Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog presents some political cartoons from the talented Jim Thompson.
First up is this cartoon commemorating the way Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s underboss in the Biden Crime Family, funnels bribe money to his father by pretending to be “selling his artwork.” Uh. Yeah. Right.
Joe Biden, from a slave-owning family and who EULOGIZED KU KLUX KLANSMAN AND FELLOW DEMOCRAT SENATOR ROBERT BYRD, has been an unmitigated disaster, especially for the suffering working class and the poor.

Joe Biden, accused rapist, proven racist and career criminal who, according to his daughter’s diary took “inappropriate” showers with her when she was a child, got punked once again. Friday the corrupt yet senile Biden was taking pre-screened calls at the White House for Christmas Eve when a courageous individual used the defiant anti-Biden chant “Let’s go Brandon!” on Crooked Joe. (links below)
Biden Regime functionaries and toadies feigned outrage but it was a fun moment for the countless people suffering under Biden’s horrific administration here in the U.S. Joe Biden – who “somehow” became worth $150 million dollars during a lifetime in government office – is callously crushing the working class and the poor with the policies he pursues.
Human beings will always enjoy seeing pompous, thoroughly unfit garbage in high office get ridiculed, so this little demonstration was timeless. Continue reading
Crooked Joe Biden, accused rapist, career criminal and corrupt politician in the pocket of China, was still at just 36% approval in the latest polling. It’s no wonder given Biden’s war on the working class and the poor plus the non-stop failures of his regime.
Christmas Carol-A-Thon 2021 rolls along here at Balladeer’s Blog with this look at a very good comedic rendition of the Dickens classic.
A CHRISTMAS CAROL GOES WRONG (2017) – The players from Great Britain’s Mischief Theater Company strike again in their guise as the Cornley Polytechnic Amateur Dramatic Society. After the absolute disaster they made of their 2016 production of Peter Pan (see Peter Pan Goes Wrong), the Society were banned from the BBC.
Undeterred, the troupe take over a live broadcast of A Christmas Carol starring Derek Jacobi. They do this via an all-out commando raid hilariously carried out through action movie cliches like the kind of wire work Tom Cruise has done in multiple Mission Impossible films.
From there the Society mount their own production with their highly flawed but immensely likable players, highlighted by Chris (Henry Shields), Annie (Nancy Zamit), Robert (Henry Lewis) and others. Naturally, a LOT goes wrong.
The iconic Diana Rigg, like Jacobi, plays herself as the narrator and is the fictional aunt of Society player Sandra, who is portrayed by actress Charlie Russell. Continue reading
“Many a true word is spoken in jest” as the old saying goes, and that becomes ever more valid by the year regarding Balladeer’s Blog’s handy list of Democrat Slogans. These slogans capture what the Democrats have REALLY become, not the glowing image that they have of themselves.
DEMOCRATS: YOU PEASANTS ARE ONLY AS FREE AS THE MOST INTOLERANT DEMOCRAT LETS YOU BE!
DEMOCRATS: NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF SIMPLE-MINDED FASCISTS IN LARGE NUMBERS!
DEMOCRATS: ALL OF OUR OPINIONS SHOULD CARRY THE FORCE OF LAW!
DEMOCRATS: WE OVERUSED THE WORD “RACIST” TO THE POINT OF MEANINGLESSNESS. NOW WE’RE DOING THE SAME WITH “WHITE SUPREMACIST.”
DEMOCRATS: WE ARE THE FASCISTS WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
DEMOCRATS: IF THE COUNTRY IS SPLIT ALMOST 50-50 THAT MEANS THAT ONLY THE PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE WITH US ARE BEING “DIVISIVE” … NEVER US!
DEMOCRATS: JURY VERDICTS SHOULD HAVE TO BE RATIFIED BY OUR RAGING, HOWLING MOBS OF SHALLOW, UNINFORMED AND EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE POLITICAL ROBOTS! Continue reading
The courageous defiance toward senile yet corrupt Joe Biden and his regime continues as “Let’s go Brandon” showed up at the recent World Series game and in the postgame show. Continue reading
Congratulations to whoever came up with this!
With the latest attempt to do justice to Frank Herbert’s sci fi classic Dune hitting U.S. theaters here’s a look at Dune and the Alien film series as analogies for 21st Century America.
Balladeer’s Blog remains the only site on the web that equally criticizes both Democrats and Republicans, depending on which party has been committing greater offenses at the moment.
Reader reaction to my blog post which depicted America and our corrupt political parties as part of the Alien franchise (HERE) was impressive so here is a tongue in cheek look at the U.S. as part of the Dune franchise.
First, my traditional opening to such posts:
“We’re a world of 7 billion people, 10 billion blogs and 20 billion political poses.”
THE FREMEN – These are American VOTERS who heroically endure the harsh, ugly conditions that the hopelessly corrupt and outdated Houses have imposed on the nation.
The bizarre throwback to a feudal culture resulting from the destructive, self-serving policies of those two Houses has become more and more apparent with each passing year. The gap between the haves and have-nots was never clearer than in the past nine months.
Still the Fremen soldier on, trying to eke out a living and preserve what few of their liberties remain to them while striking back at their callous and uncaring oppressors whenever they can. The only hope for the future rests with the Fremen/ Voters, certainly not the would-be aristocrats of the venal Houses. Continue reading
Here at Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog I often hear from overseas readers requesting clarification on some of the obscure in-jokes of America’s political culture. This time around it’s regarding why “Let’s go Brandon!” is the ultimate up yours to corrupt Joe Biden and to his corporate media sycophants.
Several weeks ago “Fuck Joe Biden” became the frequently heard roar of the crowds at college football games and then spread to other events, because, well, it’s no secret that Joe Biden is corrupt, demented, blood soaked and much worse. At a recent NASCAR event, Brandon Brown won the race and as he was being interviewed the stands were roaring with the chant of “Fuck Joe Biden!”
However, corporate media shill Kelli Stavast, scrambling in 1984 fashion to protect Joe Biden as Big Brother, claimed that the crowd was really shouting “Let’s go Brandon!” Not even Biden supporters were stupid enough to believe that, and so things snowballed to the point where “Let’s go Brandon!” became a way of saying “Fuck Joe Biden!” while simultaneously poking at the slavish political bias of the corporate media.
Let’s go Brandon has even been set to music and became a hit on iTunes and elsewhere. Sales of “Let’s go Brandon!” t-shirts and other merchandise have gone through the roof. Online videos expressing the meme have been piling up, like the “exercise” video below, part of the Let’s go Brandon challenge:
And hey … Continue reading
KUNG FAUX (2003) – Created and crafted by Mic Neumann, this half-hour comedy series was basically a hip hop version of old movies and television shows that overdubbed non-comedies with comedic dialogue, music and sound effects. In Kung Faux‘s case it featured re-edited and highly stylized martial arts films from the 1970s overdubbed with contemporary music and a hip hop comedic sensibility.
Though Kung Faux brands this treatment as “dubtitling” as a nod to dubbed and subtitled dialogue, the approach debuted on vintage television shows like Fractured Flickers (1963), in which celebrities would dub improvised comedic dialogue over old silent movies.
The theatrical release What’s Up, Tiger Lily? (1966), Woody Allen’s overdubbing of a Japanese spy movie to make it a battle over an egg salad recipe, is still the best known of these ventures. Not even serials were exempt from such treatment, with my favorite example being Firesign Theater’s production Hot Shorts (1984) featuring items like Sperm Bank Bandits in which the comedy team inserted comical dialogue over old serials like Canadian Mounties vs Atomic Invaders.
