mascot new look donkey and elephant headsNapoleon’s famous remark that “History is a set of lies agreed upon” is apparently regarded as fundamental strategy by Democrats. The biggest regret of my life is that I ever belonged to that party of lying demagogues, pompous snobs, cowardly hypocrites and hilariously pretentious asses.

As predicted here – and I know I’m not the only one who did – the Democrats have begun claiming that the ongoing disaster in Venezuela is all the fault of the eeeevill United States. For “sanctions” and/ or any other excuse the left can conjure up out of thin air.    

For decades Democrats have pushed this absurd attitude that if the U.S. has EVER interacted in any way with a country, any country, then we are to blame for anything bad that happens there in perpetuity. (But all good things that happen are in spite of us, they’ll claim.)

#WalkAwayThis is why Democrats continually push to lower the voting age. As those of us who used to believe their lies grow up and mature and begin noticing their tendency to revise history on the fly to meet their political needs of the moment they need young, uninformed people to replace the ones Democrats lose to the maturation process. 

I’m glad I long ago decided to #WALKAWAY from the Democrats to become an Independent voter. Just one of many reasons is the way Democrats pretend that if the U.S. is on friendly terms with a dictatorship then we are complicit in the regime’s oppression, but if we are on unfriendly terms with a dictatorship then Democrats claim that we are to blame for any damage which the high-living dictators’ policies cause to that nation’s economy.

donald-trump-and-flagThe daily saga of the unlikeliest hero of them all continues! As I’ve often pointed out President Donald Trump is America’s first de facto Third Party President since he has to battle the corrupt, bought and paid-for office-holders in both major parties. In addition Trump has helped the working class and the poor in ways that no other president from either party has done in decades. (see below)

President Trump is not a career politician, which will never change. Even if he gets reelected in 2020 there is no changing the fact that he was never a career politician. He is not a “Made Member” of either of the gangs of white-collar criminals called Democrats and Republicans. He did not spend his life working in the cesspool of corruption that masquerades as our government.

Latinos for Trump phone ladyAnd how can you NOT love the way he kept both Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton out of the White House?  

Brian C Joondeph wrote a terrific piece titled Trump is an Army of One. The link is below, but first some excerpts:

The truth was he was never a Democrat or a Republican, at least as they are defined today. Instead he is a problem solver, beholden to no one and not part of the political establishment. His loyalty is only to America and those who voted for him, not to the donor classes …”

Trump supporterHe was not part of either party’s ruling cabal, having never held elective office or political appointment. He did not campaign or arrive at the White House with an entourage of advisors and staff, from previous stints as a governor or senator. Trump was an army of one.”

Fortunately, Trump is a fighter. No other Republican could withstand the daily blistering barrage from the media and both political parties ganging up on him to destroy his presidency.” Continue reading

Balladeer’s Blog’s recent look at neglected swashbuckler novels by Alexandre Dumas of The Three Musketeers fame was popular enough that here’s a bonus novel. FOR THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE REVIEWING THE NOVELS GEORGES AND CAPTAIN PAMPHILE CLICK HERE    

Le Dame de MonsoreauLA DAME DE MONSOREAU (1846) – A collaboration with Auguste Maquet. The title refers to the beautiful and fascinating Countess Diana de Monsoreau and her illicit romance with the novel’s male lead, Louis de Clermont de Bussy d’Amboise. Both characters are real but naturally Dumas and Maquet take the usual poetic license accorded to historical fiction.

Louis is remembered as a larger than life figure in the court of French King Henry III. He was a deadly swordsman who thumbed his nose at many of the King’s courtiers while laughing at jealous husbands and tailor’s bills as he romped his way in and out of countless beds. He could get away with this because he was the favorite of King Henry III’s younger brother, Francois, the Duke of Anjou.

Even Francois’ patronage was good for only so much, since Henry wielded all the true power and considered Francois a potential rival. While fighting on various battlefields and in assorted duels Louis also walked that tightrope at court, where on any given day one miscalculation or one insult taken too far could bring about his ruin.

#WalkAwayWE NEED THIRD PARTIES. Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know that I’m one of the many former Democrats who have chosen to #WALKAWAY from that increasingly deranged and fascistic political party.

illegal immigration democrat vote machineDEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES VOTED LAST WEEK TO ENABLE CONTINUED VOTING BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. This story is being featured all over the place so you can choose whichever outlet you prefer. Typical of Democrat worminess they used to deny that illegal immigrants voted, then when proof kept coming forward that illegals ARE and HAVE BEEN voting in violation of the law they moved on to their next bizarre stand.

democrats fraudulent and illegal votingThat stand: refusing to interfere with localities that OPENLY LET ILLEGALS VOTE. Oh, yes, those Democrat-run localities pretend that they’re only going to let them vote in “local issues.” Uh. Yeah. Right. I’m sure it will be on the “Honor System” since Democrats like to pretend it’s “racist” to enforce any voting laws, which means there will be absolutely no checking to make sure illegals are voting only in local issues (as if that is not violation enough).

With the Democrats in the House voting in favor of letting illegal immigrants vote but failing to contain Ilhan Omar’s hatemongering it was quite a week for the privileged white one-percenter Nancy Pelosi.

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.

(Maybe victims of illegal immigrants need their own #MeToo hashtag)

Bill MaherMany readers have been asking me what I thought of the rancid Bill Maher’s deranged expression of the kind of snobbery that helped elect President Trump. I already addressed it in 2016 with this item from when the rancid Jon Stewart was the face of pretentiousness and pomposity. While the day-long Mardi Gras continues here at Balladeer’s Blog and we move on from breakfast wines to rum-based drinks enjoy this “encore” blog post.

Brown nose ON … Brown nose OFF: Jonathan Stewart – who STILL refuses to donate more to charity –  embodied comedic gutlessness by coordinating with the Obama administration to make sure he never offended them. That’s called being a propagandist and a panderer, not a comedian.

Comedy is at its best when it is irreverent. The more powerful the object of ridicule the richer the laughs. There’s an old saying about a comedian being so supportive of the world’s underdogs that “He’d insult a king to make a beggar laugh.”

American comedians have become such spineless panderers that they’ve lost any real edginess and especially any desire to be on the side of the underdogs. That would be, like, SO not cool, dude! Today American comedians would much rather insult beggars to make kings laugh.

These Court Jesters of the rich and powerful flaunt a deep disdain for the working class and the unfortunate. America’s comic performers of today sneeringly dismiss the working class and the poverty-stricken as “stupid” or “uneducated” the same way bloated rich pig Republicans dismiss the working class and the poverty-stricken as “lazy.” 

Jonathan Stewart older

*** *** *** **  Know what the exact opposite of an irreverant comedian would be? Jonathan Stewart. He took shots at ONLY the safest targets of the moment. Grow a pair and get back to us, worm.


The Jonathan Stewarts, Bill Mahers and Samantha Bees of the world would never be caught dead siding with the “ignorant hicks” who aren’t rich or don’t hold positions in their political party. The poor and the unfortunate are there to be ridiculed for the amusement of the ruling class and for the career advancement of those court jesters.  

Genuine satirical comedy follows the path of MOST resistance, but the current worms who play at comedy would rather side with the rich and powerful against the disadvantaged. These pompous pricks are about as “daring” as a bully ridiculing the nearest fat person or someone missing a limb. And ALL to put smiles on the faces of elitist jackasses.

Jonathan Stewart 3

One percenter Jonathan Stewart always sided with Obama – the most powerful man in the world – against the working class victims of Obama’s policies. What a guy!

Jonathan Stewart was so much of a lackey for the Democratic Party he used to meet regularly in the White House with Obama to make sure his humor was Government  Approved. How courageous! Bill Maher ridiculed the elderly veterans of what Brokaw called “the greatest generation” when their infirm bodies and aged minds hindered them from circumventing the barriers put up at war memorials during the government shutdown in 2013. Oh, if only one of them had fallen down and broken a hip! Such hilarity, right Bill?

And yes, I know, Little Jonny Stewart would sometimes pretend that Obama’s disastrous policies were good for the poor and the working class, yet NEVER had an actual member of the working class on his show. Probably because an actual member of the working class would have pointed out how damaging and heartless Obama’s policies really were.   Continue reading
