Joe Biden senileNot even the Democrats’ many, many media outlets can censor ALL the reports regarding the latest explosive revelations about the Joe Biden Crime Family and its Underboss Hunter Biden. The Democrats at social media outlets have been working overtime to provide cover for the Biden campaign on the scandals.

Joe Biden really senileIt’s easier to find the story in which the Boilermakers Union publicly corrected Senile Joe Biden when he lied about getting their endorsement than it is to find the full details about the Biden/ Burisma scandal. (The union really endorsed Trump)

At Facebook, one of the Democrat-run social media sites trying to censor the Biden emails story, their Global Policy Manager for “content regulation” AKA CENSORSHIP is Biden associate Anna Makanju, WHO ADVISED JOE BIDEN ABOUT UKRAINE POLICY WHEN HE WAS VICE PRESIDENT AND THE BURISMA SCANDAL’S SEEDS WERE SOWN. Is Anna mentioned in some of the unpublished documents? I don’t know but a reasonable person might well wonder.

And as if Joe Biden’s lies and corruption weren’t revolting enough, here’s Australian news with ANOTHER reminder of how the American media is trying to shore up Senile Joe and his campaign:

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 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

Hidin’ Biden, who needed WHO KNOWS how many takes to slap together his edited Democrat Convention acceptance speech, is still the gift that keeps on giving. Here are some more of the sexual harassing idiot’s screwups over the years:

masc graveyard newWHO CHECKS THE “FACT CHECKERS?” It’s no secret that the Democrats have transformed every aspect of life into an ugly political situation. “The personal is the political” is the shallow line that they have pushed for decades now in order to justify the insertion of their political prejudices into the lives of everyone around them.

“Education” (LMAO), news reporting and Social Media fell to Democrat power politics long ago, especially the Democrats’ discriminatory hiring practices and tendency to want people fired or censored for expressing ANY opinion with which even the most emotionally fragile Democrat disagrees. Therefore it came as no surprise that Teacher’s Unions, media outlets and Social Media tycoons make their political donations almost exclusively to Democrat candidates. 

One of the biggest downsides to this has been the death of ANY attempt at objectivity. No “experts” or “authorities” or – most ridiculously of all – “fact checkers” are to be trusted anymore. Self-proclaimed Fact Checkers serve no purpose except confirmation bias for their target audience.

Sharyl AttkissonSharyl Attkisson, the Ida Tarbell of the 21st Century, has done a deep dive into the biases and prejudices of “fact checking.” The link is below, but first some excerpts:

“That discord is likely to persist because in large part the fact-checking solution is illusory. Many such efforts fail because they amount to a circular feedback loop of verification. The fact-checkers are like-minded journalists or often liberal Silicon Valley gatekeepers, who frequently rely on partisan news sources and political activists to control narratives on a wide variety of issues and controversies. This small group of players exerts an oversized influence, using fact checks to shape and censor information.” 

In that same article Attkisson covered one of Twitter’s absurd “fact checks” … about a hypothetical situation that hasn’t even happened (or not happened) yet – 

“Like many questionable “fact checks” at issue, Twitter’s critique wasn’t really a fact check at all. It used past reporting from selected partisan news sources to claim that a prediction about what could happen in the future is untrue — before it even happens or doesn’t happen. It was, in short, a Democratic Party talking point.”

” … today’s brand of “fact-checking” is rarely cut and dry, such as verifying the date an event occurred. Now, fact checks are frequently used to litigate matters of opinion or debate, and to proclaim the truth about facts that are unknown, or cannot possibly be known, at the time. They commonly provide what they call the “context” they claim is necessary to assess a factual claim, rather than a simple assessment of whether a statement is correct or incorrect. As a result, many factually correct statements are deemed to be “half true” or “mostly false.”  “

“Keeping this in mind, the biggest inherent flaw with efforts to fact-check information may lie in the qualifications, bias, and conflicts of interest among the ranks of the fact-checkers themselves. One example is the fact-checking nonprofit First Draft, started by Google at the beginning of the 2016 election cycle. Google is owned by Alphabet, Inc. Alphabet executives and employees comprise a politically active group that ranks among the largest political donors to Democrats in the country. During the 2016 campaign, Alphabet was led by an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter and campaign volunteer, executive chairman Eric Schmidt.” Continue reading

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsEvery former Democrat like me who has chosen to #WALKAWAY always experiences deja vu when they see others finally noticing and objecting to the way Democrats have become so unhinged that they’ve turned every aspect of life into a political battlefield. And they want everyone who disagrees with them destroyed, personally and professionally.

Various hardcore anti-Trump reporters have shown integrity by objecting to the crazed, rabid propaganda that their colleagues have been churning out, especially following the riots over George Floyd’s death. The police behavior involved in that death was so blatantly out of line that for a few brief moments the nation was united in sadness and outrage.

Pelosi and Schumer and Kente clothA nation united is something that Democrats can not stand to see, and even though the Minneapolis officers involved were quickly fired and/or facing charges the Democrats and their media outlets rapidly transformed the situation into hate-filled riots and looting that raged for days.   

The Tom Cotton op-ed at the New York Times and what followed erupted into what some journalists have called “civil wars” in newsrooms across the country between rational reporters and their unhinged colleagues. Links are below, but first some excerpts from journalists whose anti-Trump credentials cannot be questioned.

First up, female journalist Bari Weiss:

Bari Weiss


The civil war inside The New York Times between the (mostly young) wokes the (mostly 40+) liberals is the same one raging inside other publications and companies across the country. The dynamic is always the same. (Thread.)

The Old Guard lives by a set of principles we can broadly call civil libertarianism. They assumed they shared that worldview with the young people they hired who called themselves liberals and progressives. But it was an incorrect assumption.

The New Guard has a different worldview, one articulated best by @JonHaidt and @glukianoff. They call it “safetyism,” in which the right of people to feel emotionally and psychologically safe trumps what were previously considered core liberal values, like free speech … there are dozens and dozens of examples.

I’ve been mocked by many people over the past few years for writing about the campus culture wars. They told me it was a sideshow. But this was always why it mattered: The people who graduated from those campuses would rise to power inside key institutions and transform them. (NOTE FROM BALLADEER: LINK TO MY PIECES ABOUT THAT SITUATION HERE )

I’m in no way surprised by what has now exploded into public view. In a way, it’s oddly comforting: I feel less alone and less crazy trying to explain the dynamic to people. What I am shocked by is the speed. I thought it would take a few years, not a few weeks.

Next up is Michael Tracey:

The NYT and other media institutions are being held hostage by millennials whose belief system includes such precepts as, “Publishing something I disagree with physically endangers me.” They use bizarre emotional manipulation tactics to assert their dominance. And they’re winning.

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsBalladeer’s Blog previously examined the thoroughly bizarre suspicions regarding two terrible U.S. Presidents – Barack Obama and George W Bush. Yes, I always made it clear that I despised them both but I also did blog posts about the ridiculously overstated accusations made against them. Examples include Obama supposedly being “a Muslim sleeper agent” and George W Bush supposedly having a hand in the death of John F Kennedy Jr.

When it comes to de facto Third Party President Donald Trump, his gibbering detractors have set the record for behaving like slobbering psychopaths who will make contradictory accusations against him on a daily basis. Even more pathetically, anti-Trump loons suffer from so much impotent outrage that they even encourage and enact violence against Trump supporters

Obama kids in cagesTrump and his supporters are often called Nazis by cowardly hypocrites who would wet their pants in terror if they ever encountered REAL Nazis. The nauseating anti-Trumpers even pretended to care about “kids in cages” until they learned that Obama and Bush pursued that policy before Trump came along.

Donald Trump never called racist till running against DemocratsEven the pro-Obama clowns at Snopes admit Obama incredibly erred by turning over illegal immigrant children to CHILD TRAFFICKERS! Links below.

I’ve always made it clear that I’m not saying ALL people who oppose President Trump are hate-filled, frothing-at-the-mouth fascists.  There ARE people who are capable of simply stating why they can’t stand the Donald and disagree with his policies. You know … like adults.

Joe Biden is creepyThank you to the Bernie Bros who reminded me of this. Joe Biden is STILL being called everything from senile to demented to a sexual assailant (#DROPOUTBIDEN is trending over the latest evidence). “Hidin’ Biden” has resorted to trying to bluff his way through softball appearances ONLY with fawning Democrats in the media.

Joe Biden senileSenile Joe’s cognitive problems are such that even with the most delicate of handling he continues to gibber on camera. To quote one of his recent disordered babblings (link below):

“Um, you know there’s a, uh, during World War II, uh, you know, where Roosevelt came up with a thing, that uh, you know, was totally different, than a, than the, he called it the, you know, the WWII, he had the War Production Board.” Continue reading

Sharyl AttkissonIt’s no secret that Sharyl Attkisson is one of the few actual journalists left in the United States.

Her lawsuit over illegal action against her by the DOJ is ongoing but she continues to bravely follow the truth no matter where it leads her. 

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsAttkisson has been compiling a list of the most egregious errors (some might call them intentional misrepresentations) committed by “reporters” in the last few years. Again, she just covers the inaccuracies from alleged “news” sites, not the ramblings of shallow, uninformed and emotionally unstable entertainers. Her list would be much longer otherwise.

To quote Attkisson, who is considerate enough to lump herself in with her colleagues, who have lapsed into much lower standards than she herself maintains: Continue reading

Trump smiling very biglyThe Democrats at NPR and PBS were forced to admit that their own poll’s results showed that Americans trust the administration of de facto Third Party President Donald Trump more than they trust the media and congress. Link below.

And with the latest network “news” scandal in which they tried passing off footage from KENTUCKY as footage showing attacks on Kurds it’s no wonder.

*** And by the way, even REUTERS has admitted that Trump’s enforcement of immigration policies has led to HIGHER WAGES FOR WORKING CLASS AMERICANS. Reuters being Reuters, however, they slanted the story about how the poor, poor oil companies are forced to pay higher wages since they can’t acquire illegals as easily as they used to. Link below.  Continue reading

masc chair and bottleHere at Balladeer’s Blog my skepticism of polling during such an odd time period is well known. In fact, bizarrely enough, I’d like to see a poll regarding how many people distrust polls!

Anyway, a recent poll (link below) found 95% of the respondents were distrustful of the corporate media (and with very good reason). Some of the reasons cited were “spreading fake news”, “propaganda instead of news”, “reporting gossip” and “celebrity opinions.”

On the plus side it’s nice to see that mass media dishonesty has united the rest of us. Getting 95% of the public in any poll to agree on something is the kind of thing that only monumental dishonesty could engender. Continue reading
