CALM DOWN, PEOPLE, 31 OTHER PRESIDENTIALLY DECLARED EMERGENCIES ARE STILL IN EFFECT

panic-signHello everyone! As always I find it humbling when so many overseas readers ask me for my honest, non-partisan take on our political scene here in America. I will be 100% sincere with this blog post about the ridiculous overreaction to de facto Third Party President Trump declaring a national emergency regarding the flood of illegal immigrants and illegal drugs pouring across our border with Mexico, a virtual narco-state at this point given how the Cartels run wild.

PRESIDENTIALLY DECLARED NATIONAL EMERGENCIES – As always, America’s corporate media and our white-collar criminals called career politicians are needlessly whipping up a frenzy just because it’s Trump – an outsider rocking the boat – who is in office right now. Presidentially declared national emergencies are much less than advertised.

NEARLY SIXTY SUCH NATIONAL EMERGENCIES HAVE BEEN DECLARED SINCE 1976.

THIRTY-ONE OF THOSE DECLARED NATIONAL EMERGENCIES ARE STILL IN EFFECT.

THIRTEEN OF THOSE NATIONAL EMERGENCIES WERE DECLARED BY BARACK OBAMA.

OBVIOUSLY, SINCE VIRTUALLY NOBODY EVEN KNEW ABOUT THOSE NATIONAL EMERGENCY ORDERS STILL BEING IN EFFECT THOSE EMERGENCIES DO NOT MEAN WE ARE INCHES AWAY FROM A DICTATORSHIP.

PRESIDENTIAL LOSERS: PROS AND CONS

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsIn the spirit of Balladeer’s Blog’s irreverent, tongue-in-cheek looks at the pros and cons of U.S. Presidents and Vice Presidents here’s another post for the upcoming Presidents Day three-day weekend. 

It’s my tongue-in-cheek look at the pros and cons of the LOSERS who were left in a defeated heap enroute to the Oval Office. In reverse order back to just before Tilden:

hillary-clinton-haitiHILLARY CLINTON (Lost to President Donald Trump)

Motto: “When the money keeps rolling in (to your fake charity), what’s a girl to do? Skim a little (well, quite a lot, actually) off the top for expenses wouldn’t you?”

Nickname: The Rapist’s Wife/ Crooked Hillary 

Hillary clinton dough nationPro: Her childish refusal to address her own supporters the night Donald Trump utterly humiliated her provided a look at how truly petty, shallow and classless she is. 

Con: She and her fascist followers tried to threaten the members of the Electoral College into casting their votes for her instead of Trump, thereby reaching the absolute lowest and most disgusting level that any American politician has ever sunk to. 

MITT ROMNEY (Lost to Obama)

Motto: “Pushing women back to the Fifties … the EIGHTEEN fifties!”

Nickname: The Mormon Mondale/ Ol’ Sploog Face (tie)

Pro: His even more pathetic running mate Paul Ryan actually made him look good by comparison.  Continue reading

A TERRIFIC BOOK ABOUT HOW THE ELITE BLAME THE REST OF US FOR THE PROBLEMS THEY CREATE

Anand GiridharadasRegular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know that I often write about the way that the callous, comfortable elites love to blame the rest of us for the problems they have created in the world.

The way the corporate media and Democrat “educators” (LMAO) distort history one might think that there was once an age when the poor and the working class ruled the world and caused colonialism, wars and all the other plagues that were really caused by the Powers That Be among the rich and politically connected. The people who STILL run things, in other words.

The elites and techno-fascists of Silicon Valley love to lecture and talk down to the poor and the working class as if those elites had to “overthrow” the rule of the underclasses so they could try to “save” the world from destructive policies implemented by … the classes that have never held any political or economic power. (?) How would that have worked, exactly? Seizing the world they always controlled from the people who never exercised any control over it?   

Anand Giridharadas 2

ANAND “DICE” GIRIDHARADAS

At any rate Anand Giridharadas has released Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing The World. It’s his new book dealing with the way in which wealthy leftists pretend to be saviors while obscuring their role in causing all the problems they loudly rail against. Giridharadas reflects the genuine revolution in thinking that is marking the 21st Century because – like me – he approaches the issues from a left-wing background but grows increasingly critical of the political left’s hypocrisy and abuses.

To quote from some reviews: 

“Former New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can — except ways that threaten the social order and their position atop it. “

“We see how they rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor; how they lavishly reward “thought leaders” who redefine “change” in winner-friendly ways …”

“We hear the limousine confessions of a celebrated foundation boss; witness a former American president hem and haw about his plutocratic benefactors; and attend a cruise-ship conference where entrepreneurs celebrate their own self-interested magnanimity.”

As always, guilt-stricken rich white people who want to think of themselves as “progressives” are shown to be fools.”

“(T)he problem is that affluence begets arrogance, including a we-know-what’s-best attitude where these overprivileged people act as if they’re missionaries and the rest of us are ignorant savages in need of their “enlightened” supervision.”

“This kind of preachy liberalism — folks who imagine themselves to be neo-Platonic archons because their Daddy could afford to send them to Harvard — offends me as an expression of snobbery.” Continue reading

AMERICAN PRESIDENTS EISENHOWER THROUGH TRUMP

Mascot with demo and repub headsThe three-day President’s Day holiday weekend is fast approaching. 

Here’s one of my biggest hits – a tongue-in-cheek look at U.S. Presidents from Eisenhower to Trump filled with insults and pot-shots directed at both Democrats and Republicans.

  

EisenhowerDWIGHT EISENHOWER

Character Type: Well-meaning but befuddled sitcom grandfather.

Military Service: World War One and World War Two

Motto: “FOOORE!” (Remember,  the traditional cry as you’re teeing off in golf? Oh, never mind!)

Nickname: Uncle Milty

Pro: Knew enough to distrust Richard Nixon long before it became the national pasttime. 

Con: Was the first president to pronounce nuclear as “nucular”.

john f kennedyJOHN F KENNEDY

Character Type: Rich playboy who disdained both Liberals and Conservatives and played by his own rules.

Military Service: World War Two

Motto: “Thank God for television!”

Nickname: FDR  

Pro: The man was shrewd enough to distrust both liberals and conservatives equally. I can’t praise that attitude highly enough given our present circumstances. 

Con:  I can’t find out what happened to this guy. Anybody hear anything?  Continue reading

KHALIQ RODRIQUEZ: STILL DEFYING DEMOCRAT FASCISM


Khaliq Rodriquez 2Khaliq Rodriquez, a Martin Luther King Person of Courage, is still LIVING history this month. Like so many other People of Courage I’ve covered here at Balladeer’s Blog Mr Rodriquez has decided to #WALKAWAY from the fascistic Democrats and praise President Trump’s many accomplishments for the poor and the working class of ALL colors.

Urban Intellectuals Matter, as the saying goes, and Khaliq is always in the foreground, courageously pushing back against Democrats who think they own people of color.

Long ago the Democrats exploited the white working class and white poor by paying lip service to them to get their votes, then selling them out.

#WalkAwayThen when the white working class and the white poor saw through the Democrats’ lies they decided to #WALKAWAY. So the Democrats resumed exploiting the black working class and poor by paying lip service to them to get their votes, then selling them out.

Now as more and more people of color see through the Democrats’ lies and decide to #WALKAWAY the Democrats have taken to pandering to illegal immigrants and ONLY to illegal immigrants.

At any rate, celebrate this month by checking out Khaliq Rodriquez’s Twitter feed – where white one percenter Jack Dorsey’s Twitter thugs often try suspending Khaliq for defying the Democrats. If his feed is down, wait a few days and try again.

FOR KHALIQ RODRIQUEZ AT TWITTER CLICK HERE for his opinions like this: 

San Diego wall built – illegal immigration went down 92%

Tuscon wall built – illegal immigration went down 95%

Democrats will stop the wall at all costs. As black Americans leave the plantation they need illegal aliens to replace them. – Khaliq Rodriquez

DEMOCRAT ATROCITY ROUNDUP: NYDIA VELAZQUEZ EDITION

Nydia M Velazquez

DEMOCRAT AND FASCIST DEMAGOGUE NYDIA M VELAZQUEZ

Democrats continue to drive away so many of us who used to belong to that party. The latest vileness came in the form of THREATENING REMARKS MADE TO A YOUNGSTER BY DEMOCRAT CONGRESSWOMAN NYDIA VELAZQUEZ.

That young man of color – C.J. Pearson – tweeted out a remark about AOC during the SOTU address and referred to “the woman sitting next to AOC.” (NOTE: During the SOTU Congressional reps bring guests to sit with them. It’s not like during a regular session when it could be assumed that anyone sitting near AOC would be a fellow member of the House.)

Since Democrats in office increasingly think that they are our rulers rather than our elected representatives, Nydia Velazquez got indignant that CJ Pearson can’t instantly identify all 435 members of the House. She pompously tweeted back:

“I’m not ‘the woman sitting next to her. @AOC and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you’re right to be afraid of us. But you should learn my name.”

Riiight. If a member of the opposition party had tweeted something like that to a young man of color or anyone else it would have been the lead story on every Democrat news outlet and would spark one of those “national conversations” that Democrats simperingly insist we should have all the time. And by the way Pearson made no reference to “being afraid” of anybody. Velazquez may be projecting.

C J Pearson

COURAGEOUS YOUNG MAN OF COLOR CJ PEARSON, WHO OFTEN DEFIES DEMOCRATS

This is an ELECTED DEMOCRAT MEMBER OF CONGRESS, and she’s TELLING A YOUNG MAN OF COLOR THAT HE IS “RIGHT TO BE AFRAID OF US.” What a pompous fascist! Does Velazquez think we live in a Banana Republic? Does she plan on having Democrat goons “disappear” citizens who earn her disfavor?

And who does she think he should be afraid of when she says “us?” All Democrats? All Hispanic-Americans? Once again we see that the Democrats are about non-stop hatred and division. Continue reading
