BIDEN CRIME FAMILY CORRUPTION EXPOSURE CENSORED BY DEMOCRAT TECHNO-FASCISTS

Biden crouchingThe Robber Baron Democrats of Silicon Valley and Social Media continue to abuse their power with their ongoing interference in the 2020 presidential election. Influential people don’t want you to hear about Joe Biden’s meetings with his son’s alleged co-conspirators. Social Media outlets which allow the spread of idiotic conspiracy theories claiming Trump can be tied to kidnapping plots suddenly act like they have standards when it comes to verifiable exposes about the Joe Biden Crime Family.

Senile Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s alleged Influence-Peddling schemes are getting more and more exposure in the news lately so Jack Dorsey at Twitter joined with Democrats at Facebook and elsewhere to smother AND IN SOME CASES SUSPEND accounts trying to share news stories about the ongoing Biden scandals.

Biden blackmailing UkraineThe technofascists do not deserve Section 230 protection as they have proven over and over and over again that they abuse their power to shut out information and opinions that don’t align with the views of privileged one percenters like Jack Dorsey. Even though Dorsey has admitted it was “unacceptable” to censor the reports about the Biden-Burisma corruption scandals, too much damage has already been done.

Here’s Balladeer’s Blog’s reminder from earlier this year about how the modern-day Robber Barons like Dorsey and his ilk are even worse than the 19th Century Robber Barons. It was titled:

PUCK: ROBBER BARONS THEN AND SILICON VALLEY ROBBER BARONS NOW

TECHNOFASCISTS LIKE JACK DORSEY AT TWITTER ARE GARBAGE.

puck cartoon robber barons tying up uncle samPuck magazine (1871-1918), the well-known political humor magazine, was at its height under original founder and creative director cartoonist Joseph Keppler. Here is a February 23rd, 1881 Keppler political cartoon depicting Jay Gould, the telegraph monopolist, and Cornelius Vanderbilt the railroad baron.

The point of the cartoon is the way those two Robber Barons – allied with like-minded newspaper tycoons (whose newspapers’ names are on the bonds around Uncle Sam) – abused their wealth and political influence to bind the United States (represented here by Uncle Sam) to their will.

Joseph Keppler was outraged at the power so unethically wielded by such figures to cloak themselves in righteous, philanthropic public images while in reality they – in Keppler’s words – clutched “the United States and all its institutions by the throat.”

Creepy LineThis is similar to the way the Silicon Valley and Social Media Robber Barons of today cloak themselves in “socially conscious” public images while in reality clutching the United States and all its institutions by the throat. Continue reading

THE RED GNOME: HALLOWEEN SEASON CONTINUES

Another neglected American horror legend from Balladeer’s Blog to help celebrate Halloween Month.

THE RED GNOME

Red GnomeThis red-hued hobgoblin has plagued Detroit for over 300 years. The Red Gnome was one of the supernatural entities created by the Native American deity Glooskap to protect his people. When European  settlers began to populate the area the figure did what he could to protect the native inhabitants but when that proved futile he turned his attention exclusively to tormenting the newcomers. 

The Red Gnome was short in stature and often mistaken for a child when glimpsed from behind. The hobgoblin has rotten teeth and breath that can kill if the creature so chooses. Anyone tricked into kissing the Red Gnome is said to die immediately. In addition this ageless being has ruby-red eyes that can shoot fiery rays. 

In 1701 Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac (yes, as in THAT Cadillac) battled the Red Gnome, which plagued him until he had lost all his fortune. The hobgoblin’s fiery eye-beams would cause frozen ice on the Detroit River to melt under skaters or racers, plunging them to their deaths in the icy waters below. In warmer weather he would cause small boats to capsize and then drown the passengers.  Continue reading

DEMOCRAT MAYOR FORCES OUT POLICE CHIEF BECAUSE OF HIS WIFE’S FACEBOOK POST SAYING SHE’S VOTING FOR TRUMP

Jarrad BerkihiserPer Lancaster’s Fraternal Order of Police the Lancaster Police Chief Jarrad Berkihiser (left) was forced to resign following his wife’s Facebook post stating she was voting for Trump. (Link below)

John Fiorill said the Democrat “Mayor Danene Sorace told Chief Berkihiser to resign because his wife posted comments on Facebook saying she planned to vote for President Trump because of his support for law enforcement.”

“This was an unjust situation that he was placed in, a clear violation of his rights,” Fiorill said in a statement. “He was advised by the mayor that she wanted his resignation, based on those statements made on Facebook, not by Chief Berkihiser, but by Chief Berkihiser’s wife.”

#WalkAway#WALKAWAY from the intolerant and fascistic Democrat Party like so many of us already have and become an Independent Voter. Democrats have long been forcing people out of the workplace for expressing opinions they disagree with, now they’ve moved on to forcing people out for what their SPOUSE expresses.

And as we’ve all seen, Democrats NEVER stop with behavior like this. It becomes their standard method of dealing with dissenting opinions. Continue reading

THE DISCOVERY OF THE DEAD (1910)

Discovery of the DeadTHE DISCOVERY OF THE DEAD (1910) – Halloween Month continues with this look at a work written by Allen Upward.

This eerie tale is told in the form of a series of scientific reports about the experiments of a Russian scientist named Karl Luecke. While researching beyond the visible light spectrum he discovers necrolites, a way of making visible what remains of human beings after death.

These entities, which he dubs “necromorphs,” look like glowing brains, spinal columns and nervous systems (see the cover illustration). Necromorphs cannot stand sunlight and dwell underground by day. Continue reading

GHOSTS OF HANLEY HOUSE (1968) ON THE TEXAS 27 FILM VAULT

The Ghosts of Hanley House

The Ghosts of Hanley House

Halloween Month rolls along!

In the middle 1980s/ Way down on Level 31 …

Before MST3K there was The Texas 27 Film Vault! Balladeer’s Blog continues its examination of this neglected cult show from the 1980s. My interview with Randy Clower, my research through VERY old newspapers and emailed memories from my fellow Film Vault Corps fans have helped to reconstruct elements of the show’s history.

EPISODE ORIGINALLY BROADCAST: Saturday October 26th, 1985 from 10:30pm to 1:00am.

Flash Gordon Conquers the UniverseSERIAL: Before showing and mocking the movie Randy Clower and Richard Malmos, our Film Vault Technicians First Class showed and mocked a chapter of the 1940 serial Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe.

FILM VAULT LORE: Randy and Richard’s presentation of Ghosts of Hanley House has occupied a very odd niche in pop-culture trivia for quite a long time. To those of us who remember The Texas 27 Film Vault this episode is famous as “the one where Psychotronic‘s Michael Weldon seems to have confused T27FV with MST3K.”

Psychotronic Video GuideIn Weldon’s 1996 book The Psychotronic Video Guide he refers to Ghosts of Hanley House as having been riffed on by the folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000. Actually MST3K NEVER showed Ghosts of Hanley House but The Texas 27 Film Vault DID. Weldon was a fan of Movie Host shows like Ghoulardi, Zacherley, Elvira and others, so it’s possible he had also sampled episodes of Randy and Richard’s show in the 80s but the subsequent years blurred his memory to the point where he confused T27FV with MST3K in this instance.

It would be a very easy mistake to make given the similarities between the shows.

THE MOVIE: Continue reading

ANOTHER INSPIRING VIDEO FROM A LIFELONG DEMOCRAT WALKING AWAY FROM THAT PARTY OF FASCISTS

mascot donkey and republican headsRegular readers of Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog are very familiar with the disgust that drove me away from that increasingly hate-filled and intolerant party of fascists called Democrats. They’re also familiar with the #WALKAWAY movement of former Democrats and the way many of us have made YT videos about our reasons for leaving that party.

#WalkAwayDemocrats have become everything they pretended to oppose. They are violent hatemongers who pretend to lecture others about violence and hatred. They hound people from the work force and try to hound them from public life for merely expressing opinions with which Democrat fascists disagree. 

The video below features Georgia H, who tells her story of leaving behind the self-serving fantasy world in which privileged Democrat baizuos live and instead embracing reality. More such #WALKAWAY videos can be found HERE and especially for the #WALKAWAY Women’s Town Hall HERE

Villains: Marlene Blackgar, whose horrible gaze turns people to stone, and her monstrous creation Strug

His adventures were often like a comic book version of Paul Naschy’s Waldemar Daninsky werewolf movies from Spain.

Title: The Hunter and the Hunted

Villain: Mark Cephalos, a dying inventor wanting to steal the werewolf’s life-force.

MALDOROR 3:2 – VICTIMS BOTH LIVING AND DEAD

As Halloween Month continues what could be more appropriate than to resume Balladeer’s Blog’s examination of the macabre 1868 French language work The Songs of Maldoror.

WARNING: THIS IS ANOTHER OF THE MOST TWISTED, DISTURBING AND HORRIFIC STANZAS IN THE ENTIRE BOOK. 

VICTIMS BOTH LIVING AND DEAD

Maldoror 2The malevolent supernatural being Maldoror commits one of his most horrific acts of violence ever in this stanza. For those horror fans who prefer to see our vile main character perpetrating genuine atrocities this is the tale for you.  

This stanza begins with Maldoror contemplating an elderly, poverty-stricken madwoman who roams the roads of France. She wears tattered clothing and her aged face is withered like a mummy’s while what little hair she has left falls like long spider-legs over her head and neck. Continue reading
