SEPTEMBER 2017’s BEST BLOG POSTS

More from Balladeer’s Blog’s Best of 2017 …

MantisNUMBER ONE – With superheroes practically taking over pop culture it should come as no surprise that my look at Marvel Comics’ character Mantis was a huge hit.

For the links to every chapter of my examination of the Celestial Madonna Saga during Mantis’ time with the Avengers – 1973-1975 – click HERE 

corporate fascist Mark Zuckerberg

CORPORATE FASCIST MARK “SKIPPY” ZUCKERBERG

 

 

NUMBER TWO – In second place for September was this look at the way Democrats are trying to use their corporate fascist allies to police everyone.

At all times. Everywhere. With draconian punishments for expressing opinions that Left-Wing Archie Bunkers disagree with.

For DEMOCRATS LOVE CORPORATE FASCISM just click right HERE 

Laura Palmer wrapped in plasticNUMBER THREE – David Lynch’s excellent Twin Peaks returned for 18 more episodes that continued the story from the original 1990-1991 series, the 1992 film Fire Walk With Me and 2014’s The Missing Pieces.

 

As a courtesy for potential fans of Twin Peaks who are put off by the way a lot of people claim it “makes no sense” I gave the most basic look at the horror/ sci fi concepts at play in the show. For TWIN PEAKS IN B-MOVIE TERMS click HERE  

Freedom of expression amnesty internationalNUMBER FOUR – The American Left has come to love censorship as much as the religious right always did.

Past works of art are examined to see if they “offend” the hypersensitive fascists of “the academic world” (LMAO).  

The blog post titled DEMOCRATS HATE ART AND LITERATURE covered that HERE

chancellor manuscript 2NUMBER FIVE – Balladeer’s Blog was examining various espionage novels by Robert Ludlum, the man behind the Jason Bourne books.

I reviewed his very relevant novel The Chancellor Manuscript, which dealt with J Edgar Hoover, the FBI and abuse of intelligence-gathering by BOTH the political right AND political left.

AUGUST 2017’s BEST BLOG POSTS

Balladeer’s Blog continues its look at the Best of 2017 with the most popular blog posts from August.

mascot-a-faceNUMBER ONE – It’s no secret that I’m a non-believer in any of the world’s religions. It’s also no secret that what passes for American Liberalism has become a faith-based belief system as irrational as any other religion.

In this post I looked at the Democrat version of an Afterlife, since they pompously and absurdly pretend they are on THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY? Click HERE 

Islamophobia posterNUMBER TWO – As Muslim Violence Awareness Year continued so did their annual pile-up of atrocities and ever-climbing body counts.

For the MUSLIM FASCIST ATROCITY ROUNDUP: AUGUST 10th click HERE

Mascot with demo and repub headsNUMBER THREE – Transgress with me once again as Balladeer’s Blog examined the faulty premises of so many of the Left-Wing Archie Bunkers of the world.

It’s a blog post that really struck a nerve:

To read WHITE PRIVILEGE, LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES click HERE 

Democrat sloganNUMBER FOUR – The blog post DEMOCRATS, THE SMIRKING JACKASSES OF LIFE took a good look at why so many of us who still lean leftward have grown to despise America’s Democrats and to regret having ever been associated with them.  

For that item click HERE

Democrats don't control meNUMBER FIVE – Democrats – the Party of slavery, Jim Crow, the Ku Klux Klan, the Trail of Tears, the Japanese Internment, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Spoils System, Tammany Hall, the Gulf of Tonkin Lie and so much more – are boiling mad at their ongoing loss of credibility.

JULY 2017’s BEST

Balladeer’s Blog’s Best of 2017 continues!

democrats and poor peopleNUMBER ONE – My two-part look at NEW DEMOCRAT SLOGANS was a comedy hit. This “Party of CEO’s” has come to deserve its reputation for having driven away all of us except pompous snobs and hilariously pretentious asses.

For this look at humorous slogans for this political party which Franklin Roosevelt and John F Kennedy would not even recognize CLICK HERE  

AND FOR PART TWO CLICK HERE 

Incubated GirlNUMBER TWO – One of Balladeer’s Blog’s most popular Ancient Science Fiction posts EVER was this look at a very obscure 1896 work and its fascinating female lead.

Very fascinating.

For my review of THE INCUBATED GIRL click HERE 

Camille PagliaNUMBER THREE – Legendary Camille Paglia was in rare form this year, speaking on behalf of all of us who left the Democrats in disgust in recent years.

In July came CAMILLE PAGLIA BLAMES THE DEMOCRATS FOR DESTROYING JOURNALISM WITH THEIR ANTI-TRUMP HYSTERIA. Click HERE

Berenger Avenging Angel 2NUMBER FOUR – For Frontierado Season this year one of my blog posts dealt with the story-telling possibilities inherent in a neglected aspect of Mormon history.

To read DANITES: GUNSLINGING “KNIGHTS” OF THE OLD WEST just click HERE 

Delia Haskett RawsonNUMBER FIVE – Another western figure got a lot of attention in July, a gunslinging lady who braved Old California on a stage coach route.

JUNE 2017’s BEST

Balladeer’s Blog’s Best of 2017 continues!

Democrat sloganNUMBER ONE – Hatred is in the DNA of the Democrats. One of the worst ways that it manifests itself is the way Democrats are so often the cause of the atrocities they then blame on everyone else. Slavery, the Trail of Tears, Japanese Internment, the Ku Klux Klan, the Spoils System, Tammany Hall, Jim Crow, you name it.

This DEMOCRAT ATROCITY ROUNDUP takes a look at just a few of the outrages that the Party of the Democrats – the American Institution MOST responsible for them – tries to say that THEY are free from guilt over but claims that “the nation as a whole” should bear guilt for forever. CLICK HERE 

Nth Man 2NUMBER TWO – From my Ancient/ Vintage Science Fiction category came this review of an unjustly neglected tale. The Nth Man is a gigantic, Kaiju-sized man with green shell-like skin who does battle with military and political powerhouses in America of the “future” 1930s.

For THE Nth MAN: (1920) – VINTAGE SCIENCE FICTION click HERE  

Mascot with demo and repub headsNUMBER THREE – The pampered white children of privilege who pretend to be “the resistance” (LMAO) against President Donald Trump are a joke. They are the oppressors while trying to pretend they are the oppressed.

For RESISTANCE, INC: THE FAUX REBELS OF THE ANTI-TRUMP HYSTERIA click HERE 

alien covenant 2NUMBER FOUR – Alien: Covenant had been out for awhile by this point and Balladeer’s Blog reviewed it as the comedy that it is.

You mean it’s NOT a comedy?

I beg to differ.

To read ALIEN: COVENANT – YOU’LL LAUGH TIL YOU CRY click HERE

NUMBER FIVE – Finishing off the Top Five from June here is 6-14’s NEVER ACCEPT CENSORSHIP. Click HERE

SONG FROM SCROOGE (1970): THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Before you know it Christmas Carol-A-Thon 2017 will be over so let’s cram in as much as we can before the 25th. Here’s another individual song from one of the many versions of A Christmas Carol that I’ve reviewed over the years. From Scrooge (1970) it’s Thank You Very Much, which SHOULD have been sung by Bob Cratchit but instead goes to the guy from the Schizoid Man episode of The Prisoner.
