Tag Archives: Anti-Trump Hysteria


President Trump and flagIt has been shown over and over again that there are few things more true than something that anti-Trump fascists claimed was a “Trump lie.” Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog has already covered well over one hundred such items and now we have another blog post for that ever-rising pile. If someone tells you “Trump lied about ____” don’t bother believing them at this point.

In 2018 de facto Third Party President Donald Trump suggested plans to California for reducing the chances for the repeated forest fires which devastate that state but, in their usual childish “we MUST disagree with everything Trump says” attitude, Democrats and their media outlets accused Trump of lying and ridiculed his suggestion. NOW THEY ARE FOLLOWING TRUMP’S ADVICE AFTER RIDICULING HIM AND ACCUSING HIM OF LYING IN 2018. (link below) 

This is just another reminder that if anything was categorized as a “Trump lie” the odds are that the slobbering fanatics who spend their every waking moment hating Trump are REALLY the ones lying. Anti-Trumpers have forfeited all benefit of the doubt. They have been proven to be liars over and over again, not him. Continue reading

democrat republican or awakeIt’s become impossible to ignore the way that the corrupt establishment and their corporate media outlets fear populism and obsessively try to demonize it. In a way it’s a replay of the late 1800s when the labor movement was striking and demanding better pay and working conditions. The establishment responded with ugly demonization of working class people’s efforts to survive as something more than peasants.

America’s President Grover Cleveland even went so far as to describe labor activist Eugene Debs as “an enemy of the human race.” That is certainly reminiscent of the over the top rhetoric used today by the Powers That Be to instill the public with feelings of fear and hostility toward popular movements that threaten their privileges. 

It’s important to remember that Eugene Debs called himself a socialist back when socialism was largely about fighting the entrenched Big Money interests on behalf of the suffering poor and the working class, not the pseudo-religion it is today, when socialism is all about dictating every aspect of our lives. Debs was demonized by the establishment from around the 1890s through the 1920s, even arrested and left to languish in prison merely for protesting America’s involvement in the First World War of 1914-1918.

trump wuhanIndependent voter site Balladeer’s Blog notes ONCE AGAIN that the Democrats’ media outlets have humiliated themselves because of their reflexive, irrational need to wrongly label information “lies” just because that information came from de facto Third Party President Donald Trump. Last year the very valid statement that there was some evidence linking Covid-19 to a Wuhan Laboratory was hysterically condemned as a “lie” by Democrats in the media and Big Tech Fascists at Twitter, Facebook, etc rushed to censor that information. (links below) 

corporate media liesNow, the CDC and even the Democrats at the New York Times, Washington Post and elsewhere are admitting they were wrong AGAIN, with some of them hilariously blaming Trump for their mistakes. Actually, the corporate media’s well-known biases are to blame, as usual. This has happened over and over to the point that it’s becoming a truism to say that there may be nothing truer than something that was labeled a “Trump lie.”

Courageous non-partisan journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who has taken abuse for her hard-hitting reports on BOTH major American political parties, has outlined the biases of alleged “fact checkers” (LMAO) and has also covered over one hundred false stories the media spread about Trump. (links below)

As to this Wuhan Lab item, the forever doddering, stammering, prevaricating and flip-flopping Anthony Fauci, whose inept handling of AIDS decades ago has become the stuff of legend, continues to go back and forth on this topic depending on which way the winds are blowing on any given day.

steele dossierAnd yet ANOTHER anti-Trump lie is finally abandoned by the Democrats at the New York Times (links below). Here at Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog I can certainly understand hostile feelings toward given presidents. Regular readers know how much I despise George W Bush and Barack Obama, but I also pointed out when I thought negative stories about them were absurdly over the top. With de facto Third Party President Donald Trump it’s like the media did nothing BUT absurdly over the top stories about him that fell apart under the most casual scrutiny.

Over the years all of the actual evidence showed how the Steele Dossier was full of holes and deceptions but for America’s deranged Democrats even the most idiotic notions are kept afloat until the Times explicitly states that, once again, it was in the wrong. But hey, loons, cheer up. I doubt that HuffPo, the site for HUFFy, POST-menopausal white Democrats will ever admit the Steele Dossier was garbage, so you can keep going there.

corporate media liesI can’t help but doubt that the Times would have admitted to this if Donald Trump was still in the Oval Office, however. They’d probably STILL be sniveling about non-existent “Russian Collusion” (LMAO) and demanding further “investigations.” They’re only admitting it now because it’s safe to, like the Russian Bounties nonsense and so many other instances of Fake News. (There is no other term for it, no matter how much it rankles biased media fools.)

Before I provide some excerpts and links to this latest tale of rats abandoning the sinking Steele Dossier ship, let me also point out that yet ANOTHER statement that Democrat media outlets claimed was a Trump “lie” has now proven to be true. Back in August President Trump pointed out that Covid cases were being over-counted in hospitals. Anti-Trump fascists reflexively claimed this was a “lie” but now the CDC Director has admitted that, yes indeed, Covid cases were being over-counted in hospitals. (links below)

Regarding the Steele Dossier hoax, the links are below, but first some excerpts from one of the items:

” … claims in the dossier “have never materialized or have been proved false.”

“The dossier, he said, went on a “journey from media obsession to slush pile.” 

” … Steele had been hired by an investigative firm called Fusion GPS “to gather dirt about Donald J. Trump and Russia.”

“Just the News editor John Solomon reported at the time that the documents showed the collusion narrative was created and leaked to the news media to “neutralize Hillary Clinton’s concern that her email scandal had not yet gone away.”    Continue reading

mascot donkey and republican headsOverseas readers have been asking me about the Liz Cheney situation in Congress. Since Balladeer’s Blog is an Independent Voter site I’ve always made it clear I would be fine if both the Democrats and Republicans splintered into multiple smaller parties because neither one represents the needs of their constituents at this time. That’s why people know they will get a response from me that is NOT motivated by political party bias.

I would love to be able to describe the situation without having to discuss the Donald Trump angle, but our insane media loves to pump up ratings by making EVERYTHING about Trump, so there is no way around it. Links to news items regarding the following remarks are presented below.

To begin with, Liz Cheney is political garbage from the Republican Party. Her father is THE Dick Cheney, Vice President under the repulsive and disastrous George W Bush. (Remember the much lauded movie Vice? That’s her “daddy.”) Her father’s conflicts of interest and blood-soaked ways of making money off the still-going Middle East conflict that the Bush-Cheney Administration LIED THE COUNTRY INTO are still relevant.

LIZ CHENEY REPRESENTS EVERYTHING AND EVERY POLICY THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD CONDEMNED AMERICA FOR OVER THE COURSE OF NEARLY A DECADE. She and her family are part of the obscenely corrupt and callous Bush Family wing of the Republican Party. The wing of open-ended warfare, of looking for new countries to invade, of contempt for the working class and the poor and so many other abuses.

The Cheney-Bush Republicans have been feuding with Donald Trump over the years for a number of reasons, INCLUDING the way that Trump kept Jeb Bush out of the White House in 2016. The horrific Bush-Cheney wing felt Jeb Bush, part of one of the most corrupt and harmful political families in history, “deserved” the presidency. There is no need to choose sides in this, of course, but don’t believe the way that the Democrats’ media outlets are depicting Liz Cheney like she cares about anything except putting the disgusting Cheney-Bush Republicans back in the driver’s seat.

democrat republican or awakeAnd remember, even if you hate Donald Trump, another reason the Cheney-Bush Warmongers opposed him is because HE KEPT THE U.S. OUT OF ANY NEW WARS. Even the most anti-Trump media outlets in the U.S. are often willing to concede that point. AND SINCE THE CHENEY-BUSH WING OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WANTS ALL-WAR, ALL THE TIME, WITH VAGUE OBJECTIVES THAT THEY CAN ALWAYS CLAIM HAVEN’T BEEN MET YET, THAT IS WHY LIZ CHENEY AND HER ILK BASH TRUMP. If you back her, you’re backing open-ended warfare, among other things.   

Our country’s Democrat Media outlets are, of course, painting Liz as “the good guy” because they are still motivated by their bizarre and obsessive anti-Trump hysteria AND because, as anyone can understand, the more in-fighting among Republicans, the more that helps the Democrats. Any political party’s media outlets would encourage in-fighting among their opponents.

A bigger problem comes in with the way America’s notoriously dishonest and shallow media reflexively canonizes ANYONE who criticizes Trump. That is why we have seen some of the ugliest political grifters in decades get lionized by the media if they bash Trump, and all the facts get ignored in the mad rush to side with them.

Even if you really, really hate Donald Trump, we have had several years now to see that reactionary anti-Trump hysteria prompts some people to instantly revere some horrible people. Look at Governor Andrew Cuomo’s now-exposed coverup of his negligent slayings of the elderly in New York elder-care facilities AND of his repeated sexual assaults. Just because he and Trump were in public disagreement, the disgusting Cuomo was being hailed for his (now revealed as lies) “press briefings” on Covid. Democrats even gave him an Emmy for them before the truth came out, remember?

For additional reminders of the way our irrational and dementedly partisan media acts like “disagreement with Trump washes away all crimes and sins”:

mccain warmonger*** John McCain, the racist Republican warmonger who did more than anyone else to try to stop America from having its first African-American president, was, of course, LATER treated like a statesman by the Democrats’ media outlets because he feuded with Trump. Hell, if you have a short memory or were too young to have noticed it, John McCain was, once upon a time being likened to Hitler, etc. For just one small (and light-hearted) example, you can still see Family Guy reruns like the one depicting the time-traveling Stewie and Brian encountering Nazis in the World War Two era wearing John McCain buttons. (The cartoon dates from around when McCain and Sarah Palin were running for president and vice president in real life.) Continue reading

democrat republican or awakeHere at Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog I can certainly understand hostile feelings toward given presidents. Regular readers know how much I despise George W Bush and Barack Obama, but I also pointed out when I thought negative stories about them were absurdly over the top. With de facto Third Party President Donald Trump it’s like the media did nothing BUT absurdly over the top stories about him that fell apart under the most casual scrutiny. This most recent example involves the lie about Russia and bounties (links below) which turned out to be as untrue as all of the “Russian collusion” nonsense. 

sharyl attkisson picNon-partisan journalist Sharyl Attkisson, the Ida Tarbell of the 21st Century, has catalogued well over ONE HUNDRED negative Trump stories which were proven to be false, yet still get repeated by unstable anti-Trump loons as if they were true. 

Recently, even more news stories have surfaced regarding JUDGES RULING THAT DEMOCRATS VIOLATED ELECTION LAWS BY COUNTING MAIL-IN BALLOTS WHICH ARRIVED AFTER ELECTION DAY WITH NO POSTMARK or by Democrat governors making unilateral changes to election law in their state – changes which by law MUST be done by the state’s legislature. Obviously, nobody can go back and exclude all those ballots at this late date since most evidence has not been preserved. That’s because of Democrats and their media outlets insisting over and over that Trump was “lying” when he pointed out the widespread 2020 vote fraud, and pretending the fraud stories had been “debunked” or “discredited” even though various cases were – and are – still working their way through the system.

mascot donkey and republican headsNow come revelations about the utter falsehood of last year’s media hit pieces claiming that Putin was offering bounties to Taliban troops in Afghanistan, and that Trump was aware of it and did nothing. Now the media – and America’s forever-vile “intelligence community” – have walked back those ridiculous claims. THE BOUNTY OFFERS NEVER HAPPENED, so there was nothing for Trump to know, but hey, they got to damage Trump close to the election by implying he answered to Putin and was letting him offer bounties on U.S. troops.

One of the reasons I USED TO BE a Democrat was because Democrats used to openly criticize the dishonesty and vile behavior of America’s rightfully despised intelligence community, but in recent years the Democrats have sold out and are fine with repulsive behavior from the intelligence services if the behavior benefits their political party.

Just like the media claimed Trump was lying about the Biden Family scandals, especially involving Hunter Biden, only to recently backtrack and admit that they were wrong. Big Tech even censored remarks by Trump and/or his supporters last year calling attention to those scandals on the grounds that it was supposed “election misinformation.”

corporate mediaBack to the Russian Bounty lies – here’s an excerpt from a terrific article (link below) about that miscarriage of intelligence work and “journalism.” FAKE NEWS is an accurate description of what America’s corporate media inflicts on the public.

“If the Russia Bounty Hoax is not the final straw for those who still rely on the corporate media for news, you obviously enjoy being lied to and misinformed. This is how it works: In an effort to meddle in a presidential election, some lying, anonymous Deep Stater leaks deliberate misinformation to the far-left New York Times. The Times uncritically publishes what it knows is disinformation. The rest of the corporate media spend days spreading what they know is a lie. The target of the lie, in this case President Trump, denies the story. The corporate media fact checkers declare him a liar with the full boat of four Pinocchios.” 

“And then…

Long after it no longer matters…

The fake media tell the truth — that it was all a lie.”

“Back in July, the left-wing propagandists at the Times published this pile of obvious horseshit: “Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Soldiers” (I don’t link fake news). The goal of this attack on Trump was the claim he knew about it and did nothing. The obvious narrative is that Trump cares more about Putin than our troops.

corporate media lies“At the time the Russia Bounty story was an obvious and blatant lie, an unconfirmed report, a manufactured narrative to undermine one of Trump’s many presidential strengths — in this case, his affection for the U.S. military and his string of foreign policy success at making the world a safer and more peaceful place.

Again and again and again, this is how the corporate media use fake news … They find or invent a source to tell them a lie they are desperate to report, then the rest of the scumbags — the entire institution of the corporate media — coordinates to go hog-wild with it so the lie consumes the news for days and weeks. Then the Democrats go hog-wild with it. Then, when the target of lies denies the lie, the fraudulent fact checkers go to work.”

Trump in the wayIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog is happy to report that America’s organized crime gangs called the Democrat and Republican Parties continue to enhance de facto Third Party President Donald Trump’s status as a folk hero! They doctored videotape “evidence,” they violated the Constitution by trying to impeach a president after they told us he was out of office AND they tried to pretend that the January 6th protests over vote fraud and other issues from the forever tainted 2020 election were “an insurrection.” LMAO.

Remember, I’m a former Democrat who spent years of my life around them and trust me, Democrats feel nothing but contempt for the Capitol Building and also feel contempt for people who DO revere the Capitol Building and its “symbolism” so it was especially nauseating to hear them act like they cared about anything except political theater with their absurd overreaction to the events of January 6th.

At any rate, instead of letting Trump peter out into a spent force the Democrats decided to make him even MORE of a martyr and a figure of hopeful defiance for the working class and the poor by trying this idiotic impeachment attempt. 

With his image as a maverick populist hero who fights America’s corrupt politicians cemented, here’s another revisiting of the blog post I wrote when Trump first won in 2016: Continue reading

Trump living rent-free in Democrats' headsIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog has repeatedly pointed out that the Democrat and Republican Parties are nothing but rival gangs of white-collar criminals. De facto Third Party President Donald Trump was a true outsider and genuinely helped the working class and the poor plus he kept the country out of any new wars, so he is still being persecuted for all of that.

The corrupt politicians opposed to him are trying to send a message to the voters to never again vote for a candidate who is not a “made man” in their criminal club. If you actually believe the protest on January 6th was an “insurrection” you’re clearly delusional or you’re simply blinded by hatred.

democrat republican or awakeLast week I posted about the Circuit Judge ruling that the Democrats counting ballots that arrived with no postmark days after the election was illegal and should not be done again. There are over two dozen court cases STILL going on – links below with updates.

At any rate the 2020 election will forever be as tainted as the 1876 and year 2000 elections. And by the way, even if you go by the publicly stated results of roughly 75 million votes for Trump and roughly 80 million for Biden, that is not an outrageous difference. Anti-Trumpers are trying to act like Biden got twice as many votes as Trump did or something and are trying to criminalize Trump’s supporters. 

Plus people who still snivel about non-existent “Russian Collusion” and spent 4 years claiming Trump was not a legitimate president have no grounds for claiming other people should not be allowed to express their own opinions. Continue reading

Democrat rat



Democrat media outlets, quoting “sources” (LMAO!) lied and claimed President Trump left behind no vaccine distribution plan and that Joe Biden is starting “from scratch.” We all know the pattern. If Big Tech fascists like Jack Dorsey want to, they will start banning accounts that point out what a lie that is. Democrat “Fact-checkers” (LMAO!) will insist those lies are the truth as well.

Tens of millions of doses were already distributed by the Trump Administration, as just one indicator of what a lie that is. 

Even anti-Trump Sam Stein from the Democrats’ outlet Politico, noted how untrue that was:


Sam Stein
Biden folks are spinning here or trying to lower the bar strategically. There was, indeed, a plan from Trump. I listened in on govs calls on vaccine distribution. The plan had obvious shortcomings. but to say there’s nothing to rework is not true.
Ross Levitt
Great SCOOP from ⁦@mj_lee⁩ on how bad this situation is with vaccine distribution: “There is nothing for us to rework. We are going to have to build everything from scratch,” one source said. cnn.com/2021/01/21/pol

Even the ghoulish “Grim Reaper” Fauci pointed out they are not having to “start from scratch,” yet as we all saw over the last five years Democrats never let the truth stop them from saying something.

Drew Holden@DrewHolden360
Replying to @DrewHolden360But it wasn’t just @CNN. Other outlets and their reporters piled on, too. Because you see, if people believe this, Biden’s job gets way easier: anything tied to the vaccine is a success. It wouldn’t be a chance for anti-Trump spin if @maddow and @MaddowBlog weren’t involved.7:08 PM · Jan 21, 2021569

Biden has called for vaccinating 100 million Americans in the first 100 days of his administration, which would be one million per day. Bloomberg Business data indicates that rate had already been reached as Trump left office.But as usual, Democrats will keep pushing any lie that puts President Trump in a negative light.

Ed Morrisey worded it well: “Maybe the Biden team would be better advised to start thinking outside the box rather than reflexively pre-empting criticism by complaining about their predecessors. That’s especially true when the only reason the vaccines exist in the first place is because their predecessors took unprecedented action to ensure their production.

And by the way, BIDEN HAS KIDS IN CAGES … Oh, that’s right, anti-Trump fascists only pretended to care about those kids in order to bash Trump. They won’t complain about Biden’s kids in cages.

mother-jonesI consider President Trump the best president for the working class and the poor during my lifetime. Here’s a take from a true working class heroine. Mary Harris Jones, the legendary labor organizer from the 1890s onward, also known as “the Miner’s Angel” and “Mother Jones,” spoke to Balladeer’s Blog yet again, despite being dead since 1930. 

BALLADEER’S BLOG: Well, hello again! I always enjoy our talks.  

MOTHER JONES: I’m glad to hear it, sonny! I continue to be very impressed with the way President Trump – the new FDR and the new Harry Truman – fought with the same kind of plutocratic oppressors I always fought.

Trump is SerpicoBB: I admit the stench from Washington, DC is amazing. “Draining the Swamp” as it were, demonstrated the depth of corruption and outright criminal activity the Democrats and Republicans are responsible for. It took a de facto Third Party President like Trump to peel back the curtain.

MJ: You know it, young man! No Democrat or Republican would have rocked the boat like this! I think President Trump is like many heroes in one.

BB: It will be interesting to hear the kinds of comparisons you make regarding all this, but –

MJ: Yes, yes, I know you like to talk, but I want you to just listen for awhile.

BB: Okay.

Franklin RooseveltMJ: First off, President Trump is like Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR was looking out for the working class and the poor, so rich fat cat scum tried to destroy him like they’re doing with Donald Trump. They even tried the noted Businessman’s Coup plot against FDR.

Right now the way that rich pig Big Tech fascists are behaving is disgusting.   

SECOND, President Trump is like Harry S Truman. Harry gave ’em Hell every chance he could and weak-kneed sissy boys like today’s Mitt Romney and Mitch McConnell clutched their pearls and reached for the smelling salts. Trump shocks more Republican and Democrat trash in one week than good old Harry did in his entire presidency!  

BrubakerTHIRD, President Trump is like that Robert Redford fella when he played Brubaker! Like Trump, Brubaker was trying to clean out a virtual sewer of corrupt officialdom. Even if the scumbags fighting Trump oust him, it will be like the ending of Brubaker, when the prisoners – or American citizens in Trump’s case – gathered around to pay him respect.

The prisoners giving the departing Brubaker a slow clap of good bye was an acknowledgement that the man had tried to help them and to fight the crooked politicians and rich pigs abusing them. President Trump’s departure might be SYMBOLICALLY like that if the Establishment criminals succeed in driving him from office.

BB: That’s a very profound comparison. Even if – like Brubaker – President Trump’s bottom line accomplishment is to raise awareness in all of us about the NEED to fight the white collar criminals who have hijacked our political system, there is a certain dignity in that. A dignity that people like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden could never understand.  

MJ: Good lad, Balladeer, but I have plenty more heroes to compare with President Trump, so pipe down.  Continue reading
