TRUMP HATERS HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING OF A PRESIDENT’S POWERS

donald-trump-and-flagThe irrational hysteria felt by haters of Donald Trump has surpassed Y2K levels at this point and it is HILARIOUS!

THERE IS NO BETTER PROOF THAT TRUMP HATERS ARE TOO STUPID TO UNDERSTAND THEIR OWN COUNTRY’S POLITICAL SYSTEM! TRUMP CANNOT POSSIBLY DO THE THINGS THE FOOLS WHO HATE HIM THINK HE CAN DO!

YOU MIGHT AS WELL WORRY IF TRUMP WILL OVERTURN THE RULES OF GRAVITY OR DECREE THAT WATER WILL NO LONGER FEEL WET. GROW UP AND LEARN SOMETHING ABOUT THE PRESIDENCY. NO HUMAN BEING COULD DO A WORSE JOB THAN OBAMA, ANYWAY.

MARIKAS (421 B.C.) – ANCIENT GREEK COMEDY

EupolisBalladeer’s Blog presents another look at an ancient Greek Comedy. This time around it’s one written by Eupolis who – along with Aristophanes and Cratinus – was one of the Big Three of Attic Old Comedy.

MARIKAS (c 421 B.C.) – This was the second comedy to emerge in the new subgenre of Attic Old Comedy called “the Demagogue Comedy”. Aristophanes led the way a few years earlier with The Knights, his comedy attacking the politician Cleon. The play Marikas finds Eupolis attacking the demagogue Hyperbolus, whose reputation for character assassination by way of overstatement lives on in our language by way of the word “hyperbole”.  

As with most ancient Greek comedies Marikas has survived only in fragmentary form. Those fragments, along with contemporary references in surviving works, provide what is known about the play. Marikas, the title character, was used by Eupolis to represent the politician Hyperbolus the same way Aristophanes had used the Paphlagonian to represent Cleon in The Knights.

The ancient Greek comedies made a point of breaking the fourth wall on a regular basis (despite the way so many people have convinced themselves that that is a “postmodern” development) and Marikas opened up with a character assuring the audience that the play they were about to see was NOT just a rehashing of The Knights.

A REMINDER FROM PAT CADDELL ABOUT HOW LUCKY WE ARE HILLARY WAS DEFEATED

Pat Caddell always manages to put things perfectly. Today, as we mark how fortunate we are that Hillary “Couldn’t Even Win Twenty States” Clinton is not our next president, enjoy Caddell’s masterpiece video from election day back in November.

Soak it in again and remember ALL the reasons why Hillary was rejected.

OBAMA FLUSHED DOWN THE WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY

Obama fail

The confused, uncomprehending face of utter incompetence.

Hopefully once Inauguration Day is over the hysterical fools of what passes for the American Left these days will calm down a little and leave the rest of us alone for awhile.

I’m going to be 100% sincere in this blog post. It’s rare that I do that, and regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know I’m almost always being tongue-in-cheek or just plain sarcastic.  

Barack Obama has been a disaster. He lived up to his crooked pre-presidential existence with an administration so corrupt that even the corporate media finally imploded. They abandoned any and all pretense of objectivity and openly considered themselves part of the Obama administration in their desperation to cover up for the weak, inept and crooked little man.

Hit the road barack

So say we all.

The most recent example was the way the DemoKKKrats’ media outlets allowed Obama to get away with his outright lie that his administration was “scandal-free.” That utterly ridiculous piece of fantasy and propaganda is all the proof any rational person needs regarding the extreme bias of our corporate media.

ALL presidents have had scandals in their administrations. I don’t have a “favorite” president but the one I feel had the longest-lasting positive impact was Franklin Roosevelt, yet you’ll never hear me try to claim his administration was “scandal-free.” Such talk is for fiction, not rational, adult conversation.

The media’s sycophantic willingness to go along with Obama’s lies and distortions for eight years shows why they are now so despised and distrusted and why the man they clearly hated was elected president. Barack Obama was a menace because he didn’t understand how little he actually knew and how meager his talents were.

Obama was the worst president the United States has ever had and I don’t say that lightly. I won’t rehash all the reasons why, because I’ve written about all of those reasons over the past few years. People who try to present Obama as anything but a failure tend to be people whose own comments make it clear they have no knowledge of history and no grasp of how the U.S. government works.

Before ObamacareObama embodied the shallowness and immaturity of his supporters, most of whom were such petty, celebrity-obsessed fools that they fixated on their president because his name and office were the only things they seemed to comprehend about the country. Future African American presidents will no doubt be much more capable than the Hollow Man named Barack Obama.

His childish refusal to work with Congress while having no problem working with dictatorships and mad Muslim Mullahs left him with no true legacy. Instead of negotiating with the opposition party Barack petulantly resorted to a series of inept and often ineffective Executive Orders, more than all previous presidents combined.

Many of those spiteful, poorly thought-out Executive Orders were eventually struck down by the Supreme Court and rightfully so. The rest can be undone with the stroke of a pen by our incoming president.

Barack Obama has left the United States and the world far worse off than when he took office. We are all better off for being rid of him. There is nothing good to be said about him. The best description of him came from the other world leaders at the G20 summit when they called Obama “an irrelevant child.” May this vain and pathetic creature suffer at least a fraction of the pain he inflicted on so many innocent people.

TRUMP AND HIS FOES: THE LATEST

Mascot with demo and repub heads

We’re all sick of talking about the election but unfortunately DemoKKKrats and Illiberals are still throwing their childish fits every waking moment. They are unable to deal with the reality that de facto Third Party Candidate Donald Trump defeated the career criminal Hillary Clinton, who didn’t even win twenty states. (We have 50 states, not 57 like Obama foolishly thought.) 

mason-weaverFORMER BLACK PANTHER Mason Weaver joined the countless African Americans speaking out on Trump’s behalf to counter the absurd and frantic screeching of DemoKKKrats and clueless, uninformed celebrities.

In reply to Democrat Congressman John “Do you know who I AM” Lewis irrationally pretending Trump is an illegitimate president, Weaver called Lewis an “illegitimate Congressman” who, alongside other Democrats “presided over the destruction of black people.”   

He joined the oppressors (Democrats) and became a stooge for them,” Weaver said of Lewis, who is “now sitting and presiding over the destruction of the black community; the destruction of black men; the destruction of black women, with drugs and gangs.” 

Weaver called on Congressman Lewis to “apologize” to the American people for joining the Democratic “party of abuse,” which has “always been the party of the Klan; the party that went to war to keep slaves; the party that’s always been the destruction of black people.”

Congressman Lewis “has gotten rich and his people have gotten poorer,” Weaver said. “The black (Congressional) caucus has gotten more power and influence, and the black people they preside over have gotten poorer — more drugs, more gangs, less businesses, less home ownership, less education, more jails.”

marco-rubioMARCO RUBIO, ONE OF THE FAILED REPUBLICANS that Trump scraped off the bottom of his shoe during the primaries, displayed far less backbone than Mason Weaver, however.

Demonstrating the cringing, crawling cravenness that marks all Republicans except Trump (who isn’t even really a Republican, thankfully) Rubio added his own prepubescent whining to the DemoKKKrat chorus criticizing Trump for clashing with John “Please say you remember me” Lewis. They don’t call Marco Rubio “the Pipsqueak” for nothing! Continue reading

MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY WOMEN OF COURAGE

martin-luther-kingNo institution has been more racist than the Democrat Party. Democrats championed slavery and fought for its spread into the new territories and an entire Civil War was fought on behalf of the interests of Democrat slave-owners.

Democrats in Congress tried to sabotage Abraham Lincoln’s war effort against slavery. Still more Democrats formed the Ku Klux Klan after the Civil War and continued harassing and oppressing African Americans for several decades. Democrats masterminded Jim Crow injustices.

Democrat Roger B Taney, a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, authored the atrocious Dred Scott Decision claiming African-Americans were not people. Democrat President Andrew Jackson’s oppression of Native Americans included the Trail of Tears and other atrocities.

Martin Luther King – whose birthday is observed throughout this holiday weekend – was, like Abraham Lincoln, a Republican. Democrats continue promoting race-hatred to this very day and try to downplay the fact that King was a Republican.

Some of the most courageous champions of Doctor King’s dream of a society in which people are judged by their character rather than their skin color are PEOPLE OF COLOR WHO DARE TO DEFY THE WHITE LIBERALS WHO DOMINATE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. Here is a look at some of those heroic women. I will cover the men separately.

crystal-wrightCRYSTAL WRIGHT

Ms Wright runs her own website and makes personal appearances around the country. Race-baiting Democrats always harass people like her who are brave enough to form their own political opinions despite the condescending disapproval of hate-filled American Liberals. The vile abuse that Democrats throw at her for defying them will disgust you.   Continue reading

MUSLIM ATROCITY ROUNDUP: JANUARY 16th

islam-failAs always Muslim fanatics continue to kill and kill and kill in countries all around the world. They’ve been doing it for CENTURIES but the Left-Wing Archie Bunkers who pretend to be “educators” in the Western World try their best to obscure that fact. They also try to whitewash Islam’s history of slavery as well, plus its misogyny, homophobia and oppression of religious minorities.

January 1st: Kareto, Nigeria – Boko Haram, the local franchise of the Global Muslim Fascist Murder Machine, BEHEADED 15 innocent people.

January 1st: Nertiti, Sudan – Muslim fascists machine-gunned 11 innocent people to death and injured SIXTY more while attacking them in their own homes.

January 7th: Kwayine, Nigeria – Islamofascists stormed a village and killed 10 innocent people just for being non-Muslims. COEXISTENCE!

January 13th: Madagali, Nigeria – Four female Muslim suicide bombers killed 9 innocent people and injured over 15 more.

January 6th: Fort Lauderdale, Florida – A Muslim fascist killed 5 innocent people and injured 6 more. Obama still claims there have been no such incidents on U.S. soil during his presidency. Continue reading
