PUCK MAGAZINE: THE POLITICAL JANUS

puck joseph kepplerJanuary is an appropriate month for this latest post about Puck magazine (1871-1918). Here at Balladeer’s Blog I’ve long made clear my fascination with that political humor magazine. Puck political cartoons – especially from the covers – are still much sought-after and I own a few myself.

The magazine was a German language publication targeted at new arrivals from Europe and the cartoons stood out early on. There is no language barrier to satirical political cartoons, so even Americans who spoke no German could follow the editorial drift of those humorous illustrations. In 1877 Puck began publishing both English AND German language editions. Here’s a cartoon from its pro-Theodore Roosevelt heyday depicting the wildly different opinions of the bombastic, “rock the boat of political corruption” T.R.

AFRICAN-AMERICAN BOB JOHNSON WITH MORE PRAISE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S OPPORTUNITY COUNCIL

Bob Johnson and Trump latestDe facto Third Party President Donald Trump has done more for the working class and poor OF ALL COLORS than any other President in decades. As I’ve often mentioned, financially comfortable Democrats are every bit as callous toward the plight of the working class and the poor as the most bloated rich pig Republicans ever were.

President Trump’s latest Franklin Roosevelt-style move was his creation of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council. Black Entertainment Television founder Bob Johnson praised Trump highly for this Council, created on December 12th.

Poverty-stricken neighborhoods will be the focus in a “from the ground – up” quality of life improvement via jobs and training. Long before he was President, Trump often spear-headed initiatives like this with his assorted companies and just as often was awarded recognition by various African-American groups – even ones run by Al Sharpton.

Donald Trump never called racist till running against DemocratsRemember, Donald Trump is a former Democrat like me and so many others who were driven away by the Democrat Party’s emerging contempt for the working class. And as Republicans ALWAYS remind us, Trump is not a “real Republican.” (Which is why he got elected, actually.)

Like I often say, President Trump noticed that the Republicans weren’t doing anything useful with their political party apparatus so he decided to borrow it for awhile as a path to the Presidency. America’s bloated rich pigs – both Democrat AND Republican – will never forgive the Donald for helping the forgotten Americans.

This man has shown compassion and gotten positive results for the working class and the poor WHILE BEING ATTACKED RELENTLESSLY BY BOTH PARTIES JUST FOR BEING AN OUTSIDER TO THEIR CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE. Those of us who support Trump are not going to ignore that fact just because he is hated by crooked career politicians, brain-dead professional athletes and shallow, uninformed and emotionally unstable entertainers.

JOY BEHAR’S FAVORITE TRUMP BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS: TRUMP’S ENEMIES

Joy Behar IdiotJoy Behar, whose pitch-perfect impression of hate-filled, slobbering anti-Trump fascists has made her famous, recently told a Balladeer’s Blog reporter during an interview that never happened that she has a book recommendation for Christmas.

Joy Behar’s favorite Donald Trump book is titled Trump’s Enemies: How The Deep State Is Undermining The Presidency.

Trump's EnemiesJowly Joy enthusiastically called it “A terrific look at the cesspool of corruption which masquerades as the American government. De facto Third Party President Donald Trump is uniquely qualified to rock the crooked DC boat since he is NOT a career politician like all the other Made Members of America’s Criminal Class of Officeholders.” 

Or maybe I was the one who blurted that out. It’s all a blur now. But at any rate TRUMP’S ENEMIES can be bought HERE

DEMOCRATS’ LATEST BIGOTED RANTS BASHING BLACK PEOPLE FOR SUPPORTING PRESIDENT TRUMP

*** FIRST, ON A SIDE NOTE, BARACK OBAMA’S BORDER ENFORCERS ALSO USED TEAR GAS ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS 26 TIMES IN 2012 AND 27 TIMES IN 2013 AS WELL AS 3 MORE TIMES IN 2016. IF YOU DIDN’T COMPLAIN ABOUT BARRY DOING IT DON’T WHINE TO ME ABOUT TRUMP.

(PLUS BARRY’S MEN USED PEPPER SPRAY ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS 151 TIMES.) 

Trump and black people in maga hatsThe Democrats at the Boston Globe and the Washington Post recently spewed more venom at the way in which de facto Third Party President Donald Trump has attracted so many African-American voters. Rasmussen and other polls have had Trump’s support among voters of color as high as 40-plus percent, an ASTRONOMICAL number for any Republican not named Abraham Lincoln. 

Naturally that’s because President Trump is not a real Republican – the Republican trash in the Bush Family and at National Review never get tired of pointing that out. Since I despise both the Democrats AND the Republicans I LOVE the way that the Donald has been rocking the boat and championing the working class and the poor of all colors. The people abandoned by both major parties.

At any rate the pompous Democrat Supremacists at the Boston Globe and Washington Post are even blaming President Trump for the way that Republican candidates that he campaigned for got much higher percentages of the African-American vote than Republicans normally get. In various races the higher support from voters of color gave the (R) victory over the Democrat!  

Let’s talk specifics. Continue reading

VOTERS OF COLOR PROUDLY SUPPORTING PRESIDENT TRUMP

Trump supporterI meant to post this item several days ago. Better late than never. It features some black voters in #BLEXIT shirts (as in Black Exit from the Democrat Party, a parallel movement to #WALKAWAY) explaining to a reporter why they support President Trump. (As regular readers are aware I consider Trump a de facto Third Party President, which is one of the things I like about him since I dislike both major parties.)

DONALD DRAINS THE SWAMP: TERRIFIC BOOK FOR KIDS AND ADULTS ALIKE

Donald Drains The SwampEric Metaxas has launched his new series of books about a heroic caveman named Donald who defies corrupt swamp creatures to save his people.

Donald Drains The Swamp is the first installment. Ostensibly a children’s book this clever work will also appeal to adults in the most masterful way since Walt Kelly’s Pogo the Possum combined child-like whimsy with incisive political commentary.

Needless to say, the swamp creatures encountered by Metaxas’ hero Donald are much more malevolent than Pogo’s acquaintances in the Okefenokee Swamp. I don’t want to give away too many jokes from this gem of a book, but I would recommend it for all ages. The illustrations are by Tim Raglin.

YUMIKO BLASCHKO: TRUMP’S POLICIES ARE WORKING WELL FOR WOMEN & MINORITIES

Trump and black supportYumiko Blaschko is one of the countless women of color courageously defying the outdated and intolerant Democrats. Blaschko is a senior associate at the McGonigle Group.

Hopefully even more of us former Democrats will #WALKAWAY. A link to Yumiko’s entire article is below, but first some excerpts:  

“President Trump’s policies have been a good thing for all in American society, whites and non-whites included.”

This unique time has seen unemployment for different minority communities fall to levels not seen in decades.” 

“Additionally, blue-collar workers have been hired at the highest rate in over 30 years.”

Rather than blindly accepting talking points from party establishment figures, minority communities need to take into consideration how the conditions for them and their families have improved under the Trump economy.  There’s nothing wrong with taking a look with fresh eyes at your personal situation and judging for yourself …” Continue reading
