quarter to give the Blue Dragons a 13-7 lead at the half. Hutchinson added 21 points in the 3rd and 10 more in the 4th with Coffeyville managing just 7 points total in the 2nd half. Hutchinson’s Quarterback “Lethal” Luke Barnes went 28 of 46 for 228 yards and 2 Touchdowns in this 44-14 rout.
THE BATTLE IN THE VALLEY – The IOWA WESTERN REIVERS, the reigning champions of NJCAA Football, began their defense of the title yesterday by facing the TRINITY VALLEY COLLEGE CARDINALS in the 2nd Annual Battle in the Valley. A very game Cardinals team led 7-3 at the end of the 1st Quarter but the Reivers notched a 2nd Quarter Touchdown to take a 10-7 halftime lead. Iowa Western held a 17-10 advantage going into the 4th Quarter but the Cardinals, driving from their own 7 yard line, moved the ball 93 yards to knot the game up at 17 all with under Continue reading →

Professional hatemonger Al Sharpton
Al Sharpton, emaciated racist and homophobe, has cried foul once again. When three teenagers recently shot a young Australian man attending college in the U.S. the odd number of assailants meant that two black perpetrators were arrested but only one white teen. Citing this as a clear case of the way the American justice system discriminates against African Americans Sharpton called for protests in every major city.
The object of these protests would be to insist that the number of white criminals arrested in mixed-race crimes MUST be equivalent to the number of black criminals arrested. Attorney General Eric Holder, known for his efforts to break EVERY crime on the books while heading the Justice Department, expressed solidarity with Sharpton.
“Either arrest a random white dude or let one of the black dudes go!” the perpetually sleazy-looking Holder exclaimed to Continue reading →

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The 2013 college football season kicks off tonight in the divisions covered by Balladeer’s Blog! Tonight at 8pm Eastern Time the ROCKY MOUNTAIN COLLEGE BATTLIN’ BEARS from the Frontier Conference host the JAMESTOWN COLLEGE JIMMIES from the North Star Conference.
This matchup in the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) is the only game tonight but Saturday will see a full slate of gridiron action. THREE new colleges add football teams this year in the NAIA – the WARNER UNIVERSITY ROYALS, the REINHARDT UNIVERSITY EAGLES and the OKLAHOMA BAPTIST UNIVERSITY BISON (technically relaunching football after stopping it in 1940).
In 2014 even more NAIA institutions will add football: the SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY FIRE, the COLLEGE OF IDAHO COYOTES and Continue reading →

Part 8: Niagara Falls Death Trap – As part 7 concluded Hodadeion, the Iroquois god of magic, was alarmed to find that the twin enchantresses who were in reality two giant white herons had flown him in a huge basket to a rock at the top of what is now called Niagara Falls. They had stranded him there surrounded by a massive volume of water roaring its way past the small outcropping of rock the demigod was on, ultimately descending in a loud roar of falling liquid.
Hodadeion did not know what fate awaited him in that precarious position, or what dire menace the Heron Maidens expected to assault him in his perilous situation but he Continue reading →
