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

CHICAGO IS STILL THE MOST CORRUPT CITY IN AMERICA

democrat republican awakeRegular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are familiar with the way I refer to “the Chicago cesspool” of political corruption. Well, in the recent study by UIC the Windy Cesspool remains the most corrupt city in America! From 1976 to 2018 there were 1,750 political corruption CONVICTIONS in Chicago. So that’s not even counting the many times the city’s corrupt machine thwarted justice.

Los Angeles was in 2nd place with over 1,500 corruption convictions in that same time period. New York City was in 3rd place. All three cities are Democrat-run, and in Chicago’s case the city has had NO Republican mayor since 1931.

#WalkAwayI emphasize this for overseas readers who seem to think that only America’s Republicans are criminals, when in fact BOTH Democrat AND Republican career politicians are white-collar criminals.

For the link to the study Continue reading

UKRAINIAN PROSECUTOR FILES OFFICIAL COMPLAINT AGAINST JOE BIDEN FOR GETTING HIM FIRED FOR INVESTIGATING BIDEN’S SON

Joe Biden brags about blackmailing the UkraineHere at Balladeer’s Blog I often point out that American career politicians are nothing but career criminals. Democrat Joe Biden, head of the so-called Biden Crime Family, often comes to mind when American political corruption is discussed.

An official complaint demanding an investigation of Joe Biden was filed by Victor Shokin, the prosecutor that Biden bragged about getting fired by threatening to withhold aid to the Ukraine when Shokin was investigating Quid Pro Joe’s son Hunter for his alleged influence-peddling scam via Burisma.

Per the French source Les Crisis (link below), the complaint reads in part:

“Throughout the last months of 2015 and the first months of 2016 Joseph Biden, taking advantage of his position, came several times on official visits to Ukraine in order to negotiate with the leaders of the country my eviction and, consequently, the closing of the objective investigation into the offenses committed by persons associated with the company “Burisma Holding Limited” (Cyprus), including the son of the aforementioned US official. (NOTE FROM BALLADEER: That “son” is Hunter Biden.)

mascot new look donkey and elephant heads“Due to continued pressure from the Vice President of the United States Joseph Biden to oust me from the job by blackmailing the allocation of financial assistance, I, as the man who places the State interests above my personal interests, I agreed to abandon the post of Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

“After my resignation caused by illegal pressure, no active investigation into the offenses concerning the company “Burisma Holding Limited” (Cyprus) was carried out and, therefore, the persons implicated in these offenses were not identified, nor arrested or charged.

“According to the conclusions of the International Law Association of 18.04.2017, made by the doctor of law, Professor O.O. Merezhko, at the time vice-president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the request of the Vice-President of the United States Joseph Biden concerning my ousting from the post of the Attorney General of Ukraine as a condition for the granting of financial (economic) assistance is qualified as pressure, which represents interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine on the part of a foreign power in violation of one of the principles of international law.

PETER SCHWEIZER’S LATEST BOOK ON POLITICAL CORRUPTION MAKES THE TOP FOUR OF ALL TIME LIST

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsPeter Schweizer’s 2018 non-fiction book regarding the way that the rival gangs of white-collar criminals called Democrats and Republicans have raised graft and illegality to new levels has been named the Fourth Best Book of All Time at Exposing Political Corruption. That’s from BookAuthority.com.

Secret EmpiresThe book is titled SECRET EMPIRES: HOW THE AMERICAN POLITICAL CLASS HIDES CORRUPTION AND ENRICHES FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Schweizer pulls no punches and – as Balladeer’s Blog loves to see – details corruption by BOTH the Democrats and Republicans. Have I mentioned lately that we need Third Parties? Yeah, I thought I had.   

Joe Biden’s notoriously crooked family is examined in great detail, not just from his involvement in the corrupt and scandal-ridden Obama Administration but from his own brand of (characteristically) awkward and ham-fisted influence-peddling.

Mitch McConnell (R), China, gets blistered as well over his apparent presence in the pockets of Big Money from overseas. Jared Kushner, the Fredo Corleone of the Trump Administration, is also exposed as the would-be graft-grabber he has long seemed to be.

Democrat and Republican office-holders are just part of the story as Schweizer also looks at bloated rich pig “political donors” like George Soros, the Koch Brothers, Tom Steyer and others who own America’s bought and paid-for office-holders.

TRUMP STILL HARASSED BY “MURKY” MUELLER AND HIS WITCH-HUNT

American FlagHere at Balladeer’s Blog I am appreciating all the history we are living through right now. America has its first de facto Third Party President in Donald Trump. He is being attacked from all sides by crooks just like Bernie Sanders or ANY OTHER outsider would have been.

The Office of Special Counsel was originally established as a safeguard. Unfortunately Republican Newt Gingrich ruined it with his Snipe Hunts against Bill Clinton in the 1990s. Then, since the Democrats can out-do the Republicans a hundred-fold when it comes to corrupting any and all governmental functions we now see them using the ongoing Witch-Hunt against President Trump as a Soft Coup.

The ridiculous “investigation” (LMAO) into non-existent Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign has cancerously spread into a network of America’s corrupt politicians from BOTH PARTIES trying to drive out an outsider (Trump). They are leaving reasonable people with no reason to accept ANY findings that Murky Mueller and his Funky Bunch of Hillary Donors fabricate come up with.

It may result in an American version of the many European conflicts of the past over supposed “illegitimate” monarchs. Mueller has no credibility and I cannot blame anyone who would refuse to accept ANYTHING he tries to pin on Trump. (But if he finds something on Jared Kushner, the Fredo Corleone of the Trump Administration I have to admit I probably wouldn’t object. I might not even be able to stop laughing.) 

MUELLER’S CLOWN CAR OF CORRUPTION

Russian collusionIt’s no secret that the longer Mueller’s make-believe investigation (LMAO) goes on the more it has become apparent how Barack Obama imposed Chicago-Style Corruption in every governmental agency. And I mean EVERY.

Obama and Hillary expected her to win, in which case the subsequent chaos exposing her and Obama never would have happened. All their corruption would have been tucked away and hidden. It’s clear that all of this is one reason why Barack and his fellow crooks paniced when President Trump won.

Mueller’s ugly campaign against Flynn exposed how biased and one-sided Comey and Mueller are. Hillary and select “aides” were not put under oath when THEY were questioned by the FBI (Fuggedda Bout Integrity), which saved them from ever getting accused of “lying to the FBI” like Flynn – who WAS put under oath. Nice how that works out for crooked functionaries like Mueller.

THE CLOWNS: We’ll start with Robert “Hillary Donor” Mueller. His crooked buddy – former FBI Director James Comey – ADMITTED TO A CRIME, namely leaking a  memo. After some Salem Witch Trials-level judicial prestidigitation DemCorp and RepubCorp decided Trump must have done SOMETHING wrong and Murky Mueller was appointed Boss Clown of this travesty of a Special Counsel’s Office.

Even CNN was forced to admit Mueller loaded his staff with Hillary Clinton DONORS. A reasonable person might conclude Mueller’s staff is strictly out for vengeance on President Trump because Crooked Hillary lost to him. There’s also a senior advisor to Obama’s corrupt lackey Eric “Fast and Furious” Holder. THIS STAFF MAY SOUND LIKE AN ORGANIZED CRIME GANG BUT THEY’RE THE “INVESTIGATORS.” 

Peter StrzokPETER STRZOK (Pronounced “Strzok”) – This clown proved that there actually ARE grotesque ethical violations that – once sufficiently publicized – WILL force Murky Mueller and his Funky Bunch to pretend they’re going to do something about it. Strzok was – by his own social media accounts – a Hillary shoe-shine boy and bears a pathological hatred of President Trump. It redefines “sleaze” that this bizarre little man was allowed to be part of both the coverup of Hillary Clinton’s crimes and the investigation of the man who defeated her in the election.

And I didn’t even mention the ongoing investigation into Strzok and the “anti-Trump insurance policy.” The American “Intelligence Community,” folks!

ANDREW WEISMANN – This Mueller thug has been caught encouraging sabotage in the Department of Justice by communicating praise to the now-disgraced (and by the Supreme Court, no less) former Acting Attorney General Sally “Obama Lackey” Yates. Yep. Nothing wrong at all with having the losing team trying to undermine and/or overthrow the winner.

BRUCE G OHR – Rosenstein lackey Ohr was demoted recently over his alleged involvement in the fabricated Steele Intelligence Dossier, the bizarre gossip in which was used as the flimsy justification for FISA warrants to electronically monitor the incoming President Trump and … well, as we’ve seen, apparently anyone else Obama and Hillary had a grudge against or thought they could use to trump up charges against the man who defeated Crooked Hillary.

AND REMEMBER THE MAFIA-STLE WORDPLAY THAT OBAMA AND HILLARY’S THUGS USED ON THE STAND TO PRETEND PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS WRONG ABOUT BEING WIRETAPPED? SINCE IT TURNS OUT THAT THE TERM “WIRETAPPING” IS NO LONGER USED TO DESCRIBE THE TYPE OF ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE THAT TRUMP AND HIS STAFF AND FAMILY WERE SUBJECTED TO, THE SWAMP-CREATURES IN WASHINGTON’S CESSPOOL OF CORRUPTION TRIED USING THAT TO JUSTIFY WHAT A REASONABLE PERSON MIGHT CALL “LYING ON THE STAND.”

Throw in GPS Fusion and how many people – like Bruce Ohr’s wife – tied to IT are also being found to be connected to Murky Mueller’s SERIOUSLY compromised gang of “investigators”  (LMAO) and it makes it clear that assorted Banana Republics could point and laugh at what has been going on in the U.S. under those rival gangs of white-collar criminals called Democrats and Republicans.

Yes, Europeans, I know you hate Donald Trump so here’s another political pose you can affect to avoid having to say anything good about him: “The Americans have no grounds to ever talk about the supposed integrity of their political process now that Donald Trump of all people has been proven more honest than any American career politicians!”     Continue reading

TRUMP CARDS II

Mascot with demo and repub headsWhile “Murky” Mueller and his Funky Bunch of Hillary donors continue to prove what a joke their “investigation” is, Balladeer’s Blog takes a look at more Trump Cards. 

But by the way, don’t you love how the new motto of the FBI (Fuggedda Bout Integrity) is “First we COMMIT the crimes, then we INVESTIGATE the crimes, and if you slip us enough incentive sometimes we’ll agree to SOLVE those crimes!”

Michelle Obama*** Anyway, our de facto Third Party President Donald Trump nicely overturned another idiotic policy from Michelle Obama by restoring the choice of chocolate milk for children at schools. It’s a small thing but the fact that that hopelessly embittered woman tried keeping chocolate milk from kids is so typical.

Thankfully now we have a sophisticated First Lady like Melania Trump who SPEAKS MORE LANGUAGES THAN BOTH OBAMAS COMBINED. 

Keith Olbermann*** As expected the Supreme Court AGAIN upheld President Trump’s travel restrictions. I only point this out because the hilariously uninformed people who hate Trump have such short attention spans they always celebrate the pointless challenges as if those ungrounded challenges “prove” Trump did something wrong. 

Elizabeth Warren interns*** A Think Progress Op-Ed recently blasted Faux-cahontas aka PRIVILEGED WHITE WOMAN SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN, who deceptively exploited minority set-asides by pretending to be 1-32nd Cherokee. The Tribe Warren claimed descent from REJECTED that claim long ago which is why President Trump delights in calling the repulsive Warren “Pocahontas.”

Deranged Trump-haters always feign outrage over that but conveniently overlook Warren’s offense, which denied academic employment to deserving minority women. Anyway, the Op-Ed is titled I AM A CHEROKEE WOMAN – ELIZABETH WARREN IS NOT, if you’re interested. Continue reading

DEMOCRAT CRIME FAMILY: DONNA BRAZILLE’S BOOK TELLS ALL ABOUT HILLARY AND DNC CORRUPTION

Donna BrazilleHere at Balladeer’s Blog I am still having the time of my life watching all of the white collar criminals called Democrats and Republicans rolling on each other. The latest is former DNC Consigliere Donna Brazille, the ABC “News Woman” (LMFAO) who admitted to feeding Hillary Clinton advance questions going into the televised debates last year.  

Hillary Clinton creepyDonna succeeded Hillary Clinton stooge Deborah Wasserman-Schultz as Consigliere and she has her own book out now about Clinton and DNC corruption. It will come as no surprise to my fellow aficionados of American “tell-all” books about political corruption that Brazille’s work is the typically self-serving wallow.

Donna insists she was “Shocked! Shocked I tell you” – as Louis in Casablanca would say – at how thoroughly Hillary had corrupted the Democrat National Committee.  Wide-eyed Ms Brazille lays out a lot of details on how Obama and Hillary put the DNC so heavily in debt AND how Hillary and her underlings used the DNC apparatus to rob Bernie Sanders of the Democrat Presidential Nomination last year.   Continue reading

THE IMRAN AWAN SCANDAL DEEPENS

Imran and schultz and hillaryHere at Balladeer’s Blog I am still relishing the way that the bought and paid for Democrats and Republicans continue trying to act like everything is fine as the fundamentally corrupt nature of our government’s “Swamp” is laid bare.

Even people who hate our de facto Third Party President Donald Trump can get into the dark comedy being played out now that an outsider is in the White House. No matter how much Anti-Trump passion you feel, you can still comment on the current craziness like so:

POSE ONE: “I cannot abide that uncouth lout Trump but the actions of his enemies in both parties has laid bare what a cesspool of corruption the Democrats and Republicans have created.”

POSE TWO: “As much as I can’t stand Donald Trump he’s looking almost honest compared to the Democrats and Republicans in Congress.”

POSE THREE (Recommended for Europeans in particular): “The Americans should be embarrassed that Donald Trump of all people is emerging as the most honest figure in their make-believe representative democracy.”

There you go! All the snarkiness you love but without the embarrassment of siding with the career criminals called Democrats and Republicans!

In any event, here is a terrific list of questions now needing answered about the whole Imran Awan/ Democratic National Committee/ Debbie Wasserman Schultz affair: (link below)

1. Who coordinated the hiring of the Awan brothers by dozens of Democratic Congressman?

2. Why were they so grossly overcompensated (millions of dollars) for no work?
3. Were they kicking back money to the Democrats, doing “dirty” work for them, or blackmailing them?
4. Why did Wasserman-Schultz keep the Capitol Police from searching her laptop they had confiscated from Imran Awan?
5. Why did Wasserman-Schultz keep him on her payroll after the Capitol Police further barred him and his brothers from accessing Congressional computers?
6. Why did the Iraqi fugitive and Hizb’allah supporter Dr. Ali-al Attar “lend” them $100,000?
7. Who is paying Chris Gowan, a Clinton insider, to represent Imran Awan?
8. Why did the Awan brothers continue to have security clearances when they had declared several bankruptcies and were engaged in financial misdealing?
9. Why were the Awans broke when they were making so much money and living so modestly?
10. Why did eight members of the House Permanent Select committee on Intelligence issue a letter demanding the Awans be granted access to Top Secret information?
11.Were the Awans working for Pakistani intelligence and the Moslem Brotherhood?
12. To whom were the Awans sending data to on an offsite server?

POLL RESULT: TRUMP IS THE MOST HONEST BILLIONAIRE OF ALL TIME

doctor-evil-and-mini-me

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin.

Yes, seemingly every little piss-ant outfit imaginable runs their own poll these days so I figured Balladeer’s Blog might as well get in on the action.

97% of the respondents said they considered Donald Trump to be the most honest billionaire in history since Hillary Clinton and her owner George Soros haven’t been able to dredge up anything at all on him that is even a fraction as ugly as the daily revelations about Hillary and her fellow white collar criminals in DemCorp. The other 3% were killed by drones before they could answer.

119% of the respondents said that Chelsea Clinton really does kinda resemble Webb Hubbell.

78% of the respondents said they believed that Hillary Clinton has committed more crimes than all of the African-American voters she described as “Super Predators” put together.

Out of 1,312 Muslim jihadists 1,091 preferred to see Hillary Clinton become president, 212 accused her of being secretly Jewish and 9 accused ME of being secretly Jewish.

100% of recent American college graduates, when asked who they preferred to see become president, replied “President of what?” Continue reading
