#BLEXIT CONTINUES: ANOTHER BLACK TRUMP SUPPORTER PROUDLY SPEAKS HIS MIND

Trump and black support#BLEXIT is a kindred movement to #WALKAWAY and is about the way Urban Intellectuals Matter. #BLEXIT and #BLACKLIVESMAGA center around black people who add their own “voices” (to use one of the Democrats’ most nauseating clichés to tweak them) to an ongoing national discussion.

That discussion is about the intolerant way Democrats treat black people like they MUST obey them and MUST conform to the political opinions that privileged white Democrats have chosen for them.

This video features another Martin Luther King Person of Courage openly expressing his support for President Trump. Continue reading

PRESIDENT TRUMP: ONE MAN AGAINST AMERICA’S CESSPOOL OF CORRUPTION

donald-trump-and-flagThe daily saga of the unlikeliest hero of them all continues! As I’ve often pointed out President Donald Trump is America’s first de facto Third Party President since he has to battle the corrupt, bought and paid-for office-holders in both major parties. In addition Trump has helped the working class and the poor in ways that no other president from either party has done in decades. (see below)

President Trump is not a career politician, which will never change. Even if he gets reelected in 2020 there is no changing the fact that he was never a career politician. He is not a “Made Member” of either of the gangs of white-collar criminals called Democrats and Republicans. He did not spend his life working in the cesspool of corruption that masquerades as our government.

Latinos for Trump phone ladyAnd how can you NOT love the way he kept both Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton out of the White House?  

Brian C Joondeph wrote a terrific piece titled Trump is an Army of One. The link is below, but first some excerpts:

The truth was he was never a Democrat or a Republican, at least as they are defined today. Instead he is a problem solver, beholden to no one and not part of the political establishment. His loyalty is only to America and those who voted for him, not to the donor classes …”

Trump supporterHe was not part of either party’s ruling cabal, having never held elective office or political appointment. He did not campaign or arrive at the White House with an entourage of advisors and staff, from previous stints as a governor or senator. Trump was an army of one.”

Fortunately, Trump is a fighter. No other Republican could withstand the daily blistering barrage from the media and both political parties ganging up on him to destroy his presidency.” Continue reading

QUOTE: “PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DONE MORE FOR BLACK PEOPLE THAN ANY OTHER PRESIDENT IN OUR LIFETIME”

Trump and Diamond and SilkAfrican-American activists known as Diamond and Silk (Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson) once again visited de facto Third Party President Donald Trump at the White House this week with Black History Month coming to a close. (See below)

Donald Trump never called racist till running against DemocratsThe ladies pointed out to their social media followers that President Trump “has done more for black people than any other president of our lifetime.” Diamond and Silk even included a note possibly tweaking the robotic Democrat Winston Smiths who slant history to please “The Party” by adding “There are those that write history but President Trump is making history.”

I like that statement. It puts me in mind of “Those who can – do. Those who can’t – teach.” And let’s face it, President Trump has done more for the working class and poor of all races than any other president in our lifetime. Trump is the new FDR, the new JFK, the new Teddy Roosevelt and the new Harry Truman.    Continue reading

AFRICAN-AMERICANS PRAISE PRESIDENT TRUMP AT BLACK HISTORY MONTH RECEPTION

catherine toney and trump 2Yesterday a White House reception for Black History Month saw woman of color Catherine Toney, the first person freed under President Trump’s criminal justice reforms, speaking. She joined assorted other African-American leaders in praising the Trump administration’s many successes for the black community.

donald-trump-and-flagSome of those African-American leaders added praise for President Trump’s activities on behalf of the poor and working class of ALL colors. (Note from Balladeer: As always, Trump is the new FDR)   

Clarence HendersonCivil rights activist Clarence Henderson of THE FREDERICK DOUGLASS FOUNDATION added praise for the president’s border wall stand to his remarks, saying “You know Nehemiah was told by God to build a wall and that’s what you’re doing. Amen.” (Yes, I’m a non-believer but I’m quoting him. Pretend he said someone was told by “Allah” instead of “God” if you’re a hypersensitive Democrat.)

Robert WoodsonCivil Rights leader Bob Woodson thanked President Trump for taking on the political establishment: “I just want to thank God and President Trump for knocking over the tables in the temples and attacking the status quo that is hostile to the interests of poor people.” (Trump is the new FDR) Continue reading

MOTHER JONES: PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MANY HEROES IN ONE

mother-jonesAs another Presidents Day wraps up here’s a take from a true working class heroine. Mary Harris Jones, the legendary labor organizer from the 1890s onward, also known as “the Miner’s Angel” and “Mother Jones,” spoke to Balladeer’s Blog yet again, despite being dead since 1930. 

BALLADEER’S BLOG: Well, hello again! I always enjoy our talks.  

MOTHER JONES: I’m glad to hear it, sonny! I continue to be very impressed with the way President Trump – the new FDR and the new Harry Truman – continues to scrap with the same kind of plutocratic oppressors I always fought.

Trump is SerpicoBB: I admit the stench from Washington, DC is amazing. “Draining the Swamp” as Trump calls it, is demonstrating the depth of corruption and outright criminal activity the Democrats and Republicans are responsible for. It took a de facto Third Party President like Trump to take the first necessary steps.

MJ: You know it, young man! No Democrat or Republican would have rocked the boat like this! I think President Trump is like many heroes in one.

BB: Well, I think “hero” might be too strong a word for Trump, but –

MJ: Yes, yes, I know I’m more enthusiastic about him than you are, but I want you to just listen for awhile.

BB: Okay.

Franklin RooseveltMJ: First off, President Trump is like Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR was looking out for the working class and the poor, so rich fat cat scum tried to destroy him like they’re doing with Donald Trump. They even tried the VERIFIED Businessman’s Coup plot against FDR.

Right now the way that rich pigs like Tom Steyer are trying to overturn an election they lost is disgusting and is a threat to all elections of the future. If fat cats like Steyer or the Koch Brothers don’t like the way the votes went, they’ll pull a “soft coup” as it’s called.

SECOND, President Trump is like Harry S Truman. Harry gave ’em Hell every chance he could and weak-kneed sissy boys like today’s Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell clutched their pearls and reached for the smelling salts. Trump shocks more Republican and Democrat trash in one week than good old Harry did in his entire presidency!  

BrubakerTHIRD, President Trump is like that Robert Redford fella when he played Brubaker! Like Trump, Brubaker was trying to clean out a virtual sewer of corrupt officialdom. Even if the scumbags fighting Trump oust him, it will be like the ending of Brubaker, when the prisoners – or American citizens in Trump’s case – gathered around to pay him respect.

The prisoners giving the departing Brubaker a slow clap of good bye was an acknowledgement that the man had tried to help them and to fight the crooked politicians and rich pigs abusing them. President Trump’s end might be like that if the Establishment criminals succeed in driving him from office.

BB: That’s a very profound comparison. Even if – like Brubaker – President Trump’s bottom line accomplishment is to raise awareness in all of us about the NEED to fight the white collar criminals who have hijacked our political system, there is a certain dignity in that. A dignity that people like Hillary Clinton and Paul Ryan could never understand.  

MJ: Good lad, Balladeer, but I have plenty more heroes to compare with President Trump, so pipe down. 

BB: By all means, carry on.

SerpicoMJ: FOURTH, President Trump is like Serpico. The real-life Serpico, not the weak sauce movie version of the man. Like Frank Serpico, President Trump is the only one refusing to play business as usual and just get bought off.

And like Serpico, even Trump’s presumed allies – in his case the Republican crooks like Mitch McConnell and others – are setting up Donald to be taken down by even bigger crooks who will be glad to do the dirty work.

BB: Now that’s a bit strong, don’t you thi – Continue reading

1912: BATTLE OF THE THREE PRESIDENTS

masc chair and bottleHappy Presidents Day Weekend! Balladeer’s Blog’s seasonal posts continue with this look at the presidential election of 1912.

I won’t bury this item in unnecessary detail to the point where it becomes boring. My emphasis will be on its three-way battle’s relevance to us today. 

Woodrow WilsonDEMOCRAT: Woodrow Wilson, the victor. To this very day many Republicans blame Wilson for starting the country on its path toward all the things they don’t like.

They ignore the fact that their own party’s movers and shakers of the time spitefully ensured Wilson’s victory by refusing to accept the popular Theodore Roosevelt as the Republican candidate.

That drove him to the Third Party called the Progressive Party, thus splitting the anti-Wilson vote in such a way that enabled the Democrat to win.

Theodore RooseveltPROGRESSIVE: Former Republican President Theodore Roosevelt had come out of retirement to run again because he was thoroughly disenchanted with his hand-picked successor, incumbent Republican President William Howard Taft.

The reason? Theodore felt that Taft was undoing the few inroads that he (Theodore) had made against the moneyed rich pig class. Republican tycoons of the time often expressed their feeling that Teddy was a traitor to his class – an accusation that they would REALLY overuse against Theodore’s Democrat cousin Franklin Roosevelt decades later.  

This is similar to the way current President Donald Trump is often attacked by today’s bloated rich pigs, both Republican AND Democrat, because of the few inroads that HE has made against his fellows in the moneyed class. Some of the rich pigs of Teddy’s era openly referred to the way they generally carry America’s elected officials around in their pockets by saying “We bought the son of a bitch but he wouldn’t stay bought.”        Continue reading

CALM DOWN, PEOPLE, 31 OTHER PRESIDENTIALLY DECLARED EMERGENCIES ARE STILL IN EFFECT

panic-signHello everyone! As always I find it humbling when so many overseas readers ask me for my honest, non-partisan take on our political scene here in America. I will be 100% sincere with this blog post about the ridiculous overreaction to de facto Third Party President Trump declaring a national emergency regarding the flood of illegal immigrants and illegal drugs pouring across our border with Mexico, a virtual narco-state at this point given how the Cartels run wild.

PRESIDENTIALLY DECLARED NATIONAL EMERGENCIES – As always, America’s corporate media and our white-collar criminals called career politicians are needlessly whipping up a frenzy just because it’s Trump – an outsider rocking the boat – who is in office right now. Presidentially declared national emergencies are much less than advertised.

NEARLY SIXTY SUCH NATIONAL EMERGENCIES HAVE BEEN DECLARED SINCE 1976.

THIRTY-ONE OF THOSE DECLARED NATIONAL EMERGENCIES ARE STILL IN EFFECT.

THIRTEEN OF THOSE NATIONAL EMERGENCIES WERE DECLARED BY BARACK OBAMA.

OBVIOUSLY, SINCE VIRTUALLY NOBODY EVEN KNEW ABOUT THOSE NATIONAL EMERGENCY ORDERS STILL BEING IN EFFECT THOSE EMERGENCIES DO NOT MEAN WE ARE INCHES AWAY FROM A DICTATORSHIP.

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsTHE MAIN PEOPLE SPREADING PANIC ABOUT THIS SITUATION ARE THE TWO LEAST TRUSTWORTHY ELEMENTS OF AMERICA – THE MEDIA AND CAREER POLITICIANS. (I don’t care about shallow, uninformed and emotionally unstable entertainers.)

Below is just one link where you can check this out for yourself. There are plenty more, like at the Federal Registry. Continue reading
