That famed saying attributed to Aleister Crowley nicely summarizes the position that the repulsive white collar criminals of the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are all but forcing on the rest of us. These sickening figures who spend their entire careers barely one step ahead of a criminal indictment actually think they’re fit to dictate the terms under which the rest of us are to live our lives while they slither through history circumventing those same terms.

TO THE FOURTH POWER (2013) – This film was one of the sleeper hits of last year. You’d think it would be impossible to do something creative with the mock documentary format at this point but To The Fourth Power proves to be a thought-provoking and inventive piece set “just a few years from now”.
The movie depicts a near future in which the Continue reading

Balladeer’s Blog continues its examination of the neglected Pulp Hero G-8. This continues a story-by- story look at the adventures of this World War One American fighter pilot who – along with his two wingmen the Battle Aces – took on various supernatural and super- scientific menaces thrown at the Allied Powers by the Central Powers of Germany, Austria- Hungary and the Ottoman Muslim Turks.
G-8 was created by Robert J Hogan in 1933 when World War One was still being called simply the World War or the Great War. Over the next eleven years Hogan wrote 110 stories featuring the adventures of G-8, the street-smart pug Nippy Weston and the brawny giant Bull Martin. The regular cast was rounded out by our hero’s archenemy Doktor Krueger, by Battle, G-8’s British manservant and by our hero’s girlfriend R-1: an American nurse/ spy whose real name, like G-8’s was never revealed. G-8’s war-time pulp adventures were a clear influence on the Timely Comics (later Marvel Comics) character Captain America.
7. SQUADRON OF CORPSES (April 1934) – G-8’s archenemy Doktor Krueger is at it again! Once again the devilish German scientist has come up with a scientific menace that manages to prey on the superstitions of mankind. Dead German aces are back from the dead and flying into action again against the Allied pilots in the skies over No Man’s Land.
The animated, shambling corpses are impervious to bullets and retain the aerial combat skills they had in life, making them doubly dangerous since they can’t be killed a second time. Even more perplexing is the way Krueger has managed it so that each time a dead German flying ace is “resurrected” an Allied pilot falls ill and dies. Continue reading
This UNANIMOUS (as in even the Liberals on the Supreme Court realized how far out of line Little Barry Obama was on this issue) decision reigning in ONE of the MANY abuses of this weak, inept and crooked little man came at a good time. The national mood out in the real world has been one that it might be time to imitate our British cousins from long ago and initiate Magna Carta TWO to make up for the way Congress has failed to provide a check on Obama’s abuses. This decision also rendered null and void ALL decisions made by Obama’s unconstitutional appointees!
At least one of the branches of our government was able to rise above petty partisanship. In Congress the Democratic Party gangsters stood by their Godfather Barry and refused to act while the Republican Party gangsters in Congress are far too inept and out of touch to manage any sort of effective action. Further proof that the two-party system dilutes and corrupts the CONSTITUTIONAL checks and balances between the three branches of our government.
The decision also contained an important Separation of Powers element: Continue reading
