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THE FREMEN – These are American VOTERS who heroically endure the harsh, ugly conditions that the hopelessly corrupt and outdated Houses have imposed on the nation.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
“LOOK AT ME”, Jill Biden was forced to say into the blank, uncomprehending face of her husband, the head of the Biden Regime. Jill was – like so many times before – trying to get the attention of her corrupt, inept and increasingly demented spouse Joe Biden and get him to stop making a public spectacle of himself. (Too late!)
Joe was blithering into a microphone without waiting for the nearby band to stop playing. Next, he foggily waved to no one in particular, cut his non sequitur remark short and waited for further guidance. Biden as Mister Magoo once again.
Joe’s approval rating dropped to 36% in the latest Zogby Poll in reaction to his string of failures, scandals and catastrophes as president. A Rasmussen Poll showed 58% felt that Joe Biden is not mentally or physically capable of being president. Yet this is the piece of garbage who was imposed on us.
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
The recent Rasmussen Poll found that 56% believe the 2020 presidential election was tainted by cheating. (link below) Here at Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog I’ve never made any secret of the fact that the cheating and tampering seems to me to be as obvious – maybe even MORE obvious – than the cheating in the forever-tainted 1876 and year 2000 elections.
This certainly shows that people have learned not to believe the Big Lie that there is not enough evidence regarding cheat-by-mail, the sudden halt to vote counting in certain states and many other irregularities like Democrats forbidding Election Observers to “observe” their counting process. Continue reading
Here at Independent Voter Site Balladeer’s Blog I make no bones about the fact that I’d be happy to see America’s rival gangs of white-collar criminals – the Democrat and Republican Parties – splinter into multiple smaller parties. I don’t support either political party so my opinions are not based on helping either of them. I repeat that every so often for the benefit of new readers.
JOE BIDEN, OWNED BY THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT, ENDS AMERICA’S ENERGY INDEPENDENCE TO HELP MAKE US DEPENDENT ON CHINA.
THE VILE, ORWELLIAN BIDEN REGIME. An excellent piece about the non-stop abuses by the senile yet corrupt Joe Biden and the Biden Crime Family. Their thuggish underlings are also covered.
CHINA CONTINUES TO GET ITS MONEY’S WORTH OUT OF JOE BIDEN. This time on drones.
STATE SCHOOL BOARD ASSOCIATIONS BLAST BIDEN FOR SICCING HIS POLITICIZED DOJ ON PARENTS.
BIDEN REGIME SENDING FOREIGN AID TO THE TALIBAN. Hey, it’s less money that China will need to spend to keep their Taliban allies afloat. Crooked Joe Biden lets no opportunity to help his owners go by.
RIGGED: FEMALE ROLE MODEL MOLLIE HEMINGWAY EXPOSES THE MANY 2020 ELECTION SCANDALS IN GEORGIA. Along with the wrongdoing exposed in Arizona, Michigan and elsewhere, this further cements the way 2020 joins the 1876 and year 2000 elections in corruption. Yes, America has had three tainted presidential elections in which the likely loser went to the White House. Grow up and deal with it.
BIDEN REGIME ARRANGES A HUGE FEDERAL “LOAN” FOR THE ART GALLERY REPPING HUNTER BIDEN’S “ARTWORK.” You remember, the “sales” of that artwork allow Hunter to funnel bribe money to Joe Biden. Continue reading
I love exploring the mythology behind the world’s various belief systems.
America’s Democrats have regressed into a faith-based belief system that’s every bit as irrational as any other religion, but since Democrats – or “Democrat Fundamentalists” – are such pompous, hypocritical and close-minded fools it’s A LOT of fun to describe their myths as sarcastically as possible.
THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY – The Democrat Party’s version of an afterlife. Narcissistic Democrats strive to live their lives in such a way that people every bit as pretentious and snobbish as they are will sit around in the future sipping wine and pompously expressing approval of the worldview and political opinions that today’s Democrat Fundamentalists held while alive.
This notion of an afterlife is every bit as flawed and fantastic as any other religion’s tales about what happens after human beings die. No one alive today knows how the people of the future will feel about any of us or about our worldview.
If anything history has shown that people – ESPECIALLY the self-congratulatory asses called Democrats – take great delight in loudly and repeatedly condemning people of the past for (GASP) having opinions that differ from their own. It takes no courage and little effort to put on an air of moral superiority toward long-dead human beings.
That being said it’s more likely that American Democrats of the future will look down on even the most self-consciously “progressive” Puritans of today as hopelessly misguided or simply ignorant.
Those future Democrat Fundamentalists very well may just sit around sipping wine and reassuring each other that they are morally superior to every Democrat of this era for not having THE EXACT SAME opinions as they do regarding race, gender, etc. Exactly like pompous Democrat Fundamentalists of today do with people of the past.
Claiming to be on “the right side of history” represents the same flawed thinking process as being convinced that you have God on your side. EVERYBODY tends to feel that way.
The obsessive conformity, status-anxiety and insecurities of Democrats prevent them from questioning their faith and thereby realizing that their own condemnation of figures from long ago is every bit as much of a shallow, meaningless pose as the attitude that may be shown by Democrat Fundamentalists of the future.

As senile yet corrupt Joe Biden’s owners in the Chinese government assume possession of Bagram and other former American bases in Afghanistan, here at home the doddering demagogue continues to divide the nation while using the apparatus of government to try silencing dissent. Meanwhile the accused rapist’s Underboss Hunter Biden is still funneling bribe money to the Biden Crime Family via six-figure “sales of his artwork.” (LMAO)
JOE BIDEN, INCOHERENT, INARTICULATE AND ILLEGITIMATE AS EVER, JUSTIFIES SICCING THE DEMOCRATS’ FASCIST MOBS ON SENATOR KYRSTEN SINEMA FOR DARING TO DISOBEY HIM. The authoritarian scumbag actually justified mob harassment as “part of the process.” More HERE.
CREEPY, SLEEPY JOE’S SON AND UNDERBOSS HUNTER BIDEN STILL STALLING REGARDING HUNTER DIVESTING FROM CHINESE FINANCIAL FIRM. It can’t be stated often enough – Joe Biden and his Crime Family are apparently owned by China.
MICHIGAN’S DEMOCRAT GOVERNOR WHITMER VETOES ELECTION INTEGRITY MEASURES THAT WOULD PREVENT RECURRENCES OF THE WIDESPREAD “CHEAT BY MAIL” AND SIMILAR 2020 ELECTION SCAMS. And remember when Whitmer was pushing her Big Lie that Trump was involved in a plot to kidnap her? Is Whitmer all there?
BRAZEN ANTI-TRUMP LIES CALLED OUT IN STEPHANIE GRISHAM’S NEW BOOK. She’s being called out by Steve Scalise, victim of Democrat fascist violence-mongering.
MORE AND MORE ANTI-BIDEN CHANTS RINGING OUT LOUD AND STRONG ACROSS THE NATION. Despite the demented dolt’s ongoing attempts to suppress them. More HERE from New York. And more HERE. For Michigan HERE.
POLL: SIXTY-FOUR PERCENT FEEL BIDEN HAS DIVIDED THE COUNTRY MORE THAN IT WAS A YEAR AGO. Plus, remember the Quinnipiac poll showing only 42% thought the Biden Regime was competent? I wonder how low that figure has become since then?
JOE BIDEN’S POLITICIZED DEMOCRAT PAC CALLED THE DOJ BEING UNLEASHED ON PARENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. Joe Biden is totalitarian trash. Is he hoping to provoke a show of defiance that he can once again falsely label an “insurrection?”
427,000 PARENTS RESPOND TO THE BIDEN REGIME’S ATTEMPT TO LABEL THEM “DOMESTIC TERRORISTS” FOR SPEAKING OUT AT SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS. More HERE. And by the way, most school board meetings REQUIRE I.D. AND PROOF OF RESIDENCE to speak at. In other words school board meetings are more securely run than America’s fraud-infected electoral process. Continue reading
Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog as always comes to you from the corporate fascist state of the U.S. We’re that surreal realm where Joe Biden’s entrance into a room should be announced by the playing of The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down instead of Hail to the Chief. “C’mon, man” listen for yourself if it’s been awhile.
Needless to say, Biden’s departures, where he flees the room because he’s not allowed to answer questions that further reveal how mentally unsound he is, would then consist of propagandist Jen Psaki saying “Th-th-th-th-that’s ALL, folks!”
Nah, all of that is too dignified for the Biden Regime considering its countless crimes against humanity. So let’s look at the latest from senile yet corrupt Joe Biden and his political party which combines the worst elements of fascism and organized crime (office-holding Republicans are irrelevant trash and do nothing but chase money):
DEMOCRAT FASCIST MOBS HARRASS EVEN THEIR OWN SENATORS FOR NOT BEING FASCIST ENOUGH. Also HERE. And HERE. But give Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema credit -even though the mob harrassed her in the ladies room RIGHT OUTSIDE HER BATHROOM STALL she did NOT pull an AOC and pretend she felt “in danger of being assaulted” like the repulsive Ocasio-Cortez did earlier this year.
MORE CALLS FOR BIDEN TO RESIGN.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE, ANTI-BIDEN CHANTS CONTINUE TO RING OUT AT COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMES AROUND THE COUNTRY.
THE DEMOCRATS AT FACEBOOK CONTINUE CENSORING POLITICAL CANDIDATES IN OTHER COUNTRIES, TOO. Bloated rich pigs of social media continue to decide what political candidates around the world should be allowed to say.
BIDEN REGIME STILL PUSHING OLD, DISPROVEN LIES. What good does such partisan dishonesty do for anyone?
BIDEN STOPPED FROM ANSWERING QUESTIONS EVEN FROM FELLOW DEMOCRATS DURING HIS VISIT TO CAPITOL HILL. I guess there have been too many incidents of Biden showing how much of a blithering idiot he is. Continue reading
WE NEED ALTERNATE PARTIES! Recently Joe Biden, the corrupt establishment hack residing in the White House, actually sealed one of his meaningless promises by saying “I give you my word as a Biden.” Let’s take a look at what Creepy Sleepy Joe’s “word as a Biden” is worth. It will help make Biden getting booed at the Congressional baseball game even funnier.
*** JOE BIDEN COMES FROM A SLAVE-OWNING FAMILY.
*** JOE BIDEN EULOGIZED AN OFFICIAL IN THE KU KLUX KLAN, HIS FELLOW DEMOCRAT SENATOR ROBERT BYRD.
*** JOE BIDEN REPRESENTS EVERY SINGLE POLICY WHICH THE WORLD HATED AMERICA FOR OVER THE PAST FIVE DECADES.
*** JOE BIDEN HAS BEEN CAUGHT IN COUNTLESS LIES OVER THE YEARS, INCLUDING MANY THAT ARE DELUSIONALLY SELF-AGGRANDIZING.
*** JOE BIDEN DEVIATED FROM THE CAREFUL AFGHANISTAN WITHDRAWAL PLANS OF HIS PREDECESSOR AND OUR NATO ALLIES, THEREBY UNLEASHING A BLOOD BATH AND A HOSTAGE SITUATION WHICH HE CONTINUES TO LIE ABOUT.
*** JOE BIDEN IS AN ACCUSED RAPIST AND THE WHOLE “C’MON, MAN” MEME ABOUT BIDEN CAME FROM THE WORDS HIS ALLEGED RAPE VICTIM SAID HE USED – “C’MON, MAN, I HEARD YOU LIKED ME.” Believe All Women.
*** JOE RUNS WHAT IS BASICALLY “THE BIDEN CRIME FAMILY” WITH HIS SON HUNTER BIDEN AS THE VIRTUAL UNDERBOSS FUNNELING BRIBE MONEY TO “THE BIG GUY” VIA PHONY SALES OF HIS “ARTWORK.”
*** JOE BIDEN IS A NOTED RACIST (LIKE HIS SON HUNTER) AND IS KNOWN FOR HIS HARSH CRIME LEGISLA-TION WHICH DISPROPORTIONATELY DAMAGED PEOPLE OF COLOR. (And remember Joe’s remarks like “If you don’t vote for me, then you ain’t black.”)
*** JOE BIDEN CANNOT EXPLAIN HOW HE BECAME WORTH OVER 150 MILLION DOLLARS ON A SENATOR’S PAY FOR DECADES. Joe’s corruption scandals might give reasonable people an idea, though. Continue reading
Balladeer’s Blog continues its examination of the many facets of Fool Killer lore. FOR PART ONE, INCLUDING THE HISTORICAL CONTEXT IN THE 1850s, CLICK HERE
PART 59 – Some of the Fool Killer’s targets in the September of 1912 edition of James Larkin Pearson’s publication:
*** Child labor, which the U.S. Supreme Court kept upholding in yet another of its series of disgraceful sagas. These attacks were noble, but it has to be said that Pearson’s Fool Killer came nowhere close to Klarenc Wade Mak’s version of the folk figure when it came to attacking the atrocity of child labor. (In America in 1912 over two million children were working in mines, mills and factories.)
*** People who opposed nationwide voting rights for women.
*** An unnamed High Society family which held an invitation-only meal for themselves and ninety-nine other bloated rich pigs. The ASS-ociated Press (As Pearson and his Fool Killer always called the AP) breathlessly reported on it the same way the media of today gives groveling coverage to such monumentally vain celebrity affairs.
The meal cost ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS in 1912, the equivalent of $2,775,000.00 here in 2021. The Fool Killer pointed out how many meals the $100,000.00 could have bought for the starving poor. I’m a bit torn, though, because at least back then bloated rich pigs weren’t constantly talking down to the rest of us about their “causes” while wasting that much money. Hundreds of butterflies and birds were released into the air as part of the festivities.
