PETER SCHWEIZER’S LATEST BOOK ON POLITICAL CORRUPTION MAKES THE TOP FOUR OF ALL TIME LIST

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsPeter Schweizer’s 2018 non-fiction book regarding the way that the rival gangs of white-collar criminals called Democrats and Republicans have raised graft and illegality to new levels has been named the Fourth Best Book of All Time at Exposing Political Corruption. That’s from BookAuthority.com.

Secret EmpiresThe book is titled SECRET EMPIRES: HOW THE AMERICAN POLITICAL CLASS HIDES CORRUPTION AND ENRICHES FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Schweizer pulls no punches and – as Balladeer’s Blog loves to see – details corruption by BOTH the Democrats and Republicans. Have I mentioned lately that we need Third Parties? Yeah, I thought I had.   

Joe Biden’s notoriously crooked family is examined in great detail, not just from his involvement in the corrupt and scandal-ridden Obama Administration but from his own brand of (characteristically) awkward and ham-fisted influence-peddling.

Mitch McConnell (R), China, gets blistered as well over his apparent presence in the pockets of Big Money from overseas. Jared Kushner, the Fredo Corleone of the Trump Administration, is also exposed as the would-be graft-grabber he has long seemed to be.

Democrat and Republican office-holders are just part of the story as Schweizer also looks at bloated rich pig “political donors” like George Soros, the Koch Brothers, Tom Steyer and others who own America’s bought and paid-for office-holders.

LOVIN’ SPOONFUL: POW!

Give Them A Shoutout Before They’re Dead strikes again here at Balladeer’s Blog. It’s Pow, that silly but catchy song that served as the theme song for Woody Allen’s movie What’s Up, Tiger Lily? (Not to be confused with What’s New, Pussycat? but it often is for some reason.)

ANTI-TRUMP REPORTER MICHAEL TRACEY TRASHES HIS COLLEAGUES’ SHODDY AND PATHETIC “RUSSIAN COLLUSION” FANTASY

masc chair and bottleMichael Tracey, originally one of the Young Turks and still a very outspoken anti-Trump reporter, has shown some of the integrity his colleagues lack by calling out their irrational and childish refusal to let go of the discredited and debunked Russian Collusion fantasy.

Tracey skillfully points out that no matter how many times it is proven false, the Russian Collusion conspiracy theory is bitterly clung to by Democrats and their media outlets. Ironically, Tracey points out how this shrill cult does nothing but help President Trump by making media critics look like hopelessly biased partisans. (Which they are, of course.)

Unafraid to name names and to post screen-captures of some of the loonier anti-Trump lies spread by his colleagues in the Democrats’ media, Tracey’s long threads documenting the dishonesty and delusion of alleged “reporters” are great. A link is below, but first some excerpts:

First off, quoting Matt Wolking about the lies of bug-eyed Democrat Adam Schiff:

Adam Schiff eyesAdam Schiff
-Lied about having evidence of collusion
-Leaked false info from confidential hearings
-Pushed partisan memo with false claims
-Met secretly with Michael Cohen to shape his testimony
-Met secretly with FusionGPS Glenn Simpson
-Sought dirt on Trump from foreign actors

A Michael Tracey tweet calling out EmptyWheel, an alleged “reporter” who claimed to have proof of collusion:

Hey @emptywheel, whatever happened to this bombshell evidence of collusion that you claimed to personally possess? Just wanted to check in on that. 

Another Tracey tweet:

Throughout this ordeal, it’s been truly disturbing to watch otherwise intelligent people lapse into conspiratorial lunacy. After Mueller said no collusion, you’d think they would at least begin to self-reflect and change their behavior. Nope. They’re just getting worse Continue reading

TRUMP’S REBEL ALLIANCE GOES ON THE ATTACK: CLARICE FELDMAN’S BRILLIANT PIECE

rogue-won-2nd-picDe facto Third Party President Donald Trump continues to confound the two gangs of white-collar criminals called Democrats and Republicans. This unlikeliest hero of them all has helped the working class and poor of all colors despite the overwhelming odds against him.

Recently even the Democrat outlet The New York Times was forced to admit to the size of the tax cuts President Trump brought to the middle class. And the Democrats’ Illegal Immigrant Colonies that call themselves “Sanctuary Cities” (How Orwellian) showed their hypocrisy. They like enough illegal immigrants on hand for voter fraud (“vote harvesting”) purposes but beyond that Democrats raged at the thought of the recent flood of illegal immigrants actually being brought into their political fiefdoms so that Democrats can experience the suffering that border cities endure from illegal immigration. 

At any rate courageous Clarice Feldman, a strong woman and a positive female role model for an entire generation (I know, right?) wrote a terrific piece titled Trump’s Rebel Alliance Attacks The Left’s Death Star. Feldman wrote and also quoted from other sources. The link is below, but first some excerpts: 

Trump on Offense“… this week the President and the rebel alliance cracked through the Democrats’ Death Star of lies , deceit, and unpunished illegalities.” 

“It was fun to watch, and I think it’s just begun.”

” Juliette Akinyi Ochieng – Conservatives who are black have been speaking out for a long time. But the House Republicans finally invited one — Candace Owens, a fine speaker and advocate for conservatism — and, thereby, provided a spotlight. That House Democrats made fools of themselves was mere icing. And it was sweet. We should all rejoice in this.” … “The video of her (Candace’s) feat on C-Span received more hits than any other Twitter/CSpan video.” 

Maxine Waters“Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand

This could be termed a double-header act.

Maxine Waters, Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, grilled bank officials on the student loan program, forgetting that a decade ago Obama nationalized the program, something she had twice voted for.

And if that doesn’t give you confidence in our elected elites, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, confused tactical nuclear weapons with tactile ones.”

MUSLIM BOSTON MARATHON MASSACRE: SIX YEARS LATER

CAIRBREAKING NEWS: Muslim fanatics are STILL the ones behind the Boston Marathon Massacre, despite the way the media tried to blame it on Tea Party members.

Yes it was six years ago that the world got another reminder about the blood-soaked, homophobic and misogynistic elements of Islam when the Tsarnaev brothers set off explosives at the Boston Marathon and seemed proud of it.

As if the attack itself wasn’t repulsive enough the American media made it even worse by once again showing their ugly biases.

Remember how they spent a few days implying that since the attack happened on Tax Day it must have been Tea Party members (the favorite bogeymen of the American left) who set off the explosives?

When the culprits turned out to be Muslims those same outlets looked even more foolish than they usually do. Yes, whiny Liberals, I know Fox News Channel and talk radio show conservative bias but all the other news outlets show liberal bias that is at least as blatant. Grow up and deal with it already.

As I pointed out years ago after the attacks were revealed to be Islamic in nature and not tax-related:

Boston marathon massacre 2

I’d like to offer my condolences to America’s Liberals, who were salivating with the desperate hope that the massacre at the Boston Marathon could be blamed on the Conservatives they hate with such irrational fervor. Democratic Party stations like NPR, CNN and others which are the Liberal versions of Fox News Channel and talk radio were lovingly dwelling on the April 15th date (Tax Day), practically orgasming at the thought that Tea Party activists might have chosen that day to become as violent as Liberals pretend they are.  Continue reading

BIGOTED DEMOCRAT TARGETS HISPANIC AMERICAN WOMAN FOR SUPPORTING TRUMP

Paloma for TrumpIt’s no secret that Democrats have become the new Nazis, despite their tendency to project their own fascist feelings onto the people who courageously oppose them. Just one of the latest examples involved a bigoted Democrat attack on Paloma Zuniga at a Post Office in Chula Vista.

Luckily the heroic Ms Zuniga recorded the hate-filled assault on her. Continue reading
