TRUMP CREATES ORGANIZATION TO HELP THE VICTIMS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT VIOLENCE

map-of-crime-and-democratsSomething that Trump-Haters don’t understand is the fact that, unlike California President Hillary Clinton would be doing, he expresses sympathy for the VICTIMS of illegal immigrants who repeatedly commit violent crimes. It has been extensively documented that many of those Felons Without Borders were caught multiple times during the Obama years but were simply released over and over again.

Donald Trump, as a de facto Third Party President, took an action that NO Democrat or Republican president would ever have taken. He diverted taxpayer funds AWAY from lawyers for illegal immigrant felons and into VOICE, a support organization for the victims of illegal immigrant crime. Continue reading

MUSLIM ATROCITY ROUNDUP: FEBRUARY 24th

islam-sharia-free-zoneSweden is still in turmoil from all the Muslim violence, rioting and raping that America’s corporate media pretends isn’t happening. If anyone is skeptical about the Muslim actions there I will be glad to add Sweden to the list of nations where I cover Muslim atrocities.

Islam is the most misogynistic, homophobic and otherwise intolerant religion in the world at this particular time. And the way Islam insists on marrying religion to government makes it a fascist and totalitarian movement that needs to be opposed loudly and daily. Muslim Violence Awareness Year continues with this look at just a FEW of the most recent atrocities by Muslims.

islam-gene-wilderFebruary 16th: Sehwan, Pakistan – Muslim fascist bombers killed EIGHTY-EIGHT innocent people and injured over TWO HUNDRED FIFTY more. 

February 19th: Mogadishu, Somalia – An Islamofascist suicide bomber killed THIRTY-FOUR innocent people and injured over FIFTY more.  Continue reading

MERCHANT SHIPS (424-421 B.C.) BY ARISTOPHANES

With Boycott-mania sweeping the country what better time for this look at the fragmentary remains of this ancient Greek Comedy by Aristophanes?

Ancient Greek Merchant Ship

Ancient Greek Merchant Ship

Balladeer’s Blog presents another examination of an ancient Greek political satire. In this case it is one of those works of Aristophanes which have survived only in very fragmentary condition.

MERCHANT SHIPS  

Merchant Ships was written and publicly staged in approximately 424 B.C. to 421 B.C. according to the available data. It was another of Aristophanes’ comedies protesting the pointlessness of the Greek city-states warring among themselves instead of uniting against the encroachments of the Persian Empire.

I can’t help but view this particular comedy in light of my own country’s current plight of having the rival criminal gangs called the Democratic and Republican Parties pointlessly rob the country blind and run it into the ground while virtually ignoring external threats.

In this comedy the captains of two separate merchant ships – one from Athens and one from their foe Sparta – have grown weary of the pointless conflict and make a separate peace with each other. They and their crew members get to spend the play enjoying the food and drink from their cargoes and living out a metaphorical return to the prosperous days before the Peloponnesian War when peace reigned among the various Greek city-states.

Franchises aka Merchant Ships

For a modern-day adaptation (as opposed to a straight translation) the situation could be depicted by having a Chick Fil-A restaurant right next to a Starbucks coffee shop. The managers and employees of these stereotypically Republican (Chick Fil-A) and stereotypically Democratic (Starbucks) establishments could grow tired of the political feuding, especially since both political parties often call for boycotts of the opposing business.   Continue reading

FANTASTIC FILMS TO SHOCK HOLLYWOOD

Hollywoodland

Hollywoodland

Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the only site on the web that is truly non-partisan in its criticism of Liberals and Conservatives.

As I have often pointed out in the past there are no such things as right and wrong, there are simply things that a culture finds acceptable and things that a culture frowns upon. Six decades ago Hollywood films conformed to the tired Conservative cliches of Eisenhower’s America and earlier years. Today Hollywood films conform to the tired Liberal cliches of the Political Correctness Police.

As always fringe filmmaking is where the courageous storytelling is to be found. The gutless, pandering Hollywood studios all make cookie- cutter movies lacking any sort of diversity in their worldview. Long ago it was uniformly mindless Conservative films being churned out by the dozens. In recent decades it’s been uniformly mindless Liberal films being churned out by the dozens. So let’s proceed with this light- hearted look at movies no Hollywood studio would touch today.

Crimson ImamNot Coming Soon – THE CRIMSON IMAM – A heroic Muslim woman dons a red costume and mask, then takes to the streets of her Muslim community punishing men who physically abuse women in the name of the outdated dictates of their religion.

Calling herself the Crimson Imam she becomes a nationwide role model and inspires a large-scale feminist movement within Islam. Eventually women and gay people are embraced by Islam, with female clergy and gay marriages commonplace and with abortion rights a new Muslim priority.

What You’d See Instead – THE CRIMSON NUN – A heroic Christian woman dons a red habit and mask, then takes to the streets of her Christian community punishing priests who molest children and Continue reading

LLOYD MARCUS DEFENDS TRUMP, WHILE ANTI-TRUMP LIES GROW MORE DERANGED BY THE DAY

lloyd-marcusLike Balladeer’s Blog pointed out last year the increasingly unhinged Anti-Trump Right, the American Left and their Corporate Media allies have accomplished the seemingly impossible: they’ve turned Donald Trump into a sympathetic underdog. 

Oh, I know the purple-faced and rabid Trump-haters love to dwell on his supposedly low Approval Ratings, which range from 40% to 55% but after the media’s biased election polls were SO wrong last year most Americans just admit that slanted polling means we have no way of knowing what Trump’s REAL Approval Ratings are.

This past weekend the Donald’s obsessed enemies from BOTH PARTIES distorted the President’s reference to the Muslim raping and violence in Sweden (supported by multiple reports over the years, especially recently following many Swedish police breaking their enforced silence). Since the Anti-Trump loons don’t feel that rapes and violent crimes count as “terrorism” they are pretending Trump was outrageously wrong.

Remember last year when a Muslim fascist used a makeshift explosive in New York City and Trump called it “a bomb” but our insane corporate media acted like Trump was “wrong” and “irresponsible” because they felt such a cobbled-together explosive device should not have been referred to as “a bomb.” Pro-Islamist Trump-haters aren’t shrewd political animals, they’re more like barely adequate proofreaders. If that.   

lloyd-marcus-2At any rate, Lloyd Marcus penned a terrific item defending Trump and pointing out how the members of America’s notoriously corrupt political establishment are waging a propoganda war on this de facto Third Party President.

The link is below but first some excerpts:

“There is an unprecedented effort by the fake news media; Obama; George Soros; the Democratic Party, conservative NeverTrumps; establishment elites; Hollywood; assorted leftist groups; and traitorous GOP Washington, D.C. status quo defenders to take down our new president.”

“Am I advocating that we blindly rubber-stamp everything Trump does?  Absolutely not.  I am saying it emboldens our enemies when folks on our side join leftists in nitpicking Trump at every turn.  Obviously, NeverTrumps still do not realize what’s at stake and the evil we are dealing with on the left.”

“Leftists deem causing pain, suffering, and the loss of American lives minor consequences …”

lloyd-marcus-3 Cancer patients lost their life-saving doctors due to Obamacare.  Leftists didn’t care.  Four Americans were tortured and murdered in Benghazi for Obama’s re-election.  Not only did leftists not care, but Obama’s minions repeatedly lied about it on national TV.”

“If leftists care about American lives, why do they celebrate Democrats refusing to pass Kate’s Law, which protects Americans from illegal alien multiple criminal offenders?”

VICE PRESIDENTS – THE ULTIMATE SECOND BANANAS

John Adams

John Adams called the Vice Presidency “the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived.” A very old joke went “Once there were two brothers. One ran away to sea and the other became Vice President. Neither was ever heard from again.”

In George S Kaufman’s and Morrie Ryskind’s classic stage work Of Thee I Sing one of the characters turns down an offer to be Vice President because he’s ashamed to have his mother know. He’s persuaded to accept the office when it’s pointed out that if he doesn’t tell her about it she’ll never find out.

The office has featured eminently forgettable figures as well as comic relief buffoons like Dan “The Global Village Idiot” Quayle and Joe “Koo Koo For Cocoa Puffs” Biden. In the light-hearted style of Balladeer’s Blog’s look at U.S. Presidents here’s a look at the men who got to hang around and see if the country’s Chief Executive wound up six feet under. I’m omitting VP’s who went on to actually become President, so no John Adams or Thomas Jefferson, etc. Happy Presidents Day Weekend!

Served Under: Monroe Continue reading
