With the latest attempt to do justice to Frank Herbert’s sci fi classic Dune hitting U.S. theaters here’s a look at Dune and the Alien film series as analogies for 21st Century America.
Balladeer’s Blog remains the only site on the web that equally criticizes both Democrats and Republicans, depending on which party has been committing greater offenses at the moment.
Reader reaction to my blog post which depicted America and our corrupt political parties as part of the Alien franchise (HERE) was impressive so here is a tongue in cheek look at the U.S. as part of the Dune franchise.
First, my traditional opening to such posts:
“We’re a world of 7 billion people, 10 billion blogs and 20 billion political poses.”
THE FREMEN – These are American VOTERS who heroically endure the harsh, ugly conditions that the hopelessly corrupt and outdated Houses have imposed on the nation.
The bizarre throwback to a feudal culture resulting from the destructive, self-serving policies of those two Houses has become more and more apparent with each passing year. The gap between the haves and have-nots was never clearer than in the past nine months.
Still the Fremen soldier on, trying to eke out a living and preserve what few of their liberties remain to them while striking back at their callous and uncaring oppressors whenever they can. The only hope for the future rests with the Fremen/ Voters, certainly not the would-be aristocrats of the venal Houses. Continue reading
KUNG FAUX (2003) – Created and crafted by Mic Neumann, this half-hour comedy series was basically a hip hop version of old movies and television shows that overdubbed non-comedies with comedic dialogue, music and sound effects. In Kung Faux‘s case it featured re-edited and highly stylized martial arts films from the 1970s overdubbed with contemporary music and a hip hop comedic sensibility.
Though Kung Faux brands this treatment as “dubtitling” as a nod to dubbed and subtitled dialogue, the approach debuted on vintage television shows like Fractured Flickers (1963), in which celebrities would dub improvised comedic dialogue over old silent movies.
The theatrical release What’s Up, Tiger Lily? (1966), Woody Allen’s overdubbing of a Japanese spy movie to make it a battle over an egg salad recipe, is still the best known of these ventures. Not even serials were exempt from such treatment, with my favorite example being Firesign Theater’s production Hot Shorts (1984) featuring items like Sperm Bank Bandits in which the comedy team inserted comical dialogue over old serials like Canadian Mounties vs Atomic Invaders.

First we looked at the Wunder Boner, then learned how “Ayds can help you lose weight” and now comes the excitement of Ball Buster!
It’s the Wunder Boner! And yes, this ad really exists, it’s not just an urban legend.
Balladeer TV is back with new episodes premiering tonight, beginning at 8PM ET:
TWILIGHT ZONE – “C’mon, Man …” A hopelessly corrupt sexual assailant named Joe Biden makes a bargain with the devil to become president, only to have that dream become a nightmare as he only reaches office via mail-in vote fraud and the help of techno-fascists who then own him. Even worse, he is so mentally impaired that he is not even capable of understanding that he is in office and his own staff have to cut him off when he offers to take questions from the media.
IT’S AN INSURRECTION, CHARLIE BROWN! – Charlie Brown’s friend Linus has given up on waiting for the Great Pumpkin to appear and begins holding a lonely vigil waiting for an imaginary March 4th uprising. When that March 4th event fails to materialize Linus just keeps on claiming it will happen “soon.”
HANDSY ANDY – Assorted women are fooled into thinking that Governor Andrew Cuomo, accused mass murderer of the elderly, is taking an interest in their careers only to recoil in horror when the lecherous troglodyte wants sexual favors. Continue reading
Joe Biden is just as much a “selected, not elected” figure as George W Bush was and is every bit as repulsive. Among other things, George W Bush lied the country into a war in Iraq because “they tried to kill his dad.” And the Joe Biden debacle is proving incredibly harmful to the working class and the poor in all kinds of ways.
Biden and his party continue tearing the country apart and spreading hatred and violence. And by the way – BIDEN STILL HAS KIDS IN CAGES! (But Democrats only pretended to care about those kids in order to attack Trump. You won’t hear them complain about Biden’s Kids in Cages.)
Here are links to some more items about accused rapist Joe Biden’s atrocities. It’s always fun to use the same kind of hysterical headlines for those links as the fascistic Democrats’ media outlets used with Trump.
JOE BIDEN STILL REFUSES TO DECRY GOVERNOR CUOMO’S NURSING HOME MASSACRE. “Silence is consent” as Democrats say. EMMY-WINNING GENOCIDE PRACTICED BY CUOMO!
BIDEN IS JUST FINE WITH THE CHINESE GENOCIDE AGAINST THE UIGHUR! JOE BIDEN IS A BLOOD-STAINED BUTCHER FOR SUPPORTING HIS CHINESE OWNERS’ BRUTAL POLICIES!
BIDEN AND CUOMO COVID FAILURES ARE ATROCITIES. SHEER BUTCHERY!
Independent 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
Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog finds it hilarious the way that Time recently ran an article figuratively saying “Yes, there was a conspiracy of bloated rich pigs, Big Tech and others during the forever-tainted 2020 election, but that’s a GOOD thing.” Uh. Yeah. What could go wrong with a bunch of privileged white corporate fascists and other allies of just one political party interfering with elections in order to get their desired outcome?
For the umpteenth time I will point out how this is so often the way here in the U.S. – the Powers That Be lie and insist something is NOT happening, then when too much evidence to the contrary surfaces they switch to “yes, the thing we’ve been denying DID happen but that’s a GOOD thing!”
At any rate, for imbeciles who only pay attention to news outlets that pander to their own political biases here’s a list of mock headlines about Senile Joe Biden if he was covered in the same hysterical and panicked way that de facto Third Party President Donald Trump was covered. In the text will be links to the actual items.
JOE BIDEN STILL HAS KIDS IN CAGES – Okay, for this one, I won’t bother since we all know that anti-Trump fascists only pretended to care about kids in cages just so they could attack Trump. The repulsive hypocrites are/ were fine with Biden and Obama having kids in cages. They’re also fine with Gitmo, which they pretended to hate when Obama promised to close it down over ten years ago. (PSSST. It’s STILL open.)
BIDEN HAS KIDS IN CAGES (like during Obama’s and Trump’s administrations). Oh, that’s right, anti-Trump fascists never really cared about kids being in cages, they just wanted to use those kids as a political stick to attack Trump with. Now those hypocrites are back to not even pretending to care about such things. Anti-Trumpers apparently won’t complain about Joe Biden’s kids in cages.
Already Articles of Impeachment have been filed against Biden, and the YT video of his make-believe “inauguration” has THIRTY-NINE THOUSAND DOWN-VOTES and only four thousand up-votes. Hilarious!
Well, as Senile Joe Biden launched his war on the working class by destroying thousands of jobs already and has alienated multiple U.S. allies while tear-gassing peaceful protesters here’s a reminder of what a supreme dolt the Pretender is:
