Balladeer’s Blog’s Best of 2017 continues with the best from April.

Donald Trump rock starNUMBER ONE – We have a tie at Number One – First, President Donald Trump, America’s first de facto Third Party President, has been doing more for the working class of ALL colors than the Democrats or Republicans have in decades. CLICK HERE  

Second, an item about Left-Wing Archie Bunkers who refuse to join the 21st Century. CLICK HERE 

Psycho Gothic LolitaNUMBER TWO – Up next on this countdown is my review of the Japanese horror film PSYCHO GOTHIC LOLITA (2010).

Blood, guts, silly jokes and almost non-stop action are – as always for J-Horror – present in this very entertaining film.


hippyNUMBER THREE – Balladeer’s Blog often deals with the way Left-Wing Archie Bunkers from the 1960s generation distorted the educational system into centers for irrational thought.

Those Faculty Lounge Fascists abuse their positions by browbeating students to agree with their political prejudices. CAL-BERKELEY is their Nuremberg – CLICK HERE

Begotten 4NUMBER FOUR – Another movie review is in fourth place.

This time around it’s my review of the bizarre, horrific movie BEGOTTEN (1990). This is definitely a very unusual film that is definitely not for the squeamish.  

For that review just CLICK HERE 

trump-and-hillary-map-behind-themNUMBER FIVE – Every day that Hillary Clinton is NOT President is great! My Hillary Clinton interview dealt with her defeat at the hands of President Donald Trump, the New Franklin Roosevelt.

I’m very, very ill today so here’s just a look at the Best of March here at Balladeer’s Blog.

bill-paxtonNUMBER ONE – With the passing of eccentric actor Bill Paxton I wanted to do an appropriately weird movie of his to give him an authentic Balladeer’s Blog sendoff.

The movie I decided on was Paxton’s often forgotten flick TAKING TIGER MOUNTAIN (1983).

The link to that film review is right HERE

sjws-always-lieNUMBER TWO – SJW’s are among the saddest and most pathetic people alive.

Though they are nothing more than petty informants whose only power comes from the higher authorities they run sniveling to, they laughably consider themselves to be “activists.”


TrainNUMBER THREE – In March I reviewed the 1888 novel A MEXICAN MYSTERY.

That work of Ancient Science Fiction was ahead of its time and dealt with a train engine so well-designed it achieved sentience and began attacking, killing and even feeding on human beings to fuel itself.

Long before Skynet, there was “the Engine.” Click HERE 

Mascot with demo and repub headsNUMBER FOUR – Just as Balladeer’s Blog features Liberals moving on from that outdated label I also feature Conservatives moving on from THAT outdated label.

Here’s a self-described Conservative fed up with the likes of Karl “Miss Piggy” Rove, Kevin Williamson, George Will, Bill Kristol and the repulsive Bush family. Click HERE

TNTNUMBER FIVE – Superheroes are everywhere these days.

Among Balladeer’s Blog’s most popular posts in recent years have been the ones dealing with neglected superheroes and superheroines.

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

Here’s Balladeer’s Blog’s best from February.

EisenhowerNUMBER ONE – Since President’s Day weekend is in February it’s no surprise that the top post that month was my look at PRESIDENTS FROM EISENHOWER TO TRUMP.

I offered quick, light-hearted and critical shots at each one of those presidents. As regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know, I despise both the Democrats (DemCorp) and the Republicans (RepubCorp) so be ready. CLICK HERE 

bruce-boxleitner-as-frank-buck-3NUMBER TWO – One of my Ancient Science Fiction items came in second for the month of February, IN SEARCH OF THE UNKNOWN (1904).

This blog post looked at the series of short stories about Gilland the Zoologist. “If Indiana Jones Was A Zoologist” is a glib description of this collection of tales. The heroic Gilland encounters humanoid amphibians, woolly mammoths, dinosaurs which hatch from preserved eggs and go on a rampage, plus more. CLICK HERE   



NUMBER THREE – My review of TRUMBO energized people on all sides of the issues as I examined the cosmic-level hypocrisy of the film.

The political left feels that Blacklisting people and ruining careers is okay when THEY do it, but reprehensible when anyone else does it. CLICK HERE

man-in-the-black-cloak-4NUMBER FOUR – From the 1886 story THE MAN IN THE BLACK CLOAK I examined the title figure – a neglected forerunner of Pulp heroes like Judex and the Shadow.

For this forgotten serial from Boys of New York magazine CLICK HERE 

teresa-mullNUMBER FIVE – Coming in in fifth place for February was this item about a female research fellow and her courageous examination of viewpoint harassment and discrimination on American college campuses by Faculty Lounge Fascists.

December is the month for retrospectives of the calendar year. Here’s a look at Balladeer’s Blog’s Best from January.

nyctalope-2NUMBER ONE – It wasn’t even close! Far and away the most popular blog post from January was my examination of Jean de la Hire’s neglected Pulp Hero, the Nyctalope (“Nightwalker”). This cyborg hero debuted very early in the 20th Century – as in before World War One!

Years before Doc Savage and others, the Nyctalope (Leo Saint-Clair) battled world-conquering supervillains, alien menaces, lost Amazon civilizations, Far Eastern Blood Cults and much, much more! From Earth to Mars to Earth’s non-existent second moon called Rhea follow this criminally overlooked figure into action! CLICK HERE 

asra-nomani-3NUMBER TWO – The ladies in the Real-Life League of Extraordinary Women always get a big reaction from readers and this entry was no exception!

The heroic Asra Nomani dove into the fray unafraid, confounding those Left-Wing Archie Bunkers who feel that ONLY Muslims who hate the Western World are “authentic.” For the blog post on this remarkable lady CLICK HERE 

no-survivors-please-2NUMBER THREE – Balladeer’s Blog’s reviews of bad and/or obscure movies are among my favorite pieces to write. For January the film review that stood out to you readers was this one:

No Survivors Please (1964) – A black & white sci fi curiosity from West Germany. The film dealt with an alien invasion but was – to say the least – different from virtually any other alien invasion flick. At least in presentation, if not in ideas. For the actual review CLICK HERE 

Apollo 17 patchNUMBER FOUR – Legendary Apollo Astronaut Eugene Cernan passed away in January of 2017.

In memory of this space pioneer Balladeer’s Blog ran a synopsis of Cernan’s Apollo 17 mission – the last Apollo  flight to visit the moon.

As a bonus I examined five OTHER Apollo missions, too.

For all that moon-madness CLICK HERE 

NUMBER FIVE – PAT CONDELL needs no introduction, and on Inauguration Day back in January I re-ran Pat’s Election Day 2016 monologue about how it HAD to be Trump. This post was very popular but I can’t take credit for any of it – it is ALL Pat’s material. BUT HE NAILED IT! CLICK BELOW TO HEAR HIM:

Balladeer’s Blog despises the Democrats and the Republicans equally but right now there’s no denying that the Democrats are far more pompous and more in need of being cut down to size. U.S. career politicians are white-collar criminals.

Corinne BrownDEMOCRAT CORINNE BROWN SENT TO PRISON FOR RUNNING A FAKE CHARITY AS A SLUSH FUND – If you’re like me you’ve lost count on how many Democrats in office commit this same type of  crime. In this case Democrat Corinne Brown, a Florida Representative to Congress until her electoral defeat last November, was sentenced to 5 years in prison plus restitution payments when she gets out.

Per News 4 in Jacksonville, FL:

“At its core, the case was focused on One Door, a group billed as a charity for disadvantaged children that raised more than $800,000 over a four-year stretch. In fact, most of that money benefited Brown personally. Of the $833,000 raised, only $1,200 went toward scholarships. ***

Corinne Brown and Crooked Barry“The rest paid for things such as events and travel for Brown and those in her orbit, as well as dozens of cash deposits to her personal bank account and a range of frivolous expenses, like nearly $14,000 for Beyonce tickets and $15,000 for a suite at a Jaguars-Redskins game.

“A jury found Brown guilty … of 18 counts of federal mail, wire and tax fraud for soliciting donations for the fake charity, using that charity as a “slush fund” for herself and her associates, and lying on her taxes and congressional disclosure forms. (News4Jax) ”

Corinne Brown and Crooked HillaryAh, Democrats and their “Peculiar Institutions!” Like Fake Charities and so many others.

So when does Hillary Clinton get sentenced, since she did the same thing plus other offenses. Talk about White Privilege! DRAIN THE SWAMP! Continue reading

Jose ZarateSan Francisco is Democrat-run, like other cities that call themselves “Sanctuary Cities” but are really Illegal Immigrant Colonies. The entire nation has heard the news about how the FIVE TIMES DEPORTED illegal immigrant who COMMITTED MULTIPLE ADDITIONAL CRIMES and who was tried for the killing of Kate Steinle was charged with murder but found guilty of a lesser offense.

I wasn’t going to bother writing about it, since a jury verdict is a jury verdict, but the unabashed GLOATING of Democrats in politics and the media made me change my mind. 

Kate Steinle’s killer entered and reentered the country illegally multiple times because of our perpetually unsecured southern border. He would not have been in San Francisco (where he killed Steinle) AT ALL if not for the fact that it is one of the Democrat cities which go by the motto: “Illegal immigrants, right or wrong!”

Democrat sloganSan Francisco and its sister Sanctuary Cities/ Illegal Immigrant Colonies refuse to cooperate with our country’s Immigration enforcement authorities by turning over illegal immigrants for hearings. That left Steinle as yet another of the countless victims of the American Left’s politics of spite.

Democrats are APPLAUDING the verdict, despite the fact that the killer CONFESSED. To Democrats – and I’m ashamed to say I used to be one – ANY victory for an illegal immigrant over a U.S. citizen is looked on favorably, no matter how many lives are lost and no matter how many women are raped.

Mull that over. Look up Jose Inez Garcia Zarate and read about his many previous crimes, too. The American Left want entire CITIES where felons like him are immune to immigration (and apparently ALL OTHER) laws. Compare that to their treatment of and their hatred of innocent people who simply oh, say … voted for President Trump. Or who refuse to hate him as irrationally as Democrats do. Continue reading
