The Democrats at Politico, the Washington Post and elsewhere have reported on this: “George Nader, a convicted pedophile that special counsel Robert Mueller used in his Russia investigation, was indicted on Tuesday for allegedly concealing millions of dollars in illegal campaign contributions to then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”
“The Justice Department refers only to an unidentified 2016 presidential candidate, but campaign finance records make clear that the candidate was Clinton,” Politico reported.” (More links below.)
“In a statement, the U.S. Department of Justice wrote:
“According to the indictment, from March 2016 through January 2017, Khawaja conspired with Nader to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in campaign contributions, directed to political committees associated with a candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 election. By design, these contributions appeared to be in the names of Khawaja, his wife, and his company. In reality, they allegedly were funded by Nader. Khawaja and Nader allegedly made these contributions in an effort to gain influence with high-level political figures, including the candidate. As Khawaja and Nader arranged these payments, Nader allegedly reported to an official from a foreign government about his efforts to gain influence.” (Note from Balladeer: Yes, a foreign government)
And per Daily Wire, ” … Sean Davis noted in a tweet that Nader was ‘a top Mueller (left) source during the anti-Trump Russia probe – a pedophile and child porn trafficker WHOM MUELLER REFUSED TO ARREST (All caps mine – Balladeer) — was just indicted for running an illegal campaign contribution scheme in 2016 on *Hillary Clinton’s* behalf. https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/california-ceo-and-seven-others-charged-multi-million-dollar-conduit-campaign-contribution … “ Continue reading
Joe Biden’s hilariously bizarre but endlessly entertaining political campaign continues. Nibbling on his wife’s fingers while she was trying to deliver a speech on his behalf, telling pervy stories about little kids rubbing his “hairy legs” around a public swimming pool, claiming he comes from “the black community” and that he went to “an HBCU,” Joe always brings the crazy.
Sometimes it’s not his fault, like when his dentures came loose during one of the televised debates, his grotesquely bloody eye during another debate, Obama preferring to endorse Canada’s Prime Minister while snubbing Joe, etc. But for every time fate makes Joe’s buffoonish nature impossible to ignore there are plenty of other times when he is the author of his own destruction. Well, destruction plagiarized from someone else, anyway.
Biden’s inept coverup of his and his son Hunter’s corruption, the inane “gang member Corn Pop” tall tale, and so much more came to mind when I learned Quid Pro Joe’s newest slogan: “No Malarkey!” Seriously. THAT’S what he and his staff came up with. I guess they feel that slogan is the bee’s knees. Or the cat’s pajamas.
If you’re going to use a pathetic and outdated expression like “No Malarkey” you should at least go all the way and add “Dagnabit!” at the end of it. C’mon, Joe! Commit to the bit!
Will Joe’s opponents for the Democrats’ nomination escalate things? Will they announce new slogans like “No balderdash!”, “No hooey!”, “23 Skidoo” or “I’m what made us wiser than the Kaiser?” Should voters watch out for “Oh, rubbish!” or “Stuff and nonsense!” or a dangerously succinct “Nertz!” This could spiral out of control if they’re not careful. One of them may even resurrect “No horseplay!” in response to Joe’s creepy public pool story and his pervy confession that he loves it when children jump in his lap.
I can’t wait for insider accounts of the Biden campaign so I can read all about the bitter in-fighting over whether or not to use an exclamation point or a more statesmanlike period after Malarkey in that slogan. And did Joe’s advisers warn him that Americans might not be ready for a Malarkey-denier in the White House?
It remains to be seen if Biden’s new zero tolerance policy regarding Malarkey will be the game-changer he feverishly hopes it will be, but in the meantime “No Malarkey” has joined Wendell Wilkie’s “No man is good three times” as my favorite absurd campaign slogan.
Deneen Borelli, one of Balladeer’s Blog’s Martin Luther King People of Courage, is another of the countless African-Americans proving that the old “Left vs Right,” “Democrat vs Republican” paradigm is more and more outdated the further we get into the 21st Century.
Borelli is part of Black Voices for Trump and has been touting the recent news that THREE MORE polls (NPR, Rasmussen and Marist) have shown de facto Third Party President Trump around 34-35% approval among voters of color. (Links below) Other polls have shown that approval at 39% or higher. Astronomical numbers for a political figure who is neither a true Republican nor a true Democrat.
Sharyl Attkisson, the Ida Tarbell of the 21st Century, weighed in with some more clarity in the midst of all the bizarre anti-Trump fascism coming from the Democrats. On social media she posted a reminder that even the Democrats at Politico had run an article about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign colluding with Ukraine against Trump’s presidential campaign.
And for a Politico video (link below) about all this, titled “UKRAINIAN EFFORTS TO SABOTAGE TRUMP BACKFIRE” with a sub-heading “Kiev officials are scrambling to make amends with the president-elect after quietly working to boost Clinton.”
“Please, sir, may I have some more?”
It’s that time of year again! Just a note in the spirit of the holiday season to mention my favorite Thanksgiving Eve movie.
Every Wednesday before Thanksgiving I make a point out of watching the musical Oliver!
I know the musical sentimentalizes several characters that Dickens portrayed in a sinister way in the book (especially Fagan and The Artful Dodger) but the finished product has always seemed very holidayish to me. Continue reading
Here at Independent Voter Site Balladeer’s Blog I’ve made no secret of the fact that I feel neither Bill Clinton nor Donald Trump deserved impeachment. The Democrats’ Kafkaesque distortion of all previous impeachment procedures is alienating Independent Voters, as is their ridiculous reliance on nothing but HEARSAY against de facto Third Party President Donald Trump.
Even though the Democrats’ many media outlets shrilly insist President Trump is doomed (just like they told us during their absurd Russian Collusion fantasy and the Mueller Investigation) the latest Emerson Poll as well as polling information exclusive to the Democrats at Politico and at Vanity Fair show that the all-important Independent Voters (like yours truly) see through the Democrats’ fascist abuses and plan to vote for Trump again anyway.
The Vanity Fair article was even headlined “‘It Is Hard to Read This as Anything but a Warning’: New Polling Suggests Democrats’ Impeachment Push Could Alienate Key Voters.”
The article (link below) read in part “Data exclusive to Vanity Fair shows impeachment could be a losing issue for Democrats hoping to recruit Independents in 2020. ‘Lots of people who don’t like Trump who are still prepared to vote for him,’ says one political science expert” and “Independents are also one of the keys, if not the key, to the 2020 elections.”
Two factors cited by the article: “The first is that, in their view, impeachment distracts from issues they care about. The second factor is the view among Independents that impeachment reflects the agenda of the political establishment and the media.” Also, per Ken Stern, that it’s “a continuation of the partisan bickering and media excess that began even before his inauguration.”
And let’s remember four crucial FACTS:
- We have the Ukrainian call transcript, there’s no discussion of linking aid to any investigation. UNLIKE WHEN JOE BIDEN BRAGGED ABOUT USING THE THREAT OF WITHHOLDING AID TO GET A UKRAINIAN PROSECUTOR FIRED FOR INVESTIGATING HIS SON’S INFLUENCE-PEDDLING.
- The two principals on the call, President Trump and President Zelensky, have both stated there was no linkage of any aid to Ukraine dependent on any investigation. NO MATTER WHAT OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HOLDOVERS CLAIM THEY HEARD OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE CALL.
- The Ukraine government had no idea that aid was being held back pending confirmation of the stable intent -no corruption- within the new Ukrainian administration.
- President Zelensky didn’t announce, didn’t start, and didn’t acknowledge he was going to start any investigation to get the aid released; and it was released without contingencies.
We need Third Parties! Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard once again spoke for so many of us former Democrats during the recent presidential debate when she pointed out why the Democrats have driven so many of us to #WALKAWAY from that increasingly repulsive political party.
Fresh off her trouncing of the execrable Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton, Gabbard pointed out the failings of the entire Democrat Party. Gabbard said during Wednesday night’s primary debate: “Our Democratic Party, unfortunately, is not the party that is of, by and for the people.”
“It is a party that has been and continues to be influenced by the foreign policy establishment in Washington represented by Hillary Clinton and others’ foreign policy, by the military industrial complex and other greedy corporate interests.” Continue reading
