MUELLER DELIVERS HIS NOTHING BURGER

Robert Mueller surrendersThe proverbial wailing and gnashing of teeth on the part of those anti-Trump fascists who actually believed the Russian Collusion fantasy has been hilarious! Yesterday and today have provided memes aplenty from the comedy gold produced by the slobbering psychopaths who were suckered in by accused suborner of perjury Robert Mueller.

“Murky” Mueller and his Funky Bunch of Hillary donors pursued endless process crimes to try to get their targets to conjure up anything they could use to promote the absurd Russian Collusion fairy-tale. Even for an American prosecutor Mueller is outrageously sleazy and corrupt. (Look into his dubious behavior during the Whitey Bulger business.)

FLASHMAN NOVELS: TENTH PLACE

Flashman closeupFor Balladeer’s Blog’s Number One Harry Flashman Novel click HERE . For background info on George MacDonald Fraser’s infamous anti-hero Harry Paget Flashman you can also click that link. 

Royal Flash main10. ROYAL FLASH (1970)

Time Period: The Revolutions of 1848 (1847-1848)

Favorite Book Blurbs: “Just when the Revolutions of 1848 are sweeping across Europe … Just when the masses are rising up against their ages-old masters … Just when no throne seems safe from the emerging wave of egalitarianism … Yes, just when being a monarch is synonymous with being a marked man, guess who should find himself forced into masquerading as a certain pompous, blue-blooded boor? Who else but the incomparable Harry Flashman!” 

Royal Flash 3“Horse riding, sword fighting, brawling, drinking and humping, Harry is always in the thick of 19th Century history! This time the lusty scoundrel is tangled up in political intrigues involving Otto Von Bismarck, Lola Montez, Karl Marx and the Schleswig-Holstein Question. One misstep on Flashman’s part could alter the course of European history!”

NOTE: Please don’t judge this novel based on the god-awful movie adaptation from 1975. For the role of Harry Flashman you need a handsome, charming British version of James Garner. Alan Bates would have made a much better Flashman than Malcolm McDowell in my opinion, but he was instead cast as Rudi Von Starnberg (I could picture the 1975 Timothy Dalton as Rudi to Bates’ Flashman.)  

And yes, I know George MacDonald Fraser worked on the screenplay but in my view Director Richard Lester overdid the goofiness level on the movie, just like he did with Superman III. Instead of shooting for Anthony Valentine’s Raffles series crossed with Tom Jones and Barry Lyndon, Lester treated this like a British Don Knotts movie. Or, God forbid, Jerry Lewis.

Lola MontezSynopsis: Harry Flashman, fleeing a police raid on a gambling establishment he was frequenting, winds up meeting the legendary real-life adventuress Lola Montez, one of the few women to tug at Flashman’s heart, not just his man-parts. During their romantic nine-day wonder of wild love-making and tempestuous quarreling, Harry also winds up clashing with future statesman Otto Von Bismarck in clubrooms, on the hunt and on the riding range.

Following a bitter breakup with the lovely Lola as well as outdoing Bismarck on the social circuit, Flashman little dreams that the vengeful duo will team up and use him as a sacrificial pawn in political intrigues. When Lola uses her overwhelming beauty and dazzling personality to wrap King Ludwig of Bavaria around her little finger (as historically DID happen) she summons Harry to Munich, supposedly to bury the hatchet and join her stud-line of lovers on the side.   Continue reading

FACULTY LOUNGE FASCIST ROUNDUP: MARCH 20th

Education indoctrination conveyor beltEver wonder where people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez get the irrational gibberish they spout? Thank a teacher! (And remember, AOC has a degree from Boston University … a degree in economics. LMAO) Here’s another look at the way Democrats have distorted the educational system into a one-party practice in bias and irrational thought.

education limits your imaginationProfessor Sam Abrams at Sarah Lawrence College is accused of a Thought Crime because he spoke out in support of ideological diversity. DOZENS of Democrats in the faculty joined with students in demanding that Abrams be fired for this modest suggestion. (Hey, Democrats are such criminals they consider getting people fired to be “making their bones.”)

On top of that those faculty Democrats and the brainless Ocasio-Cortezes in training issued additional demands (don’t be shocked). Among those demands:

*** The racist demand that “students of color” should never be taught history by white professors.

*** The very revealing demand that students have unlimited access to therapy sessions. (Pretending to be college students is apparently very traumatic.)

*** The imbecilic demand for free laundry detergent and free fabric softener. (I’m not joking.)

And much much more! CLICK HERE and HERE Continue reading

#BLEXIT CONTINUES: ANOTHER BLACK TRUMP SUPPORTER PROUDLY SPEAKS HIS MIND

Trump and black support#BLEXIT is a kindred movement to #WALKAWAY and is about the way Urban Intellectuals Matter. #BLEXIT and #BLACKLIVESMAGA center around black people who add their own “voices” (to use one of the Democrats’ most nauseating clichés to tweak them) to an ongoing national discussion.

That discussion is about the intolerant way Democrats treat black people like they MUST obey them and MUST conform to the political opinions that privileged white Democrats have chosen for them.

This video features another Martin Luther King Person of Courage openly expressing his support for President Trump. Continue reading

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CRIMES TALLY: MARCH 8th – 14th

pelosi haggardWHITE, PRIVILEGED ONE-PERCENTER DEMOCRAT NANCY PELOSI AND EVERY OTHER MEMBER OF CONGRESS WHO HINDERS BORDER SECURITY IS AN ACCOMPLICE TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE CRIMES. YES, HYPOCRITES, PRETEND YOU CARE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN NEW ZEALAND WHILE IGNORING ATROCITIES PERPETRATED HERE BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

Kelli BallardJournalist and strong female role model Kelli Ballard courageously continues to compile as comprehensive as possible a breakdown of the additional crimes committed by people in the country illegally.

The victims of illegal immigrant crimes and the loved ones of those victims deserve at least as much care and compassion as the corporate media and the Democrats heap upon every criminal alien who commits murders and rapes.
