MOTHER JONES: PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MUCH MORE COMPASSIONATE THAN OBAMA WAS TO STORM VICTIMS

mother-jonesBalladeer’s Blog is on record as despising both of the rival gangs of white collar criminals called Democrats and Republicans. Mother Jones once again did some posthumous communicating with me about our de facto Third Party President Donald Trump, who is squaring off against both those sets of villains like Clint Eastwood in A Fistful of Dollars.

Mother Jones reminded me of how callous the weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama was under similar circumstances. Mother Jones drew my attention to an article I wrote last year highlighting Obama’s callousness toward suffering victims of a natural disaster.

Lynn YaegerIt is below. But first a photo of LYNN YAEGER, the Fashion Fascist who tried ridiculing First Lady Melania Trump ( Mother Jones told me Melania is our greatest First Lady since Jackie Kennedy). This fashion writer (honestly) made fun of Melania for wearing high heels as she entered Air Force One with her husband – United States President Donald Trump – to visit Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

The daffy Trump-hater looked like even more of an idiot when – as anybody with common sense could have predicted – First Lady Melania Trump – WHO SPEAKS MORE LANGUAGES THAN BOTH OBAMAS – exited Air Force One with her husband, United States President Donald Trump, clad in sneakers for the conditions.

Haters are gonna hate, and insane Left-Wing Archie Bunkers are gonna dress like the shallow fashionistas that Jennifer Saunders expertly lampooned on Absolutely Fabulous.

And as promised, here is my post about Obama’s callousness toward victims last year:

BARACK OBAMA: THE MOST CALLOUS MAN ALIVE

obama callousBarack Obama truly is garbage. Not only did this squirrely, wormy little man wait until he was DONE with his golfing vacation before visiting flood-ravaged Louisiana but when the delicate-minded child was pressed a little about his callous attitude toward the human suffering he was ignoring all that time this alleged human being ACTUALLY, REALLY said “I’m out in five months.”

What a scumbag! I know he bubbled and gurgled up from the cesspool of Chicago politics but this is a new low even for him. I guess if there’s a crisis on the week before Little Barry leaves office he’ll just shrug and say “That’s the new president’s worry.” Continue reading

MUSLIM SUPREMACIST ATROCITY ROUNDUP: AUGUST 30th

Islam jokes don't kill peopleSince the cowardly hypocrites called Democrats are determined to overuse the word “supremacist” like they overused the word “racist” I figured I’d use the term “Muslim Supremacist” instead of Muslim Fascist this time around. Call them what you will, you can bet America’s spineless Democrats will remain too terrified to utter a word of criticism about them.  

Here are just A FEW of the latest atrocities from the kind of Muslims that the Democrats who censor Facebook LOVE!

August 25th: Gakara, Cameroon – Muslim Supremacists burned down THIRTY-FIVE homes and killed FIFTEEN innocent people while injuring EIGHT more. But to Facebook the only “offense” is if someone posts a news article about it on their Facebook page. (Since people can block anything they want to block there is NO excuse for Facebook’s obsessive censorship.) 

August 23rd: Nganzi, Nigeria – Muslim Supremacists burned down homes and killed FIFTEEN innocent people while injuring TWELVE more. (Facebook will ban news articles about it.) 

August 25th: Rakhine, Myanmar – Muslim Supremacists launch a raid, killing TWELVE innocent people. (Facebook will ban news articles about it.) 

August 26th: Rakhine, Myanmar – Muslim Supremacists struck again, this time killing SIX innocent people for being Hindus instead of Muslims. (Facebook will ban news articles about it.)

August 21st: Tubigan, Philippines – Abu Sayyaf, the local affiliate of the Global Muslim Supremacist Murder Machine, burned down homes and killed NINE innocent people while injuring SIXTEEN more. (Facebook will ban news articles about it.)   Continue reading

THE ERIKSSON TWINS: REAL-LIFE MYSTERY

Eriksson twinsMost of the tales of supposedly bizarre events floating around the internet usually wind up being exaggerations or outright fabrications. Not so the strange story of the Eriksson Twins, Ursula and Sabine. Their brief spurt of wildly eerie behavior on a British motorway in 2008, the murder of a man who tried to help one of the twins and the many unanswered questions surrounding the case are eerily perplexing. (What WERE they doing with all those cell phones that didn’t belong to them?)

You can ignore the conspiracy shows that express over-the-top explanations and instead enjoy Madness In The Fast Lane, a grounded, rational documentary exploring the enigmatic events:

STILL MORE MOCK TRUMP HEADLINES

panic-signThe emotional cripples who hate President Trump really are hiring PROFESSIONAL HUGGERS to comfort them. I delayed writing about that for the longest time because it sounded like something from the Onion. It IS the truth as it turns out. 

It may be impossible to satirize these irrational haters, but I’m still willing to try, with yet another list of mock headlines.

DEMOCRATS CALL FOR ANTIFA TO BE NAMED THEIR PARTY’S OFFICIAL DEATH SQUADS 

NOT ONE NEW STATE HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE UNION UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP

DEATH BY VIOLENCE WAS UNHEARD OF UNTIL PRESIDENT TRUMP

NEW SUPERDY-DUPERTY POLL SHOWS ONE HUNDRED NINETY-SEVEN PERCENT OF AMERICANS DISAPPROVE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP

COOPER’S BACK TO NORMAL AND WE GOT TO SEE THE AUDREY DANCE (SPOILERS)

Twin peaks the returnSay what you will about Mondays, I don’t know how anyone can feel anything but great today after last night’s developments in Twin Peaks: The Return.

Cooper’s okay, Audrey danced in whatever odd purgatory/ coma/ lodge/ mauve zone she’s in and two of the right characters got killed. On top of that you had the Dougie Tulpa, the Diane Tulpa, Richard’s wild death scene, it was terrific!

twin peaks the return 2I was one of the people who was actually okay last week with Philip Jeffries being reincarnated as a teapot-kinda-thingie because hey – David Bowie’s dead in real life. With that voice actor imitating Bowie pretty well maybe they’ll give us a brief scene of old Bowie footage with this guy dubbing in new dialogue for a Jeffries Tulpa.

Anyway, as all parties converge on the town of Twin Peaks the final two episodes will air back to back next week! Let’s hope there’s not another premature drop in the U.K.    Insert your own coffee joke here and drink a toast to the only 2017 television series with a cast whose median age is about 68. (I’m kidding.)

MANTIS 31: THE FINALE, INCLUDING KANG’s FINAL GAMBIT

FOR PART 1 OF BALLADEER’S BLOG’S EXAMINATION OF MARVEL’S SUPERHEROINE MANTIS CLICK HERE 

Let All Men Bring TogetherGIANT-SIZE AVENGERS Volume 1, Number 4 (May, 1975)  … Let All Men Bring Together 

Avengers Roster: Thor (Donald Blake, MD), Iron Man (Tony Stark), The Scarlet Witch (Wanda Frank), Hawkeye (Clint Barton), The Vision (not applicable), MANTIS (Mantis Brandt) and Moon Dragon (Heather Douglas) 

… LET ALL MEN BRING TOGETHER 

Synopsis: First, an explanation of the title of this final chapter of the Celestial Madonna Saga. You’ll note this concluding installment was featured in Giant-Size Avengers #4, with the Giant-Size issues being the ones published quarterly.

The title to the story in Giant-Size Avengers #3, the previous one, as our heroes fought Kang’s Legion of the Unliving, was What Time Hath Put Asunder …  So, even though three parts of this continuing story came between THAT Giant-Size issue and this one, the combined title is a play on the marriage ceremony’s words “Whom God hath joined together … Let no man put asunder.”

Here, it becomes “What time hath put asunder … Let all men bring together” referring to the Double Wedding in this final chapter as well as the “Timey-Wimey” convolutions the story has taken on its way here. (Especially Immortus’ effort to put right some of the chaos his younger self Kang caused in the space-time continuum.)

Dormammu for Mantis 31We join the Vision where we left him: in the center of the Earth in a mystical cave created as an artificial “womb” for the re-birthing Dormammu. As Uatu the Watcher told the Avengers and Defenders when Dormammu was seemingly destroyed by the Evil Eye of Avalon, Dormammu is a god.

He is a Dark God, but still a god, and the worship accorded him by all the lesser inhabitants of the Dark Dimension (Dormammu’s home universe) would gradually restore him. The Dread Dormammu is not yet back to full strength but he was sufficiently reborn to move from merely controlling the Scarlet Witch to capturing her and the sorceress Agatha Harkness, her tutor.

Meanwhile, at the Pama Temple Garden in Vietnam, MANTIS, Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye and Moon Dragon have learned the answers to many of the mysteries surrounding the Celestial Madonna.

Those answers were provided by Immortus (Kang the Conqueror’s future, reformed self), by the mysterious glowing, shimmering being disguised as an all-green version of the slain Avenger called the Swordsman and by Mantis’ criminal father – Libra, now wearing the robes of the supposedly extinct Priests of Pama.
