CALM DOWN, PEOPLE, 31 OTHER PRESIDENTIALLY DECLARED EMERGENCIES ARE STILL IN EFFECT

panic-signHello everyone! As always I find it humbling when so many overseas readers ask me for my honest, non-partisan take on our political scene here in America. I will be 100% sincere with this blog post about the ridiculous overreaction to de facto Third Party President Trump declaring a national emergency regarding the flood of illegal immigrants and illegal drugs pouring across our border with Mexico, a virtual narco-state at this point given how the Cartels run wild.

PRESIDENTIALLY DECLARED NATIONAL EMERGENCIES – As always, America’s corporate media and our white-collar criminals called career politicians are needlessly whipping up a frenzy just because it’s Trump – an outsider rocking the boat – who is in office right now. Presidentially declared national emergencies are much less than advertised.

NEARLY SIXTY SUCH NATIONAL EMERGENCIES HAVE BEEN DECLARED SINCE 1976.

THIRTY-ONE OF THOSE DECLARED NATIONAL EMERGENCIES ARE STILL IN EFFECT.

THIRTEEN OF THOSE NATIONAL EMERGENCIES WERE DECLARED BY BARACK OBAMA.

OBVIOUSLY, SINCE VIRTUALLY NOBODY EVEN KNEW ABOUT THOSE NATIONAL EMERGENCY ORDERS STILL BEING IN EFFECT THOSE EMERGENCIES DO NOT MEAN WE ARE INCHES AWAY FROM A DICTATORSHIP.

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsTHE MAIN PEOPLE SPREADING PANIC ABOUT THIS SITUATION ARE THE TWO LEAST TRUSTWORTHY ELEMENTS OF AMERICA – THE MEDIA AND CAREER POLITICIANS. (I don’t care about shallow, uninformed and emotionally unstable entertainers.)

Below is just one link where you can check this out for yourself. There are plenty more, like at the Federal Registry. Continue reading

A TERRIFIC BOOK ABOUT HOW THE ELITE BLAME THE REST OF US FOR THE PROBLEMS THEY CREATE

Anand GiridharadasRegular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know that I often write about the way that the callous, comfortable elites love to blame the rest of us for the problems they have created in the world.

The way the corporate media and Democrat “educators” (LMAO) distort history one might think that there was once an age when the poor and the working class ruled the world and caused colonialism, wars and all the other plagues that were really caused by the Powers That Be among the rich and politically connected. The people who STILL run things, in other words.

The elites and techno-fascists of Silicon Valley love to lecture and talk down to the poor and the working class as if those elites had to “overthrow” the rule of the underclasses so they could try to “save” the world from destructive policies implemented by … the classes that have never held any political or economic power. (?) How would that have worked, exactly? Seizing the world they always controlled from the people who never exercised any control over it?   

Anand Giridharadas 2

ANAND “DICE” GIRIDHARADAS

At any rate Anand Giridharadas has released Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing The World. It’s his new book dealing with the way in which wealthy leftists pretend to be saviors while obscuring their role in causing all the problems they loudly rail against. Giridharadas reflects the genuine revolution in thinking that is marking the 21st Century because – like me – he approaches the issues from a left-wing background but grows increasingly critical of the political left’s hypocrisy and abuses.

To quote from some reviews: 

“Former New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can — except ways that threaten the social order and their position atop it. “

“We see how they rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor; how they lavishly reward “thought leaders” who redefine “change” in winner-friendly ways …”

“We hear the limousine confessions of a celebrated foundation boss; witness a former American president hem and haw about his plutocratic benefactors; and attend a cruise-ship conference where entrepreneurs celebrate their own self-interested magnanimity.”

As always, guilt-stricken rich white people who want to think of themselves as “progressives” are shown to be fools.”

“(T)he problem is that affluence begets arrogance, including a we-know-what’s-best attitude where these overprivileged people act as if they’re missionaries and the rest of us are ignorant savages in need of their “enlightened” supervision.”

“This kind of preachy liberalism — folks who imagine themselves to be neo-Platonic archons because their Daddy could afford to send them to Harvard — offends me as an expression of snobbery.” Continue reading

FACULTY LOUNGE FASCIST ROUNDUP: JANUARY 31st

VoltaireThe latest laughs coming from the Democrats who pretend to be academics center around their claim that “using quality as a criterion for grades is racist … and so is architecture” 

It’s no secret that make-believe “educators” (LMAO) have – through their political intolerance – reduced colleges and universities to faith-based institutions that are as irrational as any religious “schools.”

The Democrats at these institutions abuse their positions to browbeat their students with their unhinged political views.

ACADEMIC GRIEVANCE STUDIES AND THE CORRUPTION OF SCHOLARSHIP – This is a terrific item at Areo Magazine. It’s a look at the blatantly partisan political screeds that masquerade as scholarship. 

The trio of authors have also demonstrated the absurdity of grievance “theories” by getting collections of gibberish published IN PEER-REVIEWED PUBLICATIONS under the noses of alleged academics who could not even tell that the papers presented were PARODIES of the silliness of politically distorted “scholarship.”  

The link is below, but first an excerpt: 

“Something has gone wrong in the university—especially in certain fields within the humanities. Scholarship based less upon finding truth and more upon attending to social grievances has become firmly established, if not fully dominant, within these fields, and their scholars increasingly bully students, administrators, and other departments into adhering to their worldview.

“This worldview is not scientific, and it is not rigorous. For many, this problem has been growing increasingly obvious, but strong evidence has been lacking. For this reason, the three of us just spent a year working inside the scholarship we see as an intrinsic part of this problem.” Continue reading

TRANSGRESS WITH ME: JANUARY 7th

masc graveyard newTime for another installment of Balladeer’s Blog’s feature Transgress With Me.

*** Thanks to Democrat intolerance toward any dissenting views, affiliation with just ONE political party has become an unspoken condition of employment in “education” (LMAO), entertainment and most media outlets (including social media).

*** Academic Freedom is a meaningless sham when alleged colleges and universities become political organizations that fascistically impose just ONE narrow-minded set of views and punish any dissent.

*** When Democrats call for more women in certain positions they really mean they want more DEMOCRAT women in certain positions. When Democrats call for more people of color in certain positions they really mean they want more DEMOCRAT people of color in certain positions. We’ve all seen how Democrats treat women and people of color who refuse to obey white Democrats. Continue reading

DAVE RUBIN: ANOTHER OF US FORMER DEMOCRATS FED UP WITH THE PARTY

rubin-reportHere at Balladeer’s Blog I often write about my own personal disillusionment with the increasingly fascistic and intolerant American Left in general and the Democrats in particular. The famed Dave Rubin had a similar estrangement from the fanatics called Democrats.

In a recent interview he went so far as to predict that leftists will destroy themselves with the way they continue purging rational Democrats from the party. The link is below but first some excerpts:

“The Left, unfortunately, has become about collectivism,” said the Rubin Report host, who added that those who believe in the “collective over the individual” are the ones who are actually “exerting prejudice.”

Rubin also pointed out how the left still tries to hurl unfounded accusations of “hatred” against everyone who disagrees with them:

“If the conservatives are the home of the homophobes and the bigots, [then conservatives] are doing a really, really terrible job of it,” said Rubin at the recent Student Action Summit for Turning Point USA.

“You’ve got one side [the Left] that screams about tolerance all the time, but never actually exerts it, and you have another side that doesn’t talk about tolerance that much, because they just sort of act that way.”

democrats hate free speechRubin also said that he believes the Left will end up destroying itself by purging the last remaining rational democrats from the party, as they are quick to attack their own whenever a fellow liberal attempts to take a more moderate stance.

“This idea of intersectionality — [the Left] has created this Pyramid of Oppression Olympics that is in constant competition to be more oppressed,” said Rubin.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, FOR SUPPORTERS OF FREE SPEECH: Rubin discussed the way that sites like Patreon seem to have joined the corporate fascists at Facebook, Google and Twitter in trying to eliminate online dissent from the Democrat Party line. Obliquely referring to the rumored start of a FREE SPEECH ALTERNATIVE TO PATREON, Rubin said “The cavalry’s coming.”   Continue reading

AFRICAN-AMERICAN BOB JOHNSON WITH MORE PRAISE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S OPPORTUNITY COUNCIL

Bob Johnson and Trump latestDe facto Third Party President Donald Trump has done more for the working class and poor OF ALL COLORS than any other President in decades. As I’ve often mentioned, financially comfortable Democrats are every bit as callous toward the plight of the working class and the poor as the most bloated rich pig Republicans ever were.

President Trump’s latest Franklin Roosevelt-style move was his creation of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council. Black Entertainment Television founder Bob Johnson praised Trump highly for this Council, created on December 12th.

Poverty-stricken neighborhoods will be the focus in a “from the ground – up” quality of life improvement via jobs and training. Long before he was President, Trump often spear-headed initiatives like this with his assorted companies and just as often was awarded recognition by various African-American groups – even ones run by Al Sharpton.

Donald Trump never called racist till running against DemocratsRemember, Donald Trump is a former Democrat like me and so many others who were driven away by the Democrat Party’s emerging contempt for the working class. And as Republicans ALWAYS remind us, Trump is not a “real Republican.” (Which is why he got elected, actually.)

Like I often say, President Trump noticed that the Republicans weren’t doing anything useful with their political party apparatus so he decided to borrow it for awhile as a path to the Presidency. America’s bloated rich pigs – both Democrat AND Republican – will never forgive the Donald for helping the forgotten Americans.

This man has shown compassion and gotten positive results for the working class and the poor WHILE BEING ATTACKED RELENTLESSLY BY BOTH PARTIES JUST FOR BEING AN OUTSIDER TO THEIR CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE. Those of us who support Trump are not going to ignore that fact just because he is hated by crooked career politicians, brain-dead professional athletes and shallow, uninformed and emotionally unstable entertainers.

TRANSGRESS WITH ME: NOVEMBER 29th

Mascot FOUR original pics

Balladeer’s Blog

Yes, it is time once again for another round of Transgress With Me here at Balladeer’s Blog.

** IT’S TIME TO CALL FOR THE PRIVILEGED WHITE ONE PERCENTERS OF HOLLYWOOD AND SILICON VALLEY TO LIVE UP TO THEIR SELF-RIGHTEOUS PREENING AND DONATE ALL BUT TWO MILLION DOLLARS OF THEIR OWN FORTUNES TO FINANCE THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS THEY PRETEND TO CARE ABOUT.

** AS A FOLLOWUP, THIS SHOULD BE DEMANDED OF THOSE SHALLOW POSEURS EVERY TIME THEY PRESUME TO LECTURE THE REST OF THE COUNTRY.

** AN OLD SAYING GOES THAT “THE DISSENTING OPINIONS OF ONE GENERATION BECOME THE PREVAILING VIEWS OF THE NEXT.” THAT IS NO LONGER TRUE SINCE DEMOCRATS INTOLERANTLY TRY TO PRESERVE THEIR EVERY POLITICAL WHIM BY SETTING THEM IN STONE AND DECLARING IT “HATE SPEECH” TO QUESTION THEM.

** THE SUPPOSEDLY “INTOLERANT” DEAD WHITE MALES OF THE PAST RECOGNIZED WHAT THE FASCISTIC POLITICAL LEFT DENIES – THAT FUTURE GENERATIONS SHOULD HAVE THE FREEDOM TO AMEND THE LAWS ACCORDING TO EVOLVING PHILOSOPHIES AND ATTITUDES. INSTEAD THE LEFT INSISTS THEY HAVE “THE ONE TRUE WORLD VIEW” AND THAT THEIR NARROW-MINDED VALUES ARE ENTIRELY AND ETERNALLY “RIGHT.” NOW AND FOREVER. 

** TO SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY HOLLYWOOD SHOULD IMMEDIATELY SWITCH TO A SOCIALIST SYSTEM IN WHICH ALL THE MONEY MADE IS DISTRIBUTED EVENLY AND NO POSITION EARNS MORE THAN ANY OTHER POSITION. ALL THEIR MANSIONS ARE TO BE USED AS HOUSING FOR THE POOR, TOO. Continue reading
