A TERRIFIC PIECE ON THE GAP BETWEEN THE CORRUPT ESTABLISHMENT AND THE REST OF US

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsIn 2016 Balladeer’s Blog pointed out several times that the only hope for the opening steps in recognizing and addressing the rampant corruption in America’s Third World Level thugocracy would be if either Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders miraculously won the Presidency.

I knew that a victory by either of them would force the dropping of the façade, sort of like the scrambling of insects when a rock is turned over. Sadly, Bernie has shown that he would have sold out to the establishment immediately – and very cheaply if you look at how easily the Democrats bribed him into cooperation, despite his fiery but phony pose. As Hillary would point out, she may be a whore but at least she isn’t a CHEAP one like Bernie.

The events since the election, from the Democrats threatening the safety and lives of the members of the Electoral College by publicly posting their addresses on up through the ongoing Mueller Witch Hunt have shown the real nature of the career criminals called Democrats and Republicans. President Trump – the new FDR and the new JFK – is truly a de facto Third Party President.

Mascot with demo and repub headsI’ve been inundated with (unsought) congratulations by people from both sides who used to think I was overly pessimistic about the cesspool that has masqueraded as a government in the U.S. for several decades. They’ve been graciously telling me that they’ve seen – in the frantic reaction to President Trump’s attempts to Drain the Swamp – verification of everything I’ve said over the years about the white collar criminals called career politicians.  

That’s very nice of those people, but I don’t require or expect any personal acknowledgements – the best you can do if you feel that way is openly share your observations with others. The numbers of “woke” people on this subject seem to grow exponentially by the day. Unfortunately, too many of them are still too easily browbeaten into silence.  

At any rate, here’s a piece by Tom Trinko, another person like myself who has grown disgusted with Democrats and their “my political party right or wrong” attitude. (As always I think we need Third Parties since Republicans are no better.) The link is below, but first some excerpts: 

There are currently two worlds: one for the rich, leftists, and the Deep State actors, and one for the average American.  Here are some of the differences:

Their World:

Hillary can pay Russians, who may be working for the Russian government, for unconfirmed dirt on Trump and use that dirt during the campaign as well as using it to get the government to spy on Trump for her, but it’s not collusion.

Our World:
Trump is guilty of collusion even though there is not a shred of evidence that he did anything wrong.

Their World:
Bill Clinton meeting with Loretta Lynch while Lynch is supposedly investigating his wife is perfectly okay.

Our World:
Trump asking, but not ordering, James Comey to go easy on Flynn just as Comey went easy on Hillary is obstruction of justice.

Their World:
Obama can ignore federal court orders to restart issuing permits for drilling in the Gulf and to stop issuing DACA waivers.

Our World:
One random federal judge can stop the president from doing what the Constitution says the president can do.

Their World:
Obama can rescind every executive order Bush made.

Our World:
Obama is a super-president whose executive orders can’t be overturned by Trump

Their World:
A Russian oligarch who contributes $25,000,000 to Hillary’s foundation is cool.

Our World:
The same oligarch giving $150,000 to Trump’s foundation is cause for a federal investigation. Continue reading

THE BIG BUSINESS COUP PLOT AGAINST FDR AND MOCK HEADLINES FOR APRIL 11th

Trump - crooks unite against himAs Murky Mueller and his Funky Bunch of Hillary Donors put the nation on notice that attorney-client privilege exists only at the Uniparty’s whim, it’s easy to recall the Businessman’s Coup plot against President Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930s.

President Trump is the New FDR and the modern-day equivalents of Prescott Bush and his ilk in both the Democrat and Republican Parties have been savagely going after him.

Trump is SerpicoIt makes for interesting food for thought as we watch the bought and paid for career criminals who hold political office get less and less subtle.

While we ponder all that here are some Mock Headlines for April 11th: 

MUELLER BOASTS “I WAS ASSIGNED TO OVERTURN THE RESULTS OF AN ELECTION THAT DISPLEASED BLOATED RICH PIGS AND I WON’T STOP UNTIL I DO!”

FACEBOOK REMAINS “THE CONFIRMATION BIAS COMMUNITY”

CHUCK SCHUMER INSISTS PRESIDENT TRUMP MUST BE PUNISHED FOR FILLING THE WORKING CLASS RABBLE WITH THOUGHTS ABOVE THEIR STATION IN LIFE 

DEMOCRATS DEBATING WHICH RIGHTS, IF ANY, THAT THE PEASANTS DESERVE TO KEEP

won't goCORPORATE FASCIST MARK “SKIPPY” ZUCKERBERG VOWS TO CONGRESS “I WILL WIN OVER EVEN THE FEW OF YOU THAT I DON’T OWN OUTRIGHT!”

NOT EVEN MUELLER CLAIMS THAT HIS ASSAULT ON ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PHONY RUSSIA PROBE 

HILLARY SUPPORTERS GLEEFULLY ANTICIPATE DESTROYING ALL THE JOBS PRESIDENT TRUMP SAVED AND/OR CREATED

TRUMP-ETS: APRIL 10th

BET funder Robert Johnson and President TrumpOn a CNBC appearance Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television, joined the many other black business and community leaders praising President Trump for the way his economic measures have maximized opportunities for African-American jobs.

I will point out again that President Trump is the new FDR and the new Harry Truman in so many ways. And the short-sighted, bloated rich pigs among the Democrats and Republicans hate him for it and use the media outlets they own to launch constant attacks on Trump because of it. He’s the best president for the working class and the poor in decades.  

I won’t ignore the monumental good this man has accomplished for the forgotten people just because the pompous snobs, pretentious asses and cowardly conformists of the country demand it. 

Hillary dead body in trunkMeanwhile, Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton, the preferred candidate of those pompous snobs, pretentious asses and cowardly conformists, continues to ramble incoherently and blame everyone else for her humiliating – and well-deserved – defeat.

As the evidence indicates, Hillary was in the pocket of so many people thanks to moneys funneled to her that a Hillary presidency would have been the worst imaginable. 

The people of Haiti continue to suffer because of Hillary and her fake charity which was really just a back-channel for bribes and other graft, it seems. They were “Hillaried” the way far too many suffering areas of the U.S. would have been had this career criminal won in 2016. Continue reading

TRUMP-HATERS: FASCISTS AND BUFFOONS

donald-trump-and-flagBalladeer’s Blog often points out that Barack Obama and George W Bush were garbage, but de facto Third Party President Donald Trump is NOT garbage, even if only because he’s not a career politician.

Almost immediately after United States President Donald Trump utterly humiliated career criminal Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton, the deranged fascist mobs of Trump-haters began publicly admonishing against “normalizing” Trump supporters.

People who think they’re fit to impose notions of what is or is not “normal” have ALWAYS been the biggest jackasses in the world, no matter what the time period.

I’ve always thrived on being on the opposite side of the mindless zombies who seek to impose norms, so that rabid, drooling reaction from Trump-haters cemented the sides: President Trump and his supporters are the rebellious agents of change while the Trump-haters are the huffy forces of conformity, willing to use violence and threats and prim disapproval (lmao) against people who defy them.

Donald Trump rock starIt’s absurd the way the Trump-haters STILL try to pretend they’re “the resistance” (LMFAO). Uh. Yeah. “Rebels for the status quo and all the current power-holders and oppressors” is what Trump-haters are. 

Even more hilarious is the way Trump-haters try to present themselves as “intellectuals” even though their comments make it clear that they know nothing about the separation of powers, or about history or about the legislative and budgetary process. In most cases they can’t even name their state’s Senators or House reps or Governors, etc. 

That makes the political shallowness of Trump-haters very, very clear. The finer details of the political process are too challenging for their supposedly “intellectual” natures. The only political figure they can even remember is the president. Period. Continue reading

LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES: AMAZING PARALLELS

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsWelcome back to Balladeer’s Blog! Like other adults here in the U.S. my own views are a mix of “liberal” and “conservative” attitudes, that’s why the rest of us find dogmatic Liberals and dogmatic Conservatives (with capitalized L’s and C’s) to be so outdated and laughably partisan. 

 

Liberals think they’re fit to lecture the rest of us about “diversity”. / Conservatives think they’re fit to lecture the rest of us about “family values”. 

Liberals are pretentious fools who actually think they’re the country’s official “intellectuals”.  / Conservatives are nationalist fools who actually think they’re the country’s official “patriots”. 

Liberals mindlessly take sides against their own country no matter what the circumstances. / Conservatives mindlessly side with their own country no matter what the circumstances.

Liberals have hopelessly politicized the educational system, then feign outrage when people prefer home-schooling, even though it’s exactly what they would do if their children were being force-fed Conservative dogma. / Conservatives have hopelessly politicized religion, then feign outrage when people avoid church because they don’t need clueless clergy members telling them what their political views should be. 

Liberals want us to treat Christians like they’re less than human. / Conservatives want us to treat homosexuals like they’re less than human.

Liberals pompously think they’re fit to decide who is “racist.” / Conservatives pompously think they’re fit to decide who is “unpatriotic.”

Liberals want to teach only the negative aspects of American history while ignoring the positive aspects. / Conservatives want to teach only the positive aspects of American history while ignoring the negative aspects.  

Liberals grandly admonish against “demonizing” and “dehumanizing” people even though they spend all their time demonizing and dehumanizing American Conservatives. / Conservatives endlessly congratulate themselves for their alleged “Christian compassion” but loathe the thought of tax money aiding their fellow human beings in any way.

1912: BATTLE OF THE THREE PRESIDENTS

Mascot with demo and repub headsHappy Presidents Day! Balladeer’s Blog’s seasonal posts continue with this look at the presidential election of 1912.

I won’t bury this item in unnecessary detail to the point where it becomes boring. My emphasis will be on its three-way battle’s relevance to us in 2018. 

Woodrow WilsonDEMOCRAT: Woodrow Wilson, the victor. To this very day many Republicans blame Wilson for starting the country on its path toward all the things they don’t like.

They ignore the fact that their own party’s movers and shakers of the time spitefully ensured Wilson’s victory by refusing to accept the popular Theodore Roosevelt as the Republican candidate.

That drove him to the Third Party called the Progressive Party, thus splitting the anti-Wilson vote in such a way that enabled the Democrat to win.

Theodore RooseveltPROGRESSIVE: Former Republican President Theodore Roosevelt had come out of retirement to run again because he was thoroughly disenchanted with his hand-picked successor, incumbent Republican President William Howard Taft.

The reason? Theodore felt that Taft was undoing the few inroads that he (Theodore) had made against the moneyed rich pig class. Republican tycoons of the time often expressed their feeling that Teddy was a traitor to his class – an accusation that they would REALLY overuse against Theodore’s Democrat cousin Franklin Roosevelt decades later.  

This is similar to the way current President Donald Trump is often attacked by today’s bloated rich pigs, both Republican AND Democrat, because of the few inroads that HE has made against his fellows in the moneyed class. Some of the rich pigs of Teddy’s era openly referred to the way they generally carry America’s elected officials around in their pockets by saying “We bought the son of a bitch but he wouldn’t stay bought.”       

Let that sink in: Both the brazenness of the public statement AND the notion of people so wealthy they could afford to buy even an Old Money figure like Theodore Roosevelt. This too, shows how dangerous those still-prevalent plutocratic forces are and the uphill fight faced by President Trump, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and John F Kennedy.

William Howard TaftREPUBLICAN: William Howard Taft, the incumbent Republican President and a rich pig who was perfectly happy to conform to the desires of the plutocratic forces that his predecessor Theodore Roosevelt had fought.

When you think of Taft, think of today’s Republican trash like Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Mitch McConnell and all the other GOP wimps acceptable to the kind of moneyed pigs who continue to battle President Trump, even though he is nominally a member of their political party.

Virtually no one seriously doubts that Roosevelt would have defeated Woodrow Wilson if the Republicans had let the returning Teddy be their nominee in 1912. Instead, they coordinated Taft’s nomination at their convention because they knew that Theodore – like President Trump today – would have fought them on certain issues.

Roosevelt retaliated by running as the candidate of the Progressive Party aka Bull Moose Party. With Teddy and Taft splitting so much of the anti-Wilson vote, Woodrow went on to win the election, unleashing all those policies which many Republicans feel “started to destroy the country.”

One lesson from all of that is that the one percenters and bloated rich pigs who run the Republican Party have long been more than happy to spitefully enable the victory of a candidate whom their voters opposed just to block a Republican candidate that they don’t own.

So whenever right-wing Republicans go on a tirade against Woodrow Wilson it can take the conversation to interesting new places to point out that Wilson would never have become president in the first place if not for the spiteful behavior of the Republican Establishment.

This, too, is similar to the way that the Republican Party’s Never-Trump fools and the privileged white males at National Review continue to sabotage the Donald even though following his lead might ensure them a much, MUCH larger share of the working class vote and the African-American vote.

As in 1912 the greedy interests of RepubCorp’s bloated rich pigs matter more to them than the voters and the country as a whole.      Continue reading

DEMOCRATS: WILL THEY EVER GROW UP?

Mascot with demo and repub headsFirst off, I’ll point out again that I think the Democrats (DemCorp) and Republicans (RepubCorp) are both gangs of white collar criminals. However, there is no shortage of outlets pointing out the faults of just the Republicans, even though Democrats are just as disgusting.

Democrats are in SERIOUS need of introspection and soul-searching, yet refuse to venture out of the pompous haze of self-infatuation that they wrap themselves in 24 hours a day. THEY are the 21st Century’s “Ugly Americans” who prance along oblivious to all of their faults while fancying themselves to be THE moral models for the rest of us. 

Over the past year I’ve been making a point of emphasizing the way that so many of the negative aspects of our history were caused by Democrats and how they need knocked down a few pegs when they dare try to elevate themselves above the rest of the country and lecture us.

They claim all of us bear guilt just for being Americans yet seem to think THEY can dismiss their political party’s role in slavery, Jim Crow, the Ku Klux Klan, the Japanese Internment, the Trail of Tears, etc. One way they do that is by saying “Hey, that was long ago. We’re better people now.” Well if that applies to Democrats it applies to the country as a whole, too.

Another way they do it is through their ridiculous claim that “Hey, uh … all those Democrats of the past? Uh, they would be Republicans now … Yeah, that’s the ticket …” When I was still a Democrat I often mouthed those same words. I was wrong and so are any other Democrats who hide behind that lame excuse.

We are long past the time when America’s pompous, pretentious asses called Democrats need to be called out on their ridiculous airs. Transgress with me as I dare to blaspheme against the Democrats’ most sacred deities – Themselves: 

*** GROW UP, ALREADY! YOUR PERCEPTIONS HAVE BECOME NOTHING MORE THAN WISH FULFILLMENT OR DELUSIONS TO STROKE YOUR OWN EGOS AND TELL YOURSELVES HOW WONDERFUL YOU CONSIDER YOURSELVES TO BE. (Over and over again, too, until you become unbearable. Then when you drive people away you despairingly moan how you think  everyone you know is becoming right-wing.) 

*** FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIVES THINK ABOUT HOW CHILDISH YOU SOUND WHEN YOU SPOUT THAT NONSENSICAL EXCUSE ABOUT DEMOCRATS OF THE PAST. YOU ARE BASICALLY SAYING “ALL THE ‘GOOD’ PEOPLE IN HISTORY WOULD BE DEMOCRATS TODAY AND ALL THE ‘BAD’ AND ‘ICKY’ PEOPLE IN HISTORY WOULD BE REPUBLICANS TODAY.”

*** YOU HAVE A SIMPLE-MINDED, COMIC BOOK-LEVEL WORLDVIEW IN WHICH LIFE IS A CHILDISH FANTASY ABOUT GOOD GUYS AND BAD GUYS WITH YOURSELVES CONSTANTLY PAINTED AS THE GOOD GUYS AND EVERYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH YOU AS THE BAD GUYS.

*** YOU INSIST ON CASTING ALL OTHER ADULTS AS SUPPORTING PLAYERS IN YOUR INCREASINGLY JUVENILE DRAMAS, WITH YOU AS THE CORRECT-THINKER SETTING STRAIGHT THE VILLAINS OF THE PIECE.

*** AND IT ISN’T JUST THAT YOU PERPETUAL CHILDREN CAST EVERYONE ELSE AS SUPPORTING PLAYERS IN THOSE DRAMAS, IT’S THAT YOUR LIMITED IMAGINATIONS CAN ONLY CONJURE UP SUCH FOURTH-RATE DRAMAS.

*** I AM TELLING YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY THAT MANY REPUBLICANS, OR RIGHT-WINGERS, OR INDEPENDENT VOTERS OR TRUMP SUPPORTERS REALLY ARE AS TOLERANT, INTELLIGENT AND COMPASSIONATE AS YOU EGOMANIACS ONLY THINK YOU ARE.

*** THE DOGMATIC ASSERTIONS THAT YOU TRY TO PUMMEL THE REST OF US WITH ARE NOT FACTS AND JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN SUMMON EQUALLY SMALL-MINDED PEOPLE (or maybe just sock puppets) WHO AGREE WITH YOU DOES NOT MAKE THEM FACTS. THEY ARE STILL NOTHING MORE THAN ASSERTIONS SHARED BY A CERTAIN NUMBER OF PEOPLE.

*** YOUR PERCEPTIONS MIGHT BETTER BE DESCRIBED AS JUST AN EXERCISE IN WISH FULFILLMENT OR PROPS FOR YOUR SIMPLISTIC WORLDVIEW IN WHICH YOU ARE “GOOD” AND EVERYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH YOU IS “EVIL.” (As if such childish concepts belong anywhere outside of religion.) Continue reading
