REVOLUTIONARY WAR FAQ

Fife and drum picThe Fourth of July is rapidly approaching! Some people get puzzled about the actual Thirteen Original Colonies of America. They know for instance that Daniel Morgan’s Kentucky Rifles were one of the most storied units of the war and saw action from Canada to the American South. Yet, Kentucky is not listed as one of the original colonies.

Similarly they know that Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys were a Vermont unit and that Chillicothe in Ohio was the site of the REAL last battle of the war, yet neither Vermont nor Ohio were original colonies, either. The reason for all that is this: Continue reading

HILLARY: I GET TO MOVE ON, BUT YOU PEASANTS ARE ETERNALLY GUILTY OVER SLAVERY

hillary yelling

   I can put whatever I want behind me! But YOU DAMN PEASANTS can’t! I miss the days when you citizens knew your place and didn’t talk back to your betters! 

Every revelation that comes out about Benghazi makes it clear that Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton and Barack “Tony Ears” Obama lied about a video causing the 2012 Benghazi attack just to spare Barack looking like a jackass over his ludicrous claims that Al Qaeda was “on the ropes.”

Despite all that, Hillary tries to pretend it’s all nothing and that she can just “move on” now. I guess she feels that anyone stupid enough to believe ANYTHING she and/or Barack say isn’t worth caring about. So the Four Dead in Benghazi are to be thrown down the Memory Hole but the Four Dead in Ohio are to be rehashed forever.

A nonexistent reporter asked Hillary if the untold millions of working class white Americans who had absolutely NOTHING to do with the slave trade that her Democratic Party championed can finally “Move On” from it she replied “NEVER! I am one of the Ruling Class! WE are allowed to “move on” from our many,many scandals, crimes and misdeeds, but YOU PEASANTS are to be browbeaten into political submission over things you had nothing to do with FOREVER!”

When that same reporter followed up by pointing out that that didn’t sound at all like that “fairness” that the Democrats forever claim to be about the bloated rich pig replied “That’s different. It’s politically useful for the Party to continue pushing the ridiculous notions of White Privilege and Collective Guilt.”

GAY FORMER LIBERAL BLASTS THE LEFT’S COWARDICE TOWARD MUSLIM FASCISM

Here at Balladeer’s Blog regular readers know the drill: I’m far from a conservative but like so many of us I stopped considering myself a Liberal when I saw how American Liberals adopted their “Islam: Right or Wrong” attitude years ago.

As a break from what I have to say about it here is a video by another former Liberal disgusted with the Democrats’ gutless hypocrisy. They’ll blame videos, they’ll blame guns, but will NEVER blame the blood-soaked religion that is the common factor in these terrorist attacks. Continue reading

MUSLIM ATROCITIES: THE LATEST

muslim crescent

A SYMBOL OF HATRED, SLAVERY, MASS RAPE AND INFANTICIDE.

I consider all religions to be mythology and to be irrational diseases of the mind, but only the most gutless hypocrites try to pretend that Islam is not the most violent and intolerant religion in the world right now. This is Muslim Violence Awareness Year, so here are just a few of the latest atrocities courtesy of that homophobic and misogynistic pack of superstitions.

June 12th – Orlando, FL – A Muslim supporter of Hillary Clinton and Obamastan (Islamic State) killed 49 gay people and injured 53 others at a gay nightclub. Among his stated reasons were Obama’s drone attacks on Muslims around the world. America’s Democratic Party (“The Muslim Fanatic’s Best Enablers!”) chose to pretend this Ramadan massacre was a gun control issue, as if Muslim terrorists have never used bombs or knives or airplanes.  

June 9th – Halgan , Somalia – Al Shabaab, the local affiliate of the Global Muslim Fascist Murder Machine, launched a suicide assault, killing 43 innocent people. I’m guessing Obama blamed the NRA.

June 12th – Darak, Cameroon – Boko Haram, the local affiliate of the Global Muslim Fascist Murder Machine, kidnapped 42 innocent fishermen and killed them. Obama presumably blamed America’s gun culture.

June 21st – Garabulli, Libya – Islamic State (Obamastan) operatives killed 29 innocent people and injured over 30 more by unleashing artillery against them. Obama probably cited this as further “successes” of his disastrous Libyan policy.

June 17th – Kuda, Nigeria – Muslim fascists shot 24 women to death. Bigot-In-Chief Obama probably blamed white Americans from the working class.  Continue reading

FOOLKILLER 16: THE MANDRILL COMES TO TOWN

Foolkiller full face

Foolkiller (Greg Salinger)

Balladeer’s Blog’s “Script Doctoring” of Marvel’s handling of Foolkiller continues with Part Sixteen. 

FOR PART ONE CLICK  HERE 

My alternate treatment of Foolkiller (Greg Salinger) in The Defenders # 90 will deal with the funeral of Hellcat’s (Patsy Walker’s) mother and with Daredevil rejoining the Defenders since Matt Murdock is now part of Nighthawk’s (Kyle Richmond’s) legal defense team. The Mandrill and Fem-Force strike again as part of that mutant villain’s plan to revenge himself upon the Defenders, Daredevil and his own parents: everyone he blames for his setbacks.  Continue reading
