DEMOCRAT ATROCITY ROUNDUP: APRIL 23rd

#WalkAwayThe biggest regret of my life is that I used to belong to the increasingly deranged party of the Democrats. I became an Independent voter long ago and I’m glad to see other former Democrats taking to social media with their stories about why they decided to #WALKAWAY.

Mueller fake newsEver since the release of the Mueller Report further debunked the already absurd Russian Collusion and “obstruction” (LMAO) fantasies of the Democrats they have frothed at the mouth and proceeded as if the exact opposite happened. People who still rant and rave about collusion and obstruction are as idiotic as people who claimed Obama was “a Muslim sleeper agent” or say that aliens abduct them on a nightly basis.

Democrat lunacy aside, that Party of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow, Japanese Internment, The Trail of Tears and so much more continues to pile on the abhorrent behavior. Links are below but for just a handful of the latest Democrat atrocities:

*** Democrats have now labeled the police “The Blue Klux Klan.”

*** Democrats now push antisemitism fanatically, led by hatemongers like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

*** Democrats now move to have candidates they don’t like kept off of state ballots.

*** Democrats do that while continuing to fight legal efforts to stop their vote fraud travesty called “vote harvesting.” Continue reading

POLO: U.S. OPEN, ROUND TWO CONCLUDES

Balladeer’s Blog continues its coverage of the world’s OLDEST team sport. Polo was already centuries old when Alexander the Great’s men played it! FOR MY PRIMER ON POLO CLICK HERE  

EquuleusROUND TWO, DAY FIVE: FIRST MATCH – EQUULEUS VS COCA COLA. Equuleus – Official Balladeer’s Blog Nickname: The Constellations – rode into action against Coca Cola: Official Balladeer’s Blog Nickname: The Red Colossus.

I often praise the way both women and men can play on the same team in Polo. Gillian Johnston was part of Coca Cola’s foursome and scored 3 Goals in this Match. 

International Polo ClubIn the First Chukker the Red Colossus dominated on both sides of the ball, notching 4 Goals while limiting the Constellations to just 1. The Second Chukker saw the two teams score 2 Goals each, making the new tally 6-3 with Coca Cola on top.

Equuleus fought back to within 1 in the Third Chukker, putting 3 goals between the Uprights to the 1 mustered by their opponents. The Red Colossus held a mere 7-6 edge come Halftime. Continue reading

ADAM WARLOCK: THE MAGUS – CONCLUSION

Adam WarlockConcluding Balladeer’s Blog’s examination of another old, old, OLD Marvel Comics hit. This one was written AND drawn by Jim Starlin. (The overrated and over-praised Alan Moore only writes, doesn’t draw.) 

FOR PART ONE PLUS A RECAP OF ADAM WARLOCK’S FICTIONAL HISTORY CLICK HERE

Magus 7PART SEVEN (Conclusion)

Warlock #11 (February 1976)

Title: HOW STRANGE MY DESTINY

Synopsis: Resuming where we left off, the Magus (Adam Warlock’s vile future self and the self-proclaimed god worshipped by the galaxy-spanning Universal Church of Truth) has created a teleportational rift leading from the Sacred Palace of the Church to the interior of Thanos’ space station called Sanctuary.

magus on throneThrough that rift the Magus leads General Egeus and the entire army of the Black Knights of the Church, super-powered beings from countless planets never before featured in Marvel Comics up to this point. (This makes them forerunners of the Shi’Ar Imperial Guard over at The Uncanny X-Men.)

ThanosWe readers know from the end of the previous installment that the Magus suspected that Thanos wanted him to attack, since he had dropped Sanctuary‘s defensive shields. However, even if he’s playing into the Mad Titan’s hands, the Magus had no alternative but to attack since his viewscreens showed him that Thanos and Warlock were about to use a Time Probe to try and prevent the Magus from ever coming into being.

In-Betweener 2As the Magus and his Black Knights pour through the teleportational rift the self-proclaimed god orders his knights to kill Thanos, Gamora and Pip the Troll but leave Adam Warlock to him.

The villain intends to finish off Thanos if he can, but most importantly he needs for the battle to prevent Warlock from entering the Time Probe long enough for the In-Betweener to arrive and abduct Adam to his dimension. There, over the course of 5,000 years Warlock will be tortured into becoming the Magus.

As this final chapter opens we are told there is less than one Earth hour left before the In-Betweener arrives. Continue reading
