BATTLE FOR THE SOUL: ATLANTIC REPORTER’S BOOK CRITIQUES THE WEAK, INEPT AND CROOKED BARACK OBAMA

battle for the soulIn addition to The Twenty Best Books About Barack Obama And His Scandals we Independent Voters now have Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Trump, written by Atlantic reporter Edward-Isaac Dovere. (Links below.) 

Remember, I read everything from BOTH sides of the aisle, and while this book is mostly an anti-Trump account of the 2020 election it is getting advance praise for being at times even-handed enough to further puncture the pomposity of Barack Obama, the Eddie Haskell of American politics. Hilariously, though, excerpts available from the book don’t bash Obama because of his disastrous presidency’s negative impact on the U.S. as a whole, nor because of his ugly war on the working class and the poor, but because of the Obama administration’s negative impact on the Democrat Party.

I will say again that, as foolish as it is to feel “My country right or wrong” it is even MORE foolish to feel “My political party, right or wrong.” At any rate, Battle for the Soul rehashes the way Democrats lost around 1,100 offices around the country during Obama’s divisive and corrupt presidency, while Obama himself cared only about himself and about getting rich. (Tell Barack “At some point, I think you’ve made enough money.”) 

Dovere’s book depicts Obama as “a ‘parasite’ on the Democrat party who sucked it dry for his reelection and left it saddled with debt.” The former President used the party structure as a ‘host’ for his 2012 campaign for a second term then treated it like a ‘husk’ to be discarded with $2.4million in debt.”

“In actual fact, despite his ‘beatification among Democrats’, Obama ‘inadvertently helped usher in what followed him’, meaning Trump.” (NOTE FROM BALLADEER: And, as I’ve pointed out in the past, only imbeciles believe that America has ever had a “scandal-free” presidency. And from the moment Barack bubbled and gurgled up from the criminal cesspool of Chicago politics he oozed scandal and corruption constantly.) Continue reading

FACULTY LOUNGE FASCIST ROUNDUP: MAY 22nd

educa smallerIt’s the latest installment of Faculty Lounge Fascist Roundup! It’s no secret that privileged white Democrats aka “baizuos” have distorted the educational system into a partisan “church” of irrational thought and ugly intolerance. 

Their discriminatory hiring practices have long been apparent in the number of Democrats vs non-Democrats in the faculty and ESPECIALLY administrative staff. If NON-Democrats were around 90% of the staff at colleges and universities you can bet Democrat elected officials would have looked out for their constituents and addressed that imbalance and bias long ago. “Viewpoint discrimination” would be discussed everywhere with legislation addressing the issue in the news all the time. WE NEED THIRD PARTIES!

JOHN SEXTON has authored a recent examination of the many ways in which these discriminatory practices come into play, partially inspired by the Democrats’ recent hypocritical pretense that they care about the issue. CLICK HERE TO READ IT.   Continue reading

EVEN THE DEMOCRATS AT THE NEW YORK TIMES FINALLY ADMIT THE STEELE DOSSIER WAS FABRICATED PROPAGANDA

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

JOE BIDEN ATROCITY ROUNDUP: MAY 17th

biden 100 daysIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog can’t help but notice that the corrupt and senile Joe Biden has been far worse than advertised. His all-out war on the working class and the poor has inflicted untold suffering around the nation. His hate-filled and racist travel ban against India is a disgrace. Biden has been the most hate-filled and divisive president imaginable as well as being one of the worst for the poor and needy. A disaster like Joe Biden and his ilk should never be wished upon any country.

BIDEN AND CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS MORE INTERESTED IN HELPING THEIR WEALTHY FRIENDS THAN HELPING THE POOR AND NEEDY. Democrats stopped being the party of FDR and JFK long ago.

“BIDEN HAS THE WORST HUNDRED DAY START OF ANY PRESIDENT EVER”.

EVEN MORE BIDEN BEFUDDLEMENT AND INEPTITUDE.

POLL: PUBLIC RIGHTLY BLAMES BIDEN AND HIS REGIME FOR THE DISASTER AT THE SOUTHERN BORDER.

BIDEN AND HIS REGIME CONTINUE THEIR SQUASHING OF A FREE PRESS.

EVEN THE DEMOCRATS AT POLITICO “FUME” OVER BIDEN’S WAR ON THE PRESS.

BLUNDERING BIDEN CAN’T HANDLE HIS TELEPROMPTER AGAIN.

PROFOUND PIECE REFLECTS “WE DON’T HAVE A PRESIDENT”.

WHO’S IN CHARGE? A LOOK AT THE CHAOTIC AND DISASTROUS BIDEN REGIME. Continue reading

EXPLAINING LIZ CHENEY FOR OVERSEAS READERS

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

MOTHER JONES: Yeah, yeah, now before Balladeer bores us all with his usual “We need Third Parties” spiel I want to jump in with some of the latest dispatches from the front lines of the Democrats’ war on the rest of us and their pompous notions of “Democrat Exceptionalism.” Elected Republicans are awful, too, but there are countless outlets covering their atrocities.

THE REAL DIVIDE IN AMERICA: DEMOCRATS VS EVERYBODY ELSE

democrat platform hatredIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog comes to you once again from an America divided by the Democrats’ hatred and racism, just as it has been for the past five years. It’s no secret that in the United States the REAL division is not black people vs white people or gay people vs straight people or women vs men – it’s DEMOCRATS VS EVERYBODY ELSE.

Yes, people of all colors or religions, etc, can discuss anything calmly and reasonably and without hatred as long as none of them are Democrats. They may not agree, but the debates can be civil and free of vituperative accusations. However, when one or more Democrats enter the conversation, accusations of being “-ists” and “-phobes” replace facts and logic. What had been an exchange of ideas degenerates into vitriol and sanctimonious drivel.

It doesn’t help that pompous, hypocritical and snobbish Democrats actually believe in “Democrat Exceptionalism.”

*** Remember, the people who call others White Supremacists do not speak for all black people, they speak for DEMOCRATS, some of whom happen to be black.

aaaaaa

NO DEMOCRAT WOULD ALLOW THIS SIGN IN A CLASSROOM OR OFFICE.

*** People who push for “Defunding (and/or firing) The Police” do not speak for all people of color, they speak for DEMOCRATS, some of whom happen to be people of color.

*** People who insist other people must lose their jobs and/or be driven from an entire profession for expressing opinions that supposedly “offend” or “marginalize” entire groups do not speak for those entire groups, they speak only for DEMOCRATS.

*** People who oppose voter i.d. do not represent all people of color, they represent DEMOCRATS.

*** People who pretend to represent educators do not represent all educators, they represent DEMOCRATS in the education field. Democrats file complaints about or otherwise harass anyone who expresses dissenting opinions.

*** People who insist that “some males menstruate” or “some men can become pregnant” (and want everyone who disagrees to be utterly destroyed) do not represent all trans-people. They represent DEMOCRATS, who relate to every issue ONLY in terms of how much hatred and division it can be used to spread. Continue reading

AUSTRALIAN NEWS SAYS “JOE BIDEN’S STUPIDITY IS NOW A THREAT TO THE WEST”

democrat republican or awakeIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog noted that, with more and more states introducing legislation to prevent the “vote fraud by mail” scams that Democrats used in 2020 from being used in future elections, and with ongoing investigations into that vote fraud finding more and more evidence, Joe Biden and his fellow fascists decided to lie some more to distract from all that.

Senile Joe BidenAnyone who thinks that the January 6th protest against an election (that was as tainted as the 1876 and 2000 elections) was “an insurrection” or was “worse than 9-11” needs to seek professional help. 3,000 people died on 9-11. Only people who are insane or are unthinking political robots would compare the two.

BRANDON TATUM CORRECTS WHITE BBC NEWSREADER ON HIS FALSE ASSUMPTIONS

Brandon Tatum, a Martin Luther King Person of Courage, heroically corrected the many false statements made by a BBC newsreader regarding policing in the U.S. As usual, the self-appointed “white savior” media buffoon did not know how to handle a strong man of color who pushed back against the astonishingly incorrect assumptions that are made by so many people overseas and here at home. The 4 minute and 40 second video is below. 

brandon tatum picI can certainly understand Tatum’s surprise at how uninformed the newsreader is. I’m often amazed myself at the way people who don’t live here presume to know more than we do about political and social situations in the country where we live. I sometimes remind overseas people who condescendingly spout wrong information like this that they do not get an accurate view from the brief, isolated sniglets of “news” (LMAO) that they see. It’s why you never see me telling people in other countries how they should feel about events in their home nations. 

I don’t live there and therefore I’m not immersed in the actual situation on the ground like they are, and I realize that the bite-sized morsels of information offered up by the world’s notoriously shallow and divisive media outlets are not providing a full, in-depth view. To keep it light-hearted, it would be like offering an opinion on the elaborate plotlines of Game of Thrones based purely on commercials you’ve seen about the show. Continue reading
